INTENSE EXCITEMENT AT MOSCOW FEARED ANCIENT CAPITAL OF -RUSSIA MAY BE SCENE OF BLOODY EXCESSES. St. Petersburg, Dec. 29.It is evi dent from the reports received from the interior that the fairly good im pression produced from the imperial manifesto on the subject of reforms may be more than offset in many places by the effect of the government note of warning to the zemstvos. Private reports from Moscow es pecially indicate that much excite ment prevails there and the gravest fears are expressed that the ancient capital of Russia, may be the scene of bloody excesses. A banquet arranged to/take place there on the anniversary of the Troubotzsker revolution was stopped by order of the police and the Moscow zemstvo adjourned sine die as a protest against the government note and the return of Grand Duke Sergius, the governor, general of Mos cow. The grand duke is held to be responsible for the note which may Signal a renewal of terrorism. The Pskoft* zemstvo has also fol lowed the lead of those or Cheinigoii and Moscow and it is not unlikely that others will follow their example. Altogether the moment is considered critical, although the feeling in St. Pe tersburg is quieter. The papers are not disposed to re gard the injunction to retrain from discussing political matters. Under cover of commenting on the manifesto, which they really accept in a spirit of hopefulness, they do not hesitate to point out the vagueness of its terms and the lack of guarantees. The con servative liberals fear that a continu ation of "this course, especially if ac companied by a renewal of revolution ary. activity, will compel repressive measures, jeopardize a realization the fruits of the victory gained anc place the moderate liberals in a false position.

E Craven, cousin of the Earl of Craven, son-in law of Mr. and Mrs.. Bradley-Martin, formerly of New York, has been sen tenced to twenty-one days in" jail for a brutal assault on a fellow passenger on a train. The man, while entering a crowded car, bumped against Mr. Craven's knee with his gripsack. Mr. Craven offensively demanded an apol ogy and upon receiving a .refusal struck the plaintiff in the face. Mr. Craven then loudly proclaimed himself "a gentleman whose name would be found in Debrett and a cousin of' the Earl-of Craven." The plaintiff de clared that Mr. Craven's conduct was not that of a gentleman, whereupon Mr. Craven dealt him a violent blow on the nose, drawing blood profusely. The magistrate, in sending Mr. Craven to jail, characterized the assault as "most unjustifiable and most black guardly, for which a' fine was quite inadequate." WITH THE UNITED STATES.
