From All Parts of the World. SURRENDER OF YAK003 KHAN Reports of an Attempt Upon Emperor Francis Joseph's Life. THE MANIA OF ASSASSINATION. Distress Spreading in the Midland Counties of England. ANOTHER OCEAN CABLE PROBABLE * [by cable to the hebald.] Loxdov, Dec. 28, 1878. A despatch from Lahore, published in the second edition of the Times, says:? ?'Yakoob Khan, son of the Ameer of Afghanistan, has just come into Jelalabad. This circumstance iB regarded here as equivalent to submission to the British." The correspondent of the Daily News at Vienna states that a telegram from Tiflis ?ays the Ameer of Afghanistan has arrived at Tashkend. MORE or THE KINO KILLERS. The Vienna TagMatt has received intelligence from the palace of Ooedoelloe, In Hungary, where the Emperor and Empress of Austria and the Crown Prince are spending the Christinas holidays, thotsru mors have been current for some days post in Pcsth of attempts on the life of the Emperor. The only fact that has transpired, however, is the arrival there of a superior official of the polioo with reinforcements for the gendarmerie guarding the castle, for tho pur pose of establishing a closer watch around the palace. It is alleged that efforts have been made to discover tho whereabouts of a Saxon painter, against whom information has been received by the police, and who has been loitering in the neighborhood but has disappeared. A dyer has been arrested at Alteuburg, Saxony, charged with threatening to assassinate tho Emperor of Austria. He pleaded drunkenness. 1MPKRIAE ASSASSINATION MANIA. The Vienna l'resse last evening confirms the rumors mentioned in the Tagbtatt of attempts against the life of the Emperor, and says that two months ago the police were informed from abroad that per sons. who had been heard to make auspicious remarks had gone to Hungary. Information has been very recently received respecting two men, one of them s locksmith, who hod spoken of an attempt on the Emperor's life and who had been seen at Ooedoelloe. BRITISH WEATHER. The weather In the metropolis yesterday was dull. The thaw continues snd the snow snd ice have nearly disappeared in London. Nearly all over England the weather Is comparatively mild. The work of clearing away the obstructing ?now on the Scotch railways is making good progress, and at rnsny points the trsffio has been resumed. There are no indications yet of a thaw in Scotland. ' DISTRESS IN ElJoLAND. ?. Reports from Manchester, Sheffield and other places In the manufacturing districts show the distress to be still increased; bat the thaw, if it continues, will enable the masons and outdoor laborers to resume work, though even then a vast amount of destitution will remain. At the meeting of the coal owners at Sheffield yesterday, the work legmen's deputation, when asked if they had any proposition to make, simply suggested the withdrawal of the notice of reduction of wages. The masters refused to entertain this proposition. The coal owners' meeting was adjourned until January 9, when they will be Informed of the result of the meeting of tho Miners' Council, which is fixed to take place at Barnsley on January 0. The cotton operatives at Oldham are continually returning to work. District meetings will be held on Saturday to consider the situation. THE MINING INTERESTS. Today will probably decide tho question whether tho South and West Yorkshire and large portion of the Derbyshire mining dis tricts, giving employment to 00,000 or 100,000 men and hoys, should be laid up idle at the idose of the second week of .January, snd It is feared that a severe struggle is at hand. The miners in West Yorkshire have as yet rocoived no intimation of a redaction, but the leaders in that part of the coal field, knowing that the masters will act In ac cordance with the decision come to In South York shire, have entered into a compact with the secretaries of the latter district to oppose a reduction to tho uttermost, and if necessary lay every colliery In both districts idle. The feeling of the men is ' Strongly opposed to any reduction, and notwithstand ing the depressed state of trade the Minora' Council have passed a resolution urging the men to oppose the threatened reduction in every possible way. NEW FRANCO-AMERICAN CABLE. The TWe JfuropiVsnr says"The Paris and Nsw York Telegraph Company of M. Pouyer-Querticr has got three Psrislan financial institutions to