Ho will soon establish a iuIo limiting thoso calls to tho foronoou and naming ono day in each wook on which ho will sco no callors. By theso moans ho hopes to bo able to get along moro rapidly with tho accumulated business. Tho old United States war-ship Niagara, built in 1851, which cost $750,000, was sold at auction at Boston yestorday for $12,!!00. Tho vessel ha3 boou anchored at tho navy yard over sluco tho war.

In tho progress of tho Treasury count a largo box was found in ono of tho vault3 aud was forced opon. Tho chost was found to contain bottles of jewels and porfumos, nnd a chunk of gold presented by tho Japnncso Govornmout to Prcsidont Monroo in 1823, Tho Jowols woro dopo3ltod lu tho Treasury ponding legislation authorizing tholr ncccptancc, and as tho hill never passed tho box has remained undlstutbod, Tho selection of Gcorgo G.

A son of Sonator l'ligh aud a relative of Sonator Butler aro among tho young mou undergoing this training, Secretary of Stato Bayard rccolvod a tolo gram ycstculay from Minister Morton at Paris to tho effect that Amerlciu nttornoys having interests in awards mado by tho lato Fionch commission must mako regular op position to paymont of ontiro awards to claimants, iu nccoidanco with French law. Agreements and all proofs of claims should bo sent to him at onco, proporly certified as for legal uso in n foroigu country. Ex-Senator Wlthors of Virginia is In tho city aud will soon proceed to his post us Consul nt Hong Kong. Tho Sonator iudlg nnntly rcsonts tho chaigo that ho has boon a conspicuous example of tho demoralizing lnlluouco of political olllco. From tho tlmo ho was succeeded by Mahono ho says ho has been living lu qulot rotlromont on hts farm lu Wytho County. Ho has run for no olllco, sought none aud hold none, Postmastor-Gonoral Vilas has notlflod tho Membors of Cougi033 that thoy must deter mine tho postmasters of tho fourth clai3 for tholr Eovornl districts. Ho finds many applications Indorsed by Mombors for tho eamo ofllco, and ho Insists that somo ono man must bo designated by tho Mombor, as ho docs not dcslro to decide botwoen tho rival nsplranls. This will glvo Congress men employment for somo months to come. Tho report of tho commlttoo upon tho ventilation of tho Treasury Depirtmont has not yet been acted on by Sccrotary Man ning. Tho recommendation for porunnont lellcf Is said to bo that two additional stories bo put on tbo building, and by this means mako it posslblo to romovo all tho employes from tho basement. A plan Is also suggested to remedy tho existing ovll until tho moro important recommendation, which necessitates a largo appropriation by Con gress, can bo carriod out. Tho roport that tho Austrian Govern ment has protested against Minister Kolloy Is contradicted nt tho Stato Dopartmont and by tho Austrian Minister. Tho roason alleged is that Minister Kolloy's Jowlsh wlfo could not bo rccolvcd at court. It is assorted in reply to this that Mrs. Kolloy abjured hor religious faith nt tho tlmo of hor marriago, and also that thoro is no custom excluding a Hobrow from recognition at tho Austrian court. DEMOCRATS IK THE DUMPS. Tlio President's Appointment Policy Vigorously Protested AirnltiHt. Tho smoldering discontent which has for moro than n month pormoatod cortain Dem ocratic circles hero, broko out last night In a meeting of couferonco, hold at Wlllard's, tho results of which aro to-day tho roigulug political sensation. Thoro woro present Democratic Senators, Representatives and promluout citizens from Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois, In diana, Missouri, Kentucky, Virginia and clsowboro, Including sovoral mombors of tho National Democratia Commlttoo. Tho discussions woro lengthy and earnest. It was urged that Prosldont Ciovoland aud nearly all bis Cab! not had rcfusod to rcmovo Republican oillco-holdcrs, ovon on tho ground of offouslvo partisanship, aud that throughout all tho Departments thoro wcro Republicans who had voluntarily con tributed their tlmo aud monoy to tho Re publican campaign, hut yet thoy woro not only cncouiagod to remain, bat it was deemed an offcuoo to ovon suggest tholr removal. Tho President had bcon informed that tho greatest sourco of dlscontont was tho postofllccs, which aro not bolug flllod by Democrats, whllo Republicans aro laughing defiance Thoy blamed tho Prosidout for not demanding tho resignation of First As sistant Postmastor-Gouoral Hay nnd ap pointing an assistant who could aid tho Postmastor-Gonoral in filling tho small postolllccs. Thoy blamod tho Prosldont for not removing Republican ollleo-holdors in tbo States and giving tho olllcos to tho victors. After an intorchango of vlows it was gen erally agreed that if tho Administration continued to keep Republicans in olllco, tho Prcsidont should bo gontly informed that ho must look to tho Republicans In Con gress for support. "Tho Prcsidont has told us," said ono Senator to-day, "that wo must bo conserva tive in theso matters. I didn't uudorstaud that wo carried tho last election on a 'pos sum policy. Wo mado a straightout fight and won. Whoso was tho victory? Tnls thing of keeping Republicans in ofllco ho causo thoy might fool hurt if romovod, may i tiro sort or policies tuoy uavo up iu heaven, but it won't do on earth." NOT ENOUGH MON EY. Liability of llio Court Iliislncss to bo Niiseinlcl. On account of a deficient appropriation to pay jurios and witnesses, tho buslnossof tho grand jury, tho Circuit Court nnd tho Criminal Court Is llablo to bo suspended In about ton days from now. Tho Marshal has in his possession only nbout $1,500 to defray tho oxpenso incurred by tho jurios. Thoro aro just sovonty-flvo Jurors to pay at i-2 por day, making $150 por day. Under tho law no oxpenso against tbo United States can bo incurred. To continuo tho business of tho courts after ton days tho juiors will havo to agrco to tako tholr chances of getting n special appropriation from Congress, and, also, to hold no ono re sponsible for tho debt.' This contingency occurred in 1870, whon such an understanding was had. Certifi cates wcro Issued to tho jurors nnd tho Court mado separato orders for thoir pay ment, so as to glvo prima facia ovidenco of their sorvlco to tho Govornmont. Tho jurors had no troublo In realising on theso certificates. Tho Bauk of tho Itopub lie bought them up at a discount. Somo of tho jurors held thorn. Tho requlslto ap propriation for thoir paymont was mado by Congress. All tho courts aro overcrowdod with busi ness, and to suspoud operations and allow It to furthor accumulato would work a great disadvantage to porsons having busi ness beforo tho courts. Tho question If tho contlnuanco of tho work past tho point whoro tho appropriation closes remains to bo sottlod by tho court and tho jurors; tho lattor not bolng com pelled to sorvo undor tho circumstances un less thoy sco fit.
