In nearly a'* of the city churches yesterday the discourses turned upon the observance of Memorial Day. All the >sermons were good, and many of them very fine. They were mark ed by a tender reverence where they spoke of the cherished dead who laid down their lives on tlie field of honor. Nor were they unmind ful of the merits of the living, who. less fortu nate than their dead comrades, have returned to their homes crippled in limb and shattered in health. Year by year the observance of Me morial Day is taking a deeper hold upon the hearts of the people. Tlie custom of decorat ing with flowers tlie graves of our honored dead lias something about it which appeals strong ly to the feelings and imagination. Coming as the day does when the desolation of winter has just given way to the blossoms of spring, it seems with its floral tributes a fitting type of the resurrection and the life. IXDIA STREET. Rev. George W. Bicknell at India street Un iversalist church, preached a sermon on “Me morial Day and some of its lessons,” at his church before a large congregation, yesterday morning, takiug for his text a portion of the 28th verse of the 9th chapter of Esther, “These days should ho remembered and kept through out every generation. * * * nor the memorial of them perish.” He commenced with a reference to the cus tom of the ancients, to observo tlie anniversa ries of important events in their histories. Fasts and festivals were frequently occurring. In the present season of record and intelligence we cannot anticipate so much enthusiasm in the observance of the anniversay of any event as was manifest among the ancients; for it was these fasts and festivals by which they were kept in remembrance of by-gone events. Yet it is well for as to remember sonic occasions of the past. We are not to forget; because the lessons are important, and God designs that we shall profit from them. He referred to the approaching Memorial Day, allyiding tersely to the ready sacrifices, and the earnest, patriotic feelings of the early days of tlie war. He spoke of the devotion of tlie army—contending that it was principle for which the soldiers enlisted and fought. All creeds and political lines forgotten. The devo tion of the fallen should call fortli our warmest gratitude The speaker did not attempt any de fence of the memorial commemoration.' He believed it right, bringing to mind the cost of our blessings, and hence they were rendered more valuable. While he did not, as a princi ple, believe in war, he did in being prepared for it through the influences of a live patriotism. He did not believe the continued observance of tlie day kept alive antagonisms, because there was no anger in tlie soldier’s breast. The war was not thus waged. But he believed it would have a tendency to strengthen the bond of union between the North and the South. He closed witli a brief allusion to some of the teachings of the hour. The fallen soldier’s con secration should be ours in the higher relations of life. We are to eulist in the Grand Army of which Christ is Captain, and even as the sol dier pressed forward, so are wo wherever Christ leads. We cannot buy exemption; we are to do our duty individually. Life, being active, we must be faithful, even as the blood of tlie noble soldier testifies to his faithfulness. Then we may- leave our children and our children’s chil dren precious blessings, and receive indue tinre, in the beautiful land above, the rewards which are due to the brave, the true and the victori ous. The music was excellent. CONGRESS square UNIVERSALIS!. Post Bosworth, G, A. R., accepted the kind invitation of the society to attend service in a body, and after a beautiful introductory service, listened to an eloquent and practical sermon by the pastor, Rev. W. E. Gibbs, based on I Mac cabees, xv, 28; Nicanor lay dead in his harness. The speaker briefly alluded to the death of the warrior in battle array, and the respect the world has always had for men of valor, “Dead on the Held of battle”—how much it means, as we recall the self devotion and steadfast hero ism of tlie thousands that have strewn the world’s battle-fields. Generally speaking, wars had been useless, but honor, steadfastuess and courage are only virtues. In these days of back pay and organized theft, the illustrious examples of self-sacrifice and manly generous courage, arc worthy to be remembered. The tendeucy of the time is to raid upon the money bags—to obtain wealtli in the shortest time, by the most unqestionable ways, dwarfing man hood into mero selfishness. Ear better to die with the harness of industry on, than to rust out in ease purchased by ill gotten gains. Suc cess is not ease, it is not wealth, it docs not come in that way,—but by the uprighness of righteous industry. The lesson of the war worn veteran who died with the harness on, teaches that all that is worthy must be attained by l'fe-loug and persistent struggles. God meant that all men should work—that no posi tion