The quote: "I had an uneasy fear that he might cut a poor figure there besides all those clever officer,s from tsar's court" means that they are afraid that their partner will embarass them in front of all of the elite company that would be at the court. This indicates feelings of insecurity on Raina's part and a feeling of shame in regard to her family's economic situation.

Here Raina is regretful. She feels that she laboured under the illusion that  Sergius, her soul's hero would come up with a piteous perfomance in the battle between the Bulgarians and the Serbians beefed up by Russian officers.
