WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 3, 1831.
Jd" A town subscriber called at our Office a fe w daye
a co, and. requested that his paper should be discon
tinued, stating, aa. the cause, the annoying system of
borrowing" which prevails in his neighbourhood.
This is carried to such an extent, that he frequently
loses it altogether without having been permitted to
read it. Such a course is so entirely unreasonable,
and so subversive of our interests, that we hope it will
not be persisted in. 1 If these borrowing gentry will
only permit pur subscribers to retain their papers, we
will cheerfully accommodate such of them as shall
. rail at the Otficcon publication day.
In oqr last we stated that the Poles had taken Os-
trutenka .by assault, and made other advantageous
movements in their progress against Russia. We
ilceply.fregret the necessity which we are now under
pf, reversing this flattering representation. By the
Tucket ship Sylvanua Jenkins, London and Liverpool
jjappfri of the 8th and 9th ultimo have been received
at New York, the contents of which leave no doubt
that the unfortunate Poles have met a severe check.
Oar extract of last week mentioned the masterly
movement of the Polish Chief, to cyt off" the Russian
.supplier, anl to throw his forces within the lines of the
revolted provinces. All these, notwithstanding their
--boldness of design and bravery of execution, have
been rendered inoperative by .the interposition of a
vastly superior force. After 'a! sanguinary conflict

with more than twice their number, the patriots were
(impelled to abandon Ostralenka, after having lost
about 4000 men The Russian' loss is estimated
much higher, but asjhere is no comparison between
heir resources, the efiects of the contest are infinitely
lWorable to the latter. We confess that we had fears
o this result from the beginning. It is scarcely pos
sible that a' people so greatly inferior in numbers
should succeed, how great soever may be their devo
Uon.to the cause. We fear that the next accounts
- vill!be still more disastrous. It seems that the neu
trality of Prussia is merely nominal. ' Every thing

He certainly must have: known what was the ground
of the President's irritation; he must know what he
wished to communicate to Messrs. Branch, Ingham,

authorized to say, and how much he said of his own
authority and with a view to the bringing about a
more harmonious state of things in the Cabinet. His
declaration on the subject is explicit : General Jack

mut inevitably produce, sliould they ever be put in
practice, deserves the serious consideration of every
American. General Blair speaks as a man who
i l.ums the right of judging for himself; party pre

of national policy ; and although j his devotion to the
President seems to carry him a; little too far, good
and patriotick men will find a ready apology in the
debt of gratitude which the country owes to General

certainly anomalous in -politics, as well as in social in

Messrs. Ingham and Berrien should associate with
that lady. What then is the authority for this story?
There is none there inot the least shadow of foun
dation for it. It is true Mr. Berrien asserts- that
General Jackson said to him, that if a combination
had been proved to have been entered into by three
of his Cabinet officers to drive the fourth from society,
he would have required their resignations. Admit
this to be entirely accurate, and who will say it was
wrong f 10 force his Cabinet and their families to
associate whether they would or no, with Mrs. Ea
ton, or any one else,' is one thing; and to dismiss
them for entering, into plots and combinations de
structive of the harmony and good understanding
which should exist among his constitutional advisers,
is another and very different one.
Any one, we think, j who will peruse the corres
pondence we this day lay before the public, in a spirit
of fairness and candor, will be satisfied that no terms

The Coalition in Distress. After trying to put
down the President on the Veto the W. India trea
ty the Indian humbug, Tariff, &c. they have given
up all hopes of assailing him through his public and
official acts, arid hav: taken the desperate resolution
to make him a party in every quarrel at Washington.
But in this, as in every thins else, -his conduct
will do him honor, and the public will view him as a
peacemaker and a punisher of duellists and their aid
era and abettors. Will not the sober people of the
JAorth thank him tor it i We believe they will, while
they discard Mr. Clay. and his eulogists for such foul
deeds. Essex Democrat.
SONNET TO A MOSCXIETO.

, Moscheto, whither do yoa whiff
Your darkling flight ?
Why on your expedition sing1,
At dead of night i
Are you the Vampyre's child,
That flits so darkly wild,
In search of blood ; " '
Aud lights upon a sleeping Beauty's breast '
Boldly as on his own infernal nest,
To drain the vital flood i
You come, 'tis said, from fens and marshy iha'dts
And staguant pools, s
To feast, all summer ,'on oar slumbVIng maids,
And. sanguine fools.'
You kindred Insect ! we would ask a boon,
Or what most clearly is butjiut and right v
Spare those who rel'ih iiot your suction lunt.
But bleed and serenade each Tariffite.
We wish, indeed, you'd quick decamp
For Bluelight Town, or Dismal Swamp ;
Or, bring your rations with you,
And cease to eat us t
, Tariff and Duns we can't eschew I
They murder sleep, whate'er we do.
And then deplete us.

daughter of Mr. William Hollister.
THE CROPS ON THE ROANOKE. &c.

letter (dated 18th inst.) ofan esteemed and intelligent
friend residing in that fertile section of Country,
in the subject of which, our new relations of business
and commerce must give us a lively concern. Nor
" Our Corn crops, though almost smothered in rain for
the last 40 days, nevertheless present the finest prospect I
have ever witnessed. If the season continues favourable, I
should not be at all surprised, if in this section of country
the crop of corn should -double that of the past year. In
fact, there can be but liltle question, but that the export of
corn the ensuing winter trom thi3 river, will exceed the
export of last winter one hundred per cent, as the quantify
planted, exceeded that of the last year by one third or,
one half, in consequence of the strong appearance of a
general rupture in Europe at the time of plantine. and
