Friday Evening, Aug. 25,1848. the stat: or tunope. Whin tbo last weekly biv ,mr tailed for Liverpool) drums were beating in Ui > In ucb capital, cavalry were trotting along the iu important military 1 force wr.s drawn up on the lface de lit Concorde. In j the more remote quartern, a great deal of agitation was visible : a procession of the wives and children of the insurgent prisoners was wending its way to (he Nati- . onal Assembly?they were, however, prevented ap" i proaching, and dispersed without disorder, but the ! next day. and the next day, and, at the present moment, an unusual display 01 troops is made in Paris, binister rumors, of every description, are ail out. and I the one which seemingly par.oon of the greate.-t con- i istency, tlrat a legitimist conspiracy, to place ' iienry V. (the Duke of bordeaux) on the throne, was ' on the evo of bursting, in the shape of a rising. The veritable cause of the nuu-ual display of troopr rosy, 1 -however, be ascribed more justly to the publication of ! the documents concerning the insurrections of May 1 and June, und wbicb great iy implicate so many mem hers of the ex-provisi' nal ^overnioeut of the republic. | A single glance at these documents will suffice to con- I Tince any man that hatred and scenes ot violence ' must result from them t)? nials, recriminations, ' personal attacks, will,doubtles*,follow. M. Turk having deposed that M. liaime said that the heads of 000 repre- | jentative* should fall, hat been called out by the latter. ' The day after the publication of the documents. Louis j J31anc ru?hed to the tribune, and. pale with auger, .protested against some if the accusations brought ' against him The deposition of Clienti. the ; .shoemaker, is very curious* The errest of Caussidicre was ail but dtoided the following day. In addition to the intense interest of the documents themselves, the deposition cf each member of the late gorcmuieut,has a peculiar private interest of its own. The character of the mau is traced in each deposition with his own haud. And what an amount of self-love and vanity is here laid bare to the eyes of the world! Thesentiincntul-pbilosophical Lauiurtine, the rough aoldier Cavaignao. the clear testimony of Arago, the unreserved communications of tihenu, the oumer, and guarded language of the Ledru Rollins and Louis Blaucs, are all unique in their way Ledru Rollin enteredinto a written engagement with George S.inil to provide circulars fer the republ c. These documents will complete the full and excellent history of the revolution in France,published by the New i'ork Herald. The debate on these documents commences this day at Paris; and for what vu knew here, Paris may at this very moment be in an uproar ; f look to your telegraph. J The repeated attempt* made by t'.e ultra republicans, and by n ( portion cf the regular supporters of the government, to burke the whole affair, hy hating tlie paper.* simply referred to tbu law offioersof tbu republic, having signally tailed, there is no# no t possibility of avoiding the dis ussiou altogether; hut since they t cannot suppress the delate, tlio same partita are deti nnlmid to < make a last effort to cnrlail it, and thereby to rt nder it aa innocuous as tho circumstances will admit. For this MMM it is said 1 that, under the pretext that tlie f v. rue ,.i aaaavt be accounta- y bit for the tranquillity of Paris if t'.a debate slioiild lie a pro. traded one. General t-avaiiinae,. r -ne .1 the inetuls.'rs ot the government on his part, will mow that the Assembly d i not ad. t joum until tho affair be disposed of, and that, if necessarv, the , \ Assembly sit for tiiat puipose all night. Ihe (MM oh this motion is evident. The whole of the tirst portion of the debate * will bo oocupied with the arguuien'e for the defence of the t parties iuoulpatad?namely, 11 at. Ledni Kollin, Louis Blanc, and ( Causaldieru, whose speeches will necessarily 1*> long, and it is cat- i cnlated that, alter suvh a dose, the utmost the Assembly will lis- , ten to will be a abort speech from M. Odilon Uarrot, as r resident I of the Committe , or from K. Bauciurt, as tlie author of the re- i port, aftir whieh the vote will lie taken under the impression ' made by the three firs', orators. Whether tliree tatties will lie smocentu I or not. remains to be even; but it is said that Genrai 1 Cavaignac is as anxious for their success as the most zjalon. of < ihe rod republicans, and that the excitement which the mili'ary