The ship Canton, arrived at X. York from Marseilles, Malaga and Gibraltar, left the latter on the 28th of Slept. The -Spanish peninsula wu-. in * state of complete anarchy, and sunk to the lowest degree of political, moral and commercial degradation. The Canton was unable to procure any fruit of good quality at Malaga, two-thirds of the crop having been destroyed after it was cut, and while drying. Malaga ami the neighborhood were quiet: Accounts one day later from Liverpool, by an arrival at Boston, inform us tliat the firm of John Owens Johnson, and James Q’Ca’daghan, merchants in Liverpool, trading in Charleston. S. C. under the firm of O’Callaghan & John son, had become bankrupt. We find no other news, except a slight improvement in cotton. We find by the Baltimore papers, tliat the Post Master General, With his usual prompti tude in seizing upon every improvement in his department, has determined to send all the Washington mail, as well papers as letters, by the earliest stage from that city, to Balti more. The great Southern mail when re ceived at W ashington, will be forwarded as usual. This arrangement will place the mail from this District, two hours sooner in Haiti more, than formerly. The new line of steam boats about to be es tablished between Baltimore and Philadel phia is not only intended for the conveyance of passengers, but merchandize from one city to the other. Such an i staMishment will tend much to the convenience of our own town, add enable us to deal more with Philadelphia than we have dene.Under the present arrange ment, however, it may be complimented by those whose interest it is to do so, we say, from experience, that the delay ami the ex tortion, prevents many from dealing in Phila delphia, who would otherwise fihd it to their interest. The Albany papers inform us, that the Court have delivered an opinion in the case of Tayloe for killing Crandall, refusing to admit the prisoner to bail. The Judges delivered their opinions separately, and agreed that if it had been doubtful whether or not the prison er was guilty of manslaughter, he might have been bailed;but they took special care to men tion that the testimony before them was testi monv taken on one side only; to wit, on the part «#f the prosecution; t’> at the prisoner’s counsel had no opportunity to crosvexamine the witnesses, nor to adduce additional testi monv in bis exculpation, and therefore it would be extremely unfiiir to let their deci sion on this application prejudice his de fence. Powhatas Ellis has been appointed by the tiovemor of the State of Mississippi to He % Senator of the United States from that State, vice Datih Holmes, resigned. Th- New-York papers contradict the re }»ort of the Savings Bank of that city having lost by the failure of the Eagle Bank. Notice is given by the Postmaster of Mon treal, that three mails a week, will, in future, be dispatched from that office for the United States. The Legislature of Tennessee, now in ses sion, has passed a bill giving the builder of a house, a lien on the property until the work is paid for. <Sb just and politic an act reflects no little credit upon that vigilant body, A resolution to inquire into the expediency of prohibiting fret people of color from voting at elections andol taxing them higher than at pt est nt, is under consideration. To this we have no objection; but the resolution further proposes to examine the power of the Legis lature to cause the removal of such persons out of the State, with a view, of course, to the ex ercise of the power,should it be found to exist, lli.w can such a measurv be just either in its operation upon those whose liberty it threat ens or upon the more philanthropic States whose laws admit the proscribed, notwith standing their presence is an acknowledged evil* To throw a strong light upon the subject let it be supposed, that such a right belongs to the States *»d that every state in the Union, ware of the advantage of getting rid of so unprofitable and so troublesome a popu lation, should determine* to act upon the pro posed principles of Tennessee—not by aiding in the transportation of these people to a fo reign Colony, but simply by ordering them, regardledkf their prospects, to quit the State. Tne absurdity of such course, when adopted by all the States, 19 manifest; and the adoption of it by a single state, rely ing upon the mercy of the others to effect the object, is, to our understanding, far more cruel than even Slavery itself. Let the States respec tively, prohibit, if