Takes pleasure in calling the attention oi the public to this
great enterprise, which brings a library into every man's
household. The American Cyclopaedia is the grandest work
ever published in America; It ia the knowledge of the centuries
boiled down, the essence of all books crystallised. It stands
on your shelves ready to answer every conceivable question,
and gives in brief paragraphs the results of other men's years
of toilsome investigation.
In this age no one has time to grope among the thousand
and one different works for every fact required, even if the
volumes stand on t) is shelves; while with a Cyclopaedia, the
matter in question ia found at once, digested, condensed,
stripped of all that is irrelevant, and verified by a comparison
of the best authorities. Moreover, this compilation has been
performed by special writers, who are the highest authorities
upon the subjects with which they deal; so that this work is
the epitome and ultimatum of all knowledge, and precludes
the necessity of having other books. You are probably spend
ing dollar after dollar for books which are only of limited
scope, whereas the same money expended In the same small
amounts for the American Cyclopaedia, will purchase a library
It is not obligatory to take all the volumes now published
upon the first delivery; a volume msy be delivered once a
month, or once in two months, at the option of the subscriber,
and can be had In Library Leather, half Morocco or Russia
bindings, ranging in price from $8.60 to $11.00 per volume.
We would also call attention to Bancroft's
Native Races of the Pacific States,
Acknowledged to be the grandest work of research America
has ever produced, complete in five volumes, and will be served
to subscribers at $8.00 per volume in sheep.

Strikes and Laborers' riots have prevailed re
cently in different parts of the United States, in
some places of a very serious nature, involving
the loss of millions of property and many lives,
as at Pittsburg, Pa. It is the old story of the
confliot between labor and capital, and as we
read the accounts we are inclined to think that in
the present instance labor has the best side of the
controversy but that does'nt excuse violence,
which in the end is sur6 to defeat itself.

To the Editor of the Pacific Commercial Advertiser

publisbe3 a letter from that journal's correspon

The name is very apropos, and the tone of the
letter evinces a disposition to sneer at our little
world of the Islands for the entertainment of folks
beyond the Pond. If 44 Gossip " will take a
friend's advice, he will make up his mind not
to write any more letters for the iktn IVancisco
Chronicle, like that to which 1 reler. e all try
to get along here the best way we can, and if
" liossip " UQtl3 the islands not to bis taste, toe
world is wide, and he can pack off whenever he
likes. But to grumble and sneer at our little
Hawaiian world in the ban t rancisco papers,
is very bad taste for a man who resides in the
country. If any such letters from 44 Gossip"
continue to appear in the Chronicle, it is only
fair to . the country to publish bis real name,
which, of course is known here, and this would

