July 9.—First-Comptrol ler Porter has not yet decided what his ruling Hill bo us to tho language of tho Judiciary act which makes tho appropriations for United States prisoners. Commissioner Ilaum is to have another consultation with him. It is al ready agreed that the Government can under take to feed tho prisoners, but the Comptroller greatly doubts whether ho can no construe the law that the expenses for the arrest of criminals and for their transportation after arrest con bo paid out of tho Judlciory funds. The language “for tho transportation of,” he concludes, was Intended to apply only to convicted ‘prison ers. If that construction shall prevail, It will of course not be possible for tho United States Marshals to proceed to make arrests during Uks period of six months, and to furnish from their private funds the necessary costs of transporta tion and the main business of prisoners. Tho Commissioner of Internal Revenue seems to bo of opinion that it the law is construed as Comp troller Porter now appears likely to construe It, United States Marshals cannot moke arrests In revenue cases. For, while these officials might forego their own fees, It would not bo within the lloanclal ability of many of them to advance at the risk of loss the money necessary to carry on the criminal business of the United States Courts. now IT WORKS. •fh ffi* irVjfcm Associated Prtn. Washington, D. C., July 9.—A Special Agent of tho Post-Office Department arrested In New Mexico a mall-robber belonging to a gang of Texas highwaymen. The Judge granted an or der of removal to Texas for trial,.hut the United States Marshal had no money to pay the neces sary expenses.

The Post-Office Agent thereupon started for Texas with the prisoner, tho stage companies carrying him on trust, and tho Agent providing provisions tor the 600-mllc lourucy, ami guard ing the desperado night and day himself. PESTILENCE-BREEDER. • RESULT OF DEMOCRATIC ECONOMY. Special DUoalch to The 2'ribune. Washington, D. C., July o.—Anolhcr Illus tration of tho false economy, of Democratic Congressional methods (s shown In tho appro priation for the tho great intercepting sewer now in process ot construction which Is ex pected to greatly beneflt Uic health of, Washiug ton. It was known that tho minimum cost of tiie sewer would bo SOO,OOO. The Democratic Congressmen refused, however, on tho ground of economy, to appropriate more than $05,000. The consequence is that the appropriation will expire In September, with the work but two thirds done, leaving a largo tract of land In tho central part of tho city open to distribute mala ria and sewer-eases until Congress shall bo dis posed to complete the appropriation. INVESTIGATION. The Health Ofllccrs to-day visited the Potomac .flats,ln the vicinity ot Long Bridge, where there aroocrcsof putrid and decaying matter, from which an intolerable stench arises that Is per ceptible throughout South Washington. The result of the investigation is thus described: There were found to bo about five acres covered with a thick scum of greou and brown, mid at first it was supposed it was composed of decay ing vegetable matter, but the odor of ftucal matter was clearly perceptible, and dually they came to tho conclusion that both vegetable mat ter mid sewage were component parts of tho deposit. In tho cove below Long Bridge was found much of the same kind of a nuisance, but tills is out of the Jurisdiction of the Health Officer. It is probable that temporary relief will lie given by the uso of disinfectants, and, if possible, tho surface will bo hauled to tho channel, where it may he floated oil. All this happens iuacliy;orer which Congress, under the Constitution, HAS EXCI-URIVB CONTROL The Dcmockallc manager* Knew what tho con ditions of these flats were last year.

C., July o.—The suit of Miss Horton ugaloit the sou of United States Senator •Morgan for broach of promise has many sensa tional features. The defendant is a son of United States Senator Morgan, of Alabama, and (s acting as the private secretary of his father, and the plaintiff Is the daughter of Sen ator Morgan’s deceased law partner, and her mother and herself are residents of Dayton. ‘She Is now about 18 years' ol age, a handsome hruuoUo, graceful and modest-looking. It ai>- pears from her statements that after the death : of her father the two families, well acquainted before, were more Intimate than ever, aud Mor gan became very attentive to her, but the court ship woe only of a lew mouths’duration. She charges that, under Uie promise of marriage, he seduced her, and afterwards attempted to keep up his Improper relations with her, but she refused. She also states that, having failed to keep bis contract to marry her, she charged him with, seduction, and ho Is now under Indictment for that offense at Selma, Ala., and that before the time approached when tbe case would bo called for trial several at tempts were, made by parties who she believes were In the interest of Morgan to kidnap ber to keep her from appearing at the' trial, aud on one occasion an attempt was msda on her life, a man shooting at her. Fearing that if the case was called for trial la Alabama Justice would not be done her, a few months ago she came here to avenge licr wrong*, ami went to the of fice of Morgan with Oio intention of shooting lilni. Jlcr Intentions bafl, however, been com municated to Mortran. amt when ihc n|ipearcd he was on his guard, ul>d, seizing her, he got the pistol from her hand! flincu then she lm« concluded to sock rcdrflss through the civil courts. :unl has therefore filled the above suit. Mr. O’Neal, of the Marshal’* ofilcc, served the paper* on Mr. Morgan last evening, mid ho re marked that ho had been expecting it. DENIAL. To th« VTftUm AnocUltJ Prtu. Washington, D. C., July 9.—J.

