FIRE! FIRE! FIRE!
PHILADELPHIA, Way 30, 1863
M. C. Sadter, Esq.,
Pesti Sia :--During the night of May 19,1803, our
Grocery and Provision Store, at North Second and Wil
low streets, took fire at about 2 o'clock a m., and as
the store was a two•story wood bill King it burnt rapidly,
and before the fire engines could act upon the fire, car
whole stock of goods, including much combustible ma
terial, and amounting to over $2 400, were wholly de
stroyed. We had one of your No.ll Chilled Iron Safes,
which was in the hottest part of the fire, and it came
out of the fire not in the least Injured, except the mel
ting off of the name, plate and paint. The contents
inside were not affected in the least, and we consider
the Safe just as good a protection against fire now as
before, and Obeli. use it hereafter with increased confi
dence, The /oar worka as perfectly as before the fire.
Tours truly, AIIiANUS k CROFT,
Late 429 North Second st .
Attention to the above certificate is particularly re
quested, as it is the first trial of LILLIE'S SAFES in
an accidental fire in Philadelphia.
I would say to all parties who want a Fire and
Burglar-proof Safe that . I,ILLIE'S WROUGHT AND
CHILLED IRON SAFES are much the cheapest and
the only real Fire and Burglar-proof Safes now made;
and to those who want simply a Fire-proof,. I would say
that LiLLIE'S WROUGHT IRON SAFE is fully equal
18 all resp.ets to any of the most opeoved makers ; and
is sold at fully one-third less price.
All parties interested are invited to examine the
safes above described, at my store.

AMERICANS ON THE CONTINENT-HOW
THEY LIVE IN PARIS-HOW THE PARIS
IANS FEEL ABOUT THE WAR-FRANCE
UNDER NAPOLEON HI-IMPRESSIONS
OF THE FRENCH CHARACTER-DES
TINY OF THE EMPIRE, ETC., ETC.
COI respondence of the Patriot and Union.
PARIS, June 12, 1863.
Having lived the life.of an eremite in Lon
don, I can hardly appreciate the pleasure of
seeing so great numbers of my countrymen in
Paris. Of. course it is with emotions, and so
forth, that two persons of the same blood,
tongue, and other things nanot under a foreign
sky, but candor compels Inc to say that just
at this juncture one may as well travel alone
in Europe. If I state that many of these ram
bling freemen are "exiles" you may the better
comprehend me. An American exile is rather
an anomalous thing, but if we inolude in the
term the army of "eitempta," we will coma to
ahnutual understanding. Poor and mean are
the adjectives which I may apply to the mass
of my country folks here. Two-thirds of them
have a suspicious way of visiting my room at
dinner time ; the other third have no scruples
at paying for their own liquors and smoking
cigars at five centimes per strangle—or smoke.
Übe Federals here are "alledaddlers" to a man.
They complain of, the temperature in the
States—meaning, I suppose, the draft—and
have, in every case,_"business" leading them
to Rome. They confine their conversation to
the matter of cheap boarding houses, and - are
very anxious to know your sentiments as to
the gentility of third class carriages. They
have an affinity for free institutions, an aver-
Dien to paying two BOW for "attendance," re
gard cabmen, waiters and their concierge as
enemies of mankind, and otherwise behave like
prudent, exemplary, and clever gentlemen. I
know one man who is reported to have paid
nothing for exchange during our whole finan
cial crisis. He borrows of his friends here in
gold and means to pay them in paper when he
returns yvith them to the States.
The secessionists of Paris are all first fami
lies, 040 they are voluble, lazy, and seedy.
They borrow money, toss it away, drink and
swear much, present their watches and rings
to their aunts, on Ate Mont de Piete, but, curi
ously enough, have no consuming ardor to
immolate themselves upon the altar of their
"bleeding country." There are "exempts"
from the South as well as from the North, and
they add to the small-heartedness of the latter
class a volume of prodigality and braggadocio.
A number of Ameritens live in my neighbor
hood and I may as well enlighten you upon
the general method of snoring and dieting as
adopted by us.
