Announce to the people of Ireland that I intend on
every Monday, whilst the Algerine Act continues, to
publish a letter to them in the Pilot ; I will, please
Goi, begin on Monday next.
I mean to take up in detail the necessary agitation
in each county in Ireland. Our enemies shall not
triumph over the people, nor put down popular senti

without cither moral guilt or legal offence.
Call on the people to be quiet, to bear with patience
thw new indignity. Let them hope for better days,
-and better days must soon arrive.
Kiwe a caution to the atrocious whitefeet. They

or honest man is upon their crimes. The vengeance
of God will sooner later, be visited upon their wicked-

The elements of discord and revolution are rife
in various parts of the Germanic Empire. Owing,
however, to the vigilence of the Government, and the
strongly armed force, which is employed for the pur
pose, Tt has been hitherto found impracticable for the
unquiet spirits to rally, or mature any substantial
plans of concentrated action, A riot, however, of a
very serious character, broke out at Frankfort on the
evening of the 3d of April, under the very walls of
the Chamber of the Diet of the Confederation. We
.-ubjoin a private letter from Frankfort, dated on the
4th, givingthc particulars of the outbreak of the riot.
Five soldiers were killed, and twenty wounded. The
loss on the part of the students and rioters was not
stated, exept generally that it was great. Their ob
ject was the liberation of the prisoners- confined for
political offences. This they effected; but the next
day the latter voluntarily surrendered themselves,
and the leader? in the revolt were apprehended.
Order was again established, although another letter
dated 3 o'clock, on the 4th, says it was reported that
the Palace of the Duke of Nassau, Biebrick, was in
" Last night, Robert le Diable was performed. On
coming out of the theatre, at half past, nine, a vast
crovvdproceeded through the street called Zeil, to the
guard-house ot the constables, occupied by thirty sol
diers of the line, and as many police officer. This
crowd was headed by young men in the costume of
students, wearing white scarfs. On their arrival be
fore the guard-house, one of the young men, stepping
out of the ranks, harangued the people, who had col
lected in great numbers. In his speech he expacia.
ted on the oppression of which Germany was the vic-i
tim. The people received the speech with unani
mous applause. In an instant, guns, pistols and sa
bres were distributed, the guard-house was attacked,
and the prisoners confined for political offences set at
liberty. The same crowd, having been considerably
augmented, then proceeded along the Zeil ' to the
principal guard-house, attacked it amid shouts of
Liberty or Death 1' dispersed the sixty soldiers who
occupied the post, and set at liberty the prisoners,
among whom was Mr. Mohr, who had been confined
two yean? on suspicion of having taken a share in
former disturbances. Whilst blood was flowing on
both sides near the guardhouse, the drums were beat
ing throughout the town, to call together the national
guards. Part of the citizens came in time to prevent
the capture of the arsenal.
" The troops of the line amounting to 500 men,
came up in haste, and succeeded in retaking the chief
guard house. 200 soldiers also defended the ap
proach to the glacis. At eleven o'clock, the tumult
was at its height. The people perambulated the
streets, uttering shouts of fury ; patrols of cavalry,
infantry, and pompiers were seen in all directions;
the gates ot the town were shut, and even this morn
ing at ten o'clock no one is allowed to come into the
town. The conflict was very desperate. One student
received nineteen wounds by a bayonet. A prisoner,
attempting to make his escape,was mortally wounded.
Many spectators, in returning home, were either
killed or. wounded. It is positively asserted, that
several thousand peasants were on the point of enter
ing Frankfoat. It is also reported that disturbances
have taken place at Hanau, and that the fire-arms
have been made use of. At. half-past eleven, one of the
burgomasters of Frankfort rode through the different
parts ofj' the city in his carriage, and inspected the
posts. He then proceeded, at the head of 50 soldiers
of the line and 50 National Guards to the tower cal
led the Pfarrthurm, where they were sounding
tb tocsini It is remarkable that not one of the
individuals who were tolling the bell was arrest
ed." A Another letter of the same date says ;
" It appears certain that the garrison of Mentz was
apprised that disturbances would breakout at Frank
fort. Before they had commenced, Austrian troops
were on their march for Hochest, a town situated
half way between Frankfort and Mentz. These
troops have since pushed their vanguard to the bor
ders of our territory. Is it intended to tako military
possossion of Frankfort-? Have the disturbances
been fostered by the cabinet3, in order to find pretexts
for such an occupation, and for the promulgation of
new protocols? These are questions which I cannot
decide; but it is worthy of remark, that the minis
ters of the three principal powers of Germany quit
ted Frankfurt some days back, and that the leaders
of the insurrection, instead of directing the people
. towards the archives oi the Diet, led them against
the guard houses."
Tne French Government, it is said, on receiving
intelligence of these events, immediately transmitted
orders to the French towns on the frontiers, enjoining
the Germarf refugees residing there, to remove to the
interior of the kingdom.
The King of Wurtemburg issued a Proclamation
on the 2d of April dissolving the States General, with
a view to a neur election for the representatives of
the nation. The reason for this measure is distinctly
assigned to the turbulent spirit of the former body.
The Prince of Hesse Cassel issued a manifesto on
the 25th of March conceived in still stronger terms:
asserting that a majority of the Chamber had fromone man nas med since1 her arrival here ; she has
the verv commencement of the Session assumed an
attitude hostile to the government.

