But the question which will occur to our minds is,'
how does Mr. Roberts dispose of the British at this'
'terrible'crisis. We have already seen that he iden.
tifies them with the merchants of Tarshish and
the. young lions thereof." To shew that they also
shall fall, he quotes, the following grand passage
from the Prophet Isaiah: The day of the Lord of
Hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and
lofty and upon every one that is lifted- up, and he
'shal' be brought low ....; and upon all THE
SHIPS OF TARSHISH, and upon all pleasant
pictures. And the loftiness of man shall be bowed
down, and the haughtiness of men shall be made low,
and the Lord alone shall be exalted in that day."

Again on the evening of July 26th was the Ber-
udian public favoured with a rich treat. On that
casion the Rev. Dr. Foggo delivered his second
ecture-subject, Tragedy in Shakspeare." So
rely are our senses greeted with anything ap-
oaching the production of the Revd. Gentleman
it we find if difficult, if not impossible, to'make
iy comment thereon.
Dr. Foggo prefaced his lecture by the remark
at as Tragedy was not Comedy, all jesting would
out of place, and consequently this lecture might
i tio didactic to please his audience, who might
nd it "dry." This "dryness" he begged them to
tribute considerably to the subject, as little as
possible to the lecturer himself, and the balance to
e weather, which had been dry" for some time.
We venture to say that no one had need to'sik a
ruse for what did not exist.
The Lecturer took as the typical tragic plays of
hakspeare, Lear, Macbeth, Hamlet and Othello,
peaking of them first collectively and then. analy-
ng them individually. He showed how Shaks-
eare was so true to Nature even in the most difficult
stations. 'We feel this when we come upon such
passages as Macbeth's reflections on the death of
is Queen. Surrounded by danger, harassed by
rental emotions, and engaged in all the active
reparations for a siege, yet when the news reaches
is-" The Queen, my Lord, is dead," his mind
or a few instants leaves its present troubles and
eems, to soliloquize with its inner self-
To-morrow and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time ;
And all .our yesterdays,have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle !
Life's but a walking shadow; a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing."
Again in the lament of Lear over the dead Cor-
elia, how appropriate are the simple words of the
ld King-
Why should a dog, a horse, a rat have life
And thou no breath at all! 0 thou wilt come no
Never, Never, Never, Never, Never." [more,
How natural it seems that Othello, struggling
ith his disgrace-his mind almost dethroned by
he tremendous blow given to his faith-should leap
backward over the chasm of affliction and alight on
ie bright and sunny side of his youthful days
hen no cloud oppressed his spirit. He allows
himself to wander in fancy over early scenes- o
0 now, forever,
Farewell the tranquil mind! farewell content,
Farewell the plumed troop and the big wars
That make ambition virtue 0, farewell!
Farewell the neighing steed, and the shrill trump,
The spirit-stirring drum, the ear-piercing fife,*
The royal banner; and all quality,
Pride, pomp and circumstance of glorious war !
And 0, you mortal engines, whose rude throats
The immortal Jove's dread clamours counterfeit,
Farewell! Othello's occupation's gone!"
This is a species of casuistry with which we are
[1 familiar. It is 'like the sleep with pleasant
reams which comes like balm to the exhausted
)ul though the hours before had been drenched in
misery.,' ... ,:. ,
Dr. Foggo went on to remark on the Actuality
f passion in Shakspetire. So grand was his con.
option that all the similes afforded by Nature
seemed, small--thunder and lightning, whirlwinds
caring breakers, all seemed insignificant in corm.
arison;with the multitudinous turbulent feeling
ver existent in the breasts of his heroes. Yel
hee was no extravagance. As we come on those
magnificent passages, set in their designed surround.
igs, we unhesitatingly accept them as real and noi
verdrawn. Only when we meet them detached d(
heir enormous proportions strike us with bewild.
rment." Even, said the lecturer, as the Phidiar
statue of Athena would have .appeared monrtrout
nd exaggerated on a street corner but was sim.
ly sublime with mountains for its background
nd the Heavens for its.eanopy.
Of the four tragedies, Lear is generally conceded
o be the finest, though we imagine it must be diffi.
ult to'form 'a judgment..
The remainder of the lecture was devoted to th<
analysis of the four Tragedies, which Dr. Fogg(
id in a masterly manner. We cannot afford spac(
o enter into minute details of his admirable analy.
is. Of course ;6ordeia came in for a large share
f appreciation, and her mournful end, necessitated
y the "fitness of things," received a due amount
f commiseration.
The character of Lady' Macbeth received particu.
ar attention from the Lecturer. He remarked thai
he was not as usually thought a masculine woman
ut simply woman, and a wife at that. She is gene.
ally represented as a dark dangerous looking fe
uale whereas the probability is that she was "faii
ith blue eyes and flaxen hair, being a Celt. Th<
ictuirer evidently believed more in sex than temper,
ment repeating the well known lines on woman,
"If she will she will you may depend on't
If she wont she wont and there's an end on't.'
That Lady Macbeth was more than simply woman
re think clear from such passages as the following
,here, after receipt of Macbeth's letter in which
here was nothing toinspire such thoughts, she says
Glamis thou art, and Cawdor; and shall be
What thou art promised:-Yet do I fear thy na
It is too full o' the milk of human kindness,
To catch the nearest way:

made to hold to his faith. Listen to his language
in reference to Disdemona: "
"Excellent wretch-! Perdition catch my soul -;
But I do love thee and whdn I love thee not
"Chaos is come again.
Proof after proof is unavailing to quench this
love or even to make.him believe in her deceit. He
identifies his wife's honor with his own and cannot
realize the suggestions of the tempter and when at
last the seeming truth is borne An upon his iineet
soul who does not pity the unnerved hero as he
"Had. it pleas'd Heaven *,
"To try me with affliction; had he rain'd
"All kinds of sores, and shames, on my bare head;
"Steep'd me in poverty to the very lips;
"Given to captivity me and my utmost hopes;
"I should have found in some part of my soul
"A drop of patience: but (alas!) to make me
A fixed figure, for the time of scorn ,. vmeo
"To point his slow unmoving finger at,-
"0 0 !"
Although the character of lago does not win ou
admiration, yet Shakspeare's delineation of
beyond criticism. Follow him through the wihol
play and watch how artfully he spurs Othello on
and then seems to try to check the fire he is so per-
sistently kindling, well knowing that thusg-be oh '
aggravates matters. How perfectly the poe'tnm a
him act doubly to both master and mistress.-;-ow
artfully he blinds Desdemona so that she even begs.
of him, her worst enemy, to reconcile her to her
lord 'or show her how to appease his unmerited
In Hamlet, said Dr. Foggo, we have an illustra-
tion of indicision. Hamlet was more of a thinker
than a doer. He was not a coward, yet he shrank
from doing what viewed, in the light of those days,
would have been the right.. He is ever speculating,
moralizing or philosophizing-which you, will.
When he hesitates to kill his uncle at the moment he
is praying lest he should go to heaven, we have an
instance of his lack of decision which lays hold of
the most trivial and absurd excuses for thewon-per.
formance of what he considered a duty. .,
Every one is acquainted with Haminlet's sliloquy
on the "Hereafter." The King's soliloquy-Aet
II., Scene III.-on the efficacy of prayer, is one, q
those sublime outbursts of Shakspeare wherein he
shews his deep respect for holy things.
But our notice of this lecture must come to an
Send. We have 'endeavored to reproduce in soMne
measure the train of thought followed by Dr. Fog-
go last Thursday evening, however imperfectly and
falteringly., Those who had the pleasure of listen.
ing certainly owe much to the lecturer for the maia
of instructive entertainment afforded them, andit
is to be hoped that this sketch, may at least fillthose
not so favored with regret for their loss.

