OUR PARIS LETTER.
Paris, November 17, 187-1.
There's email choice bvtween rotten apt lc, ac
cording to the proverb, and the steeple cLaso
anxietj to produce solution fur the slate of the
country, are too unsound to invite selection. It
is felt that in some vraj or other France will as
osaal fall on Ler feet, in saving herself and dis
posing of ber own destinies. The dissolution, ia
the cry, and a Republic without phrases, the
wish ; bet co where does any oca speak of na
tional suicide. The ofEcial organs assure as,
Allah be praised ! that Marshal MacMabon has no
idea of attempting a coup a" Eiat, so Parisians can
sleep tranquilly, and representatives deliberate in
peace. - The age of covps T El at besides is past.
The tranquility of France, as an eminent writer
once stated, depends upon the causes; that mens
minds be satisfied, and that their stomachs do not
suffer. Both these centres of content are ill, but
not diseased, for their owners are resigned. The
country is a model of patience and reason; many
trials have aflicted it since the peace, but it eub
mita to all without much complaint and with few
murmutings. Its patriotism ia on trial; it gives
no uneasiness, and demands only to work and to
live. The ricknees arises from parties who ignore
what alone is possible in the conditions that
events have created for France; they promise
however, to save ber, on condition that she will
surrender herself to them first as ber lords and
Tliere are projects before the Assembly sufficient
to satisfy all tastes, all ideas. Yet none can find
a majority to carry any one of them into law, be
cause the only majority that can be formed' deals,
cot with possibilities and realities, but with
chimeras ; chronic helplessness is thus the result,
and the dissolution is the only sovereign cure.
The Septcnnato may bo considered as only await
ing a splendid funeral ; it is a cake, but dough on
both sides; it is the sending ruffles to a nation
demanding a shirt. Tbo Legitimists have de
clared hostilities against MacMahon's office, and
not a little unfortunately against himself. But
the times are bo passionate, that if one were as
puro as ice or as chaste as snow, they cannot es
cape calumny. Not a Legitimist who communes
with his heart and is still, but can say of his chief
the Comte de Cbambord, be 41 Allures from afar,
yet, as I follow flies." The Moderates seem in
clined as Bob Acres, " to fight to prevent misun
derstanding;" they are always fusing and are
never fused; they are holding out, like Gold
smith's rustics, to tire each other out. The Bo
napartists make use of every friend every foe,
and assure the world in he most innocent fash
ion, " that the SJys are no rogues." However,
till tbey conquer the Republic they are co danger,
and once the country is constituted, they will re
tire like other phantoms. Matters are so unset
tled, nothing being clear save the dissolution of
the Assembly, that
"The doctrine to-day that ia loyally aoa&d,
To-morrow may bring aa a bailer."
In great emergencies says Puff, there is nothing
like a prayer. The Bishop of Orleans has issued
a pastoral calling upon the faithful of his diocese
to pray for the Assembly. Many hold it to be
past-praying for, and hence, perhaps, why the
effort is to be indulged in a fortnight before it
remeeta. A tout pdchi mise'recorde. The docu
ment inviting to prayer does cot recall the beet
days of the famous prelate ; it has all the hearti
ness, lot oothicg of the mellowness of age ; its
.massive rhetoric is larded with Latin, and is full
of hesitations and inconsequences, becauee it is a
pleading in favor of the Scptennate, which is
only an ambiguity. lie attacks both the Legiti
mists and the Republicans; the latter, with
Thiers at their head, being a disciplined troop of
demagogues, beyond the pale of salvation. But
the Legitimists it seems in opposing the Septen
nate, display hostility to the very designs of
Providence ! When will cultivated people re
linquish the reprehensible practice of seeing the
finger of Providence in party politics and lobby
combinations? When France decides to have the
real Right Divine element controlling her desti
nies, by re-occupying Rome and recognizing Don
Carlos, or bis treaties ambo Serrano, ebe will
never pass by Henri V.
