It has been suggested to Sherman that As soon As he can float the four per cent Bonds he ought to Stop the Alo the four and a half. Sherman has grown nervous Over this subject because to atop the sales even if the four per cents do appreciate to Par might demoralize the Market and defeat the very object he won have in View that is to fund the pud tie debt at the lowest possible rate interest. Whatever he Doea in this direction must be accomplished before the 20th june because the Syndicate want All the per cent Bonds that remain. This is regarded Here As a glorious commentary the credit the United states. Special dispatch to the enquirer. Washington d. C., april 26,1877. What it Means. The presence the six russian men War in american Waters at this time is now regarded to have More significance than the Mere escort Tho two russian Dukes Alexis and Constantine. It is believed that the Czar when he ordered the Fleet to this country had in his minds Eye that War Between his Empire and Turkey was inevitable and that it would to a Wiso stroke policy to have cruising in the Atlantic six Fleet ships his Navy in Case England should in any contingency become involved in the complication. In that event it is believed that Russia would commence a system predatory acts the Commerce England in the Waters the Atlantic. 9uch a stroke would compel England to keep her North Atlantic Fleet in a condition to protect its commercial Marine and at the same time look after the movements the russian Man War. It would also Lead undoubtedly to the passage k Freo shipping Law in the United states the repeal the present navigation Law in order to give the Commerce England the Protection which would be accorded it by flying the american colors. Naval officers say that the russian Shipe now in the Waters the Atlantic Are the fastest the czars naval establishment and by reason their thorough sailing capacity As to Speed could do incalculable damage and elude the vigilance a whole Fleet vessels Leas Speed though More formidable in armament. General Thorman think that the Turko russian War will eventually culminate in the greatest outbreak which has occurred for centuries past that Austria will soon to in it and that before constantinople to taken England will probably interfere am thus become involved. says that a Large army russians will Cross the Danube somewhere Between Rustchak and Varna and that both these cities with Sylestria will be the scenes great fighting. Tho russians will push into Moldavia and Down to Galatz if they can get there. At that terrific Battle will be fought but in his opinion the great Field Battle the Campaign will be fought at Seh Mia Tho immense fortified Camp the turks. thinks the russians Are moving with an army about three Hundred thousand men in that direction. is opinion that if the russians Are paying Gold Abr what they use in the moldavian and Wal Lachle a provinces the banners will continue to go and raise their crops but if they take by Force and devastate Tho country then the Farmers business in that great producing county will entirely suspend. To says Tho turks will make a More depend led resistance than they have Ever made before and that their Navy now in the Black sea is far Superior to the russian and that it would not Surprise him if Tho turks perpetrated a bold flank movement and captured Odessa in the Black sea the chief depot supplies ac., for the marching armies the Czar. believes that before the War is Over the map the continent and Eastern Europe will be very much changed. General Sherman says All officers the american army who get leave absence to go across the sea must do so at half pay and that it is decided that they can not to Tho staff any general either Side and that they can not become engaged either Side in any manner. Possibilities the new Senate. The Assurance that the Republican majority in the Senate will be whittled Down to four As soon As the Louisiana and South Carolina senators Are sworn in and the knowledge that there Are More than four anti iia resites among the Republican senators has started into renewed activity a plot which has Long been hatching to break up the Anthony ring which for Long years has had a death grip Senate patronage. It is rather More than probable that sergeant at arms French and clerk Gorham will both be ousted. There Are four Republican senators who have openly avowed their personal animosity to French and they hold the balance Power and will doubtless Force the republicans to nominate some other Man. Sex congressman Jerry Rusk is said to have a Good show for the place. The possibility the democrats effecting a reorganization the Senate committees with the help the carpet baggers to also hinted Here and is among the possibilities. It is not probable however tor in the recent reorganization the Senate committees the Republican leaders foresaw the danger and cleverly guarded against it by giving each the four carpet bag senators holding Over better chairmanships than the democrats could afford to give them. Thus Dorsey is at the head the committee the District Columbia Spencer military affairs patters education and labor and Conover enrolled Bills. Special Dimitch to the enquirer. Washington d.

There i considerable Moonshine in the published statements that Secretary Sherman intends to Stop the Sale the per cent Bonds the new loan As soon they Apple elate in value so As to bring the 4 per cents to Par.

This synd Ca was to take 300,000,000 44 per cent Bonds at Par less the one Quarter 1 per cent commission by Tho 30th june 1877. There was a proviso in the contract that at any time after the 4th March the Secretary could terminate it by giving ten Days notice. This provision was made so As not to hamper any new administration that might follow Grant. The Syndicate has been very Active and successful in its operations. They Hare sold All the Bonds that Calls have been made to offset amounting to 9140,000,000 and the indications Are judging from the regular tone the Market that they will sell 930,000,000 a month More Between now and the 30th june. Our Bonds meantime have appreciated in value and Tho general supposition to that if the rothschilds and special dispatch to the enquirer. Washington. April 29,1876 the ghost a crime.

However that he would have Given him the place but be apprehended that if he sent his name to Tho Senate he would be rejected because the democrats would not vote for his confirmation. did no to Tell Anderson in addition however that the principal reason Why he did not appoint him was that it would give Rise to a debate in the executive session the Senate which would probably revive the Rascal ties the Louisiana returning Board and compel a number the statesmen who visited new Orleans to see fair count to Rise and explain. It is understood that Carl Schurz advised Hayes that it was much better to offend Anderson by not appointing him than allow Tho returning Board in any manner it saw fit to ventilate its own Rascal ties. Such ventilation should not come up in the Senate As it most assuredly would pending the confirmation if the nomination was made. King who will receive the appointment is an sex judge the supreme court under the Kellogg dynasty. Special dispatch to the enquirer. Washington april 30, 1877. The famous Megar Raban fraud is again before Tho Interior department. For eight years it has been pending and As yet no Secretary the Interior except Cox Ohio has had Tho nerve to say whether Mcgarrahan s claim was fraudulent not. The Stock has been watered by Mcgarrahan to untold millions and sex sen tors and sex congressmen hold it by Tho 100,000. The new Idria company now demand a hearing from Schurz while Mcgarrahan wants the hearing delayed so that the new con Gressmen May to placed Tho ground floor with additional Stock. Schurz wants to end Tho litigation and make a decision but is restrained by Montgomery Blair who is Mcgarrahan a attorney Aud to whom the Teuton is under some obligations for past favors. The claim involves minions and is an evidence How slow the government can adjudicate a claim that has sugar in it for its officials. The carpet Bagger regard the appointment judge King to the collector shop at new Orleans As a movement directly in Tho interest Tho natives the South As distinguished from themselves. King was recommended by Anderson late the returning Board whose connection with that notorious institution made it impolitic if not inappropriate that he should be appointed to office. Anderson is not a native but is not a carpet Bagger and hav ing been an old line whig has become imbued with Tho spirit conciliation and dreams the resurrection the whig party among the natives Louisiana the carpet Biggers say the suggestion Kings name was his first step in this direction and that even Sherman has recently said when speaking Louisiana laces that he had Como to the conclusion that the Republican party had carried too heavy a Load in Louisiana and must now unload but did not think it was his business to say who must to thrown overboard.
