Theei is a breath of if ar in the air
of Europe. The relations between
Fracce and England ara becoming
strained. The former itslsis upon
her "rights" as she terms it in Egypt,
and will not, wichout a s niggle, per
mit the la'ter to possess hei self of that
country. In Bulgaria the Cxar lv s re
ceived a rebuff at the hands of
the representatives of the pefiple,
backed by Austria and Germany
that may lead to immediitsly
seiioos cotsequecces, parhapa to
the cccupation of its tenityry by
the Enperor Alexander's troops to
be fo'.lowtd by war. Ttmi trouble
is brewing in two directioa, in the

is supposed ti wield a permisable
power f s supreme SDTeregin, but In

where the efficacy of the river s pstein ean be

ofihe Congressional appropriation for the
improvement of the Mississippi levees could
not be better applied than in helping those
who are so willinir to help themselves.

Tbis is sound, good senee and should

all over Eorope as to tbe re-establishment

These rnmo s have excited special at

a section of the Frecch Republicans

the recent attempt to force the gov

excellent health and spirits, gave these
rumors an urjqaa'ifkd denia'. They

Senator Voorhkes, of Indiana, who
occupier, and deservedly, a distin
guished p!ase among the leaders of
the Demccrat'c patty, made a epeech
on Tuesday laet to his constituents at
Indianapolis that wai a cereful and
comprehecsive statement of the an
tagonistic . positions of the two great
partie;. On the question of the tariff
be was especially eleer and forcible.
He se id he took for his guide in the
conidf ration cf that question the
platform adopt'd by the Democratic
convention in Chiurgo, and read from
it ths following, as be termed it,
"wise, safe and patriotic propositions" :
But in making reduction ir. taxes it is
Dot proposed to injure any doinestio indus
tries, but rather to promote their healthy
growth. From the foundation of the govern
ment, taxes collected at the customhouse
bavo been the ohiof source of Federal reve
nue. Such they must continue to be. More
over, many Indutri a have cone to rely on
legislation for a sue essful continuance, so
that any change ol law must be at every step
regardtul of the labor and capital thus in
volved. The process of reform must be sub
ject in execution to this plain dictate oi jus
tice. This is the law of the Democratic
party cn the much agitated subject of
tariff, and it muet continue to be the
law until it is repealed or modified by
the next National Democratic Conven
tion. It is a just medium between the
extremes of the ideal free trader and
the greedy and grabbing tariff man,
and. ought to satisfy every man of
common Bense in the country. It fs,
as the brainy Senator from Indiana
says, "wise, safe and patriotic."
To the Editors of the Appeal :
In yonr comments on "Democrat's"
letter in this morning's A I'MAL.do you mean
to have it understood tbat tbe failure of the
county convention to indorse the State plat
form on the li'iuor question absolves Shelby
Democrats from standing by it and their
representatives from being ugided by it in
the Legislature? anothkb dkmocsat.
. No. The na'ional and State plat
forms of tha Democia'ic party tre tbe
written constitution and law of the
psriyatdthe plain guide of every
member of that prrly, whether in or
out of Corigre s or lha Legislature.
From these platforms there can be no
appeaj until the next national and
State Democratic conventions assem
ble. Whatever is therein contained
is paramount over all individual opin
ions and over all resolutions of coun
ty, city or district conventions. Thes
platforms am the solemnly- sgreed
compacts of the party, binding every
member of it alike; and they cannot
be ruodilied nor interpreted to suit in
dividual irttrst, or sway or swerve
the party from the line s of duty there
in carefully marked out. The national
and S a'e Democratic platforms define
the limitations ci principles cf the
party, and are conclusive for every one
of its members upon all questions of
pablic policy therein provided for.