guarantee ths capital nccesaary. American aud French capital ists arc also interested, tho latter, probably, rather from patriotic motives 1 ban with a view to profit. The amount of capital required is 64,000,ooof., of which 42,000,000f. will be raised by ths Issue of 84,000 shares." CONSULAR JURISDICTION IN CTl'RL'S. The Berlin Oruu Gaulle says;?"Gertuauy and Italy have made complaint at London relative to the refusal of the British commander at Cy prus, Sir (isrnst Wolssly, to rcoognize an official document Issued by Hignor Magni, tho Uvriuau-ltalisu Consul at Larnacs." The Rcmo Hyfarma states that after a long Interview between Signer DeprvtU. Provident of the Council, and Sir A. B. Paget, the British Ambassador, the difficulty in re gard to Consular Jurisdiction in Cyprus has been almost arraugiMl. kirks in Bona kono and cairo. A tremendous confiagration broke out in Hong Koug on Christinas Day and raged all day yestsrday. The destruction of property was very great. A destructive conflagration has occurred at the Abdln Palace, the winter residence of the Khedive, at Cairo. Half of the butldiug was destroyed. (ISEMAN TAUIFF. The Berlin /Yoviacud Cvrrrtpmdrnce (semi-official) reproduces Prlnco Bismarck's letter relating to tariff revision, and remarks that, should the system recommended therein secure a reve nue from some articles proportionately as considerable us that derived by England and America, there will be nothing to prevent a re duction of the number of articles taxed when taxa tion is found burdonsotue. Tho proposed tariff will also be advantageous in negotiating trestles of com merce, as (termany can obtain concessions in return for the relinquishment of duties. THE Timco-OBEC'IAN FRONTIKB. The Greek Coiutnander ln Chlef Hontr.o and fleere tary General of the Interior Ziuopouloa, have been appointed Commissioner* to negotiate relative to the Turco-Grecian frontier. THE SOUTH* AFRICAN WAR. A despatch l'rom Cape Town, dated December 10, says it is stated on good authority that Sir Bartle Frere's communication to the Zulu King demands the disbandment of the Zulu army, the cession of St. Lucia Bay and the reception of a British Resident. The message had not reached the King at the date of tho telegram. A war is considered imminent. CABLE NOTES. A despatch from Rome says:?"A special Conven tion, with the object of organizing a Catholic hier archy in Bosnia and Herzegovina, will shortly bo signed by the Vatican ami Austria. It 1* stated that twelve new Cardinals will soon bo appointed, three of whom will be foreigners." The Standard'* PhiUppopoIis despatch says arms sro being generally distributed throughout Eastern ltpuiuelia, to bo used in resisting the execution of the Treaty of Berlin. A despatch to the l'?*t from St. Petersburg states that a Chinese envoy has arrived there to adjust the differences between China and Russia. The Vienna Prette says that Count Corti, the Italian Euvoy, has been authorized to assure the Porte and Austria that Italy has uo designs upon Albania. A special despatch to the Daily Nevis from Alexan dria, Egypt, says a decree has been published con voking the Chamber of Deputies. Tho Bishop Mermillod, expelled from Switzerland, is dangerously ill at Lyons with inflammation of the throat. The Tim**' correspondent at Vienna says:?"It is stated that the students' demonstrations in Russia have caused an unpleasantness between the Czare witch, who is suspected of countenancing them, and the Czar." MEXICO REVOLT OF THE CLERICAL PARTY?A RATTLE AT GUADALAJARA?EIGHTY REBELS HANGED. San Francisco, Cal., Dec. 27,1878. A passenger by the steamer Granada, just arrived from Panama and way ports, states that as the Granada was leaving Mazatlan, bound north, news was received of a severe battle between the f6rces of the clerical eliief, Lerma, and the national troops, under General Escudero, military commander at Guadalajara. Lerma, with his Indians, had captured the town of Tcpic, in the natne of the clerical party, and held high carnival there for a few days. Ha also held the road leading from Tepic to the seaport of San Bias. Upon the ad vance of Escudero Lerma marched out to meet him, but waa totally defeated and most of his adherents captured, of whom eighty were immediately hanged. Tho balance of those captured, claiming to have been forced into the rebel service, were allowed to go to their homes. ON THE RIO GRANDE.

