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
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

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

have long, graceful ends in front.

White pique waistcoats fastened
with red or blue ball buttons will be
worn by 3'oung ladies.
Foulards are shown with polka spots,

small figures.
Rustic pocket-books made of springs

new and stvhsh.
Get sheer musliu for petticoats, ns it

The newest shoe buckles in Paris
are like shawlpins and bear the name

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.

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

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

Iieve her love uad been but a fancy that

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

beyond the blue sky, bent aud piled white
clouds to mark the enchanted circle ol

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

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.

excheracnl rushed forward to see if his

horse, took the nearest wy home. The
drive by the lake gave time for many ex

The Killing of Baraall.
Memphis, Tenn., May 3. 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 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.
The Prince is understood to favor
the amicable arrangement of existing
differences and is regarded as a man of
liberal views.