is free of responsibility. The world is a battle-field, and every man has a part iu the great strife. True men cannot escape the re sponsibility. Only cowards will skulk behind the shadow of crime. All good men should feel that they are life long soldiers|for the right. There are opportunities to do good on all sides It is the life work of Christian men to do good, that when they die. like Nicanor and the men who gave their lives to the country, they fall with their harness on. In conclusion he said:“As we stand by the graves of these comrades who have fought and passed on, the memory of their valorous deeds, should give us courage to pres s onto the ac knowleaement of the greatest victory attainable by human effort—the conquest of evil. Come in what shape it may, we have only need to bo faithful to our own best convictions to resist the shock of onset and send the ranks of wrong along from our front. And if we fall, while still we struggle, if we have not removed the harness which made known the side on • which wc fought, we need not be ashamed to die. A good cause, faithfully supported, makes even death glorious. The memory of such as do not falter in their allegiance to righteousness is fragrant always with holy thought and heav enward desire. Be ye faithful unto death and I will give you the crown of life, is the promise. Worthy of all acceptance is the reward; worthy the cause for whose sake it is offered. Let no soldier hold back the service it re quires. The great captain of salvation com mands us forward,and forward let the order be, until the power of evil be destroyed, the reign of righteousness secured. Forward, all along the line, Jesus commands, it is ours to obey.” FIRST PARISH. Rev. Dr. Hill delivered a strong and meaty discourse from Nahum I, 3. The sermon was in a measure a discussion of the old problem of the origin of evil. He commented severely upon the recently spoken protest of a distin guished divine against the idea that God’s providence was visible in the salvation of the survivors of the ill-fated “Atlantic.” The di vine mentioned coni ended that if God’s provi dence had been at work all would have been saved. Dr. Hill saw the hand of God in the drowning and in the rescue. The Almighty, for his own wise purposes, sees fit sometimes to work good by menus of death and suffering. This was manifested in our late war, when thousands of men and millions of treasure were sacrificed that the uation might live. The result was a purification of the moral atmos phere, much as a storm clears the physical The speaker then touched upon Memorial Day, and dwelt upon the debt which we owe to our brave defenders, both living and dead. Al luding to the words of his text, he said that God was seen in the flowers as well as in the whirlwind. PINE STREET M. E CHURCH. At Pine street church the altar was decorated with flowers. Rev. D. H. Hannaburgh deliv ered a very interesting discourse from Joshua xxiv: 3. He began by saying that Joshua clos ed his eventful life by an act of faith. He was buried in Phechem, and ever since that spot has been sacred ground. All through the Bible we find great attention is paid to the graves of the sacred dead. They are considered sacred still; they are just as sacred to-day to those that be held them as ever. We of the present genera, tion have our consecrated places, not only in this city, but all over the country. The speaker then referred to those who had fallen, the graves of whom would not be decorated duriog the coming week, He gave a vivid description of the burial of comrades on the battle-field. Do you suppose that these fallen heroes have not a monument raised to their memories? Thus friends will remember them though they cannot decorate their graves. The result of the war showed that we can d-fend the flag, and defend those who fought uuder it. But to do this it was necessary that a sacrifice should be made, and that sacrifice is what we are to coinmemo ate on the coming week. Every good thing that a nation has must be bought with blood. Just so in the case of Christ’s coinin''- he gave his life to save a world from sin He was wil ling to sacrifice himself for sinners, anil the most effectual way to bring sinners to Christ is to show them the sacrificing spirit that he man ifested. feo with those that we are to pay re sptet to in the coming week, they were willing to give their lives for their country. Let us then in the coming week wreath garlands around tno grave of the fallen hero, and think of the bright garlands that they wreathed for their country. STATE STREET CHURCH. At State Street Church in the morning, Rev. E. Y. Hiricks, the pastor, in a beautiTlul dis course on the words found in the 11th and 12th verses of the second chapter of Soloman’s Song —in which he deduced the lessons tube a dream from nature—most felicitously alluded to the ceremony of of the comiDg Decoration Day, in which the graves of our noble heroes would he garlanded, and their memories and