The Richmond (Kv.) lkral prints
the following readable letter from Gen
eral C. M. Clay, In defense of Russia
and tlio Russians:
In your journal of a recent date is a
paper which is a typo of the malignant"
calumnies of tho anti-Kussiau press for
a century or more. 1 lived in St. Pet
ersburg for near nine years, and mado
Russian lifo a study, mingling with all
classes for that purpose. I dined wfth
tho Emperor and imperial family, and
took cabbage and soup and black bread
with tho woodmen who camo from tho
interior on boats and rafls. Perhaps
there is no American, living or dead,
who can speak with more authority
than I can on tho real character of
Russia. I belicvo there is no ruoro
charitable or humane nation on earth
than Russia. I give tho proofs. There
are no deaths by absolute poverty in
Russia, as in tho great cities of Paris,
London, New York and other European
cities. Besides tho charitable associa
tions established by law, tho first nobles
in Russia, men and women, yearly, by
organizod societies, collect funds by
gifts, needlo work, and other methods,
for clothes, soup-houses and bread,
which are distributed all winter in St.
Petersburg; and such methods aro pur
sued in other cities. Tho infants that
aro drowned and thrown into sewers in
Europe and America aro taken at a
day old, if need be, and brought up at
the public expenso in St. Petersburg,
Moscow, and other cities. These child
ren, when grown up to a suitable age,
are put to service, and may make a
generous living. Russia liberated her
Blaves, not by war, aud gavo' them
lands. Am'1 iea did neither.
I dined v i t lie nephew of Prince
Dolgorouky, . vernor General of Mos
cow (Vicerin ), and a liberated serf or
slave was at the table as a guest, and
mado the best dinner speech on the oc
casion. Tho Russians open all their
pleasure-grounds besido tho public
parks to the wholo people. They never
bar tho gates and close tho doors
Bgainst tho "rabble," as in England
and America. In summer the yards
aro open and tho windows without
blinds, that the humblest peasant may
Bee and hear the music. Ou all great
occasions of a private nature all the
poor are feasted or otherwise enter
tained by suitable means. In England
and America even house servants aro
treated with contempt, and my own
family remonstrated on my return be
cause I said good morning, as was my
babit in Russia, to them. The Russian
noblemen speak kindly always to their
inferiors; the Englishmen and Ameri
cans out of the south rarely ever. The
Russian Empire is largo and sparsely
populated, so that the means of sub
sistence do not at all press upon tho
increase of population. In the liu-go
cities, as I said, no absolute sufi'oring
for the necessaries of life is possible.
Now, a3 to prisons. There was at
no timo while I was in Russia, so far
as I know and believe, one euual in its
infamy to the Kentucky Penitentiary,
And Governor Blackburn deserves not
denunciation, but eternal honor, for
his manhood and philanthrophy, against
tho barbarian clamors of tho press,
for his reform. When I was in St.
Petersburg the cholera was several
times in that city of 600,000, and thero
was no nioro sensation than if tho
measles or whooping-cough prevailed.
Every subject of the disease was taken
at once to wholesomo hospitals, well
attended, and then, when convales
cent, returned without charge to their
Tho streets of St. Petersburg were a
hundred times eleauer than the streets,
alleys and back-yards of Richmond.
They never burned down the pest
liouses in Russia, as they did the other
day in Madison county, when small
pox prevailed. As to prisons and Si
beria, I am glad to have an opportuni
ty to refute some of tho world-wide
calumnies of tho anti-Russian press.
Siberia is not so vile a country as tho
French penal colony of Cayenne, nor
the original Australia of England.
Threo Siberian-born ladies married
nobles in St. Petersburg; oue tho
Princo Suwarrow, the grand un of tho
Prince Suwarrow of Napolemfs times;
tho other sisters married well, ono an
officer on the stall' of the Emperor. I
have hoard them sneak of tho "Father
land" as would a German. And theso
were tho descendants of Siberian exiles.

