HonKoit, SATURDAYi AUGUST 27. WE received last night by Express the Stoilc of Monday, and the Journal des Dehats and other Papers of Sunday. The Etoile contains among some vague 0 accounts a review of a translation of Dr. Lyall's introduction to his work of Mos- cow. After paying England some compli- •mewts, as being the country wjioseiaterests., are the most actively disseminated through- out the world, and of course the most cu- rious to inquire, and the most competent to iftdge, how affairs are conducted all the world over, the Journalist goes at great length into the system of military coloni- zation which has been adopted in Russia. After satisfying himself, (as indeed any person who had taken the trouble of think- ing pn the subject would have seen in a moment) that civilized countries have ne- cessity of such colonization, and need not fear its effects if adopted by other nations, lie makes the discovery that soldiers and passions are the chief cause of revolu- tions, but when ideas -and orators prevail revolutions are slow. This passes for deep reasoning in Paris, where, neverthe- less, they enjoyed, only thirty years ago, all the fruits of "des idees et deso rate ury. and one would think had got enough of them.
French Papers to the 25th inst. reached us last night by Express. They bring abundant intelligence from the Levant, but none which clears up the result of the struggle in the Morca. A plot, it appears certain, however, had been discovered at Napoli di Romania, which was deeply laid, but in which, to the honour of the Greeks let it he said, no individual of their nation was involved. It was entirely carried on by Turks, though from the cunning with which it was formed, thereis but too much reason to suspect that it had originated with some of their Christain frieni s. J.IL -wttiVrrr "«a" Mhd European cos- tume and possessing the European langua- ges and manners appeared five months ago at Napoli as an ardent friend to the liber- ties of Greece. He had large sums at his disposal and proposed to spend them, like a true Philhellenian, in raising a corps for the service of the country. Having passed some time in gaining the confidence of the people and the Government, he obtained the permission which he wanted, and be- gan to raise recruits. Amongst these re- cruits he took care to inroduce other Turks, disguised and practised like himself, and, had not a letter of his been fortunately intercepted, his object was to obtain the command of some important post at Napoli when the Egyptians should approach it, and to deliver it up to them: or, accordmg to other accounts, to spike all the cannon on the ramparts, and thus enable the ene- my to enter the town without a blow. It was the expectation of such a co-operation which probably induced Ibrahim Pacha to make his first rcconnissance of Napoli at the head of a small force to excite less suspicion. For it appears certain that he twice approached that city, once without attempting any thing, when he perceived that the plan had been discovered, or tlionght that his associates were not ready; and the second time when he made repeat- ed attacks with half his army on the Mills, and was repulsed with considerable loss.— This is, in fact, what has afforded a ground for the Constantinople newswriters and their friends at Vienna to assert that Ibrahim had suffered no defeat, before Napoli, and had only lost two men in his reconnaissance. They refer to his ■first appearance before that city, and carefully abstain from noticing the second. But notwithstanding their finesse they have exposed themselves for after declaring that Ibrahim had only presented himself with eighty cavaliers' and voluntarily re- tired toTripolizza without meeting with the least obstruction, they complain that "his attempt on the Mills would probably have succeeded had not the English and French assisted the Greeks during the ac- tion." This shows that there must have been some fighting, and that the issue of L' that fighting had been such as General IRoClIF, represe-iitedit, unfavourable to the Egyptians. Hence, from the accounts of tfce enemy themselves, we find that the original statement must, be correct, for whilst they speak of one event alone, they show that there have been two. With respect to the Turkish plotter at Napoli, he made a full confession after having been put to the torture, which we are sorry to see the Greeks have retained, and he was ul- timately condemned to perish in the flames,

The members of the CARNARVON- SHIRE AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY, are par- ticularly anxious to have it distinctly understood, that the fit-st and great object of the Society, is, the promotion of a general spirit, of Agriculture in the county of Cai-narvo?i; and being particu- larly desirous of encouraging Tenants and infe- rior Farmers, they have resolved that their Pre- miums shall be given to Tenants oidy and they are hereby invited to attend the several meetings of the Society, to state th;ir respective claims, with which the owners will not be allowed to interfere.. E. G. ROBERTSi Mr. Charlton's annual sale of racing-srock took pla ce at Ludford. on Saturday week. The ce- lebrity of the stud attracted a large company, and very high prices were given for some of the horses. Master Henry was bought in at the amazing sum of and Anticipation at 995 goinens. Sere" out of the tell yearlings advertised were sold for t.CSU guineas. A-it did not appear to be Mr. Charlton's will to sell any of the mares, one oniv was disposed pf hut though *.Vhe Ktfe universally adnured, and put up at the :mVp'drative low price (when put in compe- tition With the VearlingfOofSG guineas each, there were only two sold.

