LETTER FROM PARIS.
Tho following interesting letter from Paris wo
take from the New York Times of Monday :
THE OBEAT KXHIIUTION-niOOliEHS OF THE WOBK
ON THE C1IA1II' DE M?B8-P?BEWELL OF
ADELINA r-ATTI-TUE BONAFAETES.
PABIS, Friday, April 27_The work on the
Ohamp do Mars, in preparation for the Universal
Exposition of 18G7, is carried on with groat onor
gy, and no doubt is eutortainod that everything
will be ready for tho appolntod time-barring, of
course, a general European war, the effect of
which would bo to throw all peaceful strugglos of
tbiB kind into the background, for the time being.
Tho present indications are that the Fair will bo
held without postponement, and it promises to bo
tho most completo and magnificent display which
has yet boen collected, not merely of the world s
industrial products, but ofthofour qnartors of tho
globe itself, with their customs, curiosities, aroho
ology, and ethnography, groupod together in one
vast and incomparable- panorama. Not to rofor
particularly to this industrial and agricultural
feature of the Exposition, I may enumorate
some of the marvels which will be found scat
tered about this park of fairy land, sepa
rato from the groat Exhibition building
itself. There will be several aquara. of both
fsalt and fresh water ; a palace of humming
birds; a Chinese tower, constructed entirely of
porcelain; African huts, Indian wigwams, Norwe
gian cabins; Russian cottages. German modol
farm s, Japat,ese, Persian, Turkish and Tunisian
kiosks, Neapolitan Tillas, bamboo pavilions, and
modela of tonemont-housos of various kinds-omit
ting, it is to be hoped, any specimens from the
Bixth Ward, New York; antiquities from Hercu
lauenm and Pompeii, a Persian opium factory,
' and several Chinese coffee-houses, with various
descriptions of beverages; the hunting box of a
Japanese Prince, ?ko., ?to. The Viceroy of Egypt,
alone, will send an exhibition complete in itself.
With this intention, he baa dispatched messen
gers to Soudan, to coleot tho many curious
things producod by that almost unknown region
of Africa. Two other expeditions have been sent
out, one into Upper Egypt, the other to tho Delta.
The Viceroy has signified his intention to exhibit
the ontiro museum of Boning, which is a col
lection of objects of art and industry extend
ing over a period of B?X thousand years, all in
an excellent state of preservation, and offering
proofs of ancient civilization, of which the mod
ern world has not tho most distant idea. The
decoration ol the Egyption galleries in the princi
pal Exhibition building is to be copied exactly
from the antique monuments of Egypt, by the
moulding process,|aud will alone constitute a com
plete school of archaeology, for artists and scion
tido men. In the park is to bo erected a magnii
cent house, in the Arab style, built and ornamented
by Egyptian workmen, to bo partly occupied by
tho Viceroy himself, and partly by an Oriental
coffee-house, where hospitality is to be dispensed
with regal eplendor. Connected with this palace
will be plans in relief of the principal c.tios of
Egypt, a court-yard, with fountains and verandahs
encircling, iu which will be established eight dif
ferent descriptions of Egyptian shopkeepers and
tradesmen. The Viceroy also contributes a py
l?ne, or habitation of a fellah, from Upper Egypt,
containing ovens for artificial inoubation, a rook
ery, and stables for a number of dromedaries, to
be exhibited as used in war.
I find it somewhat d.fficult to ascertain, with
any degree of certainty or accuracy, what the con
tributions of our own country aro to be, beyond
the ten wise men who aro to receive $1000 oaoh in
greenbacks to pay the expense of several mtnths'
residence in Paris, and remunerate them for their
time and labor in preparing a complete report on
the marvels which will be spread before them. As
it has been determined to continue the exhibition
an entire year. perhaps<CongresB will be gracions
enough to add A trifling additional allowance to
this assemblage of savans, in order that the inn
keepers of Paris shall not bo obliged to retain their
luggage as seourity for the payment of board
bills. I would also venture to suggest that they
bring such portable articles of value as they may
happen to possess, to be deposited in the paternal
eharge of the mont de piete, in case of emergeooy.
There will also be loft the resource of the throng
of wealthy Americans, who will no doubt visit
Paris during the exhibition, aud who might be
willing to subscribe a few dollars each in order to
keep the Scientific Commission from the United
States out of French almahouacs. One thing in
quite certain : they must not expect to occupy
apartments at the Grand Hotel, or to dine habit
ually at tho Maiaon Doroo, or the Trois Freres.
