Wholesale Arrests of Irish Land Leaguers. Boyton Appeals to the United States Minister. The Recent Fire in Paris-Other News from Abroad. [By Cable to The Boston Globe.! Dublin, March IO.—Reports of arrests by the wholesale come in from all quarters. Thus far, the police aver, there has been no disturbance and little excitement. The most notable arrest is that of the celebrated Scrab Nally, who recently went to London intending to go to the Cape and join the Boers, but changed his mind, and is now insured comfortable Quarters for ^eighteen months. Those who had reached Dublin, up to 7 o’clock, were Martin O’Hallerhan, president of the Loughrea (County Galway) branch, and Joseph Dalton of Miltown, Clare-morris, charged with inciting a mob to attack a police hut; Patrick Kearney, farmer, Tur-longmore; Patrick Fury, president of Annagh-down League, county Galway. Four prisoners came from county Leitrim, charged with taking part in a riotous assembly; they are Charles Nelson, farmer, Drumsbire: Matthew Mel ley, farmer, Drumkeiran; Patrick McManus, publican, Drum Sharabo; J. McMorrow, national schoolmaster, from Dewra; Michael Ginglev and Michael Flynn were brought from Innis, Edward Hussey from Castle island, P. I). Kenny from Bal-lymacadan,Kerry, and another, Oola, from county Limerick. In addition to these, two arrests are reported from Cartloe. county Clare, names not given. There were also three more arrests in county Limerick. None of the prisoners, so far, has ever acquired more than local reputation except Boyton, Walsh and Nally. The iast-nained gentleman, whose speeches were notorious for their recommendation to give the landlords “pills,” recently had his photograph taken standing beside a ditch, with bis rifle in band aud a pile of cartridges at his feet. The picture was labelled “Naily’s pills." A newspaper correspondent Visited the Imprisoned Patriots * in jail today and found them lodged in cells on the second range of the three stories comprising the building. They are liberally treated and express themselves well satisfied with the^ courtesy and kindness of the governor. Their meals, with wine or beer, are sent from a neighboring hotel. Smoking is allowed, and for six hours daily the prisoners may associate for conversation and exercise. Two large common rooms, comfortably furnished, are devoted to the prisoners’ use for meeting their friends and transacting business. Messrs. Dillon and Brennan called today and saw Messrs. Boyton and Walsh. Bovton describes his arrest as a violation of his rights as an American citizen, N'allv reached Dublin tonigbt, by train from the west. The platform was crowded. When he was being put into a cab he shouted, “For every man arrested let one be laid prostrate.” At Kilmaiu-ham jail he cried out, “An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.” Both exclamations were loudly cheered. The latest in the list of arrests reported are three at Claremorris, namely: J. I’. Quinn, J. Gordon and D. Ahern, members of the local league branch. A large number of prisoners will arrive by the mail train at 4 a. in. nom the Booth. A fresh batch of warrants were issued this morning. Bound (or English Prisons. Dublin, March IO.—Fifteen additional arrests have been reported to the constabulary bere. The prisoners are on their way to Kilmainham prison. They are principally of the farming class. The charges against them are almost exclusively intimidation or inciting thereto. The arrested persons include eight Land Leaguers, who were taken at Carrick-on-Shannon. A despatch from Cork says: About twenty-eight arrests have been made in this vicinity, and others are expected. It is stated that the prisoners wilt be transferred to English prisons. The principal Land Leaguers now in Dublin held a private meeting yesterday and discussed the arrests. A great effort will tie made to make the demon stratums on Sunday next, of which eighteen have been organized, important. There is but little excitement iii Dublin, except among those immediately concerned in the league. More Arrests. Dublin, March IO.—Three more arrests under the coercion bill have been made today. The men arrested have no political or social prominence, and their arrest is said to be due chiefly to personal animosity entertained against them by influential residents of their vicinage. The Dublin Mail today, commenting upon their arrest, asks whether the leaders in the land reform agitation are to be allowed to escape while their dupes and followers are daily arrested, dragged from their homes aud shut up in prison without hope of release, their lamilies meanwhile being left to starve and their business wholly ruined. Boyton Apiteali to the United Staten Minister. London, March ll.