Head Establishment, No. 15, Prince's Street, Edinburgh, 3OGN MUIR, MANAGER. IT is well known to many individuals, and particularly to the Members ofthe Profession, of the Law, that great difficulties are frequently experienced in procuring . and in- vesting MONEY, in the purchase and sale of Amiinties, Feu- duties, Contingent and Reversionary rights ; and, in short, that before any money transition . can be properly ar- ranged, much unnecessary, and often fruitless enquiry and'In- vestigation rs frequently made, and a great expence of adver- tising, & c. is incurred. It is also well known that these diffi- culties most frequently aHse, not from the scarcity of Money or the want of those who are willing to take it on proper securi- ty, but that it almost entirely originates in the want of some concentrated medium, or channel through which the necessities of the borrower may be made known 16 those who have money to lend, but with less publicity and at less expence than tire ordinary recourse of an advertising newspaper affords; To remove these difficulties, an Establishment has been opened^ where an exact and regular Register is kept of all money trans- actions, under the various modifications in which they occur. The Register at present contains numerous insertions of money to be lent and wanted to borrow, on heritable and per- sonal seenrity, at different rates of interest, and in every va- riety of amount, to the extent of about three hundred thousand pounds; various notices of Banks, Water, Gas, Insurance, and Shipping Company Stock ; and, likewise, Annuities, Feu- duties, Ground Rents, and Reversionary Rights for sale; and various sums from £ 1000 to £\ 20,000 wanted on Redeem- able Annuity, iti several instances atlbrdiug a clear return ( after Insurance) of 6. 6\, and 7 percent. This institution ( the Hrst and only public one of the kind in Scotland) is, from its nature and simplicity, calculated to be of much advantage to the public in general, and in particular to the members of the law profession, and it has accordingly met with the most encouraging support. | t is a fundamental regulation in the Establishment that the province of the mem- bers of the profession in no respect to be interfered with. To make the Register more extensively useful, Agents are appointed at the principal towns in Scotland, to Whom du- plicates of the entries in the Register are sent periodically, and from whom duplicates of the entries in the subsidiary Regis ters kept at the respective agencies, are regularly received. JOHN GILL, Advocate, Agent at Aberdeen. To the EDITOR of the ABERDEEN CHRONICLE. SIH, I am a plain mat) sn a humble situation, and of all things nevar meddled with politics so as to give ofienc'*; and yet k so happens, that I am under the necessity of vindicating myself and. my boy before the public, from a charge of having wilfully attacked constituted Authorities, a charge that has given me gteat uneasiness. The . story is simply this ; -~ tny Boy is at the Grammar School, and I entertain hopes of being able to send him to College. lie has One book of Latin versions from En. glish themes, and another of translations from the Latin.— About a fortnight ago, a Gentleman in office called upon nie, and wishing to know what proficiency my son had made, lie wished to see his bot- ks, and f could observe that lie examined the English With mote attention than the Latin. I obsert& d him colour while reading, and On throwing down the book rather abruptly, be said, " ami so. Sir, von expect the Magistrates to interest themselves about Vouf son's education ?" I answered, that} provided he turned out. a g# od scholar, X hoped they would be khid enough to do any thing for him iu their power— that is>, as much a!> they would for any indifferent Burgess, not a relation or .< connection, " In that cise, replied he, he had better not write radical trash agiiinst them, or jrfsult them by shewing it." I was, - ifcwy - bMfevr/ totft ft'lml^- aStonitilr* ed, and bvg* gt? d to be informed of the cause of his displeasure; when, hastily ruhnlng over the leaves of the Book,, lie put his finger upon the following sentence : " The Magistrates hastened to the spectacle, and, hy their jourhei) and stay, the public Finances already in a very* so so state, \ were still farther misted." I own I was a little struck with a very obvious coincidence ; but said, that were my young man present, I had no doubt be could explain from what an- tient author the passage was translated, I suggested also, that no mention being made of a. Trust Deed, the probability was, that Aberdeen was not at all alluded to ; but in vain, for the Gentleman left me in anger, and I fear - ny boy will haVe but little chance of a Book at the. Visitation. Anxious to obtain information upon this subject," I applied to a learned friend to knoWj whether he could inform me from what author the ex- i; ej) tio. fi: ible passage had beejl taken ; and he, after proper investigation, told me, that the passage occurs in the Sod Epistle of the 9th Book of the Epistles of PJiny the Younger. He told me, that niy son's translation was not altogether cor- rect ; but advised me to send the original to you for publication, that the learned may judge for themselves— and here it is, word for word as I received it. Confluebant ad spectaculum omnes Magistratus, quortim adventu et mora, modica respublica, no vis suinptibus, attere- batur." Now, I submit to all the world, whether it is not a hard case, that my boy should be called a Radical, for a slight mis. translation of what this young gentleman Pliny wrote so long ago as the time of the Empeiot- Trajan ? At this rate, it may become dangerous to quote certain texts of Scripture ; but I look upon my son's vindication as complete, whom I have educated in as much reverence for Magistracy as an aspirant for Churc, h preferment professes for Majesty, and the Bench of Bishops— enjoining him, should he ever- be admitted to the Council Chamber, to conform with the established etiquette— to speak laigh— and look fey* d.

PA UTS Sept. ll.— When bigots and despots who traffic upon the narrow intellectual capital they acquired fifty years ago, and cannot, or will not, see all the subsequent changes and . vants of society, have unfortunately got the direction ofthe world, the past becomes the history of the future, and to de- velope th « ir . plains we have only to read, as they wouSd have < us march— backwards. By perusing, in this Hebrew fashion, it is easy to predict that the diplomatic jugglery of a'hundred years ago will be rf- en. icted by a set - of sol disant. Statesmen whose minds are of the same sera, with this special and im- portant novelty, that instead of directing their Maehiavelism against one another, or the Kings of any particular country, it will be levelled against their own subjects and the peopdeof all countries. The Congress is strictly and essentially a con- spiracy of crowded heads, leaguing their powers m the great cause of perpetuating the slavery of the many for the ' benefit of the few. Stripped of alt its regal and sanctimonious disguises, such is the naked object of this trconarchsial plot ; and while rulers publicly assemble for sweh iniqwtous piirposes", we must not be surprised if the governed form secret cabals to - counteract them. These are accordingly in full activity throughout Europe. The brotherhood of virtue, which the King of Prussia denounced as traitorous, after he had encouraged and availed himself of- it for the expulsion ofthe French, and violated his own pledge of a Constitution, exists and flourishes in spite, or rather in consequence of his fulminations 1 France is under- mined with innumerable trains of this inflammable matter, some of which occasionaily break forth in little premature ex- plosions. preparatory to the grand one which may be expected in the diiection of the Cordon Sanitaire ; in Italy, Carbonari Societies spring up even faster than hatchets and halters can put them down ; the snows of the North canuot check this moral fermentation ; the Emperor of Russia has issued a decree against secret bands assuming to be freemasons ; and among the most remarkable signs of the times, especially Tiow that, armies are the pivots of revolution, it may be noted that a plot has be.' ii discovered in one of the Piussian regiments for the purpose of procuring a Constitution, the participators iu which have been degraded aud dispersed into other battalions, where they will probably disseminate their audacious doctrines. If pious titles and high- sounding hypocrisy could putthem down, these associations of t he oppressed against the oppressors would stand little chance, for they are opposed to the Holy Alliance, the Father of the Church, his Most Christian Majesty, his Most Apostolical Majesty, the English defender of the Faith, the Spanish Army ofthe Faith, and the bigots of all countries; but the enlightened politician, who is aware that iu the pre- sent age people look to sense more than sound, to religious deeds rather than professions, and that nothing can permanently control public opinion, will not expect any enduring tranquil- lity in Europe until institutions are placed more upon a par with the existing state of knowledge, and the common people, whose lives and property are held to be at the disposal ofthe Constitution, are allowed to have some share in its formation. itlvr 11- Chron.

The Directors of the London Missionary Society have lately more benevolence, even in our own favoured ' Country, than those of two of these speakers.

