   Anti Gallican Monitor (Newspaper) - July 2, 1815, London, Middlesex                                THE ANTIGALLICAN MONITOR Afo. 932*-Price 8 -Vou   look  upon the  Declaration   of  the   Allien  of  the   1 :Jtii of  March,   and   subsequent   Declarations   as nothing !   Y��u change your opinions respecting the nature of your Government, and  that you think is to justify you  in  violating a sub-inn compact made with foreign States ! Alter assist-ing an Uusurper during a course of many years in his a tempts to conquer all Kurope--after inflicting innumeiahle calamities on almost evi'rv wlute and kingdom of it, all that time, you were at length beaten--driven   u ider the   walls of Your capital, a.i 1  to ward  off from   yourselves that fate uhieh you au justly merited, and from your co uitry the uihcni's  winch your crimes had drawn down upon her, \on consent :o part, with the Capt tin of \ our gang,   who  had  been r.omelitue betore b ipl ized Fmpernr, and who had givun the most of von (who were at  best but a ? ha I thy set,) tine new  titles  and splendid trap-pi g--\ou   onseuted to part with him for ever. On tn s OMidit ion, Me-sieurs of the two Chambers .in i  i t ne \ ,'o.n mission of (in ver n i iient, you were left in  posses-urn ui   your  plunder -your lives were spaced--\ on were allowed  to  return your nick-names-and, what was still more important, \ our em plov men* s, civil  and militarv. Tins, by the bye, was what I, for ooe,  thought extravagant lolly ; (or I knew it was not in your nature to b�; either honest or loyal ; and it  appear- I was rudiL    in a few months \ou  began plowing afresh.    Von   recalled  your Captain: lie dcclareti all that had been done nidi and vonl -euil- upon the assisianee of that army wInch he had brought up,  and familiarized to  t.ceues cf plunder, rape, and  rubbery, a.id whom 'ne pleasantly called   his  children : he called for your an'ustance abo who were in the secret of all this ; you come forwaid, exert all vour energies to further ids attempts, because yon expected to realise your own power ; he assembles a great army, appeals to anus in opposition to all   Europe-rushes to the combat, is   present proceedings ! 1 certainly have always looked upon Revolo iinnarv frenchmen an shameless rogues and rascals, and think I have from time to lime ehewn them to be so; but I i ever h -d ocea-im> to consider them as fools before. But in what light arc we to consider such a proposition as the substitution of Napoleon II. an infant of four years old, in place of Napoleon I. ? Certainly, a- great f.dly on the part of those who make it, or as a proof that they consider the Allies as no heter than fools. NtpoLEoN resigned in his own name and tha'of his (amil - was removed out of Trance to the Island of Elba, there he plowed the destruction of Louis' Government ; and we are to suppose- that remaining in Frame (for it does not appear that fluey. Mrtgudtowod-hiin out u�h)3 he wo*�ld in- terfere less with the Government than he did when at Elba. Frenchmen, I know entertain a very high opinion of their own abilities when compared with their neighbours, especially in mutters of intrigue; but this trick is too gross-the farce of Napoleon II. can neither delude nor amuse any one. But it u easy to see through the whole of this contrivance. These gentlemen who now compose what is called a commission of government, or a provisional government, are, naturally enough, very desirous to be acknowledged under some such title by the Allies, for if the Allies were to acknowledge them in any such character, they would then he in a condition to make terms (which undoubtedly is their great object) not only for Buonaparte and his family, but for such scoundrels as the Neys, the Soults, the Suciiets, and their other companions in guilt, as well as for themselves ; and if it heonly recollected that three out of the live gentlemen who compose the provisional government are ro-gicides, namely, C a ft not, Foucii e,& Qui nettk, the 4th the kidnapper of the Due D'Fnghien (C\iiLi NcouiiT,) the 5th an obscure grenadier ((Zrcnier), I have reason to think that they feel some little unea-iness on their own account. As I am convinced that their chief object must be to obtain  pardon for their own crimes and t�o further the escape of their leader, I  shall take the liberty, before  I proceed further,   to recommend to his Majesty's (lovcrumeut immediately to semi oil" a Flag of Truce by the way of ('.dais, to the persons exercising the powers of iv lvernmcut at Pa i is, to iuiWm them that they would be held responsible for the person of Na-poi.eon Bt'oN \parte; if he escape it must be by their connivance, ;jud therefore their lives should answer for it, and not only thoy but the city of Parin it-elf should  be held responsible.   The Dike of Weleb m;ton might send such st Flag of Ti ure, and I am sorry t hat it has not occurred to his (Since to have done so be for*?; but at present 1 can perceive no objection for sending it at once by the most di.ect road. We. have it. now in our power to nunisii crime effectually- to lay the axe to the root of the tree-��to utterly eradicate the evil, the shoots of which were spreading over the civilized world-we owe it to ourselves, to France, and the whole world to make the do1)-ing scene of the Revolution impressive and  awful.    After justice is done on the great Criminal, who should be publicly tried in the manner 1 have recommended,  for if he escape the business in not done, and he may, cnsome future oc'.-, cation, again  disturb the peace of Furopo.- When BuoNAPAUTV. is properly disposed of,   I would propose the following list of persons as justly obnoxious to capital punishment, namely, to- brothers, J K ROME, LuciEN and .) OsKPlJ-his brother-in-law  murat. NttY* SoULT, SUUJET, D'AVOUvr,  s\\vary, CamHACKItE�,.(.\vULAl>t- couiiT. La Hi'doykhk (this was the scoundrel who, with his own hand, shot (icneral Mar-, ciianis at (xcenoble, for adh.ering to hiu lawful Sove.eign).

