A GLOOMY PICTURE. -Consul Stanley, at Odessa, gives a gleomy picture of the state of affairs in Southern Russia during the present year, and "points out how the troubles of the people have been aggravated by the persecution of their Jewish fellow-citizens. The year, he observes, commenced most inauspiciously. The failure of the crops in 1880 had driven up rye, the staple article of food of the people, to famine prices. Then came the assassina- tion of the Emperor Alexander II. For the whole month the entire country was appalled, and was only just re- covering from the shock, and under the influence of warm summer weather gaining some courage, when the anti-Jewish riots broke out. This put a complete stop to business, and the passenger traffic of the Russian Steam Navigation Company between Odessa, Nicolaieff, Kherson, and the Dnieper and also of the South Russian railways, fell lower than it had been in any previous year. The Kachovka May fair was a com- plete failure, as half of the Jews, who do nearly all the trade, abstained from appearing, and half the re- mainder hurried back their goods before the fair opened. At this time (Mr. Stanley says) barges were hired and moored off the shore, and household effects and valu- able goods placed on board, to be safe in case of riot- those Jews who had Christian friends bringing to them for safe keeping their jewellery and documents.
