Macmahon president of France in a manifesto to the electors issued on the 18th, declared that the question of the form of government was beyond discussion he would cause the Constitution to be respected. Elections Adverse to his policy would mean War notes. The losses of the russians by disease since crossing the Danube have been 65,000 men and nearly the same number have perished in Battle. There Are no Means of estimating the turkish losses. The russian soldiers in Poland Are under orders to join the army it the seat of War. The turks captured fort St. Nicholas in a Bipka pass on the 17th, after seven hours bloody fighting but owing to Large reinforcements received by the russians were forced to abandon it. The turks by a constant fire night and Day prevent repairs on the russian works. A correspondent with the army before Plevna telegraphed on the 19th that the siege was proceeding by sap and Trench. The spirit of the russian army he says is admirable. The romanians attacked a turkish redoubt on the Nighton the 17th and were repulsed with a loss of 300 killed. The russian position at Chipka pass is considered precarious. The Porte it is telegraphed from constantinople will not accept mediation while a single Soldier remains on turkish soil nor will it consent to an armistice unless the basis of subsequent peace proposals Are at the same time defined. The commander of the relieving Force has communicated with Osman Pasha and Hie re Victualling of Plevna is expected very shortly. A Telegram was received at constantinople on the 21st that a great Battle had been fought at Biela on that Date in which the russians were completely Defeated losing 4,000 killed and 8,000 wounded. The montenegrin have captured the forts and Are masters of Duga pass and a state of siege has been proclaimed in Trebine. The easters War. Fighting at Plevna. There is hardly room for a doubt that the weeks operations about Plevna did not result As favourably for the Russo romanian army As was expected in View of the reports from russian sources. The Brief turkish bulletin about affairs at Plevna reads a a since Friday the russians have made continuous assaults but have been repulsed. We have recaptured two redoubts on the Loveatz Road which fell into the enemy a a this coincides with the detailed narratives received and with later russian bulletins. The russians have reason to fear therefore that the capture of the Rivica redoubt is of much less significance than was at first represented. If so Osman Pasha May await his reinforcements without fear of further immediate molestation. These reinforce ments Are according to a Vienna Dis Patch already on the Way from Sofia whence most of the reserves have been sent across the Balkans to chanic. The report says the care Witch a forces have been so weakened to reinforce the Plevna army that they Are no match for Mehemet a and this seems to be corroborated by the russians steadily Retro grading. On the whole whatever May be the Fate of Plevna the time is rapidly slipping away in which the russians might retrieve the fortunes of the european Campaign now As seriously compromised As the Asiatic one. How Tweed managed things. New York sept. 15. Tweed was again before the investigating committee to Day and testified that members of the Assembly were paid to vote for the charter of 1870. The Money was contributed by witness Connolly Ingersoll Garvey the Erie Railroad and Many other parties. The Money for the Assembly went through de. Barbour. Witness gave the latter $600,000 for that purpose also gave senator Winslow $500,000 to be distributed Between him and other Republican senators at $40, xxx each. Witness also approached democratic senators As Well about the Bill gave some of them Money and put the friends of others on the Roll. Tweed testified that he paid Hugh Hastin $20,000 for his services As a lobbyist for the Bill. All the Republican senators voted for the Bill and All the democrats except Genet. Connolly and witness had an understanding when they were made a Board of audit that parties doing business with the City were to give them 15 per cent. Watson and Woodward prepared the Bills and Sweeney and Hall got their percentage Hall signing the Bills. They All got to per cent at first and then 20. New York sept. 18. Tweed in his examination to Day testified that $600,000 was paid to the Board of aldermen for the confirmation of Sweeney As City Chamberlain. He paid Coman president of the Board of aldermen $50,000 $60,000 to pass a Resolution directing the comptroller to Issue Bonds for $1,500,000 for the Brooklyn Bridge of which he was trustee and stockholder. Tweed stated that he gave instructions to falsify the results of ballots and nearly All the men connected with tammany Hall from 1868 until the ring broke up had More less to do with that business. He said the reported meeting of the Board of audit at which claims amounting to millions of dollars were passed was never held but the claims were paid notwithstanding. New York sept. 21. Testifying before the investigating committee to Day Tweed stated that he was a director of the Erie railway in 1869 Gould and