This Is attributed to MliV tho Interruption of direct communication with tho commander-in-chief, owing to the lll transfer of tho telegraph office to Muk- JtH den, whither messages have to bo sent by fll courier. Tho utmost confidence prevails fil at the War offlco that the Russian army wl Is slowly but suroly effecting tho retreat ajl without serious riak of being cut off. hJI Whole Nation Anxious. jjl None the leg slntcnse anxloty is felt ftHill throughout the wholo nation, and this Sfl feeling Is shared by tho Emperor.
