THE ARKEAIUi DILL.
LONDON , August 13 , In the house
of lords to-day , Lord Carlingford : ,
lord of the privy seal , moved the
adoption of the amendments of the
commons to the house of lords amend
ments to the arrears bill.
Salisbury mid the object of his
amendments to the bill was lo pro
vide against Injury to landlords who
had solvent tonanta. Ho believed , ho
said , the bill was a public blunder and
tint it would not bo a final measure.
The bill without a provision requiring
the assent of landlord would bo most
pernicious and an act of simple rob
bery. The peer * , ho atldpd , who as-
sistcd in passing his amendments con
sidered it not advisable to reject the
bill. lie therefore would now chul-
lonpo a division. Salisbury added the
conservative peers at a meeting at his
residence to day , decided by an over
whelming majority , that , in view of
the state of affairs in Ireland and
Egypt , it was not expedient to reject
ths arrears bill. Ho snid ho was not
of that opinion , but ho found himself
in a small majority.
All ro-amondmonU of the commons
to the arrears of rout bill were agreed
to , after Karl of Limerick and the
Marquis of Watortord , conservatives ,
had added their protests.
The chief secretary for Ireland
stated in the commons that when the
arrears of rent bill becomes i law , the
government will toke into considera

THI ! IRISH POLICE STRIKE.
The lord lieutenant visited the con
stabulary depot at 1'hwnix park to
day and addressed the men. Ho re
ferred to the irreproachable character
which the constabulary has hitherto
borne and oxpresiod a sincere hop o
that nothing would occur to mar their
splendid reputation. Ho regretted the
course the men had adopted and an
nounced that 180,000 will bo imme
diately distributed , n'nd that any griev
ance would bo immediately inquired
into. Hia statement was enthusias
tically received and the men expressed
complete confidence in his assurances.
The grievances of the constabulary
were in reality a demind for an ad
vance of ono shilling a d.iy in pay , in
creased allowances to married men
living out of barracks , and an equali
zation of pensions. The disaffection
was greatest in IMuustcr and Con-
naught , where the constables have soon
pretty severe service during the last
two years ; four-liftha of the _ whole

