They suppose that the very wortl Akii^pnlticaih keeps a spirit of national hostility alive, and that nothing but miiiclimf �-*�� result from such wicked perseve-raiicein the old system of opposition to French jiriucipb.'l. To this I'shall answer, that if facts correspond wiih professions--if France were sincerely disposed to maintain those friendly relation*, 1 would be the lavt man in the world to endeavour to keeji �p a hostile feeling on our part. But if France, under her present Government* maintains the same hostile spirit a^aiusttlns country as when under Buon Av\uri:, arev?e immediately to adopt a system of cordi-lity iowifds our inveterate litics; one supports the I)uonarartists, the ther the Bouhbon (ioverunient, as if the in-|-Tests of England depemled upon the name $\ the ruling dynasty in France. If we attend 0 one party, they endeavour to persuade, us that iir Government has been instrumental in des-iwing a free, peaceably disposed Government in rauee, (meaning liuosAPARTK's after \m re-urn from Elba,) and even in violating the law 1 nations, solemn compacts, &c. &c. in assist-the present Government of France in pei- ^'utia^and immolating its innocent subjects, f>e Nr.Ys, the Lasjedoykres, and the Lav alettes : the other party, now that the liouu-ojjs are restored, bid u� be satislicd ; that every ta^ure of that Government shews evident proof wisdom, and that th* virtues of the King and Princes of his House; aud their gratitude to-ar<ls'this country, are sure pledges of the per-*'J�i)ce of the most happy tranquility between two nations. It is not necessary for me to nation the journals in which these different otion* are inculcated ; but I would find it dif-e l^r.s, who, ev�eu in that country, are not permitted to -give vent to their bile against England, and lavish their abuse against every thing which 'is iflus'tri-. ons in it--abuse too foul to be; admitted even into their own journals.

We is magisterial, or dictatorial if you will-I object to it because it savours of arrogance-be-cause it is lighting under a borrowed shield. , It is, iu mv. humble opinion,_ proper that every public writer should divest himself of .suelj adventitious assistance, iu order that the Public should be able to estimate the value of the political sentiments, by knowing who be is, from whom they proceed, and also that they may lie aide to detect immediately any departure from hii> principles. The English Newspapers are divested of their'responsibility by the prevalence of the custom, and the Editor can, on any future day, when attacked as an apostate, deny the objectionable article to be written by him, and say that it was the work of some other'person.
