in perpetual infancy, and to derive no practical wisdom from experience! It was now thought as easy to march to Paris as to will it ! At our time of writing, the French Bailcuins portend great disasters to the allied armies; but let us hope that the lessons given by fortnine to both sides, will incline both to Peace, and that good inay thus, providentially as it were, arise out of ENORMoUs Evils' F RENCH GOVERNMENT ACC0 UNTS. Paris, Feb. 5. Her Majesty the Empress Queen and Regent has received the following odvices of the situation of the artuits on the 3d February:

27th, the cinemy entered Brior me, and rentinued his march, but he so to lose some time a repairing the bridges of Łesment on the Aube. On the 27 th the emperor caused ot, jjizier to be attacked. The Duke of Beilung presented himself before that town. General Duhesme overthrew the enemy's rear guard which was still there, and took some hundred prison: rs. At cight in the morning the emperor arrived at St. Dizier. It is difficult to describe the intoxication of joy of the inhabitants at this moment, 'The excesses of cvery kind complitted by the enemy, especially by the Cossacks, are beyond asidescription. On the 28th the emperor went to Montierender. On the 90th, at-Cigit in the morning, General Grouchy, who commands the cavalry, sent word that General Milhaud, with the 5th corps of cavalry, was between Maieres and Brienne, in presence of the enemy’s army, commaided by General Bacher, which was estimated at 40,000 Russia is and forussians, the Russians commanded by Ge:eral Sacken. At four o'clock t'ie Hittle town of Brienne was attacked. General Lefebre des Nouettes, commanding a division of cavalry of the guaro, and Goocraig Gronchy and Milhaud, made several fine charges on the right of the road, and took possession. of the height of Perthe. The Prince of Moskva put himself at the head of six hattalions in close column, and advanced against the town by the road of Mozioros. General Chateau, chief of the staff of the Duke of Bellano, at the head of two hattalions, turned by the right, and got into the castle of Bricane by the park. At this moment the emperor directed a coto...u on the road of Båt-sur-Aube, which seeisled to be the retreat of the enemy. Tile attack was warm, and the resistance obstimate. The enemy did not expect such a brisk attack, and had but just time to call back his parks from the bridge of Lesmont, where he intended to pass the Aubo, to

dvance. This countermarch had much embarrassed him. Night did not put an end to the combat. The division Decouz, of the young guard, and a brigade of the division of Meanier, were engaged. The great force of the enemy, and the excellent situation of Brienne, gave him many advantages, but the taking of the castle, which he neglected to guard with a sufficient force, caused him to lose them. About eight in the evening, seeing that he could no longer maintain itis ground, he set fire to the town, and the flames spread with rapidity, all the houses being of wood. Profit::::: by this event, he endeavoured to retake the eastie, which the brave commander of a battalion of the 50th defended with intrepidity. He covered with the dead as the approaches to the castie, parfictiary tie staircases on the park side. This last check determined the retreat of the enemy, which was favoured by the burning of the town.

At eleven in the morting of the 30th, General Grouchy and the Duke of Belluno pursued him beyond the visiage de la Rothiere, where they took their position. The 31st was employed by us in repairing the bridge of f.esmerit, on the Aube; the comperor interidizig to advance towards Troyes, to operate upon the columns which directed their match by Bar-surAube, and the road of Auxerre upon Sens. The bridge of Lesmont could not be repaired before the 1st of February in the morning. A part of the troops was immediately made to file off. At three in the afterneon, the enemy having been reinforced by his whole army, debouched up la Rothiere and ideinville, which we still held. Our rear guard shewed a good counenance. General Duhesme distinguished himself by preserving Rothiere, and General Gerard by preserving Dienville. The Austrian corps of General Guilay, which attempted to pass from the left bank to the right bank, and to force the bridge, had several of its battalions destroyed. The }}uke of Heiluno maintained himself the whole day at the hamlet of la Giberie, notwithstanding the cnormous disproportion of his corps to the forces that attacked it. This day, in which our rear-guard maintained itself in a vast plain, against the whole of the enemy's army, and quintuple forces, is one of the finest achievements of the French array. In the midst of the obscurity of the night, a battery of the artillery of the guard following the movements of a column of cavalry, which was advancing to repulse a charge of the enemy, lost its way and was taken. When the cannoncers perceived the ambush into which they had fallen, and saw that they had not time to form their battery, they formed themselves in a squadron, attacked the enemy, and saved the horses and harness.

