The Paris correspond eu co of tho Lon?
don Daily Ntw? niak?s ? report almost
textual of Princo Napoleon's recent
speech on -til? Senat us Consullum. We
regard the speech au able one, and ito
great length only precludes as from giv?
ing it entire, "Wo judge fhst by this re?
markable d?claration of his ideas and
policy, tho Prince puta himself forward
aa the champion of liberalism in France,

tracte: j '~
"Do not be deceived, Messieurs; this
experiment, I tell yon, is one which must
be allowed td succeed. Remember that
although liberty maj be momentarily
eclipsed, it is the light to which,all civil?
ized nations tend; and I hope X may cl uss
-France among civilized nations. Yon
cannot put ont this light; and therefore
the wisest, the most practical thing for
?roa to do is make up your minds, to live
n ito beams.' Those who oppose the
present reforms in principle i consider
no positive enemies of the Government;
bat those who talk about an 'experi?
ment' are almost as dangerous os the
others. To condense my meaning iu a
singlo sentence, I want to see the empire
of authority burn its old ships, so that
they may never be used again; aud then
the liberal empire will be founded. The
art of governing consists, abovo all
things; in knowing how to yield in time
to doliberate public opinion. Yon will
probably think I go too far; but I de?
clare that reforms are now necessary in
every brauch of tho administration. Go?
vernment did much when it initiated a
large measure of commercial reform. I
approve it highly. But everything is
progressing around us; and how can you
expect politics to be stationary? You
must, therefore, strive to put yourselves
at the head of the movement, instead of
impeding it. "What would you think of
a philosopher who, because he is old and
Worn out, should say: I have explored
the lin?ts of science, and left nothing to
future generations to .discover? I have
ho hesitation in saying that I find this
doctrine of political progress in the Im?
perial traditions. Tue constitution of
1815 is very different from that of the
"year VLTX It has been my pleasure, ns
well aa my duty, to study the history of
Napoleon I. I may safely affirm that
after his return from the Isle of Elba ho
was a thorough convert to constitutional
principles. I do not say how the conver?
sion was brought about; I do not deny
that, owing to his personal character and
habits, and the very nature of his
genius, he may havo been prone to adopt
old practices; bub I maintain that his
reason was convinced that constitutional
government was necessary. Have not
those great parliamentary doctrinarians,
Benjamin Constant and Sismondi, and,
later, M. Thiers, admitted that tho con?
stitution of 1815 was a groat improve?
ment? The examples of 1811 and 1830
have been referred to for the purpose of
deducing this argument. You want to
repeat an experiment which has twice
failed. As well urge that because a man
had twice tried curative waters without
any benefit he should never take them
a third time. There aro essential dif?
ferences between the epochs. It is pain?
ful to me to speak of 1811; but I may
observe in passing that the radical vico
of the constitution of that year was, that
it was imposed by tho foreigner. The
white flag was an emblem of shame for
France. She never would be reconciled
to it; and she was quite right. As to the
regime of 1830, it is perhaps open to
somo reproach as to the way in which the
constitutional system was acted upon.
It is not for me to go into that-to do so
would be improper in my position. But
if I tarn over the debatos of- the time of
the coallition (1839) I find the most inti?
mate friends of tho Government com?
plaining that the crown exercised too
much personal power. The radical vico
of 1830 was the pays legal. Tho Govern?
ment was very parliamentary, but it was
not a trae representative Government,
for it represented only the 200,000 elect?
ors who had political rights. Now we
have 10,000,000 of electors; there is the
difference. Everything was in the hands
of the bourgeoisie-places, public func?
tions, influence, tariffs, and even loans.
One fine day tho citizens said to them?
selves, we will enter the banquetiug-ball
of these contented bourgeois. They did
so, and threw all they found there out of
the window. It was a catastrophe sure
to como ono day. I am sometimes told
that constitutional government is a sus?
picious thing, because imported from
England; and that, inasmuch as iu Eng?
in nd there is an aristocracy and no Pre?
tender. English institutions are not tit
for ns. I attach slight importance, in?
deed, to this objection. I am nearly thc
youngest member of this Chamber, and
yet I do not expect to see the day when
there will be no rival dynasties and no
hostile parties. The country cannot
afford to wait for such a remote period
for its Uberties. The argument turns in
a vicious circle. You "will ruin pretend?
ers by granting liberty, but give them a
chanoe if you withhold it. Moreover, it
is a mistake to say that liberty is an
English production. The essential forms
of liberty are almost everywhere the
same, from America to Prussia and
Austria. Liberty is cosmopolitan, it is
human, it is like the beautiful ia its
nuity. (Sensation.) Thero may bo dif?
ferences, arising from climate, race,
origin, historical antecedents and reli?
gion. But the modifications produced
by these influences nro inconsiderable.
When von seriously intend to practico
political liberty you will do pretty much
what all other free peoples have done
aud are doing. Tuc example I just now
cited is palpable. WM Napoleon a

