COLUMBIA, S. C.
Saturday Morning, August 6,1870.
Tho to wu of Saarbr?cken, rf hieb WOB
taken on Tuesday by the Fronoh, after
an engagement, a? is reported, of two
hours' duration, is situated on tho Saar
Biver, forty miles South-South-east of
Tr?ves, ton miles South of Suarlouis,
and about forty miles East of Metz. Tho
town takes its name from tho Saar Biver
and "brueoken," the German word for
"bridges." It is often given in tho sinu
Iar, Saorbraok, or Saarbridge, from tho
stone bridge over the river, connecting
the town with its suburb St. Johann. It
has a population of between eight and
ten thousand, was founded in the tenth
oentury, and has passed through many
vicissitudes incident to war. It is dis?
tinct from Saarburg, which is thirty
miles North-North-east of Saarbr?cken.
Saarlouis, tho soeno of the fight referred
to in this morning's despatches, is an?
other town of Rhenish-Prussia, somo ton
miles North-east of Saarbrucken. The
Prussian line in the.Saar Valley ran pa?
rallel to the French boundary, and in
oluded Saarlouis, Merzig, Soarburg and
Saarbr?cken, and apparently tho Prus?
sian objective point was Metz. But iu
?proportion of the French, who at first
. contented themselves with massing at
their two great centres- Metz and Stras
?bourg, showed ? disposition to advance,
'?the Prussians manifested symptoms of
retiring upon tho great natural boundary
of the Rhine, backed by the fortresses of
Coblentz, Mayence and Mannheim. Ac?
cording to correspondence of American
newspapers, the importance of tho cap?
ture of Saarbr?cken will greatly depend
upon the stand which Prussia proposes
to make on this side of thc Rhine. With
Metz as a baso of operations, tho French
have now extended their front to a posi?
tion which commands thc upper ex?
tremity of the Valley of the Saar, and
renders the entire command of eis-Rben
ish-Prussia dependent upon thc posses?
sion of Tr?ves and Saarlouis. The latter
fortress is about seven miles lower down
the valley of tho Saar, while Tr?ves is at
a distance of forty miles, whero that
stream joius tho Moselle. Thus tho
frontier haB been crossed, and thc first
successes of the campaign have boen
achieved by French arms on- German
The variety of accounts of the engage?
ments are grimly amusing. Official re?
ports from Berlin and Paris disparaging
and applauding the battles. Tho dis?
tressing feature of the Saarbr?cken
affair, was tho burning of half thc town
by thc French artillery. Thc deadly
mitrailleuse, a now weapon for wholesale
slaughter, w.as used for the first time iu
the engagement, and, it is said, with de?
The following gi-aius of information
are given in tho despatches: Prussia bas
summoned a levy cn masse for coast de?
fence; King William has issued his
proclamation at. Mayence, assuming
tho commauderijhip-iu-chief of tho
armies. Negotiations are poudiug to
keep the ports of Hamburg and Bremen
open during the war, and the United
States as well as Great Britain is said to
be an activo promoter of this object.
An official journal in Pari3 avows that
the war is not against Germany, nor
against King William, but against Bis?
marck. On tho other haud.-it is said in
England, that in 186G Bismarck wished
to cedo the region about tho river Suar
to France, but King William and his
council refused. All the correspond?
ents, it is said, havo boen finally expelled
from both lines, which they richly do

