.Lafaaaj^jgggg FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. o FRANCS. The hopes of the Fusionists have been annihilated, by a visit paid by his lioyal Highness Prince Napoleon Jerome Bonaparte, to the Royal Family at Brussels. The Duke and Duchess of Brabant will shortly pay a visit to {he Court at Paris. Sir Stephen Lakeman. who commanded the V> ateikloof Bangers at the Cape of Good Hope, where he obtained such a brilliant reputation, arrived in Paris some days ago, on his wav to Constantinople to take the command of a large body of troops in Asia. He ha: now left for the Turkish capital, but during his stay in Paris, he was for some time engaged in inspecting, with the permis- sion of the Minister of War, the improved drill and arms of that formidable corps, the Chasseurs de VincenFes. At Paris, and the various ports, the preparations for war, both of a naval and military character, are proceeding With great activity. At Brest, the greatest activity prevails. Four sailing vessels v. ill be ready sea in a short time, and two steamers only await their engines. Levies of seamen ar- rive from all parts. The Ocean Squadron will soon be ready to sail, and the Squadron of Preserve be in a condi- tion to reinforce it. if net essary. Orders have been sent to 'Toulon that the Labrador steam-frigate shall be immediately armed, and got ready for sea. She is to be victualled for seventy days, and with six months of spare stores. The Asmodee steam- frigate, the arming of which is completed, is nON ready for sea.. The French Government has determined to try tiic ex- perimcnt in Paris of night policemen, similar to our police force in England. The new police will be established in Paris in about two months. It will be simply a night police, and will, in the first instance, be on a very limited scale. If the experiment aucceed, the system will be gra- dually exten led. The Coun ter Champagne announces that secret clubs have been discovered at Rheinis, and that several of the members have been arrested. Rumours are again current, with respect to a change 'in the French Ca inet. It .appears that ill. Fould, notwith- standing all that has happened, continues to maintain his ideas that France should at all sacrifices, avoid wav. These arguments were repudiated by all the other Ministers, with the exception, it is said, of ')1. Magne. M. de Per- signy more especially opposed them, declaring that all these considerations were of secondary importance, and dwindled into nothing, when brought in comparison with the national honour, the equilibrium of Europe, and civi- lisation itself—all of which were threatened by the grasp- ing ambition of Russia. It is thought that M. Fould, dif- fering so essentially as he does from other members of the Cabinet, will retire. Indeed, the Ministers themselves feel the necessity, in the present crisis, of having a united Cabinet. The following important intelligence has been, received in a private letter, under date Sydney, Nov. 1 :—"The French have taken possession of New Caledonia. There is plenty of gold there, at least so it has already been be- lieved, from the large granite regions among the group. If such be the case, Great Britain ought to have been bc- forehand with them, as it lies so near New South Wales. The French Commander-in-Chief in the South Pacific has sent a vessel here, to take a cargo of supplies to the new colony immediately. How will they relish this in Eng- land ?" New Caledonia is an island, or rather a group of islands, lying to the eastward of New South Wales, being in lat. 20 S., lomr. 16-5 E. A Cabinet council was held on Saturday at theTuilevies, when the Emperor manifested his desire that, now that diplomatic relations were broken off between France and Russia, the most effectual measures should be taken forth- with to bring matters to a speedy and successful conclu- sion. The exact amount of the force to be sent on service to the East is not stated, but it is the opinion of persons competent to judge, not less than 70,000 or 80,000 Anglo- French troops would suffice, with the co-operation of the Turkish army, to do the work effectively. Candia has been already spoken of for a depot, but it is believed this island is considered as rather too distant from Turkey, and Mitylenc would perhaps be more suitable. The energy insisted upon by the Emperor, according to trustworthy aceojirds, and his determination, in conjunc- tion with England, to strike one of those stunning blows which bring a quarrel to a speedy issue, lead us to believe that the auxiliary force will be to a much greater amount than what has been so often slated, namely, 30,000 French and 10,000 English. The preparations in France are certainly on a larger scale than would be required for that number. It is sta: ed that the 10,000 men whom General Pelissier has gone to select in the province of Oran, arc to embark without delay for Constantinople. There was a report on Monday, that orders for the march of the first division of a French army to Turkey, have been sent to Africa. The Chasseurs d'Afrique a Cheval, the Zouaves, and