Paris is about electing a new Manicipal Coun
cil ; the present was almost like another famous
body, chobtn too in a day of misfortune. The
aspirants for civic glory are basing their claims
on their politics ; business capacity is a mere
secondary consideration. Some of the out-going
Councillors have startled us by proposing as the
very essence or democracy, that their services
ought to be remunerated. Dr. Johnson observed,
that whoever wrote for nothing was an ass ; to
discharge the honorary duties of citizenship it
appears is nothing better. Yet there are thou
sands who would gladly give their time free,
gratis, for nothing, and there is no end of back
stairs influence employed to secure many public
appointments on the same terms, from the presi
dentship of a savings back, down to the functions
of a relieving officer. Man everywhere likes to
be clothed in a little brief authority. The voters
have a stronger claim for payment, as of late
between Legislative, Municipal, and Communal
elections, they are constantly on the road. Dur
ing the first revolution, citizens wero paid two
francs a night for attending the sectional meet
ings, and co better plan could have been devised
for securing a crowded audience. The National
Guards did not receive one-half that sum for
defending Paris against the Prussians. Another
unpalatable, and very untimely project, is that
for taxing capital ; the richer you are the more
you would be held. This is the tip of the ear of
communism. An income tax Is one thing, but to
strike capital even were it possible, is cot at all
the same. The Convention established a pro
gressive tax on capital and incomes, which at a
certain stage amounted to confiscation of revenue,
so that the rich were as badly off as the poor.
However, extremes meet, happily such "an
equal division of unequal earnings," has cot the
ghost of chance of being applied.
M. Guizot was considered as the Pope of the
Reformed Church of France, and it is rumored
bis mantle has fallen on his son-in-law M. Corne
lls de Witt. The schism among the Protestants
is assuming Tcry grave proportions, and xery
likely the ministry will have to invite the Assem
bly to untie tbe Gordian knot. There is in the
quarrel a great deal of bitterness; co-rcligionists,
like the members of a united family, arc far from
imitating those little birds that in their nest
- uuin oy racn man ts appnru
To ooe am all arc!, aoJ all are damo'd beatde."
The law and the prophets are certainly not in
favor of one, of the nearly two equal section?,
coercing the other, and yet those who demand to
be fortified a Confession of Faith, as well as thopo
who prefer finding strength In liberty, have rea
sons and prejudices that must be respected. Per
haps Protestantism here may become as split up
as in England, and which made a Frenchman de
plore, that England Lad three hundred religions
but only one sauce. Tbe latest statistics of the
French clergy were taken in 18G1 ; then there
were 86 Archbishops and Bishops, 4,417 Vicars
J and Cures, and SO, 190 Curates; the number of
Protectant clergymen was Ttey are 305
religious communities, poeresting nearly 13,000
principal or branch establishments, supporting
nearly GOO .000 peions of both sexes. The
landed pr.-rerty owntrl by these communities is
valued at over 109 millions of francs, producing
an annual revenue of ovt-r million?, indondent
of H million in the form of donations and be
quests. And there are Cynics who say still that
Faith is deal! !
November opens with two important religious
fetes; that of triumph, "All Saints," and the
other of humiliation, tbe Jour des Moris; it is
the custom still of some trades to have celebrated
a memorial mass for the repose of the souls of
their ancient comrades. Considering tbe violence
of French editors against one another, there
ought to be a guild of journalism , to invoke a
repose of their minds here below. Nearly all the
artizans of the city have never paid annual honors
to their patron saints. The cess-pool men have
still their bt. Clair, ad the tinkers St. Mathurin.
Musicians and warblers generally have yet St.
Cecilia, as ladies of an uncertain age have St.
Catherine. The Bonapartists have just celebrated
the fete of St. Eugenie, in the church of St.
Augustin. It was an occasion for counting the
friends of adversity and violet bouquets. .Under
Thiers, this annual manifestation of tbe violets
was suppressed, but the ex-President is just as
intolerant as any of his fellow countrymen. The
Queen of Spain put in an appearance, and all the
fine flower of Imperialism. There was a faint
Vive V Empereur ! which M. Rouher mistaking
for Vice-Empereur, quietly retired by a side door.
