" 1 am happy to open l'atltararnt and to see assembled round roe the Deputies of the nation. Ituttla, as you are awaer, hit year declared war agsuift us, and our Government wt coMtriin'd to defend Itself and repel the aggrrs - sion. This war till continues. Two years and a half ago dirturlnnces iToVe out in Herzegovina and. spread into .other Idealities. In spite of ths equality in .the eyes of the law which all our subjreta enjoy. and the immunities and their language, a part - of our populations tdflered itself to be drawn, without any known motive, into tbe path of illegality. TVs - misguided men not only injured their fatherland and their fellow - citizens, but they also brought upon themselves the gravest, prejudice. The united Principalities, which had the fortune to possess an independent infernal administration, asuxmed an attitude of hostility towards oar Government without any legitimate re ucu. All these grave events, unprecedented in our hittory, have considerably increased the difficulties of the war; but the country, in order to make head against them, has made It its duty to put forth all the power ef rnUtance ef which it is capable. All Ottomans, by tbe abnegation of which they have given proof In this war, hare shown that they were prompted by the highest sentiments of patriotism. The courage and valour of our soldiers have been the object of the admiration of the whole world. I continue to appeal to the aid and patriotism ef all of you, in order to protect our sacred rights. The formation of the Civie Guard, which is daily perfecting and completing itelf , and the eagerness with which our non - Mussulman subjects present themselves to take part in this patriotic service, are matters of real satisfaction to eur Government. Tbe Constitution, while confirming and corroborating the rights and immunities which our non - Mussulman subjects enjoyed, granted them equality of rights, from which results t:. f .4 . .' - - T. V ... f . V - . . - fc.. 1 .V.. .1. thould be called to military service, which is the first of duties and eves the foundation of equality. The proof, too, which they give of their conscientiousness in tbeway ofdnty has bees duly appreciated, and it baa. been de. tided to throw opes all ranks of tbe other branches of our armies to the nos - Massalmaa popdatiou. The salvation of the Empire depends entirely, upon the complete and sincere carrying out of the Constitution. Our greatest wish has been to see all classes of our subjects en - joy the benefits of a complete equality and our country profit by the progress of modem dvilitatios j tbe .reform introduced into tbe finances, the fulfilment of all our engagements, the distribution, is accordance with the principles of political economy, of the taxes and dues ; the collection of tbe revenue in sn'ch a manner as not to injure tbe ini crests ef the population ; tbe revision ef cur jndleUI system is conformity with the requirementsfof the time, in order to insure the impartial administration of Justice by our tribunals ; tbe reform respecting the property of the Vicojfs with a view to facilitate the acquisition of landed property ; the formation of communes, and the specification of their powers as an essential basis for tie administrative fabric; and lastly, the reorganization of the Gendarmerie But the war has postponed the fulfilment of thes - 5 withes. Furthermore, the calamities of the war have exceeded all limits j a numerou population, noo - eombetant and' inoffensive women and children, whose life and' honour ought according to the ussgts of war to have bees respected, have been subjected to cruel treatment revolting to humanity. I am pleaved to hope that in the future nothing will prevent tb troth in that respect from coming to light.

Tbe brigades constituting our left wiog forced the Hussians to to retreat to Metchki and carried their entrenchments, but the ltutsiaus receiving reinforcements from Uii - la, resumed the offensive on - our .left wing. The resiitanoo offered by Fazll Pasha and a successful diverion made by Ssbit Pasha, who was poited at the Tchauuch bridge, paralyzed the enemy's "eTTorts. We were, however, unable to hold the entrenchments on account of a cross fire from the Metchke heights. At the same time a Russian ironclad on the Danube cannonaded our right flank, but ahe wat obliged to retire on the arrival of our monitors. - Darkest coming on, our troops re - occupied their original position. The battle lasted over seven hours over an extent of country requiring six hours' march. Three thousand Rus - sians were killed and a gunpowder store at Metchka was blown np. The enemy's forces consisted of GO battalions and 80 guns. Our.losses were comparatively small." SERVIA. BELGRADE, Dec. 14.

