impeding the growth and greatness of Philadelphia by

gre® impassable barrier' to its onward march-
Looking norrir and west especially, we see, is immerse
proportions, the evil results of the want of foresight which
him characterized the last generation. A few instances
will suffice for oar purpose. It was not enough that our
constituted authorities should shut out half a mite of
valuable river ft - out on the Schuylkill from public use by
the residents on the west aide of that river by locating
that great unmitigdted nuisance, rag Motorola!, with
its lee acres of idle farm laud on the opposite shore; but
private rpeculetion in PAO was allowed to turn the ad

placing two great b.rriers to the direct outlet of
the city in that direction and preventing immensely

time to come with the convenience of the public, and, of
consul -mice with the general interests of our citizens.
The mid_chief done cannot bo remedied; there they are
and there they must remain. But we can prevent any
more such short-Bighted folly, upon ground/ of public pol

growth of our city, let it at once be understood that gen

Correspondence of the Philadelphia Evening Bulletin-1
PAnis, Friday, Oct. 23, 1868.—1 made special
allusion, at the time the incident occurred, to the
prompt and friendly action of the United States
Minister in Spain, who was the first to step
forward and recognize, in his diplomatic and
official capacity, the movement by which the
Spanish people bad vindicated their national
sovereignty. You will see by the manifesto pub
lished by the Provisional Government at Madrid.
and addressed to its diplomatic agents throughout
the world, that this generous policy of America
has not been lost sight of or forgotten.
After vindicating, in the eyes of the world, the
late Revolution, on political,social,moral and na
tional grounds, with considerable force and effect
—the manifesto expresses a natural desire on the
part of the Provisional government, to find itself
sustained by the moral support of the other gov
ernments of Europe. And then it adds as fol
ows : But (it Bays) if this support should be de
nied ns—if these governments should be slow to
imitate the "noble example set them by that na
tion so remarkable for its ardent veneration of the
principle of the emancipation and liberty of the
human race—more remarkable, indeed, for that
sentiment than even for its own power and gran
deur"— if this should be some will still not allow
ounseives to be diseO_Uraged. in our enterprise-
Bis 'dal qui cao dad—says the proverb. Had
American action been less prompt, the Spanish
Provisional Government would have been unable
to pen the above grateful acknowledgment of a
service timely rendered, or to have held up the
example of the United States as a lesson at once
and model to Europe. On the other hand, a
generous policy is rarely lost to those who prac
tice it, and American influence in Europe will bo
all the stronger for the above example, " The
United States," says , the Debuts commenting on
the act in question, "have not made Spain wait
for the expression of their encouragement and
sympathy. We presume the powers of Europe
have had some reason for allowing America thus
to get the start of them. But since they have
allowed it, they must not grumble at the ever
increasing influence which begins to be exercised
over Europe by the American people and gov
ernment. The latter act in the light way to in
crease that influence; it is not they who try to
thwart other people in their legitimate aspirations;
It is not they who frown when a monarchy
crumbled away beneath the weight of its own
faults and follies; nor do they give' themselves
much conoern about what becomes of the 'Lilo
thentirrierids-everywhere; and since it is at once
able and profitable, the wisest course would be to
imitate it as speedily as possible."
The above homage paid, by so able and serious
a journal as the Debats to American example
shows at onie the-value of the support which has
been afforded to Spain in a great crisis of her
fortunes, and the estimation in which that sup
port is held by the other nations of Europe.
And this reference to. American action at Ma
drid induces me to mention thl course of conduct
adopted by an American Minister in another and
an adjacent Capital, and which I cannot doubt
will have been equally approved by his country
men and govefntnent at home. It was with great •
satisfaction that I learned, by letters from Ameri
can residents at Lisbqp, the action taken by Hon.
James E. Harvey, representing the United States
government at that Court, in face of, the atro
cious outrage perpetrated by Queen Isabella upon
her own sister and brother-in-law, the
Due and Duchesso de Montpensier, and the some
what shabby and pusillanimouS policy ' of - the

