Paris Versus Franc*.
The Menniny of the Great Revolution
its the Freneh Chpital —The Great
Fight Between City and Country.
j From ths London Economist, April I.]
We shewed last week how wide the
chasm between the great cities of France
and the country district* has -grown; and
this week we have evidence of the foil con
sciousness ot the chasm in the explicit pro
fession ef faith published by the revolution
ary party in Paris, which declares for the
independence and federation of the great
communes of France, and for securing for
the great cities some guarantee of sufficient
influence over the central authority, "what
ever that may be," in order to prevent their
being swamped, as they have hitherto been
liable to beswamped, in the representatives
sent up by the count! y districts. This most
dangerous revolutionary proposal is, in
some sense no doubt, aperoesi* of the poli
cy of the Imperial government, resting as
itdid on the ignorance and conservatism of
the rural population, found iuelfcompelled
to readjust the electoral arronodissements,
so as t# neutralize as much as possible the
influence of the great towus. Wc often had
occaeion, while the Emperor still reigned,
to point out, as the late Paradol
pointed out in his last very instuctive book,
tbat the flrst requisite of e proper reform
hill for France would be such n readjust
ment of the electoral districts as should
give the great citie* of France their fair
influence ia the National Assembly. But
this the Emperor, who knew well tbat he
reigned chiefly by virtue of the confidene
which the timid and ignorant peasantry
reposed in him, would never grant; and
now we see the terrible recoil of the policy
of repression in this revolutionary demand
tbat France shall be virtually governed by
the great cities—for that is really what the
new programme mean*—and the rural dis
tricts kept down by the superior intelligence,
- force and wealth of the municipal centres.
This is the political ideal after which tha
Parisian revolution declares itself to be an
aspirant. That Lyons and Marseilles, and
perhaps St Etienne and Toulouse, moreor
less share the same views, the recent dis
turbances there seem to ndicqte. Should
Paris succeed in defying the central power
and establish herself as an independent
commune we may be quite sure that such
an example given by the capital will soon
be followed by others of the great cities,
which have for generation back followed
more or lees closely in the wake of Paris.
And the probable consequence will be the
disintegration of the State, and a social war
of eity against country. It is n frightful
danger, and one the magnitude of which
has really grown with Ihe recent attempt*
at a remedy. Louis Napoleon saw the ex
teat of the danger in 1848, and tried to reme
dy it by drawing from the country an ar
my wbicb kept down the capital and the
other great towns ; but then, as we have
seen, he had to prop up his policy by the
political expedient of attenuating the politi
cal strength of the greater municipalities,
which he effected, after a fashion well un
derstood in political England, by throw
ing great marginal districts of agricultural
population into the "circumscriptions" of
the more democratic citie*. But all this
counterbalancing of the great cities only
piqued their vanity and excited their vin
dictive feelings the more, tiil at last we see
tbat the quarrel of town versus country it
like enough to necome an open feud.
