AFFAIKS OF TH E EAST. [From the Allgemeinc Zeilung of the tth.1 VIENNA, JUNE 6.âLetters from Trieste say that the accounts from the Levant, brought by the last steam boat, state that the Turkish troops had taken up a more advanced position beyond the Fiiphrales, but that there had not been any collision with the Egyptians. It is also SOlId tint a considerable Russian fled is near the Hosphorus, and that Russian agents are very actively employed in hiring merchantmen in all the ports of the Black Sea, whence it is inferred that a body of Russian troops may perhaps be landed on the Turkish Coast. The Journal of the Lloyd Ausu iuco has the following letter dated Alexandria, May 16 :â" Letlers from Aleppo of the 61h and from Beirout of the 13111 of this month, state that the Turk- ish army had advanced on the 3d in a body as far as Narib. Swarms of Kourds (notindc Arabs) had joined it. Ibrahim is concentrating his army in and about Aleppo, 35,000 infantry five regiments of cavalry, and two regiments of artillery were alrCldyassembled there on the 6th. Another regiment of the line and two regiments of guards were expected there on the same day. The frontier ol Mount Taurus is strongly fortified and defended by five regiments and a great body of irregular cavalry. The discipline and appearance of the Egyptian army are said to be admirable, and its subsistence amply provided for. Dolimnn Pacha issued on the 13th the following circular to the Consuls :â* As the Turkish army has interrupted Ihe commu- nication with the provinces on this side of the Euphrates, the Egyptian government is compelled to use reprisals, and most strictly prohibit the merchants of all nations in Syria from ha- ving any dealings with the Turks.' While the wailike attidude of both armies threatens every moment a sanguinary conflict, hopes of peace are agaio entertained here, chiefly in consequence of the decided language of the Consuls General of Russia and Austria." The lately-menlloned dispatches from Vienna and St. Petersburg, brought by the Piince Metternich, induced the Consuls to repair immediately to Chibin, in Lower Egypt, 10 confer with Mchemct A h. They were just setting out when they were informod by Bogos Mey that the viceroy was on his way to Alexandria, where he arrived on the 12th in the morn- ing, und was received wilh a salute of the artillery. Immedi- ately after his arrival conferences began between him and the Consuls, in consequence of which Mehemet Ali is said to have positively declared, though with great reluctance, that as soon as the Turkish army should return to its former position, he would withdraw the Egyptian army from the frontiers into the Pachalick of Damascus and rec.al Ibrahim l'acha to Egypt.
