LA FAYETTE IN FRANCE, The Paris Constitutional, of the; 20th Oct. contains a circumstantial account of the re- ception of La Fayette at La Grange.- -sfh'e neighboring villages uniteddn a public fes- tival.ontheoecasion, notwithstanding strong efforts on the part of the municipal author- ities to prevent rejoicings of any kind. W e shall proceed to translate one of, the ad- dresses which were delivered to the General by deputations, together with one of his an* swers.— Nat. Gaz, ADDRESS.—\ At length we again be-' hold ygu, grown younger from the atmos- phere ofliberty whichyouhaye been breath- ing, and the spectacle of fhlto^pi^esssp/,* powerful and grateful people, which' you have contemplated with delight. Like the Americans, we could wish to describe to you our love,, pleasure and admiration; but these sentiwbhfs, agit^mgtpo strongly our hear$, 'depiiffeijs of tto^b%ir«^fjSp doing.\ To which the general r!pplied~'*^hf!;a!f- fecting welcome which awaited nievfipre, and the fresh testimonials of atfacfin^n.! which .you lavish upon me to~day, wl-iftp^| the measure of my joy in finding myself in the bosom of my family and y> t|e midst of you, my friends and neighbors. During my journeys over the free and prosperous territory of the United States, it was sweet to me to think th tt the voices of that excel- lent and admirable people would resound, even as far as your abodes, and that you would enjoy them for me. '-..;•' \ The enemies of the people's cause have cast it as a reproach upon me, that in ex- ptessing my sentiments at the American meeting, 1 thought'also of you. They were right*to believe' this; and, in fact, at the sight of the wonders of public prosperi- ty and private happiness which, in that im- Imensfcountry, are the fruits of liberty, e- ''IpaMfilljjgad/ arid^national order, it would have been, dimcult-for me to forget the wish I had ever cherished 1 tha|^y,JEKench countrymen should exercise the sarrie'iighj^ and obtain the same felicity. \ You see me now restored to my retreat of La Grange, which is dear to me on so many accounts, and to those agricultural employments of which you know me to be so fond, and which for a long series of years, I shared with you, my neighbors, and the greater part of the friends who surround me. Your regard, fully reciprocated on my part, causes them to be moie and more prized. Accent, I pray you, my thanks for the fine festival that you have prepared for me, and that rills my heart with delight and gratitude.\ Not less than six thousand persons were present at this joyous commemoration of the return of him whom they called the A- merican Nation's Guest. The dancing con- tinued throughout the night, and the air was filled with cries \Long live La Fayette\— \ Long live the friend of the People.\— On the following day the General receiv- ed a considerable number of distinguished visitors from Paris. Jeremy Bentham was among these. We remark this language in an editorial article of the Journal ties Debats. \ In less than 50 years, the United States have rendered all America, with the excep- tion of Brazil, republican; they created in Europe, during some years, the French re- public and progeny. How many years will ?t require for republican America to act upon Europe, shaken by our revolution— upon Europe, where the ideas that support- ed the old governments are so astonishingly weakened ? All resolves itself upon a sim- ple mle of proportion. The ministerialists have but one hope, founded in the adversi- ty of mankind ; it is, that distutbances and divisions will arise in America; that the new republics will fall a prey to anarchy, or receive the yoke of some ambitious mili- tary chiefs. But, if they acquire consisten- cy and flourish, in 25 years lience Monar- chial Europe will experience the effects of the blind system pursued here. And what are twenty five years for a People ? The French republic lasted only ten years ; the EmDire vanished in about the s-^nie nuni: ber of years that have elapsed since the happy restoration of the Bourbons. How- many things have not the adults of France -seen—and how many things may they not see in the last stages of old age 1 * * * The discovery of the representative repub- lican system contains the germ of^the de- struction of monarchies—put yourselves in the rear of the age, and you will arrive at Republicanism—place yourselves in fiont, take the lead, and you will enter the port of constitutional monarchy. These are prac- tical truths.\ The Parisians say that Charles X- is not inimical to M.. de La Fayette. A few days, ago, at a royal breakfast, the old ultras, who compose the intimate society of the king; were not a little scandalized on hear- ing his majpsty say, \ I cannot conceive why M. de La Fayette should excite so much a- larm. He is a very amiable man; I have often played at tennis with him; he was then a fine young fellow, and an excellent horseman. ' THE RETURN OF CAPT. PARRY. This experienced and enterprising offi- cer arrived on Sunday last at the Admiral- ty, having left his ship, the Hecla, off Pe- lershead, from whence he proceeded to town by land. His third attempt to solve the important problem for which he and his gallant crew have encountered so many hardships and dangers, has again been de- feated ; but, this time the disappointment is so\entirely accidental, and the hopes of suc- cess had begun to assume such a character of certainty, that though the great object is delayed, its ultimate attainment is almost placed beyond the possibility of doubte In the summer of 1824, it will be recol- lected, the Hecla and Fury were\ fitted out for this service; the former under the im- mediate command of Captain Parry, the latter under that of Captain Hoppner. In •••(• -va 1' the first voyage,,Captain Parry fta<I enter- ed Lancaster Sound, and steering PQQtlX due west, wintered at MelvtJIjt* Islajnd,; hav- ing on the way entered an inlet o\h;tKerieft» in a southerly direction, called Poripe, JJe- gent's Inlet, which was exjilore^d to some^f** tance, k- found to terminate, m..»p opeii\ sea> In the second voyage, Oapt.

