Under Date of the 18th a London times correspondent at Tirnovan writes that a horrible massacre of the bulgarians by Bashiba souks bad occurred at Yeni Saghira. Not a soul would have escaped but for the arrival of the turkish regulars. The Bashi Bazoukas circassian and irregulars he says treat All villages they pass the same Way burning ravishing and pillaging. Turkish telegrams say a russian division entered the villages of Keston and Belovary on the 17th, Dis armed the Mussulman distributed their arms among the bulgarians and then massacred the men women and children and burned their dwellings.

Stated that the turks had been victorious in Battles at Yoni 8aghra and Plevna and the russians were retreating to the Balkans pursued by Sulie Man Pasha. On the 30tli ult. Osman Pasha telegraphed from Plevna a three Strong russian corps attacked us this morning. The cannonade lasted two hours. Then a general engagement ensued which lasted until ten of clock at night when the russians the russians Are making slow Progress before Silistria and Rustchak and meet with a desperate resistance. On the 31st ult. The russians attacked Renouf Pasha at Eski Saghira and after seven hours fighting the latter retreated to Kara Buna. Sulieman Pasha reinforced Renouf and they repulsed the enemy recaptured Eski Saghira with several guns and inflicted a considerable loss upon the russians. The grand Duke Alexis will command the Danube flotilla. A Tirnovan Telegram of the 2d says great preparations arc being made to retrieve the recent misfortune at Plevna. This de feat makes the russian hold in Bulgaria very precarious and compels the withdrawal of troops from other Points where they Are nearly As badly needed to beat the turks at Plevna. All the scattered russian troops now in the principalities have been summoned into Bulgaria. The Berlin press considers that the Battle puts an end to All Hope of terminating the War this year. The russian army in Asia minor has been largely reinforced and has resumed the offensive. The fighting before Kars is continuous. A St. Petersburg Telegram of the 3d says Russia has ordered the whole Imperial guard to prepare to proceed to Bulgaria. The operations of the russians in the do tie russians Defeated. London aug. I. The daily news correspondent telegraphed from Bulgarini gives a detailed account of the fighting of monday. The turkish Force was estimated Al 50,000. They occupied a series of positions which Are naturally Strong and also artificially fortified in every available spot forming a Horseshoe in front of Plevna with both flanks resting on the River yid. The russian Force consisted of the ninth army corps under Gen. Krudener the thirtieth division and thirtieth brigade the twentieth division under Prince Schacko Skoy with three brigades of cavalry and 160 guns. It was arranged that Gen. Krudener should attack the turkish Center at Rivica and the Northern flank of the entrenched position Over Mahova while Schacko Skoy attacked Radi Zero and Gen. Skobeleff held in Check the Strong turkish Force at Lorca which was the extremity of the turkish line. Gen. Krudener began the Battle about 9 30 of clock. After a Long bombardment he succeeded in silencing the turkish Cannon at Rivica but could not expel the infantry from the earthworks. He spent the whole afternoon unavailing by endeavouring to Force the Northern flank of the turkish position resisting after dark without having gained anything material and having himself suffered considerable loss. Prince Schacko Skoy about noon carried Ila Disevo and planting four batteries on the Ridge beyond bombarded the nearest turkish position which was an earthwork armed with Cannon in front of the entrenched Village. After an hours cannonade he silenced the turkish guns and his infantry after a Long and bloody contest carried the earthworks and Village. The second turkish position consisting of a redoubt and a series of entrenched vineyards strongly held was then attacked and ultimately carried but with terrible Effort and very severe loss owing to the heavy turkish artillery fire. The rus ians moreover were unable to utilize the captured position. About four of clock a Reserve brigade a 8 brought up and an attack made on the positions immediately covering Plevna. The attack continued till nearly Sunset. The turkish infantry was in great Force in a continuous line under the shelter of trenches. Despite the most stubborn efforts no impression could be made upon that line. Two companies of russian infantry did work round to the right of the turkish trenches and entered the town of Plevna but it was impossible to hold it. The russian batteries pushed boldly Forward into the position first taken to attempt to keep Down the turkish cannonade which was crashing into the infantry in open held but they w Ere compelled soon to evacuate