Binil.iv , August 11. The most discussed
event of the week was Lord Salisbury's
speech at the lord mayor's banquet in Lon
don. The confident tone of the speech was
welcomed us confirming the National Xei-
tung's statement that Prince Bismarck be
lieved that the meeting between the emperor
and the c/nr would result in u long period of
peace. 'I ho only portion of Salisbury's
speech that is thought to bo open to criticism
is his reference to Bulgaria. Advices re
ceived from St. Petersburg to-day | n no way

inlstlc remarks. On the other hand , it was
stated on reliable authority that Russia ad

ander nnd sending n Russian commissioner
to restore diplomatic relations without inter
fering with internal affairs , preliminary to
allowing the Bulgarians to elect any
prince they think lit , piovidcd ho bo

church. Salisuusy's speech met with greater
criticism in Vienna than elsewhere , his ap
parently improved feeling toward Russia
being unpalatable to the Austrians. The

Herr von Schloezer , the German represen

from Cardinal Hcmpolla , papal secretary of

are rumors that the results of these confer

tlie plans for the kaiser's visit to Italy. The
Italian government is arranging a railway
excursion from all points of Italy in order to
bring together a largo concourse of people in

LONDON- , August 11. [ Now York Herald
Cable Special to Tnc Uiic.l The last day's '
session did not ebb away peacefully. Remains
of the warlike spirit are still visible , although
the combatants diminish rapidly in numbers.
Mr. Gladstone has gone , and Hnrcourt ap
pears to have followed him. Morley is no
more seen. Lord lltutington and Sir Henry
James still make themselves visible for a
little while , and Chamberlain returned for a
brief interval one day. Some keep an eye on
the liberal unionists or they would all vanish ,
but the Glndsloninns can bo trusted to hold
together even without their great leader. The
conservatives also continue to drag them
selves to the chamber reluctantly.
The Irish party are sticking to their
l > osts. Blggar is never absent. Some
of his colleagues wish that ho was , lor it
must be frankly confessed that when the
nationalists , get off the homo rule question
they will bo by no means united. Last night
and early this morning they fell out fre
quently. Blggar resisted the progress of
several bills which his Irish friends deem
necessary and desirable , and although Sex
ton appealed repeatedly to him ho refused to
give way. At List Sexton sncermgly de
clared that he could scarcely call Biggnr his
colleague again. When Dr. Tanner set off on
the warpath Sexton administered to him so
sharp a rebuke that Tanner seemed
on the point of shedding tears. Biggar is the
terror of his party when ho means to
have his own wuy. Ho will oppose a bill
even though ull his colleagues earnestly de
sire that it should pass.
We who look on cannot help coming to the
conclusion that it will not all be honey and
rose water on St. Stephen's green when the
Irish parliament is called together. The
members of the government arc bound to bo
hero at the opening nnd remain till the close.
Poor Mr. Smith looks utterly tired out , and
if ho is rash enough to undertake the leader
ship of the house of commons another session
he will forfeit all claim to sympathy. Tno
w oik , anxiety and responsibility are crush
ing him down. Ho has done his best , but ho
ought not to go on staggering under a burden
which is far too gre.it for him.
Balfour stands the racket a little better ,
but ho is absent many hours together and
gets plenty of rest , whereas Smith has to bo
eternally on the watch. If Balfour is tired
it only renders him a trifle more languid nnd
indifferent , and the people pity him and
praise his devotion to his country. Ho knows
how to economi7o his strength. The amount
of work ho does will never hurt him. In his
own room hero ho has a very comfortable
couch , and when ho is not reading novels he
is iiblecp. How Smith must envy him.
Goschen comoi wandering into the house
in his fldgity , restless , purblind way
feeling for his eyeglass , which
has generally worked its way around
to his back. The chancellor is gloomy nnd de
jected , for the session unquestionable prcssa-
gcs failui e so far as ho is concerned. His iiorso
tax , wheel tax and foreign securities tax all
are deeply resented by the classes effected ,
und the ona popular ido i that Goschen was a
financial genius is exploded forever. Last
session ho borrowed money to create a sur
plus. This year ho has revived or invented
a number of vexatious imposts
which the public scoff at. Even
at the Lord Mayor's dinner ho
was received in dead silenco.Tlio Goschen
boom Is over , and nobody is moro conscious
of It than the chancellor himself.
The house of lords always docs what it
likes. The larger number of members are
yachting or in Scotland getting ready for
next Monday's grouse , but the remnant of
the faithful remained till to-day to support
Lord Salisbury in his efforts to get the Par-
nellite commission bill safely through. The
premier made a perfunctory sort of speech
to a sleepy house. Poor old Bob Lowe ,
Lord Sherbrooke , came into the gallery with
ills wife , for of late ho never ventures upon
the floor of the house. Ho haunts the upper
regions like a phantcm.
Ono princess made her way into the gal
lery. The son of that lord chancellor who
wrote so many dull or spiteful lies , Lord
Campbell , sat fast asleep. Lord Grauvillo
und three or four other Gladstonlans tried
to keep awake. Near Lord Salisbury , by
way of keeping him In countenance , were
Lords Cross , Knutsford , that sublime
mediocrity , nnd Lord Ashbourno , who

