The curious conversation which passed between our Ambasador and the First Consul, at the Thuilleries, is thus described by Lord Whitworth :-"At the Court which was held at the Thuilleries, he accosted me evidently under Very considerable agitation. He began by asking me if I had any news from England. I told him that I had received letters from your Lordship (Lord Hawkesbury) two days ago. He immediately said, and so you are determined to go to war. No! I replied, we are too sensible of the advantages of peace. Nous avons, said he, deja fait la guerre pendant quinze ans. As he seemed to wait for an answer, I observed only, C'en est deja trop.-Mais, said he, vous voulez la faire encore quinze annees, et yous m'y forcez.- I told him, that was very far from his Majesty's intentions.-He then proceeded to Cound Marcow and the Chevalier Azara, who were standing together at a little distance from me, and said to them, Les Anglois voulent la guerre, mais s'ils sont les premiers a tirer l'epee, je ferai la dernier a la remetire. Ils nes respectent pas les Traites. Il faut dorenavant les couvrir de crepe noir.--He then went his round. In a few minutes he came back to me, and resumed the conversation, if such it can be called, by something personally civil to me. He began again. Pourquoi des armemens ? Concre qui des mesures de precaution ? Je n'ai pas un feul vaisseau de ligne dans les ports de France ; mais si vous voulez armer, j'armerai aussi ; si vous vous lez vous battre, je me battrai aussi. Vous pourrez peutetre tuer la France, mais jamais l'intimider.-On ne voudroit, said I, ni l'on ni l'autre. On voudroit viyre en bonne intelligence avec elle - Il faut donc respecter les Traites, replied he; malheur a ceux qui ne respectant pas lis Traites; ils en seront responsable a toute l'Europe. ---He was too much agitated to make it adviseable for me to prolong the conversation; I therefore made no answer, and he retired to his apartment, repeating the last phrase. It is to be remarked that all this passed loud enough to be overheard by two hundred peo. ple, who were present, and I am persuaded that there was not a single person who did not feel the impropriety of his conduct, and the total want of dignity as well as of decency on the occasion.
