OUR PAEJS LETTEE.
Taris, March 3.
Parliamcctary government as understood here,
eecms to be, that the jninoritj shall govern the
majoritj. Thid has been illustrated in the march
ing up the hill and marching down aain nego
tiations for the formation of a cabinet. Now
that the Republic is a rcalitj on the statute-book,
the monarchists seem to claim the right to admin
ister it. The Republicans concede much to their
rivals; they r.re playing the waiting game, and
will tafce their revenge at the general elections
a consummation now more than ever devoutly to
be wished, and in which the new government
should hold impartially aloof. Martial law ought
to be at once abolished, and the Communes re
stored the right to appoint their Mayors secured
their independence. France Buffers from over
administration, and eelf-government is only in its
infancy. The attempt may be given up by the
Orlcanists to make France royalist; that legend
is aa dead as the others; aa Bonapartism, as Le
gitimacy, as ideal Republicanism represented by
Louis Blanc, as the mountain tribe of 1848, that
commenced to overthrow the Republic as soon aa
it waa established and to declare war against its
friends the moment they inherited office. The
men of the period for New France, must be saga
cious, liberal, practical, and conciliating. It has
been remarked, that Reason, Truth, and Wisdom,
were the divinities whose feet the nation kissed,
only when they were taking their departure;
these gods are now to be embraced lrom their
arrival. The proclamation of the Republic ia the
first instance in French history of a government
being inaugurated without Bound of the cornet,
flute, harp, aackbut, pahery. and dulcimer, and
all kind cl music. Not a Te Deum. not a rc-
, view; no illuminations, no free theatres, no mats
de cocannt. There was no defile of soldiers on
the Boulevards, no Saga from windows, no groups
S a-. a
oi young giria aressca in wrute, no altar erected
on the thamp-de-Mara. crily France is decen
crating into common sense, order, patience, and
respect for the law. She is so content as to have
rettumed work with confidence.

The collection recalls the lumber room of a theatre,
or the public auction mart where the wardrobe
gloriea of an actress or a demi-mondian are ex
posed for view before being knocked down to the
old do fraternity. There are 41 photos of the
ex-impcrial family in various postures. Nothing
can be more gloomy, more full of ennui, than
these groups, apparently preparing for a whist
party o: tLrce ; not a aaen or heroism in the fig
ures; all have mostly books in their hands
What a studious family ! The photo of the Em
peror in an arm-chair, daudling under difficulties,
the Prince Imperial aged about 13, ia about as
attractive as an orphan of 40 years standing, or
an epitaph recording that the defunct, aged GO, ia
now an f.ngel. There is a bouquet of violets, and
from between the petals of each flower, starts up

ical meu.ber of the Bona part is t family. Nothing
can be more droll, yet it is intended for an artis
tic success, ihe portrait of Napoleon III. is sur
rounded with a scroll work of txts of Scripture ;
beneath ia a reflection; "const ring to think, that
in the midst of dangers, Providence reserves to
one being, to be the instrument of safety for all."
TLia allusion to the coup d' Eat could not bo
more delicate. .Imperialists trade even in the
finger of God theory. The Prince Imperial is in
endlees attitudes, waving a tricolor flag, and ut
tering some of the shibboleths of Caesarian demo
cracy. These photos of the Prince Imperial are
anything but prepossessing; able as are Ins par
tisans, they could not force the run to lie. There
ia no portrait of the. ex-Emperor on boresback
leading his troops in a charge a;;ainst rnyriada of
Prussians; inai wouiu do io a own nis memory
with supreme ridicule; but he i 3 on horseback in
eome battle field covered with dead and wounded,
looking aa insensible aa hia uncle in the famous
picture 6f galloping on Bucephalus over the Alps.
There ia nothing to explain if the battle field be
that of Sedan or Solferino. You pays your money
and you takes your choice. There are gushing
visiting cards from young milliners, eome with
bog Latin mottoes suggesting fidelity to the eagles.
"Ridicule," which ia said to kill in France, "is a
cold weapon that destroys mere effectively than
fire-arms." Laughter, and t;ot haste, will be
produced by these clandestine photos of Imperi
alism. For the moment there is nothing more fashion
able in Paris than influenza; no person has es
caped; each has had to pay hib tribute. But life
has not the less kept on the ever, tenor of its way ;
in a dancing party there, are duets of coughing
between partners, which if not harmonious, are
at least novel. Men afflicted with the endemic,
take np a position beside a corner of the fire, and
in old coat or gown and slippers impatiently
await the happy change of weather, and that Du
ruof in his balloon ascents without his wife at
Pau, signal from an attitude of 6,000 feet to be
coming. The fair sex take lovingly to the mal
ady provided it be neither too long nor too severe,
they keep not their bed-room, but their boudoir,
and bestow all their attention to make a toilette
for the occasion, and unt figure de circonstance.
The rube ia in maldasse, form prineesee, trimmed
with satin and old lace, with a cascade of bows;
the head ia enveloped in a cloud of material re
sembling woolen foam; the feet are encased in
slippers in harmony with the robe; then with an
air a little suffering, and a display of amiability
that sickens increases, the dear invalid managea
to overcome the ills of the season, and to receive
the visits of sympathizing friends.
Mid-Lent came like a relief, a joyous halt on
the road to Easter; the twenty-four hours carni
val passed off merrily ; the masks re-appeared and
Folly held sway. Not indeed that Lent is very
austere in Paris. Tlie sovereign people of to-day,
present no penitents like those of the Middle Ages,
who prostrated themselves in the dust and had for
change of linen only a hair shirt. In Ireland it
is 6aid. there is a place for expiation called Pur
gatory, where one pays to enter and to do penance ;
there is no such " Home Rule" in Paris; citizens

