NEW YORK, July 12-8 A. li.
Governor Hoffman has issued a proclama?
tion that the Orange procession will be pro?
tected, whereupon Police Superintendent
Kelso withdrew his order forbidding the pro?
cession. It is understood that General Mc?
Dowell will co-operate with the State authori?
Circulars have been* issued for the forma?
tion of a Protestant League of America,
wherein it is claimed that Roman Catholicism
br incompatible with civil and religious liberty.
It is understood that six thousand were en?
rolled for this organization yesterday.
Batteries.have been placed at several points
where an attack of the procession ls appre?
hended. Superintendent Kelsc ls more hope?
ful this morning of a peaceful issue. The po?
lice and military arrangements are complete.
The streets in the up-town districts have the
appearance'of a holiday. Groups ot loungers
are to be seen on nearly every corner. Gangs
of men may be noticed going In the direction
of the western part of ?he city. Altogether
affairs look very threatening. The men In the
marble and stone works along the East River
have nearly all left work, lt is supposed for the
purpose of opposing the Orange parade. Ru?
mors are rife that rioting Is how going on in
the upper part of 9th avenue. "
NOON.-The much talked of and long looked
for riot commenced about a quarter before ll
this morning. Reports have commenced com?
ing in. The first report was from the 23d pre?
cinct, and was to the effect that a mob had col?
lected in the vicinity of 83d street and 3d
avenue, and were driving the people from the
streets. Two hundred and twenty-five police?
men Were Immediately picked out, and, under
-command o? Captain Hedden, of the 15th pre?
cinct, ordered to the above point to disperse
The second dispatch was from the 324 pre?
cinct, and stated tbat the rioters were march?
ing through the Boulevard and had attacked
Italian and Swiss'laborers In the vicinity of
?3d street and 9th avenne. The superinten?
dent of police and General Shaler Immediately
held a consulta tl on, and concluded to send a
regiment to that point. General Shaler im?
mediately ordered seven companies ot the
71st regiment, Colonel Bockafeiler command?
ing, to proceed to and guard that point. This
last order had barely been given when anoth?
er report was received. Several Fenians col?
lected about (he Fenian headquarters, 19 and
21, avenue A, where a large quantity of arms
are stored, and clamored loudly to be given
their arms. This was refused, and they
threatened to'pull down the place. About 250
officers wet3 put in stages immediately and
. At the 5th regiment armory in Hester Btreet,
a large crowd had collected and signified their
intention of taking the arms: There are
about one hundred men of the regiment in the
armory, to each of whom were dealt out forty
rounds of cartridges. This morning, seeing
that the regiment were prepared for them, one
brawny Individual said: ,lComebyes; letti
go down to Seventh ward aad get the lads,
and we'll clear oat the d-r. Dutch." The ma?
jority of the mob then et ur ted off under the
leadership ot this man to get the "lads."

No disturbances yet. but indications favor a
riot and bloodshed this evening. The street
corners and saloons are crowded with ''Hiber?
nians," who maintain a sullen silence.
LITER.-The Orange procession forjied be- ;
tween two r?giments and four hundred police.
Only about two hundred men were in line with

other the William ot Orange on horseback.
They waited for sometime for the band. The
soldiers loade d with balls, and the procession

similarly guarded'. The ferry boats were held
In the river, until the charac ter of the passen?

Getting to the City-First Impressions
A Trip to Versailles- Thc Ruins and
the Spirit of the People.
[Correspondence Boston. Advertiser.]
PARIS, June 21.
I have run over here to Bee with my own
eyeB what 1B the condition of Paris, and how
far the dreadful stories of its destruction are
true. The political situation, too. is BO inter?
esting that I considered it desirable to study
lt on the spot, and to ascertain as far as possi?
ble what is the future of unhappy France. In
all essentials Paris ls more fearfully damaged
than any account I have read has brought
home to me, and alLthat I feared concerning
the uncertainty of M. Thierg's tenure bas' been
confirmed. But I will, if you please, give you
the rough note3 of my trip hither and the im?
pressions' it bas conveyed, premising that I
arrived without difficulty, and that I am BO
fortunate as to possess friends In Parla who
have exceptional opportunities for acquir?
ing sound information. First, as to the Jour
The Prussian soldiers at the raliway stations
of Amiens and'Greuilly bring the condition of
France more thoroughly home to the visitor
than aught else he has seen on bis way to
Paris from London. There bas been a little
unusual strictness with the passports. You
have paid the slightly exorbitant sum of eight
shillings to have yours vised at the French
consular office in Finsbury square, and have
been content to set the exaction down to the
pecuniary dlfficu'ties of France. It 1s only
when you feel the cold gray eye. of authority
upon you at the Calais landing-place, and find
yourself examined from top to toe, that you
realize that the whole country ls in a state of
siege. You ask the English friend you meet
in the refreshment-room it Prussians are to be
seen on the way down, and receive the lacon?
ic answer, "Heaps!"
