Karclay ll< nii-v - Citizenship.
Washington, November 13th.— When
Congress meets next month an interesting
case will he presented the first day of the
session, in the shape of a protest against
the seating of Barclay Henley, principal]. y
because it is alleged that he is not a citizen
of the United States. Considerable pains,
have been taken by tho opponents of Hen
ley to show that in lsii4 he became a nat
uralized subject of Mexico, and swore al
legiance to Maximilian as such. Indica
lions are that the battle will be transferred
to Washington this winter, and. as both
sides are desirous of success, Borne inter
esting developments may he looked for.
One feature of the campaign will be the
circulation of a pamphlet inimical to Hen
ley, bearing the following inscription:
"An old straw— The adventures of Hon
Barclay Henley, M. C— How he left his
family in California and immigrated to
Mexico in 1864— His fear to return as an
American citizen -How he employed Max
imilian to Mexicanize him— How the Km
peror liberated him from the galling yoke of
American citizenship and made him a Mex
ican subject." Copies of this pamphlet
have already boon circulated in California
and some of them have found their way

The Question of Revising tiie Rules of
the Next House of Kepreseuttttiveg.
Washington, November l.tth. — The<iues
tion of revising the rules of the next
House of Representatives will come before
that boiiy early in the session, and with a
strong probability that quite a number of
radical changes hi the present parliament
ary machinery will he made. The Com
mittee on rules, when appointed, wili have
the subject in charge, and as Mr. Carlisle is
known to favor 1 important modifications of
the rules, curiosity is felt regarding the
composition of the new committee. In
the last Congress its members were the
•Speaker. Representatives Randall, Black
burn, Keifer ami Reed. Mr. Keif'er baa
been retired to private life, and Mr. Black
burn has been chosen Senator. There are
two vacancies to till, presuming that
Messrs. Randall and Reed will be appointed
Mr. Carlisle will, of course, remain at the
bead of the committees. Mr. Springer
may be chosen to till Blackburn's place
and the Republican honor may fall upon
the Shoulders of either Judge Kel ley Mr
Hiscock or Mr. Cannon, of Illinois. Henry
H. Smith, Journal Clerk of the House oi
Representatives, compiler of the official
manual and rules, and one of the best au
thorities upon parliamentary law and pro
cedure in the I [<Mise. said to your corres
pondent to-day, that he believed the rules
would be revised by the next Congress, and
thai a revision would greatly facilitate the
transaction of all business. He believes
that the division of the duties of the Ap
propriation Committee would be ad
vantageous, and that the delays attending
tue appropriation bill until toward the
close oi the session will be obviated
A Uelic of the Oulnn Murder Trial.
New York, November 13th.— The deci
sion opaline the default rendered thia
morning in tlio City Court, grew out of the
kiihn^uf Ali Moon, an inoflfenaiveChina
man, by Daniel Qoinn, a drunken ruffian,
who was afterwar.l committed and sent to
the State Prison Cur life. OngGong brought
suit to recover $105, which he claims Ong
Sick promised to pay him for assisting in
prosecuting an<i convicting Quinn. Ong
Sick to!<l dim this money would he prtS
cured from the Six Companies of Califor
nia, lie was shown a paper by Out; Sick
by which the companies guaranteed to pay
a certain nun for the different grades of
conviction procured against any parties who
ought tall any Chinamen. One Sick pro
mised that if the Six Companies did not
give the money to Ong Gong, then Ong
Sick would pay it. The money was not
paid, and Ong Gong brought salt to obtain
judgment by default. Defendant afterward
appeared and declared he did not know the
nature of the papers served on him in the
suit, and therefore did not make his appear
ance. The Court granted the motion open
ing the default, and allowing Ong Sick to
appear and to oppose suits.
George W. Cable.
Xew York, November 13th.— George W.
i lable said at a banquet f,'ivon to him by the
Lincoln Club, ol Connecticut, that he* had
not changed 'tis residence from the South
to the North, because, in the face of his
writings, the South was not a congenial
locality. He admitted, however, that the
•• noisy portion of the South," as he styled
his critics, wanted him to confess that the
truths he had uttered concerning the i •;
ored race were held by him alone, when
the fact was he bad only spoken the mind
of many thoughtful men of the South.
Amid all the protestation and condemna
tion that have come to him there have
come many words of encouragement and
cheer from all parts of the South. The
men who think with him are not few.
They have learned that the freedman is
protected by his ballot and could not be
protected without it. They have learned

Chicago, November 13th. — Tn the dairy
department of the Fat Stock Show at the
Exposition, considerable excitement and
indignation was noticeable this afternoon
over the action of the State Hoard of Agri
culture in deciding to allow buttcrine and
oleomargarine manufacturers space in the
building for their exhibits. The butter
men denounced this action vehem<
The butterine men established themselves
near the grand entrance, and before ni^ht

National Convention of Dairymen, this
afternoon, a resolution was adopted request

it based its action. The affair is regarded
as having brought the fight between the

