If Secretary Robeson had taken the Herald's advice a little enrlirr the chances of lindiag the vessel an<J the men connected with it would have been more certain ; but better late thnn never. Captain Braino is a faithful and capable officer, and he will do everything that is possible to be done to rescue the ill-fat?d vessel and unravel the mysteries of the Polaris expedition. The Tbotjbles Between toe Sultan and the Khedive have at last resulted in a very im portant measure for Egypt and its ruler. Ac cording to the news which we print to-day the Khedive is now virtually independent, and not likely to be disturbed hereafter by the govern ment The augmented army which the Sul tan allows him seems to be a guarantee of peace, but the other acknowledgments contained in the firmin are likely to be of more importance to Egypt. The free in ternal government which is recognized as belonging to the country ruled by the Khedive is a great point gained. The right to make treaties is even of more significance, for it is one of the attributes of nationality, without which the construction of the Soudan Kailway and other enterprises would have been dif ficult of execution. Egypt is again taking her place among the nations of the eartii, and this time she will be visited by moro than one vtiviu* W toll the nu?rj vl Uvt jprogrqw^ On the KoM to Khiva? The Approach to Central Aila-An UI?rtiUa| mn& Important Report. We publish this morning a welcome and im portant letter (dated Easter Sunday last) from a special Heiuxd correspondent, detailed to report the movements of the Russian military expedition against Khiva. It relates to the desert regions of the Kirgheez Tartars, the frontier of Turkestan, and "fort No. 1, lvaza linsk, on the Sir-Daria, or Jaxartes River, forty miles from the Aral Sea." This letter will be found exceedingly interesting from the passing observations of tho writer upon the country traversed and the various races and colonies inhabiting it, and from the incidents and accidents on tho way, and the difficulties experienced by our traveller in securing the needful relays of horses or camels from point to point. To most of our readers this journey l'roui European into Asiatic Russia, will recall our corre spondence of past years from the Euphrates and the Tigris, from Babylon and Bagdad, and from the Nile and tke lofty table lands of Abyssinia to Unyaayembe and Lake Tangan yika in tho heart of Equatorial Africa. Our commissioner to Khiva, starting l*om St Petersburg as his base of opera tions, says there he "met a troop of corre spondents, hurrying like vultures to the battle fi Id, all of thorn bearing letters from tho highest and most distinguished personages to others equally lofty and well considered and all of them desirous of being conducted to the held of duty with all the pomp and cir cumstance of war, and all of them being politely but firmly refused." Finding that permission to accompany the army was in variably denied them, our correspondent, as suming the responsibility and trusting to his lucky star as an American, nude his prepara tions and set out on his long, difficult and hazardous journey upon his own aocouut. Fifty hours by rail and he v. is at Saratof, on the Lower Volga; but from that point a journey over wild mountains and wilder deserts of fifteen hundred miles, to bo travelled I y post or by such meaus of trans portation as he could command en route, lay between him and his destination. How this journey was accomplished as far as the immediate basin of tbo Sea of Aral, or Salt Lake, our correspondent pleasantly tells us in his cheerful report. His journey was interest ing alike from its pleasures and its dangers. On the railway to Saratof he made the acquaintance of Prince Genghis, a lineal descendant of that terribb Tartar warrior, Genghis Khan. He in spected the prosperous German colonies planted on the Volga by Catherine tho Second. Among the Ural Mountains he was caught in one of those whirlwinds of snow, of the terrors of which our people in the Rocky Mountains know something from their rough experience. There will also be found something new in our correspondent's testimony in favor of the Cossacks, hitherto supposed to be hardly abova the standard in barbarism of our Comanche Indians. But mark what our disinterested witness says of the Cossacks on reaching the first Cossack station on his journey: ? "What a change it was from tho Bashkirs and the peasants, and how I luxuriated in the iresh while bread and cream of tho