Washington, September 18. —
Hon. Walter EvariB, commissioner
of internal revenue, left Washington
this evening for a short trip to Ken-
tucky. His name was to-day added
to the list of those as likely to suc-
ceed Secretary Folger.
The health of Mrs. Evans is great
Information was received here
yesterday, that Morton, minister to
France, who intended to have Bailee
for New York Tuesday, this week
has concluded todeltr his departure
two weeks. This seems to effectu-
ally quiet the report that lie was
coming home to assume the duties
of secretary of the treasury* as that
office will have to be filled within
aeven days., It is snid by Morton's
friends that he obtained leave
absense to come to this country be
fore the death of Secretary Folger,
and his intention had no connec-
tion with the vacancy in the cabinet.
Morton's object in coming home
just at this time is to attend to some
private business in New York. It is
stated positively to day that General
Sharpe would not accept the treas-
ury port folio.

morning. Last night a watch was
kept for any sparks that mightcome
to the town. At one time it seemed
that the bridge and some of the
buildings must go, but they were
saved. This afternoon the grass on
the meadows was on fire. The lire
department was called out to check
ihe flames. Their efforts were fu-
tile, and the only bopeojf saving tl»
town lies in rain. The fire, it is
believed, was caused by sparks from

pelled to tight the flames to save
their houses. The only hope is in
a change of the wind, or rain.

heroically, and finally succeeded in
