As regards tho armament ot this hure
lorce (the liu-sian army), it is far from
uniform. The infantry lias two dilTrrcti
kinds of muskets, some corps haying th
licrdan rifle, others the Kruka musket
hach man Is supposed to ko into action
with sixty rouud of ammunition. It has
been recently ordered that an amtuuni
tion cart, with reserve ammunition
should follow every battalion Into the
field. A cart carry ins a few trenching
tools is attached to each company. Ihe
armament of the cavalry is peculiar to
llu'sia. In every corps, w ith theexcep
tion of tho dragoons, the first rank are
armed with lances aud revolvers; the
second rank have neither lance nor re
vol ver, but a llerdan rille. The dragoons
alone have the Kruka musket. The Cos
sacks are armed with hmce, saner and
musket. 'Ihe men armed with rill
have twenty rounds ol ball cartridne
those armed with revolvers only eighteen
ihe training oi the iiussian army
leaves much to be desired, aud the drill
seems in a transition state between the
close order of former days and tho loose
formation which long-range firearms
have rendered necessary. The men are
fairly trained in niarkmanship. Their
tang Jrotd is admirable their movements
are possibly not rapid, but they will fol
low their officers anywhere with unques
tionable docility, will take good aim and
not tire without orders. Whoever en
counters them will have to deal with a
formidable toe. Nevertheless, there is
unquestionably a falling od la the rigid
bearing, in the smart performance- of
movements mat useu lormeriy to do a
characteristic feature of the lluslan
intaiitry. There Is, perhaps, a little too
much of the r rench iaier-allcr ; and, as
regards the drill for action iu loose order,
It s performed without eithtr the precis
ion or the da.rh of the Jrussian or Aus
trian urmies. Jtespecting the cavalry, all
that can be said Is that the addition of
the Cossacks has deprived it to some ex
text ot Us gallant and soldierly bearing.
The regulars have learned from the Cos
sacks their bad habits. The teams ot the
artillery are excellent, and tlie move
ments rapid. There Is. however, a great
dearth vl men able to lay a gun. The
distinction between divisional and corps
artillery appears to be unknown.

The Washington correspondent of the
Cuurier-Journal savs i The long-stand
ing question of the raids ot the Mexican
cattle thieves upon tho Texas border
formed a promlncut topic ot discussion
at the cabinet meeting to-day. it ap
pears that the&u robberies aro on the
Increase, and do steps are being
taken by the . American authorities
to abate them. A decisive resolu
tion was reached by the cabinet,
which, if carried out, will soon bring
matters to a head. It ws agreed that
Secretary Lvarts should notiiy the Mex
ican government that, if Mexico could
not stop these raids, the American gov
ernment would undertake to do it, snd,
it necessary would follow tho raiders
into Mexican territory. General Ord,
who commands on the border, is of the
opinion that this is tho only tllectual
way of ending these outrages.
