The Anglo Saxon Confederation.
—Two celebrated English periodicals,
the London Spectator aud the Medical
Examiner, have been discussing the fu
ture of England, and one of them appears
to think thattbis measure of our fellow
citizen, Francis Vincent, will iu the fu
ture be accomplished, and that Great
Britain will be united uuderone govern
ment with the rest of the "English speak
ing people." It predicts that the coal
iuiues will be exhausted, the iron mines
he shut up like the tin mines of Cornwall;
that the population will emigrate to oth
Englisli speaking lands; that London
will decay like Bruges, and Us houses rot
away from had building; that the Anglo
Saxon will overwhelm and possess this
continent; that England willbe a pasture
field—a stock farm; that her population
will be reduced to six millions, happy,
sleepy tillers of the soil. They also give
utterance to this sentence:
"There will be no fear of invasion to
distract the people, for over every local
emblem will float the broad blue flag of
the Anglo Saxon Confederation,
which noue may insult aud live,"
Safe Moved.— Since the fitting up of
the new Board of Education room, over
the Tax Collectors' office on East Sixth
street, the larue safe has stood In the
northeast corner of the room over Collec
tor Provost's desk. Recently it was
noticed that the weight of the safe was
causing the floor to settle, whereupon the
safe was removed to the south-east corner
over Collector Farmar's desk, where the
upper floor was securely braced. Mr.
Johnson, member of the Board from
the First Ward, insisted that
the committee having charge of the re
moval were actuated by sinister motives,
as they had secured the safety ot the Re
publican Collector, Mr. Frovost, and
trying to kill the Democratic
Collector, Mr. Farmar.
Divorce.— On Saturday evening, Oct.
6th, Mr. Augustiu Daly's famous Fifth
Avenue Theatre Company, will positive

A VICTORY FOR THE RUS
SIANS INSTEAD OF THE
London, Sept. 22, 1877.
Mehemet All's reported victory on
Friday over the Czarewitch turns out
to have been a defeat, but tbe Rus
tiaos do not seem to make much of the
affair. Their official bulletin merely
announces the following.—"At tbe
close of the engagement we held all
our positions. A renewal of the at
tack is expected," There is no esti
mate of the losses, nor is there any
given in the Turkish bulletins.
A TURKISH DEFEAT.
The Daily News' correspondent
with the Turks calls the affair an of
tensive reconnoissance by ten battaf
ions and gives about the same result
as the other account,but ascribes mote
credit and better results to tbe Turks
than tbe Daily Telegraph's account
which stated that flve or six attacks
were made by the Turks, which failed
and the Turkish loss was very heavy.
A special dated Bucharest, Monday,
says the weather for the past two days
has been extremely bad. At Frateshti,
which is now a sea of mud, hospital ac- •
commodation exists for 1,500 wounded,
but 7,000 are accumulated there.
Ge neral Todleben has started for the
Russian headquarters. It is believed he
will remain there some days for consul
tation on the general situation and after
ward will be associated with Prince
Charles in command of the army before
A steam ferry has been established be

bridge which was removed; so it would

some of their lost ground.
