We note, lmlewl, the cltenrmtauce that xearly nil the morning papers, except the New York World, contain reports of a flat denial of the whole story by the British Minister. The World occupies the proud and lonesome position of having found Sir Inllan unwilling to talk on the subject. Jt proceeds, therefore, to reproduce the ftor's testation with highly florid elab oration, tjlng a string to It, however, by adding this final paragraph: W HJe the HW eerre'pondeet has the bet antbOfKy for the abme, It Is jalte likely that there amy be a brums h of the Informa tion retetlre to the suhjeet whleh wtwkl.lf irade rMte,eatH It to appear In a Jew serl ms HphU It the matter were as grave as let rmlketed, it l not likely that Mr. Maine would b resllae qnletlr at IMr Harbor. The "branch of the Information' ltferred to must be that vory branolt which the iirraM, Sun, Tribune ami other lending papers got hold of, to wit: the British Minister's sweeping denial of the whole businoes. As we say, however, there Is doubt Hss great Irritation, and this may at any, time bum out Into a Unme very t'.StJleiilt to control. It wouldn't be a bad idea to keep sotne of these prema turfe HBsatlomln stock ready for ue lt-r on. NO SUCH SCHEME' Yesterday's C'Mrric contained the re I rrntof a ipecial teteeram from Clncln Kfctl to the New York Timet, giving hat purported to be the utterances of South Carolina merchant apropot f the Federal Elections bill. ThU Charleston merchant, whoee name Is baibfutly withheld, undertakes to fore t ait the policy that will be pursued at the South in case the Lodge bill should become a law. He sajs the negro Is to be boycotted, denied employment, turned ut to starve, while his place will be filled by white laborers The Charleston man declares that the plan is fully or ganhrod and that It Includes also, a boy cott against Northern products, meat, (ornmcal, feedstuff, etc., all of which are to be raised at home or lraportod from Europe. He further asserts that the whole South Is aroused on the sub ject ami that the application of the em bargo will be universal and slmultan cow. Now, weretpectfully, but firmly, pro claim that this U all bosh of pureat ray nation. No considerable number of Southerners are going to do any one of the thing s mentioned by the Charleston merchant la Cincinnati, Southern merchants have not the faintest idea of buying their goods anywhere except in tbebacasd cheapest markets, and It will take a good deal more than the Lodge Election bill to sevre their lelatfo&s with the business men of the greet Northern cities, between whoa aBd themselves the naort cardial relations exist. It is quite posetble that the execution of the Lodge L1H is the Southern States may lead, to disorder that will arrest the prosperity of that section sad thus diminish the ulwse of Its commerce In every illree tkii, but that there la any iateattoa to adopt a paHey evee approximating the . ce I qoeatioa is widely and extrava atrj abeurd.

The Sullivan music met with some rather surprising rontrttempi here and there at the bands of cast and clients, and the Gilbert humor considerable emendation and amplifica tion from the versatile yntingcometlian. But, after all, it was In and on the main the same breer.y. melodious, tie llgbtful old "Pinafore,' from time Im memorial so securely anchored In the snug harbor of our memories and affections.
