When the Rus sians entered Bazia-Bey village, of the dis trict of hski-JSaghra, tour hundred Mussul man, who had sought refuge in different places, and among whom were women and children, were massacred, regardless of age or sex. A Mussulman and three women, two oi them wofinded and their children, were the only ones who escaped the massacre. More than thirty Mussulman, who had emigrated toTirnova. were carried off by the Cossacks and Buliranar.8, who torciby toolr them to that town, alter having compelled the wo men to wear christian costumes. Reouf Pasha telegraphs the following oc currences in the country where his army is ODeratintr: "The Mussulman villages in the district ot Lski-Saehra are scenes ot unheard of atrocities on the part ot the enemy, in a viilaee nearGuilm every male inhabitant was massacied. ihe women were compelled to change their names and to take off their veils.

Attacked by imperial troops, the Liulcarians ned. alter setting hre to tne houses." I transmit to vou the following telegram relating to the acts of barbarity committed by Kussim troops while in uie utioman tern ton', in Asia and Europe, recently. The tel- etrram is from Ismail U)iki Pasha, command ing an and uayaziu, at iasnguera: ine Russians have pillaged all the property of Cheik Hussien Evlin l oussoufe, ot the village of Ichgli, and taken all his family prisoners. Five or six Kurd cmeis trom lahir iiueuiK, who have been asked by the enemy to join him, also the notable Bedir Acha and fifty seven other persons of his suite, bclonging to the tribe of Yuchmi, were seized nnd carried off to an Armenian bishopric, in the vicinity of Etch Kilisee, and massacred there. Top-rak-Kaleh.as well as the villages in the vicin ity of Zantichok Guedick, near Massoum Guedik, and generally all those crossed hy the Russians in their retreat, have been destroyed, a great number of the inhabitants of these localities, Mussulmans and chris tians, with their families, have been ill treated and carried away by the enemy to Zenk and to Cara Bonlok. Every kind of property belonging to twelve tribes, each composed of thirty-two houses or tents, were seized by the enemy. Two notables of the tribe of Teki and Bedry Bey, settled at Uerker, a village of Iara Kalisse, and forty old men, women and children who hail sought refuge in the mountains were brought to the Russians who, during their march to ward liivan, killed them one after another, as well as a great number of other inoffen sive unfortunate. Every Mussulman of the latter city, regardless of age or sex, and who had surrendered to the Russians, were either sent to Siberia or ruthlessly massacred. The following telegram was received from the Kaiankin of Lolticlia: The Russians at Serne sent, for Hadjo llanied Pasha, a former soldier of the villago of DUkendjilar, and out him to death. Several other inhabitants of the villages in the juridiction of Lei tcha met with the same iate. A Mus sulman with his child traveling in a carriage was attacked with bayonets by the enemy, Tha child araa killed. Telegrams from Mus- tessanf of 1 iruova ana Mehemed Ah Pasha state that the Cossacks and Bulgarians, after linrmed the Mussulman of reirailar. an hour distant from Pirva, put them uuder cniard of a detachment of Bulgarians, who murdered six of them. The villages of Cadi, of Visit and of Lezarelli have been Lburned bv the enemy. The Bulgarians tied Hadji Muslapha hnendj, secretary ot tue authorities of Pirva, to a tree, and left him three davs exDOsed to the sun. After this Vapy took him to Ellna, where he ia still kept a priuouer, with his daughter-in-law, who was compelled to wear christian costume. A tfloram from Suleiman Pasha says the Bul garians burned the Mussulman villages in the vicinity of Cai-Atli, in the Tchippan district. The vdlafe of- Tchoulka, on the road to Zagura, an4 every adjoining Mus sulman market tot pnt the same fate. A number of inhabitants were massacred. The Bulgarians of Comoudja, on their Mvli. have burned every Mussulman market town in the neighborhood. A few Mussulman and women, who fell into their hands, tyere put to death in a mast cruel manner. A telegram from Mehemet Ali l"a ska states that nineteen inhabitants of the village of Tchaina, among whom were three men. the rest women and children fleeing before the enemy, had taken retuge on .vount Kodja JeKiar, were overtaken by tlie Ims- sians. raght C liiem wcro iwusmaicu, uu fnnr rhilron were left near the dead bodies of their mothers.

