Turkey.—Letters from Odessa of June 25,
routain some new detail* on the Utc in
surrection in Conatantinople. The Sultan has
forbidden any one on pain of death, to pronounce
the words nizam gedid, which aignify the arming
of troops in the European fashion, to avoid excite
ment; but this new measure was the causa of the
revolt of the Janissaries, who on the 16th and 17th,
were completely defeated, driven hick into their
barracks, and there burnt to the number of several
thousands. The number of killed on boih sides is
estimated at 10,000, and tbe Aga l’acha is said to
be among them. Constantinople still resembles a
camp. Several quarters of the city have been
burnt, and the Sultan taking advantage of hia vic
tory, has ordered executions under his own eyes,
and rewards to the faithful among the Janissaries.
I lis courage has also finally conciliated to him the
lavour of the people.
The organization was with little noise, and e
very thing appeared tranquil until the night of the
15th, when the leaders of the Janissaries began
their roantruvree— and at 6 in the morning the re
volt was complete. The Janissaries had brought
tbeir rooking vessels to the square of the Atmei
dan, and overset them, to imply that they would
have nothing to do with tbe Grand Scignier, and
they refused provisions.
They invited the Topsrhisto imitate their exam
ple, but they refused; however, the Janissaries
continued to march towards the Seraglio, threa
tening to depose Mahmoud and to proclaim his
eon.
At noon the Seraglio was invested; and then the
Canonitr* of Topschis, who had come by water
from the arsenal with some faithful troop-, pre
sented themselves at the avenues of tbe palace with
cannon. This surprised the Janissaries, and made
them hesitate; but towards evening they showed a
disposition to make an attack, wLen the Sultan ar
rived from his summer retreat on the other side *f i
the Uosphorus, displayed the standard of Mahomet.
At the same time criers mounted all the minarets,
and called on all faithful believers to assemble round
his highness. The rsnks of the Janissaries began
to grow thinner, and the Topschis with their cannon
rharged with esse shot, caine out of the seraglio, i
and being backed by the marine troops, made a
terrible carr.age of the Janis-aries, who retired to
their barracks to the number of about 12,000_
There they hoped they should be left in repose; but
at near midnight the Sultan gave orders that they
should be attacked, and the barracks set on file.—
The chiefs then gave themselves up ns prisoners;
others were executed; and fifty chiefs of Ortas
were strangled.
On the 16th, the Ags Pacha continued his per- !
rctutions of the Janissaries who had escaped and
maintained their defence in some houses. A certain 1
number however succeeded in escaping to Audri
anople. On the 17tb the arrest ol Janissaries op
posed to the new system, who had concealed them
selves in the city was continued; and harbouring
them was forbidden off pain of death. The markets
were opened.
1 he wrae day tne Aga Pacha was nominated
Khais.; 43 chiefs of Janissaries received employ
ments corresponding with their ranks, as a rewaid
for their fidelity; and a hatti sherif of his highness
erased the name of Janissary from the books of the
empire.
On the 19th, the Sultan taking advantage of his
Pieces*, had drum* brought from Pera, to put into
practice the European system; and the orders for
the suppression of the Janissaries were sent to all
parts of the empire. The result is to be anxiously
looked for. It may be that faithful Topshis will
nwt every where be found to act with decision.
Paris, 12th July_The last news from Con
stantinople left the Sultan and his ministers much
elated by their victoiy, and determined to pusb its
results, forty ortas of J*ni**Hiies were concjuered
in the capital. There ore fifty-six others di-pei*ed
throughout the provinces, and they constitute a for
midable corps wherever stationed; for they not on
ly compose the public armed force, but the most
considerable citizens cause themsehes to he enroll
'd in the ortas, in order to enjoy the impunity
which the title of Janissary affords.
