Bigelow, Walter Elail THE HON-PUBIICITY POLICY. An American in Russian-Asia. The oxtrnets fiom a London letter contain several things of interest: Mr. Sehnyler being the only nou-Ktis- diplomatist T.-UO has ever visited Central Asia, it was very desirable that the resalt of bis obsen-ntions should be make known. I rather think, however, that, hnel he been r.n English diplomatist his disnatches wonUl never have seen the light. 'In the United States they seem to print everything sont home from your j various Legations; and I remember some i dozen years ago reading n dispatch from General Cnssius Clay, then Minister to Kt. Petersburg, iu which, indignant tit the attitude of ft portion of the English cation during the civil war, hb advised Mr. Sew-aid to bring the English Gov- ernment to her senses by sending a hos- tile expedition to Ireland. This com- munication was rendered qnite harmless by the fact that it was followed by one in reply from Mr. Seward requesting General Cassias Clay to confine his at- tention to the proper business of his Le- gation; mid the members of the English Embassy at St. Petersburg, where I happened to see it, looked upon the whole affair as a joke. This same re- port, by the wav, tells how the Emperor o f Bnssia, on General Cassins Clay be- ing presented to him, addressed the American envoy in with many other noteworthy particulars, from which the curious must be referred to the document itself. Indeed, toe American rule is, appar- ently, print all the dispatches re- ceived from abroad. The custom iu England is to publish just ns much as will satisfy the House of Commons and the public without offtnding foreign gov- ernments or compromising the authors of the dispatches. Tlie Austrians, in their ''Red Book." reproduce the in- structions sent out froui the Foreign Office, but very little of whnt arrives back to the Foreign Minister. The French, under the Empire (I do not know what their practice has been of late reproduce in their "Yellow Book" the instructions from the Foreign IJiuister to the chiefs of Embassies and Legations abroad, and nothing else. Prussia publishes no Blue Books; and when Prince Bismnrck was once esked in the Prussian Chamber, why he al- lowed his country to be distanced in this respect even by Austria, he replied that if he undertook the publication of dip- lomatic Blue Books he should be obliged to double the staff of clerks ia the Foreign Office; inasmuch as, oesides copying genuine dispatches for the ar- chives, it would be necessary to prepare false, or garbled dispatches for the gen- eral reader. This, indeed, with a candor which bis enemies call the Prince nas said again and again; and, without any approach to he has more than oiice explained that if foreign diplomatists knew that their com- munications to Prussian or German envoys would in due time be submitted' to the public gaze, they would often be prevented from making communications of great importance. For these reasons. Prussia publishes no diplomatic Blue Books, while in Russia there has never been the slightest question of such a; thing. In Eughud, as I was before say-1 ing, they publish mutilated dispatches. Bat, apart from what it is sometimes found necessary to cut out, the omission of which is duly indicated by blanks or asterisks, the dispatches are genuine as far as they go; and in almost (ill cases they enable one to form n fair idea as to what must have been in their original form.'According to that eminent Rnsso- phobist, Mr. David Urquhart, who, in every complication, sees the hand of Russia, as Mr. Whajley and Mr. Fewde- gate see that of the Jesuits, dispatches, However mnc-h mutilated, are always of j use to a discerning critic. "They are of game service to he once wrote, "that the clothes of a murdered man are to a detective. They show that a mur- der has been oonjmitted, and often ena- ble me to find out all the particulars of the crime." As regards Jlr. Schuyler's report on the affairs of Central Asia, it seems ab- surd to blame him for having described what he himself saw; but if the Russians have any just grounds for complaint on the subject it must be against the United States Government as indiscreet pub- lishers, rather than against Mr. Schuy- leru conscientious and truth-telling reporter. But the fact is, the Russians believe, or affect to believe, that if a man receives the highest civilities at their hands he is bound for that reason to speak well of everything in Russia. "Only they will say of a travel- er, who, after being kindly received in Russia, has perhaps ventured to remark that the Russian Government in .Poland is by no means perfect; "only think of that ungrateful man writing against us alter the Princess Vera had asked him Mveral times to dinner, and Gen. Pop- imoff hod lent him horses." Mr. Schuy- ler is doubtless looked upon at this mo- ment as a monster of ingratitude, be- cause, after being permitted, as a partic- ular favor, to visit the Russian posses- sions in Central Asia, he has presumed to find fault, here and there, with what be saw. The fact is, the Russians, regarded item one very important point of view, are barbarians. I do not wish to use the word offensively, and I know better than moat people that the Russians have pro- luge number of poems, novels, and comedies, many of which are ad- mirable; that they possess considerable talent for music, and that some of then' punters are excellent both by their orig- inal qualities and by their acquired skill. But they are barbarians in this scr.se, that they are strangers to that political civilization which allows and even im- plies freedom of criticism for foreign as wall M for home institutions. The Prus- sians, ia this respect, are not so very much better than their more primitive neighbors; witness the trouble that an American correspondent, Mr. Jackson, and an English correspondent, Mr. Kingston, have lately got into at Ber- lin for publishing news or comments un- favorable to the Prussian Administra- tion. "Booth came fondly hoping to find company among gome of the uewly- ctoofed Senators, but party demands have swept them from him, so that he stands Times. ADVERTISEMENTS. E. KREYENHACEN CO.
