in order to draw tho sympathies of Eu?
rope- to herself? All these questions aro
asked and nobody seems eqnnl to tho
task ol answering them. Tho wholo
thing is in a mist. Germans and French?
men are, alike, '.obfuscated," and even
the sportsmen are at a loss whether to
be or not. Do, Mr. London Times,
throw a little mom light ou the question,
and relieve us suffering mortals on this
side of the big water!
But seriously, wo aro disposed to re?
gard tho proposed treaty as au admira?
ble piece of diplomacy, indeed wonderful,
and cannot seo how Bismarck mado up
his mind to reject it. It waa a godd
thing for Franco and a good thing for
PruBsia. Both gained aud neither lost
anything. Franco rectified her bound?
aries and Prussia hold on to her con?
quests, whioh woro always in danger of
being wrested from her. And thoy wore
in a position to preserve the integrity
of the treaty. True, oilier European
nations would have objected, perhaps
the strongest of them, but what could
they have done? Absolutely nothing but
raise a row and got a whipping, which
would have left them worse off instead
of better and tho treaty still in force.
France and Prussia, armed as they are,
would havo paralyzed all opposition.
The arrangement would have stopped
the terriblo war now brewing, saved a
half million lives aud many millions of
treasure, besides tho total loss of pres?
tige by one or tho other of tho bellige?
rents, should the war go on. Thoroforc,
we say thc treaty was a good thing, and
if it has been defeated, so much the
worse for Europe.

man, who was ouco the friend of Marc
"Ah, ma dear Bair, you know ze apho?

NAPOLEON FOILED.-Tho London
Times, of the 24th, argues from data
that the marvellous rapidity with whicli
the Prussians hud rallied, and thc
celerity of their concentrations upon
the Rhine at the critical points, have do
feated Napoleou's plans for tho conquesl
of the Rhino" Provinces and tho disinte?
gration of tho German States. It say:
that the plau upon which Napoleon pro
posed to wage tho conflict was by rapii
movements to hurl the various corp:
d'armee which h id concentrated at tin
camp of Chalous iuto Ceutral Germany
thus dividing the North and Soutl
German States through their very centre
The wonderful rapidity of the Prussian:
ia covering their exposed points, ha:
foiled this manoeuvre. Prussia now ha:
a powerful army arrayed upon tlx
Rhine, between Mnyenco and Gologue
with a powerful force occupying UK
Rhino fortress. She also has a stron|
force in Southern Germany to repe
assault upon that quarter.
BELGIUM.-The cable despatches hav
lately directed considerable attcutioi
towards Belgium, aud thc importauce a
the preservation of her neutrality iu th
cxistiug struggle between France nm
Prussia. The history ot' Belgium, as ai
independent State, dates from 18110, n
which time it was separated from th
Kingdom of the Netherlands. Englum
is one of the nations which has guaran
teed Belgium independence, and th
royal family of Belgium is couuectt
with that of Great Britain. Leopold
of Suxo-Ooburg, who accepted th
crown in 1831, holds the balance betwee
France and Germany, while his rob
tiouship to England, as widower of th
Princess Charlotte, was enough to ii
sure his independence of coutiucnti
intrigues, yet not to implicate him to
deeply with British politics. In lii'?
ho married tho Princess Louise, duughh
of Louis Philippo, hy whom ho ba
three children, the first of whom. Lei
poid, is now the King. The relatioi
ship of tho family with the Englb
court is peculiarly intimate, owing 1
the first marriage of tho late King wi I
Princess Charlotte, aud his rulatibushi
to Prince Albert und Victoria, of who
he is thu uncle, her mother, the Duche
of Kout, being his sister. We month
these facts as explanatory of the lutero
which is felt in England that Belgiui
which was ouco appropriated by tl
French republic and absorbed by tl
first empire, shall bc kept intact fro
The present sovereign nf Belgium
highly spoken of by fhe liberal press
England. So mild and equal has bo
the sway of the Government, that if ev
there was a party there desirous of n
.Sorption iu a large State, it is believed
havo long si nco ceased to exist. Ev
edncuted Frenchmen aro accustomed
look upon Belgium, not only as a rein
in time of trouble, but as a model
constitut ional aud municipal govornmc
of true liberty and equality, of udmiu
trativo probity, of honor, good faith a
simpla diguity in the sovereigns, of m
istcrial capacity and popular good sen
in short, as an example and eneourn]
meut to all its neighbors. Conscien
thought, opinion, whether expressed
writing or embodied in associations, hi
enjoyed absolute immunity within til
own domain. In a country where I
groat majority aro Roman Catholics,