A Friend of Hawaii nei,
l?er LiUelike. August 14.-.
Our latest telegraphic news from the seat of war
in the East, is to August 4th. Since oar last pub
lished accounts, very bard fighting has been going
on between the belligerents. The military opera-
tions have been almost exclusively confined to the
valley of the Danube and the Balkan passes; there
are no accounts of any engagements of importance
in Armenia. Despatches from Erz-er-room, the
capital of Turkish Armenia, dated August 3d, an
nounce that the Russians have been reinforced on
that battle ground.
The Russian centre had again assumed the offen
sive, after having been reinforced by fourteen battal
ions of infantry, and three field batteries. Kars
still stood the brunt of the Kussian attack un
daunted, but there had been continuous fighting on
the advanced lines before the grim old fortress.
General Tergourkassoff was recovering from his
late discomfiture, and bad been reinforced by five
battalions of infantry, one battery, and a regiment
of dragoons. The right wing of the Russians army
in Armenia was advancing on Penek. There is not
a word about the Grand Duke Michael in the latest
telegraphic news from Armenia. Important intelli
gence from the Russian coast of the Eastern Euxine
is contained in a telegram from the Euxine seaport
of Sookoom-Kaleh, dated August 2d. This Russian
seaport, it will be remembered, was taken from the
Russians by the Turkish fleet under llobart Pasha,
soon after the first outbreak of hostilities in Asia,
and has since been held by the Turkish force which
was then landed as a corps d' occupation. The
despatch in question states that the Turkish frigate
Maumadieh bombarded the Russian batteries of
Tchamtchiva on July 30tb, and, after an engage
ment in which the Maumadieh was considerably
damaged, and several of her crew killed and
wounded, the Turkish frigate succeeded in silenoing
every Kussian gun. in the vioinity of Tchamtchiva,
there was a force of 6000 Turks in a very critical
position, in consequence of the advanoe of the
Russian army. But llobart Pasha cleverly em
barked the whole -force on August 1st, under cover
of the guns of the Turkish fleet. This exploit re
dounds to the credit of the gallant British 44 tar."
The Caucasus has now been evacuated by the
Turkish troops, and as the people had revolted
against the Russians on the first arrival of the
Turks, it is to be apprehended that tbey will be
given up to the butchery of the Cossacks without
mercy. llobart rash a naa command of the entire
Turkish Euxine fleet, which consisted of twenty
five men of war, and transports. A Vienna dis
patch of August 8d, forwarded to London a report
from Constantinople to the effect that 25 battalions
of Turkish regulars bad been ordered from Batoom
in Turkish Armenia on the Eastern Euxine to Varna
on the opposite side of that sea in Bulgaria, for the
purpose or re-inforcing the Turkish army on the
Danube. If this report be corrcot. It would seem
that the Turks did not apprehend any serious danorer
from uussian attacks in Armenia.
Glancing from the eastern to the western shores of
the Euxine, we are justified in stating that moment
ous events have taken place on the battle-ground in
European Turkey, since our last published accounts.
A great battle was fought at Plevna, on Tuesday
July 81st, and two previous days in which the
Russians were totally routed by the Turks. The sc.
count of this brilliant Turkish victory is related by
a special correspondent attached to the command of
the Russian Ueneral bebaokoekoy, and cannot there
fore be suspected of being prejudiced in favor of
the Turks, we publish the correspondent's des
patch in extenso in another column. From his
statements it appears that the affair at Plevna may
De set aown as a qownngnt itussian disaster.
All Europe is in amazement at the Turkish
prowess. The isew iork Tt met special from Lon
don says : 44 The crushing defeat of the Russians.
announced in last night's dispatches, is the latest'of
a series or reverses sustained by the Invadinir armv
in European Turkey, resembling in many respects

Asia Minor terminated." The dispatch adds
" Ths Czar, who, though always making a treat
show of confidence is the reverse of saniruine. is
overwhelmed with grief at these disasters." The
tattle-&eld of Plevna is situated to the south of ths
Danube, In Bulgaria, on the route from KioorxJis. a
Turkish fortress on the south bank of the Danube,
to tne uaikan mountains, and is about equidistant
from Grabova cn the southeast and Sofia on the
southwest Beyond Grabova lies the Sbipka Pass of
tne iiautans on tne man road to Adrianople. and. in
our last published accounts, we stated that this was
the route of the Russian advance anon Constantino
ple. Now, it appears, by our last despatches, that
the lurkisn commander cut bis way right through
the Russian lines of advance, and beat the Russians
tremendously between the Ealka.ua and the river
Danube, cutting off their advance-guard which was
pushing on for Adrianople and ultimately Constan
tinople, from their main point d'appul on the
Danube. This has been the splendid result of
Osman Pasha's strategy, and it now appears why the
Turks allowed the Russians to cross the Danube so
quietly. Furthermore, the Russians were experiencing
fully the difficulties of bringing on their supplies
from the rear as we anticipated in our previous
remarks at the outbreak ot tbo war, and it is pite
ous to read of the deplorable condition ot bchakos-
koy's routed army on their retreat from Plevna
after their whipping by the gallant General and
able strategist, Osman Pasha. A London telegram
of August 3d, states that another battle took place
at Plevna on Wednesday (August 1st), In which
the Russians were again defeated. But this was
mere rumor. Another telegram of August 3d re

