W. le Cointere lequefted, that the
Minister at War, the Military Com

" Whether rhey have means fuffici

of this invasion." He gaveau opini
on refpeifting Mar/hal Luckner,which
was not much in favor ot that Gene
ral, and concluded by proposing,
that 30,000 of the National Guard of
Paris, and of the neighboring Depart
ments, Ihould march in eight days to
the Frontiers."
M. Choudieu thought there was no
occaflon for being so soon alarmed.
He endeavored to point oijt the im

riority of iis forces, and the danger
which the enemy would run by pe

His Excellency Count Clairfayt
having on the 2rft, advanced with
his army Longwy, eretfed
some batteries, which the besieged
endeavored to destroy by keeping np
a violent fire during the whole of

been badly pointed, our batteries

a great number of bombs were thrown
into the town, which set fire to it in
feyeral places, but the besieged fountl

The ali'ertion, that the new {yflem

untrue, that it is scarcely iieceflary
to coiitraditft it. Before the new fyf

whenever money could be extorted

corrupt court formed, and corrupt
judges admihillered ; and no order,
but that of promotion at court, fpr
crimes "against the country. What
ever the new fy!tem may have done,
therefore, it has not overthrown peace,
law and order. In town fucli afler