Notwithstanding this circumstance, the new hat
<i sherif, or decree, instantly aboli-hes the institu
tion of the Janissari*#. It moreover orders, that
each Pacha with three tails shall organize immedi
ately a corps of 10,000 men, to be drilled on the
European system, and each Pacha of two tails a
-imilar corps of 7000 men. All well disposed
Janissaries and citizens are to be admitted into
these corps. In short, the Sultan is determined
to have within the year an army of 30,000 discip
lined men. This army, which exists only a* yet
on paper, has received, by a decree, the magnifi
cent title of Jlsksri laohmnrdic djeaid tnunsour
rinrn, new victorious Moliommedau army . We
must wait the result.

Quincy, Hth August, 192H.
Gentlemen: I have received your very kind
letter of the I4tb tilt, enclosing a copy of the pro
ceedings of the Select and Common Councils of
the City of. Philadelphia, on that day honorary
to the memory of Thomas Jefferson and John
Adam*.
In (he name and behalf of the immedia'c relations
of the latter of those citizens, and as one of those
relatives, I pray you to tender to the Select and
Common Council of Philadelphia our grateful sense
of the interest which they and the inhabitants of
that city have taken in the special berr.-»vrm<,nt,
allotted by this event to the personal kindred of (lie

claration of Independence can surely never turn
back a thought of reverence and gratitude to their
fathers, without associating with the remembrance
of tbeir virtues, the appropriate name of that city,
where the charter of united equal rights and bro
therly love, was first proclaimed to the hopes and
aspirations of Man.
Accept roy respectful and friendly salutations.

RIOHMOWP, AUGUST 18.
'Io the Kditors vf the Knquirer.
Gentlemen: I have no disposition to pursue the
controversy with Cains Gracchus any farther.—
The argument between us, is at nu end—and might
indeed very fairly have terminated at an earlier
period. But his gross perversions of my original
argument rendere I explanations necessary_and if
in making them, I have ventured to apply a suita
ble corrective to overweening arrogat.ee, I find
rny justification, not loss in the offence to be pun
iahpd than in the spirit in which my earlier for
bearance was met. Like the old man in the fable,
I have resorted to stones, only when simpler wea
pons had failed in their effect. And if Caius
Gracchus is now smarting under their opera'ion,
he must blame, not the instruments of Iiik correc
tion, but the vanity which exposed him to their
peltings.
Before venturing to complain of “labored per
sonalities,” or representing them as “ tho shifts of
disingenuotisnes- and double dealing,” he ought, in
common prudence, to have adverted to the fact,
that it was himself who first attempted to divert
the public mind from the subject in discussion, to
the person and character of his opponent; and if he
hid not been permitted to as-ail with impunity, the
principles, of what he is pleased to designate as
“ a club,” he mu-l recollect that his investigation
of those principles was combined, from the begin
ning, with an indecorous attack on the integiity
and fair dealing of their supporters, and with'
a wretched attempt to draw down “ the execration
and horror” of the community, on a very respecta
ble portion of his fellow citi/.ens.
IIow far 1 have been stimulated to the defence, in
which I have engaged, either by “ religious enthu
siasm,” or by “ the little troublesome vanity which
is known to beset n>e,” I must leave to the judg -
ment of others. I cannot help hoping, however,
that in selecting motives of action fot me, my op
ponent, (with whom I have not the pleasure of a
personal acquaintance,) lias relied on the sugges
tions of his own exuberant fancy, rather than ou
the information of others. And i feel per>ct!v
assured that an intelligent public will, at all events,
visit with a spirit of indulgence, “ a vanity,” so
“ little,” as to aspire only to a reputation “ to be
won in n controversy with Coins Gracchus in
the public prints ! / /”
i nave not Been guilty of the inconsistency
charged upon me. It is very possible that *• in
imputing to him, at first, both ingenuity and learn
ing,” I might (as tvas intimated to me, by a very
respectable neighbor of his, and is now confirmed
by bis own declaration,) have done him more than
justice. Hut as these were not wholly incompati
ble with inordinate vanity, end presumptuous ar
rogance, I have not felt myself delr.irred by early,
and (as it would seetn) unmerited praise, ‘i um ap.
plying the lash of lidicule to pretensions, evident
ly beyond the reach of argument or advice; and if
my respect even for Lis “ ingenuity and learning,”
has undergone a considerable diminution, that pub
lic to which he appeals, will atuibute it, (I am
sure,) not so much to any “ varying humour” ol
•mine, a» to the obvious intellectual descent, which
has marked Am latter progress.
