been unable to procure a copy at any shop in Paris, and that persons high in the literary and political circles of that centreas they love to call it-of liberality and civilisation-of literature and of light—had not-when we last heard from Parisbeen able to obtain a sight of it. We can scarcely believe such monstrous tyranny, but, if it be true, our regret at the impediment thus arbitrarily interposed to personal justice and to historical truth is considerably alleviated by the consideration that such an impediment is already a testimony, odious, indeed, but decisive, to the truth and justice which it attempts to smother. It is also a wholesome and instructive lesson to see that the grand constitutional principles which France boasts of having conquered and consecrated in 1789-that the expansive liberties of the Republic, which they tell us have survived and excused its horrors-that the ineffaceable and immortal glories of the old Empire, and finally the stupendous agency of universal suffrage-or, in plainer terms, the omnipotent gendarmerie of the new one-are all together afraid to face a shilling pamphlet, in which there is not a fact, and hardly a word, that is not forty years old-of European notoriety-of the most unquestionable authenticity and veracity, and of which the sole offence can be that a Frenchman ventures to lay before his countrymen in their own tongue a review of historical facts which have been for almost half a century inscribed in the annals of all the other nations of the world.


For our parts we confess that it is chiefly for the sake of France herself that we care that M. Maurel's estimate of the Duke of Wellington should make proselytes amongst his countryShe is now expiating in a strait-waistcoat her former extravagances, and her prospects are worse than dark; but we still hope and believe that there is in France, under that fearfrozen surface, a depth of good feeling and good sense which must eventually awaken a degree of moral and political courage sufficient to deliver her from the monstrous anomaly that she has during such a rapid succession of revolutions and usurpations exhibited, of being at once the wonder, the contempt, and the terror of the rest of the world, and-we really believe-of herself. M. Maurel's work is marked with that moral courage, and we heartily wish that we could extend its influence. Happy will it be for France and the world if she can be taught that the true glory of soldiers and statesmen, and the real safety and dignity of nations, is to be found in those eternal principles of justice and truth, of which the Duke of Wellington was while living, and has bequeathed to us in his works, the most perfect model. Those,' to borrow M. Maurel's eloquent expressions,
