Desiring to obtain some light on the foggy subject of Turkish politics, 1 called yesterday upon Hon. Ueorge H. Boker, lato United Statos Minister to Russia, who has recently returned to his home in this city, as ooo of the tew persons on this sido of the Atlantio at all eapable ol yielding such light. Mr. Boker has bad special opportunities for becom ing acquainted with the true Inwardness of the Eastern question, as well from bis residence at St. Petersburg? where, as we all know, the affairs or tho ' sick man" nrcj regarded with a peculiarly tender Interest?as through his sojourn at tho metropolis of the Ottoman Empire as our Minister to that nation previous to his ippoininient to the Russian mission. I met Mr. lloker at his lavurito resort, the aristo cratic Philadelphia Club, of which he was long tlmo president, his untural adability not at all disturbed by ii^iulgouoo In ono of tho fameti dinners of tho cluU Sealing bimseli beside mo the poet and diplomat began an interesting and pleasant conversation concerning his observations in tho land of tho crescent sad the recent revolution which cost AllDl'L AX1X his throne. He was uot surprised at the transfer Of tho reins of power from tho bands of tho latter to thoso of Mund Ktlendl. A year boloro ha left Con Itaiitinoplo, about a year since, the probability of an Intrigue to bring about sucb a change wai freeiv talked of and regarded with general fUvor. Abdul Axis had long becu extremely unpopular, and was execrated by the people with vory little icur ot tho consequences of their blasphemy of their prophet's succosnir. "A fear and a hair ago," said Mr. Uoker, "I rnudo a trip through tbo Interior, and found this loeling even more Intensified and more openly expressed than in Constan tinople. The coudition of the country was fearlul, in dustries of all kinds prostrated, tho peoplo ground to the very dost by the heavy taxes, everything at a stand still, and everywboro Abdul Axis was bitterly eursed ss the author of ali their Ills " TIIS KKW St'LTAIV. Mr. Boker did net believe, however, that the situa tion would bo at all improved uuder tho new Sultan. The fault is in tbo s)?teraof uovernment and uot iu the man. Mursd had been adopted by tho uow Turk ish parly as a sort of figurehead or standard, around which to rally as a iieiluilo point, and personified sen. ttmeui to catch the national feeling. He had novor Im pressed him as a of special ability or strength of sharactor. At this point in the cunvcriaiiou Mr. Iioker's son, ulio had been an attache of the legation uuder his lather at Conslautioopie und St. Petersburg, catno in sad banded him an illus> rated paper couuuiliig a pic ture of the new Sulian. commending it us a good like Boss, iu which Mr. Boker, Sr., concurred. "1 liavo leva him frequently," said ha *'lt is like blin, tud expresses his ch iracter fully. It is anything but a strong fare. Weakness uud Irresolutiou aro plainly ?ppuieni there and I believe his roign will exhibit tho?e qualities. Ho lias this advantage over Abdul .Aziz, that his education has been more liberal. He speaks Kronch and understands more of Kuropenn goveru ineut, policy und social characteristics tliau did his predecessor, whose education and bent ot mind were strictly Oriental aud exclusive," TIIK *KW TlKKISU I'AKTY. A leading mind lu the rconi revolution was Mid hat PaOia, really the chiei of tho uuw T ark Mil party of uli.cti Murad Knetidi was tho ostensible representative Midhal Paiha was formerly lirmid Vizier, but at tempted some rolorms in the Sultan's private aSsits Which soon brought lain into disgrace. The iaei is, there is no chance lor the lleltan to effect reforms in tho Kovcrnnviit u at present ootllV tiiti'd, even If he po<s<'ss<-s the will aud ability to at lenipi lUcm. "Ihcre is no puMSbility of an improved condition until there is a radical change in the system ?I government and uatli the dultan takes an actual part in it, as be doca not now. Ho la really the head of tbo Mohasuinudan faith, the descendant of thu fro. pbet, a bort ot grand llauiu, who is ul.uost tie i dud and Ik altogether too sacrod a being to descend to the consideration of tho temporal alTalraot the nation ho ta supposed to govern. The Grand Vuler la tho actual ruler, and governs m tho servant of tho ciulian. The latter baa nothing to do with the details of government, and does not even pre side at the meetings of his Ministers, lie 1s thus in utter Ignorance of what 1a coitig on in bis domiuions. and It la easy to sco what abuses arc possible, in fact iiicvluble, under such a system. OOOO UOVCKNHKNT IS AX IMPOSSIBILITY under it. When any serious hitch occurs in the ma chinery tba Sultan simply changes his Grand Vizier. The new official comes into oflice, denounces the abuses and incompetency of hia predecos sor, i discharges his aateliuea. surrounds himw'if with hia own creatures and follows studiously in his dootsteps. Tbo wholo political, financial aud social system of Turkey is corrupt and rotten to tho core, and the country virtually bankrupt, nationally und indi vidually. Industry of all kinds la dead. Turkey Is now a purely agricultural country, Iter onco profitable