have occupied the Danubian 1’rincip:il'nios for the last five months,
and the result ofthe occupation of the “ protecting " army is. what
was not believed in the commencement, that the‘ Moltlo-iValla-
ehians have a. horror of their protectors. The requisitions and the
bone payable at convenience (“ when circumstances permit") prove
the tender care which the defenders of the Orthodox faith have of
the goods and chattels of the protected, and the Autocrat whose
edicts, rousing all L p ' us ofa barbarous population, terminate
in blasphenious appeals to Heaven, does not sample to pillage the
helpless population that are cursed with such protection. As to
the Russian victories which were to terminate the quarrel instantly,
we have yet to wait for them; and not the least important result
from the liloldo-XVsllachi:in occupation is the superiority of the
Turks over their enemies, from the alrair of Oltrnitza up to the
present. The campaign has shown what the Tprkish soldiers can
made to do when well ollicered; and as to Dinar Pasha, he
has proved himself to be, not merely a man of untiring activity
and energy, but an admirable strategist, by the manner in which he
has distributed his forces throughout the long line he has to defend.
It is new evident that be thoroughly understands ths.t:ietica of the
ussian General, and has avoirled fading into the snare laid for
im by his enemy-a pitched battle, the loss of which would seri-
ously endanger the Ottoman Empire. It may be presumed that
Omar acha will, sooner or later, accept battle, but, if one ma
judge by the past, he will do so under circumstances the most
fivorable to himself, whether with reference to time or ground, and
the partial, and as yet autkzcssful, combats he has been engaged in
serve to accustom his men to face the enemy, and to prepare them
for a still grcatc-rolTort. The Hrst lesson wasgiven in their own
-entrenchnients at Olteuitza, and. they learned I!‘ so well that they A

live assertion in its u.i-ls correspondence, that Austria and Pru.-no
had addressed a joint note to Ennlnnd and France, demanding
explanations of the step taken in ordering the combined iicets into
the Black Sea, without their privity and concurrence, and giving
them to understand that they (Austria and Prussia) could take no
part in a course of action so prejudicial to all the pros ects of
ace. The state of the case is this : the Representatives o France
and England in Constantinople, after having communicated the
orders or their Governments to the respective Admirals, informed
the Representatives of Austria and Prussia of the step taken, an
of the instructions issued to both Admirals, adding that rcvious
‘ inrformation of this kind had been purposely withlield mm the
Austrian and Prussian Cabinets ‘and Repre-entatives, seeing that
lhev were arties only to the diplomatic steps taken towards a
pscihe m iation, and that it was England and France alone, as
naval Powers, whose deets were stationed in the Bosphorus for the
protection of Turkey, that were defied and challr-ngcrl hy the wan.
on attack on inope. On this, lirrr von Ivildenbruck merely
delivered in a note corroborvtting and recording the fact, that the
orders for entering the Black Sea had been issued to the combined
fleets without his previous cognizance. Baron Bruclt took no steps
at an in the matter. ‘There was thus no protest, no demand for ex-
planations, and nothing which interrupted the harmony pervading
the action of the four ltcpresrntattves.

refuge at an inn, where he was protected from his assailants. He
was compelled to remain there for several hours, and when he came

a verdict for defendants. All Irish readers and most American ones

of the World news per of Dublin, an infamous and a most un-
naniealvle black-ui ' spar. And Lord Clareudomthe Queen of

and odious attacks upon some few of his, Lord Clarendon's and
his rnistress's enemies. Birch for this honest work and labour was
paid $10,000 by Lord Clarendon. not however until afler he had
brought an action against his lordship. He afterwards brought an
action against the proprietors of the ltherman for libelling him and
injuring his fair ame. The argument of Monday 6th lasted a long
