THE DAILY EVENING TELEGRAPH PHILADELPHIA, MONDAY, JULY 11, 1870.
tmNowof from thi flrtt fat. following bave been the most prom'nent: "Pevue de l'HUtolre Universale," published in 1854; "DuRole de la Famillc dans l'Education," which was "drowned" by the French Academy In 1857;-Dc la Llberte des Ciltes en France," la 1858; 'Es8als de I'otiilque ct de Utteratnre," la 1859 "Du Oouverncment I'arlemcntalre, le Pecret du 24 Novembre," in 1800; 'Deui Lcttres stir la Reforrae da Code Tenal;" "Elizabeth et Henri IV;" "Nou veaux Esaai de Politique et de Litterature," and "Quelques Pages d'Histolrc (Jontempo raine," In 1802: "Essals do Politique et do Lit terature" (8d series), in 180": aad "Etudes sur les Moralistcs Francals." in 1801. But the most noticeable of his published works was a politi cal pamphlet, Riven to the world In 1300, under the title of "Les Anclens Partis." In this ho aisallcd the Government so recklessly that he was subjected to a prosecution by It, the result 1 Of the trial being a month a incarceration and the payment of a fine of one thousand francs. "It wa9 the pretentious elegance of the young ambassador's literary etyle and speech," said the Pall Mall Gazette, in commenting on his recent diplomatic appointment, "which brought him Into the Academy in 1805." Whether this criti cism be ju6t or not, the. goal to which every literary Frenchman aspires was attained by hira at the age of thirty-six. On the 7th of April, 1855, he was elected a member of the French Academy, In the place of M. Ampere. In May, 1307, he received still another substantial recog nition of his literary standing and abilities by being appointed one of the committee of Ave members of the French Academy to superintend a new edition of the "Historical Dictionary of the French Language." His position as per manent chairman of this committee he resigned just before his departure from Paris, and not a little sensation was created by his presuming to recommend to the Academy the name of his successor, a recommendation which was rejected with great unanimity, amid much excitement. Returning to his journalistic career, wo find that hia reputation and fortune as a writer were bo well established at the time that Government pressure was brought .to bear so heavily on the Journal des Debats as to force him for a while Into purely literary labors, that he gradually resumed his former line of writing, and by the combination of elegance, force, and truth, con tributed In no small degree towards bringing about that healthy sentiment in the public opinion of the country which culminated, at the close of 1809, in the elevation of his warm per sonal friend M. Olllvier to the Premiership. Ihe progress of "liberty under the Empire" caused the gradual disintegration of the Orlean iat party, and nt the same time threw M. Pre-vost-Paiadol into the following of Olllvier, in whose peculiar views on "constitutional liberty" he has professed to acquiesce for some time past. The advent of the Tiers Parti to power found him in full harmony with it and its leaders, and in his most recent work of Im portance, "La France Nouvelle," he has sketched with his accustomed brilliancy the prospects and destiny cf the country under the new reqime. At the elections of 1803 ho had presented himself as a candidate for the Corps Legislatif from the sixth circumscription of Paris, but only to sustain a defeat. Ills political career was therefore still restricted to journalism up to the date of his appointment as Minister to the United .States. The causes which most con tributed to bring that event about it Is difficult to define. M. Prevost-Paradol had been such a prominent and persistent opponent of the empire that there was probablj' a desire on the part of the Emperor to conciliate him and the comparatively small body of followers who are directly influenced by one who has been more indebted for success to brilliant intellectual powers than to a fancy for manipulating the masses by displays of mere demagoguism. His accordance with the views of M. Olllvier, of course, made his entrance into the service of the empire both possible and natural, and the selection of the mission to the United States was perhaps the result of his well-known posi tion in reference to this country. He has a perfect command of the English language, and consequently has enjoyed better facilities than most prominent Frenchmen for analyzing and comprehending the natnre of our institutions. Throughout the recent war of the Rebellion he was a firm, consistent, and enthusiastic friend of the Union cause, and in .the columns of the Journal des Velats frequently gave that cause the effective support of his brilliant and trenchant pen. The service thus rendered can not be appreciated too highly, and in the hearty welcome which will be extended to the new Minister, he will have abundant proof ot the gratitude of the American people. But, although there was an eminent fitness in his appointment by reason of his friendly feel ings towards the country to which he was to be accredited, although the Emperor was predis posed in his favor, and although M. Ollivier himself was In a position to demand it almost on the grounds of a personal favor, his selection for the American mission was not accomplished without much difficulty. There was trouble In getting M. Berthemy out of the way, but this was finally accomplished by his transfer to the Belgian Court, a transfer in accordance with his inclinations. It is also said that the pro ject was kept altogether too long from Count Daru, who was at the head of the Foreign Office at the time the matter was was first agi tated, early In the present year. Count Daru's official dignity sustained such a severe shock thereby that it is asserted he at first offered a decided opposition to the project. He yielded at last, and his final withdrawal from the ministry entirely removed this obstruction. The appointment appears to have been fully deter mined upon about the first of last February, but it remained In abeyance until the middle of June, when, after a succession of conflicting rumors, it was officially promulgated. When definitely