manufactures having been destroyed by her injudicious treaties with European powers; but It Is impossible lor a wan to live honestly by agriculture. AH TO TQK SOTTAS, who have played so prominent a part in tho revolu tion, they are simply a religious caste?theological students, they might bo called, embracing all claMct and supported t'rorn tbe Immense revenues of tho mosques. Tbey are In preparation to enter tbo Mo hammedan priesthood, and their reputed sanctity gives them largo lnllaonce with tbe liuiatical populace. Acting with them were numbers of the lower order of priests, whose iniluenco is In propor tion to their ignorance and fanaticism. Their loader, Sheilc-ul-lalam, signifying tbo head or chief of Mohammedanism, la the spiritual head of tbe nution under the Sultan, as tho Grand Vizier is the temporal head, but like tbe latter is subject to removal by tho Sultan. UatUcd by tho soltas, und behind thorn by the minister*, however, Sheik-ul Islam wus ubio to first compcl the Sultan to radical concessions and Anally to demund his abdication. Such was the condition of public feclir.g that what with the universal discontent of the populace under their burdens, the desire of the uew Turkish purty (or a change of policy, the fanaticism of tho soltas aud the Intrigues of tho Ministry, tho revolution culmi nated through a thorough ripening process. Anything for a change, tbo old cry ol' tho tlcklo Grecian popu lace. was uttered by the Sultan's subjects with a de cided show ot reason, and TUB Tl'USING POINT was reached when the Sultan refused to assist tbe coin try m its desperate llnuncial strait out of bi? immense prlvaio resources, wrung as this money en from Impoverished labor.

BEFOBE THE COUP D'ETAT. Constantinople, May 23, 1876. So many reasons have combined to postpone tho so lotiou of tho Eastern question that even a prince without any royal virtue, like the present Sultan. Ab dul Axis, has L> ou enabled to hold the Incoherent lab ile of tbo OUuiaau Empire togothor dp to the present writing. But there are now signs that ail iho com ponent parts of It in Europe, at least, aro lolling irom his grasp. The Sultan has no money, which is the groat support of modern sovereigns, ana there Is no rosolato and capable man about him whom he can trust, and who Is interested in the maintenance of his dynasty. Moreover, ho is a coarse, vulgar-mindod old fellow, who has given personal otlence to several people whom he would have coucillatod if he had boen wise. Ue turned his back in an extreuioly insolent manner on the Emperor of Austria, when his brother sovereign paid him a neighborly visit at Constanti nople, and ho did many impertinent things during his travels in Europe. Among other lndiscrotions he went to loggerheads with peoplo who had been civil to the Khedive, op wnox iik is jealous; and the Khedive, haviug bought up half the b.uropcaa I crmanont officials who aro to be purchased, has raised up a host of enemies against tbo Sultau. The day dream ol that clever and vigorous race of bundlts, which was founded by Melicmot Aly, and which Is now seated on the throne of the Pbaroabs, is to transfer tbo scat o( their government to StambouL They havo done frroator things than that. The direct descendant ot a man w ho started in Ideas a podler In tobacco aad ended It as inastor of Egypt, may well bo expected to extend bis authority from tho banks of tho Nile to those of the liosphorus if he bends his mind to the task. It must not be forgotten that TUB KHEDIVE HAS ALMOST UNLIMITED COMMAND OF MONET. whereas tho Sultan has none. Again, some of tho ablest aud shrewdest men in Europe would befriend the Khedive and Join him In aoy government specula tions liiteiy to fill all tboir pocKots. Lot ns note well that tbo dethronement of the Sultan and the transfer of bis dominions to the Khedive would ploaso an iu iluite variety of peoplo. It would delight Turkish bondholders, because tho national debt of Turkey might bo easily paid if tho resources of the Ottoman Empire were udininisterod with even a doceut knowledge of finance, and tho Khcdlvo has much more than that. Ho Is, perhaps, tho best llusiidcr now living ou earth. H would pleaso tho Mobainmo dans ol Asia, who are very numerous; It would please tho Towers, because it would practlcally?maiiitain tho tlatu gun, which nil ol theiu desire to maintain; it would render tho tuttlemcni of the revolt on the Han. ube easy, because tho Kliedlve, become Sultan, would give any guarantees for good govei uiuent required ot him, and lie would bo able to perform his promises of amendment, which tho Sultan Is not able to perform. ir THE MULT AN IS KILLED in a popular or lu a religious tumult (a very probablo occurrence, by the way) there will he an eud of a trou blesome and ignorant mun, who has spent all his reign In tickling hi* appetite*. If ho survives Ills dcthroue , inent a moderate ]>ciision should be uiodo to suffice a I suusunllst who bus been lor years misapplying tho goods ol his people, and who lound untold wcslth too llttlii lor him. Mercy would giro him souic'.hiug; Jus tice would suggest that ho should livo on fifty cents a day and etrn them. TUB DYNASTY.

