War Declared-France ?nd PraMla
Driin their Swords.
Tho difficulty brewing for somo days
past, between France and Prussia, has
culuiiuatod in a declaration of war. Our
telegraphic columns furnish tho latest
uews upon the subject. French and
Prussian columna arc moving each with
eelerity to the historic Rhine. As when
two clouds, each surcharged with elec?
tric fluid, are rapidly approaching, and
we look to soo the sharp lightning, and to
hear tho deafening clap of thunder, BO
now an expectant world contemplate
with interest the meeting of tho French
und Prussian columns, and are awaiting
the glittering of steel and the roar of
Tho issue will be settled between the
needle-gun and the Chassejiot, and the
genius that triumphed at Sadowa is to
try tho metal of thatjwhich conquerod at
Magenta and Solferino:
The contest has come which we ex?
pected. Two great powers contend for
tho mastery in Europe, and the question
hos been left to the arbitrament of tho
sword. The struggle will be a grand one.
Both Franco and Prussia have vast mili?
tary resources, and each will put forth
all its strength. How far tho circle of
' war will extend,1 no one can accurately
tell. It may widen until it sets all
Europe ablaze, and gives it a new map.
Nothing is moro astonishing than tho
rapidity with which the public loses in?
terest in old issues and becomes absorb?
ed in new ones. Such a transition stnto
is now being undergone at the North, iu
which the negro is fast beiug lost sight
of in the magnitude of the great labor
and trade problems. From present ap?
pearances, the old and never to be ended
war between labor and capital is, in a
new form, to supercede all other ques?
tions of partisan policy in this country,
for at least a score of years to como. If
any confirmation of these views were
wanting, we can Teadily discover it in
the avidity with which prominent politi?
cians, always first to feel the public pulse,
are now seiziug every occasion offered,
in Congress or out of it, to array them?
selves as leaders on one or the other sides
of the question. Nor are the public
journals bohiud in the race. For ouce
an issue comes before the country supe?
rior to, and entirely independent of auy
political organization, aud possessed of
elements requiring au entirely new di?
vision of parties-and one purely sec?
tional in its nature. The consequence
is, that we fiud tho great lights of Rad?
icalism and Democracy about equally di?
vided in their councils, aud everythiug
indicates their absorption by an entirely
fresh division. Already tho papers of
the Eastern aud Middle States boldly
charge the West with fomenting rebel?
lion, because tho latter insist upon anew
apportionment of representation, which
will largely increase their strength in
Congress. The East does not hesitate
to say that this must be resisted; that
commercial and manufacturing interests
must not be left subject to the control of
a more plurality of numbers. Of the
temper iu which this controversy is con?
ducted, the following extract from a
promiueut Pennsylvania radical journal
will afford an illustration:
"Wo called attention to the extreme
danger of this Western fanaticism at tho
outset of tho trouble, aud said that it
bade fair to be as ultra as that of the
South had ever beeu. Our views were
endorsed by influential Eastern journal?
ists; but tho Pittsburg press seemed to
think wo were making danger, rather
than guarding against it. Nevertheless,
it has all happened just as wo foresaw.
The Chicago Tribune braves tho power
of the National Government, dares Con?
gress to be governed by tho regular laws
of apportionment rather than by West?
ern dictation, and threatens that the
West will not submit. Of course, it
hopes to bc backed up in this by the re?
bellious element at the South, in which,
we think, it will bu mistaken. Tho
South has had an ample trial ut olecting
representatives ou its own account, and
then daring Congress to reject them.
Congress has dared over and over again,
and will dare do it again in the case of
thc Western rebels. Tho middle States,
which resist this scheme, aro all gainers
in tho representation under tho new
census, or what it is expected to bc."
As the prosperity of the South und
West now depends mainly upon a boun?
tiful supply of cheap labor, aud as cheap
labor is entirely inconsistent with high
revenuo duties and oppressive taxation,
both of which are of vital necessity to
the welfare of the East-tho policies of
tho two sections are necessarily opposed.
For a time, owing to tho vast resources
of our country, and the patience of our
people, tho conflict has been delayed.
But tho necessity of a constant increase
in protection, to meet tho constantly iu
creasing demands of labor organizations,
was all the while tending toward that
point where the balauce could nu longer
bo maintained. Opportunely, as though
designed by Providence, tho completion
of the Pacifia Railroad at almost the
same time, has placed the country within
reach of an inexhaustible supply of the
cheapest labor on the face of the earth
thns precipitating tho issue with the real
and i rn m i nun t danger of a labor revolu?
tion. Upon thu question of Chinese
immigratiou, therofore, tho first groat
campaign of a loug aud bitter contest is
This is to bo the dawn of the great in?
evitable strife Lord Macaulay prophe?
sied a quarter of a century ugo, as likely
to test not only tho stability of our in?
stitutions, but our political faith and
existence. Free labor is only tho key to
free trade, and long ere the fate of tho
pig-tail is decided, both principles will
be written in" tho samo party gospel.
This, then, is to bo tho bone of conten?
tion in future elections. On tho ono
hand will bo arrayed all the manufactur?
ing and a majority of tho commercial
interests. Upon the other all the agri?
cultural and other industrial interests.
John Chinaman is to bo tho watchword,
the piece de resistance, just as the negro
was in tho lute unhappy war-tho wedgo
driven in between the pi i-ctive and
free trado policies, splitting ti.,1 popular
vote of tho couutry into two great par?
ties, both sectional and both selfish in
their naturo. We eau, therefore, regard
with some amusement the efforts made
hythe "old wool dyed," full of sacred
traditions and strong in mouldy creeds,
to rally their skeleton forces sud galvan?
ize some lifo iuto parties that died with
tho issues that begot them. Hence?
forth, at sea upou the futuro, surround?
ed on every hand with new dangers, wo
will havo but little time for old memo?
ries. Tho struggle will bc oue in which
bread and butter will bo too closely in?
volved to permit of fine-spun theories, or
their political abstractions.

