The tbip .1 riinn, rapt French, which HH Liverpool oj (hi 22J November, arrived off thii port on lh morninor fifihlit nil hni un fortunately wu cast away on the touth tide of Long Island, about 40 miles from Sandy Hook, wnero mm now Uet bilged. The passengers and Craw were' all tared. . The cargo consists of salt, coal and dry goods. The ship is said to be in. tared in two offices in this city ; one half in each The cansigoees are Jer. Thomson, owner, Phelps ti Peck,T Walker & Sons, W Whitehead, Geo. Jfewbold, J & P Hone & Co. J Hollis, P Schcr nerhorn & Sons, J W Schmidt Si Co. Spackman & Wilson, Philad. A Stevenson, Geo.

In the steerage,, Mary Jonet and family, John Thin, Patrick Rouke, and Patrick Callaghan. The letter bag of the Union was brought up yes - terday, containing London papers of the 20lh and Liverpool of the 22d November. By. the packet ship Stephania, Capt. Macy, , - " - " - , uave receivcu rant papers to the 20th Nov. These papers are chiefly filled with local matters, and speculations on the medi tated reconquest of SOUTH AMERICA : respecting which, however, nothing farther has transpired. The London Courier continues to treat the subject in the same tone of defiance and lullation all tending to show that the British ; government has finally resolved on opposing every attempt to overthrow the free constitutions of South America. The Pihte, published at Paris. asks, "if the powers composing the Holly Alii. ance should publish their declaration of non - recognition of the independence of South America. and England, on the contrary.and should officially recognise that independence, which they have already done tie facto, what will be the conse quence ?" To this it is promptly answered" an appeal to arms, a determination which hit M jetty't Ministers had unequivocally avowed in the preparations for war going on in the different ports." SPAIN. Ferdinand's arrival at Madrid on the 13th No - remner, is at last announced. The lay previous be said to have passed several important de crees. the publication of which was immediately expected. The formation of a new MinMry was talked of, and the dismissnl of Don Victor Saez, the King's Confessor, is said to have been deter mined on. tlis removal is attributed to his having V;e.npted to direct the concience of his majesty A letter from Madrid of the "th Nov ember, tates that a Congress would assemble in that city on the ht of December, to consist of different Am Dassauorsoi foreign powers. Kiego appears to have met his late with great firmness; to the Judge who read the seutence, he observed, "may my death restore calm and bnppincij to Spain. FRANCE. The levies recently decreed to augment the naval force of France, ure stated to have been countermanded, and a number of tr - a.nen ds charged from the Royal navy. Orders had bee transmitted by the French government to the se veral councils ot war in the frontier divisions ol Spain, to suspend the execution of the judgments they had rendered. This order is said to hav been given in cousequeno of the intercession of the Duke d'Angouletne in favor of those French men taken in arm against their country. Mar - thai Lawriston had arrived iu Puns, and the Duke d'Angouleme was expected there on the 1st De cember. The French papers state that peopl were employed in landing the cargo ot the ship Paris, but it was not known whether she would be got off. A sale of 150 bbli. pot ash, 200 boxes tea, 150 bags coffee, and 150 bales of cotton, part of the cargo was advertised to take place on the 'J - lili November. We regret to learn that the crew. with the exception of the Captain and fir - .t mate, were all lost la going from Cherbourg to Havre in a French sloop. TURKEY & GREECE. It it stated in letters from the frontiers of Italy that the Porte had issued orders for the immediate equipment of all their vessels of war; but for ' what purpose was not known. The D'van is taid, in accounts from Constantinople, to have expressed to Lord Strangford some disquietude on account of the renewal of negotiations between Russia and Persia. We have a confirmation of the pleasing intelligence that in the late naval engagement with tho Turks, the Creeks were the victors. Their fleet, commanded by Admiral Midoule, is stated to have been led to the attack on the Ottoman's in three divisions about the latter part of September, a little above Myteline. The engagement lasted upwards of four hours; the Greeks, by menus of their fire '6ips, burnt 4 large Turkish vessels ; tho others were either sunk or stranded on the coast of Asia, and two captured frigates wcro brought into the port of Ptrns. Tbo remainder of tho Turkish fleet sought refuge in the port of Oliveto. We bare also the particulars of the different engagements on land, alluded to in the late accounts from Smyrna at having been disastrous to the (Jteks, So far from tin's being the case, it appears (hat the Turkish army under the commaud of the Pacta of Adrianople, and Jussuf Pacha, which penetrated into Livadia, was completely routed, and was flying to Thessaly, with the Greeks at their heels. The army of the Pacha of Scodra had also experienced two signal defeats in attempts which he madf to dispute the defile of Missolonghi with vbe Grecian Commander, Contoyanne. Iu a third attempt, however, he was more successful. Taking advantage of a large detachment of Greeks hivving been sent on another service, ho again attacked the dcGle, which he succeeded in forcing, and, when the last accounts came away, he was in full march towards Missolonghi ; but as this place was defended by CO pioces oJ cannon, no apprehensions were entertained for its safety.

