Anti Gallican Monitor (Newspaper) - August 20, 1815, London, Middlesex THE ANTIGALdLICAN MONITOR fin. 839 -Price Brf.] ** Pcncr be. to Fr.-inrr, if France in r��cc permit *' The just and lineal entrance to our own : " If nut, blrl emi-ne'iily qualified by nature to hold the reins of Km pi re. We see how the fond affections of hin English admirers are turned toward* their great in his last moments; his every word and look lias been noted by them-they have (ms the psalmist sa\ s) 44 put his tears in their buttle,1' and many, no doubt, were ready to 44 - - beg a H;3ir of him for menu iv, 01 Aim?, living, oii'iil ion it within thi-ir \viHn9 '* fk^nealhiug it, as a rich l�'gu�-ys *' Unlo their icsnv.* � But why not ?--they ami he were consistent ii! their conduct and their views; they equally looked to tile de;.t.r net ion of the British {Ou-"iTtimeni as the consummation of 1 heir hopes; Mil d a ay the truth, they, as well as he, have luhouretl hard to attain a heir object. But though be has ceased to be the Great Sovereign, his njUlbrtune:> �hew his character in uu amiable point of view. This is another light in which the English -democrats view and admire him: but Set me In re put my countrymen on their guard against such insidious appearances as we may have constantly seen exhibited by Frenchmen in every rank of life while in this country. The French emigrants, while here, were all am-liue&t) and humility ; but who has witnessed their conduct, political ao well aft private, on thi-ir return to their own country-^ I five an their conduct towards this country, tvlu-ch 'afforded th�ui shelter & protection-Who will not sny that it hasp so generals, been marked with the basest ingratitude ? With a few iouis in their pockets, and a house over their heads on the other side the water, then their manner is a** Overbearing as before it wiia humbJe ; and as a general rule this will be found to apply to the whole, from the very highest to the very lowest. 1 fear we must ad'mtt, in some respects, ouv inferiority c!' understanding tc Frenchmen in gene~ ruL, Have we not been their dupes for these twenty years and more ? One part of our nation has been the dupes of Emigrants; the other of Republicans, Regicides, mid of Buonaparte. The Mtost respectable part of the English nation tvow see it to be so ; but or.r stupid hunters after liberty are still ready to give their court-deuce to and support the projects of any, or of very scoundrel who has been inclined to disturb the peace of his own country,or of Europe-- o they have alwa\s acted, and so they seem disposed to act at nrest u�. Even the conduct of BtfOM a parte towards Pa t.M (I should rather say the murder of Paim, of Hofeer, of the Due D'Enoiiiev, and of thetrowu countryman, Capuin Wright,) has, so far from being censured, on the contrary, been in general defend ed by them. For the latter, according to them, there is no pity, though put to death by torture, because (say they) he was employed asaspy by the British Government. This is an insult on common sense, which is beyond endurance. Where are the pioofs of this-why not produce them ?-� Did the character of Napoleon stand so high as not to require any ? They were not produced for the same reason, as none were produced in the other eases which I have mentioned--because there were not any to produce ; but every one acquainted with Wright's history knows that he never acted as a spy. Hit there \* this consolation left, that none but the desperate in character-men lost to shame, and the lowest of the low, will believe the insinuations which some of Buon apartr/s adherents in this country have sometimes ventured to hint respecting the supposed guilt of Captain Wright, and the other victim* of Napoleon's spirit of barbarous cruelty and revenge. But enough of Buon aparte-let iis for the present consider him as politically dead ; let his epitaph be written by the Edinburgh Reviewer*, or some poetof their appointment. To the present Ruler, ami present Government, of Fiance, I must now direct my Headers' attention,, The abstract right of bj. itimate and hereditary sovereignty is a subject, the discussion of winch exeiies verv little interest in quiet and ordinary times ; like that of choosing our own governors, it becomes interesting from circumstances alone. It was from an imparl ial view of the mischief, attending this hitter doeli inc, and from actual observation of the effects which it had produced, and of the hoi: tide principles of which it had been the parent, that I hint cir gaged tinsel i a > x public writer on she side and in support of Set;-, tin1. �e sovereignty ami here-v.. i v.-.i. ibat bad buov APtnTg "�*n lunged ir, tins tountrv, lusgollows cut up tiio uo ii-pick/wotim beot'iuttuvust: vaioc to the fortuume po6a�i>aorc ish aital�-,cure wiewh, an inferior agent tu ii, late reb� llwtn, such as L a ill", jpn v k v. or La Vaj,-l.v'.tte, is put ujion his tiial for con>qut'ing against the K?nj to determine.

Yet we arinformed that Talleyrani> assured his Maj*.sT� that it was the intention of the Allies to reduce the F'rencla territory, and that it was necessary, sib order to prevent it, to excite the national feeling, and that there was no other way of doing this but by taking FoutUE into the Ministry, who is eon*� sidered the sheet anchor of all the old Republic cans. He does e�o ; and thus by putting his Governmeut into the hands of rneti who have been disturbing the peace of Europe for the last twenty vears, lie, by this very act, points out tc the Allies that there is a necessity for their doing that which, were Frame under other council^ they would never have thought of.
