CLAMORINU FOR TERRITORY.
Lo.NDon, July 18. Thin aftumoon it was
known that Eurl Beaconstield would be on
the floor auil vindietito Enluiid s action at
Berlin. The house of" lords was filled with
a brilliant aasembly. The attendance of
jKiers was so lart;e that all tho red benches
were filled. On tho steps of the throne
were several members of the royal family.
The galleries contained a largo number of
ladies of rank and fashion and all uicmburs
of the diplomatic corps in London were
present in their gallery. Upon rising to
speak, Earl Beacmistield, who was looking
remarkably well, said that England had
conferred an inestimable bom ujton Europe
and the world by inducing Russia to assent
to the modifications that had been made at
Berlin to the treaty of San Stefano. Eng
land hud secured thu peace of the conti
nent. She had advanced the cause of
civilization and Christianity ; she hail given
to her faithful ally and friend, the sultan,
a territory secure from invasion;
she had provided for the engagement
of political equality . and of "religious
freedom in all its dominions aud
in the new iniv'nce-' i-i i...i tt--
Imlepvndenre ot Montenegro and Servia,
and by giving over the protectorate of
Bosnia and Herzegovina to Austria, she had
provided for the safety of the inhabitants of
these regions. He justified the line of east
ern Rouuielia and the cession of Sofia and
Batoum. England, he said, had always re
sisted the partition of Turkey, as it would
involve Europe and Asia in constant strug
gles. All the European powers, Hussia in
cluded, were now unanimously of the opin
ion that for tl e best interest of Europe the
sultan shoulJ remain a great power in the
world. England would not be justified in
going to a Wng and expensive war to pre
vent Russia from acquiring Kara and Ba
toum, and Russian demands had been
conceded to. The object of the
Anglo-Turkish convention for the
occupation of Cyprus by En
gland wixnot a military object. He urged
Turkey to treat Greece with all consistent
liberality, and said that Greece must learn
patience. In eonclusion the premier said
that England had notified Hussia that she
could go thus far and no farther, a sea
was large enough for Uth. England was
resolved to defend Turkey against any fur
ther attacks from Russia. The occupation
of Cyprus by England was not a war meas
ure, but a step in the progress of peace.
He assured his hearers that England did
not fear war with any nation, nor did she
seek war. He said the congress throughout
had been marked by an earnest spirit of
giXMl will and true statesmanship. Through
out his speech Earl Beaeonstield was repeat
edly cheered ami sat down amid enthusi
astic applause. A large crowd collected iu
the plaza between Westminister abbey und
the peers' entrance to the house of lords and
greeted him with cheers upon his arrival
Ill the house of lords to-day, Sevenim,',
Earl of Granville, in a brief speech, mildly
criticized the speech of Lord Bi'iieonsrield.
An angry discussion then occurred between
Earl Derby and the Marquis of Salisbury,
and caused au unusual sensation throuirh
out the house. Earl Derby said that ho
hud left the cabinet because the govern
ment had resolved upon sending a secret
expedition from India to occupy the island
of Cyprus and the Syrian ports, against the
will'of the sultan, if necessary. Tho Mar
quis of Salisbury, replying to tho Earl, very
emphatically said thu statement was false,
Upon this there was a great uproar among
tho members, many of whom rose to their
feet; whereupon the Marquis substituted the
word unauthentic in place of false. Tho
Earl of Derby reiterated his remarks, when
the house adjourned amid wild confusion.
London, July IU. In parliament to-day,
the government continued the statenixut
that the Russians had tired Into an English

ENTHUSIASM OVER RKACONSK1 ELD.
There was an enthusiastic sccno in the
house of lords this evening, The hall was
crowded, and Earl Beaeonstield was receiv.
ed with loud cheers and waving of hand
kerchief. The premier, in a short address,
said tho mod i float ions made to the treaty of
San Stefano had averted it menace to Eu
rope. The congress had returned the sultan
two-thirds of Bulgaria and justilled tho ces
sion of Sophia.

London, July IS. The Times' Constan
tinople disnatch crives the following neronnr
of the tiring npon an unarmed Ismt from the
British man-of-war by Tussiitns near the
gulf of Sorosi. The captain of the English
steamer reports tiiat lie was stopped off Gal

recting him to take on loard Lieut. Hughes,
sent by Admiral Cockrell to report the fol

A GENERAL ELECTION URGED.
London, July 18. The corresMndent of

in principle, and it will uojHind upon cir

Many members of the cabinet are opposed
to a general election, but the premier strong
ly favors it.
At a meeting of the members of the com
mon council of London to-day it was re
solved to bring forward a motion at the
general meeting of the council that Lords
Beoonsrteld and Salisbury be entitled to h
banquet and to be presented with the free-

