extraordinary degree. A Jlavre Journal
statei that there are not less than a thousand
emigrants now lodging in the quarter of St.
Francois alone awaiting vessels to take them
out. Two days since elthtv persons left
Havre for England In the hope of getting off
The same journal remarks that this In
crease of emigration coincide with a great
extension of the commercial relations between
France and the United States. Not less than
twenty-fite vessels are shortly expected at
Havre from New Orleans, one from Texas,
and fire from Mobile, all laden with cotton.
A considerable quantity of the same material
Is also being shipped for Havre from New
York, along with other merchandise. In
short, the Import trade at Havre has not
been so brisk for fire years past.

A mob si no cotemporary fulminates the
following terrible sentence: "Happily, un

confidence their motives escape disguise, and
Justice spontaneously darkens the august

"The wearing of the green" Is rather dan
gerous, as appears from the following para
graph, whleh we clip from a foreign Journal:
"Green robes, it appears, are not very much
the fashion on the continent. Professor
Machka and Dr. Lerck, of Prague, have
analysed a green dress, which was recently
worn at a ball in Vienna, and discovered In
the Jhlrty-slx metres of which It was com
posed no less than two ounces of arsenic"
A few years ago, when Preston Brook
truck down Mr. Sumner, the seat of the
Massachusetts Senator, so long vacant, was
an impressive testimony against the outrsge
committed by the South Carolinian. Now a
seat from New Jersey is empty; its ocoupant
struck down by Mr. Sumner, who is ap
plauded for an act done In the interest of the
pirty, and a clearly unjustifiable as that for

The Princess de Metternlch has made a
great sensation In Paris by appearing at the
lost ball of the Tu Merles In a dress of block
satin; It Is true, the body wo adorned with
white lace and the skirt with nosegays of red
roses; but court etiquette Is so formal that
black shall only he worn on "mourning
days," It Is hard for courtiers to recover
breath after such a violation of law. A Paris
newspaper says: "It Is impossible so loon
after suoh a coup d'etat to say what will be
all the consequences of It."
The United States and Brazil Mail Steam
ship Company has a memorial before the
House Committee on Post Offices and Post
Roads, asking for an extension of the route
from Rio de Janeiro to Montevideo, and Bue

ayra and Puerto Cabello, in Venesuela,
touching at St. Thomas, will make the first
trip from New York on the 5th of April.
The company has a subsidy from the Vene
zuelan Government for carrying Its malls,

Whatever may have been the mobility of
Mr. Jorrsoe'i policy, says the Pari Vebatt
of March 10th, either before his elevation to
the Presidency or since, tt 1 certain that at
this moment he Is defending with far more
Intelligence than his adversaries the true in
terests of the Union. The war was under
taken by the North against the South, not
only in the name of liberty against slavery,
but for the security of the American Union.
Can those who contested then so energeti
cally and legitimately the right of the con
fedefstes to recede from the Union now with
out flagrant contradiction deny them the
right to re-enter It.
After the frightful war which has so pro
foundly Injured the country the United
State can have no more pressing duty than
that of reconstructing that Union, which Is
the foundation and strength of their unity,
power and influence. To oppose the plans
for that purpose pursued by the Exeoutlve
power to exclude by special laws the Rep
resentatives of the South 1 it not. In real
ity, to prolong the state of war, and to per
petuate dissensions and hostilities which
every effort should be made to efface? With
out doubt this work I difficult, and the
lately rebellion Statei ought to re-enter the
Union only under efficacious guarantees
against a new rupture; butttls not by a
system of absolute 'exclusion and perpetual
suspicion that they are to be obtained.

