ADMIRAL SIR COOPER KEY.

Mr. James Gordon Bennett, the proprietor of the
New York Herald, who has been absent from Ame-
rica since his affair with his intended brother-in-
law, Mr. Fred May, has published a card mention-
ing his intention to leave Paris for home on the 3rd
June, and that on his arrival in New York "the
public will be informed of the details of the event
connected with the duel, so far as they may be in-
THE DERBY has been won by General Peel's colt
Sefton, Insulaire was second, Childeric third. I
The colt Sefton, who was almost unknown to
fame until last April, when he won the City and
Suburban stakes at Epsom on Wednesday last de-
feated Insulaire, one of the favorites, by only a
length and a half. Count Lagrange, the owner of
the latter, can afford to rest on his laurels. To
have won the French Derby five times, and to have
carried off, successively, in 1865, with Gladiateur,
the "blue ribbon of the turf" at Epsom, and the
St. Leger stakes, are achievements which few turf-
men have equalled. The Count might have again
won the Epsom Derby with Insulaire, but as that
horse came in first at the French Derby on Sunday,
and had to cross the channel in the interval, it is
clear that the odds were somewhat againstther,.
An annual return Cricket Match was played on the
Naval Cricket Ground, Somerset, on Thursday the 6th

and the Warwick Club. The "Mozart's Favorite"
Band was in attendance and discoursed sweet music at
intervals. Particular attention was drawn to the bowl- .
ing of T. Robinson and S. B. Trott, of the Amateur
Club, who exhibited striking proof of their proficiency in
this popular pastime; and we hope that the science of
this particular part of the game may be cherished by t
them, so as to enable them to be always successful
competitors. Having approached sunset the stumps
were agreeably drawn, leaving the latter with a score of i
21 runs and 3 wickets to fall. The result of the day's
proceedings will be shown by the following score :
Amateurs-1st innings, 54; 2nd innings, 67.
Warwick Club-lst innings, 57. g

THE PEACE CONGRESS.
The negotiations of months have got so far as to
render the meeting of the international Congress
certain. The invitations have been issued by Ger-
many and accepted by all the Powers to which they
are addressed for the 13th instant. The Treaty of
San Stefano, and the older treaties whose provisions
it so greatly supplants, are to be before the Con-
gress for revision. Great Britain has won the point
she so strenuously contended for, and Russia has
had to yield. The San Stefano treaty, goes to the
Congress without any binding effect, and without
any reservations by Russia to accept or decline the
modifications the Congress may be disposed to
make in it. In this way the Czar has surrendered
the two positions he at different times has
taken with respect to this Treaty. Turkey has put
in her protest against it, asserting that its condi-
tions are too harsh and were only accepted to avoid
the threatened capture of Constantinople. There
is nothing very unusual in this, as the terms im-
posed by the conqueror on the vanquished are sel-
dom pleasant and easy. It is not fully or certainly
known what understanding between Russia and
England has been reached. The London papers
publish abstracts of the concessions made by Rus-
sia from her original demands, and these while
important, still leave great advantages to Russia.
It has always been conceded that she was to gain
some advantages by her victorious war against
Turkey, and England must be satisfied that her
claims, as reduced, do not insist on more than pro-
per compensation or she would not agree to the
Congress. The importance of its deliberations is
shown by the fact that both Lords Beaconsfield and
Salisbury are to represent England. Prince Gorts-
chakoff, though scarcely convalescent from his late
illness, has expressed his purpose to be present, and
he is to be assisted by Count Schouvaloff whose
mediation made the Congress practicable. It was
expected at first that by preliminary agreements,
its work would be cut and dried, and its sessions
would only occupy one or two days, but the later
expectation is that two weeks will be required to
complete its labours. Great confidence is felt that
it will treat the Eastern Question broadly and
fairly, and with proper regard for the rights and
interests of all the Powers concerned. That it will
satisfy all is hardly probable, but its meeting is
hailed as a great relief to the suspense which has so
long existed, and those who should know most
about it, expect that its conclusions will make peace,
for the present at least, secure.
19TH REGIMENT.-Brevet Major Morgan, Garri-
son Instructor at Manchester, obtains the majority
vacant by the retirement of Major Anderson, retir-
ed on a pension.
46TH REGIMENT.-The Curragh correspondent of
the Irish Times says :-" Capt. Kitchener has pro-
ceeded from the Curragh to England on short leave
of absence. He vacates his appointment as Garri-
son Instructor at the Curragh Camp on July 30."
From Bermuda we (Standard) hear that the ships
now retained there for coast defence, namely, the
turret ship Scorpion and the armour-plated gun-
boats Viper and Vixen, have been taken in hand at
the dockyard, and are being thoroughly repaired
for active service. This defensive force will be fur-
ther strengthened by the turret ship Wivern as soon
as she is out of the hands of Messrs. Laird, at Bir-
kenhead.-Army and Navy Gazette, May 18.
Up to the present date the Reserve men are still
wanting their outfits, and commanding officers say
that it is quite impossible to get any satisfactory
replies from the Army Clothing Depot, notwith-
standing that the Horse Guards' authorities have
done their utmost to hurry matters along.
The Eurydice had settled 9 feet, and her lee ports
were level with the sand. The number of bodies

