The front oTthis Paper is generally dedicated to original articles, and one was accordingly prepared by me for this day, vi/. " On the Conduct of the Revolutionary Goveiuments of France towards Foreign State-," when the following Statu Paper, as it may be termed, crmie to hand yesterday evening, and as it is interesting in itself, and did isot appear at length in any of the Kvening Papers of yesterday, I thought it would lie mire gratifying to my Headers to give it the. preference. One principal reason which prompts Uuonapuse to the publication el this paper a:id decree is, without doubt, thai lie may be enabled to lenew the system of terror. L. G. �REPORT FK01W Till', MINISTF.Il Or POLICE TO THK liMPMIIOH. SlRT, -MAY 7, '.8!-.. At. tiie moment when your Majesty resumed the reins of Government, I'ranee had no other resources for escaping from anauhy than those which were .supplied l>V her own pmper energy. Abuidoued to exiles, wham pi ejudices, vengeance, and other passiony ruled, ihc government no longer allbrded any means of national protection, and was, ia reality, nothing but the instruineut ol a faction. It was the intention to rekindle the adu-s of the camp of .Tales and of I Ven-iee ; Jo rally the remains of the imnrru iinn of llntanny and IS'ounaody; to compress tin- people by terror, and to Iti'iii" them back b\ violence to the luu~ barbm of the i> udal ages. F.very thing was directed to the accomplishment of that propel-. The public treasure wa�-diM.pcitcd in r* ungrateful, or more faithful. Events have jus-fied this foresight. Considered under a general point of view, France presents at present an i,npn�ing spectacle, and the ui:r-t favourable disposition*. She .widvs for peace, but will not -�;. rdieo her tjorv ??nd her independence. She wi-hes� to enjoy now what she wished tor in IJ'Jl-namely, civil-liberty aval a representative? system : but enii^bt- , ened b . experience, she leeks that lho-e blessings | canoul. be guaranteed by a powerful and linn Government. The same as in 1702, she is agitated iu ihe interior bv a party which has lust uothiug of their preteabioui, bat which, liovv*- ever, has no longtr the same power, nor the same influence, am? who are constantly complaining of rigoroca mea-aires used towaiaU them, but who shoubl recollect that they themselves provoke those measures in consequence of their iutri-ucs, their o>pnsition, and their fury. Whence originated those terrible laws which strike at the emigrants, the instirgenrs, and their families ? Was it not fiom necessity, which compelled our national assnubbes to punish crimes, to detect plots, to put a stop to correspondences against which the ordhary laws were deemed insufficient? The lessons of the p st appear to have been lost. Those men whom yon would recall to their country-those mei who are indebted to you for their poli'ical existence, and whose tranquility were assured to them-those men, Sire, whom yam were, ilesirom-t 'luring the first twelve years of vour reign of reci>neihug to the Nation, appear to wish to separate thcmselvcj from her, and to renounce your kindness. Till now the Police of /our Ftr. piro confined itself to watch their ttchtns ; in many places thev were even defended igaiust popular luvy. The Police, which is iustiuted for the good of nil, is not- acquainted with those local hatreds, nor those ei'ors which the Sovereign has overlooked or forgotten. Destined to put a stop to crimes against social order, the Police does not violate principles in taking those fears lor suspicions, and suspicions for acts. Thus you r Police has not made any premature attempts on the personal liberty of those whom it ought to presume in a .-.late of conspiracy against, the public hbeitv. So far trom placing the independence of Writers under any restraint, the Police has recalled into the course of polemical contest those whom sha ne and (ear had driven from it. i'roai this numeration and respect lor the l.nws, immense advantages have been derived in enlightening the [Nation upon the subject of its real dangeis and true interest-., and by weakening, by publicity, the importance which falsehood and calumny derive from ni', "�tcry and privacy, from knowing the very hot-beds, the springs and agents of intrigue, and by siifhrin;r tiu-ui toeui.ap and entangle themselves without ihe trouble ol any extraor-dmarv apparent attention. It is now tune to put an end to the mainc-vres winch arc now practising. Mmii/raUuus are again commencing; corn sp nndences are orei;--!i countries : ( lommil tees are are fomented in the country places. If, on the first appearance of these symptoms in France, the evil had been stopped ; if, in place of being M'ti.-.|'ied with threat^ and following the advice oi a temporising indulgence, the (aovcrn-ment Iiad ma ts ; all must be interested in not propagating such disorders, but. must wish that they are cheeked with a severity, iu order to stop their progress. I do not propose to your Majesty to adopt extraordinary measures, or to exceed the. limits of the i.'on.-.ti-tution. It is now about four months since our Tribunals have punished with transaoriat ion and lout' year.i banishment tho-.e who cried " fire I'Minpnyxr," whilst those who now cry cut. " Vtvi', le /ici" remain unpunished ; that moderation is a sign of strength and power. Put the Tribunals cannot on other matters remain undecided, without failing iu their duty, ami without destroyitc, i hat harmony of intention whicU animates the people and the Government. Already, in seveial provinces of vhauee the purchasers of national propeitv, whose ti-a numbly is not disturbed, have equipped soldiers at. their own (".peace, for the general salety. The youth of liritiinny, for 1 lit* defence of tin1.-throne and their country, have renewed the fed.'-ialive pact of Poutiv v. That generous devo-teduess urn-toot pass by without praise, with'jmt imitators, or without sup'oit. Kvcrv where the [National Guards areorgani � ing ; it is therclorc on!y necessary, in order to inru re tranquility in tin; interior, to enforce ' ,s already exiling, to direct their application, and to pe'imulgate the ai tides of the penal code.
