A correspondent of tho Cincinnati Ewning Times, who intorviewcd President Hayos while en route from Msrietta to Fremont, Oliio, askwl Prcaidcnt how ho camo to construct nis lolicy, which was secmiugly so at variance with his recent views wliilo on the stump in bi Inst cHbernatorial campaign. Did it grow upon him gradually as circumstancos scemed to rcquirc? Tlio President replied au follows : " Wcll, thüBC views bogan to taUo forni in tlio words of niy lotttr of acccptanco. I confidered the ituation of thing in the South ; saw how iniiospible it seonied to restore order, and ixjace, and harmony ; saw tho violence and bloodBhed at their elections ; how white Itopublicans as well as black wero hot down during their p)litical contcatii, and I asked myself, Why is it, and how long this continue? Those men down South, the wliito, educated iutizi-iis. are fts good rnen as you or I. They are Ohristians, not thiovee. nor ent-throata, nor baudits ; vet they seo thbso things and approve theru, if they do not tako part in thom. Why is it, and how Ion;; will they continue V While thinking these questions over, my mind reverted to (bc wvjno of tbo war, and tho incident at the battle of Cedar Montitaiu came to my nrind. It was a hard-fought engagement, and for a time wc coiüd not teil how it would end. Wo who were in oommaod had dotorniined that if a cortain movement resulted in one way wo would givo certaiu orders, bnt, if it resultod otherwiw, different orders would be givon. With our lield-glasres wo were watching the couro of things. All at onco I saw a conunotiou in the llii.-kcstof the fray. loe artillery liad KOtifo work, and were throwing shells fast and witli unerring aim into tho Holid rankH of the enemy. Krads were beiiiR blown from their bodii's, amis and legs torn from tlioir aockets, and juls sent to onc world or tho other unpropared, and yet I rejoiced and congratulatt 1 mv fellow-oflicer that we ero victorious How could thi be? Why was it? It was booauBC wo were at war. That one word solved in mv miud tho problem of the South. Tbu péópJe there wcro at war. There was a conflict coinir cu. 'liic social and political relatious of tho people were not natural, not harmonious. There were disturbing elementa among them, and whilo they existed or wore nnduly activo there wonld le conlliot Let the canses of tho coniot bo removed aud there will be peaco and ultimately harmony and prpffpprity." BnV aid tho reporter, " ívc do not seo miich aíspoffltiqn in the South to manifest a loving tempor tnward ús in tho North." The President mildly retorted : "Howdovon knowV Yon form your opinjons, no doübt, rom reading the papers, but editors of newspapera do not alwaysrcpresont tho popular genoral feeling of tho pooplo, eithor North or South. I think mostof the people in the South, as I know they are in the North, are moro disposed to oncourago fraternal, harmonious, social aud business relations than the oxu-omistx, who nnfortunatüly too often got control of nowspapers, but oven thcBe. or most of them, will come around all right in timo." THE KAST. A DESTÍtDOTlVE conflagration visitod tho city of New York on the M insfc Tlio oxtent of tho ro, the iinmediate danger in which it involved many people, and the foverish excitcment that provailed, gave riso to many wild report of a terrible loss of lifo, which wcro not corrected for many hours.

Halo's piano factory, an oíd framo strncturo, and, owmg to the scarcity of tho water Rupply, spread so rapidly that in a very short timo eighty buildings were destroyed.

Tho assault was inade BJorjg the wholo lineRiid was irresistible. The lichting tliat eiiswd as soon as the erjtiró moTOment had been falrlytnimaskod by the iíuKsians was of the most terrific character, both on the part of Cüe 'J'urks and their atiBailants. AJmost overy strategie poiut aiong tho wholo line of oporation was tho bcouo of dosjierate charges by tho Russians. In nearly every instanco w the Itussians reached tho Turkish Iiositions they suceceded in carrying them, despito all tho inegularity of tho ground. Tho defenso of the Turks was determined aud desperato, but they were unable to withstand the onslauglit of thcir opponent, and were compellod to retiro sullenly from position after position. Tde Turks have entireiy evacuated SookoomKale, a ltussian port on the eastorn shoro of the Black soa, which thoy captured iscvoral months ago and held as a baso of supplics for tho insurrectionary Oircaspians.

The struggle coutinued in tlie streote, until tho Turks were driven out from tho other side of the towu in gret diorder. They roti-cated, followed by (un. Skobsloff's cxvalry brigade, which had by it largely contributed to the üussinii success. The slaughter was great, especialiv among tho Turks.
