A correspondent telegraphs independently of a Retreat being made necessary by the disaster at Plevna Gen. Gourka a forces were outnumbered by the Superior forces of the turks and although the russians gained a Brilliant Victory at Yenis amp Gera july 30, Gen. Gourka was compelled to Retreat the following Day although in sight of Eski Saghira where he was obliged to leave the bulgarian legion operating As a separate body to their Fate. The right column consisting of the bulgarian legion two batteries and three regiments of cavalry were to March upon Eski Saghira. The Central column under Gen. Gourka himself consisting of a Rifle brigade a regiment of cossacks and four batteries marched from Kazan Lik. The left column of five battalions of infantry two batteries and some cossacks marched from Hain Koi pass the objective Point of All being Yeni Saghira. The result was the destruction of the bulgarians and the rout of Gourka who had however previously effected a Junction with the left column. Gourka marched upon Dzur Anli on the Road to Eski Saghira ignorant of the fact that some 30,000 turks confronted him. The turkish batteries swept the Road. Nevertheless Gourka came into action sending Forward five battalions of infantry covered by artillery. Lie had forty eight horses killed in one Battery and eight in another. The turks made desperate attempts to turn his flanks but were repulsed by the assistance of Prince Leuchten bergs a cavalry who had Cut their Way out from Eski Saghira where the bulgarians were beset by 20,000 turks. Gourka Small As was his Force resolved on an attempt to Succour them and in the meantime determined to maintain his position. But his Resolution quailed before the appearance of two massive columns of turks marching on his flank and rear and he had to leave the bulgarians to shift for themselves and make Good his own Retreat. Of the bulgarian legion which was originally 1,600 Strong Only 400 or 500 managed to reach Shipka pass. Exclusive of the bulgarian loss Gourka lost 3.000 men in the fight of the 30th and 31st of july.

The Shipka pass is strongly fortified armed with Twenty eight guns and garrisoned by a regiment of the i Kwh division. Two regiments hold Hain Koi pass which presents a series of formidable defences. Cossack outrages. London aug. 21. A correspondent at Yeni Saghira telegraphs a a i went with the turkish army on the 14th to chains Agha. At Lane i two hours and a half from the pass i saw the bodies of 120 persons murdered by cossacks and bulgarians. Among the victims were two women one very Beautiful and Young. She had been killed and thrown naked in a Pool of water. I saw families including children who had been thrown into a Well. The houses of these people and the handsome embroidered dresses of the women showed that they had been Rich. In one House the women and Young girls had been shut up and subjected during ten Days to outrages by cossacks and bulgarians. The bulgarians when they heard of the arrival of the turkish army at chains Agha carried off the turkish women and children from three to thirty years of age and fled to the Balkans. The victims whom i spoke about were All collected together and murdered in succession. Many More were butchered but i have not had time to go and see a one never hears an English lady speak of her a sewing a whenever she mentions this feminine occupation it is always her miss Johnson a plan. One of the most striking characteristics of woman is her cheerful perseverance in looking under the bed for a Man. No Man in his right senses Ever looks under the bed for a woman but there Are millions of women in this country who would find it quite impossible to sleep in any bed under which they had not previously searched for the concealed Man. Experience is lost upon them. The average unmarried woman of forty years of age has usually looked under the bed at least 7,500 times without Ever once finding the expected Man but she is not in the least discouraged by so Long a course of failure and it would be easy to find woman of eighty or ninety years who still nightly search for the Man whom they have never found. Miss Johnson of Evanston will hereafter be famous As a women whose Long perseverance has been signally rewarded. It would be indelicate to inquire into her precise age had she not described herself in a recent affidavit As having been born in the year 1834, and we May therefore take it for granted that she is at least forty three years old. If we assume that she began to look under the bed at the age of fifteen it follows that she has performed that ceremony More than 10,000 times. Until last Friday