For hundreds of years tho Muscovite empire was the most sluggish body poli tic knowu on earth. Somewhere within its boundaries was located the Scythia which figures in ancient Roman his tory. At a tune when Poland was « bright, particular star in the Fiuropeau firmament-it was a great outrage aud a source of endless disturbance that it was ever erased—the Dukes of Muscovy were insignificant oreatures, whoso oc casional contests with the Sublime Porte scarcely ruffled the surface of tho European annals. At all stages, in which Christianity was menaced by a Moslem invasion, Great and Little Russia counted for nothing. Tho great victory of Lepanto owed uothiug to Russian co operation, while it was Johu Sobiesky, of Poland, who raised the siege of Vienna and reduced Islam to a purely local proposition. Yet, notwithstanding the early isola tion of Russia, the world has seen the empire of the Tzar multiplying with wondrous rapidity until, with the excep tion of his Celestial majesty, the Uncle of the Suu and Cousin of the Moon, that potentate numbers more subjects than any sovereign or nationality on earth, unless the Queen of England and Empress of India be added. The mighty Russian empire of to-day is a mere amorphous moss, with the centripetal Sclavic impulse strongly developed, but with so many centrifugal forces at work for its destruction that a war with Ger many, for instance, would probably re sult in its destruction. Russia has probably been the scene of more infamies of misgovermnent than any other equal section of the world's surface. The singular succession of brutes and blackguards, and of Messa liuas, when the rulers of the country have been women, who have disgraced Russian history, was not even paralleled in th* history of the last days of the Roman nation. The infamous chroni cles which could be given of tho mines of Siberia are simply unique ami sui generis as to all ages ami nations. Yet, in the worst days of Russia, it could be said, with truth, that the auto crats of that vast region were personally valiant. From Ivan the Terrible to the present Alexander the Third there has been no poltroon in the long array of tyrants, who have played with millions of mankind as ministrant puppets to their arrogance. The telegraph, the other day, convey ed the intelligence to the world that the imperial poltroon, who shrouds his cow ardly carcass in the supposed invulnera ble precincts of the Fortress of Gats china, has postponed his coronation for a year, on account of his mortal dread of the Nihilists who, he thinks, and per haps justly, will blow him up, ut some stage of the ostentatious programme. No such humiliating concession of abject fear was ever made, in the previous his tory of the world, by a sovereign, unless the Roman Emperor Heliogabulus is the exception. That infamous exemplar of the decay of old Rome built himself a palace surmounted by n gallery inclosed with mirrors, so that he might bo warn ed of the first approach of an assassin. He forgot, in so doing, that thereby he multiplied his death a hundred fold, and that the same poltroonery which dictated these precautions left him with out the manhood to encounter and repel assailants. Alexander 111., of Russia, is substan tially in the same plight as Heliogabulus. He endeavors to make artificial buttress es give him, as a sovereign, the sense of ■ecurity which rightfully only attaches to a ruler who is beloved of his people. Dismissing this degenerate descendant of Peter the Great or Count Orlott', as the case may be, his practical imprison ment, while nominally at the head of an immense army, is suggestive of the ten dencies of modern development. That these are in the line of constitu tional government and freedom no man can doubt, in view of existing facts. Going back merely to the beginning of the cunent century, Alexander the First was able to dominate his people abso lutely. His successor, Nicholas, was even more autocratic, and even with less of challenge from the Russian masses. The late Alexander the Second was the first of the Romanoffs to encounter the opposition of his poorer subjects. The cause of the rights of peoples has undoubtedly progressed iv Russia with a tremendous momentum during the lost twenty years. The Russian peasant, having been transformed from a chattel into a man, is beginning to have a sense of his rights as a human being; and, from this class, as well as from the no bility, have sprung up the most energetic representatives of the modern idea. Thus far, in