THE FUTURE RELATIONS OF RUSSIA AND TURKEY. The Vienna correspondent of the Timet, writing o i March 11th, says: Apart from the fact whether or not the Russian Government itself has been in- formed of the exact conditions which its Plenipo- t tntiary deemed himself authorised to agree to, and tpart also from the question, repeatedly asked, v. ether, besides the general conditions, there are ot certain specific stipulations with Turkey, it may be supposed that, in spite of the "l)i')Øt active telegraphic communication between San 3'. ifano and St. Petersburg, only the personal r port of General Ignatieff and. what Reouf Pasha may bring from the Sultan will really place the Cabinet of St. Petersburg in a position to know pre- cisely what the; future relations between Russia and x urkey are likely to be in consequence of the prelimi- nary treaty just conducted. The matter is of no alight importance, even with regard to the Congress itself; for if the Russian? can reckon on Turkey as- luming solidarity with them in respect of the stipu- lations made p t San Stefsno, the position of Russia at the Congress will be rather different from what it would be were the Turks to decline such mutual responsibility, and even eventually side with whoever might nise objections to any of the terms extorted from them. International law, it- is true, has never decided how far an agreement sub- mitted to by any Power under the pressure of a threat to life or limb may be regarded as binding, and it would still be rather awkward for Russia were she ultimately, either directly or indirectly, to meet with opposition on the part of Turkey at the Congress. It is, therefore, of some importance to the Czar to know precisely how he is to stand with the Sultan, as it may even have some influence on the decision of Russia as to how far Turkey might and ought to be admitted as an equal to the coming Congress. It would not be surprising, there- fore, if Russia, before finally fixing a day for the meeting of the Powers, desired to make quite sure on t tia point. On the other hand, the contention of Eng- land that it should be recognised as a principle that 3Very one of the stipulations made between Russia and Turkey is competent to be discussed by the Congress nay equally contribute to make Russia rather hesitate about fixing a day of meeting.