IABILITY OF SEAMEN. George Fowler, a seaman, was on Thursdaybrought before the Lord Mayor, upon a warrant, for violation of tin agreement made with tlie master of a merchantman called the Britannia, trading to Jamaica, which viola- tion subjected him to very heavy penalties by the provi- sions of a statute of his late Majesty. The Captain of the Britannia stated, that the defen- dant had some time ago entered into a regular engage- ment with him to act as seaman in a voyage to Jamaica and home. Witness had taken with him a crew just ade- quate to the labours of the voyage, aud expected that his men would adhere to their engagements, the conse- quences of departing from which at such a distance from England as the Colonics were, might be attended with the most serious mischief to the owners. Upon landing at Jamaica, however, the witness found that he had the disadvantage of a desertion by three of his men to con- tend with, and that the defendant was one of those who had left itini in the almost insurmountable extremity.— Ashe was in the habit of going voyages to the West Indies, he was determined to do all he could to prevent a repetition of such acts as had so greatlv inconvenienced him, and he accordingly applied to the Lord Mayor for a warrant to apprehend the defendant, Upon the 37th of Geo. III. cap. 73. entitled, " An act to prevent the desertion of seamen from British merchants' ships trad- ing to the British Colonies in the West Indies." The act states, that any seaman who shall desert from his ship during his voyage wit or homewards, shall, over and above all other existing penalties and forfeitures, for- feit all wages due to him by the vessel from which he shall desert 4 that one- third of the forfeiture shall go to Greenwich Hospital, one third to the Merchant Sea- men's Fund, and one- third to the informer; and if the wages due under such circumstances be under the sum ol £ 20 the same shall be recoverable before one magistrate. The defendant said, the cause of his desertion was an insult which he had received on board. He, however, thought fit to request, that in consideration ofhis wife and children, he miolit be forgiven, and to declare that he should never subject any other person who should en- gage him for a voyage to the inconvenience complained of. The complainant said, his object was to put an end to a practice the most mischievous, and not to punish an individual who might think, from the frequency of the practice, that it was a venial offence; and added, that in • consideration of the claims of a wife and children upon his compassion, he should forego die present charge. The Lord Mavor expressed his readiness, upon aJ!** c- casionsto put in effect, against any offender of die kind, the very salutary statute of the 37th Geo. III. NAVIGATION OF THE NORTH ATLANTIC. The following will be found important to masters of vessels in the Newfoundland, Quebec, aud British America trades :— Extract from a Letter from Dartmouth, dated September 2, addressed to the Committee of Lloyd's. " On peVusing the public prints a day or two since, my attention was particularly attracted to an account ofthe loss of the brig Spence Michael Wilson, master, at St. Short's, in the Island of Newfoundland, on the 16 th of July last; and from the late melancholy loss ofhis Majesty's brig Drake, at the same place. I am induced tooiier a few observations on the reasons why those losses have so frequently occurred at that place within a few years, and without the survivors being able to account for them, and ( also to point 0ut the means of avoid- ing them in future, if those means which are in the possession of ail Commanders of vessels are duly attended to. Being a native of the Island, having been nearly twenty years engaged in its tishery, and the greatest part of that time having been spent in close attention to its duties, will, I trust, entitle my observations to some consideration, particularly when I state, that they are the result of information derived from the oldest and most experienced boat- masters who have been employed in fishing from the centre of the eastern to the western coast of the Island, and more particularly at Cape St. Mary's. Those men, though . unlearned, 1 have found entitled to considera- tion ; and their practice has proved their conclusions to have been correct. " It is well understood 1> y those boat- masters, that there is in genera! a strong current setting in from the eastward, along the western coast, which, after passing Cape Pine, tends more towards St. Mary's and Placentia Bays. This current in my opinion is sensibly felt, at least twenty leagues SW. of Cape Pine, and becomes more rapid as you approach the land, its velocity increasing as the wind favours it, but at all times of sufficient magnitude to endanger the safety of any ship approach- ing from the south and west in foggy weather, and being ig- norant of its existence. In order to avoid the danger arising from this current, the fishermen, in foggy weather, and when returning from the western coast to their homes on the eastern coast, invariably use the lead, depending more on their depth of water than their compass, and never approaching nearer the land than 35 fathoms of water. The ground being more of an inclined plane 011 the west coast than on the east, you will find that depth of water a considerable distance from the land ; in fact, sufficient to insure the safety of any ship passing the coast. On passing to the eastward of Cape Race, the ground becomes more broken, and the depth of water increases so very- fast, that in your course from Cape St. Mary s to avoid Cape Race, you will, when to the eastward of it, find yourself in 50 fathoms, and when advanced a very short distance farther, in 60 and 70 fathoms of water ; consequently, you are then clear of any land, and at liberty to pursue your course to the east- ward, or run along the eastern coast,- as circumstances may re- quire. I do not perceive that any advantage would arise by Government establishing a post at St. Shott's to fire fog guns, as we have at tunes known vessels lost in the neighbour hood of St. John's, where that practice is invariably followed. A due attention to the lead and line should be enforced ; for it- men will not take care of themselves, it is hard to expect others to do so for them." BOXING VERSUS DUELLING. An unexpected and severe boxing match took place on Old Oak Common, arising out of a due! challenge, when both felt bound in honour to appear. The parties, Mr. R— t— d, a medical student, and Mr. C— r— m, a clothier. The former challenged, and thev met armed, in consequence ofa dispute about a mastiff dog. One of the seconds proposed an appeal to the Jlst rather than a bullet, and there being no disparagement in weight, Chester, plaved Lis finger was so rapid that old Snetzler, the organ- builder, rati about the church, exclaiming, " he run Over de KOV like one cat ; lie will not give my pipe's time to speak." During Mr. Wainwridit's per- formance, I) r. Miller, the friend of Herschell, inquired of him what chance he had of following him ? " 1 dot! t know," sait! Hersehell, " but I am sure fingers will not do." When it came to his turn, Herschell, ascended the organ loft and produced so uncommon a richness, such a volume of slow harmony, as astonished all present ; and after this extemporaneous effusion he finished with the old hundredth psalm, which he played better than his opponent. " Ave, aye," cries old Snetzler, " ' tish is very goot, very goot inteet ; I will lttftis man, he gives my pipes room for to speak." Herschell being asked bv what means hevprodueed so astonishing an effect, replied, " I told you fingers would not do ;" and pro-, ducitig two pieces of lead from his waistcoat pocket, said, " one of these I laid on the lowest key ofthe organ, and the other upon the octave above ; and thus, by accom- modating the harmony, I produced the effect of four hands instead of two." This superiority of skill obtained Herschell the situation ; but he had other and higher objects in view, to suffer him long to retain it. FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. FROM FRENCH PAPERS. PARIS, Sept. 7.