LONDON CORRESPONDENCE THOUGH the fear and the danger of war are not equal nov to what they were a few weeks ago, there is still some cause for the feeling of uneasiness which exists. The refusal of England to have any thing to do with the Congress unless the full text of the ratified treaty was submitted for discussion, and the objections taken by our Ambassador at Constantinople to the proposed embarkation of Russian troops at Buyukdere, serve to show how critical the situation continues to be. The imperfections of the treaty on many points Bhow how much remains for the European Congress to do before anything like a final aettlement of the long-vexed Eastern Question can be acoomplished.. Some surprise was felt at the length of time which the Russian and Turkish plenipotentiaries took in concocting the treaty but a careful perusal of the twenty- nine Articles of which it consists, makes it it manifest that its framers had imposed upon them a very difficult task. Indeed it may be questioned if ever any stataimen vere called uoon to exercise their brains in the framing of a trea'-y involving so many tick'.i&h points and conflicting interests. One of the best things in Parliament of late was the speech in which Earl Granville pourel contempt upon a motion brought forward by Lord Stratheden and Campbell, who is perpetually boring the House of Lords about matters con- nected with the Congress and the situation in the East, and who generally chooses the worst possible tima for making the observations in which he thinks fit to indulge. The refinement of the strain of irony that pervaded Lord Granville's brief but effective speech made it all the more incisive; and Lord Stratheden and Campbell must be remarkably impervious to the attacks of masterly ridicule if he did not wince under the sharp cuts he received. Perhaps if Lord Derby were endowed with a modicum of Lord Gran- ville's playful spirit, he would be troubled with fewer questions from the lips of his tormentors in the House of Lords. There is to be no review of volunteers on Easter Monday, though one of the reasons originally assigned for making that day a Bank Holiday was that the volunteer corps might be able. to attend their annual gathering^' It is a pity that it was found impossible to carry out the project, as there is a probability, from sundry iadioataons, that the gathering would have been a larger one than on any previous ocoasion. The sub-committee, whom the metropolitan volunteer commanding officers had appointed to make ar- rangements for holding a review on Easter Mon- day, met with a constant suooession of refusals and disappointments. The railway companies professed their inability to take any large number of troops to Brighton, Dover, Folke- stone, Margate, Portsmouth, or Aldershot in consequence of the superabundance of their Easter Monday traffic. Epsom Downs were then thought of, but again the railway companies had their nonpossumus; and the Grand Stand Association also declined to invite the volunteers. More ascommo- dating than other railway companies, the London and North-Western, the Great Northern, and the. Midland were prepared to renew the facilities previously afforded; but Lord Brownlow, in reply to an application, stated that circumstances pre- vented his inviting the volunteers to Tring this year; and the idea of Dunstable had also to be <#t aside, as it was found that the crops would be too far forward to adinit of manoeuvring without doing great damage. The fates therefore had clearly set their face against the metropolitan volunteer ooras having an outing this Eaater. It was recently resolved, at a publio meeting held at the Mansion Reuse, to promote the hold- ing of a great Agricultural Exhibition in London next year, under the auspices of the Royal Agricultural Society of England, and an influential committee was appointed to carry out the object. Since then a letter has appeared from the Lord Mayor stating that the committee have it in contemplation to take steps to eularge the scope of the Exhibition, and to give it an international character. The great difficulty at the outset appears to be the selection of a suitable site. At the Mansion House meeting it was considered desirable, if possible, to hold the Exhibition in Hyde-park; but the committee have already ascertained that it is impracticable to carry out this suggestion. In 1862, under the auspices of the same society, there was an International Agricultural Show held in Battersea-park but it was overshadowed by the Industrial Exhibition of the same year, and it turned out a failure. Battersea, besides, was more difficult of access thin it is now, and the tide of passenger traffia had then a decided tendency in the direction of Kensington. If a good site, easy of access, cannot be