It

plan was the opposite of this, and consisted in concentrating his troops at certain points, and bringing them into action in large masses. Cavaignac treated the outbreak not as a mere insurrection, but as the commencement of a civil war, and met it in regular order of battle. We do not intend to repeat here the history of those eventful days, or to relate at length how severe the contest and how great the bloodshed had become before the National Assembly passed a resolution declaring Paris in a state of siege, and appointed Cavaignac Dictator, with absolute and unlimited powers. is enough to state that after four days of fighting in the streets of Paris, during which the killed and wounded on both sides amounted to above 8,000, including Generals Brea and Negrier, and M. Affre, the Archbishop of Paris, Cavaignac found himself the absolute disposer of the destinies of Paris and of France. Had he been capable of mere selfish ambition, he might doubtless have secured for himself, for a time at least, the possession of unlimited authority. He was true, however, to his republican principles, and laid down his "Dictatorship," like some ancient Roman, as soon as he had pacified the capital. The National Assembly, however, aware of the importance of his services, appointed him President of the Council, with power to nominate his own ministry. At length, after long and protracted discussions, the Assembly determined that a president should be elected by universal suffrage. Cavaignac was put forward by the middle-class republicans. The result was as follows:-for Louis Napoleon, 5,534,520 votes; for Cavaignac, 1,448,302; for Ledru Rollin, 371,431; for Raspall, 36,964; for Lamartine, 17,914; for Changarnier, 4,687; for sundry other candidates, 12,434, the total number of voters polled being 7,449,471. On laying down his extraordinary powers, Cavaignac received the thanks of the National Assembly and the compliments of his successor. When Louis Napoleon executed his coup d'état, in December, 1851, one of his precautions was to arrest Cavaignac in his bedchamber. The General, however, was released after a brief detention, and has resided unmolested in Paris ever since that time, though he has never acquiesced in either the Dictatorship or the Empire. In July last Cavaignac was returned, after a severe struggle, as one of the ten deputies for Paris, in opposition to the Imperialist party.

Oct. 29. Turin has just sustained a severe if not an irreparable loss in the death of Count Giuseppe Siccardi. The late count was a distinguished jurist, and had for many years past held some of the highest offices in the magistracy to the entire satisfaction of all political opinions. The late King of Sardinia, Charles Albert, had so much respect for the judgment of Count Saccardi that it is said he particularly recommended him to his son in his private communications as one whose counsel was most to be depended upon. In 1848 Count Siccardi was intrusted by King Charles Albert with a special diplomatic mission to the pope at Gaeta, which, of course, was not successful, as its object was to establish, or rather re-establish, a friendly feeling between the two governments without Piedmont sacrificing its independence to Rome. Since his retirement from the ministry, which, in consequence of declining health, occurred soon after the passing of the bill for the suppression of the Ecclesiastical Courts, Count Siccardi has held the office of President of the Criminal Department of the Court of Appeal, and, having been created a senator by the king, he has continually given his support to the policy of the Cavour Ministry, both foreign and domestic.

A woman named Martha Heath, aged 83, living

at Sandford-st., Cheltenham, was found drowned in the river Chelt, near Barrette's Mill. We understand that, although the deceased went by the name of Heath, her real name was Martha Probert. She was the wife of a man of that name who was, in company of Thurtell and Hunt, engaged in the robbery and murder of Mr. Weare, whose death about 33 years ago caused so much excitement throughout the country. On that occasion Probert saved himself from the gallows by turning king's evidence. His two companions in crime were convicted and hung, and Probert himself was some time afterwards, under very peculiar circumstances, convicted of horse-stealing, and, the crime at that time being a capital offence, he suffered the same fate as his former accomplices. Mrs. Probert then took upon herself the name of Heath, and has since resided with her relatives in Cheltenham.
