Sigel on the Russian alliance.

--Gen. Sigel made a speech at Wheeling, Va., last week. A report of it says:

‘ He took the ground that the fever through the country, now prevailing, for an alliance with Russia, was a new danger, and also a danger indeed. It would be a diplomatic alliance — not one of principle, and it would lose us moral support and sympathy from the only friends we had in Europe. The liberty-loving masses of Europe — of England, France, Germany, Poland, Hungary, hate Russia. Besides, such an alliance would bring us no strength. What avail is Russia? She seeks us for her own diplomatic, selfish purposes.
