At 11 o'clock the president, Secretary of the Treasury Foster and Attorney- General Miller met to consult with reference to the cholera situation. As sistant-Secretary Spaulding, of the treasury department, and Dr. Wyman, surgeon-general of the marine hospital service, were also present. After an hour's deliberation it was decided not to issue any proclamation now, but to issue a special circular. Accordingly the fol lowing circular has been promulgated - To Collectors of Customs, Medical Officers, Marine Hospital Service, Foreign Steam ship Companies, state atd Local Board* of Health: It having been officially declared that cholera prevails in various portions of Russia, Germany, France and at certain ports of Great Britain, as well as in Asia; and it having been made to appear that immigrants in large number are coming into the United States from the infected districts aforesaid,an d that they and their personal effects are liable to introduce cholera into the United States, and that vessels occupied by them are a direct menace to health; and it having been further shown that under the laws of the several states quarantine detentions may be imposed upon these vessels a sufficient length of time to insure against the introduction of contagious diseases, it is hereby ordered that no vessel from foreign ports carrying im migrants shall be permitted to enter into ports of the United States until said vessel shall have undergone a quarantine detention of twenty days (unless such detention is forbidden by the laws of the state or regulations made thereunder), and of such greater number ti days as may be fixed in each speci//case by the state authorities. // This circular is /j take immediate ef fect, except in ca is of vessels efloat at this date, which //fill be made the spe cial coiisideratiy/i upon due tppKcH: ion to tbe department. (Signed): Walter Wyman, , Surgeon-General U. S. M. H. service. Charles Foster, Secretary of the treasury. Approved: Benjamin Hum.son. the attornky-genebal'b opinion. Attorney-General Miller rendered an opinion to the president this afternoon, that the surgeon-general of the marine hospital service and the secretary of the treasury, with the approval of the presi dent, have authority to make needful rules and regulations, not inconsistent with the state laws, for the quarantine of ships, with a view to the protection of the health and lives of the people. MAILS TO BE FUMIGATED. The postmaster general this afternoon issued an order instructing the superin tendent of foreign mails to immediately take such steps as may be necessary to thoroughly disinfect mails reaching the United States from foreign porta where contagioua diseases are said to be pre vailing. Telegrams have also been sent to the postmasters at the Canadian bor der, directing them to consult with the local health officers and ascertain if there is necessity for the fumigation of the mails. A HINT FOR CANADA. Tonight Dr. Wyman notified the three leading health officers of Canada of the action taken today in issuing a circular, and while no request is made that like action be taken by Canada, Dr. Wyman hopes that it will be done. On the whole, both the president, cabinet and marine hospital service officers, after consultation today over the situation, are of the opinion that every step look ing to the safety of the people has been taken. THE SITUATION AT NEW YORK. An Alleged Cholera Patient—Moravia Passengers Doing; Wall. New York, Sept. I.—Captain Cross, of the Florence-street station, reports tonight that he is informed by Dr. H.

A dispatch from quarantine, received at 6p. m., says: "Dr. Jenkins has just returned from Hoffman Island, and the steamer Moravia. There are no new cases and no fresh developments, but one of the crew of the steamboat Hazel Kirk was taken sick, and either know ing, Or fearing, he had tha cholera, jumped overboard and was drowned." The arrival of steamers .from Europe, particularly those from infected ports, that are now at sea, are anxiously awaited by the quarantine officials. A STRICT WATCH KEPT. Today policemen were stationed on the wharves and along the shores of the island from Stapleton to New Creek, at South Beach, a distance of four miles, to prevent any landing oi small boats which might have on board any one wbo had come from any vessel quaran tined, or any person landing from a for eign vessel. A ■trie, watch ia being kept also to prevent emigrants from Swineburn or Hoffmen island irom landing at; Fort Wadaworth, 8. I. The manner in which the circular of Surgeon General Wyman waa received in shipping circlea, showed that the agents were expecting auch an order, and realized the necessity for it. Tonight everything at quarantine ia very quiet. NO BACTERIA FOUND. Search for bacteria in the foul linen on board of the Moravia, which was worn by cholera victims, up to tbe pres ent, haa been fruitless, but further ex periments will be carried on tomorrow.

Although thinga have been very quiet at the quarantine station today, the health officer expecta livelier timea to morrow, and on the following days, aa several ships are expected in from in -1 fected porta. ROUGII ON FRUIT DEALERS. The cholera scare ia rough on fruit dealers in the Washington market and elsewhere, for since the eating of unripe or overripe fruit haa been tabooed by the board of health, peaches, pears and plums have been at a discount, and large dealera say that they have hard work to find a market for their gooda at any price. Big train loads of fruit are coming in from the country every day, and atocka are accumulating with auch rapidity, that some of the dealers can hardly find a place to store their crates, boxes and barrels.

The question of fusion with the People's party or Farmers' Alliance in certain states, waa freely discussed, and the committee unreservedly gave ita ap proval, wherever fusion met the wisdom of the regular Democratic local organi zation. In regard to the political situation' generally, Chairman Dickinson today said: "The wee* has been thoroughly looked over, and the prospects of a Dem ocratic victory in hitherto Republican states were never brighter. We intend to perfect organization in every state, and every inch of ground will be fought. 1 shall make no claims in any States, but I know that an aggressive tight will bring some doubtful ones over to the Democracy. There will be per fect harmony between the New York headquarters and those in charge here. I saw Cleveland Saturday, and he is sur prisingly familiar with the situation here. He believes the fight on the tariff should be pushed, and so it will." Being asked if the report of Labor Commissioner Peck would have the effect of re-opening the fight between the Hill and Cleveland factions, Dickin son said: "You may say, as emphatically as you wish, that there are, and will be no divisions in the New York Democracy. I know whereof I speak, when I say Senator Hill and Tammany are loyal to the ticket." HARRISON'S HURRY. The President Cancels His Now York Engagement. New York, Sept. L — Chairman Charles W.
