THE QUESTION OF WAH BETWEEN FRANCE AND
LONLON, September 13.-It is generally con?
sider ,d that the events of the last fortnight
havf made but little change in the political
con iition on the continent, either to lessen or
increase the chances of war. While on one
han? the press of Germany have assumed a
quieter tone and profess to be more confident
of peace, on the other hand it is known that
France has refused the formal demand made
by Chevalier Nigra, the Italian Ambassador,
for the recall of the French troops from Rome,
and at the same time i'rino 3 G ir pent i has
brought to Paris ?he proposal of Spain to
cement an alliance with France by send?
ing thirty thousand boldiers to Rome. This
proposition and the approaching interview
which ia shortly to take place at Bayonre
between the Emperor Napoleon and the Queen
of Spain are looked apon as foreshadowing an
alliance, the object of which is to rid Franco of
the caro ot the Holy See in case she ahould be
plunged into war; so, by this means, France, if
wi thoa. any other ally, could make Spain use?
ful. Rumors, too, are that several fighting
regiments have been recalled from Africa; that
General Lebocuf has been Bent on a special
mission to Germany, and that Prussia has de?
termined to annex the Gi and Duchy of Badf>n.
To add to the feeling of distrust in the perm a- 1
nence of peace, this feeling is faithfully mir
rored in Parie by a depression on the Bourse
and a consequent decline of rentes, and in tbe
diplomatic circles here the situation is pithily
summed up in these words : "No fear of war,
though it may begin tomorrow."
THE WORKINGMEN AND THE WAK.
BRUSSELS, September 15.-The International
Workings en's Congress has adjourned. The

workingmen to oppose war, and to use every
energy to promote the education of <?e poor.

[FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT. |
UNIONVTLLK, September ll.-Tho grand rati?
fication mass meeting, of which yon have been
apprised, came off this morning. Everybody
and hi] uncle was there. Althoogh tho weather
looked unpropitious and threatening, the peo
from all parts of this glorious old district
poured in until their number reached about
three thousand five hundred. The fair sex
came out in stronger force than at any other
meeting attended by your correspondent. At
ten o'clock the line wis formed in front of the
workshops, and the procession, headed by the
Greenville Brass Band, who had kindly volun?
teered their services, marched in excellent
order to a shady grove, where tho stage was
erected from which the orators of the day wei o

Arrived at the stand, this vast assemblage
took the seats provided for them. Tho chair?
man of the meeting, General Young, stated
plainly and forcibly the object of the gather?
ing, advised unity of action, and urged upon
every man the necessity of exerting all his
energies and bringing to bear all of bis
influence in the coming election. General
Young then introduced General Cannon,
of Spartanburg, Colonel Cotbran and Ma?
jor Burt, of Abbeville, and Mr jor E. C.
McClur", a candidate for the office of
elector, who addressed the meeting on the
great issues of tbe day, after which the throng
marched in column to a cool grove, where dinner
had been prepared. Here the monstrous ta?
bles groaned under the weight of barbecued
meats of all kr.da, bread, potatoes and other
substantials. So careful and considerate bad
the ladies been that knives, forks, and even
spoons were placed at each plate. This was,
without exception, tbe best barbecue that I
have yet attended. Justice was done to the
edibles, and every one left the tables satisfied.
On the whole it was a grand success, and not a
single incident occurred to mar the harmony of

