TIEXXA. Oct. 30. The German Emperor ended hii visit to the Eaperor of Austria to - day, learicR euherj: at half - pat 11, and roachinjc Mnmachlag at half - ... patt 12. There the two Enperors and the King of Saxony lunched, after which there w a . cordial" parting, and the German Emperor took train fwluly, while the Emperor ci Austria, the Kinj of Saxony, rfinee Leopold cf Bararia, and the Grand Duke of Tuscany returned to Schonbrunn. The Imperial party was to have pone out shootin? this morning, hut' the bad weather prevented the attempt. Yesterday the dewrpour of raip completely spoiled eport, and the German Emperor did not pet "a single shot. Xbthinj: has been wanting - on the part of tho Aastriin Court to. male the German Emperor's visit enjoyable. Few Sovereigns understand the niceties of hospitality so well as the Emperor Francis Joseph, whose) frank kindness and politeness keep him ever attentive to the laallest details which can minister' to the' comfort and .pleasure of his guests. It must be ldded that His Majesty has in Prince Hohenlohe a Grand Mister cf the Household who has brought the amngemetts for entertaining diitizguished visitors and also the onlering;of Cocrt ceremonies to the highest point of perfco - tion. Fnder his watchful eye everything works so corthly that onlookers have to reflect a little before perceiving how much thought and careful preparation are required to produce tuch un varying punctuality and good order. Whether the Emperor William authorired the rress to say that he was delighted with his t i'X, and with the enthusiastic welcome given hia by the Austrian people' may, however, he . doubted. It stands to reason that the Empercr was pleased with his visit, lut enthusiasm is a Urge Tprd to apply to a welcome in which public excitement was always kept well under control. TleEatperor willdoultleM pet a very enthusiastic recsptkn in Italy, but there the case is different. A&siiia - llungary gives as much as she takes in the alliance with Germany, and the general desire among those who do not gush about this alliance for party purposes is that Austria - Hatgary's equality of position should I more eiedidly recognized than it sometimes has heen Berlin. In Italy there is probably net a man bat fjeh that his country embarked on a great idrestore when it abandoned the policv of neutrality in order to, tike its stand as a Great Puwer betide Germany and Austria - Hungary. The step was, no doubt a wise one, lut, like all momentous decisions, it carries anxieties with it. and the German Emperor's visit will be acclaimed as putting an end for a time to these inxieties and causing a general mood of hbpe - (ulnesa to prevail. .

VIENNA, Oct. 10. The Folitieal Corrttpotdsnet publishes a tele gram from Helgrmde, which expresses innooenl wonder that Austria - Hungary should ever have been suspected of favouring tho Servian pro pa - panda in Macedonia, and in another column a letter frpm lielgrade, which viciously abuses the Itulgarians for denying the Servian claims to part of the (Turkish provinces.

