By a. F. Morrison. Temps. Two doll an per annul in Silvan cd a tvs doll Ais Ami fifty Emu Al is three dollars at the end of the be Ifor Sii. From the v. S. Fri Asraph. Continuation of foreign advices. Tho Laic hour at which the foreign papers reached us yesterday prevented As close an examination of their contents and As extensive an abridge Eroen of their intelligence As we could Hwe desired. The a deficiency is now supplied. Report eat defeat of the Boles. In a Quot second Edh on Quot of the London Standard of the evening of May 0, we fed the following important but melancholy account of the state of the Campaign in Poland. The editor of the Standard says this account was received through a private commercial Channel and the authority May be relied upon. A Quot Gici. Diebitsch after having Defeated the poles at Biala marched direct upon Warsaw which town is since the 19th of last month declared in a state of seige the inhabitants Are willing to surrender in con so quince of an epic Nic which is raging in and about the town. The poles lost nearly 10,000 men and at the head quarters the general belief is that the War is at an end As another army is coming from Russia into this is the latest Dews from London. It May to True although we do not place much Confidence in it. Of one thing however tie re ran 1� no doubt Tho account of recent polish successes of the great Battle and defeat of the russians on the 15ih of april within forty Miles of Memelo of the occupation of Siedlec by the poles and the Retreat of marshal die Bitsih across the bugs Are Al Arras fictions. The whole Tenor of the intelligence received yesterday when carefully examined by dates and naps showed them to to such. And we cannot withhold our Surprise that intelligent editors on this Side of the water where no Slock Market is to be affected thereby should so readily contribute to misinform the Public As to the real state of the affairs of Poland. To a All to doubt feel alike on this we All rejoice when we see the nations of the old world rising in to of free men to break the chains of their oppressors and vindicate the rights which god gave when he made them. And our bosoms swell High with grateful emotions ill every successive Victory gained in such a cause. But because we thus Feci ii is no excuse for us As Public Jotin Alili to create false Hopes in the Public mind by Continua july reporting without doubt or contradiction Battles that have never Bee fought and victories never won. Take for instance one of these reports. And arrival at Dundee is stated to bring Quot a confirmation of the defeat of the russians by the poles on the 15tb of april Quot As follows Quot it had been reported and believed in Memel that a general engagement Between the russians under Diebitsch and the poles under Skrzynecki has taken place on the loth of april at Tho distance of about forty Miles from Memel that ii the course of the action 16,000 Lite Irani ans bad gone Over from the russians to the poles that the russians had Bocci completely routed that vast numbers of them had been killed wounded and taken prisoners and that they had lost nearly the whole material of their army including the military Chest full of now by a glance at the map and comparison of dates the entire falsity his article is Manifest at once. Memel is Strong town on the Baltic three Hun dred Miles from Warsaw. Diebitsch and Skrzynecki both with their main divisions were Between the a Bug and the Vistula in the neighbourhood of Warsaw at least to Hundred and fifty Miles live the scene of the reported Battle. And both those commanders had published official 1 the �7lh or april i cog to Lay tubs sent to the said Battle and providing tie Miari the possibility of a Dou melancholy slut in Jim of Poland. The now Bryslaw Gazette contains the billowing deplorable account of the state of Tho poles 80 late aside 21st of april we find it in Tho London Standard of the evening of May 6, under the Date of aug jump april 29 a travellers from Poland who have lately come from Lublin by Way of Warsaw cannot find words to describe the la in Citable condition of that unhappy coun try. Tho country beyond Tho Vistula which for the last ten weeks has been the theatre of the continual marches and counter marches of the hostile Nam ii a is dreadfully devastated the habitations near Tho roads partly demolished the a habitats fled into the forests the cattle and tiie Conwi ineds the liitle com used Lii Euse of the troops.

Though Itira joined for a jew a at the heroic exploit of Itano Svyet Nayolia iter of the fit Izena look Wilh ii i a he i Waitt n i e quarters that count Diebitsch Ces his official operations and having re Cei Vod fresh reinforcements is approaching Warsaw. The streets of the City Are put in a elate to Malte a Roost desperate resistance. The inhabitants go about gloomy and reserved or shut themselves in their houses for the slightest doubt in tie truth of the reports in the Leiv spa pers is 3ufiicient to make twin most respectable citizen to be to Olio on As a spy and put his life in danger. No Quipp age Are to be seen int lie streets that used to be so Ani rated at the most a Wagon Wilh Mih tary effects or wounded. Sickness increases ind some fears of cholera have been and manufactures Are quite suspended foreigners engaged in factories Endeavor clandestinely to leave the country because they Are drag id away to serve in the army. The left Ink of the Vistula does not present so melancholy a Prospect but even there scarcely a third of the Fields has been sown in consequence of the failure of the crops last year and the Scarcity of Good seed Orn. When the revolution broke out Lorn fall kinds was seized and conveyed to the army magazines were secretly sold it Low prices because Money was More easily concealed than Corn. But now that the solving Lime in Spring has come i Jere i no seed Corn to which we add our want if horses and oxen which Hove been Talen away from the poor citizens. Pro visions already begin to be scarce and unless timely precautions Are taken a fam nay be expected in Poland in a few months. A letter from Bialystok of the 6ih april says not a word of any Distur-b.ince3 in that neighbourhood. The grand Duke Constantino and the Princess of Lowitz had been there Ever since the end of february such Large bodies of troops from the Interior of Russia were passing that Way that All the villages were crowded and it was no Cussary to Lodge part of the troops in the following paragraphs Are quoted from a letter of the private Lorre Spond Ince of Tho London Standard dated Paris May 4. This is the latest Date from the French capital Quot from st. Pc Mersburgh we hear that the late events in Poland Are not by any Means considered As important and that the emperor has resolved on sending Large reinforcements and on proceeding much More slowly though surely in the task he has undertaken of pulling Down All Revo Lucions in the North of the Hamburgh Corre pendent slates that the prussian second corps o Armce is marching lot Ards Western Prussia where considerable Florea have been .

If we were not occasionally to furnish a few Sulci items our opponents of the Quot rank and file in Maryland could hardly Kenw nov thing of the stale of their own abroad. Their leaders have been in diverting their attention to int Wand Quot , that the neglected to let them know that Milams and just have both rallied from Clay. We warn them therefore not to commit themselves too deeply to the masonic sex Secretary of slate for i the signs fail not to the anti masonic they must come at last. It is curious to observe How marvellous a qui Ekener of perception a Little political disappointment is. While or. Rush was in full communion with the late coalition a National Republican to the top of the Bent a who so High in the eulogies of the Liest and most talented and respectable of All possible parties to was a statesman trained a fit to talk even with sir James Mcintosh a philosopher moreover and a political economist who could twist Adam Smith about his Little Finger and a father Grandfather or godfather the relationship to not settled of that prettiest of philosophical Bant Lings the american system.

Three or four weeks ago when by straining some expressions of Bir. Branch they thought they could extract political matter against the president they were in Exta cies with his course.

Bau. Rep. Or. Branch s last letter has taken Tho Clay men All Aback. They Are in a Cut ious predicament embarrassed How to reconcile what they have said Wilh what they now must say. They made or. Branch against his evident intention say that the president is destitute of Quot Wisdom firmness and Justice Quot and shouted ill Joy at what they Afi acted to consider a whelming testimony. They made him their own witness against his will after having shaped his testimony for themselves a and it turns out that he an Ersa Leaf 01 two too far for them.