Imagine the first person, therefore, return
ing from a half franc breakfast at the nearest
"creamery." A creamery is a cookshop, and
he has had a bowl of coffee, an abundance of
_Ma tees and several EIDOODO.
Said creamery may -- - - firtare erne-ne
street leading direct from the Pont des Arts, or
the bridge by the Louvre palace to the palace
of the Luxembourg. Now, a very old street
called the Rae Jacob, leaves the Rue de Seine
at right angle r s, running parallel with the
river. His full of wine shops, crockery shops,
book shops, and Cariosity shops of all degrees.
At the upper windows you will see long clay
pipes protruding, with the frizzly heads of stu
dents behind them, and possibly the laughing
face of a grisette in the background. In the
street will be other students, some German, some
English, some Yankees, and all are turning
from the "creameries," or perhaps from a bad
at the jardin de hiver, or mayhap from an early
clinic at the medical school. The first person
lives at the rummiest, grummiest house of all
—a deep pile of white plaster, with roofs so
steep that it is a wonder how the ghoulish
dormer windows do not slip off. He turns into
a black archway, at one side of which lies a
little cell, with the word "Concierge" painted
over its window. The concierge sits within—
a Jacohitish old fellow, with coal-black hair,
whose business it is to give you the key and
see nothing. The individual addresses you in
so classic French that you cannot comprehend
him, though you exchange a bon jaur and a bon
soir twice a day, as gravely as if you were
Rabbis. Veil! before you ascend the stairs
you stop to see the garden. It is brimming
with green things, and the four walls enclo
sing it are manifolded with barred windows,
at some of which sit petite lasses sewing, or
taking cafe, or singing delightfully unintelli
gible ballads. The stairs themselves are of
marble, discolored by years and worn by many
feet—the halls are of brick tiles, as smooth as
agate—and the floors are of wood, ingeniously
laid, and waxed confoundedly. me first per
son enters his apartment. It is in keeping with
the oddness of the rest of the house, and there
are great beams crossing the ceilings, which
the cheerful wall-paper cannot hide or subdue.
Neither can the soft curtains flowing from bra
zen rods make less apparent the hugeness of the
-window-frames and the deepness of the sills;
for there are massive chairs—delicately tapes
tried it is true, hut frowning and bow-backed—
wherein the reddest of the republicans might
have crouched to sleep With his bloody cock
ade touching the stone mantel, and grey old
mirrors, which will be gray in spite of their
gilding, and so many recesses that were a
ghost to pop out of each, you would say bon
jour for very consistency.
The first person has a bed, and his friend
has a bed also—each has a wash-room and
each a clothes-press. There are so many mat
tresses upon the rich bedstead that the Irish
man's idea of persons Sleeping in tiers becomes
very rational, and so little water in the ap
proach-to-a-pitcher that you look at the spruce
bell rope forebodingly. Of course there are
empty wine and beer bottles upon the first
person's table, and there is a clock so deli
cately joined that it may break if you look at
it. Beside the clock are two candles standing
up like piles of francs in the most symmetrical
of sticks, and as I come to said candles I grow
livid; for the concierge puts a fresh one at 'me
every morning, as if to 4201199 a monstrous
statement he intends to submit, of: apart
ments, 30 francs a month; service, 10 francs;
candles, 50 francs. I know that all this age
and splendor cannot be afforded for forty francs
a month, and therefore, as I say, I am terrified
by those candles, and last night burnt myself.
How does the first person live? Briefly, as
he likes. The gene d'armee under my window
Soto nothing; t h e co ncierge would let me mur
der anybody here ; for he is too polite to lis
ten, and no concierge that ever was known, saw
anything. If, therefore. I ask the Priest, or
my French master, or Douglass, my "first
family" acquaintance, or anybody, to come to
see me, the concierge beholds him not, nor any
other man, nor person. In fact, lam monarch
here: I own the place for a stated term and
can put out the proprietor when I like. I sleep
like a top. I write for the papers—l dine in
PRICE TWO CENTS.
the Paleis Royale. The latter is a humming
plane and it Wail formerly a royal palace.
