THE 110RRQRS OF VICTORY
Desperate Acta of the Female Insurgents.
Paris (May 16) Correspondence of the London Time.
I took a walk down the Rue Rivoli, towards
the Hotel do Ville, to judge of the amount of
damage done, and at the corner of the Hue Cas
tlglione became aware of the approach of a
great crowd jelling and shaking their fists. The
cortege was headed by a company of mounted
gendarmes, behind whom came two artillery
men, dragging between them a soiled bundle of
Tags that tottered and struggled, and fell down
under the blows that were showered upon It by
all who were within reach. It was a woman,
who had been caught in the act of spreading
petroleum. Her face was bleeding, and her
hair streaming down her back, from which her
clothing had been torn. On they dragged her,
followed by a hooting mob, till they reached the
corner of the Louvre, and there they
propped her up against a wall, already
half dead from the treatment she
had received. The crowd ranged itself In a cir
cle, and I have never seen a picture more per
fect and complete tn its details than was pre
sented by that scene. The gasping, shrinking
figure in the centre, surrounded by a crowd who
conld scarce be kept from tearing her in pieces,
who waved their arms, crying "Drown her!
drown her!" on one side a barricade, still strewn
with broken gucs and hats a dead National
Guard lying in the fosse behind a group of
mounted gendarmes, and then a perspective of
ruined streets and blackened houses, culminating
in the extreme distance in the still burning
Hotel de Ville. Presently two revolvers were
discharged, and the bundle of rags fell forward
in a pool of blood. The popular thirst for ven
geance was satisfied, and so the crowd dispersed
in search of further excitement elsewhere.
How the Palaces and Private Residences
Paris (May 26) Correspondence of the London Xcios.
Paris shall not exist, if Paris does not belong
to the Commune. Such was their hellish re
solve, and they proceeded to carry oat their
threat of destroying the capital which they
conld not retain. They set to work la three
distinct ways. In the palaces and public oQlces
which they commanded they disposed at regu
lar intervals, sometimes bottles, sometimes pots
of petroleum. When the vessels of petroleum
were arranged at proper distances, one of them
would, oe overturned and Ignited; the names
would rapidly spread, and the whole building
would Boon be past salvation. It was in this
way that the Tuilerles, the Palais Royal, the
Hotel de Ville, the Palace of the Legion
of Honor, and other celebrated public edifices
were set in flames. This arrangement was all
made in the Ministry of Marine, but the wretches
engaged in the work of destruction had to lly
before they conld set fire to the pots of petro
leum which they had planted in the most likely
corridors. There was a second method adopted
for the destruction of private houses. When it
became necessary to retire from a particular
barricade, the Guards tore to pieces the beds
which formed part of the barricade; took the
tow out of the beds, dipped It in petroleum, and
loaded their guns with it. Then they fired the
tow into the windows of the houses. It was In
this way that the block of bouses in the Rue
. Koyale, facing the Madeleine, was set on fire.
Still a third method: Men and women were
going about Paris with bottles of petroleum in
their pockets, or bid about their dresses. They
threw these bottles down into the ground-floors
of every dwelling they could get at. If there
was no room for the bottle to get through, the
neck of the bottle conld get into certain air
holes which belong to the construction of
French houses; the liquid would be poured in,
and a lighted match would be sent in after it.
In this way very many private houses were set
in flames; and many hundreds of women were
taken in the act all day some of them shot upon
Tragical Fate of the Commnnlst Leaders.
Paris May 87) correspondence of the London Times.
The Government troops are vindictive, if not
even brutal, in following np their victory. A
trio of the Communist leaders was captured on
Thursday night. They were Jules Valles,
Ferre. and Longuet. Valles was made prisoner
after the others, in rear of the Theatre du Cha
telet. His comrades had been taken very shortly
before. Valles was dragged forward by the
Versalllists, and one of their non-commissioned
officers struck him upon the seek with his
sword. In his anger and agony Valles struck
back, and Immediately an extemporary
shooting party was drawn np, and fired
into the body of the unfortunate rebel
But Valles had the bad taste not
to die off at once; he writhed, and twisted, and
groaned upon the ground, until nearly all who
were within 6ight and hearing had to avert their
eyes and move away from the sight of his most
horlble Buttering, ice captain commanding tne
firing party told me that "They let him suffer
on purpose," His fellow-captive, Ferre, whose
doom was but deferred, crie out, "(Jul cap-
. tain 1 in the name ef mercy, put him out of
pain," and the appeal was so far successful
that the captors then shot their prisoner dead.
