AFFAIRS IN EUROPE.
Ow UndM rtrr*p?wi?w#. London, Feb. 1, 1855. Xord John RuseeUand hi* la* Cerf/sagaes-Opi*. iMi in the / <mdon Clubi on the Politic ?i TSeacht ry of the Former? Tht Great Question < f the Uuur?fVho is to be Premier? ? Lord Patmersto* tn U not Ate.pt Office unltti Freed from the Inter* feremce of the Court Party? Lord Grey's Pre ten Burnt Ditcuteed, &e. If ever it bu happened that a letter addressed trow one of those institutions, which, though oaten e'bly of social char* -tor, are the very focus of po etical gossip, and often of intrigue, has pnved ac eeptabie to your columns, 1 cannot help believing that >t the preeeut moment yon will not think an apology necessity, when I endeavor to give yon something resembling a tableaux of things and per ?ots which bow to every clab in London are of sa:h wll-abecrblrg interest. My letters have from time to time apprised jou of what was approaching. No one oan take an aotive iLteiest in men and parties, and sit at the seat of CMtoias watching each change of aspect, each olood at- it rises in the political b orison for some live and ?went y years, without gathering a tolerable inkling o! eom.- g events as they oast tbelr shadows before him. At the same time, God forbid I should set myself up as a political prophet. One may be right enough In predicting the progress of a principle, though net in defining the exact measure ol Its ad vance?tor there are the passions, interests and mix ed feelings of individuals to be taken into oonsidera twt ; and these, no man can take account of. That Lore Aberdeen must tall, and Lord Palmers too re main ? aster of the situation, and that, too, before many weeks, I knew well enough, and did sot hesitate to apprise you ; bat the mo dus operandi has taken every one of us by surprise., I know persons intimately connected With Lord John Russell, who state Holdly that in their opinion, the whig leader of the House of C tmtnons had not contemplated the step he took four and ?we Sty hours before. I heard from the lips of the Karl of ICinto, myself, his father-in-law, that what ever the fate of the government, Lord John inteaded to sink or swim with It. In the present instance, he has entirely departed from the usage of his bfe, which is? however strong his Individual opinion? to aet in strict unison with his party. He hae the greatest repugnance to violate party principle; and, setf-Mliant as he is, his adherence to it explains waxy ef those fallings off in the carrying oat of bold reoolutioBsand large measures, by which ho has lost mach popularity with the country. He has boss heard to say that his indifference to this party prin ciple wee the capitalerror of Bir Robert Peel; and, therefore, that without consulting any individual, ha should have suddenly token boat and polled away from the craay ship, has astonished every one. At toe same time, it is said that he could net have done otherwise without subjecting himself to that whish Mr. Disraeli evidently desires to aooute him of? aemeiy, profligate intrigue? the act, if H were to take place, to be honest to Lord Aberdeen, could not hs eoUective; and on this ground publio opinion per fectly acquits him. As to whether he should have held oa, scd confronted the Roebuck breaker, opinions at the clubs are somewhat mare divided, and at first, decidedly, were unfavorable; but a change is even now going on, and I should not bs surprised to find that before eight days have elapeed, Lord John is to be thought to have adopted the only e urse left to him. That he ought to have resigned two months ago, when Lord Aberdeen declined to aeeede to his suggestion toucMag the oar admin is tiwtten, is ssserved by souse; but many sound jodg bo*n at tee Carlton as well aethe Returns which ed frrm toy to day of some decisive movement of toe army; oat ha hoped against hope, and while to srs wee a thread to bang by, be ooum aot fairly have left Lerd Aberdeen in the lurch. Even when I he did so, it is argued it was not before again inef h^tatoto suggesting that change which curiously was conceded within ttrelve hours of his and this booing for the favorable ehance I ef war, with the natural ma Usee of a brave men? I aad hie courage hae never been questioned? to de I ssrt the coalition is, it is thought, sufficient answer to the objection that what was amenable on the no tice of Mr. Rccbuch's motion, waa equally wrong be With reipect to another point? that of Lord John's desire to keep himself c'ean havled for another ftemierahrp? one which bas bean pnt forwad re peatedly since the denouement, I do not find that a?y whon opinion i? worth listening to en'.er tains it. A Premiership neieesirUy c ? templates the o'mcsi conciliation of paity support, ana jast ?ow Lord John hut, tor the ti'st time, (riven many ?f kia waime* . frienda a specie* of cold shoulder; fee while in the dobs and every c*"-te, they hare been dotrg their beet to bolster np the adm'nistra toon, their leader has taken np bia hat and gone out ef toe heme. Beaidea, theie is tmth in th) report tbtt LorJ John would willingly, if possible, be r? heved from the csres of office; he is fond of liter. tart, and is sensible enough to know that, though the country MfM ts him as a pure and m >?: disis tern ted patriot, and is proud or bis character, a very eercmon opinion prevails, tt&t, as ? man of *c ion, be W "used np." But who is to be the Premier? That Is the qanatioo. Hot Lord Jobn, 1 suspect, nor Lord Landsdosraa either, I believe, th nigh the last ia more prjbabk; ?any wo bo far as to sty tl at Lord PAlm:rston won 'J prefer bemg second in responiibility, provided be ?sn secure a cka* stage and no favor? no court in terfere* -a? for his urn department. But. the mi jcrny of we 1 it formed persona dtcUedly in all ^e to the belief that Lord I'almerstoa frill be content with no combination which does n >t place him at i.'.e head of slktlri. After what took pi toe in 1851, hie frierd* nay it is De^Htiy to his ciatA'V te' tka' he should he ao? ttast this, be ko < ??, wiH alone secure him from cvirt. raitd'o*, hod tivabim that perfect, freedox of act;cn wnioi is absolutely tr esswy in the present Juuc ureot' at ftira.