The capital ia what Mercicr wittily called, the
dancing garden of Europe." Par id consumes
more pleasures than any city in the world; the

Roueplan said, Paris would rise in insurrection

11 infractions of the laws of abstinence may be
set down as involuntary. Tallyrand was very
particular on the subject of fasting; and on2 day
it was discovered the pate of "tunny he had
been eatinz. contained the leg of a "rabbit; his
admirers ran at once to the Archbiehop to demand
absolution for this involuntary sin. By means of
salmon, and sauces that would make Brillat
Savarin rub hia hands, one is enabled to pasa the
most trying days. Other tiny kickshaws are not
Mid-Lent is also the fete of the laundresses,
and when the guild select their queen, the cere
monv cenerally takes place with closed laundry
doors, where healths arc toasted, preparatory to
the annual hall in the evening. The royal pro
cession along the Boulerarda is now a thing of the
iast. like the Bavf Gras; besides, such would
not be in keeping with republican institutions; it
is further well-known, that the 13,000 washer
women, and Kasber-mm in Paris, are as divided
on the election of a queen the Salic law ia not
recognized as the Monarchists in the Assembly
are respecting a King, and the parties resolutely
decline to fuse. The annual laundry bill of Puns
is estimated at 60 millions of francs? of which ten
represent the starching and getting up. The
washer-women earn 2 francs per day, and are
exposed to all weather in the public washing es
tablishments, of which there are 100 in the city,
and 130 on the river.
There are 114,000 cats in Paris, the statistics
having been lnado with the view of taxing them
like dogs. The police budget is about 20 millions
of francs, the state contributing one-third of this
sum. There is no special body of police consti
tuting a detective force, the most intelligent mem
bers take part in turn in this duty; the force
numbers about 8,000 men, not including the re
publican guard, or mounted police the average
annual ta.!ary, including out-fit and lodging
money, is 1,700 francs, less gratuities for captur
ing noted criming. Every week a liet of the ar
ticles foocd by the police is published ;" these
gem-rally Cutuj ru-e umbrellas and canes, purses
an l jcwclery ; coats and muffs ; there is alav a
notable number of railway shares and coupons.
It is a punishable offence for a person to retain
anything found; such is at once to be handed over
to the police. ,
The first roses ofahe teuton Lave armed in
Paris; they are pole, have not a grand vitality
the life of the rose only, and which is said to be
but the space of a morning and they ct two
francs each. An evening party where bouquets
of roses are obligatory, thus amount to a pretty
earn, bat far behind Nero's banquet at Baice,
where he expended ten millivns of setterces on
roses. As Lent advances', there seems to be a
greater rush to hear the celebrated preachers. At
the Madeleine on Sunday lar-t, the Pere Matignon
selected for subject the sin of working on the
Seventh day, when a workman replied, " it is ne
cessary, aa the children are huDgry every day;'
he waa at once removed; the sermon was very
excellent, but too full of metaphors and over
larded with Latin quotations; themubic was first
class, but the faithful must have soiae difficulty
in fixing their attention, owing to the moving uf
chairs, the perpetual walking about of worship
pers and collectors ; among the latter is the woman
who collects the two sous for the hired chair; she
performs what is called, "a copper symphony;"
then the charming qucteuses, always in the very
Litest fashion, shake their velvet collecting bags,
till being too heavy, the contents are emptied in
to a common purse carried by Judas Iscariot as
the beadle ia called. It is said, that it is not
lucky for a gentleman to waylay his love in church,
hence, why so many members of the Jeunesse
doree are certain to attend, aa they belong to the
perverse and stiff-necked generation. There is an
advantage too in seeing ladies leaving the Made
leine when the grand doors are thrown open, and
anything but a dim religious light falls, there is
