Holdridge, arrived at New- York on Tuesday, from Liverpool, bring­ ing London dates to the 26th ult. and Liverpool to the 28 th. A dreadful accident took place at Ports­ mouth, at the lime ofthe launch ofthe ship Princess Charlotte. A bridge over one of the docks, which was crowded with spectators, gave way, and precoipi- tated all who were on it into the water. It is supposed that not less than thirty persons were lost. It was confidently rumoured and cred­ ited by the London papers that the cab­ inet had decided against a dissolution of Parliament. G reece .—We have copied at length a manifesto of the Greek government, placing, or rather offering to place the country under the protection of Great- Britain. The Liverpool Advertiser, in commenting upon this document, says— “ to have implored of Great Britain to undertake the task of defending the in­ dependence of Greece, would have been in intelligible style, by placing volunta­ rily, and as if doing a magnanimous fa­ vour, the sacrsd deposit under the de­ fence ofGreat Britain, but really it seems to us, as far as we comprehend its mean­ ing, something ludicrous.” The London Sun of the 26th ult. says: The German papers received last night contain interesting and highly satisfacto­ ry intelligence from the seat of war in Greece, in letters dated respectively from Constantinople, Trieste, and the coast of the Mediterranean. By these letters it appears that the Divan has been thrown into considerable alarm by some unfavourable accounts which hilVC bcei] receiv e d from th e A r c h ip e la g o , and by tb e f a c t ibat th e g o v e r n m e n t o f N a p o l i had solicited the protection o f this c o u n ­ try. News of this natura it will be readily perceived, could not but excite the most lively apprehensions of the Divan, the ^ 7 * 7 ™ a^ M U lU even of I T 3 fdnristianity which they profess, have not observed a condu 2 t con­ formable to the rules laid down and es­ tablished by themselves, and that this il­ legal conduct has given rise to a variety of political disputes divergent in their nature and character; Considering that some of these agents endeavour, by the intrigues of emissaries whom they send into the interior of Greece, to excite among the Greeks sen­ timents contrary to the spirit and the forms of Government—sentiments which suit only the intentions and interests of these agents; Considering that the commanders of the naval forces of some governments o p p o s e a n u m b e r o f unjust p e r s e c u tion s and ob s tacles to the regu lar p r o c e e d in g s ofthe Greek m a r ine, & to its m o v e n r e n ts, though conformable lo the rules of the laws of all nations, all in violation of the neutrality declared by the sovereigns at the congresses of Laybach and Verona. Considering, with lively grief, that the Christians themselves arm against the disciples of the Gospel, to succour the followers of the Koron, and that a multi­ tude of European officers, contrary to all principles of peace and all sound morali­ ty, hasten from distant countries to in­ struct the latter, and lead in person the armies of th* barbarians, who corrfe to lay waste, with fire and sword, the land which covers the mangled bones of a Ci- mon and a Samado, of Leonidas and Boz- zari, of Philopomen and Nicelas ; Considering that the government of Great Britain, happy in guiding a free people, is the only one which observes a strict neutrality, without designing to fol­ low th e m a n i f e s t v i o l a t i o n s , a n d o f th o s e distinctions so c o n t r a r y to r e a s o n , w h i c h others have practised in Greece, at Con­ stantinople and in Egypt.

Maj. Gen Morrisson. The city C o n t a i n e d 90,000 inhabitants two days before its capture, nearly all of whom fled before the surrender. It is mention­ ed that d u r i n g the engagement a s h o t struck the scabbard of Gen. .Yforisson’s fword which knocked him off his horse, without injuring him in any material way. The main army under Sir Archibald Campbell had been compelled to make a retrogade movement of f orty miles in consequence ofthe division under Gen. Cotter. Sir Archibald had invested the place into which the Bundloo had thrown himself, with about JO 000 troops, and hoped speedily to take the place. The Burmese had made two desperate sor- tees with their w a r elephants, but were driven back. 100 pieces of cannon were ready to open their fire upon the Bur­ mese. It was reported that a ship of war was .preparing in England to take out a new governor general of India, and (hat his grace the duke of Buckingham, had ac­ cepted the appointment. M a n i f e s t o o f t h e G r e e k N a t i o n . Napoli di Romania , August 2. — The clergy, and the representatives of the people, the civil officers and the milita­ ry officers, both of the navy and army, of the Greek nation. Considering, that authorised by the in­ alienable rights of Nationality, and on -those of private property, as well as on the ruling principles of religion and the independence of nations, and moved by the sentiments implanted in man for the preservation and safety of his own exis­ tence, the Greeks have taken arms to appeal the justice of their cause ; that du­ ring the space of more than four years they have struggled with perseverance a- gainst the combined land and naval for­ ces which have come from Europe, Asia and Africa ; that in the midst of the most imminent danger, they have sometimes destroyed the very superior forces of their enemy, and sometimes even entire­ ly annihilated them; and that, though destitute of the resources necessary for this great enterprise, they have at length succeeded in stealing their rights at the expense of the most precious blood of the nation,.and in convincing the civili­ zed world what can be effected by a peo­ ple truly resolved to re-conquer its in­ dependence. Considering that the very results of this unequal struggle have only confirm­ ed, in th* mind of the nation, the reso­ lution which it has irrevocably adopted to establish its political existence ; Considering that th* agents of some of deplorable consequences which the na­ ture of the contest has brought with it, and its long duration, two causes which have rendered this alternative inevitable. Considering, lastly, that since a spe­ cial favour of Providence has placed the forces of Great Britain so near us, Greece ought to take advantage of it in time, and founding its hopes on the jus­ tice and humanity which animate that great power : For t!be reasons, and in the intention of placing in safety the sacred rights ofthe liberty of (he state, and of our po­ litical existence, which has sufficiently consolidated, the Greek nation, pre­ scribes, resolves, d e c r e e s , and approves as follows : “ Art* 1 . By virtue of this act, it vol­ untarily places the sacred deposit of ih liberty, its nation ii independence, and its political existence, under the absolute defence of Great Britain. “ Art., 2 .