flienJsliip with th'J sulau of Rliaita.
"W g tij'jii," said thy couut, "iu a hut,
wliuru a lwii i untver w:vi tirsl recited,
and afterward various speeches were
made. I exwVied uivself as follows
'My dear frieu J , 1 am ii;tKrautof your
lauruare aud cannot exiress nil my
sentitueuts; but it is enough to say
that 1 have requested tho sultan of
Aussa to adopt mo as his son, and that
now we will exchange blood, so that
tho blood of your people may bo ns
dear to mo as my own,' and mine as
dear to you. I think you will under
stand mo.' Another long prayer loi
lowcd, after which tho sultan and I
wero conducted under a troo to which
an ox was tied. Tho sultan cut the
ox's throat, and with its blood anointed
mv forehead and then his own; after
which he mado a necklaco and braee
'ets out of tho skin of tho ox and placed
them on my neck and arms, saying:
'Men, women! this whito man is our
brother!' In tho country of tho Uana
kils a prophet camo to our camp; so
ono evening wo mado a largo circle in
tho tent, and everyone, flattering tho
prophet, overwhelmed him with ques
tions. At last ho began to chant re
plies, which wero repeated in a loud
voice bv all nresenL acconmaniod with
gesticulations of tho hands and feet.
The prophet gradually became excited,
till at last ho howled and struggled
liko a demoniac. When questioned
about me ho said that tho king of Si-
coa would receive mo well; tho super
stitious Danakils wero discontented with
this laconic prophecy, and began to
nave susp.cious of our expedition. Next
day, therefore, I invited tho prophet to
my tent, gave him to eat and drink in
profusion, and made him a quantity of
small presents. This so delighted him
that at the evening meeting ho praised
mo to the skies, prophesying all sorts
of good. I was obliged to show myself
to the Danakils in a semi-nude costume,
for tho report had spread that I was a
brother, and as such they received mo
in their tents." The following is Count
Autonelli's description of his reception
by the terribie sultan of Aussa: "H hen
I arrived at the sultan's residence I
found myself in the midst of about two
thousand warriors, wlio were executing
a diabolic dance, uttering savage howls
and striking their weapons together.
Tho sultan was watching whether this
spectacle would alarm me, but on see
ing that I walked quietly on without
taking any notice, ho caused mo to bo
ushered into his presence. I found a
tail man about 50 years of age, with a
robust frame nnd dark' complexion,
wearing a rather curly beard. His
eyes were stern and his expression self-
satistieil tliat of a man who believes
himself tho greatest and most power-
lul man on earth, lie looked askance
at me, and pointed to a native, Who he
said was the chief of the men who could
change themselves into hyenas. I de
sired to seo the transformation, but he
informed nio it could not be dono at
once, but that I should hear his voice.
Then the man imitated the cry of the
hyena. 1 he Miltan, seeing it mado no
impression ou me, was very content,
and gave mo an U'dy old harmonica.
saying: 'Amuse yourself with that, and
drink some coffee; afterward wo will
see.' In fact, we soon signed a Bolenin
pact of friendship, alter which tho sul
tan said, in a sentimental voice: 'Many
pcoplo have told you that 1 am an as
sassin, and many have spoken ill of
vou to me. Well, then, let us make a
bargain I will never believe anything
that is said against you, and you must
never believe anything bad of me,' Tho
sultan's daughters aro beautiful black
Venuses, and are clothed almost as
lightly as that goddess. They are not
allowed to marry except when the
moon lies low ou tho horizon between
two stars. This combination happens
rarely, so one of the princesses grew
impatient, rebelled, and took a hus
band to herself at a timo when there
as no moon between two stars. When
the sultan heard of the impious act ho
ordered that his daughter should be
driven out of the tribe and given to
certain merchants, who would take her
to tho devil's house. lint tho priests
interfered, and the you;ig girl, instead
of being exiled, was drowned in tho
lako of Aussa."
Costly Wood from Afar.
Perhaps the finest and most costly
brought to this country, so lino and
costly indeed that it is rarely used sol
id but for veneering, is what is called
French walnut, which does not, howev
er, come from France, being grown on
ly in Persia an 1 Asia Minor. As tho
treo is crooked and dwarfed, largo
pieces can rarely be obtained from it,
and it is chiefly valuable for tho
"burls," or tough excrescences which
grow upon the trunk. These, when
jmlished, are of singular and striking
beauty, tho grain being twisted in beau
tiful, though By mm trically, intricato
figures. Next to this so-eallcd French
walnut, ebony is probably tho most
valuable of the cabinet woods. Ebony,
also, is dillieult to get in pieces of size,
a fact which quite as much as its deep
dark hue causes it to bo prized. Rose
wood and mahogany aro also choico
woods, nnd are just" now particularly
fashionable and in demand. Tho best
mahogany is that of San Domingo,
though nearly as goo I wood comes
from Cuba, Honduras. Mexico aud Af
rica. Theso woods are to bo had at
fair prices, as thero is a considerable
quantity in tho market. Fair roso
wood is selling in tho market for from
oj to 7 cents a pound, in tho log. Of
the domestic woods, bird's-eyo maplo
is very handsome for cabinets, and is
very popular. Tho red variety of
beech is a beautiful wood, and can bo
made to imltnto cherry. Oak, ash and
handsomely by simply using a good
uo; urmguig out tho natural
beauty of tho woodbv hard DolishiiiL'.
Ulack walnut of .the best quality also
presents a beautiful nppearanco when
subjected to tho same treatment.

A correspondent from Cairo de
scribes an Ostrich farm in that neigh
borhood. Tho ownor began four years
ago with twenty-four birds, and has
now -10. Each full-grown ostrich
yields nearly 70J francs' worth of feath
ers. Tho heu lays about forty-eight
eggs; about one-fourth are bad, andf
tho remaining three dozen half aro left
with tho bird and half aro hatched ar
tificially in warm cases of sand cover
ed with flannel. Tuo difficulties in this
process are in keeping a uniform heat
and in cracking the shell at tho riht
time and place. Tho most disagreea
ble work is plucking tho feathers.

St. Louis, Mo., July 27, 1883.In hftinc
a small cssiing in my office, I sprained my
back, from which I suffered the most ex-
crutiating pnins, and could not rest in aoy
position; after using several well known
remedies without effect, Merrel's Penetra
ting Oil was recommended to mo, and I
tried it. One application relieved mo in
shout five minutes, and ia two days was en
tirely cured and have had no trouble since.
It is a Liniment of great value.
