French War Reports.
TOCRS, October 3.
An official decree has been issued for the
purpose ol enforcing discipline and order. The
most vigorous and stringent measures have
been taken with that view.
Court-martials will replace councils of w ar
during the continuance of the war. There will
be no reversion or alteration of the sentences
pronounced by the court-martials.
Article sixth provides that all deserters,
murderers, spies, thieves and pillagers shall be
punished with death; also provides the same
punishment for any soldier who threatens or
disobeys a superior officer, or loses his arms
for the purpose of avoiding a combat. During
a fight any commissioned or non-commission?
ed officer is authorized to shoot any soldier
detected In a cowardly action, or who does not
assume any place to which he is ordered, or
endeavors to create a panic.
Any non-military person participating in
any of the said offences may be subjected to
the death penalty.
Each army division will be accompanied by
a force of gens d'armes. The provost marshal
may issue orders to enforce these rules, and
may, upon his own authority, make arrests.
The whole of the decree is applicable to r.ll
the armed forces of the Republic.
Prefects and mayors are ordered to proceed
p at once to mobilize troops, reporting progress
every three days under pain ol revocation.
These decisive measures are heartily ap?
proved of by al! the population here.

finding means to prevent disorders at Lyons,

the season at the Academy of Music last night.
Their entertainment was, as usual, excellent,
and the several artists acquitted themselves to

The panthiopticonicaoi Professor Schaffer has
been augmented since the last exhibi?

scenes-our noble orphan asylum, and a very
fine view of the burnt district, apparently
taken from cither St. Michael's or St. Philip's
steeple, and showing the ruins of the Cathe?

and another of Louis Napoleon.
The^Academy is now In far better condition
than it ever has been. Additional windows
have been cut and other means ol more com?

RICHMOND, October 3.
The Hood has gone down, and the mer?
chants are calculating their losses. It is
thought this morning that half a million will
cover the loss in the city, but not in the towns
AFTON, near Greenwood, October 3.
Accounts coming in from this county (Alber?
marle) represent the destruction of property
as immense. Many lives are lost. The flood
in some instances swept away entire families.
The number of lives lost in Albemarle Coun?
ty, as far as heard from, is fourteen. The
amount of destruction of grain, tobacco, barps,
fences, cattle, hogs, houses and mills, ls incal?
culable. The number of mills and dams de?
stroyed within the range of the flood is about
fifty. In the upper valley of Virginia the flood
was so great that it carried cows and hogs be?
fore it like so many chips of wood. It was
particularly severe along the Chesapeake and
Ohio. At Shadwell a mile of track was washed
away. There are some dozen landslides be?
tween Cobham and Millboro', and eight or ten
bridges arc washed away. The road ls dam?
aged to the extent of one hundred thousand
dollars. At the Mountain Top House, on the
summit o? the Blue Ridge, the kitchen was
flooded by water.
GREENWOOD, VA., October 3.
It rained very heavily again all day yester?
day and last night, and an augmentation ot
the flood below may be looked for. Owing to
the destruction of mills and the interruption ol
railroad"communication much suffering among
the poor in the inundated districts is reported.
Breadstuffs have advanced.
Passengers from the blockaded trains will be
sent to Charlottesville to-morrow, and tnere
.ferried across Moore's Creek and the Rivanna
to connect with the train on the opposite side.
The road between White Sulphur Springs and
Millboro' is open, but between Millboro' and
Keswick, a distance of eighty-five miles (?)
the road ls impassable, aud so injured by the
flood that travel caunot be resumed for two
weeks, although General Wickham has all his
available force at work.

COLUMBIA, October l.
On Thursday night, the 29th of September,
the residence of Colonel Thomas J. Lipscomb,
of Newberry County, was burnt with Hie torch
of incendaries. Threats ot the same had been
heard repeatedly since the Newberry and
Laurens excitements began. The night
was raioy, and no dres were ia
the house irom which the conflagra?
tion could have come. It occurred about 3
o'clock of that night; that is to say, ol Friday
morning. Colonel Lipscomb's wife and chil?
dren were left shelterless in the rain at that
hour. The loss was almost complete, from Hie
fact that little assistance could be had. Of the
twenty negroes living on the place, only two
lent any aid at the fire; but these two served

The Radical County Nominating Convention
Of Edgetleld have just made their nominations.
The meeting was called for ll o'clock, but it
was 3 before a temporary chairman could be
determined upon. The most active and no?
ticeable element in the earlier portion of the
meeting was the contest between Eichelberger
-the Falstaff of the Black Brigade of Edge
field-and Prince Rivers, for the nomination.
Outsiders who were inside say that the votes
were counted by them, and that Eichelberger
got 39 and Rivers 36; but the former was de?
clared elected ! After a deal of wrangling,
however, the meeting got st!? led, under the
influence of Colonel Elliott, who, it seems,
turned the tide in favor of his sable brother.
The nominations made are : For Legisla?
ture-T. R. Rivers, colored, incumbent; J. A.
Barker, white; William Kennedy, white, of the
constabulary; Samuel Lee, coloreil, incumbent;
L. Cain, colored, incumbent; Sergeant Greene,

sioners-James Harding, white; Robert Sentel,
white; Phil. Dozier, colored. For School Com?
missioner-J. FI. MeDevlt. white, present sher?

