of opening, straightening or widening

cf their property in full view
of the depreciation or inconvenience
whioh such property suffers for the
cost of suoh ao improvement, and
have in consequence of such incon
venience git the property so much
cheaper. If their- property is to be
benefitted by Each an improvement,
and my property, in another locality
is not to be benefitted, what right
have they to ask. that I shall bear an
equal part of the expense of the im
provement of their property? The
whole vicious principle involved in this
squandering the public money on par
ticular and private individuals is emi
nently dangerous, beoause it is im
possible when allowed at all to say
where it will stop, because tens and
hundred of thousands are as liable to
bo spent in this way as thousands.
If it is possible that any man can i
make any jast defence of these ex
penditures, I shall be glad to have
hirn attempt it.

B-ecacron War.
New York, Nov 25 Baeeher, in
his discourse at Pijmouth Chureh
yesterday, aternly rebuked the invita
tion to fl r with England. He said:
Cursed of God and of all men may
be that man who counsels the red
baod of war, except when needed to
fight for national existence. The only
war we want is the war of righteous
ness. Let Kiogs war. and let aristo
crats war", but the nobles of this great
Repubite sbCJld know the fellowship
of men, and. ioaiead of the red hand
of war, let them put around their
neighbors tbo arm cf ftllowship, and
dwell with them in harfflO7i 13 nnity,
in sympathy and love."
' - After tne Jesuits.
CmcursATl, November 25. A man
named Anthony Hoop, manifestly
. suffering from partial insanity, entered
St, Xavier Catholic College to-day,
arned with long knives, saying the
Jesuits were getting too much power
in this country, and he wanted to die
for Jesus, and created great eooster
pation by attacking tho priests. Path
r O'Noil was cut on the left arm in
a pamtu', thocgh not dangerous,
manner, and a number of the priests
received slight irjarica before -the
laaa was arretted.

to inform Ler M.jasty of the impossi

with the Cabinet irreconcilably di
vided as to the policy to be pursued
towards Russia. Tbe tendering of
his resignation on this issue will
upset the Ministry. A dissolution of
tbe Cabinet can scarcely be prevent
ed. The Cabinet assembled at halt
past 2 o'clock, with Granville and
Gladstone absent. At 3 o'clock,
Gladstone, the Prime Minister, ar
rived, with a note from Prince Gort
schakoff. The note was read, and
then ensued a he -tod, and even angry,
discussion. No t oision was arrived
at. Tho Cabinet adjourned at 7

don early in the morning. Granville
conferred with the Qaeen, and it was
supposed that the ooject of his visit
was to present the dispaton. Such a
step, taken so swiftly, was deemed
ery grave, but, ia fact, tho chief of
tha Cabinet had sot, at that time, re
ceived the dispatch, as Baron Brun
now did cot deliver it until in the af
ternoon, shortly before the Cabinet
oonierence. Immediately a meeting
was held between Granville and
Gladstone, and the dispatch was laid
before the Council. All the mem.
bersofthe Cabinet were present ex
cept Bright and Fortcscui?. Extreme
caution is shown, not to give aoy kind
of information, but there ia some au
thority for say ins: that the Cabinet
has arrived at no decision.
The reception ot the dispatch has
produced much anxiety in ilte h-jbest
quarters. The only thing certain to
night is, that the government wishes
delay, and desires that neither tho ex

The committee appointed by tbe
National Immigration Convention, at
Indianapolis, to memorialize Congress,
met at tne onerman tlouse, to this
city, to -a ay. ine committee com
prises the following gentlemen : Gov
McCook. of California. Actin Chair.
man, Henry Green baum, of Illinois,
Secretary, w. if. ftluokle. of Penn
sylvania, Chaa. Ramelio, of Ohio,
C. U. Loudon, of Mississippi. Col.H
Watson, of Minnesota, W. E. Smith,
of Wisconsin.
The resolutions presented to tha
Convention were taken no. The fol
lowing was then drafted, regarding
tbe nrst two resolutions:
i our memorialists would present
to your bonorable bodies that tbe
convention whioh we represent em
bodied deleratea from twenty-two
States and one Territory of the
Union, and that it was comprised, in
a great measure, ot men who bad Riv
en tneir time and attention, botn in
this oountry and Europe, to the sub
ject of transporting emigrants from
Europe; and, in pLcisg before you
tne views oi tne convention, we wouia
state tbat emigrants are frequently
placed in badly ventilated ships, sup
plied with insufficient food, deprived
of means to secure personal cleanli
ness, ana unprovided with proper
medical attendance. i.ven in vessels
where proper sanitary regulations are
enforced, the laws of the . United
States are violated by overcrowding
the steerage.
Your memorialuta believe that as
great, or greater, evils exist in the in
land transit of emigrants than in their
transportation to this country. Your
memorialists call especial attention to
tbe fact that by far the greater number
of emigrants landing at our sea-ports,
pass over immediately to the western
and southwestern States and Territo
ries, and during such transit they are
subject to many abuses, suoh as being
crowded into cars insufficiently venti
lated, and not afforded euffioient fa
cilities for obtaining cheap and
wholesome food and water; being un
necessarily detained by being sent a
circuitous route in order to accom
modate certain oiUvA ma.al,
being enticed by runners into boai d
ing houses against their wishes and
interests; not being able to have their
baggage checked through, and there
by frequently losing it; being insulted
by deck hands and thieves on the
river and lake steamers. The annual
report of the Commusinners of -Emigration
of the State of New York, for
the jear ending December 3lst, 1SG3,
corroborates fully the conviction
forced npon the minds of the memo
rialists, that it has tecomo ao imper
ative duty with tha government of
the United States to carry out the
objoota above recited, and they re
spectfully urge tbe proposed conten
tion between the Government of the
United States and foreign govern
ments, for the better protection of
steerage passengers on the high sea,
at the earliest practicable time. They
also call especial attention to tha an
noyances and injuries frequently sus
tained on the part cf immigrants by
the action of Custom House inspect
ors, referred to in said report ot the
Commissioners of Immigration, of the
State of New' York. The convention
then adjourned ontil evening, when
they will probably , complete their re
port. , t -
Indian Land Survey Ordered Troops
la Georgia Treasury Matters.
. Washington, November 25. The
President has ordered a survey of the
Creek and Seminole cessions in the
Indian Territory, west ninety-six de-
Eees, for the purpose of having the
nd divided into small tracts, on
whioh families can locate separate.
and thus enable them to establish
homes, so tbat the peaceful policy of
the Government towards the Indians
can be carried into effect.
General Hallock has been ordered
to make each disposition of the troops
now in Georgia as may be necessary
for the preservation of peace at the
approaching election. The Governor
of Georgia, who is now here, has no
knowledge of any additional troops
having been sent to Georgia, and is
of the opinion tbat tbe State author
ities will not need tbem.
The agent of tbe Treasury Depart
ment who recently took $3,000,000, in
greenbacks, to San Francisoo, to be
oxchaoged for a-similar amount in
old ones, will return with tbe latter,
whioh will be canceled before leaving
that city.
. Railroad Blockade Raised.
New York, November 25. Tbe
efforts of Commodore Vanderbilt to
blockade the approaches to the Niag
ara Suspension Bridge against com
peting lines, have failed. The Su
preme Court at Syrabuse, to-day, ren
dered a decision that tbe allowance of

to the Central for the use of the

ceedings of the Central authorities in
obstructirg the approaches to the
bridge. Tne Erie and Suspension
Bridee Junction will be immediately
completed, and, it is stated, form a