— The German papers announce that the Emperor Alexander set out for Warsaw the 16th of August. It is stated that the Porte has been invited to send a Plenipotentiary to the Congress— butthat nower refused. The latest news from Constantinople announced the birth of a third son to the Sultan. The French jxipers are still occupied with the trials for the late conspiracy. In that at Poitiers the advo- cate appointed bv the " Court to plead for Mr. Herton, against his own declared wishes, now refuses to defend him. General Berton himself read to the Court a written defence, which occupied nearly two hours. The trial is not vet concluded. VIENNA, Aug. 27-— What is certain is, that great activity prevails iu the Aulic Chancellory ; that Gentz, the soul and the torch of all the former Congresses, the intimate confident of Prince Metternicb, labours dav and night. Since the month of . July, long diplomatic con- ferences have repeatedly taken place at the hotel of the Prince Chancellor, Count Golowkin ; the ordinary Russian Ambassador icing absent, Count Tatischeff supplies his place. ' Hie Marquis de Caraman attends tire conferences ; am! in the absence of Lord Stewart, Mr. Gordon, the British Change des Affaires, has been called to them. The Prussian Minister, Baron de Krusimark, having died, the Prince of Ilafsfield lias ar- rived for the conference oftlve 17th of July. All the preparatory measures for opening the ministerial confe- rences which are to lie held at Vienna are already adopt- ed. Count de Tatischeff has declared that he is furnish- ed with sufficient pawers, and Mr. Gordon has intimat- ed that his Court will act in concert with that of Vienna. The Prince of Hatsfield has just signified that the King his master intends to proceed directly from Berlin to Verona, in the month of September. It is reported that our Minister of Finance, Count Stadion, intends to contract for a considerable loan. MADRID, AUJ. 29.— Tranquillity continues to pre- vail here. The new Ministry efijovs great esteem, though some evil minded persons already complain of its apathy. Vadillo, the new Minister of the Colonics, has just arrived, and immediately entered on his office. The Minister of War and Grace and Justice, seems to act frankly, in agreement with public opinion. Yet 3 cer- tain reserve and silent stupor is observed, which seems the precursor of great events, amidst the obstacles which the new Ministry have to surmount. Besides the mili- tary measures, great praise is given to those of police, and the banishment of several ecclesiastics ofthe highest rank. It is thought the Government will not stop here, being resolved not only to combat to the utmost the ene- mies of the new system, but still further to consolidate it. Tlie Espectndor and other Journals state, that the Minister of Marine has given orders to fit out several ships of war, to cruise from the Straits of Gibraltar to Cape de Cruz on one side, and on the other from Cape Finisterreto Passages. The measures of the Minister of Finance do not give so much satisfaction. Ill fact, unless a stable and solid system is established, and means found to raise the taxes regularly, every thing will be embarrassed. It is not only the revolted provinces, which have long since ceas- ed to contribute to the public treasury, but almost all tiie others show a backwardness in this respect, which threatens to lead the Government to its total ruin. Preparations are making here to receive the Infanta of Portugal, who will arrive 011 Sunday. This morning the Commander of the Halberdiers drew out this corps, consisting of above 120 individuals, and made 6- l< quit the ranks, whom he ordered to lay aside their uniform and arms, and to present themselves to the Captain- General, where they would receive their passports, to repair to the pltices which would be signi- fied to them, and where they may settle as retired from the service. The guard of the King, as our readers know, was chiefly composed of Nobles, and did duty in the apartments of the Boval Family. Bv this means the guard of the King is confided wholly to the troops of the line and the National Militia; so that all the pomp ofthe Guards, and the splendour which surround the Palace, have vanished. CONSTANTINOPLE, Aug. 10.— Lord Strangford had a conference a week ago with the Rets Effendi, with a view to induce the Porte— 1st, To acquaint Russia, bv a Note, with the nomination ofthe Hospodars.— 2d, To send a Negotiator to Kminiec, to treat, as Russia desired, with M. de Tatischeff. The Porte refused, and it is feared that it will not be brought to consent. Yet some hope that fanaticism and pride will yield to a spirit of conciliation. Co\ TSTA%' rtMGl? LE, Aug. 10.— Perfect tranquillity stiil prevails here. We have nothing new from the Morea. The Egyptian flotilla having joined the Tur- kish fleet, the latter sailed for the Motet ou the 23d July. Lord Strangford had a conference a week ago with the Reis Effendi, with a view to induce the Porte— 1st, to acquaint Russia, bv a note, with the nomina- tion of the Ilospodars— 2d, to send a negOciator to Kaminee, to treat, as Russia desired, with M. de Tatis- cheff. The Porte refused, and it is feared that it will will not be brought to consent ; yet some hope that fa- naticism and pride will yield to a spirit of conciliation. Most of the Genoese vessels which were bound for the Black Sea have returned in ballast to the Mediter- ranean. Two of them, having received their papers from Odessa, hoisted the Russian flag. Genoese ships that arc here with Russian papers will not meet witli any difficulties. The number of rioters and mutineers who were exe- cuted, imprisoned, or banished during the disturbances in July, is estimated at between 4 and 5000. It was made known, that if the five Ortas did not expel from among them the author of these terrible disorders, the Sultan would make use of the power given him by the Sultan Soliman, and disband those regiments. The Greek Patriarch died 011 the 8th of this month, after a long and painful disease ( dropsy). His obsequies were performed to- day with much order and dignity ; many thousands ( Greeks) followed to the tomb. Ac- cording to ancient custom the body had been previously exposed 011 the Patriarchal throne in the cathedral ; and more than 8000 persons had been there to kiss the hands and feet of the Chief of their church. On the evening of the same day the Grant! Seignor permitted the choice of a successor to be proceeded in. At tlie same, six Greek Bishops were set at liberty, who had been detain- ed as hostages for snipe months in the Seraglio. The Porte has informed tlie Synod that, if'its choice fall on any one of these Bishops, it will be approved of with- out difficulty, provided tlie candidate possesses the five following qualities— experience, prudence, skilfulness, learning, and fidelity to the Government. The names of sixty- three Bisho[ is were afterwards read in the Synod, of whom three were designed as can- didates, uniting the necessary qualities. The Repre- sentatives of the Greeks at Constantinople, amounting to 600 voters, proceeded then to the election, and their choice fell 011 one of tlie six Bishops, viz. tlie Bishop of CHalcedonin, who was formerly Bishop of Smyrna. The Synod confirmed his election immediately, which it is hoped will meet the approbation of the Sultan, and that | to- morrow the new Patriarch will be clothed with the Caftan. Some days before his death, the Patriarch wrote an affecting letter to the Sultan, in which he recommended the Greeks to his favour. In particular he requested the abolition of a heavy tax, which the Greeks of the capital, as well as the Jews and Armenians, were oblig- ed to pay every month to the arsenal. The Grand Seignor received this letter very graciously, and even before the death of the Patriarch the tax was abolished by a Firman. . ZANTE, Aug. 2.— The English nt present hold out a helping hand to the Greeks ; and since the departure of Sir Thomas Maithind, it lias been observed that the rigorous measures have ceased with his presence. At Zante, an asylum lias been granted to the family of Papa- Dtamanto- Pouios, Member of the Senate of Co- rinth, and to several other persons, who fled from the Continent at the approach ofthe Infidels. Sir Frederick Adam, Governor of Corfu, ad interim, who is reamed to a divorced Greek ladv, gives assistance to the unfor- tunate. Thus there is a change of policy on this side ; but unless God assist tlie ( Ire ks it is feared that the ap- proaching Congress will have to deliberate only on ruins and tombs. , I. V L.

