PAHIS , March 28. 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.

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

her reign , was bigoted in the
opinion that "it takes three ger era-

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

Investigation of the St. Louis
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

A Profound Sensatioi
Created by the Czar's
Proclamation ,
The Powers of Life and Beat ]
in the Hand of Irresponsible
Efforts to Stamp Out thi
Nihilists by Barbarous
Russia on the Brink of a Revo
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
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.
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.

JUtocUted Press Report.
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

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.
A bill for the distribution of th
unexpected balance of general awar
was introduced by Mr. Frye and thre
financial bills by Mr. Murch. Sev

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

The only person in the city sh <

informed that young Nathan wasdowi

Late that evening the Sergeat callec

Nathan himself When asked if h <
could give any information as to tht
whereabouts of the woman who shoi
him , he replied that ho knew nothing
at all about her , and , more , had mad
up his mind not to say anything aboul
the case. If any information was tc

his counsel , ex-Judge Cordoza. Ser
Keant Long communicated important
information to Judge Murray yester

The sergeant was asked if there wai
anything new in the case.
"There is , " was the reply.
"Is she arrested yet ? "
"No. "
"Is she likely to bol"
"She is out of my jurisdiction. "
"You mean she is out of this State '
"Yes ; sh is out of this State. "
"I understand you have definite in

"I have. When this case was pu
into my hands , ! determined to follow
it all through to the end , and I have
kept close upon it all the time , ane
that , too , with limited resources at m ;
command. To-day I called upon Na
than's counsel , Judge Cardoza , an (
also upon Mr. Townseud , Mrs. Bar
rott'a counsel , and information wa
communicated to me , the character o
which I am not at liberty to state. "
"Would you give even a hint as tc
how the case stands ? "
"Well , it is this : After the shoot
ing Birdie Bell fled to some place in
Pennsylvania , where she is now. This
affair preyed upon her mind ; she waa
driven from her residence and friends
she felt her condition very much
got sick and went to bed , where she ia
now prostrated with brain ferer. Her
health has been ao shattered that il
is expected she will not recover ; in
fact , she is in a dying condition now. "
"What part of Pennsylvania is she
in ? "
"She is in Philadelphia. "

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
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
