According to accounts from Madrid to the 12th, vigorous measures

bad been adopted to insure the continuance of tranquillity in that city ; the streets being patrolled every evening by large detachments of troops. The excuse for these precautions is the pretended discovery of depots of arms and ammunition, leading to the inference that some sudden move- ment was contemplated antecedent to the elections. The Captain- General of Arragon bad proclaimed that province to be in a state of siege ; and dragged Don F. Lagunas, the former Commander of the National Guards of Saragossa, and three other citizens, before a military tribunal, as having been parties to the death of General Esteller, more than six years ago : after a mock trial, they were put to death, in the Plaza de San Francisco.
