Anti Gallican Monitor (Newspaper) - December 17, 1815, London, Middlesex � Peace be to Fruuce, if France in Peace permit �� The ju�t and Hneal entrant* to ouro*B : * If not, blued Frmice -qhcI Pvnce aacrnd ta Heaven."-SwAKEftytiAUK. DECEMBER 17, istr,. Bishop's Walt hum, on the 34th of March, 1810, was recaptured at Hustings and Rent to Nor. man-cross prison on the I5th of April, IBIO . he was afterwards re-admitted to parole at Ash-burn. On the 5th of March, 1811, he a second time violated his parole, and was apprehended, and sent into confinement at Chatham. The following translation tf'a letter will throw some light upon this subject:- Aslilnmrn, Sept. 6,1810. To the most Honourable t!�i* Commissioners of the Trans* porl Office. The Adjutant Comuuuulnul Pilkt, and Captain Pao- lucci, of the Koynl Italian Navy. Honourable Gentlemen,-In conformity to your ilirec-tions, \vc repaired to Aslihnmrt, the depot assigned to us by you, where we arrived on the 1st instant. Accept, Gentlemen, our thanks for the manner, as obliging ns prompt, in winch you have forwarded to \\\ Ferdinand Mendez Pinto was but a Type of thee, �' Thou Liar eftEe first magnitude."--Congrkyb. In the las�t Number of this Paper I gave a few extracts from the above work, which, as I stated, I took from the Quarterly iteview, but I have �nce received the book itself, from which I shall nuke some further extracts, and add an observation or two. What an ignorant, malicious Frenchman, confined several years u close prisoner in our prison ships at Woolwich, might say of our Government, our laws, manners, state of society, &e. would not be worth notice, were it not for its carrying with it a certain political bearing.- Every thing which issues from the French press must have been previously presented to the Po- I lice in manuscript; who then will deny that this publication, which is a libel on every thing respectable in this country, has received the sanction of the French Government? And hen- t will Mke upon myself to say, that even Buonaparte a , � would never have suffered such an atrocious libel lus memo,'.v> "auiely, that in ] 8t:j, when confined j as this to appearagainst any Government with T , f,H: hu,ksa ,ie was ,,ot ^together idle, ! which he was at peace.

The General has the effrontery to quote from " the Winter in London,*' (a book published herein 180t�-he says*, in 175)(>-a bonk in which the prevailing follies of the day were beverely I satyrized,) certain infamous charges against. two> Ladies of very high rank, not. one word of which \h to be. found in that work: the following are his words.
