..T. LONDON. I s.i,7,uR,Dliy, ii,4Y; We have translated from the Monileur offi- cial Documents, winch give a very alarming picturfof the state of the public mind in Trance. We have had complaints in the Paris Papers of apathy in the Depsrtment of the N orln. of the massacre of Prefects, and of the oneniug of private letters.; but the cases were either few, and the evil vaguely described or local. All reserve is however now thrown aside, and the Government speaksout plainly. A Report made by Fouche states, that thure exists a correspondence carried on in concert with foreign agents, throughout 'France, for the purpose of exciting disaffection towards the existing Govertnietit-tbat Secret Com- mittees are forming in the several towns, and various acts pf violence have becti-coinmitted, particularly in the Northern and Western De- partments, Those plans and machinations are now arrived at maturity, and threaten a genera! explosion. Armed bands have made their appearance in the Departments of the Maine and Loire, and the Lower Loire, and various acts of rdreHion are represented to have taken place fu theNorlh. This alarming state of* the country, for the details of which we, refer to the Report, is probably the real cause pf Bonaparle's continuance in Paris so long aftef his approaching departure was an siouncgdjOn th«9Ui lie signed a Decree, reo quiring all Frenchmen in the seryice_of ua, •'••potrrbons to TfctuVn io France^ tiiider :Oerl?Lin. '■'■penalties. a»ic! for ihe'punisbfneut of all per- rons holding correspondence with them,- Trum one of the articles of this' Decree, the tearing Sown of the tri-coloured flag appears to be one of the most prevatent outrages coiu- plained of. A vessel arrived at Newhaven zu Friday from Dieppe, i-Iiieh she left the same morn- ing. "Orders had art ived al Dieppe for all the fisheraien to be drafted for the service of the army. The fishermen immediately roseHT a mass, and refused to be drafted, declaring, -that thev would resist to the last extremity. and that they were all lor Louis the I8th.— On Thursday a body of National. Guards pa- raded the town; and yesterday 2000 troops of the line were expected to compel the fisiier- nV^iv to march. Disturbances were expected. The King of Wurteroberg in a message to liis Slates General, dated the lthof ,April, an- nounces that lie to ravse and main- tain 20,000 troops for the approaching war; and while he calls upon them for extraordi nary supplies, he at the same time states,"that lie has taken every necessary step to obtain a share in the subsidies which may be granted for the general cause of all tile Powers oCEu- Tope", Preparations for the defence of Lyons have been adopted similar to those at Paris, and General Girard, it is said, has made a move- ment in the direction of PiedinctU. Mural's army is represented tuastateofto- 1al disorganization. The Board of Trade at Copenhagen has pub- lished a tiotice., that no ships shall" dear out for Frenpi) ports, imr shall any French vessels be admitted into Danish ports, except under live white flag. This intelligence is contained iii the PapcrsbrougfJt by two Hamburgh Mails arrived'this morning. Private lexers from the Netherlands state, that the British troops expected to march to- wards Mons for the purpose of concentrating, nadpart of the force to be hulled, each officer is obliged to be provided with a tent, a ruat. trass, and a'blanket .1 An Austrkui Paper states, that the Emperor Frartcis1 army no tv consists of 345,000 infantry, 85,000 light infantry, 60,000 cavalry, & 13.000 artillery, distributed into 57 regiments of the line, 78 light/ battalions, 97 regiments of ca- valry, and four of arti-ilery. The Duke of Wellington has desired to have a corps of Ponlooners formed and sent to the army, as from thetlatureof the service in which they are to be engaged in he Low Countries, persons versed in throwing ever he particularly useful. Admiral Lord Keith is appointed to the command of the Channel Fleet, and Sir R. Strachan to be seeond in commands Admiral Sir Benjamin Hallowell, is appointed to the command of the Lis-boti-statioix The arrival of Lucien Bonaparte at Paris, so immediately after the letter which he is under- slood to have written to the house of Messrs. Baring, requesting them to procure a passport for him aud his family to return to England, there to take up their resideir-ce, is at least cu- rious. With what view has he gone to Paris? To accept of the office to which he was said to be appoiiited-or to remonstrate with his bro- ther against his re-ascension of the Imperial Throne ? Nothing of what is passing in France transpires through the Paris Papers. b The ALLIED Arimy.