ME IS BUSILY ENGAGED IN PREPAR ING A REPLY TO POTTER, In Which be Takes Up the Radical Catch words of Revolution and Mextcanlzation. WAsIHTNIfTON, May 18.--Hon. A. IH. Stephens is busily en aged to-night preparing a speech in reply to Ir. Potter, which he pro)oses to deliver in the House to-mtorrow in lieu of a personal answer to many letters received from friends in the South, disclaiming sym p_athy with any effort to unseat l'resident a es, The Houlse, he says, has no more right to Question his title than 'ostmaster General Key has to question the title of any victorious contestant to his seat In this body. The Forty-sixth Congress will have no more right to ignore him and to recognize the de feated contestant, Mr. Tilden, than Mr. Hayes would have to send a file of soldiers to the House of Representatives to unseat a Demo crat whom he might consider to have been wrongfully seated or fraudulently elected. The leaders in this desperate attempt to Mexlcanize our institutions rely confidently upon a solid South to furnish the bulk of the Democratic majority in the next House of Representatives, the Senate being already se cured. Remembering the encouragement whlch the Northern Democrats in I860 and 1861 ex tended to the Southern States to secede, and the manner In which their promises of aid and comfort were fulfilled, can the Southern people afford to join this revolutionary move mnent with the certainty that when the in evitable hour of peril comes, they will again be left unassisted and alone to meet the storm from a North once more united by this at tempt to revive an issue whose settlement was forced by public opinion upon an unwill ing Congress in the dark days of February, 1877 ? When civil war over the disputed election was Imminent and patriots trembled for the safety of Republican institutions, the South ern members of Congress avoided the danger by compelling the completion of the electoral count under the law which both partles in Congress had enacted. But now the repre sentatives from the Southern States, with a very few exceptions, have joined a movement to subvert the results of their former patri otic action, and to remand the country to that anarchy from which, less than two years ago, it was saved by their efforts. -- .: .... . TUHE cCOaKRY SCANDAL-THE BISHOP OFF FOR THE EgAT AGAIN. No Investlgatlon To Be Reld-The Church Authorities Afraid to Prose cute the Matter. DETRorT. May 28.-Bishop McCoskry, late of this diocese, whose departure under a cloud a few weeks ago was so well known to the country, returned Thursday, to the surprise of the entire community. Yesterday, to the second surprise of the entire community, the Bishop left for the East as suddenly as he came. The Episcopal athorlties had had no interview with him duriang his visit, but it is said his second departure for the East was at their suggestion that he 1b 1 better go, and that the church authorities fear to set the in vestigation into his case on foot for fear of revelations which may be lurking in this vicinity, ready to spring to light on demand. Since the publication of the Bishop's alleged misdemeanors, his faithful friends have done their best to shield him, and visited those who accused him with great bitterness, but the probability is that they now see It would be folly to undertake his vindicatinl, and that except as a sad legend of the church history, we shall hear no more of the case. Arrival of Mollte McCarthy For Her Race With Ten Broeck. CINCTNNATT, May 2P.--The great California race mare Mollie McCarthy, will arrive in Louisville this morning from C(hicago, where she has been resting a few days. Mr. J. W. Conley, of New York. who got up the match between Mollie McCarthy and Ten Broeck, reached here yesterday. He says in regard to the challenge from Mr. Jerome to run Barricade against Mollie next October, that Mr. Winters, the owner of the horse, will pay no attention to any challenge until after the race with Ten Broeck. Should she then be in proper condition he will offer.to run her against any horse in the world, the distance to .e four miles and repeat. Mr. Conley also denies the statement that Bud Doble lhas control of the mare; on the contrary, Doble was merely employed to bring her here and place her in the hands of the trainer. Mr. Harper has decided not to take Ten Broeck to St. Louis. He was advised by the most prominent turfmien of this and other States not to do so. Vessels Overdue-Anxiety for Their Safety. NEW YORK.

NEW YORn, May 28.-The ierald says: Mr. Sherman's proposition to importers to discontinue further proceedings in suits brought by them against the government, provided they waive costs, is an excellent one from a treasury po'nt of view, but it is hardly fair, under a recent y renderled decision in a test case. They wi 1 eventually win, and it is only right that they should be indemnified for all their Icsses. American Board of Israelltes--Conditlon of Jews in Bultgarla. NEW YORK. May 2y.--The annual conven tion of the American Board of Israelites was held last night. W. B. Hackenberg, of Phila delphia, presided. The executive committee reported that the condition of the Jews in and around the seat of the Russo-Turkish war was such as to compel thenm to lyv to other and more hospitable places.

