TROUBLE IN FRANCE.
(Per Pb»?b Association.)
Paris, Marob 14.
It is* reported m the city that M. Tirard, the French Premier, has discovered that M. Paul De Routede, President of the recently suppressed French -Patriotic League, has issued an order to the members of all branches of the League instructing them to mobilise with a view to carrying out a revolution.
The Chamber of Deputies authorised the prosecution of M. Raspail, member for tbe Seine, M. Laguerre, member for Varclme, M. Loisant, member for Loire Inferieure, and M. Marqueset, member for Haute Saone, the Deputies who, it is alleged, are guilty of complicity m the acts of tbe recently suppressed Patriotic League.
The debate following the motion for the prosecution of these Deputies was of a most stormy character, and m consequence of words used m the heat of the argument several duels are being arranged. At one moment of great confusion General Boulanger rose suddenly and commanded silence.
