A Might scene in Ht. Diary's and Alaska
The.approach to Ala.ska street on one of
these warm and steaming evenings is a path
of perfumes. Contributions of odor from the
teeming grog-shops on Seventh street—taint
and sickly vegetable smells from the hand
carts of green-stuff at the. corners—the scent
(and occasionally the phosphoric glimmer) of
sodden and doughy-looking. fish—the salt
pungencyof clams and crabs—and above all
the flavor of dozens and hundreds of human
skins, drying off together into the sultry open
air after the labors of the day—these flowers of
low life aromatize the way of him who, led
by pity or duty, seeks the haunts of poverty
in . the by-streets between Lombard and Ship
Seventh Street,
in this section, is almost a chain of dram-shops,
each with its-dark clustering -crowds- of- in
.fastened around the slimy orange
colored barrels like obscene pismires about a
dead Jtin&bug. These groups hunqh (114 into
the 'public street, and materially impede the
tborougbfare ; but a stationary officer of po•
lice, standing ramrod-like and official i..
very centre of each of the principal crowds,
generally succeeds in clearing a narrow path
way through the press, through which the
tired labOrer, loaded With fluidly ptirchaSes,
can slouch homeward. The perspective is one
of low, blackened brick houses, with now and
then an external stairway to,the upper floors,
over whose rail hang.:clusky,- v gossiping. figures
With platter d basket; like servants lu the
background of festival-scenes by Veronese. A
particularly musky, quarrelsome, sodden
looking tlirong, illuminated partly by
the street-lamp and partly by the tallow
41ips of those who sell boiled crabs and
wilted vegetables: - marks the entrance to
St. Ilar3'm Street.
As we push and shoulder through these with
' some difficulty, we ,have the good fortune to
I- ta-011liter a friendly face. -It is set on the
j broad shoulders of Sergeant Dlifiy, who h is
graVitated 6 hither on his nightly round of. in-
I .peelion, and who is note collecting informa
-1 lion from one of his officers, perhaps the good
! hearted and judicious McCullough. With
I !hese two good and true men we venture a
'title way into the filthy side-street. Under
I I'n-supervision of the excellent Sergeant,-the
l''vwer.cpart of-our city,-soutl of_Cedar and
a-st of -Broad street, has attained a certain de
gree of quiet and propriety, as,much as can be

houses, refuges for casuals, &c. ',Though
nothing can or will raisti the inhabitants of
these small intersecting streets above the rank
f unclean animals, yet it is a greaVdeal to
t ave introduced a fair degree of order, to have

Alaska street, in conjunction with that self
sacrificing philanthropist, Rev. Mr. Long, a
great - deal of good has been effected. The
Board of Health has been induced to enter the
street and forcibly close up the nests of pesti

and deserted, their filthy sins hidden under a
kindly mask of whitewash, like a malarial
country under snow. The baths are cleaning
nearly two hundred living 'bodies daily, and
introduCing the ambition of personal nicety.

A Singular Electrical Phenomenon ands
Novel 'theory.
A tornado passed over some parts of Min
nesota a few days ago, which was marked by
the same characteristics as that which visited
some parts of this State and New England
about the same time.. It was very severe in
some towns, while in the neighboring places
it was not telt at all, or at most was scarcely
noticed, and it appeared to travel in a narrow
.path..'.A. writer. in:the - St.. Paul Press; . 'who
v‘iinessed the storm at Owatonna, in the
Aouthern part of Minnesota,
.gives the follow
ing account of its singular appearance there:
This morning at about half-past two o'clock
:his city was visited by the most terrific .and
destructive tornado which it has ever known.
flie Round House of the Winona and St. Pe
ter- Railroad Company was-unroofed, and. a
arge portion of the walls demolished. The
engine " Clermont" was nearly buried in the
debris, but sustained no serious damage. The
night watchman- wasin - the

engine tender. -The wheel of the windmill on
, Lie urninance west of the city was completely
destroyed:- This wheel was nearlyuone bun. -
dred feet in diameter. A large - ice-house was
blown to atoms. The cheese factory was so
badly damaged as to be unfit for further use
without repairs, and I am told that the sum

