J,BVJUKO TELE0RAFH SPECIAL CORBE8POHDKHCE. Paris, June 22, 18G6. We are at last beginninc; to see clearly into the imbroglio which oppresses Europe, and thedenoue ment oi which will, no doubt, be a moat dreadful butchery ot Christians. HUMANITY OF THE PRUSSIANS. The soldiers of Bisraark in openirg tho cam paign, have begun by assuring the people ot those countries which they have invaded, that they have come there as brothers and not as enemies. In less than six days the troops of King William are masters of Hunover, Hesse, ami the Electorate of Saxony. The Hanoverian army, whicM was massed in Cottlncen, in orlcr to form a junction with tha Austrlans, now sees itselt cut off from its ally by the Prussians. All the German papers Inform us that the Prussians have generally been well received by the populations. The soldiers of Bismark who now occupy Wetzlar menace Frankfort, which is defended by the Federal army under the com mand of Alexander 0 Hose. The army called that of the Elbe, coramao-Jed by Prince Frederic Charles, which is now ope rating tn Baxony, consists of thirty-eight thou sand men. The army of Silesia, under the command of the Prince Royal of Prussia, la much interior. , THE AUBTBIAN3 in Silesia, on the contrary, are massed in great numbers under the command ot Marshal JJenedck, to the amount of two hundred and fifty to three hundred thousand. We have not as yet had any battle of importance. However, it must mention THE BATTLE OF BTJMSBTJRQ, on the frontier of Bohemia, where, it is said, the AuBtrians had the advantage. Per contra, at Friedberg, near Frankfort, a regiment of Hessians were completely routed by the Prus sians, who menaced Frankiort. We are daily expecting to hear of a great bat tle, but to do justice to the Ccrmans, we must aay that they do not seem to be in a hurry to come to blows; but the unhappy Teutons already know the wretchedness of war, as all communi cations are interrupted, the rails taken up in several places ; hundreds of families have to lament the absence of brothers, husbands, Ac, called away to the Landwehr. Business is bad and almost dead, and, what is even more deplor able, the cholera has come to make the bad worse ; it hns made its appearance in Berlin, in Stettin, and in Prussian Silesia. ITALY'S DECLARATION OF WAR. On the 20th inst. Victor Emanuel declared war npon Austria, after which he left Florence lor head-quarters at Cremona. The Quadrilateral will be attacked in three or four days. The Italian army will commence operations at four different points at the same time. The Italian fleet will attack Venice, Cialdinl, at the head of eight divisions, will try to cross the Lower Po at Rovigno, Victor Emanuel will try to get hold of the Quadrilaterul, whilst Gari baldi, at the head of his volunteers, will attack Trent, which is the key of the Tyrol. The Italian army is better than is gencially be lieved; the volunteers are the weakest part of tho army. Garibaldi is still suffering from his wound received at Aspromontr-, and H is pro bable that this will be the last campaign of Guiseppe Garibaldi. TACITURNITY OF NAPOLEON III. Our army, to be sure, is still on a peace foot ing, but our peace footing is very lise the war footing of other nations. Our fleet is ready for every emergency. The head of our Govern ment, before risking an inch, wishes to be well prepared both on land and at sea. This unde cided attitude of Napoleon III very much pro vokes the war party round about him, of which Prince Napoleon, it is kaown, is the leader. They observe that we are losing the best oppor tunity of making a lasting ally of Prussia, and getting tho borders of the Rhine, which are so necessary to us. In fact, says the war party, if we wait until the Prussians are beaten, to intervene, and the Austrian troops are triumph ant, our influence will be diminished in Ger many. If, on the other hand, the Prussians are victorious without our aid, it is not likely that they will quietly give up the Rhenish provinces. I think the Emperor would have taken some decisive step had it not been for THE ATTITUDE OF RUSSIA AND ENGLAND. Russia, more than any other country, gives cur Emperor much anxiety. After much hesi tation, the Cabinet of St. Petersburg, notwith standing its professions of attentive neutrality, seems more or less inclined to go a little fur ther. Should France take a step, Russia will take two. On the other hand, the defeat of the Gladstone Jlinibtry in England may be the means of changing things on the other side of the Chau Eel. We may be said to be dancing oa a vol cano. There are Ave millions ot armed men in Europe at the present moment. In the midst of this imbroglio home matters are en tirely neglected. The "Corps Legislatif" If quite unheeded, and they can go on discussing the budget without let or hindrance. The clever speeches of the radical orator, Jnlei Favre, are sweetness wasted on the desert air. Tho evening newspapers are caught up with avidity. The Government has given orders 10 the unstamped press not to make any mention f any military result