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.
