certain grand duchosa , whom the czar
baa promised to promote to the dig
nity of an authentic highness. I
moan the spouse of Alexis Aluxan-
drovitch Quite a romance is the
story ot this affair. Among the
ladies of honor of the late
Empress Marie was one of her countrywomen -
women , a young Hessian of whom she
was particularly fond. One evening ,
when alone with her sovereign , Mlle
X. threw herself at the imperial feet ,
and with many Uars , avowed that nho
was loved by the grand duke and re
turned his passion , wherefore she besought -
sought her majesty to consent to their
union. The imperial reply was an
immediate order to the petitioner to
retire to her family at Darmstadt , and
to the prince to join bin squadron In
the Baltic. But the august muateri
of Russia hnd not calculated
upon the strength of trim
love , Mulcmoiaellu pot nway from
her parents , or more probably
was hulpi d by them to mnko tlio jotr-
ney , lot k paisaco on the Ctmard
flUnmor and joined the man t f her
chnico in America , whnre they wore
ptivntuly married. You romniutar

you nor nny ono else had nn idea that
ho wna thoio on n sort of wedding
trip. I mil assured , though , that tlio

the episode is of much tnoro recent
date. However this tniy b - , the
p.iir were joined in holy wedlock ,
nnd thu rnctption of their mar
riage cortilicito raised n terrible
commotion on the banks of the Nnvn ,
Disgrnccs nnd vicissitudes of nil kinds
followed the exploit ; Alexis wn
threntoned nnd c joled to break elf
the "disgraceful connection , " but he
hold out bravely , nnd na the czur'a
own nll'tir with Princess Dolgorouki
cmno in the nick of tiino to incline
tint paternal heart to indulgence ,
Alex'indur II. finally agreed to shut
hia eyea to hia son's situation , nl-
thotigl sternly refusing to recognize
the legitimacy of the m.irringu. Like
the people' in the fairy land , Aiuxis
nnd his bride were very happy ,
and now , nt the solicitation
of thn Czarina , who appreciates the
buauticn of u united household , Alex
ander ill. proposes to ivo the niiir-
ringo lua official sanction. Alexis ia
one of the most distinguished mem
bers of the imperial family. Ho re-
xiMiiblos , in many ways , hia uncle , the
Grand Duke Constantine , nnd , be
lieving himself much superior , intol-
lectuully and physically , to hia broth

About two years ago Prof. Ward , who ,

being fine specimens of taxidermy ,
and ua n result Mr. Colgate wua in

About the B'uno tiino Mr. Morris K ,

gave Prof. Wnrd nn order for a com
plute collection of thu nummula and
birds of the North AiiiKricrn region ,
consisting of the United States , Can
ada , Alaska nnd Greenland. The
lirat collection was to cost $7,000 nnd
the second 910,000 , In January , 1881 ,
the professor started on the sixth tour
which he hud mudo around the world
ninco 1870 , and naturally hia chief ob
ject was to fulfill thu orders for U- *
Nuw Yuik museum. After vialling
almost every country and city of im
portance in one-half of the globe , ho
returned to thu United States last
May , none the worse tor the hardships
and fatigues attendant on such n voy-
ugo , nntl the i ichor for a number of
exceedingly valuable specimens ,
"Thu portions of the world I visit

answer to a question , "included Am-
traliu , Nuw Xualund , the Polynesian

Cninu and Japan. First , I went via
San Fr.Hicisco to New Xoaland , whore
1 was lucky enough to obtain among
other tilings BOIIIO excellent specimens
of the remains of n bird called moa
dinomis The animal is now altogether
extinct , but ita bones can bu found
buried in large quantities all over the
island. It belongs to the family of
thu ostrich , and reaches u respectable
height. 1 also obtained a few speci
mens of the nptory , a large and al
most wingless bird belonging to the
ostrich family , and a few of the
very rare battcria punotata , the
vole representative of the order of
rhynchocephulma of lizards. There
nre no monkeys whatever in Nuwda -
land , The next place I viMled wus
Australia , including Van Dieman'a
Land. Hero animals of the marsupial
family , otherwise known as pouch nn-
mala , of which the kangaroo is the
most ordinary good specimens which
1 lent homo ready for glutting. I
furthermore found gocd tppcimcns of
irinthorinci , those peculiar nninnls
with the hond and web foot of a duck
nnd the body of n beaver. From
Australia I traveled Is the Dutch
poajcftsinnn in Kist India , composed

