THE COST OF WAR.
Military Armaments and Their Cost-
The Loss of Life.
According to a little tract published
recently by the London Peace Society
the armaments of Europe in the present
'-ear are:
Army Army
Peace War Navy.
Footing. Footing. Tons.
Russia(European).800,000 1,6000 80,000
Germany ........800,000 1,400,000 85,000
France....... ....750,00 1,300,000 100,000
Austria. ....... 400,000 800,000 65000
Italy..........200,000 450,000 100,000
Great Britain.....150,000 400,000 200,000
It will be seen that the total strength
of the regularly trained soldiers of Eu-
rope amounts to nearly 6,000,000; or
having regard to the fact that the whole
adult population of the nations of Eu-
rope, except Great Britain, is liable to
be called to take arms, the total mili-
tary force may be estimated at from 6,-
000,000 to 10,000,000. The lesser num-
ber equals the whole of the adult and
efficient population of the British
nds. It has been pointed out thatif
on" -half of the present excessive
armies o ropewere disbanded at least
3,000,000 m of from 20 to 35 years
of age would be stored ta productive
labor, and $500,900,000 of money
saved from oppressive taxation. The
tract before us contains a table enumer-
ating the wars between 1853 and 1877,
and the loss of life they occasioned.
There were killed in battle, or died of
wounds and diseases. 750,000 men in
the Crimean war, 45,000 in the Italian
war of 1859, 3,000 in the war of Schies-
wig Holstein, 800,000 inithe American
civil war, 45,000 in the Prussian war of
1866, 155,000 on the French side, and
t the German, in the Franco-
Germanw of 1870-'71, which with the
other and smaller affairs, brings the
total slain to 1,948,000 during twenty-
five years. These wars are not less
costly in money than they are in lives,
as the following figures will show :
Crimean war.................... 1,700.000,000
Italian war of 1859 .............. 300,000,000
American civil war, the North... 4,700,000,000
American civil war, the South.. 2,300,000,000
Schleswig-Holstein war ......... 35,000,000
Austrian and Prussian war in
1866 ... ................... 330,000,000
Franeo-Prussian war........... 2,500,000,000
Other wars, expeditions, etc..... 200,000,000
Total ...................1..... 2,065,000,000'
This calculation excludes the allied
expedition against China, the Indian
mutiny, and the Abyssinian and Ashan-
tee campaigns. These items may be
included in the general expenditure of
Great Britain upon war, debt and war-
like preparations since 1851, which
amounts to the large sum of $6,528,-
163,995. It is estimated that the enor-
mous sum given in the foregoing table
would, if divided, allow about $10 for
every man, woman and child in the
habitable globe. It would make two
railways around the world at the rate
of $250,000 a mile. It would provide
a freehold farm of 100 acres in this
country to each of the 50,000,000 adult
ales in Europe.

'TE NORTHAMPTON ROBBERS.
A Ltonlshing Behavior of Scottandl Dun-
lap After the Verdict.
NORTHAMPTON, July 25.-Soon after
Scott and Dunlap, the bank robbers, had
been taken into court to-day a man ran in
and whispered to Sheriff Longley, who
went out rapidly, The report spread that
there had been a jail delivery. Turnkey
Bridgman heard some one calling in the
jail, and, on going to see what the matter
was, he was told by a prisoner that some-
thing was wrong in Scott's cell. The cells
of Scott and Dunlap are usually locked
when they are in court. Bridgman went
into the cell, and was seizedbythemenwho
were hiding. They knocked him down,
bound and gagged him, took the key from
him, and, opening the outer door, walked
out. They were Clover Russel, John Cra-
mer and Frank Elder, burglers, and Joseph
Dubroil, horse thief. All but Cramer were
recaptured. The event caused great ex-
citement, as an attempt to rescue Scott
andDunlap had been fearedby the authori-
ties.
- After the argument and the charge the
jury retired at 3 P. M., and remained out
until 6, when Scott and Dunlap stood up
tohear the verdict. Scott showed excite-
ment, and vigorously fanned himself as if
for air. Dunlap cooly chewed a toothpick.
The verdict was "Guilty." Dunlap's cool-
ness did not leave him. but Scott seemed
faint. The jury say that when they first
went out they all voted that the attempt
topro~a.n alibi was perjury. The only
mS left was whether Edson's
G -- to be believed, and on
that firstt voted ten to two; but the
two concurred in a conviction.
The court adjourned but the people
stayed to see the prisoners brought out.
To avoid the jam the prisoners were taken
into the jury room, where Detective
Robert Pinkerton was arranging and
packing the papers and other evidence
that the jury had been examining. Scott
stood handcuffed to an officer. Suddenly
he dashed at the table and grabbed some
papers which he tried to destroy. He put
one in his mouth and tried to swallow it.
He was seized and choked until it was
got from his mouth. "Tear it up, Bob,"
saidDunlap, who stoodby; but before Scott
could do this it was taken from him. Then
he jumped at Pinkerton, who put his
band on his pistol, when Scott quieted,
but said "I'll kill you! I want that
picture of my wife-it's mine." Then,
turning to the two jurymen he said: "You
are twoperjured villins." He had suc-
ceeded in tearing the picture of his wife,
which had been found in Duntp's trunk,
and had tried to destroy the diagrams of
the Syracuse Bank, which had been
found also in Dunlap's trunk. The punish-


meant for the offene of which the pris.
owners were found guilty to-day is life im-
prisonment in the Massachusetts State
prison. The bank is making every effort
to capture Billy Connors, Red Leary, and
the rest of the gang.
ANOTHER OF THE GANO CAUGHT.
NEW YonE, August 3.-Oscar D. Peter-
son arrested yesterday for grand larceny
and who fired at a policeman and shot a
citizen, was identified to-day by the
Deputy Warden of Sing Sing Prison as
Jim Brady, a notorious burglar and bank
robber, well known to the police as being
implicated in the Northampton bank rob-
bery, the Keesville bank robbery and
other crimes in Philadelphia, in this city
and elsewhere.

