Within the past few weeks the Down tasters have
been astonished by an exhibition of fireworks upon their
hills. From the Scboodic hills, from the Cherryfleld
hills, from BluehUl and from some hills in the vicinity of
this town, perhaps as far west as Montviilo, these signal
or telegraphic lights have been observed. The individual
stationed at Bluchill, halls from New York, and that

He prepares his fireworks at the publio house, and
of two oolors. one of which is blood red, the other a light
color. At night be goes upon the topmost summit of
Bluehill mountain, and watches for a signal from the
east, when he throws up two lights, and is answered by
lights somewhere in this vicinity The gentleman says
the signal has beeu seen for a distance of seventy miles.
May tne inystory not be connected with the flour speculation!
When the Atlantic steamers arrive at Halilax.
these signals may communicate the rise or fall of breadstuffs.
and the intelligence lie thus carried to the magnetic

MR. BFNNETT'S LETTERS FROM EUROPE.
The State of French Kingdom The Policy of
Lonli Philippe?The American Political System?What
will become of France!
Paris, May 22, 1847.
A few days ago, the king and royal family left
the Tuilleries, and took up their residence at the
royal country seat, at Neuilly, near St. Cloud?a
very lovely place, too. This is the signal for
the dispersion of the fashionable people from
Paris. Louis Philippe leads the way, and the
world follows after. The king is now getting
old and feeble, but his talents and intellect are
yet fresh and active. Indeed, Louie Philippe
may be justly considered one of th? -aost remarkable
men in Europe. For seventeen years
he has now governed France in peace and nuietOver
an unruly, ideal, fidgetty population of
nearly thirty-eight or forty millions, he has organised
a permanent government, and given them
many of the elements of prosperity, with some
of decay. This is a work that never wasaccomplished
by the revolution, or the empire, or the
restoration. Napoleon was great in war, but in
nothing else. The old revolution only could
break up and break down. It created nothing.
The restoration attempted to restore the old regime
of priests, monks, women, and coteries. It
failed. Louis Philippe alone has accomplished
the strange work of establishing a permanent
representative government in France, on such
principles only as can be appreciated by the
French people. It is true he has been assisted
by able men in other departments, and in the
management of the Chambers, but 1 cannot resist
the conviction that the king is the master
spirit of the general organization of the present
government, us much in its details, as in its most
The old dynasty lost the crown by their utter
ignorance of the French people of the presentage.
They supposed that they had been restored to
the throne of Louis XIV., but had forgotten that
France had passed through a terrible revolution,
that had left its marks upon the whole race.?
Louis Philippe, when he wus called to the throne
by the aggregate factions that had banished the
Bourbons, in 1830, found the people of France
full of certain general ideas of popular liberty,
but without any real practical knowledge, such
as is possessed in the United States, or even in
England. With great tact and facility of character,
he adapted himself to his position, and
out of this chaos and comparative ignorance, he
has created a system of government which has
given peace to France for seventeen years, and
made for himself a great name as a statesman,
politician, and man of talent. In that long period,
Louis Philippe has had seventeen cabinets,
or modifications of his ministry, but he himself
has always been the leading spirit. A minister
of the highest talents has little influence, unless
he submits to the king and his system. At this
moment, the active government of France may
be said to be concentrated in a triumvirate, consisting
of Louts Philippe, of Duchatel, and of
Guizot. Duchatel is the Ministerof the Interior,
and manages the elections, and the electoral body
?the press, and all the other internal arrangements
on which the Chambers and the public
depend. Gsiizot takes care of the foreign affairs,
and foreign policy, and plays his part with
skill. All the rest of the ministry are merely
second rate men, pins to hide rents in petticoats,
sad are put in snd put out, without any scruple
How has Louis Philippe accomplished all this
in such a country as France? How has he tamed
the French people for seventeen years? How
has he become the Van Amburg of his race and
country, and manages his menagerie so well?
I am persuaded that Louis Philippe has profited
much by his journey to the United States, in
the early part of his life. He travelled in the
United States during that period of its history,
when the organization of the democratic party
was forming, under the genius of Jefferson and
his associations. It is well known that Jefferson
was the first statesman in the ('nited .States who
organised a compact party out of th? popular
masses. This was accomplished by a clue combination
of popular feelings and local organizations
in the several States, all bound together by
?i proper u.sir luuiiun ui pttuuimijc, unu me nuining
of the press. In thai period, the number
of popular voters in the United States
did not much exceed that which Louis Philippe
found in France, when he was elected
as their king. The democratic party was managed
in the United States, by the establishment
of permanent administrative committees
in the several States, who generally were
men of much practical talent. This remarkable
organization of the popular party existed
lor nearly twenty-five years, and through
three double presidencies. It was only broken
down in the time of Monroe, and that principally
by the enlargement of the electoral basis in almost
every State, which had increased from
200,000 to nearly 2,000,00 dcr the presidency
of Jackson, it is well known, that the old