Ihe Mm W^m blinks ' ' ,15 ^*«»# The expedition had penetrated a little* ^ way only southwest of the point at which the discoveries in the first voyage had ter- minated. The crews were all in high health and spirits, and they have returned 1 to their native shores without the loss of a man, exept two sailors, one of whom died_ of illness previously contracted, the other having lost his life by an accident. We regret the event that has thus, for the present, interrupted the progress of discov- ery ; but we see no reason to doubt that the perseverance of our matchless navigator^ will finally, in another attempt, be crown- ed with complete success. The experience they have gained by these repeated voyages into the Arctic Seas, cannot but conduce of itself most importantly to the preserva- tion of their lives, and to familiarize them with dangers which might otherwise have appeared insurmountable. What is perhaps most to be regretted in the failure of Captain Parry's expedition to the Arctic regions is, that it may de- range the plans of Captain Franklin, and the overland expedition, which was formed in concert with that of Captain Parry. It appeals by a letter received in Edinburgh from Capt. Franklin, dated the 2d of June, that he and his adventurous comrades were at that time 700 miles ih advance of Cum- berland House. The party were all well, and in good spirits, which had been height- ened by the intelligence that the stores had reached the depot at the first wintering sta- tion. Their progress had been greatly im- peded by the falls of Mackenzie River, which aie represented as inferior only to those of Niagara. INTERIOR OF AFRICA. We have received accounts of a recent discovery in Central Africa, which will soon. Le laid before the public in greater detail; but of which the following outline is sUnl- - ciently curious :—Major Clapperton and . Captain Denham, in the course of their late expedition in that quarter of the world, arrived in the territory and subsequently re- sided for some weeks in the capital of amo- tion, whose manners and history seem like- ly to occupy to no trivial extent, the atten- tion of the public of this country—we might safely say of the whole civilized world.— They found a nation jet black in color, but not in our sense of ( the term, negroes, having long hair and fine high features. This peo- \\* pie was found to be in a state of very high civilization; and above all, the British trav- ellers witnessed a review of seven thousand cavalry, divided into regular regiments, all clothed in complete armor. Six thou* sand wore the perfect hauberk mail of the Norman Knights; uiQst .strange bf far of all, one thousand appealed in perfect Ro- man armor. y?he conjectures to which tfti*, has given rise afe Various* We confess, rot ourselves, that looking to the polished.ahd voluptuous manners, ascribed to these p$o>. ple, the elegance of their houses* fcc^.ibvv^ a word, the total difference betweert them, C' and any other race that has been discovered in the interior of \ Africa, the mother or monsters,\ our own opinion is strojorgly, that here we have a fragment of the old Numld- ian population; a specimen of the tribes who, after long contending and long coop- erating with imperial Rome, were at last fafia to seek safety in the central desert, upon the ' dissolution of the empire. In Jthese squad- rons Messrs. Clapperton and Denham prob- ably beheld the liveliest image that ever has been witnessed by modern eyes, of the le- gions of, Jugurtha—may we not say of Han- nibal? The armor, we understand, isfabrtj. cated in the most perfect style of the art$ and the Roman suits might be mistafefe^ for jso many Herculanean or Pompeian discov- eries, if it were possible for us to imagine\\ the existence of genuine antiques possess^ ing all the glossy finish of yesteiday T $ iybrfc- manship.„ One of these*travellers h&s'al-,, ready setoff on hi&retujrtttothib sable coujtfr.
