At 9 a. m. w hen ex-Senator l bailee left Gen Grant be saul the General was growing weaker. His throat is filling up, iiut the main trouble is with the heart. The «lo« tors say he may «lie at any time. \t Î* 45 K* \ J»r Newman left Gen Grant's house. He was met by several re ps liters. an«l said : "The Genera* solemnly realizes the fact of his prohinge«! sufferings, but the strength oi his intellect and the «-almness and serenity of his uiiml are wonderful." A visit««- who left theb«iose at 1«» o'clock said that the general ha«l rallied, ami was conscious ami c«>tupose«l. lo a. tu. —Authentic information is the etle 4 't that Grunt is failing last, and that it is only a question of a few hours until the end is reached. He is gradually sinking, but is not suffering paiu. Ex-Senator Chaffee states that the su«l deu weakness of Gen. Grant this morning was the result of an affection of the heart. It is understood now 10:45 a. in. that the General has entirely lost the |s>wer of spee«-h. 12:30—A consultation of tien. Grant's physicians will lie held at 2 p.m., liel'ore which time uo more bulletins will lie issued. It is now stated that Gen. Grant is sitting up and is a trille more comfortable. 1:90— tien. Grant is still alive, but sink ing last. Neav York, April 1.—2:45 p. in.—Iu re sponse to inquiry, Col. Fred. Grant has just stated: "My father is very feeble, aud 1 think failing. I hardly think he will get through the night." Iirs. S. Harker ami Sands left Gen. I-rant's house after the consultation. Hr. Harker saiil that the General woulii live through the night if no serious complications should arise. At 2:45 p. m. tien. Grant was « isite«! by l)rs. Harker. >*'ands. Shra«lv and l>ouglas. His «ondition is an improvement upon that of the night. He has no pain iu swallowing: takes liquid food as usual: is free from accumulation in secretion in the nares. He has had no at ta« k of chok ing and no return of weakness. His pulse is still quiet and feeble, and his vitality is considerably repaired. He has not lieeu uncomcions at any time. Neav York. April 2. —6:40 a. m.—Gen. Grant has lieen resting ijuietly since 3 o'clock. The physicians are arranging for a continuous attendance. At 5:30 Gen. Grant was sleeping. At this hour the house is clortesl and everything quiet. 7:30 a. m.—Gen. Grant piassed a very uu quiet night. He was continually going Iront his tied to hi? chair aud back again. He was annoyed at times by attack* of coughing and accun^ulation of mneus iu his throat. His streugth has lieen main tained try nourishment ami stimulants, so that his pulse is reasonably sternly. At 5 o'clock a failure of the pulse was felt to such an extent that the laniily were ap prised, and all soon congregated in the sick room. He spoke ipuietly to all the members. Kv the administration of proper stimulants the General soon rallied, and is now sleeping in tied. Miifiiedi J. H. DOl'GLAH, M. I*. (1. F. 8IIRADV. M Ir. 11.30 a. m.—General Grant is still alive, but very low. An hour alter midnight Gen. Grant was asleep. At that time Col. Ere«l Grant was in doubt whether bis father would lie alive at «layhreak. He ha«l little hope that such would lie the case, hut iu that he was happily «lisappointeit. Hay daw net) ami Gen. tirant was still breath ing. The doubt of the son was based ujion the tact that the disease had spread through the mouth and aliove the palate in the patient's head, and the hack «if his throat was eaten luto. The gums on the right si«le of his teeth were also partly musutued, the jiosterior ami anterior arches in the right si«le were gone, the palate on the right side was raw, and though the General spoke feebly it was with difficulty and with .*car«-ely any use of his tongue. His anxiety was further augmented by the statement from Hr. Sbrady to the effect that unless there was a strong rally through the night, the Gen eral could hardly survive until early day break. The General reste«l with intervals of fretfulness. Drs. I Ktuglas* and Shrady were with him. Nkav York. April 2. — At 12 ill There was mi material change iu Gen Grant's condi tion. He was then very weak. 12:10—Gen. Grant is sleeping quietly and naturally in his arm chair. He rouses occasionally to cough and expe«-torate. which he does without apparent (tain or discomfort. He says be teel.* comfortable. His pulse is fuller, stronger, and more n it oral in volume. He is perfectly «rn scious. and replies lucid , y and tersely when a«l«.reused, lie is surrounded by bis fami ly ami kept perfectly quiet. At this in stant he is taking a cup of coffee. 