ICorreipon denca of the Philadelphia Evening Bulletin.
Paeis, Tuesday, June 9, 1868.—The Court
leaves, the Tulleries this morning for the Palace
at FontaSnebleah; holies the Emperor has
changed his mind within the last few hours, a
thing which. In his present “vacillating” mood,
not unfreqnently happens to Kapoleon 111.
There are projects of longer journeys spoken of;
but the head of the government in Prance is still
too important a personage to go further off
while his . Chamoers are sitting, or , bury
himself in some snug retreat, like good
Queen Victoria of England, and leave
his ministers to take care of them
selves! The session seems likely to be dragged out
t 6 a considerable leDgth. We are just informed
that tbe Budget will probably not be ready for
discussion till towards the end of the present
month; and the Commission of <the Chamber, the
Government and theConseil d’Etat are squabbling
so long about the loan, that it seems doubtful also
when that matter will be finally agreed upon and
settled. The Chamber evidently grows more
testy and festive every year about money;
and certainly it is not to be wondered that it doe 3
eo; for there probably never yet existed so
extravagant a government on the face of the
earth as that of the Becond Empire; When I say
“extravagant,” I mean In the sense of the enor
mous amount of Its expenditure; not that more
is wasted by It,’of even spent improperly, except
so far as all money Is spent improperly where
more is spent than either a nation or an individ
ual can afford. It is under the latter category that
the financial delinquencies of the existing regime
tn France must be classed. The Emperor has
spent, on the whole, perhaps, we always except- |
'ne such outrageous fooleries (as M. Thiers called
them) as the Mexican expedition. But then he
has gone on spending,' Bpending, as though he
really believed that the resources of the country
he,governs were, a? he ,once himself)
enned them. l ‘incpuisables." There has been ho 1
feature of his reigD more marked than this spend
thrift habit; end it is one which his enemies, both
within and without the Chamber, never weary
of pointing out to the attention of the
country. There has just appeared, for instance,
in the Retue da Deux Honda, apropos of the
new Loan and the Bndget, a Btrong article on the
financial. operations and extravagant tendencies,
of the present government. It is a powerfully
written and elaborate review of the entire sub
ject, from the pen of a writer well calculated to
treat of It, M. Andre Cochut; and It is scarcely
possible to Imagine a more startling and dama
ging statement of the way in which the
public purse has been managed by those
to whom it is entrusted. The objeet of the
article Is to demonstrate that no previous
government in France ever “borrowed”, so much
money, applying that term not merely to direct
“loans,'' but to every means used for “raising the
wind”—as the present. And when I say that ac
cording to the writers summary of the sum so
raised, tbe entire amount has been no less than
4,322,000,000 francs, you will agree with me that
if he makes good such figures, his case is a very
strong one. Of course, the above prodigious ex
penditure is altogether apart from and over and
beyond the produce of the regular and increas
ing revenues of the county. It is dif
ficult to control or appreciate the value
of such statements; but every item
is put down, and the Government challenged to
contradict them if it can. The appearance of
such statements, jußt when new loans and
budgets are before the Chamber, rouses of course
the attention and jealousy of the country, and
compels its representatives to puton a semblance
at least of watchfulness and, surveillance. Ac
cordingly, the Loan Commission wishes to re
duce the amount from 440 to -ill millions, and
demands a strict and separate account of the
way in which the money is expended. Above all,
the Commission seeks to pledge both the Cham
ber, the Government and the country itserf to a
peace policy. ' It declares that “it cannot be
too . often repeated that the present armaments
have no aggressive tendency,” but “are only
meant to place the materiel of tho French army
and navy on a level with modem progress;" and
that the Commission is convinced that the Govern
ment, “like the entire country," is “desirous only
of peace, and determined to maintain it.” I have
no doubt that reiterated assurances on both
the above points will be insisted on by the
Chamber and given by the Government,when the
Loan Bill comes up for discussion. The country
is getting sick of uncertainty, and sick of extra
vagance and taxation.
