FRIDAY MORNING.JUNE 23, 18G5.
PEN PICTURE OF THE LEADER OF THE
FRENCH CONSTITUTIONAL QUESTION.
[Paris Correspondence London Times.]
One day in the early part of the summer of
1K46, M. Thiers was seeu in a box of the ball ring
of Madrid, which probably he then visited for
the first time. He was accompanied by two or
three of hia countrymen, one of whom was the
military attache to the French embassy in that
capital. From his manner and conversation, he
seemed to be struck with a spectacle which for
him probably had all the charm of novelty—the
picturesque costumes of the attendants the quaint
ceremonial, the vast multitude, composed of ail
classes, from the highest to the lowest, from the
grandee to the majo; the noise, the wit. the re
partees of the Madrid manolas. tnd all the pride,
»and circumstance of the Tauro-machia
o the utmost advantage. Hut when the
ground was cleared, the key dropped by the chief
magistrate, who presided, into the cap of the
matador, and the bull, a magnificent ani
mal, bounded Into the ring, and stood
gazing with dilated eye on the shooting
multitude, tearing up the dust and lashing
himself into lury, and preparing to rush at the
hotseman. who, with long lance In hand stood be
fore him; the picture was perfect, and M. Thiers
could not help sharing the admiration which it
called forth. This Moon changed. When the first
act was over—that is, when the first bull was
killed—lie felt as every one does whom habit has
not hardened to the sight. He expressed to those
near him his horror of the saDguinary sport, and
ol the cruelty with which bull and horses were
treated, and the danger to which the* fighters
were exposed, all the more senseless, he added, as
bull-fighting did not makeHpaniards more valiant
in the field. Ills arguments weie unanswerable,
and as they were expressed as M. Thiers only cau
express them, they apparently made a strong im*
pression on his auditors. This impression lastsd
during the interval between the first and second
act,but no longer; for at the next display of
force, by the second bull in killing his horse out
right at the very lirst blow, or of mill by the
picador in planting ins lanceneau tun tnreo
inches iu his shoulder, and the shouts which hail
ed it, the new-made converts to humanity aposta
tized, and they applauded and shouted like the
most hardened amateurs. They, indeed, admitted
the truth of all that M. Thiers said, bnt the old
habit was too strong for them, aud his eioqueuce
left no trace behind.
During the • liree hours that M. Thiers spoke
the other day in the Legislative Corps on a sub
ject so dry as the Budget, you might have heard
a feather drop. All, friends and foes, deputies
and strangers, government commissioners aud
opposition, hung upon his words ; they could no
more speak or move than if they were under the
spelt of the enchanter. The last time bnt one
that he addressed the house was upon the address,
and the impression lie made was far from favor
able. He advocated an Austrian alliance as in
dispenssble to France: he scouted the idea of un
united Italy, and as, tn his famous historical ro
mance ou the empire, he justified his hero in
most if not all of what he did and blamed those
who resisted him, so he thought that the division
of the Peninsula into petty states was just aud
proper, because it favored the policy of France.
In the debate on the finances, a day or two ago,
it was quite different. He seemed to carry every
body with him, and at the close of his speech
an observant eye might drtect even the very
occu| ants of the official benches beguiled
into forgetfulness and joining in the gen
eral applanse, though they may have anx
iously turned round to nee whether anybody
caught then in flagrante. M. Thiera rarely at
tains the liigheat (light of what is called oratory.
He either does not care to do ao or cannot do ao.
There is nothin? iolty, or emphatic, or paaalon
ate.or declamatory in him. Ilia words, his tone
and manner are thoso used in ordinary converse,
and are admirably suited to every-day questions
like the present. He has wit athii fingers' ends,
and gklvanizea even arithmetic with it. His
comparison of the ordinary and extraordinary
budgets to the overladen ship obliged to transfer
a part of her cargo to a smaller vessel alongside,
aud then lighten herself to get into pirt; and hla
division ol the financial comedy into live acta.were
worthy of Beaumarchais. H. Thiers may not be
eloquent in the ordinary sense of llie word; hia
force is in what the French call causerie, bnt
it is a causerie ol which one can never hear
enough, so replete is it with life, ao voluble,
sparkling, varied by historical allusions, always
appropriate, and anecdotes marvellously to
the point. Hia voice, shrill, slightly uasal,
and Southern in acccent, penetrates every
corner of the chamber. There is nothing em
phatic or theatrical in his gesture. He now and
then button*, up his coat and folds his arena,
unbottons aud throws it back from his (fliest, or
loans familiarly on his desk, with his chin rest
ing on his hand. He hardly ever refers to a note.
