HE WARS BETWEEN RUSSIA ANVD TL'R ERP. h Dublln Nation, May Pd.) When, lst month, the suapreme director of Rula's destlny deolared war on Turkey, his mighty word, we are told, awoke an enthulartice echo in all Russian Iearts. "Strong in the consclouianes of fulfilling sb mred historical duty," said the Ruski r ir,t "the nation enters upon the final so lution of its ancient task." It is, indeed, Sno fed of yesterday which arrays in con fliet the armed hosts of " the Sick Mau" and " the colosuss of the North. So far back as the latter years of thie seventeenth century, tile peoile of Peter the Groat stepped into thnn place of tile Empire Sad the Papacy, of Venire and l'oland, as the chief enemy f tLhe Crescenrt. lnlssia was then becomirng ,f m lrt-rat, acellUlt ill Europe, land Ilh, Silanit rwlore wtll iire~ had begun tpo de .ine, ioratPeed t jlndr what would turn to gol d the sand of Its baelrlt steppes This w eine tie cnuse o tih enllry; the pretext fr ihostilities was fullnd in the constant misgovernment of thie Christian subjects ot 'I urkey, and in the ever-recur ring cries of the oppressed for relief from their miseries. Eight times during the last two hundred years has the historical Eastern question, in this, its latest phase, . been submitted to the arbitrament of the sword. If the staffs of the armies which are now waging the ninth asd, possibly the last contest of the series, only studied tihe history of their own countries, they would Sknew-e-goy-atepob f the line of march both in Europe and Asia. No roads will be fol lowed, no passes will be stormed, scarcely any fortresses will be besieged that have not already been followed, stormed, or be Ssieged respectively in oeme or more of the eight campaigns to which we have alluded. Viewed in their entire extent, in fact, tile Ruaso-Turkish wars, including that which is progressing, constitute one long struggle in which thle same grand movements are more or less frequently repeated on the hmime historical frouud, tience -a back ward glance, in this ca, may be n - ally interesting even to others than the combatants, and especially to those-and probably they are may--who labor under hopes or fears springing from vague ideas of distance or physical features. The pre sent brief sketch is founded upon an un paetentious but clearly and succinctly written bobk by one who is himself, we be lie, a recognised student of the art of war and who, on this occasion, has called to his aid, amongst other authors of repute, Count Von Moltte, Russian captain in the expedition of 1828 9. now German Field Marshal and the first strategist of his age. (The sketh alluded to heare is by Major F. . Russell, 14th Hussars.-ED. STAR.) A priori, wre should expect, from looking at the map, that Russia would cast a long log eye towards the sunny outlets of the sea that bound her Southern frontier. As a matter of fact, her first effort in her con test with Turkey was to get a foothold in the peninsula of the Crimea, which, with the uaighnboring lands, was held by the Khans of Crim as vassals of the Rultan. By the treaty of Carlowita in G!--till treaty which co.ncluded tei last war under taken agaitnst Turkey by ail ilh. Christian Powers of the East united--Petir tile Great irst wo len the port 0o Ac )p1, and an armistice fr thlirty years was gr-eed upon amo engst thI . i,nrlii treOits. Thin e armistic was tbroknt, in 17()9. In tllhat year Tut key was again ait war in defence of her p:,ssea sious, but now for tne first time with lins sia for nier so'tn anltagonist. We need not linger over this period. Although hostiln ties extend ,over tan years, they were not marked by any notable innlcdent. Suffice it to say the broad reasult was not encour aging for the invader. Tne armies of the Cszar were defeated, and in 1711 that po S... saten signed the treaty of Pruth, whlereby S he renounced ait te advaunsos L- hm. gained in J9,,. The next war, however, Which broke out iu 1736, and found Austria and Russia allies, luted longer, wu of a much more serious character, and had a differnent ending. It also psnaues much more interest bor Irish readers, for the mes distinguished general on the Russian ide wasr an Irishman. We need but ime r- tion the name of Marshal Lacy, who at fourteen yers of age shared the flnght of "r the Wild Geese," served under the ban r ner of France until his regiment was di. banded, and then made his name a nyu onym for victory in every province from the Block Sea to the Baltic. The first year of