with isuch a countenance should not havo been arrested at onco when ho intimated so
much anxiety about tho Presidents arrival at tho depot
that ho had not been inconvenienced by
his sudden summons to Washington
Tho Interview busted about twenty
minutes after which tho Vice-President

Tho Vico Presldent was summoned to tho
Wlilto llouso last night on a personal note
from Secretary Blaine It had been de
livered to him by Messrs MaoVcagh and
James Tho occasion of tho hasty sum
mons nt such a Into hour was tho
result of a Cabinet consultation at
which tho exigencies of tho future iu tho
event of tho death of tho President wcro
seriously discussed Tho fact that tho Scn
ato had elected no president tcmiiore and
that tho Houso was without a Speaker was
considered and it was recognized that
should any
Accident Ilefall the Vice President
Tho country would bo in a state of anarchy
A suggestion was mado that tho President
whllo iu possession of his faculties and
strength should bo lnduacd to call a spe
cial session of tho Senate and Htuso im
mediately iu order to provide a
pro tempore and a now speaker This
was not acted upon though as tho members
of tho Cabinet wero
encouraged by Sens bom tho Sck
to hope for the Presidents recovery Tho
next best plan and ilio ono adopted was to
send for General Arthur and with liliu dis
cuss tho wholo situation This Jls why
General Aithur appeared so suddenly at tho
Wlilto Houso last night It is understood
that General Arthur frankly admitted tho
gmvltyof tho situation and expressed him
self perfectly willing to act in harmony
with tho Cabinet

Bol Ingcrsoll to a small knot of nowspapor
correspondents on tho Whlto Houso portico
Tills announced tho appearance of tympa
nitis tho advauco agent of peritonitis from

was recognized as tho approach of tho crisis
and tho recipients of tho sad news turned
sadly away fi oiu tlio door His death is
now only a mutter of time said Col Ingor
soll tears bcdlmming ids eyes God
help tho country Secretary Blaine
who was Just leaving tho Man

you must not think it as bad as that
Secretary Hunt who was just behind Mr
Blaine shook his head sorrowfully remark
ing This is a bad blow indeed but if ho
pulls through to 10 oclock to morrow ho
will recover Mrs Gorilold heard tho an
nouncement of tho examination with por
fect composure never onco complaining
Dr Bliss said sho was tho most heroic
