OUR PARIS LETTER.
Tabu, Juno 11
Political trenta are shaping themseltes and will
very aoon impose. For the instant the silence, or
defensire attitude of the new Cabinet is as secondary
aa tae voting of something constitutional. The eyes
of the country follow with anxiety and ferrent wishes
for aaeeeaa, the adjunction not coalition of the
moderate royalists, or independent Orletnists, with
th. circumspect EepubUcana, to form a majority in
ui Assembly, suhckdi iu prvciiu iu v.
seren years, ani placing MacMahon as its Const it u-
tiosal President, with arrangements to obviate any
inconvenience flowing from bis death, or resignation
The progress of Imperialism compela the onion of
parti ea who deaire to be spared a restoration of the
Second Empire, aod aa only the latter and Republi
canism seriously occupy public attention the issue of
the negotiations for the union of moderate deputies,
is looked forward to with anxiety. Accomplished,
this salvation majority will dictate to the transition
Cabinet its programme, or will supercede it, and
bring matters gradually, calmly, and legally to that
long-ighed for deaideratum the dissolution of the
WiU the royalist tail, in presence of the common
danger, follow the aage advice of him who was once
one of their own Thiers and perform that act of
reason vole the Conservative Republic? Acta alone
must show, for the current hiatory of France must
now be devoted to action. Legitimists and Orleanists
are as dead ia the country as tha Leaguers aud
Frondists. They accidentally possess aa obstructive
power in the Assembly. By the desired secession of
that section of the liberal royalists, known as the
Centre Droit, Orleanists can yet make a little of
the amtnde honorable, they not only owe to France,
bat to the liberal world. It was their late de Broglie
Ministry that succeeded ia throwing confusion into
the pablio mind. Too blind to perceive it had do
chance in modern France, Orleanism, in its fury,
attacked everything Republican, replacing officials of
that profession of faith, by even agents of the ex
Empire, having none of their own. Were the pres
ent condition of thiugs to last. Imperialism might
count opon success from the fatigue and the disap
pointment of the people in conservatives and moder
ates to found even a limited stability. For political
feebleness and depression, Imperialism would be
hailed as a grateful tonic.
But before France would afford the strongest proof
of her decadence accepting a Bonapartist regime in
fault of capability to govern herself it is but fair
to honorably try the Repnblio with Republicans first.
We have had that form of government with Reds,
with Monarchists, with even Bonapartists, but not
yet with Conservative, who are at the same time
Republicans from patriotism. When the Repnblio
shall be decreed as the legal form of government,
and conspiracies against it punished as treason,
when its friends, and Dot its enemies, shall be en
trusted with its control and direction ; when the state
of Siege shall be raised and the machinery of arbi
trariness discarded as well as utterance towards
opponents; when the free working cf the elections
shall be left to the electors, and officials and also the
clergy ordered to mind their own business; when
every Frenchman shall be eligible to serve his coun
try, and free to adore his political saint so long as
the idolatry does not exhibit disrespect towards what
exists, and disobedience towards the law then
France can count upon being great, glorious and
free. This experiment has yet to be tried; the pre
liminaries for its execution are being executed. If
they fail through the perversity of moderate politi
cians, of men who have eyes, bat refuse to see; who
have ears, bat decline to hear then Imperialism
may be righteously invoked ; this time with a full
knowledge of its ways and means. Not only would
an unexclusive and sagely administered Republic
secure " the greatest happiness for the greatest
number" at home, but would be the strongest
pledge for peace abroad. Any dynasty that the
chapter of accidents may restore to France will be
fatally driven to seek popularity by taking up the
Alsatian question henoe danger and tribulation.
Only the government of the nation by the nation
can keep this unsettled account In tha Laok ground
make it wait. Prussia will never provoke France
before the latter be ready to take up the glove, for
she has alliances to secure as much as to replace and
reorganise her military materiel. The French are
sobered by late events; they have not the slightest
inclination to rush in where angels fear to tread.
They laugh at Prussian taunts, and the German
canard, that they mean to absorb Belgium and to
oppose a revised edition of the Ilohenzollern monar
chy in Spain, are as amusing as their own. France
has, for line of conduct, to gain strength by reposing,
to repair what is shattered out of the savings of a
higher developed industry; to husband power by ac
cumulating wealth; to esteem by being wise, and
thus comrntnd success. She knows the time is
coming when her alliance will be sought in the
market; and when the opportunity arrives for re
dressing the Sbylock clauses of the treaty of Ver
sailles, European governments will be then actors
not as in 1870, spectators and candid friends. Ger
many may be excused, being in a hurry to discount
the future and the inevitable; her bloated armaments
are for her an exhaustion, and in removing and shut
ting np Bishops, in seeking new ones, in watching
the socialism France has bequeathed to her advanc
ing ia her body politic, she has enough of work to
occupy her for several years. There is no reason why
France ought not to prove as good a " big brother "
for Austria and. Italy as Prussia, and Spain may yet
settle down into something rational and comprehen
sible so as to be wooed. If England decides upon
remaining an Indian and a Colonial, instead of an
European power, well and good; there remains then
only Russia to flirt with, to wed or to jilt, according
to circumstances. One thing is certain, the age of
Platonio alliances and international societies of arbi
tration is past. To fight together through thick and
thin, constitutes the only bond henceforth between
Parisians do not allow politics to interfere with
their enjoyment of life, and all they perhaps feci in
cline! to demand from . aristocrats become republi
cans, or republicans become aristocrats, is " to keep
out of their sunshine." The rush is very general
this year to reside in the country, as before the in
vasion ; citizens may be excused a natural desire to
enjoy green fields after a seven months surfeit of
discussions of some thousand forms of government,
Brobdignagian controversies relative to the big and
the little euds of eggs. This rush to spend the day
far from the turmoil of the city is a proof that busi
ness is not so very bad, for the French character is
opposed to spending a sous on a luxury, if such
would cripple the wants of necessity. It strikes me
that the babies are more numerous, and that there
are more youngsters in general; proof that the pop
ulation of France will pick itself up. The camber of
young married couples is very apparent, and who
feel proud of their olive branches. Then the fair sex
have emerged from that compulsory economy which
condemned to make their old toilets go as far as pos
sible. Costa mes are everywhere as fresh and as
varied as the Sowers, displaying that instinctive
taste which only a Frenchman possesses, and that
enables her to become charming with elegant nothings
that only cost but a few sous, but never degenerate
into gewgaws. Some hold tbat it is their n at oral
gracefulness of carriage which enables French ladies
to appear to such advantage, and at so trifling an
outlay for clothing. Be the cause what it may,
every francaUe has the look of being well-dressed,
tbat is, her dresses mould her figure; there is noth
irg heavy, nothing too much, nothing disproportion
ate, and above all no mistake about colors.

