THE CHRONICLE, SATURDAY, JANUARY 19, 1856. CCEPTANCE [ACCEPTANCE] OF THE PEACE PROPOSALS BY RUSSIA. WHAT DOES THAT ACCEPTANCE MEAN On Thursday a feeling of joy was manifest through- [throughout] out the land, as the telegraph winged the news from point to point that Kussia [Russia] had uneone [Union] tionally [finally] accepted the proposals for peace Jy tha [that] a power, which, not a twelvemonth ago broke up the negotiations at Vienua, [Vienna] sooner than consent to the very slight plans proposed by the other powers for the limitation of the Russian fleet in the Black Sea, had now unconditionally consented to receive as the basis for future negotiations for peace terms which preclude altogether a Russian fleet in the Euxine, [Exon] aud [and] which also require the dismantling of fortresses and arsenals on the shores of that sea ; in other words, the annihilation of the Sebasto- [Beast- Sebastopol] pol and other forts, so that they may no longer be regarded and dreaded as a standing menace, by Turkey and other states. The feeling of joy that the blows inflicted on the enemy had already pro- [produced] duced [duce] this undeniable effect, was manifest on every hand-from the Stock-exchange, where the Funds weut [West] up three per cent, to every little gathering at the street corners, aud [and] even in the bosom of private families. ; Many, however, were under a wrong impression, both as to the proposals accepted, and the imme- [Mme- immediate] diate [date] effect to fullow [fellow] upon that acceptance. Some were of opinion that the proposals offered were the actual terms of peace and that the acceptance of those terms by Russia was the actual conclusion of peace. The war, therefore, was looked upon by this class, as being wholly at an end for as Russia had agreed to the terms imposed by the allies, there was nothing further now to fight for. Others, however, more cautious, viewed the matter in its true light looked upon it that the proposals were but offered as a basis upon which peace might be concluded and that their acceptance by Russia simply meant that she was willing to negotiate for peace upon that basis. The bringing of Russia to this point, considering her arrogant conduct during the negotiations at Vienna, is certainly a great step gained is in itself a proud victory for the allied powers but those who recollected the game of delay which Russia had always played; who recol- [recoil- recollected] lected [elected] her adroitness in diplomatic entanglement ; who recollected her former acceptance of the four points, and her subsequent conduct regarding them, when the negotiating powers endeavoured to give them force and effect in a treaty of peace those who recollected all that had passed on that occasion, and the damaging effect which the hopese [hope] raised by the former acceptance had upon the then conduct of the war, saw that the present acceptance was tar from being what others would have it-an end of the contest. How far the Russian acceptance is from the immediate termination of hostilities, may be judged from the following, which is from the Morning Post of yesterday-the organ of the government - It is of much importance that it should be rightly under- [understood] stood that tke [te] proceeding which has hadso [heads] happy anissue [issue] in determining Russia to make large and important concessions is an Austrian proceeding, and that the five proposals, as accepted by Russia, do not contain on the face of them all that the Western Powers consider necessary for their safe entrance upon negotiation. When the Cabinet of Vienna applied to England and France to know the terms upon which they would consent to make peace with Russia, a direct and distinct reply was given. Upon that reply, Austria founded the proposals which Russia has accepted ; but she has not represented to the Czar the whole and exact tenor of our demands; and it would not be fair in us, nor indeed just, either to ourselves or to Russia, to enter upon discussion before the preliminaries have been arranged so clearly and unmistakably that Russa, [Russia] on the one hand, may not have itin [tin] her power to pretend that we have entrapped her into negotiations without making her fully aware of their import-nor we, on the other, be open to the mancurres [manures] of the adroit diplomacy which has already, in former instances, so cleverly amused our ministers. To take an example. In the Austrian proposals the name of the Aland [Land] Islands is never mentioned, but, nevertheless, we believe it will be found that Lord Claren- [Clare- Clarendon] don had emphatically stated to the Cabinet of Vienna that we must insist upon Russia's binding herse g [here g] not to rebuild Bomarsund. [Beaumont] This resolve, justitiable [suitable] on fhe [he] grounds of military success, and requisite as a matter ot high import to the well-being of Europe, becomes imperative, when it is remembered that we have only recently concluded an alliance with Sweden, and that it is our bounden duty not to leave our Ally at the mercy of Russia, nor to permit the re-erection of a huge and menacing fortress within one hundred miles of Stuckholm. [Stockholm] Under these circumstances, then, it will be the duty of the Belligerents, before negotiations can be entered upon, to signify their intentions to Russia, and to require her acceptance of proposals totally free from the pos [post ibility [ability] of misinterpretation. 