Palikao, the Minuter of War, took the floor, and, in reaponse to an inquiry, made an explanation relative to the fact of Gem. Trecha being d-Mlared Governor of Pam. The Government regarded it as a wise movement, he sud, to confide the defense of the city of Paris to a person eminently qualified to in? crease the Bocurity of peace in the minds of the cit i/cns. Gen. Tro? hu will be replaced in the command of his corps. (The reeerre? were formerly under his command.) The Count de Palikao then informed the Corpo that it was ceri ai n the Prniwians had mffered ssvere?ly in the lato engagements. Their center had been es? pecially crippled. They had tried to retreat to St. Michael, but were not able to effect a junction with the Prinr-6 Royal. The entire Regiment of White Cuirassiers, under the command of Count Von Bis? marck, was totally destroyed near rkhlettstadt. The French peasants attacked a detachment of Prnssian dragoons, and made them prisoners. The Count then dwelt upon the fact that a dispatch from ..russels, emanating from a Prussian source, made no mention of those French victories.

The special correspondent of The Thihcm* at the boaaOjaOBSOB. of the Cmwh Prince ?ai it? ? on the E-thmst: "Tlie more we gather of the details of the battle of Worth, the more clearly does it appear that there was no miracle about the affair-no sud? den surprise as though a new weapon had b?-?n dis ?covered. From the villikger. in the rear of the field I gather far more of the French movements than can lie learned from the prisoners or the villagers on the held itself. " It w?mill neem that the Imperial commanders in this quarter were altogether oiitmaneiivered hythe Crown I'rince, and that whatever the merit? of the n-spective small-arms, the t?ctica of the two armies will not War comparison. ?Some say even now that the ?-hasanpot is a better rifle than the necuMe-gun ; but be that as it may, the French allowed themselves to be bo placed as to have re?iiiired no common amount of righting to save them at all. First we hear of their blind confidence, and of their cries of "?i Rerlin,' while they were-really in desperate danger. Then came the news of the surprise at Wcis HTilmrg, and of the death of Gen. Douay. He was postod in a corner of the French territory, with a mass of German troop? collected on both his flanks, and waa much further from his supports than prudence warranted in the fivce of such an enemy. It can Batta l??i known whether the French com? mander would have extricated his men with less loss than they actually sustained had he lived to din .t them, for he lal by oue of the first tlischarges of artillery. "Thus was a step gained by the Germans. They had gallantly stormed the position at Weisw-nliurg and had begun to -hatter the enemy in detail. Ma. - .Million and Do Failly were now called on to act. The former marched against the Crown Prince with his whole corp? darin.1?-, and, as wa? believed among the l-'iciich soldiers, expectaod Do Failly to support his left in cae?- of a che? k. Here again wa.? the impetu? ous over-conrJd.'ii.a which Fr? in limen are apt to show. The second opportunity of meeting them in d. tail wikri given to the Germans, and a bloody.battle was the r. ?ult. "The Prussians and Bavarians together far out? numbered the corjm of Mac.Mahon. We may esti? mate that tin? Ciovvn I'micc had at least half au many again of disposable troops on Aug. (5 as his opponents. I hav?- heard twelve to seven mentioned a? the odds m the tight at Worth, and before Mac.Ma? hon had BSSB bag engaged, he was send in if iiide?