The D.irbi-ts continue their ravages in the department of the'maritime Alps ; they are protected by the Koyalifts, and niaiT.icre the republicans. In the fifing of the " Legislative Com mission of the Council of Ancier.ts," on the 24th, November, the central ad'nini(lr>tions of Yenne and Ch 11 rente, the judges of the civil tribunal ofKieur and Olfe, the citizens ot the comiruce of Laon, felicitated the commiflion on the triumph of Buonaparte. The commiflion approved the resolution of yrfterday, which opens to the minister of the nterior a credit of eight millions. It is a mistake that General Champoinet '1 ready on his return to s.

They speak-also as a Constitutional ju ry which (hall pronounce in a supreme man ner upon all difputcs relating to the Confti tutiou ; they flill speak of counsellors ol slate, of the introduftion of rainifters intc the Legislative body, of the neceflity of ha ving a certain -revenue to be eligible to ei privilege of voting ; they speak of causing the conftitutioH to be received by the people without prelenting it to the Legidative Bo dy ; they speak after this of dissolving the pre lent councils in order to tlhblilh councils conformable to the new conflitution.

La ft evening, was performed to a very fafhionable audience, another new thingfrom the 1- acious pen of the old lilummatus. As the Play B.lli told us that the produc tion had been revised, and adapted to tne American stage, we expected to have tound it pruned at least of cosny highly exception able pnrts which nevertheless were all repeat ! e d. Indeed, it is difficult to diicern any ap pearance of what we hope mull yet be deem ed an adaptation to the American stage. A scantling of the Ftench Revolution is, in deed, introduced, in that scene where a rab ble of foveieign citizens is afiembled, tor the ptirpofe of murdering the Governor, and a "little Child, mid where their orators ha rangue them from the head et hogftiead. If it is meant that this part of the buiinefs fliould be considered as adapted to the Ame rican stage and of course ht-ld up lor an ex ample. then, I think they had better given us the play as it came from the hands of Kot zebue, without insulting us with this xilapta i lion. The piece is ?rouded with inveftive against Priests, with the crimes of nobility, and common place declamation against War ; and is as highly fraught with the tenets of the School of Weifh»upt as any proamnion that has heietofore invaded us from this vile source. TALEYRAND. Citizen Talleyrand has lately diiplayed at Paris, trait of duplicity and fnrjfe. On the 23d, there appeared in a journal, under the immediate direftion of 1 alhyrand, the following paragraph and letter : " Citizen Talleyrand, sincerely affli&ed at finding the name of citizen Joiry inclu ded in the lilt of those who were affefted by the decree of th« 26th Bruraaite, has just written to the minilter of the police a letter which breathes the purest and mod delicate sentiment." Of Citizen Talleyrand, to the Minister of the " I hnvt read, Citizen Minister, with much anxiety, the name of Jorry in the lift of those sentenced to banifhraent. Jor ry is a very young man, whose errors are more entitled to indulgence, than deserving of rigourous treatment. He is now in the service of the republic in the army oi Italy. Perhaps evan at this moment, when the operation of the law extends to him, it is anticipated by the blow of the enemy. Per haps his name is honoured by the wounds he may have received, or by a patriotic death. "It is encumbent on me to add, that Jsrry having, as far as I know, offended none but myfelf, I think I have peculiar right to offer these observations to your notice ; and, I confefs, that feeling the ut most desire to have the offence forgotten by all the world, as it is by me, I shall receive as a personal favour the exception which I now solicit, and which I entreat you to re quell of the Consuls of the republic. This letter, which bears every mark of candour, was written when Talleyrand was acquainted with the death of of Jorry ! ! 1 NEW-YORK, February 19. Capt. Fitch of the brig Two Sifters, from Savannah, came up to town lad evening in a pilot boat. He informs thtt the Ihip Shep herdefj,-Rogers, from that port is below ; also the brig Appollo, Burnham, and brig Elua, Swain, from Savannah, are below, within the Hook, and the brig John, Hender fon, from Cork, in 60 days.
