NEW YOUK , July 10. A Londoi
cable says : In conversation will
Bright about his reported resignation
ho said the true causn of it was thi
Egyptian policy of the covornmonl
culminating in what Mr. Bright con
sldors an unjustifiable use of force it
Alexandria. Ho was opposed tc
sending the fleet to Egypt originally ,
for political purpose. Ho cunsidorcc'
that England had no business to interfere <
fore with
of Egypt , having no serious intoresl
there except the Suez canal , and the
canal ws never menaced by Arabi 01
anybody else. Qo believes that
the massacre on the llth of Juno was
largely provoked by the presence of
the English llout. Ho regards the
continuous prcsonco of the fleet , with
a constantly increasing number of
foreign men-of-war in a friendly hnr-
bor , na in itself a menace and an un
friendly - < ct. The motive of Rending
them , namely , the protection of
French subjects , was a good motive ,
but matters were so managed that the
fleet became
rather than protection. When asked
what the fleet should have done after
Admiral Seymour had delivered the
ultimatum and Arabl discontinued
the armaments nnd then broke his
promise , ho ana\vered that wo have
yet heard only one side of the story ,
and he seemed inclined to discredit
the evidence of the electric light ,
which showed that the troops were
continuing the work. Ho insisted ,
however , that these details were com
paratively unimportant. The real
cause of his resignation was the uao
of force , which was not defensible on
moral grounds.

ALEXANDRIA , July-16. The , moas-
'ures taken'by Admiral Seymour to
restore order have boon completely
successful. Cafes and shops are re
opening and matters are assuming a
more Bottled appearance. The
great fires are dying out and nearly
all looting has been stopped.
\ Naval officers are nearly unanimous
in thinking the fleet fired with greater
precision than believed possible.

Many of the houses which yester
day were intact are now in axhos ,
among them the British consulate.
Eye witnesses relate that soldiers and
others after plundering the houses
heaped up bedding , saturated it with
petroleum and then set the pile on
lire. To-day there wore no fresh fires ,
but ruins are tumbling and encum Cl
bering the streets. Alexandria is like
a city of the dead , although a few
more Greeks and Maltese are visible

and Greeks who disembarked from
their respective ships of war act as police - Bol

British oocupy the forts and bastions , fllol

fused to land. A sister of the kho- OB
divo's wife died from premature con ca
finement during the bombardment. arhe
The plundering and burning began on he
the 12th. Scarcely any European
dwellings were spared. It appears EC
that largo stores of petroleum were laiAi
sent to Alexandria a week before the Aimi
bombardment , especially to sot fire to mi
the town. Incendiaries state that sti
they received instructions to sot fire anmi

W YOKK , July 15. Lieutenant
Commander Gorringo in an interview
said the bombardment of Alexandria
was without justification ; that there
were no real massacres until after the
Enulssh ilect opened fire. The bom
bardment was a mcro pretext for
crushing the national party of Egypt ,
and the most unjustifiable net the
British have over been guilty of. Ag
itation of the Irish question hero is
just as good ground for a British
bombardment of New York as the
British had thero.

WASHINGTON , July ID , Senator al

much of the army bill as retires
orman and Sheridan , lloforred , at
riio aonato then proceeded to ( ho
isidoration of the pension appro-
ations bill , the internal revenue
! having boon laid asidn informally.
Senator Plumb's point of order , or
oommittoo amendment directing dn
secretary of the interior annually in
transmit to congress a list of all or
isions berne on the rolls , was vi
ick from the bill. viyc
ionator Beck offered an amendment yc
uiring the commissioner of pen ycT"
is once in each year , to causa a list T"
ill pensioners and applicants for OS
sions for each county in the United th
tes to bo made out and published
at least ono newspaper in such
nty. The adoption of the amtfnd- pa
it would prevent to a great meas- cal
the perpetration of frauds. No "I
est soldier would object. Objoo-
tion would only como from men wh <
were dishonestly receiving pensions
A citizen of Louisvil'o ' who had bcoi
n soldier but had lost an arm in a din
ropulablo brawl was no receiving i
pension for that disability.
Senator Plumb did not deny then
was some fraud under the ponsioi
laws , but ho asserted it was ntacticall ;
impossible to construct a pension lis
without frauds creeping in , The wa
hod cost § 0,000,000,000. H had beei
a big job , nnd thank God it had boai
well done , and if it cost § 0,000,000 ,
000 to support the men who hnd car
ried the lUg it would bo money wcl
spoilt as long an ono of those voler.ui
remain to drag his emaciated bed ;
through the country which ho hn !
helped to keep in tact.
Senator Beck agreed in this view
but stated ho would always opjinso tin
foisting upon the pension rolls of mot
who claimed to have been soldiers
but who had never served in the armj
or navy ,
Senator 1'latl , chairman of the com
mittop , expressed the belief that then
would bo a deficiency in thoappropria
tion of Si > 5,000,000 or § 30,000,0K (
boioro the close of the current yonr ,
beyond the present amount of $07-
010,000 for pensions , exclusive of the
expense of the bureau ,
Senator Logan opposed the amend
ment and claimed the bill as reported
from thn committee on pensions threw
a safeguard around the pension otllco.
llo disliked this annual attack upon
the pension list and these charges of
fraud , If Senator Bock know any
fraudulent pensioner it was his duty
to the country to Inform the commis
sioners of pensions of the fnct , lie-
fore ho ( Logan ) would niako a raid
upon men and charge them with fraud
and perjury and crime , ho would name
the mon. Ho had boon willing that a
list of pensioners should bo annually
transmitted to congress , but ho coula
see no necessity for having that list
published in the nowspapoia and
§ 500,000 paid therefor.
Senator Plait also opposed the
amendment , which was finally ruled
out upon a point of order. The bill
was then passed. The senate insisted
upon the amendment to the river and
harbor appropriation bill , and a con
ference committee ordered , consisting
of Senators McMillan , Jones ( Nevada -

Since 1870 the claim haa been made
I hat great injustice was done the state
of Nebraska by the ninth census , and
that , had her true population boon
stated , she would have boon entitled
to two representatives in congress. It
was claimed that this was shown by
the state census of 1872. which wns
considerably in x ois of the requisite
number. On the strength of this there
has appeared a second , or contingent
roprenentativo , claiming u neat in the
liouso. In the last congress Mr. T.
0. Hawos appeared , armed with a cer
tificate from Secrotary-of-Stnto Qos-
[ > or , as to the population under the
jpiiBUs of 1872 , and at the present SOB-
lion Mr. T. J. Majors appeared with
like cortifioato from S. J. Alexander.

: onaus of 1872.
heao certificates passed without dial-
ongo , and it was not until the ju-
liciary committee of the present
louse had agreed to report in favor of
iving a suat to Majors that Mr.
.lammond , in preparing a speech in
nipport of the minority report , found
ho iitentifal ligurca given in the ofll-
sial publicitions of the state us the
ioneus of 187-1. Further investiga-
ion nhowod that no foil census was
akon by the ntuto until 1874. These
'acta were communicated to the com-
nittoo , which at once reversed its no-
.ion and recalled the favorable report ,
