Washington by a a i see by a Cable Telegram that Osman Pasha of the turkish army is believed to be Bazaine late a marshal of the French army. This is a mistake for i know very Well who Osman Pasha is As i have corresponded with him for several years have received letters from him since he has been Given the command of a division in the turkish army. Osman Pasha is an american a native of Hawkins county Tenn. His name is ii. Clay Crawford. He was colonel of a regiment of artillery during the War Between the states. He afterwards entered the service of the mexican government and was made a general of the division. He created a considerable stir by the capture of Bagdad Mexico passing his forces Over the Rio Grande from the Texas Shore. He finally quarrelled with Juarez the mexican president and returned to the United states with a Large Fortune. He resided for several years at a Beautiful country seat on the Delaware in new Philadelphia. His restless disposition caused him to seek excitement and he entered the service of the Khedive of Egypt and was soon after transferred to the service of the Sultan and commanded the turkish army at the Memphis Avalanche says Crawford a father was a school teacher in Rogersville Tenn., where Roberts boyhood was passed. Andrew Johnson about 1849, gave Young Crawford an appointment to West Point. There he resisted an arrest for a dereliction of duty and was expelled. A few years later he was sentenced by a Federal court of Virginia for robbing the mail and in a few weeks escaped from confinement. In 1863 he burst on Rogersville As a dashing colonel and chief of artillery on some Federal general a staff and carried things with a High hand among the old citizens of Hawkins county. After the War he figured in a wild raid of plundering Over the Rio Grande. The French ministry of War announces that a number of soldiers will this year be placed at the disposal of agriculturists for the purpose of the Harvest.

A special dated por Din aug. 31, contains the following Osman Pasha a attack on the russian positions at Pelisa and Vicinity was one of the hardest fought Battles of the War. The turks Early in the fight captured a russian redoubt one mile in front of Pelisa. In the course of one hour this redoubt was taken by the turks retaken by the russians and again taken by the turks. The russian left Wing were driven Back on Pelisa in front of which trenches had been dug and were lined with troops. The turks advanced As though determined to drive our left out of Pelisa and turn it. The turks began to descend the Hill in that direction not with a Rush but leisurely and without firing not in masses or lines but scattered and diffused. They came Down about half Way in this Mariner the russian artillery tearing up the groups All the time in a most Savage manner. The russian infantry fire which had for the last five minutes been very heavy about Segaline now began to Roll along the Hill Crest in our direction and the turks who were just coming into Range began to drop rapidly. The turkish Advance now veered to the left and went at the russian trenches on the Crest of the Hills Between Pelisa and Segaline with a shout opening fire at the same time. The turks descended into a Little hollow and were lost to sight for a time while the russian trenches flamed and smoked and a storm of bails was poured into the Vicinity of the turks. This must have lasted fifteen or Twenty minutes during which time a fearful loss of life must have occurred. Then we saw the turks begin to withdraw carrying off their wounded. The turks had no sooner withdrawn from the russian front than they formed and advanced again. Many dead bodies of the turks were found within ten feet of the russian trenches. The Little slope on the Crest of which the trenches were situated was literally covered with dead. I counted seven on a place of not More than ten feet Square. Their Battle Here was terrible but the turks were again repulsed. It will hardly be believed that they went at it again and yet they did so. It seemed madness because we could see that the russian fire never slacked for an instant and that the russian line never wavered while the reserves were waiting behind ready to fall in at the least sign of wavering. This scene of carnage was again repeated but Only lasted a moment. The turks completely broken withdrew sullenly firing and carrying off their wounded and Many of their dead. They fell Back on the redoubt which they had first taken apparently with the intention of holding it but they were not allowed to remain Long there. Another # attack on the russian Center had been equally As unsuccessful As that on the russian trenches on the left. The russians pursued the retreating turks with a murderous fire. Then six companies went at x a Side of the redoubt. The russians Rush up in open order keeping a steady Stream of reinforcements following the Advance. A perfect deluge of shells is poured upon the redoubt from our batteries As the men Rush up the slope while the turkish infantry fire is incessant and if it were Well directed every russian would have been shot Down. As it is Many fell. Our artillery ceases firing As our men leap into the ditches and clamber up the parapet while another column rushes along the Loveatz face of the redoubt to Clear the Advance trenches. The turks in the trenches Fly to the Westward firing As they go and falling under the russian fire. In the redoubt the Garrison Rush to the Gorge in the Western face of the work. There is a traverse covering this Gorge and the turks Are jammed Between the traverse and the Western parapet. In a few seconds the firing ceases the Day is ours and the turks Are in full Retreat to the Westward pursued by the cossacks. Immediately after the redoubt was taken the correspondent entered it. The Road and adjacent Plain were thickly dotted with dead and wounded. Up the slope where the russians had charged the redoubt i was surprised to find so few dead the turkish fire having principally gone too High. On the Side of the redoubt were corpses