(The report ot the late assassination
of Kieg© and the Royal Family at Ma
drid, isliatly contradicted; and because
we did not believe or republish the idle
stories on this subject, one of our city
editors stoned us on the highway.
The disturbances in Ireland had
nearly ceased.
It is computed that not less than looo
persons have perished in the late furi

Tne lafe pretended victory of the Greeks

In reply to some observations of the
London Morning Chronicle, the Courier
of the 16th ui April observes—
“The partition of Turkey, without the con
sent of England, is an idle dream; and with it,
a puerile absurdity. The Cmperor of Russia,
had he the inclination, which we firmlv believe
he has not, to aggrandize him-elfin that quar
ter, knows too well the real extent and nature of
his resources, to make the attempt in defiance
ot'his allies. He knows that it will prove the
fatal source of a general war throughout Eu
rope, and the results of such a war would be
more disastrous to him, than toanv other Pow
er. His own interests, therefore, are closely
connected with a pacific policy; but we should
do him injustice if we inferred that in maintain
ing such a policy he was actuated by no other
motive. \Ve believe, on the contrary, he is
sincerely desirous of maintaining that state of
things, to the support of which he is pledged
with his Allies; and that, should war finally
take place with Turkey, it will be begun, car
riedon and terminated, in strict accordance
■with those general principles which formed the
basis of the arrangements completed in the
Congress at Vienna.”
