A Greek Russian Paper. His Grace, Johannes, Bishop of the Greek-Russian Church in Alaska, proposed to start a weekly paper in this city to represent the interest of the church with which he is connected. The society known as the Greek-Russian Slavonian Orthodox Eastern Church and Benevolent Society endeavored to establish an organ in this city some time since. It was printed in three languages the Russian, Slavonian and English. The type, press and materials were presented by the Russian Government. The paper, however, failed to pay expenses, and the society has made a present to the Church of the material, which is to be used in the publication of the new Church organ.
