With the New Czar Will Come New Advisers.

London, Nov. 1. -- The correspondent of the Daily News says the French party in Russia and the Russian party in France intend to jointly use their influence to induce the new Czar to enter into a regular offensive and defensive alliance between the two powers. It is believed, however, that they will not succeed in attaining anything beyond the maintenance of the present entente.

It is stated in well-informed quarters that the Chief Court Minister, Prince Worontzoff-Dashkoff, will retire. He was for many years the close personal friend and companion of the Emperor, but was never a persona grata with the outer court circle and exalted classes. He is credited with having wielded over the Czar an influence detrimental to his Majesty’s most liberal instincts. He is imbued with many of the retrograde conservative ideas, which distinguished the late Count Tolstoy. Whether the report that he will retire is true or not, it is quite unlikely that he will retain his post long.

According to a special dispatch from St. Petersburg, a conspiracy against the life of the Czarovitz has been discovered. For several days the police have been arresting nihilists. Among those arrested are several students.
