A PANEGYRIC ON THE POPE. The Paris correspondent of The Times, referring to the list of Princes who have come, and are coming to Paris, remarks that he has seen no allusion to the Pope. He goes on to say that M. Veuillot, in the Univers, seems to have no doubt of the way the Holy Father would be received. M. Veuillot says:- There is one Sovereign who will not come. He is poor, he has no armaments, and he does not even know how many days he may be left in possession of his throne. But his Crown nothing can strip him of, and that Crown he will transmit to his successor. He is humble; but no human power can force him to bend. He says to 200 millions of men, This is what you are to believe," and 200 millions of men believe for, whatever may happen, there never will be wanting on the earth men to testify tois truth, and to seal that testimony with their blood were it to be drawn from them drop by drop. If that King came, and travelled by slow stages, he wou.d see, from one end of France to the other, multitudes on their knees as he passed along, the people strewing the ground with their garments as a carpet for him, and the Empress of the French throwing before him her Imperial mantle. What would happen in the world had this King been called to the Councils of the Sovereigns, and had he deigned to appear there and if things took such a turn that he could go back to his city, where he has no need of barracks or of boulevards, nor any of the en- gines with which European civilization "dishonours its splendour.?. We are not prophets, nor the- sons of prophets; but we do not hesitate to affirm that, were the counsels of that King listened to, something more clear and more certain than the Articles of the London Conference would issue from them to reassure mankind. There would then be no such urgency to reduce the minimum of the soldier's height, nor to urge on ar- mourers to their work. The house of Rothschild would not venture to lend money even to the King of Italy, and Poland would cover in joyous purple her mutilated form, before which the impudence of the modern world is constrained to cast down its eyes.
