FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 12. LATE AND IMPORTANT. Loudon papers to the evening of the 30th W September have been reoeived at New York. It seems that the storm of War is gathering \tith fearful blackness in Eu rope. Great events are almost hourly transpiring. Revolution succeeds rev* •lution more rapidly than we can pub* lish the accounts. It seems as though the whole frame efsociety, law, govern ment, every thing, was speedily to be resolved iuto its origiual elements— iuio chaos aud terror. Civil tsar in Belgium.—There has been a six days* irregular battle in Brussels, at times raging furiously, and ending by the withdrawal of the King's troops, after much bloodshed on both sides, and a vast destruction of proper ty. The troops were withdrawn on the 37th of September—taking up a posi tion at Dic’ghem, but with a view, prob ably of falliug back upon Antwerp— The accounts of the different parties are somewhat variant; the insurgents claim to have compelled the retreat; on the other hand, however, it is maintain ed, that “ unable to obtain posseasion of the town by any other means than a bombardment, which would have caus ed the destruction of that property which it was the professed object of the troops to preserve from threatened pil lage by the populace, and the sacrifice of loyal as well as disloyal subjects, Prince Frederick took the only course which was left to him consistently with honor, and the desire to prevent the unnecessary effusion of blood, and withdrew his army to a distance of two leagues from the capital, there to await the decision of the Govemmentt as to future operations.” ! The conduct of the populace proves that they are directed by experienced officers. At their head, in the capaci ty of Commander in Chief, is Juan Van Halen, & Spaniard of Belgic origin, whose sufferings from the Inquisition in Spain, have rendered his name famil iar in Europe. It is no longer, there fore, the turbulenaeof an unrestrained, undisciplined, and inconsiderate mob, but the rebellion of the mass, organized by men of military talents, and actua ted by motives of personal hostility. Tho number of persons who have perished is generally supposed to be upwards of one thousand of the Bour geois, besides 1400 wounded in vari ous Hospitals and Churches. Thetloss of the military is not known, as they buried their slain and took away their wounded. But our information does not stop here. The spirit of insurrection is spreading from Brussels down to the coast. The latest news was brought by the Spitfire Steam packet from Os tend, arrived from Dover, and the French packet from Calais. The last account from Brussels was, that the troops have been completely beaten in three several attacks upon Brussels,, and were even attacked in turn outside the walls by the Bourgeois. Every ac count gives the slaughter as immense, that one of King’s Aid-de-Camp had been killed, and Prince Frederick wounded in one of the affrays. Num bers of wagons were pressed from all round the country to bring out the dead, who were thrown together in large holes hastily dug for the purpose. A number of houses, it is said, were lit tle better than riddles,and heads of bo dies were lying piled up in the King’s Park, fot want of time to consign them to the grave. On Tuesday, the 28th, there was a rising of the populace, when all the troops in the garrison of Osteud, a inounting from 1,500 to 2,000 men, marched out of their quarters, assem bled in the Grande Place, to a man, laid down their arms. The disturbances in Beilin, are of a most serious character. “ It was not merely an assemblage of journeymen tailors, but a meeting of more than twenty thousand persons, who loudly call for the Constitution promised, in 1816. The armed force received orders to fire upon the crowd ; the troops of the line refused, it is said, lo act against their fellow citizens, but the Royal Guards executed their order : 60 individuals were killed or wounded. The crowd, in dispersing loudly de manded the Constitution. The same letter adds, that new riots had broken out at tlesse Cassel, and that the Elec tor had been fired at in his carriage; be is said to have bren wounded.” Accordingto the accounts from Rot terdam, received last night, the troops retiring from Brussels on Antwerp, for reinforcement*, had been fallen upon, by the people, who massacred the ad vance guard. Antwerp is stated to have risen, and Ghent is probably by this time in the possession of the Bel gian forces. The King can have no thing to oppnae this torrent. If he suc ceeds in getting the Dutch portion of hi* troops safe) back to Holland, he may esteem himself so far fortunate.