The European War—Prussian Victory at Gitschen— The New British Minis try— Great Prussian Victory at Luditz —An Armistice Proposed—New York Markets. New York, July 15. Prussia has carried Gitschen by storm, af ter an obstinate defense, and a junction was effected between the army of the Elbe, under Prince Frederick Charles and the army" of Si lesia, under the Crown Prince. hive thousand prisoners were captured at Gitschen, and the losses by the Austrians in the series ot combats altogether is estimated at twenty thousand killed and wounded, and fifteen thousand prisoners in the battles of the 28th and 27th. The corps of Austrians under General Gablnez was nearly broken up. It lost twenty-four guns and eight flags. It is officially denied that the Prussians had lost eighteen guns, as stated by Vienna dis patches. The Austrians have retired to a strong posi tion between Josephsladt and Konigratz. Their ret reat is said to have been precipitate. 1 he army of the Elbe had advanced beyond Gitschen, The King of Prussia was at Gitschen on a visit to the army. The London Times says that horrible as the carnage has been, it is a mere prelude to the pitched battle, now unavoidable, in which a quarter ot a million of men will be engaged on either side. King Victor Emmanuel had sent a telegram congratulating the King of Prussia on the victory of his armies. The operations between the Italians and Austrians are confined to skirmishing. No engagements of importance had occurred in that quarter. The Italians are- preparing for another on slaught, and the soldiers are eager for the fray. The Prussian march in Bohemia thus far is triumphant. Benedek is concentrating his forces for a great battle. The AusLian loss is four thousand, beside prisoners, at the capture of Gitschen. Prus sian loss Heavy. .Several Austrian regiments were nearly decimated. The Eighteenth Jager battalion wtfc annihilated totholast man. The Austrians claimed a minor success at Braunau, on the 30th. Berlin dispatches of the 1st give official ac counts from the Crown Prince, saying the re sult of throe days' fighting of the Fifth Prus sian Corps cannot be too highly estimated. On the 27th it, was opposed by the Sixth Aus trian corps, which was used up On the 28th, they were again met by the Fifth Prussian corps, under command of Archduke Leopold and General Listiltz. The fighting on these days was over an extended liue. Gablenz's corps was broken up, losing heavily in guns, killed, wounded and prisoners. The Austrians have evacuated Osweiicin. Dresden is being fortified. A Berlin dispatch of the 2d says that not withstanding the arduous campaign and san guinary fighting, the Prussian army is high spirits and excellent condition. Benedek was compelled, in consequence, to retreat. Austrian and Saxon troops are to abandon operations near Gitschen and concentrate at a distant point. Tiie Austrians claim to have captured four thousand men and fourteen guns at Custozza. 'The Austrian Hussars have advanced on tlie Italian territory, near the Mtucio, but were driven off. The division that suffered the most at Cus to/za was not dispirited, and wished to bo pla ced in front in the next battle. The cotton market was quiet and unchanged. .'w'.iu-t 01 mm uuys jo,w': uaies ; sales to spec ulators or exporters, -1,000 bales. Flour is flat and lower. Wheat 3d lower and dull.

The Nova Scotia, from Liverpool on the 5th, via Londonderry the fitli, has just passed. A great battle occurred on the 3 1 inst . near Luditz. The Prussians gained a com plete victory, rapturing i4JMM( Austrians. ’I'lie losses wore terrible on both sides. The Austrians sent a tl.agof truce. Austria has agreed to the cession of Yeuetia and ac cepted Napoleon as a mediator. Napoleon immediately communicated with the belliger ents. London. July 6.—The Prussian and Italian reply to the proposed armistice has not yet transpired. There are rumors, however, that the Prussian reply is n-»t favorable. The Morning Post thinks that the European Congress will shortly assemble, and the French Government will propose a general disarmament. In tiie commercial circles of London peace is regarded as virtually conceded Who was Responsible."—Much has been said about the sufferings Federal prisoners have endured from the inability of the Con federate authorities to properly provide for them, and the refusal ofthe United States au thorities to exchange them. In K-t ruary, 1805, the week ofthe evacuation of Wilming ton, North Carolina, several thousand Fede ral prisoners were collected at Wilmington, to be exchanged. But when the flag of truce was sent to Schofield to know if he would re eeivetbem, lrc replied to Hoke thus if -. o- no time for an exchange of pr 1-tiers, and liny had to be sent back a aiu to the interior -f (North Carolina.

TO TH E VOTJEHIS OF THE State of Arkansas. I present myself before you as a candidate for the office of State Treasurer, and respect fully solicit your support. To many of you I am known porsonally, and to many, not unfavorably I trust, by reputation. Before the war, I was Register of the Land Office at Fayetteville, and during the war, was elected to the office which 1 now seek. With what ability and faithfulness 1 filled these respec tive offices, it is not for me to say, but may I not believe that my conduct in the premises was such as to have merited the good opinion of those conversant therewith ? My l'aflier moved to Washington county when I was but a child ; the State has been my home ever since; all the interests 1 have are identified with her’s and yours. No one deplores her present, condition more thanl do; nor will l yield to any one, whether in office or out of it, in the sincerity of my efforts to bring about that harmony of action and kind ness of feeling among our citizens which are necessary to restore her to her former peace, prosperity and happiness. One thipgis cer tain, that to put her back where she was be fore the war, we must bury the past, and ac cept the issues of the war as the basis of'fu ture action. To this end should all our efforts be directed. In fine, fellow-citizens, if elected, I promise you to devote to the office whatever of ability 1 may possess. What more cau 1 promise ? Of course in that event, you shall have my thanks, but that you well know.