-—Louis XVIII. in his Proclamation to the French nation says, that u 1,200,000 men are marching against the Usurper. As such large numbers give no dis- tinct idea, for no persons ever saw such a multitude at once, it may be well to a few calculations to assist the understanding. At thcaverage step of a soldier on the march, oije step of each makes -600 miles, and will wear put one pair of shoes; so that, if they march 25 miles in one day, they will wear out 50,000 pair of shoes and the whole distance travelled wlil be thirty millions of miles, or equal to twelve hundred times round tite-lobe of theearth at theequatorl If the whole of the armies were drawn ul) in a single line, al- Jowing-two feet to each man, the- line would extend from London to Edinburgh! If any el persons think this is a puerile way of calcula- tioii,, let-lhciti remember that astronomers, by way of giving an idea of the immense distance «f the Iksaveuly bodies, tell us how long a raunoii. ball would be of passing to one of them, at a given velocity. Those astrono- t- y mer know, that to speak of great numbers in the abstract, gives nodistiuct or corresponding idea. To a million of minutes, for example, we tix no accurate idea and when reduced to monthsjt becomes accurate* When we say that the French Revolution has cost England one thousand millions of guineas, we affix no proper idea to that sum but when we are told that the money would build five hundred churches like St. Paul's, or purchase half the lauds of the kingdom, or build ten cities, each as large as London, we begin to form some idea of the obligation we owe to the French, t) DECLARATION OF LOUIS XVIII, Louis, by the Grace of God, King of France and anHr-To all our subjects, greeting— France, free and respected, was enjoying, by on care/the peace and prosperity which had been restored to it, when the escape of Napoleon Bonaparte, from the Islatid-of Elba and his éÍp- pearance on the French territory, seduced to re- volt the greatest part of the army. Supported by this illegal force, lie has made usurpation and tyranny succeed to the equitable empire of the laws. The efforts and the indignation-of our subjects, the majesty of the throne, and that of the na- tional representation, have yielded to the vio- lence of a mutinous soldiery, whom treacherous and perjured leaders hitve seduced by deceitful hopes. This criminal success having excited in Europe just alarms, formidable armies have been put in march towards France, and all the Powers have decreed the destruction of the tyrant.

IMPERIAL DECREES. Report 'of the- Minister of General Police to his Majesty the Emperor. Paris, May 7,-1815. Si-itr--At the moment your Majesty had re- sumed the reins of Government, France had no means of escaping anarchy, but the resources of her own energy. Abandoned to the deserters, whom prejudices, vengeance, and passion ruled, the Government was no longer the nieaps of na- tional protection, but the instrument of a faction They wished to rekindle the ashes of the plain of Jales, and of La Vendee, to rally the remains of the insurrection of Briianny and of Normandy, to repress the people by terror, aad to bring them back hy violence to the barbarism of the feudal ages. Every thing was directed towards the accomplishment of thip object. Treasure was sqjiamlered in recompence forcriminatdevo- tiojw, and for services which the country either did not know or disavowed, Employments, pensions, and honours were tavished on obscure individuals Oppressed by the public hatred, and blasted in reputation, while writers, even the ministers of religion alarmed timid consciences, shook the system of property, and attacked the laws which the head of the church bad made it their duty to respect. This violation of social order, this contempt of common morality, this forgetfulness of the principles of the most simple policy, ought to have c<i used a general insurrection: it was immi- nent it proceeded to involve the destruction of the imprudent andpresumptaolls men who pro- voked it. They once more owe to you their safety. I wOl ijot rep-eat the prodigious effects of the harmony of the people and of the army all the population of the East pressing around your steps; all theattempts of civil war baffled in the West and in, the South the royal force dissolv- ed, disatmed, and dissipated without resistance and in the space of a few days the people re- stored- tp~their rights, ]their enemies reduced to silence, tranquillity every where re-established. It wa*not, however, natural to suppose that all thejeeds of discord were entirely destroyed that so many pcopie ctftf'd' see their hopes dis- appointed-without feeling some regret that the privileged persons, with whom royalty had sur- rounded itself, could support their dismissal withoutmnrmurs; that men united for above a year by sccret enrolments, excited to disorder by distributions aud promises of money, should, all at once, return to the habits of peaceful life, and that finally those who had already violated the faith of several amnesties, should now prove' themselves less ungrateful or more faithful. Events have justified this-foresight. Considered in a general point of view, France presents an imposing spectacle and the most fa- vourable dispositions. She wishes for peace. hut she will not sacrifice her glory^ and ber in- dependence. She wishes, as in 1792, to enjoy civil liberty and all the advantages of at repre- sentative government; but, enlightened by ex- perience, she feels that this enjoyment cannot he assured to her, except by a powerful and firm government. As in 1792, she is internaHy agi- tated by a party which has relinquished none of its pretensions, but which has neither the same strength nor the same influence which is inces- saiitly complainiiig of the rigour of which it has been the object, but ought to recollect that it provoked them by its intrigues, its relsistaugel,) and its fury. Whence,, lu fact, sprung' tliosc terrible laws levelled against the Emigrants, the Insurgents, and their faittilic-, ? Was it iiot,from the neces- sity under which the National Assembiies tound themselves to punish improper attempts, to put a stop to plots, to break off correspondence, against which the ordinary laws were insufficient? The lessons of the past seem to have been thrown away. The men to whom you wished to restorft a country, who owe to you the political state and the repose which have been assured to them-these men, Sire, whom your JMajesfy en- deavoured during the first twelve years of your reign to reconcile with the nation, seem to have been determined on separating themselves from it,, and renouncing your favours. Hitherto the poiice of your Empire has con- fined itself to watching t heir motions in several places it has been obliged to protect them from the popular resentment. The police, instituted for the benqfit ofall^knows no local antipathies, nor the faults which the Prince has forgotten.