I Saturday is the grand day lit the tradesman an J his

pr apect cf such arlicltt dt Paris.

corporation. It his beeo called open to expel four

CommuuUt proceedings. The committee or jury of
discipline ejected on a divided vote, two of the ob
noxious literati, rather insignificant people, but de
clined to eliminate ct-Foreign Secretary Grouasef,
who has escaped with Rochefort and Felix Pyat.
j This is an odd. kind of purification for a society of
j communists by retaining the chief sinners. However,
j they manage these thing-j differently in France. It
would te better not reooguio politics at all, but then
the government could hardly be expected to continue
a subsidy to a society that could not decline applica
tion from Felix Pyat fr money to live, or from
Grousset to defray hU traveling expenses from New
Caledonia. The only qurstion not examined is the
utility cf the society itself. The calamities of the ex
pelled authors will be brought op on appeal, and the
ordinary tribunals will be invoked toorder the expul
sion of Felix Pyat. Literature, like journalism, in
France is unhappily to a great degree a matter of
personalities, which naturally neutralises much of
the good that might otherwise be effected.
At the grand national steeple chase Parisians were
drowned; at their Derby, they as a compensation,
were roasted. Never was the heat so torrid as on
Sunday last, and never was the crowd so great and
the appliances for alakiog thirst so deficient. How
the Cointe de Paris might have earned Immortality
had be ordered out a few barrels of wine from his
uncle d' Auniale's cellar ! Not a racing man but
could have voted the due Stadtholder then and there,
with the reversionary interest to the nephew. A ride
to Cbantilly, even on the steps of the railway car
riage, is worth undertaking to see the forest in the
month of May. That happy being, "the lover tf
pature " will be rewarded, and if he have in addition
a feeling heart, he could sympathise with thousands
of his fellow creatures who lost their " good bit cf
money," owing to the favorite being eclipsed by the
nose of an outsider whose lowly merit no one esti
mated. A curious innovation in high life marriages is to
be noticed, that of only inviting young, and above
all, single persons to the lunch; the grave and heavy
relatives being united at a monster dinner. It is
also a compliment of a delicate nature for the bride
groom to present the bride with a prayer book printed
in as many languages as she speaks, the vignettes
also to be as expressive, as an additional tongue.
Since January, the practice is becoming more general
for French newly married couples to travel during
The carriage accident by which the due de Moucby,
husband of the Princess Murat, had his thigh broken
in four places, reveals a phase of social manners.
The French seem to be going mad on the subject of
horses, whether for racing, trotting, or for vehicles,
aud among the crane de la creuie of society the suc
cess for a gentleman's Brougham is to have it yoked
to a horse of run-away pretensions, and driven by a
lad a smart tiger, who as in the due de Mouchy,
has not the strength to control the animal when in
dulging in the preliminaries of a bulk. To commit
your lifo to such an experienced arrangement is con
sidered high courageous. To go out in your carriage,
and return with broken bones oa a stretcher, is truly
a droll fashion.
Some reprisals are taking place respecting Bun
y a n't Pilgrims'" Progress. There are two editions
circulating in France; one is altered to suit Catholics,
the original being accepted by Protestants. The
latter are now bringing out their volume with the
The " Murphy Family " havo become in France,
Morfi, or Morphi," tracing their origin from the
Greek, o .Morphi. The learned seem to have at last
established, that it was a member of this classical
family, who was guilty of ordering a roll of the
drums to drown the voice of Louis XIV., when on
the scaffold. Two other points are occupying the at
tention of antiquarians : Was ' Cinderella's slipper"
in glass, and was the man with the iron velvet was
the real material mask, an ancestor or the elder
twin brother of Louis XIV. of Napoleon I. T If this
relationship were established, it might explain why
the Legitimists and Bonapartists manage to so often
stable their horses together. Perhaps this may ac
count for the boast of the Imperialists, that their
chief unites the blood of Divine Right with the doc
trine of appeal to the people.

