3lattliiru Drryfn VIxHk His Brother.
Matthieii Dreyfus paid his first visit
to his brother at three o'clock yester
day afternoon, the interview lasting
half an hour. The brothers threw
themselves into each other's arms.
Matthieii said he found his brother
agid and broken in health, but not
the physical wreck he feared. In
spite of his sufferings. Dreyfus" eyes
are as bright, and his mind us clear,
and his intelligence as keen as when
he was occupied with his duties on the
gei'eral staff. He was troubled with
insomnia during the voyage, but has
r.LM recovered, and last night he had
a refreshing sleep. The prisoner is
stil! suffering from dysentery, but it
is now slight, and there is every rea
rcn to believe he will rapidly recuper
ate his forces. Naturally he is under
mi (Ileal treatment.
DrefnN in C.nod Spirits.
Matthieii found his brother in good
i spirits, and buoyed up by the necessity
ol mustering all his strength for the
n ining deal, and by the hope that at
last he will have justice done him. He-
i is extremely reserved an to his life on
l'il's island, which has left an indeli
ble impression, and remains in his
memory as a horrible nightmare.