Russia, the assertion of human rights, being encountered by a repressive tyranny, has taken a crude form, especially in the case of the late Tzar, when the fulminate of mercury was nsed, as a protest, by his down trodden subjects. An ounce package of this substance did the business. It needed no cap or other agent, except simple percussion, in order to do its deadly work; and yet this insignificant package dug up a hole eight feet square around the exploded limbs of Alexander the Second. Chemistry has shown itself able to keep pace with tyranny; and the oppressors of the people of to day find no refuge, however environed. Russia, being a barbarous country at bottom, will find its history disgraced by assassinations for years to come; —in fact, until there is some recognition of the essential and inalienable rights of mankind. To complicate tho question for ty rants, it is asserted that the fulminate of silver has far more vigor than the fulmi nate of mercury; while the fulminate of gold is said to have such percussive and explosive energy that even an ounco package, dashed on the earth, will exca vate a hole large enough to enclose a big building. As a lesson from these facts, we may rightly say that the modern impulse, re inforced by scientific appliances, is to discourage tyranny and autocratic pre tensions. All that a sovereign needs to do nowadays is to lean to constitutional methods of government, and be ready to pack his carpet sack and to "step down and out" when the tune comes in which any given people desire to get rid of the nuisance of monarchical and Imperial government. Otherwise, amongst the barbarous peoples, the appliances of science will be resorted to as the only mid convenient solution of the modern problem. Sooner or later, and fur sooner than is generally behoved, the doctrines enunciated by Thomas JflfftV son will govern the world. There may be disgraceful incidents in tho evolution, but the evolution is inevitable. Elsewhere we republish, from the Sau Francisco Call, a vory carefully con sidered article on the rech.artering of the National banks. Tho lapse of the char ters of a large number of these institu tions, which will take place within tho next twelvemonth, raises an issue of vital moment to the people of the United States. Waiving the question whether or no it is better to save the interest on some three hundred and fifty millions of dollars of United States liouds, by re placing National bunk notes by green backs, no reader of the newspapers can havo forgotten the unpatriotic perform ances of the National hauks at critical stages of our history, notably when the House of Representatives sought to issue a three per cent. bond. To block that wise and legitimate movement the Na tional banks started in to inaugurate a panic, and tLey only desisted from their malign intent when they had intimidat ed Congress into the issuance of a three and a half per cent. bond. There is nothing revolutionary in allowiug these banks to go out of existence as their charters lapse, replacing their issues, which Br* based on interest boaring bonds of the United States, by green backs, which bear interest. The whole system owed its origin to the pro found deference which the Republican party has shown, at every stage of its existence, to the capitalists of both this country and Europe. The present is the most extraordinary season known for years iv Los Angeles. A rainfall of sixty-one hundredths of an inch, in the last week of May, in a space of twenty-four hours, is something so nearly without precedent that one is obliged to fall back upon theoldest inhab itants to eucountor its like. As to this rainfall it is about the correct thing to say that its good and ill-effects about I balance each other. The other day we were advised by tele graph that water, in ample quantity, and at an outlay of over half a million dollars, had just been brought into Tombstone iron, the Huachuca mountains, by East ern capitalists. Now comes the intelli gence that the whole busiuess portion of Tombstone has been destroyed by lire. There would seem to be a logical and Ir remediable hiatus out there, which can't be filled up to the satisfaction of the or dinary individual. A New York Romance. Not long since a young lady of New York City took it into her head to get married without paternal consent. The youug man whom sho loved was object ed to by her father on the ground that ho was not well enough off, as far as this world's goods were concerned, to take care of his