'These proposals, we trust, will have the support of Austria and the German Powers, and will, we are confident, meet with acceptance at St. Petersburg, if Russia be now really alive to her own interests, and anxious for the welfare of Europe. If they are accepted, then negotiation will follow, but not at Vienna, nor Paris, nor London. All preliminaries being once satisfactorily adjusted, some more fit place will be appointed for the conduct of Conferences. It is far, therefore, from being the fact that Russia has accepted the terms laid down by the allies as the basis upon which they would consent to negotiate peace. She has only accepted the Austrian version of those terms; and it may happen that before we get to the point of negotia- [negotiate- negotiation] tion, [ion] we shall find that the acceptance, which has in some quarters led to very extravagant hopes, is anything but an acceptance of the terms imposed and insisted on by the western powers, Upon this point the Times of yesterday also remarks - hs We caution the the te bh m [in] es and Berlin, fod [food] that p public against the persuasion that of our correspondents at Vienna posted by the French government on the Paris Bourse, necessarily imply what their words certainly, taken in their literal sense, would fairly com- [comprehend] prehend,-that [present,-that ,-that] all the propositions upon which the allies insist, have been unconditionally accepted by Russia. The terms of the fitth [Firth] proposition are general, and do not necessarily include the undertaking not to fortify the Aland [Land] Isles, any more than any other demand the allies might think fit to make. We do not believe that this 4 requisition has yet been specifically submitted to Russia, and, whatever may be the probabilities of the case, we are certainly not justitied [justified] in saying that she has unconditionally accepted it. Two other terms on which we must per- [peremptorily] emptorily [temporarily] insist-the disarming of the eastern coast of the Black Sea, and the allowing consuls of the western powers to reside in the Russian ports on its waters-have been only slightly and ambiguously mentioned. Why this is so we do not kuow, [know] That is the concern of Austria. We are not principals in the negotiation, but have employed the mediation of a third power, whose duty it is to see that Russia be brought to an unconditional acceptance of our terms, with all their stipulations, betore [before] we even enter into negutiation. [negotiations] We do not believe fur a moment that these things are likely to offer permanent obstacles to the con- [conclusion] clusion [conclusion] of peace; but our readers must remember that the announcementis [announcement] that of an Austrian, and not of an English diplomatist, and that he speaks from a point of view not always identical with our own. Pending the ascertainment of the real meaning of this acceptance by Russia, and pending the negotiation which may follow out of that accept- [acceptance] ance-supposing [once-supposing -supposing] it turns out to be as Austria reports, an unconditional acceptance of the terms of the allies-what is to be done Are we to follow Mr, Coppen's [Copper's] advice, and withdraw our armies from the Russian territory Are we to fold our hands, and give up all and every kind of preparation, and watch with contented eye the progress of the diplomatic contest Are we to let the bare acceptance of these new five points benumb us into inaction-to find ourselves, as before, on the failure of the negotiations, in- [inadequate] adequate fur the task immediatel [immediately] y before us, because we have let the precious moments of preparation slip by Is this to be the course pursued by the allies Or rather, are we not to take heart from the success already gained, and be fully prepared when the proper time comes, to inflict still more terrible and vital blows upon the enemy, aud [and] bring him still nearer toreasonableterms [reasonableness On this point the Morning Post observes - In the meanwhile we must keep our energies braced up, and relax not one iota of the prodigious exertions that are being made for the spring campaign. This, we are con- [convinced] vinced, [evinced] 3 the soul of successful negotiation. The voice of Europe is in our favour-our resources are immense-our armainents [eminent] of greater magnitude than ever, The Times also contends that -- Nothing should induce us to relax fora single moment in our preparations until all the stipulations we have men- [mentioned] tioned [toned] have been clearly and unequivocally put by Austria and as clearly and unequivocally conceded. We must remember that by the pressure we have put upon Russia and not by the mediation of Austria, has the present happy alteration in our circumstances been brought about, and that, if we would preserve the advantages of our Position it can only be done by a constant adhesion to the very means by which that change has been produced. Let Russia once see reason to believe that we have allowed the hopes of ease and tranquillity to unnerve onr [one] vigilance and disarm our courage, and the whole work must be done over again; for she will assuredly find means to wrigsle [Wrigley] out of the concessions she has made, and to resume her old atti- [attic- attitude] tude [tue] of haughtiness and defiance, The way to obtain peace is to make our adversary feel thoroughly- [thoroughly what] what is, indeed, no more than the truth how much more necessary that peace is to her than it ig to us. We bave [ave] tried reason and remonstrance with no effect have tried vigour and action with the most encou. [encounter] raging results. By energetic action pelled [celled] the enemy to negotiate; by a conti [cont eneryy [energy] aud [and] that action we shail [hail] by nuance of that toa [to] happy result. It is the common error of historians to attribute in these matters too much to the tal ' 7 ents [ants] of plenipotentiaries, and too little to the relative force of the racting [acting] states. No negotiator was more successfy) [successful] then Charles