thatel, visiting the posts, found the two armies so near that he several times took the enemy's posts for ours. One of his -aid-de-camps being ten paces from a vidette was taken prisoner. The same accident happened to several Russian officers, who were carrying the word, and who got amongst our posts, taking then for their own. Few prisoners have been olade on either side; we have taken 250. On the 2d of February, at break of day, the rear guard of the army was en bataille, before Brienne. It successively took position to finish the passing the bridge of Łesmont, and rejoining the rest of the army. The Titke of Ragusa, who was in position upon the bridge of Rosnay, was attack; d by an Austrian corps, which had passed behind He repulsed it, made 800 prisoners, and drove the enemy beyond the small river of Voire. Go the 3d, at 3:oon, the emperor entered Troyes. We have lost in the battie of 3rienne the brave Gel eral Baste; Geijeral Lefebre &es Nowettes has been wounded by a bayot.et; General Froistier has been severely woundRed. Our loss in these two days hiay be estimated at from 2 to 3,308 men kilied or wonneled. That of the enemy has at least been double. A division, drawn frown the enemy's corps d'armee, which observes Mietz, Thionville, and Luxembourg, 12 battalious strong, marched upon Vetry. The enemy wished to enter that town, which

the Emperor, has brought to her Majesty the Empress the following news On the 11th of February, at day-break, the emperor having left Champpaubert after the day of the ioth, pushed a corps towards Chaloms, to keep in check the enemy's columus, who had thrown themselves on this side. With the rest of his army he took the road to Montmirail. A league beyond be met the corps of General Blucher, and after an action of two hours the whole of the enemy's army was overthrown. Never did our troops display more ardour. The enemy, every where broken, is completely routed; infantry, artillery, ammunition, . aii is in our power or overthrown. The results will be immense. The Russian aroy is destroyed. The comperor is extremely well, and we have lost uo persoa of rank. Paris. Feb. 13.-Her Majesty the Empress Queen and Regent has received the following accounts of the situation of the armies : . (an the 12th of February, his Majesty followed up his successes. General Piucher codeavoured to gain Chateau Thierry. His troops were driven from position to position: a whole corps which had remailed united, and which protected his retreal; was cut off. This rear guard was composed of four Russian battalions, three Prussian battalions, and three pieces of cannon. The general who commanded it was also taken. Our troops entered Chateau Thierry pell-mell with the enemy, and are pursuing on the road to Soissons, the wrecks of this army, which is in dreadful confusion. The results of to-day, the 12th, are 30 pieces of cannon, and an innumerable quantity of baggage-waggons. The mumber of prisoners was already 3000; more are brought in every moment. We have still two hours day-fight. Among the prisoners are five or six generals, who are sent to Paris. It is believed that the General-in-Chief Sacken has been killed.

Paris, Feb. 16.-Her Majesty the Empress Queen and Regent has received the following intelligence from the army, to the 15th Feb in the morning : On the 13th, at three o'clock in the afternoon, the bridge of Chateau Thierry was 1epaired. The Duke of Treviso passed toe Marne, and put himself in pursuit of the enemy, who, in dreadful disorder, appeared to be retiring upon Soissons and Rheins. General Blucher, commanding in chief all the army of Silesia, had constantly re. mained at Vertus during the three days in which his army was anniäilated. He collected 1200 men of the wrecks of General Assuffien's corps, beaten at Champ Aubert, which he joined to a Russian division of the corps of Langeron, arrived from Mayence, and commanded by Lieut.- 2.

