Hip Emperor received at ll this morning a
deputation from the Berlin Town Council, with

Krui nss aros present. The Mnyor presented nn
addison, but the* Emperor was not allowed to speak
in reply. 'Ihe Interview lasted fifteen minutes.
The Dowager Empress goes to-night, to visit her
sun. Prussian custom forbids tin's. 8he should
not leave before the funeral the palace whe-ro the
Emperor died. This nice custom courtesies to the
preocnl circiimstmiees.
The two proclamations published yesterday are
heartily approved hy the general public. The Op
|iosition press Joined with thc official press In ap?
pia use. 'lhere arc, however, many guesses respect.
ini-r the real siguilic-unee of certain passages. It
has always becnluppos'd lhat the present Kaiser
when he came to the throne would grant, a more
liberal constitution, and enlarge, especially, Pnr
li.-uiia'tit-iry freedom and powers. This pmehima
tion, while Bf Beguiling the rights of Parliament,
embodies no explicit promise. Ncr is Prince llis
marek supposed to be ready to consent to any In
im.atie.n such as the expulsion of existiug legis?
lative privileges.
Prince Bismarck, think Germans whom I meet,
is not less powerful tod uv than last week. No
sign appears anywhere that his authority has
diminished. Nobody believes that his ir.fluenco
with the present Emperor is less than with the
late Emperor. Thc KOOgBitloB by Frederick III
of I'rince Hi-marck's services and position ls, say
li.ise who ought to know, a perfectly German,
ipantaneBns declaration. The personal relations
between unprroi and Chancellor are entirely
eordial. No radian! change In the German policy,
either fe.reign or domestic, u. belie.ed likely to
00801 at present. The hading Opposition paper,
the " Tag'-blatt," publishes this evening an elab?
orate article putting a rather radical construction
on what the EmjK ror says of Parliamentary rights,
but nowhere is any hostile \ iew taken.
What the Emperor says of religious equality is
hailed as minouneing the end of the Judenhentze.
No Court favor will support Herr Stoccker In tiny
future crusade.
The publication, at such an early date, of the
correspondence between Prince llismarck and
Count Kalnoky is here thought unusual and sig?
nificant. The exceeding cordiality of Count Kal
noky's aaow*| Strikes 1 "russians as not less re?
markable. The whole Ine'idpnt i.s onp more proof
that the closeness of the political and personal
relations between Austria und Germany is no way
affected by the Emperor's death. O. w. ts.

When tho New-Yorker gazert oub of his window
on Monday morning and sow something of a
storm: when he guy ly sallied forth sud thee
hied him Kimo nftcr being tossed about lileo ii
ploco of popes In a whirlwind und after scrvina
ns a silhouette in several slain*-*- in various snow
drifts, lie admitted that ho had got a new expo
rienco. But ho was equally sure that, he bsd thl
last of it. Ile had, rend a good deal about tin
blizzard and ho was nwnro th.it tho strange
monster plajed fast and loose in Dakota; and otlici
Western wilds; but ho was equally suro that one
day in New-York would be all tho blizzard would
dare to squander. At least he hoped so. Cou
scquently tho Now-Yorkor went to bcd on Monday
night a good deal shaken up but conscious of tho
Kii*aeriority of New-York over tho rest of creation
when backed up by tho blizzard.
LACOBlXO Hi.ruiii" se was out Of the nniFis.
Yesterday morning the New-Yorker smiled and
said to himself " lia: lia!-* when be rose from his
boil and saw that tho blizzard had BBImlngljr de
parted, leasing hage beano of snow Ib ins wake
and general demoralization. But it was only
when the citizen of the metropolis sallied pioiidly
mid defiantly forth that be " save himself away.''
