According to the London corresdent of the New York Herald, the Prince of Wales, speaking to an intimate friend recently, expressed his opinion of Russian affairs as follows : “ When I stood in the Church of St. Petersburg on the memorable day when the funeral ceremonies of the late Czar took place, I never felt so uncomfortable in my life. I wondered whether the entire structure might not be blown up, and whether mines were not laid under our feet to blow us all into enternity. In St. Petersburg I first gained a clear idea of the situations m which Alexander found himself. The Czar has no less than 600 aides-de-camps, whereas I and the Queen have only six between us. To begin such reform as the Nihilists wish, the Czar must first dismiss most of these, and thousands of officials besides, and every person thus dismissed from the Court would become an enemy quite as dangerous as the individual Nihilists. Even the Nihilists themselves do not know the difficulties of the Czar’s position, desirous as he is of promoting the interests of the empire and of the people committed to his care.”
