"Two shots from Fort St. Quentin have just

to cut off a detachment of ?500 Prussians encamped at
Moutigny, who attempted to cross the Moselle and
were ?seen from the fort? Moutigny is a mile and a
quarter distant from Met*. At 7 this morning two
Prussian cuiriwaiers entered that town; they were
followed by four others. Breakfast was served to
the six, and paid for. They promenaded the town
till 8 o'clock, and then withdrew, not only unnm

Pabis, Friday, Ang ia, tam
In the Corpa Logialiktif, last evening, like Count d?
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 remarks of the Minis?
ter were received enthusiastically by the Deputies.

London, Friday, Aug. 11, 1870.
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

side to side for many a mile. 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.

Urdmond About ?h-r-jilies the sceuea after tb? bat?
tle of Worth as follow? :
" One ?em solid regiment?, who proudly retreat,
while a few bad soldiers, disbanded, lost, demoral?
ized, and disarmed, throw themselves deeperat4*ly
into each by-path. 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. Tiley mt-rim*?! together where they could?
those mo?<t fortunate, in the houses of th. ir towns?
men; those who had brought away their knaps;u ks
and cuuip e?-uipage, under their tenta; many upon
the pavements ami in the fields under heaven's can?
opy. 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?.
Mine was retoveml this morning, at ti o'clock, per
fc? tly sound, from half-a-dozen stragglers, who hail
