known, and the public houses where they hold their sittings. Does the law sleep, that these things are carried on in open day ? Every man whose property is in danger should be sworn in as a constable, and every man also whom he should recommend as trustworthy: when the well disposed are thus combined under the law, for the protection of peace and order, we shall cease to hear of depredations which have too long disgraced the country. And here we cannot refrain from noticing the conduct of those magistrates in the Eastern countries, who capitulated with the agricultural rioters, and not only acceded to the demands of a mob, but even consented to deliver up men who had been apprehended in the act of rioting, and were then in custody. This was as flagrant à breach of duty as it would be in an officer to desert his post, or turn his back upon the enemy in the hour of battle. tion has as much right to look with firmness from its magistrates as from its soldiers and its sailors.

M. Simond concludes his journal with a parallel between the French and English nations, drawn with moderation, discernment, and in the spirit of good will towards both. We cannot conclude more appropriately than by pursuing the parallel, and applying it to the state of England at this time and that of France at the commencement of the Revolution. We have our men of rank, like the Duc de Biron, who act from error rather than ill-design,- but who would do well to remember that the last words which he uttered upon the scaffold were, ' I have been false to my King, my Order, and my God! We have those who unite in themselves wealth, fashion and talent, the gifts of fortune and of nature, like Herault Sechelles and St. Just,—but who like them are corrupted by evil principles and evil desires ; and who, if they were once in blood, would find that sin must pluck on sin ;' we have our literatuli and philosophists like the Girondistes;-ourlawyers like Barnave, only without his eloquence,-our Rabauts de St. Etienne, who would fain exchange the dissenting pulpit for the tribune ;- our professors of humanity like Robespierre, who wrote a treatise against the punishment of death ; our journalists like Camille and Hebert; our Petions and Santerres ; and if the season for indulging such dispositions were arrived, our Marats, Billauds and Carriers would not be wanting : but on the other hand we have a moral and religious people sensible of the blessings which they possess; a gentry who will stand by the law and exert themselves to maintain it; a loyal army and navy; a government which has raised us to the highest pitch of glory; and a constitution which is the admiration and envy of the whole civilized world, which has been transmitted to us by our fathers, and which we will transmit to our children--so help us God!
