The opponents of the bill say that its

Randall, the leading opponent of the
bill, says: ,' I know that its passage is

LoNDox, March 1.-President Thiers
has issued a proclamation to the people
of Paris. He appeals to their patriot
ism and wisdom for the preservation
of order. ,"Famine," says Thiers, "com
pelled the surrender of the forts, and
obliged the Government to open nego
tiations. They were only able to ob
tain an extension of the armistice by
consenting to a partial occupation of
Paris. The French army will occupy
the left bank of the Seine to secure the
execution of the convention." Thiers
urges the people not to break the con
vention, and thus entail frightful mis
fortunes upon France.
The order of the day issued by Vinoy
says : "The Government URnhesitating
ly confides to the National Guard thi
cam of the city, and trusts in their de
votlon and intelligence for the main
tenance of order, as the least agitation
will furnish a pretext for irreparable
misfortunes, which only calmness and
dignity can avaet." .
The proclamation of Thiers and the'
order ot Vinoy have produced a good
improsseon in Paris; but military pre
cautiops re taken to prevent disorders.
