Journals to the 13th inft. Their contents,
as far as they relate to the proceedings
in Swit2erland, are'vof confiderable
irpprtance, t he affai rs of that Country,
to all appearance, beinrid w brought to
a crifi,s. According to accounts from
Laufynne the Patriots, after entering
the Pafs-de-Vaii-l, fnccceded in defeating
the mam body-;of th- army -of the uo-,
vernment : on tbe 4'h ititt, advanced as
ar as Yverden, and ,on the Tame day
took pofleffion of Moudon, wthin a
few miles of Lanfan ne. Thefe'fucceircs
of the Patriots Itruck fuch terror into
e Government, that they were on the
int of flyintr to Geneva, when Citizen
Rapp, Aid-de-Camp to Buonaparte,
arrived with the . declaration of the Chief
Conful. , which was ' received with
' warm gratitude,' and on being com.
rhurncated Jo Bachmann, the General
of ibc Patriotic Army, heconfented . to
impend -nouiiiiics until uc rcceivcu

of the Diet of Schwiti mpuld be knawti.
DcDiities were immediately lent c.t to
that place, -to learn the determination
of the Diet, and Mr. Rapp confented to
wait their return to Berne. In the mean
time, the truce continued, and the zeal
of the patriotic troop appear to have
confiJerably rr jaxed, in confequence of
the active interference pf France. Should
they attempt any rdHlancc tothcimpcri
ous mandate, an army of 40,000 Frertch,
under the orders ot Gen. Ney, will im
mediately enter the Swifs territory : and
as this force will be fupported by 40-
Rulfia and Pruflia, with refpeft to Mai
ta, being (till looked to by the Brium
miniftry as a preliminary meafure of ne
ceHity to'the final evacuation of that if,
land by our troops. BefiJes we hardly
think that Miniilers have any inclination
to interfere in a bunnels thai might lead
ta a general renewal of hollilities, the
more efieciall as, to: all appearance,
they would receive but little encourage
ment in tne enterprise irom tne preva.
ling fpirit of the people, wjiofe indiffsr-j
ertce towards the concerns of foreign
nations,' cannot be better exemplified
than in the; total failure of the propofed
(ublcription in aid of the counter-revo
lutionary Swiff. However the people
or England may regret the fate of thole
patriots, they are neverthelefs fcnliblc,
that France, in fuppprtir.g the Govern

refpeft to that country. For years pail
has the itifluence of France effecluallv
coo more; it neceiraryi we (ce no chance
of the exertions oi the Patriots being
crowned with tht fuccefs they deferve.
The French writers exprefsa conviiJlion
that thj Proclamation of the Confal
will procure the fubmiffionof the Infur
gent Generals and caufe an immediate
termination ot ho'.tilitics. This, under
the prefentcircumllances, will probably
prove to be the cafe. Any refidance, on

ditference between ailual and virtual

pathy may be, would reluctantly engage
in a difpute, where their interferences
might produce fo much evil to them