deeds held precious. FREE STREET CHURCH. In the evening, Rev. Dr. Small preached a very able discourse, replete with home truths putina most practical manner and forced homo witli eloquent appeal, to the members of the Grand Army. His text was 1st Corinth ians, 16: 13. “Quit yourselves like men; he stroug.” He said it should be tho purpose of those who propose to honor the nation’s dead to strive to pay them tho titest honor possible. Their great sacrifice saved the nation. %Ve might build monuments; hut if we did this and then wont on to furget the inestimable gift of country they had vouchsafed to us, our hom age would be mockery. Mr. Small then pro ceeded to show three ways in which we could honor the nation’s dead: First, by a continual manly contest against evil and temptation; by a life of integrity, by a struggle against selfish ness at all times. In illustration of the spirit of selfishness he said there were men who had made a fortune out of (he war who could not give a dollar for a hospital, or a wreath for a soldier’s grave. Next to honor tho country’s dead we should quit ourselves like men. This is not done b\ throwing one’s self away rashly, not by acting the life of the bully, not in falling in with the popular current, not by dashing feats on rare occasions, but by continually following the dic tates of the right at whatever consequenco. The next point considered was how to be suc cessful in our efforts to quit ourselves like men. First, be sure you are in the right, then be zealous. In this connection he spoke of the power of association. To-day greedy men in Portland defy public opinion and send out of their dens besotted drunken men to lie in filth upon our streets a stench in our nostrils and a source of pollution to the young. If tbe good and the pure and the manly of the city would in some way unite and say, no more of this, there would be an end to it. Above all things, to quit your selves like men, you must enlist under the ban ner of Jesus. His is the most reliable tbe only invinciable strength. The sermon was full of vivid illustrations, manly in utterance and elicited the earnest at tention of a crowded house. OTHER CHURCHES. At the Cathedral of the Conception, Bishop Bacon spoke feelingly of tbe debt we owe to tbe holy dead, who gave their lives to their country, and urged upon his flock the propriety of joining in the decoration of tbe graves at Calvarv Cemetery. At Chestnut Street Church, tbe new pastor. Rev. Mr. Jones, delivered a strong and fervid address, abounding in many fine thoughts upon tbe duty which we owe to the memory of our dead soldiers whs so freely gave up their lives for their country. At High street church Rev Mr. Feun preached a sermon richly freighted with thought, the text of which was taken from the sublime imagery of tile book of Job, He paid an eloquent and glowing tribute to tho dead soldiers of the republic. Some of his par ishioners, as will be seen by the card elsewhere, have united in a request for its publication, and we are in hopes to give it to the readers of the Press in a day or two. In the other churches of this city allusion was very generally made to Memorial Day. Casco Manufacturing Company. — This corporation which was incorporated by a recent act of the Legislature, authorizing Andrew Spring, W. F. Milliken, William Dei ring, J. S. Ricker, H. J. Libby; C,P. Kimball, S. M. Mil liken, J. B. Libby, H. N. Jose, Walter Wells, Israel Washburn, Jr., and W. S. Dana, to man ufacture cotton goods with a capital of 8750,000, held its first meeting for the purpose of organi zation, at the banking house of J. B. Brown & Sons, Thursday afternoon. Hon. I. Washburn, Jr., was chosen chair man, and Philip Henry Brown, Esq., clerk,and the latter duly sworn. It was voted to accept the charter, and Hons. J. B. Brown and Jacob McLellan, W. W. Thomas, Jr..Esq., Geo. E. B. Jackson, Hon. S. E. Spring and Philip Henry Brown, Esq., were added to the corporators The clerk was ordered to present a petition to the city government for exemption from taxa tion. It is understood that this company.if it obtain favorable action from the city authorities in re gard to exemption from taxation, purpose to start, as speedily as possible, a manufactory of cotton yarns to the capacity of about 10,000 spindles,—with the intention of largely increas ing their works at some future time, if the ex periment is successful. Maine Central Railroad.—A settlement was reached Friday in the prospective suit against the Maine Central Railroad. Messrs. Fogg, Burrill, Totman and others of Kendall’s Mills recently brought a bill in equity against the Maine Central, to prevent them frun chang ing the location of their road at Kendall’s Mills. The Maine Central Company proposed to discontinue their way over the old bridge, which was destroyed, and thus not cross the river, but keep on the east Bide the whole way, thus leaving Kendall’s Mills to depend on the Skowhegau line. It is new understood that those who bring the bill in equity, aud the Ken dall’s Mills people generally, ha-e agreed to an nul their action if the Maine Central will make free the toll bridge at that place at a cost of 810,000, aud it is said that the Maine Central has acceded to those terms. Portland Dry Dock Company.