DISPATCH F.ECEiVEO FROM CHILI.
cstiTalay Moi-ion:;- llt-pot-l Vractia ally

W.v-li i Nvr. -v, .i.-.ti. T. It transpired late
yesli'td.-ty ni'icrnoon that Minister Kau
hart connnuiiicateiito the sec;etaty ia; state
the reply of the Chilian povcrnnicnt to
the note a, f Saci-itary Blaine i f the 21st
inst., as was stated in these dNpatol.es yis-ta-rahiy
morning from Sant iacro. The gen
eral iiict-a-il ulit y of the public rcpanlin;; the
Santiago dispatches was due to the fai t
that Monday Ku-.m had not ifia'd the depart
ment that the Chilian government asked
lor two or three ilnys lumcer in w hich to
make its answer, owincr to the abstnee if
President Moult at the springs above San
Ttatesn'l Mention an 4polO;y.
It was not until last niht that the fait
of the reception aif tha messjitce became cir
culated, and the sentiment, among public
men was ane of doubt and uncertainty.
They knew not at first what to say on the
subject when asked for opinions as to the
new phase af the matter. The statement
of the contents of the message in yester
day's telegram is said to lie practically cor
rect. Conversation with those acquainted
with the text of the note pives the impres
sion that it was not satisfactory. No onc-
whowasin a position to know them woulal
consent to discuss the terms of the reply.
The fact, however, that there is no in fer
ence to an apology for the assault upon the
Baltimore s sailors is sufficient to account
for the dissatisfaction aif the af!ieia)s with
Satisfacttary as to Malta's Nt.te.
As tothe Matta note, the olT. r aif Chili is
lielieved to 1m fully up m the demand
made by the note of the 21st instant to
Minister Kigali. The m.-uior of the hitter's
recall is lielieva-d ta have been sufficiently
ettled by the terms oft hat note.nnd there
fore 110 referenca- to it in the repiv was
necessary. As was stated Monday rtipht

WAKHiNtiToN, Jan. sr. The notable
thing in congress ya'steralay was the speech
in the house of Brei kinri.lfxe of KeLtucky.
Breckinrialgewasaiftho.se whoa-iitieUcd the
inessae as report eal in liiest; dispatches of

direct Imputation that at the time the
president haal sent t imt messaEP to eon
gress he (the presida-nt) knew that Chili
had sent a reply to the ultimatum, and
what that reply was. Breckinridge was
not supported in his aartion by any other
member who saial anything, and his at
tempt to have his resolution aeteal on at
once was evidently not approveal of by his
I emoarat ic co'ieaijues, especially those
from the sout h.

The resolution re.uls as follows:

A liiaaralaaal Impntatiaan.
Thtrofore it was not ttni jjivat a pre
sumption to indulge in that a president aif
a tv;tt and free peph. dealing with afive
people, would not have used such lan
iV"ia.s,'e penal 111$; eonsialaTJition by Chili in
its answer to the dispatch. It was not too
trreat a presumption to indulge inth.it a
frave emergency like that would hare
called from that president due consideration
ami ample time, if he hail not haal some in
timationof what the answer woulal be.
It was scarcely credible th.at the
language so he woulal not say insulting
but so severe, nsed by him. would have
lia-a-n iisefl if he had believed that a friend
ly anal sufficia-nt re-sponse woulal have been
made to the dispatch af Jan. 31.

The reply aaf C'hiii was t tie subject
of a consultation ba-twea-n the pra.iaent
and Fea retary Blaine at a late hour yester
day , afternaKm, as wall sis nt the
mectim; of the cabinet at noon.
The views of the United States jrov
ernment upon the reply will probably not
lie camimuuicataKl to Chili fora day or two.
In the meantime the text of the message of

W ill Not Arbitrate the Apology.
Further inquiry last niht strentrtheneai
the impression that the reply of Chili is
not tatisfactairy to the members of the
United States government. AlthoupU the
answer proposes to withdraw the Matta
note, the tenor of the offer is not agreeable.
The proposition said to be contained in the
reply to arbitrate the Baltimore affair is
taken to mean the whole question, whether
or not Chili shall apologize as well as pay
indemnity. Of course that will not be en
tertained; the United States must be the
judge of the propriety of demanding an
apology that cannot be arbitrated.
