servants to different individuals, and it is
presumed for the purpose of ascertaining

be robbed without disturbing the family.

she possesses of repelling and punishing aggres

minions in Europe and Asia, contains probably
50,000,000 inhabitants; and her regular military
force amounts to 600,000 men, hardy, robust,
and capable of enduring great fatigue, comman
ded by officers well versed in the science of war,
and experienced in all the modern improvements
. in military tactics. Her sovereign is absolute
and despotic, not depending on the caprice of a
military guard, like the Ottoman Sultan, for the
continuance of his power, or the safety of his
head. In addition to all this, he will have, in
the event cf a w ar with Turkey, a powerful and
exasperated ally within her own territory : the
revolted Greeks will divide the attention and
strength of the Turks, and give a double facility
to the success of Russia. From this brief view
of the relative strength and situation of the two
empires, it seems inevitable, in case of rupture,
that Turkey, no matter how bravely and despe
rately she may fight, and she will do both,
must fall. After the division of the Roman Em

The following is an extract of a letter
received at Nachitochcs, from Dr. Hewet
son, dated
" St. Antonio, .Yui. 4, 1821.
" On the night of the 3d of October,
General Long, with fifty men of all na
tions, entered the town of La Balii i, pro
ducing the greatest consternation by their
horrid yells. (I happened to be there at
the time.) They put to flight the centi
nels, and took possession of the fort and
artillery without opposition. As soon as
intelligence of this reached St. Antonio,
the governor dispatched Col. Ignatio Pa
ris, with 150 men, with orders to retake
the place, and make prisoners of Long
and his party. He arrived near La Ba
hia, and sent to Long, requesting to see
him, to ascertain from him the cause of
his unfriendly visit. Long met him, and
stated his object was to establish the inde
pendence of these provinces. Colonel
Paris replied, that their independence was
already achieved, and it was unnecessary
for him to give himself any further trouble
about it ; but, if he was an independent
republican, as he stated, why not let such
occupv the fort, for they were, the propei
persons to hold it ? Long would not Rive
it up. This interview was at 8 o'clock in
the morning, and half after 1 1 Col. Paris
made the attack. A warm firing was
kept up for twenty-four hours. Long's
artillery did no execution, and he finally
surrendered at discretion. Kong and his
party were brought prisoners to St. An
tonio, and from thence were sent to SjI
tillio to take their trial. It will be a hard
one, being regarded as public robbers and
" On the 17th of October the entry of
Yturbide into Mexico was announced
here, and the independence of the empire
ratified. This news was received with
trreat reioicincrs, and since, this city has
been in a constant uproar by illuminations,
tc dcums, and fandangoes
The Boston Evening Gazette, in pub
lishing the account brought by the U. S.
schooner Shark, that there was reason to
believe that no Americans were now en
gaged in the Slave Trade, gives the fol
lowing hypothesis in contradiction of it :
l We have the best reasons for believ
ing that the Slave Trade was never car
ried on with more spirit and determina
tion than it has been the present year,
from the Havana ; and we fear (from too
authentic intelligence to doubt the fact)
that many of the vessels thus employed
are owned by American citizens, who are
concealed from our cruisers by the flimsy
veil of the Spanish flag, and the mask of
Spanish papers. When Slaves, upon the
Coast, are reduced in price to 8 15 or 20
per head, and are sold in Cuba at SSOO,
the temptation becomes too great for des
perate men to resist, and operates as an
inducement to unprincipled individuals
to engage in the traffic at every hazard."
The collections in Philadelphia for the
Orphan Asylum, amount to near 23,000
dollars. Adding to this, the sum which
was insured, 6000 dollars, and the dona
tion of the State Legislature, 5000 dollars,
they have a total of 33,800 dollars. It is
said that the British Ambassador at
Washington, Mr. Canning, transmitted
one hundred dollars to the managers of
the Institution, as a contribution from his
own purse. 'I his liberality, says the Na

Cincinnati, (ohio.) As a proof of the
abundance and cheapness of provisions in
the state of Ohio, we give the following
of their predecessors, and thnt the chantrc will i
be merely a change of men, and be followed by
events of no greater moment than a stormy de
bate in the Chamber of Deputies, in which a
great many brave things will be said, accompa
nied with violent gesticulations; many high-sounding
panegyrics delivered on the departed great
ness of the Trench nation, ::p.y gloomy pic
tures drawn of its present condition ; and then
things will go on in their usual course, and
France remain as sf is. Lo?is will continue to