—This Com pany have had upon their ways for the year ending May 1st 1873, 30 schoouers, 1G brigs, 11 barks, 15 steamers and 4 tow boats. Two of the barks were taken in loadod. Any vessel can go into this dock without discharging her cargo, whieh is an expense saved to the vessel. The rates of oharges at this dock are the same the year round, although the expense of keep ing the docks in good condition is necessarily greater in the winter months, than in the sum mer. The rates are less than at Boston as shown by the Boston cards. Vessels 400 feet long and drawing 20 feet of water can enter this docic. Ship owners have the privilege of employing their own caulkers and carpenters if desired. During the past year the Company have expeuded over 81300 in improvements and machinery. Accident.—Saturday evening as Mr. M. E. Haskell, of the firm of Lord, Haskell & Co., was riding on the Western Promenade, his team became entangled with several other teams. He was driving quite fast, aud as he swerved one side to avoid the press his carriage struck against a tree, hurling him over his horse’s head several feet. No bones were broken but the. shock was a very severe one, and at one time serious iuterual injuries were feared, as Mr. Haskell freely vomited blosd. Dr. T. A. Foster was called aud is now in attendance on the injured man. The symptoms of the case are now very favorable and no permanent in jury is looked forward to. We have received the following communica tion for which we gladly make room: Portland, May 25, 1873. Rev. IFm. II Fenn, Dear Pastor:—We, the members of yonr church ana parish, would respectfully request a copy of your sermon preached this mormug, in regard to the observance of Memorial Day and its duties, for publication, believing ihat its in fluence in a larger field will be for good.

Casco Bay Expedition.—The U S. steam tug Blue Light is beiug fitted out at the Wash ington Navy Yard for the use of Prof. Baird, U. S.

The expedition is to investi gate the causes of the decrease of edible fish> and it will be necessary to thoroughly investi gate the feeding grounds by dredging opera tions, as the cause of the decrease is in a meas ure dependant upon the fish feed. The head quarters of the expedition will he on Peak’s Island. Police Notes.—Professional jealousy be tween two private watchmen on Commercial street culminated in an assault Saturday night. The aggressor, named John Kelley, was ar rested. Two rather mild drunks and an affray made up the slate at the police station Saturday night. The affray was on Fore street, and consisted of an interchange of fisticuffs. Yes terday there were but two arrests, both for drunkenness. Warm weather appears to wilt immorality. Deceased.—Policeman George H. Cammett died about air o’clock last evening, after a lin gering illness of many weeks. Mr. Cammett bad been on the police force six years and al ways proved himself a capable and vigilant officer. He leaves a wife and several children. Ferry Villngc. The Union Brass Band gave a very pleasing concert Friday evening, They have lately pro vided themselves with a now and handsome uniform. We understand that a boy by the name of Woodbury got into an an altercation with a boy by the name of White, and struck at him with a dull pocket knife, leaving a scratch half way round his arm. Had the knife been sharp the chances are that the wound would have proved fatal. Last Saturday evening two converts of Geo. Prancis Train disturbed tbo Washingtonian meeting. Their object seems to be to break down all laws and resolve governments hack into anarchy. Tlie Ma'.ne Liquor law now claims their attention aud in their crazy frenzy t ty assert that bad a temperance law never en put upon our State, all men to-day would e so or and industrious, our prisons aud peni tent.ar.es would be among the things of the. past, wretchedness and misery would be un known except m history, and men would stand from H8 Pr r f ? y ab' wh"n came forth from the band of the.r Creator.

A Nice man for Chief of Police. The new Chief of Police, Matsell, is the same man who was chief under Fernando Wood, when the metropolitan police was first formed. He was very prominent at that time, in the riotous efforts to thwart the action of the author ities in placing the metropolitan force in power, and it was at that time, June, 1857, when the Seventh Regiment was enroute on its trip to Boston, that it was ordered to halt on its march and protect the city hall from threatened riot of the old police under Matsell. He assumed his new position as chief to-day, and the captains of the stations waited on him for orders. Suspensions in the Cumber Business— 9,000,000 CinbiliticB. Troy, N.

