The Committee appointed on the 9th instant, and
charged to examine whether, alter the events which
have passed since the retarn of Nipoleon Bonaparte
lo France, and in consequence of the documents pull-
shed at Paris on the Do claration which the Powers
issued against bin on the (3th of March last, if would
lee hecessiniy to procecd (oa new Declaration, pre-
sented at the sitting of this day the following report :
The Declaration published on the 13th March last
against Napoleon Bonaparte and hisadherents, by the
Powers who signed the Treaty of Paris, having, since
his return to Paris, been disetissed! in Various shapes
by those whom he has enployed tor that purpose ;
these discussions having sequired great publecity, and
a letter addressed by him to all the Sovereigns, as
well asa note addressed by the Duke of Vicenza, to
the heads of the Cabinets of Furepe, having been al-
80 published by hin with the manitest intention ot
influencing and misleading public Opinion, the Com-
inittee appointed in the sitting at the 9h instant, was
charged to presenta re port on these fopics: and con-
sidering that in the abovementioned publications it
has been attempted to invalidate the Declaration of
loth of March, by laying it down, ;
l. That the Declaration directed agcinst Pona-
parte at the period of his landing con the coast of
trance, was without application, now that he had
laid hold of the reins of Gorerny ent, without even
resistance, and that this fact sufP ciently proving the
wishes of the Nation, he had not only re-cateored into,
possession of his ofd rights with regard to drance,
hut that the questive exen of the lex dinacy of his
Government had ccased lo be within the Jurisdiction
of the Prwers.
2. That hy offering to ratify the T: caty of Paris,
he removed ¢ very grovud of War against hin,
The Committee has been speeiilly charged to take
info consideration—
U. Whether the position of Ronanarte in reward to
the Powers of Europe has changed by the fact of
his arrwal at Paris, and by the ctreumstances that
accompanied the first success of his atlempt on the
throne of Fiance.
(2. Whether theoffer to sanction the Treaty of Pa-
ris, onthe 23st Wawy B14, can deterinine the Povrrs
10 adopt a system different fram that whith they an-
neunced inthe Declaratian of the lah of March,
S: Whether it be necessary or proper to publisha
news Declaration, to confirm or modify that of the
15th of March.
The Come ittee having maturely examined these
questions, subrjls to the Assembly of Plenipaten.
Waries the following account of the cesult of its deli-
Derations s—
Is the position of Bonaparte, in regard tothe Po-
wers of Kurope, altered by the first success of his en-
lerprise, or by the events which have passed since his
arritalin Paris?
The Powers, informed of B naparte’s Iduding in
Pranee, could see in him only aman who, by advanc-
ing on the French territory, with force and arms, ard
with the avowed project of overturning the establish~.
ed Government, by exciting the people and the arny
torevoltagninst theirlawtul sovereign, and by usurp.
ing the tifle of Emperas of the French (!,) had in-
curred the penalties which all Legistitions pronounce
against such outrages—a man who, by abusing the
sood faith of the Sovereigns, had broken a solemn
{realy—a man, in fine, who, by reealling upon Fiance,
happy and tranquil, all the scourges of internal and
external war, and apon Evrope ata moment when
the bleesings of peace must have consoled her for her
(1.) The Ist Article of the Convention ofthe lth
April, 1814, ts as follows: ** The Emperor N apoleon
renounces jor himself, his successors, and descendants,
as well as forali the menbers of his family, all rights
of Sovererenty and of power, not only over the brench
Empire and the Kingdom of Italy, but also over:
every other Country.” Notwithstanding this formal
renunciation, Bonaparte. in his different proclama-
tions from the Gulph of Juan, from Gap, Grenoble,
and Lyons, entitled himself * By the grace of God

