MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS. Advices from Athens report that the idea of Greece following the example af Piedmont during the Crimean war is viewed with much favour by the Hellenic Go- vernment, and is likely, if the occasion should arise, to be carried into practice. The Observer contains the following announce- ments Representations have, we believe, been made by Russia to England to the effect that America, as a great maritime Power, should take part in the Congress. No objection, if we are rightly informed, has been offered on our part to this proposal, and the Government has taken advantage of the suggestion to propose that if any Powers which did not sign the Treaty of Paris are admitted to the Congress, Greece, as a maritime State deeply interested in the Eastern Question, should be directly represented at the Conference. We are informed that a communication has been made by the Russian Government to the Porte to the effect that it would be desirable to make arrangements for the! removal of the Mussulman population from Bulgaria. Advicss from Athens report that the idea of Greece following the example of Piedmont during the Crimean war is viewed with much favour by the Hellenic Government, and is likely, if the occasion should arise, to be carried into practice."
