Tub friends of ihc' Restoration were
beginning to recover from the alarm of
the hundred days, .niid a numerous so
ciety, composed of discontented Impe
rialists was assembled at the Hotel of
the Due dell . The conversation
turned on the eclipsed glories of the
Tuilleries, and the difficulty of effecting
a junction between the old and new no
bility. On a sudden the folding doors
were thrown open, and an attendant,
in a loud voice, announced a messen
ger from the King. At these words
every one arose, for they considered
that a message brought by an officer of
the household must bean advance to
ward reconciliation. The gentleman
approached the master of the house,
and bowing, placed a billet sealed with
the royal arms', in Ins band. The Duke
brojvc the seal, and read, thp contents to
his gVics'ts." ' There were hut two lines :
"The King will receive the Due do
11- to-morrow after mass.
Signed Louis XVIII."
After the departure of the messenger,
various conjectures were formed re
specting this first overture from the
rourt, and it was late before tho party
generated, having first agreed to meet
on the following evening, to learn the
result of the important interview. The
l)u!ie. on risin-i next morning, took up
the Odes of Horace, and read over some
of the most remarkable passages the

order to arrive at the door of the sane

and the Kina waved his hand to Messrs,

them, and the greaJ, subject of the em

you, must be answered with sincerity.
The Duke bowed.
It is the misfortune of princes to he
surrounded by traitors; not only in
prosperity, but in adversity. I am in
doubt on a point which you alone can
relieve, and again I appeal to your sin
cerity. I shall obey your Majesty !
Well, then, it is my pleasure that you
do not quit my presence until you have
told me the name of the wretch who
betrayed his unfortunate master at

I have spent the niglit, Sire, in re

tried my devotion by requiring a possi

Irrevocably, Sire.
Perhaps we may have the means of
rendering you more accommodating.
Do you know this writing ? continued
the monarch, taking from his bureau a
packet of letters.
That writing is mine !
And this ?
It is also mine ; vour Majesty greatly

Know then that the spy of Bonaparte,

no other than Louis XVIII, King of

me to disguise my writing. The sums

my poor emigrants, who were suffering
from privations of all kinds; and thus
vou contributed 'to a good work un

This w retched man, the murderer of
Brown's family, suffered the awful pen
alty of the law, on the Gth inst. He was
executed in tho Jail Yard, a few min
utes before three o'clock, P. M. Al
though the execution could not be fully
witnessed, by those curious to sec its no
velty, and the unparallclled enormity of
the crime which caused it, it attracted
a very large crowd, which swarmed
around the jail, until the wretched be

with his own. The scene w ithout im

Down lo the hour of his execution.
nay t the very moment the drop fell,

innocence. All hopes of his making

removed by his sullen and dogged
conduct. He was taken upon the scaf