display which has been made lor the last few days in tlie streets of Paris, is more with that view than with the view of suppresing the pretended legitimist conspiracies. The energetic, yet pacific, line of conduct adopted by Oeneral Cavaignac in the Italian question, bos earned for him the esteem of all parties in France. and all statesmen of Europe. Educated on the battle field, j his only fortune hit sword, we bsbold the warrior adTooating peace, and restraining the belligerent ardor of civilians, and the author of harmonic* rcligieuscs, and odes to peace. The English government has officially recognised the French republic. Lord Normanby has presented his letters of credit as Ambassador of England. M. Gustavo d? Beaumont, the French ambassador to ourcourt, has arrived here. The repressive measures against the press in Paris till continue, La Reprisentant du Ptuple, the journal of M. Proudbcn; Le Vr aie Repuhliijue, the journal of M Thort-, Le P> re DucMne, Le Lampion, and > Ihe (lazeite de Prance (editor, M. de (ienoude), have ! been suppressed The repressive laws in France are I much more severe thau under Louis Philippe; but his ! were rather preventive laws?the distinction is quite discernable. Cavaignac never hesitates?hesitation is I often worse than a fault. The decree for suppression ' Simply states, that the journals in questiou are sup- i pressed because likely to create fresh disorders in tile 1 republic. As n-gards the Angle-French mediation in Italy, j -he following extract, from La Preste, is ull that can can be said upon the subject ; conjecture as to the ! likely result, would be a wide field Any Incident ' may give a different turn to the negooiations : ? In indicating in our numbers of the !Uh and loth of August, the 1 bases of the mediation uttered by France and England, for the pur. I poseof nrrivit.g nt a p;i<ific solation of the affairs of Italy, we <>i? nerved, that the two mediating powers reckoned on the concourse ?f Germany to bring Austria more promptly to an arrangement ! which w< u.d be honorable to the army of Italy. The overtures of j France and England have been very favorably received, as far as the priui iple goes, by the Central -German Power resident at Trankf >rt. W c say, as far as the principle goes, l.evuuse we knowthat the mission wilh which the Baron d'Aodrlan (the Pcette eems not to have known libnnt Kauincr./is charged by the j Central German Boner to the French and English governments, \ has for its object to modify essentially the conditions pr-posed by the mediating pow rs.

One of the rumor? of the two last days is that a revolution has broken out simultaneously In Russia and Foland; that a provisional government has been esta blisbed at St. Petersburg: Warsaw bombarded; the F.mperor fled to t ronstandt. The Oermau paper# of the last two days are full of rumors. The Kueeian frontier is ao hermetically sealed, that things do not transpiro so soon there as elsewhere I believe the rumor, however, to he at least premature. The Colopnr Gmrlte, of the J'id, repeats the intelligence. with additional particulars; but nothing ofllcinl or authentic has transpired. From Denmark the news, ss regards peace, is not Satisfactory. Those wno entertained fears that the Sohleswlg. llolstein affair would not be brought to a speedy and , pacific conclusion, have been justified in their antlcl- . patfons. Hopes of peace are at end for the moment. Jlearosrk bas rejected the conditions offered to her by the Frankfort and Prussian plenipotentiaries. These t conditions were, in fact, of such a nature. It. appears, as to render it impossible for Denmark to agcept them, | and are regarded as inadmirslblo by F.ngland. A note from I.oid ralmeraton, similar to that presented by ' Lord Cowley to the Central Power, was laid before the .Prussian Cabinet by Lord Westmoreland, on the ore- j ming of the 20th Instant, In which the British government expresses its regret that the above mentioned cohditions are such as it cannot support with com- j Won considerations of justice to Denmark. M Arsgo has also presented a note from his govern- | ment to the Prussian Foreign Minister, in which a similar view of the Oerman-lJanish question Is trken by France as by F.ngland, and expiessns a hope that nuoh terms will be offered as wi,l enable Denmark to assent to an armistice, it being, iu faet, the determination of the two governments to prevent any further aggression upon the territory rf the Danish sovereign.

