Sleetoral Address from the Government Candi date?Liberty and Law Against "Perpetual Kevolntion." TELEGRAMS TO THE HEW YORK HERALD. Paris, April 14, 1873. M. de Kfimusat, candidate for the National Assembly, has issued an address to the Paris elec tors, declaring that "fet all times, and under all gov ernments, he has sought and loved liberty, but lib crty founded on law, not perpetual revolution." He promises to faithfully sustain the policy of President Thiers, and expresses an earnest desire for the consolidation of the Republic and the main tenance of universal suffrage. The Cabinet Position and Republican Party Profession. The Purls ComtitutUmnel replies to an article Which appeared in the RttpubUqut- Fraru;aise , setting forth the republican platform ol opposition to the Rgmusat candidacy, in the following terms:? The article lu llie R6publxque hVarvraine sets forth taat whatever may be the services rendered by Count de IWmusai the elections ior serious par ties, worthy ol the name, cannot be distributions of prizes. In the eyes of a pure republican the Qualities which distinguish the count? and which the journalist thus enumerates, "diplomatic ad dress. a liberal nnd randid spirit, an intelligent and ?well-advised moderation, sent iments of courteous ?conciliation"'? may be suillcient titles for a Minis ter of M. Thiers, but are not enough for the man wno aspires to the honor ol representing republican Paris. Such a delegate ought, at ?the present time, and before everything else, to Relate himsell the determined champion of ;the following four articles of faith:? "1. The integ rity or universal suffrage; 2. the raising the state ?f siege: 3. The amnesty; and 4. The dissolution or the Assembly. Xnd as there Is no probability that Count de K< musut will Inscribe these propositions at the bead 01 his profession of fuitn It Is super fluous lor mm to solicit the suffrages or the repub plcaus." such Is the conclusion or our contempo rary, anil we must admit that It Is perfectly logical. Hut It imposes on us a not less rigorous obligation Cud traces out our duty, which Is to support the tan whom the raolcals for so many and such cogent reasons utterly repudiate. Count de R6musat will, therelore, be the representative ol the conservative parties at the poll, and it is to him that all who do not wish to sec a name like Shat ol M. Valentin or M. Kane Issuing rrotn the ,rn ought to give th?ir suffrages. - ? Prince Napoleon's Appeal to the Cor nicans.

Reporter? From your long experience, Colonel, among the Indiaus, may I ask your opinion of peace commissions? Colonel Chapm ak-?-I should not like to give an opinion loosely on the subject, for it is a somewhat intricate question, but I am aWare that the public look upon them, as a general rule, as failures. I wonld, however, say this with reference to the Peace Commission in question, that when they have evidence that the Indians are guilty of prevarication and acting with manifest ill faith, i think it dangerous policy for the Peace Commissioners to entrust their lives in the hands of such men. For my own part I have a far greater beliefin the honesty aua good conduct of, a wild Indian than of these semi-civilized Indians, for to quote Warren Hastings, "they have all the vices of the whites with none of their virtues." Reporter ? You have fought against the Indians, I believe, colonel ? Colon kl ? Y es, in 18.55 I commanded a battalion ef 500 men of the First. Oregon Volunteers, and we fought against TUB ROUGE RIVER INDIANS, whose location was about a hundred miles from that of the Modocs of the present day. We had several battles and lost a considerable number of men. and the war terminated in the Spring or 1856, by the Indians putting themselves under the pro tection of United States troops. PEACE POLICY. Reporter? Wliat is your experience of the peace policy toward* the Indians ? Colonel Chapman? My opinion is that I would make all Indians aiders and abettors who have knowledge of preconcerted massacres similar to that at the lava beds. They would tlieu know that their lives are In the balance ror such acts of vile treachery, and I would treat them precisely as we treat white men in this respect, making them equally responsible, ir they knew thai, we enforced thfc rtyime we should have numerous informers when such acts as those we have just heard of are ih contemplation. MB. MEACIIAN, THE PEACE CAMMI88I0NBR. Reporter? I suppose you know Mr. Meacham, who was wounded ? Colonel Chapman? Yes, certainly. He was a resi dent of Eastern Oregon, and possessed considera ble property on the Hlue Mountains, and his family resided at Salem, Oregon, 011 the line of the Port land, Dallas and Salt Lake Railroad. He was an enthusiastic Methodist and a highly respected man. I knew General Canby at Portland up to last De cember, and I always esteemed him as a line fellow and a Christian gentleman. SKETCH OF BET. DR. TU071AS. Rev. Eleazar Thomas, murdered by the Modocs, was widely known through the Methodist Episco pal Church. His early ministry was exercised in the Genesee Conference, but he went years ago to California Conference. In 1S60 he was a delegate the from California to the General Conference which met in Buffalo. He served three quadrennial terms as editor of the Oaluunun christian Advocate, effi ciently discharging the responsible duties of his of fice. In 1868 the General Conference changed the grade of the Book Depository at. San Francisco, aud made It a branch or the Book Concern, electing Dr. Thomas editor. He served until 1872, when the grade was again changed to that or a depository, i and Dr. Thomas reporteu to the Bishop of the Call- I rornia Conference for a regular appointment, and was placed on the Pctaluma district. He was a man of spotless character, of great energy, of tin. j faltering courage and genuine devotion. Going at the call of the authorities to attempt the restora- . tion of peace, he fell beside Canby, dying in the dls- 1 charge of duty. He died well, aud his family should be remembered by the country Jie was temporarily serving. BRAZIL. Project of a Second Imperial Visit to Europe?

