Europea* ( arrrapoadKHrr. Paris, March 21,1st 17. To the Editor of the Press: Vour correspondent is on tlie ground, ready to furnish items from the Exposition Univer sello, but the most that can be said of this stupendous affair, at present, is that it is a great mass of confusion and incompleteness. Nothing is ready and, indeed, the prospect is that very little will be finished by the first of April. Yet announcement has been made that a grand opening will take place on that date. \\ hat this grand affair is to consist of is as yet unknown, though many conjectures are afloat. The Exposition buildings are located, as ev erybody knows by this time, in the Champs dellurs—Field of Mars. [This park is situat ed in the southeastern portion of Paris, not far from the old ilourbou Palace, immediate ly in trout ot the Military Academy and ex tending to the river Seine. It is a very large field and lias previously been used as a parade ground for the troops of the Emperor. The principal building occupies the centre of the field and is a large elliptical edifice, or rather a series ol concentric elliptical galleries, one story high and lighted by means of glass roofs. The remainder of the ground is laid out for gardens and smaller houses of various kinds, and divided by plots among the various na l ions to he represented in the Exhibition.— France takes nearly half the whole territory tor herself and colonies, giving to other coun tries the proportion that it is supposed they will need or will use, •s" »>uch by way of preface, but furlber tluu this your correspondent does not w ish to write until things assume a better defined shape. Much has been written about what this mammoth exhibition will be, but Uie larger part was written ou supposition, and as so great a portion is to be wholly remodel led, your corrospondeut prefers to delay till lie can give what he is sure will be correct. Meanwhile, asliort account of a trip through Ireland and experiences among the Fenians may not he uninteresting. The published ru ]>orts and ui patches from the “scat of war” bear a most striking resemblance to the cor respondence published in American journals at the breaking out of the late war. We all remember at that time how every molehill was distorted to the size of a mountain, how the “overwhelming forces of the enemy” were spoken of on both sides in regard to the same light, lw*w the courage and skill of the officers and bravery of the troops were lauded, and how each skirmish, which a little later would hardly be noticed, was magnified iuto a“terri ble battle.” Of exactly the same character arc the Fenian reports. To one who has re cently come from the very midst of the de monstrations, the accounts published in the English newspapers and the telegrams sent to America seem little else than ludicrous. Not that the Fenian movement is not worthy of looking after; their intentions doubtless are far from pleasant to England, but their or ganization is so loose, their mode of wa;tare so sublimely unmilitary that the excitement caused thereby is truly funny. The greater part of Ireland is nnder mar lial law, and so closely are the suspected Fe nians watched by Uer Majesty’s soldiers, who are scattered everywhere about, that the Fe nians must be much more wise than your cor res|K>ndent gives them credit for to cause a revolution that shall accomplish anything per manent. Their hatred ol their present gov ernment is intense, to be sure, and they will cause much annoyance by damaging property, shooting policeme#, throwing trains from the track, and perpetrating many kindred acts which require the work of hut two or three meu, hut there never yet has been an army of two thousand Fenians collected in any one place in Ireland, as has been reported, and the probability is very strong that the day when there will be that number gathered for war on the soil of Erin will not be witness! d by the present generation. Beyond a doubt there is great sympathy with the movement among the Irish, more especially in tlic Southern and Roman Catho lic iiortion of the island. But where will their arms or supplies come from? From America, some may say. It might be practi cable—or possible—to bring arms from there, hut hardly supplies and it would be au exceed ingly difficult matter to land arms. Further, the population of Ireland is scattered in small communities, with few exceptions, where every one knows every other, liis ancestry, business and prospects, and an absent one is quickly missed. These villages and towns are guarded by a vigilant and strong police, now aided by large bodies ot troops, so that to ar semble in considerable numbers is next to im possible. Bo! deluded laborer In America, consent not longer to pour your hard earned gains into this sieve on the specious repre sentations of those who are to he benefit!eil thereby, anil you, poor servant girl, east not your wages into this bottomless pit. It is