In thu Houso of Commons Gladstone
asked, firstly, If It was the Intention of the
Government, In the recent communication re
garding the Congress to reserve to Itself liber
ty to withdraw from the, Cougre upon the
proposal to discuss any matter the discussion
of which It did not think admissible; and sec
ondly, why England refused a preliminary con
ference. Northcote replied, firstly, that all
that England wanted at tk Oeagres waa th
discussion of every arttel of tk treaty; and
secondly, that Derby' dltpatek gar th rea
son for decliaing a prebaalaary eeuftreac.
A London dispatch of April oth. says:
Th Post publish tk following In etml-OBV

line ot Lord Salisbury' dispatch, is not un
willing to take Into consideration the view
suggested by Vienna's statesman. To-day the
prospect Is mora paclac, bat the govenmMt
should guard against a surprise at Constanti

assure the Porto of Kuglaud's support against
any sudden advance ot tho Russians."
Tho standard publishes tho following In sim
ilar form: "We understand that tho present
Intention Is to keep the chaauel squadron near
Malta available for th transportation of troops
therefrom. Every arrangement baa heeu made
so that 3,000 or 4,000 troop could be embarked
In a few hours."
A London dispatch of April Oth snys:
There seems to bo some hope ot a renewal ot
Congress negotiations, unless a collision is pre
cipitated by the necessity for counteracting
military nu'wurvs. The posltloi at Constanti
nople Is regarded as so doubtful, even threat
ening, for England, that very slight modifica
tions of the situation might be considered to
to warrant action which would amount to a
breach ot neutrality. As longas Vlflk Pasha
remains Turkish Premier, a Russian-Turkish
alliance Is considered out of the question. The
Loudon stock market open with Indications of
reuewed confidence, aud with active specula
tion in consols on Russian securities, at slight
ly higher price.
