AN INCIDENT OF THE WAR. The Correspondent of the The Times, writing from Kezanlik, gives the following incident: Count Roniker, one of the kindest and best of men, was killed this morning by some of the roving bands of Turks who remain close to the town. He left the service more than 20 years ago, but entered it again to make this crusade of the 19th century, though he had everything that could make peace delightful—abundant means, a pleasant home, a wifo and children. He rode out with his Cossacks, intending to go to the bivourac at Shipka, but it seems that they took a road too much to the left, and knew not that they were in the wrong direction till a volley from some bushes, suc- ceeded by a second, brought him and a Cossack to the ground. The Cossacks charged and killed about ten of the Turks, but could not save their commander, who, with several bullets in his thigh and an artery cut, soon bled to death. For some time paast he had been under the impression that he should be killed, and paid Prince Wittgenstein a little debt of ten francs, saying that one must not have debts when one's life is in play day by day. Russians officers say that his dog. which has come all the way from Tirnova, howled during the past night ffhd oould not be repressed. To me hik loss Is greater than I ean say, for with frank sim- plicity he took me by the hand on the top of the Balkans and told me that a corner in his tent and such food as he had was always at my disposal. Though I have not profited by his kindness, the memory of it remains, and I followed his body to the grave to-day with a sad heart. About the same time as Count Rouiker went out this morning, I rode with Prince Zerteljieff to the bivouac at Shipka, and it seems almost as if we had done him a wrong in taking the right path. If his widow and orphans could hear what is said of him here, they would at least have the consolation of know- ing that he was beloved by all.
