TIIE FIIEE PRESS.
WEDNE SB AY,' JUNE -26, 1822. Among the appointments recently made by the President of the United States, we •are pleased to find the following: George Ml Glassin, Surveyor and Inspec tor of the Revenue for the port of St. Johns, district of St. Augustine. Mr. M£Glassin was an officer in the late fivar, and was distinguished on several oc casions for his gallantry and spirit of en terprise. He has more recently been known as editor of the Winchester Re publican, and has ever been highly res pected and esteemed. It is gratifying to see merit thus rewarded. New Publications.—The reader will find, in our advertising columns, propo sals for several new works, which are wor thy the attention of the patrons of litera ture. The first is a periodical paper, to be conducted by Mrs. Colvin, of the City of Washington. This work deserves en couragemeht, as well on account of the ability of its editor as of her amiable cha racter and private worth. She will, no doubt be aided in her labors by the lite •*xfry fair of the Metropolis. We wish her the most ample success. The second is a small volume proposed to be published by Mr, Bingham, of Rock ville, Md. It is the “ Select Remains” of it Rev. John Mason. From the success i 3 already met with, and the high clia r r given of it by eminent men, there xist no doubt of its being an accept treat to a large portion of the religi w community, and to the admirers of liberal principles generally. The third is a work (also proposed by Mr. Bingham) which will be peculiarly interesting to the politician and patriot. It is a collection of the “ Presidents’ Speeches,"' See. As models of composi tion, these papers hold the first rank, and # as they will form a correct and impres sive summary of the most important events of our infant republic, they will be viewed with pride by every American. What ever emanates from the pens of such dis tinguished authors should be cherished and perpetuated for the benefit of man kind ; we, therefore, feel confident that all who prize their country’s welfare will fur nish themselves with a copy of this work. As an agent is now here,who will receive subscriptions to the two last-named publi cations, those who wish to patronize them l^yilLhaye-a fa vorable occasion of doing so. aty Clay is announced as a candi f].,h the 3d Congressional district of Rocky. Amuel Bell is chosen to be a Senator (/he United States, from the state of 7w( Hampshire, vice Mr. Morril,-whose nn of service will expire on the 4th day March next. Mr. B. was, at the time f his election, Governor of the State. The North Carolina Register says, 11 We learn that our late Governor, John Branch, Esq. instantly declined the ac ceptance of the office of a Judge in West Florida, to which he was lately appointed by the President and Senate of the United States.” WASHINGTON, JUNE 20. Don Manuel Torres, Charge D’Affaires from the Republic of Colombia, was yes terday presented to the president of the U. States, by the Secretary of State. The estimable character and correct conduct of this gentleman, who has long been known in the United States, contri bute to unusual interest to this 'cumstance of his ^ect in a aipio ’’epublics appointed Gr of Con rthe Mexican drived at his des ran a resided in the years ago ; he was -retaries of the. Congress C5 with much experience of the native of Mexico also, and of the moral and political principles. \_Aurora. We have just received information that | the hon. William Lowndes, on his return i Vom Washington was thrown out of the i fetage, and seriously injured—he was con- ■ vtyed, in an easy carriage, to his residence, ..and considerable doubts of his recovery Entertained-—he was, we understand, in ery delicate health previous to the acci ! Et.—\Lioanokc Sent, \ THE BID EE. WASHINGTON, JUNE 13. The reports by the mail of Monday gave us every reason to believe in the fatal termination of the duel between Mr. McDuffie, the Representative in Con gress from South Corolina, and a citizen ot the state of Georgia. Entertaining’ high respect for the talent and personal character of Mr. McDuffie, we have most sincere pleasure in being able to relieve the anxiety of his friends by the publi cation of the following: “ CHARLESTON JUNE 12*—11 O’CLOCK. “ We have been obligingly favoi’ed with the following extract of a letter received this day from the Hon. Geo. McDuffie, which augurs the most favorable hopes of his final recovery : sister’s FERRY, JUNE S. “ The contest is over—I am wounded, but not dangerously—but four hours have elapsed, and I feel perfectly comfortable. The bullet entered obliquely into the back, just below the short ribs. Both Sur geons agree that there is no danger—and my own feelings indicate the same. We shall start this evening, and move slowly homeward.” This intelligence will be more accepta ble, because, the first account was. that the wound received by Mr. McDuffie was mortal, and so stated as to gain general belief.—[Nat. Ini. Pev. Mr. Sumerjield.—The Philadel phia Gazette of Saturday last, states that j this gentleman is so far recovered from i his late indisposition as to encourage his i friends to believe that he will soon be able I to resume his valuable and useful labours. ! His father, sister and brother are now | with him, and his physicians, entertain the most sanguine hopes of a restoration to his usual state of health. NORFOLK, JUNE 17. The U. S. corvette John Adams, capt. Renshaw, now fitting out at the Navy Yard at Gosport, will.sail hence, in a few days, for the Delaware, for the purpose of accompanying the North Carolina 74 to this port. The North Carolina is to be laid up at Gosport. The John Adams will then sail on a cruise, probably in the West India seas. The U. S. schr. Alligator, Lieut. Com mandant William H. Allen, left her an chorage between the forts, on Saturday afternoon, and dropped down to Hampton Roads, whence she proceeded to sea yes terday morning, bound to New-York. THE CROPS. The Wheeling Gazette (of Brooke county, Va.) states on the 1st inst. that “ the season thus far has been remarkably fine; grain of every kind looks well m this neighbourhood, 8c is unusually forward.” Another Prospect.—The grain harvest in' New Jersey is represented to be highly promising, and the fruit trees uncom monly abundant. HILLSBOROUGH, (o.) JUNE 13. The approaching harvest bids fair to reward the husbandman most amply. The crops of Wheat, Rye and Oats were ne ver more promising—indeed some com plaint is made of the over-luxuriant growth of the crops, as they will be liable to fall down, and thereby render the cut ting or gathering more difficult. The Indian Corn, Flax, See. except where de predations have been committed by the worms, are represented to be very prom ising. Statistics.—The following table is given in the foreign journals, as an approxima tion to a comparative census of the popu lation of the Greeks and Turks in Turkey in Europe : Macedonia Thessaly Albania Morea Bulgaria Wallachia J Moldavia Servia Bosnia & dependents Greeks. Turks. 724.000 241,600 579.000 89,000 691.000 363,000 300.000 35,000 620.000 170,000 360.000 18,000 225.000 30,000 780,600 160,000 420.000 140,000 4,699,000 1,246,900 Thus it appears that the Greeks are within a fraction of four times as numer ous as the Turks in Europe. WVtVVi/V The editor of one of the newspapers of Brazil, in mentioning' that the Portuguese Cortes had passed a resolution that the Prince Royal should travel in Europe and visit the principal courts, for the purpose of maturing his political education, ob serves that it would have been much bet ter to assign the United States of Ameri ca as the theatre of his travels: for, here, he would learn the true principles of li berty, and witness the true science of go vernment in full operation.—Com. Adv. SALEM, JUNE 15. A man advanced in years, we learn, has been committed to gaol in Ipswich, charg ed with having committed a crime of the most heinous nature upon the person of a female, not more than ten years of age, in the town of Essex.

