The French Government is determined to pay no honour to
M. Thiers. He is utterly neglected, and M. Vilain had to make a motion that the Assembly receive seats at the Review in honour of the Shah, in order to secure him a fitting place. Even then, however, the extra tickets he asked for were refused, and accord- ingly he was not present at the review. The new Government knew of course that all the cheers would be directed to the President who made this army, and not to the gentlemen who had dismissed him, and had not the magnanimity to bear even an acknowledgment of the fallen. M. Thiers can wait.
