The Probable Departure of Louis
Napoleon for the Crimea.
There appears to be no longer any
reason to doubt that the Emperor of (he
French will proceed immediately to
the Crimea. In the Constitntionel ol
Monday, it is stated that his camp
equipage has also been sent off, and
the 1 Oth of May is confidently named
in Paris as the day on w Inch he will
take his departure. The abilities or
Napoleon the III are about to be tried
in a uew Geld. His victories have
hitherto been gained in civil contests ;
it remains to be seen whether he has in
herited the military talents of his house.
Various considerations concur to re
commend the step he is about to take.
His presence in the Crimea teems de
sirable as a means of giving unity to
the opperations ot a campaign carried
on by the armies of at least four inde
pendent nations. As victory will tend
to consolidate the throne, he has every
inducement to urge on the war with
energy ; and at the same time, from all
we can learn, the Emperor is too pro
loundly impressed with the necessity ot
not over-straining the resources of
France to be led astray by success.
What course the Emperor will pur
sue remains perhaps to be decided by
the state in which he will find affairs
when he lands on the Crimea. The
telegraphic accounts of the progress of
ihe bombardment of Sebastopol are
necessarily curt and complete. Ru
mors are afloat, however, to the effect
that no great progress is being made by
the assailants ; that the advantages they
had gained have been purchased at con
siderable loss of lite, and that the
defences still in the hands of the Rus
sians are of the most formidable
strength. If these statements are well
founded, they go far to confirm the
opinion we have more than onoe had
occasion to express, that the Russians
in the Crimea must be beaten in the
field before Sebastopol can be taken.
There is, at lowest calculation, five
hundre pages, royal octavo volume, ot
meaning in the twenty seven words that
follow : "A fool in high station is like
a man on the top of a mountain
everything appears small to him, and
he appears small to everybody.
Gross Outrage Offered to Mr. Wise
in Washington City.
The Union, iu noticing tbe reception
recently given to Mr. Wise iu Washing
ton city, says :
'Mr. YV, spoke from the door of his son-in-law,
Dr. Garnett, in Ninth treet, and
in Ihe presence not only of a great erowd
of citizens, but in the hearing of ladies
end members vf his family. This fact,
which would have restrained even '.ho
most dissolute characters in other days,
did not prevent a gang of ruffians frum
making a number of attempts to insult
the distinguished speaker, and to break
op the meeting. It was easy to see the
actors in this shameless business had
bean sent upon the ground to disgrace
themselves, and if possible, to silence
M.Wise. They resorted to every con
ceivable expedient to fulfill their in
structions, but to no effect. Mr. Wise
rebuked them with much dignity, and,
fter shouting and groaning themselves
hoarse, they fled, like guilty spirits' to
their midnight haunts. Such is the ta
tics of the party that assumes to reform
tbe religion and morals of men.'
"A more graceless set of rowdies lie v
er infested the purlieoua of a great citi
than tbe gang alluded to. And yet, iu
tbe midst of this unprovoked and deli b
erate outrage, no police officer showed
bis face on thegronud. Nothing but the
forbearance of the irieode of Mr. Wise
pnreented a melee. There is not another
city in the Union in which such a scene
would have been tolerated by tbe author
ities, or if by the authorities, submitted
to by tbe people. But this ia a part ol
tbe tactics of tin Ordtr. The officers
ehosen by the majority dare not silence
the 'Americana wbo disgrace America,'
and if these enterprising patriots can
get up conflict with peaceable citizens
some new martyr like Poole may be of
fered as a fit occasion for Sabbath sor
row, and some new pretext furnished for
continued warfare upon the public tran
quility and peace."
In addressings jury upon one occa
sion, the celebrated Mr. Jeffrey found it
necessary to make very free with the
character of a military officer, who was
present during the whole harangue.
Upon hearing himself several times
spoken of at "the soldier," the son of
Mars, boiling with indignation, inter
rupted the pleader '. "Don't call me sol
dier, sir, I'm an officer." Mr, Jeffery
immediately went on! "Well, gentlemen

Ifuve used it, three of them in their own case
and always with the happiest effects. The
numerous patent .medicines always before
them, lead to incredulity in regard to every
new remedy; and it is only after undoubted
evidence of vulue iu any arlicle.that anything
like a general confidence can be excited.
The unrivalled excellence of this combina
tion of agents, (in lheChrry Pectoral) proved
beyond cavil by repeated trial under their own
observation, has compelled medical men to
proclaim abroad its usefulness. It is beyond
all doubt the best general remedy we have fo r
the Pulmonary Affections of this climate, a t
the same time sedative and expectorant a
rare combination of ptoperties.
In hope that it will prove its own reward,
I subscribe mvself.
