The recent Nihilist riots in St. Pe tersburg and Moscow have evoked public interest and curiosity about Nihilism. People want to know what it is and what kind of men the Nihil ists are. One who has given the subject much attention, describes Nihilism as a sort of a nickname given to Russian radi calism aud communism. It was first introduced some fifteen years ago by the celebrated novelist Tourgueneff, in his "Fathers and Son." Catching the spirit of the young generation as opposed to the old, he painted in his hero, the student Bazaroff, an imper sonation of all that the radical, social istic, and revolutionary ideas of East ern Europe had bred in Russia since 1848. Bazaroff repudiated everything society, law, religion, marriage; and he questioned even the principles of the sciences, except the positive ones, like astronomy, mathematics and chemistry. He believed in nothing Nihil hence the word Nihilist. Had Bazaroff and his followers been logical, they ought to have disbelieved in themselves and their theories too. But this did not strike their minds as a necessary consequence of their phil osophy. In the person of Bazaroff, Tour gueneff gave shape and consistency to the vague and diffuse ideas which then prevailed in the heads of many Rus sian young men. He made a solid thing of a loose one, and in so far, though himself a fierce opponent of Nihilism, he practically became its author. The cheap and noisy radicals and communists now had a written code. They began to think, speak act, and even dress like Bazaroff. Long hair, long, dirty nails, untidiness in costume, and gruff language became the highest fashion among the majori ty of Russian students. Saint Simon and Fourier, who after 1848, had been the high priests of Russian liberalism, were now declared miserable retro grades, for they had a religion, while true radicalism should have none. Socialism, which at all times in all its forms had professed some sort of the ology, or at least of theosophy, was thus transformed into the most primitive, brutal description of communism. The wildest communists of Paris aimed only at a revolution in the sys tem of government and in the rights of property, while the Nihilists aim at the overthow of the whole social fab ric They propose to make a clean sweep of everything, and build up a new community, free from all the trammels of existing laws, manners, habits, nnd ideas. As a matter of course, all means are right with such reformers, and a short Reign of Ter ror is considered as an inevitable pre amble to the great reform. The importance of this movement in Russia has been greatly exaggerated. The Nihilists are troublesome, but not dangerous. They have no regu lar organization except a kind of affil iation after the Carbonari style. Their ranks are composed of young men and women, mainly of the lower middle classes. University and seminary students constitute the predominating element There is hardly a person over 25 rears of age to be found among them, for even the most cuthu siastic radical has to give up this sort of business after a few years' exper ience. The intestine quarrels of the party, the evident unproductiveness of the work, and the constant danger of banishment to Siberia are sufficient to tire the most sanguine of these theo rists. It is the fault of the Czar's Govern it that Nihilism has attained its Had it been from the start met with ridicule instead of with severity, it would never have made any progress at all. A hose and a head of water applied to the public gatherings in which the Nihilists occa sionally indulge, would have done much more useful work than the po licemen's revolvets. The seriousness with which thev have been treated has riven them the chance of having he roes and martyrs, upon the memory of whom they live, thrive and mul tiply. It is not of the noisy and silly Nihilists that the Czar's Government should have been apprehensive, but of the more quiet republicans and social ists, who both in Russia and Germany make steady and rapid