Viseomte de Noailles rose, and in aglowing spccch isaid, now was the time for thc Afiembly to provc thcir genuine patriotism to thc people, by fhewing them-lelves their affectionate and dinnterested Repräsentatives, devoid of every motive but thc common good ; and, by gxying a great example to nations and to ages, in thc sacrifice of every abufive rieht and privilege whatsoever, incidental to all the Orders, Provinces, Cities and Communities, raise the French name to a lieight unparallel ed ia history, and consecrate their me-mory as worthy of reprefenting the enlightened know-ledge, the courage, the virtues of so great and generous a people. No sooner had he made a motion for the abolition of the Seigniorial Rights, than the whole body of Nobles and Clergy rose as it were by one common Impulse to exprefs their wannest approbation ; and the rnost sublime struggle took place for feveral Kours, of who Ihould'.be thfröremost in pointhig cnlt some frefh offering to Liberty. The Deputies of the Provinces, such äs Franche Comte, Burgundy, Erita-ny, Dauphine, Artois, &c. See. and of the Cities un-der similar eircumstances, df poüeMng peculiar privi-leges and exemptions, joined in the general burst of freedom ; and after an enthufiastic ednversation, not debate, which lasted from seven o'clock till three in the merning of yesterday, the following articles were unanimously agreed on.

Th ese Reiolutions to be printed, and immediately circul at d through the kingdom. There are feveral other Articles, such as the abolition of all unmerited Pensions : all Artizans to be exempt from Taxes, who employ no journeymen, &c. &c. His Majesty, it is faid, signed the articles the next morning. Upon thcir being read on the Exchange, the funds rose z per cent. Wednesday. The sitting of this day was not opened till noon. One of the Secretaries read the resolutions of vesterdav. resolutions that will hold so important a place in the History of France, and the Annals of Man. He was, every instant interruped in reading, by observations that some great sacrince, some grand reform, was for- sotten. It was, in fact, impomble to remember all. ar from coniidering luch observations as impertinent interruptions, the Secretary reeeived and recordedthem with gratitude, in which the Aflembly partook. All the resolutions of yesterday evening again reeeived the sanction of an unanimous vote. On the motion of M. Dupont, it was agreed to re-ftore to the Executive Power, and the Courts of Law, their ordinary functions, and authority sufBcient to establifh order.and restrain violence of every kind 5 for which purpose the regulär troops were to be employed. To the abolition of the exclusive right of the Chace, - has been added that of the right of Fifhing j and liberty granted to every Citizen to kill the game that injures his posiessions. There seemed also an Intention to comprehend, in the abolition of tithes, the parsonage tithes which will be replaced by a proportionale stipend. Thursday. Notwithstanding the second sanction given yesterday to thc whole of the resolutions, it was agreed to exa-mine cach of them separately, in order to find out the best means of carrying them all into execution. After considerable debate on the first article, viz. the abolition of feudal dues, -it was agreed to adopt the following resolution : ' The National Aflembly abolimes entirely the feudal jurisdiction, and of the dues and fervices, feudal and manorial, those which are held by mortmain, both real personal, and by personal service, and those for which any of them has been commuted, are abolilhed with-out any indemnification ; that all the others are re-deemable, and that the price and mode of redemption fhall be fixed by the National Aflembly. The Astern-bly ordains, that such of these dues as are not suppres-sed as aforesaid , fhall continue to be paid