Lettere received in New York from Lima,
Peru, give additional details of the recent dis?
astrous earthquake and its effects.
On tho 13th ultimo a terrible earthquake
visii.ed the cities along the coast of Peru and
Ecuador, whereby thirty-two thousand lives
were lost, and property valued at three hun?
dred millions of dollars destroyed. Rum, lins
sounds preceded the earthquake; tho sea was
torr ihly no i ut ed, and flooded the land for a
pre .'t distance. Arequipa, o city of thirty-five
thousand inhabitants, was washed away, and
scarcely a vestige remains. Only four hundred
Uves were lost here. Arica, a town of twelve
thousand inhabitants, was also destroyed,
leaving Dot a house standing. Five hundred
perished here. The tidal wave, whioh was
forty feet high, rolled w.th a terriflc roar on
sh' -ro, curving ships further on land than
ever before known. The American merchant?
man Rosa Rivers, the English ship Chancel?
lor, and the French bark Eduardo were lost.
The towns of Iquique, Moquega, Locnmbia
and Pisa qua were entirely destroyed. Over six
hundred perished at Iquique. The American
merchants lost heavily-nearly all-and are
totally ruined. The towna of Ibarra, San Pablo,
Atuntaqui and Im an tad are in ruins. Where
Coatacneaobi formerly stood is now a lake.
The population of the above named towns nero
almost entirely swept away. Pancho Puellaro
and Caohiquanjo were also destroyed. The
dead are so numerous that the surviving in?
habitants have been forced to fly from the
stench ol their potriiying bodies.
The :arthquake commenced at half past five
o'clock on the 15th of August, extending from
Bolivia to the southern ports of Chili. The
coast, and over a hundred miles inland, with
the towns and cities mentioned in the Idis
patches of last night, were literally ruined.
All the buildijga whioh were not de.troy ed
by its ravages wore so badly injured as to re?
quire demolition for prudential reasons. All
the public edifices in Arica were destroyed, in?
cluding the custom-house, containing more
than four million dollars' worth of goods, all of
which were lost.
The loss of the United States storeship Fre
donia, and tbe landing of the Wateree aro de?
scribed as follows : They were both at anchor
in the harbor of Arica, near each other. A.ur
the first shock hal occurred on land, watch
created great ronsterualiuii o ? both vessois,
Dr. Dubois, tho surgeon o. the Fredonia, and
the paymaster of that vessel, took a boat and
went on shore to inquire for th i weliare of
friends, and to offer tue services ot the ship.
In a few moments after leaving the vessel a
great upheaving of the waters in the bay com?
menced, and the Fredonia, parting ber chains,
was dashed . bout at the mercy of tho waves,
and finally went to pieces on the reef. Nothing
of the vessel was saved. Her officers and
crew, twenty-seven in number, were lost, and
also Mrs. Dyer, tbe wife of the lieutenant com?
manding. The officers' nameajwere Lieutenant
B. Dyer; David Organ, ma-tor; S. Lour, secre?
tary to commandet ; and J. C. Cromwell, pay?
master's clerk. The vessel bad nearly two
millions of dollars worth of naval stores on
board, all o. which was totally loet.
The Wateree was more securely anchored,
bat dragged her anchors, and the great tidal
wave swept her tour hundred and fifty yarda
inland, about two miles north of the rained
town. She now hes between two hillocks of
sand, very slightly injured and it will be ut?
terly impossib e to extricate ber, and Admiral
Turner is only hopeful of saving her battery
and stores. Only one sailor was washed over?
board and drowned.' Lieutenant Johnson, of
the Wateree. was ashore at tue time, and while
earning his wife in his arms to some place of
safety, she was struck by a portion of a falling
building and instantly killed, rho Peruvian
corvette American shared the samo fate as
tho Wateree. She lost three officers and thirty
A letter from Arica, dated August 22, saye
two other vessels-the brig Chancellor and the
bark Eduardo-are also high and dry, the for
mor losing eight men.
The Bcene beggars description; railroad rails,
cars, machinery, gun carriages, household fur?
niture, barrels, dead animals and mutilated
corpses, are lying about in confusion. The
city numb red seven thou-and inhabitants,
?And its multitudes stand hopelessly beggared
on tbe beach. Three bu idred lives were lost.
A conflagration burned nearly all that was not
demolished by the earthquake, aud a drunken
rabble robbed an i despo led wu at remained.
Heavy cannon were carried way up from tue
island battery, and now lie buried in tho sand
on shore. The utencn is sickening.
At Lima there wai not much damage done,
although the shock* lasted sum J lour inmutes,
creatn g the utmost consternation among tho
inhabitants, who flod to tue open plains where
they besought protection from thu Almighty.
Tho merchants and citizens of Lim i are con?
tributing by thousands of dollars to equip and
load vessels with clothing and provisions, and
tho government is most energetically using ?il
its means to alleviate the diBtrorB entailed by
the horrible catastrophe. T?o Congress o. Peru
has unanimously passed a resolution giving
the President unlimited power to Buccor tue
inhabitants of the southern coast. Tho Presi?
dent has issued a proclumatiou aud tho Arch?
bishop a pastoral letter, calling upon tho Peru
vians for liberal ccntributions, which have
been readily responded to, over a million dol?
lars ha vi ne been rai ed.

tion on the coast hive suffered immensely

The port of Mollento, where are stored the
materials for bulldhg Mr. Meiggs' raUway,
was completely destnyed, nearly all the tools,
rails and provisions j'oinp ruined by the earth?
quake and the succeeding tidal waves.

