all."- .. • I
Baudia —" The seCtion of Lepelletier cannot be
< ignorant of the fact, Ihat a number of those, whom e
it now desounces, are already on trial, there is a >
fhatpeful want of candour in this Petition.''—(A j
violent agitation appeared in one parrt of the As

asked leave to speak, Tallien and Legendre claim

Bourdon (of Oife) —"No body can without be
lying his oonfcience, vote otherwise than for the I
order of theday accompanied by the declaration pro- '•
posed by Lanjuinais."— (Murmurs in the Meun- I

Baudin then read an Arrete issued fix weeks be
fore, which perfectly agreed with the opinion of
" Well," exclaimed some members, we only
defend the execution of that Arrete."
Thibaudea'u —" 1 move the order of the day,but
from' quite different motives , I acknowledge in no
Primary afttmbly the light of declaring itftlf per
manent, n«jr of treating objeCts foreign from the
purpose fur which it was convened. But to return
to the queflian 1 declare that the Government has
lately bees a little too forward in letting persons at
liberty. —The great eft villains are fecn running a
bout the streets and threatning the good citir.ens.
The mod horrid tyranny has oppressed France—
but what accomplice of those nsonllers h;s been pu
nifhsd the 9th Thernwdor ?—Have Heron,
and so many o'.hers, whole crimes are written every
where in fetters of blood, been punished ? Why
ihis fatiA—indnlgenco ? I detcll Lipyalum As much
as any body but no dangers with which they could
frighten me, would make me embrace the infamous
Terroritts whom we have subdued ; If I were des
tined to jfaH a victim to the enemies of the republic,
1 (hould prefer having my throat cut to becoming a
cutthroat, or to associate with the executioners of
Country, and become a partner in their crimes.
" I thought it necessary to make this declaration,
that whatever may happen my Fellow Citizens rosy
know, that 1 will have nothing to do with assassins;
Let us equally punifli all excefles—Let us prnteCt
110 guilty person, and confidence will revive: and
then the Republic will tri'.rtiph, alike victorious c
■vtrthe horrois of terrorism and the cor.fpiraciesuf
royalifm.—l move, that aft er leaving a free course
to justice and the Tribunals against all persons ac
cuicd of revolutionary crimes, you pass to the order
of the day, accompanied by a declaration, that no
Primary Aflembly has a right either to declateit
felf, or to interfere with any subjeCt
which does not relate to the Conilitution."
The fpetch of Thibaudeau was often interrupt
ed by load applauses from a large party of the mem
bers of the Convention/and from the frcall galleries.
The galiew'es peopled accqrding to cuilom
with Jacobins, observed during the whole fitting a
dead filerice.
Beurdon of Oife moved, that all citizens should
be authorized to prosecute perfoiss known to have
committed Revolutionary excefles, notwiihflanding
• their having been set at liberty by the Ceihmittee
of General Security— Negatived.
Jean De Brie voted for the order of the day, ac
companied by the declaration moved by Lanjuinas
and Thibaudeau. The Convention passed to the
•rder of the day.
" It is of great importance to us, that the Bel
gians and the people of Liege fncnld be free, and
also that they (hould be Frenchmen, in order to
f '' counteract the plots which the il! intentioned might
attempt, as they did at the beginning of the revo
lution, to detacb from France the Departments of
the North and of the Pas de Calais ; lafliy, it
is ncceffary that we increafc the feeurity of our
Affignats immense eftatei belonging to
the clergy and emigrants, which we shall find in
ihofe countries, as ioon as the union with France
fhall,have been pronourred ; and which amount to
at lea It two-thirds of the' value of oui" affignats.
These observations are also applicable to other
Countries which have been conquered by our tri
umphant armies.*
" There would be as much baseness as impru
dence in delivering them up to our enemies. A
thousand times have you loaded with applatjfes ihofe
whose declared, that the Rhine was the natural
barrier of the republic ; tinle are the principles of
your committee, and we may already declare our!
will with respect to the conquered "countries.— j
i here is nothiug contained in oitr treaties with the I
King of Prufiia and the Landgrav- of HefleCaffcl
contrary to our principles.
" The public intercity and the of de
priving tile emperor of all hopes oi making a peace j
i't the eispenfv of Be'.gia ; the wiili of extending
the Empire of Liberty ; nl! invite you to come
ar immediate dficihon upon this threat Queflion.
Merlin then read his proportions, which were
long, but of which 1 Ihe following were the j
principal Articles :
J. The decrees formerly passed for uniting to
France the department of Gemappe, AuUtian !
Flanders, Brabant, the country of Liege, &c. shall '
be enforced without delay. , I
2. Ail the other countriespoffeffed by the,
Hoiife of Auili ia at the commencement of the war, j
on this fidi of the Rhine, such as Limbuvgh, 1
Luxemburgh, See. ate all incorporated with
France, as well as thoie countries which are fpeei
fieJ in the treaty of peace concluded between
the French and Batavian Republics
3. The French republic also accedes to the wi!h
«s«cpre(Tedby tlie.inhabitant? for the Union of the
cities of the Yp. es, Namur, Tour nay, Glient, and
Mons, to France.
4. All the inhabitants of ibefe different, cgitn
tties, drall enjoy the privileges of French Citizens,
as. Ipecified i.r lite Conftitutiunal Code.
5,. Th« of the people shall divide te
these countries into departments and Cantons. "Ci
6. The countries which have been already unit
ed to France, (hall immediately ptocced to (heap- ra
pointment of their public functionaries. w
7. In these countries which are about to be writ- in
ed to France, the public functionaries 0)all be pro- e<
viiionally named by the Representatives of the 01
people. " at
8. The Legislative body shall fix the number of fii
Representatives to be eledted by these countries. b!
" The Quejlian ! the Qurjlion! exclaimed a vv
great number of members. ei
Lefage, of Eure and Loire—" I move that q
these propositions be printed, and the difcuflion g
adjourned for three days ; the decrees, the execu- e
tion of which is proposed, were the decrees of en- p
thuliafm ; tnofe which you are now called upon to J
pass, ought to be maturely Investigated; certai»ly
no body can think of restoring Belgia to her anei- p
ent tyrants ; but are there not other means of giv- j<
ing her liberty ? Must we unite her with France ?
Would not that be the means of retarding the
hour of peace ? This is what we ought to exa
mine calmly, and to weigh maturely. I therefore ti
move, that the diicufiion of the question be ad- d
journed for three days. t
Some members moved to adopt as a principle, si
the incorporation of the conquered countries with fl
the republic. li
Lanjuinais eppofed it. He declared tkat the
intereit of the republic and the dignity of the Na
tional Convention required, that they (hculd, on a
question of such delicacy, avoid all precipitate f
liberation. r
The Convention passed the motion of adjjura- t
menu t
Quhot, in tire nam? of the Committee of Get
neral Security, moved, that those citizens of Par ia 1
who had been arretted from a motive of feounty, 3
(hould be carried before the Jiil\ice of Peace

