I rarely use spies, because spending the gold on research is a much saner approach, usually.

Anyway, some spies actions are quite powerful (poison water supply for example can half the population of a size 8 - 12 city. AI used this against me once, not very enjoyable). Also, destroying a tile improvement is another good use (eg in wartime, depriving the other side of their strategic resources). There's a nice thread on this at CivFanatics. (Here's another one.)

I know this thread has been inactive for some time but....
 
My advise for this game is : Build your infrastructure and defenses before concentrating on offensive units. Research as much as you can. Never enter into a war you cant win (take out smaller civs first).
 
have fun!
