On to-morrow it will be cooler and jnirtly cloudy or cloudy, with threatening of ruin. The Steamer Est ei.i.e is to g? t her certificate of good character from the government It is to be hoped she will muintain a respectable, law abiding reputation. The Admission to Congress of u delegate from the Indinu Territory, which the Indian Commit tee suggests, would be a severe blow to the lobby and perhaps the Indian King. The Attack by the striking cignrmakera on the young girls who have taken their places wus n very great outrage, and it is to bo hoped the guilty parties will be severely punished. Tub Point of the Rev. John Cotton Smith's sermon yesterday on the Turkish question was that the missionaries will exterminate the Turks if we give them time. Our own Indian experi ence proves that. As the Recognition of Din/, may possibly aid In preserving pence on the bonier it is soldo comfort to be informed send-officially that the administration will consider the question when it gets a little time. Nearly All the nations of the earth huvo been made to contribute to the exhibition of holiday goods now on t-ule in the city stores. The collection of treasures und curiosities fVoin India, China and Egypt is especially rich und valuable. _ A Protest is entered by tho Choctaw and Chickasaw eliiels and delegates against the bill allowing Indians to become citizens and at tho same time maintaining their tribal relations. There ought to be some more light on this Indian citizenship business. Father Preston's lecture last evening ou tho subject of ?'Education and tho Church" con tained nothing that bus not been repeatedly said on this question; hut it ay ill, nevertheless, uttraet n good deal of attention. He vehemently denies the right of the Slate to lie an educator. Train Wrecking is tho newest development in Hurieni in the criminal line. Tho attempt inude yesterday morning to wreck a train on tho Hudson River roxnl at that point was certainly a bold piece of business, mid the police are enti tled to credit for the efficiency shown by them in the capture of the desperate gang Yvho | planned the deed. The Sermons Yesterday.?Dr. ilepwotth and the Rev. Samuel ( olcord appear to have I come to the conclusion that Dr. Frothiugbuiu J Las gone far enough in his raid upon Chris- j tianity. lloth these gentlemen were rather severe on the founder of the new religion yes terday. Dr. Peddie. of Philadelphia, preached in the Fifth Avenue Baptist Church on tho "Compassion ol' Christ,"' Mr. llecolier on "The Individual Knowledge of Hod Contrasted with Orthodoxy' and Father Kearney on the "Preach ing of John the Baptist." Dr. Frotbiugliiim enlarged upon his creed, the eurdiual idea'of which is the converse of tho obi faith, Unit man ran do nothing without (hoi?namely, that God cun do nothing w nloui man.

Strong KITarts ?o Breed Trouble with Mfileo. It any simple people huve doubted hereto fore that a set of resolute intriguers is bent on getting np a Mexican war the scales must fall from their eyes w ith the prompt use which has been made of the local dis turbance at San Elizario. lbe unscrupu lous plotters who have embarked in this en terprise count largely on the ignorance and gullibility ot the American public, for it is not possible that they should succeed in duping anybody who is acquainted with the geography of the Rio Grande. If our peo ple knew as much of our Southern us they do of our Northern fron tier the abettors and accomplices of speculators in Mexican mines would not venture on these bold experiments upon popular ignorance. Macaulay once satii ized tiie dense ignoiauce of Eastern geog raphy which prevailed in his own country by representing an Englishman who fancied all the people ol India to be next door neighbors as inquiring of a person who had just returned from Bombay alter the health of friends in Calcutta, which is more than a thousand miles distant in a straight lino and at least fifteen hundred in tho usual course of a voyage. In like manner man} of our people regard all the troubles on tho Rio Grande as occurring in the sumo neigh* borhood, not considering that that great river is two thousand miles in length, and that it is fourteen hundred miles from its mouth to tsuu Elizario, where this local squabble over a salt pond is in progress. No illustration taken from our Northern frontier can quite do justice to tho ab surdity of representing this salt pond squabble as part and parcel of tho irrita tions growing out of tho cattle raids on tho Lower Rio Grande. Some ten or twelvo vears ago there was a l'cniau laid into Canada across tho St. Lawrence. It Fenian raids had become chronic, like the Mexican cattle raids, and Imd continued to this time, we presume nobody out of a lunatic asylum would think of representing the escape of Sitting Bull into tho western ter ritory of tho Dominion as part and parcel of the Fenian disturbances on the St. Lawrenoe. But the connection would be