—Michael Boyton has asked Mr. Lowell, the United States minister, to interfere in his behalf, on the ground that he is a citizen of the United States. Mr. Lowell bas requested the particulars of the case. It is reported that tho American government has resolved to protect its citizens in Ireland aud to procure a speedy trial for them. Boylon'i Frleuda Sanguine of Ills .Release. London, March IO.—The friends of Boyton are sanguine that they can procure his release through American intervention. They quote the cases of john McCafferty and William Macker, who were placed on tidal for treason and felony In Cork in January, and were, on proof of being foreigners, admitted to bail on their own recognizances and told by Justice Keogh that if they left the country they would not be required to come to trial. Six months ago Boyton applied for a renewal of his American passport from Ireland, which was refused. Boyton is a brother of Faul Boyton, the well-known swimmer. Total Number of Arrests Thirty. London, March IO.—A Dublin despatch says more arrests under the coercion act were made Thursday. The total number now in jail is thirty. The French press denounces the arrest under the coercion act. A Manifesto (rom Parnell. London, March ll.—Mr. Parnell bas issued a manifesto to the electors at Coventry, in which he is very bard on the Liberals, and says the Tories would have produced a better land bill than the present one. He urges the weakening of the present ministry. discovery of Concealed Arms. Dublin, March IO.—A quantity of arms was discovered at Kanturk today, and under the town bridge IOO Croppy pikes were found by a policeman. The pikes appeared as though they had been buried some time. THE PARIS CONFLAGRATION. Particulars of the Burning; of the Mugasln Bu Printemps. iBv Cable to The Boston Globe.! Paris. March IO.—When the alarm was given that the Magasin du Printemps was burning, the firemen did what they could with the engines at their disposal, hut all was useless. Tho flames spread with frightful rapidity and within three hours    Printemps itself    was a    complete wreck.    At 0.30 o’clock    the tire    had extended    to the adjoining    houses in    the Rue de Province and was    threatening those in tho Rue de Caumatm and on the Boulevard liaussiuauD. Two steam tire engines and a few pipes were at work. The whole inside of the store was burned. Every few minutes a wall fell with au ominous crash, to the imminent peril of the firemen and soldiers on duty. The whole neighborhood is still tu a state of violent excitement, and lr is difficult to get any accurate information as to the cause of the fire, which, it is said, originated • in the carpet department on the antres*! facing the Rue de Province, and was due to the careless of one of the night-watchman. Several flrmen who were dragged out badly burned from the glowing embers, are lying in a precarious condition. At 11.80 the roof of the Printemps wa* completely destroyed and the pontage in the Rue du Havre literally crumbled to pieces. The loss is greatly aggravated by the fact that the spring season opened Monday last and, as the sales at this time of the year average several hundred thousand francs daily, the amount of new stock accumulated was very large. OTHER FOREIGN NEWS. No Fears of [Trichinae. London, March IO.—The trichinosis scare is subsiding. The Pall Mall Gazette says the greatest pork-eating nation in the world may be relied upon to take every precaution as to the health of the animal on which they depend so largely for for sustenance. Ravages of the Plans Ie Asiatic Turkey. Constantinople, March IO.— That terrible scourge the plague is advancing in Asiatic jmkej. Accounts received Bere of deaths and suffering caused by It are extremely distressing. Many cases have occurred at Bagdad, aud thoro are widespread fears-that the pestilence will be* come general. Tho Egyptian government will henceforth enforce quarantine regulations, and do all in its power to confine the plague within its present limits. The Arms Bill. London, March ll.—In tho House or Commons last evening, by applying the cloture, the arms bill was amended, and It will have its third reading today. The German Biennial Budgets Bill. Berlin, March IO.—Tho Reichstag today, by a vote of 127 to 111, decided to refer tho bill for biennial budgets and quadrennial parliaments to a committee. The Late Earthquake. Naples, March IO.