Disraeli's Reform Bill.
Mr. Disraeli bus submitted to his ministerial col

consideration and discussed at the next cabinet
council. According to the terms of Mr. Disraeli's
bill, every house-tenant, would obtain tbo suffrage,
and apparently there is no dilTorenoo between it and
tbe bill introduced by Mr. Bright, who demanded
only household suffrage. But Mr. Disraeli couples
bis qualification tor tbe franchise with the condition
of a tnree years' residence, although the majority of
tbe wotkmen who occupy entiie house in Kngland
pay a weekly rent, and are compelled by a frequent
change of emplo) meut to also oiten move to different
neighborhoods Mr. Disraeli's bill will, therefore,
not be accepted by the Liberal party.
PRUSSIA AND RUSSIA.
Tbe Alliance of the Czar with Prussia

From the Paris La Presse, November 1.
The alliance between Russia and Prussia Is new an
accomplished fact. It is not now a question of the
continual Interchange of good office which was
revealed to iignunt Europe, in 1863, by the Extra
dition Cols' "eu oi l'oien of that permanent com.

traditional aft f stussia; it is a question of binding
engagements enWtd into with reterenoe to a special
object, and in anticipation ot events already deter
mined npon.
It Russia, in the execution of her plans In the
East, should meet with any other obstacle than the
Turks, Prussia will range herself on her side. If
any loreign intervention should thwart the work of
assimilation wt'ich Prussia is accomplishing in
Kortht ru Germany, or the already prepared ab
sorption of the minor States south of the Ham,
Prussia ean re'y npon the armed co-operation of
Russia. The two countries have a common
tak to accomplish the destruction oi the Polish
nationality. It was Prussia which conceived the
idea ol the dismemberment of Poland, which pre
pared its execution, which precipitated its ac
complishment, and which hag assu edly had a
lion's share oi the spoils. United by their com-
filiolty in thi crime, Prussia and Russia are now
shoring with common zeal to effaoe the lost
ti ace of tbe Po isb name. While the Cabinet of St.
Petersburg omits nothing in order to Russianize one
portion oi tbe Polish provinces, the Cabinet of
Berlin is engaged in Germanizing others. It has
compelled them, despite all previous engagements,
to enter into the North German Confederation, in
order to destroy tbe last vestiges of their national
existence. The sole obtade to the entire accom
plishment of the design is the strip or Foiaad whlob
has Dieeeived it lungusge, Its religion, and iu cus
toms under the lule ot Austria. It is
not only m the accomplishment of their common

