General Grant's Testimonial*.
Washington. February 3. —The Presi
<leut to-day transmitted to the llooae the
Ibllowmg message :
To Un lionne of Riprem ntatiren ;
I have apectul pleasure in laving be tore
Congress the generous offer made by Mrs.
(•rant to give to the government in per
petual trust the swords and military and
civil) testimonials lately l>elong<ng to Hen.
tirant, a copy ol the deed of trust and of a
letter addressed to me by Win. }{. Vander
bilt, which will explain the nature and mo
tive of this offer.
The appreciation ol («en. Grant's achiev
un nts and the recognition ot his just fame
have in part taken shape in numerous me
mentoes and gills which, w hile dear to him,
poss«*aa lor the nation exceptional mterest.
These relics of great historical value have
passed into the hands of another whose
considerate action restored the collection
to Mrs. («rant as a life trust ou condition
that at the death of Gen. Grant or sooner,
at Mrs. Grant's option, they shall become
the property of the government as set forth
m the accompanying papers In the ex
erciseof this option thus given her Mrs.
Grant elects tlytt the trust shall forthwith
determine and asks that the government
designate a .suitable place of deposit ami
a responsible custodian for the collection.
The nature of this gilt [and the value of
these relics, which the generosity of pri
vate citizen, joined to a high sense of pub
lic regard, which animates Mrs. Grant,
have thus lteen placed at the disjiosal of
the government, aud demand a full and
signal recognition, on behalf of the Nation,
at the bunds ot' its representatives. I
.........re ask Congress to take suitable
action, to accept the trust and provide for
its secure custody, and at the [same time
recording the appreciative gratitude of the
)>eople of the United States to the donors.
In this cuunection I may )iertinently advert
to the pending legislation in the Senate
aud House of Representatives looking to
the national recognition of General
Grants emiueut services by providing
means lor his restoration to the army on
the retired list; that Congress by taking
su 1 h action will give expression to the al-
most universal desire of the people of this
nation, ami I earnestly urge the passage
of an act similar to Senate hill No. 2,730,
which, w hile uot interfering w ith the con-
stitutional prerogative of appointment, will
enable the President in his discretion to
uoruinai« General Grant as General on the
retired list.

Negotiation« Closed.
Ft. i l. and,O re., February I—The Cana
dian I '.ici tic Railway closed negotiations
hi re to-day, whereby they will Live four
bas** of operation until their line is com
plet< Tbeie is at this time a gap of 237
between the eastern aud western divisions.
All of it is very heavy mountain work,
through the Selk.tk range. The upper
Columbia river bases this gap, leaviug 67
miles to the west and 170 to the east. The
river isuu.igable from Fort Colville, in
Washington Territory, north to where the
railroad will crons it, a distance of 1*0
miles, and w ill be used as a channel for
construction supplies, thus creating two
new liases of operation. A contract was let
to-day to transjiort supplies over this new
route, aud a steamer will lie built at once.
This portion of the upper Columbia river
was uavigated for one year by the old Ore
gon Steam Navigation Company during the
mining excitement of 18(50. ami it is one of
the surprises of the Pacific coast carrying
trade that use should ever lie found for
steamer navigation on the river, which has
lain dead for twenty years. With these
new facilities for lauding supplies the com
pletion of the Canadian Pacific will lie
hastened at least one year.
Tbe Rrinah imperial Federation.
London, February 5.—The Pod combats
the position taken hy Johu I '.right on the
British itnj**nal federation. It urges the
close knit Dug of Canada with Knglaud to
insure protection to Englaud's increasing
commerce in the China seas against the
possible encroachments hy France aud Kus- ,
sia England has no territory in the Pacific
region aud aspires to none. Tbe comple
tion of the Canadian Pacific railway will
provide England with a new route to Hong
Kong occupying but little over a mouth,
sixteen days les« than the Suez canal route.
The uew route would enable England to
land troo|w in China at least ten days in
advance of troops starting at the same
time from Marseilles or Russian troops
from ( kiessa.
Donation from Japan.
Washington, February 5.—The Presi
dent transmitted to the House a commu
nication from the Secretary of State rela
tive to the Japanese government's offer to
douate a valuable piece of land at Tokio to
the United States in fee simple for legation
purposes In his message of transmittal
tbe President says :
"I earnestly recommend that the Execu
tive may be immediately authorized to ac
cept the gift in the name of tbe United
States and to tender his imperial majesty's
government suitable expression of this
government's thanks for the generosity |
which prompted the presentation of so de
sirable a site of ground. This step cannot
hnt lie favorable to the United States in
every honorable way while disinterested
motives of a friendly foreign government
deserve from the United States pro|ier
and just recognition. '

