LORD FALMERSTON 15 TARIS IS 1815.
ilTRACTS FROM HIS FRIT ATE JOTTmN AL8.
Paris, September 3. I went at 8 to a
review of rrussiaa troops at Champ de Mara.
There were about twenty thousand infantry,
cavalry, and artillery. The Emperor of Ilns
aia, King of Prussia, and the Duke of Wel
lington were present. Many English, but
scarcely any French. The sovereigns rode
round, the troops standing in close columns,
tho cavalry drawn np with their
backs to the Invalides. The staff then
took post, and the troops marched by.
The Prussians are remarkably fine-looking
men, and extremely neat in their dress. The
guards are particularly tall and well-sized, so
that the whole front rank of each company
looks as if it had been sized by a ruler. The
cuirassiers are fine troops, the rest of the
cavalry are rather slovenly in their appear
ance, and monnted upon strong but not very
active-looking horses. The lancers, with their
little black-and-white striped flags at the end
of their lances, have a very singular and
pretty effect at a distance. The foreign
troops all march with a shorter and more
constrained and stiff step than ours. The
Emperor of Kussia was so much struck
with the active, swinging step of oar
men that he ordered his troops immediately
to adopt it. In two days afterwards he had
a body of them out in the Champ de Mars.
The men, as might naturally have been ex
pected, were confused and puzzled between
the step they were used to and that which
they were now required to march with; the
consequence was, they did neither one thing
nor the other, and marched remarkably ill.
The Emperor was in a great passion, and put
three colonels of regiments into close arrest
in one of our guard-rooms. His aides-decamp
thought themselves lucky that he did
not order them to dance, like Yestris, at
twenty-four hours' notice, under pain of a
visit to Siberia.
Monday, Sept. 4. I went at 8 to a sham
fight of the Prussians in the plain of Grenelle,
about two miles out of Paris. There ap
peared to be about twenty thousand men of
all arms. They were drawn np in two bodies,
and, after some evolutions of cavalry, one line
advanced and the other retired; they did not
fire. The manoeuvres were said to be meant
to represent the late attaok of the Prus
sians upon Paris. The troops manoeuvred
with great quickness and accuracy, and the
Duke of Wellington was much pleased with
their manner of deploying from column. I
was observing to hiia the different practice
of our army and that of other naf Tvm iu their
manner of advancing to an attack: they
always advance in column, we in line. lie
Raid he was satisfied that this was one reason
why we had always beaten the French; that
if troops are steady, and the line well formed,
the line will always have an advantage over
tho column, from presenting so much larger
a front of fire; and that, by attacking the
column rapidly, they are prevented from
deploying, which is an operation that can
sot be performed under a close fire. The
object of the column attack is to
penetrate into the enemy's position
and deploy in their rear; if it succeeds in
this, the result is certain. Twice in the
Peninsula the French had established a co
lumn on our position, at Busaco and Albuera,
but in each instance they were immediately
charged by fresh troops and the column
destroyed. At Busaco the duke had had a
regiment of Portuguese militia to make a
road. The work had, however, been done
before they came, and he was going to lead
them back. They begged that, as a battle
waa likely to take place, they might be kept.
He consented, and desired them to remain on
the very ground where they were. This
happened in the course of thu action
to become an important point, and
the French made a great effort to gain pos
session of it. The militia soon found that
they had made a hard bargain of it, and lost
no time in debating who should go away first.
The duke, however, immediately brought up
two British regiments, and before the French
column could deploy on the ground it had
seized, it was cut to pieces. - He said he had
not above sixteen or eighteen thousand
British infantry at Waterloo; that he started
with the very worst army that ever was got
together; but that four or five regiments who
bad been in the Peninsula soon gave a tone
and character to the whole army, and the
result was known. The other troops under
his command did very ill. ' The Nassaua ran
away, and fired at him when he rode np to
rally them. The Prussian army started with
double hia force, but, by the time they
reaoned Paris, he was as strong as they were,
though he had received no reinforcements,
and they had not lost any great number in
battle. But their discipline was so relaxed
that their numbers rapidly diminished during
the march. He had brought sixty thousand
to Paris, and they not more than that force.
