A WALK ROUND THE PARIS EXHIBITION.

A WALK ROUND THE PARIS EXHIBITION. The changes that take place here from day to day are of so vast a nature that it must be agreed if the French cannot organize they can work, for it seems every morning as if a year's work had been got through during the night; and this, of course, is all to the advantage of that hypothe- tical "completion" that will probably never be effected. Now, upon this subject of the ultimate completion, I want to say a word to the English first, and the French after- wards. To the English I have to say that the exhibition is so vast, so various, and so rich, that those who explore it in a proper frame of mind, will experience a succession of delightful gurprises, and may give their attention ad- vantageously to any special subjects they may desire to study in detail. Let no one defer the intended visit be- cause of reports that the exhibition is still incomplete. The wise man will find enough and to spare of splendid entertainments he will find sections, and courts and gal- leries so complete and glorious, that he will.be unable to propose any improvement of them, and if in some odd corners and alleys he should find himself mixed up with packing-cases, or encounter a team of horses and a gang of carters making noise enough to disturb all Europe, he will quietly turn to the left or the right and forget these trifles in the enjoyment of a feast of pictures, sculpture, pottery, or whatever else may offer to console him, and drive dull care away. Now, I am bound to say to the French, that they are all too loud and vehement in de- claring the exhibition to be unfinished. Their vehemence of self-accusation in respect of this matter, is equally in- jurious and discreditable. From every housetop in Paris there seems to proceed a loud reproach against the man who is on his way to the Trocadfero. "Bah! it is not finished; why do you go there ?" There was some excuse for this at first, but the continuation of it is not only impolitic but offensive, and from this time every Frenchman who abuses the Exhibition should be made to feel that he is making a fool of himself. -Pictorial World.
