RUSSIA-TURKEY — FRANCE.
A. D. states in the old Spanish colonies; the recogni1930. tion of the free Negro state of St. Domingo;
and the spirit with which, in 1821, the Greeks resisted the usurped dominion of the Turks, and asserted their freedom by force of arms. To check the ascendancy of the Turks, the English, Russians, and French united in 1827 for the protection of the Greeks, and destroyed the Turkish fleet at the battle of Navarino, drove the Turks out of the Morea, and endeavoured to insure the independence of Greece. In 1828 and 1829 the victories of the Russians in Asia and Europe shook the Turkish kingdom to its foundations, but did not utterly destroy it.
In 1830 the French revolted against their king, Charles X., in his designs upon their liberties, and placed on his throne Louis Philippe Duke of Orleans. The Belgians also rebelled against the King of the Netherlands, and new storms threatened the peace of Europe.
