[Senator Mitchell Speaks o
UK ARRAIGNS THR EAST.
A Grand Parnell and Gladstone
Meeting at the National
f itptcial to th* Ueruld by the Associated Pre**. \
Washinuton. D. C, April 2» —
A resolution wm offered by Mr. Ed
munds ia the senate to-day aud agreed
to, requesting the President, if not iu
ompstible with public interests, to send
to the Senate any information or corres
pondence in possession ef the government
touching the arrival and landing et Sen
Francisoo of the new Chinese embassy-
Mr Mitchell spoke on r a memorial submit -
ted by the Conference of the New York
Methodist Episcopal Church, praying
for protection for the Chinese in the
United States. He reoited the state
menU of the memorial referred to, which
charged among other tthings that Chi
nese subjects had been put to death in
Oregon aud the property of Chinese sub
jects destroyed. Mitchell aaid that
tha statement of the memorial ao
tar as Oregon waa concerned, waa an
entire misapprehension. Eastern news
papers and Eastern nun, and even East
ern statesmen, bad misrepresented Ore
gon and the whole Pacific Coast on this
question. Tbe press of the country j
was, in the main, he said, honest and ]
entitled to the confidence of the couutry,
but there were exceptions, Mitchell at
tributed much of tbe misrepresentation j
to a newspaper in Oregon, whioh paper
he named and whioh he characterised as
a ''distinguished politician."
Referring to the alleged insult of the 1
uew Chinese Minister, he said, it ooald '
be found on investigation that no insult
had been offered. There was an Idea in
tbe East that the people of the Pacific
Coast were not wall disposed toward the i
Chinese government. This was another ,
misrepresentation. There bas been a (
proposition made in the press that the )
Chairman of the Foreign Rehv ,
tiona Committee ot tbe Senate (
should go to the railroad depot
to receive the new Chineae minis- (
ter. Had such a thing ever been done
before, and had auy one ever proposed
that our officials should meet a new
British minister on his arrival? Had
there been any hullaboloo about other
ministers? He criticised the Committee
on Foreign Relation* for not having yet
reported his immigration prohibitory
bill, and warned the Senators on both
aides of the chamber that he would press
that bill and they would nave to come
equarely up to tlie work and could not
•scape the queutiou.