daughter, aud although he had never seen his intended son-in-law, he asserted that he was not competent to earn for her a respectable living. In spite of opposition, however, the wed ding took place at the time appointed, and it is needless to say that the father was not numbered among the guests. The young couple found a modest home in the neighborhood of the parental and still the irate father re fused to recognize them. But he was not of an unsociable nature, and he was noted for making acquaintances on the horse-cars on his way to and from business. It was not strange, therefore, that he entered into conversation with a sociable young man at his side ou his way home tho other evening, but it was a little surprising, as he was rather cau tious, that ho should have been so en tirely fascinated by the young man's re marks. "Why," he said, "you're a per son exactly after my own heart; you display in your words a remarkable bus iness tact, and are destined to be a rich man. If it is not an impertinent ques tion, who are you and what is your name ?" "1 am your son-in-law," quiet ly observed tho future Vanderbilt, as he motioned to the conductor to stop the car. The Largest Fort in the World. Fortress Monroe is the largest single fortification in the world. It has already cost over three millions of money. Tho water battery is considered to he one of the finest pieces of military construc tion in the world. Colonel Lodor, the instructor of the artillery school, has in vented and perfected some astonishing appliances, that, when we shall have guns, will be of immense valuo in hand ling them. In one of the casemates in side the fort is his office. He can sit in it and by an electric appliance, cause every gun in the fort to be fired simul taneously. He has perfected another set of instruments by which the exact distance of a ship from the shore may be accurately determined, the veloc city and direction of the wind, the con sequent deflection of the ball, and the precise point at which the ball will strike the ship. The funs are tired by elec tricity. A gentleman of Columbus, Ohio, says the Bohemian, of rather an eccentric turn, visited New York, and wandered one Sabbath into a fashionable church, and complacently seated himself in a va cant pew. Shortly a gentleman and his .vife came in and sat down in the same pew. The gentleman eyed the stranger critically for a few minutes, aud then wrote on the ny-leaf of his prayer-book, "My pew," and passed it over to the intruder. The Ohio man read it, smiled sweetly, and wrote under it, " " d nice pew. What did you pay for it?" The New Yorker learned that he was an Ohio man, and invited him to dinner. LAST NIGHT'S NEWS [Special to the Hekai.h by the Western Union Telegraph Company.] PACIFIC COAST. FIRE AT TOMBSTONE. The Business Portion of the City in Ashes. Nugget Newspaper Office Entirely Destroyed. Hotel*. All tjione *Lj»»m Hall' a Million. Tombstone, Mat 25th. A lire broke out in tbe rear of tbe Tivoli Gardens, on Allen street, this afternoon about halt past three o'elok ami immediately com municated to the surrounding struct ures. The ('rand Hotel and magnifi cent rooms of the Tombstone Club ad joined and were immediately enveloped in flames. The lire spread rapidly and soon the entire block between Toughujut and Allen streets and Third and Fourth streets were in flames. The fire depart ment fought the flames like heroes, but it was evident that the heart of tht city was doomed. The flames spread across Allsn street and destroyed the entire block to Fremont strcot and again crossed Fourth street, destroying the block bounded by Allen, Fremont, Third and Fourth streets. Here the tinea were conquered through the com bined aid of the firemen, police and dep uties under command of Sheriff liehan. The portion of the city destroyed com prised almost the entire business portion. The three principal hotels—the Grand, Cosmopolitan and Brown's —were re duced to ashes. The Nugget newspaper office was completely destroyed, not a type or a pound of stock being rescued from the flames. The lire spread de struction and desolation all around, but most of the people pluckily expressed their determination to commence to build immediately. The entiro city would have succumbed to the flames were it not for the herculean efforts of ■Sheriff Behan and deputies, Chief of Po lice Nagle and our gallant little Fire De partment. The Western Union Tele graph otlice was among the first to hug tho flames, but the manager, C. E. Don nelly, at the