LATEST FROM CADIZ.
The ship Canton which arrived at New a 'fork. on Saturday, sailed from Cadiz on ggp the 10th of last month, to which date, in usive, we have newspapers, letters, and -erbal intelligence. They generally con cur, in stating that the place was well supplied with provisions, and th,at there had been no indications of a disposition to relax the Measur,£.of defence. Some, however, entertained' the opinion .that the place would not long hold out, ana that there was dot .virtue enough in the people of Spain to support, or live under a free Government. Eiego is said, co Have become unpopular. Cadiz was biockaddPby 2 ships’of the one, 3 frigates, 2 sloops of war, 1 schoo ner, and 4 gun boat, anchored off the. har bor. The brig Win. Gray had been or dered offi and proceeded to Malaga. An English brig,laden with provisions, which attempted to go in after being ordered off, was boarded from the squadron, most of Her cargo thrown o verboard, and the .residue destroyed with salt water. There had been no attempt to carry off the King from Cadiz as stated in our last London papers. The King w-as lodged m apartments in the Custom House. Mr. Apjfleton, the American Charge d’Affaires, was at Cadiz. Capt. Macauley, of the Canton, states that it was understood there was three months supply of provisions in Cadiz, and numerous arrivals there daily. At Algesiras, and ban rernando there was a plentiful supply, We learn, from the Cadiz papers, that ‘be Cortes were laboriously engaged in the discussion of such projects as might tend to aid the Constitutional cause. In the sitting of July 3d, it was propo sed to admit the importation into Spain of the produce of Cuba, by Foreign ves sels, on paying an additional duty of 4 per cent. The Royal George Steam Packet arriv ed at Lisbon on the 1st of July, from Lon don, Corunna, and Lisbon—-among the passengers were Col. Doyle, and the U. States5 Secretary of Legation at Lisbon, with despatches. The papers say, that Madrid was suf fering for every thing, except houses and water—provisions of all kinds being scarce and dear. CADIZ, JULY 10. Admiral Hammelin, commander of the French squadron off this port, on the 8th rust gave notice-to the Fishermen, that, according to instructions from his go vernment, he was under the?,painful neces sity of putting a stop to their business, in order to prevent the introduction of provisions into Cadiz. Three fishing boats belonging to Rota and captured by the French, have sur prised three other fishing boats coming from the Levant, which were captured. A Sardinian merchantman, with a car go of 500 quintals codfish, from Lisbon, was detained by one of the French block ading squadron about 3 leagues from Ca diz, and compelled to throw her cargo overboard, when she was permitted to .proceed. july 2.'—A column of 1500 French in fantry and some cavalry, set off from St. Mary’s yesterday for Port Real. Letters from St. Mary’s say, the. whole force des tined to the siege of Cadiz, is 20,000 men. July 3.—Several private letters receiv ed to-day from Corunna, state that a French division of 6000 men, had made a precipitate retreat across the Pyren nees. july 4.—Ry a despatch from his Excel tencyDon Juan Jabat, our Minister at Lon don, we learn that a fleet-sailing English merchant ship, sailed from that port on the 11th of June for Samtona, laden with provisions and- arms,, under the Patriot Don Miguel Eutron. The English cor vette Fanny would sail the following week for Vigo, with 600CF muskets, and as many cartridge boxes, to he placed at the disposal of General Morillo, to arm his recruits, which exceed 7000 men. July 5.—An officer arrived this morn ing with despatches from General Zayas, commander of the third army of opera tions. The despatches communicate fa vorable intelligence—the army was rapid ly moving, and the presence of the valiant Chief, who destroyed Besseires and awed Vallin, has inspired fresh vigor in the troops. We expect to see them in a few days crowned with.their laurels. Gen. Z. offers to send to Gallicia all the warlike implements necessary to equip a respect able army in that province, At 2 o’clock this morning a column of 2000 men started from San Fernando for Chiellana in order to destroy some houses ■which might serve to shelter the works of the enemy. Our troops offered them battle, which the French declined. They houses were destroyed by our pioneers, who then returned quietly to their quar ters. july 10.—The Courier from the Levant has brought letters from Malaga of the 2d iust. and Grenada of the 29th. The state that Gen. Zavas was inLucena; those from Grenada assert positively that Ballesteros had arrived in that city; but we have not seen any thing which would authorize the belief that he was there on that day. It is said that three couriers from Ma drid have not arrived at Seville, which is attributed to their having- been inter cepted by parties of the Patriots. SAN FERNANDO, JULY 3. Every thing goes on with activity, the warehouses are filled with provisions, and the troops are improving themselves every spare moment. The two battalions of city militia have been ordered to join the army. Tracadero has been conside rably reinfarced. . G RENA CO, JUNE 26. General Placentia has assumed the com mand of this the 9th district. We should be pleased t-o observe more activity, more energy, and its a word, more decision in Gen. Tacon. Placentia is about assem bling a large body of troops in the imme diate neighborhood of this capital. LATEST FROM ENGLAND. NEW YORE, AUG. 25. We have received by the Minerva, Capt, Wilson, Liverpool papers of the 10th, and London to the