From its usa many an tittiicted sutferer has been

More Mormon Troubles.
Whatever credence mav be civen to
particular rumors from tJcah, says the
New York Tribune, it is sufficiently cer
tain that in various parts of that terri
tory an uneasy feeling is existing among
the JVlornions, which Kngnam loungis
doing nothing to allay. Indeed, his
public utterances, if they are correctly
represented, are anything but pacific,
lie is said to be preaching a crusade,
which the Gentiles of the territory natu
rally regard as preached against them
selves. Of course, compared with Mor
mon population, they are a mere
handful, and they may well indulge in
some apprehension of violence. In .Salt
Lake (Jityc specially they are greatly out
numbered. We are lurther informed
that the military preparations of the
Mormons are considerable ; that drilling
is going on continually, and that arms
have been shipped in great numbers from
Brigham Young and his more unscrup
ulous devotees are doubtless laboring
under great apprehension. The vigor
displayed in the trial and execution of
Lee has proved conclusively that the
temporal power in Utah is no longer in
the hands of the Latter Day Saints. We
do not know precisely what they may
have to fear, but their record, as they
know better than anybody else can, is
quite enough to make them anxious.
Their power and authority, once so great
and almost unquestioned, are gone.
Assassination will not help them, while
they are no longer, as they once were,
defended by distance and great deserts
from the weight of the government's
hand. It is hard to see what they can
hope ultimately to accomplish by a com
plete defiance of the federal power, or by
a resort to the madnesB of massacre. But
there is an unreasonable because it is a
fanatical element in the Mormon popu
lation, which has not been sufficiently
taken into account. It is just possible
that Young himself may have been made
reckless by a term so prolonged of irre
sponsible authority. Greater men than
he have lost their heads under difficulties
But whatever may be impending, we
may b sure that the beginning ot the
end is near. If the Mormon leader, con
tenting himself with a spiritual despot
ism, shall finally yield obedience to the
laws, he may die quietly in his bed, and
his sect may peacefully disappear after
him. If he permits himself to be misled
inte sanguinary acts which will be sheer
madness, he will be- summarily and
sternly dealt with. His vanity may mis
lead him into an exaggerated estimate of
his resources and of his local advantages ;
but to those who consider them with in
difference they do not seem great enough
to be alarming. The United States
wants neither the will nor the power to
deal strictly and summarily with the
Mormcn strength, such as it is; and we
believe that it will do so.
Much of the happicesa of life depends
on our outward demeanor. We have
experienced the charm of gentle and
courteous conduct ; we have been drawn
irrestibly toward those who are obliging,
affable and sympathetic in their demeanor.
The friendly grasp, the warm welcome
the cheery tone, the encouraging word,
the respectful manner, bear no small
share in creating the joy of life, while
the austere tone, the stern rebuke, jthe
bharp and acrid remark, the cold and in
different manner, the curt and disre
spectful air, the supercilious and scornful
bearing, are responsible for more of hu
man distress, despair and woe than their
transient natures might stem to warrant.

THE EUROPEAN CRISIS.
An Interview w!lk Jeoree II. Holier.
MinlKter lo liuidn.
Hn. George H. Eoker, United States
minister to the court of Russia, kindly
accorded an interview to a representa
tive of the Philadelphia Press, the sub
ject discussed being the present state of
Europe. The long -residence of Mr.
Boker abroad, his intimate familiarity
with the leading statesmen f the old
world, his acquaintance with the causes
which result in the diplomatic moves on
the European chess board and his recent
presence in the theater so soon to be the
scene of the most portentous events, all
combine to render his views deeply in
teresting at the present time. That
Europe is on the veige of a struggle, the
most terrific in history, is, in brief, the
conclusion to which one is forced after
hearing a critical survey"of the situation.
In reponse to the writer's request for
his opinion as to the probable duration
of the war as it at present exists, Mr.
