[Corretipondenee of
,the Plillaneinhia Evening Bulletin.]
Pants, Friday, May 21,1809.—The electionS,
the elections-7-nothing but the elections
Although. the nubile meetings are over, the
old candidates are doing 'their, best to keep
themselVes in remembrance; and every .day
some new addreAs is appeariag; while, as , an
ticipated, eandidals dela dernfire !ware, as they
are'ealled here, or,as we say; candidates of the
last moment,; are continually cropping !kip.
Sem*, Of these latter *are 'mere men of straw, or
entimsittatic ore eriers,. who have suddenly , per
suaded ••thonstelvets that they are • fitted
Ibr legislatetsi and statesmen. Their.addresises'
are often 01 absprd description, and
may be summed. up by saying that they pledge
themselves pretty nearly to the "abolition of
everything," if they, should have the honer of
1)04' elected by their fellow-citliens. Oettoi,
taxes, army, navy, conscription, budgets of
all kinds are promised to be swept away, and
a political millennium to be inaugurated, if
these regenerators of society could
only be. put into the place of the Emperor
and 31. Rouher, or even of Jules Fevre
and 31. Thiers. Of course these men, whose
names even it is not worth while to Mention,
have no chanee of success. But it amazes one
to see how vast an amount of political and so
cial ignorance exists amongst the population
even of such a city as Paris; and how crowds
stand around and greedily read,or more,often,
haVe read to them, these monstrous utopias,
and seem to swallow them down as realities.
There is hardly any theory too atTard to be
put forth and find faith amongst a people so
excitable, and at once so unpractical and ill
informed on political questions, as are the
French MasseS, even in the capital.
Here and there the Govermnent has been
encouraged by these extravagant demonstra
tions to lay aside its forced neutrality in Paris,
and to bring forward not exactly an "official
eandidate;". but a "Candidate of order," which
every oiii• knows to mean the !same thing.
Thus 31. DesnWre, the great bronie manufac
turer, patronized especially by the Court and
the noblesse, was persuadetLonly yesterday,to
psi tient bittirierli:i T i—tb eleeteral-ffiVl

"friends of erderto rally round,their banner
lions stop to all the wild and Subeersive
doctrines; and I .shouldn't wonder if he meets
coasiderable amount of support., „
litifthe lafilliatheginS`'OtiStindaY 'neitand
ends on 31orttlay,atalallantenlation on What
is waning will soon be swallowed up in the re
sult. That the ,niajority, for ,the government
%yin still be very large throughout the eountry,
cannot admit of a doubt. Hut I think its coni
plexion in the ,Chambers be very much
modified by the circumstances under whiCh it
has been elected; and the language it has been
compelled to hold, and the pledges it has
found it necessary to give, in Order to defeat
its opponents and secure its 'return. There is
also a fair chance of several able men, such
for instance as 31. Laboulaye, the author of
Po* en Ainerique, and others, being elected,
and adding weight, and strength, and influ
euce to the small but talented opposition.
Let me warn you, once for all, to put no
faith in exaggerated telegrams which may he
*eta over to America, respecting political dis
turbances in Paris or elsewhere. Nothing of
the slightest real importance of that nature has
either taken place here, or is likely to do so, '
or anywhere else. But the ministerial au
thorities are notoriously anxious to make the
most of the_ trifling incidents that have hap
pened, both to alarm people at home and to
justify the iMperial policy and system in the
eyes of foreign nations.
Nothing can demonstrate the absence of al
real ground of alarm here more than the suc
cess of the financial speculations ,which" are
being just now floated, and the eagerness with
which the public is throwing itself into them.
The official returns of the City Loan have
not yet been published, but I am enabled to
state that they will exceed even the extrava
gant expectations formed of them. The total
amount subscribed for, in return for the de
mand for two hundred and sixty millions, will
be found to be not less than between seven
thousand or eight thousand millions. The rage,
for purchasing these bonds has exceeded
ptecedent, and has invaded all ranks of the
population. I suppose there is scarcely a
family in France of whieh' some member has
not been doing a little gambling in the lottery
of the Prefect of the Seine. Something like
two hundred thousand money letters, with
remittances Mid applications for bonds, were
received/at the Hotel de Ville alone, besides
all the subscriptions paid into the hands of
bankers and regular agents, and the officers
appointed for the purpose. The apportion
ment is expected not to exceed more than if
per cent: on the amount , demanded, and even
before this has taken place the• bonds are sell
ing at a premium of 25 or 30f. previous to their
being issued. People have here,rtm Wild after
speculation and the hope or prizes, and have
ceased to care for moderate and regular invest.
ments. The fever will be kept up by quarterly
drawings, and the excitement of a lottery offer
ing such chances as 200,000 francs.
Amongst other securities which have been
benefited by the abundance of unemployed I
capital, and the feverish thirst forspeculation,
are those of the Isthmus of Suez Canal, which

