The population of the - territory is 20 000 souls, being an increase, in one year, of nearly, 0000 inhabitants. A public meeting was held at Hudders field, in Yorkshire, on the 8th of November, to consider the best means of promoting <i 0 Itadical Reform.” Forty-four flags were displayed, bearing a variety of figures, cm- Wombs and inscriptions; among which were the following. A figure of justice; “No Corn laws— death or liberty'; arm yourselves against ty- laols.”—Wolf devouring a Lam—“ Coun trymen be firm”—crown and laurel—*“ li berty and justice.” Flag in four compartments, with figures #o each; aml ( m one— May never a cock in England crow,, Nor never a pipe in Scotland blow, Nor never a harp in Irelutid play, “ Till Liberty reigns the day.” Jl black fag with while borders.

After the address was mad, Mr. Cobbett replied to it in a speech of about half an hour in length.— The tone of’it was mild and conciliating.— He earnestly recommended a peaceable and patient deportment on. the part of the peo ple ; he spoke of the. necessity of a Radical Reform in Parliament, and declared, that having watched the conduct of Rulers of all Staft^, and studied the form of their govern ments—it was his decided conviction, that that of England, consistingof king, lords and commons with a people fairly represented, was the best which could possibly be devised, ami no other would he advocate, or wish to see established.” *tgtL RE CL M1LLKDUKVILLE, j From a London Paper. PERSIA. Tne following is an extract from thelettcrof a French OJtcer in the Persian service, dated August 17,1819. “We are all here very happy, with Prince Abbas Mirza. This heir to the throne ot Persia is one of the handsomest men, and the most generous 'Princes whom it is possible to see. The Prince has made me his Aid-de-Canip.

It is equally advantageous to both countries. A cession of some of tue provinces bor dering on the Caspian Sea, appears, on the contrary, to rank amongst the impos sibilities. The will of the people is as hostile to it as that of the Sophi, and the cteditary Prince appears altogether opposed to it. A report which hm as sumed more consistency here, is rela- tve to the re-cstablishruent of the king- 0ln °f Armenia, with the common con sent of Persia, Russia, and Turkey.” Some part of this letter, if it beauthen- ,c > and if the writer had means of know- ln g the truth ef what lie states, (two irn- portant qualifications,) are deserving of attentive consideration. It is there said, a a treaty which is to secure to Rus sia a free and commercial passage to ln- 'a and the Persian Gulf, experiences no o'mculty, because it will be mutually ad- j ) " 1 ageous to both countries. r l*hismay v ery true, hut how would such treaty affect he road which mercha The'--””* °. u . r .Possessionsirrthc East ?

