The almost complete suppression of the Cretan rebellion is once

more reported this week, and on official authority. The brave islanders who have resisted the Turkish hordes with such tenacity are yielding in every direction, and but for assistance from the Greeks of the mainland, who have shown as much sympathy with Crete as the Piedmontese with Lombardy and Venice, " order" would once more " reign," till death became once more preferable to Mussulman domination. We trust Europe, though it seems to have abandoned the Cretans, will interfere to prevent the atrocities which accompany a military occupation by Mohammedan troops. The '° honour" of the Porte being safe, Crete may be made a separate State on the Egyptian plan, but with a Christian Viceroy.
