To Urn. L. Stone, Rsq. editor of the N C JLlv.
Sir : ^ (ju lament the want of direct, am- correct
information upon the condition and wants ot Ureece, un
ami you have, reason to do so, nor you alone, but get
poor Greece has reason bittterly to lament that her
situation is not known in America; for Imd it been
Americans, by applying the weans which they have he
sent herein a different manner, might have been ^
the means of saving her from destruction. Greece,
tnv dear sir, is in a deplorable state—it is useless to
conceal truth ; her enemies without are ignorant,
and weak, but her enemies within ate. strong and 1
terrible; the Turk brings trouble and distress upon n
the country, but the Greek brings tenfold misery,
woe, and ruin. The accursed intrigues and jealousy,
the avarice and lust of power of her civil and milita
ry aristocracy, have brought the country to the brink
of ruin, from which a miracle only can save her, and
that miracle would be the repentance and better
conduct of these men. Look, sir, at -he state of
the'Pelnponessus ; there vou see the flaj of liberty
waving upon the walls, oT three proud fortresses ;
but these fortresses are the scenes of intiigue. of
plotting of secret, nav. of open internal war? The
other nodit, while the army of the Pacha was with
in ei'diThours inarch of this place, I was aroused
by tlie roar of a cannon, and the rattling of musket
ry . I arme • mvself in the thought that the Turks
had made a sudden assault upon the place, and
was astonished to find no movement on the part of
the inhabitants—ea< h remained still in his house,
as though aware of what was going on ; and 1 soon
learned that Colocotr.ini, with a band of soldiers,
Ind assaulted the castle in hopes to master it,
and make himself independent, both by its pos
session and that of the trea,ures of Dillyanis,which
he knew were concealed here. This is the mail
whom 1 see you hold high in esteem in America, fur
his courage and patriotism !!! Match me, ye Goda !
match me another mao who has drawn upon the
Peloponessus so many miseries as Cnlocotruni.
T hey talk of Ibrahim Pacha • he has ruined and
driven trom their homes thousands of peasantry—
Colocotrmii has ground them to the dust, and wrung
from them their little gain by his enormous exnc
tions : the Pacha, has defeated the soldiery—Colo
cotroni has paralyzed them: the Pacha has openly
assaulted and taken towns from his enemics-Olo
cotroni has worked to gain by intrigue ; amt assault
ed at midnight castles and towns held by men acting
under the orders of government : the Pacha lias dis
tressed the government by his movements and depre
dations-Coloetroni has still more distressed it by
bis demands for pay and rations for armies which
he never raised, by his intrigue, by his secret oppnsi
tion and open wa.v Leave aside his proceedings in

lass from some mountain, sidç : but never, no, ar
not in one single instance, has he or his immediate r
followers ventured their precious persons within the
range of shot, lie is bold and daring, but not before
un armed enemy; it is in intrigue and plotting to of
get himself and friends in power; it is in plundering ( >
aid amassing treasures for his own coffers. Where
are the treasures of I rippolizwa, and Napoli, which
he took as Commander jnchiet from the Government,
^ here his bankers in /taue, and different parts of
Italy, where he ImS large sums, while he makes the
poor peasantry pay tor the articled even of his own
table. Ilow he got his former reputation for courage
1 know not ; but now his name, here is getting to be
n mockery,and he is known only as a man who will
sac:ifice the public for party good, who would sell
his country, nay, his soul, his God, lor gold.. . n
language may seem to you strong and impassioned, ;
but it is the language of a man, w.io engaged with i
his heart in the best cause for which a people eyei j
vet drew the sword, sees that cause endangered 'by ;
of the selfishness of those most bound to support it; ,
of one, who sees his adopted country about to Ge. j
; sacrificed oh thealtar of avarice and selfish ambition;
of of one. who sees an ignorant, but naturally intelligent',
and virtuous people neglected, nay, betrayed by their ,
leaders. 1 speak to you of t'oloctroni—not because,
he is alone in the course of iniquity, not because he;
i cl the worst—but, because his name is known to you. j
I am not of his party, rmr of any party ; he has ne- j
ver done either me or u.y friends any good or il ; ;
of I speak of him as a public character, and I could ,
speak to you ot others—I could tell you ot the char- !
ncter of Dillyauw, ot Notaras.of Zarmis,<d Grondos, ;

it, whose course has been uniformly one oi m ngne, !
for their ow n private or party interest-neglecting ;
their sacred duties to their country, to pursue selhsn
—nay, often criminal ends. But it is enough to say j
fur to you, that Greece is reduced to her present state ,
! « ÏF™ 1 measure, by the jealousy, he intrigues,
the and the secret opposition which one leader makes
to another. I have until now, abstained trom mak-j
ing this known in America, trom motives ot consul

ways, something m.*,it unite them ; but see the.

while (he people have become miserably poor. One
fact alone will give you an idea of this system. I
have known the time when Greece had not 5000 med
foot, while Government was giving daily pay and
rations for 40,000, besides the pay of the Generals.
And when Government could not find means to sat
isfy any importunate claimant, they tried to pacify
him by some high title. Any one, be his profession
hat it might, who had claims upon government,
' could have had a commission ofColotwl, or Gen
j era I ; as for Major or Captain, it was beneath one's
n()tice T | lis wa8)a nd is so common,thattitles here
are made ridiculous by so many assuming them whd
cannot support them: there are hundreds of foreign/
ers. men who were only corporals or seijeaitts in
the European armies, who have got titles, and strut
about with one or two ragged soldiers at their heels/
and call themselves Colonels or Generals.
I remember once being with a body "dl three hun

rejoice to find selfish men, who for their own into-'
