TRI -WEEKLY GAZETTE AND COMET.
Time waH wlion this old nnd woll-known

tbinffs cb nil fco with thnin. The advent of
War,followed, alas ! by so many sail and
startling changes in tlib condition nnd
i 'tirsuiU of tho Southern people, roudorerl
it necessary to drop the daily publication
and assume instead a simple weekly issue
The War terminating, and the daWn of a
more qniet and prosperous future nppour
ing, afford now encouraging earnest of a
gradual though sure return to tho arte and
pursuits of pouce, on tho part of our people.
Embracing tlio occasion, thorcforo, to
fall in and keep pace with the steady pro
gross towards a brighter condition in the
affairs of our common country, tho under
signed have formed a mutual association
fertile purpose of carrying on the new»
papor, job printing and bindery business
of tho UattetUand Gwmt o(fio«.
Dating from to-day, t.be UuzfU* and
ihiwl emerges from a weekly to n tri
weekly journal. To meet the enlarged
expenses consequent upon this alteration,
we confldently rely tipon a geiiorous in
crease of patronagn. This wo shall strivo
to merit by tho lubor and attention which
wo intend devoting to tho sovorul depart
ments of business wo have undertaken
mutually to oonduct, comprising as above
stated, tho newspaper and job oilitos and
bindery.
As soon aa practicable, the tiazeHn and

N apoleon's R kturn to P aris.—
Says tho New York lhrulâ?$ Paris
correspondent of tho 13th ulto ,:
The Emperor returned to Paris
on Saturday evening , after an ab -
sence of forty days in Algeria . Ho
was received with great enthusiasm
and loud cries of " Vive V Empereur 1 '
greeted him on his way from the
railway station to the Tailleries . —
The Empress and Prince Imperial ,
who bad met him at Fontainebleau ,
rode in tho same carriage with him
from the station . His Majesty looks
well and is considerably browned
by the African sun . In the evening
the public buildings and many pri -
vate houses wero illuminated ' und
hung with flags . The Emperor may
well be proud of the reception he
received , and at the fact of finding
Paris all safe and in good order as
when hi; left it . Since that tiino
great and stirring events have oc -
curred . Your President has been
assassinated aud the republican ele -
ments of France have made his
death tho excuse for extended de -
monstration «. Ilia Majesty ' s own
"rhrr cousin" has come out in open
opposition to tlie known principles
of the Emperor in the Corps Légis -
latif '. Sharp and determined at -
tacks have been made upon his poli -
cy by a well organized and able op -
position , and what in former time »
would have been the most formid -
able danger of all —a hundred
thousand workmen out Of employ
have been clamoring for broad and
work , and yet with all these dan -
gerous elements at work there have
been no barricades thrown up , no
signs of revolution , and the Empe -
ror on his return is greeted with tho
enthusiastic shouts of the workmen
of tho Faubourg St . Antoine through
whose quarter lie took paiua to ride
on his way to the Tuilleriee . Jt may
not be love , and it may bo fear ,
which mako Paris so peaceful now -
but at any rate the fact exists .
