In ciossing tho Seine tho other day we came to a largo open space, with neat stands ana caived wood coveilngs. As far as tho eyo could leaih a mass ol blooming plants and flow cis were seen. 1-ach potted plant was wrapped in spotloss whlto paper, which oponed at tho top, to show tho beauty of the fgllagojind blossoms, ninth lcsemhlingtho snowy cap which enclitics the pretty sweet face of a nun. Upon the stands were lilacs, anlcas, roses of all colors, lilies of the valley, hyacinths, violets and, indeed, almost cvuy flower which adoins the eaith In the spiing after the stoims and dark days of winter. The women woio whlto apionsand jaunty caps, and along tho liver bank, against the stone wall, weictiopital plants, trees, flowciing busbcH, loaning a mass of vegetation. How lofreshing is such a sight! Ono wishes to linger and inhale tho fragrance of tho sweet spiing bios Fonis. lleio you seo the flow eis just as they aie taken fioni tho earth, but you walk a littlo faithcr and stand Micllbound befoio a window ndoined with these same blossoms, but ar-i l a need In gilded baskets, bound lound with yaidsof bioad libbons, goigeous chaiiots, biilllantly-phunaged bhds and enormous bouiiucts on stands llchly dccoiatcd. Tho oxquisitoly knotled bows of libbons in all shades grjo a wonderful eftcct to these mas tMpicces, which will fado and spoil so quickly, but which give so much pleasme timing their short lives. THE PANTHEON, or National Mausoleum, is tho most conspicuous object, next to tho gildod domo of the Invalldcs, south of tho Seine. It is built in tho fonn of a Greek u oss, with alaigo dome. Tho interior has four naves suimounted by tho dome und sepaiated by ISO fluted columns. The ceilings aio richly dcc oiatcd, tho domo splendidly painted by Cbos, for which he was paid a hugchum and knighted by ChailcsX. on his visit to tho chinch. Tho Pantheon was intended foi a placo of worship, but in 1701 the Convention decided that tlio building should bo converted into a momoiial temple, and that tho following inscription, "Aux grands homines la patiio reeon naissanto," should be engraved on tho fiontof the building, Napoleon af terwaul oidored it to bo used again nsn church, according to tho inten tion of tho founder, at tho same timo passinga decicothatit should boused as a Hopulclne of great dignitaiics, of flccis of tho cmpiio and senators. Tho luhciiptiou was afteiwaid erased by Louis X.VI1I., and tbe building handed over to tho Arch bishop of Pails for divine worship. Louis Phillipo had tho iusciiption ro plaicd, cmryingout tlio intention of tho Convention, that it should be used as a mausoleum. During the devolution of 1S-1S tho building was used as tho hcadquaitcis of tho in hui gents, und, in IS", it was occu pied uy tno icaueis ot tlio commune. With gieut dilliculty tho Veisailles troops pi ewnted its being blown up with the powder stoied in tho crypt for that puipobo. Tho intcilor is simple, cold ami majestic, and con tains tho tombs of Voltaho, Iioussciu, Viitor Hugo,, Jllinbean and Muiat; tho last two w'eie taken up and shame fully Heated, Tho body of Muiat was tluown into a common soworiu tho lino Montmiutie, by oulor of tho National Government. Mliabciu's body was ehnmed after two yc.us, by two policemen, who put It In u sack ami bulled it In u cemetery, whcie only convicts mo placed, anil where no maik of tho occupant is allow i d to btaud. Numbers visit nih TOtn or victor nm.o, as Is shown by tho sonvenhs left thcio in tbo tonn of widths and flow cis. A sp.iiu is set aside beneath tho domo for tho laigest of thefeo tokens of loe and admiration, somo bcai ing tho name of a college ov i-chool whoso membeis wished to pay their respcit to the memory of tho wqll 5. now n no clifet. Though ho noted, bo won unknown to at lcnt ono Indi vidual In Paris, as in chown by the following Inciileiit. The girtiid old man entered amayor hoII'ico to certify ECinnthhtg, when tho cleik In charge asked him if he spelled his iiamo with a "T ' Holies of thedeii.utpd poet ai" in giratdcmind. Tbo woisbipers tif Victor Hugo aio willing to give almost any priu for souvpiiiis of the Illus trious mini. In ono window of tbo numerous euiiosity shops which abound hero Is a soft felt head cover ing, labeled " Victor Hugo's hat worn by him during tho Terrible Year." In all piobabllity another as genuine would tako Its place If this found n purchaser. Victor Hugo's bmbcr has been literally besieged by idle huntcis for looks of tho dead poet's hair. tiik itof-r. is- which moo nir.ii wll shoiUy change hands, as tho owner of the piopeity asks such an oxoi bltant stun that tho family feel imablo to purchase it. His daughter-in-law Intends to make one of tlio looms in her now house, which Is near tho lute poet's homo, an exact rcpiodiiction of that in which tho author wiote his celobrated novols. Victor Hugo hud two mhis nnd ono daughter. Tho mind of tho latter Is impahed, and she is in a pilvato asy lum in this city. It is said sho can rtpcat some of her father's works wonl for woid, and that sho always reads upsldo down. She can bo seen walking in thogardon with her maid, galheting smoli stones, with which sho llllH-Jierpockpia,. ShoJlien amuses hoi self forming llgurcs oniric -gniVi'l walk with tho stones sho has col lected. HIE lFSTIVlt, 01 MIIl-l.KVT has been celebrated in a most peculiar manner. It seems impossible for tbo Paiisians toobseivo six weeks' fast ing without a day to break the mo notony. It is unusual to see upon tho boulovaidsas many brilliantly decn luted chui lots, fiesh costumes, und musks of every vm Icty as w oi o seen hist Thuisday. And what did tho multitudes tome out to seo? Not a lecd shaken by tho wind, but a wash oi woman's leslival. Thcio wcio countless carnages with men and women in costume, and tho pave ments were alivo for miles with a nituy throng. Jlany piomenadcd infancy dress, wearing masks, and childicn from four jears and upward were ai rayed as brides, flower girls, nursoiy minus or cavaueis ol tno tune of XV. This event takes place every year, and each distikt of tlio city pro vides a wagon ornamented with flags. How eis and decs for tho king and queen of tlie laundi ics and their at tendants. The queens wcio crowned and tho maids of honor w era decorated w ith bioud sashes, feathcts and flowers. Thcio weio forty of these chariots, each or w iiich paid a visit to tho olllco of Le Petit Journal. Tho artistic taste of the lloiist timisformcd tho vestibulo into a iloial bower. Tho tariiages stopped befoio tlio entrance tlio kings and queens, with their attend' nuts, went into tho olllco. They then lotuined to their char iots, in which they 'partook of io ficshments. Somo -of tho carriages contained thrco jnetty gills dicssed ono in blue, the second in white and tho thiid in led, symbolic of tho national tolois. Ilouquets, palm trees and small sums of money for tho poor and specified objects of chanty, were left by these loyal peisonngcs. Hands of music accompanied some of the equipages. In ono chariot was an cnoimous ox, and nnothor repio seiitul Jeanne P Arc. Lhiringapail of tho nfteinoon a ball was given in tlio couidois and olllco ol Le Petit Journal, Tho heavens did not smile upon the stiangobut amusing caval cade, and dow lipoma of win would hrue scattcicd any ciowd but tho washci women.
