All men remember the particularly straight-forward rpcceb o
Lord John Russell,vrhcn he declared the policy of Britain, and
hurled dedzince at the fziithlcss Czar. One would almost imagine
that his Lordship had worked up his own diminutive soul to a sort
of divine wrath: And certain it is, that British readers perusing the
speech were filled with pious horror against so cruel and false a
Czar, and thanked Godrllley were Bulls and not Bears.

The following is from the St. lhrerrburg Journal .- it is intended
as an answer to Lord I. Russell‘s dcliant speech ; and we think it
iv an answer. . >
“ ‘Ve have jua received a report of the sitting of the House if
Commons of the 17th of February, and the speech which Lord John
Russell made on that occasion. It is not here the place to repeat
brutal outrages of iv hich every fiilliful servant of the Iimpcror will

marking iliat the parliamentary annals might be searched in vain
for an example of such incl-mpcrate language from the mouth of a
Cabinet lllirlister in reference to a Sovereign against whom the
country of that minister has not yet declared war.
. f‘,Th:it this distrust might have been conceived by France, that
up to a certain oint it might have found a place in the mind of a
Government still recent, that had not yet time to acquire by a long
experience of our previous relations with it, on exact notion of our
true intentions, and which might yield involuntarily to the opinion
almost traditional that has been formed of Russian policy inthe
East, is very easily to be conceived. But the British Government
should have been the last to harbor such suspicious. It has in its
.ds thcoivritten proof, that they are based on no foundations.
For long before the present situation, bcforc the questions, which
ave been raised through the mission of Prince lllcnchikofl‘ to Cor.-
st.1.ntinople,had assumed as yet the character of serious dissent,
before Great Britain had placed herself on the same line of action
as France, the Emperor had spontaneously explained his iicwr
without the slightest reserve to the Queen slid hor ministcrs, with
the intent of establishing with them an intimate understanding
respecting even the greatest eventuality that might licfal the
Ottoman empire. some the year 1.929 his lllajvsty followed
with great attention the march of events in Turkey. e Em-
peror could not shut his eyes to the couscquencrs oi the tlmngei
which were, one aller the other, introcuced into that State.
Ancient Turkey disappeared from the time when it was sought to
establish those institutions diametrically opposed us wcll to the
genius of Islamism as to the character and us.-ige of the M ussulrnans
-institutions more or less borrowed from modern liberalism, and
consequently entirely opposed to the spirit of the Ottoman govern-
nt. It became evident that Turkey was undergoing s. complete
transformation, slid that these experiments, :it least doubtful so far
as regarded the re-organization of the empire, seemed rather calcu
lsted to lead to a crisis which would overturn it. It seemed likely
would at all events destroy that which existed.
“ To these permanent andincreasing causes ofdissolution rgcent
complications have been added, resulting from the allairs of Molt-
tenegro, the religious persecutions exercised in scvcral Christian
provinces, a dilieraice with the Austrian government, considerable
tinancial emhanzissment, rind astl , the important strait of the
Holy Places, to which the imperliuus demands of the Frcnch Am
hassador at Constantinople were beginning to give a serious and
menacing character. These complications, which created sullen
excitement among the Christian population, Wore likely from one
day to another to bring about a sudden catastrophe which it was
urgent to prevent.
“Penetratcd with the extreme importance of such a result, and
having at that period almost reached the region of the possible, if
not entirely of the probable-convinced of t e lsaslrous conse-
quences which might result from it, the Emperor thought it ne-
cessary to assure himself beforehand whether the En g-llbll govcrru
ment shared his apprehensions. He wished more particularly, by
a frank previous understanding, to remove every subject or me-
understanding belwecn Great Britain and himself. It seemed of
the highest importance to his Majesty to establish the. rnost per-
fect identity of views with the government of Great Britain.
“ VVith this view the Emperor engaged the English minister at
St. Pctersburg to cause her Majesty to be informed of ‘his anticl-
patient with respect to the danger, more or loss imminent. ill“
rnenaccd Turkey. He requested on this subject a cnnlidentllil
interchange of opinions with her Britannic Majesty. That was
certainly the most evident proof of confidence which the Emperor
could give to the Court of sz. lines; and thus did his M?J9“l'
