The Paris correspondent of the Chicago Times gives an interesting description of the scenes at the recent opening of the session of the Corps Legislatif of France, which was attended with much pomp and show of imperial grandeur. He says: All the persons who received cards of invitation were required to be present before a quarter past 12 o'clock, when the doors were closed.

At the upper end was an estrade, on which was placed the Emperor's throne, over which was a canopy of crimson velvet, decorated with glided eagles.
