A Communication From Her Majesty's Government. THE NATIOXAX CAPITAIi. The Electoral Count Wanted, a Demo cratic Policy Bourbon. Putting Their Heads Together. Washtnoton, Dec. 10. large amount of private caucussing has occurred on the Dem ocratic side of the House to-day. The action of the Republican joint caucus last evening in deciding to oppose by filibustering tactics if necesssary the passage of the Morgan joint rule has made it necessary for the Democrats to agree upon some policy regarding the f u ture of the measure. It may be necessary to call a caucus to consider the matter, but sev eral of the leaders said to-day they hoped to be able to come to an understanding without going into caucus. The question which con fronts the majority in the House is whether the minority shall be allowed to shape the course of legislation by dictating terms to the majority, or to insist on the right pf the will of the majority to rule even if important public business has to be neglected. There is a aiaerence 01 opinion among the Demo- crats as to the proper course to be pursued under the circumstances. Some advocate the immediate acceptance - of the challenge thrown down by the Republicans and declare tneir willingness to light over the resolution until tne 4th of March, even if by so dome not a single appropriation is made. There is anotner. ana an apparently lareer number wno advise mat tne resolution be laid over from time to time temporarily while the ap propriation and refunding bills are considered, but that it be brought up and pressed at every spare opportunity. Others recommend that the resolution belaid aside forever immediately and the regular work of the session be transacted with all ex pedition. If the resolution is dropped it will unaouoceaiy De oecause the Democrats know that no immediate necessity for its adoption exists, as mere can De no aouot 01 uarnela s election. If the resolution was adopted it would be within the power of the next House of Representatives, which is Republican, to repeal the rule. There may possibly be a few days' filibustering before the resolution is laid aside for any purpose, but Mr. Atkins, chairman of the Committee on Ap propriations, says that he intends to try to pass three appropriation bills next week. The Democrats have seldom been able to count a quorum of their own members since the Forty-sixth Congress met. It is not likely they will have that pleasure this session. Speaker Randall said to-day that he would entertain no proposition likely to delay the appropria tion bills, that as soon as these bills or any one or mem are ready no would use every means in his power to carry them through. The Newfoundland Fisheries A Commu nication From the British Government An Amicable Settlement of the Con troversy. Washington, Dec. 10. The following lot- ter, written by Lord Granville to the United States minister at London on the subject of the Newfoundland fisheries, was given to the press to-night : Fobbign Office, Lohdon, Nov. 27, 1880. To J. R. Lowell, Esq. : - Her Maiestv's government have carefully consid ered the correspondence which has taken place be tween their predecessors and the government of the United States respecting the disturbance which oc curred at Fortune Bay on the 6th of January, 1878, and they have approached this subject with the most earnest desire to arrive at an amicable solution of the differences which have unfortunately arisen between the governments on the oonstruotion of the provis sions of the treaties which "regulate the rights of United States fishermen on the coast of Newfound land. In the first place I desire that there should be no possibility of misconception as to the views enter tained by Her Majesty's government respecting the conduct of the Newfoundland fishermen violently interfering with the United States fishermen and destroying and damag ing some of their nets. Her Majesty's gov ernment have no hesitation in admitting that this proceeding was quite Inexcusable and is mucn to oe regrettea. flo sense or injury to tneir rights, however well founded, could under the cir cumstances JttBtif y the British fishermen in taking the law into their own hands and committing acts of violence. But I will revert bye and bye to this fea ture in the case and will now proceed to the impor tant question raised in this controversy, whether un- . der the treaty of Washington the United States fisher men are bound to observe the fishery regulations of Newfoundland in common with British subjects. Without entering into any lengthy discussion on this . point I feel bound to state that in the opinion of Her Majesty's government tne clause in tne treaty of Washington which provides that the citizens of the United States shall be entitled in common with Brit ish subjects to fish in Newfoundlsnd waters within the limits of British sovereignty means that the American and British fishermen shall fish in these waters upon terms of equality, and not that there ' shall be an exemption of American fishermen irom any reasonable regulations to which British fisher men are subject. Her Majesty's government entirely concur in Mr. Marcy's circular of the 28th of March, 1856. The principle therein laid down appears to them perfectly sound and applicable to the fishery ; provisions of the treaty which Mr. Marcy had in ' view. They cannot therefore admit the accuracy of the opinion expressed in Mr. Evarts' letter to Mr. Welsh of the 28th of September, 1878, that the fishe ry rights of the United States conceded by the treaty of Washington are to be exercised wholly free from tne restraints ana regulations or tne statutes of New foundland, if by that opinion anything inconsistent with Mr. Marcy's principle is really intended. Her Majesty's government, however, fully admit, if any such real statutes could be shown to be inconsistent