nor Cerda Concha gave notice of the following
questions he wishes to ask the Minister of War
and Marine: Was he aware of the mutiny on
board one of the vessels of the Peruvian squad.
ron, and her arrival at a Chilian port on the 17th
ult.? Did he issue orders for the apprehension
of that vessel? and if not, what instructions did
be give the maritime authorities with reference
to her taking on board provisions and coals ?
On June 5. the Minister for Foreign Affairs
(senor Alfonso) replied to the interpellation of
enor Cerda, that the government was informed
by the Peruvian minister on the 8th ulto. of the
mutiny on board the Huascar. The government
in reply to the minister, declined to interfere with
her movements, she owning a political leader;
but she was refused permission to embark men,
arms, or amunitions, and only provisions and
water, to which was subsequently added an or.
der to leave Chilian waters within 24 hours.
This course was strictly followed out, the com-
mandant being refused at Caldera coal, oil and
rope. Senor Cerda censured the action of the
government, maintaining that the Huascar should
have been captured a a pirate. Senor Alfonso
presented the notes and telegrams passed on the
subject, which were read. From them it appeared
that the Peruvian minister desired the Chilian
government to arrest the vessel and deliver to Peru,
declaring at the same. time that she was not k
pirate, nor yet a vessel of the Peruvian government.
She belongnd to nobody, but ought to be Peru's
because she had been so formerly; and the crew
was outlawed with respect to the Peruvian gov-
ernmet.t, but not so with respect to that of Chile,
After these curious and contradictory papers were
read, senor Alfonso submitted that the government
could not have acted otherwise than it did, the
vessels not having been declared piratical,. and
flying the Peruvian flag. Senor Cerda sustained
his former opinion. He would not move a vote of
censure, bat would propose a resolution that would
serve as a guide in analogous cases-namely.
"That the House confides in the government
causing the maritime territory of the republic to
be respected, not permitting in it other naval for-
ces than those belonging to a friendly nation."
The motion was negatived with only one vote in

From the London Times, July 2.
It must not be. supposed that the war has reach-
ed its last stage merely because a great part of
the Russian army has crossed the Danube. The
invaders waited so long on the Roumanian bank
as to spread a suspicion that they feared to hazard
the risks of the passage, and thus it came to be
thought that their chief difficulties would be over.
come if they should reach Bulgaria. Quite possi.
bly, that idea would not have been far astray if
the river had been defended by German, French,
or English troops. Every available crossing place
would then have been strongly fortified; raids
would have been made on all the most formidable
points of attack; and the vigilance of the de-
fenders would have baffled the Russians to find
such an opening as they obtained at Sistova. But
even the best of troops could scarcely have held so
long a line as the Danube from Widdin to Matchin
against an army of nearly 300,000 men, and the
Turks have displayed more than their wonted neg-
ligence. They might easily have anticipated that
Galatz and Simniza would be points of attack, be-
cause beside them are tributary streams, in which
the Russians could leisurely prepare and keep from
view the materials of their bridges. But the
Turks took no special means to strengthen the op.
posite banks of the river or to destroy the boats
and the pontoons. German military critics are so
amazed by such negligence that they are said to
explain it by corruption. They recall, no doubt,.
the conviction -that in the campaign of 1828.9 the
capitulation of Varna was the result of treachery,
which the Russians handsomely recompensed. But
there is not the slightest need to suspect the Tur-
kish Commanders of such treason. Such as the
Turks were during their two last wars with Rus.
sia, such they are still. With all their soldierly
qualities, they are unequal to any task demanding
constant vigilance and forethought throughout a
long period of suspence. They have been out-
generalled because they are averse from taking
But, now that they have to fight instead of
taking speculative precautions, their real powers
will come into play. They are said to have again
attacked the Russians near Sistova, and in all pro-
bability we have begun a week of terribly destruc-e
tive fighting. The invaders will doubtless be suc-
cessful, because the Turks cannot have on the line
of the Danube much more than half as many
troops as the immense mass of Russians who will
have crossed the stream in a few days. We may
assume that some of the Turkish regiments will be
driven toward the interior of Bulgaria, and that
the rest will be shut into the fortresses, which will

