TXSUTUUECTIOX OF CRETE.
Omer Pasha, fall of confidence in his
military skill, believed that he had but to
show himself, and the insurgents, awe
struck, would hasten to surrender, and
give up a hopeless contest; but events
proved his anticipations to be incorrect.
As soon as he left Canea, he was assailed
by repeated and unlooked-for attacks. All
the defiles were strongly fortified, and ho
vainly endeavored to dislodge tho Chris
tians who defended them. As soon as bis
back was turned, the country ho had
taken possession of was at onco re-taken
by his obstinate antagonists. His con
voys, when venturing to any distance from
the sea-shore, were intercepted, and his
means of communication with the forts
constantly cut off. Under these circum
stances, ho became filled with revenge
ful wrath, and, in traversing the dis
tricts of Betimo and Mylopotamo, he
destroyed and burned down everything he
met on his way. The richest province of
the Island was changed into a wilderness;
Lassithi shared the same fate. The
Turks no longer made any distinction be
tween the villages inhabited by insurgents
and those which submitted to their au
thority. All were burned down, and tho
Christians, withont exception, murdered
in the most disgraceful manner their ears
and heads being exposed in the public
squares of the cities ; the wounded merci
lessly beheaded, and whole families burned
olive in their own houses. M. Murray, oc
English naval officer, Mr. Dickson, H. B.
M.'s Consul, Mr. Tricoa, .French Consul,
I and several others, bear witness to the
Things came to such a climax that all
j the foreign agents, without exception,
( could no longer refrain from showing th.'ir
i indignation. On the 21st of July, the
i French Consul wrote a dispatch to the
I French Charge d'Affaires at Constantino
ple, which, after describing the barbarous
conduct of the bachi-bozouks, finished by
stating that "the Turks bad proceeded
from powerlessness to wrath, and from
wrath to extermination."
On the same day, Mr. Dickson sent to
Mr. Ellis, the English Charge d'Afiairesat
Constantinople, a sirailir dispatch, in
which he requested him to let him know
if, in case hostilities did not cease, foreign
ships could not be allowed to take away
from the Island the Christian families who
would like to leave it. In the following
week, the Consuls of England, France,
Russia, and Austria, horror-stricken at the
increasing cruelties, addressed to their re
spective Governments, dispatches worded
in identical terms, informing them that
" massacres of women and children were
daily taking place; that the proper au
thorities were unable to repress the insur
rection, or put an end to the atrocities ;
and that it wa3 absolutely necessary, on
the score of humanity, that the women
.and children should be taken away to
The statesmen of Great Britain have
always aimed at acting consistently in
all points of their foreign policy, and as the
maintenance of the integrity of the Otto
man Empire is one of the principles form
ing the basis of their policy in Oriental
affairs, the English Consul received by re
turn of mail a dispatch, in a postscript to
which it was stated " that there were no
reasons justifying English ships in taking
Cretans from their country to Greece."
Mr. Mnrrav. who had communicated his
wish to save some of the victims from the
i,:. , n t. ...... ..-j
let the matter stand, and informed that
nothing was to bo changed from his former
instructions. This is certainly a very log
ical course, but are there not circumstances
in which those who hold in their hands
the fate of their fellow creatures, may
think that a moment of compassion, or a
movement of sympathy, is still better
than all the skill of the world ?
Notwithstanding the attitude taken by
England, Russia and France sent instruc
tions to the commanders of their squad
rons in the Levant, by which they were
! authorized to take away from Crete the
women, cnildren and old people desirous
of escaping from the evils of the -ar.
When this decision was made known to
him, Fnad Pasha protested and fulminated, J
but after reflection, he declared that the
troops and ships under the command'of
Omer Pasha would not prevent by force
the embarkation of the fugitives. It was
the only means' left to Turkey to avoid a
more cruel humiliation. The Russian Em
bassador declared that if they attempted
to hinder the Russian ships from accom
plishing their mission of humanity, the
commanders had instructions not to mind
it, but to go on. Omer Pasha showed the
same discontent when he saw the Russian
and French vessels, lie wanted, as Prince
Gortschakof used to say, to suppress the
insurrection by suppressing the population.
and they had untimely interfered before he
tad done his task of destruction 1
One can easily imagine the rapture of
gratitude with which that disguised inter
vention was received. In several trips,
the French ships took away 5,000 people ;
the Bussian, 4,800; and Austrian and It
alian Ehips, a great number of families, so
that at the end of August, Mr. Ellis esti-
number of persons who
left the Island during that month at 13,000.
