A ifttUfftOtary Reply Received from ItlnUUr P«relr«— Mr. Blftlnfe Corrects Some Error* of Minuter Montt— The I Apology Officially Accepted. WASHINGTON, Jan. 2l».— The ] resident Ills sent the additional correspondence »pon Chilian questions to congress. The most important portion of tbe mes- cnge is contained in the f ollwing para- The response of Mr. Periera to our note of the 81st withdraws, with acceptable expressions of regret, the offensive note of Mr. Matta of the llth ult., and also the request for the recall of Mr. Bgan. The treatment of the incident of the assault upon the sailors of the Baltimore is so conciliatory and friendly that I am of the opinion that there is a good prospect that the differences growing owt of that serious affair, can now be adjusted upon terms satisfactory to this government, by the usual methods, and wiihont special powers from < mgress. Tnis turn in the affair is very . .ratifying to ms, as I am sure it will be to the congress and our people. The general support of the efforts of the executive to enforce the just right of the nation in this matter has given an instructive and visefnl illustration of the unity and patriotism of our people. PEREIRA'S ANSWER. The Chilian Forrisin Minister Blalcog an Apology. The correspondence mentioned by the president in his'message follows. First was Chili's answer to tho ixltiinatuin dated Jan. %Q, and received at the state department at 9 a. in. Jan. 26. It was transmitted by Egan and was a copy of Foreign Minister Pereira's answer to Secretary .Blame's ultimatum. After acknowledging the receipt of Mr. Bl.dae's note the foreign minister quotes the substance of the ultimatum and continues with the following language: YMthout any intention of opening a dis- cu; si on as to the facts referred to by the c-o.auiunication, which I have extracted, .and confining himself to the first parrot' the instructions of the honorable secretary oi state, the undersigned must state to your excellency the regret with which the government of Chili sees that his excellency, the president of the United States. finds reason to continue to regard the jii£i-' dent of Oct. 16 as an attack caused By' a' hostile feeling towards the uniform of-the navy of the United States. That unfortunate occurrence took place on a sudden, inc. district where the sailors of theves- se'- V iiig in the bay of Valparaiso are in the habit of assembling, without distinction of nationality. •• , From the nature of theincident it woiild be impossible to prove that there was «o doubt as to the special cause which served as its origin or pretext. But the undersigned can assert that that cause was not a hostile feeling towards the uniform oJ the navy of the United Stales, because the people of Chili have always Esteemed ami Respected That Uniform ever since tho time when it saw it figuring honorably in the ranks of Soldiers and sailors in -H great struggle which gave it independence and established the republic. The undersigned admits that the occurrence of ULT. ill was of greater gravity than li.ose which usually occur in the sa no district between the sailors which or afcltt Mcfttif? ft* state «nh* defcMtmillt ttf foreign filftttOttft of WMhingtttn, th« deaianatieft ef either the suptiitt* etftttt ol toadmM the Umted States, or ft trttdttftal of arbitration to determine tHi tepAffction which dfalll may have to make for fchat lamentable occurrence. AbioluUly Withdrawn Matta'* Nat*. As for the dispatch addressed under date of Dec. 11, to the Chilian minister in Washington by the minister of foreign relations of the provisional government, the undersigned submits that there could not be on the part of the government of Chili, the purpose to inflict any offense upon the government of the United States, with which it desires ever to cultivate the most friendly relations. Consequently the undersigned deplores that in the telegram there were employed through an error of judgment »the expressions which are offensive in the judgment of your government. Declaring in fullfllment of a high duty of courtesy and sincerity toward a friendly nation, that the government of Chili withdraws the said expressions. The undersigned trusts that this frank and explicit declaration which confirms that which had already been made to the honorrble secretary of state in Washington will carry to the mind of his excellency Mr. Harrison, ofhis government, that the people of Chili, far from entertaining a feeling of hostility, have the lively desire to maintain unalterably the good and cordial relations which up to the present time exist between the two countries—a declaration which is made without reservation in order that it may receive such publicity as your government may deem suitable. With regard to the suggestion made touching the change of personnel of your legation to which the instructions of the honorable secretary of state refer, it is incumbent upon the undersigned to declare that the government of Chili will take no positive step without the accord of the government of the United States, with which it desires to maintain its friendly understanding. The communication is closed with the assurance that the government of Chili cherishes the conviction that the relations with the government of the United States should be sincerely and cordially maintained. government th« brntal tettffa* 6* young men whe wWe slaifi fry brdsf 8t Balmwieda, When m th* $«<Olay 1 showed you tht dfstwtoh dv&trvlBgftii of theifictdentinsever* and <&$$& tetma, you acknowledged that y6u ,*ere mistaken.

