I have had ar interesting interview with M. Gam- betta on current affairs. The Speaker of the Chamber thinks the Eastern question only opened. In hia opinion tne Beclia Congress only served to keep open the sores it professed to heal. Where there was a wound be fore it met there ia now a bad ulcer. M. Giimbetta apprehends military carnage and massacre in the Balkanfi and Southern Bulgaria , and he does not dare think where the storm wave originated by Russians , Turks and Bulgarians will end. Peace he deems essential to the prosperity of the French Republic , and as long as he dircjts the Chamber of Deputies she will never draw the sword from the scabbard but to defend herself. In this order of ideas he judges it happy for France that Bis marck" has his hands full of German thorns , and is losing the confidence of the coutt , the parliament and the na tion. I asked if the internal difficul ties which perplex and irritate the chancellor may not drive him to ar. War is a favorite divertivs of rnonar- chial governments from the ills that weigh upon their peoples. It is in hu man nature to prefer being swept aw.iy by a cannon ball to being knock ed down by a rolling pin. Gambetta thought the axiom of Bailey Junior applicable to Celts and Gauls , but not to Get mans , who are pacific as they are disputatious. They entered the war of 1870 with enthusiasm , because Louis Napoleon irritated the national fibre ; but they were disgusted with it , and very glad after a short and pre eminently victorious campaign to duff their uniforms. I again observed that Prussia was not German. It was peopled pled bj' races who would elect always . for the cannon ball in preference to the rolling pin. The Prussians were an amalgam of Wend Slavs , French Protestants , and Borussii. A very hard metal was formed by the fusion , and it was better adapted for swords and Krupp guns than for plow shares , G.nnhctta , asserted. At the saino timu he pointed out that if un supported by the avalanche of Saxon , Bavarian , Wurternberger and Hano verian troops which were precipitated on France , the warlike State of Bran denburg must have issued with a bro ken head from the nght. For Eng A land Gambetta saw greater troubles ahead than those with which she is strangling , and which ho thought it unfair to cast at Beaconsfield's door. Some of her present ills were due to universal causes ; others to the over * development of manufacturing cities , which degraded population and placed National wealth on an unsteady basis. Agricultural Italy must ever , in the long run , have the advantage over trafficking Caithage. In one way Free Trade was the source of evil to Eng land that Protection would bo to tin United States and the Brit ish Colonies. It brought too much blood into grimy citiej , where the smoke of the'mill shuts out the light of Heaven from the opera tive. Without Heaven's light , con tinued in his emphatic mnnor Gambat- ta , the workman is a brute.To find a glimpse of the idea toward which every human being instinctively aspires , he squanders his wages in gin. Oh , Jt-'s ! without sunlight and the bl'io sky , there is no invention , no EkiH , no sociability to bo found among the laboring poor. The tidy , thrifty , artistic Fleming becomes at Mons and Lille a besotted animal. Manufac tures carried to a great extent killed the Moors in Spain. He should be s irry that they killed England , for he hen coed re.utons for loving her. In the United States the Labor party is another outcome of big cities and over stimulated manufactures. "All I want , " said the ex-Director , "public instruction to do iu France , is to en able the peasant to oppreciato the felitcio * of an agricultural life , and to loud him the aid of science in cultivating his field. Gambott.-i spoke with kindness of Grevy , but lamented his contracted ideas of European affairs. England's foreign perplexities , he said , were traceable to the blind policy of Glad stone and his Manchester colleagues. They kept back Italy and Austria from helping France. THE QCEEJf OF ENGLAND stays to-night at the British Embassy , in the apartments on the first floor. 1 ler chamber is that usually occupied by Lurd Lyons. It was fitted up by tha Prince Borgheso for his pretty vife Pauline Bonaparte , as Her Maj esty now finds it. The furniture is magnificent , but the stuffs covering it aro'out of repair. A charming view of the Embassy garden , which is planted with ancient trees and covering with soft green turf , is commanded from the rooms in which Her Majesty is in- stfvlled. Beyond the trees the gayest part of the Champs Elysees can be eeen. The Queen.in the early years of her reign , was bigoted in the opinion that "it takes three ger era- tic 'is to make a gentlemen. " She cnrnciated this axiom after her first interview with Sir Robert Peel , who was not at ease in the Royal presence. It must go hard with her to receive president Grevy as an equal , and I do not suppose she would have been induced to meet him in the character of a brother had she not been moved bv a political necessity. She is very anxious to have a new treaty of com- jnerce negotiated by the Government and accepted by the French Cham- bcrs. Her Majesty , I have no doubt , will be favorably impressed with the honest simplicity of M. Grevy's man ners. She has great insight as to character , and when a prejudice is o\vcimois apt to regret deeply that she ever entertained it _ Madame Grevy having no official rank will not call on Her Majestj She ( Madame Grevy ) is in the positio : of an Archbishop's wife in England The Queen , contrary to what th French journals state , will pay no re turn visit. Fatigue and deep mourn ing will be pleaded m excuse. FOREIGN. Advice to Secretary Sherman. BpecUl Ditpatch to THE BII. LOMDON , April 21.

