Esther Clark with their most fasciuatinsr 6milcs and offered her their nomination as School Super intendent. They overrated, how- ever, their blandishments; for Mrs. Clark, being the widow of a Union soldier who fell during the Rebel lion, had a lively recollection of the sharp and savage thing1; which the Democrats used to say of our, war riors. She therefore informed the gallant "Democrats" that fhc did not want their nomination, and that if she concluded to go into the po litical business she would be found most decidedly on the other side, So these wooers left exceedingly dis couraged. on SHERMAN BRIGADE RE-UNION.

This great city of antiquity, has ex isted for twenty-five hundred years, and under the domination of the Catholics for eleven centuries, now for the first time in its history per mits free worship within its walls by all churches. Hitherto the his tory of the city, whether it were Pagan or Catholic in its character, has been one of religious tyranny and exclusion. AVith the entrance of the soldiers of Italy this fell, and at last the Protestant, the Jew and the Greek arc all free to worship as they will, even within the walls of what an aspiring bigotry has named the "Sacred City." Metz Having Fallen. the besieging annv, numbering ac cording to late estimates 250,000, is open to proposals to tackle some other place. Probably some will join the twenty-five thousand that arc now laying siege to Mezieres; some will go to Paris, and some will doubt less be sent to Orleans, where, ac cording to the latest dispatches, a great battle is imminent. Who can doubt that the same success will at tend the Prussian armies in their new places that crowned them at Metz? And who can doubt that the true policy of France is to make peace on the best terms it can obtain? THE STORM. THE STORM. Crew of a Life Boat Lost--Vessels Completely THE STORM.

A vessel supposed to be the schooner Mary Ann Rankin of Buffalo was on Sugar Loaf Point yesterday, and was breaking up. It was "feared that the crew would all be lost.

The captain and tin; rest of the crew took to the boat, and when about half way to the shore the boat was swamped and three more of the crew were drowned. The entire crew are supposed to be lost.

The bombardment of Paris was fixed for November first, and, unless this statement was as unfounded as the others fixing earlier dates, we shall soon hear of "the beginning of end." It is stated that solemn religious services were held through out the German camps around Paris Monday, it is supposed as a pre liminary to opening the bombard ment. It is given as a reason for bombarding Paris, instead of starv- it into submission, that the vio lent course is the more merciful of the two, as the suffering caused by a long siege would be infinitely great- r, and wore difficult of alleviation after the surrender, than that result- inr from the fiercest bombardment. If the stories of the French prison ers taken in the engagements around Paris arc true, and unless the tales of refu-rees scekinsr to find their way through the German lines, pre ferring the risk of quick death to the certainty of slow starvation are fictitious, there is already much pri vation from lack of food in the for tifications and city. This tallies with accounts from apparently trust worthy sources, iriviug the result of personal experiences in the city dur ing the past three or four weeks. These, either circumstantially or in cidentally, show that whatever boast may be made in regard to Paris be ing provisioned foimontiis, there has been for some time difficulty in getting enough to eat at prices within the reacli of even those in moderate circumstances, whilst anion" the poor the distress is very great. In spite of the presence of Gari baldi in the Vosgcs, the Germans advancing from Upper Alcacc to wards the heart of Paris are making steady progress. They have arrived at Dijon, which has been occupied by twelve thousand Germans after few days bombardment. There are rumors of Garibaldi's harrassiug the invaders, but nothing definite in regard to material successes. The occupation of Dijon, which is an nounced by French official dis patches, is sufficient evidence that he has been unable to seriously iin pede their progress. The coming of Garibaldi to France was very evidently a serious mistake, and correspondents with him, and in sympathy with him, confirm each other in stating that he so feels it The French Generals are jealous of his popularity and do nothing to support him. Gambetta, on his meeting with Garibaldi at Tours, plainly exhibited his dissatisfaction, seeing in him an clement that might in the future prove troublesome. To get him out of the way as speed ily as possible he was packed off to the Vosges and a motley crew of all nationalities assigned to his