kind-hearted old Cossack, w ho set before me the best he had ! How clean and neat everything was!" And again, "Russia can boast no better, braver, kinder and nobler race than these same Cos sacks," the bugbear of Western Europe. "Wherever there was a Cossack woman the utation was neat and orderly." The men "are intelligent and a great majority of them can read and write." "They are the Americans of Russia ? the pioneers of civilization." We see from this how even a little actual observation will serve to dispel the prejudices and errors of centuries of cultivation. The next agreeable surprise of our pilgrim for Khiva was the inevitable Yankee, at Oren burg, on the Ural, tho dividing river be tween Europe and Asia? a Mr. Groves, from Boston, a musician in the service of Russia as Military Musical Director of tho Orenburg District. At the same station Mr. Schuyler, late Secretary and Charge d' Affaires of the American Legation at St. Petersbuig, was found, intent upon a journey of exploration through Central Asia, and whom thenceforward our fortunate adventurer secured as a welcome, intelligent and agreeable travelling companion. In all these and in many other incidents, by the way, this letter from tho basin of Lake Aral is very interest ing. But touching tho country between Oren burg and Lake Aral, or the Aral Sea, in refer ence to the construction of a railway, the ob servations of our correspondent give to this enterprise the highest importance in demon strating, wo may say, the feasibility of the route and the work and the advantages which will result to Russia and to civilization from the completion of the road even to the Aral. In this connection it appears that at Orenburg this Russian campaign against the barbarous Khan of Khiva is regarded much in the same light as we in New York regard the news of a fresh expedition against tho Apaches in Ari zona. Our correspondent describes the steppes, or pmiritts and deserts, between the Ural River and the Aral Sea as reminding him of "the plains of Colorado, or, rather, those of Ari zona. " The steppe, he suys, in general, "is covered with grass and various small plants, including multitudes of tulips, and numerous low bushes which help to furnish fuel." Even the Desert of Kili-Kum, hitherto de scribed "as a howling waste of sand, is covered with bushes and other plants, and spaces of loose drifting sand are very in* frequent." Against the building ol this pro jected railway our "prospecting" traveller nays there are no difficulties in the way so great as were successfully overcome in the construction of the Pacific Railroad; that the ground rises and falls in easy gradients; that few curves, cuttings or embankments will be required; that wood for the ties can be ob tained on the Ural Mountains and the iron in abundance, and the fuel for the engines "from the rich ooal fields lately discovered on the upper course of tho Sir-Daria." Further more, it appears that explorations have already been undertaken in view of this enterprise, bo that this Russian military expedition into Khiva may be considered as a movement to clear the way for the railroad. With a connection from tho Volga to Oren burg, tho railroad from this latter point to the Taxartes, or the Sea of Aral, means, in the JudJWMUt vm liyavfepyuUvut, jivUmw let* than the civilization of Central Asia, the con quest of a rich commerce, the reclamation of desert* by irrigation, the overthrow of Lslamism in one of the strongest of ita strong holds, and tho daily Hbbald in the reading rooms of Samarcand, Khiva, Bokhara and Herat. This great intercontinental iron artery means all this and something more. It means tho sproad of Russian influence to the summits of the Hindoo- Koosh. "It means that Cabul is nearer to St Petersburg than to London." This Russian military expedition, in brief, under these lights, is magnified into one of the grandest of modern enterprises, even apart from the ultimate question of Brit ish India, for the conquest of Khiva is but an incident in the general designs of this great movement We have already, in several editorial dis cussions of this important subject, disclosed the immense Central Asiatic trade which will be commanded and developed by this railway from Orenburg to the Aral basin, and of the dormant traffic also which to spring into lite only awaits a railway trom the Mediterranean, via the Valley of the Euphrates, to the Persian Gulf. The one is a Russian enter I prise, the other is a British project and within the