Rear-Admiral De Horsey remained at Panama in
the Shah on April 21. He had sent the Osprey
from that place to cruise on the Nicaraguan coast,
trouble being anticipated, and protection of Brit-
ish interests being possibly needed.
THE HALIFAX FISHERY AWARD.-The Senate has
adopted the concurrent resolution which authorizes
the Executive Department of the Government to pay
the Halifax award, if after the correspondence with
the British Government that course shall be deemed
necessary to good faith. The Senate has therefore
made sure-for the House will undoubtedly take the
same action-both that there will be no doubt about
prompt payment of a debt of honor, and that this
award will not be taken in the future as a basis for
calculating the difference between the priviliges mu-
tually granted by the Treaty of Washington. Indeed,
by an amendment which Mr. Edmunds offered, the
Senate has already expressed the opinion that these
privileges should be withdrawn as soon as the provi-
sions of the treaty will permit. The debate showed a
strong feeling on the part of many Senators against
any action which might be interpreted as showing re-
luctance to submit to the verdict of an arbitration,
simply because that verdict was not in our favor.-N.
Y. Tribune, June 5.
LONDON, June 3.-Gray, the alleged forger, was
brought up to-day in the Bow Street Police Court
on the' documents upon which the warrant of extra-
dition was granted in 1876. He asked whether
each charge against him should not be especially
designated in the extradition order, so that he
might not be tried for any offence not so named.
Judge Ingham said that was a matter-for diploma-
tic arrangement between the two governments.
Gray declared that the forged bonds, which he is
charged with uttering, simply came into his pos-
session in the course of his business as a broker,
but he would reserve his defense. Judge Inghamn
then made an order for Gray's extradition in the
usual form, and the prisoner was recommitted for
the statutory period. The woman with whom
Gray lived here, was at the Bow Street Police
Court during to-day's proceedings. Her name is
Balfe, and the police-court reporters say she is
Gray's wife and a daughter of the composer, Balf;
but both of these statements are probably untrue.
THE TOWER CLOCK.
OTTAWA, May 4.-The clock for the lower tower on
the Parliament Buildings arrived here to-day. It is
from the establishment of Mr. M. F. Dent, London,
England, and is a marvel of workmanship. It is what
is termed an eight-day turret clock to strike the hours
only on a bell of about a ton weight, and to show the
time on four seven-feet-nine-inch dials. The figures
are gilt, as are also the minute marks, the hands, and
the other circle. The ground of the dials are blue.
The mechanism is described by the maker in the fbl.
owing terms :-" A train gravity remontoise to let off
the hands every thirty seconds, double three-legged
gravity escapement, compensated zinc and iron pendu-
um, with a bob of three hundred pounds weight, de-
gree plate regulating dial in proper provision for
reporting the time by means of a galvanic battery at
wo or more hours daily, steel wire lines all complete
and ready for fixing." The maker guarantees that
he clock will not vary more than five seconds per

which he har d,F.cended ; and yet he gives himself
airs as if he were under the conviction that be is
still the evnosure of all observers.
There is no need to seek among Mr. Gladstone's
political opponents for witnesses in support of this
estimate of his career. His own followers-at least
a moit-tv of them-rre ashamed of him, annd leave
him on the march to Coventry without lending him
their countenance, tins reversing the position of
Falstaff and his raced ieAiment. And vet Mr.
Gladstone is not altogether foisaken. It would be
strange indeed if n generation which supplies
enthusiastic amir ro nof t.no t.r-,leman nnow lan-
quishing in peral setviir1il, enuld not spare a few
sympathizei s wih ithe fall,-n leader of a great party.
There are such generous souls, and let us speak of
them with respect. There is a spark of chivalry in
the loyally of even an Oitonite, and there is some-
thing touching in the simplicity of the few who are
still faith fl to Mr. Gladstone. We cannot blame
them, for plausibility is ev(r irresistable with those
who are themselves without guile, and even Joseph
Surface in the "School for Scandal" hid not a
happier knack of uttering "noble sentiments" than
has the object of their adoration-the centre of a
circle, even though it should be a small one, of
I But Mr. Glhdstone's adulators do not care, some-
bow, to individualize themselves. They can sing
bis praise in chore us, the responsibility bein thereby
divided, but the soloists do not like their theme.
It requires no great amount of courage to make one
of a deputation to present an address, unt he must
be a bold man who would venture to harangue an
assemblage of average Englishmen in defence of
Mr. Gladstone's conduct. Certain it is that no
Glanstonite has ventured to contest any recent
election, and the only chance for a Liberal candi-
date has been found to lie in making it perfectly
clear that lie does not belong to the section which
has faith in the deposed lender. Mr. Grey, the Li-
beral candidate for South Northumberland, saved
himself from defeat if he did not secure his election
by telling the voters that "in his opini n Mr.
Gladstone's conduct had been neither fcr the good
of his county nor for his own benefit." Anything
r.ore severe could not be said ly an enemy. The
Fting of the r' maik lies in its truthful accuracy;
and yet we cannot c(m1liment Mr. Gray on his
havir g uttered it. Ile should have left it to some
one el.e to touch Lis leader on the raw. Still, we
owe him a crtain amount of gratitude, for it saves
P grcat deal of trouble when one's antagonist's turn
their arms on each other. The South Northumber-
land clectii.n was remarkaLle for one other thing
than the tie in which it ended. The constituency
was absolutely unanimous in its condemnation of
Mr. Gladstone. And yet the victim has no cause
to complain, for he is only paid in the same coin
which lie has been uttering. Evwy word he has
spoken in ppoFsition to I.oid TE r.(coi'G"'f1 has been
in vilification of his own former leaders and com-
patiiots Nfr their policy in opposing Russia

