HORRY—A ludicrous story is told of him, that, iliough probably varied in the narration, has its foundation in truth. Colonel Horry was once or dered to wait the approach of a British detachment in ambuscade ; aseivicc lie performed with such skill, that lie had them completely wi'hin his pow er; when, from a dreadful impediment in his speech, by which he was afflicted, he could nut ar jticulate the word " fire." In vain he made the at tempt—it was fi, fi fi, fi—but he could get no fur ther. At length, irritated almost to madness, he exclaimed, " Shoot, d know very well what I would say—shoot, shoot, and he d engagement of consequence, and on all occasions increased his reputation. At Quinby. colonel Bax ter, a gallant soldier, possessed ol great coolness and still greater simplicity of character, calling out, " ) am wounded, colonel !" Horry replied. " think no more of it, Baxter, but stand to your post. » But I can't stand, colonel—I am wounded a se cond time !" " Then lie down, Baxter, but quit not your post they have shot me again, and if I remain here any lunger, 1 shall he shot to pieces." ter, but stir nut. ally received the fourth wound before the engage ment ended. DAVIE —General Davie (who was associated with general Marshall, and Mr. Gerry, in the mis sion sent by President Adams to France) always represented to his friends, Joseph Bonaparte, the ex-king of Naples andol Spain, (then a minister in Trance, now a resident in the United States) as the person who, of ah others connected with the French government, behaved most uniformly with liberali ty, dism eiestedness, and respect to the American commissioners. That gentleman accordingly stood high in his esteem General Davie contemplated the character ol Napoleon Bonaparte, with great attention. He saw him often and conversed with him freely. He con sidered him a man of first rate talents, as a warrior, and ol great reach as a statesman. But he regarded him also .is a man of unbounded ambition, restrain ed by no principles human or divine. On one occa sion alter an interesting conversation, Bonaparte concluded by saying, that lie.considered power as the only foundation of right, ia loi ce est droit." of m you—shoot—you I« He was present in every d to you ! » Colonel, (cried the wounded man) Be it so, Bax He obeyed the order and actu at at 'o ol ler of on Enfin, Monsieur, _ GENERAL HENRY LF.E _In his memoirs, Which, as a literary composition, do him honor, it is remarkab'e, that he is so shy in claiming military nieiit : and certainly in vaiious instances, lias with held pretensions, which he might have fanly made, ) high distinction H lias not hinted, in the slightof csUlegree, that the grand scheme, for Ihe recovery the two southern states, when Lord Cornwallis, af ter ihe battle of Guilford, retired to Wilmington, w-js first suggested to general Gicene by him ; and that it would have been alterwards abandoned, but for his earnest l emons'ranees. Such, however, was the truth, and the evidence corioborating it is per fect. In reply to my enquiries on the subject, the honorable judge Johnson, ol Abingdon, Virginia, a meritorious and distinguished officer of the revolu tion, says—" I am perfectly satisfied, that the grand enterprise, for the recovery of South Carolina and Georgia, by marching into those states, when Lord Cornwallis retired to Wilmington, originated with colonel Lee. Accident afforded me the view of a letter, written by general Greene to colonel Lee, immediately after the second battle of Camden, fought on the 25th of April, 1781, in which the general expressed a determination to abandon the scheme of continuing his progress southwardly ; and directed Lee to join him immediately with his oorps which had about that time, reduced the posts of the enemy at Wright's Bluff on the Santee river. I shall never forget one expression, in that letter, which goes very lar to prove that I am right in the opinion that I have ever since entertained. •• I fear, my friend," said the general, " that I have pursued your advice too far. I have resolved to match back with the army toward Virginia, and desire that you will join me with your command as soon as possi ble." Without a moment's delay colonel Lee left the legion, and sought general Gicene, doubtless io counteract the pernicious tendency of this hasty re soluiion. since he speedily returned, countermand ed the orders to unite with the main army, crossed the Santee, and marched rapidly forward to lay siege to Fort Motte." This statement is fully sup ported by the testimony ol Dr. Mathew Irvine ; and tnore satisfactory authority could not be desiied, since he was actually the agent, the organ of com munication betwixt the.two, while the scheme was •» agitation and ripening for perfection. Although the official proceedings in the case of Captain Hull have not been received at Washing ton, yet, we learn, from authority which we ques tion not, that he has been fully and honorably ac quitted of each and every offence alleged against him. When the official decision shall be made known, we have reason to believe, the Captain will be more highly appreciated than ever by his coun trymen, who will receive the intelligence ol his ac quittal with feelings of joy, increased by the recol lection of his important services. His accusers had every opportunity they could desire, of substantiating their charges. Never was enquiry conducted with more impartiality or patience, or a cause more ably and thoroughly in vestigated. Every allegation, however trifling it might appear, was minutely examined; and every t.neaiis in the possession of tfie court employed to . ü procure evidence. The proceedings will probably fill two large octavo volumes. We are also assured that the inquiry as to the state in which the Macedonian was when she last left Boston, has resulted in the complete acquittal of every officer of that Yard from all sort of Nat.