obtained, the project will require to h", abandoned. Remembering the failure of 1862 the committee may not care to think again about Battersea, though it can now be reached more readily than at that time. On what grounds the Duke of Cambridge and the First Commissioner of Works refused Hyde- park for the purpose has not been made public. So much, however, depends upon the choice of a proper site that this point should be settled first before subscriptions are solicited to defray the expense of the Exhibition, which is estimated, according to the Lord Mayor's statement, at not leMthanjB30,000. The Benchers have been censored, and very properly too, for sanctioning the removal from the Temple Gardens of the very venerable his- toric tree, which was supposed to have been the trysting place of Henry VIII. and Anne Bo!eyn. It has been suggested, moreover, that, as Shakes- peare in 14 Henry VI.* puts the scene as to origin of the quarrel between the Red Rose and the White in the Temple Gardens, it was probably near or under the shade of the destroyed tree thai Plantagenet plucked a white and Somerset a red rose. The tree was doomed to make room for what has been appropriately called u the vulgar continuation of Plowden-buildings," whioh form another encroaohment on gardens that ought to be preserved intact. Owing to the sensational character of the account of the affair which appeared in the Pall- mall Gazette, there has been a good deal of speculation about the deaths of Felicitas Squibbs and her companion Ellen Maddox-two young women who were found drowned in the River Lea, near Ware, which is a little market town twenty-one miles distant from London. The coroner is blamed for declining to allow any adjournment of the inquest, as if he wished to prevent an investigation which might have the effect of compromising some person of position in the neighbourhood who is said to have corresponded with one of the girls. The facts, however, that the bodies bore no marks of vio- lence, and that the Lea, owing to its depth and stillness, is a fatal river, reader it highly probable that the unfortuaate young women were acci- dentally drowned. A brother of Felioitas Squibbs, writing to the Times from Lower Norwood, has strongly condemned the conduct of the ooroner, and bast urged that if the metropolitan, instead of the IoMl, police were to take the matter in hand, the result of their labours migh r. bring about some startling revelations. Mr. Leopold Squibb?, if any suspicious circumstances have come under his knowledge, would have aot-d more widely and prudently if, instead of writing a letter on the subject, he had communicated privately with the local police or the metropo- litan detectives. j) q

On Sunday afternoon, about four o'clock, a yacht which was sailing on the River Thames, between Erith and Barking Creek, was seen to capsize in a sudden squall and go down before assistance could be rendered. The time corresponds with that at which the Eurydice capsized. Three or four persons were observed on deck, and she is supposed to have had several more on board. No one wis saved, and nothing has been rea covered except three hatches, a cabin top, and a plate box containing spoons, knives, and forks, marked ".a,N.G,R.M.d"G."

the Quota and was about to effect a junction with Sand ill i and the Gaekas somewhere in the valley of the Kei; he also reported that Ibeka would be the point of attack. Oolonel Glyn had a small column commanded by Captain TTp<thp»v ^24t,h-~ Raiment. consisting of about 450- -PuHifofS1 "aha-. 4 £ \U.. Europeans, in camp at the Quintana Moun- tain—a place of great strategic importance, as from it the various ridges wKipb r'uiriidtfoi along/'the Kei river can be patrolled, and it overlooks- the Ohichaba Valley, a stronghold of the Gaekaa and other disaffected tribes which have risen in the colony. Quintana is about twelve miles from Ibeka, and, hearing that the enemy were moving in this direction, Colonel Glyn reinforced this column on the 5&h of February by a detachment of Oarrington's Horse—a luott useful regiment of ir- J regular cavalry, raised by Lieu tenant.,Car ring few, of the 24th Regiment. This brought the strength of the column to about 200 cavalry. ^d 300 infantry, and two gups. The cavalry consisted of Frontier Police under Inspector: Holden, jight horse under Commander Oarrington while the infantry were coin posed of two companies 24th Regiment, under Captain Rainforth detachment of Naval Brigade under Lieu- tenant Hamilton, her Majesty's ship Active, with a I rocket-tube; and the guns were a 9 pounder) under Cochrane, of the Police Artillery Troop, and a 7- pounder, in charge of Capetown Volunteers; a few men of the RoyaJ Engineers, who had been working at the defences ef the camp; the whole under the