C, Juno 0 - The pre matura promulgation of Gen.

It is announced that tho majori ty report will soon be presented by Judge Orth, in which tho position of the adminis tration in this matter will bo sustained, and its action vindicated. The debate on these reports will probably opon this week. Election Xcfrro It iot Hoivcn De feated. A riot occurred bclwocn tho whites and blacks in 7th ward during tho Mayoralty election to-day.

Xlic Koninania llutclicry. New Yobe, June C. Tho Israelite citi zens are much disturbed by tho uncon firmed rumors of- wholesale butcheries in, lioumania. Telegrams sent to Sir Samuel Montefiore, in London, and M. Cremienx-, Fresidont of tho Jewish Society in Paris,. begging tho latest and fulle.it information,, have not yet been answered. The Jewish rabbis preached on tho subjoct yesterday, one of them expressing the hope that tho reports would provo incorrect, and another stating as a fact that, instead of Jows monopolizing the trade in Boumauia and becoming very .rich they are so heavily taxed as to render it impossible, and that ihey are not permitted to own even -a foot of land or house to live in. Tho absence! of furthor information tends to augment tho general belief that the roports are at least greatly exaggerated. Private advices from Liverpool state that tho continental buyers yesterday cleared tho breadstuff's market ahead of cable quo tations; honco English purchasers had to fall back on our market, and the result was that they swept it .in los3 than ten minutes of two hundred thousand bushels of wheat, and woro dissatisfied that they could not get a sufficient supply of flour for immediate shipping purposes. To-day (Sunday) ordors have' been -received by cible from Franca for further purchases, and there exists now no doubt that serious troubles are apprehended on tho conti nent. War in the But of Europe is among the immediate probabilities of the summer. Russia is again regarded as an aggressor by tho Western powers, rind it is believed that Prussia this time will join Franco in preventing the Czar, from dealing a death blow to 'Turkey. It is evident that tho Egyptian Viceroy's preparations for war against Turkey are openly encouraged and aided by Russia, and tho Crimean war may have to be fought over again to keep the Czar out of Constantinople. Rumors of War. The large demand for breadstuffs for France and Prussia his led to rumors that those powers are on the eve of hostilities. These rumors havo had some effect in speculative circles. CINCINNATI. Typogrnpliical. Cikcinnati, Juno 0. The International Typographical Union convened in the Council Chamber this morning in annual session at 0 o'clock. President Isaao D.

When Miss Lewis wa? placed in nomina tion. She sought to decline the honor, but tho Union wonld not lUten to declina tion, and she was accordingly elected by acclamation, in the midst of considerable enthusiasm. One delegate desired a ballot for his aid. It had been so long since he had votod for a woman, be did not want to loso an opportunity on this occasion. I3NGL.AN1. The Ward Fund. London, Junes.

Tho discus sion of tho dogma of infallibility was closed amid great confusion, the debate being forcibly ended. The distinguished Bishops who woro opposed to the schema, and who are among the most profound and able debaters in the Council, wore summarily ruled out of tho debate and prevented from participating in any way in the discussion. They were loud in their protests, and it is believed that they will issue a formal pro test against the arbitrary measure. The opposition were totally unpropared for this manner of procodure on the part of tho Ultramontanlsts, and their indignation at tho defeat of their facilities for maintaining a stubborn opposition to tho dogma is very groat. The excitement in church circles is intense, and tho opposition seems to gain strength from tho efforts of tho Ultramon tanists to crush them. AUSTKIA. (jioing Hack to the Old Keliion. Washington, June 0. A communica tion from Vienna state-3 that binco tho pub lication in Austria of tho laws on religious liberty, a strange movement has arisen in the population of thtt city in consequence. In less than 20 years 080 persons, both sexes, have abjured Christianity for tho Jewish faith, and these perversions aro still on the increase. TURKEY.

Yesterday afternoon about 1 o'clock a fire broke out which spread with alarming rapidity through tho richest quarters of tho city. The flame3 woro first discovered in an old building in Ptria, on the North side of Golden Horn. A strong wind was blowing at tho time, and the fire quickly communi cated to tho adjoining bnildings. The efforts of the firemen and citizens to stop tho progress of tho lUmcs wore futile, and in a few hours the residences of tho English, American and Portuguese Embassadors and Consulates, theatre, many churches and uiosqnos, l,0tX) of the houses and richest stores and shops in the city wero reducod to ashes. Tlio loss of life by tho falling walls has beou fearful, at least thirty people havo been killod or injured by this causo alone. The loss is incalculable. The fire at this hour, noon, is still burning fiercely, and the ex citement of tho people begg-trs nil di-rip tion. KOUMAN1A. A Itsfriilar Kn-Klnx Morj. London, June 5. Dispatches from the United States announce the receipt there of reports of massacres of Jows by Christians in RoTimania. No advices havo reached here on tho subject, and tho continental news agencies deny that there havo leen any recent outrages npon tho Jows of lion mania. A dispatch from Bucharest states that a riot occurred last week at Botusehaly, a village in Woldavia, during a local elec tion. It is described as an ordinary politi cal disturbance, which was quelled without the interference of troops. London, JunoO.