coming irom Germany. "EIGHT MONTHS IN AMERICA." We have now little time to devote to either literature or tLe drama. However, there is a new book on the United States, by M, Duvergier de Lausanne, one of those who contributed to the fall of the house of Orleans. It is curious to see with what acri mony this author speaks of the republican instl tutions of the United States. He seems to think that there is too much liberty in the land of the "Stars and Stripes." Still, Mr. Duvergier calls kiuisell a liberal ! This is the onjy literary work 1 have to mention. THE MATH OF MEET. Our celebrated poet, novel writer, a ad imprO' tsiautore.the author of to many charming novels, "Hera," "La Florida, ' and "La Guerre du Hlzam," is no more. He expired a lew days o, at the age of sixty-eight, llery. born at Marseilles, could not live out of the sun's rays. Whenever Sol showed himself oa the boule vards Mery was sure to be there, basking in the una) d;rkDg at the Qafe de Mafria and charming all those around bim by his witty and lively sallies, ne knew everybody: in eight days he will most likely be forgotten I Bio trantit gloria mundi. TUB DtJEB DB CHArlTBBS AND THE ITALIAN ARMY. A week ago the brother of one of the pretend ers to the French throne demanded to oe ad mitted to take a part in the coming war, in the army of Victor Emanuel; but his Royal High ness had, during the war of 18.r9, suddenly thrown up his commission in tho Italian armv at the time that Cialdinl invaded the Pontifical territory. He has been met with a refusal. I hear it is Prince Napoleon who has secretly intrigued against the Pnncc. DION BOUCICACLT IN PARIS. All those who take an Interest in theatricals in Paris have, for some time, been looking tor- ward to the performance of Dion Boucicault's Arrah-na-Pogue, entitled here Jean la Postr, which has taken tho town by storm, as it is found, as regards plot aud scenery, very supe rior to the pieces we have had of late. LADIES FASHIONS. The bonnet, which has for some time been diminishing to nothing, is a thing of the past. What is now worn on the head by our Parislennes is about the size and the shape of a piece of note paper, and looks very much like the head-dress of a Roman woman, but on a smaller scale; there are no longer any strings worn, as formerly; long ribbons are worn, hanging down be back, aud are called by the street boys, 'Follow-me-home, sirs." LETTER ER03I WISCONSIN7. Lake Pepin "l.over E,eap" Flatting and other bporls t'nro fr;iypepl, Kir. Kte. BVEMNO TELEGRAPH SPECIAL CORRESPONDENCE Maiden Rock, Wis., June 2K, 18CG. The place from which I write is a village on the Wisconsin side of Lake Pepin, four miles above the noted rock known as ' Lover's Leap," where, as the legend runs, Weuona, daughter of a Chippewa chief, made a Sam Patch lump over the precipice, and perished in the lake beneath, rather than keep house and hoe corn for an old Chippewa bruiser, who by command of the cruel parent was "camping on her trail." The rock now a perpendicular ledge of one hundred and Feventy-tive feet. Its base is about two hundred feet above the level ot the lake, the intervening space bi-ing a timbered slope of twenty or thirty rous. From this it will be seen that the maiden must have got up and run for he water, after taking her sprightly leap, or else there must be an inaccuracy of btate ment in the legend. The rock itself is prominent object on the lake. It is visible from almost all points of the steamboat channel, and, together with the sur rounding scenery, is an object of attraction to tourists. Standing upon its summit, as near the edge as one dares to go, you would think a stone might be tossed into the water, which seems to be right below. Try it, and then peer over to watch the missile go down, and you will see it go through tho tree-tops, pernaps not half way to the lake. Such is the illusion produced by the dizzy height and the conformation of the bluff. We saw a couple ot artists sketching tho rock from the beach. They were under cotton umbrellus, Hanked by the trunks and roots of a fallen tree. Want of time forbade us from ap proaching and inquiring who they were, but we trust they will bring out their pictures where the public can get a good idea of this de lightful lake. But to enjoy this country In its fulness oiip must go there and stay awhile. You can make headquarters at Lake City, and cross over in a sail-boat, skiff, or the lake packet. At Maiden Rock village there la a public house kept by dipt. Doughty, an experienced sailor, who runs a tino yacht for the pleasure ot his guests. Tue hospitality of a friend prevented me from try ing the Captain's fare, but I reckon a stranger will be made welcome ' in thoso parts" fur nished with a clean bed and good cheer. I saw tho saddle of a fat deer carried to the Cap tain's, and one will bo pretty sure to see upsn his table the most delicious ef game aud fish, in cluding the speckled trout. The Wisconsin side of Lake Pepin is mainly timbered land. Here is all the good trout fish iug, the best deer hunting, and the camping grounds