progress, who do not go for a general smash, but watch events, study them, and turn them invariably to the advantage of their party. They are to be found in j the legislatures, in the annv and navv, in the civil service, in all the learned institutions, as well as in the humblest workshop. These are the men who hold the future of both Russia and; Germany in their hands. Bismarck! has always understood this, and has created a semi-democratic German empire mainly for the sake of pre venting their making a federative German republic. But the Russian statesmen, have, it seems, not sense enouirh to see the real danger. Thev shoot in the streets and exile to Siltc- ria paltry conspirators, of whom none has cither intellectual or material means of doing harm ; while a really formidable oppoi-ition is left to grow and develop itself without the slight est attempt being made to lull it or compromise with it. v Fashion Notes. Vests increase in popularity. Young ladies are wearitig yoke waists. Faylan embroidery is something en tirely new. J ancv ruetai buttons trim rnanv Spring stiiu. Gentlenietr.s neckties are wider than heretofuie. A new design in mitts for summer wc:.4k lisle thread for the hand, with lace work begiunitig at the wrist and extending up to the elbow. Ashes of roses nnd golden brown are being revived this Spring. New chip bonnets are dipped in a solution of gold to make them yellow. A great deal of velvet promises to be used upon light fabrics this Spring. New lisle-thread stockings are iu bourette colors to match the dresses. Mantnleis are square in the back and have long, graceful ends in front. Bovs' out-door sacques reach the ankles, and are finished with Carrick capes. spring flowers, lilacs, daisies and narcissuses are among the new flowers shown. Bv command of fashion, wear vonr own likenesses on fans, bracelets, lock ets, etc. Cretonne curtains are popular for hed-rooms, with mantel lambrequins to match. Side pleatings show no signs of re tiring from favor as a popular style ot garniture. White pique waistcoats fastened with red or blue ball buttons will be worn by 3'oung ladies. Foulards are shown with polka spots, diamonds, Greek squares and other small figures. Rustic pocket-books made of springs of wood and clasped with silver are new and stvhsh. Get sheer musliu for petticoats, ns it retains starch better than that more closelv woven. The newest shoe buckles in Paris are like shawlpins and bear the name of the wearer. Don't wear roses or anv gav flower now ; pansies aud violets are the Lent en bouquet flowers. The Bvron collars and cuffs for la dies arc the latest; those in guipure embroidery are the prettiest. Chinese fringes, tied in the edge or hem of the garment are seen on some of the new Spring wraps. Straw bonnets in shades to match toilets are in vogue among exclusive classes of French women. There is a war between high and low coillures, but both fashions require much additional hair. Fashion will still adhere to the use of two fabrics in a dress, and varieties of goods will be combined. An artificial ivv leaf is now the proper thing to present to a gentleman for a button-hole bououet. Princesse dresses are made with plain round or square trains, but profusely trimmed up the front. Fashionable ladies are reviving the old custom of piecing quilts. But in stead of calico and delaine, which their grand mothers used, they employ silk and velvet. Cutaway jackets, with short skirts were originally introduced for school girls, but ladies of a larger growth have also adopted them, and they have made them popular. A suggestion which mothers mav be glad to adopt is to baste a pioce of needlework on the bottom of children's cloaks ; this takes the place of a white dress on the street, and it is far more easy to do up. A princess polonaise is the best de sign for a black velvet overdress. It would also be very handsome with a basque and long princess train of the velvet, and a silk apron gathered in the front breadths of the skirt. present proportions.

