The Stuiition in France.
WASHINGTON", December 27.
The diploma! ic view ol thc war situation is
that there seems to be no French army outside of
Pa^ capable of wrenching the city from the be?
siegers. The troops in Paris cannot break through
without assistance, and lt ls apprehended that the
gallantry or the scattered French cannot Impede
the progress of the lnvadihg armies.
The Battle of A?ni-.ns-Defeat bf the
BR?SSELS, December 24.
Special to the Ne,v York World: On yesterday
the tlrst and second divisions of Faidherbe's army,
commanded by LeComte and Duvay, engaged the
Prussians under General Manteu?fe!. The line of
* battle extended from Noyelles to Corbeil. The
third division wa3 at Montall, and the reserve at
Albert. General Manteuffcl was moving towards
Albert In three columns, from Amiens, Chenny
and Laf?re, when Faidherbe's troops met him and
successfully resisted his advance for seven hours
without calling upon the French reserves. The
fight was resumed to day.

NEW YORK, December 26.
The Herald has the following on the situation:
The reported dereat of General Chansey at Le
Mans, has not been confirmed, and probably will
not be. At the same time, we are prepared to
hear of his retirement to Alencon. This, in fact,
waa foreshadowed by our correspondent, writing
from LeMans, a few days ago; nor will such re?
tirement be necessarily a compulsory retrograde
movement Ohanaey's plan evidently is to move
as far north as he possibly eau, ?o that be may
relieve Bourbaki's force from the danger? of sn
attack following the sadden juncture of the two
German armies operating? in the vicinity of thc
Loire. Besides, if.Ohansey succeeds In his nuuk
movement, and throws his army In a position
northwest of Pari3, he will virtually cover Havre
and Cherbourg, and will be heavily reinforced by
the forces gathered to defend those cities. Mean?
while, with General Faldheroe keeping Manten ce
employed near Amiens, Bourbaki, who ls certain?
ly the ablest office now in the French service,
may succeed ia lorclng hts way to Fontainebleau,
or by a vigorous offensive movement, compel the
Germans to concentrare against him, and thus
give Chansey a chance to push on to St. Denis,
or some point on the west or Paris.

of the provisions which were ca be supplied <lay

paper ?tates that, tn addition to potatoes, there
were Billi rrcsh vegetables, such ns cabbages and
celery, and that largo quantities of preserved
vegetables were to be had at the dialers. Bread
was being made of flour, ground in l\irls, and

While a good deal ot atten'.ion was necessarily

kept In view. M. Lagoave had delivered a lecture
upon lr, and had urged thc Parisians to lay lu a
stock of alimentation mor?ilc with as ranch care
as they displayed with regar i lc provisions of a
material kind: and the lecturer's advice, we are
told, was all the more eagerly listened to because
It was In harmony with the prevalllnir feeling or

attempted to get beyond thefoitlflc.ttions. There
was some talk of execmlng two or three women
of louse character who had been detected as spies.
The .-tate of public feeling, accordion to the Let?

Never b rotc had Pans enjoyed so much iranquilll-1

against Hie government were becoming rarer in

Germany and Luxembourg.
The lollowiiig ls the text of Bismarck's dis?
patch relative to Luxembourg, dated December 3:
Prussia at thc outbreak of tho war declared
that she would respect the neutrality ut Luxem?
bourg, provided France did the same, ir Luxem?
bourg had sincerely eudcavored to remnlu neu?
tral, Prussia wonld have scrupulously unserved a
strict neutrality ; but neither France nor Luxem?
bourg have done so. The hostile feelings of tue
population of the Duchy are shown In the treat
meutor all German officials. Prussia did not
hold that government responsible lor the bad
conduct towards her or individuals, but she
thought that efforts should have been made to re
pierstbe repruvlPloatng or ThtonvUle through
trains fror.: Luxembourg. SUCH a flagrant breach
of neutrality laws could not, however, have
tuken place without connivance ofthe government
oillciul-. Prussia lodgca a complaint with thc
government of Luxembourg, pouring out the
consequeuces to which such a proceeding w uld
inevitably lead, but her warning was uuhecded.
Alter nie rail of Metz, largo numbers of French
soldiers ?iud oilicers passed through Luxembourg
to evade the German troops and to rejoin the
French army north or the towu of Luxembourg.
Tile resilient'french CMUSUI was at tue uffl.ee at
Hie railway station to assist fugitives In reaching
France. Two thousand Soldiers thus reinforced
the French army, and rho Government of Luxem?
bourg did nothing to prevent 't. Thia nudoubtcd
1? constitutes a xross violation of neutrality. The
conditions on Willoh Prussia based her neutrality,
therefore, ceased to exist, lu consequence or
which Prussia declares on her part that sue con?
siders licrseir no hinger bound to regard fie neu?
trality of Luxembourg. She reserves ro herself
Hie rluhr to claim compensation irom the Duchy
for losses sustained by Prussia consequent on the
noti-ob-er vanceof her neutrality, and will take
the necessary steps io secure herself against the
recurrence of similar proceedings.