The system of individual plunder had
been the ruin of the French army,
and would be the destruction of the Prus
sian. When officers were allowed to make re
quisitions for their troops, they soon began
to make them for themselves; and those who
demanded provisions to-day would call for
money to-morrow. War then assumed a new
character, the profession of arxs became a
mercenary -speculation, and the officer's
thoughts grew to be directed to the acquisi
tion of plunder instead of the attainment of
glory. The duke bad succeeded in keeping
bis army well in hand. No officer was
permitted to make any requisition himself,
but waa obliged to state his wants to the com
missary, who applied to the
Agents of the French Govern
ment for the articles required; and
the supply being made through channel
known to the people, and by authorities re
cognized by them, the burden was not felt to
be so oppressive as if the exaction had been
made by the immediate order of an enemy,
and at the caprice of individual officers. The
consequence was that, though both the Prus
sians and ourselves lived equally at the ex
pense of the country, the first are detested
and the latter liked.
The Louvre has not as yet been deprived
of any pictures of importance, but Lord
Clancarty (Biitish ambassador at the Hague)
, has marked above a hundred which are
claimed as the property of the King of the
Netherlands; and Canova is arrived from
Home to claim both the pictures and statuna
that belong to the Pope. The Venn
Medici is also preparing to return to Iuly.
The basso-relievos upon the arches and publics
buildings, in which anything U contained
that relates to Bonaparte, hv been cuisello I
off, and the number of plain entablatures U
daily increasing. This is perhaps thtt bast
compromise that can be made.
September 11). The dispersion of the gl.
lery was begun to-day, and yesterJay it v.w
shut for the purpose. The Duke of Welling
ton, as Uommander-in-Cbief of the army of
the King of the Netherlands, begins by taking
down all the pictures belonging to Holland
and the Low Countries; and Austria will take
all the pictures and statues that belong to her
Italian dominions, and -will assist Canova in
receiving those which are the property of the
Tope. The French are extremely indignant
at this restitution, and accuse us of a breach
of faith, founding themselves upon the arti
cles of the capitulation between Wellington
and Blucher on the one hand, and the French
army which evacuated Paris on the other.
The facts of the case, however, as told me
by the duke himself, entirely fail them in
making out their case.
When the sovereigns arrived, a negotiation
was commenced for a general restitution; but
the most powerful parties, England and Rus
sia, being little interested in the question,
the matter was not very warmly pressed; and
the French Government continued evading
the demand in hopes of procrastinating the
business till the sovereigns should have left
Paris. The Dutch, however, were with much
warmth urging their demand, but found
some difficulties in their way. In the mean
time Canova arrived from Rome to claim the
property of the Pope; and Charles Long and
Hamilton uniting with him in strong
and urgent reeresontations, the atten
tion of the allies was drawn to tho
question. A disinclination, however, was
found to exist, and a suspicion that our ea
gerness arose from interested motives. In
order to remove this impression, Lord Cs
tlereogh sent in a note to the Emperor of
Austria, to state that, as one objection urged
against a general restitution was that some of
the parties, and particularly the Pope, were
too poor to be able to defray the expense of
removal, we were willing, in order to prove
the sincerity as well as the earnestness of our
representations, to engage to pay this expense
for the Pope, rather than that he should not
have his property restored to him. At
length the objections of France and the dis
inclination of Russia were overruled, and a
general restitution was resolved upon. The
first claimant to be satisfied was the King of
the Netherlands, who had indeed an unful
filled promise from Louis XVIII, of a year's
standing. Wellington was sensible that the
measure must be unpleasant to the king, and
endeavored to carry it into effect in a man
ner at least likely to hurt his feelings.
