BRIGANDAGE IN TURKEY. A correspondent writes from Broussa to the Manzoumei ikfai- It seems as if the feats of Fra Diavolo, Dick Turpin, and other outlaws, were destined to be thrown into the shade by the proceedings of our brace of loca! brandits, Iiefteri and Manoli. The latter, as yon are aware, has chosen the neighbourhood of this city as the scene of his exploits, which are beginning to cause us serious annoyance. On June 25, at a place called Dimbos, about three hours and a half distant from Broussa, he and his band stopped a caravan of some 70 or 80 persons. Summoned to give up their money, th, y all obeyed without a murmur, with the exception of two urabadiis driving wood carts, who made some demur, which cost them dear, for one of the poor fellows was •hot dead by Manoli himself, and the other was massacred by the rest of the gang. These rmirdmt accomplished, Manoli made a young girl who was one of the plundered party serve out raki to himself and his fellows; all trembling, she played the part of Hebe thus imposed upon her, under pain of death had she refused and, mollified apparently by his libations, the robber eventually suffered the travellers to proceed on their way without further injury, enjoining them to tell the governor of Broussa all that had taken place.