A ?DII Story of tito Sea.
The followiug oatlino of the sad story
of a citizen of New Jersey appears much
liko tho romantic tales found in our sen?
sation weeklies; but the narrative is
nevertheless true, as tho distr&sed fami?
ly of the-ndveuturor, who still reside iu
Jersey City, can testify:
Twenty years ago, a gentleman in mo?
derate circumstances, living in Jersey
City, determined to try his luckin China.
Accordingly, he invested most of his
capital in goods .suited for that market
und embarked on board a ship bound for
Hong Kong, ria Liverpool. > His family,
consisting of his wife and seven children,
were left with sufficient means for their
maintenance until his return, which was
expected to be within four yeors. The
ship'on board which our Jerseyman was
a passenger, had a fine run to Liverpool,
where sho completed her lading, and
then started on a long voyage to China.
Onco only, did the family of '.?e Jersoy
man hear from him after leaving liver?
pool, and that was by a letter received
by a ship which spoke tho Jersey man's
craft, after rounding thc Capo of Good
Hope. Months passed by and no fur?
ther nows of tho ship. She never ar?
rived at Hong Kong, nud nearly a year
after her departure from Liverpool, her
captain returned to that port with the
sad tide of her foundering in mid-ocean,
and his own escape, with most of his
Crow and passengers, from a fearful
death.' The Jorsoymau was' not among
the saved. A dreadful storm, -which
continued many days; drove the ship far
out of her course to the Bouthward, and
finally, after losing all her spars, she
went down, giving her crew barely time
to.lower tho beats before the uoblo vessel
made her final plunge. Tho boats, con?
taining tho captain and must of his crew,
after tossing upon tho sea 'for several
days, finally reached a group of islands,
whore they remained six or seven months,
kindly treated by tho natives, until taken
off by a transient trader and carried to
Calcutta, whore they secured a passngo
to this city. But the boat in which wero
tho Jerseyman and five seamen, was
never heard of since tho first night after
leaving tho wreck.
Twenty years of sorrow, struggle and
Privation for tho Jersey family pass,
'he noble-hearted widow and mother
fought against tho ills of poverty, keep?
ing her children under her owu roof
tree, educating and fitting thom well to
fight tho battle of life, and had the hap?
piness of seeing them become bravo
men and good citizens, honorable
among tho most houorcd. Daring all
those long years of sorrow and toil, she
cluug to the hope that the husband of
her youth would return to her; bis mo
mory was kept fresh in her heurt, and
almost her ouly solace was tho recollec?
tion of the happy hours passed with
him iu their cottage homo, ond tho be?
lief that onco more sho would be folded
to his heart. Tweuty years rolled slowly
around; children Locarno men nud
women; and strange young faces were
seen around the hcarth-stoue. The suf?
fering wife's hair was turning whito,
and her trusting heart was well nigh
broken from its loug waiting, wheu, six
weeks ago, came a letter from thc wan?
derer, reciting his sad history. The
secoud morning after thc wreck, nothing
was to bo seen of the other boats. With
but a small stock of provisions, the Jer
sej'uian and his live companions, hoping
against hope, determined to shape their
course South of East, trusting to make
ouo of the many groups of lands known
to lie iu that direction. After ten days
toil, during which two of the seamen
died from privations, the party reached
a small islaud, when they wero imme?
diately seized by the natives and con?
demned to a life of slavery. Their
captors were cannibals, and long sought
to iuduco the whito men to join them in
their horrible orgies; but buding both
threats and eutreatics unavailing, they
finally desisted, and allowed their white
slaves to oat such food as they them?
selves chose. One after another of his
white compauions died, until thc Jersey
mau was left ulouo to his lifo of servi?
tude among the savages, nud so closely
was ho watched, that although many
ships touched at tho island, be was
unable to communicate with them. At
length, n schooner from Australia
dropped anchor during anight in March
last, in a covo near tho hut occupied by
the Jerseymar. and being tho first to
discover ber, ho seized a cauoo and
paddled off to her, before any of the
natives were astir. So long had be been
nmong tho savnges, that he had lost
nearly every recollection of his origin,
find had forgotten his nativo language.
After gainiug tho deck of tho schooner,
ho was for some timo unoblo to articu?
late a word, nud only ofter a copious
flood of tears had relievod him, waa the
strong man ablo to utter tho simple
word "homo, ' Finally, after many
sflbrts, ho made tho captain understand
bis story, which so affected the noble
licartcd sailor, that he at onco weighed
inchor and sailed for Melbourne, where
lio arrived after a short passage. Hore
tho Jerseyman was kindly cared for by
tho authorities, but being too unwell to
take passage by tho first steamer to
Flonoliilu and San Francisco, he sent the
letter containing tho joyful tidings of bia
safety. Last week, a letter, iu a mourn
ng euvclopo, from Melbourne, was ro
joived by tho Jcrseyman's family. It
?.as a city official, and contained tho sad
tidiugs of thc wanderer's death. After
tweuty years of hardship and slavory,
just as ho was to embark for his long
?oveted home, ho was called to take a
longer, moro dreaded journey, and in
that far-off land, aud nuiong strangers,
but among Christians, his spirit took its
dight.-New York Herald.