He said he had never taken more
pains about any thing in his life
'ban to make a satisfactory arrangement
en this subject. His efforts, however, were
fruitless. Talleyrand always evaded answer-.
ing his propositions, and never would fix
upon any day or manner for giving up the
pictures. At length the Duke's patienoe was
exhausted; and, being callod upon by the
ambassador of the King of the Netherlands,
of whose army he was Commander-in-Chief,
to bring the matter to an issue, he aent word
to Talleyrand and Denon that he should, on
the following morning, send a party of work
men to take down the pictures, and that the
party would, if necessary, be accompanied
by a British regiment. This step was taken
yesterday, and the gallery shut to the public.
This afternoon, however, it has been opened
again by the order of Muffling, the Russian
commandant; but the workmen who are
taking down the pictures are protected by
British sentries, posted at every fifty feet
along each side of the gallery, and a British
detachment mount guard in the square at th'e
entrance of the Musee. This signal proof of
the triumph of our arms and of the justice of
our principles, in the very palace of the capi
tal, is a remarkable sight. It was well ob
served by Hamilton, as one reason among
many for the general restitution, that it was
almost the only gratuitous and unequivo
cal proof of vfctiry within the reaoh of
the allies. The mere presence of their armies
in Paris might be explained away by arrange
ments and conventions; the cession or de
posit of fortified places, or the payment of
sums of money by the French, must be the
stipulations of a treaty to which the govern
ment of France might consent from motives
of policy or justice, but in which it acts at
all events as an independent power; but,
when history shall record that those works of
art, which were brought to Paris by victories
and held there by the sword, were sent back
to their respective proprietors by an allied
army in possession of Paris, there will exist
no doubt that such a measure would not
have been submitted to, unless it had been
enforced by arguments more sharp and
weighty than the mere principles of reason or
Friday, 22d. Went to the review of the
British army. The troops were on the ground
early, and I got to them about 9 o'clock.
They were posted in a line parallel to the
great road to bt. Denis, with their left on
Montmartre and their right on St. Denis.
There were sixty thousand men, inoludiag
three thousand cavalry and five thousand ar
tillery, all red-coats and subjects of the king,
British or Hanoverian. The cavalry con
sisted only of the Life Guards and Blues,
two regiments of heavy dragoons, and one
of the hussars of the German Legion. The
bulk of our cavalry, being stationed in Nor
mandy and Picardy, it was not thought worth
while to march them in for this sole purpose.
The Emperor of Russia, and King of Prus
sia, and Emperor of Austria were all present.
The Duke of Wellington told me afterward
that he had not even looked at the ground;
that he had intended to have done so, but
never could find time, and had only a sketch
of it made by one of his officers, whom he
sent to reconnoitre it. The Duke had given
no orders but to appear upon the ground,
and there was not a general of division who
knew what was to be done. The first thine;
the Duke did was to change the position of
the whole line, advancing it some little dis
tance forward from the ground they had origi
nally taken up. He then gave a sort of
representation of his manoeuvres at the bat
tle of Salamanca. He supposed his object to
be to gain possession of some heights in front
of Montmartre, or rather the brow of the hill
itself. He detached part of two divisions
from the right towards St. Denis to go round
and take the supposed enemy in flank, while
be himself attacked them in front. He
marched the army about a couple of miles
across the country, describing a sort of quar
ter circle round Montmartre; and the manner
in which the columns of infantry advanoed,
with occasional charges of cavalry and of
bayonet, gave one a perfect representation
of the attack of an army in an engagement,
with the exception that there was no firing.
At last, when those who did not understand
his evolutions the least expected it, he sud
denly deployed the whole into two
lines in the most beautiful order imagi
nable. There was then a general salute. Taa
sovereigns having taken part, on the spot
where they happened to be, tbe whole army
marched by, in about an hour and a half.
