to; sit upon a stool, by reason of the, shortness
.of her legs. Miss Pecksniff sat upon a stool,

Mr. Pecksniff was a 'moral fnan: a graye

PARIS GOSSIP.
. IFrom the Now York Times.]
The incident of the election which most dis
pleased the Emperor, was tlio success of Ca
vniguac. Ho would sooner have been,brought
faco to face with any other man in the Empire
than with his hated rival of 184 G. He will only
be too glad if Cavaignuc refuses to take the

The heat that just now reigns in Paris, sa
crilegiously called by one of its talented writers,
L’anli'chambre de I’en/er, is at the maximum
of 94 deg., which you will allow isnot bad in
a latitude of 40 deg., north. Tho natural mild
ness of the climate contributes to an equaliza
tion of the general heat, and one does not suf
fer as much as from the same thcrniometrical
heat ot New York, for the reason that there the
air is dry and piercing, whether in hqat or cold;
your winds corne from off a vast continent lying
west of you, loaded with the dry air peculiar to
the earth i whereas, at Paris, the air always
comes from the ocean, and fa ulways surcharged
with more or leas of vapor. This vapor modi
fies the sun’s rays of summer and the freezing
cold of winter, and obviates those sudden
changes from heat to cold, so. peculiar to tlie
Atlantic States. .Moreover, the city of Pnrla
has tho advantage of being built exclusively of
stone: and living here, with a still lively re
collection of the effect of a 94 deg. sun fulling
on the brick walls of New York, and convert
ing the whole city into a suffocating furnace,
J can only wonder that, during the canicule,
the place is not entirely deserted—especially,
since all around it are tho finest retreats fpr
coolness and comfort in the world. A very
common experiment explains all these hygro
motrical differences between tlie two fcouhtries.
Clothes that are hung out to dry, all things
being equal, require, in France, just twice' as
long an exposure as in the United States. No
experiment could bo more conclusive than this
in explaining the atmospheric phenomena tliiit
are observed in the two countries. '
Whether it is tlie effects of tlie diabolic heat
that reigns, or some other inappreciable pheno
menon in tho life of that strange individual
Jlume, it is yet true that lie professes to have
recovered Ilia powers, or to use Ilia own ex

and that this conversion was made under the
influence of tho Peru de liavignon, .who lias

After tho numerous experiments of last winter

those who are not prepared to believe in tho
supernatality of Ids exploits, and fortunately
for the credulity of mankind in general these
are in the majority, js an enigma. There is
no doubt hut that his power lies in hfa own
cunning and tho audacity which he carries into
his operations. Tho passugo of this man
through Paris will form a singular chapter in
the history of the French Court of the present
day.
Before her departure for Plombieros, tho
Empress, relieved of the' restraint which is
thrown around her by tho presence of tho Em
ppror, and tlte etiquette which is de rigaer’ as
long as the Court is officially, at, Paris, amused
herself in various little incognito. parties of
pleasure, that no doubt served to recall to her
the'happiness of her younger days: One
evening she was noticed- in the prowd at file'
Pre-Catalan, Bois do Bologne, on the occasion
of onti of tlie fetes that havo now converted
that charming spot into the fashionable rondpz
vons of tlicf city. Her Majesty -w<ls attended by
several persons of her -suite, and by M.
Ber, Manager of tho « Pro,” and, when in
danger of bclug recognized, masked her
face iyith her handkerchief. Her Majesty
seemed delighted at' this liberty from eti
quette, and did not complain of those who
stepped on hor toes by accident, or too rudely
elbowed her. A fow evenings ago, just ns they
were commencing to play at tho Tlicatre-
Francais, two ladies, in cupuchonu followed by
a gontleitian in a white cravat, were seen in the
lobby of the first circle, demanding immedi
ately from tho attendants a box. There were
none disengaged, and the more flic attendants
declared tlio fact, tho more ono of tlio ladies
seemed disappointed. At tho noise of tlio collo
quy in tile lobby, a gentleman who occupied one
of the front lodges with two fine-looking ladies,
rose ftom his seat, and stepping out, exclaimed,
‘•Why, that’s tho EmprOss!” In effect, it
was Her Majesty, who, in company witii the
Duke and Duchess de Bussnno, hud concoived
tlio fantasie of seeing the play and the audi
ence , from another point of view, than tho
eternal official box where, instead of seeing
herself, she is poßted as a show for the rest.
She wanted, for once, to play truant to the
official box. How often,’ indeed, must those
placed in official positions desire to eqjoy a
'little of tho repose and tlio pleasures of the
simple burgeoisos I Tho ■ gentleman who loft
his box and had recognized the Empress, was
nono othor than the well-known journalist, M.
.Frederick Galllardet, who was cased away
with his affianced bride, Miss Dominique, and
hor mothori M. Gaillardet gallantly offered
his box, through tho Chamberlain, to Her Ma
jesty,, but she thanked him, and finding no
other resource, took refuge in tho hated impe
rial box, to stand as a target for the rest of the
evening to the single and double-barrelled
lorgnettes of the house.
A story is in. circulation in Havre in regard
to Carpcntier, which perhaps you may not
have heard. It seems that tho favorite of M.
do Rothschild, during his short pilgrimage to
the United States, inspired, by what caprice
of woman’s heart I am unable to tell, a ro
mantic affection in the breast of a young Penn
sylvania la<ly;.';the daughter of a rich mer
chant, who has resolved to marry him. Op
posed naturally by her parents in RO fantastic
project, tho young lady, it is said, took, to
flight, and in imitation of her idol, or perhaps
ideal, put her haiid into the strong box which
contained her father’s riches, and carried off
in udvancc her share in tlio parental heritage.

