RUINS OF BABYLON. f The editors of the Mercantile Advertiser are indebted to Dr Samuel Mitch ill for the following interesting communication: The arrival of Capt. Henry Austen, of the ship Persia, from Asia, has afforded a most curious and uncommon treat to our biblican antiquarians and historians. This gentlemen is equal in intelligence and enterprize to any traveller that ever went forth to foreign parts. While he was navigating the Persian Gulf, he conceived the bold design of ascending the river Euphrates, from Barsa to Bagdad With great expense and labor, and at the risk of his life, from the difficulties of the ascent, and the barbarous character of the inhabitants, he penetrated Persia five or six hundred miles.

FOREIGN SUMMARY. [Newspaper Article] — The Genius of Liberty — 20 January 1817
FOREIGN SUMMARY. We have a mass of foreign intelligence of a very interesting character, particularly us it respects England. Large meetings continue to be held in vari-, ous parts ol the kingdom—The friends | of flarliamentaru reform are rapidly gain- i ing strength—The citizens of Glasgow have held a meeting in an oftenfield, at '1 brush Grove ; ahe provost of the city refused them every accommodation within doors and even attempted to prevent them from meeting without. The resolutions of this meeting were temperate yet firm, dignified and manly—we very much regret that their very great length excludes them from our columns. JingUnd suffers great embarrassments, and the people complAin as feelingly and as audibly against tythes and taxes. There is nothing else but railing or grieving in poetry and prose. We see a “New Litany” adapted to political misery. “The Tears of Britain,” Sic. and an address “To the most impudent man living ” Castlereagh deplores “the embarrassments and d.if...

GENIUS OF LIBERTY. LE E S B UKG, VIRG I ATT A . Monday, January 20. Our paper in future will be issued on Monday until we find an alteration ex•edient. On our first page will be found the ciru'ar of the secretary of the treasury. It Oi ghy interesting to those concerned linking institutions, and also to the ’“blic in general. It appears that the lOvernment are determined to persevere * tTle resolution of the last session of congress demanding specie, after the 20th of February next, in the collection of the revenue. Could all the banks simultaneously comply with this demand' we should feel elated, to perceive the golden age so rapidly approaching; but if the banks be not in reality ready to open their vaults on that day together, as anxious as we are to witness the resurrection of gold and silter, we would most willingly forego the pleasure a few months longer for the sake of harmony and concordance. It is presumed that no banking institution will have the pre. sumption to demand a ...

Slanbui, avaunt 1 thou two faced subterfuge; Howdar’st thou thus audaciously intrude Thyself within the pale of Sacred virtue ? Thou art the child of envy nurs’d by spleen— Thy tongue is ■dipt in vipers pois’nous blood. Away ! to thy cell of pitchy darkness. Thou scorpion I fraught with invidious hate: Go, feed thy wanton votaries with thy g«ll» And let them sip their venom from thy lips. Beware, ye unsuspicious sons, beware 4 There does not lurk below so foul a fiend, So subtle in his wiles, and yet so base; So void of ttruth and every honest thought.

And wantonly destroys domestic bliss Once more, beware 1 be wary, circumspect; . Lest arrayed in virtue’s shining garb, And clad with the habiliment of truth, You i...

&amp; much the better. A quack who had affected an unlucky phrase, and at every turn cried out. “So much the betterl” visiting a patient almost in. the agony of death, asked how he slept that night. “Not a wink, sir/’ ‘So much the better!'* cries the quack.
