LOXUOH , Mny 25. [ Now York Herald
Cable Special to TUB BEE. | Though for
the moment n trifling kind of dullness
rclnns in parliament , I am Inclined to think
It will not last very muuh longer. For ono
thing , n storm Is being conjured up by the
arts ot the grand old parliamentary wizard.
When every bouy thinks ho Is done for nt
last , ho has the habit , as a lady told him , of
popping up again.
What are yon to do with n man who pops
UP , oven nfter cnba liavo knocked him down ?
That Is merely one of the hundred little
contretemps of dally llfo of which Mr. Glad
stone takes no hoed. To bo nuro It does not
often happen ; but when It docs. Mr. Gladstone.
picks himself up as ho did Tuesday , in Pic
cadilly , nnd runs after the cabman , takes his
number , and leaves him in the hands of the
police. How mnny men nro there In their
eightieth year , who would bo disposed to
finish off jobs of this sort in so thorough nnd
artistic n manner ! Most people , finding
themselves in the middle of the road , wron.g
sldo uppermost , would bo quite satisfied to
scramble to their legi ami walk quietly homo
and Inke nn hour or two to repair dnmagcs.
But Mr. Gladstone never gives In. His en
gagements , any day In the week , would tire
out most young follows of two-and-twenty
without the cub part of the business thrown
In as an extra.
Now what Is ho going to do to keep him
self well to the front In public lifol
Tncro are several things on the cards ,
among thorn two especially interesting. The
first t elates to the withdrawal of the English
ambassador ut Paris ut the opening of the
great exhibition. Thismavbo brought before -
fore the house , In connection with the for-
< ; igu o ill co budget , which has yet a stage to
pass through , and which has been kept back
A most unusual tlmo by the government , in
order to avoid a discussion of this rather
To postpone what you do not like and cannot
prevent is the motto of every government.
A inil-ton who is going to bring on an ugly
subject mny change his mind or go abroad ,
or the public may lese nil interest in it , but
nonb of these things is llkoly to occur in con
nection with tlio retirement of Lord Lyton
from Paris. Mr. Gladstone is in full chase
after n cabby , and ho will never rest until ho
has bnulcd him and his chief , Lord Salis
bury , before the parliament and the people.
Whit view is the public taking of this
As on every thing else , opinions are di
vided. A good mnny people think that it is
a rather mean and small thing for ono nation
to officially boycott another because certain
events happened n hundred years ago , of
which everybody does not happen to approve.
Not onu visitor out of ton thousand associ
ates the Parts exhibition In any way with
the French revolution ; they merely see In it
ono of the most Interesting nnd instructive
collections , Illustrative of the world's pro
gress , which linn over boon brought together.
Would It not have been better to have
allowed Lord Lyton to have remained at his
post , Ignoring the revolution nnd seeing nil
thnt Is interesting in the exhibition , in com-
'mon withtho rest of the world !
After nil , the French people and the
French govcinmcnt havo'not said n great
deal about the revolution , or sought to mag
nify It overmuch. But lor the fuss made by
the withdrawal of so mnny European am
bassadors , the connection between the two
events , slight nnd imaginary as it is , would
have Uecn completely forgotten. If England
was Induced to retire fiom France because
of tbo pressure of Prince Bismarck , it will
not tend to increase the satisfaction of the
public at what h icourreJ.
These are points on which , no doubt , Mr.
Gladstone-will seek Information , and It will
require nn able nnd more discreet mnn than
the undcr-sccrctnry for foreign affairs , Sir
James FcVguson , to parry bis attack. This
particular olllclnl is only known for the facil
ity with which ho loses his temper nnd makes
a moss of his business ; and , therefore , it
will bo very desirable to have Lord Salisbury
himself in the house for nn hour or so , to re
ply to Mr , Gladstone. As that can not bo
mnncgod , AJr. Gladstone Is very likely to run
the government rather close on tlua occa-
elon.Thcro Is , I think , n storm coming up in
another part of the heavens. I called your
attention to the fact that the Irish party
seemed to bo fizzling out. It may have struck
Bothers navell as myself , or at , nny rule there
It something in the air which I do not profess
to bo nblo to Interpret , but which ie llkoly to
Clvoriso to noteworthy events. I believe
that n movement of a totally now kind is
being pr'jjeuti'd , und that it will tnko the gov
ernment by surprise. The Nationalist leaders
may well bo excused'for feeling that if what
they nro doing now the tnunt of the Times ,
that their cause U bad they will bo justified
r tii.u.o eyes of the people.
I not Mr. Parnolly pretty clearly Indl
cKthe other day , thut bis tactics were
about to take u different direction.
Ho talked , Itjdccd , of retiring with hid fol
lowers from the parliament at Westminster ,
That would bo about the worst thing ho und
they could do. By tbo'eovornment , on the
other bund , It Is naturally regarded as a con
summation devoutly to bo wished. It might
bo nioio dlflicult for tbo Paruollltes to get
back again tbnn for them to go out.
Suppose n tncuEUro for the dlsfranchUe-
ment of Ireland wcro to bo brought forward
after tliohM-ctli cmont In a solid body I
6on o people iir ( > vpry much in favor of a
ichomo of thut klna , and in the absence of
the1 eighty-six li Ish members It could bo
passed. These contingencies and others ,
which 1 will not now specify , will have to bo
kept In view , II Mr. Pnrnell was in earnest