The results of thia rote, if ekilfally followed up by Prussia. are mealculablr. Tho pusillanimity of Aastrta ta m>t Ukily to be diminished by the redecttoa that a , "war uith Russia will have to bo earned on, not only without the expected cooperation of a German arm y, but with a neutial, and per haps unfriendly Power hovering in her roar. In all probability, therefore, ahe win paraue her tempo rising system to the utmoit, and tbe prespect of nor relieving the allied forces In he Crimen by a diveeaion on the Vistula or the Pruth, will remain as ilntant as over. While Austria is thus paralysed, Prussia will bt able to offer her ssediaUou with far better ohanceo of seseass ' than hitherto, or to stipulate for tho moat advantageous terms In tbe event of her joining the Western alliance. Tho latter alternative, however, though nstsMI upon by the most influential portion of the press, and supported by the weight of public opinion, is growing mere and more unlikely; in fact, if it were not for tho flier of a popular outbreak, there can bo little doubt but that tho Prussian government would openly espouse tbe ?auae of tbe Csar, whoss recant successes have wonderfully raistd the spirits of the Bnssian party at the court of Potsdam. It Is urged, indeed, In some quartern, that br obstinately persisting in her dubious neutrality, Prussia ' runs the risk of drawing down upon herteM the ven- i geence of tlie Fronch Emperor, and being eipeoed to a . repetition of the disasters of Jena; but a dispassionate view of tlie real position of affairs will prove such ap- 1 prehensions to be chimereal. At tble moment, Fraaoft is straining every nerve to reinforce her armieeta Tur key and the Crimea; next spring, another army must , be despatched .to the Baltic, where the ieeMoieoey of , mere naval operations has bean demonstrated fey last , year's campaign ; a strong force must be kept at bceae, to . maintain treaquill ty in Parii, Lyone, and other large towns, in which the blessings of the inperial rule are ? not sudl'iently appreciate!, besides this, Algeria most . be occupied, the oc air of St. Pster propped up, the Span- , ish (rentier watchoc and it is evident, tl -stare, that . Louis Napoleon baa ample employment for ail the troops he can dispose of, and la not >n a condition to seek new [ enemies. No one doubts tho ambition of the French Emperor, or the longing eye he casts upon tbe conquests ' wrested from his uncle ; but his wariness is equal to his J luft of dommion. and despite tbe blustering of the Cba- ' tiitutionnA, he is too s&gacioua to take any step that ,, would force Prussia Into the arms of a person whom he | already tinde such difflculy in dealing with, la a word, i Prussia is "master of the situation, "and, for the mo ment, may be considered the arbiter jf&arepe, though, ' to judge from her antecedents. It *%prcelytohe ??- > pocted that ahe will display the t?#i and reaohitloD ' neceeaary to pro tit fey tlie advantages of a position in ' which ane baa been placed rather by the into of cir- ? cumstsnces than by her timid and wavering polcy. ; Tbe accounta received here from the Crimea are gloomy In the extreme, and seem to preaage a frightful oataetro- i phe. the condition of the allied srmy is really, as L6rd John , Muse* 11 stated it to be, not only painful, but Horrible and heart-reading, and the French troops do not appear to be M much better off than the KngHfh, although the proas in " France Is too strictly watched, and partly too much l under tho Influence of national vanity, to girt equal | publicity to their sufferings. No doubt their military .. arrangtvente en far superior, their officers seore ex* ( perienoed, their oeeemiesariat more effectively srgealaad, their wants are f wer, rhelr tamper more aangnane, and, ^ as long as the weather contirued mild, though damp and 1 uncomfortable, tfeey could bear tbe fatigues of tho siege 1 with greater alacrity than their English eomrales, who weie exposed, without food or shelt-r, to the "pelting of ? the pitiieas storm."