night she never found the smallest fragment of a Man under her bed but on that eventful night her perseverance was rewarded and the Long sought Man greeted her astonished gaze. Miss Johnson being an unmarried lady not wholly unconnected with the milliners Trade and full of womanly Independence resides entirely alone in a Small House containing but three rooms a Kitchen shop and bed room. Dogs she despises and cats she mistrust while As for men she regards them As poor creatures who May possibly have their uses in time of drought when water must be carted from the Creek but who As a Rule make More trouble about a House than their necks Are Worth. Holding these views it naturally follows that miss Johnson lives alone and the Cool bravery with which she locks up her House at night and seeks her solitary Couch no matter if a first class thunderstorm is in Progress has for years been the admiration of the More timid of her sex. It was about eleven of clock last Friday night when miss Johnson stooped Down and looked under her bed for a possible Man precisely As she had done on ten thousand previous nights. Whether she was or was not astonished at perceiving a Large sized Man lying under the bed with the Back of his head toward her will ver be known hut at any rate she gave no sign of astonishment and did not even inform the Man that she saw him. On the contrary she resumed with great deliberation the nocturnal twisting of her Back hair and even softly hummed a a hold the fort with As much distinctness As could be expected of a women while holding a comb Between her Teeth. Her Back hair being finally finished she opened her window turned Down the lamp until it gave Forth a dim and modest Light and then a stepped gracefully into bed but not to sleep. That sagacious woman was perfectly Well aware that the Man under the bed not suspecting that he had been discovered would creep Forth with a View to plunder As soon As he found that she was asleep. The Bedstead stood in the Corner of the room and from the position of the Man it was Plain that he would creep out at the Side of the bed. Miss Johnson therefore changed her usual manner of composing herself to rest and Lay As she subsequently expressed it a Flat As a cake a with her head projecting Over the Side of the bed at the precise locality where she expected the Man to appear. For at least half an hour she Lay perfectly still watching for the Man with a Stealthy vigilance that would have done credit to an astute and experienced cat. Not a muscle or a hairpin of her Frame moved and her breathing was As slow and regular As that of a profound Sleeper. At length the Man confident that she was asleep softly began to worm himself from under the bed moving after the manner prescribed by Way of penalty to the original Serpent of the Garden of Eden. Little did he imagine that a pair of pitiless Gray eyes were waiting for the appearance of his head while a pair of tithe and nervous hands were ready to pounce upon his ears. It was not Many minutes however before each ear was suddenly caught in an inexorable grasp and his head began to oscillate with remarkable Speed Between the floor and the Edge of the Bedstead. Yon Moltke himself could not have surpassed miss. Johnson a tactics. She had the Man completely at her mercy and he was As helpless As though his head were in the stocks. At first his captor maintained a grim silence but after she had bumped him sufficiently to ease her mind she addressed him upon the wickedness and Folly of seeking to Rob her. In vain did the Man protest that his motives were innocent that he had mistaken the House and had merely intended to take a quiet Nap under his own Bedstead where the flies could not find him. Miss Johnson sternly told him that he could not make her believe any such nonsense and that she would a let him know a and would also a show these threats were carried out by a renewal of the bumping process until the Man yelled for mercy so loudly that the neighbors were aroused and rushed to miss Johnson a House with a firm conviction that a gang of burglars had murdered that excellent woman and were quarrelling Over the division of her spoils. It was not until a Strong Force armed with clubs and hatchets had recklessly entered the room that miss Johnson surrendered her captive with the remark that the sooner they took themselves off the better and that if any other Man would like to hide under her bed she was entirely ready to Knock a Little sense into him. Thus this intrepid woman not Only defended herself with the most signal Success but she pointed out the True Way to Deal with a Man under the bed.

