Port Arthur* 3rd Jan.: ��� Four  abreast, svith tattered cle tiling, in  sharp 'pontaast to t-he no'b'by Japanese -guard., the Russian forces  taaarched. out of Port Arthur, crossing the glacis to the Japanese camp.  Maay'of the ��� men were .ill aud  ���w-alkedl ' ssii.th ,diffic.utlty.. /All the  military-training -of the .men svas  gone. All svere emacialed to  ���skeletons svith no spirit left.  In half an hour all had sat dosvn  tto a "full mess, "the "first in in any  weeks, 'including svdn-es. - Soldiers  ���tomcheiS glasses before -dr-inking.

The authorities .ao  cept th-e fact svit-h clogged sfcub-  bornnes-s and proclaim that-the end  ofthe svar.is a long way off.

Stoessel .and -officers, but 1x0 man tion was .made of  the tioops dti ithe negotiations.  From the actis-itydisplaj-ed at the  various Japanese prisons, it i-s evJ-  dently the intention to 'transport  the Port Arthur prisoners immediately from the wrecked port.  1 The plenipotentiaries of both  posvers 'have concluded negotiations. The Russian commissioners accepted svithout reserve the  conditions suggested, and consented to capitulation.

Botih at the 'War .Office1  and sthe A'dinrralby, all talk 'of  the possibility of peace ;at such a|  time is meet svith an .expression of  indignation.  Jn diplomatic circles it is regarded as certain that Japan asvaited  '.this -moment to submit proposals  of peace, and that she intends to do  so through the United States.  The   Northern!