Fisk wanted an injunction against Vanderbilt he called on judge Barnard who granted the injunction As a matter of Friendship for him for this they made witness a stockholder in 1869 after this he lobbied for Bills for the Erie company at Albany witness attended to the Senate and Barbour to the Assembly he received Money from Fisk and Gould to influence the legislature $100,000 was spent on the legislature to carry the 1870 tax Levy he paid senators Graham Tarpenning Morris Winslow Wood and Bowen to vote for it Money was also paid for Railroad Bills that year the new York transcript association was composed of Carson Sweeney and himself they were the new York printing company and some 25 per cent. Was added to their Bills the capital was $10,-000 each and the dividends ranged from $70,000 to $100,000 each his testimony before the legislative committee was false he refused to testify before the Senate committee last Spring he now testified because he thought the committee could compel him. During the recent illness of Carey Telegraph operator at Martinsville miss., the office was managed entirely by Mary Short who is Only ten years old. She sent messages and trains and received orders for conductors from the train dispatchers office without hesitation delay. London sept. 16. A constantinople dispatch to Day says the grand vizier has informed minister Layard that Osman Pasha Defeated the russians on saturday killing and wounding 8,000, and capturing several guns. Fighting before Plevna is still going on. In connection with the foregoing a constantinople special repeats the report current there last night that the whole russian army had attacked the Plevna lines and were repulsed after desperate fighting losing Over 5,000 men. They then abandoned their position retreating upon Siskova and Tirnovan. Meantime the romanian corps on the Northeast of Plevna were completely routed with heavy loss leaving nine guns and a Large Quantity of arms and ammunition on the Field. London sept. 21. A Gorny Studen correspondent who has been with the russian army before Plevna telegraphs a a the spirit and temper of the russian soldiers Are admirable. The russians have upward of 320 guns and Are constantly firing on the turkish works which scarcely Ever reply. It is said that the ammunition of the turks is failing but there Are no Means of verifying this. They walk about their redoubts most unconcern edly. The russians Are strongly entrenched All along their front with shelter trenches Rifle pits and redoubts. Twelve to sixteen regiments of russian and romanian cavalry Are hovering about the Sofia Road to impede if they do not wholly Stop communication. The turks Are calculated by competent judges at from 60,- xxx to 80,000 Strong and about 140 guns none of which apparently Are very heavy. The capture of Plevna is an affair of time and Trench work. When the reinforcements which Are coming up arrive it ought to fall easily. The turks have refused Gen. Zotoff leave to Bury his dead which within 300 Yards of the russian position and must Breed a correspondent who was present at and reported the Battle of Plevna telegraphing from Bucharest under Date of the 17th, takes the most despairing View of the russian prospects. He says the russians were definitely thwarted and finally paralysed on the Lith when they lost 20,000 men. The russian medical staff is overwhelmed and great numbers of wounded Are literally rotting and festering being uncured for. As for the romanian army its surgical arrangements Are utterly inadequate. The surgeons make no concealment of the fact that a wounded Many a time for being looked at comes on an average two Days after he has been struck. The correspondent doubts whether the attack on Plevna can succeed even after the arrival of the guard. In spite of Strong russian sympathies he considers that the turks surpass the russians both As private soldiers and As generals. Stanley in Africa. After months of suspense during which the gravest fears were entertained for the safety of the explorer the news has come that Henry m. Stanley the special commissioner of the new York Herald and the London daily Telegraph has arrived on the West coast of Africa after a terrible journey across the continent along the line of the Lua Laba and the Congo Rivers. Stanley a letters Are dated from Emboya Congo River West coast of Africa aug. and inform us that he arrived at that Point on aug. 8 from Zanzibar with Only 115 souls and in an awful condition from the Long and terrible journey through the heart of the african continent. After completing the exploration of Lake Tanganyika and settling definitely by actual Survey the question of the outflow of the Lake by what was believed to be the River Lauga but which he has proved to be Only a Creek draining into the Lake except where the Waters of the great Inland sea attain an extraordinary Lead Stanley and his followers pushed across the country to nya Ngwe on the Lua Laba. This was the most northerly Point reached by Cameron when he attempted to solve the mystery of the Congo and its identity with the main drainage line of the Lua Laba Basin. Stanley left