THE REMAINS OF LOUIS PHILIPPE. A petition, sent to the French Senate, praying that the remains of Louis Philippe should be brought back to France, which is as follows, is published in the Journal de Paris Messieurs les Senateurs,—Louis Philippe T., King of the French, died in England. His remains repose under a foreign soil far from that of France, which he loved so much. During his reign he feared not to send one of his sons beyond the equator to seek the remains of the Emperor Napoleon 1. It would be worthy of the Sovereign who now presides over the destinies of France to give to the mortal remains of that unfortunate monarch a French sepulchre. We ask that the ashes of Louis Philippe should be brought back to France While yet young, that King fought for France and tke Republic, at Jemmapes and at Valpy. During the eighteen years of his reign he assured to France the blessings of peace; he administered the public funds with a rigorous economy; and, finally, it was he who made Algeria a French colony. The epoch in which we live is too en- lightened to require that his name should become legendary before a work of justice or indulgence should be performed. If his reign did not realise all the promises he made before putting on the crown, if it was not absolutely the best of republics, the people do not forget that it was to his reign that they are indebted for the laws on primary instruction and local railways. These souvenirs protect his memory, and justify the petition which we now submit to you.—We have the honour, &c. The Journal de Paris adds, that the petition is signed by MM. Dellattre, Leon Clery, Jourdan, Arthur Hubbard, and Lasne, all members of the Paris bar, none of whom belong to what is called the Orleanist party."
