Sept. i. ThePalais Royal has been a scene of
tumult the whole day, chiefly owing to the dis
contented members of the diltricft having chosen
the different Coffee-houSes as convenient places
to discuss points that belong to the Diftrkls only,
which nevertheless drew vast crowds about the
doors, and rendered the Arcades absolutely iin
About 7 o'clock, 300 French guards took poS-
Seflion of the garden, cleared tlieprlncipal Coffee
lioui'es, and fhuttheni up, cut off the communica
tion between the Arcades and the garden, by lock
ing all the gates under the arches, but at the prin
cipal entrance, then divided into companies, and
patrolled the reft of the evening, difperSmg the
people, by marching through every knot of men,

About 11 o'clock, an extract from a verbal pro

Commons of Paris, was distributed among the
In this extratfi the Assembly declares its indig
nation at the proceedings of Sunday, Mohday,
andTuefday, in the Palais Royal, laments that
the abode of a Prince, whom they love and cher
i{h, Ihould be profaned by the encouragement of
the molt attrocious calumny, and of such bloody
purposes, as revenge or ignorance may wish to
fee executed. It reminds the people of their in
fluence on the great provincial towns, warns
them against the ill consequences that such dis
orderly meetings mull neceflarily bring on ; and
authorizes the Marquis de la Fayette, to use the
power entrusted to him by the good citizens of
Paris, for quelling all disturbances in the streets,
and to take into custody those that appear to be
molt a<Ttive in misleading the people, that they
may be immediately tried and punished, accord
ing to the nature of their offence.

The method of silencing the leaders is worthy
of relation, it being as ingenious and original, as
exempt from violence, M. de la Fayette was de
termined not to leave them even the popular
merit of persecution.
A meflage was Sent to the mad Marquis de St.
Huruge, requeuing his preSence at the Hotel de
Ville ; and 011 his appearing, M. de la Fayette
addrefled him with his uSual urbanity, acquaint
ing him, that rumors were Spread abroad injur
ious to his character as a man oSrank, and an offi
cer (he has the croSs of St. Louis) as well as of
the good citizen, which he was persuaded were
destitute of foundation. On his replying that
they certainly were unjust, " Of that we are all
convinced (answered the Marquis) and it is Sor
that very reaSon that we are desirous of availing
ourSelves oSyour military experience and talents,
and of giving you an opportunity, which you
certainly will readily embrace, of Silencing the
voice of calumny, by offering you the command
of a patrole of citizens in this quarter of the Palais

Small, was beneath his acceptance.
BRUSSELS, Sept. 8.
Iwo days since, the /hops, ware-houSes, and
houSes oS all the printers and booksellers in this
province, were Searched for Seditious pamphlets,
hand-bills, &c. in conSequence oS which, two
booksellers in this city, and one printer at Ant
werp, were imprisoned.
The garriSons are withdrawn from Ghent, Bru

Brabant. Those of Bruflels, Malines, Louvain,
and AntVverp, are changed to prevent the forma
tion of those habits of familiar intercourse which
are acquired with the inhabitants, by long refi-
dence. Infhort, the m ultiplied precautions us the

