MR PARNELL v. LORD SALISBURY.
TO THE EDITOB, Sir,—The ' Dundee Advertiser' has utilised the point in the leader of the ' Dublin Freeman* of a recent date, pinning Lord Salisbury to a lie. The 'Advertiser' remarks that his denial of the authority of the secret agreement with Russia eleven years ago was as much an attempt to deceive the country as Mr Farnell's statement about sesret societies. Lord Salisbury informed a correspondent that he never gave any such denial; but the 'Advertiser.' is one too
many for His Lordship, The secret agreo-. ment referred to was signed on the 30th May, 1878, and, quoting day and date, it shows that in Blue Book thirty-nine, of 1878, Lord Salisbury on the Bth June, wroto to the Berlin Ambassidor, under the pretence of instructing him to "earnestly" press for the very things he had signed away—an act for publication and deception of the country.—l am, etc. Veritas, Dunedin, June 29.
