NIHILISM IN ST. PETERSBURG. THREATENING A PRIEST. DISCOVERY OF TREASONABLE LETTERS. According to the Moscow CazeMe, the foUowing curious incident occurred in St. Petersburg a few days ago :—Aa I have already informed your reader s, rigorous efforts are being made by tha Russian ecclesiastical authorities to counteract the spread of Nihilism. One of the priests attached to the Isaac Cathedral lately delivered a sermon in condemnation of the revolutionary propagandists, and a day or two after. wards he was surprised to receive at his house a visit from three young men, who ex. pressed a great desire to make hia personal acquaintance. As soon as they wore announeed by the eervaBt, the priest suspected there wu eomethiBg wrocg, and before asking them in the precaution of sending for an attendant to be present during the interview. In the preSen(H of this person the three men informed the pr'ee? that, in hia sermon delivered in the Isaac Ca.tne dral, he had insulted the better of the young generation," and that they had c 'me to ask him never to repeat anyth ng of the ki\1,t again. On the priest's replying that he always preach what hi9 duty and conso!eB09 rlio tated, one of the trio drew a revolver from hi- pocket, and levelled it at the priest. Fortunately the attendant, who had been called in, seizad the would-be assassin in time, wreMh,)d tho weapcriout of hia hand. T ho other two attempted a reeoue, but all the servants in the house making their appearance, the "better representittveaof the rieiBg generation were matched o2 M the police station. A Router's telegram, dated Sc. Petersburg, Thursday, says :—A trunk containing revolu- tionary pamphlets was ciaoovered on the lat inst iE a sailor's quarters of the Duke of marine corps at Nioolaieff.