system was attempted to be revived by Mr. Van
Buren, but it was found impossible to manage
the electoral body, which had then grown from
300,000 voters, in 1790, to 3,000,000 in 1840.
Hereafter, in the United States, no r*rt)* ?in k?
permanent, and every Presidential election, so
far as regards the man, will be more or lass accidental.
It is impossible to organize a party to be
controlled by one man, among a ma*a of four or
five millions of voters
I am persuaded that Louis Philippe has drawn
his political knowledge from the I nited States,
and only adapted it to the purposes ofnn elective
monarchy in France; for as yet, the monarchy is
only elective?not permanent. The action of
the political institutions in England is altogether
different from that of France or the United
States. The separate houses of the nobility organize
the elections?corrupt the elections?in!
ffuence the elections?and then combine the
power into two or three large factions in ParliaI
ment. There is no central system, as in France.
I The <]tieen is nominal, and the government is an
Well, then, how did Louia Philippe manage
affairs, on his election to the throne of France,
or the Presidency of the French people! I will
The population of all France consists of about
thirty-six millions of people Of this number, j
there are nearly nine millions of males, all good
dancers, over twenty-one years of age, or of the
same class who would be voters or rifle shooters,
in the United States. Yet, it is an absolute fact,
that out of this immense number of men, over
twenty-on# years of age, there are only 200,000
entitled to vote for the members oi the Chamber
of Deputies, whichisthe principal organ ofthe government
now existing. The Chamber of Peers
is appointed by the king for life, and is only an
appendage of the crown, a sort of a towel tacked
to the royal breeches, but possesses no popular
The manner in which the electoral body is restricted
is curious. No Frenchman enjoys the
privilege of being an elector, who doss not pay
a direct tax of 200 francs a year to the treasury;
and none can be a member of the Chamber under j
paying a direct tax of 500 francs a year. Doth
these taxes are laid by the government, and they
refuse when they choose. Now it happens that
the division of property in France is so great that
the proportion of them rich enough to pay such a
tax, is reduced to the small number indicated?
200,000 out of 9 or 10,000,000, over twenty-one
years of age. The number of families in France,
who only occupy as a freehold, about an average
of eight acres of land, is nearly 4,000,000, representing
a population of nearly 30,000,000. The
number of families who have an income, either
by land, trade, or commerce, in the towns, of
$1,000 to $'2,000 a year, are about 180,000; and
the number who have an income over $2,000,
either by land, or trade, is only 10,000, or
thereabouts. This throws the electoral power in
r ranee, principally imu m? n?w no, auu uniuiig
the merchants, manufacturers, hankers, and very
few large landed proprietors. The great bulk of
the nution, comprising nearly 30,000,000, and
consist ing mostly of the small farmers, and very
small traders, have no voice in the elections at
all, and are entirely disfranchised.
Now these are the naked^facts of the electoral
system on which Louis Philippe has to act and to
organize his government. How does he accomplish
this! What materials has he to work withl
Many and powerful are his materials; and if
he'did not manage France us easily as he does, he
would not be a very able man. I will explain.
The king, or the government, has a civil list,
or a hatch of patronage, amounting to 931,977
places and pensions of all kinds, yielding an income
to the recipients of nearly 400,000,000 of
francs, or $80,000,000a year. All this astounding
mass of patronage is entirely in the hands of the
king, and is managed by the several departments.
Of this number alone, the Minister of
the Interior, Duchatcl, has nearly 120,000 well
paid and fat officials. Here are already nearly
five places in the gift of the government to every
single elector, or his friends. But this is not all.
The regular army and gen* d'armts amount to
r.early 400,000 men, and the national marine to
00,000 more. Here is another half million of
tnan witV, nil tlmir mnnexinns. entirely naid and
in the hands of the government?making in the
aggregate nearly 1,500,000 of men, representing
a population of nearlykstx or eight millions, in
the pay or service of the government, and living
out of the labor of the rest of the nation, who
have no vote, no control, no influence, in the
progress of these things, and are so many white
slaves to the government.
With such materials in his hands, Louis Philippe
must indeed have been a great bungler not
to have organised a strong and permanent government;
and it is a sad commentary on the
folly and ignorance of the elder branch of the
Bourbons, that, in such a position, they made
themselves so unpopular. At this moment
it is alleged that nearly two hundred members of
the Chamber of Deputies are paid officials, and
receive places directly from the^executive. The
whole body of electors, and all their connexions,
are more or less in the pay of the government.
I Vet, with such tremendous means of influence
in the hands of the government, the opposition,
| in a house of -169, or thereabouts, counts 169,
and the conservatives, as the ministerial party is
called, counts 300, of which 50, called the young
conservatives, are now forming a party, or faction
of their own, opposed to Guizot, the organ
of which is the Prtuse, one of the ablest papers
j in Paris. And now, with all the power and influI
ence of the government, it is an astonishing fact
thut almost every journal in Paris, except the
Debats and one or two others, is opposed to the
present government, although not all are opposed
to the dynasty. In the various departments
and provincial towns, the press is more under
the control of the government, or rather of the
