Thanks to the Monde Jlltistre, which this week has printed a lot of pictures on the subject, I ant able to answer the question, in a rambling sort of a way, it is true, but which aay not be without interest to readers of The Dispatch. Then, as now, the Pont-Ueuf was the heart of the capital, the center of movement and circulation, of the flow and ebb not only of inhabitants but of foreigners who came to Paris. A few steps from the old bridge was the Chatelet, a building com posed of three towers, two of which pro tected the entrance to the city, and at the summit of the other was a gallery or bal cony surrounded by an iron balustrade, that was reserved for the gatekeepers and night watchmen. HOEEIBLE DUNGEONS. This Chatelet had its cachots or dungeons, in one of which the prisoner was fastened by chains in such a manner that he could neither hold himself upright nor lie down, Sl -,r,BAtSlttttT SBi - graod Laiy in Her Wedding Dress. ' and where, owing to nitrations of the Seine, his feet were always in the water, and he had for companions toads and reptiles. Into others the unfortunate yictims had to be let down by means of a pulley. At the side of the entrance to these dungeons was the morgue, so called from the verb morguer, which means to stare at, to look at fixedly, as one would gsze on a dead body when anxious to identify it. The morgue of the Chatelet was composed of a very dark hall and a little room raised some few steps and badly lighted by a garret window. In this room the dead body-was washed with water from a well, which was still in existence in 1840, and was used by a little restaurant in the Rue Pierre-au-Poisson, just where the Chatelet Theater now stands. The pillory, in full view of the shops, was an octagonal tower topped with an extin guisher shaped roof, while on a platform stood the machine with horizontal holes in which the head and feet of the victim were placed. The worst of it was this machine "went up and down at frequent intervals, and the unfortunate devil in its embrace was thus kept almost continually before the public FASHIONABLE BESORTS. . Then, as now, for that matter, the Palais Horale was the unique spot ot its sort on earth, and has often been called "the capi tal of Paris." A hundred years ago every body went there, and no one found it easy to drag himself away from this Aladdin's paiace. it was morning and evening the rendezvous of all idlers and elegant women. Under the chestnut trees swarmed the crowd of "mus cadins" or swells of the period, and among them were the Duke de Chartres, after ward King Louis Philippe, Mile. Xauge and Alme. Cabdeille, cele brated beauties of the last days of the monarchy, and the Marquis de Bagueville, who tried to cross the Seine on wings, and suc ceeded in break Ing his leg by fallinr on a hnnt belonging to some Otty Soldier of a Ce washerwomen. tUTV -Ago. The boulevards, for more than two ceii - turies the paradise of Parisian loungers, was at that time the favorite rendezvous of the "gens de bel air," as were called the prom enaders. TheT consisted then of two broad avenues with four rows of trees.two of which marked off the space reserved for vehicles. In the middle causeway, which extended over a space of more than two leagues, was a long uninterrupted line of carriages, wherein the most dilapidated vehicles mixed with those of the latest and most elegant style, poor fiacres and poor horses, de icribcd for us by a cotemporary as being covered with persDiration, tired, worn out, and tortured lor 18 hours daily with the heavy weight imposed upon them bv the public CAFE CONCERTS. The cafes were well patronized, and at their doors a concert was given from 2 r. ar until 11 p.m. At the corner of the boule Tard and the Ene Caumartin was a novelty like the hanging gardens of Babvlon; the roofs and balconies of certain houses wero converted into gardens, and from them was a good -view of the extent of the boulevards where some splendid hotels had been al ready erected, while in the distance the hills orMontmartre with their legendary wind mills formed the horizon. On the 8th of Jnne, 1781. the Grand ; Opera, then situated in the Palais Royal, .ttbs completely destroyed bv fire, but under , Queen,, Mane Antoinette's directions, who i gave for that purpose some land belonging to her on the boulevard St Martin, was built a hall within three months under pun of a fine of 80,000 ir it was not finished in that time. There were those who said that since this opera only took 84 days to build, X-!MW& It would irretreviably crumble away, so it was decided to test it with a gratuitous en tertainment This incident, which is un fortunately historical, does little honor to humanity, but it showed the building tobe sa'e in all respects. In the grand opera of those days were such artistes as Lays, Cheron, Miles, Maillard and.Gavaudan, all of whom sang well, but still more wonder ful was the grace and extreme lightness of the danceis, Guimard, Saulnier and Zach nerie, who seemed scarcely to touch the ground and their like has never 'been seen since. Mile. Guimard lived in Asiatic luxury in a hotel situated in the Rue de la Chaussee d' Antin, and it was simply crowded "with art treasures, A FECUMAE WAOEE. The company also included Westris, the "god of dance," as he called himself, and who possessed the lightness and grace of a sylph, ulso Gr- aei, wnose move ments showed more nobility and aplomb, ,and Del boy, famous for the power of his beautiful tenor voice. The Prince de Poix laid a wager concerning this singer with the Count d'Ar tois for 200 louis, that Delboy on a calm still night, could stand on the hill of Montmar- tre, and sing a sustained ra so clearly that it could be heard at St Denis. The experiment was made and the prince won his Parts Xewsboy of 17S9. bet, the fact being made known to the singer by the letting off a rocket from the tower ot the old Abbey. Apropos, among the other popular sing ers of the opera toward the end of the last