At home every {Saturday from 2 to 5 p. m. another european war threatened. Late news from Europe is to the effect tnat the insurrection of the Greek subjects or Turkey, which b*gan in Crete, was spreading, and bad broken eut in several or the insular dependencies in the Archipelago, a* well ^ m Tbessaly. In fact, the whole of tbe Ureek subject* of tbe Sultan, as well as the population of the Greek kingdom iUelf, are thorongh. Jy excited and aroused by their sympathy "Witn the struggling Cretans, and it seems impo??ible to restrain them longer fro-n taking part in the war against the Turks. An insurrection is on the (loint ot breaking out in tbe Province of Bosnia; and we learn by the latest mail trom Europe that Roumania and Servia are preparing for the opportunity?which the present insnrrectionary movements will give them?to shake off ;he lau shadow or allegiance to tbe Sultan in bis alarm, he ha? made a levy ot 150,000 troops to suppress the levoit. England and France have long been trying to stave off and postpone this terrible and Intricate Eastern Question," bnt Christian JKnrope and America are in cloee sympathy with a long suffering and gallant people lighting for national life, and tboee Powers must take part in tbe content. Russia bat already ax pressed her iympatby. More than forty jear* have elapsed *ince tbe Cbriauan world re*poad?d to tbe Grecian*' call tor help to aid them in their contest for tbe freedom of their country, and tbeir need i* just aa pressing aow. The sympathies of tbe Liberals of Continental Europe, and also of Eaglaad, are with tbe Greet*. Representative men like Mazzmi and Victor Hngo have >pok*a eloquently in their behaU. and Garibaldi, in a letter just published, administers a just re. bake to the Machiavellian poll cy of the Eng. lish Government. It u proposed to call a meeting or thacitl sens ot New York at an early day, to eon*lder the proper measnre* fer obtaining and forward' lag assistance to the Greeks; aad such meetings will probably be held in ether cities. It begin* to look as if "the sick man ' was sear bis end: in fact, Turkish despotism would long since have been broken down, bad it not fceen for the anticipated trouble to come, in the a*w arrangement or nationalities. Bnt such considerations will not, in all probability, now avail to save tbe crumbling Turkish Empire from ruin, particularly it the proposed Euro, pean conference tails to settle the matter wltbaut an appeal to anas. the mexican situation We have some hopes for Mexico yet. Not only is the latest intelligence from that country definite and intelligible, bat it really does " leng'h that tbe Empire is parsing away and the Republic looming up. Max is sick with rever near tbe City of Mexico; a defcebment ot French troops will embark on tbe 14th inst. for La Belle France; and the Mexican Minister here has received a aopy of tbe officia1 report from Gen. Trevino confirming tbe capture of Guadalajara by the national forces Of the Republic; also, offlcral intelligence that the City of Aguascallentes was occupied by Gen. Clomex, or the Republican army, on the -25th ultimo. In addition to this, Mr. Consul Godoy, &i Ban Francisco, has dispatched to the Governor of California and to MajurUenerai McDowell, Department Commander, an official summing ?P or the Mexican situation, in which be claims that ?the complete triumph or the aauonal arms will soon crown the valor or the defenders of independence and liberty, tbe conciliation proclaimed m February, 1S37. and the legitimate Government be re-established tbrongbont tbe country." He say*; "The rorce* under the command of General Corona having occupied Maxatlan on the L1th alt., there doe* not remain a single French aoldier or traitor in the State or Sinaloa. The aame is the case iu the State* ot l>urango and C;oltma. tbe treops who sustain the legitimate authority having occupied their capitals.

Shirting and sheet, ings of good qualities are In better demaud and firmer. Tbe tone af tbe market. both for bleached and unbleacbed, is decidedly improved. Drills of heavy weight are in request. Canton flannels are dull. Stripes are moving more freely. Denims also are doing better. Delaines are Inactive, and will be so until spring styles appear in the opening of the spring trade. Coburgs are very dull. Broadcloths are more inquired for, and prices are unchanged. Ca>sin.eres are without improvement A very i limited demand exists for light weights. Satinets are dull. Flannels are in i-mall demand ! Blankets are lower. Tbere is little doing in imported goods. Spnug goods are arriving alowly.

On their return they were attacked by a body ot Indians, numbering about tbree hundred. A guard stationed ou a bill some distance of! immediately signalled to tbe Fort, and a body of mounted infantry and cavalry, abont 44 In number, were scut out under Col. Car ring ton, to relieve the train. About thirty of the" party under Captain Fetterman went la one direction and fourteen under Col. Camagton iu another The larger party first came upon tbe Indiana, and a fight- ensued, which was continued tor a distance of eight milesTbe Indians were whipped Anally and routed* though not until Lieut. Kinghu n had been killed and scalped and several wounded. Another party, under Lieut Drummond with eight or ten men. were surrou ?ded by the In. dians, and the little party were comp?||ed to cut their way out, in which Sergt. Do wen wa* killed. A number of Indians were killed and wounded during the light. Ob the morning ol the l!>th of December the Indians again attacked a w>od train, but were soon reputed. No other outbreak has been reported until tbe atternoon of the -.'1st ol December. when the terrible massacre took place, the whole of the command under Captain Fetterman being slaughtered. INCREASE OF COMPENSATION Tbe Clerks of theeeveral Departments were to-day represented before the Senate Finance Committee by Messrs. H D. Drandt, ol the Navy, D. JVI. Kelsey, of the Treasury, J. jj. Dnvdy, of the War, J. M. Dtanchard, of the Interior, and W. Duaue Wilson, of the Agricultural Departments. Their chiefmiaaion was to urge the passage of a more liberal and satisfactory measure than tbe House bill, on the ground of public economy, justice, and necessity, and to aeenre the adoption of Mr Farasworth's substitute, giving *0 per cent, additional compensation from and arter tn* |ib of March, ISKm. 1 be snbject was presented before tbe committee by Messrs. Kelsey, Orally, Hlancbard, Brandt, and Wilsou, and the interview was considered satisfactory, what?\er way be its final result.

The bill Jo regulate the teunre of offlce wan ban taken op, tba question being on the amendment of Mr. Sotnaar, heretofore re. ported. Mr. Mc Don gall argued against the bill It was nettling more than an attainpt of the maJorlty to control, tor their own benefit, mi the offices. The sasjority had lost all regard and all respect for the feeling* and wishes of the minority. The opinion of every Seuator on this floor wan formerly listened te, but now in these daya of caucuses, tbey had no rights whatever. It was ouly within the last eight years that sncb a thing as a caucus been ti?ard of In the Federal Senate. Now, ever/, thing waa determined there. The tyranny of a majority waa worse than tba tyranny of a howling mob.

The President had left only one man in offlce in West Virginia who sup. ported the policy of Congress. Mr. Cowan bad no doubt the President had been grossly mismfusmed, not only in tbis, but u other instances. This postmaster at W**hington, it seems, bad changed bis opinion of the Presldeut; but there were many others, including tome here, wbo had also changed their opinion. Some ot them had a short tune ad. vocated the policy of the President quite as vehemently as they now repudiate it.

The Committee then rose, and the Chairman [Mr. Cobb] reported tbe bill and amendments to the House.
