BETWEEN TWO FIRES, TURKISH ARMY IS IN A BAD POSITION. Bay of Severe Fighting Re*nlt» In a Splendid Victory for the Greek Troops — Conflicting Reports as to the Outcome. Athens, April 21.—News has reached . here that the Greeks, after a desperate battle, Lave captured and burned Dam- wsi. Viglia is still resisting. Another division of the Greek troops has traversed the Revenl pass and captured three blockhouses. This division has almost reached Damasl, where it will effect a union with the force that captured the town. Twenty thousand troops under Gen. Smolenltz displayed the greatest bravery. Revenl lies twelve miles northwest ot Larlssa. Edhem Pasha, with a force Variously estimated at from 10,000 to 14,000 troops, led seven assaults against It Monday, but all were repulsed by the Greeks. Crown Prince Constantino has telegraphed here that the Turks at that point were completely and finally repulsed. The news of the capture of Damasl puts a new complexion upon the situation on the frontier, is a great encouragement to the government, and is Hkely to have the most exhilarating effect upon the spirits of the Greeks, who had been greatly depressed by the reverses of £helr troops at Xillouna ,'pass.' This success and the fact that the fall jot Prevesa seems imminent virtually offset the calamity at Mllouna, If the Greek divisions effect a union at Dam- asl, as la expected, there is nothing in the way of their prompt advance to Elassona. If Tyrnavo falls into tho hands of Edhem Pasha and the Turkish troops sweep down upon the plain ^ind advance to^ Larlssa to meet the force concentrated there under the crown prince, they will be between the "two grandUWiBloWoTThe Greek~armyr This seems to have been the object of Greek strategy. It is stated here in well-informed circles that the eastern squadron of the Greek fleet, which will shortly bo re- enforced by the Ironclad Spetzta, is planning an Important movement. This Is probably directed against Salonica. If this is made with dispatch, it is quite possible that the Greek ships could reach the gulf and shell the town of Salonica before the Aegean squadron of the Turkish fleet could interfere. The object of such a bombardment would be to cut off the Macedonian line of supplies to Edhem Pasha's ' camp at Elassona. Should the Greek troops advance from Damasi to Elassona the line of Turkish supplies could be cut at that point, and render the naval movement unnecessary. And It is possible that the brilliant success at Damasl •Will cause a modification in the sea program ot the Greeks. Taking a general survey of the field the fortunes of war thus far are pretty evenly divided, but the chances for the immediate future are decidedly In favor of~the Greeks. -The-government—has addressed — a note to tbe foreign ministers and consuls in Greece, calling their attention to the fact that Greece has adhered to the declarations of the Berlin congress of 1850, and expressing th$ hope that foreign governments will respect the laws of neutrality. GKEKKS OCCUPY MITYLENE. Volunteers Cut the Salonica Railway Near Kavala. London, *Aprll 21.—A dispatch.to^tha Morning Post from Constantinople says that the report that the Greek volunteers have cut the Salonica railway, near Kavala, Is not confirmed. But the Greeks have occupied Mitylene and Chios after a sharp engagement with the Turkish troops. A telegram to the Times from St. Petersburg says that Count Muravleff, the Russian minister, has dispatched a circular note to the powers advising them to observe, an expectant attitude in case either Turkey or Greece should request intervention. The correspond• ent understands that all the powers have agreed to continue to hold Crete with the forces already there. A dispatch to the Times from Cairo says that the Turkish government has called upon the • khedive to expel all the Greeks from Egypt. As the Greeks number 50,000 and are the chief promoters of. commerce and trade, their removal is desired by none save • the old Turkish party. It is probable that France will undertake to protect them, and thus the expulsion will be avoided. Sends a Second Squadron. Constantinople, April 21.—A second Turkish squadron left tbe Golden Horn this afternoon for the Dardanelles.
