The program ma of tlia new Italian min istry is to maiotaia Italy's neutrality ia the present European complication!. as.. .ma The Iowa legislature adjourned tine die yesterday. One of the measures made law wai a bill restoring capital punishment. RissrA i charged with rooking a strong effort to avert the possibility or an Anglo Austrian alliance before giving England, a final answer. Tub Goal answer from St. Petersburg to England's inquiry whether the entire treaty of San Stefano will be submitted to the con gress it anxiously awaited at London. While Austria is willing to participate in the peace congress of the European powers, that government entertains grave objections to the entire treaty entered into at San Ste fiao. The Grand Duke Nicholas, with a suite of twelve, visited the sultan yesterday, who im mediately returned the call at one of the pal aces in Constantinople which has been placed at the grand duke's disposal. It has been ascertained by inquiries of New York Postmaster James that mail time from New York to Australia, via San Fran cisco, is from thirty-six to thirty-eight days. The time cia Europe is sixty-two to sixty-four days. A Vienna correspondent, writing to the London pree, think? that the Austrian gov ernment seems to hi of opinion that the dif ferences mmaining between England and Russia are those of form rather than cf prin ciple, and ought not to be a bar to the meat ing of congress. The London Times asserts that the con tention of the Britibh government concerning the final settlement of peace between Russia and Turkey is justified in substance by Ea- rope, and though the remaining objection is not one which ought to be fatal, it is by Rus sia, rather than Great Britain, that that ob jection ought, in strict justice, to be removed. This year will witness the inauguration of Ilowgate'a polar colonization scheme; an ex pedition under Nares, riVi the east coast of Greenland; Prof. Nordenskjold's Swedish ex pedition, via Norway, the White sea, to Beh- ring's straits; a Dutch expedition; a German expedition under tho auspices of the Arctic exploration society, and a Russian expedition into the unknown waste north of that empire. A CORRE8POXDFNT inquired of the New York Journal of Commerce: "In event of war between England and Russia, does pri- Tateering stand abolished by the treaty of Paris on that subject, to which, as you will recollect, the United States government, uu der the secretaryship cf Mr. Marcy, refused to become a party ?" Both belligerents will be bound by that treaty, which lorever abol ished privateering. The New York cotton exchange system for secaring cotton honesty went into operation on Monday. The new rules provide that all parties engaged in handling cotton be li censed by the boaid of manager, and that cotton must be delivered from or at a licensed warehouse ia order to constitute a good de livery. It is expected that the new system will pat a stop to the practice of stealing here tofore se extensively indulged in. Ik aixcsiox to the critical situation brought about between England and Russia, in con sequence of the pretence of the British fleet in the Sea of Marmora, and the position of the Russians about Constantinople, the Lon don Times thinks that if no unfarseeu inci dent or complication discs from these cir cumstances, war may be avoided, and after a period of suspense, damaging to all the pow ers, a fresh proposal -for a conference or con gress will be brought forward under different forms, with a hope of succcks. Mr. Williamson, the United Slates min ister to Central America, who is now in New York, states that American goods would sell fMaalw iarA if 4Vtd vnra -?! r i frt tVi. in of A I t J V ii Mivj wvav msty vt w wmw wws-v ol the people, (certain sizes are required ana fcertain patterns, and a larger assortment of patterns in one package. Above all, Ameri cans who wish to compete with English and French manufacturers in those markets must boar in mind that goods expressly made to meet the wants of heme consumption are not adapted to the-e Spanish-American markets. It has been questioned whether a bank has a right to stamp "counterfeit" on a bad bill. The Journal of Commerce states that the of- IScers of national banks are, by law, required f 'to stamp or write in plain letters the word rcounteifdit, 'altered,' or 'worthless,' opon Wl fraudultnt notes issued in the form of nd intended to circulate as money, which fchall be presented at their places of business; nnd if such officers shall wrongfully stamp liny genuine note of the United States, or of he national banks, they shall, upon presenta- ion, redeem such notes at the face value hereof." The committee appointed by the United Ftatei treasury to examine the sub-treasury f New York has completed their work. Crery bxik has been examined and every ac aunt verified by independent tests. All the otes, coupons and accounts have been ac- ually counted, and all tho coin and bullion kave been weighed. The only error discov- red in the whole examination was an excess f thirty-four cents in the fractional notes. Then it is remembered that thousands of fnillions of dollars have passed through this ffioa since October, 21. 1S72, the data or me last examination of this kind, we see mat apacity, honesty, and accuracy prevail m one 35c, at least. 1 8.E.

