England and the tTnlted States.
The extraordinary attentions paid
to ex President Grant by the court and
the nobility of England have a signifi
cance immeasurably beyond any claims
to personal consideration that might be
advanced in behalf of the recipient.
The presence of Gen. Grant in England
is accidental, or, rather, merely inci
dental to a private visit to Europe,
which he had contemplated making on
bin retirement from the presidency.
But the public honors extended to him
have been evidently conceived and
arranged with a deliberate puipose to
make his visit the occasion for a signal
manifestation of a national sentiment
as ripe as it is cordial. The nature of
the sentiment and the character of the
reception are indicated in a general
way by the words of Dean Stanley:
"England welcomes him as a
sign and pledge that the two
nations of the Anglo Saxon race
are still one in heart and spirit,"
But these general phrases can only
suggest the complex motives at work
ia the profuse tribute accorded to the
ex-President as a symbolical and repre-
sentative personage. The fullness of
the meaning of this tribute can be best
understood by considering the situation
of England with respect to the conti
nental powers of Europe, aud the
tendencies, the interests and the more
and more distinctly settled policyjwhich
have combined to render Eugland a
receding factor and influence in Euro-
pean politics. We can not tell what
great exigencies and trials the. future
may have in store for the country of
Pitt, of Nelson, and of Wellington;
but, whatever may impend, it is safe to
assume that England will never again
head a great European combination and
play the part in it of the arbiter of royal
dynasties and national destinies. Her
statesmanship and the intelligence and
patriotic aspirations of her people nat-
urally turn to the large and powerful
English-speaking populations across the
Atlantic and the Pacific, with eagerness
to count up and enlist among kin-
dred in race, in tongue and in
institutions, the elements of a moral
alliance which, in a supreme emergen-
cy, might ripen into something more
substantial. This feeling, cautiously
suggested in English diplomacy, has
more frequently and more conspicuous-
ly cropped out in English literature. It
colors the title page and preface of a
work produced a few years ago by Sir
Charles Dilke. It is called "Greater
Britain, a Record of Travel in English-
speaking countries during 18GC Bnd
1867." In the preface the author says:
In 1866 and 1867 I followed England round
the world; everywhere I was in English-
speaking or in English-governed lands. If I
remarked that climate, soil, manners of life,
that mixturej with other peoples had modi-
fied the blood. I saw, too, that in essentials
the race was always one. The idea which in
all the length of my travels has been at once
my follow and my guide—a key wherewith to
unlock the hidden things of strange new lands
—is a conception, however imperfect, of the
grandeur ef our race already girdling the earth
which it is destined, perhaps, eventually to
overspread. In America the peoples of the
world are being fused together, but they are
run into an English mould; Alfred's laws and
Chaucer's tongne are theirs whether they
would or no. There are men who say that
Britain in her age will claim the glory oi
having planted'greater Englands across the
seas. They fail to perceive that she has done
more than found plantations of her own-
that she has infused her institutions upon
the off shoots of Germany,! of Ireland, of
Scandinavia, and of Spain. Through Amer-
ica England is speaking to the world.
It is to be regretted that our Ameri-
can "Union, in the cast and working of
its political system, has not developed
more of the characteristics of an Eng-
lish plantation. The genius of the
English common law is infused into
our jurisprudence, and the spirit of
Magna Charta into our constitutional
abstractions. But the fathers who or-
ganized the government of the Union
after the war of independence were in
no mood for copying the framework of
the English government. They seemed
anxious, in fact, to make the widest de-
parture from that model, and the re-
sult has been that many of our Fed-
eral administrations have more re-
sembled the personal arbitrariness of
the reign of Henry VIII or Charles I
than the impersonal and non-partisan
reign of Queen Victoria, under whom
responsible government has been con-
summated in the virtual establishment
of the principle that the crown is the
House of Commons. Let us hope that
the unity of heart and spirit invoked
by Dean Stanley will tell hereafter in
favor of responsible government in this
country so decisively that no adminis-
tration will dare to attempt to enforce
either a personal or a partisan policy
against the manifest will of the people.

