AUGUSTA. SATURDAY MOHNINO, NOV. 5, 1570. THE EAST Elf QUSSTJOX. The schemes of the government nt St. Petersburg are being considered more at tentively at this stage of the war than be fore. The large military force which the Emperor has in readiness to take the field excites suspicion, and it is whispered that he has designs of enlargement nt his power, for which the present scents a ln\ orable opportunity. It is rumored on the one hand that Prussia is in league w ith Russia to make no interference with tin wishes of the latter for increase of power upon tho black Sea and Darda nelles; and upon the other that though there may be no such league, Russia is awaiting the weakening of Prussia by the war to make a spring upon the possessions which she lias long coveted. In short It is said that Russia has viewed and en couraged this war solely for her own ag. grandizement. and is now prepared to strike when she judges the opportune movement has arrived. The following article from the London Globe of the lath is an interesting sketch of the situation : Should that great Power which hangs like a thunder cloud upotf the eastern horizon of Euiope take advantage of the present crisis to prosecute her designs on Turkey she would no longer, it is clear, have the Anglo-French alliance to encounter. If France had the powi r she would probably not have the will to join us in another war, and if she had the wdi she would certainly not have the power, but it is said that the course of events in Europe since 1834 has converted another great empire into a much more natural barrier ugiinst Russian ambition than France t ver could have Deen. Ausma is umu-u viunm'^ which seem almost indissoluble, .anil are none the weaker because they have ceased to he political. Hut Austria has set her lace to wards the East, and we tru*t that she will not look back. She lias long experience in the management of heterogeneous populations, aud that she has held together at all i* a proof of no mean skill. It should be her mis- | sion to subdue and civilize those w ild and j turbulent races which lie upon her eastern frontier, and should the day ever come when the Turk has to fold his robes and retire with dignity into the land which originally sent him forth, to step into the vacant space and solve the Eastern question. * * * Pru»sia can hardly either expect or desire to push her frontier to the Gulf or Venice, and it a great southeastern empire is to be formed at all, she would, we may suppose, rather see it Aus trian than Cossack. From this point of view, then, Russian aggression might he cheeked by an Anglo-Austrian alliance, Prussia and France remaining neuter, as Ik fore it was checked by an Anglo-French alliance, Prussia and Austria remaining neuter. The calculation is a beautifully imple one, | but we are afraid that for the practical affairs of the world it is somewhat too simple. We , can understand that Prussia might view such a result with indifference, but there is noth ing in the world to make her regard it with j enthusiasm, nothing to lead us to believe that she would continue to acquiesce in it did »he ; see any way to benefit herself by thwarting | it. And thus it comes that the question may be in this shape—which can pay the higher for British neutrality, Austria or Russia!! And this question leads us direct to the mo-t important considerations of all by which the j subject is surrounded. There is a particular , acquisition which is coveted by both Russia ! and Prussia, which both may obtain if they ‘ agree, and which neither can obtain if they j quarrel. Botli desire more complete access | to the sea, and what the Dardanelles are to 8t. Petersburg that is the Baltic to Berlin. Each State has it in iier power to gratify the other. A Russo-German alliance lor giving the northwest seaboard to Prussia and the i southeast seaboard to her confederate, could j not be resisted in the present condition ot ! France with anything like a certainty ot suc cess. And such a bargain seems so very! natural—the geography of Europe seems so obviously to suggest it—that we cannot al low the idea to be pure phantom. If, on the | other hand, it is asked from which of the two I Powers, Russia or Austria, have the Huhcn zollerns the more to fear, the answer is equally ready, hegemony of Germany has been definitely transferred, and it is to the ' highest degree improbable that Austria should ; ever try to recover it. liut in no other way can the two Powers ever come into collision. ! With the consummation of German unity a repetition ol the war of I860 seems impossi ble. But ail this time Russia lies watchfully in her lair, ready to come out the moment that the newly formed German kingdom seeks to realize its maritime aspirations. To buy off Russian opposition to tin* fulfilment of her darling object may seem worth any price to i Prussia; nor do we believe that she would hesitate when the price was merely co-opera tion with Russia in her Turkish policy, which j would hardly affect her own material interests at all. We have spoken of the chances of success which would attend resistance to such a league, and we have spoken doubtfully. Still, it must not be forgotten that Prussia has note : wade three enemies iv Europe; and that in the event in questton the instirn t ot sdi-pres ervation must necessarily prevail with Austria over even those strong German sympathies, which still attract her. It is, however, pre mature to speculate on details. liut this much docs seem probable, that Prussia will soon have to decide, it she lias not decided already, between liussu and Europe; hhJ that Russia has, to say the least ol if, a tempt ing bait to bang before her. To suppose licit the Court of St. Petersburg lets abandon.d its long cherished designs is more absurd than any hy pothesis we have here ventured on. While France is prostrate, and while England is . friendless, seems a favorable opportunity lor developing designs to which these two Pow ers have alway s been the t hief opponents. Should such an unfortunate event happen, England cannot evade her rt sponsihilitn s as she evaded them in the case of If. numrk : and terrible will be the indignation of a de luded people which at such a crisis finds it self powerless to fulfil them. POLITIC A1.. Judge Woodruff, of the Coiled States dis trict court in New York, has decided in l lie case before him that the clause of the in w na tional election law regarding registration is constitutional. The New York City Registration this year is 17,719 short of that at the last charter elec tion, although there arc substantially three elections—Congressional, State::rid Municipal —now to he held on the same day.