THOSE UNREASONABLE MINERS.
A California ilurralh for Colonel Wel-
ler and Ills Work.
[Grass Valley Union, August 3.1
Over on the Comstock lode, which
same is in Storey county, State of
Nevada, the miners have become un-
reasonable. They have also shown an
insubordination, in the fact that they
have complained about abuses put upon
them. A standing army ought to be
sent there to check such complaints and
put down all unreasonableness mani-
fested by those underground toilers. It
seems that in some of the mines these
men could not get a job of work unless
they boarded and lodged at houses
owned by a Mrs. Cooper. She also got
commissions from some of the miners
for securing them places in which to
work. The thing has been investigated
by Colonel C. L. Weller, the President
of some of the companies in whose
mines such business has been going on,
and he has listened to those miners'
complaints. He has stopped Mrs.
Cooper's speculations in that line, and
he has suspended Sam Curtis from tIhe
Superintendency of those mines. An-
other small matter the miners had the
audacity to complain about. The com-
panies of which Colonel Weller is Presi-
dent, furnish gold coin for the payment
of employes. The mining clerks, it is
alleged, are in the habit of getting sil.
ver for the gold, paying off the work-
ingmen with silver and keeping the
premium on the gold for their own use.
Colonel Weller is going to stop that,
and thereby deprive those mining
clerks of a considerable revenue which
they are, it is said, stealing from the
miners. Purchasing agents for those
mines are also accused of getting com-
missions on what they buy. In all
those crooked things the working
miners get the worst of it every time.
Some people will say, perhaps, that if
the miners do not like to be cheated in
such transactions they have a right to
quit work, and go off and starve. That
is the cdtnmon way of talking to work-
ing meh, in these days, vhen they re-
fuse to be oppressed. Hurrah for
Colonel Weller we say.

CATS AS PREMONITORS.
A Reminiscence of the Southern Hotel
Fire.
[From the National Hotel Reporter. ]
The servant girls who escaped from the
hotel in St. Louis tell a singular story
about their premonition of a fearful dias-
ter. The girls occupied three different
rooms in the sixth story, and about 11
o'clock, after they had retired and most
of them were asleep, a cat came, scratched
against the doors, and moaned pitifully.
As a cat has never before been seen in
that part of the house, many of the girls
were frightened. Lizzie Leary, a girl
strongly superstitious in her inclinations,
woke up the other inmates of the room
in which she slept, and told them that.
there was a cat at the door acting
strangely, and expressed a belief that it
was the sign of something going to hap-
pen, at which the girls laughed and ridi-
culed her. When they opened the door
the cat mewed, but refused to come in,
and in a moment retreated down the hall
as if badly frightened. About 12 o'clock
all the girls in that room were awakened
by the noise of cats at the door. On
opening the door they discovered four
felines crouching against and scratching
the wall, and moaning as if in terror.
They procured a broom and endeavored
to drive the disturbers down the hall to-
ward the stairway leading to the door
below, but they refused to go in that di-
rection. While making the effort to drive
them away, the door of the adjoining
room, where other girls slept, was opened,
whereupon the cats made a frantic rush
into the room, and flew under the beds
where they crouched together. By this
time a dozen of the girls were awake and
excited over the strange action of the
cats. The cats refused to move from
their position under the bed, neither
blows nor persuasive calls having any
effect upop them. All the cats were re-
cognized as those belonging in the cellars,
and on the lower floors, where they were
used as mousers, and their advent to the
sixth floor, together with their unaccount-
able actions, very naturally aroused the
fears of the servents, and the more ner-
vous ones could hardly be persuaded to
retire to bed. It was concluded to let the
cats remain under the beds, and in half
an hour quiet was again restored. When
the alarm of fire came the cats were still
under the bed, crouching and mewing
and there they stayed until the girls were
rescued by the memorable courage of
Michael Hester.
It is said that all the girls now have a
firm belief that the visit of the cats was a
warning of impending danger, and that
they were sent there by some mysterious
agency to give a timely premonition. The
proper theory doubtless is, that occupying
that part of the lower building where the
fire first started, and where it spread and
groaned and cracked in a smothered way,
perhaps for hours before the alarm was
given, the cats became terror stricken, and
sought safety by flight to the upper
stories. They stopped at the servant
girl's room because it was the highest
point that could be reached, and
here conducted themselves in a man-
ner which the girls, very excusably,
consider altogether perternatural.
Badean the Snob.
And now we learn from London that
the badge and ribbon worn by Badeau at
the Duke of Wellington's dinner were
not the badge of the Society of the Cin-
cinnati after all. It seems that long ago
Badeau bent his mighty intellect to in-
venting a declaration for his chief and
for the personal staff of his chief which
should adequately express their umbilical
position in the midst of the armies of
America. He devised a jewel combining
in itself all the different "crps of the
Army of the Union, and caused two of
the same to be made, one for his chief and
one for himself. This was the glittering
gaud which he bore about his neck at
Apsley House, attached to a ribbon like
unto those worn by the commanders of
various noble and knightly orders in
Europe. It cannot be thought singular
Lhat it should have attracted the attention
of the Duke's guests, and it is compli-
mentary to the American character that
nobody should have known precisely what
to make of such an exhibition on the
part of an American Consul-General in
ondon.
A Man's Head Pliled Off.
The San Antonio Express says: Yes-
terday a gentleman named Wilbur, just
arrived from Frio county, reported in the
office of Messrs. Moss & Bennett that a
day or two ago, near the Prio, the body
of a man whose name e failed to learn
was found on the prairie with the head
completely severed from the body. Near
the body was found a horse, with a raw-
hide lariat fastened to the saddle, the