The Viee-Prea ident was authorized to appoint a committee to receive, at New York, the body of lato Representative Leonard, and escort it to West Chester, Pennsylvania. THE DISTILLED SPIRIT TAX EXTENSION PASSED. The house joint resolution to orescribe the ume i or me payment ot the tax oa distilled spirits passed as it came from the house. THE BANKRUPT REPEAL BILL ON DECK. Senator Christiancy, from the committee on judiciary, said he was directed by a majority ot tne committee to report back the bill to repeal the bankrupt law. He said an honest effort had been made in the committee for some time post to so amend the law that it would be satisfactory to the public, but there was such a conflict of opinion that it was im possible to agree upon the amendments. Several members of the committee who did not favor its repeal consented that the bill should be reported without recommendation. Placed on the calendar. FULL TEXT OF THE BILL.' Be it enacted, etc.. That the bankrupt law approved March 2, 1867, and all acts in amendment or supplementary thereto, or in explanation thereof, be, and the same are, herebv repealed: lrrovided. however, such repeal shall in no manner invalidate or effect any cose in bankruptcy instituted and pend ing in any court prior to the day when this act shall take effect; but as to all such pend ing cases, and all future proceedings therein, the acta hereby repealed shall continue in luillorce and ettect until the same shall be fully disposed of in the same manner as if said acts had not been repealed. MINOR MATTERS. Senator Wallace, from the committee on finance, reported favorably on the senate bill for the relief of John W. Douglass. Placed on the calendar. It appropriates six thousand eisht hundred and sixty five dollars to reimburse him from loss by the robbery of a deputy while collect or of internal revenue for the nineteenth dis trict of Pennsylvania. lie also reported from the committee on foreign relations, with amendments, tha house bill supplementary to the act of March 3, 1859, to carry into effect the convention oetween ine united states ana unma, ana to give the court of claims jurisdiction in cer tain cases. Placed on the calendar. BLAINE, OF MAINE, AGAIN. Senator Blaine said: "I move that the correspondence between the American and Dritish governments in regard to the appoint ment of Del fosse on the Halifax commission be taken from the table and referred to the committee on foreign affairs. I beg at the same time to call tha attention of the senate to the fact that the correspondence more than justifies what I said in regard to the very ex traordinary enorts of Lord Uranville to torce Ueltosse upon our government. When the resolution calling for this correspondence was before the senate. 1 agreed with my honor able colleague, the chairman of the commit tee on foreign affairs, that the award would be paid, not because it was just, or was founded on any fact or evidence submitted to the Halifax commission, but simply because it was an award, which, for honor's sake, we might pay, though we got nothing for the large sum required, and if the payment of the five and a half million dollars were the end of the matter, I should be willing to vote it in silence and bury the whole matter out of sight. But the truth is, this award is only the beginning of the trouble. The period for which it pays will be ended in five years, and then our privilege for inshore fishing must be negotiated afresh. It was well known at Halifax during the ses sion of the commission that the Canadian au thorities were striving not simply for the large sum on hand, but for fixing the rate by which to assess the price of the inshore fish eries in the future. It ia our duty to show that the rate fixed by the Halifax commission has no foundation whatever in truth or in fact, and that no evidence was before the commission to justify the award. I hold in my hand some statistics of very great inter est, bearing on tho question, from which it appears that the total value of the catch in the inshore fisheries by American fishermen during the four years the treaty has been in operation, was only four hundred and thirty five thousand one hundred and seventy dol lars, on which the profit was probably one hundred thousand dollars. This covers the entire catch for which we obtained a right under the treaty. During the same four years the duties on Canadian fish and oil remitted by our government amounted to a million and a half dollars in gold, and now, under this treaty we are compelled to pay half a million dollars per annum in addition, or two million dollars gold for four years. In other words, by the remission of duties and the payment of cash from the treasury our government is called on to pay three and a half million dollars in gold for the privilege of permitting our fish ermen to make a profit of one hundred thou sand dollars on the inshore fisheries of No va Scotia. Considerable comment has been made in the country on the point suggested by me, that the Washington treaty required the unanimous verdict of the Halifax com mission before a legally valid award could be made. I quoted some eminent English authorities in support of this position. Since then, a friend has ehown me a copy of the London Times, of July 6, 1877, containing an elaborate editorial article in regard to the fishery commission, then about to assemble in Halifax. In discussing the powers of the commission, the Times said: 'On every point that comes before the fishery commission for decision the unanimous consent of all its members is, by the terms of the treaty, nec essary before an authoritative verdict can be given;" and the Times then points out the difference between the Geneva tribunal and the Halifax commission, showing that the majority could decide at Geneva, but affirm ing that the United States