Boker said : " I do not think it will last
long. Russia will carry every thing be
fore her, providing Turkey does not find
an ally or allies. I have "the opinion of j
a distinguished officer in the Turkish

service as to tnat. lie says man tne
Turkish forces are in no condition to re
sist the advance of an army directed in
accordance with the scientific principles
of modern warfare, and that if unassisted
by any other nation Turkey will rind the
Russian army in Constantinople within
The officer to whom Mr. Boker re
ferred, whose name is not given for
obvious reasons, has a world wide repu
tation, and his views on the subject are
those of an authority whose reliability
cannot be gains-aid. Mr. Boker's opin
ions, given in the conversation which
followed, justify the following remarks
on the present, struggle: iue aim ui
Russia was primarily the amelioration of
the condition of the Christians under the
rule of the sublime porte. This was the
object of the war at the beginning ; what
will be the ultimate ena remains ior me
future to disclose. But as to Russia ac
complishing her ambition of becoming
permanent mistress or tonstaniinopie,
that is another question. To this neither
Austria nor Germany would submit, for
the reason that it practically closes the
free navigation of the Danube to the
outer world. Without the freedom ot
the Bosphorus and the Dardanelles the
commerce of the Danube is closed ex
cept to the Black sea. It is, however,
not improbable that a mutual unuer-
standing has been arrived at between
Russia and Germany, and this surmise ib
confirmed by certain events which trans
pired before the Russian declaration of
1 . i ii i
war. Ihe tferman cnancenor uas never
. . , r l t"'
given up the mea oi crusning r ranee.
The wonderful recuperation of the
French nation after the peace of ersail-
les, the rapid reorganization of the army
and the certainty that the struggle would
be renewed at some future day all
these have been taken into consideration
at Berlin. Germany to-day is one vast
camp ; it is stronger than ever before,
and better fitted for war; but this has
been . accomplished at the cost of pros
perity. While Franca is growing rich
Germany is be com in e poor by reason of
the vast armies, the expense of which is
draining the wealth of the nation to its
dregs. This sort of thing cannot go on
forever, and the German chancellor sees
this as plainly a3 anybody else. The
army is there for an object, and that ob
ject "is to so thoroughly crush France
that all ideas of revenge by " le grand
natien" will be completely out ot the
question for a generation or two. Ger
many could not carry out this plan had
Russia been at peace, for the Emperor
Alexander, when, the subject was
broached to him, would not hear of it.
And it is a fact that but for his firmness
and decision the Germans would have
declared war long ago. Hence, in order
to effectually dispose of Russia, Ger
many was obliged to wait until that
power became involved with Turkey, and
to effect this the German ambassador
spared no pains in urgiDg upon the Rus
sians the fact that Germany wculd not
interfere with any programme the czar
would undertake to carry out. But so
thoroughly was the reason for this un
derstood at the Russian court, that when
on one occasion the German ambassador
was. speaking to the emperor onhe sub
ject, his emperial majesty turned his
back and refused to hear any rroie. But
another most important factor two oth
ers, indeed must be taken into consid
eration. The readers of the Press have been
made familiar with the excitement and
alarm which prevailed in England. It is
urged by the liberals that the conserva
tive government are permitting the coun
try to repeat i's experience under Palm
erston, "to drift to war." The latter
phrase, which is so familiar to everybody
who is at all acquainted with English
politics, exactly expresses .England's dan
ger. It is well known to all newspaper
readers that Englands aversion to Russia
arises from the real or fancied dangers to
which Muscovite successinTurkey would
expose British India. But it is not known,
except to those in possession of diplo
matic secrets, that oh a former occasion,
when Russia contemplated an attack on
Turkey, the government of the czar, in
order to quiet the apprehensions of the
British cabinet, suggested that if Eng
land felt any doubts as to Russia's sin
cerity in declaring that she had no sin
ister designs in India, the British could
take possession of Egypt, thereby secur
ing to themselves the much coveted ab
solute control of the Suez canal. It
need scarcely be said that if this arrange'
ment has not been carnea into enect it
has not been forgotten by British states-'
men, and that they will not be slow to
act upon it should occasion seem to jus
tify them. Now that Russia does threaten
British communication with India, and
thus, as the English believe, imperil their
interests, England cannot long remain an
impassive spectator. It is, no doubt,
this uncertainty as to the action of the
latter power which prevents Germany
acting at once against France. For, in
order to preserve the balance ot power in
Europe, England and Austria could not
consistently stand by and see France
crushed by her mighty foe without strik
ing a blww in her defense. And this
action would not beentirely disinterested,
for neither of them would be sure,
France once hopelessly beaten, which ot
them would next feel the iron heel of
the tremendous military power of this
most despotic ruler of Europe. It is
impossible to tell what turn events may
take in the next few days. If, happily,
the war can be confined to Eussia and
Turkey, the danger will be over, for the
present. But once let Germany give the
signal for another march on Paris and all
Europe will be ablaze with a conflict so
mighty that empires must be obliterated
before peace shall reign again ; the long-
expectea nurDpean crisis has.amved and
the nations of the old world stand aghast
at the spectacle in which they may so
soon be called upon to play a part Jor
life or death.
