JSS PROSPECTUS OP TUB MACON TELEGRAPH, A WSIK.T MEW5PAPSB, PRINTED AT MAQON, OA. 7j*HE local advantages of the town of Ma con as an emporium for Literature as well as Commerce,—situated as it is, almost in the eery centre of the State; at the head of Na- Vcation on a beautiful river; in the heart of a JL fertile and heahhy country,*—were a- ■fnong the inducements that led to the propos ed undertaking. The rapid strides this mrant settlement has todde, in the short space of four years; the importance, in a commercial point of view, it has already acquired; the attention, the in terest, it every where excites; the tide of business, of capital, of talent, so rapidly flow ing there; already direct the public mind to the high destiny which awaits it. Though there is already one neatly printed taper in" Macon, yet the peculiar situation of fa t ; mes —the increasing business of the place —the intelligence, the public spirit of the com- jnunity the increasing population, wealth and importance of this section of the State,—call 1 loudly for the assistance of another Press; which shall not only disseminate useful infor mation, but advocate fearlessly, the bights OF THE FEO?tE With regard to the Political course intend ed to bo pursued by the Editor, he presumes a few remarks will suffice:—He pledges him self to no faction or cabal. Warmly devoted to the cause of the people, his constant en deavor will be to promote their interests—rhis highest ambition to merit their confidence.— Though he does not deny a preference to the principles of one of the contending parties thitt agitate this State,—yet such measures, and such men, only, ns to him may seem paid of the year. easts pay in advance.

Continent, but being detained two days at Do ver, through tempestuous weather and adverse winds, the newspapers announced to him the union of Lady Emily and Lord Morton. This early disappointment threw a sombre shade over the after-life of Sir Robert Norman- ville.—Five and twenty years had now passed away,yet Sir Robert still remembered Lady Em ily in all the beauty and freshness of her youth. Sho died five years aftor her mariage, leav ing one child, a daughter. Some years after her death, Sir Robert met Lord Mortop in London; but a cool bow of recognition was all that passed between them; and, as the form er seldom ever visited the gay world he saw nb more of his Lordship, who had now been dead about two years, and the guardianship of his daughter transfered to her maternal aunt. Report spoke of her as being beautiful and ami able; and, as she was an heiress, she had no lack of lovers. Within the bat year, howe ver, she had most unaccountably refused sever al offers which had been made to her by suitors of rank. Sir Robert Norman ville’s stately edifice was this evening a blaze of light; variegated lamps were tastefully disposed in different parts of the grounds, and the decorations of the ball room presented all that could gratify the eye and delight the senses. The company was numerous and splendid, and Sir Robert appear ed to have lost his usual melancholy, and to share in the general festivity. The merry dance began, and Sir Robert gazed proudly on his son, whoso polished manners and handsome person gained him many a smile from fair and high-born ladies. The delighted father had place. 1 himself near to one of the windows in the ball-room, and was intently watching the graceful forms that flitted before him; when suddenly his eye was caught by the figure of a female with whom his son was dancing. Sir INTEMsaGENCE, Sind of t jsunlly sjperior best calculated to promote the public good, Robert involuntarily started ; for the very figure will receive his support, without respect to tho of Lady Emily Darrell stood before him, as he party which claims them. . The Editor sees with pain, tho dilemma in which Georgia is placed, in regard to her rela tions with the General Government, and the ravful crisis to which sho is hastening. With out stopping to inquire, whether, in the origin of this dispute, she had justice on her side, he pledges himself, to use H's unwearied exertions to preserve the rights and dignity of tho State, and to avert the evils that threaten to over whelm her. In supporting the rights of Geor gia. he shall not feel himself bound to with unmerited abuse, tho Government o. the United States; or to ascribe to others, the e- vils which mav have arisen from our own im prudence. Wherever, in his opinion, censure may be deserved, it shall not be withheld.— As a Georqian, in feelings and interest, ho frill contend, strenuously, ‘(hr every iota of her tiirlits! As a descendant of the Martyrs of tho Revolution, every attempt to weaken the Gov ernment of his Country, or sever the Union of these States, will meet with ills utter abhor rence, and determined opposition. TERMS.—Three Dollars per annum, if \id in advance, or Four Dollars at the end ■ .. Distant subscribers must in all bad last beheld her, radiant in youth nnd love liness. “But this is mere illusion," mentally e- jaculated the Baronet: “Iknow she has been dead these mamy years, and were sho even liv ing, could not look thus now." He looked again—still it was her very image, save that the face was rather paler, and the general ex pression of the countenance of a more pensive cast than that of Lady Emily's. Sir Robert seated himself, still watching the lovely and in teresting girl, whose appearance had so much ...imereti him, itnrJI years seemed to fade away, and the events of his youth to pass again be fore him. Lady Emily, ms hisc-rov;.—-wro happy hours he had experienced in her society —her very look at parting, were all remem bered. _ His emotion became insupportable, and to conceal it he hastily left the room, and retired to a private apartment until heshould have, in some degree, mastered his feelings.— The quick eye of Arthur Normanvillo soon noted his father’s absence; and in part guessing the cause, he declined dancing, and descended to the library. On opening the door he per ceived his tether standing near tho fire-place. “You arc not ill, I hope, my dear Sir!” said Arthur. “No! no! A momentary indisposi tion, which has now, I trust, passed away.— Come, let us rejoin our guests." “Stay, but for a few miuutes,” said his son; “I have a boon to beg of you, my dear father; will you grant it to me?” “But why now, Arthur,” said tho Baronet; “some other time.”—“O, THE BIRTH DAY.

