Dr. Wolff, in a letter from Erzeroom, dated 17th January, says :long as that horrid fellow Abd-ool Samet Khan is at Bokhara, nothing will be of any use. Every Englishman's fate is sealed-he must die. The following persons have been murdered at Bokhara :-1. Lieut. Wyburd, of the Indian navy; 2. Lieut. Colonel Stoddart ; 3. Captain Conolly; 4. One whom they call Freshaw; 5. A German ; 6. Il Cavaliere Naselli ; 7. Five Englishmen, outside Ichaar-Joo; 8. A Turcoman, who came to Bokbara to attempt the escape of Colonel Stoddart; 9. Ephraim, a Jew, from Meshed, who was sent to Bokhara, to make inquiries about Captain Conolly; 10. A Turkish officer. I made the whole journey from Bokhara to Meshed on horseback, with a rupture got at Bokhara, and without a bandage; also from Meshed to Teheran, other 600 miles; and from Teheran to Tabris, 380 miles. At Tabris I was taken ill with a bilious fever, which detained me fifteen days. The Russian consul at Tabris made me a present of a tuckrawan (litter), which conveyed me to Awajick, 160 miles; but from this place to Erzeroom, the mountains covered with snow, and the horrid precipices, prevented the passage of a tuckrawan, and I was obliged to travel 300 miles, under continual agonies, and at night eaten up by lice and fleas. At Hassan Kaleh, great was my joy at finding a tuckrawan, belonging to the Pasha of Erzeroom, which was sent on through the kindness of our good, benevolent, excellent, kind-hearted, and dear Colonel Williams, whose equal is scarcely to be found in this world. At nine miles from Erzeroom, Colonel Williams came himself to meet me. I was in such a distressed state, that I was taken at once to a Turkish bath, and was supplied with fresh clothing, and I was obliged to use mercury five days before I could get rid of the troublesome parasites, and I was then so debilitated that I could not stand upon my legs.”
Dr. Wolff had arrived at Constantinople, as well as an ambassador from the Khan of Bokhara to the Queen of England; but the German Universal Gazette says, that the British ambassador had formally refused to grant any passport to the ambassador from the Khan of Bokhara for England, as the Queen would not receive him at her court.
The Earl of Ellenborough has ordered the making of a sword which he is about to present to Sir C. Napier, G.C.B., Governor of Scinde, as a testimony of the high respect in which he holds the character of that gallant officer. The blade, which is of the finest Damascus steel, is double-edged. The handle and hilt are of gold, wrought with devices and legends. The legends are thus“Edward, Earl of Ellenborough, to Major-General Sir C. J. Napier, Governor of Scinde."--"Meanee-Hydrabad.” The motto of the Major-General also appears in embossed characters, " Ready, aye ready." whole weapon resembles the swords of the Knights Templar. The sheath and belt, &c., are crimson, embroidered in gold.
