reorreopondence of the Phila. Evening Bulletin-I
PARTS, Tuesday, Jan. 18, 1870.—Yesterday
was another day of emotions, but of a differ
ent kind from those which Irecently depicted
to you as taking place on the oedasban of poor
Victor Noir's funeral. g`lie- (Recession on the
demand made by the now Government for per
mission to prosecute Rochefort was fixed .to
come off in the Chamber; and the destre to
be present, or at least to be near
at hand, so as to hear the first tidings
of bow the debate had tennin.sted, was so
great that two hours before the sitting
commenced or access was given to. the gal
leries, the outskirts of the Palale Bourbon
were Surrounded by dense groups of people.
One 'could not help contrasting thedifference
of appearance between the, intense interest
now manifested in the proCeedings of the
Legislature, and the • eagerness to obtain ad
mission to the place of assembly, and what
was the case only a few years back, when the
deputies so often spoke to empty benches, as
far as the public ,was concerned, like sic
tom who were unable to "draw a house."
But yesterday the approaches, to the Chamber
were so completely blocked up that the police
had the greatest difficulty in opening an as
cess even for members, and were at last
obliged 'to till! half-a-dozen troopers to their
, assistance, who kept a. narrow passage clear
by riding up and down and backing their
horses upon the crowd. The people, how
ever, were perfectly good-humored, and it
was evident that mere curiosity and idleness
had brought thither by far the largest portion.
Whether any "manifestation" would have
been made had Rochefort appeared among
the crowd, I do not know ; for that gentleman
prudently kept himself out of sight, and slip
ped into the House by the small side-door
which opens upon the Rue Bourgogne. I
did certainly hear an isolated cry now and
then of Vim Itodiefort ! But then so TAM also
of Firi. rEldpercur I—the latter being ad
dressed to Napoleon 111., who, curiously
enough, might be seen calmly walking up
and down the Terrace of the Tuileries
Gardens, which border the Place de
la eoncorde, almost at the very moment
when., his puny adverear7 was traversing
the bridge of the same name on his way to
1- , defend himself, or rather to hear himself ac
-1 eused ((Or defence he madenone),in the Chau:v.-
her. If Rochefort had driven through the
1 Place de la Concorde, which be did not, he
I might have shaken hli fist at " that brigand
1 Bonaparte" as he passed!
Well, the discussion came on, and was con
ducted and terminated, on the whole, and
considering the excitement of the subject
!garter, with a wonderful amount of calm
ness and self-restraint. The first incident was
the presentation of a motion by a moderate
member of the Left ,or Left Centre, M. Es
tancelin, to the effect that the Chamber,
"having full confidence in the firmness of the
Cabinet, and doing justice to the measures it
had taken for the preservation of , the public
peace, was of opinion that now it was better
to 'withdraw the demand for liberty to prose
cute." There was, perhaps, a goud deal to be
said in favor of such 'a course. But lit. 011i
vier cut short the motion at once by rising
and saying that the Ministry made a
Cabinet question of their dernafid, and
would regard a' refusal as a vote of want of
confidence, which would necessitate their
resignation. There was no other reply to this
possible, except to go' on with the debate
Rochefort, who is an utterly hopeless orator,
stammered through a few words which meant
to say that he (wisely) declined defending
himself. And then 31 .Picard, the best speaker
on the Lett, next to Jules Fevre, and more
judicious and calm than the latter, rose and
pleaded his colleague's cause a thousand times
better than he could have done it himself.
He urged' the new Ministers not- to in
atigurate the first free government under
the Empire by re-opening those
press prosecutions which even the personal
government bad allowed tacitly to drop. He
dwelt upon the general excitement of the
moment and of the personal feelings of the
writer, aggravated by the death of his friend
and collaborator, when the article in ques
tion was penned, and urged the prudence of
not giving fresh cause for popular emotion.
In short, 31. Pieard made the very best of a
very indifferent case.. He might have added
further, but be did not, that the effusions of
the .3faiseiffithe were often only like the
ravings of a madman, and that
it was a poor compliment to the
political intelligence of the French people to
suppose that they could be misled by such ap e
peals. The reply of the new Minister was as
crushing and unanswerable in argument, as it
rose to the highest pitch of eloquence in lan
guage. Indeed, it is now generally remarked
and admitted that M. 011ivier Ls "coming out"
more and more by every fresh effort and by-,
every new call made upon him for exertion.
