All reports regarding tho composition of tho now cabinet concur in llio statement (lint tlio Harlot Carnarvon will becomo viceroy ot Ireland, and tli.it tlio lion. Kdward Stanhopo will bo president of tho board ot trade. Tho lllghl Hon.

Edward Clarko, who represents l'lytnonth In parliament, will bo llio attorney general, and tho Right lion. John"Kldon floret, member ot parlia ment from Chatham, Is tho ouo named for solicitor general, Tho unexpected developments to-day In Iho inarch of events render It qulto poislblo In tlio opinion of many liberals that Mr. Gladstone, however much ho may bo disin clined, will bo compollcd to return to olllco. It Is reported that tho Mnrquls of Salisbury demanded from tho retiring ministry nmoro cotnprchcnslvo promlso of support than they wcro prepared to glvo. It Is believed by many liberals also that tho visit to-day of Mr. ulndstono to tho queen at Windsor Castlo had a connection with this subject of a return to office Conservatives, on tho other hand, however, havo not n doubt but that tho JIarimlsof Salisbury will accept ofllco. In accordance with tho decision of tho meeting of tho Marquis of Salisbury and other conservatives, Sir Stafford Northcoto has been appointed flrstlord of tho treasury, with a peerage (lio premiership remaining In tho hands of Lord Salisbury. For tho premier not to nssumo tho duties of first lord of tbo treasury Is unusual, but has a precedent. Mr. Arthur Balfour will bo president of tlio local government board without a seat In tho cabinet. Hon. Ed- s ward Stanhopo will bo vlco president of U.U Cuu.rWI, Tho queen has sent Sir Stafford Nortb coto an autograph letter thanking him for his high services and offering him an earl dom.

Tho queen gavo an audlcnco In 'Windsor castlo to-day to SlrStafford North coto. Sir Ilardlngo Glftord Is to bo lord high chancellor. i-osi-os, Juno 10. Tlio JtoiM says It Is enabled to stato that tho formation of tho ministry Is In nbcyanco pending tho nego tiations of Lord Salisbury with' tho liberals. Tlio Standard says that tho liberals refuse sufficient assuranco that they will not op poso business, especially tho budget. Ne gotiations will continue, and, unless pledges bo given, Lord Salisbury will rofuso ofllco. It Is reported that Sir Ilcnry Drummond Wolff will succeed Mr. Sackvlllo West as minister at Washington, Lord Ly tton will probably bo appointed ambassador to Ger many. Mr. Gladstone still withholds, his assur ance that tho liberals will assist tho Salis bury government, and tho Marquis. of Sal isbury persists In his refusal to talco olllco In tho nbsenco of such an assurance Tlio result is a complcto deadlock. It Is stated that at a meeting of liberal leaders It was decided to glvo tho consorva lives an nssurauco of partial Support. ,ThlA Is not enough to satisfy tho .Marquis of Salisbury, and It Is not likely that ho will announce a cabinet to-day, In which caso parliament will adjourn until Monday. Tho conservatives bcllovo that tho difficulty of reforming tho Itbcralcablnct will compol tho liberals to glvo pledges. CABINET MUSIS IN ITALY. Home, Juno 18.

Half an hour afterward tho doctor, In n'convcrsa tlon, said ho thought tlio general was tired, though quiet. Tho expectoration that so weakens tho patient was, tho doctor thought, somewhat abated, and tho general seemed Inclined to .sleep to-night. When asked It bo Intended to remain hero con stantly with tho general, Dr. Douglas said ho was not certain ho would do so. IIo might after n tlmo return to tho city for a whllo and ask Dr. Sbrady to como hero. Tho physician npprchends no troublo to night. Ho expresses tho belief that Gen. Grant will pass a quiet night.