Brenham, June 4, 1877.
The surveying party of the G., C.
and S. F. It. W., under command of
Col. B. M. Temple, Engineer, reached
here from Beltou last night The first
line run passes near Caldwell, in Burle-
son county, and through Cameron, Mi-
lam county. En route from here to
Belton the new line leaves both towns
several miles to the east. The new
line is shorter, and passes through
Rockdale, Milam county, crossing the
International Railroad at that point,
and running in a southerly direction
and striking the first surveyed line at a
point four miles from the "i egua creek,
and nineteen and one-half miles from
Brenham. A good point to cross the
Yegua has been found, and assistant
engineers inform me that the road can
be built cheaply on the route surveyed.
The party here are awaiting further or-

Funeral ol' motley, the Historian.
London, June 3.—The Observer states
that John Lathrop Motley will be
buried at Keusal Green at 11 o'clock to-
morrow morning. Dean Stanley
preached the funeral sermon at West-
minster Abbey to day.
The remains of the late John Lathrop
Motley were interred in a grave beside
that of his wife, who was buried in
Kensal Green cemetery in 1875. Dean
Stanley read the burial services. The
attendance at the obsequies included
Mr. nnd Mrs. Algernon Sheridan and

An Exploit of Train Robbers In
St. Louis, June 4.—The track of the
St. Louis and San Francisco road, 150
miles west of St. Louis, was tampered
with, and the engine and baggage car
of an express train went down a forty-
foot embankment, killing three persons.
Pistol shots were fired at the train, the
flashes revealing men at the side of the
track. Two balls passed through the
cars ; one through the conductor s hat.
The night was dark and the rainy, and
the train was running only ten miles
an hour; otherwise the robbers, intend-
ing to throw the whole train down the
embankment, certainly would have sue
ceeded. No clue.
The Lons Lost Steamer George F.
Wright—A Survivor Found.
San Francisco, June 4.—An Indian,
representing himself as sole survivor of
the steamer George F. Wright, lost sev-
eral years ago on north Pacific coast
with troops aboard, reports that her
boiler exploded and the steamer began
sinking, when Capt. Sly, with four offi-
cers and a passenger, 'got into a boat
and told him to get in. The rest were
trying to escape by another boat or
were asleep. Both crews reached the
shore, where all but the Indian were
killed and robbed and he was threaten-
ed with death if he informed.
The meeting of business men yester
day, for devising means for continuing
the Narrow Gauge road beyond the
Brazos, determined upon making a can-
vass of the city for subscriptions, and
placed the matter in the hands of a
committee consisting of Messrs. George
Sealy, Leon Blum, J. S. Wallis and
Hon. M. Kopperl, all of whom are
active and energetic, largely interested
in promoting every enterprise that
promises to be of benefit to the city,
and who will, doubtless, do all in their
power to accomplish the purpose in
view. The project is one of much im-
portance to the city, and should not be
permitted to languish for want of a
few thousand dollars.
Congressman Gibson, in a recent
interview with the Secretary of State,
advocated his proposal that the Presi-
dent shall appoint three commissioners
to confer with representatives from
Central America, Mexico and Brazil, in
regard to arrangements for more ex-
tended commercial relations. The sug-
gestions were well received and the
administration, it is thought, will favor
the passags of Mr. Gibson's resolutions.

and half a million dollars worth of
property was destroyed. Large num-
ber wounded, several of whom will un-
doubtedly die. The bodies of four killed
were burned. At least 35 are still
Later information says four more
bodies have been found. Two of the

