War News Condensed.
News of August 15th.
There was a battle at Meti ou Sunday
and the French were worsted, although Xa
poleou claims a victory. Ivapolcon, in a
dispatch from Longeville, August 14, 10 P.
M. 6uys: 'Our army commeuoed to cross
to the left bank of the Moselle this morning.
Our advance guard had no knowledge of
the presence of any force of the enemy.
When half of our army bad crossed over,
the Prussians suddenly attacked in great
force. After a light of lour hours they
were repulsed with great loss to them."
The Queen ol Prussia yesterday received
the lollowing dispatch, dated near Metz
Sunday evening: "A victorious cumbat
occurred near Metz to-day, the troops of the
First and Seventh Corps participating. I
hasten to the 6cene of contact. Will-am."
Tne corps of General Ladmirault and De
Caew were engaged in the fi.-ht; Marshal
Bazaiue was present. A .Louuou aisjiaicn
6ay8 another great battle is reported o have
occurred near Metz, Monday morning, in
which the Prussians were victorious. A
dispatch to the N cw York Herald lrom Fort
sach says the French, while retreating to
the west 6ide of the Moselle, wera attacked
by the Prussians under General Steiumetz's
command. The French were thrown into
great confusion, and alter a gallant stand
were routed by the Prussians. The slaugh
ter was great. A dispatch from Carsruhe
Bays the Prussians now cccupy Muihauscn
and Besancon. One hundred thousand of
the Land webr are crossing the frontier.
The Paris newspapers state that Nancy
was given up to the Prussians because it
was an open city, and the French troops
retired to Toul, which, being a fortified
place, gives them a better chance to resist
the Prussian advance. Plaizburg still holds
out- Bitsche has not yet been captured, as
has been supposed, but still holds out
against the Prussians. The Prussians
have arrived at Vijjneul, a few miles from
Metz, and are swarming up the Joselle
The French blew up two bridges at Vigue
ul to check the rapid advance of the Ger
mans. A Paris dispatch states that 30,000
troops of JcMahou's corps, who were cut
off lrom the French army, and believed to
have fallen into the hands of the Prussians,
have arrived at Strasburg in safety. Le
Korde reports Marshal McMahoa at Toul.
The Cotistitutionnel, however, says be is at
Jfancy. Twenty French citizeus'of Woerth,
were shot by the Prussians in retaliation
for cruelties said to have been inflicted on
wounded German prisoners. Disturbances
of a serious character occurred at Marseil
les and Lyons on Sundav. Crowds ap
peared in the streets shouting "Down with
the Emperor 1" Three persons were killed.
There was also quite a riot in Paris. Fif
ty persons were arrested. A Paris paper
states that Victor Emmanuel, of Italy, has
been released from his promise to lurnish
troops to France. The mission U Denmark
is also pronounced a failure.
News of August 16th.
It was reported in London yesterday that
a great battle had taken placa at Verdun,
and it was rumored that the Prussians were
victorious. The details of the light on
Mondty are mostly from Prussian sources.
The Prussians claim that the French were
driven back inti the fortifications of Metz.
A dispatch from Berlin says that late Mon
day afternoon the First and Seventh Prus
sian Army Corps vigorously aitacaea tiie
French forces uoder the walls 01 Aletz. A
sanguinary conflict ensued, when the
French were at length driven into the city,
with the loss of four thousand. The London
Telegraph reports that after the French
retired behind the fortifications a second
contest ensued, which resulted in the re
pulse of the Prussians, in an almost hand-to-hand
encounter upon the walls of the
outer line of works. The Prussians were
finally beaten off by the French, supported
by the fortifications. An official bulletin
published in Berlin, says the little fortress
of Henry capitulated on Sunday, after a
short bombardment by the Second Bavari
an Corps. A great quantity of provisions
and six guns were captured. In the Corps
Legislatif yesterday, Count Palikao stated
that be was not prepared to speak of the de
feat the Prussians are said to have sus
tained, but of a terioua check, forcing them
to retire and forego their attempt to disturb
the retreat of the French army. He had
no official dispatches touching the events
of Monday, but be had read news from re
liable sources end might state that the
Pruss:ans have been checked several times,
and were retiring toward Commercy. lie
was full cf confidence, but could not, at
present, enter upon details. In a few days
a much greater force would be under the
command of Jarshal Bazaine, the only and
true Commander-in-Chief. An official dis
patch from the Prefect of Metz to the Mini,
ister of the Interior 6ays a body of German
Uhlans were seen in the neighborhood of
Commercy, making toward Bar le Due, and
in order to impede the advance of the
enemy they cut the railroads in that sec
tion. The Sub-Prefect of Verdun, in a dis
patch to the Minister of the Interior states
there was no news from Metz, and nothing
was known to have occurred yesterday.