He is, as one says, rising with the' situation,
and showing himself equal to thedifficulties of
it in a way far beyond one's expectation. He
shows himself to be thoroughly liberal with
out being weak and firm without being re-ac
tionary. He is ready to admit every possible
expression of opinion, eitery. criticism upon'
himself and his colleagues in office. Bat,
neither he nor they will consent to remain in
power and allow of two things t—gross per
sonal abuse of the Head of the State, or direct;
appeals to the people to take up arms against;
the public authorities. As to the charge
likely to be made against bine—that' he.
wanted to get rid of a troublesome'
deputy,—M. Olhvier may rely for ant
answer to that upon two very' well-known ;
facts, viz. t That in the first place it was en
tirely owing to the Emperor that Rochefort;
was allowed to come to Paris and be elected
at all; and, 'secondly, that his strongest adver
saries could not wish him to be in a vroise,
place than the Chamber, where he rarely.
opens his mouth without making an ass of;
himself., Perhaps the best argument .sgaint=t;
prosecuting him is that"he will be a far 'more/
formidable opponent in a prison than heaver'
can be on the floor of the Rouse. I hearda,ii
American near me, say that, if Rochefort had',
said half as much theTTnited ?aides Wiri n g`.
the late war as he had recetitlysaldiarrance,h*
would have been popped 'into jail in half .ani

The Chamber authorized the proeoeution by
a vote 222 agalaat 34.
Last night there were a few partial 'assem
blages in the streets, but nothing of any con
sequence. Public confidence is strongly and
'manifestly reviving in presence of the firm
attitude and straightforward action of the
new Goieniment. No one doubts 'the sin
cerity of the new Ministers and- their. deter
mination to fulfil all their promises. Official
interference in the elections has been strictly
prohibited. All press cases will in future be
submitted to a jury. The army, will be re.
duced. Measures of electoral and municipal
reform will be introduced. In short, the sys

The lattef moiety of Mr. Scott's list of pic
tures will be sold out by hint at his gallery;
1117 CheStnut street, this evening. Although
the collection is a mixed affair, there are good
pickings to be had from it; and the half now
remaining is of a higher quality than the frac
tion disposed of last night. Included are two
heads, we think indubitably by Gilbert Stuart,
one a Washington, and the other a likeness of
Mrs. Greenleaf, one of the Allen family, of
Allentown. Some Diisseldbff pictures deserve
attention. Litsehauer's "Unlucky Number"
L-anfarinorer scratching his head over a cui
rass numbered thirteen, which, comes back to
him for repairs with a bullet-hole precisely.,
over the heart—is a lively piece of expression
and a good picture. Fair examplei of the fa
miliar names ,in German art—Koekkoek,
Kruseman, De Buel, Nordenberg and Jaws
semi—will be found included in to-night's sale.
One of Henry 0. Bispham's most telling con
ceptions,—a Landseer-lite group of dogs in
war , council—vrilillso be sold, and A. Parton
contributes several landscapes,of which a view
of Harper's Ferry is the best.
Mr. Haseltine's engravings, advertised to be
sold therlast three evenings of this week, are
exceedingly interesting, comprising some de
lectable curiosities, and forming a more un-,
meronsiand representative lot than we have
ever known to be exposed in this city at once.
There Isla very mellow impression of Raphael
Morghen's matchless engraving from the Last
Supper, by Da Vinci; Raphael's greatest Ma-
donna, that of San Sisto, is 'represented by
different German engravers, Nordheim having
executed one of the largest and best studies;
twoancient imprmsioas, in tolerably fair pre
servation, of Dnrer's realistic "Adam and
Eve," are comprised; Titian's great Assump
tion, the original of which is one of the glories
of Venice, is present in Schiavoni's large and
sympathetic print; "Enhens's principal Last"
Judgment is here, engraved by Hess; Mar
illo's great "Madonna and Angels" is repre
sented by a soft French plate from the burin
of Leroux. There are some fine prints not
often met with, such as Planer's delicate copy
of " Saint Mary of Egypt," by Spagnoletto,
and a number of the most subtle faces from
Da Vinci', including that Sphynxofloveliness,
La Joconde, in Calamatta's large and dreamy
style of shading. Among modern plate's,
Kaulbach's " Madhouse," Which made
the beginning of his fame, is highly
Interesting ; and the Munich frescoes of Cor
nelius, engraved by Merz, are imposing and
intellectual. There are quantities of the
French masters,as seen by the artificial-looking
"Flora caressed by Zenhyrus," after Gerard,
so suggestive, of opera bouffe and one of
Tost 'ee's or Schneider's attitudes; while later
work of a higher mental grade Ls not want
ing, such as the India-paper and plain impres
sions of Delaroche's " Marie Antoinette
leaving the Judgment-hall," by Franqois. To
complete the symposium of nationalities,there
are some of the finer English prints, including
several of Turner's landscapes. As the. collec
tion numbers upwards of eleven hundred, we
shall not be expected to particularize very
minutely; but the pictures are of 'such a
quality.as to advertise themselves, and attract
every citizen who collects, or has the ambi
tion of collecting- Mr. Scott will attend to
the disposal of these sheets.
