The German St. Ptterdmrg Gazette, in an article on ''Jsngland and die ^rf»j tion in the East,' says that the news that y^gianH has persuaded the Porte to T»ab»» concessions in tlw Roumanian conventions question has produced great astonishment in diplomatic frrHps.

Sandy Creek iteelf, heuu; deep aad narrow, cannot be cjoaued by horsemen, where the road crosses, as the sides are left qnite perpendicular. Beyond this point, «fce creeks are in even worse condition The quantity of limber and debris, left by the flood on the road, is enormous, and in many places it quite blocks the way.
