The news of the troubles in Elpaso county tex., and the Telegram of gov. Hubbard to the president calling for assistance from the u. S. Troops to repel tin invasion of texan territory cause some excitement hero but government advices do not warrant tin belief that other than local troubles have presented themselves.

The government does not consider that the troubles Are in any degree International. The dispatches were however referred to the Secretary of War who after consultation with Gen.

The thirty fifth division of the twelfth russian army corps appeared on the scene and attacking the turks in the flank compelled them with the co operation of the rest of the russian forces to retire upon Krasna their Retreat to Jovan i Fulik being Cut off. The grand Duke Vladimir narrowly escaped a Sulieman Pasha describing the same affair claims that he carried some of the entrenchments of Ketchka but was unable to hold them owing to the fire from the Heights and the arrival of russian reinforcements. He consequently withdrew to his original position after a seven hours Battle. Three thousand russians were killed. A Bucharest special says a Bullet grazed the Czar wit clip a head in this engagement. Mated by the spirit of the contest. The military Honor of both sides must be abundantly satisfied. Quot what object can there be in prolonging a contest ruinous to both countries the moment has arrived for the belligerent Powers to accept peace without affecting their dignity. Europe might now usefully interpose her Good offices since the Porte is now ready to come to terms. The country is not at the end of its resources and is still prepared to fight in its own defense. It is ready moreover to sacrifice All for the in Mendence and integrity of the fatherland but the Porte is desirous to Stop further effusion of blood and therefore appeals to the feelings of Justice which must animate the great Powers hoping they will receive these overtures favourably.

Jondon dec. 15. The circular note dispatched by the Porte to the signers of the treaty of 1871 commences with the statement that the origin of the present important events is perfectly Well known. The Imperial government is conscious of having done nothing to provoke the War. It has done everything to prevent it and has vainly sought to discover russians motives for her aggressive Campaign. The Porte has shown a desire for improvement by reorganizing her judicial system and devising reforms without distinction of race or religion according to her Constitution which has everywhere been Well received. Partial Reform is of no Avail. Adaption of improvements in part of the Empire Only would be a Premium to other communities to revolt. Any doubts As to the execution of these reforms should disappear before the solemn declarations the Porte now makes. The state of War simply retards such reforms and is disastrous to the country generally destroying agricultural interests killing Industry Anc ruining financial reorganizations. Independently of these arrangements for Reform what reason can there he for continuing the War Russia has declared that she is not Ani Ohio news items. Or. Jared p.

Two shots were fired into the Short line train from Cincinnati for Columbus when near Lilley Chapel on the night of the 10th, by some unknown persons which came very near killing persons in both instances. The first shot passed Over the shoulders of the Engineer through the cab and the second passed through the window on one Side of a car and through the lattice and window of the other narrowly missing a gentleman who was lying Down on the seat. On the Lith the annual report of the state institution for the Blind was filed with tin governor. The stewards account shows the amount expended for the fiscal year to be $28, for Ordinary repairs $1,553 for Fence walks Etc., $9,000. The superintendents report shows the whole number of students admitted to be 171 average attendance 148, new pupils 38. Average age of pupils boys 17 girls 16. Many counties Are not represented in the institution a fact due to the ignorance or indifference of parents of Blind children to its advantages. The superintendent appeals to the Public to spread the information of the value of the institution that the sightless May be sent therefor instruction. The trustees report that the year has been one of Prosperity and quiet advancement in study. Only one death has occurred among the pupils. The Cost of sustaining the inmates is set Forth in detail showing that the whole number of officers teachers anti pupils 220 in All besides Many transient visitors were supported at a Cost of Only $11,894, or less than $1.10 per person per week and that an examination of purchases made will show that for the sum of $56.54 per capita per year a Bill of fare is provided equal to that of any private family.

A Man named St Verger residing near Eaton was fatally injured on the Lith while out Hunting by the accidental discharge of his shot gun the contents of which entered his right Side. The annual report of . Karr gives the following facts regarding the military organization in Ohio thirty nine companies of infantry one troop of cavalry and one four gun Battery have been accepted during the year. The present Force consists of 145 companies of infantry three troops of cavalry five four gun batteries and four two gun batteries. I la infantry is organized into seventeen regiments and battalions except nine unattached companies. The organization of cavalry has been abandoned for the present owing to tin fact that it is More expensive and tin state has no arms suitable for cavalry. Four gun batteries Are recommended in place of two gun the latter being too Small. Several of the present batteries Are regarded As inefficient and measures will be taken to disband them. The companies called out during the strike turned out for duty fully 25 percent stronger than their average attendance at drills or parades. The adjutant general does not favor paying a per diem for time spent at Parade drills or encampments.

Tiberius became sole emperor in August in the year of Rome 767. Add the fourteen years of Tiberius reign and it appears that Christ was about thirty years of age in the year of Rome 781. But there is some reason to think that Augustus made Tiberius partner in the government two years before that is in 765 plus fourteen. In this ease Tiberius fifteenth year would be 779 of the year of Rome. Now if our Savior was about thirty years old in the year of Rome 781, he was born about the year of Rome 751. If in the year of Rome 779, then lie was born about the year of Rome 749.__ How it feels to be shot. Capt Henry Romyn of the fifth infantry is now in Detroit recovering from the wounds which he received in the last Battle with Josephus warriors.