The Republicans .re making strong efforts to defeat Mr. Spt - akci Carlisle in tho Sixth Kentucky District. They hi ve nominated Mr. Robert Hamilton, .the leading Kentucky tobacco manufacturer, who will bo supported by the Labour party. M. CLEMENCEAU. PARIS, Oct. 10. A sniumary of M. Clemenceau's speeches at Toulon has been received here. Referring to a forthcoi ring by - elcction he said that the Reactionary s were preparing to attack the Republic. Formerly called Conservatives, they how sty kd themse ves Boulangists, and some sincere but deceive ! Republicans followed tho banner of Boulan ;ism. The Republicans must thwart their oppone its by union and conciliation. He was not ast mished that the first idea of tho chairman was to isk him if the Boulangist danger existed. Ho bin self believed that tho Republic ran a real risk, bi t, jn his opinion, it would triumph without di culty ever the ' Boulangist intrigues, not by talcing violent measures' against General Boular ;6t snd his supporters, but by means of the un cn of Rcpublicans,and by giving the people tho te orms which they had so long expected, and - w lieh they could not obtain by rallying to Gencn 1 Boulanger. There were many taxes which fell heavily on tho poor and which the wealth might le made to bear the burden of. If the peasant saw the taxes diminishing, he would say that the present Government was the best o all possible Governments. There were beside i. cither satisfactions to be given to the. people among others the weeding - put of the official list ; for it was a disgrace that the present Govrn mcnt should preservo Clerical functionaries at the head of many departments, before whom citizets did not venture to express their sentiments with freedom. j . Rep ying to the question if hej would vote for Re - visicn as proposed by M. Floquet, M. Clemcnceau slid h i would vcte for it, because he did not want tuover urn a Ministry which was the most Radical of those that had yet existed. Ho had the moet nmplete confidence in the members of tho preset t Cabinet, which alone could j give the lladjcj .Is tho satisfaction that! they required. To overti rn it would be to play tho game of Ferry, the T. nJUtvoM, and of Boulanger. As to foreign affair! , tranquillity and coolness would always socurd tor franco tne sympamies oi ioreign Powers . v This summary is obviously ot criticism. lM. Clemenceau of a section of the advanced party, and though his army is not numerically considerable ho can often turn the scale in the Chamber over, Ian excellent debater, ilrr - iulM bv Cabinets, and his sincere Kermbli i is bevond challenge. Ho believes tirmlv in tljo Itepublic, and shrinks from no effort to upholH it agaipst all assailints If, therefore, M. CKmencsau says things which are prejudicial to th Republic, he can only be deceiving himself. His good faith and good intentions cannot be impufened. Kor this reason, when the telegraph attributes to him stupid ana aangerous rcmatks, platitudes, childish ideas, and exprce - sionssof alarm which admirably serve the purpose too meagre to allow is still the leader He is, more - his attacks are of the enemies of the Republic, fairness and justi o require tho production of tho exact and authentic words that he ijsod. Thty require that I he should not be hastily condemned tn' words perhaps quite incorrectly attributed to him It I is imrjossible that M. Clemenecau could have said that jGeneral Boulanger makis tho itepuDiio run a real uanger. ue might be reproached with! having "created" General Boulanger, with having defended and supported him, and with having imposed him on the hepublican party ; and a man in his position stands self - condemned when he asserts that one whom he defended against all, and was ready to maki his auxiliary, is niw a danger to the Republic. M. Cllmenceau could not excuse himself by saying that he had been deceived by his fprottyj, because those who aspire to govern the masses, and to cut parties in motion, must be considered quite unfit for the work after making V 1 2 ; . .L - ijl V.J 1 J 1 ucu mu sural salon mi uiat fcucj - v uwuuujpw by k man whose political foytune they had made. Again, when one holding ithe position of M. Clemenoeau declares that Ithe Republio run a real danger from Boulangism, he give great power to him who has to be fought. Accordingly, I do not believe that 31, CltSraenceaa ever tittered tho words put into his mouth. Neither can I believe that M. Cbmencoaa ever made tho stupid statement that the Republic would secure affection if It md tho rich pay the taxes hitherto borne by the p or: This is a childish Socialism which dates a bng way back. To ruin the rich by taxation and to encourage the idleness and covetousness of tho poor is condemned by all economists as producing universal indigence, and it is not the way to - nake a form of Government popular. AVo must all o wait to hear whet her M, Clemenecau specified the reforms which aro to win back affection for the Republic. If he merely spoke of reforms in the abst - act he evaded tho difficulty of the question. As f r weeding out functionaries, the operation has been going on for ten years; It is flinging a b Hie to hungry incapable, mt active enough t earn a liveli - hoial, and bent on feasting at the budget tabl whence it is difficult to oust ,them on their being found good for nothing. , M. Clemenceau's pledgo to support the Revision proposed by 31. Floquet , in order not to. overturn .tho Cabinet, is surprising, coming from such a man. M. Clemcnceau has for years been clamouring for Revision, ard must of ten - have reflectod on tha nature of that Revision. To tamper at this critical moment wijth the Constitution which i tho solo barrier against usurpations and adventures is too serious a business for M. Clemenecau to enter upon without having his programme all ready. The fall ot maintenance of a Cabinet is immaterial, compared with a Revision which may remodel tho whole political fabric. M. Clrfmenceau cannot blindly subscribe to M. Floquct's plan, thus, for the sako of propping up a Cabinet, giving up j tho fruit of his own prolonged meditations. If, moreover, M. Floquet proposes no Revision will JI. Clemenceau, for fear of overturning him, give'up what ho declares to bo imperatively necessary 1 We must evidently await the full report, fcjr if this summary were correct M. Clemenceau would hare fallen below his usual level, whi h it is not fair to assumo is the case. PRESIDES T CAIIN OTS TOUR. rims, Oct. 10. "hile at Annecy yesterday M.

