Malta, Nov. 7.
We are happy to announce the arrival of Vice
Admiral SirE.Codrington and the British squadron
iii this port. A part of the squadron of Rear Ad
mirai Count de Heiden, and ot the Rear Admiral
the Chevalier de Kigny. is hourly expected. Many
of the Ships have suffered considerably ; and ar

which the British Admiral gave out after the battle.
Asia, 24th Oct. 1827, in the Port of Navarin..
Before the United Squadrons remove from the
Theatre on which they have gained so complete a
■victory, the Vice-Admiral, Commauder-in-Chtef,
is desirous of making known to the whole of the
Officers, Seamen, and' Marines, employed in them,
the high sense which he has of tlieir gallant and
steady conduct on the 20th inst. Heis persuaded,
that there is no instance of the fleet of any one
country showing more complete union of spirit, and

the three Allied Powers together, in this bloody ami
destructive battle, lie attributes to the bright ex
atnple set by his gallant Colleagues, the Rear Ad
mirals, the able and cordial support which the ships
of the several squadrons gave to each other during
the heat and confusion of the battle. Such union ot
spirit, and of purpose ; such coolness and bravery

use of their guns, ensured a victory over the well ,

From the Trenton true American.
It will be seen that the influx of our COTTON
GOODS into the British Colonies is complained of ;
and it is asserted that cotton goods of a better qual
ity and at a less price than can be imported from Great
Britain. The truth is, that no other goods equal to
those manufactured in the United States can be had
any where else. They are at first cost somewhat
dearer than the English, but they are so much more
durable that in the end, they are much cheaper
than the British goods. We use more cotton and
less sizing and tili ng, in our manufactures than the
British. This is well known in all their American
colonies, in the YVest-India Islands, and in South
America. 'The consequence is, we are driving out
of those markets all British Cotton goods of such
qualities as we manufacture. Nothing but the long
credits they give, enable them to keep any portion
of those markets. We should soun do the same as
to H nolens, if Congress would but do its duty, and
afford them that protection which is given to cotton,
and which in a few years has brought it to such per
feitionas to insure the whole of the home market,
ami to supply it with better goods and at a cheaper
rate than it ever was before supplied. We marvel
at the ubstinancyof some of our Southern politicians,
If they were not wilfully blind, they could not but
al see that thc home market would be to them in a few ,
years infinitely superior to the foreign. If our cot
ton manufactures had been established before the
an- war of 1812, the cotton of the south would have
be- found a most valuable market in the middle and eas
of tern states, and our citizens and soldiers would have
been more comfortably clad for half the money then
expended. The home market is every where the
most valuable and desirable. No pains should be
spared to secure it. It is the wisest and the best pol

Bargain and Sale. —Eightleading Jackson mem

letter to the State Treasurer to this effect :—
" You hold an office, you have ten children, and
I for their support, as well as your own and the rest
of your family, depend upon the $1,400 a Year of
which your office produces ; but you are suspected
of being opposed to the election of General Jackson;

you will not so promise, we will vote you and your
children out of doors, and you and they may live or
