Sl.-Tne TurkUh legation has received from' the- Sublime Porre the following telegram: i The Central Committee of the Armenia '- revolutionists . of Constantinople organised on a vast scale a programme of disorder and criminal acta. Separate groups of the. revolutionists began their misdeeds at the same hour, but at different points of the capital Besides revolvers and daggers, they used bombs of dynamite. About fifty of these men, entering separately into the ' Imperial Ottoman Bank, began by killing the guards and policemen, and throwing; their, heads In the street. Availing- themselves of the general confusion that resulted, they shut . the doors of the bank and Dred and threw bombs from the windows on the passers-by.' Four Turkish ladles were rut to pieces by one explosion, and two French clerks of the bank were wounded and would have been killed It Turkish soldiers had not come to their rescue. "At the same moment the Ham of Jelal Bey, situated at Stamboul, was taken possession of by other revolutionists, who threw a. rain of bombs on those who happened to be -in the streets near by. At Haskeni the military was attacked and one officer and many -soldiers were killed. At the Paowatla quarter another, band of Ar- ' mentan Anarchists .took possession of the public school and began there, .too, to throw bombs In all directions, .killing many lnno-i cent victims. In many parts of the capital, and even In. the Armenian church of Perd. a great number of dynamite bombs, were discovered. - ' " The Armenians faithful to the Imperial .throne are indignant, and their Patriarch excommunicated in the name of Jesus Christ (all the criminals who put In jeopardy the lives- of Innocent men and women. The Patriarch begged the Sublime Porte to Com-mualcate to the press his decision against the revolutionists, in order to stigmatise before the civilised world their Crimea and horrors. . f ..

A characteristic comic piece by Edward Harrigan, called " Marty Malone." was received with noisy acclaim at the BIJou Theatre, and will doubtless be profitable, though it needs condensation and trimming. The Autumn supply of melodrama, native and foreign made, was Increased by The NorthwM,t." at the American, and When London Sleeps," at the Fourteenth Street Theatre, and both received. - The roof-garden season is now waning, while the larger music halls. In view of their Autumn and Winter competition with the high-priced theatres, are preparing to improve their bills. In the. theatrical world, at .the present moment, there are no visible signs of " hard times." The season begins w.itn promise of prosperity. 1 ROSEMARY " IS CHARMIXG. John Drew and Maud Adams In In. terestlns; Roles. At last we have " Rosemary " and we are all going to like it. There will be differences of opinion, of course. What are plays produced for, unless to be bickered about? Some folks, some of the feminine gender, too. no doubt, will say no such girl as Dorothy CrulckshanJc ever lived none so simple and Ingenuous; but they will bo very mod-era young folks who know nothing' at all about J,he style of the thirties, and The Ladles Own Annual. Dolly is. very, very simple and silly, but she's good, and she's real. too. lAs a matter of fact " Rosemary " Is not a great or profound work, not exceedingly witty or -very well made, but It is sweet and piquant with a touch or two of srenuine feeling that cause sympathetic throbs in the spectator's, breast There's fun in It. and nice sentiment and pretty pictures. Probably the performance is not all that it might be In a perfect world, where the the atrical art had reached its" final state of development. But It is all painstaking and creditable. It is doubtful If any other actress of tha present hour could play Dolly so sweetly and naturally as' Maud Adams, or If any other actor now ' in sight could make .mora than John Drew does of Sir Jasper Thonndytte as a whole, could be go light and airy in the gay passages, so perfectly the man of the world, and compose so deftly the picture of senility in the last act, while treating the one or two Strongly emotional passages so tactfully If not brilliantly, making them intelligible and interesting if not rising to great heights of passionate expression and moving us deeply ln them. The last word at the Empire Theatre last night waa triumph. The audience, in the end, waa more than satisfied. Drew's monologue as the veteran of ninety years slowly recalling to mind the Incidents of a loVe episode of fifty years before was an exquisite bit of acting. The scene Is not essential to the play, but It la of value to this excellent actor, whose large popularity haa been won without the use of half his ability. The composition of the part Is admirable. There la no striving for ultra-theatrical effect, no leaning toward the grotesque. The evidences of extreme old age are shown graphically without vulgar exaggeration. Sir Jasper Thorndyke, at the age of ninety years. Is still a gentleman and a man of the world, if his voice is piping, his eyes are dim, and his hands tremble and his bones creak The sentiment of .the episode, which Is quaint and pretty, rather than deep, ' was beautifully expressed. It must be recalled, without rehearsing the whole story' of "Rosemary" again, that this Sir