Hon. John Sherman Secretary of the Treasury delivered a speech at Mansfield Ohio on the evening of the 17th, on the issues of the Day. In opening he said he spoke for himself alone.

Of the first he said a the whole Southern policy of president Hayes is to secure constitutional rights not Only by Legal but by peaceful Means but if this fails if i do not greatly err he will not be wanting in the exercise of the full Powers of his great office to secure the civil rights of All without distinction of race or color or he said he shared in the disappointment of Many republicans As to the result in Louisiana but he knew that every step taken by president Hayes was right in strict accordance with his constitutional duty and from the highest motive of patriotism on the subject of civil service Reform he said the object of the president was to end the abuse of office holders running the politics of the country. The right of any officer to vote or express his opinions on Public questions is not denied but he is forbidden to take part in manipulating caucuses and conventions for selfish ends or to interfere in Anju Way with free Choice in popular movements.

Sherman said a currency of United states notes based upon the Public credit always convertible into Coin and so limited Iii amount and supported by revenues that its convertibility cannot be endangered and supplemented by a Bank currency free and open to All alike based upon Public securities so that in any event the note bolder is Safe from loss always redeemable in Coin or United states notes unlimited in amount except by the wants of business this is the kind of paper Money that will Start again the wheels of Industry give sails to your Commerce and labor to your artisans. This indeed would be the Best paper currency in the world. In regard to the labor and railway question the Secretary said his conclusion reached years ago was that the framers of the Constitution had wisely provided an arbiter to govern by general Laws inter state railways and May in this Way prevent controversies Between capital Aud labor where they affect the Commerce of the country.

He took the drug under the impression that it was quinine and returning Home administered three grains to the sick child. When the fatal mistake was discovered every Effort was made to save the child but in vain.

A Kara Bunar correspondent says appalling accounts continue to come in of the misery of the fugitives from the District devastated by Bashi Bazoukas and bulgarians. Thousands of women and children Are homeless and perishing for want of shelter medical attendance and food. The correspondent Speaks favourably of the turkish regulars but severely blames the government for employing or not controlling the irregulars who commit the worst excesses. Even fugitive women and children who come for Protection to the turks have to be guarded by the regular troops lest they should be further injured by these Savages. The bulgarians Are behaving much in the same Way As the Bashi Bazoukas. It will be impossible for christians and Mohammedans to Ever live together again in the disturbed districts. Even Philo rus sians severely condemn russians conduct in first instigating the bulgarians to revolt and then leaving them to the mercy of the turks whose right to treat them As rebels is hard to question. The turkish legation complains of the russians near Kars firing upon a Flag of truce and wounding Osman Effendi. Twelve unarmed Mussulman of the Village of so Koulou near Erski Saghira surrendered to the russians and seven of them were massacred by bulgarians and three by cossacks. At Batak a Village strictly Mohammedan District of Siskova too houses were burned and too men and 300 women perished. It is believed that seven inhabitants survived. At Salovan a Mussulman Village District of Tirnovan 250 houses were burned. Several Hundred men and 1,200 women perished. One person it is believed escaped. At Caba Bonnas too houses were burned and 200 men and 300 women perished. Two persons escaped. At Kes Tambal 150 houses were burned 300 men and 600 women perished. At chem a mixed Village 60 Mussulman houses were destroyed. One Hundred and Twenty men and 300 women perished. One person Only escaped. At Tundra a mixed Village too houses were destroyed and 250 men and 400 women perished. There Are three survivors. The villages abandoned upon the approach of the russians were Given to the flames and nearly 5,000 houses were destroyed. The legation concludes from information received that the russians have adopted an uniform system to try to seize defenceless villages and after destroying them with Cannon shot to massacre the unarmed inhabitants and carry off the women. The russians threaten Christian villages with the same Fate if they do not surrender or if their inhabitants refuse to be enrolled. A Bucharest correspondent telegraphs i have written the following As i received it and from the terrible accounts which fugitives continually bring Over the Balkans i fear it must be Only too True. July 31, the Day of the russian evacuation of Eski Saghira the turks ordered that All christians men women and children should be shot As they left their houses. Those who remained within were Burnt alive. An order was Given to Burn Down and destroy every particle of Christian property. Many leading turkish merchants took part in the affair. One dispatched a Large number of Bashi Bazoukas All Over the Tsz Chernau District. This District is one of the richest in that part of Turkey. It contains a very Large proportion of christians Over thirty churches and 400 schools and. Colleges All of which have been burned. The destruction extended to the villages of bog dam Mah Alesi Rani Mahles and Many others in All about sixty containing from 150 to 200 families each. Scarcely fifty persons escaped alive. The bulgarian fugitives at Gap Rovo and Selvia estimate that from 12,000 to 15,000 christians have been massacred in the Eski Saghira and chirp districts alone. Soldiers were posted along the Road from Eski Saghira to Kazalia with orders to shoot everybody passing. _ the opposing armies. London aug. 15. In the Balkans fragments of Gen. Gourka a corps Are entrenching in Shipka pass. The eighth corps appointed to support them is Echelon de Between Zelvis Bren Ovaland Tirnovan. A division of the eleventh corps occupies Koya Rawitz. Against these troops which form the bulk of the russian forces in Western Bulgaria a turkish army corps is steadily advancing from Shumla via Osman Bazar. Sulieman Pasha too with a portion of his army is advancing in the direction of Elena. Lastly some of Osman a men Are marching from to Vatz on Garrova. The russian reinforcements Are More than counterbalanced by the troops which the turks Are receiving from Asia. The sanitary condition of the russians is so much worse than that of the turks that the Gap occasioned by sickness among the former almost establishes an equilibrium of forces.