TO THE STAN i ARDS.
Events which Itls neither my wish nor my duty
to recall, and by constant determination and ar?
dent desire to constitute your happiness, even
at thc price of thc greatest sacrifices, made me
decide In 186s upon abandoning my naiivc land.
Siuce then I have not ceased to address to Heaven
iny nio?t lervent supplications that you might en?
joy the peace and we 1-belng which you so much
. escrvc, and of which a minority greedy of power
had for a time deprived you.
Wishing to render legal this step, so important
and KO painiul tu me. as we'! a* to avoid Its being
attributed to violence, and its rorming a reason?
able pretext at some future time, more or less
distant, for new dist?rbanos, 1 drew up on the
25th of June, of the present fear, arree and spun-.
taneons abdication or all 'my purely political
rights, with a'l i hose which I possessed to the
Crown or Spain, transmitting them to my be-,
loved son, Don Alfonso de' Bourbon, Prince or
Asturias, and reserving to myself such rights as
had not the aforesaid politisai character. 1 flat?
tered myself that this act of Abnegation, as spon?
taneous" as lc was Blncere. would have calmed
over-excited passions; woulajtiave inspired coud
dence In those-who, refusing to do me justice,
might have considered mv person an obstacle to

have restored my couuiry ,to Its normal condl

entitle him to be your sovereign, in despite of thc

In Its favor ihat legitimacy, consecrated by the
lapse of ages and by constitutions, which lt has
been a signal follv to disavow.
I should be wanting to my sacred dulles as a

MANNING, December 22.
We have had Intensely cold weather for sev?
eral dav? past, ami to-night the snow ls fast
spreading a white mantle over the earth. The
chivalric spirits or onr cn-.iutj- Uatf a tonrnrrmoirt
here on yesterday, lu Which some eighteen knights
strove for the honor or crowning one of the many
bright-eyed damsels who grace l the occasion by
their presence. C?ptala W. T. Lescsne was the
herald, discharging his duty in a highly satisfac?
tory manner. Tne successful knight In taking
the first honor, Mr. Bradhiim, crowned Miss Sarah
Kelly queen of love sn I beaut v.
Alter ci.e tournament was over, and in the even?
ing, a difllculty arose between a white cicizen and
a black man. ' The Mack mau was to b ame. and
was knocked down, after which (to him) nnsails
raccory performance, he gathered a large crowd
of negroes ar. und him, and endeavored, ny every
means, to Inflame and arouse their passions to
thc hUliest pitch-in fact, he tried to bring about
a Oght between the blacksand whites present; but
had not sunVlent courage to lead them. About 9
o'clock ar. night some of the black people who
sympathized with the colored man referred to
hauled an ox cart loaded with fodder Into' the
. mouth of a passage about len feet wide, beiween
the law office of Messrs..Blandlng, Itlchardson k
Rhnme, aud 'he drug store of G. P. McKugen,
Esq., and set lt on Ure; but. lt was discovered In
time to prevent any damage, except the loss of
the fodder, which waa owned by a poor man. who
had brought lt Into the village for sale. At the
time, and for some time arter the dlf?cnlty of
wh.ch 1 have spoken above, a collision bet ween
the two races seemed inevitable, as tn?-colored
people were extremely insolent and taunting hi
their remarks. FRANZ.
THE WBURT LAWS.
[From the Barnwell ScnMnel, December 23.]
The News says our article on this subject is
paradoxical. Let ns answer our esteemed cotem
porary by a quotation from its Issue of tho 14th
December: "Goid and Bond Markee-New Y rk,
december is, evening.-Dullness tho great fea?
ture; money mostly C per cent., with exceptions
at 5a7 per cent. Cold rather weak." Again:
1 New York, December l j.-0"!d nt 3 o'clock was
worth Iii to l?? per cent, per day. and 7 per cent,
per auuutu." Now what does this mean? Is lt
nut a perfect vindication of our position r Money
is worth from five to seven per cont, per annum,
an I yet no planter caa ger au advance except at
i he rate of i rom oue an I a half per cenc. to two
and two and a hair per cent, a month. It proves
what we endeavored to show, thst the laws or
trade and interest, which ure fixed, are not to be
regulated by the fluctuating quotations of the
Let us (Some to the discussion of this question
fairly, and not as partisans. We restate The
law of legir.lmHte finance as put by Mr. Stuart
Mill. Mic Charleston and Savannah papers, the
Chamber or Commerce ..nd he Board of Trade,
wc do noe c introvert. The argument ls fair and
l.glcal. the conclusion just and convincing. We
yield our assent. But this ls not the question
which the harieston and Savannah factors and
dealers have m ide with the plantera and farmers.
Tney have forced upon them the speculative,
gambling transactions ol the Hold Room of New
York as th? legit?mate rate or leerest for money,
per annum. In other words, they borrow their
money at from Ave to seven per cent. ' ye?r. and
take, advantage of the necessities or .e planter
and Tanner to extort twelve to twenty-five per
cent, a year, exclusive of com mH.dons. The com?
bination for tills purpose, we say, Ls not iuterest,
it ls extortion.
Wc, therefore, repeat, go on. Mr. wilkes, the
rural communities B?stalo you; and If you sue
ceed In securing the passage or a law which will
check this system of extortion, you will deserve
and receive tuc thanks of the agricultural and la?
boring popal itioii.