announced, however, it gave rise to a great deal of excitement in Paris, and no diplomatic appointment made by the Freuch Government for some years has excited such Sharp and savage criticism. Several of the Liberal papers assailed M. Prevost-Paradol In the bitterest terms for following the example of M. Ollivier by accepting office of any kind BDder the empire. In the columns of the Pay, M. Paul de Cassalgnac, a reckless supporter of the empire, made this violent attack: "'He knows English so well!' the Journals have been sayinfr for the last six months in Hpt-akin of the new Minister. But why not the Embassy to I ondon, as there the Orleans Frlne's could have ct mmuntcated with them so much more freely? At P'eaeut tuey will be obliged to send their letters to Vagtiington. Such behavior on the part of the Ireucu Ministry is really not considerate. And have you noticed that the Journal Oflicie In desig nating the new diplomatist, adds his title of Meml.re de r Acidemia Francala" t Had lie been an Orphe onlst ot Suresuea, or a member of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, or even of the llyglenlo Association to protest against the abuse of tobacco, any auca title would have been registered M a speclul merit, as aome semblance of reason was absolutelr to be found I To be a member of the lu autute, then, Is really something . Evidently, since it In equivalent to saying that a man Is an Orlcan lst," To this M. Trcvost-Parodol responded In a card published on the 18th of June. The term "vanquished of February" refers to tho Revolu tion of 1848, by which the House of Orleans was overthrown. The response to the attack of the Pay reads as follows: "Permit me tolniorm you, as you call upon me to explain, that, since my entry Into public life, I have been ardently, but plainly, liberal and parliamentary, and you might have seen by my writings that, though I may have a preference for a constitutional monarchy profoundly reformed. 1 have no objec tionto the 'republican form.' 1 know that you are led aBtray by my relations and friendships, out a man may be deeply attached to his friends and yet remain himself. Thus you are wrong In attributing to me, on the one hand, faults which I have not committed, and, on the other, resentments which I (to not entertain. In a word, you are mistaken in continually making me out as a vanquished of Feb ruary, for f am at present but 'a vanquished of De cember.' Pray pardon this reply, which vou ask for, andbelleve me yours, etc. Pkrvost-P'aradol.'' Less than two years ago, M. de Cassalgnac found occasion to make an equally bitter assault upon the new Minister, because he sub crlbed to the Baudin monument. In response to that, M. Prevost-Paradol wrote the followlug uote, under date of November 8, 1S0S: "In reproaching nie for my subscription to the proposed monument to representative Bmclln, killed December 8, 1H1, you demand if my Intention Is to thank M. Hamlin for having 'shown to the door ihe government of my predictions.' I have thought until now that, if any one was undertaking, en December 3, 1861, to show a regular government to the door, it was not M. Baudin. Strict justice ought to bring you of your own accord to recognize, outPiric of all party spirit, that M. Baudin has a right to the same epitaph as the conibatauts of July, 'dead in defense of the laws.' And as the sacrifice of his life, made voluntarily and without hope, was accom panied by an admirable speech, I have ever thought, long before the celebrity now given to his tomb, that the memory of Baudin ought to be as dear a that of the Chevalier dAssas to all those who are still concerned for the honor of the French name." M. Prevost-Paradoi's acceptance of the mis sion has also subjected him to eevere denuncia tion by the Avenir Xalional and the Union. From the remarks of the latter journal we take the following: "The new diplomatist owes his renown to the sharpness of his pen against the Imperial rnjime , r his attacks, finely pointed, opened for him the por tals of the Academy, which delighted In the epi grams against the ruling power and which to-day smiles at the praises bestowed on it by the converts. If one could feel surprise at anything nowadays, one would aRk how It happens that all this load of wit and sharpness can suddenly be laid at the feet of that Majesty so many times exposed to its raillery. A certain eirort of imagination is even now required to picture an ambassador of the Imperial Govern ment in the shape of a subscriber to the Baudin monument and a former editor of the Courricr du ltimanche, which was eight times warned, twice sua pended, once condemned, and in the end suppressed as a punishment for its well-known article, 'he Pate renter.' " The "Palefrenier" or "6table-boy" article referred to above, for the publication of which the Courrier du Limanche was put out of exist ence, contained the following venomous pas sage: "France Is a beautiful court lady, beloved by the most gallant men, who has run away to live with a stable-boy. She is despoiled, beaten, debased more and more every day. But it can't be helped ; she has come to like it, and cannot be wrested from her woriniess lover." But the jealousy to which these assaults of both Liberal and Imperial lournals Is credited has been fully compensated for by tho universal favor with which M. Prevost-Paradoi's appoint ment has been received in other circles. The American residents of Paris especially have been enthusiastic in their approval of the selection, and the new Minister was all the rage among them from the time his appointment was an nounced until he took his departure from Paris. A correspondent, who attended a dinner given in his honor on June 24 by General J. Meredith Read, the Amtrican Consul-General at Paris, thus describes bis personal appearance: "The first feeling with which one Is inspired on an acquaintance with the person or the new French Minister to Washington is one of disappointment. People look for a diilerent kind of face and ex ores. siou in the brilliant writer and political satirist, whose pen was so dreaded by the old majority in the Chamber, and to