Workmen are now engaged in taking down
the brick work of the new cotton factory of
the Messrs. Sprague, which was commenced
last season. About six feet depth ot brick
work had been built, but the rise in tin- river I
flowed it while tlie mortar was green, making j
the part which had been built insecure. The
entire brick work is to be taken down, ami
laid over again from the stone foundations.
No better foundations can be found anywhere
than those upon which the new factory will
rest.

proaching completion. About one hundred
feet on the west side remains to be planked
over. During Friday night the remainder of
the piling on the upper side of the dam was
driven, and the waters of the old Kennebec
which have flowed unbridled to the sea, are now
stopped in their course, and turned back. The
water is now slowly rising in the pond above
and lias commenced to flow through the new
bulkhead. We hope from the thorough man
ner in which the work lias been performed
that the river will remain permanently dam

An old gentleman who h> 1 come down to
the Fair and wlm had evidently been tempt
ed into the shops where something stronger
than new cider is sold, made quite a sensation
on Friday evening, by driving his team down
the railroad traek, supposing it was the public
highway. A thumping, rumbling noise was
heard, and although the incilent occurred a
little alter dark, some individuals went out to
see what was the matter. They found the old
man lashing his horse along while the animal j
was drawing the old fashioned four-wheel
carryall across the railroad sleepers, making
it warm work for the driver. He thought
that was a hard road to travel, hut continued
to urge his old nag on, until he passed from
Market square down the track, und into the
railroad machine shop. The flashing light on
the engines, the strange, weird appearance of
the blackened rafters overhead, and the nmm
mouth iron horses staring him in the face on
every hand, made the old man think that he
had really come to the end of his race, and
was about to enter upon the untried scenes of
purgatory. He was relieved from his strungc
positiod, his teatfl* taken on the turn table,
turned round, and tile old fellow sent on bis
way rejoicing. He doesn't think i^pch of cor
duroy roads. He was very particular to
charge the gentleman assisting him to do
everything on the square, und not injure the
“old mare.”

A despatch received here from Gen. t on
Keensig, at Toul, states that yesterday the
town of Toni w as captured hy storm, hy the
Prussians, after a determined resistance.
Tlie bombardment bad been continuing for
several days, causing great damage in the j
town, and destroying the principal public
buildings.
A favorable opportunity for storming pre
sented itself to tlie Prussian army, and it was
made Use of.
A storming party advanced, and towards
night the Prussian force's carried the town hy
storm, the besieged surrendering to the
Prussians unconditionally.
Despatches from Sceadix, six miles from
Paris, on the heights of which tlie 1’iussians
placed batteries on Monday, report that on
We dnesday la t a violent firing was heard by
reconnoitaring parties upon tile hills over
looking Paris.
'1 lie Prussians could not discover who
were the Contending parties, nr w hetlicr
troops were concerned in the affray.
Berlin, Sept. 24.
Advices from the Prussian front before

A courier from Paris with despatches lias
arrived safely, He reports that the Prussians
had imposed heavy levies for food and money
upon the citizens. The delegates now in this

Marshal B.iziine offers to capitulate at
Metz on condition that he be allow ed to take

Tolrs, Sept. 24.
The Ministry have issued a proclamation ,
to the people stating that France would rather
bury herself beneath her own ruins than ac
cept the insolent conditions proposed by Ger
many.
The excitement governing the classes here
was overw helming, when we received intell
genee of the revolutionary uprising of the
Beds in Paris.
Rumors of the uprising are confirmed and
spread by fugitives from the city, and the |
wildest discord and confusion prevails.
It appears that a detachment of fugitive
Zottav es uud Turees from McMahon's army,
joined the mob in tlie streets of Paris, and
commenced revolutionary- depredations. Gen.
Troehu and Gen. Vinoy, w ith a large force
from outside fortifications entered the city,
for the purpose of quelling the disturbance.
Seven fighting ensued. The result is un
known.
Tlie environs of Paris are now in ruins
from tlie Gates KeUeily to Les Terrcs. Ail
buildings in that part "of tile city have been
destroyed, with the exception of tlie beauti
ful Chapel, erected ’to the memory of tlie
Duke of Orleans.
A large force of Prussians occupy Fon
tainblean. and levied 120,000 francs "on the
inhabitants.
The following is the official proclamation
to France:
Before the siege of I’aris, Favre went to
see Bismarck, to know the intentions of the
enemy.
The following is the declaration of the
enemy:
Prussia wishes to continue the war in i
order to reduce France to second rate pnw- !
ers. Prussia demands Alsace and Lorraine
as tar ns Metz, by right of conquest. Prus-'
sin, before consenting to an armistice, do- I
■minds rendition ot Strasbourg, Tout and!
Montvalerien. Paris is exasperated, ami
will rather bury herself in her ruins. To
such insolent pretensions, we can respond
but by resistance to the last extremity.
Fram e accepts the struggle, and counts upon
her children (signed)

