— A COMIC CONSPIRACY. It is now asserted that the mysterious rifles of the French conspirators were convened from Belgium'in canal barges, and that they were disembarked at some place on the river near Puteaux or Courbevoie, whence they were taken away with the accompanying con- signments of sword-bayonets to a safe place. In connection with this strange affair, which is considered serious by some and utterly ludicrous by others (says the "Telegraph's" correspon- dent), it is affirmed that Captain Tamburini, or his agent, went to London m the course of last February for the purpose of obtaining recruits among the young Frenchmen living in the capi- tal of England. The recruiter visited public- houses frequented by French persons, but he does not seem to have accomplished his object. There is another theory to the effect that the sham plot was simply and solely the pet project of Captain Tamburini, who, according to the testimony of some persons who know him, is touched with the "folie desi grandeurs," and im- agines that he ought to be carrying out, enter- prises of "great pith and moment." Hence he hatched the bogus plot, at which the majority of people are laughing.
