Prince Louis Nap lb..n. kinsman of
the great rvapoleon, Ute'U made a wretched
attempt to arouse an insurrection in his fa
vor at Boulogne, France. Having for some
time past resided in England, ho chartered
a British steamer, ostensibly for an excur
sion of pleasure along the British coast,
and embarked with Gen. Montholon, Cols.
Vaudrey Parquin and Dclaborde, and oth
ers, officers and privates, to the number of
about 50 They proceeded to Boulogne
and landed m the city in full uniform,
when tbe followers of prince Louis began
to cry "Vive PEmpereurl" and by other
??DaJ0 eXC,ie an '""ectionaryspirit.
I he officers of the regulars French troops
staiioned in the city however soon nullified
their rallying cry, by shouting Vivele Roi!"
and enforcing' the obedience of the soldiers.
Tbe intrpders were driven out, not without
bloodshed, and at the imminent peril ol
Louis's life, who endeavored to swim off
to the steamer. The steamer was captured
and brought tato port, and Louis and all his