they please, any ingress of free negroes—the step would he free from in justice, and tend to the advantage of all—but to kick them from one place to another, will not be tolerated. If Tennessee pass a law in conformity to the pending resolution, her neighbors will be driven in self-defence, to pass others that will counteract it. The Dis trict of Columbia already requires a prohibi tion of that character of ingress, and we hope at the approaching session of Congress, to *ee the matter brought into discussion. From Knoxville, in Tennessee, we learn that A II Fickel, late Assistant Postmaster at Blounisville, in the state of Tennessee, has been convicted of the offence, with which he was charg ed, of robbing t!u* mail of letters con taining money. The sentence of the Court had not been pronounced at the time our informant wrote. I he pub lic have re*son to rejoice that justice has overtaken this culprit, whose fate •ray serve as a warning to all others who are under temptation to follow his example. Inis person is suppose:! 10 nine made extensive depredations, but not to a large aggregrate amount, before hr w as discovered. His detection t ol; place in the following manner: Mr John Eason, of Jonesborougb, in Ten nessee, enclosed two hundred dollars, in hank notes, to a correspondent in Baltimore;and,taking a memorandum of the amount and description of the notes in the presence of the Postmas ter there, obtained his certificate of the memorandum and of the deppsite of the letter in the office. The letter was duly mailed for Abington, the dis tributing post office. Blonntsville is an intermediate post office and there! the mail rests o\cr night On ihisoc-; casion, Tick'd plundered it at leisure, | as he had probably often done before.1 On the letter failing to arrive, the \i-j gilance of the General Tost Office was j put into action, and Mr. George Swee- j nv, for many veais the faithful and in telligent principal Clerk in the Post Office of this City, was despatched to, endeavor to detect the ctimina!. A mong other measures taken for that: purpose, copies of the list of bank | notes, fortunately so formally attested, were left with the principal merchants of Abingdon; and \ery soon one of the notes, fot fifty dollars, made its appear ance, and the posst ssor of it had per sonally received it from Tickel. He had, when In* received it, moreover, from habitual-camion, endorsed on the hack of the note the name of the person of whom he had it. Fickel was ofj course appeeht tided; jjtnd the chain cd evidence was so-tfmiu U te, it was in'- j possible for him to escape convirtion. j [ National Intelligencer. FROM THE SANDWICH ISLANDS. Captain T. Arthur, of ship Sv.ift, (repotted under the marine head,) in forms us, that on his return from the coaKt of Japan, he touched at Atooi, i one of the Sandwich Islands, about the 20th June last, and left there on the ; 26th. A short time prior to which • f riner date, the British frigate com- ; manded by Lora Byron, despatched for the purpose of conveying from | Ergland tin remains of Khio Hhio, j had arrived at Oahu The corpse was | landed at that island, and immediately deposited in the house ol Billy Pitt, prime minister—which house was thereupon strictly “/u/w’rf.” Alter hav ing duly lain in state, the iunrral was solemnized in the European style—a long and splendid procession wa3 fot med, consisting of Europeans, Ame ricans and natives, who attended the bo dy to the place of sepulchre. Tor the first time, the natives were prohibited by their chiefs from exhibiting the cus tomary evidences of giiefon such occa sions. Of this regulation the natives complained sadly—saying, that it they were not to he permitted to ‘‘cry,” or utter audible lamentations, their late King might as well have been buried irf England. many r.uroprau tusiuiiia had also been introduced, through the influence of Lord Byron, and those chiefs vv ho had visited England. A mong the new laws, was one allowing to every native the privilege of pro curing a market for the produce of his own labor, without first being com pelled, as formerly, to bring his com modities to the chiefs. The utnvosi tranquility prevailed at the islands.— George 1 amorce, the late disturber was going at large, perfectly harmless; though the cuiefs cherish a determina tion to destroy him, as soon as the pro tection of Billy I'itt, shall be with drawn. The young Pi ince Regent is , very much beloved. [Nantucket Inq THE GREEKS. Captain Abbot, of tin ship General Jackson, arrived at Bristol, R.

