The British revenues for the year ending
March 81, show a surplus of over £00o,oon st4,r
ling, instead of the dellcit which was expeoted.
The London Times of yesterday explains this
as the result of certain special and temporary
causes, but the fact itself, like the resi nation
Lord Derby, will doubtless "surpri,e' official
circles in lit. Petersburg and strengthen the
position of Lord Beaconllieli at hoiie. If

Russia already eoeW a depreciation of 41

change at St. Petoe stlrg expects a declara
tion of war with Eng,land tL, be followed by
an open national bankruptcy. The imperial
government had barely estollshedl an equi
librium between its receipts and expeudi
tures, after maIny years of budgets showing a
deficiency, when tooe Turkish w ir br,,ke out.
For the year 1876 the ordlinary receipts were
$410,806,000, including somie $8,000,000 of the
revenue of 1877 paid in adivancie Ly meurchants
who had imported largely in excess
of their inlmuediatt needs during
the last quarter wille pIlle was yet taken at
the custoim-hoLuses. T'he ordinarl'y expeudi
tures were $414,563,200, which left a delle t of
$4.20,000, to say nlothing of the addttidh to
the debt thoun beginning to be inade fr the
expenses of mobiliziug the troops called iut!t
in expeotation or war. We have biefore us the
estimates for 1878, wiich anticipito a revenuel
of $440 292,200, including all the aniounts
drawn front extraolrdiIIar 't S. iutI.i', such as t he
sum of about twenty mi ilions f'ronm the 5 ter
cent foreign lon of 1876. I nsmiuch as af er
deducting this the amlount to be raised fiolui
the people is somewhat lalrger than the rev
enue of 1875, a year of peace and unusual
prosperity, it will be seen that, with her
crops unmarket.d and her labor market de
ranged, Rusasi miutt meet a lucre lsed bur
den of taxation. The estimated expenditure
for 1878 equuls the reeilpts, and is a trifle
over 600,000,000 of roubles, without including
the outlay on account of the war. Up to De
cember 25, 1877, the Russian treasury hadl
been called upon to pay $317,180,000 as thei
expenses of the Bulgarian and Armenian cam
p , the funds havinig been obtained by
two home loans in paper of 300,000,0tl
roubles and by a foreign loan in coin of
100,000,000. Up ti the present tinme, especially
as salr the armistice of Adrianople additional
forces were called out, the war must havo
cost Russia $400,000,000 at least; andi as the
notion of Turiev's ever paying an indemnity
is simply absurd, this sum must be added to
the Russian debt, which will then amount to
about $1,800,000,000, the addition meaning that
some $S0,000000 a ear must hereafter be pro
vided for in the budget. The Russian leieie.
pointed out three months ago that while t he
value of the paper rouble was steadily falling
the neoesi~ares of life had of course be
come much dearer, the arrears of taxes
had Increased and insolvency was sadlyv
common. In two years the number of
casee of bankruptcy adjudicated by the conm
mercial tribunal of Moscow--excluding all
amicable settlements--had risen frimin 68 to
11$, and their amounts from $3,887,000 to
$23,100,000. The volume of paper currency
had been inflated one-third, and amounted
to $784,000 000, to which should be added such
items as the 50,000,000 roubles issue made on
the thirteenth of March of treasury obliga
tions, which are redeemable in September and
bear interest at the rate of 4;, per cent per
This is not an encouraging prospect for the
rulers of a nation about to enter upon a sec
ond war infinitely more severe, more perilous
and more expensive thin that which has just
closed. The eminent French ecenomist, M.
Paul Leroy-Beaulieu, when the armis ice was
signed, regarding the war as over, calculated
that for many years to come Ru-si must
raise an annual revenue of 640,000,e00 ir 650,
000,000 roubles, which would impose an addi
tional annual burden of $70,000,000 on her
subjects, the greater portiin of which
sum must come Irom licreased duties on
sugars, brandy, salt and tibacto. Such a
burden must be grievously f, It in a country
which lacks the elasticity of res urces found
in highly civilized nitinis organized in some
sort of conformity wt h tile principles of po
litical economy, such as England and France;
and it is not surprising that Prince Gortscha
koff and the En peror Alexander contemplate
the future with less en, husiasm thait the Pan
slavists of Moscow or the lieut'enints who are
lounging as couquerors abt)ut the cafes of

