it was then hoped that they might be induced to proclaim the son of Bonaparte, and to attack the Thullieries and the Royal Family. Among the officers engaged in the plot, the French papers mention a Captain of the Legion of the North, named Dequevauvillers, who, it is said, served in the guard of Murat, when he occupied the throne of Naples; also a Captain of the Legion of La Meurthe, who has absconded. Some of these officers were arrested at their homes, in the city, by the gendarmerie; others were taken into custody at their barracks, by the orders of their Colonels, and by the soldiers even of their own corps. A commission of the peers was immediately appointed to examine those implicated in this conspiracy, 46 in number; upon being separately interrogated, eight of these were set at liberty. It appears, that the discovery of this plot had occasioned considerable agitation in the provinces, where, it is said, it had extensive ramifications; but the latest in telligence from France asserts that tranquil. lity again reigns throughout the country.

The trial of the Abbe de Pradt, formerly Archbishop of Malines, and his book seller Bechet, came on for hearing before the Assize Court of Paris on Monday the 28th August. The charges were for having written, printed, and published a work, entitled "Of the Affair of the Election Law," tending to excite disobedience to the laws; to attack formally the constitutional authority of the king and the chambers, and to stir up civil war in the kingdom. After a long trial the jury acquitted the accused of all the charges, and they were discharged.

SPAIN. About the beginning of August, an attempt was made by some ecclesiastics of Galicia, assisted by deserters from the infamous regiment of the Guides, (who were concerned in the massacre at Cadiz,) to collect an armed force for the purpose of effecting a counter-revolution. The clergy formed themselves into a Junta, which they modestly called Apostolic; but being unable to maintain themselves in Spain, they retired within the frontiers of Portugal. It was believed that their proceedings were countenanced by the Archbishop of San Jago, and the Bishop of Orense. The insurgents having collected a small body of men, ventured to recross the Minho, for the purpose of seizing upon the heights of Pennizas, but they dispersed at the approach of some troops dispatched against them by the Junta of Galicia; and a subsequent dispatch from Arguelles announces the total dissolution of the Apostolic

Junta.

The Cortes and Government of Spain labour incessantly to set things right, produce order, regulate the revenue, and reorganize the army and navy; and in their

VOL. VII.

labours they derive great encouragement from the good spirit evinced in the provinces. A decree has been issued, re-establishing several enactments of the former Cortes, by which certain prebends and other ecclesiastical sinecures were to be made applicable to the State, the use of the torture abolished, and containing a variety of other important regulations. In order that the Inquisition may be the more effectually abolished, the property of that establishment had been put up for sale, beginning with the sumptuous palace, formerly occupied by the Inquisitor-General in Madrid, the one used by the Tribunal, with secret cells, &c. together with several houses situated in the capital. The proceeds are to be applied to the liquidation of the national debt. The Cortes have also agreed to a proposition for rendering null and void the restoration of the Jesuits, who are to be subjected to the provisions of the former decree for the abolition of their order in Spain. A proposition is before the Cortes, for the intro duction into Spain of Trial by Jury.

Another important state paper has emanated from the Russian Cabinet, on the affairs of Spain. It is addressed to all the ministers of Russia, and is intended to communicate to the great powers of Europe the sentiments of the Russian Monarch on the late revolution in Spain, which he highly disapproves of, and reprobates in the strongest terms. In this revolution he sees the germ of other revolutions, which are to spread over Europe; and, without recommending any active measures, it seems to be his Majesty's opinion that a military coalition should be formed, for the purpose of re-establishing the former government of Spain, and forcing the discontented Spaniards to submit to whatever terms the Emperor of Russia and his august allies may please to dictate. This, though it is not avowed, is the only practical inferenee which can be drawn from the sen timents expressed in the state paper. It does not appear, however, that it has met with the approbation of any of those powers to whom it was addressed.

SICILY. The proclaiming of the Neapolitan constitution in Sicily was attended by deplorable consequences, which are thus described in a letter, published in one of the journals of Naples :-" The first impulse of the people of Sicily, on hearing, on the 14th of July, the news of the revolution which had broken out at Naples, was to wear the tricoloured badge of the Constitution. But this lasted only a single day. On the 15th, the yellow or Sicilian ribband was displayed in conjunc tion with the other. An accident, or an indiscretion, exasperated the people against the Neapolitan authorities and troops: General Church, an English officer in the pay of Naples, zealous, perhaps, though LI

unfortunate in the application of his zeal, is said to have torn the badge of Sicilian independence from the breast of an unarmed citizen. Enraged at this act, the forts in possession of the Neapolitan soldiery were attacked and carried by the islanders An association of distinguished individuals was formed for the maintenance of tran quillity, but in vain. On the night of the 16th, the garrison were concentrated in the public squares of Palermo. On the morning of the 17th, 700 prisoners were released from confinement by the populace. Then (says the writer) the work of death began. The Neapolitans were furiously attacked, and, we fear, indiscriminately butchered." :

The accounts in general labour to throw a veil over the circumstances and amount of the carnage; but a statement, which seems to deserve confidence, estimates the loss of life at 2000 killed, and about 3000 wounded. The Prince Vicar-General had sent a small squadron to bring off from Palermo such Neapolitans as could be saved, and as many Sicilians as were in clined to transfer themselves to Naples.

The latest accounts from this country state that the Archbishop of Palermo, who had provisionally taken the reins of Go vernment, had succeeded in re-establishing order and tranquillity in that city; but in other parts of the island, it appears that the Sicilians hold out for independence, although it is said that they have no objection to receive one of the members of the Neapolitan Royal Family for their constitutional King. no

The Dutch had made two very desperate at tempts, but without success, to retake a place of considerable importance on the islands of Sumatra, which had fallen into the hands of the natives, by whom the European residents had been most inhu manly massacred. In the last attack some ships of war succeeded in getting within fire of the fort, the natives poured in a heavy discharge of musketry and great

guns, and set fire to nearly 100 bamboo houses, which, floating down the current, carried destruction among the vessels. Strong symptoms of dissatisfaction were manifested in several other of the Dutch settlements in India. The treatment of the natives by the Dutch is said to be very barbarous; and it is thought that it is in consequence of such ill treatment the dis affection is so manifest, and that a large force is requisite to keep the natives in sub jection.

Advices from the coast of Barbary, of the 10th July, contained in letters from Gibraltar of the 13th of the same month, state that an insurrection of a formidable nature had taken place in the army of the Emperor of Morocco. A regiment of the guards to the Emperor, being ordered to escort him from Rebolt, one of his summer residences, to Morocco, refused compliance, and, disregarding all attempts to restrain them, suddenly marched off towards Fez, which they entered tumultuously, where they committed the greatest excesses, plundering and ill treating all the inhabit ants, but particularly Jews. They next directed their march towards Tetuan; but the inhabitants, aware of their approach, res sisted their entrance, and compelled them to retire. The Emperor, with a portion of his guards that remained faithful, pros ceeded towards Morocco, but had taken no measures to bring back the rebellious troops to their duty. This state of things had spread great alarm through the coun→ try, and caused a complete interruption to the commerce by land.

Papers have been received from St Thomas's, confirming the important intelligence, that Morillo, with his army, and the whole of the Caraccas, had accepted the new Spanish Constitution. A complete amnesty was granted, the prisons were thrown open, and all those who had emigrated were invited to return home with the most solemn assurances of safety. Morillo had sent copies of his proclamation to this effect through the whole of the West Indies.
