Paris, January 12tb, 1875.
Tbe Ataemblj cannot een contitat Ministry,
Rod it in acle peculating about wbat may fol
low Its inability, wbicb will be definitely teeted
In a few day, to pass project for tbe organiza
tion of tbe country. No one approaches tbe
hereafter, though statesmanship is said to be
waat tbe more it can foresee. The regret is
erj general, that the Marshal sboold tare delif
ered bis last xneaoage, which was nncaliei for,
tad hat not enly placed bim in antagonism with
tbe cnited minorities In tbe Assembly, but forced
bim to take bis stand on Orleanisa, which is the
weakest and least popular of all the existing isms.
The Marshal demand that bis powers be defined,
and to leare everything indefinite till bis term of
office expires, when all parties could grapple each
other's throats to settle tbe question of supremacy.
This tbe nation will never consent to, in order to
oblige any pretender. It insist on the House
being pat in order now, and the present employed
to make provision for tbe rainy day. Tbe very
fact of forcing forward the project for a Senate,
apart from, and independent of, defining first the
form of government it was destined to serve, was
too openly Orleanist to receive the support of tbe
other parties. Orleanism thns has played its last
card, and lost. In tbe general elections it will
disappear ; it has been on its trial since tbe over
throw of Thiers, and has been found wanting.
One remedy ia clear tbe dissolution, and Marshal
McMabon may rest assured, if be adopts that
frogramme, be will bare the " entire nation for
overs;" but be will have no longer a royalist
majority; tbe popular rote will fiat the Republic,
and tbe Marshal baa never ceased to recognize
tbe Sovereignty of the Chamber. The party
that ia afraid of the ballot boxes is a party con
demned in advance. Tbe Gordian knot is about
being cut; it will be as merciful as it will be
timely, as really tbe country is worn out with
tbe exceptional state of things, and 'with the
chronic sterility of the Assembly. Tbe people
desire only tranquility, to find work and to exe
cute it, to be restored their necessary liberties,
and to be treated rather as men, than as children,
by every government that may succeed to power.
The crisis in the Reformed Cbnrcb of France is
becoming more grave ; the difference of opinion
between the Orthodox and Liberal Protestants,
more profound. Already the cry of persecu
tion " is raised, but it is to be hoped tbe govern
ment will settle tbe dispute by measures of
cagacity and moderation rather than by any
stretch of authority. A recent decision of the
Minister of Publio Worship, rather leans to give
time to the Orthodox to concert their plana for
ousting tbe Liberals from the churches they at
present bold, and where the Orthodox are at the
same time in a minority. It is not a question of
dogma, but of ecclesiastical discipline, which
separates the antagonists, now rapidly becoming
belligerents. Tbe . Liberals or Nonconformists,
reiterate their determination not to accept tbe
doctrinal decrees of any Synod, and the govern
ment inclines to back the Synod, doubtless be
cause it is an authority. Public opinion in
France has not yet been appealed to, and that
would at present only envenom the quarrel,
which ought to have been regulated after tbe
family pattern originally ; but it is impossible to
believe that opinion would look on with indiffer
ence at one-balf ci xrencn Protestantism being
shown the door, because it will not subscribe to
tbe rulings of the other.
In self defence the Lord Mayor is justified in
returning to London ; there seemed to be a con
spiracy on the part of bis French admirers to
breakfast and dine bim to death ; every succeeding
banquet beine more Lucullian than its prede
cessor. Ilis Lordship brought bis Sheriffs and
trumpeters witn bim, but it appears be lorgot bis
medicine man. Parisians have certainly vied in
paying bim all honors, and bis beautiful steeds
must have made tbe mouths of hippophagists
water. " God Save the Qiwwn " was in fair way
of cutting out tbe "Marseillaise," especially as
tbe Republican air has become unlasbionable
under the Republic. Ilad " mi lord Stone," time
and stomach to remain longer within our walls,
" Kule Britannia " would have succeeded Madame
Anzot on the barrel organs, and Siraudin would
certainly have brought out Union Jack bonbons.
