The Kew Yoik papers are having a lively little war on this side of the water, in regard to the war dispatches, which they receive from the other side. Each paper claima to have correspondents at the headquarters of all the armies, who at least witness, if they do pot valor ously participate in, all the great battles. No doubt their correspondents venture to the very verge of .battle by accident, nr ntherwise sometimes, and have better opportunities of gathering news than if they were on this side ol the Atlantic ocean. One, fact, however, is notable: they are a lucky set of men not one of them has yet been killed. The New York Tribune has published more vol uminous dispatches perhaps than any other rper, sent over in skeleton form and written up and filled out with 'choice rhetoric in the Tribune oflice by some weary devil of a night editor. Hut it turns out that the boastful Tribune has no correspondent with the French armies, and only one-third of a corre spondent at the German headquar ters, lie is a British gentleman sent out to represent the London Daily News nnd the Pall Mall Gazette, more remark able for his fertile imagination than ac curacy. The reports he sends to one of bis London journals are forwarded to the Tribune, and are usually quite readable. The papers of New York jublish a great deal of matter, and display much enterprise, though no thing extraordinary has been achieved, considering their facilities. American ournalists and correspondents have been shown every possible attention and favor by Bismarck and his officers. Hence they have no difficulty in pro curing full reports of what transpires daily. The French have pursued a dif ferent policy, as exclusive and ridiculous as the Chinese within their ancient walls. Correspondents within their lines have received cold comfort, and are often in danger of being shot as spies. We cannot recommend the cable dispatches of one metropolitan journal over another, unless we mention the World's as generally being careful, concise and cautious to avoid sensations which have to be corrected the following day. As to letters, we can recommend Murat Hulstead's, in the Cincinnati Commercial, as being clear, vivid and reliable. He is a ruatter-of fact sort of man, and writes in a. common sense style of what he lias seen and heard. Those war correspondents who ride in ambulances and draw free rations at King William's headquarters have a glorious rasy time to what some of us did down South during the late differ ence of opinion. The best and most reliable letters were often written by privates or subaltern officers who were in the ditches or resting from a long march. The mortality of this class was ofien a subject of mention in the papers, tin the 22i of July,' W4, for instance, three ol these Southern correspondents, all lH-lnrcing to the fame brigade, and noi.e ranking Libber than Captain, rode into the f.bl together. One represented be Chaltjinoosa LVil, then at GriiTin, Ca , ano'.ler the Atlanta Intelligencer, and the third, wrote daily on the pom mel of his saddle for the Memphis-Atlanta Appeal. They had been under fire a hundred times too often to be excited by the prospect of a battle, and rode into the very jaws of death with a cheer fulness which now seems like levity. The last words came with a smilo: "Give me a fuir notice if I am hnrt to day, boys," and they separated; one wus Bhot dead by a canister charge, di rectly through the middle of the body; another, who' wrote on the pommel of his saddle, rolled from- the shell-riddled body of his horso to rise no more on earth with all his limbs; the representative of the Intelligencer lived to enter another battle and to approach the door of his futher's house, which he had not seen in three years, and where he foil to expire with out speaking, in the arms of his sister. Such, were some of the vicissitudes of our war. The writers were men who car ried muskets or swords and wrote from places of danger, where shells ploughed the ground or cut off overhead large branches from trees. ' They lived on hardtack, and were not the favored guests of kings, counts or generals. TEX GUBERNATORIAL CANVASS. General John C. Brown, the Demo cratic candidate for Governor, opened the campaign Saturday, at Chattanooga, the first of his East Tennessee appoint ments. Hon. W. H. Wisener, the Radi cal nominee, has been invited to attend these appointments, and signified his in tention to be on hand.' A special dis patch to the Avalanche gives a short synopsis of General Brown's speech. It is simply from the platform