C., July O.—Tlio great bulk of the ten-forties deposited as security for tho circulation of National hanks matures to-mor row, after which these hoods will not draw In terest. There still remain on deposit os secu rity for the clrculotton of National hanks $23,- 000,000 In ten-forty bonds, mid ail of it matures between now and Jul,* 21. The Treas ury authorities, howevtr, do not think that the banks wilt all Immediately substitute the 4 per cents for tills largo amount. It Is believed on the contrary that some of the banks will for the present forego the three months'accumulated Interest which they cannot receive until the bonds are surrendered, and will submit to still further loss of Interest by leaving the called ten-forties as security for circulation. The law It appears will bo fully satisfied so faros the security (rocs ,by leaving the ten-forties. The only dis advantage to the banks will bo the loss of Interest. THB FIVE PER OK ST FUND. The Secretary ot the Treasury Is reported to have decided that the silver dollar cannot be re ceived on account ot the 5 per cent redemption fund from National banks. One portion of the law provides that this fund shall consist of law ful money. Another requires that redemption shall bo made In legal-tenders. It Is on flic ba sis of this latter provision, doubtless, that Sec retary Sherman rules that the silver dollar shall not bo permitted tueunsiltuto part of Unit fund. The silver men will doubtless not neglect to Inquire whether Secretary Sherman would make the same distinction If Urn banks should proixiso to alter cold as a portion of the 5 per cent fund, and the law would still require that the bank notes should bo redeemed hi legaV.cnder- It will he seen that the distinction between local tender and lawful money is still maintained as to the 5 per cent fund.

Berlin, July O.—The adoption of Increased duties upon grain and cattle, so strongly de manded by the agricultural Interest ami sup ported by Bismarck, seems to be assured, a com promise having bccu ullcctcd with protectionist manufacturers. BII.VER IN OERMANT. The Berlin JJotkii Xtitung understands that, at the sitting of the Inner Committee of the Rclchbank, the question of the silver circulation of the country was discussed, and It was unani mously screed that an Increase In the amount of this was desirable. The same paper estimates the value of the thaler pieces In the public treas uries at £12,600,000. and the whole value ot sil ver held ut £21,503,000. The former amount Is probably made up of the £1,000.000 silver some limes spoken ot as being In thaler pieces, and by Cord Odo Russell as being in hands for sale, together with the bar silver which has accumu lated with the Rclchbank. With more than 200 branches, It Is presumable that the Rclchbank mast always hold a considerable .quantity of silver coin in Us coffers. THE DRDATB continued. Bbri.ik, July 9.—The debate on the Tariff bill was continued In the Reichstag to-day. Wind* thorst defended Frankenstein’s motion to dis tribute the surplus revenue among the Federal Stales.

Frlcdcntbal declared tbnt his resignation as Minister of Agriculture was not caused by Frankenstein’s motion, which ho Intended to vote for. It is believed the views of Dr. Folk, lalu Min ister of Ecclesiastical Affairs, are the same as those of Friedcnthal on this question. niSMARCR’S SPEECH. Bismarck said the Liberals, by their negative altitude, had destroyed hts hope of effecting an understanding with them. He had resolved to support Frankenstein’s motion, because be could uob follow* the course proposed by the other parties in the Reichstag, as that course was but Utile removed from the Social Democ racy. He denied that the constitutional right ot Parliament to vote supplies had been'shaken. Ho said ho had fell himself abandoned more and more by the National Liberals, but ho had ' not - broken with any party. His con stant endeavor was to maintain German unit}*. lie considered that the financial pres sure had been greatly alleviated, and bo believed the present financial work would produce great blessings. Bismarck concluded by stating that ho would pursue hts work to tho end, whether be reaped hatred or love. Wlndthost stated that tho Centro party hod lollber asked nor obtained concessions. Their co-operation with the Conservatives depended on the conclusion ot the Kulkurkampf, but they hoped, with the Conservatives, to effect a revis ion of the May laws. CLAUSES ADOPTED. LONDON, duly o.—The Standard'* Berlin special announces that the Reichstag has, passed the motion that 130,000,000 marks from the an- nuol proceeds of Ihc tariff shall bo banded over to the Empire, and the rest distributed among the States. Tho Reichstag also resolved that the duty on tobacco shall not bo retrospective, ami that materials for shipbuilding, excepting metals, shall be free. A LIBERAL VICTORY. Dhoaich to Cincinnati Dnontrrr. Berlin, duly 8.— ‘The National Liberals, led In tho debate by Lasker, have at length won a par tial victory In Hie debate noon the new tariff. A supplementary hill was Introduced, Imposing a retrospective duty upon tobacco, hut after a strenuous fight It was defeated. The whole morcautlle Interest opposed It, each importer fearing that his turn was coming next. Herr Windhorst, tho Ultramontane loader, supported Lasker In his opposition to tho bill. Measures, however, have been taken providing an Imme diate provisional Imposition of tho now Import duties on tobacco and petroleum, which, by the terms of tho original hill, wero not to coma Into forco until January next. Tho uroposal to pro- vide for heavy duties upon Imports from coun tries discriminating against Germany led to a keen discussion, based chiefly upon technical grounds. Tho Government at last agreed to a compromise of 50 per cent, Instead of 100 per cent, inserted hi the original draft. Tho new tariff ou certain preparations from flour is to bo applied at once, on grain and wood In October, and upon oilier articles on the ttrat of Januory, as previously determined upon.

