London, May 5. Tho following
letter appears In the Times:
Sir A rumor everywhere pre
vails that our miraculous premier.
in spite of his queen s proclauia-
mation of uculrality, intends, un
der cover ot "eare for British in
terests," to send tho English fleet
to the Baltic, or do some other feat
which shall compel Russia to de
clare war against England. Lat
terly the rumor has shifted from
the Baltie aud become still more
sinister on the eastern side of the
scene, where a feat is contemplat
ed that will force, not Russia only,
but all Europe to declare war
...niiiBt Tlil latter I have
come to know a an indisputable
fact in our present affairs ana
outlooks surely a grave oue. As
to British interests, there is none
visible or conceivable to me except
taking strict charge of our route
to India by Suez and Egypt, and
for the rest resolutely steering al
together clear of any copartnery
with tho Turk in regard to this or

anv other British interest what
ever. It should be felt by Eng.
land as a real ignomini to be con
nected with sucn a Turk at an.

ought to have a wish to 6ave him

him that has any hopo in it is even

airalnst Russia is uo more respecta

deepest ignorance, egotism, and
.iii-v untinnal Icalouslv. These
thlnirs I write not on hearsay, uni
on acuto knowledge, aud to all
frlouds of their country will ro-
mmmfltid immediate attention
to them, white thuro is yet tnno

The Grocer elves the following
information In regard to the cniiy
vegetables in the New1 York mar
ket t ' ,
"Among the first vegetables to
arrive In this market Is asparagus.
Our first supply comes from Cali
fornia, and 's shipped in tho ice
cars containing salmon. It brings
abont 75c. per btineh.'A little lat
er on we receive asparagus trom
Florida at $1 per bunch. Gradual
ly, as tho seasou advances, our
sources of supply work northward
to Savannah, Charleston, Norfolk,
until about tho first of May, when
tho product of tho New York mar
ket gardens begins to appear. Cali
fornia also has the honor of sup
plying us with tho first cauliflow
er, which Is shipped III me same
manner as asparagus, and is worth
when it first appears, about, 1 per
head. Among tho most prominent
of our January arrivals maybe
mentioned cucumbers and lettuce,
the first arrivals of both of which
wo receive from Massachusetts.
Tho first cucumbers to arrive are
big fellows measuring from twelve
to fourteen inches in length, and
bring some times as much as $2.50
each. About tho middle of June,
when tho season is at its height, a
cent a plcco is more than can be
realized by the New Jersey and
long Island product. Tho lettuce
comes also from the Boajon hot
houses aud Is worth (1 per dozen.
In May we begin to receive let! nee
from Long Island at half price.
Canada also contributes her part
towards supplviug us withluxu
rirs by sondiug down tho finest
rbtibord and mushrooms received
here. They are grown iu large

fit reatcr. Illinois Mar 15. lcs-
terday thero was perpetrated in
our midst a crime of such startling
niasmitudc as toelectrify the nerves
of our strongest citUens a crime
that hat no parallel in the history
of the State a poisoning case
which, In civil times, has no equal
iu effect nor proportions. Mxty
stalwart men were last uight wri
thing iu the throes of agony from
the effects of a deadly drug admin
istered to 1 hem surreptitiously by
some rile fiend, who was planning
their total destruction to satury a
solrlt of revenge.
Some time ago the miners be
came dissatisfied with I heir wages,
aud with a further rednctlou star
ing them in the face, they struck
in a bodv. aud were strengthened
in their eBuao by the miners or
Braidwood. Lasalle and other
mines. The Chicago, Wilmington
and Vermillion Coal Company, the
principal operators of this place,
immediate) v substituted the places
of 'the strikers with new men. who
aro technically called " blaajtlegt "
by the miners. The company erec
ted lance buildings which to
keep the uew men, and although
there was Uo loslstunce oflercd by
the old hands, yet a strong force
of special police from Chicago
were placed around the buildings
and shafts to protect them. So far
as could bo seen, no trouble was
After duo time and reconsidera
tion, tho old miners offered to re-
sumo work on the company's terms
if accepted iu a body. They wcro
all reinstated, andT everything
worked pleasantly until yesterday.
Thero wero some who wont to
work with great reluctance, yet,
tnnn I tiA fUtflriiifti hull All bfiGtl
am vu siw mmuv'hh"
adjusted, no trouble was anticipa
ted. Most of tho guards had been
withdrawn, and a great many of
tho " blacklcffs." finding It impos
slble to compete with practical
miners, became dissatisfied and
left. Everything had resumed its
normal condition about tho mines.
About ono hundred "blacklegs"
still remained, and tho old miners
and these wcro at liberty to go
throiiL'h the mines at pleasure
Yesterday, some wretch, lost to
all the dtetatcs of humanity, took
ulvnntaire of this newly acquired
liberty, aud poisoned the food or
tho "blacklegs." How It was
dono is a mystery that at present
cannot bo solved. Tho miners
tako their dinners with them down
into tho mines, and their buckets
are kept with them in tho shall
room where they work, and tho
belief is that their food was pois
oned while they woro at work.
One of the "blacklegs" who
was more fortunato than tho rest,
at one time during tho forenoon
called attention to tho fact that tho
old minors, wero unusually lively
that morning. Nothing was sus
pected, however, until about two
o'clock, wheu twenty miners wero
brought to tho surface, suffering
all tho tortures of that deadly
drug, arsenic. Physicians woro
immediately summoned. who did
nit thev could to alleviate tho con
dition of tho suffering men, aud
everything possible was providod
for their comfort by tho otneors oi
the company. At four o'clock tho
number had swelled to sixty.
The description of their head
auaTtcrs. which now serves the
part of a hospital, Is most sickcti-
Inir in its details. Tho mou were
brought from the pit aud placed on
their cots in tho same condition
they wero working, coal dust com
nletelv hidiBB their features. The
effect of the drug, whleh hadboen
too bountifully furnished in many
cases, produced vomiting. In this
tho writhing victims lay. Tho
stench was such as to turn the
strongest stomach. Good nurses
were provided and their condition
bettered as soon as possible At
the present writing thero are sevon
or eight whose lives are despaired
of. Tho lives of several are tho't
to bo out of danger, and tho re
mainder, which constitutes the
lanror bodv. have a focblo hold on
life. It is thought by our physi
cians that Inflammation will im
mediately sot in. and the culmina
tion of the affair will be death In

- "I havo long been satisfied that
all that is necessary to bring' about
a complete recouclllatlou and har
mony between the pcoplo of the
North aud South, Is that tho mass
es of both should fully understand

An old woman, pious and God
fearing, was heard praying. In
her hiimblo petition she told tno
Lord that sho had nothing to cat.
Some mischievous boys heard her
prayer, and brought bread and
tn re w it down the chimney whilo
sho was yet on her knees. Going
into tho house while she was eat-
inir the bread, she called the atten
tion of the boys to tho evidence of
God's gooduess in his answer to
her prayers. They sought to show
her that she was mistaken, as they,
aud not God, had thrown the
bread down the chimney. "That
don't alter God s goodness," she
replied ; " God seut the bread, It
tho devil did bring it."