com mand. These, nominally ten thou sand, arc in reality but five thousand, undisciplined, badly organized, and sadly deficient in arms and ammu nition. To make matters worse, he has not the confidence of the French people, who look on him as a foe to religion, and has in particular given mortal offence to the people of Up per Alcasc by expelling the Jesuit fathers from the town which he has made his headquarters. The destitution to which the peo pic and arnry m Jlctz nail heen re duced before the surrender is best shown I13-the extraordinary efforts making by the Germans for their relief, now that the place is in their hands. Immense supplies of provis ions are being forwarded, and sheep and surgeons are flocking to Metz to feed the hungry and attend to the sick and wounded. Cleveland Herald. A Desperate Attempt to Commit Suicide. The Niles, Michigan Jtejmbliran, of October 20th, says: Hiram Clark, a well-known stone mason of this city, on Monday last. made one ot tnc most determined and persistent attempts to commit suicide that we ever heard of. Clark entered the drug store of Larimore & Dean, and purchased a four-ounce bottle of laudanum, and before any thing of the kind was suspicioned, he rushed into the back room and swallowed about half the contents of the bottle enough to have killed almost a dozen men with as much gusto as if it had been a favorite beverage. Mr. Dean's attention be ing attracted by his action, he seiz ed and wrested the bottle frojn Clark, and by the tjmely assistance of Dr. Bohine, who was present, they forced him to drink a solution containing a heavy dose of ipecac, which, in about ten minutes forced his stomach to expel the poison. Clark avowed his intention to kill himself, and made unsuccessful ef forts to secure and swallow the bal ance of the liquid suicide. Leaving the store, he hurried into Gould's and called for some kindred drug, but they were immediately warned to refuse him anything. Ho then posted off immediately to Richard son's, where he met a similar refusal. Clark then started up Second street, as if making for the river, but he kept on to the woods this side of J. S. Bacon's, whore he attempted to hang himself tp a limb with a rope or string, but, foiled in this attempt by a crowd of men and boys who had followed him. He then went to Mr. Bacon's house, and, telling Mr. B. that some persons at the door wished to see him, sprung for a knife with the presumed intention to cut his throat, but the crowd follow ing him here took him in charge, and the City Marshal lodged him in the calaboose for safety until even ing, when he was released. During all this time Clark seemed as cool, self-possessed and determined, as if entirely in his right mind and bent upon some laudable attempt to save rather than to take, life. He is a man of family; hut we have heard no reason assigned for his strange conduct, except the belief that the use of liquor may have produced this tremendous effect. The Democrats have earned West Virginia by a small majority, have secured two out of the thre'u Con gressmen, and should they have a majority in tlio State Legislature, will elect a United States Senator to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Senator Willey, Jfodoubt the Democracy will fed thnukfulfor small favors. THE OHIO CONGRESSIONAL DELEGATION. GATION. , ! AVc make the following extracts from an article in the Cleveland Leader, under the above head: Perhaps the strongest delegation which ever was sent to Congress from Ohio is the one chosen at this fall's election. Of the nineteen members eleven are members of the present Congress, and three others have been members in the past, so that only-five arc absolutely newto Congress. The eleven re-elected members are Messrs. Stevenson, Smith, Beatty, Peck, Wilson. Bigham, Ambler, Up son and Garfield." Republicans, and Morgan and Van Trump. Democrats. They are all able men of long Con gressional experience. Mr. Bing ham has served for fourteen years m Congress, General Garfield for eight and Mr. Wilson for four. The loss of Gen. Schenck is a serious one, but he proposes to contest the elec tion on good grounds, ana win, we hope, be admitted. The new members are .uessrs. Perry, Foster. Monroe and Spragne. Republican, and Mr. Lamison, Democrat. -Messrs. Perry and Mon roe are two of the ablest men in the State and will make their mark ui Congress. Mr. Perry is a man of immense resource, and a thinker of unusual precision and logical power. Mr. Monroe is an eloquent orator, a graceful and accomplished scholar, an experienced legislator, and one of a few with the inborn genius for leading and controlling men. Messrs. Foster and Sprague are both excel lent and active business men. of -Oh Hotel Robbery. On Saturday night last, a young man put up at the Empire