THE DAILY EVENING TELEGRAPH PHILADELPHIA, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 13, 1870.
nnwfl nurvmiAng. IUt A ITnlro. The Young Men's Christian Association, through the liberality of the basin ess men of Philadelphia, will open to-morrow morning, for the rise of young men of Philadelphia, a new library of five thousand volumes, includ ing the latest publications in all departments of literature, history, travels, and religion. Arrangements havo been perfected by which tie students of the Woman's Medical Hospital, situated on College avenue, above Ridge road, can attend the medical lectures at the Pennsylvania Hospital daring the present month, and it may be for a longer time. The dog pound will be removed on next Monday from its present location on Corin thian avenue, in the Fifteenth ward, to the sew location on the Lamb Tavern road, near the City Hospital. About midnight on Tuesday, a disturb ance occurred at Washington avenue and Twentieth street, between a number of young men. Pistols were fired, and unfortunately one of the balls took effect in the abdomen of George Firth, aged 1(5 years, who was standing on the sidewalk, and not partici pating in the fight. The wound is considered a dangerous one by the physician at the hos pital, where Firth now is. His residence is at No. 2130 Alter street. Charles Lutz, employed in the bakery at No. 1343 South street, was accidentally shot by a pistol in the foot yesterday morning, by a fellow-workman. The proprietor of the bakery had left a pistol in the cellar, and while one of the workmen was handling it the load was discharged, inflicting a painful wound. The injured man was taken to the Pennsyl vania Hospital. The Board of City Trusts held a stated meeting yesterday afternoon. Sixty ad ditional pupils were admitted into the Oirard College, 14 of whom were born in the old city limits, and forty-six in other parts of Penn sylvania. This increases the population of the house to r0 pupils. A resolution was passed "that hereafter when orphans reside too far from the city to make their per sonal presence convenient, the applicant may appear before a judge of the county in which he resides, or a justice of the peace, and through their certificate, upon a printed form to be furnished by the College for that purpose, the name of such child to be placed upon the record." Authority was given for the Cadets of the College, to the number of 150, and the College Band, to join in the. nutting excur sion of the children of the public schools at the Park, on the 21st instant. A culvert was authorized to be built under the interme diate street between Chesnut and Girard streets, and extending from Eleventh to Twelfth street. Six of the eight houses now being built at Sixth and Brown streets were reported to have been leased. The resigna tion of Professor F. A. Bregy, teacher of French and Spanish in Girard College, to take effect on the 31st of December, was re ceived. Dr. Ernest Goodman was elected Assistant Surgeon in the Wills Hospital, in place of Dr. Allen. Last night, between C and 7 o'clock, a fire bro'ie out in the large saw and planing mill of Mr. Daniel Maguire, N. W. corner of Ridge avenue and College avenue, which was attended with considerable loss. The flames originated in the cellar of tho building, and soon made such headway as to render it almost impossible to check them. The alarm box in the immediate neighborhood being out of order, the firemen were prevented from being early on the ground, and when they did come the entire building was in flames. It was quite a spacious one, over 100 feet long on College avenue, with a frontage of some 40 feet on Ridge avenue. It was shaped something in the form of the letter L; was four stories high, and stored with valuable machinery and materials. Domestic Affairs. Gold closed yesterday at 113. General Frank P. Blair has received the Democratic nomination for the lower House of the Missouri Legislature. The anniversaries of the Free Baptist Benevolent Societies of New England com menced in Augusta, Me., on Tuesday evening. Tnn war. LAST NIQHT'S DESPATCHES. THE BATTLE NEAB ORLEANS FIRST REPORTS CONTRADICTED A COMPLETE PRUSSIAN VIC TORY THE FRENCH ABANDON THE CITV ACTIVE MOVEMENT OF TROOPS. Tours, Oct. 12. Messengers who were sent to Orleans yesterday, where a battle was going on, have returned. They make the following report: The French were Jin much smaller force than the Prussians, and were literally crushed by their superior artil lery, and driven back into the suburbs of the town. Some barricades had been erected there, and our forces took advantage of the shelter these afforded. The Papal Zouaves and Mobiles behaved most courageously, but the regular troops fled at almost the first fire. None of the regular troops made much resistance; many threw away their arms in their flight. The Prussians opened fire on the town after the French defeat, and owing to the barricades many fires occurred. The railway depot was destroyed in this way, as well as many other large establishments. At last accounts