FROM But the General Indications Rather Favor ing PeaceReported Misunderstanding Between England and Russia Russia "Withdraws Some of Her Conditions and the Treaty of Peace to be SignedThe Usual Batch of Speculations. THE TURKISH FLEET. CONSTANTINOPLE. Feb. 23.The draft of peace conditions contained a stipulation that six principal Turkish ironclads should be ceded to Russia, on the ground that other wise the Porte might sell them to England. The sultan objected to this stipulation. He stated he would prefer to destroy the vessels and promised not to transfer them to any foreign power. The incident terminated by the Sultan undertaking not to sell the iron clads to England, in consideration of which Kussia withdrew her demand for their im mediate cession. It is understood the treaty of peace is on the point of being signed. I is probable the Russian Grand Duke Nicho las will visit the Sultan here. A RUSSIAN THREAT. LONDON, Feb. 23.It is persistently main tained, despite the statements in the British Pailianient, that the arrangement between England and Russia is by no means perfect: that an announcement of the Muscovite in tention to occupy Constantinople has caused thG whole affair to enter upon a new phase, and that in consequence the British squad ron has again returned to the Princess Islands. CROWDING THE PORTE. S T. PETERSBURG, Feb. 23.The f-folos says of the protracted peace negotiations: Either the British squadron should withdraw to Be sika Bay or the Porte should receive proof that it reckons in vain upon the presence of British iron-clads in the sea of Marmora. Turkey should be informed if peace is not signed at the earliest practicable date hostili ties wi I be resumed. THE CONFERENCE. A 'Times St. Petersburg dispatch says a conference is not likely to meet until the Adrianople negotiations are concluded. llus- tio ought not to be construed as weakness in retreat. I have reason to believe that cordiality between the court of St. Peters burg and Berlin has not increased much lately. Official journals are very reserved in commenting on Bisniark's late speech in the Reichstag. MILITARY COLONIFS. A Paris conespondent sajs: According to a telegram tioin Bucharest, fresh Russian detachments are arm ing in Rouinania, sev eral of them without arms. It is believed they are destined to form military colonies in Bulgaria. THE SITUATION UNSATISFACTORY. The Tunes, editonally, says it considers the situation very unsatisfactory. Europe is armed to the teeth, and is increasing its arm aments day by daw I such circumstances, the country can but give its confidence to the government, and trust they will be able to control the dangerous susceptibilities which have, on all sides, been aroused. GERMAN TAX DILL. A Berlin despatch &ays if the national liberals do not secure Benningsen's appoint ment to the new office of vice chancellor, they will reject the pending tax bill, and thus compel Camphausen's resignation. If the courage of the libeials holds out, the consequences are likely to be grave. TORPEDO SERVICE. A Pera dispatch says great anxiety prevails here. Three thousand seamen have passed Adrianople for torpedo service in the Gulf of Saros and sea of Marmora. ANIMOSITY TO RUSSIA. A Belgrade dispatch says a feeling of ani mosity against Russia is prevalent here. DECIDEDLY DARK.

Lib eral, will preside at the peace demonstration to-morrow, and Bradlaugh will move resolu tions anti-Russian. The papers announce a loyal and patriotic demonstration at Mar blearch to vote down peace resolutions and protest against any attempt to embarrass the government during the present crisis against Russian occupation of Constanti nople. SITUATION IMPROVING. S T. PETERSBURG, Feb 3.The Agenre Unime says the situation has improved through an understanding between England and Russia, whereby Russia will not occupy Gallipoli. and England will not land troops on the shores of the Dardanelles. Negotia tions for peace are making progress. To hasten them the. Grand Duke Nicholas, by agreement with "the Porte, has transferred his headquarters to San Stefano, and will meet theie to-morrow Savfet Pasha. The signatures to the peace conditions will fol low.

LONDON, Feb. 23.A well informed Vi enna correspondent affirms that Savfet Pa sha still hesitates to sign Gen. Ignatieff "s conditions defining the eastern and southern limits of Bulgaria and says: "Th con ditions also, despite the denial of the Aqence Itnsse, predicate an expulsion practically of the entire Mussulman population. The idea of the Sultan's withdrawal to Broussa is again mooted at Constantinople. Onon. General Ignatieff's dragoman, is at Constantinople pressing the Turks to come to a speedy condition. GENERAL rOREIGN NEWS. BERLIN, Feb. 23.Parliament to-day re sumed debate on the imperial tobacco and stamp duties. Camphausen, who is a free Sunday trader, said he had frequently offered Prince Bismarck his resignation, and would not re main at the head of the financial adminis tration unless supported by the parties.