” There WaS - n - either - irtin nor ..hair. There
seemed to be...one current approaching the
eity from the southwest. and another from the
outheast, and when r first noticed these cur
rents they were quite distant from each other;
hut they rapidly approached; converging di
rectly upon the city,_ When apparently a mile
allay, there appeared midway between the
tw o curretits, ant =at a - row elevation, a light,
small at first, but gradually increasing, until
tt reached the size of an ordinary hogshead.
its base was parallel to the surfiice of the earth.
The sides seemed to approach each other at an
inclination of about thirty degrees. At the top
f this cone; and • - apparently juSt- separated
from it, appeared a bright blaze, which shot
toward the zenith in forked flames, Ipatige
from ten to fifteen feet in height. The cone
.eneath the blaze seemed to revolve rapidly
ground an axis, vertical to the centre of the
earth. The brilliancy of this air-fiend
tiecame constantly more intense as the
currents approached each other, and its revo
lutions became proportionately more rapid,
until in the shock caused by the collision
which occurred on Cedar street, some fifty
rods north of the public square—a terrific and
deafening sound was heard, followed by a dis
persion of seine• fifty fragments of electrical
light, in apparently solid form. These were
een ricocheting in every direction, approach
ng the earth, and withdrawing from it in fan
.astic, though appalling gyrations. The scene
of this phenomenon was the region of the
ereatest disaster. The wind blew sharply i but
lid not do the damage. There was a fierce
and terrible force in the air, not the air itself,
which nothing could withstand. Single
dangles were plucked from roofs. One picket
was torn from the fence while its fellows were
unmoved. A single row of onions in a neigh
hoes garden was torn from the ground, and
the others left to grow and ripen undisturbed.
" The foregoing facts furnish data upon
which I base the following theory : The °sees
-iye heat of the two preceding days was such
is to produce,great disturbance.in the. atm
phere, and to give rise to the formation of
trong aerial currents. which, after becoming
omplicated, rioted awhile in close combat,
Ind then separated, perhaps by electrical
how, formed again in different quarters—two
.-trongchannels of alloy' agair emergiog upou
comrnon'eentre. Approaching each other,
he space through which the electricity inhe
ent in the air was diffused became rapidly
, ess, and stall less, at the same time it would
lie carried along by its own adhesion to the
moving mass of clouds. It thus' became gradu
ally condensed, and by its own motion, to
eether with the constantly increasing pressure
the approaching currents, forming walls
..hrough, Which it could not, break, and the
Friction cairsed"by'the Mobility of its own pat- -
'ides upon themselves, intensified the. heat
until it became first luminous, then lambent,
then concentrated in tangible form,and finally
yielding to; the power of its own explosive
force, burst asunder, forming numerous balls
of concentrated lire, which discolored and
spent their fury on surrounding objects.

any serious damage."

—The special correspondent of the Trantne, at
M etz, semis advices on the 24th inst., that
there were then no news from the front. There
was no possibility of passing the lines. He
had an. intereiewwith the. Seeretary of- Gen.
Bazaine. To the repeated requests of the
nephew of the latter for a pass, the reply con
sisted in showing a letter from Le Boeuf, say
ing that by the Emperor's special .desire all
corps commanders were to use the greatest
vigilance to prevent all persons not belonging
to the army from acconapahving it . .to Ger
many, and especially jtarriatists. Our corres
pondent urged. an exception in favor of Ameri
'can journalist. He replied that permission
would be given to Americans if to anybody.
The uncle regretted to refuse. He feared
the refusal would be misinterpreted in the
United States. Our correspondent thinks that
this has reference to the General having been
ordered out of Mexico rather sharply by
American compatriots. The matter was ended
by referring the correspondent to Le Boeuf,
refusing even to look at passports and letters
from the American Legation. On Monday,
25th, the correspondent telegraphs from Metz :
, ‘Genefal Bazanae leaves this morning, with
fifteen thousand-men.; Ladmliatilt goes also.'!
The Einperor is expected to arrive next
Thursday, and a battle, it was anticipated,
would shortly afterward take place. The
army of B frica was rapidly arriving. The
Zouaves that left Constantine on the 16th had
also come.
The special correspondent of the Tribm)e
in Paris, under date of 2.5 th inst:, states -that
private letters from the headquarters of the
army say that no stranger will be respected.
Formal orders have been given to shoot every
attemptiTig to coideatie or. ors

-- Advices from the special correspondent of
the Tribune at Cherbourg, state that the

•mand of a ice-Admiral. and. two Rear Adtni-.
ials—the chief in command being Vice-Admi

the iron-clad Surveillante, Commandant Gri

Admiral Pothouan, whose flag-ship is the iron
clad frigate La Savoie, Commainiant Perigot:
This division-comprises the iron-clad frigate

irigatei Ocean, Commandant Descheney ; the
iron-clad-guard-ship Rochambeati, Carol:nand

is commanded by Rear-Admiral Dieudonue.

