TELEGRAMS REPORTED SPECIALLY FOR THE HERALD BY WESTERN UNION TELEGRAPH COMPANY. UNITED STATES. New York, May 7.—The Herald states that Granville's reply to the American proposé tion, "that if the British Government would propose to establish an international princi ple covering liabilities of neutrale for conse quential damages," was considered at meeting ol the President, Cabinet and lies publican members of the Congressional Fors eign Committees. The proposition from Gran ville is, that the United Btates withdraw its claims for Consequential damagesGreat Britain stilj maintaining that they are outs side the provisions of the treaty—and that in future wars, whenever either nation is belligerent and the other neutral, the neun tral shall not be held responsible for indis rect or consequential damages in claims aris. ing in similar manner and under similar cir. cumstances with the claims to which the Treaty of Washington refers. This was a surprise to the President, who, finding that diplomacy had failed, culled in the Repub lican members of the Congressional For eign Committees, to whom he slated hie anxiety to save the treaty, but not at the sacrifice of any principle and having failed to obtain such a proposal from Eogiand us was expected, be was in favor of withdraws ing Schenck's instructions and leaving the whole matter as at first placed before the Geneva Tribunal. The Republican members of the House Com rnittee stated that they thought the,question of consequential damages should never have been inserted in the case', but they were there, and the honor of the nation is thus involved. The commttee were willing to do anything consistent with their position, to strengthen the President in any stand that it may be necessary to brake. The President said that it was now for him to say what should be the final attitude of the country. While recognizing the au thority conferred upon himself, he was anx lou« that the immediate representatives of the people should know the true condition of affaire, and he relied on the committee to stand by him in case it should be deemed oecessary to abandon the treaty. In re sponse to a remark as to this extraordinary measure, he said to the committee that they were not called in for ad vice, but for support Ambler, of Ohio, responded by saying, that if the support of the committee was expected, it was but just that the Democratic mem bers of the committee should also have been invited to attend the meeting, and he (Am bler) would not Imperil the interests of the Republican party by advocating a policy in imical to the success of that party. Willard agreed wirh Ambler, and declared that this mistake of the Administration could not be fastened on the Republican party by any measure of expediency This terminated the Interview. After the withdrawal of the committee, the President and Secretary Fish decided that Granville's proposition Is unacceptable and that we cannot recede from the case as presented at Geneva, and telegraphed Schenck to that effect. New York, May 8.—The Democratic Na tional Executive Committee met this after noon at the residence ol Aug Belmont. Eight States were unrepresented, including Califor nia and Oregon. A call was issued for the National Convention at Baltimore on July -------- ----------— ---------— -. 9th, inviting the co-operation of all Conserv af ltru •llh.il« ative citizens Minneapolis, May 9.—The Republican Stale Convention, held here yesterday In structed the delegates to Philadelphia to vote lor Grant. St. Lou is,"May 0.—The Westliche Valks blatt, the German organ of Northwest Mie sour. comes ont against Greeley and Brown. Indianapolis. May 8.—It Is authoritlvely announced that Senator Hendricks is not committod to support the Cincinnati nomi neee ; but will be governed by the action of the Democratic National Convention. Chicago, May 10.