An armed conflict over the pop^^ular demand for a revision of the Hclgian^constitution, resulting in a revolution aud^placing iu the power of the allies of^France, is so within tbe bounds of proba^^bility that French papers are already in^^dulging in surmises as to what Germany^would do in tbe event of the monarchy In^Belgium being submerged.

Whatever internal convulsions^man occur in Belgium It is the official^opinion here that Germany will absolutely^bold aloof unless tbe French connive at^assisting tbe revolution.

NewYork, April 15.-An^ceived at the sub-treasury at New York^to-day for the suspension of tbe Issue of^gold certificates in accordance with tba^provisions of tbe act of congress of July^12. UW-\ which says that whan tbe gold coin^or bullion bold in tbe treasury for tbe re^^demption of United States notes falls^below tUW.OOO.UOO tbe Issue of certificates^shall cease. The gold cert iflcates ia com^^mon use are tboae Issued under the set of^July 1-'. 1882. Tbe acting assistant treas^^urer in charge of the sub-treasury said:^^This step on tbe part of tba secretary of^the treasury simply means that be is^carrying out tbe provisions of tbe law. It^does not mean that tbe government will^receive deposits of gold coin and^refuse to pay back in kind.^Any one wbo deposits gold coin here will^receive legal tender notes. In other^words, instead of iasuing gold deposit cer^^tificates, which are necessarily redeem^^able In gold, the treasury will issue legal^tender notes, for which gold will always^be paid if demanded. Theonly difference which tbe stopping;^of the certificates makes Is that tbe treas^^ury department will not issue them for^gold as it lias been doing. The secretary^is merely anticipating tbe withdrawal of^gold which will probably be made for ship^^ment for next Tuesday's German stesmer.^There is no reason for uneasiness because^the step wss taken by tbe department. It^te tbe first time that the issue of certio^^rates has been suspended because it is tba^flrst time that the roserve has almost^reached the $lOn.oiil,O00 point with imme-^diote export expected.
