AVe piehiiuie ot liers have opposed him from motives equally honehl. Jiut if we aeud Mr Gardner into the Vermont Senate to epeal for the County, there is dan ger thut the people of the State will be led to believe that we have been de ceiving them as to the true nature of our local difficulties. If the people of Vermont ore once made to believe that, we would not give much for the influ ence of Bennington County Republi cans in State politics for the next ten years. Nothing could injure the Re publican party of Bennington County so much na the election of Mr Gardner to the State Senate. 1 as iu!l ( fi i.m ii,eitiUe In Troy and t ))!.!, flu !! c-otitraiT. lie ol tent, i f Mr tiu.ti.tr L uu iulmtj of offcritig any rcuUitce to the grant iiiv' of a c harter fur aticb road T1 If make no quewUoo aa to the pioptiety of chartering ai)..ln r n.m., but they have a very dici.led oj-rt4ou Ui it leing boiit over the route detirrd b Mr Gardner frienda of lh Trrr k Boston tiilaiokiv iirr, nnm wi o ll"l, ,hi 1 1 xi a U. not 1 1 TLr fut f il.

As at Mitt aa such a load ia built, the link between that station and North Betiniugtou would of course I! diwotiliniied. Thus all the biihiiiehu of the Western Vermont tralley goiug to Troy would be forced to East Bennington and thence back to Wal louiaac, making a route ten miles longer thau the one heretofore in use. And this would be done when a road by way of North Bennington would serve every iuterebt of the village of Bennington quite as well. There can be no doubt concerning the locality from which Mr Gardner's pemihteut action in favor of such a route receive its life, or the mo tive by which it is prompted. No one can estimate the duiu.ge it would be to the people of this section to have their western route materially and permanently lengthened. When the unfortunate results of a project would bo so great; they should take pains to interfere with every chance of its success. Our people have a great present and future interest iu securing the defeat of Mr Gardner. I OH MoO I II W I . ii : t ; i i . iv, c I I, t tl. I- .i !

The suspension of specie payments in France so soon after the commencement of hostilities, iseenis to occasion a good deal of surprise, as an indication of un expected weakness. It seems to be expected that Germany will follow suit, bringing about an almost universal sus pension of specie payment in tho old world, at the time the American finan ciers are trying to solve tho problem how to resume specie payments. France is credited with $380,000,000 of specie, Germany with 400,000,000.- What will be tho effect of releasing this amount from circulation and use as currency, is tho inquiry that is passing around among financial men. Will it seek investment in American bouds? is a suggestive inquiry an inquiry that stiffens Americau secutities by a simple mention. Possibly this European sus pension may give tho essential life to American resumption ; a result devout ly to lie desired. t hW I J i lolte eaM j ha I t'i luK am i.-. l-i lion' tio iioi!g dcK-t.-e lay ;i" ('..; t St. l . tuakii-.g the position :;). :ii-, i.ilv i:njoe::'it.i!.ii' rtri-n ;t'i. ;m 1 csii pfol'-ct iin' tin- 1'ri ni II ro.iv, r j-ip.-- ( '.

The stringency is caused partly by the large shipments of gold, which having boon deposited in oar banks, was held by them aa part of their reserve, aud being drawn diminishes both the deposits and the reserve.

Thoileill.'lllils of the war on Uernaii population are thus stated by a cirrespoudent : One requires to be in Germany to have brought home the fill practical work ing of a system tint so sharply, with out distinction of (ersons, gathers in all alike to coiuptihory service. The result is that at prent iu Prussia all men lietween 20 ant 3!l, imt disibleil or for special reamns otherwise em ployed, are in the ield. It is plainly impressive to see tk' deserted aspect of German cities. iVlio does not re member the busy enwds in the narrow streets of Cob gnu?

The ground was favorable lor a good view til boih po sitions, and it was apparent at a glam c that the French had nlready relinquish ed a line of defense important to them tactically as well us strategically. By two o'clock th i French batteries covering the Verdun road from the tioith uiid east were silenced, and the Prussians bad advanced so fur (ruin the south of that road us to occupy the fiirin house ut Malmaison, a little north west from Gravclotte, Twenty min utes Liter, the French lire wo slackened and wavered, that the Prussian butter ies were once mure pushed forward and took up a new position in fi'mit of Grave lotte. At 3.20, the Prussian cavalry went into action. They advanced un der a hot lire from the French guns. The attack was made) in considerable force by the Uhlans, both cuirassiers, and hussars, but they were at, tilst without infantry support, and could make no serious impression on a posi tion still naturally Hlroug and still held iu force by all the arum of the French. Hut half an hour later, it being now nearly four in tho afternoon, a portion of tho third -Prussian corps had come upon the ground. The infantry regi ments were formed us fast us they eniiie into tho position from which the serious attack was to be directed on what ap peared to be the key of the French lines. At 4 the Thirty-third regiment, of the Prussian lino was launched against the same! position which the cavalry hud failed to reach. It moved forward with the utmost determination ; but. tho French by this time had reiu fui'iied their defense more strongly than the Prussians had their attack, and they still outnumbered their assailants and steadily imiiutuiiied the second line which they hud occupied. As tho dif ferent divisions of itie Prussian urmy cuino into position they ut tucked forci bly, but were repeatedly driven back with heavy loss. The struggle lasted, with varying fortunes on dilierent por tions of the lines, until 8 o'clock. I'p to that hour the French held their ground. At 8 o'clock the Prussians, mansin heavy forces on their left , attacked and carried La Villelle humlel, covering the Fiench right. This, once iu Pj'imsmn hands, enabled thorn, to enfilade fiie French lines, (ind take in reverse some of their outworks. The ground the French held so ohstuiulely mid gallant ly during nine hours, they were cum pelled to abandon, and ul !l o lock were ilriven back upon M'eU, nud under cov er of its outlying (oris ; their ht-t hold upon t ie Verdun loud was abandoned. Their communications were destroyed to tin.' east and !

It tuny be, however, that the vigor of the Prussian attack has been such as to keep u large pull of (he French still un der cover of the guns of Met,, while the rest advanced along their western line of eomuiiiiiicution with Verdun. In the buttle of Saturday, east of Met,, tho attack was made by Gen. Stoiu tnetz, who drove the French into tneir works. The retreat of the French on Verdun begun Sunday, but was checked by the uriny of Frederick Churlc which hud crossed the river near Ponl-u-Motis-son. The buttle of Tuesday was be tween the greater part of the army of Gen. piunine and the army of Freder ick Charles, and this was continued on Wednesday at Muis-lu-Tuur. The movement on Priey, made by Gen. Steinmet., is still involved in doubt, but it was probably made lir the pur pose of attacking the French in their rear and right Hank as they retreated toward Kt aiu, and cutting their line in two, west of Met,, The Jierlin dis patches now declare thut this was done, and tli nb a large part of the French forces wuM driven buck to the nhcllcr of tho fortress. Hut whether tho two ar mies of .Sleiniuet, and tho priuee royal have joined on the went of Metis is not stated.