al ready the opinion of your brothers and cous ins who live on the uOuld Sod” that it is a scheme on the part of some to enrich them selves at the expense of others, and that even if all officials were strictly honest, it would be impossible, in the lace of so many and great obstacles to accomplish the object for which the brotherhood wa3 professedly organized. A lew hints to those who intend visiting Paris during the Exposition and this letter will be finished. By all means avoid the ho tels if you can find accommodations else where, especially if you contemplate staying any length of time. Hotel prices are already extortionate and are to be raised as high as the guests will bear. A better way is to en gage lodgings before reaching the city,through some friend, the meals can bo purchased at numlierless restaurants at very moderate prices. Or if you have no acquaintance in Paris, stop at a hotel until yon can find a room elsewhere. There are several places in the city where such information is given gratis, and four American banks where one may he assisted in this manner and in various other ways. In regard to financial matters, a bill of ex change on some Parisian bank is the safest and most convenient method of transporting money for one who will go no farther on the continent. For those who contemplate travel ing oyer Europe a letter of credit is advisa ble. This can be procured In America at Boston or New York, and very likely in Port land. The best known American banks with branches and correspondence in Europe, are those of Bowles, Brevet, & Co., a Boston linn, and of John Munroe & Co., of New York. The Paris hanking houses of both firms are titled up with reading and sitting rooms, also branch post offices for the accom modation of Americans, and there you may nit et your friends or find by the register where they‘are stopping. A last word of advice, by no means the least important, is get as ex tensive a knowledge of the French language as possible. Alpheus. A Swakm of Commissioners.—A letter from Paris says the Americans are amusing themselves at the expense of the gubernatoi ial representatives sent to the Exposition. ‘ They say hardly a man lor the last three months lias conic to Paris without a commis sion from the governor of bis State to the Paris Exhibition. The larger part ol these commissioners will allow these certificates to remain in the bottom of their flunks, as no notice whatever is taken by the Paris authori ties of States individually. The last report is that a targe delegation of Ojlbeway Indians are coining as commissioners to the Exhibi tion.’’ ____ Brief Colloquy.—The Hartford Press gives the following as among the late election incidents in that city: “How do you feel now?” said a jubilant cop Iierhead to a leading republican on has way loiuo about 2 A. M. “Just as Lamms did, when ho was licked by dogs,” growled the person catechised, as he walked briskly on, < ,r,Ur fr““ "* t »p,lol. AN asuinoton, April 2 1 Sli7 To the Editor of the Frets: A CROWD OF MICAWBERS. There was a large number of this class to day and yesterday crowding the Senate corri dors. It was both curious and instructive to note their salient points and observe the duo operutuli. Yesterday meeting a Iriend,— one of the expectants—I essayed a tiiilu witti cism by remarking, "I leel Pharisaical this morning.” ‘‘flow so'.^ was the amused query. “Because Pve just been thanking God that I am not as these other men are.” There was a faint explosion of laughter in which your correspondent felt himself extin guished. But the Micawbers weie decidedly in the ascendant. As is doubtless well known the Senate in executive session sit with dosed doors. At the foot of the marble steps the door-keepers sit to keep the ignorant from filling up to the gallery. The lobby doors are dosed, and so the crowd gather at out the central door, and here the Senators are per sistently bored. Let us look at them a lew minutes. Yonder stands a tall, lean figure W( II known to all about Washington, and known to the country by a name not highly esteemed by those who admire honesty and respect con sistency. It is a figure which might havp been easily moulded to grace had the soul within not been so ugly. But it is now verging on awkwardness. There is an indif ference to dress which betokens a man too much preoccupied for such trifles. An indif ferent observer would set him down a seedy attorney, a second rate lobbyist. He is both, and also an indifferent statesman or rather politician running to seed—aud weeds at that. The head and face are remarkable. The first is high, long and narrow in shape; the second is a long oval, |iointcd to the chin; there's a sparse settlement ol sandy hair on the head with (wo little tufts by the ears standing lor whiskers; the skin Is sandy also in hue,reliev ed by a few heckles, while the washed out gray eyes are full of a quiet furtive craft.