Ile first lound that the sitrlaee ears were BO*
where, that the surface tracks had been Mothered
by the wiiita tiing breath of tin* blitsatd, that
a solemn hush had fallen on the activity of tbe
city, that lhere was no roar from the "sheels on
[lavement .ind rail; that heavy express wagons,
ponderous mail vehicles, thundering ico*wngons,
tumultuous venders, clattering milk aranon, the
voice of tho ragman, the cr? of the "ow eloso"
fellow, Uk* nish of the Cabmen and the habel ol'
tongo 0 and unmusical BOUndS which make ii sal
tumultuous venders, clattering milk sragraa, tire
Was it the Sabbath Hav.' No, it was Tuesday.
It was no ordinary silence It wus not (he
stillness of the tomb; for hundreds of beings were
going about. Men willi shovels wen: tossing WOW
hither and thither, vehicles were passing by.
There was, in short, a panorama ol' activity on n
seale of momentous quietude. What could lt all
mean? iii cry man l.-lt uncomfortable. Ile
Stretched bia muscles and wont through tho ordi?
nary functions e,f existenee?ai tried to?and yet
tint hine waa ex.ietlv natural. In consequence
iho New-Yorker felt peculiar.
Tho llrst, thermos! salient thing upon earth?
or just above it?which gave tho New Yorker a
natural sensation was the elevated railroad. The
horse cars were stuck in mow drifts or housed
in stables mid the surl.icc track., snowed hope?
lessly under for the day, save for a stretch in
Fourth-ave., bot the elevated road was running.
What B rdief was that, my brethren! Tlio clo
vated r..inl did not seem exactly natural; ita
wheels were stitl iii the blivazrd ; trestle arid its
trucks gave no click-it-a-click response to the
wheels were stiff in the blizzard's breath and its
but. thanh Heaven, the ears were going! Ths
hlizzArd-strlcken New-Yorker piled himself upon
the Elevated road in tens, in hundreds. In droves,
in rc-i'ments. Ile wus tickled to death to lind
that there was such a diing as an elevated road ;
he was ho tickled that he preferred to stand to
sitting. Bless the stars! the Elevated road was
running on every branch and the Vew-Yorker
wns proud to stand it. Ile would never again
look sour when ho had no seat.
ABOUT Ttl)-- f'N'l Y roN'.e-fil.IVO FFATI'1.-"-.
Yet the Elevated road offered e>'w-Yorlt tthout
nil the consolation shu had yesterday. Men rodo
down town to business in the morning and they
lind all the afr of beings who expected to do
sonielh'ng. From noon until 1 o'clock they rodo
back again.
Wall Street men were a study. Some of them
staved at home, 'lliese, if they were " bears,"
had an Idea that the blizzard was s " buH" and
might toss them uncomfortably high. And those
who were " bulls" had a hectlo tear thar, the
blizzard was a " bear" and would Lug them to
Consequently the " bulls" and the "bears" die,
not ge) down town numerously. They stayed
at homo noel let the messenger boj-s declare the
Stock Exchange closed at noon, if Deoessorp. The
grain and produce man did liewkise. and naturally
the cottell broker hud no greater desiro to tempt
the blizzard in his elen. The SBflhanges were us
dead us a door-mat, trio attendance so slim that.
even petroleum refused to IIobv and metal was as
eli ill", steel. The exchangee closed nt noon. No
greater deference to the blizzard could be shown,
for when the * bull" and " bear" cave in together
they are in desperate straits.
Passenger exit from and entranoo into tho city
whs as dead as on Monday; even deader, for no
train with passengers arrived and none departed.
From the (.rand Central Station a force of 800
Italians cleared one track as far as Mott Maven,
and a relief train sent to transfer blockaded
passengers returned without an additional occu?
pant. The passengers had already reached the
city by sleigh and ny elevated trains. Thc snow
was tl fr cen feet, deep over the main tracks above
the tunnel, and against this tho energy of shov?
ellers is to be directed to-day.
The prospects of the Central of New-Jersey,
tho Pennsylvania and the Erie remained unim?
proved yesterday. Unfortunately, tho opprehen
*lon existed among the oflieials of the Ne-w-Jer
>ey roads that cattle had been frozen to death in
llieir freight-ears.
