Mr. M.

The S luthampton engine arrived at two minutes to twelve, ttrfittf mintUrt cvmiH? /roes Orchard-street. It wa* then taken to Ea*t atreeL bat neither police nor firrmen knew i*Aere the fireplug spa*. At !a*t one wa* found at the corner of York-building*, and, the hoee being joined. It waa then dlaoovered there waa not aufficicnt length, and back to Orchard a treat the tireuian had to go to get more. You would fancy, perhaps, that now all waa ready ; hut not ao, for the fireman hail forgotten the branch, which being obtained, pumping at laat commenced at twenty-els minute* past twelve, fifty minutes after the firU alarm, ant', half-an honr after the arrinl of the engine ; but not more than a dozen etrokea had been given when the hote bmftt and pumping bad to ceas^ while another length waa procured ; a second time the hoee burst, arid again the engine a topped while another length waa attached ; in fact, the hoee altogether waa in a diagracrful state. The engine from the Ordnance Office arrived at a quarter past twelve, and in arms minHte* was plavln* on the fiainea! A more diagracefnl exhibi Ion of inelhciency aod • incompetency I never witne*ae,L No one appeared to be in command, and all giving some order or other, and, aa a climax to the ignorance aa Jo the whereabout* of the fire-plug*, the hre escape was never brought out, ao that had It been required time must have been loat while It waa fetched from the atatinn."

I have thought fit to a**emble you before the usual period of your meeting In order that yon might become acquainted with the effort* I have made to terminate the war now devaatating Kaatern Europe and Armenia, and that I might have the advice and aaaLitanca of my larliament in the preaent a tat* of (while affair*, louare aware that alter having unraeceaafully atriven to avert that war. I declared nir Intention to obeerve Je"t'*'ity In a oonteat which I lamented, bnt had f*iled to prevent, ao long aa the intereat* of my hjspire, aa defined by my Government, were not threatened. I express-d at the same time my aaraeet derire to avail myself of any opportunity which might preaent itaalf for promoting a peaceful aetUement of the queetiona at Isaue between the belligerent Power*.
rhe aucoeaae* obtained by the Russian arm* both in Europe and Asia convinced the Porte that it ihould endeavour to bring to a cloae hostilities which, were causing immense suffering* to ita subjects. The Government of the Sultan accordingly addressed to the neutral Power* partiee to ihe treaties relating to the Turkish Empire an •PP*\1 for their good office*.
It did not, however, appear to the majority of the Power* thus addresaed that they could usefully comply tha P tal**"*"* they communicated thi* opinion to The Porta then determined on making a ae)

The kmpemr expressed, in reply, his eameat daaira ... peace, and atated at the same time his opinion a* to the cour*e which *hould be pursued for ita attainment.
Upon thla subjectcommunicationahave taken place between the Government* of Russia and Turkey through my good office* ; and I earnestly trust that they may lead to a pacific solution of the point* at issue, and to a termination of the war. No effort* on my part will be wanting to promote that reault.
Hitherto, ao far aa the war haa proceeded, neither of the belligerenta haa infringed the condition* on which my neutrality is founded, and I willingly believe that botfi parties are desirous to respect them so far a* it may be in