And perhaps the worst feature of this
new revolutionary cry is, that while it is a
very exciting cry, a cry which has a very
vivid meaning both for town and country,
it does not represent anything of definite
and intelligible policy for the future. The
most dangerous of all social quarrals are
those which begin before any intellectual
or moral issue is really reached—quarrels
of local jealousy which represent passions
y and hypothetical interests rather than dis
tinct policies and tangible interests. We
knew pretty fairly the vague ideas wbicb
are fermenting in the great French cities;
we know that there is a very widespread
distrust of the rich, and a very strong dis
position to insist on government by the
poor; we know that there is a vague idea
that wealth is unfairly distributed, and that
in some fashion or other guarantees should
be taken for it* more equal distribution in
ftiture; we know that there is a violent dis
trust amon; the ouvriers ot the principle
of competition, and a vague belief that by
building up vast labor associationsou what
they call the principle of solidarite they
could insure a fairer division of the rewards
of labore further, we know that there is an
intense dislike to the strong proprietary in
dividualism and the torpid life of the rural
district*, and a vast belief in the sacredness
of political ebullitionaofall sort*, —in short,
(B im manse love of excitement, snd a
strong disposition to novelties of social and
political experiment. AH these tendencies
are deeply rooted in the fluctuating popu
lations of the great cities of France; but
there is not one of them which really rep
resenti a distincy>rineiple or a practicable
political plan. The rural districts rather
believe iq wealth and rank, and cortainly ,
fX -j +t
prefer to be governed by the rich and not
by the poor. But though the apparent ten
dency of n greater part of the city nnsses
to distrust wealth and prefer men of their
own order makesa social war* real danger,
yet it in quiet obvioua that this it not an
ittue on which a practical discussion it pos
sible. Kvcn the city poor trill not raftis*
influential leader* front among*! the pro
fessional classes if they can get them; and
even the country peasant* might chooteto
elect an able and typical man ofthrirown
clai* if they could find one This is just the
tort of division of feeling which oau> #* bit
terness without even remitting of a clear
settlement. And to too of the semi-corn
munittic notion* of the nntair distribution
of wealth. No one ha* ever formulated
them into a practical experiment, except
indeed in the propotal to establish govern
ment workshop* for the unemployed a
most dangerous prop*Mal, unle** the work
were harder and the pay much le than
that of any private workshop*, in which
ca#c the plan would bo rqj cted by the so
eialist* themselves. A* for "solidartst
who want to get rid of eompctitiou and
"organise" labor on a great scale, no prac
ticable plan has ever been proposed, except
co-operative schemes, which are very good
in their wey, because the.y it* checked
and stimulated by external competition,
without which they would become mere
vest monopolies. Then again the jeneral
belief in political excitement, experiment,
and change, which mark* the cities and
which is the horror of the conservative lan
ded peasantry of the country, suggests no
issue or principle capable o! reel discussion,
it is a mere vague tendency which he* its
influence of course in exciting enthusiasm
in the cities, and dread in the rural popula
tions, but it is Incapable of formulation, in

Tliis, then, seem* to us to be the great
peril of the situation—that the cities have
got a rustless, a feverish, a dangerous, an
empirical life of their own, to which they
ate attached, and the influence ef which, io
some form or other, they desire to see pro-'
pegated through France; while the coun
try people, ignorant, slow, conservative,;
and attached to their ignorant, slow, conser- j
vntive ideas, feci a complete horror of the
views and feelings which agitate the cities
and desire nothing so much as to be pro
tected flrorn their influence. There, as we
have said, is no political issue—nothing
capable of being fought out definitely, like
the demand for a reform bill, or for free
trade, or even far a republic. All theec
clear constitutional issue* tr ight be decided
by political agitation. But in France we,
have hoetile but on one side at least, vague I
ideas threatening an order of society to!
which U\g other side is attached, but with- J
out even a trace of sufficient deflniteaees toj
make it cleai what order of society these
idealists would substitute for it, Sueh hos
tility as this is the mere dangerous, just
because it is vague, and any distinct com
parison of ideas on the subject is impossi- j
ble. It is more like a quarrel between two
different ages of the world—between a feu-!
dal and a lommercial period for instance,
as to which should impose its yoke on the :
other—than a contest between two section* j
of the same people, educated under the,
same influences, and only subject to a cer
tain divergency of taste and principle I
The only conceivable remedy for it i* *

Dvnth of IhrT'tu Klan Flcpkanta.
The rplcndiil sjieiuin n* of ele
phants, uinter the names of Castor and
Pollux, of Kuropenn rt nown, fell vie
j lims to the tnigbttiest of nil cottijuer- j
' or#- hungrr. The Parisians, though
uot lio fastidious to feed on rats, were
compelled by it t* acrilicc their giant
JKMS, Their death was tragic. Pol

ball, lirteeti centimetre* long, uf cviin* j
drieal eliipe, with conic end, which
oil its tee. point bud a capsule fasten
! -d coituining eighty grunttti- of fine j
| powder, winging two Ituudreil and
eighty gramme A charge of eight
gramma of powder is required to throw [
the projectile. The shot, fired frotu
ten meters' distance, pierced the right j
shoulder, shattered the first rib, and;
explobii within the bowel*. After
tlu destructive explosion the elephant
rested iti an upright jv>stttot. then j
made tome motions, but did not at*
i tempt to rend his shackles. It la*ted j
some minute* until the internal hem
orrhage choked the aniiunl. Then he ,
fell, his agony ln*;ing tome time.