A l.lodsioue and P* rml! Meeting
mi Washing tan.
Washinoton, April 27.—A mass
meeting assembled here to-night in pur
suance of the call issued by a number of
members of Congress and business men
of Washington to sympathize with the
efforts of Mr, Gladstone to secure a par
liament for Ireland. Ou the platform
were seated Senator Van Wyck and
Representatives Randall, Phelps, Mc-
Kiuley, Gibson, O'Hara, Glass, and oth
er members of the lower House of Con
gress. X* ad all, in taking the chair,
expressed his profoind sympathy with
the osuse of Home Rule in Ireland.
This meeting, he said, ought to strength
en the hands of Glsdstone, tbe greatest
•of modern orators and statesmen. In ev
ery posjtble.reepectful and positive way.
America desired that England should see
that justice to Ireland was safety to
Great Britian. Ireland was entitled to
the consideration ot tbe United States
because her gallant people had on every
occasion been the friends ot free Amer
ica." "Let us give," he said in conclu
sion, "Gladstone and Parnell all the
encouragement which we, as Americana,
can extend. To do less would be base
desertion." [Load applao.ee.]
Senator Vau Wyck spoke enthusiastical
ly of the triumph of Home Rale, which
was about to be obtained by Ireland
and rejoiced that Ireland was encour
aged and strengthened fay aid, not only
from American, bat from English peo
ple. American people had a right to
meet in assemblies like this and bid
struggling Irishmen Godspeed in their
efforts, and especially had the people of
Washington that right. There was no
Home Rule here. The same class of mea
who denied it to Ireland denied it to
Washington. The aristocracy of blood in
England put their feet on Ireland. The
aristocracy of money put their feet on
Washington and tbe aristocracy of
money was the meanest.
Randall then read a letter from Sam
uel J Tilden. After acknowledging the
receipt of the invitation to be preaent at
the meeting the letter continues: "I re
gret tbat Icannot be personally present
on an occasion so full of interest, I none
the less join with you in applauding the
relations of the illustrious statesman of
England and the great leader of the
Irish peopls in behalf of tbe cause of
Home kale. Their efforts to obtain for
Ireland tbat full measure of self-govern
ment and liberty which tbe people of
the several States of the American Union
enjoy, have my cordial approval and
support. At length I trust the day of
delivery now dawns upon tbe misgov
erned and oppressed people of Ireland."
Letters were also read from Senator
Sherman assuring tbe meeting of his
hearty sympathy Tn the movement for
Home Rule in Ireland; from Senator Lo
gan stating that he had ever been and
now was for loosing the grasp of ths
iron hand of England from the throat of
the Irish people. Representative An
derson of Weat Virginia then addressed
tbe assemblage, heartily sustaining the
efforts of Gladstone to secure Horns
Rule for Ireland. Senator Riddleber
ger of Virginia spoke at length of the
Gladstone Home Rule bill, which he
criticised v falling far short of Ireland's
just lues, but advised Ireland
and Iris Union to take a breastwork for
seinetbiug beyond whioh they could
fight fcr further concessions. Rerre
sentativt- Phelps, of New Jersey, eulo-
I;ized the loyalty and patriotism of Ire
and, and was glad to be able to forget
the past aud think of the present and the
future. Representative McKiuley, of
.Ohio, thought that whatever Parnell ap
proved of Irish Americans ought to be
satisfied with. "Let v* get for Ireland
to-day all we can, and to morrow let's
get for her all she deserves. '* He was
glad to find the United States on tbe
right side of this question. The United
States bail always Veen on the right side
of everything and the Irish had al
ways been on tbe side of the United
States. It has been the pecuniary sup
port giveu Parnell that has enabled him
to tight Ireland's battles. He has fought
them peacefully with American mon«y.
Re preventative O'Hara, of IS. C, spoks
of tbe glory of ancient Ireland and the
tyranny of Great Britain.
The following resolutions were unani
Resolved, That in their peaceful efforts
to secure local government the people of
Ireland are entitled to the deepest sym<
Sktby of the American people, and that

0 Parnell are hereby extended our earn

from Patrick Ford, Govs. Perry, of Flor
ida, O'Neill, of Alabama, Abbott, of
ifow Jersey, Oglesby, of Illinois, and
Senator Blair, expressing regret at their
inability to be present, and sxpressing

■ made by Representatives McMillan, of
Tennessee, McAdoo, of New Jersey,
Buttorworth, of Ohio, Lawler, of Illi
nois, and Mr. Harmou, of Chicago, ex
pressing sympathy with tbe movement.
Athens, April 28. —M. Dalyannis,
replying to tbe deputation which pre
sented the resolutions adopted by the
citixens' meeting, said that the govern
ment had net promised France that
Greece would disarm. It had accepted
the mediation of France on condition

