[The very curious and interesting notes of the following Journal, con

tain some important contributions to the history of the most eventful period of modern Europe. The winter of 1813-14 was daily pregnant with unexpected and remarkable events.

The Journal forms part of daily notes of occurrences passing under the author's eye, and comprehends such accounts and observations of others as seemed worthy of record. The author invariably distinguishes between what he heard and what he saw; and in noting information on the authority of others he used the greatest caution, sifting and collecting it with the most scrupulous care. The French, in their love of display and indifference to accuracy, and in their inordinate vanity, are witnesses not to be relied upon without the utmost caution and examination.

On many of the facts here detailed, the Paris papers preserved a dead silence, and narrated many in precise contradiction to the truth. Several of the notes are from persons of high diplomatic authority, actors in the great scenes described, and they were committed to paper at the time of communication.

The author had originally no view to the publication of any portion: the Journal was kept solely for his own amusement and reference, Sept. 1825.

B

there was therefore no motive for mis-statement or mis-representation ; and he has forborne to add any commentary to the unvarnished narrative. There was a time when he himself performed an important part in the drama of the world; but he is now a silent, though cheerful, spectator.]

1814. JANUARY. Towards the end of January, the dreams of power, security, and reliance on the omnipotence of their arms, which the French had so long indulged, vanished before their increasing dangers; and apprehension that the invading army would arrive at Paris was manifested by several of the inhabitants packing up their most valuable effects, and sending them into those parts of France where it was least probable the enemy would penetrate. While, at the same time, many of the inhabitants of villages, farms, and country-houses in the environs, brought their furniture into the metropolis for greater security. Waggons and carts thus laden were daily seen on the Boulevards and all the roads to the capital. Even the Duke of Rovigo, Minister of Police, sent his daughters, and the furniture of his own hotel in the Rue Cerutti, into the neighbourhood of Toulouse. The Parisians of every class of society laid in, to the full extent of their circumstances, stores of flour, rice, vetches, white beans, potatoes, salt pork, red herrings, &c. Salt beef and biscuit are unknown at París. One day at the commencement of February, the demand for potatoes was so great at the Marché des Innocentes, that a measure (the decalitre) rose from the usual price of six sols to forty; this produced a considerable supply the next day, when they fell to the usual price.

The bakers received orders from the police to lay in a stock of flour.

On the 18th of January, the law which fixed the rate of interest in civil cases at five per cent, and at six in commercial concerns, was suspended until January 1, 1815; and in the interim, every one was at liberty to obtain what interest he could.

However, general as were these precautions, yet few persons would openly acknowledge, or even bring themselves to believe, that the enemy would dare to attack the capital. All they would admit was, that it might be so surrounded as to have all supplies of provisions cut off.

Notwithstanding the exertions of government to “ Nationalise the war,the greatest indifference was evidently felt by the middle and lower classes, now that their vanity was no longer gratified by conquest for themselves and insult to others. Every artifice was resorted to by the Police to arouse the slaves of its power from this apathy; one of these was the attempting to recal to the minds of the populace (what they had been for years labouring to destroy) the energy they had manifested at the beginning of the Republic. Towards effecting this, they
