According to letters fro n Berlin, Dresden is to be the city where peace hegofiations are to be carried on. Other accounts state, that though nothing has been decided upon in this respect, London or Paris is the more likely spot where the discussions will takep!ace.

M. Secbach was estre'ne!y intimate with the Emperor Nicholas and the Emperor A'cxander witnessed when very vouri,, the friendship which hia f&i:her maintained with that statesman. The latter was received at the palace immediately after his arrival at St. Peters- burg, which city he hsd not visited for nianv years. On seeing him the Emperor exc].ji:ncd, What ,rave events have passed since we last saw each ollici- l' and then threw hnnself tuto his victor's arms.

In speaking of hi. father tears ran do'.vn his cheeks. But, recovering h;mse!f with a dignity tru!y imperial, he observed, 'But, we have to spca'. of more senoua matters.
