[Per s.s. Te Anau, at the Bluff.] London, Dec. 19. Owing to the recent terrible catastrophe at the Ring Theatre, all the theatres 1 in Vienna have since been forsaken by the public. The lessees have waited af; a deputation upon the Emperor to request that some action may be taken to dissipate the panic in the public mind, as every precaution has been taken for public safety, and ask that an official assurance may be given of this fact. Fogs of unusual severity have been experienced in the Midland Counties. Several cases of loss of life are reported of persons who missed their way owing to the denseness of the atmosphere, and had fallen into canals and been drowned. An investigation into the cause' of the • panic at the church in Warsaw disclosed the fact that the false alarm had been raised by a Jewish pickpocket, and this fact becoming known, the rage of the populace of the city was incited, and they proceeded to commit great outrages on the Jewish inhabitants. The Jewish shops and places were gutted, and the Jews had to fly for their lives, many of them being severely maltreated. The riots were not quelled until the military were called out and the streets patrolled by bodies of soldiery. Miss Reynolds, a prominent member of the Irish Ladies’ Land League, has been sentenced to one month’s imprisonment for inciting the tenantry of Ireland to refuse to pay their rent.

The Nihilists have made a determined attempt to destroy the southern portion of the town of Cronstadt, where the great naval station of Russia (which is capable of containing thirty-five ships of the line) is situated.