Hut it is not my wish to be unjust. Cains Grac
chus has tiienis and learning amply sufficient for
the sphere in which he was designed to move. An
ingenuity ler-s brillhnt, an education less polisher],
and a facility of expression le.-s happy, than have
fallen to his lot, might make a very respectable fi
gure before an ordinary jury. These qualifications,
(aided, ns they will be, by a spirit of self-compla
cency, tiiat can conceive no higher motive of action,
than •• a reputation to be won in a controversy
with Cams Gracchus,”) may very possibly fit him
for the new theatre on which he is about to act._
They may oven make him somethin", in a body,
where, (as I once heard Mr, ll.indo!ph say in refe
rence to a similar body,) “cyphers do not always
pass for noughts.” lint they have not qua
lified him to become a public iustructor, and if
the “ cacoethes scribendi” has acquired a hold
upon him absolutely irresiatable, I trust lie will, at
least, select, in future, some other objects of attack,
than the benevolent institutions, and the religious
feelings of the community in which he lives.
OPIMIUS.
Fairfax county, August Sth, 1S2G.
CoTTwnmicatal for the Enquirer.
To the Freeholders of Essex County.
I ti.iow CrriZEXg: l’lie object of tins com
munication it to arrest in its piogtcss a report,
which appears deeply to concern some of the good
people of the county; namely, that I am a candi
date for yo'ir suflrages to represent you in ihe next
general Congress. Although the exercise of this
right is extended to every Freeholder, not only to
the opulent, but to the indigent, not only to the
wise, but to the ignorant, to the just and to the
wicked, yet I have never availed myself of ihit>
salutary privilege. I have gone so far as to say,
that in the event Ml. Garnett declined a re-elec
tion, and certain gentlemen, who bad been severtlly
named as a successor, should present themselves as
candidates, that I should take a poll with them; and
f did not consider it either presumption or vanity
in tne to make such a declaration, inasmuch, as
I deemed my qualifications, whether moral or politi
cal, not inferior to theirs. I think, however, on
such occasions, that a sense of patriotism, a sense
of practice and of pride should induce us to make
the best selection that ihe District can afford. It is
much to be lamented that this District furnishes so
very few qualified for this important station, but
much more is it to be deplored that the peopla im
mediately take sides for or against those, who pre
sent thcmaclves as Candidates, without appearing
to recollect for a moment that an infinitely better
choice might be made; hence the ignorance and
corruption so frequently, and sometimes fatally
manifested in our Legislative bodies. Not that I
would, in the present case, attribute either igno
rance or corruption to any of those reported to be
candidates: on the contrary I very readily admit
their elevation above mediocrity, and Ihe reputation
they support as gentlemen. I only contend that a
much better choice can be made. I have not beard
of the resignation of Mr. Garnett, but if his debi
litated state of health should compel him to adopt
this alternative, I would then remind the people of
ihe county, for I will rot presume to a.lviso them
that the merit of Randolph, although long neg-i
lectcd, has not been totally overlooked; that Giles
has recently been taken from his retirement; and
that we too if not behind others in patriotism,
could furnish one of the same fraternity, who emi
neaily combines all the qualifications requisite for
so important a station. Having made this sugges
tion, I will candidly aver that, not considering my
self of sufficient bottom foi a five mile circuit, I
have, for the present, relinquished all idea of be
coming a candidate for Congress, no matter who are
candidates, and shall content myself by running, in
the apring, over one fifth of the ground with the
saddle hordes of Essex. And in taking this step,
I shall not indulge in that s'rain of apologies so
frequently resorted to on such occasions. I shall
not introduce myself upon the political theatre by
expressing an bumble sense of my own want of ta
lents, by acknowledging my extreme unwnrtbine«s
to be so highly honored, nor by making a public con
fession of my incapacity to discharge the important
duties of a Legislator. These are enquiries which
I shall submit to the impartial consideration of the
enlightened Freeholders of Essex; for were I *n an
appeal to your judgments candidly, or even tacitly,
| to admit my unfitness in these reaped a, I should
save you the trouble of canvassing my pretensions,
1 and furnish you at on'e with the most conclusive
