The carnival.

"Cars and carriages containing groups of madly joyous persons, usually connected with the theaters, are seen galloping along the boulevards, flinging sugar-plums at the passengers, and crowning the pleasures of the day by what is termed the descente de la Courtille; after issuing from the masked balls at daybreak the following morning, to breakfast at some of the inferior cafés beyond the Boulevard du Temple, commonly called the quarter of La Courtille; — an extraordinary scene, which few respectable persons have witnessed.”

Eugène Lami, from Paris in 1841, by  Catherine Gore, London, 1842.
