A-correfpondent at levna telegraphs concernine Osman Pasha's reoeption by the Russians: The Grand Duke Nicholas rode up to Osman's carriage and for some seconds the two chiefs gazed into each other's faces without the utteiance of a word. Then the Grand Duke stretched out his hand, shook the , hand of Osman Pasha heartily and said: I com- yjiment you on your defense of rlevna. Lt is one of the most splendid military teats in history." Dsman smiled sadly. rose painfully to his feet in spite ot his wounds, and said something which I could not hear. He then reseated himself. lh Russian officers all cried. "Bravo."

Prince Charles cf Roumania, who had arrived, iode ud and repeated unwittingly almost every word of the Grand Duke, and likewise shook hands with Usman, who again rose and bjwed, this time in grito silence. He wore a loose blue cloak, with no apparent mark on it to designate its rank, and a red fez. He is a large, strongly built man. the lower part of his face covered with a short, black beard without a streak of gray, and be has a large Horn an nose and black eyes. it is a grand lace, exclaimed Col.

It is believed the object of the meeting was to further consider the question of mediation in connection with the Porte s circular. lha bears m the stock exchange are circulating a rumor, probably groundless, that Lord Derby, foreign minister, and the marquis of Salis bury, secretary of state for India, have resigned. A telegram from Bucharest this after noon announces the arrival of the Czar at that place, but doe not mention the death o! Osman Pasha. A dispatch from Constantinople, Sun day, says the death of Osman Pasha, while euroute to Bucharest, is announced.

Roscoe Cookling and lien. John 13 (iordoo, m the course of executive proceedings yesterday, and a mutual understanding thereon having been arrived at as set out in the following paper, it is ordered that said paper be entered at large on the legislative journal of the senate: During an executive session of the senate,held yesterday, words were uttered by Senator Conkhog, of New lork, and by Senator Gordon, of Georgia, which were mutually felt to be unkind and offensive. Reports of the incident appearing in the papers ot this morning which are inaccur ate and unjust to both speakers, on careful inquiry as to what was said by each speaker and what was understood to be said by others, it is certain that the first offen sive words were inspired by an honest misunderstanding ot what had been inno cently said by the other speaker. One harsh remark provoked another, as often happens, but all that was offensive was the out growth of misapprehension. Since such was the tact we, who are mutual friends of both senators are of the opinion that it is due alike to the senate and to the speakers that whatever was felt to be unkind or offensive in the remarks cf either should bo treated. as if Dever uttered, and we are now authorized to state, are mutually and simultaneously withdrawn.

Hubbard to the presi dent calling for assistance from the United States troops to repel the invasion 01 iexan territory, caused some excitement here, but the government advices do not warrant the impression that other than local troubleshave preseutedthemselves. There is no idea whatever that the Mexican gov ernment is tiiakiDg any hostile demonstra tion. So far as can be learned the un friendly movements arc Dearly the same nature as those which were the subject of attention from the war department some months ago, when the question of pro prietorship of certain salt pits in El Paso county caused much disorder there. The government does not consider that the troubles are iu any degree international. The dispatches were, however, promptly referred to the secretary of war. who. after consultation with Gen. Sherman, gave di rections for mustering forces in Texas in sueb positions as to give whatever aid may 03 necessary to prevent assault upon American citizens or their property, ' Washington, Dec. 17.
