TURBULENT RUSSIA. w MARTIAL LAW IN POLAND. A message from St. Petersburg says the first sitting of the newly-constituted Cabinet took place on Saturday under the presidency of Count Witte. A long omcial communique has been Issued denying that the disorders in any part of the country were fomented by the Government, and promising a most careful in- quiry into the outrages against life and property, and the adoption of measures to prevent their recurrence. The Council of Ministers, says the communique, is therefore ready to execute the Imperial command to tb6 utmost of their ability, and appeals to the reasonable and thinking por- tion of the nation to assist it in its work of reform. A serious application of reforms will only be possible when the country is paci&ed and tranquil. The Government categorically declares that all the measures it has taken have been exclusively for re-establishment of order and peace. The communique concludes that the Council of Ministers, which on Saturday entered on its functions, will devote all its efforts to the realisation of the Czar's Ma.nife.sto. With the approval of M. Witte, the Minister of Justice is drafting a scheme by which Sena- torial inquiries will be made in those placea where there have been antisemitic outbreaks, the reports on the investigations being after- wards submitted to the Council of Ministers. It is announced that during the disorders at Kroonstadt the sailors on the warships in the roadstead maintained perfect discipline, readily obeying thei.r oSicera, and showing not the least inclination to joi.n the mutineers. The town is now quiet; the machine-guns have been withdrawn from the streets, and fewer soldiers are to be seen. The surrender of arms by the mutineers still continues. By order of the Minister of Marine the mutineers will be sent for a lo.ng sea voyage under special conditions. The authorities are taking vigorous measures to recover the storea pillaged during the dis- orders. The Admiralty headquarters staff states that no officer was wounded in the riots. An Imperial Ukase proclaims martial law in all the six governments of Poland. The ukase proclaiming martial law has caused great sur- prise and exasperation in Warsaw. It is seriously apprehended that this step will pro- voke worse disturbances than have already oc- curred. The, city is panic-stricken, as the rumour that the Russians are prepari.ng anti- Jewish riots is still circulating persistently. Many houses are barricaded and guarded night and day. The Jews are arming themselves with knives, revolvers, and ri6es. Owing to the general strike, the distress increa.&es from hour to hour. There is a scarcity of coal and food, and the populace are tearing down fences to uae as fuel, and are robbing the peasants who come to market. At nine o'clock on Sunday evening, in Os- trowiecka-stMet, a patrol of infantry, seeing a crowd of Jews standing in front of a house, fired a volley without any provocation, seriou&ly wounding eight men. The Governor-General of Warsaw has ordered the troops to take pos- session of all stores of coal in the town, in order to deprive the population of fuel. and compel the .strikers to return to work. Privy Councillor Elingenberg, the Governor of MohiIeN, was wounded on Sunday by two revolver bullets. fired by the wife of a municipal councillor named Czeraky. The crime was committed i.Q the Governor's reception-room, to which the as- sailant had obtained admission by assuming the nattM- of BMOMSs Meindorf. Mmo. Czeraky waa arrested. News has been received from Kishinen that on Friday night the prisoners in the gaol there r revolted en masse, demanding to be set free. On this b.ei.ng refused, they set fire to the gaoL Troops Were hurried up and opened Ure on the mutineers, of whom twenty-two were killed and many wounded. A telegram to the Petit Parisien" from St. Petersburg says:—"The town of L-obozor, in Bessarabia, has been completely destroyer by rioters. Large numbers of the inha-bitants have been killed, and the rest are without shelter." .N ——————
