Grant s Condition.
New York, March 29. The usnal weekly
consultation" on General Grant's condition
was held to-day. Doctors Barker, Sands,
Shrady and Douglas were present. The
irritation of the nose, which had produced
train of symptoms which induced the
family to send for physicians last night, has
been relieved, so that the General had a
sleep of four hours.
To-night General Grant became anxiouf
to see the doctors, and they arrived at the
house after 11. They found the patient's
throat much better than at the consultation,
although there was still slight concresiion.
The doctors dressed it, gave the General
another anodyne and put him to be I. They
remained with the General all niaht and Dr.
hrady will stay to-morrow night. Physi
cians are in the house to allay the General's
own nervousness and calm the anxiety of
While he was dozing there had been an
accumulation of phlegm in the rear of the
nasal passage, and he was awakened by a
sense of suffocation and a difficulty in
breathing. The patient became apprehen
sive at this sudden development of new
symptoms that were' attended with a pros-
oect of serious results, a d wanted an ex
planation of the trouble. He consequently
desired the presence of his physicians and
they were sent for.
The general's family remained up all
night long, and it was a night of suspense
to them. They were much relieved, how
ever, when the spasmodic attack hail been
subdued, and they were assured there was
no occasion to fear any return of the bad
New York Fire.

got under control.
Rockbridge, 111., March 27. The grow
ing wheat in this section presents a sorry
appearance. The most sanguine farmers
predict only half a crop along the creek bot
toms; where snow and ice gave continued
protection the plant is vigorous and the
fields present a green appearance. The
crop on the uplands has suffered severely,
and the only indications ol life in the wheat
fields are in the depressions and along the
fences where the drifted snow gave protec
tion, Corn land seeded early in the fall
presents the most encouraging, prospect.
Several farmers have decided to plow up
their wheat and plant corn.

Long before the hour of convening of the

packed by crowds of excited men. It soon
became evident that trouble was brewing
for the government. A strong force of mil
itary was on hand to prevent trouble and
preserve order in .the chambers. Notwith
standing this precaution the galleries were
crowded with people who showed irritation
over the French defeat at Langson, by
keeping up a noisy discussion and hurling
denunciatory epithets at members of the
cabinet and their supporters as they entered
When Jules Ferry, the premier, arose to
announce the decision of the cabinet council
this morning he was loudly hissed by the
galleries. He had barely finished the dec
laration when a number of deputies of the
right spran;to their feet, yelling "Down
with the wratch!" while above the din could
be heard the voice of Clemcnceau, as be
f urly screamed, "Traitors!" It was some
time before order was restored, and had it
not been for the presence of troops there i3
hardly a doubt that violence would have
During the scene in the chamber the
crowd outside was becoming a howling mob,

The Ministry Resigns.
Paris, March 30. At the opening of the
session in the chamber of deputies this
afternoon Minister Ferry presented the
government's request for a credit of $40,
000,000 on account of military operations in

report upon the credit, and he demanded

tion of the entire' ministry, and President

Clemenceau s Speech.
Paris, March 31. In his speech in the
chambers yesterday, Clemenceau said the

Russian Cruisers Coming.
San Francisco, March 30. Count
Olarovsky, Russian consul at this city,
states that two Russian cruisers have left
the Mediterranean for this port. Their ob
ject in coming to this coast is to do as much
damage to the English merchant marine and
the British posessions, in case war between
the two countries is declared.
Decission Affecting the CUinese Act.
San Francisco, March 30. Judge Saw
yer, of the U. S. circuit court, decided that
a Chinese merchant resident of this country
could depart from it and enter it again,
without being subjected to the conditions
imposed in section six of the Chinese
amended restriction act.
Walla Walla, March 30. The first
shipment of cattle ever made from this
coast to Chicago left here this morning via
the O. R. & N., the Short Line and the
Rock Island roads, Messrs. Dooley & Kirk
man and Chris Ennis being the sliipers.
Everything was handled admirably. All
the lines deserve credit for their liberal pol
icy in making a rate that would move stock.
Twenty cars left, and the train will run
twenty miles an hour. This is the fore
runner of other shipments.
Outrage on American Citizens.
Panama, (via Galveston), March - 30.
Star and Herald bulletins published to-day,
say the steamer Colon was seized to-day at
Aspinwall by revolutionists, who demanded
the delivery of shipments of arms on board
for the revolution. The agent refused to
deliver. Connor, local superintendent of
the Pacific Mail company, was first arrested
and later the captaiu and purser of the
steamer were placed under arrest ou board.
Subsequently Captain Dowell of the Pa
cific Mail company, Mr. Wright, United
States consul, and the lieutenant of the
American man-of-war Galena were arrested
and inarched off to the cuartel. They were
released at 6 o'clock, on condition that the
arms should be delivered, and delivery is
now going on. American and English war
ships did nothing to protect foreign inter
ests, because the revolutionary chief de
clared he would resist their interference by
force. Americans are indignant at the in
sults to their flag and outrage to their per
sons and property. Troops go from here
to-night to attack the revolutionists, who,
however, are in strong force, and with the
arms from the Colon will probably be able
to control events in their own way and to
their own interests.