other end of the lariat being attached to
to horns of a steer. This lariat, for a
distance of three or four feet, was freshly
stained with blood, and the supposition
was that in lassoing the steer the lariat
had accidently become twisted or wound
around the man's neck, and that after he
had caught the steer in the rope he had
been dragged about by the steer and horse
until his head had been completely torn
from the body. The man's head had
not been found when Mr. W. left that
section.
Prospective Libel Suit.
Mrs. Cooper, the lady who has fur-
nished the Virginia Chronicle so many
good items, was in town yesterday,
We understand she proposes to sue the
Chronicle for libel, setting her damages
at $60,000. If she will take it in silver
probably the C'hronicle will give it to
her without protest. And so goes the
world,--eu Joulhrnal, Aug, 5.


A tREMIARKABLE FEAT.
Photographing a Horse Trotting at
Full Speed.
[S. F. Post, August 3.
Mr. Muybridge, the well-known;i-,
tographic artist, has executed a feat n
his art which has never beore been
attempted. He succeeded last July in
taking Occident while f.otting at the
rate of a mile in 2 nmitutea and 27 sec-
onds. The negative was exposed for
less than one-thousandth part of a sec-
ond, yet the positive printed from it is
perfect in the most minute detail. Mr.
Muybridge says the exposure was made
while Occident was trotting past him
at the rate of 2:27, accurately timed, or
36 feet in a second, about 40 feet dis-
tant, the exposure of the negative being,
less than one-thousandth of a second.
The length of exposure can be pretty
accurately determined from the fact
that the whip in the driver's hand did
not move the distance of its diameter.
The picture has been retouched, as is
customary at this time with all first-
class photographic work, for the pur.
pose of giving a better effect to the
details. In every other respect the
photograph is exactly as it was made in
the camera. Mr. Muybridge intends to
take a series of pictures, showing the
step of Occident at all its stages, and
in this manner, for the first time, the
precise differences in the motions of
different horses, can be clearly repre-
sented-a matter of much interest to
horsemen, for trotters vary in their
action, one having his fore le straight
when it touches the ground another
crooked, and so on.

PIANO TUNING.

F-A. HERRING MAS RETURNED.--
. Inasmnch as every tuner who has been
here for the last four years has taken advantage
of me, because I never worked in a piano fac-
tory, to speak ill of me, and believing I would
not suffer in comparison as a tuner, or in char-
acter for fair dealing, and there were so many to
believe them I thought it would be a good stroke
of policy to leave for a while, and let the lying,

MONDAYr........... AUGUST 6,1877

The Evening Chronicle has more
than double the circulation of
any other newspaper iT Vir-
PTnI CM-,?.
The Iirit.'l quasrterly.
The Brif!ie Qc,.'i Review for July
has come to hand. WV have not space
to do more than briefly mention the
principal contents.
'I'he leading article is entitled "Re-
ligious Ideas and Modern Thought."
The writer endeavors to present a fair
statement of the method of divine revel-
ation to mankind, and to explain its re-
lations with the question of Christian
Dogma. lHe maintains that "Christian
Dogma is not one whit more transcen-
dental than what goes by the name of
scientific truth," and his arguments
k might enlighten Bob Ingersoll and his
admirers, if it be possible to enlighten
that class of people who placidly think
they already "know it all."
Under the title of "The Athens of
Thucydides." we have comments on the
manner of that historian, a presentation
of the main argument of the History of
the Peloponnesian War, aud a short
sketch of the policy of Ancient Athens.
Of the other articles, that on "The
Southern Slaves," written by the well-
known historian, Edward A. Freeman,
will undoubtedly receive 'the most at-
tention. The Slaves of the Danube,
the Balkan, and the Dalmatian Alps
form the special subject. The divisions
of the Slavonic race, their early history
and settlements; the Slavonic occupa-
tion of Greece, and the slaves of South-
ern Russia; all these topics, with a
glance at Bulgarian history, are in-
S teresting at the present time.

COLONEL WVELLER'S energetic work in
this city cannot be displeasing to all of
the Ophir Trustees. Colonel J. P. Jack-
son is a member of the Board. He is
also managing editor of the San Fran-
cisco Post, which thus emphatically ap-
proves of what has been done:
The work done by Colonel Weller dur-
ing the past week will have its good
results. Out of the agitation of the Cur-
tis crookedness a general inspection of the
accounts of other superintendents will
arise. That there has been carelessness
at headquarters is evident from the state
of affairs at the Virginia office of the
Ophir company. Had accounts and
vouchers been more closely examined, the
petty peculations of the superintendent
and the book-keeper would have been de-
tected ere this. Having got upon the
right track, let Colonel Weller follow it
up. Yiw]ill win him honor among the
stockholders and appreciate the value of
thbebmpanies' shares in the market.
COL. M. V. SHERIDAN, brother ofjthe
General, has written to Buffalo Bill,
denying the report that he had said
that such men as Bill and Cap-
tain Jack were arrant cowards. He
concludes: "I have said, however,
that about seven-tenths of the men on
the frontier, who always howl when
Indian troubles begin, 'Let the old
mountaineers get at 'em!' were a pack
S of cowards, and you know this to be the
fact as well as I do ; but I decline to
be held responsible for the manner in
which newspaper men may choose to
illustrate my remark."