Accounts from Edgefield give the following of a Ku KJux rai< One night last week a party or Georgians, three or rour in aumber, visited the plantation or Mr. Frank sharpton, living in the Dark Corner, in searcn or certain negro laborers who had left them. Not finding the negroes for whom they sourfht, they turned in aud whipped all the blacks on Mr. Slmrpton's place, and upon leav ing told them they would return on Tuesday night. This they did? the party inereased by one or two? and found the negroes armed ami ready for the fray. The latter fired promptly, killing a man named Fobb and seriously wounding another of the sum* name. About thirty shets were fired by both parties.

THE HERALD'S TRIUMPH IN JOURNALISM, rProm the Kvsnsvtiie (Ind.)

I? is. we believe, the largest paper ever issued In this coun try. The advertisements alone will probably amount to at least $2fi,ooo. while the number of copies .ssued is 150,000. The Qibilo verr properly and complacently comments on thin triumph, and makcaseme suctions in connection therewith which are worthy the attention of ?he readers of the Journal. It assumes that "a people who advertise and read are a people whose success in lile la assured Their experience, tact and intelligence teach them to appreciate independence, zeal and enterprise in journalism and lei*l them to patronize such a newspaper as meets their Ideas in these qualifica tions.'1 ft rightly claims i hat a wide awake, inde pendent and enterprising newspaper is tho busi uoss barometar of the city in which it is published. Its columns readily show woen the people are prosperous and when busings is brisk. The exception to this rule is where a paper is crowded with advertisements 01 sheritrs sales, which is In dicative 01 bankruptcy rather than prosperity. Hut a great many business men overlook t he Im | portance of this fact. They tall to see that strangers will invariably estimate the commercial

