By the Hebe, Capt. Brown, which arrived on Sunday last, after a passage of thirty-three days, we received London Papers to the 11th of May; . . .

In the New New [sic] York Advertiser there is an important cummunication [sic], in which it is stated, on the faith of an express from Nacogdoches, that the insurgents had nearly conquered all the kingdom of Mexico. They have taken the name of Americans; they declare they are no more Spaniards; when the sentries hail qui vive, the answer must be America. All the provinces of Coahuilla, Biscaya, Monterrey, La Colonia, &c. had revolted; all the European officers had been obliged to fly. "The grand plan is independence, and the expulsion of the European Spaniards." The Government troops refused to act; and the insurgents were in every place received by the people with acclamations of joy.

D. Miguel Moreno, who was appointed Secretary to his brother, D. Mariana Moreno, Deputy from Buenos Ayres, has arrived in London. The Deputy died on board the Fame two days after his embarkation. – We learn by this opportunity, that the revolution was proceeding in Buenos Ayres with every prospect of success; that the South American Cortes was immediately to be installed; and that the Members assembled consisted of all distinctions of nations, both Creoles and Indians.

The following is taken from a Work lately published in America.

Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast; for it is the number of a man; and his number is six hundred threescore and six. Rev. chap. 13 verse 18.

As letters are not commonly used to represent numbers, we must first infer from his passage that, to find its application, we must resort to some numerical series, simple, natural and regular, such as imagination may conceive or such as some Nation may have used. Secondly, I observe that as the proper name of a private man may also belong to many other individuals, the true name of a potentate, that which more especially designates him, is the one which is composed of that under which he reigns or has reigned, and of that which expresses his sovereignty. So the exact designation, the true name of the sovereigns who reigned at Rome under the names of Caligula, Nero, Alexander, is Emperor Caligula, Emperor Nero, Emperor Alexander, independently of any other name that each of them may have borne as a private man. A sovereign is denominated in a still more particular manner, when to the name under which he reigned and to that which expresses his sovereignty, is added that which expresses his characteristic personal qualification or surname. So in saying King Antiochus Epiphanes, King Ptolomeus Philadelphia, King Richard Cur de Lion, King Philip the Hardy, we designate those sovereigns in the most perfect manner, and much better than we could do by the addition of all other names which might have belonged to them as private men. The name of Capet, which belongs to all the sovereigns of the third dynasty of France, and that of Bourbon, which, besides, is appropriate to several of the last of them, could not specify a single one in a precise or intelligible manner.
Moreover I observe that the name of Napoleon in his mother tongue is Napoleone.
After these preliminary observations, we shall clearly see the explanation of this passage.
One of the simplest series of number is this – 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100, 110, 120, 130, 140, 150, &c. It is in fact the same which is used in reckoning by unites, tens, hundreds, thousands, &c. since the number ten is the elementary ratio of both, a hundred being nothing else but ten times ten, a thousand being nothing else but one hundred times ten, ten thousand being nothing else but a thousand times ten, and so on. The first series then is but the element of the second. Now if we give to each letter of the alphabet the corresponding number of that first series, as is seen in the following lines-

The partizans of that man will undoubtedly exclaim – "Mere effect of chance! – it is but one of those remarkable singularities at which the stoical philosopher smiles." But what will they say of what follows?
The Greeks divided the 24 letters of their Alphabet in three series of eight letters each. The first represented units, the second tens, and the third hundreds. And let it be well observed that St. John wrote his Revelation in Greek, at Pathmos, one of the islands of Greece. Now if we divide the 24 letters of the French Alphabet in the same manner, as is seen in the following lines,

Of all the qualities of Napoleon impiety is undoubtedly the most characteristic. His blasphemies, which are spoken of at the end of this work, can leave no doubt of this being the fact. Of all that he has done, the machinations whereby he has striven to effect the debasement and prepare the ruin of Religion, whilst, in the eyes of the ignorant mob, he, at first, assumed its appearance, are the most remarkable part. It is very plain that the first care of an usurper covered with crime, would be first to respect, but secretly to undermine that religion and that morality which teach mankind to listen to the sigh of Innocence, to hate, to execrate the triumph of crime, and which so powerfully recall the people of France and Europe towards the Princes whom he has so wantonly spoiled of their rights. The violence, the threats, the seduction which he has practised in order to obtain from the Pope, whose hopes he ultimately frustrated, that odious concordate and the shocking coronation, in which we fancy that we see the abomination of the desolation, are the main trait in the Picture of his life; they mark the great Epochs of his history. Far from openly attacking Religion, he has at firs employed it for the establishment of his usurpation; and the impious man who shews himself at the foot of the alter [sic] betrays a credulous and misled people, has no other design in fact but to overthrow it; whilst he hides from them his infidelity which he, as will soon be seen, has himself solemnly proclaimed.
The name of impie (impious) is, in French, precisely that whereby St. Paul designates absolutely the Antichrist (I Thess. Cha. 55, v. 8) and then shall that wicked be revealed (et alors se revelera l'impie.)
Would it not be incredible that, in the midst of such a remarkable concordance of so many divers characters, a mere chance should give these two like interpretations of a thing written in the latter end of the first century? Would it not be still more inconceivable that these two interpretations should coincide in the person of a man who is at once an Emperor and a King – (Empereur et Roi)? . . .
The attentive reader will besides ask himself; how it happens, that the name under which that man had obtained the successes, which had determined his fame and which brought him to the empire, has not been that under which he has chosen to reign, and that the latter name is found to be precisely the one which so perfectly answers to this passage of the Scriptures.