Judgment wras given at Liverpool yesterday by Mr. Rothery, Q.O.,who,witn two nautical assessors, bad Investigated the circumstances which the London sailing ship Duesbery was stranded on a coral reef in tbe Gulf of Mexico on tbe 18th of August lsst. When the master was being examined, Mr. Tyndall, for the Board of Trade, questioned him as to whether he bad said the ship would never reach her destination, and' be gave hesitating negative replies. Mr. Tyndall asked him whether, a few days before the vessel went aground, he did not say that sho would never reach her destination, and would get ashore somewhere. Witness said be remembered nothing of that. The Commis.ioner asked whether he would swear it did not occur. Witness said be would not swear, as remarks might have been made in jest. He felt confidence b bis ship. She sailed well, but was not what might be called a. fast sailing vessel. Mr. Tyndall formally charged the captain with careless navigation, with neglecting to use proper means to get the ship off the reef, and with neglect In navigation. The Commissioner said that there appeared to be no ground for the im - Elied charge that the captain, had deliberately cast away is vessel, and be did not think it necessary to examine one of the ownenfprescnt. With Tcgard, however, to the charge of negligence In the navigation of the vessel and thus causing her lost, a more grots act of negligence it had seldom bex tbe experience of the Court to meet with than the carebMsness of the captain in taking soundings, and the course steered after the sounding bad been taken, With rtferenea to tbe means sdpM for getting the ship off the reef, bad an anchor been put out immediately ef K - r she took the ground the .vetse) would have been hsu(od off into deep water, and pepUMy have been saved j but when this rsmoiy was tried fix hours' lattr. when the shin had affiled W) tls m; it WM huHs p Jwit thftt U eoufd R0t tusl. 114 tbe etttW w InsoWUt iglnl the fnfla utr nr Am ijuvii itinucu. ilia i;aurt w&i not nulla turn iknfciiig ihu ...1.11 iMiWj m tt iHtintll riff ., It ItoM h lh j .Wb TbalUa. 3 ihS LeatTtVei. in SiSSJllOi I (Jam wtml I hul livst iiisu,i far on wmm iu mbiI jiU filliest.

Thoro have arisen during this war some nlco (juwtioiis of International law which ure well worthy the' attention of publicists, ami especially of English publicists. Tho I'orte.as is well known, has proclaimed a blockade of the wholo coasts of tho Ulack bea from TreLiond to the mouth of the Danube, and maintains this blockade by a force of cruisers in tho Ulack Sea itself. . The question has, indeed, been raised whether this blockade Is " effective." It is said, with truth, that a certain number of vessels huve, as a matter of fact, left the blockaded ltrU and found their way to the broad waters of tho Ulack Koa without being stoppud or challenged. It is, however, a all international lawyers know, a delusion to suppose that the fact of a few, or even of a large number, of vessels having escaped, ronders the blockado ineffective, for this happeus in all blockades. The American war, to go no further back, furnished numberless instances of it ; and, in point of fact, the occurrence of such inctdonts only becomes of consequence when they are tho rule instead of being tho exception, and then only as 'evidence capablo of being rebutted. The Declaration of Paris, according, in this respect, with the truo ruloof International I aw, requires that a blockado, in order to bo obligatory, must be effective that is to say, must be, not a " paper blockade," like those declared by Napoleon in the Berlin and Milan decrees, and by England in the Orden in Council " of 1800 and 1807, ' but " maintained by a force sufficient really to prevent access to the coast of tho enemy," which is denned by the publicist to mean that such access cannot be made without evident imminent danger. Piow, there is not only a force of Turkish cruisers in that Bea itself, - ' which force has actually prevented access in all but a very few cases, but there is more. The only entry to the Black Sea for neutrals is through the Bosphorus ; every vessel, therefore, seeking to break the blockade, either by entering or leaving the blockaded ports, must necessarily ?aas tnrough the Bosphorus ; and at its mouth the urkish Government have placed two cruisers, which present, not merely an evident imminent danger to the blockade - runner, but make it absolutely impossible for him to pass at all a complete condition of things which could be presented by no other conceivable blockade whatever. These things being so, it has happened that some half - a - dozen vessels, belonging mostly to Greeks, have come out of Russian ports, have escaped the Black Sea cruisers, and