would have a perfect right to demand unanimity in the ver dict at Halifax. It is also well known that the Halifax commission was discussed by the Canadian ministry in 1375, after the negoti ations for a reciprocity treaty had failed. On that occasion Mr. Blake, minister of justice, said that the amount of compensation we shall receive must be an amount unani mously agreed upon by the commission. I mention these facts to show that I spoke with full authority when I suggested that the ver dict rendered at Halifax was not legally binding under the terms of the treaty. Its payment must be justified on other grounds, and I have already intimated more than once, the considerations entirely oat side of the legality or the justice of the award might constrain us to assent to its payment, but it should never be paid with out such a protest as will forever 'prevent its being quoted as a precedent or accepted as a sianaara 10 measure insnore nsnenes in fu ture negotiations." The motion to refer the correspondence to the committee on foreign relations was then agreed to. THX 80CTH CAROLINA CONTESTED BEAT. Senator Cameron Wis. called up the peti tion of D. J. Cor bin. claiming his seat as sen ator from South Carolina presented by him some time ago, and then laid on the table to be called up at some future time and moved that it be referred to the committee on privi leges and elections. So ordered. ANOTHER BATCH OF SMALL MATTERS. Senator Thurman presented a resolution from the Cleveland board of trade, remon strafing against the transfer of the control of the life-saving service from the treasury to tne navy department. Laid on tnc table. Senator Davis W. Va.J submitted a pre amble and resolution quoting from a report to congress by the secretary of the treasury, in 1871, to the effect that twenty million seven nundred thousand nine hundred and eighty-three dollars was due the government from collectors of internal revenue not in of fice, and directing the secretary to report to ine senate wnat amount or portion ot this sum has since that time been paid to the gov ernment, what amount has been settled by compromise, ana wnat steps nave been taken to collect the balance. Ordered printed and to lie on the table. Senator Coke moved that the senate bill amending the revised statutes in regard to miiiua be made tne special order for Mon day next. Agreed to. Senator Coke also submitted an amend ment providing that the several States have the right, through their governors, to select tne arms and equipments to be used, provided they shall not exceed in cost the pro rata of tne state making tne selection. On motion of Senator Oclesbv it was or dered that the testimony taken before the committee on public lands in regard to the a. ixarranan case be printed. THE SINKING FUND BILL RESUMED. At the expiration of the morning hour the senate resumed consideration of the Pacific railroad sinking fund bill, and Senator Mer- rimon spoke in favor of the bill reported by the committee on judiciary. Senator Mem mon having concluded, sen ator Hill took the floor with the understand ing that he would 8 peak to-morrow on the bill, and, with the consent of Senator Thur man. it was laid aside, and retains its place as unnnisnea business. THE FUNDING BILL, ETC. Senator Thurman said he hoped it would be the pleasure of the senate to proceed with the consideration of the funding bill with somewhat more industry than before, and that a vote would be reached by the latter part of this week, or the first of next. Senator Mathews said that when he ad- dressedlthe senate, a few days ago,on the fund ing bill, he gave notice that he would move the adoption of the bill reported by the com mittee on railroads as a substitute tor that reported by the committee on the judiciary, and he now submitted that motion. Senator Windom then called up the con sular and diplomatic appropriation bill, and said he was prepared to go on with it to-day, but, at tne request ot senator uamhn, chair man of the committee on foreign relations. he had concluded to let it go over until to morrow. After a short executive session, the senate adjourned. an ine lusie. Mr. Atkins, chairman of the committee on appropriations, reported the legislative, ex ecutive and judicial appropriation bill, and gave notice that he would call it up for con sideration on Tuesday next. Mr: Wood, from the committee on ways and means, reported a tariff bill, and it was referred to the committee of the whole. A NUMBER OF KESOLUTIONS AND BILLS PASSED. Mr. Patterson offered a resolution calling on the secretary of war for information as to what steps had been taken to protect the res idents of Colorado from an outbreak of the Ute Indians. Adopted. Mr. Singleton, chairman of the committee on printing, reported back the concurrent resolution for printing three hundred thou sand copies of the report of the commissioner of agriculture. Passed. Also, a concurrent resolution for printinc five thousand copies of the report of the for estry commission. I Mr. Aiken moved to increase the number to two hundred thousand. Agreed to, and the resolution as amended passed. ' Mr. Cox IN. Y.I reported back the senate bill to constitute a commission to consider and report a plan for providing enlarged ac commodations for the library of congress. Passed. PARTY. FEELING ON THE TARIFF BILL. Mr. Wood reported a resolution making the tariff bill the special order for Thursday, April 4th, after the morning hour. Mr. U NeilI "I move to lay tne bill on tne table." The Speaker "The bill is not before the house it is in committee of the whole." Mr. Conger I believe it is the opinion of the majority of the house that the bill should not be considered at all. Mr. Wood I am quite willing to test the sense of the house on that question, and therefore move the previous question. Mr. Conger 1 hope the