Miss Johnson a plan on the contrary places a Man under the bed entirely at the mercy of a Cool and courageous woman and those women who May at any time hereafter find a Man under their respective Beds will do Well to imitate her example and share her we Learned glory.�?2y. Y. Times. Very romantic. Five years ago last july the wife of a Well to do provision dealer while out in Central Park accompanied by a Little daughter left the Carriage near the mall and started off to enjoy the Shady walks of the Beautiful Park. Little May gambled upon the Green Sward and peered into the hidden retreats while her Mother occupied a seat on one of the benches. Unnoticed by the Mother the Little girl strayed out into the Carriage Way which was lined with fast teams. A piercing scream fell upon the mothers ear and springing up she was horrified to see Little May right in front of a double team whose Driver was vainly drawing the reins to save the child. At the very moment when she expected to see her Little treasure crushed or killed a coloured liveried servant sprang from a Carriage seized the child and hurled it beyond the reach of the horses was knocked Down himself run Over and severely injured. The gratitude of the Mother for the salvation of her child found vent in a profusion of thanks. With her costly embroidered handkerchief she stroked and wiped the blood from the wounds of the Gallant mulatto and after ascertaining his name requested him to Call at her House and receive the thanks of her husband. The Lackey did Call and received a substantial present for his bravery and was dismissed with the admonition that if he Ever lost his situation he must apply to or. Two years passed and adversity robbed the provision dealer of the greater part of his wealth and he became a bankrupt. Six months later Little May a father died leaving his family consisting of mrs. And Little May Only a few thousand dollars to face the Vicissitudes of life. The widow who was still Young opened a fashionable boarding House which she had furnished with the remnant of her late husbands estate and eked out a respectable subsistence. A few months ago the mulatto presented himself at the residence reported that he was out of employment and was at once installed in the House As waiter and Ihan of Allwork. But the most remarkable part of the Romance is that the fair widow became enamoured of the comely charms of Henry spent much of her time in his society and finally they were married by a new Jersey Justice. Henry still remained the modest waiter and purchasing agent for the House none of the boarders suspecting the new relations Between the couple. It was Only when the Justice called at the House a few Days ago to see an acquaintance and recognized them As the parties he had married that their Well kept secret leaked out. The Only reference to the matter in the City papers was a Little paragraph that a lady living in a fashionable Quarter up town had married a coloured Man and by Means of staining materials was endeavouring to make her complexion conform to that of her new lord and .

A Columbus dispatch of the 24th says a the people of Westerville a Small Village fourteen Miles North of this City Are greatly agitated Over the recent appointment of a pos mistress for the Village Post office in the person of mrs. Coggeshall widow of the late u. S. Minister to Ecuador. An indignation meeting was held last night at which resolutions were passed calling upon president Hayes to cancel the appointment on the ground that the citizens did not wish any change made that the appointment was secured by outside influence and that they object because whenever a change should become necessary they have widows in their midst made so by the rebellion who being permanent residents should receive Public patronage in preference to strangers. Mrs. Coggeshall was formerly a resident of this City but has lived in ayes Ervile for a year past. Certain charges of negligence were made against the postmaster and investigated by a special agent of the department but what the official report of the matter was has not been made known. Mrs. Coggeshall is a lady of very limited Means but intelligent and competent and a personal acquaintance of president and mrs. Hayes to both of whom she addressed letters asking the appointment to the Westerville office in Case a change was made. The office is Worth $900 per annul. The resolutions were forwarded to the postmaster general. There is intense feeling in the Village Over the the fast freight barnacles. The discussion of the labor problem especially As it involves railroads covers a wide Field. Our reporters have investigated one phase and in our last Issue were printed the results which give one very important reason Why railroads Are unable to dividends and Are compelled to reduce the wages of their employees. In an interview with a very prominent Railroad official the latter let in a flood of Light upon this subject speaking in a general Way of Railroad business. One Case will illustrate the whole. In order to attract custom the railroads allow a rebate to heavy shippers. A Large mercantile House makes an annual contract with the roads or with the fast freight lines which live upon the roads at a certain rate say seventy five cents per Hundred. The House pays this rate and then at any time it pleases lays claim to a rebate of forty five cents which is allowed leaving thirty cents which