adopted at the Nashville Convention, beyond which it is not likely that General Brown will carry the discussion. DEMOCRATIC NOMINATIONS. Col. Joseph 11. Williams was nomina ted for Floater at the Springfield Demo cratic Convention, last week, represent ing the Nashville District. Col. Nathan Adams was nominated by acclamation for the Senate, to represent Montgomery, Stewart and Robertson counties. The nominees are spoken of in the liighest terms, and their election is assured LO, THE LAZY NEGRO. Preaching-the Fnnerala of the Last Sienerallon. The Holly Springs Reporter of last week gives the following vivid descrip tion of the negro as he is: We hear complaints of the negro in every section of onr county. In town it is almost an impossibility to get negro cooks; and when obtained they leave on the slightest pretext; and when the slightest pretext is not given, they attend "meetings" every night, shout and scream until next morning, and are unfitted for work during the day.. In the country many negroes are neglecting their crops, and cotton and corn are ruining in the fields. A great many have gone in debt for supplies, clothing and gewgaws, and owe more than their crops will real ize. They therefore argue that it is folly to pick out cotton and gather corn for other men to enjoy. Our crops are poor enough, in all Conscience, and the indolence and worthlessness of the negro are making them fivefold worse. We learn that in one neighbor hood the neerocs !eave their work for whole dnys together to attend negro militia meetings and negro funerals. A friend informs us that they are preach ing the funerals of negroes who died fifteen and twenty years ago. If the ne gro does not improve, and bitter expe rience tells us there is little hope, other labor will have to be introduced, or far mers will be compelled to cease their efforts to make crops. The condition of the entiro Southern country illus trate forcibly the tendency and effects of Radical reconstruction and negro legislation. Neal's State Gazette, which is noted for enterprise, life and veracity, has the following strictly reliable item. "Dyer county is now being invaded by large armies of squirrels. We are told that the banks of the Obion, from its mouth up to Merriwether's Ferry, is perfectly alive with them, and that the shooting in the woods sounds like a musket battle oetwecn two armies. The squirrels are eating up the mast from the hogs, and are "everlastingly going for" the cornfields. We hear of one man mourning a heavy loss from the invasion. He had many thousand shin gles on one bank of the river, and the squirrels wishing to cross, put shingles into the stream, got on them, spread their tails and sailed over in fine style leaving the shingles to float down the river." CINCINNATI. Donthera Commercial Convention. Cincinnati, October 3. A meeting of the members of the bar was held in the Supreme Court-room to-day to express respect to the memory of the late Judge Gholson. The Schutzcnfest ceremonies of to day, which were to include target practice on the grounds, were material ly interfered with by the unprnpitious weather. a The Southern commercial visitors i started home again at 1 AO p m. Some few, however, remain to attend the com mercial convention, the first session of which will commence to-morrow at Pike's Music hall. The following topics will be discussed by the Convention: 1. Direct trade between the Southern Atlantic cities and Europe. 2. Southern Pacific Railroad. 3. Obstruction to navigation by narrow-span bridge piers. 4. Continuous water-line communica tion between the Mississippi river and the Atlantic seaboard. 5. Removal of the obstructions from the mnuth of the Mississippi river. 6. Construction of permanent levees on the Mississippi. 7. To abolish all toll charges on the navigable rivers of the United States. 8. Enlargement of the more important lines of canals in the United States, U render them navigable by steam vessels. 9. Finance and taxation. 10. A settled policy in the public in terest in regard to the disposition of public lands. 11. Charges upon passenger and freight traffic, by rail and water lines. 12. To abolish throughout the coun try all license imposed on commercial travel. 13. Removal of the national capital. These subjects will occupy four days. Ad additional subject have been added to the original list of discussion, viz: That all raiiroad viaducts over navigable rivers be made highways for all railroads that will pay a pro-rata of tolls on same, and that efforts be made to secure legis lation to that effect.