Advantages of the Mslsissippl Route for Grain Transportation. INnrANAProLm. Ind., May 25.- The fifth an nual conventi 3n of the National Millers' As sociation met this morning at the Board of Trade rooms. About 250 delegates were pres ent, and others are expected to arrive to night and to-morrow. An address of welcome was made by Mayor Cowen, and respondedl to by President Baine, of St. Louis, who ob served the great increase in attendance on the annual conventions, and adverted to the great advance In the grain interests of the country. He stated that at St. Louis alone there was shipped in 1870 only 6;,000 bushels of wheat via the Mississippi river and New Orleans and in 1877 over 300,000 bushels, the total shipment of grain in 1s77, via New Or leans, being over 4,000,0l00 bushels, and men tioned that the many advantages possessed by the Miisissippi river route will make it an immense factor in the future transportation of the country. He adverted to the steps for promoting milling operations through the efforts of the convention, and hoped that the experiments being conducted at home and abroad would lead to the discovery of the cause of the tqrrible mill explosion. Reports of the secretary and treasurer were read and received. The committee on grading and inspecting, reported that they recommend a committee of three to suggest such rules, grades and system as will prac tically cover the spring wheat product; a like committee to do the same for the product of soft varieties of winter wheat, and a like comn mittee for the same purpose applicable to the products of the hard winter varieties. These three committees to compose the commlttee on grading and inspection, and to re-port to the convention at this meeting if possible. AFTERNOON SESSION. The convention met at 2 p. m. Reports of standing committees were called for. The committee on millers' schools and col leges--Frank A. Chamberlain, of Albany, N. Y. read a paper on the subject. Next the committee on milling machinery and milling methods-Mr. Trow, of Madison, introduced a paper relating to this subject. The president then read an extract from an article on mill patent rights, which was re ferred. Several committees were not prepared to report, and deferred the presentation of re ports till to-morrow. The papers read as stated, occupied nearly the whole afternoon. The committee on Ilnance, composed of one representative from each State, were in structed to report in the morning, and the committee of grand nominations was also instructed to meet this evening and report their action on the reassemblig of the conven tion to-morrow. The patent right question will come up to-morrow, and is likely to prove one of great interest to the convention. Weed Discerns a Revolution In the Pot ter Resolution-Advertlsing Grant. NEW YORK, May 29.-A reporter inter viewed Mr. Titurlow,Weed on the subject of the Potter resolution, and Gen. Grant's chances for the nert Presidency. The veteran pol itician was somewhat cautious about giving his views, but he took a very wide range of the questions. He regards the Potter resolution as a great misfortune, as it may lead to revolution and anarchy in its worst form. lie said the char acter of Potter, which was well known for probity, would add strength to the resolution and make the consequences all more danger ous. The country was not in condition to blear anything that savored of revolutionary excitement, and the Communistic and labor elements were ready at a moment's notice to take advantage of anything that favored their cause. It would be very easy at the pres ent time to light the torch of revolution. Tlhe pa tience of the working classes had been severe ly tried. In fact, their feelings of forbearance had been strained to their utimost tension, andi many.workinginen were unable to earn the necessaries of life. Mr. Weed believed that in case of an eimer gency the first choice of owners and capital Ists for trades would be Grant, but as to his chances for a third election, that would be very difficult to answer. Weed would not be surprised if Tilden was inspiring the Potter movement. lie sajd he had never seen any man who had got the Presidency on the brain who was able to relinquish the idea. Co-Education of White and Colored Chil dren in New York. NEW YoRK, May 28.--The question of abol ishing co)lored schools in the city of New York and throwing the doors of all public schools open to the colored children, which Is now agitating the minds of those in charge of edu cational matters, has caused considerable feel ing among the colored population in New York, as well as among those white citizens whose old time prejudices are not easily ef faced. The question was sprung upon the board at its last meeting, when Commissioner Strand made a sweeping proposition to do away with the colored schools and mix the children of colored with those of white par ents in the educational establishments of this The proposition which, it Is believed, was the result of considerable deliberation on the part of several commissioners, was referred at once to the committee on colored schools for investigation and report, but pending their action the subject has led to the expres sion of many views, on the part of those par ticularly effected by the proposed action. Board Superintendent Kiddie says that the idea is the correct one, in the abstract, at least. It may not be right to agree all at once to every Dart of the proposition, but it is in accordance with law. The Vosburgh Poisoning Case-Mrs. Vos burgih RBelleves Her Husband Inno cent. JERSEY CITY, N. J., May 28.-A reporter had an interview with Mrs. Vosburgh in regard to the terrible accusation against her husband. which will be read with interest.

