tinople telegraphs that the presence of
large bodies of Asiatic bashi-bazouks in.
the environs of that city causes much anx
iety to the inhabitants. They conduct
themselves in a most disorderly and violent
manner. Groups of those irregulars march
through the streets with a swaggering gait
Insulting and assnnlting whmsoever who
happens to incur their ill will.
INSULTS TO FORK ION OFFICE11S.
Amongst those who have been subjected
to violence at the hands of these half sav
fcges are an English military officer and one
Df the American naval officers. A few days
ago these Zebicks carried their violence so
lar us to kill one man outright.
BEYOND ALL LAW.
The authorities seem wholly unable to
control these ruffians. When appealed to
for protection they reply evasively and seek
to shelter themselves from responsibility by
Alleging the difficulty of enforcing strict
discipline under existing circumstances.
HUMAN FIENDS.
Complaints continue to pour in of out
rages by the Zebicks or Asiatic Bashi
Bazouks, but no effort is made by the gov
ernment to chcok their atrocities. On
Saturday last five of these ruffians
Attacked a Christian family at a place
midway between Pora and Therapia.
WOMEN OUTRAGED.
This family consisted of the father, wife
rod a daughter sixteen years of age. Alter
beating the father till he became insensible,
khe fiye soldiers subjected the two women
to the most horrible outrages. The perpe
trators of this outrage have not been ar
rested, and will probably escape all punish
ment
THE TURKISH CHAMBER DISSOLVED.
The Herald correspondent at Pera re
ports that after a long discussion on the
budget, the Turkish Parliament has decided
to make considerable reductions in the sal
aries of the Ministers. This question was
mooted in the Chambers some time ago and
has been strenuously advocated by some
Deputies as a means of placing more funds
it the disposal of the government for the
expenses of the war. The measure was so
distasteful to the Ministers that they ad
vised the Sultan to dissolve the Chamber,
and it was accordingly dissolved yesterday.
CAPTURED RUSSIAN GUNS.
Nine Russian cannon were recently cap
tured at Zeil, on the Circassian coast, and
have arrived recently in Constantinople.
The Turks have been so unsuccessful so far
in this campaign that the government are
glad to have any small evidence of success
to appease the excited populace of the capi
tal.
FIRING ON THE FRENCH FLAG.
The correspondent of the Herald at
Batoura telegraphs that the Turks yester
day fired on a French vessel which was try
ing to enter that port. The Consul has
demanded an explanation and apology for
the insult to the flag.
TURKISH CLAIMS OF VICTORY.
The W??AT.n correspondent in Constanti
nople states that the Turkish newspapers
continue to buoy up the spirits of the peo
ple by publishing reports of continued de
feats of the Montenegrins. No reliable in
formation is published. They also state
that Nicsics has been revictualled,
THK PEACE PARTY AND THE I"ORTK.
A correspondent at Constantinople in a despatch,
ria Athens, says:?"The peace party trains ground
laity. At a council ol war on Wednesday last, at
which the Sultan presided, several of those
present, especially Mehmed ituciidl Pacha, strongly
idvocated peace. Ruchdl said it was now quite
;lcar that Turkey could not hope for active aid
(rom any Power, and could not carry on the wur
tingle-handed. He urged that advantage should be
taken ol Russia's receut declaration that she does
not desire conquest, and that application l>e at
once made to some friendly Power to obtain an
armistice during which peace might be arranged,
lie Implored the Sultan to take this step
LOOKING TOWAlU) GERMANY.
"The majority or the council were, however,
igainst Mehmed Ruchdl, anil his proposals were de
ferred." The correspondent concludes:?"1 am
Assured that the peace party look to the German
Ambassador for support, aud that he does all
in his power tp sustain them. They Ruin a great
advantage by Ruchdl Pacha thus publicly placing
blinsell at their head. Tbore must, however, be a
disaster before the peace party can succeed."
DISSENSION IN THE ENGLISH CABINET.
The Edinburgh Scotsman'* London correspondent
writes that the Karl of Derby and the Marquis of
Salisbury hold very opposite views regarding a
Russian occupation of Constantinople. Lord Salis
bury believes Prince fiortschakoff will not advise that