They Are Landed at Kings ton, Jamaica. PASSENGERS AND CREW. Scenes at the New York Office of the Company. [From the Evening Telegram of yesterday.] [(SPECIAL CABLE DESPATCH TO THE TKLEGBAM.] Loxdok, Dec. 27, 1878. Another disaster at sea and another sacrifice of human life is announced to* day ; but how it occurred, or the exact causes ' which led to the catastrophe are as yet unexplained. Neither is it positively known how many lives have this time been sacrificed. The steamship Emily B. Souder, Captain Kuehl, which leit New York on the 8th of December, bound for Porto Plata, Samana and St. Domingo City, foundered at sea alter being only two days out from port. This news reached London to-day, telegraphed from Kingston, Jamaica, by Lloyds' agent at that place, who states that two of the crew of the ill-fated vessel? the only survivors of the wreck?had just been landed at Kingston. What beeame of the passengers, the officers and the re mainder of the crew is not known. The two wrecked sailors, who were picked up by a passing vessel, state that they believe all others who were on board the steamer have been drowned. THE NEWS IN THE CUT. Tim news of the lotm of the Kiaily B. Souder was first communicated to the agent*, Messrs. Clyde k Co., of No. 8 Bowling Green, by the reporters, who hurried Ipore to obtain information concerning the crew and paasongurs. Having, no information concerning the loss of tho vessel, and thinking the report might be a canard, Mr. Clyde, very prop erly, refused to say anything concerning the vessel or her crew and passengers. He further Justified his action by inquiry at tho oifice of the Associated Press, where the messenger was in formed thst uo news concerning the steamer in ques tion had been sent out through their "flimsy." Shortly after noon, however, Mr. Clyde was in're ceipt pf a cablegram from Kingston, Jamaica, as fol lows:? . . W. B. Clyde A Co.. New York Two m-amon. stoauuT K. B. Soulier, brought here by schooner Abbott Devureeux, report bur fouuiloruil nt mis De cember Hi. H. V. CAI.TI11KST. Agent Board of Underwriters, Kingston. This cablegram satisfied Mr. Clyde of the truth oj the report, and he at onoe ordered his clerks to give the newspaper men all the information concerning the viwsel in tho possession of tho officer. Mean while he sought further particulars concerning the loss of the vessel from Mr. J. K. Roberts, American Consul at Kingston, to whpm he forwarded the fol lowing despatch :? J. K. Roseau, Amariaaa Carnal. Klacitom. Jamaica:? Cable at once full particular* of the loua of steamer B. B. Hornier?name* of tavod. bow aaved. preapecta of aaaaeu ,?r. and rest of crew. W. P. FTyDK ?C( 7 At eleven o'clock last night no answer had been re ceived to this request. The offices of the company were kept open until that hour and instructions left with the clerk in charge that in esse any word was received to immediately telegraph the despatch, ver batim, to those who had called during the afternoon in search of news, and had left their addresses for that purpose. TIU FaHSEXOBRR. The Bonder carried only nine passengers, or about one-third the number ahe could accommodate, and aa the vessel wss equipped with abundant life saving apparatus, tho agents entertain strong hopes for the safety of thoae not yet heard from. From calculations baaed on tho date on which the vessel is reported to have foondcrod, and modified by the reports of the wind's force and direction from December H (the time the Souder left this .port) until December 10, it is ascertained that at tho last men tioned date she would he a little south of Cape Hatters*, but far to tho eastward of that point, aa her course to Turk's Island was due south from New York. Admitting this calculation to be true, it la qnite reasonable to infer that a large number of the voyagers by tho ill-fated steamer reached Bermuda, which is noarer the scene of the disaster by some hundreds of miles than Jamaica, where tho two rescued seaman were landed.