us close as the fantastic one attempted to be imposed on tho American public between the cattle raids on the Lower Rio Grande and the mutiny in favor of freo salt in a tar-oft re gion near the southern boundary of New Mexico. The riot over that salt pond in El Paso county, Texas, has no more connection with the cattle raids in another part ot Texas than tho cigarmakers' strike in New York has with tho Rosso-Turkish war. It will not quite do to reason about Texas as Mucaulay's stupid Englishman did about India. Texas is more than five times as large as tho State of New York. From Mon tauk Point to Niugara Falls is something of a distance, but it is short in comparison with the longest diameter of Texas. But ono might imagine lrom the representations of the crazy abettors of a Mexican war that the Mexican town of Mut amoros and the Mexican town of El Paso, both on tho right bank of the Rio Grande, are near neighbors, whereas, in fact, they are fourteen hundred miles upurt. Between tho eattlo raising parts of Texas and tho small, remote settlement at Sun Elizario there stretches a wilderness of six or seven hundred miles. The people of# San Elizario are mostly of Mexican descent. They became inhabitants of the United States by annexaticn at the close of tho Mexican war. They raise no cattle and aro subject to no raids from the other side of the river. They are bound by ties of race, religion and language to their Mexicau neighljors across the stream, and there is no such hostility between the inhab itants of the two banks us prevails seven or eight hundred miles below. They arc a re mote and secluded people, seven hundred miles from the nearest railroad and without communication with the outside world by the Bio Grande, which is not navigable lor nearly a thousund miles below this settle ment. It is ridiculous to represent a local riot in that remote place, surrounded by a vast stretch of wilderness, us having any connection with the troubles on tne Rio Grande which General Ord was sent to watch. The riot at San Elizario is of purely local orig.n, having been neither incited nor fomented lrom tho Mexican side of tho river. Fur more than two hundred yeurs the people of that region have hiul free uccess to the salt pond or springs in their neighborhood. Considering that salt would cost them twelve or thirteen dollars per bushel if transported from other places through a vast wilderness without roads it is no wonder that they resent being shut oft' from their usual source of supply. There is not a community in the world that would not act in the same manner under similar circumstances. Although they are resorting to u violout method of redressing a local grievunce their entente has no sort of connection with tho matters in dispute on tho Lower Kio Grande. The outcry inspired by tho reckless mining speculators who would gladly push tho country into a war with Mexico is equally a sin against knowl- | edge and a sin ugninst justice, for they know well enough that this affair near El Paso has no relation to the cuttle raids, Tho course of Governor llubbnrd, of Texas, in this matter of tho salt pond or suit pits does not raise that officer in public estimation. J lis telegram to the President representing it as an "invasion" is ridicu lous. It is no invasion, but a mere local disturbance in 1 exas, which the govern ment of that State ought to be ashamed to ask the United States to suppress. One battalion of Texas militia could erush it in bull an hour. Whoso fault is it that such a battalion was not on tlm ground? Governor Hubbard cannot pretend that he | is taken by surprise, for thin fracas ubout the suit deposit beguu several months ago. It was his business to attend to it. It was a disturbance of tho public peace within his Siato by its own citizens, which it was i his duty to suppress by its own militia. Governor Hubbard is an imbecile who has not done his duty. Had he possessed tho sagacity and foresight which befit his posi tion this second disturbance would not have occurred. He ought to have known that the peoplo of that distant settlement would uot quietly submit to be deprived of n long enjoyed privilege, which they re gardod as a right. There were two courses open to him. One was to secure to the in f habitants the enjoyment of this privilege without molestation, which would have re moved all ground of complaint; the other was to have sent to that distant set tlement a sufficient body of State militia to protect tho private claimants to the salt lakes or springs. Governor llubbnrd did neither. Considering the great expense of enforcing the rights of the pri vate claimants the wiser course would have boon to secure free suit to the inhabitants. The State of Texas, in tho exercise of its right of eminent domain, could huve taken this property for public use by making just compensation to its owners. To bo sure, it would have required an act of the Texas Legislature, but