'I'm* run'**." dtSOBSBflS lt ill? t-emparedly. "The Daily N-.vs'' sharply rebukes Lord Salisbury for peevishness and obstinacy. The Suakim business has been once more thrashed out in the House of Commons with the usual proportion of chaff to wheat. List Right's flebat* was more amusing than instructive. Mr. Morley spoke, Mr Gladstone upc kc. Mr. Stanhope spoke. Lord Randolph Churchill epoka. They were all good speeches, but when all had been delivered nobody waa mnch wiser than before, lt mtB known be? fore that thc Ministry meant to clear out the demahea from the vicinity of Su.ik.u_, do not mean to abandon Suakim, and do not mean to entar upon a campaign in the Soudan Nothing of real Importance beyond Ihat mult* from three bout** talk yesterday. Hie personal incidents were more imprerdve than the political or military declarations. Lord Randolph's speech was the event of the evening. Ha rose without a single ol,, er lrom his own side and aat down without one. All his aupport came from Liberals. His speech was throughout an at? tack on the Ministry nnd Ministers. He told the Ministry their policy was, tilly and sturid. He told Sir James Fergus*-' n he hnd met his Question about Suakim with bb insufficient an? swer, a flippant answer, a discourteous answer. He chaffed Mr Stanhope for his announcement that the Government knew their own mind. It ls an unusual /thing, mm*6. Lord 1'andoJph, perhn."is sejrioualy, for a Britnsh Goxernment to know their own mind. He chaffed Lord Salisbury about his unlucky ? black man'' phrase. He ridiculed and denounced both Lord Salisbury aud his colleagues lu tba Commons for alleging that an opinion rxptetmeA by the Prime Minister in the Honse ot I-orda against the retention of Suakim In the tgyptian interest was a personal opinion. This telling and brilliant speech was listened to by a full House with extreme interest, and is relented by the Tones with extreme bitterness. They are beginning to understand what they hive to expect from the leader they have driven from the Ministry. They heard with delight of his journey t-, South Aimil's, and with chagrin that Um journey wart abandoned ; for abandoned ir is, though Dot primarily ior political NMsm. Mr. Chaplin, whose strong point it not discretion, challenged Lord Randolph to move a rota ol ensure on tho Governments "Give me a dayl" responded Lord Randolph instantly There could hardly be a mora open declaration of ho-.tility. Tn default of serious topics. Mr. Gladstone has been indulging in a little political gossip. Lord Hartington & retirement from the National Lib? eral Club nnd his refusal tc retire from Ihe Liberal benches in the House of Commons, ace both discussed with that laborious precision ciiaratteristic of Mr. GHadrtOM srhea bc wishes to ba playful. He b;:s, however, ?_ serious object The breach between the two sections of the Liberal party is not even yet wide enough lor him, and he is doing his best to make lt lore ver ina unusable. " The time has come for them to go," says the badu of a once unit<*d party. " The Liberal-Unionists are tha most effective foes we have to deal with." Besides, they annoy him. He tells us how, aud tho passage is pathetic. Whefl he Sfieak1- ifl thfl Hou.-*c he requires tin* sustaining power ol human sj IB pa thy. He looks round for it, hopiug to Bflfl I"ro fes&or Stuart's face, and sees Instead Mr. Finlay's. I*rofessor Stuart is the impulsive Radical who led Mr. Gladstone into the DoppiBg difficulty. Mr. Finlay is an eminent Unionist lawyer. " I ?ay," added Mr. Gladstone, " there is no politi? cal union whatever remaining between the Liberal-Unionists and the bulk of thc Liberal party * Las* nia-ht in the House he again complained of Lord Hartington and his friends for sitting on the Liberal benches. " I am siwa ki ng," bfl siiid, "for those about me;" thea ht pa fleed, ? but there are some gentlemen about me for whom 1 am Still lesa entitled to si* ak thafl for those opiiosite." '1 hes.- gaasj seem slight de? tails. To those familiar with club life, with House of Commons lite, and wnCi Mr. Gladstone's usual reserve on such topics, ihey signify more than half a do-.cn solemn political harangues. 1'ii.plc were glad lo hear last night that the Government attach less credit to Osman Digna's story than at tirst. Experts, however, are still inclined to believe it trii<* that Emin l'aeha is captured, bal untrue that Mr. Stanley is with him. Mr. Joseph Thomson, whoas authority jg high, expresses singularly positive belief that Mr. Stanley was not captured, and an equally positive conviction that he and his whole force were, annihilated before reaching Wad lal. With fiir William I'earce dies a mau of genius. He began life as a shipwright crib-red the great Clyde firm of John Eider ?fc Cern pany on a salary of $5(**i, ended n* sole pa ii ncr and owner of the li dcm shiphiiil'bn-' bflllBflflS in the world, lt is to him, more than to any other man, that the short* air-? of thfl At lani ic voyage is due.