Of all these twelve nominees, only two-J.

THE CREAM OF THE WAR NEWS.
The Grand Review In Paris.
A correspondent ol the London Dally Tele?
graph thus describes the review ol French
troops In Paris by General Trochu on the 13th
ol September :
At nine o'clock in the morning the different
battalions began to rendezvous. The Garde
National Sedeulaire assembled in companies
at some open place convenient to their quart?
ers, and thence marched to the general ren?
dezvous ol' the battalion. When I tell you
that No. 130 is one ol the strongest regiments,
you will believe that the National Guard of
Paris is no trifling force. Each battalion
numbers fifteen hundred men or over, and
there are more than a hundred and thirty o?
them. How many more I don't know, nor,
apparently, does any one else, who la willing to
tell; but I can guarantee to you that the S??
dentaires alone, without counting mobiles,
regular troops, sailors, marines, Francs-tl
reurs or other corps, count more than two
hundred thousand bayonets.
Assembled at their appointed stations, the
battalions moved up or down the boulevards
and the great thoroughfares to the several
spots where General Trochu had appointed to
review them. Thence arose that deluge of
bayonets which so Impressed the Parisians all
the morning. In every possible direction,
north and south, east and west, this way a?d
that, on the pavements, In the roadway, by
transverse streets, by right angles, by acute,
by oblique, the sea ol' bayonets pressed on.
The smallest ripple of all the eager wave was
of live or six hundred men; the greatest was
ol twenty thousand. Hour alter hour they
blocked the streets, and their white bayonets
crossed each other in the strangest of orderly
confusions, os one great mass pushed east?
ward and another west. I watched them on
the boulevard till my dizzy eyes grew tired.
When General Trochu galloped past, doffing
his k?pi at ea<-.h minute to the enthusiasm ol
the crowd, we hoped that something would
take place to rest our gaze awhile. But no! The
cenerai might come and the general might go,
out the Gardes S?dentaire went on forever.
We strolled up the little rise of the Boulevard
Montmartre. Below us, on either side, as far
as the eve could reach, a stream of rifles push?
ed onward. Down the dirty Rue St. Denis was
another heavy mass waiting for a passage.
Down the Rue Montmartre the head ol'a third
was visible. We passed to the Rue Rivoli, and
there, marching in the contrary direction, was
a column miles and miles in length, and the
fieople shouting everywhere, and songs rising
n broken fragments from the troops, and flow?
ers falling from window and balcony, and
drums beating, and shouts of "Vive la R?pub?
lique I" passing up and down the street like
waves ol a perturbed ocean. I would that
William, King ol Prussia, had beheld the sight;
he would, no Tonger have thought or talked of
Alaric and Rome after an hour ol yesterday's
As I have already told you there was no
general massing of troops and no manoeuvres.
Each battalion, or group ol battalions, was
assembled in some large place or street, and
then General Trochu came to meet it. The
order ol'the day was kept by the Gardes Mo?
bile, who stood side by side along the edge of
the pavement for a space ol nine miles.
Some ol' them passed along among the Gardes
S?dentaire, and the rest fell In behind them,
and took their portlou ol' the plaudits. IL was
a sight, on the whole, which could be describ?
ed only as superb. Under Crcsar's regime we
have many a time beheld displays far more
Impressive in Hie pomp of war. But lt was
the interminable array of these citizen sol?
diers thal struck one with real awe. The offi?
cial accounts ure dumb as to the uumbers Tro?
chu saw, bul I should put them down as at the
least three hundred and filly thousand men.
The Ravages of (he War,
A correspondent of the London Times, wri?
ting from Bouillon, September 13th, says :
Your correspondent with the array ot the
Crown Prince, in describing the battle ot" Se?
dan, said that never before in the world's his?
tory had there been seen such a butchery as
went on during that great fight. I believe lt
may also be affirmed that never did a contest
In arms result In such lerrifflc cousequences to
the surviving combatants and to the pe?plo
whose country lias been made the scene ol'
hostilities. For miles around Sedan one sees
nothing but destruction and ruin; and from
?uornlug till lar into the ulght. processions of
the maimed and wounded are passing from
the French frontier into ihe neutral territory
ol' Belgium. Sedan itself is ono vast hospital,
and between that town and Bouillon, a dis?
tance of about len English miles, there is
scarcely a church or a house from which the
white flag and the red cross ls not now waving
to make known that there are wounded inside.
But it was at Bazellles the greatest havoc
marked the final struggle between the Prus?
sians and McMahon's. army. The Prussians
set lire to it. A handsomer or more prospe?
rous village there was not in the northeast of
Krance. It was small, but it coutainetl an in?
dustrious population. Abjong ihe buildings
were a magnificent church anti Irom twenty to
thirty house'* ol' considerable pretensions iur
village residences-houses of Cnen stone, and
having elab?rale bronze gates and doors. Baz
ellles is now as complete a ruin as Pompeii.
Indeed, lhere are houses at Pompeii in a bet?
ter state of preservation than any at Baz?
ellles. Not a roof or floor remains in
any one of them. The Prussian shelia did
