WASrTOTSr , June 14.-In executive session
today there was a lively row over Leonard's
einlfrmationn Kellogg by sharp tactics got
the aemninatioa up out of its turn, and most
of the Senators opposed to Leonard being
absent from their seats, he was confirmed.
The vote had hardly been announced, how
ever, when Davis, of Illinois, came in, and
finding what had been done began to rave at
what he called an Insult offered to the Judi
ela7ry ommittee.
Several speeches were made by various
Seastors, and to shut off a motion to recon
sider the confirmation Kellogg suggested as
a doinpromise that if the Senate would unan
1)ously consent to put Leonard's name at
the head of the calendar and act on it to
morrow he would waive the vote just taken.
This was done.
HMd Kellogg insisted on adhering to the
?.O-te as taken he would, undoubtedly have
beet beaten on the motion to reconsider, and
thatwould have prejudiced Leonard's chances
WItaOluly. As it is he will get through by a
small vote. Eustis seems to take no special
Interest in the matter, either pro or con.
The Democrats of the House held a caucus
thi afternoon to discuss the condition of
glslation in conference committee and in
at.hot the committee on the army bill as to
utre action.
The Senate conferees on the army bill ad
here to the original figure of 25,000, reject the
transfer of the Indian bureau, and strike out
Enott's amendment prohibiting the use of the
army for political purposes.
T06 House conferees insist on cutting the
army down to 20,000 men, retain the transfer
of t e Indian, bureau, and adhere to Knott's
amendment.
Ulpon these differences the conference com
M'itthe has dissolved, and every pressure is
-elig exerted in Democratic circles to secure
Sfirm stand on the part of the House. At
this Writing there is every prospect that after
all the whidling and nonsense of the Texas
OSIktiOn and others in the last few days,
SHouse will hold out, and either force the
&ite to recede or let the bill fall. The Texas
Ma, have evidently heard from their con
ltulats and the press of the Southwest.
.'he condition of legislation is as follows:
The legislative, executive and judicial, army,
ant lver and harborbills are in conference,
g ,semall prospects of agreement, while the
civil bill has only just reached the
8ouste.
Beldes these appropriation bills there are
'liMber of measures of Importance that the
members desire to get through, and for which
ialmy, In order to secure their passage, would
a) willing to vote to extend the session into
She middle of next week. These are the inter
1iii.revenue bill, which involves the reduction
of the tobacco tax; thesteamboat bill, of great
interest to the West; the poet route bill,
whibh includes the Brazilian subsidy; the
Eads relief bill; the special levee bill for the
ler Misissilppi, and one or two contested
e9letion cases. It is, therefore, a physical im
K0alibility to get through by Monday.
Mr. Windom, chairman of. the Sedate Ap
proprtitaon Committee, will to-morrow re
fpt a resolution rescinding the adjournment
resolution until the twentieth, or from day to
Aay until the business in hand is disposed of.
Neither Mrs. Jenks nor Pltkin testified to
dsy. Mrs. Jenks has been receiving a course
of instruction from Shellabarger, John Sher
.a.'s lawyer, ever since she came here, and
there is reason to suspect that she has also
,.adan interview with Sherman himself.
, But these precautions will avail nothing
The committee will examine her upon a line
of inquiry which neither she nor John Sher
man's lawyer has any present suspicion of,
.and, if she undertakes to whitewash Sher
man, she will be tripped at the first sentence
of prevarication.
As for Pitkin he has blood in his eye, and
WUill probably prove to be the best witness for
e prosecution yet summoned. He is said
to have the original of Anderson's protest
hwlngdistinctly that it was cooked up to.

N. w YORK, June 14.-Gen. Sherman made
a very remarkable after-dinner speech yester- 4
da lt the meetign of the West Point alumni. 1
l_.ding to the possibility of an attempt being
made to disturb the President's title, he de- i
lared that Mr. Hayes, although a mild man
nered gentleman, would be found to possess I
the nerve to maintain his ri~ght if it was as
sailed, and that in doing so he would have the (
support of the army. This sentiment drew
forth a burst of applause from the students,
as well as from the young graduates.

