The following correspondence has been seat to us f or publica tion : " Royal institute of British Architects, 9, Conduit - street, Hanover - eqnare, London, W., Dec. 19, 1882. Dear Mr. Hebb, I am directed to inform you that the CouLcil yesterday toek Into consideration your hint of the 4th inst.. respecting the desirability of expressing the gratification of the Royal Institute ox British Architects at the steps just taken by the Government to inquire into the death of Mr. C. OOgle, an Associate, who was murdered a few years ago at Yolo, in Thesa!y. Mr. Ode. as von doubtless know, was then acting, not as a representative of tbe institute, but aa a correspondent of liu Ttna, and the Council, therefore, consider that they are not in any way eaued upon to interiere or to express any opinion upon what the uovernment may deem It right to do in such a matter. I am, yours very truly, illuh H. White, Secretary. John Hebb Esq., Metropolitan Board of Works, Spring - gardens, S.W." " Metropolitan Board of Works, Superintending Architect's Department, Spring - gardens, S.W., Dec. 22. Dear Mr. White, I beg to thank, you lor your letter or tne ivux inn., communicating the decision of the Council of the Institute with resard to the reopening of the inquiry into the circumstances of the death of Mr. C. Chaloner Ogle. While acknowledging the courtesy of the Council in - taking the matter into consi deration, l cannot relrain Irom expre.ging my regret that the Council should apparently feel so little interest in the fate, and so little regard for. the reputation, ef a de ceased member of the Institute. Mr. Ogle was not only killed bv the Turks, but his memory wis most cruelly slandered by the Turkish Government, who alleged, in justification of his murder, that he was killed with arms in his hand,fighting on the sideof tbe insurgents in Thessaly, at tbe time he was assumed to be diseharrinr th ' duties of a special correspondent for a newspaper. This scandalous charge was denied and amply disproved at the time of his death, but will no doubt be reiterated. The Council point out that Mr. Ogle met with his death while acting as corre. - pondent of The Tint newspaper, and not as a representative of the Institute ; and that, under these circumstances, they de not feel disposed to express an opinion on the subject. Mr. Ogle was an architect and a member of the Institute. This, I should have thought, was a sufficient title to the sympathy of the representative body of tbe profession, and I am at a loss te understand the reluctance of the Council to join in expressing the satisfaction which every member of the Institute mast feel st the resumption of an inouiry whieh, in the interests interests of truth and justice, should never have been post - Smed. I am, dear Mr. White, yours faithfully, Join iBi. William H. White.Esq., Secretsry Royal Institute ol British Architects." Th Nicaragua Casax Project.
