WASHINGTON, Aug. report of Consul- General at Apia has been received at the Stale Department, but it is being kept secret by Acting Secietary Wharton.'vEt is learned, however, that it corroborates the re- poit that the natives are dissatisfied becunse the dual government has not been formed, and there are fears of trouble. It is also intimated that Sewall, in his well-known blunt man- ner, raps the foreign representatives pretty severely in his report over some of their actions, and that it. is because of this plain language that the report is being kept secret.

The Senate met at 10 o'clock, and, after routine business, took up the Kiver and Har- bor bill. Quay made u personal explanation as to remarks attributed to him in the report of the Republican caucus las! night. He hati represented as saying that he did not wish to hav? the Southern members of the House of Representatives yelpingathis heels, urged ou by the Speaker. He had made no such remark and bad made no reflection on the distinguished pre- siding oHicer of' tttfe 'other -branch of Congress. Hoar expressed the hope that it be understood tlrat because Quay felt .called upon to- such a statement that ofber people were also called upon to contradict the mendacious statements as to them on a similar subject. The Senators knew the statements as to himself were mendacious. Frye moved to proceed to the con- sideration of the river and harbor bill. Edmunds demanded the yeas and nays a vote was taken aud the motion was agreed yeas 36, nays so the Senate proceeded to the considera- tion of that bill. Hampton having asked Frye to al- low him to have a bill taken, up for action, Frye excused himself -for de- cliriing to do so" and said that he hail asked the Finance Committee to let him have two days for the considera- tion of the river and harbor bill to- day and to-morrow aud that he should ask the Senate to remain in session to-morrow until the bill was finished. He did not feel at liberty, therefore, to yield any time for any other business. Amendments were reported by the Committae on Appropriations and agreed to by the Senate. There was one, inserting for the entrance tp Galvestou barbor, Texas. The House proceeded to the consid- eration of the conference leport on the Indian aporopriation bill, Tho Mllvcr Market. By Associated Press WASHINGTON, Aug. The Direc- tor of the Mint said Uii.s afiornoon that he Pxpeoted to purchase ounces of silver to-morrow, and expects to pay a trifle more than the London market rate for it. lie defended the policy of refusing to make public the exact price the department paid for silver, as the prices paid for silver had never been made public hpretofore; so there was no new doparture. He con- tinued: "Tbere will be no attempt on the part of the Tn-asury Depart- ment to buy silver cheap, or to beat down prices. The Government will pay the full market price, and will buy ounces monthly if it is to be had. TUe Administration desires to see tho prtue of silver advance, and there will be no attempt in the execu- tion of the new law to throw obstacle? In Us way." Tho amount' of silver offered aft Trt-asury Department to-day was ounces, of which ounces accepted.

De- Maiden Effort of the San Francisco. Cruiser THE SAILOR'S VERNACULAR. IMITera How HlH the A sailor's talk is a dialect as distinct from our ordinary language as Choctaw or Esquimau. English words are used, but their signification is utterly remote from the meaning they have in shore parlance. A yard ashore means the yard about a house at sea it means a spar. Every coachman and the ma- jority of boys know what a whip is, but at sen it is a tackle formed by a single rope run through a block. A lizard is not a reptile, but a piece of rope with a thimble or ring spliced into it, just as the cathead is a piece of timber, and bees are stout pieces of plank. Beating is a< t striking, but Railing by tacks. A bonnet is not for ladies' wear, but a piece of canvas laced to the jib, while a cat's paw has as little to do with the feline'as fiddles and harpings have with music.

An unknown bur- itlar was very neatly trapped when he attempted to enter the house of Mr. Naugle, at Thirty-eighth and Cum- mings streets, yesterday. Mary Sulli- van, the hired girl, was alone in the house at the time, and the man, who was masked, presented a revolver at her head and ordered her to show him where the family jewels were. She conducted him into another room and opened a drawer in a dresser, but stead of getting the jewels, seized a revolver, and, pointing it at the in truder's head, compelled him to sur- render his weapon and leave the house.

The naval officers on board were greatly pleased, and seem to think she uwill exceed the limit of speed required. An official trial trip will probably not occur before the lat- ter part of next week.

By Associated Press.] SPKIXOFIELD Aug. England Homestead says: Apples will be scarcer and more costly this season than for many years. There is but half a crop of winter fruit in the famous Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia, and still greater reductions in the apple belt of Southern and West- ern Ontario and Michigan. In Maine and limited sections of Vermont and New Hampshire there is a fair yield. Throughout Southern New Eng'land, New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and the interior States generally the promise of winter fruit is worse than ever before known. The great apple belt of Western New York-has almost no crop whatever. Curiously enough, there is an area in Missouri and Kan- sas, within, a radius) of 400 iriiles of Kansas ia a phe- nomenal crop of winter apples of fine quality. Eastern buyers are al- ready gobbling it up at good prices. Summer and fall apples are also short and command good prices. Peaches are a practical failure in Southern Ontario and Michigan, as well as in the Southern States and Connecticut, Pears and plums yield unevenly, but far below the average crop. Grapes, however, are an im- mense crop, save in sections of New Jersey and tho South, where the black rot is playing havoc willi the fiuit. The scarcity of other fruits will sustain the market for grapes. The Home- stead's preliminary report of the potato crop indicates a disastrous shortage in, the South and West, cur- tailed in New York, and a fair average ui New England, if spared by tho rot, which is now making its. appearance. Potatoes in Ireland are blighted, and they are also rotting in Scotland. NO. 117. GOODS. HATS BOOTS AND SHOES. My Summer Stock Of- Complete, 4- The Latest and Best Styles op.

DeWittTalmage writes in the Ladies' Home Journal as follows: What a morning that was of the world's first wedding! Sky without a cloud. Atmosphere without a chill. Foliage without a crumpled leaf. Meadows without u thorn. It shall be ia church, the yreat temple of the world, sky domed, mountain pillared, papphire roofed. The sparkling waters of the Gihon and the Heddekel will njake the fount of the temple. Larks, robina and goldfinches will chant the wedding march. Violet, lily and rose burning incense in the morning sun. Luxuriant vines sweeping their long trulls through the forebt stery of, a spring morning. Wild beasts statidittg outside the circle look- ing on, like family servants from the back door gazing upon the uupitals; the eagle, king of biids; the locust, king of insects; the lion, king of beasts, waiting. Carpet of grass like emerald for the human -pair to walk on. Hutu of excitement, as there is before a ceremony. Green blades and leaves whispering, and the bircia a chatter each one to his mate. Hush, all the clouds. the birds. Hush, the waters, for the king of the human race advances, and his bride. Perfect man, leading to the altar a perfect woman. (jod, her lather, gives awny the bride, and angels are the witnesses, and tears of morning dew stand in the blue eyes of the violets. And Adam takes the round haud that has never been worn with work or stung with pain into his stout grasp and says: This is bone of my bone aud flesh of mv iiesh." Tumults of joy break and all the trees of the wood clap their naods, and all the galleries of the for- est sound with carol and chirp and chant, and the circle of Edeuic happi- ness is complete; for while every quail hath answering quail, and every fish and every fowl an- swering fowl, and every beast of the forest a
