His reply is reported, substantially,as fol lows: 44 We received the blessings of Christianity from the Greek Empire; and this has establish, ed and maintained ever since, a link of connec tion, both moral and religious, between Russia and that Power....

TUB LIQUOll LAW. Perhaps we kbould have said AntKLiquor Lave, but no matter, the head of an article is very like the same pari of a great many bipeds, really a non-essential An old proverb runneth somewhat thus: -Kopo deferred maketh the heart sick," and the heart of many a man has sickened white waiting judicial decisions npon points involving; the constitutionality of the Prohibitory Liquor Law. But, in the end wo have a decision, and such a decision. Last Mon day Judge Douglass rendered his final decis ion in the cases which were reserved by him for the opinion of the Supreme Court. In deci ding the Collins case, upon which the Supremo Court was equally divided, he considers the law a nullity, and reverses the judgment below. In deciding thellawlcy case, he acknowledges the action of the higher Court, and renders judg ment against the defendant. Like the Supreme ' Court, Judge Douglass is equally divided, and the samo day decides both ways. This may be law, we are no lawyer; it m...
