Mrs. Jefferson Davis, in a letter to
a friend in New York writes: "I am not
aurDrised that you believe that our
daughter Varina ('Winnie,") is our only
surviving child, as almost in every notice
of her it is stated that she is. 'the only
daughter of the late Jefferson Davis.' But
it is a cause of constantly recurring
thankfulness to me that if we were to be
deprived of all of our son9 by death two
daughters survive. Margaret, the elder,
is the wife of J. A. Hayes, a Mississip
pian by birth, now a banker in Colorado
Springs. She was most tenderly be
loved by her father, and it was one of
the sorrows of his later years that Mr
Flayes' health required her residence to
be so far removed from ours."

A good many in Rock Island have no
doubt been regaled by Hon. Bill Craw
ford with bis experiences in Springfield,
how his colleagues drew '"life-like" car
toons of the Edgington statesmen during
his absence and placed them on his desk.
They are still "playiog horse" with
Crawford, it seems, as the following col
loquy from the Springfield correspondent
to yesterday's Chicago Iferahl would in
dicate: There was a touching episode in the
Lei And corridor this afternoon, when
"Stock Yards" Crawford, of Rock Inland,
met his friend and boon companion,
Charles Henry Crawford.
'I'm glad you're coming over to us
next session." remarked Charles Henry.
"So am I," replied the granger's friend.
"Is Cicero coining this session?" in
quired Charles Henry.
"Cicero who? He's dead," rejoined the
gentleman from Rock Island.
"Ob, no; I mean Lindley," corrected
The Rock Islander grablted Charles
Henry around the neck, and his strangle

not Henry Evans reminded the gentlemen
that such boisterous demonstrations of
affection were unseemly in public.
Charles Henry admitted this, but begged
the indulgence of the spectators, because,
"The family tree is reestablished. You
will excuse us if it is a willow and we
hang our burps on it while we weep."
"You'll help me out, Charley, won't

on Charles Henry.
"Call on me at any time." assented
Charles Henry. Then the country was

The fact that the biggest pension agent

Washington City, July 24. The cor
respondence between the American anil
British governments relative to the vexed
Retiring sea question was laid before con
gress yesterday, and includes the period
from Aug. 24, 139, to July 10, ISO. The
beginning of the correspondence is a com
plaint from Lord Salisbury that United
States cruisers have stopped, searched,
and Taeized British vessels on "the high
seas" outside the three-mile limit iu Be fi

Julian Pnuuceforte would be prepared on

Blaine urgiug that stringent instructions

rings sea to retrain from seizing British
vessels in the sea outside the three mile

plied that he hoped the matter would rest
until the whole subject was tiiketi up by
Sir Julian Pauncefote and himself, and
that any instructions sent to our vessels
at the date of the request would have
been too late, as they hud already sailed

Salisbury, referring to the seizure of the

tains that from affidavits and reports fur

these vessels were seized at a distance
from land far in excess of the limit of
maritime Jurisdiction which auy nation
could claim by international law. In the
summer of 1S87 Secretary Baynrd had
communicated unofficially an assurance
that no further seizures of this character
should take place pending the discussion
of the questions involved. In view
of the unexpected renewal of the seizures
of which her majesty's government has
previously complained, it is my duty to
protest against them, and to state that, in
the opinion of her majesty's government.

