Terrible Accoumets of Turkis
Atrocities--12OOO to 15,000
t hristians Massacred.
LONDON, Aug. 14.-The Daily
News Bucharest correspondent
telegraphs: I have written the
following as I received it, and
from the terrible accounts which
fugitives continually bring over
the Balkans, fear it must be only
too true : On July 31, the day of
the Russian evacuation of Eski
Saghra, the Turks ordered that
all Christians, me&t women and
children should be shot as they
left their houses. Those who re
mained within were burnt alive.
The order was given to burn
down and destroy every particle
of christian property in the place.
Many leading Turkish merchants
took part in the affair. One dis
patched a large number of Bashi
Bazouks all over Tchirpan Dis
traict. This district is one of- the
richest in that part of Turkey.
It contains a large proportion of
Christian inhabitants, and over
300 churches and 500 schools
and colleges, all of which have
been burnt. The destruction ex
tended to the villages of Bogh
dan, Mahalesi, Rani, and many
others, in all about sixty, con
taining from 150 to 200 families
each. Scarcely fifty persons have
escaped alive, ulgarian fugi
tives at Gabriavo and Selvi esti
mate that from 12,000 to 15,000
Christians have been massacred
in Eski Saghra and Tchirpan.
Two Know Nothing Candi
dates for Governor of Ohio.
Mr. West edited a Know
Nothing paper at Bellefontaine
in 1854, and was elected prose
cuting attorney on that ticket
the same year. It is of no con
sequence, but as Republican
papers opened out on Mr. Bish
op, and sought to bring odium
upon him by falsely charging
that he was elected mayor of
Cinoinnatti on the Know Noth
ing ticket in 1858, three years
after that party had been ab
sorbed by the Republican party,
it is in order to show up their
candidate's record on that mat
A Mr. Morris, planter, near
St. Joseph, Tensas parish, aoci
dently discovered what he calls
a cheap and effective means of
destroying the cocoa grass. It is
to sprinkle ooal oil (that in its
crude state is best) on the grass
out of an ordinary watering pot,
putting it on so that about five
or six drops will be on each
stem that goes down to the nuts
in the ground. The best time to
put it on is when the grass is
perfectly dry, free from rain
water and dew. Will some one
try it and report the result?

New York Trmibne.
Ex-Gov. Seymou,'s nephew,
Mr. RJ. B. Miller, has just died
at itica. While Seymour was
Govetaor 11 1863 he gave Mr.
Miller the oboe of pardon clerk
-an office which be filled with
efficiency and integrity. A
member of the Legislature onee
applied for a pardon for one of
his constituents, and sought to
secure a favorable report from
Mr. Miller. "I'll tell you what
I'll do," he said, with the rascal
ly bluntness of one who believes
that every man has his price;
"I'll give you a hundred dollars
if you'll get the Governor to
sign that pardon." Mr. Miller
stifled his indignation, and with
a quizzical smile on his face, of
fered to attend to the business
immeaiately. "We'll go right
in and see the Governor," he
said. Reaching the executive
presence, Mr. Miller remarked,
with a great show of interest,
"Gov. Seymour, this is the Hon.
M --; he is a member of the
Legislature, and he wants a
pardon for one of his constitu
ents; he offers me a hundred
dollars if Ill get it for him. I'll
go: you halves on the money if
you'll sign itl" The astoni hed
member, taking in the situatign,
A Man Whoe Never Told a
Yesterday afternoon an old
oil man, with crude petroleum
dripping from his clothes and
legs inclosed in high boots, en
tered the Derrick office and said:
"Want an item ?"
S"I've got the dnmbdest item
you ever heard tell on. I struck
an ile well on my lease Mon
day, and she flowed a streamed
of ile one hundred feet high
straight up for half an hour.
Then she kinder died down
one of my drillers was standing
over the hole, when she sudden
ly spurted up again, and, blast
my eyes if it didn't take that
driller right up with it. The
stream was a powerful one, you
see, an' he went up a hundred
feet. You've seen those little
balls as dance about on top of
those little spurting fountains
such as they have in the cities?
Yes, waal that's the wa4 this
'ere thing acted, an' there s that
air driller right up on top of
that hundred fut column of
crude ile, an' he's dancin' about
like chaff in a fanning mill.
What do you think of that un?"
"How long has he been up
"About four days and four
"He must be very hungry by
this time. Doesn't he come
down to get something to eat ?"
"Why, we 'ons just put a plte

it takes it up to him, you see.
An it's mighty handy, as he
finds his victuals already gre^se
ed, an' he doesn't need any
"But he must have frosen to
death before this time."
"Why, man, we've sent him
up on the same stream, bed and
bedding, a small stove an' wood,
an' we're goin' to build him a
small house, an' then he can
