The Sultan is going to Paris to see the Exhibition.

He leaves Constantinople to-day. The incident is noteworthy, no Sultan having ever visited a European city outside his own dominions except at the head of an army. We wonder what Abdul Asia will think of Paris. Will he return awed by the civilization and visible greatness of the West, like Jung Bahadoor ? or will he be wearied with the hurry and bustle of Western life, like Abdel Bader? or will he, like Arimoollah, return disenchanted, soured, and ready for a massacre?