TheEmperorhasbeensaiittabe unwoll."~But
the attack (of rheumatism) must have been very
slight, for I saw him out yesterday, looking as
well as usual. . 1 , ;
While the Court remains at Fontainebleau," tbe
Emperor will, it is said, be able to complete, and
publish the second volume of the History of
Caesar, which is now far advanced. I believe
there is no doubt that Napoleon lII.' now wishes
t 6 be elected a member of the Academy of France,
and to bejone of tho Forty, and that he grounds
his claim to this literary distinction chiefly on
the historical • composition on whicb-he is now
engaged. Jle is a cjtrlons compound, this Heaff
of tls Secobd-'Emplre. He. hits puzzled most
men during his life, and the true appreciation 'of,
his character will perhaps equally embarrass the
future historian who shall write his reign. ;
The Grand Prix de' Paris, the international
race, as it is termed, for 100,000 francs,and a mag
nificent piece of plate, -added by -the Emperor,
wasmn for, as usual, oil Sunday last, in the
midst of a concourse of people estimated at Borne
two or ihreo hundred thousand. The English,
who, partly In deferencc.to public opinion, partly
for want of a horse, had not appeared' on this
Sunday race-course for the lost year or so, this
time put In a competitor In the person of Lord
Hastings, a dissipated young noble, over head
and eare ln debt. Hls horse, the Karl, was
successful, and carried off. the prize, to the great
disgust of John Crapaud, who does not like to see
French money go into English pockets. The
winner netted 137,200 francs, besides the piece of
plate. The Emperor; Empress and Prince Impe
rial were: all present, and are announced by the
Moniteur. as haring been “enthusiastically re
ceived;” The concourse of carriages In the
Champs-Elyeees, going and returning from the
race,’, w.ois quite marvellous by the number
and splendor of the .equipages.. Every
onO goes as if going to Court, with
servants In fall dress liveries, coachmen lit
bag wigs and eflk stockings; horses’ heads decor
ated with; bouquets of .ribbons lor,, flowers, ike.;
and the female Inmates of the carriages attired in
prodigions toiUtta de co<trtes, pr racing costume
of (he most extravagant description! ' The Grand
Prlx Is the closing event of the fishlonable sea
son, and hosts of people are leaving town this
morning, like the Emperor' and Empress. \
The French accounts of the Havre Exposition
are much less favorable than some that have ap
peared In the English press. The Figaro says it
la an “immense imposition;” and even th pDibaia
represents it os a mere copy in mlnlatnre of the
one of last year, and of course very Interior In
every respect. . All accounts agree In stating the
preparations at the opening to have.been greatly
behindhand, and hardly any thing to have been im
| its place.

~ Bomb, May 27th, 1868.— Last Sunday morning
bavlbg, in common with all the friends of the
Rev. Dr. McCloskey, lately elected Bishop of
Louisville, ah invitation to be present at his con
secration, I went down at So’ciockto *he Church
of the American College.'' This .. found all
decked out with gay hangings and flowers, i
and crowded to the almost. The simple,
earnest manner with which the Cardinal
Reieach, the officiating Bishop, performed
■he long service, and the suggestive "nature
of every detail,- were very, striking. Two
other Bishops assisted the Cardinal, Monslgnor
Vitelleschl and Monsignor do Meitxte, Cardinal
Barnabo, and several other prelates and dignita
ries of the Chttrcb being present among the. con
gregation assembled. The Prior of the Irish
Dominicans, Father Mulooly, of St. Clements,
and the Sectors of the Irish and English •Col
leges, Dr. Kirby and Dr. Calligan, were all there.
When the religious ceremony was:terminated
we all met in the refectory of the
College, there to offer - [personal congratu
lations to the new: bishop, and to partake
of • refreshments in the form l of coffee, choco
late, water-icts. and cakes. There were about a
hundred and fifty present at the ceremony and
coilatiOD. two cardinals and half a dozen bishop's
sitting with- Dr. McCloskey, at the head of the
long table, which was decorated with exquisite
fresh flowers in handsome stands. Dr. Chatord,
the Yice-Rect6r,now 'takes the position of Rectoir,
in replace the newly-consecrated bishop, who
will shortly leave Borne to preside over his'dio
cese. Probably he will return before the end of
the year, however, if the report prove true that
in December will be held the Ecumenical Counci).
