   Anti Gallican Monitor (Newspaper) - December 3, 1815, London, Middlesex                                MONITO ootong to history-- So. 234.- Pr ce 9^.] KEtiAUKS ON THE PEACE WITH FRANCE. pfncr lie> to Franco, if Francs in Pe.im permit �' '("lit* jittft ami lineal entrant:? to our own : 11' not, bleetl France-'atitl Pome asretitl tu-Hrnvm." SUAKRSPEAr.E. That Peace, abstractedly considered, is a blessing conferred on mankind, and Warthe vei y reverse, ts a proposition which requires no proof; it is self-evident, and therefore does not admit of any fbut that it i$ a blessing which may be occasionally sucriliced, is almost equally evident, and that we have been for upwards of twenty year* engaged in a j ost. and necessary war, and that we have at length brought it, to a happy conclusion, few, even among the most hardened and desperate of our own democrats will presume to deny. In the progress of the contest, which, reckoning from the commencement of tin? French Revolution, has lasted above live and twenty vears, the chaiacter and object of the respective parties have been pretty clearly ascertained. IJoon a pa im:, the Jaeobin, the General, the Consul, the Fin pet or and, living; the Directory and the Commit tee of Public Safety, the Marats,the Dantous, the Touches, the Sieves, the Cambacereses, the Caulaincoui ts, the Car-nots & the Tcdlev rands, u ii h a long list of Revo-? jtiomtry heroes, all now (Is: y are politically defunct.

Is there no Mark Antony left to pronounce the funeral oration of the I1'rem'!) Revolution, hiuI of its " last best man," the Corsica n Hero? Shall the banishment of some patriots, and the ignominious execution of others, be regretted ..oiUy^Ui.silfeicie by their quondam friends tu�d co-mutes in, treason ? IJut so it is ; ingratitude is to he found among Republicans and Jacobins as well as anion" Courtiers ; and poor Napoi,i;opi, when he lay on our shore, on boar the (irst public writer to divulge, have been �acted upon; success has shewn that they were correct : this is certainly a great, satisfaction to me, especially as all other systems adopted against, him had proved fallacious; but I must, at the same iinie, express my regret that tin: coalition* of the former dnys of the Revolution were not. founded on similar principles, [lad � the Allies set about the great work of cxtermi- I nating the Revolution live and twenty years ago, with the same plain dealing, the same honesty and   good faith which characterise their been, and the< Debt of Great llritain would most probably not be one half of what it is tit present. Hut let us east a veil over former times: let. us think only of the A kf.x'an M'.U, of the Krancis, and   .likely to bring with it, no I mty })t�i feups b*> 'f|hove freely indulged in remarking upon, its 'iefects. Ik-fore I proceed u> any observation* l(sha!l here present my Readers with the folhlwjtig short abstract, which contains the substance of the Treaty and Conventions. They are gijven at full length in another part of this Paper, as they were presented by the Duke of Rlenr.i.lEU to  the Chamber of | Vers ;T~. The first, is: the Definitive Treaty helweet: the Allied Powers and France, hy which IVace i'i ro-csl ahlisiied npon tin: principles; of itecnriiiK to the Allies prop�r iioleiinetieK for the pnsi, :inted from the foregoing stipulation. fcifq' Annt'.itic;? are nlao to he re-writteu in the Great Book. A capital ol\l,.re.m,000 franci; is to be written in the '�reat Book, with iutei t's!, as a (7nanoitee Fund.

Let us compare also the sentiment s of the Duke with those which are to be found iu the French Journals published by authority, that we may discover whether the King possesses the inclination or the power to abide by the terms of this treaty. The Duke says, " that, during live and twenty years of troubles and disorderly cl.Vort'j3 mi uninterrupted series of invasion!;, conquests^ and destruction incessantly renewed, without distinction, compromised the political existence, and threatened even the social organization of all States and further on, he says, The burthens imposed upon us are heavy, and the distrust which is .shewn towards mi is well calculated to allect us ; but reflect, Gentlemen, 011 the fatal impression which must have been made on astonished and irritated Luirope, by. the unhappy catastrophe of which France has just, been the victim, and mill more by the facility with which the seditious have succeeded in triumphing over their own country ; reflect that the times iu which we have the misfortune to live, irumedi~ ately succeeded a- fatal period, in which, for -.Hi years, the respect due to alliances, to the en- 'gagements of peace, fidelity to promises, gr od faith, probity* �he basis formerly so revered as the security of States, have been shaken to the.ii* very foundation ; observe that the habitual, end as it were systematic violation of all the moral rules of politics* is, as it were, inherent in th# very piiuoipk of revolution^ ii terrible and fatal
