PRANCE AND SPAIN.
The existence of a treaty offen

and France is denied by the min
isterial organs here, but is reas
serted by other journals never
thclcss.
The Post and Standard, in their
last edition, to-day, gives space to
considerable comment and ridi
cule of the Times' statement of
the existence of a secret Prussian
French treaty. They characterize
it as bad rroncu written by a
German. The Times reiterates its
authenticity, and declares it bus
proof and will produce it,
Or the probable effects of the
war upon cotton the World says
We trust the south will not
abandon cotton for grain. Its
true interest requires it to keep
right on in the revival of its old
industry. It has now a golden
opportunity to fill all the markets
with its staple and completely
supplant its rivals. The present
complexion of affairs points to a
short supply of millinery and
trimming goods from Germany
with au aotive demand here, con
siderable speculation and higher
prices. Switzerland, so far as Its
labor and manufacturing are con
cerned, ' is likely to be as much
demoralized and embarrassed by
the preparations for an armed neu
trality as by a state of actual war.
Switzerland is one of the great
competitors with Germany I n ar
tides adapted to the millinery
trade. The outgoing steamers for
European ports aro very deeply
laden with breadstutis and provis
ions. The Calabria left yesterday
with a very heavy cargo and laden
so deeply as to attract even the
attention of people who know
little of shipping matters. The
goods hitherto carried to Europe
in the German steamers are now
conveyed by vessels flying the
flags of nations not yet engaged
in the war.

A very iugeulous trick, by which a

managed that there is but one past

first one-tenth is sliced off; from
the riglit of the second two-tenths :
from the right of third three-tenths ;
and so on to the number nine, from

The telegraph brinsrs tha in for-

There is no doubt that this news

better defense of the Gorman coast
were also applied to the mouth of
the river Elbo.
Inasmuch as it Is generally con
ceded that she is not a match on

fold, the latter power has but little
left save to close her commercial
harbors voluntarily, by snnkon

Prussia, anxious to create a na

her own, bought this same Iahde
in 1854, on tho strength of the old

then in existence,) for the sum of

lue basins are large and capa
ble of floating a fleet of the largest
iron-clods. The fortications are
extensive, and the barracks already
built ana building will comforta
bly accommodate a respectable
army. Two of the greatest draw
backs of this establishment are
want of good water, and the cir
cumstance that the ebb tide falls
fully twelve feet, thus preventing
tlio largest sizo men-of-war from
entering the harbor at all except
at high tide. The channel is also
difficult, but that, in time of war,
and as an additional means of de
fense, is rather desirable than oth
erwlse Franco will make her fleet
blockading the mouth of the We
ser and that of the Elbe near by
strong enough not only to effect
this purpose but also to keep in

the Prussians may have available

raise the blockade.
There aro three points of great

The mouth of the Weser, with the
opulent city of Bremen and its
seaport called Breniorhaven, wnicu
is situate about half way between
Bremen City and the mouth of the
river, and connected with tue city
by railroad. West of the mouth
of the Elbe is situated the wealthy
city of Hamburg, the former qneen

the home of Germany's proudest
merchant princes, who are the
owners of great fleets of vessels;
and not far distant tho bay of
Iahde, with its naval station.whlch
is destined by Prussia to become
her principal marine harbor in
fact, a second Cherbourg.
And Prussia, if she wants to
give relief to her Atlantic coast
must send her navy from tno Bal
tic. Therefore, unless a decided
movement of Prussia's navy from
her Baltic port is heard from, a
naval engagement on a large scale
is not to bo expected. It is of
course probable that France will
attempt to take possession of the

There is something in tha fol

teresting to summer travelers:
I knew him. It was years aco.
Tils name waswell, call U Buuids.
If yon get Into a railroad strur
where one struggles to get anodtar
off the track, you will know more
about Bumps or yonr friends will.
This Bumps was a nice young man.
Ills hair was always combed low
down: he wore brass buttons;
there was never anv dust on his
beels; and there was a mysterious
report current mat ne naa oeen
known to call on the "sherry" for

talk about lever watches, pointer
dogs, steam barges, and be could
relate Incidents of difficulties in
prize rings so beatifully that I ased
to wish to knock some one in the
stomach and break some ambitions
Englishman's jaw-bone. If
Bumps said anything tne wnoie
town swore that it was so. If be
didn't say anything we all stood
back and waited for developments.
At last be weut away. Bis nncle
used his influence to get him a po
sition as baggage master. I never
beard of him for years, but I was
called in one day to see him die. I
went with great pleasure. Bumps
was a mere skeleton ; nis eyes was
like saucers; bis hair was all torn
off from tearing round so in bed.
He told me all about it. lie drove
everybody out of the room, bade
me string np my nerves to near a
most mournful tale, and then be
commenced. He took charge of
trunks end boxes,, and commenced
by lifting them by the bandies, and
setting them down carefully. He
had not observed a month, when
the President of the road called
blm into bis office, cut down bis
salary and told him if there were
any more complaint from ths con
ductor, Bumps wonld bs bnmped
ont of a berth. Then the young
man grew cold and stern. He was
bound to suit that railroad corpora
tion or die. He began br walking
np to a poor old chest belonging to
an orphan, and putting bis foot
through the corner; the conductor
saw the act; tne two snooa nanns
and thev wept for hours on each
other's breasts. Bumps had not
made two trips before he could
sling a satchel eleven rods, retain
ing both bandies in bis grain, in
nocent owners of such things
threatened him, and commenced
snlu against him. and swore they
woma never nae on mat roaa
again, but Bumpa was firm. He
was digntned : ne was solemn ; ne
was working for a higher sphere :
he was treading in the path of dety.
When gentle females wonld hand
nn their tender little baskets and
satchels, Bumps wonld smile a dia
bolical smile, and be would get np
In a corner and jump-on the arti
cles, and toss tnom np ana eice
them, and fling them through ethe
real space. Ana wnen uie train
stopped, be would throw ont a wa
terfall and a tooth brush to answer
the call of check "22." Husbands
struck at biro, and dared him ont of
bis den, and called him abase fiend,
but Bumps was solemn. He knew
his line of business. When he got
bold of a nice trunk he would car
ry a countenance like a strawberry
for joyfulness. He wonld Jerk off
one handle, then another then kick
in the ends, tnea take an axe and
smash the lock, and then he wonld 1
let the shirts and things rattle out
on the track. It got so at last that
oeoole actually paid high prices for
the privilege of living along the line
of that road, as they got their shirts
ror nothing. All tnat was neeaea
was to have the children follow np
Bumps' train.
itut there came a oiacx aay. a
. . . a a.
miserable, contemptible, sneaking
wretch, who owned a saw-mlU and
nail factory, went traveling, ue
ran his factories for two weeks on
nothing but trunk stuff, and he
brought out tne wickedest trunk
that ever went into a car, It was
seven feet thick all round, and there
were sixteen rails driven in one on
top of the other, until the thing was
clear proof. Then be gave it into
Bumps' bands, charging mm to - oe
very careful, if he pleased." The
train started, Bumps got the axe as
usual, and struck at the lid, but the
axe bounded back. Ue struck once
more ; the axe flew to pieces. Then
he got a crowbar and a can of pow
