OUR PARIS LETTER.
Politics, Society and Art.
Specul Correspondence of the B r.J
Paris, Hay 4th. .
If politics be not very clear, poli
ticians are beyond question waxing
terribly warm. It will be a mercy
when the Assembly meets to allow
perspiring deputies to cool them
selves by a few stirring debates,
which will act like blood-letting.
Not a single person can foretell the
important events that the next ses
sion is destined to grapple with; the
unexpecteLpro;es ever too much of
a certainty, for any prophet to risk
a reputation. The cardinal fact K
Uiat the people arenotafliietel with.
tho fever which consumes deputies
and 'publicist!, they know the wait
ing game is theirs, and that the
President will allow no party to give
an unfair blow to France: Fully
aware that they can never again
unite the majority they now possess
in the Assembly, is the most power
ful of reason that the Monarchists
will hesitate before plunging into
measures that must infallibly lead
to a dissolution of the Chamber.
The attractions of office, the luxury
of power, are the breaks that come
into play when the road to ruin Is
too rapidly pursued. It is not im
possible, therefore, that the new
menaces against ministers, against
the constituting of the Septennate,
will end in a compromise. No par
ty in the present Assembly is nu
merous enough to enforce its pro
gramme. It remains to be seen,
can moderate men, having no "axes
to grind, form a temporary working
majority to carry the necessary
measures preparatory to decreeing
the general elections. It is the coun
try alone, that can silence by its
collective vote the ambition of aspi
rants, and put the house in order.
The lionapartists are in a terrible
state of alarm because the Counte
de Chambord is rumored to have
re-entered France. The nation
docs not agree with their view, that
the end of the world is nigh because
the country counts one citizen
more. This very indifference ought
not to escape the careful attention
of the Count's advisers and parti
zans; before he can arrive at the
throne, Henri V. would have to
convert nearly 30,000,003 of people
to see in him their guide, philoso
pher, and friend. He possesses no
majority in the Chamber no more
than in the country, so that he is
not an apparition to frighten the
timid into making their wills, and
commanding the last rites of the
church in advance. It is not clear
that any difficulty would-be placed
in tho way of the Prince Imperial's
return to this "country, unless he
adopted tho lalogne and Strasburg
routes a la mode his papa. Thiers
committed a blunder in ordering
Prince Napoleon out of France, and
however few may have been the
successes of the present government,
they merit every praise for allowing
the Prince to live in France and to
demonstrate his inutility. Let all
pretenders take their walks abroad,
and read in the scoffing eyes of the
inhabitants a "don't you wish you
may get us?"
The Postmaster-General is realiz
ing the hopes expected from his pro
motion, lie Is becoming a rretr
trader in letters ; he has succeeded
in negotiating a postal treaty with
Russia, and Is in a fair way of effect
ing the same with the United States.
Much allowance must be made for
Francp n Jjer etlbrts to find corn in
Egypt It was Thiers liinelf, exs
celient statesman in other respects,
that believed the foreigner could
not be too highly taxeo". lut the
foreigner slipped through his hands,
covetousnoss burst tho bag. No
where Is this moro palpably shown
thaift.n the case of the post office,
an institution that all French gov
ernments never view as anything
but a monopoly for making money.
The postal cards have proved a fail
ure the experiment never had a
fair trialand tljo scheme is down
for interment' at 4n earjy day, In
land postage is too high, and the
tarritF is condemned by naturally
reduced receipts. But in the case of
foreign postage the dimunition on
tljeyear has been three quarters of
a million of franps, or nearjyijajf a
million on the first quarter of". the
present year. These figures apply
to forolgn postage alone. The fact
is, persons with a largo correspond
ence devote their attention how to
transmit their letters under cover to
Ixuidoi), Brussels or Geneva, to be
re-expedlted. One gentleman as
serts that he can by this means econ
omize as much as 70 per cent. It
would pay some firms to salary an
employe outside of France to repost
their foreign letters. The govern
ment is well aware of this.