and Lord Palmnerston, and now in his living death

The j.ro(ss by which Mr. Gladstone has been
fund out is c.ne well known to the police force.
It is a maxit. in Scotland-yatd, that whenever the
cry of stop thief is taiied, it is well to keep an
fee on the one who slots the loudest and runs the
htlrdest. W1ll, Mr. Gladstone made a treat noise
about the ntr(cities in Pulgaiia, and did no: hesi-
talte to point to his fucressois as al-ettors of the
cullitits, merely because tl ey didi not join loudly in
the hue aird ciy; but hecn pc-.lLe Legan to recover
th, ir (qumitinity, tl.ey saw that the state of affairs
in Tlgaria was bqueathed to the present Gov(rn-
tientt 1y their predecessors in ffice--that, in short,
the very man who shout.ned the loudest was the chief
dAlii-qucnt. M1r. Gladstone was a laity to the
original treaty of 1856, as well as to its modifica-
tion in 1871, and it was thrr.ulh a culpable neglect
of the duties thrown ,pon- him by these treaties
that tl.e ptics

wination not to face his Greenwich constituents at

rust be tested by the event. Although there is a
homely proverb which says that "it's good to be
off with the old love before you be on with the
new," it is a fact that the first stage of the process
is more easily accomplished than at last. It is to
be hoped, however, that he will not be left out
altogether, for it has been remarked of late that it
is only out of doo.rsthat he indulges in praise of
Russian philant.ropby ; and that be knows better
than to put in the shape of a motion the substance
of two or three hours' oration before a sympathetic
audience. The Gladstonian policy is to be found
eveiywheie exceptt in. parliamentary speeches. By
all means, then, let us hope that he may get a

THE INDIAN EXPEDITIONARY FORCE.
The Times correspondent at Calcutta, telegraph-
ing on the 28th ult., asserts that as an experiment
of State policy the despatch of native troops to Eu-
rope has proved successful beyond the hopes of even
the most ardent advocates of the measure. He
says :-" The native soldiers appear, indeed, com-
pletely captivated by the prospect of being engaged
in military sern ice in Europe. The fact is-though
hitherto it has not been sufficiently realized-that
the native army is now composed of very different
elements from those of which it was formed prior to
the mutiny. The old Bengal army was almost en-
tirely recruited from high-caste men, who were for-
bidden by their religion to cross the sea, and who,
naturally, therefore, showed intense reluctance, if
called upon, to fight out of India. The present
army is, on the contrary, to a great extent recruited
from the Sikhs, Pathans, and Punjaub Mussulmans
-all enlisted for general service and shackled by
little or no caste prejudice. These are men to whom
fighting is as the breath of their nostrils, and who
have been for a long time chafing under the severe
restraints imposed upon their bellicose instincts by
The prospect, therefore, which has now been open-
ed out to them of being employed in active service
under conditions of honor and confidence, to which
the native soldier is keenly sensible, has awakened
a spirit of emulous enthusiasm showing that Eng-
land possesses in India a reserve of military
strength of which, till now, she appeared hardly
conscious. This reserve, if scientificallyorganized,
is capable of raising rJ.ia,r1 to a first-cla3s mili-
tary Power, were it only from mere strength of
numbers. It is stated that not only the actual na-
live soldiers, bnt the classes from which they are
gel.crally recruited, are manifesting the greatest
cagerness to take part in the war, Commanding
oflicer's have reported to the Government that regi-