Mibb Madeleine Smith’s Trial.- The Calc
dohian Mercury gives tho following particulars
concerning tho finding of tho jury in this oxciting
case:—After deliberating, thorc wore five for a vor
diotof guilty, and ten for ono of not proven. On the
question of un absolute acquittal tncrowns no di
versity of sentiment whatever. Tho Scotsman,
writing on tho samo subject, says:—We have tho
best authority for Btating that on each of tho three
findings the numbers woro thirteen to two. Tho
minority voted ‘'Guilty” on each occasion. The
Dean or Faculty’s fee was £250. and a “refresher”
of £7O every morning of tho trial. Mr. Young,
who was associated with tbo Doan in hia defence,
received £4OO altogothor.
Tho defenco has cost somewhere about £4,000.
A greater sum than thatwas subscribed for tho pur
pose, by a few leading Glasgow merchants. Ono
old bachelor, a relntivo and namesake of tho junior
member for tho city, put down a thousand pounds os
his own share. The Messrs. Holdsworth, to which
finn William Minnoch belongs, woro, it is said,
willing to give tho sumo measure of assistance; sn
wore tho wealthy family of tho Bairds, and arich un
cle prisoner, from whom sho haa ‘expectations.’
At tke, conclusion of the tragedy, there was en
acted a sh6Vt bit of comedy. During tho forbid
den expressions of applauso, the Lord Justic-Clerk’s
activo oyo had fallen upou a man iu the front gal
lery as particularly enthusiastic, and whom his
Lordship identified nnd pointed out to tho police
man U 3 having in hia hand n newspaper. After the
prisoner had been dismissed, the Lord Justice-Clerk
said; “Is that young man in custody bring him
tothisbnr.” The culprit was then marehed in,
fully guarded, and having been plucod in tbo
proper position, immediately opposite the presiding
judge, his Lordship, having adjusted his glasses
and surveyed him narrowly, spoke as follows.
“This Court has ordered you to its bar os an of
fender against its roles; but after looking at you,
we do not think you aro worthy to stand even iu
that position. You appear a very stupid person
Fooliab, silly fellow ! Get away!” The criminal,
who looked a 9 if he expected a nine day’s trial,
and had been calculating tho number of years of
pendl servitude attaching to his offence, suddenly

No. 26 South FOURTH Street, Philadelphia.—TßUTH
IS MIGUTY, AND MUST PREVAIL!
lleport of the Committee appointed to Superintend the
, °f t,u Iron Safes <*< Reading, February
2itA,lBsi: Rbadixg, March 4th.
The undersigned, members of tho committee, do re
spectfully report, that we saw the two Safes originally
agreed upon hy Farrelfl A Herring and Evans A Watson,
placed side by side in a furnace, viz ; the Safe in use hy
the Paymaster of the Philadelphia and Reading Rail
road Company, in his office at Reading, manufactured
by Parrels A Herring, and the Safe in use byU.A
Lantz, in his store, manufactured by Evans A Watson,
and put to books and papors precisely alike.
The fire was started at B.s o’clock, A. M., and kept
up until four cords of green hickory wood, two cords of
: dry oak and half chestnut-top wood were entirely con
sumedj the whole under the superintendence of the
subscribers, members of the committee. The Safes
were then cooled off with water, after which they were
opened, aud the books and papers taken ous by the
committee and sent to H. A. Lantz’s store, for public
examination, after they were first examined and marked
by the committee. The books and papers taken from
the Safe manufactured by Evans A Watson were but
slightly affected by tho intense heat, while those taken
from the Safe manufactured by Parrels A Herring were,
in our judgment, damaged fully fifteen per cent, more
than those taken from Evans A Watson’s Safe.
Wo believe the above to have been a fair and impar
tial trial of the respective qualities of both Safes.
Having been absent durlug the burning, we fully
coincide with the above statement of the condition of
the papers and books taken out of the respective Safes.
