Beechworth Ovens and Murray Advertiser (Newspaper) - May 16, 1878, Beechworth, Victoria National Library of Australia arrival of the californian m ail. From the a Gus correspondent the Eastern question. London april s. In the House of lords Liis afternoon lord Beaconsfield in a retrospect of the government s past policy criticised the treaty of san Stefano drawing conclusions similar to those contained in lord Salis Bury s despatch. Although every article of the treaty was a deviation from the treaties of 1s56 and 1s71, he would not Call them violations because had they been considered at the Congress As England desired they might have been regarded As suggestions. He showed that the Possession of Bessarabia was not of trifling local interest. Lord Palmerston had strongly insisted upon its cession to Roumania As involving the Independent navigation of the Danube. The Congress could not take place after Russia s refusal to conform to her previous engagements Ancl to tie treaty of pans. To pointed out various ways in which the existing situation in tie East imperilled the British Empire. He could not conceive Why England should be unarmed when All other Powers were aiming. The British Empire must be maintained. Lord Granville criticised the details of the government s past policy but declared that he would not commit himself or his friends Oil the present question but leave the government to their own responsibility. Upon a general review of the situation he Drew conclusions favourable to peace. Lord Derby denied that calling out tie reserves was the sole or principal cause of his difference with his late colleagues. Mat ters at present were at a deadlock where neither Side would give Way for fear of loss of dignity. He would not press mat ters and increase groundless irritation. He denied the existence of an emergency justifying tie calling out of tie reserves. The Only conceivable motive for haste of which however lie would not accuse tie government was to take advantage of the War feeling in the country. Even an austrian Alliance was very doubtful and All other Powers were certain to stand aloof. Why under these circumstances should England be not Only Drifting but Rushing into a purposeless War head fitted that circumstances might Force England into a War but at present he could see no ground therefor. Lord Cairns said tie so Nuncess of the in crease of the army did not justify lord Derby s inferences. Lord Salisbury s circular. Hie circular to the Powers bears Date april 1, and is signed by the Marquis of Salisbury. It summarises All recent correspondence and after giving Russia s refusal to consent to England s demand relative to placing the treaty As the whole before the Congress continues her majesty s government deeply regrets Russia s decision. Even if a considerable portion of tie stipulations of the treaty were Likely to be approved Russia s reservation relative to their discussion would nevertheless be open to most serious objections. Every material stipulation of the treaty involves departures from the treaty of 1s56, and by Trio declaration signed at London in 1871, it is impossible for her majesty s government to acquiesce in the withdrawal from the conference of the Powers of articles which Are modifications of existing treaties. The combined effect of the stipulations Spon the interests of tie Powers also furnished conclusive reason against separate discussion of any one portion of Vliem. By the articles relative to new Bulgaria a Strong slav state will be created under the auspices and control of Russia who will thus secure a Prepend rating political and commercial influence in the Black and Aegean seas. A considerable greek population although it views the Prospect with alarm will he merged into the slav Community. The provisions by which Russia will practically choose the ruler for Bulgaria while a russian administration frames and a russian army controls the first working of its institutions sufficiently indicate of what political system it will in future form a part. The stipulations for the better government of thessaly and Epirus in themselves highly commendable Are accompanied by conditions the general effect of which will be to increase the Power of Russia to the prejudice of Greece and every other country having interest in the Eastern Mediterranean. Tie territorial Severance of constantinople from european provinces still left under its government will deprive the Porte of any political strength which might have been derived from their Possession and expose their inhabitants to a serious risk of anarchy. The acquisition of Bessarabia and Batum makes Russia dominant Over All the Vicinity of the Black sea while the acquisition of armenian strongholds secures Lier influence Over the population of that province Aud enables her to arrest Trade Between Europe and Persia. The indemnity stipulated for is evidently beyond Turkey s Means even not considering tie portion of Lier Revenue hypothecated to