Here in France, pacific ideas are predomi
nant for the moment, aid were manifested the
other day by a rapid rise in public and alt
other securities. The talk is still of disarmament
and retrenchments. It is semi-officially announced
that the chambers are to be opened again before
Christmas, about the middle of next month; and
that financial measures and reduction of the bud
get of the Ministers of War and Marine will be
the first business laid before the House. There is
a talk also of completing the operation of the
conversion of the 4% per cents. The Emperor has
ordered a new map of Europe to be engraved,
showing the respective positions of France, as to
her frontiers, during three . marked epochs of her
history; and making it evident, according to the
imperial judgment, that the late changes beyond
the Rhine have by no means rendered the na
tional boundaries less secure than at former Po
ric d s.
The Pall Mall Gazette says:
When it gtas said a little while since that Mar
fort had gone to Brussels to demand satisfaction
of M. Henri Rochefort for certain unpleasant ob
servations on the conduct of the ;Spaniard's au
gust mistress, we had little expectation that such
an encounter as that gentleman proposed would
come off. But according to rumor in Paris the
duel has been actually fought, and M. Rochefort
ass been wounded. This brings back the ques
don which must have occurred to many people
when M. MarforPs intention was first rumored—
Was M_ Rochefort obliged to go out with such a
man? We da not pretend to
learned in the
Code of Honor, but is there not, was there not,
some provision in it, excluding from its priv
leges men who had forfeited_the...consideration
due to a gentleman? Nossoall the world may be
in a conspiracy against M. Marfori for anything
we know to the contrary; but what all the world
says of him is so much to his discredit that sup.
posing it to be true, he has forfeited all right to
call himself a gentleman. What is said of a
woman who becomes a "favorite?" What ought
to be said of a man who becomes a "favorite?"
To us it seems that M. Marfori is either infa
mously wronged, or he is a person disqualified
from appealing to any code or honor whatsoever.
One of the most significant and disgraceful stories
of the time is that which describes the Queen of
Spain, the Fang her husband, and M. Marfori,
belakint , themselves-all in one-coach together
from the scene of their glory in Spain. Perhaps
that story is not true either; but if true it is one
of the prettiest texts for a sermon at present be
fore the world.
A Madrid correspondent writes:
The Minister of Justice at Madrid yesterday
issued a decree formally ordering the • immediate
suppression of all monasteries, convents; chapels,
congregations and other religious establishments
of both sexes founded since the 29th of July,
1837, and the transfer of all their property, move
able end immoveable, to the State. The convents
established before 1837 are to be reduced in num
ber by one-half, and those left are forbidden
henceforward to receive novices. The monks