— As for the Belgian*, they will, unques tionably, join the National Standard. The new* from Antwerp and Amster dam was to the 29th September inclu sive. The rejoicings among the people were general; but, under the expec tation that fresh rainforcements would be sent against Brussels, the most ac tivc preparation* ceatfaacd te be made by the inhabitants for a defence. If we are to credit the accounts from Ant* warp the King, who had been much in disposed, had refused three times to sign the order for the whole power of the artillery to be directed against Brussels, by which so many lives would be lost and so much property destroy ed : seeing, however, that such a mea sure was iundispensable, it is said he had overcome his scruples, and that be* fore the advices left Antwerp, the artil lery with a large body of troops, were leaving the place on their way to Brus sels, to re*commeuce the attack. An other account from Antwerp, written in great haste, as the mail was about to be sent off, says, that the military there had refased to act against the Bruxel lois. Some of the accounts estimate the whole number of killed and wounded in the tumult at Brussels at upwards of 7000. They concur in representing the Dutch troops as guilty of the great est excesses. Among other instances, it is stated that after killing an English woman they bore her infant on a bayo net through their ranks. At Liege, thefpopulacw are complete masters. The Governor, Mr. Sand berg, had fled, anu a Provincial com mission had been appointed for the maintenance of order. At Malinee, attempts have been made'to excite the people to revolt, and to disarm the troops, who kept un der arms day and night. Great riots had taken place at Tirlemart, and the Burgomaster, it was reported, had been murdered. In Brussels even women and children assisted the people, the former by throwing stones, the latter by cutting the girths of the cavalry. STILL LATER.. The Boston pa pers contain London dates to the 8th of October, and Liverpool of the 9th, brought to that port by the ship Per fect, which sailed cn the 10th. The general complexion of affairs in Franco was becoming more favorable. The Pope bad acknowledged the new 'government, and it was confidently be lieved that in a very short time every government in Europe would have min isters accredited to the court of Louis Philippe. Prussia is represented to have gone further than a mere ac knowledgment, and to have approved of the principle of non-intervention in the affairs of other nations, stipulating at the same time, not to interfere her self in the affairs of the Netherlands. If this be true it accounts at once for another part of the news by this arri val, to wit—That the King of the Ne therlands has appointed a commission jto prepare the project of a law for the separation of the two kingdoms upon terms ot amicable accommodation. The next question that arises is, whether the Belgians will submit to these proposals ? We think not, the insurgents having become so formida ble as to declare themselves indepen dent, and hence they are in no mood to listen to any terms but of an abso lute recognition of their independence, without acknowledging a mere nomi nal fealty to the King. The Courier Francois contradicts on the authority, as it declares, of per sons best acquainted with the inten tions of the Cabinets of the European powers, the assertion that a general war in Europe is likely in any event to fol low from the late revolt in Belgium.— The host'le dispositions of Prussia are denied, and the mission of M. Hum boldt, a naturalized Frenchman by his writings, is considered as a pledge of the friendly intentions of that power. One of the French journals affirms that Prussia ** has recognized in the most frank manner the existing French go vernment, and has declared her inten tion to interfere neither in the internal affairs ol France nor those of the Ne therlands.” Ministers from Prussia, Bavaria, and Saxe Weirner, were pre sented to the kmg of the French on the 6th of October. On the same day the French minister of foreign affairs stated in the Chamber of Deputies, that Louis Philippe had been cheerful ly recognised by Europe, that the dif ferent cabinets are preserving peace, and that notwithstanding the disturb ances in Belgium peaoe might be main tained by the principle of non interfe rence. The Terceira Regency has ac knowledged the French king. Eight days hence, says the Journal des De bats of Oct. 5th, every crowned head will have an ambassador at the Court of the Prince who has saved the royalty of France from utter destruction." Private accounts from Brussels say, " we are more troubled with ending our revolution than we were with re pulsing the enemy. A bout 30,000 vo lunteers from the neighboring provin ces, assembled to aid us, and are or ganized into the Belgian army. The Dutch army now have no desire to try conclusions with us a second time. A separation is now inevitable. Such is the terror with which the massacre of our four great days has impressed the enemy, that the nobltisation of part of the Bourgeois guard of Amsterdam was ! sufficient to excite an uproar in that jcity ; the wives of the people crying' out that they would not allow their sons to be draggod to butchery. Troubles «*ntinu« in Oarraaay, in the Grant] Dutchy of Darmstadt*-— Bands of from four to five hundred men overran the country, committing de vastations. All the troops were out and skirmishes occurred daily. The insurgents seemod bent on puttiug down all order and authority. They attack all the public functionaries and custom houses. In Hesse Cassel and Hanau, the insurrections are quite se rious. In Hanover too, revolution was the order of the day. And lastly Spain is said to be in a <( salutary fermentation.” A letter from Madrid of Sept. 27 says—“ News has reached here that the inhabitants and garrisons ofCadiz have proclaimed the constitu tional Government.” It is added, that Ferdinand seriously intends to offer a charter to his subjects and thus allay the political ferment. The Ex King of France had solicit ed a residence in Austria. The rains have caused much dam age in Scotland. The Duke of Brunswick is said to have abdicated in favor ofthis brother, Duke