the people of fcyons were flying in all directions. At a late hour last evening the Prussians had pushed Bouth to Beaugency and Mean, beyond Paris, and it is feared that the Papal Zouaves will be sur rounded and captured. The other French troops in that neighborhood are in good position, and heavy reinforcements were sent forward to them during the night. It is re ported that some heavy guns have also gone forward from Bourges. The French troops at Beaugency and Meun are excellent. They are composed chiefly of National Guards and Mobiles, and they are determined to resist to the last. In view of the urgency of the case, General Garibaldi left Tours this morning for the field. There is a great movement of frano-tireurs. Troops of all kinds are pushing to the front with all despatch. The government has repeated its determi nation to retaliate for all Prussian atrocities. If the municipal authorities of Ablis are exe cuted, an equal number of Prussian prisoners win ue snot. London, Oct. 12. The French fleet has been sighted off Heligoland. The authorities at Altona and other ports have been warned to remove outer buoys and lights of their harbors, to prevent surprise. The United States steamer Plymouth has arrived at Kiel, though that port is ostensibly closed by blockaders. Other American men- of-war are expected there. Tours, Oct. 12. Official reports from ' Beaugency state that the Prussians entered Orleans last night. J. he French forces are on the left bank of the Loire. They received to-day heavy reinforcements, including tea Iptterien nf re! 1 artillery. No news has been received from Paris to day. A balloon expedition is preparing here for an attempt to descend into Paris. Signor Tinppoli, Grand Master of the Free Masons of Italy, who is to superintend the organization of Italian volunteers, has arrived in Tours. Gambetta has given orders, that complete returns of the armed forces of France be made to his department. He has also sent a num ber of young, energetic men into the pro vinces to organize military movements, but with instructions not to meddle with politics. The journals Gazeltede France and V Union publish an anti-republican address from Count de Chambord to the people of France. The Government denies the report that Count Palikao has been asked to resume com mand of the army at Lyons. The Moniteur to-day prints a letter of thanks from Gambetta to the Americans, May and Reynolds, who presented to the Govern ment the balloon in which they escaped from Paris. Florence, Oct. 12. Lieutenant-General La Marmora entered Home yesterday, and was received with hearty demonstrations of welcome by the people. Brussels, Oct., 12. The report that the Prussian Minister at Brussels had been re called, which has been lately extensively pub lished, is untrue. An enthusiastic meeting was held at Mech lin yesterday to protest against the deposition of the Pope. The Archbishop of Mechlin presided, and among the participants in the proceedings were the Archbishops of Buffalo and Calcutta. The protest was unanimously adopted. PARIS. How the Great City la to be Treated. The Zeitller (German) Cirrexpotidence writes as follows: Ever nearer draws the time when the question will be put categori cally to the city of Prris whether it chooses to be treated as an open town or a fortross. Unfortunately the people of Paris have not yet, as it seems, become fully conscious of the importance or this question. They seem not only to be possessed with the illusion that they can be treated as the inhabitants of a half fortress, half open town, nay single corporations, as for example the academy, even go so far as to claim for themselves severally an exceptional position. If the city of Paris holds fast to her part as a fortress, then shn must be prepared to share the fata of Stras burg, and, in fact, to bury her defenders under her ruins. It is impossible that the German armies should not take Paris, and it is just as impossible that we should love the houses of Paris better than the blood of our soldiers. As we learn from trustworthy sources, the heavy siege train is already on its way to Paris. It even appears that we shall neither take the walls of Paris, nor M. Rochefort's barricades, by storm; but we shall only back the language of reason and of hunger by the very impressive speech of German artillery. A German who escaped from Paris on the 14th nit., in a letter to the Berlin Cross Gazette says: Who now rules in Paris it is hard to say. Certainly neither Trschu nor the Provisional Government, with Jules r avre and Kochefort: neither the National Guards nor the "Red" Communists, although, indeed, the latter take the lead. The men who still nominally exercise authority are influenced by the sav age masses, and if perchance two tolerably numerous crowds should assemble before the Hotel de Ville who wanted some change, the desires of the mob which clamored the loudest and was the most audacious would be acceded to. The National Guard are not altogether inclined for war, and many of my French acquaintances assured me