the city should be held for a long time. Lord Derby
would at once inform Russia that she will only
march there at the risk or meeting British as well
la Turkish troops. The writer adds:?"I am in- j
formed that whatever may be the truth about tlie j
reported disunion the Cabinet has taken certain |
military precautious A Urge army corps is ready
tor immediate service and transports are In readi
ness."
TllE CROSSING OK THE DAN I BE.
A correspondent In Vienna says:?"Conflicting
accounts come from Ronmanla. Those who regard
operations as Imminent explain the general move
ment or the Russian troops during the last week as
* preparatory movement for concentrating the
forces which were hitherto scattered about on the
rantonnieuts. The departure of a portion or the
headquarters on the 11th lnst. from Ploejestl to
Alexandria is regarded a* a surer Indication of Im
minent action, while the unusual precautions
taken to prevent anyone fTorn approaching the
Russian lines goes to contlrm this Impression, one
account states that all tho Inhabitants have been
ordered to withdraw from the shore. Believers in
this speedy commencement of operations actually
name June 18 as the date on which the first attempt
to cross the Danube will be made.
PROBABLE DEI.AY.
"From another source, which is usually not less
weli informed, it is positively stated that a fortnight
or so will elapse befoie the Russians arc ready to
undertake operations along the whole line. This
partv as a reason for their belief cite the Imperloct
state of the preparations. These were found so
rar backward on the Emperor's arrival at I'locjesti
that he Is saul to have expressed his displeasure.
Despite the obstacles caused by rains, it was
thought more might have been done II it had not
been for want oi harmony ami co-operation, ex
tending even to those occupying very high posi
tions. The establishment or magazine* close to
the Danube ami the collection or bridging mate
rials arc particularly considered very backward.
I'.l'KElr OK THE CZAR'S ARII1VAI..
"Since the Czar's arrival iresh energy has been
Infused into all the preparations; but this at tlrst
wa- somewhat neutra.lzed by various railway
bieakdowns. Those who do not believe In Imme
nse operations explain the present great move
ment of troops by the supposition that the com
maoder-in-Chiei had reasons to considerably
modify his plan, and that according to the new ar
rangements six of the eight army corps are to be
concentrated on the comparatively short line be
tween tilurgevo and Iskis, on the river Alnta.
Klttier of the loregolng opinions Is plausible, and
both are lounded on observation on the spot."
ACTIVE PREPARATIONS.
Another Vienna correspondent says :-"lt Is
y^mfUt ttoat ten da*s m:g? cluisc before all will be
ready. Intelligence which arrives here points to
Qlurfevo and Tnrnu Magtireli ad the most impor
tant places ol interest. At the former steam
launches have already arrived and a large siege
tram is heimr collected, while three corps?the
Eighth, Twellth and Eleventh? are ready to con
verge on Miat point.
TUK PllOIIAIII.E POINTS OK CROSSING.
"On the Aluta, behind Tiirnu-MairureU, the Ninth
corps Is in waiting, and the Thirteenth is on the
man-h to join it. The Fourteenth corps Is in
lialalz, Imt will proceed westward, and probably
cross about Tchernavoda or Kalurash with the
Fourth corps. Ostentatious demonstrations are
beiuK made in the neighborhood or lbrail. Kent and
Ismail; but I Imagine they arc merely leints."
MENACING RU8TCHIK.
From seven o'clock in the evening nutii mldnlpht
on Sunday large bodies of Russian troops of all
arms were marching from Glurgevo to Slobosia,
opposite Rustchuk.
AWAITING KEl.NKOKCKMKNTS.
Still another correspondent at Vienna says:?
"The crossing of the Danube will be postponed
until the arrival of the Fourth and Thirteenth
army corps ut the front, which will not likely ?>e
be lore the '.'8 th Inst. At present the Eighth, Ninth,
Eleventh und Twelfth corps, about 100,000 men, are
concentrated between the Aluta and Olorgeva
HEAVY HA INS CAUSE DELAY.
A Bucharest correspondent says:?"The
conclusion that the Roumanian army
will not cross the Danube is somewliut
premature to say the least. Rains
have again delayed operations on the Danube in
consequence of their effect on the roads, although
the river itseli haa not been materially affected.
OFFICER 0 K Hl'Yi
