Jt shows a becoming regard, on the part of the Government, to the mercantile interests and the honour and dignity of our republ’C, and that in their adoption of this comi)aratively cheap defence of nations, they have taken counsel from a maxim, which will bear to bo carried out from individual to national concerns, thn\ prevenfive are preferable to reme dial measures.

The late I’resiileni DvMgbt, in a ser mon on intemperance, mentions, among the causes of that most fatal and alarm ingly prevalentevil, the following:— 1. Example. '2. Frequenii'ig tli«jse phices where strotigdrink is conveniently obtained. 3. F.vil companions. -1. Cus tomary And regular drinking. Its kiiilu — 1. Il exhibits the subject of it in the light of exirernt; odiousneas, and degradation. 2. Drunkenness exposes the subject of it to manv, and those ol- teri extreme ilangers. The drunkard exposes himself to many itinptations and many sins. 1. A drunkard necessarily wastes liisown property. 5. 'i’he drunk ard destroys his health. C. The drunk ard wastes his reputation. 7. The drunkard destroys his rea-son. 8. The drunkard destroys his usefulness. 9. Tde ilrunkard ruins hi# family.—(1. Ih spreads through his family the habit ol inloxicatiun. 2. By squandering iheir property, he deprives them of both coni- i'ort and respectability. 3. lie breaks their hearts by sutijecting them lo insup portable mortilication.) 10. The drunk ard destroys his life. 11. The drunkard ruins his soul. A late Liverpool |)aper gives the fol lowing direciions for obtaining flowers of ditfcreni colors, on the same siem.— “Split a small twig of the Klder bush lengthwise, and having scooped out me pith, fill each of the compartments with seeds of llovvers of dilierent sorts, but which blossom about the sanie time, sur round them vkiih mould, and then, tying together ihe two bits of wood, plant the whole in a j)ot filled with earth properl) prepared. The stems of the dift'erent flowers will thus be so incorjiorated as to exhibit to the eye only one stem, throw ing out b'ancbes covered with flowers analogous to the seed which produced them. The biter bit.—A travelling tin mer chant, (says the Schoharie N. Y. Repub lican,) from tlie land of “ wooden nut megs and 'jorn gun flints,” while moving with his portable ware-house ihrougii an adjoining town, called upon a very shrewd descendant of St. Crispin, or in other words, a pretty “ wide awake” shoema ker, who, having on hand a Plattsburgh dollar, thought the present opportunity a very tine one for disposing ol it—besides the immortal honor he would acquire by having “taken in a Yankee pedlar,” a consideration of no small importance, il being generally believed a difficult point lo accomplish, lie accordingly bought a tin paste horn^ and giving a k?wiving wink to the by-slanders,offered his I'lattsburgh bill, and requested Ins change. The pedlar looked grave, and sliojk his head —he did not like the bill, he said, for he had heard the bank was down. Crispin said, “there wasiK^ such thing—the re port was set ailoat by brokers and spec ulalors, men not to be relied upon—the bills were j)erl‘cctly good; as good as specie—and as to that inaiter, a little bet- tei, because it w^s less trouble to carry Itand all the spectators joined with him, in recommending the bill to be a good bill, and the bank tiiat issued it, to be a bank of “exceeding good rcjjuie.” 'I’he Inll ijeingso highly recommended, the unsusjAclin" pedlar put ii in his pocket and liaiided out the change—the by slan ders pul on long faces—the shoemaker lauglied behind his ears, and no one looked renllij honest bui the pedlar, liul trading dul tiot stop hei ; Crisjiin, el::l ed with his success, clVeied to sell the man of tin a lot of shoes, at a ieduced price, for cash. The pedlar haigained for them ai SlO—deposited the shoes in the cart-box—paid the amount in Plntts- hvrgh bills—and ilrove leisurely ofl', wbis- ihng the old tunc of cul'\'i a a ami a- sleep.” NKW-Y0HK,“ SKl’T. 5. the Editors of the New York Daily Advcriiser are indebted to Capt. Arnold, of the ship Kobert Wilson, which arrived on Monday niyht in 35 days from Liver pool, for the loan oi Liverpool papers ol the 29lh and London ol tiic 27th July. The British revenue appears to be falling ofl' at the ra'.e of i;GOU,OUO per quarter, or X’,400,000, per annun—no promise of iniproveuicnt. Ihe 1 inies ol tJie ‘27lh, says—if there are parasites base enough to fkiicr the community,,when ii ought to be ailmonisLed, and to cry out all’s well, vvhin the ship is almost on her Ix'ams ends, we arc of a diflereiii kind of Knglishmen. If a broad and decisive scale of retrenchment is not adopted, the credit and honcjr of this much enduring and long cotiHding nation will be brought to a speedy cai.ASlrophe. ” 'I'he establishtiienis of the empire, military atid civil, must he reduced, or I be Kationa! creditor will be made to pay lor them in the flesh which lies nearest tu his litart. ” 'i he Dublin Mornitig Post says, that all apprehensions for the satety of ihe po laioe crops have vanished in that coun ii y. No change for the better appears to have tiiken place in the siiuaaon of the manufacturing and laboring classes. 'I'lie statements continued favorable respecting the harvest- The (ilasgow Courier remarks liiat the wheal »vas uni versally good. The oat crop was every where deficient in straw, and iliat there was little doubt that the ports for foreign oats would soon be opt iicd. The Manvfnctnritig Districts.—The Liv erpool Courier «jf tlie 2Glb, s;iys—“The accounis from difVerenl parts (d’ out country, and IVom many moi e of ihe dis tant manufacturing parts of (ireal Britain, continue to be of a vctv painful desci ip- lion; and w hat hf.s added to the alarm i^, tfiat in iManchesicr, blcckj>ort, and some otlier places, meetings have been called bv siHiie desperate and iuocious wreiches, in order to inilame the sutJering popula tion, and urge them to deeds of iilood. It is, however, but justice to the great body of ilie unimployed workmen to slate that little impression appears to have been made by these inflammatory har angues, and the more secret means which, no doubt, have been resorted to to produce riot, in order that a few un principled incendiaries may profit by it, und plunder their neighbours. The Albion of the 29ih, says: “We lament to state the distress which we so often have had occasion to mention, con tinues to increase day after day. Some hundreds of our wretched countrymen added to tht thousands already destitute of employment. An accumulation of misery is occasioned which demands in stant relief. The funds so promptly rais ed by private subscriptions are exhaust ed, and in our cpionion it becomes the imperative duly of government to insti tute an immediate inquiry into the state of the country.” At Manchester there were slight ap pearances of an improvement iu busi ness. The king had given a further donation of £1000 to the Spilallields weavers. A serious riot had taken place at Dum fries in consequence of a meal monger taking the advantage of an inadequate supply, and attempting to advance the \)i ice of meal 2d. per stone. He barely escaped with life. Spain.—I'lie Constitutionnel contains a letter from Madrid, dated the lilh Ju ly, in w hich it is stated, that the Captain (ieneral ofBadajds had sent an express lo Madrid for a reinforcement of troops, which he considers absolutely necessary, from the public feeling having taken a new direction, as well for the purpose of strengtliening the g.irrison, as for placitig detachments in several tosvus in ihe province, particularly tiiose nearest the I’ortuguese lioiiuer. Tiie same lei- !er slates, that the public mind has un- liergone a similar change iti the Capital itself. ’i’he arrivals of couriers 'from Lisl>o?i and I'aris succeed each other with ijreat rapidity. ti-.£ oli.cr pipers, it.

