mouth, had lost their courage; their provisions were
also short, and they were compelled to act. in order
tn get out of the difficulties of their situation. The
Greeks, who expected no further reinforcements,
wished for nothing else but a third decisive action,
and a moment favorable to their wishei
to present itself. 'On the 2d of March, a part ot
the troops of Redschid Pacha directed their march
towards Mount Pentclicus, in order to retreat into
Bir-olia; the Greeks had quitted their camps at
F.le.usis. and advanced as far as Ophiaus. Having
from that station noticed the retreat of the enemy,
they fell on their rear; the Turkish cavalry, which
the Seraskie commanded in person, rallied, and with

" The Circe frigate. Capf. Duval P:\illv, sailed

he is not. to open till after lie has passed the Straits

Paris, April 17.
Letters from Berlin, of 9th April, says, that the
last accounts from St. Petersbugh leave no doubt, of
the determinatnn of the Russian cabinet to come to
a decisive arrangement with the Porte, relatively to
the affairs of Greece. Thev affirm, also, that the
Russian Minister of War has sent eventual orders j
to the general commanding the divisions stationed j
from Choczyen on the Pruth. to Czerskasv on the 1
Dnieper. It is thought that, to put an end to the
tergiversations of the Divan, this mass of troops,
winch amounts to above 100.000 men, will be con
centrale,! on the Pruth. Such a measure cannot fail
tn produce a great sensation at Constantinople, and
must dispose the Porte to consent to an arrangement
with Greece, and to conform to the stipulations
agreed upon at Akermann, especially in what relates
fo Moldavia and Wallachia.
Paris. April 17.—Constitutional opinions have
just gained a great & noble triumph ; the law on the
police of die press is withdrawn ! The whole of
j France will hail this event with a shout ofgratiude.
■ Truth has at length reached the throne. The tno
' narch who signalized his ascension by abolishing the
j censorship, lots marked the anniversary of his return
j to the capital by the maintenance of that liberty of
| the press so dear to the French people, which was
proumi that, it owed the enjoyment, to Charles X. of
that which no faction will in future be able to lake
' away from us. That liberty has been twice the gilt
of the King, nor will Fiance every forget that it has
been so.
Although the news was but little known this even

squibs, and artificial fire-works, are forbiden by the
regulations ol t he police. We must not give our op

legitimate joy.

In the year 1808, John Quincy Adams was a Sena
tor from Massachusetts: He thought the measures of
the Government were such as the exigencies of the
times required, and he gave them his support ; bat a
decided majority of the State were opposed to these
measures, and of course he could not correctly re
present their views, and felt himself bound in con
science to resign his seat, and did so accordingly.
Now it is a fact well known, that there are several
Senators in Congress opposed to the Administration
and its measures, while the States, which they re
present, are decidedly favourable to them. But do
we hear of any resignations hy those Senators, on
that account? We could mention at least seven
Senators, who would resign immediately, bad they
the conscience of Mr. Adams, whom they are oppo
sing contrary to the will of their own States. It
ought not to be expected, however, that such men
will resign. If they have had the hardihood to op
pose the most salutary measures, in defiance of the
will of the States which they represent, it is not to
be expected that they will—not merely change their
course—but give up their posts to those who will
truly represent their constituents. We would, how
ever, beseech these gentlemen, if they cannot bring
d ie i r minus to an actual and immediate resignation
that they would peruse carefully, every morning be
fore breakfast, Mr. Adam's letter of resignation to
the Legislature of Massachusetts. We would not
do the injustice of estimating them by the same
standard by which Mr. Adams might be tried : be
cause candor would compel us to admit, that, in
learning, in science, in principle, in morality, and
talent, they are.far his inferiors. We beseech them,
however, that they may daily peruse Mr. Adams'
letter of resignation, and so far oblige their constitu
ents as to moderate their hostility, even if they can
not aspire to the virtue of giving in their resignations.
Some of our very knowing ones, so skilled in
figures that they are ready to take charge of the
Treasury Department in case no body else can be
found willing to occupy the post, have discovered
that our accountants at Washington do not under
stand their business. Their deficiency consists in
allowing Mr. Adams, in the settlement of bis ac

There can be no doubt that a man who presents

and that those who seJtle it, and those who have a
revision of it and actually hold the purse strings,
are most honest, anti worthy men!

Administration meetings have become quite nu
merous in Maryland. On Saturday the 12th there
at Centreville, of which Col. Thos. Wright
was chairman and John Tilghman secretary. Coi.
Chambers, being at that village, addressed the meet
ing, at the request of several of his friends. After
the preamble and resolutions were read and adopt
ed, Thomas Brown. Esq. delivered an appropriate
address, and a committee of eight persons was ap
pointed for each of the four election districts in
Queen Ann's County to carry into effect the objects
of the meeting, and a committee of twelve to meet
the Baltimore Convention. •
There was also a great meeting in Prince Frede
rick Town. Calvert County, on the 15th May, of
which the Hon. Judge Wilkinson was chairman, and
Capt. John Becket, secretary. J. 11. E. Chesley,
Hon. C. Dorsey, and I). Jenifer, Esq. addressed the
meeting; resolutions were passed, and delegates
appointed to attend the Convention in Baltimore.
Among the lesser evils, says the Baltimore Ame
rican, brought on the country by the shameful con
duct of governor Troup, is the publication of some
thousand copies of a volume of documents, cover
ing 84G octavo pages. We,take it for granted, that
this work has been published by order of congress,
was one
though one^ Would hardly thiidc stich a publication
necessary. It is true, we sometimes see a christiaflj
by profession, taking part with governor Troiipj
and defendingahis " shameful conduct " rather than
that of the government in this affair. It is admitted,
a man Iris sometimes boon so situated that he could
not arrive at the true and just state of this case,
from any account found in a paper printed in his own
state and to which he was a subscriber 1 . Dot these
cases are not numerous; and the truth relative to
this subject, us well as to others, is gradually mak
ing ils progress, and cannot fail, by and by, of dis
pelling error. Still, however, we should scarcely
deem it possible that 846 pages of documents were
necessary to present this subject in its true light»
Few persons in this part of the country, except a
Christian, by profession, and one who had sworn in
terminable war against the president of the United
States, even before he took the presidential chair,
have taken side with the man of Georgia. Such
men are a grade or two above Col, Johnson, and are
perfectly incurable. Indeed, an opponent, wishing
the cause of such men to be ruined, would desire,
most heartily, a continuation of such madness and
of such disregard of all sense of shame.
