"Memorial of the Accidents in the Orenburg Province" (1850–1860s): Crime News in the Provincial Periodicals as a Source for Ethnic and Cultural Studies

Russkii Arkhiv, 2016, Vol. (14), Is. 4, pp. 286-300.
DOI: 10.13187/ra.2016.14.286CrossRef

The article considers one of the regular sections of the “Orenburg Provincial Gazette”. At different times, it has the titles “Memorial of the incidents” and “Review of the incidents.” This section of the gazette is analysed as a source for ethnographic, folkloric, and daily life studies in the region. The author outlines key trends in commenting on the news and their genre characteristics. Most frequent are the news on the deaths from lightning strikes, on human behavior in difficult circumstances, eyewitness accounts of the extraordinary (from their point of view or from the standpoint of "metropolitan resident") events. These messages form extensive narratives. The constant coexistence of the “local views” and constructed “view from the capital” in the texts allows clarifying the motives that drive both the correspondents of the Gazette and their readers. The 1860s are remarkable for a large number of correspondences, which capture the problems disturbing the society and reproduce the situation of the 1840s ar a new level. The newspaper becomes a platform for exchange of views and one of the most important resources of the formation of regional communities.

N.I. Krasnov and his “Thoughts on being profitable for the state in the financial relation of the system of contributing irregular troops by special population groups, enjoying for this military service exemptions and privileges”

Russkii Arkhiv, 2016, Vol. (14), Is. 4, pp. 301-320.
DOI: 10.13187/ra.2016.14.301CrossRef

N.I. Krasnov – the famous Don statistics, Lieutenant general, author of “Materials for geography and statistics of Russia collected by officers of the General staff. Don Host Oblast” and “Military review of Don Host Oblast”. In 1860–1880 he held important positions in the Main Office of Irregular Troops. Besides, N.I. Krasnov belonged to the famous Cossack family Krasnov and was the father of Don Ataman and war criminal P.N. Krasnov. We publish a detailed report of N.I. Krasnov about the economic efficiency of irregular troops. It was created during a debate “progressives” and “kazakhanov” and it contains a set of unique facts and original insights. In our opinion, it can even be considered as the rough draft of unpublished book. It shows economic problems created by the irregular system of services, and calls for the gradual elimination of the Cossacks. Application to the text is the report of the Russian military agent in Vienna, F. F. Tornau about Militärgrenze.