The fast sailing ship Howard, Holdridge, arrived at New York on the evening of the Kith inst, and brought Paris papers to the evening ol the 15 uh.

Although we never doubted for a single moment, ; that the accounts, which some time ago re ached this country, of the glorious triumph ol the Greek * patriots over their barbarian oppi essors, would be nubstamially confirmed, we have found it necessary, 1 Irqm time to time, to expose the vue attempts ol v that corrupt press in Europe, which never lads to disguise the truth when the cause of liberty is con cerned and to laud the atrocious deeds of the most abominable despotism in the world, providing it gluts its thirst for blood, under the banners of " Le gitimacy." The instance which we gave yesterday of this policy, pursued by the ministerial press of Paris and Vienna, is only one among a thousand which could be offered, and which ought to have the effect of putting us at all times on our guard^as to the intelligence conveyed through these chan nels. li appears that the ship Howard, which reached this port the day before yesterday, from Havre, brought French papers of a later date than those we gave in the Commercial of Thursday and Fri day. and containing a clear and most salisfaciory confirmation not only of the great battle fought at the famous pass of Thermopylte, in which the Turks were routed with tremendous slaughter, but of the subsequent disasters of Ihe invaders, until their final expulsion from the soil of liberty. From these details it would seem, that the official docu ment we published yesterday, related to the second hal le, in which 3000 Turks were killed, and that we are yet without the government bulletin, contain ing the details of the splendid victory which we hope may seal the emancipation of Greece, and place the victors forever beyond the control of Ottoman ty ranny. The following translations from the Paris Constitutional of the 14th September, furnish the particulars of this highly gratifying inielligence. " AFFAIRS OF GREECE.

In consequence of this proclamation, seven or eight thousand volunteer militia joined the troops oi I atras. tour thousand Maniots, in obedience to the orders of their duel Mavromichale. arrived ai Cdlamata.

The victorious Greek army marched against these new enemies. This second; battle was fought on the 6th and 7ih Aug. (15 days utter the dales of the Austrian Observer) and took place on the plains of St. George, between Argos md Corinth. Three thousand Turks perished. No account of the wounded and prisoners has yet been received; but about 2000 horses, 120 camels, and all the Turkish baggage and ammunition, fell into the hands of the Greeks; and the defeated enemy moved towards Corinth, whither they were followed with vigor, by Colocotrone " Hydra, July 31 —A Turkish division of about 12.000 men, bad lately penetrated by Livadia into Peloponnesus, where it is now harassed by ihe in habitants. •* This is the same division, whose al most total destruction we announced in our number of the 7ih Sept."— Constitutionnel.

It is added that the committee at the City of London Tavern, for receiving subscriptions, have given notice that there is no occasion for iu< ther remittances to the local distributing commit tees. And they have found, on winding up their accounts, that ihe overflowing bounty of the people of England left a balance at their disposal of a very large amount, which they have resolved to dispose of as follows . 5000/ towards clothing the poor in the distressed parts of Ireland during the winter ;— ; >000/ * 01 ' encouraging the Irish fisheries Besides those two sums, the large one of 40.000/ was voted * 01 ' ,tle encouragement of the coarser branches o! the lincn manufacture in the districts where the dis Hess was most general.
