World. RUSSIA'S FUTURE. She Must Stand Her Ground and Fight. AFGHANISTAN WARNED. Establishment of a Baptist Church in Rome. THE VATICAN AND EUROPE. [by cable to the herald.] London, Not. 4,1878. The St. Petersburg Goto* says all Russians wish pence, but the present aspect of affairs is very alarm ?g. The Goto* particularly points to the fact that the chief field cash box has been returned from Odessa to Adrlanople, and asks :-"Why, if the rumors of the army readvancing are untrue, are they not contradicted? An advance on Constantinople would bo a hostile chal lenge on the part of Bussia." A telegram from St. Petersburg says it is reported on good authority that the Grand Duke Michael will shortly succeed Count Kotzobue in the Governor Generalship of Warsaw; that General Milutine, now Minister of War, is going to the Caucasus, and that General Nepokoitschitsky or General Katiffmann will probably be made Minis ter of War. The Simla Pioneer of Saturday announces on authority that England's ultimatum requires that the Ameer's reply shall reach Peshawur by November 20, otherwise the English forces will immediately in vade Afghanistan. A special despatch to the Time* from Darjecling says it is stated that sixty per cent of the Ameer's troops are stricken with fever. THE VATICAN. A telegram from Borne says the negotiations be tween the Vatican and Germany are progressing slowly. Both sides are anxious to arrive at a prompt settlement concerning the dioceses of Alsace and Lo raine, which are still administered as when tbey be longed to France. The Vatican will take advantage of the recent defeat of the radicals in Switzerland to re establish relations with that country. The exiled Swiss bishops have already been notified to return. CABLEGRAMS. American Baptists opened a new chnrch In Borne yesterday, near the Valle Theatre. All the evangelical ministers, the meml>er8 of the Young Men's Christian Association and the Bev. Mr. Taylor, at the head of the Baptist mission, took part In the services. A despatch to the Pott from Berlin says it appears that Bussia has abandoned the project of raising a fresh loan for the present. The Pott'* Berlin despatch says the German govern ment intends to propose an Import duty on grain. The London (Mnerver, in a semi-official paragraph, ?ays It understands the statement that the British government have appliod to other Powers for assist ance in enforcing the treaty of Berlin Is unfounded. The report of the sale of the Portuguese possessions On Delagoa Bay is denied from Lisbon. The public prosecutor of Madrid has been ordered to present an indictment against Moncasl within twenty-four hours. The Oldham cotton operatives held a meeting on Saturday and nnanimonsly resolved to resist the pro posed reduction of ten per cent in their wages. Twenty thousand hands and 8,000,000 spin dim will be affected by this action. A despatch from Paris to the DaOg Telegraph says:? "In consequence of fears of a democratic Insurrec tion in Seville the troops there have been placed under special restrictions." MEXICO. ZAMAOONAi ON THE RELATIONS OF THE TWO REPUBLICS. Washington, Nov. 8,1878. The intelligence received by Mr. Zamacona, the Mexican Minister, is confirmatory of the telegraphic accounts that peace prevails throughout Mexico. TROOPS ON THE RIO GRANDE. He says that thero are now about ten thonsand troops In the several Mexican States on the Rio Grande border, sent thither by tho federal govern ment to secure peace and tranquility in that part of the country as well as operate against the Lipan and other Indians, who, crossing the river, commit depre dations on tho Texan border and then return to Mexico. Mr. Zamacona reiterates what American army officers have already said?viz., that the Mexican gov ernment is acting in good faith in Its efforts to main tain the Integrity of the border. As an instance of ?ncli honesty he recalls the fact that not long ago, when cattle, ibmlc* and other American property were taken from the Lipans, the Mexican authorities sent word, through our Consul at Matamoros, to the own ers of such property, to come over and reclaim it. TRADE WITH MEXICO. Mr. Zamacona in pleased with the evidence that in creased interest in manifested, particularly In the West, in the increase of trade with Mexico. While he ssys our manufactures, including cotton are cheaper and hotter than tho English, Great Britain has the larger market, owing aololy to cheaper freights. It has been the objert of this gentleman during the years he has been in this country to produce more extended and closer commercial relations between the two Republics. HINDRANCE TO A CONVENTION. Although Mexico is still disponed to enter Into a convention with the United States for the Joint mili tary protection of the Bio Grande border she hesitates to do so while the F.xccntive order to our troops giv ing authority to pursue raiders into Mexico with a view to their punishment and the restoration of ?toien property remains in force. This order alone Stands in the way of a joint military co-operation.

