St. Petersburg May 27. Your correspondent had an interview recently with a prominent russian Diplomat whose name i am not at Liberty to disclose. Asking whether russians intentions were As disinterested As she had announced in her circular notes to the Powers of Europe i was told that Russia intended to redeem her pledge As far As the aggrandizement of territory went but should she prove victorious she would insist upon the mde Pende ice of Bulgaria Herzegovina Loumania Servia and Bosnia and she would guarantee these provinces their Independence no matter against what Power. She would form a defensive and offensive Alliance with these liberated territories. Upon my asking whether constantinople in the event of Russia gaining decisive victories would be occupied by Russia i was informed that Long before an army could be brought in front of the Walls of constantinople peace would be made. The terms of peace we Ould perhaps include the surrender on the part of Turkey of a portion of her Fleet and the consummation of a treaty placing the City of constantinople under the joint control of All the foreign Powers. Up to this time a cosmopolitan City has frequently been talked of and several theories have been brought Forward for its government but it has never been practically tried. On constantinople the first attempt will be made. The City will probably be garrisoned by troops of a Neutral Power while its virtual government will be invested in a legislative and executive body of men composed of different nationalities and perhaps a tax or tribute will be paid to the ottoman Empire.
