ExtiesiordLuisme, 'Statement by, Napoleon.
The '.%itut Public of . Lyons has 'just pub-
lished a most extraordinary .. anecdote, for, the
truth of which it vouches with great detertni
natien. During the- sojourn of Louis Napo
leon in America, he became very intimate
with a family whose real name the Salut Public
disguises under the pseudonym of Edwards,
derived from the Christian name of its head.
The friendship, ' the -Edwardses felt for the
• Prince was unvarying,and his feelings toward
them when he became Emperor were as con
stant as they had been when U 0 was an exile,
In 1859 Mr. Edwards came to • France
to felicitate his friend on his Italian , victories,_
and - was - received by the Emperor with' much
warmth. The interview was long and private
Mr. Edwards, however, made no secret of
what had passed between them, and repeated
to several of Ms friends the following words of
the Emperor. • TheFrinee Imperial had only
just recovered from a serious illness, and hi
Majesty, still under the impression of his paSt
fears, said to his old friend : "If I had the nods
fortune to lose my son, and all hope for an heir
in a direct line were denied me, :I should have
put into execution an extraordinary project.
t .* * *
I should have given tb France the privileges,
the liberties, the manners of a Republic. I
should have wished to be loo'ked upon as the
tint citizen of my country, after having given
back td it those liberties which olitical ne-
ems' 3. as c get me to e away . or a t e;
in a word, I should have rendered up ossible

Ne - whi - chr - vriffely - nude -stood, and - applie
with energy, can snit France. But I
must give up this dream; a father of a family '
must not burn his son's roof - over his head, and
I must try and conciliate two elements which
masv seem utterly inalienable—the Empire and
liberty. My heirs shall reign, and France
shall lose only a name-the name of republic.
She willsoon have, 1 hoPe, all• the liberal in
stitutions that I have so much admired in the
New World." .* * Such words as these,
at such a time,cerfainly took Mr. Edwards by
surpri&e, and ,created much astonishment and
incredulity in the minds of those to whom he
communicated them:
Clunnibn; and the Connell.
The London Times comments in ,a sarcas
tic vein on the; desire of Dr. Cumming to
atteuclthe (Ecumenical Council, and adds:
The truth is, however, there would be no
place at the'Council for any
useful discussion
on the footing of Dr. Cumming's propositions.
The Council will 'proclaim the Infallibility of
the Pope. It will decree the Spiritual and
Corporal Assumption of the Virgin Mary.

Jronze statue of Commodore
Vanderbilt has been erected on the west front
of the Hudson River Railroad' depot at St.
John's Park, at an expense of $500,900. The
immense statue of the Commodore is placed
fxi'the centre of a colossal bas-relief, which in
geniously illustrates the steamboat and rail
road career of the Commodore. The statue it
self is nearly twelve feet high. It represents
the Commodore Nvith head uncovered and
Svearing his well-known heavy lux.-trimmed
overcoat, his left foot slightly-advanced his
right hand inserted beneath his waistcoat and
his left extended. The attitude is easy and
dignified, andithe likeness accurate. The work
was designed by Ernest Plassman, under the
direction of Captain Degro'ot.

it.at two thousand guineas ; but t • •either to his
great delight or great disappointment, we

distribution of gold, silver, and bronze
medals to the students in painting,

branch of art, appeared to have the lion's

groups. The cheering of the' popular students
relieved the tedium o this part of the day's
Work, the most.interesting of which was the
second part of the proceedings, namely, giving
the medals to the exhibitors at the last salon.
The sensational incident was when Comte de
