ALEXANDRIA, August 7.—Twenty
Bedouins were arrested while pilfering
at Bamleh last evening. The Khe
dive has written to Ragheb Pacha
that he considers it incumbent upon
his Government to notice, without
delay of its intention to indemnify the
sufferers from the disorders at Alexan
dria, without distinction of nationality,
in some manner compatible with the
resources of the country. The rebels
are entrenching between Aboukir and
Ramleb and on the western bank of
Mahmoudich canal close to the point
to which they were driven on Satur
day. A train full of rebels proceeded
to the Mahalla Junction this afternoon,
intended to destroy the railway. A
few rounds from forty-pounders in the
Ramleh lines compelled them to with
draw. The armored train has return
ed from Mahalla Junction without en
gaging the enemy, who about the
same time brought up some troops by
train from Kafrel Dwar, which were
busy entrenching and burying their I

LONDON, Aug. 7.—A despatch from
St. Petersburg says it is reported that
troops in Odessa and in the Caucasus
have receiyed instructions to hold them
selves in readiness to embark for Con
stantinople in the event of war between
England and Turkey, which from pres
ent indications seems imminent. It is
believed that the Czar would regard
such a conflict as an interposition of

pleasant feeling has beeu caused to
the Porte on account of the hoisting of
the English flag on the public build
ings when the British occupied Suez.
The Porte has beeu assured that the
raising of the flag has no significance.
The flag displayed was that of the
Consulate, and was hoisted in con
junction with the Egpytian flag. This
explanation is not considered satisfac
ft is understood that the Turkish
delegates will shortly present to the
Conference drafts of a proclamation
against Arabi Pacha and a military
convention with England. The Porte
has received intelligence that Arabi
Pacha has ordered the garrison
and population of Ismalia to retire to
Cairo.- Twenty-five Frenchmen will
have special escort. It is stated that
Arabi Pasha has ordered the garrisons
along the Suez Canal to avoid con
flicts with the British.
At the sitting of tho conference to
day the Turkish delegates accepted the
conditions proposed by the Powers
in their invitations to the Porte to in
tervene in Egypt. 9
With reference to the expected ac
ceptance by the Porte of the Military
Convention demanded by England,
there Is an unconfirmed rumor that Lord
Dufferin, the British Ambassador at
Constantinople, has been ordered, in
the event of the Porte's non-acceptance,
to quit Constantinople.
Said Pacha has promised Lord
Dufferin that the Porte will issue a
proclamation declaring Arabi Pacha
a rebel.

How a Quaker ficleiidvii lliui
A new method of dealing: with sere
nades was lately invented bv Mr. Fox,
t ol Stillbrook, lowa, whi?h reflects the
highest credit upon the gentleman's in
-1 genuity, and which promises to be a
! precedent of inestimable value Mr.
! Fox, when nearly sixty-four years old,
; married for the first time about a week
ago. He has resided in Stillbrook
1 for manv years, and b s reputation as a
man of shrewdness and integrity has
never been sullied. Nevertheless, Air.
Fox has never been regarded as a lib
eral man. He does not approve of the
use of ardent spirits as a beverage, and
he does not smoke. Hence he has
never been known to invite his fellow
citizens to drink or to take a cigar, and
has thus won a reputation for miserly
habits which not even the fact that he
gives liberally to all charities and
never turns a beggar away hungry
from his door, cannot alter. Finally,
Mr. Fox is a Quaker, and a firm be
liever in the doctrine of non-resistance.
When such a man ventured to take a
wife, the propriety of giving him a sere
nade was instantly perceived by the
young men of Stilibrook. 'The old
man won't stand nothing,' remarked
the leader of the young men, 'because
he's too mean, and he can't fight be
cause he's a Quaker. Boys, we'll just
go down and serenade him all night
and see how he likes it'
Now, Mr. Fox, although a non-re
sistant, had quietly made up his mind
that he would not suffer from any pro
longed serenade. He was addicted to
the cultivation of bees, and he had on
his premises twelve large beehives,
each one of which contained a thousand
or so of the largest and fiercest variety
of bee. On the evening of the expect
ed serenade Mr. Fox conveyed the
twelve beehives to the roof of his front
piazza, aud placed them very near the
edge thereof. He then provided bim
sell with a pole long enough to reach
from his front bedroom window to the
beehiyes, and with a sweet and placid
expression of countenance sat down to
await the serenaders.
In due time they arrived in force.
There were at least fifty of them, and,
grouping themselves in the frout yard
close to the house, they begrn their
uproar. Mr. Fox listened silently for
ten or fifteen minutes, and then appear
ed at the window, and, with a gesture,
induced the musicians to pause. He
told them that they must leave his
premises, and that if they refused they
would probably be sorry. With scorn
ful laughter the young men declined to
depart, and, drowning Mr. Fox's voice
with ironical cheers, they resumed. It
was then that Mr. Fox deftly upset his
twelve beehives with the aid of his
pole, and, closing his window, proceed
ed to go peacefully to bed, undismay
ed by the yells which suddenly arose
from his serenaders, and without seek
ing to know why they fled headlong
from his front yard.
'There wasn't one of them liees that
would let up on a man under three
mile,' remarked Mr. Fox next day.