There are no less than five different photos of bis
Lordship offered for sale, in which Baron Ilauss-
xnann docs duty tor him, ana douotiess be will
leave behind bim more honorary dentists than he
bas teetb, and these are said to be au complet. it
would not be surprising if Sardoa wrote a tragedy
or moving drama, introducing tbe civio authori
ties of London ; tbe unused up materials of bis
la llaxntt might be truated to profitable account ;
just as the manikins representing his dead Guelfs
and Obibelines, now do tbe part or revellers in
tbe triumphal car of Orpheus. The Parisians
ill gratefully remember the services rendered to
tbe inauguration of their new opera, by the
presence or toe London autnorities; tbe Lord
Mayor came like some Magi to salute its acces
sion ; entering like a fairy king, in the midst of
his pompous cortege, to take bis place at the
marriage of Cinderella. But though tbe French
would laugh at such a ceremonial, ir originated
among tbemselvcs, would view it as no bigher
than a masquerade, tbe most tbougbtless feel,
that the quaint forms and ceremonies connected
with the Doge of London, unite the present with
tbe past, novelty witb tradition, recent laws with
antique customs, contemporaries with ancestors;
tbey mix tbe ashes of ages witn tbe construc
tions of progress," and embalm some fragment of
history and perpetuate tbe triumph of some pop
ular right. This moral has not been overlooked
by the modern Athenians, who alter all are not
Iconoclasts at heart.
Though officially inaugurated, tbe new Opera
is not yet finished; the left wing, tbe section in
tended for the Imperial family, is unachieved,
fault of funds. Loans bad to be negotiated to
enable the structure to be opened as it is. A
sum of 200,000 francs is necessary to provide the
proper nt tings up lor its illumination alone,
which for the facade, will consist of bronzn fig
ures of mammoth dimensions, sustaining reflect
or. Tbe library bas yet to be installed and bas
accommodation for a Eertes of shelves over two
miles in len.rtb; the "muBic hall" will include
manuscript ujuejc copied or to be corned, as well
as compositioas never yet represented or executed.
Not tbe less curious will be the "jewel room,"
where all tbe barbaric pearl and gold is preserved.
and though but Imitation possesses not tbe leas a
great value. Tbe decorations alone- employed in
tbe lourtn act ot rAJrtcatne, are estimated at
25 ,000 francs. Among other incompleted works
are the smoking-room, the restaurant, and the
lift. Tbe restaurant will be open to the general
?ublic, as well as to tbe frequenters of tbe opera,
he smoking-room will be so constructed as to
ventilation that not a puff will be able to strav
into tbe building and the lift is intended only for
tbe aged. The execution of these works, but
above all their decoration, would require some
millions of francs to accomplish. The representa
tions now are very sober in comparison with the
51a opening; it is like the banquethall deserted,
any are of opinion that the prices are fixed at
too nigh a rate, and if tbe new lyrical theatre
succeeds, the opposition will tell on tbe Grand
National Opera. Three francs for a seat in tbe
attics, and ten for one in tbe pit, are only for the
crowd with Pea body parses.
x.verytbing continues to be very dear in Fans.
and now that tbe frost is threatening again, pru
dent people are laying in a supply oi cha,issorts, a
kind or course knitted woolen slipper, generally
worn inside wooden shoes. Of course Parisians
will cerer forget New Year's night and the terri
ble thaw, when to vj&?V borne without breaking
ones brittle bones, stockings bad to be drawn over
boots, a case where it paid to put the cart before
tbe borse; well, to avoid sucn a desecration of
hosiery, cbaussons are being purchased, and these
humble article of peasant costume are running
un in price. Paaeine a little bizher un in tbe
scale of tbe necessaries of lifa, since fifty years
vegetables and fruit have increased 45 per cent.
and meat and beverages 87 per cent.; coffee, sugar,
and tea the latter not of much importance
in France, have increased by 200 per cent In
other terms, in 1820, the cost of living per head
was but 95 francs, while in 1870, it amounted to
195 fracas. The Legit mists ought to claim the
anaen regime, based on these "statistics made
beautiful." Would it be worth while getting up
a revolution for O. P. prices ? There is no jacfc
or comestibles or ail kind in i ranee, in season as ;
well as out of season, and which Lave been very
extensively patronized during tbe holidays.
France ta a Dation of gxUuiKmUU ai ffemrrnets

aootLer affair, ari bcr food reparations

provincial cities being celebrated for some sjcial
Cvmettible or dih. Her people are brnee con
noisseurs of good things, just as ancknt Rome led
the fashion, gave the ton, to delicate dishes.
France has inherited the sceptre in the culinary
art, and has a very wise article in her kitchen
code, that a woman shall never rule tbe roast "
a most excellent eulic law, lor French cookery
is a laborious profession. At Rome, persons
were appointed expressly on account of the exqui
site delicacy of their palates, to test if certain
fish bad been caught at tbe mouth of tbe Tiber,
or farther on, and if the livers of geese had been
fattened on green or dry figs. It is only in Paris
that a man-cook can be found near to the Roman
standard, and French cooks are as universal as
Tbe Grand Hotel has gone into tbe dairy busi
ness; it has long since turned poulterer, fish
monger, and fruiterer.- It bas now its own cow
house,' and supplies at the depot, "milk fresh
from the cow," at the rate of 12 boos per quart,
or if bottled, sealed and duly marked with care
and delivered at the bouse, eight sous more.
