Saturday, March 1. and with Mrs, Grant
will be the guest of Secrotary lish until
their departure from the capitai, which
will be early in April. Mr. and Mrs.
Bartoris will take up their residence this
week with Mrs. Louis Dent, in this city
and will remain till May, when they will

he President s secretary, will leave for

e Is now a member. Col. Grant, who
has been in Washington for two win
tore, engaged in makl.g copies of the
records of ten. Sheridan a headquart
er., destroyed in the ChiObago fire will
return to the headquarters of the Lieu.
tenant General at Chicago at once. The
data which he has been acoumnulating
her, not only embrace the entire re
cords of the headquarters, but ofloiolal
material for a full history of Sheridan's
connection with the war. The Presi.
dent will give no levees nor dinners.
The statement that he will give a fare.
well dinner to his Cabinet was entirely
unauthorized. The absence of the
usual presidential levees this winter
has been a subject of comment. It can
be stated that they were abandoned on
account of the excited state of feeling
incident to the political contest between
friends, candidates for the succession,
and that under the ciroumstances it was
thought best not to hold these levees.
The President has no intention at pres.
eat bf taking up his relsidence in this
city. The house which he owns here
was taken by him only to relieve the
parties who had purchased ground from
him, which his own house partly oocu
pied. Before departing for Europe the
President will visit the West. When
the President leaves the Executive Man
sion the public property will, as usual
be placedla custody of the steward ok
the household.
It is presumed that Mr. Hayes will
arrive here shortly after the formal
declaration of his election. After his
inauguration he will be formallx wel.

tive Mansion by the President and his

WAsmnIGTON, Feb. 15.-There isa good
deal of speculation already in respect to
Hayes' Cabinet. The names of Morton
and Evarts are mentioned for Secretary
of State, Bristow for Secretary of the
Treasury, Taft and Matthews for Attor
ney General, Don Cameron for Seore
tary of War, and Alcorn, of Mieissippi,
for some other position. There will be
a bitter fight to keep Bristow out of the
Cabinet, to defeat his confirmation, but
he can be confirmed very easily if nomi
nated. It is doubtful whether Zach
Chandler will be kept in or not. He
has served his purpose, and is no longer
necessary. I think Don Cameron will
certainly continue in office.

A Rlval That May Eventually Dethrone
King Cotton.
[Uy Cable tq N. Y. Herald J
Lownox, Feb. 18.-A remarkable dis.
covery has been made in Egypt by
Signor Giacomo Roust, the Austrian
Coneul Agent at Alexandria. He has
found a 'new cotton plant which is so
wonderfully prolific that it may prove
a dangerous enemy to the American
cotton raising interests. Bignor Russt
has just published an interesting re
port of his discovery. He says that
about two years ago he accidently came
across the new plant on the property
of a Copt in the Menutia district, who
collected the seed and sold it to his
neighbors at twelvefold the price
obtainable for the ordinary kind.
The plant has a long stem, and,
being without branches, much space is
saved. It bears an average of fifty pods
on each bush, while the usual yield of
the plant is about thirty. It yields from
395 to 678 pounds per feddan, thus
doubling the crop. A similar quantity
e~ seed is needede; but the great draw
back in Egypt is that it requires much
more water which necessitates the al
ternating o the crops with grain and
-regetables. In the sea islands of the
Atlantic coast or along the lower Missis
sippi it would prove wonderfully proli
fic. The Herald's correspondent at
Alexandria thinks that the discovery
will create a revolution in the cotton
growing interest of Egypt.

Ilreet of the PItlidelntlal Struggle on
MiUiltlh Polities,
[Oorterpsetenos Oteinnsti Ct ommtnreli, ]
Loobow., Jan, o0.--Of one thing I fool
certain. The centennial presidential
struggle in America has seated the royal
farlly of angland more firmly on its
throne. I have not heard of a IBepub.
Ilcan gathering for six months and if
one were now held the old objeotion
based on flying from llls known to
others unknown, would probably be
modliled by the assertion that the dan.
gers besetting presidential sucoessions
are no longer unknown. The recent
agitations in America could not have
occurred here without political earth
quakes, antrd In Franea universal revolu.
tion must have ensued, But at the
same time there may be noted an in.
creasing resolution that the crown shall
become more and more shadowy as an
element of the oonstitution. This feel.
Ing has found more frequent expres
slon sineo the Queen gaained her new
Indlan title. The publlbation of Theo
dore Martin's Memoir of Prince Albert,
disolosing an attempt to graft on Her
Majesty's reign oertain strong featuree
of nerman imperialism has been fol
lowed by an expression of opinion which
shows oonclusively that no baok ward
stop is to be taken in this direction, but
that the ETnglish motraroh is to be re.
gardod ineruly as a hilsttrioni emblem
of the greatness ntin glory of the .Eng.
lisih name. At, I btrnmntuot recently given

