-An interesting debate occurred on Wednes?
day m the French Corps L?gislatif. The new
project of law for the government of the press
was the subject of discussion. M. Thiers, in f
speech of great power in opposition to the law,
urged the importance of allowing entire free
lom to the press, exoept only in oases whero
the sanctity of private life or the acts of foreigr.
magnates are concerned. In eloquent term j
be warned the government not to allow tho
opportunity to pass of bestowing privileges
apon the press, lae neglect of which has cost
tue ruin of so many dynasties. M. Pinard, in
reply, deprecated tho granting of any further
liberty to the press, and in the course of his
remarks said that since concessions were pro?
posed a year apo, the French journals have
proved unmiBtakcably their entire unfitness fur
the liberty which their advocates profess to d<y
aire to secure.
-The Paris Entr'acte publishes the details
ot the new engagement of Mlle. Patti. She is

timo until the 1st of March, 1869, she will sing
tn St. Petersburg; than returning to Paris, she
will again re?ume her place at the Italien, a .id
3ing until tho lBt of May. HaviDg concluded
this engagement, she will sail for America a od
bold the position of prima donna in a troupe
ander the joint management of Messrs. ~Jl
mann and Strakosch. Her stay in this country
trill be limited to four months.
-The impartiality of English justice finds
very strong vindication in the sentence of Sir
Duiling Eardley to imprisonment with hard la?
bor, for eighteen mouths, for bigamy. It -viii
be remembered that be married a lady in New
fork and afterward married another m Engl md
-pleading that he thought the first marriage
ivas not valid under English law.

inst. No mention is made of trouble with the
indians. The Russian Fur Company's effects
were sold for ?150,000. One of the new c olo
nists bad died of whiskey drinking.
CONVECTION HELD BY AUTHORITY OF THE
RECONSTRUCTION LAWS OF CONGRESS,
TO FRAME A STATE CONSTITUTION
FOR SOUTH CAROLINA.
Siturday last having been set apart as pay?
day, tho delegates, it is to be pres urned, wore
not in a frame of mind suitable for the grave
business of constitutional legislation. "Bills
receivable" were the only subject under discus?
sion. "Eleven dollars a day," the ever recur?
ring refrain. We learn that a considerable
amount of the commodity was sold at eighty
cents, und some at eighty-five cents, in green?
backs, purchased mostly By persons who de?
sire to pay their taxes in this currency. Tho
probability, as far as we can judge, is that this
is the highest price the conventionists will get
for their per diem, as the bills will certainly de?
preciate as more of them are thrown upon the
marke ,. At eighty cents in the dollar, the
membora netted $8.80, which will serve as a
margin for future depreciation.
The convention to-day will doubtless enter
upon its more serions work-reports of com?
mittees and what pertains more especially to
its fui.ctions, the making of a new Constitution
for tho State. The ordinance in regard to the
validity of "negro bonds'' will also be again
discussed to-day; and although many think
with Elim. Corley, that thc subject is one for
the courts rather than for the convention,
there are many of the parties interested who
look to this latter body for relief.

