The Paris Correspondent of the Times says that a new

method of settling the concessions to be made to Greece is about to be adopted. The Turks will do nothing, and the Greeks can do nothing, and the French Government, therefore, sug- gested that an International Commission should be appointed to settle the new delimitations. Lord Salisbury was ready to assent, but was inclined to transfer the business to a moving International Commission, which should proceed to the- spot and fix the boundary, without any more delay or jugglery; and M. de Freycinet, after consideration, is inclined to accept this plan, which is the one mentioned by Lord Beaconsfield in his speech on the Address. The plan is a good one, if the two Powers are resolved that the Commission shall be absolute; but if they are not, Turkey will first delay its assent, then hint to a mob to threaten the Commissioners, and then delay the ratification of any cession made. The Pashas will feel sure in that course of Russian ap- proval, and of a, secret sympathy in the British Cabinet, which has no wish that Greece should have anything she can be re- strained from getting. The Greeks show a great deal too much patience. They have only to send their King away, as obviously

-unable to secure their national ends, and elect a Hohenzollern, and all Europe will wake up to the necessity of securing them -" those national boundaries which develope feelings of modera- tion and responsibility."
