The Duke of Orleans, who was killed iu 1842 by a fall from his earring?, was the eldest son, and bad he lived the destiny Of Fiance would no doubt have been changed, for be was not only popular, but much beloved by the people, The Duke of Nemour Is the oldest member of the family. lie was bointu 1814, and hat four children: 1. Count d'Eu, born in 1342, and married to the daughter of Pedro 11, Emperor of Brazil. 2. The Duke of Alencon, born in 1844. 3. The Princess Marguerite, born in 1846. 4. The Princess Blanche, born in 1&57. The Prince do Joinville, born in 1818, Is the ' best known ot the Orleans family in this coun try. The celebrated De Joinville Ball, in New York, on the occasion of his nret visit to this country, was an event of considerable local im portance. He, with his son and one of his nephews, again visited the United States during the rebellion, and were at Ueneritl McClellan's headquarters, and held posts ot honor on his staff. He has two children : 1. The Frincess Frances, who married her couein, iho Duke de Chartres, was born in 1844. 2. The Duke de Peuthievre, born in 1845. The third con of the ex-King is the Duke d'Anmale, and he has but one son, the Duke de Guise, who was born in England in 1854. The fourth son ot Louis i'tiilippe is the Duke de Montpensier, born in 1824, who resiles in . Spain with his six children: 1. The Princess Isabella, born in 1848, mar ried to the Count de Paris. 2. The Princess Amelia, born In 18M. 3. Ihe PtincosB CbrlxiiDe, born in l52. 4. The Prince Ferdinand, born in 1859. 6. The Princess Mane de los Mercedes, bora In 1SC0. 6.

Robert d'Grleans.iDuke ot Cnarlres, born in raris in 1840, married his cousin, the daughter of the Prince de Joinville, and has three chil dren: 1. The Princess Marie, born in 1805. 2. Tbo Prince Robert, born in 18U0. 3. The Prince Henry, born in 18G7. With the exception of the Duke de Montpen sier, who never leaves his estate iu Spain, all the family rewide in England, where they are the re cipients of marked attention from the aris tocracy of that country. Masonry. "Was Uncle Paul a Mason?" Ike asked of Mrs. Partington, as he stood looking at the rigid profile of the ancient cor poral of the "Bloody Eleventh" that hung on the wall. "No, he was a veteran sergeant, naturally, though he took in gardening afterwards, and raised the most wonderful squashes, that always took the primer at the Horticultural .Fair." "I mean, was he a Free Mason ?" continued Ike. "0, dear, no," replied she, "and I'm glad of It, for they are a great deal too free in throwing their plasterin' round, which is very jnoi tarling, and takes the color out of things Bo; and when they whitewashed the kitchen didn't they make free with the balmy bud rum which they mistook for a cordial ? and I wish to gracious it had been a 'metio to have taught 'em a lesson to be a little less free next time." "But, Free Masons," said Ike, petulantly, "ain't masons; I mean the fellow that built ' the temple." "01" she exclaimed, "them? well, dear, I have heered of a good many things they did, and then again I have heered of a good many thii)gs they didn't, and so between 'em both I don't believe neither. It is a great mystery 1" ehe answered, "and if they did kill Morgan, they ought to have done it if they agreed to, tbo' 'twas a bad thing for him. But I never Lelieved the story told of his sculling up Ni agry Falls in; a potash kettle with a crowbar, which is preposterous, aud as for the gridiron thereby hangs a tale, and the Lord knows what they do in their seoret cemeteries, when they get on one auother's clothes by mistake, and cut up all sorts of capers, to say nothing f tlw) ridiculous aprons which make 'em look 80 queer." The interest of Ike had ceased, and he had turned Lis attention to anointing the cat with an application of soft soap. The continued unpopularity of C.orgey In Hungary was strikingly demonstrated recently, l, taid a visit to the Chamber at Pesth. Very soon after he was recognized in the gal lery a low murmuring was heard among the Radicals, which eradually became louder and more menacing, and at last broke out in cries cf "What does Oorgey want here f What impudeuce I Out with the traitor ! Does he want to betrav us. as he did his companions in arms in IMS ?" The President then rose, and tailed the House to order, but in vain. The cries and threats grew louder and louder, and only ceased when (iorirey ro.so from his seat and left the room. It is sail that he lult Pesth the same evening. A few days siuoe an old gentleman in Missouri, where the drouth lias been severe. and who has been hauling water for the last three months, on being asked by an acquaint ance if he thought it would rain, remarked, "I Loue not, for if it does it will spoil the loads so I cannot haul water." DAILY EVENING TELEGRAPH TRIPLE SHEET 1 31 TEA CUM EN T. Hon. J, MiAihltjr Unburdens Himself What He Thinks of the Failure to Im. peach Ihc President Another Dull Una Panic. Fi om the Tuleilo (Ohio) Blade, Dec. 19. Washington Citt, Dee. 13. KditoT Blade: I suppose it will be conceded that a Representa tive is entitled, when availed, to a bearing aud to fair dealine, at least from his own party press, Kvery fair man will concede ttat a Representa tive who devotes his time, tnlcnts, and means to arraiyulDK