What Russia is Fighting for. THE Russian ' St. Petersburg Gazette,' in a serios of articles on "The objects of the present war," says :-" Without the Black Sea : and the Dardanelles we can no longer live. We must open a road for ourselves to the Mediterranean. . . . It is impossible to calculate all tho material losses we have suffered for want of such a road. Our agriculturists did not know what to do with their corn ; our merchants did not venture to use their capital in the market, the consequence of which was that the amount of capital in Russia was daily diminishing ; our artizans did not know what scope to give to their labor. Hundreds of factories were closed; thousands of workmen remained without work ' and bread; the rute of exchange continued to fall, and our banks failed one after the other, bringing down with them the whole property of many families. All this happened in time of peace, and for the sake of peace. . . If for pence we have sacrificed everything, from war we...
