Jumbo perished in trying to save lh life of a baby elephant. Jumbo was both great and good, and Ihe manner of his death will preserve his memory at the same time that it will be a first rate advertisement for the greatest show on earth. The Cincinnati Commercial Gazette says Dr. Leonard, prohibition candidate for governor, has consumed "much first class whisky," and offers to pay a fine of $000 if it cannot prove the charge to the satis faction of a competent committee. If the liquor was really first cljass that is cer tainly an ameliorative circumstance. Tukke is a great deal of sympathy fur every man who is in trouble, and if the life of Louis Uicl is spared six months or so the various nations will perhaps up rieal for its indefinite continuation . This may be the miracle which the unfortu nate man is looking for. Nobody knows exactly why this general sympathy should exist, but it is a compliment to human nature llint it does. 'Ik the wiud had not shifted around to the northward," observes Captain Carter of the tli-ni-stit, "and if the Puritan and Crist-ill had not been built the Genesla would have had a walk -over." If the Puritan had sunk in the first part of the first race, if the Puritan had been tied fast to the slakehoat, anil it the Ucncsta had sailed faster she would probably have won the race. But we may remark it was not an "if race. Thk figures of Franklin, Morse and Fulton were used to personify science and invention, and it is not unlikclv that the artist casting about for I'isconl in about the year iMi should strike upon the great secessionists, and that the likenesses in that case are as real as in Others. Certainlythe artist was a little bold in his allegory, for in another piece of work, done a little later, he represents a winged messenger placing in the hands of the goddess a pair of reins to which is attached a curb bit, while a much mild er lonking messenger is handing her the palms of victory on the other side. Thus it is delicately suggested that the victor Should hold a tight rein over and curb the vanquished. Iu this great allegorical piece five figures representing discord are being driven from the scene by the angry goddess. One of these figures. whether by accident or intent has the face of Davis, and the others are con sidered fair likenesses of Ueneral Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, Alexander Stephens and Calhoun. Architect Clark thinks these likenesses are purely acci dental, or the resemblances are only fancied. The one of General Lee, for instance, he said, was put there when Lee was remembered as a daper man with no beard. Yet it was a very fair likeness of the bearded man who surrend ered to Grant.

A Jd the Tight Little Isle Appear to Have Nothing to Say Frightful Inundations In Spain Almost a Klot In London Motet. LovriON, Sept 3a The uneasiness over Reuraelia's bloodless revolution is growing in intensity. There are now prave appre hensions that it H a torch that will start a general conflagration in the east. It is feared that Russia, Austria and Germany in- tigated the upriaing, and sanctioned the bold move of Bulgaria's ruler. The prevail ing opinion in well informed circles is that the entire project, together with the final annexation of Bosnia and Herzegovina by Austria, was duly planned at the Bkierne- wice and Kremsier oonferen&a. The porta has decided to appeal to its allies, and to immediately inn tor mon. The army corps is being collected at Adrianople. The signatory powers will be at once called upon to see to it that that the mouses of the Berlin treaty are observe!. It is hardly possible that there will be a single favorable answer to the sultan's ap peal England would like to help her; but bngland, appreheuding that the three emperors have banded together to drive the Turk from Europe, and to apsir- tion the Rpoil among them-elves, will ven ture upou nothing aave protest. The present situation of affair marks the decadence of British influence. For exorcssinj; a desire o do a tithe of what has now boon accom- ilished Beaconafield a few years ago threat ened the Muscovites with war. Now Kusaia has advanced its boundaries to the very walls of Constantinople, anu England hed- tates before entering oven an energetic pr le t. Russian money is flowing freely in Uoum lia. Kus-ian agent-i are the cho en counsol- ors of the provincial government. Huasian orUcera command the ltoumeliait troop. The sultan has beeu robbed and insulted. The Berlin treaty has been flagrantly violated. And while Berlin and Vienna H.k on approvingly England aeetn-s to 1 dumb with terror. Perhaps under these circumstances blod-hed can be averted. But there is prevalent a distress ing sense of di-uuiet. There are grave fears that Lord Salisbury, spurred on by jingo clamor, and with the hope of insuring the triumph of his party in the forthcoming general election, will plunge all Eurofieinto a gigantic war. An Interview had on Tuesday last at Con stantinople with Mr. Israel Washburn, of the Robert College, an American institution on the Bosphorus, is published.

Huasia is losing her influence in the Balkan states, ani although the Bui gariant are grateful to Russia for gaining theui independence, they have since bitterly resented several attempts made by Russian agents to control the ad ministration of their affairs. I think the Bulgarians have a per fect genius for administration. They would willingly ally themselves with Kussia, but would ally with Austria against Russia rather than lose their independence," Toe Span iard, commenting ou the rising In eastern Roumelia, saysi "We can not telieve that the powers interested were ignorant ot what was coming. If they were, the gravest trouble may arise. Eng. laud has only the faintest interest, while Austria and Germany are bound to co-oper ate in keeping the Berlin treaty intact, and It remains to be seen how it will affeci Russia. If the treaty powers are acting in coneert, the sultan Is helplesi." ST. ItTKBSBCKU, Sept. 22. The Ru-siau press are jubilant over the recent events in eastern R tumelia, but seem surprised at the suddenness of the rising, and expre-i- the be- lief that the affair was arranged at the meeting of the emvrors at Kremsier am bkiernewice. PMILIPi'OPOLis, Sept. Hi The agents u all the great powers signatory to the treaty of Berlin have sent dispatches to their re spective governments, approving of the movement of Friday last.

New York, Bept 2a Mr. Lanterbatb, of the Pacitlo Mail Steamship company, said Monday in regard to endeavoring to bring to an ista its controversy with the po-tmaster general: "Mr. Vilas re fused to divide the $400, 000 subsidy between the American Steamship conipiuies, but it is not true that we have not been carrying stamped letters since the postmaster g.n aral refused to divide the subsidy, an 1 tu-it we have bean carrying mad only lor the accommodation ot merchants. The Japan ese government pays MOO.OK) per year to tin-, company for carrying the malls to ani iroin San Francisco, and with that amount we could carry the United KlaUx mails without much addi tional ' expense, but my vi it to Washington was for the purpose of givinn the do)mVtment sufficient notice that we womd uot continue in the -e.-vice of this government at rates now paid.

This government is now making t ""0 0J0 per annum on its ocean mail service and losing tl,500,0o0 by iu laud service. It would seem more business-like if the laud service hould be made to balance the gain on the sea. The position of the government is ully explained iu this way: The heal of the mail department knows that the vari ous steamship comjianiiM are paid by other governments to carry the mails, and be thought, rather than lose all, we would taka anything be wished to give us; but thera he was mistaken. Ibis com pany has lot money on every one of the touted States malls, and the other com -nines say the same thing. We would actually lie gainers by not carrying the tails at Mr. Vilas rates."