havepresented themselves to the second line of cruisers at the mouth of the Bosphorus By these they have been detained, and duly submitted to the Prize Court sitting at Constantinople. This Prize Court has, strange to say, been much exercised as to. its decision in such coses. Tho Court . was, or affected to be, for some time in doubt as to whetuer the vessels were good prize or nor. It was argued that, inasmuch as the vessels, being neutral, had escaped from the cruisers in the Black Sea, thoy wort thenceforth free and could not ha captured by tho cruisers at the mouth of the Bosphorus, In reply to this, however, it was pointed out that the cruisers at the mouth of the. Bosphorus were a portion and tho most ellootual portion of tho blockading force, and that, evou if tho blockado runitori had passed tliwo and arrived In tho Mtnlltermnt - an, thoy could still bo tapturod by Turkish crillscr for breach of blockade tl ntiy rule, mi tneir trociu voyage was THE O ATT LB RllOW. ended. Tho dvcUlotis of Lord Htnwtdl, and tho The Agricultural - hall is a spacious building ; hut any person who has had to fight his way from ne part to another of the interior, well picked as it is with exhibits, ami when all the available avenues and spaoea are densely crowded with people, as on Wednesday evening, when probably 25,000 visitors, were lusiila the hall at one time, must have reflected how desirable it is that moro ample' means of egress should be provided in cose of a serious alarm. It is profitable enough while the turnstiles spin merrily round - to the perpetual jingling of the shillings ; but, if additional doorway cannot bo opened, perhaps the suggestion that tho turnstile barriers should bo made easily removable may be worthy of considers, tion. Yesterday 12,320 visitors paid for admission, .making the total number during the five days of the Show, 121,007. Tho most surprising classes of sheep are the Hampshire or Wiltshire Downs ; yet only a few years ago tho specimens of this breed exhibited were usually pasted with the remark that they were high - standing, leggy animals with clumsy heads, and more distinguished for bone than for thick mutton on their backs. Now we have Hampshire of exceod - inglygroat merit for their weight of mutton and for frames greatly refined, while more lengthy, expanded, and deep than ever. Mr. Alfred Morrison's shearling wethers, winning the first prize and the 20 cup as best of the breed, are wonuerful sheep for weight, form, and character ; and the second prize pen of the same exhibitor was not far behind in quality. Mr. Lewis Loyd's sheep were third, and tho other wethers in the class were commended. The whole class of ewes, with the first prize going to Messrs. J. A. and Thomas Palmer, and the second to Mr. James Road, were commended by tho Judges. The same high approval was bestowed upon the whole class of fat wether Iambs, and this was certainly the most extraordinary class in the show. Sir Edward Ilulse's first prize lambs, at nine months and two weeks old, have a live weight of lewt, Sqr. 01b. per lamb. Mr. W. T. Twidell s second prize lambs have nearly the same weight ; and one pen of three lambs, at 10 months old, has a live weight of lewt. 3qr. 201b. per lamba growth and feeding which are marvellous. The Shropshire are few in number, but of fully average merit. For wethers Mr. Thomas Nock was first, and took the 20 breed cup, fairly beating Lara Chesham, who, however, took the second ana third prizes with exceedingly level and fine sheep. For ewes Lord Chesham was first, and Mr. John Coxon second. Unly one pen oi lambs nas appeared, and this not of sufficient merit to command a prize. The Oxfordshire! are content with a very modest entry and pens of sheep not beyond the usual merit of this great and profitable breed. For wethers Mr. A lbert Brassey was first, Mr. Nathaniel Stilgoe second, and Mr. Zachariah W. Stilgoe third. Sir. A. F. M. Druce won the first prize and the 20 cup for the best of the breed with a splendid pen of ewes, and. takes the second prize with another lot not so good. Mr. Albert Brassey had the first prize for a very good pen of lambs. The Duke of Hoxburghe is first for Cheviots, with Mr. Albert tf rasey second. For Donets, Mr, Herbert Farthing was first and second; and the third prize U awarded to Mr. J, Snell Tucker for a pen of South ilnms wethers, Mr, Herbert Farthing took both prizes for Dorset ewes and tho nrst prize for Dorset lambs, with Mr. J. B. Tucker gaining tho labour - saving apparatus for excavating railway and the machine bein, second honours. For Mountain sheep, Mr. It. J. Htrnnger and Lord l'oltimoro worn first ami second with Kxuioori, and Mr. Charlei i'lutn liter first and second with Muck - faced sheep.