FREMONT TBAGBD1ES. A Pistol Ball Robs Con sumption of Another "Victim , Particulars of the Suicide of Mr. Laughlin. His Wife Vainly Attempts to Prevent the Fatal Deed. Investigation of the St. Louis Case. LOUOHLIK. Special to the Herald. FREMONT , Neb. , April 21. Mr. Henry Loughlin , who recently came to Fremont from Omaha and identi fied with the interests of this town , committed suicide about nine o'clock to-night by shooting himself througn the forehead. He was in the last stages of consumption , and had given up all hopes of getting well. A few weeks since he went to Colorado in the vain hope of checking the fatal disease , but was advised to return at the end of a few days by his physi cian , as his case was beyond remedy. He has been dejected and gloomy ever since his return , but no one drenned that he would hurry himself iuto the urave by his own hand till the news of liis tragic death was heralded through the city. Mrs. Laughlin had just put the chil dren to bed when she heard a clicking uoise in her husband's room and went thither to ascertain the cause of the noise. She found him. with a revolver ver in his hand , but before she could speak he crdered her out of the room , and threatened to shoot if she did not obey. She burst into teanand in the most piteous tones plead with him not to commit the terrible act , saying , "Oh ! Henryyou would not shoot me , pou love me so well , you know , and j-our children , you think so much of them. But her prayers and tears trero vain. He forced her to leave iim and the stepped into an adjoining room , when a rnomeni later , she heard ; he terrible report which sounded the loath knell of he hopes and rent her icart iii twain. In frantic despair ihe rushed into the chamber of ieath and found her husband dead : n the bed with the warm blood pushing from a frightful wound in the forehead. Her wild agonizing shrieks brought the neighbors to her lid , and swift as lightning the terri ble news swept through the city. Offi- : er Gregg and Coroner Van Buren lurried to the scene of the tragedy ind will remain in charge of the coroner's to- jorpse till the inquest uorrow. Mrs. Laughlin is almost ft naniac , but kind hearts are caring for ler. ler.The corpse is a ghastly eight , and , he pillow on which rests the shatter- id head , is crimsoned with blood and > espattered with brains. The deceas- sd leaves his family in good circum- itances. He was highly respected and isteemed. ST. LOUIS. FKEMOCT , April 21. Drs. L. J. Abbott , L. B. Smith and J. Bruner nade a post mortem examination of ; he brain of Dr. St. Louis to-day , to iscertain the course of the buliet. It antered the skull at the point where ; he temporal ridge crosses the coronal suture , and passed directly through the skull on the opposite side , then ; urned and lodzed in the fissure in the left hemisphere , according : o medical phraseology. One large ipicula of the bone and two smaller pieces were driven two inches nto the brain by the balL How he xmld have lived sixty hours after re- ieiving such a wound is a surprise to he medical fraternity. His brain veighed 56 ounces. The coroner's inquest was also held , o-day and a large number of witnesses towho jxamined on the question as ; ave him the pistol , but nothing dafi- lite was proven. It is the opinion of , he jurymen that he got the pistol lome ten months ugo , and had it con- sealed in- the jail. The body will be buried in the Cath olic cemetery to-morrow , but not i consecrated ground , the crime of BU : cido robbing him of the right to re : in consecrated ground. His writte statement of his case has destroyed a' sympathy for him here , because of it denial of many well-knewn facts. THE BLOODY UKASE. A Profound Sensatioi Created by the Czar's Proclamation , The Powers of Life and Beat ] in the Hand of Irresponsible Officials. Efforts to Stamp Out thi Nihilists by Barbarous Measures. Russia on the Brink of a Revo lutiozi. THE CZAR 8 UKASE. Sp dal Telegram to th * Chicago Times. LONDON , April 19. Russia ha lapsed into the darkness of barbarism The Czar'a ukase , giving powers o life and death without trial or appea to the military governors of the lead' ing cities , hus'createda panic through out the empire and an intense sensa tion throughout London and Europe. . The Nihilists are the only people not staggered by the blow. Their answei is the assassination of two more police officials. The Czar hopes to stamp out Nihilism by measures more blood } than its oun. He may for a time paralyze the avenging arm , but the discontent will only sink deeper intc the heart of