[Philadelphia Times.] The death of the titular Prince Im perial of France and the attention nat urally directed to the Prince who thus becomes the head of the Napoleonic succession, will give interest to a sum mary review of the Bonaparte geneal ogy. Napoleon Bonaparte had four 'brothers and three sisters, who may be named in the order of their birth, as follows : 1. Joseph, born 1768, died 1844. He was made King of Naples and after ward King of Spain, and on the fall of the empire came to the United States, under the name of Count de Survilliers, and lived for a long time at Borden town. He married Mile. Clagy, by whom he had two daughters, Zenaide, married to her cousin, the Prince of Canino, and who died in 1854, and Charlotte, married to Napoleon LouIs, the brother of the late Emperor. She died in 1839. 2. Luclen, Prince of Canina, born in 1775, died 1840. He opposed the Em peror's plans of conquest, refused a crown and devoted himself to literary and archaeological pursuits, for which reason the Emperor excluded him from the succession, though he was most devoted to Napoleon after his fall and to the claims of Napoleon II. His first wife was Christine Boyer, an inn-keeper's daughter, who bore him two children, Charlotte, who was mar ried to Prince Mario Gabrielli and af terward to Dr. Centamori, and died in 1865; and Christine, who was the wife successively of the Swedish Count Posse and of Lord Dudley Coutts Stuart, and died in 1847. By his sec ond wife, Marie de Bleschamp, Lucien had four daughters and four sons. Jeanne was married to Count Honorati; Marie to Count Valentinl; Constance became Abbess of the Convent of the Sacred Heart at Rome, and Lmetitia was married to Sir Thomas Wyse. The sons were: a. Charles Luelen, Prineetof Canino, born 1808, died 1857. He married his cousin Zenalde, daughter of Joseph, and joined his father-in-law in Amer ica, where he gained a great reputation as a naturalist. It was he who com pleted Wilson's ornithology. In later life he was director of the Jardin des Plantes, at Paris. He had three sons, Joseph Lucien, who was born in Phil adelphia in 1824 and died in Rome in 1865; Lucien Louis, born in Rome in 1828, ordained a priest in 1853 and made a cardinal by Pius IX in 1868, and Napoleon Gregoire, born in 1839. The five daughtres of Charles Lucien became the wives of the Marquis Roc eagiovine, Count Primoli, Count Cam pello and Prince Plaeido Gabrielli. 6. Louis Lucien, bornin England in 1813. He has devoted himself to phil ology, and is chiefly known by his studies in English and French dia lects. c. Pierre Napoleon, born in Rome in 1815, a wild lad, who wandered all over the world and was in quarrels every where. He served with Santander in South America; fought with policemen in Italy; was tried for murder in Paris; twice fled for refuge to the United States, and finally settled down in London, where his wife opened a mil linery shop under her princely title. d. Antoine, born in 1816. Spent his early life in Italy. Was a member of the Assembly from 1849 to 1851, when he retired from politics. He was one of the family who kept aloof from his cousin, the Emperor. 3. Marie Anne Elisa, born 1777, died 1820. Married to Bacceochi, a Corsican officer, in 1797. Removed to Paris and was made Princess of Plombino and Lucca and Grand Duchess of Tuscany. Their daughter, Napoleone Elisa, born 1806, married Count Camerata, and was a prominent person for many years. She died in 1869, leaving her fortune to the late Prince Imperial. They had also two sons, the eldest of whom, Count Felice Bacchioch, trans mitted his title and estates to his son of the same name, who was the friend and first chamberlain of Napoleon III, and died 4n 1866. 4. Louis, born 1778, died 1846. Mar ried JIortense Beauharnais, Josephine's daughter. Made King of Holland in 1806. Though he was continually quar reling with the Emperor, the latter, in his will, gave precedence to his chil dren over those pf Joseph and Lucien in the right of succession. There were two sons: a. Napoleon Louis, born 1804, died 1831. His father abdicated in his favor in 1810, and after the overthrow of the Emperor the father and son lived to gether in Florence until the latter's death. 6. Louis Napoleon, born 1808, died 1873. It is well known that the pater nity of the late Emperor was question- I ed, but as Louis ofilcially acknowl edged it, the matter need not be dis cussed here. Napoleon III married Eugenie Marie de Montijo in 1853, and had by her one child, Napoleon Eu gene Louis Jean Joseph, who has just been killed in South Africa. 5. Mlarie Pauline, bron 1780, died 1825. Married first to Gen. Leelerc, and afterward to Prince Camille Bor ghese. Created by the Emperor Duch esse of Guaitaila. 6. Caroline, born 1782, died 1839. MIarried in 1800 to Blurat, afterward King of Naples, to whom she bore two sons andl two ,l:tughters. Lwctitia Jo sephine became Countess Popoli, and Louise Countess Raspoui. The sons were: a. Napoleon Achille, born 1821, died 1847. Settled in Florida; married a grandniece of Washington, and died on his estate near Tallahassee. 