resolution will be voted down; I have an amendment I want to offer. After debate the previous question was seconded by a vote of 123 to 107, and the resolution was adopted yeas, 137; nays, 114. Although it may be regarded as lurnishing a general indication ot the decision ot tne house on the subject of the tariff, it is by no means conclusive, tor it is understood tnat several Democratic members, out of courtesy to the committee of waysnd means, voted to made the bill the special order who would not vote for the passage of the bill. f THE MASSACHUSETTS CONTESTED CASE. Mr. Sprincrcr then called up the Massa chusetts contested election case of Dean vs. Field. The discussion on it continued up to five o'clock, the most noticeable speech be ing made on the Democratic side by Mr. Vv alsh Md. I against the majority report of the committee on elections. It is understood that the debate will be closed and the vote taken to-morrow. On motion of Mr. Williams, Mich., the senate amendment to the bill for thesupport of the government of the District of 'Colum bia, changing the time for the completion of the assessment tromJuiy to August, was con' curred in. Adjourned. TELEGRAPHIC BREVITY. The revenue officers report having broken up eleven illicit distilleries in Putnam and White counties, in this State, since the eight eenth instant. Dexter M'Creary and Fortune Bush, col ored, were hanged at Barnwell Courthouse. South Carolina, Friday for the murder of Stephen Hi. JSicks, his wife and two children. After killinsr the parents the murderers fired the dwelling, and the children were burned to death. Advices from a number of localities in the Ohio valley and lower lake region indicate that, owing to the fact that there had been no rains for the past week or more, the severe cold weather of last Sunday night and Monday has not utterly destroyed the fruit crop, as was feared, at least in the Ohio val ley; but in the northern portions, in many instances, the crop is seriously damaged. An explosion of dynamite occurred at Monte Bello. two miles from Baltimore, yes terday morning, instantly killing Michael O'Rourke, the boss workman, and fatally wounding several others. U Kourke had one leg torn from his body, both arms broken and lace terribly lacerated. John Lyon, an as sistant, was terribly injured, and Patrick Gil ligan.aged sixteen, fatally wounded. Judge Monroe, of the third district court of Louisiana, rendered a decision against the city of New Orleans and in favor of the Southern bank, compelling the city author ities to levy a tax of six hundred and fifty thousand dollars per annum to pay the inter est on the consolidated bonds. About four years back taxes are due on these bonds, The case will doubtless be appealed. Favllsire mt m Lynching; Party. Topeka, Kb , March 26 About twenty five men appeared at the jail in this city at two o clock tms morning. Unly two entered at first, one of them stating that he was the sheriff of Waubaunese county, and had a prisoner to put in. The jailer knew that sheriff, and told him he could not come in, and upon refusing to leave, commenced to fire on him. Immediately about twenty men poured into the jail, and a good many shots were fired on both sides. One of the assail ants was carried off wonnded, and the party retired. There are various theories as to their intention, but it is generally believed that they were alter lrue, the murderer of Rev. Mr. Wolpert, in Pottowattomie county. True is in lail. bis trial having gone over at tha late t-.rm of the court. It is believed that the mob intended to get and hang him. THE MAIL CONTRACTS Investigation Developing Gross Mlsman agement Startling In Detail, and Showing Conclusively Why the South has been Made a Bur den to the Government. Character ot the Bids Made, Besponslbll ity of the Sureties, and the Combina tions Formed t& Control them The War on Dorsey, One of the Alleged Bene ficiaries. Special Correspondence ot the Appeal. WASHroaTOsy-Mnrch 24. The investiga tion into tne an airs ot tne postomce depart ment by a sub-committee ol the house com- mitte on postoffices and post-roads, of which Mr. Money, of Mississippi, is chairman, has been fruitful of some rich developments, and promises to uncover an amount of miaman agement to call it by no harsher term that will startle the country, and relieve the south of the charge so often made by Republican congressmen that she cannot pay for the postal facilities enjoyed, and is a burden in that respect to the republic. These develop ments, while fruitful of confessions by con tractors that they have long enjoyed a fat thing, out of which, without any labor, they have been able to pocket big profits, do not so far reflect upon them in any criminal way, but do reflect upon the postal authorities, who, with facts before them, supplied by their own trusted agents, have continued to con nive at a state of things which largely ac counts for the nearly five million dollars of deficit in postal revenue, which the people have been taxed to make good. It has been put in evidence, and acknowledged by con tractors, that in some cases they do not pay anything for having the mails carried on routes for which the department, under con tract, pays them in some instances five thousand dollars, and in others more. Among other subjects upon which much light has been thrown. I may mention the character of the bids made, the responsibility of the bid ders and their sureties, and the combinations made here to control bids through officials and official favorites, there being a com pany, or, as Mr. Money called it, a "ring," formed here which contracts for over sixty routes, and sub-lets them at an enormous profit. A specimen of this sort of arrange- ment was furnished on inursaay oy Judge W. W. Wilshire,of Little Rock, an ex-member of congress, who, in his testimony before the