Trlbuno We gladly give place to tho following beautifully worded letter from Uen. Albert Pike to Dr. Thurs ton, of Van Uuren, and rcceitedby tho latter tho day before he died: Wabuikotoh, September J, isss. itu Venrt'st una Uesl and Truert Old 1'iieiul: 1 havelust received yourlovlng message, sent to me Uy Mr. Sandela. I bad already two daya ago learned from our old friend Cuali, who hid the Information from James Stewart, that you were aliout to ga away from ua. lu a little while I shall follow you, and It will bo well for too It I can look forward to the departure, Inevitable for all, with tho name pa tience and equanimity with which you aro walling fer It. 1 do not bellevo that our Intellect aud Individuality cease to be when the vitality of the body ends. I have a profound conviction, the only real revelation, which to me makes absolute certainty, that theru Is a Supremo Deity, tho Intelligence and Lord of the uulverac, to whoui It la not folly to pray. That our convictions come from Win, audio them He does not lletoordccclvous; aud that there la to bo for my very self another, a continued life, In which this life, will bona If It never had been, bull shall ace and know again those whom I have loved aud lost here. You have led an upright, harmless, ant blameless life, always doing good, and not wrong and evil. You have enjoyed the harmless pleasures of life and have never w earled of It, nor thuught It bad not been a life worth living. Therefore you need not fear to mt et whatever Ilea beyond the veil. Either there la no Clod, or there la ajjust and mer ciful Hod, who will deal gently and tenderly with the human creatures whom He bus mado ao weak aud to Imperfect. There la nothing In the future for you to fear, as there la nothing lu the vast to be ashamed of, since I have been compelled by tho lengthening of the evening shadows to look forward tu mr own nearly approaching departure, I do not feel that I lose the friends who go away before ine. It Is as If they had set aall across tho Atlautlu Sea to laud lu au un known country beyond, whither 1 aoou ahail follow lo meet them agalu. Hut, dear old friend, I shall feel very louely after you are gone. Wo have been friends ao long, with out n moment'! Intermission, without even ono little cloud or shadow of unklnduess or suspicion coming between us, that I shall inlsa you terribly. I shall never have the heart to visit Van Hurcn agalu. There are others whom I like there, but noue mi dear to me as you nono there or anywhere else. Ai long as I live I shall remember with loving atfec. lon your waya and looka and words, our glad daya ptsapd together lu the woods, your many acta of klndueaa, me old home and the shade of tbotnulbor rlea, audan Intlmato couimuulou and Intercourse, durlug more than forly-dve years. I hoped to be with you once more In the woods, but now I shall never bo in camp in the woods again. The old friends are nearly all goue; you are going sooner than 1 to meet them. 1 shall live a little longer, with little left to live for, loving your mem ory, uud loving the wife and daughter who have liM'ii ao dear to i ou. Dear, dear old friend, good bye I Mar our Father who la lu heaven have you lu Ills holy keeping and give you eternal rest. De votedly your friend. ALIIk'Kr I'ixb.

