September 1.—'-There will he a devil of a fight for that crest before it is won or lost/' said Sheridan, straining his eyes through his field-glass at the hill, which was not three miles from ns, where wo stood with the full sun shining on it from behind us. At half-past one tho French cavalry—this time, I presume, a regiment of carbiniers— made another da»h at the Prussians, who, on tlieir part, were bring reinforced every minute. l>ut they met with the same fate ;vs their brethren in the iron jacket, and were sent with In avy loss to the right about. The Prussians took advantage of their flight to advance their line a couple of hun dred yards, near the line which the French infantry held. These ml venturous Prussians split into two bodies, the two bodies having a break of a hundred yards in their line. We were not long in seeing the object of this movement, for the little white putt's from the crest behind the skirmishers, fol lowed by a commotion in the denso*Frcnch masses, showed us that. Yes, dinble »■ dr /'russ'iiirt.i have contrived, heaven only known how. to get a couple of four-pounders up the steep ground, aud have opened on the French. Something must have, at this point, been very wrong with the French infantry, tor instead of attacking the Prussians, whom they still outnumbered by at least two to one. they remained in column on the hill, seeing their only hope of retrieving the day vanish from before then ir eyes; still they did not stir. Then the French cavalry tried to do a lit tle Balaklava business—tried, but without the success of the immortal sis hundred, who took the guns. Down came tho cuir rassiers once more, this time tiding straight for the two field pieces; but before they had got within two hundred yards of the guns, the Prussian formed a line, as if on parade, and waited until that furious French horse hud ridden on to a point not fifty yards away. They fired. The tire seemed to us to empty the saddles of almost the ifhole of t ie leading squadron. Tho dead so strewed the groujiT as to block the path of the fol d close before them the lowing squadron an< direct and dangerous re,ad they meant to follow. Their dasi: at the guns came to a halt. When once this last effort of the French horse had been made and had failed, though pushed galiautly as far as men aud horses could go. the French infantry also fell swiftly back toward Sedan. It tell hack be cause it saw that its ebauce of carrying that fiercely contested hill was gone, and saw that with the Prussians holding the honor of crowniug it with guns, their own French line in its face could not much longer be held. In an instant, as the French retired, the whole slope of the ground was covered by swarms of Prussian tiraileurs, who seemed to rise out of the ground and push forward by help of every slight roughnt ss and dent oil the surface. As fast as the French went back those reckless enemies followed. After the last desperate charge of the French cavalry, fb uer.il Sheridan remarked u> me that ho never saw anything so reck less. so utterly foolish ;ia that last charge. It was sheer murder. The Prussians, after the French infantry fell back, advanced rapidly, so rapidly that retreating squadrons of French cavalry being pressed too i basely, turned suddenly round and charged desperately once again: but it was all of no use. THb days of break ing squares are over, and the tlria blue Line soon stopped the gallant onset. It struck me as mos*- extraordinary that French had ucithex arfillerv this point tl nor mitraille.trs, and especially the latter, 'on tho field to cover their infantry. The position wv- a most important one. and certainly worth straining every nerve to defend. One thing was cl -ar enough—that tho French infantry, after once meeting the Prussians, declined to try conclusions with them again, and that the c ivalry were seek ing to encourage them by their example. About two o'clock in the morning other reinforcements came to the Prussians over this long disputed nil', between Torcy and Sedan, to support tin* regiments already es tabiished there. All the time that tiii conflict was going on, under Fritz's ey mine, may i add that another was fought none the less severe and as murderous for the Bavarians as the one I have attempted to describe for the French. If there was a want of mitrailleurs on the hill above Torcy. there was certainly no want of them in the Bazailes ravine." On that side there was for more than an hour one continuous roar of musketry and mitrail ieurs. Two Bavarian officers told me that the loss i iii t!n*ir if gin cuts was terrific, and that it w as tlie mi: uaillcurs which made the havoc. At five mi antes : m*; two o'clock iu the ai teraoon tlie Frem ,i totaliv r abandoned the hill In■* v. een Foitv ■and Scj nil. and fell back on the f inirgour o tin- c.i: rul, just outside : ^ lost for tl.e French,' tiring o tho great <1 One would fane v iNt lie; U'd hi* \ 'intis. lot ere l when there all al mg tin. now become tli rampa-ts >i t.

