y Allis, Sept. 7, 1870.—The members of the
I'ori.s Lv.rjmldtif \rtre returning to appoint a
committee to consider the three prooosals
submitted by Palikao, Thiers and Favre.
A company of the National Guard, having
charge.of the gates, shoutki deisJtemice as the
deputies paSs. Some of, the nationals mount
the steps of the. palace and signalize-to their
comrades frdm the Route do la Concorde.
Presently these rush forward, followed by a
crowd of all classes,’shouting “ vive la repub
lic ue.” ’
Cnee inside the Palace . gates the people
spread themselves all over the building except
in the ball where thd sittings are held. The
hall of Pas Perdu# is closed. The next hall is
occupied by .troops, who fraternize with the
people; ■■ M. Orem ieux-addresses thecrowd,
who demand the withdrawal of the troops.
M .Palikao appears andpromises tliatthe troops
shall bexemoved. President Schneider, led by
two officers, crosses the' court-yard. pale
haggard, and with tears in his eyes. He dis
appears into the hall where the sittings are
lu Id. Attempts were made to force the doom.
General Mottercuige orders the ’National
Guards to defend the entry. Loud cries of
‘ Decbeance, Vive la Repoblique!” The
Deputies of the Left pass out and are ac
claimed. Gambetta recommends calmness,
end says a majority must proclaim “Dechc
pece.” In one of the-galleries somebody be
gins a speech. Then enter a few Deputies of
the Right, but suddenly, as if panic-stricken,
they retreat precipitately.
Schneider Notr Appears.

At this moment a small side door" under the
galleries opens and sonic thirty persons push

withdraw, and closes ;tho doer, locking it.

his taints and courage as a soldier. Upon the
death of Ills father, some years ago, lie be
came entitled, under the French law of sue-:

The General has none. He simply remarked
that his brother needed the property more
than he did, and relinquished his share .of it.'
Isot long afterward his brother likewise died.
Upon tins occurrence, the General observed
that,, haying no family" of his own. lie was the
better able to provide for that which. Provi
dence had bestowed upon him. He adopted

carriage, reduced his own domestic expendi

of providing for the whole, of his late brother’s
family and household.
An Able Speech.
The following remarks were made in the
Republican .Convention at Saratoga, N.
yesterday, by G. XV. Curtisi# .
, Mr. Curtis was conducted to the chair by
Judge James and John A. Griswold, and pro
ceeded to address the Convention as follows*
Speech of Mr. Curtis. *

Governor whol will sign ah Erie Rail
road bill. We tnust. remember as wo advance
the history of the past, and how the past few
yeare rung with cries of victory. The history
°t the Republican party Is written in the
noblest years of the history of our country.
During its dominance the country has been
raised to Understanding of fair play tor
all men and the right of every man to control
himself. Our party has maintained that justice
is the best policy. Every issue has been wise
ly and bravely met as it arose. I will not re
hearse at this time the full and splondid history
ot our party,; the iuSp we have done speak for
themselves. I beg every republican to re
number that 4be true secret of success has
hem, not tuat our principles were for justice
iiberty, but that we have applied and
arid practiced-^these thiugs. The majority have
not been seeking their own personal welfare,
but, r rather, ; {fprgetting self, they have done
ait in their power for the country. It is not
bo much what the republicans have said and
done yesterday, but what they say and
do to-day, that will influence the result. Thoir
character in the past being only a certificate
of fulfilment in the future. We must give our
full views r on tbe question of flay. We ‘
should take up men whose records jue guar
antees that they will uphold the character and
principles of the Republican party. All we
want is an honest election, with the votes cast
honestly counted, and wo must succeed. In
politics it is not to be considered whether the
Republicans furbish the best conceivable gov
ernment, butrather whether that party does
not give the best practicable administration
and furnish the beet guarantees;
1 wish to draw* attention to one point, and
that is that the history of the Democratic
party is written in the blackest colors. ' They
do not contest-for power as their own reward
of the past, but upon what they promise. The
- history'of the past services of the Rephblicam
party is a sufficient warrant- for«~the-futurdf
One ground which the Democrats contc.st.upnn
is a relief from taxfcs. Shall we take the
chances of Democratic dishonesty and the
disturbance of-all the measures of reconstruc
tion, aud allow them to return to power in the
nation ? General Grant went into power
March 4,3869. As the old Roman Generals
were raised on tfio-sbiclds of their soldiers and
borne in triumph, he took the placobf anarchy
and confusion,. Others hau cried peace,
but General Grant has made peace, and the
people seized the?hoaestand sagacious soldier
and lilted him into the place he has so worthily
filled. If,the administration loses power it
will be because the honest and intelligent
masses of the Republican party neglect their
duty and forget their fidelity, in ancient
Athens two men once contested for the suf
frages of the pfeople. One was profuse in his
proimsGS Of what he would do, and the other
came forward jandsaid: “ WhaChe promises
I have dope. This reply can well be applied
to the Democratic 1 and Republican parties.
All that the Democrats promise we have
done, ov are .doing. I give now one
or two facts. In the last seventeen months
of Andrew Johnson’s Presidency the national
debt was increased thirty millions; in the first
seventeen months of General Grant’s adminis
tration the debfc'has been decreased one hun
rired and seventy millions; and Congress at its
last session reduced the : taxes more than
eighty*tl This simultaneous re
duction of. the -debt and taxes implies the
honesty ona abihty of the Republican Admin
istration with, a mqst faithful regard to its tra
ditions. It has'.tnaintained peace with all
nations andthehameatJd power of the United
States was never pinch Respected as it is at
the present tiiqe,,under General Grant’s Ad

