new conflict will be read with interest
In view of the declaration oi war uy
Sarvia against Turkey: The cause of the
quarrel which now arrays the soldiers
of tbe Servian prince against those of
his Suzerain the sultan was developed
toward the close of last year Dy the at
tempt of the Turks to colleot tne taxes
payable to tbe porte by the Inhabitants
of Herzegovina and Bosnia, two de
pendencies of the Turkish empire, situ
ated on the western side of Turkey in
Europe. This imposition of tribute has
alwavs been regarded by the christian
subjects of the sultan ss oppressive, and
they have never iaueu, wueu uo uppur-
tunlty preseniea liseu, io protest against,
It. fiither bv representations to the great
powers, or by an appa3l to arms. The
overpowering force of tho TnrWah bat-
tau&ne wmcu buupuivcu mc ii'jaui
erers of tha Padishah in their annual
visitations to tbe tributary provinces
had up to recently suppressed every at
tempt at resistance, and fha most ter
rible cruelties are charged against the
Turks during tho times of this forced
collection of taxes. This state of things
could possibly have no other termina
tion than in an armed revolt of the op
pressed people of Heizegoviria and .bos
nia, wnicn icos piiwe, m wo
stated, durintr the summer of
and has progressed with varying
fortune for the insurgents during the
past ten month?. By a series of on
slaughts on detachments of Turkish
troops, the HerzogGnvisians and Bos
nians have inflicted great losses cn their
ancient enemy, forcing him to orgmize
large armies against them, and often to
retreat beore thglr daring attacks. The
enterprise of tha Herxegoyinians and the
vigor of their resistance to tbeljr enemy
is illustrated by the several inefJTectutf
attempts of Mukhtar Pacha with a pow
erful force to ievictual the fortress of
NiC8ic a strong position on tbe north
ern frontier of Montenegro and a tem
porary armistice was declared between
tha belligerents, and in violation of
which tne Turkish general threw some
supplies into the town. This fact, which
was proved to be impossible in the pre -snce
ofHerzegovinian reals tance,enraged
the lnartrgenta beyond all hope of peace
ful settlemeut flf the quarrel, for they
Eaw in it thp evidence jf Turkish du
plicity and bad" faith, and prepared to
right the yar to the bitter end.
THE GREAT fOEBS INTERESTED.
Any event whjch in the remotest de
greo tended to reopen the only h&li-sct-tled
eastern question has been invested
with extraordinary gravity by the Eu
ropean powers, and thp highest o$ces
of diplomacy have leeu inyoked to set
tle the apparently li'.ojt insignificant
nnestion arrising within tho &ren of
tnat tfsbateable land, European Turkey.
I.t was, therefore, not to be wondered at
that vbsn the fl-tmts of Insurrection
broke out it fije territory of the "Sick
Man" their lurid eiare should light up
thd council-rooms of tbe consent and
force mlnfcteraof State to a hurried li
mitation as to til rasns of averting the
threatened danger. The vizso of Eiiropa
hajbeeaflo frequently disturbed o late
years and the balance of power of the
great Stat(B and empires being 'so deli
cately adjusted on the point of tbe bay-
Thar First JBattle of the
"net,.auy littlo Jur may participate a
ffirttlfba'ccey'and It would in all proba
bility take a mighty war to .restore
again that quiescent condition which
we have become accustomed to call
peace. The eastern question can be
compared only to a great bombshell
lo'sdeSl rftti fearful xplcsivfs and
dotted over with fuses which any spark,
no matter bow accidently applied, might
set fizzing toward the charge. Even
thelames of a burning cow in Herzego
vina might prove sufficient to
distroy tbe combustible walls of Eu
rope's temple of peace. It was not a
surprise, therefore to the world when
tho rllnlnmnHn rnm r,f RnsRin. Oarma.
nv. Austria and Enzland be?an to pour
dispatches into Constantinople giving
friendly counsel and ominous warning
in relation to obscure disturbances in
one or two of the sultan's provinces.
These soon brought forth their natu
ral fiuits in the congenial atmosphere
created by internal jealousies, .bach
one of tbe great powers had. its particu
lar interests to serve, and in the cases of
Russia and Jngiand theso wera best
protected by the defeat of the ambitions
ana aesires oi tne otner. jttuasia recog
nized the revolt of Herzegovina and
Bosinia, the "beginning of the end" of
"the Bick Man," and strove to fan the
war name into a connagratlou that
would envelop tho entire Turkish em
plre in Europe and drive the Moslems
across the .Bosporus. The czar was
even willing to take possession of the
smoking ruins of Stamboul as payment
in full of- all the' coat of winning such a
desirable winter residence. Baseian
emissaries were busy in the revolted
provinces giving encouragement and
substantial aid to tbe peasant bands,
and many a soldier of tho crescent was
sent to the embraces of the houris of the
Mohamadan paradise with a bullet in his
breast that was paiu lor out oi tne treas
ury at St. Petersburg. On tho other
hand England, with a vigilant eye to
the control of the key of the east, and
remembering the blood and treasure tx
pended so lavishly on the bights before
Sebastopol, filed an objection to tbe
Russian programme, and presented it at
Constantinople, set in grim framework
of bristling cannon from the broadsides
of her iron-clad fleets. Germany, believ
ing in her destiny and anxious to com
plete tbe unincation or her people under
one imperial standard, undertook the
rele of referee, but retired from the ring
temporarily it is supposed when
England spoiled the match by her bel
ligerant attitude. Austria, with only
one object in view, ana tnat self-preser
vation, iook an active cart in the coun
cil of emperor?, and by assuring the sut
tan of neutral sympathy ana furnishing
the insurgents with powder and bullets,
has kept tbe question open and, theie
fore retains a controlling influence in its
THE WORK OF DIPLOMACY,
The effect of this influence on the pro
gress of events has been to enabio all
parties interested to get roauy lortne ar
bitrament of war. in reality tne condi
tions arising out of the presentation of
the Andrassy note and its withdrawal at
the instance of England have been
equivalent only to a stay of proceedings
which was to extend over juat such time
as certain power.ul patties in the caee
needed for preparation for a vigorous so
lution by the ordeal of battle. We have
seen how the hopes of the Turks and the
insurgents uavz dcoh alternately raised
and depressed by the great powers,in or
der to restrain both from any precipita
tion of a regular organized warfare until
the said great powers were ready to t&ce
advantage of the results.
This State has been held in check by
threats and promises until Ru?slan army
corps were massed in Bessarabia, and the
military frontier of Austria was occupied
by her swarming battalions. The large
standing army of Germany places her
in a position of constant readiness for
tbe most threatening condition of af
fairs, and England's great Armada is
within a few houis' sail of the Golden
Horn. It would be absurd to imagine
Ssrvia attacking the Turkish power sin
gle handed, and with limited resources.
The aid of Montenegro, a petty and im
poverished little State, with an area of
only one thousand live hundred and fifty-two
mi! o?, cannot be counted on to
influence the struggle. Even an upris
ing of tbe Turkish dependencies in Eu
rope, unaided by some one of the mighty
empires that almost surround that coun
try, would fail to overthrow the sultan's
power, so that we may infir, with safe-
ty,ti.at tne warnue movement or nervia,
crhlch has now become one of active
hostility in the field, is not a part of tbe
game that must result in the disruption
of the Tuikish empire Jn Europe.
THE CONTENDING ARMIFS.
The forcss that will open the Turke-
Servian war are bo dlepropoitioned in
relative strength that we must soon
exp:ct to learn of Austrian and Bu33ian
corp3 across the respective front ers.of
both countries. The former, as in the
time of the Crimean war, to protect her
interests by occupying strategic points
in the Danubian provinces, and the lat
ter to watcn tne movements oi tue Aus
trian army. According to the law of
1869, military service is obligatory on all
the male Mohammedan subjects of the
sultan. Recruiting is accomplished by
the engagement of volunteers and by
conscription. The term cf service in
the Turkish army is twenty years, of
wbjch four, are spent in tbe regular active
army, two yea s in the first reserve, six
years in the second reserve, and eight
years in tbo militia or landwehr. The
army Is divided into three parts, namely;
the regular army, tne irregular troops,
and the auxiliaries. The law above
named fixed the strength of the army at
700,000 men until 1878. Of this force
the regular army numbers 150,000 men,
the fi-'St reserve 70.G09 men, and the
second r serve 420.000 men, rendering an
annual quota of 37,500 men nesesscry to