The Times1 Berlin correspondent telegraphs
that the German press comments upon
an inspired letter in the Vienna semi
official Wlitical Correspondence insinuating
that C'uptain Welleaiey, the British attache,
and suite supply the Turks with military
intelligence from the Russian camps. There
seems to be no' doubt that the Russians,
fancying themselves! betrayed, are remodelling
their urdre ae batait\e ou the Danube. While the
Turkish War Oitlce insists upon mak
ing a defence or the Balkans the decisive
stage of war the Turkish headquarters hope
to be able to assume an energetic; offensive In the
event of the Russians succeeding In crossing the
Danube.
SERVIA'S CONDUCT.
in order to avoid ground for the intervention of
Austria, .Hervia will maiutuin armed neutrality.
This has not prevented the conclusion of u treaty
between Russia and Servla. enabling Russia to
transport troops through Servla. Already 7,000
men are marching toward tiladova and Turn-Sev
eiin.
A DIFFICULT EXPLANATION.
M. Rlshcs, the Servian agent, gave explanations
to the I'orte yesterday respecting the visit of Prince
Milan to the Czar, lie repeated that it'was solely
intended as an act of conrtesy. M. eristics denied
that the Servian government followed a war policy,
and contradicted the report that works were pro
ceeding at Alexinatz. lie said the object of SeVvla
in the late war was to gain an extension of terri
tory in Herzegovina us far us the Narenta River,
but never to establish Servian independence. The
sovereignty of the Porte, said M. eristics, was a
guarantee for the advancement of Servia and the
unity of the race, whereas Servla, independent,
would fall under the domination of Russia or
Austria.
WHAT THE PORTE THINKS.
The Pone considers Prince Milan's visit to
tlie Czar au insult to the Sultan. Prior
to taking auy resolution as regards Servla, the
Porte has asked this Government to give an
opinion on the subject.
MILAN'S RETTBN.
On Prince Milan's return to Belgrade the Skupts
chlna will hold a secret session to consider a con
vention to allow the passage of Russian troops
through Servla.
Prince Mllan.ol .Servla will leave Bucharest on
Wednesday next lor Belgrade.
SKIIVIA MI ST U11IK IIKB TIMR..
If the purpose or Prince Milan's visit to the Czar,
says a Bucharest correspondent, was to press lor
leave to participate in the war, his representations
bare been futile. Prince Milan has received a hint
to maintain a passive attitude, being told that
Servla's self-denial will be reckoned for her good
and that her claims will not be overlooked when
the day of settlement arrives.
K&ULLSIJ PREPARATIONS.
The Times says orders have been received at
Devonport that no vessel, whose repairs are likely
to take any length of time, Is to be docked at eltlier
the Devonport or Chatham yards, which are to be
kept as clear as possible for any emergency that
may arise.
SCHOCVALOPP'S I.KTTKR IN ENGLAND.
The Vienna Political Correspondence's St. Peters
burg letter reports that Count SchoovaloiTs verbal
assurauces were considered periectiy satisfactory
by the British government. At the express desire
of the Kngllfih Cabinet he was authorized to state
in writing that Russia would respect absolutely
British interests touching the Suez Canal, Egypt
and the Persian <Julf.
IT PI.KA8K8 Rl'MMPB.
Reports from various Russian ambassadors show
that a favorable impression was produced by the
above declaration at other Kuropean courts. Tue
letter lurther says the warlike Indications in
(ireece and Servla are considered very inconveni
ent. Russia would not on accouut or Servla run the
risk ol auy coolness with Austria.
HAVE TUB TURKS BEEN TRAPPED?
A Cettlnje despatch says It was decided a week
ago at a Montenegrin councilor war not to seriously
oppose the reprovlslonlng of Ntestes, in consequence
ot the great loss indicted at Kristaz, ami because
the relief or the town has ceased to have any sig
nificance. The Turks by advancing into the plain
ot Nlcslcs have walked Into a trap, perhaps; for
should the Montenegrins block the Duga Pass the
Turk* will be unable to return. A lull is expected
lor the next few days.
THE PORTE'S HOME TROUBLES.
A telegram from Constantinople says the Arabic
journal El Jnwaib has lug published an urticie at
tacking the Turkish government lor the despatch
of 2uo.ouo kilogrammes or damaged biscuits toTre
bl/.ond. the i liiiiiiber of Deputies demanded ex