Minister of the Interior. There are between
i four and five hundred journals of all kinds pub|
lished in France, the greater portion of which
are political, and in favor of the present dynasty.
But in Paris and in the large towns there is a
strong opposition to the government and the dynasty,
although it is kept in subordination by
the September laws, the police, and the vast
masses of military. The immense agricultural
population do not manifest any strong political
development. Ap compared with the sturdy and
intelligerit farmers of the 1'nited States, they
are utterly ignorant and imbecile. Fven in Paris
and the large towns, political knowledge is
very scarce. The lending idea they have ol effecting
any political change is by a revolution?
by lighting in the streets; not by a slow process
of growth and development.
The policy of Louis Philippe and the present
ministry, seems to be to preserve, with the aid
of the army, the present system of government,
by opposing all electoral reform, and all organic
changes in the action of its elements. As long
as they have only 200,000 electors, with 090,000
places and pensions to give away, and half a million
of soldiers and sailors to control the towns,
rhey cannot fail to produce order and peace over
all France. Yet, in process of time, the em
ployment of such a large proportion of the population,
to keep in order the rest, will lead France
into the same condition which now afflicts Ireland.
Only think of8,000,000 living in idleness,
nnd.feeding upon the industry of the other28.000, 000!
Such a state of society and government is,
under a different name, almost the same as that
which existed in France from the age of Louis
XIV. to the terrible outburst of the revolution of
1790; and it is possible that a second edition of
that event may yet murk the history of France,
before the termination of the present century.
I he whole press of Paris almost is now crying
out against the terrible corruption of the
Chambers?the avarice of public men?the dis
graceful conduct at elections, and the shocking
enormities of the politician*. Louis Philippt
himself, and Guizot, perchance Duchatel, an
generally admitted to be pure in morals, elevatec
above the herd of the day ; but a)l the statesmer
and politicians of France are acknowledged tc
be the most corrupt and mercenary in Europe
Political corruption, as it is called, is the verj
system of the existing government in France,
and it is of a shade deeper and more shamelest
than ever can exist in England or the Unitec
States. Indeed, the only way in which a popular
government can be made comparatively pure
and honest, is the principle of universal suffrage
Into a popular vote of four or five millions, nc
party or faction can introduce corruption sufficient
to affect the mass. It is like an attempt tc
sully the ocean by throwing into it a bucket ol
dirty water. But universal suffrage in France 01
England, even an extension of the suffrage in
the former of 2,000,000 votes, would almost, il
nut entirely, upset and put an end to the present
| dynasties of both. Ilence, in both countries, the
I strong opposition made to uny extension of the
i elective franchise.
i In France, no other system of government
could exist for a month, but the present one,
which is composed of equal proportions of military
despotism and official corruption. It is true
the press has a certain ideal liberty ; but it never
can lead to any practical result under the present
regime. The whole Parisian press has not the
slightest influence on the Chamber of Deputies.
M. Guizot can remain minister, and control a
majority, as long as the King chooses to keep
him. Persoually, Guizot is the most pure, almost
the only pure statesman in France. He may,
indeed, tell that which is not strictly true in the
tribune ; but lying is talent in European politics.
He will not sully his name with bribes, places,
or pensioners?in fact, he is only half a Frenchman
in politics. #
nt..?v..j.M /JiaMirh ths nresent government, or
the repose of France, but some terrible popular
' insurrection in Paris, which may infect the military
and the civil legions in the pay of the government.
It was a defection of this kind which
caused the revolution of 1830. Such an event is
not likely to take place in the life time of Louis
Philippe, who is cautious, cunning, and eminently
discreet in all his conduct. He will never
venture upon any coup d'etat, as his predecessor
did. Yet Louis Philippe is not populur, except
among those whom he controls. Whenever he
goes out, he drives like the devil, and is surrounded
with quantities of picked guards. He
is almost a state prisoner in his palaces. His
power over ths French mind is intellectual.?
They submit to what they believe to be his superior
energy and talent. But at his death, strange
times may take place. His successors will be the
Due de Nemours, as Regent, and his grandson,
the Count de Paris, a boy of nine years of age, as
King. The first thing that will take place, on the
death of the King, will be a breaking up of the
factions in the Chambers und a contest among
the different leaders. The press and the popular
impulses will then come into play, and no one
can calculate the result. Already a party is forming
to give the Regency to the Duchess of Orleans,
the mother of the heir-apparent, and to
take it away from the Due de Nemours. If the
Orleans family divide and form different factions,
they are gone forever, and France will have
another revolution. Nemours, himself, is very
unpopular, and has already given strong indications
of returning to the ideas and customs ol
llic ruin uuuiuuiir. aac id aucuiimug ictih
and re-organize a court circle on the plan of the
last century, and has already prescribed the dress
which is to be worn at his balls. This is laughed
at in all the talons of Paris, and ridicule is a terrible
and efficient weapon in French politics.?
In fact, the present dynasty, the existing government
in France, is only provisional, or temporary.