Tbe currant number of the Overland

with mitmt? accuracy, a chain of events,
which for ghastly horror are probably
without equal in authentic records. The
tale realizes, in troth, the frightful de?
nunciation of Othello; for in it "on
horror's head horrors accumulate," and
surely imagination can picture nothing
in tho wny of tho piteous and awful more
extreme than what was Buffered by the
unfortunates concerned. lu various
forms, by books, nowspnpers, und moro
frequeutly, by private report, tho story
has buen told; for it happen eil long ago
-iu 1816-before Captain gutter had
mndo his discovery, and before every old
whaler from Casco Bay lo Hatteras had
been fitted up, to bravo once more tho
perils of Capo Hom. But mnuy have
persisted in disbelieving it. It was too
horrible, they said, to believe. Aud it ia
true that there seemed to be a raw-head
aud bloody-bones air about tho narra?
tive that more frequently attends fiction
than fact, uud which, nt all events, lent
warrant to the suspicion that it had beou
expanded and embellished. There is,
however, no doubt about tho melancholy
truth of it; and tho minuto accouut uow

Donner Lake-named uftcr tho leader
of the party who met their death hard
by-is one of tho most picturesque uud
lovely spots among the elevated valleys
of tho Sierra Nevada. "Starvation
Camp"-tho immediate scouo of the
calamity -is close at baud, nud by it
mus tho railroad, a straugo contrast iu
tho plenty aud succor it suggests to tho
helpless misery the spot once witnessed.
Tho Donner party left their home for tho
Pacific slopo iu search of a healthful and
eligible soil, aud having penetrated this
great distauce toward thoir promised
laud, were "snowed up" near tito lake.
Their Indian guido, ono Truckee, warn?
ed them oue afternoon that dreadful
weather was at baud, and urged them to
push ou. But-for tho grouud was as
yet uncovered-they had found wood,
water and grass, aud determined to halt
for tho night. lu the morning, a foot
of snow hud fallen, and their cuttle bad
wandered away so that fow of them
could bo found. Alarmed, the way?
farers begau to build cabins and to take
such other measures as they could to
protect themselves from tho elements.
The snow continued to fall, and present?
ly became impassable. In u few days,
it was eight feet deep. During nearly
tho whole of November, the long storm
continued, and the snow ou thu moun?
tains ultimately reached a depth of more
than twenty feet.
There wero eighty-two souls in tho
party, thirty-two being women and a
large proportion children. Tho Cap?
tain, George Donner, was a man of souio
sagacity aud considerable wealth, aud
his wife and children being with him,
had every incentive to prudence and ac?
tivity. But all efforts to escapo from
their frightful situation proved vaiu. lu
a short time everything in tho shape of
wholesome food was goue. They de?
voured their dogs, tho hides of tho cat
tlo they had saved aud their own boots
aud shoes. Finally the miserablo crea?
tures begau to think of eating each other.
At this period u death occurred-thus
deferring thu need for violeaco, sud
horrible to relate, tho corpso was eagerly
consumed. Other deaths followed, aud
tho survivors continued fr? ?ubsist on the
flesh of their dead companions. After
six weoks, tho storr;;- having subsided,
eight meu aud live women, guided by
two Indian;), set out to try to make their
way to California. Tho hopes of all that
remained hung ort their efforts, and they
struggled desperately to succeed. But
in a week, and before they had passed
tho Divido, this forlorn hope was again
overwhelmed by snow. Three died al?
most at once, and the rest ato their
bodies. "Having," says tho Overland
Monthly, "now been without a morsel to