the Chasseurs da Vinccnnes, now in Algeria, will be the first to leave. Generals Bos- quet. Pe'lisser, and C'anrobert will corlainly have com- mands, and in all probability the latter will bo appointed Commander-in-Chief of the army of the East. The march of an English army through Paris to embark at Toulon and Marseilles, is a part of the gossip of the cafes, and there is a talk at the Ministry of War of a grand fraternal banquet to be given to them in the Champ de Mars. The Minister of War continues with great activity to prepare the expedition which is to be sent to Constanti- nople. At the present moment, he is organising the cavalry with great care. It is understood that an order has been given to an ex- tensive ironmaster in the department of the Pas-de-Calais for 3,000,000 cannon balls, of various dimensions. Ic is also asserted that the decrees for the movement of the ex- peditionary force intended for the East are actually pre- pared, and only want the signature of the Emperor. The precise amount is not stated, or rather it is variously stated, but the general opinion is that it will, at least for the present, be composed of four divisions of 10,000 each. The officer again spoken of for the command in chief is Marshal St. Arnaud, whose health is much improved, and who, it is said, wishes for the command, retaining at the same time his functions as Minister at War, and the ex- ample of Marshal Bourmont at Algieis is instanced as a case in point. In some Bonapartist circles, it is confidently stated that Prince Napoleon is to be placed at the head of the auxiliary army but this is not probable, although it is nut impossible that he may accompany the expedition, without, or with only a secondary, command. Ordtrs are given to the Atlantic squadron to proceed to Toulon—it is supposed to take troops on board. The Patrie states that Omer Pacha having crossed the Danube with 50,000 men, had divided the Russian army, the right wing of which is at Krajowa, the left at Galatz, and the centre at Bucharest. He was only two days' march from the latter town, whers the Russian forces are weak. It is supposed that his health has improved. Letters received at the Turkish Embassy at Paris, it is said speak of preparations for an attack on Bucharest, RUSSIA AND T U P. K E Y. Since our last publication, very important despatches have been received, which give a different aspect to the war question. In the first place, his Excellency the Baron de Brunow, ambassador of the Czar at the Court of St. James's, has taken his departure—thus breaking off the diplomatic re- lations that heretofore existed between Great Britain and, Russia. The first intimation of the intention of his Ex- cellency, which was announced to the eager public in London, on Thursday evening, wo received by electric telegraph, and published in the MEKLIX of last week. M. de Kisseleff, who was the ambassador of the Czar to France, has also left Paris—thus terminating diplomatic relations there as. well. We may also announce that the English and French ambassadors at St.Totersburfrh have already received their passports, and it is added, that the tone of those instruc- tions; which ill be read to Count Nesselrode, eontdn some strong expressions which are not in the answer to the Russian Ambassadors. There can be little doubt that the acts of the allies will be run h stronger than their official language, and it is positively asserted that the Curadoc, which left Marseilles on Thursday, took despatches to the Ambassadors at Constantinople, which will put an end to all further uncertainty. Meanwhile, the ambassadors having thus with- drawn favm the several courts; Count Orloff bas been spe- cially instructed to visit the Courts of Vienna, Berlin, Paris, and London, with, it is supposed by some, powers to carry on a further negotiation, which, in truth, would have for its chief object the procuring of additional time for the Autocrat of the North to swell his forces on the bank of the Danube, and increase his naval forces in the Black Sea. But that any attempt to negotiate further is in vain, no one now doubts. The Turks are known to have already resumed a warlike attitude along the whole line of the Danube, from BraiIa to Kalafat. The Russians are known to be actively preparing for a renewal of hostilities in Asia, throughout the whole of the more agitated regions of the Caucasus. A collision, moreover, is spoken of, as having taken piace in the vicinity of Batoum, between the Rus- sian fleet in the Black Pea, and the combined squadrons of France and England—the last accounts from that quarter being that Admirals Dundas and Hamelin had proceeded onward from Sinope, and that scarcely half-a-dozen of the Russian vessels of war were then remaining in the port of Sevastopol. Precisely thus arc situatcrI those great powers which must now be regarded as belligerents. Precisely of this nature is the situation, when (using, with one al- tered word, the memorable phrase of Shakspeare), we have but now to let slip the dogs of war, crying, God for ius- ticovEn?;!and, and St. George e place no reliance on