Odtober 31, LAMBKIN.
From the Netu-Turk Atiiterva.
" Among the remarkable circumftancet that dis
tinguish the revolution in France, are the gteat
- changes in opinion which have taken place in rapid
fucceflion. The French have always had the cha
rafter of a volatile people; more ciftinguiftied for
10 biill ant imagination, than for foiy judgment. The
revolution hat afforded ample confirmation of tfer
_ jliftnefs of this character.
In the eaieer of theii firft viftoriet, and in the
t warmth of their enihufiafm for liberty, they em
v _ braced a projett of fraternizing with all republics,
id «nd waging an eternal War, with all king:, which
_ they held to be fynpnymous with tyrants. They
declared in convwition, they would never make
'•-« peilce with a Monarch.
£ Their measures corresponded with these deda
rations. Tliey seemed to overlook the inconhften
- cy of their proceedings with their own principles.
The very ground on which the"y ..ppofed thf com
biration powers against their nation, and u „
which all impartial nations will juftify rhem. was
I e'f-Jel«nt» aad the right of klf-govi fwtt. 1.,
*»;iarch'e«l «n*MU,
ihey efpouted the f«r«ie principle at the combined
power* j they attacked the right of felf
government in other nation*. TKisconduft of the
French even jultified the combined power*; for
what kind of govetnnunt i« best for a particular
. nation, is,to be determined solely by that nation ;
and on lliitt principle, the French had no more
right to attempt to give England and Spain a
Republican form of government, than England
and Spain h»d to attempt :o continue the monar
chy of France.
But the opinion* of the French are wonderfully
. ctmng-d, as well as thofc of the Combined powct*.
The king* jvho united againll France are convinced
that forte will never compel the French to change
their opinions ; and their right to attempt thia
piojeit, was never contended lor with even a (bow
of reason. The French en their part have laid
aside their a ufaJes againfl tyrants, and formed a
tieaty with two of the nod absolute monarch* in
Euiope. Inttead of French men fraternizing with
none but republicans, we fee them in a league of
1 friendfhip with Sptiin and Prussia, and even with the
Ottoman Porte, the moil arbitrary prince on earth.
! Nay, we fee them accept the o filiation of the
Sp anifli monarch in favor of the Italian States, one I
of which is the Pope. Strange changes these !
But the French, while they disavow their ridi
, cu!ous idea* of dethroning all tyrants, will not lay
aside the principle of interfering in the domeftie
r concern* of other nation*. They cannot divest
themlVlvc* of their habits of intrigue. Under the
monarchy, the French education wa* directed to
this point—to teach the art of difTembling their
own thoughts and of difcov>ering thofc of other*.
This art, inltead of being banished by the revolu
tion, has received new strength and cultivation. It
. nevei wa* pra&ifed so much and to so god effect.
Indeed the intriguing disposition of the French, is
become infinitely more dangerou* than formerly;
a* it is furnifbed with a molt imposing influence and
mod tffe&ual wea'pon, in disguising its infidion*
view* under a ma(k of liberty md twtrictifm —a dis
guise wfaich Richelieu and Mazarine could not «fe
under kings.
Under this specious garti, they have effected a
revolution in the free and peaceful city of Geneva,
which in faA ruined thotifamls of its befl citiiem,
and has placed that feat of fcieflce and liberty un
der the control of French politic*. It is a mere
fati llite of France. Holland is in a worse fitaation.
That country has got rid of fwme feudal evils, but
in return (he is a mere colony 01 France : garrison
ed by French troops—drained of her money and
her arm* and military apparatus —her commerce
(lagnant—and faiftion and civil war in her bosom.
So totally paralisted aie all the a&ive powers of the
Dutch, that it is believed by many, the sea will re
gai* poffefiion of great part of her ancient domini
on in thalt country.
In the United State*, French intrigue has been
aiflive ; in success has been great; but its view*
have bees muth thwarted, and they are not yet
brought to a final result. A deep laid plan of
fubjeiling this country to the influence of France
was formed or tbree years age ; and some re
cent will warrant a belief that a con
fpiraoy againlt the conllitution of our country ha*
mr.(t aftontfl* and alarm eveiy feo
ntft man in America. The united ancf adtive ex
ertions of :he demneratic clubs to defeat the effeift
of the late Tieaty—to bring an «di'«m on the Pre
sident-—and to augment opposition to bi* mcafure*
—the falfehood* circulated with industry iefpe£t
tng the merits of the Tieaty and the pretended cor
ruption of in advocates—the riotous proceedings
in many parts of the union, at the instigation of
the club*—all announce the views, the determina
tion, and the malignity of the cobfpirati.-r*.
It is a serious fad, that things are ripening to a
ciifis, in the United States ; and my Countrymen,
it is yet a qne'tion, whether we are to be governed
by our own constitution and the virtuous Wa/h
---ington ; ot by Democratic Clubs.
