SUMMARY' O THE GENERAL NEWS.
A Tfrrlble Tornado.
On the 4th inst. a terrible tornado struck
Mount Carmel, 111., about 4 p. m., causing
great loss of life and property. Twelve per
sons are known to be killed, thirty to fifty
"wounded, and about twenty missing. Among
the buildings destroyed are the Presbyterian
and Methodist churches, two school houses
the court house, and several stores and resi
dences. The direction of it was from south
east to a little north of east, and its line of de
struction embraced all of Fourth street and a
large part of the territory between Third and
Fifth streets. The duration of the wind did
not exceed two minutes, but the rain contin
ued for some time after the Cyclone passed on.
The velocity of the wind was estimated at 150
miles per hour. During its prevalence the air
was tilled with flying roofs, windows, lumber,
rails, clothing, &c. Much of the debris was
carried more than a mile away. Thirteen
persons were killed outright and many others
will undoubtedly die of their injuries. There
are also several reported missing who are
probably buried in the ruins. It being a rainy
day, many farmers who could not work at
home were in town. The county court was
also in session, which brought many people to
the city. Men, women and children were
blown a distance of 400 feet as if they were
feathers. The best part of the town is de
stroyed, some seventy families are houseless,
and much'distress is anticipated.
Civil Service Inquiries.
A commission of three has been ap
pointed by Secretary Schurz to examine into
the methods now in force in the finance and
and accounting division of the Indian bureau,
especially as to the analysis of money and
property accounts of Indian agents, .and
whether the accounts of the agents are ren
dered in accordance with the law and regula
tions whether any expenditures are made
without proper authority, and whether the
present system is such as to show at all times
the condition of the money and property af
fairs at each agency. The last quarterly re
ports of agents are to be carefully scrutinized
for the purposes above stated, and a particular
examination will be made as to number and
compensation of employes at each agency,
and whether they are given or are allowed to
purchase subsistence or clothing in violation
of law. The board are also instructed to
make an examination as to the character and
total money value of special purchases for any
agency, during the present fiscal year, and
whether such purchases have been properly
accounted for. The board are not to be lim
ited by these specific instructions, but are to
make such further investigation as may be
deemed proper and for the best interests of
the service, and are authorized to call upon
any of the officers or employes of the bureau
for such information and assistance as may be
necessary. Republican Demonstrations in FriAee.
A a meeting of the President's of three
sections of the Left, remarkable moderation
was Bhown and a decision arrived at that M.
Gambetta, at the reopening of the Chamber,
should move an interpellation on the part of
the Left, but that contrary to the opinion of
M. Gambetta himself and M. Theirs, he should
refrain from arraigning the action of President
McMahon, whose irresponsibility should be
fully admitted. It was also decided that the
address in reply to McMahon's message should
be moderate rn form, though decided in sub
stance, and that if overtures should be made
to the majority with a view to ministerial
changes, they should not be rejected without
consideration, although it would be necessary
to insist upon the retirement of M. Fourtou.
It was finally decided that the question of
sanctioning the budget should be left to the
budget committee. A majority of the meet
ing appeared to be of the opinion that nothing
should be done to render dissolution inevitable.
It was admitted that M. Fourtou's resolution
relative to hawking licenses rendered many
circumspect Republican newspapers more
lukewarm in their utterances, and that to give
the Republican canvassing the significance of
hostility to McMahon would lose a number of
The fillenton (8. G.) Riots.
The Ellenton riot cases have come to
an end by the discharge of the jury, who it
was found could only agree on a verdict in
case of one of the eleven persons charged with
conspiracy. This was A. W. Atkinson, a man
over sixty years old, who was acquitted. The
judge then discharged the jury and the ten
remaining prisoners were released on giving
bonds for their appearance at the next term of
court. Counsel think it unlikely that these
cases will ever again be tried. It is inow
known that the jury stood six:to six on the
question of general acquittal, the six whites
being for, and the six blacks against. The
black jurymen, however, were willing to agree
on a verdict convicting two of the accused and
acquitting the rest, but the six whites wonld