command of Captain Upcber, with Captain Grenfell, aide-de-camp, as Staff. Officer. WAITING FOR THE ATTACK. On the evening of the 5th news came that Kreli was moving round into the Nyameni Valley, at the«fr>ot of the ridge where the Quintana camp lay. Here he was to be joined by Sandilli, and a force of Gaekas and eur camp was to be attacked by the combined forces on the evening of the next day. Spies also stated that Kreli had about 3000 men, and that Sandilli was to join him with about 2000 Gaekas, which information proved nearly correct. On the morning of the 6th, Fingo scouts brought in reports that the EaffirS iwfere trooping into the bosh at the. foot of our cwmp in large numbers. Captain Upcher rods out to recon- noitre, and saw below in:the valley hundreds of- men crossing the river and eoming into the bush. With the 9-pounder gnn we might now have done great execution but, as our great object was to get them to attack us, it was thought wiser not toshow in force, but simply to await the arrivaljof the enemy. On return to campprdera were given thatonthe approach of the enemy tents were to b^ struck and left„on the ground. The men were told off quietly to their various positions. The waggons were made into a laager-tbat is, were formed into a square; the cattle were driven close under the suns, and we iwaited and longed that Gneto, the greats witch-doctor, who wis known to be with Kreli, might find favourable omens either in the flight of a bird, the direction of. the wind, or some other equally frivolous excuse for attacking or not, by which the movements of a Kaffir army are frequently guided. FINGO SCOUTS. Fingo scouts were posted on a hill about a mile off, and we could see them on the) sky-line riding back- wards and forwards on their horses, searching care- fully the various kloofs running down into the river. Four, five* and six o'clock passed, and not a move. Darkness came on, and with it a report they they had passed our camp and had gone on to attack the Springs, a camp some ten miles off. An express was sent into Ibeka, to warn the head-quarters, and we I lay down in our clothes perfectly miserable at the though" of the enemy passing so near, and our never even having had a shot at them. Anasty fog came on at night, but as a Kaffir never attacks at night we were under no apprehension. The men, however, lay down I just as they were, in their great coats, and extra Fingo scouts were posted. ADVANCE OF THE EJMMNRS. 'f I At daylight next morning, about a quarter before five, Feldtman, the Fingo chief, came up to the tent of the officer commanding aad told him the Kaffirs were advancing. In five minutes every tent was down, all the hones saddled up, and men in their places; and shortly, from two sides of the camp, the south and west, we saw a dense mass of Kaffirs approaching. I The camp had been chosen by Captain Nixon, R.E., as a site for a small square fort, and had been com- menced, and was high endnghto afford excellent cover I for the men. A few shelter-trenches had been dug outside a day before the attack, and into these trenches the infantry were told off, and three sides of the fort were 141solined with men. The two guns were it aide at each angle, and the naval rocket-tube in. the centre. 4. DISPOSITION OF THE. TROOPS. The camp was about 1200 yards south of Quintana Mountain, on a rise, with open ground on all sides ¡ the only weak place a wooded kloof to the right. A strong body of Fingoes were sent to hold this kloof. A* company of the 24th, under Captain Rainforth, was sent out to skirmish on a hill, which rose about 400 yards from the camp, and which commanded the' aforesaid kloof. Eighty of Oarrington's Horse were placed in the dip between our camp and the next hill; police horses in waggon laager cattle in the rear of camp. The mist cleared, and, riding out towards the enemy with Commandant Oarrington, I could see the Kaffirs halted, mounted men riding up and down their ranks arranging the order of attack. There were about 2500 men on our front, and about 2000 on our left, as far as we could judge. SHELLING THE KAFEIBS. As we turned to rejoin the camp a rocket from the Naval Brigade, followtd by a shell from Coehrane's 9-pounder, whistled over our heads, and tore into the ranks of the Kaffirs, and we could see them stripping off their blankets and taking away the wounded men. They came on in a most determined manner; the 24th skirmishers opening fire as they got within range, re- tiring at the same time to bring them under the guns of the fort. Oarrington's men galloped, out, de- livered their fire, and retired. Still on they came, and when they got within 800 yards Captain Upcher opened fire from the fort. They had stood the shells and rockets well, calling out to us if a shot went over their