Mr. O'Donnell warna tho authorities to work with redoubled zeai to dofend and protect thrfiatentxl persons. Mr Gladstone, In a published statement, an- nounces that he has received a flood of coni- oiunicatloBa from every part of the kingdom expressive of horror and Indignation at the rrlaie. He says It la only just to stats that DODO are more remarkable for fervor and sin- :entv than the larpo number from all ports of Ireland. He wishes to express his sense of the genuine feeling ahown by tho communications, ind his personal thaaiks for the sympathy manifested. In tbo House of Lflrda this evenlne tha Mar- quis of Lancisdowne announced that in conse- quence of the recent Ministerial statements relative to Impending measures for protection yt life and property in Ireland, he dropped tbo motion which he had announced against tbo I rUh policy of tho Government.

The says: "We do not remem- ber to have ever seen at such crisis so remarkable si display of com- posure and restraint The Government cannot complain that this trying occasion hai been turned to account for ths> purposes of faotioB." A dispatch from Cork says: "The subscrip- tions to the reward fund now amouat to Tha excitement has In 110 wise abated. Business Is partly suspended. The opinion galas ground that no resident Irlahmaa is connected with the murder, but that O'Donovan Rosaa'g agents are guilty of ths deed. A number of tourists landed at Queenstown ou Monday and Tuesday front. America were so shocked on bearing of the murder that they Immediately took flight to England nnd the Continent, though they had Intended to visit Ireland to view Its scenery." CHESTER, May Police authorities of Dublin telegraphed last night to the railway authorities here to arreat a man in tbe train from Holrhead who was suspected of being concerned in tho murders, ana tbo man was taken into custody on the arrival of the train.

THB rESSSTLVANIA LBADBS FIH8T OBSTI- NATE AND THEN Off THE PLACE OP CON- GRESSMAN NOT FILLED NO OTHBR CHANGE IN THE SLATE. HABHIBIIURO, Penn., May Cam- eron has bedn forced to back down by the un- ruly hands of the machine-made delegates to his own convention. This Is an evidence both of his own weakness and of the imper- fect training of- bis political servants. The fault In this case probably lies with tbe County Committees. It is the custom in Pennsylvania, somo months before tbe as- sembling of ft Stato Convention, for the sub- mncliino to send out notices to the Chairman of tbe County Committees, calling tbotr attention to the Importance of tho in- terests Involved in tho campaign, and urging them to send but discreet men as deloeatos to tho conveatlon. in this CARO means "obedient." There Is no sus- picion that Col. M. 8. Quay, Senator Cam- eron's henchman in-chief, neglected bis duty ia this matter. Ho is a political manager of great ability, calm, passionless, and determined not lovely to look upon, but tenacious of his purposes and faithful to his master. But In- atoad of choosing a manageable lutof delegates, willing to receive orders ntnl execute them unquestionably, the coumiltteo, through BO mo terrible bliniderltiE, has sent to Hurrlsburjr a body of hard-hemlt'U and stubborn fellows, stnul nut nt nil in awn of Cameron, ami critlciKo or condemn hlx plans with painful freedom.

Tho Independents utterly repudiate him, und thoiibuads of tbo unforgiving Btuhvarta would scratch bin nacno if it were pbiL-ed on thu tk-kot. It vras repeatedly iissorted that ho would bo beaten if nomi- nated, and that he would bu a dead weight upon tho ticket, endangering tho success of thu othur cundulatca.