The work of extermination is con tinued every day with relentless violence. liONOON, August Jo. A Russian omciai bulletin admits that the Russians, after de feating the Turkihh attack upon Aghastar Thursday morning, were compelled by the strong lurkish reinforcements to reure trom Sulton, Koi and Mehemet. The Jhtlfetin gives the Russian loss in these operations as tour hundred killed and many wounded. The latest Russian bulletin says: "Our attack on Aghastar has not been renewed since Thurs day. The Turks have concentrated in strong force at that point and are intrenching, uur troops are concentrated in sight of the enemy. In the two engagements at Aghastar on Thursday we lost ten officers and sixty-six men killed, eleven officers and two Hundred and seventy four men wounded." Ihe KuFsian bullelin relative to the battle at Schipla pass says: "Fighting continued all of Friday. Our troops retain their positions. Our loss during the four days fighting has been considerable, twenty-seven wounded officers and nine hundred men being brought to Gubrova. The number of killed is un known. Cannonading in the pass was re sumed on Saturday." A Constantinople dispatch, dated bunday, says: "A telegram irom auieiman rasna an nounces that he has taken two Russian works- in the pass." A telegram from Adrianople says: "Aews has been received that Suleiman had taken the third work and was attacking Zalerosa." A Russian bulletin, dated Gornv Satudere. Sunday, says: " Flighting continued on Satur day in the pass with great violence. Our troops held their position and repulsed seve ral powerful attacks. To-day (Sunday) Gene ral Dorsclii.nsky, who commanded the force holding the pass for the first three days, met his death." A dispatch dated Erzeroum. Saturday, says: " lho Russians advanced on jvurit&nara and Weizinkay ou Friday but were compelled to retreat after hve hours engagement, dur ing which some of their ammunition cases were exploded by Turkish shells." A dispatch from Constantinople says a telegram was received there sbiting that the Russians lost four thousand killed and woaaded in this affair. Mukhtar Pasha telegraphs from Gudekeler, on Saturday, as follows: "We have gained a treat victory, having earned the hights ot Kezeltepe during the night and repulsed three Russian attempts to retake them. Two hundred cannon were brought into action. The engagement was a great battle, lasting until six o clock Saturday evening, I he ene my were routed along the whole line, with a loss of four thousand killed and wounded. We captured an immense quantity ot arms and munitions. General Tchoutchowassoff, commanding the Russian cavalry, was killed. We lost hrteen hundred killed and wounded, including several officers. My horse wan wounded." Dervish Pasha, telegraphing from Batoum Friday, claims to have captured a redoubt of Djiangura. One hundred Russians were killed. London, August 27. A correspondent, an eye-witness of Friday's battle in Shipka pass, telegraps Saturday: Kiding back wark from Shipka through the night, I passed masses of reiniorcements of artillery and in fantry hurrying forward. Their strength ou?ht to secure the safety ot all the import' ant positions.' The same correspondent telegraphs Irom Uukarest bunday : Infor mation follows me that fighting at the pass is still raging, having been renewed again to day, but General Radetzky continues to hold his own. It is now a question ol endurance: but I adhere to my impression that Shipka pass is safe, and unless Suleiman Pasha can run a column of his troop9 through another pass he will wreck his army by thus dashing U ;t. ci,;.i,. an.;,. pondent explains: "Shipka pass consists merely of a section of the Balkans, lower than the surrounding hights. There i3 no jflroperly scaled route, but merely a track over this lower section ot the ridge, which is ex tremely broken. The highest point of the road, is flanked on either tide by a spur com manding it; also the ridge behmd. The first of these two spurs can rake the road leading to the Russian position, ihese spurs break off abruptly and precipitously, affording no access into the valleys. Iheir sole use to the Turks, therefore, was in affordin positions from whence to flank central Ship ka ridge. It is possible, also, for troops to descend from them, struggle through the in tervening glens, and climbing the steep slopes oi the btupKa nuge, give a hand to each other on the road which runs along its sum niit. - This done, the Shipka position would of course be turned ; but this advantage would oe of but httle avail until the road had been pened by carrying the fortified positions on it. The road over Shipka ridge constitutes for an army the only practicable line of com munication in this section of the Balkans. On the twenty-first, when the fighting began, the Russians were a httle over three thousand strong, with fortifications. The Russians on this day had mines in front of their trenches, which were exploded as the head of the Turk ish assaulting parties were massed above them. It is reported that a large number of Moslems were blown into fragments. By Thursday evening the Turks had so worked around on both Russian flanks that it seemed as though the claws of a crab were about to close behind the Russians, and that the Turk ish columns climbingthc Russian ridge would give a hand to each other on the road on the ear ot tho Russian position. At this su preme moment, the two Russian generals ex