From St. Petersburg of a recent

From tho Loudon correspondent
of the Chicago Journal wc learn

for the people and a leaning to
wards a republican form of gov
ernment. Charles Vial, indicted for the
willful murder of W. B. Armstrong,
had his trial at Lincolu last week.
The means used to take tho life of
the murdered was mixing poison
with liquor which he drank and it
killed him. The evidence being
mostly circumstantial his coun-
material link'in the chain of circum
stances which had happened in this
case, should work the acquittal of
Vial. Tho case was 6ent to the
jury and iu due time they returned
a,verdict of "not guilty."

The Standard publishes a sensa
tional dispatch from Vienua to the
effect that Russia's military organi
zations aro so vast that nobody can
doubt she is bent upon further con
quest. The only question appears
to be whether she will wait till
spring or commence tho war before
that time. A camp of 60,000 men is
forming at Kischensoff to replace
the troops who crossed the Balkans
A dispatch from Pera says Hie
British Vice-Consul at Rourgas has
been seriously assaulted by Russian
officers, and the Russians have re

The Chicago Times states that
two bad signs are reported from
England the stoppage or reduction
to short timo of 60 per cent, of the
looms and spindles in Lancashire
aud Cheshire, and the strike of the
agricultural laborers of Kent and
Sussex. The depression in the
cotton industry is growing worse
and worse, while the condition of
English agriculture, as shown by
tho rcceutly-published returns of
the British board of trade, is by no
means favorable. Largo areas of
arable land have lately been given
over to pasturgc. Tho farm laborers
of England are not fed upon the
farms, as in this country, but buy
their food from day to day with
their miserablo weekly wages, aud
a strike at this season of the year
must necessarily leave their fami
lies in a needy condition for the
Much feeling exists iu the British
Ministry on account of the Russian
agents in this country, who arc pur
chasing ships and material of war,
and have in an official way mani
fested this feeling. Similar com
plaint was made during the trouble
between Russia aud Turkey, but the
position which our government as
sumed then, and maiutaius"uow, is
that no overt act having been com
mitted against treaty stipulations,
there was no occasion for interfer
ence. It was stated Inst week at
Washington that the English gov
ernment seems to think that it is the
duty of our government to discrim
inate in her interest against Russia.
England should remember the days
of rebellion when the rebels were in
actual conflict with the Government
how they sympathized and aided tho
enemy, and bo assured that Mr.
Evarts will strictly comply with tho
obligations of this Government, and
will see ihat they aro observed in
accordance with existing treaties.
