The Regency proceeded to make every
necessary arrangement for a general depar ture; the Cortes remained in session through out the day and night of the 11 lb June, act ing in concurrence—but the ministers made considerable difficulty about accepting their offices anew, from the Regency, and did not yield until five in the morning of the 12th. This circumstance occasioned great alarm among the constitutionalists. At eleven, the same morning, one of the Regency waited on the King, and announced to him what had been done. He received the message with complacency, and answered that he was rea dy to set out. Atone o’clock, the regular troops and militia were under arms to pro ceed, and the river was covered with boats laden with effects of every kind. But the King was again seized with scrupfes, and this being rumoured, the greatest agitation and confusion prevailed at Seville until near « seven in the afternoon; when Ferdinand and ’ the Royal family entered their carriages and were driven off, followed by the military ik cort. The exit was then reported to the Cortes, who had not separted a moment, and did not adjourn until 9 o’clock. On the 11th, an Irish general Downie, in the service of Spajn, and thirteen others, were committed to prison, as parties to a conspiracy for the destruction of the consti tutional government. Within a few hours after the departure of the authorities and troops, the populace, in stigated and led, a- it is affirmed, by a num bei friars, and a few other traitors before concealed, rose, and during the three subse quent davs. committed the mnet hnrrirl nv I cesses. They plundered the boats in tbe ri ver,-sacked the houses of many who had gone with tbe government, robbed, and slript naked, persons of both sexes, dissolved the con-titutional municipality, and bid defiance to tbe few battalions left to maintain order. The following incident is related in a letter dated Seville, I6tb June: •‘In the edifice called the hall of the In quisition. there was a considerable number of botes of powder guarded by an officer and some soldiers of the Queen's regiment. The populace bejng told that the botes con tained money, rushed to the ball in order to plunder them and murder the guard, but Ihe officer, with unexampled courage, set tire to the powder and blew up the Canaille who had entered. Eighty persons, among them Some friars, have been taken out of the ruins.” The King of Spain and suite arrived at Cadiz at half past six in the afternoon of the 16th June.—The troops of the garrison, and the national militia occupied the public square, and an immense crowd filled the streets, windows and balconies.—Tbe muni cipal authniities received tbe King at the entrance, where the governor of the fortress delivered to him :he keys of the city with the usual formalities, and he was congratu lated on his arrival in the name of the inha bitants. ' “The enthusiasm,’'says the Cadiz Ga xette, “which was manifested on this memor able occasion ronfirmed (lie opinion which we have entertained of tbe patriotism and sensibility of the people; union and harmo ny were seen on every side not the least disorder or excess was committed; the sounds repeated in innumerable acclamations were ikf tea mi >el l! a U lev OI Aei- nnnrl I A ~ .. 13-,-- , .v. independence and liberty.” The royal family were lodged in private dwellings, until the Palace at the custom house could be got ready for their accom modation. The Cortes assembled at Cadiz on the 15th June. Eighty-eight members an swered to the call of their names, and most of the rest were announced to be near to tbc city. The Espectador of the I8th June, con tains a despatch to the government at Cadiz, from Lopez Banos, General in Chief of the third army of operations, (Jbisbal's) dated Seville, June 16, in which he state- that hav ing heard of the disorders and auarchy reign ing in Seville, be had proceeded totha: city f with his troops, by forced marches, doubt ing, however, whether