— This is Ihe face of a cold man of considerable intellectual foice, though it is easy to perceive it is not of a high order. The general cllccl is that ol cunning and craft rather than sub tlety. One sees tlist as a lawyer lie would lie a special plea.In, os a thinker an evader of truths rather than a seeker of them, as a pot itieian one greater at pulling wires than in defending principles or creating parties tor their support. There is an unpleasant re semblance to Wendell l*lii Hips; a sort of like ness from which nobleness of life and lolli uess of aim have been washed away. The man of whom I speakbelougs to a family of men no. torious lor their unsuccess—the Marplots ot the Kepubliran party. It is Montgomery Blair, in earnest conference with a foxy look ing, shabby old man, who is probably oue of the nameless elderly jackalls that prowl about the footsteps of power. In the midst ot a group of loud laughing rather coarse men,stands one who aimed high and succeeded hi reaching a low level indeed, lie is a man about fnty, apparently a stout,well knit ligure, well dressed too, with buckish hit tipped a little on oue side. His lace Is as ugly as Blair's but in a little different sense. That has an ;iir of breed jgg which makes it eudur able, but this one is loyslering, seusual, plucky and not at all scrupulous. Just now he Is in dulging in a hearty guffaw, which spreads wide open a cavernous mouth with a few broken black teeth, which does not add to the beauty of its possessor. This man looks ex actly like what he is—a driving, unscrupu lous politician—with considerable executive ability. This is Gen.Steadman. In mentioning the name one recognizes the titness of the portrait. Just now be is waiting to learn ot bis confirmation as Internal Kcvenue Colic tor in Louisiana, a position which lie obtains through John Sherman’s Influence. There are many others known and un known—a motley crowd. In the centerstand a group ol young men, possessing probably by tlieir position more power than the same number of men of tlieir age in the county They are the correspondents of the leading papers waiting tor news, and to be button holed by all sorts of bores—almost us much so as tho Senators themselves. There are eight or nine of them, representing the New York dailies, and their Boston, Chicago, Philadel phia, Baltimore, and Cincinnati contempora ries . Bodging around the corners or retired with in the recesses of the windows are to he seen I a half-dozen women, more or less well known as lobbyists. It is remarkable perhaps but none the less true, that the women are the most influential of lobby agents. There pass es a stately and quite voluptuous ligure, clothed in black silk, dressy, with a lace of high colors, black inviting eyes, heavy bands of luxurious hair. This woman Is credited with having engineered a bill lor the rebel of certain contractors for an iron clad. She has been at work a year. The amount was #76 000, and she lias doubtless got a large plum.— There are many strange stories told of these agents, docbtless as strange as tbtir faees, and those of the men aliout. But I am over running my space and so will close that por tion of my letter. IIOOTH S DIARY. To-day it id reported that the Judiciary Committee have been examining witnesses in relation to this mysterious document. The report ruus that they have testified to its be ing in the same condition as when it came into their p j .sesion. Lieut. Col.Conger, who took the hook from *he body of the assassin, lias not yet been brought here. From per sons intimately acquainted with him while hero last Summer,! learn that he never exam ined flie book, but placing it in bis own pocket after taking it from the person of the assas sin, brought it direct to the War Department here, aud handed it U) tho Secretary or Gen. Baker,—which I did not learn. There is considerable crowing among the conservatives over what they expect of Butler’s discomtituic in this matter. But the public will remem ber that he was cautious In his statement, only bringing out strongly the singular sup pression of this evidence at tiie trial. It may strike some of the suspicious as quite possible to obtain evidence or to aid treacherous mem ories, which will thus liud it conveuicut to remember the book was “spoliated” when they saw it. THE PARDON oF DESERTER'S. Another report is that rebutting testimony lias been introduced hi relation to the restora tion of lb;! deserters,which Gcn.Butler charges the President with doing lor the purpose of making Democratic votes. It is now declar ed that thy men were not restored until a month alter the election, so the pardoning was not done lor political purposes. Tom Florence, however, testified on Satur utday that lie obtained the pardon on the let ter ol the Democratic candidate, and received therefore $1,000 lor liis services. ITEMS. The Senate will be in session for about ten days. The city is still full of members and office holders. The Maine delegation seems to have returned home. Spectator. Military ve. CI»H Wo have heard a great deal of the “military despotisms" established m the South by the Reconstruction bill But singularly enough these “despotisms" have no terrors tor loyal men On the contrary, they hail them as the harbingers of their eivil and political salvation. The denunciations against them come only from the late ret>els in arms, who feel that the privilege of hunting down whit* and black Unionists is not likely to be continued, except under somewhat dangerous circumstances. It is h nee forth decreed that a loyal man in the .South shall count just as much as a rebel, and receive that protection at the bauds of the United States.