Mr. Bigelow to Mr. Seward

No. 288.]

Sir: The conference of the great powers, now sitting in Paris to provide for the exigency created by the deposition of Prince Couza, has already held two sessions. I understand that France l as recommended that the old union, under a single Hospodar should be renewed. The Journal La France says that the Ottoman ambassador has been charged by his government to advocate the same policy.

I am, sir, with great respect, your obedient servant,


Hon. William H. Seward, Secretary of State, Washington, D. C.