Neither Russia nor Austria want to enter on a policy | of annexation toward Turkey, nor do they waut a num I bnr of quarrelsome independent principalities like the I old ]ieliy Dukedoms of Italy and Germany upon their j Iroutler-:, each with a separate colli ago and hostile I custom houses tending to tho destruction ol all trade I up or down the Danube. Russia wants to sell hor corn, I her hide*, her tallow and her woo!. Austria wants a Ireo outlet for horses, sheep, swine, wioe, tohscco and i a hundred other articles of export.

For instance, Count Lambert, one of tho moat Intimate pergonal friends, favorites and cronies of tho Russian Cutar. hu an estate wbiea would bo quadrupled in value by the permanent pacifi cation of the Lower Danube, aud there is many a chum of the Kaiser aud fellow coumrymau of Couut Andrussy in exactly the same position.

Everything is po.siblo, aud it is, there fore, uot impossible that Russia aud Austria may bo forced by tho march of events to take part in the dts meiuboruient of Kuropeuu Turkey aud the creation of a now furkish Empire, with llugdad for its capital, but they will assuredly not do so it tbey can avoid it.

The Turkish Minister of Horeigu Affairs iuw ad dressed the following telegram to the Turkish Minis ter at Washington:? SUICIDE Will LB OK UNSOUND MIND. Constantinople, June 4, 1876. A sad event has Just painfully aifcctcd our august Sovereign and bis government. Abdul Aziz Khan, the late Sultan, who for some time past, unfortunately, gave evident signs of mental derangement, having locked him self up this morning in his apartments of the 1'aluce of Tcheragan, committed suicide by opening the veins of his arms with scissors, which he had concealed on his person. AN INQUIRY ORDERED. The Imperial government hastened to cause all the legal inquests (coustatlon) to be made, also a de tailed medical report, which will bo forwarded to you very soon. TBR funeral. All the Ministers, the high officers, both civil and military, will be present at the funeral of His Majesty, which will take place with the accustomed pomp and honors due to the deceased, whoso body will be laid in the Mausoleum of Sultan Mahinond. SKETCH OK THE LIKE AMD KXIOX Of AUDUL AZIZ. Tbo deceased Saltan was born la Constantinople on the l'Jth of February, 1830. lie was tbo secoud son of the cruel and capricious Mabmond II., the tlrst sover eign ol Turkey wbo weakened the fanatical spirit with I wbicb tbo Mussulmen opposed changes itt liur laws, ber military organization, fcc.; and be succeeded bis brother, tno Sultan Abdul Medjid, on tbo 26th of Juno, 1S61. Abdul-Aziz on ascending the tbrono lmitatod tbo conduct of bis predecessor at bis acccssluu in 1839. Ho introduced some relorma and anuouuced that bo would make many moro wbicb would put Turkey on an equality witb tbo Christian ualious ol Kurope. I.lko Abdul Medjid bo inherited Iroiu bis lather, Mulimond. the bellol that it would be a good thing to moileruizo Turkey. Malimoud was forced to form thut opinion by many bitter experience.?> in bis youih; but while bo was on the throne wurlare with Uus*m, tho Greeks, . England aud France, uqd the continual need that ho , had to waich aud crush tbo turbulent among his sub- i Jects, left huu but low opportunities to put his purpose . | Into full effort. Yet bo did many things which, wlnlo I they remlered his thruno a seat ol anxiety, took out of ! 