The commission appointed to investi
gate into custom house affairs met and exam
ined the first witness, Mr.'Miller, the owner of
a bonded warehouse, at 71 and 74 South street,
and 88 and 90 Pearl street. He said Superin

also said he was satisfied that millions of dol

through means of damage allowance. The law
that respect ought to be amended, and a
more careful examination should be made by
honest and competent appraisers, and a good
salary paid them and they should be placed
above the temptation to accept gratitudes.
The Tornado Sufferers.
A dispatch from Mount Carmel has been
received as follows: The calamity which has
befallen the city has not been overstated by
letters written to the papers of metropolitan
cities. Fourteen blocks of beautiful homes
and business houses are in ruins, a hundred
families houseless and helpless, a score dead
and over seventy badly hurt in a population of
2,500. A loss not less than $300,000 is too
heavy a load for this heart-stricken people to
carry alone, and help must come from the

Eugene Schuyler, Consul General at
Constantinople writes to the State department
that the public debt of Turkey amounts to
$937,000,000,the annual interest on which, sixty
five millions, is more than half the total reven
ue of the Empire. The last annual bjudget
published, that of March, '76, showed a deficit
of twenty-one millions. Unless great reforms
are speedily introduced into Turkey and care
given to the development of its natural re

A a late Cabinet meeting the Ut ah
troubles were discussed at some length, and
the opinion of United States Attorney How
ard, of that Territory, in regard to the prosecu
tions for complicity in the Mountain Meadow
mascacre fully considered. It was agreed that
the United States authorities in that Territory
should proceed with firmness in these prose
cutions and all offenders be brought to justice
Should the Mormons make any attempt to
prevent the punishment of their leaders the
government will see that a sufficient force is
sent to the Territory to enforce the decree of
the courts, but it is not believed that there
will be any trouble.

RUSSIA'S WAR WITH TUBK.EI.
A numb er of bulletins from the Rus
sian eomm&hder-in-chief in the Caucasus
seem to show that the insurrection has spread
towards the Caspian sea, for a successful ex
pedition is recorded against a tribe on the
eastern slopes of the Caucasus, which forms
part of Baghestan. Bulletins report thatGen.
Kravehento had a hot engagement with 3,000
of the enemy on passing over the bridge of
Boyada. From this it would seem he has been
obliged to leave his position above Sukum
Kalch and fall back behind the river Kodor,
where a force is being assembled to prevent
the Turks from invading Mingula The Grand
Duke Nicholas recently said to a foreign Con
sul, "Neither PrinceBirmarcknor Lord Derby
will prevent us from entering Constantinople
as the Germans entered Paris, only to leave
it again." Travelers from Rustchuk report that
the impression has been gaining ground for
the last three days that the Russians will very
shortly endeavor to cross the Danube at three
different points, making Rustchuk the chief
object of their attack. All women have left
the town. Foreign consuls, except the Eng
lish, will leave in a few days. Simultaneously
with Sulieman Pasha, Mehemet Ali attacked
the Montenegrins at Kalaschin, killing 80 and.
losing 36 of his own men.
The London Times special from Vienna
announces that representatives of the guar
anteeing powers in St. Petersburg have been
informed that Count Schouvadoffis the bearer
of the Russian answer to Lord Derby's note,
and that it is hoped the contents of that an
swer will be deemed satisfactory by the Brit
ish government. A complete understanding
between Russia and Austria, which is reported
by some, can only be said, to exist within
roper limits, namely, that Russia has un
been made aware that certain con
tingencies would be deemed contrary to the
interests of Austria, and she has and doubtless
will endeavor to keep clear of these but this
is a very different thing from an agreement as
to the future solution of the Eastern ques
tion, in which Austria perhaps more than any
other power is concerned to uphold the con
cert QI the powers.
The following is a Turkish account of
the position of affairs in Asia Minor: On the
morning of the 6th of June, Mukhtar Pasha's
headquarters, with nine battalions, was at
Eaprekos. The 'lurkish right, consisting of
twenty battalions, was at Delibaba. The Turk
ish left wing, sixteen battalions, was at Gurdji
and the baggage about six hours' march from
Erzeroum. The same account only assigns
four batteries of artillery to these-forty-five
battalions, which seems incredible, though it
has bee repeatedly stated from various
sources that the Turks in Asia Minor were al
most destitute of artillery. This report places
the main body of the Russian right wing at
Olti, with advanced guards at Noriman'and
the Russian center at Soghanli Dagh. The
Russian left has suspended its forward move
ment. A Russian detached column is ap
Eroaehing Van, and has reached the bridge of
endimahon, twenty miles from Van.
An Amusing Visit.
Among other ludicrous mistakes that
have happened to Congressmen in Wash
ington, the correspondent of the Boston
Journal relates the following: The lit
tle suites of rooms at the National Hotel
open upon little halls, uniform in appear
ance, connected by long corridors, and are
all furnished alike. One night Senator
Mangum, of North'Carolina, then Presi
dent pro tempore of the Senate, a dignified
gentleman of the old school, had just re
turned from a party, when Gov. Upham,
a senator from Vermont, came in without
any ceremony and took a seat. The two
chatted away oh politics, the weather, the
/Social amusements, &c, &cJ, until the
clock aja the mantel-shelf struck one.
Reallyf^Gov. Upham,' said Mjmgum, I
am always pleased to see you, but I really
believe it is getting very late.' I have
thought so for some time,' replied Up
hambu he made no movement. Pro
vidently the half-hour sounded, and Man
gum remarked: I thought, Gov. Upham
that you had. decided^to go to bed, sir?'
So I had, Mr. President,' answered the
Vermonteiy. yet he did not budge. Man
gum stared at him in amazement, and iat
Jast plainly said: But why don't you go
to your room. Gov. Uhham? It will soon
be 2 o'clock?' 'My room, Mr. President!
why, this is my room, and I have been
waiting for you to go for-two hours past.'
Mang um sprang to his feet, looked into
the sleeping-room adjacent, and found
that he was in Upham's room instead of
his own. Mr. Webster used to enjoy jok
ing him about his visit to Vermont."

