Liverpool pa pers to the 20th September, and Lon don to the lSlh, have been received. 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. him is surrounded in this place, and will probably be obliged to fall back in the utmost haste on his fortresses. Letters from Nauplia state that this took place on the 18th, and that the immortal garrison of Mis solonghi were actively engaged in it. 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 u 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." ill xnniuuu. in uiu uuui&u ui 8 months, 170 slaves have pur chased their freedom, for which lu da, W.

A tragic affair has recently occurred at Boston. A widow by the name '.of -Fairbanks left that city on Monday night with her two children for Charlestown. She passed the toll house of the bridge, but was not observed to pass on the opposite side. Subsequently the bodies of tne two little girls and the bonnet of the mother, have been found in the river, and it is recollected that 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. .
