been variously attributed to accident or malice, but the general opinion ascribes it to the carelessness of some workmen who are supposed to have left a lighted candle resting on an open brandy butt. However at first kindled, the fire soon spread aud proceeded with a violence, which for

many hours could not be repressed by the utmost exertion of the military and populace, working all the fire-engines in Paris; in the deficiency of water the engines were at first supplied with wine, a lake of which, nearly fifty feet square, and more than a foot deep, was prepared by starting vessels rolled out from the neighbouring warehouses. Before the fire was fully subdued, twenty-four thousand butts of wine and seventeen warehouses had been completely destroyed. On Wednesday, the space on which these buildings stood, forming a quadrangle of 366 feet by 200, exhibited one uniform heap of smoking ruins, on which twenty engines were still playing.

SPAIN. The ceremony of the convention of the General Cortes, and the King's solemn adjuration to the new constitution, took place at Madrid on the 9th July. numerous concourse of all classes assembled on the occasion, who testified their joy by loud acclamations. The President of the Cortes addressed a spirited and flowery oration to the King, to which his majesty replied in a sensible, manly, and temperate speech, in which he entered at length into a perspicuous detail of the circumstances and relations of the Spanish monarchy, internal and external; and concluded with assurances of a disposition to maintain the freedom of the country at home, and its independence abroad.

A proposition had been submitted to the Cortes for repealing the decree of March 1812, which excluded from the succession to the throne the Infantas Don Franciso Paulo, and Donna Maria Louisa, the Ex-Queen of Etruria; another for excluding from the succession Maria Louisa, Ex-Empress of France, and her descendants by Buonaparte; and one for restoring to their rights, as Spanish citizens, all the exiles from Spain in France. A petition from the widow of Gen. Lacy, to make the government furnish her with a copy of the official account of the proceedings against her martyred husband, was favourably received. The King has issued a decree of pardon with regard to the French, English, and Anglo-Americans, taken prisoners whilst fighting in the ranks of the South American Patriots. With regard to the English, the pardon is limited to those taken previous to the passing of the Foreign Enlistment Bill by the British Parliament.

In the mean time, we find the King the object of the most enthusiastic popularity. Whenever he appears among his peopic, his presence is greeted by the acclamations of thousands. His majesty is said to feel sensibly the happiness of the change that has been effected in his situation. The people of Spain mark in every way their enthusiasm for the constitution, and even every article of fashionable dress now bears

the distinctive appellation of La Constitucion.

ITALY. Revolution in Naples.-The example of Spain, in throwing off the yoke of a superannuated tyranny, has been faithfully and successfully copied by the people of Naples. The fate of these two governments, which presented each the extreme of internal despotism, united with the last degree of external weakness, affords a lesson which for ages to come will powerfully influence the happiness of Europe. The tyranny of Naples, like that of Spain, has fallen by that Army in which it placed its trust, to the exclusion of any reliance upon the affections of its subjects. Great dissatisfaction, it appears, had been long prevalent in this country among all classes; and the troops had participated in the general spirit which pervaded the community. At Palermo the discontents had assumed a threatening aspect, and preparations were making to send a part of the garrison of Naples to the island, when, on the 6th July, a deputation of the regiments in garrison intimated to the Commander in Chief the unanimous resolution of the army to have a representative free constitution. His majesty, alarmed at these manifestations, yielded to their application, and promised to prepare for them a free constitution with in a week-his ministers were dismissed, and persons chosen in their room, who póssessed the confidence of the troops and the people. The revolution was in this manner effected without bloodshed, and couriers were immediately dispatched to the differ ent Courts of Europe.

f

The chiefs of the revolutionary party, however, were dissatisfied with the proposed delay of a week in forming the basis of a new constitution, and insisted on the immediate adoption of the Spanish constitution. On the morning of the 7th, the second day of this great political crisis, a negotiation was opened, and the King, on the ground of ill-health, and the advice of his physicians, resigned the functions of government into the hands of his eldest son, the Duke of Calabria, with the title of Vicar General. The Duke issued a proclamation, promising the immediate adoption of the Spanish constitution. This promise, however, was not held satisfac tory. To make assurance doubly sure, another proclamation was issued on the night of the same day, by which the King confirms the promise of his son; and they both further undertake to swear to it, with all due form and solemnity. The troops then began to return to the city, and on the 9th, Gen. Pepe, the leader of the insurrection, arrived with part of his forces. On that day a proclamation was issued, forming a Provisional Junta of 15 members, until the installation of the national parliament. Five of them were nained, with authority
