9afp" The latest nows from France
indicates that the Infidels and Level
lers have destroyed the Louvre, the
great re lository of art for years, and
the Tuillcries, the grand palace of
Kings and Emperors. These two
noble and grand edifices, the pride of
the Parisians and France, and the ad
miration of the world, have been
burnt by the demons of exasperated
fury. Great God, where will they
stop ?
JC6T* By the recent census taken of

to Jive members of the House of Dele
gates, instead of six as heretofore.
