Mr. Dallas stated thatritf sett& of these' di vi./-ions a hundred names 'had been stricken 611-. • , Judge Allison repeated the suggestion made early in the week, that the Court could not interfere with this matter in this way. He referred to rife fact that to this application for a mem/mutts the pleadings on the other Side might, send the cases to a jury upon a question of fact, and hence the relief sought would be postponed. Mr. Dallas said that he had examined the subject very carefully, and would 'like au op portunity to satisfy the Court that a man deems was the proper remedy. It might be that the defendants, by their retuftror answer, would put the case 171 a position to admit of a demurrer, and they could argue the case at once. If, however, the case was sent to a jury, the coinplainants would, at least, have taken the preliminary steps to recover dama ges at the action at law. To do all this the • complainants must take advantage of all the opportunities presented by the law. Judge Allison Youtuight as well come in here on election day and ask u 4 to compel the election officers to receive or reject a vote !" Mr. Dallas still contended that a mandamus was the only remedy, and by using it now the men who have been disfranchised may be re stored before election day. Thiti is not a'pri vate• matter, but one affecting the community at lathe, and involving questions of great im portance when legal voters to the extent of oue hundred in a precinct have been disfran chised. Mr. Mann said be bad seen the Canvassers last eveniig and had informed them that the Court in a previous case-e had decided. that t here could be nevem/amps against them. It should•not be forgotten that the Canvassers have Closed their work and have ceased to he offieers. Their lists have been sealed up, and be'lthew of no power to open theta now. If the other side, or the Court, would suggest some plan by which the parties could get to getle r and rectify mistakes, he would be glad to assist. lie thought that where it was shown that names had been improperly stricken off they Ciught to be restored, but he did not un- dersiand how it could be done at this time. Judge Allison stated that if Judge Ludlow thought there was a possibility that an argu ment would changelhe opinion of the Court, he would agree to meet tomorrow morning and hear the ga.sediseussed: SulLsequently J udge Ludlow was consulted,. and ho agreed 'to come into the Commoul Pleas tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock and hear an argument. A correspondent of the St. Louis Repubhcaii at Marshall, Missouri, gives the following in stance as illustrating the manner in Which they do things in that quarter "A negro boy was brought to-day before the proper tribunal, accused of attempted rape on the person of a white lady. During tikp after noon our sheriff',-.John W . a11,-was notifitici that law had been threatened,.and answered that he was aware of it,mul would be prepared. At about eight o'clock P. M. it was raining slightly and very dark. The writer, with- a friend, went - to the jail and found Omit twenty-five persons there. There was a quiet conversation going on between the sheihr and the little party in front of the jail. The leader of the party demanded in thel dark the de livery of the prisoner. The sheriff inforined them that be was sheriff of Saline county, but that he could not fight a mob. This was all in rather a pleasant tope of conversation. In few moments I saw it light in the stairway, ,pf* the jail, and. four or five persons cable doWn with the prisoner ; I heard nothing more from the sheriff; there was no. excitement mani fested. The prisoner was ; led -to a grove alfout three hundred yards from the jail. Here there seemed to be a split in the party, and; after questioning the pristiner, was led back over half way to the jail. A committee hume diately'waited on the sheriff (who was iu his office quietly-talking to some of his friends), mid advised him of the split in thO' little party of law-breakers, anti asked him to gd' and maintain order. • HiS reply was that it was the buSiness of the leading men of the town.

G.—The following letter has Just been received from the New York Ilrefeld correspondent at the headquarterS of the tier= than army : VEnsmi.r.xs, Oct; - P.—A few days ago the headquarters of the* King of Prussia were re moved to Versailles. An order has been b-:,ued that none but the officers and men on duty shall enter the palaCe, but Mpg W e-il - pass opens all the - doors and to all - parts of the lines except immediately around Paris, where the 'aermaue are fortifying. Historical Rtmultoisicences.. •Thifi visit of _King William to the palace of Versailles has proved quite interesting.' On entering the ground floor that old monkey, VOHaire, hails the enemies of France, seem ing to remind him of his literary victories over the great Frederick. A step furtherland a host of Prussian military officers are Seen peering into chambers filled:. with the most interesting and thrilling of 'historical paint ings in existence. Here are ; represimtations of the campaigns of Napoleon the First. HOW calk we compare them with the campaigns of the other Napoleon we have personally seep? We. have seen. Sedan, but look yonder at Ulm and ita,-glciries. Here, too, we see the: great conqueror towering over the Prussian .Queen and over Berlin itself. The , Pritssian ollicerk were tickled whop they saw the paintings re presenting &Henn° and the ltifalakoffand the taking of _Mexico. There were the new colors and g =lo'r:tines tottering and clattering oviir the prim but now faded glories of the second empire. ti lld linuniotls The wildest rumors were prevalent at Ver sailles two, days ago. I was assured by the Icrench peasants that, a great battle was - in iirogmss between the forces of 'Prince Frede rick Charles and those of Bazaine. On the same authority 1 learned that an army of 120,- 000 men from the south of France Was ad vancing rapidly upon Versailles. The truth is that no movement of