the arrival of the train. On

enter, and quite a scuffle ensued, in which'
Mr. IL getting the best, succeeded m open
ing the door, and held it open till his wife

threatening gestures, announcing his
purpose to usauU ,Mr. Harad, but
receiving no encouragement from the whit
ssengers present, and seeing that Harad
would not hcare worth a cent, aud, into the
bargain, a big, ugly-looking negro standing
by burning with indignation at his blunter

KING WILLIAM'S ANXOCXCEXEXT OF
DEFEAT OF THE FKEKCH.
London, August 20 The following are the
exact words of the official despatch of' 'King
William, dated Bousonville, Thursday
"We have defeated the French under
Marshal Bazaine, after a battle which lasted
ten hours. There were 40,000 killed and
wounded, and the garrison taken prisoners
I commanded. The defeat of the French is
complete. (Signed) Wouam."
THE YICTOBY OF THE PRUSSIANS CONFIRMED
London-, August 20 All private despatch
es to bankers agree precisely in their terms
regarding the victory of the Prussians, and
the despatch from King William. The
French army were west of Metz, and their
position a very strong one. His command,
after a combat of about nine hours, totally
defeated the French and intercepted their
communication with Paris and with the
forces at Met a ' " ' t
Poxt-A-Mochsos, August 19. rut Berlin.
August 20-7-Yesterday the Prussians won a
brilliant victory, near G ravel lette. The
French were expelled from every position
they held, and were thrown back upon Metz,
and conhned to a narrow territory aronnd
that fortification. They are completely cut
off from Paris. The Twelfth Pruasjari Army
Corps, holds the railway from Metz to Thi
onville. The Prussian losses are heavy.
Paris, August 20 The utmost consterna
tion prevailed in this city JIiis evening when
the first intelligence of the defeat and en
trapment of Bazaine' s army was made
known. The scene tliat followed beggars de
scription. Immense crowds surrounded the
Chambers with loud expresions of anger.
iiopeiui statements ot the .Ministers tnat the
concentration of French armies had been ef
fected, despatches read purporting to have
been from Bazaine, were openly
charged to have been concocted in
Paris. Reports were circulated
of the intended abdication of Napoleon in
favor of Iiis son, with the Empress as RegenU,
Revolutionary demonstrations are being made
in Boulevard-MonUnartre. All sorts
of rumors are flying. One asserts a
change in the Ministry, and accession of M.
Thiers and other Orleanists to power. An
other is to the eflect that the Emperor has
applied to Austria and Italy for succor. The
active preparations of Trochu are effective.
The garrison of the Capital will number
18,000 men. ,
London, August 20 At Berlin to-day the
publication of the King's despatch announc
ing the defeat of Bazaine, created tremend
ous enthusiasm. The whole population were
in the streets; nags everywhere: churches
thrown open, and thanksgiving services were
held. Thousands of citizens assembled out
side of the Royal Palace, congratulating the
iuecn with deafening cheers.

A biLENCK HAS FALLEN ON THE N.VMK OF
Iindon, August 20 The French War
Office forbids the publication of any war
despatches unless signed by Marshal
Bazaine. The prohibition extends even to
the Emiieror's despatches,
A Paris correspondent writes as follows:
"A silence has settled, on the name of Na
poleon, even more astounding than on the
Prussian victories. He is dead, civilly and
imperially. For a fortnight his name has
been unpronounccd in the Chamber and he
is as much disregarded as the Pope."
London, August 20 The bombrdment of
the city of Strasburg, from a point near Kehl,
began on Friday morning, and continued
till noon, when it was sucnded for twd
hours. The return fire was almost harmless.'

FROM THE HEADQUARTERS OF THE CROWN
-New York, August 20 A special 'cor
respondent writes from the headquarters of

The movement of troops is incessant, though

the Duke de Magenta caused the general

their furniture in carts. Somt farmers drove'

