The increase in the amount on ocean passage was larger than expected, but cables were not partiutlarly •weak and the weather in the spring wheat section was cold and stormy. AIHO Micro, have been some complaints from Kansas, that wheat was shown considerable deterioration over portions of that state this month. Clearances were, light but new engage- : moots show a marked increase since the break, and late cables speak of an improved demand across the water.

April 12.-—The Vir' ginin supreme court of appeals yesterday heard tlie arguments of the counsel in a case involving tlie allegation that an option had been given on a lot in which is tho grave of the mother of (leorge Washington, The records show that on I'Y.bruary 2Stii, 188(1. defendant Sheperd gave Kirtley A- Kolbert, a real estate firm, of Fredericksburg, an option for the pnrelinsc of a lot which was 92 ,500, and included a monument i which had been contributed to by a! New York man, hut was never completed. The real estate llrm claim, and the records bear it out, that they found a purchaser for 520,000 in t». IT. Huntingdon of ISaltiinore. Tlie property was advertised in various parts of the country and attracted much attention. The result was that the people of Fredericksburg held a meeting at which resolutions disapproving the proposed sate of the sacred spot were adopted. Sheperd refused to accept the 820,000 and make a deed of the lot. The result was a damage suit instituted by the real estate llrm. The decision was against the plaintiffs, the court holding that the spot containing the grave of the mother of Washington could not be a subject of sale. This opinion will, it is believed, he substantially approved by the supreme Court. This tribunal intimated so much yesterday in refusing to hear the long urguinouts of the plaintiff's counsel.

PlriOiugs lu Brooklyn. NKW YoitK, April 12.— -The existence of a band of ilrebugs and anarchists in Brooklyn was discovered to-day. Two men are in jail. One of the accomplices of the gang has made a full confession to the spocHlc charge on which he and his principal arc under arrest. Tho police and lire marshal are convinced that tlioy have at Inst caught the incendiaries who are responsible for most of tlie tenement house fires in Brooklyn since January 1st. The confessions of the accomplice describes lu detail the methods employed by tho firebugs iu sotting fire to dwellings and other buildings.. This description shows that arson was the work of men who not only were familiar with strange combustibles, but intelligent enough to lay their plan with a degree of circumspection which long defied investigation. Tlioy would go to dwellers in the teuetnent houses who carried proportionately large insurance on thoir furniture and propose to burn the house or rooms of such persons and take a percentage of tho insurance money in payment for their work. Two llUtluut Shoelts. Al .nANV, N. Y., April 13 —Two distinct shocks of earthquake were felt throughout Montgomery, Warren and Otsego counties this morning. Tho first occurred at 11:28 o'clock and lasted thirty seconds. The second occurred two minutes later. In Johnstown and Cloversvlllo people rushed wildly from the houses thoroughly frightened. The ruttlitig «f dishes, fulling of plaster, rumbling of buildings and vibrating of lamps appear to be the only result. Alor|[»irn Kosoliitloii. WASHING/CON , April 12.—The resolution offered yesterday by Morgan calling for information us to reciprocity with tlermaiiy and llaytl was .taken up and agreed to by the senate to-day. WASHIMITON . April 12.— Hon. Geo, 0. Gorhum, who is engaged on a biography of the late Secretary Stnnton.has written an open let ter to Senator Shermau In which he excepts to the following in the senator's late eulogy upon Oen. Sherman: " 'Gen-. Sherman believed in and •ought to carry out the policy of Abraham Lincoln. The terms of tho surrender were tentative and the conditions •were entirely subject to the supervision of the executive authorities but instead of being submitted to the generous and forgiving patriot who hud fallen they were passed upon in the shadow of a great crime by stern and relentless ene^ niics, who had not consented to tho condition:- imposed by (Jen. Grant and who would have disregarded them had not Gen. Grant threatened to resign upon the refusal to carry out his terms. " 'IVlicn the arrangement with Qen. Johnston was submitted to ['resident Johnson and .Mr. Stanton, it was rejected with the insulting intimation that it proceeded from either cowardice or treachery. The old cry against Gcn- Sherimm was again started. It was even imputed that he would attempt to play the part of a Crowell or a military usurper. " 'The generous kindness of Grant came to his relief. New terms were agreed upon and the war closed.' Mr. Gorham says: "You would have it understood by this that while Gen. Sherman was engaged in a praiseworthy and purely military act. which President Lincoln would have desired him to perform had be lived, he was set upon and insulted and his arrangements set aside by President Johnson and Edwin Stanton, then secretary of war, in a mean and narrow spirit of revenge, because of the assassination of Mr. Lincoln and that at this juncture, the generous kindness of Gen. Grant interposed between him and these alleged enemies and that the two generals agreed on new terms and ended tho war. You state all this as though you had approved Oen, .Sherman 's course." After quoting from many letters and showing the error of Gen. Sherman 's position the letter closed with the following: "In conclusion allow me to quote one more authority in support of Mr. Stanton's view and in condemnation of Gen. Sherman's fearful mistake. The authority will not be seriously questioned by yon. It reads as follows: BENATO.lt: SJIIili.MA.V'S LKTTRH. "'Mr PK.UI Sin:— I am distressed 1 beyond measure at the terms granted Johnston fiy Gen. Sherman. They are inadmissible. There should now be literally no terms granted. We should not only brand the leading rebels with infamy, but the whole rebellion should wear the badge of the penitentiary; for this generation; at least, no man who has taken part in the war dare justify or palliate it. "Yet with these views I foci that | gross injustice ha,s been done Gen. Sherman, especially by the press. The most that can be said about him is that he granted the rebels too liberal terms. The same may be said, but in a less degree of Mr. Lincoln and Gen. Grant In their arrangement with Lee. Gen. Sherman had not understood the. political bearing of that agreement. It is his misfortune that he believed the promises of these men, and looks upon tho whole contest in asiinple military view. He thought the disbanding of their armies is the end of the war, while we knew to arm them with the. elective franchise and state organizations is to renew the war. "I feel so troubled at this matter, following so closely on the death of Mr. Lincoln, that I was inclined to drop everything and go to Raleigh, but I promised to join the funeral cortege here and on Saturday week have agreed to deliver a eulogy in honor of Mr. Lincoln at Munsflold. This over, 1 will gladly go to Washington or anywhere else, whero I shall do the least service. "I do not wish Gen. Sherman to be unjustly dealt with, and I know that yon will not permit jt. Kspecially I do not want him driven into fellowship with the copperheads. His military services have been too valuable to the country to be stained by any such fellowship. If you can. in your multiplied engagements, drop me a line pray do so. You can If you choose show this to the president, or indeed to anyone. Very . truly yours, JOHN SUBKMAN." " 'lion. Edwin 1^. StanUm.' "I cannot find in this letter any reference to the insult with which you now assert that Gen. Sherman 's terms were rejected by President Johnson and Mr. Stanton, but I do find in it an assurance from you to Secretary Stanton that you knew he would not permit Gen. Sherman lobe unjustly dealt with. "You could not have said this had yon thought Mr. Stanton himself had already dealt unjustly by him, by publishing the reasons above quoted, and which had been iu print in every leading newspaper of the count ry for four duys before you wrote your letter. I honored andadmircd Gen. Sherman. I knew him personally and enjoyod the honor of his friendship. "Hut 1 also honored mid admired Mr. Stautou, whose biography I have undertaken and whoso private papers are in my keeping; und 1 cannot remain silent when one of the greatest and wisest of his official acts are brought forward, misstated and perverted iu a useless effort to show that Geu. Sherman waa right when he himsolf udmitted (with the concurrence of Senator Sherman) that ho was wrong. • Very truly yours, UsoauK C. GOMUM." POWDER Absolutely Pure.

