" Yesterday morning all the troops which were
here f set off for Alzey. Trains of artillery, with
their baggages, are continually paffwg, who take
the Limbourg route. The Imperial cayalry, who j

" The movements on the fide of the Upper a

to pass th Rhine without interruption, and to go
towards Hoppcnheim and Lautern : a bridge is a

given cause for a general surprise, in beholding this
proclamation published amid the found of drums Ext
and.trumpets, which was occasioned by rage, to I
behold the public fatijfaftion that appeared by find- t'
ing out the discovery of the conspiracy.
The alarm has not spread abroad, the youth
from the requifuion have not returned, the assertion I
of the commune is falfe and calumnious ; the cos oft
fee-houles ate open for the Multitude to read the lie*
journals upon the arrival of the couriers; and the the
joy which appeared expecting the messages from it h
the Directory, would drive the municipal terrorists ho*

An hour before the - courier arrived, whi«h an
nounced a discovery of the conspiracy, the alarm
befl was founded here, the alarmed citizens halten Wa
in crowds to the municipality ; the mayor tells them
he is utterly ignorant from what authority the or
der was ifTued ; the jail keeper allures them, he
has no knowledge of it. The courier at length j".
arrives, our exclujifs furrouud the poft-office, and ,
pjffefs th'mfelves of the news; but it would be
difficult to pi&ure to you their dcTpair, when they a
discovered that the conspiracy had been a trick.

they give the minutes of Louvet, whom they call
the iTefender of oppressed patriots.
