M. Carrel, editor of the National de 1834, was again
cited on the 29th August, before the Court of Assizes, sitting in banco, for another breach .of the injunction issued by the Court, interdicting that journal from publishing any report of judicial proceedings. M. Carrel having made default, he was sentenced to two months imprisonment, and a fine of WS/ francs.—French Paper. In the Court of Assize at Paris, on Saturday, M. Buchoz Hilton Was placed at the bar, and aceused by the Attorney-General of offence against the person of the King. What was the offence? A flagrant one, certainly—that of making and vending plaster casts of pears, so fashioned as to resemble the King's effigy. As to proofs, they were not wanting : a host of pears were produced, on paper, in plaster, in lead, on the heads of canes of every kind, and for every service. It was impossible for the must sanctified quasi-Legitimist to regard this array without, relaxing his muscles into a grin. The Judges, indeed, held their gravity ; the Jurors were not proof ; but as to the auditory, so irresistible to them was cachinnation, that the Procureur-General got up, and gravely moved the Court to exclude the public, and render the trial secret, as the view of the objects adduced in proof was calcu- lated. to trouble the public tranquillity. M. Buchez Hilton was ex- amined, mid entitled himself " Ex-Colonel of the Volunteers of July," —which means, chief of one of the bodies of insurgent conquerors of July I S.39 ; but now, alas, the Colonel is a vendor of ink and blacking, but inure especially of pears. Nay, so peculiarly was the latter his commerce, that the sign over hie shop is that of the " Poire :Mlle," or Soft Pear. I sincerely regret not being able to continue my account of the trial ; but here it was that the laughter of the audience inter- vened, and that the Attorney-General demanded, in self-defence, that the said audience, viz. the public, he turned out ; which request the Court granted ; and, consequently, I am able to say no more of the poor ex-Colonel and vendor of pears, except that the Jury, not wishing to condemn him, any more than M. Carrel, to the extinction of his civil rights, gave a verdict of acquittal at once. And now, what think you of the French Attorney- General ?—Pricale Correspondent (Pile Morn- ing Chronicle.
The Cersaire of Friday was stopped at the Post-office (in Paris), and seized at the office of the ;ournal.
The cruel disasters which have lately afflicted the Stock Exchange would seem calculated to calm the unbridled passion of gambling in the public Funds, which ingulfs the fortune of so many speculators. This, however, is far from being the case. The Exchange is more frequented than ever. Even the females, whom the Police by a petty coup (Petal bad expelled in the first instance from the upper galleries, are now ejected beyond the outer railings, and have addressed the Minister for permission to resume their primitive stations. The number of these gamblers is said to be from 100 to 120; some of whom prudently de- clined to affix their signatures to the petition, from a desire to avoid publicity. The majority appear to belong to a class of society between the bourgeoise and the servant. Those who were the most plainly attired seemed to speculate most largely. We remarked one in particular, who appears to purchase extensively at the new hotel for auctions, also situated in the Place de la Bourse. Some time ago, a celebrated actress fre- quented the galleries, and met with immense losses ; she has at length discontinued her visits. On one side the Place dela Bourse, may he seen a lady established at a porter's lodge, where the brokers visit her at intervals, while she herself is employed in embroidering. Another comes in company with her husband. The speculating couple retrain the whole of 'Change hours without stirriug from their cariole, and re- ceive the visits of numerous agents, whose personal attendance betokens the importance of the affairs which occupy their attention. Madame la --, wife of one of the clerks in a Government office, is also a speculator on 'Change, and has even by her influence induced an old governess who brought her up, and her cook, to follow her example. This lady has an apartment even in the Place de la Bourse, and severely blames the females whose indecent behaviour forced the municipal au- thorities to eject them from the temple, like the dealers in Scripture. This lady, in order to be completely informed of the fluctuation in prices, forms a chain, leading from the ante.chamber to the Exchange, of which she is the first link. At the bottom of the staircase she plants the female porter ; on the Other side of the street stands her etiok ; and, Smelly, on the steps of the edifice arc placed in succession four children of the porter, why regularly transmit the quotations delivered to them by the governess, whose special charge is not to remove from the depot of canes and umbrellas.—French Paper. The fol iwing was the method of strangulation adopted by the Spanish authorities, in putting a drummer to death, on the 16th ult., for stealing in a convent. The convict, clothed in a coarse yellow robe, wearing a low yellow cap, with a white cross painted in front, was seated upon a low stool to the leg of which his feet were tied ; at the back of the stool rose a straight upright post, into which, at the height of a man's neck, was fastened an iron ring opening with a hinge ; into this ring was placed the neck of the condemned, and at a given signal, by means of a wrench the ring was tightened round the jugular, and in one second respiration ceased and life was extinct.