GRANT'S MVZIRMElNT AND OPINIONS.
He Considers the Poeter Investigation
Useless and Feeolih.
Naw Yonx June 14.-Among the passen
gers who arrived here from Liverpool yester
ay on the steamer Baltic, of the White Star
line, was Gen. Grant's second son Mr Jesse
R. Grant, who left this country with his par
ente, when the latter sailed from Philadelphia
last year.
The ex-President will not return till next
spring. He has arranged matters so that he
will evade either too warm or too cold
weather. He will go to Denmark and then to
Norway and Russia during the warm sum
mer months, and after visiting Holland, Bel
glum and other places, on his return, will
manage to spend the winter months nl the
south of Europe, very likely in Spain.
He will remain there long enough to avoid
the inclement winter weather of the north,
and will then return to Paris in the beginning
of the spring, and thence come to this coun
tr~y .
SIr. Grant says that his father takes a very
deep interest in all that transpires in the
United States. He is posted as to everything
going on. He does not read an English news
paper at all, the British papers not having
apparently much in their columns that In
terests him. He does go for the American
papers, however.
Mr. Grant was asked if his father had heard
of the investigation of the presidential elec
tion now progressing in Washington.
"Of course he did.
"Did he exress any opinion about this in
vestigation ?"
"Well, you know, I nh not permitted to
utter political opinions in his behalf, but I
can tell you that he regards the Potter inves
tigation as a useless and foolish piece of busi
ness. He thinks that President Hayes was
duly and legally elected, and that this con
gressional investigation business is all arrant
nonsense."

NEW YORK, June 14.-The World this morn
ing pubishes a two column letter from John
F. Mines, of Utica, N. Y., in which he repro
duces numerous extracts from the Utica
Daily Republican, which he claims is Senator
Conkling s organ, to prove that Conkling,
through its columns, began the movement for
the investigation of the presidential election
frauds a year ago, and has been a steady ad
vocate in favor of it. Mines suggests that
the Potter committee send for and examine
Conkling, as he would be a valuable witness,
professing to know much.
Cvil Service Reform-How it Swells the

NEW YORK, June 14.-Mr. Gorham, as sec

war for the campaign. That is civil service
reform, as it is at present understood in
Washington.

to All the Returns senauie.
WASHINGTON, June 14.--The Potter commit
tee had a full quorum this morning, Messrs.
Hunton Springer and Hiscock having re
turned from Florida.
Shortly after 11 o'clock the committee went
into executive session, which lasted for over
an hour, during which they heard a partial
report of the Florida sub-committee' after
which a recess was taken until 2 o'clock p. m.
APTERNOON SESSION.
The committee did not begin business un
til nearly 4 o'clock, and examined Orlando H.
Brewster, an elector on the Republican ticket
in 1876, with reference to the genuineness ot
his signatures to the different Louisiana
electoral returns.
He stated he was United States Surveyor
General at the time of the election and re
signed his office, to take effect on November 4.
He remained away from the meeting of the
college on the morning of December 6, be
lieving himself ineligible. He was chosen to
fill the vacancy occasioned by his staying
away and attended the meeting of the col
lege in the afternoon and cast his ballot. The
next morning he signed the electoral certiti
cate.
About two or three weeks later he was told
by H. C. Clarke, Gov. Kellogg's private secre
tary,that there was a clerical defect in the first
certificate, in that it should read "Lists" In
stead of "List." Clarke then presented him
new papers, and he signed them. He did not
examine the papers and does not know whether
they differed in any respect from those signed
first. There were no other electors present,
nor was Gov. Kellogg. He thinks that there
were some persons in the room, but does not
know who they were.
Witness could not remember what date it
was when he signed the second set of papers.
He accepted Clarke's statement in regard to
the matter. Witness was shown the different
papers bearing his signatures, and declared
all of his to be genuine. He said he could not
tell positively, because the signatures zmght
be so perfectly imitated as not to be distin
guished from the genuine.
The chairman laid before the committee a
letter from the Secretary of State saying that
the correspondence relating to the McVeigh
commission at ked for by the committee would
be transmitted to the House of Representa
tives. The committee then adjourned until
to-morrow at 10 o'clock.

