BRITISH POMTICa IN THE TWO HOCSKS. LONDON , July G. The St , Petersburg cor respondent of the Unity News says : ' 'The convention with Russia was already prepared when Gladstone resigned , therefore it only requires Salisbury's signature. Thropbies from the Pulikistl battle arrived at Askabad. They include eight guns beating English arms , dated 1830. In the house oflords this afternoon Salis bury stated ho would continue the policy of Gladstone Iu regard to the negotiations with llussia. In moving an adjournment of the house ho said : A matter cf gravest importance- was the recent negotiations with Russia in regard to the frontier of Afghanistan. Ho said as far as ho could judge tlio negotiations between Russia and England had been con ducted with an earnest desire to arrive at an adequate settlement , but ho was bound to cay the negotiations had not gone far enough to enable him to speak positively. lie must ask their lordships cot to attach too much im portance to these negotiations ni final and conclusive , oven when concluded , 113 the whole condition of affairs in central Asia was very uncertain and unsatisfactory. "Wo hope , ho continued , "to arrive at an amicable set tlement of the differences in regird to the ulfikar pass , which England had promised the ameer would bo Included in Afghanistan. What had boon promised must bo kept. Whatever settlement might be arrivad at it was nur duty to skilfully advise and vigorously carry out measures for the defense oi the Indian Iron- tier. Furthermore wo should stretch out be yond so that when the tide of war comes it will not como near our defenses. These preparations must bo promptly and ener getically made , tnd I trust that this policy will never be abandoned. In cinctudiog his speech Lord Salisbury said : "The present difficulty In Egypt ii perhaos ono of the most complicated problems that has ever bean submitted to the govern ment. The difficulties ore enormoui and of many kinds. Those difficulties now form the subject of negotiations. It is , perhaps , rather too early to express an opinion as to the issuo. liofore deciding upon any remedy the gov ernment must take counsel of those best qualified by exporicuoo to guide them. Their policy , should bo steady and without osclllialion. One of the most momentous issues was the defense of the frontier of Egypt by .Hians , assisted no doubt in some measure by ourselves , against fanaticism and barbarism. It is pecpseary to establish a state of things so that if wo eventually withdraw our protecting hand Egypt would bo left safe. All of those ques tions require time to settle. One principle must animate , namely , so to weigh our stops that , once taken , v > o must not retrace them , The military difficulty is a largo one , the po litical difficulty is a greater ono. "Still the question was whether the prov inces in the Soudan , which had lately ceased to bo practically under the control of Egypt , should be abandoned to their fate. The most impoitant of all the Egyptian questions , how ever , WAS the financial question , which was as yet unsettled. Until this question was settled nothing could be done. There was no alter native between taking n steady , cautious , and circumspect policy and in taking n course which would cover England with shame , namely , to abandon Egypt to her fate. Salisbury then referred to the domestic pol icy of his government. lie said it was in tended to avoid contentious legislation and to promote only mich measures as were neces sary. These would Include , perhaps , the secretary for Scotland bill. lie would wind up the session at the earliest date possible , and expressed the hope that the general elec tions would ba held on November 17 , Lord Salisbury's statement lasted half an hour , lie frequently emphasized the fact that the khedive had throughout been loyal to England , The house of lords then adjourned , The earl of Carnarvon , lord lieutenant for Ireland , eave statistics of crime in Ireland iu recent years showing an immense decrease since the passage of the crimes act , "Tha government , " ho said , "under existing circum stances , consider it Inadvisable to renew the net. They trusted that a firm administration of ordinary law would maintain the tranquility. " Mr. Charles Henry Ilopwood , an advanced liberal , moved an amendment In favor of leg islating as quickly as possible respecting the oath of office. Sir Wilfred Lawson , radical , seconded the motion , Gladstone said ho held the stronger views on the question of princi ple' , behaving that the house had acted unconstitutionally and illegally [ lib eral chrors. ] Ho would support Mr , Hop- wood. It was the duty of tha house to legislate in the direction of removing an existing grievance , The present parliament , throughout , had grievously wronged tha elec toral priveleges of Northampton. It was therefore tha duty of the liuuso to redress that serious wrong [ cheers ] Gladstone thought , however , that the scope of the amendment should be narrower In dealing with the case before them. In the house of commons to day Mr. Brad- laugh , escorted by Labouchere and Burt , both radicals , advanced to the table with tha pur pose of taking the oath , To this Hicks Beach interposed objections and moved that liradlaugh bo refused permission to swear , the ba directed and that sergoant-at-arms to exclude him from the precincts of the house unless he engaged not to disturb the proceedings , Tha motion was adopted by a vote of 2U ( < to 219. After the vote had boon tiken Bradlaiigh re-advanced to the table and eald he would obey the speaker's orders and withdraw , lie appealed to the various constituencies against the injustice done him , bowed and withdrew from the house , Sir Michael Hicks Beach in reply to La- bouchere said no communication had been re' ceived from Russia with rep ard to the exported - ported utterance cf Sir Randolph Churchil that , "Russia has tricked , deceived and lied to us as only Russia can. Sir Randolph , ' Beach added , "does not admit that his speed was accruatoly quoted. " The house then entered into commltteo o supply. FOREIGN NBWS. THE 8U1UIKH AS3UKS IN 111ELAND.