Jasper when he is forty-odd years of age, falls in with a pair of lovers, a boy of twenty-one years and a girl sr eighteen. They are his guests, and accident has made him their protector. Sir Jasper Is desperately smitten by the girl's beauty and innocence. His courtly manners and personal charm have a strong erTect upon her simplicity. There is a scene in which they meet for the first time by daylight, she entering from a garden with her arms full of flow-era, b ' standing by the window struck dumb by the sweet apparition. There is another scene in which she. standing now on a chair by the mantelpiece, now on the stairs trailing smilax over a picture frame, gaylv decorates his bachelor's, ball, while his talk takes on the lover's tone, and he follows her every motion with eager eyes. Once, after a little quarrel with her betrothed. Ensign West wood, in order to get Sir Jasper's opinion of the case. Dorothy reads to him the page in her diary which caused the quarrel, a page in which the word " beautiful " la used half a dosen times, and always to describe something Sir Jasper has done for her. Then, when the storm hss passed over, and aha Is going away with West wood to be married, she slips back to say another farewell to Jasper and tell him once more how much she appreciates all his goodness. All the' while Jasper ' is fighting an almost Irresistible impulse to. declare his passion, and one word from him at any time would shatter West wood's hopes. For. Dolly is quite wilting to fall la love with Jasper. Lhougn she doesn't know It. It is the great merit of -Miss Adams's performance that she keeps ever In view the simple ingenuousness of Dolly's nature'. There is not a trace of coquettishness in -Che portrayal - . - , As Prof. JogTsm. - the man of science who Hves under Jasper's roof, and Is anxious not to be ousted by a wife, and therefore advances' excellent arguments to reinforce the influence of his benefactor's? cen-' science, the acting of Mr. Harkins Is capa--ble. in. a hard, unimaginative way. .while Mr. Harwood is not just in his element ss ' the oUi- sea Captain. The support, though. Is all fklr, and Miss Barry more' s sketch of an impressible serving maid promises well for her future, though Its merit scarcely Justified the rapturous applause her friends In the audience bestowed upon it. The dresses of the coronation epoch are becoming, and the scenery is suitable, though not remarkable. Mr. Drew was compelled.- to make the customary speech, sfter his admirable portrayal of the nonagenarian .of jubilee year.

Salleraaaun'a Qaeer Exwerl races 1st CIteelav-Gltals) c Xw-Teu-lc The tumultuous acelalm with which Edward Harrigan and the principal members of his company were received by the audi ence that crowded ths Bijou Theatre last night signified nothing, of coarse, except the good .will this community has for the author of a long series of local comic plays, full of character and observation, and the successful Impersonator of many familiar and picturesque types of character. Harrigan has never had a "first night failure, even with tha doleful and involved " Mordecal Lyons.? But of his many pieces, not all have ranked la popular esteem with "The .Leather Patch," "Squatter Sovereignty, and the best of the Mulligan- plays. " Marty Malone.. the new piece that was boisterously, bnt in some parts very cleverly, performed last ' night, is not one of the things upon which his fame will rest. It Is a three-act farce, in which pictures of low life" soon give place to a grotesque caricature of ."high life" that is not devoid of fan, but Is obviously not founded upon observation of facts or study of character at first hand. Much of It is as unreal as the codeocxions of the unambitious authors of the acrobatic farces, many of whom have beea clumsy imitators of Mr. Harrigan without bis wit and knowledge of human nature. But the Incidents Are dexterously put together, and the chief . fault of the thine as a popular entertainment la Its great length. This fault win doubtless be speedily remedied. . The most critical spectator, it be happened to) be In a mood for harmless fun,-could find plenty of amusement in the performance. The dialogue, though there is too much of It, is continuously lively, with, an occasional flash of real wit, and an abundance of humorous allusion to current topics. Mr. Harrlgan's portrayal of the old sailor, who renounces the rank of Prince Consort of Ghoola-Ghoola to return to his sweetheart in Water Street, and who thereafter becomes involved in a bewildering imbroglio, in which a stolen medal, a missing letter., a pen-and-ink sketch of the Queen of . Ghoola-Ghoola, a hero's sword, and the Identity of three or four persons sre hopelessly confused, is graphic, so far as it attempts to illustrate a human type, and Is perpetually and humorously in evidence. ' .