THE FOUR PER CENTS GAINING IN

supply the demand a half million
silver dollars exchanged for gold
coin ben hi tler to th e front gov
ernment employes to be paid in gold.
Washington, July 18. Late events have
made General Ben Butler a significant fig
ure in our general politics. This able and
unscrupulous lawyer now practice! before
the U. S. court of this district, and by vir
tue of his position on the house judiciary
committee, bulldozes tho judges into ab
surd demands he makes in Mialf of his
clients. The same judges were on the bench
through tho corrupt times from 1871 to
17.), when what is properly known its tho
"Washington ring" flourished, and there is
not one of them, although they may all bo
as pure as Marshall, who cures to have an
investigation into the part borne by the dis.
trict judiciary in strengthening the hands
of the board of public works. Butler
knows this, and his practice here now, con
sidering the position ho holds, is little
different from black-mailing. Said
a man to me last evening, who
had yesterday been beaten, as he thought,
because Butler was against him. "Let them
elect him Governor of Massaehusets, so as
as to get 1 i i in oil' the judiciary committee of
the house, and we will have a show of jus.
tico in tho district courts." Perhaps this
kind of practice illustrates as well as any
thing can, the character of Butler, yet, as I
said, hois becoming an important factor in
our politics. Whatever dissensions exist in
the Democratic or Republican parties had
better bo healed, so that whatever other cal
amity may befall us, wo may be spared the
the shiiino of seeing such a man as this
swindle Ids way into the white house.
If Secretary Scliurz means to reorganize
the force in his department without regard
to politics one cannot understand his recent
actions. Commissioner of Patents Spear of
Maine, has been asked to resign.
He is a friend to B'aino. Commissioner
of Pensions, Bentley, of Wisconsin, is away
on leave and is not expected to return
He is a friend of Howe. Other changes,
by which friends of prominent "stalwart"
Republicans are to bo retired to private
NEW SERIES-NO. 07
lifo, aro spoken of. From tho latest Indi
cations tho places will all bo filled by
Administration Republicans, if enough of
them can be found. If the secretary ever
intended to make his reorganization non
partisan he has evidently reconsidered that
intention. What he or his chief cxneorn ti
gain iu tho face of tho fall elections, by
nirtiier dividing their party is hard to tell.
It is said that Government employes hero
ill bo paid for the month of July in aolhl
gold and silver money. This will be tho
first timesiuce 1801, and it is safe to say that
many a veteran clerk will celebrato on
August 1st tho return of tho "good old
times." But the purchasing power of the
greenback is tho same as of cold, and tho
change will lie interesting rather than im
ItepulHcau papers, no ' doubt from tho
best and most disinterested of motives, liavo
tried to create an impression that Voorhecs.
of Indiana, would not bo elected his own
successor to tho United States Senate.
There has been no doubt of his election
among well-informed men, and tho indica
tions now are that no other Democrat will
be mentioned in tho Legislature.
Washington, July 18. Tho treasurer of
the United States is preparing a list o
Unitd States depositories for the purpose)
of sending one to each national bank
throughout the country. Attached to these
lists will be tho neces-ary information
for obtaining standard silver dollars in ex
change for greenbacks, etc. Any bank or
individual wanting silver dollars in any
reasonable amount for legitimate purposes
will find no difficulty in the way ot obtain
ing them. As authoritatively stated in
these dispatches last night, every means will
be used by the government to wipe out tho
remaining premium on gold and bring
about a state of practical resumption. In
addition to tho plans already announced in
these dispatches it can !e stated that silver
and gold certificates will be issued by the
several mints in payment for gold and silver
bullion. A clause in tho legitimate ap
propriation hill authorizes this to be done.
It is believed that a large amount of these
certificates can bo thus placed within the
next few months and that they will liecome
a favorite circulating medium among those
who find it inconvenient to handle stand
ard silver dollars or gold coin.
DEMAND FOR FOUR PER CENTS.
Owing to numerous applications for reg
istered 4 per cent. Ixmds of small denomina
tions, the Treasury has Wen unable, with
all tho clerical force which could be em
ployed thereon, to till orders as rapidly as
received. Purchasers of bonds should un
derstand, however, that the interest willrun
from the date of payment tor the bonds, and
S2 It'M tltMjtM iillil'Wtmo&'accounl
ot the suddenly increased orders will result
in no loss or injury. The department is us
ing every possible exertion, however, to pre
vent all delays in the future, and in a few
days will probably be able to till all orders
from their receipt.

A MUSCULAR PRIMA DONNA.
From thu Cblcajjo Tlmea.
Frau Wilt, the Austrian prima donna, lias
a voice that is heavenly, and the most dread
ful appearance of any artist I ever saw.
Frau Wilt has a great many pecularities,
and one of them is her great avarice. When
she dines at a restaurant, if iu a good hu
mor, she gives tho waiter pour lioire (drink
money) of uno kreutzer about ca ent of
our money and when she is in one of her
tempers she not only gives him nothing, but
wants to take back tho cent sho gave him
the day before. She is now a grandmother,
and yet her voice remains young and agree
able. She sings up to the upper F ami G,
and in the 'Hymn to St. Cecilia," by Handel,
she makes a trill on the high C and D that
is the most wonderful ami beautiful ever
heard. It never ends, and goes on swelling:
out into the harmony of a thousand musical
throats all singing in one voice.
Her face is coarse and red, and her eyes
resemble those of an enraged bull whou al
most starting out of their sockets. She
weighs nearly or quite 300 pounds, and has
the muscular strength of a prize tighter.
Sho docs all her ow n work, and one day
tho impressario Morelli called to engage tho
well known soprano for a season of con
certs. After climbing five flights of stairs
he found the giantess of a woman scrub
bing tho sixth flight, ami when she was in
terrupted sho turned on him in a perfect
fury. "What do you wanti" said she to
the oily impressario, whose gentle voice
begged to pass.
"I wish to see Frau Wilt," responded tho
director, "and would thank you to"
"Not if I know it," cried the soprano,
with her arms akimbo and glowering down
on Morelli. "First, what do you want of
"My good woman, I don't know that it i
any of your business, ' said Mr. Morelli,
"but if you will let mo pass I don't mind
telling you that I have come to see Mine.
Wilt on business, and "
Tho creature smiled grimly, seized her
pail and mop cloth, flouished her red,
brawny arms iu Morelli's face, and with a
simple "Follow me," mounted tho stairs.
Sho threw open the door aud outered,
Morelli at her heels. Then, after going
through tho preliminaries of furiously
blowing her nose, sho wiped a great drop
of perspiration from her face and said
again: "What do you want? I am Frau