[From the Philadelphia Gazette;)£ The follow ing letterfrom a gentleman in Pe ru to his friend in this city, has been kindly communicated tor publication:— Lima, 25th July, 1825.—I write to you from the city of Kings and the garden of eternal summer; where rain is un known, but vegetation enjoys uninter rupted health cherished by nightly clews. Lima is proverbially called, the Hea ven of Ladies—The Purgatory jf Men —and the Hell of Jack Asses. The Ladies enjoy supreme authority and unbounded indulgence in every wish—The men are their humble ser vants, and in their amours suffer every pain the most artful coquetry can in flict. The Jack Asses ought surely to be rewarded hereafter for their dread ful and unmerited sufferings here— Loaded so they can scarcely stand, they are spurred, lashed, and stabbed until they drop dead under the torture. But this is so common that no further trou i b;r is taken than to remove the load and ! li t tin u: iic iii ti.e roads which are lined with theirdead bodies. Lima is said to be a corruption of 1 Rimac,the Indian name of a small river ; which passes through the city. In the primitive language of the country Hi 5 mac signifies he who epeaks, and tradi ; tiou *uys that the aborigines believed i the gieut spiiit occasionally visited Pe i ru to ascertain the number of his elect, j and that his footsteps rent the inoun I tains anti made the earth tremble; and j when it happened, their custom w as to run out i . tl ci y here am /. I'he cause of the earth’s trembling is now belter understood, and the cry is changed to Miser ccor dm. There is a ceremony observed by Ca tholics w.uch lias a sublime effect.— Every day at an appointed hour about sun setting tilin', amidst the din and bustle of a large city, the Cathedral bell sounds—and instantly all life is still. The most profound silence reigns. Passengers stand in tin* streets and uncover their heads: Horses and all animals under control are instantly stopped: the noisy laugh, the mirthful jest and the .sober conversation, all cease; and every countenance assumes a grave appearance—All mankind are at that moment engaged in prayers of devotion—The lleil sounds a second time, and a third; and instantly follows a peal. ’Tis then done; and life again resumes *cti' ity. The walking dress of the Ladies in Lima is remarkable. It consists of two garments called the any a y mania. The funner is a petticoat of close net work w Inch fus tight to the form from the waist down nearly to ihc-ancles—The manta is a black silk hood tied round the waist with a drawing string, and cu’ried back over the head, the hands underneath elc.alcd to the cheeks and clasping the mantle closely around the Lee, w hich is entirely concealed, ex cept out eye that can scarcely be seen tinough a small opening from which it i lu* Ladies signify their approha t.on of a gentleman by pushing the lit linger through the aperture lor the eye and gracefully curling it towards the face.

At this time the most common ntinsilsof the old inha bitants are generally of solid gold and silver. The buildings are-gencraUy two sto ries high with Patios or court yards, terrace roofs baltisUaded, ail built of massive stone woik, except the doors and rafti rs, and verandas projecting into the streets.

The scene of his punishment recalled to my memory his acts of cruelty and I could not feel any commisseration for his fate. Lima is about eight miles inland from the Pacific 0>ean, and Chorillos is the temporary sea port, distant about nine miles Callao is the proper sea port, and about the same distance from Lima,but it is occupied by the Royal ists under (len Rodil and is now the only seat of w ar in Peru. The three places are about equidistant from each other. Callao is situated on a neck of low land that projects into the sea, and con tained before the war about 4000 inha bitants. The fortifications consist of three Castles, mounting together one hundred and ninety pieces of heavy or dinance, and command the town, the harbour, and the whole neck of land across which they are situated. They are built of heavy stone work, inclining inwards from the base and surrounded by deep moats with heavy drawbridges across in the ancient style. '1 he walls are so strong that no aitilleiy can pen etrate them; their inclination inwards from the base causes the balls which strike them horizontally to glance over; besides, they are protected by trenches .thrown upon the outside nearly to the muzzles of the guns, and which also answer as a breast work for troops out side. Six months ago, when the Patriots a second time got possession of Lima, it was expected Rod'll would have imme diately capitulated and surrendered Callao. Instead of which he drove the old