letter :
To Postmaster Pearson ;
DEAB Siuir-Tho liquid is sulphuric
acid which , if brought in contact with
gunpowder or chlorate.of potash , oven
in small quantities il } cause the
powder to explode , vln the Russian
war with Eagland and France , Russia ,
I am told , placed receptacles pt
gunpowder in the ground in
front of Sevastapool and placed
on top of each charge
a small glass bulb with sulphuric acid
and underneath it a mixture of sugar
and chlorate of potash , so that when
\ the bulb was trodden on the glass
. would break and the acid would coruo
in contact with the chlorate of potash
and sugar , tire it , and thus fire the
gunpowder.
t
very respectfully yours , etc. ,
R. OaUEN&OKU
The resemblance between the char
acter ot the infernal machines and of
the Sevastopol mines , leads Professor
' .DbremuB to the natural supposition
that the attempt upon the Jives of
\ Yanderbilt and Field was the work'of
w a Russian Nihilist , of whom there are
M a few intho city , and the supposition
' " strengthened by rue fact that
among the dubris of the exploded box
were fragments of The Volka Zoitung ,
which is recognized as the local organ
of the Nihilists as well as Socialists of
New York. Postmaster Pearson
was unable to make much progress to
day owing to. the absence of the mes
senger in whoso charge the mail con
taining the infernal machines was
sent up town and of the letter carrier
who brought the Vanderbilt packngo
to the general postofiico after ono of
his rounds of collection from the lamp
post letter boxes. The case has boon
put in the hands of special service
officers , and it is expected there will
be some interesting developments to
morrow. ' >
Superintendent Walling wasinclined
to treat the matterlightly andthiaovon-
ing said the whole affair has boon too
clumsily done to have meant ic'nl busi
ness. Ho was inclined to believe it
was done by socialists for the purpose
of bringing their party into promi
nence again , and notwith the intent
of killing any one. Up to a late hour
this evening no arrests had been made.
NEW YOHK , April 30. There was
Ronaidcrablo excitement among the
soculiats in this city to-day , m consequence
quence of the captain of the police
refusing to allow them to parade to
Williamsburg ferrv , en route to laying
the corner stone of the Froobol mon
ument in Williamsburg this afternoon
in Williainsburg. Several delegations
called upon Superintendent Walling
yesterday , but ho would not change
hia dociaion , The socialists then
threatened to parade in defiance of
the superintendent's orders , Liat
night instructions were sent out to all
pohco stations in the city or
dering them to have their re
serves ready to , march
at a moment's notice" . A largo force
was also detailed from police head' '
quarters ready for any emergency ,
various sections of socialists held
i meetings at their different halls 'dur-
inK- the forenoon , and the general
opinion seemed to prevail that it
would be uhwiso for them to attempt
* ' totparado. as they would probably sot
clubbed and arrested. The report
was forwarded to their headquarters
in 'the Germania rtusatnbly rooms ,
Bowery , where nearly 500 socialists
had assembled. After some discus ,
slon it was decided to go to Williams'
burg , but not in a body , and every
thing passed off quietly.
last night some one unknown par-
left a cigar box filled with explosives
in the voatibulo on No. 318 Eaat
Nineteenth street , and about 10
o'clock there was a loud explosion
At the same time a flame rose several
feet to the ceiling. Assistance was
promptly on hand and the flames ex
tinguished. It ia believed it was the
" work of socialists , who thought they
had put the box in the superintendent
dent a house. Walling resides at 311
same stress. The police ar < * working
on a clue and soon expect to make
some arrests.
