Should they cot succeed at tho ballot- the result of a trial them ae a small minority of dis- tempered ought not tho less to be tolerated in any subsequent proceedings and unlcis in. deed they should go outside of the law ms conspirators and revolutionists. In that contingency there ought not to be, and we thiulc there would not be, any hesitation ia the minds of the intelli- gent body of the American people as to the duty and necessity of putting them down "with a strong aad inexora- ble urm as enemies of the peace and or iCDic.

Provincial Correipondfrux anticipates a favorable result Jrorn Count Bchouva- loff's efforts. It says that the latest de- clarations of tho British ministers, well as the views manifested at St. Pe- tersburg, are full of wishes and .iopes of the renewed consolidation of a Euro- pean peace. General Current LONDON, Hay Standard an- nounces it more than probable that the congress will meet during the first fort- night. Also, on account of unsettled affairs at Constantinople, the English lleet will move to Princes Island. The Press Association understands that, replying to the request of the Duke of Westmins'.er to receive a depu- tation -with a peace declaration figued by persons, the Marquis of Salisbury has stated that he is unable to receive the deputation. LONDON, May news comes from St. Petersburg, Berlin and Paris. The Berlin dispatch says: Count Schouraloff expressed to Lord Russell, British ambassador, the hope that negotiations between England and Russia would lead to peaceful ar rangement. The Tima Vienna corre- spondent, however, says in order to appreciate the exact value of the an- nouncement of a speedy meeting of the congress, it must be mentioned that it emanates from financial sources. As for political and diplomatic circles, they are more silent and reserved than, ever. LONDON, May afternoon's Globe says two unarmed Russian war vessels from Crocstadt passed through ;ho sound clandestinely Monday night. It is supposed that their destination is America. Russian agents are engaged n Sweden inspecting sb.ippi.Dg with a view to purchase of cruisers. ST. May ia offi- cially announced the emperor will to- morrow receive the Shah of Persia.

LONDON, May Turks de- 'eated the Cretan insurgents in several encounters. The British consul at Canea has proposed an armistice. There is in tho repsrt that .he Russian military authorities have 'orbidden Bessarabian deputies in the Roumanian parliament to attend the meetings of that assembly. Though Austria refuses to permit Hontenegro to acquire Artivari, lest it Becomes virtually a Russian port, she Iocs not object to the acquisition of Spczza, which will give Ihe Montene- grins access to the sea. The Austrian jrccuutioiis in Transylvania are being hastened. Tho Vienna correspondent of the Duibj 3degraph says: The relations be- tween Austria and Roumania have be- come closer. It also says that Emperor William advised Prince Charles to yield Bessarabia and abdicate if the Roumanians raised difficulties, but the Prince refused and -went to the army. The German interference has given of- fense at Vienna. General Mantculfel has arrived in Vienna. It is reported ho is the bearer of nn autograph letter from Emperor William to Emperor Francis Joseph. there is any founda- tion for these rumors or not, it seems certain, tbe feeling in Austrian ministe- rial circles is becoming distrustful of a peaceful issue and more and more anti- Itussian.] LONDON, May Times, in an editorial on Sir John Holke's reply toMr. Gourlay it; tho Commons last 'evening, expresses tho utmost confi- dence that England has nothing to fear from Alabamaa or Fenians. The United States will do their duty. The assur- ances of popular American journals to this effect may be accepted the more frankly because they are not always ac- companied by complimentary language toward England, and are very generally qualified by expressions of good will toward Russia. Her majesty's iron steamship Tri- umph, armor-plated, GfiCO tons burden and carrying fourteen guns, has sailed from Portsmouth %o the Pacific; ocean to rolieye the Shah. 6040 tons and twenty-six 'guns, as flag-ship on that station. ___ Tito Ensllnu Labor LONDON, May have been no further disturbances in the strike districts iu Lancashire, and there is not likely to be more rioting, in conse- quence pi precautions taken by the mil- itary and police. 3opes of early settle- ment of differences between masters and operatives have not been abantion- ed. Spinners and carders oppose a bal- lot on the questions at issue, but the weavers at Blackburn, and some others, will vote to-morrow. At Preston the operatives are also entirely te favor of subrjittinir, as are many thousand weav- ers at Blackburn alone. It is believed that the result of their voting will have an important effect on other strikers. Meantime the strike is extending. No- tice of a ten per cent, reduction expired at Ramsbottom last night. Operatives have resolved to resist reduction, JHarlne and Snipping. CAPE HENIIY, May British steamship. Antonio, Liverpool for Bal- timore, in water ballast, is ashore, and requests immediate assistance. The Antonio went ashore at high tide. Nothing can be done for her uatU high tide again. She draws 15 feet, and is lying in 12 feet water. If the weathei- is favorBrbie, she will be hauled off in a few hours, as she is light in ballast.