THE Turkish Minister of Foreign Af-
fairs has sent a circular to Turkish rep-
resentatives abroad, reciting the bar-
barous acts committed by the Russians,
and says it is necessary that the civil-
ized world should become acquainted
with these horrors, to express its in-
dignation and to brand them. After
reading the accounts given by English
correspondents of the doings of .the
S Bashi-Bazouks, the general sentiment
will be that the Russians can hardly be
blamed -- they make frightful retali-
attonir

Falulne in India.
LONDON, August 6.-Advices from
India state that the harvest prospects
are somewhat improved, but severe
distress will probably continue for some
months longer. There is considerable
anxiety in Southern India. An appeal
to the British public, issued by a public
meeting in Madras, says : The rainfall
S continues to be insufficient. A popula-
tion of 20,000,000 is affected and num-
bers are absolutely depending on
chArity. In the Madras Presidency
adloe 1,750,000 of persons daily receive
assistance. The mortality is increas-
ing. The distress is now reaching the
better classes. The pressure must con-
tinue until the crops are gathered in
January. The necessity for assistance
is most urgent and pressing.
The latest oficial reports state that
Nepoul, Bitermah and Assam have suf-

An English t'rle's View of thi Situ-

LoiNDO, August 4.-The first move-
ment of the Russians toward carrying
out their plan of campaign, heretofore
foreshadowed as one likely to be se-
lected, has resulted in the disaster of
Plevna. The purpose of the Russian
Generals obviously was to wheel around
their right and left wings to a line
parallel with the Balkans, taking Tir-
nova as a pivot, and thus force Osman
Pasha and Mehmet Ali back across the
mountains on their respective lines of
retreat. This accomplished, and Osman
Pasha and Mehmet Ali prevented from
effecting a junction by the forces
under General Gurko, which were mean-
while to establish themselves south of
the Balkans, the Russian campaign
would have been beyond the danger of
failure or serious interruption. A
promenade across the Danube and over
the Balkans while the Turks remained
idle in their camps and fortresses was
perhaps sufficient to justify the idea of
the Russians that they had only to ad-
vance to insure that the Turks would
retreat. It was this feeling which led
the Russians into the fatal ambush of
Plevna a fortnight ago, and which on
Tuesday sent an inferior force to avenge
that disaster on a victorious army in a
fortified position. The result is that
all is chaos again as far as our knowl-
edge of the situation is concerned, and
that the news dispatches from the
front are full of panicky or exaggerated
rumors, dictated by the hopes or fears
of either side. But the salient fact is
unquestioned that the Russians have
been checked in their campaign. They
cannot make any progress until they
have shaken off Mehmet Ali and Os-
man Pasha from their flanks, and mean-
while Gurko's task south of the Bal-
kans is rendered more and more serious.

It is alleged that the Dobrudscha will
be almost wholly evacuated, and Zim-
mermen's corps will return via Sistova
to the central army. The Czar has de-
creed fresh levies at home, all of which
means that the military promenade has
been turned into an affair of life or
death for the Russians, and that the
Turks will be crushed if there is power
in Russia to crush them.
THE TURKISH PLAN
Is believed to be for Osman Pasha to
fight his way eastward, and daily-
by the concentration and organ-
ization of Suleiman Pasha's forces-
Mehmet Ali to advance westward upon
Tirnova, while Suleiman Pasha en-
deavors to force the Russian position
at Kazanlik. But in doing this Osman
Pasha must expose his left flankto the
risk of being turned from the direction
of Nikopolis, thus facilitating the Rus-
sian plan of pivoting on Tirnova and
forcing him to retire behind the Bal-
kans. Mehmet Ali would incur the
same danger from the Russians between
Rustehuk and Rasgrad, while Suleiman
Pasha must attack the Russians in po-
sitions of their own choice.
The Turkish plan does net look very
promising unless the Russians aid it by
mistakes like those at Plevna, but it
may, with skillful handling, serve to
keep the Russians in check until the
campaigning season is over, which
would.be for the Turks the next thing
to absolute victory.
Bth Russia and Turkey are submit-
ting to a terrible strain on their re-
sources to give them a decided advan-
tage in this campaign. In the mean-
time it would seem-from apparently
well-authenticated reports of murder
and rapine by Bashi-Bazouks, Bul-
garians and Cossacks-that the war is
fast assuming a character of savage
cruelty which threatens to make it a
war of extermination for all the inhab-
itants of the territory involved, whether
Christian or Mahommedan.
IN ASIA.
The intention of the Russians to ad-
vance from Ardahan as reported last
week is confirmed by the news that
their outposts have already pushed on
as far as Pennek. Another division is
marching to Ardanusch, which com-
mands the road from Batoum to Olti.
A third column of fresh forces is occu-
pying the line of the Adjara river south
of Batoum. This points to an evident
intention to advance possibly on Erze-
roum or to carry out sweeping flank
and rear movements on Mukhtar
Pasha's army before Kars, which will
be covered by attacks in front, conducted
by DMelikoff's forces at Kurnkdara,
supported by General Tergukassoff,
who is believed to be somewhere on
the river Arades, south of Inars. The
latter plan is more probable than the
advance on Erzeroum, if indeed the
whole movement on Olti is not a feint
to distract Mukhtar's attention from
what is going on in front. But as a
feint might be construed into a real at-
tack, Mukhtar cannot afford to ignore
it. He will therefore be forced to de-
tach a considerable number of men
from the main army to guard the base
of the triangle formed by Ardahan,
Kars and Olti, whilst the Russians are
able to direct their operations from the
apex, Ardahan, against any portion of
the base, and assisted by General Ter-
gukassoff, can cut Mukhtar's communi-
cation with Erzeroum and force him to
fall back upon or into Kars. Telegrams
from Constantinople report that a por-
tion of the Turkish Batonm army is em-
barking for Varna to reinforce Mehmet