— Destined to repress the attacks made on social order, it does not violate principles by taking its fedrs as suspicions, and its suspicions as facts. It has not therefore prematurely attacked the individual liberty of those whom it conlduut but presuine to be iu conspiracy against, the public liberty. So far from Jettehug the independence of writers, it has recalled into the polemical ca- reer those whom -shame and -fear had removed from it. It has derived from this moderation, and from its respect for the laws, the. immense and from its respect for the laws, the. immense advantage ofenlightening the nation on the sub- ject of its real Haulers aud its true interests of diminishing, fry- publicity, the importance #hich falsehood ami calumny gain. from mysiery and s.e.CfCsy r-ofaw] airing a knewliidge ofthe focusfes, the. springs, (fie agents, of the intrigues, and suffering them to frame and .hatch their plots unrestrained byfany perceptible .vigilance. Now, however, it is time to pllt a stop to the 'machinations that are' practising. Emigrations are beginning; a sccret correspondence is estab- lished abroad and organised at home; commit- tees are forming in the townsV and endeavours ape used to spread aWirm over the country.. If, when suqllsymptoms are manifested for the first time in France, the evil had been stifled in its birth if instead of confining itself to threats, and following the dictates of a lingering indul- gence,the government bademployedallthe power with which it is invested, the country would not 1avebeen hurried on to the brink of the abyss, it would not have had to deplore the violent mea-" sures to which the governments of those oays were forced to have recourse, and which the iin- portanoe of circumstances coutd scarcely justify. For the rest, real disorders seem to be the re- sult of the Bianosuvres which are observed. In one commune of the Department of thoGard an assembiage of persons have for a moment hoisted the white flag. Some armed bands hjive appeared in the Departments of Maine and Loire, and the Lower Loire. In the Calvados women have torn the tri-co- loured flag of a Commune. Seditions cries have been raised.; some acts of rebellion have taken place in the Department of the North. In that of the Gotes du Nerd a Mayor has been massacre*! by two old Chouans. These crimes fill the places where they are, committed with alarm. I know that they are connected with the endeavours that have been made for a yc:¡,r past, to revive revolutionary animosities, and rekindle civil war. They do not depend exclusively on the political change which lias-jtfit-beeii L*ffeef,ed without impediment; they do not threaten the safety of -ti)& Stiite they do not even characterise a party subsisting and formed., Certainly those who attack property and per- petrate assassination, those who break all the bonds which unite them to France, and devote her to the sword of foreigners and domestic dis- cord—those men have in them nothing French. They may follow the opinions and second the wishes of some accomplices; but they have no partisans. All good men, all the friends or oraer and peace, whatever may he their political views, p all detest of such acts they have all an interest that, such disorders should not spread, and they wish that they may be repressed with a severity capable of putting a stop to them. I do not propose to your Majesty to take ex- traordinary measures, or to exceed the bounds of the constitutional power. Some months since the tribunals punished shouts of Pille f Empereurwith transporta- tion arid-four years banishment; those of I. Vive le Roil" are now not prosecuted or punished only by measures of mere police this modera. tion is the sign of power.- But the tribunals can- not, upon other points, remain undecided and un- certain, without failing in theirduty, and without destroying that concert of intentions which ani- mates the, people and the Government. Already in several Communes of France have the purchasers of national domains, whose tran- quillity is not threatened, provided soldiers, armed at their expense, for the safety of all. The Breton youth have renewed the federative compact of Pontivy in defence of the throne and country. This generous devotion cannot remain without praise, without imitation and without support. The National Guards are every where organiz- ing. To secure the lower orders, there is no need, therefore, of any thing more than to tail forth the existing laws; to determine'their application, and to make public their penal dispositions. Such is the object of the projet of decree which I have the honour to submit to your Majesty. (Signed) The Duke of Otranto."
