The report of peace is again very prevalent in
London, and the return of Mr. Netmai/ from Pa
ri* is anxiously expected. This gentleman has been
associated with M, Charretier, as agent for French
prifonens in this country, and approved of as filch
by our Ministry. He was formerly under M. Bar
thelami," in the service of .the French Ambaflador
in London ; and was sent off on Monday fe'night
express to Paris, supposed to be charged with a
mission of importance. An express was sent off to
Dover 12 hows before Mr, Nctman left London,
with a letter from the,. Duke of Portland to the
Mayor, to let this gentleman meet with no delay,
and that a packet mighf be in readiness to receive
him. He failed from Dover to Calais under a flag
oftrueeand was only two hours and a haif on his
paflage. Mr. Charretier accompanied him to Do
ver, but not to France.
Scarce any thing of the events which have occur
red in the progress of the French revolution arc more
extraordinary than those of the present day. Al
most in the fame fitting of their k«giflative bodies,
theyconfult on the firft movements towards peace,
made by Mr. Wiekham to Mr. Barthelemi, they
receive news of victories decisive of the fate of Italy
and the submissive proposals for peace from Sardi
nia and Naples, aod in the fame breath they an
nounce to the. people that a conspiracy has been just
discovered in the perpetration, headed by men of
the firft abilities, ibme of them of the legislative bo
dy, threatening the mafiacrc of all the conftitutcd
authorities, and the re-establishment of the bloody
fyttem of 1793.
The conspirators accuse the present powers of
intending to restore the monarchy they retort the
charge on the conspirators and urge the nation to
oppose the reftoratiori of the conltituticro of 1793
to the utmost, as the o<ily means of ettablifhing the
Republic and the liberty of France.

Of the war, Dumas fpeke with profefiional know

the merit due to the political dexterity of thnfe who

" Soldiers,
" You have iu a forfnight gained Six victories,
taken 21 stand of colours, 71 pieees of cannon, se
veral tlrong phces, conquered the richest part of
Piedmont ; you have made' 15000 prisoners, and
killed or jvounded more than 10,000 men.
" You had hitherto fought only for fterite
Vocks, rendeied illustrious by your courage, buc
useless to the country j you have equalled by your
services the victorious army of Holland and the
Rhine. Deprived of dvery thing, you, have suppli
ed everything, you have won battles without can
non, made forced marches without shoes, watched
without brandy, and often without bread The Re
publican phalanxes, the foldieis of Liberty were
alone capable of fuffering haye fuffered.
" Thanks be to you, Soldiers;the grateful coun
try will, in part be indebted to you-for her pwpfpe
rity ; and if when viCtors at Toulon, you predicted
the immortal campaign of 1794, your nrefetit vie
tories will be the presages of more brilliant victo
ries, The two armies which attacked you wi h
audacity fly difhrartened before you. Men wLo
' failed at your roifsry and rejoicoLlii thought at tie
idea oFthe triumphs of your enemies, are con
founded and appalled—But it mufl nqt, Soldiers,
be concealed from you, that you have nothing,
since fometliing remains yet to be awe. Neither
Turin nor Milan are in your power. The athesof
the conquerors of the Tarquins are dill disgraced,
by the«fiafliiv» of. Bafleville. At the commence
ment of the campaign you werf dellitute of everyt
thing, now you are amply provided ; the magazines
taken from your enemies are numerous, the artille-
ry for the field and for besieging is arrived.
" 'Soldiers, the country has a right to expedl
great things from' you { juftify her expeflajions.
The greatest obstacles are undoubtedly overcome, .
but yon have still battles to fight, cities to take,
jivers to pafs.—ls there one among you whose
courage it dimiuifhed i Is there one who would
prefer returning to the summits of the Alps ajid
the Apennines ? No, there is not one amongst the
conquerors of Montenotte, Millelimo, Dego, Mon
davi. All burn with the desire ef extending the
glory of the French. All wish to humble tile
proud kings who dare to meditate putting us again
in chains j all wish to dictate a peace that shall be
and that shall indemnify the country for
the imtnenfe facrifices which she has made ; all of
you burn with a desire to fay on your return to
your home, 1 belonged to the victorious army of

there is one condition which' you must swear to
fulfil, it is to respeCt the people whom you deliver,
to repress the horrid pillage, which some wretches
mitigated by our enemies, praetifed ; tinlefS yoti
do this you will be no longer the friends bat the
