The Count de Chambord has addressed a manifesto to the
Legitimists of France, specifically enjoining them to accept no offices under the Usurpa- tion.
" The first duty of Royalists is to do no act, to enter into no engagement, in opposition with their political faith. Thus, then, whatever advantage may be obtained by filling positions and offices which place them in relation and habitual contact with the people, they must not hesitate to refuse all such in case engagements or promises be required from them contrary to their prin- ciples, and which would not permit them to do in all circumstances what their convictions impose on them. Happier days are yet in 'gore for France, and for us : I am certain of the fact. It is in my ardent love for my coun- try, it is the hope of serving it, of being able to serve it, that I gather the strength and the courage necessary for me to accomplish the great duties which have been imposed on me by Providence."
The Constitutionnel is the only French newspaper which even refers to this document: that Government print says-
" If it be an incontestable advantage for a Government to see clearly into- the conduct and progress of its adversaries, and to know with certainty on what it may or may not reckon, we cannot see with displeasure the new movement of the Legitimist party : if it suite it to now number its forces., we can only regard it as a useful lesson for it and for France."
The Inde'pendance Beige was stopped at the Paris post-office yesterday,. because it contained the letter of the Comte de Chambord.
The Piedmontese Gazette gives this information from Florence, dated the 8th instant- " The Constitution and Civic Guard are abolished. A decree of the Grand Duke of Tuscany constitutes the Government on the same basis as before 1848. The Ministers are henceforward responsible to the Grand Duke ; the Council of State is separated from that ot the Ministers. The communal law of 1849 and the law on the press are to be revised."