Frichttul Coinlagration iv Galveston.
(jai.veston, November 13th. —At 1:40
o'clock this morning the most destructive
tire in the history of tialveston broke out
iv a sm.-U! foundry and car-rtpairing shop
on the north side of the avemie known as
the Strand, between Sixteenth and Seven
teenth streets. A fierce gale from the north
was blowing at the time, and the llames
spread with liirhning rapidity to both the
adjoining buildings, one being a grocery
store, the other an humble dwelling, in a
twinkling the long, fierce tongues of lire
had crossed the street, and two more dwell
ings were in (lumps, the inmates barely
escaping with their lives. At this moment
the lire department got two streams going,
but they were of no avail. The heat be
came so intense that the firemen had to
abandon their positions, and the wind arose
and carried myriads of sparks to the prem
ises east oi the avenue, and a general alarm
was sounded. In half an hour two blocks
were burning fiercely, and by 3 o'clock it
was seen that a emit conflagration was
upon the city. The people tor squares
around, on either side of the burning
blocks, became panic-stricken, and the
piercing cries of frightened women could
l)i heard above the hoarse din of the tire
and the mournful wind. At half-past 3
the fire had leaped three blocks distant
from its starting point, but in a per
fectly straight line, being confined to
the blocks bounded by Sixteenth and
Seventeenth streets. About 4 o'clock the
tire began to spread to the east and to the
west of Sixteenth and Seventeenth streets.
The wind rose to a gale and pandemonium
reigned. Fur a time it seemed as though the
entire eastern half of the city was doomed.
The lire spread rapidly to the southward,
licking up blocks of elegant residences
hastily abandoned by their inmates. By .>
o'clock it had reached Broadway, which
threads tiie center of the island, running
east and west. At 7 o'clock the wind gave
signs of dying away, and shortly it began
to shift, then to decrease, until by 8 o'clock
only a fair breeze was blowing.. Bat by
this time the tire had eaten its way !■)
Avenue 0, where, :it U.W o'clock, it. seemed
to exhaust itself, and the firemen coming
up, checked its farther ravages at thia point,
or within two blocks of the Gulf. At 11:20
the tire bad reached the beach, about a
mile and a half from the starting place,
arid six or seven blocks were consumed.
Over TOO residences wen; burned. The
burned district covers 52 blocks, seven of
which are not entirely swept clear. It is
sixteen blocks in depth and averages a
width of three blocks. From Avenue A
to Avenue E, for four squares, the burned
dw« Uinga were occupied almost entirely by
the poorer class, several families being
crowded into a single house in this
strip. From Avenue E, however, the
burned district includes the wealth
iest and most fashionable portion
of the city. One hundred elegantly fur
nished mansions are in ruins. Many of
these residences had beautiful gardens at
tached. All manner of estimates are to be
heard at this time. The I"it >- Assessor says
the taxable value of the dwellings burned
is $850,000. This makes the actual value
of the property $1,500,000, which, perhaps,
represents the loss in money. The in
surance Is estimated at fUHt.OOo, although
some insurance men who have walked "Vi r
the district place the insurance at $800,000.
So far as can be learned no! a single acci
(K-nt occurred. The loss In personal and
household property can never be estima
ted, and is not included in the previous
The hotels are filled with homeless peo
ple, and the citizens' committee is now at
work apportioning families to the rooms
and premises vacated for their use. Every
vehicle in the city is :it work carrying
strewn furniture, bedding and pictures to
secure places. Thousands of people haunt
the burned district, looking among the
ruins for valuable keepsakes or jewelr#
hoping to find something left Business "is
entirely suspended. 'fin- calamity is so
great that men choke with tears in their
eyes in speaking of it. Some scores of sick
people were hurriedly removed during the
i mtlagration, and many people are pros
trated by the terrible excitement.
Galve.-ton, November 13th. — Nearly
every one has an estimate as to what the
total loss of the great lire foots up. The
best-posted citizens estimate the loss at
$2,000,000, while many who claim to have
figured on the matter put the estimate as
high as $2,500,000. Insurance men have
been hard at work all day and to-night
completing the list of their policies. So
much confusion and uncertainty has pre
vailed that the task of locating the policies
was a difficult one.
THE BUSHED DISTRICT.
Galveston, November 13th. — The total
area oi the burnt district is 100 acres, and
forty and a hail' Mocks were swept clean of
everything possible. Something over 400
bouses were burned, and it is estimated
by the relief committee that about 1,000
families were rendered homeless, a- great
majority of when, especially the poor
ones, lost everything. As the fire started
in the •,...:. r district, they bad little or ;;o
time in which to move their furniture.
While :!:e weail r victims moved their
valuable picture nnd effects. Several of
the finest houses, however, were hurtled,
without a single article being saved, so confi
dent Were tiie . vceiipants tiiat the lire wonld
pass by them. As the lire swept past the
County Jail, r fleeting its fearful glare and
intense beat through the grated windows,
the forty imprisoned inmates became
nearly frantic with tear. They set up a
