3 Les journees sinistres our le clerge et les eglises de Paris en Avril-Mai 1871. Episodes emouvants et authentiques racontes a la jeunesse. Par l'auteur des a souvenirs de la terreur.
Paris Librairie Saint-Paul, (Ca. 1876) Soft Cover 
302 pages, illustrations, original wraps frayed, text is very good. An account of the massacre of Catholic priests and religious officials (including Archbishop Georges Darboy, Abbé Duguerry, Abbé Allard, Jesuit Fathers Ducoudray and Clerc) by the revolutionary party that took over Paris during the siege in 1870-71. From the preface: Les progres toujours croissants du socialisme et de l'antimilitarisme font entrevoir avec un certain effroi le possibilite d'une nouvelle commune et l'arivee au poivoir des anarchistes les plus violents. Beaucoup de bons esprits esiment que ces previsions et ces craintes ne sont ni pueriles ni prematurees. Une guerre, une crise industrielle, un moment de faiblesse chez ceux qui nous gouvernent, un evenement bien plus insigifiant encoire peuvent rompre l'equilibre social et assurer le triomphe des ennemis de l'ordre. Aussi paratt-il non moins opportun qu'interessant de rappeler les exploirs des "communards" de 1871, de montrer comment ils sont parvenus a leurs fins et par quelle serie d crimes, de brigandages, de cruantes, de profanations ils ont illustre dans n'importe quelles annales une histoire plus terrifiante et qui porte avec elle de plus salutaires enseignements. il suffit de parcourir les sommaires de ce recueil pour juger de l'immense interet qui s'attache a ces recits, ou cedependant tout est de la plus reigoureuse authenticite. Une foule de peresonnes ne connaissent de la Commune que le massacre des otages: ce n'est la que la millieme partie des forfaits commis par les Raoul Rigault, les Ferre et leurs nombreux subalternes. Du reste, nous ne dirons rien ici de ces evenements deja connus de tous: l'emprisonnement des victimes, leur transfert, la barbare et atroce execution de Mgr Darboy, l'incendie des Tuileries, la lutte entre les federes et les Versaillais, etc.; notre role est plus modeste: nous avons toujours cherche de preference les episodes ou menus details encore generalement ignores, et, en ayant soin de restreindre nos informations au Clerge, aux religieux et aux eglises, nous avons pu reunir eune enorme gerbe de faits, toujours curieux, emouvants, dramatiques, souvent plaisants et bizarres, - car dans l'histoire de la Commune la drolerie, l'excentricite, la plate betise coudoient presque toujours la tyrannie fanfaronne et la cruate sacreilege. On poufferait de rire en presence de ces grotesques personnages si leurs horribles attentats ne devaient plutot faire verse des larmes de la sang. La lecture des Journees sinistres prouvera une fois de plus combien sont vraies ces graves paroles d'Armand de Pontmartin: 'Le caractere dominant de cette Revolution a ete l'impite; mais, par une coincidence effroyable, le corps et l'ame perissaient en meme temps: en se declarant athee, la France cessait d'etre patriotique... Helas! les trois quarts des acleurs el des actrices de ce hideux melodrame sont prets a recommencer; lesevades n'attendent qu'un signal pour rentrer en scene; les provisions de petrole et de poudre ne sont pas epuisees; la bataille n'est que suspendue.... "amis de l'orre, amis de la France, prenex garde a vous! Il est temps encore de conjurer les malheurs qui menacent nos familles et notre patrie; n'attendez pas que la conflagration sociale devienne universelle et desormais sans remede!
