Mr. Fekno,
The following article appeared in the Aurora
Such an open avownl of the wijiei of those da
rr.eflic traitors whether native or foreign, whose ma
chinations threaten to involve out country in war
and bluod, has scarcely before appeared. On the
principles heie advanced, it is the duty of our ci

In a paragraph in the Aurota of WednefSay,
which contains as many falsehoods as could well be
conpreflcd within its limits, it is said, that " the
JirJl French art'ijls arc employed in the trahfportation
of the statues and pi&ures front Italy and this
is almoß the only palliative offeted to foften the
criminality of the plunder. How abundant soever
auiils may have been in France, the revolution has
operated as an ostracism ta them, which few have
escaped. But if they have the firft artifls, that is
te fay, packers, waggon-drivers, See. to emplay
for this puvpofe, their conduct, with regard to-the
whole tranfaihon, will remain the fame i. and (in
the opinion of the be& men in France) wherever
the trophies arc exhibited, they will be regarded
as monuments of disgrace arid infamy—They will
pr*ve a beacan to warn the nations of the earth
from any connexion or intercourse with the French ;
till at length, tired and finking under the intolera
ble load of infamy, they will, as' the only means
left to retrieve the honor of the Ftench-name,
tranfpovt back again, their ill gotten plunder ; and
instead «f korfcrwr mules, they will cause the pic