Fighting-editor Paul Cassagnac with his well
known snaffer, was cheered ; he deserves it, if not
for his fire-eating politics, at least for his bravery
during the war. Prince Napoleon was conspicu
ous by bis absence ; you could not expect him to
pray for the welfare of his mortal enemy. Like
so many other notabilities left out in the cold by
fortune, he is a waiter on Providence.
A sudden night of snow to chase away our
lingering St. Martin's summer, has forced every
one to eubscribe to the truth, that there is no
place like home provided it be very cozy, supe
rior to a club or a cafe, a concert or a theatre.
The ladies were equal to the sudden falling of the
gloss, and appeared instantly creatures of fur
and feathers after light cashmeres. " 'Tis to
their changes half their charms tbey owe." And
what changes besides. Every woman irrespective
of age and quality, desires to be more or less a
beauty a la mode, and for this, dress-makers,
milllincrs, corselicrs, ' perfumers, coiffeurs, boot
makers, &c, compete to make her young and
beautiful ; she wears the overturned bat, with
features unveiled, streaming hair, protruding
bust, wasp-waist ; a jupon pasted to the figure,
displayed tablier, boots with Louis XV. heels, so
coqucttiehly exhibited, as to allow the silk stock
ing to bo seen through tbe lacings. Such was the
toilet of an elegante, who on making tbe. tour of
tbe lake on Sunday last in her carriage, received
in her lap an unmannerly duck, that took the idea
of leaving its native element, to fly to another
haven of rest. The lady Las commenced a suit
against the municipal authorities for 2,000 francs,
damages inflicted on her cob to me by one of the
city's duck", whoso wings were not sufficiently
The authorities ever mindful of tbe necessities
of the poor and the rich, are about opening

the poor have thus an inducement to seek state
assistance. The interest charged is devoted to
support the sick and needy, so that it is tbo poor
supports the poor, as it is the rich by their costly
funerals, bury them. The Velocemen, as Veloci
pedists are called, have been aroused to a Eense of
their situation by posters announcing, that for
the future they mu6t avoid crowded thorough
fares, carry like dray-horees some kind of collar
bells, and displayed lamps at night' as the cabs.
Tbe well-known theatre the Chatelet, which the
Communists riddled and gutted, has been repaired
at vast expenso and converted into a popular
Opera-house. The experiment is full of risk, as
many failures must be encountered for an occa
sional run of luck. Democratic opera could
draw life and pleasure by representing many for
gotten German and Italian works, and drawing
on foreign, as well as home for young, musical
composers. Then the voices must be secured,
and such when excellent cost dear, and are soon
spirited away by higher terms. The Direction
has adopted one excellent reform, that of securing
your stall without extra charge by merely writing
and enclosing stamps. Another theatrical novelty
a new piece is being rehearsed called the Ma
niacs." Tbe Austrian Lieutenant Tuboiwitz, who rode
from Vienna to Paris on his seven year old mare
Caradoc not a yuccnly name inside fifteen days,
is likely to succumb to big dinners after escaping
the wear and tear of the roads. But think how
he was encouraged in his undertaking ; bis fiancee
Mile. Stolz, the cantatricc was awaiting him in
Paris ; her health was thus .deservedly drank at
one of the banquets, but not a glass was emptied
to the honor of Caradoc. On one occasion the
hero nearly came to grief, as bis German accent
and a pair of revolvers in hid breast led the peas
antry to mistake him for a Prussian spy. The
Prince de Ligne formerly rode that distance in
six days, but with relays of horsed; being lifted
saddle and all on each fresh steed, and when he
arrived in Paris, his boots had to be cut off in
strips, and be was carried into a feather-bed,
where he slep thirty hours consecutively.
There have been a few memorable sales recently;
the goods and chattels of the renowned actress
Mile. Mars, who died in 1847, have been at last
dispersed. Moreau, who has been guillotaired
lately for poisoning his two wives, having no
family, the law sold his effects. Mine. Tussaud
bought the bed on which the two women died ;
be had many books, a few in Latin ; among other
works " Paradise Lost " in French. In addition
to other curiosities, is the arrival of a Mexican
General, Uraga, famous for his " wooden calves."