A Laughing Plant.
This is not a flower that laughs, hut one
that creates laughter, if the printed stories
of travelers are to be believed. It grows
in Arabia and is called the laughing plant
liecause its seeds produce effects like those
produced by laughing gas The tlowere
are of a bright yellow and the seed-pod*-,
are soil and woolly, while the seeds re
semble small black beans, and only two or
three grow in a pod. The natives dry and
pulverize them, and the powder, if taken
in small doses, makes the soberest person
lieliav e like a circus clown or a madman,
for he will dance, sing, and laugh boister
ously, am! cut the most fantastic capers,
autl iie in an uproariously ridiculous con
dition for about au hour. When the ex
citement t eases the exhausted exhibitor of
these untie* (alls asleep, and when he
awakes he has uot the slightest remem
brance of his frisky doings.

Inland Transportation.
New York, FebJaary 7.—At a meeting
of the Chamber of Commerce to-day, the
question of Inland transportation was re
ferred to hy Cornelius N. Bliss, who moved
a reconsideration of tbe motiou adopte«! at
a previous meeting, which recommend«! a
change in the uietho«! of collecting customs
in the interior. He thought in the pas
sage of the resolution the Chamber bad
stultified itself.
Jackson I. Schultz, in speaking on the
question, said h«* thought it probable they
would hear something about their own
« ustom house w ith a week or two. When
our committee wits in session, said Mr.
Schultz, I asked tor an explauatiou of tbe
manner in which goods were brought into
the countiy, and a little fellow said : *1
will explain. I take a sample under my
arm and go to the ditl'ereut merchants anti
ask them for the price, when 1 get one 1
cable to Lyons and the go«>ds are sent on."
Mr. Bliss—' How is it that these foreign
agents go home after three years in this
«•oiintry and buy a castle on the Rhine?"
Schultz replietl that it was the"sweating"
process
Mr. Waters attcuiptetl to read from a
pamphlet when Bliss snatched it from his
hand, sayiug he objected to it lieiug read.
Bliss' motion to recousider was then
carrie«!, «lespite tbe protests of Schultz, who
claimed that it was not right nor courteous.
The text of tbe motiou reconsitleretl is as
follows:
Rewired, That in the opinion of this
Chamtier the system of Inland tramqiorta
1 1 *»ti within the Unite«! States is unjust to
the sealioard men hauts and detrimental to
tbe revenue, and should lie abolished.
l'«x)l Commissions, Fink, when asked
to-«lay what should he «lone to further
satisfy the merchants, who complain of his
decision in the matter of the diversion of
freight, and who a$k tb it a written guar
antee W given that no more freight lie di
verted in that way as complained of,
said,"no written guarantee will he given.'' "1
have promised that there shall lit to more
cause for complaint, and with this I think
the merchants will he satisfied.

Father Cronin, editor of the Catholic

aud was to a certain extent unaccountable
for his acts and words, and the wrongs had

A Preacher*» Ntory.
London, Feb. 6.— Arabia seems to have
had something to do with bringing about
Gordon's downfall, if the story tofil to day
hy a prominent London clergyman is to
lie credited. This clergyman publishes
letter in the afternoon edition of the I«on
don (iloljt, about meeting in that city last
Novemlier an Egyptian who had been a
prefect of police under Arabia. The pre
feet and preacher Jecame well acquainted
and on Christmas they had a long conver
sation concerning the Egyptian situation.
The clergyman expressed the hope that
Lord Wolseley would s«x*n enter Khar
tourn. At this the prefect laughed, and
said that Gen. Gordon was pretty safe
where he was. ami that Wolseley would
not enter Khartoum. Wilfretl Blunt, the
prefect continued, was the only living
man able to efl«*ct for England a peacefiit
solution of the Soudan «piestion ; El Mahdi
had confidence in him and would accept
him as a mediator. So far as Lord Wol
seley 's « xpe«liti<in was {N>n«*erned. the pre
fect saul, El Mahdi had arranged to allow
it to approach Khartoum without any reg
ular opposition. The prophet might fight
at *r near Shendy, but if h<* <li«l it woufii
merely lie for the nurptise of tempting
Wolseley on into further and greater trials;
on no account, however, wtiufil El Mali«It
fight a decisive battle until the Briti-h
f «irres were massed.
