duke del Infantado it reported however to
have declined serving 1 one cf the re

to have been thus i at tht French army
approached the Spanish capital, AWishbl,
who had been charzed by the contlitu
tionaiitts with its defence, wis tampered -with
by Montijo, whose letter, together
with AaisBAL'a suspicious reply, is to be '
found below. Abiibal having then deter

insert, and which, taken by Itself, docs
not prove much against hint, and then re
tired. On Ihe 3 1st, between te pemd
when the Spanish regular force was with
drawn, and the entry ef the French, the
servile genercl Bessiers endeavoured to
force his way to (he capital, bui was re

great loss. Of Ahishal'a conduct no sa

" Some say he has been seized by Ms
soldiers, and is to be tried by a court
martial. We believe it was never ex
pected that he should defend Madrid t he
is aaid to have marked out Eatramadura
s the place where military operations
might commence with success. We also,
suspect, that without virtue enough to
be a patriot, he had wanted courage to
be a decisive traitor. If so he will have t
incurred the hatred and be exposed to tht'
vengeance of both parties." - T