pecting momentarily to be surrounded, sent at last a telegram to tno czar, telling him what they expected, how they had tried to prevent it, and how, please God, when driven into their positions, they would hold them until reinforcements should arrive; they and their men would hold their ground till they lost their blood. At six o'clock there was heavy fighting, of which the Russians could take no advantage, since the reserves were all engaged: the men were beaten out with heat, fatigue, hun ger and thirst . There was no water within the Russian lines, and the men lay panting pa the bare risjge, reckless of the fact that it was swept by the Turkish rifle fire. Others were dragged a toot down among the locks, but were forced to give ground. The cliffs resounded with the triumphant Turkish shouts. It was at this juncture that the re inforcements under Radetzky arrived. Rad etzky took command of these with others who ai rived subsequently, which brought up the number of defenders of the pass to about thirteen thousand. The road, even in the rear of the Russian positions adong which the reiniorcements had to advance, was swept by the Turkish fire, and the reinforcements suf fered heavily. The object of Friday 8 battle was to clear the Turks Irom the well -wooded position which hanked the Russian positions on the road. The f?ghting was confined to musketry, and continued all day desperately. The Russiaus could make but little impress sion by a front attack on the Turks. The correspondent says occasionally at some point the Russians would be hurled clear back out of the wood altogether. I could mark the Turks following them eagerly to its edge and down, while pouring out a galling fare. Ihe troops charged with making this front attack merely succeeded in preventing the Turkish efforts to work round to the Russian rear. It wa8 therefore deciaed p.t noon to deliver a counter flank movement. The two battalions executing this movement had to advance under a heavy fire from the Turkish moun tain guuc Fighting on the Turkish front and flank lasted ful)7 an hour, but at last the Turks were seen withdrawing their battery of mountain guns near the right flank, which was a sign that danger menaced it it it stayed longer. Their left battery followed their ex ample, which showed that the Russians had gamed tte ridge on the iurtisu ieit also There remained but the central peak of the Turkish position; that carried, the ridge would be ours and our right flank would be free from the dangerous pressure on it General Draginiroff has been wounded in the knee. The Times's Therapia dispatch says the governors of Adrianople and Philippopolia telegravus that Suleiman Pasha has taken Shipka pass,' but &w of this has come direst from Suleiman Pasha. The continuation of the Daily Neirs cor respondent's discription of Friday's battle in Shipka pae shows that the central peak of the Tiukisu puscn was carried with the bayonet by the Russians, Mts the troops who accomplished this being led by Ge'ncia! Radetzky in person. The eoriqsnondent Sliys: "ihe lurks endeavored to jStake it. but weta ttipulsed. As well as thus clearing his flank. General Radetiky also pushed back the Turks from his front. The Turks will doubtless renew th attack to-morrow, Sun day, with fresh troops, probably iotli in front and on the flanks. They are reported as pressing on through a narrow and difficult pass on the east side of Shipka, leadingdown into innopa, out i Know mat uranii i-uhe Nicholas has ordered a brigade to that point. with more troops to follow: also, that rein forcements are streaming on to Shipka. The position of ieneral Radetzky has broken the dangerous pres.mre of his tl,uik. All danger is not yet over, but the atmosphere looks much clearer. The correspondent estimates the Russian loss on Friday at fifteen thousand killed and wounded.J from the manner in which the Russians are pushing forward reinforcements to Ship ka pass, it seems ibat they ave confident cf being able to resist any advance from the river Lom or 0?iu:m Bazar. The Servian district ofliciaU have received orders not to give passports to the militia. The Turks took Kizemtepe.but in attempt ing to take Kurukdora were entirely defeat ed. The Russian Generals Komaroff and Tschanscheadgo were wounded. A collision almost occurred at Nicopolis be tween the Russian and Roumanian forces, in consequence of the Russian commandant hav ing caused a Roumanian soldier to be flogged. Prince lcherkasski s removal from the ad ministration of Bulgaria is imminent. Renewed fighting in Asia Minor is immi nent. Russian reinforcements continue to arrive at Alexandnanople. Twelve thousand men and forty-eight guns reached Knvan to reinforce General Tergukassotf. St. Pbtkrshcro. August 27. The news from Constantinople announcing the capture of several forts in Shipka pass is, according to the present information.unfounded. The fol lowing official intelligence is published : "Ac cording to the latest news from headquarters our troops have not yielded an inch of their cu:.i " Constantinople, August 27. Up to ten minutes before eleveu o clock this forenoon no official dispatch had been received con firming the announcement telegraphed yes terday by the governor of Adrianople, that Suleiman Pasha had captured Shipka pas3. Pabis, August 27. Le Temps says it has intelligence that Suleiman Pasha has cup tured the Shipka intrenchments, with fifteen guns, and has pushed on to Gatzrova.

