Itis positively stated that when tho cruiser Charleston sailed Saturday morning it was under sealed orders. A cipher dispatch was re ceived by Captain Jtcmy at midnight Friday. It took over threo hours to trans lato the dispatch, and at 4 o'clock in the morning all visitors were ordered ashore and the Charleston hastily put to sea. The Charleston is provisioned and coaled for o long cruise, and instead of going outsidcto try her guns, as was the general supposi tion, it is staled she has gone in pursuit of the Chilian steamer itnta, with orders to capture her. If tho Charleston does not catch hor, the orders arc said to be to keep on until Admiral Drown is encountered in Chilian waters. Transfer of arms, ammunition, etc., from the Schooner Robert and Minnie to the Itata was not completed until Friday afternoon, so that the insurgent vessel has n start of thirty-six hours. The Charles ton has not yet returned to this port, as sho would have doilo by this time, if she had .gone outside simply for target practice. At tho Nuy.v Department. Commodore Ramsey was asked direct questions by 11 CiitTic-RKConn representa tive as to orders to the Charleston or other vessels in connection with tho Itata affair.

"Do 3'ou want the inside facts in con nection with tho Chilian affair?" asked a prominent attache of one of the South American legations of a Citmc-ltucoiui reporter this morning. Tho reporter cocked his ear to windward, nodded as sent, and the gentleman proceeded: "The arms which were transferred from the Robert and Minnie to the Itnta, the vessel of the Chilian Insurgents, were the property of W. It. Grace A- Co. of New York. Tho contest now raging in the Chilian republic between President Hal maceda and the insurgents was inspired nnd is the direct outcome of a rivalry be tween Grace ,fc Co. and the largo Kuglish syndicate of which Colonel North is the head. The Kuglish people own the nitre beds in .Chili and Grace owns ihi im mense guano beds of Peru. Grace is trying to secure control of the nitre beds, but as 1 he present Government is friendly to North, his only hope of obtaining the concessions he- desired was to foment a revolt against tho present Government in order to overthrow it. Willi that object in view his naents have been for months at work planting the seeds of the present rebellion. He furnished n great deal of the money necpsMiryTu carry on the war witli.thc understanding that if it was suc cessful North should be driven out and ho should have control of the nitre, beds. His conspiracy has been going on for months. Three weeks ago Grace himself was out on the Pacific Coast personally superintending tho arrangement for the receipt and Miipmeut of the insurgent arms to Chili. That is the milk in the cocoa nut. I don't think Grace is amenable to any law, but this Government must be come internationally responsible for Grace's infraction of the neutrality laws." PEACE IN HONDURAS.

Nr.w York, May 11. Dr. Dennis called nt the house of Mr. Damrosch to-day and made an examination of his distinguished alicnt. He subsequently staled to the United Press reporter that there was nothing alarming in the symptoms of Mr. Dlaine, or his pent condition. Rest was all ho rciiuiml to bring him around. Tho only medicine prescribed was pepsin, and that was to relievo the attack ol indiges tion from which Mr. Ulaine is suffering. Mis. lilainc was also seen. SI10 said: "Mr. Ulaine is still confined to his bed. Ho is resting quietly and there is no danger whatever. In fact lie is almost well. His attending physician lias advised him lo rest and not to return to Washington to-day. The Secretary would return to the Capital if I would permit it, but, in view of tho doctor's advice, I would not let him go under any circumstances, for if anything should happen I would feel that 1 was lo blame. Since the President's absence Mr. Ulaine lias been work ing very hard and the fact is that he was called upon to look after all the affairs of the Department of State. I attribute tho present attack lo Mr, Dlaino's having hurried over lo this city to see his daughter oft for Kurope, and thus getting out of his regular daily routine." Mrs, lihiino denied that the Secretary had had another attack of vertigo. lie has had 110 fainting spells, she said, and his mind is perfectly clear.

Tho first fow hot days are always trying to my father, and this fact, coupled with tho attack of indigestion, has pulled him down a little, but It is scarcely serious enough to spn.ik of nt length. Hull, as tho mutter is being talked of, tho exact truth may as well be known. "Mr. Maim will take Ills vacation a month earlier than usual this year, leav ing Washington in Juno instead of July.