No French speaker I have ever heard has more
appearance of sincerity and conviction than M.
Thiers. The quality of supreme self-confidence
which SIdoey Smith ascribed to a celebrated
Kngiish statesman still living, seems especially to
apply to M. Thiera. A well-known writer, no
friend of-liis, put this, some twenty or thirty
years ago, in a strung manner. “ Propose to M.
Thiers,” said Simon:
“The command of an army, and he will not re
fuse it; and I declare I am not quite sore that he
would not win battles. I swear to you that I have
heard with my own ears general officers so in
fatuated with him as to declare they would will
ingly serve under his orders.”
And of his power of persuasion
“Another time he will go right np to Soult. and
have the hardihood to tell him that he did not
evacuate Genoa with hia army by the French
gate, hut by the Italian gate; aud if Soult hap
pened to be woueded at the battle of Salamanca
he will maintain, which the Chamber applaud*,
that it was in hia left leg, aud not in hia right, aa
Soult himself thought up to that moment, and
he will prove it so clearly that the old General,
to he sure of the fact, involuntarily puts his flngef
into the wounu._
From the Petersburg News.
CLEMENT C. CLAY.
In a close casemate wltbin the hot wall of an
exposed fortification, cut off from all iutercourae
with the outer world debarred from all commu
nication witb a large circle of friends, and chief
among them her whose highest ambition is to
be thought worthy of the honored and honorable
uame she bean, without |>en or paper, or any ap
pliance or convenience of civilized life, with no
companions save two armed men who are wear
ing a pathway on the yielding tluor of the cell,
as with unpitying eyes they keep nubroken watch
over their charge, stands to-day as noble a soul
as ever tenanted a human form—a modest, chival
rous, upright, gallant gentlemau—Clement C.
Clay, of Alabama.
When the President, uuder information which,
no doubt, was conceived by him to warrant the
charge, published to the world bis suspicions of
Mr. Clay's complicity in the assassination of Mr.
Lincoln, the charge-ex cited only a smile on the
lip of any who knew him. They would aa toon
have suspected den. Lee of duplicity, or Benja
min F. Butler ol magnanimity.
Mr. Clay heard of it while stopping in the coun
try many miles out of the path or the moving
forces, and might easily have made his escape,
but no such purpose ever crossed his mind. With
the promptness of conscious innocence, he wait
ed lor no detectives or hunters of blood money,
but at once reported himself to the nearest Uni
ted States officer, by a note claiming only that lie
should at once be put upon his trial, and con
fronted with kis accusers.
Since that time more than a month has elapsed.
He has been tried, elaborately is he not to
be contronted with his accusers 1 ror weeks on
weeks tne Star Chamber has been trylug lnm,
and filling the public ear with a catalogue of
falsehoods, amusingl.' beadej " Testimony,"
whose object it is in part to taint hia name and
imperil hia life, yet be is not allowed to approach
these perjurers by a nearer interval than that
which aeparates Fortress Monroe from Washing
ton—he bsi no counsel—he examines no wit
n eases—he cross-examines no perjurers—he ia
furnished with no copy of the indictment even,
and it is reserved for a friend of fair play in a
foreign country to point out to the world the In
rftnyot the instrument by which thie judicial
murder is sought to be consummated. A detailed
account of conversations held by Mr. Clay with
the witness (Meritt) in last February, turns out,
by the evidence of this foreign editor, who glvee
dates and refers to public registers for confirma
tion, not only to be false, but impossible, Mr.
Clay not haviDg been in the city where the con
versations are said to have taken place, either in
February, or in January, or in Mnrcb, or in April
last.
With the peculiar constitution of the Court
which, under pretenc* of trying the murderer of
the President Is arraigning the Southern people,
no one expects either the proceeding or the re
sult* of lawful investigations, least of all when
as is unfortunately the case In this Instance, they
undertake to Institute inquiries iuto the guilt of
the unarraigned aui the absent, bat we appeal
from this extraordinary tribunal to the candor,
humanity and love of justice of a free people —
Powerless now to demand his rights, and scorn
ing to beg a favor, it is the duty of all who feel
and deplore the injustice that Is done this trne son
of the South to make the claim for him.
If there is the faintest shadow of excnae for
the charge against him, let him be at once tried.
The Courta are open, the witnesses in Washing
ton, the accused in prison. The Government
ought to desire a speedy trial—the accused ur
gently demands it.
if he should die lu his dnngeon before trial, if
will be au ineffaceable blot upon our country and
our time. Men will remember how. under the
very guns of the Fortress where he is conflnej,