Nich ols & Co., of Albany, the Williamsbiug mill and lumber company, Chambers & Co., of Cleveland, Watson & Twitchell of Cliicogo, Parton & Spenc'T of Elizabeth, and It. A. Loveland of Chicago. All are extensive dealers in lumber. The Cumber Failure. New York, May 25.—Russell W. Adams one of themembers of the lumber combination’ tells the Times that all os the firms in the com bination are insolvent. Their combination of means is double or three times the amount of th“ir liabilities, and they possess large quanti ties of lumber which lies in Canada and in mills in Michigan and New York State. The firms in this city are most heavily involved, ex cepting White & Co., of Albany, and Page & Co , of Oswego. All the firms are well estab lished and doing a good business of $100,000 a year each. The World says that terms upon which lead ing creditors, all in New Yoik, have agreed, and which they recommend smaller creditors to accept, are as follows: Absolute extension for six months and then new paper for 100 cents and interest, upoa which, ten cents, five to be paid every thirty or sixty days, unti1 all is paid. The World adds: It is to be feared many persons will be ruined by the reclamations made upon them for drafts drawn on the sus pended firms against consignments of lumber from many places in tho interior and Canada.

The consultation between the Cabinet and the Civil Service Board lasted until two o.clock during which a large number of. amendments aud modifications to the civil service rules were suggested, which will be acted upon by the Board.

Louisiana Affairs. The Attorney General this morning received a despatch stating that the Supreme Court of Louisiana has just decided two cases of contest for office under the intrusion act and in both cases the legality of the officers holding under the Kellogg government was sustained. The telegram also said that the opposition in Louisiana is dissatisfied with Senator Carpen ter’s speech. more of the Civil Service. It is ascertained from those having the best means of information, that the Advisory Board at present in session, will encourage the growth and thus render more efficient the contemplated reform. They believe after their consultation with the President and members of the Cabi net on Saturday, that the administration isde termined to give the support needed. It was generally agreed that some modifications are demanded of the results of experience, by which, while the changes in detail will be slight, the main features and scope will re main not only unimpaired but will beinvigored. The Board will, in the course of a few days, complete the work of revision, when the changes will be made public. Assurance is given that th* y will contain nothing from which its truest friends will dissent, while it is believed that the greatest need is a better in structed and more discriminating public opin ion on the subject.

Eiftht Persons Known lo Ilnvc been Killed. Washington, Iowa, May 24. — Additional particulars of tbe tornado makes tbe damage a great deal more than heretofore reported. Six more persons have died, making eight iu all. There are many others whose lives are despair ed of. These are all reported within six or eight miles on the line of the storm. To what extent the storm raged in other parts of the county is not yet learned. An enormous amount of property lias been destroyed. It is impossible to describe the scene after the storm passed It resembled a long traci of country that had been suddenly flooded and everything carried away; and as if tbe water had suddenly fallen and left everything iu complete ruin. The force of the storm was such, that nothing resisted it. Heavy objects were carried through the air and thrown to the ground with such violence as to halt imbed them in tbe earth. Wagons and farm imple ments of allkiuds were strewn all around; even the spokes were broken out of the wagon wheels. A hog was found pierced through and pinned to the ground by a spike of timber two by four inches. Over 1000 persons from this place visited ihe scene yesterday, and rendered all the assistance in their power to tbe sufferers. A telegram from Sigourney states that at Lancaster every house but one w as entirely de stroyed, but no one is reported killed, though many were seriously hurt. iVIorc Indian Troubles. St. Louis, May 24.—A special from Fort Sill, Indian Territory, states that a great excitement prevails among tbe Wachita Indians, on ac count of the murder of their principal chief Isodawah, by Osages recently. The chief was out bunting alone, and next morning his head less body was found with a bullet bole through it, and one hundred yards distant his scalped head was found. It is believed the Wachitas aud their allies will immediately take the war path against the Osages, in spite of all efforts to restrain them. The deceased chief was a great friend of the whites. Seventeen years ago one of his warriors killed a sentry at Fort Arbuckle, and the chief promptly brought the assassin’s head to the fort. The Tcxau Harder. Brownsville, Texas, May 24.—To-day’s “Sentinel”in mentioning the various cattle rob beries committed this month by armed Mexi cans, places the number stolen and crossed into Mexico within a radius of sixty miles of this city, at not less than 1000 head ; while higher up the river, a proportionate number has been driven across the frontier. Tne reported raid of Col. McKenzie into the Kickapoo camp in Mexico, and the punishment of md’ans. has caused very general satisfaction here, and will tend to lesson tbe depredations, if this policy is carried out. The Atlantic Wreck. New York, May 24.—A Halifax letter says that 428 bodies have been recovered from the wreck of the Atlantic, leaving 118 passengers unaccounted for. Nearly a dozen bodies of the lost cabin passengers are still missing, and al though all the staterooms have not been exam ined by the divers, it is not thought any bodies will be found in them when entered,as the pas sengers are believed to have escaped to the deck when informed of the pending danger after the vessel struck. The Cattle-Stealing Kickapoos. New York, May 24.—A Washington special states that the Mexican miuister says that nearly all the cattle stealing on the Texas bor der has been done by the Kickapoo Indians, and negotiations have long been pending by both governments to induce that tribe to go on their n* ^rvation. He anticipates no trouble bctweotJ’Tfc-) two countries from the reee'nt raid of Col. McKenzie, having no doubt of au ami cable settlement of the affiair. 91ETEOKOLODICAL.