—Houses continue to fall on the island of Ischia. Many more corpses have been dug from the ruins. Cable Notes. Rev. Mr. Spurgeon is seriously ill. It Is reported that a number of persons belonging to the party of the traveller Gessi. who went to Africa to influence a suppression of the slave trade, have been starved to death at Darfour. VAUGHAN ANO OLEARY. Considerable Interest Yet In the Walk— O’Leary Left Behind During the Evening, but Opens Well at the Beginning of the Fifth Day—Other Sporting Notes- [Special Despatch to The Boston Olobo.j New York, March IO.—O'Leary was thirteen miles behind Vaughan at midnight, hut during the morning lie reduced the distance to four miles. At 3 a. rn. Vaughan came out after three hours’ rest, but failed to leave bls competitor in the rear td any appreciable extent until O'Leary went off for breakfast. Rowell left the track at 11.18 o’clock last evening for good, as far as the present race is concerned, though he will appear on the track each evening for an exhibition spin. lie slept at the Putnam House last ingot, and was in tile garden tliis morning. At the reporter’s stand lie said: “No use. you know, in my staying oil the track any longer. Had I wanted I could have made BOO railes, hut it was no use. I ain sorry, as I like fun. I will now prepare myself for’the Astley race. So far as having a man on the track with me is concerned to spur mo, it makes no difference. I eau do as well alone. I am feeling well and without blemish.” The betting on O’Leary and Vaughan is even. O’Leary just said to your missionary “I will win sure.” The gate receipts up to 8 a. rn. were $10,GUS. At 11.30 O’Leary caught Vaughan, at the conclusion of the 300th mile, and for tne tirst time in the struggle less than a lap divided the two men. The spectators cheered and the band played “St. Patrick’s day.” For some time there were scarcely IOO yards between them. From the 84th to the 07th Hoar. During the afternoon th* Englishman again increased his lead, O’Leary’s efforts during the early part of the day seeming to have baa a had effect upon bim. The attendance at the garden duriug the evening was larger than on any previous night, except Sunday, and it is estimated that fully 5000 spectators were present, including a fair number of ladies, mostly in the private boxes. At 7 o’clock Vaughan, after taking over an hour’s rest, came on the track again, and walked at the rate of five miles per hour. His style was much admired and frequently applauded. O’Learv was frequently compelled to retire to his cabin for short rests, and it was stated for stimulant also. Rowel!, who had announced his retirement from the race early in the day, came on the track at 8.30 and gave an exhibition of his running powers. His efforts, which at times reached a speed of ten miles an hoar, were loudly applauded. O’Leary, after walking one mile, was compelled to seek Ills cabin for rest. The bookmakers, seeing that his chances for beating Vaughan were very slim,tried to bull Vaughan's stock, and offered to bet IOO to30 against O’Leary, with but very low takers. Vaughan is now strong and lits winning is looked upon as almost certain. At ii o’clock O Leary was still off the track. Rowell left the track at 0.10, atter completing a six-iuile exhibition run in 40 minutes. Ho seemed not the least distressed, and walked into his chbin laughing. At 0.15 Vaughan was alone on the track, having obtained 13 miles lean. He took matters comparatively easy, and limited himself to a four-miie-an-hour gait. O'Leary came on the track at 0.33, and after walking two laps retired to his cabin again, much to the disgust of the spectators. It was then openly stated that ho had been taking stimulants too frequently, but his trainer refused to give any information upon the subject. At 10.35 \ anglian, after a few lively spurts, during which he was followed by O’Leary, once more ou the track, retired, and Dan followed suit after another lap. The atmosphere was thick with exclamations of “Is this not a hippodrome?” and Dom the Public Pay Fifty Cents to Bee Hsurduilf As the score shows, both men have done work that is of but little credit to them during the evening. At 0 o’clock, the ninetieth hour, Vaughan was over 24 miles behind the best record, although within four miles of O’Leary’s performance at Chicago in 1875. At 11.30 Vaughan retired for the night, having walked OUVa miles during the day to 54% by O’Leary. He was then 17% miles ahead or the veteran, who was also in his quarters. The attendance as midnight approached dwindled to very moderate proportions, the only enlivening incident being the appearance of Campana, who was very drunk. Ho managed to get upon the track aud was then unceremoniously hustled out.

