The information obtained irom papers seized

conspiracy was extensive. The members were
sworn to exterminate the enemies of the re?

some on the ground that nothing should be
attempted until the arrival of the Duke of

prevailed. Lots were drawn lor three persons
to undertake the killing of Prim. It ls said

Bombardment of Pari a-Interesting
Statements ana Speculations.
The Germans "have opened the ball against
Paris, not by that bombardment of the capital
so often predicted as about to begin, and
postponed for so many unintelligible reasons,
but against the redoubts or earthworks on
Mount Avron. six miles east ot the city walls.
This temporary defence has been a source of
great annoyance to the Germans. From it
the Forest of Bondy has been raked with
shells, the advanced posts of the enemy made
uncomfortably hot, their cannons dismounted,
and in Ducrot's sortie of December 1st it great?
ly aided the French op?rai ions against /?agny
and Maison Blanche. 1 he New York Journal
of Commerce, referring to the "situation," re?
If the Germans had no idea of bombarding
Paris, it would be necessary, for their own se?
curity, to silence the guns of Avrdn. Suppose
they succeed in taking lt. They will then be
no better off for reducing Paris? Over the six
miles which stretch between lt and the capi?
tal their siege guns will probably not carry.
The holding ol Avron by its captors will be a
very difficult task. The formidable fort of
4Cosny, and the earthwork batteries which
flank it, will rake Avron with a terrible fire.
But allowing that Rosny ls luself captured after
Avron, the former fort will then be the centre
of a feu <Tenjer? from Forts Romainville, Noisy
and "Nogent, which will make the chances
three to one against the Prussians keeping
Rosny. The external system of the defences
of Paris has Its Defects; but this great and
crowning merit, that except possibly on the
west side, where Mont Valerien keeps Its grim
watch and ward over a large tract of country,
the fons are so near together that any two
cauchy a direct pounding'Dre, destroy any in?
termediate fortification which ill-luck may put
in the enemy's hands.
Unless two forts lying contiguous can be
captured simultaneously, the Germans have,
therefore, little to hope from attempting to re?
duce those defences. The operation against
Avron is more likely to be, as we have sug?
gested, an expedient to promote the saftey
and comfort of the besieging lines, which it
constantly threatens, than a step taken as the
first in a series for the reduction of Pari-by
bombardment and assault. Could thc Prus?
sians capture and hold Avron, they could close
up their ranks a little at that point, aud make
the'cordon tighter against future sorties.
That itself would pay for the D ouble and loss
lnevitablein the undertaking, lithe Germans
had or have a serious idea of bombarding
Paris, why hav? they not done so ? For over
seventy days Krupp's big gus have been
riding in a railway direct fromEssen, and now
gape with their black ugly mouths on tho dis?
tant city. They are all In position, and have
been for weeks, If the Versailles correspondents
speak the truth. But is not their presence
there rather a feint and threat than an arm to
be actually wielded in reducing the city ? lt
seams to-us that they are, though later intelli
.gtute may cause a change in our opinion. '
All thc fac?a before us point to starva
the simple ond-sate agency on which tl
mans rely to gain their end. By the be

science and all culture, enshrined in tl
Hunt oliy on the Seine. The public opli
mankind, outside of Germany, ls agall

Another point : The experience of all
show that it ls not wiso to heap too
humiliation on a vanquished foe. N
woul'L be such salt and vinegar in the

pieces and sack the city which is het
and pride. She would never, never lor
forgive lt; whereas time may at last h
all the other hurts which she has recel
may receive from her foe in the U3ual <
With Paris seemingly safe in the net, t
the reasops that we have given movii
Germans to depend on starving her out,
pears as if a bombardment will be i
menace, and not executed. If attemptc
German shells can hardly touch more thi
outskirts of the city, and her Inhabitant
like those of Strasbourg, can find shell
ward the centre, and lh?r surrender mt
be expedited by a single day; for ali ace
agree that Paris is nerved up to a pitch c
peration which makes nearly all human
fices possible. The bombj Jmeut of
might be the means ol' arousing her pi
and those of all the French provinces, to
deeds of reckless valor as would endangt
retention of the advantages which the pr<
ot Germany has thus far gained.
Disagreement as to the Bombar?n
The London Times' correspondent at I
says it Is asserted on what he has reason l
lleve good author Ky, that from the outset
Royal Headquarters were not agreed or
subject of the bombardment of Paris.
"General Count Moltke, as well as Ge
von Blumenthal, the chief of the G
Prince's Staff, and Colonel Rieff, the com
der of the siege artillery, from the very
looked with diffidence upon the ard
undertaking of reducing '?ucli a fortres
powder and shot. They certainly though
thing-practicable,-but long and difficult,
knowing Paris to be but scantily provided,
lerred the safer and less sanguinary melin
starving it out. Their arguments were
posed By Count 3ismarck and General
Roon, the Minister of War, urging thc pr
ety of an attack, vere lt only to hasten
effect of hunger, produce a-strong Irapref
upon the inhabitants, and dispel the drean
inviolability fostered by the tirades of a Vi
Hugo and his friends. According as thc
or the other opinion prevailed, the langi
of official organs varied, until at last it cei
altogether. The last decision was a soi
compromise between the two opijo
opinions, but it Is of course more than
one can tell whether events have not cai
it to be r.: aln superseded." The Lom1 on Ii

