FoNxTAINBLEAU, April 21. DEPARTURE OF BONAPARTE: Bonaparte left the town yesterday, at 11 in the afternoon followed by fourteen carri. ages. His escort employed 60 post horses, The four commissioners who accompanicd him of the allied powers, were M. Souwa- row, the Prussian general, and another gen- eral supposcd to be an Austaian one Four officers of his Household, among whom was his baker, formed part of his suit. Few of the military departed with him. : and even 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 : «I bid you farewell. During the twenty years we have acted together, I have I have always All the powers of Europe have armed against me ; a part of my generals haye betrayed their duty ; France herself has betrayed it. With your assistance and that of the brave men who remained faithful to me, 1 have for three years preserved I'rance from civil war. Be faithful to the new king whom France has chosen, be obedient to your commanders and do not abandon your dear country, which too long has suffered. Pity not my fate ; I shall be happy when I know you are solikewise. = I might have died ; nothing would have been more easy for me ; but I still wish to pursue the path of glory. What we have done I will write .I cannot embrace you allbut I wiil em_ brace your general—Come General. Let the Eagle be brought to me that I may embrace it also. said) Ah, dear Eagle, may the kisses which I have bestowed on you resound to poster- ity ! Adieu, my children, adieu, my brave 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- low Bonaparte, though he had on the prece. ding day received from him present of 50° 000 franks. Bonaparte demanded 200 pieces of Cannon to fortify ius isle, and an Enslish frigate to protect him from the danger of the corsairs. This was refused him. He had demanded one hundred and sixty waggons to carry them. BONAPARTE. Frejus, April 28.—It appears that Bo- naparte has been greatly alarmed at the dif- ferent scenes which the indignation of the inhabitants of the South has caused him to experience in many places. ! On quitting Orgon, where he considered himself as lost, he took the resolution of changing his carviage, his name and dress, Se (On embracing it he ° in order to escape the danger which became every moment more menacing 5 he hastily geintd aur port, and has arrived heve 1n the. dress of an Austrian officer, enveloped in a Russian pelisse, dnd on his head a Prussian cap, ornamented witha large white cock- ade. Intlus strange accoutrement it was impossible to discover him.” Besides this he had a Jong white beard, his eyes sunk, and a disturbed air ; he was himself anxi- ous to depart ; he was himscit anxious to depart ; he'wished to make but one leap from the carriage to the frigate which was to transport them to the isle of Elba. He finally embarked at St. Rapheau j but itis feared that the inhabitants of the Island of It is said considerable fermentation prevails in the Island upon the subject. The inbabi- tants still recollect that they were the firsy Elba are not very eager to receive him. islanders on the coast of Italy invaded by Bonaparte, and are unconscious of having given a reason of the unjust aggression. i — 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.’ mtn pp Paris, May 9. Prince Eugine Beauharnois arrived to day in Paris. He ‘visited the king at three o’clock in the afternoon. London, May 14. Despatches were on Sunday received an- nouncing the arrival of Bonaparte at the and of Elba. He embarked on board ¢ Undaunted frigate to be conveyed to t place. Lieut. Col. campbell, who accompanied Bonaparte from Paris, is promoted to the ¥ 0. XK1 brevet rank of colonel in the army Uni th® contipent and in the island of Elba only. Fron: this cx, ~ . would appear, that coh Campbell and the other allied officers placa@in supcriutendance over Napoleon are to continue with him in Elba for some time. The princess Borghese, who had an in4 interview with her brother Napoleon, and refused to accompany him, has been forced te quit Nice. It supposed she will retire to to Rome Joseph, Louis and Jerome Bonaparts, are all in Switzerland. The mother of Bonaparte is to reside at at Romeon a pension of 20,000 of a year ; Joseph, Louis and Jerdine, have each the same sum. Bonaparte himself a- bout 80,000/ a year. It is said there are at present in the neigh- borhood of Paris, A pWArds oi 20,000 French officers, destitute of employment. London, April 25. Connected with tie question of pe. c. with America, we may notice that a memorial has been presented to Lord Liverpooly which was favorably received, the object of whichis to prevent the Americans from conducting the fishing trade as heretofore on the coast of Newfoundland and else- where, It is said to be the intention of go- vernment to pr ore this branch ot our com- merce from ali iniuson by the citizens of the United Siuren der any arrangement that may be made with that power.

Lord Gambier and Mr. Hamilton have it is said, been apponied eommissioners to mect the American commissioners, and that they are invested with full powers to negociate a treaty with the United states. It sbelieved however, that they have in structions with regard to the line of boun- dary between the United States and Cana- da, which may make it necessary for the American commissioners to refer to their government for fresh instructions. At the beginning of the last month, the messenger bearing despatches to the Aroc- rican minister, Mr. John Q. Adams, arri- ved at Petersburg, and that gentieman was preparing to proceed to Gottenburg to un- derwake his new functions as plenipotentia- ry for the restoration of peace with Great Britain. The detachments proceeding to North America have been ordered an extra sup- ply of accoutrements, for which the colonels are to receive an indemnification. The people of Itally have desired to be constituted an independent monarchy, and to have a hing given to them.

The attempt of the partis 1: of Lu- gene deauharnois to have him proclaimed king, has completely failed ; and he has been forced to fly with a fe w of his staunch dollowers. A provisional government has been formed, and the crown it is clear, will be worn by a prince of the illustrious house of Austria. % "The details of the surrender of Genoa to the troops under the command of lord W.
