Frontiers cf Moldavia, Dec. CL The
Turks near the Pruth are accustomed to
lead their horses to drink, in that river
On the 6th, one of these horses broke
Joose and swam to the riht bank. 1 he
Turks demanded it !v : ns the Cossacks
did not immediately gne it up, thirty-six
or forty Turks swam on horseback over
the Pruth to fetch back the horse ; but
the Cossacks received a reinforcement,
surrounded the Turks, and conducted the
whole detachment to Kischenew. As the
Turks continue to increase in Moldavia,
the Russians likewise strengthen them
selves and draw together, particularly a
large force of infantry on the Pruth,
where a considerable park of artillery has
also arrived. The Turks go on in their
usual mode in Moldavia ; and as every
thing about Jassey is consumed, they now
begin to spread more in the country
They hardly speak of any thing but of
marching to Bessarabia and the Crimea.
They have contrived to get into their
hands all the gold and valuables that were
to be found in Moldavia. According to
their intentions, Moldavia and Wallachia
are to be governed in future by two Pa
chas. Above 7,000 Iletarists arc assem
bled in Bessarabia, and long impatiently
for the moment when, as they believe,
the affairs between the Porte and Russia
will be decided.

Lord Cochrane1 & entry into Lima. v Ex
tract of a letter from a British merchant
at Lima, dated July 19, 1821 :) Yester
day Lord Cochrane made his entry into
this city, and his reception was most flat
tering. A magnificent chariot, with four
cream-coloured horses, was sent to-Cho-rillos,
a port about two leagues from Li
ma, for his reception, accompanied by the
Cabildo and the chief officers of state.
His Lordship was received by the Arch
bishop, Bishops, and all the heads of the
Convents, and conducted to the Palace, a
xnidst the most enthusiastic shouts from
the people, of " Viva la Patria," " Viva
l'Amirante," Sec. A magnificent dinner
was prepared on this memorable occasion,
of which Gen. San Martin, Lord Coch
rane, and their staff, together with the
great ofheers of state, and all the heads
of departments, partook. Nothing can
exceed the enthusiasm of the Peruvians
at having their liberty- They naturally
anticipate great advantages from that in
tercourse with the rest of the world which
has been so long denied them, and ap
pear particularly anxious to cultivate a
friendly intercourse with England.

PHILADELPHIA, FEU. 22. The Ice Oil
the Rivkii Schuylkill had broken up,
and was in immense masses yesterday
and the day before above the Falls Bridge.
At length the water was dammed to such
a height, that a little after 4 o'clock last
afternoon it raised the Falls Bridge ftom
otTthe piers and abutments arid carried it
awav entire. It struck against the mill
just below the Falls and there a piece was
broken otTone end. The great body of
the bridge, the roof, &c. lc. was then
carried along on the bosom of the flood.
It arrived in this condition at 20 minutes
past 5, just above the Dam at Fair Mount.
There were many spectators and great
apprehension was felt for the safety of
the Dam and the Upper Ferry Bridge.
The apprehensions were quickly dispelled-
The mass of floating timber, bound
together by bolts and bars, which had
been the Falls bridge was no sooner pre
cipitated over the Dam than it was bro
ken into ten thousand pieces. It is be
lieved that the bridge thus destroyed cost

The breaking up of the rivers has oc
casioned very high freshets in most of
the northern states. The bridge from
Warren street to Bloomsburg at Trenton
(.Xcw Jersey) was swept away on Thurs
day night; and the Old Stone Bridge
leading from Greene street to Mill-Hill
fell in on Friday morning. This ancient
bridge is associated in our recollection
with some memorable events. It was the
passage over the bridge which in January
1777, Washington defended against Lou!
Cornwallis. It was on this bridge that
the triumphal ircli was erected, that the
hero passed under, at the close of the
war on his way to New-York when the
girls chauntcd songs to his praise, and
strewed it with flowers. But it fell while
the feu de joic was firing to celebrate the
return of the 90th anniversary. Mills
and mill-dams have been swept ofT in va
rious places. Both of the bridges at Mil
fold, and the bridges at Satigatuck and
Nor walk were swept away. The stage
broke through the bridge over Mill creek
at Durham, about 20 miles from New Ha
ven two passengers, a Frenchman and
an American, were drowned. Two ladies
crossing the bridge at White Plains, in a
sleigh, u the water at the time overflow
ing the bridge, jumped out, were carried
away by the current and drowned.' u At
Flizabethtown one of the bridges is gone,
and the mill dams much injured. At
Bridgetown, a bridge gone. The bridge
across B jundbrook creek is rendered im
passable. At New Brunswick several
sloops were diivcn on the Meadows : some
of the 'docks injured. "
" The Chain Bridge at Brandywine and
part of the mill adjoining the southern a

with a number of smail buildings on the
margin of the stream. Wc have heard
of one life being lost, and it is to be fear
ed there arc several more- J he extent
of damages is beyond conjecture. It is
rumoured that everv bridge on the Bran

been swept away; the dam at the Barley
mill is gone ; how many more, the height
of the water prevents our ascertaining.