twelve yenra, and in a lato election cleri?
cals aud ultra liberals wero found Bide by

and freedom, for its prosperous mer

Jules Trochu is to-day undeniably th?
best soldier of Franco. Ho is now fifty

tho Crimean war ho was made chief c

moral considerations than by those

say at once that wo care very little abo
tho balance of power, which, within t

disappeared from tho preamble to t
mutiny act. A war between Franco a
Prussia would bc a war for the left bal
of tho Rhiue, aud would ho doubt

debatable land was fully decided. T
military result of such' a war wot

ing and reproductivo properties. Consequent?
ly, in Bummer, the tlesh loses in some degree,
its firiuucs8, tho muscles lack their usual
elasticity and vigor, and tho weight of tho
boily diminishes. Thone aro clear indications
that tho ordinary supply of tho lifo-eustainiug
principle afforded by thc food wo eat, ia not
sufficient to meet tho requirements of tho
system under a high tomperaturo. There ia
aunt her renton for thia, hcHides tho direct in- ?
lluunce uf tito heat, viz: tho IOSB of appotito |
und Ibo weakening of the digoutivo powers
which it occasiouB. Under these circum-1
Btaucos, a wholcBomo invigorant is evidently
needed, and tho best and safest is HOSTET
TICK'S STOMACH BITTERS. This admirablo
vegetable tonic and alterativo, acts favorably
upon tho system in several ways. It increases
tho ai petite and facilitates digestion, thereby
inclining tho stomach to rcceivo and enabling
it to assimilate a duo amount of nourishment.
It also tones tho relaxed secretive organs and
I tho bowels. Under its operation, thoprocota
I of emaciation, occasioned by tho drain through
the pores, is arrested, tho whole frame re?
freshed and invigorated, and thc spirits exhi
hunted. The dyspeptic, tho bilious, tho

THE ?PAIN KILLER."-Tho foreign
and domestic domand for Perry Davin tc SOU'B
great medicine-tho Pain Killer-was never
before so largo ae it has been of Into; ami wo
think tho limo has arrived when tho declara?
tion may bo made, without the possibility of
refutation, that the city of Providence, in tho
State of Rhode leland, of the United Staten nt
America, has furnished tho entire habitable
globe with a medicine, which, iu point of uni?
versality of demand, extent ol MBcfulnesH, I
completo efficiency for all tho purposes for
which it is designed and wide spread, endur?
ing popularity, baa never been equaled by any
medicine in Europe or America.
The universality nf the demand for the Pain
Killer, ia a novolj interesting, and surprising
feature in tho history ot thia medicine. Ita
"fame baa gono ont," into every quarter of
thu habitable globe. Tho Pain Killer is now
regularly Bold in largo and steadily increasing
quantities, not only to general agenta in every
State and Torritorv of tho Union, and evory
Province of* British America, but to Buenos
Ayres, Brazil, Uraguay, Peru, Chili and other
South Arnot ican States, to tho Sandwich Is?
lands, to Cuba and other West India Islands;
to England and Continental Europe; to Mo?
zambique, Madagascar, Zanzibar and other I
Atricau lands; to Australia and Calcutta, '
Rangoon und other places in India, lt lias 1
also been scut to China, and wo doubt ir there
is any foreign port or any inland city in Africa I
or Asia, which is frequented by American and |
European missionaries, travelers or traders,
into which tho Pain Killer has not been intro?
duced and boon sought after.
The extent of its usefulness ia another great I
feature of this remarkable medicine. It is
not only tho best thing ever known, aa every- !
body will confesa, for bruises, cuts, burns,
etc., but for dysentery or cholera, or any sort
of bowel complaint it ia a remedy unsurpassed
for efficiency and rapidity of action. . In tho
great cities of British India, and in tho West
India Islands and other hot climates it baa*
become thc standard medicine for all auch com?
plaints, as well as for dyspepsia, liver com?
plaints and other kindred disorders. For]
coughs and colds, canker, asthma and rheu- '
miltie difficulties, it has been proved by tho
most abundant and convincing trials and
testimony, to he an invaluable medicino. The
proprietors are in possession of lettcra from

the cures effected and the satisfactory results 1