OemocrnttK iioperul of Hedecmluz lion at tfae Pi-nut. May Demo- craU who ars opposod to the presidential controversy tbinl: they gained ac important point to-day in the vote on the Harrison resolution, and think it should be accepted by the country a full answer to the Repub- lican assertion that they contemplate revolution. The whole Texas delegation in the house baa been at the front to-day op- posing reduction of the army. Mr. Schleicher'g speech was remarkably able, and the other members of the del- egation have all taken an active and effective part in the sharp five minutes debate on the subject that his been run- ning during the afternoon and evening. It is not at all probable that reaction will take place but the matter will not be finally decided until the bill ia re- ported to tha house and a yea or nay- vote is taken. Pri.-a3.1 Senate. WASHINGTON, May Davis, of West Virginia, called up the resolu- tion, submitted by him a few days ago, authorizing the select committee ap- pointed to investigate the final reports of the books and accounts of the trea- sury department to continue its investi- gation, and to sit during the recess of the senate, which led to an extended discussion. In the senate, after the morning hour, regular order was laid aside, and Sen- itor Lamar proceeded to address the senate on the Texas and Pacific road. He spoke of the great importance of the work, and said the company had al- ready completed 443 miles of road, which was doing valuable service in developing the country through which it passed. The length of Ihe road to be constructed was 1400 miles, while the amoun; of bonds to be issued could not exceed and the amount of interest to be guaranteed by the gov- ernment could not exceed in round numbers per annum. The 'riends of tho bill advocated its pass- age, to complete a part of tbe great railway system connecting the Atlantic and paciac oceans. The construc- .iou of this road will new and valuable markets for produce. The advantage to the pvernment and people to be derived 'rom the road would amply compensate 'or the aid now asked. He argues that ;he government would be secured for aid in its extension by mortgage on th" entire road, by all tho earnings of the and hy all dues from tho govern- ment for transportation of mails, mili- tary supplies and troops. Ho then spoke of the objections to tho bill, and said tho single question before the senate was whether the government would spend two million dollars annu- ally for the purpose of constructing 'his road, the falue of which could not >c measured in dollars. The amount asked was not half that appropriated annually for rivers and harbors. It was lot as much as the government expended jeforo tho war for mail transportation alone to the Pacific coast, and that was at a time when we had .but >eople, and the postal demands of 'the :ountry were not what they are now. .t was not a fair statement of this case o say that the passage of this bill com- mitted the government to a great debt. Pake the appropriations for the army or the next fifty years. "Were they re- ;ardednowas debt? They brought no enumeration; but in the case of this oad the government became a creditor of the road. Referring to the Pacific states and oratories, he said the sudden acquisi- ion of our Pacific empire was a remark- ible epoch in the political history of this Country. Some of our statesmen re- tarded the event with enthusiastic eelings, aud others were dejected. He hen quoted from tbe speech of Mr. Webster on this subject, to the effect hat it was impossible for this vast em- lire to be integrated into our political ystem. Mr. Lamar next referred to he views entertained .on the subject by Wm. H. Seward, Jno. P. Hale and Jther statesmen, and said it was held hat tho United States, to maintain its told upon, that western cmoire, must Connect it with the Atlantic by a series if railroads, which no private enter- >rise could accomplish, but must be done by the federal government. He hen spoke of a bill introduced in the louse of representatives in 18.j2, by -Ir. liusk, of Texas, and said t was defeated by those who at thai .ime doubted the construction of it and he power of the government to con- tract the road. Had it not been for those constitutional objections a railroad would now be running over this very route. He argued that there were no constitutional grounds against govern- ment n-id in the construction of the road, and read a letter of R. M. T. Hunter, >f Virginia, who formerly opposed the Jill on constitutional grounds, who tates he still retained these general 'iews, but in many respects they had jecn modified by experience and the re- ults of war. He next referred to giants to other Pacific railroads, and aid to the Northern Pacific the govern- ment had given a grant of .cres; to the Union Pacific and Central Pacific it had given acres of and and its bonds to a prodigious amount; and the aid to Texas and Pa- cific was but eighteen million acres of and. People south had already in- vested a million dollars in tho road, milt 445 miles, but they were unable o build more. The legislature of every state in the south had passed esolutions favoring government aid in he construction of the road. He spoke jf the advantages of l.he soil and climate of the south, and arguec: that he cost of living there was cheap, and axation every year was growing less jurdensome. Throughout the territory were great rivers, which neither froze up in winter nor'dried up iu summer, and which could run her all he year round. The southern states nad but a small portion of their eof.on ands under cultivation. They could aise cotton enough to clothe the whole ivorld. The markets of China, Japan, and other countries, presented great advantages to the United States, and with the construction of the Texas cad we would be brought in more in- imate relations with these countries. le was satisfied that the construction jf the Texas and Pacific road would be he most efficient means for he southern commeTce and agriculture. He spoke of the labor roubles in the country ar.d said what we needed was the inauguration of new nterprises to employ labor. In conc'u- ion he appealed to the senators from the New England states especially to upport the measure as a work of na- ional importance in the interest of the whole American people. Mr. Johnson, of Virginia, gave notice hat he would address the senate on hij bill, but was not prepared to do so o-day. The District of Columbia bill was discussed to executive session. T11. ifay 22.-Mr. Ham- on, of Ilbnois, offered as a question of irivilege a resolution extending the not the of the throi.-i to annul the cli.rrifir.a of 'jiiti'.ion -i- in the CMKrcss.

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
