[Pall Mall Ouette.1
Rlomr, July 211, 1$77.--lt is curious to
observe and difficult to explain the re
appearance of a bitter feeling in Italy
against England, which was so strong
last autumn. England has always been
friendly toward Italy, and Italy would
have little or nothing to gain and much
to lose in a war with her; yet there in
little doubt that had the Itusso-Turklsh
war begun last September, Italy would
have thrown in her lot with Russia, at
the rt·k of a war with England. After
that time, however, there came a long
period of diplomatic maneuvering
during which Italy awoke to a sense of
the state of her army; how there were
scarcely enough rules in stock to arm
even her first line; how money voted
for the purchase of guns had been frit.
tered away without the guns being
ready, and so on. Mthe reallized that the
Duillo would not be fit for sea for an
other year or two, and that only one of
the big guns had arrived, and that was
lying at 8pezzia; and people began to
say, "What can HRssia do for us after
all, and what can she set off against the
damage that would ensue to our conm
merce fromt a war with England?" Now,
however, slnce the rapid advance of the
Russians in Europe; sineoo the effect of
torpedoes on ironclads has been ob
served; since sentimental party agita
tions have paralyzod the English gov
ernment, and Mr. Gladstone has done
his utmost to check all efforts to make
England respected on the Continent,
the Itallans forget their reasoning all
the old bitterness is reviving, and all
the evils that have or may come to pass
are laid at England's door.
To England is attributed the present
depressed state of trade; England is to
blame that the Italians have lost enor.
mous sums in Turkish stock and Eng
lish selfishness is keeping all Europe in
a state of uncertainty and preventing
the settlement of the Eastern questiont.
It is a melancholy fact, but there is a
feeling of actual contempt here for Eng
land. You at home do not feel it, and
may not much care that it exists, but it
is so. Glance at any of the newspapers.
talk with any Italian intimate enough
with you to express what he thinks, and
you will have no doubt about it. Only
the other day Faafulla, a paper form
erly, It is true, hostile to England, but
not of late, said: "The offensive
strength of England no longer ex
iota. 'I will not' is only a mask to
hide 'I cannot,' England as a part
of Europe has played out, and the ex
obhange of her wooden walls into iron
sides has only precipitated events and
destroyed her appearance of strength.
If England Interfered in the present
struggle Europe would certainly feel
the effects, and commerce would suffer
oonslderably, though not so much per
haep as is supposed; but would the re
sultot the Eastern question be altered ?
Not at all " and more in the same
strain. Italy condemns the selfishness
of England, but she is all the time seek
ing what, profit she may draw from her
friendship with Russia. Her policy is
always to "shout with the largest," and
Ruslsa is the largest now and she be
lieves Germany to be with her.
There is little doubt that the reports,
so often spread and as often contra
dicted, of an Italian occupation of Alba
nia have some foundation; if nothing
else, they ar meant for feelers. Signor
Melegari, the present Minister of For
eign Affairs, whenever he is questioned
in the House on foreign matters, has al
ways either been dumb or has stam
mered out a replly which few could hear
or understand. DIepretis, the head of
the government, has more than his
hands full witn the department of
finance; the other ministers are solely
devoted to their rey-ective offices.
There is no Visconti-Venosta in the
Cabinet; and though if he were there
he would, doubtless still be faithful to
the traditional policy, yet there would
be less risk of Italy involving herself in
real difficulties for the sake of some cov
eted gain.
THE NEW LABOR PARTY.
The Iaboring Men and t(reenbaeker, En
dleavoring to Amalgamate.
[National Rtpublican.]
PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 16.--A meeting of
the delegates from the Locomotive En
gineers' Brotherhood, the Trainmen's
Union. miners' and laborers' organtiza
tion, United Workingmen, Working
men's party of the United States and a
numberof the other labor organizations
was held last evening. The object of
the meeting was an attempt to amalga
mate the several organizations in one
combined effort to gain political power,
but as-far as could be learned, the meet
ing being secret, the attempt was a
failure, there being too many jarring in
terests, and the communistic spirit. pre
vailing to a great extent. More skilled
workmen were present to tight com
munism step by step, and expressed a
preference to gain their rights by the
allot. Reports were presented show
ing that seventy thousand men are now
united throughout the State in the in
terest of the movement, comprising a
half dozen.societies. The tone of the
remarks showed that the general senti
ment, as expressed by working
men, was in favor of the green
back movement, but it is not pro
posed to play second fiddle to the Wil
liamsport convention, to be held on
September 19, for if this were done the
tail would be larger than the kite. Cor
respondence was read from district or
ganizations, which tended to prove that
in all sections of Pennsylvania, and par
ticularly in the anthracite mining re
gions, there exists a deep and wide felt
sympathy with this or any movement
that will tend to ameliorate the present
suffering of the laboring classes, but
that to make the movement formidable
and effectual the greenback and labor
parties should be consolidated. A
prominent delegate, while favorable
to this project, said that he had
but faint hopes of the two parties
coalescing, but that eventually the
greenback and labor parties should be
consolidated. A prominent delegate,
while favorable to this project, said that
he had but faint hopes of the two par
ties coalescing, but that eventually the
greenbacks would be absorbed by the
stronger labor party, and that they
would control the nominations at
Williamsport. Still, to make assurance
doubly sure, the labor convention at
Harrisburg will be called, and from
present appearances a full State ticket
placed In the field eomposed of the
Greenback paty of the United Sttes
and Protective Labor party, the latter
the most powerful of all, ospecially In
Philadelphia. The only trouble that
need be appr-bended In making the
convention harmonlons throughout,
both in platform ant nominoeer will be
on account of the dissensions that have
already arisen between self-elected le.d
ore. There is no doubt In the aminds of
the labor party in this Sate that, with
proper organization they can poll 1tO,00t0
votes at the November election, and thus
hold the balance of power.
In Philadelphia alone there are now
14,000 voters enrolled, and activity is
being displayed in increasing the ranks
and persistently propagating the faitt.
I n conversation with severalof the dele
gates after the adj,,arnment, the oplo
ion was confidently expressed that, in
spite of the discussion last evening, the
matter of meeting the conflicting ideas
and Interests was simply a r uestion of
time, and that although the remarks
of a few (of the delegates were decidedly
communist in tone, the sober-second
thought would lead them to modify
their opinions, and by compromising
with the more moderate workiogm&,n
they thought they wcwuld gain victory
at the polls.