sels, dated December ll: "A trusty mes

to this conclusion, but, it ls sald,'he ls fort
to consider his soldiers, who begin to compl
that the Parisians are being spared at their i
Sense, and urge htm to put an end to an. i
eatable period ol' suspense. His Majesty a
feels that it is a greater cruelty to stai
a couple of hundred thousand non-combata
than to kill a certain number by shelling i
city. He ls. again, much irritated by the fe
ol the Parisians in holding out when their 1
hope of relief Irom the forces In the field ls (
stroyed-the more so as General Trochu hi
self declared ? publicly some time ago tl
'Paris could not protract her resistance unit
the provinces came to her aid.' In the ne
place he is constantly being urged to "ake t
treme measures by those upon whose Jut
m eui he places the greatest reliance. Despi
these facts, hie Majesty has held out until no
but he ls believed to be yielding. His siste
death deeply affected him. The "Crown Princ
who broke the news, had taken precaulio
that the telegram annoimoing the royal lad]
decease, which had been expected for sevei
days, should not reach the King by any oin
hands than his own. The interview, betwei
the King and Crown Prince took place on tl

Publie Feeling In Germany.
The Prussian correspondent ol' the Londor
Times writes, November 30, ol the bltternesi
ol' the feeling against France :
In Prussia there are many people and papen
advising the government to accept the surren'
der of the hostile capital only if it consents t(
deliver up not herself alone, "but all France al
the same time. In other words, Parl3 ls nol
to be rescued from the pangs of hunger unless
Its government and people ratify the German
terms ol peace in advance, and, more particu?
larly, approve the cession ol the two coveted
provinces. The severity of this proposal will
give you an idea of the tone of the public mind
in this country. Arguing on the conviction
that as the French begun the war for vanity's
sake so are they continuing it because too con?
ceited to give in, although they know they have
no chance of success, the Germans having
been latterly denouncing the conduct of their
neighbors in terms of Increasing hatred and
contempt. No matter how great Hie glory
achieved by their troops, each successive bat?
tle adds to' the Irritation against those who
have loreed tne citizeu warriors of this coun?
try to leave their homes, suspend their indus?
try, and take to the heroic. The Germans are
certainly determined to go on beating, the
French as long as they will not concede them
the terms considered to contain tho only,
guarantee that peace will not be broken the
day after . its conclusion; but, at the same
time, they are sick ot the war, and more and
more incensed at the bloodshed wantoul"? in?
flicted upon themselves no less upon the dis?
comfited enemy. It ls this resolve to have
their own way, together with thc unspeak?
able weariness occasioned by ever fresh tele?
grams with lists ol' killed und wounded that
begin to make people comparatively indiffer?
ent to the sufferings of their adversaries, aud
??ready displays itself In the idea of starving
Paris into obedience. I believe the French had
better realize the tact that the enemy they
have to deal with is not likely to be "beaten
in a game ol endurance, and bein-r more sys?
tematic and cool-headed than themselves, may
turu his firmness to the utmost account.