In the meanwhile, Omer Pasha, trans
ported with passion, and depressed with
shame, had returned to Canea. He was
fully conscious of the bad aspect of his
affairs. The insurgents, more sanguine
than ever, were in possession of the whole
Island, tthile his army wa3 reduced to half
its former number through tickness, and
the enemy's fire. The Pasha of Egypt
was recalling home what remained of hi
troops. A profound discouragement was
predominant in all ranks of tho army ; offi
cere and soldiers were equally tired of the
protracted war. Money was very scarce,
and the Pashas and Beys were the only
ones who received any salaries. Those
who had been most favored had not seen
any coin for more than eicht months!
With the few thousand men left him, and
with an empty treasury, Omer Pasha was
unable to attempt any new enterprise. Tho
capture of the Arlxtdi, which the Turkish
Government extolled as a victory, was of
no importance, for hardly had the bold
vessel been seized, than it was replaced by
the Enosis and the Crete.
In tho month of Juno, the representa
tives of France, Italy, Prussia, Bussia
and Austria communicated to the Porte
identical dispatches, received from their
Governments, by which "the Turkish
Government was requested to assemble
a Committee of Inquiry, composed of Ot
toman functionaries, accompanied by Eu
ropean delegates nominated by ths re
spective Embassadors; said Committee
to go to the spot and ascertain what were
the wants and desires of the Cretans, and
after the close of their investigations they
would be called upon to form a resolution."
Fuad Pasha answered in a, very ably
written dispatch, that " ho would not take
part in those inquiries before knowing
whither they would lead. If the Powers
were decided npon respecting the principle
of the integrity of the Ottoman Empire,
and if the hypothesis of an annexation of
Crete to Greece was discarded beforehand,
he declared himself ready to examine, in
the most conciliatory spirit, any other pro
posed scheme; but if they admitted the
possibility of an annexation, it was pre
ferable not to resort to tho plan of in
quiries at all."
The Sultan had mode np his mind cot
to abandon, unless obliged to do so by
some crushing- defeat, one of the most
beautiful provinces of his Empire a coun
try where there were 100,000 Mussulmans.
From his point of view, Fuad Pasha
was right. " There was no reason for re
monstrating any longer with the Porte,
which, in order to conceal, under an ap
parent deference to the desires of Europe,
its want of power, gave orders to the
Serdar Ekrem that he should not under
take another campaign. A general
nesty wa3 proclaimed, and six weeks were
allowed to the volunteers and insurgents'
to lejve tho Island. The Grand Vizier,
Aali Pasha, promised to go and see what
should be done. This was cot what the
European Cabinets desired, and they there
fore hastened to throw aside their respon
sibility, declaring to the Saltan that "as
he htd been regardless of their advice, he
would have to suffer the consequences of
his, acts, and that he could no longer
reckon on their moral support, under any
When Aali Pasha was in Crete, he
somewhat modified the old system of ad
ministration, but not in accordance with
the wants and wishes of the Cretans, who
are at the present time left alone to de
fend their own rights. Most of the vol
unteers, officers as well as soldiers, have
returned to Greece, cot excepting the eel
ebrated Coroneos, but the native captains,
disdaining tho promises made by Aali
Pasha, ore stitl standing on the defensive.
Aali has divided tho Island into depart
ments, and appointed officers to take charge
of them, who, when they went to assume
their authority, were received as enemies,
and obliged to resign their positions, re

Embassador of the Sublime Porte in Lon
don, and Aristarchi Bey, Minister-Besi-dent
in Berlin, have declined the honor.
"When, at the end of Febmary, 1868, the
Sultan recalled Aali Pasha, affairs were in
precisely the same condition as in Novem
ber, 1867, after the cruelties of Omer
Pasha. Christians and Mussulmans are
on the gut rive, and skirmishes take place
when the Turks go out of the forts in
which they are garrisoned. The Enosis
and Crete continue to bring the insurgents
provisions and European goods.
How long can this situation last! It is
difficult to tell. The energetic and absti
nent Greek race has but few wants, and
can bear for a long time the hardest priva
tions. On tha other hand, Turkey, with
its scanty finances, and tho threatening
attitude of some other parts of its fron
tiers, can not remain indefinitely in the
statu quo. For the last two years, the
Saltan has cot collected any imposts from
that rebellious Island, and it colts him
several millions per month. He has to
maintain there, at great expense, a large
number of troops and a blockading squad
roc. The question cow is, whether the
patriotic obstinacy of the Cretans or the
pride of the Ottoman Cabinet will bold
oat the longest. .