next ton or fifteen years they will doubt less both be accomplished facts. When Eng land finds that Russia is actually building a railway towards India by way of Turkestan work will be actively commenced on the pro jected road from the Mediterranean, via tho Euphrates, to tho Persian Gulf, from which a line of steamers will connect the overland line with Bombay, thus avoiding the tetlious route of tho Red Sea and the heavy tolls of tho Suez Canal. In any event, we hail this Russian army of invasion destined for the occupation of Khiva and tho whola of Turkestan as a gniud movement in the cause ot modern civili zation and Christianity, and from our faitliiul correspondent detailed for this duty, we ex pect, trom time to tinio, reports of the prog ress, movements and results of the expedition, which will not only bj a continued source of pleasure aud edification to our readers, but which will command the special attention of the leading statesmen aud meu of progress t hroughout the tour quarters of the glubo. Carrying the U?bsl Flag Through the Northern States. A misguided youth in Alexandria, Va., in imitation of Sergeant Bates, proposes to pro ceed to Boston for the purpose of starting from Buuker Hill on a tour through tho Northern States, carrying with him the rebel flag unfurled. We are inclined to regard this as a foolish as well as a hazardous under taking. Not that the flag-bearer is in danger of personal violence from Northern Union sol diers, but it is calculated to arouse memories of such places as Andersouville, that might as well bo smothered. Moreover, this Alexan dria adveuturer should remember that his case I and that of Sergeant Bates are slightly differ I ent. While he is carrying a flag that consti tutes no national emblem, and travels through a region that claims to be the conqueror, Bates carried the victorious American standard, tho j emblem of a powerful nation, through a de I l'eated sectiou of the country and among a subdued, if not a subjugated, people. Besides, it was the only flag that could be recognized even by these unfortunate people, and henco not likely to bo insulted. However, the whole aJfair is a humbug of the first water, and when the rebel flag-bearor gets within the shadow of the shaft on Bunker's Hill he will probably think better of his silly venture and abandon it altogether. GamhetU and the French Aiiembly, On Tuesday, at Versailles, Gnmbetta put forth his hand. It seems that the ujw govern ment has issued a circular, addressed to the prefects of departments. Tho circular in quires minutely mto the position of J he pro vincial press and suggests" confidentially the employment ot subsidies and such other means ol influence as might secretly bo brought to bear upon its control. This document, which fell into Gambetta's hands, the ex-Dictator read to the Assembly, the reading, as was most natural, causing a profound sensation. M. Beule, speaking for the government ad mitted the authenticity of the document and accepted the responsibility for issuing the same. Violent scenes ensued ; but when tho question was brought to a vote the govern ment was sustained, showing that the con servative ranks are as yet unbroken. Gam betta, however, has made capital out of the exposure, and it will not be at all wonderful if, when the inevitable conflict is fought at the ballot box, this unfortunate circular should be a source of regret to the men who now control France. Fair play is a jewel. If the con servatives mean to win they ought to seek success by honest means. Evidently Gam betta, who has much fight in him and who means fight is a careful observer and littlo disposed to lose his opportunity. Dnlnrii In the Political Market. There is scarcely a movement of a note worthy kind in the political market just at this time in any part of the country. Louisi ana soemsto have been "pacified," and, while Arkansas occasionally has a sensational political spasm, it is more tho result of some local squab ble about spoils, in which one party behaves as badly as the other, than any indication of the existence of a political element of disturb ance or importance. Thero has been a slight ripple in Pennsylvania in consequence of the republican organ at the State capital putting the question, "Is there any danger of the republican party being defeated in Pennsylva nia this year?" and answering its own ques tion by saying, "If the leaders of the party, the men who assume to manage affair*, are so reckless as to disregard the will and tho