committee, stated that during last Janu uary Hadley, the postmaster at Little Rock, called him ( Wilshire) into the postoffice and asked him to sign a lot of bids for mail con tracts. The bids only contained the number, terminal points of the mail routes, and the amount of the bond. In all other respects they were blank. Wilshire said he considered the matter, and in a few days signed the whole batch as one of the sureties. There were fifty or more bids in the batch. He understood that G. W. M'Diarmid, of Little Rock, after ward signed the bids as the other surety. He also understood that the bids had been sent from Washington by Senator Dorsey to Hadley to get them signed by propeR sureties. Wil shire claimed that he did not know that he was sitnine bonds at the time. He said he called recently at the postoffice department, and informed them of the informality in the signatures to the bids. He only found one of the bids on which a contract had been let, and that was in the name of John M. Peck, who has been in New Mexico for a year, and duringthat time has not been in Washing ton. The bid was in due form, and properly'; attested before Boone, a notary of this city. It also purported to have been signed by the sureties in presence of two witnesses, Ker- rott and Wheeler, bnt the witness said no body was present when he signed. The evi dence shows that a scheme was concocted to get hold of a large number of western con tracts, and, in order to have their bids ready to be put in at the right time, tne parties sent out blanks and got them signed by suveties. Afterward they filled them up and put in their bids. Wilshire said that he waa worth forty thousand dollars free of all in cumbrance. He was not sure that Senator Dorsey Bent out the bids; it might have been his brother. On this point Judare M'Clure (Poker Jack), Ex-Governor Clayton and Ex-Sheriff A. P. Currie will tes tify to-morrow. Peck's name, it is said, was affixed to the papers by Senator Dorsey, whom rumor also sets down as one of the proposed beneficiaries. Ex-Governor Had ley is also here, and will, no doubt, try to answer Wilshire's testimony. Rich devel opments are expected. M'Clure and Clayton are at war with Dorsey. They have raised the black flag, drawn the sword and thrown away the scabbard. They will neither give nor take quarter. i. m. k. DISASTIIOITS FIRE In New fork. Destroying; Valuable Property in Bolldlnsa and Merchan dise Llat of Bsflerers, with Amounts of koss and Insurance. New York, March 26. Fire broke out this morning in the six-story marble-front building Nos. 261 to 267 Canal street. The names spread with great rapidity, and the third alarm for fire-engines was sent out. when, after two hours of hard labor, the fire was got under control. The following is a list of the losses and insurances: The build ing was owned by E. S. Higgins. The first floor and basement were occupied by B. L. Coffin, dealer in notions and hosiery; loss, $ 65,000; insurance, foO.000. Second floor, Nos. 261 and 263, occupied by Cohen, Ball & Co., clothiers; loss, $150,000; insurance, $100,000. Second floor, Ncs. 265 and 267, occupied by Hill Bros., dealers in millinery goods; loss, flUU.UUU; insurance, ffo.uuu. Loss on building, 1200,000; insurance, f 110,- 000. No. 259, owned by Charles Fox & Son, was considerably DAMAGED BY WATER AND BREAEAGES. The upper part of No. 261 was occupied by R. R. Eiias & Co., manufacturers of white flannel drawers, shirts, etc., and the Luigerie manufacturing company of ladies' scarfs, etc. ihese firms suffered a total loss. Ihe store of No. 247 was occupied by Wm. O. Hadley as a salesroom far trunks, traveling bags and valiBes. This firm's manufactory is at Newark, and they had a large stock of Sods in store for the spring trade. Mr. ad ley fcaid that at present he was unable to make any estimate whatever of his loss. He stated that they were insured for a consider able amount; the stock is totally destroyed. Thomas Cbatterton & Co., manufacturers of men '8 and boys' clothing, occupied the third and fourth floors of No. 267 Canal sheet, and lost all their stock. Their loss is about $20,000. The buildings of Nos. 265 and 267 Canal street extended through to Howard street, the entire store and first floor being occupied by Messrs. Hill Brothers. The front and rear of the buildings on Canal and Howard streets were separated by large sky lights in the center of the block, immediately over the first floor, and it was only by the most INDEFATIGABLE EXERTIONS OF THE FIRE MEN, that the flames were prevented from commu nicating to the Howard street side of the marble pile. The upper four stories of No. 23 Howard street are occupied by Meinberg & Co., dealers in dress goods and zephyr worsted. Mr. Meinberg said his stock throughout was badly damaged by water and smoke, but until the goods were all examined it would be impossible to make any estimate of their loss. The firm has insurance for $50,000. G. F. Leschorn & Co., importers and manufacturers of dress trimmings, occu pying No. 21 Howard street, sustained dam age to their stock by water and smoke to the amount of $17,000; insured. The building is one of the finest on that part of the street, and was erected ten or twelve years ago by Mr. Hifgins for his own use as a carpet warehouse. The fire must have been smould ering for some hours, as shortly after its dis covery the flames broke forth with uncon trolable fury from the upper stories in the center of the row, and at one moment threat ened the destruction of the entire block. Dozens of streams of water were poured into the burning structure, until the firemen, see ing that it was impossible to save it, turned their attention toward saving the contiguous buildings. The upper part of the entire structure of Nos. 261, 263, 265 and 267 Canal street was gutted, the front and rear walls aione standing.