however, declined to come to the House, other
members or the Cabinet attended the sitting and

him. The Chaml>er ol Deputies yesterday voted a

[BY CABLE TO THE HEB1LD.1
London, June 18, 1877.
The days roll by pleasantly for General
Grant here, if a round of honors
and feasting be at all enjoyable. He
is destined to experience every phase
of the pleasures which "society"
gives itself. He has already had dinners,
receptions and civic honors, and this morn
ing he encountered his first breakfast enter
tainment in England.
AT BBEAXFAST WITH MB. BMA1.LEY.
It was at the beautiful house, in Hyde
Park square, of Mr. George W. Smalley,

Spectator; Frank Hill, editor of the
Daily News; Bight Hon. James Stans
field, Minister Pierrepont, General Badeau,
and others. John Bright sent his
regrets at his inability to attend
on account of a previous engagement.
It would be impossible to give in a
few sentences an idea of the pleasant
nature of the gathering. Around a board
laden with the succulent delights of the
season, the "garnish of brains," of which
dear old Oliver Goldsmith sung, insured a
flow of conversation worth a great deal to
have the privilege to enjoy.
THE BEFOBM CLTTB BANQUET.

apologies for non-attendance.
THE DINNER.
The dinner itself was among the finest
ever given in London, the cuisine of this
association of Liberal gentlemen being cele
brated all over the world, and free from all
danger of its chef ever being called on to
fight for his reputation in the courts,
as the Napoleou of the soup tureen who
composes banquets for a rival club was
obliged to do of late. The table was a pic
ture in itself, not to speak of the good
things between the top and bottom of the i
menu.
MR. FOngTEB'B SPEECH.
Earl Granville, as soon as the cloth was
remowd, proposed the health of Her Majesty
the Queen. To this.the Right Hon. William
E. Forster responded in a singularly elo
quent speech. In the course of his remarks
he referred to the great services of General
Grant in the cause of human freedom.
THE ENTBNTE CORDIAL*.
He dwelt with particular emphasis upon
the importance to civilization of the cultiva
tion of amicable relations between the two
great countries, England and the United ;
States. With great ielicity he pictured the
results ot such a state of friendliness, and
elicited continued cheering.
?t'MAN ADVANCEMENT.
Passing on to a more practical branch of
his subject he amplified upon the oppor
tunities for advancement to the human
race which a hearty concord between
the two nations wonld give. He saw
in it the acceleration of discoveries
in every branch of science, the material
progress of the masses and the setting up of
loftier standards of private taste and public
virtue.
HATES COMPLIMENTED.
He paid a marked compliment to Presi
dent Hayes upon his "reunion policy,"
which would end by making the United
States what they were before the war?