wishes of the people, there is a strong possibility of such action being resented, for the reason that the effect of the resentment cannot imperil other elections to follow." These remarks tho Philadelphia Press (quasi republican) consid ers significant; and the fact that they are reiterated by a large number of newspapers of the same political complexion as the Har risburg organ gives them a still moro signifi cant character. The Philadelphia Ayr, a venerable democratic organ, says that all the indications are that there will be this Fall a thorough radical ring ticket in the field lor State and local offices in that city. To this the A<j? doos not object ? for it thinks it will be the "easiest to beat" The campaign in Ohio, although the republi cans havo their full ticket in the field, has not jl<\ cwwneuued, Uij iouwcrtity uvt . named their candidates. The farmers' move ment is progressing out West and in some other sections of the country, but it seems to lack that distinctive individuality and concen tration upon tho solution of those positive po litical problems by which great political move ment can only achieve a national triumph. The snccess of what were known os the farmers' candidates in Illinois at the late judicial election, howover, indi cates that the organization possesses a power which, rightly directed, may even tually lead to important results nationally. Massachusetts is a little agitated upon the subject of the next ropubliean nomination for Governor, the friends of General Butler mak ing strong efforts in that direction. From the South the political tidings are of a placid character, except from Virginia, where the friends of the rival candidates for the respec tive party nominations for Governor are using their best endeavors in primary meetings to effect the choice of delegates to the State con ventions friendly to their several favorites. With these few exceptions w6 may say that the political market at this moment, all over the country, exhibits an aspect of unexampled ilulness. The Jerome Park Races Yesterday, The lowering clouds diminished the at tendance at Jerome Park yesterday. There was quite a falling off from the multi tude that sought admission on the first day of tho meeting. Yet not all the frowns of the clerk of the woather could mar the elegance of the toilets of the ladies who were present. They came, saw and conquered, and the sternor sex acknowledged allegiance and made professions of having lost bets

without tho slightest reference to (he roal facts of the case. It was a special triumph for tbo gavoliers and pemiquhrs who take charge of tho apparently needless tusk of painting the lily and gilding, Ac. A lady is always sure to win at these races, no matter what the result may be. Year alter year the American Jockey Club has pursued the even tenor of its way, making respectability and order the fundamental ele ments in horse racing, and carefully avoiding the many snares that too highly spiced demo cratic toleration must necessarily bring "with it. The Club now stands the first of all American ruling associations, and nothing can be more enjoyable for ladies and gentle men than a race day at Jerome Park. Tho present meeting opened under the most favora ble auspices, and nothing 3hort of a thunder storm can deter pleasure seekers from tho course. When wealth, fashion and respecta bility join hands on the grand stand and at tho club house it is no wonder that the Jerome Park races should be an unequivocal success. Murder Canes Before the Courts* Two prisoners yesterday pleaded "not guilty" in the Court of Oyer and Terminer to indictments for murder. First came young Walworth, who, forgetting the ties of natural affection and tho filial duty ol respect and obedience, locked his father in a narrow hotel room, poured a volley of bullets into him, sent his soul to its last account without a moment's respite or a warning word, and left his dishonored body lifeless on the floor. He met tbo tcrriblo charge with as little apparent emotion as be might have done an invitation to dinner. No sign could be seen in his appearance that he felt in the least that he stood before a high court of justice charged with the most heinous of crimes, one which will stain with infamy to all coming time a name hitherto among the brightest. Counsel promised to bo ready for his trial at an early day, the Court and tho District Attor ney most properly desiring that there shall be no unnecessary delay. Walworth's compan ion in tho dock was a