The Forni.of Government.
Marshal Serrano, Admiral Topete, and Senor
Olozaga, on their return from Sargossa to Ma
drid, were entertained at.a breakfast at Guadala
jam, and each made a speech in reply to toasts
that were drunk. Senor Olozaga said that he
and his friends were of opinion that a monarchy
was a necessity for Spain, as the people were
not prepared by education for a republic. Ad
miral Topete said he was of the same opinion as
Senor Olozaga, but promised to support a re
public if established by, the Cortes. Senor
-Moras, a Demoeratr -- who ------ wirs present,
spoke in favor of a republic, but said that
the Democratic party would support and
respect a montachteal Government if
such were voted by the nation. Marshal Serrano
also said that the Provisional Government would
respect the national wishes. At a democratic
meeting, held at Madrid on Sunday, a resolution
was adopted, after a very animated discussion,
that a federal republic was the only ford •of go
vernment in consonance with democratic princl- -
plea. It was also resolved to propose to the Go
yerninciAt to (WAR WM pli ppaniatda tIVCRIY
Montpensiens, I learn, were actually kept a fort
night in the Tagus, on board the Spanish ship-of
war which brought them there, "for fear of
French displeasure," and efforts were oven made
to prevent them from disembarking at. all. It
was rumored at one time that Napoleon had
written to demand their withdrawal, and though
the act was denied "officially," it was credited
"privately." Now Mr. Harvey, I heir, did all Ih
his power to give the Montpeneiera a manly
countenance, at a moment when all his
diplomatic colleagues, even the British
minister, it appears, not excepted, rather showed
them the cold shoulder,for fear of giving umbrage
to the Court. Determined that a family who had'
displayed so friendly a feeling towards America
during the war should not be turned out uncere
moniously, Mr. Harvey, with his usual energetic
decision of diameter, arranged With the com
mander of an American ship-of-war to offer them
a passage in case of need. I understand the
Duke and Duchess were most , grateful for this
considerate act of politeness, and also greatly
strengthened by it in their awkward position.
The Ducheee is, I hear, an excellent, good and
pleasing woman, an exemplary mother and
model of domestic life; and, in fact, in all things
the very antipodes of Messaline Isabel. To have
rendered a service to such a person so treateikwill
be recognized, I feel sure, as an act both chival
rous and graciously the American people.
The Marshal Serrano has, in his turn, written a
letter to the Paris journal s the Gaulois, in which,
like Prim, and without prejudice to the will of
the Spanish people, he declares himself In favor
of a constitutional monarchy as the only form of
Government fit for Spain; or rather, as he might
have said, but d6es not, though he
probably thinks it, the only form of free
Government for which Spain is fit. M. Olozaga
even has made the same declaration, staunch re
publican though he be,but with a certain reserve
don to that effect. Constitutional monarchy, he
said the other day in his speech at Guadalaxara,
was a suitable transitory regime to lead a nation
from an absolute monarchy to a republic. But
Spain, he added, "was not yet fit for the last
mentioned form of political existence; she was
not yet sufficiently enlightened, sufficiently ad
vanced, to realize that beau ideal, which ought to
be the first object of modern society." You will
see how absolutely this judgment of one of the
most highly esteemed citizens of Spain, as well
as one of her most liberal statesmen, , squares
both with my own opinion on the point and also
with those which I recently quoted to you of
American residents on the spot.
You will see that besides the suppression of
the Jesuits, and many other religions corpora
tions, the Provisional Government has followed
the example of France in exacting the diasoin_
don of the powerful body known as the Society
of St. Vincent de Paul. In many respects the
obligation felt to do this is to be regretted, for
the charitable work of the Society was no doubt
beneficent. But its vast funds and organization
were also often, no doubt, misapplied to the
furtherance of other ambitions ecclesiastical de
signs, dangerous at once to the liberties both of
the State and the conscience.

The London correspondent of the New York
TriMuzc says—
The Liverpool papers record from day to day
the progress of the intimacy between Mr. Reverdy
Johnson and Mr. Laird. On the day following
the dinner, this affectionate couple embarked
together on board a steam-yacht for a short
cruise. Their yacht, like the Alabama when she
left Liverpool, had no guns on deck. They pro.
sently landed at Birkenhead, and Mr. Johnson,
escorted by Mr. Laird, visited the ship-yards of
the latter. Here, no doubt, Mr. Johnson was
shown.the historical spot where the keel of the
Alabama-was laid, the ways over which she glided
into the water upon her merry mission, and the
buoy in the river from which she finally slipped
away. It is not stated whether Capt. Bullock of
the Confederate Navy, who superintended her
building, was present to explain to Mr. Johnson
the qualities which enabled her to outstrip in
speea both the merchant vessels who were her
victims and the vessels of war which churlishly
sought to interrupt her career. Captain
Semmes, it is only too certain, wait
absent, but it is believed a despatch has
been sent to his home in Memp his, re
questing his immediate return. No future ban
quet to Mr. Reverdy Johnson will be deemed
complete without his presence. Even the mirth
fulness of the pending negotiations between
Lord Stanley and Mr. Johnson lacks the zest of
his jovial humor. It is thought he will be able
to testify in respect to the value of the shies to be
burned, so as to mince the extravagant claims
for damages presented by their owners; especially
by sundry widows and orphans, whose fortune
bad been foolishly invested in some of the yes
sels which fell in Capt. Semmes's way.

The New York Evening Post of last. evening
The election must show the Southern Demo
cratic leaders that the American people will not
have Congress coerced; will not have the region
struction measures overthrown; will not have our
bonds dishonored; will not approve of or bear
with the invasions of the sacred right of free
speech, or the atrocious intolerance which has
been openly fuenicated and zealously practiced
by the Southern Democratic leaders for months
past. IL ought to teach these badmen prudence.
They have exhausted the patience of the people;
they have insulted the laws, and defied right and
justice. Let them now be quiet; else exemplary
punishment will overtake them.
We trust these Southern disorganizers will
now learn wisdom, and submit to what is inevi
table. Let us have peace; let us have liberty; let
us have free discussion; let us have tolerance.