The gbiiorul averages of the principal

NKW YOUK , August 10. The Trunk
line passenger agents to-day adopted u
lower schedule of passenger ratoa for
all railroads botwoun this city and
Tlio Inosorablo Vlnlntf.
The telegraph informs us that there
is to bu another turn of the screws in
the freight extortion from which wo
have so long been suffering Freights
by Panama have hitherto been lower -
than by rail , but an edict has been in-
eued that all goods sent by the Pacific i
Mail shall hereafter come by the over
land roadt ) . The news which receive
ceive is to the effect that the last
steamer which loft Now York for the
Isthmus took little fruight for China
and no domestics. The contracts with
traiiBcontinol shippers includes all
freights to San Francisco and beyond ,
and in view of possible inteiruntiou i of
tralllc by the SUCK zanal the railroads ,
wo are informed , havocnnoludod tliuy
must pay u higher rate , and have ,
therefore , advanced the tariff from
SIB to $18 per ton by steamer to15
by rail. Naturally , Now York mer
chants are indignant , nud are canting
about for moaua of relief.
Thin action could originate only
with the ownera of the Central Pacific
railroad in this city. They control the
freight tnulio from Panama to Son
Francisco by steamer , and own both
the nloaiuihip Hues from this port to
China. Nothing could bo done with
out their co-operation , and very littiu
in the way of overland freight ex
tortion is done unless at their
mujgcstion. It is Homotimoa veno
out from the ollices at the corner n
Fourth and Townsend that the kno
of magnates who there register the !
edicts are innocent Jamba led to the
slaughter by a terrible ogre known aa
E.Ur P. Vining , frcighl agent of the
Union Pacific. They nrer that they
would gladly brine frciffht at n low
rate to San Francisco morehants , but
Vining forbids. As for the infamous
contract system , they would never
have attempted it except for Vininp.
Vining evolved this plausible chemo
of invitation inlo the railroad par
lor from his inner consciousness
and the trembling Stubbs
Bonding thodcopnbasomcntof Messrs ,
Iluntinplon , Stanford and Crocker ,
was obliged to accept it. Even now
they would give it up , but Vining for
bids. All now freight schedules , in
tended to crush out merchants who
have a woxknosfl for shipping around
Capo Horn , are fratrroa by Vining ,
whoso fiendish fertility in that kind of
Invention , we are given to understand ,
is without parallel in thn history of
railroad management , Tilling is the
ine.xoriablo Jerkins , who sits in some
inaccessible back ofiico , refusing to bo
placated and of ad adamadtino nature
that never yields.
To anyone who knows the- methods
of the gentlemen who manage the
Central Pacific all this is tie purest
invention. It is a tale for marines ,
and not for San Hancisco merchants.
Beyond the fact ttat Mr. E. if Yin-
ing is n gontlomnn of insinuating
manners who labors under tha hallu
cination that Hairvlut
was not n
woman , and that Shakespeare knew it
all the time , there is not the slightest
reason for the iiuput-ition. ThoUn
ion Pacific could not jregulnto freights
to San Francisco if it desired.
It never dictates to < the Central
Pacific. The giant monopoly of Cali
fornia would not suffer luch distatiou
for a moment. Purhupn now and then
the more gentlemanly portion of1 its
has intervals of moral distress , during
which it is apologetic. At other timoa-
it is wont to boast , throu/jh / C. P. Ilun-
tington , its chief mouthpiece , that it
controls $300,005,000 ot capital , and-
that ityill either control the North
ern Pacific or break it. AHthoohanjo
in rates made by the four lines which
connect Chicago with Omaha are
made by Mr , Stubbs under a general
order from his masters It was <
Stubbs who , under a Chicago alias ,
raised the rate on hardware
from that city to San Francisco , last
May fiO pur cent , in order to dragoon
certain dealers in hajdwaro and agri
cultural implements in this cily into
making , contracts. And ho succeeded ,
for , of the half-dozen firms then ship
ping around the Horn , not one to-day
darus to bring a pound of freight to
San Francisco except by rail. They
are ( not compdlled to enter into a con
tract , says Mr. MopliistopholoaStubbp.
QJ , no ! There is no compulsion about
jt. But when n man who must now
and then replenish his stock speedily
by rail to- keep his custom finds that
his . neighbor is getting the same a <
ticlos nt ono-fourth the rate , and
that as much is charged for hi'a-
small shipments as the shipment cf
his , entire otook would cost under con
tract , ho knows ho is in danger-of
ruin and is obliged to yield. If a
highwayman puts a pistol to a trav-
owr's head and says , "Your money or
your life , " the traveler is not obliged
tj , put his hand Into his pocket and
dfraw out his puraa and other valua-
bws. Ir toniU > f doing this vojjmtarj-
nJ it ho can give his life. There is no
compulsion about it. So with-tho
San Francisco merchant. He need
not sign a contract ; ' lie can bo ruinod.
It is perfectly simple and exquisitely
logical. There is no tyranny in the
case , but thn most admirable forbear
ance i and the amplest liberty of
ucot As n alight relief from thia mon
otonous raising of freights , wo have
from Chicago a faint intimation that
tlM Chicago , Burlington and Quinoy
railroad company contemplates build
ing west from Denver to the Pacific
count. The plan ia not n now one , ,
and there in uomo possibility that it
may some day bo realized. It ia an
organia.ition : quite , ts powerful as the
Central Pacific , and h the only ono
on , the continent that the latton-
fears. The merchants of Dnn-
vor have for many years ,
been Buffering from the extortion of
the t Union Pacific what those of San
Francisco are now enduring from the >
Central Pacific. No sooner hud the
Chicago , Burlington it Qaincy reached )
that city than , without solicitation ,
and as ono man , the injured shippers ,
took their business from the company
from which they h.id endured so much , .
and gave it to the new comer. It was
o simple act of justice from which our
own Monopoly might learn a useful