He loved hid pretty pet, and Iim love grew deep and strong as he grew into tnauhood. Madge was pio-.id of Arnold, but her love was wounded when at Christmas she saw him !o lover-like in hU intention to the haughty Miss Haldeu, who spent the holi days with friends in Brighten burg. Cecil Ward was careful that Madge should hear of all the compliments Arnold Brighton paid the beautiful heiress, for he was madly in love with pretty Madge, nnd be lieving that all strategies are fair in love as in war, was ready to utilize any ad vantage chance might give him over bin rival. Both Madge and Arnold were proud and high spirited once make each jealous of the other, and the game could be easiU managed. Cecil Ward was a most devoted lover,and understood each move he made in the game. Madge was unsuspecting and jealouy made her blind. She deter mined to forget Arnold and make him be Iieve her love uad been but a fancy that I had faded with her childhood. The.-c was no quarrel between them but a studied in diflereiice on the part of Madge, which as the weeks passed on made them only pleas ant acquaintance, and yet iu the heart of each lived the old love. Cecil Ward was very h ppy hi work of estrangement had iucceedel, and now he had only to make a fonud otter ot his han! and fortune, aud be fell sure Madge would name an early day for their bndal. In early priug, on a charming afternoon, he propoed a liive iu the country, a diive. in .in oieii buggy to Wi low creek -nd bacK hy the lake. Madge was nnuually pretty iu her new spring stiU. aud Cecil found the declaration of hi love-in eay matter, for late he thought smiled upon him. The prairies were covered with grass aud flcckf' with gay llowers that swung iu the tireezes, and loved with bird .ind buiteiDicx that dahcd their bright hues in the warm Minlight, while the trees aiidnhrubs marking me wauling of Ihe creek in litedi.-luiice w an immense, garland of siimaiT rues, and beyond the blue sky, bent aud piled white clouds to mark the enchanted circle ol vi.-ion. As they ueared the creek the scene dunged, the ro-es in the garland were per xoiiitied, and the plum trees were wrapped in their suawy sails, and the re. I buJ or wild mc1i, their attendnl maidens, ar rayed in all the roc tiub-; while the willows, elm and oaks, and les important per sounges, were attired in every shade of greet and adorned with trailing vines aud sprays ot gay colors. The breeze was laden with sweet jierfume and the waters sung merrily as they glided on to the river. The horses stepped into the waters, and when the rip ples were up to their knees they stopped to drink. Tlie moment was eventful. Madge held up her hands aud begged to drive through the water. Cecil gave her the rein anil bent foiwanl to kiss the little band that he hoped soon to call his own. The kiss startled her and she jerked the lines the hores sprang forward and Cecil lol his balance. Ttiere was an impromptu somersault at the rear end of the buggy, a fearlul splashing in the walr, a little sere m, a .d the frightened horses d-odicd forward with Madge helplesty holding to the reins. Fortunately as the hoie bounded up the slope on to the prairie, a man on horseback galloied to her rescue, that man wa Arnold Brighton. Cecil Ward llonndered a-hore and in hi excheracnl rushed forward to see if his horses weie sife. He was not improved iu Klx)ii:il appearance when he stood liefure them ban-beaded and dripping likea water nymph, but Arnold Brighton had never looked handi'ouier, anil Madge thought no hero had ever been braver. There was uothins tn be done but for Arnold to drive back w:th Madge, while C cil, on Arnold's horse, took the nearest wy home. The drive by the lake gave time for many ex planations. Miss Waldron was1 the atE a need bride of Arnold's college chum, so the lovers quarrel was ended. When autumn tinges the trees on Yellow creek with crimson and gold, Mr. and Mrs. Brighton often drive out to admire the iieautiful stream, but sensible man that he is, he always holds the reiiu in his own hands.

They have had nearly one hundred men, the last two weeks, removing every defective, tie, and replacing new solid oak much closer, rais ing and leveling the track and putting on new steel rails, making this one of the most substantial and smoothest road beds in the State. It will take a month or more to complete the work in the vicinity of Green Ridge. It is soon known when the right kind of managers have charge of a road, as with the M., K & T. at this time. It has been a subject of general remark, how orderly and quiet the men are; nothing unbecoming gentlemen ; everything moves like clock work, except when the train Hears the dining car a general stampede takes place. No fortre could resist the onslaught. May the M., K. & T. reap the rich harvest she so justly merits. There were shipped from this point, last month, four cars of oats, five of hay, ten ot corn, six of hngi ami ten of caitle. Hd the markets been better a much larger num ber of each would hare been shipped. The latest news is eagerly sought after on the E-istern question. No doubt more men would tie ruined by over speculation thin would he benefited bv the advanced prices, should there be an Eastern war.

