The Royal Mail steamer Alameda ar rived early yesterday morning from San Francisco, with dates to the 23d inst. Following is a summary : Irish Affairs. At a meeting of the Executive Com mittee of the Irish National League, neld in Dublin, September 13th, Henry Lanoucnere, Cashel Wright, J. T. Brun ner and Robert Leak, all English, and Members of Parliament, were elected as members of the National League. A magnificent demonstration took place at Dublin September 14th in the Rotunda. The round room was crowded and overflow meetings were held. The Lord Mayor presided. A deputation irom tne English Home Rule Union was received with the greatest enthu siasm as it filed on to the platform in, jjiupsucu me resoiuuon 0 j i . oitne evening. "That this meeting of citizens of Dublin gladly accords its warmest welcome to the deputation from the English Home Rule Union, as a pledge of the progress and practical sympathy with which the cause of Ire land is now obtaining among the peo ple ot Great Britain." The motion was seconded by Justin McCarthy, M. P. and carried enthusiastically. At a conference of Irish landlords held in Dublin September 15th resolutions were adopted by a unanimous vote de- nying that the present rates prevailing I in Ireland were nnnrflvo . tt.n I IX J v 11 Id I reasonable abatement had been refused. Several Extremist Deputies propose ini "The landlords in Ireland." it is further I tiating a movement in the Chamber of maintained, "have rendered important aid to Irish agriculture, and do not, as I alleged, neglect their duties towml either their property or the communitv I We deplore the alienation existing in Ireland between landlords and and we desire to restore amity. TJie re cent evictions were forced on us through 'political advisers." In conclusion, the resolutions demand the Government to .speedily and fully settle the land ques tion in Ireland on just terms to all parties concerned. . Dillon, in an interview September 18th, said that it was impossible to deny the gravity of the situation. The out ook for the coining winter was a gloomy me. Balfour was apparently deter mined to get all the Nationalist leaders ;nto the clutches of the law, and he jvould not be surprised if in a month or io the majority of the leaders, including jiimself, were found picking oakum, phe Governments persistence in en prcing the Coercion Act would be cer tain to lead to trouble, i ; John Dillon presided at a great meet ig held in the Limerick Town Hall Sep :?mber 20th, under the auspices of the Rational League. The hall was crowded, jillon made the speech of the day, and Welt at length on the case of Editor "Brien of the "United Ireland." Dillon lid O'Brien would undoubtedly be con emed a felon, and if so he would have le sympathy of the whole civilized orltl. "The Government must jiot," illon continued, "think they can crush ;e League by any such means as those sorted to in the prosecution of O'Brien, 'ach arrest of that kind would add but :3sh courage and spirit to the people of island in the struggle for home rule and Urease the gulf of separation between e landlords and the populace, and put jw fuel into the fire now burning." United States of America, Dillon de Lred, was now back of the great Irish bvae Rule movement. William O'Brien states that in the snt of his being sentenced to imprison jnt'he will absolutely refuse to wear :P son garb or perform menial offices as protest against the treatment of politi- prisoners as common culprits. Mexico and Guatemala. v dispatch from the city of Mexico, Member 22d says : There is a good deal uneasiness in iolitical circles regarding j ramored attempt of Guatemala to se ;e the support of the United States i ernment as against Mexico. It is here that such a step would do much to disturb the pleasant relations existing between Mexico and the United States, which at present are inducing heavy in vestments of American capital here. The case against Guatemala is this : In sults have been offered to members of the Mexican Legation there which it is said have not been properly atoned for, and while the Mexican Government is not acting offensively toward Guatemala, it is demanding just compensation for the assaults on officers of the Legation. The fight in Guatemala is largely a clerical conflict and assumes the aspect of a re- ligious war, and many politicians here sav that thev do not believe the United States will interfere in so delicate a mat ter. German Politics. It is asserted that the interview be tween Bismarck and Kalnoky, Septem ber 17th, means a new phase of the Bulgarian question. It means a check on Russian intervention, the neutrality of Europe toward Prince Ferdinand leav ing him to his own resources, to sink or swim, and freedom of action for the Bul garians, short of anarchy or troubling the peace of neighboring States. Emperor William and the Prince and Princess William, Prince Frederick, Prince Leo pold and General Von Moltke leave Stet tin to-day and arrive in Berlin this even ing. The Emperor's sojourn in Stettin was an unqualified success, the report of the fainting fit being erroneous. The re turn of the Imperial party to Berlin fin ally disposes of the reports that the Emperor would have an interview with the Czar. The success of the German candidates at the elections for members of the Bohemian Diet places the Czech majority face to face with a compact body of German deputies, armed with a spe cial mandate to insist on the division of Bohemia into two administrative dis- tricts, in accordance with differences in religion and language. General Bon lander. General Boulanger, in an address to the officers of his command after the mune uvers by his corps at Clermont Fer- rand, September 18th, strongly urgedthe necessity of giving wider exercise of the offensive tactics which were proper to the trench army. He concluded his re marks as follows : " We have to-day more need than ever of the qualities of a war rior. No, the hour has not yet struck for the disarmament of the people of all Eu rope. It is madness to believe it and a crime to say it, for it points to peace at an' price, as the goal to which our coun try should aspire, and our eneniies, who often appraise us at our real value better tnan we do ourselves, know well that we have not got as far as that. More than that, we must continue to work. It is for France.", French A flair. v. A dispatch dated Paris, September 19th, says: M. Rouvier, Prime Minister, deliver a political discourse before tne reopening of the Chamber of Depu- ties- Tnis discourse will be a reply to the recent manifesto of the Count of Paris: Deputies to secure the expulsion from ranceof all the Orleanistand Bonapart- lst pnnces. Deputies Basly and Came- n"na will again propose that all the prop- ertl of t,ie above-mentioned princes that can be discovered in trance shall be con fiscated. The carving of the inscriptions on the pedestal of the monument of Gambetta in the Place de Carousal, opposite the Louvre, lias been proceeding for some days. The words will be: "French men, raise your souls and your resolu- tions to the height of the perils which weigh on the fatherland. It yet de pends upon you & show to the universe the spectacle of a great people which will not perish." The Unitarian Muddle. Vienna, September 20th. The Porte has sent a circular to the Powers, pro posing that a general chosen by Turkey and Russia jointly be sent to Bulgaria, with power to restore order in accord ance with the terms of the treaty of Ber lin. The assent of Germany, France and Russia is considered certain, but that of England, Austria and Italy is deemed uncertain. Miscellaneous. The London "Standard's" correspond ent at Shanghai says: The American Chinese bank syndicate have accepted Li Hung Chang's conditions, and an American official will depart for China immediately to complete the arrange ments. Banks will probably be started in Shanghai and Tientsin, and branches will be opened in Philadelphia and Lon don in the spring.
