Indianapolis Indiana Journal (Newspaper) - September 29, 1830, Indianapolis, Indiana Vol. Vili. Published by Douglass amp Maguire. Terms. Two to chars per annul if paid in Advance. Three dollars at the end of the year. Advertisements inserted on the usual term?.indianapolis, wednesday sep Ember 29, 1830. No. 388. Constantinople. The editors of the n. York journal of Commerce have been favored with the following very interesting letter dated constantinople june 5th, 1830. A a have invariably enjoyed myself a nost when alone walking the streets of constantinople when my though iii could flow in her natural Channel and have at these limes obtained the most information. I went alone to the Baguio the other Day the turkish prison for offenders of every nation and Evert kind so vividly described by Hope in Anastasius. His picture 19 too highly coloured. There were two or three things in the Baguio that surprised me. One was a very Rich greek Chapel for those prisoners who might be piously , besides a mosque for those of the Mah Medan Faith. Another was a Bazaar for supplying those who have Paras Money to dispose of with articles of food and clothing. The prisoners were chained to each other by couples which i should judge would be inconvenient to both parties in some situations. The Baguio did not appear to me to be so terrible a place As described in Anastasius but when i visited it there was no plague and but few prisoners. From the prison i visited the Navy Yard and went on Board the Mah Moud a 140 gun ship larger than our boasted Pennsylvania ship of the line building at Philadelphia. There Are seven ships of the line at the Yard. The Battle of Navarino reduced considerably the Sultan s maritime Force but he has still a respectable Navy. The objects which immediately strike the View of a stranger in constantinople Are the pal ices of the sul tan on Seraglio Point and the mosques with their domes and minarets. I stood a Long time before the splendid pile of St. Sophia for to enter it is now impossible for a Christian and the reflection excited by a View of this building in which prayers were once offered to Christ were of a melancholy kind. The name of Mahomet is now heard prot claimed five times a Day from the minarets and a Christian is barely permitted to look upon the Interior of that edifice which in time past was dedicated to his own religion. But a few Steps from St. Sophia is the principal Gate of the Seraglio called the Sublime Porte which of course i was not permitted to enter. Here the Christian ambassadors hold their interview via with the Sultan and hence the term Sublime Porte has been transferred from the Gate itself to the emperor and his divan. Near is. Sophia is another Large m que with six minarets called Sultan aliment which was also a Chritsina a Church in the time of the constantines named St. Demetrius. Perli aps the most Beautiful mosque is that of Sultan so Lyman in the portico of which Are Many huge porphyry pillars. Directly in front of this mosque is a Row of Coffee houses before which sat those intemperate Mussulman who indulge in eating opium. The custom of Swal lowing this deleterious drug is not now general. But still a few were to be seen sitting in a state of insensibility under its influence with fixed glaring eyes and an expression of Fatu ity in their countenances. Not far Distant is a Lunatic Hospital ready 0 receive them when the last spark of intellect shall have been extinguished this visited also. The Square in front of St. Demetrius is trim tented with an egyptian obelisk of Quot Granite upon the sides of which Are Many grotesque figures the Bronze serpents broken stand near it. In the hippodrome i saw some half a dozen of wild beasts which compose the menagerie of the Sultan have ii so visited the seven towers where foreign ambassadors have been confined and where is to be seen the great mortar in which the Heads of the Mufti the chief Mah Medan priests have been pounded the bazaars in Constantia Cople Are very extensive Anc splendid the Sweet Waters Quot Les Eaux do Ces Quot Are tie Pride of the inhabitants of Stani Boul and i have been asked a thousand times if 1 had seen them. I was obliged to go and see them in self defence. The Sweet Waters is a narrow River Ett pitying itself into the Golden Horn the Harbor of constantinople it runs through a Beautiful Valley in the Meadows of which were feeding the Sultan s horses. There May Haye been a Irio usand steeds grazing upon the Banks and of the finest arabian blood. I saw much to Admire in their delicate forms and Graceful motions. At the head of the Waters is a mosque a summer Pavilion and a Beautiful promenade Whert the Constantino Politsos amuse them selves on holidays. Yesterday morning in company with our very worthy townsman or. Charles Rhind who has succeeded in effecting a treaty of Commerce Between the United states and the Porte i was pulled up the bosporus to therapia 13 Miles from constantinople to witness the procession of the Sultan from his country Palace to the mosque. A Long file of turkish soldiers in their new costume was drawn up on each Side of the path extending a considerable distance from the Temple of Mahomet towards the Palace. We soon saw the Royal procession advancing Between those two columns and a More imposing porn Pous pageant i never before witnessed. It surpassed any thing 1 had Ever conceived of Eastern magnify rence. First came half a dozen Ltd horses the most Beautiful of their kind with the richest Trappe Iiga. Then followed two Cense bearers enveloped in Clouds of frankincense and myrrh. Then came a double Row of about 40 pages All boys in the most splendid dress of sky Blue embroidered with Gold with gracefully waving sipping particular we give the following As the substance of the Bio plumes of Ostrich feathers in their j graphical sketches with which the richly ornamented Caps. Between papers Are filled. These Rode the emperor in All his glory. I was within a Lew feet of him. He looked towards us and smiled. He is about the Middle size rather Stout and has a Jolly Bronze visage. When he Disi mounted and proceeded up the Steps of the Mosquit a crowd of grandees cried with a loud voice three times Quot Allah Allah Allah Quot he remained at his devotions about 20 minutes again mounted but on a different Steed and returned to the Palace followed by his attendants and the military band. I have the March which was played at the time and some Day you shall hear it. This is the first Lio Narch i Ever saw. A grander scene i never beheld. I was so de lighted that i followed the pageant until it was lost in the court of the Palace. A a Ness that she is alone on Earth childless and a