At length our standard has W ived in tri iiniph nv« r a subjugated enemy’* town_ \urk. the capital ot Upper Canada, lias iullcn beneath our *.f.iis. it has, huv&vur, cost us pretty dear. Pike, the brave, the ciilerprizing Pike, has been b.own up, with 200 of his comrade.. So says the account. We hope, in this respect, there may have been some mistake. We have, it seems, ta ken a i.unibur of prisoners—among them arc said to bo many Indiana. Will tue British exchange then. ? According to the rules of war their lives are forfeited. As the English profit of their valor, they ought toicdcem them from their perilous situati on. The Indiana are their a/lint, lint it would be quite ill the British spirit if, after having, like the Devil with sinne s, made use of them to murder the Americans, they were to abandon them to their fate. Since we expressed our opinions on some of the late articles of intelligence from Eng land, we have seen accounts of the occupa tion of Berlin, Hamburgh, and Cuxhaven, somewhat more in detail. We find, as we supposed, that the Russians have pushed a few light tvoopsforward, and that the French had retired without lighting. Cuxhaven was taken possession of by a few British soldiers from Heligoland. The Londoners are flat tering themselves with regaining Hanover, the old patrimony of king George.—From all that we can discern, Austria, Bavaria, and Saxony, s'und firm to France. And what seems a little singular, the Sivtdes have not > et taken any decisive step of hostility against B naparte. In one article which we have seen, Castlereagh is said actually to have resigned. Perhaps lie found that Canning, lusohl enemy, was coming into the cabinet, and thence prognosticated his own downfal, if he did not retreat. Retreating is as good in a politician as a General. If Mr. Ran dolph had retreated from public life eight years ago, he would have saved himself.— B it, there is another point which may ha\e had some influence in effecting the resigna tion of lord Castlereagh. We were told, not long since, that a full cabinet council was held to consult on the case of the Princess of Wales. Now we are given to understand that that princess is restored to the public and private rights of her station. May not this restoration have been the result of the cabinet consultation ? May not Castlereagh have been in the minority on the important question concerning ihc Princess Of Wales? If he was,it may have been the cause of his secession from administration. But—this is all conjecture ; and we beg that it may pass for just as much as it is worth. French newspapers received at Newport, . Rhode-Island, represent the war with Rus sia as becoming popular in France. We be lieve it, ler an obvious reason. The French are a military people; and their disasters in Russia have tended to call in question their military skill. That is a tender chord w th a Frenchman ; and Bonaparte has made it vi brate to some put pose. His policy of draw ing veterans from Spain and replacing them by conscripts, will make hisarmy of the north effective the moment it takes the held. Among all the causes of British naval in feriority when coming in contact with the Americans, there is one which must be ope rative, but which John Bull’s * unity will not let him think of. It is probaldeth.it Great Britain has heretofore had 20,000 of our sea men in her service. Now, these, or whatso ever number there may be, would fight a gainst any nation on earth but their own, e ven < n board an English man of war; and this will in some degree account for British success with the ships of other countries.— But those seamen will not fight, or, at least, if they do, it would be feebly, against their native soil. Hence, the English fall an easi er prey to us. The recent clcctitms in New-York evince the growing popularity of the w«r fur our Rights, The western district, which lias been most the scene of militury movement*, has come out gloriously in the republican cause, it is remarkable,—that is, nut <\r iruordinary, but worthy of remark-the farther you go Irom the seaboard, and the haunts of the British partisans, the more overwhelming the republican m ijorities,— Baltimore, and one or two other places, do, indeed, afford an exception to this observa tion ; but in general it is true ; and partial larly so in New England. it may l>e supposed that the leader of the incendiary gang who burnt Hnvre-de-grace was specially chosen for the purpose.—— Cock burn wnsonly exemplifying hss name *litn he was setting house» ivml barns on fire.

OUR ELECTIONS. The elections in this state hav c termina ted favorably to the republican cau^e, though it is >e.u ed we have lost Bassett in the dis trict ot Vork--if such should be the fact, however, it will he owing to two causes ; fust, m Gloucester it was not generally known that Basset was opposed, and there being no contention for seats in the state le gislature, the election was uncommonlv thin. In the second place, the counties of York, Warwick, Gloucester, James City, and city of Williamsburg, had, at the time of the e lection, a number of their freehold populati on in the service of then* country, stationed at Noifolk and Hampton, while Accomac St Northampton remained unbroken, and gave the federal candidate 1060 votes.

Of other particulars of this important victory, we cannot pretend to speak, until we have the official details ; for exaggera tion and misrepresentation inevitably at tend all oral reports—and such oily have as yet come to hand From the intimation that the squadron, after our troops had obtained full possession of York, were about to leave tha; place, we presume the plan is to attack and Subdue successively all the British posts on the mar gin ot the Lake, and thus to obtain for ns the undisputed control of that water and its borders.

CUauncey hoisted sail und left Sackctt’s harbour, with 8 ves sel . of war, Gen. Dearborn, Gen. Pike, and between 2 and 3000 choice troops on board. He took the direction of Little York, and on the 27th made that port. He entered port with four of his largest vessels in the early part of the day. A bombardment now commenced between the ships und the for tiiicatiohs, which continued between 2 and 3 hours, in which Com. Chauticey sustained a loss of perhaps 30 killed and wounded, a | tnong whom were two or three midshipmen. During this affair, Gens.

At | tiii< moment, when our troops were within a- | bout 60 yards of their depot of military stores the magazines were blown up! The explo sion was terrible! Dreadful havoc was made among our troops, us well as those of the enemy. Gen. Z. M.

And now, good neighbors, (as Dr. Morgan sail) “You shall pehold what you shall sec!” England has done the very tiring that Congress in their aU (lijin have Jett undone, bhc U.ur proclaimed the blockade of our coast us far as it ex tends south of Newport; aye, and it will maintain it too, with an adequate force. So vigilantly will her shipping watch nil our limbers and outlets, that ii.wil be impossible even for a canoe to slip by them, l his is very well if England will hold to her bar gain; it will save Congress the trouble of e i.acting a law to prohibit the exportation of provisions, lint we venture to predict that England will not stick to her text: her \\ . 1.1 hands, and her military establishments ill Spain and Portugal will soi.n want a lit tie of our 11 lur, a little corn, and a few other trifling articles which she cannot so conve niently obtain from any other quarter as from the United States; and therefore she will release one of the .proscribed ports from the blockade, and grant accuses for exportation, in neutral bottoms, of the ueed tul articles from the favored port, whic.t alter her wants are supplied, sue will shut up again. That this game will be played, we have full reason to believe, and congress* had better louk to it in time. Let u.cin pre pare a ccuntc; mine. The idea of reducing the U. States to sub. mission by blockading their ports, is preposter ous.
