After the assignment of Mr. Lewis Flemmor we pur chased his stock and announced in the Star of October 8Tth to the effect that the prima then prevailing were I too high. and that the business had fallen into* rut: which facta are corroborated by hia assignment, even after charging what he considered a living profit.

The solicitor of the Treasury has given an opinion to the Secretary of the Treasury that the laws regulating the appraisement of im ported merchandise require that merchants who ire selected as reappraising officers. whe*her to be associated with the general ap Sraiser or not. shall be citizens of the United tates. The Secretary hatf acquiesced in this opinion, and customs officers have been in structed to act in accordance therewith. This ruling will make a change in the practice pre vailing at the port of New York. The collector at that port held that the law did not require merchant appraisers selected to act with the general appraiser to be citizens of the United States. Presidential Postmasters Appointed.?The President has appointed the following-named postmasters: John B. Wilson. Corning, Iowa. vice Horatio F. Dale, resigned; L. L. Stacey, Tecumseh, Mich., vice C.

At the following-named post-offices recently raised from the fourth to the presi dential class the President has appointed the incumbents?Sandersville, Ga.; Floral Park, N. Y.; West Superior, Wis. Blaine and Belmont. THE FORMER NOT LIKELY TO OPPOSE THE CON firmation OF THE LATTER AS MINISTER TO SPAIN. It has been said that Mr. Blaine will use bis influence to prevent the confirmation of Mr. Belmont as minister to Spain. A gentleman who is familiar with the facta connected with the famous controversy between Mr. Blaine and Mr. Belmont, which occurred some years ago. assured a Stab reporter this morning that neither had cherishedanv such ill-will toward the other as would result in a desire for re venge or retaliation. Both, he said, have since regretted the great publicity given to the afiair. and they nave carefully avoided speak ing disrespectfully of each other since. He ?aid that from what he knew of Mr. Blaine per sonally, and particularly as to hik feeling in this connection, he was confident that he would not by word or action oppose Mr. Belmont's confirmation. A Chicago Candidate for Public Printer. A pretty strong candidate for the position of government printer, tinder the new adminis tration, is said to be Mr. W. M. Meredith, the president of the Western Engraving and Print ing company, at Chicago. He has been fore man in several newspaper offices, and is said to be an expert practical printer. Other reasons given for his appointment are that be was in General Harrison s regiment during the war, has since been on friendly terms with the Pree ident-elect, and was one of the most pro nounced of the few Harrison men of Chicago when that city was wild in soppart of Jadge Ores ham. The Fence ox Pbttatb Pbopebtt.?Postmas ter Boas said to-day that the Commissioners had arranged matters so that there would probably be no farther difficulty in the way of the letter carriers reaching the people on 16th street ex tended. The CommisHOMm, he said ware sat isfied that the obstructing fenoe was erected on HARRISON'S CABINET. Gossip Afloat in Washington To-day. MB. HHEBMAX HATES DIPLOMACY?BUT BE MIQHT ACCEPT THE PORTFOLIO OP THE STATE DE PARTMENT?ALLISON OB CLARKSON FROM IOWA? TALK ABOUT THE OTHER departments. If Mr. Sherman accepts the Secretaryship of State tinder Mr. Harrison it will not be on ac count of his lore of diplomatic affairs. His connection with the foreign affairs committee, of coarse, associates him with those matters and carries with it a familiarity with the sub ject, but his distaste for all '-foreign entangle ments" and delicate diplomacy is well known among his colleagues. He has a mind that can grasp most any subject he is disposed to give his attention to, but his disposition to avoid foreign questions and the evident effort it- cost him to give his attention to them when he thought it his duty has been the subject of pleasantry among his associates on the com mittee. His position on that committee was an honor to him in recognition of his ability and service, but it was known that he had an abso lute dislike for the work. He is too positive and too direct to tolerate the circumlocution of diplomacy long. The Canadian question, which comes most closely to our own domestic affairs, is about the only thing he has really taken an interest in. In the State department he would probably adopt a firm American policy, but ho would not be dis posed, it is thought,'to interest himself much in the affairs of other nations. A good many people who know how he feels about these matters express the opinion that he would not accopt the portfolio of State, yet there is a power and dignity in the office which might be attractive to nim, and it is probable thatne can have it if he desires. ALLISON AND CLARKSON. There is much talk about Mr. Clarkson's going into the cabinet or some other office. He is looked upon as at about the head of political affairs in Iowa now, and it is not like ly that he would accept anything less than a cabinet position. It is believed Dy many that he has no ambition for that. If Mr. Allison should go into the Treasury department, that would, of course, leave Mr. Clarkson out of the cabinet. There would then be an opening much more to his liking. The seat vacated in the Senate by Mr. Allison would be a plumb for some ambitious Iowa republican, and Mr. Clarkson might get it. The honor would lie between him and ex-Representative Hepburn. When in the House Mr. Hepburn was regarded as one of the strongest men on the republican side, and he might prove a strong rival Yet Mr. Clarkson's friends believe he can get most anything he wants of Iowa. Mr. Allison may not want to go into the cabinet. He may prefer to hold his present honorable position. OTHER PORTFOLIOS. It is regarded as pretty certain that Mr. New wants and expects to go into the cabinet. He may be satisfied with a foreign mission. Some doubt is being expressed now about Gen. Alger's being made Secretary of War. The assumption has been upon the notion that some sort of agreement was entered into at Chi cago, but it does not appear what the consider ation was that induced Mr. Harrison to hold out such a promise to the Michigan millionaire. Gen. Alger has, doubtless, been a large con tributor to the campaign fund, but there are several of such contributors. Jerre Rusk, of Wisconsin, may get that place. A good many reasons are given why Mr. Dingley, of Maine, would make a good Secre tary of the Navy. It is accepted on *11 hands that Wanamaker is to be the Postmaster-General. The friends of Mr. W. W. Murray, of Tennes see, believe that he is likely to get a call into Mr. Harrison's cabinet They say that if any southern man is selected for this distinction Mr. Murray is apt to be chosen for Attorney General. 'He is probably the most prominent republican of that state and is a member of the republican national committee. DISTRICT APPROPRIATIONS. The Sub-Committee Conferring with the District Commissioners. The House committee on appropriations held a meeting to-day and discussed briefly the gen eral situation as to the appropriation bills. There was nothing that they could do, as a committee, until the sub-committees had some bill ready for them, so that with a general un derstanding that the work of the committee should be disposed of as rapidly as possible, they adjourned, subject to call as soon as a sub-committee should be ready to report. Four members of the sub-committee in charge of the District bill?Messrs. Clements. Rice, Henderson and McComas?were present and held an informal conference with the Dis trict Commissioners.