HI nine's Reply to the Protest.
The next letter in the correspondence,
and the first one from Mr. Blaine to Sir
Julian Pnuncefote on the subject, is dated
January 15'JO. in tbis letter ttie secre
tary defends the acts complained of by
the British government on the following
grounds: That the Canadian vessels
arrested and detained in the Behrings sea
were engaged in a pursuit in itself contra
bono' mores a pursuit which of neces
sity involves a serious and permanent in
jury to the rights of the government and
people of the united States. That the
fisheries had been in the undisturbed
possession and under the exclusive control
of Russia, from their discovery until the
cession of Alaska to the United States in
167, and that from this date onwards
nntil ISM they had also remained in theun
disturbed possession of the United States
government. He claims from frieudly
nations a recognition of the same rights
conceded to Russia.
The Law of the Illcli Seas.
Salisbury replied to the above iu a letter
dated May S'J, 19SJ, and questions whether
the taking of seals as complained of is
contra bonos mores, and, even if so.
whether it Justifies the seizures made by
the United States. He says: "It is an
axiom of international maritime law that
such action is only admissible in the case
of piracy or in pursuance of special inter
national agreement. This principle has
been universally admitted by jurists, an
was very distinctly laid down by President
Tyler in his special message to congress.
dated Feb. 27, 1948, when, after ackuowl
log the right to detain and search a ves
el on suspicion of piracy, he goes on to
aay: 'With this single exception, no na
tion has, in time of peace, the authority
to detain the ship of another upon the
high aeas, on any pretext whatever, out-
aide the territorial jurisdiction.'" And
he adds that, even in the case of the slave
trail the right of seizure of vessels on the
high seas was only exercised by the con
aent of the nations involved.
Jurisdiction In Brhrlaf tea.
Replying to the alleged exclusive mo
nopoly of Russia in the seal fisheries, ad
vanced as Blaine s second argument
Salisbury aays: "After Russia, at the in
stance of the Russian-American Fur com
pany, claimed in 1$Jl the pursuits of com
merce, whaling and fishing from Behring
straits to the 51st degree of north lat
Itude, and not only prohibited all for
ign vessels from landing on the coasts
and islands of the above waters, but also
prevented tbem from approachiug within
101) miles thereof. Mr. Qtiincy Adams
wrote as follows to the United States min
ister la Russia: The United States can
admit no part of thee claims. Their
right of navigation and fishing is perfect
and has been in constant exercise from the
aarliest times throughout the whole ex
tent of the Southern ocean, subject only
to the ordinary exceptions and exclusions
of the territorial jurisdiction.' " The mar
quis then quotes a case to prove that the

Kot a "Mare Clansam."
"From the speech of Mr. Sumner, when
introducing the question of the purchase
of Alaska to congress, it is equally clear
that the United States governme nt did
not regard themselves as purchasing
monopoly. Having daalt with far-hear
ing animals, he want on to treat of fisher
ies, and. after alluding to the presence of
different species of whales in the vicinity
of the Aleutians said: 'No sea is mar
elansum; all of theae may be pursued by
hip under any flag, except directly on the
oast or within Its territorial limit.' " Ha
plvlng to Secretary Blaine's statement
that from 167 to 1880 the possession of
seal fisheries was enjoyed by the United
States, without intrusion or interruption
from any source, Salisbury cites instances
proving that Blaine is wrong.and that Brit
ish veasela were engaged at intervals dur
ing that time In aaaling, without opposi
Uon from the United btates
Salisbury Charged With Shuffling.
Blaine replies to this on May 29, ISM),
and after going over the entire contro
versy again, protests against the British
government protecting vessels in doing
violence to seal life. He is su prised that
Salisbury should do this, because it seems
inconsistent with his former declarations.
Blaine then goes into m recital of former
negotiations, wherein Salisbury had
agreed to regulations for seal fishing sug
gested by the American goverusaent, de
clared herself entirely satisfied, and
promised to introduce a bill in parliamen
in accordance with said regulations, which
he had no doubt would promptly pass.
Blaine then complains that Salisbury at
the last moment announced that nothing
could be done without the consent of
Canada. A fact that should have been
stated earlier in the interest of candor.
Mo Claim of "Mare Clausnm."
The above took place while Phelps was
minister to England. The same proposals
were made Sir Julian Paunceb te, readily
accepted by him (ufrer the change of ad
ministration in this country) and every
thing again looked like a settlement.
Blaine says that no otistacles were pre
sented by the United States "no insia
tance was made upon - Behri igs sea as
mare clausum," but these n egotiations
were as suddenly broken off as the pre-
ious ones by the interposition it Canada.
Then when correspondence was resumed
in April last au offer was t lade for a
mixed commission of expert to decide
he question. The propositions made by
lord Salisbury in 13N4 and t' le proposi
tions made by her "majesty's n inister in
Washington in 190 are in signi Scant con
trast. The circumstances are the same,
the conditions are the same, th ) rights of
the United States are the same in both
years. The position of England has
changed, because the wishes of Canada
have demanded the change.
A Salty Comtnunicatlr n.
The letter is a very caustic communica
tion, and imputes decided shiftiness to the
British premier, with a hint that negotia
tions are difricult with a country when
what it agrees to is likely to b set aside
because one of its dependent objects.
He draws a contrast between i he author
ity of Great Britain iu Canada and the
United States in one of its states, show
ing that England has much the greater
authority, and then asks: "Cm the gov