Lefrancais, Gambon, and Amouroux were shot
in the Rue de la Banque, against the wall of the
Stamp i Office. Raoul Rlgault finished bis days
in the court-yam ot the teole Aiintaire. cour-
bet, the painter, who ordered the destruction of
the Vendome Column, was found hiding in a
cuDboard.not quite large enougnto conceal him,
in the Ministry of Mnance, and, attempting
eome resistance, was, according to some reports,
shot on the suot. MaliournaL who has boasted
ever since the fatal 22d of March. when the party
of order was fired upon in the Rue de la fair,
that be gave the order, has aet the fate which
he so richlv merits.
Dombrowski died in the bedroom of the
Hotel de Ville formerly occupied by Mad'lle
lianssmann. The day after his escape from
La Muette he received three rifle sneu while at
a barricade in the Rue d'Ornane. He was trans
ferred from there to the Hotel de Ville, where
he died of his wounds. Delescluze was killed
on Tuesday at the barricade of the Chateau
d'Fau. H h face was much disfigured by a por
tion of a burning wall which had laiieu on it.
His Identity is amply proved by papers found
In his pocket.
Condition of the Streets afterthe Fighting
or m Destruction.
Paris (Hay 2t) Cor retiHindence of the London Times,
The aspect of the Boulevards Is the strangest
right imaginable. I followed them from the
Porte St. Martin to the Rue de la 1'alx. Strewn
ever the streets were branches of trees, ana
fragments of masonry that had been knocked
from the houses, bricks and morUr, torn pro-
clamations, shreds of clothing half concealing
blood stains, were now the interesting and lead
ing features of that fashionable resort; foot pas
sengers were iew ana iar between, the shops
ana caje nermeucaiiy sealed, excepting where
DUiieis nsa maae air noies, and during my
wnoie aiiernoon s promenade 1 only met taree
other carriages beside my own. The Place de
V Opera was a camping ground of artillery, the
Place Vendome a confusion of barri
cades, guarded br Gentries, and the Rue
Royale a mass ot debris. Looked at from the
Madeleine, the desolation and ruin of that hand
some street were lamentable to behold. The
Place de la Concorde was a desert, and in the
midst of it lay the statute of Lille with the head
off. Near the bridge were twenty-four corpses
of insurgents, laid out in a row, waiting to be
buried under the neighboring paving-stones.
To the right the skeleton of the Tuillerles reared
!ts gaunt shell, tbe frame-work of the lofty
wing next the Seine still standing; but the
whole of tbe roof of the central building was
gone, and daylight visible through all the win
dows right into the Place de Carrousel. At the
corner of the Rue de Bac the. destruction was
something appalling. The Rue de Bac is an im
passable mound of ruins 15 or 20 feet high, com
pletely across the street as far as I could see.
The Legion d'Honneur, the Conrs des Comptes,
and Consell d'Elat, were still smoking, but there
was nothing left of them but the blackened
shells of their noble facades to show how hand
some they had once been. At this point, in
whichever direction one looked, the same awful
devastation met the eye to the leftjthe smould
ering Tuilerles. to the right the long line of ruin
where the fire had swept through the magnifi
cent palaces on the Quai, and overhead again
to-day a cloud of smoke, more black and abun
dant even than yesterday, incessantly rolling its
dense volumes from behind Notre Dame, whose
two towers were happily standing uninjured.
The fire issued from the Grcnier d'Abondance
and other buildings in the neighborhood of the
Jardin des Plantes. In another direction the
Arsenal was also burning. On the opposite side
of the river were the smoking ruins of the
Theatre Chatelet and the Hotel de Ville.
RIGHTS OF THE COMMUNE.
Victor Hugo's Manifesto The Preface to
Ills Expulsion from Belgium.
