BISMARCK TO MEDIATE BETWEEN RUSSIA
Loxnox, April 8. A dispatch to the
Stamhml from Berlin states that Lord
IJocberry has come to that city to invite
Bismarck to mediate between Russia and
England. The outcome of the isit is being
watched for with keen interest. Roseberry
and Glatktonc have of late been as Damon
and Pjthias and the young lord's recent ap
pointment to a placo in the Cabinet as Lord
Privy Seal and First ComniI-sIoiier of Pub

him generally disliked.

Dunus, April 8. A numerously attended
meeting of the members of tho National
League was held here yesterday. Addresses
were deliered by Messrs. Hcaley, O'Brien
and others. The speakers, without excep
tion, denounced the flunkeyism displayed by
the Irish Loyalists in their preparation for
the coming of the rrince and Princess of
Wales. One speaker suggested that the
corporation close the raids or streets in tho
city through which the royal cortege pro
posed to pass, and thus not only foil the
obsequious aims of those who had caused
decorations lo be placed throughout the
royal route, but at the same time teach the
heir apparent that the toadyism of a few
Irishmen could not be accepted as express
ing the will of the people of Ireland's me
tropolis. The Prince anil Princess of Vffiles
left London last evening for Holy Head,
whence they crossed to Kingston and
reached Dublin early this morning.
The city is profusely decorated with flags
and mottoes of welcome to tho Prince of
Wales. There are a nmnlier of instances in
which no display is made and where an at
titude of dignified neutrality will probably
be maintained during the stay of His Royal
Highness, but under the pressure of general
public opinion ea this evidence of ill
feeling is likely to disappear. The only
cloud on the horizon now "is that the stu
dents may ciuse some disturbance by hoist
ing the flag which they are supiiosed to have
purloined from tho Mansion House after
Major O'Connor's threat to haul i down on
the Prince's arrival. If the flag is displayed
there is sure to be a fracas between the stu
dents and the Nationalists. Twelve league

France would insist uioii the recognition by
China of her rights in Tonquin as defined in
the-treaty of Tien Tsin, signed on May 11,
1884. Eery effort would be made by the
Gn eminent to arriic at a peaceful solution
of the problem, but If China refused to
recognize France's right to a protectorate
oer Tonquin and Annam then it would be
unfortunately necessary to declare war. M.
Brisson asked the Chamber for a further
credit of 150,000,000 francs.
Late esterday afternoon the Chamber of
Deputies voted the 150,000,000 francs asked
for war purposes in Tonquin.

TRADE WITH THE WEST INDIAS.
The Correspondence lletwcen the United
States and Great Hrltaln Respecting
a Treaty with the West Inilias.
Loxnox, April 8. The Foreign Office;
has published the correspondence respecting
the negothtion for a treaty between the
United States and Great Britain in regard to
reciprocity of trade with the British West
Indias. On October 25, 1834, Lord Gran
ville, British Minister of Foreign Affairs,
directed Minister West to propose to the
American Secretary of State the following
basis for a treaty: The British West Indian
colonies to abolish their duties on the fol
lowing articles coming from the United
States: Bread, biscuits butter, cheese, com,
meals of all kinds, flour, lard, lumber, kero
sene, oil meal and oil cake, and Mime of the
colonies to also abolish the duties on hams,
meats, shooks and staves. The United
States, in return therefor, to reduce the duty
on sugar coming from these colonies at least
fifty per cent
On November 20 Minister West informed
Lord Granville that the United States re
quired a wider basis for tho treatj-, and that
they also stipulated that the advantages
proposed to be conferred upon the United
States should not also be conceded gratis to
third parties under the "most favored na
tion" clause of treaties.
On December 4, Minister West forwarded
to Lord Granville a draft of a counts treaty
'proposed by Mr. Frelinghuysen. This is an
elaborate document, containing schedules of
150 articles upon which an abolition of co
lonial duties was desired, in return for
which concessions the United States would
abolish the duty on all sugars below No. 10,
Dutch standard. The exclusion of third
parties from the benefits of the colonial
concessions is also insisted upon in this
draft as an indispensablo element in any
Included in the correspondence on this
point is an estimate by Sir John Lubbeck,
M. P. for London University, in which he
states that the adoption of Secretary Fre
linghnysen's proposeil treaty would reduce
the revenues of the affected colonies by only
SOOO.OOO annually, whilo the jearlylossto
the United States would lie 512.500,000.
Sir John stronglj- urged llie acceptance of
the Frclinghtiysen taritt and this recom
mendation was concurred in by Minister
On February 12, however. Lord Granville
directed Mr. West to inform tho American
Secretary of State that it would be impos
sible to accept the proposals made by the
United States. To do this would be to
admit a principle which would revolution
ize the conventional stipulations as to
commerce among all nations. It would
render the "favored nation clause" a fruit
ful cause of dispute and would, in fact be a
plain infringement of International law.
Lord Granville minutely criticised the jioints
raised by Mr. Frclinghuysen's proposition,
and in conclusion expressed regret at being
compelled to reject the draft and his hope
fulness that an agreement satisfactory and
beneficial to both nations will be reached
sooner or later.
A copy of this dispatch was forwarded by
Lord Granville to the Colonial Office witti
the additional comment that the concessions
offered by the United States were of less
real than apparent alue, and that the pro
posal lacked the essential elements of a s'v

New- York, April 8. General Grant took
a severe coughing spell yesterday morning,
and an injection of morphine was given
which caused the General to fall asleep, and
the hemorrhage ceased naturally and w ith
out any stiptic applications. The hemor
rhage -was arterial and not venous blood.
The General seems not at all frightened.
The hemorrhage was due to some increase
of the disease, induced bj' a momentary fit
of coughing. The probabilities are that the
General will surv ive the day.
During the forenoon yesterday General
Grant continued to grow weaker and took
food under protest There were very few
callers during the day and no one was
allowed to see him except Dr. Newman, ex
Senator Chaffee, his physicians and mem
bers of the family. At two o'clock Drs.
Barker, Sands. Shrady and Douglas found
it was Impossible to make a thorough ex
amination of the patient's throat owing to
his enfeebled condition. All agreed that
the General had grown weaker since the
hemorrhage and that no change could be
made in the mode of treatment Ulj-sses
Grant son of Orville Grant said that It was
doubtful if the General lived through the
night He had been sleeping some and ap
peared cheerful, and would occasionally
smile to those near him. Dr. Newman, in
conversation with the General yesterday,
told him that ever body seemed to be his
friends. The General replied: "Yes, I
have also many friends on the other side,
and they are waiting for ma I hopo they
will not have to wait long."
2 A. m. General Grant continues in a
comfortable condition. He has slept well
and his rule is eighty-four. There is no
appearance of the hemorrhage remaining in
the expectoration. He lias just taken nour

at French balls year after year, youth
ful, bright-eyed, red-cheeked and agile
women. I hare observed that these)
young creatures, who had certainly
passed SO years when I first saw them
ten or twelve years- ago, are invariably
accompanied by callow and blonde
young men. I will add very young

querades leaning affectionately on the
arm of a crushed and joyloss sapling,
and the sapling invariably thinks be haa
tho finest tiling at the ball There are.

of these narrow-chested, rather delicate-featured,
light-haired and rather
well-dressed young menat every French
ball, and they have more real vivacity
and life, grow more excited over pretty
things, and dance with more enthusi
asm than anyone else at the ball. .K
