War News. The news from the two
great cations of Europe now at war, daily
increases in interest. Prussia, by her
unparalleled energy, shows that she has
no superior aruong the great cations of
the earth. In the space of two weeks
rhc has Calk-d a million of men to arms,
equipped them, and sent 800,000 sol
diers into France in one body a feat
that was ueTer before accomplished by
any tuition on earth. She hurls this
immense body of troops upon th French
lines, greatly to the surprise and terror
of the latter, and the valient French sol
diers, commanded by such renowned
warriors as Gen. McMahon, are crushed
and destroyed. Everywhere, so far, the
Prussians have bceu victorious. Ia the
meantime Paris, the head-center of
France, is in great . tribulation. The
French are furious at the. news that the
''Dutciirueii" are whipping the French on
their own grounds, and lay their eternal
disgrace to the want of capacity in their
Emperor, Napoleon. It is believed in
Paris that the rule of .the Bonapartes is
over that tho scepter will go into other,
aud it may be hoped, better hands. We
can sec but oiie hope for Napoleon
ehould he Oht at Melz and win, ho
would probably again bo the the idol of
French people ; and so long as the French
irruv was victorious, so long would con
tinue his popularity. Should he risk a
trreat battle and be defeated, he will be
forced from the throre of France.

The Chicago Republican takts this
view of the war :
"The "aggressive policy of Prussia" bo
much harped on by the Democratic press
of this country, consists in efforts to put
stop to French invasions by, establish
ing the unity of Germany. It ia the same
kind of "aggression" committed by the
lamb in the drinking out of the stream
below the wolf, who was accused of mud
dying the water. The lamb was net able
to see how the dirty water could run up
stream, and was at once "invaded" for
bis Isci of knowledge of French hydro
statics. "Prussian aggression" consists in the
people oi that country mindir?g their own
business, and lcttias France alone. Hut
Napoleon sets up in justification that
Prussia may get powerful enough to be
come aggressive, and if it does not, will
et least prevent France from committing
agressions upon it, which is not to be
thought of, and is good ground for ffar.
Uniting Germany into a great, compact
cation, is where the "aggression" makes
its appearance. The Prussian lamb must
not drink from the Rhine, for fear it vi ill
muddy the wolf s water on the Seine.
That is the Bouaparte logic
In a slate of peace the South German
countries have an independent existence,
bat during war they become practically a
part of the Prussian Power. War, then,
effectively joins South Germany to the
North German Union. And thi6 is the
reaton why war may be regarded without
displeasure at Berlin ; for when war has
once added these South German States
to Prussia we may trust Bismarck that
they will never be free again.
A native of Rhinish Prussia writes to
M. Garnier de Cassagnac that the Ger
man people on the left bank of tho Rhine
do sot desire annexation to France, and
that "before conquering that section the
French must destroy the armies and peo
ple of the German Confederation a
rather difficult matter." M.de Cassagnac
replies that there is a chance of only two
alternatives "either France will go to
the Rhine,, or Prussia will go to the

The French Mitralleur is a light 37
barreled gun, arranged that its barrels
may be discharged simultaneously or
consecutively. Tho cartridges are con
tained in a box; a steel plate with cor
responding holes, is placed on the box,
whioh is then reversed, aud the cart
ridges fall point foremost in their re
spective holes, being prevented from
falling through by the rims at their ba
ses. The loaded plate is then introduced
into the breech-elot, and when the breech
is closed by a lever," a number of steel
pins, pressed by spiral springs, are only
prevented from striking the percussion
arrangement ia the cartridges by a plate
in front of them. When Ibis case ' is
moved slowly by a handle, the cartridges
are fired one by one. . If the plate be
withdrawn rapidly they follow each other
so quickly that their discharge is all but
simultaneous. Tho invention seems very
well adapted for use io forts or other
permanent places ot aeiense or onense,
but its carriage and management in the
field would present many and insuperable
obstacles to its general use.
"Italy" said a celehated Austrian
statesman, interrogatively, in the haugh

four Kingdoms and half a dozen petty
duchies, with a province or two belonging
to outside Powers. To-day she is all
united from the Alps to the end of the
boot in one government, excepting the
State which will recognize the Sover
eign Pontiff as their solo supreme tem
poral ruler. Her population now, even
with that exception remembered, is about
27,000,000 souls, and her superficial area
more than 100,000 square miles. 'Her

In many places the road is flanked by

ache are cured with a few applications. If you
have a discbarge from tho nose, offensive or oth
erwise, stopping up tbo noso at times, partial loss
of tho sense of smell, tasto or hearing, eyes water
ing or weak, feel dull, bare pain or pressure in
the bead, you may rest assured that you have
Catarrh. Thousands annually, without manifest

Consumption and end in tbe grave. No disease

by physicians. I "will send my pamphlet on Ca
tarrh to any address free. Dr. Sage's Catarrh