"I have tobl the Belgian Miui-der of War." said Count Bismarck. " that so long as the Belgian troops <lo their dm t to disarm anv number of French soldiers who ■deral y cross the frontier, 1 will strictly respect the neutrality of Belgium; but if. ou the contrary, the Belgians, either through negli gence or inability, do not d -ann and cap ture every man in French uniform who set-s his ioot iii their country, we shall at once follow the enemy into neutral territory v. ith our troops. ' Considering that the French have been tlio tirst to violate-tlie Belgian soil, 1 have been down to have a look at the Bi Igi.in troops'ileal' the frontier.'' added Count ihs man k. " I confess they do not inspire me with, a very high opinion ol'tlieir martial ardor or discipline , only nli-n they have their great coat - i u one can see a great deal of paletot, but hardly anv soldier." 1 asked his excellency whether he thought the Emperor was iu Sedan. "Dll, no," was this reply, not very wise, but he is not < as t.* put himself iu Sedan jm F or once iu hU life Count wrong. At a quarter to three o' came to where I was stair thought the French were got break out beneath ua in the Second rian Corps. At ten minutes to four o'clock ( Sheridan told me that Napoleon and Lour were in Sedan. At twenty minutes past three o'clock the Bavarian- below us not only contrived to get. inside the fortifications qt S 'dan, hut "o maintain themselves there, working their way forward from house to house. About four there was a great fight for the possession of the ridge above. Bazeiile. t hat done, Sedan was swept on all sides bv the Urussan cannon. Thiq point of vantage was carried by the I'russians at 4:40, and when carried there could no longer be a shadow of doubt as to the ultimate fqtc of Sedan. • About five o'clock there was again a sud den suspension of,the cannonade along the whole line. Many were the speculations as to the cause, but nobody seemed to divine the truth. You may judge of our surprise when four minutes later we saw a French officer es corted by two Uhlans coming at a sharp Bav oral ••Napoh •on is itc so t ooilsh now/' J id in are k wad oek tie king i 4 . sa \ ng ht* g to tr ami Karl As i n knot < green Dire ear! i:t trot up tho steep bridge path from Sedan to our post, one of the Uhlans carrying a white, duster on a faggot stick as a flag of truce. The messenger turned out to be a French colonel, eonie to ask the terms of surren der. After a very short eousnltation be tween the King and General Moltke the messenger was tobl that in a matter so im portant ns the surrender of at least 80.000 and an important fortification it was neces sary to send an officer of high rank. "You are therefore to return to Sedan, and tell the Governor of the town to report himself immediately to the King of Prus sia. If he does not arrive in an hoar our guns will again open fire. You may tell The commandant that there is no use of his trying to obtain any other terms than uu comlitional surrender." The Pariemeutiare rode back witli the message. When he was fairly out of ear shot. his mission was must eagerly can vassed. At hidf-past six there arose a sudden cry among the members of tlie King's staff, '•Der Kaiser ist da;" and then came a loud hurrah. Soon wo began to look anxiously for the second flag of truce, and in ten minutes more General lieilly rode up with a letter for tho King of Prussia. As soon as the French General was in sight, the slender escort of euirrassieurs and dragoons we had w ith us was drawn up in line two deep, behind the King. In front of the eteort was the staff, and ten yards in front of them again stood his majesty, King William of Prussia, to re ceive Reilly. That officer, as we soon learned, was the bearer of an autograph letter from the Em peror Napoleon to King William. The Emperor of the French wrote: "As I can not die at the head of my army, I lay my sword at the feet of your Majesty." Why Napoleon Third could not die as did thousands of his soldiers sword in hand with his feet to the foe is not so clear. On receipt of this most astounding letter there was a brief consultation between the king and crown prince, who had come over from his lull on the arrival of tho flag of truce. Count Bismarck. Generals Yon Moltke and Von Boons. Alter a few minutes' conversation the King sat down on a rush bottomed eliair.aud wrote a note on another chair, held a.s a table by two aides-de-camp, to the Emperor, begging him to*come the next morning to the King uf Prussia's headquarters at Ven dres. While the note was being written. Couut Bismarck came up to Generals Sheridan and Forsyth, and myself, and heartily shook oar hands. • 1 s t me congratulate yon most sincerely, Couni." saiil General Sheridan. General Sheridan said : "lean only com pare the surrender ot Napoleon, to that of General Lee at Appomattox. Courthouse." When it came my turn to grasp the Chan cellor's hand, 1 could not heln saying, after I had warmly congratulated nini: "You can not but feel a pnde, Count Bismarck, in having contributed so largely to the win ning to-day of victory." "Oh, no," my dear sir," was the mild an swer, "I am no strategist, and have noth ing to doAtith the winning of battles. Wiiat 1 am p^W of is that tlie Bavarians, the Saxons OTd the Wurtemburgers have not only been on our side, but have had so large a share, the largest share in the glory of the day. That they are with us, and not against us, that is my doing." " 1 do not think tiii- French will «ay now that the South Germans will not tight b.r our common fatherland." I a.