an aggressive character has been attempted by the French, or will be for some time to comely ever. pros...inn Preparations. Meantime the Gellman _ army is quietly and industriously entrenching and fortifying the porn ions occupied by them, apparently, with a view to a 16ng2, stay. -- Their earthworks are intended to rcsist sorties rather than' to be used in an active attack upon Paris. Still, rumors are corxent in the camp, and, are, doubtless, true, that heavy siege guns are 'to be brought up and mounted on the heights of Meudon and Clamart in order to silence Fort d'lssy, which . threatens to give. trouble. _Renner, it is said, makes the assault on that ivarvq: but it, is less easy to take th 6 tort than to attack it. . _ . A False Alarm. Continiuil alarms occur along the lines of. the besieging army, which, however, are natural enough in the course of things war- . like. Yesterday some otlicerB galloped up to the howie where I spent the night. bringing to the division general the startling intelli gence that an advance upon their lines was 'wing made by the French. Within ten, minutes crowds -of Prussian so) iers,: their helmets and bayonets glitterimi the light. were Marching in theAirectionlm gated, fol lowed by an artillery train and the baggage, ambulance and ammunition wagons. The stall soon after got up, and, with their trap pings, made an imposing force. The Prussian division was soon under way and ready for action ; but there was no enemy toght, and it returned to camp much like the firemen of New York after a false alarm. Desultory Firing. It must not be imagined that all is quiet and safe here because no great movement is at present contemplated. Along the front in every direction the constant desultory firing. of musketry and the occasional biasing . and explosion of shells and the heavy boom of cannon are• the normal sounds. Wounded men are constantly brought in. It is rare, in fact, that the firing is not without effect. What Bismarck Doesnot-Bestre. I was told to-day, on boo authority. that Count Bismarck has not the slightest inten tion to interfere iu Italian politics, and does not desire to inherit the legacy of the French empire. Where the Attack Will be Mule. The near approach of the King to the be leaguered city, occasioned by his change of headquarters, has created quite a bustle here. It seems, also, to fully contirtn the general be lief that the advance upon Paris, when made, will be from the direction of the southwest. [By Mail.l GENERAL W.ARNEWS. Prussian Bale in Alsace and Lorraine The Prussian civil Governor of Alsace has issued a proclamation to the Catholic, Pro testant and Jewish clergy. It declares that all are to retain their present rights and stipends. The Church will not be interfered with by the State ; but ecclesiastics preaching, speaking or acting against existing authorities will be pun ished by Military law. A large police force has been sent to Alsace and German Lorraine, where a regular gov ernment is now established. • The Last ISlghs of a Ifatighty Natter'. The Gaidois gives the following extract from a letter written b 7 the person charged by MaeMabon to Carry • deSpatches to Marshal Bazaine : . _ - - - _ On the evening of the battle of Sedan, at half-past tour, the Prince of Saxony, who was at La Chapelle, a little illagenear the Belgian frontier, said to some persons of that nation: " You hear, gentlemen, those last cannon shots ; well, they are the last sighs of that, haughty France, that' nation once so great and so proud!" No, Prince, wha', you beard, was only the list sigh of tile empire.. And you would have no doubt on the subject were you to hear the cryy_ which for a week past has resounded from one end of France to the other, the same that was pronounced by our.'fathers in 1792; and which made Europe " The country is in -danger—to arms!",l went through the streets of Sedan the whole night, and gave , the word, " Eery one to'PariS." There were at Sedan ., about 55,000 prisoners ; but in the course of the night 12,000 escaped. The Prussians killed about 200 of them, but the restgot oft Several officers succeeded in gaining Belgium in plain clothes, and the train which brought me to Paris held about sixty who had got away Without anything. The Prussians have not taken a single. French flag. All of ours were concealed or burned. I myself saved three from Sedan. - Paris and Strasbourg Compared.. The circumference Of StraSbourg is- only about four milesi. while that of Paris is over twenty-one. The former place has but seven. gates, a shall garrison and 60,000 inhabitants. The capital has fifty-seven entrances, is de fended by 400,000 soldiers, seamen and Gardes Mobiles, and notwithstanding Abe :migration of a part of the population contains least .a million and a half of souls. Strasbourg has but one citadel, while the nutaber of forts around Paris is 18 Taking •es the basis for a, caletthy tion the armahient eniployell against the for tress in the Bas Bhin, there would be required for Paris 800 guns, ,200 wt!gons , tincl,B9Q.,tons, .of projectiles. But such - is far "from the truth, for, as is well known, the efforts 'of the,. be siegers have td - he increased iu direct ratio uot Only to the size of the place, but also •in pro portion to the resources of the men, war ma terial and , stores which"; it -possesses. The Cologne Gazette sets down the cost of the FRI DAY, - OCTOBE - R 7,,-1870. siege of Strasbourg for ammunition, trans ports and rations which cannot be obtained by requisitions,' at nearly 1,000,000 francs daily. The outlay before. Paris will not, there fore, amount to less than 12,000,000. 'A.t Sebastopol the allies spent 3,000,000,000 or .1,00,600,000 franks, and were supported by their fleets, and could' only invest a part of the town. Will the Prussians alone, therefpre, be able , to obtain po4iession of Paris? or yVill not be siege rather ruin entirely Prussia and Ger many ? The losses sustained at Stra.slionm ae c now known, and are, much less considera, hle than have been stated.