I liave veiy little news to transmit to you by the 81 present steamer, as few arrivals have taken place ^ here. I wish, however, to recur to the remarks I ? made in my last week's despatches relative to the " Italian question?a momentous one, and one on 01 which the peace of the civilized world depends. jj.' The capitulation of Milan is confirmed, unu that in city is now occupied by Austrian troops, and the w King of Sardinia and the Piedmontese forces have re-crossed the Tessin: Charles Albert being employed in re-organizing his harrassed and ^ beaten army. You will getfull details of the ope- ot rations of the Austrian and Sardinian armies in the London papers, and you will likewise leurn o* ivith satisfaction that an armistice of forty-five P<1 lays lias been agreed upon, the basis of which is the surrender of Peschiera and Venice to the Austrians. and. in fact, u ?/?/u nun mitr Int/mii the same territory being transferred to Austria ?i pt was in possession of that power previous to the tto ?.\pu!sion of its troops from Milan and LiombRrdy. Thus tar, diplomacy has done something by put- J* ling a stop to hostilities for the interests of fiutna- . inly and lor the sake of King Churles Albert; and [? it remains to be seen, whether the Cabinet of flI Vienna will be disposed to accept the terms which fn; it is understood have been offered by the British nrid French governments. er There can be no doubt that the conduct of Lord lR I'alnierstoii bus all along been weak and vacillating th in the Italian question. He refused to mediate when he could have done so with positive advanage to the Italian cause, and now seeks to offer Ai hose terms to Austria which are likely to be reused, but which would have been gladly accepted when the Austrian army had sustained some reverses. It is not too much to say, that it is rather mlikely Austria will now elect to retire from a erritory which formerly belonged to her, which ivns sccuicu 10 iter oy ireniy, arm which sue lias i ust now reconquered. All people hope, of course, hat French and English mediation may be sue m' :essful, and that the horrors of war may he averted; P? >ut 1, for one, um not at all sanguine that |>eace can ie preserved?at all events, if the present conjoint an iroposals ol France and England be insisted upon. st< l'he subject is beset with difficulty, and the occur- j ( rences of the past week have not dispelled those ti, doubts which pervaded my communication of the m, llthinst. The forty-five days'armistice will allow b* time for negotiations and arrangements between A\ I'uris, London, and Vienna, andT fervently hope wj that the means employed will be successful. al I recommend to your particular consideration c? the speech of Mr. D'Jsraeli, in the House of Com- * ( mons, on the Kith instant, in reference to this very tl question. The Italian and Danish war is carefully tl viewed by the speaker, and a brilliant and satirical r.ijiott I* made of the stupid and dangerous policy at of Lord Pahnerston. His lordship's reply was it it lame one, and you will necessarily come to the conclusion that the difficulties and gravity of the J" situation have not been underrated by me, and you will moreover affirm that the preservation of peaca tj in Europe, even now, hangs on a slender thread. The entry of the Austrians into the Human States, and the bombardment of Bologna, have 01 much romplieated the aspect of the negotiations, nd it will be observed that the news of these as vents produced a fall botli in the English and French funds. The chartists are beginning to show themselves 0< again in London, and in various parts of the manu- W] factoring districts. In London, yesterday, nearly ti< twenty men were suddenly arrested?they were ti. well armed, and some considerable quantities of ?c arni9 and ammunition were discovered. The authorities in London evidently felt alarm, and ex- *' petted a movement, because it is known that the military quartered in Buckingham Palace, the d( mint, Bank of England, dee., were kept under arms all night, ana held ready to act in rase of tb need. It is supposed the chartists contemplated a ed rising, and a simultaneous seizure of the public ?t edifices. I need scaicely tell you that a warm re- ?? ception is prepared lor these rash and misguided men, w henever they are fooliBh enough to attempt disturbances; they nave riot a shade of a chance C1 cf carrying their measures by physical force, be- ul cause the lriends of order, comprising the middle in and upper classes, are opposed to them. Some to u;.?,,ri.u.,^o ?...u ... A ?u.? ?1-- i .? ... and a policeman shot, and others wounded. The Knglish government is sorely beset with dillicul- }" tit s? Ireland, in a state of quasi rebellion, and only kept quiet by a tremendous lorce of 50,000 cc soldiers? the whole of the northern part of Lng- t0 land disaffected and ripe tor a rising; and a large te body of desperate men in London prepared to obey in the incautious counsels of chartist agitators. In connection with these menacing facts, 1 di would allude to the bad weather which has been ni experienced for some weeks, |and to the injury done to the crops by continuous rains, added to g0 which, the almost gene'al failure of the potato i(j crop. This lamentable state of aH'aiis will induce m a great amount of misery and destitution amongst it the laboring population in the northern and manii- of factoring districts, and I fear that the coming tL winter may be marked by disturbances of a serious character, induced by the sad condition of the lower classes. In Ireland, the picture is fear- ^ fill to contemplate, and tar-seeing would be the man who could foreshadow a tythe of what may w< he expected to arise in that island, where starva- m Hon is almost staring in the faces of millions of ct men, who will, by it, be goaded to dee|>eration. The steamship Jupiter arrived here on the 15th, from Gibraltar, Oporto, Lisbon, Arc., and her J? dales were, Gibraltar, Aug. 4 ; Cadiz, 5 ; Lisbon, d. }?: Oporto. 10; Vigo, 11. A talse tranquility still continued to prevail in ?j Portugal; but, in proof of the information I have pi previously communicated to you from this coun- h< try, and of the discontent which prevails, I may tell you tlint the newa received by the Jupiter was I" to the efiect that the Queen had been fired at': and ;e it is supposed, had the Queen been killed, a gene- j" ral rising of the Patulea party would have oc- a, currcd. The shot, however, did t ot take effect, tr and an intended revolution was postponed. The city of Lisbon is to be lighted by gas, a si French gas company having been formed. Many hi of the lamps were lighted up the day before the tl Jupiter left. | 9.' At Gibinltar, on the 2d August, the following quotations of American produce were current.?