I notice that Lord Napier has completed a
scheme to enbody 250,000 solhliers in India,
for service abroad (but 45,000 as at first pro
posed), but following the usual cautious plan
of the home auth tritles, the plan that so
vexed and disconcerted Napole n in the
Spanish campaigns, and exhausted him so
completely by compelling himll to keep enor
mous arimaments on fi.t without correspond
ing results, there will never be more than
40,000 to 00,000 men in the field at one tune;
the remain Ier to be traiined as fast as may be
required to supply reinforcements and
11ill vacancies. he same plan is to
be followed, I hear, with respect
to the two corps d'armec now ready
for service in England. The scheme, as
have been Informed by English officers en
gaged in military obset vations here, is to
Ieep on foot abroad not to exceed at any time
more than three corps d'armee in addition to
two at home, for any emergent

Large numbers of British olcters have been
engaged In exploring the state of this oast

It is claimed by the English officers that their

1 have been informed that a commissEon of
(Greek and English officers have for several
days been studying the plan of campaign pre
pared by the Enigi sh war department. This
plan Is known to have been in existence for
upward of a month; but that Ipotion of it
which is intended for the Greeks has only
lately been submitted to the authorities here,

preserving liberty of separate action the
"Greeks will not attempt oplerations near hllrln

A SIRIuKE OF LIGIHTNIN8G.
Lig htnlrg Mirikinnr In a Dozen Different
Parts of a I Ity at the Naine Time.
The D)etr;it Free Press of March 27 says:
At 5:30 last evening the' community was
startled by a blinding lhash and a trremelndoos
crash of tlhunder, and it is entirely beyond
estimlte to guess how manly personis re
marked upon the imnulse of the nmment:
"Guess that struck near here." FE oum the re
ports which were current upon the streets
list night it is fair to conclude t hat the stroke
of lightning In question was one of the most
remarkable electric eccentr-l.ities on record.
inasmuch as Its effect was felt in all parts of
the city, while the illumination was very
general. The most direct and serious result
of the exphelion was the partial burn
ing of lire engine-hou-e No. 9, on Alexandrine
Avenue. The foreman, 1). Broie'rick, was
standing In the west door of the building
when the flash came, and not ..ting particu
larly affected, stepped into the yard to see
where the lightning struck. lIe immediatoly
bcwame aware that the lower to the enagle
house was on fire, while the roof to the stable i
was also burning. Meanwhile, the lightning
having burned the fire alarm telegraph wire,
the stable-door latches were tripped, and,
stunned and staggering like drunken met,
the horses, seeing their stalls open as usual
in case of fire, stumbled forward to their
places beside the pole of the chemical
engine. Broderick ran back Into the house to
give an alarm and found the hostler stunned,
working in half-dazed fashion to hitch the
frightened horses to the machine. The work
being accomplished. the engine was drawn
into the street, an alarm ws turned in from
station No. 125, and within live minutes after
the first shock Broderick and his hose and
pipenmen were half way up the tower doing
all in their p)wer to stop the tire. Besides
the almost miraculous escape fr,,m harm of
the men and horses at the engine.-huse, many
other singular incidents occurred. Mr. Foley's
house, on Crawford street, was discovered
to be on fire immediate ly after the thunder
crash. A fourteen-year old girl was sew
ing in the upper story of a house on
Franklin street, and was rendered nearly
insensible by the shock. Wh*-n she re
covered the needle, which she still held be
tween her fingers, blackened and softened by
the ebctric heat, had been bent in the shape
of a sickle. A gentleman living south of the
Alexandrine Avenue engine-house stood in
the back door of his house when the lightning
struck the building. He says that with the
crash he saw a sphere of fire several inches in
circumference leave the tower of the engine
house and dart In a southerly direction like a
meteor over the wires cf the fire-alarm tele
graph. A city lamplighter was upon his lad
der near the corner of Grand River Avenue
and Crawford street, trying to light
the lamp when the lightning came.
His torch was wrenched from his hand, his
ladder shook and turn. d, and he, very much
frightened, fell into the mud. Gratiot Avenue
car No. 41 was coting down the avenue,
when, blinded by the sudden light, the horse
attached to the car turned entirely around,
and with his head close to the side of the car
stood there whinneying and trembling, and
could not be coaxed to stir until he had been
loosened from the traces and led entirely
around the car back to his place. From all
parts of the city came reports of shatered
glass, shaking crockery an-l frightened men,
women and children, but as yet no fatal re
suits or even serious cases have been heard
of, although diligent inquiry was made.
There are people who apparently delight in
punching ho.es in new or curious coils, or in
defacing them by inscribing upon their faces
initials or something of th,.t nature. This is
all nonsense, and we are pleased to learn that
measures are to he adopted for punishing
those who indulge in this miserable Yankee
habit. The Committee on Coinage, Weights
and Measures have agreed to report favor
ably Marsh's bill, which provides that
every person who fraudulently, by any'
art, way or means, defaces, mutilates,
impairs, diminishes, sciles or light
ens the gold or silver coins which
have been, or may hereafter be, coined at the
mints of the United States, or any foreign
current or are in act ual use and circulation as
money with the United States, shall be im
prisoned not more than two years and fined
not more than $2000; and every person who
shall, with intent thereafter to circulate the
s ame, deface any of the coins aforesaid by
placing thereon, by any means whatsoever,
i any name, word, sign, device, character or
picture, or who shall utter or tender the same
as m ,nay when so defaced. shill be imprisoned
not more than one year and tined not nuore
than $1000; and coins mutilated or defaced as

