Thiers, Pre- sident of the French Bepublic; and on Dec. 21, 1872, the Assembly voted the restitution of the pro- perty of the Orleans family. On Aug. 5, 1873, the Comte de Paris had the celebrated interview at Frohsdorf with the Comte de Cham- bord, whom he acknowledged as the head of the Boyal House of France. After the death of the Comte de Chambord (Aug. 24, 1883), the great majority of the Legitimists acknowledged the Comte de Paris as his successor. A remarkable article, entitled *' L'Allemagne et ses Tendances Nouvelles," which appeared in the Rev^te dea Deux Monde$, in Aug., 1867, and attracted considerable attention, is said to have been written by the Comte de Paris. He is also the author of "Les Associations Ouvri^res en Angleterre," Paris, 1869, an English translation of which, by N. J. Senior, M.A., was published the same year at London, under the title of "The Trades Unions of England ; " and of " Histoire de la Guerre Civile en Am^rique," vols. i. and ii., Paris, 1874. The fifth and sixth volumes of this work appeared in 1883.