FLIGHT OF MURDERERS. [BY TELEGRAPH TO THE HERALD. ] Nashville, Tenn., Nov. 3, 1878. It is conjectured here that- tho RogersHa-ywood party, the murderers of Edward Jackson, will proba bly give Tennessee the goby en mute West, for fear of a requisition for them from the Governor of this State, for which, however, no application has yet been made. The general impression of railroad men. who are keunly on tho lookout for the fleeing quartet, is that they will pans along the southern bonier of Tennessee to avoid tho service of a requisition, and that, as many persons of their acquaintance live in the western wilds of Texas, they will be likely to strike a bee line In that direction. ROBBERS ARRESTED. [BY TELEGRAPH TO THE HERALD. ] Nashville, Tenn., Nov. 3, 1878.

Mackey, of that city, has been receiving bodies of recently buried people, graves having been robbed at Beacon, Iowa, and the bodies barrelled and shipped. Two barrels were consigned to Mackey on Thursday, but the railroad agent, being suspicious, opened ono and found tho body of John Hynes, who had been recently burled near Beacon Mackey was arrested, bnt declares that he is innocent. His assertion is discredited, as under his direction the first barrel was taken to the Medical College at Keo kuk, where it still remains. The college authorities disclaim any knowledge of the source from which the barrel came. STAGE ROBBERS LYNCHED. Laiumie City, Wy. T., Nov. 3,1878.

Bishop Becker, of the Catholic Church, delivered an address thin afternoon in the pro-cathe dral, in reply to charges against the Catholic Church by Right Rev. Bishop Lee, Episcopal Bishop of this State, who has just returned from the Ban-Anglican Synod in England. The controversy is the cause of much excitement and comment.

Hunter's Point. Ho is believed by the medi cal stall at Bellovuo to be insane. LITERATURE. THE FRENCH REVOLUTIONARY EPOCH. D. Appluton A Co. have just Issued in two rolumee "The French Revolutionary Epoch." by Henri Van Laun, the able translator of Talne. Mr. Van Lauu's work is a history of France from the l>egii ning of the flnt French Revolution to the end of the Hecond Empire. It ia chiefly baaed upon the fourth, fifth and sixth volume* of the "Hiatoire dea Francois," by MM. Lavallee and Lock, though the in troductory chapter and the second part of the first chapter are mainly summarised from M. Taine'a "Ancien Regime." To Carlyle, de Goncourt. Michelet, Quinet and other authors who have treated of this period Mr. Van Laun acknowledges his indebt edness. The introductory chupter glances at the condition of France just before the Revo lution of 1788 and summarizes the causes which led to that outbreak, the burdens of taxation and the exactions of tho nobility being the chief rea sons assigned. In 1789, says Van Laun, all authority, wealth and privileges in France were in the hands of throe classes of persons?the clergy, the nobles and the King?to the utter 'spoliation of twenty flvo millions of men who tamely submitted and had done so for more than a hundred and fifty years, because the ancestors of the three classes had earned these distinctions as a reward for services formerly rendered to the people. Ho gives the priests the name of being true rulers, who, by patience and persuasion, provided tho sole check to the sword and battle axe. In that portion of this chapter dealing with the decadence of the nobility the writer asserts as a fact that the exactions which the rural lord demanded were the consequence of his own unfortu nate circumstances rather than the outgrowth of vol untary oppression. He,was often as poor as the peasant, without the peasant's privilege of working for his living. Ho isolated himself in his ruined castle and gave way to drink and the lowest forms of dissipation. The only thing for him to do was to go to court and try to obtain an appointment. To do this he must have money, and the only way to raise money was by taxing bis peasants. The hatred bred by this state of affairs may be sufficiently imagined without being described. It was worse still where the lord was an absentee. The fashionable world of the eighteenth century did not love the country. All these things were pro vocative of a ill feelipg on the part of tho peasantry, and that revolution was the resnlt is not to be wondered at. Tho literary powers did a great work during this century. They all contributed to the doctrine of humanity, to the casting off the trammels of artifice and to tho estab lishing of moral principles of equality in man. And who are the leading minds of those times ? All descended from the middlo classes. Vol taire, the son of a notary; Diderot, of a cut ler; Rousseau, of a watchmaker; d'Alembert, a foundling: Chamfort did not know his father, Beau xnarchats, also the son of a watchmaker, and so on? all plebeians. Book the second deals with the Re public, the Convention, the Victory of the Mountain, the reaction, all concisely and graphically described. In book three we come to the Directory and the government of Napoleon. The coming man is not hard to discover. Wo find him in book four a military dictator and future em peror. "Bonaparte," says this writer, "was the mili tary incarnation of tlfc Revolution and of Jacobinism, though the cloak of Charlemagne covered his plebeian shoulders, and he wore a crown placod upon his head by the idolatry of a great nation. The second volume of this very excellent history treats of the Empire, the Restoration, the reign of Louis Philippe, the Second Republic and the Second Empire. Mr. Van Laun writes as dispassionately as possible, and gives us an excellent history of the period his book covers. His pages bristle with facts and he avoids all superfluities, so that tho reader in search of history pure and simple will find it here. THROUGH HlBlfE LARDS. There