last week there have been almost daily visits of
the police at the neirepaper °Oleos .or,the post
of lece,and seizures and confiscations on all sides-
The pollee authorities eomethites proceed in their
inquisitorial • visitations , with - ts.' crafty
malice and cunning which are quite
worthy of record. For Instance, 'When the eat
tor of a paper thinks he is publishing something
whichjney'iead st - toltititrof 3b - kwitiof that
day, ho sometimes in the first place prints off •
enly'five hundred or. a thousand copies, and , then
waits to See the effect produced by the depOsit
of a imintier of the journal which he Is every day
bound by law to make at the'efflee of thecrown,
lawyers, before issuing, to the 'public. , OUcourse
it is the duty of the authorities to prohibit the
publication and make the seizure immediately if
they findlhat the number of the journal-which
has been deposited with them contains
illegal matter. But, pas at bete, say these crafty
and zealous tunctionsitice. We know a trick
worth two of that, say , they; there is no occasion
to be in a hurry; we shall bring oar bits down all
the morn surely for waiting a bit! Eio they do
"wale"until the unhappy editor and his printer,
thinking that all is right, that the "proof' nem
, bet has been approved," and that there-will be
no seizure that day, throw Off their whole issue
of so many thousands. But "bide a wee," as the
Scotehmen Boa. The imperial police is un
common "canny," and is just "waiting"
_ at, thaepoinfloexemare their_game mona_surely-
Down they come at once upon the unhappy
newspaper, both at its own office and even at
the peniVellices to which. it has been forwarded
for distribution, and confiscate the whole issue ;
at the same time that a prosecution, involving
certain. fines and- imprisonment, brings all the
parties implicated before the famous • llixtisme
Chambre of Correctional PoPee, which, in such a
ease, has serer been knevna- to tie: quit. This
• dodge" has recently been practiced over and
over again ;and I have just alietched the proceeding
to show you what "liberty , of the press" really con
sists of in France, and how the Government can
"worry to death" editors and journals thit per
sist In oinking themselves ''`dhsitgr , eettble,". _ _
The particular matter in question at the pres
ent moment arose from seine democratic, mani
festations exhibited et.the,tombs of General Ca
vaignac and Deputy Bandit' (killed on the barri
cades the ad or Decenaber;'l6l)---on the foal-du
horto, 2d of November last, when all the people
go to the churchyards. There was a sort of rendez
yeas at Bandin'ts . tomb. and scent
speeches were made and verses recited about"mar
tyrs to liberty," "tyrants,'' fee. Police in plain
doilies are always set to watch `suspected"
tombs, and take down
_what Is said against ,'
parties who otter it. But as th ere was no '
knee nor breach of the. peace committed, no
arrests were made, and the matter was almost
forgotten,when the journal,theßereil, proposed a
subscription for a suitable monument over Ban
din's tomb, and began, with other joarnale, to
publish lists of subscribers, who came in pretty
last. The Government took the alarm, seized all
the journals which published lists, and began
prosecution against them under the famous law
called the law of "manoeuvres," passed at the
time of the Orsini plot. The law does not
alit utpt to define what " manoeuvres " mean ; so
that, in point of fact, under it, anybody may be
proiecuted for anything that the Government
chooses._ Eight persons, including the editors or
proprietors of four Democratic newspapers, have
just been tried and sentenced. of course, to hitt
prisonments of from six to one month and fines of
1.,00 and 2,000 francs, with deprivation of civil and
political rights, tt.c. The inameuvrea "in this
case were the manifestations made at liandin's
tomb, followed by the subscriptions to
his monument. As regards the latter, M
Berryer, the legitimist orator, has writ
ten and published a letter saying that
as on the 3d December, 1851, Louis Napoleon
was himself "deposed and put horl la /vi" by a
decree of the National Assembly, which Baudie
was only - doing his best "legally" to support when
killed on the barricades—therefore he, M. Berryer,
the first lawyer perhaps In France, should sub
-cribe to his monument. This example has beer.
followed by M. Prevost-Parade!, of the Debuts,
by M. Odilon Barrot, by M. Edgar Quinet, and
many other influential Liberia: - Even persons
who do not approve either of the demonstration's'
at the tomb or the subsequent subscriptions,blame
the Government for exasperating public,opinion
by these prosecutions, which have spread rumors
and alarms all over the country. The Gorda;
another "unpleasant" paper„ taking advantage
of this state of public feeling, published a ere
mentious ''Sensational" two days ago, setting
forth that the Government had discovered a ter
rible and widespread "plot" for upsetting the
Empire, and that in consequence it had resolved
to repeal all the "liberal" measures which had
recently been granted. The article produced a
great sensation, and may, for aught I know,
have been telegraphed across the Atlantic. Of
course there was not a word of truth in it,
and the" Government has now brought
another prosecution against the Gaulois for
disseminating false news. Thus the excite
ment is kept up and not in Paris only, but all
over the country; for the provincial papers also
publish Battdin subscription lists, and every
where there are seizures and prosecutions going
on. You cannot take up a newspaper without
reading half a dozen of them. All this is a bad
preparation for the elections of next year; and
the government goes blundering on from bad to
worse, while "the Court" is dancing at COM
plilne and keeping the "nte of Bt. Eugenie," as
though -we had gone back to the Middle Ages.
--all my prognostications of bast week have
been, unhappily, fulfilled, and I have to chronicle
the deaths of three individuals, all well known
and remarkable in their" way—Rossini, Baron
James de Rothschild and Is. Havin ,deputy and
political director of the Siecle. It is certainly!.a
singular coinbidence that three persons so emi
nent in the musical, financial and political world
should have all disappeared from among us so
simultaneouely. There were not, I think, twen
ty-four hours , between dick deaths. Poor Ros

