: Paris, December 2S.
The French have got it into their heads,
that by the accession" of Earl Derby to the
cabinet, the Egyptian question will be satis
factorily settled, and in their sense. His
lordship has restored Cettawayo, in a man
ner to make John Dunn lead off in a Hot
tentot reel ; why then not expect he will
secure by his influence, all that France
requires in Egypt the restoration of the
dual control, for that's what her acquired
rights mean, but which she forfeited by
shirking to defend them Shreadheads
remark, that while England indulges in dis
interested phrases and generalities, jhe is
net the less steadily settling down in Egypt.
Baati passideus. In the interests of Egypt
even, England ought at once to clearly ex
plain what she intends doing independent
of France, for the latter will only be content
with the. impossible an exequo status in
the political government of Egypt. Natur
ally, all the French correspondents on the
Nile, ridicule the present administration of
Egypt; be their remarks just or unjust,
England ought now to fall back en all the
European powers, and so, regaining her
liberty, proceed with the reforms demanded
in Egypt. There i3 a point at coaxing or
stroking down the French, that ought to be
exceeded, as the intention would be mis
understood. The publication of the JJemoirs of Comte
Honece de Veil-Castel, and which throw
such a lurid light in the history of the
Second Empire from 1851 to 1864, occupies
for the moment all attention. The Comte
had his entrees at the Tuileries, and to all
the upper stratum of Bonapartist society, as
one of Our Own " yet he noted down
every day, everything connected with the
inner life of the then rulers of France. As
director of the Louvre museums, he had
every opportunity of playing the role of
Asmodens. The Comte wbs separated from
his wife, but consoled himself for the loss,
by taking for mistress a creole lady from
Reunim. On his death he bequeated to her
all he possessed misery, plus 20 volumes
of Memoir's. Since the fall of the Empire,
this mistress in order to live, offered the
manuscript for sale to several publishers,
who declined, till Haller, of Berne, pur
chased them. About 1.000 copies were
uggled insmto France, but a seizure was
demanded in the Count's family; the autho
rities were thus able to secure 25 copies.
A reviewer states, he secured his copy, by
placing it in the pillow of his baby's cot,
when the police came to seize. The volume
is exceedingly spicy, with the naked truth
revealed abut everybody who was any
body; all the public men are shown up
in dressing gown. Prince Jerome Na
poleon and his papi are terribly treated;
the Due de Mormeys "smart" speculations
are catalogued with n minuteness that ought
to make Sir Robert Peel happy for the re
mainder of his life. One curious chapter
introduces us to the emperor and empress
consulting the turning tables as to the re
sult of the expedition to Mexico Barrche
is depicted sobbing for "more" income to
keep up the position of his family, when the
emperor drops 30,000 francs into his hat.
There are some racy notes on foreign
celebrities, such as the ex-Queen of Spain,
Dumas, fils and other litterateur come in
for a few plaguy knocks. The account of
the Coup d'Etal is frightful in its matter of
fact cold-blooded news : 2000 citizens were
massacred for defending the law ; some of
Canrobert's soldiers haying hesitated, they
returned to storm the barricades when as
sured they would receive a gratuity of 16 f.
each. The work, apart from its unpalat
able revelations and the broadness of many
of the details, is well written, for the author
was an educated mm. He was the chief
among the Tuilerie folts taking notes that
his poverty-stricken mistress prints. It is
rare prohibited fruit.
The 'speerits" have turned up; we
thought, at least in France, they were as
extinct as the dodo. However, the faithful
among the faithless have had a gathering,
and Paris has boen selected as the centre
for the cosmopolitan debris to rally. The
Authorities do not object to this, but simply
t individuals obtaining money for photo
graphing extinct relatives and nipping up
departed worth. The audience consisted
chiefly of well-to-do middle class people,
officers laid up in ordinary, and indeed some
pretty girls that would make a sceptic drink
to Allan Kardec's health. But Michelet
states, no movement can succeed without
the fair sex. One of the spectators w.is
very happy: he was able to converse every
night with his deceased daughter, who as
sured him lately he was formerly a King of
Spain the Cid or Philip not stated ; another
enthusiast avowed he had Troppman's spirit
in him, that which ought to necessitate the
application of the guillotine for a second
time to that terrible murderer.
A monarchal writer, who is satisfied the
Republic will soon be as bad ns the cities of
the Plains, devoted Christmas Day to study
the coming solution of our political situa
tion : he found it in Daniel, where the Pro
phet alludes to certain peoples having been
weighed in the balance and found wanting,
adds he, who will occupy the throne will be
aged 62 or 6 1 years. Now, c&ncludes the
writer, the Comte de Chambord is 62. and
the Due d'Aumale will be that age next
year; hence the connection between Ten
terdon Steeple and the Goodw n Sands.
In Cardinal Donnet, France has lost :i
model prelate, who did much for the revivnl
of Christianity and the Catholic religion.
He was liberal, tolerant, and a broad church
man ; he never allowed politics to get mixed
up with religion. Rumour said he was like
Emile de Girardin, a natural son of Louis
Philippe. He loved retreat and silence ;
was very simple in his habits, and eschewed
all titles; he received his visitors when
making his toilet ; he loved novel pursuits.
He said: "Cardinal Mattieu represented
theology, Cardinal Dirboy jurisprudence,
Cardinal Conchase politics, while I repre
sent agriculture." His great pleasure was
tomixamon and converse with the pea
sants; on one occasion he was driving past
a field and saw 3 poor farmer endeavoring
to hood some stocks of com against threat
ening rain; he pulled up. and he and his
secretary lent a hand. When near eighty
years old, he crossed a stream on horseback,
and in the depth of winter, to arrive in time
at a parish church where he had promised
to officiate. In his youth he was very deli
cate, and in a speech in the Senate on the
untimely burials bill, he stated that when a
student he was so ill that he was certified to
be dead by the doctor, and conscious of all
that was passing, he by a supernatural effort
rose up in his coffin as preparations were
being made to nail down the lid.' - - - -
We were all prepared for a dull Christ
mas, and so were not disappointed at its
being realized ; a dripping, slippery dy,
suggestive of anything but mirth; but of
stopping ; within doors and , acting on; the
sage motto of early to bed," even without
roast beef or plum pudding. Fortunately it
is the period of the year when concierges
and servants in general are politeness itself,
for New Year's day is "ahead, when their
annual gratuities fall due, like death and
taxes in point of certainty. There -was
consolation in seeing the children happy.
in counting their great expectations
brought to them by " St. Nicholas;
it recalled our own souvenirs, and
we had the melancholy mental pleasure
of taking stock of all our. lapsed Christ
mases. a ." How - many . of us - could have
wished to say, as in the Silver King: "Oh
God, put back thy universe, and give tne
yesterday." The Christmas Eve midnight
masses -were fairly attended,' but the suc
ceeding supper parties were limited, and
bills of fare economical.
Louis Michel offers, on the part of herself
and sister and brother anarchists, to give
their services gratuitiusly in demolishing
what rests of the Tuileries.. f .They are
veritable gluttons ; to say they ure ' not con
tent with having burnt it down.
Another gormand is M. de Lesseps. Not
content with cutting isthmuses, he now is at