MAJOR-GENERAL SIR ROBERT ROLLO GLLLESPIE, ICG.H. Private letters just received from Bengal, af- ford some particufars of the unsuccessful attach on,Katunga,.by a part of that division of the Bengal army uuder Major Gen. Sir Xtobt. Rollo Gillespie. Kalunga is a formidable fortress, with lofty stone walls, commanding the pass northward opt of the Dey rah Doon,which is situated at the bead of the Doaub, and bounded on the north by the commencement of that mass of hills which ex tend to the Thibet Mountains, or snowy range of flimm-alya ;—on the sonth by that range of hills which rise from the termination of our provinces uorth of Jettatirtinl)oor -to the east by the Ganges, and westward, by the Jamna. The southern passes into this Doon, or valley, were taken possession of on the 22d and 23d of Oct. by a detachment under Col. Mawbey, who having reconnoitred Kalunga, reported an attack on it to be impracticable with the means he possessed. General Gillespie immediately ordered up rein- forcements and artillery, and proceeded himself to Deyrah,assumed the command of this advanced corps. It moved from Deyrah on the morning of the 30th, and took up a position within three miles of the fort, the nearest ground on which it could be encamped. In the afternoon, the re- serve and one column were pushed on to occupy a sort of table-land, distant 600 yards from one. face of the fort, but about 400 feet below its level. This movement was executed, under a heavy but wild and ill-directed fire from the place, and from the match-locks on their flanks. The enemy kept up this fire all night, whilst batteries were throwing up; intd whlctf six guns and four mortars (having been brought up by elephants) were placed by day-light next mold- ing. With these a sharp cannonade was kept up till eight o'clock, when a body of the enemy dashed out to attempt to turn their flank, but were kept in rheck by the well served fire of two howitzers, until they coutd be advantageously charged, when they were driven from their com- manding position at the point of the bayonet.— Every thing was at this time ready for the as- sault,- three other columns having been posted during the night, in order to make a simultane- ous movement on the other feces. The signal, gun was fired, and the storming parties from the GeneraTs column rushed on to the attack", unfor- tunately alone, the other columns not having heard- thesignal.. They carried a stockade, which pro- tected thp toot of the walls at some distance, but were soon compelled to fall back, after making every effort to escalade. At half past ten, the General himself led on a reinforcement, covered by a couple of six pounders. All that the most determined valour and perseverance could at- tempt was (alas!) ineffectual; such was the tre. mendous and destructive fire kept upon them froijaartillery, match-locks, and every imaginable missile .we^qn. Again, they tried, but with no better success: and it was while striving to ani- mate the troops by jhis own heroic and admirable example, to yet a fresli, attempt, while waving his h^on his g.woTd, and cheering them on, that he was shot througU. the heart. Thus has his country been deprived-of the services of one of '.JtlJQSSiii^d able Generals^nd.his nume- rous friends (i'tir no soldier became acquainted with him but wa's- instdrjtlv his friend") Ditist v-on- I tinue to mourn his premature fate, so ong. as ex- atted hpno^i^flexible integrity, and those finer qualities which endear in private life, shall be valued and approved. The o/Bcial dispatches relating to this unhappy, event, found his Lordship, the Governor General, at Luckiiovv, on his way into Rohilcund, and were carried (notwithstanding two wounds received in the attack of the 3lst) by the tate General's Aid de Camp, Captain fryers,, whom his Lordship, with his wonted military feeling, immediately placed oil his own personal staff. The resistance met at Kalunga was of the most determined kind, and the fortress itself might, it would appear, with a smaller force than that which defended it, have, from its extraordinary natural strength, defied any sudden attack, how- ever ably and gallantly executed. The chances of success, however, in this case, seemed almost annihilated, when the intended plan of a com- bined attack upon four points, was so unhappily frustrated—and at last limited to one. Failure against such an enemy, being in general produc- tive of the most injurious moral effects, this la- mented hero felt the imperious necessity of striv- ing for success to the last.