! evidence* why 7011 abou* 1 unhesitatingly iec:rJ
your suffrage* against me. Neither anali I pursue
* course the reverse of this. I shall not endea
vour to impress upon the minds of the people of Es
sex that this is an important crisis, a momentous
era of the nation which loddly calls for your ablest
citizen* to icpiesent you in the councils of the
State; and therefore, that a discerning people
should select Thomas II. Pitts; for were you to
act in obedience to this admonition, I am confi
dently assured that you would not only dispense
with ihe tender of my political servires, but also
with the charitable offer of the service* of many
others. 'I he question then necessarily arises, why
do you solicit our support? My answer is, l.e
cause I wish io become a useful member of the
community, and wish an opportunity for that pur
pose afforded me; for without such opportunity,
those possessed of political reputation and conse
quence in the world, could scarcely have acquired
those advantages: hence the propriety of sometime*
selecting from the multitude one who promise* to
be serviceable. Now, whether any flattering pros
pects are entertained of me, or in other word*,
whether 1 am a fit subject to be taken from the
^ ranks and trained for future usefulness, is a ques
I tion entirely submitted to the impartial considem
■ tion of the Freeholders of Essex. But this ia not
| '*** ’ y°u *houhl oe able to judge, and pretty correctly
[ too, wise*her in the discharge of my political func
t.ona I should be inclined to act agreeably to your 1
wishes; or ratner, whether I should I* most apt to
merit your approbation, or incur your displeasure.
- ow, as this cannot absolutely be ascertained, the
surest method of forming a correct opin on, would
be to take a review of my past political opinions,
and where you do not approve, ponder well the
reasons that influenced me, and if upon sober re
flection, now that the state of excitement is over,
you find them entitled to weight, the presumption
is, that my tuture course of conduct would not be
very exceptionable. As my political sentiments
are pretty generally known in the county. I shall
be extremely brief on this point. The first impor
tant political question against which I took a de
cided and active part, was the declaration of war
against Great Britain: not that we were without
sufficient grounds to authorise an appeal to arm*
lor wo were sorely oppressed by the retaliatory
commerc.al ed.cts of both the belligerents, England
i * urn me oonvictiou that it was ai
impolitic, unwise, and badly timed proceeding. We
were wholly unprepared for so dangerous an exp’r
ment; and if, according to the wishes and expecta
tions of Madbon’s Administration, Honapnjie, who
wan then in the height of his ambitious career, had
succeeded, with our assistance in subjugating Bri
tain, the cruel and relentless tyrant would have con
sidcred himself under no obligations whatever to us,
but flushed with success, and grown more ambitious
than ever, would have played upon ub the same
game that he had so fatally played upon others.—
; The anticipation of the downfall 0f England so
, much desire by the war party, and apprehended
' b* ,he opposition, caused the latter to contend, and
very wisely I think, that England, at that time’, in
lighting f«r her own existence, was literally fight
, ing the battles of the world. But, contrary -o the
, expectation of every body- both statesman and
| ploughman, the tyrant falls, and with him the ex
I pectations of the Administration party. England
| is now enabled to take advantage of our exposed
j situation, and to direct her whole disposable force
against us; and hut for the almost unexampled
; prowess of our navy, combined with the brilliant
and unprecedented success of General Jackson at
.New Orleans, discomfiture and defeat must have
j btc" \he consequence. I rejoice, however, that the
war did take place, since by these events we so
fortunately disentangled ourselves, and considerably
i advanced thereby the national character.
i he next important political question that parti
cularly engaged my attention was, the late Presi
dential canvass. In this, I was opposed to the
election ol Mr. Crawford, the avowed favourite of
irginia. ^*> bycause I considered it highly im
prudent to sanction '.he unknown views of a mino
rity . sucus, that had forced him too upon us, in
conjunction with Albert Gallatin as the Vice Pre
sident, a gentleman, who stands charged with hav
ing formerly hearted a party of inHurgents in oppo
sition to the wise Administration of IVashin*ton;
2ly, because lie had acted very inconsistently a« a
politician; having bitterly opposed theadministra
tion of Mr. Madison, and ail the measure* p^epara*.
