A maaa was celebrated at noon in the Winter Palace, in presence of the Lmperor and the Imperial family.

Thua anautharity so high aa the Mildar Wochenblatt of Borhn described that expedition aa embracing only 81 battaljoEa of infantry, from eight to niaa squadrona of cavalry, acd 21) gun@. Tie bot, howaver, is that the u'l8ia.n fj?ce3 emptoyed in that expedition comprised 16* battalioaa of in. fantry. 22 squadrons of cavalry, and 24. gina, and their defeat ie attributable, not to weakness in nnmbeM, but to bad generalahtp.