No." The hells of the church at N—-■— wore ringing a merry pea), and tho whole village was in a delightful busilp on the morning when Arthur N’ormnnvUle completed his twenty-first year, was the only son and heir of Sir Robert Nor manvillo, and from his goodness of heart and ur banity of manners, was deservedly tr general fa vourite with tho tenants nnd peasantry in the neighbourhood. Great preparations had beon some time making to cclebmto.his coming of age, and a magnificent ball was to be given in flit evening, to which tho gentry for many miles round were invited. Nor were the poorer class forgotten, for thoy hail an ample share in tho strong ale nnd good cheer abounding on tho occasion. Sir Robert had beon a widower for some years, and all his hopes and affections centered in this son, who, in truth, was in every respect tparthy of a fathor's love. lu early youth, Sir Robert had formed an firdent attachment to the beautiful Lady Emily Harrell. Ho had somo reason to hope that his affection was returnod; and, ns his lineage and expectations on the score of fortuno were un exceptionable, ho apprehended no* rejection from the lady’s friends. Things were in this happy train, when the sudden death of his fa ther rendered Sir Robert’s presence necessary in tho countoy, and it was two months beforo no again visited the metropolis. In that time, what a change had taken place! His beloved Ltnily no longer seemed to rejoice in his pre face ; but all her smiles and attentions wero given to Lord Morton, who had, during Nor- tnanvillo’s absence, professed unbounded admi- fation for tho fair coquette.

The AHgemeine Zeitung of tho 2( h ultimo contains the following intelligence, da ?d Con stantinople, July 26:—“ M.