Nothing could exceed the steadiness, and
precision, and rapidity with which the ma
nauvres were performed. There was no
confusion at any point. The men got over
the ground at a surprising pace; and, wheu
the deployment was mad ut last, tbe lines
were as correct as they could have been wheu
on parade. The foreigners who had
been to the Prussian review, where the
whole thing had been diligently rehearsed for
two days beforehand, and where the plain was
covered with little posts with bunches of
straw on the top of them, to point out to each
division the ground it Was to occupy, were
surprised and astonished to find that ao such
preparations had been made on our part, and
that Wellington set out to move about au
army of sixty thousand men with as much
ease as be would have done to move a set of
chessmen on a board. It was some time be
fore they would believe that no order had
been given or plan formed; and Prince Mau
rice Lichtenstein did not seem te credit it till
be bad been assured of the faot by almost all
our generals of division, whom he succes
sively asked. They were also much struck
by seeing the Blues and Life Guards charge
over two very deep and wide ditches that ran
on each side of a road which they were or
dered to cross, and which they effected with
very little loss, having only three or four
tumbles. That which our men did least well
was marching by. The army was very much
admired for its steadiness, its lightness and
regularity, and the care with which it was
manoeuvred. The Highlanders and the horse
artillery seemed particularly to excite atten
tion; and, though the proceedings at the gal
lery had put ns out of favor with the Pari
sians, still there were a considerable number
of French spectatois, and many carriages full
of ladies, a thing never seen at any of the
Thursday, 20th. Dined at Verey's with
Bruce L. Nervins Mont Breton, a man who
had been chief of police tinder Bonaparte for
three years. He looks like a thief as much
as a thief-taker, and has the most remarkable
side-look ont of the corner of the eye I ever
saw. He told us some amusing anecdotes of
the Bonaparte family. He said that Napo
leon was very much swayed and influenced
by them, and particularly by his sisters, who
were very clever and ambitious women, and
who often made him change determinations
which he had formed with apparent ob
stinacy. He said the brothers were most
of them weak and foolish, and had all
of them the inconceivable folly to
imagine that when they were sent to be
sovereigns of conquered states, they were
really meant to be independent kings, and
that it was often difficult to convince them
of their mistake. He was at Cassel when
Jerome came to take possession of the king
dom of Westphalia, and he said the little man
Btrutted about and gave orders to the right
and left just as if he was fixed there for all
eternity; and, when Nevins hinted to him
something about the emperor, hB replied,
with admirable dignity, "Saohez que je suis
erupereur chez moi." Nervins, however,
whose particular business it was to keep him
in order, suggested that perhaps the emperor
might send a general of division to take pos
session of his kingdom if he gave himself
too many airs; and Jerome appears at
length to have been accessible to the
force of such persuasive reasoning. One
day at a levee a courier arrived with
despatches from Bonaparte. Nervins, who
had sent complaints of Jerome, and entreatod
Bonaparte to give him a lecture, was curious
to see how it would be taken, and maliciously
pressed the little king to let them know what
the emperor said. Jerome opened the letter,
and, with the utmost coolness and self-pos
session, read it aloud to the ministers and
persons present; and, as he read it, it ran that
Bonaparte was delighted to hear how well he
went on; that hie administration was so pru
dent and popular, his fihanoes so flourishing,
and his army so well established, that he
every day saw fresh reason to approve the
choice he had made of him for that kingdom,
and ended by assuring him of his undimin
ished affection and regard. Nervins smiled
at the manoeuvre, and, having observed that
a tall officer of hussars had taken advantage
of his superiority of stature to crane over Ut
ile Jerome's shoulders while he was reading
the letter, he asked him as they went out
what be thought of the letter
"Think of it, "replied the officer. "I naver
was so thunderstruck in my life. Why,
would you believe it, I read the letter over
the king's shoulder, and it was word for
word the direct contrary of what he read in
so nnhesitating a manner to ns!"
Thursday, 28th; Friday, 20th. Usual Paris
life: going to the gallery, or the buhl-shops,
or the sights in the morning; taking an early
dinner, and visiting one of the theatres and
Lady Caetlereagh's in the evening. On the
evening of Friday we were much amused by
the hereditary Prince of Bavaria, a very
well-disposed man, but of very singular
manners and appearanoe. He has
some defect in his palate, and a
considerable deficiency in his intellect, so
that, what with the original absurdity of his
ideas, and the inarticulate manner in whioh
he gives vent to them, it is difficult to pre
serve a decorous gravity when conversing
with bim, especially as he is very fond of
talking English, which he speaks extremely
ill. Lady Castlereagu told me that he came
up to her one day in the gardens at Versailles,
and said, "Madame, you Lord Cassele's wife ?"