eat for four days, thoso wretched people
cut tho flesh from tho bodies of thc dead,
aud having refreshed themselves upon a
portion of it aud dried tho balauce foi
future use. again pushed on. This was
their New Year's feast, it now being tho
first day of January, 1847. Fivo days
later their food was again all gone, aud
they had only tho strings of their snow?
shoes left to eat."
Tho unhappy wretches then desired to
devour their ludion guides; but tho lat?
ter, seeing their intention, lied over the
hills and were seeu uo moro. On the
17kh of January all but three of tho thir?
teen were dead, and of the survivors two
laid dowu to die. The third had fallen
in with a friendly Indian, who conduct?
ed bim to a settlement on Bear Uiver.

What tho benevolent advonturcre
found almost beggars description. Those
that had died remained whero their last
sigh had been breathed-but they were
stripped of their flesh. "Bodies half de?
voured layjstrown around tho dismal cab?
ins, from which issued a stifling ftutor "
of thoso who yet lived.
"Not only were their bodies enfeebled
and emaciated to the last degroe, but
with many tho very soul had become n
desolation. While some welcomod theil
deliverers with ecstacies of joy, others,
gloomy and cadaverous, regarded thom
with a coldnoss amounting almost to in?
difference, they having becomo not onlj
reconciled to thoir cannibalistic diet, bul
preferring it to wholesome food when eel
before thom. Monstrous os it may seem,
to such au extent had tho natural tastes
of somo of these people becomo pervert?
ed that thoy pushed aside the flour aud
bacoti tendered them, choosing rathei
to partake of tho horrid 1 feast to whick
thoy had so long been accustomed. Pa?
rents were seen feediug on tho remains
of their children, and children ou those
of their parents. Uero a wife was broil
ina on tho coals the flesh of her husband,
ana elsewhere a company were making a
repast upon the roasted limb of n dead
companion. AH filial and parental affec?
tion seemed dead, tho one instinct of
self-preservation reigning supreme.
Rapidly somo of those most wretched
creatures were being transformed into
ghouls and demons, having already lost
many of tho divino traits of humanity.
Haggard and attenuated, they spoke but
little, while their looks and demeanor
woro wild and unoarthly. Too incredi?
ble for beliof aro the stories told of the
ravenous groed exhibited by somo of
theso starving wretches, ono of whom is
said to have eaten tho entiro body of a
child during tho courso of a singlo night;
while another insisted on appropriating
to his own use tho hearts and othor visce?
ra of his dead oompanious. Ou the
other hand, many refused lo touch tho
flesh of those who had perished uutil tho
very last, and then partook of it sparing?
ly, aud with evidont feelings of horror."
Thirty-six of tho company had perish?
ed, aud many of tho remainder were on
tho point of doing so. Amid devasta?
tion nud woo, thero were gleams of hero?
ism that almost seemed needful to show
that theso afflioted souls shared a com?
mon humauity. Donner, the leader,
was too far reduced to be taken forward
by tho rescuing party. His wifohad hor
choice to be saved with her childreu or
to stay behind and die with her husband.
With wonderful fortitude and devotiou,
aud iu spite of his earnest entreaties,
sho chose the latter. Auother man, one
Keisburgb, was also too weak to bo re?
moved. The rest were taken iu safety to
California. In the following April, an?
other small party repaired to Douuer's
Dake, to see if by chance either of those
left behind yet survived. They found
Keisburgb living, ho having subsisted
for several weeks upon tho body of Mrs.
Donner, who bad died soou after her
husband. The story is almost too shock?

