OFFICIAL CORRESPONDENCE. Further omcial correspondence has been published respecting the affairs of Turkey. On the 8th of last June Count Schouvaloff had a confidential conversa- tion with Loed Derby, -in which he explained on what terms Russia would then make peace. Among the principal stipulations ware: Bulgaria north of the Balkans to be made an autonomous vassal province, under thegunranteeef Europe; Buigannsonthof the Balkans and the other Christian provinces of Turkey to have a regular administration guaranteed to them by the Powers; the portion of Bessarabia ceded to Boumania in 1860 to be restored; Batoum and the adjacent territory to be eeded to Rassia.

If the former were to consent to them it would most probably cosi him hie throne, if not his life. Some weeks later, how- ever; Mr. Layard was instructed to sound the Sultan on the subject of peace. This was oil the 28th of last July. 011 the 2nd of August Mr. Layard replied that he had secretly ascertained the Sultan's views. His Majesty could not listen to "any conditions of peace."