To .such a pitch wns tho opposition to U'olfe car- nod tbnt a handbill appeal tug to tbe delegates to make n etand-up fight against bun In tbo convention was put into tho printers' hands to bo struck off for distribution to morrow mg. Later In tho afternoon the manacrerc became alarmed. Cooper, Quay, Kutun, and the oth- ers went to Cameron and plainly told him that thero wns too much jalap in tbo dose and tbo convention would not swallow it Tho boss" vriii for a long tune obdurate. Ho declared that "VVolfo must bo nominated for Lioutenant-Governor. Lot thusn bc-at bim at tbe polls if they want to, but nominate him wo will and shall." ho said. But a.s tbestorm gathered force, Cameron too, got scared. There) wero symptoms of a dangerous mooting, mid. In trutL, the prc-soiit master of tbo Republican Party in Pennsylva- nia is none too sure of his ground. In an at- tempt to force an unpopular and foolish nomi- nation down the tb.ron.ts of sucli a convention aa will H.sHcmblo to-morrow morning, ho would probably beaten. Many delegates told him so his faro, and toward sundown he yielded tho point, thusestabliihinsra perilous precpdt-nt for a man of his position and Aspirations. Whilo Insisting that tbo nomination of Wolfe woo tho proper thing, he reluctantly consented to Jrop him and restore .State Senator IV. T Dnvios, of Bradford County, to fii3 orignml plnce on tho candidate for tho Lieutenant-Governorship. Under tho previous arrangement Uavlcs wns to bo put for Congressman at Largo, n plarn winch ho accepted most unwillingly nnd with ill-hn- mor. To night ho is greatly pleased at tho un- expected turn In affairs which puts him back where ho wants to be. This ckmigo loft tho placo of Congressman at Large open once moro, and it was generally expected tbut Col. Dick, of Crawford County. would bo named for tho candidacy. It was thought best, however surprising it may seem, to trust tho convention to the oitont of selecting tho man for this ono placo on tho ticket Tho managers favor tho nomination of ex Stato Treasurer liutlor, gen- erally called Farmer" Butler, as a conces- sion to tho Independents from which thoy would expect good roKtilts. Hut Col. Dick Is disposed to make a light for the nomination, and as ho has tbo entire Philadelphia delega- tion to support him and is generally well liked it was decided to leave the matter an open question. Tho prospect to-night fg that William Henry Howie of Philadelphia, will be so vigorously gushed for tho Supremo Court Judgeshlp that majority of tho delegates will fall Into line to enable Don Cameron to fulfill his promise to Wayne Mat; Veagh. Judge Brown, of PIttsburg. now has, according to the claims of his agcmts, 70 Tho Phil- adelphia oolt'Kation, at a caucus hold to night, voted, IKJ to 13, to support for this placo K. Carroll Drewster, another of Browster's "Reports." Thin vote does not amount to an enforcement of tho unit rule. It means that Mr. James Mc- Uanos has been able to mako 83 of city delegates promise not to vote for Kawlo, but It is not believed that McManos will carry bin opposition, to Kawlo to the ex- tent of castlnc bis 33 votes with tbe Brown Mr. llawlo In almost unknown to tho whole body of delegates and bas nobody working In his personal Interest He Is very likely to get the nomination. The only other place on tbo ticket la that of Secretary of In-' Mrnal Affairs, and for that thu name of John M. Qreer Is tbe only one mentioned. At midnight there la no reason to that to-morrow's convention will bo disturbed! jy unusual Jars or any Impertinent in-, ilon of the wishes or Interests of, tho people of Pennsylvania upon the attention of the delegates. While they ore bold enough to differ with the boss In mat- Mrs of detail and persistent enough to carry ;helr point, they still have a proper detesta- tion of tbe absurd theory that an >Q1ce Is a public trust, not to bo lold or used for personal gain, and f any one among them should be so foolish as to indulge any drivel about the necessity of reform and all that sort of thine ;hey would at once find means to Inform ilm that he had got Into the wrong ineetlng- louw. None of the delegates BBT any- thing about tho resolutions or think of ;btnii, but this minor detail ban not jeen overlooked by the managers. The platform of the convention will consist of the protocol of the Continental Hotel con- lerence, supplemented by a strong tariff reso- lution. It is arranged that Mr. Kirkpatrick, )f Northampton County, shall Chairman, and ex-Attorney-General G-eorgo Lear, of Bucks County, permanent Chairman. DETERMINING HISTORIC POI.VTS.