William, and is now going to prosecute London editors for libels. The most frightful accounts of the excesses committed by the Dutch sol diery in the late combat at Brussels, have been received both in Paris and London. Letters published in the London Morning Chronicle, from a Clergyman of the Church of England, detail a series of horrible barbarities. According to this account, several young ladies were violated, and then in a kind of savage mercy, butchered be fore their parent’s eyes. A private let ter received in Faria says—“ The Dutch villians in the late contest beha ved with the utmost barbarity and com mitted every kind of crime. Citizens without arms, found by them in their houses, were crucified, burnt, had their hands, ears and noses cut off, and tbeir tongues torn out: the youngiadies of a school were violated by these monsters, and afterwards massacred ; in short, thd diabolical deeds committed by these wretches are such that it is impossible to describe them, and I should not be lieve them if they were not confirmed by those who witnessed them.” Another account says—The wretch es who have left our city during the night, shot, before their departure, al] the foreigners whom they had taken prisoners during the six days of the combat which has just ended. Several Frenchmen fell victims to their rage.— An army of Tartars would not have be haved with more cruelty and brutality than the Dutch soldiers. To fire and pillage they have added rape and assas sination. Temperance Society. Lately, at a meeting of a number of the Students of the University of Virginia, a Society for the promotion of temperance was regularly organized by the adoption of a Constitution, and the election of the following officers : N. Garland, Piesi dent, B. F. Randolph, 1st Vice Presi dent ; S. Maupin, 2d Vice President, and C. Minor, Secretary. Elections.—The Tammany Ticket has succeded in N.York by about 3000 majority—and Messrs. Cainbreling, Verplanck and White are re-elected to Congress. ! Later accounts say : E. T. Throop, tlie candidate for Governor, has suc ceeded against Granger, the Anti-Ma sonic candidate, by a large majority— say from ten to twenty thousand. Massachusetts Election.—In Suf folk, Nathan Appleton was elected ; in Essex South, Rufus Choate , in Essex North, no choice, Caleb Cushi ng hav ing the highest number ; in Midd lesex, Edward Everett; in Bristol, no choice, Mr. Hodges having the highest; in Norfolk, H. A. H. Dearborn; in Ply mouth,!. Q.. Adams; in Hampden, J. C. Bales; in Worcester South, Mr. Davis; in Worcester North, Mr. Ken dall. From the remaining districts, we have not sufficient returns to state with certainty, the result. Gold.—On referring to the annual reports from the Directors of the Mint, it appears that the amount of Gold re ceived for coinage from the Southern States, has increased very considerably within the last few years. The Phila delphia Gazette, which has recently ex amined these documents, says that, previous to the year 1824, the supply from domestic sources bore a very small preportion to the whole amount received for coinage, and did not in fact exceed the value of $3000 yearly. During the year 1829, however, we perceive, says that paper, that the gold of the United States received at the Mint, amounted to about $134,000, being very nearly equal to the foreign supply lor the sirae period; and it is understood from a satisfactory source, that the amount received from the Southern States, within the first three quarters of the present year, has been nearly $320,000, while that received from foreign sources, within the same period, amounts to little more than hall that sum. THE MARKET. The recent ad* vices from England have caused Flour to advance 25 a 371-2 cents per bbl. Wheat has likewise advanced about 10 cents per bushel—Red 105, and prime White 110. LAFAYETTE. Translation of a Letter from General Lafayette to Gen Bernard inWa sbing ton. Paris, 8th Sept. 1830. My Dear General : Abundance of news must have reach ed you through the periodical papers. Nevertheless, I think it will be pleasing to you to receive some written details. You will have received some publica tions relating to our memorable week. You will also have read an account of the Review by the King, in the Champ de Mars, (or the distribution of our tri— colored flags to the National Guard. The ceiemony was as splendid as that of the Federation of 1790. We had five hundred thousand spectators ; and every one was struck with the celerity with which in less than three weeks we have organized nearly fifty thousand men of National Guards—armed, e quipped, and filing off like veteran troops. The King handed successive ly to the General Coramander-in-Chief, the (orty-eight tri-colored flags, each surmounted witb a cock in lieu of the old imperial eagle, and with this motto: “ Liberty—Public Order—Days of 27th, 28th, 29th of July, 1830.” The Cornmander-in-Chief took himself the new oath, and had it administered to the National Guard. The Colors were trusted to flag bearers, selected fiom among the mechanics who had distin guished themselves in fighting ir. the barricades. The National Guards are organizing throughout France. Wc have already fourteen thousand men for the two arroudissements only ol’ St. Dennis and Sceaux. 