Cable Special to TUB Bui.l The Valkyrie
von again to-day , In the Now Thames Yacht
31ub channel match , from Southond to
larwich. She neat the Irox by over Sff
minutes nctunl time , nnd by 33 minutes nnd
1 seconds corrected time , addlng'hcr handi
cap of 0 minutes and CO seconds.
The race , however , was not an oxclttng
ono , bolng n mixture of very light breezes
and semi-dead calms throughout. It proved
ono thing , however , and that is that the
Valkyrlo can outdistance nny yacht of her
class afloat. Some say that In n light wind
nnd on some occasions , to-day for example ,
uck strongly favors her. At the start the
rex made n slight lead and got away ahead
of her competitor the snme as yesterday , but
, ho Valkyrie quickly pulled up on her , and
> ho match was pretty nearly n proccsslou all
, ho rest of the way.
The race was for yuehts of nny rig for a
Irst prlzo of 50 , and a second prize of 50 if
four stnrt , nnd a third pi bo of 20 if six
start. The ontrlei were the Mohawk , Vredn ,
Ynrann , Dls , Deerhound , Foxhound , Valky
rie , Irox , and Amphitrito.
The gun sounded for the stnrt at 8:45 : n. m. ,
nnd under a fresh brcczo from the landward
.ho . entire flotilla moved gracefully forward ,
n what for : i moment seemed an cv6n lino.
rho Irex and Vnlkyrlo were slightly ahead ,
and In a minute or two James' cutter could
be plainly scon outdistancing Lord Dunra-
ven's ' champion. Behind them came tbo
' .lohawlc and the Uccrhound ; the schooner
Amphitrito followed , and close behind her
sailed the Vredn and the diminutive Dis.
The boats maintained the same order for n
while , In fact nil of them did so for a long
while , jjavo the Mohawk and the Deerhound ,
which [ started oil together on a luffing
match loward Sheerness , which mnncauvor ,
.hough it subsequently gave them a little
more wind , was of no perceptible- advantage
to either ot them.
By the tune the Mouse light was reached
a flat calm had fallen over the water , and
, ho white sails flapped in struggling help-
cssness for a little time , until a more ghost
of a breeze came up , nnd fanned them slowly
onward. Meanwhile the Valkyrie had pulled
up on the Irox and was steadily increasing
icr lead over her big opponent , while the
Yarana was just maintaining her position
03 third. The Deerhound next overtook the
schooner Amphitrito , nnd remained ahead of
icr during the remainder of the race , the
Vreda , Mohawk , Foxhound und Dls reinain-
nc solidly in the rear.
Coming round the buoy" before the Cark
lightship the wind failed again , but quickly
veered round and took the crafts ahead.
rtio Valkyrie , in her position as loader ,
caught the breeze almost fifteen minutes
jofore her opponents , and taking down her
Ib tousall tacked and fetched around
.he buoy and lightship. The others crawled
up slowly until they too caught the breeze
.hat had sent Lord Dunraven's yacht so far
ahead of them , but were altogether too late
to have prevented her victory , were she oven
not half so fleet a racer as she is. Away she
sailed leaving her other competitors far in
tier wake , and passed the buoy outside the
pier at Harwich nearly half an hour before
any of the rest.
The gun was fired at 0 hours. 14 minutes ,
10 seconds. The Irox came in in 0:40:37. : :
The ofilcial tlmo of the foremost quartette
was , the Valkyrlo , first prlzo. 0:14:19 : : ; Inox
second prize , 0:40:37 : : ; Ynrann , disqualified ,
nil ; the Deci hound. 7:15:41 : ; thn Amphttrlto ,
7:18:43. : The handicap was , Irev , nil ; Val
kyrie ; 5 minutes , 65 seconds , and
the Deerhound , 23 minutes , 2,3 seconds ; the
Amphltr c , 4 minutes seconds ; the Yarnna
would have secured third plnco save for the
fact that she passed on" the wrong side of the
buoy. Some ono in the judge's boat en
deavored to signal to bar the mistake in time
to avoid the consequences , but was promptly
prevented from effecting his purpose by the
judges , but the race in itself confirms one *
thing , that scarcely needed continuation , to
wit , thn Valkyrlo Is a bettor boat than tbo
Yarana or the Irox.
Down among the yachting mon , to-day , it
was the freely expressed opinion that the

