The czars address to the troops at St. Petersburg on sunday and the calling out forty new battalions have further checked Public Confidence in the Early reestablishment of peace. A Berlin dispatch says it is announced that the proposed conference will probably meet in Brussels. The times St. Petersburg dispatch says it has been assumed until lately that England would interpose the principal obstacles to a satisfactory arrangement hut it in now believed that Austria will offer the most serious opposition. Russia is inclined to be conciliatory relative to the question of the Straits which principally affects England but with regard to the Solano Pic tribes it is declared she must consider her own Honor and Aims As Well As the supposed interests of Austria. Popular Faith in the triple Alliance is much shaken. It is believed Austria has completely changed her attitude and serious doubts Are entertained even concerning Germany. A Vienna special says the montenegrin seem inclined to resist the armistice which was concluded just As they were meditating an attack on Scutari. It is minored that Russia will not occupy All the danubian fortresses when the turks evacuate them. If this is True it is a con cession to Austria who could hardly View with indifference russians Complete domination of the lower Danube.

London feb. 6.�?a Vienna correspondent telegraphs no attempt is made in St. Petersburg to remove the suspicion that the Russia commanders in Roumfola deliberately procrastinated the negotiations in order to take the greatest possible advantage of the military situation. On the contrary in order to dear the russian government of the charge which otherwise might attach to it that the delays occurred if not by its orders at least with its Connivance the Merit is claimed for it of having finally overcome by its peremptory commands the resistance and unwillingness of the army to see the armistice signed causing it to Stop at the very Gates of constantinople. London february 6. A a special from Athens says the conclusion of the armistice Bas caused consternation though the russian minister Here gave a verbal Promise that Greece should be included in the armistice. The Only rational thing for the greeks to do is to Stop military operations immediately and rely on this Promise and Good offices of Europe but no order has yet been sent to the army and the general feeling seems to be in favor of continuing the War at any sacrifice. The position of the greeks is bad. They can claim a Reward neither of warlike achievements nor of a peaceful policy. Oppo Eue new Pralon.

Special dispatch to events Mirror Harrisburg february a 1878. Ever since the adoption of the new Constitution considerable dissatisfaction has been Felt and has found expression in reference to the judicial distracting of the state. This year the chief agitation is occasioned by efforts at change in your District. The members of the lobby assisted by a senator or two Are Busy a a fixing the Senate for the favourable consideration of a Bill shortly to be presented by which it is proposed to Cut Fulton county off from the thirty ninth District Aud attach it to the present Twenty fourth District Blair Cambria and Huntingdon. Thi3 will leave Franklin alone in the thirty ninth but As that county Lias a population of 45,000 it is entitled to be erected into a separate District with a single Law judge dispensing with the associates. The addition of Fulton to your District will enlarge the population to Over 115,000, thus requiring the election of an additional Law judge. There Are two agencies in particular at work for the consummation of this scheme. In Huntingdon Aud doubtless elsewhere in the District there Are aspirants for Jud Hial honors to whom this would be a Plum which they would like to gather in unto themselves and they ate willing to risk the addition of a county giving a steady democratic majority of from 350 to 400. The Bill will have the support of senator Fisher of Huntingdon county. Toe other Agency at work is the desire of judge rowers friends of the thirty ninth District for his re election. With Fulton a Adverse majority of 350 and Possi Bly More he thinks he cannot succeed As it is extremely doubtful if Franklin Coul pile up Large enough a Republican majority to effect the Success of the democracy in Fulton. This will if any thing alone is Alala effect the end in View As it makes sure the election of the Republican judges instead of one democratic Aud one Republican. The matter has not yet come to a head As senator Lemon rests complacently on the Fence. An Effort was made to get him off but was not successful judge Dean was requested to write a letter or sign a petition in favor of the project but this he refused to do saying they might work it out themselves a Best they can. It is Well known that judge Dean would have no objection to slicing Huntingdon off your District Aud confining his judicial labors to Blair and Cambria. Blair alone would hardly relieve him from idleness Aud he prefers the two counties to the one. Any project of this kind would receive the unhesitating and a a unanimous support of senator Lemou. If the Senate however can be a set up on the original proposition you May shortly look out for a Bill to that effect. K. Add a Washington letter Washington d. C. Feb. 4. The newspapers of the country areal ways containing paragraphs and items rela q tire to a society at the capital a a society doties a &c., and it is a fact that custom is j More arbitrary on that Point in this Cit thin in any other place in this country. We can Only deprecate the people who allow themselves thus to become the slaves of usage. Of course this refers Only to what is known As the highest class in society which Means the president Cabinet diplomatic Aud congressional families who live in Bonds of affliction because of the demands of society which they feel bound to meet. The mistress of the White House receives one afternoon of each week Aud the Public generally attends without ceremony or cards and of course she knows not nor cares whom she receives but the other official ladies a who also give regular receptions feel obliged to return the Calls they receive Aud hence comes tors eternal round of calling Aud receiving that goes to the making up of a a capital on some afternoons As Many As six seven or eight Hundred Calls Are made at the House of a Cabinet minister whose lady must return them All not Only by card but in person. Mrs. Robeson kept an account of these matters and said that she paid forty dollars a season for visiting cards alone and one of the Cabinet ladies the other Day said that the games and addresses of Calls to be returned which excludes those of gentlemen covered sixteen pages in Lier writing books pages about the size of foolscap paper. If this Isnit slavery of the absurdist sort what is it tile Only reason they give for it is that they wish to do As far As possible in this matter what their predecessors have done. Gail Hamilton miss Abigail Dodge is Here receiving and visiting with mrs. Blaine meeting and chatting with High officials As innocently As if Tribune letters were things unheard of. She is a most animated and attractive conversationalist and is never without a Host of listeners. It is doubtful if another Mouth soon comes to the nations capital wherein woman will figure so largely in the Public Eye As they have done during the month that is past. The woman suffrage convention was much in itself for Elizabeth Ady Stan ton is an acknowledged Power As Are Sev Erat of her followers. Then the brightest lights in the american world of music misses Cary Aud Kellogg have Sung to a Cool that is done to get excited personal examination invited to prove the superiority of our new Stock.

Last evening the two principal liver men in the City had not one horse or Sleigh in the stables at five of clock that was not engaged for the night with another rising opera Singer Roze. It was amusing to note How Stout Ain Fleshy All these ladies Are growing. Indeed persistent singing seems to have that effect on All our Prima Donnas in time. Physicians say it is because of the expansion of their Longs and consequent inhaling of oxygen. The utmost enthusiasm prevailed during the week of English and italian opera in which the Cary Kellogg Roxe combination performed the opera House being crowded and thronged every evening and the receipt for a Benefit night being $2,700. Single tickets were sold As High As ten and fifteen dollars and Many would gladly have paid More still had admission been attainable at any Price. Another woman who has attracted a lion s share of Public attention Here in the last fortnight is the Pede Trienne Bertha von Hillbom. She has taken two of her Little walks one of 89 Miles in 26 hours and one of too Miles in 28 hours. She walked in Odd Fellows Hall and was a seen of May a for the Hall was filled All through her performances. This sort of amusement savors a Little strongly of Lull fights Aud horse races but is nevertheless just the sort scores of people Delight in. Her track was marked out sawdust de and so on and when she had finished her Hundredth mile the enthusiastic crowd seized and bore her round again seated in a chair upon menus shoulders.
