A file of each is received at the office of the Mercantile Advertiser. They contain a *great mass ot interesting matter, of which our limits will not penult us to give more than a brief outline. Hostilities had not commenced on the Continent, Preparations on a scale of great magnitude continued tube making on ei ther side, and in a very little time it was expected the powers would u Cry Uncock, and let slip tiie dog9 of war.” Murat, the king of Naples, has ceased foreign.—On the Hth May the British squadron entered the May of Naples, and the shippingand arsenals were surrender ed. V/hetnerthe king escaped, or remain ed a prisoner, had not been ascertained.— An account had reached the British gov ernment, that ha had been taken prisoner, & $ent to Vienna : another account repre sents him as having landed at Toulon ; and private letters had been received from Paris in which he is 9aid to have actually arrived in that city. I ne Assembly of tne Champ-ue-Mai 'was held at Paris on the la3t day of that month. The Moniteur says it was an im posing spectacle, at which France was re presented by the chosen of its citizens, ag riculturists, merchants, magistrates, and warriors-—a scene producing as lively an enthusiasm as any that had taken place since the epoch of the revolution.

The remaining third in front of the throne v. :.s open. Anal tar was erected in the middle : beyond and at the distance of 100 fathoms was raised another detached throne, which commanded a view of the whole champ de Mars. The emperor, having repaired to the champ de Mars with the procession, ap peared on the throne amidst the sound of universal acclamations. Muss was cele brated. The members of the central deputation of the rle.cforal colleges of France advanc ed to the foot of the throne, the staircase of which they hail mounted to have a hot ter sight of the emperor, and to be better seen by him. They were in number about 500. They had been presented to his ma-j jesty by his highness tile nrcli-chanccllor of the empire. (;ne of the members of the deputation, M. Dubois,of Angers, elector and repre sentative of the department of Maine anil Loire then pronounced, with a loud and animated voice, the following address in the name of the French people : “Sirk—The French people had dc sreed you the crown, which you abdicated Without its aconstent; its suffrages non impose upon you the duty of resuming it. “ A new contract has been formed be tween the nation and your majesty. “ Assembled from all fjuar'ers of the empire aro i1 IJ'he tab es oT t ie 'a v, up»n winch we have just inscribed the w.Il >f the people—that will which is the only le gitimate source ot power—it is impossible Fur us not to repeat the cry of France, of which we are the iminedirte organs, not to declare, in the presence of Europe, to the an wist chiei of tiie nation, what it expects wf hi.n, and what he ought to expect of it. “ Our words shall be grave as the cir cumstances which iuspire them. ‘‘ "rhat are the designs of the league or allied kings, with those warlike prepara tions with which they terrify Europe and afflict humanity ? 51 x>y what act, by what violation hav« we provoked their vengeance, occasioned their aggressions ? “ Have we, since the p^acc, endeavored to give law to them? We wish oily to make and to follow such as are adapted to ourmanners. “ V» e will not have for our head him whom our enemies choose forus, and we will have him to whom they are adverse. “ They presume to proscribe you per sonally—you, sire, who, though so often master of their capitals, had generously re-established them on their tottering tlirons ! This hatred of our enemies strengthens our attachment to you. Were theSmeanest of our citizen; proscribe 1, we ought to defend him with the same energy : he would be, like, you under the segis of the la wand of the power of France. “ \v e are threatened with an invasion ! and yet shut up within our frontiers vhiclr nature has not given us, which long befoVo your reign victory and peace had|extended —we have not passed those nar row btmn '9, out oi respect for the treaties which you have not signed,and which you have offer ed to respect. “ Is it guarantees only that they wnnt ? These are to tie found i i all our institit lions, and in the will of the French people hcnceforfh united with yours. “ Ought they not to he afraid of remind* ins: us of a very different time and a very different state or things, winch ho.vever, might once more recur ?■ “ it would not be the first time that we should have conquered Europe armed against us. it is to the French nalion that they dare deny a second time, in the 19th con* tury, ir the face of the civilized world, those sacred imprescriptible rights, which, the smallest tribe ?;cver claimed in vain at the tribunal of" justice and of history. ^ “ Because France is determin'd tube France, must she be dragged, torn, dis membered ; and is the fate of Poland re served for us ? “ In vain.would they cloak fatal designs under the mask of the sole intention of se parating you from us, i.i order to give us masters with whom we have nothing n common, whom we do not understand, and w!. » cannot understand us, who seem to belong neither to tlie age nor to the na tion, whicn received them for a moment into its liosnin, only to behold its must ge ner >ti3 citizens proscribed ar.d degraded by them. ° “ Their presence has destroyed all t'«e illusions which were still attached to their name. “ They would no longer be able to be lieve our oaths—we could no lunger be. lievc their promises. Tythes, the feudal system, privileges, all that is odi >us to us, was too evidently the aim, and bottom of their thoughts ; when one of them, to quiet the impatience of the present, assured his confidents^that he would be answefatrie to them for the fuure. »v hat eiiCii or us had lor 3.7 con sidered as titles of "lory, as services wor thy of reward, was to tl ctn a cause uf pro scription, a seal of reprobation. A million of functionaries, of magis— trates who for 25 years have followed tli“ same maxims, and from whom we have chosen our representatives : 500.000 war riors, our strength and our glory : six mil lions of landed proprietors invested by the revolution : a still greater number of en lightened citizens, who make a deliberate profession of those ideas which have grown up among ns into political dogmas—all these worthy Frenchmen were not. the Frenchmen of tire Bourbons : they tviih to reign only by a handful of privileged /nvr, sons,punished or pardoned for 89jrr<u-sp “ Opinion itself, this sacred property „f man, they have presecutcd—prosecuted even in the peaceable sanctuary ufletlcrs and arti. “ Sire, a throne erected for a moment by foreign arms, and environed with incu rable errors, has crumbled to pieces in an instant before you ; because you bring back from retirement, fruitful and grand ideas to great men only, all the traces of our real glory, and all tlie hopes of our real prosperity. t “ How must your triumphal march from Cannes to Paris have opened all eyes . In the history of all nations, and of all ages, is there a scene more national, more heroic, more imposing? Is not this tri umph which- has not cost a drop of blood sufficient to undeceive our enemi'*s ?_-O'! they wish for more bloody on<*s ? We!!, sire, expect from us every thing <* t an heroic founder has a right to expert P om a natron faithful, energetic, generous, not to be shaken in its principle*, in ariabie in the object or its efforts, independence abroad, and liberty at borne. ** The three branches <.f the legislature nre on the eve of operation.

Co’fidio * in the promises of your majesty, n : rnm mH to it. tve commit to our represent tives, and to the chamber of p< or , the cake of revising, consolidating, and per fee tin « m concert—-without precipitation—with’ out shock— with maturity—with violon —oor constitutional system*- x.iri t!,f. ;n. dilutions which are to secor*' jr.
