SATDRDAY, JULY 13. 1878.
1103b cold-hearted philosopher* who delight in ic contentemplation of human folly and wicked-:ss must have been gratified to their heart's intent by the spectacle the East of Europe has presented during the last three years. First, we had the revolt in the Herzegovina. Tbe little smouldering flame that was so carefully fed *ud fanned, and nourished into a mighty conflagration by the Christian Princes whose" Ministers drew up the memorandum of Berlin. Princes whose zeal for good and just government is patent to every student of the history of these States. Tbe lierzegovinans—those useful tools of the cunning workmen who planned Turkey'i ruin—have now, as the reward of three years' miserable anarchy, the privilege—which Italy loved so well—of becoming Austrian subjects. Doubtles* this is an improvement on the past— especially the recent past—but why did Austfia allow such mi*ery to happen ? Why did not her battalions push southwards and eastwards three years ago ? Then we had the Servian raid, which they thought was to convert all Turkey into one vast Servia, and give them the rule ol the Sultan's heritage. The result to them being *omo petty slip of territory—the almost absolute certainty that they will never get any more — and a very strong probability that they will share, with Bosnia, the honour of becoming a province of the Austrian Empire. Russia and the Turkish government have, however, afforded the most sublime instances of human perversity. Russia has spent the blood of her boldest sons like water—ha* loaded herself with debt—*nd for wh*t P To erect, we hope, a more effectual barrier between herself and the Mediterranean than decaying Turkey afforded. As for supposing that she has the satisfaction (if she desired it) of having lessened the sum of human misery, that is absurd. The war ha* caused more wretchedness in a year than Turkiah rule would have inflicted In a century. ^Turkey — that » to *ay the governing diss (a different thing to either the country or the people) has not been behindhand in the competition of folly. Had the term* offered by the Congress of Constantinople been accepted, the war that has sealed the ruin of the Ottoman power might have been averted, and that ruin, perhaps, avoided. Had the golden chances the incompetence of the Russian Gene-rala been availed of last summer, victory might have given their rule a new leaae of life. Treachery—or something very like it—sealed their mm, and Turkey exist* only as the •hadow of a power in Europe.

Foa some weeks past there have been rumours circulating that her Majesty's Government would not confine their sction in the Turkish embroglio to endorsing the modified treaty of San Stefano. Hints and surmises have abounded, but all doubt was set *t rest ou Monday by the publication of a treaty between England and the Porte, which gives England very ample powers snd opportunities for improving the administration of the Turkish Empire—what is left of it. In return fur accepting our advice, we guarantee the integrity ol tne Turkish Empire in Asia. The responsibility is a serious one, but we do not see that any other course was open to the government. They had to choosf between ruling Turkey themselves, or seeing Ruaaia settling down upon it, ami establiahing herself half way between ourselves *nd our possessions in the East.
We believe the country will heartily endorse the policy Lord Beaconsfield has wisely followed. The majority of Englishmen do not dread work or trouble, and have no sort of sympathy with the mean, shabby, shuffling theory of the national life Messrs. Gladstone and Lowe have so often set before us. Had their views prevailed in the past, Britain would still be a miserable chaos of petty quarreling states. For tbe arguments they will use against the protectorate ol Ariia and the occupation of Cyprus would have had equal cogency and value against the union with Scotland, or the conquest of Wales and
Oom position in Cyprus is apparently anomalous, but it must be remembered that although Cyprus remains—at present—Turkish in name, it at once becomes Englisb^in (act. Peace and decent government being guaranteed by our occupation, we may expect to see Englishmen flocking to this beautiful island. English capital developing its resources, will soon restore something ol the prosperity that has been decaying now for centuries. No doubt, as a lanatarium, Cyprus will soon bold a high pjaee in Engliih estimation, and as a place of health resort during the winter months be a dangerou* rival to the South of France, Madeira, and Egypt. It offers all the attractions of novelty—a remarkable history— and * climate *o charming, that, as our readers will remember, the ancients fabled Cyprus to hi tbe chosen home of theGoddew of Pleasure. We believe Cyprus has * great future before it, by which England and itself will be alike advan-
la connection with the question ol the acquisition of Cyprus, we beg to call our readers' attention to the following thoughtful article from The Colonies and India, a journal to whose merits we have called attention elsewhere. The article, we should add, appeared in their issue of July 6.
A very important question, incidentally raised by General Sir F. J. Goldsand s paper on Railway Communication wito India, and closely bound up with our relaiioas with our Eastern dependenciee, ia involved in the future of Cyprus. So far aa our present knowledge goes, the Government of this country has bound itself to the defence, if not to the internal administration of Asiatic Turkey; and, in the arrangements that must be made for performing this duty, the aoquiaitioa of the island of Cyprue may probably become a subject of negotiation. the extreme eastern end of the Mediterranean, it woold form an invaluable link in th* chain of noeeeseioo* guarding our route to Indl% The :*#en Ad«n and Malta, with th* Snea Canal

The procession being formed, tbe members of the Press followed behind, as has been their custom, and took their seata in the laat carriage; but to their utter astonishment, and in the midst of some 300 people, were ordered by Sergeant South tola in, to eay the least of it. a moat unui manner. Not wishing to create any oisturoanoe tne three gentlemen got out, and reeorted to a oeb on the stand, and repaired to the show gronnl, the policemen driving off with their carriage, amidst the laughter of tbo large crowd assembled. On the Mayor taking his seat on the bench on Toeeday morming, Mr. Cheeler, the reporter for this joarmal, asked permission of his Worship to make a fow observation!, which feeing granted, be related what is stated above. The Mayor expressed his regret at whet bad taken place, and enquired of Inspector Harris if be knew anything of the circumstances ? Inspector Harris replied that ho believed 'something ol the sort did take place. The Mayor said he oom Id only repeat that he wss extremely sorry for what had occurred, and thought tho polioe should have taken, a cab from the etand, instead of taking tbe carriage provided for the Press. Mr. II. J. Buchan remarked that the member* of the Press should have retained their seata Had it been himself ho woold not have got out. Mr. Chester observed that he thought it much better not to canss any disturbance by resisting, and by his advice they all left tbe vehicle. Beside*, when he told the driver to go on a policeman took hold of the horse's head, with a ri*w, no doah*, of preventing hi* dMne *o. H* considered the Insult spnlied to the Maror ofe th town equallv or pi ore than it did to the members of the Prow. The subject then dropped.—(Civility costs nothing, ana is at all times much more effective than hard or offensive words, and if a little more brain* and culture were introduced into our polioe force it would not only be a blessing to this town, but to the country at jarge ) Sunday School Taaav —Oa Tuesday the children attending the Melbourne street Bible Chsistian Sunday school had their annual treat in the Southampton Cricket Ground.
