French Republicanism. Tb« rooent elections In France liave shown results singularly tavor able for republicanism. Tho working classes have gono almost a body to tho polls, and have given their suffrages for equality and freedom. Notwithstanding all tho efforts of the monarchists, the priests and ul tramontanes, they were able to influ ^|poe scarcely one-tenth part of the whole vote ef tire city of Paris. The only contest al the election lay be tweeu the moderate ropublioabs, ref resefftea by ^rfcsttofil'TSIers, and tho radical party, led by Gambetta. The latter triumphed by a very con siderable tnajoi ity. It seems to liave been almost equally successful in the provinces, and wo may safely assurno that for tho futuro Franco will take its place among tho progressive na tions, and that neither tho intrigues of royalists or imperialists nor the disastrous influence of tho papal pol iticians will bo able to turn tho French pcoplo»from their resolution to reform aud perfect their now re public. Gambetta, it is stated, is au ardent advocate of education, of the cultivation and industry, and tho pu rification of the national morals. Wo may trust that he is also tho friend of peace. IIo is said to be a man of simplo habits and of extreme hones ty and if lie aud his followers aro ablo to load on their fellow-country mon into tho new path of simplo re publicanism—if they can aehicvo that victory over themselves which so fow French reformers have ever yet at tained, and resist, liko Washington or Jefferson, tho temptations aud the opportunities of power—they may confer on Franco such signal benefits as patriots so delight to bo stow. What Franco most wants is some bold and honest intellect, to tell its peoplo their faults to subdue their national vanity, which a Thiers was onco tho first to inflame, and even a Gmzot to Hatter to call them to re pent of their barberous taste for warfare, and of that overbearing temper that led them to an unpro voked assault upon Germany. To assure them that tho evils they now suffer they themselves caused, and that it is tho part of truo greatness to learn wisdom from misfortune to urge them to abandon forever their dream of military supremacy in Europe, disband their army, destroy' their navy.gand give all their labor to internal reform. During the siege of Paris, it is said, a Huguenot min ister, with that fearless integrity which has always marked tho follow ers of Farel and Lefovre, ventured to offer this unpalatable counsel to his countrymen. He assured tho Parisians that tho guilt of their war upon Germany, so wholly without a cause, must yet bo atoned for. In the midst of an enraged pffople, suf fering under tho privations of tho German invasion, ho demanded their repentance and atonement. His voice was unheard, perhaps silenced, in the cry for vengeance. Yet it is possible that from tho Huguenot ele ment of the population, now permit ted for the first time in threo centu ries to hold a national synod, may come the future statesmen of France and the commencement of a purer career with French politicians. To be as honest as a Huguenot" was a proverbial phrase of tho seventeenth century, before tho Huguenots had been suppressed by bitter persecu tions. It is such a class of politi cians that Franco and all other na tions need. No country has suffered such a ceaseless train of woes and disasters from unscrupulous rulers and unpat riotic priests as France. Nor has any other such a pressing occasion for a complete chango of policy. Its reform must reach to the base of so ciety. It must denounce, as forever ruinous, those ideas of conquest and glory which have been inculcated by three centuries of Bourbons and Na poleons. It must show tho people that the school house is more noces sary than tho irtJn clad, aud an army of accomplished teachers moro valu able than all tho hosts of the empire. It will make education, labor, and integrity the fouudation of a now France. It will dismiss the soldier to the plow or the factory, disarm its worthless navy, and strive to amend by rigid economy the privations and poverty of the people. Nor is such a reform altogether hopeless or Uto pian in Frnuco. It is tho mostcUei.r ing ualt iu ih? rpcwut Chronidc. the industrious classes have assumed control of society that the work ingmen have gone in unusual num bers to the polls that tho voting was conducted with raro good order that even Gambetta urges modera tion and obedience to tho law. If the better element of the French population can be brought into pow er, with no desiro except to do jus tice, and no wish but to relorm the nation—if tho industrious and pru dent can maintain a rule over the frivolous and the indolent—We may at feast^btain a new France, and tho reform that was cmtiod three cen turies ago by priests and kings may at length bo perfected. Tho latest revolution in French politics, tho resignation of Thiers and tho election of a military official to the Presidency of a great nation, by no popular vote, but solely by the choice of an Assembly which has long ceased to represent tho will of tho peoplo tho deep and overruling excitement of tho vast republican majority in Paris, and probably throughout all Franco tho apparant triumph of the monarchial taction, and its evident purposo of resorting to extreme measures—may seem to throw a now cloud upon tho hopes of those who had wisliod well to tho French republic. That this act of the Assembly was dono iu dofianco of the recent olections, and in scorn of the wishes of the nation, is plain. A McMahon and a DeBroglio can have no sympathy with tho honest working classes of their country. Even in tho corrupt Assembly the majority for tho reactionist was ex ceedingly small. Yet wo still believe that the republic will bo peacefully inaugurated, and tho priests, mon archists, and Napoleonists disappoint ed iu their plots against freedom.