RERUN, June 20. Consideration of the
Bulgarian question in the congress was
again postponed yesterday, because the
plenipotentiary to open the discussion was not
ready with his proposals. The powers con
tinue to act in groups, but not necessarily
in a hohtile sense. Austria and England
are firm on one point of view and Turkey
front another, to opKM Rii!sia's claims.
Germany, France and Italy adopt a niedi

EVACUATION OF IUTi ARIA .
Iindox, June 20. A correspondent at
Berlin snys : The compliance of Russia with
the demand of England and Austria for the
evacuation of Bulgaria l y the Russians, on
or shortly after the conclusion of peace,
and the garrisoning of u Balkan line by the
Turks, is deemed the sine qua mm on
which the success, of the congress de
pends. THE PRIVATE CONFERENCE
of the Russian, Austrian and English plen
ipotentiaries oh Thursday afternoon lasted
two hours without arriving at any serious
result relative to the Bulgarian question,
though accord was effected on several minor
It is probable that, in order not to alarm
the public by continual abortive sittings of
congress, the next sitting will be postponed
until Monday or Tuesday, so that the
above mentioned three Powers may come
before the congress with a decent showing.
The Turks will accept whatever England
decides on relative to Bulgaria. It is lie
lievt'd that Russia will untiniately give
continues his system of preventing all ani
mated discussion at public sittings, Thus
after the congress had accepted the prin
ciple of admitting Greece further discus

promising some important restrictions like

lie settled at the next sitting what particular
subjects Greece is to be permitted to dis

DISSATISFIED SUGAR 0B0WEK8 NQTKfl.
Kingston, June 20. Some large sugar
estates in the Parish of St. Mary have been
sold far below their value $50,000 be.
cause the owners are dissatisfied with the
Government system of immigration, which
the planters relv upon for taking off their
crops, native lulxir being capricious. The
cattle alone on these ostat!8, which can lie
driven off, are valued at $25,000, and there
is a crop of sugar and rum to be taken off
A VENERABLE SWINDLER.
Venerable Arch Deacon Row has

is supposed, he is beyond the reach of
British law. He still draws $4,000 per an

The Quebec Mercury of the 10th inst.
says: "This morning two men lost their
lives on board the steamer Sarmatian while
lying at her wharf, Champlain-street.
While opening up the lower forward hold,
in which was stowed a quantity of oranges,
seven men went down to unlade the cargo,
when they were all more or less overcome
by foul gas. A ship laborer named Plante
was the last to reach the ladder to re-ascend,
but at its very foot he fell back ex
haused. A quartermaster named George
Milway, who was mounting the ladder im
mediately in front of Plante, heroically re
decended to his rescue, but tho chocky air
had done its work, and the brave man also
fell a Ictiin athwart of Plante. The chief
officer of the steamer then made a valiant
effort to recover the two unfortunate men.
but was driven back and reached the deck
in a state of stupirication. One of the sail
ors then essayed the task, being lowered by
a rope, but he had to be hauled up without
accomplishing his mission. The chief offi
cer, being restored to consciousness, was
again lowered, and a second time nearly
uis urv lu uu humane effort. Finally,
after much labor, mpsun-crenttuehosi to the
bodies of the quartermaster and Plante,
and they were drawn up, but life was found
to be extinct in each case."
A CONTRADICTION BY GENERAL
From tbo Baltimore Sun.
General Grant was recently reported by a
correspondent as speaking disparagingly of
Stonewall Jackson while at Constantinople.
Colonel Mosby, of Virginia, wrote to Gen
eral Grant, inquiring if he had used the
language attributed to hint. General
Grant, w.iting under date of l'aris, May 20,
in reply, says :
'You say I am reported as speaking dis
paragingly of S.onewall Jackson by one
corresjxmdcnt. I have not seen that. I
knew Jackson when he was a cadet, severed
with him in the Mexican war, and know
that he enjoyed the confidence and resjiect
of all who knew him. He was regarded as
a man of great ability, great perseverance
and great pie.y. Whatever he did he did
conscientiously, no matter whether it was
right or wrong. I have compared him ' l
conversation with Cromwell. It is prob
able that I have said as much to you alsmt
Jackson as I ever have to anv correspond
A NEW OFFICE.
Washington. D. C, June 20. The most
important and lucrative office established
by congress at the session just ended is that
of auditor of railroad accounts. This ollice
in fact is a new bureau of the government.
The railrmid auditor is to have the siijmt
vision of the accounts of all the Pacific rail
road companies and will have four salaried
assistants. It will be a new thing for these
railroad companies to have to open ii all
their lsioks at any time when the Auditor
calls upon them." The salary of the audi
tor is $5.0110 u year. The gentleman np-
pointeil, Ilieoplulus French, of Ohio, has
been for sometime chief clerk of tho bureau
of accounts in tho ollice of the treasurer of
the United States. He is regarded as a
competent person, lie has aided Senator
Thurnian in getting up the bills proposed
I iv him in regard to the Pacific railroad.
This ollice will perform the functions which
it was stiis)sed that the government direc
tors would perform, but which they have
signally failed to do.

Hon. Y. E. Albright informs us that ho

McNamee, tho man who made the wan
ton attack on Dr. Barnes, at the insane nsv
lum, this spring, hearing, one day this week,
that his wife was at tiimaroa, sought to
see her, and when admitted to her presence,
drew a pistol and shot her, the ball passing
into her head at the ear, and glancing down
ward into the ii"ck. This wound is, we
we learn, not considered dangeroiK This
fool-killer then turned the pistol on his
heart and killed himself; and that's what's
the matter, in brief, with .McNamee.

WAsniNOTON, June 20. The winding
up of the session this morning at seven
o'clock, after an all-night siege, closed in
on a disgraceful scene. After the sundry
civil bill had passed early in the morning,
tho two houses were kept in session by
ream of the delay in preparing that bill
for the nignature of the president. Tho
house took a rcccs and the senate was in
executive session nearly all of the remain
ing time nnd no business of importance
was transacted. The house did pass
a resolution offered by Mr. Frank
lin of Missouri that in the investigation of
the late Door-Kecpcr Polk, nothing had
been shown affecting his integrity or reflect
ing upon him as an honorable man. On
motion of Mr. Sayler of Ohio an amendmeut
was adopted allowing Col. Polk extra pay
for expenses incurred in tho investigation.
During the last two or three hours of the
session in tho house, members were sleeping
on the floor, on tha sofas and ot their desks.
When any business was attempted there
were cat calls and shouts of louder and the
like. The Mrs. Hayes temperance society
meets to-morrow to pass resolutions de
precating drunkenness on the part of mem
bers of congress.
