RUSSIAN REPULSE AT BATOUM" The itu'ly T' l' jrapii correspondent at Iiatoum, writing on Wednesday, says :—Yesterday morn. ing the llrisgians advancod in great force, and at. tempted to place artillery on the heights between Konaeton and the portion of the Turkish camp commanded by AH Paaha. With the object of covering their infantry attack, the enemy openod a heavy cannonade, an artillery fight ensued, which ¡",t.d for some time. Presently the Russians bepan, in great masses, to descend tlio iace of t' e hills, with the viow of turning the Turkish fortifications by attacking onr position. Ali I'aaha, seeing the intention of the Em- siaii commander, made a forward movement, under "oyer of the firo of the Turkish batterie-i. A ■.angiiinary battle ensued. Uur guus played iurionsly and effectively upon the Russian in. tiintry ak, they descended the hill, making jjreit havoc. in their ranks. The Turkish infantry ■jiiglit admirably, their fire being very destrue- *ivo. Notwithstanding the large force which the Kussiar.* brought to the attack and the persis- n r.cy with which it was made, against the galling jre of the (ittoman artillery and infantry com- uu.^d. they were ultimately repulsed, leaving %rc-at uumbertt of dead and wounded on the <•'round. The engugemeut lasted ten hours, duro wcit-h time several, combats took place. A TURKISH SUCCESS IN ASIA MINOR. 1'\r- 1' "I" 'crolm1 °n Wednesday, th» /'o.<.t<.tx/rn;J.corrM()ondGnt states'—A most imi,tar,t engagement has t?en ptMe noM Kara- '?- A column from th?

Meanwhile Mehemet Paaha, liaviug brought up reinforoements, took the- .Uuxsutns on the Hank, and attacked them with "licU vigour that they were utterly defeated, and were obligod to retreat to Tashliohai. The ltlls. oau right wing is at Penek. The Ottomans hold 'lti. where they are in strong force and well on. trencbed. l fie news that the Circassian and other Maho- inoaaii Irroguliira have been "rit back is con. ¡ turned both from Ibraila and Galatz. From the latter place alone some 80 waggon loads of them have been sent to KischeneS. According to one version they refused to tight, and wanted to desert. According to another it has only been their many breaches of discipline whica have caused their removal from the first liuo. We hear, says the Stamford, from Soukhoum "Kale that after much fighting the Kussiaus have been forced to abandon a fori about eight hours' distance from Soukhoum Kale, and have retired through the mountain into the interior. There is a great agitation amongst the mountaineers against the Russians. +Irom Constantinople, writes the Vienna corres- pondent of the 1 ■>, tho disoovery is announced great 1 ^na to havo aimed ,t °"?'°? le. ?' ?"? opposition, not only of ?he Scji?n, but the removal of the whole dyr?Hty All tlie announcement is more r less official, it is iict easy to say how muoh of it may be truth and now touca exaggeration.