then be closely invested. The sieges of past cam-

paigns will be repeated, with this difference, that
the preparations of the Russians are incomparably
better than they were on any former occasion.
But there is no sufficient reason to suppose that
the contest will be of the short and sharp nature
of which the chief example was in the Franco-
German war. It is nearly impossible to deal a
speedy succession of blows in a country almost
destitute of railways and with wretched roads.
The immense train of artillery necessary in mo-.
dern warfare can be moved but slowly, and sup-
plies of every kind must be sent from the northern
side of the Danube. If, therefore, the Turks dis-
play their usual bravery and even passable intelli-
gence, we may find in the Peninsular War a bet-
ter type of the contest than in the short and sharp
scientific campaigns of recent years. The Sultan's
Generals might prolong the fight until next year if,
so far as circumstances would permit, they were to
imitate the tactics by which Wellington gave the
first great blow to the power of Napoleon by draw.-
ing Massena into a corner of Portugal, by forcing
him to exhaust his strength on the impregnable
lines of Torres Vedras, and then compelling him to
make a long retreat through a wasted and hostile
country. A large part of the Russian army will be
occupied in the siege of Widden, Ructchuk, and
Silistria. Another portion will be occupied in the
investment of Kustendji and Varna, which must be
closely sealed to prevent the Turks from throwing
reinforcements behind the Russian line of march.
From the obstinacy and success with Which they
are defending Batoum, we may conjecture how
formidable a task will be the siege of Varna, into
which supplies can be poured by sea, and which
has recently been strengthened on the side of the
land. The great fortified camp of Shumla must
also be invested, even if it should not be attacked.
Writing before the Danube had been crossed at
Simnitza, our Special Correspondent at Bucharest,
pointsout that such a movement as the Russians have
already made would cut into halves the quadrila-
teral of Rustchuk, Silistria, Shumla .and Varna.
No doubt, that is true, and the blow might-have
pronounced f#tal to any possibility

victory: but, as the utmost the Porte can reason-
ably expect is delay, it' is of less importance so long,
as it defends its fortresses.
All the siege operations would, moreover, re-
quire so many men that the invaders would be for-
tunate if they could still send a large army through
the passes or round the spurs of the Balkans. No
doubt they can pass that barrier. As our Bucharest
Correspondent points out, they may avoid the chief
physical difficulties if Austria should be so compla.
cent as to let them cross the Danube above Widdin
for Midhat Pasha when he was Governor of that
place, constructed an admirable road to Sofia. It
is said to be so firm that a railway track could be,
.laid along it with little trouble. By using that
route the Russians could turn'the line of the Bal-
kans, and. compel the garrison of Shumla to fall
back on Adrianople. Our Correspondent adds some
interesting facts which tend to show that, even if
the Russians attempt the mountains, they may find
the way'less difficult than it is usually supposed to
be. On elevated tablelands of the range live Bul-
garian refugees who, it-seems, keeps the Turks at
bay, and who would welcome the deliverers of their
race. Their aid w puld; be the more valuable be-
cause they are said -to be acquainted with passes
unknown to the Turks themselves. At all events,
we may assume that, after the investment of the
fortresses, the Balkans wouldin time ;be crossed, if
not without difficulty, at least without serious dan-
ger. But the Turks could cause much delay by the
most ordinary skill and firmness; and even if the
mountain chain lay behind the victorious army, the
next part of the campaign might easily be made by
far the most formidable. It is there that the Otto-
man commanders might, to some extent, repeat the
tactics of Wellington. Laying waste the. country,
and avoiding battles except when they occupied com- .
manding positions, they could meanwhile throw up
a series of works in front of Constantinople. They
might have made another Torres Vedras of the pen-
insula on which it is built if they had begun to
throw up lines of fortifications so soon as they were
threatened with war. A hundred thousand men
might be sent in yain against even an imperfect set
of works on a neck of land so admirably adapted for
purposes of defence. The capabilities of it were long
ago pointed out -by Count Moltke, and the Turks
have received, innumerable warnings to fortify it
since the outbreak of the disturbance in Herzego-
vina. They have recently been erecting some
works, and even now it is not too late for them to
repair their neglect. Thus, even if the Russians
were to threaten Constantinople, the Turks could
single.handed mike the siege of it incomparably
the most formidable task of the whole war. But in
all probability the Russians will never attempt to
go so far. Political considerations will prompt them
to keep away from a city with which so many real
or supposed European as well as Ottoman interests
are bound up; or the Turks themselves may be so
disheartened by defeat that weeks before the Rus.
sians could reach the capital they may sue for peace
and thus bring the European Powers diplomatical.
ly into the field to take care of their own interests.
But it is not likely that the Turks will accept the
penalties of defeat until all their first lines of de.
fence shall have been destroyed or rendered useless,
and it will take a considerable time even for an im.
mense army to perform such a feat. If they show
as much tenacity in Europe as they are displaying
in Asia, the crossing of the Danube will prove to
have been only the first link in a long chain of dif-.
ficult operations, exhausting to Russia even if de.
structive to Turkey. Had the Porte a great Gen-
eral or a united people, the issue of the campaign
might even now bei'oubtful."
Since the above was put in type we have received
the Cablegram confirming the news of the passage
of the Cossacks an# of their having been driven