Referring to these, the gentlemen say, " The half was not told us. The people here exhibit as liberal and pleasing a proof of being * turned frotn darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God,' as can he conceived. A nation of pilferers has become trust- worthy. A people formerly universally addicted to lasciviousness have become modest'and virtuous in the highest degree. Those who, a few years ago, despised all forms of religion, except their own horrid superstitions, have universally declared their approbation of Christianity— study diligently those parts of Christian Scriptures which have been translated for them— ask earnestly for more, and appear conscientiously to regulate themselves by those sacred oracles, under the direction of their kind teachers, whose self- denying zeal and perseverance have been almost as remarkable as the success with which God has been pleased to honour them. " We are gratified in observing, almost every where, many marks of improvement. Better houses and chapels having been built ; rapid improvement in reading and writing ; Eu- ropean dresses partially superseding the Taheitan ; the chiefs ingeniously and diligently building their own boats in the Eu- ropean form, European tools ; many cultivating tobacco and sugar, and nearly all manufacturing cocoa- nut oil. Among other marks of improvement we must mention a road, which is in'ellded to go round the island. *' his is formed bv persons who are punished, according to the new laws, for their crimes.

BRUSSEL S, Sept. 9.— A report is spread nt Frank- fort, that a courier has brought the news of the march of a part of ^ be* Austrian troops which occupy Italy, and which are to pass through the south of France, to rein- force the Sanitary Cordon. This news has caused a fall in the funds. A letter from Madrid, of the 26th in theevening, says, that on the same dav there bad been at the Palace a consultation of the principal physicians, the result of which gives but little hope of saving the young and in- teresting Queen of Spain. The Princess of Saxony is the third wife of Ferdinand VII. the first was a Princess of Naples ; the second a Princess of Portugal ; and the third is she who now shares a throne enveloped in storms and dangers. ST. PETERSBUHGH, Aug. 21 The closing of the Freemasons' Lodges excites extraordinary sensation here, and is the subject of general conversation. BERLIN, Aug. 31.— The State Gazette says that the Kings of Naples and Sardinia are also expected to be present at the Congress at Verona, where preparations are making for the reception of a great coucourse of strangers. SEMLIN, Aug. 24.— Letters from Bitoglia, Veloso, and Berlepi, dated August 9th, not only confirm the intelligence of the defeat of Chottrschid Pacha, near Larissa, on the 20th of July, but also inform us that the first check was followed by another equally severe. Threatened by tlie Divan, he assembled all his re- serves, and led them to the theatre of his defeat. But the Greeks again intercepted hjmr and 011 August 1st he lost as many lives as 011 July 20th. It is said he is among the prisoners. ^ GREECE. FRANKFORT, September 2.— Scio contained about 120,000 individuals. By the census lately made by the the Pacha, there remains iu tlie whole island only about 900 persons, and the contagion threatens to carry them all off. On the 23d July, there remained ] .50 persons in the Consulate of France, but twenty of them died daily. The dead were no longer buried in the city, but thrown pell- mell into a ruined Greek church, near the French Consulate. Almost the whole population of tlie mastic villages lias emigrated ; iu some there remain oniv a lew old women. A firman of the Sultan has been received at S; io, which formally declares that all the Greeks who are at Scio, and those who shall return thither, are not only free, but are f'uHy authorised to take immediate possession of their lands and property. Alas! Scio will soon be only a sepulchre, and in this field of death the Imperial bounty will hardly find a few wretches to whom it can lend a supporting hand. The epidemic seems daily to become more malignant. Ten piastres must lie ( Mid for removing a dead bodv ; for the man who consents to perform this office is generally seized with the disorder the following day. The Pacha himself is at present ilL The crop of tnastic, corn, and grapes was never more abundant. It has been necessary to send 600 Greeks from Chesme to labour in these deserted fields, where nature has been as liberal aud bountiful as man lias been barbarous. The Egyptian and Barbary flotilla has captured eleven small Greek vessels, and brought thctn into the port of Scio. The Captains only have been put to death ; the crews are prisoners, and have been put in irons. A part of the Greeks of Athens have fled to Salamis and Zea ; the others have shut themselves up in the citadel. O11 the 18th of July it was said that the Turks were onlv four leagues from Athens. SEPT. 3.— LeSpectatcur Oriental gives the follow- ing intelligence concerning Greece* :— When the Ottoman fleet put to sea, it was accofnpa- nied bv forty transports, and had nearly 40,000 inen on board of the whole one hundred and forty vessels of which it consisted. It is probable that it is destine- d for the Peloponnessus. Towards the end of June f the following was tin; state ofthe Peloponnessus :— There were in the country between 30,000 and 40,000 men under arms, but they were in a very undisciplined state, of which we will give an example. At Argos there were 10,000 troops. The Supreme Senate re- solved to send an expedition to F. pirtts, and all the Greeks refused unanimously to march. All the shops and cofice- houses, except that called foreigners, were or- dered to be shut. At the end of a fortnight Prince Maurocordato succeeded iu persuading the Greeks to obey. He sent them to Patras, and from that neighbourhood they were transported by sea to Misso- longo, the head- quarters. Thev marched from thence to succour the Snliots, who had revolted, and against whom Chourschid Pacha was advancing. About 6000 Suliots joined Prince Maurocordato. The first engagement was animated, but not at all de- cisive. The Greeks were not forced to repass into the Peninsula, because th= y found a great ileal of determi- nation among the Suliots, whose women rivalled the men in valour; on the other hand, independent of the troops commanded by Chourschid, the Turks are mas- ters of Suli, a very strong place, which Ali Pacha could not take till after a siege of four years. It is not above a month since the Senate resolved in in its wisdom to send a Greek Captain, who had served in the Italian armies, to Odysseus, to whom the Senate had confided the passage of Thermopylae, that he might aid the Chief with his counsel. Arrived at Ther- mopylae, he presented himself to Odysseus, and explain- ed the object of his mission. Odysseus gave him no other answer ttian to blow Ins brains out with a pistol. Modou,, a strong place, and well provided, is tlefended by 403 Turks, 50 of whom are cavalry. There are 500 Greeks, commanded by General Auoustora, before this place. They have never prevented'the Turks from sorties and returning with booty, because when they make a sortie the Greeks never wait for them, but take to the fields. We oive the following as authentic :— Two months and a half ago, the 50 cavalry having made a sortie, went rather too far, and entered the inclosures round a house to repose themselves. In this situation they found themselves intercepted by a strong party of Greeks, whom they bad hot perceived, and who had been hid by ; a plantation of olive trees. Eleven foreigners, whom their unlucky stars had conducted amongst the Greeks, encouraged them to profit by this occasion to carry off the 50 cavalry ; lint as soon as these latter disappeared, the Greeks took to flight, and the eleven foreigners, t left to themselves, abandoned, where also obliged to I fi- v' i Patras, a strong place, is defended by 3000 Turks, ; About 5000 Greeks, commanded bv General Colco- ; troni, are near tins city, of which the harbour is blacktt- 1 ded bv eisjdit vessels. The citadel is strong and well ' provisioned. Coron is defended by two or three hundred Turi. s, • and is also well provided. ' Ihe number of Greeks be- fore this place varies from day to dav ; but when the Turks make a sortie, the Greeks retreat, j At Tripohzza there are about 800 Mussel in an slaves, ; men and women. Among them are some rich individ- ! tials to whom the Senate allows a piastre a dav, 111 liie , hope of being reimbursed at some future time. The 1 Greeks employ the other slaves to burn the dead bodies, | of which some are vet left. Will it be believed ?— I after the dreadful fate which overtook this city 011 ; bei ng taken, it now contains more than 30,000 Greeks. Navafin is in the power of the Greeks, who amount ! there to alput 10,000. There are some bastions tor I wards the harbour, and a citadel which commands it, tiie ; the work of the Venetians. There are about .30 piqfes S of cannon, 18, 24, and 36 , pounders, but the grcat- ! est part of them are in a bad condition. A Turkish ! fleet of 63 vessel* appeared before Navarin about three . months ago, and appeared as if it would enter , tl* e liar- 1 bour. The Greeks terrified were immediately ready tor | run away. Some foreign ofltcers placed themselves at the gates with swords and pistols iu their hands to pre- vent the Greeks from leaving tlie place. The fleet re- maiuedtwo days before the to. vp, arid their going away allowed the terror of the Greeks to ^ nljside. In the middle of the harbour of Navarin, there is a small island about 60 puces long and 3<> wide.—* There is the bones of 700 Mahometans remain ever since this town surrendered last vear by capitulation— an eternal monument of horror and infamy. At five or six leagues from Tripolizza there is a manufactory of powder, but it is said that the jtowdtT is not of a srood quality. I11 the same town also they cast cannon, which carry balls of two to three pounds. It is intended at present to form a guard of a hun- dred to a hundred and fifty horse, for the Senate The horsemen receive eighty piastres per month, an< l must equip themselves ; but in the Morea the horses are' too small to be employed in war. The country is* however, well provided with cattle, such as oxen and goats. There is in fact, no discipline but in the PhiMielle- man corps composed at present of aixiut 200 u « en, and in the regiment of 400 men, commanded by the Greek Tarda, who has served in Italy. Ifthe Ttirksseriously attack the Pelojwinessus ; if thev send an armv of from 20,000 to 25,000 chosen men ; if a corps of Mttsselmeii after forcing the passage of Thermopylae, traversing Livadia, attacks Corinth, and compels the Greeks to send a part of their forces to that point ; and if the disposable troops at Kpirus move ti> Patras, and act on tlie offensive, and the squadron ef- fects at Modon the debarkation of 20,000 men, we re- peat what we have before s lid, that wc believe the Pe- ninsula could not hold out one month. NOT KS BV THE KlJlTOtl Oi Til* MIS UTtftTa. Our readers are informed that the S;> ect ite « r Oriental is putw llsheil at Smyrna, under the inspection of the M* gistrwa-# and is not a pure and authentic source of news from Greece. It is, however less bitter against the unfortunate Greeks than a certain official journal of Germany : it sometimes gives irfi a glimpse of facts which make us doubt of the ultimate success ofthe oppressors of Greece, and it gives ciretimstawti: il de tails which appear gathered on the spot. Prom this cir- cumstance it is our duty to conmmnicate these extracts f- roi. a this journal to our readers, though they are contrary to our wishes. f We must request our readers to observe this date. Tli « state of things . has changed considerably since then. The capture of Napoli de ltoitiani, coufirmed by the SpectateiYr, has given the Peloponnesians a military point of smpport very important, and which corresponds with the citadel of Ctfrinth. naturally very strong. Master of these two positions, an armj might maintain itself for a long time in the ittbinus « yf Co- rinth. But a vigorous resistance on the part of the Greeks in the mountains of Thessaly, Etolla, ami Phocida, would evetj prevent the Turks frotn approaching » ! ie entrv to die Pelopon- nesus. Neither the reported victories of ' Chmirschid Pacha, nor of the Greeks being confirmed, seem to prove that they are still fighting in small detachments, and with balanced suc- cess, in tliese mountainous countries, so favourable to an army like that of the Greeks, composed of riflemen and purtiaans In such a situation courage may dispense with discijiline. \ V « may hope, therefore, 10 see the MahorwetiHi army stopped lie- fore it can reach Livadia. The warlike Albanians, however, keep the passes ot ihe mountains in their hands ; if more en- lightened it would seise this moment to en « ure its own inde- pendence, in taking part with the Greeks; but corrupted aiii greedy of gold, the Albanians, will probably endeav.- mr tr>' betray both the Turks and the Greeks to gain subsidies and booty. If the Albanians continue the system which they have hitherto pursued, the campaign will bu tejiou* and slcr. ly brought to a conclusion. AMERICA, Jjj- c. The Camden Packet has arrived, bringing very late news from the Spanish Main. The dates from St. Thomas' are to the 9th ult. By the present conveyance, the agents ofthe independent government of New Co- lumbia have received the official account ofthe capture ! of Quito, and the subsequent proceedings of the Patriots, who have repulsed the Rovalistsiu several engagements J ' The leading particulars of the capture of Quito have al- ready been made public through other channels. The be st understanding subsisted between the rroycrn- ments of New Columbia, Chili, and Peru, and it was tile determination of each to assist the cause of libcrtr bv all possible means, whether in the west or north of South America. Should General Bolivar succeed earliest in expelling the remainder of the Royalists, lie will immedi- ately co- operate with the Chilian forces to obtain ti. e same objects in the South. A Decree has been published to prohibit the importa- tion of foreign brandies into the islands of Madeira and Porto Santo, regulating the duties to be paid 011 national brandies. In the Sitting of the Cortes, on the 23d ult. there was a long and animated debate on the affairs ofMonta ^ nleo. ' The precise points under discussion were. 1. Whether an Army of Occupation should evacuate, wholly or in part, Monte Video? 2. Whether the Act of Union oV July St, 1851, should lie recognised as valid and legal, and if it was proper for the Por- tuguese nation to accept of this Union 011 the twenty- one con- ditions proposed in that Act. and accepted hy Baron do La- u- tnua 011 the 2d of August of that year ? With respect to the first, it was decided that the Go- vernment should remove from Monte Video the division of Royal Volunteers and the Staff ofthe Army, dispos- ing of those troops as might be most advantageous ami honourable for the public service. No decision, was adopted upon the second, and furtiii- r consideration of it • being adjourned. The following official explanation of the reason whv the sailing of the expedition had been de laved had been given bv Govern nerit, by superior orders :—" It is made known that every thing relating to the expedition and in the department of Government, is ready, as well tiie ships of war as the transports, troops, & ci and that the motive that has hitherto impeded the Sailing of the'squa- dron has been the non- compliance on the part of the contractors, notwithstanding the urgent remonstrances of the Ministers, publicly posted tip in the arsenal, with that part of the engagements they took upon themselves, and as stipulated in their contract, in due time. This circumstance, notwithstanding all the activity displayed, will prevent the squadron from sailing till the beginning of next week."— August 28. From the LONDON GAZETTE, Sept. 10.