Ske assented, upon whioh he exclaimed, with
a tender and engaging look, "Dahm de
French!" His fondness for the English and
his. detestation of the French seem the only
interesting parts of his character.
Saturday, 30th. To-day the Austrians
made their long-talked-of attack upon the
brass horse attached to the gilt car on the
top of the triumphal arch in the Place de
Carrousel. As, however, they had no work
men or tools with them, they were obliged to
apply to us, and we lent them a detachment
of our staff corps under Captain Todd. Par
ties of Austrian cavalry guarded the approaches
to the square, and in the inside of it a bat
talion of Ilungaxian grenadiers were drawn
It had been intended to take the horses
down in the night, by way of avoiding an
apparent insult upon the king, as the arch is
so close to the windows of the Tuileries; but
it was found impossible to take them down
with safety in the dark, and it was also
thought that any disturbance that might arise
would be less easily dealt with at night than
by daylight. There had been some little
symptom of a disposition to resistance on the
part of the mob, and a brigade of British
troops were under arms at the entrauoe of
the Champs Elysees, ready to maroh in at a
moment's notice. The display of force, how
ever, prevented the necessity of using it, and
no interruption was offered to
the workmen; indeed, no per
sons on foot, exoept English or allies,
were allowed to enter the square, so that the
mob was kept aloof. A triangle was hoisted
up and fixed upon the top of the arch, the
horses were slung by a pulley fast sued to it,
and, the cement whioh held their feat having
been cut away, they were hoisted up and then
lowered just in the same manner, and with as
much care as live, horses are embarked on
bourd a ship from a pier in a harbor. The
erection of the triangle, however, having
taken a considerable length of time, only one
of tLe horses were got down before sunset,
and the remaining to were left to be got
down to-morrow morning. The operation waa
e i formed with the greatest success; they were
owered into wagons loaded with straw, and
placed under the arch to reoeive them,
and then drawn away under an esoort of Aus
trians to the place where they were to be
properly packed. I ascended the small stair
case which leads to the top of the arch to coo
them before they were taken down, and was
muoh struck with the exquisite beauty of the
workmanship, which, of course, was lot to
the eye when on looked at them from below.
Their age and master are not well known, bat
it is generally believed they were made by
Lysippus, a contemporary of Alexander.
They were originally at Corinth; from
there they were carried to lloru; whm
the scat of empire was moved they fol
lowed the Emperor to Constantinople,
where tby were placed in the Hippo
drome. There they remained from the days
of Censtantine till the Venetians entered
Constantinople. They were than trami ported
to Venice, and in the further lapse of ages
tbe victories of Bonaparte brought them to
Paris, to remain there, as he said of tbe
Apollo, forever. They are now returning to
Venice, and are at least likely to continue
there as long as they have done at Paris. The
triumphal car to which tbey were attrbl
was soon stripped of the gilt-lead ornaments
and wreaths with which it was decorate 1. I
was lucky enough to got to the top of the
arch before the plunder was coroplotod, but
I was told that pieces of the spoil sold in the
course of the afternoon for a napoleon apiece.
A magnificent spread-englo, which was stnek
to the front of the car, was claimed by the
staff corps for the sideboard of the moss
room. Sunday, October 1. The remaining two
horses were taken down early this morning,
and the car and angelio grooms left looking
most forlorn. I met in the evening, at Lady
Castlereagh's, a dark-looking man. whom I
imagined to be Alava, the Spanish Minister,
and a great friend of Wellington's. We wore
talking of the descent of the horses; he Baid
it had enraged the French, and regretted the
manner in which it had been done. He said
the King of France ought to have had an
other lot of horses made as like them as pos
sible, but of load, ne should then have
taken down these in the night, and have put
up the others, and by that means all parties
would have been satisfied; the Venetians
would have had their own, and the French
would not have found out their loss. I stared,
and said to myself, "Who you are I know
not, but I am sure you are not Alava." I
found out be was the Sicilian Minister.