On Thursday , finding they could not gat into

formed in procession and started for a quiet
lounge down the Uuc Kivoll. A strong force
of police , almost as numerous , hastily
told off to watch them , joined the
cortege and tramped round about the
city with the strikers , wondering what
wild mischief was brewing. After a couple
of hours of this amusement the sergeant do

the navvies where they were going.
"LJlcssed if we know , " was the answer.
"Where arc you taking us ! "
While the Paris waiters were smashing
windows in the Rue do St. Honore the other
night a halt was made in .front of the Cafe

ished the windows and the mob were about
to complete its triumph by upsetting the
glasses of the harmless , citizens who were
enjoying their beer ontsldo when a well
known journalist calmly drew a loaded re
volver from his pocket , laid it on the table ,
besldo him , nnd told the aggressors they
might do as they chose with the windows ,
but if they dared lay n linger on his book , ho
would blow somebody's brains out. The

column of disastrous Hoods and destroyed
crops. Fortunately the Hooded districts are
gradually emerging from the water and arc
in no great danger of further overflow.
With crops thu case is different. Mnny a
small farmer who was Hooded last spring has
been under water again this summer , and
will suffer all winter for lack of the two
crops so lost. Even in the unllooded dis
tricts fruit and similar crops suffered se
verely from wind and rain. Apples , pears
and plums have , as a rule , been thrashed
from the trees by winds or rotted by rain.
One little incident tells the whole story of
the summer. A half frozen swallow family ,
attracted by the light and heat of an open ail-
swinging lamp , arranged a roosting place on
the cross piece above the lamp , nnd spent
each night swinging backward and forward
with the lamp , preferring the noise of the

thusmstio iidmlreis of the laud of dykes ,
dimes and mills that ever entered Holland ,
when tlio good ship Amsterdam had brought
them this week mifcli through fogs nnd mists
to Rotterdam harbor. A steam yacht , con
taining the committee of reception and rep
resentatives of the Amsterdam and Rotter
dam press , met the New Yorkers. As they
sailed up cheer followed cheer. Amid the
Hags of all nations the st.irs and stripes were
the most cheered.

American faces have llittcd past me on the

Fox was dining at the Cnfo do Paris lust
night , where he dropped in for
a dcml-tasso. Just before I had
caught u glimpse of Nordica nnd
Kellogg riding down the Avenue I1 Opora.
John Jacob Astor is hero looking about him
rather sadly I thought. Soon after I ran
into the arms of Augustln Daly , who had
como over to make llnal arrangements for
his coming to Purls. Henry E. Dlxoy
was at Hindu a few days since on
his return from n flying tour through
Italy nnd Switzerland. Adonic told
me he had gone through the entire- pro
gramme , churches and all , but regretted he
had no chance of favoring the pope with a
sacred song and dunce. Marie Roe is still
winning laurels on her tour through Franco.
No tribute she has received hits given her
greater pleasure than the modest salute she
had at Alx les Uaius from Mr. Toolo. The
great comedian kissed her on bath cheeks in
Gallic fashion , exclaiming us he did so ; "Ici

Cable Special to Tin : l\rr. \ J The naval
week closed with the Innings for England's
long blockaded enemy. By u clcvor man
euver , brilliantly executed , Admiral Tryon ,
succeeded . in forcing the blockade ;
of Buntry Bay In the darkness last Sunday
morning , when Admiral Haird awoke to the
fact that homo of the fastest cruis
ers of the licet were nt largo
and free to direct hostile operations
against the coasts. As the Calypso had al
ready escaped the vlgilanco of Admiral
Baird nnd was rapidly approaching the un-
ptotccted Scottish seaports , it became clear
that an attempt , to blockade them had failed
at every point , and there was nothing left for
the Biitish fleets but to follow up the hostile
bbcls , which in the meantime were work
ing their way along the coasts.
Greenroek was the tlrst point of importance
attacked. It was shelled und deslroycd on
Sunday. The same fate was shared by
several conspicuous marine residences in the
vale of Clyde. Adrossun was the next vis
ited and roughly hundied.
On the east coast matters were still worse.
On Tuesday morning Aberdeen was bom
barded by four lines of battle ships belong
ing to Admiral Fit/roy's squadron.
Proceeding south the hostile licet sailed up
the Firth of Forth to Forth bridge , which
they are considered technically to have do-
strnycd. They then put about and steamed
down St. George's channel nt a rapid rate.
Tynemouth and Sundorland wore the next
objects of attention by the hostile fleet , but
the foe appeared. Scarborough was then
shelled and laid iu aahcs. Tlio fast cruiser ,
Hand Fly , careering around Quconstown ,
captured two Cunurdcrs and an Inman ,
greatly to the astonishment of thu third-class
On Thursday Liverpool was bombarded
and only baved by paying 1,000,000 ransom.
Meanwhile Admiral Baird und Admiral
Rowley effected a junction to pursue the es
caped squadrons , and finally cnmo up with
them in time to prevent the supreme catas
trophe the capture of London.
So far it has been proven that , once nt
large , an enemy's cruisers , judiciously
handled , can fill the whole coast line with
alarm and inllict at certain points enormous
damage ami destruction to mercan
tile shipping. A catalogue of
the places which have been
shelled , bombarded , laid in ashes , or laid
under contribution , would bo well calculated.

exceedingly instructive. So lar , at any rate ,
the defending British fleets have been corn-