The new Ministerial arrangements were finally deter- mined vesterdav. Mr. Canning has accepted the Seals for the Foreign Office. We believe, too, we can state that Mr. Canning went to the India- house yesterday afternoon, upon the arrangements being completed, to communicate the fact personally to the Directors. We farther understand, that a Privy Council will be held on .' Monday at Carlton Palace, for the purpose of swearing " Mr. Canning into office— Courier of Saturday. We have authority to assert positively, that Mr. Canning is appointed to succeed the late Lord London- derry at the Foreign Office. Mr. Canning attended yesterday at the India House, for the purpose, as it was understood, of tendering liis resignation of the ap- pointment of Governor General of India.— Sun. The new Ministerial arrangements are not yet com- pleted, notwithstanding Mr. Canning is arrived. What- ever The Courier may sav, an unexpected demur has arisen in a certain quarter, which occasioned an inter- change of messengers during the whole of yesterday, and so much secrecy was observed on the occasion, that the Messengers made their entrances and their exits from the private door in the Park. His Majesty had proposed to cleave town this day, but in consequence of these little occurrences, it is now thought his journey will be pro- tracted until next week, when he goes to his Cottage.— Morn. Chron. Saturday, Sept. 14. It is now understood that Lieutenant- General Lord Combermere, G. C. B. is appointed to succeed the late Sir S. Auchmuty, as Commander of the Forces in Ire- land. Major- General Sir Edward Barnes, K. C. B. is ap- pointed Colonel of the 87th ( Highland) or Ross- shire Buffi, in the room of Sir Samuel Anchmuty, deceased. The Underwriters at Lloyd's, in consequence of heavy losses, have raised their premiums £ l per cent, on in- surances to India and New South Wales. ECCLESIASTICAL PROMOTIONS.— An Irish Paper says, " The following promotions are spoken of in the highest circles, as those likely to take place :— The Bishop of Down to be translated to Clogher ; the Dean of St. Patrick's to be the new Bishop ; the Hon. and Ilev. Mr. Pomerov to be Dean of St. Patrick's. We learn from a gentleman who was present at the review bv the Emperor Alexander at Moscow, that above 80 petitions were then presented to him by officers and soldiers, who stepped out of the ranks, calling on liim to commence hostilities against the Turks. A priest of consideration had, at the same time, loudly denounc- ed Alexander for his insensibility to the sufferings of his fellow religionists, and that in very unpalatable language. Aforre. Chron. The Kent Herald gives the following account ofthe attempt to assasinate Captain Owen :—" On Thursday 28th tilt. Captain Owen, of the Bellerophon, convict bulk, at Sheerness, received a severe stab in the left side from a convict, whom he was reprimanding for his bad behaviour. The convict had been received on board only on the preceding Monday, and had continually evinced symptoms of insubordination ; on the day above mentioned he was sent on shore to work, but would not, and was of course sent on board again, and whilst re- ceiving a reprimand from Captain Owen he drew his hand from his bosom, where he had kept it all the time, at a moment when Captain Owen turned his head to look at some object, and gave him a back- handed blow with a sharp pointed knife, which passed between his ribs and touched the lungs. Symptoms of convalescence appeared on Friday and Saturday last, but the life of the worthy Captain is now despaired of, it being feared that a mortification has taken place. Mr. Capper arriv- ed on board on Saturday, and gave orders for the future disposing of the miscreant, till the pleasure of the Se- cretary for the Home Department is known. AFFRAY AT CHIPPENHAM. T"> V0 MEN KILLED 1 T1IIKTY- ONE MEN, WOMEN, AND CHILDREN, WOUNDED ! Scenes equal in atrocity to the one wc are about to describe may have taken place during the late commo- tions in Ireland, but we believe it to be nearly unparal- leled in English record. At the last Kington- Langley revel, which took place several weeks ago, some offence, it appears, was taken by a few individuals of Langlev, at the conduct of some young men of Chippenham ; since which time a desire for revenue has been brooding, and during many a Sa- turday night there has been slight skirmishes at Chippen- ham between a few of the parties. It was resolved, however, by the Langley people, that the grand attempt should be made on Saturday evening last, when a most barbarous and blood thirsty conflict took place. For this purpose, it is supjiosed that thirty or forty men must have assembled during the evening— many it is con- jectured, even hired for the occasion ! At about 9 o'clock a poor fellow fell down in a fit near the Bear Inn ; several of the wretches here endeavoured to excite confusion, but no collision took place ; they did not go far enotigli to provoke a Quarrel—! t was too early per- haps for their diabolical scheme. At about half- past ten, however, they cohimenceil in an ob'eure part of the town, called Tunber- street, where, armed with bludgeons, they spared neither man, woman, nor child 1 but indiscriminately attacked all who came in their way. The cry of Murder ! called many from their beds, who, on coming out and inquiring what was the matter, were immediately knocked down, beaten with sticks, and tramp- led upon. The alarm becoming extended, and larger . numbers arriving, the assailants retreated to the lower ' part of the town. By this time, Mr. Moore, of the j Duke of Cumberland, ( the respectable High Constable) arrived, with a view to appease the strife, but before he could well speak, he was felled to the ground, most un- mercifully beat, and soon after carried home senseless ; one eve was nearly knocked out, and his body dreadfully cut and brused. He now lies in a very distressing state, through free from danger. His brother was also several times knocked down, but received no serious injury.—— Mr. Hull, saddler, was called from his bed by the horrid cries of murder I which now proceeded from all parts ; and without waiting to put on his stockings or his hat, he hastened almost naked, to render, as he thought, a fellow- creature assistance ; but, poor man, little did he expect to what he was doomed I Within an hour and a half, after he went out, he was found near the Ivy- house in a most deplorable state, bleeding to death !— scarcely an inch of his head free from cut or bruise. He was taken home and expired within four hours. His remains were yesterday interred in the chusch- yard at Chippenham.— Miss Wastefield, who keeps a ladies boarding school near the bridge, hearing a great noise, o O ' O o opened her bed- room window to ascertain the cause, when a large stone was immediately thrown at her, and she was knocked backwards. Mr. Reynolds, a brazier, was carried home soon after twelve, bruised from head to foot. He was heard praying most piteously for his life. " Don't kill me ! Don't kill me, Mountjoy I ( he said) and I'll give thee a guinea ;" but no mercy was shown him— lie died on Tuesday evening. Unfortu- nately he was insensible from the time he was wounded to the moment of lii3 death, so that his deposition, which might have been important, could not be taken. The wife of Pound, the carrier in Timber- street, where the fiend-- commenced the affray, hearing her husband knock- ed down at the door, ran out and was instantly felled ; and her blow, and the alarm for her husband who was scarcely risen before he was beat down again, has had such an effect on her ( she being pregnant), that serious apprehensions are entertained for her life. Mr. Blan- chard, the constable, was knocked down during the affray, and received a severe contusion on his head, and a blow on one of his eyes. James Ruby was cut in a shocking manner about the mouth and eyes— one eve is closed. In short, there are one- and thirty men, women, and children, more or less wounded ! The Magistrates ( Mr. Fuller, Mr. Grosett, and Mr. Coleman, with Messrs. Atherton and Gabriel, solicitors of Calne) assembled at 11 o'clock dfi Sunday morning, and had been sitting early and late, at the White Hart Inn, up to last evening, when they adjourned until Friday. They have been indefatigable in their exertions to get at the perpetrators ofthe above horrid murders.— Immense numbers of witnesses have been, and a great number more remain to be, examined. Wm. Clare, Esq. our respected Coroner, arrived at Chippenham, on Monday about noon, and immediately impanelled a Jury from the most respectable inhabitants of Chipping- liam, and its neighbourhood, on the body of Mr. Hull ; they have sat at the Town- hall, until 10 o'clock each night, and have not yet come to a conclusion; each vitness undergoes the closest examination ; no pains or trouble are spared to sift the affair to the bottom. The same Jury will be sworn on the body of Mr. Reynolds. A number of persons are already in custody, and warrants have been issued against several others They all appeared careless of their situation when first taken into custody, but there was a visible alteration in their countenances after they heard of the death of poor Reynolds. The Governor of the New House of Correction, Devizes, is oil the spot, rendering his as- sistance. A Coroner's Inquest on the body of . Mr. Joseph Hull, Saddler, has been held ; and from present appearances, it is not unlikely that the Inquest will last dusing the week. ANCIENT CITY IN AMERICA.— The ruins of an extensive city, said to have been discovered a few years since in Guatimala, in Mexico, have been surveyed by a learned Spaniard, and drawings made of its curiosities, which have been sent to London, and will soon be pre- sented to the world. The city had been covered for ages with herbage and underwood. NA VAL REGISTER. FROM LLOYtTS MARINE LIST, Sept 10. Smyrna, Aug. 2.— The Egyptian and main Turkish fleet have formed a junction offScio.