the health of "the illustrious statesman and
warrior, General Ulysses S. Grant," allud
ing in the course of his pithy speech to the
beneficent results accruing to both nations
from the settlement of the Alabama claims.
"England and America," he said, "nay,
civilization throughout the universe recog
nized in General Grant one of those extra
ordinary instruments of divine providence
bestowed in its beneficence to the human
race." ?
GENERAL GRANT'S REPLY.
Upon rising to reply to the toast General
Grant was greeted with a perfect storm of
applause.
"I am overwhelmed," he said, "with
the kindness shown by Englishmen
to me and expressed to America. I regret
that I am unable adequately to express?
even with tho temptation to do so of the
omnipresent enterprise of the New York
Hebald?(cheers)?to express my thanks
for the manifold fraternal courtesies I have
received,
perhaps a book.
"Words would fail, especially within
the limitations of a public speech, to ex
press my feelings in this regard. I hope,
when an opportunity is offered me ot calmer
and more deliberate moments, to put
on record my grateful recognition of the
fraternal sentiments of the English people,
and the desire of America to render an ade
quate response.
LOVE or TBI MOTHER COUNTRY.
"The speech of Earl Granville," he con
tinued, "ban inspired thoughts in my
bosom which it is impossible for me ade
quately to present. Never have I lamented
so much as now my poverty in phrases to
give due expression to my affection for the
mother country.
A LOFTY HOPE.
General Grant spoke under the pressure
of unusual feeling and continued with
unusual eloquence to express the hope
that bis words, so far as they had
any value, would be heard in both coun
tries and lend to the union of the English
speaking peoples and tho fraternity of the
human race.

No decision lias yet been arrived at in the all im

Chamber ol' Deputies and speculation is rife as to
what course tile Senate will pursue. The question
will come up lor discussiou in the Senate to-day, and

the slgnul lor the renewal ol Internecine striie.
There can be 110 doubt ol the deep Impression made
by the uuwiae action ol President MacMahon and
his advisers on the minds ol the people, especially
on the republican masses. The acts ol the govern
me nt are watched with the deepest interest and
with a strong suspicion that preparations lor a new

lUNUKK OK CIVIL WAK.
Such is the tension of the public mind in France
that it would require very little to provoke a col
lision that might easily drift into civil war. The
monarchical conspirators think they can use the
army to overthrow the Republic, but it is not cer
tain that they can do so. Duriug the past tew years
the sentiments ol the peasantry toward the Re
public have changed considerably, and it may be
well doubted IT even the utmost eil'orts ol the
clerical and monarchical parties combined could
induce any considerable portion or the rural pop
ulation to take arms against tne Republic.

[From th* Tuscarora Review.]
The usual sillUietis and quiel ot our town waa some
what rullled by u romance which, though wholly un
forsoeti, bids fair to lead to a lawsuit It soeina that IB
j tho year 1859 Mrs. , now a resident of our town,
I was the daughter of a wealthy citizen of Ohio, and la
tlie spring of 1SW became the wife ol a well-to-do
I youug man. Kuorlly alter the marriage, nowever. the
| young husband sturted lor California with u party wnu
"were about to cross ibe plains. For mouths and months
old the anxious young wilu wait in vain lor udiuga
troui her ubseut husband. At last, unable t<> bear tho
suspense, eliu aturtod in search ol hitu. Arriving iu
California alio icuruod that the traiu with which ber
j liuxbund uepitrted had been attacked ou tbe plains by
indiuus, und, as ruportod, every soul murdered.
| This, of coursu, was a terrible revelaiuu to
j the loud wile, and Mho wandered to und fro
i lu search of all tho world held dear lor
< her, look up her residence in California, where, a lew
' years later, she was courted and won by a Mr. ??,
who was totally uoitc<iuaintod with her former mar
riage, nor did she euligtiteti him on the subject. They
then loot' up iheir residence in Nevaciu, wbure they
have lived ever since, lie Ki ignorance of ma wifo'i
loi'inur marriage, una she thinking hor husbaud'i
bones still bltvuhing ou tho plains, where, years ago,
they had becu tell by the merciless redskins, lint
now comes the grund denouement A week or sa
since, tnu husband wbom she supposed dead I urns up
in Klko, after his absence ot tw< uty years, to clnlnj
his bride. Ol course her second husbund strenuously
objects und threatens tho interloper with ueuth should
he cross tho threshold ol Ills house to destroy tho
