A Washington dispatch eays "a number of Senators and mimbern of Cougrcss called upon the President with referenco to the spoesh of ! Senator Howc. They all expressed more ! ing m the matter than the President himself, i and üuggested that tho speech be answered, ff-aring that to perniit it to pass in silencc might be an admisnion of lts entire truth. The President took a different view, placing fcimself on the ground that what he had done in tho ir of official action was basedon nis senso of right, I without thinking for a moment, what might be i the result as affecting him personally. He was opposed to a public response, preferring that nis acts shonld be the bent of hi motives and principies. He had songht to form his duty, and with thú hewacontcnt, no matter how ethers withprejwliced niiuds mieht view his conduct."

FOKEIGN NKWS. A IíONdon special to the CMcago Times saya " ncither England nor Russia Eeenis willüig to yield, and the result io incroased mutual illwill, whieh may, npon a mero tcchnicnlity, drift the countiies into war. Information is received from varions European capitula to the effect that gloomy views, the outcome of the present situatimi. genorally prevaal, and that war, while not npceiaariiy ncar, is inevitable in the end." Diplomatic relations betweou Ruasia and Turkey have beeu renewed. ïhe Grand Duke and tho Sultan have exebanged visito at Constantiuople. A cable diMpatch of March 28 saya : " Rnsúia's an8wer to England s late question merely saya that tlie Government adheres toitsformer views. No hope of the meeting of the congreas ia now Jefe, and there seenia to be no mean of estiinatiag what will be the outenme from the present diplomatic muddie. It is cortain that England acd Itutsia havo now reached tho most critical part of their iutercourse, and there is moro probability of war than peace. Bussia is making every tff.rt to ifolate England from the othe'r pow.TS. and, if 8he can obtain the noutralïty of Austria aud HuDgary, it is not Hkely that Englaud can get any othe'r ally The Sultan has honored Osuian Paaha by 'appointing him to the command inchief of theOttoman forcea. There bas been a seriou explosión in a mino in North Staffordahire, Eng. About thirty minere lost their livej. Ik tho Britith House of Commons, on tho 28th nlt, tho Hon. Gathorno Hardy, Secretary of State for War, replyiug to various question?, aaid it was necessary to cali out tho first cla68 of tbti anny reserve.'numbcring 13,000. aud the militia r86( rvc, which was between 25,000 and 26,000. Thia was followed immcdiately hy tho ro-ignatio:i of Lord Derby, Miuister of Foreign Aftairs. In amiouncing hi reiirement, Lord Derby said he did not diaagree with the Cabinet as to tho conditions iipon which England shonld be representod in the conference, but Bolely upon certain moaenres which he did not consider prudent in the interest s of peace or neees?ary for tho safety of the country. Diaraeli thon explaincd that the jr.ea6ure ojjjected to by tie retiring Minister was tho calling out of the reserves. This step had been resolved npon, he frankly said, in consequence of the Govcrnment's belitf that tho congress will not be held, and that all hopes of rectifying the dUtmrböd balance of power in the Moditorranean had ceaaed. Late advices from Havana, Cuba, report that the surrender of the insurgents, armed and unarrued, continúes in different portions of the ialaud, and only one of tho promiuent ohiefs, namííd Maceo, is still holding out in the ruouutains of the Eastern Department, with, it U Haid, about 400 f ollowers, ircostly colorcd .... A proclamation has been issued by the Hussian authoritie inviting tho exrcatriated Turks to return to thoir homes in Bulgaria. The Kaflir war in South África is ended The Pope bas indicatod his intention of rosumI ing diplomatic relations with Great Britain .... i The Kuísinn army around Coustantinoplc is bcing largelyreinforced Orders have been Bent to tho British Admiral oommanding the Mediterranean fleet in the Sea of Marmora to patrol the Dardanelies aud Bosphoms with or without Turkish consent, and to use aueh pressure, in unisón with tho Britieh Minister at Const&nUnople, as to force the Porte to reaist the demands and eccroachmeata of the Bussian ! Grand Duke. The visit of Gen. ïgnaticff to Vienua for the purpose of gaining over Austria to the Bussian sido has proved a failnre. He has returned to St. Petersburg with the alarming news that Austria will not accept the San Stefano treaty, and will immodiately masa an army of 400,000 men on the Bosnian frontier, with a view of protecting Hungarian interest. Loed Salisbuby, the new Minister of eign Affairo, bas addressed a circular to the power?, giving England'a reasons why she j uot enter the proposed congress. Nearly every article of tbo San Stefano treaty is condemned I as lending to establish a daugerou I sian upremacy iu the East. Lord Salisbury I claims not only the right to dieenss each clauae of the tre.ity in detail, but to raise objections lo the treafy in the aggregate. In a word, England wishes to set aside the whole (rtaty, and begin, k' novo, the work of settüngthe Eastern questions by diticimsiong in a oongreas . . . . Queen Victoria's message iu relation to mobilizing tho reserves was read in both hoases of tho British Parliament last week. It staf,es very briefly that the present state of publio affairs in the East constitutes a case of groat emergenoy, within tho meaning of tho acts of Parliameut, aud that. thereforo, the Government is about to direct that the reserve force and the militia reserve force bo forthwith called out for permanent service. Debate on the message was postpoiied for a week. It is stated in a cable dispatch from Constautinople that "Osman and Kyouf Pashas have bccome more Hussiaa than English. The Turkiüh and Itustian soldierB fraternizo, the latttr going about ConKtantiuople in uniform without evoking animosity.