A Panorama ef the War.
This is a street scene in Kars. We
don't know who seen it, but we know it
was saw. Probably some Russian czar
it. Tbe city is in a state of siece.
The gentleman in the foreground, feeling
over nis neaa ior tne ground, is a private
gentleman in a Cossack regiment. He is
not feeling very well. He is ill. A mo
ment ago he met a fifteen-inch shell, and
was too busy to get out of the way. His
stomach, lungs, and tiwallowine thing
went on with the shell, and he will never
smile and never enjoy a square meal
again. His comrades wish to send for
the doctor. Tie declines. He says he
does not need him. He is right. He
can die without him. The doctor will
weep when he learns the Cossack is dead
He will bend over his lifeless form, and
then he will weigh it, and put it in an
item, to the last ounce, as a tumor he
removed from a gentleman in Scott
county. Truly, in the midst of life we
are in death.
The gentleman in gunny-bag trousers
and a long pipe is a Turk. He is the
friend of the American journalist who
uses him to make puns of. He will not
last much longer at the rate the Ameri
can journalist is using him up. Tins is
all that anybody knows about the Turk
or Turkey. Move tbe panorama on.
That is a Russian geueral. See the
wide landscape stretching away in the
dim distance. Let herstretch it doesn't
cost us anything. You cannot see the
Russian general for his name, but he's
there all the same. You can smell his
reath. He eats tallow candles. This
makes him light-hearted. His name
comes in by the big rock on the left, fol
lows the course of the meandering
brook in the valley, winps slowly up the
mountain side, and disappears in the
direction, of Ulpblowitch. It is nine
miles long, without titles. When his
mother used to call him up to breakfast,
she started at nine o'clock p. m., took a
long breath, and talked it oft till morning.
This is a telegraph office. The bright
looking young man at the table is a
Western Union operator. The little
brass and steel thing tickingaway on the
table is the instrument. The operator
is very easily distinguished from the in
strument. He cannot talk so fast as the
instrumeat, but he can sleep a great deal
more. He is goiiig to sleep now. The
man leaning over the counter is a heart
less citizen, who has the cheek to ask
the operator to send a dispatch for him.
The operator takes the message. But he
does net send it. He hasn't time. Helases
nine games of checkers while that citizen
s w ondering why he doesn't get any re
ply to his dispatch. Then the citizen
starts out to walk to the place and sees
the man. He finds him, and, soon after
they meet, the dispatch comes along.
The citizen remembers and recognizes it.
He is affected to tefrrs. The operator
finds him, and charges him forty cents
for sending the message, forty-five cents
for the wear and tear ef the instrument,
fifty cents for the strain on the nervous
system, sixty cents for collecting rate on
message, sixty-live cents on general prin
ciples. He learns afterward that the
citizen yet has some money left, and he
is going back in the morning to borrow
it of him.

An awful calamity occurred at Little
York. Cortlandt county, iNew lorx, a
station on the Syracuse and Binghamp-
tmr-railread. The depot building, a story
and a half structure, was in charge of
Frank Dunnigan, a trackman, who lived
in a part of it with his family. Dun
nip-an started a fire in the stove down
stairs between five and six o'clock in the
morning, and then went to a barn across
two tracks, and some distance away. He
was accompanied by his wife. Their
children, five in number, were left asleep
in tbe upper story. The parents had
been at the barn but a few minutes when
they ditcovered that the upper part of
the depot was in flames. Both rushed to
the building and attempted to get up
stairs to rescue their children, but the
flames had gathered such headway as to
prevent the ascent ef the agonized
parents, and the unfortunate little ones
were roasted alive.