German Intervention Sought in Behalf
of the Holy See-The Apostolic Xnneia
turo for Germany.
. Writing from Rome on December 4; the cor?
respondent of the Pall Mall Gazelto says :
Last week Father Kozmlan, secretary of
Mgr. Ledochowskl, Archbishop of Posen, ar?
rived herc from Versailles, and proceeded im?
mediately to the Vatican to visit Cardinal An?
tonella The next d:?y Father Zozraian was
received by the Pope, to whom he presented
a letter from the King of Prussia. The Arch?
bishop of Posen was sent to. Versailles
by the Holy Father to ask the King's
Intervention In favor of ' the Holy See;
and whatever you may see Etated in other
journals, I am In a position to in?
form you that his mission was successful.
The King tells the Holy Father that he can
take no active steps durl-g thc continuance
of the war with France, bu' that he will make
the cause of the Holy Sec his first thought as
soon as the conflict sholl cease. He even says
that he is In'accord on this point with France,
which is thought tn imply that he has come to
au understanding either with Napoleon IK or
Henry V. I hear a whisper, however, of his
promises being accompanied by a proposal
which gives them a Blsmarckian air, requiring
the Holy Father, alter the fall of Purls, to urge
thc French not to continue a hopeless strug?
gle. The Vatican retains a strong belief in
France, and the Holy Father will not allow
himself to be drawn into a mensure which the
French nation would never forgive. But there
ls no doubt that the King of Prussia has
need or the Pope's countenance in other
projects, one of which is his assumption
ot the imperial crown; and Count Bismarck,
will And il hard to attain his ends without tull
satisfaction to Cardinal Antonelli. The Vati?
can, Indeed, declares that this ls already given,
and, so lar as Prussian assurances go, there is
certainly some prospect of a restoration, In
some limited form, ol the temporal power.
The Archbishop of Posen has also arranged at
Versailles the affair ol' I he apostolic nunciature
for Germany. The nunciature lo Bavaria ls to
be suppressed, and one will be established at
Berlin for the whole of the new Empire. I
am informed that, in return for lils successful
negotiation, the Archbishop of Posen has been
created a cardinal in petto, and will himself
be nominated to the Berlin nunciature, with
the title ot Cardinal-Legate to Germany. His
elevation to the Sacred Collece will be an?
nounced in the next Consistory."
How the Franco-Prussian War was \ot
Prevented-An American Lady Involv?
ed in the Preliminaries-A Page or
The Washington Pntrlot publishes a curious
story, which it calls a page of secret history:
The world does not know that the war which
bas inflicted such untold calamities upon two
great nations, and turned back the hands of
progress on thc dial of civilization, might, and
probably would, not have occurred, but for a
cause entirely personal, and involving the
ambitious aspirations of one of our own coun?
trywomen. His Majesty, Dom Fernando,
father of the King of Portugal, somewhat sur?
prised European courts, as weil as his imme?
diate friends, by a sudden marriage,
eighteen months ago, willi Miss E. Hens
1er, to whom . he had been much
attached during nine previous years. She
was born in Boston, of respectable German
parents in humble lite, and educated in Italy
for the operatic stage,- by the aid ol a few
liberal patrons of art, who had discovered her
precocious talent for music and her fine vojee.
After completing her studies abroad, she' re?
turned to the United Stales, but fulled to
reach the emineuce of which lier carly youth
had given cheerlul promise. Seeking another
field for professional success, she went again
io Europe, and in 1860 became attached to the
Opera at Lisbon, where the widowed King
! onsort was llrst attracted by her beauty, vi?
vacity, and other charms. Then began the
acquaintance which terminated in hcr'becom
ing the wife of a Coburg who had shared the
throne of Portugal with Donna Marla II. Jost
previous lo the marriage the Duke of Saxe
