Dear Sir—I find you are likely to lake Tirnsleon to

races in Virginia he ever ran—his performances Iroin
one to lour miles, have been such as lodo credit lo ihe
best runner, tilher in this country or Europe; and hi*
stile ol going is of the rnos* superior action. His size and
blood entitle him to rank first rate as a i billion. I ne
ver saw hut one ol his colts, which was foaled at my

colt would have done credit to any horse, indeed out of

would as si on this day enter it in a stake ol Irom one to

M. Mauguin having given noticn ol his inte-ition
to put some queition* to the Ministers at tins meet
ing of (he Chamber, the crowd winch aaseinhhd in
the Chamber was greater hm usual. After some lit
lie di?cu*sion as to a matter of form, M. Mauguin
mounted the tribune, and a profound silence ensued.
H* made a few remark* on (tie right of a D-puty to
a-k questions of 'he M n:stcr-, and tli n he proceeded—
“Important ever t* are pis-ing around u«, A pet pie
who have commit w.f no other fault in regard to us, but
to follow our example—» proptr, who, from their vicin
ity to F’ran-e demand our pioection—ar» at this mo
• mem the vie<lms t>f a sy-t-ni ol policy, which reminds
; one of th * (Et1 d ’-Bceuf an I the intrigues ol thn Cah
| in 31 ol Versailles. Wli-n I asked die minist-rs a shir,