lheir work so well that even the front walls
of Caen stone have been blown and
burnt lo fragments, which now block
up tho pavements and all but cover the
roadway. Even in the lanes off thc main
street every habitation was utterly destoyed.
No human "being could now lind shelter in
Bazellles. When a troop of Prussian lancers
rode through it yesterday no sound was heard
there but the trumping of their owu horses,
and then; was not a living soul-man, woman
or child-of the happy population who dwelt
there lillie more than a week ago. The Prus?
sian* suv they destroyed Bazeilles because the
Inhabitant had tired upon them from their
houses. TJiis is denied by the French, who
say that Hie shots which came hom the houses
were tired by the regular soldiers and the
Garde Mobile. Be this as lt may, destruc?
tion was never more, complete than at Ba?
zeilles. Thence to Balm, and also lroiu La
CliaiMillo to Balm, thc country, ls u
complete waste. Crops aud orchards
have disappeared, and thc farm-houses
are riddled by bullets. Rifles and caunon both
played their part at Balun, and thence on to se?
dan, a distance ol'about na English mile. Dead
horses abound all along the route; chassepots
lie about in hundreds; there are shakoee, hel?
mets and cuirasses In heaps, and knapsacks
and cartouche boxes enough for a whole reg -
ment. In the vicinity of such spoil I observed
scores ol' men wearing the white badge and
cross, whoso work was not administering to
the sick ?ind wounded, but seekitig for any?
thing worth Unding. Some ol' them wore sol?
dier's knapsacks. Numbers ol these men and
of other badge bearers, whom I hate to meet
upon the battle-field, are evidently mere tour?
ists; while not a few of them are downright
rascals. I have been told that they have rob?
bed the dead. Some of them are villanous
looking enough for anything.
General War Notes.
The downfall of Louis Napoleon recalls the
cutting repartee which he Is said to have re?
ceived from Lady Blessington. The Countess
had belriended him when he was a poor ad?
venturer In London, and went to Paris to be
.near him after he had become prosperous.
Much to her chagrin, he paid her no attention,
but one day when their carriages were abreast
In a thronged street, Napoleon said, "Count?
ess, how long do you expect to remain In
Paris ?" She answered, with dignity and omi?
nous wit, "Only a short time. How long do
you expect to stay here ?"
The telegraph has performed a very Impor?
tant part In the present war. Each Prussian
army has a telegraph division, consisting of
three station wagons with ten systems ofap
paratus and the necessary batteries, six requi?
sition wagons, and necessary vehicles for
equipage. They carry with them material for
six miles of'telegraph. The personnel of each
division consists of an engineer officer, be?
sides a second officer aa assistant, twelve gov?
ernment telegraph officials for working the
apparatus, and the necessary number ot pio?
neers for the restoration or erection of tele?
graph lines. In the advance into France
scarcely did the enemy disappear on the fur?
ther side ol the valley than these telegraph
corps began their work in order to secure a
rapid means of communication between the
different portions of the army, as well as to
keep up a connection with the States telegraph.
As a rule these telegraph pioneers erect one
mlle (German) of telegraph In four hours, or
under favorable circumstances in two hours,
such ls the perfection of t heir organization.
The North German Correspondent mentions
the following case, illustrating the pitiless
manner in which the order expelling Germans
from France was enlorcod : A German sculp?
tor, called K?nig, wbo\ had lived six years In
Paris, received an order on the 20th of August
to leave France within three days. His aged
mother lay on her death-bed, and he sought,
but was refused, a temporary permission to
remain tor his wife and dying parent. On the
third day two police agents appeared to con?
duct the family to the railway station, and
with great difficulty K?nig obtained a delay
of two hours. The poor patient was prepared,
as well as possible, for removal, but expired in
being borne to the carriage which was waiting
at the street door. The sculptor's wire earnest?
ly begged permission to remain in Paris till
her relative had been interred, but her en?
treaties were In vain, and the corpse was com?
mitted for burial to some of their neighbors in
whose hearts all human feeling was not quite
extinct. The unfortunate sculptor, in his dis?
tress, applied to Prince Metternich, who coldly
replied that he could not Interfere.

general health Improved.
Thousands or persons certify that It may bc
relied on In all casas of weakness or nervous
debility attendant upon sedentary habits. Thc
generality of Bitters are so disagreeable to the
taste that they are objectionable to a weak
stomach. This ls not the case with Uostetter's
Bitters, which will be found mild and extremely
pleasant. Balsamic plants, barks and roots con?
tribute their restorative Juices to render lt sooth
lng and strengthening. Its basis ls thc only pure
stimulant which has ever been produced, con?
taining no fusil oil. or any other deleterious ele?
ment. jThc most careful and skilful chemists
have analyzed thc Bitters, and pronounce them
harmless. This ls scientific testimony; but the
testimony of the hundreds of thousands who
have experienced the preventive and curative
effects or the Great Vegetable Tonic and Altera?
tive or modern times ls still more conclusive. In