Long reigns are rare in history, long
royal lives are rarer still. Princes
occupy one of the lowest ranges of
1 longevity. The air of courts is de
structive to health, nerve and vigor.
Lives which early corruption, luxuri
ous and effeminate habits, unchecked
passions and unceasing excitement do
not undermine, are frequently shorten
ed by consuming ambition and care,
warlike toil and peril, or the muder
ous hand of conspiracy. Among the
remarkable long reigns in history are
those of Uzziah of Judah (52 years),
Mithridates of Sapoy 11,
of Persia (71), Alfonso I, of Portugal
(73), Froderick 111, of Germany (52),
Christian IV, of Denmark (GO), Louis
XIY, of France, (72), George 111, of
England (59), Ferdinaud IV, of
Naples (05), and Pedro 11, of Brazil
(51 till now). But Uzziah was a
youth when placed upon the throne,
Mithridates a boy, Sapoy a n<rw-born
babe, Alfonso an iufant, Christian 11
years old, Louis 4, Ferdinand 8, and
Pedro 5, and of all the monarchs men
tioned only George 111 reached the
age of four score. Poland had one
King who reached the age of 88,
Stanislas Leszczynski; but he reigned
only five years, and survived his
throne fifty-six years, living in
quiet retirement. We must go back
to the days of antiquity to fiud Wil
liam I.'s peers in age, and the only
ones we discover are Hiero 11, of
Syracuse and Massinissa of Numidia,
both of whom ended their reign at
the age of about 90 years. The
reign of Harnesses 11, Pharaoh of
Egypt—the Sesotris of the Greeks—
is believed by some Egyptologists to
have lasted about 67 years, and his
life about 100, but others reduce both
his reign and days to normal pro
portions. Thus, no Emperor known
to history, no reigning King in Chris
tendom ever reached the age of
William I. Our age boasts of this
extraordinary life as it does of the
only Pontificate, that of Piux IX,
which exceeded the term of St. Peter.
And Berlin, which still often sees its
Emperor King on horseback, also saw
in 1859 Alexander Von Humboldt
give the last touches to his "Kosmos"
in his 90th year; Itaumer, in 1873,
ofticicated as professor in his 92d;
Field Marshall Wrangle, in 1877,
walked its streets in his 94th, and
Itanke, in 1871 issued the first part of

brace eighteen volumes, in his Bfith.