are few men better fitted to write of a jour ney through Bible lands than the Iter. Dr. Philip Schaff. Dr. Schaff is professor of Biblical learning in the Union Theological Seminary of New York and a writer of no little power and eru dition, as was proved by his work on the "Creeds of Christendom." The present volume grow out of a series of familiar letters which Dr. Schaff wrote from the banks of tho Nile, and from the hut in the Wilderness and in Pales tine. What the letters may have lost in freshness during the pro<?ss of reconstruction they have gained in solidity and instruetiveness. Without entering into learned discussions the writer has given the results of the latest investigations as for as possible to verify them by personal observation. The mission schools and churches also came in for a share of his attention. His style is remarkably light and oasy for a theologian. It is an Inestimable advantage, he says, to see with one's own eyes the birthplaces of the authors of the sacred writings and their sur roundings, and to be able to speak from personal ob servation and experience. Manners and customs are so stationary in the East that you are transferred as by magic to the age of the apostles, the prophets and the patriarchs. A flood of light is thrown upon the mean ing of innumerable passages which appear strange at a distance, but quite natural on the spot. "Palestine," says Dr. Schaff, "is the framework on which the canon ical gospels are set," and he advises every theological student who cah afford it to complete his Biblical edu cation by a visit to the Holy Land. It will be of "more practical use to him in his pulpit labors than tho lectures of the professors in Oxford or Cambridge, in Berlin or Leipsig, valuable as these may be." This volume of travels is written in the somewhat condensed manner of a diary. There is very little of the guide book about it, personal ex periences forming its main features. Notwithstand ing the large number of travels through Palestine already published Dr. Schaff"s work cannot fail to command a large audience of interested readers. OTTt ENGLISH BIBLE. The Bey. Dr. Rtoughton's "Our English Bible, Its Translations and Translators" (Seribner ft Welford),is a book to command the attention of all students of theological subjects. It is the result of nearly forty years study. Weeks have bom spent by the author in the British Museum, and at Oxford, Cambridge and Lambeth in the inspection rot their manuscript treasures. He begins with tho earliest version down to tho labors of the English and American biblical revision companies. The English Bible he says is the most widely circulated of any in the world. The author quotes among other things a specimen of the famous "Halua Animi" or "Bonle bole" in the Vernon manuscript of the Bodleian, which, according to the best critics, belongs to the Thirteenth century. The following lines relate to tho Crucifixion:? Our lsdl and hire snstnr stolen under the roode. And Seint John, and Mario Magdaleyn with wnl sort in o ode Ur ladi blheold hire sweete son ibrouht In grot pyne, For monnes gnltes nonthen her and nothing for inyne. Marie weop wel sore ami bitter teres loot. The teres fullen uppou the ston doun at hire feet. DANCING MADE KART. Here ia a book that no Bunberry Kobb should be without. Of course you remember Bunberry, the squire in Ilosedair, who took his book of dancing instructions with htm Into the ballroom and not only refreshed bis memory dnring the pauses in the mnsie, bnt even peeped between its pages when going fnrionsly down the middle. "The Quadrille Call Book and Ball Room Prompter" (Dick ft Fitzgerald), is Intended, we learn from the preface, to be a "practi cal guide for modern darning, and lays no claim to lie a compendious book of reference for all the fnasll dances of bygone generations." The reader will find the chapter on ballroom eti quette full of Information that he will do well to re member. In the first place, s gentleman who accom panies a lady to a ball "will, after entering the build ing, immediately areompany her to the entrance of the ladies" dressing room, and, after seeing her safely within the apartment, leave her and proceed to the gentlemen's dressing room." The minuteness of these instructions will bo ob served. He must lead her to the ladies' dressing room "after entering the building," not before| then he must "leave her at tho entrance of the ladies' dressing room." Now this is well mentioned, for almost any gentleman would naturally enter the room where he saw ladies disrobing and repairing damages to their complet ions. back hair. Ac. The gentleman then enters his own dressing room. Let us see wh?t he *n mysterious place. He first div. sts hiui*? ? oven-oat and hat. and then gives his a r a i?? touch. adjust* his era vat, glov* and nr?H-4H-<l8 without further delay to seek lady and escort her to the ballroom. *> seems that the ladies are not the only on. "prink." When you conduct your partner to a sew you must "thank her for the pleasure she baa con ferred upon you, but do not remain too long ing with her." A lady must bow first to a she meets iu the ballroom "as neither her friends can know who or what he is. He mig be a wild man of the woods or a lightning rod agent for all she eould know. A lady who d.-clines dancing with a gentleman "should her refusal, no matter how frivolous. A tight sli? per or dizziness come in very good stead. I r grille or other dance, while waUin? for the music or while unengaged, "a lady an gentlemen should avoid long conversations -they are apt to interfere with the progress of th. dance, while on the other hand, a gentleman ^ouldnot stand llks au automaton, as though ho we SS2SU b?.?? ??>"? by those -airy nothings' which amuae for the mo ment and are in harmony with the occasion.