WHAT -MAKES SUCCESS.
In business life two things are essential to suc-
cess. First, sound judgment, seebnd, activity. In
all departments we find a greater deficiency in judg-
ment than in other requisites.
Long fatiliiarity in a given department does not
i.ecessarily produce it, though this will undoubtedly
aid and striengrthen it. Only by reliance on oneself,
anid feeling individually responsible for the results
of action founded on one's own efforts, can the fact
be established of good or bad judgment. Special
talent \\ill not furnish it, for a man may have capaci-
ty for acquit ing information, may be able to enter
into learned discussions on supply or demand, may
have vast knowledge of productions, their sources of
su; ply, and their various uses, and sill lack tbo
aliliiy to apply to practical and every-day use the.
bent fits of such information. So also one may be-
come familiar with all the details of business
though l.ng experience in the service of others,
and "s a servant, or in an executive capacity, umak-
ing himself invaluable without ever realizing the
responsibility attached to individual discretion or
judgement. In this belief we find an answer to the
oft-rpeated inquiry, why so large a portion of bus-
iness muen are unsuccessful ? To claim that so many
fail to meet fair success through force of 'adverse
eircumd-arnces beyond control, only calls for the
second thought, why are they not able to control
circumstances instead of permitting circumstances
to control them? Men who have the capacity to
comprehend the whole question presented to them,
to properly weigh not only the side of success but
of failure, and who understand the importance of
right thinking and the full penalty of mistake, are
tlie ones who succeed ; aud whether they get credit
for having good judgment or not they certainly
'Physical activity, unless under constant control
of this superior direction, may end in signal defeat.
Hence, we say first of all, use the head, and having
once defermin ied a course of action, turn all physi-
cal force to the end ct accomplishing thework in
band. Judgment and activity are partners, and
if each is made to fulfill its part well, and the indi-
vidual lealizesthatthe ailureofoneinvolves both,
that each mistake lessens self-confidence and reli-
ance, and may affect other endeavors yet to come,
it will stimulate deeper thought and better judg-
ment, and insure success.-San Frantcisco Grocer.
A gay young woman, good-looking and well
connected, married Lord de la Zouche, and three
rnontLs afterward committed the i:, fil'e folly of
running off with another nobleman, the Earl of
Mayo, a mere boy, scarce nineteen. They went off
to Pai.ris together, and made no response to the plea
for divorce which Lord de 1- Zouche at once put in.
Their wicked freak had a fearful termination.
With a shocking suddeness the madness of frenzy
fell on the oung Earl of Mayo, and his horrified
mother was obliged to seek him out and conduct
him to an insane asylum. He was so frantic that
the company controlling the channel boats refused
him a passage, and the wretched mother had to
cross with him in a freight vessel. Meantime the
foolish young creature who had ruined her social
ptoipects forever by her folly nowv finds her-
selt reduced almost to starvation. Her lover is
mad, and, of course, cannot help her; her former
husband is about to marry again, and, of course ,
will do nothing for her, and her own family, who
have repud ated her openly, are also poor, and
cannot help her if they would. Talk about your

ITHE NEv BHI. OP OF NEWFOUNI)L \ND.
At Sr. Paul's Cathedral, on Sunday, Apiil 28th,
the Arclbishop of Canterbury, assisted by the
Bishops of London, Hereford, and (late) New-
foundland, consecrated the Rev. Llewellen Jones,
Rector of Little Hereford, near Tenbury, to the
bishopric of Newfoundland, vacant by the resigna-
tion of Bishop Kolly, after holding it for a very
short lime, thouiih he had long acted as coadjutor
to Bishop Field, who held it for more than 30
years, only once leaving it. The usual procession
was formed at 11 o'clock at the end of the Cathe-
dral, and the Primate, attended by the Rev. H.
M. Spooner and his Chaplain, Mr. J. Hassard, Mr.
Knyvett, and Mr. H. W. Lee, at once proceeded to
the communion table, his train being borne by a
chorister. His Grace said the communion office,
the epistle being read by the Bishop of Hereford,
and the Gospel by the Bishop of London. The
preacher was Prebendary Bullock, Secretary of
the Society for the Probagation of the Gospel, who
took for his text Zachariah iv., 6. The service
then proceed in the usual manner, the new prelate,
who was presented by the Bishops of London and
Hereford, answering the Archbishop's questions
in an audible voice. After the laying on of hands
Bishop Jones took his sefit within the rails of the
communion table. Bishop Jones, the third prelate
of that name, was educated at Trinity College,
Cambridge has been ten years curate of Broms-
grove, and three rector of Little Hereford, and
was chosen for his present office by the Archbishop
of Canterbury, the Bishop of London, and Preben-
dary Bullock, at the request of the Newfoundland
CATHARINE II. OF RusSIA.-In the eaty months
of her reign Catharine had to encounter a large
amount of disaffection on the part of her subjects,
and to suppress more than one revolt and conspi-
racy; but being at length firmly seated on the
throne she did much towards completing the de-
signs of Peter the Great. She had little sympathy
with anything that did not carry with it a prac-
tical value, and the medieval extravagances of the
Greek Chuich inspired her with nothing but con-
tempt, though as a matter of policy she confirmed
to its rites. In 1766 she dazzled the citizens of
St. Petersburg by an elaborate pageant called a
carousel, which reproduced the splendid manners
of chivalry with great exactness ; and at all times
her habits were grand and lofty. Many of her
reforms were really admirable, and prompted by
a sentiment of humanity difficult to reconcile with
the crime by which her power had been consoli-
dated. Successive codes of law had been issued
by various Russian sovereigns, and Catharine
added another to the list in 1768. It abolished
the use of torture, and placed the humble Russian
on a much better f..,c,.rg than he had occupied
CAUSE OF ExPLosIo-s.-- A lamp may be standing
on a table or mantel, and a slight puff of air from
the open window or door may cause an explosion,
A lamp may be taken up quickly from a table or
mantel and instantly exploded. A lamp is taken
out into the entry, where there is a draught, or
out of door, and an explosion ensues. A lighted
lamp is taken up a flight of stairs or is raised
quickly to place it on the mantel, resulting in an
explosion. In these cases the mischief is done by
the air movement-eiher by suddenly checking
the draught or forcing air down the chimney
against tIe flame. Blc,'.vr. down the chimney to
extinguish the light is a frequent cause of explosi-
on. Lamp explosions have been caused by using
a chimney broken off at the top, or one that has
a piece broken out whereby the draught is variable
and the flame unsteady. Sometimes a thoughtless
pei son puts a small wick into a large burner, thus
leaving considerable space along the edges of the
iick. An old burner, with its air draught clog-
ged up, which right-fully should be thrown away,
is sometimes continued in use, and the finalresult
is an explosion.