Governor Hubbard could have informed the owners that lie intended to recommend suchuction to the Legislature at its first meeting and Lave told them that meanwhile ho forbid tho local Stato officers to enforce their claims. Hud be done this the whole matter would have remained in abeyance until tho next meeting of tho Legislature. The cheapest and easiest way to dispose of tho difficulty was by taking the salt ponds for public use and making them tho property of the State. But if the Governor thought this inex pedient it was his duty to send to the spot a sufficient force of State militia to enl'orco the claims of the owners. As ho miserably failed to do either nothing was left for him but to upply to tho President for ledoral troops. Thoro is a military post in New Mexico within less than a hundred guiles of the scene of tho riot, whereas Stato militia would have to bo marched six or seven hundred miles through a difficult wilderness, and would arrive too late to bo of any service. Under these circumstances tho President was doubtless wise in acced ing to the application and trying to get tho Governor of Texas out of a scrape into which ho has fallen by his miserable inca pacity, inefficiency and want of foresight. We presume, however, that Governor Hub bard is not a fool. Ho is probably in sym pathy with tho knot of intriguers who are plotting a war with Mexico and a consent ing tool of this mischievous project. Hianley'ii (ontio Voyage. Dr. Petermann, of Gotha, says of Stan ley:?"His work is unparalleled in the whole history of discovery in the world." This is a commendation so outspoken lliat all tho persons who from the safe harbor of their easy chairs havo been at pains to de cry and belittle tho achievements of our hardy countryman will denounce it as an exaggerated estimate of what ho has done. But we trust they will first cast their eyes ! over the article by Dr. Petermann from j which we have extracted this sentence? i which article wo print to-day. It will be seon that this apparently extreme state ment is not made rashly or lightly, but in the light of a calm consideration of many of the famous feats of explorers, and espe cially with regard to its relation to the his tory of discovery in Africa. It is the opin ion of this competent authority that all the F.nropcan travellers for eighty years, all the scientific exploration of the continent mado in the lust thirty years, and all the Arabian travellers for a thousand years, have not done so much for the settlement of great problems of African geography as this one journey down the Congo. There is no one whose word on this subject is of more value than that of tho author of the article to which we refer. The Ilnpid Transit Elevated Uoads* As much misapprehension and doubt ex ists as to tho routes of tin? two lines of ele vated railroad now in courso of construc tion in tliis city we publish this morning for tho information of our readers maps showing these new rapid transit routes, with an accurate description of their ter mini and the various streets and avenues through and over which they will pass. On comparing the two lines known as the "Now York Elevated roud" and the "Gilbert Ele vated road we find that they accommodate as nearly as is practicable for such means of rapid transit all tho business and pri vate residence districts of the city, lho New \ork Elevated Railroad embraces in the loop formed by its lines the area between Ninth avenue as far as 110th street and thence northward to the Harlem River as a western line, und loail uticct, tho Bowery and Third avenue on tho cast sido of tho city. From this loop branches will extend outward to the princi pal East River ferries and lo the East River Bridge approach, and inward to Centro street and Park row and to the Grand Central Depot at Forty-second street. The extension northward along the west sido of the Harlem River to Kingsbridge is com mon to both lines. The portion of the New \ork Elevated road now constructed and in operation extends from tho Battery Park to Sixty-first street and Ninth avenue. The Gilbert Elevated road also forms a loop extending from the Battery to j tho Ilarlcm River, but its western line is | more toward the centre of tho city, and will j run through Church street, South Fifth avenue, Sixth avenno to Fifty-third street, : Ninth aveaue to 110th street and Eighth j avenue to the Harlem River, with the con necting links on the streets named. Except along West Broadway there are no exterior i extensions from the Gilbert loop, but there is I | an interior cross line through Murray, Chambers and Chatham streets, connecting the ea.it and west lines, and a short exten sion along Sixth avenue, from Fifty-third to bifty-iiinth street. Tho east side lino of tho Gilbert loop, starting from the But tery. follows nearly that of the Now ioik Elevated road to Chatham square but then posses eastward through Division street to Allen street, and