Mr. Dun to Mr. Olney.


The following telegram has been received from Allen, dated October 11:

I have received to-day a detachment of marines from the Yorktown. Chargé d’affaires of Russia the same. English consul sent immediately for a war vessel. Missing Queen deposed. Succession of Her Majesty’s family will be discontinued and three years’ mourning can be avoided, and therefore Her Majesty’s demise not yet announced. But notwithstanding it is generally believed cabinet ministers are in sympathy with Japanese.