IRISH UNIVSRSITT DILL. In the House of Lords, the Government's Irith University Mil was read ft second time. The debate tended to show that the Govern ment may hereafter consent to additions to the hill tending to satisfy the claims of the Irish Catholics in record to - endowments. Thus Lord Cairns, while still opposing Vise direct en dowment of denominational Institutions, pointed out that the University of Loudon received some thousands yearly for the purpose ol re warding those who pass the examination, which Is ouen to all comers. lie said he was quite sure that If lire Senate of the proposed Irish University were to come to Parliament and sny that. In order ro advance education, it would bo advisable to oiler exhibitions and rewards, no objection ,would be taken on denominational grounds. The Tlmf* considers this Is a plain Intimation to the Catholics to get their University first and ask for money afterwards. This opens a oros poet of the settlement of the University ques tion within the lines of the Intermediate Educa tion act passed last year. London, July O.—The revolt In tho House of Commons Monday night of a email radical sec tion of Liberals, about thirty-six In number, against the Marquis of Hartlmnon's authority as leader of Uie Liberals, caused a counter dem onstration last night, when the Marquis, on ris ing to support a motion of the Government rela tive to a Question of privilege, was received with loud and prolonged cheers from the Liberal benches.

BY MAII<• the greer frontier. Vienna, Jane 25.—The Frrmdenbtatt pub lishes the text of the notes exchanged between Vienna and Paris respecting the mediation of. Uic Powers In the Greek question. The Cab- 1 met of Vienna, the Austrian note says; quit* . agrees with that of Paris In thinking that the moment has arrived for the Powers to take the matter In bund, and congratulates the French Cabinet on Us having assumed the initiative m the question. The Austrian Cabinet, therefore, accepts with satisfaction the proposal to Inform • Greece that her demand la compiled with, and to Invito Biroaltancoosly the two parties interested to none Plenipotentiaries with I n view to resuming negotiations in Con- 1 etuntlnoplc. The representatives of tho- Powers at the Porto would be instructed to* mediate. The Austrian Cabinet Is, however, of opinion that, Instead of prescribing to them U>- meet at once In a conference, It would be more to the purpose to allow them freely to discuss } among themselves the steps to be toKen, as auy*i difference of opinion which might arise wouldU frustrate every action of-the conference; and'! If once the collective action failed, the single Powers could with far less authority exert tbctn influence. Separate ocllon on the part of tho representatives Inspired by the same Intentions mid pursuing the same object would. In the opinion of the Austrian Cabinet, testify just as well as a conference to the concert of the Pow ers In the matter; while it this failed, It might still be possible to revert, and with greater ad vantage, to the idea of a conference. In bis answer, M. Wnddlngton explains tho motives directing him to propose a conference. As a combination based on historical precedent, a conference seemed best to corrcsnond with that Idea of common Interest which led to the Berlin Congress. That the mediation may con- duct to the desired end unity of action Is nec essary. Otherwise, the Plenipotentiaries of tho two Powers Interested w-ould naturally employ to the advantage catfh of his own side every dif ference, however slight. In tho declarations of the representatives of tho different Powers- Jt is, in tiie opinion of tho French Cabinet, of Im portance Hint there should not only bo a thor ough understanding among those who mediate, . but that Turkey and Greece abould oco this unanimity and bo able to discover no differ ence among ihcra. In proposing the conference, Ibe French Cabinet had no. Intention of giving It a solemn form, but only desired to givii the representatives of tho Powers the means .of more clearly manifesting the unanimity of .their • opinions. To., keep a protocol recording the opinion of everyone would bo useless—nay, dangerous. Only the resolutions unoulmously taken should be communicated to tho parties Interested. The diplomatic agents of-the six Powers might meet at the house of one of them and deliberate In the simplest man ner ns to the ndvlco they ought to give. A wide margin should bo left In respect of the form in which tho communications of their de cision should be made to tho Plenipotentiaries of Turkey uml Greece, It being understood that these communications he made by common ac cord. in one word, whatever the mode* of pro ceeding adopted, nil valuable result In tho opinion oi the French Cabinet Is likely to de pend on the unity of views, and the French Cabinet considers It an essential condition ot the mediation that the representatives of tho Powers In their relations with the Pleni potentiaries of Greece and Turkey act collect ively In the name of their Governments, which, by the Berlin Congress, have been Invested with the mission of catabllsnlng ncacc In the East by the regulation of the question of tho Greek Tho* French uoto Is dated tho 10th of May, uml at the end a desire Is expressed that tha negotiations begin In the first half of June.