THE GRAND DUKE VI8ITINB THE SULTAN. Constantinope, March 26. Grand Duke Nicholas, accompanied by twelve Russian generals, proceeded to-day in the imperial yacht Livadia to the Dolmabaghtche palace, where' he was received by the sultan, sur rounded by his ministers and Osman Pasha and other generals. The grand duke conversed with the sultan twenty minutes. He then went to the Beger lebeg palace, where he was visited forty-five minutes later by the sultan. The grand duke and his Buite next proceeded to the former Russian embassy, in front of which the Rus sian eagles were displayed. The grand duke will sleep on board of the Livadia to-night, and take luncheon with the sultan to-mor- row. It is said that the grand duke, in referring to the Porte's apprehensions of a possible Anglo-Russian conflict, expressed the hope that the congress would effect an arrange ment. THE STOBM STILL BREWING. London, March 26. The Post savs that another vain attempt has been made to induce Russia to acknowledge some responsibility to Europe. Her reply is invariable, viz: You have full liberty of appreciation and action. The leader concludes: "Should the con gress fail, some means may vet be soucht for establishing a real or pretended agree ment. It is not probable that it will be found, and unless Russia yields to the storm that is brewing, it will break out." A correspondent at Berlin savs: "An ap parently inspired article in the Berlin Post justifies England's demand, and declares that Kussia should be wise enough to be moderate." no hope of the congress meeting. London. March 26. The following ia from St. Petersburg: "Those having the direction of affairs here appear to have very little hope of a solution of the present dead-lock, al though the holding of the contrress without England would have the advantage of iso lating her and consolidating the triple alli ance. It is regarded more probable that the congress will not meet at all. . The whole question seems to be einkinc from the sphere of reason to that of passion." A .Berlin correspondent savs that the Aus trian idea of a congress without England is being discountenanced by France and Ger many. It is possible that only the three chancellors will meet in Berlin, but even this is yet improbable. Germany is sure to, take no proceedings against England. . , ,. TILDEX'S INCOME TAX. Important Decision by Jadre Blatrh- ford, Kemandlnar the Case for Trial An Appeal to the United States Snpreme Court Probable. New York. March 26. Judtre Blatchford. of the United States district court, gave a de cision to-day in tne suit ot the United States against Ex-Governor Samuel J. Tilden, to recover some one hundred and fifty thousand dollars income-tax alleged to be due the gov ernment by the defendant. The suit, it will be remembered, was brought in the United States district court when Mr. Tilden was the Democratic candidate for President, and, it was alleged, was only brought for political purposes. The counsel for Mr. Tilden set up a demurrer, and the case was argued at great length. Judge Blatchford's decision is quite lengthy, and cites innumerable authorities, the principal of which are the United States supreme court decision in the Dollars savings bank case and the Rhode Island case lately decided by the supreme court. He sustains the defendant's demurrer to the first count in the complaint, on the ground that in the year covered by this count Mr. Tilden had made a return rxt his income, and paid the tax on such return ; on the other eleven counts in the complaint he sustains the plaintiffs, the United States, in their demurrer to the ans wer of the defense, holding, virtually, that the government was not bound by the action of the United States assessor, as its agent, and that Mr. Tilden was required to make, himself, a return of his income, which he had not done. The case is now to proceed to trial by a jury, on the question of the amount of income ot Mr. lilden during the years in which he made no return himself. . For three years Mr. Tilden allowed the United States assessor to make the return, and paid the tax on such return, together with a penalty of five per cent.; but this, the court holds, was not sufficient, as will be seen by the decision above. It is more than probable that Mr. Tilden 's counsel will appeal the case to the United States supreme court. BRITISH CORN TB VDE. The Past Week's Review ttlves Sea sonable Weather Reports and Favorable Condition or Wheat Hopes .of .'a Prosperous Season. London, March 26. The Mark Lane Ex press, reviewing the untisn corn traae the past week, says: A large breadth ot spring corn will be planted under the most favorable conditions, and the seasonable weather of the last tew weens has strengthened the wheat plant without unduly forcing it. In spite of the present wintry weather we have every reason to hope for a more prosperous season than for three years. In many dis tricts the sowing of barley and oats is nearly completed, and another week of dry weather would see nearly the end of spring sowing. Some reaction in favor of higher prices is noticeable in the wheat trade, but the im provement has only in a few cases extended to home-grown grain, whichlhas been mar keted in very short quantity and in a some what defective condition. Foreign wheat, of which imports into London were very mod erate, is met . with an improved demand, at an advance of one shilling per quarter, chiefly on American descriptions, but more business is oassinsr than of late in all varie ties, and the tendency of prices is in