Atpeauance of Toulouse After the Inundation-?A Town of Heins.?A Ton louse (June 23) telegram to the London Times says: Nothing can present a greater contrast than the North and South sides of the river ntToulouse?the one with its usual aspect undisturbed, and its inhabitants pursuing their ordinary vocations; the other, like a place which has been bom? barded. The Faubourg St. Cyprien is, in fact, a town of itself, and is to the upper part of Toulouse what tho Surrey side of tho Thames is to the Middlesex shore. The quarter is densely peopled, or rather had 25,000 inhabitants, most of them of the working classes, though out? side the town walls are villas and cottages belonging to wealthier people. Through the (pmrter run avenues of trees, and around it are fields of corn and market gardens; in short, under ordinary cir? cumstances, it must be a pleasant enough place to live in. To describe what St. Cyprien is now is almost impossible. It is a town of ruins. The Garonno is now running in its na? tural bed, but all over tho inundated quarter are pools of water and rank river mud; trees aro uprooted, gardens arc mero swamps, and streets half dried water courses, with here and there great cracks and yawning gaps. In some places the houses are heaps of rubbish, in others tho walls aro left standing, with pictures or articles of attire hang? ing on them. In one street through which I passed onlv threo houses were standing, and this is probably the case in a dozen other thoroughfares. Every? where gangs of soldiers were at work de? molishing walls, collecting furniture, and making tho roads pnssable, while the owners of tho ruins wore, some helping with a sort of resolute fury, others sit? ting on beds or mattresses gazing vaguely at the rubbish which represented their homes. Some of tho more energetic families were pic-nicking and coolcing their middny meals in the desolate gar? dens, the women bright, if not cheerful, the children playing nbout as if nothing had happened. The despondent were just the contrary, the women sitting with their faces buried in their hands, and the boj-s and girls lying huddled toge? ther among tho broken beams and heaps of plaster. Tho road-sides were lined with all kinds of articles, from four-post bed-steads down to blankets nnd bon? nets, and in several places the small shop-keepers weTC drying, or rather at? tempting to dry, thoir stock in trade in the sun. Outside tho barriers the scene is the sonic, with the addition of large swamps, which were once vineyards and corn-fields, and of little piles of gaily painted hoards, once forming portions of summer-houses. Marshal MacMahon, Gen. de Cissey and M: Buffet, with their suites, spent all Sunday afternoon in visiting the quarters of the St. Cyprien and St. Michel, where they talked freely with tho sufferers. I hear the Marshal said it would be better to burn nil the ruins of St. Cyprien, for the odor from the refuse, and also from the many undiscovered dead bodies, is even now scarcely tolerable. The Mar shnl said, moreover, that he had no idea of the destruction, and would do every? thing in his power to alleviate the dis? tress. He afterward visited the Hospital St. Jucrpies, tho military hospital, and the tobacco manufactory. Everywhere he was enthusiastically cheered, with cries of " Vive Macyftthon!" He especially complimented the Baronne de Sandrans, wife of tho Prefect, the Comtesse de Fenelon, and other ladies for their exer? tions, and publicly thanked Souir Polio grin for her labors. At half-past 0 yes? terday morning, tho Marshal attended mnss, and immediately after left for Fenouillet, where only one house and the church are left standing. On his re? turn here he distributed decorations to Gen. du Bessol and other officers and privates. The way in which the soldiers have worked and are working is the theme of general admiration. To-day, a large body of engineers is expected. In the evening, there was a reception at the Perfectuic, anel at 0 this morning, the Marshal and his companions left for Turbos in carriages, the railway commu? nication being interrupted. At Muret, in the Haute Garonne, tho Suspension Bridge has been destsoyed, and many houses wrockeel. itoeiues and Pinsaguel, two villages near, are. masses of ruins. In the Ariege, at St. Li/.icr, three parts of the town have been Hooded. At Moulis, in the Tarn ami Gnronne, the church has fallen. At Golfech, only four houses anil the church arc standing. At Lomagisterc, many houses have fallen and tho bridge has been carried away. In the Haute Pyrenees, at Tarbos and other places on the Adour, houses have fallen and all the crops aro destroyed At Sarginnot, all tho bouses were inundated, several fields anel tho bridgo demolished. At Pau. according to the latest intelligence, the railway communication is cut off. Toulouse is full of people, anxious to learn tho fate of their relatives and'pro? perty. Tho railway service to Perigneux is wholly insufficient, and tho company, although this is the only line open, run no extra trains. A pair of coach-whip enakea wrapped themselves around a negro in BeKalb County, Ga., the othef day and gave him a sound lashing. COLUMBIA, S. C, FRIDAY MORNING, Jl SIMMONS' ECULA TOR The symptoms of Liver Complaint'nro uneasiness ami pain in the- side. Some? times the pain is in the shonhler, and is mistaken for rheumatism. The stomach iis affected with loss of appetite and sick Jness, bowels in general costive, and sometimes alternating with lax. The head is troubled with pain, and dull, heavy sensation, considerable loss of memory, accompanied with painful sen? sation of having left undone something which ought to have been done. Often complaining of weakness, debility and low spirits. Sometimes many of the I above symptoms attend the disease, and at other times, very few of them ; but the Liver is generally the organ most in? volved. SIMMONS' LIVER REGULATOR! For all Diseases of tlie Liver, Stomnch and Spleen ! IT is evidently a Family Medicine, and by being kept ready for im? mediate resort, will save many an hour of suffering, and many a dollar in time and doctors' bills. After forty years' trial, it is still receiving the most unqualified testi? monials of its virtues from persons of the highest character and re? sponsibility. Eminent physicians commend it as the most EFFECTUAL SPECIFIC ? for Constipation, Headache, Pain in the Shoulders, Dizziness, Sour Stomach, bad taste in the Mouth, Dilious Attacks, Palpitation of tho Heart, Pain in tho region of tho Kidneys, Despondently, Gloom and forebodings of evil; all of which are tho ottspring of a diseased Liver. If you feel Dull, Drowsy, Debilitated, kave frequent headache. Mouth tastes badly, poor Appetite and Tongv.e Coated, yon are suffer? ing from Torpid Liver, or "Biliousness," and nothing will cure you so speedily and permanently. The Liver, the largest organ in the body, is generally the seat of the disease, and if not Beguluted in time, great suffering, wretchedness and DEATH will ensue. Armed with this ANTIDOTE, all climates and changes of water and food may bo faced without fear.