Wonder if he- ever indulges in a, Bhiver my

like a Catherine wheel. A general Tom Thumb,
a citizen of the world, has been gathered to Lis
fathers ; he was accompanied to his little grave
by all tbe prodigies in Paris.
Victor Hugo has delivered a very eloquent
address over the grave of Mme. Meurice ; who
was reared by Ingres, and given away in mar
riage by the poet. Tbe conclusion of his oration
was received with cries of Vive Hugo ! Vive la
Republiyue, and mothers held up their infants for
the old man to kiss. The deceased was tho
bravest among the brave of the women of Paris
during the siege a model of family heroism and
patriotism. Hugo was not far wrong when he
intimated, that the resistance of Paris owed more
than much to the patience and courage of the

Bsfct Sc jar in Calilornia.
A late S;icrsn:ecl p.tper sv :
A recent tbil t; the Cipiul Lcti Sogir Factory
disclose! the fict that the iu:ituti. n is in the fu'.l
tide cf succesiful c jeratirn. At the recent Sti'e
Fair the suir eivl.il !fed tr this factory cailed forth
general a Juiiraticn, an J the Company was awarJel
a diploma of the bighast praie. At this factory the
work t-f rnakia sujar th;u jear will not be oer be
fore January. The work:ti.z ean will comprise six
mouths last year it was cr.ly three mouths. There
are now awaiting manipulation 0,'.) tons of a-jgar
fceets, and 4,000 ton to come fruru I) iiTiI!t?, in eo
county, and 2,000 toss at ill renwuiuug on Kuoiiey'a
ranch, in Brighton township. This year the lactory
is turning oat no sugar of ioferior quality. Tbe
kinds that will be made are powJered, crashed od
fine-crashed, to the extent cf a m.liioo and half of
pounds, which, with tbe refining cf the brown sugar
from last year, will inuVe a total for 1S74 cf two
millions of pounds of sugar. At tbe factory fifty
men are employed, composing two shifts, so that
the work goei constantly on Sundyi and week days,
days and nights. Next year the company will plant
in sugar beets a still greater acreage cf land. Tbe
palp from the bets has been purchased by A. & A.
Heilbron who, in a few weeks, will hae in stables on
the sugar factory grounds 300 head of cattle to be
fattened for the holiday. Chopped hay mixed with
the pulp makes excellent fodder for beetes."
Not a little amusement has been caused in commer
cial circles by the grave assertion, on the part of a
contemporary, that a reciprocity treaty with the Ha
waiian Kingdom would iuure exclusively to the bene
fit of tbe Islanders, because it would enable them to
build up a powerful influence in Washington, by
which they could control the sugar market of the
United States, and have things their own way. It is
Bot worth while to attempt refutation of so absurd a
proposition, but it is as we I to demonstrate some im
portant facts bearing on reciprocity. Our import
and export trade with the Sandwich Islands has been
gradually diminishing for several years past by rea
son of the duties imposed upon their articles of ex
port, notably sugar, and that commodity has been as
gradually findirg its way to Australia, and has been
the entering wedge to larger traffic in other articles
between the Islands and the British Colonies of Aus
tralasia. In proof cf our nssertio!, we cite the fol
lowing statistics: In VJ71,the total value of all imports
from the United States received in the Islands was
776,141, while the total value of imports from all
other countries was 710,264; but two years after.
the total value of imports from this country was re
duced to 529,982, showing a decrease of S24G.159;
while the imports from all other countries rose in one
vear 1872 to S8S8.342. being an increase of
122,078. The average value of imports from the
United States for 1871-2-3 was 6oO,UOO for each
year, and it is manifest that under the auspices of re
ciprocity nearly all the foreign goods consumed in
Hawaii Nei would be procured from this country to
the extent of over a million dollars each year, while
the products of that kingdom would have found
market here with profit to the producers and traders.