A question likely to excite considerable interest
is lightly touched upon in the Governor's speech.
We refer to proposals which it Is well known have
been long under consideration for the encourage
ment ot a trade with the thousand islands datting
the ocean regious, of which Auckland is the natu
ral centre. These islands could exchange their
tropical produce for our wheat and cattle and tim
ber and a largo and profitable trade would soon
follow a combined effort by a public company
working with adequate capital. We bare iron
foundries and ship-building yards and other
industries requiring the skill of white men for their
success, for which the tropical climate of the
Central Pacific islands will always be unsuitable.
The inevitable annexation of the Fiji Group must
lead to the opening np of other portions of this
vast archipelago of which Auckland is geogropbi
cally the best and nearest seaport in higher lati
tudes. We shall await with interest details of the
proposals which it is understood have been under
consideration of the Government for the past six
months. As the session proceeds, no doubt other
questions will be brought forward by independent
members, but so far as present appearances go,
it will be an unusually dull and short session.
Unless dissolved the present Parliament will meet
for another session, when its term will have ended
and the general elections follow.
The Hawaiian tschooner DauUless was cleared
out at the Customs yesterday for Norfolk Island
and Noumea, New Caledonia' with a full cargo.
She was still lying at anchor in the stream at a late
hour last night, but it is expected that she will sail
to-day on her cruise.
Dutes are to July 14. The annexationists are
disappointed and apparently almost tired of wait
ing for the acceptance by England of the sovereign
ty of the Islands. The feeling appears to be gaining
ground that perhaps they have been too hasty in
Speaking of the resources of the group, a corres
pondent at Levuka says :
With the abundant and varied resources for the
creation of commerce lying, as it were, at the very
doors of the planters, it is really astonishing that
hitherto very few. have turned their attention to
anything but the production of cotton. Now, how
ever, sugar appears to be taking a place amongst
Fijian productions, and will doubtless ere long be
a considerable source of wealth. But there are
other products natural to the sxtil which might be
turned to good account, and at, comparatively
speaking, a trifling cost. Arrowroot grows in the
greatest abundance, and yet scarcely any of the
planters have paid any attention to the cultivation
of this valuable plant. The natives about Levuka
produce a little, which they occasionally bring
into town and dispose of to the townspeople.
Roughly ns it is prepared by them, it ia of a quality
fir superior to any that cau be purchased in the
shops either hro or in Sydney ; and were it pro
perly cultivated and prepared, its exportation
would, no doubt, be both extensive and remunerative.-
Tupioca could also be produced in- large
quantities an 1 ol a superior quality. Hemp, equal
to Manila, could be produced in any quantity, in
a'most every island of the group, and the machin
ery necessary for its manipulation is of so simple
a character that very little capital would be re
quired to start a manufactory of this kind. The
s i mo kind of plaintain, or banana, from which the
