Tiie btig Mei.iM has arrived in safety at Pores,
with the donations despatched fiom the U. .S. for
'Jio relief ot' tiie Greeks. Her arrival at thi- time
is very opportune, as the inhabitants of the Morea
are said to he tn a state ol absolute starvation.—
The lollnwitig letter from Mr. King, who hits at -
lived at Poros in the llorald, will be read with in
terest by the friends of Greece. It was addressed
to the ladies ot the Grc» k Committee, thro’ whose
agency he was sent to that country.
Polios, Dili August, 182?.
I have at h-ng h arrived at the place of my des
tination, and my feet have the happiness to stand
on Grecian soil. My c>e« now behold an immense
tield “ white already to harvest,” and I rejoice
that 1 am sent hither to labour. We arrived in the
harbour of Poros, the 2ii'.h ult. in 00 days from N.
-York. Being quite ill the day of our arrival, arid
learning that it was very sickly in tiiis place, hav
ing no lodgings procured, and as the Loid’s day
was approaching, I concluded to remain on hoard
till Monday the 2Sth, at which time 1 came on
shore, and took lodgings in one ol the best houses
i could liud, tho’ there was in it neither bed, chair
nor table. Ti e same large trunk, which Mr.
-■Fisk and myself used in tho desert, an I for a long
time at Jerusalem for a table, 1 am now using a
galn for the same purpose.
The cargo ol supplies for tiie Greeks arrived in
goo:! order, and is now deposited in magazines fur
nished gratis by the Government ol Greece. We
have called on the President, his brother, (Count
V. A. Capo.listrias,) M.ivr.icordatfiSb the Governor
uf the Island, allot whom gave us the most polite
and cor«!i.il reception. The President lias also
been with us to examine the cargo, and seemed
highly gratified, tho’lie several times remarked,
tb it tiie tilings were quite too good.
Our first interview with him vt as to tne in the
highest degree interesting. After he had readsev
cral letters ot introduction whi h i had to him,
from Mr. Gallatin, from the Duchess de Broglie,
the Countess ?t. Aulaire, and others of hi-friends
in France and .'Witz viand, our conversation turn
ed upon thr preseid state ol Greece, the means to
lie employed to raise her from the low stale to
which she lias been reduced by Turkish tyranny,
war and anarchy; the importance of establishing
schools, of teaching the youth not only science,
but good morals and the religion ol the Gospel, &c.
&.C., which 1 have not now time to detail.
On my observing to his Excellency that we, so
far as means were concerned, owed our indepen
dence to tiie firm principl s of probity which our
forefa hers po.-si-ssed, who lied Iron: England to A- ;
in erica with tiie Bible in tli i. hand.:: ‘-I know it,”
- iid lie, “ 1 am wt II acquainted with your history.”
Alter a long conversation of tiiis kind, we came to
the subject ot the o n t o -c:.t out by the Greek
Committee ol New-York. The letter from that
Committee had been given to him by his brother,
previous to our seeing him, i.e was absent at tho
tune of our arrival, and our first business was |
transacted with his brother.
I was so unwell for several days after ny arid- I
val, that 1 could do little more than perforin the !
c'ltics which were absolutely necessary, such as i
calling on tiie authorities cl ihe place and making j
such arrangements as weie necessary for tiie un
loading tiie cargo, taking (lie bouse, tkc. Besides I
multitudes were calling on me to beg the Gospel. 1
know not that i ever aaw people so absolutely him- \
gry for books as they are in tiiis place. Not more I
than three or four have asked mo lor charity—
hundreds have asked me for hooks, i have many
things which interest me ex< eedingly, which I
wish to communicate, but cjmiot now, as the He
rald, by which I send this, is to sail at two o’
clock to-rnorrow morning. Suffice it to say that
the way is perfectly opened tor mo to establish
schools to almost any extent.
If you ran send me fifty thousand dollars I can
employ it for that purpose. Could not (he ladies ol
New York collect money enough for the building
n school house, a: tiie establishment of a school
ol superior order for iemales ir. Greece? Would
not such an acl of charity in the Ladies of your ci
ty be to them a more brilliant ornament than chains
of gold and pearls? I have to day had another in
terview with the President, and lie has invited me
to visit the schools which be lias established here,
mid (lien corns to 1 .ina, (where he is going to
morrow morning.) to be intiuduced by him to tiie
Bishop in that plate, and to visit die schools which
ho lias there established.

[ From the -Vetv York Gnsctle.1 i
A case of sonic interest was decided yesterday
morning, in the I’olico Office, before Justice Wy
man. A gentleman named John McMu11an,of
Baltimore, appeared before the Magistrate, with a
coloured woman, in charge of an officer, whom he
claimed as ids property. The woman was first,
examined, and gave the name of Martha Smith.—
She stated that she had been in this city' nearly
two years, and had married here about ten mouths
since, and could not tell r*.e clergyman’s name who
married her; that sho had never seen Mr. M’Mul
lan before Thursday night, and was not his slave;
that she was horn a slave in Soowhill, Maryland,
and there belonged to Mr. llamblelon.of that place.
She alio produced a certificate signed by William
Paulding, Esq. Mayor of this city, stating that sa
tisfactory evidence had been adduced before him,
that 11 Martha Smith,” was a free woman of color,
and recommending her to the protection of the
magistrates and citizens. At this stage of the pro
ceedings. the Mayor was sent for, who acknow
ledged the certificate to be genuine, hut he could
j not recognize the woman aa the individual to whom
• he certificate had been given. He also explained
to the magistrate the usual manner in which tho-c
certificates were granted.
