REPULSE OF ROUMANIANS I BEFORE PLEVNA. CONSTANTINOPLE, Oct. 20.-Reports are cur- rent here that the Russians made an attack on Hevna. yesterday, but were repulsed. It is also asserted that the Turks have made a re- connaissance on the Roumanian bank of the Danube beyond the Island of Salgrine. The state of affairs in Armenia resulting from Ahmed Mukhtar Pasha's defeat is not regarded here as desperate. CONSTANTINOPLE, Oct. 20.—The Minister for Foreign Affairs has sent the following despatch to the Turkish representatives abroad: "Ghazi Osman Pasha telegraphs as follows:- On the 19th inst., at sunset, the enemy attacked our positions on the right of the line of battle, but was repulsed, as in former engagements, with considerable losses. The outposts continue at intervals to exchange musketry fire, supported by artillery fire. CONSTANTINOPLE, Oct. 20 (Evening).—Ghazi Osman Pasha telegraphs to the Seraskierate, under date 19th inst., as follows:—"To-day, the enemy attacked our positions at Rador on our right wing. The assault was made by a battalion of infantry, preceded by sappers, who attempted to plant gabions, but the attack was repulsed. Our projectiles exploded several ammunition magazines. The enemy con- tinued the cannonade. Yesterday the Russians made an attack upon our positions to the east of Plevna, but were repulsed." (RUSSIAN OFFICIAL DESPATCH.) RUSSIAN HEADQUARTERS, GORNY STUDEN, Oct. 20.-The Turks recaptured, on the evening of the 19th inst., a redoubt before Plevna which the Roumanians had on the same day taken. On the Lower Danube a body of Cossacks captured near Seilyk, on the road from Tchernavoda and Silistria, a Turkish transport consisting of one hundred waggons of provisions, escoited by a body of 150 men. Twenty-six Turks were cut down, 32 were taken prisoners, and the rest dispersed. On the 18th instant the Cos- sacks routed two squadrons of Turkish regular cavalry, killing seven of them and taking two prisoners. (FROM THE CORRESPONDENTSOFTHE OBSERVER.") BERLIN, Oct. 20 (7.43 p.m.). The Russian victory in Asia Minor is con- sidered in military circles here to be the turning point in the series of Russian reverses. Intelli- gence of a success in Bulgaria is confidently anticipated, in spite of the fact that the Turkish Government reports the repulse of the Russian left wing in an assault made last night upon Plevna. The bombardment still continues, and three Turkish redoubts upon the east and south- east of the place have been evacuated. The Roumanian troops have carried their ap- proaches to within twenty yards of the great Gravitza redoubt. Vigorous measures are being taken for the reinforcement of the Russian army. Orders have just been issued for the mobilisation of the whole of the batteries belonging to the army reserve. The Turkish Government has ordered the formation of a new force for Armenia; 20,000 V men will be despatched at once from Constan- tinople. The Governors of Sivas, Diarbekr, Mossul, and Bagdad have received orders to make a general levy of all the able-bodied men in their respective districts. According to the latest accounts Mukhtar I Pasha left Kars with the bulk of his army, and I retired in the direction of Erzerum. Kars will be completely invested by the Russians in a few days, The rails intended for the Fratesti-Simnitza railroad have been seized in Hungary as con- railroad have been seized in Hungary as con- trrband of war. CONSTANTINOPLE, Oct. 20 (4 p.m.) The reports of Mukhtar Pasha's disorderly retreat, with the loss of many guns and a whole division, are now said to be unfounded. The Grand Vizier has received a telegraphic despatch, stating that the Turkish general bad left Kars, and was occupying a good position, which would save Raschid Pasha from annihi- lation. Osman Pasha has received reinforcements amounting to several thousand men, and has just telegraphed to the War Office that he has repulsed a serious attack upon his right, inflict- ing a loss of several thousands in killed and wounded. The Turkish losses have not yet been ascertained. It was asserted this morning that the Rus- sians had evacuated the Shipka Pass.