Extra Bermuda Royal Gazette.

Hamilton, August 2, 1877.

Arrival of the Packet Excelsior.
The Packet Excelsior, Captain Mayor, arrived
early this morning from New York. She left
the City on Saturday the 21st, but not the Bay til
Wednesday last.
We are indebted to Captain Mayor and Mr.
Steward Wilson for files of the New York Herald
of the 23rd ult.
The very important news these papers supply,
we lay before our readers in an Extra.

The Excelsior brought an English mail.
The C. G. Berger, with English mails also arrived
to-day. She lelt New York on the 19th ult.

The Army and Navy Gazette of July 7th says :
87th Fusiliers-It has now been generally decid-
ed to bring home the regiment on an early date
from Bermuda."
46th Regt.-Captain Disney-Roebuck is about to
be appointed to the Adjutancy of the 1st Royal
Middlesex Militia.
Sir Colman M. O'Loghlen, M. P. for County Clare,
Ireland, is dead.

England's Preparations.--The Standard publishes
the following prominently :-" We are informed
that orders have been received at Aldershot for the
Second, Eighth and Sixteenth Regiments to em-
bark for foreign service on Wednesday and the
Nineteenth and One Hundredth Regiments will be
held in readiness for immediate embarkation. Our
military correspondent states that these troops will
go to Malta."
At Aldershot.--A special from Aldershot says the
Second Battalion of the Second Regiment and the
Second Battalion of the Thirteenth Regiment are
to be held in readiness to embark on Thursday and
Friday respectively. Portions of the Ninety-eighth
and Sixty-fourth will also embark during the week.
Women and children are not to accompany the re-
giments as usual. The Seventeenth Lancers, who
were about to quit their camp for Leeds, are order-
ed to remain.
The Gallipoli Rumor.-The Standard in a leader
says the rumors circulating yesterday relative to
the despatch of expeditionary forces to Gallipolis
were very much exaggerated. What has really been
decided is that the garrisons of Gibraltar and Malta
shall be immediately reinforced. This decision is
meant to indicate that England is watching events
in the East with something more than anxiety.
England has hitherto stood aloof from the war, re-
solvtd upon honourably maintaining her attitude
of neutrality. From that resolution she would not
have departed had the campaign been confined
within the limits of the Czar's original proclamation.
But England's forbearance has a limit. Even
should it ultimately become necessary to send a
British force to protect Constantinople from falling
into Russian hands the government could not
shrink from the responsibility without betraying its
Are these facts ?-A Portsmouth despatch to the
Press Association says men have been working on
troopships all Sunday. It is reported that 500
troops will be despatched in the Euphrates on
Thursday next for an unknown destination and
that 1,500 more will follow on Friday in the troop-
ship Crocodile.
English Press Sentiment.-The Russian progress
has created some political excitement in England.
Those who advocate intervention in an anti-Rus-
sian sense were urgent for an immediate declaration
of the Ministerial policy. The Economist, in a well
considered article under the caption, Shall We
Occupy Gallipoli ? opposes such a measure on the
ground that nothing in the present situation justi-
fies a departure from the original declaration of
of neutrality ; that Germany and Austria are equal-
ly interested with England in keeping Constanti-
nople out of Russian possession, and that England
should await their action or overtures for common
action; that English interests are not indissolubly
bound up with the possession or non-possession of
Constantinople by any particular Power; lastly, that
England's paramount interest in the Eastern ques-
tion lies in the maintenance of an open road to In-
dia. To defend this may some day tax her power
to the utmost. She should not waste her strength
on any object not intimately and immediately as-
sociated with it.
What Germany will do.-The Post's Berlin des-
patch says the Presse states that in the event of
disturbances in Constantinople the German fleet in
the Levant is instructed to act energetically for the
protection of German interests in the East and no
less so for the interest of Russians remaining in
Turkey under the protection of Germany.
Ireland wins the Elcho Shield.-At the Wimbledon
meeting yesterday the Elcho Shield, was won by
the Irish Team by a large number of points. The
highest possible score was 1,800. Ireland scored
1,568; England, 1,464, and Scotland, 1,439.
The Lords and Commons Match. The match
between the members of the House of Lords and
Commons was won by the Lords. The score was:
-Lords, 404; Commons, 375. The highest pos-
sible score was 500. I
The Kolapore Cup.-In the shooting for the Ko-
lapore Cup, at 200, 500 and 600 yards, the score of
the English team aggregated 608 and that of the
Canadian team 586.