Circular of the New Foreign MluUter on
the Imperial Policy The Dignity of the
Empire to be Maintained.
VlffHl i I n .
,, i," i.-nnniu oeuw, me now
Minister of loreign Affairs, has oddrossed a circular
despatch to the Austrian representative abroad, in
w inch he declares he considers himself to have he
come sepaiatod liom his political antecedents Irom
the day on which, in accordance with the Imperial
will, he becamo an Austrian. In his new position
he says he will bear with him nothing but the testi
mony of tho retard of the deeply honored prince
whom he is conscious ot havinir iorved with zeal
and fidelity. "At the commencement of my new
career, especially," proceeds Baron Beust, "it would
be imputing to me a strange iorgeuuiness ol my
duties to hold mo capable of entering upen them
with any leelings whatever of partiality or Dreju
dice, from which I fuel myselt to bet-entirely free."
The ministoiial circjlar instructs Austrian foreign
representatives to incidenta'ly communicate these
views to the Governments to which they are accre
dited luring any conversations in which the subject
might bo broached. Huron Beust declares in con
clusion that tho Imperial Government will remain
lailhiul to the peaceful conciliatory policy it ha at
all times puisued, but that if the uulortunate issue
of the late war imposes that attitude upon the couu
trv as a necessitv, the same reason renders it. more
than ever a dutv of the Government to zealously
uphold the dignity ot the empire.
HTJNGAEY.
Austrian Project for More Intimate and
Independent Relations.
Vienha, November 18 Kvening. The Vienna
Evening Post, the official gazette, in its evening
edition to-day, contains an article upon Hungary,
which points out tbe necessity tor an immediate re
sumption of negotiations between the Austrian
Government and the Hungarian Diet, tor the treat
ment of affairs common 10 Hunirary and the rest of
the empire. The article eoclaies that tbe proposals
on l hi subject maoe by a committee in common,
form the basis for an understanding so greatly to be
desired. The Post considers it the first duty of the
Government fo communicate its news to the Diot
with the utmost candor, so that the principle recog
nized in the report of tue Committee relative to the
unity ot the empire may, on the resuinotion ot the
negotiations, be consistently adopted by all parties
and practically earned into effect.
SPAIN.
The Coming Coup d'F.tat The Q,ueen
Illnned at the Theatre.
From the Avenir National,
The situation in Spain i becoming bettor defined;
the revolutionist, the demagogue Narvaez(ir is thus
he is called at the Court ), hat Just laid do w n his arms
belore tho triumvirate Meneaes, Claret; Viluma, by
countersigning the three famous decrees ol whlob
all the papers have spoken The youth ot Spain are
aoout to be placed, therefore, entirely in the bonds
ol tbe clervy; the general councils dinatacwKes
provincial es) will be superseded by a bureau of
Government employes; as to the municipal coun
cils (ayuntamientos), their fate is not much better;
the Government will be very auspicious if they
causo it any umbrage henceforth. For the last
two months, M. Narvaez has advanced slowly
along the path of reaction, and has known only
how to employ the old means the state of siege,
the; suppression of the newspaper transportation ;
tbe camarilla is not satisfied; by the intermediary
ot its three leaders, Father Claret, the Queen's con
lessor; Menoses, favorite of the King ; and of Bister
Patrocinal, and Viluma, the camarula drove Nar
vaez into a corner with, this alternative, either to
resign or to acceptthe following programme ; Oibso
lutlon of the ' number of Deputies, reform of the
Constitution, indefinite prorogation of the dictato
rial powers in the hands of the Government,
continuance of the state ot sioee, purification
and augmentation ot the army, immediate
restitution to the Church of its unsold pro
perty. Whatever may be the decision of Nar
vaez, he has hesitated, and he is lost; the
next President ot the Council of Ministers is .VI. do
Vi uwa, lormerly Ambassador of Spain at Paris; he
will have lor bis colleagues M. Pezu a, his Drother-in-law,
lor Publio Instruction; M Calonge, for War;
M. Arrozuela, tor Jus ice ; and M, Nooedal, for Home
Atlairs. These are the gentlemen who are aoout to
undertake, as they say, to re-establish the monarchy
and religion upon their real foundation. At length
wo shall see the Catholic party absolutely master in
a country, tor Queen Isabella seems determined to
place her destiny and that of Spain in Its hands; it
h no longer a more simple reaction against liberal
ideas but a complete restoration of the absolutist
system of Philip II. 'Ihe camarilla is, therefore,
ebout to attempt a grand experiment. No occa
sion was ever more favorable, for the whole Liberal
party is in exile or in prisou. Notwithstanding
this, we do not fear for the future of liberty in
Spain. Let us give the camarilla scope. The
destiny ot the Bourbons must be accomplished
everywhere.
It is customary in Madrid to receive the Queen
with applause when she roues hor appearauoe in
her box at tbe theatre, whilst tho orchestra plays
tho royal march. When a lew evenings ago this air
was being played the audience manifested their dis
approval, and in the end began to hiss, upon which
the Queen rose and quitted the theatre. Phut may
haiten the execution ol the coup d'etat project, of
which weseoke jesterday, and cf wnioh the corres
pondent of the Covrrkr de Bayonne, who will not
be suspected of oonnivanoe with the opposition con
firms tbe existence in the following terms: "Mar
shal Narvaez has adopted a serieskif measures which,
according to information we have received, may be
regarded as the prelude ol a coup d'etat whlob has
been silently prepared by the set who surrounds the
Queen." i

Rowlug Contest Between Stevens and
Ward at Poughkcepsle Stevens Vic
torious. Poc(jHgEEPSiE,Novcmberl4. Toelons-talked-of
aquatic contest between William Stevens, of
Poughkeepsie, and Gilbert Ward, of Cornwall,
both rowing a distance of two-and-a-half miles
up tbe river and return, or live mile grand
total, for a puiso of $500, came off opposite this

