IN IT? (ot H VOL. XV. NO. 153. PHILADELPHIA, THURSDAY, JUNE 29, 1871. DOUBLE SHEET THREE CENTS. FIBST EDITION! TBOCIIU'S DEFENSE. The History of September 4-Artdress Be- lore i ne national Aiiembljr. The following interesting facts, hitherto un known, were brought forth recently by General Trochu Is bis account of the defense of Paris. After referring to the accomplishment by the I'rusRlans of the turning movement, which he dreaded and anticipated. General Trochu said: "The following day, August IT, Hie Empeior sum rooned the generals to a conference, which I at I tended. Ana here begins an unknown chapter In the history of the siege or Paris. Jt mar be neces sary to say tbat I will not mention a single fact for which I have not living witnesses or written proofs, There were present at that conference the Emperor, Prince Napoleon, Marshal MacMahon, General Ber- taillt (In command nf thai Mobile., of t.hn Melnpl. General Schmltz (chief of the stair of the 12th Corps), ana myseir. i mint tnai wnue tne conference was In progress, General de Courson (prefet da Palais) came into the room and remained. The Emperor asked this little council of war what they thongat of the state or ail'alrs, and what was the best thing to be done. Unanimously, and through the channel of Prince Napoleon, wue spoke first with the greatest firmness, and also through me, the council expressed Itself In the following textual terms: The Emperor has abandoned the Govern ment by going to take command of the army at suoh a distance; his Majesty has Jast abandoned the command of the army and given it to Marshal Ba Kalne. lie Is alone at the Camp of Cbalous without any army; de facto be has abdicated both the Gov ernment and the command. Unless his Majesty Vlsties to abdicate altogether he Is bound to resume either tho Government or the command of the army.' Ills Majesty acknowledged that this state ment was In conformity with facts. The councl I added that It did not think It possible for the Emperor to resume the command or the army, nnd therefore that the only course was to resume with a firm Hand the reins of government. This view met with the Emperor's approbation. Jl'nnce Napoleon added that, In order that the Km jperor should resume the reins of p.werln safety, his intention suouia oe noiinea totae ransiau popula tion by a general oillcer, who should precede him and take military ana moral precautions to prepare the public for his Majesty's arrival. Turning towards me, the Emperor asked me would I undertake that mission. 1 replied: "Sire, In the situation so rail or peril In which the country finds itself, a revolu tion would hurl it Into the abyss. All that can be done to avoid a revolution I will do. You ask me to go to Paris to announce your arrival, and to take the command-in-chlef. I will do all that, bat on the dear understanding that the army of Marshal MacMahon will become the army of relief for Paris, 'for we are snre to be besieged.' The Emperor ac quiesced. Marshal MacMahon had previously de clared that that was precisely the duty bis army had to fulfil. This conterence broke np at 11-80, after agreeing to a kind of convention coached in these terms: 'General Trochu, appointed Governor or Paris, and Commander-in-Chief, will immediately start for Paris ; he will precede the Emperor by a few hours. Marshal MacMahon will march on Paris with bis army.' "That night, gentlemen the night from the 17th to ttinlRth I arrlvpd flttiheTullMriert. ftnd wmtitil tn t.ha Empress Regent. I found her rail or firmness, fall S of courage, but excited, and dismasting me. (Sensa tion.) 'General,' saia ner majesty i quote ner words textually 'only the Emperor's enemies could have urged on nlm this return to Paris, lie would not reach the Tullerles alive.' 'Madam,' I replied, 'am I, then, one of the Emperor's enemies? I, wltu Prince Napoleon, Marshal MacMahon, and all the Generals who took part lu the conference at Cha lons, contributed to cause the returu of the Emperor as an act of firmness and manhood, calculated to prevent a revolution. I have accepted the mission, fall of danger for myself, and which certainly my precedents did not enable me to foresee, to come and notify the Emperor's returu to the population of Paris. The army or Marshal MacMahon Is marching cn the capital, and a govern ment or derense is about to be formed to save the country In the frightful crisis in which It finds AS itself.' 'No, General; the Emperor shall not come to Paris; lia will remain at Chalons.' 'But then. Madame, the convention in virtue ot which I have come nere is no good, i ne umperor senas me nere to defend him, and be does uot follow me!' 'You will defend Pans; fulfil your mission without the Kmperor.' And, in fact, gentlemen, I had Ions felt an ardent desire to defend Paris. 