Several of those who took an active part in the late strike were Dresent. and a number or sneeches were made, all in tavor ot pressing their ciauns at the ballot-box. The result of the meeting was the adoption ot preambles and resolu tions declaring that for "the first time in the history of the country the laboring and wealth-producing element stands lace-to-tace with capital and non-producers; that this state of things has been produced entirely by continuous exactions, oppressions and rob bery, direct and indirect, of the whole work ing people by said non-producers; theretore we sever now and forever all connection with the political organizations now existing and form a workingmen's party, to lie composed of workingmen only; that the highest duty of the workingmen is to unite in one great brotherhood against the common enemy, and that we vill hereafter; in our political action, have nothing to do with any candidates for office who are not workingmen, and also who do not thoroughly represent the interests of the workingmen."

Leubrie's JUSTICE FIELD On the (Question, Did Justice Bradley or 'ot Read to him and Justice Clif ford an Opinion in the Florida Case Contrary to that for which he Voted ! It would Appear from an Interview that he did not Bead, but that lie Orally Gave Expression to Such an Opinion There can he no Doubt of "Joe's" Perfidy. San Francisco. August 27. A few days ago the Daily Exchange published an edito- nal suggesting the propriety ot some reply from Justice Field, of the United States su preme court, to an article recently published in the New York Sim charging Justice Brad ley with having read an opinion to Justices Field and Clifford to the effect that the electoral vote of Florida should be given to Tilden and Hendricks, the Republican commissioners re versing his conclusion without alteration of the premises or agreements. Numbers of at tempts have been made by representatives of the press to interview Justice Field on the subject, but he has uniformly refused to say anything on the subject, and in most cases has refused to see them altogether. The Ex change to day publishes an interview with Justice Field, lie at first demurred to giv ing any statement whatever, but finally said, after some reflection, and speaking with great deliberation: "Well, sir, all that I care to say with regard to that is, that Justice Bradley read," with peculiar emphasis on the word read "Justice Bradley read no opinion to me in advance of the formal submission of opinions to the commission. Beyond that I think it would be improper for me to say any thing. If I should enter upon the subject I should probably say a great deal more than I wish to say." "I think I comprehend your reply," said the interviewer. "The point you make is, that the opinion which the Sun says was sub mitted to you and Justice Clifford in writing was so written. It was a mere verbal com munication of the opinion Justice Bradley had arrived at." To this Justice Field replied: "You have my answer all the answer I can now make. Justice Bradley did not read fagain empha sizing fhe word read any opinion topne, as alleged." "Very well," continued the questioner, "there can be no objection t my calling at tention ia my publication of this conversation to the emphasis you put on the word read; that will make the significance of your reply as clear to the reader as it is now to me?" "You have all the answer I have to make," Dersisted the iustice. "I will not discuss the i matter in any of its details." In the course of some further conversation, the justice urged it as his preference not to be dragged into a controversy at all. He says he regretted that his name had been used, as fhe was associated with Justice Braaley, of the bench of" the United States supreme court, and that it would be exceedingly unpleasant were their social relations to be disturbed by such a controversy, lie also emphatically declined to go any further into the subject, urging that the members of the convention were bound by resolutions to respr-ct the secrecy of their deliberations.

After the speaking the crowd were invited to partake of one of the most elegantly prepared dinners it has ever been our good fortune to see spread, and they did full justice to the rich viands.