—The Tribune's Wash ington special has a sensational story to the effect that-a plot has been discovered which comprehends the .defeat of Graut by the Philadelphia Convention., and the substitu tion of Senator Morton as the candidate for President. It is alleged that ex-Governor Burbank, of Idaho, a brother-in-law of Mor ton, now residing at Omaha, has been send ing confidential letters to the delegates already appointed to the Convention, in which the plan is set forth and their co-ope ration solicited. The dispatch saya that one of these letters was forwarded by a delegate to his Senator, who will lay it before the President to day. While there is reason to believe that some such letters have been written by Burbank, there ia also reason for asserting that they were written - without Morton's knowledge, and that he was greatly displeased at the un warrantable use of his name tn them. Not withstanding all runlors of combination and plots to defeat the -re«nominatiqn of Grant, it is noticeable that no Republican newspa per has so far, even indirectly, favored or hinted at such a movement. The St. Louis Republican publishes a list of one hundred Democratic papers of the oountry, East and West, North and South, which have expressed themselves upon the Cincinnati nominations, and it classifies them as follows : Ia favor of a straight-out nomination by the Democratic Convention, eleven ; including the Washington Patriot, New York World, Pittsburg Post, Philadel phia Age, Baltimore Gazette, Savannah News, Boston Post, Detroit Free Press. Those that speak well of the ticket, but await the action of the convention, twenty four, including the Albany Argus and Al bany Times, Louisville Courier-Journal, Chi cago Times, Richmond Enquirer, Cleveland Plaindealer, New York Express, Mobile Register. Those that commend the ticket to the support of the Democrats, 65, including the Cincinnati Enqnirer, New Orleans Times and New Orleans Picayune, Illinois State Register, Dubuque Herald, Richmond Whig, lrfe'u Citizen and Irish Democrat of New York, Indianapolis Sentinel, Buffalo Courier, and the three Democratic papers in St. Louis. The majority of the last named class are country papers, many of them weekly. A Washington special says the opponents of the change.in the tariff bill are preparing to make another charge against it in the form of a abort bill, sweeping away the In ternal Revenue taxes by wholesale and re» ducing the income government tax so mate rially that it will be expedient, if not neces sary to let the present tariff stand. It is said that an attempt will be made to ran the a hill through on Monday next under suspen sion of the rules. iTUe Evening Journal's Washington spe c!a* cays that the last from Ear) Granville, received by cable, vesterday, is Dot acceptable to our Government. The ne gotiations are still progressing. Fish is still very confident that matters will be amicably settled, and not only the Ministry bat the British Parliament cannot afford to let the treaty fail. Others, however, equally famil iar with the pending negotiations, and some who belong to the foreign Committee Con gress, are of the opinion that the Treaty is virtually dead The Chicago Tribune seconds the sugges tion of the Louisville Courier Journal that Greeley should retire from the editorship of his paper during the campaign. A Washington special Bays : Should the next exchange of dispatches end unfavor ably for arbitration, it is in contemplation to issue immediate orders lor the recall of the United States Agent and Counsel ap pointed to conduct our case at Geneva, in time to prepare for the next session of Con gress an exhaustive statement and vindica tion of the action of our Government prior to and under the treaty, for the double pur pose of setting the country and Administra tion right before the world, and conserving our interests against such future measures and opportunities as may arise fora satisfac tory settlement of the difficulties between ourselves and England.

Insu rance one hundred and seventy-five thous and dollars. Washington, May 9.—A number of Con ressmen express the opinion that there Will e do tariff bill passed during the present session ; but that the internal revenue laws will be changed so as to retain the taxes only on spiritnons, fermented and malt li quors, banks and tobacco. They also sav that there is a prospect that Congress will adjourn on the 29th of May. The President approved the bill to regu- late the elections In Washington and Idaho Territories.

Thlrtv.fivs hundred insurgents in that province have surrendered to the loyal forces. The news from all other poids where there are bands of Carlists, is favor able for a speedy restoration of the govern ment's authority. Serrano shoota all the insurgents he cap tures who have deaerted from the Spanish army to the cause of Don Carlos, but spares all other prisoners. The government troops attacked a band of Carlists under Palacios, and completely dev tested them. Twelve insurgents were killed. Halifax, N.

