WAR NEWS The following telegrams are from the Special Corre- spondent of the Siandard BUCHAREST, Sunday. After a bombardment of Plevna by the Roumanians, extending over two days, two regiments of the Third Division took a fortified position of the Turks by assault yesterday. The Roumanians had one man killed and thirty wounded. The result of the att.ick at other points is not yet known, and the struggle is still going on along all the Russo' Roumanian line. The fire of their artillery is very well kept up. The official Moniteur of Roumania says that this great attack took place in the presence of the Emperor. All the Roumanian troops, it adds, especially the artillery, cem- ported themselves with both the courage and coolness of veterans. The head-quarters of Prince Charles will be established near Plevna on the occasion of the general attack which will take place, it is said, shortly. ADRIANOPLE, Sunday. On Friday, at daybreak, the Russians opened an attack on Plevna with a furious fire from eighty guns which pro- duced no effect whatever, being duly answered by forty Turkish guns. The Russians abstained from front attacks, and their vigorous efforts to turn Osman Pasha s right were repulsed by artillery fire, and continued until night set in. The cannonade was renewed at five this morning. The result of to-day's fight is not yet known. It is reported from a Turkish source that the Russian in- fantry have not appeared to much advantage in their attacks on Plevna. The Turkish losses yesterday were slight. Reinforcements are still being forwarded to Osman Pacha. Forty-three Bulgarians have been hanged within two days.
