World. ENGLAND AND THE POWERS. All Europe Looking Forward to tbe Conference. RELIGION IN SPAIN. [BT CAJBLB TO TBB HEBiLD.] London, Noy. 27,1876. Notwithstanding the fact that an English com missioner Is now en route for Constantinople to arrange and settle this vexed question of the Turk in Europe, the feeling of conQdeuce becomes no stronger. Even now the chances of the failure of the conference are set down as about equal to its success by the most sanguine. Wlieu the members of that august assemblage get their feet nndcr the same table there will be grave doubts whether they will separate on friendly terms The truth is that the burden of tbe diplomatic set. tlement must rest with England anil Russia. The three great empires, Germany, Austria and Russia, might readily settle this question among themselves, possibly, by throwing some sop to Italy. Therefore, England cannot bat be regarded by them aa an outsider. Germany has undoubtedly come to some understanding with Russia in re gard to Roumanla. The same power that put the HohcnzoUcrn prince, Charles, at the head or that State will take care of him Jnst as long as It pays to do so, and no longer. Indeed, there are those who iDslst that the whole question is to be worked out by Russia and Germany at the expense of Austria, but there Beems to be no excuse for lucli au unwarrantable outrage upon one ol the most non-aggressive of the European l'owers, and war, In these days, requires an excuse. Therefore, mtil Austria's course is understood, the coinpen mtlon which Germany is to receive for herlrlendly ,111crest in Roumanla cannot lie foretold. On one point there can be little doubt, however; Germany's satisfaction must come from Austria. Whatever compensation Francis Joseph may receive in return, such as Bosnia or Herzegovina or a part of Servla lie may be thankful for and must accept. If the final hour of the Turk In Europe has come England's Commissioner will insist upon Egypt as Ucr Majesty's share of the spoils in addition to the creation of an independent State, having Constantinople as its capital and havlug its exist tnce guaranteed by the great Powers. As will be leen, the situation is neither pcacetul nor warlike, tt such a state of political uncertainty can be under stood in the United States, where twenty days have failed to disclose how many votes wore oast in three States for the Presidential candidates Bl'SSIA AND BCLOAR1A. The three Russian war vssaels at Naples have sailed trom that port for an unknown destination. Le Temp* (of Paris) says England and Rnssla are agreed as to the character of the guarantees required, a trifling difference only existing on the subject of the occupa tion of Bulgaria ENGLAND'S rOSITION AT THE CONFERENCE. The Marquis of Salisbury is reported to have de clared, In conversation with members ol the diplomatic oorps in Vienna, that England would not appear at the Conference as the opponent In principle of Russia It would depend whether Russia drew up her demands in ? form to guarantee tbe rights ot the Christian subjects In Turkey without destroying the sovereignty of the Porte. He would not regard it as a violation of tbat Sovereignty if tbe Porte were to enter into certain engagements with Europe regarding tbe Porte's sub jects and the Powers were to co-operate in the intro duction of guaranteed reforms. GKRMAXY'S KECTRAMTT. While Russia docs not Interlero with German Inter ests Germany feels morally obliged to support Russia's claims at tho coming conference. Should war be una voidable Germany would not object to tho Invasion of Bulgaria by Russia. iikyond arm's i.kxoth. Hinlineof demarcation between the Turkish and M> nicuegrtn armies is settled.