1 send you the order of the day which I addressed to the National Guards of the kingdom. Next week, a law will he proposed lor the final or ganization ot the French National Guard. All the citizens will compose the stationary Guard; the young men the moveable National Guard. From seven to eight hundred thousand fight ing men will thus form good corps of reserve. You know that some disturbances have taken place in Belgium, they will end, l think, by the separation of that country from Holland, under the same sovereign. We have not interfe red, except to signify that we shall not suffer that any foreign army should ex ercise any right ofinterference, leaving the nations to manage their own affairs according to their will, but not willing that other governments shall interfere to oppress our neighbors. I send you the exact account of what has taken place in the Chamber relative to South America and Mexico. You will see that I took care to mark the order ol the recognitions already made^ and to give to our dear United States the share which belongs to them. Out republican throne has been re cognized immediately by the English Government, and will soon, I hope, be recognized also by the other powers.— You will readily suppose that I did not say that this was the best of Republics. 1 do not think so ; the Constitution of the United States appears to me far preferable: But I believe we have done for the best in the present circum stances ; and have prepared, under a popular throne, all republican institu tions. There are not in France, patri ots moie sincere and enlightened than the King and his son. I knew them but little before, but they have inspired the greatest friendship and confi dence; and this sentiment is recipro cal. This, my dear General, is the point ,at which we have arrived. I do not mention to you some slight disturbances or errors among the mechanics. There is not in all any ill intention, and rea soning alone has been sufficient to per suade them. After all, most of these slight disorders, of which our adversa ries have made so much, have been in stigated by disguised enemies; and there have been no real troubles but at Nisme3 ; and the zeal of the neighbo ring National Guards and that of the Line, under the tri-colored flag, soon repressed them. Receive the new assurances of my old and constant friendship. LAFAYETTE. ORDER OF THE DAY. To tht National Guards of the King dom of France, Sept. 1, 1830 The General Commanding in Chief the National Guards of the Kingdom, called by the confidence of the People to the head of public force, in the glo rious days of our late Revolution, has thought it his duty, notwithstanding his refusal in 1790, to accept, under the new state of things, the important com mand conferred on him by the confi dence of a patriot Monarch, himself placed by the wishes of his fellow citizens on the constitutional throne of the King of the French. But in consideration of the importance and multiplicity of his duties, the General Commander in Chief must necessarily rely (of which he has indeed the happy certainty) on the patriotism, upon the zeal, and he may be permitted to add, the personal affection of his Brothers in arms throughout the vast extent of our braro and free country of France. Alter forty years of memorable vicis situdes, the old tri-colored flag of ’89, the flag of the national sovereignty of liberty and of public order, has just been gloriously, generously and forever re-eslablishcJ—around this standard has rallied with a spontaneous move ment, and will soon bo legally organi nized, all France in arms. The French people, profiting by the lessons of experience, by the progress of light, and civic intelligence, and ap preciating the glory »nd benefits of our political storms, casting off nil that de prived their first impulse of their puri ty, feels much more the necessity for general and persontl security, now that the happy division <f property and the advancement of industry; render it more and more neceSiary. Filled with respect and good will for the rights of other nations, and their bosonr s glowing with ardor for all the rights, without distinction, of individual, civil and re ligious liberty, they cannot but main tain with firmness, and if it be necessa ry; defend with energy, their own rights of independence, liberty, oflegal order, the laws to which they have consented, and the |>opular Throne which they have founded. u is the national Uuards to whom these great duties are particularly con fided ; and as no foreign iufluence can prevail against the French nation, proud as she is of her retrospections, of her strength, and of the great and virtuous example she has just presented to the world, holding in her hands the 6acred arms of liberty, so neither can any domestic intrigue, any of those temptations to disorder which the odi ous tactics of our adversaries formerly rendered so oppressive, now triumph over the spirit of wisdom, moderation, and at the same time of energy and persevering patriotism which now cha racterize France as it is, and which was so admirably evinced by her brave men during the three great days. The General Commanding in Chief, ready at all times to assist his fellow’ Soldiers with all the efforts of his de votion and of his personal indepen dence, communicates to them this day some provisionary instructions, through the medium of the Inspector General, whose long experience has greatly aid’ ed his labors. There will be no delay by the Gov ernment in the presentation of a law for the final organization of the Nation al Guatds. It will have for its basis the law of ’89, and especiallytthe vital principle of election by the citizens; but this is only an additional motive for forwarding at present with all our zeal, the spontaneous movement which does honor and gives strength to France, and which presents her such as she ought to be to her Friends, and in case of need, to her Enemies.

