LETTER FROM COUNT ZAMOYSKI. General Zarnoyski, an eminent member of the Polish emigration, on the subject of the attempted assassination of the Czar, has sent the following letter to the Paris journals The attempt announced on Thursday by the Moniteur has caused, as may easily be believed, a deep emotion amongst my fellow-countrymen. Several of them have expressed to me their desire, in the absence of Prince Czartoryski, to see me proclaim without delay the sorrow and deep indignation with which the deed has inspired us. Allow me, for that purpose, to have recourse to your kindness. The past history of Poland shows-and it is one of our glories-ttiat a crime of this nature has never been produoed in our country, notwithstanding the political convulsions of which it has often been the theatre. I do not hesitate to affirm that at tlrs day the senseless act of a man, said to be a Pole, will meet with unanimous reproba- tion throughout all Poland. The barbarous treatment to which our country is subjected has, indeed, in the last trials, driven some weak minds int o a state of culpable exasperation, To acknowledge this fact is the more pitinful that these aberrations are incontestable the fruit of the assiduous attention paid to the education of our youth by a Govern- ment which knows no scruple. However that may be, a Pole, worthy of the name, never despairs of Providence, and we expect everything from the justice and mercy of God. It is enough to say that we are resolved to remain invariably faitl) u to the duties of the Christian faith, to our nwst glorious traditions, to whatever is commanded by the dearest Interests of Poland, and. above all, to the obligation! imposed by the hospita'ity so generously accorded to us 1.1) Frauce.-General Zamoyski.