he should reach it before the French army. On the 26th he arrived, was fired upon from the streets and bouses, routed the multitude without loss on bis own part, killed some of them, and re stored order. At the last meeting of the Cortes in Ca dis, the Regency was dissolved, and the King re habilitated. General Riego, inalet lei published on the I9lh June, blames the Regency for nut having taken proper mea Sures to prevent the occurrence of anarchy at Seville, and mentions that the journey of the Royal family was so precipitate from Se' 'l!e to Alcala, as to resemble a disorder ly flight. The King was not permitted to a light at all, but took refeshments in his car ri ige. On the 18th at Cadiz, the Minister of War ad interim, Don Stanislaus Sanchez Salva dor, was found dead with his throat cut with a razor. The following note, written with his own band, was found in a window of his chamber. “Lite is becoming every day more insup portable to me. 'l'he conviction of this truth ‘ has driven me to the horrible resolution of putting an end to my existence. The only consolation which I can leave to my estim able wife, to my dear children and friends, is, that I descend to the tomb with a con science which does not accuse me of ever having committed crime or offence. I mean to despatch myself with a razor, and 1 men tion this in order that no other person may, in any manner, be accused or implicated Night of the 17th and 18th of June.” The riots at Seville, the sudden invasion of Andalusia by the French, aod other cir cumstances which affected his mind as Min ister of War, are cited as the causes of his suicide. But it was verbally reported that at Seville, he bad betrayed the constitutional cause, and endeavoured to conceal from his colleagues and the Cortes, the approach of the French to that city. The Espectadorof the 21st June says “the government has received information from General Lopez Banos (hat the French werct to ent?r Seville yesterday. The general was marching with his forces towards Huelva. The government is taking every necessary measure for the delence of this island.” Constitutional guerilla parties were form ing in every direction; several of the pro vinces had sent deputations to England to obtain arms ajul ammunition; Ballesteros was besieging Murviedro on the 4th of June and expected to be master of the fort in two days; there was no indication of discord or flexibility in the Cortes. i ne captain or the schooner lorn men tions that the enthusiasm of the militia and people of Cadiz was directed to the Cortes and riot the tft the King. Smyrna papers have been received by the editor of tbe Boston Daily Advertiser, from which the following are extracts:_ SALONICA, APRIL 1, The situation of this place is truly deplora ble. Greeks, Jews, Turks, all tremble be fore the Pacha. He has caused deep ditch es to be dug, into which the bodies of con demned crimnals are thrown, and in the si lence of night it is that exe'cutions are made. Commerce is stopped under this stale of affairs, and in the midst of a sad calm the inhabitants and strangers hide their money, and become feebly with misery. At this moment all the properly of Gregory Kiriaco, who has lied, is selling by public auction._i Accordingly to late advices from the Murea, the Greeks are making there great prepara- j tions, and their fleet was designed to prevent the union of the Algerine and Ottoman fleets. There were fourteen Greek vessels at Tasso, the memory of man cannot recollect a pe riod when so great colj has been felt in Ala cedouia as has been experienced this year. The mountains there are covered with snow, and the road from Constantinople is so bad that several persons have perished there.— The fair at Seres abounds with merchandize, which, tor want ofmouey, remains without purchasers. ALEXANDRIA, MARCH 20. i be notiila of Meheinei Aii is nearly ready 10 sail. It is composed of thirty ves sels, among which is one superb frigate.