The Annual Cherry Party on Randall's Island.
?It has boen the custom every year since Randall's
Island has been in possession of the city authorities, for
the Commissioner of the Alms House to invite the
members of the Common Council, aud a limited number
of guests besides, to go up and partake of the products
of the cherry trees which abound on the island.
Yesterday morning, at half-past eleven o'clock, six
beautiful stages, each drawn by four horses, and filled
with ladies and gentlemen, started from the office of the
Commissioner of the Alms House, in the Park, and after
a pleasant drive of about an hour, stopped at the foot ol
122d street. There the party embarked on board a large
scow, and several smaller boats, and were soon landed on
1 Randall's Island. The company consisted of ladies aud
gentlemen, in about equal numbers, perhaps 100 in all,
who. Immediately on'arriving at the house of the keeper
of the Ialand, Mr" Shay, began to eat cherries In earnest.
Basket after basket of the delicious fruit was disposed
of, and the guests were all satisfied. It was then proposed
to take a walk to the grove, and the company set
out under escort of Mr. Leonard, the commissioner ol
the Alms House, who was captain of the expedition, and
upon whose Invitation the guests had assembled.
On arriving at the grove It was at once made apparent
that preparation had been made for a more substantial
repast than the cherries afforded. Two long tables were
extended under the trees, which, though not yet spread,
gave token of the good time that was coming. At a side
table, a liberal supply ef lemonade and punch,offered an
invitation to parched lips and dry throats,that was by no
At about two o'clock, several loads of substantiate,
sueh as beef alamode, boiled hams, tongues, bread and
butter, strawberries and milk, salads, he. lie , wert
brought upon the ground and placed on ths aforesaid
tables, and the company sat down to their repast. Ths
invigorating breeze, and the walk from ths ferry, added
to the ride out from the city, had given such appetites
as made the appearance of the viands very agreeable ?
The game of knite and fork was soon engaged in with
great activity, and the grove was made to ring again and
again with the merry laugh of the fair vieitauts, who enjoyed
the thing wonderfully, and, by their life, gave a
zest to the whole affair, which it would hardly have
possessed but for their, presence. Bef>re the
company had finished their dinner, certain watchful
ones observed t at some knowing ones were
making off towards the eastern shore of the Island, with
sundry loaves of bread under their arms. An ox-teaui
had some time previously gone the same road with a load
of clams, and that circumstance, added to the mysterious
movement of the bread, was an unmlstakeable indication
that a clam-bake was about to come off ; In fact
an intimation to this effect had previously been given,
and now it was ho ! for the clam-bake! The ladies were
as eager for this sport as tbeir companions of the sterner
sex, and it followed quite naturally that some pretty tall
walking was performed between tbe site of the dinner

