The Long expected crisis which Europe has been waiting for virtually passed without a struggle. The russian left is in Force near Firsova and All their troops Between Kalaras and Ismail some 30, xxx have by this time passed from the Northern to the Southern Bank of the Danube and driven the turks to what they Call their second line of defense at Kun Stedje and the roman Walls. These present no obstacles Worth speaking of. It is otherwise with Kun Stedje itself. Here there have been some heavy guns mounted but All told there Are not More than 10,000 troops at Kun Stedje including the posts and forces driven in from the Banks of the Danube. We May therefore expect to hear speedily of the investment of Kun Stedje. The russian Center crossed at Sim Nitza easily with i rifling losses according to the latest dispatches. Gen. Milon Tine the russian War minister sends a Telegram dated Sim Nitza june 30, about the operations in Asia minor but vouchsafed no word concerning russian Progress at the Point which is now the focus of the worlds gaze. This would naturally Lead to the belief that the russians arc encountering some unexpected obstacle and their Success in establishing themselves South of the Danube is not As Complete As at first represented. It is not Well however to draw such a conclusion too hastily for the russians heretofore have had wonderful Success in silencing correspondents when any movement was in preparation or Progress Only permitting it to be reported when fully effected and the re suits secured so that any moment May bring us a fresh bulletin of the Czar to the Empress announcing a great Victory or strategic movement. Assuming that the crossing near Sim Nitza is As successful As that on the left Wing we May expect to hear soon of Crossings at other Points by which turkish Rustchak and the Varna line will be threatened East and West by at least 150,-000 men. This will Force the turks to wheel round and face the Danube so that Shumla forms their Center whilst the left rest on Osman Bazar and the right on Bazard Jik. The Advance of the Lusso romanian right Wing will paralyse Widding and thus leave the Center of Bulgaria practically denuded of troops in the face of another 80,000 to 100,000 which the russians can pour across at turn Magu Reli. As regards the general position of the turks in Asia minor there can be Little doubt that it has improved. The slowness of the russian Advance has not Only created Confidence but Given time for making preparations in consequence of which it has been resolved to defend the Junction of the roads from Kars and Bayzid in Araxes Valley. For this purpose transverse Ridge West of Zewin which is crossed by both roads from Kars Over the sigh Lulu has been occupied by the turkish main Force and strengthened by entrenchments while at Del Baba where the roads from Bayzid come Down into Araxes Valley the turkish right Wing has taken a position to prevent the russians from Debo Ching out of the pass. The two positions Are near enough to support each other in Case of need while there is a Small Reserve at Kukri Koi which May be used to assist either column or eventually serve As a rallying Point should the russian Center succeed in the attempt to storm the Northern end of sigh Lulu defile and gain a footing on the plateau of Olti and Border or should it prove True As reported that a Strong russian Force has succeeded in reaching Khorasan Mukhtar Pasha will probably concentrate his Force Between Kun Prikopi and Hassen Kaleh. Preparations Are making in the contingency of his inability to maintain his ground there to defend the position of div Bohun in front of Erze Roum which is likewise strengthened with earthworks. It seems evident from a comparison of russian and turkish official dispatches and reports of correspondents that the turks had decidedly the Best of the recent fighting both at Del Baba and Zewin. At the latter place the Brunt of the defences fell on the command of Shefket Pasha notorious for participation in the bulgarian massacres and reports say that he greatly distinguished himself and contributed largely to the turkish Success by personal prowess. Reports from Montenegro continue conflicting but the Best information leads to the belief that the Success of Suleiman and Saib pashas has been Complete. The turks place their entire losses at 2,000 killed and wounded which probably is an under estimate but hardly so far out of the Way As the montenegrin claim of Over 10,000 turks killed. The fighting forces of the montenegrin Are now chiefly wedged in Between the Valley of Zita and the austrian Frontier while Suleiman and Saib pashas Are awaiting the Advance of Mehemet Ali along the Moracha to Clear the Eastern portion of the country and intercept either Valley of the Zita to the Princess Headquarters. Or Down the Moracha into the Putschi mountains. A Telegram via Ragusa from slavonic sources claims the defeat of Mehemet Ali with great Slaughter but it is unconfirmed and probably untrue. It must be remembered that the turkish forces now in Montenegro or on its con fines number some 60,000 men nearly half the total population of the principality. The Case with a which the russians crossed the Danube and the feeble resistance of the turks As far As yet known attracted much attention Here London. Suspicions and suggestions of treachery Are Rife. Russo Hill writers however find an explanation in the conviction that the turkish army itself has Little heart in the struggle and that the unpaid legions and their equally unpaid officers Are not strongly averse to a change in their condition knowing it cannot be worse should they be shut up in their entrenchments. They May resist with characteristic obstinacy but there seems to be an utter absence of that activity which is always the result of heartiness in a struggle and it would not be astonishing to see the whole turkish Force strangely collapse. This View is markedly variant from the accounts of the turkish Danube army Given by the correspondents within its line. The truth probably is that the russians ascertained where the turkish line was weakest through spies and deserves and took an intelligent advantage of such information. Of course it is impossible that the turks have an army within striking distance of every Point available for crossing on a line of nearly 300 Miles. F about Twenty Kilometres in Advance of the infantry. As the turks have no proportionate amount of cavalry to meet them the russians Are scouring the country up to the foot of the Balkans. The turkish outposts Are at Jantra which is their present advanced line. The Center of their army is near Ila Grad the right covering Rustchak and the left stretching toward Shumla. It is reported that Only 12,000 men Are left in Silistria. The first great Battle in Bulgaria we ill probably be fought on the above line if the turks will give Battle in the open Field North of the Balkans. It is probable that there will be Little of interest from the front until new dispositions of the troops by both belligerents made necessary by the russian Advance in the do Brudsche and operations near Sim Nitza Are completed. The russians have had several skirmishes with the turkish outposts on the Jantra. The russian cavalry have penetrated to Plevna and loft Cha on the West and to Tirnovan and Karova toward the Balkans. They appear to be masters of the country Between the Balkans and the Danube and from the Jantra to Plevna. The comptroller of the currency a report. Washington july 2.