The Ex-President of the Confeder

tSpecial to Ihe Herald by the Anoctated Pre**. |
Montooherv, April 28.-The"city"ia
full of people, and there ia great excite
ment. It hat been raiu nig almost con
tinuously since Monday, and about dawn
this morning the down pour was a tor
rent. So great was the rain aud eouse
quant mud that tbe plau of having the ad
dresses of Jefferson Davis and General
Gordon delivered at the fair grounds
uear the city at eleven o'clock, had to be
abandoned. It was determined that tbe
procesaion should form at two o'clock
uud march to the State Capitol building.
Addresses were delivered from the steps
of the Capitol this afternoon. Mr.
Davis stood upon the same spot upon
wbiob betook the oath as President of
the Confederacy. The prooessiou is
aow forming. An immense concourse
of people arrived to-day in spite of a
tannic rain this morning. Mr. Davis has
beeu very quiet and secluded all day,
receiving only old acquaintances and
special friends. Hs haa no set speech,
and his address to tbe multitude will be
Tbe route of the procession to the
oapitol was about a mile long- The av
enne is very wide, but tbe crowd when
it began to move, packed It from one
side to the other. Meo, women and
children were packed from the steps to
tbe front gate of the capltol, and while
it was impossible for the great part of
them to hear, they stood lv their places
out of respect for Mr, Davis and a desire
to see him.
When order had been secured, and for
suoh a vast throng it was the moat or
derly ever seen here. Mayor Reeee ad
vanced to tbe stage and said: "My
countrymen, it is with profound amo
tions that I present to you the foremost
type of Southern manhood, Honorable
Jefferson Davis, ex-President of the
Confederate States of America."
Mr. Davis, leaning on his cane, with
the Federal flag over him and Confeder
ate veterans before him who had come
hundreds of miles to hear and see him,
in a dear, ringing voice, showing the
deep intensity of bis feeliugs, bat with
out tremor or pause, except when inter
rupted by the shouts of hia hearers,
ssld: "My friends, it would be vain if I
should attempt to express to you the
deep gratification which I feel at thia
demonstration, but I kuow that it is not
personal and therefore I feel more deep
ly gratified, because it is a sentiment far
dearer to me than myself. You have
passed through a terrible ordeal; a war
which Alabama did not seek. When
she felt her wrongs too grievous for
farther toleration she sought a peaceable
solution; that being denied her, the
thunders of war came ringing over the
land. Then her people rose iv their
majesty. Gray-haired sires and oeard
less boys early rushed to tbe front. It
waa a war which Christianity approved,
a holy war for defense. Well do I re
member seeing your gentle boys so small,
to nse a farmer's phrase, that tbey might
have been called 'seed corn ' moving on
with eager step and fearless brow to tbe
carnival of death; and I have also looked
upon them when their knapsacks aad
muskets seemed heavier than the boys,
and my eyes, partaking of their moth
ere' weakness, filled with tears. Those
days have passed. Many of those boys
have fonnd nameless graves, but they
ere not dead. They live in memory,
and their spirits stand out as tbe grand
reserve of tbat column which is march
ing on with unfaltering step towards the
goal of constitutional liberty." [Ap
"It were In Tain ii I should attempt, as
I have already said, to express my grat
itude to yon. lam standing now very
nearly on the spot where I stood when I
took the oath of office in the
year 1861. Your demonstration
now exceeds that which welcomed me
then. This shows that the spirit of
Southern liberty is not dead. [Long
and continued applause.] Then you
were fall of joyous hopes, you had every
prospect of achieving all you desired
and now you are wrapped in the mantle
of regret and yet thut regret only mani
fests more profuoundly and does not ob
literate the expression of your senti
ments. 1 felt last n<ght as I approached
the exchange hotel, from the gallery of
which your famous orator, William
L. Yancy, introduced me to the citizens
of Montgomery and commended me ia
language which only bis eloquence could
yield and which far exceeded my merit,
I felt, I say again, that I was
coming to my home—coming to a land
where liberty dies not and serious sen
timents live forever. [Applause.) I
have been promised, my friends, that I
should not be called upon to make a
speech, and therefore loan only extend
to you my heartfelt thanks. God bless
you, one and all, old men and boys, snd
the ladies, above all others, who never
faltered in our direst need." [Loudand
long continued applause ]
When he retired the shouts were so
bang and loud tbat Mr. Davis had to go
to tbe front again. He bowed his ac
knowledgments and thanks.
Governor O'Neal, when it was possi
ble to be heard, made a handsome
speech in reference to the cause of the
gathering and of the love tbe people of
the right faith feel for the statesmen
and soldiers of the Soutb, and intro
duced Gen. John B. Gordon, the orator
selected to deliver the address, as in Mr.
Davis' feeble condition it was under
stood he could only speak a fsw min
utes' Gen. Gordon received a grand
welcome, as many aoldlers that he had
commanded were present.
General Gordon'sepeacli waa received
with the greatest pleasure, and at many
points he was interrupted by the ap
proving shouts of the multitude. Mis
references to Mr. Davis and the gran
deur uf his life, especially tn the scenes
depleted in Fortress Monroe, made a
profound impression and brought tears
to hundreds of eyes. His tributes to the
soldiers of both armies and contempt for
tbe men who would attempt to detract
from the valor of either, received long
continued shouts of applause.
It was then announced that Mr. Davis
would receive his friends at the City
Hall soon after the meeting adjourned.
When Mr. Davis and those escorting
the party had passed through the lines
and reached their carriages the vast
throng dispersed. As he started from
the Capitol portico the artillery boomed
forth and fired a salute of one hundred
guns. The same scene of cheering and
waving of handkerchiefs waa enacted as
wheu the procession moved np the ave
nne. Mr. Davis was carried to the City.
Hall where a general handshaking was
indulged In, the vast number of callers
only permitting a moment to each. This
ended the day a demonstration, and
It waa a grand success, the heavy
raiu in the morning and after
the speaking, being the only draw
backs. Universal good humor pre
vailed. There was not a hitch in carry
ing out the details. Fully 20,000 people
were on the streets and grounds. No
political significance attaches to the
meeting. It was an opportunity for thou
sands of Confederate soldiers aad their
wives And children to see Mr. Davis, and
they oame accordingly. It haa added
largaly to the fund for the building of
The streets are crowded to-night and

