DA-OEB OK AN 1 !*M— KM. £*
Chicago, June Ist.— There is great dan
ger of a quarrelsome explosion **», the Con
vention, in consequence of tin defeat of
Grant's nomination, which seeu.s to lie more
probable than ever to-day. Conkling, Cam
eron and some other Grant leaders, conscious
that they have lost control of the Conven
tion, are apparently disposed to have it de
stroyed by inharmony. Senator Jones, who
is laboring earnestly in the interests of peace,
was selected this morning to see Cameron and
endeavor to agree upon some satisfactory
basis for conciliation. If Cameron persists
in his refusal to entertain the anti-Grant res
lutione moved yesterday, thirty of th* forty
seven members of the National Committee
have agreed to depose him from the Chair
manship to-day. The committee is now in
session. The mulish attitude of the Grant
men is supposed to have for its motive the
desire to make terms which shall include
the defeat of Blame, whose friends claim,
as eviderce .of their own moderation, ;
the fact that they postponed their proposed :
action ae-unst Cameron until he should have
hail the Tight to review the situation and
find seme more harmonious solution of the
difficulty. While it is by no means certain
yet that Blame will be nominated, the indi
cations aro that he is gaining much positive
strength hourly. His danger, if any, lies in
an obstinate adherence of the Sherman, Ed
munds and Washburne men to their respect
ive favorites. This might be fatal to Blame,
if the ultra-Grant men can succeed in so di
viding and attributing their forces among
other candidates as to prevent a majority for
Blame until the Convention is exhausted by
numerous ballots. This game is fully antici
pated by Blame's friends, who in a discreetly
but uot defiantly firm tone and conciliatory
manner profess to be confident that the pop
ular sentiment for their favorite, as admitted
by numerous delegates who came here
pledged to other candidates, will enable them
to reverse the practice of killing the strong
est candidate for the sake of gome weak one.
It is known that at least two additional New
York delegates will join the nineteen pro
testants against ('rant, and another, making
twenty-three in all, is e.xpectod to join them
in the crucial moment.
INCREASED ex cm: est.
Chicago, June Ist.— The excitement which
seemed to prevail in the city last night is
exceeded by that of to-day. It having been
announced that at 11 o'clock the adjourned
meeting of the "National Committee would be
held, and that a further refusal of Mr. Cam- i
eron to entertain the anti-unit rule resolution
would result in his immediate decapitation,
a rush was made for the vicinity of the com
mittee rooms, where the question at issue is
now being wildly discussed. There are two
opinions among the majority of the commit
tee. One, led by ex-Senator Chaffee, is for
the removal of Cameron and a radical change
of all committees. The other is field by
such men as Governor Jewell of Connecticut,
who will only consent to the removal of
Cameron upon the refusal of .Senator Conk
ling and other Grant leaders to promise not
tJ seek to enforce the unit rule in the pre
liminary organization. If that pledge were
given, then Mr. Cameron and Secretary
Keogh were to be left undisturbed. If re
fused, then the conservative men would vote
with the radicals for removal.
THE NATIONAL COMMITTEE— KE[*OnTE]> C0N
Chicago, June Ist. — An adjournment of
the National Committee has been taken until
2 l*. H. It is reported that Conkli Logan
and Cameron" met the committee and con
ceded everything the anti-Grant men de
manded. W. K. Chandler had been selected
by the opposition to take Cameron's place.
It now remains to be seen what will be done
since the concession made by the Senators.
Members of the committee say that in the
meeting proper no vote, not even one that
may be considered as indicating the relative
strength, lias yet been taken.
THE MASSACHUSETTS AMD OHIO DELEGATIONS.
CHICAGO, June Ist. — It having been an
nounced that Massachusetts would case
twenty votes on the first ballot for Sherman, I
that being Edmund's strength, Judge Hoar j
was seen as to the correctness of the state* I
ment. He said they would give their first I
vote to Edmund.*., as instructed, and after
that to Sherman.
The Blame vote in the Ohio delegation
numbers nine, and Mackof, of the Sandusky
-jitter, says they will vote on the first bal
lot for Blame.
MEETING OF UNION' VET-BASS.
Chicago, June Ist.— Union Veterans
met at Haverly's Theatre this morning in the
interest of the candidacy of General Grant.
General Stewart L. Woodford was marie
Chairman, and several rouging speeches were
made. Lieutenant-General Sheridan was
loudly called for, but only bowed and made
no speech. Resolutions were adopted declar
ing in favor of the principles of the Republi
can party, demanding equal rights and pro
tection of Republicans in the South, and
that General Grant was the choice of the
meeting for the Presidency. The latter reso
lution met with strong opposition, Boutelle
of Maine. Congressman Burroughs andothers
opposing it as unwise and tending to divide
the Republican party. The vote was close,
but the Chairman decided it was carried amid
cries of " No," " No."
FOR AND AGAINST THE UNIT RULE.
Chicago, June Ist.— To-night at least
twenty-three Pennsylvania delegates will
publish their determination to oppose Grant's
nomination, despite the unit rule. :
Conkling made a lo ig speech in the New
York delegation, supporting the unit rule,
and carried a resolution directing him to cast
the seventy votes solid for Qrant, despite the
protest of twenty-three delegates who voted
against the resolution and will so vote in the
Convention, to which the whole question will
PACIFIC COAST DELEGATION.
The Pacific coast . delegates, including
Washington aid Wyoming Territories, have
consolidated for united action on the Chinese
question. They still stand solid for Blame,
and have strong hopes of his nomination.