commandant De Jouguteres, and Flander,
Commandant Duval ; the iron-clad corvettes
Thetis, ComMandant Serris,and Jeanne cl'Arc,
Commandant Reboust. The Rochambeau
above mentioned is the Dunderberg, bought
iu the United States. The thickness of her
plates is 5 inches, that of all the other ships 8
inches. The Rochambeau's armament is 15
guns of 9i and 10i inches bore, throwing solid
hot weighing X 175 pounds a distance of 13,000
I cet.
The fleet is thoroughly equipped in all re
spects, but trained seamen are wanting. The

coast to join Gen. Bourbaki's 30,000 men.
The squadron is to blockade the Prussian

The defences of Cherbourg have been
strengthened within a few days ; but had a
Prussian fleet attacked the place last, week it
might have entered through the Western
pa.ss, burned the arsenal and the town, and

by the line which leads past Bitche and Sarre
gueadnes to Metz. Along this line warlike
preparations of every kind were to be seen. I
passed field-batteries parked con:white at the
difkrent shunting places, until I got tired of
looking at them. Although the French carry
their infantry and artillery a good deal over
the railways; they seem inclined to allow the
cavalry to 'march _along the roads. We saw
more than a single party of horsemen, and in
out' case a whole regiment walking along the
high way,•which,-jusk before,we-arrive&at the
Vo,ges, ran parallel with the rails.

highest spirits as they waved their hands and
spurred their someivhat jaded steeds into a

of hills, which takes rise nearßelfort, runs

After winding for some time through a de

the western slopes of •t he Vosges, we arrived
at Bitche, a small fortified place with a strong
citadel, the strength of which seemed to lie in
the high and scarped sides of the-hill upon
which it was perched. From Bitcbe to Sarre
guetnities we passed camp after camp. True,
many of these were small, but everything con
nected with them unmistakably revealed that
these- were the- outlying parts of -the huge
force. From Bitche to Sarreguemines is

which are watching the frontier, and

The Duke of fissamont's Statement to
the French Sensate.
ftrcia La Ltherte, l'arie, July 16. J
In the French Senate, July 15, the Duke of
Grnmont read the following as _thedeciarae
tibti of the - • •
Gentlemen : The Manner in which the nation
has received our declaration-convinces us
that we may count upon its supplt. We
sought to make known our ltimate
grievances: Accordingly we have required
nothing from Spain; we have not deemed it
necesary to treat .with' the Prince of Ho-
Atenzollerm who -is protected by the
Ring of Prussia . The' majority of
the Powers have hastened to recognize,the_
jitstice of our demands. We addressed ur
selves then to the Minister of Foreign Attars
at Berlin:who announced that he was entirely
unacquainted with this family matter. In view'
of this fact, we sought audience with the King
himself, and oidered M. Benedetti to go im
mediately to Ems. King William pretended
that he had taken no pat t in the negotiations
undertaken with reference to the candidacy
of the Prince of Hohenzollern ; that he
had participated in thew at their ter
mination to give his onus lit, not as sovereign
but as head of the family. It being impos
sible that these reasons should appear
satisfactory to us, we insisted that the King of
irrussia should advise and demand that the
Prince of Hohenzollern renounce all claim to
the throne of Spain. Meanwhile, there came
firm Spain a declaration from M. de Olozaga,
announcing that the Prince had renounced
the crown. This renunciation, which Prussia
persisted in having no part in, could not
satiety us, and we demanded of the King,
therefore, that he should declare that if the
Crown of Spain should ever be offered to the
leince ~of Huhenzolli ru, he ithe King
no lung, r authorize him
to accept it. Our demand was jtli'
sad moderate ; we had nu reservations; never
theless the Eine of P.onsia rejected our de
mand. M. Benedetti telegraphed to us : "
:lave again asked of the King . that he should
in the future refuse to authorize the Prince of
Hohenzollern to accept the throne of Spain."
I persisted in my dematel uselessly, the King
of Prussia ended by saying " I neither can
um will enter into any such engagement."
He wishes to await events. In
Ta,' , of an " enjesti " refusal we
(lid not break oh - negotiations despite
y Jur legitimate impatience. We requested a
tre,h delay, hut our sorb (-lee wee great whet
e e were told that the hit,; of Prussia would
10 longer receive our Ariebte•eariore, and to
:Lake his refusal definite. he had given lauqee
of such refusal to other,.enwers. Moreover,
!she King of Prus s ia bed rig ut-sced M. Wer
titer to withdraw. We have neglected nothing
to avoid war; we Low prepare cur:ielves to

know that, he hicdtly approved of the .Prince's
withdrawal, and that he considered tiencefor-•

This course of. proceeding on the part of the•
King certainly does not seem very courteocis t i

explained away. What carinet be questioned''
is that its publication in Paris has protinced'
