THE CHOICEST AXD BEST OF XLES. WISES

Tho I'orts of I'arhs.
From the Lon a Illustrated Xews.
The city of Paris, situated between tbe confluents
of the ilarne, tbe Oise, aud tbe Seine, In the mldet
of a wide plain, is divided into two nneqaul parte
uj the river, from 200 feet tu 00 feet In breadth,
which runs from ca6t to nest, forming, an arc of
a circle. On the rh;ht bank of tbe Seine, the height
of which is abont eight; fee, above the level of the
eta, rife the hills of Jlontmartre, S94 feet in height;
of Belleville, 311 feet in height; of Jlenllmontant,
and of Cbarunnc. On the left.bank ate tbe heights
of Mont Valerein, 405 feet; of St. Cloud, SOO feet;
o( Sevres, Mtudon,.and Is sv. The northern portion
ol Paris Is the largest. Twenty-ouc bridges keep
up the communications. The form of the citj may
be compared to an ellipse, somewhat flattened on
tbe right 6lde, the Jongcrails, of nhlch is about nine
miles. According to the census of 1S0C, Paris has
1,835,274 inhabitants, and about 90,000 bouses.
Since 1S11, under the reign of Louis Philippe and
tbo wluUery of M- Tliirrs, Paris "fcas bcin fortified.
An immediate capture of this town, like that of
1514 and 1BI5 by tbe Allies, has become an impossi
bility. The systematic reconstruction of the interior
of the c)ty, which Napoleon III, bos caused to be
executed by the late Prefect of tbe Seine, M. Ilauss
rnann, may be regarded as completing the works of
fortifications. The lortiflcatlous of Paris consist of
a surrounding wall, fortified, formed of a military
road, a rampart, ditches, and a glacis. Eighty-five
bastions, all nearly of tbe same shape, and other ad
vanced points, are destined to cover theoutcrcxtent
of the moats, which can be lilled with the waters of
the Seine. Tbe escarpment Is' lined with a wall,
which is covered by tbe glacis. The military road
Is paved. Near to this, and frequently parallel to it,
is the line which Jolusall Ihe railway lines running
into Paris, and their eight termini. Sixty-six gates,
close to which ore placed the Bureaux du Douane,
are pierced In the fortifications. Outside the sur
rounding wall, and nt a distance of about half a
league, are fifteen detached' forts.' includlng Yln
cennes, which arc united partially by redoubts and
intrenchments to the walla. " ' '
The-detached exterior forts may be considered In
(firee groups. "VYe may first notice the group that
forms tbe north-east line of these qutelde fortifica
tions, from St. Denis fo the north'orIontmartre.
The town of St Dculs alonc( is surrounded by three
great forts. On the left of, and "closeho tho railway,
leading to Engblcn and Montmorency, and behind
the roufluencc of the canal of St. Denis with the
Seine, Is the fort of La Brlcbc ; to the north, and on
tbe other side of the stream of Rouilloo, is the fort
oi "La Double Couronne du Nord;" and on the
south-east Is tbe fort of the East. These three
points aro united together by ramparts and ditches
"Which can be readily filled, aud which arecovercd by
the redoubt of Slalns. St. Denis itself may there
fore be considered u fortress. At 4,000 paces to be
south-cast of the eastern fort, aud consequently
nearer to Paris, Is the fort of Aubervillicia. Between
tbe two, passes tbe railway to Soissons, and behind
this line is the canal ol St. Denis. The t artli which
was dug uut of the canal forms before it a sort of
parapet, fortified by three redouhts. At a distance
of 4,200 paces from the other side of the Canal de
l'Onrcq and of the Strasbourg railway, on the con
tinuation of the height or Belleville by Pandln, Is
the fort of Komalnvllle. It Is 1,600 paces from the
principal wall ol defence. Asetesof iutrcnchmcnls
extends from tbe fort towards the Canal da l'0urcq
while on the ojlier side two redoubts defend tbe
Furtltor o to tlic et and tq the Buutb, allll on
the outer side of tbe same line of hills, and alinoet
in a line parallel to tbo railway to Mulbonse, the
works, of the forllflcallons, which are united by a
paved road, are continued at about equal distances,
the foits or Noisy, (3,500 paces, Hosny, (3,200
paces,) and Nogent, (3.80Q paces.) There ends the
line of bills which begius near Belleville, and de
scends by a steep Incline towards the Murne. Be
tween the above named forts are placed at short
Intervals the redoubts of Noisy, Moutrcuil, Bois
siere, nnd Fonlenay. Tbo Marne, which Isjiere 100
pact's in breadth, forms a natural delense, fortified
also by an intrcnebment 2,800 feet in length, con
sisting pi a parapet and ditches covering the isthmus
of St. Maur, where a bridge .crosses the Marne. The
two extremities of the lntrencbment are flanked by
the redoubts ofFaisandcric and Grnvelle. These the
railway of Vincennes and La Varcnne passes. All
these works Inclose, in a semi-circle, tbe castle o'
Vincennes, in which Is the principal arscual oi
Paris, on the edge of the great field for manoeuvring
artillery, close to tbe Marne. On tbe other bank nf
this river, in the triangle formed by the union of the
Seine and tbe Manic, near Alfort, on the right side
of Ihe Lyons railway, is the,fort of Charenton,
which closes tbe first line of defense. What adds
to its strength is that the cuclcntc Inclosed by tbe
forlificaliqns answers admirably for an entrenched
camp, in which 200,000 men may be placed.
The iiext group of detached forts to be described
is that of those ormlug the southern line of exterior
defences. Opposite to fort Charenton, and at a dis
tance of 4,000 paces, on tbe left ban of the Seine,
begins the southern line, with Ibe fort of Ivry,
which commands tbe neighborhood. In a straight
line, nearly from east to west, tbe forts of tlicetre,
Montrouge, Vannes and Issy, follow at equal dis
tances of about 3,000 paces. Tbe last named rises
to a height of about fifty feet above the level of tbe
Seine, which here leaves the city. Between them
are tbe railways of Limours (Sceaux,) and of Ver
sailles (left bank.) The threc last points are covered 1
since the introduction of rifled cannon, which were
not known nt tbe time of the building of these forts,
by the heights of Bairneux and Meuduu.
The third group of detached forts arc those on the
western side of I'aals."" This lino of outside defense
is naturally very easy, for the Seine, flowing In tbe
direction ol ttits north and norh-casl, turns toward
St. Deuis by St. Cloud, Boulogne, Surcnues, Pu
teaux, Courbevole, Neullly, Asnclres, Clicby, and
St. Oucn, places on tbe bank of the river. Between
it aud tbe town Is the celebrated Bols dc Boulogne.
On the line indicated, five bridges cross tbe Seine,
and near the station of Asnlercs, on the left bank,
the railways from Dieppe, Normandy, St. (Jermaln,
and Versailles (right bank,) nniteand cross the river
by a common bridge. A single fort, btjt the largest
and strongest of them all, that of Mont Yalerien,
situated 415 feet above the leTcl of the Seine, and
from which there Is a magnificent view of the city
of Paris, commands the whole of this epacc. A
paved road joins Mont Valerien with tbe Bois de
Boulogne, by the bridge of Snrennes.
We have spoken of the fort at Mont Valerien.
Tbe distance between this fort and the nearest of
those about St. Denis, is 16,500 paces, or nearly
seven milts; and the distance from the fort of Issy
is about 10,000 paces, or abont four miles. It is
clear that at this point there is a great gap In the
system of defense. Tbe report of tbe Minister on
August 8, seems to allude to this circumstance. It
is there stated that tbe special committee for the
armament of tbe fortifications of Paris bas noted
the existence of important gaps In tbe line of de
fense, but that they would immediately put In band
tbe execution of certain tvorh. t'io plans for which
bad Just been agreed to. "i important gaps"
Just referred to are on tbe side ui tbe valley of tbe