k every little mishap of the hind only furnished occasion

was at an end, the party prepared for their return
' to town. The river was recrossed, and the guests took
* their seats iu the stages, which conveyed them up. All
i was in readiness, anil some of the drivers, proud of their
1 respective teams, and determined to try their mettle.

of the rival 'busses of course took a deep interest In the

< being used by some of the passengers in one of the vehiI

Farmers' Ci.ur, Tuesday June d!).?This being the
regular meeting day of the Farmers' Club, the members
assembled In more than usual strength, from the fact of
the Hon. Dixon 11. Lewis, the Senator from Alabama
having accepted the invitation of the club to witnesa
its proceedings Col. Clark being called to tho chair, an
article was read by the Secretary on the longevity of the
onion, the truth of which was illustrated by the savory
1 vegetable being found in the hand of a female Kgyptiau
mummy, after an entombation of 9000 years, retaining
not only its primitive perfume, but all its inherent elements
of vegetation, when transplanted to its mother
earth. The article was headed, " The Longevity of the
Onion," reminding us of the historical fact of the t'.gyptian
idolatry of this odoriferous esouleut, as well as the
modern hcmage bestowed open It by a popular ?nitinitr
In the following attractive couplet
" This 1* every cook'a opinion?
No savory dish without an onion. ?'
i The Seoretary read the programme of the twentieth annual
fhlr, which will be held at Caetle Garden on the
6th of October next. All articles intended for exhibition
1 aro to be deposited on the first or second day of that
month, at farthest The National Convention of Farmer*T
Agriculturists, Gardeners, Ice., will take place at
that time; also the annual ploughing match By a
communication from Mr. Lodge, and an accompanying
specimen. It was ascertained that the cherry bug hod
been causing havoc among the apples, and recommended
lime-water or tobacco jnlce as a remedy The business
of the meeting had so far extended when the lion. D.
H. Lewis was announced, and entered the club room,
when a communication was read, to the effect that Mr.
Burchard would deliver, on the first Monday iu September.
a lecture before the American Institute, on the
subject of Agriculture. The chairman requested Mr
Lewis to give the club his views on Southern Agriculture,
in wbioh the Senator acquiesced, although, as he
remarked, unprepared with any particular digest lie
impressed, from his own experience, the necessity of
deep ploughing. His soil was a deep blaok, which had
produced, for twenty years, a rich succession of corn
crops, by which he acquired from 60 to 70 bushels per
acre, and when shallt w ploughing was adopted, averaged
only from 30 to 40 He generally ploughed from nine to
ten inches, and with, sub-soil, to the depth of sixteen
inches, for ths purpose of breaking up the lower soil,
but not throwing It up The crop Ts worth from 23 to
M) cents a bushel. This system is cow generally adopted
on the Mississippi. The Senator recommended deep
ploughing also for cotton, as calculated to dry the land.
He described the tap root of cotton as penetrating two
feet. The prosperous growth of cotton is regulated by
the land, by an observance of which, an experienced
planter can be guided as to the proper soil. Mr. Lewis,
as well from his perusal of the remarks of Fetsoles, as
from his own experience, advocated a searching analysis
of ad the component parts of the plant, seed, fibres.
Sic. As a manure, the seed was most valuable, and
equally profitable as an oil, and enforced the necessity of
the application of chemistry to the practical uses of
agriculture, in the course of his remarks, Mr. Lewis
BMbVU UO ffUUlU piVIOl ICklBlUg VVt U BV 4U UCUIS, bU
the cultivation of cotton at six or Keren cents. He
described cotton as a good manure for Indian corn,
operating similarly to the oil cake. From eleven to
twelve hundred is a good cotton crop. Mr. Williams
offered to analy/.e the stalk if iMr. Lewis would forward
the material, a request which the Hon. gentleman
promptly acceded to. t'ol. Clark herevacated thechalr,
to which Mr. Lewis succeeded, when Mr. Fleishman continued
his remarks upon his travelled experience in foreign
wool regions, illustrated by charts, containing minute
drawings of various qualities of wool, their properties
and classifications. A curious fact was here developed
on the increasing quantity of wool-hairs in proportion
to the excellenoy of the breed or cross?a country
sheep, upon one square inch, possesses 6000 hairs. The
improved breed by a merino sire and country sheep, for
the 3d and 4th generation, produces 18.000 wool hairs to
the square inch; in the 10th generation the fine wool
predominates till the 20th generation, when the wool
hairs amount te 27,000 to.tbe square inch. Mr. Fleishman
warmly advocated a convention of wool growers, in
which he was universally sustained, and it was the general
desire of the members that facts of such high importance
as be developed upon the cultivation of sheep,
should be presented to the public eye in a more useful
and permanei^ form, that could reach universal consideration
and airoption through the medium of the press.

