II BIS MAIL ROBBERY.
Thirty Thousand Dollars Taken on the Streets of New York, FROM A MAIL TRANSFER WAGON. ]!(.? n Iieglatered Bag Was Stolen IljIMil Thloves-Their Work Interrupted. Howerer-A Bobbery Aj>purentlj Eany to Accoi ify I l*li. Sp Yobk| May 17.?A bug of registerel mail was lost or stolen from one of the big transfer wagons in Fifth avenue, near Thirty-fifth itreet, Friday night. Tiie content's were valued at $KI,000, Tin* postoflice authorities are not fully Futislied that the bag was stolen from ItheVagOB. The superintendent of the mails, who; investigated the loss and finding of the bag, made the following report to the postmaster yesterday af lirnoon. Policeman Brady, of tlio Nineteenth precinct police, was on duty in Fifth avenue about 8:u0 o'clock last, night. Near tho corner of Thirty-llfth street lie an- :i mailihag lying in the street near the curb. It was one of the large bugs need for registered matter and weighed with contents, 225 pounds. He kicked it and then stooped down and lifted it on end. He was examining it when a man came; from he don't kuow where, and told liiro he had neon a man lift the ling from the tail end of n mail wagon. The man carried the bag from tho waggon to the curb, and then dropped it and ran toward Madison avenue. Ho also told tho nolicomun that that there was a cab following the mail wagon, but ho could not connect the man who took tho bag with the cub. That was all lie knew about Ifc THE rOUCEJUN WAS APPABE.VTLV DAZED. He did not inquire tho man's name or where I10 lived, and lie did not detain him. The policeman look the bag to the police station in a wagon. The bag was not missed by the driver of tho wagon until ho reached his destination, tho Forty-second streot depot. Then the hnck door of the wagon was found to bo unlocked. They were locked by the driver in the presence of witnesses before the wagon left tiio jwstoffico. Policeman Jirady said tho Superintendent had told'him that the bag's contents were worth $.K),U00. Tho man who said he had seen the bag stolen told "" ,L- "lv ? I'flWfftltf. llim"UIU CUU WHO ?imiu ? ? of tho mail wagon, but ho (lid not know whether the thiol got out of tho cab or not. , It is not,at all likely that tho man who stolo the. tag from the wagon will over bo caught. The polico have 110 description of him, awl there is no way of tracing him. Assistant Postmaster Gaylord, one of the men who is not certain that the story told to tho policeman is true, said to-'day he thought it possible that when the wagon struck the grade nt Thirty-fifth street tho tail end being lower thiiii the front end, tho bag rolled against tho door with fjrco jinough to open the spring lock andThen rolled out on tho street. l'lIODAllLY A WELL LAID fLOT. This could hardly be. The lock in the door would almost certainly break bofore it would spring. It was not broken when it was examined at tho Forty-second street station, und it was surely locked when tho wagon loft the postofllce. It scorns probnulo that there was a plot to rob tlio wagon by men who knew that it contained the bag of registered letters. There were probably two persons, and there may be more intcrcstc<l.itt it, perhaps some of them in the call. The inan who pulled the bag out of tho wagon probably had a key to the lock on tho door. If the bag had dropped ont of the wagon accidentally the driver of the cab would surely have called to the driver of the wagon informing him of the loss. _ Very likely tho thieves intended to lift the bag into tho cab and get off with it, but they were not quick cnottg/i v about it anil were frightened off. PossiV ''ly Ihoy saw Policeman Brady coming, \ and tile bug was too heavy to be handled easily or quickly.

PnihADKLPHiA, Mtiy 17.?Tho precocious boys o! the High School, who recently, distinguished themselves as amateur burglars by forcing the locks of sovcral of the professors' desks and abstracting the roll books, Friday cclisped this performance by an attempt to burn down the school building. Luckily they did not succeed, and tho old striicture'still stands. The discovery 01 the attempt was madu shnrtlv before tho formal opening of the school at 8:45 ft. m. Prof. Christint' entered the-recitation room of l'rof. A. H. Smyth, at tho northwest corner of the second lloor, and wan amazed to see a long black lino extending along the Broad street side of tho room. Following it up, lie found a loosely-twined rope, which ran under the desk of the professor on a raised platfonn and ended in a basket of waste paper. A hasty examination showed that tho rope had been used as a fuse, ami thtu it not) been on fire. It had been burned for a; considerable distance, and the flame's had blackened the Door where it lay without actually setting it on droit'was at once removed, but the black line made by the flames remained to show tho attempt mado to Imrntlic building. Nothing was discovered to show just when (lie attempt was made, or by whom, though suspicion naturally rests upon the boys.

