THE PORTE TRYING TO STOP THE BOMBARDMENT, On Monday Lord Dufiprin communicated to the Porte a verbal Note stating that in consequence of the arming of the forts at Alexandria by the Egyptian authorities, Admiral Seymour intended to announce that morning that unless the forts were temporarily surrendered for the purpose of being disarmed, he would open fire within 24 hours. The Porte, in its reply, stated that according to information from Dervisch Pacha and the Khedive, no resistance would be offered in the event of. a bombardment. It hoped, therefore, that orders would be given to Admiral Seymour to abstain from all acts of hostility. On Tuesday the Porte, having learned that Admiral Seymour bad opened fire in the morning on the Alexandria forts, sent a telegram to the Ottoman Ambassador in London (Musurus Pasha), instructing him without a moment's loss of time to make pressing representations to Lord Granville to issue orders to cease firing immediately, in order to avert still greater misfortunes, H I hold it superfluous," says Said Pasha (the Turkish Minister), "to dwell on the extreme gravity of this fact; and I confine myself, considering the urgency of the case, to requesting that you will, without a moment's delay, make pressing representa- tions to Lord Granville, with the view of procuring immediately an order stopping the bombardment,"
