WKSTERN SAINTS ON A SPUES.
The Common Council of Suiut Louis
Is on a visit to tlie Northern cities. The
ostensible object of the excursionists is
to look into the municipal workings tit
! New York, Pbilt*xtel{*hhi and KoKton,
but the real purpose of the purty is :i
,-pree at the public expense. The Phila
delphia Teleyraph gives an elaborate
■ account of the Saints, going no far as to
, employ wood-cut illustrations of how
tlie junketers appeared. We quote a
• sentence or two:
" On the arrival of the Saints at West
Philadelphia, they were met by the hos
pitallers of the city anil escorted to the
(xirard House. In crossing the Market
; .Street Bridge, they were shown one of
the antiquities of the city, the Chestnut
Street llridge, as it was before the Hood,
and the means taken to prevent it from
i going to decay in this trying climate.
"At the tiirard House they were
, shown the private "gasometer" ofthe
concern, with which the guests are sup
plied, like Senator Wall, of New Jersey,
when a speech from the balcony to tlie
streets is necessary.
■ "The Saints we're then taken to that
'Cradle of Liberty,' Independence Hall,
and shown the way the Cradle is rooked
,by the nurse in attendance, and how ef
fectively liberty is put to sleep within it;
the trees in front, with 'suckers' all
around the trmiks, showingagreat want
of the pruuing-kiiife; the kind and hu
mane provision for the feeding of the
pilgrims to this Shrine by the extensive
coffee stand in the entrance, the pave
ment of which was once trod by a Wash
ington and a Franklin, and by our revo
lutionary mothers in their 'patterns,'
and now by the loyal and substantial
Mrs. Patten herself. 1 n the rear of the
hall are tbe trees, though not fruit trees,
yet as fruitful of subjects for the Coun
sellors every spring and summer, iv the
matter Of debate, as the children are iv
green apple time among the mothers,
and for the same cause.
"N. il— The Saints are notified that
the monstrous " toadstools " seen from
the Hall dour, down the main avenue,
are not of nature's growth, but were put
there by the city carpenter, and are
sometimes used as seats by persons who
are very weary, and want to rest them
selves, after the manner of a treadmill,
by getting tired in another position.
"The Saints were taken up-stairstolhe
lighting grounds of the Counsellors, the
location of the King, the seat of the
' referee,' and the spot where the
Tenth Ward 'chicken' went to 'grass'
in the little'mill' last summer, and
here they discoursed enthusiastically of
'Fights' to come.' Mr. G. K. Jludd" on
the part of tlie tSaiiits, spoke a piece,
which seemed to be 'nipped in the
Build,' if the newspaper reports are car
rectly given, iv which he says funny
things."

Beti'kn of Speaker Colfax's
Party.—Mr. Speaker Colfax, of the
House of Representatives, Lieutenant.
Governor Bross, of Illinois, and Mr:
Bowles, editor of tlie Springfield En
publican, arrived in New York ; from
Aspinwall, after completing their tour
of investigation through the mines,
valleys, gorges, forests and labyrinths of
the Pacific States and Territories. The
explorers have had a romantic time of it
—discussing bigamism with Brigliam
Young, and saw his forty wives, look
ing pretty well, at a theatre; saw cata
racts half a mile high in the Yo Semite
valley; crossed and recrossed the Sierra
Nevada mountains three times, passing
through eternal snows, above the hu
man family ; saw a cargo of gold dust
on the Columbia river from Idaho for
San Francisco, worth $90,000; saw one
ton of silver bricks, Interspersed with
gold, in one pile in Nevada; visiting
her Majesty's folks in Vancouver's
Island, and made innumerable speeches
during the prolonged ovation which
marked their progress overland through
California.
The main object of the visit of Mr.
Colfax and his companions was to ascer
tain If the resources and status of the
country demanded the speedy construc
tion of the Pacific Railroad. Governor
Bross, with xvhom our reporter convers
ed, is decided in his conviction that the
early completion of the work is loudly
demanded, and his opinions are shared
by the entire party. The development
of wealth to the country attendant on
this event, it is asserted, will be of the
most astonishing character. The Pa
cific end of the road is being pushed
With marked energy and success over
tbe east side of the Sierra Nevadas. The
ridge, which isseveu thousand feet liisrh,
will soon be worked through, and the
rest of the road is asserted to be as easy
of construction as a road on the New
York Central line.
It was in the middle of May that (lie
party started from Chicago, four months
being thus passed in the explorations.
Mr. Richardson, of Chicago, who ac
companied tlie party, remained in Ida
ho. The other gentlemen, at present
stopping at the St. Nicholas, will return
to their homes in the course of a week.