The Dead City of Is.

Brittany, all having substantially the

Built in the vast basin which to-day
forms the bay of Douenenez, and sepa
rated from the sea by a dike, was the
ancient city of Is. In the dike were
sluices which from time to time were
opened sufficiently to admit enough
water for the cleaning of the drains and
otherwise purifying the city. King Grad
lon, a well-beloved monarch, ruled here,
and once a month presided in person at
the opening of the sluices the principal
one was opened by a silver key, which
the king always wore fastened about his
I was a splendid court that Ki ng Grad

of his capital was the wonder of the coun

as we dream of. In it marble, cedar and
gold replaced the oak, granite and iron
ordinarily used in building.
The honors of the king's court were
done by his daughter Dahut, or Ahes
a princess shamefully known as the
Honoria of Brittany. Like that other
notoriously wicked woman
She had for a crown the vices, and for pages
the seven deadly sins.
This woman was accused of the most
heinous crimes. I wras
her habit each
night to entice young men whom she
fancied to a chosen and secluded retreat,
where, when they ceased to amuse her,
they were dispatched by a masked me
nial, and their corpses borne away to the
mountains. One is shown near Huel
goat, a gulf, at the bottom of which
rushed the mountain stream with sad,
strange murmurings, and through which
the winds are ever sighing^noises which
the old wives interpret as cries from the
souls of Dahut's lovers.
Complaints were made to Gradlon
time and again, and he always promised
to mete out speedy punishment to his
daughter, but paternal indulgence was
stronger in his heart than royal duty aiad
so Dahut went on in her wicked ways.
His leniency was repaid by the basest
ingratitude. His wicked child formed a
plot against him, by which she meant to
secure for herself the royal power. The
silver key was the symbol of the king's
authority, and Dahut soon possessed her
self of itstealing it from her father's
neck while the man slept.
The king, when he found that the key
was gone, was in the greatest consterna
tion, and, under the ominous cloud of
coming misfortune, retired to his palace,
that the people, who regarded the key
with superstitious reverence, might not
know of his loss. A night he wa6
awakened from a troubled slumber by
the appearance of S Guenole before him,

Dahut has opened the sluices by means

I is true. Dahut, going to meet one
of her lovers, who is also a conspirator
with her against the old king, had by
mistake opened the gate of the sea instead
of the gate of the city. The first thought
of the king, on hearing this dreadful in

behind him on his fleetest horse, and fled
away from the encroaching wall of sea as
fast as spur could drive.
The ssea followed him with fearful rap
idity, but Dahut's cries of fright were
louder in his ears than the noise of the
waves, still not so loud as a supernatural
Voice beside him, which said:
"Gradlon^ if you would not perish

rides behind you."
Dahut also heard the voice, and became
almost frantic with terror she clung con

him. Then the king rode on safely to