Tlio-report of tho board of examination appointed lo Invrsllgato tho-construction of tbo Dolphin, which was given nut by Secretary Whitney yesterday, assumo lo cover tho following points: 1. Has tho Dolphin been constructed lit accordauco with the terms of tbo contract between Mr. John Roach and Iho govern ment 2. What defects, If any, whothcr of plan or ot execution, are apparent lu tho Dol phin from such examination as can now lie made In her present completed stato f 3. What matters can bo ilclonnlncd and w lint mailers nro Incapablo of dctcrmtnaUou In n completed ship? To cxamlno tho Dolphin so ns to fully answer tho above Inquiries nud to locate ac curately tho causes ot tho weakness oh tcrvcdln her would necessitate, Iho report says nt tho outsot, tho expenditure of a very largo sum of money lu taking out tlio ma chinery and opening up of tho ship. Where fore, such examination as this board has felt authorized to mako can only develop such defects ns cannot bo concealed. Tho law authorizing Iho construction of tho Dolphin provided for n "sea speed" of fifteen knots per hour. That a boat of her slzo should possess this requisite speed It Is absolutely Indispcnsablo that she should have great strength and stiffness. That the Dolphin has not tho requlslto strength and stiffness lo enable her toinakotho speed re quired under tbo conditions sho must bo prcpatr.d to meet admits ot no doubt lu tho opinion of tho board. In order that a ves sel should keep up n sen speed of fifteen knots per hour she should bo nblo to make from seventeen to seventeen and nhalt knots per hour lu smooth Inland water llko tho sound. On tho occasions referred lo tho vibra tion of tho Dolphin when subjected to only that duty nud test was very perceptible ond of a choraclcr to demonstrate liiado quato strength and stiffness, Tho floors of tho cnglno 1 00111 wcro observed to spring severely. These facts, so obvious to tho board, needed no corroboration, but corroboration was furnished on tho second ot tho unsuc cessful trlul trips. On that occasion her after-crank pin becamo hot after n short mn even ueroro tuo actual tnaiuau neguu. This pin had given no troublo on tbo previ ous trial, nud tho board was Informed by the contractor nud his men that It had never before given any trouble. Tho only reason apparent for tho troublo on this oc casion, nud tho ouo In which It was doubt less due, Is to be found In tho following facts: tin tho previous unsuccessful trial about forty tons ot pig Iron had been put in tho forward part of tlio ship to trim her. l'lvo tons more wcro added on this occasion, and, of course, some portion of tho coal had been consumed fro;n her bunkers. Even theso slight changes lu tho situation of weights wcro seemingly sttfllclcut to al ter her shape so as to causo this after-crank pin to beat almost nl once Whcroforo tho question arises, Is this structural weakness duo lo a fault of plan or execution or docs It proceed fiom both? In Justlco to tho contractor tho board states that tho plans furnished him wcro very meager, aim y no means provide lor a vessel of ndequato strength for tho uses for which tho Dolphin was Intended. Whllo It Is clear that tho plans aro at fault, and It carried out In tho best manner would not produce a vessel ot suillclcut strength, yet It seems to tho hoard that tho Dolphin exhibits a degreo ot weakness lu excoss of what can properly bo entirely attributed to the defcctlvo plans. Wherefore tho board Is of the opinion that the execution must bo faulty In this regard, hut It Is Impos'lhlo to state with exactness tbo degreo of blnmo that might properly attach to tho contractor In this preclso respect without taking out tho machinery anil oponlugup of tho ship a work, ns previously stated, Involving tho largo expenditure of money. Tho contract Is quoted ns providing that "provision ho mado for closing the llrcroom hatches nud other openings sulllcloiitly tight lo maintain an air pressure equivalent to n head of water of ouo Inch In tho lire room;" and that tho ship's engines should lu a trial trip ot six hours ludlcato 2,30J mean horso power. Willi regard to tho first stipulation no at tention seems to the board to havo been given for Its proper observance, the con tractor alleging that such pressure had been obtained on tho llrst trial witnessed by the advisory board by using taupaullns to cover tho hatches, but owing to changes mado by tho board with regard to tbo blowers ho could not get tho pressure With regard to tliostlpulatlou as to horse power, two unsuccessful attempts to run tho Dolphin lu Long Island sound for a period of six hours wcro witnessed by tho board. On tho third trlal'tho Dolphin suc ceeded In running the required six-hours, nud sho subsequently made a fourth trlul nt sea from Sandy Hook to Ba'mcgnt light, aud loaded to