tory to a state of war, and afterwards voted for its
passage. His inconsistency has been accounted for
in this way. President Aladtson having some bu
siness of a secret nature at the South, determined
at the suggestion of Mr. Smith, bis Secretary, to
Oder the agency to Mr. Crawford, with a view it
supposed, to soften his opposition. Accordingly
a letter full of compliment and flattery was ad
dressed by the Secretary to Mr. Crawford, inviting
him to accept the appointment. He complied, and
returned to the Senate the next year (1S12,) and
voted for the war. At the ensuing Congress he
was recommended by the Executive, .Minister to
1’ranee and obtained the appointment with a salary
per/ectiy ignorant of the
- rench Jang'iage. Pas-ing over the circumstance
of his having in 1(98 signed an address declaring
h:s confidence •* in the wisdom, justice, and hr.n
nesa’* of the administration of .Mr. John Adams
his precarious state of healih fcc. &c. I was on^
posed to his election, 3dly and lastly, berau.e of his
want of skill in the management of the Treasury
Department. I was opposed to the election of Mr
C lay because I then thought, and am now confirmed
in the belief, that he is apolitical iuggler_a sort
ot bargain and tale man, totally unfit to have any
control over thedestinies of tbi*Government. I was
opposed to Mr. Adams, because I considered him
a turncoat, a federalist and Aristocrat. It is need
less to point out his inconsistencies, inasmuch as it
is perfectly manifest, that he ha., in bis diversified
course of conduct, veered to almost every point of
the political compass, and it i. equally idle to dwell
upon his Federalism and Aristocracy, farther than
to remind you of bis productions signed Publicola
against Paine’s Rights of Man, his system on eti
quette, kc $-c. And I am now more opposed to
him than ever, because of the manner by which he
has acquired power, and because he is the mover
and promoter of measures, which if not success
fully resisted must result in the destruction of State
Rights and probably of American liberty. I was
not opposed to the election of f.eneral Jackson
because I appreciated civil liberty—berause I res
pected talents— because I admired patrio-ism, dis
interestedness, probity—because 1 revered age and
lelt grateful for arduous and beneficial services: and
now, permit ir.e to recommend this great and good
man to you, the terror of Britain ami honour of
America, as the seed of liberty to brnise the gcr
pe/if’ahead. Could fienera) Jackson be President,
■lohn C. Calhoun continued as Vice President, Col.
Benton or John Randolph he made Secretary of
State, and some more suitable personage ,h»n
Ru.b and Barbour, be made Secretaries of the
treasury and of the War Department, and we should
have an able and virtuous administration. I hope
I shall he pardoned for having indulged in this di
gression, which will no doubt be treated as pre
sumptimis having emanated from so humble a
source I hope I shall likewise be pardoned for
h.vmg trespassed so freely upon your patience, and
I will now relieve you by stating as concisely as I
can, some of my objections to a convention, and
also my objections to the appropriation bill, pro
posing to refund from the State Treasury the ex
peuditure incurred by the 'rovernor and Council at
* orktowu I introduce this latter question, mere
ly beesuse a considerable difference of opinion has
exute l ,n this section of the country concerning it.
lam opposed to the call of a convention, because
tlie most important lesson I have seen urged in fa
vour of it is, the inequality of representation, ft
I '* a grievance that those counties whieh
| are four or six times as populous as others, should
I -end no more delegates to the Virginia Assembly.
