to do with Gorman.
Wasiiixoto'n, April 23.?Geneml Bradley
Johnson, of Baltimore, the noted exOonfederate
olllcer, has been over here to
warn Secretary Manning against doing too
mnch tor Senator Gorman. He spoke
freely, before a room fall of vislton. General
Johnson said apprehension was general
in the State of Maryland that the
Federal patronage of the State was to be
used to promote the fortunes of one genUeman,
and secure his re-election to Die
. Senate. That impression, he thought,
Wfs exceedingly injurious to the party.
He did not share in it, and lie urged the
1 Secretary by some public act to demonstrate
that it was without foundation.
That pnblic act, he claimed, could only be
the appointment of a man to some conspicaons
place, who, it will be apparent,
tpan aulnnlurl Kdnam-a rtt Ilia nnaltHnallniia
niuiwn ui'.u ukwiu-i v* u? ijuaiiiiMuuua
and fitness, and not for personal considerations.
' He said that gentlemen of his views
considered it extremely important that
the Federal patronago should bekept out
of the local political straggles in Maryland.
He did not ask that any appointment
should be made for the ptirpoao of
injuring any gentleman's political aspirations,
but urged that it thould be equally
understood that it was not to be used in
favor of any one. It ought, he thought
to be bestow#d upon the whole Democratic
party of the State, and not for or against
any ono. The experience of the Republican
party in New. York, in the case of Secretary
Folger, showed how the people
would resent any interference by the Federal
Administration in their local affairs.
General Johnson then gave abrlef view of
the political situation in Maryland from
his standpoint. The Secretary, iu reply,
aid he would bear in mind what General
Johnson had Baid on $Tsubjeci

Middlkbooiu!?, W. Va., April 2".?Our
usually quiet community -was startled yes- i
terday by a report of a probable fatal i
shooting affray, which occnrrcd on the ;
ridge between the bead waters of Muddy
creek and Garrell's run, about four miles
from here, between B. It. Twyman and
fc Smith. The particulars are as follows:
For several months tbero has been a
kind of neighborhood fued, which is
scarcely worth relating, but'which has
engendered some bad blood among certain
of the young mon of that section.
About 10 A.,u. yesterday young Smith was
seen going np Muddy creek in the direction
of the ridge, and the next seen of him
was about the middle of the afternoon
when he went to the Louse of a farmer
and informed him that he had shot Twyman;
that Twyman needed assistance;
that he was on his way home and that he
intended to come to town to-morrow and
give himself up. It wns observe 1 that
Smith's /ace was somewhat bruised, vjrlion
he remarked that they had had a tight
and that he had shot Twyman in self defense.
Search was made and, Twyman was
iuunu i* ucbu wiiu iwu nuuuuu, uiuuc (
by a 32 calibre revolver, on either aide in c
the neighborhood of the stomach. Dr. H. <]
A. Ryraer was instantly summoned and f
Twyman revived sufficiently to tell who 'I
shot him; that they met; that the feud j
referred to above was mentioned; that he t
remarked that enough had been' said c
[ about it and that it had better be dropped
before some one was hurt; when Smith
drew hia revolver and shot him. Twyman
was taken to his father's resldenco. 111b 0
recovery is extremely doubtful. After ci
going home Smith came to town and gave e!
himself up and wa3 committed to jail. ^
The victim is quite a prominent teacher
in this and Ititchio counties and is highly i
esteemed by all who know him. At the l<
timo of the encounter he woh on his way
to a singjug school- lie had been from "
Ritchie county, where he spent the winter J|
teacliing. but two or three weeks. Smith, ^
though T5f a gond family, does not bear b
the best reputation. He has been mixed
up in broils heretofore and has not, to say J*
the jeast, been a model young man.

{iven for marines to be ianded and form-1
3d on th% dock of the steamship |
company at noon in heavy marching
order, with forty rounds of ammunition
each, prepared to^take a special

South Pacific ports, were directed to renain
on the steamer, and the commandng
oiHcera of the men*of-war in the harjor
were ordered to furnish Colonel Heyivood
with Gatlingand Hotchliss guns and
lfty sailors to accompany the battalion,

nothing to show where the conflict oc- t
curred. The declaration of war is not ex- <
pected to follow. Directly upon a rupture i
of diplomatic relations.Baron De Staal i
and Sir Edward Thornton would be re- r
called and Russia would then probably c
order General Komtroff to,advance on t
Herat, England meanwhile occupying t
Quatta and Candahar. The fact that the li

the Sues Canal, was then ordered back, is C
