interesting. M. 011ivier, who spoke first of the Opposition, an- nounced that he should support the address, believing that the Em- peror might by a constitution like that contained in the Acte Ad- ditionel still give freedom to France and stability to his rule. His speech is discussed in another column, and opinion as to his motives is still much divided, the majority welcoming him as a convert, the minority denouncing him as a traitor. It appears certain that three-fourths of the Legislative Body congratulated him on his speech, and that he has since been besieged with calls—his enemies say from aspirants.