O’Leary Alone ou the Track Receives Floral Horseshoes. [Special Despatch to The Boston Globe.I Madison Squake Garden, Ne| York, March 11—1.30 a. rn.—Shortly after midnight the representative of this side of the water returned to the tanbark,and bis reappearance was tho signal for an outburst of cheering. The most pleasing incident oi the contest thus lar occurred at this time, and eclipsed all the former ovations so the Clonakllty boy. Mr. John Mullins, the furniture merchant prince of Jersey City and Brooklyn, Mrs. M. J. O’Brien, Miss Annie Mullen and Mrs. Nellie Sault met tile ex-cliainplon opposite the Madison avenue entrance, and bringing him to a standstill each member of tiffs committee presented bim with a magnificent floral horseshoe. The effect was electric, as Dan bowed and returned his acknowledgments, and the entire audience burst forth into a spontaneous cheer. Vaughan was in his tent, and Rowell, with his trainer, had left tho garden for the Ashland House half an hour previously. O’Leary from that moment dashed off into his old-time spurts, and revived the interest in tho match, the belting lieing changed in bis favor. When Vaughan retired he was 17% miles in the lead, hut at the beginning of the 08tb hour O’Leary had gained three miles, the score at I a. rn. being Vaughan, 342 miles 3 laps; O'Leary, 328 miles 4 laps. _ OTHER SPORTING NEWS.

Several New Appointments, bat tho Anxious Seats Still Full. [Special Despatch to The Boston Globe.! Washington, March IO.—A single objection in tho 8cnate carries a report over one day. This the Republicans interposed when Mr. Pendleton presented the committees today. It is understood tonight that .their policy is to interpose all tho delays allowed under the rules. Usually tho committees pro adopted at once. In this case, however, two ballots can be interposed on each committee before its adoption. As there are thirty-nine committees to he voted upon there would he seventy-eight ballots interposed, besides other motions that can and will be made by the Republicans. In tho distribution of the work there seems to he no special criticism made by Republicans. Some of the new senators, however, have l etter positions than they would have obtained had the Republicans made up their list as a minority. The total number of committee assignments is 147 Democratic and 122 Republican. The assignments of the new Democratic senator* are as follows: Jackson of Tennessee to foreign relatione, claims, pensions and Mississippi river; G 1 oi'gc of Missi Sippi to agriculture, claims, education aud labor; Gorman of .Maryland to naval affairs, District of Columbia, patents and printing; Fair of Nevada to mines, public lands and claims; Camden of West Virginia to public lands, District of Columbia and pensions.

Sewell is placed on the special committee on cattle epidemics. Vacancies have been leit for two Republicans on the committee on territories aud for one on claims. Mr. Cameron of Wisconsin and Mr. Frye of Maine ara left somewhat iii the cold. Mr. Sherman is assigned to the judiciary and appropriations. 'Hie difference as to theSouthern representation on the llnnnco committee seems to have been compromised by placing Grover of Oregon thereon instead of CamJcn of West Virginia, as was at lim intended. Mr. Camden’s connection with a national bank as its president was made a reason for objection.