(National Press Intelligence Company's Utter Nitw Y'ork, October II, ISSS. Newspaper quarrels have their principal Interest for those who pattlclpato In them. Tho general public takes no special Interest Inn contest or the purely l'lckwlcklau order, but would bo delighted at a show to see a personal encounter of the namo par lief. Tho long-continued war of words between Mr. Whltclaw Held, of tho Ti-lbune, and Mr. fleorge Jones, of tho Timet, has been of moro general Inter est ns Involving politics to Homo cxlcm. Somo rather tudo epithets havo been hurled from Unto to time, but tho climax was reached yesterday, when the Times called Mr. Held a sneak ami a liar. All this would bo unworthy of notice but for tho fact mat mo quarrel of tho two editors brlnis about the singular anomaly of tho two leading papers of the nepuuuean party supporting the same ticket on very oppoalto grounds, and each denouncing tho other dally for Its politics! Hubert could hardly havo devised a more absurd situation than this. Hut n great many curious thing, happen In" politics and journalism. Even when the Journalist fights with some other than a journalist tho contest Is curious In his con dttct and conclusion. And generally I rind that tho Journalist conquers If ho doet not voluntarily surrender, and sunn I know of htwa way of sur rendering and conquering too. Lately Mr. Keep, ot the H'nH Street .Veto, attacked Western Union, Man hattan Hallway, and Wabash management ao severely that Jaynould.aslhnminagcrofthcsororporatlons, hadthreo several suits brought against Keep In a criminal court. Keep plucklly mado aahow of light, and Insisted on tho production ot the otllccrsand books ot the companies In court, asserting he would prove all he had sal.l to bo tmo. One of the cases was half tried when flould stopped short noverto go ahead with the other sulta. Keep also stopped his attacks on flould'a property, and only tho other day Washington c. Conner, Air. Jay (Mould's very bright and diplomatic partner, was seen In Wall street arm In arm with ltrothcr Keep!

Foley, who well represented the lleratil lu washlngton.wasmoronan cdltorof tho swrnlnv Jounuit, later ot Vi-nlh, (In Its dying moments,) and now managing editor ot tho rweorcipi. Clould has had some sort ot connection with nlmost every news paper man In tho city from tlmo to time, and I d not know ot any who persistently fought him ex cept Mr. .Tones, of tho Times. I have received the following letter relative to the little romance of life assurance based upon tho ex perience or Mrs. l. with tho Mutual Life Com pany of this olty, a, told In your columns two Sun days ago. It Is from an Indignant Uwycr, whose effort to get a free advertisement I remorselessly set down upon by omitting his name and the num ber otitis office: La w opfick or , NKW Y okk, October IT, 13S5. Xattnnal Press tntelllgeuee Company, Xo. SO vlmrch blreet, City : Sins: Mrs. L , wtiose aad experlenco' you most unwarrantably mentioned last week, Is greatly agitated over tho InJustlllaMe and libelous allusions to her husband and to tho manner of his death. Sho requires the withdrawal of tho latter statement in tolo, and demands the mime of jour Informant In the Llfo Insurance company, for, as you very well know, It was not from nitlcers of tho Mutual Life that you recetved your Information. A reply as to what course you will pursue will decide mo h to that which I must take at once. Yours, clc. The lady's narao la given lu full, as well as that ot the company In which sho is said to havo Insured her huaband's life. I have found that thcrowas such a Mrs. L , but the story I told had no ref erence to this lawyer's Mrs. L , but to rfhothcr, and the Insurance was effected, as stated, In the Mutual Life, and not In that ot tho company he names. My Information did not originally canio from tho Mutual Company, but I sought confirmation of it on receipt of this letter; anJ I reply now thit, whllo the Initial of both names Is tho same, tho names arc entirely different, and tho company al luded to by mo was tho Mntual, aud not that named by this lawyer. It would bo a singular coincidence, Indeed, If the names and circumstances In these two cases were ao nearly Identical as this letter would Indicate. Another curious Incident connected with thissamcatoryistoldbyanofrlcerot IhoMutualLlfe. A gentleman resident In Washington scut tho stmy as published by you