to the station house, together with an old woman,
who laid by her side in a beastly state of intoxication.?
Medical aid was procured by the teuder-hearted Captain
Tilly, and. after a few hours, the poor child was sufficiently
restored so as to be able to relate a small portion
of its history. She stated that her name was Ann
Maria Kennedy, and left Albany on Saturday
last in company with her mother, and upon
landing from the steamboat in New York, she
strayed from her mother, and was picked up by this old
woman, who was found drunk by her side, conveyed to
various parts of the city, aud finally a dose of brandy,
or some other intoxicating liquor administered to the
poor child, which in a few minutes lulled her off into a
state of insensibility, when she was found by the abovo
officers. All the child's good clothing was stolen, and
some old rags instituted in their place. This was done
evidently by the old she devil, who made the child
drunk, on purpose to steal the clothing to sell, in order

It will be perceived that the net income has fluctuated
very much from year to year, while the dividends
have advanced from six to eight per cent. The average
for the last six years has been six and a half per cent
The net inoome for the six years amounts to about one

the same period, showing that the annual expenses
amount to nearly one half of the anirual receipts. The

Compared with the quotation* current on the S 1st of
May it will be perceived that those for June 99th exhibit
In many instances an improvement, but compared with
prices ruling on the 14th of June there has been a falling
off of several per cent In several of the soundest securities.
We do not know what to attribute this depredation
to, unless to the dull season of the year and the ab<
nence of many operators. The easy state of the mo'
ney market and the reduced rate of interest, are ex<
treraely favorable for an advance in quotations fur all
kinds of stock securities, and it Is the prevailing Impresi
aion, that upon the opening of the fall trade there will
be a very Important improvement in the market value of
| Onr State and railroad stocks are steadily improving
in real value. All of our public works have this season
been exceedingly productive, and there is every probability
of their continuing so until the cloee of navigation
shuts up all the principal sources of supply. The
financial condition of all the States owning public works
will be very much improved.and the bonds^suoh States
i ts Pennsylvania and Ohio, will hereafter command bet,
tor prices in the market, and the prompt and full pay|
ment of interest on their debts willlbe placed beyond a

prices ruling for all kinds of breadstuffs and provl
slons, cannot but exert a favoranie innuence upon tbo*#?

High price* not only bring out every bushel of the surplus
of former crop*, but they give a wonderful impetus
to production; and we have no doubt but that in the
State* of Indiana and Illinois, thousand* upon thousand*
of acres of land have this year been improrod and brought
under culiration from this cause, which would otherwise
hare remained uncultivated and comparatlveljunproducllvw
formuny years. It will therefore be seen tnat ft season
like the one just passed, not only adds at once immensely
to the wealth of the country at large, but produce* results,
the good eifect of which is felt for ever after. The
population of our Western States must,with existing Inducements
to cultivate the soil, increare with greater
rapidity than has ever heretofore been realised. Within
the past three mouths more than one hundred thous
ind foreigners, principally Germans, have been landed
upon our shores, most of whom are bound for the Western
Slates, where land is cheap, and the harvests immense.
An influx to this extent for a Tery few years,
will lilt up Indiana. Illinois and Michigan, and Increase
the quantity of land in those States under cultivation, a

of first rate land for sale In each of the above named