There is no doubt that with a reciprocity treaty the
consumption of American goods in tbe Islands would
be doubled, if not tripled, while tbe amount or du
ties recovered by our Government on imports of Isl
and products is steadily diminishing, and even at its
best, bears no fair comparison in point of national
profit with the results that would ensue from reci
procity. r. uommerciai tteraia.
Too Much Protection.
The result of recent elections held in a large sum
ber of States (says the Commercial Herald of San
Francisco) has been ascribed by political newspapers
to a variety of causes, but, to our comprehension,
none of them have revealed its true merits. Tbe
Credit Mobilier scandal, the salary fraud, the intem
perance of the temperance legion, the disturbances
in some Southern States, the third term humbug,
the carpet-bagging rascalities, the frequent instances
of corruption in office, and various other reasons
were undoubtedly influential in many instances, and
especially in those localities subjected to their direct
action, but we believe those agencies to nave been
mainly superficial the floating substances on the
besom of a stream which show which way the cur
rent tends but do not discover the cause of the
movement. AVe must go deeper. Too much protee
tion, too much tariff, too much legislation for rich
operators and too much imposition upon the great
army of consumers; that is oue of the motive powers.
and disreputable, dishonest tinkering with the cur
rency question, which is the second and no less pro
minent reason. To protect the iron interests of
Pennsylvania and Missouri, the operatives in edge
tools and hardware articles have in thousands of
eases been compelled to cease, because the duties on
English iron and steel were so exorbitant as to abso
lutely prohibit their use, and foreign made goods
could be bought at cheaper rates. The same is true
with regard to wool, the duties on which range from
20 to 100 per cent., including fourteen varieties or
classifications of wool attended with beavy penalties
for any violation or departure from such classifica
tion, tbe determination oi wbicn is a delicate and
hazardous matter. Had we the space to spare we
could specify a large number of other articles for
which tbe American people have been compelled to
pay heavily in order that some wealthy corporations
should receive the benefits of protection ! Congress
exhibited neither inclination nor ability to cope with
tbe question, and finally all the opposition platforms
rang with tbe cry a tariff for revenue only," and
it became a leading feature in the late elections, es
pecially in those sections where thousands upon
thousauds of unemployed operatives felt its full sig
nificance. .Now let us refer to tbe currency mnu
ence. The Republican party came into power
pledged to the earliest possible resumption of specie
p-iymeuts. How did it redeem those pledges? Its
prominent leaders, such aa Uutler, Iogan, Morton,
Kelley. Stevens, and a host of others were the warm
est advocates for inflation, for multiplying Govern
ment paper promises to pay, for measures that could
only result in finaucial ruin, and the utter wreck of
American credit at home and abroad, and but for
the stern, unyielding interposition of the President,
tint uiischief would have been consummated. Again,
a Republican Secretary of the Treasury, in defiance
of law, and with entire disregard of right and just
ice, deliberately authorized the emission of 20,000,
000 from the reserves, and subsequently managed to
have his action indorsed by a Hepubucan Congress,
but not without having attached to it the covert
stigma of a proviso positively inhibiting the issue of
any more greenbacks or rag-money subject to re
demption by tbe Oovernment. We might cite many
others points of like character, but the failure of
Congress to take measures for resumption, and its
well known impotence to deal intelligently with finan
cial questions, will suffice to show the other great
cause for the changes that have occurred.
Missionaries in China. M. D. Conway attended
the iiieet'mgs of the Congress of Orientals in London,
and there met a lady who had just returned from
China, where both her husband and herself bad bcea
missionary laborers. The lady feared that, were she
to tell all she knew about Chinese missionary life,
the contributions from Suuday Schools and other
sources would be greatly diminished. Tbe fact was
that the great mass of tbe Chinese were in less need
of missionary labor than the same classes in England.
In addition to this, the general impression that mis
sionaries were subject to hardships was entirely
erroneous. Her own life in China had teen almost
luxurious. For society she had had English an l
American merchants and their families, learned Chi
nese scholars and travelers from all parts of tbe
world. The stories of hardship and privation nar
rated before missionary meetings, and instilled into
the children at Sunday School, might have been true
once, but that tirn was long ago. The Jellybys will
please make a note of it. Christian Journal.
