[Entered at tho Postoffice Alexandria, Virgin I is., as second-class matter.] THE ARMENIAN BUTCHERY. The stories of the massacre aud un? speakable outrages in Armenia have c ;u.-eii a .-fixation in Europe approach? ing t a attending the Bulgarian atro I city ol 1876, which preceded the Rus so-Turkish war. The accounts of whole? sale slaughter and fearful atrocities made public Saturday will assuredly arouse the British government to pro? test, and in demanding a complete re? versal of the Turkish policy toward a helpless race of Christians. The details of some of the massacres are so revolting that if they were not overwhelmingly confirmed they would be rejected as iDcredible, even among the most savage races on earth. It is understood Lord Kimberly is preparing a remonstrance, which will be tele? graphed at once to Constantinople, and be presented to the Sultan in such terms as to bring the matter to an im mediate crisis. The troubles that led to these crown? ing outrages began with the Armenians' refusal to pay taxes on the plea that the frequent Turkish raids had impover? ished them. A few troops sent to col? lect the taxes were beateu. At almost the same time there was a Kurdish raid on Armenian cattle, re? sulting in a light in which two Kurd3 were killed. The friends of the Kurds took the corpses to Moush and de? clared that the Amenians had overrun the land and were killing and plunder? ing right and left. The Governor of Hitlis, Asiatic Tur? key, reported to the Porte that a se? rious revolt had broken out and obtain? ed permission to send all obtainable troops to the scene. Marshal Zeiki Pasha, commander of the army corps stationed at Erzingen, was ordered to proceed thither aud di? rect operations. The Governor ar? rived first, however, and before an im? posing array of regulars the Armenians quietly submitted. Then came the horrible part of the story. The Governor of Bitlis resolved to make an example in order to pre? vent a repetition of the revolt. He or? dered the troops to fire upon the de? fenseless people. The order was obey? ed with alacrity. The soldiers only rested when 25 villages had been de? stroyed and 6,000 to 10,000 inhabitants killed. No compasti m was shown to age or sex, not even whou the victims fell sup? pliant at their feet. All met such fate as even the darkest ages of darkest Af? rica hardly witnessed. Womau hnod and innocence were but a mockery before the soldiers' cruel lust, that ended its debauchery by stabbing women to death with the bayonet. Tender babies were impaled with the same weapon on the dead mother's breast or perhaps seized by the hair to have their heads lopped off with the sword. In one place 300 or 400 women, after being forced to serve vile purposes by the merciless soldiers, were backed to pieces by sword and bayonet in the valky. In another place some 200 weep ing aud wailing wonn-u begged for com? passion, falling at the commander's j feet. Bui the blood-thirsty wretch, ! ufte; r leri ig their violation, directed his soldiers to dispatch them in a similar way. In another pl.tcesome 60 young brides and the more attractive girls were crowded into a church, and after viola? tion were slaughtered, the blood flowing from the church door. At stiii another place a large com [ pnuy, under tbe lead of their high priest, fell down before them, begging for com? passion and averting that they had nothing to do with the culprits. The proposal was made to several of the more attractive women to change their faith, in which case their lives were to be spared. They said : "Why should we deny Christ ? We are no more than these," pointing to the mangled forms of their husbands and brothers. "Kill us too !" And it was done. A great effort was made to save one beauty, but three or four quarreled over her and she sank down like her sisters. On the admissions of Turkish sol? diers, some of whom tearfully protest? ed that they merely obeyed orders, at least 6000 people were killed. Several soldiers admitted that they had dis? posed of a hundred victims each. Some families were burned with kerosene in their own houses. Mr. Hall ward, the British consul at Van, went to the scene and reported to the British ambassador at Constanti? nople, who protested to the Porte. The Sultan expressed horror at the crime, aud ordered an immediate report from Marshal Zi-ki, which appears to have seriously iuvoived the Governor of i Bitlis. The latter, in self-defense, and as a means of obtaining revenge, for \ mulated the grave charge against Mr. Hall ward of having incited the Arme? nians to revolt. The matter is being investigated by British officials. The Sultan has decided to send a commission composed of three mem? bers oi his military household and one civilian to Sassoun for the purpose of making an impartial inquiry into the j outrages on Armenians. The latest I news is to the effect that many of tbe Armenians who were supposed to have been killed fled from the soldiers and I are now returning. MKDICIXAL.