LONDON, June 3.-In the House of Commons
this evening papers in regard to the Congress were
laid on the table, Sir Stafford Northeote, the Chan-
cellor of the Exchequer, stated that the documents
embrace the invitation of Germany to a Congress
to be held in Berlin on the 13th day of June, for
the free discussion of the treaty of San Stefano, and
Lord Salisbury's acceptance of Germany's invita-
tion, with an explanation that England under-
stands that all the great powers are asked to assent
to the free discussion of the aforesaid treaty.
[Note.-This implies a guarantee by Germany of
the point originally raised by England.]
J The Chancellor confirmed the announcement
that Lords Beaconsfield, Salisbury and Odo Rus-
sell will represent Great Britain in the Congress.
In the House of Lords to-night Lord Salisbury
'made a statement in reference to Germany's invi-
tation to a congress similar to that made by Sir
Ptafford Northcote in the House of Commons.
SThe following is the text of the German note of
invitation to the congress:
I fThe undersigned, the CAmbassador of the Empe-
ror ofGermany, has the honor by order of his Gov-
Seminent to convey to his Excellency the Marquis of
SSalisbury, Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs to
Her Majesty the Queen of Great Britain and Ire-
lnd aand Empress of India, the following communi
cation : In comformity with the initiative taken by
the Austro-Hungarian Cabinet, the Government of
His Majesty the u.mperor has the honor to propose
to the powers who are the signatories of the treaties
of 1856 and 1871, to meet in Congress at Berlin to
discuss there the stipulations of the preliminary
treaty of San Stefano, concluded between Russia
and Turkey. The government of HisMajesty in
giving this invitation to the Government of Her
Brittanic Majesty understands that, in accepting it,
the Government ofH1er Brittanic Majesty consents
to admit the free discussion of the whole of the
contents of the treaty of San Stefano. and that it is
ready to participate therein. In the event of ac-
ceptance of all the powers invited the Government
of His Majesty proposes to fix the meeting of the
Congress for June 13th.
The undersigned, in bringing the above to the
knowledge of His Excellency, has the honor to ask
him to bo good enough to acquaint him as soon as
possible with the reply of the British Government.
The following is Lord Salisbury's reply to the
The undersigned. Her Majesty's principal Secre-
tary of State for Foreign Affairs, has the honor to
acknowledge the receipt of His Excellency's com-
munications inviting Her Majesty's Government to
take part in a Congress at Berlin for the discussion
of'the stipulations of the preliminary treaty con-
cluded at San Stefano between Russia and Turkey.
The undersigned taking His Excellency's verbal
intimation that the invitation had been sent in the
same terms to the other powers who are signatories
of the treaty of Paris, and understanding that those
powers assent to the invitation on the terms stated
in His Excellency's note, has the honor to inform
His Excellency that the Government of Her Ma-
jesty will be ready to take part in a Congress at the
LONDON, June 3.-In the House of Lords to-night
Earl Granville heartily congratulated the House
and the Government that the San Stefano treaty
was about to be discussed by the Powers in a Con-
gress; but both Earl Granville in the House of
Lords and the Marquis of Hartington in the House
of Commons censured the selection of England's
representatives to the Congress, on the ground that
it was inexpedient for the Premier and the Foreign
Secretary!to be absent at the same time. The Mar-
quis of Hartington also complained that this ar-
rangement leaves England's representatives uncon-
trolled either by the Cabinet or Parliament. The
matter was not pushed to any issue, the objections
being met by Lord Beaconsfield in the House of
Lords and by Sir Stafford Northcote in the Com-
mons, and the subject dropped.
Reuter's Constantinople despatch says: Safvet
Pasha will be one of the Turkish representatives at