Salisbury Hacks Water.
June 2 Blaine wrote Paunce'ote asking
if Salisbury would agree for a single sea
son to exclude British vessels from Beh
ring sea a regulation that in 1SSS he of
fered to make permanent, 'li e reply to
this was that Salisbury was sa Isfled that
the extreme measure proposed iu 1SS8, to
day was beyond the requirements of the
case. Blaine wrote relative to the above
remark that it needed explanation, and
said that the president was d sappointed
thateven for the sake of seem ing an im
partial arbitration of the question at issue

suspend, for a single season, the practice

"the wanton destruction of a valuable in
dustry." and which this gove:nment has
uuiformly regarded ns Rn unpi-ovoked in
vasion of its established rights.
Nothing Satisfactory to John Hull.
On June 9th Sir Julian not tied Secre
tary Blaine that Lord Salisbury regretted
the president should think him wanting
in conciliation: and added that it was en
tirely beyond the power of her majesty's
government to exe'ude British or Can
adian ships from any portion cf the hlih
seas, even for an hour, withom legislative
sanction. To this Secretary Blaine on
Jnne 11 replied that it would satisfy this
government if Lord Salisbury would by
public proclamation simply rqnest that
vessels sailing under the British flag
should abstain from entering Behring sea
for the present season. If this was com
plied with there would be full time for
impartial negotiations and friendly con
clusion of the differences let ween the
two governments. On June 27 Sir Julian
notified Secretary Blaine th it constitu
tional difficulties would preclude her
majesty's government from ncceding tc
Jtisereditlng a Quotation.
On June ? Secretary Blaina wrote to
Sir Julian Pauncefote, and referring to al
leged declarations and admissi ins of Pres
ident Adams of ".S21, about thf claims ol
Hussia over Behring sea. as quoted by
Lord Salisbury, says: "Th quotation
which Lord Salisbury makts is nnfor
tunately a most defective, erroneous and
misleading one. The conclusion is sepa
rated from the premise.a comt ia"is turned
into a period, an Important c nalification
as to time is entirely erased. ' ithout even
a suggestion that it had ever formed
part of the text, and out of eighty-foui
words, logically and inseparably con
nected, thirty-five are dropped from Mr.
Adams paragraph in Ird Salisbury's
quotation. No edition of Mr. Adams'
works gives authority for hi lordship's
quotation, while the archives of this de
partment plainly disclifee its many errors.
Conclusions or inference.Mr. Blninesays,
resting upon the paragraph, as quoted by
Ixird Salisbury, with the ma erial parti
omitted, "are of course valueless."
Soma Positions Reasserted.
Later on after discussing anil reviewing
the histnrv of the acquisition of Russian
possessions in North America, be reasserts
that during all the time between 125 and
the cession of Alaska to the United States
in 1807, Great Britain never a (firmed the
right of her subjects to capture seals in
the Behriug sea, and repeat questions
which he asked last January and whleh
still remain unanswered : Whence did the
ships of Canada derive the rig it to do in
lSti that which they had refrained from
doing for nearly ninety years.
Tliq Latest Proposition.
The last letter in the correspondence is

