Already his right jii rn is lamed and his conriploxior has the sitipicious chalky appsaranc. of ill health. But the crowd nil. comes marching on, fairly lnlUtiy over each other in their eagerness to teach the ear ol the President. Such a u gang was never bolor seel in Washington. It was thought m pie ‘beginning of Mr, Cleveland1! administration that the preasue fot eillico was great, pul compared with Jbal now going on, it wni> as u sum mer zephyr to an untamed Dnkwii. blizzard, Ev*. y j.-.f.n except those that have Jied, that ever held i.fiiei ! ’ll. under a republican auiiiiniaiiutio:', i> t l- : 1 ,.1 I, • • ‘ 1 . lifre clamoring for vindicaiiou ii the shape of nn appointment to hiv oldil-.ee or to a better ono, and in a..- ’ition tlurc are thousands of mei a e after getting their first ti.sts Ul official life. These Inst think the government service needs u liberal jjifusion of new blood, provided 01 p.oursv, that they furnish it. Be tween them they are making a tor ment for Mr. Harrison as grout as jiny that ever existed on this earth, pnd there is little chance of a change Jintil everything worth pernmbiing for ia given out. In the meantim* Mr. Harrison's worst epemy coplt| pot with him worse punishment jhan ha ia daily undergoing.

The rest ol Mr. Clevelmd’a cabinet excap Mr Endiuott, are still hare. Mr. Dick isson went to New York with Mr. v-icTcianu a party ia»i woes, nut n»'* returned. There's a big row in tlie repubii pan eani,i) « .aady It is a queaiim pf vsrasily between llarnion anti Ex-Governor Alger. ^Alger told tin Michigan delegaliju that Harrison had expressed regret on account o' having to leave him (Alger) out to the cabinet, and u* a alight compen sation the President had told bin that bs might numo a man for So licitor General. Ho named U. M. Huffield, wb mn lie asked the delega tion to endorse, ul the same time *a»uring them that it was only a formality; that the appointment would bo considered personal, and would not tie charged to the.Slut-*. The delegation e* dorsed the appli cation and carried it immediately -to Mr. Harrison. The delegation was St rue a dumb when the President told them lie knew nothing about tbs matter, ami that they had beilet file the application v itli the Attorn ey General. What tnnspirud whtn the delegation got hack to Algor is not yet known. Bepresenlative Town«hcnd, of Illinois, died suddenly on Saturday, lie caught a severe cold last week, and on Tuesday it had developed in to pneumonia. Ho was one of tin most popular men in the House* Mr. Harrison’s cabinet, with thi exception of Mr. Blaino and Mr Windoro, is regarded as very weak.1 It is Blaine all over All the mem bers are intense Blaine.tec except two—Miller and Wannrnalter, and these two can jiat:!!}■ be sunl t. count, Miller being appointed soieiv because be was Utrriap'a law | an ner and personal fried, and VV ana maker because he held Guarj’s ol der lor the Postmaster Generalship, for which bo bad paid §100,000 in cold cash. A gent|cmari says he asked Mi Harrison it lie intended to call rn extra session of the Fiftieth con gress. and that the President topic u ‘No indeed.