The ceHtral corps of t.u'se troops having been destroyed, the submission of the other corps in the distant stations is calculated upon as ctrtain by the Etoile j while the other papers speculate on the probability of those stationed at Larissa, called the “ City of the Janissaries,” and in other important posts, being able to make a successful stand againt the authority oi the Sultan. The late Elopement.—The hcaumonde in the west of the town has lately been con verted into a “School tor Scandal, in descanting upon the misforlunes of an honorable baroi:ct, deprived oi his ac complished lady.

She is young and beaulilul. A very clever weil-execuird poriraii of her and her husband were in the late exhibition at Somerset House. We can scarcely term this elopement a flight, as we have pret ty good reason to know that the guilty parlies areal this moment in one pa^t of the town, whilst the injured husband is residing at another. Inquiries have been made at Steven’s, Long’s, l^imncr’s, and other fashionable hotels at the west end of the town resorted to by the gallant Lothario, but as yet he has escaped de tection. Moruinf' Chronicle. The fashionable world are lost in sur prise, the parties both being very young. The lady left behind her all her valuable jewels, and even her purse, containing nearly a hundred sovereigns, on the toilet table.

The seducer, the same age as the husband, namely, twenty-five, is the son of a (ieneral Officer much es teemed I)V our late King A little boy, nine or ten years of age, was called as a witness at a late trial at Cambridge, England. After the oath was administereil, the Chief Justice, with a view of aseerliiining whether the boy was sensiide of the nature anil importance of an oath, addressed hiui, Little boy, do you know what ^ou have been doing?” “Yes, Sir,” the boy replied, “I have been keeping pigs for Mr. Banyard.” Examine ihe equitable decisions, de pending on the moral perceptions of the mind, made by a Hindoo Judge, four thousand years ago, an’d on the other side of the globe ; so of ihe Homan Judge in the days of 'i'itus or Justinian, in another quarter of the world ; and we find them made in a mannir, in winch the nioral and correct American Judge tiow fully acquiesces. _ I.ONDO.V, JULY 28.—The merchants and others connected wiih CJreece, are disap pointed this morning at the absence of in telligence lespeciing Lord' Cochrane.

On Captain Elliott’s visiting the Admiral, he met with the oflicer w ho commanded the Cyane when she was captured bv Commodore Siewart. The day following, the Admiral visited the Cyane, with oth er ofucers, and invited Capt. Elliott to dine. At his table Capl.

The Metropolitan, printed at Wavh- ington City, contains a letter from Ky giving some pai ticulars of the c.irly ii'^-. and tragical death of Mrs. Ri auchaT.ir, w hom the editor speaks of as pt>?sebsing more of the r«>/«f5of aRoma’'!n'>.atron !ir.', a village wife ! and w hose conduct “n'-.-. only challenges the sympathy, bui tl.? admiration of the world !” This is s’la'.Tic less enougli—but the letter itself is gross an outrage upon the moral and ; r ligious feelings of th^ country, that w ?; are sorry to see it copied into a juurny. n' this State. The writer, after saying thj; Mrs. B., in person, was very beai,!iu', observes; “Her thoughts were free c the air she breathed, and those w lu;s- souls never travelled beyond the dull ar .i ordinary pursuits of lif--, did not scrap! to afVirm that her free thoughts r\x\ne^\ her' It is. not known that Cul.