M. Victor Hugo has published the following
letter in the Jndependance Beige:
Sir: I protest against the declaration of the
Belgian Governmeat relative to the vanquished
of Paris. Whatever may be said or done, these
vanquished are political men. I was not with
them. I accept the principle of the Commune;
I do not accept the men. I have protested
against their acts. Their violences have made
me indignant, as the' violences of the opposite
party would do now. The destruction of the
column is an act of high treason toward the
nation. Tbe destrnction of the Louvre would
have been an act of high treason toward civili
zation. But savage acts, being unconscious,
are not criminal acts. Demency is a disease
and not a crime. Ignorance is not the
crime of ignorant. The destruction of the
colnmn has been for France a Bad hoar. The
destrnction of the Louvre would have been
eternal mourning for all people. But the
column will be raised again, and the Louvre is
safe. Paris is retaken. The Assembly has
vanished the Commune. Who has made the
18th of March? Who is guilty, the Assembly or
tbe Commune? History will tell. The burning
of Paris is a monstrous fact. But aro there not
two incendiaries? Let us wait in order to judge.
I have never understood Billloray; and Rigaalt
has astonished me unto Indignation. But to
shoot Billloray or Rigault is a crime. Those of
the Commune, Johannard and La Cecilia, who
snoot a child of fifteen years, are criminals.
Tbtfce of the Assembly who shoot Valles, Bos
(ruet, Parlsel. Amoureux. Lefraneals. Brunei.
and Dombrowski are criminals. Here the
crime is as well in the Assembly as in the Com
mune. First, to all civilized men. the
punishment is abominable; secondly, the execu
tion, without judgment, is infamous. Judge
first, then condemn, then execute. I might then
blame, but not objurgate. You are within the
law. If you kill without judgment, you assassi
nate. I return to the Belgian Government. It is
wrong to refuse asylum. The law permits this
refusal, the right forbids it. 1, who write these
lines, bold as a maxim Pro jure contra leaem.
Asylum is an old right. It is the sacred right
ot tne umortunate. in tne middle ages the
Church granted asylum even to parricides. As
to me, i declare:! oner this asvium which tbe
Belgian Government refuses. Where? In Bel-
glum. I do that honor to Belgium. I offer
asylum at Brussels. I offer it at Place des Bar
rieades No. 4. (M. Hugo's town residence at
Brussels.) Let a vanquished of Paris, let a
member of the Commune, which Paris has but
little elected, ana wnicn l have never approved
let one of these men, were he my personal
enemy especially if he is my personal enemy
KnocK at my aoor, i open, tie is in my house.
lie is inviolable, Should l, perchance, be a for
eigner in Belgium? I do not believe it. I feel
myself the brother of all men, and the guest of
an nations. At au events, a mgitive ot the
Commune with me will be a vanquished one
with an outlaw; the vanquished of to-day with
the outlaw of yesterday. Two venerable
things, as I do not hesitate to say. One weak'
ness protecting another, it a man be an
outlaw, let him enter my house. I defy.
whomsoever it be, to tear him from it. I
speak here of political men. If a fugitive
of the Commune be taken at my home they
shall take me. If he be given up I shall
follow him. I shall sit down with him on
tbe bench ot the accused. For the defense of
the right, the man of the republic, who has
been proscribed by Bonaparte, shall be seen by
the side of the man of the Commune, who is the
vanquished of the Assembly of Versailles. I
shall do my duty. Principles before everything !
It may be amrmed that England will not give
no the refugees of the Commune. Why place
Belgium Deiow iLngiand xne glory oi Belgium
is to be an asylum. Let ns not take that glory
from her. By defending France I defend Bel
glum. The Belgian Government will be against
me. but the Belgian people will be with me. At
any rate, I shall have my conscience.

ENGLAND AND THE UNITED STATES.
Proposed Detrothal of Fred Grant and the
A Washington despatch to the New York
Letters received here from England put the
extraordinary question seriously whether a mar
riare between the son of President Grant and
the Princess Beatrice of England might not be
so arranged as to secure the entente cordiale
between the two countries, Ihe Queen has orl
ginated the proposition, just as she did that for
the marriage of her daughter Louise to the
Marquis of Lome.