ami bnupinir to justice an admitted political criminal, oui;ht not to be assailed by his own party witnout the best of reasons, even though he committed blunders, and, in his zeal, did acts which tho more prudent might say were indiscreet, and give utterance, In moments of cxcitcmeiit, to suspicions which no evidence could be found to fully Kustaiu. In no public spoch which I ever made did I ever cbarpe Air. Johnson with complicity in the B9a slua'.iou plot. In ray public speeches I bsve been lar more reticent on this question than any ol the gentlemen who have been speakluir with me, and when I have alluded to it in public addresses, I have only slated what were my impresious and suspicions. On the 7th of Match, when Introducing, without the alteration of a word, the same charges aud specifications above quoted, I referred to the assassination in the speech which I then made under more than ordinary excitement. Of course no one will claim that in what I then said Mr. Johnson is charged with complicity in the assassination. As 1 made no such charcro, I did not, when presenting evidence to the Committee, direct the attention ol witnesses particularly to that matter. I have privately expressed the opinion that Harrison and lay lor were foully taken off. I never Intimated, however, that either of the Vice-Presidents, John Tiler or Fillmore, were iu the conspiracy, nor that Breckinridge co operated with thoo who attempted tho life ol Buchanan by poison. That Irom the hrst I suspected Mr. Johnson of a guilty knowledge of the H3a8bination is true, and 1 have repeatedly said in priva'.e converia tioo, that events Lad transpired since his in auguration tending to conhrui mc in that suspi cion. (Jcneral Loan, of Missouri, is the only Repre sentative, 1 bjlieve, who lias ever ollicially chsrged Mr. Johnson on the floor ot the House with complicity in tho great ciiine of assassina tion. The testimony on the a' sassination trials dis closed the lact 1hut, on the night of Mr. Lin colas murder, there were a huuarcd armed men In this city to co-operate with the conspirators in the horrible work ot assassination. That it was a widespread conspiracy is now well known. Evidence which cannot be disputed has established that fact. No effort worthy of the name has ever been made by the Government to arrest and bring to )ustice any one ot the con spirators now at large. Surratt was captured and broueht home despite the indifference of the hdmiuiatration, as was shown in tne report ot the Judiciary Committee submitted by Mr. Woodbridire, and it is believed by many that he will never be convicted, because the Government refuses or neglects to conduct the case as they would an ordinary suit involving a tew thou sand dollars. It is believed by many that the conviction of Surratt would lead to disclosures which would lilt the veil which to day con ceal and shields many of the conspirators. Hence the extraordinary efforts to prevent his conviction. 1 do tot disguise the fact that I am, and hare been, anxious to obtain any evidence which would tend to unravel the assassination plot, To obtain evidence on this subject, I have tra velled many miles and spent much time, and vibitud more than one prison. If a criminal, whose execution was fixed for to-morrow, should send for me to-nifih', assuring me that be could and would put mo in possession of written evi dence, and give me the names of persons whose testimony would aid in getting at the truth about the assassination of Mr. Lincoln, I would most certainly co at once, and I should go If Mr. Johnson hod ceased ' to be President. When I visited the prison in this city, it was with tbo expectation and nsaurauce of re ceiving Utters written by Davis, Johnson, and others, who, it was alleged, had a guilty knowledge of the assassination, and thsl these letters were in the handwriting of the parties named, and would establish that fact. Under the tame circumstances 1 would visit any prion to-morrow. And here, and now, permit me to say that the reckless assertion is without foundation which charges me, or auy one for me, or lor any member of the committee, with dragging into the light the statement of any perjurer, or that 1, or any one for me, ever soi.put to parade before the public, or before the committee, auy false statement as true. No one having any regard for the truth, who knows any thing ot the iacts in this impeachment caso, or has read my statement beicie the committee, would ever Lave made such an utterly unfounded rharpe a the above. 