The Masses Shont Vive la Thiers. Ho Apprehension of an Onibrenk-Com mendable Conduct of the Radicnls. Versailles, May 24.—Tlie Assembly reas sembled at 2 o’c.ock this afternoon, and after an energetic speech by Casimer Perier, Minister of the Interior, refused by a vote of 365 against 348, a motion to proceed with the order of the day emanating from the Left and supported by the government. An order of the day propos ed by the Right, declaring that the present form of government was not under discussion and regretting that the reconstruction of tho minis try did not afford conservative guarantees was then ^adopted, by a vote of 360 against 314. Upon" the announcement of the reuslt of the last vote M. Baragnon, member of the Right, said that tho supreme interests of the country required that thegovernment should not remain silent. His remarks were received with noisy protestation by the Left. When the tumult subsided, Baragnon proposed a night sitting. M. Dufaure, Minister of Justice, ascended the tribune and declared that France would not remain a moment without a government not withstanding the vote first cast. “There exists,” he said, “a President and the Republic. The ministers will answer for the maintenance of order. They would consult with the Presi dent and agree to a night session.” Tho Left shouted, “Why will the government thus set Europe aud posterity the example of this mon strous ingratitude?” The Right insisted that the government should promptly communicate its decision to the As sembly. After further debate, which was conducted amidst the greatest excitement, it was decided to have a uigbt session and a recess was taken until evening. Versailles, May 24—Evening.—The Assem bly reassembled at 8 p. m. M. Dufaure, the Minister of Justice, announced that the minis ters had tendered their resignations to M. Thiers who had accepted them. M, Dufaure then handed to M. Buffet, Presi dent of the Assembly, a message from ’ Presi dent Thiers aunouncingthat he delivers back to the Assembly the high functions which had been conferred upon him. The readiug of tho message produced a profou ad sensation in the chamber. Den Charigarnier and Duke De Broylie mov ed that the Assembly immediately appoint a successor to M. Thiers. This motion caused a terrible uproar. Th* Left moved that the res ignation of President Thiers should not he ac cepted. The motion was rejected by 368 against 339. The resignation of President Tliiers was then accepted, f.l. Buffet fruitlessly attempted to eulogize M. Thiers. The members of the Left endeavored to secure an adjournment of tho election of a successor to M. Thiers, hut the Right insisted upon choosing a President of the Republic immediately. A vote was then taken aud resulted in the election of Marshal McMahon who received 390 votes. The depu ties of the Left abstained from voting. A committee was then appointed to wait up on Marshal McMahon and inform him that be had been elected President of the Republic.— The committee was headed by M. Butfet, who upon retiring temporarily handed overtlic pres idency of the Assembly to M. Goulard. Upon the return of the committee to the Assembly. M.

The Khivan War. Loxdox, May 2d.—[N. Y. Herald Special].— Tlio following is telegraphed from Central Asia. “I have joined the envovs of the Kban of Khi va, in the Ki/ilkun desert oil the way from fort No. 1 to Tawdia, 300 miles west of Y'aslikend. Nicholas Comtantinovitcii and Gen. Koffmann are waiting to see them.” These envoys went to fort No. 1 to accept any terms for the Khan, the Russian military pow ers propose. They have missed Gen. Kauff man there, hut seem now to understand that the Grand Duke and General were not pushing on, hut waiting theircoming to negotiate. Al though the commanders may thus wait, it is doubtful if there will he any interruption of the movement of the troops, since to secure the fall of Khiva, it appears only their presence be fore it is necessary. Dissension reigns there. The Khan is at war with two brothers, and these only await tlie arrival of the Russians to surrender the place. Yellow Fever at naatevidia.