TROUBLE IN SOUTH CAROLINA ANTICIPATED DUBINO THE WEEK?ALL EMERGENCIES PRO TIDED FOB IN ORDERS TO THE COMMAND INO OFFICER. There Is a promise of (rouble this week In South Carolina. While ibo subject of or ertng troops to Columbia was not directly discussed lu Cabinet day before yesterday, It wus not dwelt npon only because It Is (elt that no necessity exists for giving orders trom Washington for the protection of the legislature at Its moetinc next week. It will be remembered that Pres ident Grant, In his interview with your correspondent on the 12th Inst, said, with rolerence to the alleged im practicability ot Governor Chamberlain's convening the Legislature, that there would be great danger attend ant upon its reassembling. Front this It ia Inferred that tbc administration has long slnoo signified through instructions given to the propor military officers, that the mooting oftho Legislature would doubtless require the protection of the troops. Tho officer In command, fbercforc, will, it Is lurther Inferred, exercise his dis cretion and bo on band to provsnt violence should any be threatened or contemplated. Secretary Chandler saya the troops are atrendy !u South Carolina, and henco thero Is no need ot giving any orders from Washington tor their disposition. Tho commanding officer will comprehend best what the emorgoncy may require. Officers who are in com mand of some of the companies which have just returnod here from South Carolina say that every man, woman and child In South Carolina will resist the inauguration of Governor Chamberlain. Senator Robertson, of South Carolina, who was his quandom friend and supporter, has latterly withdrawn bis adherence trom the causo and official actions of Cbamberlalo, which is said to be In defer ence to the overwhelming conservative opposition to him by the native white citizens of the State. To tins end be has purposely absented himself throughout tho whole of the recent campaign aud remained almost steadily In Washington. THE DIBKCT INTERFERENCE OF THE PRESI DENT REQUESTED BZ GOVERNOR CHAMBER LAIN?DON CAMERON AND GENERAL SHER MAN CAIXED TO A CONSULTATION?DISPOSI TION OF TROOPS IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE GOVERNOR'S BEQUEST. Since the writing ot tho matter above on the aubject of tho altitudo of the Govornor with refcrenco to tho complications In Soutn Carolina tho direct In terference of the President has been solicited by Governor Chamberlain, whose telegraphic request camo st a late hour to-night. The President immediately rent lor Don Cameron, the Secretary ol War, and lor General Sherman and other military advisers of high rank, with whom he was in olose conference at the White House until nearly mid night. He laid before the meeting the tntormntlon and petition received from Sooth Carolina. The con sultation lasted several hoara and resulted in the sending ol Immediate instructions to General Ruger, commanding the troops In South Carolina. One of the gentlemen present characterized the nature ol the news received and disenrsod as "something which would make one's hair curl." Beyond this nothing could bo dclloltely gleaned, but npon seek ing Socretrfry Camoron later, who bad just rotired, it was ascertained that instructions had been sent to General Kuger In rogard to the disposition ol troops, at the request of Governor Chamberlain. The Sec retary ol' War was then imked If there was not some thing of a startling character received. Ho replied;? "Ob, no; nothing particularly startling, only Governor Chamberlain has made a special request for a certain disposition ol troops, and|tho orders have been gtvon." Outside of this the information received by the Pres ident may be set down as having justly or otherwise excited serious apprehensions on tho part of Governor Chamberlain. Wbatevor the nature of the news accompanying tho request of Governor Chamberlain It was evident, from the impression It mode upon thoso who were iu the secret ol It, that It was regarded as of tho gravest importance. Allownnco is to be made lor excessivo alarm and cxtravngnnt representation on the part ol Govornor Chamberlain, but, despite this, he has probably been thrown luto a stale ol great excitement by reports that the (rlonds of Hampton will support bia claim with arms in their bnnds. The Importance ol tho conference held to-ulght may be aeon In the lact that among those prcsont to adviso with the President, in addition to See rotary Cameron and General Sherman, wero Generals Meigs, Bsrnard i||J Van Vllet.

Hardly n dozen members are In town. Tbo conspicuous absence of the reat Is attributed to the Intones* of Thanksgiving Day this year, the New England ami Northern Congressmen not wishing to omit the obser vance of tho festival at Ihelr homes. The only topic discussed by the few members here Is the Spcakcrnhip, lor which seven candidates are named, as lollowsMessrs. Randall, Savler, Cox, Morrisson, Fernando Wood, Springer and Blackburn.

It waa curious to witness last night a llttio fellow baadling a big bass viol twice bis sue, and handling It well, too. Ho did tbe little cbap wbo lingered the piano during almost tbo entire performance. Tbese young artists may now be called "n.aslers," but Ibera seems to be tbe making of a number ol first class professional tnaestroos among th<-m, wbo will distin guish themselves in tbe tuiure in the realms of music. Among the solo perlormors last evening were Masier V. Faivcliu on ibe liulo. giving u selection witb varia tions irom "LuciaMaster Charles llauser on the piano and again on I be violin ; Master C.

"The Bird on the Tree' is a very pretty original, conception of Masier Bimberg, who, with bis orebestro, make good music on tbe theme, which, we ibtuk, might boa little more elaborated in ilio vioiin touches representing tbe rhirping ol birds and rendered with much arnsiir skill by voung IJimberg. Tbe overture by MiIIh ("Without a Name," as ihe Germans phrase 11) showed a mas terly distribution of ihe siring and wind instruments, ami waa pvrlorraeu without a halt or bl<-in sli that could be detacti-d by ibe closest critic.