The War in Bulgaria.
THE DEFEAT AT PLEVNA NOT O0 DISAS-
TROUS AS AT FIRST REPORTED.
LONDO-, August 6.-The Times' cor-
respondent, who left the Russian camp
before Plevna Thursday, says the Rus-
sian advance guard is within six miles
of Plevna, and the main body occupies
a strong position nine miles further east,
on the range of hills running nearly
north and south. Strong reinforce-
ments have already reached General
Krudener's corps, which is able to resist
any offensive movement of Osman Pasha
should one be attempted, which is not
very probable. The Russians have suf-
fered a disastrous check, but that is
all. The second pontoon bridge at Sim-
nitza is nearly completed and will be
ready for use in a few days. The old
.one is still hi good order.
.MOVEEENTS 'F TtE OPPOSING FORCES,
BI:CHAAEST, August 4.-A T4rkish
division from Lovatz has occupied Selvi
unopposed. The Turks at llevna have
received reinforcements of 4,000 Al-
banian cavalry. The Russian forces are
between Selvi and Tirnova, holding
strong defensive positions. General
Courko is charged with the duty of


protecting the southern outlets of the
Balkan passes.
Suleiman Pasha occupied Kasanlik on
Sunday, thereby securing his access to
Shipka and Triavna passes.
STRATEGICAL ISIPORTANCE OF SELVI.
VIENNA, August (.-Strategically the
most important news from the seat of
war is the occupation of Selvi. This
exposes Tirnova and the passes. Gen-
eral Gourko's corps is said to be short
of provisions and ammunition. Rusmt-
chuk is no longer invested from the
land side, and communication with
Shumla was opened yesterday.
General. Gourko has sent word to
Tirnova that his forces are scattered to
protect the Christians in various places
against the certainty of massacre.
TIME REQUIRED FOR RUSSIAN REIS-
FORCEMENTS.
LONDON, August 6.-The Times' cor-
respondent before Plevna, writing
under date of August 2, says : It is
hardly probable any renewal of the
attack will be made for the next ten
days, as the Russians need that time
to bring up reinforcements.
WANTS TO GET AT THE TURKS' LEFT
FLANK.
A Berlin correspondent telegraphs:
In consequence of the defeat at Plevna
the Czar has asked the Emperor of Aus-
tria to withdraw his former protest
against the Russians entering Servia
and conjointly with the Servians ope-
rating on the left flank of the Turks.
OSMAN PASHA IN DANGER.
LONDON, August 6.-The Russians
are showing great energy in sending
forward reinforcements. The force in
the Dobrudscha has been ordered to
Sistova, and everything indicates that
the Russian commanders fully appreci-
ate the importance of reversing the po-
sition as soon as possible. Osman
Pasha's situation must draw upon him
a serious onslaught before many days.
The Twelfth Corps, whether pressed
by Mehmet Ali or not, cannot remain
in bivouac before Rustchuk, but must
march to the support of its beaten com-
rades. The Russians have retired from
Biela to Sistova. According to the latest
intelligence from Turkish sources, the
position of Osman Pasha at Plevna is
now solidified, and with recent cavalry
reinforcements he now commands 65,-
000 men. Supply depots have been
established at Rahova and Glavna, and
he has been able to detach a flying col-
umn under Hafiz Pasha by the post
cross-roads to Selvi. This column is
intended to communicate with the
army of the Lower Danube.
Turkey Afraid of Greece.
CONSTANTINOPLE, August 4. The

ciate the honor conferred by the
Democracy of Ohio, and while keenly
alive to the great responsibilities I as.
sume, I trust, if elected, to be able
under Providence to discharge faithfully

principles enunciated by the convention

their respective rights.
The times call for most discreet man-

The mere assertion of principles will
not meet the emergency. They must
be vitalized, energized so as to restore
confidence to our financial, commercial
and industrial pursuits.
If called by the people to the head of
the administration of affairs in this

This table includes the product of all
the mines down to the 30th of June,
1877, following the official reports. It
is estimated that 40 per cent. of the
product was gold, making in silver
$141,216,207 and in gold $94,144,139.
This statement does not include all the
ores from the Ophir, Gould and Curry,
$avage ad Gold Hill mines that were
sold and shipped away before being re-
duced. Part of such ores have been
included where indicated by the official
reports, but there have been probably
enough in addition to increase the total
number of tons to 6,000,000 and the
total product to 8237,000,00q.
It will be observed that, including
the rich ores from the'present bonanza,
the average cost of all the ores from the
lode has been less than $40 per ton.
Excluding those ores, the remainder
shows an average of but $31 9.7-- there
are 5,260,39q tons ard $i8,191,972-and
this includes the Crown Point-Belcher
ores. There is still a large amount of
ore remaining in the old chambers of so
low a grade that it will not pay at pres-
ent the cost of production. After the
Sutro tunnel has been completed, if 4t1
expenses should be reduce to i min-
imum, it will li possible, perhaps, to
extract this ore without loss and put

sible to make an accurate estir,-t,

In the la ere are probably not

ABOUT SHIP.
The San Francisco Bear Organ Thinks
the Bonanzas Have $35,000,000 of
Ore as yet Untouched.
The S. F. Chronicle of yesterday pub-
lishes two interesting tables, which we
copy below. The first shows the date
of discovery of each Comstock bonan-
za, the highest point of each ore-body
in the ledge, the average depth, width
and length. Of course the exact fig-
ures cannot be given, as the ore-bodies
are all of irregular shape; but the only
way by which any idea of the size can
be given is an approximate statement
of the average length, depth and width
of each body. The greatest difficulty
is met with in such mines as the Chol-
lar-Potosi, where there have been sev-
eral ore-chambers found separated usu-
ally by low-grade quartz. These are
all described as one, since that
is the only practicable way to
make a comparison with other mines.
The ore deposits found in the
Ophir since 1865 are also of -
very broken character, being rather a
cluster of small bodies than one solid
body. For purposes of comparison,
however, the table is sufficiently accu-
rate. It will be seen that nine out of
fifteen were surface bonanzas, that one
was within 100 feet of the surface, one
within 200 feet, and one within 400
feet, while but three have extended
below the depth of 1,000 feet from the
surface. The two best bonanzas were
deep ones, but the ores in Ophir which
have come from the 1650 level (equiva-
lent to a depth of 1800 feet in the Con-
solidated Virginia), though the deepest
on the lode, have been of low grade-
too poor to pay dividends under the
present management. They have, how-
ever, yielded several millions of dollars
in bullion. The first table is as fol-
lows :