L. “ 'VT^rarTT-r—-^ The young Wife.—'the late extra ordinary marriage (says a Georgia paper) of a Mr. Foote, a lawyer of Decatur, Dekalb county, to a little girl of the same county, has been made the subject of legal discussion at Athens by virtue of a writ of Habeas cor pus.. 1 he girl at the time of marriage was aged 10 years, 1 month end 17 days • and weighed only 52 pounds. And fully as childish in her raauoers as ia customary at her age. it appeared in the evidence as reported to us, that the family whioh is respectable but hum ble, consist of the girl, her mother and a brother; he probably of age or nearly so. The father had left a small property, a part of which, probably two or three negroes, is the portion of the girl. The mother is rather a weak minded woman, and Foote had obtain ed such an influence over her mind, as to induce her to believe that her son was disposed to waste and destroy ihe property-to turn her out of doors— and to marry her daughter to him (hoot) the only means of protecting the property. The marriage was de termined upon, with the knowledge of the Hah or lit a i* on on a n __■ . . the daughter, on one night, and took place the next. The CTergyman and the magistrate boih refused to perform the ceremony, and the magistrate who officiated was brought from a distance. 1 he license stated the age of the giri to be over 12 years. When the girl was informed, on the arrival ol the magistrate, that she was to bemartied she positively refused, and for a long time resisted by clinging to the bed yuai, ana wnen the ceremony was performed, she sat in a chair, refusing to stand up.—-She went home with toote reluctantly, and slept with him two nights, after which she was taken away from him by the neighbors. On being asked by the Judge if she said, yes, she said she did, but did so from fear of her mother, and when asked by him if she wished to live with Foote she replied with much warmth, that she did not, and never would—that she hated him, and did not wish to hear his name mentioned to her. Foote is said to be in narrow circumstances, in debt for his board. The Judge deci ded that the girl should be kept from Foot, under the charge of a guardian, till she closed her twelfth year, when she is to become his wife, or not, as she herself may determine. Much indignation was evinced against Foote at A thens, which, as was feared, would end in violence. A message was sent to him at his lodgings at night, request ing him to walk out to sdme one who wished to see him, but by the advice of others he declined going. Ariel.— The Poughkeepsie (N. Y.) Telegraph states that an .interesting scene toook place after the late races at that place, when the veteran Ariel was led on the course for the last time, her liberal owner having determined to withdraw her from the turf. She ap peared the picture, the beau ideal of a race horse, and hundreds of sportsmen and amateurs thronged around her, to take a parting look at an old and ’de served favorite. When stripped and saddled by her trainer, she exhibited all the fire of youth, with the vigor of maturity, manifesting the most anima ted impatience till a lad mounted and galloped her around the course for the gratification of the admiring crowd._ She brushed up the last quarter with that inimitable, fairy stride, which we have so often viewed with delight—then taken the leave ofthe arena of her tri umphs, she went leisurely into a retire ment, from which no friend could wish to recall her, covered withimpeiishable laurels—the prize of many a hard fought field. Kate Kearney and Polly Hopkins. The Richmond Compiler says : We understand, that the celebrated runners Kate Kearney and Polly Hop kins have been sold by a gentleman of this city for 4675 dollars, to a gentle man of the North, for the Long Island Course. Their loss to our turf will be a cause of much tegret to the Southern Sportsmen. ,lJlnd westward takes it away*'— The Arkansas Gazette of the 22d ult. notices a match race, that was to be run the next day between the two fleet horses, belonging to Mr. Rector and Mr. Tun stall, for $1000 a side_it it> said toj excite considerable interest) and to draw a great crowd. Lynchburg, November 4.—At a meeting of the citizens of Lynchburg on Saturday last, pursuant to adjourn ment, Resolutions were adopted favor able to the scheme of navigating the James River, by steam-boats from this to Richmond. The Report of the Committee, was convincive of its practicability and expediency; and a< memorial on this subject will be pre sented to the next Legislature. There was also another Report and Resolu tions adopted, in relation to the roads leading from this through the adjoining counties. The trial ol Coleman Williams for the murder of Silas Goree, perpetrated in this town about two’years since says the Montgomery (Alabama)Gazette, of Oct. 19, took place on Thursday last, at Washington, Autauga county, Judge Crenshaw presiding. After a careful investigation a verdict of guilty was returned, upon which the prisoner was so overcome as to cause him to faint. Wc understand an appeal to the Supreme Court has been entered and granted.
