The fate of the gallant Capt. Allbn, of the
4lhgutort has excited the keenest regret, and
deepest feelings of aohorrence towards its au
thors, in the breast of every member of this
community,—May his death have the effect to
open the eyes of our government to t^ie necessi
ty ofiletnanding from the -Public- Authorities
of Cuoa, protection for the lives,#ud property
of our fcitizens—11 they cannot, or will not, j
guard their shores and soil from pollution by
Uiese Buccaneers, other nations must do it—!
by adopting the only possible means ot putting
an end to their viilanies—that oi landing and
establishing military posts upon the island, in
the vicinity of their haunts ; and by hanging
up every vagaboud in Havana, Mantanzas, <xc»
who shall be found in possession of their plun
der. In this business, the good old maxim
should be regarded—f*the,receiver is as bad as
iheUieif,” , .

Charleston Nov* 27.—By the Eliza Polly,
Arrived below last evening, we have received
Havana papers to 17th inst. The American
ship Victor, 35 days from Cadiz, bound to Vera
Cruz, called off Havana on the 14tn, bringing
date* from Madrid oPthe 2bth September.
The new Minister from Great Britain to
Spain, Sir W. A’Cocrt, arrived at; Madrid
on the 26th September, and the Universal of

the Spanish people remains and will remain,
i upon the most friendly footing
The king Of Spain issued an address to his
subjects on the 16th of September, consisting
of his usual professions, promises, 6zc. It is
long, and it any thing worth remarking is to
be found in it, we shall notice it to-morrow.
Charleston, Nov. 28.—By the Lend we have
received,'* from our correspondent at St.
Thomas’ papers of that Island to the 8th inst.
inclusive, and Barbadoes papers of j the 26th
October. To the politeness of Mr. Eerr, a
passenger in the Leod, we are indebted for a file
of the Guianna Chronicle to the 7th October.
The U. S. brig Spar . Capt. Wilkinson,
touched at St. 'Thomas’ and sailed on the 3d
inst. We regret to learn that there was much
sickness on board the Spark. Walter New
comb, one of her officers, died at St. Thomas’
on the tth of November, and bis femaieg were
interred next morning with military honors.
Accounts from Laguira Otthe30th Oct. had

Trieste, Sept 30—-The new? ol a
naval victory gained by the Greeks, is
fully confirmed to day- The encounter
took place in the Straits of /tacca-Sil ta,
between Negiopont and Andres. The
Turkish fleet, entangled in a narrow chan
nel, full ol rocks and shoals, and attacked
unawares, fought with disadvantage.—
Two frigates were grounded on the coasts
of Chyipi and of Cape Ore. The great

Teuedos ; but quickly pursued by the
victors, and some nure ships were lost
which had escaped from the tight. Of all

Lord Liverpool and the Chancellor of the

The October Account terminated on

only lor the little fluctuation which has
occurred since its commencement. The

is. that on no occasion the re action or de

One defaulter was announced, and his

besides the speculations fora fall in the

Batonne, Oct- 12—The military pte

The mosf recent letters from th* 3 pro
vinces of Biscay state that the public tran
quility becomes more and more consoli
dated by the energetic measures of the
Magistrates, supported by the exertions of
the different Constitutional columns which
are iiv constant motion. The bands which
infest those provinces being entirely dis
persed, have thrown them-elves towards
Santander, and particularly towards Irati.
The news of^ the deleft ot the Royal
ists who went trom that place is confirm
ed, and they were repulsed with sever*
loss. It is even reported that the place is
iolesftd by their adversaries who hoped
to make themselves masters of it in a tew
days; but they have repeated this boast so
often, that we must not give credit to it,
and especially because Espinosa is nojt
strong enough to undertake the operation
and at .the same time to attend to the
maintenance ot Uanquiiity in the interior
of the province.
i he Royalists are still concentrated on
the banks of the Segre, from Urge! to
Puycerda; but several Chiefs of Gueril
| las had relused to obey Gen. Erolei* Gen- j
| Mina has severely punished on his vray
several individuals who had declared in
tavor ol the insurrection.—Some priests
had even been hanged. The rear of the
Constuional Army is constantly harrassed
by the bands of the Dtlenders of the
Faitb, who alarm the garrisons and mter
• rupt the communications; but it seems to
be the intention ot the Constitutional Gen
erals to let them alone tor the present,
i and to direct their whole efforts against
j Urge! and Puycerda. in order to put down
1 the Government ol the Regency, and that
■ they will then adopt measures to restore
peace in the interior.
i Venice, Sept. 22.—Letters from Cor
fu of 8th July say, that the Greek fleet
was off Cape Papas, and the Turkish fleet
in the Gulf of Lepanto where it was block
aded by ihe Greeks
The Greeks continue masters, says the
same report, of the Morea, with the excep
tion of Patras, and are advancing anew
through Livadia towards Thessaly. On
the other hand, fresh Turkish troops are
advancing from Macedonia, and strong
corps from the Danube are to follow them*
It is probable there will be some hard
fighting on the south of Thessaly before
the present campaign is ended, which
will be in the middle of Oct at the latest,
because tbe weather, the bad roads, and
the want ot necessaries ol all kind, make
it impossible to prosecute military opera
tions in that country. The Greeks, there
fore, have but to make a few efforts more
to be secure duiing the approaching win
ter.
