etj -would certainly bo handed GTcr tj a lunacy ;
cc-rai-asioo? This lamentable crusade by the
Jacobins of Monarchy, ha cr.-atcl not alarm but
irritation. If there be one matter clear in the j
tangled web of French politics, it is that the ;
t'ornte Chamrd's day is f.ver, and that that j
tf hi heir "expectant," xha Comte de Paris, is '
enrolled among the improbabilities. Ihe future
of this country is r ecoming painfully uncertain, j
and all the result of want of distinct er-ecch and j
consistent conduct on the jart of the majority in j
the Assembly, which emr loys emj irical remedies, j
that hardlv conceal the diW, still le.-s suppress
it, nni at" best, but calm the rain for a jsin ,
moment. Refusing to organize the Republic, j
incapable t rest'irc a Kin, the majority voted j
the only mrtlux rirnJi j-'-iblc the rrulongation j
of McMahons powers, but designedly hesitated j
to organize them, to regulate above all the fcuc-
cession to the o'Jce in case ot vacancy, nencc, mu
c-ause of the present trouble. The coalition was
only powerful to overthrow Thiers, and this in
gratitude towards that patriot and statesman is
now being 1 llowed by its natural Nemesis.
To organize Septennate becomes then not alone
a matter of necessity but of national safety ; the
door will be thus legally closed against the three
rival saviours of France, and the wishes of the
country carried out for a Constitutional Septen-

Republic. liesides, when tlie necessary laws are
voted for the transmission of power to a new
Assembly, the long-l-oked for dissolution of the
present C hamber must come off as a matter of
course. Among the present die-hard deputies
there will be much weeping and gnashing of
teeth, for the place which knows them shall know
them no more. liefore the conciliatory and con
servative Republic that will be founded, inde
pendent of extreme parties, Monarchists may be
gratiliol with the luxury of dying game. The
l$onapartits keep moving, stage-fashion ; the
same rank and file after making their bow, troop
behind the scenes to come to the front again.
Distinguished men rally to the Republic like
Thiers, Remusat, lVrier, Say, &c, but none to
Since three years an idea has taken possession
of the people, that of the principle of power
being its property ; and the more they reflect on
the accumulated deceptions of the various sys
tems of Monarchies they Lave tried, the more
they familiarize themselves to the idea of being
their own master. They decide themselves to be
king, and resolve to have henceforth only servants.
There are recalcitrants who ore rebel towards the
law which ordains that society tends to pasa
from the aristocratic to the democratic state ; the
evolution may be slow or rapid, but it is certain,
nnd never occurs a second time in the eame social
existence. Once cro6?ed, there is no return.
France has passed through this evolution, and at
the present there is no aristocratic institution in
the land, which accounts for the precarioueness
of Monarchy. The latter having no roots withers
away. This condition of things on the other
hand, menaces with danger and nullity nil plans
tending to stifle the representation of public
opinion, either by mutilating universal suffrage,
or overriding it by a packed Senate. The people
do not view their electoral system as perfect, still
less are they opposed to its improvement, lhey
object however to royalists improving away their
republic, and insist on showing, that one is never
better served, than when served by himself. It
is in Cluna only that a house is burned down to

