hoNlios, June 23. The crisis in political
affairs is believed to have been pasted, and
most probably today all differences between
Conservatives and Liberals will bearrargnl,
and the Coinervativis will form a new Cab
inet. It is said that some technical points
only yet remain to be nettled, in principle.
It is (laimed that .Mr. (iliidstcuq has not
departed trom tbe lines originally adopted by
him, but he hns made fuller comiFsions to
the Conservatives than were hopul for. It is
expected here that lliron Von Slaal, lluvhn
emba tailor, has been instructed by his gov
ernment to mnintiln an attitude of reserve
toward) the government ol Mnrq-iis ol ali'
bury, also to lopiit that .ulfiknr I'nfs ought
to belong to Itu.'sla, In o-iler to check any
advance tho Argbnnstan may propose to rnnke
into Russian territory.

House of Lords this evening, and Mr. Glad
stone malt- a similar announcement in the
House of Common', that the .Marquis uf Salis
bury had accented office, and lie hail gone to
Windsor Castle lu so inform the Queen. A
motion was made, in each house, to adjourn
until Thursday next.
The Marquis of Salisbury will make the an
nouncement in the lli.ue' of Lords tonight,
that Olsilaloni- having given sufficient and
entirely satisfaitory assurances ol aid In ion
duct of government he (Salisbury) will ttik
office and form a cabinet.
Mr. Gladstone said he hoped by tomorrow
to be able to inform the House ol tbe nature
of the communication which passed between
himself and the Marquis ot Salisbury upon tbe
subject of the nccnt cabinet deadlock.

Mt. McOiiKoon, N'. Y., Jure 23 Dr.
Djugbxss was this morning asked to maki a
comparison of the General's condition no
and the day he started from New York. He
said: "General Grant could not have lived in
New York till this tim with
the weather such as it was when be
left. Ho was sinking very rapidly then
and that was why we bad to hasten the time
of leaving, which wes orginally fixed for to
day. In making a comparison ot the Gen
eral's condition a week ego and now, there is
a central lact that must alas is contideiel,
that his pains are deeply severe all the time,
and that we must stand by and wat:h the
course of his ill lie a with the consciousness
ol being unable to stay it. Starting Irom that
fact the incidents of daily changes maybe
noted. You ask me if (leneral Grant coughs
as much now a then. I cannot tell that
definitely; sometimes in eating food be coughs
and it might 1 thought to be from other
causes. I would say that he might this
morning walk back and forth on the piazra
with less fatigue than would have rebutted
one week ago.
Laat night, at midnight, Hie mercury was
down to 48 degrees, 44 at six this morning.
Between 5 and i o'clock, the doctor treated
Gen. Grant's throat, after which he spoke to
the phicign In quite a clear voice, paying,
"I have bad a good night, I slept well and
feel rested now." Hegalnel some Bleep be
tween that time and 9 o'eljck, when his
throat was again attendel and 'ood was giv
en. The General then dozed off again.

ican manager for Cook's Tourist Agency,
says that he has no Information about tho

foundation for doubting his actual death.
Ho says that tho doubt has arisen In tho
minds of tho llrltlsh Insurance company
In which Preller had a imllcy, la-cause) they
liewamo suspicious on account of tho rumor
of an attempt topurt-haso a body In Hoston,
and because the dead man's family are anx

only an over-sol Id tudo on tho part ot the
