The Brussels papers of the 29th ult. contain the following document t BNVSSELS, June 28. Official—War Department. "Order of the Day to the Army. l'" 1UC ifllnlster of War, in consequence oi trie numerous applications, which have been made to him, thinks it necessary to inform the army, th.u the government has not authorised either the levy or the formation of auxiliary corps, destined to serve out of the kingdom and that in consequence he has had no occasion to decide on any kind of licence to be granted for this purpose to the general or supe- rior officers, whose names have been mentioned in the journals. The officers will, therefore, refrain from making applications to the War Department, with a view to obtain permission to serve in these pretended corps, which never existed except in the public journals, by which this statement has been promulgated, without its civer having had the smallest foundation. The Minister of War, (Signed) BARON EVAIV. Brussels, June 2D." It would appear from this that King Leopold does not approve of the officers of his army hiring themselves as mercenaries, and exposing to de- struction his people in a cause in which Belgium is in no wise interested. The Whigs might take a lesson from the King of the Belgians. ::J I aiis. The following extract from a decree la!ely issued by Don Carlos is especially recommended to the notice of Col. Evans, and respectable band of emi- grant coster-mongers from the purlieus, ofWestminster, and the scum of the surrounding workhouses. I order and decree as follows :— -1 Article J. All strangers, without distinction of rank or s;rade, who shall take up arms against my legitimate rights, or who shall serve, by any means whatsoever, the rebel army of the usurpation, shall be deprived of the benefits of existing laws, nor shall they be considered as included in the convention for the exchange of prisoner?,' signed by my authority by my Commanderi-n-Chief, at Asarta, on the 28th of April last. Art. 2. All strangeis above noticed who shall fall into our hands shall, atter time being vivezi them to perform their religious dutie?, be instantly shot." We are fully aware tnat it is essentially necessary that 99 of every 100 of those who are trying to escape what they may deem a worse fate by accompanying the gal- lant Colonel, should travel for the good of their country," and that it would be a pity to baulk them in the execution of a plan so truly patriotic—but it is only fair to let them go with their eyes open. The gallant Colonel says he ,has led six forlorn hopes. He seems ambitious of a seventh. Every man has his taste. The brave band now drink hard, if they can, and talk largely. They do not now admit their pe- culiar qualifications for such a service, but iilci boca de la canon lo hace confessor."
