Russian Disasters in Asia.

--The last advices from Constantinople report the failure of certain operations lately attempted by the Russians in the interior of Asia. A correspondent writes from Tiflis on the 20th ult.: ‘"In confirming the report already puplished of the sad result of the Russian expeditions against the Daghestance and Caucasian tribes in the Mountain, I am able to state, from reliable information I have received, that the Russian loss much exceeds what has been stated, especially among the officers of the higher ranks. No less than six Generals have been killed. Prince Earlatinski has sent from this 3,000 camels and horses to carry the numerous wounded to the different military hospitals."’