With the lack of passenger transportation wus
united a failure in the receipt and dispatch of the
mails. Tho only relief In this direction to be
hoepd for ls from the shovels of the Italians.
A MILK -.**?'> C 'ir. fAllllfn rna*-*TKV-D
The scarcity of milk and coal In wta-taurants
ind hotels gives a t-iste of the power of thc bliz
-ard. In downtown restaurants there is milk
*nougti for to-day; tomearrow, at present rates,
*offc6 and tea may be had with sugar. The coal
Ripply will la.st a day or two; then, if the bliz?
zard wills it, tea and codee may bo had In tho
leaf with cold water.
The blizzard hus given such a setback to the
litigious fever that jurors were scarce in tho
Court House, aud the noses of lawyers so bluo
that the judegs?who hud issued their own man
Jntuus to the blizzard it* mpor.tryj? adojurned
rase after case until the will of his Honor tho
I'ni/./aid could be ascertained.
Hie elah -oases Brest gloomy. The club roan
realized thal the demon of Dakota glories over
high living and the club man, therefore pOSBod
I he day and the evening unpleasantly.
The schools of the city were closed eorly In the
lay, a few scholars here and there appeared. Hut
the teachers, more cheery, remained almost all at
tome and so the school-house was left abandoned
lor the most of the day.
Even the vessels coming Into port bore testimony
o the inferior character of th" New-York blizzard.
I hey had hud no bad weather until on Sunday
light when they got off Sandy Hook. They then
(truck something worse, than a cyclone.
Th" big wind which isrspt over Brooklyn vester
tav 'norning after the I io- cens-i I to full seriously
battered lbs lofty B,>ire of ?he dOOlOO Avenue
'rsabirtarlan Chnreh, at Cioo)OB?ato. and Mombo*
t., na i it throat med to trill. The wooden Ir.ri.e
i-ork about tbe b.wte of the spire* proper, at the top

The pol oe stretcho I ropes across both CI as* n ri?

ito danger, arid the people on whose houses tho
aire I lire.Honed to fall were wiuned to keep in the
)wer ronan ana At tbe rear, so sb to be out of
auger, lt was not thought that it would do moro
han crush in the roofs if it fell.
City Works Comm ssionor Adam* had the candi
10a of tba dangerous spire looked into and such
leos Ukea as wore necessary to prevent, damage
as far a* possible if it sh mid fail. The Iron sn?
ports held it securely, however, sud when the wind
abates it will be taken down. It was btnlt about
eighteen years ago and has long been a crispiouous
object on " Ibo If ill" in Brooklyn. The tower omi
Bptre together nsw tojt height of ISO feet, the apina
being of woad covorcd with slates. Tho church
was bnilt for the Kev. Dr. Duryea, now of Boston,
and Iir. Cbamberlinns tho present pastor.
Among tha startling questions which tbe big
blizzard has blown into unpleasant orou.ir.euco io
tho serious ono relating to tho supplies of meat,
tish, vegetables, milk and coil. Most of tho largo
hotels and restaurants aro SOOBMSOHd to keep
stock, on hand which sro cale ilated to last for a
longer or shorter tiree. Ibo vi ,.!? rn cutting oil of
coinmuiiication with the aunrces of those supplier
has caused gravo iippreheusnnis.
Some of tho hotel-keepers innsc that there 1?- no
danger sd far as their ona establishments are con?
cerned. Tho Fifth Avon no Hotel, for instance,
claims that it is beyond tho reach of tl lamine, no
matter how loug tho stor.n may last. Mr. Dar.
ling's representative said last evening that
their immense ice-houso wan full of al! tho
gooal things necessary fur trie complete running of
the hiiuse ; th it the vaults still contained coal
enough to last until tho lr ii of July, and that them
was on hand a ten days' supply of milk and cream.
