Though all the sabjects that are going to be discnsscd bj the Cortes are of soxnueh importance, the fact itself of their benT^ assembled to �lisruss them is still more so.

A letter from Moldavia di'scribes the cruelties coni- niilied by the Tnrks in that province and in Wal-iachii.

VIENNA,' SEPTEMBER 98. It is almost, gejterally, belisvedlhat': the peace betweeii Russia atid the Porte will not be interrupted ; it is even Uioifght these Pwwers will sodu; conre to U detinttive arr*'g a,- whs bUo making preparaiions for his departUie. Saiih Pacha, who has received from the Porte ^the most amjile powers, was to remain with 800 men. On, the 7tli he caused a Firman of tlie Grand -Signior to be 'publislied at Jassy, in wliicli'ail the inhaUitiuits of the country who sli-all return to ,tlielr duly are assured, and that Commandant enjoined to proti-cl them, by maintaining strict discijiliue amongst tlie troops under his orders. " The greatest, confusion pvevatlj* in the Adroi-nistralio", and it is not seen how it can be remedied before. the return of the buyurds of the first class, who alone are acquainted with its resoitrce!". " The insurgent troops have abandoned the flat country and the convents where they have hitherto maintained their position, and hjve retired into the narrow pas.-es of the mountains on the frontiers, viliere they are hlocked up b}' some inconsiderable Turkiaii corps." NUREMBERG, OCTOBER 3. The Journals whicji liiive duriiifr six months announced immediate war between Russia and Turkey, have reiracied with more or less of bad grace. Tile Correspondent of Nuremberg has inserted the following reclauialioii :-. � Riga, September 17. " We have rejid with silonishment the news t�iven by sfverul joijrnais respecting the pretended movements of the Turks, of which we, who are proximate, have not heard a single word. We [lar-licipiited in the views of those who regard a war between Russia and the Porte as almost impossible to be avoided. Bat this opinion was founded upon an examination of gvenl political interest', and iiot upun the. trifling news with which each journal amuses its readers, according to llisir several tastes. Thus, lately, one of these prints cited as. proof of the near commencement of war, that the Imperial guards and other regiments catitoned along the Dwina, drew from the magazines the means of subsistence every five days, from wherce it was concluded that they momentarily expected the order to mKrch for the soutliern frontier. " It is very true ihul those troops received their rations, both of food and- fcrage, in the intervals of time described ; but as this has always been the custom in Russia, nothing can be inferred from it. Moreover, these troops have, in each Order of the Day, directions lo hold themselves in readiness to inarch in twenty-four houvg; but it did not at all follow that they were aclnally. to march.- It is a tnere ordinary form, which has for its purpose the reminding of the soldier of the duly of being always prepared for war. If. these instances prove the ignorance of the newsmongers, in regard to our military institutions, we see al.-o that these gentlemen, in causing an army to march in a right line from the banks of ihe Dwiiia to the soulhern frontier, prove that they know absolutely iiothing of the stale and direction of the great roads of Russia, and particularly of the military routes. Those circumstances render it physically impossible lo conduct an army, with all which appertains, to it in a right line from the batiks of the Dwina to lho.se of the Pruth. THE BRITISH P.RESS. LONDON, MONDAY, October 15, 1821. We have received Madrid Papers to the 2d inst. It "ppears from them that the yellow fever increases in Spain, and that the only hopes of chrckins its piogiess are placed in the coldness of the weather that may be expected at this time of the year. The contagion had attained an alarming heiglit before any disclosure of its existence was made public, the Government being anxious to prevent the publication of a fact which, if generally kiinwii, must seriously alfect its commercial relaiions. The ac-connls of the state of the contagion, coming from Spjin, cannot, tiierefore, be suspected of exaggeration. Tiiat it has assumed an alarming character, competent to excite the most serious apprehensions ill neighbiiuring countri< s, sufficiently appears from the |)recautioiis taken in France, Ei'glipid, mid every other country in Europe, in communication with Spain, to prevent the introduction of the coiy tagion from that countij'. The regular opening of the Session of the Spanish Corte.� had been fixed i'or the 11th of Qcto,brr. The King, however, lias thought it advisable to anticipate "the time, by convening an extraordinary sitting of the Coites on the 24th last. On that day the Coites met accordingly. The King, in his speech from, the throne, recommended to llieir atteuiion the trade of the country, and the state of Spanish America; but the prjncijwl oliject appears to be the coinple-tion of the new coustitutional system. The answer of tli^.Cortes shews that this latter subject totally engrossed their attentiqn, and thai, compared wiih it, eyery other TOusideratipn was of little or no iip-porlance. They say, his Majesty, by voluntarily meeting llie representatives of the nation, ug-iin-rati--fies his solemn engiigementj, and receives in tlm J'ace of tlie world unequivocal testimonies ofniulnBl love and confidence. Tlie Spanish nation, which equally ahhors despotism and anarchy, thougli dcsirons of liberty, asks only such liherty as may be founded �on the laws, and never degenerate into licentioos-ness ; it will have no government but a limited mo-Jiuirc/i^i, such. as the Coiistilution. lias citablishetlj and it entert-dins the most, unbounded love and respect towards his Majesty's sacred and iiuioUhle person," The .steady and uniform spirit displayed by Ihe Cortes, in their exertions to estahli.ji !|.,: freedom ol' their country, and the decliiiiuif euei,-gies of its enemies, encourage the most sanguine hopes of its ulii.nate success. The same coursel if steadily pursued, must in a little time place the new Constitution beyond the reajjii of it? enemies, the wretelies "ho lived upon thesnper-. stiiioii, the ignorance, and the corruption of tlieir country. It is only when llie foundation is bad that the superstructure, which has withstood the first assaults, has any thing to fear from their repetitioi.'* We have received the Paris Papeis of Wednesday and Thursday last. Their contents respecting Turkey are decidedly pacific. They state that the most perfect tranquillity prevails at Constantinople, that the Porte has granted an amnesty to the Greeks, and neglects nothing tiiat may conduce to the preservation of peace with Russia. The evacuation of Moldavia by the Turkish troops is confirmed, and it is generally believed at Vienna that a definite arrangenjent between that Power and Russia will soon take place. It was lately stated that the defeat of the Turkish fleet by the Greeks was fully confinned: it is now stated that the report of I his defeat is totally destitute of foundation. From this perplexingcourse of confident usseriioiis on one day that are met by equiilly confident contradictions on the liext. tiie mind can draw no conclusion on, which it can rest witli satisfaction. Accounts, it is S'lid, were r%?ce'n;ed on Saturday,-announcing the ariiviil of the Kino, 'k^ high health and spirits, at f-Ianover. He entered Hh city at nine o'clock at night, last Monday. The towji was all life and,splendour; the streets were illumifated..r the military drawn out on duty, the guns fired, the bells, riipg,'and the po|)ulalion flocking from all sides towatjis the barrier through whicV;his Majesty entered-all appeared animated jitb the most loyal and citycclionate enthusiasn.- Notwithstanding the distance frotn Brusselj tfr Hanover, and the rapidity with which the JAng. travels, bis, health had not in. the least si^fered beyond the ordinary fatigue consequent uijjn the-movement and confinement of-a carring5r;^[rtl "-"co of this his Majesty had less uppei\riinc� than ij^ost of those who composed his suite.