German of small appar ent intelligence but brutal nature, accused of kicking a companion to death a fortnight ago. His case will bo proceeded with next week. It is for the public interest that all murder cases shall be pressed to a conclusion with the utmost vigor. Speedy exocution is the most valuable characteristic of punishment. Let the manslaycrs learn that justice is swift and sure. Croquet mt Central Park. A subject not less momentous than that of cigars at Central Park Garden threatens to claim attention? namely, whether gentlemen shall be permitted to join with ladies iu croquet in the Park itself. At first sight it seems as if sneh a privilege is perfectly innocent ; and in an age when the feminine voice is loudly lifted against tobacco, and when the petticoat, not contented with its victories at Yassar, aims to enter Harvard, and, as a natural con quenee, every other college in the United States, it seems a pity to deny a gentleman the little compensation which such a privilege would yield him for the threatened curtail ment of his hitherto exclusive rights. But we shall leave the matter to adjust itself, and in this the characteristic generosity and modesty of the softer sex will boar a hand, for we can not conceive of a party of ladies playing cro quet habitually and enjoyingly by themselves for a long time together, and we can as little imagine them prosecuting the game under the fire of a circle of observant masculine eyes. This is one of the subjects which, from its very nature, is so sure to right itself, that no very active measures, cither by tho Park Commis sioners or by outsiders, can be necessary. It would be as easy to find the precise date at which the Man of Menton lived and flourished as to suggest any active remedy for an irregu larity which, like this, contains its cure within itself. Tm Hanging or C'awutherh in Barrio, Canada, yesterday, is another instance of the promptness with which our cousins across the border gTapple with the criminal and mete out full justice. As stated in our special despatch elsewhere to-day, the man in a fit of jealousy brutally beat his wife to death in the presence of their three children in December last. He had accused his wife of infidelity, but the law of the land admitted of no palliation on this account. After every legal effort had been ex hausted to prove him insane, and the experi enced counsel had threaded their way through all the intricacies that encompass the statute book, inexorablo justice stepped forward and proclaimed him a murderer, and the Judge very properly sentenced him to death. No lalse philanthropy or political sentiment was admitted in mitigation of the terrible penalty. He was executed on the day and hour ap pointed. Ilere is a lesson for New York that tfbuuUl be cauitullv read cuiuidvied, PERSONAL INTELLIGENCE. Rev. J. E. Gault, of Pennsylvania, Is stopping at the Ilon'man House.

A Western editor, with a right appreciation of tbe baclc pay grab, says there la one kind of " back pay" be highly lavors, that of (le.inquent subscribers. Let him try the "cash in advance" system, and be will not be obliged to complain of delinquent sub scribers. Joseph H. Fore, who shot and killed hla brother in-law tn St. Louis some two years sluce, celebrated his release from a lunatic asylum by splitting opeu the head of bia wife with a hatchet. Some people are cruel and wicked enough to think be deserved hanging. Congressman Holman, of Indiana, insists that he has not drawn hla back pay, what tbe Indianapolis Journal says to the contrary notwithstanding. He ought to know, and as his name docs not appear In any late list of American visitors tn Vleuna he ought to be believed. The Chicago Inter-Ocean affirms that tliero is "a wild Australian" in the office of the Time* of that city, who ts harmless, and is kept there apparently for the excluslvenesa purpose of yelling "You lie," whenever his master gives him the sign by whipping his legs or rubbing his ears. The personal ameuitlea among the editors in Chicago have certainly a very striking tendency. The Kansas /importer denies positively that the late "Hon." S. C. Poraeror has entered actively into the canvass to fill the vacancy occasioned by tho resignation ol Senator Caldwell, and adds:? '?Politically be is as dead as a smoked herring, and he knows It. While he is smart and shrewd and cunning an I all that, he is dishonest and corrupt, and the people of this State have done with him, as Uiey have, we trust, with all others like him."

