THE GREEK MURDERS. Another batch of correspondence (making the tenth) has been published in reference to the mur- ders by Greek brigands. The leiters of Mr. Ers- kine add verv little* to the information previously given. Sir H. Elliott, who called at Athena on his return to Constantinople, expressed to the Greek Government and to the King the horror and in- dignat on which the crime has excited in this coun- try. Sir Henry also made known'to the King the full appreciation which was felt by the English Government of the kind sympathy for the captives which he had manifested. In reply, King George repeated what he had already stated to Mr. Erskine. In a despatch to Mr. Erskine, Lord Clarendon instructs him to insist on the right of the English lawyers now in Athens to take part in the exami- nation of parties charged with complicity in the murders. In the next despatch Mr. Erskine encloses to the Earl of Clarendon a, copy of a journal kept by the late Mr. Herbert from the day of his capture until the morning of that day on which he was murdered, and it was placed in his hands on Friday morning by Mr. Consul Merlin, who had received it from the wife of the courier, Alexander, and who stated that she found it in a basket containing old newspapers. The diary, which is very brief, adds nothing to our previous information. The latest despatch from Mr. Erskine to the Earl of Clarendon refers to the capture of several of the notorious brigands, and of the exposure of their heads at Larissa, particulars of which have already been received by telegraph. The following telegraphic reports respecting bri- gandage to the Minister of War are published — "Lepan.o, April 25, May 7, 1870, seven a.m.—With much satisfaction we inform you that yesterday, at the village of Arachova, Demos of Proehion. the notorious brigand chiefs Constantelos, Papatrambas, Spathias. and Evangheli were killed. A follower of Censtantelos, the proclaimed brigand Thanaso- poulos, was captured, mortally wounded. The bri- gand chief Tzitouras, and another (unknown) have been wounded. It is hoped they will be captured. By these satisfactory results the question of brigand- age at Lepanto has been solved.—The Eparch of Lepanto—(Signed), C. Yannakos the Commander of the Flying Column, J. Douglas, captain." "Le- panto, April 25, May 7, 1870, eight a.m.—With re- ference to our telegram, bearing the same number, concerning the destruction of brigand chiefs, we inform you that at this moment, eight o'clock a.m. a special messenger has brought us the satisfactory n tvs of the destruction of the band of Spanos (not the Attica chief), he himself, and his follower Koumbourli, being killed, and the brigand Yanno- poulo captured. They were attacked at Gregoriou of Apodotias. The results are invaluable.—The Eparch of Lepanto—(Signed), C. Yannakos; the Commander of the Flying Column, J. Douglas, cap- tain." Steilida, April 25, May 7, 1870, 8 10 a.w. —I am glad to inform you that I have just learned by a detachment of Gardikiou that yesterday in a conflict of the military and brigands, between Shamakou and St. Theodore, a brigand was killed. The pursuit continues. Details by post.—(Signed) Demetrakarakos, Lieutenant Colonel of the 10th Battalion. According to a telegram from the Eparch of Valto, dated April 2' o.s. the brigand Tzirka has been captured.