of turks and russians thickly strewing the ground but at the Western end where the turks had been jammed in in their efforts to escape a space of forty feet by Twenty was covered with turkish dead and wounded to the depth of five feet. The living and dead were lying on each other in a dense mass. Around this moslem pile was a fringe of dead russians showing that there had been a fearful struggle on this fatal space. Russian soldiers were standing upon this mass of humanity. I watched them working manfully to separate the living from the dead. In half an hour they had made scarcely any impression upon that fearful pile. The Road was strewn with turks with Here and there a russian. Some turks had been shot first and then repeatedly Bayon eted. The correspondent estimates the russian loss at 1,000. The masses were not exposed As at Plevna. Skill was substituted for brute Force. Them with bayonets and swept them out Joash he fled at once for Hig life giving at4u� of the redoubt like a whirlwind four of clock the turks were in Retreat everywhere and the russians occupied the whole of their first positions besides pursuing the turks a Short distance with cavalry. The russians were about 20,-000 Strong. Their loss is estimated at 500 and the turkish loss at 2,000 killed and wounded. The Battle of Loveatz. London sept. 7. A correspondent who was with the russian army at the Battle of Loveatz thus describes the attack on the last turkish redoubt which he witnessed from the top of mount Rous. He says mount Rous was within easy Cannon shot of the position attacked. The attacking Force was compelled to Cross a Plain half a mile wide before reaching the base of the Hill on which the redoubt was constructed under the musketry fire of turkish infantry securely ensconced behind their parapets. Along the Road and on the left hand of the Osma were several Low ridges of Earth High enough to cover a Man in a creeping posture and these places of Refuge were resting places in the deadly race for the Bluff. A cemetery through which the russians also had to pass had a number of tall flagstones standing upright and these were taken advantage of by the advancing soldiers. The attacking Force was commanded by Gen. Raz Nien Darett. At 2 30 of clock the order to attack was Given and the men rushed across the Valley amid a perfect Hail storm of bullets. In a few minutes the ground was dotted with dead and wounded russians and the survivors were resting under Little ridges of the Road by the Osma. The men advanced in open order at a Rush and the turks kept up a steady Stream of fire. There was not the slightest break in the rain of bullets and yet it was wonderful to see How Small a portion of them took effect. Sometimes a single Soldier would run across the White space Between the River and Bluff. I could see where every Bullet hit around him by the dust which it threw up and yet he generally got across unhurt. There were minutes when no russian was under fire and yet the turks never stopped. It appears they were lying Down in the trenches firing Over the parapets without looking. The russians declare they never saw even a head above the Bank. By three of clock a considerable Force had collected under the Bluff and commenced working round to the Angle of the redoubt looking up the Plevna Road while another party to distract attention from the first crept up the face of the Bluff and opened a scattering fire on the face of the redoubt toward Loveatz. Away to the northward of Plevna Road the russian Force now makes its appearance with a Battery of artillery to Cut off the turkish Retreat toward Plevna. Another attaching column is now seen advancing up the River Osma from our extreme right. They Are scattered in open order and steal along unobserved by the turks to reinforce the party under the Northern end of the Bluff. All this time the turks keep up an incessant Rifle fire but the guns on the Hills at the Back of the redoubt Only fire occasionally As our troops cannot be seen from that position. The russian artillery Thunder away very rapidly and two batteries Are now advanced Down the Road nearly to the Edge of the City. The russians gathered under the Bluff now make a Rush Forward and secure Possession of some turkish trenches in front of the Eastern face of the redoubt within a Hundred Yards of the ditch. It is now four of clock in the afternoon and the decisive moment approaches. The men along the Loveatz front of the work open fire and draw the bulk of the turkish fire in their direction when suddenly about fifty russians make a Rush upon the Eastern face of the redoubt and approach within fifty Yards of the ditch. They were compelled to retire by a tremendous turkish fire. After Twenty minutes of desultory fire the real attack is made up the slope facing the Eastern flames and Beath. New York sept. 4. Afire originating in j. P. Hales piano factory on thirty fifth Street this morning destroyed about fifty buildings Between thirty fourth and thirty seventh streets and tenth and eleventh avenues including the piano factory charcoal Yard barrel factory several tenement houses Small stores residences and liquor stores. The piano factory was a Large Brick building eight stories in height running through the Block. The fire originated through Nicholas Monck a varnish rubber who was heating some varnish Over a stove. While his Back was turned it1 got ablaze and the flames spread like a the alarm As he ran but the windows being open the flames swept through the building finding fresh fuel at every step. It is supposed that about 200 men were employed in the building at the time. It cannot yet be ascertained How Many have been burned in the building. The Hatchway in one Corner were open and the flames rusted to the upper stories As if through a flue. Several firemen say from the windows of the upper Story of the factory men were calling for ladders for help a for gods Sake a but that the ladders were not Long enough to reach them and even if they were they could not be placed in position owing to the intense heat.