Spain is in a very unsettled state, and, from
several accounts, would -ic.-m to be on the eve
of a revolution. li;t du accounts are not to
be implicitly relied on: the pxture is doubtless
too highly eorcd. Ferdinand himself, howev
er, appears to appr.hnd the worst; for in arc
ply to h's ministers, who, on account of the pop
ular clamor, tendered their resignation, which he
rc f"ccd to receive, he concludes, in language
bohl and dignified, as follows : " My revolted sub
jects conspire against my life and like the un
fortunate Louis XVI. I am destined to be the
second victim of the revolutions in Kuropc ; but
at least I will not perish as he did, who has justly
been designated the Martyr King I will meet
death, sword in hand, at the head of my guards."
We feel no prrticular respect for Ferdinand, ci
ther as a king or a man : as a king, he has wan.
ted dignity ; and as a man, moral rectitude : Hut
we cannot but give him credit for the spirit dis
played in the above, and, being a sovereign, for
acting, in one instance, at least, like a sovereign.
The aspect of things in Portugal is likewise not
very flattering: but whatever may be the result
of the i evolution there, we have little hope that
the condition of the people will be much ameli
orated. "Whether king John be a constitutional
king, or king without a constitution, it will be
pretty much the same with the people in either
Asiatic dominions, and the glory of Islamism set
forever in Europe, he should not complain : he
would only be despoiled of what his predeces
sors had taken by violence from others, and
what he now holds only by force.
The conquest of Turkey by Russia is fraught
with danger to Europe ; for it will give to her
the exclusive navigation of the Black Sea, as
well as possession of fine ports in the Mediter
ranean, and enable her to create a powerful navy,
a navy competent to cope with that of England,
and to contend successfully for the sovereignty of
the ocean. Being thus powerful on the water as
she is on the land, she would give laws to all Eu
rope ; and distribute crowns and dismemberking
doms with greater facility than ever did Napoleon.
Even now she hangs like a dark clould in the north,
which the statesmen and the sovereigns of Eu
rope watch with anxious eyes, as boding them
no good : they see the danger at a distance, and
dread its nearer approach.

promise events of more importance than any , world, if the sun shine upon a man, it
thing else, and seem to occupy no small share of
the attention of the European cabinets ; and well
they may. The designs of the northern auto
crat, which are fast developing, his immense
power, and the p-ospect of a great accession to
it, furnish real cause cf alarm ; and the time may
arrive, when Francis and Frederic, and even
Great-Britain, will wish, and vainly wish., for the
genius of Napoleon, to protect them from the
overwhelming force of the peaceable Alexander.
It is evidently the determination of Alexander
to take advantage of the present commotions in
the Turkish empire, and, if not to overturn it,
to take from it a decent slice. Moldavia and ' honorable and generous; to be outwitted,
Wallachia, at least, must be dissevered ; and it is
said he must likewise possess a fortress in the

man's conscience upbraid him not, there

have enough to spare to cover him and
his whole tribe, is grateful ; to turn your

and pride it is to outwit you, is one of
Morca, the ancient Peloponnessus, for the pur
pose of protecting the Greeks against any fu
ture outrages of the Turks. Nothing, it is sup
posed, but a compliance with these terms on the
part of Turkey, will save her from a war with
Russia. If this, then, be the state ot atlairs, lit
tle doubt can be entertained that war must en
sue ; in which event, let us see what chance Tur
key has of coping successfully with her ambi
tious neighbor.
Turkey in Europe, it issstimated, contains a
bout 10,000,000 inhabitants ; Turkey in Asia, 10,
500,000, and Egypt, about 3,250,000 : the whole
number, therefore, of the subjects of the Otto
man Sultan is somewhere about 24,000,000. The
whole force of Turkey, naval and military, docs
not probably amount to more than 400,000 men ;
of these, 100,000 are janissaries, the most effi
cient, and more to be depended upon, perhaps,
than all the rest. 400,000, then, are the whole
regular force of Turkey; but after deducting
the marines, the garrisons, Sec. who only march
w hen the Grand Signor takes the field, there
will not remain more than 200,000 effective men.
But even all this force she cannot spare to f.ght
against Russia; for while the latter power is a
bout attacking her on the north, Persia has al
readv attacked her on the cast, and has, accor
ding to the late accounts, taken Bagdad, on the
the most exhilarating circumstances in
the life of genius. Charleston Courier.
From the National Intelligencer.
Two joint rules of proceeding have
been adopted, for the regulation of the
proceedings of the two Houses of Con
gress, which promise to have an impor
tant effect, for the future, on the closing
scenes of the Sessions of Congress.-
These rules provide that no bill shall ori
ginate in cither house during the three
last days of each session of Congress, and
that no bill shall be presented to the Pres
ident for his signature during the last day
of any session. The intention is, to pic
vent inconsiderate and hasty legislation,
and to allow the President time to exam
ine the bills presented to him, before he
ratifies them by his signature, or returns
them with objections, if he should think
proper so to do, and to give time to the
two houses to consider the bill thus re
turned. We anticipate. fiom thee rules
a beneficial effect. If they do no more,
they will add to the dignity of the pro
ceedings cf Congress. If in practice
they are found prejudicial, it will be easy
to abrogate them, and it is well worth the
while to make the trial cf them-