Beaconsfield will not Yield.-In the House of
Lords yesterday afternoon Earl Beaconsfield ex-
plained that the appointment of Mr. T. Pigott as
Controller of the Stationery Office was made on
grounds of efficiency. He said that Mr. Pigott's
resignation had been placed in his hands, but for
reasons of high public duty he was bound not to
accept. It will be remembered that the House of
Commons lately censured the appointment of Mr.
Pigott rather sharply on the ground of its tendency
to impair the efficiency of the civil service.
When the Session will Close.-In the House of
Commons Sir Stafford Northoote, Chancellor of
the Exchequer, in reply to a question by the Mar-
quis of Hartington, said that he hoped to close the
session of Parliament about the 12th of, August.
Captain Crapo and his wife in their whale-boat
'New Bedford," arrived at Mount Bay, Cornwell,
England, on the 22nd ult.


All That Id Left Them.-"4'he Turks still mains
tain their communication with the forts upon the
islands of Pyrgos and Parapan, but the Russian-
have now changed front and it matters to them
very little how many guns there are in these forts.
The Russians investing Rustchuk are well provi.
ded with supplies and ammunition. Indeed, their
communication with their base of supplies on the
north side of the Danube are now amply satisfac-
A Brisk Campaign.-" Whatever apathy the Rus-
sians may have affected to manifest heretofore, evi.
deuces are seen on every hand that from this day
forward the campaign is to be actively prosecuted.
There are reasons for this spirited policy which I
am not at liberty to state, but which may be sur-
mised. The Czar no longer manifests any impati-
ence; the Grand Duke Nicholas appears more re-

solute and self-confident than he has since the
troops crossed the Pruth.
I Reinforcements for Nicholas.-'" On my return from
Timova, where I remained until Thursday morning,
I met at various points and at Sistova the four
army corps which are going forward to reinforce
the Russian main body at Timova. Reaching Sis-
tova, I fortunately found a body of cavalry setting
out along the river road, on the southern bank, in
the direction of Rustchuk, and, joining them, I
was able by dint of hard riding to reach the Rus-
sian investing line, after which, risking a crossing
in a small boat and towing my horse behind, I
gained he Giurgevo road, on the north bank, and
in a few \bcurs was in that town, whence the railway
is in constant operation to this city.
Rustchu Must Fall.-" The general impression is
that an attempt will be made early this week to
carry a certain weak spot in the defences of Rus-
tchuk by storm. Two divisions, belonging to four
corps previously mentioned, are at Sistova under
orders to march at a moment's notice and their
destination in my opinion is Rustchuk."
Seizure of the Schipka Pass.-The account of Gen-
eral Gourkha's dash across the Balkans, telegraph-
ed a few days ago, is confirmed by the following
Russian official account of the operations in the Bal-
kans, dated Tirnova. July 19, which says :-"Schip-
ka Pass was taken to-day and occupied by regi-
ment, with two guns. On the 17th inst. General
Gourks, after an engagement in which he lost 207
in killed and wounded, occupied Kasanlik and the
village of Schipka."
Russian Repulse near Jeni Saghre.-A special des-
patch from Constantinople says :-"' Adrianople te-
legrams state that Rachuf Pasha defeated the Rus-
sians on Friday and drove them behind Jeni Sagh-
ra with a loss of 3,000 men. Abdul Kerim and
Redif Pachas have arrived at Constantinople."
Suleiman to the Front.-An Adrianople despatch
says eighteen thousand of Suleiman Pasha's men
have left for Jambolie, and the remainder, with
Suleiman himself, will leave between now and
Thursday next. The fortifications at Adrianople
have been completed, and will be armed in the
course of a week.
Not for Midhat.-A Constantinople despatch,
dated Saturday, soys the imperial yacht Izzedin
has left Constantinople with sealed orders. It is
reported she has gone to bring back Midhat Pacha.
A despatch from Malta last night, however, says
the Izzedin arrived there with despatches for the
Turkish Consul, and afterward proceeded to Crete.