total destruction of the town.
Cairo, June 4—Private telegrams
relate that a tornado struck Mount
Irmel, Illinois, about 4 p. m., causing
great loss of life and property. Twelve
are known to be killed, thirty to fifty
wounded and about twenty missing.
Among the buildings destroyed are
Presbyterian and Methodist churches,
two school-houses, court-houses, several
stores and residences.
London, June 4.—Reuter's telegram
from Athens says at a meeting of 8000
persona last night resolutions were
adopted declaring necessisy for form-
ing a ministry of leaders of the re
■pective parties so that dis-
sensions in chambers may be
avoided and that the government carry
forward military preparations prompt-
ly and energetically. A deputation
nominated by the meeting waited upon
party leaders, urged united action, and
requested in each case that a distinct
reply be made public.
Learaoti,» June On the Danube
the Russians have at last occupied the
chief positions, and their lines extend
from Galatz to Kalafat, but the for-
midable river bars their way. Until
the stream returns to its normal sum-
mer level, it will be perilous, if not
absolutely impossible, to take the army
across. It is now liardly possible that
the Russians can execute the great
military operations for the next three
weeks. They may come to close quar-
ters with the Turkish armies about the
beginning of July, so that the cam-
paign will probably be prosecuted
under the greatest heats of summer.
The region of the lower Danube is
terribly unhealthy for strangers. So, it
may be presumed, the Russians will en-
deavor to traverse with all celerity the
more unhealthy districts. Those troops
will fare worst which have to sit down
before a fortress on guard, as an army
in movement will generally keep health
better than a garrison or investing
forces. The character and duration of
the struggle in Bulgaria are the subject
of much speculation, particularly in
Germany and Austria, where, every offi-
cer seems to have made his own partic-
ular study of the campaign. The gen-
eral tenor off these criticisms is averse
to the Turksf not from any doyib} that
they will mskg a good fight and even
inflict serious repulses on their enemy,
but from the pjesupposition that the su-
jjeriority.jn numbers; .efficiency ofr or-
ganization and strategical ability are on
the side of the Russians. v
There are 340,000 Russians in posi-
tion on the Danube, without counting
the Roumanians or the reserves that
are being brought forward, who
amount to 60,000 men. There are 80,-
000 men east of Ibrail and 30,000 with
considerable reserves at Belgrade,
which is the point of support for this
part of the line. The strength and po-
sition of the works atR eniand Ibrail in-
dicate that they are defensive and not
offensive, the precautions taken being
directed against an attack by the Turk-
ish fleet, and to prevent the passage of
the river by the Turks at Ibrail. There
are three batteries, one west of the
town, sweeping the Danube with four
13 pounders and two guns of larger
caliber up to the poinf formed by the
Matchin channel, and two batteries
east of the town, raking the Matchin
channel, one of which is armed with
four guns of position and four howit-
zers, and the other with eight pieces of
still larger caliber and two mortars, and
from which projectiles are said to have
reached Matchin.
There is a fourth battery of eight
guns on the island opposite Matchin,
from Ibrail. Up to the lines of Bucha-
rest and Oltenitza and Bucharest and
Giurgevo there are no troops, except
a number requisite to guard against a
possible surprise, but between Bucha-
rest and Giurgevo the concentration
is on a larger scale, the forces in
these camps each containing 30,000
men, to which must be added another
10,000 at Giurgevo. Thus, there are
100,000 men concentrated on the Bucha-
rest and Giurgevo line along the rail-
way, who may be directed either against
the line of Luttschuk and Turtuker or
gutsghuk and Listova on the si>ot. It
believed me latter will be ch03en and
that the demonstration at Oltenitza is
merely a feint.
The second concentration is on both
sides of the river Aluta; east of the
river, 60,000 men in two camps both on
the high road to Turna Guerrli. West
of the Aluta are four camps, repre-
senting about 80,000 men. This may
be regarded as the center of the line.
Further west, on the line of Kalafat
and Turmu, last accounts stated the
number of Russians to be over 40,000.
The Turkish army
on the asiatic side
appears to have been deplorably neg
lected. The troops are worse disci-
plined, worse equipped and provided
than those on the Danube, but the na-
ture of the warfare in Asia to some de
gree makes deficiencies of the armies
less vital. The campaign will be one
in which strategy will be of less and
hard fighting of more importance.
Even irregular troops may be able to do
service in some positions, which it is
in the power of Mouhktar Pasha to de-
The Russian right wing has advanced
from Ardahan via Arut to Pennek, fif-
teen miles north of Bardez. Of the
center we have no reliable information,
but it has been reported that they have
taken both Delemuaa and Getzchevan.
According to another account, these
places are being attacked by detach-
ments, while the main force is follow-
ing the northern road over the Soghanlu
Range. At all events, the right and
center are well down toward positions
from which attack could be made on
Mouhktar Pasha, but the left wing has
not yet advanced far enough to partici-
pate in the combined movement. This
delay is to a great extent in conse-
quence of difficulties of the country
through which the left wing is march-
ing. All supplies have to be drawn
from Ewvan, from which place the
only easy road leads through the Per-
sian territory, the other routes being
mountain passes.
If the battle, which is to decide the
fate of Erzeroum, is not fought until
the Ewvan column has forced the Turk-
ish position at Toprak Kaleh and is in
supporting distance of the other col-
umns, progress is likely to be, as here-
tofore, very slow. It is not impossible,
however, that the right and center, with
the aid of a force from Batoum, operat-
ing on the Chamk river, may attack
Mouhktar Pasha from the direction of
Olti and Coghanlu, provided Mouhk-
tar waits to be attacked. The la'est
news of him via Constantinople repre-
sents that he was falling back from the
Bardes and Erzeroum position.
It is to be regarded, however, that
news from Constantinople, whether
favorable or unfavorable to the Turks,
is peculiarly untrustworthy. Thus we
had last week the announcements that
the Russians had occupied Van and
Olti, both of which were false and
probably the result of a panic just as
the reiterated story of the recapture of
Ardahan was probably the result of
blundering design on the part of the
government to appease the populace of
Constantinople. On the other hand
the news made public by the Russian
government is generally of no im
portance whatever as it is several days
behind time.