In referring to the question you remark: "You were pleased to acknowledge that the government of Chili had a light to ask that a Change should be made." Undoubtedly she has that right, provided she assigns a reason. You are too well skilled in diplomatic Usage to be reminded that when a nation is pleased to declare that a minister is persona non grata she is expected to assign a reason therefor, I have thus frankly endeavored to correct some misapprehensions of yours in order that the record of the state department of the United States may be kept exact and in all its proceedings shall be consistent. Accept, sir, the renewed assurances of my highest consideration. (Signed) JAMES G. BLA1NE. ELAINE'S REPLY. REV. CHARLES H.

ELAINE'S ANSWER. fi .--.( t-<> i>, ii, • ••fi'it it, and the fact of -knowing that • denths have resulted from it among sixteen wounded men of the Balti.- e> u;is sufficed to give an extraorui- y ch rnctor and to induce the govern;•• u ol Ohili to hasten to adopt the meas- •e ••-aryto discover and punish the : i Ties, to offer in due time, it' there s;. . ..'. • ground for so doing, reparation as might be due. The preliminary examination was commenced an the morning which followed the night of the conflict some days before you presented your complaint. But the investigation could not be finished with the rapidity which the government of Chili desired, because the rules of pro- ceedure in criminial matters which are established by our laws are of slow application, and it was not possible for the president to modify or set them aside. This delay, which was inevitable owing to the independence with which the judicial authorities must act, has compelled the government of the undersigned to delay, greatly to its regret, the settlement of the difficulty pending with your government and a spontaneous offer of reparation for any injury done to the sailors of the Baltimore and that might be attributed to Chilian soldiers and sailors, or that might affect the responsibility of Chili. In view of your communication, and considering that, up to date, it has been impossible for the trial initiated by the judge of the criminal court of Valparaiso to be decided, the undersigned regards it as his duty to declare cnoe more, that the government of Chili laments the occurrence of Oct. W, and byway of showing the sincerity of his following, and tha confidence he has in the justice of his cause, he declares his'will- kiguess to await the decision of the examining judge, and proposes to the United States government that the case be submitted to the consideration of the supreme court of justice at Washington, to the end that that high tribunal, with its learning and impartiality, may determine, without appeal, whether there is any ground for reparation, and in what shape it should be made. Quote* from Kluine. Minister Pereira next calls attention to the disorganized condition of the country at the time of the assault and then quotes Mr. Elaine's note to the Italian foreign minister in answer to the demands of Italy, as follows: "There is no government, however civilized it may be, however great may be the vigilance displayed by its police, and however severe its criminal code may be, and howevtr speedy and inflexible may be its Administration of justice, that can guarantee its own citizens against violence rowing out of individual malice or a sud- popular tumult." This was preoisely the situation of the *dniUii»trtitive authorities at Valparaiso W the occasion of the occurrence which took place in October. Mr. Pereira then calls attention to the of arbitration of the qneitioa in the two governments could not to »n amicable agreement in the manner. Tue Chilian spntetor The Secretary Some Statements Made by Montt. DEPARTMENT OF STATE, WASHINGTON, Jan. 27, 38!)'J.—Sir: 1 have the honor to acknowledge vour favor dated the a3rd inst., but not received by mo until Mon- dny, the 25th. I beg to comment on two or three of its recitals. I think from zeal for your country you have made some mistakes, •which I shall proceed to correct. You are right in saying that I considered the proceedings of the government of Chili in making the judicial investigation ot! the unhappy affair at Valparaiso entirely praiseworthy. But you will remember as early as $he 25th of November I complained of the length of the judicial proceedings, and from time to time renewed the complaint, saying to you very lately that the court had already been eighty days in session, considering a matter which in the United States would have been wholly disposed of in two or three weeks. You replied that the Spanish law was slow in its processes, but exact in its conclusions, and with your statements I had to be content, though impatient for a liual judgment. Your offer of arbitration was never Unconditional and Exact. Had it been I would have insisted on your reducing it to writing, for it would have been my duty to lay it before t;he president 1'or consideration. But I was unable to report a mere verbal exchange of views between us as an agreement to arbitrate. You did say to me several times that, in that distant future when the Chilian court should render its judgment (if the United States