LUCIEN UONAPAU'IK. "Gf.xeva, April 25. i send you a copy of the document which contains the determination of the Allied Powers, to prevent the escape of Lucien Bonaparte to the United States of America, and those ulte rior plans which the discontented refugees' propose tor the purpose m making - oi .America a theatre of revolutionary ideas, and a new field for ainbition and intrigue. 'The principles of justice, order ?va legitimacy that govern the poweis of Lurope, will always disconcert the machinations of the seditious to disturb the peace, and will oppose a bar. ier to their spirit of ra-iim. and their nlans of usurpation. The first a i d most effmacioiR information of this haziness was derived from the zeal and activity of the Spanish Government, well ini' t nied of these plots by exact account received both in Knrope am!

The port was blockaded without, ard an embargo within, which left me no alternative but to wait till a, change of affairs. On the 18th of this -month the Patriots abaudoned the city and tied in all directions, some Of their leaders hanging them selves and others shooting themselves ; and the same dav the fortifications were taken possession of hy the inhabitants, or rather tiie Poituj.uese sailors from the merchant ships in the harbor. A scene of great confusion took place; but fortunately no lives were lost. Alter the admiral of the tleet came on shore, some kind of order wS restored. Nothing of busiuess has been done since, nor will be for G or 7 days to come, as there will be days of feasting and rejoicing at the downfall of the Patriots.

He is a remarKaoie nanu some, well built man ; with a broad chest, square shoulders, and an appearance of great muscular strength and activity. As a soldier he has certainly shown himself to be both valorous and skilful in council he is shrewd and judicious. Moderation and a desire to keep aloof from the affairs of neighboring states, are the peculiar characteristics "of his administration. His conversation is familiar, condescending and calculated to leave the most favorable impressions on the minds of. those who arc admitted to his presence. V ith tiie penetrating eve of a physiognomist, he appears to read the characters of men : and he is said to be remarkable accurate in the opinion he forms of them. HU indt-fatiuahle attention to business, makes him acquainted with every transaction in bis kingdom; and a retentive memory enables him to treasure them all up. In fine, he is master of ail details and persons or things, v.ith whom or with which he is once acquainted, he is never known to forget, in his administration of public affairs, he appears to be governed by ireat caution; waiting, we suppose, till the independence of Hay t i shall be recognized, by the various powers, before he executes those plans for tiie ameliorating the con dition of his people, which he is known to. have in view. Hitherto bis task, has been arduous indeed ; and some allowance is to be made for his imperfections, when we consider the heterogenous nature of those materials which he has had to mould into order and subordination. , If severity has sometimes armed the lash of punishment.

This opinion heinjr common to all the ir.embei of the Conference, it has been icH'lved to consign it in th protocol of the day, in order that it may be made known to the four Courts,; and may .'produce a determination on their , part upon this subject.

These are hung up, one abcrve another, round the room, and those slaves, who are able to pay for the luxurv of such a bed, are alone admitted." l ain happy in wanting a comparison, in any part ot the world vvheie 1 liave been, for this abominable prison, and those deadly cells ; but, if they had a little more light, ! think they' would most resemble a bouse where the negroes of the ' West-India islands keep their pigs. 1 must add, that the pestilential smell made Mr. Stan-bury so ill that he nearly fainted ; and Dr. MConnel and myself were not much less affected. .' The food of tbe slaves consists of two black loaves of half a pound each, which is their daily bread; neither meat nor vegetables do they ever taste, those excepted who work at the Marino, who gettwd olives per day with their bread, and others at the Spanish hospital, which the Spanish government to this day supports, as well pcihapsas it is able. In visiting this hospital, the doors of which were covered with uimappy beings of every age aud either sex, 1 saw some men who looked almost sixty, and some children who could not be more than eiht years old: the r whole' of them had their legs swelled and cut in such a horrible manner, that we all thought they could not recover. There also we sa v some young Sicilian girls,. and some women. One poor woman burst into teais ; told us that she was the mother of eijit children, and desired us to look at six. ol them, who had been slaves with her for thirteen years, We left these scehes of horror, and, in going into the country, 1 met 'the slaves" returning from their labour.

SoiuHutofcS it is produced a monster, and licked into sh tpe ; at other times comes into the world completely formed, and is spoiled in the licking. It is often born an infant in the regular, way, and requires time to matuteit; and oiten it sees the light in its fuil growth, but dwindles away by degrees." ' No wonder if an infant so miraculous in its birth should be destined for great ad-ventUi es" " It cau sink a mountain to a molehill, and raise a molehill to a mountain ;" hath piesided tor many years at committees of elections ; can wash a blackamoor white make a saint of an ai-.eist and a patriot-of a profligate."- ' 1 his goddess lia s with a huge looking-glass in her hands to dazzie the crowd and make them see, according as she turns it, their rum in their interest, and their interest in their ruin." "There is one essential point wherein a political liar differs from others of the faculty : that be c.uju to have but a short memory, which is necessary according to the various occasions he meets with every hour of differing from himself, and sw earing to both sides of a contradiction, as be finds tiie persons disposed, with whom he hath to deal." " Few lies carry the inventor's mark, & the lo-'St prostitute enemy to truth may spread a thousand without being known for tbe author. Besides, a the vilest writer hath his readers, so 1 he greatest liar hath his believers; and it ' often happens, thai if a lie be believed only for an hour, it hath done its work, aud there is no further occasion for it. Falsehood flies, and truh comes limping after it ; so that when men come to be undeceived, it is too late; the jest is over, and the tale has had its effect." In another department of Swift's political writings, he thus describes a knot of able editors who figured in his day These factious undertakers of the press, write with great advantage : thor I ously affiim a thousand falsehoods wkhout fear,wrt conscience, or knowledge : and we, who an.vver the n," -must 'lie if the expense of an argument f r each ; afrer which in the very nexi pamphlet, we see the sW,l assertions produced again without the least tmt.ee of what haUi.e-said to disprove . , Isaac iiAiiwift WILL cmirtie to rece.w t e ' .