to the personal popularity of the Quen ;
that she is not popular was, indeed,
shown at this bhatiquet, whoren at least
eighteen pore )su kept their seats when
her hOalth was proposed; but It was
due to the feeling that the general ab
stinence of the Queen from political
-altairs, espeolidtly since her consort's
death, has set an example from which
nlone of her sex will be likely to depart.

Shelby (Ky.) Democrat: Twenty ne
groes were engaged nine hours in cut
ting down a large poplar tree on the
premises of Robert Middleton, near
rhelbyrille, last week. The tree was
eight feet in diameter at the butt and
measured twenty-five feet nearly two
inches in circumference. Some idea
may be formed of its immensalty by the
fact that an ordinary man could not

silver lining to the blalck lotld which
oversha-dows their fniture, and they
anxiously waited for that lining to be,
comar visible, but they have as yet failed
to ilsoever it.
Those whose duty it is to keep them
in a good humor mysteriously spoke of
telegrams which had been rectlved
from Washington, from Columbus,
Ohio, and from other places; but when
asked the contents of these dispatothes,
they simply shook their heads anmi
looked exceedingly wise. They failed
to satisfy the anxious inquirers, and in
o insequonce, their efforte to raise Ihe
spirits of the crowd were unsuccessful.
When the decision of the Commission
on the Louisiana case became known
in this city, Packard warrants jumped
up to high figures, and quite a num.
bur of hoiders, expecting another rise,
refulsed to sell even at that lrinen. +On
the receipt of the Information that the
present national administration would
not interfere in the affisra of this State,
they dropped as suddenly as they had
gone upl. and are still falllqg, and now
the confldent holders who would not
sell are very unhrappy.

A little "diffliculty" occurred yester
day, about two o'clock in the afternoon,
on St. Charles street, between two indi
viduils, during which one of the com
batants drove his fist through a pane of
glass in a neighboring show window
and cut his arm fearfully. The light
was a bloody draw.
The "bustling" surroundings attri
buted to the leading part in "Article
47," which was referred to in yester
day's DEaOCtnAT as the selection of Miss
Wilmot for her benefit lna Friday, was
one of those indiscltions which
pilnters will commit on rare occasions.

Father Morumus, the distinguished

unity and of the temporal power of
the Popes." The entertainment will
be under the patronage of leading
ladies of this city of the Catholic faith.
In the .House of Representatives an
important bill was passed yesterday,
which, it is understo6d, the Senate
acted upon immediately. This bill
prohibits any parochial or municipal
official in the State to issue any evi
dences of indebtedness whatsoever, ex
cept against moneys actually in the
treasury of the parish or corporate
town or city. Jury warrants and war
rants to witnesses summbned in the
courts are alone excepted.
The House of Representatives have
encountered an elephant in House bill
No. 54, relative to the mode of collecting
the revenues of the State. The bill con
tains between one hundred and twenty
and one hundred and thirty sections,
sixty-four of which only have been
agreed upon after several days of hard
assiduous work. When the bill comes
up daily as the special order, members
are requested to leave their hats in the
hall, before leaving the hall to go and
get their lunch.
A New Orleans correspondent of the
New York Tribaue, evidently with any
thing but a fair motive, takes particu
lar care to say that the examination by
Judge Staes of Weldon, the fabricated
assassin of Packard, took place before
"several reporters." It is asserted
without fear of cavil that neither the
German Gazette, Picayune, Bee or)DZM
ocsaT were represented on that solemn
occasion. As far as 'could be ascer
tained at the timb the reporter of the
New Orleanas tne was the. only onen