By Mr. Stewart To prohibit contracts fur servile labor. Mr. Stewart explained that tho bill was intended, to apply to Chinese immigration. He said in making coolie labor contracts tho Chinese contrac tors took advantage of tho peculiar re ligious views of Chinamen, to provide for, their return to their native land dead or, olive. These contracts were for four years, and tho Chinese dared not break the con tract for fear, in case of death, his body might not be returned to his own country., The bill would break up this coolie sys tem by prohibition contracts for a longer period tbau sue months, while it' also pro vided for tho rcturn.of the Chinese, to their own country. Tho period would be long enough to enable emigrants to pay tho ex. penso of their passage, and not long enough to mako their importation, as a system, a mcaas of profit. Bill referred to the Judiciary Committee. Xhu Tciai Pacific On motion of Mr. Howard, tho Texas and Pacific railroad bill was made special order. To Save 8,OOO,O0O. Mr. Patterson called up tho bill to repeal all existing laws authorizing tho transpor tation and exportation of goods, wares and merchandise in bond to Mexico, overland or by inUnd waters. He said the Secretary of the Treasury was anxious for the pas sage of the bill, 03 it would da away with immense smuggling on the Mexican border. Mr. Chandler remarked that tho saving to be effected by it would amount to $0, 000,000 por annum. The bill passed without debate. Indian Rill The Previous Question in tlio Senate. The Indian appropriation bill was pro ceeded with and variously amended. A proposed amendment to-the rules was dis cussed. It provides for the termination of debate on amendment to the appropriation bill, by a two-thirds vote. Also, that no amendmont to tho appropriation bill, other than such as directly related to appropria tions in the bill, be roceived or adopted without a two-thirds vote. Mr. Trumbull opposed the proposition, as it attempted to introduco tho rulo of the previous question, which had never yet been resortod to In the Senate. Mr. Hamlin, while favoring the fullest discussion, was in. favor of tho amendment as doinaway with tiresome and unneces sary debates. No action taken. Amendments reported from the Commit tee on Indian Affairs woro adopted oppos ing 8100,000 for industrial schools among tho various Indian tribes, and $50,00 for Indian service in Alaska. Mr. Davis reported amendment to give tho Choctaw Indians $250,000 with bonds boaring date July 1, 1SCC, in execution of treaty stipulations. Mr. Buckingham moved that the bonds be those of 1801.

Loyal Claims, At the evening session, during a dobato on tho bill to pay far stores soized in Rebel States during the war, Mr. Fowler said that the world woald re gard the refusal 'of the Govern ment to pay tho claims of loyal men for losses of war by the neglect of tho Gov ernment, as an act of a highwayman; there was no law, human or divine, to warrant the Government in these pillaging of its own friends.

Your agent being anxious to get immediate possession of the bonds, to oblige him, I borrowed bonds with a cor responding amount of accrued interest, and subsequently replaced them with those which your company had deposited. Thcbpnds in question are, therefore, the property of whom ever may hold them, and shouM be properly transferred to them. Very respectfully, Signed John A. Fisher Former Cashier Bank of Tennessee.

Referring to that portion of tho recent report of the Committee on the- School Fund stat ingtthat bonds Nos. 5,145 and 5,140 were received by me, I beg leave to state that I bought these bonds from responsible parties at G2J, the market value at the time. v hen this value declined so rap idly and I discovered that they were not a good delivery here, 1 presented them to tlio State officials in person for renewal and obtained new bonds.

A YOUIliFlIL HOMlClbjK Alloy Kill hUIMayinatc by Cutting; his Throat witb a Penknife. from the Jonesboro Union Tl&g, Jane 3. Wo have just received the particulars of a sad and lamentable occurrence whicli tpot place, cn Sabbath tho 15th ult., iri our neighboring county of Carter. It apfcara' that two neighboring boys, named Anderson and Whlsenhunt, were encased. on the day above named, in playing tho gome of marbles, when a dispute arose between them In regard to the game. From high words the difficulty came to blows, when young Anderson, gave way, and retreated, a short distance pursued by hi3 antagonist. Placing himself on the defensive, he drew his penknife, and as young Whiscnnunt advanced upon him he strucK a blow with the knife whicli scv ered tlie jugular vein in his neck, causing immediate death. Our correspondent (a minister of the Gospel) adds : "it is the general opinion that young Anderson was not so much in fault; but the terrible and fatal result is an awful and never-to-be-forgotten warning to Sabbath-breakers. Let parents, who have the welfare and eternal happiness of llieir children at heart, heed It. See to it that you inculcate in their youthful minds a proper reverence for that sacred com mand: 'Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy.' , "Young Anderson has not as yet Leen arrested. Both the young men belonged to respectable families. Poldoms." MASONIC. Annual Conclave ol tlie Grainl Com luandcry ot Kentucky IUokoiiIc Knights Templar.

