"27.--The so-called con- gress of the revolutionary government of the Filipinos, which has been in session for some time at Malolos has nnexpecedly adjourned, owing to the difficulty of forming a constitution. The cabinet of President Aguinahlo, appointed at Bacoor on July 15 last aud named in th Bacoor proclamation issued that day, has resigned. Gem Aguinaldo. who had heen at Malolos. came from there to Santa Anna, a suburb of Manila. Itc then visited Paterno, aml now. it is report- ed. he has gone to Cavite Yiejo, the old town of Cerise. Reliable advices say that while he was at Paterno he was indefatigable in lfis efforts to overcome the policy of the militant faelions, which is hostile to the Ameri- cans. It is probable that his influ- ence vill fail to avert trouble. The Filipino cabinet, proclaimed at Bacoor on July 15, in couformity with a decree issued by the revolutionary government on June 14, was made up of the following persmmeh 1"resident of the council of minis- ters. wifh ad interim portfolios of foreign affairs, nmrine and commerce.

MtsMs.ippl Cattle For Cubo According to the National Live Stoek Jonrnal of St. Louis Mississippi has shipped up to date to the St. L,uis market 1,037 carloads of c;ttlt'. I is estimated that cattle shipments for tho season of 1898 up to the prcaent timo amount to fully $1,000,000 to all mar- kets. Recently many Cuban buyers have been in the State buying rattle for shipment to the island. A large shipment was made from Brandon re- cently aml aaother one from McComb City. The latter shipment was about 600 tiead, eonslgned to Cienfuegou. Mississippi cattle are much in demand in Cuba, as they stand the climate ad- mirably, while cattle from northern latitudes invariably die of the acclima- tiou fever. The opening of the Cuban market is an offset to the recent pro- hibitory quarantine rule passed against Southern cattle by the Northern and Western markets.