There has been the usual anniversary mass
celebrated for the repose of the ex-Emperor's
soul. Tbe gathering of tbe Bonapartists was
perhaps more numerous this year than the last,
when their prospects were more cheerful. Of
late a reaction bas set in against them caused by
their going-a-bead too rapidly. On the present
occasion tbe little violet bouquets were in great
request. In accordance with the ev?nt, tbe
" ghost " of a viva was given for the Emperor.
These solemnities must pay, or they would not be
indulged in beyond doubt, but they are just as
reprehensible in point of taste, to say nothing
more, as a political oration over the grave of a
modern Brutus in Pre Lachaise.
Preparations are already being made for the
Carnival, which really promises to be gay, as a
new generation bas come into existence since the
invasion, which intends to have its cakes and ale.
Of course there is no use of remaining forever in
sackcloth and ashes. Youth never dies. If the
Carnival did not exist it would be necessary to
invent it, and the money spent, or squandered,
does good to the poor and needy. Before our
ancestors knew tbe virtue of masked balls, the
churches bad annually to celebrate tbe well-known
Fetes dea Faus.
The umbrella is a notable article of toilette or
of habiliment, the friend of bad days. Sally
Gamp was not behind tbe age as we shall presently
see, nor was Scribe wrong in dedicating an ode
to it. Sardon, the rich Sardon now, has preserved
in bis dining hall the gingham umbrella which
was his eole companion when be first came to
Paris to seek his fortune ; the old Marquis de
Boissy had engraved on his, " this umbrella bas
been stolen from tbe Marquis de Boissy.' It is
a notorious fact, that one never receives back an
umbrella that is worth anything. It may seem
strange to relate the fact, that in the eighteenth
century in Paris, umbrellas formed an institution,
and their loaning was regulated by a royal decree.
The waifs and strays of tbe city were allowed to
act as umbrella carriers, just as slaves and niggers
are represented in screen-work holding Buch over
tbe beads of nabobs and the salt of tbe earth; or,
to hire out tbe same protection, for a small fee,
and on depositing a small sum ; these " loan com
missioners " settled down where tbey could, bad
a lantern, with a number on it for recognition
and identity, and each umbrella was to be in
green material ; the same applied to parasols.
The revolution swept away the institution like so
many others. -
Roch, the executioner, bas set out on bis circu
lar tour; ho has adopted a few more improve
ments on his enfant, as the guillotine is familiarly
called ; perhaps an economy of a second makes a
difference in the chopping off of a bead ; he
ordered a new basket the other day, and the
workman only learned its destination when ordered
to line it witb zinc ; he claims an increase ot price
as he was engaged he alleges under false pretences
to make a 44 plate, instead of a 44 bead basket
Thirty years ago Marie Guernic was found dead
in ber bed, tbe doctors declaring she bad been
poisoned ; she was on the eve of being married
and bcr sister, Madeleine, was believed to be
jealous of her sister's happiness; suspicion fell on
MaUelclue, anu ibuugu, jvwug, ouo tried,
found guilty, and executed. Their father bas
just died, and confessed to the clergyman, the
Abbe Barreau, requeetmg bim to publish the
fact, that it was be who poisoned his daughter
Marie, and that Madeleine knew be bad done so
but died to save him. Novelists in search of
peg. could hang one, or three novels on this.
Those who are interested in self-made men,'
can witness in the Paris hospital Necker, old
Senkeisen, aged 78. Entering tbe army, at the
age of 14, on the command of his father, he fought
with the Bavarians in their alliance , with the
trench under Isapoleon 1. He received promo
tion, and was wounded at Waterloo; in 1830 he
fought in Algeria; was naturalized a Frenchman
received a pension, and was complimented for his
bravcrv by Marshals Berthier, Augereau and
Luchet; was decorated with the Legion of Honor
and tbe St. Helena medal. Now change all the
masculine pronouns, for the doctors have pro
nounced him to be a female. What a brave old
girl but not of the period !