—Jersey City Times Why Fires are Rare in HoNOLtar.—'Tlie Pacific Commercial Adcertiser, published at Honolulu, Hawaiian Islands, says: “The first fire for several months in this city occurred on Tuesday last. Though occurring in a thickly-peopled part of the town, it failed to spread to the neighboring tenaincuts, owing to the promptness of the fire companies, whose vigilance is commendable. Our exemption from tires is a subject of frequent remark; tnis, however, is owing mainly to the fact tout ngni, and fires are seldom resorted and because cook-houses are generally discon nected from dwellings. The risk from fire in Honolulu, though apparently greater than in other cities, when the conbustable nature of the bouses only is considered, is really less, on account of the infrequent use oi lights and fires.” 1 The Heimhlleua Furl) in North 4'orolioo. ITS OKtiANIZATION AND PLATPORM. Tlio New York Evening 1‘mt publishes a letter from a prominent Republican of North Carolina, a participant in the recent conven tion, giving an interesting account of the organization of the Republican party in that State. We reproduce a portion of it: lUr.HioH, X. C., March 29,1SM7. * tcT1,';'1;."1"',lial,i of North Carolina ,or»«mi/ed. Such an event mcmbersof u,e‘Ln,! a" .'”yal (explained in a previous leu l’..lia legislature while and fifty black “le ^cs e/,?v *^' tho Ooiiiiuons Mali in tins" , ity on * the^lh inst Fifty-live counties ol the state were represented, and all would have been but lor the scarcity of money and lark ol accommoda tions tor travellers in remote districts There were fifty colored delegates. They sat upon the Moor beside the whites, partici pated in the otlices, honors and debates, and achieved for their race the highest encomi ums front both triend and toe. I uni not stat ing one tiling beyond the simple truth. The white delegates were dentieuien of stamina—good old-fashioned farmers, a lew lawyers and a few professed politieans. In many respects it was upon their part a most remarkable assemblage. It was almost en tirely composed of middle-aged men, in the habit of indulging sober second-thought upon political matters, and exercising souuu judg ment in preference to prejudice or passion. Among the colored people there were many untutored sons of the plough—others were shopkeepers, mechanics, a lew preachers, and one or two i*oiitieiaus, it 1 may so speak of the few, who since the surrender have uevot cd then1 time to the happy consummation of all its troubles, upon the I as is of justice and equality. The majority were middle-aged, and a flw were young men. The blacks prevailed over the mnlatoes in number, and excelled them in oratory —but ail deported themselves wiili a courtesy which reflected honor on their good breeding. The convention was called to order, and Hon. Aft. Dockcray, the Union candidale tot governor last autumn, unanimously chosen temporary president. On taking ids scat, Mr. If. made an appropriate address, replete with patriotic sentiments, which wi re greeted with loud bursts ot applause. From this moment a new confidence seized the hearts of all; we were together—the former slave aud his master, equals and friends; both mingling their voices in approbation ot senti ments oi loyally, and vicing in tie- expression of lime, it was a glorious moment. Two gentlemen w ere appointed tempoiaiy secretaries—one colored and one white; and tlie convention proceeded t.. effect a perma msnt organization. v This was done, alter the delegates' names wore unrolled, by appointing a committee of eight—lour ot each race, who reported the officers as follows: Hon. A. 11. Jones, of Henderson, president; <>. P. Hadley, Colonel If. Heaton, on tlm part of the whites; J. 11. Harris, and J. U. Uoode, on the paitof the blacks, vice-presidents; and if. J. Meunenger, white, and J. F. O'Hara, colored, secretaries. A committee of twenty was then raised on resolutions, consisting ot ten whites and ten blacks. This was all that was done in the morning, except the speaking, and the convention ad journed until evening. When tlie body assembled it was entertain ed by addresses from gentleman ot both col ors, and adjourned until ten o'clock next day. VV lieu it reassembled on tlie 