A Remarkable Corv Crop. In the Missouri

Scioto, and Miami ! They are a barren waste
compared with our Missouri Bottoms. If any
body " wants the documents," Mr. Rodney can
furnish them in the certificates of his neighbors
and Mr. Clark, to whom he sold the corn, and in

j The Prussians have a new device for gettin"
! correct i16t8 of the killed. Every Prussian is to
. carry his name with hnn on a piece of parchment.
and attach it to ins uuitorm when going into ac
tion. These parchments will be collected from
the dead who are buried on the battle field, and
the enemy will also be requested to collect them,
if he should remain master of the field, and return
them by flue of truce. Machines have already
cut the 940,000 pieces of parchment which are
wanted, and numerous hands have copied
i contents oi the rolls on these parchments.
The French View of the Situation.
The Constitutidnnel says the array of the Prince
j Royal, reinforced by part of the army of Frederick
Charles, is marching on Paris, through the val
leys of Aubc and Seine. Ihe Prussians must
know how adventurous is such an attempt, and
be aware of the ciil into w hich they are leading
their main amiy. McMahon may cut off their
communication, and place them between two
fires. To avoid this danger the Prussians have
made great efforts. Ti.ey three times attacked
linzaine, with overwhelming forces, which the
French army successfully resisted. The enemy
then, despairing of being able to conquer him,
decided to keep Bazaine checked, and march on
Paris. From Paris to Seirck, the nearest point on
the German frontier, is more than 100 leagues.
This line tho Prussians must defend against our
armies and numberless sharpshooters, and the
Garde Mobile. To be able to subsist on our ter
ritory, the 000,000 invading Prussians must
extend their lines vastly, and must disperse their
forces a thing so fatal to us in the commence
ment of the campaign. 44 Our revenge," says
the Constitutionnel, in concluhion, 44 is near."

magnificence attempted in the Prussian army,
and even the generals are very simply clad. The
King, however, ou this occasion, wore numerous
orders and a glittering sword, the hilt of which
blazed with jewels. The stairs of the station bad
been carpeted richly, and tapestry decorated the
ceiling. Along the entrance was ranged a double
row of servants, some clad in livery such as few
courts donate to their menials. Immense coats,
almost robes, huge cocked hats and plenty of lace
and feathers made these servants look like the
beadles of a French church. The Queen, who
accompanied King William to the levee, is a thin,
nervous looking woman, weighed down by years
and illness, and evidently caring very little for
the splendors of court or its duties.

strong intellects of the rrcnen army interior ro
none iu tne Crimea, save, pernaps, oniy io aoo
tleben. Wc liave already given some account of
his soldierly qualiti. In personal appearance
he is dcsciibed as being of middle size, elegant in
figure, but strong and rinewy. He has a pleasing
countenance, full of intelligence, and his address
is quick, almost warm. He has a broad, thought
ful forehead, slightly bald; small eyes but so
brilliant and sparkling that they constitute a
remarkable feature. His hand is nervous though
small, and while his whole aspect is that of a
soldier, there is such absence of pretension that
one is not obliged to address him always as M. le
General. His army predilections have not hard

stronger views of duty. . His brother having died

news received yesterday that Bazaine has cut his
way through the Prussian lines, and the encour
aging complexion of the war news generally,
aroused the enthusiasm of our French citizens to
a much higher pitch than it has attained at any
previous period since the commencement of the
war. In the evening a procession was formed on
kparnv street, at the head of which was carried

the line of march occasionally cries were heard,
" A bas Napoleon !" " A bas FEmpire !" three
cheers for Bismarck, three cheers lor King Wil

dence of the French Consul on Ellis street, where
the band played one or two airs and a committee
entered the house to pay their respects to the
Consul. The Consulate was illuminated, but the
demands of the crowd for a speech proved una
vailing. Bulletin, Aug. 2Ath.
How they Know the Yankee.
An American tells this Btory of his foreign ex
One day last fall, in company with an eminent
clergyman of London, I was making my way
toward the Thames tunnel, when we were Btoppcd
by an iiinerent vender of pictures, who seemed to
know my companion :
" Buy Eome of these pictures of the public
buildings ot London, 6ir," said he, " and you
' can give them to your American friend to take
home with him.
1 was in a hurry, but my wonderment would
have stopped me if I had been running to a fire.
44 How in creation did you know I was an
American,'' I asked.
44 Why, I couldn't mistake that," the picture
seller replied, with a quiet laugh. 44 You're
American all over."
I purchased a picture and then asked him to

Well, if it were no5 for that ?
He glanced down at my feet.
44 Your boots would betray you.
.Americans wear square toes.
Well, what else ?
44 Your chin whiskers. Englishmen always
wear mutton-chop style."
Well, anything more.
44 If you won't be ofiended, 6ir?"
Not at all ; I am seeking for information.

able to know me for an American face ?
44 Certainly I should, as soon as 1 heard you
speak," the fellow triumphantly answered.
44 You Americans invariably commence every
sentence with a 4 well.' "
My English fiiend laughed long and loud at
the man's adroitness.

Peruvian Ladies at Home.
We will visit the family of one of Lima's
aristocracy the father, a leading Senator and
formerly Minister of War under Prado; the
lovely daughters, patterns of fashion, models of
beauty, and of the very elite of Lima society.
We open one of the many glass doors and find
ourselves in an inner hall, the floor set in mosaic
marble; a little Chole boy, asleep on a mat,
I comes to us, ana presenting our car a, we are

glass doors, into the drawing-room. Here we sit
in French chairs or sofas ol gilt and yellow satin

; hair braided down her back in plaits, is he may

to you, 6he removes her cigar, (spits on the
carpet, although it is a white velvet tapestry
ground), and folds you in both hands to her
matronly bosom, putting your head on her
shoulder and patting you sol tly on the back. If

rassed, but her perlect suavity ot manner soon
sets you at ease,
Clapping her hands, a servant
brings in native Iruits ana a Dottle of native
wine, and you are expected to partake of some
of them. If the daughter delays in coming the
opens the piano and plays you some of those old
national dances brilliant, yet sad ; minor, yet
so exciting ; that our lamented Gotlschalk so ad
mirably imitated in 44 Ojos Creoltos," &c. The
daughters never keep you long, but appear in
white wrappers and hair braided as the mother.
If you converse, they can speak a little French,
(some of them), but their knowledge of history
and geography is all confined to Peru. They
know nothing else, believe in nothing else, and
can seldom more than read and write. Yet while
they maintain 44 that other lands inay be beauti
ful, but give me Pert other cities, famous and
great, but I care for none but Lima," you are
charmed by their polished manner, the hearty
embrace they give jou on entering, the reception
and welcome they bestow upon you, the hos
pitality and absence of apology, and the charm
ing freedom and innocence of their address. They
all play (from ear mostly) and well, and without
urging. They dance as gracefully and naturally
as possible, and they urge you to repeat your
call or visit, with the most sincere expressions of
pleasure at your coming. The soft, languid black
eyes, the clear, olive complexion, the straight,
black hair all growing upon their heads in such
wonderful profusion the liquid, Spanish accent,
the perfect ease of their manner, all serve to
fascinate you, and you fail to observe that they
are perfectly illiterate and ignorant; that their
hands are often dingy, though covered with
diamonds ; and that the tiny foot peeping from
the trailing white wrapper has often no stocking,
(or a very dirty one), and a torn old elfpper.
