will be met with similar feelings by the government of this country.
Government has lately dispatched a vessel to the northern coast of New Holland, for the purpose of forming a new settlement. In a commercial point of view a better situation could scarcely be selected. The northern coast of New Holland is already most extensively resorted to by the native traders of the Eastern Archipelago, for several articles which are in the greatest request in China and the neighbouring countries. The immediate vicinity of mumerous islands, whose produce is both valuable and peculiar, will likewise be found an advantage of no trifling importance.
The last Russian papers detail numerous rewards dealt out by the Emperor to several officers engaged in a contest with the Nomade tribes, beyond the Cuban and Daghistan, a war hitherto studiously concealed by this artful and ambi. tious power, and now heard of for the first time. The expedition, however, and its results, must have been deemed of some consequence; for besides the insignia of several Orders, which have been given by the Autocrat, swords and sabres,
ounted in gold, have been bestowed on the Russian officers, with the inscription, “ To Valour.” The sword given to the Russian General was enriched with diamonds. These marks of honour (the account states), which are bestowed only on extraordinary occasions, were not conferred by the Chapters of the Russian Orders, but came directly from the Emperor. This ambitious Power is extending her dominions and her influence wherever her intrigues or her arms can reach. Daghistan is a mountainous tract of Asia, included in the government of Caucasus, lying west of the Caspian Sea, and northeast of Georgia, inhabited by Tartars, subject to Russia: Derbend is its capital. The influence of Russia now extends among the Tartar tribes, almost to the wall of China.
Hamburgh, March 26.-Letters from St. Petersburgh inform us, that the communications between this capital and the Governor of the provinces of the Caucasus (General Yermoloff), who is entrusted with a very important negociation in Persia, have of late become very frequent. It is rumoured that the object of this negociation would be not only to settle ancient discussions which have arisen between the two Powers, but also to bring about a perfect understanding between the policy
of Russia and of Persia. General Yermoloff keeps up an uninterrupted communication with the Court of Teheran, and Persian agents are often observed to arrive at his residence, whilst Russian agents repair to the Court of the Schah of Persia; but every thing is carried on with the greatest secrecy. It appears, from all these circumstances, that Russian policy has succeeded in regaining the influence which it had lost for a moment, and that English policy is losing ground. We must await the results which this change must necessarily produce, and which, according to all appearances, will be of very great importance.
Private accounts from the Crimea state, that the Scotch Missionary Carruthers, now settled there, proceeds with the greatest zeal and success in converting the Tartars to Christianity. A great number of them have been baptized by him. Colonies are to be established for these converts, and divine service will be performed in the Tartar language. A Turkish shiek and learned man is now receiving an education to qualify him for the office of Christian priest.
A Society has been formed in Edinburgh, to aid deserving persons in their endeavours to emigrate and settle in New
South Wales and Van Dieman's Land.