166 General Ouroussoff. He was too weak to undertake any thing; but on the 13th he was joined by a Prussan corps, fom Gemeral Kleist, composed of four brigades. He them put himself at the head of these 20,000 men, and marched against the Duke of Ragusa, who still occupied Etoges. In the ni.ht between the 13th and 14th, *not judging his forces sufficient to contend against the enemy, the Duke of Ra usa becam his retreat, and leaned upon Montmiratt, where he was at seven o’clock in the morning on the 14th. - The emperor set out the same day from Chateau Taierly, at four in the morning, and arrived at Montmirail at eight o'clock. He caused the enemy to be immediately attacked, who had just taken a position with the corps of his troops at the village of Vauchamp. The Duke of Ragusa attacked this village. General Grouchy, at the head of the cavalry, turned the enemy's right by the villages and the woods, and advanced a league beyond the enemy's position. While the village of Vauchamp was vigorously attacked, and defended in the same mainer, taken and retaken several times, General Grouchy arrived in the rear of the enemy, surrounded and sabred three squares of the enemy, and drove the rest into the woods. At the same instant the emperor caused a charge to be made on our right by his four squadrons de service, commanded by M. La Bifie, Chef d'Escadron of the Guard. This charge was equally brilliant and successful. A square of 2000 men was broken and taken. All the cavalry of the guard then came in a fuli trot, and the enemy was pursued l'opée duns les reins. At two o'clock we were at the village of Fromentiers, and the enemy had lost 6000 men, taken prisoners, ten pair of colours, and thee pieces of cannon. The emperor ordered General Grouchy to advance to Champ-Aubert, a league in the rear of the enemy. In fact, the enemy continuing his retreat, arrived at this point at night-fall. He was them surrounded on every side, and all would have been taken, if the bad condition of the roads had not prevented 12 pieces of light artillery from following General Grouchy's cavalry. However, though the night was obscure, three squares of his infantry were broken, killed, or taken, and the others briskly pursued as far as Etoges; the cavalry took also three pieces of cannon. The rearguard was composed of the Russian division : it was attacked by the first marine regiment of the Duke of Ragusa with the bayonet, broken, and 1000 prisoners taken ; among whom are Lieutenant-General Ouroussoff, who commanded it, and all the colonels. The results of this brilJiant day are 10,000 prisoners, 10 pieces of cannon, 10 pair of colours, and a great tmany killed. 9ur loss does not exceed 3 or 400 men,

killed or wounded, which is owing to the
readiness with which the troops advanced
to the enemy, and to the superiority of our
cavalry, which induced him, as soon as he
perceived it, to make his artillery retreat,
so that he constantly moved under the
grape-shot of sixty pieces of cannon, while
out of the sixty pieces which he had he did
not oppose above two or three to us.
The Prince of Neufchatel, the Grand
Marshal cf the Palace Count Bertrand,
the Duke of Dantzic, and the Prince of
Moskwa, were constantly at the head of
the troops. -
General Grouchy highly praises the di-
visions of cavalry St. Germain and Dou-
mere. The cavalry of the guard covered
itself with glory. General Lion, of the
guard, is slightly wounded. The Duke of
Ragusa particularly mentions the 1st ma-
rine regiment. The rest of the infantry,
both of the guard and the line, did not fire
a shot.
Thus the Silesian army, composed of the
Russian corps, of Sacken and Langeron,
and the Prussian of Kleist and Yorck,
80,000 strong, has becn in four days beaten,
dispersed, annihilated without a general
action, and without any loss proportioned
to such great results.
The misabitants assert, that of all that
army, 10,000 nich have not passed through
Chateau Thierry, and they in the greatest
disorder. A few days before they had seen
it flourishing and full of boasting. General
Yorck said, that ten howitzers would he
sufficient to render him master of Paris.
In going these troops only talked of Paris;
on returning it was peace which they in-
voked.
One cannot form an idea of the excesses
to which the Cossacks give themselves up;
there are no vexations, cruelties, crimes,
which those hordes of barbarians have not
committed. The peasantry pursueroem,
track them in the woods like fe?osious
beasts; seize them and bring them where-
ever there are French troops. Yesterday
they conducted more than 300 of them to
Vieux Maisons. All those who hid them.
selves in the woods, to escape the conquer-
ors, fail into their hands, and every instant
augments the missimber of prisoners.
The people are exasperated to the high-
est degree. The enemy every where com-
mits the most horrible excesses. All mea-
sures are taken for surrounding him on all
sides, as soon as he retrogrades one step.
Millions of arms wait only for the moment
to raise, themselves. The sacred territory
which the enciny has violated will become
a land of fire which will devour him.
The left wing of the Allied a my conti-
nuing to push for Paris, Napoleon attack-
ed them at Nangis on the 17th, and at
Montereau on the 18th, repulsing them
with loss. An English messenger from