must be divided Between three or four companies and their a a red a a a White or a a blues lines. Deducting the numerous minor charges from this amount and it is easy to see that next to nothing goes into the Treasury of the company to be divided among the stockholders. Therefore it happens that while the expenses of the Road May be Light and the amount of tonnage it carries very heavy still its receipts Are exceedingly Small and do not yield any return to the owners. At the Bottom of All this trouble lies that barnacle upon Railroad Prosperity the fast freight line. The official to whom we have alluded says a a All the roads running from the East the great trunk lines Are unfortunately harassed with too Many sub lines with which they Are compelled by contract to share their earnings. By sub lines i refer to the lines known As the a Globe 4 Blue a a Anchor a Star Union a a National dispatch a and a whole grist of others As numerous As the tentacles of Victor Hugos and again a each Railroad has three or four More a lines hanging to its skirts and these lines have separate establishments and separate managers officials clerks and runners. They Are themselves to All interests and purposes thoroughly organized institutions and Are Only secondary to the railroads on whose track they run. It costs Money to run these lines but Competition has created them and made them appear As a these parasites upon the Railroad system Are organized by outside speculators Well grounded suspicion says inside speculators the wheel within a whee who put their own cars upon the tracks handle them and do the business As Independent of the Road As if they owned it the company meanwhile getting inconsiderable compensation for the use of engines and tracks. They Are about As useful As the parasite and in their Cut Throat Competition with each other they play the part of the parasite by sucking away the substance of the Road. Their most frequent pretext for existence is that they bring business to the roads while they do not bring a Pound. The business of the country inevitably and of necessity seeks the railroads. There is just so much business to do and there Are no facilities for doing it outside of the railroads. They did it before fast freight lines Ever suggested themselves to Busy speculators or scheming Railroad officials and they will continue to do it after these barnacles Are scraped off As they must be sooner or later if stockholders Ever expect to get dividends. They May divert business from this Road to that but they do not increase the aggregate Quantity any More Han drummers for dry goods houses increase the Quantity bought and sold. They Are superfluous middie men eating up the dollars that legitimately and honestly belong to Stock or bondholders involving the Road in Cut Throat Competition and bad Faith and eventually bringing some of them under the red Flag of the sheriff. They Are pirates who have seized upon the Railroad property and hoisted their Blae White or red Flag As the Case May be and like the pirate when they have robbed the ship they scuttle it. Hence All the disorganization and unsettled character of Railroad business the vicious system of rebates confidential drawbacks and deadheading the discovery of directors that there Are no profits though the tonnage May be immense the orders slashing Oft to or 15 per cent from the wages of employees and the unjust and illogical system of switching charges which it is believed in some quarters do not go to the Railroad companies. There Are two classes by this Middle business the stockholders and bondholders on the one hand and the employees on the other a and meanwhile the general Community is not benefited in the least. There is no doubt that the Railroad companies can largely increase their profits without cutting the wages of employees at All by getting rid of these suckers and managing their own transportation which in these Days of Telegraph facilities can be done without difficulty. The sooner these fast freight lines Are wiped out whether they Are managed by outside speculators or whether they Are run by secret collusion of Railroad directors the sooner will stockholders receive dividends and employees Good Tribune. A woman s feat. The Sacramento Cal Bee relates the following a a some few Days ago As the Freeport ferry was taking a Load of passengers across the River and when about half Way Over the rope which is attached to the Bank and by Means of which the boat is towed broke. Consternation reigned among the passengers none of the men could swim the boat was Drifting Down there was nothing on Board by which it could be paddled or its movements be directed. For a few seconds silence and inactivity reigned then a Strong and healthy looking Canadian woman seeing that the men could do nothing proceeded calmly to take off her shoes and stockings and arrayed As Weig tily As horatius Cochlea was when the Bridge fell and he jumped into the yellow tiber with his harness on his Back she caught a rope in her Teeth plunged into the Muddy current and swam for Shore. There were and exultant romans on the Bank to Greet her with loud plaudits but the suddenly cheerful faces of the a lords of creation on the boat were beaming upon her with eyes of admiration. She reached the Bank tied the rope to a Strong tree and the men hauled the boat the stroke oar of the Dartmouth Crew now Waits on the table at the White Mountain hotel