a good deal of pushing it ia remarked that it is'
only in a religious crowd that the French push or
disperse disorderly and many toilettes are de
ranged and tempers ruffled ; those ladies who in
dulge in rouge and powder, appear to have feat
ures covered with scales, and cracked like an old
Japan plate; others present a cadaverous aspect.
Ladies are quite right in selecting when they can
never to face a full light.
Some cab-men have tried with success a new
idea : they are proverbially known to be as good
politicians aa the shoe-makers; and it is only ac
cessary to glance at them seated on their vehicle
to conclude they ure "constant readers" of the
newspapers. Ihe idea consists in cabby invest
ing in two or three different journals, and lending
one to whoever hires him, at the rate of one sous
per perusal. lie may unwnsciously produce
sudden deaths, if he commits the error of hand
ing a republican journal to a Right Divine Mon
archist or rice rersa. The edict of the Prcfet of
Police against public billiard playing is coneid
, ered to be too sweeping; two ball pool is all that
he believes, depends on the ability of the players ;
more ia but a game of chance, in fact gambling.
It would be better for the police to suppress no
torious billiard gaming tables, where in addition,
a political club ia disguised.
The celebrated chestnut tree in the Tuilerics
Gardens, venerated by the Imperialists as a
thing of beauty and a joy for ever, because it
came specially into leaf before its companions, on
the 21 March, as the homage of spring vegetation
to the Napoleon dynasty, bids fair this year to
arrive some days earlier in bloom. Ia this a tri
umph for the Republic, or an honor, as some in
sinuate, for the Prince Imperial having creditably
passed his examination? However, as the rain
falls on the just and unjust alike, there arc chest
nuts at Belleville more advanced still. Another
verdant ia the Comte de Waldeck, who haa just
celebrated the anniversary of his 109th year; he
married his second wife at 80, and haa a sun by
that union, 23 years old. The Comte ought to
hold his Bccond scries of silver wedding ; he is an
artist of some notoriety, and his studio is a very
pleasant lounge, the old geutleuian being very
chatty and full of anecdotes. He has in his life
time witnessed France endowed with fifteen differ
ent constitutions, and if, as philosopher Flourena
maintained, man is but oil the threshold of youth
when a century old, he may live to see fifteen
A new journal has appeared called the Orphan;
a prospectus of the VViaoiv may be counted upon.
The inhabitants of Siintca complained of the
bad bread supplied by the bakers; the authorities
seized samples of flour, analysed them, and found
they were adulterated to the extent of 40 per
cent with bean meal and other substances. The
bakers said they baked the flour as it was supplied
to them; the jolly miller was then arrested, tried,
and sentenced to a fine of 3,001) francs. Ho. ap
pealed against this severity, and the court has not
only confirmed the fine, but ordered hia imprison
ment in addition for three months. Visitors of
French race courses may recall a. very bold look
ing female, generally dressed a la catiniere, and
like Joseph's coat of many colors; she is known
as "Isabelle the Flower Girl," out of compli
ment to her forty summers; she has the exclusive
right of Eelling bouquets to the occupants of the
grand stand, and is privileged to indulge in im
pertinent replies, which are accepted as witticisms;
she has 10,000 francs a year for supplying flowers
to the Jockey Club, and 6,000 francs for doing
the same for Baron Rothschild ; she has two
country houses, a little palace in Paris, possesses
diamonds and jeweler j; and railway scrip; 6he
only allowed her poor mother two francs a week
to keep body and soul together; the Tribunal has
ordered her to pay a pension of 6,000 a year to
her abandoned mother. "O wise and upright
That popular actress Aimec Dcsclee, has at

whose plays 6he interpreted with something more

girlish struggles; her sorrowful life, her early
death, and her long and agonizing malady, have
surrounded her name with much sympathy; these