THE DEFENSE OF THE DANUBS.
The gunboats of the Tuikish fleet
have ascended the Danube above Wid
dfu, and are said to be threatening even
Belgrade itself with bombardment.
This floating force is comparatively
small, and will probably be compelled to
retire; but in order to guard agatcst any
future attempts of tho Turks In this di
rection the Servians propose to torpedo J
the Danube, and It has even been pro
posed to obstruct the river at the Iron
Gatee, so as to lender them entirely im
passable. The following extraot from
the correspondence published in theLon-
don ticanaara aescrioes ine prepara
"If the telegrams are to be believed
which say that some Turkish gunboats
are cruising off Widdeu, between that
aud Negotin, the struggle ia entering on
quite a new phase. From Widdln it is
but a few hours' steaming distance to
Belgrade, and the gunboats, if they have
come, either mean to menace mat city ,
or (o cover the movement of tne xuns
scross the river to invade Servia through
Negotin. The latter is, beyond a doubt,
Servia's weak point, but t till the attempt
on it wouid now be most hazardous,
and. If not successful, would mean a fear
ful disaster for the assailants. The
authorities at Belgrade, however, are by
no means unaware of the danger to the
city from a gunboat attack. When the
Turks gave over the fortress they gave
with it large stores of the very heaviest
smooth-bore bronze cannon, ail eight
inch or ten-inch calibre, some of them
throwing shot of mere than two bun
dred pounds weight. When I left about
four weeks ago ail the arrangements
were complete fur mounting these on
the river walls of the fortress overlooK
ing the Danube, and the same, will be
done, or now moat likely has been done,
on the side which commands the Soane.
Still it has not been forgotten that a
gunboat mdving quickly is but a small
mark, whereas the city, rising like a
small mountain at the junction of tbe
two rivers, is a very large one, and that
with long-range shells the houses would
get tbe worst of it, and it would be poor
consolation for the forts to hold their
own while the city was burning behind
them. To guard against this eventuality
an extensive system of
are being arranged beneath the waters
over which tbe gunboats must come to
do anything effectual. If It does, and
the Servians are driven to the last ex.
tremities, tbey are said to meditate a
vengeancs which is too bad to speak of
in temperate terras. .Nevertheless, it is
spoken .of by both civil and military en
gineers, who discuss guardedly, cer
tainly tho means of doing it, the
amount it would cost, the time it would
taKe, ana the number of tons of dyna
mite it would require. To explain what
x mean x must digress for a few lines.
Every one knows wbat a broad, deep
and rapid river the Danube is, but it
concentrates an its xorce ana tury below
the cataracts, at a pass called the iron
Gates. Here, opposite the small village
oi xicneviztna, u narrows irom a width
of a mile to about one hundred and
eighty yards wide, and with a depth, as
rar as can do ascertained from tbe vio
lence of the current, of from eight hun
dred to one thousand fathoms. The
mountains on either aide of this are very
loity nearly nve tnousana feet higa
but that on the Austrian side is a thou
sand feet higher, and on the river side is
nearly sherr for about three thousand
feet above the torrent. In fact, where it
is not perpendicular it rather overhangs
the water. When there is a verv low
Danube the sharp, craggy points
of sub-aqueous rocks begin to
show themselves abve the water, and
between these the passago is most nar
row, windlng and shallow, and, in fact,
can only be pas3ed by steamers espe
cially built for the purpose, of light
draught of water, four paddle-wheels.
and of immansa pjwar. At the break
up of last winter tnefloating Ice Jammed
among these crags, the waters backed
up, laying all tho Banatt and vast tracts
of Hungary under water. Such a del
uge was never known, and whether it
was the hideous ruin which this caused
first put it into the heads of the insur
gents I do not know all I do know is
that the mowing up of the precipice of
Mount Ssrieber (the Austrian side)
woul i bring down many millions of tons
of rock across the Iron Gites, and long
before the obstruction could be removed
a vast part of eastern Europe would be
turned into an inland lake." Such will
ba the desperate character of tbo war.
and there can scarcely be any doubt but
that civilizsd Europe must soon inter
fere and put a stop to tbe contest by re
moving the cau3e tha Ottoman power.