The Late Empress of China Her Suicide,
A London dispatch, on the authority of the
Pali Mall Gazette, announces that a private
telegram has been received from China confirm
ing tbe reports of the death of the Emperor, and
stating that the empress, overcome with grief,
bad committed suicide. Tbe death of A-Lou-Te
the empress wife of the late T'ouns. Chi. earner
or of China, follows the death of her husband in
natural and inevitable sequence. lie was the
nominal head of a government by ministers. She
was selected to share the faminine ball of the
imperial and religious titles that attach to the
sacred ruler of China as the representative of
wbat foreigners style tbe literary gentry of tbe
flowery kingdom, liv tbe same principle which
makes annual examinations in the Chinese classics
the stepping stones to rank and distinction, the
regents, or Prince Kong acting through them,
chose for the honorary rather than the honored
wife of the young ruler the daughter of Kh'oung
khi, chief of the Pckin academy, and ten years
ago at the bead ot toe lian-lin examination lists
She was well educated, and as scholarship in the
Chinese of the word can scarcely be expected of
an absolute prince, it was something to have
snaring the throne, one to whom tbe sacred
classics were familiar. By birth and descent and
aside from ber training, she was connected with
the reactionary party in China, and her selection
by a liberal prince, like the prime minister, could
only be explained by the fact that be chose her
irom a laniuy weakened ny past disaster and una
ble to do present barm. Her father was the son
of Sals-hanga, one of the military chiefs who sur
rounded Hsien-feng in the early and successful
years of his reign, but failing as did every Chinese
general wbo louowed bun to defeat Hung bin
tsuen, tbe leader of the Taeping insurgents, be
was disgraced, ine lire of the deleated general
was spared and bis property was untouched, but
be lost bis offices and honors. Ibis was in loo2;
ten years later, when T'oung-chi succeeded to his
' lather s throne, severe repressive measures were
adopted against all wbo were identified with the
; reactionary policy of tbe last reign, and among
others baisbanga lost his property by confiscation.
In his retirement he bad identified himself with
the factions whose counsels precipitated the war
with the allied powers and wbo had attempted,
by an imperial rescript appointing eight of their
number tbe councillors of the infant prince, to
make their power permanent. Sais-hanga's pun
ishment was due quite as much to the marriage
ha had just been contracting between bis son
Kb'oung-khi and a daughter of Tsian-Hua, one
of the eight councillors just alluded to, as to his
own position in Chinese politics. Death at the
hands of the executioner or suicide was the only
alternative left to the leaders of the conservative
party after prince ITung's success, and Tsian Una
availed himself of the last privilege, as his grand
daughter bas just done, doubtless, if the truth
were known, for much the same reason. At the
time of her future husband's accession to the
throne the fortunes of ber family were at a low
ebb, but they continued steadily to improve from
that time, and when the empress dowagers were
seeking in 1872 for the young girl to whom tbe
golden tablet and seal should be sent, no better
candidate for the honor was presented than A-Iou-te.
She was then only eighteen, two years older
than T'oung-chi, but natural talent bad been
aided by a careful training, and there seems to
be no reason to doubt that by Chinese standards
she was right Jy considered a gifted woman. She
was thoroughly imbued with the vein r
pedantry which marks Chinese learning,

out of tbe yellow-tinted palace after she
is told of bcr ordering away the breaifai
j one morniDg on the j Tea that she and h
band were better satisfied with the apothegms oi

The literary success by which ahe Lad distin
guished herself had developed, too, a stubborn
personal pride which led her to accept without
any qualms the prostration of her lather acd bis
fatuity before lier when the news of her selection
reached them. Some of the same spirit comes to
light in the news which bas just com in regard
to b:r. To a woman whose life -bad been up to
ber marriage one of brilliant success, the two
years which ebe had passed in the imperial palace
could not have been pleasant. To begin witb,
she bad two mothers-in-law, the two regents re
taining their powers for some months after ber
marriage, and she could rightly claim but a small
fraction or ber imperial nusoanu. 3De was, it is
true, hwanghoi, his only legitiaate wife, but her
rights were shared by two inferior wives, mar
ried to him previously, and the boyhood of the
prince whom she wedded had been passed in the
dissolnte comcanv of the concubines with whom
an eastern court surrounds its monarch. What-
erer her lift may bare been, no record of it has
reached the outer world since she went within tbe

Influence of Trees on Rainfall and Climate.