with the express stipulation or even with the spirit of the treaty, they would not be within the category of those reasonable regulations by which American in common with BritiBh fishermen ought to be bound ; and they observe on the other hand with much satis faction that Mr. fevarts, at tne close or nis letter to Mr. Welsh of the 1st of August, 1879, after expressing regret at the conflict of interest which "the exercise of the treaty privileges enjoyed by the United States ppears to nave developed,'7 expressed nimsejf as fol- ows: There is no intention on the part of this (the Uni- ted States) government that these privileges should be abused and no desire that this full and free enjoyment should harm the colonial fishermen, while the differing interests, na methods of the shore fishery and the vessel fishery make it im possible that the regulations of the one should be en tirely given to the others.'' Yet if the, mutual obligations of the treaty of 1871 are to be maintained by the United States government or that of Her Britanic Majesty.in any efforts to make those relations a matter of reciprocal, convenience and right, a means of preserving the fisheries at their mgnest point ox proauction ana oi conciliating a com munity of interest by a just proportion of the advan tages of profit. Her Majesty's government does not interpret those expressions in any sense derogatory to the sovereign authorfty of Great Britain in the teritorial waters of Newfoundland, by which only reg ulations having the force of law within those waters can be made so. Regarding the proposal they are pleased not only to recognize in it an indication that the desire of Her Majesty's government to arrive at a friendly and speedy settlement of this question is fully reciprocated by the government of the United States, but also to discern in it the basis of a practi cal settlement of the difficulty. 1 have the honor to request that you will inform Mr. Evarts that Her Majesty's government, with a view of avoiding fur ther discussion and future misunderstandings, are quite willing to confer with the government of the United States respecting the establishment of regulations under which the subjects of both parties to the treaty of Washington shall have the full and equal enjoyment of any fishery which under that treaty is to be used in common. The duty of enacting and enforcing such regulations when agreed upon would of course rest with the power of the sov ereignty of the shore and water. In each ease as regards tne claim OT toe urmea pieces nsnennen to compensa tion for injuries and losses which they are alleged to have sustained in consequence of the violent obstruc tion which they encountered from British fishermen at Fortune Bay on the occasion referred to, I have to state that Her Majesty's government are quite willing that they snould be indemnified for any injuries and losses which upon a joint inquiry may be found to have been sustained by them, and in respect of which they are reasonably entitled to compensation. . But on this point I have to observe that what is put for ward by them for loss of fish which had been caught, or which but for the interference of British fisher men might have been caught, by means of strand fish ing, a mode or nanmg to wmcn under tne treaty of TWashington they were not entitled to resort, the pros ecution by tnem or strana nenery neing clearly in ex cess of tneir treaty privileges, ter majesty's govern ment cannot donbt that on farther consideration the United States government will not be disposed to support a claim in respect of the loss of the fish which they baa caugns or mignt nave caugnt by tnat process. 1 have tne honor to be, etc, etc. American Industries Publication . or Consular Report Am ESort to Subsi dise American Steamer Idnea General Terry to be Appointed to West Point Nicaragua's Grant For am Interocean- ic Canal Other natters. Washington, Dec. 10. The second num ber of the reports from our consuls on the commerce, manufactures and trade of the United States in their consular departments has just been issued by the Department of State. It is a pamphlet of two hundred pages and contains about fifty reports. " Among the principal subjects treated therein are the fol lowing; Commerce of Madagascar ; trade of the United States with Mexico, Central and South America ; petroleum deposits of Venezuela ; long and able report on labor in Japan, showing the Bocial and moral con ditions and habits of the Japanese ; Anrerl can trade in Europe and how to increase the same ; American, trade with fiangaiy ; dairy thrift in Denmark; the tobacco monopoly and manufacture in France ; imports at Rou en from the United States ; American goods in Bohemia ; the iron, steel and coal indus tries of Germany ; American joint trade in Liverpool ; American . manufactures in Ire land; the condition of affairs in Ireland, by Consul Brooks of Cork; the North Atlantic Ocean carrying trade and our share therein ; American versus British and Irish bacon and hams ; the railway system of Scotland, an exhaustive report by Consul Robeson of Leith ; British, French and American Bteam shipping; agricultural implements in Eou- mania ; American meat in Russia and the ex tension of American trade in Bussia ; the lo cust egg destroying beetle in Turkey and its transmission to the United States ; American clocks and watches in China ; imitation of American manufactures in Germany ; our trade with Norway; bi-metnllism in Germa ny; American provisions, in Switzerland. Copies of the present number will be for warded by the Department of State to the principal trade journals, chambers of com merce, boards of trade, . agricultural and trade societies of the United States, in the hope that these important reports may be brought to the immediate attention of all those interested in the development