6. Napoleon Lucien, born 1803. Came to the United States and married Miss Fraser. Returned to France in 1848; became Senator; received the title of Prince of the Imperial Family in 1853, and was with Bazaine at the capitula tion of Metz. His eldest son, Joseph Joachim Napoleon, Is a colonel in the French army. 7. Jerome, born 1784, died 1860. Visited the United States in 1803, where he married Elizabeth Patterson of Baltimore, lately deceased. By her he had one child: a. Jerome Napoleon, born in Eng land 1805, died in Baltimore 1870. Graduated at Harvard, and married Miss Williams of Roxbury, Mass. His eldest son, Jerome Napoleon, born in 1832, graduated at West Point in 1852; served as colonel in the French army in the Crimea and in Italy; married a Boston lady, and is now living at New York. He has two children. The second son, Charles Jerome, born 1851, is a lawyer in Baltimore. Jerome separated from his wife and became an admiral in the French ser vice, and subsequently a general, and in 1806 the Senate made him the suc cessor to the throne in the event of Napoleon's leaving no male issue. In the following year he was made King of Westphalia, and his marriage with Miss Patterson being annulled, he mar ried the Princess Catherine, daughter of the King of Wurtemburg, by whom he had two sons and a daughter: b. Jerome Napoleon, born 1814, died 1847. He was an officer in the army of Wurtemburg. c. Mathilde Letitia Wilhelmine, born 1820. Married, 1841, to Prince Anatole Demidoff of San Donato, who died in 1870, when his widow was married to the painter Paupelin. d. Napoleon Joseph Charles Paul, commonly known as Prince Napoleon, born In 1822; a talented man, whose erratic life cannot be compressed into a paragraph. He married in 1859 the Princess Clotilde, daughter of King Victor Emmanuel, by whom he has two sons and a daughter--Napoleon Victor, born 1862; Napoleon Louis, born 1864; and Marie, born 1866. It will be seen from the above list that the direct male line not only of Napoleon Bonaparte, but of his broth ers Joseph and Louis, is now extinct, the surviving Bonapartes being the descendants of Lucien and Jerome. Of the former branch of the family, Prince Louis Lucien, the philogist, and his nephew, Cardinal Bonaparte, are the chief representatives, but the Na poleonic decree having excluded this scholarly line from the succession, Prince Napoleon, as the son of the younger brother, Jerome, comes to the front as the official head of the family of Bonaparte. Had the marriage with Miss Pattersog been acknowledged by the political law of France, as it was by the laws of God and man elsewhere, this apparently empty honor would fall upon Col. Bonaparte of Baltimore. A WOMAN'S MECHANICAL GENIUS. [Dalton (Ga.) Headlight.] Now we have a real live prodigy in our town, which can't be beat, and it's no use for our exchanges to hatch up any more lies. There is a lady in this city who can make shoes, repair sew ing machines, clocks, boots and shoes, make picture frames, house keys and nearly every article that she needs about the house, in fact, she is a won derful mechanical genius. "Not long ago she made her own last and finished up a nice pair of high heeled shoes for herself. She also half-soles and repairs her husband's boots, and can finish up ladies' shoes aswell asanybody. While but in the garden recently she lost one of her keys, and being an intelligent woman and one believing in home manufactures, she procured a file and an old piece of iron and made a key which answered very well. She says that if she had the tools she could make a good key. If she wants a pic ture frame or any like article, she don't have to buy it. When her own or her neighbor's clock gets out of order she sets it to working again, free of charge. It is something unusual for a woman to develop talent of this kind, which is both a useful and worthy accom plishment, and one of which she may well be proud. Her husband, too, should be proud of possessing such a wife. No one man in ten thousand can boast of having such a treasure. Stanley Africanus is again at the head of an exploring expedition and on his way through the Dark Conti nent. lie has enlisted many of his old followers at Zanzibar, paid them ad vanced wages, and promised them a visit to Europe when their journey is over. The expedition is provided with a steam launch, a large cutter, and many pierced iron plates. These last Sare doubtless to serve as protections to boat crews when navigating the lakes or rivers. It is supposed that the des I tination of the party is the Congo, but - it is probable that the great tributaries - of that river will be more objects of -search than its main channel, which . has already been traced out. The eon I torprise is at the expense and under > the anspices of the Belgian govern - ment. ChALMERS AT FORT FILLOW. His Vindicatlon by the