A Cow-Boy's Unfortunate Aim.
Arizona Correspondence of the Philadelphia
Arizona is full of. cow-boys. Some of
them are outlaws of the worst description.
It was a common thing for eight or ten of
these cut-throats to ride into Californh City,
enter a saloon, present a pistol to the bar
keeper's head, and demand that the liquors
he set out. As the fiery element warmed
them up they would often secure a violin
or banjo, and improvise a regular Mstg
dance." Each fellow would select a partner
from among the crowd, the musician would
start up the "Arkansas Traveller" or some
other familiar tune, and the leader would
call out "Forward four," and the dance
commenced. When the figure 'balance to
vour pirtners" was reached, many a fellow
would 'cut the pigeon-wing," and his part- i
ner, not to be outdone, would indulge in j
some fantastic steps, which would do credit
to the most famed clog-daner on the min
strel boards. In the height of this " revelry
would begin a fusillade from revolvers.
liunor ! banff! bang! and above the dim th
leader would be heard
your partners; promenade
all." - The first
figure being finished, every fellow would be
gin to look at the heels of his boots to see j
where the bullet3 were. The result would
disclose that a large majority had been hit
about the heel with a bullet. This practice
of shooting at the heels of one's boots is
common among the cow-boys, and so accu
rate, are they in their aim that an accident;
seldom occurs. Shooting the heels off one
another's boots is a common recreation with
them. . . ;
On the occasion of one c stag dance " a
cow-boy who had recently joined the gang
participated in the fusi adc. On n exam -
ination at the close of the first figure one of
the members was found to be shot through "(
the foot The festivities were suddenly I
stopped. The leader announced that an :
investigation would at once begin to ascer
tain the guilty party. A mock court was
convened. "Curly" Bill" was selected for
judge. Crone wbs made sheriff. Tom
Harper was chosen clerk. The sheriff
nrrested the new member as the guilty
party. A prosecuting attorney was chosen,
and the court assigned counsel to defend the
nrisnnpr. fn n fpv mnments the nrosecut-
ing attorney hailed the clerk the indict-
ment, and the court ' ordered the. clerk to
read it to the prisoner, who was commanded
to stand up. The clerk did as he was
ordered and this was the document that he
read : :
We, the undersigned, Grand ' Jurors for
the county of Cochise, in the Territory of
Arizona, do find Joe Palmer guilty of felony
in having wounded Abe Saunders in the
foot in attempting to shoot the heel off said
Saunder's boot while said Saunder's " cut
the pigeoii-wing.'l in figure next to the last
in the first set at the 'stag dance1' held in
California City, in said territory, on Satur
day night, June 20, 1SS1.
The court - Guilty or not guilty ?
Prisoner Not guilty.
Court The trial will proceed. Sheriff,
calt the jury.-' - - - -
All the formality of selecting a jury, the
taking of testimony and the cross-examination
by counsel was gone, through with. No
detail of an ordinary trial at law was omit
ted. Finally the case ws submitted to the
jury, who, after a few minutes' consultation
announced that they had 'agreed upon a ver
dict. The court Gentlemen, have you agreed
upon a vet diet ? -Foreman
; of -the jury We have , your
Honor ' v
The court Clerk, read the verdict
The foreman of the jury hands the clerk

