Nf.w York, Sept. 11. A dispatch from
l'oughkcepsie rojatinf; to thu very gravo con
dition ot S. J. filileu was published in a Hus
ton paper to-day. A Times corrtsponrlcnt,
after very careful inquiry this evening, ha thu
best reason to know tlio dispatch is correct.
TiMen has beon attacked by a dUcaso from
which liia physicians liuvu said lio cannot pos
sibly recover. Ho may linger awhile, but his
early death is certain. The present trouble is
mental, bcin;, in medical termw, avaxy, or
disorder of tlio nerves, and in plain fact au
incident in his progress toward softening of
the brain. Mr. Tililen has been spending the
Hammer at (Jraystone, his handsome country
place, under thu caro of physician, who ad
vised perfect rest of mind and body. They
hoped quietude would restore him, but it did
not, ami thu ncuto condition has come -on,
completely disabling hint. A consultation of
physicians has been held, and the hopeless
ness of his case is now understood nbko by
medical men ami the patient. Mr. Tililen
was sonic time ago made aware of tho danger
he was in, anil the erection and dccoiation of
his magnificent new house in New York Citv
was infant by him for a diversion to keep Ill's
mind from morn engrossing subjects. Tho
time correspondent has it from a gentleman
in intimate iclationship with Tilden that in
consequence of tho development of this necos
sarily fatal malady ho lias resignedly laid
down his life work and put himscll in waiting
tor death. As yet his mind is clear, but he
has scarcely any control of his nerves, and tho
physicians lay that thu brain is already seri
ously ailccti'd and will speedily degenerate.
He may live several mouths, and ho may (lie
within that timo.

London, Sept. II. Tho Times, in an arti
cle on tho attack on Tel el Kcbir, says it is
impossible to conccivo of anything more suc
cessful and executod in a mora masterly man

bottled by Gen. Wolseley with concurrence of
his superiors and hearty acquiescence of his
advisors, before ho left Unglguil. There nover
was any question about tho canal being tho
base of operations, and before hu left Kngland
lie put his finger upon Tel el Kcbir, saying
there Arabi would stand, and wo should at
tack him on the 15th of September. We