against tbo Volunteer , save by the purest
luck. The circustanccs being similar for

Mny 25. [ Now York Herald
Cable Special to Tnc Bic.l The drond of
being dissected , or burled while In n state of
trance , has occurred to every thinking human
boinp at least once during his or her life
time. The idea , of Itself , is such n hideous
cno thnt it is seldom spolcoti of to another
being. It is Included umong those fancies ,
which hover nround the fevoiish bed of
sleeplessness In the silent watches of the
night nnd flee llko an evil spirit nt the approach
preach of dawn.
No living rann has dissected as many hu
man beings or inferior animals ns Prof.
Rudolf Virchow , of the University of Ber
lin. The case of Washington Irving BIf&op
is ono of such vital interest to the whole
human race that the Herald correspondent
did not hesitate to break in upon
the labors of the great scientist to
ask him , In the interest of humanity , for nn
opinion coucernlng Bishop's caso. When I
stated It to him , tlio Professor paused for n
moment nnd then with that modesty and re
serve In stating his views , common to nil
those whoso knowledge is really profound ,
ho quietly said :
"It is somewhat difficult to give a positive
opinion concerning such cases , unless ono is
in possession of all the facts bearing on thorn ;
but 1 have no hesitation In saying that the
fact of the brain having boon warm nt the
time of its removal is no proof at all that
Bishop was allvo at the tlmo the post mortem
examination of his body wns mndo. "
"After death the Internal organs fre
quently remain warm for a long tlmo after
the surface of the body has become cold , and
there are certain maladies , mainly of the
nervous system , wherein not only is the
temperature- the brain Is not diminished
after death but actually undergoes nn in
crease. Thia has boon proved beyond the
sllghtcstdoubt by a numbsr of experiments
mudo on man and on the inferior animals.
"In the whole course of my long experience
as an anatomist , I have never known or heard
of a case of n man being dissected 'alive , ex
cept in ono instance , nnd that Is a matter of
history , although the evidence m it is > imper
fect. That was the case of Vasel , or
Vnselius , the great anatomist of the Six
teenth century. He revolutionized in break
ing loose from the traditions handed down *
from the time of Galon. It Is said that ho
lived in concealment somewhere in Spain
during the last ton years of his. life , after
having filled a prominent part at th o court as
well as in science , for ho was the body sur
geon of Charles V. 1 ho reason alleged for
his retirement from the world is that ho in
advertently anatomized the body of a man
who was alive at the time. This , ns 1 say , is
the only case of the kind I have ever hoard
of , until you mentioned Mr. Bishop's , and it
is very far from being sustained.
" 1 have heard of many cases whore per
sons are alleged to have been burned while
in a state of trance , but , sir , in no case thor
oughly investigated was this proven.
' Even if it bo admitted that Bishop was
alive at the time his brain was removed , the
allegation that ho was conscious of what was
being done to him then is absurd : Conscious
ness is a function of tbo brain , the result of
its activity. In order that this activity may
continue , it is necessary to renew a supply
of oxycon to tha brain , which can only bo
supplied by means of the blood , and the sup
ply of oxygen to the blood can only bo main
tained ns long as respiration Is continued. If
the circulation of the blood and respiration
both cease , the brain is necessarily deprived
of the oxygen necessary to the activity ,
which alone produces consciousness. In that
case decomposition would soon set In , as the
brain belongs to that portion of the body that
most quickly decomposes.
"Our only means of knowing whether life
still exists in the human body nro certain
action. Wo have no other moans. Thcro is
often no positive proof that llfo Is extinct ;
and , on the other hand , there is no proof to
show It to bo still remaining. If respiration
and circulation are discontinued they never ,
for the reason above stated , return. The
signs that show their presence may bo so
slight ns to escape the closest observation ,
but they are there. Breathing still con
tinues , although so faintly as not to affect a
mote In air near the mouth.
The best tests as to whcthnr life is departed -
parted or not are the most powerful excit
ants , a galvanic battery , for instance , ono
polo of which should bo attached to the dla-
phram , the most powerful inusolo of respira
tion , uuuTtuo other to the medulla oblongata ,
which controls the nerves descending from
tbo bond to the neck and Is the vital citadel
of the body , the center ol respiration and