We, the undersigned jurors, do find the'
prisoner guilty as charged.
"Joe Halmer," said the Judge, " stand up
Joe Halrn-r; the jury of, your peers having ,
found you guilty of a heinous offense, it
becomes the duty of this court to pronounce
sentenae upon you. You have had a fair
nd impartial trial. Abe counsel defended
yon. There is nothing but for the court to
pronounce sentence. The sentence of the
court is that you be taken to the San Simon
valhy, and between daybreik and sunrise be
executed. Sheriff, take charge of the pris
oner." The next morning the sentence was car
ried into execution, and Pdlmer was shot.
Burly Bill," in speaking of this
afterwards, remarked that no mn was
worthy to associate with residents of San
Simon who could not shoot the heel off a
fellow's boot while he danced.

and this acuident ulone accounted for bis arrival
in Hawaii. It ia probable that the destitution
of bia forlorn and unfortunate condition waa
sufficient to recommend him to the kind consid
eration of u people proverbially generous, but at
any rate he chore to remain where fie elomcnla
hud cast him, and alter he bad speedily learned tbe
Hawaiian language, was employed to tench the
small native school ct K . Now, there waa
at that time a certain missionary who resided not
far from this place. Tbe good divine hud a warm,
hospitable heart, a comely home und an extremely
fair young daughter named Edith, who bad been
born und reared hero in mid-ocean. Never hud
ahe visited the East or the West, or tasted the
fascinating but often intoxicating, sweets of
loieign society. Hut, instead, ahe bad associated
with tbe deep-heaving ecu, the sublime moun
tains and the bright tropical scenca o these
almost Elysi an isles. Her mind partook of na
ture's unsullied glory; her heart waa trunslused
with the serene beauty around her, and tier fea
tures wore the innocent, lovely expreaaivenesa
which poets attribute to the angelic perfection
that is charmingly imagined in spotless realm
beyond the skies. And oft in the blissful solitude
of evening hud she sat in her bower of palms und
flowers with the interminable viata of ocoun ex
piindin before her, and fixed her dark blue medi
tative eyea upon the ruby and guidon Hawaiian
aunset skie that glowed above her. aa if alio waa
dreaming of sometbiog pleasant, supernal, holy
and .trunscendentally blessed. Oh) did ahe
think ol love?
It is not the puny, mincing, effeminate quali

nobility of etalwart manhood that ever apeak
most eloquently to. their sentient eouU, und
finally awakes tne harmonioua echoes of hallowed
and divine affection in pure and gontle bottoms.
John Griffith was every inch a man.. When the
missionary first iovited him to tbe panonage,
which happened in the due course of event, thut
edesiuBtio lelt a spontaneous confidence in John'
honor, for such is the force and impresivnea oT
exalted manlinesa that it commands credence and
repect by its very -appearance. And Edith aa
alie noon came to know the viaitor, loved hint
with a deep and genuine animation. From time
to titue, when they casually 'met under the pa
ternal roof, an eye filled in the subtle lore of
love might eartjAy' have detected the vague but
certain evld&bcea ol mutually reciprocated af
fection. Y,(t the good missionary gave no feign
of disapproval, jxirliape, because lie failtd to

when the transport of theso meetings,' '--o
closely blended with the incense and lor,
of nature's magnificence, should be forever
blighted by the agony of an everlasting separation.
John Griffith solicited Edith's hand in marriage.
Her father stared in blunk surprise at the iropi-
sition. and when he had recovered himself huB-

auitor implored in vain. The father still ar
rogantly declared his daughter should wed a

day Edith wasent in charge of an elderly aunt
to distant lands, and John hastened to quit a
place where even the ever present aea perpetually
reminded him of a dear face and heavenly form
