PEACE OF EUROPE. SECRET TREATY BETWEEN FRANCE AND RUSSIA. A Dalziel's telegram from Paris says:—The "Figaro" asserts that the object of all the atten- tion at Kiel is the alliance between France and Russia. People would see there, not Europe controlled by Germany, but divided into two distinct, not to say threatening, camps. The whole signiiicance of the fetes lies in the fact that the French and Russian squadrons had entered Kiel -side by side. France could now turn her eyes toward the future, which was full of promise, not to say reparation The "G-aulois" thinks that now the French and Russian lfeets have entered Kiel Harbour to- gether, while M. Felix Faure was being handed the Collar of St. Andrew in the name of the Czar. the Franco-Russian alliance is absolutely necessary, unless the two nations want to make themselves look ridiculous. For over twenty years France and Russia, had been courting one another, and four years ago they exchanged engagement rings, and since then Franco had filled up 'the wedding tray with presents. If, therefore, the treaty were never concluded the Government might rightly be charged with a want of skill. According to a provincial news- paper, which professes to derive its information from an important member of the Diplomatic Corps, a treaty of alliance already exists be- tween France and Russia. It was signed by the Grand Duke Constantine, in the name of the CZad, and by M. Carnot, on behalf of the French Republic. The document had -never been submitted to the French Chamber, at the express wis-h of the late Czar, who wanted to have nothing to do with the House of Lawyersi" as he called it. The treaty, there- fore, was somewhat irregular, and M. Carnot, had hesitated to overstep his constitutional powers in signing it, but ultimately lie per- mitted himself to be persuaded to do so from In_ patriotic motives. The "Matin" states that for the future the name of Kiel will be united to those of Cron- stadt and Toulon. Indeed, the present Franco- Russian demonstration in a German port was more significant and more sensational tJlan those which preceded it in France and Russia, because it took puace before the eyes of the German Emperor, the Princes of the Triple Alliance, and the fleets of the whole world. The "Laaterne" says:—"The French went to Kiel for the express purpose of showing the Germans how closely the French and Russian flags were united, and to give the Germans an opportunity of getting used to the spectacle." The "Intransigeaiit," believes that it can be taken for granted that there is no alliance between Fiance and Russia, so long as the fact- is not allowed to be proclaimed in the Russian newspapers. The language used on Monday, when the President of the Republic received the Czar's dec-oration, did not give the slightest trace of an alliance, and wa.s exactly similar to that used to M. Carnot- and Marshal Macmahon. From this it could be concluded that the posi- tion of the two countries, as far as an alliance was concerned, was the same in 1895 as in 1874. ARRIVAL OF ENGLISH M P.'S. A Central News telegram from Copenhagen on Tuesday says:—The Glasgow steamer Clan Matheson has arrived at Copenhagen.

A Reuter's telegram from Paris on Tuesday says :—President Faure yesterday despatched the following telegram to the Emperor of RussiaBaron de Mohrenheim ha.s just handed to me the Order of St. Andrew, which your Majesty has been so gcod as to confer upon me. Deeply affected by new pledges of friend- ship which your Majesty has this day given to France in my person, I desire to express to you, without delay, my sincere gratitude.—Signed, Felix Faure.