the nation. The revolu tionary organization is spreading in all directions. The Russian Polish emi grants iu Switzerland have agreed to mpport the revolution in Russia , and have organized a system of police which has for its chief an eminent Englishman. THE LONDON JOURNALS , which have hitherto sympathized with Russia , denounce the ukase and regret that the Czar did not give his subjects some constitutional reform before facing the lives of all the people , the nuocent and guilty alike , in the hands of irresponsible officials. A Nihilist n this city says that that would have > een the only way of arranging a nice. Thousands of Russians and Poles are sworn to lay down their ives for liberty. The ukase will only make the sacrifices greater but will not advance the permanent power of he despotism. MEETING PORCE BY FORCE. Advices from St. Petersburg and Joscow during the past tweiity- our hours have been of the he most alarming nature. The authorities of those cities have im- > osed an additionally severe censor- hip upon the telegraph , but they lave permitted a number of dispatches escribing the sitation to pass , and uveral others have been read in ipher. It is not at all exaggerating he situation to say that the repressive leasures proposed by the government n consequence of the attempt on the ife of the czar are being met in nticipation by most violent resistance nd self-assertion on the part of ie people. A state of civil war may Imost be said to exist throughout the ntire empire. The outbreak at Ros- off is only one of similar revolts that mve occurred within a short time , 'ostoff is a town of about six thous- nd inhabitants , and very ancient , the own being mentioned in history early one thousand years ago. A reat fair is held there yearly , which i attended by fiftv thousand persons , 'he town is situated on Lake Nero , nd has a cathedral , several convents Hid a seminary. The outbreak was mused by an attempt on the part of the police to arrest certain students who were suspected of hav ing knowledge of the recent iffair at St. Petersburg. The whole populace arose and a desperate affray ensued in which two of the police ffere killed and many persons wound- 3d. Finally a squadron of Cossacks irrived and succeeded , at the cost of 10 little bloodshed , in dispersing the people. Taking all the news together , ; here ia reason to fear Russia is on the brink of revolution. Revolutionists plundered and de stroyed official residences. Several of the police were killed. There are military preparations to meet expect ed risings in other districts. IRISH COLONIZATION , ipeci l to tha GIobDemocrat. . CHICAGO , ILL. , April 18.

The num ber of those who predict Congres will finally adjourn ty the 1st or mid die of June is increasing. It will b difficult to keep Congress here mud later than that The present ho weather is a cremonition of the set tied intensity of hot weather whicl is seasonable continuously here fron this time until October. The oil members know very well what dia comforts such weather brings , x number of Congressmen have alread ; gone to their homes for a few days. Conkling gave close attention ti Bayard in the Senate and it is asserto < both he and Zach Chandler intend t ( speak. Mr. Chandler says hi can fix no time for his speed but he is liable to make one of hi , vigorous but incisive speeches when , ever his indignation is aroused by thi arrogant assumptions of resterec southern bourbonism. There was one sentiment in Maxey'i speech that the American people wil applaud. He said that the man tha could make two ears of corn gro ? where one grew before , was a greatei benefitter to his country than all thi politicians put together. LEGISLATIVE WASH DAY. For more than nve consecutive houn the flood-gates of initial legislatior was opened and a great stream of billi came rushing in the House. Mondaj las long been known as legislative wash-day. There has never been such a wast day in the history of the American 3ongress , there have been times when iOO or 600 bills have been introduced n one day but yesterday the numbei was 1,385. The Ultra Southern men of the Democratic party are de- ermined not only to force through congress the political sections that have been incorporated into the ap. propriation bills now under considera tion , but to pass at this session a bill making radical changes in the tariff and currency laws. Fernando Wood has been outspoken in his opposition to all these schemes , and by the firm stand he has taken has brought down upon himself the attacks of southern men. THE LAND GRANT TEST CASK.