of the general sportsman. The writer camped a few days on Rush river, a dozen miles back from Maiden Rock. This Is truly a splendid trout steam. It is from two to four rods.wide; has plenty of good, long ripples, with deep and surging pools below; plenty of tasting room, and plenty of trout. The fisher men can secure good quarters with the settlers along the creek, who furnish the best of wood man's iare, and are very kind to those who ceme to enjoy the trouting and the cool shades of the big woods. They are death on "pot fishers," despise a man who will sell a trout, and are very caieful to protect the lish during the spawning season. it is a pleasure to sportsmen to go among such people, and has but one alloy, namely the very small amount! of current funds you can make them accept for the excellent fare and kind attentions with which they serve you. I have but one iault to find with them, and that if, that in spearing on the river at night with firelight, in quest of coarser fish that make up irom the lake, and lay in long, still pools, I am afraid they do not always resist the tempta lion to throw the spear at a very biff trout, if they find one in bad company. I hope, If any oi them have done this, they will sternly resolve to do it lo more. The trout can be pro tected in Rush river for all time, by cultivating a proper understanding between settlers and sportsmen; audi will vouch for the conduct of the latter if the settlers will agree that the big trout shall henceforth be the prize of him, and him only, who can catch him by fair mean?. There are trout in this stream that weigh four or five pounds, andean be caught occasionally by careful work. The writer was rather pressed (or time, and fished too fast to rind the largest Ho captsred one two-pounder, aui several that weighed a pound each and over; one lot of twenty weighed fifteen pounds, Hid best fishing was on Tuesday, the 28th, when, with a woodman friend to carry the fish and the landing net, he filled a twenty-four pound basket in about half-a-dsy. There were fifty-one trout a very goid average, as any trout-flsher can testify. - ! It is glorious sport to stand at the foot of one of the rapids of -Rush river, and casting a long and light line Into the surging pool below, to sea the gleam of the teauUfni trout as he darts , ' .1 irom his cover and takes jour hook npon the surface, almost as soon as your line lights on the water. Down ha goes towards his lavorite cover, under sosae projecting bush or loir, or by some overhanging or bottom rock, to enjoy his prize. lour line tightens, and you strike home. Ten to one he has been In the same scrape before, and has learned tho proper tactics in many a pitched battle with the same sort of foe. Ho knows his danger, but Is never frightened out of his wits. One or two stont jerks by way of feelers, and If he finds himself fast hooked, now come the "evolutions ot the Jiw," and the prar.d charges and skilful retreats, and the high acrobatic feats that make the brook trout famous among nsneimen over all others 01 me finnv tribe. Now he darts to the centre of the pool, and lumps clear out of water, ehaRing htmseit witn an nis mignt to untix the lalai oaru; now dives, and enmos up again, makes tor the roughest, swiftest water, and turns a dozen summersaults. This is the critical point, and you must fctve him line, or his tierce )ump3 will reaK your lacnie or iear out me hook, lie inai-s advantage ot it in an instant, and darts tor the nearest bush or root, or Bonie old tree-top under water, if he can find one, knowing well that if he can hitch lis line he can disengage the book reiorc the Black can be recovered. But your reel has rapidly tautened him up again, and the chief danger is past. Perhaps, alter one or two mote fierce runs about the pool, in which you give biru gently all tlie hue he wants, he will give it up, and come quietly to the net. But don't De deceived. He may have other tricits to try. Zip goes the line aeain, ana you see him charge ftraight at you. You cannot take up your line, perhaps, last enough to tauten on this new mauduvre, and the first you now, if you are standing tn pretty deep, swift water, where you cannot step quickly without mis-iing Your footinc, and going under vourselt. fish- basket, tackle, trour, and all, he has wound the line around your trousers' leg, got off the hook, and bid you good-by with a suap of his tail as he vihifks down the current. Perhaps, having tried all points of the pool, ho leaves it, coes by you like a stream, and darts up the rapids: and while von turn him around and endeavor to hold him, he cuts a flourish at every twig or rock along shore wheie he could pwsioi.y tie the line. ' Bat, the fame is up. Acknowledges that he has had a lair chance, he yields as gracefully as he fought bravely, and allows hitnselt to be reeled in, and lifted home with the landirg net, witn nothing more than a nop ot his tail tj (-how his satisiactiou at being clearly taken by fair means. II he is a half-pound trout or larger, you can feast jour eyes now on the