FRANCE SUPPRESSES LIBERTY OF THE PRESS
King Louis XVIII of France has revoked all privileges which had been granted to public journals, and has appointed censors of the press.
This measure is in accordance with other repressive measures instituted by the restored monarch which have caused considerable disquiet in London, but seem to enjoy the approval of the other Great Powers. The government has adopted a policy of non-interference, however, much to the concern of the opposition.
Meanwhile, attention is focused on the fate of Marshal Ney, who was brought prisoner to Paris four days ago.
