RAMBLES ABOUT PARIS. iuisccllani) BV REV. j;T. HEXm.IT. There can scarcely be two things more dissimilar 111 their outward appearance and inward .arrangement than a prison and a palace, yet in Paris one associates them together more frequently than anything else." In tins gay capitid, tlie palace has not only frequently been the prison ofits inmates, but the portico to a gloomier dungeon. In the revolution, a palace-was the most dangerous residence one could occupv ; and there was not a poverty-stricken wretch in Paris who did not feel more secure than those who occupied it. From a pidace to prison, was then a short step, aiid from the prison to the scaffold a shorter still. First in the list comes the palace of the Tuileries, tin- residence of the King and court. 1 do not design to describe this in detail, for it would be indefinite in the first place, and hence dry and uninteresting, in the second place. This magnificent palace fronts the garden of the Tuileries on outside...