Surgeon of an Iowa Itegiemnt. The Washington correspondent of the Philadelphia Evening Bulletin, a stalwart organ, sends that paper the following: CILARITON, IOWA, May 13. Gen. Chalmers M. C. from Mississippi: Sir-I have seen at different times and in various papers the charge made against you that you murdered a babe and had been engaged, also, in mur dering several whites and negroes at Fort Pillow, on the 12th of April, 1864. I have no especial acquaintance with you; have only seen you twice in my life-once on the 12th of April, and again on the 13th, 1864, but 1 desire to give you my recollection of that bat tie. I was acting surgeon of the post at the time-the only surgeon there. I first saw you on the 12th, on the bluem above, where the greatest number was killed, the greatest slaughter having occurred under the bluffs next to the river. I was nnder the bluffs most of the time. The greater portion of the officers that commanded the two negro regiments were killed in the Fort be fore there was a charge made. They were picked off by sharpshooters, there being several points much higher than the miserable earth works, from which it was quite easy for sharpshooters to pick out almost any man they wished. Booth, his adjutant, and several other officers were killed early in the fore noon. I had my field hospital under the bluffs next to the river. When Forrest's forces charged into the miserable Fort the two negro regi ments and the men of the Thirteenth Tennessee Cavalry came down under the bluff where I was, followed by quite a number of soldiers of Forrest's command. I did not see but few offi cers among Forrest's soldiers under the bluff--none above the ranks of lieutenant and captain. I was taken up the bluffs by a lieutenant of Missis sippi rebel cavalry, and when I arrived on the bluff within the Fort there were but a few rebel soldiers there. For rest was up there sighting a piece of artillery on the little gunboat up the river. I saw him sight it several times and fire on the gunboat, after which I passed outside the earthworks. I do not think Forrest knew what was go ing on under the bluffs. After I had passed out of the earthworks, I met a few ambulances with their drunken, cowardly crew, who were about to take off my boots, whlen you came riding near by. Seeing you had on the evidence of being a general, I called to you. You rode up to me and asked me what was wanted. I asked you if you would allow those fellows to strip a prisoner of his boots. You cursed them and put a guard over me, giving orders to the guard to shoot down the first one that molested me. I again saw you on the 13th. Rode part of the way from the camp to the river and went aboard the Platte Val ley steamboat with you, and saw you several times on the boat. I had the a wounded taken on board the boat. I do not believe there was a babe there 4 for any one to kill, as early in the i morning all of the women and all of the non-combatants were ordered on to some barges, and were towed up the river to an island by a gun boat before I any one was hurt. I fail to see how I you could have got on that island to c kill that babe. I do not believe that you knew what was going on under the blufft, as I did not see you under there while I was there, but saw you < ride up, as I have stated, from an op- 1 posite direction, after I had got upon c the bluflk, and the most of the work s was over next the river. The most of the men in the Thir teenth Regiment were deserters from Forrest's command. I have examined t a groat many of theorn myself who told me they were. There seemed to be a I great hatred on the part of Forrest's 1 men toward many of thorn-personal feeling-as I heard many of Forrest's men charge the Thirteenth Regiment t with doing many things that were mean towards their friends since they had deserted Forrest and joined the Thirteenth Federal Regiment. I am not aware that there was any formal surrender of Fort Pillow to Forrest's command. I looked on many things that were done as the result of whisky and a bitter personal hate, es pecially as regards the Thirteenth Reg imcnt. There was considerable alco hol outside the Fort which Forrest's men must have got hold of long before the charge was made. 1 have always thought that neither you nor Forrest knew everything that was going on at the time, under the bluffs. What was done was .done very quietly. I know that you treatedl me kindly on the 12th and 13th. I could tell you many things about Fort Pillow, dioubt less, if I had time. If I believe what is published about your being such an inhuman creature on that occasion I' should so toll you. If you wish to learn about me fur ther, talk with Gen. Weaver, M. C. from Iowa, Hion. A. C. Dodge, Henry Clay Dean, of Iowa, Belknap, ex-Sec retary- of war, G(o. W. McCrary and Heon. R. 11. Hayes. The latter and myself were young nmen living in Fre raont while it was called Lower San Jdusky. (:Ii on him and ask him If he knew one 0. Fitch, who read medicine