XII. before the le of Pultawa, [Plate] or Napoleon before the expedition to Moscow, for their arguments were backed by their bayonets, and faults in their logic unnoticed amid the thunder of their cannon. After their signal reverses they negotiated with equal talent but entirely different success, for the power that gave force to their propositions was gone. Now, then, if ever in the course of the war, it is necessary to push on those prepara- [prepared- preparations] tions [tins] which are required for the efficiency of our sea and land forces in the next campaign. Never before was that necessity so urgent; never would the effects of any relaxa. [relate] tion [ion] or remission be so immediately felt, We have the goal in sight, and that ought to induce us rather to double than remit our exertions. By observing this line of cop. duct we shall cither [either] have gained the noblest victory-q solid and lasting peace, or be in a position to inspire thos [this] who shall have withheld it from us with a still more durable repentance, . To the spirit of this appeal, we are certain that the nation will almost unanimously respoud-and [respond-and] desire that every preparation be made to render the next campaign a decisive one, if possible, if peace cannot be concluded before the season arrives, Peace, if Russia pleases, on the terms sent to Austria by the Allies but, if not, another tug for it, when in all probability much better terms for the interests of freedom and iudependence [independence] may be then accepted by Russia-and gladly. - THE NEGLECT OF KARS.--WHO [JARS.--WHO] Is RESPONSIBLE news of the fall of Kars, [Ears] after the gallant and heroic defence by the brave and devoted garrison, was deeply embittered in this country by the knowledge that such a reverse for the brave English commander and the equally brave and endurin [enduring] Turkish troops, could have been prevented, had timely and energetic steps been taken to relieve the noto- [not- notoriously] riously [seriously] suffering defenders of a most important position. That such relief was urgently required ; that the small but brave army, commanded by General WiLLIaMs, [William] was in the utmost strait for want of provisious; [provisions] that the place which had been so heroically defended must fall, from the sheer starvation of the suffering garrison, unless succour and aid was afforded, was as notorious as the gal- [gallant] lant [lane] and heroic deeds performed by this little more than a handful of men-deeds, which have shed a halo of glory around the place which keen gaunt hunger and absolute want of ammunition alone compelled them to surrender; deeds which have immortalised the names of the defenders of this invested city, held, as it was, for so long a period against such fearful odds, and crowned, as their efforts were, by the most terrible and signal victory-terrible for the enemy, but signal for the victors-which this war has yet seen. The reliet [relief] which was of so much importance to be rendered -important to the general cause of the allies, independent of the claims of the garrison to succour and aid-could, without doubt, have been afforded, had the proper steps been taken by those who ought tv have seen to it. For more than six mouths aid the brave garrison endure the horrors and privations of their position-not giving up the place until they were reduced by hunger and want to such a prostrate condition, that when the Russians sent in provisions, a great portion of the inhabitants and troops could not crawl to the places of distribution to receive the food for which they were dying, but they had to be sought out, and tenderly treated, which, to the honour of the Russian soldiery under MouravizrFF, [professorial] was done with most considerate care. It also now turns out that when the surrender of Kars [Ears] was made, with its enduring defenders in this pros- [prostrate] trate [rate] condition, there were not more than three days ammunition in the place. Yet for morethan [more than] six months had the suffering state of this small but heroic band been known; and the regret which England in particular felt that a place of the importance of Kars [Ears] should have fallen into the hands of the Russians, was deeply embittered by the knowledge that the only real success of the enemy throughout the war could have been pre- [prevented] vented had the proper determination and energy been shown. That some one or other was to blame was an inference natural enough under the cireum- [cream- circumstances] stances ;' but where to fix that blame was the difficulty. Some pointed to the government at Constantinople others to the allied commanders in the Crimea; others to the British embassy in the East; others to the Turkish commander at Erzeroum, [Serum] who was so often starting on the march to Kars [Ears] with an army of relief, but who never got off; and others again to Omar Pasua, [Pass] who had attempted a diversion in Mingrelia, [Mineral] in the hope of drawiug [drawing] off the army of Mouravizrr [Moravian] from the investment of Kars-instead [Ears-instead] of at once marching to the latter place, and engaging the enemy to the relief of the garrison. Amid these several parties. to whom blame was attributed, it was scarcely pos- [post- possible] sible for the public mind to fix on the real one, answerable for the neglect which undoubtedly had been exhibited but the public could call for a full enquiry into the matter, which the press, on behalf of the public, was not slow to do-contending that as there bad been a Sebastopol Committee of the Commens, [Commons] there ought also to be a Kars [Ears] Com- [Committee] mittee [matter] for the circumstances of the case loudly called for a searching investigation. Tu the absence