to an agent of the Mntual Life In Harrisburg, suggesting that It be transmitted to the company, and expressing satisfaction at the po sition taken by tho company In defending Its Insur ers against " legal sharks," and "especially In the case of our dear friend, Mrs. L ," (naming still a third widow!) "though It Is a pity tho circum stances of the Captain's death were published, n9 they have been carefully concealed from tho widow." I began to be a little curious ai to the percentage of Insured persons who die from light excesses in drinking. , Speaking of "legal sharps," I am minded to say that there other classes ot these who prey on others than life Insurance companies and their pol'cy. holders. They appear In regular schools ot tho big gest Vludof Usli In disputed will cases. Under our laws both lite successful and unsuccessful lawyers get their allowan:cs out of tho disputed estate, and they seldom i let go as long av'thcro Is anything to take. Tho steamship companies are another class which Biitrcrs from tbe shyster lawyers. They get discharged sailors to mako complaints of Ill-U9agn or money demands against oiltccrs or owners ot vessels, libel them Just as they are about to sail, and exact their false claim from the owner, the detention of whoso ship would be Injurious. I know of a firm, one ot which Is a member of tho State Assembly, which docs little else than this sort of blackmailing. Every tlmo a man Is Injured on a street or other railway a half dozen lawyers offer to take bis claim on shares. Tho same victim U also beset by tho lawyers ot the company to settlo before seeing another lawyer. And when the lawyers of tho com pany cannot settlo and a suit ensues tho Jury-fixer is called In to provide a Jury to giro nominal dam ages, or to supply witnesses to prove pcradventure that It was the Injured nian'a own fault that his limb was cut off, and that tho company deserves Infinite credit bocause his life was sparodt Thcro Is a caso of thlt sort now ponding In which Chauncey Shairer, tho lawyer, tells mo be Intends to expose Just such practices of Jury-llxcrtand corporation lawyers by pointing ont the rascals lucoutt, I hopo ho will. There are plenty of them. Manrlco Vlgnaux, the billiard player, is the latest sensation In sporting circles. The altendancrwhcn ever he plays Is fully as great aa It was on his first appearance in this couuiry. Ills grace In playing does not diminish with his Increasing years, and his skill Is greater than crer before. Some years ago I was present at a tournament at which Vlgnaux waa to play with somo very poor player, and then with Itudolph, the expert, who believed ho could play better than he really could. At the begin ning of the Urst game Vlgnaux Uld not remoto his coat until bo had becomed warmed up. Itudolph noting this, said In his broken English, " Wall till tuea play lieeni. Mea maka heem taU his a-cnatee oil." Vlgnnux asked a friend what Itudolph hail aald, and smiled when told, When It came to his turn to play itudolph Vlgnaux carefully buttoued his Prlnco Albert closely ubout him ami rau tho game out without rcmovlug tho coat. Then he turned to Itudolph aud said In I'rcuch, You make mo take my coat off, eh T" 1 fancy that In spltoof Vlguaux'a Increased ago our best players will fiod It ditncult to make him take his coat off. My surmise ot last week that Miss Mary Ander son's manager had mado a double blander In pre senting her In a play too nuo to be appreciated, and at pricca too steep for that public's purse, has been fully confirmed aa correct. On Monday night she had ouly half a house, and thcro were no speculators In front of tho door hawking tickets at nne-orth their cost. It has been tho same way ctery night this week, and will he until Miss Anderson Is presented In something more human and less witty thau" As YoiiLlkult." (sliothouj produce "Itomeouud Juliet "now It would draw, although the stage set ting could not but comparo unfavorably with that at tho Union Square; end to follow Miss Mather lu the part of Juliet would bo to give tbe former a certain prcstlgoand placoMlss Anderson In an uwkwurd position. Out It could not be ono moro unpleasant for her manager than that which be now occupies with losing business on band aud a probablo lota of prettlgo for tbe rest of his tour. I fear that u llttlo prosperity hath mado Mlaj An derson's personal manager and step parent, Dr. Hamilton (Iflttlu, mad, I was tailing with him Monday eveulng about the sharp criticisms which Miss, Andcrsou as llosallnd hadvcncouutcrod( and he said he did not care to read or, ti preaervo such ankles or to talk about (bent. I suggested that the adverse crltlclsmt wero tho pnes he ought tq study, so as lo counteract them, He said llfo was too short to fret about such thtogt. I argued that (let ting wat not the way lo meet thorn that it was wis dom to study adverse criticism In order to counter act It. Ho said he known! no way to counteract adv erso criticism, at he bad no paper to answer tho critics In. I suggested that discussion of criticisms with the authors of the articles was hardly an ef fectual way to meet criticism, and that (Uo proper method, to my mind, wat to avoid criticism by re moving tho objectionable features ot a performance, upou which Mr.Orinju astonished mo by laying that wo arc lu a position to bo ludlUercnt to what Is saldot ua. If business Isbadlu auy clly, we shall tlmply not appeat mere again, and It It Is bi 1 lu all the cities wo visit, we vm simply retire" I could not but think this a remarkable pslilou for a caterer . WASHINGTON, SUNDAY MORNING, OOTOBKR 2ft. 1885. to tho public to assnmontlhc beginning of along tour. There Is no question that the support ot Miss An dersonbyan English company has done her somo Injury In the first place, it Is remarkably bad. It is painfully amateurish. And Its only vlrtne Is lhat It Is cheap. I can Imagine no olhcr reason why Mr. Abbey or Miss Anderson should Import It. I don't tako much stock In tho Idea that pooplo stay away from tho Star because ot national prejudices. If J, M. Hill had been disposed ho could havo played this dodge very effectively In behalf of Miss Mather, bnt for some reason ho his not dono so, although Miss Anderson's Imported stock gavo hlra a Ono opportu nity. I know of a third actress In whoso bobalt such a scheme was devised, tho Intention being to play her In nltowcry house and arouso somo na tional enthusiasm in her behalf, but her own per versity put a stop to tho matter. Miss Mario Prescott tells mo that sho has written a book, stilt In msnuscrlpt, which mo bo entitled, "My Tour with Bilvlnl," nod composed principally of Incidents occurring during tho two years sho sup ported him In this country. Of course a very large space Is devoted to the Ideas ami opinions which Slgnor Salvlnl expressed of his art and ot tho pro fession In this country. Miss Prescott was one of the Tew members ot his company with whom Salvlnl conld hold conversation In his own tongue, and henco much of bis time wasBpent during tho long railway trips In Miss Prcscoll's company. She has translated tho portions nt the book devoted to the conversations of Salvlnl and submitted them lo him; In fact, ho Is engaged In revlewlngthem now. After ho has finished and npproved the book will bo given to the publisher. Miss Prescolt did not say who the latter would bo. Miss Prcscotl, by Iho way, appears Irt "A Moral Crlmo" at Washington on Monday night, and will doubtless repeat thcro the my positive triumph she mado In the pleco during Its Bcvcn weeks' run in this city, WllUAUF. U. StltSKH. mm ..... - POLITICAL POINTS. Reviewing tho disgraceful records ot both parties In Ohio, Iho Pittsburg Despatch (Ind) says: "The need of both parties for a crushing and' decisive defeat warrants tho hope that Hooncr or later n new parly will arise which will !n able to admlolsler that required discipline to bolli of them at once." Kx-Congrcsaman Creamer, ot Iho Citizen, thinks there ts.a rising of the Democrat Ictlde In New York. He says: "Tho same kind of feeling prevails In the Empire Slate that of old wss felt previous to great Democratic Mctorlen. 'Ihe Hood of Democracy Is rising, and will In two or three weeks hence sweep all botoro It. For every Mugwump who goes back to his Idols nscoro of honest Irish Dtalue admirers will fall Into line." "If machine, leaders Imagine," Bsys tho Uoston Ailivrtlser, (Ind. Rep,) "becanso Air. Davenport and Governor Robinson nrc likely to win back Ihe support of voters who were alienated last year, that Independent action Is at un end, they arc lu error. Independence us an element lu our politics hatcomo toslsy. Tho higher order ot statesmen will not regret It. Tho machine mado statesmen will have good reason to do bo." Tbe Washington correspondent of tho Uoston