" rblld la RMPKK t KABBH1X JAZAIBI. Tie trial of tbii illustrioua officer baa been poing on loug while under the Urate charge of lurrenderinu tlie army at Meti without doing all that honor re quired. While there has been a mystery about the cause of the surrender, the outside world has mror auspected Bazaine of treason. He entered the French army a privM. !u bis nineteenth year, and has dor" .errice forty-two years. On bis body arc many scars, and he weara numerous decorations, earned by bis bravery on the field. It is no wonder that he was agitated when convicted, after a long and tedious trial, of betraying France, whom he had served o well all his life. It is said that when the long list of battles in which he bad participated waa read in court, that be was affected" even to tears. There are perhaps two causes for his trial and con viction. The first is tbtt France feels deeply the humiliation of defeat, and popular feeling demands a victim upon whom the blame can be laid, rather than on the nation. In their eyes,,fuilure is a crime, and to be less than Bonaparte is rank treason. They would vindicate their ancient renown as a great and war like power by punishing a conspicuous person and thus divert the ignominy of defeat. It is in some respects a feeling akin to that which demanded the mur der of Mrs. Surratt. The mob demands blood, and is led on by sham dema gogues. Secondly, the fact is well known that a bitter feeling of rivalry has existed some years between Bazaine and McMa hon. The latter is in power now, but he knows not how long he will remain in favor, although elected President for seven Tears, and his adherents desire, doubtless, to do him a service by putting Bazaine out of the way. Therefore, he has been convicted and sentenced to be shot, and the expenses of the trial paid out of his estate. Surely it is a danger ous thing to be great in France. If ex- ecuted, Marshal Bazaine will not be the first sacrifice laid upon the altar of that coentry to appease public clamor. The head of one of her best kings rolled into h PTPntionpr's basket to gratify a blood-thirsty demand. Marshal Murat, who bad distinguished himself on many laitln -fields, was shot on nearly the same charge that he had betrayed France. The taking eff of Bazaine will hn a shame to bis country and a dis grace to this civilized age. It would have been more becoming to the bloody reitrn cf PhiliD the II of Spain, the dayj of Robespierre of France or the ai 'tr Kings of England. The court or. Led in a recommendation to ai.cy. hich may be rsgarded, but tnere would be but little mercy in ip&.ijgihe life of the battle scarred old veteran to degrade and banish him. Death we'uld doubtless be preferable MeMahon is absolute, and is a mon archist at beatt. His is to be a cen tral government, which will brook no opposition and crush out all dangerous rivalries that cannot be pacified. France is to be a republic in name o:.y, nudr Napoleon III when he waa i-nt elected President, but will j not long remain so in fact. One of the bad signs is the conv'ction of Bazaine to get him out of the way. And what is most disgraceful is that when his sentence was read at Trianon the large and breathless audierce broke out into a about of heartless applause. This in dicates the spirit of the people and their light, flippant way of dealing with grave objects. Suppose that Jefferson Davis had been tried and convicted at the close of the war when Northern feeling ran w high against !mn, how differently the announcements- ',,d have fallen upon the ears of his most inveterate enemies. Republicanism to be permanent and beneficial to a people must be of slow growth, founded npon principles of virtue and sustained by intelligent freemen, who know not only their own rights, but recognize the rights of others. It is never the result of a sudden revo lution, but is a matter of gradual educa tioa, wherein a wide distinction is drawn between the sanctity of human rieliti and the restive spirit which would throw off all law and order, break oj society and call that freedom. France is not likely to succeed as a genuine republic soon. She is making a bad start. The only favorable sign is that a better system of public education is being introduced, and under this the people may in a generation or so be come elevated to the dignity and ca- pacity of a If government Wt would remind all who care to v te at tbe approaching municipal election that next Tuekday, the 16tb inst, is the last day for registration.

The Patriot Forcew Capture and Sack Manzanillo. HALF THE CITY LAID 15 ASHES. Oao Mlllloa Dollar asMl ti em it red Frleer Carried air. New Yobk, December 12. An otlicial report of General Catrix to Y. Ivignez, chief of the patriot forces in Cnba, of the attack by the Cubans on Manzanillo, ba been received here. He says his forces numbered 1400 men. The Spanish garrison of Manzanillo consisted of 500 soldiers, 800 volunteers and a large com- paoy of firemen.' Manzanillo is de fended by Gerana and Searagoza castles and nine towers. The war steamer Vanditti and two gunboats in the bay assisted in the defense. The defense was obstinate, but after a half hour's fighting tbeCuban pressed the Spaniards back. The Cubans then entered the city and occupied the market place and chief streets. The fight became general, last ing from the afternoon until three e'clock next morning. The Cubans then bnrned the chief buildings. The war vessels kept up a fire, but instead of injuring the Cubans, they only helped to burn tbetown. After destroying half the city by fire and cap turing twenty-five stands of arms, 8000 rounds of ammunition aud considerable booty in gold, notes, clothing, provision and horses, valued at over a million dollars, the Cubans "evacuated the city, carrying on about one hundred pris oners. The Cubans lost five officers and fourteen non-commissioned officer and soldiers. At Cuban beaduuarUn last night ad vices from Havana were received, which stated that he Cuban patriots bad again entered Manzanillo, Bayone and Lole quita. The Spanish now bold very few towns in the eastern department and CamugUKjr, their attention being directed to fortified towns on the coast, owing to threatened war with the United States. The patriots are in absolute possession of three-fourths of tbe island. SEW lOEfi. New York, December J2. Tbe police are making arrangements for a grand descent in force on tbe faro banks, panel and game houses ia this city. Many large establishment in differ ent departments of trade are Btill closed, whle a majority of tLe other are work ing short handed, or at reduced wage. Thousands of the poorer class of citizens are in otter destitution, and must pass a terrible winter unless material help eomes soon in the shape of substantial stimulus to trade. f 1 : Why is Prince Napoleon, tbe son-in-law of the King of luly. cal!d "Plon 1'loa " by the French people? Here is the reason: We have all seen those little leaden soldier, which are so constructed that, being placed upon tteir feet, they prove top-heavy inUnt!y, turn over and stand on their heads. Frenc h children style these playthings " Plon-Plon," that is, made of lead, and you can un derstand how ridiculous such a nick name rendered tbe Prince, who, when ever ha was started eff upon any mili tary commission, was inevitably recalled just in the nick of time to make it ap pear that he was running from possible danger. The PreBch people are keenly alive to the ridiculous, and they eagerly seized npon th opportunity offered for a laugh or sneer by the nickname of the Priuce, and it became an accepted idea that be was a coward. This im pression gained ground when challenged by the Duke d'Aumale, some years since to fight a duel, and having it appear that he wouid meet tbe Duke, tbe Prince re ceived the imperial mandate to refrain, else there would be an immediate cut ting off of the liberal pension which then enabled the Prince to revel ia a very Capoan exieteace, spent among the leading members of tbe demi-monde. Niemann, ihe great German tenor, owes all bis professional success to his former wife, Marie Seebach, who edu cated him, and from a common lock srailh s apprentice lifted him to bis pres ent place. After, by his violence and unkindr.en, he had almost broken the heart ot this actre.s, he married a charm ing little eotrets.
