fallen state af f fmraaa nature . > What wili % e drought of ^ h ^ c bi 6 i ^ y < conflicts 'when man has forgotten the idle tales of glory with which fhe years of our childhood have been fostered from the writings of heathens , and when he reflects on the maxims of that kingdom to v hich he has devoted himself , the
kingdom of the Lamb , which , not withstanding present appearances , shall triumph over the impiety and the foliy of those Who delight in blood . The heroes of this world have been in dily expectation of adding more tales of woe to their eventful history ; but for what cause their swords have been
s © long sheathed is the scabbards we have yet to learn . Their great leader has been visiting , as it were in triumph , the cites of his confederate kings , presiding at magnificent feasts , graced by an emperor besides himself , and kings , queens , princes and princesses , all teem * bling at his nod , and not one of whom ,
twenty years ago , would have admitted him to their table . The example is fii for proud mortality , to teach it , that God can raise from the dunghill a man to sit upon the throne , and can cast coh-r tempt upon princes , and " level thrones with the dust . The numerous legions of Buonaparte are now with him on the
borders of Russia , penetrating , probably , those inhospitable regions * " where a sovereign boasts in the name of an autocrat , and the majority of his subjects sire slaves * We have yet to learn the real cause of the war , and politicians
are not without hopes , that here , at least , Bonaparte may be foiled and hi * army may be conquered , not by the sword , but by famine . The dispersion f such a body in Russia might eventually do good , and - be the means of
W . M . ' s communications , with relation to Mr . Henderson , would be very acceptable . r We beg leave to call the attention of our Readers to Lord Stanhopete Bill ^ behalf of Religious Liberty ( in pages 391 , 392 , of the present Number ) which is « ft be debated in the House of Lords , within a very few days .

bringing forward in cij ^ zstion / ithi * ha 3 f-savage peoples * . ¦ % i "& •? &tfc ¦ In Spain events go on as usual . Continual fighting takes place between the Guerillas and the French , in which the former are represented as constantly victorious * On the frontiers the prowess of the English has been shewn by
taking the head of a bridge , fortified in the strongest manner , with little lo ? s to themselves , but great loss to the enemy . By this an opening is made for our troops into Spain , and if dependance could be placed- on the Spaniards , the Gallic king might at last tremble for his capital . But the great armies of France capital . But the great armies of France
still remain capable of supporting each other , and there are no appearances of a speedy end to the conflict . A measure is said to have been taken of filling up the vacancies in our army by adding a certain number of Spaniards to each regiment , who , being under British officers , will soon , become formidable in the field .
The best news of the United States arise * from home , and , notwithstanding the lowering sun in the West , we stilt hope that no war will take place . In the South of America , the inhabitants of the North and South of La Plata cannot reconcile their differences ; bat , the assistance of the Brazilians does not give a superiority to the former . The
government of Buenos Ayres is every day gaining consistency . The Brazils have lost a minister , who , though he was an European , had enlarged views , and saw that there was , qtx the Western Continent , a great field for exertion , and that the house of Braganza , under the influence of good councils , ' would have no reason to regret its departure from the miseries of the mother country .