- A companion to It is Catherine Lewis's embodiment of the well-preserved Cockney widow, who keeps the sailors' boarding house. Her antique coiffure makes ber look like one of Phlx's Pickwick dames, and ber denotement of the volatile, emotional nature of Mrs. Jordan is exceedingly diverting. Gussle Hart contributes a sketch of a darky damsel of uncertain temper and irresistible fascinations that has the merit of novelty, while the " society ladies." Mme. Pinto, who Uvea in constant 'fear of being identified as Mary Kelly, the music teacher, and Mrs. Van Snyder, who kept a boarding house before she married Jake Snyder, the brewer, are impersonated with unique effect by Maggie Fielding and Jane Burby. The haughty manner, tragic air. and sepulchral voice of the last-named lady, who has the face and figure of a soubrette, produce a singularly piquant effect. , ' , ' The " colonisation " of voters by a candidate for Assembly in the sailors boarding house, and the seizure of the colonists by the police, who mistake them for Cuban filibusters, were Incidents that caught the fancy of last night's audience. The singular misadventures of the medal created diversion, while the rather bold treatment of a recent international yacht race dispute awakened no dissent. The bungling efforts of two stupid and frightened darkies to put a "doped," wayfarer into a refrigerator, . and the subsequent throwing in of the Ice, were received with the hearty laughter that the juvenile clowning of the harlequinade always evokes. The sailors' song of " The Hole in the Wall." and the darky song and dance, " Savannah Sue," neatly executed by Mr. Collyer. young Mr. Bra ham, and Miss Hart, were rapturously applauded, while the cordial approval of the spectators was extended to such old favorites as Harry Fisher, who appeared as the bogus German nobler man. who had made his fortune by boiling horses on Barren Island; George Merritt. Charles Sturges. William West, the always able representative of the bad darky; James McCullougb, and Edward - Mack, whose portrsyal of the voluble Cuban patriot was hugely enjoyed. The action of " Marty Malone " involves scenes at the sailors' boarding house In New-York, the drawing room of a mansion on the Riverside Drive, and the grounds of a country house at Whltestone. on Long Island, with yachts at anchor In the East River as a background. The scenery is appropriate and good. Marty Malone Hlppolite Ducrow ..... Mues Uussenhelmer . . Heinrlch Vantlerdain ..

Melodrama of tha Crasleat Sort, bait Apparently Saccessfal. Much as thje first night people were divided last evening, enough of them went to the American Theatre to fill that large building-up stairs and down stairs, and they were enthusiastic enough over " The Great Northwest " to make It possible to say with truth that the season opened there with great success. The play is melodrama of the acutest sort. Not for a moment have its authors, Herbert Hall Wlnslow and Will R. Wilson, deigned to deal with such tame and uninteresting things as the- possibilities of human nature,, and they have avoided most of its probabilities as well, but for all that their work did' not seem to excite a single doubt in the mind of anybody who saw lt On the contrary, it was followed with obviously sincere interest, and at regular intervals' came crashes of applause or roars of laughter. " All this, from certain standpoints, is very mysterious, but from others it ' is simple enough. Folks who pay money to see melodrama, take their emotions along, and, instead of thjnking about what is said-and done on the stage, allow the playwright to assume any. premises he chooses, and are content to enjoy the clear logic with which he draws Xfom them Samiliar conclusions. The fact that in real life those same conclusions are reached In a much' more complete 'way and in wholly "different circumstances is not allowed to -Interfere with that enjoyment in the slightest degree. Anyhow, " The- Great NortBwest," which has a rood deal - of Ingenuity, but not particle of originality or realism, was-greet- ea wiin vociierous approval, its story was told J this paper on Sunday and need not be repeated, Ita incidents nominally take place In 'the far West, and its characters pretend to be drawn from that section, but this Is only pretense. These are the events and people xf melodrama-land and differ is) no wise from thoae of plays called Irish or Southern or metropolitan, -as the case may be. The heroine was the eternal heroine, without a shade of variance in word, manner, or experiences from her numberless other Incarnations. It was the same with the hero, the villain, the wicked adventuress, and the waif beloved of the comic juvenile. Some folks get tired of these repetitions and demand a character in comedy and cohesion in Its action; other folks do nor,' and it Is for the latter that " The Great Northwest " was written. Not much money has been spent in staging the play. Most of the scenery Is commonplace in the extreme, and some of it-had been seen befote. There is one setting a windmill in . a snowstorm that waa effective, and it was by the aid ot that mill that the heroine proved herself to be as athletic as she was virtuous by allowing' herself to be carried around by tha long; arms on which the sails were stretched. As for the acting. Mr. Kcllard put something of sincerity into bis portrayal bf the villain's role, and Miss Dupree tried, not wholly without success, to give a tinge of originality to that of a waif' from Mis souri. The others were content to play their parts In conventional style, and there was no evidence that they were not quite as acceptable to the audience as the two just singled out for. mention.