1 the way of hi* succe.-sors the moil formidable obstruc- | tions to tho regeneration of the Ottoman Empire. Ho appointed ambassadors to other couuiries, bu watched tho actions of his otllclals, taking oil their i heads whou they violated justice, and, most important tact or all, ho overthrew the J militaries. Thus it will be seen that he laid tho foundation lor ? great work? for the rebuilding of a government*! structure with tho grandest proportions and the most perloct accesso ries. Had strung men followed bim, tho Ottoman Em pire would not uow bo lltly expressed by tho contemp tuous term, "The Sick Han of Europo." But Abdul | Medjid' followed?a Turk, bred In a harem; yet, with somo faint glimmerings of the facta that wero carried by his lather's experience; only half lignta, however, finally quenched in sloth aud euervat ; Ing vice. Abdul Mcdjld gained tho throno of his an cestors with dlfllculty. When his father died In 183V Mehemot All, Viceroy of Kgypt, was lu successful re bellion, and on Uie march to Constantinople, the Turkish navy was Insurgent, and tliero was a great party only waiting tho signal lu murder Mcdjld aud hail Mehoinet All as Sultan. At this critical time England aud the German governments interfered, and routed tho youthful sou of Mahtnoud on tho throne. Ho then, i moved partly by gratitude, purt.y by a falut porcep- i lion that Mussulman Intolerance must finally | give way to a civilization coming from tho West, promulgated a Hsttt-Sberlf, or bill of rights* guaranteeing equality boiore tho law to all his subjocts.

On tbo oue side of him wero the govern mollis of Western Kuropo guaranteeing the autonomy of hut government against Itusslu. Thoui bo felt bound to pleaso with bis administration. Hut on the other eile wero the unreasoning Mohammedans who fought against every measure by wblch he bound his government, aud the exisieuco of his country, to tho arms of England and France. Thus liarrasscd, ho took to sensual pleasures for relief from care, permitted corrupt politicians to rule Ilia Kingdom, und ended hit lilo lu physicul und menial prostration at the ago of tlilrty eight years. Abdul Aziz then came forward, hailed as a savior for Turkey, a houliug physician for "tho sick man." He had spent tho ihlrty-ono years of his lifo In rallrenienl, und had cultivated, It was raid, virtues unusual to Turkish sovereign.'. Ho was wise, people Laid, and icui|Hirale in tho u^o of pleasures. While bis oroiher lived Abdul Aziz showed no desire lo mingle In Slate ail.iirs, aud seemed content to study and practice ngriculturo ou his model farm, near Scutari. It was well for him, perhaps, that he was calm and couteut, olso his head might some morning have fallen from its support. Turknr.i rulers liavo never loved their lielrs greatly. Mustupha tried to kill Mahtnoud, but tho latter killed him und his chil dren-, and even the weak Abdul Mcdjld could havo been prevailed upon to sacrillce Aziz If ho had made himself conspicuous However, tho latler was discreet; ho saved his head and dually secured the ibroue.

