Disaffection in our own ranks, and
desperate efforts on the part of our ene

I'h.- bright hopes of peace arising from
the negotiations of M. Thiers with the
Prussian leaders in front of Paris, on
the basis of an armistice prop isod hv
1 ord tiiunvllle, are dissipated N '.otia
t ms are interrupted and the dogs of
war let loose again. According; to pres
ent appearances, the war in Purnpc will
continue hroiigh the winter. Ihspatoh
es stale that on Mindav, the full, I'hiers
r -ocived orders from Paris to break oil
negotiations lor an armistice, and leave
tiie royal headquarters. It is said the
duse of rupture, after the Paris Cavern
meat had signified its approval of the
protocol agreed on hv I'hiers and Lis*
march, was the refusal, wi the part ot
lint Prussians, if the project to reviemal
Paris and other besieged towns, and also
because the Prussians accepted with re
sene the scheme lor allowing Alsace and
Lorraine to vota I >r members of the Con
stituent Assembly, and insisted on guar
mines lor a cession of territory. It
seems as if the h reneli people were
Cwomed to destruction, fir, after their
terrible Jos-es and disasters, u look- to
le iUijiOssilda fr them to resist the
Prussians, the Provisional tboernuient
dins not seem to secure earnest or uni

far, we see no signs of any loss of Re

result, though there may I e n loss of two
or three—perhaps half a dozen. As in
October, there seems to have been con'
siderable apathy among Republicans, but
the general result, so far as we can now
estimate it, is better than we expected.
In this Sute the Republicans, we

Iteporteil IM.-In unci Discontent in
London, Nov. B, World's Special —A i
number of letters from the \\ orhl’s eor- j
respondents were received to-day, from
which I extract the following:
“Fearful distress and discontent pre
vail in (ienuany, growing out of a pro
longation of the war. The Journals
dare not speak, because no mercy is
shown by tliis military government The
whole country is morally and materially
in the most deplorable condition, and it
is doubtful how long | nblic indignation
can he restrained by military discipline.
Kvervwhero there is desolation. Tens
of thousands are in mourning. Prussia
may yet greatly injure Franco, but she
is so exhausted that she cannot conquer.
Her King W iilium must goon under the
same conditions as did the Kmperor after
the battles of the 14th, lOth and 18th of
August, when he dared not return to
Paris without achieving success to offset
his previous disaster William also socks
success before daring to return to Her
liii ; otherwise the Prussian power will
collapse like the dreams of the Kufpcror.

Rkno, Nevada, Nov. s. —The Central
Pacific passenger train, bound cast and
duo here at 10 a in., arrived at Verdi, a
sinal town eleven miles west of Reno,
on lime, .fust s the train was stoning
from the station, three masked men
boarded the express car, and five more
immediately came to their aid from the
rear cars These five evidently came
from the west on the train. Six stepped
on the express ear, which they detached
from the, main Inin, cutting the signal
rope, eto. Two jumped on the engine,
and, placing pistols to the engineer's
heal, commanded him to move on, which
he di'l. Two bnkmnen endeavored to
keep the the masked men off the express
ear. but pistols were placed at their
heads, and they were compelled to re
treat. The conductor rushed forward,
hut their pistols stopped him. Finding a
hatchet, he came forward ngain in time
t see tl.o engine and express car sepa
ted from the train, and flying down the
track. The robbers then placed the
fireman, express and mail messengers in
the mail room ami locked them up.
When within six miles of this city they
stopped their train, broke open the ex
press boxes and ro’ohed them of forty
on- thousand six hundred dollars in gold
coin. I.atcr investigation shews that
they put the coin in old boot-tops and
escaped to the mountains A double
barrelled shot-gun and pick were left by
the robbers at the quarry where they
opened the boxes. All the telegraph
wires were cut west of Reno. Two of
the Western Union wires, however, were
repaired by daylight, and business is not
interrupted. Parties are searching the
mountains and will probably be able to
throw more light on this hold robbery
during the day. The railroad wires are