—a Declaratiou of which the justice and necessily
‘have been universally acknow ledged, and which ge-
“beral opinion bas sanctioned,
The events which conducted Bonaparte to Paria,
and restored to him, for the moment, the exercise of
stipreme power, have, donbiless, in fact, altered the
position in which he was at the p riod of his enterring
France; but these events, brovat on by criminal col-
clusion, by wnilitary conspiraciés, by revolting treasons;
/can create no right; they are absolute’y null ina les
val point of view ; and in orderto the position of Boe
napute being essentially and legitimately altered, it
would be tiecessary that the steps@bieh he has taken
to establish hisvseli on the ruins of the Government
overturned by lim, should have been conficmed by
sane legal tithe.
Bonaparte lnys it down in his pnblication¢, that the
Wishes of the Prench Nation in favouvofl his re-est.abe
lishincut on the throne sullice to constitute this leval
The question for the Powers to examine may be
Mated as follows :—Can the eansent, real ont fictitious,
exphteitor tacit, of the Prench Nation te the re-estabe
listrment of Bonaparte’s power, operate a legal change
in the position of the hitter, in regard to toreiyn Poe
wers, and form a tithe ob js: tory on those Powers.
Th: Committecare of Opinion, that such cannot by
any means be the ef ct of such consents and the tol
lowing ace their reasons :— ,
The Powers know toa well the principles which
ought to guide th m in their relations with au indes
pendent Country, to atfempt (ts it is endeavoured to
acense them, Fo iupose pon if laws, to interfers
in ifs tnternal wflairs, Co prescribe to it a form of poe
verouy nt, fy give if masters aeeordins to the interests
HY passions of ityacichbours (1) Butthey also know
that the bor yoefa Nation to change its system of
Government gust lave ity just limita, and that if ‘ors
eign Powers have not the rivht to prescrthe fo it the
exercise which it strllmake of thas lib rty, they Lave
tt Neate inCobitably the reht of protestir cagainst the
abuse which it may Make of it at the irexpenec, line
pressed with this principle, the Powers do not decm
themselves auihberwKed to fnpese a Government on
rane : da ivy will never tenounee the right of
preventing the establishment in Franee of a focus of
‘Mesorders and of subversions to other States, under
the tithe of a Government. They will respect the
liberty of Prance in every wey in which itshall not
Ne incompatible with their own security and the gee
acral tranquillity o Europe.
In the existing case, the right of the Allied Sovee
reigns (oink Werein-he question of the internal Goe
versment Of France, is the indore inéontestibl , inase
much as the abolition of the power whieh now claims
(0 be resestublished there, was the Cindamental cone
dition of a treaty of peace, on which rested all the
relations which, up tot he retu n of Bonaparte to Pa.
risy subsisted hetween France and the rest of Europe.
() ithe day ol theirentrance into Paris, the Sovercicns
declared that they would never treat of peace with
Bonaparte (2.) This declaration, lou'ly applauded
by France and by Europg, produced the ab lication
of Napoleon aud the Convention of the [4th of A pril;
it formed the principal basis of the Negociation ;— it
was explictily pronounced in the preamble of the
treatyel Paris. ‘The French Nation, evensnpposing
it perfeetty free and aniied, cannat withdraw its lf
from this tundamental eondition, without dbrogating
the treaty of Paris and all its ex. stine relations with
the European system. The Allied Powers, om the
other hand, by insisting on this very condition, only
excroiv a tight which it is inifssiblé to contest to
them, unless it be maintained that the most sacred
compacts can be perverted as suits he convenience
of either of the contracting parti-s.
{t hence follows, that the will of the people of
France is by no means sufficient to re-establish, ina
legal sense, a Government proscribed by solemn ene
gagemen's, which (hat very people entered into with
all the Powers of Europe; apd that they eannot, nie
der any pretext, give validity as against these Powers
lo the right of recalling to the throne him whose exe
clusion was a condition prelimimary to every pacific
arrangement with France; the Msh of the French
people, even if it were fully ascertained, would not
be the less null and of no eff ct in regard to europe,
towards re-establishing a power, against 1 all
Europe has been in a state of permanent protest from
the 3!stof March, 1814, up to the 13th of March,
1815: and in this view, the position of Bonaparte is
precisely at this day what it was at these last-mention-
ed period.