The British Parliament had been summered to meet on the,3d of February for the despatch of business. The Cabinet Council, which hd been called by Mr. Canning, was numerously attended ; but we do not observe that any thing bad transpired as to the result of the deliberations. The Morning Chronicle elates, that General Beresford't principal object in procediog to Lit bon was to endeavour to counteract the power of the French party in the Portuguese cabinet Sir Robert Wilson had arrived iu London. Baron Von Hoffman. This fellow's case was brought before the Court of King's Bench, Dub lin, on the 14tb November, on an application (or conditional order to restrain proceedings in the Insolvent Debtors' Court.. Mr. Dixon stated that the Baron had been arrested at the suit of a person named Jaoobs, of New - York, upon an af fidavit of a debt ol two thousand dollars, sworn to be due to Jacobs by Von Hoffman, the amount of bill of exchange payable at Liverpool. Here the learned gentleman was about to enter into the particulars of the debt, when the Court inti mated to him that from having had the case so lately before them in Chambers, it was unneccs sary for him to do so. Mr. Dixon then resumed aud staled, that the ground on which he prayed the interference of tho Court was, that the In solvent Debtor' Court had not iurisdiction. and could not take cognizance of a debt contracted by two Ibreigners in a foreign country ; and lhat supposing tho Insolvent Debtors' Court had no jurisdiction, the Baron could not avail himself of the Insolvent Debtors' Act iu consequence of his inability to comply with its provisions. Condi tional order g anted. by lettert received in London from the East nJics, it appears that lOi; houset were destroyed by fire at the Bazar, Bhaugulporo, in the East Indii't. Three females were bunted to death and four were missine. Many cloth merchants were ruined. The natives stood weeping and looking on the fire, without doing any thing to stop it. The amount of exports of British manufactures to Buenos Ay res and Chili, during the last year. is stated to have exceeded tcven million ot dol lars. The London Courier is now printed by a ma chine constructed by a Mr. Napier, which is on pable of throwing off considerably more than 2000 an hour on one occasion it produced at the rale ot 28C0 per hour. No new steam apparatus employed, but two men alternately turn a fly wheel which acts as an impelling power. Placards were posted about the etrcets of Lon ion proposing a general mourning as a mark of respet t to the memory of the unfortunate Riego. From Mexico. Accounts from Alvarado state, that the catle of St. Juan recommenced firing on Vera Cruz the 2d of December. A fleet frotii Havana of 5 sail, including a frigate and a sehr. of war, arrived off thoCa;tleon the 21st Nov. with provisions, troops, kc. F. Yesterday morning about 5 o'clock, our citizens were alarmed by the cry of fire. It if believed to have originated in a fuiull stable situ - a'e in the rear of Canal near Greenwich stand between Canal and streets. As the building at the place where the fire commenn..! were chiefly stables and small wooden buildings, the appearance, at first, was very alarming ; but by the usual activity of our firemen, the (lames were suppressed before they ha 1 produced that calamity which had been apprehended. The following are the principal sufferers : Messtt. Robertson k Buchannan, tallow rhand lors, 21 Desbrosscs street. Their manufactory in the rear is completely destroyed. Andrew Zimmerman, hay cartman, in Dcs brosses street His house greatly injured. The manufactory of William Joues, gold beat er, between DcsbroEscs and Canal street, destroy cd.