Mre. Dunnigan was seriously burned
in the nice, and her husband was com
pelled to nse force to prevent her from
perishing with the children, in a hopeless
effort to Bave their lives. The poor
mother and father could hear their little
ones calling for help, and- the situation
was heartrending in the extreme. The
oldest of the five children was but eight
or nine years old.

The Kins or Ihe Tnrr-llla Grnt Knee at
The spring meeting of 1877 of the
Louisville Jockey Club closed yesterday
as brilliantly as it has begun. The at
tendance was nearly as large as on any
previous day of the meeting, Ten Broeck
being the chief attraction. The weather
was remarkably fine from the oneniner
day until tbe watches stopped on the
last race. The principal events have
been the victories over time bv Me-
Whirter and Courier for two miles, and
Ten Broeck for one and two milts. The
track lias been thoroughly demonstrated
to be the fastest in America ; and the
great concourse of visitors from abroad
expressed a unanimous sentiment of
gratification at the sport offered and the
TEX BROECK'S FIXAL TRIUMPH.
The ''grandest horse that ever pressed
the turf," Ten Broeck, yesterday closed
his racing career in another splendid
victory over time. The track had been
prepared expressely for him, and when
he cainfrom his stable, in company with
St. Louis and Necy Hale, his stable com
panions, he was greeted with a rincincr
cheer , fi om the inmichfrc assemblage of
weli-wisbing spectators. Ten Broeck
tsok a preliminary gallop around the
course under blanket, and, when brought
to the stand to saddle, seemed in excel
lent condition for his effort aerainst the
record, 3:32i for two miles. He was
started nearly at the one-eighth pole,ard,
witn !st. .LOuis at his side, sped away on
the road to glory. Billy Walker, who
was in the pig-skin, was instructed to
make the first mile in 1:45. and this
necessitated hard work from the jump.
Thev srot awav at a ranid rate. Thew
reached the quarter in 2b, the half in
52; the three quarters in 1:18, St. Louis
close at the hero's side. As they bound
into the stretch, "ecy Hale began can
tering forward, and joined len Broeck at
the string, St. Louis dropped out of the
race. Ihe mile was made in 1.44'.. and
Mr. Harper, who was assisted by Mr. J.
T. Williams, shouted to Walker to let
the horse go for all that was in him.
Necy Hale was unable to maintain the
extraordinary pace which Ten Broeck
now cut out. She kept company with
him as far as the quarter : which was
passed in 2.09J, but was behind him at
the half, which was reached in 2:35.
As they rounded the turn, horse never
ran as len liroecfc then. Ihe three-
quarter's pole flew by thorn like a bolt
from a catapult, the flag falling as the
watches indicated the remarkable time
of 3:01, and Ten Broeck came springing
down the home-stretch, having bid ecy
Hale farewell. When the first mile was
run, the crowd with difficulty restrained
its enthusiasm at president Clark's sug
gestion, but now as Mr. Williams ran
toward the horse waving his hat to urge
the jockey to put the gallent steed to his
mettle's extreme, a wildburstof applause
went up to the skies, and Ten Broeck
crossed the score with the spectators in
an uproar " Two, twenty-six !" "Two,
twenty-eight I " He beats Mc-
Whirter I' "rah for Harper! and
other ejaculations of a similiar nature
were heard among the yelling throng
around the reporter's desk. In a mo
ment Mr. Green stepped from among the
time-keepers and taking the figure -'7"
held it up to view. Then there was
some lively excitement. The time was
directly known to be 3:27i, and every
body was happy, and even General
Buf'ord felt prettv well, thank you
President Clark then turned to the
audience and announced that len Broeck
had now made the fastest four miles,
three miles, two miles, one mile on
record, and that Ten Broeck had run his
last race and would now retire to the
stud. Mr. Harper was introduced, and
made his lient bow to the applauding
host. Ten Broeck's record now reads:
For four miles 7:15J, September 27,
1876; for three miles, 5:25f, September
23,1876; for two miles,3:27i, May 29,

J. WILKES BOOTH.
The Abaord Nlory about hi Rrinalni
OBroverled-la4leultn of their
Identification nnd Dellvcrr
to tola Friends.
