A Paris letter says : "Theaccounts given me of the effects of the bombardment bom-bardment .are very curious. A 'lady who resides in the center of Paris, not far from the Tuileries, tells me that for sixty hours, nighc and day, the whole air was full of thunder, and clouds of smoke and the lightning of cannon were all around the horizon. Every window was rattling; every vase, cup, glass, dancing on the tables. The roar was perpetual. They could reckon the distance of artillery by timing flash and report; shells came screaming through the air, bursting near with dull explosions, and the whole din and tremor so affected the nervous system that when it ceased at last her whole body felt like a limb 'asleep.' She could scarcely feel herself to exist, seemed to walk on air, and was in doubt whether she was any longer in her body."
