Labouchbre, in London Truth, pre
dicts, as a result of the Parliamentary
elections, that Lord Salisbury will be
installed in office and be supported by
Hartington's friends and tae mem
bers for Birmingham. In which case
he declas it will be the duty of the
radicals to render it impofsib'e f r
anyone else tbaa Mr. Gladstone to
carry on the government. This they
can easily do by a etiict alliance with
the Irish members nnder Parnell.
A letter in the New York Herald of
Widnecday from Rio Janeiro, de
scribes the present political agita
tions in Brazil as including all the ele
ments that enter into the strife in
Great Britain and Wand. There is
the same demand for an enlargement
of the number of electors to which tbe
British' Parliament has been forced to
yield in its various reform bills, and
there is the same clamor for autonomy
of the provinces and their municipali
ties as that which under the name of
home rule is the outcry of the Irish.
The Philadelphia Timet reports a
significant interview with ex Gov.
Poster (Rep ), of Ohio. "I tremble
for Gen. Beaver and the Republican

campaign," said he, "I know Bi&vtr,
and like him, but I sea by the plat
form adopted last Wednesday that the
Republican party of Pennsylvania is
going to wrostlo with the prohibition
question. Ttie Republicans of Ohio
tried it in 1S82 aid got wiped out."
And thin we must conclude, inferentl
ally, is to be the fa'e of Beaver. It
will be if Channcey Black is the Demo
cratin nominee.

It is difficult for the Knglith at any
time to understand American humor,
but from the pulpit it really alarms
them. The Xem says of his la-.t ser
mon in the temple that "with, per
haps, one notable exception, it is un
like anything wo are accustomed to
hear. In its s'rength and tenderness
and humor, above all, its self-confidence,
runnirjg sometimes into a kind
of irreverent audacity, it has all the
qualities of the spiritual to 1 from
which it springs."

w-dl informed circles, and it wouldn't
fce mrprijing if the bill was defeated
by its former f iends. In fact, a very
prominent Western member said to
your correspondent today : V wouldn't
be much of a calamity if tbeb II wasn't

would veto it, owing to the fact that
it inc udes a number of much
larger appropriations than tbe
public interests really require. Sach

fact that; Cr hie, Morrison, Randall,

denied that thoir action will have
gret influence on the rest cf the

Pr. stdent dos nr.t think the public
business of the city is large enoogh to

In his metsae upon the subject the
President sayi: "It is not claimed that
tba gverumcnt has auy public de
p ait men t or buninef s which it should
quarter at Daylon, except its p st
office and internal revenue office. The
former is represented as employing
ten clerk?, sixleen regular and two
(ubstitote letter carriers, and two spe
c al delivery employes, who, I sup
pose, are boys who only occasionally
act in eervice. I do not understand
that the present postofflce quarters
ere either insufficient or inconvenient
By a eta'ement prepared by the pres
ent postmaster, it appears that ttey
aie runted by tho government for a
period of ten years from the 15th day
rf Octobfr, 18S.I, at an Annual rent of
$2950, which includes the post of heat
ing the seme. Tho office of the In
ternal Revenue Collector is claimed to
be inadequate, but I am led to believe
that this officer ia fairly ncommo
datidat an annu.il rental of fOCO. It
is not imporsible that a sugest!on
to chang) the area of this revet u
d Btrict may be adopted which would
relievo any comp'a nt of inad'quacy
of office room. With only these two
r.flk'es to provide for, I am not satis
fied that the expenditure of $150,000
for thir accommodation as proposed
by this bill is in ace rdanco with
ectind business principles cr consist
ent with that economy in public
alViirs which bai been promised to
the people."

A Lively Night Ncanlon.
Washington, July 9. The night
session of the House was not thi j

was tnlivent d by a speech from Mr.
Wallace, of Louisiana, in opposition to
a p ivato pension bill, and - tbo
facetious remarks of memcers who in
terrupted him from time to time and
induced in comiderable badinage.
In the midst cf it there was a litt'e tilt
between Mr. Wallacs and Mr. Crain
Tex. The latter intimated that
Wallace was elected by accident, and
Wallace retorted that Crain secured
his election by bulldozing. Oil was
finally thrown npon the troubled
wattrs by the withdrawal of
the bill to which objection bad
been made. The Coinmitteo of
the Whole then proceeded for half an
hour without trjuble, when another