Up after this fashion :
"No, not beaten, Democrats! We have only
not won! We have 'moved upon the enemy's
works, but have failed to carry them. But we
are not routed, thank God ! Our lines are un
broken, our spirit unsubdued, our courage as
high as ever ! We are still a great army, of near
ly three millions of men, with nothing lost in the
present campaign, auft the same objects to con
tend for that we have' just failed to win.
"The fight goes on ! It must go on ! We can
not give it up ! This broad continent, baptized
lu the blood of the martyrs who made us free,
and which was thereby not only dedicated as an
inheritance of freedom to their posterity, but left
as a free-will offering to all others of their own
high, leading, governing race, of whatever na
tionality, who should become incorporated into
the citizenship of the Republic, cannot be sur
rendered to despotic military rule,i and made the
home of a mongrelized, debased, low-btowed
race of political slaves!
"No. never! By the Heavens above us, and the
blood-soaked, sacred soil beneath our feet, this
shall never be! We are still men ! We come of
a stock which spurns the chain and defies the
tyrant !"
The National Intelligencer is gloomy. It ob
One of the most extraordinary political con
tests ever witnessed has just terminated. It has
ended, as we have for some time apprehended, in
the success of the Radical party. This party have
already secured a majority of over two-thirds in
tie United States Senate, and they have also a
decided majority in the next House of Representa
tives. Whether they will elect two-thirds of the
latter body is, we believe, contingent upon elec
tions yet to be held; but any deficiency occasioned
by a popular vote will be made good by the ma
chinery of the House Committee on Elections,
and by expelling Democrats whose majorities are
small, or because they represent Southern consti
tuencies. The history of the past affords ample
guarantee that these outrages will be practiced,
and a not lees emphatic assurance that they may
be practiced with comparative impunity.

