OBSTINATE RUSSIA. No Abatemr'ii, of her Claims. Colonial Secretary's Speech, The Government of the (tear appears to be making no abatement of her claims with regard to the treatment of nentrals alleged to be carrying contraband or as to the e\ a- sion of the treaty stipulations concerning the passage of the Dardanelles. The official communication from St. Petersburg is yet awaited, but messages from inspired sources set forth that the Czar's Government claim that Russia, is justified in: — 1. Sinking or burning foreign ships carrying contraband when it is impossible to convey those ships to a Russian pc rt. 2. In passing ships through the Dar- danelles under the commercial flag and in hoisting the war flag at sea. The attitude of France and Turkey adds to the uncertainty of the situation. A Lloyd's report from Perim states that two steamers of the Volunteer Fleet were passed and one hoisted the French flag; whilst a St. Petersburg wire says that Russia has secured Turkey's permission for the mining vessel Duna to pass the Dar- danelles for the Far East. COLONIAL SECRETARY ON THE CRISIS. Mr. Lyttelton, speaking at a gathering of the British Medical Association at Leaming- ton on Saturday, said that, as regards our foreign relations, the present was a period of great anxiety. Obviously the first duty of the Ministers of the Crown was to ?ssert with firmness the rights of the citizens of this country, and to protect, as far as pos- sible, their lives and property. It was right to remember that, in doaling with any foreign country, it was .ight to credit her with the desire to act in a friendly and pacific spirit towards us, and, secondly, it was right to use no such h n- guage in any remonstrance that might have to be made which would enlist upon the side of unauthorised aggression the honour of the Government which had not sanc- tioned those acts.
