WEDNESDAY. FEB. 26. __ BY TELEGRAPH? Reported Expressly for the Daily Leader. St. Petersburg, Feb. 24. —The Russian Admiral commanding the squadron in the Grecian Archipelago has demanded from the Porte an ex plicit explanation of the report preva lent in Turkey, and published in a recent issue of the Levant Herild, to the effect that a vessel of the Russian fleet had afforded material aid and comfort to Cretan insurgents. The Porte replied that the Sul fan has re ceived no such charge against Rus sian officials, and the governmgnt se verely ceneures any newspaper pub lishing such statements. New York, Fob. 25.—The New York Herald’s Havana special gives an account of another battle in Yuca tan, in which the rebels were defeated. President Cabual of St. Domingo, has fled to Venezuela. The southern force have entered the capital. Thirty one deaths from cholera occur daily in St. Domingo. . One of the Philadelphia theatre managers distributes live hundred loaves of bread to the poor, every Wednesday morning. The Louisvile Journal suggests a new test oath for Congressmen, that they shall swear to support every thing outside of the Constitution. When “Mark Twain’’ spoke of George Francis Train as an “eminent old lady,” we don’t suppose he had any idea that Francis was going over to England to be confined. All the prisoners who escaped from the St. Joseph jail on the first inst., have been captured, except James Cordon, Joseph Parker and John C. Smith alias Loper. For each of them six hundred dollars reward is offered. An old officer of the army used to say that the three duties of a quarter master, as understood by the quarter master himself, were: first, to make himself comfortable; second, to make himself more comfortable; third, to make himself most comfortable. If any time remained he was to employ it in making everybody else uncom fortable. Thad. Stevens has just written a letter upon negro suffrage which from its contents, merits attention. It reads as follows: “So far as I took my position with regard to negro suffrage, it was and is that universal suffrage is an inalien able right, and that since the amend ments to the constitution, to deprive the negroes of it would be a violation of the constitution, as well as of a nat ural right.—'True, I deemed the hast eningof the bestowal of that franchise • as essential to the welfare of the na- | tion, because without it I believe that | the government will pass into the I hands of rebels and their friends, and I that such an event would be disastrous to the whole country.—With univer sal suffrage, I believe the true men of the nation can maintain their position. Without it, whether that suffrage be impartial, or in any way qualified, I look upon this Republic as likely to relapse into an oligarchy, which will be ruled by coarse coppcrheadism and proud conservatism. I have never in sisted that the franchise should be unjustly regulated so as to secure a Republican ascendancy, but I have insisted, and do insist, that there can l>e no unjust regulation of that fran chise,.which will give to any other party the power, if the Republicans are true to themselves, and do not fall into their usual vice of cowardice. The Republicans, once beaten into a min ority by the force of negro predjudice, will never again obtain the majority, and the nation will become a despo tism.” Josh Billings in Chicago. Chicago is the Jeruselum, the Mec ca ov the west. Every buddy tells yew what an awful ci tty she iz, and that thure will he a million ov live be ings in her, in a few days. The growth uv this ci tty haz bin lively. I knew all about it when it didn’t hav 12 hundred soles nor hodys in it, and i presume its popu lash tin iz now nearly 200 thousand : I dare not ask the amount of her folks, for the same reason named above, i didn’t want tew strain the imaginashun out here, every buddy haz as much as they can do now, tew keep from shouting. While in Chicago I hadsevral taiko with her souls, and i gathered from what they told me that New York would soon be a second klass place, if it didn’t hav euuy pullbacks. Chicago already exceeds New York, in the amount of divorce tunnage, and in the number ov her play-cards advising stranger to beware of “confi dence meu.” Yew kan read this cheerful remind er every 30 feet, awl over the city. It almost makes one think that thai’r “ Buncome” in it. Ts Chicago owns herself, or one-half ov herself, she is truly a big thing, but if somebody else owns her, my opinion is that the day will come when some body will have elephants to sell, and few buyers. What relashun she may sustane in fewter toother cities in the Union, I don’i intend to tell, but I will bet some 30 dollars that Saint Louis, 40 years from hense, will be the most city uv the two, and over 4 times as mutch as herself. I don’t serpoze that there iz a single soul in Chicago, if he should ever read this prophesy, but what would be anx ious tew send me a bottle uv “Mrs. Winslow’s Soothing Syrup,” but if they do it, I certainly should see them, ams go a package uv worm lozzengers better.