Otovato perished, auounting to nearly thirty
thousand. At Quit the earthquake com?
menced at twenty ninutes past one o'clock
A. M., August 16, anl continued at intervals
for a low hours. Up :o the last date, the 19th,
the churches, public buildings and private
cl wellings were already in ruins, and the people
living in tents in the great squares. The towns
adjoining Quito, named Verusso, Puelloro and
Cochuquanjo, have almost entirely disappear?
ed, with their inhabitalts. Few wore left alive,
being obliged to flee t? escape the pestilence
arising from the dead bodies. The towns ot
Vinicho and Son Antonio have also disappeared.
The number of deaths in the City of Quito is
not yet known. A large number of wealthy in?
habitants died from pestilence or disaster.
A Valparaiso letter, dated August 17, says ad?
vices from Talquahano state that at nine
o'clock on the night of August 14th three earth?
quakes occurred. The second caused an im?
mense tidal wave, which swept away nearly
one-half of the town, and rendered tho other
half almost uninhabitable. Four lives only
were lost, the inhabitants fleeing to the hills.
At Tome the same occurred, but, being high,
little damage was done. The port of Consti
tuein suffered from the wave, but was not
much damaged. Several small vessels wer)
driven ashore, and Ave men drowned. Tho
town of Conception was also damaged by the
same cause. Cobija, Merillones I-lands, Pisa
qua, and all the cities and towns, in fact, from
Cape Francisco in Ecuador to Magellan Straits,
suffered more or less from the terrible visita?
tions of the earthquake.
At Callao the sea burst over a line of houses,
skirting the shore, at 19 o'clock P. M. on the
13th, oompletety gutting them of their con?
tents. Several vessels collided. No damage
was then done, nearly all putting to s P. The
next night a fire broke out, and fifty-seven
houses in the business portion of the place
were deutroved, entailing a loss of a million
and a half of dollars. No lives were lost. The
Chincha Islands felt the earthquake and wave,
but not seriously as yet known.
The citios of lea and Pisco also suffered
heavily, forty houses being overthrown and
twelve Uves lost at the former place. Nearly
all the population of Callao fled to Lima.
Tie steamer Santiago, bound from Callao to
Valparaiso, put in port off Chala, when, on the
13th, she was seized by the irreat wave,, her
chains snapped, and the vessel carried to sea.
In a few minutes the wave returned towards
shore, earring the steamer with it, and carry?
ing it with all her passengers safely over a high
cliff, leaving it safely inside the channel in
the port of Chali, completely covered with
At Caldera the wave and earthquake com?
pletely destroyed everything, former dwellings
being left heaps of rubbish. No traceB of
streets are to be Been. The inhabitants fled to
the mountains, but many were drowned or
killed. Thirty-seven dead bodies had been dis?
covered at last advices.
At Lnquois the shock lasted four minutes,
after which the wave cafae and destroyed about
three-quarters of the place, with many lives,
nearly all the provisions, and the condensing
machinery which supplied the inhabitant?
with drinking water.
Provisions and wa tor i,?,c ueen sent there
from Valparaiso. One German house at Iquique
lost over $400.000 worth of property.
Four hundred tone of silver ore, with all the
expensive works of tho Peruvian Mineral Com?
pany, owned in London, were completely swept
aw ty at Iquique. The towns of Cene ta, Cban
choy, Capana, Charba, Hobucera and other
smaller places, wore destroyed. Los Lomas
has been united to an island in the bay of Cal?
lao by the action of the earthquake.
The following extract from a letter dated
Callao, August 14, gives a faint ide i of the hor?
rors of tho night of the 13th, cn which day, ac?
cording to one of tho abovo dispatches, the
terrible earthquake occurred:
Last nieht was tho most fearful night of
horror.-i that Peru has ever known. The sea
was rising until midnight, and, actually oame
in fifty feet over the mole, and submerged all
the lower floors of tho stores and buildings
on the streets nearest the water. Ships lying
at anchor broke their moorings and drifted
into each other. The American man-of-war
Powhatan lying here, was run into by a ship,
breaking the iron jib-boom of the Powhatan,
and the Powhatan, as well as all tho Peruvian
men-of-war lying lier, steamed up and went
away out to sea. There seemed to be a regu?
lar under ourrent of whirlpool, so that ships
went whirling round and round. Thousands
of people walked the streets all night, and this
moraine tue stores are closed, and Callao
seems deserted. A feelins of terror prevails
that this may be a second St. Thomas affair,
and if there should bc another eartbquako to?
day affaira would look dangerous. Ships are
lorn and battered, and tho sea at tho present
writing boils and bubbles like a great whirl?