BOARD OF HEALTH. %CT° At a meeting of the Board, on the | 22d instant, the following proceedings took place, and were ordered to be pub lished, viz: I Whereas the Board find it impossible to identify the owners of Hogs running at large, in order to have the regulations of I the Board fully complied with; and find ' ing* that the styes cannot be kept in such : state of cleanliness as to prevent offensive smells arising therefrom ; it is therefore Resolved, That the regulation prohibiting Hogs from running at large in the streets, be forthwith repealed. The Board feeling anxious to contri | bute, by all fair means, to the health and ; comfort of the town, respectfully recom mend that not more than one hog be kept by each family, as the inconvenience and filth produced by large numbers of them . unrestrained must be obvious to every one.

PROPOSALS BY J. A. BINGHAM, For Re-Pub l is king, by Subscription^ ct S?nall Religious Work, entitled MASON’S REMAINS, OR THE Christian’s Pocket Companion. FjnHERE are many English works of i merit, which are scarcely to be found in the United States—and among this class u The Select Remains of the Rev„ John Mason” hold an exalted station. Mr. Mason was a man of more than ordinary talents and learning; but particularly eminent as a Christian. He .was a mini ster of the established church of England, yet destitute of those sectarian prejudi ces which often produce dissentions a mong real Christians. For a continued sense of religion on the soul, for love of God, and zeal for his holy cause, he had few equals. The writings of that man could not want merit of whom Baxter could say, “ He was the Glory bf the Church of England.” The most eminent Divines in every part of the United States where the work has been known, have said all in its favor that language coul«l^express. With re gard to its merits and usefulness, Chris tians of every denomination have expres sed the same opinions, and the same sen ments... It will be neatly printed on good paper and handsome type, and contain about 230 pages 18 mo. It will be dons up in plain binding, and lettered, and delivered to subscribers at 50 cefits per copy. In Calf 75 cents— Extra Calf Q1. Payable on delivery. |CP The above work has already met with great encouragvnent, and will shortly be put to press. Rockville, Md. June, 1822.

To be accompanied by copious notes, illustrative of the principles, motives, and results, of these interesting Docu ments. TO BE EDITED, FOR THE PUBLISRER, B Y JOHN B. COL VIJV. As the mere designation of the intend ed contents of the work sufficiently ex plains its object, it is not deemed requi site to enlarge upon the utility of such a publication, farther than to say, that those ; persons in the United States who are de sirous of being well acquainted with the | political and legislative history of their | country, cannot, for that purpose, pro I cure a book of greater utility, or more in j structive than the one proposed. CONDITIONS. 1. The volume ’will contain between 6 If 700 pages octavo, printed on good pa~ per, with new and handsome type. 2.