the hazardous spot. At Sundown the turks made a continuous Forward movement and reoccupied their second position. The russian infantry made a succession of desperate stands and died like heroes. The turks gradually retook everything that they had lost. The fighting lasted Long after Nightfall. With darkness the Bashi Bazoukas took Possession of the Battlefield and slew All the wounded. The russians held the Heights above Ravize to but the Bashi Bazoukas worked to their rear and fell on the wounded collected in the Village of a Disevo. A Retreat was compelled in the direction of Bulgarini and the contingencies resulting from this untoward Battle Are of ominous significance. The Best of our weak strength cover the Bridge at Siskova. One cannot in this moment of hurried confusion realize All the possible results of this stroke so rashly courted. Not a russian Soldier stands Between Tirnovan and the victorious turkish army in Loreco and Plevna and Only a weak division stands Between Tirnovan and the Shumla army. I look on Prince Schack of Skoye a Force As wrecked As no longer for this Campaign to be counted As a fighting integer. It is not ten Days since the thirteenth division crossed the Danube in the Pride of its Superb condition. Now what of it is left is demoralized and shattered. This Side of the Balkans there remain but the ninth corps already roughly handled once at Nikoo Lis and once at Plevna one division of the eleventh corps and the Rustchak army. The russian strength is so bad that scattered detachments have been called up from out of Roumania and the romanian division commanded by Gen. Manue which crossed a Day or two ago at Nicopolis has been called up to the Aid of the Force on the Osma Side of the River. We Are just quitting this bivouac and falling Back on Bulgarini with All Speed leaving the bulgarian villages to the tender mercies of the turks. As i close i learn that on our left Gen. Skobeloff lost 300 men out of his single infantry battalion. A Sim Nitza dispatch estimates the russian loss in this Battle at Between 6,000 and 7,000 killed and wounded. Ohio hews items. Tirnovan. Bucharest aug. I. Gen. Krudener yesterday again attacked Plevna but after a desperate struggle was repulsed by the turks who were greatly Superior in numbers. An official Telegram from Osman Pasha giving an account of tuesdays fighting estimates the russian loss at 24,000 of t Force of ten divisions and says the russians retired to their Encampment. The russian army continues to receive reinforcements. This town now in the Power of the russians is the ancient capital of Bulgaria of which Rustchak is at present the scat of the administration. It is there that reigned at the end of the tenth Century the second Sclavo bulgarian dynasty of the Sismanidis heirs the Finno bulgarian driven out by the greek emperor. In 1186 Tirnovan was the residence of the bulgarian princes of the race of Asen who restored the former splendor of the kingdom. The Czar Kalojan one of the princes of the dynasty was the conqueror at Adrian Ople in 1265, of Beaudoin i., the first latin emperor of byzantium who after eight months of Captivity was precipitated from one of the rocks of the upper City. The Czar Boris in 1213, married at Tirnovan his daughter to the emperor of byzantium. By turns the bulgarian capital saw within its Walls the greeks the tartars the magyars. In the fourteenth Century came the turn of the turks. Sufficient attention has not been paid to the circumstances which facilitated the Conquest of the Mussulman. To explain it we have Only to study the chroniclers and historians who speak of the depravity of manners and the corruption of the great As of the people in those bulgarian countries. On the 17th of july 1393, Tchelebi the son of Baja zet took the Citadel of Tirnovan by assault. Soon the first mosque was constructed there and the greek Bishops allies however of the conquerors were assigned to a particular part of the City. In 1810 it had the russians in its Walls for some time. Since then it has ceased to be the political Center of Bulgaria while remaining one of the nuclei of the Sclavo propaganda. Down to 1867, the Date when the Vil yet of the Danube was created France Austria and Russia had at Tirnovan consulates since then suppressed. The Polar Colony. Brudsche have come to a standstill main column has retired to Miji Djie. The the Indian War in Idaho. Deer Lodge mont., july 29. A letter from gov. Potts says a a Joseph a band passed capt. Rawne a entrenchments on Lolo Trail Deer Ridge late yesterday afternoon within gunshot. Not a gun was fired at them the indians going out by the head of bitter Root and big Hole Are about 400 Strong Well Portland july 31. Gen. Howard is at present at Kamia awaiting the arrival of maj. Sanford. As soon As that officer joins him Howard will take All