AB it now costs a single person not less than four
dollars a day (I mean, of course, foreign visitors)
to live decently in Pirie, and will coat half as
muoh more when the Exhibition shall have brought
half the world to the French capital, a very mod
erate idea of mathematics will enable the reader
to arrive at an appropriate idea of the period ten
scientific gentlemen from America or elsewhere
will be enabled to live here on ten thousand dol
lars, United States currency. In sober serious
ness, tlfe sum would not more than cover the ex
penses of two such gentlemen as our Government
should appoint to study and report upon the Ex
position of 1HC7, and tho appropriation one;lit
therefore to be increased, or the idoa of sending
a Commission should be abandoned altogether.
Adelina Patti hado farewell to lier Parisian
rienda on Wednesday evening, amid a blaze of
glory. All the enthusiastic admirers of the young
cantatrice were there, jamming the Italian Opera
house from parterre to dome, and the receipts,
without increase of the rates of admission, closely
approached twenty thousand francs. Patti'a en
gagement has beeu the pecuniary salvation of M.
Bagier. this season, notwithstanding the large
salary paid her, for on every evening she has ap
? oared the theatre has been crowded. Her critics,
owever they may reproach her for embellishing
the music of the masters, do not attempt to deny
that no songstress, sincothedaysof Mahbran, has
enjoyed a similar popularity. This last periorm
ance was one uninterrupted ovation, from begin
ning to end, upon a stage covered with wreaths and
bouquets. The oldest habitues of the Italiens never
before saw such a quantity of floral offering??
thrown at the foet of an artist, and such was the
avalanche after the act of "Don Pasquale," in
which tho exceptional qualities of Patti's incom
parable voice are displayed to the greatest ad
" vantage, that a squad of chorus singers was
obliged to carry oil the mountains of lilacs and
roses thrown upon the stage. The etage-boxea
of the opora-houss were ocoupiod by the most
fanatical of the diva's admirers. The Baronosa
de Rothschild, Mesdames Brandus, de Cazos and
de Ganet seemed to have brought with them in
exhaastiDle supplies of Howers, and thore were
moments when Baron Rothschild himself seemed
on the point of falling on the stage with one of hie
enormous bouquets. Anaoreon, under the featurei
of the immortal Auber, bearing lightly and
jauntily his eighty-four years, brought alao hi?
tribute of homage to the star of the hour, who
will next season give to the Parisians, in the
tongue of Tasso, the "Black Domino" ant'
Several boxes of papers, belonging to the estate
of Joseph Bonaparte, had recently arrived at tbc
Tuileries, from the Eternal City. These doon'
meets are said to include not only a large portion
of the ex-king of Spain's correspondence with tht
Emperor Napoleon I, but also many curious and
interesting letters from eminent literary men,
?avails and politicians, in Europe and the United
States. TbO <tot<!8 extoid over a wide period ol
Joseph Bonaparte's life, ?tala come down to aboul
the year 1840. Among the Miora ?vre several
from Madame De Ht iel, together with many ilia?
portant documents in relation to St. Helena. II
is boheved tbat these papers contain traoes of the
political association formed after tho'full of the
Empire and known to have existed throughout
the Restoration and the reign of Louis Philippo.
It is scarcely to be oxueoted, however, that all wii
be permitted to see tho light- at least during tht
life of the present Emperor.
Apropos of the Bonapartes, the following ar<
the places where tho mortal remains of the de
ceased member* of this illustrious family are de

[Prom the N. T. Herald.]
ANTONIO LOPEZ DE SANTA ANNA, ex-President
and Dictator of Mexico, arrived from St. Thomas
at Elizabetbport, N. J., on tho 11th inet., and is
now residing with a friend at that place. The pur
poso for which ho comos is not generally known
bat it is supposed that it is to aid by some means
the oauso of tho Liberals in Mexico against MAXI
MILIAN of Austria. Ho has lately avowod hostility
to tho latter, whom ho formerly lookod upon as
ono destined to give peace to Ina diatrae'ed coun
Santa Anna has passed a rcmarkablo career and
is a remarkable character. Ho was born in Jalaps,
February 21, 1798. He tiret carne into public no
tico in 1821, in tho Mexican war of indouondeiice;
and in 1822, having expelled tbo royalists from
Vera Crnz. Tie was appointed to tho command of
that city. Id November of that yoar ho was de
posed by Yturbido, who bad proclaimed himself
Emperor; but Santa Anna refused to submit to
his authority, raisod the banner of tho Republic
in Vera Cruz, and 1823 succeeded in comparing
Yturbido's downfall. In the changos which quick
ly followed ho placed him-olf at tho head of the
fodoral party, but was defeated, and retired to hie
estato at Jalapa.
