The campaign in the East is supposed to be on

the eve of com- mencing. General Wittgenstein has finally given up his command of the Russian forces, on account of his advanced age and ill state of health. Count Diebitsch has assumed the direction of the Im- perial army. The Polish troops are not to take part in the war, as was expected. lt. has again been stated, but with more confidence than before, that the Turkish Sovereign has finally acquiesced in the treaty of the 6th July.
