Greene, Blumenthal, Bush, Con- nelly and Schaaf were appointed a caucus Martin of New York moved that committee be empowered to call a upon i he written request of fifteen Democratic' assemblymen outside the com- mittee. Mr. Blumenthal opposed this as needless. Mr. Martin said his object was to give the minority power to secure a caucus on state and party issues for three years. He meant CO personal reflection on the leaders of the committee, but he believed in consultations. Mr. Sbeehan thought there was some force in Mr. Martin's remarks. There had been no caucus for five years except to nominate officers. This was because caucuses had been deemed unwise. Yet the policy framed by the assemblymen and pursued by the state executive had brought success, and he thought it unwise to deviate from it. Mr. Henderson of Herkiiner favored Mr. Sheehan's view. Mr. Greene said that during tbe five years' chairmanship of the committee he had never refused to call a caucus, and would always call one on request if the committee deemed it wise. Mr. Martin's motion was lost and the cau- cus adjourned. REPUBLICAN ASSEMBLY CAUCUS. Hamilton Fish, Jr., called the Republican assembly caucus to order at last evening. Gen. N. M.

Mr. Morgan Makes an Argument in Favor of t'.ie Emigration of the southern Ne- groes to Says the Kace Feel- Ing is Store Hitter in the North Than in the South. "WASHINGTON, Jan. the senate yes- terday after the introduction and reference of several bills and resolutions, Mr. Morgan of Alabama spoke at great length ou the bill of Senator Butler to provide for emigration of colorel people from the southern states. He himself i-i favor of voluntary emigration of the colored people from lha South, having reached the conclusion tbat tbero was a natural incongruity and an irre- pressible conflict between the races which nothing could cure except tbeir final separa- tion. The return of tbs negro to Africa was tha final and only solution of the prob- lem. It v. as undeniable that the aversion between tbe races had greatly increased since the abolition of slavery, and it would in- crease so long as a large proportion of the population was of African race. This feeling was not so intense in the South as in the North. It was not so strong bo- tween the negro and his former masters as it between the negro and those who had slaves.

Emperor of Russia She was brought up at tbe court of her graudf ither, Charles Augustus, the friend of who speaks in one of his letters of the "many- sided and harmonious culture of the Princess Augusta." Hsr elder sister Maria married Prince Charles of and she married the prince's brother, the late Emperor Will- iam, June LONDON, Jan. death of the Dow- ager Empress Augusta, though from the nature of her illness and considering her ad- vanced age, not unexpected, has caused a profound feeling of sorrow in Berlin. The attack of influenza with wbich she was seized tbe utmost virulence of the malady gave early indications of developing into pneumonia, and culminated in that disease despite the strenuous efforts of her physi- cians to avert it The scenes in the streets after the announcement of her death vividly recalled those following tbe demise of her husband, the late Emperor William L, and the reverential demeanor of the crowd which throng the vicinity of the palace strongly suggests a renewal of the veneration in which the old monarch's memory is held by all Germans rathe- than a tribute to the one just dead irrespective of her association with him. In consequence of the death of the fiowager empress all of the preparations which already making for a brilliant celebration of the birthday of Emperor William II on Jan. 27 have been abandoned, and the occasion will be allowed to pass with- out special recognition. MR. GLADSTONE ASKED TO SPEA.K OUT. The Pall Mall Gazette is stoutly inveighing against Mr. Gladstone's silence in regard to questions of vital interest to the Liberal party and the country which must become subjects of parliamentary consideration immediately upon the reassembling of the house, and delares that his continued re- ticence in the face of the popular demand for an expression of his opinions is producing a revolt in t j Liberal ranks with not even the ex-premier can quell if he does not imme- diately take steps to that end. This feeling is especially true with reference to Mr. Par- nell, whose complications with Capt. O'Shea demand tint his relations to tbe Liberal party, pending tbe settlement of the issue, shall be denned by tbe leader of tbe Liberals, since it is the fact that a question affecting the continuance of Mr. Parnell's leadership of the National party has been raised by many of that gentleman's followers. PORTUGAL ON THZ DEFENSIVE. The Paris Debats is persistently, and evi- dently with some effect, egging on the Portu- guese in their disputes with England aud is foremost in giving counsel to the Lisbon government which, if followed, will inevit- ably lead to the complete discomfiture of King Carlos and his ministers. It may be nothing more than a mere coincidence, but it is certainly significant that many of the means of defense whose application to the Tagus have been suggested by the Debats have been put into requisition by tbe Portu- guese, so that tbe water leading to Lisbon teems with torpedoes and hidden obstacles to navigation, the government indulging in specious arguments and futile protests against England's ultimatum, ap- parently -with the sole objecs of gaining time in wbich to perfect its defensive prepara- tions.

Tee A'lti-Slavery society of Belgium is ujg to send an expedition to the Upper directed against the traffic in slaves in that region. Tbe country selected for their operations is that in which tbe trade in human chattels is under the exculsive con- trol of the wjley and redoubtable Tippoo Tibb and it remains to be seen to whaJ. extent the expedition will be able to obtain fco- cperation without wbich the venture would seem to be a iniitless if not a dangerous un- dertaki g. Tue Nurth German Gazette bas embarked fai a crusade against German trusts, which it declares are inimical to tbe welfare and pro- gress of the country. Tbe recent change in tbe Japanese ministry is conceded to be m every retpect favorable to the of German iufluence in Japan. Tbe latest rote sent by Lord Salisbury to the Portuguese minister of foreign affairs re- quested Portugal to immediately order ber agents in Africa to put a stop at cmo" similar to attributed to Pinto, and intimatod ibat their con- tinuR' r-e would jeopardize friendly diplo- matic discussions on the questions at issue.