The Spirits Defended.
Grace Greenwood writes as follows to a New
York paper : Now, I have no special interest in
the matters in dispute, but I like to see justice
done and Christian charity extended even to
ministers and mediums, and so' am moved to
state that during a sitting at Dr. Slade's last
spring I bad this very test several times repeated.
In fact, there was no writing for me " nnder the
table." All was done on the table, in broad
daylight, under my eye and under my band. At
one time I placed in the double slate two closely
folded notes sent to me to be used as tests, of the
contents of which I knew nothing, nor did I
know the names of the persons or intelligences to
whom they wereaddrcssed. The two notes were im
mediately and correctly answered on the slate with
the right signatures as I ascertained on unfolding
and reading them. The medium, by the way, had
not even touched these notes ; his hand during
the mysterious writing had rested lightly on the
slate, which I grasped tightly while listening in
tently to the scratching of the tiny bit of pencil
within. As for the other famous mediums,
Messrs. Foster and Mansfield, 1 will not say that
they never cheat in their business, after the man
ner of business men, but 1 will say that they
have not cheated me ; perhaps, because though
wary and watchful, I did not set out to cheat
them. Test questions, carefully prepared before
hand and not written on thin paper, and not un
folded, have been satisfactorily answered by or
through them ; and such facts are of more ac
count to me than startling phenomena of raps,
furniture moviDg and the grasp of invisiblo
hands. I do not pretend to be an investigator of
Spiritualism. I have given to the matter very
little time. Almost all the opportunities I. have
had for witnessing its strange manifestations have
been accidental; but I know what I have seen
and heard and felt. I have here given a little of
my own experience, and, as grand old Horace
Greeley once said, I propose to stand by it,"

The Sandwich Islands Question.
Although Mr. David"
Wells has appeared
against the nr.posed reciprocity treaty with tne
Sandwich Inlands, by letter, and denounced it as
a swindle, ne trust that the subject will uot be
diuiifcd either by the public or the Senate with
out a l eariu.: and a di.cu.-ion. Ik objects that
the treaty ill result in the I s of revenue which
w-nild otherwise be imputed on the Hawaiian
'ugur, and that the six or seven hundred thou
sand dollars, thus sacrificed, will simply be trans
ferred te the pockets of a tknn wealthy planters.
' " The benefit of the free-trade will doubtless be
divided between the inlands and the sugar refiners
and consumers of tta Pacific coa.-t. The Hawai
ian plantations produce at the present about 15,
C00.000 pounds of sugar a year, and the admis
sion of this amount free of duty will probably
fpoil the Pacific const market for our eastern re
finers. On the other hand, the principle or free
trade and its extension first to our near neighbors
are of importance, and can be followed in this
case with no injury to. any interest which is not
abundantly able to stand it. Second, there is a
political and a future clement entering into the
case which ought not to be disregarded. King
Kalakaua has a larger area under him than the
king of Sarjny and nearly as large as Governor
Gaston. As to how far its agriculture can be
extended is a problem, but the islands are likely
in the future to be the home of an active com
mercial population of our own race, and it ia a
matter of importance that their trade relations
with us should be intimate. The destiny of the
islands with a very little guidance on our part is
American and republican. On the other hand,
we want to exercise over them a moral protect
orate and a commercial supremacy, rather than
assume to anuex or to dominate their politics.
They govern themselves passably well, and better
probably than we could govern them. Reci
procity gives us, at small cost, this moral and
commercial supremacy and shuts the door against
annexation schemes or foreign protectorates. It
is worth all it costs, if it only does so much ; it ia
worth a thourand times more, if it shall point the
way to similar arrangements ultimately with our
Canadian, Cuban, Mexican and other neighbors.
We hope, therefore, that the treaty will be ratified.
Butter and Whitewash.
They have a new hired girl over at Keysers
farm just outside our town, and on Tuesday, be
fore starting to spend the daywith a friend, Mrs.
Keyter instructed the girl to whitewash the
kitchen .during her absence. Upon returning,
Mrs. Keyser found the job completed in a very
satisfactory manner. On Wednesdays Mrs. Key
ser always churns, and last Wednesday, when
she was ready, 6he went out, and finding' that
Mr., Keyser had already put the milk into the
churn, she began to turn the handle. This was at
eight o'clock in.the morning, and she turned until
ten without any signs of butter appearing. Then
she called in the hired man, and he turned until
dinner time, when he knocked off with some very
offensive languago addressed to that butter which
had not yet come. After dinner the hired girl
took hold of the crank and turned it energetical
ly until two o'clock, when she let go with a re
mark which conveyed the impression that she
believed the churn to be haunted. Then Mr.
Keyser came out and said he wanted to know
what was the matter with that churn, anyhow.
It was a good enough churn if people only knew
enough to work it. Mr. Keyser then worked the
crane until half-past three, when, as- the butter
had uot come, he surrendered it again to the
hired man because he bad an engagement in the
vilagc. The man ground the machine to an ac
companiment of frightful imprecations; then the
Kcrser children each took a turn for half an
hour, then Mrs. Keyser tried her band, and when
she was exhausted she again enlisted the hired
girl who said her prayers while she turned. But
the butter did'nt come. "When Keyser -came
home and found the churn Etill in action he
blasted his eves and did some other innocent
swearing, and then he seized the handle and said
he'd make the butter come if he kicked up an
ccrthquake in doing it. Mr. Keyser effected
about two hundred evolutions of the crank a
minute, enough to have made any ordinary butter
come Iroiu the ends of the earth ! and when the
j perspiration began to stream from him and still
j the butter didn't come, he uttered one wild yell
i of rage and disappointment and kicked the churn
; over the fence. When Mrs. Keyser went to pick
; it up she put her nose down close to the butter-
, milk and took a sniff. Then she understood how
; it was. The girl had mixed the whitewash in
the churn and left it there. A good, honest and
intelligent servant who knows how to churn can
find a situation at Keyser's. There is a vacancy,

