plan of the constiution proposed by the sen-

which they have been drawn up ; cannot in
their present form, become fundamental
laws of the state.

DEPARTURE OF BONAPARTE:

The four commissioners who accompanicd
him of the allied powers, were M. Souwa-

officers of his Household, among whom was
his baker, formed part of his suit. Few of

those who did, will it is said, leave him
when he embarks.
The following are nearly the words which
he addressed, on setting off, tc the officer
and subalterns of the old guard, who were
still with him :

twenty years we have acted together, I have

I have bestowed on you resound to poster-

companions | Once more encompass me.”
Then the staff always accompanied by
the four commissioners of the Allied pow-
ers, formed around him.
Bonaparte now got into the carriage. A¢
that moment he could not hide his confusi-
on, and dropped some tears. In going he
called for Constant, his first valet de cham-
bre ; but the latter concealed himself, pro.
bably in order that he might not have to fol-

Paris, May 7.
A private letter from Avignon, dated 30th
ult. contains a fact which deserves to be ad-
ded to the particulars already published
respecting Bonaparte’s journey. Alarmed
at the danger in which he was incessantly
involved, he assumed the disguise we men-
tioned yesterday—but it was necessary to
take further precautions. He would not
remain in the carriage, and yet he could not
be supposed to be absent from the party —
He therefore conceived the idea of disguis,
ing one of his attendants, named Vernet,
who consented to take his place in the carri-
age, where he quietly heard all the impre-
cations intended for his master, poured forth
against himself, and fortunately “escaped
with insults and curses.
A person trom the south who saw Bona-
parte’s escort changing horses, relates that
it was a truly frightiul spectacle. The pop-
ulace crowded round his « arsiage, and giv-
ing way to teclings of hatred and revenge
alone abused him in the grossest terms, and
would haveseized bis person: The armed
force itself was not able to keep back the
multitude. At length one of the foreign
generals who accompanied him, harrangu-
ed them and said, « It was much better to
Jet the tyrant live, because a single death
would deliver him at once, whereas he must
suffer a thousand from the recollection of
crimes,” &c. &c. Meanwhile the horses
were put to, and the carriage started. Bo,
naparte finding himself extricated from this
new danger, turned to the general and
said to him, General I thank you; I heard
what you said ; you spoke like an angel.’
Paris, May 9.
Prince Eugine Beauharnois arrived to
day in Paris. He ‘visited the king at three
o’clock in the afternoon.

Connected with tie question of pe. c. with