Sleeps Fred ace d at the FearteeBta Street Theatre. . London has given America, a great many bad plays, but It is quite within bounds to say that Jhe worst infliction is - When London Sleeps." a melodrama which .had Its first production in this country ' at the Fourteenth Street Theatre last night. If It was the " great English success " that the bill of the. play asserted, its run must have taken place in tha . hours of somnolence between midnight and dawn, or else the British public suffers in silence longer than the people of any other country WOUld. - ;-- Whatever else might be said of the play, or whatever, through charity, might be left unsaid, it Is only just that attention should be called to the second act, in which a phase of life which Is only alluded to on the American stage, and then in the most careful manner, was depicted in all ef its startling and disgusting features. The action takes place without, and later within, a " house of shame that only opens Its doors when London sleeps," as the play bill unblushingly designates it In bolder, blacker type than any other. Before the door of this place was enacted a scene such as may be witnessed any night in the Tenderloin or on the Bowery the approach of the snarer and the capitulation of the victim, -who together enter the palace of fin. The scenery changes to disclose the interior, where the .inmates may be discerned, drinking, playing cards, and smoking cigarettes. There is no gliding of the picture. It is horrible in its reality. If it served any good purpose, perhaps it might be pardoned. But thla Is 'the sum total of what may be said in extenuation of the act, . There never was a more frank exhibition ef the ways of the class of women referred to. and it is a vulgar show. Of the rest of the play and of the company the least said the better. There was not a thrilling episode In the four acta The escape of the heroine from a burning building .In which she had been locked (she was locked in one place or another four times during the evening) by way ot the telephone wires was quite the worst wire balancing act that haa been done in New-York for many a day. And the binding of the heroine to the altar of a Hindu god In the Midway Plaisance of a London exhibition, where she was likely to be burned to death it she was not rescued in the nick of time, and her salvation by the explosion of the god. to whom she prayed for help, which attracted a crowd, the hero among them, that broke down the doors and dragged the girl to safety, failed to arouse a particle of enthusl? asm simply because it was claptrap that even an audience that can sometimes make believe that the melodramatic things going on behind the footlights are true could not put up with. - The theatre has been handsomely redecorated, and the advance notices show that many sterling- attractions are booked for the season.