Twenty millions of francs, in new taxes have

they must. We arc becoming as accustomed to

Algiers attacked the colonial municipality, and the
Governor, General Chanzy, put the chief town of
Algiers at once under Martial Law ! The French
however have never been happy in their plans for
making colonies great, glorious, and free. Per
haps as a means for consoling us, by the present
ation of a spectacle that we might be worse, M.
IJoialisle has produced another of his volumes on
the national finances during tho reign of the
Grand Monarch, nnd of the Grand Misery, for
extremes meet. From 1C83 to lG'J'J tho only
defence against the tax collector, was to enter
into holy orders or secure a patent of nobility.
The more Louis XIV. waxed in pride, the more
the country groaned under suffering. No sooner
had His Majesty made peace at one 6ide, than he
undertook war at another. Fighting was as im
portant to his rank, as building palaces and tak
ing mistresses, of which all had this in common,
to be very costly. Colbert and Vauban having
remonstrated with the King on his dreadful ex-
Eenditure, incurred his dispjeasure, and died of
roken hearts. F.very person then ns now, dis
liked paying taxes, and sought all means to avoid
doing so ; at last between privileged and purchased
exemptions, the burdens fell altogether on the
very poor, who, if in arrear, were huddled
together, men, women and children, in a lilack
Hole of Calcutta prison, till they raised the wind,
for there was the devil to play. Another plan
as to pontino defaulters in dry wells, believing
as the authorities did, that qn arijvicg at the
bottom, truth would be discovered. The revoca
tion of the Edict of Nantca forced half a million
j of the richest and most industrious of the popu
lation to sock reiuge irom tne aragoons, whose
duty was to sabre the Huguenots into going to
mai-8. In flying, the Proteftants brought their
wealth with them, and thus impoverished tho
mother country. The Jews were next attended
to, but the diggings did not turn out successful
in this quarter. Towns were permitted to post
pone paying their ordinary liabilities, so as to
raise loans for the royal exchequer ; public ( fficcs
were auctioned to the highest bidder, and the
same appointment was held by several indviduals
who discharged its duties in turn, for the appoint
ment secured exemption from paying taxes. The
civil servioo thus represented a swarm of locusts,
who purchased the right to devour the miancial
life of the nation.
The King indulged in his whims all the same.
He expended nine million pounds to bring the
waters of the Eure to Versailles, and though the
works were abandoned, upwards of ten thousand
men perished in cutting the channel through a
scries of dismal swamps. After investing in a
competitive " purchase " for the civil service, the
buyer could by pickings and stealings, more than
recompense himself the outlay. Another scourge
was the billeting of the soldiers on the inhabit
ants of a town. Householders could purchase
exemption, so that in Metz in 1693 the exemptions
were so numerous, that there was no lodgment to
be had for the troops ; the very poor had quitted
the town. When people could not pay their
raxes dragoons were billeted upon them, "just as
they were on Protestant families, who declined to
be converted. When all was carried oS" to acquit
tl e taxes, there yet remained to sell the doors
and windows of the houses ; the wood made fuel
and the iron work was valuable ; behind these
was the menace of the prison, the hulks, and the
gibbet. In 1CSG the King sent his plate to be
coined, and some of the nobility and convents
did the same. Sorcerers appeared with " divining-rods"
to indicate hidden treasures; jet the
famine continued to be sore in the land ; the pop
ulations adopted begging as a profession ; they
fed on wild herbs and rotten chestnuts ; these
exhausted, they died off, after living like beasts
of prey in the woods, as the towns drove them
outside the walls. At Pau, an attempt was made
to " magazine " the beggars, who died like
emmet. While many fed on ground hazelnut
shells, the grain was carried off to feed the sol
diers. The wheat crops were cut before being
fully rire ; houses were forced open in the name
of the ia'v to search for concealed flour. Some
dioceses lost by famine 00,000 persons in a year ;
in others, the deaths were 400 a day. France
was a grand hospital, desolate, and without pro
visions. The Te Dcvm was everywhere chanted ;
it was heard ; for as Voltaire observed, the people
died of misery to its sound. Finally, death huv
ing done its work, the survivors had at last suffi
ciency of food.

