Any Aid from cities or towns that May be sent to r. S. Gordon mayor or judge t. Shannon of the banking House of Shannon amp Beal chairman of the Relief committee will be wisely and faithfully appropriated toward those who arc worthy and needy. On Ute Danube and in Aula. London june 4 on the Danube the russians have at last occupied the chief positions and their lines extend from Galatz to Kala fat. But the River bars their Way and until the Stream returns to its Normal summer level it will be perilous if not physically impossible to take the army across. It is now hardly possible that the russians can execute this great Mili tary operation for the next three weeks they May come to close quarters with the turkish armies about the beginning of july so that the Campaign will Proba Bly be prosecuted under the greatest heats of the summer. The Region of the lower Danube is terribly unhealthy for strangers so it May be presumed that the russians will Endeavor to traverse with All celerity the More unhealthy districts those troops will fare worst which have to sit Down before fortresses or guard Strong places in the Chain of communications. The character and duration of the struggle in Bulgaria is the subject of much speculation particularly in Germany and Austria where every officer seems to have made his own particular study of the Campaign. The general Tenor of these criticisms is Adverse to the turks not from any doubt that they will make a Good fight and even inflict serious repulses on their enemy but from repossession that superiority in numbers efficiency of organization and strategical ability Aroon the Side of the russians. There Are 24,000 russians in position on the Danube without counting the romanians or reserves that Are. Being brought Forward that amount to 60,-000 men. There Are 80, men East of Brail and 20,000 with considerable reserves at Bot Grad which is the Point of support for this part of the line. The strength and position of the works at Reni and Brail indicate that they Are defensive and not offensive the precautions taken being directed against an attack by the turkish Fleet and to prevent the passage of the River by the turks. At Brail there Are three batteries one West of the town sweeping the Danube with four twelve Pounders and two guns of larger Caliper off to the Point formed by the Matchin Channel and two East of the town raking the Matchin Channel one of which is armed with four guns of position and four howitzers and the other with eight pieces of still larger Caliper and two mortars from which projectiles Are said to have reached Matchin from Brail up to the lines of Bucharest and olt Onitza and i Urgero there Are no troops except the number requisite to guard against Surprise but Between Bucharest and i Urgero the concentration is on a Large scale. The forces arc in three Camps each containing 30,000 men to which must to added another 10,000 at i Urgero. There Are now 10,-000 men concentrated on the Bucharest and i Urgero line along the railway who May be directed either against the line of Rustchak and Turt Ukai or Rustchak and Siskova. On the spot it is believed the latter will be chosen and that the demonstration at Olte Nitza is merely a feint. The second concentration is on both sides of the River Aluta. East of the River Are 60, he men in two Camps both on the High Road to turn Mugurelis. West of Aluta Are four Camps represent ing about 80,000 men. This May be regarded As the Center of the line. Farther West on the line of Kalafat and turn Syverin the last accounts stated the number of russians to be Over 40,000. The turkish army on the Asiatic Side appears to have been deplorable neglected. The troops Are worse disciplined worse equipped and provided than those on the Danube but the nature of the warfare Zinasia twosome degree makes the deficiencies in the armies less vital the Campaign will be one in which strategy will be of less and hard fighting of More importance. Even the irregular troops May be Able to do service in some positions which it is in the Power of Mukhtar Pasha to defend. The russian right Wing has advanced from Arahan via Brut to Pennek fifteen Miles North of Bardez. Of the Center we have no reliable information but it has been reported that they have taken both Dili Musmand get Chevan. According to another account these places arc being attacked by detachments while the main Force is following the Northern Road Over the Sag Houli Range. At All events the right and Center Are Well Down toward the positions from which an attack could be made on Mukhtar Pasha but the left Wing has not yet advanced far enough to participate in the combined movement. This delay is to a great extent in consequence of the difficulties of the country through which the ser cd from Trebine gives a gloomy account of the condition of the army. Two thousand four Hundred men have died at Trebine since the Campaign began the City being the Hospital depot of the army now concentrated at a Otschko which consists of thirty six battalions of 300 to 400 men each. Of these at least half Are suffering chiefly from scurvy. There is also much dysentery. Physicians and surgeons Are subject to fanatical outbreaks of Mussulman continually menaced and insulted and never paid three thousand men arc sick at Mostar and deserters from Podgor itza report the same condition of affairs prevailing there. The troops a underfed having nothing beyond the Barest Means of sustaining life. They Are compelled to