his hearers, and asksitteir consideration. He asks
them as men standing , ander. ttte shadow of Wash

impudence ! Are his requests unreasonable, that
they should not be hearill tie brings to their elu

"I beard day before yesterday from Lord Cr.litt

Government Messenger had arrived from Paris
saying that there had been 8,000 kilted instead of
800 as armed, and that the majority were innocent
persona, who had taken no part in the. revolution.
Another gentleman who has arrived from Paris, an
k:nglishman whotaa resided there, says that it shots
were fired out of one house in a block, cannon
were fired into the whole block and the soldiers
then rushed in and bayonetted indiscriminately all
•within. This gentleman says he escaped from one
of those block of houses, but that his clerk and wife
were killed by the bayonets of the soldiers. I:-also
learned through Lord Paget that the British Gov
ernment are a good deal alarmedat the supposition
that Louts Napoleon will unite' with Anstrta• and
Russia to put down England and Liberty in Europe,
and that the Govern nen; Dockyards are alive, with
