New York, Feb. 27.—Gen. Grant escaped a Mil

vested ride,he took hold of it in such i manner that it
w*« accidentally discharged, part of the cartridge eu
teriug the left hand and lodging in bis p-i™ and
thumb, wounding him. report says, seriously. The
scene of this unfortunate accident was in the private
apartment of General Grant, his Aid and four children

Washington, Feb. 27.—The agents of the Poet Of
fice lately advertised the letting of over 7u0 routes in
the States of Mississippi, Louisians, Arkansas, Ala
bama and Georgia. Only 184 were let, and on 518 the
people are still destitute of postal facilities, either be
cause tbe railroads and stages will not carry the
United States mails, or because they can’t, on ac
count of the test oath. Secretary Dennison refuses to
allow any contractor, postmaster ormail messenger to
‘handle the mails without first haring taken the oath.
Fred Douglass writes that an attempt waa made to
assassinate him in Baltimore last Sunday night.
The Senate Military Committee resolved, at their
meeting yesterday, to report a bill to provide for tbe
national defence, by establishing an active uniform
militia force throughout the United Statea. The first
section makes every able-bodied male person, ttrtween
twenty and forty years of age, subject to enrollment
for militia duty. The second section exempts all the
executive and Judicial officers of the government,
and of the States, members of Congress, postmaster®,
pilots, marines, telegraph operators, and all persons
in charge of the mails. Several provide for the estab
lishment of a Militia Bui'ean in the Adjutant General
ol militia in each State, to be selected by the govern
ment, who is to review and inspect the mint,. e t c .
Section 10 says there shall be organized in all of the
Statea one regiment of active volunteer militia for
each congressional district. All officers of this active
force. are to be appointed by the Governors of the
Statea and Territories, bnt the )¥ar Department is to
furnish all arms, etc. The President can order all or
any part into service at any tjuie. The Lieutenant
General may cause inspections to be made from time
General Steedman was telegraphed last week by his
friends to come on to Washington at the earliest prac
ticable time for consultation with the President on tbe
phase of public affair*. He arrived yesterday morn

the forenoon. Many profess to believe that in the
event of a Cabinet dissolution he can have the port

THE FENIANS IN AMERIOA——A PARLI AMENTA Y IN
In the House of Commons on the 9th Mr Watkins
gave notice that on the 16tli he should ask the Chan
cellor of the Exchequer whetlmr any or what
representation had been made on behalf of her Majes
ty’s Government to tbe Government of the United
Statea, with reference to the Fenian organization in
America, more especially with regard to the employ

the so-called Irish Republic. He should also move for

In the House of Commons, un the 8th, the adjourned
debate on the address in response to the Queen’*
speech waa resumed by’The O’Donoghue,” who made
a characteristic speech upon the grievances of Ireland.
He argued that the discontent and disloyalty of Ireland
were the natural result of mismanagement, and al
though hopaless as tbe Fenian struggle with England
might be, he insisted that the conspiracy was wide and
deeply seated. He totally dissented from the para
graph relating to Ireland In the Queen's speech, and
moved amendment expressing It to be the duty of
ministers to examine into the causes of Irish hi—«m.
faction and to remove them.
Sir. Blake seconded the amendment, and referred to
efte har»htreatm&t wbiah, he said, the recent politi-
cal prisoners were being subjected to.
Mr. Raw son remarked that this statement was utterly
without foundation, and opposed the amendment.
Heveral Irish members followed in much the same
strain as ‘‘ The O’Donoghue,•' and one hr two mem
berspstated that the Fenian conspiracy waa of Ameri
can origin, and that Mr. Seward was r *' * ~

The New South of the 24th nit. says:
“John Ferguson, Esq., of Charleston, former owner
•f tbe steamer Planter, has applied for possession oi
the steamer, claiming that she was stolen by negroes
and captured from them by the federal blockading
squadron, that he has taken the amnesty oath, and the
steamer should be restored to him with his other
property. Gen. Saxton reporta that the Planter was
employed by the rebels, and while in this service was
brought past tbe batteries and surrendered to Admiral
DuPont by a slave named Robert Small The steamer
has since been employed by the quartermaster's de
partment and Small placed lu command.
"Major M. R. Delaney, (colored) of the 104th U. S.
colored troops, has been retained in service nothwith-
• tending his regiment has been mastered out, at the
request at Major Gen. Sickles.
"Last Monday evening a sad affair occurred near the
Army Machine Shim at St. Helena. Mr. D. H. Rice
of Lemon Island, Brood river, was in the set of re
moving some copper from the old steamer Edwin
Lewis, when some dispute ~rose between him, Mr.
John H. Mars, and Mr. Valentine Wall as tohia (Rice’s)
right to take tbe copper. In the melee Mr. Rice drew
his pistol and shot Mr. Wall, the ball entering near
the eihgth rib on the left aide. The wounded mat is
now at the Post Hospital. Although the ball has not
been extracted it is thought he will recover. ’’
Mr. Maguire characterized the Fenian taovement as
hopeless, and the caase of Injury to the country. He,
however, thought the Irish people had many serious
grievances to complain oC and considered that the
government ought to make it their duty to take the
state of things into consideration. Mr. Gladstone took
exception to the remarks that the evils which afflicted
Ireland were the results of legislation, and objected to
pledge Parliament to redress evils which were in some
degree beyond their power. He also objected to the
amendment, on the ground that the government had
in the address desired to denounce Fenianism, and
said that the more clear and unequivocal their language
was, the better it would be. Some of th« questions
brought under their notice by members were being
fully considered, and would in due time be brought
before Parliament; and the legislation ought not to
give merely vogue general promises to a people so
sensible of former wrongs.
The amendment was lost by an overwhelming ma
jority, 346 to 25. The address was then agreed to.
The Dublin police on the 9th discovered a second
extensive Fenian manufactory of ammunition. All
the material for making rifle cartridges were found in
court-martial was in process in Dublin upon a
gunner in the Ninth Artillery, charged witlLdsloyalty
and treason. Two other soldiers in the regiments of
the line were also about to be tried by court-martial,
charged with drilling parties of Fenians.
An energetic search for arms hiri been made at
Waterford, but without effect.
The Jamaica affair was before Parliament. In the
House of Commons Sir John Parkington complained
that the conduct of Governor Eyre had been mis
judged, especially so by Mr. Bright, who, he said, had
accused the Governor of the murder of Mr. Gordon.
Mr. Bright replied in a quiet, satirical manner, and
stated that he had no doubt the commissioners would
do os much justice to the Governor as to the blacks in
Jamaica. He denied that he had pre-judged the Gov
ernor, who, he said, was condemned by his own re
port. Mr. Cardwell defended the conduct of the Gov
ernor, who, he said, hnd endeavored to avoid pre
judging the question.
THB CATTLE PLAGUE.
An Influential deputation from the various agricul
tural societies had waited upon Sir George Grey, and
urged upon him the absolute suspension or the traffic
in the ca’.t'e, on the ground that isolation was the
great means of staying the plague.
The Morning Herald says the existence of the rain
istry depends upon .fhe way it deals with the cattle
Iu the House of Lords, on the 8tb, the Earl of Car
narvon called attention to a statement that Govern
meut declined to appoint a day lor national humilia

that the calamity was only partially felt by the nation.
Earl Bussell repeated what Sir George Grey had said
In his letter, that a prayer applicable ’to thecottle