EDINBURGH CATTLE MARKET, Sept. 11 In the market, this morning, there were 5632 Sheep and Lambs. White- faced sheep sold from 13s. 6d. to 23s. 6d. ; black- faced sheep sold from 9s. to 20s.; lambs sold from 2s. 6( 1. to 8s. 6d. In the Grassmarket, there were 163 fat cattle, which sold from 5s. to 6s. per stone, sinking offals. DALKEITH, Sept. 5-— The quantity of Wheat at mar- ket is much larger than the demand, and sales very flat; best old 27s. new ditto 21s. — Barley, a small supply, and the quality much inferior to last year's growth, best 21s.— Oats a large supply, best old, 17s. 6d. ditto new 16s; 6d. current 15s.— Pease and Beans, also a short supply, from l is*, to 16s. per bolt. MORPETH. Sept. 12. — At our market fhis day there was a great supply of Cattle, there being many inferior, fat met with ready sale, at last week's prices. There was a full market of Sheep and Lambs ; both met dull sale— Beef 4s. 3d. to 5s.— Mutton 4s. 3d. to 5s. 3d.— Lamb 4s. to 5s. per stone, sinking offals. GLASGOW CATTLE MARKET.— There were about 230 fat beasts in Glasgow on Monday. Slots, of which there were 130, bad a quick sale, and brought 8s. and 8s, 6d. a stone. Cows were not in such great request; but they were finally all sold off at about 7s. a- stone. Sheep and Lambs were plentiful, and sold at last day's prices. The Cattle Fair of Mullingar, on Thursday se'ennight, was very thinly attended, when compared with crowded fairs of past times. The graziers are completely harrassed, driving their stock from fair to fair, in various and distant parts of the country, endeavouring, if possible, to dispose of them at first cost. A remunerating price is no longer thought of; feeders of cattle now consider themselves well off when they can save the first cost, never dreaming of a comptnisaiioh for grazing, housing, or other incidental expences. Good store pigs ex- perienced a smart rise; they brought from 25s. to 32s. each ; this is no more than a feather in the scale of agricultural dis- tress. A speedy and considerable reduction on lands is the last and only hope ofthe country. As a palliative, consolatory, indeed, but temporary, we are Happy to state that the prospect of harvest in the surrounding country is one of the most cheer- ill" we have ever witnessed, ( ioi n of every description is near- ly reaped, stacked, and in some instances, at home in the haggard. Hay harvest mostly at an end, off the best quality, and quantity not inferior to that of any season in the memory of man, Potatoe digging lias not, properly speaking, yet commenced, but from the acknowledged goodness of what has been already dug, and the fine appearance of the extensive crops yet in the ground, we conftdenily anticipate, with God's blessing, one of the most abundant harvests ever known. FALKIRK TRYST. The aggregate of the cattle at the Tryst was under that of the last year. There were about 11,000 lean, and 1000 fat beasts, about 12,000 iu whole, A good number of drovers and extensive south country buyers attended, and their attention was chiifly directed towards the west Highland cattle, of which they made large purchases. The cattle were as usual purchas- ed iu lots, numbering from ten to a hundred aud upward-..— ' Two years old West Highland queys brought from £ 2 10s. to a head. Two years old s ots from the same quarter sold from L. 2 to L. 5, according to their size and condition. One lot of 40 of the best three year old quejs sold at L. 6 6s. a head, and a number of other lots, same age, and tioui the same neighbourhood, sold trom L. 5 to L. 6 a head. One lot of four scores best three years old stots brought L. 6 10s. a bead, and a number of othei lots same age sold from L.- l 10s. to L. 5 a head, One lot, containing one hundred thiee y. ars old stots, chiefly from lslay, which in twelve months hence, with good keeping, will on an average weigh from forlv- five to fifty stones, sold at L. 4 19s. a head. A lot of 80 four year old sfots, belonging to the Lofti'tWnaco Company Iri Argyllshire, were much admired. They- were considered supei- iof to any lot ( if the same number ever stkni itt Falkirk, and they sold for the English market, from L. 9 tij I,.') 9s. a head. The best ofthe cattle were nearly all sold off on Wednesday afternoon: — Those that remained unsold were mostly soft beasts from1 the north country. The cattle market upon the whole did Weil, and prices'- fdil^ equalled the expectation of both buyers and sellers. The fat cattle sold from 6s. to 7s, a ' stone, beef and tallow. The horses were mostly in inferior condition.— Draught horses were iu request, and the best ' in'the market, runnmg from five to six years old, sold from I, 11 to L. 28.— A few saddle horses of a middling sort brought about tiie same prices. Besides these there were a motely group of hacks, roadsters, bid cart horses, and, in shdrt, all tile varieties of the ipecies at all ages, which sold according to their vaioe, at one'Sovereign each and upwards. There were about- 200 Highland ponies in the market, which were- chiefiy bought by English dealers. One lot of forty went off at L.- 2 10s. a head, and the others brought from L. 5 to L. 8. The fate ofthe cattle purchased at'this market will be regarded with great anxiety. Whether they sell well or ill in England, it will have a proportional effect oil the next tryst, which, besides being the largest of the three, - generally fixeS the prices of the cattle till the return of the suiumer fairs. 3 per C.

The Circuit Court of Justieiarv was opened at Stir- ling oil Thursday, the 12th inst. bv Lord Succoth, in the room of I jOrd Meadowbanli, who, we reoret to un- derstand, was prevented from attending by the dangerous illness of a near relative In the morning, previous to liis Lordship entering the town, he was met by the Provost and Magistrates, in their elegant coach arid four, with livery attendants. There was no business before the Court. The onlv indictment on the roll was that of Peter Moffiit, jun. charged with the murder of his father at Milsyth, who, after the usual formalities of'Iaw, was declared an out- law for non- appearance. His Lordship Here took an oppor- tunity of alluding to the foul deed with which this un- happy man stood charged, trusting it was scarcely neces - sary for him to say how much it was the duty of all to use tlieir exertions for his apprehension, should he again make his appearance in this country. The Jury being- discharged from further attendance,- his Lordship took an opportunity of congratulating, them on not having any ofthe usual tasks of a Jury to perform— a circumstance which reflected highly on those in whose hands the peace of the country had been placed, and the best proof that the moral condition of the whole community was that which leads to good order and individual prosperity. The Sheriffs of Stirlingshire, and of Kinross and Clackmannan- shires, being called up'cfir, in the usual way, to answer any charges against them, his Lordship com- plimented them On the manner in which their important duties had been discharged, as was amply shewn by the state of crime on the roll, not only that day, but on a former occasion, lie trusted they would continue zeal- ous in repressing crime, and maintaining the present gratifying state of the country. Mis Lordship also re- marked, that althongh a few years ago'there were daring attempts to outrage the laws, and to disturb the state of society, it was gratifying now to reflect that those dispo- sitions had given way to better feelings, and that the country was not likely again to be visited with similar at- tempts against the peace and security of the people. On Friday the 13th inst. the Circuit Court of Justiciary was opened at, Perth, by Lord Succoth and Lord Hermaud.— After prayers by the Kcv. Mr. Thomson, David Liddle Kennedy, and Janet Douglas were placed at the bar, accused of vending forged notes J they having, on tile filth July last, passed a note, purporting to be a one pound note of Sir VV.

Every one knows' tlvHt ihe reduction can only be of advantage to those engaged in ti'ie i'. npojtatrotl of tills article, and there can be little doubt that Government has. in this instance, yielded to the entrea- ties of Mictl speculators. At this period of universal distress in Scotland, the reduc- tion of the duty on Barilla aggravates the calamities of the north and west districts. In these the manufacture of Kelp forms one of die principal means of support of a great part of Ihe inhabitants, and what is to become of them if Government, should persist in the foregoing measures; it is easy to see they must either emigrate or starve— most of them cannot emigrate because they have no funds to carry them out of this country, and thousands aud tens of thousands must exist in abject misery ; a thriving population must be destroyed to gratify a tew individuals, and - when no remedy will be effectual, Go- vernifeept will feel the consequences that have been stated. The leductiori of the duty is not to lake place before Jan, next, and I would therefore recommend, that every county in- terested should, at the next Michaelmas meeting, agree to pe- tition against the reduction of the duty on Baiilla.

WHEN the great Statesman, now entrusted with the Sea's ol the Foreign Department, reasoned his ad- mirers into full conviction of the inexpediency of Reform, he made use of the following apt and happy illustration. There was once, said be, a Painter who could paint nothing except red Lions. He would paint a red Lion for a sign post, which might be sufficiently appropriate — but for the interior decoration of a gentleman's house,, he could paint nothing else, and he uniformly recommend- ed red Lions, great or small, as the surface to he painted would admit.

