The extracts given arc important both
in a political and commercial point of
view: the conferences at Ackerman be
tween the Russian and Turkish commis
sioners, does not proceed so harmoni
ously as was anticipated; and we may
yet indulge a hope that a diversion will
'be made in favor of the unfortunate
Greeks, whose heroic struggles deserve
a better fate than that which threatens
them. The demand for our great staplet
Cotton, has evidently increased in the
British market, accompanied by a slight
improvement in pricej which our read
ers will perceive has produced a corres
ponding advance in this country.
England. The London pa
pers contain a variety of extracts
upon the state of the trade and
manufactures of Great Britain,
which show an evident- and con
tinued improvement in the gener
al aspect of affairs. Business in
creases but slowly, however, and
the prices arc as yet but little bet
ter. But employment is becom
ing more plentiful every week, and
it is confidently hoped "that, the
effects of the late depression will
soon disappear, leaving "only a sa
lutary lesson behind."
Russia and Turkey. It is sta
ted by way ofConstantinoplo that
the first conference between the
Turkish-ahd Russian Plenipoten
tiaries, was held on the 13th of
August, when the Turks demand
ed the execution of the article of
treaty of Bucharest, which gua
ranteed to the Porte the restora
tion of the Asiatic fortresses.
The Russian Commissioners de
clared that the emperor would ne
ver consent thereto, seeing that
these fortresses are actuajly situ
ated in countries nvhich by late
conventions have been rendered
subject to the sovereignty of Rus
sia. It seems that since this inter
view every thing has remained in a
state of stagnation, and that the
respective Commissioners have
sent couriers to their Courts, to
ask . for fresh instructions. M.
Minciaki has had conferences with
several distinguished Walachians
,and Moldavians, since which a ru
mor has prevailed that Russia not
only opposes the restitution of the
Asiatic fortresses, but demands
the complete and rigorous main
tenance of the rights secured to
Walachia, Moldavia and even Ser-
via, under the guarantee of Russia.
Zantc, Aug. 13. (Private let
ter). ..Ibrahim, informed of the dis
cord which prevailed amons the
Greeks at Nauplia, advanced on
this city with his army; but Cara-
iscaKi succeeaeu in reconciling al
parties; and from every quarter o
Greece troops assembled there to
attack Ibrahim, after having laid
an ambush for him in the defiles
of Parthcnia (Cani Scala,) they
gave him battle; they feli upon his
troops, put them in contusion, and
obliged them to retreat to Tripo
litza, four leagues distant, with the
loss of 3000 men, and all their
baggage and, ammunition. The
Greeks had only 500 men on the
victory, they marched on Tripo-
utza ana iaia suie lu it.

Letters from Nauplia state that
this took place on the 18th, and
that the immortal garrison of Mis

Whilst Ibrahim marched on
Nauolia, Reschid Pacha attacked
Athens; but he was repulsed by
Gouras'and obliged to retreat.
All Greece is now in motion,
This month and the next will de
cide her fate; and we hope that
she will come out of the struggle
triumphantly. There are no 1 ur-
kish troops either in Thessaly or
Epirus, and we hear ot no new en
rollment in any quarter.
Slaves. We find, in the Lon
don papers, a gratifying official
document issued by the Austrian
Government, respecting the trafhc
in slaves. The frrcat obiect of i
this document is comprised in one
single sentence of it. The first
article runs thus; "Every slave
shall become free the moment he
touches the soil of Austria, or even
one of its ships."

has recently occurred at Boston.
A widow by the name '.of -Fairbanks

night with her two children for
Charlestown. She passed the toll
house of the bridge, but was not
observed to pass on the opposite

a noise was heard, line that of
something falling into water, and
tlitf cry of children, about the time
she passed on the bridge.. ..From
these facts,-it is supposed the wo
man threw herself with her child
ren into the river.