of direct accusation against any one party, it was felt that a Parliamentary enquiry was required into circumstances so unsatisfactory in their general result; aud [and] there has transpired that within the. last few days which now renders such an investigation indispensable. It is now distinctl [distinct] averred that it is to the shameful and culpable neglect of Lord Stratrorp [Prostrate] pe Repcuirre [Require] that the fall of Kars [Ears] and the occupancy by the Russians of the key to Asia-Minor is attributable a neglect all the more criminal and unpardonable, because prompted and continued from mere personal ill- [ill feeling] feeling towards the brave and talented General The Times of Wednesday prefers, this highly damaging indictment against the English representative at Constantinople. The subject is thus introduced - In another fortnight parliament will meet, after a recess crowded with momentous incidents. It will be the lot of the legislature to discuss the past and future campaigns, to examine the causes of success or failure, to suggest rewards for eminent services, or to demand enquiry into alleged neglects. In such circumstances we can no longer delay mention of a subject which occupies the minds of those conversant with eastern affairs. We have before alluded to the transactions connected with the siege of Kars, [Ears] and te the comments made on the conduct of Lord Stratford de Redcliffe, the British ambassador at Cor- [Constantinople] stantinople. [Constantinople] The great calamity which has befallen the Turkish arms has given tu these vvents [events] a vast importance, and we should but i perform our duty if we concealed the fact that the neglect and abandonment of the British officers and the troops they so ably led are spoken of and are attributed by persons well intormed [informed] on the matter, to personal feeling on the part of the ambassador towards the English general, whose naine [nine] is now so well know in connection with a long defence of the place. 'I'he matter 18 nutorious [notorious] to all acquainted with the 'l'urkish [l'Irish] capital, ard [ad] not entirely unknown to the world in general, although the formalities of political have generally precluded any allusion to it in pailiament [Parliament] or the press. The position of the English ambassador at Con- [Constantinople] stantinuple, [Constantinople] aud [and] his power to influence the Turkish government for weal or for woe, throughout its utmost ramifications, is thus described - It may be said, then, that it is the misfortune of Lora Strafford to live in a state of dissension with almost every man with whom he is br mht [met] into contact. Althonsh [Although] his aye and position are sufficient to insure due respect, and those who approach have nu wish to be on other than ami- [amicable] cable terms, yet few can hope long to escape sume [sum] outbreak of his violent and groundless illwill. [ill will] He lives in an atmos- [Amos- atmosphere] phere [there] of antipathies, aud, [and] accustomed during so mavy [may] years to intercourse with Turkish officials and to the deference of Levantine [Valentine] he is impatient of any demur to what he conceives his authority. The disregard of his advice, or even the differing from his opinion, is enough to kindle a dislike which may last for years. Such is the man to whom the British government has committed the care of its interests in the Fast. 'Turkish ways are not as our ways, and a minister t home must naturally leave all dealings with this unknown world to the representative and his staff of orientalists and dragumans, [Dragoons] A British ambassador can by a word enforce attention toa [to] request of his government, or mark it out for neglect. Lam to lay this communica- [communicate- communication] tion [ion] before you-do not ask my opinion of it, decide for yourselves, is sufficient to insure the rejection or evasion of a demand, even though it emanated from the Foreign office itseif; [its] for the Porte will fancy that it was never meant to be acceded to, and will, with ready duplicity, acquiesce in the stratagem. Hence it is evident that the whole power of the country he represents must be wielded per- [personally] sonally [signally] by a representative in the East. Aud [And] then follows the Bill of Indictment to which We have referred above, and to the allegations of which, in their detailed circumstantiality, we solicit the careful attention of the reader. He will find in the following more than matter for regret, or even for boiling indignation. He will find in it Matter which ealls [walls] for action, to compel a full enquiry into the circumstances of this most dis- [disgraceful] graceful case -- . Now, the statements to which we wish to call attention are as follows -General Williams, who had been formerly employed on the Turco-Persian [Turk-Persian] Boundary Commission, and had some acquaintance with the people and language of Asiatic Turkey, was in 1854 selected as British Commis [Comms] sioner [sooner] to the Ottoman army in Armenia. The Turks bad been defeated in five battles, and their force was com- [completely] pletely [lately] disorganised. It was thought that the experience of General Williams might be of service in the reconstitu- [reconsider- reconstitution] tion [ion] of the army and the defence of the threatened pro- [province] vine s, s] He was chiefly by a quiet, unas- [una- unassuming] suming [summing] disposition, so much so that few of his friends gare [are] him credit for the resvlution [resolution] and sternness which he dis- [displayed] played in the defence and government of Kars, [Ears] It is diffi- [diff- difficult] , cult, therefure, [therefore] to conccive [conceive] the grounds of the ambassador's in set phrase,
