The Grand Duke Nicholas, Cesarewitch of Russia, died at Nice

on the 24th inst., of the new epidemic, spinalis meningitis; which has now made its appearance in Savoy. He is said to have been. a man of some promise, though of a sickly constitution, and his next brother is weaker still. It seems to be believed that the family will ultimately transfer the succession to the third son, the Archduke Wladimir, still only a youth. The Czar, the Czarina, and the betrothed wife of the Cesarewitch, the Princess Dagmar, were present at his side when he expired.