Special Telegram to The BEE , NEW YORK , July C. The Herald's Valencia cable says : The cholera is still slaying its thousands and ten thousands. Nor is it sure that the epidemic has yet done its worst. The news from several afflicted districts is bettor , but this is partly attributed to the exodus which has half j emptied Murcia , In Valencia the mortality instead of diminishing grows greater , During the days signs of death are kept carefully out of sight , but at night the roada ara filled with tha muflled sound of hearses rolling and feet tramping onward to the suburban cemeteries. All whom business or poverty does not tie to the city have left to avoid the plague. Those u'ntblo to flea perforce go about ai usual but the crowded churches and thrones who fairly besiege the laboratory of Dr. Ferran tell their own tale. Cholera is ; on every tongue ; every paper is full of cholera , Cholera , Asiatic and sporadic , have been described to death. Wnen you have seen a dozen cases you have seen them all , The Interest of the present epodemlc lies less in tbo symptoms , curious though some of them are , than in all important and absorbing question "Can wo be protected against cholera , and if so , how ? " After having vis ited a few heuses and private dwellings in fected with the plague , the Herald's corre spondent devoted more of his attention to lr , Ferran'a inocculatlon question. Foliow- ing the example of the medical authorities sent hero , he has endeavored to ascertain whether Dr. Ferran's vaccination system Is safe , and whether it is efficacious , Dr , Fer ran's name is just now the battle cry , his par tisans and fees are equally numerous. To search for truth under thn present circum stances is almost as difficult as to look for a needle in a bale of hay. Time and patience alone can fully settle the points at issue. Careful inquiry , however , has convinced you correspondent that whether the anti-cholera vaccination is to be recom mended or not , most of the investigators who have so far vilited Dr , Ferran have been carried away by generous and perhaps natur al enthusiism and that the enquiries have lost much of their value , owing to their not being impartial. Dr. Ferran claims that by vaccin ating with graduated virus he protects _ the people against cholera for a certain time , provided five clear days are allowed for the vaccine to work. As evidence of his success ha gives you results obtained in fifteen or twenty thousand cases In different places , but his chief argument Is the lucce&s of his experi ments at Aleira , which , out of it population variously estimated at from 20,000 and 22,000 , 9.1CO persons have submitted to inoc- culation and 7,500 , to re-lnocculation , Tha re sults show that tha proportion of recoveries among tbo Inosculated or ro-tnoccnlated tc those among the non.inosculated people is ai GO to 201 , . while the deaths from tbo same categories compare as well to 120 , In. othoi words , non-lnocculatod people who feel il from cholera were four and a half times ai these who were inocculatod , and the deaths of non-inoculated people wore twelve timei as numerous as those who were inoculated , Tlio Flew Insulters Squeal.

The bulk of tLo country and n largo portion of the city wcro shaken out of the wheat deal to-day. After having hold their purchases for several months they at last found the load too heavy for any ordinary shoulders. The talk on the floor Is that W. T. Baker dumped in the neighborhood of 3,000COO bushels of August , of which T. / . . Leitcr was the unlucky owner of about 1,000,000 bushels. The fall was only ic as compared with both the opening prices of to-day and the closing quotations of 1'riday , but the tone of thomarket was W3akor in a far greater ratio than the de cline jn prices. At the opening there wcio sales in the wheat pit all the way from SSfc to 8'Jo , but the official opening was put at S'Jo. From this there waa a recovery to 83 c , the top for the day , when the break began and kept up quite steadily to the close the weak conditions being than helped by unusual ac tivity in the pork pit where prices wore grow ing steadily cheaper through the effect of a reported yellow fever outbreak in the seuth. What might bo called a supporting influence is the favor yitIl which tha more remote de liveries are viewed from n speculative stand point. While everything near is being fairly sold , there is a good inquiry for long lutures , and this alone tends to support the market.

Fat cattle are in fair demand and the turn in prices was rather higher. The run was light not only in Chicago , but at all other points , and the percent of fat cattle was rather below the average. The highest price was § 5.75 for a fair bunch of natives and from that down to Sl.SOgG.lO forgraascrs nnd inferior natives , Comparing the quality and prices with Fu- dav. the general market was , as stated above , a shade higher. There were only a few lots of Texans in the market and they were of the sort wanted by butchers and they sold as high if not higher than on Friday.