Though Some Think It MIay Require This Plum to Close the Mouth of Ex-BRe turning Board Attorney Ray. [Soecial to the Demoerat.l WASmNINTON, May 24.-The removal of Lacey having been determined on some time since, IIayes Is greatly concerne(d to know whom to appoint in his place. Albert Leon ard is generally considered as leading in the race for the district attorneyship, though some of Sheldon's friends here protess to have hopes for him. Some say now that Sherman & Co. are to be investigated, it is possibl that John IRay, ex-attorney for the Returning Board, may have to be kept quiet by giving the district attorneyship to him, as it is well known that he possesses the knowledge of the "true in wardness" of the Louisiana crookedness. At any rate, Lacey is bound to go, and that very soon. BUELm,. THE EARLY ADJOURNMENT QIEq TION PRACTICALLY SETFLED-AN ALL SUMMER SESSION PROBABLE. At Least Thirty Days Required to Dilpone of Necessary 1Bills-No lope for the Levee Appropriation Save In a Pro tracted Session. ISpeclal to the Demoerat.l WAS.IINO(ToN, May 28. The I)emocratic caucus to-day dlletded to postpone the consid ,ration of the Senate adjournment resolution until June H. This practically (ldefats the Senate reohlution and leaves the adjournment an open question, to be settled by future events. My own impr.ssion Is that the ses sion will be prolonged till the middle of July or first. of August. In caucus to-day Atkins, chairman of the Appropriations Corunm ,tt.'. Imad, as .tatn(.ent as to the condlition of public business, which left no doubt on the minds of members that it would require thirty days' active legislation to dispose of the bills nec ssary for the, run ning of the government, without, making al lowance for long debates or dilatory tactics. The dlvocates of the levee appropriation have no hope, except in a protracted ss sion, for they would certainly Ie ushelved in the hurry and confusion of the legislative rush, such as always happens when a day near at hand is fixed for adjournment. With a fair chance, after the army bill is disposed of, thelevee bill, as amended b y Roberts. ii. can get through. Mr. Potter thinks his committr, can com plete the bulk of its labors in alsiout thirty days, but of course that is little better than conjecture. The sum total of indications points to an all summer session, with possibly a brief recess about the middle of .July. AMONG THE COMMITFEES. Capt. Eads Before the House Commeree Cm nmittee.

New York Banks Declining to Dlscount Notes of Sugar Refiners. NEw YORK, May 28.-There is much feeling in the sugar trade over the recent decision of s-,me banks to decline to discount the notes of sugar refiners. The president of a well known bank stated to a reporter that it had been apparent for some time that sugar re fliing was not profitable. His bank had de ,lined single name sugar paper, because it was not deemed prudent to risk the bank capital in a business that requlired the ex haustion of its capital to sustain it. He claimed that the refiners are losing from one to two cents a pound on every barrel of sugar manufa,.tured. A few days ago his bank declined two notes of a sugar party for z5.;nrX each. which were subsequently discounted on Wall street at 4;9 per cent. Illinols Diocesan Convention.

BISIMAiRC TilE PEACE-N IHER--WIIAT WILL RE ISUBMITTED TO THE CONGRESS. The Bases of the Agreement Under Which the Arrangements Were Completed. LONDON, May 2R. The most trustworthy informationr that we can obtiain concerning what-b lu i acconlplishled bet weten Count SchouvalofT and Lord Sahlibury, is thus stated : Princeb Iismarck has been the peace maker; Russia and Austria, through his rlleans, have arrived at an understanding; Rlussia only wishedl to ascertain how much of what she cla, imed she would be allowe'd to keep, and was always ready to submit the San Stefano treaty to a congress, but, with the understanding that -she should ressrve the right of refusing to tIs bound by the de cision of the congress. Prince Bismarck deemed that it was Ist, to effect beforehand an understanding as to what the congress would agree upon, and this has been now effected. [The bases of the agree mernt are the provisions formulated by the European powers at Constantinople, with what remains of the treaties of Jt5n; and 1871; the treaty of San Steflano to be taken as the measure of Russia's wishes respecting those points as to which there is no dispute, but. no further; thie provisions of that treaty as re spects 1;ournmanria to be set aside, although what is to take their place is not known out side ot the ripre sentat ivyes of the powers, who may agree upon the outlines of a new treaty. Austria was last. to yield, but she is now satishceil. The members of the congress, Sehouvaloff, Lyons, Andrassy, Iiaymerle and Wadding tor, it is said, are alread y agreed, and prac tically the colngress, will meet only to give formal sanction toprrl,1sermined resolutions. The chagrin of the (Glauistonian or Radical faction in the House of Commons is excessive, and the scene last night, when Lord Harting ton repudiated theni and walked out of the HIouses with the Whig Liberals behind him, was considered as significant iof the total sun daring of the bonds that had hitherto kept the two factions of the Oplposition together. The government now have full s.cl)s. Their popularity is unbounded, and the Opposition can scarcely lie said longer to exist. The leadership of the Radvicals is rejected by ( lal stone, and will probably devolve upon Mr. Chamberlain. Conference Preparations-Russlan Con ce.sions to England.

Andrassy to Explain the Use of Aus trla's War Credit. LONDON, May 2s. --The Austrian and Hun garian delegations meet this evening, when Count Andrassy will submit a written ex planation of the government's motives for availing itself of the .,0(,1),0(? credit. It is expected that he will state that Austria only prepares to take defensive and preventive measures. The treaty of San Stefano contains several articles affecting Austrian interests.