He reports that persons who reached Ver
dun from Mels report that at the battle on
Monday the Prussians lost over forty thou
sand men, and were completely defeated.
He also states that on Monday the enemy
had been seen from Verdun retreating to
ward the sauth. It is stated that this in
telligence has not been verified by the
Government, and is given to the public un
der reserve by the Minister of the Interior.
A special correspondent of the New York
World in London telegraphs that the posi
tion of the vrench is most critical, and it is
doubtful if they can retrieve themselves.
The Prussian army is believed to be a mil
lion strong. General Proeher, commanding
the Zouaves of Marshal McMahon's corps,
gives an account of the terrible losses sus
tained by his troops. Out of sixty-five offi
cers forty-seven were killed, wounded and
missing. General Colem was killed. Al
fred De Gratumont, the Duke's brother lost
an arm. General Prochtr says the other
Corps suffered almost as much as McMa
hou's. General Proeher states that he
has but 500 or. 600 Zouaves left, without
knapstcks, tents, clothes or food.
Just as we are going to press, C W. Crom
well reports to us that a great battle has
just occurred at JLfetz. The French went
into the fight in a starving condition, and
of course were badly whipped. The French
troops are badly demoralized, and are clam
oring loudly against Napoleon. There is
some prospect of England going into the
fight. She is fearful of too great an ag
grandizement of Prussia, as Bismarck has
determined to make a conquest of territory
as a consequence of success.
Death of Admiral Farragut.
Pobtsvocth, IT. IT., August 14. Admiral
Farragut died to-day very peacefully at
twelve o'clock, precisely, surrounded by
his family and friends, at the residence of
Commodore Fennock at the Navy Yard.
The remains will be deposited temporarily
in a vault here until the final resting place
has been decided upon.
Accident is 3Ieicsvili.e Tottxship.
On Tuesday morning, llayden JIartin,
of Center township, had his hand torn
off by a threshing machine, on the
farm of Obidiah Lewi, ot Meigsville
township, lie had been feeding the
machine, and being about through
with the threshing, he had a wisp of
6traw in his hand, and was brushing
the ehatterings into the machine,
when his attention was called to the
"straw-carriers," and while looking at
them, the wisp of straw was caught in
the cylinder, and, before he was aware
of it, his hand was drawn in, and sev
ered from his arm. Mr. Martin is
about thirty five years old; has a wife
and several children, and depends on
his daily labor for a livelihood.
If England should be drawn itto the
war, our foreign mail service would be en
tirely suspended all because Congress,
before it adjourned, did not provide oppor
tune measures for the revival of American
commerce. And the suspension of our
mail service would not be the worst; there
would be no ships ia which to carry our
surplus produce, so much wanted by Eu
rope, and consequently our farmers would
miss a golden opportunity.

The Testimony of Science.
The New York Trilume has an
article on "Moderate Drinking,"
from which we clip the following:
Tho treatise oi Dr. Elam on a
Physician's Problems, published in
London last year, is probably the
ninst r-nmnlfln pssfiv fin 'Oinomfl.n-
ia" yet issued, though it only meetp
the subject incidentally. "I assert,"
HO Buy s, Ulal tins UIBCliFC in aimusn
as well and characteristically mark
ed, in its pyschical aspect?, as small
!pos is in its physical, that it is ber
iertitarv, and that its victims un
!ju6tly crowd our criminal assem
' blies. The instincts of an oinoman
j iac Reem to be as violent and little
under control from tho intellect or
will as that of 4a carnivorous tin
j mal when it tastes blood.' The a!-.
chohol-pcison acts, as any careful
observer must have noted, as rapid
ly upon tho blood and stomach.
We urge this subject, gloomy and
distasteful as it is, upon our readers,
and shall not cease to urge it.
