ENGLAND, AUSTRIA> AND THE PORTE. The Agence H*vas P«bliah es a statement from Con- stantinople that Austria, like England, has declared to the Porte it cannot allow peace to be made without her acquiescence as one of the signataries of the Treaty of Paris, but nothing has here transpired about any such fresh intimation on the part of this Govern- ment, which would be but a repetition of what was said already 1Q.1'a telegraphic reply to the Turkish Circular. -^V^ria, therein, as may be remembered, while declining ag a neutral to mediate between the belligerents, reserved the right, as one of the Guaranteeing Powers, to intervene for the pro tection of her own interests and have a voice in thQ final settlement. When that voice is to be raised will naturally depend on the courae of the negotiations between Turkey and Russia; but at a time when these negotiations have not even begun, it does not seem likely that Aus'ria will raiae her voice merely to re- peat what she has declared once already. If, there- fore, Austria really found herself impelled to say something at this juncture of affairs, it certainly was not exactly what she is supposed to have uttered.
