Now York telegram, May 2.
A recent report from Constantinople
gives a detailed account of soino of the
many atrocious nets of the late Khedive,
a perusal of which will give an idea of how
ho managed his ministors and people. Tho
report is as follows:
Isbmall Pacha, tho lato Viceroy of
Egypt, who is now living in retirement at
Naples, became notorious during tho short
reign over that unfortunnto country for tho
many atrocious and wicked crimes ho committed.
Whenever ho wanted to rid himself
of 'an obnoxious minister, an influential
officer or of a man whose wife he coveted,
ho found means of either poisoning
him or having him stabbed in tho streets
or sometimes in his very bed. Of
all tho crimes of which ho is
guilty the murder of tho
is the most horrible, surpassing that of
his predecessor, Said Pachn. The
or Minister of Finances, was at ono
time a common laborer on one of tho Khedive's
estates, nnd was named
Sadyk, but by his industry and intelligence
rose to manago tho great Daira estate,
whore he gave such proofs fo his financial
qualities t.iat tho Viceroy appointed him
Minister of Finances. The Muffetish, nt
the timo of his nppointnient, was about
firty years old. exceedingly ugly, with little
eyes, fat, short, nnd exceedingly dirt'.
Whenever the Khedivo required money
for his insane extravagance, and the treasury
was empty, the Muli'otish, by simply
visiting a tow villages and having tho
Scheiks bastinadoed, raised nioro thnn
enough for his master's requirements. The
Minister, however, in extorting illegal taxes
from tho farmers, filled his own p.ickets, as
well as his master's. Ho bought and built
palace light and left, kept the best Arab
nurses, tilled his hnrciu with Oitcassinn
women of extraordinary beauty, the prices
of whom would hive frightened the Sultan,
ami in every other reboot actually vied
with tho Khedive himself in extravagnnco.
Tho Viceroy did not complain, nor did he
caio how much his minister robbed, as
long as his own requirements were ahiply
now the coxsrin.vrons .iikcame enf.miks.
Two years alter the Mutfetish's appointment
to tho Ministry, 121 Hairy Pacha, the
wealthiest nobleman of the Cast, and uncle
of tho Khedhc, wns seized with ti disease,
which the local medical men failed to
understand, and European physicians of
high lepute, being summoned to Cairo,
were bound to acknowledge their
inability to discover what ailed His
Kxccllcncy. Tho Khedive, in order to be
near his dear uncle, had him removed
to his own palace at Shoubra, nnd
while thcro, the only daughter of
Pacha, a girl of twelve years of ago, was
married to ono of tho Khedivo's sons. A
fow days after tho wedding Pacha
died, and his estate went to the Khedive.
The plot was concocted between tho
and his minister. From this limothc
Muffetish, having the Khedive in his power,
managed affairs as ho liked, and instead of
extracting taxes from tho Fellaheen for his
master's account ho openly collected them
for hiinsolf, pointing out to tho Viceory
that if ho wanted money English and
French capitalists wore willing to advance
him any amount ho required, and
as ho, as Minister of Finances, had to
negotiate tho loans, it is .presumed that he
mado a good commission out of thorn, tho
certainty being that for 80,000,000 worth
of bonds which wero issued not half that
amount ever reached tho Khedivo's coffers,
although tho country is now paying interest
and sinking fund on tho full amount.
Tho relations bctweon tho Khedivo and
his minister by degrees became so straitened
that they looked upon each other as
deadly enemies, nnd, what was woi'30 still,
neither of them took any pains to hido it
from tho public, thus causing tho weakness
of tho Vicoroy to bo strongly commented
upon. Many attempts were made
on tho life of tho Muffetish, but thoy all
failed. Fearing, howovor, that sooner or
later Ishma'il Pacha, who stopped at nothing,
would find means to dispatch him, he
resolved upon sending his wealth out of tho
country and then following to Paris, whero
ho could livo in great stylo on tho procoeds
of his many crimes. He is master of tho
HE IS MVSTEIt OP THE SITUATION.