liberty is desirable; bat we must not be

at once. I. am qnite of- this opinioa.
We mast proceed gradually, but we must
not- lose time in .achieving what is press?
ing and necessary. This a matter of de?
gree, not of principle. --.
"I am not going to give you a lecture
on ministerial responsibility. The Em?
peror's responsibility is something vague
and superior, high up in clouds and mist.
I will not attempt to define it. Abler
men than I hare renounced the task. As
I have already said, his responsibility
i may show itself at a- given moment by
invoking a plebiscilum. Bat, besides
this, the Emperor's responsibility is
generous. I quite understand the feel?
ing which leads him to cling to this re?
sponsibility. ' It ?B something superb,
but not very palpable, and not very use?
ful. It is courageous in h ' m to repudi?
ate the fiction that a sovereign is not re?
sponsible; and the logical French poople
(too logical, perhaps,) do not object,
"but his responsibility does not prevent
the secondary responsibility of ministers.
Now, Artic!" H does not tell us to whom
ministers : J responsible. They ought
to be responsible to the Chambers.
"Let me now speak of the Jiiatus in the
Senate. I wish to be as respectful as
possible to my colleagues, but I must
speak tho truth. I should like to see
tue Senate a second chamber, with full
gowers. I do not think a single churn?
er a good thing. I dread a convention
face to face with a Cosar. But I desire
to see the Senate stripped of its constitu?
ent power. It is a power which you are
not likely to use; bat if yon do, God
help France! It is like a loaded gun
placed in a corner, whioh should not be
there, for fear a bad use should be made
of it. Tho constituent power ought to
belong jointly to the Emperor, tho Se?
nate, and the Corps Legislad/. I am not
a lawyer, but I see clearly enough that
tbere is no rational ground for the subtle
distinctions botween a Senatus Consullum
and a law. It is all nonsense. What can
be more ridiculous than the fact that the
salary of a councillor of state could not
be raised without a Senatus Consullum,
while matters of the highest moment mn^
be enacted by that humbler thing a law.
A constitntion should be a very simple
thing. It is ridiculous to attempt to co?
dify everything, and enclose a peoplo in
a circle ;of Popilius. What we are now
doing is no doubt important; but thc
peoplo only jndgo a constitution by its
results. You may have a very good con?
stitution'with very bad government; and
reciprocally, a very good government
with a very bad constitution. The me?
chanism of tho constitution is no doubt
important, but it is not the principal
thing. I entirely adopt tho amondmenl
of my friend M. Bonjeau, who will sup?
port it more ably than I can do. I should
like to see tho article of the constitution
which authorizes the Emperor to preside
in the S?pate repealed. I will not dwel
on the subject. I only say, that, al
though no doubt it is a great honor tc
take thc chair in this assembly, tho Em
poror wonld not be in his proper place
there, and tho Senate could not debate
with proper independence in his pre
sence. It is, moreover, a monstroui
thing, according to the present constitu
tion, that daring a prorogation of th?
Corps L?gislatif, which may last for si:
months, tho Senate, exclusively appoint
ed by tho Emperor, may act legislatively
in the interim, and oven vote the budget
This power is frightful. I know wei
enongn that with the present sovereigi
there is no fear that the power will bi
used; but tho possibility should no
exist. It is, however, most unfortunat<
j that an opinion prevails in certain qunr
ters that by meaus of the Senato all th
I reforms now professed to be given ma;
i be nullified. That, I am sure, Alessieurs
is not your intention. But it isa pit;
that the public should have an exons
for thinking so. Tho third hiatus ti
which I come is the absence of a claus
abolishing tho Senate's exclusive powe
to' discuss' "the constitution. I entirel;
agree with ono of my colleagues who ha
brought forward by way of amendmen
a proposal to abolish this most absur
law. The constitution was never so mud
discussed, whether by the Corps Legislo
ti/ or the press, as since the Senate prc
tended to reserve tho monopoly of sue
high matters to themselves. The intei
pollations of the HG deputies was a mos
flagrant violation of the constitution
and yet thc Government was constraine
to act upon it. The press also Las sc
the Senate's law at naught. It bas di:
cussed the constitntion according to il
right and its duty; for indifference i
matters political is death to the country