nya Ngwe. On the 15th of november 1876, and travelled Overland through Regga with his party. The task of penetrating the unexplored wilds that stretched before him to the Westward was calculated to impress him with a sense of danger that nothing but the Stern Call of duty and the promptings of ambitious Resolution could overcome. He was about to plunge into a Region where he would be As completely Cut off from Hope of Succour if Fortune did not favor him in his journey As if he was wandering on the surface of another planet. After an arduous March of several Days through a country filled with difficulties and being compelled to transport on the shoulders of his men every Pound of provisions and other stores necessary for the trans Continental journey and besides carrying in a similar manner the sections of the lady Alice exploring boat and the arms and ammunition of his party Stanley found himself brought to a stand by immense tracts of dense forests through which All attempts at Progress were futile. Finding that he could not Advance along the line he had first intended to follow Stanley crossed the Lua Laba and continued his journey along the left Bank of the River passing through the District known As Northeast Lukusa. On this route he endeavoured to find an outlet Westward but the Jungle was so dense and the fatigues of the March so harassing that it seemed impossible for him to succeed in passing the tremendous barriers of the Forest. add to the horrors of his position in these Central african wilds Stanley found himself opposed at every step by the hostile Cannibal natives. The Savages filled the Woods and Day and night poured flights of poisoned arrows on his party which killed and fatally wounded Many of his men. From every tree and Rock along the route the deadly missiles winged their fatal course and the heavily Laden bearers fell dead under their loads in the dark Forest. Only now and then could Stanley and his men reply to this silent fire with their rifles for the Savages kept under the densest cover and rarely exposed themselves. Stanley a March through these Cannibal regions soon became almost hopeless. There was no cessation to the fighting Day night. An attempt at camping merely concentrated the Savages and rendered their fire far More deadly. The Advance was a succession of charges in rude skirmishing order by an Advance guard whose duty it was to Clear the Road for the main body. A rear guard covered in like manner the Retreat for although advancing against one enemy the movement was a Retreat from another. All Stanley a efforts to appease the Savages were unavailing. They would listen to no overtures disregarded All signals of Friendship and mildness of intention and refused to be pacified with gifts. The patient behaviour of Stanley a men they regarded As cowardice so that no course remained open to the explorer but to fight his Way Onward and with As Little loss As possible. A to Render Stanley a position still More deplorable his escort of 140 natives whom he had engaged for the service at nya Ngwe refused to proceed further on the journey and deserted him. Thev were so overawed by the terrors of the Forest and the continuous struggle that they believed destruction was certain to overtake the whole party and prudently resolved not to be destroyed. Finding that his ranks were thinned by the desertion of the nya Ngwe the hostile natives concentrated for a grand attack on Stanley with the object of completely crushing him. It became necessary therefore to organize a desperate resistance which was happily successful so far that it repulsed the Savages for the time being and gave the explorer a Chance to reconsider his plans and make arrangements to adopt them to his trying situation. There was Only one Way to escape from the hapless position in which Stanley found himself unless he accepted the alternative of retuning to nya Ngwe and abandoning the grand work which he had undertaken. This was to make use of canoes. With the lady Alice As a last Reliance and Good canoes for the party Stanley concluded that he could Advance with better Prospect of Success than in any other Way. Although he had a decided advantage Over the Savages on the water . Stanley still found that each Days Advance was but a repetition of the struggle of the Day previous. It Quot was desperate fighting All the time while pushing Down the River with might and main. It was still the Rifle against the Bow but the Bow was covered by the dense Woods and the Rifle was exposed in the open Canoe. In the midst of these successive struggles Stanley a journey on the River was interrupted by a series of great cataracts not far apart from each other and just North and South of the Equator. pass these obstacles he had to Cut his Way through Over thirteen Miles of dense Forest and drag his eighteen canoes and exploring boat lady Alice Overland. This enormous labor entailed the most exhausting efforts and they had frequently to abandon the a and ropes for their rifles to defend themselves against the continuous assaults of the hostile natives. After passing the cataracts Stanley and his party had a Long