BosTOrT, May Tho committee of tho Legislature on redfstrictlng the State reported a plan in the Senate to-day providing for 12 Congressional districts, to which the State ia now entitled under the new apportionment, one of which only, made up entirely of Boston wards or parts of wards, is, according to the last election returns, Democratic, the others being Republican. Other por- tions of Boston are apportioned, to outlying; cities aud towns. Tbo proposed district wholly in Boston is numbered tho Fourth, as Is the present district, represented by a Demo- crat. It retains of the old Fourth District Enst Boston and the north end of tho city, the Democratic stronghold, and draws in tboso portions ef the present Third District which aro strongly Democratic, while it leaves out Beacon Hill {and tho back Bay districts, and Chelsea, Revere, and Wlntbron, making it a much stronger Democratic district than the the present Fourth District. Tho now Third District, now Mr. Rannoy'a, takes iu a portion of the Back Bay district, tho south end of Hanney's Hox- bury, Dorchester, nnd Wewt Roxbury districts of Boston and the town of Milton, tho latter at present in Congressman Harris's district and West Roxbury being in Congressman Candlor's district. Beacon Hill, 13 on ton, is drawn Into tho now Fifth District, with Brighton and outlying towns as far ns Burlington, Including tho cities of Cambridge and Somorvllle, where Congressman Bowman liven, nnd tbe town of Waltbntn, Uen.

We cannot let action be delayed on this subject until another Legislature assembles.

WHAT THE SENATE la DOING, roon PHOSPECT OF THE PASSAGE OF A BAIL- WAY COMMISSION PASSED. ALBANY, May Boyd this inorn- Ing asked that tbo Kallroad Commission bill, now on tbe order of third readings In tbe Senalo. bo laid aside until Tnursdar next. No one objecting. It was so ordered. The Tammany Senators, who are the authors of tbo peculiar method of appoint- ing the Commissioners provided for In tbe bill, have discovered that they cannot got enough voios to Pass it in Its present shape, and they want time to consider what modifications they will consent to. They say they are determined, so faraslbeir nffuoncB goes, to pus some kind of a commission jlll that shall go Into effeot this year. This cannot jo done without their votes and those of all the Republican Senators combined, as the regular Dem- ocrats have agreed In caucus to vole for no bill which gives Ibe appointment of the Commissioners, or any of thorn, lo tbe present Governor. Even If they should puss such a bill, without tbe votes of :he regular Democratic Senators, It Is not at all Ikely that It would be concurred In by tba Assem- bly. There Is very little prospect, therefore, that any commission bill will pass taut sbaJl meet the views of the Tammany Mounters as at present ex- pressed, and. unless tbe regular aad liepubtloans unite on a bill thai shall give the elec- tion of Ibe Commissioners lo the people, or their appolntmeal lo Ibe Governor lo be elected nejl Fall, no commission bill la likely to pass this seulon. Tbe session nf tbe Senate lo-day was confined to the third reading of letters and to the Introduction of resolutions to.push bills ahead by dlscbantltm tbe Committee or tbe Whole from their further consideration and ordering them to a third read- ing. This la a method of legislation always re- sorted to In tho lasl days of Ihe session and under which most of tbe doubtful bills aro slipped through. A single objection, however, any bill from being pushed ahead In tbat manner, and thus far tbo objection bas been interposed whenever tho bill nought to be advanced was of a ausoiotous charaater. An attempt vnui made to advance the Kiclse bill for New-York and Brook- lyn OB agreed upon by ibe delegations from those cities by moving It forward to the Orst Committee of tbe whole. It met witb a nearly naanlmoua opposition from tbe country Senators, After nh olaoitisjloit of ths) inhtftit A nuJorHr of tbo Senate Inallv to make the Ml a special order for PriTdar of tfali week. tbU bill paased the bly It virtually abolished tbe Civil Dtmjure aot.
