active canvass and it ii attricting
much attention outside of the district.
The Little Bock Gatette tayi: "Mr.
James Fhelaq, chief owner of the
Memphis Avalanchf, tnd one df the
ablest young men in Tennessee, is a
Democratic candidate for Congress
from the Tenth Congressional District.
Hie leading opponent Is Mr. James M.
Hatrif, a young man of recognised
ability, . who was defeated aa Demo
cratic nominee in 1831 by Zch Taylor,
Republican. There will be a close
contest for the nomination, and a hot
fight afterward for election. Taylor
will be tbe Republican nominee."

1ST A.
The removal of Alexander, of Bal
gaila, by RnsBla Is naturally attracting
great attention in Earope, and tikon
ia connection with ths closing of lbs
lree port of Batoum, is regardod as en
dangering the maintenance of peace.
The only power that appears likely to
object strong'y to the outrage is Eng
land, but England's bands are Mod.
The Irish difficulty is in its way, and
that impediment Is stronger than ever
before owing to the measures expected
from the Tory government, and from
the revival of the odious system of
evictions. But this ia not tho only
shackle upon any epirlted policy by
England, is a very intelligent article
in the New Orleans Picayune points
out, referring to the threaten'
ing attitude Russia is assuming
with respect to Afghanistan, of which
the Arr-KAi on Thursday last gave an
account. Ait'gbanisUn is tbe ally of
England, and tho Russians are now
c'almina territory mverned by Af
ghanistan, and which that people re
fuse to surrender. This may lead to
hostilities, and if England interlerea
with Russia's doings in Bulgaria, Rus
tie will distract its attention to pro
ducing new troubles north of Afghan
istan. The strategy ol Russia holds
England as in a net. To garrlton Ire
land with regiments to enforce co
ercion and evictions and keep down
revolution, and to carry on a war in
Afghanistan also, will be rather more
than even English powtr tan cope
with. Eaglanl has a comparstlTaly
small population to draw its soldiers
from ; Rueaia has exhanstlets millions.
Beside, Raiaia has etcared approaches
to tbe neighborhood of Afghanistan
by a railway that will be finished
by November, and by aid of
wbicb, and of steamboats, troops can
be quickly removed from Petersburg
itself to the head waters of the Oxus,
in tbe neighborhood where tv.e terri
tory Russia claims is sitnatsd. Fog
land has began a railway intended to
reach Herat. It has not been con
structed with the speed tbe Raes'acs
have shown, however, acd only by
crossing lofty mountains conld Kn
gllsh Afghanistan reach the country
Russia ii threatening to seize. The
latter have strengthened themselves
by winning the aid of Khan oi Ba
daksban. This chief is now nnder the
Afghan Government, but desires to be
free of it, and so support) the Russian
claims. Badaksban is on tbe eastern
most portioa of the country lying be
tween thsOxns and tne Hindoo Kueh ;
its extout Is about 2CO miles east and
weft, and ISO miles norib and smth.
It has mountainous turnouts on the
Hindoo Kuh atiajning a h'ght of
15,000 feet. Tbe aspect of matters, it
will bo seen by these details, is not
favorable it the continuance of pee,
and the position of Lapland is espe
cially embarrassing, while Kuesian
tactics appear every whote to be suc
cessful, and thir ultimate object is
tbe possesion of Oonstantinople.

The address in reply to tbe Queen's
speech was continned this evening.
Sir Thomas Esmonds (Hems Ru'er)
"3 welt upon the hardships of the Irish
farmeis. Their produce, he said, was
unsalable and It was thereforea cruel
barbarity for the landlords to exact
rents. It was a sound economio doc
trine tbat when profits Irjm land di
minished all concerned should bear
tbe lon, not the farmers alone.
William Redmond (Katitnaiiit) said
it was ueelefs to diecuns a land ecu la

landlords would be allowed to evict
tenants for not paying imprtmlble
rents, win tber the English would al
low tho Irish t) be cost into the road
sids daring tbe coming winter. If tbe
result was bloodshed, misery and out
rages, tne responsi unity woua rest
with the government, whose only pan
acea was the appointment of a royal
commbs'on.
Mr. Ba four, Secretary for Scotland,
arc mod Mr. I'arnell of trying to' make
government impossible by promoting
a general anti-rent s .rike. The Par
nellitee, he said, did nnt wish a settle
ment between landlords and tenants,
but wished ts keep open tbe agrarian
sf re.
Mr. Stuart, nn behalf of tbe
democrats of England, denounced
evic ions, and said that the democrats
would not tolera'e tosrclon. Ireland
mustbs aut'inomour.