breathing pause from the toil of dragging their boats through the Forest they were also comparatively secure from attack and took measures to recruit their exhausted strength before again encountering the dangers of the journey Westward. Although fighting his Way continuously Stanley did not neglect the objects of his journey and found an Opportunity to note All the interesting changes and physical characteristics of the route. At two degrees North latitude he found that the course of the great Lua Laba swerved from its almost northerly direction to the northwestward to the Westward and then to the southwestward developing into a Broad Stream varying in Width from two to ten Miles and choked with islands. In order to avoid the struggles with the tribes of desperate cannibals that inhabited the Mainland on each Side of the River Stanley a Canoe Fleet led by the lady Alice paddled along Between the islands taking advantage of the cover they afforded As a Protection from attack. In this Way Many Miles Down the Stream were made by the party unmolested by the natives. But this safety from attack was purchased by much suffering. Cut off from supplies in the Middle of the great River starvation threatened to destroy the expedition. The most extreme hunger was endured by the party which passed three entire Days absolutely without any food. This terrible state of things could not be any longer endured so Stanley resolved to meet his Fate on the main land rather than by hunger on the River. He therefore turned his course to the left Bank of the Lua Laba and with the singular Good Fortune that has generally attended him reached the Village of a tribe acquainted with Trade. These people had four muskets which they obtained from the West coast. They represent in a degree the Advance guard of civilization toward the Interior of the continent. They called the great River Skuta a Congo. With these Friendly natives Stanley and his party made a a blood brotherhood a and purchased from them an abundance of provisions which were sorely needed by the famished exploring party. After a Brief rest Stanley endeavoured to continue his course along the left Bank of the River but three Days after his departure from the Village of the Friendly natives he came to the country of a powerful tribe whose warriors were armed with muskets. Here for the first time since leaving nya Ngwe Stanley had to contend with an enemy on an almost equal footing As to arms. He therefore prepared his party for the struggle the Issue of which was decidedly doubtful. No sooner did these natives discover the approach of Stanley a expedition than they manned fifty four Large canoes and put Oft from the River Bank to attack it. It was not until after three of his men were killed that Stanley desisted in his efforts to make the natives understand that he and his party were friends. He cried out to them to that effect he offered them clothes and peace gifts but the Savages refused to be conciliated and the fight proceeded with unabated fury. For twelve Miles Down the River the struggle went on and it proved to be the greatest and most desperate fight on this terrible River. It was maintained by Stanley a followers with great courage and was the last save one of thirty two Battles fought since the expedition had left nya Ngwe. The Lua Laba which River changes its name scores of times now As it approached the Atlantic Ocean became a known As the Quango and the Soure. As the River runs through the great Basin which lies Between 26 Deg. And 17 Dew. East Longitude it has an uninterrupted course of Over 700 Miles with magnificent affluent especially on the Southern Side. Thence Clearing the Broad belts of mountains Between the great Basin of the Atlantic Ocean the River descends by about thirty Falls and furious rapids to the great River Between the Falls of Zellalah and the Atlantic. Stanley a losses during the Long and terrible journey across the continent from nya Ngwe have been very severe. The continuous fighting in the forests and on the River reduced the strength of the expedition daily until it became a question whether any of its members would reach the coast. Stanley states in his dispatch a a my grief is still new Over the loss of my last White assistant the Brave and pious Young englishman Francis Pocock who was swept Over the Falls of the Cassasa on the 3d of last he adds a my faithful companion Kalulu is also among the on the same Day that Pocock was lost Stanley and seven men were almost drawn into the whirlpools of the Moa Falls and six weeks later himself and the entire Crew of the lady Alice were swept Over the Falls of Belo whence Only by a Miracle they escaped.

By a change of base shelter was obtained and retaliatory firing was commenced with equal destruction of Indian life. The indians meantime had captured the howitzer which was coming on under escort and on a mules Back the two privates who were with it fleeing in contingently and leaving the officers to an unequal fight. During the Day various strategies were employed but it was eleven of clock at night before the indians withdrew. On the Lith the dead were buried. Gen.