The goat Is always an interesting animal. Unlike the. horse, he has a sense of humor. In Intellectual capacity he is only surpassed by ths elephant, and his digestive powers are unequaled. ' The Caprine Paradox, which forms ths principal new show In the Olympia Koof Garden this week, is to be commended for many rea-sons.Vhough an Intelligent goat is no paradox. Pfot. Sherman's goats sre more than intelligent they are positively gifted. Sydrrt .Drew and his wife have made a great hit in rhe " vaudevilles." , At Keith's Union Square . Theatre they will appear this week twice daily in a short sketch called " A Model Toung Man." The clne-matographe pictures are varied at , every performance. Koster A Bial's bill this week 'Is long and varied, song, dance, and acrobatlsm of a superior quality being Its principal elements. Next 'week Miss Cecilia Fitzgerald.- whose Intimate friends like to call her Cissy, will dance there. John C. Rice and Sally Cohen, Duncan, the ventriloquist; Cushman and Holcomb, and Mile. Atlas, the lady who juggles with this world of Ours, .are the principal performers in this week's show at Proctor's Pleasure Palace. There Is an excellent orchestra at the Eden Musee, and Its programmes are always well arranged. The concerts are given twice daily, while the waxworks are on view from early morning until late at night, Hope Booth's poses In the calcium's glare form tbe spectacular attraction in the regular performances of the Casino Roof Oar-den tnis week. To-night a big bill will be presented for Mr. Hamilton's benefit. Lole Fuller's lantern dances, now on view at the Standard J heat re, are unsurpassable. Her imitators are many, but none of them equals her In inventive skill, taste, and plastic grace. . To-night the show at the Grand Central Roof Garden will be purely Chinese. Last night It was American, with an Infusion of Irish, and sufficiently spirited, too. GOLD NOT PAH) FOR SILVER. Carlisle Has Never Heard of the) Del- . . tare Belagr BxehaasesL WASHINGTON. Aug. St. The subjoined reply has been received to a letter addressed to Secretary Carlisle by Senator Faulkner as to whether the Treasury Department ever hand a demand, or, in fact, had ever redeemed, .the - silver dollar -In gold: . Treasury Department. Office of the Secretary, WASHINGTON. D. C. Aug. 21. 18DC The Hon. Charles J. Faulkner, Washington, D. C. . Mv Dear Sir: Tour favor -of tha 21st lnst. reached here during my arts flnra, and hence the delay la answerinar. So far as I have been able to ascertain, neither the Treasury Department nor any Sub-Treasury has ever been celled upon to redeem silver dollars in goldi At the Sub-Treasury- In San Francisco It often happens that ailver dollars are paid out In exchange for gold dollars, and goldi's paid oufcvin exchange for -silver dollars in. small amounts, but this simply occurs a the ordinary transaction of the business at that place and for the purpose of accom- modatlng the public with money of small denominations when needed, and for securing for, the Sub-Treasury money of small denominations when needed. It is not in any sense of the term a redemption, of the silver dollars In gotd, or Of the gold in silver. The result of all these transactions at that Sub-Treasury Is that the Government gains ' much mora gold than it loses. Very truly yours, J. O. CAIILISLE.

He "Inquired about the Produce Exchange and asked what building that was that looked like a fort, meaning old Castle Garden. So eager ,was he to lose none of the alghtJ snout sue lower edge or the city that the Statue of Liberty had been lost to view before any one could direct his attention to itl Qaestieaa ea-MIalster SewaraV Ex-Minister Seward at this point engaged the Ambassador a attention. . t ' "What business are you tnt he asked. "I to lo ths Insurance business, Mr. Seward replied. , Then, replied Li. you will Insurs my life. . - Mr. . Seward explained that be could hot. as the law restricted hi business, at which the Viceroy smiled and replied; " Oh. you are afraid because I am seventy-four years old." Vice President Thompson of the Pennsylvania Railroad spoke to ' Li, and the Earl asked: How old are then you?" He then inquired about electricity as applied to railroads, and asked how many miles of rails were Included In the l"cnn-sylvanla system. Mr. Thompson replied that there were about UvOOO. At this Li expressed his - astonishment, and remarked that he held a very responsible position. " Hew mucji do you get a yesrf " he asked. Mr. Thompson evaded thla question, but Li was determined to hsve an answer. He had called for a cigarette and lit It. He was apparently getting deeply later-eeted. - Mr. Thompson, was asked about accidents on American railroads. . He said they were not frequent. Why," exclaimed the Viceroy. - in London a President of a big railroad told me they t.ad no accidents on English roads. The accidents all occurred In America." This created a general laugh, and LI Hung Chang again repeated bis question