[N. Y. Times.]
The lRussian officers are not at all in.
dulgent, to their beloved allies, the
Hournanians, whose partfcipation in
the tklong of Nikopolis they utterly
disclaim. Apropos of this let me give
a description of a IHoumanLan "brave"
in his war-paint: He is a type of a olass
which, like the Dodo bird, is fast be
rconing extinct, and is therefore a curl
osity worthy of at least a passing word.
He is tall, as a rule, and handsome, of
the beauty known as a barber's block.
His hair, unusually lony, earefully
greased and still more earefully parted,
is in war times cropped as closely as a
prize lighter's. His whiskers, with
which no human persuasion would In.
duce him to part, are of the kind known.
tn England some years ago as "Picca
dilly falls," reaching to his shoulders.
His rather thin legs wear the tightest
of breeches, and the nattiest of
boots armed with spurs almost as longý
as those of a Mexican ranchero, with
loose rowels calculated to produce a
fine military effect as they .jngle
against his heavy sabre--dimensions 3,
feet by 3 inoches--when he swaggers
do-wn the Pons Mogoshol. His manly
breast is encased in a showy uptoo of
blue or scarlet, covered with bral.l and
brass and gilt buttons. On his heaol is
a blue or scarlet kepi with nearly as
much gold e rn broidery as he wears upon
his sleeve. He has no epaulettes, but
that is fortunate, for with them he
would be weighedi down with the weight
of his armor. If he is of an influential
family, he is an aid-de-camp to some
body, and has a lot of aiguillettes to
mark his superiority. He looks well on
horseback, but he is not really happy
there, and prefers the outside of the
Cafe Hugues or the balcony of the
Jockey Club, whence he can ogle the
women as they pass, and tell of his
lo., Les f ortur.., real or fancied, vnd
occasionally draw out his trusty fal
chlon, and feel its edge and show how
sharp it is.
EUCALYP4eNTHE.
A new liqueur called "euoalypsinthe"
has been rranufactured fron the leaves
of the eucalyptus. The valuable pro
perties of an infusion of the leaves as a
febrifuge have been long known and
appreciatdl, especially by residents in
Algeria, where the eucalyptus has been
extensively cultivated with beneficial
results; and Dr. Miergue a colonial
surgeon, has now succeeded, after many
experimoents, in distilling from the
leaves a liqueur which, while exhilarat
ing an grateful to the palate, possesses
also many useful medionial properties.
A correspondent of & French paper, who
has made acquaintance with the new
beverage in Marsellles, where it is
already largely manufactured and con
sutoed, preiicts that within six months
it will beaonse popular throughout
France, and Will everywhere take the
place of absinthe--the "green muse,"
which has temporarily inspired, only
afterward to stupefy and kill, so many
of the most talented of French writers
and poets.
DISME.NMION. AMONG OHIO W.ORIN4G
[Courier-Journal. ]
To add to the variegated aspect of
Ohio politics, the Workingman's party
of the State is now said to be inharmo
nious with itself, there being a Colum
bus wing and a Cinoinnati wing, the
Cincinnati wing being too communistic
to suit the wing designated Columbus.
An attempt has been made, it is said, to
induce the Cinoinnatians to withdraw
the State ticket recently nominated,
that a farmer may be put at the head of
the labor movement. So far the Cin
cinnati nominees are not inclined to re
tire. Their hands are not horny, but
they can stick. Their brethern of