sellers' favor. There has been some continental de mand, which has tended to advance values for cargoes off the coast. It is probable France will require seven hundred thousand quarters ot tine wheat lor mixing purposes between this and harvest. Judging from the dullness of trade at the close of the week, it is doubtful whether hist week Mon day's advance will be maintained, as arri vals of wheat from America and Russia the next few months will be on too large a scale to admit ot much enhancement of values. France will probably relieve ns of some por tion of the accumulated stock in southern Russia; but, allowing for this, it is scarcely likely the ordinary consumptive de mand will be sufficient to support resent currencies. Some attention is irected to Indian wheat, of which stocks in London are worked down to a comparative narrow compass, and a slight improvement in the value of Calcutta produce appears Erobable. Maize, although quiet, is fair j steady. Both old and .new corn is in moderate request at late rates, but other sorts of feeding corn are dull. Grinding bar ley and inferior sorts of oats have given way one shilling and sixpence per quarter, respect ively, with moderate arrivals at the ports of call. The floating cargo trade for wheat ruled steady. The demand for the continent continues. Maize has advanced three pence to sixpence. Barley sold slowly, at rather easier terms.

Secretary Schur Still Unable for Put y SilTer Coinage Arrangements The Yarlons Committees at Work Banking and Currency Mat ters General Items. Washington, March 26. Ex-Representative Glen W. Schofield. of Pennsylvania, has been nominated by the President to be register of the treasury, in the place of Hon. John Allison, deceased. v " Subscription to the four per cent, loan to day amounted to $172,000. BEFOBE THE COMMITTEES. The senate finance committee to-day de cided to recommend the passage of the house joint resolution extending to three years the time for the payment of taxes on distilled spirits. Several members of the committee reserved the right to oppose the measure in the senate. The house judiciary committee to-day agreed to report favorably the senate bill annulling the act of the Wyoming legislature creating a new judicial district in that Terri tory and assigning Judge Peck thereto, the new district containing very few inhabitants and affording practically no business. The house committee on naval affairs agreed to report favorably the bill limiting enlistments in the navy to eight thousand two hundred and fifty. The house postoffice committee to-day E radically agreed to strike out of Waddell's ill providing for the classification of mail matter, the clause prohibiting express com panies carrying mail matter of the first and second class. The senate finance committee to-day voted to report favorably on the nomination of R. M. Reynolds, of Alabama, to be first auditor of the treasury. The house committee on Indian affairs have agreed to substitute the senate bill for the bul in the house, authorizing the President to make a treaty with the Ute Indians, of Colorado, they surrendering their reservations in Colorado and concentrating on one reser vation on White river.

A number of members of congress, friends of the President, called upon him this morn ing with reference to the speech of Senator Howe. They all expressed more feeling in the matter than the President himself, and , suggested that the speech be1 answered, fear ing that to permit it to pass in silence might be an admission of its entire truth. The President took a different view, placing him self On the ground that what he had done in the way of official action was based on his sense of right, without thinking for a moment what might be the result as affecting him personally. He was opposed to a public re sponse, preferring that his acts should be the interpreter of his motives and principles. He had songht to perform his duty, and with thin ha waa content, no matter hnw Un with preiudiced minds might view his con- 1 1 i i i l duct. All would recouecc, ne saia, now oit terly Senator Howe had denounced President Lincoln at the close of his first term, and how others had sought to prevent Mr. Lincoln from being nominated for a second term, but, notwithstanding all this, he was renominated and became more popular than ever, the people having become better acquainted with him and appreciating his conduct more. President Hayes was per fectly willing to be judged by the same tribu nal. The President does not appear in the least disturbed by Howe's speech, believing that" time will fully vindicate him. Among those who called were Senators Mathews, Hoar, Cameron, of Wisconsin, and Ferry and Rep resentative M'Cook, of New York. NOMINATIONS CONFIRMED AND REJECTED. The senate, in executive session, confirmed the nomination of W. P. Conday as collector of customs at Wilmington, North Carolina, and rejected by a large majority the nomina tion of John M. Dunn as United States marshal for Delaware. The latter was the subjectof considerable discussion, and was earnestly opposed by both of the Delaware senators. SECRETARY SCHUSZ was not able to go to his office to-day, but is now out of bed. His trouble is from over work, at the rate of fourteen or hi teen hours of daily labor. SILVER DOLLAR COINAGE ARRANGEMENTS. Messrs. French, Linderman and Gilifellan, commissioners appointed by the secretary of the treasury to take charge of the purchase of the silver bullion, announce that they have on hand a sufficient to serve the purpose ot Via rlnllar