12:40—There u a slight change for the lietter in Gen. Graut's condition. 2:45 p. m.—Jesse Grant says: At this hour father's condition is a little lietter than it was last evening. Hr. Fordyce Harker, at 3 o'clock, left the house, where he had beeu in consultation. Hr said : "When 1 went in Gen. Grant was asleep. He aw«ike ami recognize«l me." The doctor said that the General, during his visit, could not breathe through his none. He is of the opinion that the General will probably live through the night. His greatest danger, the doctor thinks, is to lie feare«! l*ctween four and live o'clock in the morning. Gen. Pent left the patient soon after, and he said h:s brother-in-law'll condition was about the same. Neav York. April 3. —l)r. Shrady has just said: Grant s condition is very good to-night, but it cannot lie told at what moment be will «lie The anodyne a«l ministered produced sleepiness. Dr. Shrady *ays he never saw so much exhaustion iu a man suffering with disease of such small local magnitude. This exhaustion, the doctor thinks, is due largely to resent shocks. The fall on the ice when leaving his carriage, neuralgia, the extraction ot teeth, business troubles, etc. New York, April 3.—At l:3o a. in. the following bulletin was issued: Grant is quite refreshed by his long sleep. He ha* taken nourishment twitse sim^c the last bulletin, and is now preparing lor a bath in tied. His pulse i| good. 1:45 p. m.— It islslieved that Gen. Grant is not so strong as he was this morning It is feared he may be «onsiderably w«irse A consultation of the Doctor* w ill lie held. 3 p. in.— tien. Grant is at this inoineut v«-ry comfortable. The uneasiness in his throat has lieen relieve«! by the reme«lies previously employed. He has taken his food regularly ami well. Heul It lied Scene. New York, April 3.—An inmate in the househ«ild of General Grant said to-night that the troe history of General Grant's "death-bed" scene ou Tnes«lay morning, w hen it was believed that the General was alMiut to breath liis last, wa* as follows: About 4 o'clock iu the moruiug the old *«il«lier suddenly gasp«-«! and piesented all symptoms of a death struggle, ami the family, physicians and Dr. Newman rushed to his side, and nearly all gave him up Drs. Douglas ami >hra«ly held a hurried consul tat ion, after which Dr. Hh r ady filled a hvptsleriuie syriuge full «if brand}' and injected the «mit cuts into the General s arm. The extreme ]iall<ii so cbaracteristi« of death gave way to a healthlul looking flush, and General Grant was given for a time a new lease of life. This promptness on the part of Dr. Shrady savt-tl the Gen eral autl prolongt-d his life. After the Gen eral recoveretl he pleasantly said to the Dr. who ha«l jierfortne«l the mgual serve : "Wei!, you've prolonge«! my agony Ibr a while." "Yes, answered Dr. Sliratly. "We w ill have yon with us some time yet." Dr. Newman was M «*\erjoye«l at seeing the General recover so rapidly, that he prayed fervently. The eyes of the latlies were soTused with tears of jo> when they saw that death was averteti. A minute's delay at the time would have made a great change ill the history of the case. It is nmlerstoisl that if General Grant dies his funeral takes pla«e in Washington and interment near there. Gen. Graat'» \ itnlity. New Vokk, April 2.—Aliout *:3B Gen. Grant intimate«! to Dr. Shrady that he w«iul«l like t«i takt his own temperature aud also see how his pulse was. Dr. Shrady gave him the thermometer, ami the Gen eral Tmt it iu his mouth and kept it then for aliont five minutes. The General also set his stop watch uml plm e«l it ou his lap. and p.it his second huger on bis pulse. At «•ue time the watch seeme«l aliout to slip to the floor, but the General retained the thermometer in his nnmtb ucvertbel«-*«. The General wa.* able to take his «iwu teinperatiir*- and nsceiviHl his pulsations, and this leaf was r«irard«sl by Dr. Sbraily as indicating that his intellectual percep tions wen- « leur ami unclouded. When Gen. Grant made the request for the ther mometer Dr. Shratly saiil : :"We must humor »«ich a man a* the General." at which the General »mile«!. At it p. iu Mr*. Grant, Mrs. Sortons ami scv-Tal other tueiiiliers of the family were aliout the sick man's Wdsitle. Mr. New man ami ex-Seuator Chaffee were also preseut. Dr. .Shrady regarded the ability of General Grant to exeiviae his mental faculties ami hands at the same time as very ho|ieful, and was quite sanguine at that luiur that the general would jiass a comparatively easy night.