till reim-bur fernen t to the pofleflbrs be actually made. After an adjournment from seven till ten at night, the Aflembly, being again met, heard immediately the reportof the arrest of M. de la Vauguyon at Havre. The opinfon of the Committee of Reports was to refer the affair to the Executive Power j and it was adopted by the Aflembly . The Aflembly, after a warm debate, came to the following resolution on the fuppreflion of Dove and Pigeon Houscs : The exclusive right of dove and pigeon houses sr abolilhed. Pigeons ihall be (hüt up, except at certain seasons of the year, to be settled by the communities ; and du ring these seasons they Ihall be confidered as game, St every man may kill them on his own ground." sag ' ' . FaiDMkV, ' ,r The Game Laws came next to be difenfled and the Asiombly, after debay ng the question for some time, resolvea ai iollows : -J ' Th rrr1nsiv verWr nFkiHn'As m nfuten m rens, is equaliy abolilhed, and every proprietor ihall k. l. iinj J j n. , uaww uiw ügui w Mit) ui iiuiriu uc kincu urucuruyeu, on his own posiestions only,- aft-forts of game ; all ran-gerfhips, even those that are royal; and all reservations for pleasure, of whatsoever kind they may be, are abo-iished ; that proVision fhall be made, by means com-patible with liberty and property, for the personal pleasnres of the King. - " And M. le President fhall be directed to apply to thc King for the enlargement of all persons condemned either to the eallies or to prison, for the simple breach of thc game laws, the repeal of banifhment, and the abolition of all criminal proceedings. Before the words of this resolution were final ly settled, it was annonnced to the Members that thc King's Ministers were on their way to the Aflembly. They were fix in number : The Archbifhop of Bourdeaux, the Archbifhop of Vienne, M. Necker, M. de Saint Priest, M. de Montmorin, and the Marshai de Beau-veau. They were admitted into the body of the House ; and it was not without a most pleafing emotion that the observers of men and of events faw, side by side, six Ministers, all men of probity, and esteemed by the nation. The Keeper of thc Seals (Archbifhop of Bourdeaux) spoke first. It was to request that the National Astern-bly would restore to (Zoverhment, feebled and defpifed throughout, the neceflary power to defend the llberty and fasety of the public, every where attacked and vi-olated. This request was preceded and fupported by a defcKpkion rapid, energietic, and touching, of thc evils which at this moment desolate the kingdom. M; Necker next fhewed that, while France was wasted by murder, robbery, and fire, and the contribu-tions every where diminifhed or absolutely refufed, put it out of the power of the kingdom to provide for its necefsities, or fulfil its engagements. He conjured the National Aflembly, while sublime political architects were tracing out the plan of a superb constitution, not to suffer the materiäls to be broken and diipersed. The public sorrow, imprinted on all his features as he spoke, gave his words a force and colouring the most perfua-sive. To look on him, and to listen to him, were equaliy moving. There appeared to be but few of the Deputies who did not feel the necefsity, in order to fave their country, of granting a loaa of thirty millions pro-posed by M. Necker. . This proposition of the Minister was referred to the Committee of Finance. Saturday. The Report was made from the Committee of Finance, that the sum required by the Minister fhould be raised by way of loan, the annuities to be secured by taxes to be devised by the Aflembly. At once to manifest their confidence in the Minister, and to sliew the ability of the nation, the loan was in-stantly fixed at foür and a half per cent. and in half an hour everv livxe of th snm w: snKT-ikf A Cu coming. -Thirty millions of livres is about 1 ,250,000!.

