The History of September 4-Artdress
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
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
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

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

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