between those mountains and Adrianople. Sulei
man Pasha is watching the advance of the Russians
on Adrianople, but the report in question is con
sidered doubtful. In the pobrudja, that part of
the Turkish territory enclosed between the Black
Sea and the Danube Delta and bend north of Bul
garia proper, the Egyptian contingent was fighting
bravely against Zimmerrnann'a corps I and a dis
patch oi August zed irom Varna says that toe
Russian operations in the Drobudja had been
brought to a stand-still. Another deupatcb of Au
gust 3d states that 7000 more Egyptian troops were
about to be sent to Constantinople. On the other
band, a St Petersburg despatch of August 3d, re
ports tout the whole ot the Russian Imperial
Guard has been ordered to proceed to Bulgaria.
The latest news from Servia of any importance is
contained in a despatch oi August 2u to the eject
that Prince Milan bad ordered 3000 mililla to act
as a frontier guard. But, there ia no appearance of
a rebellion of the cervian chief against bis suzerain
the Padshah at present, From Montenegro there
are no reports of any more fighting.
Turning to tne Lupiomatio situation, ureat JJrlt-
ain and all other powers still keep aloof from the
war., Tne success or tae Turks in Armenia and
more recently at Plevna, gave great satisfaction to
the TurkUh party in Great Britain, and strength
ened the hope that it will not be necessary for that
country to interfere in preventing the Csar from
occupying Constantinople, as the Turks seem
both able and willing to stop His Russian Majesty
themselves. . Since the Plevna overthrow the Czar
Is reported to be negotiating secretly with Austria
to lend him a helping band, and, on the other side,
England is also said to be looking forward to the
policy of an alliance with Austria, wbUe Prussia
is trying to prevent any alliance between Austria
and any of the powers. It is also reported that
Russia seeks the alliance of King Victor. Mean
while France is as quiet as a mouse, and appears
not to have the slightest Interest In the European
politics of the day. The little Kingdom of Greece
is beginning to talk big, and a rupture between
King George and the l'adsbah Is considered likclr.
The Greeks in the Turkish Provinces of Tbessaly
and Epirus and the Greek Islands are disponed to
be rebellious. But, at best, the Grooks cannot do
much, and an expedition of troops trom Constanti
nople and Egypt, landed at the Piraeus could take
Athens without great difficulty, quite Independent
of the fighting in Bulgaria. It is probable that
England would at onee interfere to prevent King
George from joining In the fight, for his own sake.
The most singular item of diplomatic , news Is a
statement in a Vienna despatch that Sweden Is
about to make some military preparations, In view
of the political situation. This might signify that
Sweden thinks it possible to recover once more)
from Russia ber lost Duchy of Finland and East
Baltic provinces. Were Sweden to undertake a
war against Rursia to recover Finland, and the
Poles to rise simultaneously, the Czar might have
to Gght for bis life in the long run. The barbarity
of bis troops in Europe and Asia is made the basis
of a circular from the Turkish Minister for Foreign
Affairs to the diplomatic corps of Turkey abroad,
which charges the Russian soldiery with the most
inhuman treatment of helpless Turks, men, women
and children. On the other band the fanaticism of
the Moslems of Staroboul consequent on the ex
citement of the war, bad reached such a pitch that
a general massacre of christians was seriously ap
prehended by the foreign Consuls at Constantino
ple. These are the deplorable results of a war of
religions, in which botb sides thirst for the blood
of their foes, and think that In shedding it they do
an act meritorious in the sight of the Duity whom
London, August 8J. A correspondent sends
from Poredin, near Plevna, a graphic account of
Tuesday's battle which conveys a vivid idea of the
extent of the Russian disaster. The correspondent
is with Prince Scbackoskoys' command :
And now all hope of suocess anywhere was dead,
nor did the chances offer to make the best of defeat.
Prince Schackoskojs bad not a man left to cover
the retreat. Ths Turks struck without stint.
Tbey had the upper band for once, and were de
termined to show that they knew bow to make
the most of it. They advanoed in swarms through
the dusk on their original positions, and captured
Russian cannon before the batteries could be with
drawn. Turkish shells began once more to whistle
over the ridge above Radishova and fall Into the
village below, now crammed with wounded. The
lines of wounded men wending their painful way
over the ridge were incessant. The badly woun
ded mostly lay where they fell. Later, In ths
darkness, a baleful sort of " krabkentraeger"
swarmed over the battlefield, in the shape of
Bashi-Bazouks, who spared none. Lingering on
the ridge till the moon rose, the staff could bear
from below on the still night air the cries of pain
and entreaties for mercy. It was, Indeed, an hour