Four large tubs wore filled with
. blood, and yet some little time elapsed
I before he ceased to breathe. The
next day it wrsts Castor's turn, t.ho was i
killed by Milne Kdward* by tin-uus of j
a bunting carbine, llit on the right
temple, the elephant went down on his !
knei* with a moaning cry. As he

tine Susceptibility.
The uimt ruiniauu exhibition uf the i
1 influence of mu-ic n animals is jer* 1
baps that witnctscii in circuses nnd
; other equestrian entertainments, where ,
the horse is cfl'cctcd tn a lively and
exhilarating manner by the perform
nuce of the band—often waltzing and
prancing, and keeping perfect time 1
with the music.
Dogs are rffi-cted by n.usic, but it is 1
j difficult to determine whether agrees 1
blv or < tberwiae. Many uaturali*ts
bdieve it to be disagreeable to the tu,
an opinion which is strongly support- ;
oil by the fact that if left to their lib- j
arty, they generally take llight with |
howls its soon as the music reaches
tlu-ir cars. They have been known to
ilte when compelled to beat music for '
: a considerable time. Other quadru
ped*, and also owls, have been known
to die from the effect of ntu*ic.
Cats arc *aid to mew loudly ou
bearing the sound of instruments, but
nrc more seldom and lews |<ainfullv af
fected than dog*. On the other band.
I it i well known that many kinds of
bird* are affected in n yery agreeable
manner, often approaching as near as
possible the instrument or persous nnd
remaining as long as the music contin
ues, and then Happing their wings, as
we should clap our hands in approha-
I tion of the performance.
Mnuy of the wild animals arc said
to be fond of and even charmed by
music ; the hunter* of th" Tyrol ami
some part* of Germany often entice
*taga bv sinking, nnd the female deer
by playing the flute. Beaver* nnd
ruts have l<een taught to dance the
rope, keeping time to the music.
Among reptiles the lizard shows
|*ci liaj s the most remarkable suscepti
silitv to musical inllueuccs; lying iirat
on bis barit, ami then on his side, and
anon on his belly, as if desiring to ex
j pose every part of his body to the cf*
i feet of the sonorous fluid which i* so
: delightful to him. Appear* to be
very refined in his tuslc, soft voices
ami planlirc airs being bis favorite,
while hoarse singing ami noisy music
disgust hiin.
Among the insects, spiders nre found
to be very fond of Music. As soon a#
the Sounds reach them, thev decend
along their web to the point nearest to
, that from which the music originates,
ami there remain motionless n* long as
,1 it continues. Prisoners sometimes
tame them by singing or whistling,
! >t ul make companions of them.
But pcrlutjui the most remarkable
instance of toe influence of music on
animals incurred at a menagerie in
Paris, a few years ago, when u concert
i was given, nnd two elephants were
among the auditors.—Tlio orchestra
being placed out of their sight, they
could not (terccivo whence the harmo
ny came. The first sensation was that
ui' surprise, nt one moment tliey gazed
eagerly nt the spectator*; the next
they ran at their keeper to carts*
him, aud seemed to inquire whut these
strange sound* meant: but, at length
seeing that nothing was amiss, they
gave themselves up to the impression
which the music communicated,
hatch new tune seemed to produce a
change of feeling, causing their ges
tures and cries to nssumc an expression
iu accordance with it. But it tvas
still more rcmurkublc that after a
! pi see had produced an agreeable ef-
I feet u|xtn them, if it was incorroclly
played, they would remain cold and
( unmoved. "