'allure of the Rout Cents Railway.
The Florence correspondent of the London
Times sas e: I regret to inform you that the Mont
Cents Railway Company has come to considera
ble grief, and that the communications between
France and Italy are in a very disturbed and un
certain state. Singe the 25th of October there
bad been constant great delays, and the trains
bad arrived in Turin, as ;I - think 1 thenee wrote
to you, at all hours of the morning,. Wednes
day, the 4th of November, was the
only day on which the time was
nearly kept- Since the 6th the_ trains have
ceased to run. We hear of one having been
stuck for eight or nine hours in the snow, frozen
to its place. In short, the concern seems to have
completely broken down, the disaster being ap
parently mainly due to want of sufficient loco
motive power, but accelerated by the unusually
early laid very heavy fall of snow. - The mails
are taken across the mountain in a
horse carriage, and travelers seek
other routes. One trainfull, which had
started from Susa, was glad to get
brick, after severatfreezing hours passed a short
way up the Mountain, and to take ship at Genoa'
for 31arseilles. I know not how far the snow will
nave closed the other passes (the Splugen was
still very., practicable about ten days - ago,) beetth6.

is evident that they must first have a better sup

Danger to the sra.aquality or Spain.
[Madrid Nov. 12 Correopondenr-e of the London Morn.
ing Herald
Every day which elapses before the final settle
ment of the great question of the future form of
government renders their settlement more diffi
cult. Parties are everywhere being formed, the
me between those parties becomes more defined,
and the individuals composing them become
more and more strongly wedded to their own
Why should not government, three weeks
since, have made an effort to settle the question
promptly and decidedly ? The example of Italy,
m Venetia, was before her. Why could she not
have imitated it? There in every parish a ballot
box was kept open, and the question asked of
each man was"Do you vote forVietor Emmanuel,
or no ?" There was no complication, no
difficulty, no writing of names upon paper,
no formalities of registers of baptism or
authorities to vote. Each man who so
chose simply walked in, gave his name to the
crutincers at the table, and voted yes or no.
Why could not the Spanish government at once
have adopted a similar simple method? Why not
order ballot, boxes to be opened in every parish
in Spain upon a certain day, and let every male - '
person over twenty-one walk in and deposit
his vote for a Republic Or for a Monarchy. The
affair might not be as formal, might not be
:o theoretically perfect, might be open to
-.ome abuses: but what are these small drawbacks
ro the great question that Spain is to be kept in
a state of uncertainty and confusion for another
'our or five months? Once a republic or a mon
archy decided upon by the acclamation of Spain,
all the excitement would cease- at once. The
Ministry would only have to carry oat the popu
lar will, as they have done in the case of the
various points .acclaimed by the ' Cadiz pro
:van:tine, They; could proceed nnimpeadel and
unembarrassed in their path of making necessary
reforms, and 'when the time came they could
either, should, a repnblie be fixed upon,..summon
a Cortes to decide upon the constitution of that
republic, or in the event of a monarchy having
been selected, could produce the sovereign whom,
they, as acting for the nation, had decided upon.
From the general tone of feeling here and in the
provinces, I feel convinced that long ere the
time comes for the meeting of the Cortes Con
stituen tes they will have cause , bitterly to regret
that they did not pursue some such course as