1 have gone through a lontr, laborious, and thanklens fiht, 1 entered into it with great reluctance, nud only because I believed it to ba an imperative dutv. I have been assailed aud mulioned without scruple by the minions of Executive power, aud have either been misun derstood or purposely misrepresented by thoe whom I regurded as friends, while profecd Republican Journals exult over every sensation riAiai'innh anv ieunv-a-liner may set afloat, and many ol these Journals seem to regret that they cannot tasten upon me some ousuouorauie act. Hint 1 have been disappointed is true in not eettine a number of letters which I supposed would ULdouuieniT De oDiuinea, auu wuiuu, beiuu in the handwriting of the parties, pro mised to reveal much ol the Hssasination plot. I never made any such statement publicly, how ever, lor leur ol failure. Conscious that I have dote no act, In pursuine this unplea-ant investi gation, in oLsisteut with my duty as a Repre sentative, 1 am content to bide my time. I have been olten and unjustly aseaueo, out time nas vindicated me. The incls adduced bvthe Judiciary Committee will make su ineHareablereconi, aud the verdict of history will be that Andrew Johnson was guilty oi "high crimes and misdemeauors," aschri;cd, and, in addition, that he became the ally of the authois of the Rebellion, and attempted to secure their rrstoiafion to power. That he oupht to have been impeached on the charges made, a mnionty of the ablest lawyers on the Juoiciarv Committee, who csrefuily and pa tiently investigated the case lor nearly a year, fulh bel eve, and so reported. Almost evi ry Republican newspapor was out spoken for impeuchment when Mr. Stantoa wa3 removed, aiid a number of Repreentatives who voted acaiust itv.ere also known to have pri vately and publicly on the slump expressed themselves in its favor. The elections and the financial condition of the country pioduced a reaoaon wbic'a euJed in a disgraceful panic. I ran only liken it to the bcusflcbs psuic at bull Run, when both, ai lilies were on the retreat at tho same time. Reverses at elections and financial embarrass ments may do much, as we have seen, to demo ralize a party, but they cannot change facts nor alter the lorce of legal evidence. I am com wiled cn n.v oath to vote on the facts and evi dence as presented, and not against the lads and eidem:e, either because the elections have dlta pointed roe, or because of a financial panic. How those who have been so unqualifiedly for Mr. Johnson's impeachment, and even now declare that on the evidence presented he ought to be imp ached, have beeu able to vole in the creative, and thiougb the press to pronounce to pn mptlv against it witnout leading the evi dence or even the reports of the committee, I am at a lor to understand, unless 1 admit that they are all under the influence of a general pmiic. I do not hesitate to say that the report of tho Judiciary Committee will be sustained when it comes to be eaie'ully examined hy the profession and an intelligent public. To-day J ude Wood ward (Pa.), one of the ablest Democratic lawyers in Consiesn. did not besltute to sustain the position of the majority ol the commit'eo on the law cf Impeachment, and so tar as I kno the leudlng lawyers and law writers sustain the views of the impcacheis. Tbut the evidence compiled by tbo committee will put Andiew Johnbcn into history where he belongs, no impartial msn wbo reads It can doubt. Least of all, will this evidence, or tbo repoitofthe committee, or the action of any one voting for Impeachment "reitore Mr. John son to the place he occupied in the hearts of the people, which he lorfeitod by bis treachery to his party ind humanity." We w ho favored impeachment must now await the verdict of those who are to come after ns. No one of all the actors in this movement can escape history. Time is the lrlend of truth and the enemy of all falsehood, and I am confident that time and history will vindicate the purity of our motives aud the justice of the verdict we bave made. Respectfully, J. M. Ashlit. The good people of Dresden are highly amused and astonished at the presence among them of a rich and learned Irish gentleman, with hia equally learned daughter. They neither eat meat nor drink wine oonsider artificial warmth as unwholesome never have a fire in their rooms, and keep their windows open day and night. They have made Dres den their headquarters for the last few years, and thence make ezonrsions and journeys, as far as Italy, Spain, and Frauoe, on foot, disdain ing the use of the modern means of locomotion, that of railroads more particularly. Ovid and other old classics are their constant travelling companions. In the four capitals London, Paris, Berlin, and Vienna the greatest proportion of births takes place in the last-named city. The fewest in Paris. Of legitimate births, Paria shows the smallest number, London the greatest. As regards the number of deaths, Vienna shows the greatest mortality, London the contrary. The greatest number of mar riages takes place in Berlin, in Vienna the fewest. Paris can show the greatest number of children that are stillborn, Vienna the fewest. Of all four towns the proportion of individuals to each house is in Vienna the greatest, in London the least. London con sumes in proportion the greatest quantity of meat, Berlin consumes least. The German magazine, Unscrt Zeit, de scribes a enrions invention made by a Russian officer, Lieutenant-Colonel Weyde. It consists of an apparatus for throwing light on objects under water for the use of divers, eto. The machine is said to be very inexpensive, and experiments made with it by the Russian and Prussian Governments in the sea near Cron stadt, and in the river Spree, have produced Tery satisfactory results. A very important use of this invention is that it enables the officers of a chip of war to discover any submarine mines or torpedoes sunk under it by the enemy. It must, of conrse, also greatly facilitate the reco very of sunken ships and other objects at the bottom of the sea. HOLIDAY CONFECTIONS.
