Tho llrsl day was spent In an artillery duel, but on tho 10th the Russians attacked, and after a light lasting all day the Turks were com- pletely whipped and driven from tho Hold. A cavalry charge followed, converting tho defeat into a rout. The losses on both sides wero very heavy, tlio Turks losing the great- er number. Dayuxld has boon rcoccupled by IhoTiirkB- A Montencgiln telegram of tho 23d admits that Sullemun Pasha and All Bulb's forces have effected a lunctlon, and says It was after six days' continuous lighting. Tho combined forces at onco marched upon Cot- tlnjo, which thu evacuated. Tho dispatch says tho Turkish loss Is Incal- culable. The Montenegrins lost one-seventh of their force. The Turks on the 20th attacked a llusslan division at KlllaU. Tho light lasted until nightfall, thoUuuBlun division bolngcutln two and llcelng In dlscrder. Turkish advices say It was part of the Commandor-ln-Chlef's plan to pormlt tho Russians to cross Into tho Dobrudscha. Tho bombardment of Kustehuk was com- menced by tho Russians on tho 23d, and con. tinned with groat vigor on tho 25th. A groat number ot persons have been killed by shells. Shots struck the German, English nnd Bel- gian Consulates, Tho Turks replied vigor- ously, tho townof Glurftiivo, opposite Kust- chuk, being tired by their shells. An Ibrnll dispatch of tho 25th says tho Turks have retreated toward Wlddln, aban. donlnc tho whole north ond of tho Dobrud- soli a. Bombardments continued alone tho whole Russian lino on the Dnnubu on tho 25th. Tho Russians madu a second crossing on the 25th at Hlrsova. Klghtccn thousand mon passed over and clloetcd a Junction with de- tachments from Mutchln, and at once marched ngalnul tho Turkish dofoiifus be- tween Czarnnvodaand Kustjomle. An Erzoromu dispatch of tho 25th says tho bombardment of Kars Is very severe, and tho garrison Is snflcrlng greatly. So far all at- tacks luvo boon lopulflcd with loss to tho Russians. THE EASTEEN WAS: Tho Weekly Kovlow of tlio Situation. LONDON, Juno I. All authorities contiuuu to assort that tho crossing opposite Ibrall Is iulandod moroly us u diversion, because tlio limtlnlclimate luuUlooilodcoiulltiou of the DobrudBqhn forbid operations on nn ox- tunslvo Hculo. In this connection It la Intoi'osllnn to note' thai its nny danger fro.nx tho Turkish flotilla or urmy on tho and Koul lino has, in tlio opinion of tUoKuoslim comivmmlors, now passed nwiiy, u majority of the troops luwo bocix withdraw a Ihonoo toQlurgovo, to replace tlio force who proceeded to tho Yodci and Alutu. No Ic83 than seven or ulght trulim i) day have been leaving Buolwrosl with troops, nrllllary ivud to replace at Qiurgevo tho troops who marched down to Islnsch nnd Turnn Magurclll, Tlio number of troops now between, and at and Qiurgevo is no loss Hum while at Turnn Magurolll and Islasch up to Kornbbl are upward ot 000.- A portion of the reinforcements at Slatlnn aro now buing sent westward to ICrajova, and the troops whoso place they tnko there, to the number of aro moving toward KiUafat and Qladova, Between Qiurgovo nnd Kularasch there aro There aro thus between KB- lurasch and the Huuguilan frontier 000 men for the llrst lino of attack. -In tho second line of Slobosla, Bucharest, Blatina and Krajovu there aro and further north again a reserve of Is stationed, half at Ploiesli and half at Ptleseh. The foregoing arc tho combatants, of whom there are thus exclusive of tho troops at Ibrall, 1'cnl and tho reserve camps and barracks at Tar- tar, BumnrnndBolgrnd. Tho total num- ber of Russians of the combatant and non-combalaul services who aro now in Houmania is reliably estimated at 000. Their heavy guns aro supplied with 700 rounds each, and they have on tho Vodo and Aluta sullleiont pontoons for the construction of six bridges across tho Danube. It is believed that tho main passage must bo attempted In a few days. Tho Danube is still rather high, the spring Hoods having in a great measure subsided, but before long the summer Hoods, caused by the melting of snow on tho lower Carpathians, will commence. Tho interval must, therefore, be utilix.ed if an attempt is to be made under favor- ablo conditions. Tho position of the Russians at Turnn MuguroUi and Sim- gives them command of four favor- able passages, namely: TurnnMngurolll, Slinnltzn, Hustchuk and Orcava. Within twelve hours the Russians could, by drawing the troops from Sim- nitta and Slobosiit, muster men at and around Olurgovo, or by moving tho troops at westward to Turiin Magurclll they could In ton hours mass men there and at Islasch. It would also be possible by moving the troops at Turnn Magurelli and Islasch to threaten Oreava with mon, and Nikopoli with Thus within twelve hours these four points can be threatened by a force of men, supported on the left by the Ctiurgcvo corps, on tho right by the Krajova corps, and in tho rear by a second liuo at Alexandria and Kusuho do or Slatina. Crossings, therefore, now need only bo a matter of a few hours, and good espionage. Of course which of the foregoing four points is chosen dupemls in a great measure on the movements of the Turks. It is an important point in favor of the Russians that, owing to greater straight- ness of tho road on the northern side of the river, they can march faster than the Turks. The troops at Krajova and west- ward thereof, numbering com- bined with tho Roumanians, can also threaten AViddin, Palanka and Loin having fallen back' on Dcllbaba, ,lho Rus- sian left wing toQlc, possopslori of the Dolibaba I'ass and fortlllod U. 