[Copi/Hyhl by the Xcio Yelk Aooclatnt Prctt.] Pajtih, .May 17.?The iffiench einbnasy j at Tooi hug telegraphed the official j details of the attack on the Czurewitch. From these it appears that the Czare witch's assailant wasnpoliceman iinnioa Thunda, who hail been eight years in tho service. Tho Czarewitch and his suito Were leaving Otsu in a jinerickshair, having just visitod a Buddhist temple. Both the Czarewltch anil Prince George went to tho shrines with their hoots on, and when the Princotwere enu ring the jinerickfllunv Jhunda, who was standing guard, dealt thu Czarowitch a blow | With his sword. Prince George's return blow with his stick threw Thunda eov-1 oral feet. The policeman rose ami made another rush at the Cxarewitch. A ! Japanese closed the front door of tho carriage and other Japanese wrested tho sword from Thunda nnd cut him, inflicting a severe wound. The L'zarowitclis injury has already JioaJeil. A NEW VOLCANO. The Dix-Viumvo Sieclo states that advices liavo been received at Marseilles from Trubijon'lo to the cITect that a new volcano has appeared in Armenia at tho summit of Mount Nimrod, in tho district of Van, vomiting forth flames anil lava. Tho villages at tho base of the mountain havo been destroyed, and many persons aro said to havo been killed or injured. Tiio fugitives are coming outside the range of destruction. They aro almost entirely destitute and tho greatest misery prevails, among them. Although the Chamber of Deputies has debated tho tariff for a fortnight the measure practically lias not advanced a step. SNOW STORMS IN FHANCB. Snow storms prevailed to-day at Belfort and Nancy. Tho mountains of Alsace are covered with snow. 11,-niilJimid Francaine has a war liko article on ICnglnnil and Egypt.

Stanley when he lectured in Albert Hall, Sheffield, indicate that for a few moments tho scono must lMvc* beftlureri upon a riot. When tho tattuxcr #?,h jibout beginning, a tall'man", with a slouch hat, walked into tho building, and walking up tho aisle handed pamphlets from a hiree bag that ho carried to tho people in the audience. Tbc pamphlet bore on its cover thin title, "Stanley's Exploits, or Civilizing Africa." Naturally, the audience supposed that tho booK contained one of Stanley's lectures, but when they discovered that it was made up simply of a violent attack npon that gentleman, a cry went up that tho man shtfuld bo put out. Meanwhile a sccond man had been distributing these tilings in the gallery, and tbc cry was speedily taken tip there. Some of tho audience.arose, anil made threatening demonstrations towards the distributors of the book, upon which a number of their associates rallied around them, and if it had not been for the immediate arrival of the police, the affair would have probably wound up in airco nam. j.uc police bbisuu tho principal olleiidcrs und ejected them from the liall. There was a large audience present, nnd when -Mr. Stanley appeared ho wan greeted with cheers that Jastcil many minutes. At tho conclusion of the Iccture Mr. Stanley left tlio building unattended, and entered his carriago, whorcupon a crowd oi fellows who had gathered on one of thb corners rim 16: tho vehicle, surrounded it and tried to assault him. The police, however, had anticipated this, as they had rcccivcd warning of it. Tliov charged tho crowd and put it to rout. Besides tho mortification nnd somewhat nccessary shock tho lecturer suffered no evil effects. - iiuau liciiti/uivo Striving For n Reconciliation?They Want Fence.

That would have boon done long ago but for the followers of Mr. Healy, as many of tho McCarthy party aro favorable to such a course, as was 'evidenced by Mr. O'Connor's letter to tho convention of tho League, which was held in Newcastle yesterday. In this .communication ho begs that nothing bo said which will be likely to retard tho conciliation of Mr. Parncll.

The Chilian captain says his vessol has not called at nay American port. Consequently Jio nays it is not i possible that the United States authorities will interfere with tho movements of either himself or his vessel. An olDcer of tho Esmeralda, in reply to a question put to him in tho telegraph office at Acapnlco as to tho probability of an old-fashioned sea flglit between tho Charleston and tho Esinoralda, said in a jocular and rather ambiguous way: Oh! tho Itata is already out of.danger. Sho has plenty of coal and provisions to carry hor to h'er destination." This remark has given riso to tho report that the Itata coaled at sea and proceeded to her destination while the Chilian warship steamed for Acapulco to throw tho United States authorities off the track.