to him by President Grant. ,
The London Dail News says that it is glad
to be able to conclude from the speech of Mr.
Motley that he has not come without Specific
instructions, and that it Ls satisfactory to find
that on the question of :the relations between
the United States' and England, President ,
Grant has a policy of conciliation and peace.
One clear gain likely to resultfroni Mr. Mot

of a difficult question from the region of nil

into that of a business statementand

will treat the pending subject honorably,while

for the 'present devote himself to the discharge
of the ordinary duties of his Office, and that in
that capacity he may consolidate that cordial
alliance which ought to exist between.the two
countries.. It will be a reproach to English
politicians andjournals if, for the sake: of pan
dering to popular prejudice, they threw diffi
culties in the way of the mission Of good will
and peace which Mr. Motley declares he
comes to curry out even to the end:
The London
_Times understands that no•tiew
domain' has beeni addressed to England. Mr.
Motley enters upon his_ duties without any
prospect of controversy, but at the same time
says that the EngliSh government should 'ex
amine any new proposals anti see if they pro
mise a just and equitable solution. If the neu
trality proclamation is made the subject of
grievance we are bound to listen to the argu
ments adduced, though it is improbable that
any good purpose would be served by raising
such discussion.'
The Pa// Mall Gazette,a.s usual,bas a snobbish
article on the subject, boasting that America
has backed down before British pluck, and
that under these circiumstances the arrival of
the new Minister is of • small importance, and
the best result they anticipate from Mr.
Motley's mission is that hiS duties will afford
him sufficient leisure to prosecute his histori

Grand Farewell Banquet to Glen. Dix--
Eloquent Speech of the Retiring Minis.
PARIS; June 1, 1869.—A splendid farewell
American banquet was given to Gen. Dik at
the Grand Hotel to-night.. Between three and
four hundred persons were present. 1 did not
notice any foreigners in the room. Messrs.
Washburne ' the- General's "successor; Burlin
• game and Bullock, of Massachusetts, were the
only American guests. Mr. Cowdin, of New
York, presided.
General Dix, in response to the toast of his
health, delivered an eloquent speech, thank
ing the assembly ler the compliments paid
him. He reviewed the past progress, and re
ferred to the future prospects oft heir common
country. Alluding to the completion of the
Pacific Railroad, he said it realized the pro
phetic dream and great thought of Columbus,
by opening a western passage frotn Europe to
the Indies. He said that in the present cen
tury little more was needed to complete
the -work. It engaged no external attraction
to induce a pressure outward or from within
so as to divert the public Mind from
.the work:
There never was an instance in the history of
' humanity when society possessed so many el
ements calculated to devote the attention of a
great people towards internal developthent,
and turn- their thoughts from the fatal policy of
forcible agg - randisement,
which instinct,com
bined with thespirit of international discord,
carries with it all the elements of do—
mestic disaster and humiliation. If the juris
i fiction of the United States -of America be en
larged it will be by amicable arrangements
with other States. America gained nothing
at any time by violence or injustice, and she
desires to gain nothing in the future by un
worthy schemes of territorial aggramlizement,
by winch nations, sooner or later, are sure •
to work out their 'own: dovinfall. If future
accessions of territory come, it Will be, as in
the past, from 'causes . : prepared beyond
the circle of our influences, and by
agencies.higher than oiir! enn. After allud
ing to the proper ambition of the American
people •the General said : 'We. may trust in
Providence for a continuance of : , pur national
prosperity, if in our intercourse with foreign
States; we conform to those rides of inter
national right and obligation which have re
ceived the sanction of the civilized world; de
manding only that the' same maxims of reeip,
rocal justice shall be sacredly respected by
others; that the high seas shall be recognized
as a common pathway; and that the nations
shell:. be free from all ! pretensions of
superiority` or arbitrary control. In
relation to France, he said-that- there existed .
between America and France,.. from the ear
lieSt period, a strong bond of intiiiity which
should never be broken: France came to Our
aid, at a trying ordeal, in the: infancy of the

