War between Itussla and Turkey is
now a settled fact. The Czar's mani
festo to the Ilassian army and people
was promulgated on Tuesday, and the
army was at once put under marching
orders. The Turks are also on the
move, and that a bloody battle will be
fought soon is no longer a matter of
doubt. The "Eastern question," which
has hung in the balance for so long a
time, is tat last to be
settled by a rcort to arms.
Tbe war begius with Kussia

or when it will end is a matter that the
future alone can determine. All Europe
is interested, and it may be that all the
great powers of the continent will be
drawn Into tbe struggle. Time only can
determine to what magnitude tbe war
which has just commenced will attain;
but one thing is certain, this struggle
will test tbe strength of some of the
European powers, and it they are swol

E vlb since the Southern Democrats In
congress refused to join the filibus terers
in their efforts to prolong the counting
or t ie electoral votes until after the 4th
of March, and thus defeat the declaration
of tbe election of president as provided
by law, the Cinciunati Enquirer has
charged .Senators Cordon and Lamar
and other leading Southern Democrats
with having entered Into
a bargain with Northern Re
publicans, the conditions ol which was
that Hayes was to be given the presi
dency, and Gartkld for Foster the speak
enhlpof the next house ; and in return
Hayes was to recognize Hampton as gov
ernor ot South Carolina, aud Nlcholls as
governor of Louisiana. The Louisville
CuurUtJuurnul denies Uiat any such bar
gain was ever made, and raps the
Enquirtr over the knuckles lu no
gentle manner tor its persistency in try
lug to create a division in the Democra
Ic party. Tbe (Xxrur-Jvurnal ot tbe
24th says on thbj subject: "The brainless
'effort of one or two Dcmo:ratic news-

Southern Republicans are preparing to
adapt themselves to the new order of
things wuu tne best grs. possible; ana
it Is now given out that the much-talked
of revolt in the republican rarty will
not be s rious. Tbe leaders of the party
in the South are reconciling themselves
as fast as possible, and are preparing to
support the administration in the work
of pacification. This change is perhaps
easily accouuted for. Southern Republi
cans are, as a rule, a class of men who care
more tor the fat offices at the disposal of
tbe administration than they do for the
principles of tbe Republican ; party, '.and
they would willingly sacrifice the one to
obtain the other. They are well aware
that to tight the president is to surren
der all claims upon him in the bestowal
ot patronage, and that the loss of power
to control appointments in the south
is to them political death. To
this cause perhaps more than to
any other may be attributed the haste
with which .Southern Republicans are
preparing to swing into line and lend to
Mr. ilayes aud bis new policy their sup
port. A number of Southern Republi
cans who at first announced that they
would act with the Demo
crats and pais the senate
as well a the house, over to the oppo
sition at the coming session ol congress,
have written a letter to Senator Mor
ton, in which they advocate their reason
for surrendering to the president and giv
ing to his new policy their support ; aud
it is now probable that when iilaine and
Morton come to couut their forces lor the
fight agaiust Hayes, they will lind that
they have been deserted by the great
mass ol Southern Republicans who in
the past have given them so much
support and encouragement. The aver
age Southern Republican Is a man capa

be expected that they would act on any

Our taithful and beloved subjects know

attests our constant solicitude to pre

soli -ltuJe never tails to actuate us dunn

Our object before all was to eflect amel
ioration in tho position of christians
the East by means of pacific negotia
tions, and in concert with the great Eu
ropean powers, our allies nnd friends,
for two years we have mile Incessant
tflorts to induce the portj to etlect ruch
reforms as would protect christians In
Bosnia, Hcrezogovlna and Bul
garia from the arbitrary measure of local
authorities. The accomplishment ot
these reforms was absolutely stipulated
by 1 nterior engagements contracted by
the porte toward the wholo of Europe.
Our efforts, supported by diplomatic
representations made in common with
other governments, have not, however,
attained their object. The porte has re
mained unshaken in its formal refu-al of
any tflective guarantee for the security
of its Christian subjects, and has rejected
the conclusions of tbe Constantinople
conference. Wishing to essay every pos
sible means of conciliation in order to
persuade the porto, we proposed to the
other cabinets to draw up a
special protocol comprising the
most essential coudition3 of tbe Constan
tinople conference, and to invite the Tur
kish government to adhere to this inter
national act, which states the extreme
limits of ourpeacetul demands. But our
expectation was not tuliilled. The porte
did not deter to this unanimous wUh of
Christian Europe, and did not adhere to
the conclusions of the protocol. Having
exhausted pacific tflorts, we are com
pelled by the haughty obstinacy of the
porte to proceed to more decisive acts,
leeling that our equity and our own dig
nity enjoin It. By her refusal Turkey
places us under the necessity ot having
recourse to arms. Profoundly con
