February 11, 1820. This day are published, APOLEON'S MEMOIRS, bv FILMSELF. The FRENCH EDITION, 12b. The ENGLISH EDITION. lOs. 6d. *t* This NINTH nook of the Great Work of Na-puleuii is published "the first, on nncouiit of its tefuporary interest, os relating to the Return from Elba, the Battle of Waterloo, aud the subsequent events. , The EIGHTH and SEVENTH BOOKS are in course of Translation, and will appear in French'and English, in corresponding size, type, &c witbtlie NINTH BOOK. To Ihe Ninth Book has been addersiar6"nV^'IfBtrtiiT al^ftnlrfcely that 1 should have remember.d Ihe commtinlcation you made me the year before ; but, that I should have acquiesced in, or referred to a compromise which 1 utver made, is utterly impassible. Neither in his Majesty's letter lo me, nor in Ihe correspondence with Mr. Addingtun (of which you may not be fully informed), is there one word, nor the most distant allusion to.the conditions slated in your letter; and even if I had accepted the command of a regiment on such terras, my acquiescence cunld only have relation to the ordinary silHation of the country, and not to a case so completely nut of all contemplation at tlwt time, ns the prubable or projected invasion of this kingdom by a foreign force, sufficient to bring its safely into question. When the King is pleased lo tell me, That should the enemy land, he shall think it bis duty to set an example in defence of the country:" Ihat is, to expose tiie only life which, for the public welfare, ouglrt not tu be hazarded; I respect and admire the principle which dictales that resolution; and as my heart glows with the same sentiments, I wish to partake in Ihe same danger, that is, witb dignity and effect. Whenever his Majesty appears as King, he zcts and commands; you are Comman. der-in Chief; others of my family arc high in military station ; aud even hy the last brevet, a cousiilerable number of junior llfKcers are put over me. In all these orraugemenls, the Prince of Wales alone, whose interest iu the event yields to none but that of tlie King, is disregarded, omitted ; hir services rejeclrd. So that, in fact, be has no post or slalion whatsoever, in a contest on which the fate of the Crown and the kingdom may depend, I ilo not, toy dear brother, wonder tbnt in the hurry of your present orciipation, these cuiibiderations shtiuld have been overlooked. They are now in your view, and i think cannot make a due impression. As lo the rest, with every degree of esteem.possible for your judgment uf what is due to a soldier's, honour, I must be iho guardian of mine tQi^he utmost of my power, &c. '&c. ^ (Signed) G. P. His Royal Highness the Duke,^f York. Horse-G De.4R BroTreir-I have ibi.s in town, found your letter, and lose that part of it, which it appears to me clearly uiiderstood. Indeed, my dear brother, you must give me I-peat to you, that upon the fullest consideration, recollect your having yourself told me at Carlton H Ihe year 1793, on the day on which you was informed his Majesty having.aoqiiiesced in yodr request of being appointed to Ihe cummand of the lOth.rejjimeut of light, dragoons,. of which, Sir William pitt. ivas thf:u Colonel, the luesBage.and condition which was deliv'ered 10 you from his .Majesty; and which his Maiesty repeated to me," iu the year 1795, as ineiittiiiie" I have the. fullest reai whom at thai time yi nor have 1 Iheleasti to me, when I licli My dear Bro^^r-By mj| the 6ih instant, t^SnTioiHa" of the second, wc have ti\ liqv auifii aiopjfe Which 1* pose.

Urging funher my more iaipurtant friainfts upoii Government would be vainly addressed lo auy person, who can really ihiok (hat a former itfusal of mere rank, under circumstances so widely difTrreiit, or the most express waving of such pretensions, if thai bail hecu the case, fiiruislica the slightcit colour for the answer I have received 10 the tenders 1 have now made of my services.

(Kigned) G. P. To his Royal Highness the Dute of York;. Horse Guards, October 13, 1803. Dear Brotiif.r-I hare nceived your Idler ihis morning, and am sorry to finil that you think that 1 have misconceived the ineauing of your first letter, the whole tenor nf wfateh, and the military promotion which give rise lo it, led me naturally to suppose your dtp ire was, that I should apply to his .Majesty in my uiBeial capacity, lo give you military rank, to which ini.ght be ailached the idea uf subsequent contmnnd. That I fuund myself nnder the necessity of declining, in obedience 10 his Majesty's pointed orders, as I explained to you in my lettur of tbe 61b inslnnl. But from your letter of to-day, 1 am to uuderstaud that your object is not military rank, but ihat a post should be allotted to you, upon zho preaeut emergency, suitable to your situation iu the stale. This I-conceive to bv purely n political consideration, and as sueb totally out of wy dupaitmeut; nud as 1 bare must carefully avoided, ut alt liincc, and under all circumstances, ever interfering in any political points, 1 most hope that you will not csll upon lae to deviate from the princiiUes by which 1 have been invariably guverufd. Believe me, my ilear Brother, Your most aH^.-clionate Brother, (Mgiied) FREDERICK. His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales. Carltun-IIousc, Oclober 14^1803. Mr dear Brother-It rauuot but be painful to me to be reduced lo the necessity of lurther explanation on a sub-jf-ct wbioli it was my earnest wi~h to have closed, and which wns of so clear and ^listi.'ict a iifilure as, in my bumble judg-mcut, tu have precluded the possibility of either doubt or misunderstanding. Surely there must some sirange fatality obscure my lang�age in statement, or leave me somewhat deficient in the powers of explanaliuo, when it can lead your mind, my dear brother, lo such a palpable misconstructiou (for far ije il from me tu fancy il wilful) of my nieaniug, as lo suppose for a moment 1 had unconnected my object with efficient miUtttriirank,:inA ua-.i.sferied it entirely to tiie view of a political atution, when you venture to tell me, " my object is not military rank, hut that a post should be allot-led 10 me, upon the prcsenf emergency, suitable to my si-lualtou in the Stale." Upon v.-tial grouud you hazard such OK aisertiun, or upon piii.eipUs you can draw such an lufeicnce, I am utterly at a 1 jss to dctcrraine. For 1 defy the most skilful logician, iu torturing Uie English language, lo a|iply with fairnats surh n cons'.ruBtion lo any word or phrase of mine, rontaine.! i!i any one uf the i,Iters 1 have ever written on this, to me, most interesting subject.