Tho Hollman Homo aile jed similar? advantages and
Mr. Peacock: defiantly asserted tiat if anything
gave out there was tnone>y te) buy more BS matter
what it might cost. This pleasing eoadltiofl of on*
tiuiisin did not prevail at all the hotels. At tha
Ij'ilsey, tho Victoria, tlio Sf. Jame*, the Itriiuswick,
UM Murray Hil!, the Grand, tho Cvereit. tho
Grand Central, tho Albemarle and the Windi.)*-,
the belief "VSSSSflSMtd that there wns no lmmodi
ate danger of anylhius SSeODt milk rSOBlM short.
The fact is not disguised, iiiwi.vcr, SOywhON that
the continuance of the pre sen i stato of a it'.nra for
a week must result in iMOStfOM SOOSSgl HMOS
A foretaste of what a mu. famine
will do with tho price of milk noa
already been experienced by lome hoiol
men. "I paid to-day,'' said P. T. Wall, of tho
Hollman House, yesterday, "lifiy cents a quart for
tho last lifty gallons of milk that Ihl man who
supplies me had. When that is gouo I must loo.,
DaloMOMO had plenty of meat and coal, hut the
tish *upply is precarious and the milk will not las!
during tue dav. Iho brunswick's cou,ii) ri received
Milli, lent additions ou Monday, hut tue milk BOBS
wero empty last evening amt "condensed " was thc
"iiir variety which appealed u.iou tho tables. I hs
propnetorof the largo Dairy Kitchen in L'iuoq
.-(?tiaro said last evening t
"1 have just throe cans of milk loft. That will
hardly last us throngh to-morrow, aud I under
stand tho stock of fresh condense, mille, is getting
low. lt is not pleasant to nuuk nt coming down to
condensed in cans, but I am afraid that is oil wa
will have hero after twenty-four boura.''
Mr. Haynor. the steward of the Gilsey House, re?
ceived a telegram from Ne av bu ig last evening tell?
ing him that there was uo hope of ibe milk trains
moving. "Our supply on hand is not enough
to got us over to-morrow," ho said. Unless tho
blockade on tho railroads winch bring in New*
York's milk supply eau be raised almost fabulous
prices will coon ba. paid within twenty-lour hours.
A week longer, or perhaps les., lime-, will put tho
meat, poultry and vegetable markets lu a similar
siaie. Washington JJ.iket bas not a week's stock
on baud and Iho abtttoirsand o-ittle y..r.l* in and
about (his city will scaicely hold out longer. No|
to bo surprised by an immediate scarcity th* pro
piieiots of tho Sf. James Hotel yesterday bought

o il.e h te,. Iho ouly dati.er regarding coal if
iii.- (1.ni. uliy iu moving it iu tho present condition
of the streets, lhere is plemy of coal.
Some of the proprietors and managers of eating
houses downtown boldly assert that their busiuea
will go on. no matter what hapuens, while otherl
with moro oandor perhaps, if less in ld.
ness, admit that if there is not a speedy*
chango in tho aspect of affairs they will
have to turu tho hungry from their doors
unsatistled. Nobody expects to havo any milk
after tonight?many have none already -and with,
regard to other nm visions there aro almost as many
dirt-rent conditions and prospects as lhere are res
i au rn ti ts. lint this is not sil and jxrhaiis it is not
the worst: almost all are in fear of a failure iu tua
supply of coal.
There is a good deal of coal in the city, sod
"only across the channel " ibero is all that could
be desired, but the difficulty is to deliver it tn .New
York, lt takes four horses to pull a ton through
the cro-8 streets from the North Uiver, and st*
tempts to get lt from the piers at ail were
often totui failures. In some esses people
hired men to carry lt tu Backs,
low, whicb it wonld seem ought to be abundant
eiinugh at this season, w_s also hard to get from
the same cause.
I ho Astor House received coal bv tim " back and
sack " method, after the carl* with winch it was
attempted to bring it were hopelessly stuck in tba
snow. Ihe supply on hand was not enough to last
thronsh the night, but there vaa wood ennngri ta
last twenty-four hours. 1 here was only condensed