work continuously on the earthworks. The health of the montenegrin forces is turkish account of affair in Anta minor. London june 7. The following is a turkish account of the position of affairs in Asia minor on the morning of the 6th Mukhtar Pasha a Headquarters with nine battalions was at Kop Rekos. The turkish right consisting of Twenty battalions was at Delia a. The turkish left Wing sixteen battalions was at Gourdji and baggage about six hours March from Erze Roum. The same account Only assigns four batteries of artillery to these fort five battalions which seems incredible though it has been repeatedly stated from various sources that the turks in Asia minor were almost destitute of artillery. This report places the main body of the russian right Wing at Olti with the advanced guard at Nari Man and the russian Center at a Oghali Dagh. The russian left has suspended its Forward movement. A russian detached column is approaching Van and has reached the Bridge of Bend Mahon Twenty Miles from Van. Left Wing is marching. All supplies have to be drawn from Erivan from which place the Only easy Road leads through persian territory the other routes being Mountain passes. If the Battle which is to decide the Fate of Erze Roum is not fought until the Ervian the Ellenton conspiracy trial. Charleston s. C., june 3. Chief Justice Waite summoned the jury in the Ellenton cases into court last night and found that they could Only agree upon a verdict in the Case of one of the eleven persons charged with conspiracy. This was a. W. Atkinson who was acquitted. The judge then discharged the jury and the ten remaining prisoners were released upon giving Bonds for their appearance at the next term of the court. The counsel think it unlikely that these cases will Ever again be tried. The accused Are eleven White men of Aiken county who arc charged under the enforcement act with a conspiracy to interfere with the political rights of David Bush coloured. Home 250 or 300 Whites from the same county have been arrested and Hel it in bail on similar charges but Only these eleven have been brought to trial As a test. The jury stood six to six on the question of general acquittal the six Whites being for and the six Blacks against. The Black jury men however were willing to agree upon a verdict convicting two of the accused and acquitting All the rest but to this the six Whites would not consent. A Lawn dresses and hats covered with the same Light material Are now very fashionable. It goes without saying that the most cheerful Maidens Are All for Lawn. Column has forced the turkish position at Koprak Kaleh and is within supporting distance of the other columns Progress is Likely to be As heretofore very slow. It is not impossible however that the right and Center with the Aid of a Force from Batum operating on the Choruk River May attack Mukhtar Pasha from the direction of Olti and so Haniu provided Mukhtar Waits to be attacked. The latest news of him via Constantino a be represents that he was falling Back from the Bardez and Erze Roum positions. It is to be remarked however that news from constantinople whether favourable or unfavourable to the turks is peculiarly untrustworthy. Thus we had last week announcements that the russians had occupied Van and Olti both of which were false and the probable result of panic just As the reiterated Story of the recapture of Arahan was the probable result of blundering design on the part of the government to appease the populace of constantinople. On the other hand War news made Public by the russian government is of no importance whatever or several Days behind time. Some Turki a distance. A correspondent of the Levant Herald writes allow me to Call a moments attention to the following distances not in hours but As the Crow Flics the agreement in them being somewhat curious. I have measured the distances on the military map annexed to Gen macintosh a celebrated work from Trebizond to Battam. From Trebizond to Erze Roum. From Erze Roum to Kars. From Kars to Batum. The a a crowds flight from constantinople to Trebizond is 500 Miles. Trebizond and Batum on the Northern line and Erze Roum and Kars on the Southern form a tolerable quadrilateral within which it is possible the russians May find themselves strategically cooped up by the of Manlis and checkmate. Tile Turk and montenegrin. London june 8. An Strok correspondent who derives information from official montenegrin sources telegraphs the following account of recent operations under Date of the 8th the turks moved in two columns one going to the Relief of Goransky and the main Force under Suleiman Pasha to Krstan. The latter attacked the entrenchments of Gen. Vukovitz with great gallantry but were repulsed being twice driven Back on their reserves. The third attack was also repulsed the turks taking up position opposite Krstan where they remained. Vukovitz fell Back on his second line at Duga where he has not been molested. It appears from this report that Vukovitz is so placed As to be obliged to abandon his positions. The turkish loss in dead in this engagement is about 3,000. Six Hundred dead were counted in front of the entrenchments of one montenegrin battalion. The other turkish column going to Goransky was met by Gen. Saniea and driven Back to Muralo Vitza where it was encamped at latest information. As the defeat of this column would leave the rear of Suleiman Pasha a army exposed it is probable he will attack Gen. Macica before moving.