[Special Despatch to The Boston Globe.I Washington, March IO.—The Republicans are finding the Hayes veto of the funding bill to be a Trojan horse. Democrats like Senators Voorhees, Beek, Vest and the western and southern men in general are loud in declaring if there Is no extra session ami a consequent success in passing a working funding act that tho Democracy will carry every doubtful State and make inroads on the Republican congressional districts. Senator Voorhees said tonight the issue was a clear one. Mr. Hayes’legacy to his party was placing it before the country squarely on the side of the national hanks. It was just such an Issue as swept Jackson into power, and it would give the Democracy a new jeaso of life. It afforded the best opportunity to throw dead questions overboard, and the Democrats would an it. Tho Indiana senator is only giving voice to what is being said constantly by Southern and Western Democrats. There is no doubt hut they nope tho President will adhere to hts present objections to an extra session. Among Republicans there is a wide diversity of opinion. Such men as Ingersoll, Conkling, Edmunds, Jones of Nevada, Flan of New York. Cameron and tho larger number of their representative’s from the West and the doubtful States who are in the city are openly and above board In favor of calling an extra session. There is likely to he. a concerted move to express this feeling to the President direct. Theio Is reason for .staling, also, that Mr. Blaine coincides with these views. Of course there is no doubt that the chief animas is a party one. Oil tho other hand the President is opposed to a called session, and has so expressed himself in a quiet way to various public men who have broached the' subject. It is objected that the Michigan vacancy cannot he filled for sixty days, and that the probabilities are strongly against Governor Plaisted’s working in Republican interests by an early call for an election to fill the vacancy of Mr. Frve. As to Morton’s district there is great doubt, though tho chances are esteemed netter now for an administration man than they will be next fall. Little fear is felt as to Hawley’s successor. The situation in the House is such that the White House has fears of Republican inability to organize. To this there are those favoring a call who reply that the Green hackers will vote with the Republicans in organizing tho House. They would so vote because a Republican organization would secure the admission of Lowe of Alabama to bls seat. Hyatt Smith and Braumm are expected to vote with the Republicans. The treasury 1b disposed to take sides against an extra sossion upon tho ground that tho 6 per cents to fall due by the 1st of June can he handled without in any way straining credit or disturbing values. It is declared that the entire two hundred and olio millions of 6s can ho taken up. I here are on hand unissued $104,000,000 iii 4 per cents and fifty of 4V a s. With the surplus revenues which can be applied and what can he realized on the sale of bonds, the officials are claiming the whole amouut of (is can he more than wiped out or funded at a lower rate. The amount that can he paid right out before December next is set down at about $100,000,000. Those Republicans who oppose an extra session say that they will lie able in this way to make an argument which will frilly offset the Democratic attack aa to hank affiliations. Greenbackers like General Weaver are disRpsed to chuckle over such a suggestion. As the chief argument they made on the House floor was against any funding at all, it will suit them to nave their position taken bv conservative Republicans. The Bayard amendment, which was prepared at the treasury anckadded by Senator Bayard to the Sundry civil appropriations Is ai follows: “That the secretary of the treasury Viay at any time apply the surplus money in the treasury, not otherwise appropriated, or so much thereof as he Blay consider proper, to the purchase or redemption of United States bonds, provided the bonds *o purchased or redeemed snail constitute no part of the sinking fund, but shall lie cancelled.” IN GENERAL. A Large Order for Standard SFver Dollars. [Special Despatch to The Boston Globe.! Washington, March IO.—The largest single crder for standard silver dollars ever received at the treasury ainoe the Silverhill became a law came in today. A Philadelphia bank ordered 100.000, which was shipped In sixty hags, weighing IOO pounds each. Three tons or silver dollars is more than the amount coined at all the mints In the United States in one day. There is a great deal of speculation among the treasury officers regarding the purposes to which the Philadelphia bank intends to apply its supply of silver. Treasurer Ciifillnn was of the opinion that it was to meet a payment upon some ancient lease which in its terms stipulated silver as the I coin to be paid. Th- RpolW-Seckrrs. The officesecbers expect groat things from the cabinet meeting tomorrow. It is generally under-■ stood that the bureau appointments will be with-! beld a tew weeks. In the matter of the coilector-j ships of customs, New Y'ork Is conceded to ex-Sen-I ator Horsey: Lieutenaut-Governor I'inchback of ! Louisiana has an eye on New Orleans, and j Amos J. Beers’ friends aro urging him for ! tho port of New Haven. The oontest for I tile New York nostinastership is said to He be-: tween Pearson, Mr. James’ efficient assistant, and I John I. Davenport, I'nited States supervisor of