OUR FOREIGN BUDCET.
Contrary to expectation, the war
cloud over Europe still holds up.
General Grant has improved since
last former advices, and has a hope
ful chance of living through the
summer. France has taken umbrage
at Egypt for the suppression of a
French paper at Cairo, and unless
she gets the satisfaction demanded a
new clement may appear in tho
Egyptian chaos. Cholera threatens
to fearfully scourge Spain, it having
obtained a strong foothold. The
trouble in the Canadian Notthwest
looks more serious. For details of
the matters mentioned, and other
important news, our readers are re
ferred to the rather large budget
compiled in the short time since the

On the morning of April 1-lth,
shortly after Dr. Douglas issued his
first bulletin, General Grant called
for writing material, and wrote the.
following bulletin: "The doctor
tells me 1 am better this morning. I
am better than I have been in two
weeks. U. S. Chant."
The General read tiie morning
papers, and on the above day walked
more than lie had for several days,
lie required less morphia than usual.
It was said by a gentleman intimate
with the General's position, Unit he
might live two or three weeks, or
even months. If ho survived till the
early part of summer he would like
ly be taken out of the city to the
mountains, or possibly to California.

The Official Gazette of Peking on
April 14th was to have published an
imperial decree, ordering the exe

peace between France and China.
Despatches received in London
from Shanghai, on that date, how
ever, state that there is a hitch in
the final arrangements for the exe
cution of tho definite treaty of peace
between France and China, owing
to some concessions which China
asks and which Patenotre, French
Embassador, refuses to grant.
General Delisle, in an order of the
day to the French troops, attributes
the recent reverses to the transfer of
the command, in consequence of
General Ncgrier's wound, to hands
unprepared to undertake the charge,
and expresses surprise that the

r.GYPT GIVES AFFKONT TO FKAXCi:.
The French newspaper, JJosphore
J'Jyyptioi, at Cairo, was forcibly
suppressed by the Egyptian Govern
ment on April 9th. French resi
dents of Cairo were manifesting
such indignation over the case on
the 14th, as to necessitate doubling
the guards in the city and confin
ing the troops to the barracks.
France demanded an explanation of
the affair, but the reply given by
Egypt is considered in Paris to be
unsatisfactory. Lc Paris news
paper asserts that the French Gov
ernment has sent another note to
Egypt demanding reparation for the
act of suppression, and the punish
ment of every one of the Egyptian
officials connected with it.
DISTRESS IN ITALY.
There is great distress in Italy,
owing to the cholera and failure of

finding themselves confronted with
some 1500 lebellious half-breeds,
who might be soon overcome, the
Government is face to face with a
general Indian uprising, which will
tax to tho utmost the euergics of the

official dispatch points unmistakably
to this end.
It was repotted on the following

some weeks ago at San Felipe do

ENGLAND AND RUSSIA.
The Official Messenger of St.
Petersburg has published a telegram
from General Komaroff, dated April
1st. He states that when his detach
ment approached Dashkapri on
March 25th, they say an intrench
ment occupied by Afghans. To
avoid a conflict lie placed his troops
over three miles from the Afghan
troops. Negotiations with Captain
Yate (of Sir Peter Lumsden's force)
began on the 26th. When the
Afghans became convinced the Rus
sians were not going to attack them
they daily drew nearer the Afghan
camp. On the 27th the Afghans
sent a reconnoitring expedition out,
and on the next day occupied a
commanding position on the left
fiauk of the Russians. "On tho
29th," says the General, I sent the
Afghan commander an energetic
summons to evacuate the left bank
of the Kushk river and the right
bank of the Murghab as far as tho
mouth of the Kushk. He replied
that, acting on the advice of the
English, he would not letire beyond
the Kushk. I then sent him a private
letter couched in amicable terms.
On the 30th, in order to support my
demand, I marched with my detach
ment against the Afghan position,
still expecting a pacific issue, but
fire from the Afghan artillery and an
attack of their cavalry compelled me
to accept a combat."
A rumor is current that the con
flict was brought about by Afghans
interfering with Russian officers who
had come as on escort with English
officers who had been dining with
Russian officers. One of the latter
was taking advantage of the occa
sion in tho Afghan camp, to take
notes of the Afghan position, when
tho Afghans tried to take away the
book, a struggle ensued and a shot
was fired, from which side is not
known. The Russians hurried back
to their camp, the troops were called
to arms and advanced against the
Afghans next morning.
Letters from St. Petersburg,
mailed at Berlin in order to escape
the Russian censorship, charge the
Russian Minister of War with having
sent an order to Gen. Komaroff at
about the end of February to bring
on a conflict with tho Afghans and
state that Gen. Komaroff started
from Mcrv with re-enforcements
for Pul-i-Kliisti and took advantago
of a favorable opportunity to make
an attack soon after his in rival at
tho latter place.
RUSSIA SUtTORTS HKR GENERAL.
The Czar and official press of
Russia sustain the conduct of Gen.
Komaroff. Ho and the officers un
der him have been complimented
and decorated for their action.
TH1J EXPLANATION IN F.NGLAND.
The lone of the English press
seems to indicate that the question
of the moment hinges upon tho
truth of Komaroff's statement that
the Afghans began tho fight. There
is pretty credible evidence that the
statement is without satisfactory
basis. It is supposed the Russian
Minister of War shaped the Gen
eral's telegram. Instructions have
been telegraphed Sir Peter Lums
den to transmit to London as quick
ly as possible his report and that of
Capt. Yates of the conflict on the
Kushk river. At tho various mili
tary and naval stations preparations
of war are continued and vigoiously
made. Replies were expected on

ran from Askabad, 13th, that Rus
sian troops to the number of 45.000
wero on the march to Sarakhs.
In the House of Commons, April
15th, Gladstone stated that word
had been received from Sir Peter
Lumsden, which showed that thero
was no confirmation of the report
that the Russians had advanced to
the Murghab river after the battle of
Pcnjdeh. Continuing, Gladstone
said that the result of the Govern
ment's communications with Russia
concerning the reported advance
amounted to the renewing of Rus
sia's assurance that no such advance
will occur if the issue of contrary
instructions can prevent it.
Afghanistan has given permission
for English troops to pass to tho
front, and Persia has granted a cor
responding privilege in her territory
War preparations are going on in
both countries with increased energy.
A Daily JVetos editorial of April
15th says: The situation shows a
more peaceful tendency, but though
the intentions of Russia are good
now, we cannot assume that they
will be carried out. Events have
simplified England's task. If war
is to be avoided it must be shown
that the Afghans and not the Rus
sians are blamable for the recent
collision, and also that Komaroff's
action is no part of the Russian
policy. Then there must be no fur
ther Russian advance. If Russia is
as anxious for peace as England is,
peace ought to be secured.
