LETTER FROM LONDON.
[Special Correspondence of the Penny Press.]
LONDON, August 17, 1859.
Editors Fkkny Presii: Upon tho arrival of
this mail you will learn that the groat fete of
Napoleon has passed, the triumplis of tbe
French, army celebrated, and the peace of
Villafranca joyoualy acknowledged by all
I happened to bo in Paris at the timo of
this fete. A largo number of Ainericians hml
here congregated; five huodred nnd twenty
thousand foreigners aro reported ly tho po
lice to have entered Paris. Stif;h u number
has, perhaps, never beforu met. at that. lar.e.
The hotelB were oil full, aud tho prlues f'-v
every tning were xoroitaut.
Sunday, the U'lh of AutiU'st, 1859, is a day
long to be remembered by thoM who spHnt
it iu Paris, At a very early hour the people
wore about, nn.l preparing for the day. A
great many staid up all night in order to se
cure sents for the morrow . Those were of
the poorer class; those who could afl'orcl it
rented gents, and some at a very high prico.
Many of these, thinking their seats to bo
safe, made no immediate hu rry, so that when
they woro ready it was fount itn possible to
wndo through tho mass f human beings,
aud thus get to them; consequently their
money and their seats wer s lost. J know of
more than one who lost his tnt by boingslow
to reach it. At eight o'clock it seeded as if
every body was out of doors and on tiio alert.
At ten, t,he procession being formed, began to
A vast amphitheater had. been erected in
the Place Vendome, which was decorated in
the most tasteful manner. On the western
sido an immense tribune bad been erected,
forming a large drnwiiig-roonri for the accom
modation of the Empress, the Pri.a"e Impe
rial and the members, of their .Majesties'
household. This wa decor atod with tri
colorcd tlags, golden inscriptions arid silk
velvet trimmings, gold lacii, &c. It was
Tho Emperor loft the Palace of tho Tui
lories at about half-past eight, accompanied
by a brilliant staff of Marshals, Go.eruls nnd
other oflicers. As ho entered tL' Place
Vendome, at the head of tie protest uon, he
was most warmly cheered by the people.
Here were assembled the Kmp.re8s,the l'rince
Imperial, the Princess Matt ide and several
other members of the impr rinl househo Id.
Her Majesty was dressed in pure white, wii'h
bonnet and sun-shade of th satno color, tho
former being ornamented with tri-colored
feathers and n, black ma ntolet. Sho pre
sented a most truly beauti ful appearance, a
most perfect realization of imperial grace and
dignity. The Emperor was attired in tho
uniform of a General, wenriug on his breast
the red ribbon of tho L?giou of Honor, a
military medal and several other decorations.
Ho rode a little in front of his officers, alone,
and with head uncovered, bowing to tho
masses around him.
As he entered the place- he advanced to the
Imperial Tribune, salutin g tbe Empress first,
and then taking a sent a li ttle in front of and
juBt below her, surrounded by his suito. Here
he received tae troops as t.ney passed by. .to
ward the end of tbe procession he again joined
in with them and rode to t.he palace. I should
like to give you a general description of the
Boulevards, the monuments and triumphal
arches erected, and the (;rand display of flags,
&e. It was truly a grand sight. Bat to me,
It was aooompanied with sad thoughts. The
pomp and show nnd splendor was an object of
extrome grandeur; but my mind was carried
far away, and I thought, and pitied the widows
and orphans of tbe tens of thousands who fell
at Snllerlno and magenta, uouid tno monarcn
himselfhave witnessed tnctr sorrows, his grand
triumphal entree might, perhaps, have been ao
oompanied by at least a thought Or feeling
compassion. The day was won the victory
was his, but at what a oost has it been pur
chased? The soldiers presented anything but a pleas
ant appearanoe. Their coarse dirty drees,
swaggering gait and profane language beto
kened a low and villianous character. The
Zouaves seem to be tho favorites of the people.
And suoh a low set of out-throats I never saw.
A leading journal truly says of them: "They
certainly are the most picturesque sot of despe
radoes that ever drew trigger, at least in any
modern army." I notioed that the regular
soldiers passed by almost unheeded; but these
Zouaves as they paaed were received with
almost ungovernable bursts of applause. What
a thought! these, the criminals of their own
eountry, now the favorites of Prance. And
here, strange as it may stem, in enlightened
France, the crescent waved above tae beads
t,ie people, ana received by mem, witn raptures
0f applause. ,
T.ie tete lasted toree aays. ine ousidous

