Wo .i ties lay Horning* January 4,1871.
It is possible that the loug threatened
bombardment of Paria has commenced,
altboogh thus far the rain of shot and
olioll has only fallen upon an isolated
fort, removed several miles from the
heart of the capital. It is rumored,
however, that on the 1st of January the
fire upon the defences was to bo opened
along the whole line, and from the con?
tinued and patient preparations the be?
siegers have been making for months
past, there is little doubt but that they
wiii soon be able to hurl their missiles
into the most populous quarters of the
doomed city. The defence of the capi?
tal has beeu snob as to earn for its be?
leaguered inhabitants the admiration of
brave men of every country, bat with
tho overwhelming odds that Prussia
brings against them, we cannot under?
stand tbe wisdom of a defeuce which
must ultimately omi iu Submission, and
especially can^wo ^not perceive tho good
policy of sacrificing so magnificent a
city as Paris to'certain destruction by an
alien enemy; who so far bas shown a dis?
position to save it from the terrors of a
bombardment.' 'If there were n single
chanco of relief, either from within or
without, Paris would be right in defend?
ing itself* to the last, but apparently
th ero ia no such chance. The last sortie,
gallantly conducted, terminated in dis?
astrous defeat, and the army of the
Loire, on whom the besieged mainly de
ponded for nuocor, has boen almost anni?
hilated. Continued resistance must,
therefore, appear a mere usoloss entail?
ment of suffering*iipou tho inhabitants,
au inexcusable destraction of noble
works of art, and a reckless risk of tho
lives of the brave garrison.
SENATORIAL ELECTIONS.-On thc 17th
of January fourteen States will elect
members of tho United States Senate.
Six States havo already elected, so that
there will bo twenty new members in the
Senate of the Forty-second Congress.
Of the fonrteeu Senators to bo elected,
according to a .st sterne ni iu the Philadel?
phia Press, the ouly two about whore
election there seems to be any certainty
aro Wilson, of Massachusetts, and
Thayer, of Nebraska. The election of
these gentlemen seems to bo concoded.
In Arkansas, Illiuois, Kans&s, Maine,
Michigan, and other States, there is con?
siderable of a contest. The Legislatures
of 'all the States above named are Re?
publican, and the only difficulty is as to
the choice'of the man. The Democrats
in the Senate will receive an aocession
to their ranks of six Senators. If Mis?
souri sends a Democrat, us it is expected
Hue will, in place of Drake, thc Demo?
crats will havo soveu out of the twenty
MT. CENTS.-The completion of tho
grent tunnel at Mt. Cenis, on thc road
from Ckamberry to Turin, is near at
hand. The working partios iu tho oppo?
site headings of the tunnel ure within
hearing distanco of each other. Greet?
ings and hurrahs were exchanged
through tho dividing wall of rock for the
first time at 4 15 Christmas afternoon.
Henceforth there are no Alps for tho
traveler, aud anything in the way of a
tunnel is proved possible. This tunnel
was commenced yours ago, at the very
flood-tide of the ex-Emperor's greatness.
He favored tho work, and it was pushed
forward with much greater rapidity and
zeal after the annexation of Savoy by
France, which gave her tho Northern
face of the mountain. Militarily, tho
Mt. Cenis tnncel is likely to have much
significance, and commercially it must
greatly facilitate trado and travel be?
tween Franco and Italy.
Tho New York Express gives General
Grant the following Christmas nuts to
crack: "The election of a State Senator,
in Philadelphia, last week, whereby the
Senate of Pennsylvania is made secure
for thc Democrats; the power to impeach
Governor Holden, of North Carolina, for
high crimes and misdemeanors against
tho peoplo of his State, and the credit of
his State, for corruption in ofiico; tho
defeat of Bullock, Bloilgett & Co., in
Georgia, and the election of a Legisla?
ture from two-thirds to throo-fourlb?
Domocrntic; tho successes in Goorgin
is almost overwhelmiug, and but for the
fraudulent negro votes, tho Federal ad?
ministration, led byBulUock & Co., would
havo hardly a corporal's guard loft."
BOSH.-The New York HeraUl bab ouo
of its sensational loaders on tho next
Presidency, tho point of which is, thal
as there is just now an anxious restless
ness iu the American mind, Govornmoul
ought to do something "bold, startling
and inviting to the popular imagination
or the popular mind will seek a vent ii
a political revolution," &c. Tho Herah
gots off politic?! revolutions enough ir
its weather cock way, without any ait
from General Grant-and yet thc "popa

Ells, W. T. Nelson, Oeorge C. Napier,
and a colored man named Bob Banks,
left here in three batteans on a duck
bunting excursion down tho Oomulgee
river. They had proceeded down the
stream to what is known as Bullard's,
near Barclay's plantation, when, on
yesterday afternoon, about 2 o'clock,
tho boat in which Mr. Honry N. Ells
and his servant, Bob Banks, were
seated, became capsized iu the tiver, by
running against a log flouting down the
stream. Mr. Ells oluug to his bout, but
Bob grasped the log and climbed upon
it. So soon as this occurred, the boat
in which Messrs. Connor, Nelson and
Napier wore scated, hurried to the
ussistuuee of Ells and the negro, and in
tho strugglo to get them ont of the
water, this boat was also capsized, and
the waler was so intensely cold that the
struggle was then for life ow the part of
eaoh individual, and as olinging to the
boats in such cold water was cor tain
death, each man, except tho negro,
struck out for tho banks. Messrs.
Nelson, Napier and Connor succeeded in
reaching the opposite bauk of tho river,
neur Barclay's 1 plantation, and after
wading through a canebrake and water
waist deep, and through the ice io the
swamp, they managed to lind their way
to Mr. Barclay's house, after suffering
most terribly from the cold. Mr. Ells
was drowned. The colored mau still

not swim, and was nearly frozen to
death, no hopes are entertained that he

ono of tim militia mudo a full confession
and statement of the case-oharging
Capt. Waiker and Iiis militia with tho
whole uffuir. Walker attempted to
escape, but was overhauled about twenty
miles from Union, as he was gcttiug on
n railroad train. He refused to give
himself up at first, but when told that
there was a warrant for his arrest, and
lie must go huck, he gave in. There is
intens.' excitement in Union, and on
Monday night, os wo learn from pas?
sengers, the town was fired in four
places; but no damage was done. A
prominent colored mun, named Bates,
who is now iu Columbia-with tho in?
tention, as he declares, of laying the
whole matter before the Governor-also
charges Wnlkor with the crime, and de?
clines, also, that he knows who fired the
first shot. If the nrms are to be used
for murdering unoffending whites, the
sooner the militia are deprived of them,
HOMICIDE IS EDOBFIEXID.-We are in?
formed that a difficulty occurred on Sun?
day last, in Edgefield, between Mr.
Churlos Hamilton and Capt. O. N. But?
ler, brother of kGen. M. C. Butler, in
which Butler was shot dead. The kill?
ing, it is said, wns done in self-defence.
Capt. Butler leaves a young wife.
