We do not recollect but one single success which the combined fleets of England and France, both in the Baltic and the Black Seas, achieved during the Russian war. That was the reduction of the fortification of Kinburn by the iron-plated vessels introduced by Louis Napoleon. That experiment served to demonstrate the capacity of vessels sheltered with that metal to resist the fire of the forts. But it is, of course, clear that fortifications sheltered in the same armor would be equally invulnerable by ships of war, and an English periodical has lately argued that this defence can be provided as readily and even more economically for fortifications than ships.

Thonvenel, Minister of Foreign Affairs, requesting to know what was the rank and social position of the gentlemen and ladies who desired the honor of being presented to their Imperial Majesties." "I believe I am correct in saying that Mr. Dayton simply replied that the persons for whose presentation he had applied were ladies and gentlemen who would be received by the President of the United States.