times, for the church has never prohibited the j
banr.s between 1 obiter and the stomach. The j
f ious journals while giving full particulars of the
play, denounced the impiety cf the author. :
Would they wish tim to resemble Racine, who j
when dying regretted all the immortal works that
he had written? Owing to the adoption of the '
Roman ritual, the chap-els representing the Pas- j
sion, were this year draped in white, and looked ,
very effective; suggesting hope and courage, j
around Ills tomb. The sacred relies at Notre I
Iamc were objects of veneration as usual ; like j
other cathedral.-, flat of Paris possesses the j
i4 true crown of thorns," portions of the cross, j
some cf its nails, ac, and faith saves. The ,
church bells according to custom remained silent j
from Thursday traveled to Rome as the legend j
says till Easter Sunday, when they rang in the j
happy morn. The Free Thinkers it is said ab- j
stained from Lucullian banquets on Good Friday, j
f.-r it is popularly believed the consumption of
beef-steaks and sausages, on that day, vexes the
church, while fortifying their creeds.
Easter Sunday wis wet, and the churches and
cabs were filled with peop le, for the musical high
masses are ever ittractive. Fuimerly France
observed 44 holidays, exclusive of Sundays, so
that La Fontaine complained the people were
ruined by an excess of fete. Colbert struck out
14 without consulting the church, and the Arch
bishops nearly suppressed the remainder. Easter
Sunday is generally a family day in Paris, where
the old and young folks are occup-ied opening
eggs, fabricated in ill colors, materials and sizes,
and filled with toys, eugar plums, smoking appa
ratus, &c. The Gingerbread Fair is very poor
this year, political tharacters have been excluded,
thanks to the vigilaice of the censors, Den Carlos
is perhaps the only notoriety honored in brown
pastry. A dealer in sausages attracted notice
from his sign board, wherein it was asserted, that
while the most beautiful works of art crumble to
dust in time, sausajes become only the harder,
the better to immortalize pork. The project of
holding a competitive exhibition of all the tum
blers, jugglers, tight-rope dancers, and natural
history phenomena has failed.
Here is a drama from real life. Few persons
who have mixed in Parisian society during the
last seven years but have encountered the Misses
Bell, three American young ladies, rich and re
markably beautiful. They were the sensation of
every ball room, as well as its complement. The
most admired of the three young graces was
Carry. She disappeared since last autumn ; her
family Btating in an embarrassed way, ehe had
gone home." There was a skeleton in the
cupboard in this princely abode. Carry, in 1873,
had taken it into her head to sit for her Etatue,
as the duchess of Fcrrara did in a state of nudity,
for Titian ; the eminent sculptor executed his
task ; the marble created a sensation at last year's
Art Exhibition, and at its close, the figure was
deposited in a mortuary chapel in Pore Laohaise
Cemetery, constructed previously by Carry. All
this was a secret between her and the artist.
Last summer sho encountered the latter at the
sea side, nnd her folly led to her seduction ; in
September finding herself to bo enceinte, she de
manded her Beducer to marry her; he refused,
alleging his "reputation" would sutler, as the
hasty marriage would suggest a pecuniary motive,
and second, he could have no confidence in a
young lady who had voluntary Bat for her statue
as she had done. Carry then acquainted her
father ; who after suggestions, gave her a bundle
of bank notes, and 6hook hands with her for ever.
She then hired an attic in one of the back streets,
overlooking the Champs Elysees ; she sought a
midwife to effect an abortion, gave her nearly all
her money, but hesitated at the deed. A few
days ago she was recognized mounting painfully
to her garret, a little bread nnd a cup ol milk in
her hand, by a gentleman who had known her in
happier days ; she was starving, and an old black
silk dress was nearly all hor clothing. Ho
brought her a chicken and 6ome wine ; assisted
her to her miserable bed, watched by her while
i t u . - nuoi eiicu woao, nuu
when going away, left orders to be summoned in
case of an emergency. His valet called hjm dtir
ing the night ; the poor 6tranger " was in the
paiua of child-birth, attended by a cook, who
came to her aid on hearing her cries. The doctor
arrived ; tho accouchement was difficult, but tho
child was born nlive, and, ceding to her prayera,
was placed in the mother's arms. She hugged
tho infant so, that it was suffocated ; she was in
an access of fever ; to quiet her, sha was given
iier dead child to press to her breast, and while
endeavoring to make it suckle, while singing to
it, and rocking it, she indulged in a loud laugh.
Carry was dead. She and her child now sleep in
their sumptuous tomb, beneath the famous statue,
surrounded with white lilacs. This 6trange,
eventful history, is already being prepared for
Li the middle agoa tho apothecaries and mid
wives were sworn functionaries ; the former prom
ised to live and dio in the Christian faith ; to give
no aperients without a doctor's order ; to admin
ister no poison, not even to an enemy ; to guard
the secrets of the sick, and never to change the
prescriptions of the physicianp. The sages-femmcs
undertook to practice no abortions, nor to make
any secret accouchemcnts.
As it did not pay to invent further particulars
about Rochefort's escape, the journals are com
pelled to await the arrival of the evaders for the
latest and fullest intelligence.
A religious work has appeared, " Saint-Napoleon,
patron of warriors." Ministers did right
to accord it permissiQn to be hawked about for