L CRUELTY AT SEA. SERIOUS CHARGES AGAINST THE CAPTAIN OF THE NEW YORK SCHOONER ANITA?HIS TWO FIRST OFFICERS ANXIOUS TO I.EAVK THE YKS SEL. [BY TELEORAPH to the herald.] NEwroBT, R. I., Doc. 27, 1H78. The Mercury of to-morrow will publish a horrible story of cruelty on shipboard, of which the following is tho substauce:? Tho first mate of the schooner Anita, of New York, from Dolivia, Captain McCt-ady, called at the Custom House yesterday and asked the Collector's interfer ence in obtaining his release from the vessel ou ac count of ill-health. The mate stated that the Anita was returning from a three months' voy age to Dolivia. While tho vessel was loading tho mate was badly hurt by a large weight falling on bis back. -Ho was so badly injured that ho was uuablo to do anything during the return voyage, and cannot now raise his hands above his head. Ho also desired the release of the second mate, who, it appears, was attacked with inflammatory rheumatism when ten days out from New York, and has been prevented from doing any work since that time. UNDUE ANXIETY TO BE BELIEVED. When the Anita arrived in this poTt the two men asked Captain McCrady lor a release, but he refused to grant it, although both men were wholly unfit for work of any kind. The .Collector listened to the atony and promised his assistance. .When Captain McCrady put in an appearance, after the usual busi ness had been transacted the Collector asked him why he declined tg, release the men. The cap tain replied, ' ia a rough manner, that he didn't choose to do so; that he wanted the men to go on to Now York with him, and that he would not do it uulos compelled. After soiuo conversation the Collector informed Captain McCrady that unless ho gave the desired release there would In all proba bility be entered a complaint against him for cruelty. This brongbt tho captain to terms, and he reluc tantly paid the men their wages aud signed the neces sary papers. The two mates lost no time In leaving the vessel, which had become utterly loathsome to them. ALLEGED HABITUAL CRUELTY. The discharged men allege that the captain never had a crew which did -not escape from his tyranny and cruelty by deserting before the voyage was over. Ou tho present voyage, every man of his crew ex cept the two mates deserted from the Anita on Its arrival in Dolivia, and he was forced to ship a crow of negroes. On the return voyage tho poor blacks had not an easy life. Tho captain, it is alleged, knocked down one poor fellow, named Jo seph Francis, and so injured him * that he never recovered. Off Point Judith, when the man was dying the captain, It is asserted, had 1dm sewed up in a blanket and ordered him to bo thrown overboard, but no onu would obey the com maud. Soon after Francis died aud his body was thrown overboard, although the vessel was only a few miles from this port. Another negro was seriously sick and confined to his berth when tho Anita came in. All the time the inspector wss on board while tho vessel lay here there was no fire except in tho cook's galley, and the poor negro lay in his berth cold and uncared for. He was given no medicine and hail uo nursing or assistance. Mr. Avery informed the Collector that he was afraid to make the trip to New York with the captain. He dare not risk his life in McCrady's hands. It is thought a little singular;bcni that tho Collector did not nave the captain arrcstod. He believes every word of the horriulo story. He claims that he had no power to arrest him. The vesssel sailed to-day. The municipal authorities here were not apprised of tho affair until to-night. The mates left for New York last night. WANTS TO BE HANGED. [BY TELEGRAPH TO TUB UK11ALI).] Kahxom, Pa., Dec. 27,1H78. The Sheriff of Northampton county to-day received throe letter* from Allen C. I.aros, the murderer, in which he states that he wants to die; that he is tired ?of life, and desire* the Sheriff to hang him and thereby end his trouble*. He declares that he i* not insane, but that ho cannot drivo from his mind the terrible crime he ha* committed, aud want* the Sheriff to end his Morrow* by executing him according to the Hcntonce of the Oourt. The opinion in Kaston about his itelng insane i* about equally divided. Homo think that he has written the letters in order to mnro fatly prove the plea of insanity, as he was always a sharp and shrewd young man. with an excellent education, aud was an apt Mtudcnt at law.

TWENTY ILLICIT DISTILLERIES DESTROYED AND SIXTY PRISONERS CAPTrRED. [BY TELEGRAPH TO THE HERALD.] Nashville, Tenn., Dec. 27, 1878. Special Deputy Collector Davis and his men ar rived here to-day from the upper Cumberland region, the continued snow storms having prevented further raiding of illicit distilleries iu Clay, Fentress and Overton counties, Tenn.. and Wayne county, Ky. Tho mountain paths were ro slippery that no horse could keep his footing. Every man on the raid was frequently unhorsed and some of them se verely bruised. On tho summits of the mountains the winds blew the snow iu such a manner as to almost blind men and horses, and the fording of the Ohio ltiver through tho ice drifts was extremely hazardous. Tho raid was made over a fearfully rug ged, mountainous country, for 400 miles. Twenty illicit distilleries woro destroyed and sixty prison ers captured. RESISTANCE OVERAWED. In Wayne county, Ky.. sixty-five moonshiners con centrated to clean out the Kentucky squad, but, fiud ing a larger force than they expected, thoy concluded not to make the attack. They had tramped the snow down at the Great Sand Cliffs with tho anticipation of having a tough time with the raiders. CAl-rritK OF A NOTED OUTLAW. Davis brought hero tho notorious moonshiner, Harvey Beatty, son of tho once famous "Ticker Dave," who swore that if Tennessee seceded Fent ress county should not, and held tin mountain fast nesses against all foes during the late war. County officers have never had the temerity to arrest Harvey Beatty, though lie has been thrico indicted. Davis found him behind a bed with a carbine and pistol drawn. Davis told him to drop his weapons and throw up his hands or he would kill him instanter, and he yielded. FAILURES IN THE WEST. Cincinnati, Dec. 27,1878.

