Tress despatches from 'Lonfloh,' d'escritimg the American prog
ress on Thursday and yesterday morning say 'that the tide of battle
oil the American front had drifted eastward from th previous fight
ing near Fere en-Tardenot's. "Hie town of CiergeV southeast of
Sergy, had proved a stumbling block' to the1 advance at that joint.
The town lies in a hollow And in this had collected ten feet of poison

when' the Americans reached the place! and the force split until the
valley of death was passed.
