By the yote in the house on Monday it

Who will be the radical candidate tor
congress la tbJ district this tail U a
question that the avcraga radical poli
tician Is now asking. There is a
plentiful lack oi timber trout which to
select an available candidate, and yet
there axe s number ot gentlemen who
think they could lead the party to
victory, and either of whom would be
willing to make the race. Before the
duatbot toe late Jackson Frlck,wf Jones
bore, that gentleman was regarded as
the comirg man, but now that lie Is
font, the parly U lu a bad way, and to find
man, upon whom all the tactions can
be concentrated, is giving the managers
no little anxiety. True, then is Willis,

others whose names might be mentioned.
But lucre sue not to exceed two or three
out of all the gentlemen named who are
considered " available," and - against
whom one or the other of the factions
would not ' kick." A " hou'e dlvidd
against itself cannot stand," and tho rad
ical party in tbis district will require a
great deal of "conciliation" before it will

London, Jan. 'X, 4 a.m. -The general
feeling among the best Informed public
men bero Is one of mtenso anxiety not
only for the luture ol Ki.gland, but the
continent. It Is now acknowledged that
Eucsla has endeavored to obtain a st cret
understanding with Turkey relative to
cri:.MN'3 or tuu piBDiNrujt?,
and the tear is universal that such un
derstanding has been reached. It l well
known that Russia Is resolved on this
concession before all others, and yet she
suddenly on Monday lust communicated
to the British government her Intention
of submitting it to Europe. This ap
parent fairness Is believed to be diw to
certainly of carrying her point In any
COKOREU or ECROIKAX FOWEHS.
There Is also reason to tear that Russian
tioops will occupy Constantinople lor at
least one day, as Russian transports have
been ordered In readiness at Odessa and
other Black sea ports. A Rnssiau ado

A Berlin correspondent regards the
situation as extremely dangeroua to the