Ata recent meeting of the Scottish Arboricnl-
tural Society.' a report was made by Xr. Buchan,
secretary of the Scottish Meteorological Society, of
experiments on ralatail at CranwaiD. " loe forest
selected contained about sixty-two acres, and a
little outside to the northwest, was a green knoll
1 unite clear of trees. In the Interior of the wood.
and 320 vards distant was another knoll cf precisely
similar character. Immediately on tbe top of the
western slope of this knoll was a bare patch about
50 feet in diameter, and this was surrounded on all
aides witb trees of various sorts, varying from 40 to
50 feet In height. The growth of tbe green sward
and of the plants around showed that the (dotation
was well fitted for the inquiry." Two sets of
meteorological instruments, exactly alike, were
placed one 6ft each knoll, at exactly the same
elevation above the ground. Observations were
begun on tbe ICth of September. 1873, and continued
to tbe end of October, 1S74. 44 Tbe precise points
to be elucidated were the temperature and the con
dition -of the atmosphere as regards moisture out
side the wood as compared with the interior of tbe
wood." In tbe interior, tbe tugbest temperature was
794: the lowest. 19 4: range, 604; on tbe out
side, (occurring tbe same day as the preceding) the
highest, 78 1: the lowest, 19 8; range, 5o53.
The mean of all tbe maxim am day temperatures at
tbe station within the woods was 52 9 2; on the out
side. 51 7: of all the minimum day temperatures
inside the interior, 38 8: on the outside, 38 7.
Tbe means of night temperatures were very nearly
identical at both stations daring the whole period
of observation ; except in June, tbe difference was
never more than a fifth of a degree, but for tbe
days of maximum temperature tbe averages show
an excess of half a degree in favor of the station
Tbe remarkable result disclosed during the annual
rise of temperature in tbe spring and summer
months was, that in the inside of the wood tbe tem
perature was two degrees bigher tban on tbe out
side, while during the annual fall of temperature in
the autumn, the temperature of the day inside of the
wood was in the mean half a degree lower than on
In respect to moisture, the results were as fol
lows : Tbe average dew-point, at 9 o,clock in tbe
morning, was. at the interior station. 42. 5 : at tbe
exterior, 42. In the month of August the dew-
point at the interior was, on the average, 41 . 8
higher than at the exterior. American Sports

" On, What a Nuisance !" This exclamation
fell from the lips of a mother, as the patter of
many little feet went romping over the stoop and
the merry shout and laughter ot happy voices
rang through the house. Willie bad found bis
chums, and Susie had gathered her playmates to
bide and go seek among the shrubs and bushes of
a luxurious home. But the mother bad forgotten
for a moment that the brightest joys of ber beau
tiful home were the bright and beautiful little
boys and girls who went rollicking across the
piaxza, and who had called forth that thoughtless
expression. Children ! God bless them ! Give
them a chance ; their pursuits, their play, their
.mhiki9D hlv aroubloo, cro soonainIv vary
trivial to many grown people, but to them tbey
are as stern, as real, as hard to endure, as are the
many burdens that come to us in our manhood
struggle. Then gladden their young hearts witb
a kindly word and a pleasant look. Let memory
photograph upon tbeir minds yonr face framed in
bright wreath of loving smiles, and there will
come back to you a heavenly compensation of
happiness, welling up into your heart a living
spring ot joy. uoa bless tbe children !
Some years since the pastor of a New England
village church adopted a plan to interest the
members of his flock in the study of the Bible.
It was this : At the Wednesday evening meeting
he would give out some topic to be discussed on
the ensuing week, thus giving a week for them
to study up. One week the subject was St. Paul.
After the preliminary devotional exercises, the
pastor called upon his deacons to 44 speak to the
Sucetion." One immediately arose and began to
escribe the personal appearance of the great
apostle to the Gentiles, lie said St. Paul was a
tall, rather spare man, witb black hair and eyes,
dark complexion, bilious temperament, etc., His
Eicture of Paul was a faithful portrait of himself.
Ic sat down, and another pillar of the church
arose and said, " I think the brother preceding
me has read the Scriptures to little purpose, if
his description of St. Paul is a sample of bis
Biblical knowledge. St. Paul was, as I under
stand it, a rather short, thick-set man, witb
sanay nair, grey eyes, norm coopiexion, and a
nervous, sanguine temperament," giving, like
his predecessor, an accurate picture of hims'lf.
He was followed by another who bad a keen sense
or tbe ludicrous, and who was withal an invete
rate stammerer he spoke as follows : 44 My bre-
bre-bretberen, I have nev-ncver fo-found in my
Bi-bible much ab-a-about tbe p-per-personal ap-pe-pearance
of St. P-p-paul. But one thing is
clearly established, and tha-that is St. P-paul nad
an imp-p-pediment in his speech." The effect
can be imagined. A 44 tidal wave" of audible
smiles swept - over the congregat:on, the good
clergyman taking his full quota. He immediate
ly arose and dismissed the assembly.