If no complication occurs on the north
ern limits of the Empire, by which the
Sultan may be forced to renounce Crete,
it is possible that the Cretans may submit
for a time, in the hope of seeing again
their wives and children. Greece will cot
be able to sustain, many months more, the
harden imposed npon her. From 20,000
to 30,000 refugees are supported by sub
scriptions raised by the Greeks from Liv
erpool to Calcutta, from Alexandria"' to
Odessa. However small tho allowance to
each exile may be, yet it is marvelous bow
that small Kingdom has borne for so many
months such a heavy charge 1
In the uncertain state of Europe, we
can not foresee the destiny in store for
this brave and unfortunate people, bat

work, we can not help quoting, as a con
cluding remark, the following words, bor

A new estimate of the sun's distance re
minds us that this important astronomical
element still remains unsatisfactorily de
termined. The discovery made, not many
years ago. that the accepted value of the
sun's distance was some 3,000.000 miles
too great, was reluctantly admitted by as
tronomers, It was easy, indeed, to show
that they might justly be proud of having
determined the sun's distance even within
this apparently enormous range of error.
Uut none the less, it was unpleasant to
have to admit that they had largely over
valued the accurancy of their calculations
or rather of the observations on hich
their estimates bad been founded.
That astronomers should havo been in
error on this point, and vet that astronomy
should bo spoken of as the most exact of
tee sciences, may seem perplexiogao tnoso
who ore not familiar with the tree quality
of that exactness which is sought after by
astronomers. It resembles in a sort tho
accuracy of tha horologisfs art. We
kuoiv this is in no way dependent on the
scale in which clocks or watches may be
constructed. The great bands which sweep
over the dial plate of a cathedral clock, and
the delicate hands of a pocket chronome
ter, are equally well adapted to indicate
tho flight of time. And, in like manner,
the scale of the solar system might have
been many times less or many times great
er than it actually is, and yet the planets
would cave swept on their stately courses
precisely as at present.
it mar not be amis3 to point out bnelly
what is the nature of tho problem astrono
mers have sought to solve :
Imagine a prisoner confined in a room
which has a single circular window, only
six inches in diameter. Suppose him to
be provided with accurate instruments,
and conceive that directly in front of tho
window, and somewhat more than a mils
off, there is an object, say a steeple
whose distance he wishes to determine.
Then a moments consideration will show
that whatever the accuracy of his instru
ments, and whatever his skill in nsing them,
ei, mu uis oase line ot oniy six; incues,
ne could cot expect an error oi less than
at least calf a mile in bis result.
The position of such a prisoner corres
ponds closely with that of the inhabitants
of the earth, limited to their little globe,
less man a.uuu miles in U anieter, as. a
base from which to estimate the distances
of the sun, upwards of 90,000,000 miles
nut m some respects our prisoner is
better situated than the inhabitants of the
earth. A single observer, using, in one
place, a single set of instruments, is. not
troubled with the numerous important
considerations which affect the valuo of
the work done in two observations situated
on opposite sides of the earth. Different
observers each with his peculiar, prehaps
variable, "personal equation" must be
employed; or else a'single observer, hav
ing completed a series of observations in
one hemisphere, must commence a new
series (when, perhaps important changes
may have occurred iu his observing quali
ties) in another.
iN ow, to return for a moment to our
prisoner.. If there were objects interven
ing between him and the steeple, and if he
bad by any means obtained certain knowl
edge of the relative distances of these ob
jects, it is clear his power over his problem
would be greatly increased. .Let the read
er look from opposite sides of the window
at objects ncequally distant, but nearly in
the same direction, and he will immediately
see the sort of uso our prisoner might
make of the knowledge spoken of. llo
may not indeed, know the exact mathe
matical principles involved in the problem,
nor would this be the place to explain
thera, bnt be will sec that tnere is some
thing tangible and appreciable in tho new
form of observation.
Now, the "observer on earth has, at long
intervals an opportunity of grasping at
some such aids as we have conceived avail
able to our prisoner. Venus and Mercury
occasionally pass between us and the sun,
ana by observing their transits carefully
from different parts of the earth, astrono
mers have been able to gain jaster concep
tions of the sun's distance than they conid
otherwise have obtained. All the difficul
ties, however, which we have mentioned
above are involved in the solution of this
lonn, also the solution of the problem.
Tet, with no other aid, and with the
comparatively inefficient instruments of
the last centnry, astronomers managed to
determine the suns distance with wbat
may fairly be termed wonderful accuracy
certainly within one-t.nrtieiu part oi tne
true distance. This is as if our prisoner
should determine the .steeples distance
within 50 or 60 yards.
