BEILrN, June 2(1. - The more that is learned
of the proceedings of the congress yesterday
the graver the situation a.)ppears. According
to the latest accounts, there was nl(much heat
of temper, and at one moment there was
danger of a hostile disruptioln.
The agreement to adnmit the Greek repre
sentative only during the dliscussion of ques
tions itrectly aflecting r(;rce was consented
to with contemptuous indilTerence even by the
Turkish membtesrs. "Let him come In, if he
likes," said Muhemet, Ali; "he can talk; we
can say anything or nothing; then he can go
The great diffilulty of the dlay arose upon
Bismarck's proosition that the British fleet
and the Russian army should simultaneously
retire from the neighbolrhotds of Constattl
nople. The Marquis of Salisbury declardl,
with some veheimence,, that England's Inter
aest would not permit her to withdraw, and
Count Scbouvaloff said quite coldly that Rus
sia must and would be carfiul to hold what
she had gained at the price of so many pre
caous lives until she saw clearly what her
reoompense was to bie.
The French and Italian members of the
congress here interfered, and urged thim m
portance of concession. The Russian dele
gates replied that they were not impowered
by their Imperial muster to sacriflce what
had been galned by the blood of his subjects,
and that he only could do this.
It was then suggested thiit he should be
communlcated with, and M. Douberell set out
at once for St. Petersburg on this mission.
TURKISH PROTEr4T A(A INT'r DISMEMBERIMENT.
The Ottoman members of'the congress
have presented a large number of memnorials
from Christians, the subijets of the Sultan,
praying that they may be left under his rule
and protesting in the strongest terms against
being handed over to Russia, Bulgaria or
The position of the Ottoman delegates is
that the (dismemiberment of the Turkish gov
ernment Is neither n(ressary nor practicable
in the interests o(f peace.. No dlismembrment
is possible which will not excite jealousy on
the one side or dlisaffTictlon on the other. 'fur
key is ready to accept the reforms prescribed
e for her by the conference at Constantinople,
and those would be ample.
The treaty of San Stefano was simply ex
torted by the Russians, who at that time held
Turkey by the throat. They have postponed
the stipulations of that treaty, wuiiting for the
meeting of this congress which they looked
forward to with hope and confidence.
Portions of the papers preipared by the
Porte and laid before the congress are con
cocted in extreomly strong and nervous lan
gag. It is declarcil that Turkey is per
f-afy able and honestly willing to protect
and satisfy all legitimate desires of its sub
jects. Caustic reflections upon the hypo
critical declarations of Russia are lnterjected,
and the congress it invited to thirow re
ligious prejudice aside and consider the facts
as they really are.
Then follows an elaborate sketch of the re
forms that are to be carried out. Local gov
ernment ls to be administerled in each district
by mens of a system which appears to be
theoretically perfect. The Vais or governor
of each district is to be appointed by the Sul
tan, as is also his associates. The Vals in the
district where the majority are Mahommed
anta is to be a Mahommedan, and his asso
elate Is to be a Christian. In all districts
where the majority are Christians the Vals is
to be a Christian and his associate a Mahom
The Vals is to have a couniel to assist him,
composed of two moembers from each sandjuk
chosen thereby, and similar councils are ta, ,e
chosen in each village and township to assist
the mayor. There is to be more attention
paid to public edulcation, full liberty of teach
_n enjoyed and schools are to be open to all
The courts of justice are to be organized on
the European plan. 'IThe judges are to hold
their offices for life, or during good behavior,
and any one may be a witness, Jew, Christian
Taxation is to be made as light as possille,
and thelhxol courcils are to have power of
apportioning most of it.
The diseCosure of A ustria's demands by
Count Andrassy was the (n useae of sOrne excite
ment. The proposition that Russia should
occupy Shumla and Varna and that Austria
should march her army into lBosnia and take
possession of it while Russia occupied IBul
garia, excited an earnest protest.
Persuadlng the Czar to Withdraw.
BERLIN, June 20.--M. l)aubreil, Russian