heads. But when they got fairly under the fire of the breechloader, they stag- gered in opening out, leaving many on the ground tried to rally; came on most pluckily for a shut way; broke again rallied again for a minute, and then gave way, some rushing to the rear, but the greater num- ber making for the cover of the kloof, on the right of our position. •• J < t THE FINGOES LET LOOSE. The Fingoes bad been kept in hand with difficulty and now getting the order to advance they yelled out their war-cry and dashed into the kloof, rushing at the Kaffirs. A desperate fight ensued, in which the Kaffirs were worsted at all points and fled down the kloof. At the same time Oarrington's Horse galloped up the hill and charged the body which had Bed towards the rear, their commandant, fifty yards ahead of them, riding right in among the hundreds of flying Kaffirs. They did great execution. The enemy on the left had got closer owing to the strongest face of the square being towards the front. Some of them lay within about 350 yards of the in- trenchment. When they broke Feldtman's Fingoes were let loose at them, and chased them for miles, killing a great many. Firing now ceased from. the fort, but in the kloof the yells and heavy fire of the Fingoes still went on. Our men had. not tasted foed, and were trying-to get something to eat and drink, when on our right—we had as yet been free from Kaffirti-a dense bcdy was seen moving over the hill. The firing in the kloof was se hot that Captain Upcher took the Naval Brigade and part of the 24th and went out to assist in clearing it. ATTACK ON BANDILLL'S MEN. Captain Grenfell, with some police, Oarrington's Horse, and a portion of the 24th moved off to attack the Gaekas. This attack proved to be Sandilli's men, who had come late. The police were sent out to hold the front till the infantry could get up, and this they did most gallantly under command of Sub-Inspector Hatton till reinforced by Carrington's Horse when the Kaffirs were attacked and driven back. At one time the enemy were so close that a policeman was stabbed by an assegai. At this moment a number of Kaffirs came out of the kloof in our rear, se that for a short time we were between two fires. The men from the kloof were charged by Oar- rington and his horse, and driven back into the kloof, where they were disposed of by the Fingoes. Here Oarrington had two horses killed, two wounded, and his own shot in the jaw, one Fingo killed, and two men of the Light Horse wounded. Some of Sandilli's men were cut off here and killed in the open. One, a fine-looking man, having dis- charged his gun, and thrown all his assegais, finding all chance of escape tone, drew his blanket round him, and, with head erect and strut like a turkey-cock, marched straight up towards the Fingoes. and though three times wounded, walked on till brought down by a shot in the back, when he fell and died without a murmur. CLEARING THE KLOOF. Captain Upcher and Captain Grenfell now moved down on each side of the kloof with their men in skirmishing order—cavalry on three flanks and Fin- goes on the edge of the eover-gradually clearing it till arriving at the end, when the Kaffirs were seen streaming out in hundreds. A force that Oolonel Giyn had sent to reinforce us now arrived, under V.J\ ri'„ k hJ; .if- i A f y £ L-

ifelent, and Efissia refused r to do anything mpr«, England has now suggested that jErasatft Bhould declare formally that the communication of the treaty is equivalent to submitting it to the Congress, but Russia has not consented to make a declaration of the kind. For the undiplomatic mind it is difficult to understand why England should raise such difficulties, and why Russia should .so obstinately ^refuse to remove them, but the Russian diplomatists explain that under thi$trivial, formality lies an important matter of principle. If Russia, they say, made the declaration suggested, she would in some sort recognise the Congress as a tribunal. To the re- maik that it is vijiworthy of gij*,at nations to squabble about such trifles, they replv, "If it is ia trifle, why does England insist so strongly upon is and let it he understood that if not granted ^he will not,, attend' the Congress?' There ia some force in this argument; but, on the* other hand, it is impossible to regard the Congress as a tribunal, since Russia will not be bound by a majority any more than any other Power. Unfor- tunately, however, the idea that in some way Russia is in (Sanger of being arraigned and judged by Europe has taken possession of the public mind, and seems to exercise a certain influence even in official spheres. THB-ARMY OF OCCUPATION IN BULGARIA. A Rustchuk corn spondent says: Prince Dondoukoff Karsakoff, who has oeen appointed chief of the armv of occupation and Governor