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

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."

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

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

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

the many who have been benehtcd by their use.
The bathing exceeds anything I ever saw, aud
would bring tears of toy to the eyes of a hydro

shower baths ol medicated water. Those who
prefer it, can indulge in a warm bath.
The worthy host, A. W. Snyder, and his ami
able family are lavish of their hospitality, aud