MisB Adah Isaacs Menken was bur.ed a tow
day.i since. It was a sad funeral-not from the
tears shed nor tho visible grief, but because
thero was nota tear shed nor a single gi loving

there was so few people to Day this lust tributo
of compassion. 'Jf all her boon c9inpauions,
of all those parasites who lived on her, drank
her wine and brandy, borrowed her money,
abused her, not one was to bo found to see her
to death'd door. Tuero were just twelvo people
at her funeral. Half of these were tradesmen
or servants; the rest were actors Lom the
theatre where she played. I -now all that may
be saia against ber; yet I cannot repress some
pity at her late, uying amone harpies without

of mania potu complicated with inflammation

studded the bright yellow harness, and on
the traces hung a hundred red tassels. I say
nothing of the ?rname.ita of the horsed' head?.
Tho strange turnout stopped suddenly-1 wad
knocked down by the right-bund horse, and
I roso bruised aiid ill-huinoied. A footman

tions and quotations from Greek sophists or
Hebrew dogmas to toss ofLglasses ot brandy
with tho gluttony of a drunken hostler. While
she showed off to me her mind and soul, sho
changed costume and let me see without modes?
ty and without embarrassment, the marvel?
lous beaaty of her bod7. She showed me the
trace of the balls she had received in war, and
lifting up a tress of block hair, which sbe
dropped on my brow with a thoroughly femi?
nine art, she begged me to feel the depth of
the scar left on her head by a hatchet. She
admitted she was the blind slave of her pas?
sions, and traced to heaven the deplorable de?
lights found in the satisfaction of the guiltiest
appetites. She was a Jewess, and yet her
beauty had nothing oriental about it. Her
black oyes, edged with long lashes, had a
gamut of characteristic expressions like a fin?
ger-board with aseries of notes of different
tonalities. Her eyes expressed anger,
love, ferocity, gentleness. Her mouth had
the aspirations of the wild beast : it
sometimes invited kisses, and sometimes
made threats, or gave insults. As for her body,
imagine not tbe body of classical Venus, but
the body of some peculiar Venus-a modern
Venus with round, obtrusive, almost thick out?
lines. Her flesh waa firm, but slightly tanned
by the climates in which she had lived, and
also by the violent exercise in which she had
indulged since her childhood. Her flesh almost
burst the stockings that she wore. As soon as
sho reached Paris she sent me ber address. I
forgot what 1 revented me from going to see
her. Nevertheless, one day I contrived to call
on her. I found aer in a fourth-class hotel,
giving the last touches to a volume of poetry
which ber London publishers imperiously ask?
ed of her, and on a table lay unfinished the
?beet of a political letter destined to some
newspaper (?) in the United States. She always
wore a long white tunic srotted with the
ashes of cigarettes, whicb never quitted her Ups.
She always had around her people who lived
on her-chambermaids, female friends, and
Americans who uncorked her champagne and
emptied her brandy bottles. I assure you
none of them were ahead of her in these exer?
cises. She spoke with enthusiasm one day of
an idea of M. Danas, Sr., and of one of M.
Dugue8's pieces. With the hope of playing
tbe parts sketched in these projected works,
she studied French, whicb she spoke with dif?
ficulty, but which she wrote quite well. Her
dressing room at the Gaite Theatre was quite
elegant. She had stipulated in her engagement
she should have a drawing room to receive
visits, where she might smoke and serve tea to
her friends. The last time I saw Miss Menken
w IB two months since in the hotel in the Rue
Conmartiii, where her funeral took place. She
wrote me a note to say ehe was ill, and I called
on her one afternoon. She said to me
with a very ead smile: 'My poor, dear boy,
I leel I am very UL' When I jested with
her about her apprehensions, although the
groat change which had taken place in
her features Ailed mo with the worst forebod?