bine() the close of the war has been a steady and
strong band to curb and keep in cheek the
Hareptona, Formats, Wins, and other leaders of
the rebellion—the men who ought forever to for
feit all right of participating in tho National and
State GOvernments. Bo long as they are permit
ted to continue to "fire tho Southern heart,". there
will be no peace and mo prosperity. The elec
tion of General Grant is an emphatic proclama
tion to these men that they. must abandon their
dons to sow dissolution and discord, and that
the reconstruction of these States must progress
without further hindrance or interference.
The Newark Advertiser sorrows for Jersey, but
rejoices over the national result:
We thank God that the Republicans of Now
Jersey have taken no secondary position. In the
hard tight forced upon them, they have stood up
boldly for the right. Not one word do they re
tract. Their resolutions, their addresses, every
utterance they have made, ring clear and true.
All that by authority they have spoken, every
word in behalf of freedom and universal suffrage,
tands yet upon the record. If they are beaten,
it • is not because of the abandonment of their
priaciples. In the face of every difficulty; know
ne well how hard a struggle lay before them,
willing to be everything and to do everything for
he sacred cause, the Republicans of New Jersey
have met the issue; arrayed themselves with the
party elsewhere, and propose to win in any fu
!tire contest. In the still hard fight before them,
they propose to stay Where they are, the self
sacrificing opponents of all that favors the cause
of oligarchy, of slavery or rebellion. ,
The Baltimore Sun is sweetly conservative. It
r •marks:
The result, however much it may disappoint those
who had anticipated any other conclusion, and
however unsatisfactory it may be to all the op
ponents of the successful candidates for the Pres
idency and Vice Presidency, whether they expec
ted it or not, will,be acknowledged by them, as
wood citizens, to be decisive, and, as the declared
verdict of the people, be universally submitted
We haVe before observed that the more health
ful sentiment of the public mind in the direction
of conservatism was recognized In the nomina
tion of both General Grant and Mr. Seymour,
and if this shall continue to be deferred to, the
country has still reason to be hopeffil. The in
stincts and impaled+ of General Grant are be
lieved to be conservative and national, and if
these are permitted to shape and give tone to his
administration, there will be no reason to "de
spair of the republic."
The Harrisburg Patriot thinks we are in great
danger. It says:
Unlike all other political conflicts in this coun
try, this contest has decided nothing. The De
mocracy emerge from it eager to renew the battle
with Radicalism, in defence of the Constitution.
The military despotism established by Congress
has only gained strength by the elsrction of the
Radical candidate. The States are yet to be re
stored to the Union, and 'that work must be por
formed by the,Democratic party, the party of the
Union, if it be performed at all. With a reckless
faction of Radical politicians directing the legis
lation of the country, and with a raw and inex
perienced soldier in the chair of President, our
republican institutions were never so greatly im
perilled. The unceasing vigilance, courage and
patriotism of the Demotracy alone can preserve
American liberties.
The N. Y. Tribune of to-dav says :
One of the most gratifying aspects of our great
national triumph is the rebuke thereby adminis
tered to the base spirit which, while vaunting
itself conservative and opposed to disunion is
forever seeking to foment jealousy and ill-feeling
between the East and the West. Few meaner
exhibitions of this spirit have been made than
those of Horatio Seymour during his recent,
stumping tour, wherein he managed to swell the
majorities for Grant at every point where ho held
forth. To excite envy at the West of the more
ample banking capital of the East (as though
borrowers and debtors should be bankers Instead
of creditors and lenders) was among the most
characteristic displays or the arts of an office
seeking demagogue.
The vote of the people gives the proper rebuke
to this meanness. The magnificent majority of
Massachusetts is almost matched by that of 1 . 111-
11018 : lowa is as hearty for Grant as Vermont;
Pennsylvania and Indiana pull together as tbey
have almost always done ; and the gain of Con
necticut in the East is paralleled by that of Cali
fornia in the West. New England Is solid for
Grant; so is the region northwest of the Ohio.
Blessings on the East and the West, one and in
separable ! " What God bath joined, let not man
put asunder."
The N. Y. Times says :
The reconstruction measures will now have a
fair trial. If they work well and promote har
mony and prosperity in the Southern States, they
will enter into the fixed policy of those States
and become part of their tntdamental laws. if
not, they will be amended, repealed or replaced
by others which will answer the purpose better.
Those Southern States, which have resumed their
practical relations with the General Government,
have now complete control of their own affairs,
—as fully and in the same sense as the other
States within the Union. The people of the South
have no longer any motive for the disorder and
violence which prevailed before the election.
They can gain nothing, and they mit lose much,
by continuing it longer. Their alliance with the
Democratic party of the North can no longer be
of any service to them; the party is without pres
ent power or future hope.
—The Paris correspondent of the New York
il'orld writes as follows of the decline of Offen
bach's cheap popularity In the French capital:
- We have had this wetk—shall I say the last?—of
those extravaganzas which have made M. Offenbach's
name known throughout the musical world. I be
lieve it is generally admitted here the public are be
ginning to grow weary of this class of pieces. MK,
eilhnc and Halevy drew their book from a charm
ing piece by M. Proepes Merimee, played at the French
Comedy in 1850 (although published long before in the
Theatre de Clara Gaze!), where it met with indifferent
success for want of a little judicious pruning. It is
said the Gymnase will probably revive It
this winter. La Carosse becomes La Pe
riebole in the hands of Messrs. Mellhac
and Halevy. The scene Is laid in PCM. The Vice
roy, while prowling about the streets in quest of ad
ventures, stumbles upon a street songstress, La Peri
chole (Mlle.' Schneider.) She is very beautiful and
very poor. lie falls in love with her, and, to intro
duce her to his palace, mart les her to her lover. Each
is faithless to the other. The authors, during the two
acts, parody the corresponding scenes of 'La Fa
vorite.' The public did not applaud warmly, The
pieee which was, no 1 have said, a two-act piece, has
been cut with an unsparing hand since the first per
formasce, and little remains of the piece. Mlle.
Schneider showed herself a consummate artist in her
peculiar line, and saved the piece by the art with
which she played a drunken scene (since 'cut;' imag
