NEW-YORK, SUNDAY, JANUARY 31, 188GI-TWELVK PAGES. PRICE THREE CENTO ? fi!nl>prt r?/-? THE NEWS IN LONDON, MR. GLADSTONE'S EFFORTS TO FORM A CABINET. EKVII W Of Till*. CRISIS?MIlKllAI. DISSENSIONS? CUAHCia OF BOM! RUM. ?m CA11I.E TO T11R TKIHtsr. 1 LonpoN, Jan. 80.?Lord Salisbury's Government have pani tho penalty of their faltering Irish policy. The belief is general that they would ."-till fet in ottos if they had announced in the (Queen's Breech the measures which they announced in tho Homo eta Tuesday. The Liberate "Bade a good use cf the interval. Tarty spirit ran daily higher. Tho Libera! leaden down to Monday WON anxiously routining means to prevent tho carrying of Mr. Collings*! amendment The knowledge thal the Ministry had resolved to produce new Irish meas? ures without waiting foi Mi. Smith's report changed their plans. Then was danger that the House would support the QoTernmeni The feeling about the lawless condition of Ireland waa strong enough to secure a largl vote for tho bill to restore the reign of tow. Ti.e Government, if heaton in thc 1 Ioum-. could appeal to the country as the cham? pions of Imperial unity. They would fall In an endeavor to maintain public order in Inland. ller.ro tho Liberals determined to turn them out on a minor issue. A truce was pitched up between Mr. Gladstone and Mr. Chamberlain. Mr. Collings'! amendment expressed regret that the Queen's Speech promised no relief to the agricultural laborer ami Offend no facilities for acquiring allot? ments and small holdings of lamb 'jins is yarlia mentary language for " three acres and a cow." fha paetaje of the amendment would redeem iu ?nmerable electoral promises and eonflrm Hodge's loyalty to thc Liberal party. Mr. Gladstone has denounced during the campaign similar proposals, hut accepted this. It now became, as Mr. Goschen rcprjachftilly and Mr. Chamberlain exultingly said, part of the authorised Liberal programme. licfore the debate began sir Michael Iheks-l'.each announced that tho Government would on Thurs? day introduce bills to suppress the National League lo atop boycotting; and to protect life and property in Ireland. Ho endeavored vainly to postpone a icc sive vote till those measures should bo before the House. The Liberals refused to loosen their grip on tl)^ Ir enemies' throat. Mr. Gladstone's speech secured tho adhesion of the rank and Bte of the party. Ur. Goechen's croton passed unheeded. Loal Hartington separated himself, perhaps finally, from Mr. Gladstone. Some Liberals veted with him against Mr. Collings'! amendment; many mon abstained from the division ; but tho amendment was carried hy a majority of 7'.'. The ParnellitOB voted lolil against the Government. The v. ti. la theirs. The Ministry promptly rosigued. Lord Balis* bary's journey to Osborne, where the Queen D in remaining, give rise to rumors that she tried to persuade him to stake another attempt to carry on tho Government This is probable enough. Tue Queen's aversion ^to Mr. Gladstone as Ti uno Minis? ter, always Strong, is gnater than ever now that he ?aansjej ottos aa Mr. Parnell's nominee. The Lib? eral papen ar- disposed to complain thal the Queen is straining her Constitutional powers, which is nonsense Every retiring Minister explains to the I rei?n the nason! winch compel hi! r tim. Lord Salisbury doubtless toldheith.it no? body but Mr. Gladstone could form a new Govern? ment I IBKHAl COM rm nc a The summons reached Mr. Gladstone late leal night. It is supposed thatheaees to Osborne to? day. I" tho msaatime hourly consultation! have hoes held for turee days pas! with end among bia lenser colleagues, No ace. mut of what ls pi ins can be anything but conjectural. Certain things an t ik n for granted. It is not believed that Loni Hartington ?:11 join Mr. Gladi Ministry. The open br. a b long postpone 1 between the Whigs and tbs Radicals appears to have ar rived. Mr. Chamberlain a month since had resolved never to acquiesce in Home Rule sad aevei ag to serve uudei Mr. Gladstone: but Having converted the Liberal leader to his ag. an rn policy ami got rid ol the Whigs, the Radical leader is content to re annie his place under the old umbrella Mr. Goschen'* abstention is certain i sir iie:>t\ James's abstention ts probable: Lord Spencer,Mr.Trevel yan, ami I.ord Derby ar- doubtful. The only strong meoihers of the old Cabinet who an certain to jo.n the next Cabinet an Lord Granville, Mi. Chuinbe lain, sir William Harcourt Lord Rose aery, and Sir Charles Dilke, ii the ti ia! next week results favorably. Efforte will be made to enlist the support ofthe Moderat * by avoiding definite proposals for linne rule. Mr. Gladstone like Mr. Disraeli will educate his party and explain to Mr. Par* nell th.it the process of conversion require*; time. Only a lew wicks have elapsed ames the whole country pronounced against home rule, u is hoped that Mr. Parnell, if ha be allowed ? gove*.u Ireland as he likes meanwhile through thc National League, will wait. .\-r; eta ot HOMI RULE. Parnell'sdailj organ in Dublin bas already inti? mated that mme effort taneeessary. With a view to ann Ulai!) English opinion the League Will abstain (et the present from the more enid lofuTas of boyeotttag and prove they can and will do whatever is leeaatary to preserve absolute order. This journal forgets tami each an avowal te regarded in England as an admission of lespousibihty for the existing system of intimidation, its claim that tho right of tin League tortile Ireland is constitutional is uotoI in *iew of constitutional law. tonally humorous from the Irish point of view Is thc New-York dispatch explaining that every? body in America favors home rule for Ireland on apian similar to the relation between the States and the Federal Government. Mr. 1'urucll and ?very leading Home Ruler long since repudiated Home Rule on the American pattern. Tiny insist 00 an independent Irish Legislature with absolute Jurisdiction on most subjects, which the Constitu? te prohibit* to Htato Legislatures. The trntb ta that the Irish .party havo wi, ? great triumph and made a great advance to. **Td separation^ which is their avowed aim : RQt a long^'wad remains to be travelled. Mr. Otodltoue'B Cabinet is yet to be formed; its g*j*Policy ta yet to be adopted; a majority in the House of \ Commons has yet to be secured ; ?I House of Lords and the country yst to he reckoned with. Thc ?? ejuestion still presses for solution. Ko man bru yet propose 1 a workable scheme, either American or otherwise. PoUtieal negotiations be? tween Mr,Gladstone and Mr. Parnell are conducted indirectly. The Irish believe thal an agreement ia Within eight The one thing certain is that no Liberal Ministry eau command emajorit] of the present bouse unless it does Mr. Parnell's bidding. q, w. s. -?> MI?.

