The Buenos Ayres Argus contains the de
tails of Bolivar's Victory over Canterac, at
U. in which have already appeared in this

a brief account of a battle at Acobama,
Previous to that of Junin. of which we have
hitherto had no intimation. Wc translate

We had not room yesterday for extracts i
from the Calcutta papers. The paper of j
July 30, contains a despatch from Sir Archi j the
bald Campbeil, dated at Rand on the 11th. in ,
which he relates the operations of the army |
for the preceding month. We extract from ! '
it some of the most important parts.
Since I had the honor of addressing you on
the 16th. ult, we have had several partial af
fairs with the enemy, except in one instance,
invariably sought for on our part, and ail end
ing in the same brilliant manner, that has
hitherto marked the gallant and intrepid l '
conduct of the troops under my command,
About the end of last month, it was stated to I
me by some prisoners of war, and corroborât- j
ediby a few Rangoon people, who had escaped i..
from the jungle, that thu Burmese Clue! had ,
received positive orders from court to make j
a general attack upon our line, and drive us I
at once out of the country. Every movement i
of the enemy plainly indicated that some
tiling was intended: large bodies of troops
were for two successive days, seen crossing i
tiie river above Kemundinc, from the Dallali 1
to tiie Rangoon side, and 1 felt tiie more in- j
dined to give credit to the report from being j
well aware, that hud any sucli order been !
received by the Barman General, certain'
disgrace, or even decapitation would be the!
inevitablc consequence of his disobeving it. i
On the morning of the first instant,'every
doubt on the subject was removed. j
The letter goes on to give a particular ac- ! u
count of nn attack made by the Burmese ! ,
troops, said to amount to n'OUvJ men, which '
was repulsed with ease, and the enemy dis
persed. On the 2d. of July a party of the
enemy entered the town of Daliah, attacked
the British troops and killed an officer, Capt.
Is:u k. The despatcli proceeds :
While the enemy abstained from convert
ing tlieir town to the purpose of annoying us,
1 also respected and afforded it every protec
tion, although uninhabited by one individual ;
but when they thought proper to make itra
mighty scene of savage warfare, I razed it to I
the ground.
Numerous reinforcements daily joined the
enemy's army in our front, a thing much to
be desired, as tending to increase the dis

very woody and inundated state ot the coun
try would possibly admit of. Forthat pur
pose I formed the torce to be employed into
two columns ol attack ; one proceeding by
land under the command of that excellent
and indefatigable officer, Brigadier General
M'Bean for the purpose of surrounding the
enemy oil the Land side, while I with the
other proceeded by water to attack their
Stockade possition, along the Bunks of the
River in Iront.
1 hese operations were entirely successful
and the lesult is thus stated in tiie despatch.
Ten Stockades were thus taken from the
enemy in one day, and upwards of (800)
eight hundred of his best troops were left
dead on the ground 33 pieces of Artillery,
40 Swivels and 3000 Muskets were also cap
tured, a loss Of no small importance, when
fire arms are so scarce. Three of tiie ene
my's Chiefs whose names are not vet known,
were found among the dead—The chief 1

There is, perhaps, no fact better substantiated,

for winds, from the gravitation of the earth and

Thus, after a lapse of nearly two thousand

There is an old song called " The Devil
among the Tailors," but we fear from the
transactions in our nighbourhood last even
ing, some ninth part ot a poet would take in
to his head, by means of a parody to associ
ate our peaceable profession with evil compa
ny. Besides if tradition speakes true of the
blazing breath and red-hot fingers ot his Sa
tanic Majesty, his touch would rather melt
our types, than simply throw them in fli.
But metaphor apart, "riuch a row, such a
rumpus, and a rioting," as the song goes,
took place in the office of the National Ad
vocate last evening, as we greatly tear will
scandalize our calling, harmonious and pea
ceable as it is. The owners disposed ot the
whole to the late printer, Mr. Snowden, now
of the Patriot. Being thus in possession of
the title to his own promises, and like Cas
sius, feeling himself "armed strong in hem
estv," Mr. S. repaired to the office to take
possession. The Major Commandant, how
ever, refused to surrender any tiling more
an the arms and ammunition,"such as types,
press, paper &c. but having a lease of the
house, he gave them to understand that lie
knew law enough to know that it was his
castle. A prompt refusal being thus return
ed to the herald, who sounded the parley, a
spirited siege was tiie consequence. But
tlie assailants having at length effected a
breach, gamed an entrance, and then was re-1
newed the fearful comlict. The devil (of
the office) stuck to bis master, and plied
the ink balls with surprising agility. The
press, paper, and furniture, were in quick
time tumbled into the yard. Mallets, slieeps
feet, types, and bodkins, flew about the a-j
partineuts, in all mazes of typographical
con f us i on- Long and doubtful was the con
fiict; but fearing that like the Kilkenny
cats, they might fight till nothing of either
was left, both parties sent to the Police Of
fice tor assistance, and a bevy of police of
ficcr(j s00 „ had p 0sse9sl on, and Hays
tbcrcu p on placed in supreme command 1
This morning Mr. Snowden has given us an
Advocate with narrow columns on the out
n as
side, and wide ones within ; while the Major
for once appears in a "7 by 9," in which
he abuses sundry persons in good set terms,
and announces that lie shall soon be again be
fore the public with a new Advocate which
is to make divers bank directors, stockhold
ers, ike. turn pale and tremble.
