Favre (much affeoted) replied : "My object ia to put a top to ihe terrible BuÖerings of uiy country, for now that hope of relief from without is lot, Paris must Deeda seek peace. All wc ask is such considera! ion na a generous eneray might give without loss of advuutage or honor." Bismarck expressed a desiro to do all in bis power to sbow his respect ior the gufferiny;n and gallnntry of the French nation cousisteut with the siifgty, honor and intereets of unitcd Germany. He naid tbis had been from the first to the List tho object aud desire of the Emperor a:d bis mivitiers since the commoneement of this uuliappy war was forced upon thetn. Favre first demanded the terms already reponed. Bismarek replied - vIt is not my provinoe to refuse or accept terms, but I must say that the f resent proposal are such that I eannot mynelf approve, and I feel ooufident tbat my augUht master will rejeet theni. Ilowever, it is my duty to submit them to bia oonsideratioD. Favre was politely but strictly put nnder surveillance, and occupied au opartmeot over the Pólice Bureau.