men, women and children from the town, laid up stores of provisions for his troops and defied his antago nists His force at that time was 1500 men, but the number is reduced by death and desertion to about 800. They are blockaded by a squadron of five or six vessels, and besieged on land by a Pati iot force of 1000. The castles con tain immense stores of ammunition and considerable wealth. Rodil is a determined man in despe rate circumstances. He may be re duced by disease and desertion, but will tim er voluntarily surrender. His boats fish in safety under the guns of the castles, and he has land enough within tlu ir protection to raise vegeta bles for Ids troops. The besieging army occupies a small town called ^ellavista, on the road to Lima^^out three quarters of a mile tYo.e^Hy^btl'Sft This town is nearly i c s n s ’■'■larclHB^^BIMmlicrs are urine ipal ly shetS^TT Ih Unis behind the remain ing walls. There has been daily fight ing lor the last three months, and fre quent skirmishing between the troops. The firing from the Castles is at times tremendous.— They certainly re turn the Patriots ten shots for one. I \ isited the Patriot camp a few days ago, and leaving my horse at Bellavis ta, proceeded on foot along the trendi es which project in short angles from the town about half a mile towards the Castles and within a few hundred yards of them These trenches are dug about three feet deep, and the loose earth thrown upon the side towards the castles and staked; so that the trench and breast work together are about as high as the head, and behind them I felt tolerably safe from the halls which whistled over me. Whilst looking over the en trenchment at the lower end, towards the castles. I observed one of the fish ing boats, full of men, pulling towards the blockading \ essels. They were de serting from the castles,which instant ly opened a mort tremendous fire upon the boat. The shot dashed the water about her without appearing to do her any serious damage. I took this opportunity whilst they were engaged on the sea side to go be yond the entrenchment and view the castles They did not appear to have received the least impression from the heavy firing that had been made on them by the besiegers. 1 hey had a very military appearance; the Koval Standard was flying. The sentinels were marching on the battlements, and every thing appeared to he in perfect order. I do not think they can be taken by assault; the moat i*. too wide to be passed without much wdior; the land is so low they cannot be undermined, and they have been bom barded without any perceptible effect. ’’ be besieged have made every prepa ration tor defence. I was told by ofli rers in the Patriot camp that the walls .ere covered with bomb-shells ready be fired and rolled on any assaulting arty. I had not much time to make obser .atinns; the boat escaped, and the fir g against die entrenchments rccom enetd, and even within them it was ither warm quarters for a disintercst i spectator. On returning to Bella 's!.* I observed several officers collect ' to see the boat escape, and found a .uitg them the chief engineer who is Frenchman and speaks a little Eng - i. Jle told me he wa> at the battle Baltimore, in 1814, and was attached i toe corps of engineers there. I do ii remember his name. It appears Rodil is most apprehen ve of disaffection among his troops, lie however, has one regiment that he 'enlisted at Afequepa, in which he placed great confidence. He preserves a most rigid discipline; no three per sons are allowed to converse together privately; and any sign of discontent is punished'with instant death. Atone time a Colonel spoke to him of their situation, told him the troops were loy al and determined to die under his command in defence of the castles, but they were desirous to know what pros pects he had of success. Rodil immediately had the troops paraded, informed them that his affairs were desperate; and he did not wish any to remain with him who were dis contented; hut desired them to use that time to signify their sentiments, and ordered those who were dissatisfied to ground their arms and advance in front. Accordingly about 40 men, including the Colonel and some officers, marched out of the line, when he instantly order ed the line to fire on them, and they were all executed. It was an awful stratagem to discover, and rid himself of the disaffected, and to awe the garri son into future silence. A few such men as Rodil would ruin the patriot cause in this country, and literally he worth the Indies to Ferdi nand. Neat-York, A or. 7.—We have receiv ed by the Andromache, our usual files of Jamaica papers to the 8th ult. inclu sive. A violent storm of wind and r.tin was experienced at Montego Bay on the 28th and 29lh of September.