First a West Point Cadet, then a Fugitive
Criminal, and then a Leader in the
Turkish Army His Career, as
Told lj One Who Knows.
Special Dispatch of the St. Louis Ulobe-
Chicaoo, Septenilier 5. Tlie world-
renowneu exploits ol tismaii rusiia,
tlie bero of the battle of Mevna, have
arousetl a little curiosity to know who
he is and something of Ins nntece
dents. Already speculation is rife as
to them, nnit several accounts nave
leen published purporting to give the
facts in the case. These, which make
of him a Tennesseean, bearing nis
American honors lightly upon bim
under tlie name of Roliert ('lay Craw
font, approximate very near the truth,
Understanding that (ieneral Jowepb H.
tiling of this remarkable individual,
your correspondent this morning call
ed upon bim, at bis office, on Wash
ington Street, anl subjected him to
an interview. He knew Crawford
well. In 1801 General Reynolds was
recruiting-lieutenant for the orty-
fourtb Illinois volunteers. In bis per
ejjrinations for recruits, be met, at
ilinintrton, on the nineteenth of uc
tolier. the subject of this memoir and
duly enlisted bim. He found straight
way that Crawioni understood milita
ry tactics better than He aid nimseir,
and intrusted bim with the drill of the
company, then taking lessons in the
science JLumseif, wnen secretly en
seoned within his tent. To account
for this knoweldge, Crawford was
necessarily compelled to admit the
soft impeachment that he had seen a
little of inside military life, having
lieen a cadet at est l'oint.
To keen the run of the illustrious
Turk's history it may be lest to as
sume a ken of bis proceedings from
the beginning, considering them pro
gressively rather than as a retrosiect.
lie it known, then, that among
the last official acts of
congressional life was to secure Craw
ford an appointment as a cadet to
est l'oint, trom tlie district ot len-
ncssee. crawiord was a native oi
Rogersville, Hawkins County, and
was at that time a bright, handsome,
inniilv lad ol seventeen, tlie date be-
intr about lH'kJ or 1851. His early edu
cation had lcen by no means neglect
ed, and be was prepared to pass a rigid
examination. He was a quick stu
dent, acquiring knowledge with ease
and raputtty,lntt a poor disciplinarian.
The result was that a reckless mode of
living at last secured his expulsion
from the confines of the ancient col
lege for militants. Crawford did not
tro home. On the contrary, he intend
ed to have a high old time seeing the
world, so be surrendered himself to
the wild tutoring of metroolitan life
in ew iorK. J his course of pro
cedure soon left him without finances, .
and his wonderful facility for proving
necessity the parent of invention, antl
invention this time was a home ex
pedieiicy. Accordingly be turned bis
race toward tne scenes or ins cmiu-
bood. He had progressed as far as
Wvtheville, Virginia, when at the
goodly tavern which afforded bun
cheer he encountered a wealthy cattle
dealer just returning with a bountiful
representation ot iiurter. Here was a
young man greatly in need of a small
amount of the world-lever, and there

loadcd with the same dire power.
With the broad idea or communism
surging in bis breast, Crawford real
ized that what was his brother s was
his. Night came, bringing slumber to
the old man; also came Crawford. As
the Cattle King slept, the present bero
of Plevna crept into bis room, and
shortly afterward stole out again.
That was all right antl regular. nen
the pale air of morning lieamed over
the adjacent hills, Mousiear, the Cat
tle Kiiig, encased himself in his gar
ments and looked about linn. He
found also that the band of the mid
night maurauder had strayed under
his pillow, and extracted ail or tne
sweets thereunder secreted. Craw
ford, be it said, had brought to the bo
tel a pretty woman. Saul woman was
not his wife. Her needs made it in
cumbent on bim to raise money. Very
well. Is it necessary to go into de
tails? Pointing out the old man's
suspicion, the arrests Hufftce it that
Crawford adorned tnereaiter a ceil in
the Richmond prison. It promised to
be a sad ending of a promising career.
One day Crawford held a valuable pa
per in bis hand. He proffered it to his
keener. Did that man know that
Crawford was one oi tne most expert
manipulators of a lien on earth, and
that the alleged pardon was nothing
made by the prisoner who tendered it?
It looked all right and the jailer was
satisfied. He threw oix-n his doors
and the ex-cadet inhaled a long breath
of pure, free air antl made for Jlarj1
land. A short distance from Balti
more be set himself upasa lKHlagogue,
nuder the name of Kolert Clay, and
onened a school. He dealt out the
same kind of learning that can Ik?
found at thousands of such schools in
Yankeedom. Among the pupils tin