THE : IAD IC ALS AMD THE FINANCES-THE FOURTH
BEOONBTBUOTION BILL-THE PIRACY
The Washington correspondent of the Bal?
timore Gazette, under date of the 30th ultimo,
The Radicals aro at odds and ends upon the
financial question. Twenty different projects
at le ist are upon the tapis. Senator Hender?
son')! "plan," as it is called, contemplates an
abstluce repudiation of one-third of the pub?
lic d?bt, and deferred payment for half a cen?
tury. Mr. Pendleton's views have frightened
that portion of Congress not rabidly insane.
The Chronicle prints a letter this morning ot
J. W. F., which advises an indefinite increase
in tie circulation medium. This advice will be
followed; for, a fictitious prosperity-or rather
a delay in the final breaking dc wn of tb 3 pres?
ent system af finance and taxation-must be
inaugurated, or the people will rise in earnest,
per laps before the election, and demand the
summary dethronement of the imbecile des?
pots who now rule th?. r?it:tfrv1 Forney fur?
ther states that "a tonnguisheTr-mwJb'mt.
not? ia Washington, referring to this impor?
tant subject, Bays that the expression by Con?
gress of a determination to pay the five-twen
tiei. in gold, would undoubtedly be received as
a proclamation m favor of the rich bondhold?
er 1" Does the wind now lie in that quarter?
He then endorses Henderson's "plan,'' which
he mincingly characterises os "the consolida?
tion of the national securities into one long
lean, payable in gold, but at a somewhat re?
eta sea rate of interest 1 Was eyer such tergiver?
sation exhibited before by political leaders?
Wits there ever a clearer admission of utter
fai ure in statesmanship ?
The Radical leaders in the Senate have de?
termined by caucus vote not to allow action on
tho Reconstruction bill until atter tho Alabama '
:1c ?tions. Mr. Wilson declared to a friend last
wining that such was the understanding, as
t would not do to tako the vote on the bill in 1
td rance of the election in Alabama-it might !
e: mit ia a defeat of their Radical allies in thac
5t.ite. Thus is everything made to yield to j
>arty purposes, and the great interests of thc :
:oan try are entirely i ten o red. '
The Washington correspondent of tho New j
fork Times, under date of the 29th ult., 1
The present status of the Reconstruction bill .
r the Senate is rather anomalous. It is not
.nally before it, yet a great debate is going 011
[he bill came in from the HouBe, and a motion
vas made to refer it to the Committee on the
Judiciary. Mr. Doolittle moved to amend that *
notion to refer with instructions to report, his .
imendment limiting suffrage by certain quali
: .cations of property and intelligence. On this
notion he made his big speech, and others fol- ;
[owed. So we are likely to have a douolo dose
if talk on the subject, and tho disposition of !
?he question is very tar from a conclusion.
An important case, involving tho question
vhether the rebel Sommes' acts were piracy or '
lot, is now undergoing argument in the Su- 1
Drome Court. The case is that of the ship 1
oolden Rocket, the first vessel destroyed by '
3 emmes in his career as a rebel privateer, which
?ras insured under an ordinary marine risk, in?
cluding dangers of piracy. The owners brought '
wit against the insurance companies to recov?
ar, on the ground that the act was one of piracy,
rho Supremo Court of tho State of Maine, whore [
me case was carried, decided against tho 0 wu?
rra and in favor of the companies, on the
?round that the act was one of war. The caso
.8 now appealed to the Supremo Court ol the
United 8 ta tes. An important fact brought for?
rard to sustain the cause of the appellants is,
that the proclamation of Great Britain which ;
ioncedecl belligerent rights to the rebels, pro?
vided that their prizes must be brought into
some neutral port and disposed of in the prize
courts of Buch country. This was never done
by any of the rebel cruisers.
INDIAN BATTLE TN TEXAS-ONE THOUSAND
SAVAGES ATTACK CAMP LANOASTEB_A letter
dated San Antonio, Texas, January 11th, says :
Dispatches just received hero state that a
severe Indian battlo was fought at Camp Lan?
caster on tho 27th of December. Camp Lan?
caster is two hundred and forty milos north?
west of this place, on tho Rio Pecos, and is
garrisoned by a company ol' colored cavalry
belonging to tho command of Gouerol Hatch.
The Indians, about cue thousand ?Iron?,
attacked tho camp at 4 o'clock P. M., while tho
company were watering their horse.?. In the
dash three men were killed, a number wound?
ed, and thirty horsed captured; but the colored
soldiers retreated in good order to the post,
where, getting their Spencer carbines, they
furiously assaulted the savages, driving them
into the old post works near the camp, where
the fight lasted until late in the night, when
the Indians gave way in confusion. On tho
night of the 28th tho Indians renowed tho
attack, but were repulsed with great slaughter,
leaving the ground strewed with bows, airows,
guns, blankets, coats, pistols and knives, but
carrying off all their dead and wount'ed.
This is the first pitchod engagement tho
colored troops have had with tho Indians, and
Lt ie not likely thc savages will bother UM m
soon again. Tho negroes fought with a savage
desperation that astonished tho red men, who,
no doubt, thought they could easily capturo
the pout and its small garrison.
PASSENGER CABS BURNED ON THE EME RATL
BOAD.-On Saturday evening, just after tho
second Suffcrns train had passed out of the
tunnel, a kerosene lamp exploded in tho last
car, which happened to bo thesmoking car of tho
Hackonsack line attached, and which was about
half filled with passengers. Tho whole front
of thc car was iustautly in flames, and tho
passengers crowded to the rear in terror, hoing
unable to pas? through into tho other cars in
front. Tho flames spread so rapidity that, be?
fore the train could bc stopped, half tho vein
cle was enveloped, and tho gentlemen tum?
bled pell-mell from tho platform not an instant
too soon, as the fire followed the varnish as
though it had been burning fluid. By thc
time the train came to a stand, it was on tho
meadows, and the front of the car was burn?
ing BO fiercely that difficulty was experienced
in uncoupling it from thc train. The heat was
intense, and the burning mass could not be
readily removed firm the track. The later
trains were delayed, and tho night express
was an hour behind, tho passengers watch?
ing the workman, who at last tumbled the
truel? from tho track, the car itself being en?
tirely consumed. Two gentlemen, who were
near the forward end of the car, where the
mas? of tho fluid was thrown by the explosion,
wera burned about their faces, and had their
whitkers Binged.-New York Iribune,

