FRENCH liberty's a farce :

Hath play'd fev'n a£h. First, PhUofupkif Injmts
Nurs'd by Vohaire, and mewling far reform :
Then Tiers-ttat: with fcraos of Rights of Man,
And front rebellions, with monarchic pow'r
Unwillingly combin'd. Then citizen,
Frantic as Hell, with manyaf&e and hymn
To strumpet Goddefles. Jacobins,
Full of strange projefts, bloody as the 'pard,
Jealous of neighb'ring nations, quick in quarrel.
Seeking the bubble, deaf Equality,
Even in the cannon's mouth. Then Regicides,,
In foul convention, drench'd with Louis'blood,
Withred-eapt heads, or heads cut off fans form,
Full of old Rome and modern Guillotine,
And so they play their part. The sixth age fhius
Into a lean, half-familhed horde ofjfaves,
Five kiiavrs their kings, the'r pouches cramm'd with
Their youthful conftiiulion far top free
For their (hi Link fouls; ana the big voice of Freedom
Turning to childilh adulation, courts
A proud Dir-ftory. Last scene of all,
That ends this flrange eventful Revolution,
Is barb'roua anarchy, mere savage lite;
Sans trade, fans laws, fans God, fans every thing.
HIOM A LATE INCIISH PAPZR.
BUONAPARTE'S EXP ED II lON.
Cd" During the present anxiety respeCting
the design of Buonaparte'sexpedition, and
the practicability of the voyage to India,
the following observation on the Mon
soons, extracted from the Bombay Ca
lender must be interesting.
OUR readers will not require to be told, )
that onr year is divided into two grand sea
sons, or as they are called, the South Weft
and North East Monsoons ; that the firft
generally prevails from May to the middle
of September, inclusive, the other during
the remaining months ; yet we must premifc
this as an introduction to what follows :
We need fcrcely to. observe, that during
the South Weft Monsoon, all the ports and
roadfteds on this fide of India deny approach
—so much so that between the 15th of May
and the Ift of September, ships are preclu
ded by their policies from touching upon the
Malabar coast, or from lying in SuratVoads
between the Ift of May and the lit of Sep
tember. Generally speaking the Monsoon
is considered to extend from Dunder-head,
the southern extremity of Ceylon, to the
Persian gulph ; in order to attain which,
they -who (hould fail at this season, would be
obliged to make what is called a fauthern
passage, that is, go firft to the south of the
Equator, before they could (tretch over to
the weft ward , a vayage that would occupy
for Muscat about 40 days, and to Bufforah
about two months ; the fame objection ex
ists Sgainlt failing at this season to ajy part
of the Arabian coast ; as for'the Red Sea,
it is considered in vain to attempt enterjng
it at this feifoo—nor can i( be said to be
favourable to fail now to the cape, the Mau
ius, or any port to the weft ward.
To die Other fide of India <xt*lie-c»ntra
ry, it is now the mtaft advantagrtms period
of departing. From the middle of April
even to the middle of August, a voyage to
Madrafs may be made in about 12 or 15
days ; to Bengal, from 15 to 20 days ;
after this time it becomes excessively tedious
from the necefiity of keeping to the Eas
tern fide of th* bay to avoid the violent wea
ther on the Coromandel coast ; for the fame
reason the south weft Monsoon is eligible to
leave Bombay for any of the ports in the
gulph of Bengal or the straits of Malacca :
hence also it is the season for failing to Chi
na ; after the 20th of August, howevrr,
what is called the direst passage to China
becomes very precarious, with much proba
lity of finding blowing weather in the Chi
With regard to the ports from which
(hips may be expefted to arrive at. Bombay
during this monsoon ; it may be lata down
as a general rule, that'the quarters favora
ble to fail during any season, are those that
it is unfavourable to expeft arrivals from,
and vice versa : hence, from the Persian
Gulph, the Red Sea, the Cape of Good
Hope, and the westward in general, this is
the most seasonable period to expedt arrivals;
from Muscat, a trip may now be made in
10 or 12 days, from Mocha in 20 days,
and Suez in about a month ; it (hould be
remarked, that after September the Red
Sea admits of no egress : (hips consequently
