Agent. uScastor, AprU 26.-E.gl. and Telegraph copy. War hi Eubope. A writer iu the New York Tribune, unuWAite London, July 15th ult., aays: At bat the Rmaians have entered the Principalities. The harvest had begun a bout the 20th of June. On the 3d of July, tho first, corps of the invading army, about 12,000, crossed tho Pruth, to be re-inforcpd subsequently by another corps of about 13, 000 men. Bnt far greater n:asra of troops aro marching to the frontier. The prepar ations of Rusaia are on a larger scale than before the Hungarian campaign, in which 190,000 men were aent out of tho country. The Czar has issued a proclamation appeal ing to the fanaticism of the Greek Church, and charging the inoffensive Sultan, the Khalir, the head of the Mussulman religion, with perfidious perjury. This proclama ion was not known in Constantinople when the last post left that capital but it is easy to ... . ... , m predict that the '.runts, anu an uie niiieniu- aiMi hp re the Russians, at Ihe last solemn procession of the Czar to the Church of St. luauc, im plored him to lead them on a boly crusade to St. Sophia, at Constantinople, win oo re echoed from the Dosphorus. Yet the ex changes and tho diplomatists of Europe cling tocvery trifling incident which can afford a hope of mninlaining peace. When the news of the occupation reached Constantinople, and it was known that the Russians had real ly crossed the fronli'-r, the Ambussudors ol Emrknd. France and Austria went to the Sultan, requesting him not to take the inva sion for a casus Mli, itnd not to summon the Ueeta to the capital. The biiltaii reluctant ly accepted tho advice tiiking it for a sign that, after all, he cannot rely upon England and France, and will have to carry on the war unsupported by the Western Powers. The influence of Lord Stratford has accord ingly materially declined. Iu the mean time secret negotiations have been carried on at London, and proportions made to tho Czar, without the know ledge of the Sultan, about the terms under which the combined powers are re any to tnuke a set tlement. But the conduct of Baron Bruck, the Austrian Ambassador at Constantino ple, becomes daily more suspicious. He of fered tho good oliices of Austria, bnt at the same time he once more insisted upon the cession of the Suttorina and Kleck, the two strips of Turkish territory intersecting the contintiily of the Austrian possessions on the Adriatic, which had been refused to Count Leiningen. .While such negotiations aro going on at London and Constantinople, Russian em missaries are preparing an outbreak in Ser via against Prince Alexander Karageorgc wich, and it is hinted in the papers advocat ingthe Russian interest, that an occupation ofServiamay follow the invasion of the principalities, and Austria has in fact sent two regiments to the fortress nf Peterwar dien, close to the frontier ofServia. The Turks, on the other Imnd, have succeeded from the port of Butoum, ou tho Black Sea, where their garrison has been considerably reinforced in stnusolitiir exeat quantities of arms and ammunition into the mountains of Circossia. A force of 80,000 men, too large for the defensive, has been assembled nt Erzeroum, which, if war is declared, can reach Shatnyl nnd his heroic mountaineers n ten tlnys. Tho preparations on both sides are enormous, the price ot arms nns suddenly risen in Constantinople some sixty per cent., but neither (Jcorgi'Law mr Col. Colt has taken advantage uf .this splendid opportunity. FrtEE Trade ano Direct Taxation. The New York Courier and Enquirer says: "That Jefferson Davis, in his late visit to thut city, proposed the summary abolition of tho entire revenue system, tho extincion of duties, the suppression of Custon Houses, and, more and worse than all, a sweeping dismissal of tho whole army of Custom House officers. He wanted no half-way re form, under the name of a judicious revenue tariff, but would be content with uollnng iMBthan nhsolute, unrestricted free trade." We are elad to boo any development of the policy ol the present uuminisirnuuiii uhu thin r.nminn- from one of Gen. Pierce's Cab inet, may be considered almost official, How wili the manufacturers and mechanics of the Northern and Middle States like the new policy! All duties are tobe abolished, and foteiifn fabrics are to be poured in upon us, to the ruin of our own laborers. . But the absurdity of Mr. Secretary Davis plan will nnncar in this, thut it must end in direct lax ntion, which a portion of the States in this Union could not possibly bear, now wouia Sir. Davis' own State tho poverty-stricken and reDiidiatintr State of Mississippi, like to bo called upon to pay three or four millions annually, to support the Government, in all its mud schemes of foreign conquest! We should like to see how direct taxation would he received bv the Democratic States of II- linois, Mississippi, Pennsylvania, Maryland