Tho majority of plots and resolutions '
are formed in tho harem, nnd it is gener
ally through that channel that thoy ooze
out. Tho Muffetish was passionntcly
fond of a young Circassian slave,
or wife, thoro being littlo or no
diffcrenco botwocn tho two, named
Aizch, and to her ho confidod his plan, tolling
her of tho honors and grandncss
whioh alio would sharo with him in tho
French capital. That evening It was known
in tho Khedive's harom, and within twenty-four
hours tho Viceroy put an end to
Ills Minlstor s career by murdering him in
Somo wcoks previous to this Messrs.
Joubert and.Cao, tho Commissioners, ap
pointed by tho French and English holders
of I'gyptian bonds, proposed their celebrated
schemo for tho HOttlemcut of tho national
debt, and as this did not just then
suit the Muffetish, he wrote a lottcr to his
master telling him that if ho accepted tho
proposed terms ho would publish certain
things very detrimental to his
credit. Tho Khedivo kept this letter,
and, . upon hearing from ono
of his own harem favorites what his
minister hud told tho Circassian girl Aizch,
determined to uso the letter against him
and thus provent his projected escape. An
order was issued torn cannot council to bo
held nt the palace, early on tho following
morning, to consider tho proposed financial
scheme, and all tho ministers, including
the Muffetish, responded to the call. His
Highness mot tho privy council nnd there
ami then accused Ismail Sadyk, tho
of high 'treason in daring to threaten
him, and thus prevent him from
his duty to his country. The minister,
who had certainly underrated the Khedive's
courage, was condemned to dismissal from
tho state service in disgrace, exile and imprisonment
nt Dougela, and the loss of all
liis property to tho sovereign. lie was immediately
arrested by his colleagues, who
were over-zealous to please their master,
and immediately chained and shipped on
board n steamer, which instantly leu for
Mi'itnuittxn nis victim
Tho Khedive, howovor, was not satisfied
with the "u'd.ct, which lie had expected
would be one of iteai'n, and. knowing that
a clever limn like Muffetish would fooner
or Inter find means of escape, ho sen, a
fast steam-launch alter the bun, with a
private message to the commander to bind
the fallen minister and bring hint at night
ii it boat to the palace, the Nile gatos of
which would be left open fur their reception.
In the dead of niglit a boat with
in u 111 ihI oais approached the palace quay,
and the Muifetisn was landed in chaige of
the captain. He was taken into the
" divan odussi,' or and
theie .set upon by the captain, tho Khedive
himself and tho hitter's sou, Mnhmud, who
a short time ago petitioned Bngluiid to be
allowed to take part in the Haitian campaign,
and who now, armed with a sword,
ran his father's foe through nn I through.
That very night Mors. Joubert and
Cave discovered that b.mds representing
secrnl millions nf "pounds sterling, which
were supposed to bear the seal of the
had not been attested by that functionary,
and immediately sent word to the
Khedivo to have the minister recalled, in
order that he might senlthc bonds, and
tho messenger cairying this intimation to
tlio Viceroy armed just in time to prevent
him and his accomplices from throwing the
corpse into the Nile. Tho Khedivo had
found the dead minister's seals about his
body, and on the following day tho
steamer camo down tho Nile in open daylight,
and a heavily chained nnd wrapped-up
individual, who appeared to
hido his disgrnced face, landed on the pa'-acc
quny; and in order to deceive thw
Anglo-French commissioners and the public
alike, tho Khedivo had the inanimate
body of his victim fixed in a sitting position
in nn open carriage, which cvory
morning, accompanied by an officer, was
driven to tho Ministry of Finances, whero
tho Muffetish wns supposed to seal the
bonds, and overy evening it returned to
tho palace, making n long detour through
tho city. When all tho bonds had
been stamped by the Khedivo and his
son with tho seals of tho dead man, the
steamer ngain approached tho palace, tho
fictitious Muffetish aguin wftntoti board and
was supposed to be conducted to his destination,
whilo in roality tho body was that
night consigned to tho Nilo.
