Washington, M.rcli 31. The ap
pointment of Minister Sargent to St
Petersburg, and his subsequent dec
lination and final resignation of the
German mission, on the ground of ill
health, has been the leading topic iu
diplomatic circles this week. Be
yond doubt the btate department, in
transferring Sargent, intended to
snub Germrny, by leaving the Ameri
can mission in charge of the secre
tary of the legation, for awhile; but
how Frelingnuysen could have so
miscalculated Sargent's disposition is
a mystery not yet explained. The
Eussian ministry was not a promo
tion for Sargent Its salary wa3 the
same, but Russia ranks last among
the first-class- foreign missions of
Great Britain, Franco, Germany and
Russia, because St. Petersburg is the
least desirable- pjace to live. It is
stated here by those, familiar with
diplomatic life in Berlin aud St
Petersburg, that no man appointed
once to the former place would ac
cept afterwards an appointment to
the latter. President Arthur and his
secretary of state must have known
this, and may have transferred Sar
gent in order to give him a favorable
It iff said here that besides his zeal
for his country on the pork question,
not the least part of Sargent's trou
ble at Berlin has arisen from- his in
difference to the etiquette of the Ger
man capital. In other words, Sar-j
gent has beem democratic and unpre-'
tsntious in his sooial life, and has I
not remained jup at night doing honor J
to royal festivals. This had made(
him unpopular with the governing J
class, and with his zeal to do his duty ,
has caused the trouble He is prob
ably now glad to end it with his res
ignation. New Xobk March 3L Ottendor-J
fer, proprietor of the Staais-Zeitung, !
being interviewed, while declining to '
say anything concerning the general j
opinion held by his countrymen in I
this city, said that personally be
looked upon ,the transfer of Sargent
to the Russian ministry in the light j
of a promotion. Referring to thej
Lasker resolutions, Ottendorfersaidrj
"The transmission of them was a
mistake-on the part of the secretary
of state, and that Sargent's action in j
the matter was solely the perform-'
ance of duties assigned. At the same j
time Sargent's position now in Berlin i
is very disagreeable, and perhaps it
may be with a view to relieving him
of that position that the secretary re-
moves him to St Petersburg. Insults I
have been heaped upon him by the '
semi-official jpress throughout Ger
many. The various little principali
ties.dukedoms and provinces through-1
out Germany have their own, local
semi-official organsTlns utterances of j
which are published at the dictation
of parties in .Berlin! I have been in ,
personal receipt of many of thoo
papers, and in many of them I found ',
articles extremely malignant and vi-,
tuperative against Sargent"
A remarkable feature about those
. articles is that their phraseology is
almost, identical, showing that they;
emanate from one head, and I be-;
lieve that head is in oontrol of what
is known, as the repeal fund, located "
in 'Berlin. These official organs, for ,
suoh they are. are supported by the
fund, and are carried on with a view '
of, educating the people 1m loyalty.
With such a state of affairs Sargent's
position is certainly not an enviable
one in Germany. Although he does
not, by any means, possess the ability
of his predecessor, he is a gentleman,
and perhaps it is with a view to
avoiding his getting involved in an
other difficulty that he begs to be al
lowed to oome home.
The Sun's "Washington special says:
"Sargent wrote a note to Hatzfeld,
German secretary of the state for
foreign affairs, long before the Lasker
incident, for which he was gently
reprimanded by Frelinghuyeen. Now
Sargent .bad not interfered in the in
ternal affairs of Germany. He had
barely suggested that if the commis
sion of German experts proposed by
oux government was refused, and the
order of prohibition was not modified,
protective steps might be taken on
our sider Frelinghuy sen's rebuke,
made the more stinging by the mode
of its delivery, and by young Von
Hatzfeld's announcement that he al
ready knew that Minister Sargent
had bean discredited at Washington,
necessarily left Sargent without tup
port at Berlin. He was dishonored
at home and insulted abroad. No
wonder Bismarck snubbed him at the
first opportunity. The wonder is
that Sargent did not throw up his
commission at the time, rather than
carry "with his own hands to the im
perial secretary for foreign affairs the
official reprimand which Frelinghuy
sen had administered.
The Journal says: "Aaron A. Sar
gent will arrive home in time from
Berlin, for a nice vice-presidential
boom. He would have the German
Admission Bill Doomed.
Washington, Maroh 3L It is prob
able that all legislation looking to the
admission of new states from the
northwest daring this congress is
doomed. On Tuesday Senator Har
rison, of the committee on territories,
attempted to have a day set for the
consideration of his bill admitting
Dakota,, when, to everybody's sur
prise, the .Democrats drew the party
lines, and every one of Ihem, except
Garland and Jones of Florida, voted
againsWt. This was hardly expected,
as "the bill admitting Dakota has
been stripped of every objectional
feature; including a provision that
would have allowed the state to vote
st the presidential election this year.
T&e Democrats, however, are said to
belwvf that .Dakota would, if admit
ted, ndjfctro Bepublioan senators to
co&gress, and. for this reason they op
pose it The vote, 33 to 23, shows
theliopeiessless of further agitation.

The Passage of Dolpli's BUL
WxsrrTNOTOsr March. L Oir Prf
day the senate passed a bill intro
duced by Senator Dolph, amending
the revised statutes so as to author
izt the unloading of coal, salt, rail
road iron and other articles of like
bulk under tho superintendence of
customs olficeis, at the expense of the
parties interested, at a place to be
designated by the secretary of the
treasury. This bill, which was ap
proved by Secretary Folger, is de
signed to allow the unloading of
bulky merchandise at the Oakland
side of San Francisco bar, which,
under the present law, cannot be
done; also to allow like merchandise
to be unloaded on the eastern side of
the Willamette river in Portland har
bor. These two results were arrived
at by Senator Dolph, and as others
suggested a general law the bill was
amended to apply to the entire coun
try, and so passed Notwithstanding
the strict construction of the present
law will not permit the unloading of
any merchandise by ships outside of
a port of entry, it has been the prac
tice of the treasury department some
times to allow it to be done. For
many years shippers have been peti
tioning congress to pass suoh a law as
this, and now there are fair prospects
of its enactment.
General Gordon Defeated.
Lonpon, March 31. Later advices
give details of Gordon's engagement
of the 16th inst The rebels pursued
the Egyptians two miles after the
battle. The confusion during the
fire was fearful to behold The
Egyptian regulars and the Bashi Ba
zouks kept shouting out that their
generals had betrayed them The
wounded received no attention for
seven hours. The troops had been
clamoring three weeks before they
met the enemy. In the early part of
the encounter the Egyptians were
successful and the enemy was actually
in full retreat when their cavalry
made a desperate charge. Despite
this reverse the inhabitants still re
main staunch friends of Gordon. One
Arab sent Gordon 1000, as his treas
ury is empty. Another Arab equipped
2000 blacks for him. Two black pashas
have been arrested for charging into
the ranks of their own troops, thus
allowing the enemy to enter the gap