A as an universal panacea, which is to cure all Our poli- tical1 maladies ; ergo, said he, I oppose reform in limine et in toio; for if once vou admit a small red Lion, you may depend upon it he will make way for the great red Lion, Who will brook no controul, and then there can be no doubt, that all our venerable Institutions would be swept awav, for such a reform in the Commons House as is contended for woxdd change the Thing altogether. ( laugh- ter and shouts of applause ) Mr. CANNING 110 doubt believes, that the British Constitution is the admiration of tbe world, the envy of surrounding nations, and we are curious to know at what period he holds that- it became so ? Was it while the Commons were fairfy chosen, and regulated and controul- ed the public expenditure, thereby holding the other branches of the legislature completely , in check ; or since Generosity 011 the one hand, and Gratitude on the Other, has rendered the ' Commons House the servile organ of Administration ? If be chuse the Conner period, it re- mains to be explained how a fair Representation ofthe people, which is all that any reformer contends for, could change the thing altogether : but the Right Hon. - Gen- tleman finds every thing working well under the present system, as far as he is concerned, and likes not theidea of such a Reform as would render such services as his not only unimportant, but altogether inadmissible in state affairs. It has been hitherto pretty generally agreed upon, that what is wrong ought to lie amended ; or, Ubi ig another term, reformed. The Ministers of Reli- gion have for ages enforced the necessity of amending our lives, yet wickedness prevails— our Courts of Law unceasingly labour for the purpose of preventing crime, a id doing justice between man and man, yet crimes are multiplied. Are then our Clergy and Judges to be held mere visionaries— painters of Red Lions—- engaged iu fuulish pursuits, useless if they were attainable ? Shall, we be told, that mankind are wicked and criminal because the Deity wills them to be so— that all endeavours - to correct what is wrong are vain, and that, according to the common saying, things ought to be left to find their own level. Not many years have elapsed since Mr. JOHN BOWLES was imprisoned for some months in Newgate,, for having published a pamphlet in which it was stated, that the business of the nation might be very well carried on without a House of Commons. Mr. CAKXING does not Si. y that, but he assures his Liverpool friends, that a reformed House of Commons would prove the destruc- tion of our enviable Constitution. The people are, how- ever, too much enlightened to be misled by his false state- ments, or influenced by his buffoonery. Thev know, that while the people were fairly represented in Parlia- ment, the country prospered; aud they experience at this moment, the aggravated evils arising from the venality of those who ought to have been the vigilant guardians of their interests. The task may prove not quite so easy as Mr. CANNING seems to imagine, to laugh the Landlords out of the conviction that, during a season of peace and more than usual abundance, their distresses, aiid the still deeper distress of their . tenants, do actually arise from misgovernuient; or . satisfy our Mer- chants, that the loSs of their foreign markets is not the necessary and immediate consequence of , over- taxation. Hitherto the Pitt System has been supported by bribery, and coercion, but it is now a question how long these supporters shall prove available; however, " as Mr. CANNING thinks there may vet be something done, and takes up a game which his friend and countryman thought desperate, let us await the event. The Ministerial Journals express fears, that the coun- try Gentlemen may next Session " join Opposition.-.-- They object to Lord HOLLAND that he has dedar- ed his opinion, that the claims of the owners of the soil are preferable to those of the Fundholder, and an- ticipate great national evils should the country Gentlemen join the ranks of those who oppose Administration. The country, we are well persuaded, . participates not in these fears ; for it is well understood, that Landholders must lose their estates, or the Fmidholders a considerable part of their property-: ami although the Stockholders arc a numerous body, iu extreme cases the public welfare must be the supreme law. despot the people of France will hot long submit. Let our readers suppose Britain reduced to that situation, that no report of judicial proceedings should issue from the Press, unless from Journals in the pay of Ministers— that the comments which necessarily suggest themselves to every honourable mind, concerning the Manchester massacre, should be held . good cause for the suppres- sion of all the independent Journals— and that the people should derive their knowledge of political events from The Courier, New Times, John Bull, or the Journals published in Scotland, undei the same auspices and upon the same principles— and a pretty accurate idea may be formed of the stale of degradation to which enlightened France is now reduced. From a private, letter lately received from Paris, we give the following extract: " For some time our Court has been aping the measures of'the Statesman now no more ( the Mar- quis of LoNDONDERRthind the purest despotism is the order of the day. Domiciliary visits, arbitrary arrest merits, imprisonment, and even torture, are of daily occurrence. Persons accused of plots against the pa-, terual Government of Louis, are refused the choice of council to defend them, and are frequently sent to be tried, in distant parts of the country, where they are unknown, and where the Government thinks the Juries will be subservient to the powers that be. In short, the wretBhed ultra faction, which has engrossed all the power, is driving belter skelter to destruction— The same causes which led to the former Revolution are strongly at work to bring about another ; the same obstinate'blindness on the part of the onc'unne noblesse, . the same tyrannical behaviour to their inferiors, the same bigotted conduct on the part of the clergy. In short, France from One end to the other is filled with discontent, and heaving, with the symptoms of some ter- rible convulsion. It may be years before it break out open- ly; and it may burst forth in a moment, when least expect- ed. I should not be at all surprized, if the spark which is to set all into flame were to come from the cordon seini- taire, as it must he impossible, to prevent the soldiers who compose it from reasoning, as to the motives that have caused them to be sent there ; and we know from experience lately, what risks old legitimacy rtu^ when Soldiers begin to reason," We believe the allusion made to accused, who are not permitted to choose their own counsel, refers to the case of ( jeneral BKKTON, who was refused the counsel of his choice, and appears from the following extract to be prepared heroically to die for his country. When the PRESIDENT hud asked whether the acctiscd had any thing to add tu what bad been s- iid by their Advocates? UEUTON remaiked, that he had been without an advocate, and consequently without defence, as his want of experience in judicial proceedings made him unable to collect and express his thoughts. He made, some observations 011 Ihe conduct of the Procureur General. " Gentlemen," he observed, " You. as well as we have been able to examine his, ferocious lpuk' , wl. ich in vain endeavoured 10 soften themselves when they turned to you for help. lie neglected nothing to breathe into your • souis the cruel feelings which animate his owr. The act of c- cusation, which has been read to you, would of itself suffice to render his name horribly notorious, and you have seen, I think, that lie admires himself in his work. I lidve already told you, if your conscience demands blood, I offer, ymi mine ; I abandon my life to you, but spare, I pray you in the name of humanity, in tbe name of your own glory, these men who marched with me ; they were deceived, they yielded to soli- citations, they were dragged on, restore them to their famries; For seven months tliey have suffered all tfie horrorsof a rigorous imprisonment; cast for the most part into dungeons, deprived of help which their poverty could not aH'ordtbem, their fami- lies, their children will bless you, your names will not l> e for- gotten intheir prayers; your sleep will be the more tranquil, and no remorse will shake your consciences." After relating some petty vexations to which he had been subjected in prison, and among others, that the gaoler was 111' the habit of insulting him by telling him that he ( lite General) was namesake to a turn key, he observed, I answered, " Go to him who tutored you, and tell him that Ihe uame of Berton ishall be honoured in France when the name of. Mangin ( the Procureur- General) shall be execrated. My children shall ever heat that name with pride. Remember that the family name of the brave Crillon was Berlou ! This is an honour which the Procureur Gene- ral wouid not dispute, hut aristocracy does not stand instead of courage. O11 that poii. it, I appeal to the testimony of ali my companions in arms and glory. An inward feeling. tells me, that the shades of the brave Crillon and so many other heroes who have died for their country, will not repulse mine. I- idler yon my breast; strike, - Gentlemen, arid I shall die without fear. Mv soul is bold— it will be content— I shall mount with joy towards my everlasting dwelling, if I can obtain ill favour of all these unfprtunate men your justice autl your indulgence, which I implore.

To notice the proceedings of a meeting where Dr. IIUMK was the Lion, aud - a Mr. BANNERMAN the President, would be to scrutinize the character of the Priest, where " a monkey was th/ E GOD." Twaddle, dul), and drivelling, and ail about him- self, made up JosEru HUME'S harangues ; and the perfor- mances were capital as a MEI. O- DUAMA, where ttie music w. as unaccountably well adapted to the words and actions. For instance— W'e perceive by Ihe details in tbe Aberdeen Chronicle, jhat the toast, ' Montrose, Aibroatb, and Brechin" bating been drank, the air considered applicable aud imme- diately performed, was— •• Whan 1 hae a saxpence under my thumb, I'D get credit in ilka town." To tills succeeded the Burghs of ABERDEEN and BERVIE. Tune—" Fee him Father, fee him !" Whether alluding to the practice of ihe boroughs in question, or to the practice or desires of Doctor HUME, w- e cannot say. The health of Mr. SKENE of Skene, a Whig', who, by his own account of himself, appears to be somebody in that part of the world, having been drank, the air of Old King Cole was a jolly old soul" was played, by which we infer that this im- portant and respeelab'e Mr. SKENE of" that ilk" is a sort of antiquated buffoon, nick named, for fun, " Old King Cole." To the fine sentiment of Impartial Justicesucceeded « ' Money in both pockets," and to that of real Retrenchment, Jenny's Bawbee." Bui when ihe '• Arts and Sciences" were toasted, it was in company with Mr, JOHN RAM. UIK, who returned thanks in a speech. Mr. JOIIN RAMAOE is, we have no doubt, a crony of HUME'S, and has made equally valuable discoveries in the learned and scientific world, wilh those brought to light by the indefatigable Doctor, in political economy. We confess we never had the advantage of healing M r. RAIIACF. name before. The last tune for the evening appears to have been We've aye been providedfor. and sue wiil we yet" This, however forefKly it expresses Mr. HUME'S real wants and wishes, is somewhat presumptuous, Mr. JOSEPH HUME was a silent Ministerial man.

But though lie has ratted, he is found wanting still, and the ex- pression of his wants, by the aid of a tune, harmonizes admi- rably with the tcnorr of his conduct.

