.fc. I, ââ' â " THE PASSAGE OF THE DANUB BY THB RUSSIANS. The Times, in a. leader, coaftneating upon the cross- ing of tho Danube by the Russian army, observes that the operation is of the, very highest importance, and from this moment theinterest in the events of the campaign will be extreme. The Turks explain the Eassage into the Dobrudscha as a movement permitted y themselves. According to this representation they have abandoned for strategical reasons the defence of the tract between the Lower Danube and the sea. They have left Matchin, Isaktchi, Tultcha, and the rest with slender garrisons, for they consider the places hardly worth preserving. The Russians are welcome to the Dobrudscha, but when they are in it the Serdar will make it difficult for them to come out. for the Turks have fortified the line of Trajan's Wall, from Tcheruavoda to Kustendji, and the intruder must either remain in his uninviting and useless conquest or fix the trestles and boats once more to return to the side he has quitted. According to this view, the strength of the Turkish position is formed by Rustchuk and Silistria, Shumla and, Varna. It is on the higher course of the Danube that the real passage must be made, and here the Turks will not so readily allow the operation to succeed. On this point we shall probably not have to wait long for information. What is to be done will probably be done suddenly, and it cannot be much longer delayed. Supposing the Russian army established on the Bulgarian side of the Danube, we may suppose that the summer will not have passed away before the issue of the contest has been practi- cally determined.