WASHINGTON, April "*-The statutes re lating t«i the tenure of «iffice ami to the powers of removal have recently tieen the subject of much careful study, and not aloue by tlmse who were inspired by the hope of gaining or returning office. Wide differences in opinion have lieen «levek>jie«l, which are quite aside from the questions of party policy. The President's |»iwer ol appointment, "by ami with the cousent of the Senate," is«lerive«l front the constitu tion. and is alienable, but that instrument «•outers no jsiwer of removal ex< cpt by im plication. In the tenure of office act of Maroli, ist", the law-making jsiwer has given an interpretation of the implied |siw«-r of removal, iu *0 far as it relates to office* to which the appointments are made lor fixed terms, and expressly reserves to the Senate the right of refusing the ailvi«-e ami «onseiit 1 o «lie removal. The act eutitles the ap|N»iutee "to h«il«l such «•nice during the term lor which h« wa* a|q»nute«l, uuless »«unter removed by autl with the . misent of the Seuate. or by apjioiiitiuent with the like advice and con sequent of his successor.' The question arises whether, in the alisen«-e ot any similar provision relating to the offu-es to which mi lixe«l term i* attached, the Presi •lent has the power of removal without the advice au<) «'«mseut. All ot Cleve land'» appoint meiils to this class «il «iffiees. where lliev were mil vacant «« the iuemu lieui had nut resigned, have le-en, "vice —, to I»- re moved " Had be sent 111 a nomina tion, "vice-, removed, the constitu tional rigid ol 1 lie Executive t«i make the removal w ithout lh«?a«lvu e and consent ol the Senate would have been rained. The same act in another section confers upon the l'resi«leut the jsiwer to suspend, in hi* discretion, during re<-e** of th«; Senate, any civil officer of the government exce|it judg«-* ol the Fuite«l States courts, even «•ue tilling au office which has no lix«*«l term, ami to designate a suitable jierwin t«i jierforui the «luttes of the «iflice, bill no |Kiwer is «-oulerred to make alisolute re movals The President is reqitire«l to make nominations in the place of such as are tbn.» susjietid«-*l t«i the next session «il the Seuate. It is a question whether, in .a»e the Seuate tails *ir reluses t«i confirm sii«-li nominations, the original im unilieut is entitbsl to return. If it In* a«lmitted that he is so entitle«!, the question arises, has the 1 "resid en t the jsiwer to susjs-ml him again the next day or the next hour, as 111 another re«-ess of the Senate, aud thus practn-ally nullify the tenure til otlii-e act ? If the right of the Senate to jirevent re movals from offi«-es which have fixed terms by refusing its consent is admitted, the question arises, do«-* not the same right extend to all offices ex«-ept those which the President aud heail* of Depart ment» are authorized to fill withtmt reference to the Senate? It is saiil that eminent Republican Senators in exe«iitive **-sM»iou reieutly maiutaiue«! 1 in con net tiou with «ertain nominations made by the President to an offne w hich hail no fixed term, that it was the iluty of the Senate to cousider first the «jualilica tmns of the incumbent and «le« nle whether Ins removal was desirable, ami only in case of a decision in the affirmative to cou sitler the qualifications of the ajijxiiutee.

Several of the nominations which were not acted upon went over liecause the Senate was indispose«! to contiune a long «sinsti tutfoual discussion, to which they seeine«! likely to give rise.

It Would take many columns to «lem-ntie fully the samjiles of Montana's prislui-ts and re sources here displayed. THE MINERAL* OF MONTANA form the leailmg feature ol the «lisjilay, ami these are exhihite«l so as to give a nuire accurate ulea of their value than those of any other State orTerrit«iry. Ea«-h sample, and there sixty or seventy ot them, shows not only the ore. hot the nmulier ol dollars per ton it yiehl* in metal, ami they are all taken from PAYIN'«. MINES. The specimens of gold ore from Montana are the nehmt in the entire World's Expo sition. where every mining «-ountry on the continent has put its best hiot loremost, a »ingle nugget iu the collection containing $ 3 .s<si in virgiu gold.

Neav York, March 2. —The following is the official answer to the critfoisni* that have apjieared in the «Efferent jiajiers in regard to the h-a.»«- ol the Central Fai llie to the Southern Faillie Company: The new lease of the Central Facilic roa«l «loes not in any way interfere with it* relations to the Uniteil States government or jeopor adize in the least the jiayment into the sinking fand created by an ;u-t ot Congress. For several years the government traus jKirtation accounts over all its lines have ex«-ee«led its mjuirements under the Thuruian act. so that uo further «-alls have been made upon the company. Under the new arrangement the mail will simply con tinue to do the same transjiortation as here tofore. Thi- less«-e». the Southern Farific Company, assume the jiayment of all inter ests, taxes, sinking funds ami the tired charges, including the annual obligations inijiosed by the Thurman a«fl, and in ad dition the minimum of ÿl,2IN),lt(Mj. in creased to $3,6UO.UU0 if earn«-d, is to tie jiaid as rental over and above the other disliursements. The government thus has the wcurity of the South« rn Pacific Co. as well as the Central Facific for its claims, ami in this respect is lietter secured. Kailroad Affairs.