'Mukhtar Pasha telegraphed Rachld join reinforcements from tho Turk- ish loft wing, and quitted-his headquar- ters at Kowln on tho night of tho 17th for Dellbaba to tako command hi person. On the following day ho received rein- forcouionts which raised tho strength of the right wiug to nineteen battalions, fo'ur cavalry regiments, and throo bat- teries. Tho Russians in .tho Dulibubu Pass numbered with four bat- teries, Several Bkirmljhcs woro fought on Juno 20. On the '.Hat Mukhtar attacked the pass, lighting .lasted from six o'clock in '.no morning until eight in tho evening. Tho Russians woro, at first, driven from their positions, but they afterward recaptured them and attacked tho Turkish positions on the heights with Infantry and cavalry. Tho Turkish front gave w.'y for a short time, but afterward rallied, charged tho Russians, and drove them back. The Turks then opened a terriblo artillery lire and com- pelled the Russians to fall back with heavy loss. Tho Turks acknowledge a Ions of 400 lulled and about tho same number wounded. It is reckoned that Iho Russian losses woro at least double that number. On tho 28d Mukhtar again fought a severe battle. Russian cavalry wore placed in an entrenchment to act as in- Inutry, but, ultimately, tho Turks drove them out and pursued them, the Russians retreating in disorder for Kordlkau, Tlio whole of tho lighting lasted thirty-two hours, The Turkish loss was upward of and Iho Russian much heavier. The Turkish headquarters aro still at Hewin, in n position which is unassaila- ble In front. On tho 23d Rus- sians began to advunco against tho posi- tion. Dorvlsh Pasha telegraphs from Ba- toum Juno 23: Wo have repulsed several attacks of the Russians, and finally compelled them to withdraw their batteries and retreat with a loss of l.COO killed and A frigate assisted in this all'uir by the bombardment of the entrenchments ot the Russians, and OHIO NEWS ITEMS, OATT.

JoRKi'ii STOOKUAN, of Miami City, wont out hunting near Dayton, on tho 17th, with u double-barreled shot-gun, and was found in the evening with one barrel ot his.gun discharged, a portion of his left hand torn oil' and the charge of shot lodged lii his loft breast. Ho was uncon- scious and cannot survive. It is sup- posed that ho accidentally discharged tho gun while A CiiKviciiAND girl wants a lover badly, as tho following letter received by tho Postmaster at Toledo testifies: MB llnclM nvo Oluvuluml Juno 151877 to lliu nmn seven Turkish woro killed. ofilcers and eighty men lanka, any1 can act as tho right wing of an Oreava attack, or, if the disposition of tbo Turks should render such a move- ment necessary, the left wing ol a Tlmok Valloy attack, with Roumanian and Serv- ian troops 'forming tho center and right. Of course the latter eventuality is im- probable at present. There have been llonting rumors during the week of a Suleiman Fashu's losses In the recent lighting In Montenegro are estimated at OnthoS-Ithho was encamped near Spun. Mohomot All was retiring toward TUB potato bugs aro attacking tho beans. possibility of tho Turks attempting the oll'ensivc by a feint at Knlftfat, and real attack below Roni, to be supported by a fleet. Of course this would considerably alter tho Russian plans, but it is consid- ered improbable, although tho Russians have strengthened the forces at Bolgrad and are erecting redoulTts at Satanova, Jlbranl nnd on tho road from Barda to Ismail, The Russian tactics now will bo to push tho force forward as rapidly as pos- sible up tho a hand to tho Russian forces on tho way up tho Danube, This will enable the force at Hlrsovn to cross without (lifllculty, and on proceeding higher up It can likewise extend a hand lo tho other forces at Kalarash, and oven Oltcnlty.it. Should tho Turks detach tho force from about Rustchuk and Nikopoli sulllcient to stop its progress, they will so weaken their lino at this point that the Russian troops between Gulrgevo and Turnn Magurelli would bo ablo to cross with compara- tively Httlo loss. In Asia the most Important strategical event has been tho re-establishment of connection between tho Russian loft and center, nu proved by tho fact that in a previous battle tho Zcidkokan loft was strongly reinforced from tho center. Crowing; tUo In KAIL, June 21. This morning a little after daybreak the people of Ibrall woro awakened by tho sound of artillery and musketry on tho other side of tho river, showing that tho Danube must have been crossed. 