The young Princess is only fourteen years of
age, and the Queen's idea in that upon the re
election of President Grant and the beginning
oi his second term in iota tne nuptials be
solemnized. Young Mr. Grant would then be
adepted as a British subject, and immediately
appointed Viceroy of tbe Dominion of Canada.
It is her Majesty's belief that in this way the
feelings of the three countries oi America.
Canada, and Great Britain could be harmonized
as closely as their iuterests.
The letters which communicate this surprls
log proposition are written in perfect good
faith, and by persons of the highest position
in Great Britain. One of them asserts that the
idea really came from Mr. Seward, by whom it
was suggested to the Earl of Mayo in India,
and by the Earl then taken ud and communl
cated to the Queen through one of his lordship's
mends, Lady YVaterparx, a lady la waiting upon
I It is also stated that the matter was intrusted
to the London, correspondent of a leading radi-
cal journal of New Tork. who left London sud
denly for New York about a month ago, com
missioned to sound the President npoa the
subject. This correspondent assured the
Queen's ministers that the re-election of Presi
dent Grant was absolutely certain, and thns
contributed mainly to give them confidence in
the scheme. Tbe agitation now going on in
favor of Mr. Greeley may disturb his plans. But
it may be considered certain that he has opened
negotiations on the subject with the Dent family
and with Mrs. Grant.
A World despatch also says: A telegram
received here to-day from London by a high
cfliclal states that the Anjilo-American treaty,
with her Majesty's ratification, will be sent into
Parliament on Tuesday. It is understood in
London that Mr. J'ieraell, after a full confer
ence with sir SUfTord Northcote, has deter
mined as leader of the opposition to permit
the treaty to be received without attempting to
press any criticisms upon it to the point even
of a serious debate. This information is re
garded here as entirely trustworthy, and as set
tling the question, if there ever was any ques
tion, as to the reception of the treaty in Great
The President's Trip to California.
All the necessary arrangements have now
been made for the President to visit the Pacific
coast. He will leave Long Branch about the
middle of August, accompanied by his military
household, by Senator Nye, of Nevada, and by
ex-Senator Williams, of Oregon. He will visit
Salt Lake City, where great preparations have
been made to receive him by Brigham Young.
From thence he will go to Nevada and San Fran
cisco. At the latter place he will take a ship of
the Pacific squadron and proceed to Portland, tn
A Rumored Progress to the East.
The question is now under consideration In
the highest quarters whether it may not be well
for the President to extend his voyage to the
Sandwich Islands and Japan. It is known that
tne annexation party in the islands is eager to
seenre a visit from the President, in the belief
that be may be induced to favor the movement
for putting that magnificent station in the Pacific
under the United States flag.
in japan the fresldent would be received
with sovereign honors, and as the first Western
potentate ever seen in the ancient Asiatic em
pires, bis presence, It is believed, would be of
eminent benefit to American interests.
CAPTAIN HALL AND THE POLARIS.
The New Arctic Expedition Severely Criti
A writer in tbe Baltimore Gazette makes the
following not altogether complimentary re
marks upon the new Arctic expedition:
It does seem curious, and somewhat of a dis
grace to the United States, that an Arctic expe
dition to which the eyes of the entire civilized
world are turned, and which will cost our Gov
ernment over $100,000, should leave our shores
so badly organized, and wanting in many neces
sary details, as does the Polaris, under Mr. Hall.
Possessing none of tbe requisite nautical know
ledge, never having served in command of men,
totally unused to the peculiar service in wnicn
he is now engaged, farther than having an inti
mate acquaintance with sledge travelling and
Esquimaux life, I cannot but entertain reason
able fear for that complete success to the expe
dition which the outlay of money and the
exigencies of the case demand. The act of
Congress appropriating tbe funds for the
Polar exploration specifically states that
the scientific work of tbe expedition shall be
prescribed by the National Academy of Sciences.
