According to a report published in Berlin, an Austrian naval division has left Trieste with 10,000 troops, with the intention of occupying Antivari Dulcigno and San Giovanni di Medua and advancing against Cettinje. The Strassberger Post asserts that the German emperor has received a telegram saying the Austrians hatfe already entered Montenegro. This probably is premature, but little doubt is now felt that Aus tria is determined to move aloue unless the ambassadorial conference at London on Monday resolves upon European ac tion. Cettinje. April 27 Hssad Pasha, the de fender of £< atari, who surrendered the town to the Montenegrins and was per mitted to 'depart with his troops has pro claimed himself king of Albania at Lessio. Rome, Via Chiasso. Switzerland. April 27.—The Italian government has placed a ban on all references to demonstration In favor of Montenegro. Recently stu dents in Rome displayed enthusiasm over the last Montenegrin victory and ad dressed Queen Helena as the daughter of King Nicholas. This information was not permitted to he sent out of the country over the telegraph lines. The present attitude of the Italian gov ernment brines out emphatically the dramatic situation in Italy. While a ma jority of the people, by reason of senti ment, tradition and a common bond of nationality, applaud the Balkan successes and condemn what they term “the over bearing action of Austria.” the Italian government for reasons of state and be cause of the pledges of the triple alli ance, is obliged to co-operate with the ad ministration at Vienna. Tn this way the royal family, with its close connections with the Montenegrin sovereign, is placed in a most embarrassing position, which has aroused sympathy. Paris, April 27.—The Duke of Mottpen sier. in a letter to a member of his fam ily. announces that he has formally re solved to decline the throne of Albania, because if he accepted, he would lose the two titles lie was proudest of—French citi zen and a French prince. London. April 28.—A Balkan correspon dent of the Times thinks the occupation of Albania tyy the powers may become necessary. According to the Vienna correspondent of the Times. Austria is prepared to wait until Wednesday or Thursday for the powers' reply. The Russian ambassador has made verbal representations to the Austrian government, deprecating pre cipitate action and pointing out that the powers have not yet exhausted their means of pressure and iiersuaslon on Montenegro. The Sofia correspondent of the Times comments on the difficulty about who should replace the Montenegrins when they are compelled to retire from Scutari. He says it is assumed that either Essad Pasha and his army must be recalled or the town occupied by detachments from the international fleet. Both these alter natives, he adds, will lead to great dif ficulties.

The flood will reach a height of five feet there, It is expected. At G o’clock the water could be seen approaching Water proof, several miles away, and a foot of water Is expected during the night. The water Is rising at the rate of one foot an hour. It will be four or five days before the flood reaches Vidalia. the nearest large town south of the break. A protection levee cuts off the town from the lowlands in the rear, and Vidalia may escape without injury. Large fields of cotton, corn and oats will be inundated and the crops de stroyed. The cotton and corn crops promised to be the finest in this section In years, and the flood will result in the loss of millions of dollars from this source alone. Cotton May Be Failure Columbus, O., April 27.—Officials of the National Red Cross at their headquar ters in this city are keeping in close touch with the flood situation along the low'cr Mississippi river. Speaking of the break at the Lake St. John levee, 12 miles north of Ferrlday, La., Ernest P. Brioknell, national direc tor. said tonight that unless the water goes out by May 35, the cotton crop, which is the principal product in the in undated sections, will he a failure. Be cause of the losses sustained during the flood one year ago Mr. Blcknell said the planters and small farmers arc wholly unprepared to endure additional losses now certain to follow. “The Red U’ross, as far as possible, will meet this new demand upon its re lief funds.” he said. “All committees and communities holding funds not yet trans mitted to the Red Cross are urged to forward them at once in order that the total amount which is to be available for relief work may be known.” The Mind in Infancy Richard Steele in the Tatler. The mind in infancy is, methlnks. like the body in embryo, and receives im pressions so forcible that they are a? hard to be removed by reason as any mark with which a child is born is to be taken away by any future applica tion. We that are very old are* better able to remember things which befell us in our distant youth than the passages of our later days. For this reason It is that the companions of my strong and vigorous years present themselves more immediately to me in this office of sor row. Untimely and unhappy deaths are what we are most apt to lament ; so lit tle are we able to make it indifferent when a thing happens, though we know it must happen. Thus we groan under life, and bewail those who are relieved from It. Every object that returns to Jour imagination raises different pas j sions, according to the circumstances of their departure. Who can have lived in an army, and in a serious hour reflect upon the many gay and agreeable men tlicit might long have flourished in the arts of peace, and not join with the im precations of the fatherless and widow on the tyrant to whose ambition they fell sacrifices? Rut gallant men who are cut off by the sword move rather our veneration than our pity; and wc gather relief enough from their own contempt of death to make that no evil which was approached with so much cheerfulness and attended with so much honor. But when we turn our thoughts from the great parts of life on such occasions, and instead of lamenting those who stood ready to give death to those from whom they had the fortune to receive it—I say, when we let our thought wander from such noble ob jects, and consider the havoc which is made among the tender and innocent, pity enters with an unmixed softness and possesses all our souls at once.