There are some ftw certificates of tha old loan which have not yet been presented, and which probably belong to some persons whose absence has prevented their applying for the subscriptions to the new loan, to which they wore entitled, as holders of such certificates. There is no doubt that, on a proper representation of the circumstances, these holders will still be allowed to subscribe for the amounts to which their certificates would hare entitled them. W Y ( ING EDITION.?SUN The last weekly balance sheet of the Bank of France p to tbe evening of the 17tb, published in the it/on/ tur of the 18th, shows a more favorable position o bat establishment ?s regards the stock of bullion. Or he 2Cth of .April it was 88,000,000; it has now reached RH.OOO ?00, the highest amount it has reached sine* be revolution of February. The l-suea now amount d 364 000,000, after having, on tbe 25th May, exoeedti 403 000.t00. When one sees that even here, where e are more than ordinarily prudent in this respect, be most cartful financiers acknowledge that the dilution of the bank in the proportion of itd bullion to tstiemes is altogether normal, we are rather led to xprets surprise lhat the bank has uot resumed cash aymcnts. since, in the opinion of some, it would do auch for credit; but g'ill^we must admit thepropricty f over-caution at such a moment as theprescnt; apart rem this, the account does not show a very favorable tate'of ulliiirs The account current of the treasury as, during the week, increased nearly 8,000,000; hut his sum is not equal to tbe amount paid iuto the treaury for the first instalme i t of the loau. The accounts urrentcf other parties, have been reduced 6,000 000; he uupaid bills, (not protested) amount to about be tome sum? 010 030 francs. The protested bills imain at nearly flic tame amount?30.000.000 'heae are unfavorable symptoms; but what is till worse, is the successive diminution in the disHints. On the 22d Maich, the bank held paper it ad discounted in Paris to the amount of 245,000,000 ; hireas tbe present account shows an amount oj P.COO.000 onlv : and the blanches he.d DaDer dis nunted by tbem on the Iflth May for 174.000 000, and ow for only 132,(.'00,000. This difference is the in out filleting. and sure proof of the stagnation of oouilerce, and the foiling off of manufactures. Instead r lending the State, a* it has already done. 50,000.0(10 n treasury bt.ii . and eugagiug to make an addiiioual an of 16o.000.000 on treasury buns and trusts of the (ate, whirh ih not the end of its institution, if it nd come, forward more liberally to assist ould hare better Bern d the community and probably ith greater profit to itself. Tbe conclusion of the loan has built up a foundann of credit fur tbe republic; but it still requires con lidation. This must be effected by a policy, foreign nd domestic, which has in view tbe common interests ' ail. and by a well regulated system of finance. The >urse feels tbnt, as regards foreign policy, the governent appears to be taking the right course, in proeding in the path ofconciliation and peace, exhibit1 by its conduct as regards Italy and Austria. The leeches of General Cavaignao, iu tbe Assembly, and ' Lord 1'almerston in tbe House of Commons, hare "educed much confidence in tbe market as to a reirn to good intelligence between the great Kuropean iwtrs. and tbe probability of a firm alliance between le Krencb and Knglish cabinets, and. with these, the curing general peace in Europe. This view of foign matters has operated to keep up the price of nds against the tendency to depress them, iromthe ternal position of affairs, arifing out of the publicaon of the evidence of the Insurrection Committee, id the fears entertained of the consequences of the rthcoming debate.