28th instant, the piatlbnn and resolutions were reported and adopted, and the banner ol the Republi can pally ol Noilb Carolidn uuiuried ani.d tlie enthusiastic cheers of delegates and spec tators. Alter providing lor tbe appointment ol an executive and sub-committees, the con vention then adjourned nine die. During these entire proceedings the utmost harmony and enthusiasm prevailed. The gal leries were crowded with a dense assemblage of colored people, and the lobbies frequently became impassable, while tbe commingled as semblage 01 whites and blacks, wondering reb els and elated loyalists, protruded lar into the main aisle, it was a strange sight to all pres ent—to lederal officers and 1 aukees w ho were assembled here and there—us well as to tlie gaping chivalry. Vet there was no disturb ance, and good order prevailed on every hand. There were many participants in the con vention among tbe whites who are excluded I rum office and voting by the Sherman recou rtructiou biii. Rut they did not presume to lead—they simply co-operated witu tbe others. Every officer of tlie convention was ‘ an Isra elite, in whom there is no guile,” for each one could subsenbe tbe oath ol July 2d, 1802. As to the excluded gentlemen, them position w as in tbe back seats, they took them voluntari ly, iu order to lend tlieir mducuce to tbe si mon-pure loyalists lor good. "They did this thing, to their' honor be it said, and aie eo-op erating with the Republican party like true men. Under the circumstances, who can cav il at tlieir presence? W bo will say, drive them oil?—throw their influence away or turn it away by so doing? Such a course would endt in disaster as it commenced m lolly. Liberality Rrriproenied. T. «T. Furniss & Co., New York, have confi dentially sent us their confidential circular, in which they, in the most private and confidential manner, propose to hestow upon us “a few thousand dollars,” only stipulating that we shall tell where the money came from, through what ugency, and not hesitate to “show the greenbacks and make it well knuwn that they are tlie proceeds of a prizo drawn at our [their] office.” Generous men! We thank them in the most confidential manner,and propose not to he be hind them in liberality. They modestly dis claim all motives such as wo w ould accord to them, and say they mean business; and to show how they mean to make money by such a gratuitous distribution of thousands we copy (confidentially) a paragraph from their litho graphed circular, thanking them for the com pliment of having been selected as the recipi ent of the gift because of our “discretion.” They say: "W c have come to the conclusion to increase our business in your part of the country by adding to the number of our correspondents ami hiding convinced that the safest and most satisfactory plan ot doing so is to send a prize of a few thousand dollars to some d’sercet anil reliable person who will have no objection to show the money and state tlie fact to his ac quaintances that the prizo was drawn bv a lucky investment at our office. We have there fore selected you as the party more liki ly than uny ono else to aid ns in our enterprise, anil make you tlie following liberal and extraordi nary proposition. After stating the “liberal and extraordinary proposition,” they go on to say: And that you may not suppose that there is any deception in it, we inform you that tlio prize money does not come out of our pockets but out id that ot the lottery managers, and we shall not lose by sending you a lew thou sand dollars, hut he gainers by the increased am.mat of business we shall expect from your neighborhood when you show the “green backs" and make it well known that they aro the proceeds of a prize drawn at our office We make this offer to you in strict confi dence. The proposal is plain. What can bo more generous? And now for the condition. They only ask us to send them §10, not for their pockets, but “simply to pay the managers of the lotteries for a splendidly arranged package of eight tickets,” sub" ject to our order, which they warrant to draw, over anil above all expenses, at least §2,000, or they will send us another packaye with out cost / We must say their generosity overwhelms us, and to show we are not insensible to such kindness, we propose, instead of sending them $10 and they sending ns $2,000, that they send us, in “greenbacks,” ouly $1500, keeping hack the $10 for the managers aforesaid, and also $500 to be put in their own pockets! We trust they may send l.y return mail, for wo are very anxious to commence rendering the equivalent by “showing the greenbacks” anil telling friciuls of our good luck and to whom wo are iudebted for it. We shall do lliis -wheu the greenbacks come—without a solitary pang or compunction. Come, geutle tleuien, forward the “greenbacks”.—we will cheerfully pay the expressago, and consider your letter “strictly private.” 1 NiHii Independence. W. E. H.
