A Discovery Made of Consider able Importance In the Boundary Disputo Between Great Britain and Venezuela. The Whole Truth Appears to IIixvo Horn Withheld ly Lord ballnbury, lint the United Stilton linn the Document A llrltlsh Cnbluot bucrct to Llfht. Washington, Doc. 31. In tho last few days tho stato department has made a discovery of considerable im portance in tho Venezuela boundary dispute. Tills official document dem onstrates that England had no idea of claiming1 a largo part of Venezuela un til Schomburgk'H scientific explora tions had disclosed tho great wealth of the region, and that alio then deter mined to make exorbitant claims. Sir Ilobcrt Schomburgk was appoint ed in November) 1810, special commis sioner for surveying tho boundaries of British Guiana. In submitting tho maps of his sur vey on which ho indicated tho line which ho would propose to her ma jesty's government for adoption, Sir Robert Schomburgk called attention to tho fact that her majesty's government might justly claim tho whole 'basin of tho Cuyuni and Yurarl on the ground that the natural boundary of the cStony- Included any territory through which flow rivers which fall into the Ksscquibo, and thus approach tho very heart of Venezuelan Guiana. Hut on grounds of complaisance to ward Venezuela ho proposed that Great Britain should consent to sur render her claim to a more extended frontier inland in return for the formal recognition of her right to Point liarima. It was on this principle that ho drew tho boundary lino which has since been called by his name. Tho newly discovetcd document consists, of a letter from Viscount Lcv cson (afterward Earl Granville), Brit ish, under secietary of state for foreign affairs, to Sir James Stevens, perma nent tinder secretary for tho colonies, written under instructions from Lord Palinerston, secrotary of foreign af fairs, for tho guidance of Lord John Ilusscll, secretary for war and colo nies. This letter shows exactly what 'went on inside tho British cabiuot at that time. Tho note is in part, us fol lows: Sir: I am directed by Viscount Palmcrston to acknowledge tlio recolpt of your letter ot tho 0th Inst. With refeionco to that pirt of jour lot ter In which you stato that Lord John Russell considers it to bo Important that tho bounds of llrltlsh Guiana should bo as certained and aKrccd upon, and that Mr. Schotnburgk's researches havo qualllled hlra in a manner to be of Uso should tho services of any porson acquainted with tho geography of Uiitlsh Guiana bo required for fixing this boundary of tho British toi rltory, I am to stato to you that the courao of proceeding which Lord l'almorston would sug gest for tho consideration of Lord John ltus sell is that a map of llrltlsh Guiana should bo mado out according to tho boundaries discov ered by Mr. Schomburgk, that tho said map should bo accompanied by a memoir, dotnillng the natural forces which dellno and constitute tho bounds in question, and that copies of that map and momolr should bo ,dellcrcd to tho governments of Vene zuela, of Brazil and of the Nether lands as a statement of tho llrltlsh claim, that in tho mcmulillo British commissioners should bo sent to erect landmarks on tho ground in order to mark out tho lino ot bound ary so claimed bv Great Ilrltaln It would thc.i rest with each of tho three governments above monlioccd to m ike any objection which thoy might havo to bring forward against tho bounds and to state tho tcasons upon which such objections might bo foundoJ. mid hor majesty's government would then glvo such nnswcis.theicto ns might appear proper and just. Lnrd'Pitlmerston further considers that it would be oxpedient that tho Brazilian detach ment should bo required to withdraw from 11 rara, and that tho ofllcor in command bhould bo informed that any cl lim which Jirazil may imagine luclf to havo to that village should bo sUted liv tho Brazilian government to that ol Great IJrluiu, In order that It may ha dis cussed between the tuo governments.

Four of tho Fairest Young Maidens Spared in the Massacro To Mnke an Acceptable Present to tho Sul tan This Aroused the Armenian I'enplo f2eto a I'renry The Armeiilnn Itcltef Asuoclntion Itonsts the rowers- New Yoiik, Doc. 31. Recent lotters tolling of the massacre in various Ar menian cities contain certain informa tion that helps to explain many points in the awful outbreaking of the so cillod Mahometan fanaticism. A let ter from Trehizond says: Bahri Pasha, governor of Vanshd, started to come to Constantinople, and it was learned that ho was bringing with him four -of the fairest young maidens of Sassoun, who had been spared in tho massacre, to make an acceptable present of them to his Sultan. This aroused tho Ar menian people of Trcbizond to a frenzy, and it was impossible to re strain tho young men, tho more dar ing of whom fired uyoif Bahri Pasha, wounding him. But he carried out his mission to Constantinople, and was honored with tho highest dec oration and appointed governor of Adana. Afterward tho pasha of Trebi zond, calling 12 of tho leading men of tho city, commanded that they should hand over tho young men who at tacked tho governor, and gavo them just a few hours in which to carry out ills order. Tho next day they answered him that tho government had no means of finding the men out. Then the mails had arrived and peo plo went toward the post ofiice, tho trump, t was sounded three times, and both tho soldiers and tho mob rushed upon tho people. And this we know is only one and not even tho most terri ble of the massacres. In view of the revelations as to the actual political conditions in Kuropo influencing tho fato of tho Armenian people in Turkey, tho Armenian relief association in New York Monday ca bled, the following message to the Lon don Times and Dailv News: Europe pushed Armenia into tho mouth of hell and turned to celebrate Christmas. If the continental powers are dead to honor and conscience, can England forget justice'.' Docs she not believe in Almighty Clod that she waits for help bofore stopping the wholesale assassination of Christian ministers and their flocks and the ravishing of maidens? We send 1,0)0 pounds to Grosvonor houso committee. But what avails food when lire nnd sword exter minate? Shall we advise Armenians to apostatize? Surely the wr.ith of God and tho blessing of the Christ have still a significance for the men of England. Does she no more expect them to do their duty? Christian America will support England. I.
