Paris Correspondence (Slay 9) of the London Sewn.
The interior of M. Thiers' house is beautifully
arranged, and full to overflowing of costly works
of art, bronzes, pictures, enamels, medallions,
porcelain, rarely-bound books, engravings
cabinets, and curious.f urniture. The study of M.
Thiers is surrounded breast-high with book
shelves loaded with brilliantly-bound volumes.
Above the shelves on the walls are a series of
well-executed copies in water color of the great
master pieces of Italian art, most of them
Raphaels; and all about the room, ou
6helves, in recesses, on tables, there are
scattered bronzes that remind one of
the glories of Italian sculpture here
of Michael Angelo, and there of Verrochio. The
position of the writing table seems to indicate
some peculiarity of eyesight. The table is placed
between two windows, the writer sits with his
back to the pier which separates the two lights,
and the light on either side slants over both
shoulders, lorming an angle of shadows ou the
page before him. When the writer lifts his eye
irom the desk to the wall opposite, he
will see a fair copy of the Last Judg
ment; and there is nothing in the room upon
which be can fix bis eye which will not sug
gest to him mighty works of art, leading his
thoughts to all that is most perfect in form and
color. When, after entering this interesting
room, the curiosity is a little satisfied with the
treasures of art which fill it, what strikes one
roost Is the order of the presiding genius. M.
Thiers Is all for order everything in its place,
and if it is not in its place, there is a paper to
eay why. The room is at the top of the house,
and it will be the first to sutler at the hands of
the destroyer.
Parte, May 9, Correspondent of the London Tetejraph,
The removal of M. Thiers' furniture began
this morning. Three vans arrived at his house
at 9 o'clock, and brought the furniture to the
Garde Meuble, Qua! d'Oreay. I visited the house
of the Chief of the Executive Power. In the
Cabinet of M. Thiers was a small iron bedstead
he is said to have a mania for camp life.
Over his desk was a portrait of himself and of
bis lady and child. In the small dressing room
there still remained many articles of a
lady's toilet. The floor was covered with
ladies' boots, band-boxes, etc. On the table of
one of the drawing-rooms was a copy of
"Lodge's Peerage and Baronetage." The prin
cipal salon opens through three glass doors on
a Dleasant but not lame garden. The Commls-
salre de Police, in charge of the employes of
the uarae juenuie, wno were removing tne fur
niture, took every precaution that not the small
ess article was abstracted by the crowd outside.
The house will be demolished almost imme
diately. The people in the crowd, in bitter lest.
said that Thiers' 6hells would never reach his
own house.
An Acrimonious Wrangle In the Senate
General Disclosures of the Secrets of
Executive Sessions.
A "Washington despatch to the New York
World says:
The Senate has virtually decided that It will
Bend its two imprisoned recusant witnesses, to
gether with two other recalcitrants in the per
sons of the manager of the Western Union
Telegraph office here and its operator at the
Senate, to the Grand Jury of this District, to be
Indicted for a misdemeanor by refusing to an
swer questions propounded to them by the
special Senate committee appointed to ascer
tain who purloined a copy of the treaty of
Washington. A pending resolution to discharge
the first two from custody will be passed to
morrow by the Senate, and will have that
effect as well as to drop further Senatorial in
vestigation. The report of this committee submitted to day
makes no recommendations, but simply submits
the evidence and the fact of the contemptof two
additional witnesses. There was a warm, irrita
ble, and needless discussion in the open session
of the Senate this afternoon as to the individual
responsibility for the recent investigation, which
ended in several Senators openly stating in their
defense the proceedings of the executive session
on the resolution authorizing it. Mr. Wilson
Inaugurated this by a slip of the tongue by
charelne Mr. Conkling with having prepared
the resolution in secret session, aud Mr. Carpen
ter With caving oiierea .
As Mr. Conkling had just denied in a pains
taking personal explanation that he had insti
tuted this investigation, or in effect had any
thing to do with it, this lapsus lingua of Mr,
Wilson fell on the Senate with the greatest pos
sible merriment and astonishment. Mr. Conk-
liner colored up crimson and addressed the
Senator from Massachusetts very much after the
manner in which Mr. Nye not he of Nevada
went for the gentleman from China. It did
turn out, however, just as Mr. Wilson stated,
that Mr. Conkling, at the suggestions of other
Senators, had drawn the resolution and that
Mr. Carpenter bad ottered it. Mr. Wilson.
after being severely lashed, got penitential and
did not want to harm anybody. Finally one
Senator after another got up and Bald no one
Senator but all the Senators were responslble,and
thus the two hours' debate ended in a general
love-feast. Preceding all this, Mr. Chandler
made a speech in earnest denunciation of the
Senatorial reporter of the executive sessions of
the Senate who bad done such excellent and
faithful Bervlce lor tne press ior ten yeass. Jie
was not a Democratic Senator, he said, for he
was eoually accurate in reporting the Kepubli
mn caucuses, for Democrats were not admitted;
but he wanted his reports stopped and the guilty
Senator expelled. A pleasant ripple of merri
ment ran around the outer rows of Senatorial
BPat at this charge, and many a sly glance was
given toward the seat of one or two Senators

The Flag-ship Colorado Ashore In the
AVoosuag River The Corea Expedition
The United States Steamer Benecla In a
A letter from a gentleman on board the United
States steamer Colorado, flag-ship of Rear
AdmiralJohn Rodgers, dated Woosung, China,
April 12, says that, when proceeding up the
river, she grounded on a mud-bank at high
water, and, being unable to get her afloat, Bhe
was obliged to remain until the next tide.