The Long Island Historical Society ha- just hon ored itself and conferred a benefit upon ?tudento of American history by publishing a full and largely original narrative of the important revolutionary campaign of 1? In the ucighborhoodof New York. | Although many page- of Bancroft. Hildreth and Losslng are devoted to thte notable period of the war for independence, the students who have endeavored to follow through them the military movement- of that year have found so much that was ?vague and contradictory and have lacked so much that wan necessary to a clear comprehension of the campaign that they have generally given up the task Tn despair. It has remained for a young man un known to fame, but pos-e-sing the qualifications of student and soldier to discover the weaknesses of the usual narrative, substitute facte for theories and rewrite the entire history of the campaign in a manner which makes all other histories nearly worthless. The author. Mr. Henry P. Johnston finding early in the course of his own personri researches that additional date were Jo an intelligent undrstanding of the milite y operations of 1776, began to cast about in Bcar^V?^ A thorough ransacking of the Congressional Library and other prominent collections having pro duce the desired information Mr. Johnston began the apparently hopeless task of finding the necessary ma t, rial in private hands. The story of the search is too long to bo narrated here, but the result of two years of persistent work among the descendants of revolutionary "^iers. from ocean to ocow and from the lakes to the Gulf, was the accumulation of more than sixty ??^entio documents the existence of which unsuspected, and these papers, published in fuU ia the volume before us. justified in a radical reconstruction of the history of the campaign. The correctne- ofthe narrative is established by these papers, ^nghthe fact that the book boars tho imprint of a society among whoso members are many of the closest stu dent* of revolutionary history would of ltoettbete most readers a sufficient guarantee, aside ?"??*** historical interest. The old document, alluded to are of themselves richly worthy of the attention of the antiquarian and the lover of the quaint and curious. Besides these the volume is enriched by a large map of New York and vicinity in 1776. the designer being a well known engineer officer of the regular army, which map Is full of interesting revelations and suggestions to the modern New Yorker. There is also a map, leaving nothing to be desired, of the Battle of Long Island. Portraits of revolutionary heroes herotofore unknown except through verbal description add to the attract iveness of the work. Tho highest credit isdne to the author for the thoroughness with which his tas to bl to.mpu.1..* ?d u> a. which has borne the expense of Issuing a book, the cost of which would heve ^rred ordinary publishers from undertaking it. and is to bo hoped that the reading public will express its appreciation in a manner so practical that tho society , and kindred ones will feel encouraged to investigate other misty pages of our national history.