some inaccuracy. It seems too much
to suppose the Turks left the Salina
mouth unguarded. It is different with
the Rilia branch, the sea along coast
there being very shallow. Some of the
flat bottomed Russian monitors, which
are supposed to lie in readiness at Ni-

steamer City of San Francisco, Moses

Sutton, of New York, passengers, ar-
rived by train to-day from San Diego.
The evening papers publish an inter-
view giving further particulars of the
disaster. The Captain and Purser are
unwilling to make statements until the
former has submitted his report to the
agent of the company.
TI13 officers avoid giving theories
concerning the rock on which the ship
struck. The passengers say deep water
is all around it. The officers say they
knew nothing before the shock. In a
few minutes after striking boats were
cleared away without confusion, and
the passengers seated in them ready for
lowering. A full head of steam was
put on. The ship grounded about four
miles from shore. The boats were in-
stantly lowered and pulled for the
On landing, out of nine boats only
one escaped upsetting. The surf was
combing 12 or 13 feet high, and when
it struck the boats it came with such
force that the occupants were hurled 10
or 15 feet; babies were thrown from the
anus or tneir motners; even garments
and jewelry were wrenched from them
by the waves. WBen the first boat
touched shore those in it threw out
ropes amd ranged themselves in line to
help the next comers, and this system
of rendering assistance was followed
until every soul was safe on land.
One baby was rescued just before life
was extinct, and it took some time to
restore vitality. One of the ladies was
caught under a boat and held there for
some time; but as the next swell of the
sea raised the craft, she managed to es-
cape. There was no time for delicate
handling. The men, knowing that the
safety of lives depended upon prompt
and vigorous action, handled the chil-
dren as if they were so many bags of
sand. In attempting to launch a boat
to return to the wreck, an assistant en-
gineer had a leg broken.
Captain Waddell was the last to leave
the ship, at 5 o'clock in the evening.
Only about fifteen feet of the vessel re-
mained above water, the waves wash-
ing over her and knocking her to pieces.
He, with thirty-five others, came ashore
on a life raft, which went over the surf
without capsizing. Captain Waddell
reports that the cargo of the Acapulco
from New York, May 1st, was not on
the City of San Francisco, except one
package of fast freight. A court of
inquiry to take testimony on the loss of
the steamer will be held next week.

Pasha himself is among the missing.
The Circassians fought desperately, and
no quarter was given.
London, June 4.—The Daily Tele-
graph's story of the destruction of
Moussa Pasha's Circassians is a gross
exaggeration.' Russian offisial accounts
say the Circassians were dispersed, los-
ing 83 killed.
murphy's Rousing Revival In Phil-
adelphia — JLiquor Dealers Con-
Philadelphia, June 3. — Francis
Murphy addressed about 300 liquor
dealets and their families this evening
at the tabernacle on Broad street. The
hall was filled to its utmost capacity.
Addresses were made by Murphy and
Georga H. Stuart. A number of people
signed the pledge at the conclusion of
the meeting, the first to do so being a
liquor dealer.
There were seventeen temperance
meetings held in this city yesterday.
Over 50,000 peopls have signed the
pledge since the commencement of his
labors here and it is estimated that a
million of people have signed the Mur-
phy pledge since that gentleman began
his work.