Arkansas. Texas, &c, States wlncli can hardly pay their presont debts.. We hope President Pierce will recommend direct tax atiuii in his Message at the oponlng of Con gross. This would bring me sunjeci oeiorc t'.ie people in a tangible rliape,nnd give them n opportunity to be neuru on me buujlxi. National litleiliyvticer. ' SUOCKIUO MdSDEft II MlSBOUBI 7'V Tflt E."CPEHaj Of TBAVtLI0 the Pavama Murderer Burnt at the SUkt.Tbo negro Route. The passengers on the John L. man, says the Boonvllle Observer, belong- Stephens published s statement to show the ing to II. France, of Heath's creek, Pultis ; actual cost to a cabin passenger anjjunting eounty, Missouri, who murdered the wife of John Rains, living in tho same neighbor hood, was burned at the stake, in or near Georgetown, on the 13th - instant. The circumstances attending this murder, so far as we can learn, were aa follows: Tho negro man, aged nineteen or twenty, visited Mr. Rains' house on Sunday morn ing, the 3d of July, while Rains was absent at meeting, for the diabolical purpose ac cording to his confession of committing a rape upon the person of Mrs. Raim. The consequence was that this lady, within a few weeks of confinment, was brutally mur dered with a club;, the negro attempted to kill ber oldest boy, and fancied he had kill ed him, fearing as he said, ha would tell on hnn and two younger children wero sadly bruised, and thrown in a fence corner, be cause, aa the negro said, they annoyed him "by crying about their mother." When Rains returned home he found his wife dead, and his eldest boy so badly bruis- i e l that it was thought he could n t recover; but he distinctly told his father who it was hsd committed the outrage. This demon inhuman shape was Immediately, appre hended for trial, but the citizens took pos session o him to burn him immediately, and delay the execution only to ascertain the motives of such a villianous outrage. Tho negro at first said, as we understand, that it was not him who committed the mur der, but his brother; and next admitting his guilt, said he was instigated to the act by his young master. His young master was immediately taken into custody, but was released because the negro exculpated him from the charge, admitting that it grew out of his intention to commit a rape. The only excuse which can be offered for the awful retribution of burning this negro, is the nature of the offence, and the fre quent attempts of late years, of negroes to rape white women several instances of which have occurred in this country and the impression among the community that it required such an example to protect them from the (repetition of similar outrag es. The negru's crime was horrid indeed; but his punishment will be regarded by many as cruel, if not barbarous. Had it been a white man, instead of a ne gro, there is no doubt but what he would have shared a similar fate.' 'ITte jVegroe's Master ordered out of Ute Slate. Tho citizens ot Petts county having suspicion that tho negro was instigated to the perpetration of the deed by his mas. ter, or that he knew more of tho murder than had been disclosed, and iu considera tion of past offences, held a meeting on tho 13th inst.,and passed. the following resolu tions: ' ", R sotv(l, That Henry Franco and fam ily be notified to leave IVtlis county within ten days, and thut Win. trance be noti fied to leave ft at the same time. 7aoZt','That Henry France he unified to leave tho state within thirty days from this date. . llitolvcii, That we, the committee, guar antee s.ifely to himself and property for ten days provided he behaves himself as a following white man should and for tlie to fill 30 of crossing from Aspinwall to Panama, in the present execrable condition of the Cruces road, of which no description can convey, they say, a correct idea.

His challenge was soon accepted, and a bet of ten dollars made; when, pointing to the opposite aide of the river, he shrewdly ak ed: 'Is not that one siJe of the river I' 4 Ye' was the immediate answer. 'Agreed' aaid the man, 'and is not thi the other idef Yes' said the other. 'Then' said the man, 'pay me my ten dol lars, for by your own confession I have pro of presenting a pistol to Ins breast and de- . propriety, and every humanizing law of na- manding his money.

An American feinalo, colled by tho roinnutio name of Miss Kate Irvine, has commenced at Sheffield, in England, the arduous tusk of walking 800 miles In as many consecutive hours, for (it is said) a bet of 500. The lady pedestrian is de scribed to be about 30 years of age, tall, and of rather prepossessing appearance. Her carriage is remarkably erect. She wears the Bloomer costume a straw hat, a jacket of thin black material, a light vest, w ith bright buttons, a tunic silk skirt, and light boots. She started for the fir6t milo at six o'clock in the evening and accomplished it in 12j minutes.