EXCITEMENT AT ANN ARBOR
Over the Searchlng of the Medical Col
lege-The Faeulty Badly Scared.
ANN ARBOR Mich., June 14.--The examine
tion of the .Medical College here by Detec
tive Snellbaker, of Cincinnati, has thrown the
faculty and community generally into a con
siderable state of excitement. The public In
dignation everywhere brought to the surface
by the Harrison horror in Cincinnati, has
made the faculty especially nervous just at
the present time, and now to wake up in the
morning and find that a Cincinnati detective
and a Cincinnati reporter are here after a
round dozen of Cincinnati bodies, many of
them from prominent families, creates genu
ine consternation in the camp.
Even were it understood that the faculty
were not cognizant of the place whence these
bodies came, their iostion would be suffi
ciently awkward. To have it shown or even
intimated that the gang of "stiff raisers,"
as they are known among colleges are led by
a member of the faculty creates intense ex
citement. Detective Snellbaker and your
special correspondent left here to-day for Cin
cinnati, to return with young Devens' friends,
to complete the work of identification. They
also hope to be able to Identify some of the
other bodies, several of which they believe to
be from Cincinnati. They have left Sheriff
Case, who aided in the search last night, in
charge of the bodies.
When Dr. Herdman demonstrator of ana
tomy in the medical department of the uni
versity, learned this morning that a search
had been made by the officers last night, for
the purpose of discovering the body of young
Devens, supposed to be somewhere In the In
stitution, he raved terribly, and demanded of
Sheriff Case to know by what authority he
had invaded the sacred precincts of the col
lege building without his consent. He under
took to builldoze the sheriff, who has the writ
ten order to examine the premises. In cases
like the one investigated last evening, it
should be remembered that aside from the po
sition the doctor holds as demonstrator, he is
engaged in furnishing the students with sub
Jete for dissection, and the utmost secrecy is
enjoined as to where they come from. He
denies emphatically that any bodies have
been received from Cincinnati for weeks, and
consequently the one partially identitled
could not be that of Devens.
Notes From New York.
NEW YORK, June 14.-The National Tem
perance Society has just held a conifrence to
c:iscuss the subject of the introduction of Dr.
Richardson's lesson book on alcohol as a
text-book in the public schools.
At the horticultural exhibition next week
the whole country from Mexico to Maine will
be pretty well represented. The display of
plants and flowers promises to be the best
ever made here.
Business at Castle Garden has nearly re
vived-six hundred emigrants yesterday.
The Locnm'tlve Engineers Contented
They Well Not Join ihe Communists.
CLEVELAND, June 14.-P. M. Arthur grand
chief of the Brotherhood of Locomotive En
gineers,arrived at home yesterday from a tour
throughout the Northwest, where he met nu
merous lodges of the order in private session.
He found the engineers contented, and thinks
that there never existed in the United States
a better feeling between these employees and
the railway companies tian now. They will
have nothing to do with tW Communists.
Breaking of One of the Smaller Cables of
the New York and Brooklyn Bridge.
NEW YORK, June 12.-What is known as the
fall of the east cable of the New York and
Brooklyn bridge parted at noon to-day at the
New York end, releasing one of the smaller
cables of the great cable, killing two men and
injuring others. Henry Supple, o' the gang
riggers, was caught by the strand and pre
cipitated to the ground, a distance of more
than sixty feet. He died on the way to the
hospital. Standing near Supple was Theo
dore Blake one of his men. Blake was killed
outright. Three other riggers were badly
hurt about the legs by the recoil of the wires.
Rumo.n of a Railroad Strike.
INDIANAPOLTS, June 14.-There has pre
vailed about the railway depot and on the
street for some days a rumor that there was
to be a general railroad strike on the seven
teenth instant. It is generally discredited,
and doubtless sprang from the agitation on
the subject of strikes existing elsewhere.
Cronkedness Among AsilnCe,.
NEW YORK, June 14.-The Herald says:
Assignees in bankruptcy, like savings banks:
receivers, seem to think that they are in no
way responsible to creditors. Judge Choate's
orders, calling on those gentlemen for their
annual reports, which only onein ten of them
ever make, dispels this little delusion. Why
cannot State judges give us a little reform in
their establishments?
Paneral of Mr. IBryat.
NwtYO0BZ June 14-The funeral of Mr.
