OUR PARIS LETTER.
Paris, April 0, 1875.
Tbe official w jId ia becoming accustomed to
the word Republic, and Ministers arc ComrEenc
ing SO talk politics in intelligible Frencn. since
some two jcara the nation ha been seeking it
way, and ha at last found it hence why the
country ia so calm. To tbe clear, manly, out
spoken circular of the Minister of Justice, suc
ceed the Tirile discourse of the Minister ol Pub
lic Instruction, before the assembled savants, ar
rired from tbe fuur corners of France, at the
Sorbonne. The representatives of ecieuce and
natienal erudition, cheered to tbe echo the Minis
ter when he truthfully announced, " the Republic
is peace," security, and rcrival of work. The
Republic is settling down on a svlid basis; it is
hardly a week, when over the grave vf KJgar
Quinet, the orderly, and respectable working
population of Paris, cheered lambert-i'? u; - -of
firudence and moderation ; and now the dale
pal savant of provincial France fiat the mean;
for attaining the same end. No wonder the rep
resentatives of the three Pretenders are indulging
in Jewish grief. The General Ciunciis now be
ing held, open with presidential addresses, con
firmatory of the salutary change effected in the
country by the definite recognition ol the Repub
lic, welcoming it not so mucn as tbe most desira
ble of solutions, but as the only solution possible.
Other sign; several monarchal journal, finding
Othello's occupation gone, are selling out, and
are being quickly bought up by conservative Re
publicans. There is not a letter from tbe C'omto
de Cbanibord, not a photograph or a tract from
Cbiselhurat, to break the monotonous success of
the Republic. And what will be the degree of
felicity, when Martial law shall be abolished, and
the Royalist and simulated friends, relieved from
mounting guard over tac Republic which was
founded in spite of them. It is enough to drive
M. Buffet to give office to a republican, and to
enjoy bis forty winks in company with t uiubctta.
Since France is disinclined to try the advantages
of an income tax, and that it is impossible to
make the two ends of the budget meet by adding
to tbe already high Ltxcs, opinion is coming round
to the idea of negotiating a new loan to wipe out
tbe floating deficits and the momentary high esti
mates for reorganizing the public services. It is
not a bad plan to allow posterity to contribute a
little to repair the ruin caused by the invasion,
especially when contemporaries cannot meet the
bill in full. France is rich enough to ray for her
glory and also for her misfortunes. The foreign
relatione of France continue to be sound, and
will increase in utility as nations sec she is in

The sensible idea ie being agitated for founding
an International Chamber of Commerce, and
meets with general approval. Its guiding princi

can be attained will be its aim in all commercial

allowed to meddle in the society, an exclusion
which promises a long lifo for the work. Names
of weight are already associated with the idea,
which will further purpose to centralize interna
tional information, and to bring about interna
tional legislative ameliorations.
Except the steeple and flat races, which like
KiDgs, observe a royal punctuality, everything