Prince Napoleon lives at one end of it—l dine
at the other end. I dine at Tissot Ficre's at five
o'clock, and for two francs I am entitled to a
_plate of soup, fish, three plates of meat or
game, pastry, dessert, and a half bottle of
wine. Where in America can a man make
such a dinner for forty cents? Afterward, I
smoke a cigar in the NAOS Royale square,
under the shade trees, hearing the Imperial
band, and paying two sous for my chair.
The question will occur among your Harris-.
burg readers, "What does the first person bear
about America ?" My large acquaintance
with French language and literature compels
me to answer this interrogatory in brief. At
first our cause was popular with the people
and unpopular with all titled folk and impe
rialists of whatever name. But our ill success,
our captiousness, and the unity and velar of
the South, have lost us the eyrapathy even of
the mass. I do not candidly think, from
walks, talks and readings, that any but the
radicals or extreme philanthropists adhere to
the North. Men like Victor Hugo, the social
ists and followers of all erratic creeds are with
us because they hate slavery. You cannot tell
bow deeply the anti-nigger principle is im
planted in the hearts of the European million..
Mrs. Stowe hit the South a greater blow than
any of our warriors has administered, when
she charged types and the River Side Press
upon it. Of course we, who know, have our
own opinion about the book ; but those who
don't know, read, swallow and swear it. All
the government organs of Paris sneer at Le
Nord and cheer Le Sud; but as we need not
greatly concern ourselves about their opin
ions, we may lament their lack of taste and go
News has just arrived of the capture of
Puebla by General Forey's army, but the
French grumble about it as a thing which
ought to have happened six months ago, and it
excites no rapture in any quarter. The Mex
ican invasion is very unpopular here, and it is
only slightly consolatory to the French to be
lieve that their Master means it to anticipate
some huge design upon the United States, or
any part of it. The french, in fact, seem in.
disposed at present to applaud anything which
the Third of the Napoleons has in hand.
They have thrown him, as you know, in cer
tain late elections, and, emboldened by their
success, are pressing for further concessions.
There is only one law here in reality—that of
the secretive hero of the coup d'etat, and the
press is gagged without ceremony, the revenue
used es he pleases, and in all other respects,
th e Emperor proves himself a dutiful nephow-
I read a funny placard to-day, illustrative of
the revival of the old Republican sentiments.
In some of the districts of Paris, you must
know, the Emperor's candidates so nearly
equalled the opposition in votes received that
neW' elections have been ordered. A host of
new names have been thus elicited, and a
prominent candidate announces among other
items of his platfortro the abolition of the
death penalty and of imprisonment for debt;
free schools to which the children of all shall
be compelled to go ; no imposts, but the rais
ing of a sum by taxation of eighty millions of
francs to pay all State expenses; the fusion of
religions ; no Sunday work, but all employees
to be paid as if they labored, with other run

The Emperor is shrewder, perhaps, than any
master France ever had. A: couple of nights
ago I was walking up the Rue Rivoli—a grand,
broad street, straight as a shaft, opened a few
years ago at vast expense—when 1 came upon
the motley Rue Antoine, in the heart of which
stands the Place de la Bastille, with the huge
column to the martyre of '4B in its centre.—
Standing on the site of the old dungeon, I
looked up the broad Boulevard Beaumarchais,
and comprehended at a glance the motive of
Napoleon in so enriching Paris. Here in the
Faith( urg Antoine, among its dense populace
of artisans, have originated those mighty revo
lutions, which twice overturned the throne.