A stumpy figure in blue cloth, and with a
helmet of shining brass, marches up and down
the Amelns platlorm. It is the first Prussian
soldier I have seen, and I regard him curious?
ly. He is not a favorable specimen, being, in
truth, rather under the standard-ot height,
concerning which so. much indignation bas
been expressed by the reformers of the Brit?
ish army. He is squatty, moreover, and Dutch
bulIL But'he ts on sentry duty; and as he
walka slowly up and down, his musket over
his shoulder and his bayonet fixed, be la the
Impersonation of victory-the commonplace
symbol of France's defeat. There were plenty
of other Prussian soldiers. Lat .T, I saw them
-In great abundance in the fields as the train
snot by, In tents and drilling, and at other
stations on my way to Paris. But they none
of them quite produced the impression caused
by this very common soldier. It was on the
day of the rejoicing at Berlin that I made my ;
! way hither, aud behind this sentry one seem?
ed to see Kaiser Wilhelm, Moltke, Bismarck,
I ard the whole might and pomp of the German
army. We are accustomed to say that the po?
liceman's truncheon represents the law ant!
order of Eogland, and it was in some such
connection that one peered Into the stolid
brown face of the little man in the helmet, and
' wondered how the Frenchmen near liked his
1 presence. v
[ Paris looked bright and clean as we entered
, It by the Chemin de Fer du Nord. The friend I
travelled with ls, above all things, a prudent
man; so he had registered his small hand-bag
Instead of taking lt with him ia the .carriage.
He might lose it, he said. It was awkward
carrying lt from railway to boat. He preferred
having nothing. to think of on the journey.
This cogent reasoning caused me to sic fifty
' five minutes by the* clock in the court-yard of
the station. The railway staff was inadequate
or demoralized, and the luggage from England
was made to give way to tnat brought in by
half a. dozen local trains. Could anything
mark the altered condition bf things mote
strongly ? The mall trains between London
and Paris are In ordinary times triumphs of
organization. The whole force o? the compa?
nies is concentrated to Insure punctuality, and
that luggage and passengers shall be promptly
assorted on arrival. AaTt was, I resigned my?
self to late, and after growling at the "pru?
dence-' which prevented cny "seeing aushfcB?
Paris that night, applied myself to the_study a*<
the scene around The Paris cab men attained a
position under the Commode which they are
loth to resign.. Each man charged what seemed
right In his own eyes. It is the same thing
now. The National Assembly and its servants
have hot bad lime to tura 'their attention to a
matter which our own home secretary found
too much for him, though public opinion was
unanimous in his favor aud the country was at
peace. -The CUD-fare s of Paris have not been
settled, and the old regulations concerning
the "courso" and "the hom" are laughed to
scorn. Five francs, eight franc3. twelve francs,
according to the conscience of the driver, were
asked for distances for which two, three, and
four francs would be handsome pay. It was
amusing to. not? the disgust of the ,people
with luggage who found their efforts at hiring
met with a disdainful shrug. This was the first
stage of tue bargain, and no Paris cabman
will, under any circumstances, carry you any?
where without a distinct agreement before?
hand. Now, no one likes parting with his
moneyless than a Frenchman, and the air re?
sounded with oaths, the'gesticulations grew
fast and furious, and finally many a stout and
respectable paterfamilias shouldered his own
portmanteau and disappeared, puffing and
groaning.under a burden which he carried as
Christian ls represented doing In the "Pilgrim's
My friend appears at last smiling feebly, and
Jocularly penitent. Then comes our first drive
through the city-dusk coming on raDldly and
we tired and hungry with our day's travel.