Bosom Friend IKi Some Significant
London, July SI The seven suicides of
Mr. Mantilini and the four confessions of
Mrs. Elizabeth Til ton are tbe only paral
lels in fiction and history to the oft-repeated
rumors and denials of the engage
ment of Mrs. Frank Leslie to the Marquis
de Leuville. Nevertheless, the prospec
tive marriage of so distinguished a jour
nalist as Mrs. Frank Leslie to a French
nobleman with one of the proudest titles
ever purchased is of decided interest.
Registrar . Frank Hearne, in Victoria
Btreet, is qualiled to speak with authority
on matters matrimonial
Frank and the Mararnia.
He said that Mrs. Leslie and the Mar
quis de Leuville called upon him on the
evening of Thursday, July 10, and took
out a marriage license. Mrs. l.eslie was
to sail for America on Saturday, aud she
desired to have the ceremony performed
on Friday. Registrar Hearne said he in
formed her that one whole day must
elapse between the issuance of the license
and the ceremony. Mrs. Leslie then said
that she would be compelled to leave
Loudon at it o'clock on Saturday morn
ing to catch the City of Rome, aud that
she must then be married early Saturday
morning. The registrar was asked if he
was sure the lady was Mrs. Ieslie, as De
Leuville is quite capable of obtaining the
services of some one to personate her.
What Happened In 18HO.
He said: "She is the same lady to whom
granted a license last year. I issued a
license to the same persons last August.
I could not swear that the lady was Mrs.
Leslie, but I have every reason to believe
that she was." The registrar described
Mrs. Leslie perfectly. At the vestry of
fice in Mount street, Grosvenor square,
the notices of marriage were inspected.
There it was learned that Mrs. Leslie and
tbe Marquis dt Leuville filed notice of an
intention of marriage on Aug. 19, ls90.
De Leuville described himself as "Will-
lam Kene Oliver de Lorncourt, marquis
de Leuville, bachelor, aged 44; residence.
98 ictoria street." Mrs. Leslie was
corded as "widow, 38 years of age; resi
dence, Grosvenor hotel."
She Draws tbe Line at 38.
To the question, "In what church or
building - is the marriage to be solemn
ized V the response was "In the regis
trar's office, St. George's, Hanover square."
On July 10, ISO, another record of an in
tention of marriage on the part of tbe
Marquis de Leuville and Mrs. Leslie was
found. Here De Leuville described him
self as "William Oliver, Marquis de Leu
ville, and gave bis age as 4-1 years.

A VISIT TO THE MARQUIS-
Ilia Dearest Friend Interviewed De
Leuville la Hopeful.
At !"S Victoria street, the Albert man
sion. the reporter was shown into the no
ble marquis' drawing-room, an apartment
magnificently furnished, with the most
uncomfortable chairs ever manufactured,
and decorated with all the modern designs
in brocades. There entered a gray and
cadaverous person of masculine gender,
who announced himself as Capt. Humber,
"the dearest friend of the marquis." He
was asked why Mrs. Ijeslie so persistently
denied the fact of the engagement to De
Ijenville when that fact was on record.
"My lord is not at home at present," said
Capt. Humber, "but I am sure if he were
here he would say that if the lady chose to
deny the fact ol the engagement he would
uphold her in whatever she said."
Captalu Humbrr's Observations.
Captain Humber theu said that he had
chanced to lie standiug in front of Regis
trar Hearne's on the evening of Thursday,
July 10, when a hansom cabman, whose
vehicle was standing before the door,
accosted him with the remark: "The
Marquis de leuville has just gone in there
with a rich American lady whom he is
gofng to marry." It struck the captain as
so remarkable a coincidence that he
should happen to be there and that the
cabman happened to be there also, and
likewise t lie horse and eke tbe hansom,
that he remained until the marquis and
Mrs. Leslie came out and drove an ay with
out seeing him. "I am sure," said the
captain, "that my lord will desire to have
the matter kept as quiet as possible, bow
ever, and that in no event will he consent
to be interviewed on tbe subject."
Cannot Contradict a Ladr.
The correctness of Capt. Hnmber's esti
mate of William Rene Oliver de Lorn
court's views on the mat ter was proved
by the circumstance that the marquis
railed three times on the reporter yester
day afternoon, and finally sent his car
riage to bring tbe reporter to see him.
The marquis was found in a wine vault
off tbe Strand sampling 1W0 pommery sec
with Freemen Thomas and a contingent
of admiring satellites. Tbe nobleman
needed a shave, a hair cut and a better
hat, but he wore a golden bangle about
his manly wrist, and scintillated in tbe
region of the cravat with all the known
gems. "This is only a lovers' quarrel,"
he said. "Of course if Mrs. Leslie says
we are not engaged and never have been,
I cannot, as a gentleman, deny it. But
never mind: love will prevail, ahal"

August, 1887, was a noted month. It
gave extreme beat and extreme cold, the
results of which were disastrous to the
public health. Cases of colic, cholera
morbus and diarrhoea were abundant and
there were numerous calls at the drug
stores for Chambetlain's Colic, Cholera
and Diarrhoea Remedy. Druggists of
this city tell us that this remedy has been
more frequently called for during the
past month than any other preparation,
and that it haj proven a panacea for tbe
very worst cases. Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy is mer
itorious medicinal preparation for all
summer complaints for which it is recom
mended, and grows in popularity In this
city and vicinity. The sales are increase
