Joseph Bonaparte’s return to Paris, is sta
ted by a gentleman who is arrived from the ■
French coast, to be preliminary to the de_
parture ol Fedinand VII. for Madrid, there
to be. proclaimed king of Spaiu. We attach 1
no credit to this statement. That Joseph
Bonapcrte will never return to Madrid, and
that his brother will unking him, ts very
probable—Equally prubable is it, that Hi i»
parte will declare Spain par1 of tne French
Empire, and himself sovereign of it. Wc
remember a memorable threat he nee d
out to tne Spaniards to reconcile hem o
Joseph’s government. “ If you do not ike
hint, you shall have me." That they do not
like Joseph, is pretty evident—that hey
like him still less, is equally clear—and spue l
ol his threats and ett'oits they trill neither
have him nor bis brother. He cannot con*