Tbe blockade of the Black Sea has, indeed, absolutely, destroyed tho wholo of tbe Urge itussian trade effected through its ports ; while, as the Baltic ports are frozen up, the whole sea - borne trade of the itussian Empire is closed, which is an injury to ber such as even England could never inflict upon an enemy in the palmiest days of our maritime supremacy. The Turkish Government has awaited the decision of the Prize Court with patience, and has replied to the foreign Ambassadors that it must be bound by the law which should be thus duly declared, whatever the consequences might be. Not so the Greeks. They have used every kind of pressure, both to socuro their vessels from capturo and then to prevent their condemnation. It is a fact that a Turkish Admiral was offered 2,000 by a Greek merchant residing in Constantinople to let his ship pass, and it is also a fact. that the greatest press uxo has been exercised on members of the Prize Court to induce them to oppose condemnation after capture. The sentence, however, has now been pronounced, and has already gone up to the Court.of Appeal, which cannot but confirm it. Another point of International Law arises out of the practice pursued by the Hussians of sending out from Odessa fast steamers, which, while they caretully avoid Turkish cruisers, capture Turkish merchantmen, burn them there, and then set tho crews adrift in a boat. This is distinctly a violation of International Law, which prescribes, for very good and apparent reasons, that captures shall be taken into a port of the captor, and there submitted to a Prize Court before they can be dealt with further, the only exception to this rule being the case of necessity, which in this instance does not arise. To act as the Russians have acted is to constitute the captain of tho capturing vessel himself a Prize Court, in which he is at once prosecutor, witness, and judge, a proceeding which is on the face of it unlawful, and which has never been allowed in any war carried on by nations professing to be civilized. It ia, moreover, purely an act of cruelty, which can have no influence on tho war, to burn small merchant vessels on the High seas and to expose their crews in small boats ; and the cruelty is inflicted exclusively upon private individuals by vessels which only show their heela to the public enemy. These proceedings, nevertheless, bare, been continually repeated, ana the Turkish Government would undoubtedly be justified in exercising reprisals, which it might easily do. either by bom barding Odessa or by destroying the prirato vilhu, including the Emperqr'a At tlvadia, with which the poat pf tba Crimea, is lined, This coursa has, indeed, been proposed, but the Porte haa hitherto declined to adopt it, believing that Iti own remon Ptraneen would h Attended to ami fupported by the remonitranee of the Power, who, taking, a they do, po inueh interest in atFodtiH Rhfe, cannot be liidtfleftmt to RtFttdtiei on the m, MAHLiOROUOH Il0U8li Mf, lUwllniOn, U.H., wfltrl (0 MitVullJtf i11 Alt old tlfatfii Khtlhll taJtiUdMllt tell art being fertiatrd ffpU the Ulttueol ef MsflbefuUh iibUse.

