Ii Fanti i Perla Misica will find at no. 9 Rue Vivienne a violin of paganini�?Ts0 which on first sight merely presents tin appearance of a misshapen wooden shoe. The Story thereof is curious. During the Winter of 1838 Paganini was living in a Maison de Sante called los Neo thermes Ruo Delavic Torie no. 48. A Large Box was brought to him by Tho Normandy Diligence on opening which he found two inner boxes acid carefully wrapped in several folds of tissue paper a wooden shoe and a letter stating that the writer having heard much of his Genius begged As a proof thereof that he would perform in Public on a instr mint made out of Liis Sabot. Paganini Felt this to be an impertinent satire and mentioned the Story with Soine annoyance to his Friend the Chevalier de Baride. The latter took the Sabot to a violin maker who with wondrous ingenuity converted it into a musical instrument. The Chevalier insisted 011 Paganini trying the Sabot. He not Only did so but performed on it some of his most exquisite fantasias which fact in the handwriting of the great musician is recorded on a a lip of Papor now to be found a a posted on the Sabot violin for Sale in the Rue Vivienne.

From Tho London mercantile Gazette Juno 20. Foiled in Tho Luxembourg business Prus. Sia has been seeking another quarrel at Tho Hague. It seems that Somo 1 13 a compromised As it is alleged in a conspiracy against Tho prussian government were compelled to take Refugo in Holland. In the late crisis when the relations of France and Prussia were Darker than at present these fugitives kept As near As possible to Tho prussian. Frontier to to ready 1er certain eventualities. Count Bismarck has that by a pact with the German but dated 1825, he has a right to demand the extradition of these exiles. This demand Lias actually been made to the dutch government. The latter Lias however decidedly refused to comply the prussian government having continued to insist upon it and Tho Cabinet at the Hague having resolved not to yield Tho latter has been compelled to order the refugees to quit the soil of the Netherlands. This breach of the hospitality of Hollandia. Wholly duo to Tho pressure of its High handed neighbor. The affair has aroused intense indignation in Holland and has been the subject of interpellation in the states Gene a Ftp. The French press make significant comments on the growing arrogance of Tho court at Berju. Berlin june 25�?evening.�?Tho Semi official North German Gazette of this evening publishes a article in which it combats the explanation Given by. Lord Derby and lord Stanley in reference to Tho Luxemburg guarantee and declares that an Appeal can indubitably be Trade to the guarantee month Zocca Bou of any violation of Tho treaty. It adds a we believe that lord Stanley Enid favored in the. House of commons to represent in As insignificant a Light As possible Tho violation of the principle of non intervention which was a committed in undertaking Tho guarantee. This View alone can explain the statement of the English minister that in the last resort of the House of commons through it right of. Withholding supplies was the judge As it it whether War should be made or not. It is Well known that the British Crown has the right of declaring War. And the parliament finding itself confronted by tar is essentially bound to prosecute it from feelings of patriotism. Front this Point of View the statements made by lord Derby and lord Stanley Are explicable but it is impossible for us to look upon them As seriously meant to to a limitation of the treaty obligation hitherto considered to have been undertaken in a general and extended a very Petit link Case of sixteen years ago last wednesday James Bay then a resident of Pontiac was bitten by a Rabid dog but experienced 110 serious effects from the bite until Ono year from the Day on which be was bitten.