LATEST AS TO THE SITUATION OF TUB
iL FRENCH ARMY. ,
'New York, August 19 M. Gaillaurdet
telegraphs from Paris to the Courierda EtaU
Unit of this morning: "In an interview!
with M. Chevereux, Minister of the Interior,'
he complains that despatches which, by
special favor, I have been permitted to sendj
to New York have been transmitted back to
Prussia, to the detriment of our operations
He further assured me that the Chief of the
Berlin police had perfected arrangements foil
receiving, the moment they were published
despatches sent from France to Luxemburg,!
Belgium, Switzerland and America, which
despatches he immediately forwarded to the
Prussian headquarters. j
"These despatches have made the enemy
acquainted with the projected movements on
our part, and informed them in regard to
the strength of our forces at certain points.
It consequently follows tliat Bazaine feels
compelled to interdict the publishing of all
army news, except such as emanates from
his -headquarters. The Minister of the In
terior will forward such despatches, when
suitable. The Minister added that Bazaine
liad said he feared telegraphic despatches,
which made known his movements to the
eneinv, less than the demoralizing effect pro
duced upon the people bv the makintr known
to their families the names of the killed in
battles. Though our army has suffered se
verely, the concentration upon Chalons is bet
ing accomplished. If nothing unexpected
happens, our forces will be therein three
"There is very much confurion in the des
patches from the arniv. While advantages
are announced as having been gained at va
rious points, no mention is made of a decided
victory having been achieved over the enemy!
Manifestly Bazaine is attempting to stave off
a battle until reaching Chalons, where he
can be joined by reinforcements. I infer
from despatches that our forces are retreating
iii three columns; tliat as fast as one is aU
tacked, the others go to its assistance, and
having repulsed the enemy then move on
again. five tattles have been fought since
the 14th, and five times have we repulsed
the enemy. The advantages which we
gained over the foe at Gravallatte, Mars-la-Tour
and Dercourt recall the glories of the
French campaigns of 1814. The armies of
Frederick Charles and Yon Steinmetz have
been decimated, but reinforcements for them
have constantly arrived. McMahon, with
part of his advance guard, has arrived at
Vitry le Francoie. Two divisions have
been despatched to protect his return to
Clialons. We securely hold Strasburg,
Pfalzburg and Thionville. After organizing
the forces at Chalons, Gen. Trochu has been
appointed commander of the forces and for
tifications in and about Paris."

Gen. Trochu, La Taws, and others, visited
the fortifications to-day, after which they
held a long conference. t
The various manufacturies of arms
throughout France are working with extreme
diligence. They send daily to the Govern
ment large quantities of arms.
Two councels of Ministers were held e
tcrday at the Tuileries. Gen. Trochu "was
present on both occasions.
TROCHU, TO-DAY, PUBLISHES A LETTER
explaining how he desires to aid the people.
He says: "The idea of maintaining order by
lorce oi me uayon ana sworn in run,
which j-s so agitated and given
to crief. has me with horror am
disgust. The maintenance of order by as
cendancy of patriotism, freely expressed by
the knowledge of the evident danger of the
country, fills me with hope and security. But
this problem is arduous, and I cannot solve
it-alone, but I can, with the aid of those hav
ing such sentiments. That is what I term
moral aid. The moment may arrive, when
malefactors, seeing us defending the city, will
seek to pillage; those, the honest men must
seize. The error of all governments I have
ever known, is to consider force the ultimate
power. The only decisive power in the
moment of danger, is moral force."

The deliberations of this Committee seem
to have resulted favorably to the anti-Clarke
movement Increased representation was
secured a measure notoriously of anti-Clarke
origin. The Clarke organs, since the meet;
ing of the committee, insist that thev were
desirous of an increase also, and that it was
a victory for them; but it sounds like the,
"Didn't we give him fits, though?" of the
husband who skulked oft" up stairs and left
his wife to whip the bear.
The congressional canvass seems to be the
most hotly contested, and is turning into a
Clarke and anti-Clarke fight. It will prob
ably give the convention more trouble than
all the other offices combined. The foes,
stimulated by interest on the one side and
principle on the other, with considerable
pride on both, struggling dcsierately for the
mastery. Both hac brains enough for a
skilled battle, pluck enough for a hard one,
and, we doubt not, enough money for a long

the end. The straws seem at present to in
dicate that the wind blows strongest from the
anti-Clarke imarter, and that principle will
prevail over interest.

OCR advices from Southern Kansas tell us
that the settlers on the Osage lands are fol
lowing the lead of their friends on the
Keutral lands, and are generally running
against Sidney Clarke and his corrupt crew
of dead-beats and blood suckers. They know
what his fifty-thousand-dolLir steal for the re
moval of the Osage Indians means. They
are informed that already his emissaries have
gone among the Osage Indians to try and
persuade them not to consent to a removal,
so that the railroad corporations to whom
Clarke has already sold himself, can gobble
up the lands. This "consent of the Osages"

a cfever dodge of the cunning trickster. The
settlers on the Neutral binds have repudiated
the pseudo "statesman," and so will the set

from the hall as soon as he was through with

We oppose him again, and propose to
give our reasons for doing so briefly. We
are not actuated by personal hatred or per
sonal motives of anv kind. We have no
private ends to further and no griefs to