widow. Quot of had he but life a could he but breathe a Mother name though he were but idiotic or decrypt a could he hut give one sign f recognition i would drag him fron it the House where new ones Rule and Ike the persecuted Hagar flee Awa it Vith him into the wilderness Good Angels would hear a Mother s cry and Waters would Spring up from the Burn ing Sands to moisten his parched lips but he is dead and the convulsive a pass of her face show that the life of a Mother even an Algerine Mother is bound upon the existence of her son. Is there one Mother in a Merica who can doubt that every Mother in Algiers who has lost a son in the Seiger How Many did lose son father husband a a Felt less than that what an aggregate of misery is a splendid Conquest. U. S. Gaz. Chelate King of England. The late King of eng tid his follies and his vices Are already spoken of with the greatest Freedom b the London press and while the fullest Praise is accorded to his conduct Iri administering the government when its Sovereign the error Sand profligacy of his life while a subject Are Bron Glit up and dwelt upon in the most unc Rennu Nious manner. Omitting these got taking of Algiers. In the devastation of War when cities and kingdoms yield to the sword of the conqueror it individual miseries Are lost sight of in the aggregate of sufferings that such events n the Broad Blaze of glory which the Conquest lights up no one stops to watch the going out of an individual taper of human life. The shout of the Host of victors drowns the death sigh of him who is yielding up his breath or his country s defence. Who is he and we put it to the consciences of our readers beseeching them to think As they would ask for sympathy in their own Afi Lii Lions who is he and Why not she for a it Ziad too Piunt know that her sex suffers when a City is stormed who is he or she that has read of the breaking up of the Quot nest of pirates Quot by the French that has seen the Quot sceptre depart from Quot Nishn Iaeli that has carefully read of the defence and its Cost of the Victory and the lives that purchased it that has afterwards sat Down and thought solemnly of the individual misery which a Conquest has produced come then let us enter into the House of affliction where the Mahometano Mother is kneeling Over the dead body of her Sony herself a widow her lips bathed in blood from the gaping wound on the cold breast before her and her streaming eyes raised toward the sacred Tomb at which her son had not yet bowed. No pen can Trace her feelings they Are the deep unutterable throbs of a Mother s heart the imagination of Man hath not t conceived her anguish. All a Mother s pains in birth and death Are hers alone. She has watched in vain for one sign of life she has called loudly to her first born her Only son but the voiceless Tongue hath returned no she hath gazed with unutterable fondness upon Bis face but his dim glazed Eye hath not moved in the socket. She has pressed her burning kisses on his lips but their rigid coldness hath sent Back a chill to her heart. She has Laid her bands against Bis heart she has pressed her bared bosom upon his Manly Chest but there is neither throbbing nor warmth. The life sigh of her own pulsation is answered. She screams aloud in the Quot bitterness of her certain desolation hut there is no reply no notice of Sim Pathy returned the Echo of her cry mingles with the shouts of the victors. She sinks Down to bitt<2r conscious the late King of a gland was born at St. Jameson the 12ib of August 1792 and lived there fore to be far advanced in the 68fh year of his Oge. That he existed so Long might con Sider Itig the habits of his earlier life be looked upon As an proof of the original vigor of his Constitution. George in when Prince of Wales was for the greater part of his he an ostensible rallying Point of parliamentary opposition to his father s government. At the Era of the French revolution however when the stability of the throne to which he was heir was menaced with the destruction in which the other Royal establishments of Europe were. Involved he bade Farewell to the opposition in a speech against revolutionary politics and was thenceforth designated by or. Fox s friends As one unworthy of political Trust or attachment. The Prince of Wales appears not to have borne any Active or conspicuous part in politics Between the Day on which he ceased to countenance the Foite opposition and the period at which on the mental demise of George iii he assumed the government of the British acc Janis As Prince Regent. The reign of George in. Has been distinguished by some political measures that Mark it As one of the most interesting eras in English history. Of tilt be the repeal of the test act with its provisions prohibiting Dii Senters from the established Church from a participation in the honors and emoluments of office and the emancipation of the catholics Are alone sufficient to stamp the character of the time. The King is said to have spoken Well in pubic though very rarely. In private no Man was More engagingly conversational he told a Story with great Feli City and his Talent for mimicry which he sometimes indulged in for the a amusement of his intimate companions was very great. The looseness of his Early habits Are too notorious to need hinting at and the following statement from the London times my a give some idea of the prodigality of his expenses when Prince of Wales. In july 1783, 50,000/per annul was settled on the Prince then about completing his Sut year. In july 1786, Only three years afterwards his debts amounted to something More than 170,000/. And were shortly afterwards discharged at the Public expense. In 169s, after eight years More a fresh accumulation of debt was disclosed to the extent then admitted of 630,000/. And was provided for by an addition to the Prince s income of 88, 000/. Per annul. Notwithstanding this in 1801 a farther addition of 8, 000/. A year was bestowed upon his Royal highness and again in 1803, the debts formerly rated at 630,000/. Having been found to exceed 800,000/ the National Bounty was once More drawn upon and the Royal spendthrift was gratified by a fourth pension of 60,000/. Per annul terminable on the expiration of three years. The son of the notorious egalite guillotined in the revolution. Previous to his father s death be was an Aid of Gen. Dumaurier and fought under the tri coloured Flag which is what he alludes to in his proclamation at be Nappe. He was afterwards proct id fled to this country and taught school in new Jersey. We Are sorry to add that he evinced the basest ingratitude to some of his american in Irons after he was restored to affluence on the return of the burbot is.