whom his present elevation has given such deep offense, lie is considerably under the middle height, has a strongly-marked Jewish style of face, though his family do not belong to that persuasion; large, clear hazel eyes, a mouth and chin rather warting in decision, a pleasant smile and a manner without much personal dignity. Judging him at the first glance, you would take him for a smart little Hebrew, whose business brings him Into eon'iuual contact with the fair sex, for ho has the ready, jaunty air of the shopkeeper, and the features perpetually wreathed in smiles which are proper to the avocation. When vou come to speak with him all these impressions vanish. He at once rivets and fascinates your attention. Yon Dnd that all this bonhomie of appearance serves but as a dis guise to a mind keen, searching, and skeptical, and the quiet sarcasm of his manner, grotesque at times in its forms of expression, serves to complete the conviction that you are conversing with oue of the most charming of caveur, but one of the most mor dant and dangerous of political opponents." After referring to the daughter and son who bave accompanied M. Prevost-Paradol to the United States, the same correspondent continues: "A third child he leaves here in the care of a rela tive. M. Paradol was married very young, and is now a widower at the age of forty-one. He inhabits a small suite of apartments in the Hue St. George, an rinqvieme, and lives in the simplest and most un ostentatious style possible. He is surrounded by none of the obiet il'urt or bibeltos which adorn the apartments of literary men, artists, and people of taste In geueral His study is a small, siuiply-fur-nished room, with but a slim show of books, and no pictures. The only feature in it worthy of notice is lifs arm-chair, a ponderous mahogany one (style de l'Empire), ornamented with heavy gilt lines, heads and claws, and which may have been a state chair of tne first Napoleon. M. Paradol will make no stay in New York on his arrival. He will push on direct lor Washington to avoid all provocations to speech making a practice which the Imperial Government does not favor on the part of Its diplomatic repre sentatives. After a short stay at the French Lega tion, he will proceed to Newport with his children for the benefit or the searair. He will continue there the education of his son, which he has commenced, and is determined to complete unaided.". On the 1st of May last, Consul-General Read, who presided two years ago over the Social Science Congress, held at Albany, N. Y., on behalf of the association Invited M. Prevost Paradol to deliver a course of lectures in the United States. Ills response contains such a fitting expression of his feelings towards ;his country, that we append it, as follows: "Pakis, May 3, 1870. -My Dear Friend :I appre ciate roost highly the very honorable proposition which you have had the kindness to transmit to me, on behalf of the association over which Dr. Samuel Eliot presides, and 1 beg you to oiler him my most sincere thanks. Nothing could have more tempted me than such an occisiuu of testifying to your noble country by word of mouth the feeiings of esteem, sympathy, and friendship which I have so often ex pressed lu writing. Your free Institutions, the ad mirable fortitude with which you have succeeded in maintaining them in thetr Integrity through the hardest trials; the old ties which unite the two nations, and which the future, I hope, will strengthen more and more; my earnest desire to know more of you and to make you better known here; many motives, in 6hort, would have induced me to accept with pleasure the flattering invitation and cordial welcome tendered to me through yju. 'But as 1 told you be'ore, it was settled as far back as two mouths that I was to go to the I'nited States as French Minister, and the probaoillty of that appointment exists still. It Is scarcely neces sary to observe that if I am to go to you In an otttclal capacity, lecturing is out ol tne question. I must, therefore, forgo the aatnipated pleasure of ad- dressing an American uudieuce, and am compelled to decline the honor which the American Social Science Association has tendered me. I shall always, however, cherish this souvenir with grati tude, and I beg of you to say as much to your dls UnguiBhed fellow-citizene. 'Accept the assurance of ray faithful friend ship, Pkevost-Pabadol. 'General J. Meredith Rend, Jr., Consul-Ueneral of the United States for France." Unlets the war cloud which is now lowering over Europe Is dispelled, the proximity of Cuba to our shores Is likely to give riss to complica tions which may render M. Prevost-Paradoi's diplomatic labors rather more Important than there was probability of their being at the time of his appointment. If France goes to war with Prussia and Spain, Cuba will be the most vulnerable point of the latter country, and it is barely possible that an attack upon the Island may render It necessary for the United States to take more fleclded steps than heretofore for the protection "of American citizens and their property. There Is another Important matter which the new Minister will be called upon to Bottle. - The postal service between this country and France has long been in a very disjointed and harassing condition, and the inconveniences suffered by the mercantile communities of both nations have imperatively demanded a reform. Several unsuccessful at tempts at the negotiation of a satisfactory postal convention have recently been made in Farls, by .special representatives .of this country, as it is not the custom for regular ambassadors to meddle with such trifles as post office business. M. Prevost-Paradol, however, has been entrusted by the French Government with full powers to conclude a new postal treaty. In the negotiation of this treaty, the United States will be represented by the Post-mutter-General and not by the Secretary of State, and the new Minister's thorough faml'.i rlty with our language will greatly facilitate the negotiations, a speedy and successful issue to which is desirable on account of the commercial and social Interests of both countries.