non interference, they replied fiat it wa* the obligi
tion imposed on a peiple n. t to interfere with the *f
fa r# of another people, and the duly of not assuming
nnv authority i.Vt-r that other nation.
This principle of non-interference, however, has end
ed in nothing hut in permitting Belgium to choose
for a chief whoever pleatrad i , except those whom it
desired to choose. I speak of thi< with regret, and wish
to receive from the Ministers, particularly from th*
w r 01 ro Anairs, seme explanation on tlu
conduct of the government with regard to Belgium
Siuco yesterday die affair has become more coinpli
cat«d, hy the Mini-try having declared that it would
oppose the union of i.clgiutn to France. 1 wish to
know how die Ministry cjuld m«ks such a declara
tion—how it could rclu-e an increa e cl our territory?
I wi h to know what are theprojoc s-nd -vhil are these
cret designs which have led to such a refusal. Hith
erto I have comprehended the reserve that was due
to the Powers, t.u now, thanks to the care f ihe tllu-ti t
ous Mar-hal—the Minister of War—we are aide
to promt our territory, and cause our power to
In respected. 1 di not comprehend this reserve.
I wdl al-o tak i the oppur unity to direct the atten
tion of the Chain er to en o >ject well worthy of all its
care, and all Its solicitude. A war unto death has
broksn out bouvet-u Russia and Pol ml. The two na
tions are already in conflict. At th- mom-m whsn
this I I iody contest is about to be consuming ed, wha
arc tlie intention* of t’..o Cabinet? What negotiation'
has it entered into? Wbat po ilical cares have o.-ru,
it l.i herto? Ha* it condemned F,ance to remain t,al.
sive—unmoved at the sight of the • lood f a cotiTageou*
and a trse people shed by a saragi and oppressive
hand? These are important subjects, which demand
he a'tei.tii n ol our M nieterr, and on which the Cham
ber and all France expect an explanation
M. Sebastian!, the minister (or fo>eign sffdrs, im
mediately nn unted the tribure, with a manuscript In
his hand. II* said: Gentle men, publicity is the soul
ol a representative government. I•• dominion exfsnds
over the past and the future. A free Os ion hag a right
| to know what h e beeu done for i>e interests, and wbat
| will be dvne. After expla Ding in wlnt degree ptibll
| c ty as to foreign r.lalons required to be reCrieled,
| he obre'ved, that after a government was cmvinced
that its eff.irts to maintain peace would fail, it ought
to continue th-rn to cmciti a e lbs good will of man
kind. The demonstration of a good cause ie not, even
in case ol war, an auxiliary to he d ipised. It had
been imput-d 'o Ihe present Minlstr.v, he said, as ,
crime, that they had not repudiated the Tie diet of 1814.
He was one of llio»e who had always opposed those
Treaties, and Nmoleo i br-kshii «e-i>’re catb«e »hati
s gn them; but Napol-on nu his re urn in 1815. o'
tered to ratify them He knew how to adjust his po
licy to hie strength, an I that which Napoleon would
have done in 1815 could hardly be itnpu cd lo the Go
vernment ol Louie PftiMppe as a fault in 1830. To
have thrown eff the Treat es of 1814, would have been
nothing else then war with alt Europe,
The orator then pointed out the disorganized state of
the army after the Revolution, and said it was a great
merit ol Marshal Gerard not to despair of it under such
circumstances. At present, the French military, in re
spect to number and discipline, is as formidable a* in
the days of it* glory; and if ever It I* constrained to
conquer new laurel*. Jone word from his Majesty, and
our battalion*, will hi- in motion. The Revolution of
France, (hough it had been pacific, had not tailed to dis
turb the whole of Europe: Belgium has broken the yoke
imposed on her by tbe Congress ol Vienna; and Poland,
mutilated as she i», has risen to claim new rights, and to
become a fre<vn*flon. Gut of these circumstance* com
plaint* *re formed against the former and the present
administration —for the present has only followed the
system laid down hy the former administration. The
policy of King Philippe has always been flie same, a«
he only now wishes what he always wished. Though
Ithe revolution in Belgium, just at our doors, i* most in
teresting for tie, a* ft is most complicated, I shall con
clude my explanation* with that which has nothing in it
embarrassing ter a frank ami sincere government. The
Poles have claims on the kindness and fr endship of
k ranee. They a'one remained faithful to us in tho days
ol adversity. The annihilation of that brave and gene
rous tut on was a calamity for Europe; but that politi
cal crime was not committed iu our days. Tin griefs
ol Poldtid are felt by us, but what can we do for her?—
Wo are separated from her by 400 leagues. Even if
tho interest ol France, the first duty of u government,
allowed it to risk in the favor of the Poles the princi
pal*! of non-interence which it has proclaimed, how could
F ranee reach Poland? Peacefully? Prussia would re
fuse. Vt iih arms? I heu must we conquer all the north
of Flurope. That is to propose to us the campaigns ot
Napoleon. Let us say. then, with sortow, that we ran
do nothing for Poland hy force of arms, 't ho Holy Al
liance was based on the principle ol i ter fere nee, the
destroyer of national independence; (lie contrary prin
ciple which we profess, and *>hall know how to respect,
assures the independence and libertv ol all. Hut .t we,
to succor a nation for which we leel a great interest,
were to jet the example of violating our own principle,
our policy would he unjust and delusive, and we would
lose hy that ail authority in Europe. As for Belgium,
gentlemen, it is not placed beyond the sphere ot our
power. As soon as the groat event which separated
Belgium from Holland forever was accomplished, wo
hastened to proclaim tho guardian principle of iiou-iu
terlorence, and to declare that if a foreign soldier en
tered Belgium, France would at that instant take up
arms. Let us not, therefore, fe *r to say, that F'rance has
saved Belgium from foreign invasion; at present it Is ne