Legltlme bas attacked the stronghold of the la* surgents, but whether Capo Haytien ls tn ruins to. day cannot be learned until news comes by cablt by way of Kingston, Jamaica, or until a vessel arrive* from Hayti bringing later news than was brought by the Clyde steamer Saginaw, which arrived at Quarantine yesterday morning. The vessel brought a number of passe ugai. from Santo Iwmlngn, Monte Christi and other ports where she touched, antoni whom were Dr. August, a full blooded Hay Man. and J. B.

Th* negro curled the youth, when old Mr. Nicholson Interfered, The negro thereupon diew a revolver, but Insteid ol flriag, closed with Nlcholion, and knocked him senseless with ihe pistol. Tho negro then fled. The following day Mr. Nlcholion told his friend! of tho negro's assault, and on Saturday lt was determine)" to oiganlro a posse and anest the millan. Information of thu determination of Ihfl whltei reached Ihe negroes In some way. It ls said that two white men gathered a party of negroes together at church Sunday night, and after haranguing them organized a force of ton of them to resist any attempt to arrest Miury, or an attack on bis bouse. These w**|e* aro known to the people of Wahalak, but their names cannot be learned, lt ls the settled determination to lynch them when found, and the people argue tbal when they are hanged lt will be the proper time to mako their aflBNfl known. The negro force raised by the two white men wenl to Maury's bouse, when the church meeting ad? journed, and concealed themtelvei In the smoke and cotton houses. Very soon after this the posse of white men came up the road and halted in front of Manry't house. Four of them walked ip to Um house, bnt found lt deserted They t;ien went to the smoke house, where they found three negroes. These men were asked where Maury was, bul they feigned Ignorance. While the whites were trying to gain some information from them a man on the outside shouted I ? Here ls Maury. Suppose you come and arrest him." The whites rushed In a body front the building, and as they emerged wero met with a volley from elghl or tflB muskets and shotguns. William Vaughan was seriously wounded by buckshot in thu left arm, neck ai. 1 shoulden, and another man, whose name the whites wli not reveal, received a slight wound In the hand. This volley came from the cotton house and was promptly returned by the whites, but fhe negroes, being behind &tout plank walls, received no Injury. Tha white- soon discovered that they wore fighting at a great disadvantage and moved around to the north s de of the stroetuis. Nasa they received another volley, resulting lu tbe instant death of Henry Maury and tho wounding of bis brother, J. F. Maury, In the arm ne*r the elbow. The whites now drew off and the firing ceased temporarily. Notwithstanding their losses, however, the pome dctorndncd to make another attack on 'ho cotton boase, approaching lt this lime from tho south fide. As they carno up to the budding they received tho third volley. the negroes apparently awaiting tim order to Are, as they had done In the two previous Instances. At this third volley Seth Cobb received twenty-two buokshot In the breast and stomach, tearing the entire front part of his body away. John Dow, another of the whites, was probably mortally wounded by a trlttol ball In fhe groin. The w.'.ltes again diew off for con itiltstlon, when lt was decided that another attack on the building with their reduced force would be use? less, anil they determined to walt for daylight and relnforrcmentt. While they wore consulting tbe ?flflBjSflfl rushed fruin thc cotton bouse to Maury's lu.use In a body and proceeded to fortify that building, and tho whltei wi nt back to Wahalak.

One negro waa seen lurking In the woods and was fleed upon by a party if whites, but he Instantly disappeared When the po-se from Meridian, under command of Captain rhomas Jamison, reached Wahalak they were told that their services were not required. Tbey say tho whites throughout Semper County are very much. Incensed and think that more trouble will oe. ?ur. It ls certain that If any of the negroes who fired m; tho whites are caught they will be killed at jio-c. Tho feeling, however, runs more against tba two white men who are said to have nrganfted the Mgrofla Not a single negro ls known to have received any njury. Two white men besides those already re? ported were wounded, but as their hurts are flight heir names are not given. It does not appear thal tho whites.