| Admitting this to be a species of injustice, I think
! that the hazard we should run, snd the expense we
should Incur, would be greatly paramount to the
1 ,nJ"Tand besides, were the alteration mad®,
or rather this constitutional defect remedied, I don’t
I believe it would be attended with any salutary eC
| f*ct; because we find the people, at present, quite
indifferent about the best selections that the conn
i tie, can afford, and I contend were fifty sent in
|stead of tee. Mat some eq tnijss c.oulj be as coin
pietciy unrepresented. I am further opposed to a
convention, because I think it impolitic to extend
Hie right of sutFrage— every person cannot be per
mitted to vote: the limit must be fixed eomewhere,
and I coni end that it is already wisely fixed; be
cause the landed interest, eitlter directly or indirect
ly, supports every other, and therefore, should be
tbe more carefully guarded. I was opposed to the
appiopriation bill, because I considered it uncon
stitutional, and because I think if the whales and
the charts will mate a feast, partake of it, and have
the -ole credit o» it, that it is not only unjust, but
ungenerous i.; them, to call upon the sprats and the
minnows, to bear their burthen of the expense_
Mere, I should propedy conclude; but J will add an
observation in relation to the TaritT, although I atn
tree to confess, that my opinion, as it regards its
judicious regulation, is very imperfectly formed.
A fir qaf'!,'on ** not whether wc are in’favour of
a i ariir or opposed to it; because there have been
duties upon foreign growth and manufactures ever
since the foundauon of the Government, but how
those duties should bt regulated. Tbe question is
abstruse front its very nature ond tendency, de
pending more upon practical experiments, than ar
gumentative demonstration. I tan, however, safe
ly aud confidently affirm, that I shall ever tie op
posed to the laying of heavy duties upon the actual
necessaries of life, but can see no objection to their
being imposed upon foreign spirit?, and the extra
vagancies of dress—were heavy duties imposed
upon imported spirits, broad cloih, silks, merino
-bawls, leghorn bonnets, and Canton crapes, their
use would be confined to the wealthy, or ra
tiiei to the foolish and extravagant part of the com
munity; and to raise a revenue, by making folly
and extravagance subservient to wisdom and pru
dence, is the lea-t objectionable method that could
possibly be devised. I am not one of those so
completely under the influence of prejudice, ae
publicly to declare, that I would not be caught ha
bited in the fabrications of our northern brethren;
nor have I that sort of pairioti-rn which would in
duce me to impoit, at a dear rate, the fabrications of
Manchester, rather thin be seen in a Yankee
badge: and as much as 1 admire the virtue, talents,
and patriotism of John Randolph, I think his con
duct highly to be condemned lor refusing to par
take of a dish of Irish potatoes, merely because
they had been cultivated north of the Potomac. —
Conduct like this, in great men, is peculiarly cal
culated to promote those local jealousies, which
lead to disunion, and which has been so justly re
probated by the Father of his country, who in his
V slalictury, particularly enjoined it upon u?, not
to be influenced by geographical lines. I shall not,
in conclusion, take my leave of you, Fellow Citi
***••* by saying that I shall not be mortified at de
feat. It is the natuic of mankind—at least, it is
my nature, to be mortified at disappointment, and
pleased at success—should you, therefore, repose
your confidence in me, I shall manifest my grati
tude by not knowingly betraying it.

most distant parts of the Union, of the lively sen
sibility which is every where felt, at the death of
Messrs. Jefferson and Adams. The people in every
city,'own, and coonty, have given utterance to
their feelings of regret, and taken measures to ex
press their grateful sense of the viitues and public
services of the illustrious dead. When the iutclli
gence reached Nashville, a meeting of the citizens
was called, at which Gen. Jackson presided.
Resolutions were adopted on the motion of Mr.

Yon* County Court, the I7th of July, 1826
As this Court are of opinion thst the death of
Tin ru <8 Jefferson is a great national calamity, ami ;
as they think that the gratitude of the nation to- I
waul* no distinguished a Patriot, Philosopher, and !
Statesman should be expressed by the servants of '
the people in a manner the most respectful, and at !
the same time best calculated by its permanence >o
transmit our gratitude to po-terity :
Ordered, therefore, that this opinion be entered
of record, and that they will adopt, together with
their fellow citizens, any measures expressive of
their profound veneration for his Memory.

SAMUEL SHIELD, Clerk.