remaining there beyond that time, must
continue there all the north-east moonfon,
and are said to have loft their passage ; on
this account the 25th of August is the
latest day to which our cruisers are allowed
to remain at Suez. From the Cape a pas.
sage may be made in five or fix weeks, from
the Mauritius, in three weeks or a inonth.
The south-west monsoon is also the most
faverable season in which a passage may be
made from Batavia or any ports to the east
ward, through these southern (traits; from
Batavia to Bombay in particular, a passage
may be made in about 35 days. From
Madras and Bengal during the south-west
monsoon, it is necessary to make the south
ern passage in order to'reach Bombay ; this
will require in a passage from Madras, from
30 to 40 days, and from Bengal from 45
to 60 days, frons the necefiity of working
out of the river, and beating down the Bay
to clear Acheen-head ; from the straits of
Malacca it i* in arduous task to fail for
this port, or even to any one in the Penin
sula of Iniia, owing to the difficulty of
wearing round Acheen-head.
We have now to treat of the north-ealt
monsoon, or the season which may be con
sidered as included between the 15th of
August and the 15th of April, in which,
the firft circumstance that occurs to us to
remark, is that our coaik is rendered in a
peculiar manner feaure and favorable to na
vigation ; it is now considered the most eli
gible period for failing to the Persian Gulph,
and irt general to all ports to the westward :
to Muscat the trip is generally 15, and to
Bufforah 28 days. The time suitable for
failing to Mot ha aad Suez, is from the mid
dle pi February to the middle of Match,
when a passage may be nude to tSe firft in
18 days, to the second in 25. If ■» fl»'P he
delayed till the end of March or the
beginning of April, the passage becomes
more tedious, being then obliged to make
th* land to the foufhward of the island of
SoCatra, before the Gulph can be entered,
on account of the southerly winds which
prevail, and a current setting to the north
ward. After the 15th of April, a (hip
bound to the Red Sea would be very likely
to lose her passage.
Between the 15th of August and the 15th
of September, it be considered favoura
ble to fail to Madras and Bengal, but after
this time the season is fufpmdtd. owing to
the setting in of the North-ealt monsoon on
the other fide of India, which closes the
ports on the coast of Coromandel, Golconda,
and Oriffa, between the 15th of OCtober
and the 15th of December, at least this peri
od is excepted in common policies of insu
rance : after this time again a passage may
be made to Madras in 30, and Bengal in
50 days, this season may be deemed unfa
vourable to the coast of Pegue and the straits
of Malacca, but far the straits of Sunda, Ba
tavia, for example, it is the best adapted :
a passage thither may be Dade in 35 days.
With regard to the seasonable imports in
this monsoon, it is at 110 time more advanta
geous than now for coming from the Coro
mandel Coast and in short the whole Bay :
a passage may be made from Madras in 26
days, from Bengal in a month, and Penang
a month. From the Persian Gulph it is no
less favourable, the paffige from Muscat be
ing about !o days j and from Bufforah 28.
The Red Sea is now closed ; nor is it rea
sonable to exprCt arrivals from the Cape or
the Straits of Sunda ; from the latter in par
ticular it isalmoft impoffibleat this season to
make a tolerable paflage.

a great number of Priefti, taken some time
ago by Sir Edward Pellew, in a French
frigate going to Cayenne. She had fold all
her property in France to go to join her un
happy hulband, and had with her about

the 300 PI. and has paid the sailors their share
out of his own purse.

Wcdnefday night, a numerous gin'g of above
100 desperadoes, entered the house of Mri.
Lamb, near Old Bawn and Tallagh, in th«

and every portable article of value it contained.
While the villains were in the house, they ap
peared to be under great apprchenfion, for they
were frequently heard to fay, "Boys, mind the
piquet," which wl suppose was a guard of their
party they Rationed at the outside, to be oJ the
