—— Jfonigit ntdltgtntt. SPAIN. HEAVY FLOODS.—During Tuesday night a very heavy storm broke over two valleys, where the waters, in their rush seawards, swept away entire villages and the suburbs of several large towns, drowned several hun- dreds of people who had no time to escape, rendered many thousands homeless, and destroyed, it is believed, quite two million pounds' worth of property. A relief committee is ministering to the immediate wants of the suffering population, and assistance is asked from all whose sympathies are excited by a calamity said to ex- ceed that of Szegedin. TURKEY. THE CABINET.—The Turkish Cabinet has been almost entirely changed. Osman Pacha retains his post as Minister of War, and a new post has been created for Safvet Pacha. RUSSIA. THE CAMPAIGN.—According to the best information which has been received in India, it appears certain that the Russians have met with a very severe repulse, and have retired towards the Caspian for the winter. A NIHILIST PLOT DISCOVERED.—A Nihilist plot has been discovered in St. Petersburg in a singular manner. A cipher letter to a female prisoner was mislaid by her, and fell into the hands of the authorities, who ascertained that it disclosed a plan for releasing the Nihilist prisoners, in which two officers of the prison had promised their assistance. They were apprehended, and at the residence of one of them were found the cards of a number of medical students, all of whom have been arrested. INDIA. A telegram from Simla reports that Mr. Damant, the British Commissioner in the Naga Hills, has been murdered by the Nuzema Nagas, who were subsequently dispersed by a British detachment. EGYPT. SETTLEMENT OF THE DIFFICULTY WITH ABYSSINIA.— Gordon Pasha (" the ever-successful Gordon as he was named during his military career in China) has suc- cessfully discharged the mission entrusted to him by the Khedive, having effected an amicable arrangement of the dispute between Egypt and Abyssinia. According to this arrangement, King John renounces his claim to Massowah, but will be allowed to choose a more southerly point of communication with the sea.