to the Derrick gives account of an oil

large oil tank was struck by lightning,

New Tom, June 4.—The Custom-

with members of the Chamber of Com-
merce to-day. Among the more im-
portant suggestions was the abolition
of the Navy Office, upon the Utopian
hypothesis that honest subordinates
would be a sufficient check on the col-
lector. Mr. Eaton read a lengthy doc-
ument, expressing the views of mem-
bers of the Chamber of Commerce and
merchants on remedies required.
Philadelphia, June 4.—There was

ef .one of tb6 eleven persons ebarged
with conspiracy. This was AbserWat-
kinson, a man over sixty years old, who
was acquitted. The lodge then, dis-
charged the Jury* and the ten renam-
ing prisoners were released upon giving
bonds for their appearance at the next
term of court.
The counsel think it unlikely that
these cases will ever again be tried. It
is now known that the jury stood six to
six on the question of a general acquit-
tal, six whites being for and the six
blacks against. The black jurymen,
however, were willing to agree upon a
verdict convicting two of the accused
and acquitting all the rest, but to this
the six whites would not consent.
Charleston, June 4.—Chief Justice

The Corpus Christi and the Pope's
Golden Anniversary.
Washington, June 4.—Dispatches
from all quarters report devotional ex-
ercises in celebration of the Corpus
Christi and the Pope's golden anniver-
sary. At St. Louis seventy or eighty
societies, gaily dressed in handsome
uniforms and,regalia, with forty bands,
were in the line of procession. At
frequent intervals in the columns were
large, finely embellished wagons, filled
with elegantly dressed little girls and
boys; also numerous carriages, filled
with priests and officials of various
grades. It is estimated 20,000 persons
were in line, including children. The
streets along the line of march Were
densely thronged with spectators, and
many houses handsomely decorated
with American flags, the Pope's colors,

A Extra Demonstration mt
" Montreal.
. ^Iontoeal, June 4.—The largest pro-
cession ever seen in Montreal occurred
yesterday to commemorate Corpus
Christi,. and the festival of fiftieth an-
niversary of the Pope and the arrival of
the delegates apostolic. Th,e line
of march was decorated with banners,
evergreens, young trees and arches.
Carpets were laid between the
street car track on St. Lawrence and
Main streets^ and sawdust sprin-
kled on the sides for worshipers
of the Host to kneel upon. Eighteen
• hqusand people were in the proces-
sion. The line of march was crowded
with spectators. Eleven bands accom-
panied the procession, and all passed
under fifteen arches. The Cathedral
towers, the palace and many public
buildings, and hundreds of residences,
were illuminated last evening. To day
the Delegate holds a levee, and there
will be a grand torchlight procession
this evening.
hours after he readmit; and among those,
favored with its penisal 'were three re- "
putable correspondents.
It appears that the newly appointed
Consul to Funchal, gazetted as James
E. Anderson, of Ohio, and who^declined
the office because he could do better at
home, was supervisor of elections in
East Feliciana parish, Louisiana, during
the late presidential election. It is in-
timated that he has some ugly memo-
randa, more ugly than the Wharton-
Maddox-Wells-West papers.
Hayes has pardoned Ernestine Bas-
tenday, recently convicted in the U. S.
Court of passing counterfeit half dol-
Evarts has returned. Key arrives
to-morrow morning. Colonel White
has resigned the Collectorship of the
port of Richmond, Va.
The Butler-McVeigh correspondence
has given the Louisiana Marshalship a
scandalous interest. The Star says:
" Jack Wharton, an applicant for the
Louisiana Marshalship, is in the city.
The President is willing to give Whar-
ton the place when Pitkin, the present
incumbent, resigns and has requested
the latter's resignation. Pitkin, how-
ever, refuses to resign and says if his
office is wanted for somebody else the
President must remove him."
It is held that custom-house investi-
gations and directions by the Execu-
tive to collectors suggested by the com-
missioners, who have no legal exist-
ence, are more or less an impertinent
interference with the legal rights and

