New YORlf, June 1. Private dispatches
received from Washington Saturday con
tained the information that Secretary Nob
ble was about to resign. In order to con
firm these reports a reporter called ou Sen
ator Pettigrew, of South Dakota, who i
supposed to have received some assurance
that the secretaryship of the interior will
be tendered to him. The senator was
asked if he had heard of the rumored resig

received information last evening from
Washington, from which I consider a reli

shortly vacate his seat in the cabinet.''
H OBJECTS TO GROSVENOR.
A German Editor of M. Louis Wants tht
Ohio Man Itmuu-ed.
St. Lol ls, Jane 1. Richard Bartholdt,
e litorofthe German newspaper Tribune,
of this city, and chairman of the perma
nent committee appointed by the confer
ence of Herman societies held at Wash
ington City some time since, the object of
which committee is "to guard such German-American
interests as are identical
with those of our adopted country," has
written to Secretary Foster protesting
against the appointment of Gen. Grosve
nor as iiiimis;ratiou commissioner. oVing
to the sentiments alleged to have lieen ex
pressed in au interview at New York in
which Grosvenor is reported to have said
that Wisconsin was practically a foreign
says It Is Know-Not hingism.
Bartholdt says further: "His prejudice
displayed towards a state settled and made
prosperous by Germans is Know-Nothing-ism
pure and simple. While Mr. Grosvenor
judges the value of an American citizen by
his tongue, we claim that it should lie
gauged hythe individual's character, thrift,
inteiiigeuce, and love of liln-rty and law.
The bulk of the Germans must be classified
wuoni: t he liest Americans, and in the west
they constitute the T-oue and sinew of the
Kepu'blican party ever since the war, in
which they fought for the preservation of
the Union. 1 believe I voice thesentiment
of a majority of German-Americans if I
ask you to withdraw tien. Grosvenor's ap
pointment for which you and our party
will he held responsible, since Lis preju
dices have become publicly known."