King Humbert's projected visit to Stras
bourg was countermanded after the Italian
embassy received the telegrams from Paris
reporting : the disturbance in the public mind.
The arrangements nt Strasbourg included n
review of the garrison nnd a night attack on'

ferred the matter to Bismarck , it was an
nounced that King Humbert would not visit
Strasbourg , but would keen on the Baden

The revision of the treaty acrcod upon dur
ing the king's visit has not yet received the
the adhesion of Austria. Associated with
the treaty is the military convention 11 xhie
a definite plan for the mobilization of the
Italian army in the event of war. Signer
Crispi wanted the cntlente cordlalo on the
question of the papacy. Pnnco Bismarck
obtained from Signer Crispi a pledge for n
moderate internal policy toward the Vatican ,
nnd has asked the Austrian pnmo minister
to join In the pressure on the pope to mnko
peace with Qulnnal. It is understood Em
peror Francis Joseph reluctantly al
lowed Count Kolnoky to intervene In
the matter , and that the pope on receiving
private assurances of the Austrian om-
poror's sympathy , promptly rejected the
overturns. The result is a distinct broach
in the continuity of the alliance. The re
vised treaty will probably remain unsigned
until emperor Francis. Joseph and Count
Knlnoky pay their expected visit hero.

Cable Special to THE BKB. ] The bnnklni ?
account of Captain Murrell , commander of
the Missouri , who , on the morning of April0 ,
rescued 733 emigrants from the sinking Dan-
mark in mid-Atlantic , under circumstances
of great peril and Immense personal and
commercial risk , must to-day present n much
tnoro healthy appearance than It did two
months ngo. His heroic net has been recog
nized in thrco countries In n princely man
ner , nnd presents In gold nnd klnd.jind titular
honors have boon lavished upon film. The
city of London was , yesterday afternoon ,
enthusiastic In his honor , whilst boquots nnd
testimonials nwalt him In the cities of Col
chester nnd Cardiff , nnd there is n strong
probability that the freedom of London will
bo presented to him.
His reception In London eclipsed nil pre
vious festivities In his honor. The scene In
side wns nn unusuilly brilliant ono , nnd
when Captain Murroll entered , In company
with the lord mayor , the band struck up ,
"See the Conquering Hero Comes. " At the
same time the cntlru nndlcnco rose en masse
and shouted nnd hurrahed until the civic
walls runtr , which completely drowned the
music. Men waved hats and woman flour
ished umbrellas nnd handkerchiefs , nud it
wns some minutes before silence- was re
stored. All this tlmo Captain Murroll
stood blushing nud bowing , and the lord
mayor encouraged n prolongation of the ova
tion by leading it.
A mlnuto later the applause wns resumed
when the officers of the Missouri joined Iholr
chief on the platform. The speeches were
of n most laudatory character nnd replete In
references to the nobility of native Brit
ish , the pluclc nnd great humanity of the
heroic captain , and every such reference
brought the people to their feet with storms
The proceedings commenced by the lord
mayor calling uuon the band to
play "Hearts of Onk. " W. Connolly
nelly , secretary of the testimonial com
mittee , described Cnptnln Murroll's '