DISASTER IN THE BRI'ISFI CHANNEL.
LOSS OF THREE HUNDRED LIVES.
Sinking of a German Flagship-Sudden and Fearful
Consequences of'a Collision.
DovER, May 31.-The German squadron, con-
sisting of three ironclads, the Preussen, Grosser
Kurfurst and Koenig Wilhelm, passed Dover at
8-45 this morning, bound for Plymouth, whence it
expected to sail for Gibraltar.
When the squadron was off Ludgate, about five
miles from shore, one of the ironclads was observed
to be gradually heeling over on her beam ends, and
men were seen crowding on the bulwarks. In
about five minutes the vessel went down on her
side, her boilers blowing up as she sank.
The captain of a fishing boat makes the following
statement: My boat with other fishing vessels, was
returning to Folkestone when we noticed'three Iron-
clads coming down. A bark was fetching off shore.
The Grosser Kurfurst the German Admiral's Flag-
ship ported her helm to clear the bark. The
Koenig Wilhelm pulled hard aport and struck
the Grosser Kurfurst forward of her mizzenmast.
The Kurfurst went over on her broadside and sank
in five minutes. She went down in fifteen fa-
thoms. All hands jumped overboard. Our boats
reached the spot directly afterward and rescued
twenty-seven men, including three officers. The
other boats rescued a number of the crew, all of
whom were transferred to the Koenig Wilhelm.
Captain Batock, of the Grosser Kurfurst, went
down with his ship. The boilers did not explode,
but the escaping steam must have scalded many
persons in the water. The Koenig Wilhelm had
her bows stove, but the leak was stopped with ham-
mocks. Would go to Plymouth to be Docked.
The collision was undoubtedly caused by the Koe-
nig Wilhelm porting her helm too suddenly.
Mr. Smith, the First Lord of the Admiralty, in
his statement in thelHouse of Commons to-day,
confirms the report that the collision occurred
while the Grosser Kurfurst was endeavoring to
avoid a merchantman. He said a dock was pre-
paring at Portsmouth for the reception of the Koe-
nig Wilbelm. She is now proceeding thither.
Two of the men who were rescued have died from
exhaustion on board the Preussen. Eye-witnesses
of the disaster say the Preussen did not lower any
boat and that nobody was visible in the water half
an hour after the Grosser Kurfurst foundered. The
Koenig Wilhelm, which is the flagship carrying
Rear Admiral Batsc'a, and the Preussen are ex-
pected at Portsmouth at one o'clock this morning.
LONDON, June 1.-According to a telegram dis-
patch by Rear-Admiral Batsch from Folkestone
183 men were saved. Most of the estimates give the
Grosser Kurfurst's crew at about 500. A report
resting upon the authority of the Sandgate Coast'
Guard says 255 were saved. The Coast Guard
however, state that they are informed the Grosser
Kurfurst's crew was nearer that number than 500.
It is reported that 22 of the rescued have since
died from exhaustion.
The latest Lloyd's telegram gives the total of
saved at 23 officers and 160 men.
LONDON, June 2.-The officers of the German
ironclad Koenig Wilhelm declare that the collision
was caused by the failure of her steering gear.
The Times Jubilant.-The Times, in an editorial
article says :-" Seldom has a more honorable
triumph been won by diplomacy, or rather, states-
manship, by any country, than that which, as re-
corded in the invitations to the Congress, has been
definitely achieved by England. The Great Powers
are summoned to Berlin by the German govern-
ment, not to consider a few details of the Treaty of
San Stefano, but to discuss the whole treaty in its
relations to subsisting engagements, and thus prac-
tically to review the whole position of the Eastern
THE LATEST EUROPEAN NEWS.
LONDON, June 6, 1878.-A despatch from St.
Petersburg announces that Prince Gortschakoff is
sufficiently recovered to go to the Congress. He
will be accompanied by Count Schouvaloff and
Prince d'Oubril, the Russian Ambassador at Berlin.
Russian Hope in the Congress.-The Agence Russe
says :-" The presence of the leading Ministers in
the Congress and the spirit which now seems to
animate the various Cabinets give hope that the
Eastern question will be dealt with in a broad
sense, with the object of reaching a common under-
standing and consolidating the peace of Europe.
The Emperor came to the city from Tsarskoe-Selo
on Tuesday to advise with Prince Gortschakoff."
Not In a Man-of- War.-The report is untrue that
Lord Beaconsfield and Salisbury are to go to the
Continent in a man-of-war. Their departure will
be attended with no formality. Lord Beaconsfield
and his private secretary will leave on Saturday by
way of Ostend and Brussels. .Lord Salisbury will
leave on Monday.
Favorable News from Stamboul.-The news from
Constantinople continue reassuring. The appoint-
ment of Safvet Pacha as Grand Vizier and the
supersession of Mahmoud Damad Pacha in the
War Ministry are particularly favorable signs.
Safvet Pacha is of very pacific disposition, enlight-
ened and on good terms with all the embassies.
The Porte's Representatives.-The Porte received
and has accepted an invitation to attend the Con-
gress. Safvet Pacha's new dignity will permit
him to meet the other plenipotentiaries on an equal
footing. Sadoullah Bey, Ambassador to Berlin,
will probably be the second representative.
The Question of the Fortresses.-The pressure ap-
plied by the Russians for the surrender of the for-
tresses excites no apprehension, because their sur-
render is considered, equally with the Russian
withdrawal, purely a matter for arrangement,
neither being stipulated for at any definite time in
the Treaty of San Stefano, and the latter not being
regarded as operative until submitted to the Con-
Russian Military Movements.-The Post announces
that the Russians have massed 27,000 men and 125
guns at Tchorlu, which is a central position as re-
gards Constantinople, Adrianople and Gallipoli.
Russians and Roumanians.-A despatch to the
Vienna Political Correspondence from Bucharest says
the Russians, considering their communications
threatened by the position of the Roumanian army,
have determined to occupy Plojesti.
Waiting for the Congress.-The Daily News St.
Petersburg correspondent says :-" In consequence
of the Turks endeavoring to provoke hostilities
Russia and England have agreed not to withdraw
their forces until the end of the Congress."
Turkish Appointments.-Reouf Pacha has been
appointed Grand Master of Artillery. Mukhtar
Pacha remains Chief of Staff.
ANOTHER ATTEMPT TO ASSASSINATE THE
BERLIN, June 2.-While the Emperor was taking a
drive at 2:30 o'clock this afternoon some shots, Pppa-
rently proceeding from a house in the Avenue Unter
den Linden, were fired at him. The Emperor was
wounded in one arm and on the cheek by buck shot and
small shot. The would-be assassin is a Dr. Nobiling,
occupying apartments at No. 18 Unter den Linden.
When his door was forced open he fired upon and
wounded the hotel keeper, ahd tried to commit sui-
cide, but was secured. The Emperor's personal at-
tendant jumped into the carriage and supported the
Emperor until the carriage reached the palace. The
Empesor was 'conveyed to bed, and several grains of
shot extracted, causing great loss of blood. The Em-
peror suffered great pain, but never lost consciousness
up to the latest moment. At seven o'oclock this
evening no serious apprehensions were felt as to his
The following is taken from official accounts and
bulletins published in regard to the attempted assass-
ination of the Emperor :
Nobiling fired twice with a double-barrelled gun.
The Emperor received about thirty small shots in the
face, head, both arms and back, but by about 6
o'clock this evening his general condition had already
improved in a satisfactory manner. An immense
crowd from all parts of the city thronged into the
Avenue Unter den Linden on the news becoming
The assassin is Karl Edward Nobling, a native of
Kolino, near Bernbaum, aged 32 years. He is a res-
ident of Berlin, a doctor of philology, an agricultural-
ist, and a habitue of Democratic Socialist clubs. A
quantity of arms was found in his apartments. He
fired on persons attempting to arrest him with a
ready loaded revolver, .and then inflicted severe
wounds on his own head. He confesses the crime, but
obstinately refuses to state his motives. He is at the
hospital station of the Molkonmarkt police district,
attended by his mother and daughters.
LONDON, June 3.-A later Reuter telegram says
Nobiling has confessed that he cherished the murder-
ous design for eight days, because he considered that
Emperor's removal would be a public benefit. He de-
clared that he favored socialism and had attended so-
cialistic meetings. Some accounts say that Nobiling
is supposed to be dying. It is known that a few days
ago Nobiling unsuccessfully applied for government
BERLIN, June 6.-A bulletin issued from the palace

