Not illustrated. 1810 Excerpt: ...but for all the rights of human nature;---not for temporal blessings, but for eternal happiness;--not for the benefit of one nation, but for all mankind, and even for France herself. Humanity does not always shudder at the sound of war, --the slow and interminable evils of slavery are a thousand times more to be abhorred;--there is a kind of peace more fatal than a field of battle, drenched with blood, and strewed with the bodies of the slain. Such is the peace in which the metropolis of Spam is held by the enemy. The most respectable citizen there is exposed to the insolence of the basest French ruffian; at every step he has to endure at least the insult of being eyed with the disdain of the. conqueror towards the conquered. The inhabitants of Madrid, strangers, as it were, and by sufferance in their own houses, cannot enjoy one moment's tranquillity. The public festivals, established by immemorial custom, the attendance on religious ordinances, are considered as pretexts for insurrection, and threatened with being interrupted by discharges of cannon. The slightest noise makes the citizen tremble in the bosom of his family. From time to time the enemy run to arms, in order to keep up the terror impressed by the massacres of the 2d and 3d of May. Madrid is a prison, where the jailors take pleasure in terrifying the prisoners, for the purpose of keeping them quiet by perpetual fear.--But the Spaniards have not yet lost their country --those fields which, for so many years, have seenno steel except that oftheploughshare, are about, amid the splendour of arms, to become the new cradle of their freedom Fly then to the field of honour Life or death, in such a cause, and in such times, are indifferent. You who return, will be received by your country as her deli..