j elections in the metiopolls. A Campbellite j preacher called on tile President today, and ! urged Ids profession and denomination as grounds I for being taken care of. The President kindly informed the caller that government was not a church organization. Tbs Old Crowd. The ex-president hopes to live in quiet, for a time at leaat, at his old home iii Fremont. His cabinet is disposed of as follows: Mr. Evarts and family remain in Washington until May and then return to New Y'ork. Mr. Evarts is said to be much pleased with bis appointment as chairman of tne United States representation at tne monetary conference at Paris. Ex-Secretary Golf in resuming Ids old place as district attorney in West Virginia will. with Evarts, be all of the old cabinet, who remain in government service. Ex-Attorney-Oeneral Devens resumes law practice in Poston next fall; Ex-Secretary Schurz is to give attention to In* St. Louis paper’s interests; ex-rostnia«ter-Ocneral Maynard and ex-Secretary Rnmsav will find solace from politics in property cases In Tennesee and Minnesota; ex-Vice-President YVheoler contemplates an extended European tour. We bura: Hued for Damage,. A suit for $200,000 damages was entered in the Circuit Court of this district to-day by diaries IX Gilmore, claim agent and lanO-liounty broker, against Carl Schurz, ex-secretary of the interior, for injuries alleged to have been douc Gilmore by bis disbarment on April 14, 1880, from practice before tho Interior Department. Tho action was taken by Schurz after an investigation of the charge against Gilmore of lim ing bribed Frank 0. Ball, clerk in tho land office. The plaintiff claims that he had spent the amount claimed In advertising and otherwise preparing to obtain and carry on an extensive business as claim attorney. Schurz issued an order that he should not lierecognized as attorney in any claim before any bureau of the Interior Department. This he claims affected fees amounting to nearly $3,000,000. A Lung (Session of the Senate Probable. Senators state that the executive session will not adjourn nnder a month, and may be longer In session. The Chinese treaty is likely to give riso to a protracted debate, as Mr. Farley of California proposes to try and amend Hie emigration treaty, This will, however, be opposed by all the other Pacific States senators. There are some legal questions raised as to the commercial treaty. General Miller express** himself as content with the work of our commissioners. Anxious Internal Revenue Collectors.

AUGUSTA, Me., March IO.—A petition is in circulation here to aid iii procuring tile appointment of Daniel F. Davis to tho position of collector of the port of Bangor. General Smith, tile present incumbent, although ho stands well at headquarters in Washington, is not a tool of tho Blaine aud Hamlin ring, and therefore must be removed to make room for Davis.

Then Mr. Ritchie of Winterport presented the minority report, setting forth that tliev, Messrs. Ritchie, Uridgeham and Taber, could not join in tho premises and conclusions of the majority. They had their report ordered printed.

The motion was lost, amt the Unionists    scored    their first victory    of the session. So agitated were tho Republicans over tills matter that tonight tiny held a secret caucus for the purpose of urging their members to attend more regularly at the sessions of tile Legislature so that in the future the scenes ot today may not be repeated.

HOC CHOLERA. Where Coastil Crump Got his Figures la Regard to Its Prevalence In the West, I Special Despatch to The Boston Globe.] Chicago, March IO,—Perhaps the most indignant set of men in the country over Consul Crump’s report of the ravages of hog cholera and trichinosis was the Chicago Board of Trade. It appointed a committee, whoso investigations in some degree relieve Mr. Crump of odium. It finds that he has been deluged with communications from the YVest giving the most alarming accounts of the ravages of the disease, and that newspapers with articles marked have been constantly forwarded to him at Philadelphia, the object being undoubtedly to influence the market. It is stated that Mr. Crump based bis report largely on the State agricultural reports of Illinois. Investigation of these shows some alarming figures. The report for 1878 signed by 8.    I). Fisher, secretary, says 1,445,000 bogs died of cholera in this State that year. The report of 1879 gives the number of hoes and pigs dying of that disease as 1,391,000. Tne report for 1880 gives tho cholera deaths at only 227.259. I bene figures have stir-prized the Hoard of Trade mer, quito aa much as did Mr. Crump’s consular report, and they have sent a committee to Springfield to investigate the State agriculture department aud ascertain where Mr. Fisher got his data. It is feared that by these reports Mr. Crump's representations to the British government will he sustained, and that Secretary Blaine, iii having contradicted them, will be placed in an embarrassing predicament. THE WEATHER. Killed by Strong Drink. Investigation by Medical Examiner Draper into the death of Abraham Holmes at the Boston Hotel shows that the man came to his death some time between Tuesday night and Thursday morning from fits caused by excessive drinking. In bis possession were found papers which showed that he was once the owner of tile estate 81 Camden street, and afterwards janitor of the Union building, ti) State street; also, that he had friends at Strathwajr, Canada.