THE SITUATION IN EUHOPB.-It becomes
clearer with every fresh indication of
public opinion among Germans, both at
home and abroad, that toe hostility of
France to Prussia can scarcely foil to ac?
complish what it -was especially designed
to prevent-the closer tinion of the vari?
ous sections of Germany. In fixing the
quarrel upon Prussia, the French Go?
vernment have only mode that power
more emphatically than ever the guaran?
tee of German anion, prosperity and in?
dependence, and in prefacing it with
what has been interpreted as a studious
insult to King William, they have caused
tho absolutist character of that monarch
to be temporarily forgotten in his posi?
tion as head and representative of the
nation. Hence, the ebullition from the
Inn to tho Elbe of a fervid and deep
seated enthusiasm, in which the hostili?
ties of 18GG, and the party struggles that
followed them, aro lost sight of. Thorn
is now ono universal desire to vindicate
tho common honor of a people iu whom
scctioual divisions cannot extinguish the
idea of kindred, and in whom fears of
Prussia are extinguished by their confi?
dence iu her ability to faco what they
accept as a common danger. Wo give
elsewhere tho full text of the King of
Prussia's late speech at tho oponiug of
tho Parliament of tho Confederation. It
is au oration well calculated to mako an
impression on the earnest and intelligent
nation to whoso representatives it was
addressed. There is a notable absence
of exaggerated confidence about its an?
ticipations, and it exhibits au obvions
desire to impress the full magnitude of
the struggle then oponiug ou the minds
of the people. The snmo desire is still
moro clearly expressed in the speech re?
ported to have been delivered by tho
King to tho Town Councillors of Be.rliu.
Such phrases as "heavy srerifiecs will be
demanded by my people," "wc shall not
get off so cheaply this time," show a
characteristic avoidance of braggadocio,
and a quiet intensity of purpose which,
to say the least of it, form a decorous in?
troduction to a struggle so momentous.
lu proportion as tho Gormans become
more closely united in the common cause,
tho Latin races appear to be developing
tho natural sympathy which springs both
from their origiu aud territorial position.
lu 8pitoof tho peculiar relatiou sustained
by Spain with reference to the contend?
ing powers, it is obvious that Frauco is
sparing no effort to detach her from
Prussia, and to conciliate tho popu?
lar fooliug which late reflections on the
Cortes had disturbed. Ou the other
hand, tho rapid termination of the deli?
cate uegotiations touching the ?vacua?
tion of Rome, and tho startling prompti?
tude with which France has fulfilled her
part of the bargain, makes it obvious
that all minor interests aud traditions
aro eclipsed by the present struggle, and
that tho empire is equally desirous of
moral support as of an activo alliance.
What obligations the Italian Government
have incurred does not as yet clearly ap?
pear. It is probable that their stipula?
tion ns to the peace of Rome, together
with the independence of the Holy See,
will bo found somewhat difficult to exe?
cute. The Italian Kingdom is itself the
creation of popular seutimcut, aud the
absolute possession of tli3 capital is too
deeply seated a passion of the uational
miud to render its repression by nuy
means easy, oven should it bo considered
desirable.-JVeic 1 vrfc Times.

Of course, tho mission is destined ti

tho rub. Will not this mission provi
too successful? Will not the candidate;
for regeneration swell to such alarming
proportions, as will bankrupt botl
larders and hearts? Will not the little
mischievous blind god slip in and plaj

A DEAUTI?TL THOUGHT.-It may bc truth?
fully bawl that the greatest of all blessings is
health, for without it the joys vouehaafed are
turned to sorrows. To all health is essential
for lifu's enjoyment and pursuits, to the
young and old, to the rich amt poor. Are you
in search ol' wealth? Health is necose?ry.
Do you desire oflioo and worldly honors';"
Of what avail would these bo without health?
The beauties of spring, the song of birds, the
deep blue sky, the rolling ocoau, all have a
poetic fascination which charms only the
healthy in mind and body; but to the sick
what are these but mockeries. Thc body dis
eased, tho mind sickly o'er with tho saddest
of thoughts. Oh! that I may live to appre?
ciate tho blessings of health. This rich boon
is within tho reach of all. Tho remedy at
hand in HKINITSH'S QUEEN'S DEWOUT, tho
health panacea. Now is the time to trv it.