Now. this body of eminent men are not only
dissatisfied with the present organization of the
enterprise, but, l understand, have distinctly
and positively refused as a body to have any
thing to do with . the research, ana nave pro
tested against the expedition leaving the United
States as now organized. The entire arrange
ment of men and material has been in the hands
of Mr. Hall, and how he has carried out his
scheme np to the present augurs anything but
wen lor the ultimate success ot the expedition
and the advancement of our geographical know
ledge and science generally. I understand that
no gentleman has been obtained in this
country to accept the responsible duty
of chief scientific officer. A German naturalist,
Dr. Bessels, who was second in command in
the first German Arctic Expedition, has been
secured as surgeon naturalist; but no physicist
or astronomer, possessing the requisite knowl
edge or experience, can be found willing to
join Hall in that capacity. Three or four such
have been in treaty with him; but, whether
from "incompatibility of views," or for other
reasons, they nave ail oacnea out. in either
can I agree with Hall when he announces
Jones' Sound as the best avenue of entrance to
that unknown region in which is centred the
pole. Almost all the English Arctic ex
plorers, who have each made this matter an
intimate and personal stduy, agree in the
recognition of timlth Sound and Kane Chan
nel as the most probable opening for a suc
cessful effort to penetrate to the pole.
Jones' Sound is comparatively unknown, but
it is well known that the windward side of all
Arctic land is that presenting the greatest difll-
cultv for travelling: as well as ice navigation.
The general tendency of ice drift and wind being
from the northwest, that Bide ot n.uesmere Land
Is fraught with danger and hazard to both ship
and Kledtrn. ThA amount of treoLTanhlcal dis
covery el new coast line could compensate for a
failure to pass into the unknown region lying to
the north oi Kane s ana naze s larinest. it is a
primary axiom in Arctic work to hold on to a
coast line with your ship, ana no lana is known
so far north or accessible as that bordering upon
Smith Bound. I know Hall is very determined
in all his views, and painfully dogmatic in his
opinions, but in a matter where these views
solely lounded upon theory ana reading con
flict with those of practical and well-
tried men, in the interests of science, and for
the sake of success, I would urge upon him the
reconsideration of his route and a change of this
part of the programme. Fortunately for us and
for him, the character of the ice and the con
formation of the floes may compel him to un
dertake a different line of travel. I regret to
see that the responsible position of second
ollicer is occupied by Morton. Whilst I have
every respect for him as a faithful adherent
ot Vr, Kane, as the man who made the
famous discovery of "open water" on that ex
pedition, and as a good steward, I do not recog
nize in any of these the proper fitness for the
position which he now occupies. Sailors soon
find out the qualifications of their superiors, and
In this selection, as well as others, 1 see the ele
ments of discontent and failure. Tbe time of
departare, too, has been delayed so long that I
much dread a useless first winter, even if the
ship be not so nnfortunate as to rival the De
Haven or MqCllntock "drift."

were receivea ny Air. Browne, rno public de
The party took carriages and were driven to
the charmingly-located villa of Mr. Browne,
and arriving there were presented to the scnlp-
tor s lamiiy. Alter spending a iew minutes in
social chat Mr. Browne led the way to the stu
dio, and half an hour was spent by the visitors
in admiring this masterpiece of the Bculptor s
art. The President, being something of a "horse
man," was able to appreciate the good "points"
of the equine of the statue, and remarked espe
cially upon them. The animal from which
General Scott's horse was modelled was brought
into the studio, and opportunity was given for
comparing the two. The animal is a Kentucky
thoroughbred, and has a history which maybe
summarized by saying that it changed bands
several times in a very unceremonious
manner during .Morgans raid in Uhio
and Indiana dnring the war. It was
recaptured from Morgan, and is now in the' pos
session of Mr. Browne. In the course of the
inspection of the model by the President and
his party who were emphatic in their praises
of the work the suggestion was made by Secre
tary Belknap that a duplicate cast ehould be
made, to be set np at West Point, the first
belntr destined for Washington. The sugges
tion was heartily seconded by the other mem
bers of the party, ana prooamy, alter a recom
mendation by so distinguished an amateur board
oi inspectors, congress win do inciinea to mase
the needed appropriation for the duplicate
casting.. The model is to be sawn is pieces in
a few days aud removed to Philadelphia, where
the work of casting will be performed.