In' 1828 he took the field against the Govern
ment of Pedraza, chosen to the Presiden jy by an
electoral majority of two, declaring the election
of Guerrero valid; and after a series of engage
ments retired to Oajaca. Tho command of the
forces against the Spanish expedition under Bar
radas was intrueted to him; and embarking at
Vera Graz he forced Barradas to capitulate at
Tampico, Soptember 11, 1829. Qtiorrero made
bim Minister of War and Commander-in-Chief of
tho army, but continuing afterward to exercise
the dictatorial powors with which he had been in
vested to ropel the invasion, Santa Anna combin
ed with Bustamente to overthrow him, and the
latter was made President by the army. In Jan
uary, 1832, however, Santa Anna headed A now
insurrection, declaring for his formor opponent,
Pedraza, whose triumph he insured by a victory
ovor the government troops in Ootober of that
year. Being himself chosen President in March,
1833, he had to confront a popular insurrection
under Arista and Don Gabriel Duran, but speedi
ly subdued it. He now left tho party of the
federalists, and put himself at tho head of tho
coutralista, who wished tho power concentrated
in the executive government. Though a favorite
with tho army, which desired him to bo made
Dictator, ho was unpopular with the nation, es
pecially aa a rumor was (spreading that he aimed
at tbo imperial dignity.
A new revolt broke out in four provincos, and a
manifesto WHB issued at Texea against his gov
ernment. On May 11, 1835, he utterly dofeatod
tho army of the innurgnnto on the plain's of Guad
alupe, nour Zacatecas, killing two thousand aud
taking two thousand Bevon hundred prisoners.
I his was a fatal blow to Hie republican party in
Mexico, and Santa Anna was named dictator. The
destruction of the federal constitution was noon
consummated; the Stato legislatures were abol
ished, their places being supplied by a departmen
tal i-.muic.il, and the Governors of tho several
States became dependent upon the supreme pow
er. Mexico was submissive, but a revolutionary
feeling had been long existing in Texas, which
now broke ont into open insurrection. Early in
1836 Santa Anna took the field in person. By the
middle of February he reached tbo Rio Grande at
the head of six thousand troops, stormed the
Alamo at San Antonio on March 6, after several
days' siege, and massacred its defenders, but with
great loss to himself ; and after the rnassacro at
Goliad, done nnder his express orders, marched
toward Gonzales. At San Jacinto he met the
Texan army under Houston, by whom he WSB to
tally routed, April 21, and the day following taken
prisoner. Daring his captivity he made a tn-aty
with the Texane, which resulted in nothing, as his
functions were Buspended by the Mexican gov
In 1837 he was set at liberty, and returned to
bia native country by way of 'the United States.
On reaching Vera Graz be was coldly received. At
the Presidential election of that year he received
bat two oat of eixty-niae electoral votes. He had
retired to his estate, twenty-seven miles from Vera
Cruz, when (November 27) the Castle of han Juan
de Ulloa was bombarded by the French. He
hastened to Vera Grnz, where his services were
accepted by General Victoria, and took command
after the fall of the castle. He repelled an as
sault upon that city by tho Fronob (December 5).
forcing them to re-emoark, but received a wound
in the leg whieh necessitated its amputation. In
the contentions between the centraliste and the
federalists which during the following years dis
tracted Mexico, he was ODO of the leaders ef the
former; and from October 10, 1841, to June 4,
1844, be was virtual Dictator, under the title of
Provisional President, Bravo aud Oanalizo acting
as his substitutes daring two intervals of absence
with the army. Ho wan again Constitutional Pres
ident, under the instrument of June 12, 1813, from
June 4 to September 20, 1844, when he was de
posed by a new revolution, taken prisoner near
TIacolula on January 15, 1845, banished for ten
years, and took np his residence in Cuba.