THE AMERICAN CROPS. WASHINGTON', Oct. 10. The monthly! report of the 'Dcrartmcnt - of Agriculture issued to - dty statcs.with regard to the cotton crop, that heavy rains fell in the latter tart of August and continued throughout the greater part of September, causing sprouting of seed, in the bolls, and the rotting ot the lower and shedding of the top bolls anil foliage. Rains and wind interfered with picking, discoloured the fibre, and - leducedj the grade, but recently the weather has been more favourable and the quality has somewhat improved, teme correspondent report short staple. The everywhere late, ml slight frost threaten the early destruction of the plant. Killing frosts must, however, be expected later on, and the length of the season is therefore uncertain. The general average condition of the crop is 78i, against 83 8 in September. The State averages are as follows : Virginia, rO ; North Carolina, 81'; Sooth Carolina. 75 ; Georgia, 1 9 ; Florida, 83 ; Alabama, 82 : Mississippi, 81 ; Louisiana, 70 ; Texas, 75 ; Arkansas, 82 ; ami Tennessee, 91. Caterpillar and toll - worm have been present, except in the northern tier of States, and have wrought some damage. Paris green and London rurple have been used less effectively than usual, the heavy rains having washed them off. The preoentcondition of the corn crop has been equalled only three times during the past tea years. Th arerag condition is 9i, against 94 2 - 10 m September, The 'present indication faronrthe expectation of a crop of about 25 bushel t per acre, ths making the full average. The returns relative to beat are of the yield per acre , by counties, 'and, as consolidated, the general average of winter wheat is 12 bushel per acre, that of spring wheat being slightly over 10. Tha former has yielded better than the early expectation, but the latter much worse. This result is calculated in measured bushels. The quality is touch below the average, which will still further reduce the supply. AMERICAN 3IARKETS. NEW YORK, Oct. 10. Wheat orx - ned weak and somewhat excited, a nota tion being about 3c. lower.

In witness's opinion tbe deceased instead of turning off the gae turned it full on, an - i wa overcome by the fame before he was aware of it. The coroner having, commented upon the lack of safety jn such an apparatus, the jury returned a verdict of Accidental Death."

Why should such a thing a a female detective be unheard of ia the land t A clever woman of unobtruaiv dress and appearance (she need not be 5ft. 7in.) would possess over masculine rivals not a few, advantages. She would paa unsuspected where a man would be Instantly noticed ; she could extraeVvgosaip from ether women much more freely ; she would more through the street and courts without waking the echoes of the pavement by a sonorous military tread ; and, lastly, ah would be in a position te employ for whatsoever it may be worth that (if of Intuitive quickness and mother wit " with which her sex is commonly credited, Tour reader who may be familiar with tbe " History of the Crimean War " will remember the splendid chsptae - wberein Mr. King. Iak sets forth bow the masculine mhul of alt tha generals ami War Office dignitaries together failed te grapple with the problem ef the hospital, and how the feminine mind, impersonated in Mis Nightingale Keceipta, d her little band of nurses, came to the rescue and out ol chaos and indescribable misery brought order and relief. I it not worth trying; now in another public difficulty whether womanly faculties may not again be useful ? A keen - eyed woman might do' a well in her way a those keen - nosed bloodhound (ot whose official engagement I rejoice te hear) mays we hope, do in their peculiar line. Should it so fall out that the demon of Whitechapel prove, really to be, a Mr. Baxter seems to suspect, a physiologist delirious with cruelty, and should the hounds be the means of his capture, poeti justice will be complete.

Sir, Mr. Hoare shows that th Tenement Dwelling Company ia not .abla to deal - with house like those in the Whitechapel criminal quarter. He further doubts whether asy good ran result from the purchase of such. nouse if a fancy priee goes to the pre seat owimts and. tx tne local authority remains the same. May I say ia reply that there is no intention te give a fancy priee' or to eeaae from harassing; a - vO - doar. and that it ia chiefly by the introduction ef landlord wbo have a higher standard ef eider that the local authority win be moved" to action. During the last 18 years we have seen bow the neighbourhood ef this criminal euarter ha been disastrous to a thousand efforts made t reform toe lire of the ysung. Tne quarter 1 a uki' of crime. It is a pity te divert sympathy by bHacnjsing' methods of action which cannot fee Tnnj Tares action bemad public.