We see but little. A lamp-post broken off
short and lying helplessly In the gutter, other
lamp-posts twisted into odd shapes like brazen
serpents which have rusted; a broken plate
glass window; a shop-front as completely out
as if "selling off for alterations;'' a few odd
looking holes a foot or two in diameter, show?
ing where stout stone walls had been perforat?
ed like pasteboard; soldiers on duty here and -
there,' and a vast number ot French uniforms
in the streets, are the chief things that we see.
It is 9 P. M. when we sit down to dinner at
Volsin'a, and we agree that Paris is not so
much altered after all. Where have all the
garcons hidden themselves during the two
si?gea the beautiful city has undergone ? I
was last at Voisin's a few days before Sedan,
and I recognize every walter I saw then.
There la the bland proprietor, too, with tho
cork leg, rubbing his hands and giving vocal
annotation to the bill of fare just published.
The garcon who sells cigars as his own specu?
lation, recommends the Partagas In the big
box lu exactly the same tones as he did last
August, and the other walters assist each other
andlookonand cry, "JBten, HTsieu" in.a way
which makes one rub one's eyes and ask if ail
one bas read concerning Paris besieged, Paris
conquered, Paris'starving, and Paris In flames,
be not part of some Idle dream. The pier
glasses, the walls of white and gold, the gay
ulk and merry laughter of the replete diners,
and the general llght-beariedneas which
seemed to prevail, were all bewildering. There
ls a great want of gas in the streets. Only
every other lamp is lighted there, and the
sparse jets 6hed but only a leeble glimmer.
"There are great plies of stone, too, by a corner
in the Bun Royale 'and opposite the-Made?
laine, and me stump of the column which

WILL TSE GLORIOUS PEACE BE LABI
Civil and Military Sentiment-An En?
glishman's Look Into the Future. :
[Berlin Correspondence London News.] -
It is cow ID the Germ?n capital the day after
the ball. Tbe ball was a great success, and the
fiddlers and the dancers, kept it up with un?
flagging perseverance. But everything must
have an end, and triumphal d?monstrations are
not to be maintained forever, however ardent
the enthusiasm. Now, the face of tbe ball?
room beauty is haggard and her eyes are
bleared. The baU-dress lies rumpled, soiled,
and ragged' round the. skirts. Berlin's
gala-dress stood the sun pretty well, only
that the ruchlng of laurel leaves, 'oak plants,
and pine coils faded and lost their bright green?
ness. But still the ribbon banners and the sash
pennons flaunted bravely till Monday, and then
came such a deluge of rain as bas not often,
been seen in Berlin or anywhere else. It
woefully bedraggled the cheap finery which
the triumphant beauty wore so persistently; It
made her uncommonly muddy all over, and
must have stirred in her bosom reflections
anent the evanescence of tinsel in general. To
drop tbe metaphor, Berlin is in the weather
dumps. There Ts a big drop at the end of Vic?
tory's nose, and Germania looks as if she
would fain borrow a carriage-umbrella to keep
the rain off herself and Alsace and Lorraine.
I don't think the rain is at all a bad thing for
Berlin: there is an allegory in lt which symbol?
izes the uncertainty of human things. But
two days ago the glorious sunshine-emblem
of that splendor of German prosperity on
which, the heavens themselves were glad to
shine-seemed as if it would last forever; the
downpour of yesterday, demonstrating the.
fickleness of the weather, may well remind
the thoughtful how Fortune can be as caprici?
ous as are the skies. A condition of general
moisture bas a strong tendency to damp out
any exuberance of a cock-a-hoop triumph.
And I do not think one could claim to be a
truthful reporter who did not testify to his re?
cognition in the last few days of a weakness in
this direction. There is a good deal o? human
nature in most people, you see; and human
nature being weak, is apt 'to give way to Im?
pulse, association, and the influence of the
hour. What is the influence 01 the hour in
which a triumphal entry takes place? You
may split hairs assiduously, and .draw sub?
tle distinctions between the emotion of spe?
cific triumph and a generic enjoyment
of la glorie; but the two have a plaguy
Sroneness to rr.n Into each other. I have
een a warm, and as I trust conscientious, ad?
mirer of the German character, its modera?
tion, its self-command, its love of peace. But
drink will make a demon of a saint, and
triumphal entries form an Intoxicating tip?
ple very dangerous to those national charac?
teristics which I have admired; for. after all,
national character ls but a faggot, so to speak,
of individual human natures bound together.