General of Bulgaria, started a few days ago for San Stefano. The army of occupation will consist of three army corps—those of Generals Rad^sky, Zotoffr «nd Prince Karsakoff— being the 4tb,t)th, and 13th. The rest of the infantry of the Russian troops will leave for Russia within the next few weeks-the infantry by sea to Odessa, and the cavalry by way of Roumania. Their destination, however, for the present, will not, I am told, be beyond Kieff, where they will remain in camp until all danger of farther hostilities Bhall have passed. POINTS AT ISSUE BETWEEN ENGLAND AND RUSSIA. The St. Petersburg correspondent of the Timu, under. dftte March 27tb, says j With regard to the Congress it is extremely difficult to utider^tand the exact point at issue between the Cabinets' ef &t. Peters- burg and London. Some say England wishes that the Russian^ Government should agree to accept. as binding the decision of a majority, while she herself refuses to submit to such an arrangement. Others explftin the position thus: England recognises that it is impossible to topconstitUte Ottoman-rule in Europe, but cannot quietly ^accept the military and -political gucsess wh^ch Ruseia hag achieved. There -remain for her, therefore; two Courses: either to declare war. for the purpose of diminishing Russian prestige, or, on tbe. other baitd, to accept the fait8 and to inflict on Russia some humiliation in the matter of form. She adopted this latter policy, it is argued, inf the Black Sea negotiations of 1871, when she insisted o0 Russia subscribing to the principle, that no powercan alter a treaty without ^he sanction of all 'tis ,/fehatofles, and' she nbw wishes to' obtain alm^Hhg analogous. Ia 1871 Russia mad# a con- cession in form in orderto obtain the substance, and she could do so because -there had been merely a dip. lomatic campaign, in which nothing more precious than ink was spilt; but now, when rivers of Russian ..been shed, the nation will not accept » humiliation even in form. An important concession was made in communicating the go.calltd preliminary treaty and in declaring that there are no secret clauses, and now it is England's turn to concede something. There can be no hope of an arrangement if it is intended that all tie con- cessions should be on one side. Such' is the reasoning of men. who have an im- portant influence on the course of events and who arg ^almost universally condemned for being toqreoncil iatory. The only hope of peace lies pe 0 in the Soagress-assembling as soon aa poeaibif.

This afternoon a deputation, consisting of the Greek Orthodox Metropolitan of Athens, the Maywrs of Athens and the Piraeus, the Governor ot the Greek National Bank, the Rector of the University, and several professors, presented an address bearing 1000 signatures, and representing j' i,a.rtleB> Mr- Wyndham, the British Oharg6 d Affaires, expressing gratitude to the British Government for its endeavours to obtain the admission of a Greek plenipotentiary to the Con- gress, and also to the English nation for the interest and sympathy it has displayed towards Greece, who depends upon England for an equitable solution of the Eastern Question. The Greek Ministry took energetic measures to pr, vent ary demonstration in front of the British Legation, fearing that the jealousy of the °v °W^a be aroused, and also anticipating th*t t be crowd might, avail itself of the opportunity to clamour against the Ministry. on. v THE QREEK INSURRECTION, oo J c°rrespondent of the 'times, dating March SZaa, says Hobart Puaba is carrying out his threat to form a cordon round Pelioa and reduce the in- surgents to submission. He has stationed one man- 2l"Wfu &t T,ri?ke«. two others in the Straits of Skiathos, and has himself moved further along the coast with two more. By his instructions the Turkish land forces also have been concentrated at Agia, in wticb the insurgents have been com- pelled to fall back to the mountains. Thus the villagers, cut off from the plain whence their food supplies were drawn, are in danger of dying from starvation, or, if the insurgents retreat to the heights, of being massacred or driven out to perish in the snow. j Government appeals to the Powers to 8e°f ™"?8port8 to remove the women, children, and aged and place them under its protection, and, i ■ 8 fused, will itself send ships—a step II.i ( ? mevitably bring on war. The Christian = addressed the Consuls stating that it Hian J"06 knowledge that the present Turkish c »,i is one not consistent with the usages of clVlhsed warf, They complain, also, that the ■ 'be fighting which occurred this week at Agia, Dutchered their prisoners. They further state that an Irish colonel, having been present at the battle, was an eye-witness of their brutality. THE RELATIONS BETWEEN ENGLAND AND n •, RUSSIA.