But astronomers of the present day,
using a variety of delicate methods, into
whose, nature we need not here enter,
have arrived at mora trustworthy results.
It is hoped that during the transits of
Venus in 1SU and 18S2 these results
may be improved upon. Yet even now,
we may note as a great achievement of
modern science the following series of
values, differing little (proportionately)
among themselves, though well separated
from the old determination 95,274.000
miles: The German astronomer Hansen,
making use of a peculiarity in the' moon's
motion as guide was led to the value 91.
700,000 niles ; Stone of the Greenwich Ob
servatory, was led by the same means
(only the peculiarity was estimated by
other instruments,) to the value 92.400,
000 miles. Winnecke and Stone from olt-
sprvations of Mars, obtained, respectively.
tne values 91-30IMNXI miles and 91,300,000
miles. Estimates founded on a compari
son of the velocity of light as determined
by the experiments of Fizeau and Fou
canlt with the astronomical determination.
give a value of 91,500.000 miles. A meth
od employed by Levemer, and founded on
a peculiarity of the .earth's motion, gives
yi.tXXJ.UUU miles. And, lastly, tha new
estimate obtained by Simon Xewcombo
III. b.) rounded on observations oi Mars
in IS62, make the sun's distance 92,400,
000 miles. The mean of these values is
91,771,000 miles, or nearly 630,000 miles
less than the greatest estimate.
t rom the above results, it wiu be seen
that astronomers over estimated the accur
acy of their calculations, when they ex
pressed the sun's disUcce asi if it were
known correctly within a thousand miles.
But we may justly wonder at the results-
recorded. Returning to our illustrative
prisoner, it is as if his estimates of the
steeple's distance differed from their mean
by less than 14 yards.

NoBTn Pole. Her Maiesto's Yacht Victoria
and Albert, Captain Ills fcertne. lllgtmeaa tne
Prince of Lciuingen, has recently returned
to Portsmouth from a cruise beyond the Arc
tic Circle, tbe purpose of which still remains
One of the official mysterlrs. This magnifi
cent vessel is, wc believe, tbe first of her size
and costilness which has made tbe attempt to
penetrate the fiords and Intricate channels of
the Norwegian coast, and It Is to be presumed
that the object of tbe vojage was commen
surate In importance wile the risk Incurred.
Tbe ship left Portsmouth on tbe 1st of Jane,
and arrived at Bergen on tbe 4th. She re
mained there three days, wblle tbe paddle
steamer Vivid, which was detached for duty
as tender to the yacbt during tbe cruise, con
veyed tbe Prince of LclDingen and others of
the officers np tbe HardaDger fiord. On re
suming her vojage tbe yacbt proceeded to
Drondhjem, calling en route at Grandsuode
ana Jioiae. uunng mis pan ot tne voyage,
the ship kept well fn-shore, steaming sloftly
up tbe fiords and among the Innumerable
islands that bound tbe Scandinavian coast,
and sbc sometimes found herself la rather
critical positions. In some places tbe chan
nels were so narrow, with rocks towering
some hundreds of feet above on either side,
tbnt it seemed to be almost Impossible for a
ship to pass, but the yacht answered to her
bclm admirably, and she was fortunate
enongh to have skillful pilots on board.
Under these circumstances, she made her
way through tbe intricacies of navigation
without a casualty, and without appearing
any tbe worse for ber voyage. To a traveler
unaccustomed to the northern latitudes, tbe
physical phenomena were most marked and

voyagers cad tbe advantage If It Is an ad
vantage of perpetual daylight, and the.
mountains between ttat point and Hammer
fest were capped with snow. The thermo
meter was down to tbe freeaing point, while
tbe sun, an early riser in these regions, was
well up above the horizon at midnight. Tbe
yacht steamed slowly nurtbward to Ilammcr
lest, generally anchoring for tbe nigbt, and
afterwards rounded tbe North Cape, which
Is over 70 north of tbe Equator, and, there
fore, some 1 wlthlatbe Arctic Circle. Tbe
sbip remained two days at tbl point to coal
for the homeward voyage, and then shaped
her coarse southward, calling at Drondhjem
and tbe Shetland Islands on her way, and sr-"
riving at PorUmouth after an absence of 28
days. The only surmise we have beard ex
pressed as to the object of tbe trip is that It
was undertaken as a sort of trial cruise, with
tbe view of its being repeated on some fu
ture occasion for tbe benefit of tbe Boyal
family. Tbe'only visitor of distinction on
board, however, on this occasion, was tbe
Princess of Leinlngen. Tbe weather Wis