I was not among those who thought that such
j magnanimity could be expected of the Ger?
mans as to take the initiative In proposing
j peace ofter Sedan; or thal lt was to be ezpeot
! ed of them that they should ultimately ratify
peace without taking something to show for
their fighting work. We live In the age of
Iron, (mingled with that of brass.) not in that
of gold. But I do think that lt would have
been' a splendid moral victory-a thing to
benefit herself in the present and in the future,
and 1,0 have kindled the admiration and re?
spect of posterity-if Germany, aller her war,
had come to her peace without a physical ex?
hibition of her triumph. Her triumph would
have been none the smaller If Berlin bad not
hoisted a flag or erected a statue; it is none
the greater because the streets of Berlin have
resounded to the tread and the cheers pf a
victorious army bearing the eagles and ban?
ners of the vanquished.
Not that the Berliners overtly craved any
more fighting In specific words even when the
effervescence of the triumph was atlts highest
? In them. There has grown up a fashion of
(Jaunting at the possibility of-any more war, a
jBurit ol ridiculing any one who hints at see
ting, by reason of a long range of vision, a
cloud no bigger than a man's hand tar away on
the horizon. It was a sagacious student of
human nature who made the sententious com?
ment, "Methinks the lady doth protest too
much." Not that I do not believe the Berliners
are not quite genuine in their protestations:
but then I do not greatly like the manner of
these protestations. Alexander the Great was
a professed fighting man, who, when he had
conquered everything that there apparently
! waa to conquer, (not including himself,) sat
and wept because there were no more worlds
to conquer. The Germans, fighting men only
under compulsion and professed people of
peace, having conquered, everything that has
stood up against them, do not, like Alexan?
der, blubber for mote antagonists, but rub
their bands in self-conglatuiatlon that as
adversaries are reduced to an impos?
sibility, there ls a peaceful future before the
Germr Tapire. Here is a transaction of an
loscripi. on one of-the triumphal pillars-:
"Who shall fight with the Germans now* there?
fore we/ shall have long peace." There is a
?truculent Intolerance here of anything sup?
posed caoaTjle ot claiming an equality of fight?
ing power with the Germans, which I submit
is not the proper basis on which to rest the
conviction of a long peace. It ls exactly paral?
lel in conception, although it does not go so
far ?s the peace-recipe which the Romans
under Agricola administered to ancient Cale?
donia, a prescription which Tacitus makes
plain-spoken old Galgncus tabulate In the pithy
phase, "Solitudinem faciunt pacem appellant."
And I make bold to assert that the reasoning
of the inscription ls the reasoning in the
hearts and on the lips ofmostGermaus to-day.
It ls not a healthy line of. reasoning, since Its
obvious converse is "Ii any State presumes to
think itself equal to Germany In military
strength, then we shall Immediately war." I
do not say that the Germans have let their
reasoning faculties carry them specifically to
the realization, tar less the approval, of this
converse position; but I do not see how either
they or any one else can refuse to recognise its
FEELING IK THE ARMT.
I have mingled much with the soldiery
during the last few days, and gladly testify to
their anxiety for no more fighting in their
generation. They are eagerto tell of war in?
cidents, of long marching, orlurdshlps, of hot
fighting and ot heavy losses-the severity- ot
the loss always comes asa clenching argu?
ment to the^iardness of th? fighting. There
ls no personal brag, but natural laudation of
the valor shown by the battalion and company
to which the narrator belongs. But they are
not men of blood. There ls no flippant gloat?
ing over scenes of butchery; no callous talk
how many "Red Breeches" Hans skewered on
his bayonet, or Henrich spit ted on his lance
point; none ot that restless lust for warfare
which a war is so prone to stimulate in a pro?
fessional soldiery. They have fought the fight;
they huve got their medal?; they are tull ot
war stories, the budget ol which for years to
come they will unfold in the cottage porch, or
the chimney corner of the smithy;
and although prepared to do as they
are told, whether to work all night
unpacking a. baggage-train, or to march
against the martial Inhabitants of Kum
schntka, they . are very anxious to
get back into civil life; and, having done their
best tor the Fatherland, now do something for
themselves. But there is a perceptibly differ- !
ent tone among the civilians. In the bravery
ol the soldiery, they themselves are vicarious?