minacra for several weeks, and will not negotiate for silver for some weeks, unlee? the market should lail to such a ngure as would make it advantageous to the govern ment to purchase. They also announce that arrangements are about completed in the Philadelphia mint which will enable the gov ernment to produce there next month two million silver dollars, the minimum amount required to be coined in any one month un der the law. BANEING AND CURRENCY MATTERS. The committee on banking and currency to-day had a general consultation concerning the counting or weighing of coin in the several assistant-treasurers offices and other depositories of the government. It was thought proper that the counting or weigh in? at the New York office should take place. and at all points where the government has large coin deposits. The secretary of the treasury will; by invi tation, appear before the committee and give his views concerning resumption and cognate matters. IN CABINET SESSION. The cabinet to-day considered whether the brevet rank should or should not be con ferred on maiors. The general understand ing seemed to be that the rank should only be conferred m extraordinary cases. THE LOUISIANA LOG CASES. A telegram at the interior department re ports that Gills & rlatz and A. J. ferkins, who claimed over three-fourths of ninety- eight thousand logs seized in Calcassien parish, Louisiana, and intervened for in the suitot the United states vs. Joseph Hampton et al., confessed judgment, All the defend ants except one have confessed judgment. REDUCTIONS IN THE TARIFF BILL. The tariff bill, as originally reported by the sub-committee, has been materially changed in parts by a full committee, ihe average reduction on same of the schedules of the present tariff is four, twenty and twenty-five per cent., and on metals only tour per cent. It is Mr. Woods's intention to ad dress the house Thursday next, when the bill comes up for consideration, when he will fully explain the ettect of the bill on the rev enue should it become a law. A Demand for MBls Six's" Release. New York, March 26. Comptroller Kel ly has sent a communication to Attorney General Fairchild urging the release of Wm. M. Tweed. Kelly says that his promise to Tweed that the late attorney-general would release him if he would make a full confession of bis misdeeds and surrender his property induced Tweed's confession and his proffer of the surrender of his property. He states that the late attorney-general promised him Kelly he (would discharge Tweed if he complied with these demands. As a citizen, Kelly says, he feels that the State is being dishonored by this breach of trust, and he believed that Tweed's further detention was neither beneficial to the State as an example to evil doers, nor serviceable to the city. Tweed's testimony, says Kelly, in the suits against the city, involving millions of dollars, would be very important, but he re fuses to testify unless discharged. A BEHAREABLE CASE. Thlrty-SeTen Peeket-Kulves Pound In a Dead Han's Stomach An Al most Incredible but Well Authenticated Story. A St. Louis correspondent furnishes the Evening Post, of that city, with tho follow ing remarkable case: In your issue of Sat urday there is related an incident of a eirl swallowing a number of dimes and ither metallic substances, and after retain ing them for some time, throwing them off her stomach, the con dition of the metals making it apparent that some of them had been in their hiding place for a considerable time. Many incredulous people will regard this as a doubtful story, but to show what the human stomach is ca pable of holding, I will relate an incident that happened some years ago, and is well authenticated. A REMARKABLE CASE. A man named James Moore, a laborer liv ing in London, was brought to Guy's hos pital," in that city, sick. He was to all ap- Eearance a healthy, strong man, about forty ve years of age. He was taken to the med ical ward and examined by the attendant doctor, when the patient complained of a pain in the stomach. He was treated but grew worse, and after several days the attention of the faculty of the hospital was called to the case. But none of them could diagnose the disease. The patient could not retain any nour ishment on his stomach, gradually grew weaker, and after being in the hos pital about one month, died. A post-mortem examination was then held to ascertain the cause of death in this mysterious case. On opening the stomach the remains of thirty seven pocket-knives were found. I say re mains, because some of them had been digested so far that only a por tion of one blade was found Others were comparatively uninjured. In most of the knives the handles were gone entirely, the metal in that part of the knife and the mate rial of which the handle was made being more digestible than the hardened steel of the blades. THE EVIDENCE. In the museum of Guy's hospital will now be found a glass case containing these knives with the particulars attached, relating the circumstances attending their recovery from the stomach ot the dead man. Wo date could be found on which to base an opinion of the length of time they had been swallowed, but from the condition of some of Lthem they must have been there for many years. Ihe man, probably, had had a mama for swallowing knives, or else devoured them when in an unconscious condition. At Huntingdon, this State, Elvira, daugh ter of Esquire Elijah Scales, of that place, shot herself through the heart with a rifle, applying her foot to the hammer. ADDITIONAL. lilVKU NEWS.