ings, she repUed : 'I have received my death
wonnd. I am lost to art and to life.' She
fetched a resigned sigh, and added : 'After all
I have Uved more than a woman of a hundred
years, so it is but justice I should go where
they carry old people.' I succeeded m giving
her some confidence, but the idea of death con?
tinued to return m her conversation. Sh -said :
'You have never written an article about me.
Make haste, for if I die I shall not read it.' I
replied: 'Don't talk of death; the manager of
the Theatre du Chatelet wants yon for the re?
vival of the Pirates.' She exclaimed, 'Non?
sense! he'll easily find ancther Leo 1' She
burst into tears and exolaimed between two
sobs : 'Poor Leo 1' I severely scolded her that
day for keeping constantly in bed with her a
little dog, to which she was ure at ly at?
tached. I told her it was unhealthy. She
gravely responded: 'My dear fellow, I
ave been tola dogs smell death coming, and
run away, So long as my dog remains by my
side I shall know I must live. If my dog runs
away I shall uuderstand my last hour has come,
and I shall pray God to have mercy on my BOUL'
Three weeks afterward I rcceivod a tJlegram
irom Bongival, whither her physician bad sent,
her. It was in these words :-'Corne quick,
Menken is dying. 1 went at once to Bongival.
She was delirious. She did not recognize me.
She talked rapidly in English. In the chaos of
incoherent expressions which fell from her col?
orless Ups I heard these words : 'Give me
more brandy.' Tho poor croat uro modo the
diagnosis ot her disease : it was an inflamma?
tion of tho digestive tube, caused by the abuse
ol 1 loubol and the deflanco she had constantly
bid her vigorous constitution by indulging in
superhuman exercises. A rabbi was with her
at her last moments, and sho was buried ac?
cording to tho Hebrew rites."
A Bow IN THE RADICAL CAMP. -The Columbia
Phoenix, of yesterday, says:
The Rads propose to hold a mass meeting
to-night in front of Tanney's new Statehouse,
for the purpose of considering the nomination
of Associate Justice Solomon L. Boge, who was
selected last week as their candidato tor Con?
gress from this Congressional District. It is
understood that Beverly Nash, and others of
his ilk, will deliver addresses, This pow-wow
will be the sequence of a meeting of the mem?
bers of the two houses of the Legislature
from the several Eeountics composing
the Congressional District, which is to
be holden this forenoon, with a view, if possi
eible of discountenancing Hoge's nomination,
and substituting therefor the name of F. Judas
Moses, Jr., who is the favorite of the malcon?
tents. Similar meetings wore held last Friday,
but Moses was not strong enough to carry the
point in the morning, and, by the time night
came, H?ge having taken the precaution to
sprinkle a host of paid chiquera in the crowd,
managed to be called on for a speech -swal ow?
ed the nigger at a gulp, and thus put Moses
?nd his tribe temporarily mto chancery. How
the meetings of to-day and to-night will result,
it is, as jct, impossible to predict, but our im?
pressions of Hoge's adroitness are so strong,
that we incline to the belief that he wdl hold
his own against our modern Judas.
THE GBEAT FLEE AT QUINCY, FLA.-A cor?
respondent of the Savannah Republican, writ?
ing from Quincy, Fla., on the lOtb, gives the
following details of the recent fire at that
The fire originated from the ignition of some
crescent oil, or self-generating gas, in the store
ot Air. Thomas P. Jon eh. About six o'clock in
tbe afternoon a gentleman called at the store
for some ot the oil, and the clerk proceeded
with a candle to get it. While in the act of
drawing it, some of the oil which had leaked
upon the floor became ignited, communicated
with tho barrel, and instantly enveloped the
store in flames, which spread so furiously as
to bufflo all efforts to subdue them. There
being no fire engine here, and water very in?
convenient, one entire block cn Washington
Btroet, and another on Madison-street, were
consumed about one-third of the business