Chicago, June Ist.— National Com
mittee reconvened at 2:30 P. _ . and adjourned
after a two-hours' session . A member of the
committee says that the conclusions reached
were that , Cameron should remain Chairman
of the committee ; that the regular delegates
from Louisiana, Kansas. Utah and Illinois,
should be admitted to the temporary organi
zation ; . that the contests in these States
should be submitted to the Committee on
Credentials, and that the unit rule should be
enforced or not, at the pleasure of the Con
vention ; that Conkling, Logan and Cameron
have pledged themselves to interfere in no
way in regard to the action of the Conven
tion on the unit rule.
:; Tbe committee have decided to distribute
the tickets at 9:30 to-morrow morning. ;
CONKI-INC AND THE NEW TORK "KICKERS."
Chicago, June Ist.— The New York dele
gation had a long and stormy session to-day
over the unit-rule question. Conkling insisted
that the State would vote as a unit, and re
fused to believe in the . authenticity of the
signatures to the manifesto mentioned in last
night's dispatches until personally assured by
the various signers that they had actually
signed it. He made personal appeals to the
so-called "kickers," with the exception of
four, whom he warmly accused of perfidy,
and who responded as warmly in their own
defense. Finally, — Iter a four-bear session,
a vote was taken on the question of sustain
ing the unit rule, and stood 45 for to 23
against ; not voting, 2.
BLAINE'S VOTES STILL INCREASING.
Chicago, June Ist. — There is little change
in the situation to-night, except that Blame's
promised vote on the first ballot is believed
to be already largely increased, and many
accessions to Washburne are promised condi
tionally if Blame's nomination should- fail.
Grant's vote has been so much diminished
that it is believed ho would be withdrawn al
ready except for the conviction that tire
Grant manage— l cannot hold the vote t9
--; gether to any considerable degree in such an
• event. The Edmunds vote is also increasing,
but hardly sufficiently yet to justify much
hope of success. While your reporter does
not share the extreme confidence in Blame's
Elimination, his forces remain wonderfully
compact, and their bold, earnest and enthu
siastic spirit and perfect organisation give
them great promise of victory unless some
new and unexpected element enters the can
DANGER OK DISRUPTION DISPELLED.
Don Cameron's retreat from yesterday's
position in the National Committee, under
the advice of Senator Jones and others, has
avoided all danger of the disruption of the
Convention. The committee agreed unani
mously to accept Hoar for temporary Chair
man of the Convention, and allow all subse
quent controverted questions to be settled in
the house itself. This destroys the unit rule
and takes from Grant about 60 votes in New
York, Pennsylvania and Ohio alone.
The scene of excitement here is indescrib
able. The city is crowded with visitors, and
movement about the great hotels is very dif
ficult for the throngs. '",
LATEST KROM THE KRONT— CURIOSITY' EX
Chicago, June Ist.— movements of
the Grant leaders about the Palmer House
this evening gave rise to much query, and
when Cameron, Conkling, Logan and a large
part of their following assembled in one room
at 10 o'clock to-night the curiosity was re
doubled an.l the activity of correspondents
was largely increased. From facts which
