The Standard's Paris cor- respondent, too, is informed that the attempt of the Russians to induce the Sultan to set at nought the claims of England has utterly collapsed. Tuesday's telegrams from Constantinople give a contradiction to the rumour about an impending .Ministerial crisis there. There is, however, still considerable excitement in Stamboul on account of the expected arrival of the British squadron in Turkish waters. The Porte has telegraphed to Musurus Pacha on the subject, instruct- ing him to ask for information from Lord Salisbury. The Standard Constantinople correspondent telegraphs that Sir H. Layard is about to have an interview with the Sultan on the subject of the expected arrival of the English fleet in Turkish waters. Public opinion in Stamboul is still much excited by the action which has been taken by England, and bitter language is used by the newspapers. Count Zichy, the Austrian Ambassa- dor to the Porte (whose resignation of that post is now I certain), has arrived at Constantinople on his return, and is expected to give to the Sultan assurances of the friendly feeling entertained by Austria. According to a Renter's telegram from Constantinople, Sir H. Layard has semi-officially suggested the appointment of Baker Pacha, as Governor of Erzeroum, but Sawas Pacha, while declaring this to be impossible, offered to make him English commander of the Armenian Gendarmerie. The Russian newspapers consider that the demand made by the British Government constitutes a change of policy on the part of England, which would now undertake the defence of the Christians against the Turks. THE ENGLISH FLEET.—Admiral Hornby has been in- structed to take his squadron into Turkish waters by the 8th inst. and the fleet is likely to winter at Vourla or in Besika Bay. RUSSIA. THE MANUFACTURE OF ARMS.—The State manu- factories in Russia have been ordered to suspend all private contracts, and that they are busily employed in the manufacture of arms for the Government; as also are the arsenals, where the men are at work day and night. THE DEFEAT BY THE TURCOMANS.—The Berlin Correspondent of the Standard telegraphs particulars of the battle of Geok Tepe and the action of the Russian force sent against the Tekke tribes, after it became known that General Lazareff was dead. It seems that General Lomakin determined to march without loss of time, but the progress of the troops was slow, and it was September 8, ere they arrived before the fortifications of Denghil Tepe. It is not true, as has been stated, that the attack on the place was made by the Russian van only, for the van was assaulting the outworks of the principal fort when the main body arrived. There- upon most of the Turcomans retired from the outworks into the fort, which the van failed to take, notwith- standing a long assault. The main force was therefore ordered into position, but was received with a severe infantry fire. A charge followed, and then the defenders rushed out and slaughtered the Russians with the broadsword and pike. SPAIN. The Spanish Cortes re-opened on Monday, when it was announced by Marshal Martinez Campos that the King had resolved to marry the Archduchess Christine, in the conviction that the union would tend to promote the welfare of the country. THE FLOODS.—The news from Spain is still of dis- astrous gales and floods. Three provinces in the north- east have been seriously injured by the rise of the Ebro; and in the south, where the first disaster occurred, the rural districts and some towns are again under water. In Almeria sixty more persons have been drowned, forty houses destroyed, and fifteen hundred men have been thrown out of work by the flooding of the mines. ITALY. TRIAL FOR MURDER.—The extraordinary trial for murder which has been occupying the Assize Court at Rome for a considerable time came to a close on Friday. Signora Fadda, the wife of a captain in the army, had formed an improper intimacy with a circus rider named Cardinali, and she induced him to murder her husband. They were found guilty by the Jury. Cardinali was sentenced to death, and the woman to hard labour for life. INDIA. THE MISSION FROM BURMAH.—We learn by telegraph from Thyetmyo that the object of the Mission from Burmah is understood to be to re-establish diplomatic relations with England. The Embassy is still detained there pending the sanction of the Chief Commissioner to their going on. A European lady has been permitted to have an interview with the King, who stated that if attacked he should defend his frontier, but would offer no further defence. He thinks the English too im- patient in their demand for a revision of the treaty with his father. ZULULAND. We learn by telegraph from Madeira that Zululand is quiet, but the Transvaal is in a very excited and dis- contented state. It is confirmed that Colonel Lanyon has been ordered with the 1st Dragoons to Middleburg. where the Boers had interrupted the proceedings of a magistrate. According to another message from Algoa Bay these Boers are reported to have proclaimed a Re- public. Moirosi is receiving reinforcements and it is said was resolved upon attacking our camps. THE AFGHAN WAR. General Roberts has received information from Yakoob Khan that there are buried in Cabul about nine lacs of rupees, which belonged to the mother of Abdullah Jan, Shere Ali's favourite son. Soldiers have been set to work to discover this treasure if possible. Order is being restored along the Khyber route. The Shutargardan has been abandoned. Our troops are, in the villages through which they pass, collecting in kind the unpaid taxes which were due to the Ameer, and the stores thus obtained will be very acceptable for the use of our forces. The Ameer's treasure, which he was ordered to make over, was taken possession of on Saturday. It amounts probably to eight lacs. Accounts received prove that he seized nine lacs from Abdullah Jan's mother. The chief men of Cabul proper up to the Surkhab river, having received the proclamation of the British Administration from General Roberts, have notified their complaisance and are expected here, as are also the chief men about Tazin and Asmatullah Khan, the head of the Khyber tribe of Ghilzais, who had refused, pleading bad treatment after the Gandamak Treaty by the Ameer, who confiscated his property in defiance of the second clause of the Treaty.