cessary to save Belgium from herself; anil to accomplish
that, what must we do? Ton hove heard it said from
the Tribune, that Belgium ought to be united to F'rauee.
Belgium offered it. Why have the Ministers refused
it? 1 will say, first, that Belgium has never offered.—
No national wish, legally expressed, has been address
ed to the King, and consequently wo have not refused
that which has not been oflered to u*. But far be (roui ine
I vino ui a question 01 reality by
a mutter ol form. 1 will avow, then, sincerely, that i
think tins union is called for hy the great majority ot tho
Belgians—I will add, that, useful to Belgium, that uu
ion would be, in iny opinion, more necessary to the re
pose of Europe than to the greatness ol France. But
Europe in this respect—and i am far from being aston
ished at it—does not share my coin lot on. Time ami
experience, which comes in its train,will teach perhaps
a different opinion. In the meanwhile old prejudices
exist, and the recollection of the Grand Empire occu
pies the minds of tho people and their Sovereigns.—
I hey would botli bo alarmed at this re-utiion, and if in
their tcrr<#one alone took up arms, the peace ol Europe
and the whole world would he immediately at an eml,
and the world, threatened once before, would fall
into chaos. The Minister subsequently denied that
the Belgians had been restra ned by Francein the
choice 11 a Sovereign, and concluded hy saying
that Belgium, like Switzerland, had been admitted by
the Five Powers to the advantages ol European neutrali
ty. That certainly was not the policy ot QJil-dc Uiei f
of 1815, and even the opposition must confess that tho
Revolution of Franca ot July, holds a different place
in Europe from that held by France after the Restora
tion.
Gen. Sebastian! was followed by Gen. Eamarque, who
observed, that tbe young conqueror of the Balkan had
many enemies, and recommended the employment of a
warlike torco in the Black Sea, as a means of interfer
ing etiicaciou-ly in favor of Poland. Ho spoke of the
Belgian question with pain, and ol the Protocol of Jan
uary 9ih, as re* nibling tho work of Castlcreagh, and
ot the Congress of Vienna.
M. IJupiii followed, and was succeeded by M. Eu
*cbo S.ilverte, both of worn made long speeches,
which it is impossible for uj to give to night jju. <je_
bato was afterwards adjour.xed to the following day.
t>n leaving the Chamber, the crowd said that the true
questions of foreign policy, which engaged the atten
j lion ot all France, had not been discussed at he Meet
I ing, and a w ish was loudly expressed that they might
! lie to-morrow.
Jammy 29.—The President took the chair at two
o’clock, and said—The Chamber having adjourned to
this day the discussion upon the f reign affairs of France,
M . ( inline Gridaine is the first Member to speak inscri
bed upon the list.
j. Tiiat Gentleman spoke against the separation of Bel
gium from Holland.
j M. de Schonan declared that he was not for war,
though an homnxe du mouvement, as ttie inea of July
i w'ero called; hut it was the movement of peace and ci
I vilizalion, which ho cons dered preferable to that ci ea1
ed by war.
The Minister of War.—Belgium has been ro
cognised as independent; she has been able to devoto
her attention in peace to ilia institutions and liber
ties which tho barricades of Paris, and after them
the baricades of Brussels, had just won. Liberty a
ro«c, and it sprung up out of the French principle,
j Belgium may constitute herself a State, is this result,
i then, nothing, Gentlemen? And to whom is she in
debted lor having obtained it? I de not think that our
task is finish d; hut, if we have begun it well, it be
longs to us to complete if. It is by us that" peace lias
been maintained, and it is by us iliut its maintenance
will be secured to Europe. Too long disorders, of wh ch
..V. Iiust, Vivuius, Iiavo aumriUU OUT COUKliry;
let us not renew them by war. During fifteen years,
foreign influence weighed heavily upon France, and
then peace was granted to her. Henceforth it is 9hc
who ought to demand peace; let her language to Eu
rope he that of force; but, above all, gentlemen, let her
be strong, for thereby alone will she maintain her dig
nity amidst the nations; lot her secure the maintenance
of this peace, which is as necessary for tiie develop
ment of her prosperity as for that of the Institutions
which our glorious revolution has founded. Moreover,
gentlemen, this is not a wish that I make heiore you
for the first time; this wish, which I expressed tour
months’ago, is now accomplished, and the King’s Minis
ters can give you the assurance that Fiance will take
care that the peace shall not he disturbed.— Nothing
was be juetthed to us by the (alletidyn<sty, but Wounds
to heal, and disasters to repair, and jet France has a
gain assumed at homo and abroad that attitude with
which tlie sentiments ol his force and dignity inspired
tier. The (ask was immense, hut it has been fulfilled.
I hare been aide to measure the whole extent of (ho
services rendered to our country by Marshal Gerard,
for tbo great r part of our army was disorganised.—
When, yie ding is ihs emp re of eircurnsta cet, Ihs
hoods o' dtsciplln* w-re hrukm who could have fore
see * tbs' in si *horl s time the sriny would havs be
« me what it is at present. At no p* rioJ of our histo
ry, perhaps, not even when 14 armies covered the soil
o' Fr n~a, was the enthusiasm to ^-eat. Toe reports
which reach ire from all p»rts are unanimous. At

In the m uniat ex* rriss. In sev-fwlcorp* the men sub

such e'ements, Gentlemen, we are heneefirth sure
to keep France up to the elevated rank to which shs
if ca led. It is for Franca to secure peace to Europe;
if l! can he maintained, It I* to Franc* that Europe
w.ll ba Indebted for it. The King’s Ministers are u
naniinous, are a'l animated wi h the sa ne spirit. Or

sack for peace. But if the fir brand* of war should be
I'gh'ed any where, Frmce is ready; she never dread

M. Bignon consi lered that the policy of the Cald
