The letters from Paris to tha American
press have some very amusing anecdotes inci
dental to the elections and the declaration of
the empire. We select the following:
A vote wag found in the bor at Melen thus
conceived :
"Etiamti omnes, ego Son."
The mayor, who did not understand the dead
languages, counted this as Out.
The usual number of ccr.tenariang were
wheeled in sick chairs to the polls, and the
customary stories of bed-ridden gentlewen sud
denly smitten wish a desire to serve their coun
try, and told hv the Pays and Patrie. At St.
Etienne, according to the latter authority, the
workmen voted with fears it their eyes—"tears
of happiness and hope."
It rained, continually, as 1 have said, at Pa
ris during the vote. But ths government, which
is never discouraged, sent tne following tele
graphic message to the departments :
*i he operations ot the polls are favored bv
a smiling sky, and the electors have never
displayed such eagerness to profit bv their prt
At Perigneux, after the annountement of tht
result, the people had a
witii the mayor, the priest, and the bust of Lou
is Napoleon at their head. The two former
* an ? 'he 'l'e Dfu/n, while the latter maintained
a diguified silence.
A country mayor, in a speech afitr the elec
tion, mentioned the sudden rise of the Seine as
a proof that nature was with the emperor,
and testified its joy by causing the waters of
the river to swell and to threaten tn over
flow. ihe prefect of Toulouse had alrtatlv
claimed Providence for Louis Napoleon, as the
fine weather clearly testified that Heaven wag
In La Vendee, the peasants, rendered deliri
ous with joy, took a handful of affirmative
votes, set them on fire with a burning glass,
concentrating the rays of the sun, collected the
ashes, put them into a jug of wine, mixed them
up, poured the mixture into glasses, and drank
it with great emotion. The Constilutionnel
says that such a disposition on the part of
the peasants proves that God has at last ta
keu pity upon our misfortunes, and is go
ing to redeem us from tixty years of revo
I need not say, of course, that neither at Pa
ris nor anywhere else were there any printed
Noes to be bad. A printing office in the su«
buros applied for permission to to strike iff a
itw hundred for the accommodation of such as
could not writ#, but it was related.
A letter states that the municipality of Paris
had determined to devote a part of the funds for
the rejoicingg on the occasion to charitablt
purposes. The following notices, posted in
profusion, wili show in what manner:
Ist. The mayor will distribute, on the 2d of
December, supplies of clothing to th« children
who attend the publit infant schouls.
2d. All blankets and mattrasses pawned at
the Mont de Piete tip to the 2Cth of November
mav be withdrawn gratuitously.
3d. Parents who have confided their children
to the Socisty of Nurses, will be acquitted of
half the sums due by them to that establirh
ment on the 26th of November.
A good story ia to!d in reference to the 2d
article. It was first passed with the date 2d of
December, and the news escaped from the Ho
tel de Viile into the streets. It was evident,
therefore, that according to the wording of the
decree, all blankets and mattrasses pledged at
the pawn broker's during the coining week
would be restored next Thursday for nothing.
Evarybody that hud a blunket, prepared to do
without it for a time; and mattrasses com
menced flowing in a steady stream towards the
netrest Poor Man's Friend. The whole Fau
bourg St. Antoine began to take up its bed arid
walk. Hut notice of their proceedings was
speedily tonveyed to tht l'ulace of the City
1- athers. The date was erased, and an tarlier
substituted: according to the uew reading, the
privilege of a gratuitous redemption was only
extended to such bedding material us had been
already mortgaged. The Municipal Council
had nearly committed a laughable and costly
"Spectacles," the Paris correspondent of the
New York Express .gives the following good
hit at the Emperor :
The city of Strusburg has presented its Cha
teau to Louis Napoleon ns an Imperial resi
dence whenever lie goes East. J hey gars it,
City vears ago, to the other Napoleon, und i(
remained the property of the crown till 1831,
when Louis Philippe gave it hack to the city of
tttransburg, as costing more than it came to. —
This «nlucky pitlace, which everybody tries to
get rid c) and nobody wants to keep, will doubt
less be accepted by Louis Napoleon. J*o own
a castle in Strasburg, the scene of his melan
choly fiasco iu ISI3C, would doubtless be balm
upon a sore spot. If the city of I,'otilogt.R had
any royal residence to give, it would doubtless
hasten to offer it with the Chateau of
There is a steamboat landing there, where yo«
