His intentions in moving down into tin: more immediate neighbourhood of our positions, with so lar^e a host, arc as yet undiscovered That he was not long since very pacifically inclined and considered a war with the English as the one thing to be avoided, will not admit of a doubt. The last war has taught him that all the resources of the empire, in men, money and incantations, had been unable to pre vent the advance of the English to the Capital ; and lie was utterly repugnant to the idea of trying conclusions a second time with them in the field.
