Who is the Count de Paris?
--A correspondent of the Charleston Courier
gives the following account of this individual, who recently volunteered in the Lincoln
army and received an appointment on McClellan
The Count de Paris
is the son of the late Duke
, who was the oldest son of King Louis Phillippe
He is the Orleanist heir to the French
throne, and if his grandfather had not set Lincoln
the example of stifling the freedom of the press, the young man might have reigned as Francis III.
He now serves as a captain in the rail-splitter's army.
I sincerely hope that one of our sharp-shooters will pick off this young sprig of royalty.
Should he and his companion be made to bite the dust, the Bonaparts who reigns in the ancient palaces of the Bourbons will smile grimly on our new Republic.