TERRIBLE CONFLAGRATION AT SEA
The Ship A. B. "Wyman Struck li y
Lightning on her Voyage from Sa?
vannah to Liverpool-Two Days in a
Floating Cauldron-The Vessel and
Twenty-seven Hundred Bales or Cot?
ton Entirely Consumed-Timely Res?
ene of the Crew by the Belgian Ship
[From Hie New York Herald, of Friday.]
"Burned to the water's edge, slr.
"And the crew, captain ?"
"Saved, thank God ? every man or 'em."
"The cargo, or course, was-?"
"Phew ! my dear sir, a rew minutes artet the
men were taken off thc rhlp the Ure burst through
the mala hatch, and we had hardly squared away
when the vessel, cargo . nd rigging were envel?
oped iu the flames. It was a fearful sight, and one
that I will never forget."
These were the remarks of Captain Lachere, of
the ship Charle, of Antwerp, when questioned In
relation to the terrible calamity w .ich, on the 10th
Instant, berel the lll-tatel vessel A. B. Wyman,
bound Tor Liverpool from Savannah. The story
was, in many particulars, a sad realization ol the
numerous romances which, brimful of terrible
scenes and Incidents, often feed the fancy of the
curious. No narrower escape from Are or the
merciless fury of the ocean has occurred for years,
and although a vast amount of property has been
swallowed up by thc disaster, lt is some consola?
tion to think that
A BRAVE AND UNDAUNTED CREW
has, by the kindness of an AU-wlse Providence
and the gallantry or a courageous and sympathiz?
ing sea captain and his helpmates, been rescued
from a horrible death. The ship C: aries. 70S tons
register, left Antwerp on November 2, with nal
lasr, for this city. She came the northers pas?
sage, and enjoyed tine weather nntll she neared
the banks or Newfoundland, and when in latitude
30 degrees and longitude Ol degrees 43 minutes
she hove to for the night in a heavy gale. About
six miles to windward she sighted a ship at seven
o'clock next morning, flying thc flags of distress
'rom her ford-top and mlzzen-top. The storm of
the preceding night had been accompanied by
LOUE' THUNDER CLAT3
and vivid flashes of lightning, and. althongh the
weather hud now moderated, a mighty swell re?
mained. Thc ship in tba distance, which subse?
quently proved to be the Ai B. Wyman, was steer?
ing south under tops dis. As thc two vessels
gradually neared euch other a
TRICK COLUMN OP SMOKE
was seen to ascend from the deck or thc A. B.
Wyman, whose captain, bearing the same name
as the ship, afterwards stated had been allowed
to escape to attract attention. It was. Indeed, a
melancholy signal, but dangerous as lt was it ap?
peared to be t ne only one feasible for the purpose.
And so the two ships came close together. Loud
above tho monotonous roar of the rolling sea
came forth the shrill and earnest cry,
"MY SHIP'S ON FIRE I"
It was thc despairing appeal of the captain of the
Wyman, and who cotdd heartlessly turn a dear
ear to such a call ? Cat-fain Lachere did not, at all
events, aud quickly bore down upon the burning
ship. Dc saw the top of her malnroyal mast* had
broken off and bunging down, but with that ex?
ception no other evidences or damage were ap?
parent. And?*ot to thc eye or tho seaman there
were presented marked and decided tokens-the
last visible symptoms or Ute poor
SAILOR'S FORLORN HOPE,
the lifeboats-for they were suspended from thc
davit , Ulled with provisions, and ready to be
launched with human freight amid ocean, and
In a raging sea. When the Charles hove to a boat
was put off from the A. B. Wyman with the mate
and two men, who, though tossed about, moved
"Come over and s?o the ship, slr," sung out the
mate; "the captain wants you."
The boat came alongside thc Charles, and with
a pluck that merits commendation, Captain La?
chere promptly responded to the summons and
crossed over to the buming ship. Tko object lu
asking Captain Lachere on board the A. B. Wy?
man was doubtless to reve il to him the true and
terrible state of affairs. Captain Lachere states
that on coming close to thc starboard side of thc
vessel the hear, was oppressive, while thick, vol
limo? nt smoke were oozing oat it-rough; M?
seams. Captain Wyman welcomed his timely
and nonle-heartcd guest with all thc cordiality
which the occasion permitted, and qulcklv ex?
plained the condition of the vessel. The situation