The american troops comprised eight incomplete regiments five companies from Berkshire county Massachusetts col. Simmons the sixth new Hampshire col. Nichols the eleventh new Hampshire col. Hobart incorrectly Given Hubbard in the reports the twelfth new Hampshire col. Stickney and a Hundred scouts col. Emerson. Vermont was represented by a Small Force of militia col. Williams a regiment from Bennington and the towns adjoining col. Brush and the Green Mountain rangers col. Herrick. The Continentals of Warner 140 in number and Emerson a men were yet several Miles Distant. These organizations were in process of formation few of them being half filled. None had a distinctive uniform except the rangers a body of Davy Crockett men dressed in frocks with Green facings. In the tactics of the Forest these rangers were at Home being a Good match for the indians whose whoop they nearly imitated in their night countersign which was a a three hoots of an the commander of the americans with the trusty Warner at his Side moved rapidly through the Camp. He was in the prime of life forty nine years old dressed As a Continental brigadier and mounted on a Beautiful Brown Colt. His Only staff officer was Warner sixteen years his Junior and his medical department numbered but one or two surgeons. The entire Force was about 1,750, of which new Hampshire furnished about 1,000 Vermont 500 and old Berkshire 250. A regiment from Worcester county Massachusetts advanced As far As old Hadley to participate in the action but being too late for the service returned. Baum a Force comprised about 1,000, of whom 150 were indians 200 tories too Fraser a marksmen too Canadian rangers 50 Chasseur and 370iiiedesel�?Ts dragoons or hessians acting As infantry. This number is nearly twice As Large As Given by Burgoyne in his official report to Germain but this general a veracity when he had a purpose to serve was of an exceedingly elastic order. The British prisoners and dead numbered the next Day Over 900, and Burgoyne a orderly Book makes his loss in the two engagements Over 1,200. The disposal of Baum a Force was Well made the tories or Peters corps with a Small platoon of hessians held the Small Hill the canadians were posted in the log houses a few hessians were posted in the breastworks West of the Bridge the Chasseur were at the East Declivity of the Large Hill while the remainder of the hessians were in the redoubt surrounded by the Indian scouts in the Forest. The German commander evidently wished to avoid Battle at half past nine he withdrew his outposts leaving the indians Only in the Forest to guard against Surprise. As mid Day approached the americans were massed to receive orders the locality was a Large Field the Entrance to which was by sliding bars and tall posts Peculiar to the Vicinity. Stark leaped to the Topmost rail steadied himself by the tall Post and harangued his troops in the Well known sentences a a now my men yonder Are the hessians they were bought for seven pounds ten Pence a Man. Are you Worth More prove it. To night the american Flag floats Over yonder Hill or Molly Stark sleeps a widow a throwing Knapsacks jackets and All baggage in heaps and placing a guard Over them the Force started. Col. Herrick a rangers with the Bennington militia 300 Strong were sent to make a Detour to Baum a right col. Nichols with 350 men was sent to the rear of the enemy a left the two forces when joined to make an attack 200 men under col. Stickney and col. Hobart including part of the Berkshire militia were sent against the tory works with directions to keep concealed in a Corn Field near by and await the opening of the action at Baum a Hill. Foreseeing that there would be close work with the tories who were in citizens dress like his own Force Stark gave directions to the attacking party that a Corn Husk in the hat band should be the badge of his own men. A guard under a sergeant was posted near the Bridge to prevent communication Between the two wings of the enemy during the movements of the flanking parties and the disposal of the forces was Complete. As a cover to his designs Stark now moved Forward his Reserve and employed the time in marching slowly around Ahil i in full vie of the enemy. This seemed to perplex Baum As his servant Henry Arche Laus afterwards said a the scanned the movement with a