NEW YORK CITY.
ray Telegraph to the Pittsburgh Gazette.]
NEW Yonx, September 2, 1868.
A correspondence took place recently..
between Mr. Seward and Lord Stanley,
through the medium of Mr. Moran, Amer
'lean Charge d'Affitira at London, and Mr.
Thornton, the. British En koy at Washing
ton, on the subject of the Fenlan prisoners,
Warren and Costello, who are naturalized
citizens of thel i nl ited States. T..° c-rresl
pondenco has been published in full in the
London journals, but the main - - points are
simply these :.Mr. Seward writ. a to Mr.
Moran a request to read the letter to Lord
Stanley, to the effectthat the House of Rep
reseittat:ves ef the United States-had pass
ed a resolution requesting the President td
take Such measures as shall appear proper
to seenre the'release from imprisonment of
Mesrirs. Warren and C, steno, convicted sad
sentenced in Great Britain for words and
amtv-ai , oken land done in this country, by
ignoring our naturalization- laws, and to
take such other measures as will secure their
return'to our flag, with such ceremonies as
areappropriate to the occasion; and he,
therefore; urges the unconditional release
of these - prisoners. "Lord Stanley, in his
reply, through Mr Thompson, says:
"As regards the impthooment of Messrs.
Warren and Costello, I have to point to you
that the allegation on which Mr. Seward's
request for their release is founded, viz:
that they Were convicted - and sentenced
for words spOken and acts committed in the
United States, rests on a total misconcep
tion of the facts in the case, These prison.'
ers were convicted of treason and felony,
at the Commission Court for the county of
Dublin; *held in October last. The
most prominent overt act insisted
upon and proved against them be
ing, that they come to Ireland and
cruised along the coast with intent to effect
a landing of men and arms in Ireland, and
in order to raise an insurrection against the
Queen. The evidence adduced against
these prisoners in the course of the teal of
words spoken and acts committed by them
in the United States, was given in strict
accordance with the rules of war, as part
of the testimony connecting them with a
Fenian conspiracy which had-existed in the
county of Dublin, in which county the
Commission Court sat, and which conspir
acy had for its object the subversion of Her
Majesty's authority and the establ.shment
of a republic in Ireland." ,
-A letter from Syria in the Post says the
Turks have lately committed another act
of vanda ism in Crete, which should not
escape the notice of civilized Europe and
America. The olive trees, heavy with the
crop which promised to sustain the half
starved Chrlatians of.the heroic, Isle, have
been entirely destroyed, that the women
and children may be forced by famine to
yield to , the Ottoman power. The Com
mander-ip-Chief has also issued an order
for the heads of families to bring back to
Crete all refugees under penalty of confis
cation of their lands and effects.

Enginnd aid the Chinese Treaty
with Ulu t d States—lndications
of the li!reservation of reacein
(I.ly Telegraph to the Plttsburgh Gazeg.a:
LosnoN, September 2: —The Times to-day •
(1cl:otos its loading column to a long ana- •
lysis of the treaty recently concluded by
the United Stakes ilovernment• with the
'Farmer of Chin:4 through the Embassy
now visiting - Amerlca with Mr. Burlingame
at' its head. ,The Til7LcS says England is
more interested in China than any other
power. Her commerce with that country
is larger, and since the treaty of Pekin her
relations with its - GoVernment have been \,
more friendly. She assisted the Impe; ial
authorities in putting down the Taeping
rebellion. England_ is the proper power
for China to employ as a medium for r&
vising her treaties with other nations; but
this treaty with the United States, aiming
to restore the oldexclusive policy, has been
rightly entrusted to the manipulation of for.
.eigh counselors;Who advise what is impossi
ble, the restoration of a retrograde system.
The writer then proceeds to dissect one by
one the articles of, the new treaty. He calls
attention to the fact that china obtains .no
concession from the United States. On the
other hand, the latter gains a monopoly of
railway and telegraph Improvements. This
is of itself a sufficient objection to
the treaty. Yet the question- may
be asked, is it wise for England
to MultiplyhFr differences With America on
such ;pounds as these? The article con
cludes as follows: We are bound to say,
with conviction; that there is more under
neath these negotiations than appears on
their surface. They bear distinct traces of
foreign - inspiration. It is our belief_ that
this mission-did not originate with the Cla;
- nese govetirment. The idea of enlisting
Mr. Burlingame as a recruit for the furth
ering of Chinese ends, so far from being
spontaneous, emanated from a foreign brain
and was suggested by the departure
from China of the Arnerican-Ministsr,wh!ch
was drawing near at the time the titan was
formed. No doubt •• the proposition was
joyfully welconied by the Ministers of the
elli,:ese Emperor, who, having onaobject
at heart, gave one instruction to their Ain
baafadors, viz.:•Stop all progress. As for
the rest, ca. to bianclie. Say and do what
you please, this treaty, concerted by the
Embassy on their pas-sago from China to
San Francisco, Is the result now before us.

Daniels, asked for a card. Mrs. Daniels:
"Ileve you lost a son, Madam, named Wil

in the affinnatiye. "He is now present
with you, and requests me to `say that you
must not worry yourself, as Jour business

woman was paralyzed ' with astonishment.
"Yottr husband, also," continued the medi
um, "who was lately, killed on the railroad,
is here in company with your son." The
pooristapefied woman was borne half un

was killed five months ago on a railroad,"

Shooting Affray in Robinson Township—
Probable Homicide--The Perpetrators
A shooting affray occurred in Robinson
township yesterday morning, resulting in
the serious if not fatal injury of a farmer
named David Ross, one of the oldest-resi
dents of the township. It seems that the
dnjured man had been in town during Mo
nday, and came home in the evening in an
intoxicated condition. Shortly, after his
arrival he became engaged in an alterca
tion with an employe, s. young man named
David Tease, beating him in an unmerciful
manner. The at:Ur was finally settled and
the disturbanc.- quieted down for the even
ing. The next morning, - Ross meeting
his victim, again commenced the qnarrel,
when Tease drew a revolver and .artd, the
shot taking effect in the bieast of his assail
ant, producing injuries which will probably
_provclatal: Sew after being shot Ross
was conveyed to his residence and a physi
cian summoned, Tease in the meantime
surrendering himself to the authorities to
await the result. Dr. Dicxson, from this
city, aided by tho resident physician in
Mansfield, made an examination 'of the
wound and pronounced the case hopeless.
Tease was brought to the city yesterday
and committed to 'jail by Alderman Mc-
Masters In defaultof $l,OOO bail, on a charge
of felonious tumult and battery with intent
to kill. ''He is about nineteen years Of age,
and states that he acted only in self de
fence, after every other method had failed.
The injured man at last accounts was liv
ing,_but no hopes of his recterery were en

Dr. Wm. Reeves, Pre-idedt of the Confer
ence, delivered a 'ermon on the Deacon
ship, from the I Tim. 3. 8, 13, making the
I. The Order of deacon in the primitive
Church Vas not merely financial but also
spiritual: After noticing some opinions on
the subject, and showing their errors, &c.,
he proceeded , to define the office, as the
lowest ecclesiastical 1 office in' the Church;
quoting Bible texts and. statements of the
early fathers and lexicon definitions, both
ancient and modern. Next the Doctor
noticed the origin and object of the order of
deacon, claiming that it was brought from
the Jewish Church, and proving it from
the, Bible and theological writers, and as
having existed from the beginning of the
Christian Church, and that its object was
the spiritual service and edification of the
The Doctor insisted that there were two
orders of Ministers in the apostolic church,
viz: Deacons and Elders, and that the bible
and church history clearly prove it.