! have leaked out, ii. is now known that the
| Grant managers are much less confident of
! securing his nomination on the first ballot —
in fact, are pretty well convinced that they'
cannot secure it. If they should not, and
should fail to secure an increased vote on the
second ballot, it is stated with much circum
stantiality that the Grant leaders have de
cided to throw the votes which they control —
some 300 to 325 — for Edmonds. The claim is
made that this would nominate Edmunds as
against any other candidate or combination.
The meeting to-night is said to have this ulti
| mate object, although the Grant men still keep
a strong front, and claim they have about 100
votes. It is a common expression on the
street to-night that the second, third and
fourth choice is much more probable to be
the winner than the first choice.
SHERMAN AND THE UNIT RULE.
There was a rumor on the street to-day
that Sherman had withdrawn, but when
traced up proved to have no more foundation
than a telegram which he is said to have sen-;
to a friend, saying, " The unit rule ought to
be beaten." and advising that it be done even ]
if it should sacrifice him. Tlie anti-Grant
men say the rule is now beaten, even if the
vote is taken by States, fjor many of tiro
States have decided to-day to vote against
that rule, despite the fact that a majority of
their number favor General Grant. If the
unit rule is abolished, as it will undoubtedly
be, the opponents of Grant claim that the in
dividual vote would make a majority against
it of over 100.
The Pennsylvania delegation took a vote
on Chairman, and elected Cessna by a vote
of S3 to 21 over Beaver. The 21 votes were
all from the Blame men, and the vote is re
garded as a test of the feeling respecting the
unit rule. A paper similar to that signed by
member of the New York delegation was
circulated to-day among the Pennsylvania
delegation, and received 21 signatures.
To offset the breaks in those two States, the
Grant managers are canvassing among the
Southern delegates, and claim gains. The
(.rant leaders say that if the Illinois contest
ants fail to gain seats, that their chances for
nominating Grant are assured, and that all
danger of defeat v. ill be passed.. Friends of
Sherman and Blame, on the other hand, ex
press equal confidence that they have made
gains other than those in New York and
LOUISIANA IS THE CONVENTION.
The National P. publican Committee, which
met this afternoon, did not decide that
Louisiana should be admitted to the tempo
rary organization. That question is unde
cided. It was not decided that the regular
delegation should lie admitted, as was stated
in an earlier dispatch. They also decided to
admit the regular delegations from Illinois,
I* tali. Kansas and West Virginia.
A NEW CANDIDATE KOR VICE-PRESIDENT. '
Senator P.. K. Bruce was serenaded at the
Palmer House to-night by his colored friends
among the delegates representing all the
Southern States. They were enthusiastic in
their expressions in ' favor of his nomination
as Vice-President. He made a brief speech
from the rotunda of the Palmer House.
George W. Williams, of Cincinnati, re
sponded in his behalf iv an eloquent speech,
full of compliment for the manner in which
Senator Bruce ha.3 represented the colored race
in Congress. There seems to be a determina
tion on the part of the colored delegates to
present the name of Senator Bruce in the
Convention for Vice-President.