WEST P0I2JT. General Sherman Arrived at the "Point"? Great Preparation* tor the Alumni Dinner, for Distinguished Gaeats and Old Graduates?A Candy Excitement in the National Nnrtery, WE3T POINT, N. Y., June 11, 1873. General Sherman and his Adjutant General did not arrive until thia afternoon, and then there was a flaunting of flag.? and burning of powder In con sequence, very dcllghtlul and appropriate. Gen eral Helntzletnan, General Palmer and a host oj. other well known officers also arrived by rail and steamer to attcn;l the dinner at Cozzens' Hotel to morrow night. From present indications It Is safe to say that there will be a larger and more distin guished company of graduates of the Military Academy here to morrow than has attended any previous meeting, of the alumni. Tlie large banquettlng hall at the hotel will be dressed with flags and flowers, and the distinguished veterans will have the one uraglng smiles of a large detach* lin nt ol ladies while they are engaged in doing justice to Cozzens' menu. The Presideut, General Sherman and Secretary Helktiap will be the chiefs ol the feast, but General Grant will not preside; that post of honor will, probably, be tilled by Mr. Wlllets, a gentleman who ontered the West Point Academy in ls<13 and graduated in 1S16, and Is now tin* oiilesc graduate living. The ball to be given t,o the graduating class by the cadets of the fourth class is to be held in tho mess ball. Of course it will be a grand affair. The Ave cadets who allowed their love lor candy to overcome them on Sunday night are still under arrest, but it is to be hoped that they will be re leased for the ball. it the military authorities are Inexorable it is probable that the ladies at the hotels will present the unfortunate young gentie ITieB wiiTi stime nice boxes of mixed and assorted candles. The matter was much discussed tills morning. A cavalry drill in the riding school, witnessed by the President, General Sherman, the Secretary or War, the Hoard of Visitors and a distinguished company, was the feature of to-day's excitement. There was a parade, of course. At eight o'clock the first cadets indulged iu mortar practice. The firing was pretty good. There was a nop at the hotel on the parade ground at a later hour and much hilarity generally. SIR GEORGE C ARTIER. Canada Honoring the Memory of the Dead Baronet? Arrival of tho Remains at Montreal? An Immense Procession to the Court House? Decorations In the Hall? The Body Lying In State. Montreal, June 11, 1S73. At ten o'clock Jacques Cartler square, Court House square and the revetment wall ol the wharf for over a mile were densely packed with people to witness the arrival of the remains of Sir George Cartler. The steamer Druid anchored during the night near Vecheres, opposite the former residence of Mr George's childhood, and steamed up early this morning, reaching the city at ten o'clock. Sho had on board all the near relatives or the deceased baronet, with the repreaentatlvea of the city press, and Hon. Mr. Langevlnc, rep resenting the government, with a detachment ol li battery and a band. As soon as tiie Druid was moored at La Prairie wharf, the mem bers of the Corporation In a body, a large number or clergymeu and members of the picas went on | board. Prayers were said, aud theu the body was removed to the hearse on the shore. Minute guns were flred rrom St. Helen's lsiand. aud the shipping In the harbor liuug (lags at hail-mast, and three different military bauds played appropriate iuneral mustc. The procession then formed and ascended slowly lroin the wharf to Commissioner street, an I thence up the steep Incline to Jacques Cartler square, owing to the immense crowd, which was estiuiaied to uumoer i\ooo persons, the march was greatly retarded, and rrequent halts were made. At leugth the Court House was reached at the foot of the great stack of stone steps under the main portico. The body was carried up to the vestibule, lollowed by a long hue of clergymen aud peraoual Irlends of the deceased. The open space below presented a iea ol uncovered heads. From the vestibule the coffin was transierred to the cnapeile Ardente especially prepared ior it., and which waa fitted up in magniilcent taste, with candelabra, flowers, festoons, garlands, ancient urns burning lambent lights and the usual insignia of the de ceased baronet's creed. A guard is stationed hero, and the people are now flocklsg in to view the remains, passing in by one i door and out through another. The body will re- , main on view all day to-day and to-morrow. The flags all over the city are displayed at half i staff. ______ ELECTION OF 8TATB OFFICERS IN JEW HAMPSHIRE. concord, June 11, 1S73. In the House this afternoon the bill to amend the statutes to provide for taxation of money de posited in banks ontslde this state was read a third time and passed. A message was received irom the Governor transmitting the reports of the coromitteea on insane paupers and on the Interna tional Prison Congress; also a resolution of the Maine Legislature in relation to snrve.ving and working the line between that state and New Hampshire. They were ordered te be laid on the table. Tho House and senate then went into Con vention for the purpose of electing State officers. The following were elected Secretary or state, B. F.