rather to load up. It was said some
weeks ago that the President, in conver
sation with a friend, had said that
during the remainder of his term he
hoped to be allowed to please himself.
If he goes on an attempt will be made
by the party leaders to distinctly sena
rate themselves and the party from his
acts, as a necessary means or seif-nra
servation. On Saturday morning tbe
White House organ contained several
charges of corruption and malfeasance
in office against Yaryan. One was that
he bad keptaBon of Commissioner Doug.
Iaa on the pay-rolls while that young
man was aosenc irom uuty. jsut it turns
out tnat nine days only after Mr. xar
y&n wss appointed he asked and ob
tamed the dismissal of young Douglas on
tne grounds stated in the following let
" Treasury Dep"t, OrriCE Int. Rev.,

' Hon. D. D. Pratt, Commissioner of Internal
" I have the honor to request that vou
will cancel the commission of Revenue
Agent George L. Douglas, to take effect
on the thirty-first instant. The duties
to which he is now assigned are of a
character more properly belonging to
the supervisor's office, and as he has had
no experience in other branched of the
service, he would be valueless as a reve
nue agent, for some time at least. Very
reapectiuuy, h. t. yaryan,

Another charge Is that Yarvan offered
for a bribe to conceal the evidence of the.
WMSKy irauas in at. Ijouis, as stated In
the testimony of Moore, published in
Baiuraay'a Meraia. The following of
ficial correspondence shows the entire
falsity of this charge:

Q, Was Mr. Yaryan ever in your

Yaryan has frequently been in my office
during the period that General Hawley
and others were in St. Louis that Ip,
between the first of May and the thir

quently I mean two or three times.
Q. State whether you ever had any
acquaintance with Mr. Yaryan prior to
the year 1875. A. I had not.
Q Have you any personal knowl
edge t. any other dishonest act com
mitted by Mr. Yaryan? A. I nave
never known of Mr. Ynryan's commit
ting any dishonest act; on the contrary,
my observation and experience of Mr.
Yaryan resulted in the conviction that
he woo a very aealous and faithful offi
cer. Q. Did you ever have a conversation
with Mr. C. S. Bell, and did you state
that Mr. Yaryan had, in your presence,
made dishonest propositions to distill
ers. A. Some time last fall the dis
trict attorney of Western Mississippi,
Mr. Dedrich, employed me to recover a
debt bare, and gave a C. S. Bell a let
ter of introduction to me, stating that
Ball vvas in the postal detective service
and would inform me where he could
seize tho money in the bank. He also
authorized me to deal liberallyi with. Mr.
Bell, and vjpon tb,e information glyen to

Soney, but J never had any canversa

v Aryan's compiaint against moore
In a letter to the President, dated
May 18, 1876, Mr. Yaryan, referring to
ma complaint against Moore, wrote:
"Although Mr. Moore was not a vol.
untary witness before that committer.
yet be did voluntarily circulate rumors
against me which probably came to the
ears of the committee and caused his
summons to testify. He was an officer
oi the treasury department, and if he
knew any facts could have called the
attention of the secretary or commis
sioner to them, and caused an inveati-
gallon which would either have crimin.
ated or exonerated me from his charges.
This he never did that I am advised of.
and yet he continued to circulate these
slanders ever since his first conversation
with Mr. Bell. In taking the course I
did in recommending the dismissal of
Mr. Moore, I never had a thought of
suppressing any investigation that my
superiors might choose to make. On
the contrary I court an Investigation.
and shall be happy to prove my inno
cence oi any corrupt practices before any

ignate, very respectfully,

ANOTHER GLIMPSE INSIDE.
Baltimore Gazette J
We venture to sav that when the
chapter of Bristow's retirement from
Grant's cabinet comes to be written, it
win oe rouna more disgraceful to the
administration than anv other excent.
perhaps, the safe burglary. The letter
oi uristow resigning bis position has not
been made public, and the grounds UDon
which he resigned are, therefore, not
kuowd; dui mere is every reason to ba-
lieve that it was because the President
was bent on saving the thieves that
Bristow was bringing to justice, and
that he is bent on perpetuating the ring
robberies that Bristow was trying to put
a stop to. mis gains additional proba
bility from the fact that the most effi.
cient of Bristow'a aids in his war upon
the whisky ring has been dismissed
with the most indecent haste, tho Presi
dent not caring anv longer to conceal
his hatred of Bristow and all who aided
him in his warfare upon rascality and
rascals. Yaryan was a most faithful and
efficient officer, and this was the cause
or nis dismissal, it is something worth
naving a letter line this:
"AVasiiikgton City, Juno 20, 1876.
My Dear Sib: Among the many per
sons employed In the treasury depart
ment during my term of service whose
frtithfalness and ability have been no
ticsable, none has rendered more effi
cient service than yourself. The duties
which you have been called upon to
perform have been peculiarly difficult
and delicate. Tha very nature of your
duties has, ol a necessity, provoked an.
tagonism, and invited the hostility of
those against wnom you were obliged to
decide: but you have met the responsi
biilties of your position with courage and
impartiality such as to challenge my
hearty admiration and approval. I beg
you to accept my thanks for the great
service ypu nave rendered, and my best
wishes ror your prospsnty and happi
ness. Very truly, yonrs,
"B. H. BRISTOW.
"Mr. H. T. Yaryan, Internal revenue bureau."
Mr. Bristow doubtless expressed a bit
ter truth when he said, "The very
nature of your duties has. of necessity,
provoked antagonism and invited the
hostility of those against whom yon
were obliged to decide." In that Bris
tow has written his own case. He fought
thieves, and thus became Grant's foe.
But Yaryan was accused of "malicious
ly" prosecuting the whisliy thieves.
The President sent for him and accused
him of this. Yaryan replied: "Mr.
President, name my accusers, and I will
tell you tne secret of their opposition to
me. If it is Senator Sargent, it is be
cause I have fought most earnestly to
break up the whisky ring fostered by
him in the Pacific slope. Is it Senator
Logan? I can give you the political
ramification of his supporters and the
best of reasons why they hate me. Is it
either of these?" asked Yaryan. The
President made no reply. The President
does not want to know the story of the
jobberies of Sargent or Logan. He
wishes them to be protected; and be
wishes to punish tho3e who seek to ex-
Jiose their iniquities and bring them to
