Mr. Egan to Mr. Blaine.


Mr. Egan states that entire tranquillity prevails everywhere except in the northern provinces that the President opened Congress yesterday auspiciously; that England, as well as Germany, refuses to recognize the right of the Chilean Government to close ports; that American vessels are not interfered with; and that the Chilean Government urgently requests that the proposition of the Chilean minister for the purchase of a man-of-war be favorably considered.
