Both Russia and Turkey Arming Them selvn. In this Country. [N. Y.

I., within the past two years, under a contract for 500.000 Pea body guns, a breech-loading rifle simi lar to the Martini-Henry rifle used in England. These rifles are still being manufactured for and delivered to the Turkish Government, several officers of which have been in this country for some months past inspecting the arms and superintending their manufacture. The Turks also have contracts with va rious firms in this country for 200,000,003 rounds of metalic cartridges and for a large number of cartridge cases, which are now being made at Bridgeport and New Haven, Conn., and other places. Russia has also received a good sup ply of arms from this country, in pur suanceof contracts with Smith & Wes son, Colt, and other manufacturers. These contracts were for revolvers, a large number of which have been de livered. CAwINaT W.sCElrSa. A Vain Attempt to latmateSl tIe Presl dent. [N, Y. Heraln.
