THE people of the duchy of Gotha

THE story of the Persian Shah boil,

IT is pleasant to be able to tell peo

THE Imparcial, of Madrid, says it
learns that President Balmaceda, of
jphili, and the leaders of the Chilian in

cate the marriage of Prince Ferdinand
of Roumania to the woman of his
choice. She, by the bye, is variously
named, from day to day, as Mile.

so that one solid reason for her

she would get the fixed name—such as

A MONKEY in New York got a bottle
of whisky the other day, and, after
swallowing the contents, proceeded to
rip things up generally, and even went
so far as to decline to hand over the
pennies that were given to him for his

squander them all on himself. There

THE latest relentless rehabilitator
of history is M. Arens, who ruth lessly
smashes the romance of "Paul and
Virginia." He says that Virginia de
la Tour was not shipwrecked and
drowned, but was saved by Paul
whom she married. The romance
further is spoiled by the discovery
that the two set up a small shop for
the sale of cookies, candies, rum and
other sea stores for sailors.

electricity has taken the place of

NEW YORK, Aug. 24 —The Herald this
morning hasValparaiso cables substantially
as follows- President Balmaceda and the
junta de Cobierno are clinched the final
desperate struggle for the mastery of the
republic of Chile.
The chosen battle ground is in full view
of the city ot Valparaiso, and thousands of
anxious eyes are watching from every point
of vantage the battle which is to decide the
fate of the country.
Tlie battle has been raging practically for
three days. The fiist engagement was at
the mouth ot the Aconcauua on Friday
and resulted in a reverse to the govern
ment. The final tests of strength is now
being made at Vina del Mar Beach, directly
across Valparaiso bay, and less than three
When news reached here that an army of
3,000 rebels had been landed at Quintero
bay Thursday, Balmaceda and his generals
were taken by surprise, but the utmost
activity was used in getting troops to the
liont so as if possible to prevent the in
vading army from crossing the Aconcugua,
the liver south of the bay. The arrange
ments were made hurriedly and only a lit
tle over halt of the troops weie available
or this purpose.
Sixoi the insurgent warships were an
chored in Cosnon bay, at the mouth of tne
river, and under the cover of their guns the
army of the Junta undertook the task of
forc.ng,a passage of the river Friday morn
ing. A most desperate and bloody battle
resulted, lasting nearly all clay.

It was not urnil late in the evening that
the attacking army arnved in iront of Bal

late to give battle.
In the nieantiinf, President Balmaceda,
withe\eiy available man in his depait
meiit, witn himself in command, went to
the iront. He had over 13,000 a\ailable
fighting men, while the insurgent forces
rorces had been reduced to less than
7,000. At the back of the gov
ernment line is Fort Callao,
the heavy guns of which have done good
work in to-day's battle, both in raking the
enemy by land and preventing the msur

night, irom doing anything more effective
than long-range firing.
The Congressionahsts attaeked in force
this morning, and all day long the battle
has uged with ttie utmost fierceness. The
warships did all they cculd to aid their
land ioices, but they had regard lor the
heavy guns in the lorts, and were com

Consequently they were not nearly so e'

a\adable machine and rapid hre guns, to
aid, as a na\al auxiliary bngade, the at

intense excitement prevails in this city.
The roar of heavy artillery and the
sharp rattle ot bnia'l arms resound
through the streets and are echoed
back from the hgh hills surrounding
tne city. Everybody who isle here has