THE * N It ESA SI) OAII IS A CYCLOSE. The United States steamer Shenandoah, for the safety of which L ars were entertained, lots recently been heard from at Lisbon. She was caught in a cyclone a few days after leav ing port and narrowly escaped destruction. A writer on board of her gives the Pillowing account ot her experience in the terrible gale to which she was exposed. She had just been refitted and rebuilt at Charlestown, Mass., and was in splendid condition. She bad 2 is souls aboard. i he writer says: (»?i Sunday September 3, the Shenandoah and her pilot parud company in President's lioad'. liostou harbor. The same good for tune vrhieh had attended her thus far contin ued with her; favorable winds carried her on her course; the weulher was a type of all that has been described as delightful, and the ship's j company was unusually healthy. On the morning of September #th the w ind hauled ahead, although the weather continued fine as ! it had been. With the exception of the usual . di-satisfaetion manifested h/ sailor tin n at ■ contrary winds, nothing unwelcome occurred until the thh, w hen there fell slight showers ot rain; the sky was rather cloudy, the wind using to an occasional squall. On the 10t*4 the glass was observed to tali, an 1 to do so rather rapidly, w hich caused some solicitude, hut no apprv Pension. On Sunday the llili, just one week from the compass buoys, the wind com menced to freshen in the morning and contin ued to increase slow ly, raising a heavy sea. At twelve meridian the ship began to pitch considerably. For some time, however, the sail had gradually been shortened, simply to be oil the safe side in ease anything unexpect ed should occur, and also to be in accordance with tlnft marine udmonisher the barometer. Suddenly the tempest increased, and the slop gave sueh a violent lurch that the ward room table was completely inverted simply by gravity, so that the loll to leeward was at least forty-six degrees to forty-seven degrees ; the whole distance rolled in the lurch was six tv-nine degrees. At one o’clock the glass had talleii to 2.) :.»5. At half-past one o’clock the violence of the sea djmvc in the pivot port on the larboard bow, and tin* deck was deluged almost instantly; but by a rapid replacement of the unshipped timbers the threatened dan ger was averted. The water thus taken on hoard swashed heavily about, urged by the rolling of the ship, and as it struck either port or starboard bulwark it seemed to completely stagger the vessel, which responded to these tern tic blows by a tremulous shudder, as if in remonstrance at such treatment. , The gale steadily continued to increase in violence and strength,' blow ing from the cast southeast, driving before it a blinding spoon spray, so furiously as to render any object, however bulkv, invisible at a distance of about five liundrecl feet. Tt was now impossible— uttetly so—to go aloft to furl the sail which the force of the gale had started adrift by rea son of its parting the port-m lintopsail sheet; n..r could ilie sail lie elewed down in sufficient time to prevent it from being literally blown to ribbons. It was obliged to be so left, flut tering and betokening distress, and cracking iu the wind as fiexiblv as a coachman's whip. At twenty minutes past six the niizzen storm ; staysail tuck (the only sails carried now were ihe fore and niizzen storm staysails) parted with a startling snap, but the sail was fortun ately limited down ami secured before any one whs hurt with the flying block. I cn minutes afterward with a frightful crash the main top gallant mast was carried away, but owing to ihe strength of the rigging it hung swinging violently inboard and outboard with the mo tion of the vessel, terming a fearful and peril ous spectacle. It "as utterly out of the ques j lion to secure the wreck for the reason before ! jjiv, a. namely, the impossibility of goingalott; ; mi that the additional danger of the encum brance (for such it had now become) cutting through the standing rigging was presented. At sev en o'clock the glass h id fallen to Js :liI, „nd the cvclone hail reached a fury and a vio lence without u paralU 1 in the teuietiibranee ot ttnv individual on board. At eight o'clock so violent was the motion and so high «as the sea that the steam launch, secured at the davits just forward ot the main mast on the starboard side was wrenched violently inboard, rnd the davits themselves twi-ted like wire, although they were five incites in diameter, forged in solid iron. The heavy iron cradles in which the launch rested wlie'll in situ were snapped like glass. Id .. by this of the instability ot what had hitherto been considered sufficiently secure, extra lashings were placed on the guns and other heavy movables, i be larger yards bad been provided with prevent! r braces and jumpers some hours belore. I be rigging now began to display a dangerous laxity, and hung loo-elv, sagging in towards the mast, becom ing a tritie taitl, only on the more elevated stile as the ship roiled. bashings were stretched across the starboard to the port tower standing rigging, with the view to pre vent the inevitab e chafe ami weakening which must ensue on such a continued motion. At ten o’clock the cry cants-from the tor ward part ot the vesse’, acquainting the laint liearti da ml almost despairing mbrtals with the intelligence that the flying jibboom had been carried away. As it ti ll so it