warn was found lying on the floor, near
the door. Blood was issuing from his
left ear. He was living, but uncon-
scious, and died in a few moments.
Near him lay the occupant of the room,
Mrs. Jessie Lewis, with her dress on
fire on the left side and in a dying con-
dition. A physician was hurriedly
summoned, but his services were of no
avail, the woman dying in a few min-
utes. The only statement she made
was that Rosewarn had shot her and
himself. A small revolver was found on
the floor,with two chambers discharged,
and in the woman's satchel in a ward-
robe was found a box of cartridges
fitting the pistol.
The Coroner called and made an ex-
amination of the bodies. He found
Rosewarn was shot in the back of the
head, while the woman's wound was in
the left side, and from the location of
the injuries it seems more probable that
the woman committed the deed herself.
Both parties were English. Rosewarn
was about 41 years of age and had been
superintendent of the St. Lawrence
mine in El Dorado county. Mrs. Lewis
was aged about 33, and some time ago
lived in the vicinity of the mine, but
had been stopping at the International
for some months. Recently she be-
came much straitened for means and
had applied to Rosewarn for assistance.
She also told some acquaintances in the
hotel that she expected him to call this
morning.
The Coroner held an inquest this
morning on the bodies. No new facts
were developed except that the woman's
proper name was Reynolds, Lewis hav-
ing been her maiden name. The jury
found a verdict to the effect that Mrs.
Reynolds fired the fatal shots.
A PROCURESS ARRESTED.
On Friday night last policeman Snive-
ly arrested, in a house at the corner of
Third and Verona streets, a woman
named Arloff, and charged her with be-
ing a procuress. He also detained as
witnesses two of Mrs. Arloff's pro-
teges, named Louisa Martin and Alice
Worth, who, it is alleged, make it their
business to decoy innocent girls into
Madame Arloff's establishment. This
house, for several years prior to the
advent of Madame Arloff, two or three
months ago, was occupied by the noto-
rious procuress Mrs. Schultz, who is
quite well known in police and criminal
circles.
COL. MENDELL'S WATER REPORT.
Colonel Mendell, Engineer of the
Water Commission, presented his re-
port to-day. It is a bulky document,
reviewing in detail the various schemes
for supplying the city, but making no
recommendation.

The Anmerican People.
No people in the world suffer as much
with Dyspepsia as Americans. Although years
of experience in medicine has failed to ac:om-
plish a certain and sure remedy for this disease
and its effect, such as Sour Stomach, Heart-
burn, Water-brash, Sick Headache, Costiveness,
Palpitation of the Heart, Liver Complaint,
coming up of food, low spirits, general debility,
etc., yet since the introduction of GREEN'S
AUGUST FLO\VER, we believe there is no case of
Dyspepsia that cannot be immediately relieved.
30,000 dozen sold last year without one case of
failure reported. Go to youll Druggist, A. M.
COLE, and g't a .ample bottle for 10 cents
and try it. Two doses willrelieve you. Regu-
lar size 75 cents. de2l1 ow ly

close and careful timberig. The water
has gradually increased, until quite a
heavy stream now runs from this cross-
cut. Too tiemiperature of this drift is
116 degrees Flahrnhecit, and conse-
quently slower progress will be made.
During the week we passed through
several clay slips running in a north-
easterly direction, but the general
formation is unchanged. The south-
east drift on the 1500 level, work in
which had to be suspended until better
ventilation could be procured, will
probably be started up again the last
of this week. Yours truly,