TUKSDAY MOUNTNG, MARCH 19, 182 J.
We have this week commenced the publica
tion of the debate on Mr. Fisher's resolutions in
the House of Commons, during the late session
of the General Assembly, which we shall con
tinue until we get through with it. The public
will now have a full and fair view of the argu
ments which the East use to justify them in op
posing the wishes of the people, and in refusing
to submit to their decision a question which vi
tally affects their interests, and which they alone
should decide. The public will judge for them
selves whether the East have fairly met the
question, and directly replied to the arguments
and reasoning of the "West ; or whether they
have only "talked about it, and about it," and
endeavored by subterfuge and declamation, to
supply the lack of argument, and to overcome
such stubborn things as facts. We recommend
to such of our readers who do not keep a regu
lar file of this paper, to preserve at least the
numbers containing this debate : if nothing more,
they will be valuable to them for reference.
If any farther examples than those already
furnished, were necessary, to show the oppres
sive inequality of our present system of repre
sentation, one may be found in the vote on the
resolutions upon which the debate took place.
On that question 38 counties voted against the
resolutions, and 21 for them ; but the 21 counties
contain between 60 and 70,000 free souls more
than the 38 counties. So that in truth and in
fact, a large majority of the free people of North
Carolina, by their representatives, voted for cull
ing a Convention ; but the minority put their veto
to it. These things cannot long continue.
A British Review, the Eclectic, for August,
1821, contains a notice of a new work, entitled
"The Occupation of Amelia Island by MTIre
gor, &.c. Sketches of the Province of East-Florida;
and Anecdotes illustrative of the Habits
and Customs of the Seminole Indians. The
only anecdote quoted is concerning " Milly Fran
cis,' or " Emily, the hapless Indian maid ;" which
we have given below. It agrees, in its material
point, with the interesting account of the same
event related by a correspondent of ours in the
89th number of the Carolinian; but respecting
her conduct, when M'Krimmon or young 11,
after a knowledge of her misfortunes, sought
her out, and offered her his hand, the two ac
counts widely differ. Our correspondent states,
that she acknowledged that she loved her It ;
that she loved him from the first; but that, un
fortunate as she was, deprived of kindred, and
friends, and a country, she could not consent to
make him also unhappy, by connecting his fate
with hers : but according to the English narra
tive, she rejected the grateful M'Kimmon, by
! telling him that she was not influenced by :;,'
. i.i.t iii i
personal motive, anu mat sne wouiu iwe acne
the same for any other unfortunate person, in a
similar situation. It is, to be sure, of very little
importance which account is the correct one, as
either is highly honorable to her, and ensures for
her our wannest admiration : . but we leave it to
our readers to judge, whether the American ac
count does not place her before us in a much
more endearing and interesting light, by exhib
iting in her all the tenderness and feeling- of the
most civilized female, combined, at the same time,
with that loftiness of spirit, that keen and lasting
sense of injury, characteristic of the children of
the forest, which she so forcibly and so feeling
ly displayed, when she told her It, that "all
other white men, besides himself, she hated: it
was her pride and her duty to do so, because
lhe" vcrc thc nrdrers of her father." We
have no doubt that our correspondent's descrip
tion of Emily is correct; that she is every thing
which he has stated her to be ; and that, had she
been placed in like circumstances, she would
have been in no respect inferior to Pocuhonta.-.
In everything that constitutes nobleness of cha
racter ; in every quality which entitles its posses
sor to be loved and admired, she might notonlv
bear honorable comparison with thc preserver of
Capt. Smith, but even with others who imagine
they held a much more distinguished rank in the
scale of being than the daughter of an Indian
Kir.g, the unsophisticated child of nature, pos
sessed of all the virtues which adorn, without
the vices which. disgrace, civilization. For an
act like that of Emily Francis, in the virtuous
days cf (Ircccc and ltome, a statue would have
be?n decreed; for an act like that the memory
of Focahontas has been hallowed; and fur that
act history will do justice to tiie lofty spirited,
the tender hearted E;ii.y.
The following is thc account as given in the
Ecl'CUC Esvu.v .-
A straggler from the militia of C corgi?, nam
ed M'Krimmon, was captured by the Indians, and
was about to be sacrificed to Indian vengeance ;
