CONSTANTINOPLE, Oct. 13. — Dispatches received here say that a party of Armenians and Druses attacked the barracks at Silensia, Syria, and blew up a portion of the buildings. Forty Turkish soldiers were killed. The Armenians then invaded the Government building, killed the Governor, and robbed the Treasury of its contents. From there they proceeded to the prison, which they carried by storm, liberating all the prisoners.