— Harper's Weekly. The following was among tho As sociated Press dispatches last weok It is said Henry Ward IJeeclier has boon so much annoyed by sharp oriticisms in somo of the daily journ als on the action of Thoodoio Tilton as a witness to tho famous.retraction of Uowen's charges, that ho has re solved to como to Tilion's defense. After consulting with several friends, ho prepared a statement exonerating Tilton from all blame in tho connec tion with which his name was asso ciated. Mr. Beecher wrote a statement this A. M. which refers to Tilton's ac tion as that of a friend who desired to re unite Bowen aud Beec'aer.— Mr. Claflin was, it is said, instru mental in bringing about the retrac tion which bears the signatures of Beecher, Bowen and Tilton. Tho retraction, it is said, was drawn up by £amuel Wilkinson, business part ner of Mr. Beecher, and after it was signed, the document was handed to Claflin for safe keeping. Wilkinson, however, had mado a copy and gave it to the press last week. NEW YORK, June 2.—Tho follow ing card wa3 published to-day To tho Jiditor of the liroohhj n Eagle:— DEAR Sin:—I have maintained si lence respecting the slanders which have for so.nctime past followed mo. I should not speak of it now, but for the sake of relieving another of un just imputation. *Tho document which was recently published, bear ing my namo with others, was pub lished without consultation with us, aud without any authorization from us. If that document should lead the public to regard Mr. Tilton as tho author of the calumnies to which it alludes, it would do him great in justice. I am unwilling that he should even seem to be reeponsiblo for the injurious statements whose force was derived wholly from others. HJSXK* WARD BBECIIER. Mr. Boccher'8 denial of tho charg es preferred against him is not so di rect as to satisfy the demands of the people, but it will go far towards checking the further publication of those charges. For tho good of all inplicatod, lor the good of Christiani ty, and for the good of the ago in which we live, it is to bo hoped that Mr. Beecher will be ablo to prove false every charge that has come up against him.

Whole No., 336, 8HAKE8PEARE. The Divine William Viewed In a Comparative Ways [From the London Quarterly Review.J To say lluit he was tho greatest man that ever lived is to provoke a useless controversy and comparison that leads to nothing between Shakespeare and Ctcsar, Shakespeare and Cromwell to say that he was the greatest inlolloot that ever lived* is to bring tho shades of Aristotle and Plato, and Newton, and Bacon, and all your other systematic thiok* ers grumbling about us with de mands for a definition of intellect, which wo aro by no means in a po sition to give nay, finally to say that ho is tho greatest poet that tho world has produced (a think which wo would certainly wero we provok ed to it) would bo unnecessarily to hurt tho feelings of Ilouicr and So phocles, and Dante, aud Milion. What we will say then, and what wo will challenge the world to gainsay, is that ho was the greatest expresser that ever lived. This is glory enough, and it leaves tho other question open. Other men may havo led, on the whole, greater and moro impressive lives than he ether men, acting on their fellows through the same medium of speech that ho used may havo expended a greater power of thought and achieved a greater intellectual effect in ono consistent direction other men, too, though this is very unquestionable, may have contrived to issue tho mattor which they did address to tho world, more perfect and compact shapes but no man that ever lived said such splendid extomporo things on all subjects universally, no man that ev er lived had the facility of pouring out, on all occasions, such a flood of tho richest and deepest' language. He may havo had rivals in tho art of imagining situations ho had no ri val in tho power of sending a gash of appropriate effusion over the itn atco and body of a situation oaee conceived. From tho jewelled ring on tho Alderman's finger, to the most mountainous thought or deed of man or demon, nothing suggested itself that his spoech could not envel op and enfold with ease. That ex cessive fluency which astonished Beo. Johnson when ho listened to Shakes pearo in person astonishes tho world. Yet abundance, ease, redundance, it plcntituda of word, sound imagery, which, wore tho intellect at work only a littlo less magnificent, would sometimes end in sheer braggardism and bombast, are the characteristics of Shakespeare's style. Nothing'!# suppressed, nothing is omitted, nofll-# ing cancelled. On and on the poet flows, word, thoughts and fancies crowding him as fast as ht can write, all related to tho matter on hand, and all poured forth together, to rise and fall on tho waves of an establish* ed cadence. Such lightness and eayie in the manner, and such prodigious wealth and depth in tho nutter, aro combined in no other writer. How the matter was first accumulated, what proportion of it was acquired capital of foreign efforts, and, what proportion of it welled up in the poet's mind, during ami in virtue ol the very act of speech it is impossi ble to say but this, at least, may be affirmed, without fear ol contradie* tion, that thero never was a mind fa tho world from which, when it was pricked by any occasion whatever, thero poured forth on tho instant, such a stream of precious Bubstaace related to it. By his powers of ex pression, iu fact, Shakespeare has beggared all his posterity, and left mere practitioners of expression nothing possible to do. There is nerhaps not a thought, or feeling,"or situation really common or generio to human life on which he has not exercised his prerogative and whore eyer he has onco beeu, woe to the man who comes after him. He has overgrown the whole system and face of things like an universal Ivy, which has left no wall uncovered, lip pinnacle unclimbed, no chiuk unpen* etrated. Since ho left, tho concrete world has worn a rich surface.