had to remain, it being loulhardy to even think ot securing the wreck. At half-past ten the foretop-gul ktnt mast snappeil oil short at the cap, like the si ivciing ot a gigantic icicle, anil tl.e wreck hung si tshing backwards and torn aid with a thundering clatter, adding more calamity to that already threatvi.b g the vessel. At eleven i „ ,1,11k the I'XCCsS HI Hlf liming ami me m .gin ; ,■! ilie* sea tore from it*- lastciiingi at the <l;ivits i the s. c.md launch, which went down b,V the i run in the water alongside. liy wondertul I ifl’ort on the p rtof those in charge the tackle was tn tmierl. the boat hoisted oil boartl and lashed on deck. Everything that could he don, to insure any hope of safety had been done, l.ashings had been placed around about every com atable object likely to fetch away or get adrilt. so that now in this helpless condition compara tively there was nothing to do but to await the issue as calmly and philosophically as one might. At.eight o’clock the joyful tidings were cir- j ciliated that the glass was rsing. although the hurricane continued w ith frightful force and unabated violence the w hole evening and the early hours of the next day. Sail the glass j continuid to rise, and this inspired hope. I 1 lie value of the aseensi ill w is practically il- ! lustrated about tour o’clock on the morning of j the 12th by a slight moderation id the gal,— j a circumstance noted by all with emotions '■ composed of hope and fear—hope slightly j predominant. The improvement of atihirs irom this point was gradual, hut it was steady ; I but there still rimaincd a dreadfully high sea ! running. In the trough of which it was feared ! tin* 1 iw masts would roll out ot the ship. Scv- j i oral times she t, U oil’ into it. hut providential- j i Iv, escaped, and by skillful iiiantruvring she I was guarded against a similar disaster. The : pitching at these times was so great that the ! sea was more than once seen by the officer on the quarterdeck over tiie foreyard; and the j logical result of such motion w as unavoidably j illustrated by the tearing adrift, through the filling with water of the dingee. which boat hung in fancied security close up to the after davits. The poopdeek for this short space of time was actually submerged, and the heavy, surg ing. turbulent seas resembled in their outlines gigantic human silhouettes, on the angry, up i turned countenances ot which the vessel was heaved, as if sht* had grounded on the face of some amphibious Titan. The gale gradually subsided, taking about forty-eight hours so to do, and it was then that many items of damage of minor note were discovered, and va-ious personal inconven iences revealed themselves in the shape of saturated bedding and wearing apparel; hut the joy at our deliverance was too universal to allow such tiilles to fret for one moment. At half-past thr, a o'clock on the morning of the 12th there drifted rapidly past us, about ! two hundred yards to leeward, the In lplcss, i tossing, tumbling wreck of a vessel, suppos ahly a ship, baling visible the slump of one ! i mast. The bull could not lie distinguished, be : cause the sea was running too high, and the only light was that derived from the moon, til | course no life could he observed on board, nor j could assistance have been rendered bad ii been otherwise. That wrei k was doubtless but one of tin* victims sacrificed to appease the manes of the angry Cyclone, and the | names of those unfortunates who perished in , j her will lint serve to swell the air,at !v mourn- i S fill catalogue of those whose sad, simple and j 1 touching obituary must be, "Lost at sea.” Domestic XcUjs. The Bolfast Journal says that <in Tuesday | afternoon, the directors of the licit ist i Moose head Lake Railroad, and Col. A. \V. Wildes, lions. S. It. Blake and J. T. Cursor, Hailroud Commissioners, with a nutnher of citizens, went up the road from Belfast as far as I'nity, where an engine and passenger car from the Maine Central were met. It was found to contain the President and a portion of the Directors of the Maine Central, engaged in inspecting the road. The party consisted of lion. It. D. Rice, Kx-Gov. Cobutn, lion. A. I).

The Belfast party, by invitation ot .Judge Rice, took seats in the Central train, and returned to Belfast, it was the first passenger train ! over the road, and was receive d by a large j crowd at the depot. The gentlemen of the visiting party were quartered at the American and New England Houses for the night.— About a quarter before eight in the morning, the train left to connect at Burnham w ith the morning train from Bangor, carrying a por- . j lion cT the party. The remainder started to j walk up the road, and were taken up by the ‘ train on its return. The examination that is being made is rigid and searching. The result of the examination will be known with- i in a week from this time. The covered bridge built last summer over i Sandy river in Newry near Joel Foster’s, was completely upset during the gale last week.

Obtaining reinforcements and the key to the store, he returned and found the burglar to be a vagrant Irishman named John Fenton, of Boston, who ostrich like had hid himself in a bin of corn hoping to escape detection. He was promptly arrested, taken before Judge Patterson and failing to procure bail was sent to jail, lie is probably sure ot a winter’s lodging ut the State’s expense. The installation of Rev. 'Win.