Ixdianapolis. Nov. 21.?There seems to be no foundation for the published report that ex Senator Warner Miller, ex-Senator Piatt, Henator Frank Hiscock and I'hauncey M. Depew will accompany Vice-President-elect Morton and wife on their coming visit to Gen. | and Mrs. Harrison. Mr. Morton's contemplated | visit is looked upon as an interchange of social amenities and no unusual political significance is. at this juncture, associated with it. The ! date will probably be announced at an early day. It is reliably stated that Gen. Harrison has determined to go east. Nothing is known here of the reported invi tation extended to Senator Allison. Those in a position to form a good opinion think that in view of Vice-chairman Ciarkson's intimate friendship with Senator Allison, he may prac ticallv be regarded as the letter's representa tive in any interchange of political views be tween the Senator and the Presidqpt-elect. Should Senator Allison visit the President-elect close upon the heels of his friend. ColonelClarkson, after the latter*consultation yesterday and last night, such a visit would doubtless be regarded here with considerable significance. There is pretty good reason here for believing that a goodly part of Vice-Chair man Ciarkson's conversation with Oen. Harrison was devoted to the political situation in New York state as viewed by the former after a four months' residence there and commingling with the leaders of the old factions in the Em pire state. It is this experience with, and fresh political knowledge of. eastern men and affairs that Col. Clarkson is believed to have been im parting to the President-elect. The correspond ent would add. in the absence of his ability to auote either of the participating authorities, tnat the situation in New York, from an ad ministrative standpoint, is thought here to have some exceedingly puzzling and prospec tively conflicting features growing out of the ambitious expectations of leading statesmen j and politicians.

Her cries had alarmed the man and he bad fled without attempting any further violence. THE ASSASSIN DISAPPEARS.

After investigation of the facts the police are of opinion that the attempted murder in White chapel this morning was not the work of the man who committed the atrocious murders in that vicinity recently.