may nominate or suspend collectors,
but the details of the operation are
clearly defined by acts of Congress,
and are properly, it iB claimed, beyond
presidential interference.
Joseph Franks, Deputy U. 8. Mar-
shal from Macon county, N. C., who
was arrested in this city on Sunday
night on a charge of defrauding the
United States government, had a hear-
ing to-day and was committed to jail in
default of $5000 bail. He says he
wishes his trial in Washington, as he
was arrested on charges made by Mar-
shall R. M. Douglass because he would
not comply with his demand in making
false vouchers. Marshal Douglass, Mr.
Franks asserts, was to have quarter of
all amounts raised in that way. Doug-
lass is the son-in-law of United States
District Judge Dick, before whom he
would have to be tried. He says that
he will make a clean breast of every-
thing at the proper time.
Detective Hester, Department of
Justice, represents the discovery of
extensive frauds in the office of Mar-
shal Douglass, of North Carolina. Be-
fore leaving North Carolina Hester
arrested the chief clerk and chief ac-
countant of the Marshal's office. It is
stated frauds have been going on sever-
al years.
Deputy Franks, arrested here last
night, claims that he came here to ex-
pose frauds. Two alleged property
holders from North Carolina offered to
bail Franks, but the commissioner re-
fused to receive their bonds.

The State Department has official in-
formation that the principality of Rou-
mania (Turkish) has made a treaty with
Russia and placed itself under Russian
protection. The State Department has
also advices through the Turkish Min-
ister that the Ottoman Empire, not-
withstanding the revolt of Roumania,
will treat Roumanians and Roumanian
shipping within its control the same as
loyal subjects.
Paris, June 4.—Twenty one admin-
istrative appointments and six dismis-
sals are gazetted. An article in the
semi-official Moniteur is interpreted - as
affirming the government's intention to
dissolve the Chamber. A violent arti-
cle in Le Pays, openly recommending
a coup d'etat under certain circum-
stances, causes much comment.
Paris, June 4.—Excitement exists
in consequence of the arrest of M.
Duvordier, President of the Municipal
Council. It is quite legal, but most
unusual, to arrest people for offenses
by writing or speech. Offenders in
this way are generally left at liberty
till trial, even without bail. In this
case bail was refused. M. Duvordier
denies the charges against him. The
impression produced is bad, as the
prisoner is popular with the lower
classes. He is a man of education and
independent means, and he is charged
with insulting Marshal MacMahen and
inciting civil war and assassination.
Paris, June 4.—A conspicuous note
in the Moniteur announces that on the
16th the government will meet an in-
terpellation on President MacMahon's
message, and after a vote will call on
the House to discuss the budget. If
the House refuses the government will
apply to the Senate for permission to
dissolve the Chamber.
8nrrender of the Peruvian Rebel
Ship Huasear.
London, June 4.—The following dis-
patch has been received at the Admir-
alty from the commander-in-chief of the
Pacific States:
Iquique, June 1.—The Peruvian rebel
turret-ship Huasear committed pirati-
cal acts against British subjects, and
Her Majesty's ships Shah and Amethyst
engaged her eff Tilo on the 29th of
May. She escaped after dark, but was
so damaged as to surrender to the Pe-
ruvian squadron. There were no Brit-
ish casualties.
Baltimore — Observances in the
Catholic Churches.
Baltimore, June 3.—The fiftieth
anniversary of the Episcopal consecra-
tion of the Pope was observed with im-
pressive ceremonies and solemnity in
all the Catholic churches of this city
and throughout the arch-diocese to day.
At the hourly masses, commencing at
5 a. m. and continuing until 12 o'clock,
the churches were crowded, and holy
communion was administered to an
unprecedented number.

from different parts of the State. There

and fiftv guns were fired. Gen. Alpheus
Baker delivered an oration on the life

rain has fallen for several weeks and

An Unfavorable Crop Prospect for
the State.
Charleston, S. C., June 4.—The
Neurs and Courier prints the following
as the result of extended inquiry con-
cerning crop prospects in this State:
In eastern counties, the best cotton dis-
trict in the State, the stands are bad,
and what cotton is up is looking bad
and shows no improvement in growth.
In the upper counties cotton is simi-
larly affected and wants rain. In the
middle counties a week ago there was
no stand of cotton on the river lands,
and little cotton was up on the
uplands. The stand is about same as
in sections previously mentioned. The
lower counties make no better reports
Dryness of weather has been favorable
for work and has kept the crtton crop
clean of grass. With everything fa-
vorable from this time out and with a
late frost, a fair crop of cotton may be
made, but under no circumstances can
a full crop be expected.
