FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. 1 THE JEWS IN RFSSIA. FURTHER HARSH MEASURES. MASSACRE OF A FAMILY. The correspondent of the J'ail*/ Telegraph at Vienna, writes :—Another Jewish family has been massacred in the most barbarous manner. The scene of this fresh atrocity was in the neighbour- hood of the town of Proujan, in the government of Grodno. On the evening of January 22 some peasants who had occasion to visit the Jewisu dwelling beheld a terrible spectacle. In the door- wav lay the bodies of two youths, who had appa- rently been killed. with some blunt instrument, and not. far from them lay the horribly mutilated corpse of their mother. The eldest daughter, a. girl of :wentv. w:3 discovered still breathing, but lying in an unconscious condition, blood pouring from i number of wourds which had apparency been Tttflicted with some large knife. In the sieeping- ■oom was found the corpse of the aged father of ,he family. whose skull had been .< hashed apparently in the severe struggle which he nade to defend his wife and children, and beside the father, in a pool of blood, lay a littie girl .welve years old. The only living being in the "louse was the youngest child, ei>:ht years old. from whose terrified answers tu the inquiries ad- dressed to her it appears that a bo.dy of peasants entered the house, and. without the smallest provo- cation, deliberately and in cold blood attacked and finally murdered six out of the seven members of the family. The ZVfo/rajj/icorrespondentat St. Petersburg.tele- graphing on the 3rd inst..says:—The town council of Kremenchoug have ordered an inspection cf the passports of all the Jewish inhabitants, including the most respectable merchants, and,in accordance with a statute which has long been in abeyance, have marked the passports wirh a notice that the bearers are only authorised to reside in certain dis- tricts 0" thp Empire. Tile Jewish merchants are in the greatest distress in consequence of this measure, as it is iihpo«sIble for them to conduct their business without visiting the manu- facturing districts and the great lairs which are in different parts of the counuv. the Xevo* I 'rcm/a, referring to the day ot humiliation which was observed throughout Russia on Mondav last, declares that this religious disturbance was merely a form of agitation devised by the Jews. A meeting of the committee of the fund tor the relief of tb; persecuted Jews in Russi. has been convened bv the Lord Mayor of London, and will 4JO held on Thursday next.
