Sergeant-Major John Laverty, who was present at the attempted assassination of the Emperor, makes the following statement He was in full-dress, returning from the review, as the carriage containing the Emperor passed. He saluted, and, being in the front rank, was especially noticed by the Em- peror Napoleon, who was nearest him. At the moment the Emperors were in line with him, about ten feet off, he felt a hand on his shoulder, and instantaneously a deafening re- port. Turning rapidly, he confronted a man with a revolver minus the barrel in his hand, whom he secured, the crowd rushing to the rescue, and the excitement being tremendous. The assassin was torn from his grasp, and shortly after taken charge of by the police. There can be little doubt that the lives of the Emperors were saved by the blowing off of the barrel of the revolver, which was, perhaps, due to overloading. This explanation is rendered more probable by the fact that the sergeant- major received no injury, although the pistol was on his shoulder.