The past week hag been full of incidents, and, it sat be admitted, of incidents of the highest iinrtanoe. As I hare already informed you, the treasury loans, id savings' banks deposits, were to be converted into 3ck. The former amounted to 246 millions, and the tter to 8u0 millions. Besides these, the amount of at portion of the new loan on which all the iustaleuts have been paid up in advance, and wtilcb has en issued to the subscribers, amounts to 50 millions, 'ith all these, it was apprehended that the Bourse ould be inundated with stock, and that consequently i immense fall would take place?but whether that >niidence is more established, or that the holders of oek retain it until prioes advance, it is certain that >mparatively little of these amounts have found leir way to the Bourse, where there is not more than ie usual quantity of floating slock We may congratulate ourselves on this result?it jgurs well for the financial plans and position of the epublic. Br ides, it is not without reason that confU ence is somewhat restored ; commercial atrairs are ?ginning to look up ; some considerable ordors have sen received by manufacturing and commercial ouses in Paris, and every thing authorises us to hope iat the forthcoming winter may not be so disastrous i some pessimists have predicted. The question of an armed intervention in Italy is ie of those which has occupied very seriously the tcntion of the Bourse this week, and very seasonably, i Charles Albert may now be considered to have been iinpletely deflated. I shall examine the question lely in a linaucial point of view. The general feeling in Europe, since the revolution February, will not allow us to suppose that a war ith Austria would not induce on European contiagraun. We cannot but see that there are now two pares?the liberals, who have all rallied round, if not dually, at least morally, the banner of February, and ie absolutists, who anxiously watch everv opportunity, tu wouiu auopi every means to regain ine power ins iey hare lort. .As wo are desirous to abstain from irrying out propagandism, our policy Is clearly to on avour to maintain peace with all other nations, Unas we be compelled to assist any nation in preventing le independence she has conquered lruin being wrestI from her. This is as nearly as may be eur situion as regards Italy, if we declare war on Austria, id it would, in effect, be so to do?if we aid Italy driving the Austrians out of Lombardy. we should ien have, as we had in 1793, war with all Kurope. To ipport the expenses of this war we must augment our penditurer, whilst with decreasing commerce and maifactures, our income would be materially diminished, t the present state of our treasury, we could not hope meet this double difficulty of increased expending and decreased income: we mnst then find funds some other manner. Taxation would give us noting, for now in time of peace, common taxation lives us with a considerable deficit, and we cfould id no means of extraordinary taxation. By loan we iuld do nothing; since, if we have even been obliged contract a loan on disadvantageous terms, the rms would be ruinous, if a loan were not altogether lpracticable, in case of war. A forced loan would ail us little, as may be known by the financial contion of Krance for the last three years. Our only eans then would be the issuing of assignats, and the ^sequences of this would be too evidently deplorable be seriously entertained for a moment. All these reaniegs have been held at the Bourse; and,therefore,the ea of an armed intervention is not considered in the oney market at all prchable, and confidence that will not be undertaken, (founded on the good sense the executive power and the national assembly) is, erefore, generally entertained at the Bourse.? eports, too. of an understanding having been come between Knglsnd and Krance. for diplomatic indention, have much tended to remove tne fears that ere at first held on this subject. The proceedings in the assembly, during the last eek. have had their influence on the market. I do Dt allude to the proposition of M. Prudhom. so suo'ssfully scouted by M. Thiers?It is altogether too abird to engage any serious attention, and too extravaint te occasion any alarm; but the mlsunderstandigs between the committee of finances and the mlnter on the subject of the tax on mortgages, the withrawal by the minister of that project, and the anmi nnamiit.4 nf an e..