The way that Abdul Aziz began bis administration was very cheering to tho European countries that kept Turkoy uuder ibem as a useful prvtifi. As soon as he hid warm?d his seat ho began tho work of ! reforming Bud of proicating. He romovod Kiga l'asha, the corrupt Minister of Finance; j ho punished oOlcials, against many of whom charges ; of peculation wero pending since the Crtuieud war; he reducod his own salary by $3,000,0110 (moro than half what it had boeo), and lie declared that ho would not Indulge in polygamy. At the lamo time lual he dis missed his brother's ser.iglio and ontounced that ho would still keep only ihe wife of nis youth he presented to his astonished Minislors a son, who h id been born lu lHi", and whom ho bad kept ??eluded and reported ( dead, on account of tbo rul? that tho male i*?ue of all ' members of the royal family except thai of lU* Sultan snd his sous must be killod us soon as born. This son, j Youssoaf-ed Din, Is me ouo In whoso favor Abdul , Asia has lately been reported to b*ve plotted lo change 1 tho custom of succession to Uie throne. Soon alter bit 1 succession the new Saltan issued an imperial "butt," addressed to the Graud Vizier, in which be expounded tbo line ut policy bo Intended to adopt. His Hi im iii tciitiuu wis, be said, to secure order iu tbo udmtuistra tiou und tlie liiiunci&l ufia.r* of tlie Empire, and, ut tbo same tune, to inamtjin ibo ducipltue uud effectiveness of botb land and sea lorcos. The bent of his foreign politic* would bo to strengthen tuoro uud n.ore tlw amicable rebu.ous existing between the Ottoman Em jurc uud her allies, and to preserve the greatest resj>ect to alrottdy rtl>ttu( treaties. "All niy pcopla," s-id nc, "who are of different re ligion* and different races shall Und In me the same Jusilcc. the muij soiicituJo and tbo ito? determination to secure their happiuest." Such declaration* u* these touched the kindliest chords in tbu heart* of Uriilsh Journaliau, and they were unanimous iu predicting that ABDUL A/1Z WOULD &AVS 'TH* TCiikJhH KHI'lli* from tbo decay with which it baa been long thri at- ! eued." At the aume tirno aouto of thein lound a wonderful ovidence of the rule of compen sation in the resuscitation of Turkey while the United States wero being destroyod. In the I.ondou Times a writer, tuovod by an almost similar comparison of the countries of tbo Kaat und West, said, with sorno truth, and in evident condemnation of lb* wur lor the Luton, tbut "ll would bo curious enough if tbo Otto man and Egyptian courts were to set an example of Unanciul wisdom at the moment ibo democratic Suites of America are throwing economy to tbo winds and plunging lieadlo. , into what must bo national debt unless the coiuaquence bo averted by national du bunesty." in reality the energetic way m which Abdul AzI* went to work gave every reason for tlio belief that his renlm would soon be regenerated. He began the or guutzution of a civil service and the education of i young men for it, and ut tbo end of two years he had established a bureaucracy which was under control and from which uepottsm and wire-pulling were thoroughly excluded. Extensive rond systems wero planned under bis direction, and some of them per fected; an imiuenso amount of public land was recov ered by drainage; a national bank was estab ishod. and restrictions wero placed upon usurer*. With tbo intent to fully develop all tne internal interests of the Eiupiro Abdul Aziz lortned a special administration of uiiuos und forest*, and luvlted lorelgn capitalists to arrungo with that body to work tboso depositories of immense weultb. At tbo same time lie gave his atten tion to the growth of cotton in Turkey. Years before this matter was discussed by tbe Turkish government, : which then applied to the American government for in- ! formation upou the subject; but the application I resulted in that government losing |40,0U0 and gaming not the slightest kuowledgo. Abdul Aziz, I knowing this, wanted no new American commls- j ?loner to explain the sublect of cotton cultivation. Ho ' sent to England for the gins, and begun tbe cultivation j of tbo plant. In every plan, though each w is meant I for tho elevation of his poople, he received strong op- I position from some class; yes, id some strange way no j sustained bluisoir under all the fauatlc condemnation, i Perhaps lor a timo ho was nerved by u fragment of old Mabuioud's obstinacy. At all events ho persevered in the attempt to rejuvenate und rcgeuerate his empire by introducing European civilization into it. In order to study thut civilization he made a Journey to Englaud. France und Austria, ulthough tho orthodox Mussulman pronounced loudly against tho trip; and when ho returned home ho still further in curred tho opposition of thoso fanatics by dccrociug now roiorm*. Ho allowed foreigners to hold real estato In hi* realm; bo established a high school alter tho trench model, and he enriched Constantinople by iodxduo skvkkal aciExriric institutions. He now begau to woary of bufTettng opposition, which had been made flrrcer by hi* latest reforms; but, beloro lapsing luto complete apathy, ho tried, In 1889, to aiuoud tho Judicial system of tho Empire, uud ordered the Supremo Court to draw up a civil code. At about tho same timo his troubles with tho Khedive of Egypt wero settled by tho sub iiiismnu of the lutter to hi* will, and Immediately Abdul Aziz gjve Inmsell to a course ol sensual pleasures only exceedod by tho debauchery ol his predecessor. Hence fonh ho paased hi* tiuio tn eating or drinking to ex cess or In tho society of lit* women, for he had put away hi* former belief iu monogamy.
