The Sultan's idea of asking Lord Charle3 Bereßford to go to Constantinople to undertake the duties of Oommander-in-Ohief of the Turkish fleet is not at all a bad oue. The Ottoman Government knew the advantage of an English offioer m high oommand long before they persuaded tho late Hobart Paoha to Join them. They have not, however, been ) able to get a suitable Buooeaaor Binoa Hobart ) Paoha s death, and now it is suggested Lord Charles Bereaford is to be asked. Lord Charles would never think of aooepting the poet. Hia prospeots at home are far too good. In the event of a great naval struggle he would aura to be to the front ; and even aa it 18, suppose no Wat oomes m the oourse of the next few years— rather a wild- supposition, one would think, after Lord Salisbury's speeoh of the othor nighthe will have far better prospeots, and, indeed a tar better position, than even aa Oom-mander-in-Ohief of the Turkish Fleet.

It may be remembered that m 1878 Turnbuli waa oonvioted of , the murder of Martin Hagan, and aentenoed 1 to be hanged. He was, however, respited at , tbe last moment, hia aeutenoe being commuted 1 to one ofjenal servitude for Jife. Hia friends labored aasiduously to establish his undoubted innooenoe, and finally auooeeded, though only after the unfortunate man had spent 14iyeaiB of his exiatenoe m prison. Hia friendd are i naturally indignant at the idea of an innooent r man being act at liberty with a tioket-of-leave, , and they have determined, by means of a petition to the Home-Seoretary, to agitate for a full pardon,"