0, u. Zimmerman had gone to Galaty, and crossed tho Danube with two regi- ments of Infantry, and a proportionate amount of artillery and cavalry, in a number of boats towed over by steam launches. ____ ST. PuTKimimiKi, Juno SI. An official account of tho engagement fought by tho troops who crossed from Gnlatsi and occupied tho Budjak Heights says: Tho Russian force consisted of ten companies of infantry, who crossed in boats and wero received by a heavy fire. They, however, valiantly attacked tho heights and drove back tho enemy. Tho Turkish force consisted of infan- try, 800 cavalry and two guns. Tho Russians having no cavalry or artil- lery wero obliged to resist the Turkish cavalry with tho bayonet. The Turks withdrew on tho arrival of tlio Russian reinforcements and artillery. Tho Rus- sian losses woro forty-eight killed and ninety wounded. Gen. Zimmerman tel- egraphs that the clergy and Christian in- habitants of Matohiu received tho Rus- sians with groat ceremony. One regi- ment is already in town and will bo re- inforced by a brigade under Gen. lokoff. OALATZ, Jane The right wing of tho Russian army is moving along tho loft bank of the Aluta toward tho Danube. Eight thousand Russians participated in tho occupation Hanging "Molly Thursday, May 21, was "Hangman's Day" in Pennsylvania. Kelly, Doyle, Donahue nnd Campbell (Molly convicted of various minders, were hanged at Mauch Chunk on tho same scallold at tho same time. They were all attended by priests. Kelly, Doyle and Campbell died easy; Donahue struggled for two minutes. Prior to their execution, when asked if they had anything to say, Campbell mild ho for- gave everybody and ho had not an enemy in the woild; Doyle's speech was inaudi- ble; Kully iccilod after the priest a plea for forgiveness; Donahue had nothing to say. In tho morning tho latter drove his counsel from his coll. At Pottsviile, Uoyle, McGeohan, Car- roll, Roarity, Dully and Munly (all Molly Magulrcs) wero hanged for the murder of I'olicoman Yost at Tamaqua in 1875, They were hanged in pairs in the order given. Priests accompanied tho doomed men to the scallold. Boyle was self- possessed during the services on the scaH'okl, occasionally inhaling tho per- fume of a roso which he held In his hand. Responding to a remark of tho priest Boyle said: I ain't a bit sorry." Me- Gcclian asked forgivcnucss of the whole world if he had done a wrong to them. Neither had anything to saj as to his guilt or innocence. Roarity and Carroll declared their innocence on the scallbld. Munly and Dully made 110 speeches. Andrew Litnahnn was hnnucd at "Wilkcsbarro for' tho murder of Capt. John Rlluy at that place Sept. 14, 1875. He walked firmly to tlio gallows and as- cended the steps in tho same manner. In his speech he thanked his friends for their kindness and said he forgave every- one, He died easily.

Tho Last of Table Book, On tho 2'Uh till, Iho last of what was so long known as Table Rock, al Niag- ara, broke oft' and fell into tho river. The mass weighed nearly sixty tons and, up to 1870, names of visitois had been carved upon il. The part which fell on tho 24th composed only half of tho original rock, the resl having fallen in. On Saturday, Jan. a surface of the rock supposed to bo the side of half an aoro, forming Iho bod of Maiden Walk, broke loose and was precipitated into the immense chasm below. Tho crash was heard for a distance of five miles, and tho ollects in the immediate neighborhood resembled tho shock of an earthquake. Tlio water running under Iho bank Is supposed to have caused Iho fall on Iho 2'Uh, and Iho shock, when Iho rock struck the water, was distinctly felt three miles from tho falls, Several of tho trees which stood on the rock arc now soon standing in the river as erect as when in their original places on tho rock. Where tho rock shelved off from the bank, at a distance of twenty foot from the top, can bo soon the root of a tree estimated to bo two feet in diameter.

An idea of the ago which orange trees may attain is furnished by the history of tho magnificent one in the orangery of Iho Palace of Versailles, known by the name ot tho Grand Connetable, or Grand Bourbon, which is now 450 years old. It grew from some pips of a bitter orange planted in a pot at the commencement of the fifteenth century by Eloanorjot Castillo, wife of Charles III., King of Navarre. The young plants which sprang from tho seeds wero kept In tlio sumo tub at Pampeluna until 170D. In 1084, more than two centuries after, they were removed to Versailles.

