She left the latter place June 21st, at 2 p.m. First two days had thick fog and smooth seas, with light southerly airs. Remainder of passage overcast and cloudy weather, with moderate E.N.E. hreese. The last two days sqaally, with light showers. The Australia brought 38 cabin and 136 steerage passengers; also, 814 tons freight. , When the steamer came into the harbor the anchor was dropped before she touched the dock, and her Chinese passengers taken in boats to the quarantine grounds. This necessitated a delay of over an hour. The Australia gailsfor San Francisco July ih et noon. When the debate was resumed on the Crimes bill J une 17th in the House of Com mons, London, Henry Fowler, Liberal, moved an amendment requiring, before enforcing clause G, which deals with pro claiming dangerous associations, that consent of both Houses of Parliament be obtained. This, he said, the most danger ous clause of the bill, ought to be resisted to the utmost. MAJESl'7'S ' Balfour opposed the amendment, saying it would only lead to waste of time of 1 ar liament. Dillon declared it to be the universal be lief in Ireland that the bill was mainly di rected against the National League. Fowler's amendment was reiected by 233 to 121. Several more amendments having been disposed -of, the Chairman put the question whether the clause should stand as part of the bill. Sir Charles Russell entreated the House to consider the gravity and objectionable character of the clause. While he was speaking the hour of 10 arrived, the Min isterial benches rapidly filled, members pouring in from the lobbies. The ?arnell ites simultaneously arose and left the Hous the Chairman twice calling upon them to resume their seats. Amid confu sion a division was ordered and the claVitc was adopted by 332 to 1!3. After the division the Gladstonians turned to hear the result and then left the House altogether, the majority having paired. For the remainder of the evening not a single raruellite voted; all left the precincts of the House immediately. The Unionists voted solidly with the Govern ment. As the Unionists were the only oc cupants of the Opposition benches after division. Chamberlain, Lord Hartington and Mr. Henesge sitting isolated on the front bench, many Conservatives crossed to the Opposition benches and sat down. Major Saunderson was loudly cheered on taking Healy's seat. Quiet was restored in half an hour. The remaining clauses were put and car ried without comment, and the bill passed tne committee stage, the Conservatives again cheering. The report stage of the bill was fixed for the 27th inst. A conference was held between the Glad stonians and Parnellites at night at which the course to be pursued relative to the Crimes bill was decided upon. The more violent of the Parnellites agreed to aban don the obstruction course in deference to Gladstone's wishes. The Parnellites will move the remainder of their amendments during the report of the stage of the bill. In the House of Commons June 20th Sir Henry Holland, Secretary of State for the Colonies, replying to Mr. Howard, said that Sir Samuel Rowe, Governor of Sierra Leone, had informed the Government that the conference held between the French and natives had resulted in tha hoisting of the French flag at Bariboo, on the Gambia river. While not under a British protecto rate, he said that Bariboo was within the sphere of British influence and the native chiefs were under treaty obligations to England. The establishment of a French protectorate would have an important bearing on British influence in that dis trict. Sir Henry said that dispatches were being exchanged between the British and French Governments in regard to the matter. The Berlin "Germania" published, July 20th, the text of a speech made by the Pope recently to the German pilgrims going to Jerusalem. After an appeal to them to have confidence in the wisdom and tact of the Vatican comes the fol lowing significant passage: "The present modus vivendi for Prussian Catholics does not include all the demands of the Papal See. The church in Prussia will yet ob tain all its liberty. The Vatican continues to negotiate in this direction." The sec ond Chamber of the Diet of Hesse has passed the Ecclesiastical bill settling the conflict between Hesse and the Vatican. While a party of 250 pilgrims werecross ingthe Danube, near Paks, June 20th, the boat was caught in a hurricane and cap sized. Later particulars show that the re cent ferry accident at Paks on the Danube was much worse than was at first reported. The boat was fearfully overloaded, having 400 persons on board. It is stated that the boatmen were intoxicated. The panic on board was fearful. The Atbe Szep talfszpies blessed the pilgrims, jumped overboard and swam ashore with a child, but died an hour after from rupture of a blood vessel. The bodies recovered give evidences of fearful death struggles in thfir tattered clothes and distorted faces. It is estimated that 300 persons were drowned. Over 200 bodies have been recovered. The recognition of bodies by friends on shore is attended with heartrending scenes. The $200 championship of the world light-weight prize fight between Jim Car ney, English champion, and Jimmv Mitchell of Philadelphia, came off June 19th at New York.

Among the twelve yachts that started none are of first-class reputation, except the Genesta. Three others which are well known, however, are the Sleuthhound, the Aline and the Gwendoline. A host of craft of all sizes and descriptions thronged the channel when the race started. The weather was brilliant, with a moderate wind blowing. On June 18th the Genesta passed Wick, Scotland, at 3 o'clock in the afternoon, and the Sleuthhound at 8 in the evening. The Genesta passed Pentland Firth and was rounding Duunet Head at 10 o'clock.

There is a belief among the officials and employees of the Interior Department at Washington that Secretary Lamar will be J Wood on the Supreme Bench of the United States.

Those who think he will be appointed are selecting his successor as Secretary of the Interior. Judge Manning of Louisiana, now Minister to Mexico, is mentioned as a possible nominee. Senator George of Mississippi is also ambitious, and is said to have the entire bar ofeMississippi behind him. The name of Howell Ed mund Jackson of Nashville, Tenn., the present United States Circuit Judge of the Sixth Judicial District, is also prominently mentioned. Brooks, alias Maxwell, the murderer of Preller, is to be hanged. The Supreme Court refused to reverse the decision of the court below. The prisoner was unoffi cially notified by his attorneys June 20th, and was very much dejected, and said his trial was a farce.

The police do not attach much importance to this arrest, but in view of the approaching jubilee there is a great scare, and the police are unusually vigilant. A sensation has been caused in French high life by the successful kidnapping of Countess Campos, recently divorced from the Due de la Torre. The kipnappers wore masks, and seized the Countess as she was walking in the Bob de Boulogne. They eluded pursuit.
