nuMocialed with many memorable
nceneB. Tub mob entered it on the
20th of Juno, 178:!, and it wan attack

the August following. It wus the of

Kirnl Consul, and when ho became
Kinperor it formed one of tho impe
rial ptiliicen. In 1808, Napoleon ba-
gnn the Northern pallery to servo na
it comntiiiiictitioii with tho Lonvro.
After the RoMorution, the Louvre
continued to be the chiof rosidenco
of the King ond Iloynl family. After
the Revolution of 1K80, when the poo
plo attttt'ked and took tho palace,
(Juno 20th,) Louis Philippe fixed his
residence in it, nnd continued to in
habit it until tho 24th of February,

Tho exterior of tho palaeo was grand
and imposing. Tho extreme length of
tho luscndo was ii.lt) yards; its hreuillh
3t yards.. Owing to the difToronl
pen oils at which it was built, its ar
chitecture wus not uniform. All that
wealth ntitl tnsto could accomplish
wus employed under successive nion
arvhs to einbclinh its intorior. Tho
hmperors private apartments- vera
gorgeously decorsled. 'J'ho theatre
could uccomoduto 800 anoclators, and
was used as a supper room whon balls
wcro given at Court. Tho chapel of
tho pulai H was rather plain, nnd had
a gallery and ceiling resting upon
Doric columns! of stouo and sfucco.
The Hullo do la l'aix wus used us a
ball room, and was 140 feet long by
30 feet broad, and enntuined splendid

on its walls, and uround the ball wtru
busts of distinguished generals and
naval commanders, while portraits ol
the great Marshals of Franco ndornod

This wus used as a ball. room on Stale

(,'" tltn PALACE or-THS LOUVRI. ' 1 '
Tho curly htsiory of 'th,' Louvre is
obscure; but from the great tower
which Tliilip Augustus built in 1214,
as an urt-cuul and atute prison, this
huge.piln gradually grew.- Charles
v. lit leu up the Louvro ol his period
as a royal rosidunco, adorning it with
gardens and terrncos. In tho reigns
of tho Sixth, Sovonth and Eiihth
Charleses, ' and tho Eleventh and
Twelfth Louises, it was Converted in
to a fortress. Francis 1. Invited his
great rival, Charles V., to accept bis
hospitalities.. Il was in this mon
arch's reign that the tietunl Louvre
had its beginning. ' Pierre LcsootiOiff1!
ot me gi-cuiusi arcnitccts or tno ro
nnissunco, assisted by the sculptors,
Jcun Goujon and Paul 1'oncino, was
intrusted with tho work. Horlio, nn
architect, of Bologna, built one of the
galleries and covered it will) a ler-
raco under tho auspicos of Henry IV
This monarch couoefvod the idoa of
joining the houso with tho Tuilerics,
u projact which was adopted hy Louts
Aiv., inspiretl Dy t.'oloerl, who doubt
loss wished to ossocialo his ministry
with such a work in imitation of the
builder of tho Palais Cardinal. Aflor
tho death of Louis XIY. littlo was
done until the middle of the lust cen
tury, whon tho architect Gubriul was
employed to finUh tho llireo facades
coimnoncod by Colbert's arehtiect,
Claude Perruult, and tho vestihtilo of
Ruo Marengo wus completed by Souf-
flot. Aftor the cumpuign of Iluly, the
art tt'cusiiros brought buck to Pans
required suit.ihlo galleries. It wus do
terminod to prepare tho Louvre for
thctn. Tho great Muircaso of the
Museums of Ancient Art, th. stair
cases on llio twoexlremo ends of tho
colonnade, tho Egyptian Museum, the
chambers for the Council of State, and
other portions of tho Louvre worn
built. M. Thiers, when Prime Minister
of Louis Philippo, proposed to spend
18,000 francs on thecomplolion of the
palaco, but the suggestion was not ac
cepted. After the revolution of 184S,
2,000,000 francs wcro appropriated to
tho restoration of tho Apollo Gallery
and tho general repair of tho building:.
Tho decoration of tho intorior was in
trusted to Delacroix. Tho now Louvre,
begun in accordance with the plan of
tho provisional government in 1852,
was completed in 1857, nt a cost of
Hfl.OOO.OlM). It was built by Visconti
nnd Leftiol, TIloTulterlcM and Louvro
form on J palace now ami .oovor sixty
acres. The Louvre is situated on the
right bank of llio Seino and consists of
the old and new Louvre. Tho old
Louvre forms a square 670 feci long
and 438 wide, enclosing a quadrangle
of 400 feel square. The fame of its
Corinthian eolotinado on tho eastern
fiiciido. looking towards tho Church of
St. Germain I'Auxerroit, is world wido
The now Louvre consists of two lateral
piles of buildings projecting at right
angles from tho two parallel galleries
which joinod tho old Louvre with the
Tuilerics. Between the Kite deliivoli
and the Square Napoleon III. they
Iihvc n front of 300 foot, intersected by
three pavilions, to be ocenpiod by the
Department of Stato and of tho Into
rior, by tho Administration ol the Te
legraph, tho imporiul library and a
permanent exhibition of fine arts.
Thore is also in the Louvre the council
chamber to bo used as an assembly
room for tho public bodies of tho na
tion on tho opening of tho Legislature
and on such occasions. It communi

During tho long duel of tho feudal
ages between the monarchy und the
nobility, the Communo, tho "Hanse,"
as il was originally culled, of Puris,
(its origin, liko that of the " Hanse
towns" of Germany, referring to a
community of merchants which as
sumed fiscal rights over the navigation
of tho Seine,) made itself tho ally of
tho King. 1 ho meetings ol Hits hotly
were held first in a house nn tho quay,
now culled Megisserio. Thenco they
were transferred to a building on the
pluco now known as tho Place du Chit
telet, and this building was called the
" Parlor Aux Bourgeois," or talking
place of tho burgesses. Philip Angus
tns next gave the merchants n rci'ugo
in ono of the towors of the fortifica
tions which he roareil around Paris.
It was in 1857, five conturies ago, that
the muniuipojily was lodged where it
hits ovor siuco remained. In that year
tho famous " Provost of tho Mer
chants," Stephen Marcel, bought a
houso on tho Pluco of tho Public Exe
cutions, Lu Grove-, citllud the " House
of Pillars." Neurly two centuries
later, whon the Italian genius domin
ated Franco in art and politics, the
" House of tho Pillars." wus pulled
down and a now edifice was begun
under tho supervision of Siguor Do
minico Bocurno do Corlona. Under
tho Terror this edifice was cxtomled
by tho annexation to it of tho confis
cuted church of St John cn-Grevo
and Hospital of tho Holy Ghost. .
The first Napoleon, uinong Ins many
grand projects, contemplated sweeping
away nil but tho building of the six
teenth century, nnd developing the
Hotel do Villa into ono of the most

On tho other bund, sleep is not liko