It i lunate for the general prosperity ot country, that our brethren of the N should evince towards those of the Sou. such a spirit of illiberality, such a dispositit to aggrandize themselves at our expense, > may sew the seeds of discord between mem 1 , bersoftlie same family, and produce event ually, the most mischievous consequences. Much has been said and written about what is called the Missouri Question. The territory of Missouri, now requiring admis sion into the union as an independent state, was included in Louisiana, as our readers know, when it was ceded to the United States by France. The people of that ter ritory then held slaves, they still have them, and a large majority of the population are averse to parting with their negroes * but the Eastern members of Congress, in conformi ty with the wiil of their constituents, en deavor to impose on Missouri, asa condition of her admission into the union, that invol untary servitude be prohibited. What would he the consequence of such prohibition, should their object be attained? The Spani ards St Frenchmen who occupied the coun try previous to its transfer, and persons who have since emigrated thither from the Ame rican states, carrying with them slaves, must give up that property or leave the territory. This may he agreeable enough to the feel ings of the New-Erigland farmer, who culti vates in regular succession the same fifty acre3 of stony land his forefathers tilled be fore him—but to the enterprising man of the West, who subdues the wilderness, fells the forest, and suffers all the privations and hardships of a frontier life, ’tis quite an other matter. Having purchased his slaves by the sweat of his brow,he does not choose to give up this property, so necessary for improving his lands, ’merely to gratify the caprice or prejudices of pretended philan thropists, whether of {Aid England or New- England. Our Yankee brethren are un questionably a very humane and charitable people; tint kind of charity and humanity, however, which costs them nothing, and is exercised exclusively at the expense of oth ers, has little but selfishness to recommend it. There is another view of this subject. If citizens of slave-holding states be excluded from Missouri, the competition in purchas ing the public binds of the territory will be at an end. 'l'lie country will be occupied al most exclusively by emigrants frotp the East, who will get land; on their oWWrrms, while the Southern people are paying for the national domain extravagant prices. The moire no,’ of Domestic Manufac tures is another favorite object, which, if car ried to tile extent desired by the Eastern people, will enrich them and impoverish the Southern planters. What do they ask ? That Congress lay such duties as will ex clude foreign articles, to enable our own Manufacturers to get rich by selling their goods at high prices—or, that the agricultu rists of the South shall from necessity buy the manufactures of the north, whether they like tlium or not, and at such prices too as may-suit the flexile consciences of northern manufacturers to charge for them. Why Ihe necessity of further protection from go vernment? Imported articles noiv-jiay such heavy duties as make them come dear enough to the consumer. But these duties must he increased, say they, to protect do mestic manufactures—Who protects the planter when the price of his cotton, his to bacco and his flour will not compensate him for the labor of producing them? We cheer fully barter our valuable staples, our cotton, rice and sugar, for the cheese, onions, cod fish and tinware of our Eastern brethren.— With equal cheerfulness shall we buy their fabrics of wool, of cotton and linen, when they come to us of as good quality and as cheap as wo can get them from abroad.

During the lust week, two men, Ita lians by birth, attempted to impose up on the charity of our Gits, bv represent ing themselves as objects of distress.— Their appearance being suspicious, they were closely examined by one of our ci tizens and not being able to establish their pretended claims, they deemed it prudent to decamp immediately ; appre hensive, no doubt, that their fraudulent intentions would soon hove been expos ed, and ihnt they themselves would have received that punishment which their unmanly and shameful conduct so richly merited. So little notice was taken of these gentlemen, and their departure was so sudden, that we are unable to describe their persons.— And we regret our inability to do so, as it prevents us more effectually from guardiugour fellow-r.i'.izrns at a distance, ag ainst so villainous an imposition.

St. Louis, Jan. 5. 13y late accounts received from Prairie du Chein and St. Peters, we learn that the Barracks at tlic Cantonment of St. Putin s are erected and the troops com fortably quartered for the winter. They have commenced ploughing for the next year, and will probably raise sufficient for the support of the troops during the 'ensuing season. The climate is mild and pleasant—aiui’.h more so than could he expected at 44 deg. 63 min. north. The soil is abundantly rich, and nature has prepared it for the plough. Grass is also in great abundance, and sufficient for any quantity of cattle. The expenses of this highly itnpor- lant and interesting expedition have been very small. Several specimens of copper and iron ore have been found, and large quanti ties of both exist without boabt in the country. Game is procured in great abundance.

One of the members of the present H of Representatives in this state was indie as guilty of a felony in the stale of Indiana about two years ago, for seizing and bringing aw ay his own slave. Since the commence ment of the. present session of tlic General Assembly, the Governor of Indiana has, for the first time, made a demand on the Gov ernor of this state to deliver up this gentle man lor trial. What does Coeernor Jen nings mean ? Does he inter-1 to insult the state of Kentucky by dragging her repre sentatives from the I.egislativo floor to be tried as criminals for reclaiming their own property ? We wilf not indulge in the re marks which this occasion suggests; but if our sister state wishes to maintain the friend ly relations which ought ever to exist be tween the members of o’ r confederacy, we trust, they will prevent the repetition of such demands. A bill is already before our House of Re- ircsentatives to cheek this abuse of the.ta ut a fy power to reclaim fugitives from jus tice, vested in the states by tlie constitution of the Union.
