Extracts from the Leydcn Gazette.
Leyden, June 27. In our lad we gave an abridgement of the a£l of accusation in virtue of which Louis Philippc-Jofeph- Egalite, ci-devant duke of Orleans, has been iinprifoned at Mavfeilles, for criminal process before the tribunal .-ftafclifhed in that city by the faction of BrifTot and Barbarous We remarked that this act greatly refcmbled that upon which was formed the monstrous procedure against the unfortunate Louis the 16th, full of contradictions, confufion, and improbabi lity. The fame may be observed of the junificatory pieces, It is well known, that among those produced against the late king, there were some so evidently falfj, and fafeviiated for the pdrpofe, that the slightest degree of difcernmeat could at once detest the impoilure. Without pretending to defend a man (Egalite) who embrued his hands in the blood of his sovereign, of his relation, of his benefac tor, we leave our readers to judge of the authenticity of the principal pieces, which are to convidt the infamous Egalite of the trime of having aspired to ti'yalty. The firft is as follows, which was brought for ward at his interrogatory. It is a letter of the late Miribeau, of versatile memory, addressed to him who was at that time called Duke of Orleans * Sir, You will not think me obttinate if I continue to afTert it as my opinion, that the king should give his veto, (negative to 'certain a&s) a measure you have hitherto much <iifapproved of. I have uled my endea vours for this purpose only with a view to serve your interests. As to the king, he will continue to increase the number of the discontented, and will attend to no thing but thefupport «f his royal dignity and favouring the different ranks of court hangers-on. The nation will discover this, ■will complain, and the conclusion will be, llis death. The execution of our dccrees ■will only be poflponed, however. As you know his brothers are viewed with an evil eye, and are absent, you cannot but be a gainer by those circumstances. If (as I forefee) there should a terrible revolution take place, you are a favourite of the peopk ; and the people cannot and -will not do otiierwife than proclaim you their J.ing. As to the reft, it lies with yourfelf. The Constituting Assembly will be with you; and the throne, to which you do rot ascend at the firft explosions of ponu- Jar infurreftion, will be universally offered to you. Then you will reign peaceably,; You may rcckon, fir, on my best affiftanct ■and refpeftful acknowledgments (Sign ed) Mirabeau.—Paris 4th of March, 4790 " Interrogatory. What have you to ati. fwer to this letter ?—Anfwer. 1 never re ceived that letter: and Milabeau neither <3id nor could have written it : he knew that I had no intention of reigning, that I only wished for the supremacy ol ihe people.—Did not Mirabeau ever speak to you in the fame manner, without fufpedting your wishes and defigis ? You !fay you have no knowledge of this letter ; we will therefore read to you another, fol lowed by your an fwer. " Sir—Before I address you on matters that most intimately concern you, permit me to express my gratitude and fenlibility. Madame has fully entered intu your magnanimous views. She publicly lavs, that such a prince as you upon the throne, would soon eclipse Marcus Aure lius, Antoninus, and Trajan himfelf. Only have a little patience; for things cannot •go on better than they do. Prudence and vigour are alike necessary. Agreeable to your card of invitation, I will go to sup with you at your Chateau de Raincy, and will give you a faithful account of the xefult of the opinions of the different mem bers of the French legislature. I am, with sentiments of the highest refpeft, your moll obedient, See. Mirabeau. " Paris, May 10, 1790." uejlion. Do you acknowledge this let ter to be yours ?—Anfwer. " I recollect very well that Mirabeau, an'd several of his fellow members came to sup with me at Raincy; but the letter which the Secretary has jufl read, I know nothing of, anymore than the firft."—" You re turned an answer to it, however: How happened that i Here is your own answer 1 viz. " I congratulate you, my dear Mi rabeau, on your heroic designs. In not losing fight of my interests, depend 011 it you will advance your own- If you can so manage matters, that I shall be pro. claimed king of France, reft aflfu that dre I will remember your services. Kings (it is said) do not know how to love. You (hall experience the contrary ; for my ge nerosity and gratitude fiiall know no bounds. Go on then as you have begun ; and do not fail to tonfound that knave, the Abbe Maury, with your eloquent and enlightened reasoning. I fhqll dine to morrow at my palace royal. I will not in vite you, because you have already a ge neral invitation. When I l?ave the Na tional AfTembly, do me the favour to fol low me. I will then tell you some parti culars of Conde, and his family. lam your's entirely, (Signed) Philippe Jofcph D'Orlear.s. Raincy, May 12, 1790. Brujfds, June 24. " It was not till the 10th of June, in the morning, that the firing of the combined forces began upon Valenciennes. Hitherto little else than a deftri'&ive bombarding has taken place, occalioning many violent conflagrations in the town, which however have been ex tinguifhed by the garrison, with the as fiftanCe of the citizens The works for approaching the place, are rapidly advanc ing ; but the constant rains for many days pad have greatly impeded the exertions of the armies, and besides entirely ruining many of the works, serve to damp the spirits of the workmen, and greatly retard the completion of the second parallel, anol no attempt to batter the town, so as tc effc£t a breach, will be made till that is linifhed. The garrison, on their part, ne gled no means to make a vigorous defence, Not a day but they make forties, to inter rupt the labourers, and too frequently fuc -1 ced in their attempts. The fire from the ramparts is at all times the mod severe: they have already dismounted many of oui canron ; but the damages are soon repair ed. General Ferraris, who direfls the siege. in all his operation- maniftfts the greatefl knowledge and abilities, united with mud prudence. Ihe works thrown up rounc the place are the admiration of every so reign engineer that has viewed them. On< of them in a letter to a friend thus ex prefles himfdf; "If the allies had laic siege to all France, their works for th< purpose could not have been flronger o better contrived, than those ere&ed to re duce Valenciennes only." The English commanded by the Duke of York, ani who make part of the army employed a the siege, discover incredible ardour anc bravery. The old antipathy that has si long existed between their nation and thi French is now revived in its full vigour and constantly discovers itfelf on all occa fions. There is just arrived at the fubnrbi of Tournay a body of 2000 Englifl cavalry, to reinf#rce a detachment o the allied troops, that now blockade th, fortrefs of Lille. It seems to be the in tent ion of our generals to attack the camj of Magdelaine, that covers the last men tiotied 'city, and much harraffes our Flan dtri n-ontier. 011 the other hand, the) write irom Luxembourg, that the Frencf arts collecting vail bodies of frefli troops, who menace that province with a new in vafion. It is evidently the intention ol Gen. Cuitine to make a diversion on that (ide to interrupt the siege of Valenciennes, rnd, if poflible to cut off the communica tion between the grand army, under Prince and the Rhine. At Treves, md in that quarter, they labour under the noil dismal apprehensions, for fear the French should be able to penetrate into hat electorate. A body of artillery, and mother of infantry haa inarched from Luxembourg, to cover that part." Peterjbourg, May 28. The Princess Louisa Maria Augulta de Bade, intended ;o be married to the grand Duke Alex lnder, on the 20th of this month in the ;ourt chapel, made her public cor.session if the truth of the Greek religion, under the name of Elisabeth Alexiewni ; and toon after the ceremony of the marriage .ontraft was pet formed.—The grand fleet, under admiral Tfchitfchagoff, is collected in the ports of Cronltadt and Revel, in number as follows, viz. 8 ships of 100 guns—B of 74—3 of 70—7 of 66—and 8 frigates. They will fail in 8 days, ac companied by the lesser squadron, under rear admiral I'cderow, confiding of 50 gun boats, 7 frigates, and 5 floating bat teries.