Adriancc Bush, of the New York Bar Association Committee, against Frederick W. Loew. Register of the County of New York. The charges are an embodiment of those al ready published in New York. The Governor will notify Mr. Loew of the time for a hearing. INTERVIEW WITH THE REGISTER. A Hkrald reporter called to see Mr. Loew after the receipt of the Albany despatch announcing the pres entation of the charges to the Governor by the com mittee of the Bar Association. "The charges? What charges?" asked the Register, in surprise, when the reporter questioned him in regard to the policy ho would pursue in meeting them. Hoeing that he had not yet heard of the action of Messrs. Knox snd Bush, the reporter explained. "Well, this Ik news to me," Mr. Loew answered. "Of course I shall guske my defence, snd I fool sure thst I can successfully meet every charge which may l>? made against me. I have tried to exact only legal fees. When the committee came to me I opened my books to them and afforded them every facility. Hince then 1 have had a schedule of charges prepared ny the lawyers who do the most business in my office, and I rigidly adhere to it." "What do you think of being singled out for the first onset of the committee?" the reporter inquired. "I scarcely know what to think," the Register rc 8lied. "It is a little singular, to say the least of it. towevcr, I shall fight hack, and in the issue before the Governor 1 have nothing to fear. I am. as the Hkrald knows, averse to being Interviewed, and it Is enough for me to say, as I have said already, that I will defend myself against this attack." THOSE SPANISH DOLLARS. 8TATEN ISLAND EXCITED OVER WHAT WAS THOUGHT TO BE A BIG BONANZA. The reported finding of an urn filled with ancient coins created considerable excitement in Rossvillo* j and Tottenviila yesterday, but the excitement was found to have no actual basis when the prcKgmed owner of the treasure was visited yesterday by ex-Hupervisor Ellis, of Richmond county, and a reporter of the Hkrald. Mr. Christian Meister. who resides on a most forlorn corner of staten Island, on Lake's Island, a place which it was difficult to find even for such an expert gnide as Uncle Ike, who is known al over the western part of Richmond connty, laughed most heartily when asked about the treasure reported to have been found by him. He stated that he had found a silver cola in an adjoining lot and that his son. who is a good hand at cracking jokes, had told his fellow-laborers in the grist mill that his father had found a whole pot of gold, "I wish it were true," said Mr. Meister, "but unfortunately it Is not so." He hsd not even hoard of the excitement it hail created iu the various neighboring towns, and enjoyed tho news when informed that even grave officials of Richmoud county had added their testimony . in regard to the value of the treasure fouud on Lake's Island. Hheriff llrowu, of Richmond county, who had not seen Mntetar personally, stated tbat oaa of his dep uties hail actually seen soiue of the coin found, and on the Htaten Inland boats yesterday there were a number of people quite satisfied that au immense treasure had been recovered. * An incident showing the extraordinary credulity of some people occurred while the reporter was on his way to lake's Farm. The driver of the carriage suddenly exclaimed, while passing along a lonely road about six o'clock, "There, gold hunters are at it now!" He stared and pointed to a house which he said was lit from top to bottom,' but just as the carriage passed by not a light was to be seem "This huunc has not been occupied for five years," said Uncle Ike, "and they must be at it." It was the house of Marshal Swam, who fell dead there some five years ago, and It is regarded with, awe by alt dwellers of the western shore. There were, however, no more gold diggers tin re than there were on Lake's Island proper. LINCOLN POST, NO. 13, G. A. R. At a meeting of Lincoln Post, No. 13, Department of New York, G. A.

' [From the rajm Town (Africa) Argue. Nov. M.] The Ntw Vouk H>:&ai.I> is truly a wonderful paper. As soon a* the news reached Loudon of the failure of the I'ily of Glasgow Ban It a upccial correspondent was immediately despatched to Glasgow front the Loudon office. The Hmti.u man, rushing in where British journalists feared to tread, saw the uieuagez of the liauit, one or two of the directors, the cashier, and, doubtless, the hull porter, and from these vari ous fouutaiu heads be drew rills of information which were telegraphed to the London office aud the nee poured in a continuous stream through the Atlantic cable to New York. The matter was, per haps. scarcely of less interest in London than ia New Yoik. RANSACKED BY BURGLARS. The residence of Mr( K. L.