B t took placethis morainAt ev. >
and Twentieth street. There were no ser
vices at the house. The body was borne to the
hearse at 9:15 and taken immediately to the
church. An immense crowd assembled be
fore the doors of All Saints Church an hour
before the time of the beginning of the ser
vices. The coffin, which was covered with
black cloth and mounted with sliver, bore a
silver plate with the inscription:* "William
uullen Bryant, born Nov. 8, 1794; died June
12,1878."
Two large baskets of flowers were on the
communion table, and a beautiful floral pillar
with pedestal, to which was attached the in
scription, "From his employees, who loved
him."
The assemblage was remarkable for the
number of prominent citizens, and also for
the great number of aged or elderly men pres
ent. The remains were taken to Roslyn,
Long Island.
CENTRAL AND SOUTH AMERICA.
PANAMA.
Everything quiet-Adjournment of Con
gress-A Small Row.
(Correspondence National Associated Press.]
PANAMA, June 6.-There is but little news
to send from this republic. Everything is
quiet. The congress at Bogota will shortly
be adjourned.
A row occurred in the Canca district re
cently, at a small village known as El Valle,
near Chaco, on the Pacific coast, between
some gatherers of ivory nuts and the friends
of an Indian named Gonzales. Over a hun
dred men attacked the nut-gatherers with
guns. Several of the combatants were killed,
and others were wounded, when the nut
gatherers retreated to the woods, threatening
to return with reinforcements and renew the
light,
GUATEMALA.
Business at a Stand-still-Pine Crops
Expected.
PANAMA, June 6.-Business generally In
this republic and all over the west coast of
America is at a stand-still.
The Minister of Agriculture made an exten
sive trip through the departments of the
west, and he reports the condition of Pacien
das remarkably good. The coffee crop will,
it is expected,.be the largest ever produced In
Central America.
HONDUKAS.
Fruit Trade With New Orleans.
PANAMA, Jine 6.-The commerce of Hon
duras with New Orleans during 1877 has been
of great importance, considering that the
only products exported from this republic are
fruits, the shipments of which amounted in
value to over $400,800.
There is nothing of note from Salvador or
Nicaragua save that these republics are at
peace.
COSTA MICA.
Grasseoppers at Work on the Coffee Crop
PANAMA, June 6.-Grasshoppers have made
their appearance in great numbers In several
departments, and, it s feared, will injure the
coffee crop, which had promised well.
PERU.
Business Dull-- evere larthquake at
Jaqua--Itaflan Ship Burned.
PANAMA, June 6.--Commercial affairs in
Peru are less encouraging than at the date of
the last mail. Business s dull, and transao
tions'of all kinds limited. Exchane is some
what in demand, and the price less advanta
geous to buyers. The advance Is said to be
the result of a combination.
Accounts from Callao report a severe earth
quake at Jacua and Inauca on the night of
May 15. The shock was very severe, and
created great alarm at both places. A boat
arrived a Callao on the twenty-third of May,
belonging to the Italian ship Catterina Chaz
zaro, which was destroyed by fire on the four
teenth of May. The boat contained eight of
the crew. No particulars regarding the burn
ing of the vessel have been published.
BOLIVIA.
The New Mlnlstry--Crop Fallre-Centim.
unance of the Epidemic.
PANAMA, June 6.-The new ministry have
taken charge of the respective portfolios, and
apparently all is going to the satisfaction of
the public. The want of rain in the Depart
ment of the Interior continues to produce a
great scarcity of provisions and in some
parts fears are entertained of serious conse
quences. The crop in the entire department
are a failure and provisions are very high.
The epidemic still continues. It is called a
sort of intermittent fever; nevertheless those
who are attacked die on the third or fourth
day as of yellow fever.
BRAZIL.
DeathL from Famine.
PANAMA, June 6.-The latest advices re
ceived from Brazil state that in the province
of Cara, in that empire, the number of
deaths from famine exceed one hundred daily.
CANADA.
Pauffern's Uueeemsor-Notblng Settled.
TORONTO Ont., June 14-A special cable to
the Globe from London says: There is the
best authority for stating that when Lord
Beaconsfield left for Berlin nothing definite
had been settled about Dufferin's successor.
Only two names were considered at the
Colonial Office, those being the Dukes of
Manchester and Connaught. The Duke of
Manchester, we hear, will not be appointed,
and if certain difficulties can be overcome,
Prince Arthur is not indisposed to assume the
office; however, nothing definite has been
done,