House, and registered his name as W. San ford, San Francisco. He said he was tired and would retire at once. Mr. George Downey took him to a room on the first iloor, but he said he would prefer one higher up. This was not given him and he was left, Some time after, Mr, Thomas Woods, a gentleman slopping at the house, found that during his absence his room had been entered and a valise opened, and goods to quite an amount taken out. The alarm was at once given, and suspicion falling upon the man Sanford, his room was entered, but he was not to be found. On inquiring at the depot, it was found that a person answer ing his description had taken the cars for Kent. An officer proceeding there found Sanford in bed at the hotel and the goods in his posses sion, lie. was brought back here. where he waived an examination and will be tried at this term of court. He says that Sanford is not his name, and that he would rather die in States Prison than have his parents know of his disgrace. A . ron Times. Death of the Wickedest Man. John Allen, noted two years ago as the "Wickedest man in New York," died on the Kith of last month, at West Perth, in this State, where his father resides. John, it may be remembered, kept a dance- house and a drinking.saloon in Wa ter Street, and turned his establish ment into a place of daily prayer, under the influence ot several iren tleinen connected with the Howard Mission. More than a year ago he moved into a Jargo lirick building, which he had erected at Roosevelt and Batavia streets, and kept a gro cery on the ground floor. The up per stories he rented to families. At first he attended to business and prospered; but after the death of his wife his old habit of drinking overcame him. He lived in idleness for six mouths previous to his death and his store was without goods. In August he went to his father's farm and remained there until his dc cease. He leaves over !fl00,000, earned chiefly in his nefarious Water street pursuit. While residing in Roosevelt street, he frequently vis ited the Howard Mission in his so ber moments, and professed religion. y. Y. Sun. Death of the Wickedest Man. A Night in a Forest--Desperate Fight with Wildcats. In the beginning of September Messrs. J. B. Talbot. Horace Jones, and Alex. Smith visited Elk coun ty, Pcnnsj-lvania, for the purpose of examining a piece of land therein situated, which had been purchased by Mr. Talbot. A terrific thunder storm came tip, and they were com pelled to seek shelter under the branches of a hemlock, whose moss covered and thick foliage gave evi dence of great age. The storm soon burst upon them with fearful fun" The very air grew thick, and dark ness set in. All went well tillabout 11 o'clock, when they heard a slight sound in the brush, and peering out in the darkness they discovered two fiery eyes glaring upon them They knew that a wildcat was ap proaching and they grasped their rules more lirmly. The fierce ani mal quietly walked around the tree three times, as if meditating how to attack them.graduallv drawing near er each time. At last it stopped directly in front and seemed crouch ing as if about to spring upon them At this critical juncture Talbot dis charged his rifle directly at the ani mal. With a. fearful screech that filled them with fear, it bounded into the brush, and when the echoes of the rifle had died away all was still, and a deeper gloom settled down upon them. An hour had probably clasped, wnen, to tneir Honor, tne fiery eye balls of two more wildcats sudden ly peered upon them out of the thick, murky darkness. They stood erect and grasped their arms in the attitude ot charge bayonets. The animals slowly approached and seemed intent on mischief. As they could not see to reload their arms, and as Talbpts' "tin was dis charged, they were compelled to exercise the greatest caution m ol der to make their fire cflective in the event of a spring from the ani mals, lite wildcats walked around several times.then suddenly stopped an instant, when, quick ns thought, one of them, giving a low growl, sprang at them. As luck would have it, Smith caught it on the end of his rifile, and, pulling the trigger at that mo ment, sent" the ball through its heart It rolled ofl uttering n fright ful yell, rnd by the kicking and scracthing in the bushes they knew it was wounded. At the same time they all yelled as loud as they could, which seemed to frighten the other, and it bounded info the bushes and disappeared. They were not dis turbed again during the night, hi the morning they found tno dead wildcats lying within thirty feet of the tree under which they had taken shelter. Fortunately, tiiey took a course which brought them to a set tlement, and after rccnpcralingtliey returned to thp city. -t , Why have the widows the right to flirt?

