The HrHUIi Caltinct ItoolTcd to Act
ffcrald Cable. London. November lGtfa.
At a Cabinet Council to-day it was resolved to
act in regard to the Russian complication.
War is imminent!
Great popular indignation exists against Rus
Tribune cable. Lo.ndox, November 16th.
Tliere has been great excitement but no panic
to-day over the Russian news, in the Stock Ex
change and elsewhere. This Russian stp was
eo Ion? expected that the public was partly pie
pared for it. It is the form and peretnptoriness
of Russia's declaration which had- created sur
prise rather than the demand itself. Notwith
standing the warlike tono of the Times to-day.
great doubt was felt whether the English Gov
ernment would repel Russia's pretensions to ab
rogate by her own act, the treaty of 1856. The
Times waTbelieved tote attempting to lake the
reins of Government, as in 1854; but all doubt
will be dispelled to-morrow by the publication of
Granville's reply. The views expressed in this
note are ehared in and will be supported by Aus
tin, France and Italy, each of which sends a re
ply substantially identical, and will follow the
eamo lice of policy in this and all which follows.
It is stated on authority that I'rnssia's attitude
remains unknown, or at least the English Foreign
Office is unable to say what declaration may be
expected. Russell's mission was to hoU di
rect communication with liismarck ; but Russell,
when last heard from, had reached no further than
Sedan, having, by liurnsiile's atlvice, sought to
come to Versailles via Relgmm. At Sedan he
was buying horses and n carriage to proceed on
his journey. Communications with other Govern
ments have been free and cordial. There i noth
ing yet like talk about war, but the English Cab
inet is in no mood 'o be deterred by the pros
pect of a collision, in which, howevcr,it does not
believe. There is nobody here who says Eng
l.ind will not, in any cae, go to war ; and per
haps still more in the Continental Cabinets n
sense of the impossibility of permitting open dic

Gort5chakofT8 circular was unknown at the Amer

correspondence lias passed :
'FortEia.v Office, November 10, 1870.
"Earl Granville to Sir A. Iiucbanan, Dritish
Ambassador to St. Petersburg :
"Sir : Karon firnnnow made to me yesterday a
communication respecting the conversation be
tween the Emperor of Russia and the Saltan
with regard to the limiting of their naval forces
in the Black Sea by tho treaty signed at Paris on
the 30th March, 1 85C, to which you alluded in
your Jelegraut of yesterday afternoon. In my
dispatckof yesterday I gave you an ttccount of
what passed between us, nnd I now propose to
allude to Prince GortscbukofTs dispatches on the
19th anu 20th ult., communicated to me by the
Russian Ambassador. On that occasion Prince
Gortschakoff declared on the part of his Imperial
JIajcsty, that the treaty of 185C had been in-s
fringed on in various respects, to the prejudice
of Russia, aud more especially in the case of the
Principalities, against the explicit protest of his
representative, and that in consequence of these
infractions Russia is entitled to renounce those
stipulations of the treaty which directly touch
her interests. It is then announced that she will
no longtr be bound by the treaties which restrict
her rights of sovereignty in the Iilack Sea. We
hare here an allegation that certain facts hate
occurred which in the judgment of Russia are at
variance with certain stipulations of the treaty,
anil the assumption is made that Russia, upon the
strength of her own judgment as to the character
of those facts, is entitled to release herself from
certain other stipulations of that instrument.
'I'liis assumption is limited in its practical appli
cation to some of the provisions of tho treaty, but
the assumption of n right to renounce any one of
its terms, involves the assumption of a right to
renounce the whole. This statement is wholly
independent of the reasonableness or unreasona
bleness, on its own merits, of the desire of Rus
sia to be released from the observance ot the
stipulations of the treaty of 1856. respecting the
Iilack Sea: for the question is, in whose hands
lies the power of releasing one or more of the
parties from nil or any of these stipulations ? It
has always been held '.hat right belongs only to
he Governments who have been partie.3 to the
'1 he communication of. Prince Gortschakoff ap-"
pears to assume that any one of the Powers who
have signed the engagement may allege that oc
currences have taken place which, jn its opinion,
are nt variance with the provisions of the treaty,
and alihough this tiew is not shared nor admit
ted by the Cosigmiton Powers il may found up
on that allegation, not a request to those govern
ments for the consideration of the case, but an
announcement to them that it has emancipated
itself, or holds lUelf emancipated from every stip
ulation of the treaty which it thinks fit to disap
prove. But it is quite evident that the effect of
such a doctrine, and of any proceeding, which,
with or without avowal, is founded upon it, is to
bring the entire authority and efficiency of treat
ies under the discretionary control of each one of
the Powers who may have signed them ; the re
sult of which would be the entire destruction of
treaties in their essence ; for whereas the whole
object is to bind powers to one another, and for
tht3 purpose each one or the powers surrenders a
portion of its free agency by tbe doctrine and
proceeding now in question, one of the parties in
its separate and individual capacity, brings back
the entire subject into its own control and re
mains bound only to itself. Accordingly Prince
Gortschakoff has announced in those dispatches
tbe intention of Russia to continue to observe
certain of-the provisions of the treaty. However
satisfactory this may be in itself, it is obviously
an expression of tbe tree will of that Power, which
it might at any time alter or withdraw, aud in
this il is open to the same objections as the other
portions of tbe commnnicati' ecausc It implies
the ngbt of Russia to annul treaty on tbe
ground of allegations of which she consritntes
herself the only judge. Tbe question, therefore
arises, not whether any desire expressed by Rus
sia ought to be carefully examined in a friendly
spirit by the co-eignatory Powers, but whether
they are to accept from her the announcement
that this is her own act. Without any consent
from them she has released herself from af solemn
covenant. I need scarcely say that her Majesty's
Government have received ' this commnnifation
with deep regret, beca&e it open's a .'discosaon
which might nnsettle the cordial understanding 't
has been their earnest endeavor to maintain with
the Russian Empire : and for the above men
tioned reasons it is impossible for her Majesty's
Government to give any sanction, on their part
to the course announced by Prince Gortschakoff.
If instead of such a declaration the Russian Gov
ernment had addressed iler Majesty's Govern
ment and the other powers who are parties to
the treaty of 1856, and had proposed for consid
eration with them, whether anything ha3 oc
curred which could be held to amount to an in
fraction of the treaty .or whether there is any
thing in the terms which from altered circum
stances, presses with undue severity upon Rus
sia or which in tbe course of events had become
unnecessary for the due protection of Turkey. Iler
.Majesty's Government wonld not have refused to
examine the question in concert with the co-sig-nersito
the treaty. Whatever might have been
the result of such communicationr, a risk of fu
ture complications and n very dangerous" prece
dent as to tbe validity of international obligations,
would have been avoided. I am, etc,
"P. S. You will read this dispatch and give a
copy of it to Prince Gortschakoff.

