The Tammany special train left Saratoga at 3 p. M. to-day, teaching the Grand Central depot at a -at. The baa. played "Home Agaia'aad the party separated."" Thegeaeral sentiment among the partisans of Tammany Hall was oae of satisfaction that they had been admitted ta the councils of the party on equal representation with the County Democracy. .Nor were they willing to admit that the Manning machine had achieved a victory at Saratoga. On the contrary, they declared that the,: proceedings of the convention showed-plainly that Governor Cleveland's ' friends were' afraid to make a test vote on tbe question of in i tructiog the delegation from this State to vote for him at Chicago. I The opinion was freely expressed by the shrewdest and most observing of the Tammany i leaders that it is the intention of those who were the loudest in their declarations f Oil Governor Cleveland at- Saratoga t throw mm overDoara at Chicago and endeavor cast the vote of New York; for Payne "Do you assert that the result .r , - tne convention is a victory lor u-overnoi Cleveland ?" John Kell v was asked. x ao not," ne repiwa. am not u anv means certain that the majority of til delegates to Chicago are in the interest of Governor Cleveland, although an earnest effort is being made by his friends to make-it appear so. Delegates are credited to him without any foundation in fact. Indeed, I am certain that in some districts delegates have been claimed for him whose preferences are for Bayard." 'I "Do yon accept the fact that no effort was made to instruct the delegates to vote for Cleveland as evidence of his weakness ?" . ) : "Unquestionably. Had they felt strong enough, such a resolution would have been presented by Governor Cleveland's friend, and an effort made to pass it for the effect it would have on, the other State delega-i lions." J if "Why did not Mr. Flower make a better showing?" ' j j, "I presume that can be explained by the fact that the opposition in the Convention was more anti-Cleveland than in favir of Flower. Still, Flower is stronger and has more friends in the delegation to Chicago than the!, figures printed have given him. Recollect that there was no actual test vote as between Cleveland, and Flower." j: There are all sorts of figures as to thi result of the straggle of factions at Sara toga. The Sum's correspondence gives to Cleveland, outside of this city and Brooklyn, thirty delegates, and to Flower fourteen. Bearing in mind the fact that the Kings county delegates go especially in the interest of Siocum as a candidate for the. Vice Presidency; that the Tammany Half delegate will go for Bayard, and that one of the - delegate3-at-large is Flower's friend, and 1 also political manager. the doubtful elements in the New JTork delegation .to Chicagj can read;ly be tcec, A gentleman, for whose means of inside information and wacity the Saratoga oxm-espindent of the Time vouches, says tbat it will be founctj aft?r the deiegat - ariive at :Chicr?o, that Cleveland hci t'lirty-one delegates who are really in favor of h:s nomination, that his opponents number thirty, and tbat eleven delegates will nrea that the icandidates he taken from outiide the Stated nine of them being for Bayard and two for a Western candidaO. i POLITICAL GOSSIP.

His expectation was that he could escape in the darkness, but the box was set down bottom side up, with the lid against the platform, and his scheme was frustrated. When he was rolled into the express office at the depot, still worse misfortunes ait-tended him, for the .box was so placed that be stood on his head. The clerk then began checking - up, using the box for a table. Buell stood it as long as he could andthen made his presence known," greatly frightened the agent, who was going to shoot into the box. At length, however, they released him. He paid the express charges, $9 25. A ticket would have cost $17 54. Franca in Collaqnlal Conversation . PU Mall Budget. The custom of iutrodncing French terms in colloquial conversation is by no means deejied bad taste; in fact, it is rather pschutt just now. That they are not always quite apropos does not. matter much, neither V it of importance whether they are correct to the letter. What can it matter whether we say coutt qui covfe instead of coiUe que coutt, or la. -Franca'ts for a la Franccdee? Such' thVg8 are hardly noticed among thjs French themselves. Frenchmen, htjwever, occasionally have a laugh at them, and now and then present the world with a choice selection of Anglicized idioms, warning at the same time their compat.iots to abstain from Gallecizing the language of the Saxons. A few English phrases are set up as dangerous to use in France for instance, 'fi ve o'clock's teas, " raou ts, " 'flirtage, " etc. Amusing as these sound to us, our attempts to use French phrases are not less so to our neighbors.

' The Gypsy Band is silent, peculiar and musical, and their exhibitions given last evening at the California Theater, will long be remembered by those, who love good music. There are just twelve in number and they all march out on tbe stage dress-en in pretty uniforms with' high topped boots aod their j violins in their hands. They are dark, swarthy-looking fallows, and from their continued silence from be ginning to- end it is auite Drobable that tbe are unable to speak English, but nevertheless the Creator has given these "big" Austnans a genius tbat ts wonderful, for their instruments sobbed and laughed at their will, and the leading musicians of the city showed their appreciation by repeated demonstrations. Farenz A. Jay, tbe lea der, is a powerful man. and as he stands there in front of tbe others with his placid face and bristling beard, no one could ever immagine that there was anything delicate, refined or musical in his soul, but he plays like an angel.