The earliness of the harvest this season will occasion the land to be cleared of all sorts of pulse and grain, long before the season for Part- ridge Shooting will commence the birds will therefore have no asylum for retreat, to preserve them fiorn the ravages o.f the if; it poacher.-— In ordtr to prevent nightly depredations, it is strongly recommended (by those who have tried the experiment) to catch one bird of each covey, and, after snipping off the point of OIle" of the claws, to let it go immedintely in the same field in which it-was taken; a Necessary pre- caution, in order that the hird fnay have an opportunity of again associating with its former companions. The wounded bird will ever af- terwards take wing at the smallest noise aad the rising of one bird, it is well known, will instantly occasion the springing of the whole covery. A writer in the Quarterly Journal of Sci- ence suggests a plan for constructing Sea Ponds. for the purpose of preserving and breeding a sufflcientstock of various species of fish for the public markets. It has been found that sea- fish will live and thrive in, and a so breed in ponds or inclosed waters and with resrard to many, it also appears that it is indifferent whe- ther the water be salt or fresh, or brackish, or alternately fresh and salt. This plan would bring the fish within our own power, to be taken alive when wanted, and from being better fed, in greater perfection and more uniformly good. Tlibre are three or four sea-ponds in Scotland where fish are thus kept: one in Orkney one ia the Frith of Forth and one in Galloway. This has recently been put to the test in Guernsey by Mr. Arnold in a pond of about four acres only many species of sea-fish are now thriving: all those which have had sufficient time have pro- pagated, and all have improved in quality, and many in a remarkable manner. The following curious anecdote of Jacob Be- bart, keeper of the physic garden at Oxford, oc- curs in one of Grey's tibtes to He made a dead rat resemble the common picture of dragons, by aitt-ring its head and-tail, thrusting in taper sharp sticks, which distended the skin on each side till it resembled wings. He let it dry as hard as posssible. The learned immediately- pronounced it a dragon and one of them sent an accurate description of it to Dr. Magliabecchi li- brarian to the Grand Duke of Tuscany; several ftne copies of verses were wrote on so rare a sub. ject; but at last Mr. Bebart owned the chetft. However, it was looked upon as a masterpiece of the art; and, as such, deposited in the Museum. A PERSUASIVE TEXT.—When the Duke of Ormond, whose family name was Bntler, went over as Ldrd Lieutenant of Ireland, the veas1 was driven by stress of weather into the Isle of Man, where his Grace was hospitably entertained by the Curate of the place, named Joseph. The pleasantness of his landlord induced the Duke to inquire into his circumstances, and finding that they were but scanty, he promised to provide for him as soon as he should be settled in the Vice- royship. Joseph waited inary months in hopes of hearing from his patron, but being disappoint- ed, lie resolved to go over to Dublin to remind him of his promise. Despairing of gaining access to the Duke,he applied Swift,and asked his permis- sion to preach at the Cathedral the next Sunday. The Doan delighted with his conversation, gave his consent. The Lord Lieutenant, with his Court were all at Church, and sat opposite the pulpil- None of them had any recollection of Joseph, till after naming his text, which was in Genesis xl. 23-" Yet did not the chief Bmllet- remember Joseph, but forgot him." He made so pointed an allusion to the Duke, and his entertainment in the Isle of Man, that his features were recogniz. ed i and when the sermon was done, he was in. vited to the Castle, and a good living provided for him. Hartlib. the friend of Milton, pensioned bv Cromwell for his agricultural writings, says, that old men in his days remembered the first a-ardeners that came over to Surrey, and sold turnips, carrots parsnips, early peas, and rape, which were then great rarities, being imported from Holland, Cherries and hops were first planted, he says, hi the reign of Henry VIII.; artichokes and currants made their appearance in the time of Elizabeth but even at the end of this latter period we had cherries from Flanders onions, saffron, and liquorice from Spain; and hops from the Low Countries. Potatoes, which were first known its these islands at about the year 15S6, continued for nearly a century to be cultivated in gardens as a curious exotic, and furnished a luxury onlv for tables of the richest person in the kingdom.
