WAaSHINTON. April lo.--The D'mocratio Senators met In caucus at 10:30 o'clock this morning, and remained in session until 2 o'clock p. m. The question of taking no the BSofford- Kellogg case was the subjict under consideration, and the discussion c stinued with a good deal of animatlin and spirit, Bayard. Lamar. Garland, Kernan and others spooke aganst the present consid.ration of the Kill.gg case. whil SaulabHry Hi. il. Vance and Jonas again insisted that it ought to be brought before the Senate for action without delay. Arguments pro and con were much the sa no as tho'e of yesterday and the day before, ex cept that even more determination was shown to-day by the advocates of immediate action. It was also openly suggested that the propo titlon to unseat Kellogg and seat dpofford could not be adopted because there were Democratic Senators who would vote against it. Mr. Hill said: "Very well, let them vote against it. The rcomrmitree had done its duty, and it now remained for the Eeaate to perform its duty, no matte.r wbat the vote might be." He insisted upon the case being disposed of, and in regard to its possible i ffrct upon the presidential electi ,n. said that ought not to de ter the Senate from dl voslng of the case. Finally a resolution was adopted by a majority of three which proposed that the Geneva award bill shall be taken up first, and shall be consld ered from day to day until dilsosed of. and that then the chairman of the .lection Comi mittee may call up the Kellogg case, unless in the meantime the Democratic caucus should decide otherwise. The can us this morning was not fuldv attended. and it was understood another shall be held before final disposition of the Geneva award bill, to pass finally unon the question of a consideration of the Kellogg case. This was a sort of compromise, and it was ·-onsented to in the hope of bringing about a better feeling on the onuestion than now ex iets. It is the unders anding that the final de cision shall be made by a full vote of all the Democratic Senators if it can be obtained.

April 10. - The Constantino. plie correspondent of the Times tele graphs that "the elections in IEngland have produced on all classes here a profound Impres ion and at the palace almost a panic. Wild speculations are afloat regard ina the consequences of the coming change in the British Ministry. Greeks.Armenians. Bul gartans and Christians generally have long re garded BeiconsflBld as their most powerful opn ponent and rejoice at his fall. The more san guine of them assume that Gladstone will im mediately form a Cabinet and prepare to car ry out his famous 'bag and baggage' policy that is. to turn the Turks out of Europe bag and baggage." The tIultan and his advisers are thoronghly alarmed. We already see one practical result of his fears in the iglnlcg of th' order set tling the Montenegrin question. Thb. Turkish publc as usual. Is Indifferent and apathetic. Lord IHartin.ton's recent declaration that the 1 Liberals would do all in their power to create a European coalition for fompelling Turkey to lutroduce reforms h is produced muca cou ment, and it is ,aid. with truth, that for months past the Porte has been unintenionally doing all it could to create such a coalition. N ,ver before has it shown such arrogant and deflant attitude toward the Dowers. and the conse quenc'e has bhon that we have at this moment the extraordinary phenomenon of ill th,, em bassies and legations working heartily together on several imoortant questions. including the I case of Col. Corr,mersdoff's assassination. Never, since the time of toe Constantinople conference, has so much unanimity been seen in the diplomatic world of the Porte. It is confi s dently expresse.d that the change ii, the minis Sty of England will extend this una'imity to the Greek frontier questiona on which the Porte t has hitherto counted on Britiah support. 1RUNSSI.
