Pre- < parations are being made at Kertch to resist the ) attack of a Turkish squadron, which the naval authorities are informed intend to bombard that fortress. Admiral Arkas has received the cross of Alexander Nevsky from the Cz»r in recognition of j his services in connection with the organisation of the Russian Black Sea Fleet. i' On the night of the 18th instant Colonel Panjutin was sent with the Eighty Regiment, eleventh rifle battalion, and two guas against a Turkish train which bad been observed by Russian scouts. Colonel Panjutin overtook the train twelve versts from Harmanli and found it escorted by six tabors of in- fantry aided by large numbers of armed inhabitants. After a severely contested engagement lasting two hours, the Turks were defeated and d ispersed, and the Russians captured the whole train consisting of 2000 waggons. The Russian loss was four officers and forty-six men. 8 There are immense stores of siege artillery ammuni- tion in and around the buildings of an old Roumanian monastery on the bank of the Danube above Simnitza. This collection of heavy projectiles is rather indica- tive of a serious intention to bpsiege the fortresses of the Quadrilateral; but the artillery operations around Plevns were not such as to furnish much encourage ment to attempt the reduction of positions protected by heavy Runs and well defended by earthworks; besidts which the process of masking or outflanking such positions has been found to be much more practi- cable.