Accordit g to his account, the Greeks had resolved ti> defend themselves to the utmost, having still possession of the fortress of Napoli di Romania, inio which the bravo Suliots from Missolonghi havi* thrown themselves. This fortress is in goad condi tion, and is said to have provisions for eigh teen months. The Mainotes had haughtily re jected the proposals of submission that had been „..„ riv „ for me. I will noli-then, refuse what you ask—name it.”—“How shall I tell you—there is a being to whom I have rendered up my heart’s best affections! I hope; I think she also beholds me with favour, but I wait for your sanction ere I shall tell her the fond hopes ! entertain.’*— 1 “Who, and what is she?” said Sir Robert. “High-born and beautiful,” replied his son. “Her name?"—“Lady Emily Mor ton.” Tho Baronet again involuntarily started, and sank into a chair. “How Cam© you ac quainted with that Lady!” lie sternly inquired. “She was on a visit to Lady Dunallnn at tho samo time with myself, and knows not of the re sentment -you entertain against her family.”— “Is sho hero to-night?” asked Sir Robert.-— "Sho came with Lady Dunallati’s party," said Arthur. “ You knew of my desire never to see or hear of the Mortons, and why not before ap prize me of this?”—"Pardon me, my dear Sir, that I have done so, but I had beard Lady Em ily was so much like her mother, and T thought —I hoped—that from that cause you would re- that her mother decoivcd mo?" "Alas! yes: but is she. to.blame for. that? Fwloved iliat mother once, am I to blame for loving the daughter?” Tlio Baronet rose, and paced tho room in great agitation. Suddenly stopping before his son, he said—“She is, indeed, like her mother, whom I remember, even now, too well. Hea ven gram that she may bo unlike her in mind*— I promised to grant you your request—it is your natal day, too, and i would not havo you say- hereafter, that your father stepped between you and happiness. No! no! When I am gone you shall not have cause to think harshly ofyour pa rent and tho Baronet turned aside to conceal his emotion. “My ever kind father!”—“E- nough!" said Sir Robert; “You shall introduce mo particularly to the lady; if she bo as good as she is beautiful, and your affection be mutual you have mv consent. .

According to a private let :r from not taken the least part in what posses in tho city, . The Augsburg Gazette contains the follow ing intelligence, dated Syra, the 7th August: l opal Pacha has miscarried in h* attack upon the Isle of Samos, for the third tjm«, and, after having two frigates and two brigs burnt by tho Greeks, was obliged to retire to the inters of the Scio. If this intelligence should tum out true, Samos will bo saved for thisyoar, and the moral impression, whicli the failure of this on. terprize will make upon the Greeks, will prob ably prevent a renewal of it. Sept. 7.—The following intelligence from Bucharest is of tho 15th ult: “Terror alone seems to prevent an explosion amongst tho Mus sulman, who are exasperated beyond all bounds by the introduction of the new system. The Sultan and tho Seraskior, Grand Visir, contin ue to be the objects of the most bitter sarcasms; ™° ^ u ' t£UI ’ however, appoars regularly at the Mosque. Amongst the individuals recently ex ecuted on tho charge of conspiracy against the Sultan are 75 Topschis; as tothc ancient Janis saries, Agas, who wero created Chamberlains for the purposo of drawing them to tho capital, seven wore beheaded a few days after their arri val. The populace,who suffered themselves to bo gained over in tho beginning by the cheap ness of provisions, now murmur, and tho future assumes every day an aspect more threatening. The affairs of tho Greeks in the Morca appear improving, and Ibrahim Pacha, who wants botli troops and provisions, cannot undertake any great operation." Extract of a private letter of the 16th ultimo, from Hermanstadt: “Personslikely to bo well informed, state that the Grand Duke Constan tine is about to travel abroad. This rumour hns produced a stronger sensation than the in telligence of the eternity of the ncgociato'ons at Ackerrman, which seem to take the turn wish ed for, but which will ho endless. The glo rious Sultan, who neither smokes nor takes snuff, and'who allows the use of wine to his regular soldiers, has not yet succeeded in en- ollin rolling 6,000 men: the same faces are paraded through the streets of Pera, in order that the Foreign Ministers may know and inform thoir Courts that his Ilighuess has troops disciplined a VEuropean.” Tho German paper printed nt Paris gives in telligence from Warsaw, by express, dated Aug. 28.

Tho journal in question dooo not mention the object of this meeting, but as let ters from Germany of an unciont date havo af- firmed that a certain coolness existed between the two brothers, it appears probable if this nows be true, that the consorts of tho two con jointly have sought the intervention of tho King of Prussia, who is a near relation of tho Imperial Family, to bring about a reconcil iation.