Twenty-sis camels have lately arrived here from Constantinople, loaded with mu nitions of war, which are to be sent toEchelle Neuve. It appears that a descent upon Sa mos is again in contemplation. Already, for this purpose, they have begun to con struct vesselsat Cbtngh, near Echelle-Neuve. If Samos is seriously attacked, if the descent is favoured by the Ottoman squadron, as it was at Scio, the same dreadful results may he brought about by similar causes. Samos is far from being able to defend itself like Ispara and Hydra; it is too extensive', and too accessible at too many points. NEW-YORK, JUNE 30. Translations from French Papers. The three nolhern powers have with drawn their ministeh from Stutgard. Such an event naturally excites public attention, and gives rise to various questions. Is this a measure, it is asked, of these three courts merely, or is it an act of ibe Holy Alliance? But if of this latter, why does not France co-operate in it? Is the Holy Alliance dis solved. or is its business divided into depart ment? Are Prussia, Russia, and Austria, which have already reprimanded Spain, and which now cen uie Wirtemburg, char ged wnh the lecturing department? And is France, which has taken no part in these admonitions, and which has been making war whilst the others have contented them selves with simple reprimand, is France to have the more difficult and costly department -of execution* Or, finally, has our timid and i uncertain ministry begged to be excused from Ibis new measure, on the ground of having its hands full with the Spanish job? Persons who pretend Jo be in the secret, have already solved this difficulty. The French minister, it is said, was happily ab sent from Stutgard at the time, and by merely prolonging this absence, he will be no long er at Stutgard, without basing, nevertheless, withdrawn from it. However this may be, it is clear that the rigour esercised towards Wirlemburg, is, as to that cabinet, a minatory declaration, and lhat it is placed without the law of Verona. This act proves that the jurisprudence of the Holy alliance is nol very stable, and that it changes at the very moment when oDe might bate supposed it determinatelv filed. It seemed after ail the acts of that Congress and according to the constant language ad dressed by fhe French Ministry to Spain, it seemed that this maiim at least would be held sacied—“that Kings are the only and true legislators of their people." Every thing seemed to prove that it was an un alterable dogma of the Holy Alliance, that all powers belonged to Kings, and they alone had the right to acknowledge and satisfy the wants of their subjects. This maaim, which reduced nations .Jo the necessity of waiting until the reason of their priuees was matured would seem sufficiently safe for princes who could have cause to dread that their subjects would become awakened too soon. T|us seemed enough to satisfy monarchs; and if matters had stopped here, there re mainded at least one chance for human na ture—a reasonable King, a Marcus Aurelius on the throne. This chance has recently occurred. Some princes of Germany, whose nearer approach lo, and knowledge of Iheir hPnnU mario ilium kn.i .1 .i ■ ■ -- -1 V. nil'll wants, had anticipated their demands by granting them constitutions. Accouling to the doctrine of Ibe Octroi, it was to be pre sumed that these princes would be permitted to contribute in the manner they judged most expedient, to the happiness of their own subjects. Not so: bis doctrine, for which two wars have already been made, those of Italy and Spain, for which human blood has flowed, is no longer certain. The King of Wirtemburg is no longer judged worthy of the high confidence otlhefioly Alliance, he is deemed even less capable than Ferdinand the Seventh of Governing bis kingdom. It will not certainly be said that the King of Wirteniburg is not free; for he it was who ot his own accord, gave a constitution to his subjects. It will not be said that (bis con stitution is the work of modern revolutionists because it is founded on the ancient institu tions of the country—it is old legislation re vived. Thus nothing was wanting to the orthodoxy of the King of Wirtemburg, an tiquity of the law he granted, and tree will on the part ol the princely legislator. All ibe*e titles, however could not save him from excommunication; and, by this example, it i» shown that even the quality of Kings af lords no sufficient guarantee of wisdom in the eyes of die Holy Alliance; and finally, that it is not to the tespective princes, but to that alliance that it belongs henceforth to regulate the destiny of n. tions. Thus, then we now have suspected Kings, who are thrown among the oposition—that is to say, (in the language ot he police,) among the enemies of governments. Thus the divine right is liable to exceptions. This divine right of reigning aud of reigning weil is no longer innate in Kings: it no longer belongs to them by right of birth, but in virtue ot the opinions ol the Holy Alliance: and at Ibis moment it would appear that there is more than onf* mnrnirh In u Imm tlvio ion is not favourable. The king of Portu gal behaves rather badly, and so badly lha! an insurrection agasnsl him seems to be de i sired; the King of England is suspected on account of bis neutrality; the King of Swe den behaves as from his birth might be ej pected; the King ol Bavaria and several prin ces of the Germanic confederation have given rise to doubts; the King of Wirtem burg leaves room for none, and is openly declared unworthy. But what powers so judge them? who are the censurers and who are censured? Austria, Russia and Prussia, which have no constitutions, declare them selves against Portugal, Wirlembnrg, and England, which have. It is then, as has be fore been remarked, a difference between absolute and constitutional powers—it is a coalition ol princes who have only ministers 3gainsl these who have representatives and a press. ***** * **#*#### Constitutionnel.
