LONDON, September 30
The Cologne Gazette, of to-day, publishes
the views of several correspondents on the
question of terms of peace. One writer, while
admitting that the prevailing tongue in Alsace
is German, denies the editor's statement that
the same is true of Lorraine. One who pass?
ed a great part of his Ufe in that province says
that the German element is hardly perceptible,
and the German language ls onh spoken in
the belt adjoining the frontier.
It is said that the French repulsed the Pms

According to the statement of Marshal Le
BceufT, late chief of the Emperor's staff, the

the Emperor before the war commen.ed in
what state the army was.

PURSUIT OF THE HERMANN.
A Frenen War Veaael in Pull Chase.
The steamship Scotia, of the Cunard line,
which arrived at New York on Tuesday, from
Liverpool and Queenstown, brings news that
must cause much uneasiness to all those in?
terested, directly or indirectly, in the steamer '
Hermann, of the Hamburg line, which put to
sea at an early hour that morning. The New
Tork Times says :
About 8 o'clock in the forenoon the Scotia
sighted the Hermann and signalled her, the lat- I
ter replying. The German steamer was at the '
time going at an extraordinary rate, having l
an a full head ot steam. She wits bearing out- I
ivard so rapidly as to attract the attention of <
the Scotia's passengers. The cause of her uno- i
mal speed was soon explained by the appear- <
ince of a French war vessel, also under full '
.team, and In quick chase ol' the Hermann. <
The two vessels, as sighted lrom the Scotia, 1
mist have been within view ol' each other, 1
md both seemed Inclined to keep tip the race. <
The Hermann wa3 a long way ahead of the ?
frenchman, and the belief on board the Seo- '
ia was that should she be able to maintain the (
lame distance between herself and her pur- l
mer until nightfall, she could then escape In i
he darkness. I
Immediately on the arrival of the Scotia
Captain Judkins reported the matter to the 1
uwtomhouse oillcers who boarded lils steamer, \
Che Hermann had a very narrow escape from t
;ncountering another enemy In the French gun- I
?oat. Bouvet, which crossed in over the bar 1
mlv five hours before she was sighted by the 1
ico'tia. The Bouvet must have passed Hie I
teman vessel without being aware of her t
iresence. Had she encountered the Hermann I
n front, and the other war vessel in the rear. \
he Bremen Hue would be minus a steamer i
o-day. Until we receive further Intelligence, i
he gravest apprehensions must be enter- 1
uined for the safety of the steamer. The 1
junboat Bouvet ls commanded by ?tn ex- i
lerienccd officer. Lieutenant Flenquet. and has t
m board a lull complement of men, with I
nrire stores of ammunition aud other war ma- I
ional. She comes from St. Pierre under spe- \

THE LOSS OF THE CAPTAIN.
Varrativc of the Survivors-Pall and
Particular Account of thc Awful
A Portsmouth letter (September 12) to the
London Standard gives some interesting par
iculars in regard to the loss of this celebrated
ron-clad, the largest and most formidable o?
he British navy. The letter says:
From the statements of the few who have
jeen saved, it appears that about midnight on
-he Gili instant, the ship was in company with
.he Channel ileet, about, forty miles off Cape
Elnlsterre. cruising under double-reefed fore
ind maintopsails, ?ind rorctopmast staysail and
mainsail, and the foresail hauled up, there be?
ag at the time a wry strong breeze and a
heavy sea. The starboard watdi had beencall
al at 12 o'clock and were being mustered,
?hen a squall struck (he ship on the port side,
?using her to give a heavy lurch to starboard.
As she did not right herself. Captain Burgoyne,
ivho was on the bridge, gave the order to low
;r the topsail, but In consequence ol the yards
jelng braced sharp up, the ship al. the" time
jelng on the port tack, it did not come down.
Orders were promptly given to let go the lee
jraces and man the top-sail downhaul,
jut by this time the ship had been again
druck by a heavy sea, and "she was com
Jletely ?ove on her beam-ends, with the
ivater pouring down her funnel, and she then
urned bottom upward and gradually sunk
item first. From ihe time the ship was first
struck to her going down, only from five to
len minutes elapsed. The number on board
it the time was about 520. When the Captain
was first lost sight of, lt was thought that she
dad missed the fleet, which ls notan uncom?
mon occurrence on. a dark night and when it
s blowing hard, and.no one Imagined she had
?one down. But, alas, the sad late soon be?
came apparent, when first was picked up a
?oat, then a spar, and subsequently one of the
men. who had lashed himself to a grating, bot
did not succeed in saving his life. On the
morning of Thursday last, the Monarch, seven
turret ship. Captain John E. Commerell, V. C.,
C. B., which had been searching round the
coast, brought intelligence to the flag-ship that
one warrant officer and seventeen men had
landed from the Captain. The Monarch went
back and picked them up off Cape Finisterre
noon on that day, and they were transferred
to the Volage.
James May, gunner, says that he was awak
ened about 12 o'clock at night on the lGth
some marines making a noise outside b!
cabiu. and finding the ship more than usually
unsteady, he dressed himselt to go on deck
and see If the guns were all right In the tur
rets. When he got up into the turret, the
ship gave a very heavy roll to- starboard, and
continued in that postion, gradually heaving
over more and more until he found water
coming iuto the port-hole on the top of the
tunnel, through which he crawled, and then
found himself overboard. He, however, sue
ceeded with fire others, Including Captai
Burgoyne, in reaching the steam pinnace
which* was floating bottom uppermost, and
observing the launch passing within a few
yards of them, he cried out, "Now Jump, men
this ls your only chance !" He and
three others did so, and succeeded in gettin
into Ihe boat. They in vain endeavore
to regain the pinnace to save the captain, but
the sea was running so high that it prevented
them from lulfiling the task, and in the attemp
they were struck by a heavy sea, nearly
swamping the boat, and washing one man
George Meyers, overboard. They then deter
mined to let the boat run before the sea,
land was known to be to leeward of them
AbouLtwo o'clock they sighted a light on Cap
Finisterre, and afterwards observed land. They
made for lt, and succeeded in landing about
noon of the "th at Finisterre.
There seems to be but little doubt that the
loss of the Captain is wholly due lo faults
construction. The New York Tribune says:
Although of 1000 tons less burden than
tbe Monarch, sh? had the sam3 heavy arma
meut and tbick plating as that creal ship, with
enormous iron masts, large spars and anunpre
ccdentediy extensive area of canvas. Tho Mon
arch has a freeboard of fourteen feet; the Cap
tain was built only nine feet above the water
and was liable to heel beyond tbe centre of
gravity. Beiog struck by a squall on thc poi
side, she gave a sudden lurch, so that the tops
of the turrets were under water, and the wind
cot so powerml a purchase against the under
part of tbe broad hurricane deck which extends
from bows to stern above the turrets, that she
was unable to right herself, and was actually
overset by the weight of her masts. She was
a more dangerous vessel than tho Monarch
first, in having disproportionately heavy spars
and too much canvas; secondly, m having too
low a seaboard; thirdly, in having & wide hur?
ricane deck where the Monarch has ouly a
bridge; fourthly, in carrying too much weight
above the water Hoe in proportion to ber
draft. Her loss seems to settle the principle
thai low freeboard and heavily armed turrets
however applicable to vessels of the monitor
chss without masts, cannot safely be combined