-ki d his Excellency whether Loui- was t.ik* u with his papa, and was tobl that, no one knew, ami I think that no one cared w here the small young man was. Whcu iiie King bad written bis letter, he himself handed it to General Reilly, w ho stood bareheaded to receive it. tin Italian anil Crimean medals glittering on his breast in the fading sunlight. tauten Victoria's image and superscrip tion have not often been seen on the uni form- of men surrendering without condi tions. At twenty minutes to eight General Iff ii!y left for the b"5eagured town, escorted hr the Uhlans. The duster which hail served as a flag of truce was offered to me as a souvenir of this most memorable day. but it had n strong | resemblance to other dusters, and I declined j the profti-red article. Then there was a general demand for something to driult. and Count Bismarck's aid-de-camp produced two bottles of Bel gian beer. < >ne of them his Excellency shared with General Sheridan, General For syth and myself, saying that he drank to the closer union of the three great Teutonic peoples. As soon as General Reilly was gone I was anxious to be off to tlie Belgian frontier, in the hope of getting messages through. But Couut Bismarck's aiii-di-camp assured me that l must wait until the uext morning, and even then must be careful noi to fall: :t to the hands of stray French soldiers, who were known to be ciispcr.-ed in all directions along the Belgian frontier, aud to he little better than bandits. So 1 sle.pt at the village of Cheraugo. a mile behind our po.-t, throughout tie day. and after doing a little hunting for quarters, actually got a bed. next morning 1 started for Belgium. • along i suddenly came, tir-t on a Uhlans, then on two Sigeurs, in the d gold Imperial livery. ly behind them came the traveling of his ma.je.-ty, with Napoleon li! on iiis wav to report himselt a prisoner at King V\ illiam's headquarters at Vetnlres. a iitri" dirty village some t ight miles from Sedan. \s Payments of the Public Debl.

SWINDLING A NEWSPAPER FRAUDULENT CHECK OPERATION GERMAN GAZKTT3 VICTIMIZED A sharp swindle was perpetrated early last evening on our neighbor of tho Oemwn (lairtte. by which a iarge check came into the possession of their cashier for a small amount of cosh. A rongh-iooking customer brought to the eounting-roornof the Rkith liuan an advertisement of I-ceds' foundry, to be inserted one month, aud presented in payment a thcck for eighty dollars, pur porting to be eignrd by Leeds &. Co. The mail clerk then in the counting-room declined to accept the check and pay the balance in cash, and the man went off. Not long afterward the cashier or a clerk of the German Gazette brought the adver tisement of Leeds & Co. to the Rei-ublican counting-room, marked to make five squares. It subsequently appeared that ho took au advertisement from the smart operator for the German Gazette and for Rem;ul$;an for sixty dollars, anil gave him back twenty dollars in greenbacks, that being the differ ence between the amount of the check and tin- advertising bill. Special officers were searching for the unscrupulous operator in fraudulent cheeks last night. Verily, tho world is given to swindling. A similar operation was once successfully attempted on the Republican. Tho cashier took iu tho advertisement and a worthless cheek, and paid out good money. The Case of Captain John Amrrin. Every case has at least two sides, and that of Captain Amivin is not exempt front, the rule. Upon inquiry, yesterday, from gentlemen who ought to know something about him, w? found the suspicion very prevalent that the Captain himself knows perfectly well where L<: is. oven if his wife does not. In short, o.ir in-,airies resulted in giving tis a rather discouraging view oT the whole matter, including Amrein's ap parently mysterious disappearance. About two weeks after his departure from home, Mr. James Todd, who hod lent him one hundred dollars in cash, beganffo look about him with a view to recovering the money. One dislikes above all things to lose money loaned to au ungrateful friend. Finding no other course open, he applied.to Justice Sadler, who, we are assured, ou this occasion acted with a due regard to the equities of the case as well as to his own obligations as a justice. At h :3 request the suit was postponed till the tw< nty-sixth of August, when the plaintiff. Toild, becoming satisfied that the time had come to be prompt rather than merciful, insisted upon having a writ of sequestration, obtained on the eighth, enforced. Arurein left some fur niture not exempted by law. and from the proceeds it was hoped the plaintiff's claim might be satisfied. It is a hard case all ironed. It it not at all right that To ld should lose the money hr- lent Amrein. l! is hard on Mrs. Ainrein to be deserted bv h* r husband, no matter what may be the lv.e-on for it. For she is a a poor woman, w ith two children as good as helpless, and wiih no moans of supporting them or herself. And it is not altogether just to hold Judge Sadler or his officers to blame for performing their legal duties. A. a matter of political levity, we are some times fond of making points against offi cial-. especially of the Democratic persua sion : but, in the way of sober earnestness, we would nor say a word that might wrong the humblest individual. Wo therefore cheerfully attest that the conduct of the plaintiff, the court and the officers, iu this unfortunate case, appear to ha . e boon blameless.