She nuas spared by the meb, out of respeil to the King ! On the day the King went to Paris, she re-quested of him the favour, on her knees, that she might be permitted to aecompany him to Paris, which he peremptorily refufed. As soon as he was gone, she retired alone into her apartments. The officer in waiting, hearing no noisc, pufhed open the door gently, and, seein g nobody in her apartments, ventured to go on further. He went into two other rooms without findsng her. At last, he faw her lying upon a sofa, her hand over her eyes, be-tween her two children. She started as soon as she faw him enter, his annroach beins a lihprtv whirh r other times he would not have dared to take and afkedhim " Are they coming ?" The Officer replied. " No."- In cafe they come," faid the Queen, " make no resistance, but let them enter : only give me iiuuc 01 tneir arnvai, ana 1 inaii go and meet them tinfU - 1 1 1 J 55 . 1 H n ' mxus uy ciuiarcn. oince inat aay ine nas been very quiet and retired, and disturbeef by nobody. When the King came back from Paris, she came to meet him. The Kine faid to her. " MaHam. fmm this very moment I will not permit the family of jroiignac to come again to -ourt ; and the most pre-ciouspresent I can make you, Madam, is to give you this i' and at the fame time gave her the cockade he had on his hat, which had been given him by the pa-triots in the Town -house of Paris. She took it with great coolnefs, and pinned it on her breast. Some days before the taking of the Bastile, the Duke of Orleans went to see the King. As soon as he en tered, the King tumed to him, and faid, " I know that you defire my head you are a second Cromnvell- retire from my preience." The Duke bowed, and obeyed, only saying as he went out, " In a few days your Majesty will have a more just opinion of my cha-racter. You will be better informed Some days after, the King made an apology to the Duke of Orleans. Some most magnificent acts have been done in the prefent emergency in France. There was a demur about a purchase of corn in Holland on the difficulty of an immediate advance of 100,000 livres. A Mem-ber of the Aflembly, M. Guinebaud, a Merchant of Nantes, faid, it was a triste not worthy to occupy the time of the Aflembly. He would himself pay the mo-ney in Holland. The Vifcount de Mirabeau made a voluntary surrender of a pension of 2000 livres a year, granted him by the Court for his fervices in America. All the letters from the country are filled with ac-counts of the most fhocking acts of barbarity. The friends and relations of those who have been facrified by tlie fury of these lawlefs bandittis, feel in their breasts a refentment which, though it may not be Christian, is certainly not unnatural. Some of them have confidered the Duke of Orleans as the mediate cause of all their calamities. Plots, have, in confequence been formed again st the life of this Prince ; and it is faid, that, in all probability, he would have been difpatched on the a6th of last month, at Moufleau, if he had not fortunately reeeived a line from Versailles, warning him that his life was in dan-ger-, and advising him to be constantly on his guard. Two gentlemen went to his Palace that day, and requested the honour of an äüdience. The Prince was , then writing in his doset ; and just as he was going to desire the per fön who had announ-ced the gentlemen, to fhew them in , another perfon entered with a letter, on the cover of 'whien was written To be delivered without a momenr's lose öf time." This letter, which the Duke immediately read, contained the warning above-mentioned. .The Duke resolved not to admit the two Gen tlemen to his presence; butat thefame time he did not think proper tocaule them to be apprehended, ior, by the liveries of their iervants, their fami lies were known, and known to be great and powerfully allied. 3 The Gentlemen appeared to be greaüy disappothted, .and dxQVS-p&sßlW; . ; , i r. - fc Franche Coinpte is still !h dadful confüfion ; and it would seem as if nothing fhort of the extermi nation of the Noblesse would fatisfy thc people, rendered al-rnost mad with rage, occasioned by the horrid tran-laction at Vezoul. The Parliament of Befancon is devoted to destruction. That body having fent Commislioners to enquire into this horrid affair, and take the cognizance of it from the ordinary Judge of the place, was thought to have taken such a step for the sole purpose of fereening the the Lord de Qumcey, a Member of that body, from the punifhment due to so black a crime. Lord Mqffarene was not confined in the Baßile, but in the Hotel de Force, a prison for debtors ;-y-nor is the report true that he was liberated by the populace of Paris, the manner in which he obtained his liberty is as follows. Infpiredby the conduct of the people who were forcing their way to freedom from the limits of monarchy, Lord M. and twenty-five other perfonz were determined to make an effbrt for theirs from the walls that confined them, and, with a resolution which nothing but such a situation as theirs could produce, they forced their way through seven doors fortified in the strongest manner, with bars, bolts, locks and cramps to the outer courfj upon entering which, they found a body of scventy soldiers planted there to pro-tect the prison. This circumstanCe, at first, occasioned no small consternation among the prisoners : but by expostulating with the soldiers in a proper manner, and perfuading them, that they were fent merely to protect the prison from any assäult from without, The pnioners were permittco to pais to JiiDerty. The following is an authentic Copy of the Petition which the National Aflembly have ordered to be de-posited as an original paper among thcir archives. To the National .4setnbly of France.
