The Constantinople correspondent of the Times writes,

"that on the 311 of June, an insurrection had taken place at Scutari ; sad that after a bloody contest the Governor had been obliged to take refuge it the Citadel, which was closely besieged, and in which there was not inure than twenty days' provision fur the garrison. The movement is ascribed to an attempt to levy a local tax with which to defray the expense of building barracks for the troops of the Sultan."

The Sultan had refused permission to the British Government steamer to proceed to Trebizoitd with the Envoy to the Court of Persia, on the ground that the Porte was bound by treaty not to permit the entrance of any armed vessels, except those of Russia, into the Black Sea.