should uot be satisfied with it), the two countries could arbitrate the matter. And even then vou always maintained that Chili would not voluntarily propose arbitration herself,but would do so when requested by some friendly power to take that course. On one occasion you mentioned Spain as a nation likely to intervene with Chili most effectively. You always looked to the future for the proposal and acceptance of arbitration. You say in your note: "I took occasion to inform you on tho 1st of January that my government authorized me to conclude an agreement looking to arbitration, and my government subsequently approved the agreement concluded by me. The Muttii Note. In regard to the Matta note, which was the subject of contention between us, you sum it up in the following declaration: "1 added, however, that it was far from being the purpose of my government to act in a manner at all offensive to the president of the United States or to any member of his cabinet, and that Mr. Matta's note, if rightly constructed, admitted of no such construction. I afterwards had the honor to inform you that I had received instructions from my government to inform that of the United States, that, considering the views expressed by Messrs. Buchanan and Webster in 1849 and 1850, that the messages sent by the president to congress are domestic communications, which cannot serve as a basis tor the interpretation of foreign powers oi their representatives, my government had no objection to striking out of the note of Dec. 11 such words as might be considered disagreeable by the United States government." By your own statement you evidently attempted to justify the Matta note. I certainly could not accept your language and never did accept language of that kind as an apology sufficient for the case. The Matta note was highly discourteous to the president and the secretary of the navy, imputing to them untruth and insincerity. Such language does not admit of contingent or conditional apology, which you offered. It could be apologized for only by a frank withdrawal. That you did not comply with Chili's request to publish it here was the swougest proof of your own disapproval of the note. Tbe Eg«m Matter. In regard to Mr. Egan, you complained many time* «ad very bitterly to me. E»- peci»Uy WM be deserving of sea»vu«, you thought, for OQt communicating tofrto Official Answer of the Secretary to ClilU'a Note of' Apology. WASHINGTON, Feb. 1.—The following is the reply sent by Secretary Elaine to the Chilian government note of apology: Egan, Minister, Santiago:—I am directed by the president to acknowledge the receipt of Senor Pereira's dispatch of the 25th instant. It has been communicated to congress and has given great pleasure to the people of the United States and the executive department, as it restores the correspondence between the two republics to a basis of cordial ty and makes, as ho believes, a full and honorable adjustment o£ all unsettled matters easily attainable. The president notes with gratification the expressions of regret for and condemnation of the assault upon the sailors of the Baltimore, offered by Senor Pereira and congratulates the Chilian government upon the frank and prompt withdrawal of the Matta circular and upon the spirit of justice displayed towards Minister Egan. You will assure the Chilian government that the president will be glad to meet, in the most generous spirits, these friendly overtures. Believing that the spirit of reparation for the assault upon the seamen of the Baltimore is now capable of adjustment between the two governments by the usual diplomatic methods, the president postpones, for the present, any discussion of the suggestions made by Senor Pereira as to the use of other methods; not .doubting that the sense of justice of Chili will enable the two governments to speedily and honorably make a full end of the whole mattsr.

When but 17 years old he became pastor of a small Baptist chapel at Waterbeach, preaching in a barn, to which great, crowds flocked to hear him. The fame of his eloquence and earnestness spread rapidly, and invitations to preach poured in upon him from all parts of -England. In 1858 Mr. Spurgeon made his first appearance before a London congregation, and so pronounced was his success that it was found necessary to enlarge the church building. While this work was being done he preached at Exeter hall, and so great was his popularity that it was found necessary to turn away hundreds of those who crowded to hear him. In 1856 tho "Tabernacle" was built to accommodate the constantly increasing numbers of Mr. Spurgeon's congregation. Many hundreds of the great preacher's sermons have been printed, not only in English, but in most of the languages of continental Europe. The Tabernacle, when Mr. Spurgeon occupied its pulpit, was largely frequented by Americans in London. It is doubtful if any English theologian of the time has more forcibly impressed his personality upon his generation than has the preacher whose death has just been announced. In his illness, which began seven months ago, he has had world-wide sympathy and his devoted congregation have been untiring in their petitions to the Lord for his recovery.