A. K. P. Hanron, President-Opera-
tions at the company's mine for the
week ending this date had the follow-
ing results : Number of tons of ore ~-
tracted, 495 ; forwarded to mills, 51(6
tons--12,000 pounds; average assay
value, $21 75 per ton. The east drift
at 1785 level has been driven 63 feet.
The pump has worked 20C hours.
Inclosed please find ore-slips for 3d
instant-47 tons and 700 pounds. Re-
spectfully, 1. L. REQUA, Sup't.
JUSTICE-The low stage of water in
the Carson river having compelled some
of the mills to hang up their stamps, it
became necessary to lessen the produc-
tion of ore, consequently the working
force was reduced 120 men. All the
crushing capacity of Gold Canyon is
fully employed, and until there is
enough water in the river to allow the
water mills to resume crushing opera.
tions the daily yield of the mine will
be limited to 320 tons. Work in the
mine is going on as usual, the ore on
the 1000 level being much easier to
Work than any heretofore met with.
The quantity of water on the 1000 level
has greatly increased of late, owing to
the suspension of work in the Silver
Hill mine. Thepumping engine, which
formerly kept the mine clear by mak-
ing 4 and 4J strokes per minute, now
makes 7 strokes per minute.
HALE AND NORCROSs-The water this
morning was one foot below the 1900
station. It was eight feet below yes-
terday, but one of the Savage donkey-
pumps having given out, the water
again gained on the pumps. To-day it
is held stationary, pending the putting
in of a new pump at the Savage. The
pump is running an average of about
six strokes per minute. Since the
water has been lowered below the 1900
level main drift the temperature of the
air close to the surface has decreased
materially. It is now 98 degrees
Fahrenheit.
BULLION-On the 1600 and 1700
levels and in the main incline work was
suspended last Saturday morning,
owing to the bad condition of the main
shaft between the 400 and 500 levels,
which portion will have to be retim-
bered. Work in the incline and on the
lower levels will be resumed by the
end of the week. On the 2000 level
work is going on as usual through the
Imperial shaft, and the east crosscut is
still being pushed.
JULIA.-The material in the face of
the south drift on the 1800 level is still
in quartz which assays up to $15 per
ton. The east drift on the same level
has penetrated into a fine formation of
clay and pebbly quartz, which is ex-
pected to develop into something better
than has hitherto been found in the
mine. The annual meeting of the com-
pany will be held in San Francisco.
SAVAGE-The water is now down to
the 1900 station, and will be held there
until the new No. 9 Knowles pump,
which arrived yesterday, is put in. A
new blower is being put in at the 1600
level, to force air down to the 1900.
Work on the Gould & Carry and Sav-
age joint winze, which is now down to
the 1685 level, will be resumed next
Thursday morning.
YELLOWY JACKET.-The 2200 level is
the only one being worked in the old
mine. The main east drift is in 215
feet in bird's-eye porphyry. The main
south drift is in about 85 feet south of
west crosscut, and cutting quartz seams
having a southwest strike. A north
drift from the bottom of the wine was
's-ted last week. The new shaft is
down o-0 feet, the bottom in hard
blasting rock.
131PERIAL-Work is going on as usual
in the north drift on the 21: level, in
the east crosscut near the center of t9
mine on the same level, and in the south
winze below that level, which latter has
an improved appearance.
SIERRA NEVADA-The north drift to
connect with the Utah 1150 level is
still in vein matter. On the 1500 level
the south drift to connect with Mexican
is making good progress. On t( l 1700
level the south drift is reaching for the
body of low-grade ore encountered in
crosscut No. 3 on the 1500 level.
UNION CONSOLIDAm4'ED-Besides the
advent of Mr. Bonynge, yesterday, as
foreman, there is no change worthy of
note in this mine, work going on as
usual in the north drift on the 1300
level and in the east crdsscut from bot-
tom of winze below same level,
UTAH. -The incline winze below the
1150 level continues in fine quartz.
The south drift on the 1150 level, to
connect with Sieryt nevada, is making
good progress. So is the d4ift to the
ledge on the same level
SILVER HILL.-The new pumb-bob is
completed, and will be shipped from
San Francisco in a day or two. As soon
as it arrives it will be put in place, and
work resumed in the mine. The water
in the mine neither increases nor di-
minishes, and as soon as the bob is in it
will be drained in a short time.
vFERMANit-Drifting sC'th and cross-
cutting elp on the 1300 level, at a
point about 39' feei sou.th of the shaft ;
crosscutting east on 140) e ,vel; and
crosscutting east on 1100 level, at a
point about 350 feet south of the shaft.
No change worthy of note in the forma-
tion encountered.
CALDO .m-Prifting north on the
1400 and 1600 Ie'vels,'-without notable
change.

THE TURNERS' PICNIC.

A Jolly Time at Farmer T rea
way's Ranch Yesterday.

Annitsling Incielncts of tie Day-TI
Girls' Foot Race-The Pnurmuit
the Slippery I'l Clinbling tl
Greasy I'ole--Ete.

The Turners had a pretty jolly tii
at Treadway's yesterday, and in con
junction with their Carson brother
treated the public to a day of soli
enjoyment. Some of the scenes an
incidents were alone worth the price o
admission--for instance,
S THE LADIES' RACE.
About twenty agile young female
(over fifteen) were ranged in a row, t
run a race of thirty yards. The crow
poured out from the pavilion and fille
up the space so completely that the la
dies found hardly room to breathe, le
alone to run. It took nearly half a
hour to clear the track, and then a
the girls formed in line it was amusin
to see how each one began to move u
inch by inch to get the better of he
neighbor, who was also elbowing he
way to the front. It was finally agree
to run at the drop of a handkerchief
but when it fell several of the girls
who were busy arguing where their
places would be, did not se
it, and, consequently, the result wa
a very irregular and straggling start-
in fact, some did not move until sey
eral were half over the course. Th
result was that three who were in fron
and trying to pull each other back fel
down, and the rest of the line piled
over them promiscuously and treated
the crowd to a bristling array of stripes
stockings and pink garters, which wa
heartily applauded. They regained
their feet, however, and ran on. 1
crowd about ten deep were massed be
hind the rope which marked the end
of the course, and a number of staid old
gentlemen were considerablyastonished
when a bevy of handsome females cam
flying into their arms like a charging
squadron of bashful Bazouks. When
the elderly parties got knocked over
however, there were scores of youn,
men who were willing to take thei
places and run all risks. Four race
were run, to the intense amusement o
the crowd, and the following were the
successful competitors : Miss M. Sand
rock, first; Miss Kaiser, second; Mis
Martin, third ; Mrs. Dietz, fourth
The racing would have been much mor
enjoyable had the greensward of the
fields adjoining the ranch been chosen
instead of the confined and dusty space
near the pavilion, where the racing
was merely a scramble for first place.
THE GREASED POLE
Was an object of interest all day, and
the numberless youth of Carson ben
their well-directed efforts to attain the
point where they could grasp the prize
at the top. It was productive o
plenty of fun to the crowd to see a
boy make the attempt. The first ten
feet was child's play, and his comr
rades would shout encouragingly,
"That's the kind; Bill, you'll make it.'
Then the boy would strike the
greased section and suddenly slip a few
inches, whereupon he would wind his
legs round the pole like a snake, stick
his toes in the cracks and pull some
rosin out of his pocket, which he would
rub on the soles of his feet and between
his toes. Next, he would take off his
hat and rub the grease off the pole,
which was "so cussed smooth that a
fly would break his neck attempting to
scale it, even if it were ungreased. But
the grease could not be rubbed off with
a hat; the wood seemed to exude a sort
of perspiration of oil, and defied all
efforts. About twenty boys attempted
to master it, but failed ignominiously.
THE SLIPPERY PIG.
A black pig, cleanly shaven by a
leading barber of Virginia, was well
greased and turned loose on the grounds.
The porker immediately took possession
of the field, and dashed around among
the shrubbery at an unprecedented pace
even for an oiled pig. Whenever he
dashed through a picnic group, upset-
ting pitchers of lemonade and scatter-
ing sections of sugar-cured harm with
saucers of ice cream, and walked upon
fat old ladies, or floated like a zephyr
over the stomach of some sleeper who,
overcome by the seductive shade and a
frequency of beer, had stretched him-
self for a nap, it was indeed fun to wit-
nesS. Sometimes the crowd would get
him cornered andthrow themselves upon
him en masse, and 'for a few minute"
there would be a writhing he'ap
bodies-and the pig oh, where was h.
Knotiking over a gingerbread stll
twenty yards away j: another part3f
the grounds. He was finally tired o.,
and caught by a boy who took him o
the grounds. People who had coni
rear catching the animal could be dis-
tinguisihc by the oleaginous appear-
ance of their clothes,