Journal sends tho following rather curious state ment: "The report Is current that tho President is greatly disappointed and much annoyed at the fact that postmaster Pearann, of New York, an oillcer whom ho nomlnatedasthercwardofthe Independent vote In thatsuie, has announced himself In favor of the candidacy of Davenport. Itnppearsthatalthongh the President and the Cabinet nitlcers use various agencies to declare themselves for the Hill ticket, It is regarded ns unseemly for Postmaster Pearson and Naval Officer Hurt to express their political preferences. The Philadelphia Times (lud. Dem ) tliusaccounts for the defeat In Ohio: " Hud Ooiernor Hoadly been smitten with malaria this year and scut to Philadel phia for treatment as ho was two years ago, the Democrats might havo been able tore-elect him; but with all Ids brilliant powers lis a public, disputant he lurried tho tldo against himself when his success seemed assured. Ho forgot that Democrats had convictions, and he forced thousands or Democruts to tho Prohibition ticket by his Ill-judged and need less assaults npon that cause, as Is conclusively shown by reduced Democratic vote where the Prohi bition vote has boen Increased." The First Assistant Postmaster General appears to bo regarded by Democrats throughout the country as tho model pubjc oillcer. Such compliments as the following from the Shelbyvlllo fehocivit are not uncommon : " A. E. Stevenson, tho First Assist ant Postmaster General, will be rlflv years old the Mlh of October. Wo suggest to tho Democrats over at Washington that they remind this Jackson Demo crat of the fact by surprising him with a big dinner, it which Vice President Hendricks will preside. At such a dinner and on Biich an occasion thetoist, 'Turn the rascals nut,' could be respouded to with equal grace by cither Hendricks or Ktevi-nson. This paper wishes Mr. Stevcnsnua long life: It wants to sec him live to be one hundred years old, nod In all of this time It wants to sen him directing lu some way iheulTtiirsof Ihe Government. Ho Is a Demo crat, and mat tells tho whole storv." "Senator McPhcrson told mo yesterday," writes Crawford to the iroi'M, " of au experience ho had had with tho New York Cuslom-IIouso peoplo. From this It would appear that the Custoni-House In New York'ls raph)ly taking Its cue from tho way the public Departments here are being conducted. Mr McPherson said that there are employed In tho State of New Jersey, under tbe control of tho New York Custom-House, one hundred and Ofty Inspectors of customs. He went to Mr. nedden and asked him If he could have any of theae places for some good and faithful New Jersey Democrats. Mr. llcdden re ferred him to Mr. liealtle, saying that theso appoint ments came In his department. Mr. llcuttie said that no changes would, be made except whero charges wero preferred. Tho benator replied that every ono of the insnectors of customs In Nhw Jersey had been most offensive and etllclent parti sans. A complete caso could be lusde out against each one of them, and it would be done If AI r. llcaljlo cuuju ussuru uiui mai ciiaiigcs woum no inane aner cases were made out. Atr. lleattle replied In a loud and emphatlu tono of voice : I will not change men who are partisans. I don't caro how ollenslvo they have been, It they aro good men otherwise. Idont cure how partisan they may have been, It Is no busi ness of nilue.' Mr. Mcpherson then asked him It there should bo vacancies through death or resigna tion how be would till them. Would ho uppolnt Democrats npon his recommendation and Indorse ment? 'No.1 said Air. lleattle. ' I will not annolnt any man Inspector who cannot pass Iho civil service cjisuiiuaiiuu, uuu mib men nppoiuicu Hjiau oe taken from the top of tbe list of the men passed, without any one's asking what aro their .polities.' " THE NAVAL ACADEMY. ANNit-oLis, MP., October, "3, 1353. Naval Cadet Ralph Bailey was to-day dismissed from the Naval Academy for hazing. Cadet Frcderlo Fitch, of Colorado, was couit martlaled for a similar offenso and found guilty. i no Bupenuieuicui, uowever, unapproved the mul ing, in the opinion cftho Superintendent the evi dence before the court does not prove tbe specifica tions, and the accused Is not proved gulllyof iho charge. In not approving the finding uud recom ineiidatlonof lhecourttheSuicrlntendcut expressed his astonishment at the evidence given by certain witnesses.