INTERESTING NEWS FROM ROME. Prussians Completing their Plans of Attack. .Account or the Damage Done at Strasburg. ENGLAND. London, Oct. 3. Another sortie has been made from Metz by a detachment of Bazaine's army, in search of provis ions, atid the raid proved entirely suc cessful. The garrison suffers principally for want of salt. The Asiatic cholera has made its appearance among the Germans camped at Chalons. The pres ence of the disease excites the most grave apprehensions. The Times of this morning has an im portant correspondence from Saint Pe tersburg, which announces that 'it is generally assumed, within imperial circles at Saint Petersburg, that the Rus sian Government will shortly propose to the Great Powers the revision of the treaty of I85G. . ITALY. Rome, October 3.The pleqiscitum of the Roman inhabitants was success fully accomplished yesterday. The re ports which have been extensively cir culated that the voting had been post poned until Sunday next, were undoubt edly designed to dissuade many from attending the polls, but they utterly failed in their object, as a prompt de nial was given them by the authorities in a circular issued early in the morn ing. Large crowds blockaded the vicinity of the voting places discussing the question upon which they were to decide, and manifesting their assertions by loud cheers for Victor Emanuel and the cause of Italian unity. The voting was conducted in an orderly manner, the result being nearly unanimous in favor of unioa with Italy under the kingdom of Victor Emanuel and his successors. FRANCE. Tours, October 3. Advices from Paris, through various channels, report that the Prussians are completing with all possible expedition their line of cir cumvallation around Paris. They occu py the-redoubt of Gennevilleres in the arc of the Seine, at the northwest, and the redoubt at the town of Villejuf, at the south, and have threatened Forts Becetre and d'lvry, against which latter work it is presumed they will make their main attacks. The siege trains of the Prussian army are expected to arrive at the headquarters of King William at Ferrieres within a few days. It is also anticipated that the King's headquarters will be advanced further before the end of the week, and that immediately fol lowing this event, active operations against Paris will be commenced. BADEN. Cari.sriue, October 3. Yesterday was devoted to religious services in the army which has just occupied Strasburg. The armies which were assembled at St. Maurea and Strasburg organised im mense congregations, and were earnestly exhorted by their chaplains, both Catho lic and Protestant. The whole army then offered thanks for their victory, the Protestant regiments on one side and the Catholics on the other. At the Pro testant service the clergy assured Gen. Werdcr of the loyal devotion of an im mense majority of the Strasburg people to Germany, and their intense desire to be once more within the protection of the fatherland. The ceremonies attracted thousands of Strasburgers and many from this city. Since the occupation a greater oppor tunity has been afforded to estimate the ruin and devastation wrought within the city by the fire of the Prussian artillery, which towards the last was incessant and terribly destructive. General Werdcr, in his report upon the- condition of the city, states that the Prussian fire was characterized by its extreme accuracy and precision. Every prominent structure in Strasburg against which shells or shot fell, were either destroyed outright, along with adjoining buildings, or ren dered irreparable. The desolation is consequently terrible; entire streets are tenantless, houses torn to pieces, foot-ways are encumbered with debris and household furniture, and an picture of utter desolation presented everywhere; ruing of public buildings standing black and desolate, surrounded by piles of rjibbish in the center of the city. Two large vanburgs are entirely in ruins. The celebrated picture gallery, with nearly all its treasure of art, was totally destroyed. Some few pictures were saved. From inhabitants who were in the city dur ing the course of the Beige, we learn that the bombardment last week killed ten civilians daily. Many of these unfortunates perished in their blazing dwellings, while others were killed in out of the way places, and yet remain nnin terred. Parties have been detailed to clear away the rubbish from the main squares and avenne. The Ih-ersburg Gazette says: "Dyers burg, in virtue of the magnificent timber grown in our county, has put in appear ance as a boat-building market. This week we notice that Mr. Soery, of Mem phis, has just finished at our docks, two fiatboata 10xS0 Teet. lie intends to straddle them with a mill the wheel working betwen the boats and thus anehor it in the Mississippi river at any point dVsired, and go to work ' chawing up' timber of all kinds. We believe Mr. Soery has a patent for his torn-out." . The Milan Times, of the 1st hist., has the following item: "We are informed that Mrs. McMinn, living four miles from Milan, who has for years been sub ject to spells of temporary insanity, cut her throat with a razor last Sunday night, and died in a few minutes from the effects of the wound. She and her husband had attended the camp meeting, now in progress at Wright's Chapel on Sunday, and had not been home, long before the deplorable occurrence. She leaves nine children, the moBt of whom are quite smnll." On Wednesday morning, the 21st ult., John Cowan, of Pecan point, Arkansas, shot and killed a bear weighing five hun dred and nine pounds gross. . Tho ur sine marauder was tearing down corn at a fearful rale when ho received his death wound. The scene of the "tragedy" was Captain Ed. J. McGnvock's corn field. The Pecan Point folks revel in bear fat, and as Bruin was in fine order, they are to be envied. DIKl). SMITn At Essex, Connecticut. Sunday morning, Ootober 2d, Maud M. Smith, daugh ter of K.
