" 1 am not at all Turprifed that you, who are at
the distance of 1200 leAfrues fr*m France, (hould
be unable to form a judgment r»fpe£ting her real
condition ; when wc, who are t he spot, after
hearing twenty persona speak on tJ,e fi>bje&, can
only fay that we are acquainted with twenty con
tradictory opinions. But one thiiij ; s clear, and
tlrikes every body, which is, that th. Convention
is not pofleffed of the confidence of t' <e people.
Unable to extricate affaiis from their-jrefent em
barrafiments it leaves all to the spur of th. moment,
and goes, on committing blunder after blunder :
and while it believes that its own prefenation de
pends on the continuation of two of it's
number in the ensuing legislature, it att.mpts to
perfnade the people that such a measure will be ufe
ful; but they arc so incredulous as not to believe
> it.
'1 he Convention is now divided into two parties;
the ThermiJorians, led by Tallien, and the Giroii
.lines, at the head of whom are Lotivet, Doucet,
'.nd orhers. The firlt of these parties, which molt
<ireads the restoration of the royal government,
from a diffidence of its own fuffioiency, endeavors
W) ftrcngthen#tfelf with every man of energy and
«alcnts who pofiefTes the fame enmity to the ancient
The Girondines, on the contrary, are full of
•confidence in themselves, and believing that tciror
is a ufeful instrument in politics, notwithstanding
they fulfered so much themselves by the fame fyflem
under Robefpicrre, have no objection to fee it re
newed, provided they are allowed to direst toe np
There are only two men in the Convention who
polfefs the general elleem—Boifly d'Anglas, and
Latijuinais. These men are equally diftniguifiud
V fcy their firmnefs and courage, as by a dilintereftcd
«ttachnent to their country, and an invariable de
tire to rcftore her to the pcacefut enjoyment of ge
nuine liberty.
In order t» form an opinion of the general spirit the
of the departments, it is neceffiry to diftinguith
between the towns and the country. In the latter on
so dispirited aud indifferent are the people about kef
forms of government,' that the conftitutiou of the is a
mildell republic, or the despotism of Morocco,
would be equally submitted to. In the towns,on the
contrary, the dread of terrorism is carried to such
an extreme, that, upon an attempt to revive it, to I
the inhabitants would instantly dcflroy all who has
were known to be its advocates. And so sensible cei
are the Girondines of this, and so approhenfive of It
its effe&s, that it fufficiently accounts for their un- cei
common eagerness to have two thirds of the Con- or
vention re ele£led into the legislative assembly. me
The towns wi(h for such a share of liberty as will nci
ensure to every man th«t portion of happiness t6 wii
1 which he is fairly entitled : and of course it will be far
very difficult to persuade (hem to surrender one of T1
1 their most valuable rights, that of ele&ihg their fto
own representatives. Those delegates, therefore,
who attempt to forbid their confhtuents to exercise
this right, canriardly expect to succeed. vei
In the mean while, Louis the 18th is at Verona, it.
surrounded by the flower of the ancient court.— cei
He talks of nothing but the neceflily of an a& of vvl
obliovion and pardon for all that is past j of the ed
happy effe&s of an union of parties ; and of a m<
frank and generous reconciliation with allhiscoun- ac
trymen. And in return for all these magnanimous
concelfions, all his majeity requires is, that he (hall
be permitted to return surrounded with his noblefle,
without whom he thinks that the throne would be
void of due splendor ; with his parliaments, which
he calls the natural prote&ors of his people ; and
with the whole feudal economy, without wjuch the
people would never resume the flatiop, for, jvhich C<
Heaven intended them, nor he be enabled to re- fr<
eftablirti the two fuperipr orders in their antient g'
rank and importance.
Hitherto this reasoning of Louis the 18th has A
not made many proselytes in the towns. For al
though the inhabitants are quite willing that his
majesty should reign over fubjefts, confiding wholly
of nobility and clergy ; the third estate, that is,
the great mass of the people, fecm to think that l e
their happiness does not depend on tb« haughty ; n
and futile exercise of certain privileges engrofled f e
on parchment, or on any proud preteiWM>n» found
ed on a religion which prefcribesfelf-deaul and hu- tl
mility to its votaries. yi
As all the inhabitants of the towns have been t [
more or less concerned in the revolution, they don't t<
seem in the leaf! disposed to give an account of th ir
past conduct to Loyis the xßth and his courtiers, h
In this city particularly we have such apprehensi
ons of being condemned at least to a contribution
to rebuild the Baftile, that we seem inftindlivcly to a ,
be governed by the fame opinions concerning it, (
as prevailed at the time of its dellruftiiw. h
The country will always follow the example of n
lc the towns. In them relided the governor, the in- r ,
y tendant, and all the hierarchy of power before the f,
revolution ; and tince that period deparmental and e
m diftrift officers. From them the country has re
ceivcd its laws ; and such will be the dependance so a
'5 long as the towns continue to be the feats of power, t
lr inflru&ion, and primary offices, in the body po- f
r- l' r ' c - n
But the present is certainly the moH j
m momentous that has occurred for the last (ix years. r
lie We are drawing near either to such an ettablifh- e
U, ment as, beinjj adapted to the people, will once (■
— more render France an happy country, or to new t
in convulsions, that will (hake and rend her to pieces. a
>1, But if I may hazard an opinion on a fubjeft of (
n, such magnitude, it is—That the aggravation of
it. our past and present evils itfelf, will lead us to t
annihilate the cause." t

Thi* day's packet brings us Parisian news down am

has occurred. The Convention are occupied in re- wi
ceiving the returns from the primary aflcmbiies.— cal
It appeal that a considerable majority of tltofe re- wr
ceived, ate either silent on the decree of re-ele&ion,
or have concurred with the Convention : in the
mean time the aflcmbiies of Paris continue perma
nent, and are occupying thcmfelves in organizir g gh
with the cities in the departmentswhoadhere to the
fame opinion, as well as with some of the armies.—
The Convention on their part aretaking mcafurcs to JJ,
(lop these communications a 9 far as they can by ren- j g c
,dering travelling as difficult as possible. 1 SI.
The Parisian papers are mollly against the Con
vention, and are extremely free in their remarks on

:e during my refidcnce iu England ; only that I have
w done every thing in my power (both in my public
*■ and private character) that 1 conceived to be con
flftent with propriety.
I wrote your Excellency when at London ; whe-
Lo ther it ever came to hand I think precarious: In
that letter I made mention of our minister plenipo
_ tentiary from the United States at the English

a " afforded me more unhappinrfs, than to fee the

honours. From my other avccations of business,
in- beitig acquainted with'what is there called the mid
ia- dling, I mean mercantile orders of life, I found a
ce general spirit of animosity to pervade through the
fe- whole. The lapse of twenty years has not so far
to condensed the mantle of oblivion to the eye of Bri
ad tain, as not to view with jealousy, envy, and refer.t
on ment, her once loyal and obedient colonics, arising,
ain andperhaps to rivalempire, in the contemplation of
the freedom of her republican constitution ; which,
ay by holding up the mirror to monarchical & aritlo
i'as cratical pride, discovers the deformity of their form
for and figure ; reflecting at the fame time, that the
draugfit of freedom (lie is now attempting to make
:an her enemies disgorge, was firft tailed at the pools
nfe of America. ' A national haughtiness begot from
of the conscious fnperiority of their naval ltrength,-
travels through every rank and grade of her fub

ho her conduit, more than her policy—war would

of timely intcrpofitioli of Mr. Jay arrelled the arrow,
