London, August 30 to 31. The tubers m Ireland are partially rotten. Offers of assistance hare been received from Canada. The potato blight is spreading m Cheshire, Flintshire, Cambridgeshire and Huntingdonshire. By a fire at RatclifFe wharves 1000 tons of coal were destroyed. The men discharged from the Egeria are agitating for a revision of the sentences passed on the mutineers. They dilate on the tyranny of the Court Martial, and assert that witjj nesses were terrorised. It is unlikely that the proposal to work the docks on co-operative principles will come to anything, both the shipowners and dockers being opposed to it. The rumors of disaffection against Mr Parnell are revived, and Mr Davitt's name is included among the malconcents. The latter is represented as saying he had hoped the spectacle of the Irish begging for assistance had come to an end after the last famine. A varied system of crop culture is m his opinion the only hope for Ireland] otherwise the Tory panacea of emigra* tion is inevitable. Pariß, August 30. Foreign wheat is to be excluded from the French army contracts. New Yokk, August 30. An American cruiser has ordered the sealers carrying out their calling iii Behring Sea to desist. The sealers offered no resistance, and took their departure. Constantinople, August 31. The Sultan is furious at the escape of Moussa Bey. It is feared that further agitation m Armenia will be the result. Washington, August 31. It is probable Mr Kinley's Tariff Bill will be shelved, the sugar difficulty being the barrier.