A colored man named Moses Smith, -was then
called, and testified that he had known the woman
.'or about 20 years; that her name was not Smith,
hut Sarah Clarke, that lie had lived in the same
neighbourhood with her a number of years; when
he fir*t knew her, she was the property of Mr.
Tubman, a lich farmer in Maryland. Mr. M’
Mutlan, the claimant, married Mr. T’s daughter,
and on the division of the estate, Sarah with six
or seven other slaves, fell to his lot. He could
not be mistaken in the woman, os he had known
her from her infancy.
John M’Mullan testified that tba woman’s name
w<n .Sar ih Clark, and that he became possessed
ot her in the manner decrihed by the previous
witness. She ran away in December or January
hut, from Kent island. Queen Ann County, Mary
The Rev. James Smith, one of the Pastors of
St. Peter’s Church, in this city, testified to the
good character and respectability of Mr. M’Mul
lan, having been acquainted with him for a num
ber of years..
Two gentleman, members of the society of
!• fiends, then interfered ’in behalf of the woman,
and asked her if (here were no person in the city
who could confirm her story? She named two
i coloured women who she 9aid had known her for
nearly two years, and also, mentioned several
places where she had lived. The coloured wo
men were then sent for,hut on being examined,
did not confirm her story in any particular except
as to the fact of knowing her. The Magistrate
then asked the two gectlcincu if they were sat
isfied as to the claimant’s ownership, to which
they immediately replied in the affirmative. Mr.
Justice Wyman then gave a certificate in favor of
Mr. M’Mullan, and the woman was delivered up
to him.
1 he investigation of Ibis matter occupied sev
eral hours, and was conducted in a very proper
manner, every opportunity being afforded the
woman, to substantiate her own declarations,
which, however, she could not do, audall who
heard hpr statement were fully convinced of its
falsity.—The case brought together a concourse
ol coloured people, many of whom came into the
office, and others loitered iu and around the Hall.
Some indigna'ion was expressed against the co
loured man Smith, who, they said, had “betrayed”
her, and there were indications given of a de
sire to do personal injury to him Measures were,
however, taken to put him in a place of security
until he can be removed from the city.
Although we deprecate slavery as much as a
ny person, yet, as it does exist, it is very proper
that the rightful owner of such property should
not be deprived of it, when he makes a satisfac
tory claim as was the casein the present instance.
It is due to the members of the So. i ity ofFriends
"'ho undertook the examination of the case in be
half of the woman, to say that they conducted the
affair in the most liberal manner and fully acqui
esced in the proceedings.
Liverpool and Manchester Railway.—The rail
way commences at the port of Liverpool, at a point
in direct communication with the King’s and
Queen’s Docks. The line passes under the town
of Liverpool by a tunnel and inclined plane. This
magnificent archway, sixteen feet high and twenty
two feet wide, is cut through the solid rock for the
enormous length of 2243 yards, the inclined plane
rising one foot in forty-nine. The steep asceut of
Liverpool is thus avoided, and all interference with
the general business of the streets is thus effectu
ally prevented. The excavations of this stupendu
ous work have been going on at several points at
the same time; and the precision with which the
junctions of the different parts have been effected,
in some cases not varying two inches, offers n
most remarkable example of the certainly of set-1
entitle arrangement. The road through the tun !
ncl, which we thus see is about a mile and a quar
ter long, comes into the day-light at the fop of the
high hill (Edge HilJj looking down upon Liverpool.
A deep excavation through the elevated ground
beyond this point offers an interes’iug example of
liic triumph of man over physical difficulties. Se
veral miles onward, the roadway passes over a
moss; and here, by a steady and cautious system
of cuttings and embankments, the railway has
been laid down successively upon a soil which
appeared as treacherous as the sands of the desert.
1 he valley tin **-gli which the river Sancey iun<
is crossed by an enormous viaduct, consisting of
embankments and arches built upon piles of ex
traordinary magnitude. Hence, to Manchester,
the line does not present any peculiar difficulties.
The whole cost of this grand work will be about
£i/00,000. [London Paper.
As j sample of the grandiloquence with which
horse races arc described in tbe London journals,
we subjoin tbe finishing paragraph of a long ac
count in the London Morning Chronicle o',T the
22d ult. ot the Doncaster sped.
•' Thus closed a meeting of unparalleled inter
rest, not only to Yorkshire, of which it is, de
servedly, the pride and boast, but (o all KngJand_
a meeting at once animating ami delighting, a vast
concourse of both sexe s and of all classes. Tin* Led
ger-day was a complete holiday, and never was
witnessed such a spectacle as it presented; (lie
procession of equipages from the Mansion-house
and New Mclting-iooms was ceaseless; and asdense
*s m supply a constant-tream to both sides of the
Grand l'avillion, (hat received tins assemblage of
fashion. Moderate persons estimate that iwire
the number of spectators were on Ihe stand and
about tbe ground as collected on the Inst St. Led
ger-day, which itself boasted of a splendid atten
dance; others could certainly find a limit to (heir
estimates: tut all agree, that a more glorious exhi
bition, never, on any occasion, appeared at Don
caster or nny other races. The day was through
out one ofdx77ling brightness arid kindling warmth,
which made the whole multitude sparkle with
| glee, wc should mention, however, that some ha
ter* r.f huionn pleasure—some would-be taint*,
had place conspicuously on the road to the rare
course, and m the midst of this hij py assemblage,