THE HEN.
William Stevens is famous in aquatic circles
ny hawng been connected in former years with
the crew of the celebrated four-oured shell
boat Stranyer, which craft was owned in this
citr, and which crew is known all over as hav
ing been connected with the ereat four-oared
race with Pittsburg and New York men.
Stevens to-day weiched ltifl pounds, and ap
peared to be in perfect health. His uniform
was a white shirt, black pantaloons, aud white
nnndkenhiet. in statute he is nearly sis leet
in heicht, broad-shouldered and very mu-xuUr.
Gilbert Ward is the counterpart of bis brother
Josh. He is slenderly built, has very promi
nent features, and carries his hf-ad in that pecu
liar ctvle so noticeable In Josh. To-day he
weighed ICO pounds. His uniform was a red
shirt, dark pantaloons, and white handkerchief,

THE BOATS.
Stevens' boat was built by Shaw, ot Newbnrg,
is 30 feel in leDgth and 15 inches in diameter.
It is named the Wink, and is owned by John
Kosevclt, Esq., of Poughkeepsie.
Ward's boat in entirely new, it never having
been entered in a race belore. It was built by
Shaw, of Newburg, is 30 feet in length and 14
inches in width. A lighter-looking Vessel than
that of Stevens.
The pool-selling commenced at noon, Stevens
at first being the favorite, then Ward. Out
siders seemed to be a little chary of their stamps,
some of them asserting their belief that the
affair was a "put-up" thing. We but do justice
to the backers ol tbe roen when we state that
tbey t-oleranlv avow that such was not the case.
A large number of pools were sold, although
the sums invested were comparatively small.
The persons in attendance numbered perhaps
three hundred, Including a few scattered along
the decks, some of them being from Newburg,
Cold Spring, and other points along the Hudson,
while a small delegation was also present iro a
New York. It was the smallest attendance at
any race this season; resulting, perhaps, on ac
count of the extreme lateness of the season.
The surtace of the river was as smooth as a
pane of glass, and all anticipated a nee race,
and were nut disappointed.
The Judges were Homer Worden and Isaac H.
Wood for Stevens, and SL Wiseman and A. J.
Valentine for Ward. T1J5 reteree was Floyd
Fields. Worden and Wiseman, with the referee
(the latter acting as starter), were located in the
home-boat, while Valentine and Wood wore
acting on the upper slake-boat.
Soon alter 3 o'clock in the afternoon the stake
boats were anchored to their places, the Judges
had assumed their places, and the referee called
for the contestants to put in an appearance.
Ward's boat, with him in it. immediately shot
out irom the north side of Main street pior
w hile lurther up the stream Stevens could be
seen coming down the river rapidly. Ward won
the inside position, next to the stake-boat, and
in a few moments both bouts were in line, ready
lor the word. The scene on the dock at this
time, though not very exciting, was full of in
terest. There was no yelling, no appearance of
rowdyism, but all seemed to be watching with
breathless anxiety lor the word. On the Kal
Rock quite a number of ladies were visible
while on the river numerous small boats met
tie ease.
At precisely twenty minutes past 3 o'clock the
referee gave the word
ao !
Both men bent down to their work with, a
will, the surging jumping motion of their liny
nulls showing plainly tbe amount of muscle
beipg used in their propulsion. Ward pulled a
very rapid stroke, and dashed right away from
Bit vtiis on the start, tho latter pulling a long
stioke, and evidently nursing his powers tojise
them to better advantage on the home stretch.
About one mile up the river, Ward's tremendous
qiitck stroke, noticeable at the start, slacked
oil. Stevens hod not "let up" a hair, and as a
consequence, ho soon got up alongside of his
opponent. Then the contest became very ex
citing. Both men pulled as they never pulled
be:ore, and for fifteen or twenty lengths it was
huid to perceive any difference. Hoon, however
Stevens' superior power of endurance showed"
itself, and when he reached the upper stake
boat, he was all of a length and a half ahead of
bis competitor. ComiBg down the home stretch
they both pulled as well as they could, 8tevens
not making the gap between him and Ward anv
longer. When within quarter of a mile of the
home boat Stevens nerved himself to his work
once more, and making a brllllaut dash, which
was vocllerously cheered, reached the Judges'
boat two and a half lengths ahead, thus winning
tbe race and the purse of $300. having made the
five miles in 38 minutes and 37 seconds. Ward I
did not row up to the Judges' boa', but pulled 1