reception In America nnd the organizing of n
fund to fete him in England. There has
been 10,150 paid or promised , and the list
was still open. Mr. Connolly said It had
been decided to give oicn member of the
craw two months' pay nud cnch ofllcor a gold
watch nnd two months' pay , nnd the bal
ance , which It was hoped would roach 500 ,
to the captain himself. In spite of nil the
honors that are being heaped upon him , the
captain remained an honest , simple-hearted
Englishman. Ho concluded his enumeration
of the honors , past nud prospective , arranged
for Captain Murroll , by announcing that
when that oWccr returned to the United
Suites ho wns to bo presented to the presi
dent nt Washington.
After a speech from the lord mayor , In
which ho paid a high tribute to tbo captain ,
officers and crow of the Missouri , ho pre
sented Captain Murrell with a silver salver
and the officers with a gold medal and u check
for two months' salary.
When Captain Murrell rose to respond , the
whole audience rose at the stimo tlmo and
cheered vociferously for several minutes. Ho
said it was with n very high sense of grati
tude that bo and his crow wcro present and
ho thanked the meeting for the cordial
rcccutiou that had been accorded
them. The gratitude of tbo people
they wcro the means of saving
was sufficient lor him and his
crow without any further recompense. Ho
spoke of the responsibility ho felt when
throwing over the cargo , but sntd ho con
cluded that merchandise was nothing when
compared to human life , a sentiment that was
The Danish minister , M. Do Folbo , ex
tended the gratitude of his countrymen ,

to Captain Murroll nnd his bravo crow.
General New , the American consul , added
words of welcome nnd the lord mayor ex
plained that the American minister would bo
present , but until ho was presented to the
queen ho had no official status. General New
said the appreciation of true beioism
was common to the people of all climes , and
especially to the people of old England ,
America , und , perhaps , in no less a degree ,
the people of Denmark. Coptam Murrcll's
would stand out conspicuous ns a great effort
of true seamanship nnd gallantry.

Cable Special to Tim Buu.J About noon ,
yesterday , a shock was felt throughout the
bourse on the receipt of mi agency telegram
announcing that the king of Italy and tha
Gorman emperor would travel to Strasburg
together , and that a grand review of the
gan Inon would bo hold there In the presence
of the allied inouarchs. It was pointed out ,
by interested stock jobbers , that such nil
action on the pirt of the Italian mon.irch
could moan nothing loss than absolute provo
cation to war. A downward movement In
French and Italian rentes was the immedi
ate result of the reports , although it became
pretty evident , bofoio closing tlrno.thatthcro
was no truth In the rumor. The stock
affected finished at a considerable re
duction fiom yesterday's ' rates. A dispatch
was circulated in Paris containing the sensa
tional item referred to , but o.irly In the af
ternoon the Temps throw cold water on the
story , which was subsequently denied In tote
by a telegram from Strasburg stating that
the emperor would visit the Alsatian capital ,
but that ho would not bo accompanied by the
king of Italy.
The version given above gives the true his.
