Mr. Egan to Mr. Blaine.


Mr. Egan states that the minister for foreign affairs urgently requests that the Government of the United States will permit one of its ships to carry from Valparaiso to Montevideo a sum of about $4,000,000, bar silver, which is required for the payment of the interest on the national debt abroad; that the Chilean Government fears its capture by revolted fleet if the sum is sent in the regular course of business; and that outside of Iquique, which has been captured by fleet, the country is perfectly tranquil.