- tVeria.Ve special and credible advices that,
by means of seven or eight expeditionS which
lave within a few months left New York and
Philadelphia, the Cubans have reitelied 'large
and, somewhat s tirprising 'quantitis of arms
and munitions of war. The Cuban anthciris

informed, been incessantly active, and the re

at no late day, the campaign of General Qne-
Sada, is believed •to have assumed a new as
pect, in proof of which are the series of sue
. cesses.lately achieved for Cuba at Las Tunas,
Altagracia, Sabana Nueva, the Bay of Nipe,
and near -.Puerto Padre, all of which are
claimed by Quesada's forces. The following,
is an authentic list of the expeditions alluded
to, and their cargoes of military supplies: By
the Salvador; from Key West, 1,500 arms and
three field- pieces. From Nassau, by
the same, 2,500 guns and 5 cannon. 13y
the Perrin; 3,660 guns and 6 cannon. By the
Grapeshot, 4,000 guns and 2 cannon. These
vessels originally left New York. Those sent
from Philadelphia in the first expedition there
from were three schooners with 3,500 arms and
four steel guns. This cargo was delivered near
Trinidad on the lith of April, and has already
if report be credible, told with effect on the
situation in that greatly disaffected quarter
The second _ expedition had its landing
at the___same___place____with 3,500 guns in
a small steamer. The third expedition
has just gone with 2,500 arms. By these
various expeditions the• Cubans have re
ceived 21,100 small arms and 22 cannon or
field-pieces. These supplies, received within a
period comparatively brief, constitute the most
decided and extensive aid the Cubans have
ever obtained. There is reason to believe that
the Cubans are powerfully supported in a now
and unexpected quarter, of the character of
which-we-are-not -permitted-to-speak. Their
cause is not likely to fail, we understand, for
want of efficient symPathy on the part of the
North. Never have the patriots of Cuba
seemed so confident of victory. " -
We are favored with private advices from
Havana representing the extreme corruption
of the SpaniardS there, and the venal indiffer
ence of a number of their officials to the fail
ure or success of the war. So gross had the
avarice of these. officials or officers become,
that it was a matter of belief that they had
privately sold arms and supplies of all <
kinds to the enemy. . indeed, it, is
known to Cubans resident in New York,
that the first supplies of arms, some thousands
in number, received by.the Cubans, were
bought in in • the Spaiards themselves.
Charges or reports of corruption are still com
mon at the capital, and in the field. Not less
significant is the fact that Spanish papers be
tray a tone of concession to the rebels, one of
them going so far as to admit that the rebellion
is gaining headway.
• The appointment to the Captain-General
ship of Caballero do nodas is viewed by the
Cuban authorities in Now York as a
sign of fiercer and more merciless hostilities
on the part ofthe mother country. De .Rodas
is an able and prompt commander,, and will as
semble arcan - IMM the worst and least scru
pulous chiefs of the anny,such as belong to the
class of the'. duellist . Escalente. it
is expected that he will draw

Cuba, relative to the recognition of the bellig

The "wealthy Englishman" whose gene
' rosity shows itself in a refusal to accept the
legal rate. of interest on the United States
"bon'ds, and. who_has .returnecLfiye-twenties-to
the Treasury Department as "conscience
money;" is said to be a lunatic. In England
he was famous for the same thing. His mania
is a low rate of interest for money, which he
insists ought to be enforced all over the world.
He is not partial to United States bonds any
more than he is to British consols. The story
that Secretary Boutwell had written him and
invited him to visit Washington is incorrect.