Doth bands tooted until the crowd began to disperse, hoot ing and Jeering at tho combatants. For noise and discord tho African band waa awarded tho premium. Senator Sherman Bpoko for about an hour. The purity ot the ballot was tbe principal theme of his discourse. He declared that every national election since ISM bad been tainted with fraud and ter rorism, nnd asserted that last year, by unlawful combination and fraud, Grover Cleveland had been elected President or the United states, when. If there had been a ralr vote and a fair rount, James (1. lllalne would havo been elected. The speaker dwelt at some length on the recent elections In Ohio, and charged Ihe Democrats with perpetrating frauds against the purity of the ballot. He believed that Congress should pass a wise law to govern the election the election of Members of Congress and Presidential electors, and If such a measure failed to protect tho negroes In their right ot suffrage then tho Republican party would take care that the Southern States wero not allowed a representation based on their negro citizens.

Certificates of election were Issued yesterday, though It was not generally known until this afternoon.

AI.UANV, N.Y.,Oct. m.-Probably ten thousand people witnessed the great single scull race for $l,ooo a aide at Pleasure Island thla afternoon between Edward Hanlan, of Torouto, and John II. Teemer, of McKeesport, Pa. Tho weather and water were nearly perfect There was a three-foot freshet In the river, however, which rendered It hard work for the oarsmen golug to the etako-boat. The race was three miles with a turn. In the belting Hanlan v, as a hot favorite, and many privato wagers wero laid on him at odds ot loo to DO and SO. In tho pools sold on the Island Just before tho start the Canadian had first choice at fj;) to f 15 uud $30, even after Teemer had won the toss for choice of position. Teemer selected the Inside position, which was a cnnsldera- uio uuvauiage. At 4:30 tho men wero ordered out by Refcreo James F. Oruioud,of Uoston. At seven minutes be fore nve the word was given. Roth men were In dne condition. Hanlan got a trlflo tho best of the start, rowing 3a to Teemer's 94 strokes to the minute. Passing the boat-housa on the Island an eighth of a mile from the start, Hanlan had the nose ol his boat In front, but was glauclng nervously over to his rlval.as though ho feared him. The race was decided before tho scullers had gone half a mile. Soon after leaving tbe quarter-mile point Teemer by grand work drew upon bis rival and took the lead, which he never after surrendered. Three qnarters of a mile from the start Hanlan was an open length astern of Teemer, and was taking his wash. Teemer Increased his lead to the stake-boat, which he reached three or four lengths In advance. Ue turned at 11 :3i 1-5, and Hanlan 1 1 seconds later. Ilanlan's shell fouled tho state boat and upset and the oarsman was thrown Into the water, lie was rescued by the people on the Judges' boat, who righted It and replaced Hanlan tu It. Hanlan Bays tbe collision with Ihe stake boat vvas caused by the strong current. Teemer rowed leisurely home, stopping twice while opposite Iho island to throw kisses to the spectators and to dip up w uter from tbe river with his hanJs. He was wildly cheered as he passed the Island. Hanlan rowed dawn fifteen lulu, utcs later. The official time was si:is. A few minutes after Hanlan hod retired to his quarters an Associated Press representative called to sco htm. A great crowd hod congregated, und tho police had difficulty In keeping tho throng bock. Lee and Plalsted were with film, aud tho reporter propounded this question: "Mr. Hanlan, what do you think of Air. Teemer now?" Hanltn was plac ing an clas'.lj on bis magnificently formed leg, and, on looking up befrajtd signs of unusual emotion. His eyes weie moist as with tears, and hut voice trembling. He said : " I urn glad to lie defeated by a tuan like Teemer, but I don't Ute the Idea of fall ing on, my boat," " What would have beeu tho re sult had you steered safely ?" " Opinions on results differ," he replied: "l think I could havo won on the home-stretch.'' Teenier, lu response to repotted calls, mounted tho roof ot hit boat-liouto aud said: " Gentlemen, I rowed this race to win, aud havo done so. l shall endeavor to do likewise hereafter. That U all 1 have to say." A very largo amouut of money chauged bauds ou the race, and Iho I'lttsburgers, who were here lu full force, weut home hilarious uud with pockets well lined. i JOHNSON AND GRANT.