tied to the stake, thc tomahawk raised to termi
nate his existence, r.o chance appeared of es
cape. At that moment Milly Francis, the daugh
ter of Hidlis Hadjo, placed herself between the
executioner and lY.s victim, and arrested his up
!Tud arm : then throwing herself at the feet of
her father,' she implored the life of hi.? prisoner.
It was granted, and he was liberated. To the
honur of M'Krimmon, it must bj added, that
some time after, learning that Milly Frances had
given herself up, with others of her untortunate !
race, in a state ot wretched destitution, to uie
commander at Fort Claiborne, he immediately
set forward to render her assistance, determined
to make her his wife, and thus in some sort re
pay the noble and disinterested generosity of
his saviour. Milly, upon learning the intention
of M'Krimmon, declared she was "not influenced
by any personal motive, that she should have act
ed in the same way for any other unfortunate
victim, and therefore declined Lis ofljr."
FROM THE " ATI OVAL INT SI. LI REN C KK .
On Monday, our readers rre appri.cd of Mr.
Randolph having moved and carried an ad
journment of the House, on thc. premature report
of Mr. Pinkncv's death. Thc event havincr now
happened, wc publish Mr. Randolph's observa
tions on the occasion.
Mr. Randolph rose, he said, to announce
to the House a fact, which, be hoped,
would put an end, at least for this day, to
all further iar or collision, here or else
where, among the members of this body.
Yes, for this one day, at least, said he, let
us say, as our first mother said to our first
" While yet wc live, scarce one short hour per
haps, Between us two let there be peace."
I rise to announce to the House the not
unlooked for death of a man who filled
the first place in the public estimation,
in thc first profession in that estimation,
in tins or in any other country. We have
been talking of General Jackson, and a
greater than him is, not here, but gone
forever I I allude, Sir, to the boast of
Maryland, aiul the pride of the United
States thc pride of all of us but par
ticularly the pride and ornament of the
profession of which you, Mr. Speaker,
are a member, and an eminent one. He
was a man with whom I lived, when a
member of this House, and a new one
too and ever since lie left it for the oth
er I speak it with pride in habits, not
merely negatively friendly, but of kind
ness and cordiality. The last time that I
saw him was on Saturday the last Sat
urday but one in the pride of life, and
full possession and vigor of all his facul
ties, in that lobby. lie is now gone to
his account, (for as the tree falls, so it
mur.t lie,) where we must all go where
I must very soon go, and by thc. same
road too, the course of nature and where
all of us, put off the evil day as long as
we may, must also soon go. For what is
the past but as a span, and which of us
can look forward to as many years as wc
have lived ? The last act of intercourse
between us wras an act, the recollection of
which I would not now be without, for all
the offices that all the men of the United
States have filkd, or ever shall fill. lie
had, indeed his faults foibles, I should
rather say ; and, Sir, who is without them ?
Let such, and such only, cast the first
stone. And these foibles, faults if you
will, which every body could see, because
every body is clear sighted in regard to
the faults and foibles of others he, I
have no doubt, would have been the first
to acknowledge, on a proper representa
tion of them. Every thing now is hidden
to us not, God forbid ! that utter dark
ness rests upon the grave, which, hideous
as it is, is lighted, cheered, and warmed
by fire from Heaven not the impious
fire fabled to be stolen from Heaven by
thc heathen, but by the spirit of the liv
ing God, whom we all profess to worship,
and whom I hope we shall spend the re
mainder of this clay in worshipping, not
with mouth-honor, but in our hearts ; in
spit it and truth that it may not be said
of us, also, " This people draweth nigh
unto me with their mouth and honoreth
me with their lips, but their heart is far
from me." Yes, it is just so. He is
gone. I will not say that our loss is ir
reparable ; because such a man as has ex
isted may exist again. There has been
a Homer; there has been a Shakspeare ;
there has been a Milton ; there has been
a Newton. There may then be another
Pinkney ; but there is now none. And
it was to announce this event I have risen.
I am, said Mr. R. almost inclined to be
lieve in presentiments. I have been all
along as well assured of the fatal termi
nation of that disease with which he was
affected, as I am now. And I have drag
ged my weary limbs before sunrise to the
door of his sick chamber, (for I would
not intrude upon the sacred sorrows of
his fimily,) almost every morning since
his illness. From the first I had almost
no hope. I move you, sir, that this House
do now adjourn.
