Russia Waging War in Asia
The Last Sigh of the Turk.
A FRANTIC APPEAL FOR THE
PROTECTION
OF THE
TREATY OF PARIS.
ENGLASUv'S INTERESTS AT ST>KK
(BY CARLE TO THE N. Y. HERALD]
London, April 28,1877.
The Russian troops have not moved
farther westward than Barboschi. Their
delay is variously commented on. The
most plausible explanation is that their
rapid advance at first was due to the
persistent report that the Turks intended
to destroy the railway bridge. It is not
probable that the Russian forces now in
this province will move much further un
til overtaken by supports, now detained
by the floods which interrupt the rail
ways. It is stated that the Russians in.
tend laying a railway line from Berlat
Tekutch to Bunco. This will connect the
two lines of rail way ww existing and will
considerably shorten the distance be
tween Jassy and Bucharest., and relieve
the Russian line of communication, which
is in constant danger of interruption by
the Turkish flotilla. The construction of
the road will be very easy. The rails are
already here. It is said the Russian
headquarters will first be established at
Ploiesti, north of Bucharest. I|still think
a considerable interval will elapse before
there is any serious collision with the
Turks. Great military activity is obsei"
vable in Bucharest. The Roumanian
government is evidently making every
effort to be fully prepared forth« course
be determined on oy the Chamber.
THE INVASION OF ASIA MINOR.
All the information regarding Russian
advauce upon Turkey in Asia comes
from-Turkish sources, and is, of course,
colored to suit the occasion. It is there*
fore to be read with this understanding.
This morning's Advertiser 's special de
spatch from Pera reports that the town
ofPoti has been bombarded and burnt by
the Turks. A telegram from Erzoreun
says the [.Russians are invading Turksh
territory between Batoum and Bayasid,
and have seized 6,000 bushels of grain at
Adjakooly. The Turks are advancing
toward Alexandropol in three column.
RETTER GUARDIANS THAN THE TURKS.
This war,so far as the Russians are con
cerned, is evidently to be tempered with
all the humane principles of nineteenth
century warfare* The Russiaus clearly
meau to appeal to the world for moral
support by nutting their conduct in con
trast with the brutal butcheries of the de
fenceless Bulgarians by the Turks,
summer will be different from last.

A decision in the suit of Ann Eliza
against Brigham Young was rendered by
Judge Schaeffer, in Salt Lake City, ye».,
terday. . The Judge decides that the
plaintiff is not entitled to a decree of
divorce, the alleged marriage being
polygamous, and therefore null and void;
also, that, "during the time plaintiff* was
with defendant as polygamous wife, she
him as a menial servant,
and would be entitled to reasonable com
pensation for her service; but, having re
ceived iu this instance, in the form of
alimony pendeute lite, more than such
services are shown by the proof to
reasonably worth, she should go hence
without further compensation."

ïjl'PEHMTTlON.
A panacea, or "cure-all," is one of the
myths of the age of superstition. Dr. R.
V. Pierce does not recommend any one
or even his whole list of standard * rem
edies as adequate to cure every disease.
For severe lingering cough, bronchial,
throat, and chronic lung diseases, he be
lieves his Golden Medical Discovery is
unsurpassed, but it will not cure you if
your Jungs are half wasted by consump
tion. The Discovery not only exercises
a potent influence over pulmonary affec
tions, by reason of its pectoral propen
ties, but possesses also the most valuable
alterative, or blood cleansing properties,
and is therefore a sovereign remedy in
blood aud skin affections. But while it
will cure scrofulous and other ulcers or
sores, blotches, pimples, and eruptions,it
will not eure cancer, nor does its manu
facturer claim any such merit for it as is
done by proprietors of other blood*
cleansing medicines, who dishonestly try
to deceive the afflicted into the belief
that there preparations will accomplish
impossibilities. By reason of its real in
trinsic merit it lias a sale surpassing
that of any other blood and cough medi
cine.
Heavy Shipments. —During the
year ending April 1st 1877, the ship