Sir Bartle Trere, governor and commander-in chief of the Cape Colony, and the ministry have had differences regarding military af fairs, and the ministry were dismissed. BAD FOR HAYES. Returning-Board Anderson Denied si Neiv Trial by Judge Whitaker. N EW ORLEANS, La., Feb 23.Judge Whit aker to-day rendered his decision upon the motion for a new trial of Thomas C. Ander son. The judge holds that the verdict was in accordance with the evidence as to the first pointThat James Prince, one of the colored jurors, was not a competent juror, he being under age, and defendant, therefore, having been tried by eleven jurors in viola tion of the constitution, the court held that Prince swore on bis voir dire that he was 22 years of age, had registered and voted in 187G. The burden of proof, as to his not being of age, rests upon the mover. The mother of the juror is sick and demented, and there was no record of his birth, or his baptism. The judge then reviewed the testimony of the witnesses, several of whom have contra dicted themselves or could not fix dates as to the age of Prince. The testimony, alto gether, does not prove the age of Prince. Opinions of witnesses and hearsay evidence alone, has been offered for the guidance of the court. The court cannot say that the juror, Prince, swore to a lie on his voir dire. On the contradictory mass of indefinite statements in regard to the point that Jere mian Lincoln, another juror, had expressed sia does not wish a renewal of hostilities I his opinion of Anderson's guilt befoie the which would inevitably result in the destruc- I trial, the court says: Lincoln, on his voir tion of the Ottoman empire, but her hesita- dire examination declared that he had no 2 ^U t^T!w tion ought not to be construed as weakness fixed oninirm. sm.l hr.lris thatt. thre ,h,^ fixed opinion and holds witnesses examined on that point, declared that they never had heard the juror make any such statement as to the testimony of Littlefield and Senator Zacharie. which, it is claimed by the defense would have materially aided the accused in proving his innocence, the court holds that both these witnesses could not have disproved the evidence of McGlowin, Collins and Evans as to the presence of An derson at the opening of the Vernon re turns, to which also Gov. Wychffe on the heaiing of the motion lor a new trial, had testified. Littlefield was on hand when the motion was tried, but not summoned by the defense. Zacharie was not positive as to the absence of Anderson and as to the inaccuracy of Collins" leport, disclaimed by the defense, he testified that they were in the main cor rect. Theie was no other evidence offered, and as to these points the motion must be denied. Business Failures.

Bold Trai Robbery in TexasMiscella neous Criminal Notes, [Special Telegram to THE GLOBE.] FARMINGTON, Feb. 23.The town of Castle Rock is excited over a genuine scandal sen sation, with the almost proverbial shooting accompaniment. The reports of the affair are so various, and some of them so EXTRAVAGANT. that it is an impossibility to get at the bot tom facts at present. I appears, however, that among the residents of Castle Rock is an old man named Odell, a farmer, and a man of IBRASCIBLE TEMPER. There is, too, in the Odell family, a Mrs. Odell. who, if not a better man than old Grant." seems to be a better man than Odell, for, it is asserted, she runs the farm and attends to the Odell family business gen erally. As an assistant upon the farm, Mrs. Odell has had in her employ a YOUNG MAN NAMED JUMP. Monday last, so the story runs, the male Odell, returning suddenly to the house, dis covered Jump and Mrs. Odell in a CRIMINAL RELATION. He raved and stormed about the premises for a while, but resorted to nothing more serious at that time. Wednesday last, how ever, he returned home armed with a loaded shot gun, evidently secured for'the purpose, the contents of which he FIRED INTO JUMP'S PERSON, while he was engaged in drawing a pail of water, inflicting serious injuries. This is one story. O THE WIFE'S SIDE, however, it is alleged that the shooting was the result of the old man's irrascible temper and unfounded jealousy. I is claimed for Mrs. Odell that she was sweeping her bed room, and having occasioUnPton I assise* nei It TO CLOSE THE DOOR. While the door was thus closed, and Mrs. Odell was moving a glass at one end of the room, Jump being at the other, Mr. Odell suddenly flung open the door, exclaiming, "NOW, I'VE CAUGHT YOU!'" The above is a mere outline of the two stoiies current, as gleaned from neighbors. To-day Odell was brought here to answer to the charge of an assault with AN INTENT. ST.