LONDON, MONDAY, MAY lb. At a late hour this morning a Mail from el Flanders arrived with Papers atid-Lellcrs from the Netherlands to. the 13lh inst. They have brought further official accounts of the suc- cessful progress of the Austrians in Italy.- General Bianchi was at Cortona on the 251h, ,and expected to be at Foligno on the 28tli.- Murat has sued for an armislice which has been refused. The Duke of Wellington was at Brussels on the 11 ill* The official Journal of Louis XVIII. says, that Sachet has had disputes with the Com- missioner ltcedercr at Lyotis that St. Cn and Oiiditiot are strictly watched, and that Ney has been banished. A coufier has brought dispalclies to Vienna from General Baron Frimont, dated the 26ih of April, of which the following is the sub- stance Cotitit Neiltl)erg executed in so masterly a manner llie atlnck upou-the Eoueo on the 20th, which'has already been spolttiii olj- Major CPirquet advanced towards S,teiiatuo with Finner'a yagers, forced the bridge with the yagers and a detachment of Tuscan dragoons, and Captain Harrucker pe- netrated itito the town, and by his brisk attack threw the enemy's detachments, which were much stronger, into confusion, and caused them a great loss in killed aud wounded, arid took 300 prisoners, among whom is a Captain of the General Staff. Our loss is 1 killed and 47 wounded. The enemy having so stid-deti ly abandoned, without wailing for our attack, his strong position on the Savio, which: he occupied on the 22d, with about 20,000 men, retiredto Rimini, and had on the 24th his rear near Saergnano. Field-Marshal Bianchi was with his main body at Cortona on the 25th, and expected to be at Foliguo on the 28lli.— King Joachim has again attempted to open a uegociation, but his overtures have been re- je'cttfd'Hiie the preceding ones, 'I ;f Report# prcTailed at Dover yesterday, fhat Valenciennes had declared for Louis XVIII. that Lisle was equally well disposed. -Are these the acts of rebellion in the department of the North alluded to by Fouche i" Two officers landed at Dover, from Bourdeaux, wilh acconnts of the disturbances that have broken out there. Two French Officers have arrived at Plymouth from Vannes, in the de. partment of Morbihan. They are understood to bring accounts ofthe risings in the West in favour of Louis XVIII. Desertions from Dunkirk and all the Northern frontiers are froquent and numerous. ThereportoftheMaitterofPonce.Fouche, of whic]Lwe have given a sketch, gives the lie to all the former assertions of the rebel Government, that the Bourbons were no where popular; and that the return of Bona- parte was the wish of the people. If- is^me of the most important documents tfiat has been published, both as-to the matter it con- tains, and the time at NviiiciLit has been made public. The Allies have convincing proofs of the disaffection of the inferior they read in it assurances that their aid will be acceptable ftolherlcople and they have these facts ma do known to them just as they are on the point ofcomtaencing active operations. Upon the whole we derive the greatest sa- tisfaction froirt this Report, because we vievr it iis a confession of the rapidly growing dis- affection of the people towards the rebel Go- verntpent. Their deliverers if they cliuse to make them so, are approaching, and as war is solely against Bonaparte and his faction, let but the people take a decided and imme- diate part against them, and peace may be restored in as short a time almost as Bona- parte marched -I:r-o-ni-tli-e-con st to the canital. Soult has been appointed Bonaparte's Major General. The elections at Paris seem to dis- please Bonaparte. The Papers complain tbat lawyers form the great majority. The Duke of Welliogtonhas thought it necessary to rein iii the fiery impetuositv of the troops under his ctmimand, by a strict pro- hibihon against their entering the French territory before everything is ready for the great united effort. The preparations are on all sides immense. Ostend Is so. considerable a depot of arms apd stores, that it resembles Woolwich Warreu. The Belgian army is fixed at forty hattationsofinfamty, sight regiments of cavalry, and stxhaitaiions of artillery. The smaller German powers have engaged to keep on foot the same, or.eveu greater num- bers than they did in the glorious campaign of last year. At Vienna the Landwehr mount guard, the regutar regiments being all gone to the armies, The Prussians are pressing for- ward with the greatest eagerness from atf parts. The advance of the Swedes has bee a formally notified. The Russians are in itittve, roent in prodigious numbers. Thirty thou- sand of theni are to join the Avistrian army i» Italy. In that quarter the face of the cam- paign appears almost decided. Mural, put of about 48,000, which formed the whofe of his army, is said to have lost 15,000, and Ie.- be pressed on all sides with the remainder, who are in jt state, of great disorganization. He had convoked a sort of Italian Chainp de Mat for the 28th inst. at Rome but the Austrians are said to lvave entered that city and the ceremony is of course deferred ad Grceeas Calendas. 'JI'