"It can not too soon bo made a
popular conviction that alcohol is
not only 'liquid damnation,' but the
generator of" an incurable physical
disease, always in some form trans
mittcd to the offspring. Every au
thority upon tho subject coincides
in tho opinion that the habit ol
moderate drinking, apparently
harmless in the parent, manifests
itself invariably in the child in oin
omania, or in epileptic or insane
tendencies. Vie ourselves know
cases where the grandlather yet
lives, a hale, hearty tippler, and
children and grandchildren, in
spita of moral and religious train
ing, hare gone down the same inex
orable path, devoured by the irre
si6tblo craving for drink. 'For
this disease,' says Dr. Elan:, 'there
is but one cure: total and entire re
straint, so as to prevent for a long
period any possibility of indulgence
in the depraved habits. "We trust
the day is not far off when chronic
alcoholic poisoning will bo as fulb'
mastered as any other disease by
our physicians, and that the poor
boy who feels the first awful craving
may have no more shame in placing
himself under medical care than he
would if t hreatened by any other
ailment. Let science at least do
vhat it can to aid him in his strug
gle with Death, though we legalize
a grog-shop at every corner to
tempt him downward.
'There is no lack of statistics to
prove tho effect of 'harmless moder
ate drinking' upon the next genera
tion. Tho spirit duty was removed
in Norway in 1825. In the next
generation the increase in insanity
was above 50 per cent, advance on
the previous proportion; the in
crease of congenital idiocy 150 per
cent. In Sweden, ac the same time,
Magnus IIuks testifies that 'for this
cause the whole physiquo of the peo
ple is degenerating; insanity, suK
cide, and crime are frightfully on
the increase; new and aggravated
diseases have invaded all classus ol
Hociety, and congenital imbecility
and idiocy are in fearful proportion
to the numbers born. Modcrato
drinking says an eminent authority
on diseases of the brain, sometimes
produces in one or more of the chiU
drcu of the person thus indulging,
only a simple neuropathy, or a vic
ious and defoctive organization, but
thete, when duo to such an origin,
are capable of giving rise in the
next or third generation to affec
tions of the mind of the gravest pos
Letter from Illinois.
Onio Town, Bureau Co., III.,")
August 8th. 1870. j
Editor Conservative : Thinking a
line from this part of Illinois might
be interesting to your many read
ers, I write you a little on the sub
ject of crops, weather, business, &&
. JJut very little Winter wheat is
sown here. Spring wheat is tho
kind used, and is sown the last of
March and the 1st of April. It will
not yield over from ten to fifteen
bushels to the acre this year. Oats
will yield about twenty or twenty
five bushels lo the acre, which is
not more than half a crop. Uarley
will yield lrom ten to fifteen bush
els to the acre, which is not p.nore
than half or third of a crop. Hay
will make but half a crop, but will
be of very good quality. Timothy
hay is worth 15 a ton. Early po
tatoes are a light crop, but, from
present indication, late ones will
be good. Garden vegetablos are
moderately good. Lack of rain has
been the cause of our light crops.
Corn looks well, and if tt fiost
don't come too soon, will be a go 3d
crop. Thero is a largo quantity of
old corn in the country yet.
Ohio low nship has the mo6t plow
land of any township in tho county.
The Prairie is high and sloping to
the South, and is well adapted to
farming purposes. The fences are
mostly hedge, but some are of wire,
cotton-wood, buck-thorn, and wil
low, while there is but little board
or rail fence. All the limber used
here is Pine, which is shipped from
other Stales. IVe have plenty of
good water at a depth of from 16 to
40 feel. Quite a numbor of "Wind
Pumps are used for drawing water
for 6tock, which cost from S75150,
per 6iz3 and qnality. The town
bhips aro all six miles square, and
the roads are all laid ont regularly
one mile apart. Tho roads aro all
dirt roads, but aro very good, beicg
muddy only in the Winter or early
in the Spring. School houses and
churches are very plenty, and are
good, I may 6ay costry, much better
than in Ohio generally. The cli
mate is very healthful; there is a
good breeze nearly all tho time;
days are hot and nights cool. Bus
iness is more active here than in
your vicinity; the towns have more
life in the way ot manufactures of
all kinds. There m much more
land farmed here than in Ohio; our
land being nearly all tillable, not
wasted by hills and hollows.
Princeton, the county-seat of Bu
reau cuunty, is a very business
place, and has some very large and
co6lly buildings, one of which is
the iligh School bouse, which cost
S75.000, and will excel any- build
ing of the kind west of Chicago.
The money was loaned to the town
to build it by Wm. C. Bryant, the
American Poet; Bureau county
having been the home of the Bry
ant family for over thirty yeurs.