Kinc" aud loval Icsmies dispensed offices, and loyal Legislatures; appropriated bonds to railroad companies, ho was a leaguer and a Radical: and now) uiut iue jjegiMaiaro oi xennes3co is uon-j servative, the Govornor of tho Stater a KiiJiy-vasliy Republican, and tho Na tional Administration and Congress nrcj Radical, Gen Mabry is successfully por-i forming the most wonderful political foa! recorded in the annals of man. Ho in; supporting three different and antagonistic characters at the same time, to wit: in all matters pertaining to local legislation he is n Conservative; Jn matters within tho juris diction ol the Governor, he is a Sontcr Republican; and in all National affairs, such as getting payment for losses sustain ed by him when ho was ,a Babel, ho is a Radical without blemish and without gnile. He is to-day friendly with and enioys the -confidence of Senator Brownlow, dictates uov. benter s policy, manipulates a por tion of tho Legislature, re-organizes tho Conservative party of this county, and con trols, in a measure, the .Conservative (?) press of this city. And white he i3 thus' playing double, and imposing upon tho credulity of tha country, he is. busy in .his efforts,, at homo and abroad, to prejudice mo in the estima tion of friends, by intimating that lorn not true to the principles which Ihave, through evil and through good report, consistently adhered to all my life. Ho is wonderfully afraid, and protends through his Knoxville Whig to believe, that I am preparing the way to strike hands with the Radical par ty, anil there are men mean enough to pretend that they believe them."

I It will bo remembered that on Friday- last a man named Oziah Russell was drowned at the foot of Broad street by driving his horse, with an express wagon attached too far into the river. Since then the most vigilant search was kept up with grappling hooks, drags, etc., up and down the stream. io trace or sign of the drowned man was discovered until Sunday afUmoon, when tie horse and wagon were lound near Hickman s i cm, twenty-two miles down the Cumberland river, where it had been washed by the swollen current. This was quite conclusive that the body had also been washed a considerable dis tance from the place where the accident occurred. The search was continued with renowod vigor, the father-in-law of the poor man offering a reward of fifty dollars as an additional incentive to the discovery of the body. The recovery of the remains of Dick Hill, who was drowned the Wednesday previous, which arose to the surface noar the suspension bridge, on Sunday evening, seemed1 to indicate that, tho remains of Russell would likely be found not a great way from the same locality- . .. . . Yesterday morning near i o clock, tno body of Uu S3il was found on the Nashvillo side of the river, near tho "Halfway House," a very considerable distance from where he was drowned. The remains were first discovered by Mr. Geo. Cameron, and were not far from the bank where they had" been drifted by tho waves. The body was considerably puffed and swollen, but was otherwise in a state of good preservitior. Coroner Brien was at once summoned and an inquest held, which elicited a verdict in accordance with tho facts and circum stancos. A common door key and a small ivojry handled knife were found in tho pataloons pocket, and $3.50 in money. A pocketbook was also found which had not been opened when we visited the Coroner's office, but which was supposed to contain papers, etc., relating to the private affairs ol tno deceased, xne ooay was conveyeu to the undertaker s establishment of Mr. Groomes on Cherry street, and prepared for interment This is the fourth casualty by drowning that we had to record lately, ami it is to be hoped that the frequency of such ovents will snperindnc3,a greater degree of caution on the part of those crossing or driving In proximity to tho watery element A Lively anil Successful Ciiuvc. Police officer Haslam yesterday had an oxciting chase- through South Market street, after a suspicions colored character. supposed to lie bmiUi uoocn, a convict who lately escaped from the penitentiary. Ex-policeman Allison, and a numbor of citizens, joined m tno pursuit, ana ino fleeing culpnt was unoiiy brougnt to a halt and captured. During tho run, he displayed a formidable looking pistol, and several times threatened to shoot tho3o nearest to him m the chaso. Tho arrest gave rise to the report that tha notorious Cad reruns nau been captnreti, anu tne rumor was extensively circulated through tho city. The man gives hi3 name as Charles Arnold, and aays he knows noth ing about Smith Gooth or any other man that escaped from the Fenitentiary. He was securely confined until his identity can be established, which will probably bo donoto-day. Alec Jones Committed. The negro man Alexander Jones, who on Saturday last committed a furious, and deadly assault on MelindaRodgers, colored, in South Nashville, was yesterday arraigned before Justice Uaskctte on the chargo of assault and battery with intent to commit murder in the first dagroe. The accused waived examination, and in default of ?.r, 000 bond for his appearance at the Criminal Court, was committed to jail.