handsomest ot all God's creatures, with oue exception, which will in stantly recur to the fisherman, tor it has been truly f aid that he that loves no: one loves not the other. There are manv slips between the bite and the basket in trout fishins. The tackle must be tine in well-tished streams, or the trout will lay close and laueh at your clumsy cheats, and only the gentlest play will prevent the laree ones Irom smashing things. Oiten the book is not well taken, and slips out alter one or two jumps or lounges, and in many places the fish will unci a dozen means to cicar nimseit in spite of all you can do. With the best ot tirhing more than half the bites are lont, and it is this uncer tainty that puts the angler always on his best behavior, and gives excitement and zest to the sport. ut course tno ny is too nnesx means 01 catcn ing trout in the proper seasou lor fly fishing, but theie are baits that aie lust as lair and re quire lust as fine work, and will catch as many antt larger trout. In lact, in a stream well sup plied witn natural lood for trout, the successiul bshernian must not oniy use diiii, dui must change his kind ot bait ottcn during the day, to suit their varjlng aDd delicate notions ot "good victuaU." The writer went to Rush river lully determined and, as he thought, well prepared to lelv mainlv on the flv. Ills flics, ho-vever. proved worthless, having been got up to sell, ami not to resemble any uauirai ny, at leaot in those waters, and lie was obliged to resort to bait. His favorite bait is got up as follows: Take a small trout, and with a sharp knife, slit down the ventral tin near the middle, and cut neatly, with a slight curve, a light, loug bait Irom thence through the edue of the tad. Hook ou the bait near the piece ot liu, not through the tin, but on one side of it, so as to leave it free to plav iu the water, aud you have a bait that, it well handled, is more nearly like a min now, in the e; e ot a trout, than any other. It has this special advantage, it lasts well and does not require to be ''doctored" often. It plays finely on a rapid rr.otion, aud sets the fish daiting lor it irom all points, and wher you suspect a big trout is lying well under a bunk, rock, or a lot 01 floodwood, and is too lazy 10 come out and rise for you, von can put on a heavy sinker and let it down with almost a cer tuiuty that its tishy look will amuse him, aud that tie will niako for it with avidity, however cluui&ily it is handled. When this bait will not answer, cut a t-uniliir and darker one from the little ornamental tin on the back ot the fish, lust behind the dorsal, taking the whole of the little tin, however, and 6litting through the tail as belore. When they will take neither oi these bans, vthich is very seldom, the grasshopper or some fly or worm must be found. 1 recommend Rush river to any one who wants a good place to go to for wild sports during the fishing or hunting Beaton. It ladies are iu the party, they can Hnd good amusement about Lake City or Maideu Rock. Plenty of pleasant dnveo, gi'Od boatiLg. aud deli.alitful places to lamble about the blutls, or ride or drive along the beautiful prairies and groves on the Minnesota side, or the valley of Rush river on the other. Take tho cars tor La Crosse, aud thence go up by one of the splendid steamers of the Upper Mississippi. I must not close without refcrrlns to my friend Mr. llieks, who took care ot me while ou Kock river. He has a "clearing" and a good lo house at the very point on the fishing ground where one wants' to make headquarters, and whether you camp out or take quarters with him, will 00 everything to make jou enjoy the lishiug. The pleasant voice ot the river pouring its endless current ot laughing waters by his door was sweeter music to my oar than the tones of birds. Piven the Marine Band, that discourses such de liebtlul melodies alternately at the Capitol aud White House ends of tho avenue at Washington, bringing out w hat chords ol hurmonv it may be tween the Executive ano the Legisla'ive halls, would have been hushed in admiration there. The trout are Mr. Hicks' pets, and they gather on the ripples right by bis door, waiting to be "called to breakfast." Wheuever a guest wants them, they are called, "you bet." It one can find bettor food than these, together with tue nicest venison, sweet milk, thut seems all cream to one who has been supplied from a city milk wagon, winter wheat bread, a white os snow, and delicious maple syrup, clear aud amber hucd, with variouM kinds of wild fruits, fresh picked, or canned in tneir season, all prcpured by a neat housewife's hund, "when found, make a note ci it," for the writer's bouetit. But it can't be done. Mr. Green aud. Mr. Harris, also, at Maiden Rock village, gave tho writer valuable asmtance in coining at the points of interest about the lake. They are old settlers, aud the former pioved a Qrst-iaie guide and companion !r a ramble at the rock. In fact, any oue, friend or strangpr, can land at this place and be sure of genuine friendliness and hospitality ou all hands.
