MONDAY, May 9. Black and Blackman, charged with de frauding the.government in mail contracts, were arraigned on Monday before the United States Commissioners, and were held in $5000 bail each. The Commissioner of Internal Revenue thinks the receipts will aggregate about $10, 000,000. This increase is due to the large production of cigars and cigarettes. It is stated that the Governor-General of Cannda will return to England after his Man itoba trip, resigning his position. Neither Gen. Mellikoff or Millentine will succeed the Grand Duke Michael. The Senate judiciary committee this morn ing resolved to report adversely the nomina tion of Stanley Matthews. The nomination will be accordingly reported in executive session. It is understood that Lamar favor ed the nomination. Of the rest of the com mittee Logan, Ingalls, McMillen, Davis and Bayard opposed, and Conkling and Garland were absent. The Republicans are working hard to pre vent the impending contest between Conk ling and the administration. The President has declared his ultimatum, but several friends of Conkling, who are stalwart repub licans of New York are trying to adjust the trouble. They urge Conkling to let Robert son's nomination be reported from the com mittee with the recommend alone, either favorably or unfavorably, simply submitting it to the Senate for its action, and that Conk ling should not make any speeches or say anything regarding the administration unless he shall be attacked by some administration Senators. This plan was urged upon Conk ling. He made no reply, and some of his friends think he may conclude to adopt this method in order to keep peace in the family. The Republican Senators are now in caucus and the opinion is almost unanimous that they will agree to act on this nomination and adjourn at an early day. On Monday Kellogg offered a resolution calling on the Postmaster General, and the Secretaries of the War, Navy, State and Treasury Departments for the names of all clerks and employees in their respective de partments, together with the dates of their appointments, the mtate to which each is charged, and the person upon whose recom mendation eazh was appointed. On object tion from Terry the resolution was laid over under the rules. The object of Kellogg's motion was to ascertain which of the States had more than their quota of appointments, and those having less. The question came up by Senator Brown declaring that the South had but very few app ointmentp. NOTES OF NEWS. Twenty ef the largest wheat countries in Kansas report vastly increased acreage and prospects of more than an average crop. The school population of the United States is 14,596,183. Of this number 9,373,195 were enrolled in 1878. There were in that year 271,144 teachers.

This is an increase of forty-three per cent, over the figures of April 1880. The President has decided to nominate General Lew Wallace as Minister to Turkey. The position of Charge d' Affairs at Para guay he did not deem quite up to his level. Ex-Representative Williams, of Indiana, is to be nominated as U. S. Consul at Monteve dio. The demoralization in Eastern freight rates is partially owing to the eagerness of owners of steamships to get their vessels to Europe to take advantake of the existing tremendous passenger trafic, the profits of such trafic be ing more than enough to offset the losses on this side of the Atlantic. Secretary Blaine attributes the numeious reports of his failing health to an exercise of diplombacy on his part in evading at times the swarms of visitors at the State Depart ment, who have made it next to impossible for him to control time enough to attend to public business. Congressman Williams, of Wisconsin, says he has the diplomatic gout. Madrid fifteen Ministeralists, five Demo crats and two Conservatives have been re turned. In the provinces, seventy-five per cent. of the returns show the election of friends of Sagasta.

The govern ment seems disposed to set the Cuban prison ers at liberty. A new steamship company has been orga nized in Lon~don which purposes to make a new depiarture in transatlantic travel.

Only first class pas.. sengers are tobe carried and for these super ior accommodations will be provided, while only the higher priced freight will be car ried. The question of a universal language comes to the front again, and the 8pelllng . reformers of Europe talk of holding an in- ] ternational congress at Berlin at the time the congress of orientalists meets in September. The subjects suggested for consideration are, the formation of a common alphabet for Europe, of a common alphabet for the East, and finally, of a universal alphabet. Music is pretty nearly a universal language for its own purposes; phonography squints that way, and now, with the telephone to help, something ought to be done to restore man kind to the lingual position they enjoyed be fore they built that unfortunate Tower of Babel, or babble, one might say. The Senate has confirmed Robert Hill, of Illinois, Assistant Secretary of State; Hiram Price, of Iowa, Commissioner of Indian Af fairs; A. M. Jones, U. S. Marshal for north ern Illinois; S. A.