with Dr. L. Q. Ransom of Fremont? I have not seen President Hayes for twenty-eight years. I have been liv ing here in Chariton since '52, and most of the time practicing medicine. I was acting surgeon at Fort Pillow on the 12th of April, 1864; was not before the Wade committee. If you wish to write to me asking any questions I will try to answer them honestly and fairly. I looked upon you on the 12th and 13th of April, 1864, as far as I could see, as anything but a cold-blooded murderer. I took you to be rather a good-feeling man. Your conduct to wards me was that of a gentleman. I do not believe what is charged against , you on that occasion. General, call on President lHayes and give him my respects, if you feel at liberty to do so. I have not had any correspondence with him nor seeon him for 28 years. I am not a politician. Gen. Weaver knows me well, I think, give him my respectq. C. FirTc, Charlton, Iowa. PILING UP TRl BURDEN. I [Washington Post.] There are now on the register and pay-rolls of the regular army about twice as many officers as there is any occasion for. This statement cannot be successfully refuted. The utmost Ingenuity in the invention of pretexts for duty and pay, cannot disguise the fact that idleness is the normal condi tion of the gentlemen whose names ornament the register and piy.rolls of our military establishment. The top-heaviness of the army, the preposterous disproportion of officers I to enlisted men, the insignificant show Ing of duty performed as compared with the expense incurred, would be ludicrous to the last degree if it were not a serious matter of dollars and cents, and bread and butter, to the people who support this enormous mass of genteel idleness. That fact I deprives the situation of every humor ous element, and induces the Ameri can people to look with resentment and anger on what would excite only ridicule if it left their pockets un touched. I But when they see this horde of aria toeratic idlers-we refer to the super fluous officers, and not to those who are needed and perform necessary duties steadily increased by annual reinforce ments from West Point; when they see the Military Academy needlessly add ing to the list of idlers scores of young men who are to be supported for life on the toil of their fellow-citizens; when they see these young men so lost to manly feeling that they are proud of a chance to get a genteel mainte nance without rendering any equiva lent; when they see them assuming airs of superiority over the men whose labor keeps them in ease and luxury; wheri they perceive that this thing is Intended as a permanent feature of our Institutions, and that the list of paid and petted superfluities is Intended to be increased every year-when all this dawns upon the public mind, it is nat ural that the sovereign people, the I masters of the army, the masters of t Congress and the Executive, should I feel that this thing has gone far 9 enough. In the opinion of Mr. IIayes, how- r ever, it has not gone far enough, and d he goes about among the played-out t politicians in his party to find candi- s dates for army offices. lie goes into t civil life and brings thence the pro- s teges of.Rtadical statesmen to quarter I them among the legions of paid idlers a subsisting by the sweat of other men's V brows. If there were any need, pres. ti ont or prospective, of more officers of 0 any kind in the army; if the most for- It tile fancy could suggest any plausible I pretext for more otilcers; if we had 0 not already two for every one that is I needed, we would not complain of Mr. ti Hayes' action. But in the light of ex- u isting facts It is a cruel imposition on a t long-suffering and much - enduring 0 people to add to the list of useless sti- 'I pendiarices quartered for life-long main- I tenance on the labor of this country. f Weston's previous record as a pedes trian covers more contests than that of any living pedestrian. lie is the father of long-distance pedestrianism and was the first man to accomplish 100 miles In 24 hours, which he did eleven years ago, and which was at that time con sidered a wonderful feat. In 1867 he undertook to walk from Portland, Me., to Chicago, Ill., in 26 days, but failed in the attempt, occupying 29 days on his Journey. In 1876 he walked for six days in Liverpool and scored 5001 miles, a performance considored unap proachable until, ono month later, it was beaten by two miles by i)aniel O'Leary. In Agricultural Hlll, Lon don, in a six days' walk, bheginning April 2, 1877, Weston made 510 miles by square heel and toe work, and this, i previous to the present contest, was his most noteworthy record. I Mr. 