virtually abrogates the monopoly, and h
places sugar in the same category as is
corn, by an easy declension on the high n
road to free-trade. Sir Robert Fuel gave n
the ministerial measure a generous sup- tc
port, and the greatness of the majority d
may be traced to that circumstance. 1

" Lieut. Leo, oi the 8th Infantry, who
arrived this afternoon direct from the

bringing news ten days la'.er from

in another column. There was a steady
demand for cotton at Liverpool with
a tendency to advance in price. A seventh
attempt has been made to assassinate
the King of the French, which
has been as unsuccessful as the former,

"The fetes of July closed Inst evening
with a couple of shots at Louis i'hillippe
while at his bnlrnn surrounded by his
family, greeting a multitude of his subjects
and enjoying a concert in the Tuilleries'garden
close to the palace. We
had just entered the garden?and were
approaching to enjoy the music and get
a full view of royalty?when the. mad
attempt occurred ; but, the king is true
game?the applause of him became immense
in consequence?and remaining
all the time at the balcon, he ordered the
music to continue , (there being perhaps
'200 performers in a magnificent temporary
structure,) and to show his confiilmirn

the thousands in front of him, he had j
the concert, which continued nearly an \
hour after this event, closed by playing
the Marselaise Hymn twice. This air,
so beloved by the mass of the people,
but which is identified with all the horrors
of the lie volution of 1709 as well :
as with the succeeding period of their i
prowess in arms and triumphs, as a re i

of this celebrated tune monarchs