risk of his life, saved the records and instruments, and established another olfice in a distant quarter within an hour. It is impossible ut present to estimate the loss, perhaps, half a million dollars will cover it, but it certainly will not be less. The Epitaph office suffered a loss of some thing less than £1000, through the breakiug and wear of furniture and ma terial. This newspaper offered the use of all material not in actual use to the Nugget, but the loss of the latter was too complete to attempt an immediate resurrection. The insurance on the property destroyed will foot up about $250,000, but the loss will certainly double that. It will not affect the town, as most of the property destroyed was owned by solid business men who will immediately rebuild. A Long-Winded Apache with a Jaw-Breaking Xame Military Items. FoaT Thomas, A. T., May '23th.— Esdellesbelew, chief of the Coyotes Apaches, has visited Col. Albeit ('. Braekett, of the Third Cavalry, com manding this post, and made, iv sub stance, tho following statement: He wishes the government to allow his peo ple to go back Rod live at their old home iv the White Mountains, where there is plenty of grass and water for stock-raising and where they can farm. He complains that the sub-agency is un healthy and that the land is unproduct ive and uo water can be had there for farming purposes. All they desire is to be permitted to go where they can make a living, aud if they are allowed to re turn they will not ask the government for assistance of any kiud, as they can support themselves by farming; selling hay aud grain and wood to the garri sons. They yet have sonic stock not taken by the hostiles, which will enable them, in a few years, to have a sufficient number. Ho also stated that he wished the military to protect them from Americans, Mexicans and hostile In dians. The chief said he would like to havo the President send him a medal like the one Grant sent to his brother chief, Pedro. He desired that Major Randall or some other equally good officer should command them. Referring to the cause of the Chiricahua outbreak, he said it was caused by Agent Tiffany not assisting them to make wa ter ditches to irrigate their land. Two of the chiefs, Jab and Nelchise, weut, on two different occasions, to Tiffany, begging for his assistance in getting out the ditches, and that Tiffany would not reply or give them any satisfaction whatever. This is an important discov ery, as it undoubtedly discloses one of the causes, if not the principal cause, of the outbreak. A council has lately been held hy the two White Mountain tribes and the Siena Ancha and Arivapa tribes, in which this chief was considered the leading spirit, and his coming to hold council with Col. Brr-'-ett was at the re quest of the Indian > oil. He says, iv positive terms, thai they desire no as sistance from the government, but pro tection and the privilege to cultivate their own lands. This chief stated that he represented fifteen chiefs of different bauds of Apaches, who had sent him with their message, aud hence he spoke by authority. Thero are at present stationed at this post four troops, headquarters and the band of the Third Cavalry, one com pany of tho Twelfth Infantry; and, at tho sub post, at tho mouth of Ash Creek Canyon, thirty miles distant, are two companies of the Sixth Cavalry and one of the First Infantry, under com mand of Col. Schotield, all being under the command of Col. Braekett. All is quiet on the San Carlos. So far as known, the mountain passes are all guarded. PaaMcneer* Mouth and Knst.

Colton, deceased, has brought suit in the Superior Court against Leland Stanford, C. P. Hunting ton, Charles Crocker and Wells, Fargo & Co. The suit is instituted to sat aside a certain agreement made on the 2t7h of August, 1879, whereby Mrs. Colton agreed to assign to defendants, ns execu trix of deceased, certain stocks and bonds of several railroad und steamship corporations of the aggregate estimated value of 51,722,713.75. It is alleged that plaintiff mado the assignment through mistake as to the actual value of the bonds and stocks; that the considera tion for such assignment was the agreo meat of the defendants that they would cancel a promissory note for one million dollars made by deceased and that they would pay certain other debts. The plaintiff asks for an accounting of the value of the stocks and bonds and for a judgment against defendants for divi dends and interest ou the same now due tho estate. AsMcssineiil Levied.