.Apprehended Scarcity. —At a meeting of a
number of the citizens of Wsrren county, at War
renton, North Carolina, on the iltli m«t. Jiult'e
Hal! was called to the Chair, and J. 8ornerveil,
appointed Secretary. The following preamble was
adopted:
• Whereas, it ftas pleased providence in its dis
pensation* to afflict this section of our country
wilh a drought in its duration and severity exceed '
ing all examples in the memory of any man living,
whereby the industry and labor of alfclasses of ci
tizens have been rendered abortive and fruitless
and the most fearful apprehensions are entertained
that many of the poor and indigent may perish m
greatly suffri for the tvaul of means of supporting
A central remmiltee of Messrs, ff. Fitts, (Y
Drake, It. H. Jones and J. Anderson, was th/n
appointed '• to open subscription* for the contrili
tion of money or provisions for the support ofjiX
man life.” The citizens of other parts of thV
county, were recommended to appoint committees
to confer with the central committee. These com-'
tnittees are to make rules and regulations, touclmig
the disbursements to be made. An additional com
mittee was appointed “ to prepare such resolutions
as in their opiuions may seem likely to diminish the
impending calamity of famine, and report the same
to a general meeting of tLe eitizens” to be conven
ed at a subsequent day.
Our country has heretofore be.en bleued ijy a
bountiful providence, with a profusion of the ne
cessaries of life. While the products of the soil
have varied with the varying season*, there has al
ready been a great surplus in the aggregate. At
tlua moment, the low price of wheat and flour is
discouraging to the farmer. The latedrought ha*
been excessive throughout the whole continent,
perhaps, with the exception of several small dis
tricts. Vet, this is the first intimation we have
hail of an apprehended scarcity in any quarter, ap
proach ng to famine. Hat the other day the Raleigh
Register gave us to understand that in the eastern
and western counties of that State, the crop* were
good; and tiiat the severity of the drought was
seriously fell only in the middle counties. Th; res
pectability of the meeting at Warrenton forbid* us
to think that in that county there i* not sufficient
cause for the timely exercise of that benevolence
by which they seem to be actuated. But we hope,
with the Kditor of the Petersburg Intelligencer,
that their feare have been prematurely alarmed.
We have reason to believe that the corn crop in
Virginia will be an average one. Inmost of the
counties between tide water and the mountains,
and in the lower counties on the south side of
Jatne* River, it is aid to be very promising. Rut
in that portion of the elate in which corn is the j
principal crop for market, the drought has ken i
general, and more ecverrjy Mt. Wo have not
understood what has been the effect of the lata;
rain* throughout that region. It was a subject of
doub* With many, wbetfcer or not u had not fall*.!
•' xi l.:« to be of much benumb Several fiei-iV
in thi# vic.mty, in wh ah the corn bad turned yel
low, and promised but a taeagre product, have a*,
sutned quite a different appearance. They look
luxuriant, and the atalks are loaded with vigorous
shoots. Hut the rorn was planted late. The tas
sels had not become dry, nor the rind of the stalks,
hard—m:d even where this was the case, the quan
tity must be increased from the more perfect filling
of the ears, and the increased weight of the grain.
It has occurred more than once, within our tecol
lection, that, from local drought, the price of corn
in particular neighbourhood# has been as high as
t wo d>>| ars per buahel. It has been frequently sent
front this place an hundred miles up the river.—
The deficiencies of one county are always supplied
by the superabundance of another. So we trust it
will be in North Carolina. The county of War
ren border* on the Iloanoke, in the vicinity of
MecKlenburg ami Hriin&wictt in Virginia—and in
abont SO miles South of Petersbmg.
The Editor of the Connecticut ITcraM, pub
li hr- r (ext Iromthe Declaration of Independence;
and as a comment, cop.es an advertisement from
the National Intelligencer of the commitment of n
negro man; to which lie add* a string of idle rsnt.
