Anti Gallican Monitor (Newspaper) - December 10, 1815, London, Middlesex ill So "5.-, -Price 9<f.] ** Pence be l� France, if France in Pence permit *' The jnst *nd Wneal entrance to our own : ** If itnt, bleed France--find Penre mend to Heaven. -SiiAKKsr* Ants. DECEMHF.R 10, isi.-.. PEACE WITH FRANCE. In my last Number I gave my opinion on the Treaty of Pence with France. In the course of luat week the German Papers which we have received exhibit much discontent on the part of the honest inhabitant* of that nation, on account of the Treaty ; all agreeing that sufficient has not been done to curb French insolence, of which we have specimens every day, as well from the Government as from the people. It is a pity that the Allied Sovereigns, when ihey sent off BtioWAPARTF.,did not think of the Revolutionary queue which he left behind, and also of the insolence for which the French Government has been always remarkable. It will be seen from a private letter, which is inserted in another part of thi� Paper, (�"d who can doubt its authentic city, as it appeared in the Times newspaper of Wednesday lust,) that even the Duke of Wellington himself has been openly insulted by the French Court. There is one point to which 1 would wi�h to direct the attention of the Allied Sovereigns; namely, to the necessity of relieving the troops which are stationed in France, and that frequently, as by remaining there for any length of time they are likely to be corrupted. Minister?! of State and Sovereigns have been the dupes of French seduction and intrigue, is it then to be expected that their armies will not Id I into the same snare-that ihey will not be enamoured of French mattresses* French wince, French manners, &e. and thus their un'miOMicy against FrAH''e will not be diminished while that of the French against the Allies will be increased Let these Sovereigns recollect mm! apply the account which is handed down to -us of the state | �of Uannisui/s army after a long residence at $ r.ipun. j In order that I may shew my Readers that I t respect Hit;; [j am not singular m my opinion France, I have thought |K'<s|:um- this the assistance of an ally, a very �bic xvritef in ! he ul m newspaper,v whose opinions, a net �iiihjoin, appeared in that.

' ' This is an evil, which King l,oi?t Vanity is the prcvading principle of France, nnd of all her children-Buonapartists and Bourhonitcs. Vanity-is her prevailing passions, which brought upon Europe the Calamities of twenty five years' war, and shook to their scats Thrones. Establish-meats, and Morals; which brought upon France the peril of rcti ibution, and which continues in her abasement the danger of her ascendency. And wb accord with this vanity! and wr, soothe, and console,, and Hatter it, and almost appologize for the wound which we have atlicted upon it \ History is consulted in vain, and antinuity �earched for novelties of such capricious mischief -\ romance, perhaps, or a mclo-drainc, may supply us with precedents; but we do not turn to the sobrieties of life for striking incident and strtge effect. It looked very haudsnnc, certainly, to make our enemy a present of one hundred thousand prisoners, for the pleasure of their being re taken next summer by our Ally; and it will have an equally pretty appearance, now, to evacuate France to the re-expufsion of her legitimate Sovereign and the re-spoli;uion of Europe.

The Legitimacy which renins aft-r x'M years el expulsion, must destroy every trace ot the intermediate rebellion ! until that salutary purgation shall be accomplished, it is not legitimate. France and Europe seem hastening onward,, wi!h most concurrent union, .to the, third P/oiit: Witt.-For the sake of human life, and as even siich a Victory as YV aticui.oo is at best but a sorrowful matter, it would have been better, perhaps, to do first what must be done at la-st-.f-and TUAIBI, PARIS INTO HE It CATACOMBS " If if weiv done, when 'ib ilouc, I hen vl.wey . well " St wire 'tone quickly." at Dumhvd and lify c.-qjii vi s to one conqueroi !

But it is rathe? too much, thai this monstious anomaly should be expended to his subalterns--this subversion of all national, and of all particular law; this noxious pri vilege, ttjis pevil >us impunity, which ajipear designed tur the safe guaid of treachery, and the aban-<loiuneut of honour. Justice raised her hand ; and rested after the fmit blow. Never ou�ht she to have commenced the work, or never to leave it unaccomplished.--Uow most that vigour be derided, which evaporates in oidonnances, and hawaugues, and accusations; vdsich ponders " about it and about it" through | U)m months, brinutfiir 'he criminal to trial, then i - .......i ..... the bar is pitched some leng'hs beyond th I'liberni-.m, who took only ten prisonei i-uuiidiiit* f/tfi.'l !

We caie not which--it matters not, nof a shied of Nau'ozj-ion's old purple. Did not the peace of Europe require the punishment of French Treason-be the tiaitois one, one hundred, or one bundled thousand-we should trouble our-selves, how little ! whether the King consigned them to the scaffold, or received them into his bosom. But, even in the conduct, of Nicy's trial, for crimes committed publicly, unblushingly., and .-.vowediy, marl; we the hesitation of (he Tiibunals, B and the characU r of the .bulges': Already he has escaped one Jurisdiction by the privilege of his Peerage--///'.'

Thus, his crime i:, his privilege, and, by a reciprocal re-action Ids privilege is his eiitne. If an added proof were requisite, this shews the folk'and the weakness of the French Covcrnment.
