France, England and Germany.—The French official journals speak with great com plaisance of the prospect of a war between Eng - land and the German Powers, while they all de clare that France will certainly keep clear of the entanglement. The English are beginning to see that in event of such a war two or three pri vateers would sweep her commerce from the seas, as two or three privateers, built by her subjects and in her ports, have nearly swept the American flag from the seas. Now, this would produce an immense development of French commerce; and it is well known that the exten sion and enlargement of the commerce of France has been for the last ten years the principal aim of the present Emperor, in his colonial and for eign policy, in his foreign wars and aggressions, such as those in Cochin-China, in the islands of the Pacific, and on this continent. To this end he has made and is making the most gigantic efforts, and is expending vast sums of money.— If an English war with Germ...

little child, Nolly Edgorly, like him an orphan, and the only offspring of tho sister of Mr. Lu roy, to whoso mercies she had been committed after the death of her parents. Her gambols and prattle—she was two years his junior—and ht>r secret whispers of sympathy caused his aching heart to warm towards hor, for she was the only being who witnessed his sufferings— and showed that she was sorry for him. Of all tho wido world, littlo Nellie Edgorly was tho only one he could love. Thus God orders one ray of sunlight to illumine even tho darkest dungeons of the hoart. At the ago of ton, finding that Walter would net die, Luroy determined to get rid of tho ob durate youth altogether. Who was to call him to account? Ho arranged for him to goto seaon along voyage, as a cabin-boy. Walter had a horror of tho sea.

The Dark Side of Revolution. Those who are accustomed to tho discouraging views of our present contest, because thoy imagine we are so much more corrupt and wicked than tho patriots of tho old Revolution ary days, would do well to road tho fourteenth chapter of Lorenzo Sabino's "Historical Essay," in tho now edition of his " American Loyalists." It reads very much like a series of pungent ob servations on cotemporary events, although none will dispute the accuracy and sound judg ment of Mr. Sabine as a historian. We make a few pertinent extracts. Of tho prominent men of tho Revolutionary era, Mr. Sabine says:— " They wore great and good, little and bad, min prled; just as elsewhere in the annals of our race," and ho adds : " Still again, avarice and rapacity were seem ingly as common then as now. Indeed, the stock-jobbing, tho extortion, the forestalling, the low arts and devices to amass wealth, that were practiced during the struggle aro almost incred ible. Washington mourned the ...

Jackson on Speculators. Just before President Jackson retired from tho Presidency, he told Hon. James Guthrie of his characteristic method of dealing with men who undertook to deal improperly with the exigen cies of their country. Contractors followed deneral Jackson's army far into the Indian country, and when tho army began to suffer for provisions, some of those dealers began to ask fabulous prices for their provisions. Jackson was at length informed of their oxtortionate de mands, and ho summoned them before him and attempted an appeal to their patriotism. He found that soil perfectly sterile. At length he ordered a body of officers to appraise the goods, and allow the owners a liberal profit, and then he showod these owners the appraisement. He offered to take their provisions at this appraise ment. They refused to sell, and Jaskson, de termined that his soldiers should not starve, ordered the rations to be distributed, and faith ful account to be kept. As soon as tho owners sa...

An Hour in Congress. it a stranger were to drop into the House of Representatives when in session, and not know that here were assembled the law makers of the nation, he would .certainly be at a loss to tell where ho was, and what kind of a performance he was witnessing. All is apparent confusion and excitement—a perfect Babel. Here are a dozen members clapping their hands to call the pages, when simultaneously as many little boys will start up the isle on a full run ; there is a group of six or eight, and one is talking most earnestly and shaking his fists above his head as if ready to pound his ideas into their crani ums if they didn't " see it" as ho did ; scattered through the hall are others with their feet rest ing on top of their desks, reading and turning— especially the latter —the morning paper ; now a messenger from the Senate enters and rapidly reads a paper from that body, to which nobody seems to pay any attention; on the other side a member is delivering some kind of ...

beauties ; nor was the prospect of his own rein stalment there at all ungrateful to his thoughts. The victory would, in truth, be a splendid one for him—a victory, not of a day, but the fruit of years cf silent and noble endurance, as well as open resistance by arms. He pondered upon it long, and in deep abstraction, while the herald stood before him, awaiting his reply. "What pledge," he at last demanded, "does your master propose to give me, of his good "That which has never yet been broken," was the instant rejoinder—" the word of a Ro manoff " For a short time longer Petroff hesitated; and then lie determined to comply with tho request of tho emperor.

We paid the grove a flying visit in the afternoon and were sensibly reminded of the " days of yore" by the scenes of youthful hilarity presented on all sides. Old and young seemed to enjoy alike the propitious circumstances by which they were surrounded, and evinced a determination to make the best of their opportunity for recreation and amusement. We were informed that a few soldiers so far forgot tho dignity of their calling •vs to present themselv...

We soon obtained access to the President's room. A gjntjeman first approached him on some business. Not coming directly to the point, the President said. "Look hero, sir ; you want me to do something." "Yes sir," was tho reply. " Well, sir, come to the point, then, and tell mo what it is." His business was soon dispatched. The next caso was a widow woman, who desired to have her son released I from the draft. The President said lie couldn't do that if he did others would demand tho MOM thing, and thus the whole army would soon be broken up. "But ho is my only son and my only support," said tho widow. " Then tho law exempts him," replied the President. " But he has been drafted," continued the Importunate mother. " Well, then, th...

The town, before tho war, says an army corres pondent, was important merely as a flourishing business and railroad centre. It was the county town of Fulton county, Georgia. The inhab itants of tho surrounding plantations came there for justice and for trade. Large quantities of cotton and grain found here either a market or shipment for the seaports. Tho people were ac tive and industrious, and met with a merited growth in wealth. There are three railroads which terminate at Vtlanta—the Georgia road, connecting Atlanta with Augusta ; the Macon and Western road to Macon, and the Western and Atlantic road to Chattanooga, Tennessee. A few miles south of Atlanta, branches the Langrange railroad, con necting Atlanta with West Point, on the Chatta hoochee river, at the Alabama lino, seventy-two miles distant. By means of these railroads At lanta in former times, was connected with all parts of the United States, and until recently was the greatest railroad point in the hands of The city w...