News and Gossip.
A charaoteristio anecdote of English
bombast relates to an occurrence in Paris, on
August 14, while the army of Italy was pass
ing throuh the Boulevards: "Imagine four
miles of side-walk, thirty feet wide twenty-
fire at least packed solid with people, and
four miles of houses crowded, in every window
and on roof with spectators, and the side-walks
bordered with a compact line of National
Guards the whole way, and the entrance to
every side street blocked by a oompany of
oavalry, on splendid steeds, with brazen hel
mets Hashing in the sun, ana every pome oi
metal on all the troops polished to the last de
gree of brightness. Then imagine my amuso
ment when I remarked to an Englishman,
whom I was pressing, that this display, both
in extent and magnifioenoe, surpassed all
my experience, nnd he replied, 'You should
have seen the funeral of the Duke of Welling
ton, sir. This is noihimj to it.' "
KSf A correspondent of the Loudon Pott
tells of a Japanese girl, who, in spite of the
laws prohibiting emigration, left by stealth
for Shanghai, under the persunsiou of a
Frenchman. The owners of the Bteomersent
her back to Japan. On arriving, tho vessel
was boarded at once by a couple of officials,
who affected to ignoro her presence until all
the formalities were completed, and then
took lier into custody. The poor thing
struecled against her fate in vnio. She was
landed, and, as we are informed, condemned
to death, toirethcr with all her relatives, aud
some officer or officers who ought to have
prevented her escapo.

A Cuts Darkey. About twelve days ago a
black man attempted to escape from the prison
at Sing Sing by a contrivance ingeniously
planned but unskillfully exeouted. He ob
tained a piece ol plank, through whioh he cut
a hole large enough to pass his head. Over
the hole he nailed strips of boon-iron, so as to
form a shield like a hamlet. Then he tarred
the plank and strewed the whole with straw
and shavings, to that when floating on the
water it would have the appearance of a
bundle of rubbish. Having prepared these
things, the convict launched his flotilla and
succeeded in ensconoine himself under the
plank, by which he was buoyed up. He soon
passed tae line ot guards stationed on tho
river, and was making good progress toward
the month of the Croton, when bis craft at
tracted tbe attention of some boys swimming,
who thought it strange to see a bundle of
straw floating against the tide. One of them
laid his band on the straw, and was surprised
when the man underneath exolaimed, "Go
awayl go away! or I'll drown you!" Of
oourse the alarm was given, and the convict
soon returned to the prison, very much to the
surprise ot the omoers, who bad not yet
"oounted him out." Last Monday he suc
ceeded in again eluding tbe officers, and has
not yet boen recaptured, although the watch
has been set every night since, the keepers
apparently thinking him inside the guard.
Death op as Old Hebo. Mr. Win. Owney,
of Southampton County, Va., died at his resi
dence in that county on tho 2St.h ultimo, llo
had attained the ae of one hundred years,
five months and eleven days, having beeu
born in tne year 17SS. Boutfininpton was
his native county. Ho was a soldier in tho
Revolutionary war, and was in many of tho
mo9t important, engagements Against the
British, among which was the battle of
Brand vwino, and alw that which occurred
at this city, with tho history of which our
readers aro faniilliar. A most remarkable
circumstance in the life of Mr. Owney was.
to the day of his death, he had never known
what sickness was, and having never tasted
medicine, insisted to the last upon dying a
nntwttl nmth, and refused everything in the
shape of physic which was offered him.
The only physical pain of any consequence
thathehad ever endured was from tho wound
of a musket ball, received at the battle of
Femalr Majorities ' is Cities, Males
preponderate in the country, females in
cities. This is occaxioned by the influx of
women in search of employment which they
eon not find in the country. In the citv of
Brooklyn, in the yenr lSS'i, the excess of
females wns ton thousand nine hundred aud
ninety-two: in New York, twenty-three
thousand nine hundred and thirty-two. In
1850, the excess was seven thousand three
hundred nnd thirty-five, so that tho proba
ble excess at present is near thirty thousand.
In 1830, the excess in Boston was five thou
sand three hundred and thirty -throe, and in
Philadelphia, fifteen thousand eight hundred
and eighty. Tbe proportion is about equal,
the excess being near tour per cent. 01 the
entire population in all but Brooklyn, which
is about live per cent.
Dbath frou a Fly-mtk. A letter from
Casaol in the Journal de Frankfort mentions
tbe Sudden death of M. Habicht, a Protestant
minister of that town, from tho puncture of a
fly. The wound was inflicted near the corner
of his eye. A tumor formed, which 'was fol
lowed by erysipelas, and speedily caused death.
It is presumed that the fly had been feeding on
some dead oareass in a stato of decomposition,
and had imbibed a poisonous virus, which had
entered the wound.
Murder and Ma bulbs. Two brothers by

Rotary Steam-Enoine. These engines which
some years ago made so prominent a feature
in tho Patent Office Reports, have been nearly
abandoned by inventors, not from want of ap
preciation of the advantages of a compact
light, simple machine, having a direct rotary
rather than reciprocating motion, but from the
supooBed impossibility of constructing the
working parts in a form which would admit of
their being packed steam-tig nt, without occa
sioning too much friction. With the exception
of this defect, most of the hundreds of patents
in this oountry and Europe are perfect in prin
With a view to obviate this difficulty, 1