by the dozens. Many tine specimens
were brought to my honilquartors nt

some of them will bo ready soon for

"My next voyage wns to the Malay

I captured little besides snakes. But
thoHO wore not to bu despised. Sumu
of my boa-constrictors are eighteen to
twenty foot loin ; , and Hums also some
excellent specimens of pythons. In
Cliina , wlii'ro I now wont , I found
doer nnd pheasants in any quantity ,
nnd helped myself plentifully. I
needed oniy to visit the markets
for what I wanted in this re-
rpect. To my surprise I found that
thu tiger had beootuo ncclinnited in
China , nnd not only there but in such
a northern country ns Coroa. There
thn nniiiiitl'ii hiiir is lout' and shaggy ,
nnd much of its southern fiorcunoaa
bus been replaced with lethargy. In
lapun I found many monkeys. Ltku
the Corenn tiger , thu clim.ito has had
its rlicet on thorn. Their fur ia lung
nnd bushy and they are comparatively
tamo. I wan nHtuniahed to find these
creatures wading through thu snow
with evident delight , BO thoroughly
had they become acclimated. Wild
boars and peasants nru perfectly nt
ho.iu in Japan , and no are moat of our
domestic animals. Fioin Japan I re
turned to S < iii Francisco , nnd reached
my home in Uocliontor in May. Of
courae , while collecting animals I did
not neglect thi ) other departinontfl ,
nnd I have enriched my tnatitu.ion
with numberless birdn , fossils , ores
with something of ovr-rytlung pertain

Special Dl ptch to Tiu HtR ,
MOIIILK , August 21. Tn Choctnw-
county , Alabama , .thu inst. , a
bundle of papers disclosing a well or
ganized plot among the nrgroos to kill
the entire white population of that
county , was found near ono of their
rendezvous by two gentlemen , who-
laid the matter before the solicitor.
Oa the 10th n quiet meeting of the
ciiisitftis of Mount Sterling mid Butler
wna called at Bailer to consider the
best mndo of suppressing the intend
ed outbreak and massacre. Alter dis
cussion it wna agreed that the follow
ing ringleaders Jack Turner , F. D.
B rney , Jesse Wilson , Peter Hill ,
Willis Lyman , Aaron Scott and t tan go
West , to whom hud boon assigned the
duties of lending the respective f quads
to Butler , Mount Sterling , Deaota-
ville und other places nnd killing
nil whites nt each plnce ,
should bo nrrosted and
lodged in j-iil. Their nrreat wna
cilVotod the J7th without disturbance
or bloodshed , The same day n mass ,
mooting of citizens of nil classes waa
called for Saturday to dccido the fnto
of the prisoners. The plot had been
in cxiMemco aiuco 1878 nnd the con
spirators now number 400. They
have powder , shot nnd tuna nnd think
( .IioniHolves autliciently strong to nc-
compliph their fiendish design. Sun
day liight , the 17th of September , had
be-on appointed for its consummation.
The papers further showed that thia
day wna selected because then the
white people would bo nt n
ciimp mooting niiel unarmed nnd
could oiler no roaistence. The
meeting cillcd for Siturd iy brought
together about 700 men , among whom ,
were about 100 ncgroon , who , nftor
hearing the papers read , by an almost
unanimotia vote decided that Jack
Turner waa a turbulent nnd danger
ous character , n regular firebrand in
the community , and that thu public
demanded hia immediate death. Ho
was accordingly hanged ab'iut 1:15 :
the same afternoon in the presence of
the assembled multitude. The crowd
then dispersed and all signs of iho
disturb nco ceased. Everything was.

WARHINOTON , August 21. In the
long pending case of the Djun Richmond
mend mining company vs. Broncho
company's claima for certain mineral
tracts of land for certain mineral
tracts of laud at Tucson , Arizona ,
Acting Secretary Joslyn to-day ren
dered a decision in favor of the
former. The decision cites that the
allowance of the application by the re
ceiver , who was acting aa register by
order of the commissioner of the gen
eral land office , during siiBponsion of
that ollicor by the president , was nn
act of a di'f.ic'.o . officer , and that the
entry should be admitted accordingly.
Totlon , counsel for Hrady , called at
tention to the fact that there was not
one order in proof which had boon ' * *
mudo by Br.idy. E/ory order pre
sented wua merely a memorandum
not signed by Thomas J. Brady , but
simply signed "Brady. " There .waa
not a word of evidence to show that
Brady had ever certified an order to
the aixth auditor. Was a man to bo
gu nsed into prison ? or presumed into
jikil ? Charges hud been made against
Turner. How in the name of decency
had poor Turner been draugod into
trial ? What had ho d no ? Even
Kerr had been bound to _ admit ho
could suy naught ngninut him. It was
ono of the grossest outragca over per
petrated on an innocent man.
Some other motive than vindication of
the law was nt the bottom of this ex
traordinary proceeding -thia extra
ordinary grouping of men from all
parts of the land , He was ready to
niako wuger that thia identical kind of
prosecution could bo carried OIL
ugainst any publio officer who waa
charged with the disbursement of
money. It could bo commented upon
with just na much venom aa thia caao
hud been commented upon , that the
secretary of war hud sent two rogi-
mentato Tongue river in order to de
fend the settlers. Before the conclu
sion of Totten'a remarks , court ad
journed ,
The following telegram was received
to-day by Commissioner of Indian
Affaire Price :