the war, Marshal Mun nlch wre In supreme command, with Mar sinad Lcy for hns chief lieutenant, and ths principal operations were the capture by the Iatter of the coveted port and fortreei of Azoph, and the march of uInlnich fro the Duieper into the heart of the Crimea Both generals displayed striking abilitiea, as did n!sn thie leader of an expedition de spa . ptchd aigaxnnt tine Turkish territories o0 the Kulin:l. Next 'ear, Mlunnich placed himself iwta oen thn.e Duieperand tile Illack Se, atnd took tile town en OchzLakow after a desperate struggle, in tine course of whlich lbe opened a battery upon some soldiers oh hbi own who wore inwlllng to rush into a sea of flanmt; tie Irinlhman meanwhile ma csDhbim into the Crimno, and there per · each daring feats as made the EM- Lhaa fof!Wqtwithout a contest. This the most brilliant episode of the whole war. Twice was the Khan completely outmanmuvred. He had entrenched him self behind the lines of Perekop, thinking thus to bar the way at the very outset against the Russian advance; but Lacy took the unprecedented course of crossing an arm of the sea by a bridge, marebing along the narrow strip of land that reaches as far as Arabat, and thus threatening to outflank his opponent. The only thing left to the latter to do was to take up post tion against Lacy at Arabat, and this was the course the Khan followed, with every prospect of making Lacy turn back or fight in an utterly disadvantageous posi tio. But the marshal astonished not only the enemy but his own troops by sud denly turning ciff the land and marching right through the Putrid Sea, again threat ening to outflank the Khan, who accord ingly fled to the mountains. It was on the occasion of this perilous march that the marshal had the famous rencontre with his genera's All of the m but one urged that safety lay only in a return to the Ukraine with the utmost possible speed; where upon they were every man of them handed their passports, ard a body of 2(10 dragoons was appointed as their escert. It was three whole days, sa s Major Russell, be fore the generals could prevail on their chief to relent, and forgive them their presumption in proposing a retreat to him! In 1738 Marshal Lacy again invaded the Crimea, and in the following year Munnich gained a great victory over the main Otto man army at Cho-Ceim. These successee would naturally prepare one to expect the treaty of Belgrade, which was signed in 17310, to be very unfavorable to the Turks, hout the contrary was the case., The Sul tan-and the fact will give some idea of the strength and resources of the Turkish empire in those days-had totally defeated and imposed hard conditions upon Austria, and now he succeeded in exacting the re storation to himself of Az iph, and the withdrawal of all Muscovite vessels from the Black Sea. It was not, however, in the nature of things that this arrangement shonll be maintained beyond the period at which Russia recovered from the a fflts of her exhaustion. TI'hatt period arrived in 17i9-the date at onoe of the partition of Poland and of the third Rosso Turkish war. )o this occasion the Tuak was the aiggrtesor, at Iclst nominall3; and he at was who came (a 1 worsted from the con tier. The Crimes was invaded; Ronman zilis armies were most successful on the I'ruth, their most decisive victory being v.on at Kagul, a place heard of last month in connection with the crossing of the frontier in Europe by t.e Russian tro.rpe; the Turkish fortresses of Ismail and Hend er in that neighborhood were captured; Turtakia wis also taken; siege was laid to Silietria and Varne; and, finally, the Grand Visier was shamefully defeated in the neighborhood of Shnmla; add to all of which that some ilf the possessions of the Porte rose in revolt. It may be truly said, we believe, that never had the Ottoman Power been in greater straits than now, and never had the Russians a better chance of reaching the Bosphorus. Baut one of the most remarkable circumstances in the later history of the Turkish empire is the num ber of times it has been fortuitously saved from apparently certain destruction. The plague which raged from the Neva to the Euphrates with unexampled malignity, saved it now. It so paralyzed the Russians tbat, instead ofccupying-Contan tin oople, they were fain to be content with *z6pb, the free passage of the Black Sea and the Dardanelles, the protectorate of Moldavia and Wallachis, the erection of the Crimea into all independent principality with a view to its