activity and prosperity of a city by the character and general appearance of the papers published in it. No one can glance at a copy of the flKHAi.n, to which we have alluded, without being impressed at once with the magnitude and prosperity of the city in which it is published. They must feel that it could not be pub lished in any other than the greatest city 011 the Continent, on the other hand, let them get. no!d of an insignificant sheet, containing neither news nor advertisements, and they at once cou? elude that the city it represents is equally barren of enterprise and commercial activity. If they And only nerc and there advertisements of wholesale houses In the columns of the paper they will most certainly conclude that, as a place to buy goods, the city where it is published doesn't amount to much. This conclusion is inevitable. Drummers, of coarse, can control a certain amount of trade,' but their work Is almost doubled and their success diminished hall where the houses they represent persistently ignore or neglect to avail themselves of the advertising advantages offered by the newspapers circulating within the range of tnelr custom. In addition to the direct benefits which mer chants derive from an insertion of their advertise ments or bnsluess cards in their city papers, there Is a reflex advantage which many ef them do not think ol. if the paper is conducted by shrewd Journalists, who judiciously apply the proceeds of their advertising columns to Improving the other department* of the paper, and thereby increasing Its circulation and Influence, the busi ness men are proportionately benefited. Hor 8t rangers cannot resist the Im pression that a wide awake, newsy paper represents wide awake, liberal merchants and manufacturers, with whom It will oe both profita ble aad pleasurable to trade. The consequence Is they will make their arrangements to test the soundness of their Inferences, and when the dram mer presents himself he will experience no diiii cnlty and waste no time in securing their orders. The Uku ald's success ought to stimulate every paper In the country to put forth strong efforts to rank every competitor in its immediate locality. [From the Richmond Uulite, Aorll 14.] The Nkw York Hkrald of April n contained 120 columns, seven ty-elght of which were advertise ments, at the prices it receives lor advertising, I amounting to about thirty thousand dollars; com- , position, about one million ems, $i>,ooo for setting the type; 5,024 pounds of metal used in stereotyping. The Hkrald gives all the news of the world, and we expect to hear of Mr. lienuett starting one of his thousand reporters to discover a new planet above or below, just to keep up enterprise. I Prom the Kansas City (Mo.) Times, April 11. ] The New York Hkkaj.d on Sunday last contained seventy-eight columns or advertisements and forty two of general reading marter. The paper, tor the first time in its history, issued a quintuple sheet? j twenty pages? and was the largest ever published in this country. [From the Benncttsvilie (8.0.) Times, April U.) The Nkw York Hkkald or the 6th instant ap peared in quintuple lorrn, containing one hundred and twenty columns, or which seventy-eight were devoted to advertisements and forty two to news and general intelligence. ' This is an event unprecedented in the ! history of Journalism, and shows conclusively that the Hrrai.d is the business barometer of New York and of the country at large. Its columns show when business Is brisk and people prosperous. I he Hkkai.d is printed on Ave Hoe rotary eight and ten cylinder presses and two Bullock per fccting presses, being seven presses in all, and each day's edition Is Issued at the rate or 1,000 sheets per minute, taking two hours and a hair to ifsue 100,000 papers. Day and night the tel egraph Is at work bringing despatches rrom all quarters or the globe; corps or correspondents, reporters and editors are busy obtaining news, putting It into shape or commenting upon It; the proor reader* are at their post pursuing their ' onerous and wearying task; stereotypes, press men and assistants are awaiting the instant when their services will be brought into requisition, for there can be no delay, no pause, no rest until the daily paper is off the press and ready to go into the hands ol Its readers. And all this to be done each day. To us, unsophisticated country people, 1 all this sounds like a story In the "Arabian Nights Entertainment." Yet it is true. Verily, the Hkrald Is a great paper.

M. on March :il, we steered west by north with two degrees westerly devia tion ; I think that was the course but am uot cer tain; the exact course would be west seven degrees sontli, and making seven miles thft dis tance, at noon, to Sambro, and to the point where she struck would be about the same ; 1 account lor the fact that the ship made 170 miles in fourteen hours and a quarter while her log showed a maximum rate of 11 knots, solely by the current; tl*e number ol the ship's crew, including oillccrs and aie it, was 140; I believe there were HI I passen gers all told, ol whom 35 were cabin ; about 250 of of these came aboard at (^ueenstown; of the ?67 persons on board 1 think 422 were saved; 1 hold a certitleate of competency as extra master, iso. 22,210; 1 believe It is on board of the ship; we intended to get provisions at llalirax, but did not come here for that purpose ; besides the two lookout men and the quartermaster there were abonl fifteen men In the watch wheu the ship struck; they must have been at work washing the dccks, Ac. ; 1 believe the statement of yuar i ter-inaster Thomas, that he cautionud the gecoud ofllcer, to be false; no ofllcer would allow such a breach of discipline ; I made allowance for the current, but not enough; I sup posed that the heavy westerly winds that prevailed daring the wluter would have neutralized the westerly set; I expected at daybreak to have had the land east ot Halifax in sight. This ended the testimony, and the court was ad journed until Krtday at three o'clock P. M.. when judgment will be given. A VESSEL STRUCK BY LIGHTNING. Halifax, n. S., April 13, 1873.