Tho following is the despatch of Prince Gorts
schakolT to Baron Brunnow, communicated by
Baron Brunnow to Earl Granville, on the 9th of
November, and referred to in the second para
graph of Earl Granville's dispatch:
Tzarkoksfjj3, Oct. 20th.
Rahox: In making the communication to the
principal Secretary of State of Iler Britanic
Majesty, presented to you by tbe orders of His
Majesty, the Emperor, you will be good enough
to make its import and object clearly understood
' When, at the commencement of the year 1866, a
conference was talked of for the purpose uf pre
venting the war then imminent in Germany, by
the assembling of a congress for discussing the
basis of it with Earl Russel, you were able to
point-out certain eventualities of a nature calcu
ted to modify the slaiuo quo existing in the east,
would be rendered necessary to Russia. This
was recognized by him with the utmost fairness,
he did not deny that every alteration affected in
the east and the spirit of the treaty of 1856,
must lead to the tevision of that document. Al
though thcse'eventuolities have not been realized,
Earl Granville will not deny that the treaty has
suffered grave modifications in one of its essen
tial parts. That which cannot but impress Rus
sia in those modifications, is not tbe f.Hti'.ious
and hostile tendancy towards her of which tbey
bear tho stamp it is not tbe consequences that
may result to a great country front the establish
ment on her frontier -of a small independent
State : It is above all Ihe facility with which, ten
years after its conclusion, a solemn transaction,
invested with an European guarantee, can bo in
fringed in its letter nnd spirit, uuder tho eyes of
tho very power which ought to bu it3 guardian.
In the proseuco of such a precedent, what value
can Russia attach to the efficacy of this agree
ment, and to the guarantee of tho Security that
she believed she bad found In the principle of the
neiilliziliun of the Black Sea. The equilibria
urn established in the East, therefore, is destroy
ed to the detriment of Unasia, and tho resolution
taken by our August Master is to re-establish it.
Iler Britannic Mujesty's Government would
never consent to leave the security of its coasts
to the mercy of an agreement which is no longer
respected, anil it is too just not to recognize that
we have the same duties and the same rights.
But what wo especially desire to establish is that
this decision implies no change in the policy
which His Majesty, the Emperor, follows in the
Bat. You have several times already been
made to enter into explanations with the Cab
inet of London, upon the general views the two
Governments bold upon this important question,
and to point out a conformity of principles and
of interests, which we have noted with much
Wo have decided, therefore, that it i3 neither
from England or from Russia that danger can
come which could threaten tho Ottoman Empire ;
that the two Cabinets have an equal desiro to
maintain its existence as long as possible by tho
conciliation of the differences between the Porte
and the Christian subjects of the Sultan ; and that
in caso a decisive crisis should occnr.nolwitbstand
ing these efforts, both aro equally resolved to ask
the solution, nbova all in a general agreement of
the powers of Europe. Wo have not ceased to
entertain these views. We believe that their
complete analogy renders a serious 'tnisnuder
sianding impossible between Iler Britannic Ma
jesty's Government and onrs. Wo attach the
ntmost value to it as the best guarantee for pre
serving the peace and the equilibrium of Enrope,
from the dangera which may result from compli
cations in the East.
By order of His Majesty the Emperor, Yonr
Excellency is authorized to reiterate the assur
ance of this to Lord Granville. We shall sincerely
congratulate ourselves it the frankness of these
explanations should contribute to it, by removing
all possibility of a misunderstanding, between her
Majesty's Government and ours. 1 am, etc.,
A ctiABMiNo story is told by a foreign corres
