Ill I. V M.VIUll I-i: Iii: FONTI2XOY. COLONEL PATRICE (PATRICK) DE MACMAHON, who lias just been appointed to the command of the crack Thirty-fifth Infantry li<glmcnt at Belfort, Is tho eldest son of Marshal do MacMahon, who. after being Viceroy of Algeria; during the. lust decade of Napoleon's reign, was the second President of me third French republic. Colonel do MacMahon hns Inherited, alor.g with the family Chateau do la Foret Ir the I.olret and the family mansion in the Rue de Belchasso, In Paris, his fathers title of Due de Magenta, which tho marshal won In \%?i> on the battlefield of that r.ame. He does not. however, make use of It. and will probably rofrain from do? ing so; at any rate, until ho attains tho rank of general. Hitherto ho has been In commaiid of the First Bat? talion r't the One Hundred and Twen? ty-ninth Regiment of Infantry at Havre, where he lived very quietly and unpretentiously with his royal wife, Princess Marguerite of Orleans, daugh? ter of that Due de Chartres. wno, with his brother, the Comte do Paris, served on the staf.' ef General McClellan dur? ing the American Civil War. The colonel In appearance takes af? ter ills mother, a sister of ho last Duce de Castries, rather tnan after his father; for. like her. he Is extra? ordinarily pood-humored and disposed to embonpoint. He and his wife have three children, the youngest, a boy of seven, who will Inherit the dukedom and estates, and also two brothers. gene, who is the black sheep of the family, and who, after a most stormy carer in France and the colonies? a cause of much sorrow and expense to his parents, the Duko and Duchess of Magenta?finally vanished some? where In the Orient, and Emmanuel, who. a soldier l'ko Patrick, has for some months past commanded tho One Hundred and Fifty-fifth Regiment of Infantry at Commercy. Both tho soldier brothers have seen actlvo ser? vice. Patrick in the Madagascar cam? paign, whllo the younger won not on? ly much distinction, but rapid promo? tion. In fighting against tho Black Flags In Toriquln, and In this wlso obtaining a colonelcy even before Patrick did. It Is a great mistake to think that the family owe their no bltary title of marqus to Napoleon III It dates trom the mtuille of tho eighteenth century, and the second mhrquls received a scat In the French House of Peers from Charles X. on the occasion of his coronation. Descended Of the ancient Anglo Norman house of Fitzurse. whoso name In Irish becomes MacMahon, both the colonels are the great-grandsons of an Irish physician who nettled down to the practlco of h<s profession In 17i2 at Autun. Marrying a very rich widow, he became through her the owner of a large ostato In Burgundy, was created a marquis by Louis XVI. and died in Spain In 1776. It was Iiis eldest son, the second Marquis do MacMahon, who, by his marriage to Mile, do Caraman. of the ducal houro of that name, became the father of several sons, one of TToi younger of theso being tho already mentioned marshal of France, Due of Magacnta. The first marquis, the Irish physi? cian, had a younger brother, .lohn, who In 1730 entered tho Irish College at Paris, with the object of becoming a priest. Changing his rnlnd. ho also turned to medicine, ntvl was appointed a surgeon In the French army. Eater he was attached In a confidential ca? pacity to the French embassy at Ber? lin, where he became acquainted with Frederick the Great and Voltaire. Returning to Paris In 1770. ho was appointed chief medical oftlcer of the Ecole Mllltatre. ami married nn Ameri? can, a Miss bprlngham Clarko, of Phil? adelphia; He also was medical ad? viser to Benjamin Franklin In Paris, receiving from that father of Ameri? can diplomacy. In token of gratitude, a gold snuff box bearing his portrait. The MacMahons In France, like those In Ireland, nr? generally understood to be descended from Sir Reginald Fitzurse. the leader of the four knights of King Henry II. who slew St. Thomas A. Recket, tho ArshblshoP of Canterbury, on tho altar steps of h^.i cathedral. Flbmrso means "son of tho bear," a Norman-French equi? valent of the Rjornson of the Viking conquerors. The Celtlc-Irtsh transla? tion of tills is MacMahon. It Is said that nfter the crime Sir Reginald fled to the north of Ireland and spent the rollt of his days In voluntary exile, be? coming the ancestor of tho Irish Mac? Mahons. Another of Becket's assailants was Sir William do Tracy, whose d v.en dants still flourish In tho w. st of England, and from whom the Lords Wotnyss and Sudeley aro both de? scended.
