are on the retreat. They suf

We arc induced entirely to
credit this intelligence, as the
necessity of the retreat was an
ticipated in previous advices,
and its commencement stated
ev en in one of the Russian Bul
letins. The event shows that
the Russians have involved
themselves in difficulty; and
also indicates the firmness of
the Turkish garrison. It is
stated likewise, that Varna is
about to he relieved by Husse
in Pacha; and the prospects of
Russia appear to he far from
flattering. On this subject the
London Sun remarks:

The Turks are still iti the in

.ahum had been excited bv the
landing of the Kussians near
Bmi gas. On receiving this
news the Grand Vizier stopped
at Adrianoplc. He appears to
have entered into concert with
t’U'Sein lacha to attempt to
v cji. vc Varna. The measures
for the dt fence of the capital are a< t- i
ively prosecuted. On the 7th of Sep
tember* 13,000 kindish cavalry land
id at the Dardanelles, and at the en
virons ’of Constantinople took the
road to Shuinla, hut the taxes in the
capital continue to increase, and busi
; ness is at a stand. Great care, how
ever, is taken to provide for wants of
the people. The Caituacan has late
ly made a general inspection of ba
kers* Shops; on this occasion 20 ba
; kers were nailed hy the cars to their
own doors. During this cruel opera
lion several of them smoked their
pipes with the greatest indifference.

It now appears decided that our
troops will retirn from the Morea,
after Ibrahim Pacha has embarked.
This is certainly important, as it does
away with all hostile views on the
part of the French Government in the
Mediterranear and in Kgypt; it also
proves that Fiance continues in the
greatest friendship with England.

Awkwardness in Eating and Drinking.
Is it not absurd that a man can t even
take a glass of wine without an appear
ance of infinite difficulty and pain? Eat
ing an Egg at breakfast, we allow, is a
difficult operation, but surely a glass of.
nine after dinner should be as easy us it
is, undoubtedly, agreeable. The egg lies
under many disadvantages. If you
leave the egg cup on the table, you have ‘
to steady it with the one hand and carry
the floating nutriment a distance of about
two feet with the other, and always with
a confoundedly small spoon, and some- 1
times with rather unsteady fingers. To
avoid this, you take the egg cup in your
hand and every spoonful -have to lay it j
down again, in order to help yourself to!
bread: so upon the whole we disapprove
of eggs, unless, indeed, you take them in
our old mode at Oxford; that is, two eggs I
smashed up with every cup of tea, and.
purified with a glass of hot rum.
But the glass of wine—-can any thing he 1
more easy? One would think not; but if
you take notice the next time you empty,
a gallon with a friend, you will see that,
sixteen to one lie makes the most convul
sive efforts to do with ease what a person
would naturally suppose was the easiest
thing: in the first place, how hard he
grasps the decanter, leaving the misty!
marks of live hot fingers on the glittering
crystal, which ought to be pure as Come- ;
lia s fame? Then remark at what an acute:j
angle he holds Ids right elbow as if he,
were meditating an assault on hi* neigh
hi m's libs; tl cn see how he claps the
t t !c down again, as it” his object was
to shake the pure liquor, and make it mud- 1
dy a-< his own brains, Mark how the
animal seizes his glass—he will break it !
in a thousand fragments! see how he bows ’
his lubberly head to meet half way the
glorious cargo; how he slobbers the beve
rage over his unmeaning gullet, and
chucks down the glass so as almost to
break its stem after he had emptied it of
its contents, as if it had been jalap or
castor oil! Call you that taking a glass
of wiuef Sir, it is putting wine into your
gullet as you would put small beer into a
barrel—*hut it is not—oh, no! it U not

LA US DEO! 7
The election of Gen. Andrew Jack
son to the Chief Magistracy of the Unit- i
ed States, is now certain. We never had
the least doubt about the result—but the (
overwhelming majorities he has received,;
and is receiving, in almost every State we
hear from, have, we must admit, most a
greeably surprised us. On an event so
auspicious to the well being of our gov
ernment, we do heartily congratulate the
old and staunch Republicans of the J< fter
sonian School. They have gained a mo
ral victory—they have achieved a triumph
of principle—which will fix ou r political
institutions upon a firmer basis than ever.
In the retirement of Mr. Adams and
Mr. Clay, we wish them all the happiness
they can possibly enjoy. The former
gentleman is politically annihilated—re
quiescet in pace: The latter, but for his
unfortunate connexion, would at this tune,
had he served bis country “wi*h half the
zeal he served the King,” occupy a larg
er space in the public eye than any man
“ANTI DUELLING ”
On this subject we publish in this morn
ing’s Cabinet , the proceedings of a Meet
ing at Milledgeville, composed of a num
ber of distinguished individuals from va
rious parts of our State. The object in
view, as far as it goes, is certainly lauda
ble; and will, no doubt, receive the hear
ty concurrence of every advocate of phi
lanthropy and good order.
Although we should like to sec the* ex
tirpation of this only formidable remnant
of Gothic barbarity which’ ooiv lingers
among us, yet we cannot refrain from of
fering our dissent to the popular opinion,
that “Municipal regulations (or civil e
naotments) are inadequate to reclaim the
evils of duelling.*’—Let the Law declare!
duelling a CAPITAL offence—or, should!
such an edict be considered too sanguina-<
ry, let a penalty be imposed sufficiently;
degrading in its character to push the of
fender without the pale of society—and
our life for it, if the law be ENFORCED,
this species of Chivalry would soon be
come extinct, or of such rare and infa
mous occurrence as would forever pre*
dude its recognition in the attractive garb
of an honorable custom.
In this country we know no higher tri
bunal than the laws—public opinion, un
assisted by their salutary influence, must
always be inefficient in its operations.—
Private Conventions or Associations, are
not clothed with those imposing and so
lemn responsibilities which so peculiarly
belong to the Legislature and the Judicia
ry— they may, indeed, do much good in
meliorating the general morals of society;
but to suppose that their influence is par
amount to the influence of the latter, ar
gues, in our mind, an ignorance of human
nature and a departure from those con
ventional bonds instituted by a common
consent for the preservation of the social
However, as it appears that the moral
; condition of the country is not yet ripe

offenders against her ptaco and safety, as 1
Duellists emphatically aie, we must con
tent ourselves, as it is the only alterna
tive before us, with throwing our mite in
to the scale of the contemplated Societies
and wishing them “God speed.”

counties at our last general is as
strongly marked in the late returns of the
