A vessel has just arrived here, which fell in with an American schooner that had been robbed and plundered the day before. The Captain stripped him self and shewed how he was flogged from the neck to the heels. All the crew were inhumanly beat. Aboard the schooner "Were the mate and crew of an English brig, who were put there by these fellows, .who had first half hung , and then shot thu Captain, for no other offence but having his ship in ballast. The poor man, while they were snapping the musket at him, begged for his life on account of his ivife and children whom he had left at home. from a friend in Cincinnati, dated on Christmas day last : " Pork is now selling at 1 1-4 cents per lb; Flour, 1 1-2 brj. ; fine IJecf, hind quarter, 2 cents, Veal 2 cents ; Fowls, 6 1-4, Eggs, 8 per dozen ; Turkeys, very fine, 25 cents each ; Lard, 3 1-2; Hams, 5 as fine Cider as I ever drank, g2 in cluding barrel; Apples, Si ; Vegetables equally cheap Society excellent.

Such is represented to be the sit uation of Turkey, and such are the means which she possesses of repelling and punishing aggres sion. Russia, on the other hand, including her do 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 pire into Eastern and Western, in 395, Constan tinople became the capital of the Greek Empe rors, and continued to be till 1453, when it was taken by Mahomet II. and made the seat of the Turkish Empire.

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 pirates. " 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 SLAVE THATJE. 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 tional Gazette, merits the applause of the American public. -Vaf. Intel. 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 cat voraciously, until an apoplecC carries him to the tomb when Charles Philip, the amiable, moral, pious Count d'Artois vill peaceably suc ceed him. 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.

Every man must, in this villanous world, lay himself case, they will be nothing more than the canaille, i out to be suspected. A pyramid is mcas But the transactions in Turkey, and the prob-. ured by the shade which it throws over able war between the cross and the crescent, more humble edifices ; but, in the moral 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 lights envy to assail, and slander to des troy him. Suspicion is the prima facie evidence of virtue. Ignorant men value themselves in depreciating talent bad men delight in reducing the good to their level weak men remember of Sampson only the loss of his hair and all men, mel ancholy to relate, love scandal. But, if a man's conscience upbraid him not, there is pleasure in being scandalized. To find one nibbling at your reputation, when you have enough to spare to cover him and his whole tribe, is grateful ; to turn your back and pretend net to see a" thief, is i f i i. i oi your own accoru, uy one wnose aim 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- 706 Right Bass 707 William Wynn 708 Samuel M'Dowg 709 Thomas Ward 710 Thos.
