CONTINENTAL CORRESPONDENCE. - TEAR SPICTATOR,—The sympathy of the people of thig
dottn- try with the French under the late changes is close: in no totrfn city of France itself could news be expected more anxiously tlutil in this for the two or three days that communication was stopped with Paris. When a page of the Globe or the National did come, Printed on one side only, and bearing numerous other marks of haste and confusion, it was devoured all over the Pays Bas. It was read aloud to a multitude of auditors in all the so- cieties and caftis ; and they did not listen with indifference. The effect has been wider and deeper, probably, than has yet ap- peared; and the Government are not altogether sure of tranquil- lity. There have been appearances of disquiet : the conges of the soldiers on furlough are withdrawn, and the posts of the capital doubled. The prosecutions of the press have been felt as a griev- auce ; and if the new Revolution of France had taken place during • the late ferment here, previous to and during the trial of the Ba- nishe4 there is no knowing what might have taken place. The Banished, by the way, have now all France,to choose where to lay their heads: De POTTER is said to be" alitady in Paris : almost • the first business the Provisional Prefect of Police had to perform was to answer an application on their behalf to enter France. The POLIGNA.0 Administration had of course repulsed them as an abomination in therealm : now they themselves, the haughty and the harsh, are seeking a resting-place in exile, and perhaps experi- encing the bitterness of refusal. PoteareAc himself was said to have sought refuge here ; and he has been announced in all the newspa- pers of the Pays Bas as having arrived incog. at the Bellevue. The i truth is, that every traveller n the Netherlands during the last week, who appeared in a hurry, and travelled with four horses, has been taken for a flying minister. The hour of CHARLES the Tenth's arrival at Ostend was stated to a moment ; and the other day, some persons who passed through Bruges with a Carriage and a covered cart, each with four horses, were surrounded by a mob of some thousands, all anxious to get a peep at the mis- chievous Minister or the runaway Monarch. The news of the events in Paris was brought by pigeons ; and as a pigeon cannot carry many more words than a telegraph, the art of laconic writing is necessarily in request. One of them is said to have borne this pithy sentence—" Paris up—the King down—the Ministers off." One of the pigeons wore a tri-coloured cockade. The carriers arrived in unusually quick time, owing, it is supposed, to the fright they got in starting from Paris in the midst of the confusion and the discharge of fire-arms. There is to be a regular revolutionary dove-house established at Paris, for the sole purpose of bringing immediate intelligence of changes in the Government. Similar columbaries are to be set up in Madrid and Lisbon, under the idea that before long those capitals may furnish some intelligence worth hearing. In the letters and papers received here from all quarters, there is nothing but the re-echo. of the Parisian deeds, with which you are as well acquainted as we are.
