woa a long discussion regarding th
section of the post-oflico appropria
lion bill authorizing the postniastc
general to expend a nually horeafte
§ 25,000 for mail transfer over the , SI
Louis bridge. It is claimed that n
ordinary railroad rates are pai
through the Huosac tunnel , the Balti
more tunnel under the Susquehanna
arid other costly structures , there wane
no reason why extreme rates shoule
bo paid hero.
Mr. Robinson offered an amend
niont tcquiring mails to be carric
over the bridge on the fastest train
run over it without extra rates
Mr. Cameron offered an amendmon
in effect that hereafter when railroa
companies refuse to transport mail o
their fastest trains they shall bo required
quired to do so , and their pay for sue !
services reduced ono-half.
Mr. Mohnan oflored an amer.duien
requiring all railroads which hare received

ST. PKTKHSiit'uo , February 5. The
Navoo Vremya , in cuniinontini ; upoi
the London and Manchester indigna
tion meetings ill behalf of tho.lmvs
denies the sorioiis charges broughl
against the Russian authorities , soldiery
diory and people , and says : "Tho
Jews have evidently sot themselves
to tie ! not very difficult tusk of exciting
ing Knglish opinion against Russia.
In this they m.iy likely enough suc
ceed , but the service they render
their eo-roligionists in Russia is a' '
least questionable. The Jewish question
tion hero is an internal one in the
strictest sense of the word , and no in
terference from without can or will bo
allowed. Its solution is not bo looker
for in England , but depends above nl
on the extent to which the Jews thorn
solves arn willing to abjure their pros.
out religious and social tendencies.
The Karaim Jews have never aroused
the poputoi hatred as ih 'ir brethren t
the Talmud , and if the present agita
tion in England shows that the latter
will not abandon without a struggle
the principle which leads them to ox-
plioit every one who is not a Jew , all
the worse for them. The Russian
government cannot make cor.cosHions
to this principle without serious inju
ry to the well-being and quiet of the
empire. " The Knr.iim Jews , existing
in' small numbers , chiefly in tlio
Crimea , and , comparatively speaking ,
but lately brought under Russian
rule , enjoy all the rights and priv
ilcges of Russian subjects , as the
central authorities took care to re
mind the people in a recent circular.
It is true they live peaceably enough
in Russia , and got on pretty well with
their neighbors , but the true conclu
sion to bo drawn is obvious , though it
may not suit the Navoo Vromya.
The tit. Petersburg Journal to day ,
speaking witli an air of authority ,