symptoms of fever.

spread of Socialism."
WRECK OF THE WILLIAMS & GUION STR.
LONDON, June 2.-The Press Association has a tele-
gram Irom Liverpool stating that the Williams &
Guin steamer Idaho, Holmes, from New York for
Liverpool, went ashore in a fog near the Kening'og
lightship on the coast of Ireland, and afterward foun-
dered. The crew and passengers were saved.
The Idaho sank fifteen minutes after striking the
rocks near the Saltees Islands. The captain ordered
the boats to be lowered immediately on the vessel
striking, and the women and children were first em-
barked. None of the property was saved. The cap-
tain was the last to leave the vessel. The passengers
remained on the Saltees until Sunday morning.
She lies in nineteen fathoms of water midway be-
tween Coningbeg and Brandies rocks. Her topgal-
lantmasts are visible at low water. The owners are
negotiating for a steamer to take the place of the Idaho,
which was to sail on Saturday next.
The passengers speak highly of the conduct of
Captain Holmes and his crew, and have drawn up a
testimonial to that effect to be presented to the
With the heavy loss of life on the German ironclad
sunk in the British Channel, the question will again
be asked whether these floating fortresses are worth
their cost in live and treasure. For purposes of at-
tack they have failed in three or four wars ; with us
iu the bombardment of Fort Sumter, with the French
in the North Sea, under the Turks in the recent con-
flict ; and even for defensive purposes, their usefulness
is open to doubt. But while of questionable service
against foes, they are of more than ordinary danger to
their own crews. Every nation that possesses such
ships has now its list of disasters to thornem, beginning
on our own coast with the first MAonitor. Theloss of
the British ironclad Captain, with nearly all on board,
roused Englishmen to the dangers to which such ves-
sels are exposed, but the Vanguard sank not long af-
terward. The swiftness with which they go down
when an accident happens to them, make the rescue
of theirrtcrews almost impossible; five minutes after
the Grosser Kurlfirst struck, she had disappeared from
view. The Turkish ironclads that were destroyed by
torpedoes, scarcely went more swiftly to the bottom
than the German ship on a peaceful voyage, in an
open channel, ~under a serene sky. -N. Y. Tribune,
OTTAWA, Oat., June 3.-The Supreme Court
opened here to-day. The first case taken up was
that of Macdonald vs. Do dge, an appeal as to whe-
ther bankruptcy and a deed of assignment in the
United States could affect real estate in Canada.
The Court decided that it could not. The appeal
was dismissed with costs.