He was sub-editor of ! w the Nation, and a man of extensive literary acquirements, which might, if devoted to a butter cause, have gained for the possessor a more enviable reputation a than that which now attaches to his name and for- ti tunes. Mr. Magee first tied to Scotland, where he was jv recognized by a friend, and warned of the danger of u long remaining there (in Glasgow), as the police were D on his track. Taking the hint, he was next day in- p visible, and it ia believed, that by this time, he is safe s in America, where he was previously well known for b some years as editor of one of the Boston newspapers. Mr. Devin Reilly. another of the insurgent chiefs, is p reported to have bad equally good luok, and that he. i] too. is among the fortunate missing: but there is no g, certainty of his destination beyond the seas. He was gi present with the insurrectlonary^orce assembled at b bllevenamon. These gentlemen were only deemed worthy of a not very flattering notice in the Hue ami tl Cry; hut I doubt mnch whether the whole band of tl conspirators contained two more dangerous men, or ol twin more likely to do mischief in the event of a pro- T traded struggle with the British government.

L'mbrella-makers, pastry cooks, an agent for wet-nurses, a sceue-puinter, a milk-man. innumerable men of letters (I), and not a | few branded galley-slaves, formed this motley host of I the professors of libeity, the lords of equality, the , chartered libertines who were sent forth like destroyI ing spirits to pervert the reason, to excite the passions, and to ilemorull/.e every honest sentiment Of die rrrucu pcupiw. iiu wuum'r not* prumgaiH hutcuI turerg, recking trcm the club* of Paris. raise J wherever i they pasted the abhorrence of alt who were not al- . ready degraded by the revolutionary cont'ig on to the level of their fraternal Infamy. Meanwhile in Paris the press, freed from all the restrictions of law and from all fiscal obligations, gave the rein to every thing grotesque, and absurd, and ferocious. Since the i'-tih of February no less than 171 new journals poured forth their folly, their malignity, and their extravagance upon the nation, and before the cannon of June | had checked these saturnalia, two papers, respectively i entitled ' VInctndit" and ' /.* Sanguinaire," seem to have reached the furthest limit in these ephemerides of | horror. What, meanwhile, were the government dol ing .' They themselves were contributing no incon: sideiuble share to a species of literature which polluted ] the very wails of Paris A female writer, whose energy I of style is only surpassed by her avowed contempt j tor the decencies of social life, and for the laws of | God and man, was expressly hired by the home de' paitmunt to frame these HulUtins de to Republiqut, some of which openly threatened the National Assembly with a repetition of the popular exploit of February, whilst others insinuated their baleful and dishonest influence into the very core of soclsl life, and Into the deep scats of the domestic afT# lions A cabinet minute has luckily been preserved whloh show* that the diurnal revision of these felicitous productions was assigned in rotation to each member of the government, and that they divided with ridiculous precision, the h? iivy burden of this literary responsibility. With this abundant supply of tuition, and this unbounded amount of audacity, M. Ledru Iloliin and | his associates flattered themselves that they could make all Frenchmen as thorough republican* as themselves in six week*; but if the experiment failed, and the Assembly when elected proved to be less advanoed in the theories which are henceforth to govern French society, it is evident that the republican party had all along been fully prepared to destroy it by violence ? The 15th of May was the attempted execution of that project, and for three hours it might seem to have succeeded. After the temporary dispersal of tho Assembly on that day, harbes repaired to the Hotel do Vllle, where his first act was to write with his own band a declaration of instant war against Russia aud (Jormany. if tbey refused the immediate reconstltution of Poland ' M. Ledru Koltin had, however, long beforo practised with greater disingenuousness tho same species of fe! reign policy. The expeditions of Belgium. Southern Uermuny.and Savoy, are now proved to have been undertaken with bis fuil knowledge and approval; and money and arms were supplied to the wretches who are now on their trial at Antwerp for a piratical invasion of the Belgian territory, from tho stores of the French government, and by the authority of thu ministers. These details might be infinitely multiplied from the strange report before us. but they amount to no more, | after all, than a sickening display of the worst and [ meanest ol the hituiau passions devouring in an evil ' hour the vitals of a great country. It will remain the great wonder of all time how it came to pass that for those 1 -U days the French nation remained, as it were, passive under a government base and far more cowardly than any of the snoguiDary exhalations of the ' first revolution, which prolonged its miserable existence only by tampering with the mob through the clubs, and betraying alt the other interests of the . I State The more it Is considered, and the more its secret history is known, the more extraordiunry will the existence of such a government appear, it subsisted without military strength, without Integrity, without political talent, supported only by an occasional bit of tawdry eloquence, but. above all. by 'he grovelling fear of an entire people, which fell flat to the :?rth : whilst the Simoon passed over the land.