through that street follows First avenue to Twenty-third street and Second avenue to its termination at the Harlem River, and thence passes across to tho end of Eighth avenue. Thus it will bo seen that tho great east side tene ment house districts will have two rapid transit lines, separated only by ono block, northward of Twenty-third street und ap proaching quite near each other down town, while the west side of the city, east of Ninth avenue, will also have two lines, with more irregular intervals between them. With this rapid transit accommodation and low fares the facilities for reaching any point in the city will be very great Ttf Death of (ihuil Osinaa Pacha. Special despatches received at the Hkbald's Loudon Bureau yesterday from Constantinople and Vienna bring the pain ful intelligence of the death of Osmnn Pacha. Despatches received subsequently state that it is rumored Osrnau Pacha took poison through a fear of having to submit to an amputation of liis log, which is re garded with horror by all true Moslems. The statements in regard to the wound bo received in the battle preceding his surrender have been conflicting, some accounts repre senting it as slight and others describing it as so severe as to render imminent the necessity of an amputation of the leg. In the absence of positive intelligence as to the immodiatc cause of his death we are led to believe it probable that intense grief and mortification at his defeat, combined with the .terrible strain his constitution must liavo endured during the four months of siege at Plevna, even more thun his wounds, may have contributed to the sad result. However this may be, in his death Turkey loses her greatest soldier. The rise of Osman Pacha in the Turkish ariny was rapid. He won renown in tho Crimean war at the commencement of his military carcor, and his services at Crete subsequently gained for him some of tho highest honors tho Turkish Empire be stows upon its soldiers. During tho pres ent war his name has become familiar throughout tho world and his for tunes have been watched with nioro interest than those of any other general on either side. There seem to have been some traits in his character vciy similar to those of Stonewall Jackson. He was enthusiastic in tho causo he supported, strongly imbued with religious fervor, ear nest, plain and direct in all his words nnd actions and greatly beloved by his soldiers, llis splendid defence ot Plevna will insure him lasting fame, notwithstand ing the ultimate and inevitable result. Ho dies in the prime of manhood, and cer tainly there is nothing in tho closing mis fortune of his brilliant career that can wither a single leaf of tho laurels ho has won as au able commander and a brave soldier. Our despatches from Plevna, published yesterday, presented a scene which must be wonderfully suggestive to tho historical painter, and that we have no doubt will one day blaze in spirited design and splen did color upon the walls of more than one princely home in Itussio. I his scene is that of the salute of Osman Pacha, first by tho Grand Duke Nicholas and then by Prince Charles, of Itoumania, wit"h Skobelcff and other younger heroes of the war in the group of admiring soldiers gathering about the carriage of the fallen, yet generously honored Ghazi. It was a scene full of tho pomp and glory of war, softened with tho pathetic sentiment of sympathy with tho soldier who had done his duty so gallantly, though withal vainly. War, with all its varioty and splendor, does not lurnish many scenes more touching or worthy to be re membered than was this one, nnd its in terest is enhanced by tho fact that almost at the instant tho curtain was drawn before it the eyes of the hero of Plevna closed upon the world forever. Jmtice In Colorado. An incident of an exhilarating and dra matic character was reported yesterday in a despatch from Colorado as having varied the | monotony of tho proceedings in a court of j nstico of that part of the world. Some of the citizens, it appears, went into Judge Dean's "so-called court" and called upon him to disperse himself and deliver up his books and seal. Firing began soon after, and tho Judge held his lines long enough to "lock up" the coveted books nnd seal and then retreated successfully on George town. This occurrence indicates, it will bo seen, the deep devotion of tho people of that neighborhood to law and order. The ground of their objection to Judge Dean is seen in their designation of the place where j he deals in justice as "a so-called court and their determination to have justice j supplied to tho people without adultora tion and at the lowest prico naturally ex cites their hostility to any judge whose record is cloudy. In fact, it seems to bo the old dispute between two sections of society us to which are the rogues and which arc the judges, and on each side they are deter mined to bo judges if they can and try tho others rather than have tho