It in reported that the Gov ernment je displeased at the action of France in allowing the remaining Carllsta to escape into the French territory, and that Govern ment ia queetioned thereto. of a A REVOUTHW IN TF.LEdRAPHIÜKi 1 coming revolution in the telegraph busi ness is rumored. It is said that a new system of transmitting news will soon be put in ope ration between New York and Washington, the operations of which will make all present systems seem insufferably slow and superflu ous. Telegraphgnachines will be distributed to individuals, who by a little practice will acquire the ability to stamp their messages on a slip of perforated paper in the telegraph cypher. Tills when taken to the general office will be forwarded to its destination, and then by another machine printed before delivery to the person for whom it is intended. The whole time of the writing, transmission and printing of a message of one hundred words will be but one minute and twenty seven seconds, and messages of that length are to be forwarded at the low rate of twenty cents. The capacity of a telegraph wire in the present system is said to be about 6,000 words in ten hours, but by the new process it is claimed 60.000 words an hour can be trans mitted on one wire without confusion. One printing machine can transcribe at the rate o£ 8,000 words an hour. All the work ing expenses of the new system are repre sented to be much less than those of the old one. The cost of a machine for indicting messages will be but two or three dollars, so that any merchant, banker or newspaper office can have one for its own business, and one operator can do as much business with one wire as a hundred operators with a hun dred wires now do. The public will rejoice with reason if the practicability of such an improvement of communication shall be es tablished. If there is, indeed, neither justice nor common sense in the indirect claims of the United States for damages sustained by the depredations of the rebel cruisers, then do the apprehensions of the British government seem childish in the extreme. If we are correct in thus interpreting the views of Great Britain in the premises, it is little less than insulting to the Commissioners to refuse to submit to tlieir determination claims of an imaginary and altogether unsubstantial char acter. Either there is a validity in the Amer ican case, which the British government has not the courage to confront, or there is a dis trust in the Commissioners which that body would be quite justified in resenting. Paris is full of discharged Communists, which is not strange, considering the thou sands of men who were needlessly arrested and imprisoned. But Paris is afraid of these men. They cannot find employment in pri vate houses, and numbers of them are con sequently forced to be idle. The Prefect of Police has just signalized himself by making the brilliant decision that all persons who shared in the insurrection of 1871 shall be debarred from entering any occupation in which a police license is required. This wise decree throws out of employment about all the rest of these discharged prisoners, since nearly every one of the lower occupations require such a license. A better measure to hasten another revolt could not be devised. The idle bands, denied honest toil, will turn to Satan's work very readily. The London Economist gives figures to show that England has lately increased her pur chases and investments In all parts of the world, the fonner being partly due to the rise in prices of many of her articles of import, and the latter to her various foreign loans. The amount of bullion moved from England to Bombay, Calcutta, Singapore, Hong Kong, Sbanghae, Cape and West Africa, Spain, Portugal and Brazil, was 10,552,000 pounds sterling In 1871, which was over ten times more than the amount to the same places In 1870.

Fellow Citizen *:—I learn from personal and political friends at home, that my enemies are Industriously circulating a report throughout the Territory—that I am coming back to run as an Independent candidate for Congress." I brand this statement, by whomsoever uttered, a MONSTROUS FALSEHOOD, so far as it relates to any " Independent " candidacy on my part I have never for one moment thought of pursuing any auch course. That I will return home at as eorlv a day as oosslble, la certain. And that I shall be a candidate for the nomination for Delegate to the 43d Congress, Is equally certain —subject, however, TO THE DECISION OF TIIE DEMOCRATIC TERRITORIAL CONVENTION. In thus announcing myself a candidate, I appeal directly to the democrath#voters of the Territory. 1 appeal, fellow Democrats, to you to attend the Primaries In yonr several precincts, and to see to It, particularly, that the delegates to your County and Territorial Conventions are composed of men who can be neither bullied nor purchased into a betrayal of the important trusts conflded to them—delegatee that will faithfully carry out tho wishes of the conrtitueuciee they represent. Every Democrat lu the Territory is perfectly familiar with the means resorted to—at the last Convention—to accomplish my defeat, and thwart the expressed desires of a large majority of the Democracy ot Montana. And I merely ask at roc* hand«, that the »wrong" then done be "righted" now. To the people, and the frople only, du 1 make this appeal for a reversal of the action of last year * Con vention.