Hence poured the fierce mobs upon the Hotel
de Ville; here in '43 they erected their strong
barricade; here the good Archbishop fell,
pleading the gospel of peace ; and here, to-day,
exists the spirit
. of revolution, as wild, high
and frenzied as ever before. Hare these new
avenues no other design than that of beautify
ing the city. Behold ! the Rue Rivoli in front,
the Boulevard Beaumarchais on the right, the
double Boulevard Baurdon and Counthescarpe
on the left. Each of these is a grand military
road, capable of being swept by cannon, and
the Place de la Bastille can be flanked by whole
armies. No rabble shall hereafter menace the
Touilleries or the Louvre; no barricade shall
defy the military, fighting at disadvantage in
the sinuous lanes. Napoleon has mastered the
position. He is building deep and strong the ,
foundations of his throne, and he hopes to
make it the secure seat of his dynasty, long
after his own body shall have crumbled. Nev
ertheless, it does not seem written in the fates
that the child of Eugenie shall peaceably suc
ceed to power. I doubt whether any pious
Abraham would lend the youth a franc upon
his prospects. There shall come another revo
lutl.ol4 for this beautiful country—for these
brave, chivalrous and free-thoughted people ;
not a revolution of bayonets and axes, which
shall expend itself in romance, forget its high
purpose for the love of glory, and oe diverted
by an adventurer to far conquests at the loss
of the equality it had won ; the revolution that
shall make France foremost must he rational,
resolute and merciful. Here in the heart of
Eerope the enthusiast sees a new republic,
what: , v i ctor i es a l la n t e , , . of the arts, sconce
and virtue—firm to uphold themselves, too just
to be aggressive, too earnest to be erratic.—
The land that joined cause with American free
dom, and to which may be ascribed half the
privileges of all Euroge, must Dot herself be
the footstool of any despot. There shall be
another coup cr etat—in hope of which time I
subscribe myself BOUT DE LA VILLE.
IVg4l. STATE CONSTITUTIONS SAY—LET THEN
BE SEEN TO.—The following isian extract from
the State Coxistitution of Massachusetts:
“The people of this Commonwealth have
the sole and exclusive right of governing them
selves, as a free, sovereign and independent
State, and do, and forever shall, exercise and
enjoy every power, jurisdiction and right,
which is not, or may not hereafter be, by
them expressly delegated to the Malted etates.”
Here is a tolerably plain • end strong asser
tion of the doctrine of State rights and State
sovereignty. According to the modern advo
cates of centralization, such language is trea
sonable. Will they not call for the suppression
of the Massachusetts Constitution?
The following pointed extract from the
State Constitution of Vermont, we commend
to those who justify arbitrary arrests of civil
lass in this and other loyal States by military
au thority, and the infliction of pains and
penalties under sentence by military commis:

THE ORIGINAL COPPERHEAD
BEN. F. WADE, OF 01110-HE JUSTIFIES
THE RIGHT OF SECESSION-HE IN THE
ADVOCATE OF DISSOLUTION.
In the Congressional Globe, of the third ses
sion of the T.hirtyfourth Congress, page 25,
will be found a speech delivered in the United
States Senate by the ion. Benjamin F. Wade,
of Ohio, the great leader of the Republican
party in that State. lle said:
"But Southern gentlemen stand here, and,
in almost all their speeches, speak of the die.
solution of the Union as an element of every
argument, as though it were a peculiar conde
scension on their part that they permitted the
Union to stand at all. If they do not feel in
terested in upholding this Union—if it really
trenches on their rights—if it endangers their
Institutions to such an extent that they can
not feel secure under it—if their interests are
violently assailed by means of this Union—l
am not one of those who expect that they will
long continue under it. lam not one of those
who would ask them to continue in iluelt
Union. It would be doing violence to the
platform of the party to which I belong. We
have adopted the old Declaration of Independ
ence as the basis of our political movement,
which declares that any people, when their
Government ceases to protect their rights,
when it is so subverted from the true purposes
of government as to oppress them, have the
right to recur to fundamental principlets, and,
if need be, to destroy the government under
which they live, and to erect on its ruins an
other, more conducive to their welfare. I hold
that they have this right.. I will not blame
any people for exercising it, whenever the?
