ON THE WEDDING-DAY.
The Most General Amnesty Ever Granted in Russia.
London, Nov. 26. A dispatch to the Times from St. Petersburg says that the members of the imperial family took dinner together. Otherwise there were no festivities to mark the wedding-day of the Czar.
The Chronicles St. Petersburg correspondent telegraphs: The absence of street decorations to-day causes much remark, as being without precedent. There are no illuminations to-night nor any signs of festivities.
The imperial manifesto will occupy a page of the Chronicle. It reduces the rates on lands rented by the land banks to farmers. It is a comprehensive document and breathes benevolence in every line. It grants the greatest amnesty accorded by Russian for half a century, except he liberation of the serfs.
A dispatch to the Standard from St. Petersburg says: To-night crowds remained in front of the Anitchkoff Palace singing the national hymn. The Czar and Czarina came to the balcony at intervals and were loudly cheered.