ly brave. Little Ententuss, the cigar-seller's
cad, who, two years ago, was heartily glad
when the military surgeon certified him unfit
for service on account of physical defects,
watched the "ladybirds" tramping past with
their sturdy swing, throws out lils pigeon
breast, tries to point those web-toes of his, and
looks on the foreigner with a haughty sniff of
contemptuous puissance. The "ladybirds" are
Germans; he, Entenfups, is a German; the
"ladybirds" are mighty men of valor; he, En
tenluss, and every other German, ar? mighty
men of valor, striking awe and terror into
the souls of alien-, or ready, in default
of the required humility, to carry fire and
sword into allen Iauu. Well, ' Entenfuas
may be a little of a Bobadil; but look
at the other sten of the times. I have seen
women wearing mourning for their dead, Blain
in the war. waving their handkerchiefs in
greeting ol'' the victors left alive. I heard a
father bereaved ol' two boys In the war, not
decently proud or cheerfully resigned, but
absolutely exultant over his sacrifices for the
Fatherland, assuming a complacent self-impor?
tance, a Bmug taproom cockiness over the
magnitude of his loss, Jost as old Mrs. Sedley
in Vanity Fair waa proud j that her spouse had
failed for '"Oh, ever so many thousands,my
dear." AU this is bad. It is not a great deaf,
to be sure, and one may be thought nypercrit
ical in noticing lt,'but these small things are
dangerous dlgns, small they are, tor they are
the beginning of rottenness. Germany has a
great future before her, with wisdom and |
1 moderation, not alone ot her government,
hilt on the part of her people. It would be
false friendship not to j own that that fu?
ture-[ls beset with many trials and temp?
tations. Her real unity if yet to be achieved.
Begun in and through, 10 not by war, it has'
still to stand the far more trying test of peace.
And this danger must be noted, that If inter?
nal difficulties and hitches in actual, as distirj* |
guished from nominal, unification occur, the
temptation is ever present to resort to the in?
strument for overcoming them that originally
wrought the unity. There is no State in Eu?
rope to-day the futuro of which is linked BO
closely with the lives of men whose number
you might.reckon on the fingers of one hand.
A stroke of apoplexy might unsettle in an
hour everything that has already been settled,
and crush the hope of the lu ture'into dust and
ashes. Never have Interests so 'jigantic been
concentrated under one fiat blue cap with a
yellow band. ^ . . .
The Chassepot to succeed the Needle? j
Gun-Bronze for Big Oana.
[Berlin Correspondence ot New York World.]
We are so accustomed to associate with the
German, or at all events the Prussian, army
the idea of the needle-gun, that lt is next to
impossible to Imagine eil her without the
other. The needle-gun has been the specialty
of the Prussian soldiery? the supposed talis?
man which led it to victory. In 1964 lt waa
the needle-gun which, iii the oplnlon'ofthe
Danes, wrought their defeat ; In 1866 the Aus?
trians confessed themselves beaten, not by
superior organization, valor or strategy, but
by the magic' spell concealed In the needle
gun. The Prussians themselves were perfect?
ly In love* with their national weapon, and
professed to despise the attempts of other na?
tions to come up to their perfection. What|
was the Enfield or* the Snider; what was the
Martini Henry, and what finally the much
vaunted chassepot in comparison, with the
needle-gun ? Parallels between the latter
two rifles have been drawn continually during
the war, both by Prussian military Journalists
and obsequious foreign special correspondents
attached to the Prussian army, They ended
in every instance In a final eulogy on the nee
dle-giu. The chassepot was asserted to be
constantly suffering some breakage; lt became
foul after a few rounds; it waa not true In Its
aim. These were the conclusions that our pro
Prussian journalists Invariably arrived at..
Whoever accepted this judgment aa decisive
and fair, will be greatly surprised to Dear that j
at this present moment.the Prussian authori?
ties are. contemplating a general exchange of
the zundnadel for the'chassepot. The ztfhfi
nadei, In fact, ls doomed, tina the choice lies
solely between the' Martini Henry rifle and
the chassepot. The former Is admitted to
be the better, but then lt ls costly, and every
one would have to be bought. Of the chas
sepots, there are 540,000 ready , to hand.
Bavaria has come to a decisi?n already.
Though it will not finally cast away Its
old Werder rifle, lt has resolved to
serve out 65,000 chasaepots, which form.