Two months later tho Governor of Danzo-la
sent an affidavit to Cairo In which he
stated that tho Muffetish had died in exile
in that city of typhus fever, but previous to
this, nnd in accordanco with tho verdict ot
tho Privy Council, tho Khedivo Jiad possessed
himsolf of all tho dead man's property,
amounting to several millions of

When rounding a curvo near McKendry,
the engineer of tho west bound passcngor
train on tho Chesapeake & Ohio railroad,
saw a landslide ahead, and beforo the train
could bo stopped tho engine struck
tho heap of dirt, rocks and stumps,
piled nbout six feet deep on tho
track. It plowed through the muss, jumped
tho track, and rolled down a fifty foot
embankment into the New river, where it
brought up on its feet in ten feet of water.
In its descent it turned over a number of
times, carrying tho engineer and fireman
with it. The former, Tom Bullock, fell
out near tho bank of tho river, whoro ho
was afterward found lying. Tho fireman
was only slightly bruised aud burned.
When tho engine left tho track it
broko loose from the tender, which
nlso parted from the baggage car. Tho train
stopped within 100 feet after passing tho
obstruction, but the tendor ran on a distance
of thrco miles, to tho next station.
Hearing it coming, tho telegraph operator
reported the train on timo. Most of the
passengers wero littlo alarmed, but tho
ladies in tho sleeper wero agitated and
shrioked just a little, in undress uniform.
The unfortunato enginoor regained consciousness
and said to thoso near him:
" Don't send word of this to my wife." He
resided at Huntington, whero ho was
brought. His Injuries aro severe, and it is
bolievcd that his baok is broken.

Tho second performance of tho Dramatio
Festival attracted an audience of six
thousand. Hamlet is made to say : "Tho
play's tho thing to catch thoconsciencoof n
king." In this instnnco it is certainly tho
thing to catch the peoplo nnd their dollars.
Speaking of dollars, it is
one of tho interesting features of
tho festival, that seats cost all
the way from $2 to $150. All tho
seats wero taken at the auction
sales by tho wealthy peoplo or tho ticket
speculators. Tho latter class invariably
hang around cvory thing that promises
to become populnr and gobble- up all the
scats. Persons who aro unfortunate In not
obtaining seats nt tho sales, are at the
morcy of these middlo men. In matters
of juroly an amusement nature, peoplo do
not caro to bo bled, and in consequence
thcro is considerable indignation
manifested. Tho present occasion
is no oxception, instead it is aggravated in

The fact that thoro wero nearly twt:.ty
members of tho last IIouso who wero
below the ago of thirty-eight, as
shown by a corrosrrfndont
in speaking of Phil. Thompson,
leads to somo further study of
the question of ago of our law-makers
it is quito gratifying to observe that
a man is not so very old when ho
is sixty. In tho last Congress there
were more than fifty men who were beyond
the ape of sixty, more than twenty who
were sixty-live or past, and three or four
who had reached or passed their threo
score and ten. Senator Morrill was tho
oldest man in tho last Congress, having
been born on January 10, 1810, and having
thus made his strong tnrritf fight at tho
age of seventy-three.
Kelly, who was even nioro active in tho
tariff struggle in tho Houo, has just entered
his seventieth year, having been born
April l'J, 1SU. Almost one-third of his
life has been spent in Congress, he having
served twenty-two consecutive years.
Senator' Sherman will bo sixty years on

Hewitt sixty-one in July. Wait was tho
oldest man in tho House, being nearly
seventy-two, and Singleton, of Illinois, was
but three months younger. Stephens, of
Georgia, wa3 seventy-one. Bobeson, whoso
hair and beard are as white as tho driven
snow, is but fifty-four. Forty members of
the Forty-seventh Congress wero born on
tho other side of 1820, and must, therefore,
have been over sixty when elected.
Kason, who doesn't look to hoover
or lifry, is sixty. Beck, whoso hair and
beard are but little frosted, is sixty. David
Davis, who considered himself young
enough to marry a young girl, is sixty-eight.
General Rosccrnns is sixty-four.