in con fidence that it was impossible for Paris to hold out long. One of the greatest dangers has not presented itself, viz., the Beds, as they do do not feel themselves strong enough to imi tate their Lyons brethren. When, however, the struggle before the walls has once com menced, and when want and privation appear, the parties within the city will begin their strifes, in spite of all conciliatory efforts. Whatever may be said, even though the pre sent government should deceive the people as grossly as the empire did, Paris is scarcely provisioned for two or three weeks. Thou sands and thousands have left the city, but strange Mobile Guards and the inhabitants of the surrounding districts within ten or twelve miles have eoine in, so that tho popu lation still numbers about two millions. It is true that in the Jardin des Plantes there are a multitude of sheep, but there really are 120,000 for which in a few days there will be no more food; they will be devoured by two millions of people in three days. So with the oxen in the Bois de Boulogne, which obviously, unless they are previously starved, will only meet the normal demand for beef for a few days. Already the daily demand for salt, fuel, milk, vegetables, and especially lighting materials, cannot be satisfied. Paris without gas, without sufficient oil and tallow, without lamps, without newspapers (for paper is lacking), without news from without, Paris the frivolous, pleasure-seeking, enjoyable, exposed to privations of all kinds, is no longer Paris. It is a Sparta, but inhabited not by Spartans but by luxurious Corinthians, or rather, looking to the much-used expres sion, "Seine Babal," by Babylonians. The country round Paris, according to other reports, is also in a lamentable condi tion, all means of earning a living being cut off from the remaining population. A letter from St. Maur, in the Cologne Gazette, says the priests go about with troops of laboring men to seek bread. Several of these unfor tunates have for days had no nourishment, and beg at the German outposts, or devour raw vegetables. The peasants say fearful agitation prevails in Paris, that a guillotine has been erected, and that terrorism has set in. This is of course an exaggeration, bat it shows the alarm and panic which exist. A letter from Corbeil says weeping women and children are everywhere to be seen, all means of subsistence having been sent to Paris. The same is the . case in the entire neigh borhood. XOTES OF THE WAR. "DYING IN THE LAST DITCH." The London 7w points out that the wise resolution by which the heroic- garrison of Strasburg concluded their memorable defense ought to be a lesson to France and to her Dresent Government, tracing out the limits beyond which resistance ceases to be a duty and hnnma a follv and a crime. General Uhrich and the soldiers and citizens under' his orders did all that could be expected of men all that true patriotism and military honor could demand; but tney stopped short of any unavailing deed of despair. The alternative lay between a capitulation and a butchery. The brave men chose the better part. Their honor was safe, and they could i ny be said ot Tou); tue same, we hear, of Montmedy. Those who really knew bow to fight knew also when to yield. thb spoils. The StaaU Anzeiger publishes the follow ing account of the capture of men and mate rial by the German armies since the begin ning of the wpr: Tie losses of the enemy and the prizes of the German armies in the present campaign, not yet pf two months duration, exclasive of killed and wound n, are: One marshal, 3'J generals, 32.r(5 officers, 104,750 men, and 14,000 wounded in Sedan; 10,280 horses, at least rG eagles,102 mitrailleuses. G!0 field and fortress guns, over 400 standards, several pontoons, magazines, railway trains; also an almost innumerable mass of arms, munitions, dress and equipment articles, forage and provisions. To this enormous total the prizes taken at Toul and Strasburg have now to be added. THE SURRENDER OF 8TRASBURO. The Lendon Daily Neicn says: The great French fortress has fallen, and the fast friends of France need not be sorry that its resistance is at an end. Its gallant defenders bad discharged their duty. If the people of every town in France had done as much ac cording to their means as the citizens of Strasburg, if every military body in France bad exhibited the steady endurance of its garrison, a German host would not at this moment encompass the capital, and Paris would not look in vain for an army to succor and relieve her. Well have they borne their share in the burdens of the war, and it was time for them to decline a contest that had become hopeless. In the name of humanity we may rejoice that this siege . is over, and that it has ended in a surrender. Bismarck's policy. The Daily Ncxts observes that Count Bis marck is apparently resolved to fight it out upon bis present line if it lasts all the winter. Germany has deliberately counted the cost. She has weighed every ingredient of the pos sible sacrifice, and has calmly decided that it must be