Its share of the common booty, to the bulk of
tts line troops. In Prussia the co-existence of
two different guns Is not deemed advisable,
and a great number ot rifles will, therefore
ii ave to be newly fabricated. Still the 540,000
cha'ssepots are an argument in favor of that j
weapon. Its greatest recommendations are
ita greater handiness and lightness, wide
range and the small bore. A soldier can carry,
about with him a far greater number of car?
tridges than for the needle gun-almost as
many again. The French chasaepots are to be
somewhat altered for use, and ? great quanti?
ty have to be newly manufactured. It ls be?
lieved that this work will bo Intrusted to Hr.
Krupp, of cast-steel cannon celebrity, and lt is
to serve aa a set-off tor the?loss he will suffer
by the Introduction of bronze field guns. The
rumor of a new Kruppjjatabllshment being
erected at Essen has own, -"currant there for
some weeks, and the proprietor *ls said to be
hiring hands to tb i number of several thous?
Another change proposed, and that defi?
nitely decided upon, ls the- reintroduction of]
bronze guns versus cast-steel. The cast-steels
were Intended to constitute a specialty of the
Prussian army as distinctive as the needle
gun. Like that, they were credited with
magic-powers. This belief was founded only
on prejudice, and the late war has taught the
military authorities that bronze answers the
purpose in many cases just as well, which',
considering Ita far greater cheapness, decides
the question In its favor. Bronze ls again to
become the staple material of Prussian gun
foundries. The small rifled four-pounders and
the abort twenty-four-pounders, ot which we
have heard so much during the war-both the
favorite field guns of the Prussians, and most
in use by their batteries-are to be exclusively
bronze. The new twenty-one centimetre mor?
tars, projecting shells of 160 and 200 pounds, a
product of the late war, are lo be cast of the
same metal. Almost all the reserve guns
manufactured during the war'and used for the
reserve batteries were bronze, and have an?
It seems likely that the much despised mit?
railleur will become an established institu?
tion in the Prussian army, as It Is in the Ba?
varian. The variety proposed for German use
bears the name of Montlgny. It Is being now
tested by the authorities. Each gun requires
six men to serve it and six horses to draw lt.
It fires thirty-seven rounds at ? time. The
cartridge employed ls that originally intended
for the Werder rifle, having a diameter bf only
five-twelfths of an inch and weighing 333
grains, viz : Fifty-five grains of powder, and
278 of metal. The entire machine, with an j
ammunition cart attached and men and all,
weighs 3115 pounds. The gun has been tried
at distances of lrom 400 to 1500 paces (two feet j
each,) and the result goes to prove that at
1500 paces lt may be employed with excell?nt
effect, though it ls not considered safe to use
it at greater distances. The aim proved re?
markably true, and this ls believed to have
settled the question In favor bf the mitrail?
leur, the range of which exceeds the widest
of auy infantry gun by 300 paces, and the usual
and most effective range of the same gun by
700 paces. On the other hand, there ls no
doubt that the mitrailleur cannot stand
againat artillery firing shrapnel shells. It will
therefore be treated not as an artillery gun,
but as an Infantry weapon.
Of less Important changes we may add that
the leather kepis of the landwehr are to be
done away with and replaced by helmets hav
lng a cross In front as a distinctive mark. It
bas been remarked that where landwehr and
line troops taught aide by side, thc fire of the
French was invariably concentrated on the
former, supposed to be the less organized and
efficient men. The French considered the
landwehr as on apar with their national guard,
and could easily make them out by their dis?
tinguishing head gear. That the Prussian cut
of uniform, as well as-the Prussian scale of
payment will be adopted in Bavaria, ls already
known. _ .

AN OLD CONTROVERSY, REVIVED. .
Never waa a secret so well preserved as that
respecting the authorship of "The Letters.of
Junius." It should be premised for the bene?
fit of those who have not read up the- subject,
that these famous - letters, bearing the signa?
ture. "Jualus," were published lu a London
newspaper, called the Public Advertiser. The
first of them appeared on the 21st of January,
1769, and the last on the 21st of January, 1772.