An Extraordinary StoryokTrka

an extraordinary story rivaling the
i " moon hoax," of gold and gems found
by the square yard hi Mount Cenis

r.KTTKIt BY PRINCE 111: JOIN*
VILLE TO A GENTLEMAN I\
WASHINGTON.
[COPY.]
OW.EAN* UIHSE. TnirK' Nil.ltr. Sl'llliKV. I
April itt, ink j
Drab Bib:—Just as i was going to
write to you to congratulate you upon
the great achievements of your fleets
and armies, we heard of the horrible
deed of the 1 ith, aud I have to mourn
with you upon one of tbe greatest and
best men of the age. Ihe voice of pos
terity is already speaking, nnd every
where everybody is at length recogniz
ing the value of that good, honest and
firm man.
The feeling of horror and indignation
is universal in Europe, mixed with a
great deal of alarm for the future. For
myself, I do not, feel that alarm. I have
always had faith in your country, and
I have it still. ' Your en -rgctiu but wise
country will find other pilots worthy of
the task they will have to perform. I
only say that il'good Mr. Seward is
savi'd, that task will be made much
easier. I ardently hope that it will be
the case, and that he will be spared for
the good of his country ami thoufi'tc
tion of his friends.
Bul il* be was to succumb, we have
here in London, in Mr. Adams, a firm,
clear-headed, discreet mail, who has
very strongly Impressed me with his
value, and who, as far as my knowledge
of men permits me to judge, would
iiniltc a very efficient substitute.
I also hope that the dastardly ail will
lie found lo be the work of only a few
desperadoes, and that it will not stop
that, feeling of magnanimity in victory
which your bitterest enemies are obliged I
to admire.
You have proved strong iv war, mum- j
imous in your national policy; your:
constitution has passed successfully, and
Is going, 1 fondly believe, to pass sue- I
ccssfully, through the severest tests.- -
Punish the assassins, but do not be ran
corous. BhoW yourselves Usg. iierous>tu
you are strong. I take the. liberty to
suggest to you that wish, because it is
my only fear that these horrid assassi
nations, and the miserable exultation
which they will not fail to,provoke
among the low-miuded of your enemies,
shall bring witii them a bplrit of retali
ation from which no good can oome,
I wish to see your great country come
out of all its troubles without any spot.
I wish il for herself first, andalso'for tbe j
example. You defend not only your
cause, but that of liberal institutions all
over the world.
You must be proud, sir, of the doings
of your navy. With' tlie brilliant ex
ploit of Commodore Winslow has tlie
tide of victory turned with you. The
achievements in Mobile Bay are without
parallel, and throw the greatest honor
■ou your flag. All naval men payajusl
tribute of admiration to Admiral Kiirra
gut and bis brother officers and men.—
This war will leave your navy in a very
efficient statsi, and with a feeling of con
lidence in itself, which is half the suc
cess.
Not so iv European navies. Ours is
tired and disgusted by tlie odious ser
vice of transports imposed upon it. .The
Britisli navy, after a long period of mac
' tion, and furnished witli ships and men
it has no confidence in, is not what it
was formerly.
Both navies continue to build sea-go
ing broadside iron-clads of Immense size
and cost j but the policy of building such
expensive ships when they may be so
easily sunk by a miserable torpedo is
much discussed, and tlie tide is coining
to small Iron-clads witli two or four
guns, Monitor fashion. J'or long cruises,
fast unclad screw sloops, Alabama or
rather Flortdathmh lon, seem also to be
most appropriate. Upon all these points
you have the lead.
Where everybody is still behind is in
gunnery.
The best English gun Is the 3IK)
pounder, smooth-bore, muzzle-loader,
Armstrong gun, built on the coil princi
ple, and able to throw ils shot with a
very heavy charge of powder. The royal
navy has no good rifle gun of heavy cali
bre; bat I think that Mr. Blakely can
turn out some very efficient ones.
The French have no heavy guns,
smooth-bore or rifle, and have not yet
succeeded to experiment .successfully
upon any one. The best gun we have in
use is a breach-loaded rifle gun, throw
ing a 00-pound shot with low charge.
That gun works well, is very accurate,
but of no use against iron-clads.
The Emperor is trying a gun of his
invention, rifled and made of steel in
side and brass outside. 1 have no faith
in it.
It is from the United Slates that we
expect the production ol the large rilled
gun for sea service, as soon as your cle
ver workmen shall have turned their
minds to the production of built-up
guns of steel or wrought iron.
The heavy gun is much wauled, since
tho battle of Mobile has so much shaken
the confidence in the employment of
I'll iTW.
Willi the preceding gunnery dial, I
close this letter. Bo good enough to be
lieve me always,
Very sincerely yours,
F. rj'Oru.n.vNs,
Prince de Joiuville.
I see in the papers a very bad letter of
Mr. Mason, the Confederate agent. I
wee, also, that the British Parliament is
going to vote an address of sympathy
at the occasion of the dreadful calamity,
it, is very proper. We Frenchmen are
not free to act in a similar way ; but 1
hope, for tlie honor of our government,
that they will do something to show
llieir sense of what is due. to a friendly
nal ion.