Tuesday evening a young man called on a gen
tleman acquaintance whom he expected to find
alone, but was ushered into the presence of five
or six ladies. Under ordinary circumstances
this unexpected array of beauty would' not have
awed or perplexed him, but just at the time he
chanced to be laboring under a huge chew of
tobacco. As the juice of the vile plant filled his
mouth, he glanced around in search Of a spit
toon, rso sucu article was visiole. lie grew
warm, and to questions addressed to bim, be
could 6h!y answer with a nod or a shake of his
head. Just as the tobacco began to steal out of
the corners of his overburdened mouth he be
thought of his handkerchief. Hastily drawing
it from his pocket, he raised the other hand and
pointed towards the window. While the ladies
were Iookins in that direction, trying to ascer
tain what had attracted his attention, he quickly
squirted the load. of tobacco into his handker
chief, folded it up and placed it in hia pocket.
Thus relieved from the cause of bis embarrass
ment, and feeling that his strange conduct had
excited the surprise of the party, he exerted all
his powers of mind and manner to remove what
ever unfavorable impression had been created.
He chatted and laughed, told stories, perpetrated
puns, and was so agreeable that the ladies wished
be could be with them always. His previous
singular demeanor waa forgotten, and as jibe and
jest leaped from hia lips each fair listener inward
ly wished that " heaven had made tier such a
man." He told a joke on himself, and it was a
pood one. They all Iauzhed loud and lonz, and
he as loud and long aa any of them. He laughed
until the tears came in hia eyes, and he pulled
forth his handkerchief and wiped them away.
That tobacco-laden handkerchief!
In a moment of forgetiulness he wiped away
the tears of joy with that reeking handkerchief!
" He has broken a blood-vessel !" the startled
women cried, as, swift-winged with fear, they
flew for assistance. When they returned, their
entertainer was gone.. He is etill gone, and anx
ious friends are dragging the river for hia body,
as he was last seen nying in that direction.
The Mormon Murderer.
The trial of John D. Lee, the alleged author of
the Mountain Meadows massacre, w;ll take place
at Beaver, Utah, during the coming month. The
Mormons will try to obtain an ascendancy in the
jury and thus defeat the ends of justice. The
San t ranasco Call says " ttie lecture or nre. sten
house, now being delivered in different parts of
the territory, dwelling with thrilling interest, it
is said, upon many of the incidents of the massa
cre, clearly implicates some of the head men of
the Mormon church in the ' bloody transaction.
The effect of these lectures is to strengthen the
determination of the Gentiles' to bring the mur
derers to justice, while they, at the same time,
intensify Mormon hatred toward her, and cause a
sharpening of Mormon wii to avert the danger
which threatens the prisoner. Any testimony
that will establish his guilt must necessarily im
plicate his associates, who were a numerous band ;
and so many of these as still survive are nervous
in apprehension of the revelations that are ex
pected to be madeT' The prisoner is said to be
losing his mind and is making unguarded state
ments in his ravings that will do himself and his
coadjutors much damage. The Salt Lake Tribune
says that he tella of fellow-conspirators and assas
sins, being hidden in a cave in southern -Utah,
armed against the approach of others, and defy
ing arrest, who were the principal actors in the
tragedy. He also declares that he is to be made
the scapegoat of the church, and put forwaird to
receive the punishment which should be shared by
each and every one. of bis? confederates. The
strong point upon which'the Mormons reply for
Lee's acquittal will be to prove on alibi. Excite
ment over the subject of the trial is at.fever heat,
and daily increasing. An honest jury is the one
thing most desirable, and which, it is anticipated,'
wiiloe most difficult to procure.