all the early California sports. In 1855
they put up a big stone building on
Commercial street, and for ten years it
was the finest gambling house in the
United States. It was subsequently

The total receipts, including $100,000
boIrowed money, were 1.0 14.1.;5.1. The
avcragg yield of tho ore was $i8 (fjU per
ton. The cost of mining and milling
was $14 99, leaving a profit of 83 70 onm

wore, however, $3 10 per ton on this
ore, while the disbursements on ao-
count of the new Combination shaft
were $4 72 per ton, which, added to
the expenses, show a loss of $4 18 per

That Truckee Itailroad Committee.
The Truckee Republican of Saturday
says: The committee appointed by the
people to canvass Eastern Nevada and
obtain the sentiment of the residents
therein, will be nade most welcome,
and will meet with unexpected suc-
cess. The Virginia CIHRONlCr,-which
generally champions the rights of the
.aborer and citizens en masse,regardless
of the few monopolists-gives every
assurance desired, and, as will be
seen, one of the leading merchants of
Virginia City is positive that during
any ordinary season the whole amount
could be obtained, necessary to build
the road, in Virginia City. This is
really encouraging. We were undecided
as to the opinion of the residents of
Virginia, but knowing this matter to
be of more interest to them than our-
selves, we hoped to find them as the
CHRONICLE intimates, to a man favora-
ble. Our committee will visit the citi-
zens there just as soon as convenient,
and matters then can be very easily
discussed, the result of which cannot
fail to be very soon, "a people's rail-
road."
Mrs. Turner, the Street Fencer.
Mrs. Turner, the woman who was be-
fore the Police Court not long ago for
involving a section of Stewart street in
a fence squabble, again erected a fence
yesterday while the neighbors were off
at the Turners' picnic. To-day the
Street Commissioners tore it down.
Death of David Stearns.
David Stears, an old resident of
this city, died on Sunday evening of in-
flamation of the lungs. He was a na-
tive of England, fifty-two years old,
and leaves a wife and child. He was
buried by the Odd Fellows this after-
noon.

A gentleman who arrived from San

Why Buffer Dyspeptic Tortures,
WHEN the famous regulator of en-
feebled, acid or bilious stomachs, Hostetter's
Bitters, will care you? Could you read the tes-
timony of the myriads of dyspeptics whom it
has cured, though you might be of a skeptical
turn, you would be convinced. Evidence of its
efficacy is constantly multiplying, and this re-
lates not only to eases of dyspepsia, but also
liver complaint, constipation, urinary and
uterine troubles and malarial disorders. The

Coloiel \yellor, who is President of the
Crown oint mine, has examined into
ts affairs, the workings of the mills
and the general administration of the
Superintendent's office, and has found
everything in excellent order and proper
hape. Economy has been the rule in
every department, and a strict system
of checks has prevented any suspicion
of wron/gding in any Lrap.h ef its
business, in cheapness of purch'lses; reg-
ilarity of work, skill in the engineering
of levels, drifts, winzes and slopes, no
nine on the Comstock can show a
-*'aner record than theSuperintendent's

The Old Curry Cropplngs.
William Skyrme, an experienced
mining man, has made arrangements to
horoughly prospect the old Gould and
Curry works and croppings, to ascer-
ain their value. If ore is found in
efficient quantity to justify the outlay

ENVIOus rivals are endeavoring to make
the public believe that simply because Banner
Brothers' immense stock of Spring and Summer
Clothing is marked at prices that would ruin
any other clothing house in town, that the
goods arenot to be obtained at the marked
prices. The following telegram which Banner
Brothers received on Monday explains away the
mystery conne tod with the present low prices,
and also show the magnitude of the trans-
continental business this firm is car ying on :
NRtW YORK, July 30. 1877.
To Banner Bros Virgisin Cit Ie vada:
Sel your stock for the next th rty days at prices
regardless of cost. You mast make room for
the immense stock of Fall and Winter Clothing
for men, boys and children shippecd to you by
rail. Send similar instructions to our wholesale
house in San Francisco, corner of Sansome and
Market streets. BANNER BROS.,
122 and 124 Duane street, New York City.
The New York house of this firm manufac.
ture all of the clothing sold by the Virginia
City and ban Francico branch houses, which
enables them to sell at prices below other
houses, where a heavy manufacturer's profit
has to be added to the cost of all goods
Banner Brothers have the arrest store and the
largest stock of any house in the city, and any
one who doubts that their goods are not for
sale at the marked prices can best satisfy them-
selves by calling atBanner Brothers' corner of