Extraordinary and Minister Plenipoten
tiary of his 'Majesty the Emperor of
Brain, The following is a translation
of tlie address which lie delivered upon
theoccasion :—
.Mil. Pkksiiient—l have tlie honor lo
place in your hands two letters from his
.Majesty tlie Emperor of Brazil, eoiiiiiiu
uicatilig to you by one of tlieni the close
of the mission of Be)nor Councillor Mi
guel Maria Lisbon, and by the other my
appointment in the character of his En
voy Extraordinary and Minister I'leni
potentiary near your person. The ex
pressions of my letter ot credence mani-
Jest the high esteem in which my au
gust sovereign holds your person, and
the high interests which connect tbe
I'lnpire with this great nation. Brazil
has never had a thought, Ml', l'resident,
but of maintaining unalterably and of
ever drawing more closely the relations
of friendship and good understanding
between the two countries. This is my
charge, and with this purpose 1 shall
not spare any efforts to respond to the
OohfldenO reposed in me. I shall deeni I
myself very fortunate, Mr. Presidenl, If
in tlie discharge of so honorable and im
portant a mission I shall be able to
merit, also your confidence. This tusk
will bo so much the less ditlicult forme
as I hope by my personal feelings town id
liie United States and by my actions to
win the sympathy of your government,
is elsewhere it isexpressly recommend
ed to meto do. On this solemn occasion,
ottering to you tlie most ardent wishes,
in the name of my sovereign, for the
prosperity of the North American
union, uuderyour wise administration,
| lei it be allowed lo me to express lo you
I directly on the part of my sovereign his
j deep sorrow at the unhappy event ofthe
I 14th of April, which placed the whole
[ nation in mourning, when the distin
guished successes due to tho patriotism
and extraordinary perseverance of your
illustrious predecessor should have
caused it only to rejoice.
To which the President replied as fol
lows :
Mn. Az.VMnr.iA—The imperial letter
of credence which you bring rrrsVltlip
prei'intivo testimony that, you have
maintained so high ;i character uud c.\
erclsed so wide an Influence at home,
that I feel entirely at liberty to assure
I you of an agreeable reception not, only
i in the diplomatic circle here, buiuiuoiig
the people of the United States. I re
ciprocate toward Brazil the good feeling
you havo exercised in regard to our
country in the name of your sovereign.
Brazil is already a great State, and she
has the.elements which enable her to
become a leader among the nations. I
regret that in times past no closer rela
tions were allowed to exist between Bra
zil and the United States. Holding anito
similar positions on tlie two parts of the
American continent, they ought to be
not merely good neighbors, but inti
mately associated together hi politicnl
as well as commercial resources. It is
my strong desire to contribute to that
association. Our policy is one whicli is
simple and easily to be understood. We
wish to promote the progress of civiliza
tion in i his hemisphere, and, for that
purpose, the development of nuterial
resources, the improvement of com
merce, and the introduction, as faHt as
possible, of free, intelligent labor into
the virgin fields of the continent. In
stead or weakening new American States
In our vicinity, we wish to impart
strength to them hy reposing in them a
generous confidence, rather than by in
dulging jeolousiesof their prosperity or
a querulous disposition in regard to tlie
manner in which their governments are
administered. Above all, we wish to
impress them witli the conviction that
all the nations of America, if they would
continue to exist, must aspire to absolute
self-sustaining independence, and to a
perfect political equality with the other
nations of the earth. Tf Brazil shall
agree with us iv this policy we shall
hereafter be not only close friends, but
practically we shall become Arm and
fast allies.