They attacked with great severity the ministe*
rial measures of the Duke of Grafton and hts
colleagues, on account of their arbitrary high
Tory tendencies. There were sixty-nine
letters in all; of whioh . twenty-one
were. addressed to the printer ot the Pub?
lic Advertiser, eleven to the- Duke or
Grafton, five to Slr William Draper, three to
Lord Chief Justice Mansfield, and the rest to
a variety of persons. They are remarkable
for the elegance of their language, the force
of their arguments, the bitterness of their
reproaches, the keenness of their satire, the
extensive information they display, their
fearless tone and ttfeir attachment to the
Seat principles of the Constitution of Eng
ld. Tn a word,' they must have been the.
production of a profound scholar and ot an
enlightened statesman. Yet; with all their
merit, they might have passed into, the
category of works known only to the
learned but for the impenetrable - mystery
In which they- have been shrouded. The
name of the author (or authors of them, it
there were more than one,) though known
to several persons, was never divulged. lilt
had been, lt would probably have subjected the
owner of lt to. the vindictive hatred of the
arbitrary ministers of George the Third, who
would doubtless have found some pretext for
crushing him. But all efforts to discover the
author pr?ved unavailing. ' The secret was
rigidly kept, and lt died with those who knew
lt. There have been countless efforts made to
discover it, but though some very plausible
theories have been advanced, ana supported
by what appears to-be fair evidence, nothing
certain has come out of all this controversy
The negative evidence, Indeed, is undeni?
ably strong, and when it ls' fairly weighed
against the positive, the impartial inquirer
will find himself in the condition of the don?
key between two loads of hoy. Dr. Alllbone,
in his Dictionary of Authors (title "Junius")
gives a list of forty-two persons to whom the
authorship of theBe celebrated letters bas been
ascribed.' '. The weight of testimony has been
considered to preponderate In favor of Sxr
Philip Francis, a dissolute man and a rancor?
ous politician,who reviled friend ami foe alike,
with the exception of the. profligate John
Wilkes, another notorious politician ot that
day, with whom "Junius" seems to have been
on the best ot terms. Among other proofs
adduced in favor ot Francis has been the
evidence of handwriting, and the pro?
fessional expert has been called in to
decide the question. There has been no lack
of materials of this description to operate upon.
In the Chatham Correspondence there are
many words and sentences in the known hand?
writing of Francis, and they? closely resemble
some of those in the manuscripts ol "Junius."
But Francis was the hired amanuensis of Lord
Chatham tor more than a year, and therefore
wrote many things of'which he was- not the
anthor. He was also a servile tool ot Calcraft,
Wood, Ellis, and other prominent politicians,
and played "Jackal" to them. The first formal
Introduction of the professional expert Into
the controversy arose In this manner :
Tn 1870 or 1771, when Junius was In
.the fullness of his fame, and Francis
was at Bath, a Hiss Giles (afterwards
wards Mrs. King) received a copy of verses
.(about, sixteen lines,) accompanied by an
'anonymous note, both of which came* as she
believed^ from Franois. Between forty-and'
fifty years afterwards,' when his name was
publicly associated with Junius, she pro?
duced these documents, and the resemblance
of the anonymous note to the 'handwriting
of Junius (specimens of which had been
lithographed by Woodfall, the original pub?
lisher of the Letters,) Induced "her brother to
get lt lithographed for private circulation.
It attracted some temporary attention, but
lt was soon forgotten, and remained . o until
1868, when the documents came into the pos?
session of the Hon. Edward Twlstletoa, who
submitted tba note to- Hr:* Nethercllif, an
expert. That gentleman at once declared
that lt was in the handwriting of Francis. Mr.
Twlsttetoa then submitted the verses to
another' expert, a French gentleman, named
Chabot, who reported that they were not, and
could not have been, written by Francis'. The
history of this investigation h as .lust been pub?
lished In Lond o n, and it reopens the doubt about
Francis being the real author of Junius. He
was never suspected by his contemporaries of
being so. He was first put forward as such in
1813, by Mr. Taylor, after which Francis "play?
ed Junius" to everybody. But Pitt had long
previously told Lord Aberdeen (the late Pre?
mier of England) that bo.th he and als father
(Lord Chatham) knew who the author w.\s,
and that lt was not Francis.
The Bight Hon. Thomas Grenville told his
nieces, as a matter bl persoual knowledge,
that not one of the persons who had beeb
mentioned as Junius was that writer. Soon
after the publication of the Diary of a Lady of
Quality-a short time ago-Lady Grenville
sent word to the editor, who had mentioned
the subject therein, that Lord Grenville had
told her he knew who wrote the Junlus letters,
and that it was not Francis. But the strongest
evidence against Francis ls that he did not
possess learning and ability sufficient to ena?
ble him to write the letters. But why the
mystery should still be maintained, now that
a century has elapsed, and all the parties con?
cerned have long sluce died off, is inexpli?
cable. . ._