others be judges and try them. Wo hope there will be fair play and that the beat shots may win. A New Steamship Line to Hruzi). All ore aware of the present decadence of our mercantile marine and unxious to givo encouragement to any proposition that may assist its revival, liut we question whether tho enterprise announced in our heading is one that will have a tendency in that direc tion, for similar lines to Brazil have been repeatedly triod, and, though supported by subsidies and tho good wishos aiul patron ago of tho leading merchants in tho Bra zilian trade, proved disastrous failures. Thus Messrs. Garrison & Allen's line, bnekod by subsidies and large cupital, had to withdraw with very heavy loss. T o them succeeded Messrs. Tucker, then a line from Baltimore was est ah lushed, und finally Messrs. Lam fort A Holt, large Liverpool steamship owners, combined with their line from that port a round trip, touching at New York; und this, as well as the forego ing, has been given tip as unprofitable. We consider tho cause of failure very sim ple?there tiro no exports from the United States for remunerative steamship freight, nor any large number of passengers. Our exports arc principally plain cotton goods, flour, petroleum, rosin, hard and wood ware, some of which, as petroleum, cannot be legally shipped on steam vessels, and tho others being bulky and imperishablo do not require rapid transit, but rather cheap freight. The steamers that sail lrom Europe to Brazil, on the contrary, oarry many lirBt class and steerage passengers, und whut is called fine freight, such as woollen goods, flno muslins, fancy articles of all kinds, ribbons, gloves. silks, laccs, buou terie, wines Ac., frequently packed in small compass, which pay high freight at so much by cubic foot. One advantage to the public would seem to be the transmission of mail matter; but as these steamers touch on their way to Rio at Para, Pernambuco and Bahia, very littlo and sometimes no time is gained in their arrival in comparison with letters sent via steamers for Europo. We hear that our government has refused ^o grant a subsidy on those grounds to the proposed line, and we presume that before coming to u decision that Beems adverse to the development of our foreign trade they have maturely weighed the matter. With the Brazilian government it is a more vital aflair, as they are naturally desirous to increase the intercommunication with their provincial seaports, and to this end have promised the enterprise a subsidy. Wo havo heard the amount differently stated, but think that it ought to be large enough to guarantee against loss, although such generosity, oven for very material services, is rarely heard ol Why should not the eminent shipbuilder, the prominent promoter of this undertak ing, try instead to givo us a line of magnifi cent vessels to Europe to compete with our foreign rivals, who now monopolize all that large carrying trade ? This stato of things is not creditable to us as a groat com mercial nation, and if he would inaugurate this enterprise it would be hailed with satisfaction by all who wish again to see oar flag in its onco prominent position on the ocean. Xurltey Wantt Peace. In tho latest Turkish circular note it is said "the Porte is desirous to stop the further effusion of blood, and, therefore, appeals to the feelings of justice which must animate the great Powers, hoping that they will re ceive these overtures favorably." By tho recital it appears that "these overtures' are for peaco through the mediation ol any Power that may caro to undertake media tion. Turkey's appeal for mediation to the Powers that signed the Treaty of Paris and its London amendment seems to be made in forgetfulncss cf tho fact that in tho beginning of the present year tho Porto relieved all tho Powers of uuy responsibility for its fate and repudiated their interest in its welfare. All thoso Powers agreed on tho recommenda tions of tho Constantinople conference; and tho Porto having somewhat contemptu ously rejected those recommendations and determined to venture tho chances of war, the Powers will scarcely deem that proper consideration for their own dignity will justify any action on their part at this tirno merely becauso tho fate of war is against tho Power that dared the venture. United, peaceable action of several Powers, such as was taken at Con stantinople, has no logical value save as a measure to prevent war. If it fails in that respect it has no further function to per form. II war is defied, despite all advice to the contrary, those who are dofeuted cannot go to their former advisers to demand pro tection from tho consequences of war. Therefore the appeal will have no effect. Turkey put her fate on the hazard of battle and cannot now withdraw the stakes on any diplomatic pretence. Her appeal for peace must be made to Russia alone, and she must accept Russia's terms. Otherwise the war will assuredly continue.
