Yokohama, Japan July 1 '. Considerate
excitement c- exists in consequence 6
the British minister's interference with the
Japanese quarantine regulations. Cholera
prevails in southern parts, and strict
quarantine. has been ordered for Yoked
nama. . The united States minister issued
immediate instructions for the compliance
of Americans. The British minister de
nied the right of the Japanese on account
of the extra territorial jurisdiction, and de
clared that any English ship should break
the quarantine and be protected in doing
so by a British man-of-war. Owing to in
dignant remonstrances from influential
quarters, especially from Gov. Henneerea
of Hong Kong, now visiting Japan, the
British minister modified hia attitude and
consents to co-operate with the Japanese,
Dut still asserts his right to break quar
ranUne at' that place.'-' The German min
ister supports him. All other diplomatic
representatives are absent except the Rus
sian, who sided with the American.
Gen. Grant's reception at Tokio was un-
brecedented in Japanese history. .In ad
dition to government demonstrations the
citizens have given lavish entertainments
on a sumptuous scale. Every day . and
night fresh novelties are open for his di
version. At an audience before the Em
peror on July fourth, hia majesty happily
alluded to the coincidence of date. The
sole obstacle to harmony is caused by the
demeanor of the English officials, who
persistently keep aloof from Grant, and
decline to give salutes or recognition. It
is not clearly understood whether this is
in consequence of orders from home or
otherwise. There is much comment on
their action, and it is distinctly known
that Grant is keenly sensitive to the
slight. Grant visits the shrines of Mikko,
and afterwards sails to Yezo. He starts
for America on the last week of August.

There Is now on exhibition at the New
York Aquarium a collection of trained ani
mals, me performances or which- indicate
a degree of intelligence which ia very re
markable. ' There are ten Broncho horses.
number of -docs, and a pair of Rockv
Mountain goats, all of which possess ar
coiAplishmentt sufficient to fill up a long
and luterestlng programme. It is stated
that the horses were wild upon the-plains
three years ago, and consequently that
during this brief period their adacatdaa
has been effected. In beginning the .per
formances the whole ten are first introduc
ed, laud at the word of command they per
ioral various military evolutions, sucn as
marching In line abreast, ia columns of
fours by the flanks, etc., both at common
and quick time.. A handkerchief given to
ono is passed to the next and so on from
moutn. to moutn ot tne ten ; any one horse
Cdlted by name steps forward, and Anally
the act is closed by one of the number,
who goes to each oi his comrades in turn,
and, crowding him out of the line, I'mshes
him with his nose as signal for exit, a
Jfiaoh horse is then muodoced in turn
ta exhibit his special accomplishments.
One walks up to the middle of a bala. ed
board, and there by moving his fore feet
oscillates the plank, sxxmiHodating every
muscle .ot nis oouy to uie movement.,
Finally he retires to one end of the board,
bearing that extremity down and leaving
the other high in Uie air. A second horse
now called in puts his nose over the ele
vated end of the plank, forces It down un
til he can plant bis tore hoots on it, .and
then mouats thereon.' The carious sight
is then presented of two horses at the res
pective ends of the "teeter" gravely swing
ing each other up and down. The difficul
ty of teaching all this to an animal so
careful as to stepping on insecure supports
as Uie horse is can well be imagined. Per
haps the "most remarkable, teats accom
plished on the board, which is quite nar
row, are Uie turning around. -of a horse
(who' stands directly over Uie "fulcrum.
and is eompeuea wane turning to osiance
himself with great care), and the rolling
of a barrel over ' the- whole length of the
plank. Trainers find that it is an exceed-
inglv troublesome undertaking to get a
horse to do anything with his front hoofs
wh lch involves raising them to any hei ght,
but here the animal plants both boors on
a barrel and rolls it up one side of the bal
anced board.' Then as the latter swings
over the horse catches the barrel with the
rear side of his hoofs, and walks down Uie
steep incline holding the barrel back.
There are several tricks commonly per
formed by trained horses in circuses which
these animals execute with remarkable
readiness and accuracy. -One of them se
lects a flag ot a given color out ot three ot
different hues: another unties a handker
chief knotted around hie hind ' leg, ' or
around that of another horse; a third
inmna over a gate, then turns and nulls
string which fires a pistol attached to its
surcingle; a fourth waltzes in excellent
time to music: and a fifth, a magnificent
cream colored, animal, accomplishes an
astonishing leap over a six- root gate and
four horses placed side by side against it.
The exhibition ot the horses isfollowed
by that ot a troupe of dogs, one of which
exhibits considerable skill as a rider on a
pad saddle. It leaps over banners and
through paper hoops, and finally springs
upon a piattorm unoer wnicn uie norse
passes. Then as Uie horse returns at
gallop around the- nng the dog springs
from the platform back upon Uie saddle.
The eagerness of Uie dog in watching for
Uie return ot tue norse, and its prompt re
trial in case of failure, seems to show that
it takes actual pleasure in its" perform
The troupe of trained dogs appear to be
long to no particular breed a - tact some
what extraordinary; as trainers usually
prefer to teach Uie intelligent French poo

each dog answering to its name bv a sharn
liark. One animal then dances, two dan
ce on their hiud legs and seat themselves
human lasnion in small cnairs, and outers
uuip the rope'. The most curious trick is
one In which all participate. At the word
of the trainer one of the aniia aiuwkes
its collar with its fore paws.ve maai. col.
lar falls upon the ground a litthTdog runs
forward, seizes it, and scampers away.
Another animal pursues him, regains the
collar, and puts it on. The traider then
asks, "What ought to bo done to a dog
that steals ?" No sooner are these words
uttered than two dogs jump upon chairs,
to which uprights haying large hooks at
their ' upper extremities are secured.
third dog picks up a cross bar in his
mouth, carries it to Uie two on the chairs.
and these lift it up and insert it on the
hooka. The - trainer meanwhile si Ids
noose over Uie small thiet's head, and an
other dog grasps the end of Uie rope and
drags the culprit- to the gillows. The
problem then is how to get the rope over
Uie cross bar, but this is quickly setUed b
the executioner jumping over the bar wit
the rope in his mouth. The hangman
then pulls the cord, and lifts the sluggling
victim into Uie air, keeps him up for a few
moments, and - lowers him apparently
dead. A wagon is now brought in and
Uie hanged dog placed in iront, . immedi
ately one large dog - places . himself be-
tween the shafts, two more seat themselves
'upright on Iks seats, and another two
push the vehicle from behind, and with
the exit of the latter this little melodrama,
which is played through without ft word
from the trainer or an v other help than the
affixing of the noose, terminates.
The - accomplishments of - the rocky
mountain goats large white animals with
enormous horns--are Uie more curious.
