day, at Metz, IJazaine made a feint on
Mercy La Hunt, and attempted to escape
to Thionville. There was a heavy can

LoNDox.Sept. 20. A special correspond
ent at Rouen sends to-day particulars of
the action reported from Pontraz. It was
an important engagement and resulted in
a complete defeat of the Pruss-ians. The
action was fought cn the line ot the Or
leans Railroad, beyond Epinay Station,
sixteen miles from Paris. A column of
10,000 Prussians advancing from Spence,
two miles on the plateau of Longuinean,
attacked the French forces, interior in
number, but occupying a formidable posi
tion above or near Trettle. which com
manded the road to Brlain.Yilliers.Cuchet
and Lacles Charleau. The attack began
at ! a. m. The French forces, mainly con
sisting of Gardes Mobile, with a battalion
of line, put six mitrailleurs in position.
The French retreated under cover of the
woods, and drew the Germans on until
they were brought into range of the
masked batteries, which opened on them
suddenly with tremendous effect. The
Prussian column was cut, and the French,
charging on their Hank, drove the frag
ments in hurried retreat down a steep and
rapid descent beyond the town of Loutch
ery. toward Corbels and Louis. There
the Germans attempted to make a stand
and reform, but the French artillery Avhich
had been brought up by the cross roads
of the country here opened ou them again
with more effect than before. The retreat
was converted into a route, and the Ger
man troops lied in all directions, throwing
away their arms. .. The French captured
all of their artillery, batteries and cannon,
with , two regimental standards. Between
oOO und 700 men, ,vho surrendered in a
body, were sent next day to Chartres.
Among the prisoners are two Colonels of
the Prussian line, and a number of Saxon

This is the universal conviction through

Bologne telegraphs that exciting news is
received from Rouen, ot the defeat of the
Crown prince on the south and west side
of Paris, by the army of Generals Ducrot
and Menden, on the 27th. The French
were reinforced on Monday bv General
Trochu and advanced on the German po
sition at Metreail and Versailles. Early
on Tuesday morning the battle began at
Niceroy and Yetesey. The Germans con

ate energy, till they were assailed by a
fresh column through Bois de Fansses,
Reposes and Vauresson. when a number
ot regiments ot jjacien troops muunieu on
the battle field and refused to go under
fire. Nearly one hundred men of these
troops were shot by order of the German
commander, but the rest still held back,
many throwing down their arms and dis
persing through the forests. The Crown
Prince was finally compelled to order a
retreat upon Bongival. abandoning Ver
sailles to the victorious French. The Ger
man columns which attempted the pas
sage of the Seine at Bongival, were kept
under a terrible fire from Mont Valerian,
which converted the retreat into a route
and they were driven beyond St.
Germain. Night alone stopped the pur
suit. The Germans lost 5.000 prisoners,
araong whom were many officers of the

In deploring omc of ?he hard
ships of his boyhood, Mark Taiii
pat helically regrets that he could
not have been the "father of Ids'
parents" long enough to show
them how certain things felt."
Doubtless one of the chief diffi
culties in the way of bringing up
children well and wisely is that',
the father and mother utterly fail
to remember how things felt to
themselves. Viewed through the
spectacles of mature age, chil
dren's disappointments seem very
trifling and unimportant. What
great difference can it make to
Sam whether he has his ball to-day
or to-morrow and if Xclly gets
her crouqnet set next week Avhy
shouldn't it answer just as well as
this, even if the Bliss girls do
come to pass the afternoon with
her in the meantime? But if
father and mother could go back
thirty years would they not run
afoul of some heart-aches for
causes which seemed to their lather
and mother just as unimportant?
The worth of a thing to one who
desires it cannot be estimated by
dollars and cents. The yoiing
will have to learn the lesson of
patince, which bitter disappoint
ment teaches, all through . their
coming lives again and again."