to wring the sternest heart. We stayed there to
learn, if it might be, what troops were coming op
the valley of the shadow of death below, or weather
there were, indeed, any at all to ooms. The Turks
bad our range before dark, and we could watch
the flash of flame over against us and then listen
to the scream of shell as it tore by us. The sound
of rifle bullets was inoessant, and esoort and retreat
ing wounded were struck. A detachment at length
began to come straggling up, but it will give an
idea of the disorganisation to say that when a
company was told off to oover somewhat the woun
ded in Radishova it had to be made up of men of
several regiments. About 9 o'clock the staff
quitted the ridge, leaving it littered with groaning
men, and moving gently, lest we should tread on
prostrate wounded, we lost our way, as we had
lost our army. We could find no rest for the solos
of our feet, by reason of ths alarms of BashU
Bazouks swarming in among the scattered and
retreating Russians. At length, at 1 in the mora
log, having been in the saddle sinee 6 on the
previous evening, we returned into a stubble-field,
and making beds of reaped grain, correspondent
and Cossack alike rested under the stars. But we
were not even then allowed to rest before the alarm
came that the Bashl-Basouks were upon us, aad
we had to rouse and tramp away. The only pro
tection of the chief of what in the morning was a
fine army was now a handful of wearied Cossacks.
General Krudener sent word in the morning that
he had lost several and could make no head-way,
and resolved to fall back on the line of the River
Osma. There bad been talk of bis troops being
fresh, and of renewing the attack to-day with bis
cooperation ; but lt is a plain statement of fact
that we have so troops to attack with. The most
moderate estimate Is that we have lost two regi
ments, say 6000 men, out of our three brigades.
This takes no account of General Krudener's losses.
Not a Russian soldier between Tirnova and the
victorious Turkish army in Loreoa and Plevna,
and only a weak division of the Eleventh Corps
stands between Tirnova and the thumla array.
I look on Prince Schaokoskoy's force as wrecked,
as no longer for this campaign to be counted as
fighting integer, It is not ten dsys sinoe ths
Thirtieth Division crossed the Danube in the pride
of superb condition. Now, what of it Is left Is
demoralized and shattered. So, on this side of
the Balkans, there remains but the Ninth Corps,
already roughly bandied, once at Nikopolia and
once at Plevna ; one division of the Eleventh Corps,
and the Rustchuk army. Now, if the lluslcbuk
army is marched to tbe west against Plevna, then
the Turkish army of Rustchuk is let loose on the
Russian communications to Tirnova. One cannot
avoid the conclusion that the advance over the Bal
kans is severely compromised. Russian scattered
detachments have been called up from Roumania,
and tbe Roumanian division, commanded by Gen
eral Manu, which crossed a day or two ago at
Nikopolis, has been called op to the line of the
Osma River. We are falling back on Bulgarenle
with all speed, leaving Bulgarian villages to the
tender mercies or the Turks. As 1 close, l learn
that on our left General Bkobellofl was very severe
ly bandied, having lost 800 men out of bis single
Cuicaoo, August Z. Tbe Inttr-Ocran's London
speoial says: There is quite a Jubilant feeling here
on aocount of the Turkish victories. The fact Is
recognized that so long as there is a Russian disas
ter there is no danger of English Intervention. It Is
possible that Osman Pasha may take advantage of
the disorder and oon fusion, and effect a luno'.ion
with Mehemet AU at Tirnova and orusb the forces of
tha Grand Duke, concentrated at that point. On tbe
other hand, if General Krudener bas held Lis ground
the Russian loss may be confined to the actual cum
ber Aors de combat, and relnforooraents msy. be
pressed forward which will enable him to renew the
attack. In that case, only a diversion In Osman's
favor by Mehemet All could save ths former from de
feat ft is believed that the latter, who Is In com-
munnication with Osman through Constantinople,
will press forward against Tirnova. Tbe London
Timet considers that this week's work means either
the prosecution of tbe war with Immensely increased
forces and most stubborn resolution on the part of
Russia, or else the acquiescence of that power la a
failure which changes all Its relations to its neigh
bors. Some important moves on the political chess
board are now expected. The more pressure the
Czar feels, the more will be be inclined to summon
to bis aid the lesser nationalities. Austria bas shown
that she bolds ths fate of tbe Bulgarian campaign In
ber Lands. The slightest snenao on ber part would
compel tbe Russians to recross the Danube and eaa-
quer tbe Austrian army before tbey could proceed
w tin tbeir operations against the Turks, to tbe
time being, England Is oat of range cf the com plica
tions, and can afford to remain quiet so long as there
is a prospect of the Continental Powers Laving to
defend tbeir national interests.