Marlboro. Gen. Butler's reply is: "My ser

rights are on trial before the courts." Gen.
Butler, his friends say, Is straining to get the
support of the working men here, and the
Grevenbackers, who are organizing in a very
svstenmatic manner, and are untiring in their
efforts to establish clubs and make co)nverts,
say that they have reason to believe that +
Butler will be nominated for Governor at
their convention in August and that he will
not decline. Certain n ischieveous Prohibitory

fusal to acknowledge their party in past Cam
paigns, but adhering to tihe Republican
party, are working for the General's nomina
tion by the Prohibitionists, provided Talbot
shotuld be selected to heal the Republican
ticket. The political leaders are settling
down to the belief that Butler means to run
this fall as an independent, and are antici
pating a hot campaign.

POSES TO PAY HiR SHARE OF THE
Correspondence Between Hon. John C.
Brown and Merretary Sherman.
WASHIINOTON. Jlune 20.---The following cor

n12 THEI'TEENTH STREET. NORTIWE.T,.
Washington, 1). C., Jinrie i., 1875. I
Ilon. John hborman. Secretary United States 4
Sir At a late hour to-day my attention
was called to the discussion yesterday in the
Senate of a proposition to pay the expenses of
the cr mrission sent to lcuislana by the
President in the spring of 1877. When I ae
cepted a place on that comrnlission I believed,
as I now do, that the President had un
dloubtedlly authority to conistitute it, as well
as to order the payment of its expens)es,
which was done by an oflier detailedi from
your department charged with that duty.
Since, however, the Senate by a majority
vote tabling the proposition referred to, hie.
questionle the legality of these disbu'se
Inents, I cannot consent that either yourself
or the banker who furnished the fundshould
ste chargeable with such: portion of the
ancount as was exspendedl on my account, andul
therefore inclose a sight draft on New York
for $827 63, which embraces the two items of 9
traveling expenses for myself and one-fifth of
the general account. If you will have the in
terest ac'(ount rMdle up I will most cheerfully
remit that also, as well as any addlitional
amount that may appear proper for nme to
I amL, sir, very respectfully, your obedlient
servant, J4OHN C. BIiowN.
WA.soIN'TONu, Jlunei 20, 1575.
To lion John C Brown. Washington, D. C.:
Your letter of the eighteenth instant, in
closing a chtlek payable to nly order for
$827 6Jie,bleig one-lifth part of the money ex
pended for the expenses of the cor mission
sent to Loulsiana by the President in the
spring of 1877, is received. I am directed by
the President to return this draft to you Ilnl
collected, as hie is of the opinion that cion
gross will yet mrake provision for this exlpen
diture, and at all events that you ought not
to pay any part of it.
As you know, the Presldent was called upon
in April, 1877, in the exercise of a high consti
tuti ,ntal duty, and in an emergency when two
rival State goverrnments were arrayed against
each other inl open armed hostility, threaten
ing at any rnlmoment the public peace, to send
to Louisiana a comrnmrission of live distin
gillished citizrens, of whom you were one, uniider
written instructions not only to aid hirn by
reliable informa'lon, but to prevent by their
presence aind i fluence actual collision and
This duty 'ou and the other members of
the corrlmission voluntarily assumed and
faithfully performed. In the absence of an
apjpropriation of public money available for
the expenlses of the commission, the then As
sistant Secretary of the Treasury invited
from the First National Bank of New York a
loan of thte suln needed, and it was cheerfully
granted and the money was expended under
your direction. It was not doubted but that
Congress would, as in innumerable similar
cases of the exercise of a legal power by an
executive oflicer, reimburse the money then
expended for an obeject unforeseen when Con
gress was in se-ssion.
In this ease I have assurances from Sena
tors that the money would probably have
been appropriated, tbut that the am-endment
proposed was at so late a period of the ses
sion as to delay and endanger the passage of
one of the leading appropriation bills. I can
not doubt hut Congress at its next session,whien
this subject will be again presented, will make
the necessary appropriation; but if it does
not, the President will feel it his duty to con
tribute from his own means this important
exlpenditure for the public service, without
permitting you to reimburse any portion of it.

