men-of-war which escaped the French bom

with no mishap. The French recommenced
firing Sunday, directing then- shots against
the pagodas. It is surmised that the object
of the renewed attack Is to entirely .obliter
ate the place. French transports are shell
ing the vlllazes on the heights around tho
arsenal. Admiral Cocrbct opened fire at
two p. a. and the Chinese answered
almost simultaneously. The dock
yard arsenal fired Immediately, bat
with only partial success. The eleven ves
sels forming the Chinese fleet were merely
light river and roast transimrts and were in
reality toys. The French had eight heavily
armed ships, namely, the Volta, Duzay,
Troaln, Dclavine, Aspic, Vlperr, Louis and
Yillars. Several Chinese gunboaii main
tained bravely a desultory fire for about a
quarter of an hour, when the survivors of
their crews leaped overboard. Tha
combat was practically finbhed in seven
minutes. The superiority of the French
artillery mads the contest ot her dis
ables ot the Chinese vessels no fi'ht It
was a massacre. This Is the opinion ot
every spectator. Two eight ton gunboats of
the Chinese fleet fousht well, one sinking
near the English man of war Champion,
while the other was stationed about the
Junks and made a good stand. The French
kept up tho fre on the arsenal 'and neigh

Chinese Minister. Baron De Courcedwas

was received by the German Consul from
Frankfort on the Main: "A great theft of
valuable Austrian Government bonds has
taken place. The list of securities (s on tho
way to you. Have it posted on thiiExchange."
The consulate officers have no further In
formation ot the matter nor have the nank-
rrs who make a specialty of continental se
curities, any information as to the manner
and amomit of the robbery. Those visited