GRANT AND BLAINE MEETINGS.
Chicago, June 2d— 12:30 a. m.— The Grant
managers' ;' meeting to-night comprised 327
persons,' of whom '316 were delegates to the
National Convention. They claim . that this
does not represent their strength, 1 although
! they do not claim a nomination on the first
j ballot. .Nothing was said at the meeting of
a compromise, but on the contrary a deter
mination was expressed by the two speakers,
Conkling and Logan, to stand by . General
Grant They spoke confidently, predicting
The Blame delegates also held a caucus.
They set up a claim of 300 on the first
ballot, with a probability of subsequent gains.
Ex-Secretaty Bout well admitted to a re
porter to-night that' his count left General
Grant 10 to 50 short of a majority.

Is THXB- a (,'KNTnii. Sun ?— lVofessor
l'roctor's last achievement as a popular
lecturer on astronomy is to expose and
refute the popular belief that the entire
stellar universe is rotating about a great
central sun.' This notion originated half a
century ago, as a theory, with the great
astronomer Mad ler, who based his opinion
on the observed drift of the stars of the
constellation Taurus, in the direction of the
group known as the Pleiades. ; . Madler ad
vanced the opinion that the star Alcyone
of the Pleiades was the central star of the
stellar universe, about which all the mem
bers of the visible universe of stars were
circulating ; and ' this notion, though : it
never has been accepted by astronomers as
mote than an - ingenious . hypothesis, was
one of those fascinating generalizations
which speedily take strong hold on the
popular imagination, and has cviii found
its way into the text-books. Proctor points
out that the hypothesis has long since been
abandoned by astronomers, for the excel
lent reason that tho only fact on which it
was based the star-drift j toward the Ple
iades—has been completely nullified by the
observation of similar drifts of other star
groups in other directions.

The Semite also agreed to the amendments
offered by Parley directing the Secretary of
War to cause to lie made euch examination
and surveys as may be necessary to devise a
system of works to prevent further injury to
the navigable waters of California from the
debris of the mines, and report to Congress
an estimate of the cost of such works, and
* cause an examination to be made "to deter
mine the work necessaiy to be done and the
cost of the same to improve the channel in
side the bar of Humboldt bay."
Senator Booth to-day submitted an amend
ment, which will lie proposed by him, to the
sundry civil appropriation bill, to increase the
amount for the completion of the Mare Island
dry dock from 876,000 to .sir.o,ooo. He also
introduced a bill for the relief of Captain
John Lafferty, U. S. A., by making the date
of his retirement August 1, lrSTr-i, instead of •
Juno 28, 1878.
Very little interest in legislation is felt at
the Capitol just now, Congressmen of both
parties generally occupying one-half of the
time in discussing the situation at Chicago
and the other half in trying to learn some
thing of what is going on there. The prevalent
impression here this evening is that the third
term movement has lost strength immensely
during the last two days, and the defeat of
the ex-President in the Convention is highly
probable, if not almost certain. Blame's
friends claim that he gains new strength with
every defection from the Grant forces, but the
feeling between the champions of the rival
candidates is so bitter that grave doubts are
expressed by expert politicians of the success
of either of . them. Con id ing's hatred of
Sherman is well known, and the Senator from
New York has said within the last month
that he would not in any contingency assist
Sherman in Xew York. Windom is believed
to be the second choice of the Grant mana
gers for President. Although the name of
the Senator from Minnesota waa originally
mentioned to prevent'the Blame men from
capturing the delegation from that State,
Windom it is thought will be supported
earnestly by Cook — and Logan, if they are
compelled to abandon thei? favorite.

irr.ix the Eye. — At a recent meeting of
the Buffalo Microscopical Club, Dr. Lucien
Howe presented the subject of the undula
tions 01 light aiid their perceptions by the
eye. Brief mention was made of the dif
ferent theories, accounting for the phe
nomena of optics previous to the present
century. The difficulties of this subject
were first solved by Thomas Young, who
satisfactorily explained tj.o undulatury
theory of light. He showed that what we
call light is impression produced upon the
retina by the wave-like motion of the
particles of matter. Subsequently the
lengths of these waves wero measured. It
would take 36,918 waves of red light, or
or 64,031 waves of violet light, placed end
to end, to made an inch. From the speed
of light, which has been measured, it is
proved that at least four hundred and fifty
one millions of millions cf these minute
waves flow into the eye and da** against
the retina in each second. ..Dr. Howe pro
ceeded with a description of the micro
scopical anatomy of the ey?, more particu
larly relating to , the " layer of rods and
cones." These were stated as being in re-:
ality tho terminal [ filaments -of the optic
nerve.' These are * shaken' or acted on by

' Railoah construction ■in the United

has been and is deing in that field. ' The
I Bulletin states that since the first of Sep
tember last and up to the "sth of March,,
I nearly 3,000 miles of new road had been