Among other on dits in Rome the conjectures
regarding the probable increase or decrease of the
French army of occupation and the foreign ele
ment in the Pontifical troops are extremely con
tradictory. . The fact is beyond doubt with regard
to the latter, that there have been desertions to a
considerable extent from the corps of Zouaves
and otters, and that the strong measures which
have been adopted have not hitherto succeeded
in preventing many who fonnd themselves
dissillusione, from returning to their own
countries. Statements are made by the Roman
correspondent of the Naxione, of Florence, the
unreliable nature of whose Roman news is really
remarkable when contrasted with the rest of that
able paper, to the effect that only a few enthu
siasts are likely to arrive now from time to time,
scarcely sufficient to fill up the blanks caused by
desertion. Bnt Instead of this, we are expecting
here before long the American regiment. 1,000
strong, sent out by the Catholics ot America to
he maintained here by the committee free of
all charges, to the Holy. See. - General Carrol
Tevis, ‘oi Philadelphia, has received
from the Pope the appointment of Lieutenant-
Colonel of the Legion. It will possibly be re
membered that this officer distinguished himself
in the Turkish' service, where he fought in the
Crimean campaign against the Russians. After
rejoicing probably in the title of Bey, Tevis,dlige
Bepno, grew so “keen to see his homo again,”
that'he returned to America, and afterwards,
when the war broke out, entered the Federal
service under Gen. Rnfns King. He was made
Colonel of a regiment of rebel prisoners who en
listed in the Northern army, and he received bre
vet rank for his services. After the war he mar
ried, made a runaway match of it with the beau
tiful daughter of a well-known Jewish family,the
Florences of. Philadelphia, Tfie lady’s family
were Indignant at this marriage with a Christian,.
and Mr. Florence proposed to cut off his daugh
ter from any share in his large property, and
they all went immediately into deep mourning to
testify thatihey considered her as dead to them
in future. But Mr. Florence is said to
have died lately without "making any will,
wherefore, la belle Juive will eome into
her legal share, and receive some
three hundred thousand dollars after all. General
Tevis was already created, 6ome months ago,
one of the Pope’s private chamberlains; those
gentlemen who appear at . the high functions of
the Church in Spanish cloak and ruff and sword.
His promotion to this honor and to the Lieuten
ant-Colonelcy Is creating much jealousy among
the noble Romanß. Especially they object to his
being tolerated, indeed encouraged to remain
here; a Catholic husband of a Jewish wife, when
many Romans, united to. Protestantß, cannot,
on this account only, show their faces here in
their native'city;' where ’ such marriages are
looked on as discreditable and Invalid. Some of
tho more dissatisfied among the English and Irish
Zouaves have declared that as soon as the Ameri
can contingent Js7 established, with an efficient
commander and officers,' they will endeavor to
obtain permission to enrol themselves under the
same standard, and rally round the flag, and
shake themselves free from the petty annoyances
they feel now subject to at the hands of French
and Belgian and Bavarian sergeants and corporals
and subaltern officers whose self-complacent au
thority 1 > 1b extremely -irksome to tho
bold Britishers. They find" that the
faithful duty under orders from men socially and
intellectually, generally speaking, much their in
feriors, is a bitter draught to swallows; Their en
thusiasm is continually subject to dampers, and
the self-sacrifice and devotion they eome ready
to offer (in theory) at the feet of the Holy Father
lose all poetry and illusion when they find it ne
cessary to submit, for discipline's sake, to tl)e
control of men whose , commands, issued in ; a
foreign language, are obeyed withA grudge, and
often much resented in private. The modern
Crusaders feel quite as rebellious occasionally to
foreign authority as dld tbose of old In Palestine.