on the 13th of September to nominate a
new State ticket and make a pew plat

The Governor General of the Danube
telegraphs from Rustclauk that last
Sunday some Russians and Bulgarians
massacred all the inhabitants of the
village of Yeni-keul, situated eight
hours from Osmean-Iazar, with the ex
ception of three women and two men.
At the village of Koazl, nine hours from
the same town, they put five persons to
death.
A teegram from the iovernor of
Tirnovi. addressed to his Highness the
Grand Vlzier, confirms all the previous
revports of the acts of barbarity cor
mitted by the Russians and Bulgarians
at the time of the occupation of Timeo
va and the neighboring villages, and
more especially that of the burning of
a mosque, in which the inhabitants of
OIameslkeul had taken refuge and in
w~och they were burnt alive. 1e adds
that the lussians compel Mussulman
prisoners, under pain of death, to fire
on the Ottoman troope who come to
their aid.
The Mushir Huleiman Pasha tele
graphs to the Minister of War that of
twelve unarmed Mussulmans of the vil
lage of Soukouloa, near u.skll Sghra,
who made their submission to the Rus
sians, seven were killed by the Bul garl
aae with blows from axes, and three
others by Cossacks. We have ases-.
tained exactly as possible the number
of dwellings burned, and of Museul
mans massacred by the Russians and
IBulgarians in the villages which have,
up to the present, suffered~ most from
the invasion of the enemy, and I here
with transmit you the renuit:
1. At Batak, an exclusively Museul
man village of the district of 8lstova
Houses, 100; Inhabitants--men, 200;
women, 300. Total number of victims,
So0. 8even of the victims are said to
have survived.
2. At Bolovan, a Musslmnll village of
the district of Tirnova,--Huses, 250;
inhabitants-men, 700; wormaa, 1%,)0; In
all, 1900. One person only is believed
to have escaped the massacrp.
3. At Carabounas-Houses, 100; men,
200; women, 300; victims, 500. Two per
sons escaped death.
4. At Kestenbol-Houses, 15c; men,

men, 400; victims, º15;0. There were
three survisors.
The following Is the number of houses
burned in the villages which were de
soerted by their ihhabitants before the
arrival of the enemy: Tranich Homri,

80; Bourouch, I(*#; K,)lJmna, 70; Ok
dijler, 210. Total number of houses
burned. P20.
It is further reported that the Mussul
man inhabitants of forty or fifty mixed
villages, each containing at least 100
houses, tendered their submission to the
Russians, but their fate is unknown.
You wiU agree with us that these fright
ful statistics form the most overwhelm
ing evidence of the pitiless cruelty of
tussiak policy.