In consequence of the independent course which I pursued last week, in opposing the mo­ nopoly of the Yates family, I caused several “ wounde.i Pig-V is” to flutter, and according­ ly have been culled upon to settle various small affairs which I expected to cancel in the way of trade. My Patrons, (I mean my intel­ ligent and independent patrons, not those who seem to have aided me from self-interested mo­ tives,) are requested to discharge whatever may be due from them, as soon as practicable, so that I may satisfy the avarice of the Shy locks, who would fetter my Press with the chains of Henry Yates, Jr. and his worshippers, n Rile* I hare the control of the Mohawk Sentinel, it shall never be prostituted to the base purpose o f supporting' a m an, w h o , alth o u g h rich from th e favors o f R e p u b licans, w o u ld endea- or to depru e an independent Republican Press of the means of subsistence. . GEQRGE RITCHIE, Jr. A new way of supporting the party .—As Mr. Yates pretends to be a Republican, the least that we could ask of him, would be to support a Republican Paper, which was got up by a few individuals, during the most gloomy period, & when Republicans were in the minority. How­ ever. so far from supporting the Sentinel, he has done all in his power to destroy it. Both he and David Loyd, in their official capacities, as Judges, have refused, at the request of in- solv ents, to make out their orders for this pa­ per, in two cases, now within our recollection. They also lately refused to attend to insolvents who having made an agreement for ad ertising, in this paper, wished their notiees to be made out accordingly. We .have, indeed, | come to a deplorable state of things, when pol­ itics is to place itself on the judgment seat.and when a poorinsolve.it is to be denied the right of publication in a paper he may choose.- 8 y what authority these Honorable Judges dared to deny publication in th‘i3 paper, is a matter to be settled by their own consciences—the peo­ ple will form their own opinions. I cannot fail to return my thanks to those who came Sc subscribed for my paper, since my j la st number. It was a gratifying proof of pub- I lie opinion to see the Farmers who have b.een i cheated out of their representation, add their j names in support of a journal which but for them might have been smothered into silence by the Shy locks of this city, H'nry Yates Jr. and company. The wounded Pigtons flutter .—It is rumoured that Henry Yates intends to resign,we hope not, we would like to give him a few more proofs o f our affection , before h e obeys the voice ot the People, ——— lo Glenville Henry Yates, Jr. pretends to be a Clintonian.—Q,uere —Is he so in other parts of the county ? Let tbe committee who called upon him last year tell what he said to them. Manchause i out M mchaustntd .— The following story fur exceeds any tiling which we have ever met with in tfie way of ludicrous lying. The sailors wind in which it required ten men to hold one man’s hair on, is nothing to i t ; the tele­ scope, by which not only the buttons on a man’s coat at ten miles were counted, but his conversation heard, fulls far short of this incredible of all incredibles paper . From a late German Paper. “ In an imperial city, lately, a crim­ inal was condemned to be beheaded, who had a singular itching to playing at nine pins. While his sentence was pronoun­ cing,he had the temerity to offer a request; to be permitted to play one more at his : favourite game at the place of execution, and then he said he should submit with­ out a murmer. As the last prayer of a dying man, his request was granted. Wnen arrived at the solemn spot, he found every thing prepared, the pins be­ ing set up & the bowl being ready. He played wiith no little earnestness, but the Sheriff at length, seeing that he showed no inclination to desist, privately ordered the executioner to strike the fatal bluw j as he stooped for the bowl. The execu­ tioner did so, and the head d’opped into . the culprit’s hand as he raised himself; he immediately aimed at the nine, con­ ceiving it was ihe bowl which he grasped. All nine falling, the head loudly exclaim- ! ©d, « By —-— I have won the game.” If Henry Yates persecutes a poor printer now, what is to be expected from him, if the people confer power upon him ? Patent Republicans .—The Royal Family rtiust have received their pol tical creed from the clouds. One day Federal, another day Clinto­ nian, and another day Bucktail —and what they will be to-morrow, it is impo-sible to say. Gen. Root once said, “ the Yates’s are like a petit jury, they always find far themselves first.’’ We trust the Electors of the county, the honest Yeomanry who have been cheated out of their representation, will be the jury this time, and find as conscience directs. The Ftm ily .—The last hopes of the Dynasty depend on the success of the coming election ; but the people will no longer be insulted, and if we m-.stake not, this will be their expiring struggle. Stand by your faith, ye independent electors. Head Quarters .—Orders have been issued by the Schenectady Reg enrv for the Ponirid'.rs. lo scatter the money like chaff before the wind. W onder how much of the money realized by Henry Yates, from the sale of the Common Lands, will be consumed this Election. Caution .—The honest Yeomanry, we are told, arc to be assailed, som e with the threats; some with the promises , & some with the money of the Yates family. Of this latter article we must confess they have much to spare, but we cannot be made to believe that men will be bought from their faith, when founded on so much honesty and principle. The Albany Da.ly Advert.ser says that Mr. . - P r iu t e r , WttS subject to the C I Yates 1 ; m a quandary, and knows n ot to which • 0f such a master as you ttcknowl - party he belongs.
