Went to tuo cemetery to pay a tribute to the memory

He had frouirht with biin two "immortelle" crowns,
?Jid aft-r laying one on the toub of Cavalgnae
he went In quest of Hamlin's, but he could not
hud It. so he returned to Caiaignuc s. which
thus had the benefit of the two crowns.
(Laughter.) 1 had not requested M. Qiieutm
to go to the cemetery to ni.ue a speech In his
capacity as editor of the Aetwtt. 1 had aske I
huu to go there professionally and see what was
going ou, in order to give a correct account of what
might take place in the paper; I really don't see
why I should he held responsible because a nunitier
of young fellows asked M. ouentin to say a lew
words over Haudiu's gtave.
President?In the article published In the fle-vC I

disturb the public peace. Answer? Which, by the
way. was not disturbed.
President?Will you trust to what yonr counsel
may urge in your behalf ? Answer?Ves; hut 1 menu
to address the Court, too. if I think fit.
The President then put questions to Gaillard, Sr.
An extract of the examinat on is worth giving, as a
specimen of the way In whicu they manage these
things In France.
President?Gaillard, have yon ever been con
demned ? Answer?Never M. le President.
President?un the 2d of November you went to the
Cemetery of Montmartre v Answer?Yes; 1 went
there with my son.
President?Did you not wear a red cach'twz (com

each n z that I am wearing now; I used II, us I am
using it to-duy, in lieu of a cravat; 1 did not incau
auvihmgby it.
President?It has been noted that though the
weather was not cold both you and your son wore

you had ?0 design in doing so. l)ad you any family

^Lengthened my determination to go there; I go

chanet r 1 admire.
Prcaident-cWell. when you had laid the crown on
tho graye, wny did you not go? Toff-sat down and
read a newspaper. Answer?? es, 1 read La CUtahe;
1 went as 1 told you just now to lay au offering of
flowers on the grave ol? Cavalgnae; 1 waited because
1 knew some friends were coming for the same pur
pose; 1 was seated and reading very quietiv when
some people came up to me aud asked where rau
dio's grave was; as I knew wbere It was 1 really
knew no reason why I enou dn't tell them.
To out the mailer short Halliard admitted that he
went to Haadin's grave, aud seeing a lot oi people

Gaillard. Jr., said he only meant by these lines to
express his oplniou of the riglnus which Haudiu died I

M. tjuentln was asked why he made a speech over
Ftaudln's grave. He explained that alter looking out i
for it and not finding it he sod suddenly come upon i
it. A number of young lellows came up to lilui to
ask him to say a few words. The lollowlng neat

President?What were the words you nttered?

The prosecution views In those facts a previous con

They were ashamed of it, and the friends of liberty
kept the aunuersurv as thai of a day of mouruiug,

Now, without any hair-splitting or mincing mat
ters, I must sty tn.it il we once admit the principle
of prosecuting individuals fur their "intentions,"
tnere can be no doubt but that the conviction ol the
defendants is perfectly Intelligible. There cannot
be the smallest doubt but that all the papers did

While such is the unsettled state of things
throughout the country, discoid reigns among the
chiefs of the revolution. Each is jealous ol tt'C
others. And lroni a dread of losing his popularity
not one ol the leaders ventures to name aud ad
vocate an occupant (at present there are no candi
dates) fur the vacant tluone. It is alleged t .at Gen
eral Prim, unquestionably the foremost of the re
volutionary chiefs, Becretly aspires to t e throne

really entertained) is hopelesi, all .e from the natural
jealousy of the other chicis and ir mi the fact that
there is no great party In inc nation that would sup

As a necessary consequence of this state of affairs
republicanism gains ground. The advocates for tue
abolition of royalty and the eatablisuuieut of a
republic grow bolder every day. Yet this Is simply
the consequence of the present deadlock of affairs.
Every one who knows Spain knows that of all
the possible solutions of the present crta.s the
establishment of a republic is the most
impossible. We do not venture to say
that a republic n ay not be tried; for in revolutions

Education and .Military Training In Swltsnr
A^mhllc meeting recently took place In Berne to
consider the question of eimention. The decision
was voted to recommend the government to intro
duce obligatory gymnastic exercise Into the primary

teen and seventeen, adding to it trolning in military

The Charter Election?The Cww?e*t for the
Mayoralty and Corporation Couaael?The
Vacancy la the Office of Dlotrlct Attorney
aud in the Hapreme Court?The Applicauto
for Appointment?The Aldermaale Content?
The Candidate* for School Comuiiaalonera
and Truntrea.
The clntrter election, which comes off on Tuesday
nest, hao had considerable additional interest and
excitement given to it front the fact that the Mayor
alty Is vacant and the people are called upon to elect
a Chief Magistrate lor one year?the unexpired term
of the retiring incumbent.
The contest lu this regard, however, will lie
tame In comparison with the Mayoralty
contests of past years. The Tammany chieis
in the late election struggle# have so perfectly
and thoroughly disciplined their vast forces, and have
them under auch obedience and control throngh the
host of ortlcc-aeekers aud subalterns In the pay of
the chiefs that to contest a city otllce of such high
trust and power av that of Muvor may be deemed an
entirely futile ail'&ir. The efforts made by the Demo
cratic Union party to nomiuate a citizen from the
democratic ranks that eoul I command any consid
erable aiuouut or democrailc votes and at the same
time be acceptable to the republican party having
ended In failure, that organization may from hence
forth lie deemed defunct as to any claim its present
leaders may put forth for consideration as a political
power in the city. There Ib but cue democ
racy and Tammany Is its prophet. The re
publican party, that they rn ght not be charged
with surrenTerinlfTKo mTmiolpgj power of the city
Into the hnnd9 of their formidable opponents with
out a struggle, have nominated a candidate for
Mayor. Whether they m gnt not have chosen better
were tha chances of success better is hardly worth i
commenting on. Any man was good enough to be |
put in the ring to be knocked down, and certainly
lis victim in this case has taken upon himself the
sacrtlicial lata with commendable coolness and
Tammany selected Its standard bearer from the
highest order of sachems that minister in the
Temple of the Salut-one who ahvayB stood
nearest to the high priest thereof, and to
which high dignity he Is about to be trans
lated, At any timo the present cardtdate
of Tammany would be a formidable opponent, and
under him hts brother Sachems might enter the lists
against much greater forces than can be broughtto
c uiront them at tins Juncture, the party, tlKrt>