The following might be let off with transportation for life->C a It not, FoU e acting for a person whom thev, the Allies, will not acknowledge-i.s these CominiHsioners sire aware of this, ami are not empowered to treat in any other character, or for any other government, they may endeavour to make their own personal safetv. a id that of their friends, the terms of their bubmissiou to the government of Louis XVIII.; the rejection therefore of the proposri tion which they are (irst. about to make, in t\\o name of Napoleon II. immediately taking place, they have nothing left but absolute submission to the royal government, if they can profit by that, submission ; if they can persuade the Allies that it is in any degree voluntary, tin *y will obtain the object of their wishes, and the Buonapartesuud that republic which some were dreaming of will be given up at oneo-w Louis will be restored without any opposition, and so ends the mission. I speak here of the plan which these rebels have most probably traced out for themselves, but 1 trust the mpi� dity of Lord Wellington, and Bi.vciitiii'a movements, will frustrate all their schemes, ami oblige them to submit unconditionally. The King of France accompanies Lv>rd Wellington, who, in his proclamation, speaks in a manner not to be misunderstood of the intention of our Government to support the Bourbon cause. Supposing therefore Louts XVIII. about to be restored forthwith, it ought be expected that f should, indulge in some speculations as to the manner in which his Government may in future be conducted.   It is not however for me to pretend to say what the conduct of the King will be, but in my humble opinion it should be directly the reverse of what it has been hitherto ; had it been thai, of a King of France before, his Government would  have  had all the support which my humble abilities could afford ; bet �u; his Majesty was advised to act rather as a sno cessor of Napoleon than as  King of France,, I was obliged to withhold it - My opinions were always given in a disinterested manner, and weie always on the side and in support of legitimate authority ; they were not to he had as those of wrniii of our public writers hive been, by hi mi who could best nay.   1 have not one day supported Louis XVIII.  and in the name breath Mu ft at, Bern a dotte, Ciiristopii e, A'oe, mui afterwards written against them ; 1 wrote on the character of Buonaparte's   Government,'and have spoken freely of Louis XV III. because I knew them hot!.).   The freedom with which t have spoken of the latter will perhaps lie    cu >ed when it is known that he owes his life to 'i.e.--A work of mine will be shortly before th : public., {n/i/ Mission io Warsaw), with num"iour> anecdote!:,'which will explain what I at present have only hinted at.    The appearance of the publication to which I allude will shew the correctn< of my opinions as to the Revolutionary characters in general, as well as other persons.    1 am informed  bin Majesty has 'already commenced in  a manner' that promises well ; l.e has dismissed Blacas who is now in tllii'i country, in a private capacity. But it now remains to be seen what sureties- we are to obtain against the return of revoi'utiouary Commotions? in future-1. uie.iu from the same quarter-France. This is now our principal ob� ji-ct, and on this point it gives me great pleasure to geerthut Lord Grewville, in the House of LordsyRud Mr. Wymne, in the House of Commons, have insisted on our Government requir-� ing very ample security.   What that security is ; to be which they think sufficient, has not been ' stated by them; and were I not morally certaiuj, . that before this paper can reach the Continent the Duke of Wellington will be in Pariu, no expression of an irritating nature would fall from me;and even as matters sPand I should be r.orry to say one word that could be proved to be improper.   It should not irritate the sober minded people of that country (if these be any of that description there) to say that their Revolutionary armies must be entirely reduced ;   that it is absolutely expedient that a foreign force should occupy tiie .strong places of that country, for a few vears to come, and that this force should be maintained at thecxpence of France; that France also should be made to pay hugely towards the expeuces which we have incurred by the present war. These terms may appear severe, and Franee may think them so, but who will suyttn. they|f" are unjust.    The. bouitOONIsTs must know th;vtC~ thev  are  the price of   their security ; SU,VJ5V|^' iherdWe they cannot complain ; and an to tjt^^