The A valanche of to-morrow will contain the following from its correspondent at Tiptonville. Tenn. : Hon. Henry M. Daroull. Jr., of Pemiscot county. Mo., was decoyed from his home across tlie river into Lake county, Tenn., the evening of April 27, and brutally murdered. The perpetrator of this foul crime gave his name as William Shearer, and claims to have been raised near Cave-in-the-Rock. on the Ohio river. Shearer has been Dar uall's tenant since Dec. 1, 1877, until a week ago, when he crossed the river into Tennessee, and in three days wrote Darnall he was almost dead with hemorrhage of the lungs, and requested him to come over into Ten nessee and let him have bis money, with which to go home and die. Dar nall crossed the river, and just as. he got upon the bank Shearer fired at him with a double-barrel shotgun through the window. The shot took effect in Darnalls right side, breaking his arm near the shoulder and wrist. He fell down a low bank and was attempting to rise when Shearer ran out and fired the other barrel, the shot taking effect in Darnall's head, killing him instantly. Shearer made his escape to the northern part of the county, where he was overtaken the next day by a Sheriff's posse and ordered to surrender, but he tried to escajie and was fired upon and killed. He confessed while partially under the influence ot morphine, before he ditd, he had been hired to kill Dar nall, but remarked to the physician in attendance that if he was out of it 810,000 could not induce him to do it again. Darnall was a member of the last General Assembly of Missouri, and was esteemed for his uutiring a ww a energies and anilities, lie leaves a young and devoted wife, who is threatened with insanity since his death. An attempt has been made. be it said to the shame of some of Lake county's most prominent citizens, to instigate a criminal prosecution against members of the posse who shot and captured the demon who mur dered Darnall. The correspondent was not able to b arn whether deceased had any connection with the Darnall feud, which had such a notorious finale last fall, in the oldest one in the (family riding over a Court, with half a hundred carbines behind him, in Lake county. Mr. Darnall was a farmer in the county named, married, and aged about thirty four years. He was a Democrat, elected as such, and served on the Immigration Committee of the House. Quiet and retiring, he was yet independent, and had no enemies on the floor.

The Russians Hunt a Wo man. A Revolution In Mexico. The Fsscs Question. London. May 4. Notwithstanding the hopeful news of Russian conces sion, announced from Vienna and in timated from St. Petersburg, it can not be said there is any positive change in the question in dispute. The said conciliatory disposition has prevailed in the councils of the St. Petersburg government, but it is asked what Rus sia considers at this moment to be peaceful concessions or conciliatory proposals. A fresh attempt to reach antinderstanding isdescribed as getting over difficulties of form bv makinsr far-reaching concessions on the merits if the question, but the misfortune seems to be that wnat the Kussians considers a question of principle. Eng-. laud demands the placing of the treaty of San Stefano before the congress for unreserved discussion. Russia, it is said, refuses to give way on that point. In Berlin, as iu London, the subject is treated with skepticism, as long as it is known that Russia refuses to yield on the chief point snd thst England maintains her demand. The Mysterious Steamer. London, May 4. The Timet, com menting on the appearance in United States waters of the steamship Cam bria with Russian officers and men on board, says there are good reasons why we should regard proceedings of this kind without alarm, the chief one is that the United States government, which has always prided itself on ful filling its neutralities, has been placed tinder special obligations in this re spect by the Washington treaty. Br virtue of its rules we were condemned to pay a fine of 3.000,000 for depre dations committed by Alabama aud her consorts, aud the United States, hy accepting that fine, have further pledged themselves to observe on their own part the new rules of the treaty. It was a penalty to the United States at the time, but we have the advan tage ?f an additional protection. We may be confident that the United States accepted it, it will live ap to its ooiigauons in mis respect, ana tne Russians will consequently f od it dim- cult to execute what they appear to have planned. Conciliatory Appoimsaet. St. Petersburg; May 4. Consider able political importance is sttscbed here to the appointment of Prince Labanoff Russian ambassador to thw Porte. The choice is agreeable to the Porte on account of the favorable im pression he made during his former tenure of office as Rueswn ambassador of the Crimean war.