Caburi: conferred upon her the title of Count?
ess d'Edla, so ns to obliterate even a nominal
connection wlih the past or with her American
That repeated overtures were made by Prim
and his colleagues to induce Dom Fernando
to accept the ihrone of Spain, is no secret. He
refused to give any encouragement to these
prooosals, and au effort in that direction,
made in the early part of 1869, only a few
months before his marriage, was repelled with
so much decision a3 to be considered even
rude to the Spanish people. But alter the
marriage came social embarrassments and
new ideas, which the government at Madrid
was prompt to seize upon, in the hope of over?
coming the prejudice of Dom Fernaudo, hythe
temptation of high honors for his wile, who,
by a transition to the Courl at Madrid, would
Uce?me the equal, if not the superior, ot those
who had welcomed her with coldness, and not
1 from choice. The Spanish minister at Lisbon
was instructed to approach his Majesty with
delicate suggestions, and found him willing to
entertain the subject; so thatinfortnal negotia?
tions were opened, and made considerable
progress last spring.
. Dom Fernando proposed certain conditions,
perhaps willi a view of ultimately dictating
the terms for a matter which was much nearer
his heart, as will appear in the sequel. For
example, he required that the crowns of Spain
and Portugal should never be united on the
same head, seeking by these means to preserve
the throne ol' Portugal for his son and his de?
scendants. After some discussion, the Spanish
Government accepted the condition, with this
modification: "Except if, in the course of lime,
the two nations should spontaneously .agree
upon a sovereign," &c. Dom Fernando refused
to adopt any reservation on that point. He
also demanded that certain amendments should
be made to the Spanish Constitution beiore ac?
cepting the throne; but thc government at
Madrid objected to submit that question to the
Cortes until after his election as king. These
negotiations occupied several months, and
were once or twice suspended entirely as hope?
less, but renewed by friendly intervention.
Finally they were broken off altogether, and
the causes already stated were assigned as the
reasons of thc failure.
But persons who are familiar with all the
facts attribute the rupture to another and a
very different motive. At one of the last In?
terviews between Dom Fernando and the
Spanish Minister, at which the Countess
d'Edla was present, his majesty Inquired what
would be the eventual position of his wife
should he go to Spaing After i utting thia
question he withdrew,'leaving Madame and
ttie'minister to settle the delicate point be?
tween them. The minister slated that she
was at liberty to name any title, distinction or
station, adding that she would always befihe
first lady of the palace. To which the Countess
replied: "So far so good; but his majesty de?
sires my position to bo as clear as possible.
What I wish to kuow is what will be my part
on great ceremonials like thc opening of the
Cortes, or other corresponding occasions ?"
The aim of this inquiry wi\s evident, and the
minister was not taken by surprise. He. re?
joined that she might be made a duchess or
grandee, or have any other title, but as "Queen
-never, never !"
This took place on the 13th of July, and
when the conferences were going on there
was a perfect understanding that thc refusal
ol Dom Fernando to take the throne would
involve the most grave complications,, and
probably the war which Is still raging; for it
was then known that the Spanish Government
intended to turn to his Majesty's son-in-law,
the Prince of Hohenzollern, if the negotiations
completely failed. As soon ns it became cer?
tain that there was no probability of inducing
Dom Fernando to go to Madrid, unless the
Countess d'Edla was recognized as Queen, the
offer was made to Hohenzollern. So lt may
be said that a great European war, willi all its
vast consequences, is to bc attributed to tbe
unsatisfied ambition of a Boston girl.
THE HORNET BROKE LOOSE.

