London, May 17.—A dispatch
to Reuter’s from St. Petersburg
says: It is believed that Count
Schouvaloff has succeeded in con
vincing the Emperor that it is to Rus
sia's interest to concede to Europe
most of the demands formulated by
England. The assembling of a Eu
ropean Congress consequently ap
pears assured, despite the difficulties

concerning the surrender of the fort
A dispatch from Pei a iu the second
edition of to-day’s 'rimes says : “A1
though the advance of the Russians
four kilometres nearer to Constanti
nople is declared to be devoid of sig
nificance, the movement has never
theless increased the uneasiness here.
The Russians, instead of being clus
tered in villages, are extended before
the city. News is also received ot
the advance of fifteen thousand troops
from Kaldikrati to Kalchuk Tchek
medje, and of similar forward move
ments from Silenia to Kallikrati, and
other corresponding advances from
the rear toward the front. All these
movements tend to mass the Russians
closer to Constantinople. "

says: A regiment of Cossacks ad

grade, yesterday, and summoned the
Turks to withdraw towards Buyuk

that he must apply to the Porte for

Porte has also received advices that
the Russians are advancing nearer

these movements for hygcnic rea
The news from Constantinople has
the tendency to check the optionist
conclusions. The news is not fully
credited, but it is thought if true,
Todlehen’s demauds will be over
ruled at St. Petersburg, now that
peaceful views prevail. Though Tod
leben's demand is not in the nature
of an ultimatum, it brings a strong
pressure to bear on the Porte. Great
alarm exists in Constantinople; but
the attack on the city or a forcible
occupation of the whores of the Bos
phoras is discredited as the liussiau
minister presented his credentials to
the Sultan to-day, and had an appoint
ment to meet the British minister'
The Times says the war has already
cost Russia 1100.000,000.