morning.

Kellogg's Frilht.
[Washington Post.]
Mr. Kellogg is described by some of the
correspondents as being very much fright
ened at the prospect before him. We should
presume that the prospect would not be al
together agreeable to Mr. Kellogg; but really
he has so much and such distinguished com
pany in his misery, that a certain quality of
cheerfulness would not seem quite impossible
to him. Mr. Kellogg hasbeen so long accus
tomed to stand this sort of thing in solitude,
as it were, that the mere fact of having a
large and constantly increasing crowd to
share his more recent woes can hardly fall to
be somewhat in the nature of balm.

LoADow, June 14.-The London Globe to

between England and Russia, whicht tasserts
was signed at the Foreign Office in this city
on the thirtieth of May last, and which will
serve as a mutual engagement for the Rus
sian and English plenrp.otntiaries at the con
The conditions of this agreement provide
for a division of Bulgaria into two provinces, 1
one north and the other south of the Balkans.
Provision is made for the government of the
provinces, and for the departure permanently
therefrom of Turkish troops.
England stipulates not to oppose the retro

satlsfied.
LONDON, June 14.-The text of the agree
ment as published by the Globe to-day is be
lieved to be authentic, and it is now said that
similar secret engagements havebeen entered
into between Englafid and Germany respect
ing Asiatic Turkey.
The opinion is expressed in well informed
quarters that Turkey in Europe will cease to
exist as a power and will become a mere geo
graphical exposition. It is also deemed true
that Russia has abandoned her claims to the
cession of territory in Asia, and that in this,
as In other provisions of the bargain, she has
won a great victory.
The non-committal reply of the Chancellor
of the Exchequer, refusing to say whether the
Globe's publication is authentic, strengthens
the belief in its correctnees. It is said that
the Globe did not obtain its copy from any
English source, but purchased it from one of
the attaches of the Russian Legation.
The opinion gains ground that the congress
will not be so unprepared for Lord Beacons
field's great surprise as the people will be, as
probably an understanding among the dtplo
matists had been effected before the mee ting
of the congress.
Lord Beaconsfield's project is supposed to
be nothing less than the establishment of
British rule, in the guise of a protectorate,
over the who ofAs Tur with Constan
tinople and what is left of European Turkey
under the joint protectorate of all the powers.
A dispatch from Berln, however, states that
the Austrian delegates are much perturbed,
and areevidently anxious.
England Germany and Russia are satisfied
with what they have agreed upon, Turkey
knows she cannot help herself, Italy is indi
ferent, but Austria fears that she is coming
out with little or nothing more than when she
entered.
Berlin is full of rumors to-day, but there are
no actual new disclosures.
