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
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
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
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.
[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

- ment.
His Vindicatlon by the Surgeon of an
Iowa Itegiemnt.
The Washington correspondent of
the Philadelphia Evening Bulletin, a
stalwart organ, sends that paper the
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
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
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.
[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
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

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

Gov. St. John is presldent. Judge

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.
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

health is feeble, she resolved to pay
her a visit in person. A special train
In which Her Majesty generally trav

this afternoon Her Majesty, accom
panied by the Princess Beatrice aind
several ladies in walting, departed for

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."
