THE RUSSIAN REPLY TO ENGLAND. The London Gazette has just published the fol- lowing dispatch as communicated to Earl Russell by the Russian Ambassador at this Court:— PRINCE GOBTSCHAKOFF TO EARON BSUXNOW. (Translation.) Tsarkoe-Selo, Aug. 26 (Sept. 7), 1863. Lord Napier has, by order of his Government, communicated to me a dispatch from Lord Russell, of which your Excellency will find a copy hereunto annexed. It is in answer to my dispatch of the 1st (13th) July last, which you were invited to communicate to the Principal Secretary of State of her Britannic Majesty. The overtures which we had set forth in that document were dictated to us by the desire to arrive at an understanding. In receiving the observations which they had suggested to Lord Russell with the attention which we always pay to the opinions of her Britannic Majesty's Government, we cannot but regret that we must come to the conclusion that we have not attained the end which we had proposed to ourselves. From the moment that this discussion could only end in establishing and in confirming the diverg- ence of our views it would be too contrary to our ,iii, conciliatory disposition for us to seek to prolong it; and we believe that in this we are not acting at variance with the sentiments of the Principal Secretary of State of her Britannic Majesty. We prefer to fix our attention only upon the essential points of his dispatches, upon which we' find ourselves agreed, at least in intention. Her Britannic Majesty's Government desire to* see promptly re-established in the kingdom of Poland a state of things which absll'restore tran- quillity to that country,, repose to. Europe, and security to the relations of the Cabinets. We entirely share- in this desire; and all that can depend upon us shall be done to-realise it. Our august master continues to be- animated by the most benevolent intentions towards Poland, and by the most conciliatory towards- all foreign Powers. To provide for the welfare of his subjects of all races asd of every religious conviction is an obligation wMebhis1 Imperial Majesty has accepted before God, his conscience, and his people. The Emperor devotes all his solicitude to ths fulfilment I of that obligation. As regards the responsibility which may be As regards the responsibility which may be assumed by his Majesty in his international re- lations, those relations are regulated by public right. The violation of these fundaments! princi- ples can alone involve responsibility. Our* august ples can alone involve responsibility. Our' august master has constantly re3pected and observed those principles with regard to other States. His Majesty has the right to expect and to claim the same respect on the part of the other Powers. You will be pleased to read'; and give a copy of this dispatch to the Principal Secretary of State of her Britannic Majesty.—Receive, &c.
