It is one which Ï shall tell in sadness, notin
wrath, which you will hear with feelings
swelled by botu. Listen to my words, and
if while I speak, your voice should break
forth in curses upon injury and ingratitude,
remember that I curse not, but furgive.—
You ask what has made me an exile for life,
and a tenant of this wild spot; my answer
is, the ingratitude of others, and my own just
pride. Could I have tamed my own high
spirit, to bear insulting pity and scornful
charity, I would neve? have forsaken the
haunts of men, but I prefer the savage inde
pendence of a mountain hunter, to the pol- ;
ished servitude of a courtly parasite. You
will understand the reason of my exile from
the events of my life : |
" Young stranger, you see before you one
whose fame was sounded tar and wide across
the fields of America; one whose banners ,

| SPAIN.— Madrid, June 1G.— The Gaz. of
, to day contains a decree by which General
Aymeric, Minister of War, is removed from
his post. The portfolio is placed temporal
ily in the hands of the Minister of the Ma
rine, but many are of opinion that M. Cruz;
will be the new Minister. M: Aymeric, at
the same lime loses his offices of Inspector I
General of the Infantry troops and Com-j
mander General of the Hoyalist Volunteers. I
He is nominated Commander General of j
Cadiz; but this is merely a pretext to send r
him to a distance from the capital, as the
French have the authority at Cadiz. It has
been remarked that the affairs of the \Yar
Office are now submitted by the King to M.
| Cruz.

: the lower classes collected in the streets,
! and were harauguedby the Volunteers, who I
with great indignation related to thc "' ,
details of an extensive plot to poison all that
corps. It is certain that a number of men
of one company became suddenly indisposed,
an idea immediately prevailed that they had
been poisoned, but the physicians who visit
ed them unanimously declared that there '
was no sign of poison. 1 hey continue how- ,
ever in thc persuasion that a" attempt has
been made to poison them. I he general
opinion is that they ate unwholesome food
and such as is prohibited by the police. 1 he
news ot this event.having reachedAirtona,
a disturbance took place, in which two con
stitutioilnlists tell victims.
At this moment (6 o clock P. M.) the 1er
mentation continues and increases, but luth- j
erto no excess has been committed. It is I
said that a parley has been opened with the ,
Government, and its issue will determine
the ulterior conduct of the volunteers. Noth-|
ing can present a more lamentable picture J
of terror and desolation than t!ie Spanish

Three of thc Body Guards have been ar- 1

hassador immediately dispatched an extra
ordinary courier to communicate to Ids |
Court this event, which cannot fail to aug- !
ment the unfriendly feeling which already ;
prevails between our Cabinet and that of
Lisbon. All thc members of the diplomatic ;
Body enter so deeply into this scandalous j f
affair, that it set ms impossible that it should !

were voted by the dominons of the United King

from In laud to Canada. Thirty thousand pounds
for this purpose, or a hundred times that amount
will do little good in Ireland. Justice is the onlv