— The town was partially overflowed.— The same was also experienced at Port Maria. The West India (Jazctte mentions that the America schooner Mary Emily, (which had been under seizure for upwards of fifty day's, with out any just cause,^ parted her cables and went on shore. EARTHQUAKE AT TIHNIDAD. Captain Arnold arrived at Newport, reports that a violent Earthquake was experienced at Trinidad, on the 26th September at 9 o’clock at l^jh?, and that scarcely a house escaped without some damage. The houses ane of stone, and though none ot them were demolished, yet some of them were so rent and split :1m it would be necessa ry to pull them down. The Earth quake was said to be as violent as that experienced at Carracas several years since, ('apt. A. thinks one more shock would have demolished the town.— Happily no lives were lost, although several accidents occurred. No da mage happened to the shipping—Mar ket dull for American produce, gene rally—Flour was in demand at 88. From the London John Bull. Mr. Kkan, wrecked in health and fortune, his spirits broken and his tem per soured, is acting ‘ for a little,’ pre vious to his departure for America; his lady, to whom, like another Samp son, he bed trusted all bis strength In the shape of a power of attorney, hav ing drawn out of Coutts’s hands, a ba lance of four thousand some hundred pounds, has retired therewith to the fastnesses of Bute, and the once idol ized Roscius of the Coal-hole is quit ting his native land, as he says, and wc believe, forever, Mr. Kkan never was a favorite actor of ours; we have said so over and txver again; but Mr. Kean must have had a certain degree of merit to have main tained the place he held in the thespian world. Mr. Kean acts as vveli now, as he did ten years since; and Mr. Kean is absolutely driven out of the country by want of support and patronage.— The strange part of the thing is this: He and many other persons attribute his fall to the part he played about Mrs. Cox! But that it is not attributable to any such cause is the truth; because long before the denouncement of that highly creditable affair, be was acting at reduced prices at Drury lane,to emp ty benches. We cannot, indeed, bring ourselves to believe, that indignation even to destruction, should await Mr Kean for conduct less offensive to pub lic morality than that which we have seen patronised and supported in anoth er case; and we verily believe, however opportunely the affair of Mr. and Mrs. Cox terminated to justify the total de cadence of Mr. Kean’s popularity, upon the score of fine feeling, that the bub ble bad already burst, and that the world, we mean the world of Russel court and Row street, had awakened to the true sense of Mr. Kean’s acting ilis proceedings at Manchester, how ever, as detailed in a provincial paper, arc extremely curious, as me lasi acts of the departing favourite. We con fess that the description of his conduct gives us a very disagreeable suspicion as to the state of his mind; not that we should be suprised at any alteration un der which he might labor Absurd as was his elevation in the profession, hi:* fail is still more fanciful, and nothing ought to impress the minds of the ac tors more deeply than his case with the real nature of the tenure of their professional existence. If any man reading Whitbread’s puffs of Kean, in all the papers,* teD years since, seeing him presented with cups, medals, swords, hats, wigs, spurs, corks, hare’s feet, and every different appurtenance of his calling, by admirers and vene rating lovers of the arts and the drama, had suggested that this idol should, in eight or ten years, drag his deceased body into transatlantic exile, in abso lute poverty, neglected by the town, and not engaged in the theatres, he would not have been believed; and, least of all, would Kean himself have credited such a prophecy. But so it is, and such is the fickleness of fashion. On the 24th ult I’r.

I National Journal, Charlottesville Aon. 5.—On Saturday last, as two )oung gentle men were pas sing briskly down a hill near this plate, in a gig, the shafts suddenly broke, and oneol them, Mr. James E. Marshall, of Fredericksburg was pre cipitated under the heels of th*- horse. His leg was broken by a kick fiom the horse, and though surgical aid was im mediately procured and the limb was set, yet it was so mangled and bruised as to occasion mortification in a shoit time, and finally to occasion death! It has never been our painful duty to an nounce a more melancholy occurrence. Mr. Marshall was a young man, dis tinguished for his amiable disposition and correct deportment ; qualities which seemed ro attach his friends with devoted fondness to his character.
