The Morning Chronicle observes, in allusion to the state of

affairs in Greece, (adding as makeweight for John Bull, the recognized practice of torture, and encouragement of the slave-trade)—

" The whole system demands that prompt and energetic measures should be taken to check the growth of an evil which cannot endure much longer without complicating still more the affairs of the Levant. We hope to see the subject brought at an early period under the consideration of the Briti.11 Parliament ; which has been voting away money with apparently no other result, as far as King Otho is concerned, than to prepare the way for a second revolution. To this the discontent of the Greeks will come, if the cause of that discontent be not speedily removed."
