THE NEWS BY THE MAIL. THE EASTERN QUESTION. LONDON, January 1. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 25 February 1869
,THE :NEWS 'BY THE . MAILiL.: (Nonm the London correspondtent of the Jfelbourne Argus.J . THE EASTERN QUESTION. LoinDOw, January 1. A nurmun between Greece and Turkey has this month brought the eastern question to a crisis. Diplomatists are busy arranging the preliminaries of a conference between the great powers, by which open war may be prevented; but in the present state of mutual distrust the issue cannot be pre dicted with any certainty. The inflammable materials stored on the Turkish frontiers are enough to set the continent in a blaze. France and Russia have both been charged with' secret intrigues; aid unless the dis cussion be strictly limited to the immediate causes of the present dispute, this confer ence;'like others before it, may 'but prepare the way for a European war. The Cretan insurrection has been sustained only by Greek sympathy. The prolonged struggle by which the islanders sought to recover their independence was 'not without heroic features; but for months pas...

Ix the Assembly, Mr. Roberts moved the adjournment of the House, in order to call the attention of the government to the dilapidated state of the Berrima court-house.

Second, that there is nothing to show that any precautions were taken by the government to preserve his Royal Highness's life.- Third. that there is no...

TIURSDAY, FEBRUARY 25th, 1869. Ri. na In a' i-anitary point of view considered as a matter of taste, 'or with greater justice viewed. in both aspects, tree-planting, as. already carried out- in many Australian towns and favourably contemplated in others, cannot be' too zealously recommended for general adop tion. Those of us to whom Australia is the land of our adoption enly, and who have any knowledge of the cities o f' the mother country, miss greatly the parks;, avenues, and arbours. which are to be found in every considerable European town and city. We miss-them the' more because here the peculiarities of climate fender their presence a greater desidera am. Is there any reason,; then, why the' town 'populations of Australia generally should not provide 'for their own tastesin this as inall other respects ?- - None that we kpow of; but rather' there. is. every facility for the-developement of the idea.