yeli which was heard for squares above the
awful roar of the terrible tire. On top of
the jail air! Court-house were a corps of
strongmen, determined to save the build
ings, and with the aid of the brick walls
■ I'd. Tiie jail was on lire a dozen
times, but was saved. All the street can
were hastily mi: out of the Galveston
City Railway stables, and they
were abandoned to their fate.
Hut. as if in mockery at their fright, the
fire monster spared the habitation of the
humble mule, seeking richer fields. When
the fire started a gale was blowing at the
rate of thirty miles an hour. At 2 o'clock
tie Signal Service observer estimated the
■y in the vicinity of the fire at sixty
miles an hour, and this velocity was main
tained until near 6 o'clock, when the lire
gavesignaof exhaustion, and the cyclonic
vacuum snemed broken. The fire swirled
through its path as though it were a gi
gantic funnel, and for two squares on either
side the heat was su (locating and the clouds
of cinders blinding. The tiro department
hail become utterly helpless, and the water
WOrka gave poor satisfaction.
An liiyn.rtaut Diplomatic Move.
BOSIOS, November 13th.— A special tv
theAcbemter from Washington '-ays: An
important diplomatic move, to secure the
neutrality of the islands of the Pacific, so
far as they are not now possessed by the
Continental powers, is on foot, which* con
templates a disregard of Spain's claims of
sovereignty over any islands upon which
she has not established and maintained her
colonies. Regarding this an opportune
time, in view of the apprehensions
caused last summer by the Carolines
atTair, the Hawaiian authorities have
lately directed the Hawaiian Minister to
propose* plan to the United States, En
elan 1. France, Holland, Germany and
Spain for the .settlement of- the qw
It is that the Sandwich Islands, which pos
sess great influence in the other islands,
be allowed to send a commission to reunite
them into local representative govern
ments, whose integrity shall be guaranteed
by the powers. The contracting powers
would then send Consuls to the j.-Utinis
to protect their respective interests.
In this way the islands will
be kept forever open to commerce, and
neutral in any wars that may hereafter
arise. The scheme, as outlined, has been
the subject of severalconsultati.. us between
Minister Carter and Secretary Bayard. The
latter heartily indorses it, and armed with
this indorsement, Minister farter will sail
lor Europe to-morrow, on a mission to the
nations mentioned. He has laid the mat
ter before the Ministers at Washington of
the countries named, and in .-very case
their answers have been favorable.
Lively Work Itefore the l'ogtmaster-
WASHINGTON, November l.ith — Post
master-General Vilas has not been thor
oughly successful in the line of reform,
tie saw in to disobey the plain injunctions
oi a law Of Congress in the matter of mak
ing contracts to ca-ry the foreign mails,
and to set up his own views and ideas
against the specific provisions of a Con
gressioual enactment. It is claimed that
one of the first resolutions that will be
introduced in the House of Representa
tives will be a resolution censuring the
I ostmaster-General for his action in
tins respect, and this will lead to
a»iull discussion of the meaning
and intent of the Act of the last Congress
appropriating $400,000 for the carrying of
foreign mails by American steamship lines,
and of the reasons which induced General
Vilas to disobey the provisions of that bill.
The matter will alto he brought to the
attention of the Senate by a similar reso'u
tion. which it is believed will be offered by
Senator Frye. The whole administration
of the PostolHce Department by General
Vilas will he the object of a thorough in
vestigation. The manifest intent of the bill
referrea to was to aid in building an
American lino of steamships, but Vilas has
contracted with foreign companies for the
carrying of the mails, ami has ignored the
willingness of Congress to afford such
assistance as was possible toward keeping
alive American shipping. Mr. Vilas is
likely to have a lively time w ith Congress
before the session is over, and it is by no
means certain that he will not be formally

Preparations for the hanging ol the leader
of the half-breeds in their two rebellions
are complete, but in the absence of the
i iffii ial orders from the Government to carry
out the sentence of death on Kiel, ft
seems probable to-night that he will be

that the execution take place next Monday
has not y, i arrived, and the statement is
made to-night that unless the specified or
der arrives by to-morrow morning, the
Judge Will is ue an order fora further i
resp te. It has been customary heretofoie,
in ordinary cases, for the Sheritl to carry
out the mandate of the jury on the simple
authority of a telegram from Ottawa, nut

fierce controversy throughout the Domin
ion, that tin.' Sheriff declares that he will
! not assume the responsibility of acting
upon what might prove a forged telegram.
Meantime Riel is kept under the closest
surveillance. lie is closely confined in
jail, within the barracks of the mounted
police, two miles from this village, and a
mounted guard of sixty men i.- constantly
maintained, son:, -of the sentries occupying
a post of observation one-half mile distant
from the camp. No Strangers arc admitted
even to the corridors of the jail, and the
I only view obtained of the condemned
rebel is. when he is pacing the jail
yard for an hour each morning,
accompanied by his medical ad

work of guarding their prisoner, as the
