The Russian hospital ship Orel is expected at Shanghai. The " Times" St Petersburg correspondent says that Admiral Birileff eventually succeeds Bozjestvenski. The latter, although his nerves are shattered, is believed to be physically able to engage ;,,the foe, and once he arrives at Vladivofltock, he will be entitled to resume the post of chief of the naval staff.
