THE BATTLE OF SADOWA.
Kvery thin;; tbut rtaches u? conDrmj Ihu be

I'hey held their position with obstinacy: tln-v !

fought with a Fpirit woithy . of better ieadeis
and a bulter cuusi. Hut even before the greut
buttle, doubt and diHlrust must haveluvudod
every part or that immense host. They knew
what theyhod been prrmhed, and thai It had
not been lullilhd. They knew that they were
lo have gone locek tho enemy on his owr.
territory ,and they saw him actually established
their own. .
Tbe system of concealment and mvsterv.
which made the position of il.q army und Hie

Knot oi emeers, could not prevent thoso who
used their pyc, 'and cars, and judgment, Irom

the enemy. Jiut the bntlleof Hadowa was
a'on etepby slip, arid the Prussians hdvaneed
to victory over llioujandu of tho slain. Il i
remarknblo that tho lowcs of tho Am'.rians are
plactd higher by laose who are among them
than by tho conquetors. The gaps in the
uimy ol Bencdck are only fully discerned by
thoso who knew it beforo it met the enemy.
Our correspondent, writing three days aflcr
the battle, when the confusion was beginning
lo nliiltj, when the men were finding their
way bach, to their rrglmciils,' end regiments,
cr what was left of them, were again betg
united in'o brigsdes and divisions, gives the
loe ol tho beaten army as probably more than
two flfihi of its wholu number. "It may be
trne," he rnys, "tbut eighty thousand men
were killed, wounded, taken prisoners, ot
drowned, and that one liondred and f.fty goua
were Ukr-n, abandoned, or throws Into the
river on the retrrat." Adding lo these lo"ses
the number of men who must have thrown
away their arms in the retreat, we mint doubt
whether ono bumtrcd thousand effectivo men
were to be found in tho army ol tho North
three days after the buttle.
The retreat was. indeed, melancholy and
disastrous. As at I-cipsic, we hear of pon
toons ludeti with hundreds swpt down the
river and overturned with their living cat'
goes (,f artillery and horsemen crashing
(! wii upon nod through tho struggling infun
i.y, jamming them in tho nmrow roads and
huii ling teem over the bridges iuto the waters.
In short, all that was mod horrible iu war
fare wus concentrated into this coolest. A
long struggle, lustirg tho eatiro day, the mow
ing down of whole regiments by Ibe flro of the
enemy, the burning of villages, the horrible
incidents of a (light through nn inundaied
country, end, finally, tho long guflerings of the
disorganized march that tuccccded, form a
combination nl which tho imagination is
(hocked and saddened. ,., ....
Il is difficult to bring opcclf lo believe that
foeh horrors have hern enucted ia our own
t imc, and iu a region bo near and so fatnilliur.
Wo bud heard and nad ef r-uch fieldi of
slaughter, but they teemed to belong to nn
age and slate Of human oharacter which could
never bo revived Nine miles of slutightcr,
ending with Hie drowning of a'mass of terror
stricken fugitives, is an event which a few
years since tho wisest would have pronounced
impossible in the Kuropo of (o-duy.. .
Unlets the rourse of hostilities le flayed,
theie is reason to fear that b'udowa will not
be the lu.t, though it may remain tho most
deadly, cl tha A urn riun battle?. . I he F111.1

though bard'y probable, that the f ji tunes ol
war miijht change. 1
The FruEiiiiiis, ihcttfore, hate lost do limo

A Clerical Scandal Case in
Clergyman Alleged to be a Thief, Seducer
and Adulterer.
The I'cv. William D. Siegfried is a
Kentleninn who is not altogether unknown
to ti e public. Those especially who are
in the hnbii of perming the advertise
ments of patent nitdicine.1 auJ nostrums
of all sorts, have often ran across his
name nt (h foot of an eloquent Iribato to
the marvelous tTiency of sundry univer
sal curef lis. Ha has also contrired In
keep his name semi occasionally before
the pubiio as lie manager of Homa for
Wanderers, which was located until of
late in tha lower portion of the city, but
is now removed to some point up tV.e
De'eware. A few months ago, Mr Sieg
fried was official ing as the castor of u
small Lut euti.ely Tespectubls congrega
tion in the northern section of the city.
While thus engaged his mind became s.x-
cited over the wonderful turns in the
wheel of fortune .which 'occured to the
benefit of sundry speculators ia oil with
whom ho hnd some eccuaintnnce. UnJcr
the inspiring influence of petroleum ibo
gospel became exceedingly dry in com
parison, and his Ir.bors in the cause there
of exceedingly lukewarm. Finally he
resigned his ministerial charge under tho
professed plea that he Lad acquired such
snug little fortune that he no longer en
joyed sn easy conscience while serving
as a hireling pnest; and with the Avowed
determination of oCering his services to
some congregstion who, by reason of their
povetty, were unnble to tustuin becoming
ly a minister to their spintunl wante.
A lo the manner in which the Rev. Mr.
Biegfi ied has carried out this laudaL
and Ituly sposloho determination, an In
cident transpired yesterday afternoon ia
tho ofilce of Alderman Dougherty, throw
teg considerable light u,-on it. Mr. Sieg
fried was brought before the Alderman
on a wairint charging l.im with adultery
and the larceny of 68,000, umlor circum

shocking chnrnrUr. '
The piosecurjrix , in , tho case was
young woman with pleasing face.hut
possessed of few of tho accomplishments
of fashouable life. &ho was represented

Pomefoy, she had proceeded to Pittsburg
where fcbe mided for a lime with a brother-
in vn w. who was etewArd - of a vessel,
and therefore ab;ent from hi home for a
considerable portion of his lime. As she
wus passing along the street one evening
was accosted by a gentleman, 1 who
tapped her familjiaily upon the shoulder,"

She had inherited froi her mother, three
years before, the sum -ot fjS,000, and
these e?,000 were the rtBonan'.s, , , ,Mr.
Jones inferred from this rapid expend
turo that his traveling eompanioq was no

benevolently ofTt-red to take care of it for

declined to do, arguing speciously that he
could nnd would, take ranch better care of
it than she herself couhL and: sLe finally

The gentlemsn then procured lodging

as his cousin: But t latter, on discov

sojourny.and the couple thereafter moved,

elapsed. While at the Continental, ho-w-evr,
Mr. Jones was struck by eruoraenta

companion that he was nothing let thati
a minister of the Gospel, and requesting;
her lo pray with' him; aud pray', together,.,
on bended knees, they did. Subsequently,
Mr Jones conducted his lady friend to hts
own residence in th northern section af
the oily, introducing as his wife a Mrs '
Selgfried. - , . ' ?
The arrangement Lad been that Mrs.'