tier sea displacement. Tho trip nt sea, however, gavo uo test of hor seagoing qualities ub tho water was as smooth ns had been previously found In tho sound. On all tho trials guat efforts wero mado by the contractor and his men to show the utmost power which could bo dovolopcd. With legurd to tbo general workmanship found on board tho Dolphin, tho board Is ot tlio opinion that It does not confoim to the terms ot tho contract and specifications lu many paitlculars, Slnco the board began Its detailed exami nation, tho results ot which are embodied 111 1111s report nnu us auucuua, tuo con tiactor has been at work upon tho vessel from tlmu to time In remedying tho defects discovered by the board. SECIICTAIIV WIHTNEV'8 QUESTION. Sccretury Whitney has transmitted to tho Attorney General a copy of tho report, with a letter In which ho says: "I desire you to examine this report and to ndvlso me what, upou tho law nppllcnblo to the case, Is my duty In tho premises." Tho facts and circumstances connected with tho ex amination are then hi lolly stated, "lu the meanwhile," llio letter continues, "an ex amination ot the dealings ot tho department with tho contractor, nud especially tho manner lu which tho reserved payments had been surrendered to tho contractor, iuduccd 1110 to select thrco competent per sons to mako thorough examination for tho purpose of my advisement ns lo (1) whether tho contract had bceu properly porformed; (3) as to defects lu tbo vessel; (!1) ns to thu responsibility for tho defects observed, If any. Tho result ot that examination, mado with great patience and Intelligence, Is herewith submitted for your consideration. 1 now desire an examination ot the con tract and the law by you, that 1 may bo advised whether, representing thu govern ment, I havo on my hands what Is lu tho nature of 11 bad bargain or a broken con tract. Tho report demonstrates that tho government hat-Snot got lu tho Dolphin what Congress stipulated for nud what should have been obtained. "There are thrco gonernl subjects con sidered by the board 1 First, tho speed; second, tho strength; third, tho general workmanship. " In regard to speed tho Socrotary says that instead of being a dispatch boat of llftceu knots sea speed, llio result ot these various trials Indicates something between twelve and thirteen knots as hernrobablosca sneed In service In view of tbo purpose for which tho was built a dispatch boat and the stale ot tho art with refcrenco lo speed of such vessels. It Is iiiinarcut that tho con tract has not produced the result Intended by Congress. As to her strength ho says that from tho lepoitot tho board It would seem that llio evidence upon this subject Is somewhat mengor, nud rests considerably upon opinion In tbo nbsenco of a sulllclout sea trial, Tho opinion Is expressed by the boaid that she has not the requlslto stiff ness, Her last two trials, according to tho icport, wero accomplished only with sticums of watcrpourlng upon hor Journals during tho trips. Theso facts seem to tho boaid to ludlcato great structural weak ness, to what extent, only a sufficient sea trial will demonstrate. As to tlio general chancier of the work manship tho Secretary iitatns that tho con tractor has expressed n willingness to miko the details satisfactory, so far ns bo Is able, and ho thinks tbo department should deal with that matter without legal advice In concluding, llio Secretary says Ihat "the government Is not receiving what It expected nnd had a right to expect from Iho construction of this vessel. Tho ques tion which I dcslro answered Is, whether tho department has In the matter a bad bar gain simply, which as between contracting patties It must stand to, or has It a broken contract entitling It to Insist upon some thing better? In connection with Ihls ques tion I desire lo bo advised what Is Iho oltect of the clrcuinstnneo flint tho construction has been super Iscd by government officials, material passed as suillclcut, and the work manship similarly approved, from tlmo to time during the construction. The con tract provides for this supervision and In spection, mid I mn ndvlscd that It has taken place ns thu work has progressed." IIo calls attention to tho fourteenth section of the contract In regard to tho ac ceptance of tho vessel and adds: "It tho supervision ond Inspection that has licon had Is n bar, so that tho department cannot go back and examine work passed nud ap proved by Its Inspectors and by Iho naval advisory hoard, t licit ends tho consideration of (lie matter. It 11 Is not n bar, how far Is tho contractor rcsponslblo for tho speed, strength, nud general workmanship nt the vessel, And what nro tho remedies of the dcpnitincnt under tho circumstances?" ONE MOlir.AXAI.YHIg. Tho Inspector of PuseiiiontN nud ( incut Trlfrt Ills Hand on tho I'.ivicr solr Vutcr.
