Comrades: The time for the annual
meeting of the twenty-third national
encampment of the Grand Army of the
Republic is fast approaching. When at
the last national encampment, held at
Columbus, O., it was decided to bold
the encampment for this year at Mil
waukee, every atsurauce was given that
trausiHirtation rates and accommoda
tions and preparations generally, should
equal, if not surpass and eclipse, any
that had preceded. At onr last annual
meeting of the national encampment a
rate of 1 cent per mile was granted, and
this rate was confidently expected to be
made for this year, thereby making it
possible, by thus bringing the ex
pense of transportation down, for
many of our old soldiers of limited
means to greet their old comrades

New York, August 8. The Times has
& dispatch from Port-au-Prince, Hayti,
dated July 28, which states, that Legi
time cut tho throats of eight prisoners
of war in the market place, in retalia
tion of the butchery of prisoners by
Hippolyte. Hippolvte is ndvancing
nearer and nearer each day. Time and
again the southern leader has prepared
for fight, but on each occasion the ap
peals of the people and the representa
tions of his generals have induced him
to hold o little longer. Fear bordering
on frenzy appears to have seized hold of
many of Legitime's soldiers; they re
fuse to stand, and it only remains for
the contagion to become universal to
enable Hippolyte to march unopposed
into the capital of the south.
The idea of offering quarter to sur
rendering troops has long since died
out, and capture now means something
worse thiin death.
The inhabitants of Port-au-Prince ex
pect no mercy should Hippolyte's men
: ever force an entry into the city.
Despair has seized many, while others

SiHflfsa, Neb., Aug. ll.-The pa
pers all over the country have been
publishing high sounding stories of the
discovery of a cave iu the chalk bluffs
m ar this city, in which were a quantity
of human hones, and the number of
bodies said to have beeu buried there
varies from fifteen to 40', according to
the imagination of the correspondent
who was adding to his expense account
bv writing up the alleged find. The
li'nd, in fact, is nothing more or less
than an old Indian burying ground on
the top of a big chalk rock bluff, and
the bones, what few there are of them,
are the remains of redskins who shuf
fled off the mortal Coil iu the natural
course of events, instead of the bones of
early settlers massacred by savages. A
find, however, of much more interest,
and one that will afford study for those
interested in such things, was made yes
terday ot .St. .lames. Neb., by 1.
Brewer, proprietor of the flouring mill
ut that place. He was digging for the
purpose of making repairs to his mill
dam. when he uncovered the remains of
a prehistoric mousb-r that probably j urn
roamed the prairies hundred, if not
thousands, of years ago. The huge
skeleton was found close to the base of
a soapstone bluff, and up to this turn
about thirtv-six (vet of the spinal col
umn aud ribs, together with one shoul
der blade and a part of tho fore lens,
have been brought to light. The hind
legs and the feet are yet covered. Sec
tions of the backbone measure fully six
inches across and some are iu a fair
slate of preservation, while other

stood fully fifteen feet high. The work
of excavation is going on slowly and an
effort is being made to save as much of

Washington. August 11. Consul
General Charlton Way, at St. Peters
burg, writes to the slate department
that au enormous issue of of Bussian
bonds hearing 5 poi cent interest has
been converted into 4 per cent bonds on
most favorable terms. Not only is it in
the power of the minister to convert
the entire debt of liussia into lower interest-hearing
bonds, but foreign ca
italists me eager to invest in a security
which two years ago was the football of
tho foreign Wmrsis. He adds a ara
graph relating to the forests of I'.ussia
that is significant.
"Notwithstanding the enormous area
of forests, particularly iu the northern
zone, the government has realized the
fact that, the elimination of trees pro
duces atmospheric changes and converts
what were once fertile plains into des
erts. Already it is observed that the
Caspian Sea is receding, owing to the
destruction of forests at the head of the
great rivers which flow into it, while it
is believed that from the same causes
the sea of And (now fast sinking) will
disappear in n century. fciteisore being
taken to remedy this.
