There were high old imperial times

THE PARIS EXHIBITION.
THE OPENING CEREMONIES.
(Special Correspondence London Times.)
PARIS, April 1, 1867.
The nominal opening of what is
still for the greater part an'almost no
minal exhibition took place to-day-
There was no, ceremony or pageant of
any tuna; no addresses, no replies; no
omcitti costumes. Tho Emperor and
BunprcBs merely visited the building,
walked aronnd the most presentable
parts of it, spoke a few words to the
representatives of the various foreign
coin missions, whe-wore evening dress

ing would not ba made a -rreat nnblia
ceremony, and tha koowledgo of this
fact has told most seriously on the sale
of season tickets. Up to the last it
was believed that M. Play would yiold,
and allow foreign countries and France
itself a little grace in poiat of timo to
get themselves into tolerable shane.-
Nat until Friday last was it ftr an in
start't , believed that the buidiag was
really meant to one to day, and when
the fiat was given out on Saturday it
produced only .the sort of indifference
induced by the absolute despair cf be
ing ready. With tha exception of Rus
sia, England, Sweden, and perhaps,
also Denmark, absolutely none wero
prepared. By far tba greater pait af
the French side was not onlv unfurn
ished, but even unfinished. Austria
and Prussia were quite' as lad. Italy
had only junt got her packing cases in.
while Sbain, Portugal, Turkey, and a
mass oi smaller States. hav
scarcely yet got n case into the whole
building at all. With such awful gaps
in the display, it was considered an to
the very last that a postponement of at
least afortuightwotld beallowedbnt tho
Imperial commissioners woro firm, and
on Saturday it wss known that the
Dunaing, finished or unfinished, would
he opened to the public to-day. Onen-
ad therefore, it has been, thoagh, to do
tne publio justioe, they have by.no
means sought to avail themsolves of
tha privilego so unexpectedly oflWod
to them; for it is perfectly wall known
in Paris that what will really be in
time one of tha best and most vacied
collections aver brought! together can
not possibly ba arranged so as to bo
worth inspection for nearly a month to
oome. The positivo annoucsment.
therefore, that tha opening to tha pub-
I a a ...
no would really be made this day was
received with not a little eloom bv all
but the Russian, English and seme few
French courts, though of tha latter
only a very few were even tolerably
ready. By fat tha great majority of
the foreign Comaiissioas simply con
tented, themselves with olesing their en
trances and affixing the notice "J?irre

themselves unfinished, bat even the
small number of the goods which had
yet arrived were net nnpacked With
snch a state of things, of course any
thing like a ceremonial was OMt of the
question. Even for tha Emperor snd
Empress themsolves it would have
been impossible to clear fair passage
through tha mass of bales which in
heavy staphs, like piles of rongh deals,
cumber the spaces reserved for most
foreign nations. Sunday was the last
day allowed for work in fact, it was
most decisively announced at first that
no work would bo allowed on that day
at all, as it was to given up entirely to
cleaning tha interior. Of course how.
ever, this rule wus relaxed, and such a
scene of confusion as the'buildinc pre

witnessed even by those most conver
sant with tho herrible uproar and hur
ry of the last day's work in these huge
shops. To make matters worse, not
less than from 50,000 to 60,000 people
had received tickets of admission, so
that in some parts the radial avenues
were literally blocked up with dense
crowds of lonngors, who only eongre-
gatod where tho work was busiest, and
where, therefore, as a matter of course
their prosence was least desired and
most obstructive. It was not till to
wards evening that these thrones
gradually abated, und the swoepersand
laborers got fair chanco to make thinrs
look, if not iiTdisorder, at least in less
disarray than usual. Scaffoldings wore
pulled down, screens broken away
with hammers or beams, benches drag
god out en matse, and tha last efforts
only ceased when darkness came on.
All, however, was in vain, and half the
foreign countries and more than half of
France was still blocked with ladders,
poles, and framework of every shape
and kind. .

that he would mnch ra'ther see the

An Extraordinary Escape.
A Scotch paper tSa Haddington
Courier has an extraerdinary atorv
of the escape of a miner who fell down
the shaft of a coal-pit near Tranent.
An old shaft was made use of to open
a communication with a new pit re
cently sunk. About half way down the
shaft, which was 276 feet deen. a
wooden staging, oomposed of strong
two-inch planks, was built, cemnlatelv
intersecting tha down ahaft, to afford a
flrm rooting to tha miners entering
mesiaesbatl. At the bottom of tha.
down shaft was a considerable accu
mulation of water, as is usual in pits
which have not bean worked for some
time. On tha occasion in question, a
yoang man named Mylne, rather, than
wait for tho comparatively tedious
process of being lowered down by tha
windlkHS, said ha would slide down tha
ropo. Disregarding the advice of his
companions, he got upon the rope, and
they were in another moment horrified
to sea that he had lost hold of it. The
crash of his body against the wooden
staging was heard, and thsy were
making preporations to dosoend for
the mangled remains, when a cry for
assistance was heard coming up from
the very bottom of the pit. The rap
idity of his deoant of 170 feet had pro-
polled him through the two-inch
boards as neatly as if his body had
bean a rifle bullet, and with about as
little injury, for not a bone was bro
ken, and, except a small scratch on
the chin, his person did not bear the
slightest mark of coming In can tact
with anything during tho desoent. fall
ing into tha water at lha bottom, he
aad, on coming to tho surface di-ov-
identially thrown his arras over some
wooden frame work which happened
to be there and had thus been saved
The man whs found bare, and was
conveyed home quite opnseious, and
under medical care will soon be able
to go out of doors. -
The story has oertainly tha appear-
anoe of a fable, yet ifit is possible to
shoot candle through an inch board,
why cannot a man be shot through a
two inch plank? Tha narrative is at
least amusing, 1 and anybody w to
chooses can have the liberty of doubt-
iag that it is wall aithenliosted.

How Marriage Promotes Longevity.
Dr.Stark, of Scotland, has compiled
statistics from the register offleo whrsb
show the doath rate amoang baoha
lors is double that among married
men between tha ages of twenty-five
and thirty; between thirty and thirty
fiiv remain at nearly the same propor
tion ; while on the whole, taking mar
ried and single in the lump, husbands
live twenty years longer than unmar
ried men. This is decidedly consoling.
Twenty years snore life is a matter
worth considering, ' when the pre
scription is ko palatable; tha man who
refuses to accept the extension must
be an ass, indeed. Young man, wo
pat the qutifuon to you qarely: Shall
it be forty years of musty-erusty years
of bachlorbood ef selfishness, sin and
unrest of listless ennui, buttonless
and armless shirts, . drifting upon the
sea of-Iife or shall it ba sixty years,
with connubial felicity, olive branches
and measles.- Statesman.