result of the certificates of the proceedings of the '
primary affeniblies : . : !
" Almolt the whole nation (f::id he) b' ;v 'e ac
fccpted the decrees of the sth and 1 jfh ■ FruftfJqr.
Notwithllanding rhe intrigues of i!:e fa'Ctiohs, the
French peoplj tonfident oi their llrength, place a
firm reliance un their representatives : t'.i conlli
tution is no longer yours } it belongs to ll.t people
of France.
■*S« The meeting of the primary affcrr.blies was
the epoch fixed on by the lor the ie-eitu
blifhmcnt of their tyranny, and for e>;citi:ig a ge
neral conflagration. But the Genius or Francs has
saved her from deflrudtioi). An immense majority
of the whole nation has accepted the conftimtiou,
with loud applause, and with tfanfpnrts of joy :
some few communes have indeed rejeftcd it ; but
not one has declared in favour of tyranny.
*' You were of opinion that those men who had
defended liberty against tytanny ; tljat tbofe who
had made the conilitution, were the most interefl
ed in maintaining it ; you therefore passed the de
crees of the sth and 13th FruCtidor; aad these
decrees have been accepted by a majority of the
French. <_
" Though several of tjie primary assemblies
have not declared their approbation of them in more
express terms, the perusal of their proceedings will
be fufficient to prove that they conbdcred them as
inseparable from the conilitution. Your commit
tees, however, have only included in their report,
such of the primary affcrr.blies as adapted them in
a manner both clear and precise. The moment
then is come when all hatred (houkLbe forgotten',
all diffentiofis 'laid aside. Let us deliver up crime
to thefword of justice, but let error be forgiven.
People of France, be a people of brothers. - :
" The certificates of the proceedings of 6,337
primary afferablies, include 558,226 on the cooftw
ttitutien alone, of whom 914,853 have accepted,
and 41,892 r<jefted it.
" The number of voters on the decrees of the
sth and 13th of FruCtidur, is 270,338 —of whom
167,758 have accepted the decrees, and 95,373
have rcjeCted them. The majority in favor of the
'! decrees, is 72,385." (Loud applause.)
1 He then proposed the two following decrees :
I i. The Convention declares, in the name of the ;
French people, that the Conltitu'ion is accepted,
and that it becomes fundanWntal Jaw of the
t e public.
2. The National Convention declares, in the (
name ofthe French people, that the decrees of the !
rill and 13th FruCtidor, are laws of the republic,
1 and that the electoral sfl'emblies (hall be bou'.-.d to
co.nfoimto them.
, Both these decrees were unatrimoufly adopted in
j the miaft of the most enthtifiaftic acclamations of
"joy. But when they were declared by the Preli
! dent to have passed, the most majeflic trar quility
! prevail'.d in the aflembly; y'h'l e the representatives
'of the people, and the citizens in the galleries,
( pulled off their hats in a refpeftful manner, to hear
I the will of the sovereign people proclaimed. The
i roof was then made to refonnd with exclamations
of " Vive la Republiqite ! Vive 1j Cunvention 1
Vive la Conilitution 1"
The decrees were ordered to be sent to the dif
ferent departnrients and to the armies.
Letourueur (of La Manche) in the name of the
Committee of Public Welfare, moved ; that the
committee be authorized to put in a Hate of reqtn
filion for the public, such citizens compris