Will Vlciona Abdicate ? j
u [Echoes from Tho Clubs.) v ' 1
The House of Commons, having made up its
mind to put an end to tho" Church, is now Bald to
contemplate recommending Her Majesty to abdi
cate. what that omnipotent Chamber-will next
attempt we cannot venture to guess.
It would be a very pretty embroglio If the
Queen, -who is evidently weary of queenehip.and
of London,and of everything except the memory
of the Prince .Consort, were to give up the whole
business. If we felt perfectly assured that the
Prince of Wales was thoroughly np to the work
of a King of England, In the most difficult crisis
since* Charles I. k lost his head," we should say,
the sooner the better.' At present democracy 18
kept In check by the fact that a lady holds the
sceptre ; bnt these are no times for such courte
sies, and if monarchy la to be saved, it mast be
by the brain and will of a boro monarch—and
England has been prolific in boro monarchs,
since the days when Alfred saved her from heath
enism. < An Edward, I. would be the. man for the
moment : will Edward VII. be in any measure
likehlm? '
:.. .The teadeamen,would probablyllke, Her Ma
jesty to abdicate, contemplating; thereafter abrilr
llant metropolis, a joyous court, with a gay
young king and beautiful young queen, happy
themselves, and making the world happy. Ah,
but' fconslaer—what other issues must arise?
Here la a whole array of republican rascality,
ready to spring a) the throat of Royalty; and the
instant s king ascends the throne of England the
struggle must, commence.. Tho gentlemen of
England are strong enough and resolute enough
to save Alexandra from the fate of Marie An
toinette, hut Whether they will awake early to
the stern earnestness of: the coming, struggle Is a
doubtful matter. - ;• '
At any rate, whatever,the House of Commons
and London tradesmen may think, It would be
dangerous for her Majesty to abdicate at this
moment It would accelerate a crisis for which
the resisting forces are unprepared. Many in
deed who read this will fancy that we ore . alarm
ists; will Imagine It quite impossible that there
should be revolution in England, and an entire
boultversement of our ancient constitution. ■
This optimist Indifference" Is tho source of our
main peril., All is right that Is done in England,
preach the Times and Telegraph-, and the happy,
easy, indolent creed is accepted by the comfort
able folk who have good incomes-and a balance
at their bankers’- Bnt for all that, the crucial
critical time is coming; the maelstrom of
destructiveness has already sucked ipto its waters
William Ewart Gladstone, once Oxford’s pride,
once Torlest of Tories. And It is moreover
significant that among Gladstone’s most trusted
followers Is aman who beare the great name of
Coleridge, the name of the Plato of England.
When such things occur, men must be very blind
, indeed if they cannot perceive that we are on the
verge of a great conflict—too probably of an ab
solute revolution.. Were her Majesty to abdicate,'
the struggle would instantly begin. - ;
A frightful mishap, accompanied 'by the most
tragic circumstances, spread terror on Sunday
morning last through the district of St. Jacques.
The Zoological Garden has. for a long time been
In possession of two magnificent Bengal tigers,
one of which was, to be forwarded to London.
T.o avoid accident, the animal was placed In a
wagon secured with strong Iron bars. The
greatest precaution was therefore taken to avoid
a catastrophe. At 3.30 in themorning the railway
servants perceived an enormous.animal clearing
atkbound the wall which separates the Zoo
logical gardens from. the railway Station. The
tiger had, in fact, escaped, having bent and bro
ken two of the iron bars of his cage. The first
object of his firry was the cart-horse of a night
man, which, happened to be pasting. The tiger
tionndfe'd on the unfortunate hotse, biting him in
the flank, and tearing the straps which attached
him the Cart The driver, who at first sought
safety on the horse’s back, hid himself under the
cart, but not before receiving a wound in the
leg from the tiger’s paw. Meantime the horse
mad with terror and pain, galloped furiously
towards the market of St. Jacques, pur
sued by the tiger. Hero another de
plorable event occnrred. A gardener, who was
passing the street, attracted the fury of the’bea9t.