The Herald has the following: "Our corres?

of the steamer Hornet at Nassau. The Cubans
at that place were much incensed at thc Gov?
ernor lor sending a British man-of-war to
watch her, but the lookout did not amount to
anything, the Hornet easily leaving her dis?
agreeable companion. It is reported that while
at Nassau she took on board an armament. If ]
this is the case she may give the Spaniards
much trouble, and we may hear ol opera?
tions on a scale similar to those of I
th? Alabama. In point of speed she ls
vastly superior to the Spanish fleet on the
coast of Cuba, but she may leave the West
Indian waters and try the Spanish home coast,
where she will be able to do much damage

General Depression or Trade-With?
?lroAvnl of Foreign Capital-Decline In
Honse Rents, die.
The Newark, New Jersey, Advertiser con?
tains an Interesting letter from New York,
from which we extract the following :
DEPRESSION* OF BUSINESS.
Many merchants will withdraw from busi?
ness at the end of the year. Some who have
already accumulated a fortune or a compe?
tence can see nothing In the Immediate future
to give them any hopes ot adding to lt It
wouid be a great error to atiribute prosperity
or depression in trade to any single cause.
Business is Influenced by numerous and con?
flicting circumstances. There are, however,
at present two influences growing out ot the
European war of such signal Importance that
it is worth while to call attention to them.
The first of these ls tlie ?rreat decline in cot?
ton, which affects not only the South, but all
parts ot the country which have business con?
nections with the South. The present cotton
crop was made wltii dear labor and at as great a
cost per pound ns any crop that preceded lt
At the current prices the planters will receive
less than sixty per cent, of the amount per
bale that they obtained last year. Cotton
mills, cotton speculators, and all dealers in
cotton goods have been subjected to a like de?
preciation In the value ot the stocks which
Uley have been carrying. Such a loss as this
In the most important staple of the country
cannot but have seriously diminished the
ability of those connected with lt to purchase
and consume all articles of merchandise.
WITHDRAWAL OF FOREIGN CAPITAL.
The other depressing influence to which
business has been subjected by the war ls the
stoppage'of that stream of foreign capital
which has for the last six or seven years stead?
ily flowed Into the United States. I am oblig?
ed to speak somewhat' metaphorically, bnt I
will endeavor to make my meaning clear.
Hitherto the value of our exports has not bal?
anced that ot the Imports added to the interest
payable to foreigners on United States bonds
and other securities which they hold. The
difference, amounting, at a moderate calcula?
tion, to upwards of a hundred millions of dol- j
lars a year, ls added to the foreign capital al?
ready Invested here, or, If you prefer the ex?
pression, to the sum of our loreign indebted?
ness. Germany and Pranoe are no longer in a
posllion to buy our government bonds and
railway mortgages, and England will soon he
able to obtain from other countries a higher
rate of interest than we can afford to pay here.
In spite of the sixty millions of specie that
have been sent from New York this year, and
the export of a much greater quantity of pro- j
dime and merchandise than we ever shipped
in twelve months belore, the rates of sterling
exchange are still against us. .
Paving debtor breaking up a confirmed habit
of contract! og them, is certainly a most ealutary
exercise, but such an effort as the Cnlted
Sates will shortly be called upon to make can?
not be carried out without a severe pressure
upon thu commercial interests of Hie country.
It necessarily involves either a diminished use
ol foreign goods or an Increased export of our
own, and In either case we have the less to
consume. The prodigal extravagance which
was bred of the war and of the demoralizing
Issues of imper money has been slowly subsid?
ing tor some time, and yet there still exists In
this city many traces of lt Hotel and restau?
rant pnces are upheld with amazing pertina?
city, and people yet consent to pay a mon?
strous share ot their income for house rent.
THE TUMBLE IN* RENTS.
I will mention a few instances to show the
direction which rents are taking. A large
store, a little further down town than the
present centre of the dry goods business, was
leased a lew years ago at $16,000 per annum
for five years. Thc lessees having failed, thc
store was rented lost! year at $10,000. The
tenants now decline to pay more than $8000,
and a bill on the premises tor several months
has failed to attract any one who will pay more
than the lost named sum. A store which
rented tour years ago at $18,000 is now held at
srj.ooo. but does not rind a tenant though
it has been In Hie market for a month. Though
Broadway landlords are satisfied to accept the
lowest prices of last year, tenants are unwil?
ling to pay them, and demand a reducUon. A
large store erected on Caaal street nearly two
years ago, for which the owners refused an
offer oi $24,000 rent while building, has never
been occupied, and has recently been leased
at $13,500 per annum. A shoe dealer has
taken lor $7500 a year a store on Broadway,
near Pearl street lor which the present oc?
cupant pays $14,000 a vear on a long lease.
.The same man was offered two other stores on
Broadway, in tlie saine vicinity, at $4000 less
than the present, tenants are now paying, oh
leases which are about to expire. Bents '
for offices in Wall street and vicinity are taking
the same direction, as many of the brokers
and lawyers are having rather a hard struggle
for existence Just now.
MR. BOUTWELL AND WALL STREET.
. The chief event of tlie week on Wall street
'ha3 been the Increasing stringency in the
money market The money reserves ol the
banks have been drawn down to a very low
point and iL is said that speculators for a tail
in stocks have resorted to their old expedient
of locking up greenbacks. Call loans have
ruled Irom seven per cent, currency to seven
per cent gold. Now, since the effect of these
periodical stringencies In. money ls unfavora?
ble to oil the business interests ot the country,
and depresses tne vaiue or united s
bonds along with all other securities,
thought strange that Secretary Boutwell,
a clear balance of over a hundred mllllo
the treasury, nearly thirty millions of whl
in currency, should not increase his pnrcl
of bonds. The Inelasticity of our curren
an evil which we derive from the leglslatl
our national government, und we may lo?
thc treasury to make that evil as little op
sive as circumstances will permit. Mr. :
well, by buying three millions of bonds in:
ol one during each of the coming w<
would save the payment ol' interest on se1
millions, and break-up an unprincipled s]
latipn which can only succeed by dlstui
the buslnees and credit of the commu
The neglect of Mr. Boutwell to buy i
bonds and reduce his immense baluru
generally censured, and cannot but add ti
disfavor in which his high taxation notion
held by the public. .

Considering the extreme sensitiveness of the ha
man body, and that it ls unprotected except b;
artificial covering, from the action of cold, it l
not strange that at .this seas jn lt ls liable to man:
disorders. Thc skin exercises a powerful mau

digestive organs never perform their office prop

of the system, which should be discharged in ?ar
through the perspiratory glands, having no . .bei
outlet than the bowels and the kidneys, constipa
tion and a variety of venal diseases are more oi
less prevalent. Dyspepsia, where it exisrs, is ?1st
aggravated by these causes. The most effective
preventive of, and remedy for, disturbances ol
this nature is UOSTRtTER'S STOMACH BIT?

the stomach and thc intestines, Imparnngto those
important organs both activity and regularity.
.It also operates as a suporltlc by toning the ves?

exhausted ma'tir through that'natural sieve of
the system. Being a mild diuretic, it givea a
