apparently without pain. Mo event, short
of a coup d'etat or communist rising
could have created so profound an im
pression throughout France. Its effect
on the present political crisis canuot yet
be properly weighed, uauobetta is now
without a rival in the republican party,
bat his advanced views are so alarming
to theileft centre that the republican party
as a whole will probably seek to counteract
the evil effects of Theirs' removal by
putting forward Greuy, ex-president of
the Chamber of Deputies, as a candidate
for succession to the presidency in the
event of President MacMahon's retirement.
London, Sept. 4. A correspondent
telegraphs it would be impossible to convey
an idea of the grief and consternation
which prevails at the death of Theirs this
morning. 1 he news spread like wild-fire.
and even at an early hour, though the
weather is very inclement, the streets of
Pans were filled with people. In the
great excitement some were actually shed
ding tears and all giving vent to feelings
ot grief and apprehension, the death of
I heirs just now being regarded by all as
a national calamity. Theirs had been
staying for the last few months at Paval
lion Henri Quabre. St Germain en Lave.
and had caught a slight cold, but nothing
whicn led to the anticipation of death.
Another correspondent says his death
has made a deep impression in polit
ical circles. The Conservatives think it
assures them fuccess at the elections.
Great consternation prevails in the Re
London, Sept. 4. A Russian official
dispatch, dated Gorny Sluden, 7.35 this
morning, says Lovatz was yesterday car
ried by assault by the Russian troops un
der Generals Meretinsky and Skobeloff.
London, Sept. 4. The Times' leaders
yesterday and to-day show the Heedless
ness of the present war, its excessive cost
liness in men and money far outweighing
Us possibilities for good, and the danger of
eventual llussiau failure. From all of
which the Times concludes: ''The present
moment is propitious for intervention, and
Germany and England ought to take the
initiative to bring about a ruco."
Batotjm. Sept. 4. The Turks have
completely evacuated Sukem Kaleh.
London, Scot. 4. A correspondent at
Parelin telegraphs: "I rode over the bat
tle field of Peiisat. The Turks left very
few wounded and only about 300 dead on
the field. Iheir losses could be better
judged by the number of knapsacks with
which the ground was strewn in front ot
th? Russian trenches. Half way between
Peiisat and Zagalince the Turkish dead
were lyioe so close they might have shaken
hands with the Russians lying inside. It
was a desperate attack and a desperate re
sistance. Ihe attack seems to have been
well directed. It was made so suddenly
and violently that Jhe Russian redoubt
was taken almost by surprise. The first
time it was, io fact, taken almost before
General Zotoff knew the attack had begun.
It would have been much better for Gen,
Zotoff to have retreated and drawn the
Turks out into the open country, where
their ioaptoess at executing manoeuvers
on tne neid ol tattle would
have put them at a great disadvantage
with the well drilled Russian troops.
But Many Persons were Killed and the '
Loss ia Immense.
New York, Sept 4. The Evening Post
says the scene of the great fire at 35th
street and 10th avenue yesterday was,
this morning, a wilderness of ruins. The
burned area between 10th and 11th ave
nue extends from the middle of the block
on north side of 34th street, to the middle
of the block on the north Bide of 36th St.
In addition to this a number of buildings
were gutted er damaged, on the west
side of 10th avenue. - The ruins resemble
those of the burned town, blackened walls
stick and stand at irregular intervals of
space between the covered piles of bricks
and fragments. Iron, large and small, is
twisted and warped out of all resemblance
to the original beams, girders and ma
chinery. Only one engine was at work to
day, close by the remains of the engine
which the firemen were obliged to abandon
Lack of water yesterday was due to the
small size of the mains in the neighbor
hoodwhich were laid in the days of the
hand engines and are only six inches in
diameter. This nioroiag the hydrants
furnished only about five pounds pressure
apiece, instead of 20 or 25. Among the
relics were tbe remains of a cart and the
blackened skeleton of a horse. In the
yard of Hunt's pickle factory a team was
all ready to be driven away at the time
the fire cut off the means of escape.
David Shannon, who occupied apart
ments at 512 West Thirty-fifth street, and
who left his room at the outbreak of the
fire, was caught in the crowd and was un
able to return till the building was in
fltu.es. He is a contractor, and twk home
$2,000 in greenbacks the night before to
pay his workmen yesterday. He had
placed the money under bis pillow and it
was burnt up.
J he reports in regard to the loss of life
are as conflicting as yesterday. Many ner-
soo8 still believe a large number of bodies
will finally be dug out ot the ruins of
Hale s piano factory. Others believe the
loss of life is comparatively slight. Among
the latter is Capt. Washburn, who thinks
the workmen in the upper stories had time
to escape to the roof of the new factory
bef ore the latter took fire, and passed down
its stairways to the street.
ihe following named persons have been
reported to the Twentieth precinct itation-
house as being missing since tho fire: John
Kotupruet, aged 21 years. 135 avenue: A.
Edward Bisch, aged 31 years, 19 Scale
street, ifrooklyn bd. Bisch had a wife
and three children; George Grehe, aged
about 60. No. 239 West Thirty second
street, had a wife and tatuilv, and John
Kautch, 19 years, 306 West Thirty-eighth
These persons were all reported missing
by relatives or near friends. Some other
cases have been reported by irresponsible
persons, to which the police do not attach
any ituportauce. Ihe heat of the ruins is
such that it will be impossible to dig into
ttem at present.