anexation at a future date, and that aecendency in the Caucasus and in Georgia which later on led to the c n quest of those provinces. Such were the provisions of the peace of Kuc Kuk Kam ardghi. But, weak as was Turkey in 1774. twelve years later, when the Empress Catharine renewed the contest, the prospect before it was still darker. Placing a large army under Potemkin on the line of the Cau casus, and another under the famous Suwarrow on that of the Danube, that sov ereign concluded once more an alliance with Austria for the partition of the do minolons of her hereditary foe, and mean time seized the Crimea. The Sultan sought to avert the storm by at once acknowledg ing the sovereignity of Russia in the penin sula. He failed, and declared war, and then began one of' the most fierce and bloody campaigns on record. Leaving the fight with the Austrians unnoticed, we find the Ottomans defeated by the Rusianus successively in the Black Sea, atOchzakow, at IBender on the River Kuban, and at lemail. The capture of this latter plare by Suwair,w-tnat roughest of the sol diers ol fortune-was attended by fiightful carnage. " You will take Ismail, cost what it may," was the biitf and peremp tory order of Potemkin, who knew, of course, that the tortress was not only the key of the Lower Danube, but also the only real obstacle between t:e Russian army and Constantinople; and Potemkin's lieutenant most certainly racked not of the cost either to the besiegers or to the besieged. Thirteen thousand of the flower of the Turkish soldiery were inside and tentimes were made red-hot in forges specially constructed for the purpose, they replied with a withering fire. They re pulsed with success the moat determined and desperate attempts at storming. "At last," says the account quoted by Major Russell, "one earth-battery was carried, Bawarrow being the first to apply the ·saling-ladder, and, with a standard in his hand, he mounted, and planted it on the work. It is reported of him that when Iading or driving his people to the assault he cried out, ' Brothers no quarter to day for our bread is scarce.' " Later on the second line wuas carried, and then the thind, when a torrent of savage and irritated Muscovites burst into the heart of the city and began a slaughter that lasted through the night. Thirty-due thousand Turks Swere put to the sword, while the Russians lo-st no less thau thirteen thousand men in the assault. 'rThe account of the matter sent to the emnprees by Suwarrow was la conic In the extremne. "Mother," lhe wrote • lasiail is at your feet." The Ottoman army was iubsi queatlty defeated in the province of Kuban and at Matchin. was driven entirely out of Bulgaria-was, in fact, practically disbanded. "Since the king, yur- mcatr, Wasdetermined to drive me nut of St. Petersburg,"said the Czarina, at this time, rather saroastically, to Sir Charles Whitworth. Abe British ambassa dor, "1 hope he will permit me to retire to she might then have as Iast raised the Russian standard on thedomeof St. Sophir. But again the fates willed otberelse. She appears to have dreaded and to have been Ili prepared for a general European war as the result of such a decided step, and the peace of Jassy was coneluded in 1791, which only advanced her territory in Eu rope to the Daiester. The next war was not a very remark able one, and it lasted only a year-from 1806 to 1807-owing to the fact that after the Russians had entered on their task of " driving out the Turk," Napoleon's pro ceedings in the West compelled them to f bring every available man to another the atre of operations. But, brief though its duration was, it was unfavorab:e to the : Turks, who had, as the result, to submit to the temporary accupation by Russia of " Moldavia and Wallachia. We may add that it was during this war such a curious light was thrown by the English Admiral I)uckworth on the all important subject of the attack and defence ot Cnustantiunople. That cflicer ia order to force the Porte to renounce the French alliance, nlmde Iris way to the Sea of Marmora despite a heavy cannonade from the shore batteries ,of the Dardanelles, and on his arrival foond the city at his mercy. Had he carried out his I threat of an immediate bombardment, his expedition would have been conpletely successful. But he was lured into a delay of three or four days by the diplomacy of the French ambassador, and then he found that the sea batteries that had in the r meantime been established threatened the I very