borne. The Neies confesses that it does not see any sufficient assurance that the French have made up their minds with equal deliberation and equal firmness. They seem rather to be drifting about for a principle and a policy. We cannot wonder if the Germans take into consideration the fact that their enemy is of fitful mood and apt to be blown about by every gust of sentiment or fortune, and feel bound to require practical guarantees ngainst the result of altered moods and sud utn counsels in their enemy. France refused the armistice because it seemed to involve unpalatable conditions of peace. Germany is only the more resolved not to conclude a peace which would have the essential attri butes of a mere armistice. THE ALLEGED PRUS8S AN OUTRAGES. Four English gentlemen, newspaper corre spondents and surgeons, who have followed the campaign from Forbach to Sedan, have sent home an explicit denial of the charges made against the German troops, in a letter of a Correspondent of the PaU Mali Gazette, as to outrages on women and the spoliation of property. The writers sav: "We feel bound to give the most unqualified contradiction to the statements of the writer in the PaU Mall Gazette. We have found want, suffering, and misery enough wherever we have turned, but we have never yet met, or even heard of, a single instance of personal violence offered to the peasantry, a single instance of outrage towards women, or a single instance in which a farm-house has been robbed of more than its stray fowls and fruit. Amid all the hor rors which have been going on around us, we talk among ourselves of the kindness, for bearance, and singular honesty with whioh, considering all the circumstances, the Prus sians have behaved towards the people and property of the towns and districts through wh ion they have passed. Independent tes timony to the same effect is quite conclusive on this subject. THE ACCIDENT AT MONT BLANC. Further Particular of the Disaster f Sep. lemoer o tt eeovery or tne uoaiea. A "Tourist" writes to the London Times of the 20th nit. regarding the late accident on Mont Blanc: Having recently visited Cha mouni, where I obtained information from the most reliable sources as to the recent loss of eleven persons on Mont Blano, the follow ing account may be valuable to persons con nected with the unfortunate travellers and to others. On the 5th of September, Dr. Bean, of Baltimore, another American gentleman, and Mr. George McCorkindale, of Scotland, accompanied by three guides and five porters, left Chamouni, and on the next day reached the summit; but before they bad pro ceeded far on their return a storm arose which caused apprehensions to the watchers below for the safety of the party', too well founded, for they were not seen again alive. As soon as possible an attempt was made to recover the bodies, which, owing to the unsettled weather, was unsuccessful, and it was feared that no effectual search would be practicable this year; but a favor able change occurring on the 17th, eighteen guides started, and, after a perilous effort, discovered on the following day the bodies of Dr. Bean, Mr. McCorkindale, and three porters, at a spot which appeared from below to be not far from the "Petits Mulets." With much labor and difficulty their remains were brought down to Chamouni on Monday, the l'.'th inst. Since I left Chamouni I have been informed that the remaining bodies have been found further down the mountain. A veteran guide, whose last ascent was with Mr. Freshtield, stated to me that the sufferings of the unhappy party must have been of short duration, as they could not have survived five minutes after being over taken by the hurricane, whioh suffocated them with snow. It is said that Dr. Bean left Ame rica for Switzerland on a scientific mission, but be seems to have been ill-prepared for the ascent. On the previous day he requested the landlord of the Hotel Mont Blano to send for a notary, and a will Veing drawn up he signed it. Mr. McCorkindale was starting, wearing an ordinary high-crowned hat, but the land lord induced him to put on a cap (with flaps to cover the ears) which he lent him. The guides demurred to making the ascent on aocount of the unsettled state of the weather, but, unfortunately, yielded to the wishes of the travellers. The landlord of the Hotel Mont Blanc stated that he had telegraphed to the American and English Consuls at Geneva, and received a reply from the for mer, but not from the latter, and Mr. Mc Corkindale having left no luggage, he was unable to communicate with that gentleman's relatives, he having given his address as "Scotland." A suggestion was made by a traveller that a telegram should be sent to the Frovost of Edinburgh, requesting him to trace the relations of the deceased and com municate the catastrophe to them. He had not left a passport or any papers at the hotel. - A college for the education of ladles for the medical protection ha reen dedicated with im- . .lB.L 1 citllii l.it i ul (.t.v.iii. il .a '.a Lei.ij,',a ' as the Woman's Hoeplul Medical College.