grain silk, skirt gored and trained, and white
lace epaulets and white lace collar, was recent?
ly worn at a fashionable reception. Over this
was thrown a black lace shawl, aud the lady's
hair was ornamented with white chrysanthe?
A protty dress, for home wear, made for a
little gill between two and three years old, is
of blue merino, the skirt plaited into a square
yoko and belted down at tho waist by a sash,
with bow and ends at the back. A pretty vine
embroidered with whito, runs around the bot?
tom just above the hem, and the yoke and sash
ends are wrought in designs to match.
A pretty suit for an older child is a dress and
loose sack of blue, embroidered with white.
Scarlet merino, also embroidered with white,
make attractive suits for children. For the
little ono just attempting to walk, there is on
exhibition a beautifully embroidered white
maslin tireen, the neck and arms trimmed with
In wraps for street wear there is no material
change. Loose Backs-richly trimmed, and
often confined at the back by a ribbon sash,
with bow and ends-are much worn. Bat the
newest style is tbe closely-fitting pelisse, and
that combines a short dress and outdoor coat,
and ia very becoming to a good figure. A sash,
usually made of rich colorod Bilk, is worn
around tbe waist, and the skirt is about the
same length as the upper skirt of a walkinc
suit. Some have these pelisses trimmed with
fur, bat they are pretty with no trimming.
When these pelisses are worn over a silk skirt
of Borne contrasting color, the effect is strik?
ing. For young ladies' jackets of velvet,
trimmed with for, are fashionable.
An elegant, thongh costly, costume was no?
ticeable on the street recently. The short walk?
ing dress was of velvet, and made double skirt;
each one having a straight band of sealskin,
four inches wide, round the botton. The hat
and loose sack were aleo of sealskin. Sealskin
bonnets; also, those made of white for, are
mach worn this season in Europe.

THE BANKRUPT LAW. -Tho Bankrupt law has
now been in operation over six months. The
first case of a final discbarge of a bankrupt
which wo havo seen noticed, took place the
other dny in a d strict in another State. Thus
far, in Pennsylvania, we believe no bankrupt
has been discharged. How long the proceed?
ings are to last, upon an average, and what will
be the general cost to the bankrupt and to the
estate are yet, we presumo, to be ascertained.
One of the moe t oppressive features in this act
will be its slo wnosB, which is a loss to debtors,
creditors, and to the community. Very few
bankrupts will be able to do mach work while
waiting the slow progress of the hw, and the
time which they lose in enduring the law's de?
lay is generally a sacrifice of industry. Under
these circumstances, it is not strange that, in
the constitutional convention of Arkansas, the
other day, a resolution was offered to the effect
that the Bankrupt law onght to be amended, so
that it should be only necessary to file a sched?
ule, ??c., in the clerk's office to get a release.
This would be a short and easy process in the
now way to pay old debts. The only wonder
is what tho convention of Arkansas has to do
with tho subject, unless, indeed, we reflect
that the members truly represent the interests
of the people of the State, who are all bank?

RENTS DJ NEW YOES.-A New York letter

Broadway ivftg have been outrageously high
for four years,' aud while business was lively,
the high figures were paid without a grumble.
But the prospect this year is gloomy, and mer?
chants will not pay (in fact cannot.pay) the ex?
orbitant rents that landlords have bean get
ling for some years past. Several vacant
stores aro to be seen on Broadway now, and
there will be mo-e before Maren. Union
Square is filling up fast with business houses,
but it will bo fivo years before a paying trade
gathers around that neighborhood. A new
Building at the corner of University Place and
Fourteenth-street has been leased for ten
years,, at a yearly rent of $21,000, by a dry
goods firm; and it is rumored that Lord &
Taylor have leased the Maison Doree, the
scene of the great dry goods failure a few
weeks ago, and will soon open it, and start an
tip-town opposition to Stewart. They will find
it uphill work to compoto with the great mil?

My wife having received so much benefit from your

very severe attack of Dy sunbry, or Bloody Flux,
which became chronic, and continued for the above