He made a strong speech Mid was more conservative in his sen timents than the Democrats who pro- : oded him. FORTY-SIXTH GONCRESS. JUtocUted Press Report. SENATE. WASHINGTON , April 21. Consider- Lion was resumed of the army appro priation bill. Senator Bayard defended the incor poration of general legislation in ap propriation bills , there being nothing jnusual in it ; hencu the cry of revolu- : ion was unsubstantial and foolish , ind people would condemn it. Senator Bayard having noticed the emark of Senator Blame about the listribution of the army , Senator Blaine asked the Senator to quote his , vords. Senator Bayard said he would do 10 , but would first have to send for : he Congressional Becord. Senator Blaine remarked that what 10 said was this , "that not a Senator > f the other side of the chamber had iver seen a United States soldier at .he polls. " Senator Bayard replied that if the senator preferred to limit his remarks o the actual vision of the Senators 10 had nothing to say. Senator Bayard then proceeded to end a circumstantial account of a arpe presence of troops in New York n the fall of 1870 to be present at the ) ells to prevent disorder. Senator Blaine wished to ask a [ uestion. It was why the Senator did lot select a precedent found in 1857 , vhen President Buchanan called out narines to attend a Washington mu- ticipal election , and when seven men Fere shot down by them , the scene icing within a mile of the Senate hamber. Senator Bayard said he would dis- uss that question at some future ime. Any party or set of men in his country who seek to remove the nfringement on the liberties of the American people should have his sup- lort at all times. He held that the mployment of the armies at the lolls at the South waa simply atro- ious , and during the war was claim- id as a belligerent right. Senator Bayard at some length condemned all onduct which would tend to prevent he restoration of full confidence and riondship to all party of the country , le was well assured that the hostility of one section'against the other wouli speedily lead to depression and degra dation , and ultimate ruin of both , am in conclusion expressed his confident that the American people would sup port the majority in their present leg islation as it wsi in the direction o justice and had for its object the pro teotion of the liberties of the people Senator Maxey said it was plain th constitution did not confer upon th United States government authorit' to regulate elections , therefore i could not be unconstitutional to re peal or modify an act allowing sucl action. Senator Maxey alluded ti former remarks of Senator Blaine th.t thirty of the southern Democrat ! Senators had taken part in the civi war , but he ( Maxey ) would ask dii they not attend to their duties , am were they * not as mindful of the" pub lie interests and as decorous in the ! intercourses as the Senators from an ; other part of the Union ? Their crim consisted in their inability to see will the eyes of others. They would how ever follow their o\ra oiaviction o rigbt , not thinking whom the ; will please or displease by doing so. By right , under the constitutioi they were entitled to seats on thi floor. Mr. Blaine might rest conten that they would assert equal rights o their States with others of the Union They did not attempt to stir up thi embers of the past because they be lieved in the reconciliation and resto ration of genuine brotherhood amonj the people of a common destiny am country. The Senator from Maim also referred to the name of the mar tyred President They all accordoi to Lincoln the fairness of thought am ' fearlessness'of action. In his last in augural address ho declared , "Wit ! malace toward none , with charity fo all , with firmness in the right as Go < gives us to see right , etc. " The Soutl acted as they saw the right , andaccon to the North the same degree of hon esty. The revival of strife and con tention of the past would do no goo < but much harm. He would rathe aid in building up the waste place , occasioned by the w&r , and in securinj prosperity in all its parts. After an executive session the sen ate adjourned. HOUSE.