between Mont Valerien and the sides of Mendon.

cations. The greatest distance is that between Mont
Valerien aud tbe Fopt de Nogent It fallows exactly
tbe parallel, and at a distance of 27,000 paces, or
nearly eleven miles; while in tbe southern direction,
tie greateet distance, between St. Denis aad tie
Fort Bicetre, is 20,000 paces, or eight miles. The
line of circumference which would Join the exterior
forts would be twenty-six mlles.o twelve and

All ibe exterior forts have bastions. Further, tue

as those of tbe fortifications of Paris; covered ways,

Surrender of MtraMbour.
Stra SBOCRO, Sept- 27th. On Tuesday afternoon
tbe Joyful sight of tbe white flag was beheld, flying
from tbe cathedral. This was followed br tho same
welcome of surrender from the cltadeL.,, Firing In
stantly ceased. A universal cheer arosefrom ona
portion of tbe besieging lines, which was soon
caught bp and echoed throughout the army. The
scene which followed was Indescribable; excited of

The terms of capitulation as agrfed, have already
been reported. Yesterday I was fortunately enabled
to enter the city with a Baden regiment. Tbe sight
of the city was Impressive, and sad at the same time.
I was relieved by the evident joy of ttie: citizens at
their release from their terrible condition of suffer

the meeting took place just -Inside, n gate In the east

and with a voice much agitatod said, I here yielded
to an Irresistible force, when further resistance was
only reckless sacrifice of the lives of brave men. I

an honorable enemy." General Werder was much af
fected, and placed both hands on Ulrich's shoulder,
and said, "You fonght bravely; you will have as
much honor from the enemy as you can have from
your own countrymen." ,
All arms were surrendered except officers side
arms. A hasty examination Of a portion of the city
showed that it had not suffered as much as was sup
posed. Tbe exterior of tbe Cathedral appears much
injured, but not sufficiently to prevent Its restora
tion in the original shape. Some five bquscs tn
Place du Cathedral are burned, and the ruins of build
ings show the danger to which the city was -exposed.
In the vicinity of the Cathedral, op tbe cast
side of tbeclty, tbedestrucllon was great. A singu

ceivable means of stopping unwelcome visitors, from

them the appearance of a general removal of the in

lic library. I am informed the books were previous
ly removed, or at least those of the greatest value.
It does not appear there bad been much actual suf
fering for want of food, though means were husband
ed with tbe greatest care. Tbe principal cause of
anxiety was tbe confinement and won't of good wa
ter. Several cases of mortality ore reported as the ef
fects of tbe bombardment, but I am Inclined to be
lieve the accounts aro exaggerated. One iainlly,
consisting of a father, two daughters, two yonng
sons and an infant had takcu refuge in a cellar of
their house, when the residence was struck by a,
shell, and all were destroyed. One old gentleman,
a business merchant In Strasbourg for many years,

street. Tbe feeling of tbe people Is onoof general
thankfulness for tbe capitulation.
Reports that are spread, charging Ulrich with bru
tality, are destitute of foundation. His conduct to
ward tbe clllzeus, was marked 'vlth the greatest hu
manity and consideration.
A cable dispatch from London, to the New York
Herald says : Your correspondent writes from Ber

An ofllcerwho bad not quitted General de Wlmpf

On that morning the Prussians, having terminated
their movement, attacked us nn our right, in order
to drive ns on tbe fresh troops who awaited our des
