From Europe. Wc have Lon
don dates to the 22d April; but
up to that period it was not cer
tainly known what arrangements
had been made for the re-organization
of the British adminstra
tion. Mr. Canning's appointment
as Premier was hailed with en
thusiasm in Ireland; but in Eng
land, the London Globe says, "a
favorite bet in the high Tory cir
cles is, on Mr. Canning's not con
tinuing in ofiice two months."
Doubtless the nobility and high
church party united, will consti
tute a powerful opposition; but
those who wager as abovemen
tioncd, must, we presume calcu
late largely on the weakness and
instability of the mass of the na
tion, or think the King very fickle
in his choice of a Minister.
In France, a victory no less im
portant to liberal principles had
been achieved. The jirojct tic
lot for the re-establishment of the
censorship of the Press, after re
ceiving the sanction of the Cham
ber of Deputies, had been formal
ly withdrawn from the House of
Peers, and of course abandoned
by the Ministry.

Greece. Extract of a letter da

longer be a doubt of it from the

have succeeded in chasing Red
schid Pacha from the town. All
the letters announce to us the
complete victory which the defen

over the Turks. Colleti and Gen.
Caratasso had already disembark

of Macedonians, Thracians, andj
Thessalians, confided to the card
of D. Euian and Gregory Sculzo,j
were in advance at the camp ofl

past month, Mavromichaeli arriv-!

the commencement of the Greek
Revolution, has made so many
great sacrifices for the liberty of
his country, lie brought with
him 1500 Mainotes. The num
ber of the Greeks, at this time as
sembled in Attica amounted to
more than 6000 men, and Kioutahi
Seraskier of the Turkish army,
had nearly 8000 soldiers; but there
was a remarkable difference in
Russia. Letters from Berlin,
of 9th April say, that the last ac
counts from St. Petersburg leave
no doubt of the determination of
the Russian cabinet to come to a
decisive arrangement with the
Porte, relative to the affairs of
Greece. They affirm, also, that
the Russian Minister of War has
sent eventual orders to the Gene
ral commanding the divisions sta
tioned from Choczyen on the
Pruth, to Czcrskasy on the Dnie
per. It is thought that, to put an
end to the tergiversations of the
Divan, this mass of troops, which
amounts to above 100,000 men,
will be concentrated on the Pruth.
Such a measure cannot fail to
produce a great sensation at Con

France. Paris extracts to the

information, that, in the House of

the law on the Press were so radi