The robbers fired five or six shots at the messenger nd rushing in overpowered him, cut the bellrope and had the express car uncoupled from the tram, and ordeied the engineer to pull over on a siding where the messenger was forced to open the safe from which they abstracted 52,50 in money, overlooking a package containing about $400. The robbers were all masked save one who covered the en gineer. The passengers were* completely demoralized, and thinking they would be isited, a furious scramble ensued in secret ing money and valuables. They were not robbed however. One of the party proposed going through the passengers, but the leader' commanded him to keep his place and come on. After securing the booty, the robbers mounted horses, hitched a short distance from the depot, and took a northwesterly! course. There were enough male passehgs aboard to capture the robbers, but they w^re so badly demoralized, that with tJ^e exception of the conductor and Capt. W. Apperson, who attempted to arouse the passengers to action, tiiere was no disposition to resistance shown.

ENGLISH STOCK MARKET. A Week of Sharp FluctuationsThe Miami Silver Bill with Other Causes Advances the Max'lcet. LONDON, Feb. 23.The Times says: The the result for the most part of speculation, Its maintenance, consequently, depends upon the present holders being relieved of their purchases by actual demand. The Econoinint says the rate of dis count in the open market has been firm at 1% per cent. The price of silver is due to the passage of the Bland silver bill, specu lative absorption of India councils paper, and purchases by Russia from Germany for coinage purposes. The stock markets have been subjected to very sharp fluctuations during the week. Tuesday the fall of prices was almost unparalleled. Statements were circulated that Kussia was massing large bodies of troops in Roumania, and buying silver from Germans to a heavy amount, that our government was hurrying preparations, and that Lord Derby would make an un favorable statement in the House of Lords that evening. This Lord Derby did not do. consequently there has been a fairly good renewal of confidence, and the result of which has been a moderate improvement in most securities. The effect of the passage of the stiver bill through the United States Senate by more than two-thirds majority was not at once apparent. American bonds prices at first showed a tendency to advance, probably in sympathy with the'general tone of the markets, but there has since been some genuine selhng which caused a relapse. The American railroad market has been comparatively well supported. The Hostile Sioux. OMAHA, Neb., Feb. 23.General Crook re turned to-day from Indian Territory.

N EW YORK, Feb. 28.Mr. George Castle ton, of New York, injured in the collision this morning, died from his injuries this after noon. leaves a widow and two children. He was a large owner of real estate, and be lieved to be very wealthy. was a lawyer, having an office on Wall street, to which he was coming from his home when the collision occured. The fog continued throughout the doy and evening. About [7 o'clock the Erie ferry boat James Fisk, Jr., was in collision with a schooner, off pier 47, North river. The blowing of the steam whistle and cries for help attracted the attention of boat men on shore who put out in the fog in the direction of the sounds and rescued the pas sengers of the Fisk who had been swept overboard by the jib of the schooner. These reported that several standing beside them at the time of the collision must also have been thrown into the sea, but the only per son reported missing is Judge Anderson of Illinois. A deck hand of the ferry boat, Charles Ebert, of 181) Seventh avenue, was killed. The schooner was subsequently found at a dock and badly shattered. The ferry-boat had ker guards and a portion of the cabin torn away. A later account of the collision states that the report of Judge Anderson being missing is an error. Frederick A. Freeman, of Dixon, 111., was inquired for at the ferry when the passengers landed, but he did not respond. I does not follow, however, from this circumstance, that any mishap has be fallen Freeman, as the passengers went their several ways as soon as they reached New York. RAILROAD AID ROADS. Counties in Missouri Threatening Resist ance to the United States Courts. S T. LOUIS, Feb. 23.The people of St. Clair, Henry and some other interior coun ties of Missouri, are holding mass meetings upon the county bond question, and the at tempted enforcement of payment by legal process through the United States courts, which has just been inaugurated. The reso lutions adopted are very strong, and in some instances declare the payment shall be re sisted by all possible means. They declare that the bondholders have put compromise out of the question by adopting this course. The county judges of several counties have been ordered to appear before the United States court at the March session to show cause why they do not order the levy to pav the defaulted interest on these bonds, the great bulk of which were issued a few years ago in aid of various railroad enterprises. The action of the court wiil then bring the long pending troubles between the counties and bondholders to a crisis. ALL AKOt.VD THE GLOBE.