For several days -rowds of visitors from C(an

night at the hotels and on the streets were
very much like those presented at the State
convention. The pool roioms were crowded,
andl great interest was manifestld.
In betting, the odds all along have been in
favor of Hanlon. The largest crowd assem
bled at Monongahela House, where pools sold
at about $100) to $so in favor of Morris, while
some private bets were ma.e at the rate of
$1000 to $S0. It Is estimated that there are
$40,100 up at the Monongahela House. At
the course there was an unexpectedly large
erowd. The weather is flne, with a slight
breeze, but not enough to materially roughen
the water. Both men were in ine form.
At 6 o,'clock the men were in position, and
nine minutes later the word was given, when
each shot off like an arrow, Hanlon being
slightly in the lead, which he mnaintained to

Morris. Hanlon then increased his speed,

A Resume of What the Present Congrens
Has Done and What It Hans B
(New York fI"ralld.i
WASHINGTON. .JUne 17.-This Congregs,
which has been in almost constant session l
since the fifteenth of last October (eight 8
months), has, according to the saying of Sen
ator Bayard, done less goo.i and less harm .
than many persons expected. In fact, one of P,
its chief merits is that it has done very little; tl
its sins are mostly sins of omission. Aside it
from the river and harbor bill, it is guilty of o
not a single job, and the lobby has done no
business at all at this long session, for the
river and harbor bill is a job that needs no
lobby. It is prepared in the committee of the
two houses to force a two-thirds vote by giving s1
a sliceof public plunder to more than two- ft
thirds of the districts and States. This gen- g,
eral "divide" is larger in amount this year
than for many years esfore. The House fixed G
it at $7,()0,(Xt), the Senate increased It more Hi
than $1,0(f ,'()5, and in spite of the opposition
of the Speaker arid several members- Messrs.
Cox, of New York, and Eden, of Illinois, and
others -it was adopted. 0
WHAT HAS BiEEN IDNE.
The only important legislation has been
that on the currency. The remoneti'ation of
silver and the prohibition to decrease the
grteenback circulatlon, with min(or measures o
of less coInsequll..ce, make ius a paper money e;
nation with our paper bas.l on silver of less a
value, which noIIxly wants. The House has ti
to prepare its business about forty ('ommit- $
tees, and the best way to show what it has b
done and not done is to run over the list of S

five contested cases over to the next ssseion,

The Committee on Military Affairs brought
in a bill to rI.,rgarniza ti,. arny, founded on,
the theory of (nring a mad dog- to cut off his I
tail close up behind his ears; but this bill,
being reported, was never heard of again, and
Mr. Hewitt's more intelligent measure for thes
same end shared the fate of the banking bil l,
and the army is left to a cxommirssion to report c
to the next se'ssion--the wisest course.
The Corn rnittee on I'atents considered some
import.lint and needed reforms in the patent
laws, but produced nothing.
The nunmerous inve.-tigating (pmmittees
made very few and unirmportant discoveries, ,
and that is all. a
When the failure Iof important measures is
con.sidered we find that the tariff bill is dead ;
the transfer of the Indians to the War I)e
partmnent failed, partly because the measure,
as it camre frorn the Hiouse, was so crude as to E
hb imr practicable, and partly behause Sena
tors, t hough they may hatbe ,'ecrletary Sehurz,
love patronage, and were reluctant to give up
the power to confirm and to influence the I
nomination of Indian agents. Various jobs
and subsidies failed, and it must be said for
the House that, like its Speaker, it was in the 1
main honest, ard hated jobs. I
The corin misscm,n to improve the Mississippl i
river failed, aind no measures looking to a per
inarnrnt reformi of the (civil service, or to ex
temlnding the presidential term and making
him inligible to re-election, or for reforming
the rnmethod of electing a President or cseunt
ing the vote, were considered.