A Somnambullnt, 1 hlle Asleep, Charging
HIimself With Murder.
IN. Y. World. April 21
As Sergeant Haggerty was sitting at the
de k in the Fifth street police station shortly
before midnight on Monday, a pale young
man entered the room.
"What do you want?" asked the sergeant.
"I have come to give myself up," answered
the yonug man, in a low voice.
"Conic to give yourself up?" said the ser
geant, half inquiringly. "Well, what's the
"I've killed my girl," replied the young
man, who seemed to grow paler as he spoke.
"Come, now," said the sergeant, forcing a
smile; "this is the first of April."
"But I killed her," pleaded the young man.
"I poked her head throught a window and cut
her throat from ear to ear."
The sergeant at first thought that the young
man was drunk, and then that lie was an ea
caped lunatic. He asked:
"Where does your girl live ?"
"She lives at No. 516 East Fourteenth street
and her name is Eliza Gleason," was the au
The sergeant called Soedial Officer Bissart
and told him to go to the house mentioned,
Just as the officer went away the young man
started for the door.
"Hold on," said the sergeant sternly. "You
are a prisoner."
The young man, not heeding the command,
continued towards the doorway, and the ser
geant hurri'd from behind the desk and
grasped him by the shoulder.
"Where am I ?" exclaimed the young man,
shudd.'ring and looking about him in a dazed
way. There was no reply to his question, but
he was locked up. The det-ective returned
from the residence of the young lady, saying
that -he was alive, and that when he informed
her of the charge the young man had made
against himself she thought some one was
trying to make her the victim of an April
fool's joke. Yesterday morning the young
man was taken before Judge Flammer, in the
Essex Market Police Court, and was immeli
ately discharged. His friends say that he is a
somnambulist, and that he was und, ubtedly
asleep when lie entered the police station. He
had been reading of Mme. Restell's terrible
death, and falling asleep, dreamed that he
had committed a murder. His name is Peter
Coby, and he is in the employ of the father of
the young lady whose name he mentioned in
the station. Dr. Austin Flint. Sr., and Dr.
Ranney think that it is a very extraordinary
case of somnambulism.
From a report recently printed in the Lon
don Times it appears that the postal savings
banks, under the direction of the British
government, produced a profit last year of
£245,849, or about $728,000, over the interest