Pjisth, Hungary, September 30
Tbe Uuterbaua presented a lively at
pearanca during tbe Prime Minister's
t-peeob. The cay had been loiked
forward tots an eventful one, tbePrt.
mier htviog several days ago an
nounced his intention of publicly de
claring the attitude decided upon by
the Empire toward the threatened eg
grestioLS of Russia in the Balkans.
Every tea', in tbe chamber was occu
pied and the galleties were crowded.
Hrr Tlszacommenctd by refuting the
f sumption that Austro-llungary had
either planner), or had been aware of,
or had in the Bl'ghest degree had ap
proved of tbeplai to depose Prince
Alexander. Neither was Austro-Hun-g.ry
nware, continued the Premier,
tbat Prince Alexinde", as was made
evident by this telegram ti tha Cur,
Kgardirg bis crown as having been
received d rett from the Czar, or that
Prince Alexander tuade his s'ay in Bol
garia dependen' oa the Cz ir's consent.
No agreement wba'evr exists between
AuS'.ro-IIuogary and Russia regardi g
the exrtion of their respective influ
ence either in the wes ern or in the
eastern portion of the Balkan rtites.
Aus'io-Hurgary firmly adhere? to the
Berln treity, which, while it is up
held, fiiffkiently corresponds with
Aiutrv-IIurga-y a interests. Austro
Hungary has taken no steps on beba'f
of the kidnappers cf Prince Alex
ander, ishe h .a merely warned Bul
garia in her on interest against the
adoption cf anv hasty resolution and
tbe rsnlta th-tt would he sara to en
sue therefrom. In 1868 I stated in
reference to tha Extern question that
it was my private opinion that in tbe
event of changes atvurriug in tbeEtet
our interests w.u'd require that tbe
nations inhabiting that portion of
Europe ehould form themselves into
independent States, according to
their separate individual titles. Tbis
rp nion is now shared by the Austro
hucgary Foreign Miuiairy. We hold
tbattnisvWw beet answers the inter
ests of ttie monaxhy, which, rrpudiat
ir g all di sire of aggrandiz-Taunt or
ooi qaest, would concentrate itseff rts
to promo e the independent develop
ment of thoie SUtes and prevent the
establishment over any of thm of any
protectorate not provided for in the
traty, or the btsrtion over those
couutries ot the lerinanent influence
of any one f ireiga power. Cheers.
"As rj(ads Austro-Hungary's al
liance w th Germaoy, contiuued the
Premier, "there has bei no change
inAuBtro-Ilungary's fore'gn relations.
We S'and with Germany on th old
baeis. We have no doubt we shall be
able to p'e'etv the mutual conditions
neceisaryto the existence cf each
S a e without en langering the general
peace. We regurd the treaty if Bir
'in as still in lorce, althoogh it has
been violated in certain case;, the
mot eetioui of which occurred last
year in Eiftern Rmmelia. We be
lieve tbe treaty of Berlin ought to con
tinue to be maintained. Nor has any
power 'n'orined U9 of its having as
sumed a contrary position. Austro-
Huogary sdherts to her repeatedly
declared opinion that should Turkey
rliim the right accirded in the Bil
ks' s pentneular - no other power
woud be entitled to resort
to armed intervention or to
the establishment of protectorata
thtrs; a ho, that no change in tbe
cons it'it onal or territorisl relations
of tbe Bilkan countries can bs effect
ed without the consent of the powers
signa'ory to the treaty of Berlin.
These are the outlines of our aims,
which we hope will be successful and
be attained in harmony with the
other rowers and withou'. disturbing
the peace of Europe. We shall cot
et danger the success of our endeav
ors by any prematura decarations in
grand, eloquent pbras s. To attaiu
this eni we sba'l labor with ca'mness,
whxh is dou ly necoeeary iu thtss
cr tical times. We shall labor with
mrdera'ion, but at tbe same time
with earne t' ecs a' d rsoln't n."
When Herr Tisza finished he was
greeted with cbeers from all parts of
All the Dtjnutf ?s wrre displeased by
tbe P emier's s atement. Deputy
Howath maiota'ned that Hungary
did not wautruch peace as that wtiicb
the German alliiccs ee. ured. Others
asserted that Rasiia had vio a'ed the
treaty cf Berlin. A prop'sal to re
open the discussion was r jte'ed. Iu
reply ti te requests ot Deputies
Howath and Apponyi tbat immediate
debate be granted, the Premier de
clared thai a more precise reply was
impits ble. His explanation, he said,
war far fuller than that of the
British Government; for instance,
should the Aurtro-IIungarian po'icy
be modified, he would know his duty.
He was nnable to name the date on
which paper-i on questions at issue
would be submitted the to House. No
binding engagement had been entered
into in re gird to Russia's candidate
for the Bulgarian thron. . He asked
tbe Houee not to mtke pending ques
tions subject fnr debate, aiding that
such a course would be paramount to
a vote of want of confidence in the
Tbe opposition complain that
Premier Tisza failed to state decis vi
ly whtther Austria would oppose Rus
sian occupation of Bolgurla, while the
government party agree tbat such a
etatmont would unnecessarily pro
voke Russia, who has not yet mads
any official expression of intention to