L'Art is a periodical upon which one foels like ex* haunting all the adjectives in his vocabulary. It ap peals to the highest taste in matters of art, and each number contains treasures that every amateur as well as artist must appreciate. The present number, received through J. W. Bouton, is a gallery of great diversity, containing specimens of the old masters and the newest. The Paris Salon of 1878 is a fruitful source of illustration, and we are brought into close relation by the means of finished sketches, and sometimes again of tho barest out line, of the most striking pictures of the year. Neuville, who is just now the admiration of the younger artist, is well represented, and Honnet, also a new man, is to be studied in his Magdelene, a pic ture of great beauty and sentiment. Harah Bern hardt is seen at her cleverest in a sketch from a bronze bust of Enille do Uirardln, and Bartholdi is repre sented by his colossal lion. Bannat's portrait of Don Carlos, a spirited and artistic performance, is shown in a full page etching, in which the character of the original is well reproduced. Eugene Veron writes of the 8alon, and treats of landscape, marine pictures, portraits, scenes of contemporary life, animal painting, still life, &o. Louis Menard writes of sculpture, and A. do Baudot of architecture. Vlollet-le-Duc gives an elaborate account of the Exposition Building accompanied by explanatory drawings. Charles Tardteux writes of the French, Italian and Hpsnlsh schools. Tho collection of the Barons Rothschild is described by Rdmond Haint Raymond. Etnile Holdi writes of the art of the Eth nographic Museum and Persian art. Albert Dttrer is corefnlly considered by Eugene Veron and Victor Ceresole writes of the military paintings of 1878. Both of those articles are profusely and intelligently Illus trated. Gustavo Dorfi's "Vase do la Vigne" has been wonderfully reproduced by tho etching needle of Chanipollion. Not only are paintings discussed, but the concerts in the Trocadero are competently criti cised by Arthur Pongiu. L'Art has long held the po sition of first among art journals, and tho present number bears ont its proud reputation. I.ITKKARY CHIT-CHAT. The AtAfiurnm thinks that the Western poems In Joaquin Miller's new volume are the best, but does not think that the book will mid to his reputation. Mr. John Payne's translation of "Villon" is now ready. It is bound in vellum, with fac-eimllos of tho ancient title page and some of the text. Tho volume is enriched by a ballad, written expressly for it by Theodore de llauv die. "Poo snd His English 8choo'master" is the subject of a communication in the last number of the AfAe tvrwis. The writer was also a pupil of Dr. Drunsby'a school at Btnke Newlngton. but not at ths time Foe was there. Ha doss not believe that Poo or aav other pupil ever met with harsh treatment at the hands of Dr. ISransby. The old Doctor used to say that the youug poet was "intelligent, wayward and wilful. Still I lilted the boy; poor fellow, his parents spoilt him." Bayard Taylor's "Life of Ooetho" Is fast approach ing completion. It was delayed by Mr. Taylor'a rcceut illness, which prevented his holding a pen for three months. A letter to a friend in New York conveys the assurance that he has quite recov ered. The new volume will contain important ma tt-rial hitherto unknown to English readers, much of which has been gathered from oral testimony at Weimar. Alma Taderaa has made the frontispiece for Edward W. Oosae's volume of studies in tho political litera ture of Northern Europe. "Un" l-ltima ^nfessione" is the title of D. G. Ho#, setti's "Hand and Soul" translated into Italian. There are three vacancies in the French Institute. "Food and Its Preparation," a school oookery text book, by C. E. Guthrie Wright, U in Macmillati'a press. The German authors have formed a society for tha protection of their homo rights. A yoting enthusiast advertises in the Athetuntm to "know whether, among other disciples of this man (Thomas Carlyle), there are many, or any, who would devote some time of their life, and their actual life, if necessary, to extend and promote his teachings." The fourth part of George Grove's "Dictionary of Music and Musicians." published by Macmlllan tfCo., is just out. It covers the musical ground from Con cert to Ferrara. This is indeed a valuable work and is being done in a most thorough manner. "Grammar Land, or Grammar in Fun for the Chil dren of Schoolroom Shire," by M. L. Nesbitt (Henry Holt is Co.), is tho title of a little l>ook that teaches grammar in homoeopathic doses. The little ones will think they are a story, whilo all the time they ara being instructed in the art of speech. The Lite ran/ World, heretofore published as a monthly, has been changed to a fortnightly. This periodical is one of the few purely literary publica tions our country boasts, and it deserves the success it seems to have attained. The Harpers publish throe different editions of William Black's "McLeod of Dare," one in library form, one in the Library of Choice Fiction and one la the Franklin Square Library.

[From the London Times, Oct 24.] A private letter from Khartoum under data Sep tember 2, says"The steamer Isinalia arrived hero a few days since from Lodo, making the journey in ten days. Ibrahim Hal if a, the Syrian engineer, who put the Nyanxa ard Khedive together st Dufli, came down, and he tells me it took him Just three months and seventeen dmys to put the Khedive together, ready to steam up to the lako. The elephants are also in the very best condition, making them selves very useful indeed; they carry all ths heavy goods up to Dufli. Ibrahim tells mo that ons elephant carries six ardebs durra and six persons bo sides, with their provisions, arms, Ac. We have had a bud year, and the sufferings of the people have been terrible. For many months the anleb durra haa cost $10 and $12. I remember that we considered $2 50 or $3 an exorbitant price in former times. However, ths coming mwson promises to be s very good one. Wo had plenty of rain?almost too much?and the Nile rose to twenty-four dra's. which is tho best height it can reach.

Even in the Korosko desert, where for insny yoars no rain fell, the grass ia reported to be three feet high ab ready.