and trust worthy instance of thc beha?

circumstances of which it is possible to
conceive, the narrative has au iu ter est

AGRICULTURE.-Thc Buhner of thc
South says :
No botter evidcuee can produced of
tho determination of tho Southern peo?
ple to develope their immense industrial i
resources than is observable iu tho num?
ber and character of the agricultural aud
mechanical societies which uro springing
up throughout thc country. Proviousto
the war, Agricultural Societies wero very
little thought of-tho naturally fertile
soil and poculiar system of labor, left
comparatively littlofor tho rich husband?
man to think of. Ho had laud nud lubor
in abundance and subject to his call. As
a cons?quence, tho wealthy and indepen?
dent lord of tho soil turned his ambition
to other pursuits thau the noble ouo of
tilling tho ground.
But tho war and the steru hard truths
that its results have taught us, chauged
the aspect of men's minds. Nothing was
left to us but our lauds, and that indomi?
table will and pluck which our Anglo
Saxon ancestry planted upon the virgin
soil of Virginia, the Carolinas and Geor?
gia, and which, true to its history, shows
tho more brightly nuder tho trying and
desperato ordeal of the unequal and
bloody contest from which wo have just
emerged. The brilliant intellect of tho
Southern people, which, before tho war,
made tho halls of tho National Congress
celebrated and respected throughout tho
world, is hoard there now no moro. We
aro no moro a nation of politicians.
That samo intellect and talent made us
so pre-eminent ns a people in the past
exists still. But tho logic of eveuts hus
diverted our intelligeuco into new chan?

into that most exalting and honorable of
THE BATTLE OF MANASSAS.-Tho cor?
respondence botween President Davis
and General Joseph E. Johnston, after
tho first battle of Manassas, in respoct to
the responsibility for tho latter's failure
to follow up his victory and march upon
Washington, has just como to light
through tho columus of the Mississippi
Clarion. Mr. Davis, under dato of No?
vember 3, 1PG1, asked General Johnston1
whether ho (Mr. Davin), "obstructed the
pursuit of the enemy after tho victory at
Manassas," or "oveu objected to au ad?
vance or other active operations which
it was feasible for tho army to make."
General Johnson's reply is as follows:
To tho first question I reply no. Tho
pursuit was obstructed by tho enemy's
troops nt Centreville, as I have stated in
my official report. In that report I have
also said why no advance was mado upon
tho enemy's capital, for reasons aa fol?
lows: Tho apparent freshness of the
United States troops at Centreville,
which checked our pursuit; tho strong
force occupying tho works near George?
town, Arlington and Alexandria; tho
certainty too that General Patterson,
if needed, v.'ould reach Washington
with his army of moro than 30,000
sooner than we could, and the condition
and inadequate means of tho army in
ammunition, provision and transporta?
tion, prevented any serious thoughts of
advancing against tho capital.
To tho second question I reply that it
has never been feasible for tho army to
advance farther than it has dono-to tho
lino of Fairfax Court House, with its ad?
vanced posts nt Upton's, Munson's and
Mason's hills. After a conference at
Fairfax Court Houso with tho threo
senior generul officers you announced it
to bo impracticable to givo this army
tho strength which thoso officers con?
sidered necessary to enable it to assume
tho offensive. Upon which I drow it
back to its present position.

