and the terraces which command the Place de Is Concorde and line the railing of the Rue were closely packed from an early hour The Place de la Concorde leU was not 10 full as 1 have often seen It on an Il- lumination night but still tbe troops and National Guards were It on either side by very dense masses occupying half the vast arena The shops were not generally closed and although nothing could be more respectful than the attitude of the crowd as the coffin passed there was nothing at all like that universally pervading sentiment of a really national mourning such us has been on former

The occasion of its immediate prominence Is as U well known the fact that a military corps of youths balling from the City of Is now In tour midst Attired In singular garb heralded by sands of pens as moral brave wealthy skillful and wonderful they have come suddenly upon us In tbe very doggiest of and without waiting for rest refreshment or a barber have dally nay hourly astonished delighted surprised the few thousands of citizens who prefer the exciting sensations of our City lire to the quiet of a rural re- treat We the shop Winston coals cues umbrellas and There nothing has hitherto LISD but now ean with the African cognomen Although this corps has given a number of exhibitions now at the Park and again at some of oar It has at no time been brought so prominently before tae public w on the occasion of its grand dress drill and theatrical performance at tbe Academy of last evening Before referring lo that exhibition It may be of interest for the reader to be somewhat familiarized with the original Zouave regiments their formation and history and In brief we will attempt to accomplish that ead A decree of Oct approved by a royal ance March 21 1631 created two battalions of Zouaves in tbe French service To perceive the for this body of troops to understand the ture of the service required of them and to obtain a Just notion of their port an I position In African fairs It will be necessary to glance for a moment at the previous history of Algeria under tbe Deys and especially at the history of that Turkish they were to body of Irresponsible since 1518 had exercised the greatest power In Africa and had rendered name hated and feared by the most distant tribes In of the power which a noted pirate of Turkey obtained In Algeria when at the requestor the Turkish Emirs he had driven out the Christians who had attempted the tion of Algeria he was enabled to declare himself Sultan or Dey of Algiers and for several years In peacefully maintaining his position In he was succeeded by his brother by whose ability skill and the Ottoman power was In Northwestern Africa The Inhabitants both Hoot and Arab hated him and be was continually by them and by the from the North Their Incursions were so constant and their annoyances so Incessant that he was com- to form a large body of mercenary troops on whom alone he could rely and by whom alone he could maintain his supremacy These were drawn mostly from Turkey and were consequently united with him by a feeling of dependence In common danger and al the same time bound by no feeling of Interest or affection to tne Inhabitants of the soil They soon became a power In the land they were inured to hardship were alert were brave and unrelenting Becoming tired of their master they slew him one act of followed another Deys were elevated and deposed al their dicta their will was supreme their decision final It Is recorded that in the short space of twenty years there wore six Deys nominally their rulers In reality their of whom four were de- capitated one abdicated through fear white only one died peacefully in the exercise of bis governing This body of troops called themselves In 16211 they active shrewd well disciplined and capable men who were always ready for pillage rapine or war In no case was a Moor allowed to serve In the army and nil ment In tbe service of the State was also denied them None but Turks or In some cases renegade Christians were allowed to lead the soldiers and hence no spirit of patriotism was found In tne breasts of officer or which would In the least degree mollify the savage cruelty with which the natives were treated and at last after the lapse of years the poor Inhabitants hail become so accustomed to the the barbarity and the tyranny of the sol that they settled down into sullen subjection till spirit and hope were lost and resistance ceased to be an idea In their minds year 1830 the Dey of Algiers was one lies sun PACHA who seems to have been a person of rare talent In those days who combined the peculiarities with a correct and systematic Idea o military discipline He was not a favorite with the soldiers who disliked him because at one time he took from them a number of camels laden with pre- spoils and restored them to their owner with whose fair daughter be enamored and whom he subsequently married Tire act of restora tlon of course did not affect the army but tbe placing of a Moorish woman at he head of the Royal Harem was considered sin outrageous Insult to every dirty Tmx In the ranks the amorous 1 waa secretly upon arid a plot was formed the carrying out of which hare sent to his