The English are very much out of favour with the emigrants, as well on account of the stripping of the Louvre as on account of not having shot all the liberaux. They had the folly to believe that the Allied troops would merely make war for the emigrants’ interests, and after having put to death a considerable quantity of those who should be designated as rebels and Jacobins by them (the emigrants), would replace France in the exact position she was in 1789, and then depart.
Poor Marshall Ney’s fate is decided. He was sentenced to death, and the sentence was carried into execution not on the Place de Grenelle as was given out, but in the gardens of Luxemburgh at a very early hour. He met his fate with great firmness and composure. I leave Paris to-morrow for London.

 Louis Wirion (1764-1810), an officer of gendarmerie,
commander-general of the place de Verdun since 1804, was accused in
1808 of having extorted money from certain English prisoners quartered

before the end of the long proceedings, which do not seem to have
established his guilt, but had reduced him to misery and despair.—ED.