the rumour of a collision be- tween the allies and the Russian fleets in the Black Sea masmuen as the allied fleets have returned to Constanti- nople, on the 23rd—ufte convoving the Turkish ships with soldiers and ammm.itio i to the armv of the Danube— v, ic.1^ ac a& been telegraphed to us and no mention is made m that telegraphic despatch of any such collision. \Scieu lie, e saouid certainly have been apprised of it, immediately on the return of our fleet to the Golden Horn. By a despatch from TSebastopvl, dated the 11th Januarv, we find the entire Eiusian fleet was in the harbour on that day; but the two divisions of the fleet had received or- ders to put to sea on the 12th— whitkr, was only known to the commandant of the division. Yet it had tianspired QA" from a good source, that the Emperor Nicholas will not permit himself to be restrained by threats, and that he will send orders to his fleet to repel force by force. We may here mention that Admiral Dundas is said to have an ardent desire to come into collision with the Ilus. sian fleet, and destroy it; while a similar spiv t is said to animate the allied fleets. Thus, if any opportunity occur, while "protecting" the Turkish coast or shipping, it will assuredly be taken advantage of, with true English spirit. The three members of the English Peace Society were at lvonisbcrg on the 17th, oil their way to advise" the Czar to settle his "little differences" with Turkey m a peaccable manner! At St. Petersburgh, the miserable fanatics are giorying in their shame, being found actually to rejoice in the dis- graceful massacre of the Turks at Sinope! A play is re- peated nightly at the theatre, written with a view to cxcite public opinion against the Turks and the following pas- sages arc received with most applause The Russian naval officer, who is the principal part, exclaims, If they will not give me a vessel to command, I will sell all the men of my village to buy a frigate, and go and attack the Turks, One Russian is piore than a match for three Turks." Let us show our fidelity to our flag; let us not understand it like the people of the West, but like brave Russians that we arc." When he receives the news of the battle of Sinope, he exclaims, Behold how our Emperor chastises the impious for their perfidy Our young fleet is the finest in the world; thanks to La- zarefL" This play, which is a very mediocre affair, is inter- spersed with chc-ering, which is taken up by the pit. It terminates with a tableau of the roadstead of Sebastopol at the moment of the arrival of the Turkish prisoners, among whom Osman Pacha, carried on a litter, is a prominent figure. The Grand Duke (heir apparent) and the Grand Dukes Constantine, Nicholas, and Michel, were present at the first representation of the drama. The imperial box was filled with naval officers and the children of those on board the fleet in the Black Sea. At the third representa- tion, the Grand Duke Nicholas alone wa, preheat. The Emperor has issued an order that fifty soldiers are to be ad- mitted every night to The Battle of Sinope." A massacre, similar to that at Sinope, has been happily prevented by tempestuous weather. A Russian paper, of the 20th of January, publishes a naval bulletin from the Black Sea, in which a description of a two hours' bombard- ment of Fort. St. Nicholas (Chefketil). is given. What fol- lows will give a heartfelt satisfaction to every friend of humanity it dispels every doubt of the wisdom and policy even of the too-long-delayed entrance of the fleets, and shows that they narrowly prevented an awful repetition of the barbarian massacre of Sinope, in the flourishing port of Trebizond. The Vice-admiral then cruised along the coast of Ana- tolia, with the intention of making an attack on Trebizond but the wind changing, and tempestuous weather setting in, he was compelled to abandon his operations against that place." This was on December the 31st—just three days before the combined fleets entered the Black Sea The amiv of Russia is fast approaching Kalafat-inded, it is probable that ere this, a great battle has been fought by the Turks at that place, where the strongest fortifications and a vast army await the attack of the Prussians. San- guinary engagements wore said to have taken place on the 20th, near Kalaradsehe but the result is not known. The Russian bulletins have from the first teemed with lying statements of different battles, in which, it was said, the soldiers of the Czar were triumphant. The great Turkish victories have been termed "Russian victories j" and the heroism and bravery of the Autocrat's hordes are said to be extraordinary The St. Petersburgh paper contains expressions of the imperial gratitude for patriotic offerings made in support of the Turkish war. Thus tho uobles of the Government of Jamkow are thanked for a present of 500 artillery draught horses, and the nobility of that of Smikies for an offering of 43,000 silver roubles, to purchase 500 horses as remounts for the light cavalry. The ordinary professor of the univer- sity in that capital (the councillor of state, Mirza Kasen