[Special to the New York Tribnne.] London, September 8.— The following re port of a declaration by the French foreign minister comes from a private correspond ent, who is in a position to know tho facts, aud who guarantees accuracy : "Jules Fauvre, having been applied to for a quasi official sanction to a Republican demonstration in Madrid, with an intima tion to Prim that he could be president of the Spanish republic, Favre replied that the government of France will not at this mo ment make any movement to encourage u republic in Spain, aud would even prefer it should not he declared, lor reasons which oblige us to refer to tlie fact that republi can Urn so spread would alienate and terrify the Russian imperial negotiations pending between the Provisional Government anu Russia for an alliance offensive and defen sive against Prussia, should the lat ter prove too exalting as to the terms of peace. In other words, if thus alliance takes place, and it is ou the point of real ization, Russia marches straight on Berlin. She lias already begun to arm, aud scud troops to her Western frontier. If you ask what can tempt Russia, Russia answers that the same military strength which Prussia ha.-, now directed against France will sooner or later be turned against Russia, with a view to acquire all the German provinces of Russia. Tlie correspondent adds: You may make all this intelligence public, for it can not long remain secret. It may be ab solutely depended on. IjONdon, September 8. —Drummond, the banker, writes to tlie Post an interesting account of tfie Emperor, while a prisoner. He says, before long we joined tho roar of the Emperor's train, a cortege of great length. We had a good opportunity to see it, os it passed over the bridge at right angles with the main road. First came the Emperor's own carriages, after these three others something like prison vans, all marked "Maison inilitaire do L'Empereur," and containing the members of his numbers of horses followed, some of which were mounted by the Imperial servants in liveries. Tlie horses were magnificent ani mals, over sixteen hands high; relays of horses for carriages and hacks, saddle horses and Chargers bevond price. At noon tue Emperor alighted at Bouillon, and walked to the hotel. The crowd of people was enormous, but was kept oft' by the Bel gian troops and French officers of high grade, who were among them. Prince Murat strolled about, and the Emperor ap peared at a window, when the crowd hur rahed. The French prisoners were silent, and made no response. It being inpossible to find quarters aud food for all at the hotel, the Emperor dined first, then his suite, aud the rest' eat what they could get. At two o'clock the Emperor, accompanied by General Castelnatt, came to the door of the railway station, lie seemed well, his fa e showing uo emotion, though he leaned heavily on the arm of a servant who led him out. tie walked well, wore a red kepi, embroidered with gold-carved decora tions. Upon dispatches being handed to him, he sat down out of doors on the plat form, and wrote replies to them. He after ward paced up aud down the platform smoking cigarettes; then returned to the waiting room and read the Independanre llelge until the special train arrived, when he departed. The Monitevr says: The Emperor so tvx posetl himself in the battle of Sedan, as to Leave ua doubt of his intention to seek death. The North German Gazette, says of Favre'* manifesto: "it begins with phrases and ends with tho lies of a lawyer, and balderdash." The Rereil and Marseillaise, which have been revived, publish articles which are calculat' d to disturb order.