The water fell fourteen feet, leaving the ship
high and dry, but she lay easy, and so little did
she feel the effects of her position that the state
room doors open and Bbut as easy as if she was
afloat. The ship came off in due time, and pro
ceeded to her anchorage uninjured. At the date
f the writing she was preparing to lead the ex
pedition 10 jorea.
The Corea squadron will consist of the flarr-
sliln Colorado, steam corvettes Benecla and
Alaska, gunboat Monocacy and tender Palos.
The ships take with them a crew of shipwrecked
coreans picKea up by an American vessel, who
will be landed an soon as the fleet arrives, and
who will naturally inform their countrymen of
tne Kind treatment received at the bands oi the
eople who come to treat with them.
should Admirei Jtodgers tall in bringing the
Coreans to terms, he will use force, and is pro
vided with all the appliances for vigorous pun
ishment for their past misdeeds. Should the
cxpcditlion accomplish its ends by peaceful ne
gotiations, will return to Hong-Kong about
the middle of May.
Another letter from tne Lnitcd States steamer
Benecla states that they have had seventeen
cases of small-pox on board, but at the date of
writing all hands were well. Two of the sick
were left in the hospital at Yokohama. On the
passage from loKOhama to llakodadi, and
while in the Kurisino, or Japanese Gulf Stream,
the Benecia encountered a cyclone, in which she
was nearly lost.
The first cutter was wasnea irom the davits,
the dingey stove, the ward-room and cabin
flooded with water, and the ship wet from stem
.to Btern below. Following this she encountered
a severe gale of wind up to 40 degrees north
latitude, and for five days was trying to get to
windward under canvas, out making leeway all
the time steam was raised, and getting under
the lee of the land, she arrived into llokadadi.
All hands well on both ships.
Startling Accident at Cleveland.
The Cleveland Leader of yesterday says:
One of the most startling and unexpected acci
dents which could have occurred took place yes
terday afternoon, resulting in the falling of the
new fceneca street bridge which spans the canal.
The cause of the accident is as follows: At about
four o'clock the man in charge of the bridge, as
well as others in the vicinity, observed a span of
mules, drawing a wagsn heavily ladened with
barrel staves, approaching upon a run. They
plnnged upon the bridge, the driver being unable
to control or check their speed. They took the
right hand track, and might undoubtedly have
croBBed without causing the accident, had the
wagon not struck one of the iron supports of
the bridge with fearful force, tearing it from Its
fastenings and doubling it almost to a semi
circle. At this time three teams were upon the
bridge, one within a few feet of the landing,
while two horses, drawing a canal boat, were
directly underneath.
As soon as the shock was experienced the
bridge commenced to sway and settle, and al
most instantly fell, precipitating those who
were upon it into the canal among the timbers
and heavy iron portions of the structure, and
crusmng vo instant aeain tne two Horses attacnea
to the boat, fortunately, no one of the drivers
was killed, although the one who had charge of
the mules was severely injured, to what extent
is not yet known, as he was immediately taken
in charge by a surgeon, whose opinion is not
Juiiy given.
It Is indeed wonderful that any could have
escaped with their lives, as above the noor ot
the bridge, as it lies in ruins, is a network of
beavy iron castings and trames, irom wnose iau
little less than a miracle could have shielded
them. This bridge is what is known as a truss
bridge, and was erected last fall by McNalry,
Claflen & Co., and has always been considered
perfectly secure, and would undoubtedly have
stood the most severe tests for many years had
not its structure been interfered with by the
breaking of the portions described bv the mo
mentum of the wagon. As Is usual with bridges
of this class, the public has been warned against
driving faster than a waiic wmie crossing it.
Bold Robbery of a Jewelry Store In Lan.
caster, fa.
The jewelry store of Mr. II. L. Zabm, in Lan-
cester, was burglariously entered on Wednesday
night and robbed. The Intelligencer of last
niirht says: The thieves took with them eigh
teen cold watches, most of them finished in
buntine cases, about nfty sliver watches, two
hundred cold rings, and seventy or eighty gold
chains. I be thieves effected an entrance by
opening a grate in the pavement in tront ox the
store, which communicates with an Inner
hinged grate, opening into the cellar under the
front window.
The stolen goods were taken from a showcase
on the counter, and from the bulk window. The
thieves were either alarmed before they had
made a thorough search of the premises, or
concluded that they Had made a suinclent haul
for one night, as they left untouched a great
deal of valuable gold ana silver in tne window
and showcase they bad robbed, while the ad
joining showcase, containing a great deal of
solid silver ware, was not even opened. Neither
was the money-till, nor the other cases and
drawers containing many valuable wares. There
were about nfty customer watches in tne store.