Bespooting the revenue generally,
tho quarterly returns jqsVpuhlishpd
indicato a slight falling off in re
ceipts, and that it Is hopeless to .ex
pect anything more from an In
crease of the indirect taxes. New
sources of revenue must be discov
ered or direct imports increased.
Tbp latter is almost a Virgin source
of revenue, and tle alacrity, almost
the pleasure, with which personal
taxes are paid in this country, must
ever act as a sursttm cordna for a
perplexed finnuco minister,
Freuoh protestauts are anything
but a happy family at tho present
moment ; at no tinio were they of
late especially an united one.
Since the Calvinlsts forming o3 per
cent of the total have been legally
recognized as the orthodoxRefornicd
Church, all outside their religious
charter belief in the divinity of
Jesus pljrNt and aeccptance'of the
Biblo as the rule of Faith are ex
cluded from State recognition. It
is not Unitarians who alone object,
but from a different point of view
disinclination to accept any test-act
.several Evangelical protestants
thus find tlieni9evg driven into the
ranks of the minority. The ejec
tions are nowbcingheld throughout
France, for the appointment of lay
counsellors or elders, the "true
blue" ticket being of course tri
umphant. To be qualified to take
part even in these elections, voters
must sign, that they believe In tho
Scriptures. The Intensity of tho.
strife ma3' be estimated from the
cjosely balanced forces of the ortho
dox, and, till they become the ma
jority, trio heterodox antagonists.
"Ralls are like concerts, most
-numerous at this season, for their
closing arrives. The Turkish Am
bassador's and the English charity
balls, were successes, as they ever
are, differing like the stars, only a
little in glory. One splendid ball
always, pjosely resembles another.
The theaters commence, tq be deser
ted In favor of open air concerts and
cafes, goon the managers will be
reduced to complaining that they
cannot find a friend to accept a pass.
This time they are to be pitied, for
Paris has this year went to bed in

The Fine Arts' Exhibition has
onpnwl. and oertainlv in the num
ber of pictures no annual display
has ever surpassed the present. In
the salon tfhonneur is an equestrian
portrait of Marshal McMahon; for
merly the portrait of Thiers was
suspended in the same place; it is
the nail allocated to Presidents.
There is another painting intended
to make a sensation, but which the
crowd looks at with indifference
that of the Prince Imperial. He
Is in mourning, with the cordon of
the legion of Honor for he picked
up a ball near Spichern; beside him
Is a boquet of violets, half-veiled
with crape, and one of the volumes
of the Correspondence of Napoleon
I. Remove the accessories, and
tho boy-figure remains without
color, or expression, and anything
but calculated to kindle enthusiasm.
The hanging committee and the
jury of admission have shown real
toleration in admitting this political
portrait; its symbols create a smile,
but will make no converts. It
would not be a bad idea to start an
exhibition of all; the dispossessed
rulers at large, including therein the
army of pretenders. Every wor
shipper would of course pay to
ctidden the eve bv a look at his
saint, and the proceeds might be
applied to the fund for the widows
and orphans of the ware, a kind of
Geneva Cross charity, for the vic
tims of glory or defeat
Some years ago one of the leading
stars of the demi-monde was "Ro
salie;" she led a purple and fine
linen life, had her establishment,
her carriage, her horses. Her in
fluence could make the fortune of a
tradesman and the happiness of a
modiste. She shot from her sphere
suddenly, as all her tribe do, and
was as speedily forgotten as benefits
conferred. A few days ago an old
young woman was found dead in a
sort of den constructed in the no-man's-land,
where rubbish is shot
down ; the body lay on a heap of
rotten straw, and was covered with
as much vermine as rays ; in the
hand was a brandy bottle, nearly
empty, and near it a few crusts of
mouldy bread. It was Rosalie
perhaps in her days of innocence a
"prairie flower' too.
On the tomb of Talma in Pere
La Chaise Cemetery, a new born
child, healthy and strong, has been
discovered, made up in a bouquet of
lilac, violets, and lily of the valley.
If mothers desire to get rid of their
shame, even this plan is better than

Of all the food adulterations yet