that the Indians were apprehensive of
trickery cn tbe part of the Mi xicuns
em lnlonmd by Gen. Jonrs that he
has diracted his officials to offer only
terms of unconditional surrender, the
same as our officers require. All re
port tne Indians much worn out and

The Next Bond Cull.
V BHiNUTON. AuBUBt 23. There
will be snother bood call of $15,0110,-
0CO within a few days. It may rot
me before tee 1st cf September, but
f no' it will certainly come soon afrer.
An official who is close to Acting Sec
retary Fairchild, and who is aeqiuint-
a witn n s pians, said today:
Money is pouring into tbe Treanry
much f'tster than was expected a'
month ago, and it would mm ply be
riminal not to be payina on tbe debt.
Impoitat'ous have been much heavier
thin was expected, and the internal
revenue tax is very heavy. There is
no danger of any shortage in tbe
Treasury, and tbe people evidently
demand that the bonds be called."
"Dies Mr. Fairchild doth s on his
own responsibility?"
wen, he can decide it, ot coats',
so long as he is acting Secretary, but
as a mut'er of fact he is acting in ac
cord with the President's wiehes, ard
he is ia onttant co-respondence with
ocretary Manning."
"Is lreasurer Jordan opposed to
tecs calls?"
"He knows very little about them.
Ho has not particularly bc-n consult
ed. He went to the Hot Springs, in
North Carolina, the day before the
$10,0(i0 000 cull was made, aad he has
not written anything officially upen
the subject since he left. As a matter
of fact, I cupp s, he is not in favor of
tho calls, but hi dots not pio; ose to
interpose any serious objections."
"Will tbtse calls make money morj
pl.nj acd easy?'1

A STAB1L1SG STORY.
TheSnlclde of Dr. L I.. Bitting, of
Bnltlioore.
Baltimore, Md., August 25. The
causes leading to the suicide of LK
Li. L. Bitting, son of the Rev. Dr.
Bitting, Traveling .Secretary ol tbe
Baptist Boari of Missions, were ac
first suppoaed to bs disappointment in
lovo and passion for strong drink.
Now, however, a staitllng story is told
in connection with the yonng man's
suicide, A close ot.fidential Mend
ol .the Doctor tells tbe fo'lowirg
as the reason of the yonng
physician's desire ta die.Q!About
year ago ns msde Uie acquaintance
of a young lady well known in tbe
: - . . i !!,. v.
prouiiueui. circle ui aucieiy iu wuiku us
moved. Their acquaintance coon
ripened inti affrclioo, and after a
brief period relations of tbe closest
personal intimacy were maintained
between the two. Trie result of this
was that the yourg woman became
enceinte. Frightened at the prospect
of the disgrace that would overwhelm
her shonld she Income a mother, she
prevailed upon the doctor to perform
en abortion. The operation was nit
tuccesaful, and for a long time tbe
young woman's conditio! was ex
tremely critical. Tbe dector loved tne
woman and broadid oyer a pox-ibls
fatal termina'ion of ber illness. He
wa in one of thoe despondent nnods
on Saturday. Tbe hither of tbe girl
knew nor'su'pected nothing of the
relations between his daughter and
tbe doctor, but; thorgit sb.9 was ill
from aa entirely diffjier.t ems'. Dnr
inga relapse in tho young woman's
condition tie father he6tuy sent for
ths doctor to cimo lo h's house, siy
ing that his daughter vas eppaieutly
dsing. Tbe dcc'or became grja'lr
alarmed, and immtd'at:fy juonped
to the conilasioo tbat the young
woman had corjasfed everything.
Believing that sho Lad done B", and
realizing that bis reputation wou'd
be blasted, acd that, with fear
ful prospest of'bsing arreetsd and
tried for causing bis loved one's ilealli,
he did what no doubt appealed to be
tho best thing ti do undf r tbe circum
stances he killed himee f. Bat eventi
have row pmved that hh ;ife una but
anidl9 saeriSce, becausa tbo joung
woman hss greatly improved, and is
now in a fair way to recover. Ths
news of his suicide has been kept care
fully from her, and htr fa'her does

GIRLS AND THEIR BABY STARE.

Cloveland Journal: Tbe baby s'sr
is all tha rage in Cleveland among
young gentlewomen who have been
annoyed by the iiupertii ent cg'ing of
ignorant young men. For example,
three young society belies enter a
street car, and on taking their re-its
tluy find theinsrtlves contrjLtfd by
three or more candy dudes, who ut

them tbat there is some meaning in

is the first time that tbey have met
with tbe "baby stare," and they are at

to meet it with comnoeure and retnrn

failure of it. They make the effort
again and acain, but with no better
results: the nxed. unchangeao e and

whether it include! them in its view
they cscnot determine. Then they