General Abe Buford Thinks a Chris tian May Race Horses. A new question as to the boundary line of Christian amusements is raised among the church people of Kentucky, tieueral Abe Buford, of this State, who was recently convertod at a revival meeting, has declared it to be his opin ion that Christians may with advantage attend horse races. He regards the racing of horses as not merely permissi ble but desirable. These sentiments aro the opposite of those which have gen erally prey ailed in the churches. Horse races have been considered bad enter tainments to go to, and calculated to demoralize those who go. There are some religious fraternities which would withdraw the right hand of fellowship from those who persist in attending races. In a Methodist church in the State of New York a member rendered himself obnoxious to his brethren by va rious illegal misdeeds, one of -which was going to horse races. They turned him out, shortly after while another church took him in. Perhaps it may be well for the churches to look into the matter of making one horse go faster than another horse and see if there is anything actually sinful iv it. They might discover that the sin which is sup posed to attach to racing lies chiefly in Letting and gambling and drinking, which are said to prevail in connection with the competitive speeding of that noble tjuudruped, the horse. As for the horse himself, he never bets nor gambles nor gets drunk. He does his level best and the sight of him as he does it ought to be an incentive to wholesome ambi tion. Many of our best church people go to agricultural fairs which are in many respects pretty much the same as horse races. It would be interesting to know how much less godly a horse raco is than a church fair with grab-bags and ratHos for large cakes, or an oyster stew served in the namo of Christian charity with ono lonely oyster floating iv it. Many good Christian people dance and play billiards and croquet, and do things which other Christions equally pious consider worldly. Some eminent Chris tians go to the stock board and the pro duco exchange, which aro quite as worldly. The exact degree of the wordliness or godly advantage of the horse race will probably soon be decided by some of Brother Buford's fellow church members in Kentucky. A Twice Married Couple. They're always doing something queer iv tho marriage line out West. The latest story of that description is told as follows by the Now York Sun: On Thursday, April 27, there was a mar riage of more than usual interest in Madisonville, Kentucky. About five years ago Mr. E. L. Hendricks, then a citizen of that place, was secretly mar ried in New Albany to Miss Maria B. Morton, a well-known belle of Madison ville and of Southwest Kentucky. Hen dricks took the first train west and Miss Morton returned home. One friend only knew of tho marriage, and he held the marriage certificate lockod up in his safe. The plan was for Hendricks to make sufficient to support a wife, and then to have preparations made for a wedding on a grand scale, and the officiating minister, instead of beginning tho mar riage ceremony, should produce the certificate and announce, to the amaze ment of the parents, friends and all the company, that the couple had been mar ried for years. The plan was not car ried out. At the end of three years, for some reasons known only to the parties themselves, a divorce was obtained. This, of course, made the matter public. Up to this time not even the parents themselves dreamed that their daughter was married. And now, two years after the divorce, Mr. Hendricks and Misa Morton are married over again. The reconciliation was accomplished by let ter, and on Thursday of last week the groom went on from St. Louis. The meeting and the now marriage were graphic, and can better be imagined •an described. Miss Morton, having reecntU been confirmed into the tpis copal Church, the marriage was accord ing to the ancient rites of that Church, and was performed by tho Rev. R, S. Barrett, of Henderson. This time the happy groom bore his fair bride away to his western home. An Orthodox Parrot. [CMetffe Letter. | W hen the Rev. George Miln was pas tor of Cußy church he took a fancy to purchase a parrot, After purchasing a one bird and placing it in aia study, he uas horrified to discover that upon" the entrance of each caller the bird would shriek: "Damn the hook agent ! Damn tho book agent!" On this Oceania* several times in one day, to his great mortification and ohagrin, he returned the parrot to the store and expostulated With the proprietor for putting so pro fane a bird upon him. Imagine his sur prise ami dismay on then being-informed that the parrot had formerly been the property of Rev. Dr. Kith-ridge, pastor of the Third Presbyterian Church here.

A dog was fed for six- days upon bread made with a baking powder that had muriate of ammonia for one of its ingredients. (This is one*of the kind advertised as "a pure cream of tartar baking powder.") The dog seemed to get on pretty well, and continued to catch three jackass rabbits daily—his customary allowance—besides howling most of the night when any of his mas ter's neighbors were sick and particu larly nervous. He slept well when any one was calling him to chase tho pigs out of the garden, and his digestion of what he could steal from a butcher's shop was unimpaired. Altogether he was a hearty dog. But when he was told about the ammonia in tho baking powder that made his bread, he lay down and turned over on his.back, dropped his lower jaw, and was gath ered to his father's. Tho ammonia didn't hurt him any, but the knowledge that he had been eating it broke him all up. When the manufacturers of that baking powder meet that dog at the judgment seat there will be a race, and the man will he ahead. NEW TO-DAY.