'i'Thurman is the only Senalor a who takes snuff regularly, but the cus b tom of keeping snuff in the desk of the c Secretnry ot the Senate is still contin- t Ued. Capt. lassett, who was a page fifty years ago, says he has often seen Mr. Clay stop while speaking and ad vance and take a pinch of snuff, and I that all the Senators of tlhat dlay used c( it. IIPORTANT LETTNRI FROM KANSAS. K&AsaA CITY, Mo., June 6, 1879. J Prof. W. H. R4aynoe: )ear .Wead-(Please excuse famill arity), 1 addressed acard to you a few days ago in answer to a letter from you, I also seat a paper with a prom Slee to write further partculars; I am prepared to write now. In the firsat place, I W tae to you that I have been busy. ,stteadg to these people since the arrival of the first cargo at Wyandotte Saine the first of April, I have bad exclusive control of all who have Itrialed here. I my here, because about the first of April the citizens refused to allow any more of them to land at theitWharf, so they have been compelled to land in Kansas City, Mo. The Rellef'Comittee at Wyandotte refused to ad any more. So with Mr. Armour (oe of the best white men I ever met) I took charge of all who have landed silin that time. Kansas offers no inducement whatever and does not encourage the exodus. I visited Topeka this week to see aflter those I have forwarded. The commit tee at that place is compoeod principal ly of white prominent gentlemen. Gov. St. John is presldent. Judge McFarland chairman of the executive committee. I met the executive com mittee, they told me that they had about expended all their means. We have been sending them out through the State wherever they were wanted. It now seems they are about filled up. I would advise our people to stay where they are, at present, at any rate,. as it is getting late in the season; the hard winter will necessarlly occasion great sufleyRng; many will no doubt starve to death; the government, of course, will do nothing for them; If there are any who have means of their own, and want to try and better their condition, they might come; but you know, Professor, that there is no State or country that covets paupers as emi grants. Kansas is a now State and we are all poor together. I have no doubt in my mind that hundreds of them will starve to death this winter. For God's sake and humanity tell the people not to come. We will have an army of tramps among them this summer. I am yours, B. F. WATSON, N. B.--Write me again soon. We will have 160 here to-morrow morning on the steamboat; no one to see to them but myself. Ii I had the time I would go down South and tell them all to stay for the present. VICTORIA AND EUGENIE MEBBT. LONDON, June 28.-Upon the return of the Princess of Wales to Windsor from Chiselhurst, after her visit of con dolence to the Empress, the Queen was so impressed by the account the Princess gave of the unhappy and al most desperate condition of the Em press, that, notwithstanding her own health is feeble, she resolved to pay her a visit in person. A special train In which Her Majesty generally trav els from WVindsor to Osborne and to Dover, was ordered in realiness, amnd this afternoon Her Majesty, accom panied by the Princess Beatrice aind several ladies in walting, departed for Chiseolhurst. By direction of the su perintendent of the line, the time of departure of the (rain was no arranged that no delay occurred between Wind sor or Waterloo station, nor from there to Chiselhurst. At Chitllhurst, whore, since the news of the death of the Prince, a great numLber of visitors have arrived, Iier Majesty was recelved with silence, but with every manifes. tation of respect by the great congress of English and Frenchl gentiemnen andi ladies. Carriages from Campllen House were In waiting, and the Queen was at once driven to the residence of the Empress Eugenio, who had by this time recovered to some extent her usual composure, and met Her Majes ty at the principal entrance, and they embraced with affectionate tenderness. The Queen was conducted biy the Em press into the boudoir upon the ground floor amjoining the large diinig hall where she remalned in a plrivnat con ference with the Empress. Few people are aware that the, proud boast of Englishmen that the sunl never sets on the British Empire, is equally applicable to the United States. In stead of being the western limit of the Union, San Francisco is only about midway between the furthest Aleutian isle, acquired by our purchase of Alaska, and Jastport, Maine. Our territory extends through 197 degrees of longitude, or elevon degrecs more than half way round the globe. The Rocky Mountain l'resbyterian, in colm menting on this fact, says: "VWhen the sun is giving its goodt-night kiss to our most western, isle, on the confines of Hiohlring sea, it is already flooding tithe fieolds and forests of Maine with its morning light, and in the eastern part of that State is more than an hour high. At the very moment when the Aleutian fisherman, warned by the ;approaching shades of night, is pulling his canoe towar(l time shore, the worod chopper of Maine in beginning to make the forest echo with the stirring music of the ax." It is reportedl that"Our Boys," whichl has now been played some three years continuously in a London thlmetre, iha n·tted $2.'50i,(K to thie lwesees,.