other Prince Gor Schakoff s reply. London april 9. The tunes publishes the full text of Prince Gort Schakoff reply to lord Salis Bury s circular despatch. The Prince contests lord Salisbury s assertions Point by Point. But tie general tone of his reply appears conciliatory. He denies that the treaty of san Stefano creates a Strong slav state under control of Russia and declares that the arrangements rela Tive to Bulgaria Are Only a development of principles established by the constantinople conference. He continues " lord Salisbury admits that a return to the programme of that conference pure and simple is rendered impossible by the War. Bulgaria will he under russian control no More than Romeania a Liili also owes its existence to Russia. Russia is quite ready to abridge the term of occupation of Bulgaria As much As possible. The limits of Bulgaria have Only been indicated in general terms in accordance with the nationalities of the population and the details will he left to a mixed commission. The Only object in assigning seaports to Bulgaria is to assist the com Mercial development by which England and the Mediterranean Powers whose Commerce has always been a powerful lever for their political influence Are Likely to profit far More than Prince Gorts Mliakoff " expresses Surprise at the objections to tie stipulations of the treaty relative to thessaly and Epirus. By the modest reforms stipulated for it is intended to avoid the appearance of either establishing russian supremacy on the one hand or utterly neglecting the greeks on tie other. Russia did not forbid tie Porte to consult european Powers As Well As Russia on reforms for tie greek provinces. There is 110 longer Ain pretext for debarring Russia from the Possession of Bessarabia As the Freedom of the Danube is secured by an International commission. The famine in China. By advices at san Francisco from Hong Kong to the 13tli March it is stated that two gentlemen recently returned to Tien Tsin from a torn in the famine districts give a most distressing account of some portions through which they passed. In Many villages fully half the houses have been despoiled of All their Wood doors windows beams a. Which had been sold for Mere trifles to procure food leaving Only tie mud Walls standing in some cases the beams being sold As fuel at three Cash for two fatties. In tie clip Chow District scarcely any animals Are to be seen and Many of the villages Are half deserted indeed in some villages it was said that More than half the people had gone away and of those left Accord ing to the local constables statement and in villages of 60 to 80 families the remainder were being decreased by death at the rate of one daily. Tie District is Likely to he almost ruined by the time the crops come again. The University boat race. London april 13. The thirty fifth race Between the Oxford and Cambridge Crews took place this morning Over the usual course and resulted in an easy Victory for the Oxford Crew. The morning broke hazy and slightly overcast but Calm and mild. By half past 9 o clock the Sun was shining and the weather was perfect for the race. Lne water was smooth and tie crowd of spectators was immense along the entire course Especial at the two ends. The flitting Craft of All kinds gave to the River an animated appearance. The betting at Putney before the Start was 4 to 1 on Oxford freely offered with no takers the result being considered certain. A Start was effected at 15 minutes after 10 o clock. Cambridge had the Middlesex Side of the River Oxford tie Surrey Side. Cambridge got off first rowing a faster stroke than Oxford. The Gan tags led by a third of a length when Oft Simmond s Yard and continued to increase this advantage somewhat on the first reach. When off Bishop s Creek tie Cambridge boat was almost half a length ahead. Cambridge slightly added to this advantage and just below the site of tie old half mile Post led by something like two thirds of a length. At tie lower end of tie Garden at Craven cottage three furlongs from Bishop s Creek where Cambridge was rowing 38 strokes to the minute Oxford began to come up fast and were soon gaining. At grass wharf they had got upon even terms with Cambridge and the two boats rowed oar and oar past Rose Bank Villa. Off Crabtree a mile and two furlongs from Putney Oxford was showing in front and quickly Drew ahead the Cambridge Crew becoming unsteady and irregular. Off the soap works two furlongs from crab tree Oxford was Clear ahead and rowing right away from their opponents and led through Hammersmith Bridge a mile and six furlongs from Putney by about Hoo lengths. From this Point the race requires no description. Oxford continued to in crease the Lead being fully a dozen lengths ahead off Chiswick Church and perhaps 10 lengths at Barnes Bridge about seven furlongs further on. Oxford continued a Long Way in front to the end and won very easily by about 35 seconds in time or by Many lengths in 23 minutes and 12 seconds. The