Field Glass and directed his artillery to fire on the this cannonade did no great harm and the ruse was continued with a variety of movements for nearly three hours. At length about three of clock the flanking parties had reached their coveted position and communicated with each other. Nichols was the first to open fire. The indians retired before the advancing line and panic struck fled to the redoubt reporting that the Forest was full of Yankees. Seeing the column closing with a tightening Coil around the Hill the Savages dashed through the opening Between the two detachments in single file and Yelling like demons made their escape leaving a few of their number dead or prisoners. As the line pressed up to Musket Range Baum opened a fire of Small arms and brought one of the Cannon Forward to the Angle left exposed by the flight of his Savage allies. The action became hot on both sides but the assailants being sheltered by Trees and Brush received Little injury from the hessian fire delivered breast High without aim. New developments and attacks now rapidly ensued in every Quarter the discharge of musketry was rapid continuous and obstinately maintained for nearly an hour when an explosion occurred in the redoubt that Shook the kill by its violence sending blinding smoke and flying fragments among the combatants. Appalled at the detonation there was a momentary Lull among both parties. The Tumbri or ammunition cart of the hessians had exploded. Comprehending instantly the Accident the americans with a cheer along the whole line made a dash for the parapet. No troops could withstand such a tide it poured in at every Angle with an impetuosity that defied resistance muskets clubbed were opposed to bayonets Saber and Pike came into full play. Baum was driven Back unable to use his artillery and All discipline in both forces seemed lost except where the German commander and a few steady hessians charged with Saber when unable to Load muskets. Part of Fraser a marksmen rushed Over the parapet and leaving a few of their number dead and wounded escaped. Baum was mortally wounded by a shot and the Force around him panic struck fled Down the Hill to the South where Stark a forces were advancing to meet them. The action on the Plain below with the tories under Pfister and the canadians in the log houses was but the sanguinary counterpart of the scene at the redoubt. At the first discharge from Nichols column the concealed troops rushed through the Corn receiving three volleys which they did not deign to return until they emerged from their cover upon a Field of flax at the foot of the breastworks. Here girdled decayed types gave them partial shelter and behind these some of the men placed themselves while others sought the cover of the rank flax and Corn. A rapid and Dan tenuous fire now commenced on both sides. A Small platoon of hessian in the breastworks delivered at rapid intervals their fire without aim giving Way at each discharge to the tories who with handkerchiefs tied As turbans appeared alternating their volleys rapidly with the regulars. At the explosion in the Large redoubt up the Stream a charge was made with a whoop and Hurrah on the tories. It was now Cor Husk against turban in a desperate death grapple. Musket stocks supplied the place of bayonets on to til sides. The enemy was pushed backs twister fell mortally wounded and the remnant around him called for Quarter. The canadians seeing the capture of the two strongholds surrendered with the Chasseur who hemmed in made Little or no resistance. The first fight was woo. A Hasty disposal was made of the prisoners. The tories numbering about 160, were tied by pairs to a leading rope with a horse attached the remaining captives about 450, were permitted the honors of War being marched in close ranks with a Strong flank guard to Bennington. Here they were quartered in the Church. 5 it was now nearly six of clock. Stark and Warner hastened to the Baum attended by his faithful servant Henry and a hessian surgeon was being removed from the Field. Looking around at the fearful work made in the redoubt Stark remarked that the americans had fought like hell hounds. Truly said Baum a they fought More like hellhound than Baum and Pfister were taken to the same House a mile Distant in Shaftesbury where both died the following Day ill. W.
