Mcbride jr., one of the Propri tors of the Bergen House at it. Vernon was shot and killed on the 15th by William s. Bergen. To Etc cause of the Sag Houli from the passes leading Down to the Valley of Araxes is Steep and difficult As is also the descent from the Kas Ber Range to Kelly which is about half an hours March from the Araxes. If the turks stand their ground which they can Only do if they have sufficient men guarding the Northern approaches to Erze Roum the Plain of Araxes will be the scene of a sanguinary Battle. The great length of the russian lines communicating with the two garrisoned fortress of Kars and Batum in their rear necessitates great caution on their part because if the turks had sufficient Enterprise or available forces they would Long since have sent Large reinforcements by sea to Batum and endeavoured to break through the Circle which the russian corps has been forming on the Heights around the land Side of that town. A vigorous Effort in this direction might yet save Erze Roum.

The same cannot be said for the turks who see a regiment in every Cossack and shut their eyes in terror. They have not like the russians any Friendly population to assist them with information. The disposition and state of preparation of the opposing forces leads to the belief that there will be heavy Cann Nading All along the Danube coupled with raids and feints in various directions under the cover of of which there will be simultaneous attacks by the russians in Force Ato Lenit a Rustchak Siskova and turn Magu Relli with diversions at Kalafat and Brail. It is not probable that anything of importance in the Way of crossing in Force will take place for the next week. Whatever May be the other Points at which crossing will be finally attempted Rustchak seems particularly unlikely to be left unmolested As on the Possession of Rustchak will depend the command of the railway which is of the greatest importance to the russians. In refer ence to the report which states that another crossing is confidently expected at Hir Zova with the View of gaining the Short line Railroad running from Tchern Wada to Kus Endami any attempt at an effective resistance would probably cause such an attempt in Force to be abandoned As a March through the fever haunted do Brudsche ought to be As rapid As possible.