LUNATIC ASYLUM, September 23.
EDITOR OF Pnoxix: The inmates of
this institution were most agreeably sur?
prised last evening by a serenade from
the military baud of this post. Could
they have witnessed the happy influence
of their music upon those who listened,
it would have amply recompensed them
for their humano ello vt to contribute to
the pleasure and happiness of the af?

I desire to make this public r?cognition

A negro man, named William Jones,
abused a white man, named Baker, in
Columbia County, Ga., a few days ago,
and also drew a weapon upon him, when
the latter shot him through the head. A

then commenced an indiscriminate firing
upon Mr. Baker, who succeeded in es?
caping; when the infuriated darkies went
to his homo and threatened to burn it,
but were prevented by a courageous co?

A Sad TR1?.
AW York World publishes the

seema tof vouch for the truth
Mrs. Sickles was). lovely in per?

Such characters; are, ',?ptj

te has led the world to believe,
her sensibilities would uut have remained
so 'acute that site died in less 'than two
years of a broken heart. She was weak
and cowardly, I admit. Alas! these de?
fects would haye.made her sacred in tho

dorl? his utmost to shield her from evil.
Let me depict the few last hours in ?he
life of this injured woman. Stung, it may
be, by an irresponsible feeling of re?
morse, he pretends in the eyes of the
world to have restored her to favor. I
will not discuss the propriety of this
kind of klopstock sentiment. I speak of
the fsct. She was placed in a handsome
bouse, with the ordinary appliances of
wealth. Of the secret history of tho two
at this time nothing need be said. She
was ruined in character, broken in
health, utterly lost to the world as only
a woman can be lost-left without hope,
without society and without sympathy,
except from the few who were related to
her, and who loved and pitied her. She
had long intervals of nervous prostra?
tion, when she would lie for hours like a
dying person. Sho sat day after day, head
leaning upon her wasted baud, and even
listless, seeing and caring for little in a
world whose sun-shino to her had been
so darkly eclipsed. She sighed faintly,
but said little or nothing. She was a
sad 'wreck. She knew she was dying,
and expressed no thought or interest in
anything but her absent daughter. One
day she turned suddenly to a young
friend and asked: "Do you think rue a
guilty woman?"' and without waiting for
an answer, she went on, "I wish to
speak now while I can. I was so shock?
ed aud terrified at that horrible time that
I did not know what I said. But I am
not guilty of any siu. Mr. Sickles was
very violent-I was afraid of him-he
brought me a paper, which he said I
must sign-he said he should be huug if
I did not sign it. I never read one word
of that paper; I did uot know one word
written in it. I put my name where he
told me, and to save bis life."
She was sinking rapidly, and was car?
ried to her bed from a loug fainting turn.
As she opened her eyes, reviviug slowly,
they fell upon the face of Daniel E.
Sickles, painted and framed, hanging
before her. Lifting her pale baud, she
said: "Take it away."
Those about her remonstrated; but the
second and the third time she murmured,
"Take it away."
The picture was removed. "Now place
my daughter's face there," sho said, with
a sad smile. This was doue, and she
gazed with a longing, wistful look upon
tho young face, and sighed heavily. The
poor weary eyes closed, and she was gone
