Paris has capitulated. The Prussians hold the forts around tue-xity, ana a formal surrender of the army of Paris has probably taken place before this time. One of the terms proposed by Prussia is the ascension of the Prince Imperial to the throne of the Empire, with his mother, Eugenie, as Regent. Then come forty ships of war, a thou sand million francs and the cession of the province of Alsace, a portion of the province of Loraine, and another terri tory, name not known. After all the sufferings of France, this demand for spoliation must be complied with. But ucb is war, and such is the digestive power of its enormous stomach. France whittled down to a third-class nation I the city of the world no longer the seat of power! No prestige, no new Napo leon, no heroes to set np, and say to the world: Match them! But France will come to life again. Her resurrection is as certain as that the seeds that autumn drops into the earth will spring forth again bearing flower and fruits. Let that pass.' The world U glad of peace on any terms. A thrill runs this -morning through every nerve, muscle and artery of commerce. Men are standing on the streets with radiant faces, and gesticulating, all ' over the' world! 'Change is excited. Speculation has almost an ague. What effect will the news have on stocks, merchandise, cot ton, tobacco and all the great commodi ties that move the world? Will it raise the price of cotton, make the planter glad, the merchant joyous and all par ties happy? Commerce now takes a new departure. France and Prussia want provisions. The great West has her boundless stores ready. They want clothing. The cotton and wool growers have the needful. There ia no nook or comer of business that the thrill of peace will not penetrate. The news is good, glorious. BECTIOKAL IEOI3IATI0K. . The action of the New England mem ber of Congress, with reference to new congressional apportionments, involves the greatest of injustice to the West and the South, because it deprives these sec tions of the country of their rightful rep resentation in the next Congress, and also deprives them of their full represen tation in the Electoral College that will choose the next President. Each State it entitled to as many votes ia the Electoral College as it has Senators and Representatives in Congress added together: or. as each State has two, and only two Senators, it has two more elec- . ton than representatives. At present, Missouri has eleven, Illinois sixteen, and Iowa eieht electors; bat, under the new apportionment, Missouri will be entitled to fourteen, Illinois twenty," and Iowa eleven electors. So, too, the eighteen Western and Southwestern States lying !,; aide' the AUeeheniea. that now have only 152 electoral votes, will, under tm new aDDortiontment, have 173 votes, ' v,;iotKp sixteen Atlantic States that now have 154 electoral votes, will, under the new apportionment, have 163. The for. mer ought therefore to cast twenty more f,.r President in 1872 than they in 1SG8: while the latter would cast only nine more thau they cant in 1808. It it to debar the West and Southwest from the exercise of this increased power in the Presidential election of 1ST2 that the Eastern States seek to postpone the application of the new apportionment till 1873. The strode for power be tween the West and Northeast it rapidly approachiag, and will culminate ia the downfall of that arrogant New England policy of making New England interest the pivot upon which all legislation mut tarn. The West, through their represen. tativea, demand a full share of represen tation according to the censu returnt in the Forty-econd Congrti and in the election of 1ST2. KITES BLAUGHTER8.

To sug gest no other matter, in reference to the affair, it id doubtful if the loss of life ou our rivers finds an equivalent in the ben efit that it navigation by steam affords.

The spirit of the imprisoned force leaps forth, carrying destruction in its course. It is next to impossible to fix any responsibility. ; The bout is duly inspected, the captaio is competent, the engineer is sVillful and attentive," and everything i provided for, but still the disaster comes in a moment unexpected Shall we do away with steamboats and go tack to barge and llatboftts? Must we carry on commerce at so dreadful a cosi? Of course. What else cau we do? Must science stop here? Is there nothing within her secret stores yet to be drawn forth? I there now no uew thought in ome man' .-tufuoV not quite developed, but in the chrysalis of a great and per fect invention, to chain the fire fiend to hi,- cell so firmly that he cannot, break away? All the publio can do is to clasp its hands' and exclaini: What'can be done to avoid the slaughter of the people on steamboat? The question ha long remained unanswered. , I . . m - - -) i .

The next day before noon, January 24, a council of war was held and Favre's mission considered. Gen. Von Roon, Count Bismarck, Gen. Von Moltke and the Crown Prince of Prussia were present, in addition to the Emperor William, who presided over the council. On the morning of January 23, a flag of truce left the French line and was met by the Germans. The bearer de livered a letter from Jules Favre ad dressed to Count Bismarck. At noon the missive reached Versailles, and was placed in the hands of Bismarck. It requested permission for Favre to come to Versailles. Bismarck replied that he mieht do to at ten o'clock the same night. Thi was told to Jole Favre, who re turned to Pari at half past four o'clock the same evening. A he wa being driven in hi carriage down the avenue leading to the Sevree road, Bismarck, who was luting his daily ride, encoun tered him; he turned hi horse' head and rode by the window, conversing with Favre all the way to town.

A passage curiously apropos to pres ent experience in Paris came across ns the other day in turning over the leaves of Alexander Dumas' "Thousand aiid One Phantoms," written many years ago. One of the characters tells another that the Prussians will one day scourge Paris, and that the Tat ought to be en couraged and well fed, for the Parisians will certainly have to eat them. Dumas little expected to live to see his jocular remark a sad reality. J i m mmm m - y BREVITIES. , , Joe Locke, news dealer, has all the latest daily and weekly papers. .