Should the offer to sanction the Treaty of Paris
change the dispositions of the Powers ?
France has no reason to complain of the Treaty of
Paris, this treaty r conciled France with Burope 5 it
satisficd all her t we interests, secured all her real ad-
vantages, all the elements of prosperity and glory,
which a people catled to one of the first plices in the
European system could reasonably desir, and only
took from her that which was to her, under the de-
ceitful exterior of great national eelot, an inex haus-
t ble source of sufferings, of ruin, and of misery. Phis
Treaty was even an immense benefit for a country,
reduced by the madness of its Chiet to the most dis-
astrous situation, (1 ) :
The Atlied Powers would have betrayed their in-
terests and their duties, il, as the price of so much
moderation and generosity, they had not, on signing
the Treaty, obtained some solid advantage ; but the
golid object of their awbiuion was the peace of Bu-
rene and happiness of Prance. Never, in treating
with Covueete, would they have consented to the
contivomw which they grated toa Government which
@ while offtring to Europe a pledge of security and
etabilisy, releved them from requ ring trom France
the yuatantccs whieh thes had demanded under its
former Government.” (2.) — This clause is INse pia
ble fiom she Treaty of Paris; toabolish it, is ta break
this (reatur The tommel consent ol the .Freneh mae
tion te the refnin of Bonaparte to the throne would
be equivalent to the declaration of war against Kue
rope; for the state of peace did not exist between
Europe and France, execpt by the treaty ot Paris,
and the treaty ot Paris ts incompatible with the po-
wer of Bomeparte.
It this reasoning had need of further support, it
micht be fount in the very off r of Bonaparte to ra-
tify the Treaty of Paris. —Uhis treaty had been seru-
puously observed anc executed; The transactions of
the Comeress of Vtonna were only its supplements
and developements: and without the new attempts

relics of existence; whoat the moment when the na-
fions of Murope were giving thenselves up tothe
hope of a durable tranquillity, meditated new cata.
strophe; aad by adouble perfidy towtrds the powers
who h d too generously spared him, and towards a
Government, which he could not attack without the
blackest (reason, usurped a throne which he had re-
nounced, and which he never occupied except for the
misery of France and the world. This man has no
other guarantee to propose to Europe than his word.
At‘ter the crucl experience of 15 years, who would
have the courage to accept Chis guarantes 2 and ifthe
French nation has really embraced his cause, who
could have any longer respect the security which it
could off r?
Peace with a Government placed in such hands,
and composed of sach elements, would oaly be perpe-
tual state of uacertainty, anxiety and dang cr. No
Power being able effectually to disarm, the people
would enjoy none of the advantages of a true peace ;
they would bé overwhelmed with expences of all
Kinds, confidence not being able to establish any
Where, tadustry and commerce would every where
lingnish; nothing would be stable in pobitieal rela-
lions; asullen discontent would spread over all coun-
(rics; and from day to day, Lurepe in alarm would
expect a newexplesion. The Sovereigns have evr-
tainty not misunderstood the interest of theie people,
in judging thatan open war, with all its inconveni-
euces and i's sacrifices, is perferable to such a state
of things, atthe measures which they have adupted

The opinion of Europe on this great occasion is
pronounced ina manner very pesilive and very so-

been inore tathfally iaterpretcd thin at a momen
when the representatives of all the powers Were ase
sembled tu consolidate the peace ot the world,
Ds it necessary lo publish anew Declaration ?
The observations which the Committe have just
presented imrnish (he answer to the lass question which
remains to be examin ad. It considers,
I. “That the Declaration of the 18th) March wa.
chetated £0 the Powers, by reasons of such evident jase
tice and such d*visive w ihr, that none of thes -
paistties bv which a is pretended lobe attacked can

2. ‘That these reasons remain in atl their force, and
(he che ebanges which have i aet oceured since the
Declaration of the 13th of March, have produce. tire

bherefore, the Committee is ef opinion, that is
would be usehoss ty publisis a tresh Dc elaration.