The; discorery a salt spring at St, Julien .was a hoax got up by putting' salt Into a spring to encourage the arm-. When the rendition was known the people were furious. The Na tional Guard refused to lay down their arms, and on the afternoon of 26th a dragoon captain appeared at the head of a body of troops who swore they would sooner die than yield. Albert Colignon. editor of an ultra democratic siege paper, the Journal De Jfetz, rode about on a white horse, firing a pistol and ex horting them to rally and seek vic tory or death to escape the impend ing shame. He was followed by a lady singing the Marseillaise, which produced terrible excitement. The doors of the cathedral were burst open and tocsin and death bells were rung nearly all night. Gen. Coflin ieres offered to pacify them; three pistol shots were received by him. Finally, by the aid of two line regi ments, he'quletly dispersed the mob, but all night sounds of grief, indig nation and terror continued. Re spectable women ran about the streets tearing their hair and fling ing their bonnets and laces under feet, seeking their friends and ask ing wildly, '-What will become of our children? Soldiers drunk and ober tumbled hither and thither in irregular groups with their caps off ami their sabres broken, sobbing and weeping like children and crying pauvre Metz! Oh ma pauvrc Metz!" Yesterday I was closeted with the Maire and Qitv Council two hours while they detained me, as the first stranger having entered, to ask all sorts of questions, some childish in their agitation. I here was un certainty and terror as to what the Prussians would do a and how they must be met. It was as if they had never seen a Prussian. They de manded to know if their already destitute larders must still nourish the troops, and whether they would be personally maltreated if they were unable to lurnisn wnat was re quired. They were relieved by hearing that a thousand wagons were ready at Courcelles to bring provi sions hither, and also that there are funds in London waiting to be an plied to their relief in response to the appeal of the mayor of Brioy, and other communications published m English and American journals, Food is needed quickly. The entire besieging army voluntarily gave up their bread rations 3-cstcrday to feed their French prisoners. This deeply touched the Metzians and did much to relieve their fears, At noon a Prussian railway in spector made a tour from Airs to the Union Station, a mile south of Metz, by rail. To-day perfect rail road communications exist between Saarbruck. Metz and Nanev. The road was little injured. But few German prisoners were found in Metz. lhe erench had not kept those they took when able to return them. On leaving Metz, last night, I noticed on the faces of all German soldiers a look of quiet satisfaction Not one of the French officers and soldiers who swarmed all about, even when intoxicated, which was surprisingly rare, wore any other look than that ot sadness or defi ance. The latter, however, was not common and occurred chiefly among me younger oiucers. 1 am in formed that the French loss killed in the various affairs since August ISth, added to the deaths from sick ness in tiie town, was 42,000. 15a- zaine himself declined the Prince's generous proposal to let all the troops lay down their arms outside the works in view of their conquer ors, instead ot laving them down 111 the arsenal, saying he could not guarantee their behavior. The Guard Imperial alone had preserved its discipline sufficiently to be trusted to pass 111 armed review. Their demoralization was due large ly to hunger, which wasbitterly and openly complained of by their oll- cers. At four yesterday afternoon Ba zaine passed through Ars on his way to Wilhclmshohe in a closed carriage marked with his name and escorted by several officers of his staff on horseback. The women of the village had heard of his coming and awaiting him saluted with ex clamations of '"Traitor," "Poltroon," "Volcur," '"Brigand," AVhcrc arc our hnsbands whom vou have be trayed:'" '"Give us back our children whom you have sold!" They at tacked the carriage and broke the windows, and would have lynched the Marshal but for tho intervention of the Prussian gens d'armes. The French declare France has no hope but in Paris, and their faith is less in Paris than in Metz, but there are earnest people who still say war will only begin with tho fall of Paris. The Tribunes special correspon dent at the headquarters of the ar my of the Loire at Solbris, writing on the 2()th, says: A reconnoisanee pushed in several directions have discovered no 1'rnssians, but they arc known to be in force about Ven -dome and other good positions. On the French side everything is 'at a stand still. General Danrells left camp and has gone to Tours, never thelesswe expect a forward move. It is madness to wait here for the attack. Troops have been sent from Solbris to Blois to reinforce the luth corps. The health of the troops is pretty good, anil food .abundant. The morals are low, and fears of treason are everywhere expressed, Throughout all the districts I have traveled, anybody who posses any thing, and all thinking people desire peace.

SEAL, Has just received a new inven tion, in the way of an improve ment m Ladies' Boots, lhe boot i made-high in the leg, with elastic sides. The improvement consists arranging the elastic and lin ing, that the elastic will clasp the ankle ; and the lining, while pro tecting the elastic from the sweat of the foot, will also yield to its contraction and expansion. It great beauty is this: that it is easy to put on, fits snugly when on, and protects the foot and limb from cold. It will certainly be a favorite with the ladies. Samples can be seen at Jus shop.