century was Mile. Maillard, but who made her debuts as a dancer and ob tained a brilliant engagement at the theater of St Petersburg. On her return to Paris in 1870 she entered a school of singing and J Street Dress, With "Fanan" Bonnet. two years later made her debut with great success, and her admirable voice, beauty, imposing figure,and majestic manners made her the most magnificent personification of the grand lyric art of that period. She was a very eccentric person, but this did not diminish her success and popularity. a celebrated duel. The chronicles of those days relate that an officer having, one afternoon in thelSoit de Boulogne, in the presence of Mile. Maillard, who was disguised as a man as was her custom, insulted a lady whom he accused of having deceived him, the goddess of the opera struck him with a whip; a duel with pistols followed, Maillard wounded her ad versary, and' he learning the sex of his op ponent hastily left the city. The Comedie Francaise' then occupied a beautiful house near the Luxembourg that later on became the Odeon Theater. When the first days of spring had arrived, every body on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fri days, under pretext of going to the little church of the ancient royal abbey situated at the extremity of the Bois de Boulogne, went into the park to show off thein finest carriages, horses and livery. Dilapidated fiacres made way for new and elegant coaches, and the latest thing for style was the wiski, an imitation of English vehicles, as dangerous for pedes trians as they were for those who rode in them, on account of their shape and great height, but that wan of little consequence lor the most fashionable ladies never dreamt of appearing at Longchamps in any other kind. Later in the day, when the fashiona ble promenade was over, the gay public went to admire the charming house that the Count d'Artois was having built at the bot tom of the Bois, a small, but charming chateau, outside ot which were grottoes and wild spots, while inside were boudoirs draped in blue satin, and this little bijou, built in two months, he called the Baga elle, and it is still standing.

CIobi Spreckeli Talk Abont the Trait and HU Own Frotpects. Philadelphia, April 27. "I am not in the Sugar Trust, and won't be until my dying day," said Claus Spreckels, the sugar king, as he stood in the hall of the Strat ford just after his journey from the Pacific Coast "I will be in Philadelphia for some time now," he continued, "looking after my interests here. "When my refinery will be finished it will be the largest by far in the country. . "It is said, Mr. Spreckels, that you have not yet secured raw sugar for the Philadel phia refinery. Is there anything in that story?" "I have nothing to say to that," was the answer. "That is going a little too far into a man's private business. I see the papers say that we are all right as far as our bone black goes. That is correct. We have a vessel here now with a big load ot it, and all the rest that is wanted can be had with out any difficulty. I have just organized in California a company with $5,000,000 capi tal to erect beet sugar refineries. The work will be begun at once, and we will soon have some splendid plants on the Pacific" Mr. Spreckels denied that he was in any way interested in the recent rise in the price of sugar. "Short crops were responsible for a part of it," he said. The millionaire refiner is accompanied by Mrs. Spreckels, his daughter and his younger son. He is well and hearty. Cared of Malaria. George Dixon, 22 Florida street, Elizabeth, N. J., writes: "I have been using Allcock's Porous Plasters for the last five years. Some two years ago, after having been sick for upward of six months with malaria, I found myself with an enlarged spleen, dyspeptic, and constantly troubled with a headache, and my kidneys did not act very well either. Having spent most of mymonev for medicine and medical advice, I thought to save expense 1 would use Allcock's Porous Plasters, two on the small of my back, one on the spleen, or ague cake, and one on the fit of the stomach, just under the breastbone, continued using the plasters about SO days, changing them every week. At the end of that time I was perfectly well, and have remained so ever since." su BEST VELVET CARPETS AT 81. Tho Same Grade Can't be Bought at Wholesale In the East at This Price.

The colored folks in Carolina are organizing a Fanners' Alliance. At a meeting in Union county yesterday the organization was effected and officers elected. The purposes of tho alli ance are set forth in the following: The object of the Colored Farmers' National Alliance and Co-operative Union is to elevate the colored people of America by teaching them to love their country and their homes; to care more for their helpless and destitute, and to labor more earnestly for the education of themselves and their children, especially to Improve themselves in agricultural pursuits: to become better farmers and laborers, and less wasteful In their methods of living: to be more obedient to the civil and criminal law, and withdraw their attention from political partisanship; to become better citizens and truer husbands and wives. The organizer, John D. Norn's, said: It is by no means a political organization. Xhe condition of things and our present situation sets forth to us that our happiness and fortune are not in politics. We have been so often de ceived by political tricksters until our hope in politics is lost We have been looked upon as a political prey long enough. We expect, tbroogh the Alliance, to let all parties know that our race is no longer a mission field for politics. Wo expect to confine ourselves to, the Interest of that which will build up our homes and make our firesides more pleasant. It is not workiug against the interest ot the white man, because anything that is against the interests of the white farmer would be against our interest BASE JB.LXj. RECREATION PARK.