Be'k) has requested leave to give the officers of the general staff and of the imperial Russian military academy gratu- itous instruction in the Turkish language and for th the Czar has been pleased to give him a public expression of his august favour. A medical journal of Viennn states that the number ot sick amongst the Russians in Wallachia is 10 per cent., and in certain localities 36 per cent.; also, that the number of deaths in January was more considerable than in De- cem ber. The mission of Count Orloff—so far as Austria and Prus- sia are concerned—has shown Russia that she can neither bully nor coerce tl10se powers into, becoming her allies. From Vienna, it is stated that Count Orloff's mission has completely failed, and the overtures of which he was the bearer, have been decidedly rejected. Count Buol at once declared them to be of a nature which the Four Powers could not entertain. He convened a meeting of the Con- ference, at which he stated that the Russian propositions must be regarded as inadmissible; and a protocol to that effect was drawn up, and signed by the representatives of the Four Powers." It is rumoured that the Emperor of Austria has declared to Count Orloff that if the Russians cross the Danube, he will consider the same as a declaration of war. The Berlin despatches represent the feeling jf the Govern- inent to be strongly against the conduct of Russia. Count OrlofFs proposals have been totally rejected and it has been intimated that, if the Czar persists in refusing peace on the terms agreed to by the Vienna Conference, Prussia will be compelled to take an active part in conjunction with the Western Powers. The King has, it is said, despatched an autograph letter to the Emperor Nicholas, stating this determination. In regard to the neutrality of Denmark and bweden, the Emperor Nicholas has expressed himself in terms of great disapprobation. He would prefer their assistance to their neutrality but they are too prudent to involve themselves in his defeat. The Turkish arms have been victorious in two or three recent small engagements; and a communication from Bucharest, of January 19, says, the Turks, although ab- staining from great operations, give the Russians no rest. On the 15th and 16th, a heavy firing was kept up from Rustchuk against Giurgevo, and an attack was made on the island there. The result is not yet known. On the same day, the Turks made attacks near Oltenitza and Kalarascli. News of the same kind reaches us from Siiistria and Tur- tukai, and fighting is again going on near Matshin. The Russian Troops on their march are allowed no rest even yesterday, the 18th, although it is a great festival in the Greek Church, they were compelled to advance. A letter from Gibraltar, of the 22nd, states that the Ban- shoe steamer, which lately touched there on her way to Con- stantinople, had on board three English officers of engineers, who are to join the Turkish army. We understand that at Sophia, there is a reserve force of 30,000 footmen ffussvolh), 3,000 horsemen,'and artillery- men, or men with firearms in their hands, sharpshooters, &c., innumerable. As it was alleged that Servia was taking arms against the Sultan, a corps of 10,000 infantry, with 2,000 cavalry, and eighty field-pieces, was directed to move against the Servo-Bulgarian frontier town of Nissa but as it has now transpired that the Servians, and in particular the Servian Government, have an antipathy to the prospect of Ru.irian domination, this corps has been despatched to Widdin, whence it will be engaged in combating the Rus- sians in Lesser Wallachia. The largest contingents have as yet been supplied to the Turkish army from the districts of Macedonia and Albania—that is, of course, speaking pro- portionally. The population of Bulgaria may be estimated at 1 4-oths millions, and has, up to this time, furnished 40,000 men. Macedonia h:1.s 4,5th:, of a million only, and supplied 30,000. Roumelia had hut 2A millions of inhabi- tants, and has furnished 60,000 men up to the present date. Albania has but one million, and yet has given 50,000 troops. In the Sultan's army—that of Asia especially— there arc very many soldiers who profess the Greek Chris- tian faith, whilst in the army of the Danube they even ex- ceed the whole number of Moslems. A Rotterdam journal gives the following from Trieste, dated the 30th ult. :—"The commandants of the combined squa,lrc:1s have received orders to playa more active part in the Black Sea. The Anglo-French stop all the Russian vessels they meet, anel conduct them to the n3:1-rest Rusisan port, with orders not to quit it again. Nine or ten vessels of war hav e, within the last few days, been fallen in with en the coast of Asia, near Batoum, by a part of the combined fleets, and forced to make for their nearest port." Advices from the Black Sea intimate that the Russian A(1u,iral has been causing forts to be erected all alon-r the coast nf the Straits of Yenikale." The admiral n.ust have been in a terrible fright had his fears allowed him to re- flect, that seeing Yenikale is the place where the larger merchantmen