CEUSHEDTODEATH TERRIBLE ACCIDENT LAST EVENING How Mat. Donohoe Came to an I'ntimely EndThe Inquest on the BodyWhat was Found on Hi Person. Yesterday evening about 5 o'clock, a terri ble accident happened in the Sixth ward which terminated fatally to one poor fellow and was well nigh causing the death of half a dozen others. I appears that Mike O'Brien has a contract for opening Ohio street, and on Wednesday he set on- a gang of men cutting away the bluff at the back of Yeorg's brewery. For three days an old, gray and partially bald man had hung round, trying to get a job yesterday he was set to work wheeling. I the morning the men fired a blast, and then proceeded to clear away the debris. At about 5 o'clock, as some half dozen of the men were busily engaged in the excavation they heard some one call, "look out, the rock is falling." They rushed from under the overhanging bluffs, but the poor old man before referred to, glanced for a moment in bewilderment toward the fear ful avalanche that threatened to crush him. That moment was fatal, for as he started to run, a huge sand rock weighing some two thousand pounds, struck him upon the leg, hurled nim to the ground, and rolling over covered him. Following close upon the rock, several tons of earth and sand fell in a mass from the heights. In a few minutes the men returned, half scared, to rescue their comrade. With almost superhuman effort they raised the ponderous rock, and drew the victim from under. They sat him up for a moment, but he did not speak. They then hurriedly conveyed him to the brewery and laid him in Mr. Yeorg's parlor when the men say he in a few moments breathed his last. I a very short time a GLO BE reporter was on the spot. He found deceased to be a man of at least sixty years, the little hair upon his head being as White as snow. I examining him he found the left leg broken about six inches above the ankle and the vertebra of the neck dislocated death must have been almost in stantaneous. The coroner was notified and at 7 o'clock he appeared upon the scene of the dreadful catastrophy, and empanelling a jury pro ceeded to hold an inquest. The first witness called was Fred Graupman, who said I don't know the name of deceased. I have only known him a day or two: he came for work and today was put on: I saw him alive last at about five o'clock, when he was at work with me on Ohio street: I heard some one call "look out:" the other men jumped out and so did deceased, but a big rock struck him on the knee and knocked him down: the rock struck him again on the neck we got him from under the rock and carried him to the brewery: he gave a few signs of life as we carried him. Henrich Dikamp said: I saw deceased just whed he tried to run from under the falling bank I saw a lump of sand-ruck fall on him he was working with a wheelbarrow in the morning we had a blast and I think some of the rock was loosened but did not fall down. I do not think there was any neglect on the part of any one. Adam Fiitz and August Ott gave corroborative testimony, and Mike Conroy said, I know deceased five years. His name is Mathias Donohoe. Ho lives with Mike Feeney in a shanty between Iiosabell, Wacouta. Fifth and Sixth streets. I was at the top of the bluff: heard some one call out "look out." I looked over the edge of the bluff and saw a rock strike Donohoe behind on the leg. fell down and the rock rolled over on him and covered him all over. We took him from under the rock and carried him to the brewery. The coroner was about to search deceased when Mr. O'Brien stated that Mike Conroy had searched him and found $167.62 on him and handed it over to him, O'Brien whereupon the coroner swore Mike O'Brien, who rsaid I am the contractor for opening Ohio street. I was not on the spot when the accident happened but heard the men call out. I rushed up and found Donohoe crushed beneath a heavy rock. We lifted up the rock and drew the man out. I did not appear as if his neck was broken, but his leg was broken. We carried him to the brewery and sent a man for a doctor and clergyman, but before the man had got far one of the men told him it was useless going for the man was dead. Mike Conroy search ed the pockets of deceased and found $167.62 and gave it to me. The money was handed over to the coroner, who gave O'Brien a receipt for the amount. The jury after a few moments de liberation brought in a verdict of accidental death. The reporter made enquiries of several persons who had known deceased for seven or eight years. from which he gleaned that deceased worked generally in the summer as a section hand on the Lake Superior road: that he had no family or relations in St. Paul, but made his home with Mike Feeney, who came from the same part of Ireland with deceased. In vis iting the spot where the accident happened, the reporter found a cutting of some twenty yards into the steep bluff, which at this point is composed of white sand and a soft sand rock, very dangerous, from the liability of slides if proper precautions are not taken. The rock which crushed poor Donohue was a very soft sandstone about eighteen inches thick and from nine to ten feet in diameter. The body was taken over to Feenej 's house. Trade With Brazil.
