War hi Eubope. A writer iu the New
York Tribune, unuWAite London, July 15th
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-
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
.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

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."

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: ' ",

An American Female Pedestrian in i
Enolanu. 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. Tho average time of each mile
varied from 12 to 13 minutes, which, for a
woman, may be considered really wonderful.
Nearly 300 persons paid a visit to the fleet
footed American on the first day. -