-<h . ?imp t.? beg h? lp from De Failly. Tlie distance was net great t<> Hit? he. and the messages must have arrived in tim?, to bring the misled help, if only evcr> thing had been in readiness. Hut here again over conlidence ha?l prevailed. One French con? VVi*', destroyed Is-foro the other cam? to it? support. I have heard that on Sunday, the day following the battle, a large force was ?rlsmt in the nar of where MacMahon had fought. People who saw it t.ll with wonder of the rush of the hoOSSB army westward, and the advance of angry anil almost incredulous troop* toward the front. It was too late to renew the battle, too late to save the tive regiment? which lay strewn over the fields at Worth. The mon-fdtisperate their resistance, the more tiny had Ims-ii slaughlered ; and at ihe last there had hOSS a sort of pani,. " Frenchmen are bad hands at retreating after a defeat. It seem? certkiu that the fugitives from Worth were in great disord?-r, even when passing through villages ten mile? in the rear. The Corps <>f I ?. Failly could only have sa?-rili?-e?l itself uselessly when one.- MacMahon? soldiers hail been demoral i/i ti. To have foiigh! a second battle of Worth would have been to play into the hands of the Crown Trine?, who would have lik?*d nothing bett? r than b> engage the whole French army in detail and lieat them consecutively. ' He is the better general who ha? the largi-r force preaent in the nick of time.' " Franc? is uot properly fortified for a war with united Germany. These little places which hold a few hundred men, and did well enough in old times, are useless against modern ?arti?ery. There is, for instance, an anci?-nt fortress among wood-covered hills, a quaint, picture?<iue stronghold ol Alsace, called'La Petite Pierre' [in the V?>sge? Mountains, eight miles N.N.W. of Savenie). Once it wa? much e?t?.-eme<l a? 0 cheek to an invader coming through the V(-sges, but now it ia abandoned without firing a shot. The black and white colors of Prussia wave over the citadel, and a quantity of military store* were captured therein. It was not ready for de? fense when the Prussians came. The outer and more important work was nnfini*b?*d. Therefore La Petite Pierre was abandoned, to the irrest relief of it? inhabitant?, who had f?i-ared destruotion, and the Prussians quietly marched on. Now if a atrong fort, say an iron-clad tower, had l>oen upon this hill, the ('roan Prince would have required heavy guns against it. I do not mean to say that any mere fort by a roadside would hinder the tienuan invasion, bnt j this little fortress of La Petite Pierre, among it? wood-covere?l hills, illustrativ two points of the Frenchmen's unreadiness? the fort wa* ?.Id fash? ioned ?id insufficient, and it wss not aiuipped for defense. ?The ntoveiaent of troops is incessant, though no one ia tohl whither they ??? to*0*, -?-O'? with each advam* tri* Prussians bring forwas?! th.a, li.dd-post and t!*ir imiilary tolegrapk A mure pvafeot ?igaiu utuou it i* diihuilt to ima*-"*'* T*>*e tIil1??' ?* V? visions creep like great serperits <?v*r the .-ouutrv.

The whole country is on the move, A regiment of cayalry goes by with infinite jingling of harness and clattering of lioofa. Now the bayoneta of the infantry shine oat among the treea or there ia an interminable train of guns dragged past. I fancy that the villagers ar? simply astounded at what they see, and imagine that all Germany is upon them. "The soldiers, laughing, tell of the other two gnat annie*, whick ?are invading France. The Fatherland is quite safe. The war baa searc-ely troubled a single Herman y i llago?not ona in this part of the Une?and rain aa it may, the men ?are thoroughly ehe?*rful."

