Mansur. Catalini—Mr. Gardner, in his

II musician, below mediocrity, possessing
scarcely the knowledge of a third rate per
former; but by a quick |iereeption she con
cealed these defects even from the learned.
Her origin, he adds, was that of a match(girl
in Rome, yet in her career she visited every
court in Europe, where the most profuse pre
sents were showered upon her. Having a

, her voice and beauty gone, she has retired to

I I.nrenzo Teyxeyro, an inhabitant ol
Granada, who had performed the dan
gerous service of communicating intel
ligence to the nearest Spanish Gene
i ral, was discovered, and might have sa
ved his life if he had named the per
sons through whom the Communica
tion was earned on ; but he was true tti
them as lie had been to hia country,
and suffered death contentedly, 'flic
other instance was attended with tra
gic circumstance*, (.'apt. Vincente
Moreno, who was serving with the
muentaineera of Uoad a, was made pris
oner, carried to Granada, and there had
I the alternative of suffering by the hang
man, or entering into the intruder’s
service. Ills wife and four children
were, by the General's orders, brought
to him when lie was upon the scaffold,
to see if their entreaties would shake
[Hia resolutions ; but Moreno, with the
I roursge of a martyr,bade her withdraw
and teach her sou* to remember the ex
ample which he was about to give them,
[and to serve their couutry as. he had
| done, honorably and dutifully to the
| last. This murder provoked a public
; retaliation which the Spaniards seldom
exercised, but, when they did, upon a
j tremendous scale. Gouzolez.who was
a member of the Cortes for Jaeu. had
‘served with Moreno, and loved him a*
1 such a man deserved to be loved ; and
I by his orders seventy French prisoners
were put to death at Mai bells. S«i
wicked a system as that which Bona
pane’s generals unrelentingly pursued
«.wuiti iiu h iicrr mvrurcn exercised w itli
so little prospect of success, ami sucli
sure eflect oi calling forth a dreadful
j vengeance, as among the Spaniards.
Against such enemies they considered
all means lawful; this was the feeling
1 not here alune, but throughout the bo
jdy of the nation; the treacherous coni
I mcncenient of the war on the part of the
French, and the systematic cruelty with
which it had been rarried on, discharg
ed them, they thought, from all obser
vances uf good faith or humanity to
warda them ; and upon this principle
they acted to its full extent. The la
borer at his work in the fields or gar
dens had a musket concealed at hand,
with which to mark the Frenchman
whom ill-fortune might bring within
hia reach. Bo vs, too young to be sus
pected of any treachery, would lead a
party of the invaders into some fatal
ambuscade; women were stationed to
give the signal for beginning the slaugh
ter, and that signal was sometimes the
hymn of the Virgin! Not fewer than
8,000 French are said to have been
cut oft' in the mountains of Honda.
Wm. Tell, who was one of the sworn
at Hath,and noted for his high and dar
ing spirit, exposed himself to arrest by
Gestler’s myrmidons, for passing the
hat without obeisance. Whispers of
conspiracy had already reached the
vogt. and he expected to extract some
further evidence from Tell upon the
subject. Offended by the man’s ob
stinate silence, he gave loose to his
tyrannical liumar, and knowing that
Tell was a good archer, commanded
him to shoot from a distance at an ap
ple on the head ofhis child. God, says
an old chronicler, was with hitn; and
the vogt, who had not expected such a
specimen of skill and fortune, now cast
about for new waya to entrap the ob
ject ofhis malice; and seeing a second
arrow in his quiver, a«ked him what
that was for r Tell replied evasively,
that surh was theosunl practice of arch
ers. Not content with this reply, the
vogt pressed on him farther, and as
aured him of his life whatever the arrow
might have been meant for. “ Vogt,”
said 'Jell, “had I shot my child, the
second shaft was for thee; and be sure
I should not have missed my mark the
second time.” Transported with raoe,
nm unmixeu with (error, tiessler ex
claimed, “Tel!! I have promised (hce
life.but thou shall pass it in a dungeon.”
Accordingly, he took a boat with his
captive, intending to transport him a
cross the lake to Kussnacht in Sclmyt/,
in defiance of the common right of the
district, which provided that its natives
should not be kept in confinement be
yond its borders. A sudden storm
on the lake overtook the party, and
t»e**ler was obliged to give orders to
loose Tell from his fetters, and com
mit the helm to his hands, as he was
known for a skilful steersman.* Tell
guided the vessel to the foot of the great
Axenhurg, where a ledge of rinks, dis
tinguished to this dav as Tell"* plat
form. presented itself as the only land
ing place for leagues around Here he
sieged his cross bow, and escaped by
a daring leap, leaving the skiff to wres

ed, ami two daggers about Ilia bndyi and, as
evidence of the civiliM'ton and manners
there, I will simply state two facta that oc
curred while they were as his gurala, under
their eye sight. One of tha Greek officers
being intoxicated, broke a plate, and became
, very noisy and boisterous, Colocotroni /Aries
' drtired him, in a rough way, to he quiet, or
leave the table. On Iris still continuing and
annoying the party, the Chief pulled out Ins
' pistols, cocked one, and levelled it at him,
and said lie would shoot him unless lie left
i the party. Upon that hi* brothe* officer*
i carried him away 1 hr neat day Colucwtro
m*a Staff’ invited our officers to a little part),
at winch a il.apute occurred between two
Greek officers. In the discussion, a direct
contradiction ensued; upon this the officer
wlm wan contradicted, without preface, took
lu« tnstol and deliberately shot hia brother
officer w in) had given film the lie- No at
tempt was made to take the murderer into
custody i the affair waa looked upon as a mat
ter of every day occurrence. Our officers
were to shucked at this, that they exeuned
themselves from staving another day, and re
tained forthwith to Zant* Happily for hu
< inanity, such a state of society cannot exist
1 long.
We regret having to state that a very aeri
i oils disturbance look place at llangslore, on
Monday the 5th instant. This being a grand
| feast day of the Muaswlmew. they proceeded
, to their place for worship, when to their hor
j ror they discovered a dead pig at the princi
pal entrance, ami the w*!ls of their mosqua
- defiled with crosses, made evidently with the
blood of the unclean beast; from tbe circum
stances of tbe crosses, their Suspicions were
fixed on the native and Portuguese Catholics
as being the perpetrators of this outrage —
They rushed in a large body to the Roman
j Catholic Chapel, pulled down and destroyed
i the whole cf the inside, and were about com
mencing the destmetion of the walls, from
which they were alone prevented by the ar
rival of a troop of Ins Majesty's 13th Tight
Dragoons, and detachments of his Majesty's
j62d Regiment and Native Infantry. 1 he Na
i live Infantry took possession of the building,
J and remained there that night, and the lol
; lowing day, w lulst the cantonment Basaarr,
&c were pairuled by his Majesty's 13th Tight
Dragoons. A reward of 5f<0 rupees has been
offered for the apprehension of tbe person
I or persons concerned in this wanton outrage.