the available Force and push vigorously after Joseph and White Bird who have already crossed the bitter Root mountains by Way of the Lolo Trail. He will go through to Missoula As speedily As his command can move. He will have in the neighbourhood of 500 men. Another Force under command of Gen. Wheaton will leave fort Lap Way and moving North pass through the Spokane country and Cross Over into Montana through the Salon pass. After crossing the mountains the troops will push Down to Missoula where they will join Gen. Howard. It is expected that Howard s and Wheaton a detachments will reach that Point simultaneously. Wheaton will command about 450 or 500 troops. Any straggling bands of Hostiles which May have broken away from Joseph or White Bird and attempted to reach the Spokane country will be intercepted by Wheaton and Cut off. This movement will it is believed crush out the strength of the Hostiles and bring peace to the whole Region of the country West of bitter Root mountains and with the capture or the annihilation of Josephus and the White Bird bands of renegades will bring the War to a close. San Francisco aug. I. A dispatch from Gen. Howard dated july 29, says a a All my column with two Days rations Are South of the Clearwater. A March will be made in the shortest possible time. Col. Greene is nearly one Days March this Side of the Florence. Wheaton is at Lewiston. Everything is in the Best possible condition for the present and the capture of the enemy is certain providing that the Montana troops can Check his another defeat of the a wians London aug. 3. A correspondent sends from pored in near Plevna a graphic account of thurs Days Battle. The correspondent is with Prince Schacko Skoye a command and now All Hope of Success anywhere is lost nor did a Chance offer to make the Best of defeat. Prince Schacko Skoy had not a Man left to cover his Retreat. The turks struck without stint. They had the upper hand for once and were determined to show that they knew How to make the most of it. They advanced in swarms through the dusk on their orig Inal first position and captured the russian Cannon before the batteries could be withdrawn. Turkish shells began once More to whistle Over the Ridge above Rad Shova and fall into the Village behind now crammed with wounded. The streams of wounded wending their painful Way Over the Ridge were incessant. The badly wounded mostly Lay where they fell. Later in the darkness a Baleful sort of Kranke Traeger swarmed Over the Battle Field in the shape of Bashi Bazoukas who spared none lingering there. On the Ridge till the Moon Rose the staff could hear from below on the still night air the cries of pain and entreaties for Tiercy and the yells of blood thirsty fanatical Triumph. It was indeed an hour to wring the sternest heart. The turks had our Range before dark and we could watch the Flash of flame Over against us and then listen to the scream of a Shell As it Tore by us. The sound of bullets was incessant. A detachment at length began to come straggling up but it will give an idea of the disorganization to say that when a company was told off to cover somewhat the wounded in Rad Shova it had to be made up of men of several regiment. About three of clock the staff quilted the Ridge leaving it littered with groaning men and moving gently lest we should tread on the prostrate wounded we lost our Way As we had lost our army. At ten of clock in the morning having been in the Saddle since six on the previous Leif Wing we turned into a stubble Field and making Beds of reaped Grain correspondent and Cossack alike rested under the stars. But we were not even then allowed to rest before an alarm came that the Bashi Bazoukas were upon us and we had to Rouse and tramp away. The Only Protection of the chief of what in the morning was a Fine army was now a handful of wearied cossacks. Gen. Krudener sent word in the morning that he had lost severely and could make no headway and had resolved to fall Back on the River Osma. There had been talk of renewing the attack to Day with his co operation but it is a Plain statement of facts that we have no troops to attack with. The most moderate estimate is that we have lost two regiments say 5,000 men out of the three brigades a a ghastly number beating Ezelan or Friedland. This takes no account of Gen. Krudener a losses. We too retire on Osma River about Bulgarini and to new London conn., aug. 2. Capt. Howgate a Schooner Florence sailed to Day for the Arctic Ocean under command of capt. Tyson.

He called for Aid whereupon the crowd fled to a Saloon. Wilson followed shooting three times at Warner one shot grazing his ankle and another taking effect in his bowels. Wilson was again attacked in the Saloon by Warner and another Man and was so terribly beaten and kicked that his life was for a time despaired of.