AMERICAN DIPLOMAS ABROAD..
[Inserte I by Request.]
It would appear that our English cousins are never
to learn what constitutes a true medical diploma in
this country. The name American diploma is so
constantly associated in their minds with the bogus
certificates which are sold by quasi institutions here,
that it is difficult for them to understand that we have
any other legal guaranties for medical education.
The facts of this abominable traffic have been brought
to the notice of the profession across the water time
and time again, and it should be pretty generally
understood that the quacks who settle in. London, and
who claim to be American" physicians, are no more
recognized here than they are there. The profession
here has done its best to check the bogus diploma
trade, and to a certain extent it has succeeded. It
should not be held accountable for what it cannot
control; and further, it is hardly fair to class what
are really well-educated medical men here with a
class whom even our English brethren acknowledge
are transparent frauds.
Every little while a new case comes into the Lon-
don courts under the sensational caption of "Another
American Physician in Trouble," and we read the ac-
count to find that a Dr." Hamilton or Dr." Jones.
has been guilty of unlawful conduct in assuming a
spurious title, etc., etc. ; and then, in the course of
the comments upon the value ot American diplomas
and the laxity of requirements for a medical degree,
the usually absurd questions are asked if there be such
a recognized medical school in the United States as.
the Metropolitan Medical College, the School of Me-
dicine of New York, the Medical University of Phila-
delphia, et id omne genus. We protest that we have
had enough of this, and think it about time that our
critics should inform themselves of the true state of
medical affairs in this country before indulging in fur-
ther remarks. *
WHAT THE WORLD SAYS."
AN INTERESTING INCIDENT IN CONNECTION WITH THE
CASE OF "SWAEBS VS. TII[STLETnIWAYTE."
[From the London World, May 15.]
Once upon a time, many years ago, there was an
Indian prince who visited these shores in search of
adventures. Among others he made the acquaintance
of an English lady, to whom he became devoted. At
last he was forced to leave for his native land, and on
parting-like other princes in fairy stories-gave his
"lady friend" a ring, siying, Whatever the bearer
of that ring bids me do I will do." Years rolled on,
and the ring lay unused in the lady's jewel box until
the indian mutiny broke out. And then-the afore-
said Indian potentate having joined the rebels-it
became a matter of great moment to the English gov-
ernment of the day to recover his allegiance. Some-
how the romantic gift of the ring leaked out, and a
Cabinet Minister (so runs this wonderful tale) s t off
in a great hurry from Downing Street to seek our
heroine's residence in-Grosvenor Square, let us say.
The ring was obtained, the promise was kept, and the
English troops saved at a most critical juncture. Now,
it is said, the lady by whose means this desirable
conversion was brought about claims the new Order of
the Crown of India as her reward. It is also said that
she was the central figure of the late celebrated trial
of Swaebe vs. Thistlethwayte." .
To Invade Crete.-A rumor prevails in Chatham
that an expedition to Crete is being organized. At all
events, all the efficient of the Royal Engineers are
being drafted into companies for foreign service after
undergoing the final examination, which was appoint-
ed for Saturday last, six days before the time selected.
They are being measured for the white helmets, indi-
cative of coming service in the East, and have been
informed that they may be called upon to leave Eng-
land at forty-eight hours' notice. In Malta the full
compliment of Engineers required for the extra work
caused by the precautionary measures of the govern-
ment has already arrived. The men being got ready
for foreign service cannot be wanted for that quarter.
Why Didn't he Explain.-A dinner of a compli-
mentary kind was given on Sunday last to Hobart
Pacha by his personal friends, at the Army and Navy
Club. It was anticipated that, in replying to his
health, he might volunteer some explanation as to why
the Turkish fleet accomplished so little in the late
war. But the wily Pacha was not to be drawn,
and merely remarked on that score that his hands.

was received by Her Majesty when in town last week,
and among other things, it is said, he assured the
Queen that, from his observation, unless England as.
served herself now, the British Empire was not worth
twenty years' purchase.

UNSEAWORTHY VESSELS. *
The excitement caused byithe loss of the steamship
Metropolis last January, has long since been for-
gotten. The lesson which it taught has been neg-
lected. And now the investigations into the causes
of her loss, have demonstrated more strongly than
ever the inability of our present system to deal prop-
erly with the question of unseaworthy vessels. Had
it not been for the very large loss (of life which ac-
companied the Metropolis disaster that case would
probably never have been investigated. But the
evidence which so far has been collected and the
whole investigation proceedings show that the com-
munity for its own protection, must insist that the
Government shall adopt some measures, which will
prevent unseaworthy vessels leaving port.
In the case of the Metropolis, an investigation
has been made and the officials are of the opinion
that the responsibility for the loss of the vessel rests
with the owners. The Treasury Department can go
no further in the matter, however, because it has no
criminal jurisdiction, but the Solicitor of the Treas-
ury recommends that the matter be transferred to
the United States District Attorney for indictment
and trial by jury. Judicial proceedings 'will no
doubt be commenced and the public can afford to
leave the whole matter to the decision of the courts.
We only cite this case to show how unsuited such
a system is to meet the requirements of the situa-
tion. What is needed, is a Government Board
which shall have jurisdiction over matters pertain-
Ing to the employment of unseaworthy ships. There
should be none of the long delays and red tape sys-
tem of the Treasury Department. The Board
should have power to inquire into all cases of al-
leged unseaworthiness, to prevent vessels which are
in that condition from sailing, and to punish any
parties who should attempt to send a vessel to sea
knowing her to be unseaworthy. Nothing has yet
been done toward appointing such a board. Yet,
there is plenty of work for one, as many vessels,
which should be broken up, are no doubt in active
service. This matter should be no longer nieglect-
ed and the good intention shown by investigating
the Metropolis ease should be continued by estab-
lishing a Government Board, which would to a
very great extent prevent similar causes of disasters

We fear the legal gentlemen who are advertising
for the "Noble Lady" lost in 1S73 from London
havelcome too late into the field. This "flight of

her captors probably have before their ey.s too