Coreepondence of THE BBS. CRETE , Neb. , April 19 , 1879. A few days ago Crete was the scene of f great fire in which four business house : on the main street perished. HOT the fire started is not really under stood. And as no acceptable explana tion has yet been given , some think i the work of an incendiary. Thi origin of the fire was in the saloon ant the other buildings caught f rota , tha one.They wore partly covered b insurance , which has been paid. Th losers were : Moran , saloon ; Frater fruit store ; Holland , grocery ; Horner' book and stationery store in whic was kept the post office. Crete has no fire engine , and it wa. a difficult matter to keep the rest o the town from being burned. Had i not been that these were surroundec by brick buildings , a block or mor would have been consumed. Thei places are new to be filled with brie edifices , and preparations are beinj made for the erection of a number o other brick buildings , one of which i to be a large brick hotel to be buil near the depot. Crete now has eighteen hundrec population and new comers ar almost every day making inquire about houses to rent. It has gooc water power which will be developer in some way soon. A starch factory and an agriculture implement factory are talked of wit ] zeal. zeal.Doane Doane College is located here anc has an attendance of about 80 pupils The Opera House has been leasec for the coming year by Ed Hepley and Ann Eliza Young will there en tertain the people to-night. Two questions are asked by almos every man on the street. Who fur nished St. Louis with that pistol anc how long will Olive be in the peni tentiary ? Klofauda , a druggist of Wilbur , for merly of Crete , was indicted for wife poisoning by the grand jury yesterday This is the second wife that has diet suddenly on his hands , and the public are clamorous for- meeting to him "the extremely of the law. The evidence which it would not be best to make public , is very strong against him. The grass has started enough tc make the prairies look green , and the cattle are feeding upon it. JAY.

On Wednesday last Ser geant Long , Detective Stillwell and ai officer visited the house , but no traci of her could be found. The servanti said they had not heard from her SINCE THE DAT SHE LEFT. The only person in the city sh < communicated with was her counsel Mr. Townsend.

" TOO NERVUUS FOR WAR. " THE SCENES OF SHILOH QUAINTLY DE SCRIBED BY AN INDIANA FARMER. Special to the Globe-Democrat. NEW YORK , April 18. More rem iniscences of the battle of Shilch were brought out to-day in the Stanley court-martial. There was the usual crowd present , including Gens. Sher man , Sheridan and Schofield , Col. DliverD. . Green and ex-Secretary of War Belknap. The principal witness was Isaac C. 3. Suman , now a farmer in Indiana , who testified that at Shiloh he was a Uaptain in the 9th Indiana Regiment , in Gen. Hazen's brigade. He gave a quaint description of some of the scenes of the battle , and the officers present laughed heartily. 'The Adjutant General came up to me , " said he , "and I saw that he had jeen drinking ; we're just now seeing , he nose of the dog , " I said to him , and just then a solid shot tore a hole hrough his body , big enough for one's two fists. Col. Moody came up ind began to cry at the sight. I was eery much astonished at seeing him sry ; he then rode out in full view of he enemy , and I saw that he , too , lad been drinking ; he disappeared , ind while looking for him I learned rom some officers at a hospital , about ihree quarters of a mile to the rear , hat they had met Gen. Hazen near he lauding. "Moody was a good riend of mine , " said the witness later , 'but I thought he was too nervous or war. " A lighograph was afterward put in vidence which had been published by lenry Moser , representing the gal- ant charge of the 10th brigade , com- nanded by Col. W. B. Hazeii , Gen. kelson's division on the field of Shi- oh. Gen. Hazen is represented as nounted leading his brigade. In the ino are Gens. Nelson and Buell with ome of their staff. Shells are burst- ng here and there , and the dead and founded are scattered about on the round. The witness said the picture con- ained anarchronisms , and the whole [ ring was a fraud gotten up by a langer-on at Gen. Hazen'a head- uarters. He testified that Gen. ETazen's absence from his brigade was iscussed generally during the day of be battle , and that at the time his pinion of him waa the same as that hich he hold in regard co Moody , hatjie was a little to nervous for HAIR COLOE.
