Second Trial of LOUIS CAPET.
£ Tranflatedfrom a French Paper, j [Continued from our last—and concluded / LOUTS CAPET then set forward or fiis joupny, and after some hours : travelling'. anived at the judgment feat o: Minos. He trembled at tH£ Item afpedl of the Judge and his affillants. " Terri ble will be ny fa'e (said he) if lam fen tenced to punifhme t for those peccadil oes which were thought mrre matter o mer imejit at Paris, before the revolution But I will take courage, and (how him th WILL, which my father confefToi was si kin ! as to make for me ; and I am sure /hall soon geti nto his graces." Having thus fpoke,hethru(l himfelf int( a or iwd of ghoft3 that environed the ba of Minos. The judge d fpatched then with a much hade as if he had been wel paid for it : Some went away fad and de jedted, others felicitated themselves on thfii ientence. Capet's turn came at last, ani Minos, with an air not over courteous, or dcre(3 him to place himfelf in the bar.— Ghojl- Do you know that I am a king ? — Minot—lndeed ! so much the worse foi you, then—begin with obeying my orders £H-:re the dead man looked about !iim ir that listless manner he was wont to do ir his life-time, but feeing no guards at hi: elbow to revenge the mortification, he pla ced himfelf in the bar without making re piy, and on the fame feat which but a few minutes betr.e accommodated the fhoe blocks of the Portt-Neuf, and the c®ok wench of hi., Valet de Chambre, Clery." Minos—Your name Sir ?—Ghojl—Loui: Capet.—Minos—Your quality ?—Ghojl— Alas ! for a long time part I have been o] no consequence nor quality ; but time has been that I was king of the French.— Minns—What, Louis the lad ? are you the roan that opposed the jutl laws of nature, and refe ved for yourfelf only, and youi favorites, the rights which the intended equally for all men ?—Ghojl—This is al falfhood and slander: When I saw tht feop.e prefied down into the dust by the immense weight of taxes, I, ot my owr mere motion and good will, convoked tht States General, in order to give them al the juflice that was their due ; and so triu is what I fay, that from this circumlUnct I was univerfa'ly called the rellorer o: French liberty.— /I inot—That may bt true ; but when tiefe fame States Genera had afleml led and issued their firtl decree, which ir. :ome measure avenged the affroni to nature, (he had so long experienced frorr you, and your brethren in villainy ; fron the effedt of that decree you began tc perceive that reason had made more pro grefs in the world than you had expected and you immediately set about nipping tl« infant bud of liberty, in order to fupporl your prerogatives of pride and cruelty You fjrrounded the National Affembh with hired guards, whom you paid and in flru&ed to your wish Humble remon fir nces were made against this ast of def potifm ; your answers were uniforml) cruel and equivocal, and yon imputed tc tie disorderly spirit of the Parisians, ar effedt proceeding only from your ftrugglt for the recovery of despotic power. It wai then that your people for the firfl time, fh iok off tiie yoke of opprefiion, and madt their great effort for liberty, in overthrow ing and erasing f om its foundations, thai detffla'.le monument which, alone, con demns yon, known by the name of th< Ballille. When you saw your design de seated, yon inllantly adted the fpanicl, and did every thing in your power to calm down that resentment of which you hac Ik-atly become the victim. You afFedted e chai after of popularity—and (pi'y indeec that you could) you found forgiving friends who received you in their arms and covered you from vengeance with theii own bodies. How did you requite them: Accustomed to abuse your authority, what you had been entrusted with you threw into t e scale cf defpojifm ; you confirmed personal servitude, feudality, tythes, &c. The declaration of rights, and all othei public aels that had the freedom and hap piness of the people for their objedt, were rendered fruit'efs by your treasons, and your benefadtors soon repented of con fiding power in your hands of which yoii were utterly unworthy. I will not men tion your drunken frolics, nor the nodtur nal reve's of your wife, whom you fliould have put Into close confinement after the affair of the neet lace, a piece of villainy that comp'etely debased her in the eyes of al nations. Neither will I bring into view all her adve/iturt s of gallantry, the notorie ty of which rendered you b >th objects ol national contempt. I well know that for a long time the throne of France has beer occupied by cuckolds & whore-mallers; but ■ill this is foreign to your preferit lituation. i. will nt mention the criminal correfpon ience you held with contemptible legifia iors, with your brothers., your md your al ies. I will only speak of what ilrittly regards yourfel-, or is nearly con netted with your own history. How wil! you clear yourfelf of the black treachery as your flight from the kingdom, of which you had every reason to fear a dilcovery : You endeavoured to avoid suspicion, tc gain anew the confidence of the people, alwa. s too ready to grant it, altho'yon only meant to break your oath, and thereby put yourfelf at the head of tt>e armies oi you' accomplices, to re enter France and to enslave a second time men who wereo yerloading you with caresses and tender, ness. You were arretted at Varennes. L you had died then, Capet, your people would havefti 1 mourned for you,would have pardoned your weakness, & have pronoun :ed it the lad effort of expiring royalty —Your memory wouldthen have been lony dear upon earth, and at your death the jatesofElyfium would have opened to yoi: without much difficulty — But this was nol your fate—like a mean coward, you fuf fercd yourfelf to be re conducted to Paris where your entrance was the signal so: blood and carnage. You then thought o; nothing but a coalition of the tyrants oi :he north, and at the very instant too wher your fubjetts were still so affectionate as tc :ake pi afure in feeing you, and providing or you. fafety. I will pass over a multi :udeof facts, which are but one tissue r : reachery, that I may -tlend only to thofi eading charges on which I am to founc iiv sentence. Let us pass to the fatal Tent! Df Aitgutl- Well may you tremble This country resounds with the cries o ts vi&ims You are mute —it is enougl —Ghojl—But observe, Mr. Charon, tha ny repentance basfome merit ; and tha 1 did repent,is clear from my last Will ant Testament.—Minos— Hold! no more o ;hat—how dare you mention to me tha' wretched capuchin sermon, which ever your brethren nd adherents are afhamet of. Capet, you are a notorious rogue, bu I confefs you have Tome cause of excuse You were habituated from your infancy t( hear all your vices flattered, and to fe< those virtues trampled underfoot, thefeedi of which might possibly have been in you but were never pra£ticed;you have facriftc-ec to your passions a great part of your urifor tunate nation, and smothered the cry o: nature, only to iiilen to the voice of pride and cruelty. I would fain persuade my felf that your crimes ought rather to b; imputed to your courtiers than to yourfelf But the people knew you alone as king.— In consequence of ail which I ordain, fen tenre, and appoint, that conformably tc your measure of capacity, you be confinec to work at Vulcan's forge for forty thou sand years ; after the expiration of whicl term, I will fall upon Tome means to bcttei your condition.— Ghojl—l3tit is there nc pofiibiht}' of my obtaining an arrest ofjudg ■nent? —Minos—lt is written in the boot of the fates, that you (hall be Vulcan'; bellow?-man—Retire ! Capet retir ed with shame and confufion,fwearing (bui too late) that he would take care how h< ever came to that place again.
