We have received the 4 first numbers of a very handsomely printed
& well conducted work, under the title of La Abeja Argentina, or the
Bee of La Plata — which is published on the 15 of every month at 4
reals (50 cents) the number. This work is a happily digested miscellany,
in which the physical and political philosophy of the age is
displayed with as much intelligence, boldness and decision as in

This number also discusses the Revolution of Greece & the affairs
of the Colombian Republic, Guatamala, Mexico, Lima & Havannah,
Chili, Brazil, & Spain.

There have been established at Buenos Ayres, besides the public
library, the following associations of enlightened & scientific men: —
The Literary Society

Besides there is an Agricultural Society & a Society for promoting
the system of Question by analytical instruction.

The Argus of the 29th June contains the proclamation of
Barnardo O'Higgins for assembling a constitutional convention.
