   Anti Gallican Monitor (Newspaper) - April 30, 1815, London, Middlesex                                THE MONITOR So. g?3 - Price 8d.] " Peace be to France, if France in Peace permit *' The juM mul linen) entrsmr t* uw own : �( If not. Weed France-and Peuce ascend to Heaven." -SlIAKF.SPRAnE. RCM.lP.K9 ON TMF. PRKSENT STATE Of HIIRO PE *< O Tcmpf-r prnxfc deridoir Amptstc M*jaf� I-pargnc mai ? je vis par euriosilt-** T have frequently hud occasion to quote the above hoes from Mercier, the witty author of the Tabtetm He Paris. Now ! now ! citizen Merrier, if you were -alive, you might well ssv * d it in their power to art such a noble part, but who, through false policy or po�.i-iauimitv, neglected il-me a who had tbe der.fi-nies of the world, the repose of nations in their hands, and who have carelessly consigned them to the demon �>f discord, that, were it net for a airong seuse of duly, 1 would most willingly retire from the field of politicsj leaving perfidy and successful villainy to correct the blunder:* of Ki�>  at present-�us that punishment; is amply shared w it it the nations which they govern, it is our duty, as it is our interest, to seek to make it as liM-Vit as possible, if we cannot entirely avoid it. On one occasion in the present' reign, our most gnu-ions Majesty said, with a courage Wi^-thv his House, that though his Magistrates }ia<1 inflected their duty he wsh n<�t jo neglect bis t let' �s apply the same sentiment to the present a (fairs of Fat rope, and all may still be -(,V:  in tm school of war and politic* should not be rewarded, but severely dealt with; I also stated formerly, and that repeatedly, that the Allied Sovereigns should carry on the war in the name, and as Allies of Louis XVlil.- all this ! recommended as long as live years back ; but at that tune my project was thought to be extravagant and Quixotic, and I myself was looked upon as little fetter than a man who had lost his senses ; but now the Allies have adopted my sentiments; unfortunately however, out of season, especially as it relates to our acting with Louis XVill. b That it ia atill possible to 6iicceed in what we We undertaken i have not the least doubt Vigorous and united efforts will eertaiuly accomplish the downfall of Buonaparte and his banditti, bat if it is thought to be �u easy task, I by no mean* tweede to that opinion ; And here I wish to put my Headers and the public on their triuird against the insinuations of certain newspapers in this country, regularly enlisted and paid by the Bourbons, which newspaper* renresetit Buonaparte's present power as quite trifling and unstable. So far from this being the fact, it will be found that it requires the energies of all Rurope to pur. down the system of villainy which is now ostahlished in. France ; for it is villainy in no ordinary form, a desperate soldiery arid able officers on the one hand, ren-dereVi ferocious from conscious guilt, and on the other Atheists and Jacobins--beings devoid of human hearts and human feelings, and of every moral principle, but who ha>ve given ample proof already that great talents may exist, in minds i\hirh have not one amiable quality to recommend them. The Cabinets of Europe will therefore have work enough before them for some time to come. I do not wish to mislead my countrymen by representing the enemy In be w the Consulate to the eomrneneeme&it of the late Conspiracy, which has once more given him pos�� session of sovereign jxever. Even thoiic/ of that class whom he found it necessary to employ formerly, did not like hiiu0 neither did he like them. Mis Minister, Fouelic--his Counsellont of State, Ileal, Berthier, Thibadean,, Merlin-all Jacobins, and employed by him, nevertheless; hated him most cordially, and, to use a homely phraae9 there way no love lost, between them. Now all h\ changed ; all the Jacobinu, besidet* other powerful men, are now with him ; for not to mention his Generals^ all of whom have sprung from the ranks by the Revolution, the owner:! of national property, as well as the men of letters, the number of whom in France is not inconsiderable, are all with him. Bat it may be asked what has once more re> occasioned Jacobinical principles to revive in Fiance, and in other countries, which I myself know to have been held in abhorrence in that country as well na in others--that is the point which I shall now investigate.   The conduct of moat of Buonaparte's Revolutionary General:, and Marshals had been, through their whole career, in the highest degree iufamouH-^most of them had amassed immense fortunes by robbery and murder--many of them were men of the vilest and most brutal manners, as well as the lowest origin, and yet, when the Emperor of Russia was in Paris, we found him visiting and caressing characters.of the stamp which 1 have just described.   His usher on this oeeasion, was the celebrated Swiss Republican, La Harpe, who is still his confidential friend.   No doubt it wa� with the beat intentions that his Russian Majesty visited s�ch characters us Ney, and Madame Josephine and her daughter.   If we add to this, that Lotus XVlil., so far from acting as the legitimate Kiu^ of France, tm he was, was obliged, from circumNtaiices, to act its the nuc* cessor of Napoleon, conferring honour not only on  Buonaparte's Marshals and Generub, but even extending them to the near relatives of Buonaparte himself-to his daughter and sister* in-law, the ci-devant Queen of Holland-torn* plimeuting, with the appellation of conistu. such, wretches a* Aogereau, a ga\leysUtve,>ind Brunep who paraded the head of Madame de Lumballe about the streets on u pike, on tin* memorable day of the id of September,  179-3. and hit speeches to the same Marshals, telling them that their victories were $vlways dear to him, that they were a consolation to him in bis exile, and. that his Marshals were his best support.   I omitf, many other instances of similar R bodomontade,, but; when all this is taken into consideration, what; must these same Marshals and others think ?-� why that virtue,, character, honour, wen; hut mere names, nothing more--that to be a villain leads to favour and promotion under all govern^ ment.s, that in principle there was, no dilferencei between a Louis XV IU. and a Buonaparte, ami that the world had forgot  their former infamy,, and would forget their lot ore if they should only iineeeed in it. The\ knew that all France abhorred them as villains, with the exception el" their* ussociiiitos in crime, but who would presume to> eonsi'ler them as any thing bu1 as fair and honourable men, when they saw ibeni caressed not n.ndv by foreign Sovereigns, but by their own law-* ful King, against whom they had been lighting all their lives, whose relations they had murder-' ed, and  who, by t'i'ir rapine and murder, hail caused  the French name to  be detested ui aha Liost evcrv country in Furoped have no doul�t, way pas >U d;etate< 1)1(4, t|-�4t bbudihead IHacas ; but thus to eoufouud j tin: unu;hed, but rcw-n-dv.d with u handsome pention.