A number of absured stories are going
tbe rounds of the press as to the disposi
tion of the remains of J. Wilkes Booth.
The latest is by Captain Oliver P. Ieslie,
of Pittsbnrg, who states that the body
was sunk in a lake seven miles
below Alexandria, Virginia. The in
controvertible facts are as follows:
The remains were ordered to be
delivered to the friends of Booth by
President Andrew Johnson. John H.
Weaver, the undertaker, of this city, was
sent to Washington by his family to
bring them home for interment. A box
was taken up from the arsenal building
and delivered to him. It was brought
by him to Baltimore, and was examined
by him and a reporter of the Gazette at
his room on West Fayette street, near
Holiday. They found in it a skeleton
wrapped in an army blanket. When the
blanket was taken ofl the skeleton was
covered with a powder having the ap
pearance ot soap-stone, ana on being
rubbed between the fingers it disap
peared just as soap-stone will do. On
the ritrht foot was an army shoe, cut
open at the top its entire length, as if to
accommodate a swollen foot. The other
was a larere cavalry boot. The reporter
of the Gazette examined the bones in and
above the shoe, and for some time could
find no injury. Believing the remains
to be those of Booth, the reporter made
a persistent examination, and at last dis
covered the leg was fractured clean
through just above the ankle. The frac
ture was clearly marked, and the por
tion below the fracture being lifted out
of the box, the ends of the bones' were of
a pure whitness, leaving no doubt as to
the fact that Booth in leaping from the
box has fractured his right leg and not
sprained it. Still, the identity of the
remains were not satisfactorily estab
lished, especially as there was no portion
of the spinar vertebras missing and no
mark of any bullet upon them. A
brother of Booth was sent for, who was
told by Mr. Weaver as to the doubts as
to the identity of his remains, and Mr.
Weaver requested him to think of some
peculiarity, if any existed, in the struc
ture of his brother that would forever
remove any doubt. After thinking for a
brief while, the brother said that all he
could remember was that his brother
had his tooth plueged with gold in a
peculiar manner. He described the lo
cation of the tooth, and drew with a
pencil the shape of the plug, which was
ot unuBuai size, ine teem were laneu

The English are somewhat alarmed at
the danger which their great ironclads
would run 'n time of war from torpedoes
like the Whitehead torpedo. It is in
sisted that the British navy should jos
sess the newest and most varied meam ot
launching torpedoes of every kind
against the enemy. The Whitehead
torpedo can be directed against an
enemy's ship 1,001) yards, and in partial
darkness the vessel bearing it would be
able to approach any large ship without
danger. The simultaneous attack of
three torpedo boats would thus imperil
the safety of the most jiowcrful iron
clads. Purely defensive measures, such
as enveloping the ship with a skirt of
wire rets, must be of little avail. The
best means of defense is to give each
ironclad a couple of satellites in tho
shape of fast steam torjiedo buatu, armed
with light guns and carrying the White

Simon Wolf, of Washington, vice
president of the meeting, read the follow
ing letter from secretary of state, Evarts,
dated Washington, May 20th :
"I have to acknowledge the receipt oi
yonr letter of the first instant, in relation
to the hardships, outrages and ncrsccu
tionsot Isrealitesdwelling in the Turkish
provinces. In view of the oppression of
these unhappy people and ot the dangers
to which they are exposed, you appeal
to the department to instruct the United
States ministers and representatives near
the Turkish provinces to co-operate with
their colleagues in such measures as may
be desired for the relief and protection
of the Hebrews dwelling in the principali
ties, and you instance especially those in
Roumania. Much ol the misery r,ow .
being endured is inseparable from the
state of war in which the country is now
engaged The provinces are all .more or
less under inilitaty control, and it is
feared that the ordinary diplomatic
protests and representations cannot be
made, at present, as effective as u wished
by all tbom who desire to see right,
justice and humanity prevail In further
ance of your wishes, the department will
refer a copy of your letter to our m uihter
at Constantinople, with instructions to
take such action in the matter a will, in
his judgement, b best calculated to
secure an amelioration of the condition
of an oppressed people. I am, sir, your
" William M. ISvarta."