1 twas determined to shrink from no sacrluce to do so. 1, therefore, replied, 'Very well, Madame. I will defend Paris without the Emperor; I have brought with me the proclamation in which I desire to make known to the population that I have been appointed Governor and Commander-in-Chief daring the siege. That proclamation begins thus: "In presence of the peril that threatens the country, the Emperor has appointed me Governor of the capital in a slate of Hiege." The Empress here Interrupted me. "General, the Emperor's name must not appear in a proclamation at a time like this.' 'But, Madame, I represent the Emperor. I said that I had come here to defend him. 1 can no. address the population of Paris without refer ring to the Emperor, and saying that it Is by his orders I have undertaken the defense ot the capi tal.' 'No, General. Believe me. In the present state of the public mind there would be serious ob jections to allow this reference to the Emperor.' The name was struck oat," "In the morning I went to the Tullerles. I saw the Empress Regent surrounded by mauy anxious persons, fche herself was perfectly calm. I ad dressed to her these few words: 'Madame, the hour of great dangers has arrived. Strange things are taking plaee here, but this is not a time for re crimination. I remain at my post, bat be assured that the crisis is a serious one, and what I said at the Council the other day will prove strictly true. "I received neither from the War Office nor the jullerles any order, news or notice of an? kind. About one o'clock in the afternoon I saw General Lebteton. the qaesteur of the Corps Leglslutir. I see him here, and he can correct me if my memory proves deceitful, lie tola me: General, the peril is at its height; there is a tremendous crowd on the quay about to break into the house the troops have allowed the mob to break through their lines. You alone, by a personal effort, may perhaps stave the danger off.' I replied, HieneraL I am the victim or an unprecedented situation. In fact, I have no com mand ; I did not order the troops you meutlon to be posted where they were ' Here, gentlemen, I beg to say that I am thoroughly convinced that if I had been in command the case would have been pre cisely the same. (Applause.) I mean to say that I was the victim or a combination, which has given rise to the abominable rumors that have been in circulation about me, and which I should scorn to notice save before my real judges that is, this Assembly. (Applause.) But to proceed. I told General Lebretcn, 'Look here. General, you want me single-handed testop the advance or half a mil lion or men wno are surging up towards tne Assem bly ; and yet you mast know as well as I that it can not be done : but as jou make the demand lu the name ot the Corps Leglslatif, I will attempt the eiiort, though I am well assured or Its failure.' The Hotel de Ville itself was filled with so dense a crowd that it was only by devious ways that I was able to reach a closet, abeut tour times the size of this tri bune, in which the Provisional Government had stationed Itself by the light or a solitary lamp. I I i didn't know whether the men I saw there tor the U first time with the exception or M. J ales Favre, u kism T lial Bfln fltirlnff thA dar wr vealtw 1 usurpers, vultures soaring down on power as a prey: I but they did not look like It. I felt that they and I ( were ex nosed to a grrat peril. One of them said. 'General, In this formidable crisis we are especially 0 anxious that the Government should not fall into the hands 01 tne people in rne next room, (sensa tion. ) Jnst now, taken aback by the suddenness of events, they are assembled, but tbey are not yet armed ; but they will be to-morrow. If you consent to be Minister of War of the Provisional Goverament to morrow, the ofQctrs and soldiers In furls will .ather round vonr name, and there will be some means oi euiorcing iue iucmuiot mm wu.ii uo iK.cn for the nreservaUon of order In Paris.' I replied. I 'Beiore making np my mind It Is my duty to go ta the War Office and acquaint the Minister. 1 who is mv chief, of what is going on here." I went, J and round General Pallkao in his oinoe a prey to in- tew irHf' ha thnuirht that hi. son. a clever voung officer, had been killed at Sedan.

I retaraed to the Hotel de VIHe, where I found the Provisional Government had received during my absence an addition to its numbers in the tterson ot M. Rocfiefort. (Ah, hat and prolonged laughter.) I told the Provisional Government, 'If ion want me to fee of any use at this fearful crisis. 1 aaust be at the head of aifairs. M. J ales Favre U President I most be President In his place.'