of our home industries and our foreign trade. Ac cording to the provisions of- the act of Con gress providing for these publications, the public at large can secure copies at the De partment of State at 25 cents per copy, which merely covers the expense of printing. It is expected and requested by the department that the press of the United States, which has done so much to. foster and develop our foreign trade, will draw the attention of its readers to such of these reports as may be of interest to them. - An attempt will be made at the present session to subsidize lines of American steam ers to run to South American and Brazilian ports. There is not sufficient time before the 4th of March to pass a separate bill for that purpose even if a majority of both Houses was committed to its -support. When the postofflce appropriation bill comes before the House an amendment will be moved from the Committee on Postoffices and Post Boads granting a certain extra compensation to American lines of steamers for carrying mails between the United States and Brazil and ports of the West Indies. The proposed amendment has not yet been promulgated and the amount of pay proposed to be given per mail is not known. The friendsjof the subsidy scheme say there has been a change of sentiment among certain members who have heretofore opposed everything in the shape of public grants to private enterprises. The vast increase within the past twelve months of the number of British ships trading at ports of the United States has opened the eyes of legislators as to the nec essity for improving the American carrying trade. Justice Bradley, it is said, has requested Chief Justice Waite to assign him to the Third Judicial district, embracing the States of Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey, now occupied by Justice Strong. The Chief Justice will make the change as soon as Jus tice Strong's resignation is accepted. It is reported that General Alfred Terry is to be appointed superintendent of the mili tary academy at West Point, and General Miles will succeed Terry in command of the department of Dakota. General Terry is not a graduate of the academy. General Howard will return to his command and settle his business, afterward coining again to Wash ington. It is said that he is booked for an eastern command. A private conference of Gentlemen inter ested in the Interoceanic Canal subject was held at the residence of a gentleman in this city this evening. The object of the meeting was to interchange opinions regarding the feasibility of organizing a company to con struct a canal over the Nicaragua route. It will be remembered that last winter Mr. Menocal, of the navy, obtained leave to visit Nicaragua. He was sent there to represent a number of wealthy and influential citizens who desired to obtain from the Nicaraguan government the concession of a right of way for a ship canal through the Nicaraguan route. He was successful in his mission and obtained a concession. While the fact that the concession had been obtained was made public, the names of the gentlemen to whom the grant had been given were kept secrot. It is now known that among the gentlemen named in tne concession are Admiral Ammen, General E. F. Beale, U. S. Grant, jr., Wil liam R. Garrison of New York, George W. Kiggs, the Washington banker, Howard Pot ter of Brown Bros. & Co., N. Y., William H. Barnum of Connecticut and Edward M. Cly mer of Pennsylvania. General Grant is in terested in the scheme, and if a company is organized he will be made president. The publication of the prospectus of the M. de Lesseps company had caused the Nicaraguan people to move more rapidly in the matter than they had originally intended. While nothing definite was determined at the meet ing to-night, there is every probability that the Nicaraguan company will soon be organ ized and become a powerful rival of the De Lesseps company. Congressman Cox will introduce a bill pro viding for a reapportionment of Representa tives just as soon as General Walker sends the statistics of population to Congress. Re turns of the population from every State in the Union are now in the census office with the exception of one district from Texas and one district from Iowa. Special agents have been sent to each of those districts and their reports will be received here by the 21st inst. Mr. Cox will leave the date in his bill blank to be filled by Congress. He says there is no reason why the apportionment should not be made at the present session He does not an ticipate that the Republicans will begin a sec tional debate on the deprivation of a large portion of the southern population of suf frage, if they do he will answer with statis tics concerning civilized bulldozing in Rhode Island and Massachusetts. FORTY-SIXTH CONGRESS. Washington, Dec. 10. House In the Committee of the AVhole on the private calendar, Mr. Sparks presiding, twelve bills were disposed of and the action ot the committee was subsequently confirmed by the Bouse. This was a-pretty good day's worK when compared witn what was done on private bill days last session, but it need not give all on the calendar a hope of success. There are over a thousand bills on it and there will not be more than nine or ten more private bill days during the session. After the private bills had been disposed of Mr. Blount submitted a motion to adjourn over until monday. several members want ed a sessoin to-morrow for debate only on the electoral count rule, but that required unanimous consent, and it was objected to. It required a majority vote to adjourn over, and those who wanted a session for debate withheld their votes. A roll call, however, compelled the members to vote, and the House, at 4:25 p. m., by a large majority, adjourned until Monday. NEW YORK. John Kelly Routed Mayor Cooper's Nominations