last in a very thort space of time lie was however too Keen an observer of men tp bA long In the dark be saw that the long-established unity of Day and was tottering on verge of dissolution arid while yet Ignorant of tht aforementioned plot his life determined upon a which should strike terror into tbe minds of his lowers and reestablish him elf firmly upon shoulders The difficulty wit i Prince necessity of some step Immediate and he devised aid executed the following On the 1st of June 1830 he Invited one hundred and fifty of ates tp meet him at a favorite place of resort whore they should dine and wine together The Invitation was accepted they went to the rendezvous at a given signal every man wss his arms tied be- 1 bind him and bis eyes blindfolded They weic then an Immense natural near by into were rudely thrust and where tbe being sealed up they were left to grope lo starve to linger In dreadful agony and lo die The agents of this terrific revenge were ly elevated In rank and informed so long as they propriety and served the Dey with they might expect every earthly enjoyment and all future bills while if they rebelled or In any way crossed his purposes they might an- a fate tn way the equal of the one they had aided In giving their fellow officers Such deeds as foregoing were of frequent aod failed to secure the desired effect To be sure tbe Sultan wan feared but he was also haled and his foes only for the opportunity to vent upon him their spleen On 12th of June 1830 when the French fleet up to the port of Algiers occasion seemed to offer the long-desired day of revenge and in a body the tendered their services to the French Commander Cen he declined the offer which wss accepted by a less jaus power and was left out In the cold Of course the news was soon spread far and wide that bad deserted chieftain and had joined French This news struck great terror into the hearts of tbe Arabs but wben the contra- diction became bruited about and the fact was known that the French had to their ires for the hated troopers it caused a sensation of tellef and an elevation of spirit no less marked the tribes The French commander having noticed the paid to the by tbe natives having seen the absolute rule which they beld over the people of Ibe country and having ob- served the high state of discipline and the effective method of warfare adopted by these soldiery mined to organize a body of troops which should re- and In fact be based on a model derived from the described above He de- to make tbe Corps a marked feature of his com- mand to give them special and honorable duty and to designate them by some name as significant as that held by the under the old regime As It wai matter of some he considered long While before he came to conclusion that THE would ke a proper suggestive and fitting title or what he Intended should be the crack corps of his grand The term Is derived from the Arabic word The arc a tribe or rather a confederation of tribes who Inhabit the gorges of the Mountains which mountains separate ria from Constantino They were fine brave fierce and laborious They were confessedly the best troops In the country and the only ones who given tn a merely nominal submission to tbe Turks This being the act It was esteemed a dis- honor when General gave their name to his newly formed battalions All tbe officers were Frenchman and a great majority of the soldiers also In fact but very few and only as a reward for some deed of daring of Tbe natives were allowed to serve even as common soldiers in arm of the service The service was altogether none being appointed to serve In the ranks of this envied corps save those who personally applied for and deserved honor Scores of young and spirits were found who joy fully embraced this life so harassing so excising so full of peril and The two battalions were formed at every battle they noble service and soon had place to which General had de- fft head Ind front of the army of The first battalion was by Major sad the second by Capl wbo died to Pails in 1848 The discipline of this body of men was rigorous In the extreme and their labor excessively wearisome After a series of months leading this life dally they became wonders of physical endurance To the dis- maintained by their commanders ware due the working power be Uie self-dependence and all tbe other qualities possessed In so eminent a degree by these peculiar men and Ir- resistible soldiers The Zouaves were never allowed to be hi le If not laboring they were studying and practicing with their arms learning the ss well as the practical part of their arduous duties Their relaxations their times wonld make a modern soldier stare If not swear they would fence the mounted bayonet jump leap wrestle climb run for miles at a swim put up and tear down temporary structures throw up embankments erect and destroy bridges carry heavy burdens ride and In every way train their muscular developments and their physical frame They were required to be masons ters blacksmiths builders ditchers farmers men and hunters By practice they soon became enabled to make long marches to sustain the est burdens for a long time to go without eating drinking or sleeping