still tbe order of the day, and have every promise
an retain mat position lor some time longer.
The first of April was the time-honored period
for tbe bourgeoisie to tako possession of t1 eir
enimtry seats; at present tuc idea of reRC' .i is
farthest from their thoughts. Ono journal created
quite a sensation by announcing to the fitk, that
the swallows had returned, and one at least could
be seen at any moment of the day on the roof of
the office; convalescents crawled to see the har
binger of spring, and wero rewarded by the spec
tacle of a swallow weather cock. Even tiie
horse-show in the Palace of Industry does not
draw except wilful murder draughts. Perhaps
when the Fino Arts Exhibition succeeds, zephyrs
may have commenced to blow. In the time of
Lofontaine, every Marquis had his pages; to-day
tbe sign of importance is to bavo horses, and the
walla of your apartment covered with pictures,
and every room a depot for ohels a" art. It would
be a serious omission to overlook the rage for dogs ;
the poorest woman in Paris if not owner of a
poodle can boast of a cur. Formerly but ono
vendor of white fleecy puppies, was to be encount
ered on the Boulevards, at present the fraternity
if. aa numerous as the old clo' men, and about as
righteous. Actresses generally prefer bull ter
riers ; nothing more fashionable than the ugliest
of pugs beside the prettiest of belles. "Na
ture," as Shakspcarc says, "hath meal and bran,
contempt and grace." No doubt the dreadfully
long winter may explain, why so many young
ladies arc said to be suffering from excessive ap
plication to tbe piano; the daughter of a well
known ambassador has been ordered to a thermal
establishment to cure her of her musical malady.
The bippopbagic banquet was a success in point
f culinary art; Parisians require no such dis
play to initiate them into the mysteries of horse
flesh ; the seigc gave them an acquired taste, and
twenty horse Autrhcnes enable citizens to indulge
in that meaf, ottber from necessity, luxurv. or in
memory of hard times. At the dinner in ques
tion, the apostles of this philanthropic butchery,
were served with tbe flesh of ass, horse, and mule ;
in the form of potted meat and sausages, the ar
ticle becomes too dear for slender purses, and
mule must be regarded as a luxury. In the form
of ateak, horse is difficult to masticate, but cooked
in the furnace, or boiled, it is the equal of beef.
Until lately, a horse accidentally killed was only
worth 20 francs at the Knacker's yard ; to-day,
that price has risen six fold. A. M. Dccroix has
revelled on horse flesh since twenty years, and
even eats it when derived from a diseased animal ;
to prove his taste for it he has eaten some of it
raw, and would regard the prcsen of a sirloin of
beef or a leg of mutton, as somctuing like an in
sult. With the good intcntioned connivance of
some sisters of charity he b as unknowingly dis
tributed among the poor, succulent morsels of the
flesh of horses and asees. At the close of the
banquet, each guest was presented with the pho
tographs of the horse, the mule, and the ass. that
were slaughtered to make 130 guests happy.
Gentlemen, you are welcomed to EUinore,'
raid Uauilet to the players. Parisians may ad
dress the same compliment to the company of
Russian actor now within our walls, and who
have como all the way from Moscow to repicsent,
not a drama but a comedy, aod in language that
none understands a word, although nearly all che
dialogues have been suppressed. It is brave on
the part of artists to sacrifice their roles thus for
our pleasure. I'nable to ravish the cars, they are
content to dazzle the eyes, for the piece acted " a
Russian Marriage during tho sixteenth century,"
is simply barbarism on a ground work of gold.
Tbe boyards look proud and savage, with their
caf:.'vans embroidered with gold, their robes with
spangles of silver, their top coats ornamented
with figures of outlandish birds, their red boots
with golden fringe, and their long hair ornamented
with a gold skull cap. The women arc dressed in
long white gowns, fastening to the waist by diamond-studded
belts, giving them at once the air
of queens and priestesses; the reverences and
three kisses exchanged at every moment, has a
sacerdotal character abjut it; sous in presence of
their fathers, appear like slaves, with bowed head
and hanging arms. The marriage ceremony for
this is the whole piece opens by presenting the
negotiators with salt and bread on a golden salver ;
tbe nuptial toilette recalls something like tbe tak
ing of the veil; the bride is undressed, and re
dressed, pending procession wi:h tapers aud solemn
music; gold bracelets are placed on her arms, so
heavy as to resemble chains, and to symbolise her
servitude; then a red veil is dropped over her, as
on the head of a victim decorated for a sacrifice.

only one plate ; as for napkins, they were as scarce
as at the King of Congo's table. The repast
1 lasted nine hours, and tbe company only broke up
when the Czar, owing to excessive drinking had
a fit of bleeding at the nose. It was then the
custom for the priests to deliver written passports
to the dying, addressed to Saints Peter or Nicho
las, to admit them without any quarantine, di
rectly to heaven. The Czarina was imprisoned

with this aort of worship, or sufficiently manly to
be bored by it, is in a field of temptation to un
cl astity, is simply absurd. One ia too feminine

When theoe two classes are set aside, what
have we left? Virtuous and contented mothers
of. virtuous daughter daughters wbom be bap
tize in their infancy, trains in his Sunday schoola,
marries when they are married, and buries with
sympathetic tears when they die. In euch fami
lies as these his presence is a benediction ; and to
suppose that he is tempted here, is to suppose him
a brute, and BO deny the facts of human nature.
We verily believe there is no class in the com
munity so little tempted as the clergy, and there
certainly is no class surrounded on every aide with
such dissuasive from unchaste conduct. To a
clergyman, influence and good name are inesti
mable treasures. To stand before confiding audi
ences Sunday after Sunday, and preach that
which he kn . ws condemns himself in the eyea of
a siugle member of his flock, must be a crucifixion
from whose tortures the bravest man would shrink.
There are bad men in the pulpit, without doubt.
There is now and then a woman who would not
shrink from an intrigue with such, but wman do
not choose ministers for lovers, nor do minister,
as a class, find themselves subjected to great
temptations by them. If ministers are tempted
by the circumstance of their office, they may be
sure that they are moved by their own lust and
enticed, and that their office may very profitably
spare their service.
As a class, the Christian ministers of the coun
try are the purest men we have. We believe
they average better than tho Apostles did at first.
Jesus, in His little company of twelve, found one
that was a devil. The world has improved until,
we believe there is not more than one devil in a
hundred. In any scandal connected with the
name of a clergyman and a female member of hie
flock, the probabilities are all and always in favor
of bis innocence. The man of the world who
keeps his mistress, the sensualist who doe not
believe in the purity of any man, the great com
munity of scani! atJd scalawags, are alwaya
ready to believe anything reflecting upon a clergy
man's chastity. It only remains for clergymen
themselves to be careful to avoid tbe appearance
of evil. Nothing can be more euro ana horrible
than their punishment when guilty of prostituting
their ofiee, and nothing is so valuable to them aa
an unsullied name. To preserve tbia, no paine
taking can be too fatiguing, no self-denial too ex
pensive, no weeding out of all untoward associa
tion too exacting.