London, Sept. 24.
A despatch from Copenhagen dated last
evening, announces the arrival in the Gulf of
I.uliee of 20 vessels of the French licet.
Special to X. V. Herald :—
A Paris letter of the 20th says,—Sheds to
serve as temporary barracks were in course
ot erection on the boulevards for troops, hut
they are still incomplete. A French officer
of guard remarked bitterly—‘■'This is how
they do things ir France. Instead of work
ing night and day we are never prepared but
are always too late until the Prussians sur
pft.-c us.” The state of affairs creates deep
apprehension throughout the city. State]
Prison birds and murum ers are already be
ginning to show their tee h. Three days ago
a member of the Garde Mobiles while drink
ing in a wine shop he exposed a fitly franc
note, was followed, robbed and murdered in
broad daylight.
Burglaries are committed in tire outskirts
of the city with iinpuity.
Provisions are gradually increasing in
price.
Antipathy jo Imperialism on the one hand
end dread of the Prussians on the other caus
es much annoyance to well-disposed citizens.
It is settled that Local Junta shall rule at
Home, until the plebiscitum is taken.
A few days ago two ladies on the balcony
of a house in Hue Lafayetta were admiring
the passing Mobile heroes, when suddenly a
mob discovered the plate of the “Eagle Ins.
Co.” on the top of the balcony which beat s the 1
impression of the Imperial Bud. Instantly
orb s were raised—“A has l’Aigle.” Groans,
hisses, and menaces followed front the ignor
ant rabble, who evidently believed the plate
to he the Imperial insignia. An attack was
made on the house, but the damage was con
fined to tin* breaking of rails and wrenching
off the plate with bayonets.
A Commission charged with the examina
tion of the private correspondence of the Em
peror have made a brilliant discovery. Let
ters tied with rose-colored ribbon, confined in
a coffct en merguc terie, as productions ol, or
at any rate signed by Margueritte Bellanger.
That a coquette should write the warmest of
warm letters to an Emperor, should she have ;
a chance, is natural enough, and that the Em
peror shoul 1 keep them seems absurd, but as
Emperors are only mortal neither will appear ,
great in the eyes of the valets. The Hepuhlic j
has taken a peep behind the Imperial curtain
and discovered not only what most people i
knew before—that Napoleon III. in had taste '
prefers this plain daughter Blancoisseuse to
the beautiful Eugenie, but also the scandal of
which poor innocents have hitherto been kept
in the dark.
The imperial Mistress in one letter, in- j
forms Man Deaux Sergneur that his name I
shall not perish. What was to be done? i
The Semi-Imperial infant when he made his ‘
how to the world, was a knot to unravel,
which troubled the brains of the populace*, j
Count d’Evinne undertook the affair. His '
judicial robes were laid aside, and as Homme
d'Affairs, he persuaded the unmarried mother
to exchange. The document was legibly
drawn up, stating that the infant was not a
lineal deeendant of Napoleon, for the pur
pose of securing to Margueritte Bellanger
the splendid property of Monehy. At mid- !
night, when the news became known of the *
defeat of Vim cv, the boulevards were wild
" iiii excitement. Montrnartc looked savage.
I.a Villctte was furious, and l.a Chnpcile
turned Prussian blue. The mob seized the
question and declared that our red legged
triends, the Zouaves skcdadled. The mob
lots instantly became the heroes of the hour.
The Prussians report that from the heights
overlooking Paris, they have observed light
ing going on in'the streets with cannon and
musketry.
Advices by way of Chartes attempt to dis
credit the report, but a later despatch from •
Tours Saturday evening, admits that there i
have been constant combats since Friday in •
Paris, between the Reds and the troops under j
Trochu.
Florence, Sept. 24. j
The Roman population tore down the es
cntclu ions of foreign legations on Friday,
where they were combined with papal arms.
When those of Portugal were attacked Gen.
Cudowa interposed. He made an explanation
to the Portugese Ambassador, and promised
his protection in the future. He immediately
issued a proclamation to tlr# people denounc
ing such exces*as violation of the interna
tional law. and threatened severe penalties in
case such lawlessness was renewed.
In the last conflict on tiie occupation of

With elegant ILLUbTKATIVB Enoravinos.
These ure, beyond all comparison, the most extraordinary
works ou Physiology ever published. There is nothing
1 whatever that the Makkied or Single of Kithkk 3ex can
) either require or wi9li to know, but what Is hilly explained,
and many matters of the most important and interesting
i character are introduced, to which no allusion even can be
found in any other works in oar language. All the New
i Discoveries of the aut' or, whose experience is such as
probably never before fell to the lot o any man, are given
n full. No person should be without these valuable books.
Vilcablk Hooks. We have received tlie valuable med
ical works of Dr. Albert II. Hayes. These hooks are of
actual merit, and should find a place in every intelligent
family. They are not the cheap order of abominable trash,
published by irresponsible parties, and purchased to gratify
coarse tastes, but ure written by a responsible professional
[ gentleman of eminence, as a source of instruction on vital
| matters, concerning which lamentable ignorance exists.
The important subjects presented are treated with delicacy,
ability and cure, and. as an appendix, many useful pre
seti pt ions for prevailing com phi ii its are added—Coos Rf
oublican, Lancaster, ,V. H., Sep. 7, 1809,
Dr. Haves is one of the ui"st l -arned and popular physi
cians of the day, and i* entitled to the gratitude of our
j race fur these invaluable productions. It seems to be his
aim to induce nu n and women to avoid the cause of those
i lip ases to which th< y are subject, ami he tells them just
i how and when to do it.—Farmington Chronicle, Far
| nnrtf/ton. Me., Sept. 15, 1609.
The extraordinary success of Dr. Hayes has aroused the
•mu y of a 'ft of pretenders to medical skill, who purloin the
matter, and even chapter titles, from his works, end adver
tise themselves fills, ly and absurdly as memliera of medical
societies in London, Edinburgh, and Dari*, which they
never saw. Hat such transparent tricks can never alienate
, from him the intelligent portion of the omiuuuuty, who
soon learn to distinguish between the scientific practitioner
and the soulbss and brainless quacd.