"Good." replied Professor KtinstlGr, looking amiably at tho lad over his spectacles; "I thank you: you may be seated!"—Argonaut. WASHIXHTD.V April 12.—Considerable interest is felt as to the probable course of the senate committee on foreign relations in the house Chinese total exclusion bill, which was referred to that committee on- Wednesday. No action was taken on the bll I by the committee that day. which is the regular meeting day. Strong efforts will, be made by the Pacific coast senators, through Mr. flolph, who is a member of the committee, to force a favorable report on Wednesday iir\t. railing in that, an attempt will probably be made to release I the committee from further considera- | lion of the bill and to pass it through the senate by n hurrah vote. I The Scott exclusion bill of 1888 was i passed by both house and senate with| out reference to the committee on foreign affairs in either body. Of the present members of the foreign ref lations committee of the senate, Mr. Sherman, the chairman, refused to vote one way or the other on the Scott ex- elusion act. Mr. Fryc, of Maine, was announced as generally paired with Gorman, of Maryland; Dolph, of Oregon; Davis, of Minnesota; Hiscook, of New York: Morgan, of Alabama, and Gray, of Delaware, voted in favor of the bill, and Butler, of South Carolina, and Keuna, of West Virginia, were announced as . generally paired with republican senators, so their views were not definitely ascertained. The only three votes east in the senate at that time against the bill came from Hoar, of Massachusetts; Brown,of Georgia; and Wilson of Iowa. But a point strongly urged in the pre- I vious discussion was that China had ' substantially agreed to a treaty covering the stipulations contained in tht> bill, and only withheld its ratilication of the treaty because, of some verbal amendments inserted by the senate. The present measure is much more drastic, and has no such quasi treaty backing as had the Scott bill. During its passage through the house it was assailed by Hooker (democrat), from Mississippi, and Hitt (republican), from Illinois, both members of the foreign affairs committee, as a violation of national faith. In the. previous debute on the Scott bill Mr. Sherman said: "No one doubted the power of congress to make a law for the public, safety even in violation of a treaty.*' This proposition was, however, advanced by him with sundry qualifications, which may possibly be held to exclude the pending measure from the operation of that principle. A Chinese exclusion discussion in the senate is therefore not entirely outside the possibilities of the week. l'HOTEST AGAINST TUB ' EXCLUSION MIX. BOSTON ", April 11.—The New England conference of the M. E. church has adopted a resolution appealing to the United States senate to vote against the pending immigration bill as a plain violation of the sacred treaties made between China and America, and unjust in itself and antagonistic to the traditions and principles of the United States.