The Chicago, Burlington and Quin
cy Ilailroad was built through this
county in 1S54. It runs through
Princeton, and is the be6t paying
road in the State. Passenger and
freight trains run .over it almost
every hour m the day, and are
crowded with business all the time.
The town of Princeton boasts of
the Pedestrian, Mr. J. M. Reynolds,
who walked 100 miles in 22 hours
and 10 minutes, tho 23rd of last
March. Land hero is worth from
?5075 per acre. A great amount
of stock is raised here; feeding the
grain pa)ing better fhan selling it,
although we have n good market
for all kinds of produce. Machine
ry of all kinds are used here in
farming. There will be a good
crop of apples this year, and al
most evervone ban an orchard.
Thisis not much of a peach country,
yet there are plenty of them here,
shipped from the southern part of,
this dtate and lrom .Michigan.
The farm residences, and other
buildings that havo been built re
cently in this country, are very
costly, and of all tbemost improved
styles. John P. Woottcn.
For the Conservative.
Editor Conservative : I observe
the Herald, ot the 12th inst , pub
lishes in full, the proceedings of tho
"County Democratic Convention,"
containing a series of resolutions,
the 5th one of which 1 think de
serves a little special notice, for as
a specimen of political demagogism
and deep laid scheme of deception.
I have seldom seen it equalled. It
reads as follows :
"Resolved, 5th, That this Convention
deplores the evils of intemperance, and
believes the laws now in existence upon
the Statute Books of Ohio, amply sufficient
to restrain the unlawful traffic in intoxica
ting liquors, and that all practicable and
Constitutional efforts properly made to
suppress the evil, will meet with our hearty
approbation and approval."
This resolution, doubtless, was
intended to conciliate the favor,
and secure the co operation of the
Temperance element of the Demo
cratic party; and, upon the face of
the thing, to the superficial observ
er, it does, no doubt, seem to con
tain all that honesty and philan
thropy require. But what are the
facts in ibe case?
In tho first place, I havo no
doubt but the very man who wrote
that resolution can be sct-n sitting
on our street-corners in a state of
intoxication almost any day in the
week, and this fact establishes two
others, to-wit: That the law, if
intended to -prevent tho sale of in
toxicating liquors, is very difficult
to execute, and hence is almost
uselehs; or, if he procures it in ac
cordance with the law, it makes
him drunk all the same.
But I make the assertion here,
and I challenge contradiction, that
there is not a law on the Statute
Books of Ohio, which was ever in
tended, or by which it is possible,
to prevent the ealo of intoxicating
liquors in our State. But, on the
contrary, the traffic in ardent spir
its is fostered and protected by the
law, the same as is any other form
of merchandise; and, probably,
there is no man in the County
more fully aware of the fact, than
the riter cf said resolution; and,
hence, the ba3e deception and un
blushing fraud intended to be
palmed off upon the unwary, Tem
perance Democrats, by the taking
assertion, "that this Convention be
lieves the laws now existing upon
tho Stututo Books of Ohio, amply
sufficient lo restrain the unlawful
traffic in intoxicating liquors," &c;
and, yet, bo knowing that the
present laws guarantee the sale of
all the whisky that even he requires.
He will not admit that ho asks any
one to violate a law of tho State by
ec'.litig him whisky. lie knows it
is a legal traffic, and is content.
He will prate to you by the hour
of the high taxes you have to pay,
but docs not tell you that nine
tenths of all the crime and pauper
ism ol tho State, is the direct result
of the rule of intoxicating liquors.
and that, in lo, the otaie ot Uhio

and board of criminals alone, to
say nothing aooni; me immense
tax upon the resources of tho State
to build hospitals, alms-houses, and
infirmaries, for the care of the sick,
wounded, insane, and destitute
victims of this terrible curse and
accursed traffic. Yet, when all
these items are summed up, they
constitute about forty per cent, of
all the moneys paid into the public
Temperance Democrats, of Mor
gan County and who, these times,
does not profess to be a Temper
ance man ? who, so imbecile, as rot
lo admit intemperance to be a great
evil ? can you longer continue to
be a party to this nefarious traffic,
by witholding your needed aid to
suppress it? Will you continue to
6ubmit to pay this enormous tax
upon your honest industry, sc that
a class of the most unprincipled
wretches in the community may
thrive upon a villainous occupation,
which brings more destitution,
wretchedness, and woe upon man
kind, than war, pestilence, and
famine combined ? No 1 lam con