The tiger sprang at him, tearing his breast, legs,
and neck in a fearful manner. Having finished
his victim the animal dragged the body some
distance; he then abandoned It and rushed Into
Bt. Anne’s court, where his presence caused In
describable terror. M. Vekemans, the director
of the Zoological Garden, having been informed
of the escape, proceeded with his staff in pursuit,
and came up with the animal at the,corner of St.
Jacques’ street,near the house Verstrepen.A night
watchman and three or fonr other persons took
refuge'in a small shop opposite this house. The
tiger spied them and stood for a moment as
though he intended to rush at them through the
window. He pursued his course,, however,
through the market. M. Vekemans with his as
sistants, after the animal got into St; Anne’s
court, barricaded the entrance and placed a trap
in it with a view of taking him alive. They then
got into the houses of the court in order to
frighten him into this trap. The tigerlay couched
against the door of the atelier ot M. De Braekc
lcer, the sculptor, but perceiving one of the men
in pursuit on the roof of a house, he leaped on
the roof ol a lower house, and assumed a most
menacing position. M.. Vekemans, De Braeke
leer, Werbronk and Verhovon were armed with
guns.- The tiger having perceived them de
scended from the roof, evidently bent on making
an attack, and when about four metres off ho
couched to make his spring. The order to fire
was given; and three guns were discharged in
succession. The first shot appeared to have
missed, the second struck the animal, the third
inflicted a mortal wound. He tottered. back to
the entrance of the coart, where M. do Braeke

An inquest was held by Coroner Keenan, yes
terday morning over the remains of George W.
Be!ding, a prisoner at the county jail in Ludlow
street, who committed suicide there by "cutting
hls throatwith a razor. It appears that Mr. Bela
■ lng was formerly a member of the banking firm
ot fielding, Keiin & X’o. (1 of No, 80 Lombard
street, London, England, which firm failed some
time ago, with liabilities'greatly exceeding the
aesets of the firm. On the 10th instant Mr. Bold
ing arrived in this city {Torn England by way of
Havana. No sooner had he arrived than he was
arrested on a civil process, on complaint q r >
Messrs. P. A.. Ames & Co., and Henry Morn ton,
of Boston, Massachusetts, - and -.required to give
: bail in the sum of .834,000 for his appearance. In
default of bail,Mr. fielding committed to the
• county jail for Safe keeping. He was' treated
very kindly by Mr. John M. Traey, the warden of
the prison, but appeared very much depressed in
spirits, snd felt mnch grieved' and .humi
liated in consequence of his arrest
and imprisonment. He stated that he had
been financially ruined while in England by, the
duplicity of his'partner, and he was arrested and
imprisoned on a demand which ho fonnd him
self entirely unable to liquidate. In a conversa
tion with Mr. Tracy soon after be was received at
the jail he stated that while en ro\ite from Ha
vana to this city he seriously contemplated com
mitting suicide by jumping, overboard,' Mr;
Tracy dissuaded him Irom any such attompt,and
nothing farther Was thought of tho' matter' until
about 5 o’clock yesterday morning, when John
:Lowey, the night watchman in the prison,; dis
covered Mr. fielding lying on the floor of
the bath-room sui rounded by a pool of blood,
apparently quite' dead. A razor covered vritii
blood was found on the floor by his, side, and on
examination life was fonnd to bo extinct Dr.
Joseph;W. Howe made a post mortem examlna-,
tion of the - remains and discovered that both
carotid: arteries had been severed and death had
resulted from hemorrhage. A verdict of suicide
while temporarily insane was rendered. Deceased

Yesterday morning, at half-post eight o’clock,
a man about; thirty years 'of age, apparently a
German, ascended the front step's of Father
Quinn’s residence, No. 16 Barclay street, and
pushing open the outer-door, .which was, unfas
tened, sat down against the . inside door,. and
placing.the muzzle of a four barrelled Sharp’s
pistol to his forehead, discharged one of the
chambers, tho ball passing clear through the
brain, out at the back of the head, and striking
against the wall, from which it rebounded, and
fell on the floor. The report of the pistol was
heard by Father Quinn and'the servants in the
house, who came out and found the man
leaning against the wall, and qnico dead. The
blood was oozing from, the wound in the fore
head and the pistol wbb lying beside deceased.
