War was then raging between France and England, and was only appeased by the marriage of King Edward with Marguerite of France. Tider and his wife followed the new queen to England; but never were the suspicions and animosity of Edward againd his royal favor, and Tider was again compelled to seek shelter in France, where he lived, with his wife and children, on a pension left them Jacques Toutant-Beauregard was the first of the name who came from France to Louisiana, under Louis XIV., as Commandant of a flotilla, the pu in his enterprise in this connection that he was, on his return to France, decorated with the Cross of Saint Louis.

On the 4th of August, 1870, three Prussian divisions, of tre finally surrounded, and compelled to surrender, with Marshal Bazaine, October 29th, 1870, after an heroic but useless defense, so far as regarded the safety of France. General Beauregard is of opinion that, had the Confederates been in better fighting condition, the corresponding error of Sherman would have ended the battle was, when making a preliminary reconnoissance, killed by a chance shot; then his successor, instead of attacking, retreated, and all which the one had gained for France the other lost. The falsity of the comparison is too flagrant to need more than a passing notice. First, it was at the suggestion of General Beauregard that