We have heard of Texas and arkansas jurors
deciding the life of .a man by playing a game of
"old sledge," but the following statement, made
to Governor Wells, of the "majority rule" in the
jury room, is-about the first instance approach
ing the "jack-flopping" process of rendering a
verdict that has come to light in Virginia:
William Armistead, of Portsmouth, Va., was
convicted the November, 11868, term of
the Hustings Court, of unlawful shooting, and
sentenced to the jail for six months. Pardon
was applied for by ten of the jurors by whom he
was tried, and by citizens, on the ground ~that
there were mitigating circumstances, and of his
former good ehariteter. It appears by the sworn
statement of one of the jurors, that the cause
was given to the jury on the 14th of the month;
that they were unable to agree, and remained in
the jury -room until theltitb, the jury, then stand
ing eight for unconditional acquittal, two for
conviction and two for compromise—they being
ready to vote whichever way might secure a ver
The Jurors agreed to draw lots. - Twelve bal
lots were then placed in a hat, marked "guilty,"
with twelve blank ballots, making in all twenty
four. The hat was then shaken and twelve bal
lots drawn out. and it was agreed that the ver
dict should be as the ballots remaining in the hat
Indicated. On counting , the hallots it was found
that seven had written upon them "guilty" and
five wore blank. The prisoner was thereupon,
in pursuance of the agreement found guilty.
Under such cif ctmstances the prisoner cannot be
said to have had a trial bvjury.- Pardon granted.

and low comedy, and melodrama, so judiciously
intermingled that the admirers of any one branch
of dramatic art would not have to wait long at
any time before their turn come. Last week she
gave sensation,•thie . week high comedy, and melo
drama is preparing for the early future. To in
telligent play-goers the comedy seasons are the
most attractive, and if the experience of the last
few months proves anything, they are about the
most profitable to the theatre.
But the comedy.last night did not crowd the
house; partly because there were powerful attntc
done eleewhere.rpartly because the play, The
Way to Keep Him, is not as popular as several
other dramas of its class. It is one of those old
fashioned comedies which have furnished later
dramatists with. Ideas and situations for a multi
tude of inferior plays; and ae a literary work it is
vastly better than the productions of most patch
work playwrights of this day. Its plot is In
genious, the language is elegant, and the situa
tions are very effective. Its faults arc that it Is
too verhose; its sittgle climax is placed at the end
oldie anti act. and Some patience le required to
await its attainment; and it has the very common
lault in plays of its age and class, of being
a little too broad for nineteenth
country ideas of delleag. — We can somewhat ex
tenuatethis latter defect in view of the fact that
it was written at a time when licence of lan
guage was the fashion, even in society, and thattt presents a correct acture of the morality of its
day. The looseness of a century old comedy
does not excuse the bawdry of a drama written
yesterday, any more than the free speech of
Shakespeare affords a satisfactory precedent for
the cheap filth of Offenbach's burlesque writers.
If the great literary .merit of the oue does not
atone for the grossness, the custom of the time
does. The small Sensationalists of this day can
not plead excellence of workmanship, or licence
et fashion for their indecencies.
The comedy last night was, of course, admira
bly performed. It is Mrs. Drew's fortune to have
in her theatre. one of the very beet stock cm:opal:l
-ies ever collected upon the stage. From hor very
accomplished self, down to the overealved young
gentleman Who- dock 'the business of footman,
everybody gives an Intelligent, able and com
pletely satisfactory representation of their respec
tive characters.;• 'lt is hardly fair to make any
distinction where all were so good, but perhaps
Mts. Maeder,;Mr. Mackay, and Mr. Everly deserve
especial commendation for the very superior
manner in which they fulfilled the require
ments of their roles last evening. Mr. Barton
Hill and Miss Pried . were hardly less pleasing,
the latter, particularly, having displayed rather
more rim than is, customary with her. Mrs.
Drew's character, was for from being the most
prominent in the drama,- but she played as well
as usual, and Mrs. Creese, in a minor part—all
too small for so good an actress—vas very
charming. This evening the comedy John Rua
will be given, and on ' Thursday Mr. Craig will
appear for the first time in the Heir at LOW as
"Dr. Pauglose," a character that must be well
played to be.eatiefactory. while the person:4lone
of Mr. Warren and other good artists are fresh in
the public mind.
—The circus company at Y the ',Chestnut street
theatre gave a first perform:ince last evening, to
an immense audience. It is only fair to say that
the entertainment was very exceliont,_ and that
the promise 61 the manager, that he.would give a
model circus performance, was fulfilled in the
most satisfactory manner: Without attempting
to specify the woridettalithirigs accoinplished by
each member ,of, the company„wo may mention
the equestrian .feats of Mr. James,Robinson, for
their gracefulness Andtagility, the acrobatic per-