the spirit and principles of the men which
nave gained the victory and given France a
republic, which we pray the people mav have
the sagacity to maintain. It is not because of
the victory gained at Saratoga that our re
volutionary fathers succeeded at Yorktbwn • ’
it was not because of Vicksburg and Shiloh that
Grant, received the surrender at Appromattox,
but because our lathers and General Grant
fought out their- battles on one line, never
stopping until the final victory was gained.
V e must fight on the lineof 1861 and 1868, and
keep up the contest at every point until every
citizen has bis full rights. The true mission of
the Republican party was defined by Abraham

fought for no section, no State, but for the
great principles ot humanity, which lie de

people shall not perish from earth.

About 8 o’clock last evening two stages full

Terrible Freak of Insanity/
A poor crazy fellow, who had formerly been
in theZouaves, had been put ..in. the asylum
for delirium tremens. As they supposed he was- ’
cured, he was allowed to leave. The poor,
wretch barricaded himself in a room of a club .
house, near tho Palazzo del C.'ianccllerie, aftor
providing himself tecretly with ammunition
and arms. From the window of this room ho
amused himself by picking oft'the passers-by.
He tired no less than 80 times, and actually
killed and wounded 37 persons!
He protected himself behind the window
casing, but at last they managed to wound
him, and then forced their way into his room.
He is now i n the military insane hospital.
For some days the ZouavCß went about the
streets without sabres. Notwithstanding the
alarm at the Vatican, tbo Pope went immedi
ately to the place where the sad event occurred
and gave his benediction and consolation to
the wounded and dying. Pius IX. was in the
military service in youth, and although so de
vout and religious, ho has the natural instincts
of a soldier—resolution and pluck.
Since then, in order to put an end to the
military dissensions which naturally spring
up daily between the Prussian and French
soldiers serving in the Pontifical army, Ptus
IX. has authorized the departure of all , sol- ,
diers of-the-Legiomof Antibes-wlio wish to-rav;
turn to France. 150 soldiers have already left, ,
but none of the officers have profited by the

Italians on the Frontier.
There was a report that the Italian soldiers ;
had left the froptier; on the contrary, they £
have been assembling in large numbers; at -.
Temi and the towns nearest to Rome on tha v .
Italian boundaries. Yesterday the Pope,lua- (
easy about this great accumulation of forces so
near Rome, requested the French Ambassa- .
dor, M. do Bonneville, to ask thei French re
presentative. at Florence, M. da Jlalaret,what—
this camp Of thirty or forty thousand men
meant just at the very threshold of Rome.
M. de Maiaret replied that this collection of
troops concerned Italy more than Rome. At
Naples the insurrectionary movements are
threatening. They are said to be more ia
favor of tbo old'Bourbon family, however,
than of Red Blurts. If Francis 11. had a little
more dash and spirit in him,he could easily re
gain the throne his brave young Paladin an
cestor, Don Carlos, won for his family in t 755.
North and South Italy.
Bo complicated are matters in Italy that it hi
believed by some of the far-seeing politicians
in Rome that in the Congress of Nations
which is to he held after this war Italy will be
divided into two kingdoms. South Italy, and
Sicily,with Francis 11. and the pretty queenly
Mario Sofia on the throne : North Italy with
its old 'ceded province of Savoy, and Prince
Humbert for'King, and the Papal States re
constituted to keep the balance.
However, all tbe.se speculations may be
thrown to the winds by “ Circumstance, that
nuspixitual God,” who is marching swiftly
and hotly now oyer the battlefields. The
Italian Government has shown itself both too
greedy aiui too weak,: however, in the late
events, to merit strong or sympathy
from any nation in, the coming Congress. It
is known that she owes her royal existence to
Louis Napoleon L and!it is also ; known that a
treaty exists between the Cabinets of Florence
and the Toilerios in which 'ltaly promised'
France 100,000 tnen'in ease of need.