The Reform Movement as Viewed
The Now York World referring to the
paper put forth by the Executive Com?
mittee of the Union Reform party,
"Thero ?ire only two conceivable reme?
dies for this deplorable state of things:
one by depriving tho negroes of the
suffrage; the other by abandoning that
mutual hostility of the two races which
radicals and carpet-baggers have so in?
dustriously fomented. Thefirstof these
remedies might bo the best if it were
practicable; but it would be a wild and
crazy quixotism to attempt it. It could
uot bo accomplished without plunging
the country into another civil war, aud
we havo had quito enough of tho bitter
fruits of civil war. Tho only practica?
ble way of restoring good goverumeutin
tho South is by thwarting the too success?
ful nttemps of tho radicals to stir up
jealousies aud animosities between the
two races. Their interests aro really
idoutical, and if tho conflict which hus

and carpet-bnggers were healed, tho best
citizens of both races, even in a State
like South Carolina, where tho negroes
aro a majority, could control the govern?

practical solution is to recognize uegro

A RBMAKKAUL-E SYNAGOGUE.-The Is?
raelites of Turin nrc building a new place
of worship, which, according to an ac?
count in the Puris 1'emps, is a very ex?
"Tho most remarkable of all structures
at Turin is thc synagogue of the Israel?
ites. It is likely the fiueit and riebest
synagogue in the world, and at the samo
time tho most remarkable monument of
Turin. Upon a small square bill, with '
adiipted stairs, stands a Greek temple in
white and pink. Above, a little back?
wards, is a kind cf second temple. Tho
wholo is traversed l>3* galleries, adorned
with small pillars and thousands ol'
splendid embellishments. White and
reddish colors predominate. It is Greek
and Moorish-it isRomauic and Gothic;
thero is a blending of all styles, without
overstraining and without bad taste. !
But -what makes this structure some?
time bizarre and unexpected is a mas?
sive tower, with pierced walls arisiug
above this ornamented, beautiful con?
struction, reminding of Asia and Egypt,
of Thebes and Nineveh. Surely the
architect of this building was gifted by
imagination. Ile was an ablo interpre?
ter of tho Hebrew dream of tho temple
to bc erected ut tho brink of a strange
river. Never since the great destruction
has Israel possessed a more magnificent
edifice iu which tho hymns of David re?
sounded. This building is entirely fit
for tho talented Italian Jews, who are a

SMAIIII INDUSTRIES.-The resources of
tho Southern States ore almost innume?
rable. There are a great many ways of
earning un honest penny, which .have
never outered into tho heads of our peo?
ple, for the simplo reason that wo have
always lived under tho delusion that
there was no money in anything but
cotton. Under the old regime, this was
well enough; but wo may as well wake
up to tho truth at oucc-this is no longer
a planting couutry-wo must direct our
attention to other resources, or come to
grief. The sooner wo begin to realize
tho foot and act upon it, tho better. It
is trno that it is very difficult, with a
spnrso population, to introduce reform,
but onco begun, good may come of it.
Dr. Porcher has pointed out, in his
admirable work on tho resources of our

tant features. We have roots, herbs,

medicinal properties. We lmvo fruits