The Cause of the Gruki.Ai may appear strange to those who recollecf. the history ol Bos - ton, lliatshe should have suffered anv citv in the Union to precede her in point of time, or eeal, in a cause to iruly worthy ot the sympathy ot every true ana christian people. '1 Iwse who would draw Irom this apparent delay, or from the cautious manner iu which Ihe subject is hero discus scd, an lnlerence, that the citizens of this town feel an interest less deep.or are unwilling to make sacrifices at great as any portion of the civilized worm, would grossly err. 7 hey are w holly ignorant of Hie character of the population of Bos - ion. ii mere nave Dcen appearances ot deliberation, they arc attributable to the rcrlectin clia racter of the people to their contempt for mere proiefnons, wufii important anJ va uab e exer. tious are to be made to their entire reliance on the national rulers to their intimate belief and conviction, that nothing can be more pernicious man mo excitement ot the passions ot a free peo ple, wiucn may nurry, or perhaps farce the Go verninent tulo measures, which their sober judgmeut would not approve, and the adoi tion oi wnicn, may cause Hum and us years of suffer ing, Deioro we can get rid of their effects. Iu brief, the Yankees are fedeialitlt in principle they have contributed to form a federal government, and they are disposed to leave our national conmtws to their management. If the interests duties, either moral or political, of the United States if the feelings of the wholo public require uur M - mouni aiu in lavour ol ihe liieeks, tliey do not think so ill of the newly elected Cousrcss. as to believe they will not respond to the public lulling mai mcy win mner in ihe course ol du ty, or be less zealous, than the warm ami anivi. individuals of the several cities, who may mfc thit ucranun io sniw their ardor in a righteous cau - c. I know it may be said, that Coneress are ino. rant of the state of public feeling, and need sup - port. I deny this to be the state of things. The Greek cause has been fully discussed for three years past It was mil understood, when these elections to the present Congress took place but well or ill understood, is it certain, that meeting. in a few populous cities better expf ess the public feeling and opinio - , than the sober judgment ot Lontress.' On the contrary our historv 14 full is indeed pregnant with examples of Ihe most rash and intemperate conduct of popular meetings, iiud ol the most permanent and detructive effects resulting Irom them. To DonuVnr meetings a gmist Washington's proclamation of nutrality we ow.'d the disgraceful sceues of I79J and 170 1 riots in our cities the resistance to our count ol iaw, and the burning of Briti - li vejscls at our wharves. 1 0 popular meetings we owe the burn ing of the venerable Jav in e.iTuv. lor hi a.tmiia hie treaty with Great Britain.

I observe that almost all our newspapers in mentioning the Beaumarchais claim, which is year after year brought before Congress, always speak of it as the claim of the late Baron de Beau marchais. J Ins is a sbeht error of tha nr. in. volving a very considerable error nersona. The true Dame is Caron do Beaumarchais, a name wiiiui ccriaiuiy auus nme weight to the claim, though it is that of a man of wit and even genius, who was no Baron, but whose squubbles, intrigues and speculations, were the town talk of Paris for many years, and whoie pleasant and witty, tho' rather licentious, comedy of the Marriage de Ft - garro, and opera of Tarare. after turnine the heads of all play - going Parisians for two or three seasons, still keen undisputed possession !' ih F rench stage, and in some shape or other of trans lation or imitation, of every stage in Europe. nis name is laminar to all who are conversant with the more recent literary and dramatic his. tory of France, and occurs in every page of the wier volumes 01 uaronunuims' entertaining memoirs. V From the Albany Daily Advertiser, Dee. 29. It was ttated some time ao. that four ladi in Paris, Oneida county, came to their death in consequence r - f a hard Worm being boiled in the water used for their tea.
