The Daily Telegraph of this morning fully confirms the Herald's special advices and asserts that despatches have reached Lon don from Bucharest that Osman had poisoned himself, and it was believed he was actuated by the Mahommedan horror of amputation, which the surgeons informed him was necessary.

Osman Pacha was born about 1830, In Tokat, uu Ar menian town In ibo Vilayet, and fifty-Qvo miles north northwest ol the city ol Slvos, on the ancient Is.s, now called tho Yeshll Irmak.

Osmun's entrance luto tho urmy took place in 1863, and coincided with tho begiunlug of the Crimean war. Uo bad scarcely donned nis uniform when, with some of bis schoolmates, ho was appointed on tbe stair and sent to Shumla.

From the first to tho last momeot ho was present in every movement of the campaign against the Insurgents. Peace being re ?lored in Crete he came back to Constant! nopfe, this time with the cfrauiets of colonel, won ultor two years of constant Ogbtlng. During bis stay at tbe capital Osmun Pacha was connected with various military unties and Intrusted with several missions Which obtained lor him a promotion to tho grade of brigadier general, and lastly an appointment ?u tho auff ot the Filth Army Corps as general of dl vl.iou. In that position, as In tho previous ones, osman Pacha's activity did not roinx, and his services became dally moro Important and valuable.

Uo was partially successful at first, but was eventually crushed and compelled to sin reuder. A Ave hours' tight at tbo bayouot's point! In this, tils lust light, Osmau Pacha was wounded in the fool, iiLd Iroui the vllects of this wonud ho has probably died. Be was comparatively a yuuug man?about lorty-soveu. HIS APPKAItANCK. Osman l'achn was neither tall nor short ol stature, with broad shoulders, straight muscular logs and altogether of an athletic build. His head was superb. His features were regular and bduokencd earnestness and quiet decision. Ills uniform consisted usually of a Jacket, with broad luctngs ol dark cloth, u long waistcoat of tho Louis XV. stylo and tight llttlng trouicrs, over which kneo hoots uro drawn. In dress, therefore, he presented u striking cuuirust lo tbo other l'urkish gcuorals, as there was nothing looso about his costume.

LlkK S TON'S WALL. JACKSON. Osman l'ucha was not a lunatic, but be was very pious. "I bavo never seen him perform his orlsoua In the orthodox lluhoinmcduu fashion, but I know that ho prays," says u correspondent. He spoke little, never entering into coDvorsatiou with any one. His officers watched tls movsmonts, received a brief order and executed It, or uuswered a short ques tion und retired again into tbe background. A lacituru mac. ho had an immense power ot work; was ulwuys occupied, and slept little. Energetic, with on iron will, sell-reliant, never asking lor advice, ho was nevertheless ex tremely modest, undervaluing both himself aud his achievements. He never wrote dospulches; his re ports to Constantinople, consisting ot a low words, in which the result of bis operations wore lucouloally reluicd. Tho details, accord lug to bis idea, belonged to tho past anil ho busied himself only with present circumstances. THK TITLE Of "onAZI." Thotitloof (jhu/.l, which was conferred on Osman Pacha, Is oucof great distinction, and Is rarely cou forrod ou u subject In Turkey. Indeed, it Is nearly three hundred years sluco uny individual wss se lected for such an honor. It was, on one or two occasions, conferred during the great wars of the Turks with Western Europe in tho sixiocnlh century. Tho last time It was conferred in modern d.iys upon tbo fortress of Hbumla, which is always designated In official docu ments as Ghuzl Sbumla. This tortress bus been bo slotted tweuty-seven times and lias never been taken. It may be again besieged during tho prcsout war, but is not likely to fall In one campaign; indeed, Itasgrad (now a fortified position) and ltustcbuk must both bo taken before SUunila can bo effectively bts.egcd. Ills LAST PUBLIC APPKAKA.NOK. A correspondent at l'levna telegraphs tbe fol lowing concerning Osmuu Pacha's reroptlon by tho Hussions:?"i'ho Grand Dnko Nicholas rode up to Osinan'o carriage, and for aomo seconds tbo two chlela gazed into each other's laccs without tbo at teruueo of a word. Then the Grsni Duke stretched oat Ins band, shook iho hand ol Osman l'acha heartily, and said:? "'I compliment you on your defence of Plevna. It is ono of tho most splendid military foate in his tory.' Osinaii smiled sadly, rose puinlully to his lect In splto of bis wound, and satd something which 1 could not hour, he then reseated himself. The Rus sian officers all criod 'Bravo,' 'Bravo,' repeatodly, and all saluted respectfully. Thero was not one among them who did not gaze on tho boro of Plevna with tbo great est admiration and sympathy. Prince Charles of Houraauin, who had arrivod, rodo op and repeated unwittingly almost everv word of tho Grand Duke and likewise shook hands with Osinau, who again rose and bowod, this lime in grim sllcnco. Osman l'ucha wore a loose blue cloak, with no ap parent mark on It to designate hi* rank, and a red fez He is a large, strongly built mun.