I armed just in time to stop three wretched Turcos, mounted on artillery horse?, a? they were entering an old quarry with the hope of making a short cut from the fleld Oar artillery must have been roughly used, so many r,lissons paita along the road without guns. But here conic one or two regiments of the line quite linn, tol? erably complete in numbers, rifle on shoulder, and knapsack on back. Behind them Marshal Mc Mahou, ??aim, dignified, almost smiling, and fresh tux a rose. I salute him as he passes. He responds without noticing me. One of bia aida, M. d'Altac, name? me. Then the old hero stops, and tells me quite simply the story of his defeat, thoa: 'I had only 3.5,000 men, and I found LW.OOO in front of me. We have given way before numbers. They havo kill?*d or wounded about 5,000 men. But we shall havo our revenge. Explain this to the public. But where an? you going in that direc? tion V ' To Savenie,' I reply. ' You will ho cap? tured. The Prussians will bo there iu two hours," says the General. 'I havo my wife and children there,' I answer. ' dod preserve you. Do not fail to say that the morale of tho troop?, i? exc?:llent." We shake hands. " 1 exchange a few pleasant words with M. d'Alza?, and I search vainly in the ranks of the staff a? it move? on for the laughing and kindly face of M. de Vogue, ofbcer of 4irdnance. This line young man, fidl of promi??-?, was killed by a luillet through the forehead, and (Jen. Colson with a bullet through the heart. Both of them were struck down by the ?ide of the Marshal, who was r?v?kl?r*_B of his Ufe. I-ast com?*? a regiment of Turcos, the moat complete and tinest of tho three These fellows have not thrown away their knapsacks nor their arms. One of the first conns out of the ranks and clasp? me around the neck. It is Albert Dury, a fellow journalist, and the excellent fellow begins by telling me : I have been to your house; it is empty. All your people are safe but you. I, as you see am firm aa a post. Oh, my poor friends! What a disaster. We will repair it, though. He runs off and disappears in the motley crowd of his com au les. A little further on I saw a civilian dressed in a short coat of grey velvet, who marches like au officer between two ?impunies of the line. It is M. (?uildran, the artist of the Illxutration, an old friend of the day before yesterday. Ile carries hi? portefolio across his back, and to-morrow morning at Pfazbiirg he will, no doubt, make a sketch of this shameful retreat. "At the gates of the Faverne the panic stricken are flyingalong the railway orare hitling in the gardens; but some gootl regiments of the line are tramping in Btei?s through the street?. Their passage, calm and courageous, is not over before 11 o'clock at night. These last lielong to the Fifth Corps. They rea4?h?*d Kei.'hahofien too late to give battle. I thnl the little town a prey to a panic really fabulous. Marshal MacMahon arrived there on Saturday night at 11 o'clock, followe?! hythe remains of his army, and preceded by a swann of breathless fugitive?. In the twinkling of an eye ?Saverne saw itself filled with the First C.>n>s, which the fi>e luckily believed to havo retired upon Bit? he.

The night was passed in iVrror. If the enemy had known how to profit by the opportunity, he might have made 10,000 or IS, 000 prisoners at one blow. The population was only half reassured by the presence of troops broken down, starve?!, and discomlited. ?Some families got off by the mail train at midday, tbe last that went from Strasburg." Yesterday (?-?linday, the 7th August), at 6 oYlock, upon I know not what false alarm?perhaps only be? cause three or f?>nr scouts of the enemy were an? nounced on the side of Steinburg-?tho Duke ?le Magenta caused the " Generate" to be iVaten, and Sa vi me thought itself lost, while officers and soldiers threw themselves pell-mell upon tho Pfal/l.urg road. Tlin-e-fourths of the people went oft' wildly toward the neighboring forests. A sail example was s?>t by the gen? tJamtejt an?l the ?argent de ville. The townsfolk closed their shops and piled np their fur? niture upon carts. ?Some of the farmers drove their cnttie katoa them, as in tho time of Abraham. There were incredible accumulations, formed both of men and animals, in the bon??1? of the fort??ters and in the ruins of the old castles. This morning all is calm in the town; or, to speak more accurately, all is deail there?. Th?? invasion is <???'?< ? t?-d from ??ni1 moment to another, and noone dreams of defense against the 150,000 men of the Prince Royd. The Mayor invite? the baker?? and botaban ta reopen their shops. A few ?levoteil men and some brave women divide themselves between tara ambulances, oi which one is at the Hospital and the other at the Asile lmp?rial. There remain only 60 woundetl or so. One hundred and sixty have been sent on to ?Saarhi-rg. Alnnstt all the Zouaves and Turcos made their escape last night, fearing to l?e murdered by the Prussians. How they have l?een able to drag themselvce as far as Pfalzburg, being in such a state as they were in, 1 scarcely know. They must have stolen horses and carriage?.