Jt is needless to follow Russell through
thf tortuous row of intricate ngures
which lieset bis footstets, nor tell how
he nrogressed. He awoke one morn
ing fnin his slumbers to bear bis sister
and father liewailing the loss of two
irolil watches owned by them respect
ivelv. and to find that the dashing,
limidsonie schoolmaster was gone. No
tra of the three missing articles
could ever be found. The

was sounded, and Russell entered the
r-mksof the t'nion arniv. to lav down
his life for his country. Fate guided
iiim into tlie command of IJeutenant
Reynolds. There the thief and the
i-rti.Uil met. Under'thc peculiar cir
cumstances, it was deemed lest not to
arrest Crawford, though the matter

of him was on the Atlantic coast, re
was this: He woubi go to these eastern
towns ami hod now mticn woutu oe
tuiid for sulistitutes, and take a regular
list, until he bad quite a large number.
Then he would enlist his negroes, and
send the recruiting-list to Washington,
assigning the negroes to different
towns, receiving iay from the govern
ment and the municipal authorities as
weH. Ry this operation he made hun
dreds of thousands of dollars on bounty
receipts. TUeuext tbUig kuQwn of
him was when he turned up as colonel
of artillery, "colored, " at large. Near
the close of the war he got into some
trouble that is unknown to General
Reynolds, and was mustered out of
service in disgrace. He then went to
Mexico. Here his peculiar dash ami
aplomb received him immediate re
cognition, and be went into service
under Juarez. He remained here en
joying great eelat until the collapse of
the empire in 18i7. He tlven came

An Indignation Uoeting.
Tlie moon was shining into the
south windows of the bite House
when Mr. Hayes got up from his lied
in order to look at the clock. It was
nearly three in the morning, and he
hatl not yet slept. The ikhi was com
fortable enough, but what long, dreary
hours since eleven !
"God bless me," raid Mr. Hayas,
passing bis band wearily over bis
forehead. "I used to sleep like a top
He sat down in a chair antl tried to
think of his approaching journey
through the Southern States, and of
the sjieeches to lie made along the
way. lie would take rx-hurz along
this time, but not Key. It would not
lie politic to take Key. Key's iieculiar
humor would not Ihj appreciated in
Tennessee and in Virginia. In intro
ducing Scbnrz to audiences in the
Southern States, he would speak of
bim as a man who had fought tin the
wrong side at Gettysburg and slse-
where, but who had seen the error of
bis wavs, antl was now prepared to
acknowledge bis mistake in the pres
ence of his ex-Confederate lircthren.
"I will quote Scripture," thought Mr.
Hayes, "when 1 introduce Schurz,
and I will say " Rut his mind was
not in trim for continuous thinking.
It wandered I tack to Evarts and the
Green Mountains, and to Stotighton,
and to Judge Jerry Black, and then
to the unwelcome memory of the Elec
toral Commission. And the clock on
the mantel, its rapid liendulum strokes
oppressively loud in the icrfect stiil-
ness of the night, seemed to say, and
to keep saying, "Eight-to-sev-en,
Eight-to-sev -en, Eight - to-sev - en,
Eight-to-sev-en, Eigl it-to - sev - en."
Try as lie did, his cars could make it
say nothing else.
Mr. Haves went to a window, drew
the curtain, and looked up at the
broad face of the moon. For the lirst
time in his life be noticed that the
moon's face I tore a weird likeness to
the face of Gen. Butler. As lie re
marked this strange resemblance with
amazement, the outer corners of the
eyes seenieu to draw themselves still
further down, and the mouth lines to
take on an expression of sardonic glee,
as if the face said, "Congress meets
on the loth of October, Mr. Hayes,
and I shall be there."
He was turning away disgusted from
a spectacle that aft'onled him no satis
faction, when he was startled by a
deep, ringing voice, apparently close
to his ear, uttering with solemn em
phasis this word of reproach:
l I T .,,
.X rauu ; -
And again, almost liefore he could
recover his suspended breath:
"Konsense," thought Mr. Hayes,
"my nerves are gettiug the better ol
my sense, l am a "
"fraud!" said the voice for the third
and last time, lt was only the bell of
a church clock, striking the hour, but
If it hatl been the voice or doom pro
nouncing judgment, its effect upon
Mr. Hayes's ears could not have lieen
more terrifying. He left the window
and liegan to walk the floor, keeping
time unconsciously with the monoto
nous Eight-to-sev-en of the mantel
clock, and drawing the palm of his
hand to and fro across his forehead, a
gesture that bad become habitual with
with him or late.
In this restless mood Mr. Hayes
passed out of the apartment consecret
ed to a deity who refused to bless his
pillow, and juiced tlie long corridor
tor a time. The door of tlie Executive
room, where he and his predecessors
in the White House have lieen ac
customed to meet their counsellors,
was ajar. He pushed it ojien antl en
tered. It was not the first time that
he had visited the apartment at this
hour. He unlocked a cabinet, and bis
band groiied altoutiit the darkness un
til it had lound a wine glass and a
small vial. "It will bring me sleep,"
said Mr. Hayes to himself. "The
dreams are bad enough, but not so bad
The drowsiness of the brown liquid
came over him as he sat in the great
easy chair at the head of thelong table.
It was hardly sleep, for he was con
scious of the objects surrounding bim,
conscious of the moonlight, antl con
scious of his own acute wretchedness.
While Mr. Hayes sat in the easy
chair, waiting for the laudanum hi
close his heavy eyelids, an astonish
ing thing hapiencd. The door of the
Executive room swung f?n its binges,
and a procession of dim figures enter
ed, inarching two by two. A dozen,
fourteen, sixteen be counted, and hist
of all came one alone, taller, graver,
and more noble in form and carriage
than any of the rest. Mr. Hayes start
ed up from his chair to question his
dim visitors rather than to welcome