think the contingency has come. I certainly
shall be the advocate of that same doctrine
whenever I find that the principles of this
government have become so oppressive to the
section to which I belong that a free people
ought no longer to endure it. You will not
then find me backward in being the advocate
of disunion ; but that contingency never having
come, I have never yet opened my mouth in
opposition to the Union. I have never enter
tained a thought disloyal to this Union. But
I say, for Heaven's sake, act, not talk. lam
tired of this eternal din of 'dissolution of the
Union' which is brought up on all occiteions, -
and thrust into our faces, as though we, of the
North, had some peculiar reasons for main
taining the Union, that the Southern States
have not. I hope the Union will continue for
ever. I believe it may continue forever. I
see nothing at present which I think should
dissolve it-; but if the gentlemen see it, I say
again that they have the same interest in
maintaining this Union, in tety judgment, that
we of the North have. If they think they have
not, be it so. You cannot forcibly hold men in
this Union ; for the attempt to do so, it seems
to me, would subvert the first principles of the
government under which we live "
If Wade is not the Prince of Copperheads,
who Ja? Wade told the to go out the
Union if theywanted to, and said it would be
against the principles of his party (the Repub
lican) to force them to stay in. The man who
utters such sentiments is an administration
leader, while Vallandigham, who has always
been for the Union, is now in exile.—Cincin
'WHAT IS IN THE ?TED Room.—The impor
tance of ventilating bed rooms is a fact
. is vitally interested in, and
which few properly appreciate. We copy the
following from an exchange, which shows the
injurious effects which must arise from ill-ven
tilated sleeping apartments:
If two persons are to occupy a bed-room
clueing a night, let them step upon weighing
scales as they retire, and then again in the
morning, and they will find their actual weight
at least a pound less in the morning. Fre
quently there will be a loss of two or more
pounds, and the average loss throughout the
year will be more than one pound. That is,
during the night there is a loss of a pound of
matter which has gone off from the bodies,
partly from the lungs, and partly through the
pores of the skin. The escaped material is
carbonic acid, and decayed animal matter, or
poisonous exhalations. This is diffused through
the air, in part ; and in part absorbed by the
bed clothes. If a single ounce of cotton or wool
be burned in a room it will so completely satu
rate the air with smoke, that one can hardly
breathe, though there can be but one ounce of
foreign matter in the air. If an ounce of cot
ton be burned every half hour during the night
the air will be kept continually saturated with
smoke, unless there be an open door or window
for it to escape. Now, the sixteen ounces of
smoke thus formed is far less poisonous than
the sixteen otineee of exhalations from the
lungs and bodies of the two persons who have
lost a pound in weight during the eight hours
of sleeping; for while the dry smoke is mainly
taken into the lungs, the damp odors from the
body are absorbed both into*the lungs and into
the pores of the whole body. Need more be
said to show the importance to have bed-rooms
well ventilated, and of thoroughly airing the
sheets MKT co verlids and msttressea in the
morning, before packing than up in the form
of a neatly made bed ?"
A JUDGE'S OPINION OF A JUDGE.—Judge
Comstock, of New York, wrote an excellent
letter to the Ohio Democratic State Conven
tion, wherein occurs the following noteworthy
take the liberty, on this occasion,
tioning in an especial manner the most humil
iating of all the circumstances connected with
the outrage inflicted %on constitutional rights
in the person of your fellow-citizen, Mr. Val
landigham. I refer to the base and servile
decision of a federal judge, in refusing to turn
the great writ of liberty to redrees that mon
strous wrong. I have never read a judicial
performance so abject and weak. If its au
thor t rao4paa the imp,eadzistent Whichi my
judgment, he deeervs,
he cannot escape that
indignant condemnation which is certain to
overtake him and all judges, who, in times
when liberty is in peril, shall prove false to
constitutional duty and their official aath,"
F. 0. J. Smith, of Maine, being threatead
with "arbitrary arrest" if he asserted the
right 2f free speech, said in a public speech:
"I desire here and now, in my place, to say
that if your Provost Marshal shall attempt
either here, or in any other similar assemblage,
to exercise a power of that extraordinary and
rash character, he may be assured that he will
fiod,in every commission that he accepts to do
such an at, his own'death warrant, and his
ready passport, also, to a merrited grave."
