16 SEPTEMBER 1876, Page 2

There has been no war news this week of any

importance. It is clear that, either the Times' correspondent exaggerated the im- portance of the battle of Alexinatz, or the Turkish army was too ill-supplied to move and take advantage of its success. There has been some little fighting—an attempt of the Turks to cross from the left to the right bank of the Morava, which was de- feated, and an attempt of the Servians to cross in the other direc- tion t Katun, which suceeeded,—and a little skirmishing by the Montenegrin army, but nothing worth notice. Possibly the military situation depends at present on the pblitical.
