Of the Chinese men-of-war which escaped the French bom bardment at Foo Chow one was stranded and bad her back broken. The other met with no mishap.

French transports are shell ing the vlllazes on the heights around tho arsenal. Admiral Cocrbct opened fire at two p. a. and the Chinese answered almost simultaneously. The dock yard arsenal fired Immediately, bat with only partial success. The eleven ves sels forming the Chinese fleet were merely light river and roast transimrts and were in reality toys. The French had eight heavily armed ships, namely, the Volta, Duzay, Troaln, Dclavine, Aspic, Vlperr, Louis and Yillars. Several Chinese gunboaii main tained bravely a desultory fire for about a quarter of an hour, when the survivors of their crews leaped overboard. Tha combat was practically finbhed in seven minutes. The superiority of the French artillery mads the contest ot her dis ables ot the Chinese vessels no fi'ht It was a massacre. This Is the opinion ot every spectator. Two eight ton gunboats of the Chinese fleet fousht well, one sinking near the English man of war Champion, while the other was stationed about the Junks and made a good stand. The French kept up tho fre on the arsenal 'and neigh boring buildings, forts, barracks and villages till two p. m. although the resistance from the shore batteries eeaed abont three.