tion yesterday before Commissioner Saw

bond of $500. John Conway and Irer

the distillery; that Conway ordered
the wagon to be stopped; that Weyse
told tbe gauger to mind his own busi
ness, at ths same time ordering the driv
er to move on, which order the driver
obeyed. Conway stopped tbe wagon,
took a demijohn out, and Weyse had a
i tussle with him. Ths gangers wore that
he made his business known to < he own
er of the distillery, asking Weyse if be
knew the penalty for resisting a Govern
ment officer. One demijohn of the load
Conway testified, was filled with brandy
and another contained some of the same
liquid.— [S. F. Alta.

The report that Mr. L J. Kose has
sold Sunny Slope to an Kuglisb syndi*
cafe ia premature. The facts sre thst
negotistious, whioh bave been pending
for some time, reached a poiut where
both parties agreed as to the prioe,
$750,000, Mr. Rose having tbe privi
lege of reserving all bis thoroughbred
horses, but the purchasers to get the
wineries. The purchasers wanted until
next .July to make good tbe purchase.
This Mr. Kose would not accede to.
There the matter rests. If the foreign

sale is made. If they fail the trade is

All diseases of the respiratory organs treat

To all those who are afflicted with any ot
tbe different forms of Catarrh we would say
there Is no disease which presents a greater
diversity of symptoms—ooue more loath
some, insidious and dangerous than Nasal
Catarrh, especially if complicated, as it al
most alwars fa, even from Its first appear
ance, with a* sffectton of the throat.
From tho earliest symptoms < whioh are
generally attributed to "cold In the head")
to the various ugly and distressing stages
through which the disease passes, the patient
fs hopeful of recovery, and rarely gives it
proper attention until certain alarming
symptoms present themselves, denoting un
mistakably the rapid advance of Che malady
to the lungs. Indeed, so various are the
symptoms that the presence of the disease Is
not alwsys known, or even suspected, till it
has reached tbe more advanced stages. The
disease mayor may not be attended by adis
charge from the nostrils or tbe throat, but
there is usually present a morbid secretion
and a treqaeat disposition, especially in the
morning, to clear the throat, and the effort
to do so is often, though not always, attended
by expectoration; there is a sensation of
heaviness in the frontalpartof the head,and
the brain sometimes suffers io an extent pro
ducing headache, vertigo and confusion; It
becomes difficult to think clearly and to
concentrate the mind; the memory becomes
impaired and the intellect enfeebled; des
pondency of spirits and an excitable condi
tion of the nervous system. Such is the ef
fect of tbe disease, and 11 to this train of
symptoms f which not infrequently leads to
insanity or idtoe/) we add many of the more
loathsome physical effects, as caries, or rot
tenness of the bones of the face aud head, a
most offensive smell to the breath, and cor
rupt, morbid and poisoned secretions, de
struction or serious injury to tbe senses of
smell, hearing, sight sud taste, we have a
catalogue of horrors which should lead any
person to make early and proper efforts to
eradicate tbe disease whii<- it is In a curable