Every other house lies open to insp.c
tion, for the Bulgarians fnished the
work of de:struction commenced by the
Muscovite soldiery. It was natural
enough, too; the latter came in with
their bloodl up from the fight, and the
ravahs, as liberated slaves, sought to
vent their fury upon their former mas
ters. The negroes did Itat San Domingo,
and there is no negro fresh from the
shores of the Congo whom I would in
salt by comparing him socially or intel
lectually with a home-bred Bulgarian.
There were some horrid scenes, they tell
me, in Sistova on the morrow of the as
sault, and for days after, the Turks were
hunted out of their hiding-places
and shot down like dogs, and race and
murder and pilage and every foul deed
which lust and brutality could imagine
was perpetrated, under the eyes of the
Russian officers, until there was noth
ing left wherewith to reproach the
Osmanli for last summer's atrocities,
except, it may be, in the number of vic
tims. But this was not the fault of the
Bulgarians, and they will do better
when the field for the exercise of their
reprisals shall have become more ex
tended. And when human victims were
wanted to their vengeance, they wreak
ed it upon inanimate things; every
house, from cellar to roof, has been gut
ted; chimney places and walls have
been demolished, fltors torn up in
search of concealed treasure. Handfulls
of wool, bundles of rags of every sort
and color, the accumulations of genera.
tions of Osmanli for the stuffing of their1
traditional divans, are scattered about
the rooms like a thick carpet, or lie in
heaps in the streets and gardens, where
even the fruit trees have been chopped
and hacked simply because they were
once dear to the Moslem. I don't think
this wanton destruction of property
caused me any very painful feelings; it
brought its own punishment with it,
for theae areamsontng brutes mrles
have occupled the comfortable dwell
lugs of their old tyrants with no one to
say them ary; and the soldier, even ol
the most olvitlized peoples, Is Inoiled to
"loot" when the ghting is over. Bub
It was sickening to gaze upon the bsht

Wii.srBu.sR, Aug. 20. -Between the
few hot heads among the strikers and
political demagogues who are just now
making capital for themselves the
strike continues, and instead of quiet

features. It is boldly asserted, also, by
men that certainoly ought to know that

he was positive that Frank B.
Gowen had paid agents in this coal re
gion to keep the pot boiling; in other
words, to engender discord and prolong
the strike. A leading operator, when
asked if he believed this replied that it
might be true. Scarcely a night passes
without some dificulty on tie ra.lroads
leading from this city to places North
and South. Passenger cars are stoned,
switches turned, boulders rolled on the
track and other dangerous and fiendish
work done. Trains are even stoned in
the day-time, and two gentlemen of this
city are now suffering from bruises re
ceived in this manner while passing
over the Lehigh and ~Suquehanna road
to Scranton yesterday.
Down at Plymouth, where a greatdeal
of lonely picket duty is done by the
State troops, soldiers have been shot at
from ambuscades at night, although so
far none have been harmed. In the
country the farmers are getting fleree.
Several were in the city to-day com
plaining that gangs of men are robbing
them daily of all kinds of provisions,
and they say that if prote,.:tion is not
given them they will be forced to band
together and drive the invaders out of
the neighborhoods which they now io
test. These marauders commenced their
foraging in a respectful way, but they
have now grown bold, defiant and reeke
less.
More trouble is reported at Wanaisfe
to-night, and troops, it is thought, will
be sent to that point before morning.
The proclamation of Gov. Hartranft
calling for three months' volunteers has
set many to thinking that the soldiers
will not leave this section as soon as was
anticipated. There were many who
hoped the boys in blue would depart
this week, butthey are now bitterlydis
appointed. If such a calamity should
happen as the removal of the soldiers
just now there would be fiery times and
no mistake. More mines are idle in Ln
zerne to-night than there were a week
ago, and the end is by no means at
hand.
There is a movement in Missisaippl
