them to protect their own property, every plan forexciting the people of Germany to rise in a mals, appears to be altogether nugatory and impracticable. .. . . . .

The imperial journey through the Netherlands, though followed by misfortune, was instructive to the august traveller. His good sense enabled him to distinguish between outward pageantry and real intention.

In his address to che Netherlands, dated Tournay, 26th of May, 1794, he obferves, that the mass of the enemy which has precipitated itself on Belgium, rendering the danger more pressing, it became more neceflary for the in.' habitants to employ all the means in their power to check the operation of that immense and formidable body, by all the force which it was possible to collect and combine.

Hitherto the hereditary states of the empire have furnished the major part of the troops, which have protected the Belo gic provinces, so interested in the success of the war, which might unhappily be attended with their annihilation and total ruin, unless they would agree to furnish men to assist in defence of those provinces.

He demanded forces to defend their own country; while they hesitated to grant what might seem to their sovereign so reasonable a request. Disgusted at this disappointment, he returned with his military. Mentor, colonel Mack, to Vienna; whence he has lately issued a public memorial to the several states of the empire, exhorting them to contribute largely in men and money, towards the defence of the old state of things against Gallic innovation. As a proof of his lofles aŭd the existing danger, he says, that two thirds of the empire might be considered as already conquered, and the enemy was every where triumphant.

: P O L A N D.. This unfortunate country is still contending for her libera ties, without a fingle ally either to compassionate or affist her, against the two rapacious powers of Prullia and Russia.

In May last, the levying of men was carried on with suclirapiility, that it was then supposed the Polish patriots would foon amount to 100,000 men in arms.

The bishop of Livonia, M. de Kc frakowski, has been hanged at Warsaw, before the church of the Bernardins.

The king of Prusia arrived about the same time at Pozen, and was to take the field with general Faurat on the 28th of May.

On the 15th of June, the king of Pruflia received intelligence at his head quarters near Michalowo, that the city of Cracow surrendered at discretion to his general De Elsner.

In June, general Kosciusko suffered a defeat by the Prusfians near Szezekocrin ; and a few days afterwards, he published an account of this battle, in which he fays, ' The Prussians commenced a heary connonade on our 'lines, which was answered with great effect by the batteries on our left wing. The Prussian twenty-four pounders passed us at a great distance, while each discharge from our battes ries tolu : a tremendous fire was kept up on both sides, and from this it was easy to form an opinion of the immense frumber of the enemies artillery, together with the largeness of the calitre. Under the protection of this fire, the enemy advanced and overpowered the Poles by numbers.'".

By later intelligence, we find that the Prussians are about to attack the Poles, who are intrenched in force in the via cinity of Warsaw,

.: ITALY. The two hundred thousand pounds a-year, paid by Great Britain to the king of Sardinia, have neither enabled him to recover his lost dominicns, nor have rendered him in vulnerable to new attacks from the French. A part of his territory has for some time been defended by Austrian troops. A disfatisfaction prevails in his capital and in the island of Sardinia, on account of the unpopularity of the war with France, and fome conspiracies against him have been discovered at Turin.

In April last a conspiracy was discovered in Naples; and more than three hundred persons were arrested, among whom were several of the first distinction.

With respect to Tuscany, after having been forced from her neutrality, the confederated sovereigns have apparently acquired but little advantage from her allistance.

GENE V A. • A revolution has lately taken place in this city, of which the following is the principal outline :

On

On the 18th of July, M. M. Soulavie and Merle, conmillioners from the French convention, refdent at Geneva, gave a grand dinner to the principal members of a society, intitled, The Club of the Mountain, consisting of the most violent patriots of that city. On breaking up at an early hour in the morning, the members of the club had recourse to arms, and arming the populace at the same time, took poffefsion of the gates and arsenals. They next proceeded to select a revolutionary committee, composed of seven perfons, by whom every person, inimical to their interests, was instantly apprehended, and put into confinement, to the amount of nearly a thousand.

The revolutionary committee proceeded to form a plan for the new government. The next day this plan was approved of, and the revolutionary tribunal elected, on the 2ist, by about 3000 voices.

It must be observed, that at the time of this revolution, there were no French troops in the environs of Geneva. In what manner, therefore, or by what influence this infurrection has taken place, we are still ignorant. It is cero tain that the people there have for many years been dissatisfied with the aristocracy. Later accounts lead us to hope ibat the dispute is at present in a train of amicable accommodation, and this we most sincerely with. The cause of lie berty is ever disgraced by anarchy; and the reform of abuses is a very different process from the overthrow of all government and subordination. This, perhaps, in most countries might be effected without danger, were the ruling powers less tenacious, and the reformers less violent than they too commonly are,