unload In paH before entering the Sea of Azoff, its vicinity was little likely to be disturbed by men- of-war. OPPOSITION OF THE ENGLISH AND FRENCH AMBASSADORS TO THE RETURN OF THE FLEETS. The following telegraphic despatch, dated Constantinople, January 23, has been received via Vienna :— The combined fleets returned on the 22nd, without having seen a single Russian vessel during the three weeks cruise. "The Niger, sent with despatches countermanding the return of the fleets, only met them clone to the Bosphorus. The Vesuvius, Highflyer, and Sidon have just arrived." Constantinople letters, of the 22nd, state that the admirals decline tho responsibility of nnvigation with sailing vessels in the Black Sea, during the present most dangerous sea on. It appears that it was on Monday, 16th inst., that the Caton arrived at COll8tantinoplo from the Black Sea, wÜh despatches for Lord Redcliffe and M. Baruguay d'Hil1iers, annoullc1f,g the llltentlon of the admimls to return with their fleets to Beyeos. The cause of this resolution was generally supposed to be the want of good harbour and the risks of the Euxino at this season. The ambassadors met in conference on Tuesday, in consequence of this informa- tion, and the Samson started for the Black Sea with their reply to the admirals, which, it was said, was to the follow- ing effect:— Tho ambassadors express surprise at the sudden resolu- tion of the admirals, more particularly at the present mo- ment, when a Turkish steam flotilla is on the point of start- in<>' with ammunition and other stores for the army of Ana- lia! The orders of the French and British Governments which reached this by the Caton, about ten days ago, were formal and precise, respecting the protectio>to be afforded bv the combined fleets to the Ottoman flag and territory, and the attention of both admirals again called to the striu- gent nature of these instructions, which had been duly Duti- fiedtothern. The admirals, it would appear, consider that the measures entrusted to their execution may be equally well effected, whether the force under their command be stationed at Boycos or Sinope. This is a matter which must entirely depend on their own judgment, and on them the responsibility will rest. The ambassadors decline to inter- fere in all matbrs connected with nauticd experience, and conlbe themselves mcreiy to those within the sphere of thdr poEtic:J.1 department. Hence tho wishes and sntentioils of their Governm8nts having been dllly 1íOlifiell to loth admi- rals, it only remains to conform strictly to them, and devise thosÇ) weans best cÜculated for their execution," .='¿'L"=" r The rumour of a enmbat before Batoum was without foun- dation, and took its origin, it would seem, in a strange lU. cident. Two English war steamers having been sent from Trebizond to Batoum, were received with cannon shots from the foriress. The steamers, much surprised at this reception, sent a boat to the town with a flag of truce, to learn the cause of such treatment. The Turkish commandant of Ba- toum stated, in explanation, that for some time the Russian vessels had endeavoured on several occasions to surprise the vigilance of the garrison, by hoisting a French or English flag on approaching the town. A telegraphic despatch from Constantinople, on tho 23rd January, says :— A successor to Omer Pacha will be appointed in case he should be seriously indisposed. "Three fresh convoys of troops and ammunition for the army in Asia will sail in a few days, under escort of a divi- sion of the combined fleet. The presence of the fleet iu the Black Sea has restored the courage of the Turkish population, and struck terror into the partisans of Russia. i The weather was constantly favourable, and the ships have returned to Beycos, none the worse for their cruise." According to advices from Giurgevo of the 23rd ult., the waters of the Danube were rising considerably. The coun- try adjacent to the banks is mostly overflowed. Tho islands near Giurgevo, Oltenitza, and Sirtow, which hitherto formed a basis of operations for the Ottoman troops crossing the river are quite inundidated at present. Advices from lvrajowa of the 25th, state that General Dannenberg is dangerously ill. Letters from Bucharest oi the 25th relate that the billet- ing of more troops from Bessarabia has been announced. It thaws constantly, and the movements of troops proceed slowly; with pieces of artillery of heavy calibre, three times the usual number of horses is needed to drag them through the mire. The latest advices from the scene of action con- tradict the report of the Turks having occupied Oltenitza. Letters from Constantinople of tho 19th ult. state that the former Minister of Police, Haireddin Pasha, lately ap- pointed Inspector-General of the Armies in Asia, left Oil the 18th for that destination. The departure of the new con. voy of troops and munitions of war for Asia was to take place on the 21st. The military reinforcements on board consisted of between 7,000 and 8,000 men. The English steamer Sidon, detached from the squadron of Admiral Corry, arrived at Constantinople on the 