Confirmed by the Alder menExcitement Over the Result. New York," Dec. 10. There was a great rush of politicians present to-day at the special meeting of the Board of Aldermen, when .it was expected that Mayor Cooper would send in the nominations within his gift. Only one Alderman, Mr. Keenan, was absent. After a little preliminary sparring among the members a vote was passed, 13 yeas to 8 nays, to have the Mayor's messages read. Several messages from the Mayor were then read, withdrawing the nominations of Allan Campbell for Commissioner of Public Works, of Clifford A. Hand for Police Jus tice, of Lucius J. N. Stark for Dock Com. missioner and of Smith Clift for Excise Com missioner, the several communications being received and placed on file. A flutter of ei citement was then caused by the reading of a communication from the Mayor nominating Allan Campbell for Comptroller in place of John Kelly. An excited debate then took place among the members, who ranged them selves for or against Kelly, according to their political affiliations. Amotion to refer the nomination to the committee on county af fairs was lost by a vote of 12 to 9. It was then moved to confirm the nomination of Allan Campbell. After some debate in which considerable bad blood was manifested, a vote was taken on his confirmation. President Mor ris made a brief speech explanatory of his vote, saying that it mattered little to him when the office was to be given to a Demo crat which Democrat got the office, and he read an editorial from a Republican morning newspaper advocating the retention of Mr. Kelly in the Comptrollership if the office was to be given to a Democrat. . President Morris then voted in the negative. The vote was then taken pn the confirmation of Allan Campbell for the Comptrollership, and this was declared carried by a vote of 13 to 8. A communication was then read from the Mayor nominating Solon B. Smith, a Repub lican, Maurice -J. Power and Hugh Gardner for Police Justices, both of which were con firmed. A Dock Commissioner and Excise Commissioner were then nominated and con firmed, and William C. Whitney was' made Corporation Counsel, and the proceedings of the liveliest session of the Board held for some time came to an end. S ,,- The announcement that the Board of Al dermen had confirmed Mayor Cooper's nomi nation for Comptroller in place of John Kelly caused wild excitement in the city. In a very short time after the news had gone forth there was a large gathering of politi cians at the Astor House. The Tammany ad herents refused to believe it, as they had persuaded Jthemselves that such a result could not be Drought about, and as--they were forced to accept the truth they gawe vent to threats of vengeance upon the anti-Kelly Democrats. - The effect 'was that of satisfac tion. Ex-State Treasurer Mackm said that if it had been accomplished two years ago the Democracy would have not only the Gover nor and the entire State government, but the President of the United States. The Kelly Democrats had little to say, but insisted that the defeat of Kelly did not necessarily de stroy his influence.. Secretary Thompson's Jew Departure, New York, Dec. 10.

Bowie Dash & Co., the old and well-known coffee house, of 166 Pearl street, suspended payment this morn ing. Something of this kind has been ex pected for several days. . Their failure is the direct result of the effect upon the coffee trade of the death of O. G. Kimball, of Bos ton, and the depreciation of coffee. The connection between the firm of O. G. Kim ball & Co. and Bowie Dash & Co. was very intimate. At the office of Bowie Dash k Co. this morning the fact that tne house had suspended payment was admitted, but all in formation on the subject was denied. From other sources it was learned, that the liabili ties amount to $1,400,000. The firm will not make an assignment.

Great Britain. A Terrible Colliery Explosion Eighty- six Miners Killed Harrowing Scenes at the Pit. London, Dec. 10. An explosion which was felt for miles around occurred this morning at the steam coal colliery at Perry Graig, in the southern part of Wales. The colliery in which this last great disaster has taken place adjoins 'Dina's colliery where the nn- recovered bodies of the men killed in the explosion of 1-st January still remain. A terrible state of excitement prevails and all the pathetic and harrowing scenes in separable from such accidents are reported. Four men have thus far been rescued, and from what they were able to tell of the con dition of things in the lower pit it is believed that others may be found alive, but there is no doubt that ninety men who were at work in the upper sections at the time of tne explosion are aeao. xne superintend ent of the colliery and the other officials are doing what they can to reach the scene of disaster in the mine and to comfort the mourning wives, children and friends of the lost miners. Exploration is yet danger ous on account of the gas. Later. It is now ascertained that eighty six of the persons who were in the pit at the time of the explosion are dead. Seven corpses have been brought up thus far, but many others have been discovered and will be raised this evening. THE NEW DOMINION. Vennor's Latest Forecast of the Weather. Montreal, Dec. 10.

The facts as contained in the charges were testified to by Roundsmen Smith andSelleck. Patrolman Jackson, in his own behalf, acknowleged that he had entered his resi dence on different occasions for the purpose nf crettint? a cup of hot coffee, and he did not think he remained as long as stated by the roundsmen. He said he had never Delore been before the Board for any offense and asked for leniency in the case. The Board went into executive session and voted to dismiss Officer Jackson from the force. The officer has heretofore been considered one of the best on the force.
