Tito author u substantially correct when L
he says the $8,000 is trying to be seized T
bjr the Children's Home, for if the Chil- J

not be necessary to telse it. But, again, e

disposition of tho same." Jn the firnt J

not belong to the people from whom it J
was derived, but to those for whoee bene- 1
fit it was given. When the people from
whom this money was derived gave it to G
the Sanitary Commission for a specific 11
purposo their right and title to it ceased [
forever. The money then became the *

Cotton Exchange and the New Orleans
Exchange, in favor of adopting the

read. A motion to substitute the term
American cotton for that of Orleans cotton
was rejected.

also agreed to recommend that when cotton
is sold on short payment it shull be

British Influence In Greece.
London, July 13.?The adjournment of
the Greek Chamber is believed to mean
that the King, with the aid of British influence,
has gained ascendancy over the
war party, and that for the present, at
least, the apprehensions of Greek participation
against Turkey will not be realised,
as the participation of Greece would
undoubtedly have been a further complication
of the Eastern situation. This result
will be welcomed by those who have
feared a failure of the attempt to localize
the war. On the other hand it is probable
that the friends of Kussia, especially
the British Liberals, will see in the attitude
of Grecce further, steps of.the British
Cabinet in the direction of antagonism
to Russia. They will argue
that as the Canaras Ministry
was formed purely for an emergency and
at the demand of those who desired antiTurkish
measures, the adjournment of
tue Chamber without action must have
been induced by a very forcible representation
on the part of England. It is
highly probable that Britiah influence
has been a strong suppo/t to the peace
policy of the King, but not necessarily in
the sense of hostility to Russia, and poB?ibly
without the knowledge of the Britiah
Ministers. The timo for Greek action
has hardly arrived, and as Greece looks
rather to England than Russia an her
natural protector, it inay well be said
that the strained and uncertain relations
