Tub Russian Wah Manifesto.—
The news received to-d*y from Europe
states that Russia h- - issued a war mani
festo, setting forth the reasons which
have induced the Czar to I ake up arms
and the objects tor which he will use
them. It makes the conventional prom
ise usual in such cases, that Russia gi as
to war not for conquest, but to pro. eel
the rights of the Sclavonic fellow-believ
ers of the Russian people in the Turkish
These Sclavonic fellow-believers of the
Russian people bave not been consulted
hy the'r protector m the matter, and
there is little rear on to doubt that they
are cursing him in their hearts to-day for
his interference more bitterly than they
have ever cursed the Sultan or the Sal
tan's servants for the oppressions which
are Its pretext. Tf Russia marches into
Bulgaria for the purpose of occupying
that province, as the manifesto declares
that she means to do, the unhappy Bu'
garians. who hate the Greek Christians
much more Intensely than tbeMabomet
ans, will be . bairied out of bouse and
home by the contendmg atmiei. They
are a quiet people, and in ordinary times
a rather prosperous and well-to-do peo

regulars during the disturbances of last

—The whole country seems to rejoice In
the promised freedom of Lou'siana on
Tuesday. The President's order for the
removal of the troops on that day is pub
lished, and the Secretary of War hes is
sued it to the General. But somehow or
other that functions y always happens to
be away om his office when such orders
are sent there. Tn th's case we be
lieve his absenoe will not cause delay ;
in previous c ses we believe the absence
of this man from b ; s post was deserving
of severe censure. It is hoped that the
order o r the President will he promptly
obeyed, and that all the States in the
Union will bj once mere Independent
sovereignties. Th's great result has no.
been brought about without much labor
and determined ef 01 L on the p? - of Dem
ocratic statesmen, and the credit for the
benefits resultlr" is a'mo't wholly due
to the unity of the Democratic peny on
the ques-ion.

Hayes' Letters:— Those who read
tl^ orders of the President with regard to
the presence of the U, S. troops in Loui
siana and South Carolina, cannot fail to
observe the studied care taken to state
the fact that he found the troops there
upon entering upon his official duties.
Th's, in connection with his repeated
declaration that he could find no law or
reason for continuing them in that posi
tion. is of itself a condemnation of the
the policy of the late administration, and
must be so considered by Grant and those
who were in his Cabinet, and their back
ers aud excusers.
The Effect of the War between
Russia and Turkey, which may now be
said to be declared, although formal dec

the combatants, will no doubt be io in

and many other articles will be stimula

said to be a scarcity of wheat in the
couutry, and it has already advanced
from $115 last fall U> $2, and flour which
then sold at $8 is now selling for $11.