17th. Two others were expected. It was also said that, independently of the Vauban and Cacique, then on their way to Constantinople, two other French steam-frigates would shortly join the the squadron, the Cabinets of London and Paris having de- cided that tho number of those frigates should be equal at least, in both squadrons, to that of our ships of the line in order to take the latter in tow when circumstances re- quired. A letter from Trebizond mentions that a few days before the entrance of the combined fleets into the Black Sea, some Russian ships cannonaded a small fort situate on the neighbouring coast; but that, on being apprised by a Greek merchantman of the presence of the squadron at Sinope, they had hastened to weigh anchor, and disappeared. The Lieutenant-Colonel of Artillery, Beurmann, all attache of the French Embassy, and several foreign officers lately admitted into the Ottoman service, embarked on the 17th fur Yarna, whonce they were to proceed to the head-quar- ters at Shumla. The Sultan having heard that Omer Pacha had been of late indisposed, had sent to him with the permission of General Baraguay d'llilliera, Dr. Fauvel, who was at the same time to inspect the hospitals and the medical department of the army on the Danube, which, it appears, is anything but satisfactory. The Sultan had not yet fixed the day for his departure for Adrianople. The English and French Ambassadors were to accompany his Highness. The relations between Turkey and Persia had been re-established on the most friendly footing. ALLEGED FAILURE OP COUNT MISSION. Further received in Kngland, in regard to the de- termin.ition ot Austria :tnd Prussia as to the attitude they will assume ín the yrespnt struggle between llussia and Turkey confirms the intelligence given before, to the effect that Count Orloff's mis,ion to Vienna has as yet been un- successful. Count. Orloff demanded," says a telegraphic despatch, dated Vienna, Sunday," tlicit Austria should pledge herself to remain neutral under circumstances that might arise. The Emperor met this demand by asking for a pledge on the part of Russia with respect to the evacuation of the rineipaiities, and also for a promise that the Czar would not eioss the Danube, not- seek any increase of ter- ritory at the expense of Turkey. Count Orloff was unable to give any sucli undertaking and the Emperor, therefore, resen td to himst-ll full liberty to act as circumstances might dictate, with due regard to the interest and the dignity or Austria. Count Orioff's mission is not, however, concluded anJ it is understood that he will remain here 80me days longer, lie has, probably, instructions to make some olher pn pos.tls to the Emper ir; ùtt no one anticipates that his efforts will be attended by any SUCC:S8" Both thiaCourt and that otVienna," says a telegraphic couimunicHUon from Berlin, on Saturday, "have refused Count Orloff's demand for an uncondi'ional pledge of neu- 'rality. Neither Prussia nor Austria will undertake to lvmain neutra', in the event of the Cz r persisting in his projects agrinst Turkey, or seeking to extend his dominions ..t her exppn f". Prussia has expressed her refusal in very decided terms, and it is not improbable that still stronger language will be employed by the Austrian Go- vernment." Another despatch from Vienna states, that Austria de- clares that she will act against llussia, if the Czar cross the the Danube. If he does not, the German powers will re- main neutral, and in case of future negotiation, will endea- vOl1r tei proi ute any settlement, un thè. ;asi" <»1 the prwto. eols of Vienna Arbitration, i1 is said, and the King; of the Belgians h's been mentioned as the probable umpire. The answer of the Emperor Ni.-h das to the Tiukhh pro- posals adopted by the Vienna Conference has reached hotli Vienna and Berlin. He declares them to be quite un- satisfactory, that he will allow of no mediation between himself and Turkey, and Turkey, if she wishes to trCtt, may send an ambassador to St. Petersburgh. It is quite clear Austria and Prussia wish to dis- couraga the Cz-tr, and to induce him to a andoti his war- like policy, though they do not. opeiuv declare them- selves agains*. him. they do ali that they think M'ecessary to show their disapprobation of his policy It is evident from this that the policy 01 Prussia and Austria is one of reserve and expectation, though it is equaily clear that they are only waiting for a favourable opportunity to take part, if necessary, against Russia. It has escited surprise that Count Orloff should go to, and some difference of opinion exists as to the object of Li visit, theie. According to some, its object is to induce the King of Holland (the principal of the secondary maritime powers of Europe) to remain neutral; according to others, its object is to meet M. de Brunow and 11. de Kisseleff ou their quitting London and Paris. it is belieied that the negotiations of Count Orloff will be prolonged for several days. At present, his has only had the effect of strengthening 'he p sitictn of Count Buol, and diminishing the influence of Count Fiquelmont.