For the information of those who mean to
extend their galleries of paintings this winter,
we feel that weinght to state, and give pro
minence to the statement, that the great art
sale of the season has not yet taken place, or
been advertised. A sale is in immediate pros
pect, however, which will tempt every con
noisseur. It will be both large and select.
One of the best Philadelphia galleries of
French, Gerirnn and Belgian canvases, rein
forced by some of the finest works in New
York of similar parentag,e,will form a catalogue
of nearly two hundred subjects, among
which it is determined that not a single
mediocre picture shall find a place.' This col
lection will be put up for sale before the close'
of the present month, and by Mr. Scott, who.
seems to have obtained the monopoly of auc- ,
tioneering in the higher walks of art.
To complete our statement of the doings of
this lively art-seascah we should mention the
sale, by Martin Brothers, of the galleries of
Mr. Peiman and Mr. Richardson. The first
named gentleman represents in, this city the
well-known importer of German art, Mr.
D'Huyvetter ; as for Mr. Richardson, he has
been mousing around fora lifetime amongthe
picture-stores of the old world, and has a
quantity of artistic curiosities which cannot be
duplicated on this continent, Virtuosos will
notice the advertisement in another column.
The sale will be held to-morrow and next
evenings, at the gallery opposite the Academy
of Fine Arts.
lery,ll.l.7 ChPstnut street, commenced last
evening. Prices monstrously low. The sale
will be continued and closed this evening. Mr.

Feesiassfeen—Dineovery of an American
Itervolnsionary Armament.
A London paper of the 21st of December
reorts': ,
Considerable exbitetuent has been caused la
the military and civil circles Sheerness by
the discovery of a number of weapons and
other articles of war which had apparently
been placed fn three of the loopholes of the
fortification which divides the island, sepa
rating the inner and outer motitetetiveen the
two towns for the purpose of being taketsaway
by other person or persons; and as the wea
pons; &c, are of the same deseziptionras those
used in the United States army, the motive
has been assigned to Fenianisui. It appears
that as three men named Henry Kelsey, .lbhrt
Deal and Frederick Piper were passing the
spot in question,about ten o'clock onTuesday
morning, they noticed something shining 'in
one of the loopholes. They examined the place
and found one pistol and a dagger, and upon a
further examination of the two adjoining loop ,
boles they also found another pistol and dag
lier, two boxes containing caps, , one powder
ask tilled with gunpowder , one tin canister;
containing ; ot a pound' of powder,- and
a buff leather cross belt with a black leather
cartridge box attached; similar to that worn
by the American army. These were handed
to Bombardier Frazer, of the Coast Brigade
Artillery, and were subsequently given over
to the care of Police Sergeant Noakes, who
with his men have been instituting a most
rigid inquiry to find out by whom • these
weapons were placed in the loopholes. One
of the pistols is an old cavalry weapon, the
handle of, which is beautifully inlaid with
silver, but appears to be unfit for use. The
other pistol is.a more modern weapon, and
this was found to be loaded. It
bore the name of " Bates, York." A small
bowie-knife, with the maker's name engraved;
"Mason, , ,Sheffield," bore the following in
scriptioes : " The Americans ask for nothing
but what is right, and submit to nothing that
is wrong." "The United States, the land of
the free and home of the brave, protected by
her noble and brave volunteers." In the cen
tre of these inscriptions is the American eagle,
having on each side the image of two sentries,
with the following words underneath: "Ready
to defend." The other knife is what is called
a dagger-knife is a formidable weapon, and,
from its general appearance, appears to be
similar to those worn in the American army.
No motive can be assigned for the placing
of thcs.e articles in such prominent position,
being, as they were, befoxe the view of the
passers-by, and more especially within 100
yards of a sentry of the royal artillery, who
is there on duty both day and night.
Exit Troppmann—The Last Scene In the
Poplin Tragedy... Execution of the
[From Gidereenie mesetneer, January 70.1
This terrible act of expiation took place this
morning on the Place de la Roquette, in
presence of a considerable crowd, the greatest
number of whom hadpassed the night on the
grroned. The various portions of the guillo
tine arrived in a long vehicle about 2 in the
morning, and nearly three hours were oc
cupied in setting up the dreadful machine.