We oppose him because he has done com
paratively nothing for the lienefit of his con
stituents. While he has made loud profes
sions of friendship for the settlers, he has
really accomplished nothing in their behalf,
and 'close examination of his record will
show that he has supported many of the most
infamous Bchdiaai to give the public domain
to monopolists and siiecuUtors. Although
the agitation of the Jfeutral land question
has been brought before Congress for several
terms, and although the settlers have been
at the expense of keeping IoblyLts at Wash
ington, Clarke has never done anything for
them but promi"c. He has done nothing of
a practical nature for them. He has done
no) ing for the settlers on the Sac and Fox
s .1 .vaw Reserves. He has done nothing
fo- ' e settlers on the Black Bob binds in
Johnson county, except to attempt to steal
their valuable homes for a ring composed ot
Blunt, Irwin, Taylor & Co. Even the bill
for the opening of the Osage Reserve, for
which so much credit Is claimed for him by
hi- strikers, is shorn of benefits to the set

amounting to $500,000, Congress would pay
them. It lias not done so, and no reason
can lie assigned but the inefficiency of our
Congressman. He does not even ofler a
reasonable excuse for his failure to get justice
done to a large number of his constituents in
this matter. Similar claims to the amount
of millions of dollars hare been paid to
He has done nothing to secure the iy

We arc opposed him becaase he tries to
build himself up by drawing around him a
set of men who are actuated Try no other mo
tive than office-seek insr. No man can get an
office from Clarke unless he is willing to bow
the knee to him, and become a member .of
his ring. Of course there are a few excep

understood as saying that everybody that
Riinnorts him is an office-seeker. But his
policy is and has been to strengthen himself
by giving otnceoniy to tnosc wno win sin

posed to any man for office who is not wil

through its columns, lie it known, that a real
live, go-ahead town, full of vim and the ele
ments of prosperity, is springing up as if by
magic in the northwest corner of Neosho
county, at the crossing of the Missouri, Kan
sas &. Texas, and the-Leavenworth, Lawrence
A Galveston railroads. The town rite is one
of nnsurnaaaW beautv. and surrounded bv a
scope of country not surpassed for beauty, for
stock, or for agricultural purposes, by any in
this portion of the State. A panorama of
inspiring beauty is spread out on the east of
the town, which every Kansas may look;
upon with pride. The river, with a bewil
dering diversity of grand and beautiful trees,.
the large and fertile valley, with its rustlingi
fields of corn, and the numerous herds of,
fat and sleek cattle grazing upon the bounti-j
ful supply of luxuriant grass, form a scene)
of great beauty and interest. On the west,
gentle rolling prairie, as smooth as the ocean
billows, ascend one swell after another until
Inst in the dim distance. 'The town is boun-j
tifoilv supplied with timber. Villaec Creek is
on and a half miles to the north. Turkey,
Creek, four miles to the south, and the,
Neosho River one and a half miles to the,
east, all afford an abundant supply of good
limner, ine furronixung country i an

thickly settled for a comparatively newi

Allen, on the north, would be a good county,
if she had her debts 'paid. Neosho County
does not owe a dollar, therefore we do not'

place, and no doubt they have cause. Thei

who by the way, is Railroad agent, Express-,
agent, Justice oi tne rcace ami a penecx ge
tleman, is erecting an elegant residence, on.
the mt commanding point of ground in!
town, where lie expects to pass the remainder!
of bis days. It Is ten week since the town
site was surveyed, the grass is not all worn
off from the'princial streets yet. One hnni
drcd and fifty buildings, and a population of
five hundred, is about the size of the youngj
fiant now, and "nwanlisslill the watchword.
t is the general remark of all strrngers who
visit our town, that a better class of building'
are being erected here, than the most of new;
towns are favored with. The different
branches of trade are very ably represented.
A new hotel is almost a necessity. The
Tilton House w entirely inadequate to the;
business. The urbane and courteous land-j
lords, Austin & Wilson, do,all that circum
stances, will admit of, to accomodate the travJ
elling public. , A new hotel will be completed
in a few weeks; while another in under eon-j
temptation. Cal's Restaurant is the Del
monico-of Kew Chicago; no pains is spared;
by the courteous epicurean to tickle the pal
ate of all who favor him with a call. I
On the first day of September, we expect
to be able to' blow our horn through the col-t
umns of a New 'Chicago paper. Mri

Chicago on the lUtn.
Real estate ia sold at very low futures id
town, while farms in the vicinity of the townj
are held at very high figures. Town lots
range from $2o to $200 a piece; farming
lands, from $20 to $75 per acre.
A rumor in affloat in town to-day, that the
sBTVcrmVwirtT of the Fort Scott A Sedalia
Railroad, is at Big Creek, 18 miles east of
here. If New Chicago gets the Fort Scott A
Sedalia Railroad, and her prospects for it art
verr flattering, all doubt as to whether it will
make a city, is at an end, as it would then
have three of the principal railroad of the
State concentrating at this point. I
