1869-03-26 RUSSIAN SOLDIERS AND SAILORS

London Times, 26 March 1869, p. 7: RUSSIAN SOLDIERS AND SAILORS.

            The Gazette de St. Pétersbourg states that a sanguinary conflict has just occurred at Cronstadt between the seamen and soldiers in that town. Nearly 4,000 men took part in the fight, which resulted in six of the combatants being killed and many others wounded. Several officers were ill-used in attempting to put a stop to the disorder.
