LA FAYETTE.

The name of La FAYETTE is well known throughout the whole civilized world. He first rendered himself conspicuous during the revolution which terminated in the independence, of the United States of America. At the termination of the war, when about to embark for France, the following memorable words occur in his farewell speech before the Congress :-"For a nation to love liberty, it is sufficient that she knows it: for a nation to be free, it is sufficient that she wills it.” A few years afterwards, when the flame of liberty broke out in France, La Fayette took the command of one of the armies; but being disgusted with the atrocities which marked the early stages of this revolution, he resigned his command, and retired into privacy. About three years since he visited America, and was received and entertained as a national guest. After remaining some months, and receiving all the honours and marks of distinguishing regard which the Americans could bestow, he returned to France, and still lives in his accustomed retirement. Our readers will be pleased to see his Autograph.
