The m-wi by this arrival consi.ts morcly of an extension of the peace rumor* by the prv 1 vious steamer. Russia's answer to the proposal* of the Allies could not arrive before the 10th. *Dd w>uld not probably for ?<>uie day* later It is expected the answer will contain nei ther an absolute atvent nor refusal, but will make counter proposals to be settled by re newed conferences. The feeling in England continues warlike In France it is again becoming so Russia continues incessant preparations foi another campaign. There is nothing later from the Crimea, ex oept that the French blew up tho docks at be battopol on the 2Vth December. Affairs in Asia are unchanged. British news is unimportant The grand council of the Allied gonerah was still open at Paris The conference for the adjustment of th< Danish Sound dues was indefinitely postponed Sweden is making active warlike prepare tion?. The Baltic arrived at Liverpool on the morn ing of the bth. The latest Berlin papers do not speak un favorably of the disposition of Russia to con sider tho Allied proposals NECoJIIj UISPATCH.

Monej was easy with a good demand at 5 per cent for government securities. At Paris the 3 pei cents closed at decline. Foreign ex change? were generally better ASIA. The Russian army took its position at Kars on the 3d December Tho troops were being I quartered in the town, leaving a small de ta< hmont of Cossacks occupying the fortifica tions at Sobanly-Dagh, and at Zeni-Keni, a 1 villago on the road to Erzerouut. The Rus ' aians had collected large stures of provisions. The Russian General was apprehensive ol an attack upon Kars by Selitn Pacha, and conpequently ha? concentrated all his availa ble forces at that point. Seliui l'acliu was en camped in the mountains of Dereh-Boynon. A Russian attack upon Erzerouin was not considered probable at present, in conse quence of the exhaustion of the troops and the statu of tho road? Omar Pacha had arrived at Batuum His army suffered much from a lack of provisions, before reaching Kutais, and being unable to proceed had deemed it prudent to return The fall of Kars had rendered Omar very unpopular at Constantinople ? Gen William had arrived at Guniri The counsel of war at Constantinople w?? directing all its efforts to the defence of Erze rouin and Tribizoude. AUSTRIA It is again confidently asserted that Austria will submit peaco proposition to the Gorman Diet, and call on that body to support them Crimea ?

The railway between St. Petersburg and Moscow is to be protected by redoubts, and each redoubt is to be occupied by a battalion of militia. ENGLAND. There is nothing of special importance from England. A Paris letter, alluding to the recent report that the United States had made a treaty with tho .-uah of Persia, guaranteeing the territory on the Persian Gulf, says that. " though no such treaty has been made, yet it is certain that tho most friendly advances have been made, and it is unfortunate that, at the moment Russia and America are intriguing with the Shah, that a suspension of Persian diplomatic relations with England should have taken place " ITALY. There is considerable excitement at Rome in consequence of the report that Mexico has suppressed her legation and withdrawn her minister.