Curious Case of Infatuation Tears
Wickedness No Bu to Lore.
Jennie Jane's New York letter In the Haiti
It is generally supptiscd that when
beautiful young women marry elderly
men they do it simply and solely as a
matter of Ihimih-sm so much young
flesh and blood for so much money
and there is little sympathy for either
side if the bargain dues not turn out as
as was cxectid. A young lady of
Brooklyn has recently however, revers
ed all the traditions in this rcsect.
She is an only daughter, and the ap
ple of her parents' eyes. She is ex
tremely pretty and jn tite, with a rose
leaf complexion, a plump yet delicate
form and a profusion of golden brown
hair. She h is been educated at home
exclusively and seen but little of the
world, except one ye-ar sia-nt almiad.
This trip was projefted in order to get
rid of an attachment which, to her pa
rents' horror, she had formed for a
man of nearly sixty years old, who
was in the luibit of Vis'iiing her father
occasionally, but who took advantage
of the privilege accorded to his age,
and of a still somewhat line and even
distinguished ersoiial a)caraiiff , to
make passionate love to his daughter.
He is a very i"Mir man so tioor that
his I Mia id and washing bills arc always
in arrears, and he is overwhelmed
with debts for personal indulgences
for which he never thinks of paying.

A Sensation at Whits Sulphur.

Thursday furnished somewhat of a
male sensation, the details of which
have not yet fully transpired. It np
penrs lli;t a certain lady visitor from
asliington lias Mime time pa -t heeii
hdeavuring to make a little notoriety
by a recital of her experience in New

lived in Savannah, Georgia, but

began this lady took evei y occasion to
display her si-cession pioclivitics by
words and acts, and made herself con
siderably obnoxious to the authorities,
there. As a consequence of this Mr.
Seward, in order to rid himself of a
troublesome customer, sent the lady
South to New Orleans where she
whs when it was taken Hsession of
by General Butler. Here her reln-1-lious
sentiments got the lietter of her
discretion, and for jeering at the funer
al of a passing Union oilicer she was
imprisoned for six months. The im
prisonment is the subject of the Mory
she has to tell. Now for the sequel.
rinding it lmiKissliile to obtain a select
audience liefore which sbecotild relate,
her prison exjierience under the immac
ulate Ben, she summoned the ladies
from the parlor to the I tall room. They
came in force, and accompanied by
male escorts. When ail had cut ens l
the lady ordered the men to withdraw
as her revelations were such as could
not lie made in the presence of Imtli
sexes. The gentlemen then withdrew
and the revelations began. What the
nature eif those were can not be ascer
tained, but certain it is that when they
had reached a certain point, an allu
sion being made to the relative of it
lady present, the audience broke up
and the ladies fled precipitately. Per
hajH Gen. Butler can rise and explain.
Certain it is that those here who would
can not, and those that csn will not.