Tho two Bucceoding Presidents, Herrera and
Paredes, found themselves unable to grapple with
the difficulties u mini- which the country WHS labor
ing, aggravated aa they wero by the war just
breaking out with the United States, danta Anna
was recalled, and by the connivance of the Ameri
can government, which, for reasons that havo
never been made known, supposed bim favorablo
to peace and to recognizing the independence of
Texas, he waa permitted to pas8 through the lleet
and reach Moxico in safety. There, contrary to
the opinion entertained in the Unitod States, he
declared vigorously for tbo war, and was appoint
ed generalisdimo by the provisional government
under Salas, and in December waa made Provi
sional President. Immediately after, at the head
'if twenty thousand men, tho flower of the Mexi
can army, ho advanced northward, and on. Febru
ary 22, 1847, attacked the Am er i jan troops at
Buena Vista, five thousand strong, under General
Taylor. He waa effectually repula ed. but never
theless matntainod his r?putation and popularity,
and collected a new army for the defence of the
eastern frontier. In the meantime ?naya waa
elected President, and Santa Anna, takiug com
mand of hia troops, intrenched himself at Gorro
Gordo, where, on April l8 he was attacked and
defeated by the Amerioana under Scott. Yet in
spite of these disasters he was enabled to collect
throe thousand men from the fragments of hie
i broken army, and, retreating toward the national
capital, halted at Ay ntl v Tnere he was informed
? Of hie appointment to the Presidency, aa it was
? felt by the Mexioans, amid all their disheartening
i reversos, that he waa the only one who could make
i head against the Americans with any prospect of
I anocesa. But finding subsequently that the elec
> tion for President which the 8tates had held on
1 May 15 waa unfavorable to his pretensions, he
. prevailed on Congress to postpone the counting
1 of votes until January, 1818. and in the meantime
banished or imprisoned all those opposing his
> schemes, and established a severe censorship of
i the press. Daring the conreo of the yoar he car
- ried on secret negotiations with Scott and Trist,
i the Amor loan c ira mia al?n or, with qiieationablo
' sincerity, and certainly with no result. He" or
?anized an army of thirty thousand men for the
efence of the capital. The battles of Oontreraa
l and Obnrabaaco followed (August 19 and CO,
? 1847), &nd the next day an armistice, proposed by
'? Gen. Scott, was accepted by' him, wt-foh Sttepoud
1 ed hostilities till September 8. The battle of
Molinos del Roy was fought September 9; and on
i Septombcr 16,1847, the city of Mexioo waa cap
i tured, having previously boen evacuated by the
i officers of the Government.
I H nita Anna inw resigned the executive oh iir to
Sena y Pena, who bad been constitutionally elect
i ed his successor, and though ho despaired of auo
> coBsfully resisting tho party of peace in Moxico,
he made t, last effort to rotrieve his. reputation by
) the siege of Puebla; but ho was attacked by Qon.
? Lano at Haamantla, and forced to retire from the
. placo, whiob waa now relloved. In tbo middle of
I January, 1848, an attempt was made to anrprl?e
- him at Tehuaoan, where ho wa? lurking, but fail'
, ed; and about February 1, Santa Anna informed
" the Minister of War and the American Commaud
; or-in-Chief that he desired to leave Mexico, and
- "seek an au- lum on a foreign soil, where he might
r pass his last days in that tranquillity which he
i could never find in the land of his birth." The
1 desired permission was granted, and on April 5,
i 1819, he took passage from La Antlgu* to Jamal
? oa. lu that island ne remained several years; but
the anarohloal condition of Mexioo under the
a President)!?- of Herrera and Arista turned men's
S eyes oneeTnpro npon him, a. ? returning to M?xl
B coln 1863, ho was received with greatenthnsi
- asm. He waa, appointed President for one year,
B aft-' which he was to call a constituent C ingress;
0i but he fomented a new revolution, by which he
. waa declared President for life, with power to
D appoint his auooeaaor, and the title of Moat So
. rene Highness. He began to rule with despotic
authority, and the revolution of Ayntia followed,
led by General Alvaroz. After a staggie of two
years. Santa Anna, finding himsclj without re
sources, since he had spent the ten rallions of the
Gadsden treatv, signed his unconditpnnl abdica
tion, and sailed (August K5,1855) irai Vera Cruz
for Havana, no afterwards went p Turbaco,
Venezuela, for two years, and has sirso resided in
the Island of St. Thomas. On tho ad'ont of Max
imillian in Mexico ho embraced thetause of tho
usurper, believing, as ho detlared, Oat Maximi
lian couid restore peaco to tht country. Ho was
disnppointod, bowevor, in his' hopes and porhaps
his expectations; for ho soon.abandoned Mexico
and the causo and returned toBt. Thomas. lloro
he has since resided. When Mr. Seward was in
