WAR NEWS- CONSTANTINOPLE, Sept. l. The Porte bas published the following despatch from his Excellency Mehemet All Pacha:—" On the morning of the 30th of August, in consequence of the offensive movements effected by the troops from Rasgrad ana Sari Nassoulilar, a desperate battle was fought in the neighbourhood of the village of Kara llassalllar. After this village had been successively captured and recaptured the Imperial army remained master of the field of battle. The enemy was com- pletely defeated, and was pursued by our troops, who inflicted great losses upon him, and completed his rout. Towards evening two columns detached from the camp of Sari Nassoulilar crossed the river Lom and forced the Russians, after a violent artillery and musketry engage- ment, to abandon the villages of Haider and Agaz and fall back upon that of Wow. Our troops took from the enemy a gun, four ammunition wag¡,¡ons, 2,000 rifles, the same num- berof great coats, some uniforms, and other articles of equip- ment; as well as a certain number of carts containing bis- cuits. The Russian losses exceed 4,000 men hors de combat ours are relatively inconsiderable." RUSSIAN HEAD-QUARTERS (GOKNJI STUDEN), Aug. 31. (Russian Official Dispatch.) "The Turks yesterday attacked the advanced guard of the Rustchuk column, which fell back from Sadiona, Kara Hassankoi, and Haydarkoi upon our principal position. General Leonoff telegraphs at three o'clock this after- noon that several Turkish attacks had been heroically re- pulsed. A second dispatch reports that yesterday's engagement at Kara Hassankoi between our advanced guards and the Turks was a severely contested affair. General Leonoff held his ground for twelve hours against twelve thousand Turks, with a far inferior force. The village was six times taken and retaken but at length General Leonoff found himself compelled to retreat step by step. He reached head quarters at eight o'clock in the evening, bringing all wounded, four hundred in number, with him. "From an early hour this morning the Turks have been concentrating in strong force at Gudowa and Popkoi. At the same time eight Turkish battalions, accompanied by a cavalry detachment, assembled on the road between Rustchuk and Rasgrad and commenced advancing towards Kadikoi. So further details have yet been received. At nine o'clock this morning a strong Turkish force from Plevna attacked our positions at Pelischat and Sclaitza. A heavy cannonade, with musketry tiring, was proceeding at ten o'clock this morning. "All is quiet in the Shipka Pass, apparently in conse- quence of the unsuccessful attacks made by Suleiman Pacha during several days upon the positions of the Russian troops, who continue, as before, to hold the pass."