Officers GlbboDß and McConnell, of the Third
precinct, were called, and conveyed the remains
tothe Chambers street police station, where
.Coroner Keenan subsequently held on inquest.
A verdict in accordance with the foregoing facts
was rendered by the jury. Deceased was five
feet six inches in height, dressed in black frock
coat and pants, brown ribbed cloth vestfhehad
brown hair, goatee and mustache. In his pos
session was found an account book in which
was the name of “John Taylor in account with
J. Morrison & Co." On tho last leaf were .the
names of “Leonard Symms, No. 12 Bridge street.

The Rev. Mr. Quinn, paßtor of St. Peter’s
chnrch, made, before the sermon at the high
maBS, allusion to tho tragedy in the following
terms: “X think,” he said, “it is proper for me
to mention an nnfortnnate occurrence which
took plado this morning at the entrance of our
bouse. This morning at half-past eight an un
known man took away his life by hiß own hand,
in the hall, between the outer and Inner doors. I
saw him in less than two minutes after the reuort
of the pistol was heard, and then life was ex
tinct. The ball passed through his head and
made a deep mart on the Wall. From a raem
crandum found on his person, it appeared the
oct was premeditated. There is no reason to
suppose that he intended, to injure others. I
mention all I know regarding tho norrid act, that
you may haTe a correct statement of it."
General Gram’s Missls.ippi Order—Ex
plonatory Letter from uenorolßaw*
Headquarters Army op the United States, 1
Washington, May 6, 1868.— Sir-. Ydnr letter re
lating to the order of Gen. Grant, dated Oxford,
Miss., Dec. 17,1862, expelling Jews, as a class,
from his department, is before me. You are
doubtless aware that Gen. Grant has never, either
by himself or through the aid of friends, attempted
to defend any military order which the emer
gencies of the service seemed at the time to re
quire. However, as my name is attached to it
us Assistant Adjutant-General, it may not
be improper to state that at and previous
to its date, onr military affairs, were in a most
critical condition, and important movements
were transpiring. General, Sherman was col
lecting forces at Memphis and Helena. General
Grant was moving steadily against Pemberton,at
Grenada, keeping np appearances of immediate
attack, to divert his uttention from Sherman,and
in co-operation with Grant, Dodge was moving
sonth from Corinth. The success of Grant's
plans depended in keeping the enemy in Igno
rance of his real purpose, namely, the surprise
and capture of Vicksburg by Sherman,and it was
therefore of the utmost importance that every
avenue of information to the enemy should be
1 closed. .
The most stringent orders had previously been
published, forbidding peraons going or coming
through our lines, Umiting traders to certain
' boundaries, and prohibiting tho passage of com
South, or the payment of it for Southern pro
ducts. Persistent violations of those orders by
persons principally of the Jewish race were
-the subjects of constant reports bv many
-of General Grant’s subordinates, some of whom
had even Issued orders expelling them, frour
the lines, bnt which General Grant had promptly
revoked ’ Reports of the same character were
also received from other sources
At length, on the evening of December 17,1862
(tho date of the order), tho mail brought from
Washington a large numbor of complaints, offi
cially retorred to nim by tho General-in_ Chief of
the army, against this class of persons, for viola
tions of the above mentioned orders. The General
felt on reading them, that some immediate action
was demanded of him. He realized to its full ex
tent the critical condition of military affairs, and
judged, whether wisely or unwisely, that to moot
tho exigency action must be immediate, thorough,
and in a form not to be evaded. It was written,
and telegraphed to his subordinates, without re
vision, leaving all persons not justly amenable to;
its terms to bo relieved on their individual appll- •
cation. . ~,
The Idea that it was issued on account of the
religion of the Jews cannot be seriously enter
tatacci by aby.otie who knows the General s stead
fast adhereheb to tho principles of American lib
erty and religious toleration. - . ' . ::
