Suspicion and Tekr In France, j
., The able and intelligent -correspondent.. of , the
tandon Leader collects certain facts which 'would
go to prove that France is anything but satisfied
with the project of the Empire. He vvrites: !
The attitude of the population1 begins to cause
some uneasiness to Bonaparte and his adherents.
All the rigorous measures of December ' are" re
sumed.. In every department persons confined
to certain districts (intemds) are suddenly torn
from their houses and deposited , on the frontier,
if not transported to Algeria. Fresh arrests are
taking place in Paris and . in the . provinces. A
number of workman, suspected of more than
- commonly ardent republicanism, are driven out of
Paris. Numerous domiciliary visits take place in
the towns and villages. We are living under the
loitles inspect of 1793. The other day the house
of Pilhes was absolutely beseiged, because it was
Overcome by iich jrincely generosity, the proud ;

. .We ought to reihmd our readers, by way of
comment upon this letter, that Napoleon, the son . ;
of Jerome, resembles the Emperor more than any '
of the family, and is not destitute of abilities. No j
man spoxe more irankly or more in temperately
than he of Louis Bonaparte, even in Paris, after
the coup d'etat. He has now been reconciled to
the President, but never intimate. It is to be
hoped, however, that when Louis Bonaparte has
run his course, France will be sick of all Bonapart
ism and Bonapartes. ; ;

The Bonapartes and Louis Napoleon.
The correspondent of the English papers inti
mate that the Bonaparte family, are not entirely
pleased with the imperial pretensions of Lquis
Napoleon... One of them says:
"Two days ago the ex-King Jerome, as a Pres
ident of the Senate, gave a dinner to the whol? of
the ministers still in Paris, when the conversation
turned as a matterfof course on the great topic of
the day the re-establishment'qf the empire, and
the plan to be adopted with respect to the heredi
tary succession. "The empire cannot be consti
tuted without me, I am the presumptive heir to
the throne. I am very anxious for the establsh
ment of the empire, and I am quite willing to come
after the President; but on the conditions on
which the empire is, to be. established, I do not
wish for it . The empire, without glory, and with
out constitutional liberty, cannot have any dura
tion. ' ' - - .!.--..,,'
: Another of these writes: "I knowfor a positive
certainty that M. Napolean Jerome (son of old
King Jerome) is endeavoring to take up a serious
position in the ranks of democracy. He insinu
ates himself everywhere; at ona time with a par
don or commutation of punishment in his hand, at
another with ths offer of a situation to some starv
ed recreant democrat; to all with complimentary
words of condolence. His father, too; taking ad
vantage of his official position, and of the immense
authority which his rank and name give him, per
haps one may fairly say his lionhomie also, pursues
the programme with perfect consistency-.
Every one remarked his quasi-republican speech
of the city. It will be a larger building than- any
ever erected in our country, and will contain, on
its ground floor, 1 1 1,000 square feet of space, and
in its galleries, which are 54 feet wide, 62,000
square feet more, making a total area of 173,000

Suspected Poisoning and ParrlcUlc
- Terrible Disc efures.
Our neighbors of the Looking Glass Prairie
have been thrown into the most serious alarm and
excitement, for the last few days, by reason of
recent disclosures, affecting the character of two
of its citizrns. . - ..-.-
As we are informed, the facts are briefly these.
Mr. G. and wife, lately residing about six miles
north-cast from. Lebanon, were suddenly taken

They were., respectable farmers, sharing a family
cons;stin j of three, children, the eldest a daughter
of about 15 years of age. , Mrs. G. died within
two davs after the attack, seemintrlr laboring un
der an attack of fatal cholera. . Mr. G. recovered;
but soon after being-somewhat indisposed, hi
eldest child, the daughter, prepared some gruel at
his request.'- Of this he ate, and immediately was
seized with violent pains, accompanied by insa
tiate thirst and vomiting. ' - -' -: ' ' !
; hMr. G..'! rapidly grew' worse, a physician was
called in,, who prescribed for the cholera. In the
eonrse of few days Mr. G. also- died. The or
phan children, including the daughter, were then
removed to. Ohio, from which state ths family
had originally emigrated, about eight years
since. -' - -' ' -' .;-' --.'-'
At the time of tiro death of the parents no sus
picion of foul play was- excited. - Sice howev
er, the conduct of the daughter has led to tff sus
picion that she poiscmed both her parents. - -i
It seems that she wasi coarted by a young mn,
to whose attention the parents objected. Their
opposition to the young man was based upon his
bad character, and went so &ra to. iuienlict all
communication between the lovers. To remove
tbia obstacle- to their wishes, it is suspected that
the young girl consented to and committed the'
horrible crime of, parricide. : . . - ,