""iT'od this evening from Constant! nople indicate that England will tako a decided stand against the position announced for Germany, K2.1? !' ""I'.1 An"r, by Emperor Francis Joseph' positive utterances. Thopiiwera have accepted the Forte s invitation to attend a conference to-day at the Turkish capital npon tho Balkan question, and their represenbitlves are all npon the ground. It Is to-night stated that the representative ot England has ticen Instructed by his government to mate a motion In the conferenco In favor of maintaining the union of UnJgarla nnd Koumella effected nnder Prlnco AlcxAnrtcr. nnd It Is further declared that ha representatives of rranco and Italy have beon instructed by their governments to Bnpport Eng land's motion. If this motion bo made, tho confer ence will bo divined. Germany, Austria, and Russia arrayed against England, Franco, and Italy. It Is sirongly suspected that England possesses such rela tions with tho Porto ns to compel It eventually to sldo ngtlnst ltussi.1, nnd It that Is accomplished tho difficulty wonld seem to bo settled.

Every soldier Is being supplied with a pair of heavy marching boots, sixteen thonsand Servian soldiers are already massed on tho frontier, ready to cross at a moment's notice. King Alllan, the Servian ruler, In a note to Italy explaining tho military movements In the kingdom, declares, however, that It is his intention to scrupulously adhere to the terms of the treaty of Renin and await the result ot the Constantinople conference. Air. Colcmnn Macaulcy, on behalf of tho Indian government, hns obtained permission. from China to open up Thibet to Indian trade, lie reports the present Grand Llama of Thlbethas always been will ing to allow this concession, but has been prevented from granting It by the government of Pekln. China's present consent must bo accepted as the greatest Indication of the many she has recently given the world of her determination to pursue a progressive polico In the western sense. Despatches from Paris this evening show lhat the French people aro being again excited by their newspapers against the government's disastrous colonial enterprise!. The military organization take a particularly gloomy view ot the French situ ation In both Tonquln and Madagascar. The AlV'S' rc'clne to the wholesale massacre of Christians tnTenqnln, exclaims: "Thla butchery 1 a disgrace to our protectorate." The Progres iftlt fa f re states that tho government Is sending to Ton quln ten men per regiment to replace those French, soldiers lost In the mlserablo country by massacre, and declares Its opinion that the end of the whole French military cnterprlso la China will be a dis graceful retreat. It Is stated semt-ofllclally that the government Is bo thoroughly disgusted with tho uutcoino ot M. Ferry's military enterprises that It has determined to leave the decision of the contlnn unce or abandonment nf tho Invasion ot Madagas car to iho Chamber of Deputies. Pnnco Bonaparte (Plon-Plon) lias Issued another manifesto to bis followers. He Bays that at present the AInnarchlsts are powerless to either secure tha government of Franca or lo overthrow the republic. They are determined, however, he says, to precipi tate the state or revolution, toward which he de clares the country Is drifting. "The Radicals are unable," continues that raanifeato, " to govern with out tho support of tho Opportunists, and a govern ment bo managed must cud In dissolution. Only a strong, persevcrlng.and united executive can assure the stability of tho republic, which must either re form or perish." For these reasons the Prince urges all good citizens to unite In upholding tho republic T!! ,'.0ll0mn8 story about AI. Brlsson, president of tho Council of Ministers, Is being circulated. A maglstrsto at Sanlzls, being dismissed from office by Urlsson, appealed to the Premier's mother to in tercede for the magistrate's reinstatement.

"He stUl." wrote Alndamo Brlsson, " holds himself a stranger toward us. to our great grief. He allowed his father to die without visiting him, and, although he attended hi father's funeral, ho totally Ignored all the other members of Ihe family."
