JVLY 30, isi.i. THE TRIUMPH OF JACOBINISM. Iu the last Number but. one of this Paper I apologized to my Readers Tor  having been  in-atrumental in leading them into errors, lor almost live years past, by endeavouring to expose tl>e horrors of  Regicide and   Rebellion,  and what I conceived to be the wickedness of Buo-jiapartk and the Jacobins of tht  French  Revolution ; (but strange to tell !) before the conclusion of the article, I  liud that I  relapsed into my old strain, and lamented the triumph of Jacobinism, Regicide, and Rebellion; and so unfortunately   unaccommodating is the spirit which leads me. on, I cannot, even now, see or think that I was in an error, notwithstanding tiie conversion of Lou is XVIII. and (if we believe the Morning l/ironkle* even of Lord Cas-Tt.v. uk a ft h himself), to the politics of Fouciin and of Jacobinism.    Let but the Reader observe the acts of Lotus XV Ul.th's Government since his return from (�hent,and read  the. proclamations of D.woust, Sue hit and  others-let him remark the conduct of a Biiiink and a  r heaven than earth, and if an up.. poitunitv piesent itself, they will not fail to use their be>t endeavours to tend htm there.

The age in which we live is certainly ferfiAe in wonder*.

It was t herefore the object of all men's wishes to destroy the man himself, bis system, and his associates.    Providence, alter two \ ears of reverses, put this great enemy of freedom and of the human race in thf power of his enemies. By some   strange   fatality the   punishment, of this great criminal was forgotten.    LotJlsX\ SIS. was recalled to the throne of his ancestors, and retains about his person and throne the unpunished but. highly criminal associates of ihioNA-1>artk.    1 shall not stop hero to investigate his reasons for doing an.    Lotus himself, one would suppose, had seen their fallacy in the  events of March last.    He was driven from his throne in March, 5815-was restored again  in July-the Usurper is now in our power, and the troops of the Allies occupy, for the second time, the very focus of Jacobinism.    What, Readers! did  we �dl look for on the second return of Louis XVI11, --that, the crimes of c25 yeors of rebellion were to be expiated, and Providence seemed, by  suffering the hardened hearts of the most distinguished offenders to cover themselves with the guilt of a tiew conspiracy and  rebellion, to point out the verv victims !-The experiment of pardon and mercy   had  before been tried in  vain.    What then remained in policy and injustice but punishment ?  Vengeance, 1 know, should not enter a royal mind ; but a sovereign cannot but feel as ot her men do, perhaps their feelings should  be more acute-some expiation sure was nect>sury, if not for former, at least for very recent crimes. Noihing of that kind however has taken place- so far from it, one of the principal  conspirators i.s  his Majesty's   confidential   Minister,  and there is every appearance that hick of a similar description will be retained ui every department i.f tha; public service. My Readers will recollect, that as soon as 1 learne.', last year, that the Kin� watt about to deliver himself into the hands, of the Buona-PAltrisTs, I took the liberty of raising my warning voice ugaiiwst it; but alter the cxoeiH ment which his Ma.IK.sty had made of the loyallV of th Bl'ON -VPARTIsTs, 1 could not. have supposed such infatuation as that he would again admit such men into his ministry. It ts dillicnll to divine the motives which dictated such tx strange line of policy upon the part of the Kin ft, or to shew what good ends may he answered by it: to pardon an enemy is at. times wise as well as generous-but surely not an enemy who shews a determined purpose never to forget his hostility, and never to omit un opportunity of renewing it. Attempts, I know, have been made to justify the late rebellion in France, as well as there had been attempts previously made to prepare the minds of the people to expect it. Such, for in-stance, was the object of C.VltNOT's puuphh t.--I am ready to admit, that a King may, by aeh* of tyranny and oppression, justify rebellion ou the part, of his subjects; but that a case of that kind was made out against the late government of Louis, is a supposition so extravagant, as not to be examined lor a moment ; and yet ontl would imagine, from what has lately happened,, that it was the KlNft who had offended, by giving cause for a rebellion-not. his subjects, by entering into it. It is not ni\ object to enter into a formal tie-fence of the IJo\nl (Jovcrnment of France, alter the fall of BuoNArAltTK las>t year ; but that there wis any tendency to destroy the liberty of Frenchmen, is what ! deny. Some overt aetu should he laid t o just i fy such a charge against the KlNU, as a design to destroy the constitution which he had given them ; surmise, or opinion, a w th/ wmiiii have sobst tj!iciit i will B-ever justify" rebellion.