Thc captain and pilot wero both on tho bridge, and ipilck as thought they sang out to tho quartermaster at the wheel: " Hard a-starboard." Hut it wns too late, aud JUM as the servut began to iaSWOT her helm she crashed Into tbe starboard quarter Of the Noordland and cut a great v leaped gash lu her turtleback, also starting ber malu deck aft. There were lOOpaeeengen in nil on Hie Noordland, aud great confusion reigned for a tow mo? ments among tue passengers on bo'li ships. Hut lt was only for a few iiioiinnts, for tho Dilkera of beth raeeets MOO saw that there was no serious da inure done, iti.,1 beth swinging apart, tho Hervla preceded down stream wldle a score of ttiL-s surrounded tho Noordlanil and escorted her back to her pier. Then tho passengers who had hastily buckled on Ufo pr. -erv. rs |UMSt of them hind side befnrei took them oft and oalniod themselves.

" If you say that, Mr. lllseock." said Colonel Cham? berlain, -'.miling up, "you say that which ls not true.'' " You called me to your office, Colonel Chamberlain, toad a* your counsel," said Mr. Hlscoek. " I think we have had enough or tills talk," remarked the Justice, " aud tho stenographer may strike out all talk that relates to the Iron works or this subsequent talk."

For th" tl.ree preceding nights. Schaefer has bsd the opening play and has Im? mortalized himself by making ono point out of the three chances.
