Paris, April 10.
•* 4 private letter from Madrid stale?, ♦hat on leaving the Cortes, Kiego, and the most distinguished Constitutional M*‘n' v were assassinat jd by tne aervile3;that ti populace «t Madrid instantly *rose en jLJ penetrated into the Royal Palace I 3n i massacred all the Loyal t ainily. e know not what credit is due to this mtel fiaence, which we have traced to General if \ who states,he had seen the letter to the above purport -— yew York, jV/ay 18. It seem* to be the opinion of many persons in this country, that France is Lanch a fretful and uneasy condition, t.hat the nation is on tho eve ot serious internal disturbances, at least, if not of insurrection. Uneasiness there certain j i8 m France, and almost every where f se, with the measures of government. It is in the nature of thing* that a cer tain portion ot every cominun y shou d complain of their political circumstan ces especially it the government under which they live has in it any considera ble portion of freedom. There is per w< as much of this kind of complaint in Great Britian as in any country on the globe. Take that nation for an ex ample If we had but lately been made acquainted with the public affairs of Great Britain, and had tor the tirst time hid opportunity to read the opposition pipers, and the parliamentary speeches of Earl Grav, Lord Holland. Lord King &c. of Sir Francis Burdett, Mr. Hob house, Mr. Br tul.am, Sir Robert Wil aon, Mr* Bennett, and Mr Creevy. we •hould at once conclude, not only that the government was the most corrupt and oppressive in the woild, but that the great body of the people were ripe for insurrection, rebellion and revolu tion. But knowing that their govern ment is representative, that mixed with the principles of monarchy there is a spirit of freedom anu independence also aDd that an opposition always exists who are struggling with all their might to turn out of place all those who hold offices of honor and profit, intending when the opportunity offers to step in and take their places, the matter is per feetly understood—it ceases to be for midable even to the men in power—it dwindles down to a mere brangle for place and emolument, while the atlairs of the government go on as usual, and there is no danger even of serious dis turbance. France has interwoven into her constitution a poriion of freedom al so Their government is to a certain extent elective and representative; and being divided into different branches, and houses projects for laws are prepa red, presented, discussed, and auopted or rejected, somewhat up*»n the plan of the British Parliament and the Ame rican Congress. This course of procee ding produces debate, and the accounts we from time to time receive of their discussions, are calculated to make us at this distance, believe that they are upon the very verge of internal commo tions. The manners of the French are quite different, in all respects, from those ofthe people of Great Britian, or of this country. When engaged in de bate. the warmth of their language, and the violence of their gesticulation, wculd 1c <d a stranger to suppose, that the mem b*r engaged was not merely an orator; hi w’ould imagine him to be prepared and even anxious for combat.—Hence, in the reports of their proceedings, tho' we have not the opportunity of hearing the tones of voice, or of witnessing the displays of oratory, we read the vehe mence of style, the threatening language and we come to the same conclusion W'dh the bystander, that these men are prepared for violence of almost every Kiud. But it is the effect of the nation al character, and the genius of their go-* verninent—it is the struggle of parties —ministerialists and the opposition— for power and place, and appears more formidable in the legislative hall, and , 9 • on the rostrum, than in any other situ tion. France has experienced too deeply the evils of revolution, lightly and wil lingly to encounter them again. So long as the present combination of pow er exists on the continent of Europe, she could never expect to succeed in an at ‘•einpt to overthrow the present order etchings, or establish a new dynasty &, | a different government. The northern powers, who have twice entered the t rench capital, would be very unvvel t'ome visitors a third time. Should the Holy League crumble to pieces, France rcii^ht reasonably hope to regain tier for mer vigour, and be able to act with her dnner effect. As long as that lasts, ^ maintains its oversight of the in - oi legitimacy, we do not expect 'O hear ot any formidable insurrection 'here against the Bourbon sovereignty. A PEEP AT MEXICO. VROMTHE KENTUCKY COMMENTATOR. Lxfract nj a letter from a gentleman in *>Ux*co9 to his brother in Frtnklin bounty Kentucky, dated CITY OF XEXlCO, JAN. 8, 1822. * On the 2dth of November we arri ' ed at the great city of Mexico, distant ro,n \ era Cruz, about three hundred nu.e*. I'he main road leading from one -uese cities to the other is the best I ** travelled, although the country tiro which it passes is the most inoon tainons lever beheld. Mexico i> sur rounded by mountains, some of who h ! .ire covered with snow all the year 'hev afford a grand and splendid pi osl from the city, where gardens a-e oo-ered with flowers and other ve^cu | bie productions at all seasons of the ■ year. 1 have ate ripe peaches in the morning at the toot of a mountain, and in the evening, after having passed the mountain? have seen orchards in bloom. This country produces all the fruits of the West Indies, »s well as those of North America, the apple comes to great perfection; the water mellon may be had every day in the year; potatoes, and in fact every thing that man can wisli for, may be produced here, though the in habitants live wretchedly, the city is til led with poor; you are attacked at eve ry corner of the street by beggars—a large number of whom are able to work, but have been raised in indolence, and can do nothing except ride or pack a mule, which is their only mode of trans portation. I have been informed that at the time Cortez conquered the city, it contained i two hundred thousand inhabitants, and ! ai the commencement of the revolution one hundred and seventy thousand; at this tune the population is calculated at one hundred and twenty thousand, two thirds of which are Indians, the most ig ! norant, superstitious, and indolent I , have ever seen - they have been priest ridden, and king ridden, untii they are neither tit for soldiers, sailors, or citi zens. I have frequently visited the oid palace of Montezuma, and have been in the room which he tilled with gold to purchase peace of the Spaniards. 1 have likewise seen the large stone that Montezuma and his people worshipped —this stone is made to resemble the sun, and is about eight feet in diameter, of solid stone, on which is carved the figure of all the animals inhabiting the country—it is now put in front of the Cathedral as an ancient ornament. At this time I inhabit a part of the Vice Roy’s palace: it is a splendid building, calculated to quarter twenty thousand dragoons, the lower story is all stables and granaries, the second, quarters for the soldiers; the third, officers of the go vernment,” PORT OF ALEXANDRIA COPIED FROM THE READING-ROOM BOOKS, ARRIVED. ..MAY ^4, Steam boat Surprize, Taylor, Balti more; intended to ply between this place xnd Georgetown. may 25 Schr.