those petty exertions that irritate and inflame,

Prince Repnin is marching haltily forward to

is intended to attempt the retaking of Oczakow,

themselves in I'uch a manner off Oczokow, that

LONDON, September 8.
The Marquis de St. Huruge, who isimprifon
ed at Paris, for having railed a tumult at the Caife
de toy, was formerly confined 011 account of in
(anity. He has occasioned much trouble at the po
pular meetings by his enthusiastic ardour. Bre
teuil was his enemy, and during his administra
tion, he fuffered much.
The proposed Senate of France is not to becom
pofed entirely of Nobility, in which particular it
differs from our House of Lords; it is, besides,
elective, and not hereditary ; and the age of 35
is, perhaps, a wife precution, to guard againlt
the precipitancy of youth. No perion was per
mitted to take a (eat in the Roman Senate until
he had completed his 40th year.
At Paris every thing seems quiet. The Mar
quis de St. Huruges, who was the promoter of the
late tumults, is arretted and and in prison. The
frequenters of the Palais Royal are frighented at
it, and we hear no more of those who have, for
some time past, excited such alarms.
The Countess of Artois left Versailles yester
day about nine, in order to meet the
Count ai Turin, who will, it is supposed, arrive
thereto day or to-morrow.
The Queen has fliewn a degree of resolution bj
flaying in f ranee, which might have been expect
ed only from the daughter of Maria-Tlierefa.
The mob set a price upon her head ; and she was
every day not only called Brunehalt, but threat
ened with the fate of that wicked Queen.
But Maria-Antoinetta resolved, with a manly
resolution, to brave aftorm from which so manv
Princes of the Blood, and able Generals, had
thought it prudent to fly. This spirited resolu
tion is of service to her—she is at this moment
much less unpopular than at anytime during the
last three months ; and it is expected that (he will
soon be reltored to the popularity which she
formerly enjoyed.
The French funds have lately risen two per

proposed by M. Neckar, for raifingtlie new loan

that account, and theprogrefs making by the Na

A letter from a merchant in Leghorn on Monday
lalt, and dated the 11 th inft. mentions, that a Tus
can, frigate, mounting 36guns, had jult returned
into that port, after having had an engagement off
the lfland of Corsica with an Algerine corsair, car
rying 24 guns, besides carronades : the engage
ment lasted three hours ; the Algerine was full
of men, and fought desperately, but a shot from
the Tuscan frigate having taken the corsair be
tween wind and water, she funk and every per
son on board perished. The frigate had thirty men
killed, and several wounded : her ringing* was
much damaged, and she will take some time to
Sept 12. A rescript from thelmperialChamber
of Witzlaer has arrived here, ordering the Prince
Bishop to be immediately re-established in all the
prerogatives which he enjoyed before the revo
lution ; and also to replace the former magistrates.
This being read in public, caused very serious
alarm atfirft ; and it was aflerted, that if this or
der of the Sacred Imperial Chamber was not com
plied with, it would be the King of Prussia's du
ty to fend a body of troops to enforce it.
An Aflembly was immediately held at the Hotel
de Ville, where spirited and patriotic resolutions
were entered into; which were caarried to the
Hall of the Third Estate, and that of the Nobleile
in an inllant. '
Thcfe proportions and resolutions were readily
agreed to. 3

PARIS, September 15.
The order of the day being read, and the
question put, whether the National Aflembly
should consist of one or of two Chambers; B9VOW
appeared for two chambers, 849 for one; 122
Mentbers who would not vote. The idea of
a Senate, as proposed by Monsieur de Lally, is
therefore laid aside.
Monf. D'Eftaing having made the proper dis
position of the militia, as well for the security of
the Afletnbly, as for the tranquility of thetown,
received the thanks of the House, in a polite let
ter from the President.
The order of the day was scarce read, when a
letter was received from M. Neckar, containing
a report made in the Council on Thursday. The
reading of this report was immediately opposed,
and a long debate ensued on the propriety of the
King's interference in the business of the Allem
bly. The result was, that the report contained
in M. Neckar's letter should not be'read.
The affair of the Royal Sanction was now re
sumed, and the question proposed, whether the
King canrefufe hisconfent to the edicts of the
legidative body ? it was determed in the affirma
tive, by 730 votes againll x 43.
Another question then arose, in cafe the King
(hould refute his consent, would his refufalbe
fufpenlive or determinate ? The suspensive refu
fal was adopted by 673 against 325.
On this a new question arose, how long the
suspension should last ? It being now late in the
evening,this matter was referred to another day.
On the opening the Aflembly on Saturday, the
Cardinal de Rohan took his feat,and was received
with great applause.
The firft question of consequence was, the
referred question of the duration of the King s
suspension, when a member desired that it might
firft be determined how long each Parliament
Ihould last ; that is, whether their Parliaments
should be annual, biennial, triennial, See. Many
arguments were adduced in favor of each 0
these terms ; and, after debating the matter the
whole morning, it was determinned in favor 0
Triennial Parliaments.