Dumas, the elder, was ever up to the chin in
debts ; one day he received 5,000 francs from his
publisher ; he placed them on the chimney piece.
A poor writer called on him for a loan ; Dumas
directed him to the chimney and to help himself;
"oh!" replied the visitor, "there is nothing
there." " Well," said Dumas, " for the future
come at eight o'clock in th morning, befor my
creditors arrive at nine."
A lady accompanied with her maid, having
f.ought a postage stamp at the Post Qffice; re
quested Abigail to put out her tongue, w hen she
rubbed the stamps on it, and then placed the
fiinhre on the letter.
A very stout lady, caused inconvenience to a
gentleman at mass by her size; he remarked,
that voluminous persons ought to stay at

All the r.c.v appointments which Mr. Dirraeti
has to make, on being commissioned to form a
new Administration, present a total of only forty
five. One of these forty-five is a remarkable
man, of whom to our knowledge, no biography
has yet appeared. The main facts of his career,
as popularly believed, because known, in London,
are as follows : Less than twenty-five years ago
Mr. William Henry Smith, who was re-elected
M. P. for Westminster, the other day, by a
majority of nearly C.000 votes, literally was ' a
newsboy" in the streets of London, running
from one publishing office to another with hz
Lundle of newspapers under his arm, and literally
on foot in that active industry, from five in the
morning up to eight o'clock at night. He was
quick, steady, civil, reliable and intelligent, never
attempting to pass off yesterday's unsold paper
for to-day's unobtainable one, and soon, by
dowmiglit strength of character, making himself
a eurt of chief among his class. When, much
more than at present, there was a practice of
lending out the Times and other London mrning
papers at a penny an hour, from eeven in the
rooming until five" in the afternoon, when much
read copies were dispatched by mail to country
6ubscriiJc.ro at half-price, young Smith's business
in this particular line grew so much and so rap
idly that he had to take a small shop near the
Strand, which is in the vicinity of uw: of the
London newspaper offioes, and to employ a num
ber of reliable assistants. Finally he biruck on
the idea of j.urehasinghcaeliisive light to sell
newspapers, magazines id books at the principal
railroad statio"" in tK- "-Wish Islands, and the
business thu erenti-d riri ilv became s : important
aiid lucrative that publishers fjund it t - their
interest to ia what were call-. d " railway edi
tions " of tiicir m;.;t p. polar b v.k-, neatly
bound, printed in ban is-use at:d elenr typ-e. ai.d
low-priced. At Mr. ::;i:h"s railway stands the
sale of ther-e, and etn uf e. :Iier bo.-ks (f r

appcnted parliamentary Secretary of the Treas

that a Minister shall not also he in trade. Mr.
Smith, who is a we'.l-edacated and a self-educated
man, has not yet reached middle age. He wa !
one of the best "speakers in the H.iie of Commons ;
during the five years (December, InjS, to Janu- ;
ary, 1S74,) of his having a seat in that Assembly. ;
Eminently a self-made man, he is not perpetually I
stating the fact, nor ever desiring to siur it over, j
Disraeli will greatly popularize himself and his j
Ministry by calling on a man of the pvple to j
occupy a higher position in it. ;
The new Chief Justice is a man, in the English j
phrase, " with no nonsense about him." He is j
plain, solid, studious, laborious, p ainstaking, and j
has no political sects to pay. He is a eonserva- !
tive, and yet has kept abreast the march of j
events. He is so far interested in current history ;
as to have political convictions ; but there is j
nothing in his antecedents that indicates tiiat no
will have a sense of partisan obligations on the
bench. The democratic newspapers that are de-
Ereciating him and speaking disrespectfully of
im are making a mistake. Grant would not
have done as well again if he had been given
half a dozen chances. Cincinnati Comnurcial.