Indians in Idaho on tho War Path, 8ix FHANCHCO, Juno Id, The following particulars of the In- Hail outbreak in Idaho have been re- ceived from On Iho 18th the jalmon River Indians and Joseph's bands on Camus Prairie, and four vhiles were killed on the Salmon River, icar the mouth of Wlilteblrd River. The iiulians attacked a settler's camp on the Braille, killed Benjamin Norton, his wife md two or lliicc olhcrs, attacked all the cams on the load, and had possession of ho whole prairie except the town of Ml. Idaho, which they threatened, Friday evening. A force of 100 troops, two 'rlendly Indians nnd several oilixcns left Cjiipwuy trarrisou under Hie command of Boon after the Capl, James Col. Perry for Ml, Idaho, news was received that Baker, Samuel Benedict, wile and four hildron, Harry Mason, Henry Klfcrmtml Warren's expressman had been killed on Salmon River; also a pack train of forty mules was attacked near Cold Spring, ,wo whites, named DavenportandOasley, killed, and two half-breed Indians es- caped. After the arrival of Col. Perry at Ml. Idaho a dispatch came through to the ef- fect that ho found the reports of those killed true, and that the Indians had gone to Salmon River. The troops went in pursuit. Messages from Kamokowa slate that twenty-nine whites had been killed, and the whiles had killed White Bird, the chief of the his fam- ily. troops, with 150 men from Ml. Idaho, encountered the Indians at the head of Whitebird Canon. The. troops dismounted and lefl a fewsoldicrs and iwenly friendly Indians to hold the horses. The Indians opened fire, and lighting was combined for some lime. The friendly Indians became ah'rmcd. The soldiers guarding the horses could sec that the Indians were gelling the bust of the llghl and thai the soldiers were relreating. Tho Captain of the and Sergl. Lyllle and one soldier are known to be killed. In military circles the outbreak is con- sidered serious. The Indians are brave and warlike and well supplied with arms. The total strength at the disposal of Gen. Howard, when all the troops placed under his orders are concentrated, will only reach about 800, while tlie strength of the Indians is estimated by some to be close on to though probably more reliable estimates will reduce the number of warriors to about half thai number, or al Ihe mosllo The scene of war is located in Idaho Territory, sixty miles from Lcwiston, oil what is known as Camas Prairie. The distance from Lewiston to Wnlluln by river is 100 miles, which is the nearest thirty miles. The Indians did not kill the women nnd children, but allowed them to bo taken under escort of a friendly squaw to Slate Creek, which lias thus far been lefl undisturbed. At Slato Creek Ihc whites have forti- fied themselves in a stockade fort, Into which has been received Ihe wives and children of the murdered men, together with the families of the men who had escaped the massacre. These women arc thus up in the midst of hostile Indians, without adequate means of de- fense, and wilhoul aid will certainly be overpowered and murdered, as the In- dians declare Ihclr determination to lake Ihe forl and murder the men. H can't bo hoped thai the Indiana will again spare tho women and children, after the losses they must sustain IncapUiringlbeforl.as the men will llghl to the last. Our Informant says ho is reliably In- foinied Dial the Indians did not lire a single building or destroy any property, bul cleaned Ihc country of stock, which they have driven to the south side of the Salmon River. They seem to hope that they will ultimately be the undisturbed proprietors of all the property the whites arc now compelled to abandon. They think, nol without rciifou, Unit before the country Is regained from them an army must bo created, and a long an J doubtful' campaign passed through. The Indians have now their principal camp and headquarters on the Salmon River, jusl below tho mouth of the small slrcnm called Skookumuhuck, while the stock is gathered and pastured on nn ex- tensive triangular-shaped region formed by the Siiuke and Salmon Rivers, and the high mountain range lying about the sources of FayuUo and Weyscr Rivers. Here there is abundant pasturage for summer and winter, and licie they will doubtless niako their Until stand. lu contradiction to the previous reports that thu troops behaved badly, our in- formant Is assured by citizens who weie In the light that the troops, though lliej allowed themselves lo be decoyed into ambush, displayed throughout the action the utmost gallantry and fought like tigers. About twenty-live or thiity sol diers wcic killed in about the same num- ber of minutes. The situation in Northern IduUo far exceeds in gravity any Indian outbreak of our day, and It would lax the besl re- sources of Iho Government and of Ihc people immediately interested lo subdue the Indians and restore peace lo the country. The Indians know the army on this coast is a skeleton, and the people helpless from want of arms. BAN I'lUNcinco, A telegram was received nl the army headquarters this nflernoim from Gen.

IloisR CITY, Wnlio, Juno SJ. By an arrival hero lust night tlio pre- vious reports of an Indian outbreak near Iho Salmon are substantially confirmed. The scene of Hie llrsl massacre was on Iho Salmon River nnd tributaries, Ihal stream coining in from the northern side, draining Camas Prairie and Ihe neighbor- ing mountains.