rived this morning from off Oporto, which place she
'eft on Monday afternoon, April 1st having landed
279 men and several officers. The St. George at
the same time landed 400, and the Lord Wellington
a great many bullocks, with a large quantity ofpro
visions: in fact, on the night of the 27th, about 30
sail of vessel landed all their cargoes. Several offi
cers ot Fedro's army came ol the Manhqs ; thev
were all in high spirits, and described every thing as
by some means had reached Sartorious, with which
he had been able to pay the Constitution and Fortu

three vessels were' cruising off Oporto.
A further supply of money was sent on the 26th
from Oporto, in the Lrindon Merchant steamer, for
the fleet, and Sartorious, with all his ships, was
hourly expected at Opollo when the Manlius came
away. Pedro now musters 5,000 English and 7,000
French troops, and his(whole force was stated by
the officers at not less th$ii 22,000. There had been
no fighting in any force isince the 24th, though skir
mishing was hourly going on, and the Miglielites
were incessantly firing (on the Castle of the Foz

Save subsided, and the mariner has anchored at the
haven of hope or joy. There is always a melancho
ly pleasure in the contemplation of a church yard
scene to a sober and sorrow-chastened mind ; of which
they only who have been deprived of all that life
held dear, can properly appreciate. Even the rustic
cantos, or the clownish witticisms nave cnarms. as
well as the simple record or the sublime memento.
Epitaphs have had an existence since the earliest
ages, w ith the Jews they were customary at an
early period, and prevalent among the Egyptians and
Greeks; particularly on those who eignaRzed them
selves as heroes or statesmen. The epitaphs were
then as sincere as they were simple, and not deserving
the sarcastic stigma of the French proverb, 'Mentevr
comme une epilaphehe lies like an epitaph;' al-
uiuugn rjmuy oi .mem subsequently verged on tolly
or flattery. Collections of these epitaphs were early
made in L.atin, &c; and the French inserted them
among their Anthologia and Ana. Subsequently I
collections were made in English. That on Alexan-'
der is celebrated for its cogency and character
A tomb suffices whom not earth could hold.
It is among the most appropriate of; antiquity : for
the ancients seem to have cultivated epic and epi
thalaraic poetry in preference to epitaphs Simple
sentences giving an outline of character are always
the best ; for epitaphs should be to biography what
biography is to history, something should be recorded
to distinguish the individual from all others.
The English have cultivated epitaphs more than
most nations; and some of these mementos may vie
with compositions of any other kind. The epitaphs
of the Elizabethan period of English history were of
a varied character, though generally ludicrous, even
when the deceased were their own recorders as with
Shakespeare, &c. 'J Then it was that the English
epitaph so much jadmired for its caustic satire was
My wife's dead there let her lie :

Physicians were in vain ;
Till God alone did hear my moan,
And eased me of my pain.
While on this stone I drop a silent tear,
For one whose mem'ry shall be ever dear,
His worth retains a place within my breast,
And will till in the grave I sink to rest.

a brother barrister with whom he happened to
