"Not as the world giveth"

The summary of a letter written by General Nogi, which recently appeared in the news columns of the daily press, presents a welcome break in the monotony of the dispatches which have previously chronicled the death of at least seventy-five thousand men in the siege of Port Arthur, for it indicates that the generous courtesy which should ever govern the actions of a brave man has survived the carnage of one of the most sanguinary campaigns in history. The press dispatch to which we refer is as follows:—

"Nagasaki, Japan, January 16.—General Nogi has writen to the governor here, commending General Stoessel to his consideration. Nogi points out that the former Russian commander at Port Arthur is now neither a prisoner nor an enemy, but a foreign gentleman who has meritoriously served his country."