A letter in the Politische Correspondenz from Adriancple of the 10th inst. declares that on inquiry the details of the reported executions of Austrian sub- jects published by several Vienna papers, and which led to interpellations by Polish members in the Reich- sratb, turn out to be unfounded. Among other things, the letter sais it was related that the Russians arrested at Sonar dve doctors, four of them being Austrian sub- jecte.'ajid ttnt the latter after a short trial were hanged, while the fifth, being in possession of an English pass- port, was saved by the energetic intervention of the British Consul at Sofia. The fortunate survivor, a certain Dr. OZf-rwioski, was said to have witnessed the execution of his colleagues, which occurred, not in the dead of night or in the darkness of a prison, but openly, and-to the sound of drums and martial music. In order to verify these allegations, the newspaper correspondent, with another col league', first endeavoured, beth- at the War Office in Constantinople and at the Central Committee of the "■Croissant Rouge," to ascertain the names of the medical men last in Sofia, when it turned out that no Dr. Ozerwinski had ever been employed, said that the Dr. Gebhardt stated to hava oeen executed was actually in Constantinople, He was soon found out and personally questioned about the facts. Accord- ing to his statement, he and some other medical men -Drs. Angehni, Ballog, Waldman, Horvath, and Weidish, of Saarbruck—stayed for eight days, up to the entry of the Russians, at the house of the Austrian Vice-Consul Wal ihardt, and were treated by this gentleman in the most hospitable manner. The Russian commander, General Gourko, declared to the medical men that he did not look upon them as prisoners; that those who wished to follow their calling among the Russians would receive the same pay as had been secured to them by their con- tract with the Turks.; while those who did not wish to do so might return home, or go to Constantinople. Dr. Angelini remains tbrnre up to this day; Dr, Gebhardt himself remained for a month; Pink, Wissik, and Michailovsky intended to 'go, via Belgrade, to Vienna, while all the others resolved to return to Oondtan^inopl^ Fink and. -Wissik have actually arrived in Vienna, while Michail(voky is BApposed to have been murdered by Servians or Wallachians, whose cupidity he may have excited by his ■ incautious habit of openly counting his savings. The 'correspondent adds that, having spent some time in the various parts of the theatre of war in Europe, he has never been able to ascertain anything about the execution of Poles by the Russians, and hence he concludes it is clear that the charges brought against the Austrian Consular authorities of netJcnowiug how to protect the subjects confided to their care are totally unfounded.

Asteam-tug, the Spitfire, from London, after unload' mg a cargo of wheat at Sonning Mills, was proceeding towards Reading when the boiler burst, and the force of the explosion was so strong that it blew into the air the man at the wheel and a boy about 14 years of age, named Collier, the son of the owner, killing them both. The body of the former has not been recovered, and that of the lad was picked up on the towing-path 100 yards away from the boat. The engineer and his son were in the stoke-hole, but were not injured, and the vessel went ashore, enabling them to escape before it finally sank. The deceased man leaves a wife and three children.