VIRGINIA AND PENNYSYLVANIA, originating, it would
would seem, in a strike for wages. It commenced
about the 18th July by the workmen on the Balti-
more and Ohio Railroads, and not till the 22nd was
anything like peace restored to Baltimore.
A collision took place at Baltimore between the
rioters and the militia (6th Regt.) when marching
from its armory along Baltimore street to Camden
station to proceed to Cumberland, the regiment was
stoned and fired into by the crowd on the street.
The regiment returned the fire, and a number were
killed and wounded. Eight dead bodies were tak-
en to the Middle Distriet Station, and a number of
wounded, six or seven, to various drug stores. Se-
veral women were reported shot.
At Pittsburg on the 21st another collision oc-
curred between the rioters and the militia, the lat-
ter being ordered to clear the track; the mob fired
upon and stoned the militia. After a few seconds
the militia fired into the crowd, inflicting severe
punishment, killing 6 and wounding 11. All the
available sailors and marines are ordered from Nor-
folk to Washington.
The President issued a proclamation on the 21st
ordering the insurgents to disperse. It was also'
proposed in Washington to declare Maryland, West
Virginia and Pennsylvania in a state of siege and.
call out 75,000 volunteers.
The March Out.-At twenty minutes to four
o'clock the Philadelphia troops left the Union De-
pot for the scene of disturbance at the Twenty-
eighth street crossing, marching out along the
track and preceded by the Sheriff and his posse.
Expecting to fail in an effort to disperse the strik-
ers, the bSheriff would endeavour to make arrests
and call upon the military for the required assist-
ance. This was understood to be the plan of action
determined upon and a conflict was expected.
They arrived at Twenty-eighth street shortly be-
fore five o'clock.
The Black Hussars Repulsed.-The railroad tracks
at that point being completely blocked with strik-
ers, the Black Hussars, of Philadelphia, were or-
dered to clear the railroad crossing, but, not being
able to do so, another company was ordered to
their assistance.
A Deadly Fire.-The military advanced with
fixed bayonets, but were met with a shower of
stones and missiles from the crowd. They opened
fire on the crowd indiscriminately and in rapid
succession. The crowd retreated towards East Li-
berty. At half-past five o'clock the crossing was
in possession of the military. Every few minutes
the crowd would be panic stricken and a stampede
would take place.
Another Attack Feared.-The terrible results of
the volley have caused intense excitement through-
out the city, and it is feared another attack will be
made on the military as soon as the mob can be re.
organized and provided with ammunition.
Johnson's and Brown's gun factories completely

Three pieces of ordnance belonging to Knapp's
Battery have been captured, but so effective was
the fire of the military that the rioters were pre-
vented using them.
The police are powerless and a great force of
them has been pushed aside.
Several volleys have been fired from the round
house by the military and a number of persons
were killed.
Sheriff Fife's dead body has been brought in
from the outer depot.
Major-Gen. Pearson, in command of the troops,
is badly wounded.
Strong bodies of Troops are centering in Balti-
more and Philadelphia.
A train of 35 or 40 cars, laden with crude oil,
(300 or 400 bls.) were consumed.
At Pittsburgh the people turned against the
riots as they were not confining themselves to the
destruction of rail-way property alone.
Sixty one' persons were killed and 149 persons
