FOREIGN  UIDNIGUT 1H8PAT0HB8.  KASTEHN NKWa. Ragusa, Oút 88—A dispatch aays Paiha bas withdrawn from Podrietza to the Grandy dlatrlot.  Tbe surrender of Medun to tba Montenegrins has produced a vigorous impression on all the Montenogrina, who have liberated the Albanian priaonera taken during the rccent fighting.  The London Post says if the armistice can bo agreed on, llieu comes the question of a cun leren ce. liussia olijeets to Tarklah partioipation. 'i'lisro may bo aaaumed that tbia refer« aolely to the poaition of a power daliber-ating on its own oase. Ohvioualy if the SIX powers uicnt to diHcnss recommnnda-tion» to be niatln to tbe seventh, there is something unonialouH in giving tbe latter thu casting vote in discussions, bntitia impossible for a moment to cousent to tbe exclusion of Turkey from the conference. The lOuropnan srateni, which by virtue of the treaty of l'aria she forms a part, it on¡;hl to be practicable to find n method by which » iBpre.tontative of the Porto may .sit in conférence.  So as to obviate this diHionUy before a conferuiicc, the question of its basis and oly.icts which miglit occasion dangerous diíliati-, should by unanimous consent be rod need to tbe simplest terms, which may bo stated thus : Tl.o basi» of tho confer-enee is the maintenance of the independence of the Ottoman Empire, and the ba-nis is the amelio'-atiou of the condition of the Christian Bubjeots of the Siiltan. This could not alarm Tnrkey in her Hovoreign rißht. This object is one which linssia profo.ssed alone to have in viow. We are without loiindation for the hope that tbe peaceful aoliition hero foreabadowed will be happily «Ducted.  The Pall Mall Gazette, in a strong article, takes a peaceful view of tbe prospects.  A dixpatch from Speiza states that the trials of tbe lOO-ton Armstrong gun, made  full aaaortnient of Berlin Zephyrs worated. Mne. Reynoir will attend to all ordera with prompt care and at reasonable prloea.  "Daniri.