The spectators consisted of the very
lowest class, and, spent all the early part
of the night in drinking, eating, singing,
and sometimes even quarrelling. A strong
cordon of troops was arranged round the
place to keep the central portion clear. When
the guillotine bad been erected, the noise of
the crowd sometimes ceased, and their general
conduct then presented nothing to reprehend.
At last the executioner, Mr. Heindeindrech, a
tall, po - vrerful man, dressed in black, i 8 years of
age, with white hair, ascended the steps of the
machine t and examined minutely every,part,
in order that , all might act freely at the
supreme moment.
As soon as his inspection had terminated,
he slowly descended, and entering the prison,
signed the usual receipt for the person of the
criminal. At about the same time arrived M.
Lombard, peace -officer ofthe arrondissement,
and M. Blavier, one of the police-officers of
the central brigades. Tbey hadsoon to divide
the crowd in order to allow the Abbe Crozet',
the chaplain, to pass and perform the last
duty to the prisoner. .At a few minutes be
fore cis, accompanied by the executioner,
these two assistants, the Govertior, and some
- warders, the priest entered Troppinann's cell.
The prisoner bad slept but httle, and each
time that he fell into a done he suddenly
started up, a prey to the most gloomy
anticipations. The men who had the
charge of watching him affirm that such had
been the case, more • or less,--ever' since his
condemnation. When the sinister party en
tered the cell, ITxoppman was lying on the
bed, with his face towards the wall, and not
asleep. When the head of the prison placed
his band on his shoulder, the prisoner was
seized witha convuleive trembling, which in- --
creased visibly when the fatal words- were ut
tered—"Treppmann, your application for
commutation has been rejected. The hour is
come!" Thennfortunate man then turned
round, and, regarding with a haggard eye the
persons near, could scarcely rise. The chap
lain advanced, and encouraged him to show
some firmness, and in his last moments think
of God. The wardens then placed his own
clothes near him, removing those belong
ing to the prison,. and helped him to dress,
as he was almost incapable of any effort. He
was thee left for a short time alone with the
abbe. after, which the ceremony of the "toi
lette," that is to say, cutting off his back hair
and removing the collar of his shirt, took
place, the priest all the time reciting prayers
aloud. The prisoner was then asked if he de
sired to take any refreshment, but by a sign of
the bead declined. At last the governor ap
proached the prisoner and handed him to the
executioner, who gave in return the receipt :
The assistantsthen strapped clo wnTroppmannet
hands to his sides, and placed another leather
thong on his ankles, which act prevented too
long steps, and the terrible cortege set out for
the scaffold.
The executioner's two men placed them
selves one at each side, and supported Tropp
mann by holding him by his arms. the abbe
all the time following as elose as poseible, with
a crucifix, and whispering wordy of consola
tion. The, eeecutioner came next, and then
several persome obliged by their Official posi
tion to be present. On issuinefrom the prison
on the Place, the unhappy criminal perceived
the fatal- machine. right .opposite, and ine
stinctively recoiled. From that moment all
power of Motion seemed nearly gone, and
were it not for tee men at his side he must
have fallen. On his appearing outside a
loud murmur burst from the crowd, and the
noise increased to the end: That period of
time was, however, of short duration, ati the
prisoner was rapidly aided, or rather carried
up the steps, of the scaffold, the chaplain ae

Mr. Delmont; a Dominican resident in' New
York, and representing the interests of ,this
Cabral party, as agent of, the new Govern
ment of Hayti. These two gentlemen-will be
presented to- the President , to-morrow. It is
understood that the speeches to be made si/1
be merely formal presentatioas of, creden--
tials. Mr-Folsom states that the fooling_ in
Hayti against annexation is very bitter. The
chief cause of Gen. Tate's banishment grovis
out of a belief that he was negotiating for a
cession or lease of the Mole St. Nicolas. The
General declares there wasno truth this,
but the report has been used with consider
able effect in Hayti. Minister Bassett is very
unpopular with the new Government, it being
charged that lie made himself a decided Null
sari of the fallen Government. There is. itts
reason to believe, however that be has done
any more than his duty. Mr. Folsom desks
not hesitate to declare that the'
annexation of San Doming.o
if consummated, cause considerable disorder
in both Republics. Saget is not expected 4
remain President long. Gen. Brice of the
South is reported the more popular candidate
for chieftaincy. Gen. Tate, with his wife, will
leave here for New York on Saturday. He
willremain in the United States, and- unless
the decree of exile is removed, 111probahly
take up his abode here permanently. Re has