S ill this sentimental fanatic editor coulJ, upon
occasion, chanut a homily on local leeling and sec
tional jealousy. 7 iiis miserable artifice was first
employed hv Mr. Walsh, in exci'ing the prejudi
ces of one portion of the Union against another. —
it dt I not take wrll with the better informed part |
oi'his readers; or hi* belter reflection convinced
him that tb<* trick was ill-natured mischief, andun
.worthy of a liberal mind. But the diversities of
the human character are so great, that what one
maji tiecnmes n«hatned of, another thinks very
smart, and practises without a bhi-h. We should
I gmc$.* that this Jlt'Tahl hditor maintains a species
; of authority over those who are under him, not less
tyrannical than the authority of a master elsewhere.
I I he coward is known by his blustering bravadoes;
I the hypocrite by hi*rant and whining. Are there
i not indices tiiat equally point out the DitaiA
| UOt'.UE?
The Editor of the Alexandria Herald was never
more mistaken in the rour-e of his life, than in his
supposition, that we »:e the sworn apologists of Mr.
Wirt or any other ir.au; or, that the paragraph on
wliich be comment* was dictated bv any “ pre-i
dential” or “ political prejudices.” Wc should
• Irxpt-e ourselves, were we to peitnit any prejudice
whatever to interfere with the claims of the Il
lustrious Dead. YY c leel »* much veneration as
j the Editor of the ller.dd himself for the
revolutionary services of Mr. John Adam*; but
w: can readily conceive that the opinion of Mr.
| Y\ ir1 respecting t,i* Administration ehuttld produce
j some, scr pies al out his undertaking the office of his
| prole-sed Eulogist. Mr. Wirt will come prepared
, to scatter laurels over every portion of Mr. J’»
life;i* it nothing, that he is compet ed to place
the two subjects of hi* Eulogy upon such unequal
| terms r and that he ha* to pass ovtr so important
j a pot lion ot Mr. Adams's life in absolute silence?
Will he make an incomplete Eulogy over
Mr. Adams; or will he transfer the office to
some more devoted Panegyrist ? This is the
question which Mr. W. probably had to decide;
&, let lom decide its* lie will, we caunotthink that
his resolution would be ” sufficient to sink” any
man “ to the lowest contempt.” The Balt. Patriot
affirms that “ Mr. YYr. did actually refuse wlwn first
called upon to couple Mr. A. with Mr. J.”_The
N. Journal denies that Mr. YV\ Ira* declined to
I unite their Eulogies; what the facts may 1m, we
! do not unJertake to say; hit we at least should
J think as well of Mr. WV maintaining the ground
: which he had originally taken, as ot his sul^C
I qoently changing it.
William Hale, E*q. of Wdkinaon, is elected to
Congress, in Mississippi. Tiie election was a close
lone. The returns received, and we believe from
[ all the counties, give Haile 12(15, Bing-unin 101(1,
Norton 920 and Grayson 911.

Thu Augusta Chronicle of th«s 0th, announce*
that the *• extensive Warehouse of Messrs. Cam
field & Bostnick, formerly occupied by Mr. John
Burton, adjoining the Planter*’ Hotel lot, on
the East, was struck by lightning, about nine
o’clock, and immediately after the lire broke
out at the South West corner; and before any
ellectual measure* could be taken to stop its
progress the whole building and its contents
were enveloped in one sheet of flame. It contained
upwards of two thousand three hundred bales of
Cotton, principally, we believe, from the neigh
borhood of Elbert County, all of which, except
irtg about 100 bale*-', were de.troyeJ, and arc i
now blazing with the utm»it fury. Very grtat '
credit is due to the extraordinary exertions
rnwle by the firemen and citizens, to pievem
the adjoining buildings from taking fire, and
had not the air been very calm and the rain pour,
ing down in torrents, the Planters’ Hotel, and most'
of the adjacent dwellings and warehouses, must !
inevitably have been lost.”
The severe drought has been «o extensive, over'
a large part of the globe, that a considerable deli- i
ciency of vegetable growth is thought to be the!
consequence. J^it year South Alr.ca was vcr-. ,
productive; this year, the reverse. The f flowing
is an extract of a let-r dated .Simon’s Town,
Cape of Good Hope, 10th April, 1*2(5:
“ We are nearly »t..rved. flour is dreadfully
scarce, and wheat now sells f(,r j,er j„„j 0( 10