Mr. Saunders's small white Berkshire took the 15 cup. There was a large class of single pigs, tho prizes going to Mr. John Coate and Lady A. Murray. 1 ha pigs shown by the Queen and by the Prince of Wales in several classes hive not been successful competitors on the present occasion. The department of machinery and implements may be pronouncedamore interesting than usual, owing to tho large number of novelties and improvements which were to be found upon various stands both on the ground floor, in the arcade, and in the closely - packed galleries. Messrs. Aveling and Porter, of Rochester, exhibited a pair of their traction engines, constructed with fore - carriages, which con be shifted forward without removal to make room for attaching a rope drum for ploughing. The Beverley Iron and Waggon Company have produced a new and improved portablo engine and treble blast finishing thrashing machine of new construction. Messrs. Davev, I'axman, and Co., of Colchester, showed a novel machine invented by Captain Dc'f for evenly spreading either long or short farmyard manure. This invention greatly differs from an apparatus for the same purpose invented by Mr. It. Willacy ; it is yoked behind a cart, and tho manure, pulled off in the usual manner, instead of falling in heaps on the ground, is broadcasted by the machine, entirely dispensing with the manual labour of spreading. Messrs. W. Crossbill and Sons, of Beverley, showed carts and waggons with machine - made wheels. Messrs. Clayton and Shut - tleworth, of Lincoln, exhibited their nowly improved portablo and superbly finished fixed steam - engines. Messrs. John Fowler and Co., of the Steam Plough Works, Leeds, have added a remarkably simple contrivance to their implement for altering the width of furrow ; in their road locomotive a cap or uard has been introduced which prevent? the riving pin from working loose ; thoir powerful and complete farm locomotive has a steel boiler made of a single plate, thus avoiding a great number of rivets. Messrs. Fowler report avast extension of the home trade in staim ploughing machinery. Messrs. It. Garrett and Sons, of Loiston, Saxmundham, make the fire - box in their engines with a corru - ?ated top, which obviates tho necessity for stays, Ieurs.lt, HornsbyandSon3,of (iruntham.have made considerable improvements in their reaping raacmnes, tne principal one peinga most ingenious simplification of the arrangement by which the: de? livery of the rukea ii pontrollea - ft single rotating horizontal earn being employed in place of the pur pinions lately Meri.

Barford and Perkins, of Peterborough, have invented a now modo of setting thoir steam cultivator in and out of work. Jlr. Charles Clay, of Wakefield, showed improvements in the construction of his cleansing cultivator. Messrs. Samuelson and Co., of Banbury, have introduced into their reaping machine a "JSn - trivauce of extraordinary simplicity for adjusting the delivery by one or more of the ram armsj mis Demg oone oy instantaneously smiting tho friction rollers so as to hit or miss a portion of the fixed guide or cam. Messrs. Burgess and Key, of II ol born Viaduct, have effected a remarkable improvement in the cutting parts of their reaping machines the jaws through which the knife sections work bein.; now made separate and removable from the fingers. The most striking novelty in the show was the " Pedestrian Broadside Digser," of Mr. T. C. Darby, of Pleshy Lodge, Chelmsford, in which a number of forks are actuated by a most singular arrangement of levers and eccentrics from a horizontal shaft placed alongside a locomotive engine boiler. Tho engino is partly supported upon wheels set transversely and partly upon feet which rise and fall in conjunction with the' spades, causing tho engine to shift sideways with a sort of hobbling motion. A working model shows that there is a sound principle at the bottom of this strange, but ingenious invention; and it is announced that the full - sized machine of eight - horse power has dug at the rate of five acres ; per day of wheat stubble on strong clay land,' turning the soil to 10 inches depth. Messrs. Denton i and Jutsum, of IS'ew Broad - street, have brought i out a most valuable novelty, in addition to their j unequalled colours and varnishes namely, a liquid composition, which permanently defends any bright ! metal surfacesacaihstrustor tarnish, quickly dryine. so that no dirt adheres, and at the same time beimr cheaper than tallow. Another new speciality of theirs is a priming composition for coach - painters. Messrs. Shand, Mason, and Co., of Upper Ground - street, Blackfriars - road, have added improvements to their renowned steam power fire engines, and have now made in a new form a portable fire - pump for use by hand, which will throw six gallons of water per minute to a height of 35 feet. As usual, magnificent collections of roots, seeds, and cereal specimens have ornamented the Show, the grandest being the stands of Messrs. Thomas Oibbs and Co., of Half Moon - street, Piccadilly, the seedsmen to the Royal Agricultural Society : Messrs. Sutton and Sons, of Heading ; Messrs. JameSfCarter and Co., of High Holborn ; Messrs. George Gibbs and Co., of Down - street, Piccadilly ; Messrs. E. Webb and Sons, of Wordsley ; Messrs. Raynbird and Co., of Basingstoke ; and Mr. John K. King, of Coggeshall. The proposal, originated by Mr. Thomas B. Ayshfdrd, of tho Britannia Carriage Works, Ful - ham, for a testimonial to the Assistant Secretary of the Smithfield Club, Mr. David Pullen, has met with a hearty response from exhibitors and others, and the present is intended to be a New Year's gift of a timepiece, with a purse containing the handsome sum of 500.