A Strange CUNC of I'allli Cure.
From Allegheny Mail, Aug. s.}
Charles Dysert who resides at
Rebecca street, called at the MAIL of
i lice this moruing to correct some i.iis
! statements which appeared iu a morn
ing paper to-day regarding the heal
ing of his wife. It was charged by
the attending phvsiciaus, Drs. John
and Thos. Mabon, that the sudden
j cure was due to excitement or the in
fluence of the mind over the body.
Mr. Dysert asserts that there was no
I excitement attending the cure and
i that his wife has continued to im-
I prove every day since, being now
able to walk around the house and go
;to her meals Before last Saturday
! she was unable to leave her U?d for
| seven months.
The lady who is twenty eight
years of age, told her own story to a
i reporter in the following language :
"Some seven mouihsagol was af
flicted with a complication of dis
eases and Kist the p.j'.ver of my limbs.
1 became very weak, and during all
that time up to last Saturday I had
been unable to get out of bed. I
was really paralyzed, Dr. Mabon
aud his son attended me regularly,
but they could do n thing to relieve
me, and I sinfully satisfied that they
did all iu their power and as much as
auy other physicians c juld have done.
I began losing all h< JH? of ever regain
ing my strength, but c ucluded to put
my case in the. bauds of tiod. I had
frequently be »rd of the miraculous
cures effected by Elder S. P. Young,
of Harmony, a meinbt r of the church
of God, and my husband sent for him.
He came last Saturday and ascertain
ing my faith he prated with me and
anointed me. He kept this up for
twenty minutes and after the expira- .
tion of that time be took hold of my i
hand and bade me rise. Duriug all j
this time I felt my strength returning
and making an effort, found myself on
my feet walking towards a chair iu I he |
center of the room. Elder Young led
me by the hand at the time, but soon ■
afterward I got up aud walked to the 1
dining room alone. Since then I have
had an appetite and find myself grow
ing stronger every day. My cure
was effected through my faith iu (»od
and the influence of Elder Young."
The husband testified to this wife's
long illness and miraculous cure, aud
knew nothing of the cure uutil several
hours after it occurred. "I had sent
for Elder Young at my wife's request,
but was absent when he effected the
cure, that evening when I came home
to 1113* great surprise I found mv wife
in the kitchen. You might imagine
my feelings. Since then she has been
gaining strength every day. and 1
firmly believe that she will entirely
recover. We have no further use for
medicines. Her miraculous cure 1 at
tribute to the anointment and prayer."
Mrs. Priscilla Hare, the landlady,
who was present when Mrs. Dysert
arose from her bod said, "I was never so
much astonished in my life as when 1
saw her get right up out of bed and
walk to the dining room. She had
been so weak that she was scarcely
able to sit upright. It is certainly a
remarkable case."
Why the World ProgreHMe*.
It was a favorite theory with
Buckle that the world's progress is not
made by the eminent goodness of men
or the distinguished meanness of men.
In other words, he believed tha*. good
ness did not create civilization, but
that the "forces of civilization'' caused
goodness and all of the world's pro
gress. He never become weary in
elaborating this opinion. It is the
rock on which he sets out to build
his "History of Civilization." All
through that "mighty fragment" in
every chapter of that great unfinished
book wc meet the idea. But nowhere
is it more forcibly and eloquently
stated than when he wrote: "The
gigantic crimes of Alexander or Na
poleon became, after a time, void of ef
fect, and the affairs of the world return
ed to their former level. This is the ebb
and flow of history, the perpetual flux
to which by the laws of our nature we
are subject. Above all this there is a
far higher movement; aud as the tide
rolls on, now advancing, now rececd
in<r, there is, amid its endless fluctua
tions, one thing, and one alone, which
endures forever. The actions of bad
men produce ouly temporary evil, the
actions of good men only temporary
good and eventually the good and
the evil altogether subside, are natural
ized by subsequent generations, ab
sorbed by the incessant movement of
future ages. But the discoveries of
great men never leave us; thev are
immortal ; they contain those eternal
truths which survive the shock of em
pires, outlive the struggle of rival
creeds, and witness the day of suc
cessive religions. All these have
their different measures and their
different standards; one set of
opinions for one age, another set
for another. They pass away like
a dream : they are as the fabric of a
vision, which leaves not a reck behind.
The discoveries of genius alone re
mains; it is to them we owe all
we now havo; they are for all ages
and for all times ; never young, and
never old, they bear the seed of their
own life; they flow on in a perennial
and undying stream ; they are essen
tially cumulative, and givng birth to
the additions which they subsequent
ly receive, they thus influence the
most distant posterity, and alter the
lapse of centuries produce more effect
than they were able to do even at the
moment of their promulgation."
A Russian proverb says: "Before
going to war pray once ; before going
to -sea pray twice; before getting
married pray three times.

The most clever of all spiders are
fouud on the shores of the Mediterra
nean. They not only live in silk-lined
tunnels in the loose soil, but actually
have doors to tLeir bouses. These
doors are made of layers of web and
earth, and shut down naturally by
their own weight, so as to be hidden
by the i;rass growing above them. Hut
if by chance they are disturbed, the
spider herself will often rush to the top
of the tube, and sticking her claws in
to the door will hold it down with all
her might as she presses her body
against the side of hep house. When
the spider would ensnare a victim, she
goes to the top of the bole or tunnel,
pushes open the door, fastens it back by
five tnreads to blades of jrrass near,
then spins a web round the open hole,
and goes back to her tunnel. When a
beetle or other insect is caught, the
spider darts, out pierces her victim with
her poison fangs, sucks its blood and
carries the carcass away some distance
from the bole. To guard against the
crawling insects that creep into thei
holes to attack them, these spider
make a second tunnel branching out of
the and build a door-way between
them, so that tbey cau retreat into the
passage in case of attack, aud setting
their back against the door, UafUe the
