Fornsv's Visit to the Empress Engenie. Forney's Loudon Letter (7th) to Philadel phia Press Chiselhurst (Kent) is a lovely village, with a population of 3,300, about forty minutes by rail from Charing Cross. You can walk from the station, if the weather is fine, to Camden House, the Eng.. lish residence of Eugenie, the ex Empress of the French, but as the day was gloomy, we drove over in a fly (cost two shillings), and reach ed the outer gate in about twenty minutes. As we were expected, we had not long to wait before our presentation. Camden House, the residence of Her Majesty, was chosen after shehsd landed atRyde in the Isle of Wight, on the 9th of September, 1870, having escaped frome Taris in the midst of the revolution on the 4th of the same month. Her passage over the Channel was in itself a romance. The mansion is of three stories, built of dark stone, beautifully in laid with white, with two wings, were conducted from the ante-room into the drawing room by a cham . berlain, where the Empress receivs ed us, and I was immediately ims pressed by her exceeding grace and beauty. Time has dealt very gently with her. Born on May the 5, 1825, she is now in her fiftieth year, but does not look forty, ) and she seemed in better health r and were a brighter aspect than when I saw her in Paris Palace of Industry on the 2th of July, 1867, h.t i -I- when the Emperor Napoleon dis tributed the prizes to the successful competitor at the Universal Ex position of that year. Dressed in deep mourning without the sligh test ornament, and speaking Eng-. lish perfectly, she opened the con versation and asked questions with out reserve in regard to our Inter national Centennial Exhibition. I described the extent of Fairmount Park, the severaly groups of build- mS now in course or construction. .he amount of money raised" the action ot the national 20vernr4ent, FCiwui ueamjr auu uer aristocrat-nn.-l thA visit- nf tho TTr,; SftD nslish. rather than W 3 tt a,a ., v. .t.;n.i..t ca ,.naA ut irroftt. nlnasnro th SfQtrr,OT1f r,f Lie visit- fln,1 fifhia satififnn t progress of the work.

To the question whether I thought the Trince Imv perial would be well received, I ventured to express the opinion that his welcome would be mo3t cordial, and that our people held the fact in grateful remembrance that to the statesmanship and lib- erality of the First Napoleon wo are indited for the armpit, nf tW valuable temtion of the valuable . e t 1 i. tii. t tfW ;ti, fi, iio.. kuW, .v 6v,uv. 1"U1"'1' tion of French sympathy during our biiuggiciui uuuuuguw, or the most cherished oi our national .

I have always felt the greatest interest in the United States,- but we are the creature of circumstances. "We cannot tell what may transpire to-day or toi morrow or a few months hence,' evidently referring to poilitical con tingencies. Just as she was bidding adieu I placed in her hand one of the large lithographs of the main Expositions, and since my return to my apartments have forwarded her the last publication by the Cens tennial commissioners containing plates of all the other edifices. It is impossible to convey an idea of the winning grace and can dor of this lovely woman. I should rather say cordiality than candor; nor would the word 'dignity' fairly typify the peculiar charm alike of her manner and her conversation. She talks fluently; articulates her words clearly, and suprised me by her stories of information, showing that she was close reader and think er. Others were waiting in the an.e-room as we passed out into the park, and on our road to the station J did not hesitate to give uterance to my satisfaction at one of the most delightful interviews of my life. A republican myself, more so now than ever, I could easily perceive the great influence she exercised over her husband; and as I recall the fact that she had really risen from the people, and that her grandfather was the English consul at Malaga, it was evident that she had been educated for her singular ?"tl.n7.- er mther, Lonna Man?

His brilliant, although short career has impressed his followers and the world with the power and grandeur of genius when guided by deep re ligious principle. lie was spared the last test to which the great Lee was subjected. Jt was the fate of Lee to survive the shock of battles and after furnishing us an example of what is due to his afflicted coun try by the soldier whsn overpower. ed and crushed he has left us a character pure and exalted and grand, to be loved, admired, and revered. I will not speak on this occasion of his genius as a great captain, but prefer to allude to him in his still greater character as fa true, noble man. Lee as a success ful general, the victor of many hard fought fields, is great; but Lee as the true Christian, tho pure, unseK fish man, seeking the path of duty and following it, whether in tho hour of triumph or in the day of disaster, is greater still. Lee with the flush of victory upon him, as he is portrayed by the artist mouni ted on Traveler at Spotsylvania among his advancing regiments, is grand ; but Lee writing to his faith ful lieutenant, who had been woun ded at Chancellorsville, "I con gratulate you on the victory which is due to your skill aad energy," is grander still. Lee as described at the Wilder ness, again at the head cf his ad vancing lines, but forced to retire from the front by liia men (uneasy for his safety) with the assurance that if he would go to the rear they would go to the front, is glrius ! but Leo after the repulse at Get tysburg, eaying 11 AW this is my fault," and assuming the responsi bility for the reverse, is more glo rious still, it is sublime showing how true greatness, generou3 and magnanimous, can bear itself in de feat. Lee's military genius is con ceded and he will unquestionably rank among the foremost captains cf history ; but Lee's noble man hood, exhibited in the hour of diss aster at Appomattox, and in the subsequent days of adversity, is a priceless legacy, as an example, far more valuable than his military re nown. Lord Bacon has told us that suc cess was the blessing of the Old Testament, but adersity that of the New, and that tho virtues of advert sity are of higher order than the virtues of success. While Washington represents in the history of this country the vir tues of adversity.

The peach crop in Maryland this year is said te exceed in extent any that has been known for many years. The means of transporting peaches to market heretofore provi ded will it is anticipated, be insuffi cient this summer, and extensive preperations are making by the railroad companies to supply the want. The fruit will soon begin to ripen in large quantities, and great expedition will have to be used in getting ready a suflicicnt number of cars for transportation. In for mer years, even when the peach crop was very large, 700 cars were all that were required to convey it to the market, but this year is n estimated that the Philadelphia Wilmington & Baltimore Railroad Company alone will require J, 000 cars for this purpose, and as many as 300 cars will have to be used by the railroads running East and West. Fears are even expressed that it will bo impossible to Ind means for transporting all the pea ches that will soon be ready for market. Care has to bo taken in the construction of tho cars, in or der to avoid bruising the fruit. Tas senger car trucks are generally us ed for this purpose, as they run with less jar than ordinary freight truck. To insure thorough ventil ation the peach cars have openings in tho ends and sides to admit the air and latticed doors and win dows. Along the Dcleware road several miles of side tracks have been constructed fnis year to ac comodate the increased number of trains that will have to bo run. The estimate of the crop in the counties along the Deleware Branch Railroad is 4,513,000 baskets, while the largest crops 'produced in any former season was 1,211,500 bask ets. Along the roads connecting with the Deleware Railroad it is estimated that the crop willl amount to 1.928.0Q0. ,trui.l-;n . -wi 0,441,000 baskets, which is more than treble the amount produced in any previous year. Resides this the poach crop in New Jersey will be very largo. Jefferson Davis.