murder of lord Leitrim. In the House of commons on the 12th april or o Donnell member for Dun Garvon and vice president of the Home Rule confederation of great Britain moved that the government s action in regard to the murder of lord Leitrim was unconstitutional and proceeded to make ail attack on lord Leitrim s private character. A motion to exclude strangers was carried. Or Gladstone who voted in the minority was loudly hooted by tie conservatives and there was a scene of great excitement. Air o Donnell s motion a is ultimately negatived. Particulars of the assassination of the Earl of Leitrim state that the Earl left his residence at Milford shortly after s o clock accompanied by Liis clerk and was driving on an outside car to deny to meet his solicitor. He always carried arms. It is supported that the assassins concealed themselves behind a Low embankment Between the Road and Plantation and that having first shot lord Leitrim they shot his clerk and the Driver so that there might he no witnesses. His lordship s Valet was driving about a mile behind and on coming up found his master and the clerk lying dead on the Road. Life was still in the Driver. The assassins meanwhile escaped in a boat across Mulroy Bay. The Valet drove Back to Milford and alarmed the police who coining to the place found the Driver still alive but unconscious. He died shortly afterwards. There is no doubt the Mur Der was agrarian. The relations Between tie Earl of Leitrim and his tenants were unfriendly. His lordship was kind and Liberal to the poor but a is very particular and exacting in his dealings with the Tenanty visiting with unsparing severity the slightest infraction of the rules of the estate. " the times in an editorial on the assassination says it is no exaggeration to say that tie news of the murder which caused such a profound sensation in the House of commons yesterday struck this country with As much pain and amazement As an unprovoked declaration of two men named m Taggart and Hiel have been arrested on Board a Steamer going from rat Mulien to Londonderry on suspicion of complicity in the murder. Extraordinary scene at the funeral. Tie scenes at the funeral in Dublin on tie 11th beg Gared description. The mob that gathered in front of the Church endeavoured to capture the Hearse declaring their intention to drag out the Corpse. They Vitus rated the late Earl As an old Ruffian and heretic. They also climbed tie Wall of the churchyard hustled the mourners and cheered yelled and hissed during the Reading of the funeral service. Several mourners were roughly handled while endeavouring to make their Way into the churchyard. Some of Vliem had to pass out by an a frequented Way in the rear of the Church to escape violence. Fifty constables were present hut were wholly insufficient to Cope with tie mob Many of whom were drunk. Riot in Toronto. O Donovan Rossa lectured at St. Patrick s Hall Toronto Canada on the evening of March 18, to an audience of about 100 people. A tremendous1 riot be tween catholics and protestants followed. The subject of the lecture was " Ireland her trials and her it of tie scribed As having been very tame but during the delivery the continuous Volley of stones that riddled All the windows enlivened the oct Sion. At its conclusion the audience left by twos and threes and Rossa passed through the crowd unrecognised and was driven Oft in a cab. The Street s in the Vicinity of the Hall were crowded by thousands of people who apparently congregated Iky see a fight but not to participate. Shortly after Midnight the mob advanced up Qucen Street and attacked Congress s tavern. The crowd inside answered with revolvers1 and the rioters returned the lire hundreds of shots were exchanged and stones1 poured into the hotel until the window sashes and furniture were completely demolished. The police 90 Strong charges the Knob and wielded their Batons with great Vigour four men were shot one a Young pro Testant James Clegg fast by. In be meantime another mob a the nutty id Strong opened fire with stones on co 11ms s tavern further up Queen Street where Rossa was believed to he. Revolvers were used but the police fighting with matchless Pluck against enormous Odds cleared the track. Rossa was driven out of town at 11 o clock. Probably 150 rioters were injured with stones and Batons. England and America. Tie " Chicago times " London special says that much discussion is occurring As to the attitude of the United states in Case of a War Between England and Russia. The general impression prevails that tie Federal government will be thoroughly impartial from an appreciation of right. There Are some utterances to the effect that the United states will not dare to allow sending out privateers for fear of a War with England and that they would proceed to bombard every seaport from Maine to Florida. Some United states senators propose to memorialize the government of great Britain against interruption of peaceful relations with Russia.