DaunoH, in tlie name of the committee of the ,

ought To prepare, in our arsenals and dock yards,

er or later, fall before the nation which has con- lie
quered the reft of Europe." He declared that the
government was determined to ftra'n every nerve,in Wl
order to restore to the navy all the llrcngth and
power which is wanted. He read fever al plans of
J'ecrees refpe&ing various improvements that were
oe adopted, The Convention ordered the re

TQULON, Sept. 13.
Yesterday the Englilh fquadran had the audacity
to '_-ome within tlie rcaeh of our batteries. Sixty
discharges from the cannon of Sablettes obliged
them to {facer off. The £ nglifh fleet consists of 23 a c

Mr. Hopkins,
IT is really dilireding to all true Americans to
i submit to the virulent abuje which is daily levelled
, against the President of the United States. How.
, ever contemptible be the authors, and however
( Icuriilous is the Printer, and ho.wevjr certain it is
tbat the character abused shines with incteafing
lv it re upon examination, and is more ar.d
more dear to the great body of h>s fel!ow,citijens;
s yet nations and individuals, Grangers to us and thefs?
fa£ts, will begin to suspect his virtue, or our profcfT
s ed attachment. The cause of liberty too will fuffer,
1 in hearing that, a Washington has aberrated from
s that heart cheeringgoddefs; & Mankind will lelign
all hopes of the poilibility of finding a genuine patri
f ot. TJie happiness of the American people must
he at an end, it the government cannot progress
without interruption, when the Man of the Peoplt
directs the helm ; for'who can be so sanguine as to
» hope for it, when any other Character fills the pre
sidential thair ?
f Short-lived, then, is our government, blasted our
t happiness ; for dii'iinion among the states will fue
c ceed to union—-different nations formed, different
, interests prevail, and the United .States become tri
, butary to France and Great-Britaiu ; obeying their
£ policy v cultivating their friendfhips and their ha
e treds, and arraying themselves in the field of batile
0 under their councils and theii leaders. What a ter
e rible change from our present happiness! Why
then do not all good men unite in time and arrest
5 the courie of the vicious and nifguided ? The a-
I] bnfeagainil government is poured forth from acer
. tain press with every mark of indecorum and con
tempt of truth : whether this may be attributed to
a venal connexion, as is fuggelfed, or to the proper
difappoiflt'rrtetVf of fosre of his relatives in their ap
plications fur high offices, is very immaterial; the
efle£t on the national tttr.per and charatter is the
fame, and his licentioufntls ought to be checked in