evening of the. 8th ult. The sales of Cotton at Liverpool had continued extensive, and prices had ad vanced. It is stated that the 10th French regi ment in Spain has lost the greatest pro portion of its men, The sum of ^5000 has been paid to the Spanish Relief Committee in London, be ing the subscription of an anonymous f« dividual. The Reciprocity Duties Bill, passed the House of Commons on the 4th of Ju ly, 75 to 15. The Low Merchant’s Bill has also passed. The Irish Insurrection Bill passed thro’ a committee of the House of Lords. The French squadron olf Cadiz have sent in a flag declaring the port in a state of blockade. Vessels would be al lowed to leave the port provided they had Spanish subjects on board. The Viceroy of Egypt had been order ed to send troops to join the Turkish forces, but a portion of his soldiers, sta tioned in the Delta, had revolted, and he had been compelled to disobey his order and detain his fleet. Sir Robert Wilson and his English companions arrived at Vigo on the 15th June. They left Oporto on the 6th, pro ceeded to Braga, where they were amus ed by the populace, detained two days, and were obliged to return to Oporto un der a military guard. Thence they were sent off without being allowed a mo merit's rest, by way of Vienna. Sir Robert has published an address to the Portuguese since his arrival at Vigo, lamenting the change that has taken place in that king dom, and complaining of the attempt that was made at Braga to assassinate him. ■ TEN DAYS LATER FROM' EUROPE. NEW YORK, AU0. 26. The fast sailing ship Howard, Captain Holdredge, arrived at this port last even ing, in. 34 days from Havre. . By this-ar rival, the editors of the Commercial Ad vertiser have received regular flies of Pa ris and Havre papers to the 18th of July inclusive; and we have again devoted our columns almost exclusively to trans lations therefrom. Clouds and darkness yet hang over the affairs of Spain. The Journal dir Commerce well remarks, “The history of the civilized world scarce pre sents such an example of confusion and shocking anarchy. The wars of princi ples alone produced thesep-esults. Spain is precisely in the same situation as France found herself during the days of the League. We restore now to Spain what she gave to us.” The defection of Morillo from the CV: - stitutional cause, is amply confirmed, and that instead of remaining neutral between the two powers, (the Cortes and the Re gency,) it is now added that he has gone over to the French with 3000 of his troops. We were, therefore, correct in our suppo sition ot yesterday, that the conduct oi this officer was not known at Cadiz, at the date of our latest Cadiz papers. We have given, among our translations, the letter of Morillo to Quiroga at length. It is said that, on the 3d, he published a new and very energetic proclamation against the Cortes, and another against the con duct of Quiroga. Quiroga has promised rewards to all the soldiers who should follow him, and has published a decree Containing twelve articles against those who have abandoned the Constitutional cause, which strikes terror into those under Mina, Velasco, andTorrijos. In Catalonia, the Constitutionalists still evince a disposition to oppose the French j inch by inch. It will he seen by the de spatch from Marshal Moncey., that, in marching to invest Barcelona on the.9th, the Fourth Corps had a sharp action at Molins del Key and at Martorel, with the troops of Milans and Lloberas, who were disposed to raise the blockade of Barce lona. The Spaniards took shelter under the walls of Barcelona, which place was to be completely invested on the follow ing-day. The defection of Morillo produced a sensible effect on the French funds, by causing them to rise. It'.is states he w ever, that they had subsequently declined, in consequence of the rumor that Balias-, teros and Lopes Banos had re-taken Se ville. In addition to the despatch which we have given below from Marshal Mon cey, our translator has furnished us with another long one, of an antecedent date, (July 4,) but which we deem it unneces sary to publish at length. It commences by giving a pompous account of two sor ties which had been made by the garri son shut up in Figueras, in both of which they were repulsed, with a very trifling loss on each side. We are next i» fornaed’o-fficially of the Seod’Urgel being invested by Baron d’Eroles, from whence, however, Mina had fled, leaving -behind in the fortress the troops who escaped with him from the action with Donnadieu on the 14th and 15th of June, and taking with him 7 or f0.0. of the former garrison. Mina arrived at Taragona, sick, arid, on the 26th of June, started again for Bar celona. Baron d’Eroles left the Sco in vested by a small force under Gen. Ra magosa. On the 28th of June, a sortie was made, which was repulsed ; but it was judged expedient to reinforce the block ade with another battalion of the line. The Duke San Carlos, Ambassador from the Regency to the Court of France, was presented to the king on the 10th of July, and received a,public audience. He was afterwards conducted to the palace of the Tuilleries in the king’s equipages, and presented to the royal family. The Duke’s speech on this occasion, and the answer of the king, will be given to-mor row. Gen. Man^o had died at Reuss, of a complaint in the chest. This is a new loss for the Constitutionalists. There have been sortie disturbances at Malaga, and some lost their lives; it was quelled by the intervention ..of t'ne regular troops and militia. Two; of the ringleaders were condemned to death by a court martial, and shot nest day. A Bayonne letter'says “ much talk had been had with regard to che sieges of St. Sebastian and Pampeluna ; but we in Bayonne see nothing of those trains of ar tillery which were to operate in the siege none have arrived here as yet.’5 The latest accounts received at Paris from Cadiz were of the 8th July—mot so late by two days as were received here and published yesterday. A letter of the 2d mentions that the late sittings of the Cortes have been very tempestuous ; that the question of surrendering was agitated; that the individuals opposed it, and the militia cried out —-Death to-th.s King, A Cadis paragraph of the 7th says, “ the King- who had already been forced to give to the militia who took part in the affair of the 7th July, a particular de coration, has conferred a new decoration oil them, which brings to mind the three charges they made on the Spanish guards, and each of them attached by a pension of two reals per day.” The defection of the Constitutional v Genera! Saurfield, is. announced in the Paris papers of the 4th. A rumor reached London the 12th of July, that there had been a counter-revo lution in Portugal in favor of the Consti tutional system. Among our extracts will be found sun dry interesting articles relating to the Greeks and Turks. In Greece, and Greece only, a ray of sunshine breaks thro’ the general gloom of European des potism. «, -seC'f’SjDCQSJl LATE FROM GIBRALTAR. Captain Tiers, of the brig Ruth, ar lived at Philadelphia in 25 days from Gibraltar, informs the Editor of the Au rora, that a detachment of the French army was encamped within two miles of St. Roque, on the 25th of July. The commander, uatne not remembered, sent a ilag into Algesiras, demanding the sur render of that place, but which was re fused by the governor. The women and children had fled from St. Roque, in or der to escape the dangers of the expect ed attack, and had encamped on the beach of the neutral ground. The Con gress frigate sailed on the 23d for Cadiz with Mr. Nelson and family. Mr. Rod ney was at Gibraltar with his family all in good health. Captain Tiers brings despatches to government from Mr. Rod ney. A number of French and Dutch men of war were lying at Gibraltar when the Ruth sailed. i o the above we are enabled to add the following- extract of a private letter dated “ Gibraltar, July 22.—Cadiz still holds out, and there is not much proba bility of its surrendering. It is reported that a battle has been gained by the Con stitutionalists over the French in Catalo nia. General Lallemand is said to be in the neighbourhood of Valencia, with a good force. Terriffe, Algesiras and St. Roque are in the possession of the Con titutionalists, so that the cause of the Spaniards is not desperated3 Extract of a letter from Havre, July 2 Oth. “You will see that Mina is not yet dead. Morillo has followed the example of Abisbal, and is said to have carried with him three thousand men If he had been faithful 'much might have bee;; iu Galllcia to ann-ov the French. The na ture'of the ground and its .proximity to England, from whom supplies are con stantly going, might have enabled the Constitutional party, perhaps, to have turned the scale. As matters stand there, I fear they cannot hold out long. The French' have too much money ; still Qui mga may give them trouble in that quar ter.”—! jY. Y. American. FROM THE MEDITERRANEAN. BALTIMORE, AUG. 29. By the brig Midasij Captain Dickinson, at this port from Smyrna, avc learn that a vessel immediately from Negroposit had brought intelligence to Smyrna, that, on or about the first of June, the Turks had landed an army of five thousand men at Esparmatore, (Negropont) the whole of whom had been cut to /iiec.es or taken fir is oners by the Greeks. I he Algerine, 1 urusxan, .Egyptian, ana Turkish fleet consists of about a hundred and fifty to a hundred and sixty sail of vessels. TheTurks have no ships of the line in their Met this summer, they be-, ing fearful of the Greek fireships, of which the Greeks have about 15. On the 17th Juue Capt. Dickinson saw the Greek fleet of 135 sail, between the Is lands of Mytilene and Ipsara, steering for the Gulf of Smyrna. There was not one ship among them—about 40 or 50 sail of brigs and schooners, and the rest smaller. At Milo, Captain D. was in formed that the Turkish fleet had been seen ofl the Island about the Sth of June, standing towards Candia. It was said the instructions of the Captain Pacha embraced the power of exterminating the Greeks if possible, or of making peace with them. It was alscr reported that if something decisive was not effected this summer, he would not return to Constan tinople, but would make his winter quar ters at Smyrna Captain B. reports that every part of the Mediterranean was full of small crui zers or boats, many of which were be lieved to be pirates. Off Tunis he saw two of them which shewed the Tunisian flag—-they bore down towards him, but owing to a fine breeze and the appearance of his vessel, they soon hauled off. Two days afterwards he saw another, which : was supposed lo be a fisherman, until the latter fired a gun and hoisted French co lours. He commenced a chace after the Midas, which was continued for three hours, and abandoned. The Midas experienced much calm weather on the pass'kge,—\_Amer. NEW YORK, AUG. 27.

We learn, by a vessel arrived at New Fork 22 days from Tampico, it was re ported that St; Anne, who revolted against the government, has surrendered so for ces sent against him at San Luis Potcsi, before which place he had encamped his army. Previous to his surrender, he had seized Spanish property to a considera ble amount on the road to Tampico.