wns dreadful to contemplate. The crew, in im?
minent danger, were naturally excited, while the
cargo of cmton, valued nt over $200,000, was
about to become a moro terrible foe than the
fiercest hurricane that ever raged. Captain Wy?
man stated that In the midst of a dread-ul storm
two nights before the malnroyal masthead hud
STRUCK EY LIGHTNING, .
that the electric fluid had gone through the coat
or the mainmast and passed down Into the hold.
At the time thc casualty occurred but little notice
was taken ol it, and it was not until the smoke
began to ascend that the thought of are suggest?
ed itself. The captain of the ship immediately
gave orders to make everything alr-tlgnt below,
stuning up all places of ventilation, and, chang?
ing his ourse, hoped to reach thc laud m time or
m. et some friendly vessel- on 1 he way. She had
been two days and nights in this condition when
she was sighted by Captain Lachere. Arrived on
board, after some dlfflcultv, that g -ntleman found
everything very much heated, the cabin suffocating
and the crew ready to take to thc boats as thc last
resort. The Dre was raging in the lower 'tween
decks. Having tried her main pumps, he discov?
ered that thc water In the. t mks. which contained
over ten thousand gallons, was almost boiling
"hot enough,'' Bald thc captain yesterday, "to
boll an egg." Captain Lachere readily surmised
that thc ship must bs foll or Ure, and considering
lt unsure to remain much longer on board, gene?
rously Invited captain Wyman and his crew to
the Charles. Thinking pcrhupe that there was
yet time to get something off the floating caul?
dron, Captain Wyman Inquired whether be should
bring some provisions, but Captain Lachere,
DANGEROUS TO OPEN ANY DOORS
before leaving the ship, declined the offer, and
taking only a row nails wiri ropes prepared to quit
the ship for ever. Meanwhl e, a craw of the
Charles, consisting of Randolph Schulte, second
mate, Edward Dcpaurl, winiam Jasper and Cor?
nelius Clow, seamen, put forth in a yawl ra thc
rescue of those of their brethren on the A. H. Wy?
man. There was a heavy swell nt thc time, and
the terribly snrfoctitmg heat iront the vessel ren?
dered thc experiment exceedingly d IIB colt. Hav?
ing examined everything. Captain Lachere, after
two hours' stay, prepared to leave the ship. But
TUE LAST SCENE
was frightful to behold. The ship lay rocking on
the deep, enveloped lu a tinge cloud of smoke,
and every instant a conflagration was antici?
pated. The cuilre crew of fourteen men having
bee" taken off, Captain Wyman went forward,
and in presence or Captain Lachere and three or
his men, opened the main hatch. Gut belched the
flames witn a roar as if exulting In freedom, and
the work of conflagration was begun. It was
A BUSH FOR LIFE,
and hurrying down the sides of the Ill-starred
ship thc last batch of human beings on board
cleared her with rapid strokes. It was well tiley
did so. Tue bales 01 cotton partly released, burn?
ed with terribie rapidity. The smoke had full vent,
and In about ten minutes after the lost boat left
the A. B. Wymun. the Ure had extended to every
portion of her. The crackling of the burning
Umbers, the fury and noise of the conflagration
and the splashing cr spars in the water, us they
tumbled down in quick succession, are stated to
have been something terrible- The two vessels
were not more than a couple of cable's 'length
apart, and Just so soon as the rescued party
scrumblcd on board the Ch tries, thar gail in:, ship
squared away to tue westward, ihe wind being
anoitsouthwe.it, nnrl the distance from New
York about nine hundred miles. It was, per?
haps, onebf the happiest voyages ever made ny
s.ime ol' them, for If ever there was a hairbreadth
escape whose terrors may ne recalled with, won?
der, this W is one ol them. Gupiam Wyman and
his crew returned their grateful ihtuks io Cap
ram Lachere, and most worthily did he deserve
them. The Charles arrived here yesterday mora
lug lu good sh i pe, and
LANDED TUE CATTAIN AND CREW
of the A. B. Wyman safely on shore. Captain
Wrman having mane arrangements with hts
men, proceeded with I1L1 drat and si-coad mates to
Boston, to which city thc ship belonged. She
WHB about SIS tons register, and was b alt in iso?

"No vessel," said he, "should go to sea with?
