Dispatches from Odessa and Sebastopol, v;hich are confirmed by the ad-cilralty. clear up fully the present sit-tialloü. The Kniaz Potemkine has lailed from Odessa and is now at large and her crew, reinforced by sympathizers from shore, is still in control of the vessel.

The Kniaz Poternkine, which was eteering a southerly course when she left Odessa, would within a few hours fee south of Russian limits and may cert,be heard from at some Balkaa or Turkish port. The- spirit manifested'through' thé fleet goes far to explain the defeat In the Eei of Japari, as a large portion of the crew, esprriaiiy those of Admiral Nobogiiíofr'ü division, were .crafted from the Kuxine sea, and were evidently not in a mind to offer a stout fight.