with their plunder In the same way they entered
the premises, belDg unobserved by either the
public or private ponce.

Extraordinary Session of the Senate.
Washington. May 26. Mr. Howe, from the Committee
on Printing, offered a resolution, which waa adopted, in
structing that committee to inquire into the oot of
fmeumatic tubes between tne l apitoi ana rutiiio 1'nnt
ng omee, tor tbe transmission of packages; and also as to
s telegraph line, to report at the next session.
1 lie unalr stated the nnnnisnea Business to oe ine reso
lution of Mr. Wilson to discharge Messrs. White and
Kamsdell immediately on the adjournment of tbe present
session, with the pending amendment of Mr. Davis, of
Mr. Carpenter said he bad nothing to de with starting
tbe investigation, and denied tbe often-repeated news
paper statement that he had been made the catspaw of
M r. Conkling, tie bad received anony mons letters threat
ening that the entire machinery of the American press
wouid be directed against bim personally if ne should
proceed with the investigation. He, too, bad incurred
snch displeasure ior moving a resolution to commit tne
witnesses. He bad never seen any other course taken in
cases where witnesses refnsed to answer.
As to the correspondents being in prison, tbey were tar
nished with two oi the best room in tbe Capitol, where
tbey fared sumptuously. Instead of this they should
have been committed to jail as any justice of the peace
would have (tone, for the witnesses were undoubtedly in
contempt. If this had been tbe case the Senate would
have bad the required answers before now. He believed
now, as be bad expressed heretofore, that the treaty was
not made publio throngh the State Department, tbe Pub-
no fnnter, or tne commissioners, out it was maae putino
through tbe Senate by some gross negligence or careless
ness. He commented severely on tbe correspondents of the
New York Vribunr, and. among other things, said that a
malicious libel was perpetrated on them in a recent com
munication purporting to give an account of tbe examina
tion of Mr. Tinker, and which aooount Mr. Tinker had. in
a note to bim, denounced as untrue. He also spoke of the
morality ot tbe press, ana wanted to snow it tne corre
spondents of Newspaper Row would sanction what the
? ii- correspondent had done, and at the close of their
enstod give them a complimentary dinner.
ibe New York Tribune was an alias for Horace Greeley,
who bsd befriended bim by acts of kindness; but Horace
Greeley is in Texas delivering an agricultural address,
and has left the i'ribuva in the care of a fop and pretender.
Wbitetaw Keid. Mr. Uarpenter continued at some length
fn opposition to tbe pending resolution to discharge the
ZYi'iun corresprndent at tne ena oi tms session.
Mr. Kenton sent ud a naner. which by request he caused
to have read, Bigned by Messrs. H in ton, Hoynton, Shaw,
and Knowlton, newspaper correspondent, saying mat
Mr. Tinker made the statements published in tbe New
York Tribune despatch, but the said statements were not
as bitter toward the committee as those Mr. Tinker made
in their presence.
After further details by Senators Thurman and Davis,
of Kentucky, the latter withdrew his amendment, winch
was to the effect that tbe discharge of the witnesses
should net effect legal proceedings instituted under the
set of January, 1K57.
Mr. Nye renewed is, and in the course of his remarks
said that if in the examination of Ku-klux outrages, a
witness had refused to testify, instesd of being furnished
with comfortable quarters in tbe caiiitol, he would have
been sent to that most loathsome plaoe called the jail.
until he answered tbe questions propounded to htm. The
correspondent's of the 'J ribtmt are in contempt, and are
amenable to the law of the land.

The Desperate Struggle of an Erie Comluc
lor viiix a tar 'i mei.
From the Port Jervis Gazette, May 82.
For tbree or four months the freight trains
on tbe Erie, while delayed on the eastern side
of Bergen tunnel, have been repeatedly robbed
bv professional car thieves, uetectives nave
been detailed to ferret out the perpetrators, but
with poor success. The thieves secrete them
selves on the old cars standing on the side track,
and when a train stops they enter the cars with
false keys, and take whatever Tamable goods
thev may find.
Last night conductor John L. Marvin, of
extra 33, discoverdd three thieves operating on
a car in his train. He grasped one of them by
the collar. The other two ran away. The thief
struck Marvin a beavy blow on the left side of
the head with what was evidently an Iron bolt,
cutting a deep gash about two inches long. Al
though partially stunned, Marvin sun retained
his grasp on the thiei's collar. The thief was a
powerful man, and dragged Marvin under the
car to the other side of tbe track.
Tbe conductor managed to draw his putoi,
but the thief grasped if before be could use It.
There was a strap on the pistol through which
Marvin had one hand, the other still graspiug
the coat collar, which was tearing away. The
thief seized the pistol with both hauds, and by
a sudden wrench broke the strap, after sinking
It deep into the flesh of one of the conductor's
fingers, cutting a severe gash, lie then freed
himeelf from Marvin s grasp, and took to his
heels, leaving his bat la possession of the deter
mined conductor, who was covered with blood
when he returned to bis cabcoe.