Each ofthe female figures leans with one hand upon a shield, and the other ele- vated to the base Of the dish. The three graces being emblematical of the three burghs, their dilferent coats of arms are engraven ; each of them on one of the shields on which the graces lean. The pedestal is beautifully or- namenteil with a wreath of the thistle, the rose, and the shamrock entwined. A wreath of roses surrounds the brim of the dish, in which an elegant crystal plate, shap- ed like a common tea saucer, rests. The following ; S the inscription on the pedestal :— O Presented to JOSEPH HUME. Esq. M. P. By the Incorporations of Guild. Trades, and other Tnhabi- tardsot ifie burghs of Arbroath, Brechin, and Montrose ; in testimony of their gratitude for and admiration of, his services as their Representative in Parliament. They re- flect w ith pride lhat he has appeared conspicuous among t the advocates of civil and religious liberty; unwearied ill fceal and assiduity in expl. r ing and exposing the abuses and profusion of a wakeful expenditure, and the steady and constant friend of Parliamentary lt. eforui. The Marine Bible Society has received £ 3 ( is. sterling, from Captain Parker and crew of Ihe B011 Accord, for the use off that valuable institution. Our reader!, wiil recollect the seizure of the Dutch dogger, Nicuwe Hoop, iu our harbour, in ihe month of August la- t year. This vessel hud 011 board above 300 tubs of Ovnev:,, and other contraband goods, to a considerable Amount ; and had a crew of II Mariners, including die Master anil two lyiys; all of whom were marched to, pri- on, for breach of the revenue laws, which impose, a fine of L. 100 upon every person engaged in foreign smuggling. These poor uien were quite unable t > pay such a sum ; and their owners having cruelly ahandutie- l them to their fate, they might have lain in j iil for an indefinite period. We are happy to le » rn, however, that Government have at length consented to their libcraiion. Mr. John Stewart, the Consul for the Kingdom of the Netherlands at this por:, has been unremitting in his endeavours for Ibis purpose; at. , i sometime ago proeurtd the release of the two boys. He ha. since accomplished the liberation of the remainder of ihe crew ; who were set at large last week after suffering a coufinetiieol of 15 months. To Mr. Stewart they lime been indebted for ninny acts of kindness, during their imprisonment 1 and to bis hu- mane exenions, without any prospect of remuneration, they mainly owe their discharge, Notwithstanding the falsehoods published in the . Aus- trian official papers, no doubt remains that the Greeks have gained an important victory as was stated, at the Straits of Thermopylae, and another near Argos, the particulars we shall endeavour to give in our next num- ber. The ridiculous evidence adduced against those accused of hostile designs against the Bourbon Government, led every one to expect their full acquittal ; but to the great surprize of the public, General BEHTON anil- five others have been condemned to death at Poictiers, and there appears very little reason to expect a remission of the sentence, however insufficient the evidence against them may have been. A great Personage is said to have ex- pressed much impatience for tbe conclusion of the pro- ceedings, and dissatisfaction because the number of victims was not greater— and no doubt will be under the painful necessity of allowing the law to take its course. General BURTON complained that his Jury was composed ofthe old noblesse, emigres, and creatures of the ultra faction ; but perhaps other agents could not have been trusted for the discharge of the expected duty. And now too, we find in the proceedings against the only liberal and inde- pendent Journals published iu Paris, an illustration of the Liberty ofthe Press as enjoyed in France. The Editors were accused of having made use of language too favour- able to the accused, and noticing tbe couiiniscratioa of BIRTH.— At Boyle Farm, on Saturday the 7th, Lady CAROLINE MAIDUNAI- D. of Clanronald, of a daughter.

UNITED MEETING. We are happy to learn, that the Members of the Meeting, sensible how m'PFCH they owe to Colonel RAMSAY'S indefatigable exertions, intend to request his acceptance of. a Piece of Plate, ofthe value of 300 Guineas, in testimony of their esteem ; and the Ladies, animated by the satne feeling, are eagerly pressing forward witii Subscriptions'in order to present the Colonel with a similar gift, and ofthe like amoutU. This is as it should be. THE DISCOVERY SHIPS are not yetmeard of, NOR could it be expected. Tlu- y are not at all in the rfafk of the whale ships, having entered by Hudson's Bay. which is to the southward of the fishing ground. Besides, if they had made any progress to the Westward last year, and were returning this year un- successful, there can be' no accounts of them for some time ; for the ice inland, ( as Capt. PARRY found on his last expedition) docs not break up till August, and then there is a tedious na- vigation before they can reach the » ? a. The following is a List of ths { TRESES and STEWARDS for next year, and we have the pleasure to add. that there is a pro- spect of abundance of sport, several plates and matches hav- ing been already subscribed.

MONTROSE, SEI- T. 19— 44 The dinner given to our high- ly deserving representative took place in the Guild Hall here, on Friday last. Considerably more than one hunched gentle- men were present, including the most respectable inhabitants of the place :— WII. LIAM ANDERSON, Esq. Dean of Guild, in the chair. The dinner was excellent, and, together with the other arrangements, did great credit to Mr. Hill, who prepar- ed it. Nothing could exceed" the unfeigned glee expressed in the cheerful countenance of every one who'attended the meet- ing. It was, in fact, an assembly of friends, united and brought together by the principles of benevolence, justice, and goodwill to all men, which are included in the efforts of Mr. Hume, and all others who endeavour by a timely reform of abuses to avert that impending catastrophe which threatens to spread misery aud . ill the horrors of insubordination over the country, if persevered in fill, by its effects, society is solved into its first elements."— Montrose Review.

These accounts were brought by the Ythan, Crai^ ie, which arrived that day, with 7 fish, about £ 0 to 85 tuns of ot! ; and reported lhat the greater part of the vessels, which Imd been beset, had sailed ( fished as formerly stated) homewurtJ ; a few only, remaining with an. intention of persevering a sh^ rc time, keeping outside the ice, and running down several de- gress of latitude.

Sailed from Sunderland dtu the 11th inst. and vv, as ovettr. kvn by the violent gale of rliat day. The vessel became leaky, although not $ 0 much, so but that tin* crew had frequently got it quite under ; but having spent the greater part of their canvas,, and the ship drifting fo sea. they abandoned her, and got on board a collier bound for Shields* where they were all safely landed. The Captain schooner, Andrew Baxter, master, lime loaded, took fire at sea on Wednesday afternoon ; but got into Ar~ broath ; cargo discharged, with little damage. The Isabella of Inverness, the pioperty of Mr. James Camp- bell of the S'ar Inn. took in a cargo nf herrings' at Thur » < » r and was about ready for sailing, when she was driven from her anchors, and cast ashore a total wreck. The crew, and pan of the cargo, are saved.

TO CO R R ESPO . V/) E A' TS.. THE REFLECTOR, NO. II. in our next. We have received many favour's from Correspondents dur- ing the two last mpnths, which we haye not acknowledged*, and have now generally to make up our arretsrs. Letters of a folio sheet closely writ ten, and of these we have, received many , if written upon subjects not immediately interesting, are really unfit for a weekly Journal, and we would beg our Corres- pondents to express themselves as concisely as possible. A great superabundance of loyal Poetry we have had upon the rtceiH occasion, some of the productions not bad— as our young friend the School Boi/ s; but believing tlyit no poetic effusion, produced upon the occasion, can survive beyond a year or two, we declined printing them. Our Correspondent,, who proposes a IvJ'agdalen House for destitute prostitutes, is actuated evidentlyT> J? good motives ; but while our large manufacturing houses exist, vve fear the consequences cannot be remedied. POSTSCRIPT,; • LONDON, Sept.. 1- 7. " Yesterday, his Majesty held a Privv Council, at which 3IV, Canning kis. cd hands, and recnived the Seals of Office from lii- i Majesty, upon his being appointed Secretary of Statefur Foreign Affairs, in ihe room of tlie late Marijtiisuf Londonderry. Mr. Canning's instalment ye.. ti> rd., y a*. Minister fi> r Foreign A flairs may he considered rather the commencement than tlu conclusion of the present Ministerial arrangements, Tho Hight Hon. Gentleman tiui- t natural!; wish to posses* ihp in- fluence of his predecessor in ihe Cabinet as well as his office, and to strength himself boih by tbe removal of some of those whooppost'd his admission, and the intui luciioti of some of hi? friends. It is alleged to be on this principle that Mr, Cha-. Wynn has been so wurtnly recommended for the Government of India- a change « hiih. would, probably, be as little pre- judicial to tfie inteti'sis of Ministers in the [ louse uf Commons as unacceptable to the Grenvilles generally The same views w ill, it is said, govern the rest of the arrangements, and now that Mr. Canning has once more passed the ;; ateof his politic- iI Klysiuin, sooner or later we may expect to see him surrounded by some of his adherents. The accounts contained in tlie foreign journals respecting the affairs of Greece are siill contradictory. Acceuding to the information extracted from thu Austrian Observer, by the Paris papers, the Tuikish forces were making rapid pro. gress iu the reduction of Greece. They ifere said to amount to SO. OOO men. against whom the Greeks, who were divided among themselves, could ofl'er no effectual resistance. On ihe oilier hand, the last Paris papers contain anirle", dat- d Corfu, August lltli, and Zinie, the 12th. giving what' is said to be authentic particulars of the general defeat of ti e Tuiks. at the pass of Tliertoojiy'a;. on the ' JOtli July. A se- cond battle, ii is also stated, look plaeeou the 6' lh and 7th August, in the plains of St. George, between Argos and Co- rinth, when it is said oOOil . Turks were killed About 20.00 horses, i « 0 rwnris, and „ ll the baggage and ammunition, fell into the hands ofthe G- teks. After this hatlla the Turks re. lired upon Coiiniu, whither ihey weie jiuisucd by Colcotriill.