Sax Axtukio, Dec. 10, 1877. I'poo inquiry at aruiy hcadquartera your coiro iiroudeut ascertained ttiul it wan a (act tUul me baluio ol the recout orders from toe Secretary oi War was such as to prohibit Untied Males troops Irom cross ing the boundary hue lu pursuit ol parlies who have becu raiding in Texas. When that portion ol the President's Message bearing on this subject le read lu the light ol the luct that a cavaliy scout ol upward ol two hundred man, under Coloucl Young, has |ust returned irom a three weeks' scout lu Moxico, curing* which Mexicun Indians have been killed and wounded U In not straugo that considerable surprise should bo expressed at Hue sudden change of trout. It puzzlus iiud bewilders all who have ovcu supcrllciully studied the Mexican question WHAT PKOl'I.B THINK Ol' IT. Those best acquainted with the Mextcsu character predict that this conciliatory measure ol the Presi dent will utterly fail m accomplishing the purpose It wns designed to* They are ol the opiulou mat the Muxicuus ou the border will regard It us cumulative evidence of tlio truth ol their olt-repeulod usscrtiou that the L'utiod .States government dure not cxaspcr uto the Mexicans. The herder Mexicans boast ol the i u> in unity lroui punishment that was allordcd the 'Mexican jail breakers and murderers at Jilo Grande City, wnerc the Uuited Slates troops were deQed to arrest them. The condition ol Kl l'aso county, whero lor weeks this portion ol American territory was in undisturbed possession of an armed Mexicun mob, recruited tor ti.e most part irom the oppostto side ol the river, busdouo inuvh to promote thogrowth or the delusion that they liuvo but to stretch forth thoir bunds and that portion of Texas lying botwocu the Nueces and tho ltio lirande rivers will bo theirs again. Even at tins moment u Mexican soldier who commuted u dastardly murder at Eagle Pass Is lu a lair way to go unpuutshed. Eor these rousons those who dotlro war with Mexico nro by no means discouraged at the order lorbiddlng L ulled States troops to lollow raiders into Moxico, (or tho reason that tbo Mexicuns and Indians, being assured ol saicty Irom pursuit by tho only troops tlioy have ?ny reason to lour, will redouble Iboir activity lu tbo mealing line and then tbo Texas State troops will cross over utter them anu bring on tbo catastrophe.

They argue that this last conciliatory muasuro la the forerunner of the recognition ol the Diaz ad ministration; that by Ibis recognition Diaz will feel liimselt strong enough to curry hu policy ol punch ing or delivering up to the American civil authorities all ratucrs lu Texas. It will ue roioenibeiod that Diaz peremptorily ordered lienors! c,males to dulivor up the ltio Uruudo City raiders, although, strictly speak tug, the United Stales bad no right under tho extra dition treaty to demand their Unlivery. It was a line exhibit.on of moral courage iu the laic ol the ruling prejudice of the Mexican peop.e. Ou the whole, however, the couducl of the adminis tration excites much disgust. A prominent i ll Ueu, who i.us suffered greuily Irom cattle raids, recun>ly re marked'?"A nice stute ol things, irul> I Tue I'nited .Stales troops are ordered to croos ovor al tei raiders as long us it is known the Mexicans have uo suUlcieiit lurec to defend themselves, but us soon us Dms shows bis teeth, orders troops to the ltio lirunde and directs Ins officers to resist lorcc bv lorce, then tlio great American Itepuhlic, like u whipped cur, lucks Us tall between lis bind legs, unit tho order to lollow highway robbers and thieves to ihelr dons is revoked."