as to the amount' of salary a Vice President of an American railroad V.uuo mile's long- should receive. Mr. Thompson finally said: " Oh. let us talk about other matters." promising to whisper in Li's ear the exact amount- Astoaished Tsy River Frost Activity. Li turned his attention to the line of docks on both sides of tbe river, and observed : " The American people are a very busy race: all of this beautiful water front la being used to its fullest capacity by an energej people. It is wonderful." As the tomb of Gen. Grant came in view, the Ambassador rose, as did ail of the party while the Dolphin was passing Riverside Park. The Dolphin saluted by dipping tbe ensign and firing a General's ss-lute. LI Hung, Chang, after the tomb had been passed, declared that he had seen ths tombs of Peter the Great and William L. but this wss the . finest. He said the temporary tomb should be torn down. ' Commander Clover of the Dolphin then f resented his staff, and Earl LI immediate-. y began to ask questions concerning the navy. The rest of the trip to West Point was without incident. - DISAPPOJXTMEXT FOR THOISAXDS. Barl LI Did Not Lasd at West Polat . BecaaM of Rain. Upon the advice of his physician, . Dr. Mark, the Viceroy was obliged to forego the pleasure of landing at West Point, The doctor explained that on account ef the inclement weather It' would not be advisable for the Ambassador to submit himself to the perils of a damp, atmosphere and slip pery gangways. " It is comparatively easy," said the doctor, for a young man to go into the boat under such conditions, but I deem it inad vlsable to attempt a landing with every thing so unfavorable. Much as he would like- Jo witness the manoeuvres of the ca dets. he desires me to stats that he cannot attend." Crowds had begun to arrive at West Point by boat and train as early as 8 o'clock, and by noon there' were at least 10,000 persons on the grounds. The ram precluded any outside military display, hence the drills and reception at the Superintendent's quarters were abandoned. The Dolphin dropped anchor' at J2:4J o'clock, about I0- yards from the landing.. At ths dock were stationed. Company E, Battalion of Engineers, snd the cavalry detachment, under command of Capt. Jainea Parker. Fourth Cavalry, the Utter to act as escort. .V After the arrival of the Dolphin there was a delay of fifteen or twenty minutes, and l then Gen. Ruger and three of his aides landed from a rowboat, and were received by CoL Ernst and Capt. . Wilder. Gen Ruger reported that Earl Li could not come ashore. .Messages were sent to ' and from the Dolphin, and the , Ambassador finally consented to permit" the' younger of his sons to land, with a few of his suite. During all thla time tbe battalion of cadets stood in line at the brow of the hill, getting drenched to the skin. - The Earl's son and the interpreter occupied a carriage with Coi; Ernst and Gen.' Ruger. Then followed a dosen other carriages, each with an army officer and Chinese representatives. As the procession filed across the plain a salute of seventeen guns .was fired. A hurried trip was made around the post and past the Superintendent's quarters, and the guests returned to the Dolphin. " JOIRXEY DOW3T TUB RIVER. Vleeroy Tired When He Reached His Hotel and Retired Early. Tbe start back to the city was made at 2:-Mt :-,'. All the way down the river Earl LI kept up a continuous conversation with those on board. There waa a constant drlxaling rain, and the party was compelled to seek tha seclusion of the main cabin. Here ex -Secretary of State John W. Foster held a long conversation with the Viceroy. The return trip waa made in much less time thars that Indicated by the log for the Journey np the river. . " I . u 4 -n Gen. Ruger . was sent for, and LI Hung ang talked over the arrangements for the rest of bis stay. . Gen. Ruger said afterward that tbe 'Viceroy seemed' pleased with the programme as arranged, and ' no rchangea Would be made.

He wanted to inspect the Dolphin. In company iwith Lieut. W. IL H. Souther land, .he went out on the deck about S olocfc. and was carefully shown about frwir stem to stern. He was particular in his questions about the breech mechanisms of th-tour-inch r guns, stating that the median ism of the modern guns was much superior and .very much simpler Im Its action. t - He was then Joined by the commander and ushered again into the cabin. His faithful physician had become alarmed at tbe seemingly unwarranted exposure. When the -Dolphin reacbed Thirty-fourth Street and the North River crowds lined the wharves. There was no great demonstration, but every on appeared anxious to get a glimpse of tha guest whom tha Nation is entertaining. Li Hung- Chang, still unmindful of thla display, walked with great agility along the deck to the ladder, aao. mounting the Mains with little assistance from his attendants, descended to the waiting barge, asl waa aooa carefully ensconced ia -his coupe, ready to. be diivea beck to tbe Waldorf.