Tui March statement of the publio debt,
which will he published next week, will not,
as reported, show any reduction in the prin
cipal, as compared with tho February 'exhibit,
as no new issues or conversions have been

will show a considerable Inorease of the bal

Tub St. Louis Republican Is Informed that
the order detailing Gen. Sheridan as a mem
ber of the Speolal Army Board to meet In St.
Louli reaohed him in New Orleans Just aa he
wai preparing to go on more important ser
vice to the IUo Grande frontier. The troops
there are said to bo In a disorderly condi
tion, and fears were entertained in conse
quence that new complication! might arise
between our Government and the French or
Mexloani on the other ilde of the rlrer. Ho
deemed tt necessary, therefore, to go thither
and regulate affairs In that department so as
to maintain order. Tho Secretary of War,
therefore, did not repeat the order for Gen.
Sheridan's presence In St. Louis, and tho
hoard will doubtless proceed to business
without him,

Prnssla Liberty of Speech Shut Down
on the Pruealana.
From the London SMpplof Gaiette, March 14 )
jjoia iuansneia'i aavice to a young juugu,
never to (rive the reasons for his decision.
ought surely to be laid to heart by the judges
of the Prussian Supreme Court. They bave
decided against the liberty of speech In the
Chamber, and instead or contenting mem
selves with the nromuleatlon of their decls
Ion, they have been indolently Ill-advised to
publish their reaaoni.
Like all things German, this document Is
of inordinate lengtn ana oi more man pro
portional obscurity. The meaning of It may.
however, be condensed Into one sentence
that the eighty-fourth article of the Consti
tution, on which the deputies have hitherto
relied for protection In the expression of their
opinions, secures Impunity for the expression
of such opinions at tbey may have arrlrod at
by the exercise of their understanding, but
not for the statement of facts
A more contemptible quibble was never put
forth, nor one which will less bear Investiga
tion. How an opinion can be formed on a
question of fact without the exercise of the
understanding it is aomewnat uimeau to im
agine. The publication of a judicial decision
bated unon such a distinction Is surely sign
of the subserviency of the Judges, who have
strangely rallen away since napoieon ue-
oi&reu ion "more were juugva iu AJciiiu.
The New York Bond Robbery
NEwnunvronT. March 30. J. P. L. Weit
colt, Marshal of!thls city, being In New Yotk
on business of the United Etates Treasury
Department at the time of the robbery of
Mr. .Lord, gave tne subject nis attention,
and, sending to Charles town, obtained each
lniormauon as lea to an interview witn jir.
Lord, to whom he communicated bis suspi
cions. Mr. Lord being very credulous, arranged
for a second meeting, at which two detec
tives were present, tbey having been notified
of the meeting. Mr. Lord declined proceed
ing, and notified Mr. Westcott that further
negotiations must be carried on through the
detective polled. Mr. Westcott waited on
umteaciates juarsnauuurray, of new iora,
who nromntlr furnished two of his deteotlvee.
Messrs. Poore and Donshea, with orders to
render Air. neitoott every assistance.
Dn Mh4.. ...4. (...!. IO Hf. TIT..
cott saw his man at the New Haven depot,
In New York city, who took the train, fol
lowed In due time by Mr. Westcott and the
detectlres. Soon after the train started
Westcott went Into a baggage ear, and see
ing baggage with his man's Initials on It,
securediU detention. Returning back, he
found Jones asleep, and awakening him and
calling him by name, Westcott informed him
he was a prisoner. At first Jones was some
what surprised but seeing he was caught
yielded up and was Ironed.
The party kept tn the train nntll reaching
West Boston, when, It being desirable tu
avoid Boston, carriages were taken, and they
rode around to Chelsea, and arrived here
safely last week, on Tuesday afternoon. Sinee
that time Jones has been closely guarded at
a hotel.
An examination of the baggage disclosed
eight bonds of $1,000 each, payable to Rufui
L. Lord. This proved that Wesoott had se
cured the right man.
Detective Heath, of Boston, came down
for consultation, the arrested man being
known to him. Heath went to New York,
and In company with Detective Young, of
New York, at once commenced following np
the troll.
The details of the robbery show It to have
been one of the boldest thefts erer perpe
trated. Jones engaged Lord's attention
while three accomplices robbed the safe.
After the robbery, the four proceeded to
Central Park and examined the contents of
the two boxes and of the pocket-book, at
which they were perfectly aghast, so enor
mous did It seem to them. Detectives Young,
Jones, and Heath left the city for New York,
with their prisoner, this evening.
Nitw York, March 30. One hundred and
eighteen thousand dollars of the missing
bonds stolen from Mr. Lord hare been re
covered, and the remainder, It Is expected,
will be obtained.