The Relations of Clergymen to Women-
Dr. J. G. IlolUnd in Srribnrr.
Recent events have givca riee to a fresh discus
sion of the relations of clergymen to women,
some of which has been wise and some widely
otherwise. It is supposed by many that tbe pastor
is a man peculiarly subjected to temptations to
unchaste " conversatiun " with the female mem
bers of his flock
never saw each other till they met at the marriage
It is undoubtedly and deliirht
lully true that a popular preacher is the object of
genuine affection and admiration to the women
who sit under his ministry. A true woman re
spects brains and a commanding masculine na
ture; but if there is any one thing which she
naturally chooses to hide ham her pastor it is her
own temptations (if sho has any) to illicit gratifi
cations. She naturally desires to appear well to
him upon bis own ground of Christian purity.
To cij ose herself to his contempt or condemna
ti ii would be forbidden by all her pretensions,
professions and natural instincts. A had woman
might undertake to atone for, and to cover up,
her uutside peccadilloes by the most friendly and
considerate treatment ol her pastor; but 6be
would not naturally take him for her victim. It
is precisely with this man that she wishes to ap
pear at her best. Any man with the slightest
Knowieuge ot Human nature can see that her selfish
ns well as her Christian interests are against any
exhibitions of immodest and unchaste desires in
the presence of her spiritual teacher.
1 here are only two classes of women with which
minister is liable to have what, in the language
of the world, would be called '-dangerous inti
macies." The first consists of discontented wives
discontented through any cause connected with
their husbands or themselves. A woman finds
herself married to a brute. She suffers long in
silence ; her heart is broken or weary, and she
wants counsel, and is dying for sympathy. She
tells her story to the one man who is to her
guide, teacher, inspirer and friend. He gives her
the best counsel of which he is capable, comforta
her if he can, sympathizes with her, treats her
with kindness and consideration. That a woman
should, in many instances, look upon such a man
as little less than a god, and come to regard him
us almost her only solace amid the daily accumu
lating trials of her life, is as natural as it is for
water to run down hill. That she should respect
him more than she can a brutal husband that
half an hour of his society should be worth more
to her heart and her self-respect than the misera
ble years of her bondage to a cruel master isal
m .tt entirely natural. lie cannot help it, nor
can he find temptation in it unless he chooses to
do so. Women, under these circumstances, do
not go to tneir i'astore cither to tempt or to be
There is auothcr class of women who are thrown,
or who thr -w themselves, into what may be called
an intimate association with the clergy. It is a
class that have nothing else to do so pleasant as to
be petting some nice man, to whoso presence and
society circumstances give them admission. They
are very haruilees set gushing maiden ladies,
aged and discreet widows with nice houses, senti
mental married women, who. with no braina to
lend, arc fond of borrowing them for the orna
mentation of all social occasions. A popular
mini.ter receives a great deal of worship from this

The teacher shook his head. M Well 1 declare,
I thot I had it," said the speller, with keen disap
pointment ; but he picked up when the second
man started, and eyed him with considerable anx
iety. The next man with a desperate earnestness ;
said, " I-n, in, d-e, de, u-n, un, Indeun."
Then he sighed, and gazed anxiously at the
teacher, while an old party at the end of tbe
bench, who was watching the efforts with deri
sive amusement, turned the quid in his mouth,
and said ;
" You ain't in a rod on't ; but go on, let sum
The teacher told the second speller that he also
had failed, whereupon he sighed again.
Then the third man took hold. He squared
himself upon the scat, and holding up one finger,
ticked off tho letters with becoming solemnity, aa
follows : " I-n, in, d-d-d-a, da, inda i-n, in
The old party on the end of the bench, who had
been teetering on the precipice of a laugh while
this cffoit waa beiug put forth, snickered right
out in a loud guffaw at ita conclusion.
" Well, that's a spell for you, I mus' say."
And then he laughed again. Tho speller said
nothing ; but he grew very red in the face when
JiiB tailure was announced, and cast a baleful
glance at the old party, whose turn had now come.

" You people should keep away from here, you

and he smiled all over his face, while his eves
iwinKiea witn tne merriment, and looking side
ways from one to the other, he rapidlv spelled
" 1-n, in, g-i-n, gin, Ingin."
