However, wc shall never interfere with individual interest, uidess the pnl)lic i^ood actually requires it; and even then, our interference shall be char acterized bv tlie utmost official compas sion. Although we act under the hi,Lj!i- cst atithority, and from which there is nu — namely, the public, yet we would rather be distini^uished for kindness tlian cruelly, for beuuty than deformity ; and wc prefer convincing by persuasion, not by force. We ha\i as much regard fjr the public good as Mr. Handolph or Mr. M’Duftie ; and although our inlluence is more circun;scri!)efl, and our ciiaracters less elevated, yel we have as good a right to make a noise in the world as they have.

Litth- do they imagine ihat the pul>lic loses by this, in several re- bpects—in the first place, their talents arc str.otherctl, svJ/hrnL-d, w ith the stench of I'i'r.rco; their lasie is blunted, and the ruii-s of j)oiiioness violated. U is no fioiibt for this reason that our literary geti’lemen, instead of pursuing some con genial employment, and at times enrich ing tne columns of the Culnwba Journal With the productions of genius and taste, are conteiil, after having acquired learn- ini.:, to let their fine ideas evajiorate in the fumes of a segar, .and to chew and smoke away the balance of their lives. So that in place of opening their ixouths in favor of iheir country and its insliiu- tioTiS, they literally shut up and slop tliem ■with tul)acco.

Aut. Jvurna!. The declaration, that the {Vieiids of Mr. Adams believe that his administration will not continue longer than the present term, is certainly far from the fact. His friends were never more united, never more sanguine of his re-election, and never more disposed to accord liim eve ry proper support, than at jiresent. They have not a doubt of his success at a se cond trial, and they have no fear whatev er, that the election will come before Congress ; as they are firm in the convic tion that the people will dccide it in his favour. The great ado, therelore, that is making to convince the people of the i'ears of his friends in his behalf, is only a crafty device, to build up ihe forlorn hope of o[)posiion. Stratagem in war, often achieves more than strength, and our political adversaries have practically u^ddopted the maxim. [ Trenton True Jlmtr.

We are sorrv to have to state that Mis- soloiighi w as taken !>y the 'Turks on the 'J2d of April ; but the cause ofihe (ireeks does not apjiear to have been hopidess, as it was now believed thal the Christian I'ovvers were about to interfere in her bcluilf.

Trcderick PonsonI)y, the Lord High Commissioner, pro temi)ore, iti the Ioni an Islands, announcing thal the late ol the long disp.ited fortress ol Missolonghi was finally decided on ihe nigiil ol the 2id aiul '2Jd ultimo. ’ It appears thal the garrison having be come desp.eru’,e from the total want ol provisions, und tne lailure (d the Cireek lleei under adu.iral Miauli>, lo throw su()plies into tlie town,' deiermined to re- lire (Vom the plate. A sorlie was accor dingly made by LJi'O men, utulcr iwu Chieftains, w iih ti.e hope to gain one o‘> the batteries upon the sea .->huie, \vhi-i. was defended i)\ a large boily ol Arabs ; and the town was part'ally set fire to the same time, with the view of diverting the attention of the besiegers. It was hoped, that hy this aitark, away would be opened for the remainder of the garrison ; but this plan had been foreM-e;i by the Turks, and tiu-ir posts so strotigiy reinforced, thai, after atiemi)ting in vain to force a passage, by carrying the bat tery, the body, led by the two Chieftains, disperscii, and endeavoured to save them selves by gaiiung ilic mountains. They then poured into ihe town, and [)ut to the sword, or made prisoneis, all who opposed ihiMii. 'i'he loss siistained by the Turks on this occasion, is not rejiorted : bui;the obsti nacy of the conllict may be estimated by the fact, that aliliough between 2 and .')000 CIreeks perished in that town and al the fool of the mountain, only 130 aie re pot led to have been taken alive. Of the women and children, a considerable num ber are said to have destroyed themselves, or lo have been drowned ; but above 3000 have been returned as prisoners. 'I'he alarm created by their disjiersion was quickly communicated lo those who were lo follow on this hazardous enter- prize, who now abatiTOiied their jiosts, and sought shelter in sriiall tiundjcrs, in the most leiiable places in tlie neighbor hood of the town.—In the, niiilsi of the confusion, the Turkish troops rushed on from the »ea and the land side, and took possession of the fortifications to which, as a signal of victory, they set fire. FKOM THK LOXnON TIME‘S, MAY 17. We perceive inal the IaU of Missolon ghi has exciu'd some uneasiness among the friends of Greece, for the ultimate condition of that long sufferirig, and in teresting couniry. In making known the above unfortunate event on Monday last, we ihotight it right to add, that the iinal issue of the war was not likely, in our judgment, to depetid on any relative superiority attainable ihro’ military buc- cesses, by ihe'Furkish Government over the Greek nation : and such is gur convic tion still. 'I'hc .readers of ihe Times may rely up on the information conveyed to them, and repented, in former numbers of lliis Jour nal, on the uulhorily of our ftjreign cor respondents, as lo ihe nature atul politic al results of his Grace the Duke of Wel lington’s embassy lo the Court of St. Pe tersburg. On that subject, weclisiinciiy staled, that the Duke omy failed where failure was inevitable, in tlie etl’orls which he was compelled to make, for prevent ing, if such a ihing were pvjssible, a con test ijetwcen the Uusdan empire and the I'orlc, on points nol iminediaiely connec ted w ith the war now r;iging between the (ireeks and the lalter power. Kespecling (ireece, however, the Duke succeeded in a manner the mosi absolule and complete. The independence of Circ'ece was secured by his represciua- tions to the Russian Cabi*iet. Her re lease fiom Turkiy was not left contin gent on the precarious iisue of her own military iti.sources und exertions. Her lortresses might he captured and her t;i ave men slaughtered, and legions ol •\raljs miglv. overitui toe 111 Ids of the Morea : but the lesoltilion was aruKninc- ed by Lnglaiid. and P.tissia concurreil in it, uticipaivocally, that (jrc.’cce should no longer exist as ,i s!a\e to the 'I'lirks.