existence of his fleet, and left him no ) alternative but a speedy and ignominious retreat to the place from which he had started. C The occupation of the Danubian princi- : palities might naturally be expected to lead in due time to an attempt at their ano nexation, and in 1810 such an attempt was made, and the sixth war of the series we I are now contemplating was commenced between Russia and Turkey. Those who i f. el surprised at the delay in crossing the Danube at the present time may, perhaps, be ilrterested to learn that sixty-seven years ago the operation was begun a Ostrovo as early as March 14, and was not finally successful till late in May. Once _the Russians had crossed, however, the Turks, accorling to their custom both in, previous and in subsequent wars, abaudonj douned the line of tie D tnube and c:;ncen trated on Schnmua. The Muscovite gen eral,-on his part, divided his army into. two columns, with one of which he made an attack on Varna, while with the other he proceeded to occupy Bulgaria north of I the Balkans and reduce the fortresses in i that quarter. The attack on Varna failed; so did a subsequent assault on Schoumla. But Ruotthuck-which, with its tete de a pont Giurgevo, was the fortress next es sayed-fell after enormous losses on both sides, and by the end of October the Rus sian army was established in winter quarters in B]ucharest. Bat now the Turks determined to make one great effort to roll back the tide of war. The Turkish fleet, having been refitted, threatened, early in the following summer, a landing in the Crimea. Three distinct corps were sent to I tile Danube, and with otne u-f these the commander-in-chief boldly entrenched himself before Ruetchuk. Foitune, too, seemed to favor the Mahomeran army, for just then, as had happeted once before on a somewhat similar occasion, a large por ti-oft-tre alaR n auforce was, owing to complications with France, withdrawn to the borders of Poland. In short, the Russians were defeated, and fled to the other side of the river, followed by the vic torious troops of Achmet Pasba. The end, however, was not what might have been expected from this commencement. Alter having remained confronting each other for no less than three months, the rival armies at last closed, at the instance of the Roussian commander, in mortal combat, and the Grand Visier was defeated, and fled for his life. The Pasha second in command held out for some time longer, but he, too, was at length compelled to ca pttulate, and a peace was soon afterwards patched up, owing to the influence of Eng land, which now became the ally and friend of the Porte. By the treaty of Bucharest the Raussian frontier was advanced to the Pratti, the navigation of the Danube was secured, and all the Turkish fortresses in Servia were demolished. Here, at the end of a full century of in I termittent fighting betweef Resets and I Turkey, we may pause to sum up. Of the six contests we have surveyed, two proved adverse to the Russian arnie; in one Russia was victorious, but was prevented by thie plague from reaping the full fruits of her victory ; ini or o she was arrested in B the vry midst of it career of triumph by the movements of Napoleon; and in the I remaining two tlhe intervention of other Powers it was which stood betweeL her and Slir prize. That is one way of looking at f the c atalogue of results. Another will 9 readily suggest itself to every caeful e student of nistory. Russia, up to the time a at which we have now arrived, has ever a kept pressing doggedly onwards to the f South, arid, though always meeting with a a most stubborn resistance, and occasionally r beaten back or diverted from the prosecu tion of her purpose, has, in spite of all, I kept that purpose steadily in view, and has e of the wars that yet remain to be noticed T a history, by the way, which is yet more interesting and instructive than that just I glanced at, and is filled with more splendid .t lessons in military science-the same steady r and succeelfuPl persistence in pursluit of a , mighty end will be equally apparent. ITo be Continuaed. I BLCumsIN e-Nothing can be more absurd Sthan theidea that "looking guilty " proves Sguilt. An honest man charged with crime is much more likely to blush at the acca Ssation than the real offender, who is gen e orally prepred for the event, and has his face " ready made." The very thought of being osuspected of anything criminal will bring the blood to an innocent man's cheek nine times out of ten.