for a great length of time to do anything and everything thai time and occasion seem to demand to be surprised at nothing to be prepared for every thing to cat food or raw fresh or old sweet or putrid to drink water from tho gushing spring or the purlieus of the stable to be wet or dry to be merry courteous brave ready hardy quick and capable at all tiroes and above all things to obey with most Implicit faith the command suggestion hint word or look of their Captain was picturesque In the extreme and yet the best stble cut lor their necessities The fancy fez the low backed jacket the baggy trowsers extending to the calf of the leg and tying up In folds the Mashing boo is and the general style was lated to take tbe eye please sense and Impress the scene Indelibly on the mind of the beholder If tbe Zouaves should be deprived by siege of their munition they would fight with the butt end of guns U by stratagem they should lose their guns they would throw stones If there were no atones would Indulge In fistiana and U hands and feet were cut off they would butt with their heads and pummel with their stumps These then were the men chosen by the French to take the place In Algerian eyes of the who for so long a time wero the terror and the pest of the country Not to prolong the account we will briefly glance at the Zouaves as we find them In tbe French army at a later day During the Crimean and Italian wars we bear of them as invariably the heroes of day They are always ways the first to begin and the last to leave dissolute wayward except with their officers utterly regardless of right and wrong dash Ing drinking swearing carousing fearless able with strong attachments and hatreds at all times prepared and never unready they won from ST Amico at the battle of the Alma the title nl the bravest soldiers in the world and from at they are my pets Their devotion to their Colonel Is touching they call him and lender to him an obedience such as few papas in this pait of the world get from their spring Is he They nurse him tenderly they watch him carefully and guard him jealously he need some dailng spirit for a deed of danger and ot honor t A score contest for the place Does he wish a favor granted The entire regiment would fight for the privilege of obliging Papa And in turn the Colonel loves bis men They are to him as children In their good and brave deeds finds In their prestige be finds honor and in danger be finds for himself a post of equal peril and side by side the officer and the soldier fight for their country their regiment and themselves It is after these men that THE C ADITS hailing from Chicago are modeled If we under- stand them correctly our military friends from tlie West have formed Into a volunteer mUr tary association lor the purpose of perfecting theaf in all peculiarities which having ti acted the attention of the world to the Zouaves of the French Aimy have given to them a acter as lasting as time and a reputation at dear to them as the apples of their several eyes Our have been practicing some tle time they have boughten themselves a uniform of which we shall spok they have adopted t code of rulfs have established a reputation and last are found displaying themselves at tbe request o His Honor tbe Mayor and sundry Military clals at the Academy of Pointing to their uniform their code their reputation and their they Hie tt arma Tha being the case we shall embrace tbe present occasion to examine both tt arma and tell the public what we think of The American Zouave differs from and resembles the French Zouave In various and sundry lars The American or rather the Zouave does not smoke be does not the balmy weed he does not nor play billiards nor drink rum whisky wine COM lala coffee tea or other calculated to excite the nerves to tbe conscience and to Infuse jollity into his every fibre but the French Zouave does all these things He eats drinks and is merry because u is often the case on the morrow he dies and he Is bound to have a good time while he lives leaving It lo others than to take charge of hil hereafter The can Zouave apparently takes great pride In standing erect and cultivating a West walk while the truthfulness of history compels us to gay that tbe French Zouave Is a reckless dog now walking now with hut hands on head In his pockets or folded before him just as the fancy suits him The American Zouave wears pint Moons of one kind and length the French Zouave wears another Tbe one astonishes the beholder with beautifully belled buttons while tbe other would ss soon wear a pair of glasses In- the heat of battle as button up with the bell-shaped fasteners And Indeed It would be no difficult task for us did we have space or to point out many other matters wherein the two types of differ But It Is unnecessary and might be strued Into a determination to find fault with this very gentlemanly and entirely moral set of young military men whose advent Into this City we so kindly arid fully at tbe time and whose every subsequent nubile movement has been duly chronicled by the Dam Tinas It having been announced In the TIMSS of yester day that the Chicago would give a grand dress exhibition at the Academy of Music anil as
