Atpeauance of Toulouse After the
Inundation-?A Town of Heins.?A Ton
louse (June 23) telegram to the London
Nothing can present a greater contrast
than the North and South sides of the
river ntToulouse?the one with its usual
aspect undisturbed, and its inhabitants
pursuing their ordinary vocations; the
other, like a place which has been bom?
barded. The Faubourg St. Cyprien is,
in fact, a town of itself, and is to the
upper part of Toulouse what tho Surrey
side of tho Thames is to the Middlesex
shore. The quarter is densely peopled,
or rather had 25,000 inhabitants, most of
them of the working classes, though out?
side the town walls are villas and cottages
belonging to wealthier people. Through
the (pmrter run avenues of trees, and
around it are fields of corn and market
gardens; in short, under ordinary cir?
cumstances, it must be a pleasant enough
place to live in.
To describe what St. Cyprien is now is
almost impossible. It is a town of ruins.
The Garonno is now running in its na?
tural bed, but all over tho inundated
quarter are pools of water and rank river
mud; trees aro uprooted, gardens arc
mero swamps, and streets half dried
water courses, with here and there great
cracks and yawning gaps. In some
places the houses are heaps of rubbish,
in others tho walls aro left standing,
with pictures or articles of attire hang?
ing on them. In one street through
which I passed onlv threo houses were
standing, and this is probably the case
in a dozen other thoroughfares. Every?
where gangs of soldiers were at work de?
molishing walls, collecting furniture, and
making tho roads pnssable, while the
owners of tho ruins wore, some helping
with a sort of resolute fury, others sit?
ting on beds or mattresses gazing vaguely
at the rubbish which represented their
homes. Some of tho more energetic
families were pic-nicking and coolcing
their middny meals in the desolate gar?
dens, the women bright, if not cheerful,
the children playing nbout as if nothing
had happened. The despondent were
just the contrary, the women sitting with
their faces buried in their hands, and
the boj-s and girls lying huddled toge?
ther among tho broken beams and heaps
of plaster. Tho road-sides were lined
with all kinds of articles, from four-post
bed-steads down to blankets nnd bon?
nets, and in several places the small
shop-keepers weTC drying, or rather at?
tempting to dry, thoir stock in trade in
the sun. Outside tho barriers the scene
is the sonic, with the addition of large
swamps, which were once vineyards and
corn-fields, and of little piles of gaily
painted hoards, once forming portions of
Marshal MacMahon, Gen. de Cissey
and M: Buffet, with their suites, spent all
Sunday afternoon in visiting the quarters
of the St. Cyprien and St. Michel, where
they talked freely with tho sufferers. I
hear the Marshal said it would be better
to burn nil the ruins of St. Cyprien, for
the odor from the refuse, and also from
the many undiscovered dead bodies, is
even now scarcely tolerable. The Mar
shnl said, moreover, that he had no idea
of the destruction, and would do every?
thing in his power to alleviate the dis?
tress. He afterward visited the Hospital
St. Jucrpies, tho military hospital, and
the tobacco manufactory. Everywhere
he was enthusiastically cheered, with
cries of " Vive Macyftthon!" He especially
complimented the Baronne de Sandrans,
wife of tho Prefect, the Comtesse de
Fenelon, and other ladies for their exer?
tions, and publicly thanked Souir Polio
grin for her labors. At half-past 0 yes?
terday morning, tho Marshal attended
mnss, and immediately after left for
Fenouillet, where only one house and
the church are left standing. On his re?
turn here he distributed decorations to
Gen. du Bessol and other officers and
privates. The way in which the soldiers
have worked and are working is the
theme of general admiration. To-day, a
large body of engineers is expected. In
the evening, there was a reception at the
Perfectuic, anel at 0 this morning, the
Marshal and his companions left for
Turbos in carriages, the railway commu?
nication being interrupted.
At Muret, in the Haute Garonne, tho
Suspension Bridge has been destsoyed,
and many houses wrockeel. itoeiues and
Pinsaguel, two villages near, are. masses
of ruins. In the Ariege, at St. Li/.icr,
three parts of the town have been
Hooded. At Moulis, in the Tarn ami
Gnronne, the church has fallen. At
Golfech, only four houses anil the church
arc standing. At Lomagisterc, many
houses have fallen and tho bridge has
been carried away. In the Haute
Pyrenees, at Tarbos and other places on
the Adour, houses have fallen and all
the crops aro destroyed At Sarginnot,
all tho bouses were inundated, several
fields anel tho bridgo demolished. At
Pau. according to the latest intelligence,
the railway communication is cut off.
Toulouse is full of people, anxious to
learn tho fate of their relatives and'pro?
perty. Tho railway service to Perigneux
is wholly insufficient, and tho company,
although this is the only line open, run
no extra trains.

The symptoms of Liver Complaint'nro
uneasiness ami pain in the- side. Some?
times the pain is in the shonhler, and is
mistaken for rheumatism. The stomach
iis affected with loss of appetite and sick
Jness, bowels in general costive, and
sometimes alternating with lax. The
head is troubled with pain, and dull,
heavy sensation, considerable loss of
memory, accompanied with painful sen?
sation of having left undone something
which ought to have been done. Often
complaining of weakness, debility and
low spirits. Sometimes many of the
I above symptoms attend the disease, and
at other times, very few of them ; but the
Liver is generally the organ most in?
SIMMONS' LIVER REGULATOR!
For all Diseases of tlie Liver, Stomnch and Spleen !
IT is evidently a Family Medicine, and by being kept ready for im?
mediate resort, will save many an hour of suffering, and many a
dollar in time and doctors' bills.
After forty years' trial, it is still receiving the most unqualified testi?
monials of its virtues from persons of the highest character and re?
sponsibility. Eminent physicians commend it as the most
? for Constipation, Headache, Pain in the Shoulders, Dizziness, Sour
Stomach, bad taste in the Mouth, Dilious Attacks, Palpitation of tho
Heart, Pain in tho region of tho Kidneys, Despondently, Gloom and
forebodings of evil; all of which are tho ottspring of a diseased Liver.
If you feel Dull, Drowsy, Debilitated, kave frequent headache.
Mouth tastes badly, poor Appetite and Tongv.e Coated, yon are suffer?
ing from Torpid Liver, or "Biliousness," and nothing will cure you so
speedily and permanently.
The Liver, the largest organ in the body, is generally the seat of the
disease, and if not Beguluted in time, great suffering, wretchedness
and DEATH will ensue.
Armed with this ANTIDOTE, all climates and changes of water and
food may bo faced without fear. As a remedv in MALAB10US