Florio's of the War. Mr. Fleury Kingsley, the well-known author / awl a man of igundoubte4 veracity, writes to the Pull Malt Gazette as follows of ihe, brutalities committed by soldiery in France: There is no more need to mention what the troops so full of regard for humanity' did at Bazeilles. All have seen the burned corpses of men, women and children lying close to those of pigs, sheep, cattle and horses; and some of them have seen, a couple of days later, German soldiers taking their meals" or sleeping close by the still smokitig bodies as quietly as if it were round a bivouac. fire. And this deliberate and cool-headed exter mination of several hundreds of dwellings and families was the result of a rumor that some one had shut_frem‘ki window__ l of one of the houses upon the German sol diers. - A house having been pointed out where this shot came from, its proprietors,a woman of fifty and a man of .sixty, *ere tied tbgether.dragged through the whole borough, and shot at one of • its ends. The same fate was reserved to a priest, and the same gaud for humanity' paid co hint consequent on the unprove4 rumor. that some one had tired on the troops from the -church. All the , stock . of the country, down to the last calf, has been taken away by those who are reported to pay such wonderful considerations to indi vidual rights. The same must be said with re gard Valle products of the harvest. There is uo mot le" a single grain either of corn or any thing else to be found. anywhere where the warriors have passed. Still more so is it with regard to wine and beer. Provincial people in France generally, and in the rich province of the Ardennes especially, have each of them' a niore or less large cellar. All of these "have been broken into, mull* contents absorbed, carried away, or ponied out into the streets. challenge any one . to find a single house on the whole of the road from Sedan to Carignan . which has not been ray: aged and plundered-from from the, cellar to_. the root'. Tim e-pi ems, women's dresses and-linen, curtains, even piecei; of furnitUre, are taken away as it they are military necessaries; and, Wheu concealed by the inhabitantsi exacted at the muzzle of a pistol or the point of a . lance. And this is not done by individual Sol- , iners, but. by large' parties commanded by officers, who appear to be particularly fond of silver plate. - jewelry and laces. How ever large the • amount of provisions exacted from the country is, the Prus sians do not seem' to be inclined to feed - their prisoners: All along the road from Sedan are daily carried large parties of French prisoners : so hungry ands° sick that many fall on -the road and are handed to a French or an English ambulance. All the English medical men to whom I spoke 'here had not a single word to say in favor of the Prussians: A young.. surgeon testified in my presence that on several occasions Prussians'-had boasted before him of having violated French women, and that offi cers of considerable rank came to his ambu lance making a noise,attempting to take away horses, and eating, under the pretekt of inquiring into their quality, provisions sent out from England for the wounded. Dr. Frank and Dr. Blewit' told me that they had at Balan several case of French wounded who had butt-end bruisi di over their bodies and races, having been i,. used by the Prus ians for not being able to march when they 'were ordered to do so, notwithstanding their sufferings from shell, and bullet wounds. One of these poor men can still be seen at the ambu lance of the Cale de l'Harmonie, with a severe shell-wound in his leg, and with hisface blue and black from the kind treatment of the Berlin and Munich civilizers. Dr.• Sims and Dr. MacCormac will testily that they bad to work for more than three hours at the Caserne d'Asfeld, at Sedan, under a rain of shells and bullets, the Prussians firing at the ambulance notwithstanding the red cross flying in seve ral places over the caserne, situated on a hill of the citadel commanding the whole country around Sedan. * * If Germany remains victorious there will be for several years to come no possibility of peace fully living in any spec where a dozen Germans are to be found : and, as ;they are to be found everywhere, there will be little prospect of comfortable existence at all. If, on the contrary, they , have a somewhat sensible defeat under the walls of Paris, the whole country in their rear will rise ; every woman, every child, in France will take a knife, and very few Germans will see their fatherland again. Of this the peasants begin to speak, already quite openly to any one whom' they can believe not to be a Prussian. Prussian Account of the Deu'eueracy of, the lereheh Soldiers. Herr Wachenhusen, in an article iu the Co logne Gazette, thud gives hisf opinion on the French soldiers, the result, he states, of his observations in the Crimea and Italy, as well as in the present .war It may Sound rash, but I assert" that the French soldier, such as he is, will gain no vic tory over troops like the Germans, either to day or to-morrow, still less; for the degeneracy will but increase, a few years hence. The rule of France is played out;l.t will remain quiet by the Rhine. The country, which' yearly, through the artificiality of its manner of life, its dissipations and its obsti nate -destruction of human life, is depopulated, and whose pdeple are physically declining; that country, aftdr this tearful and bloody lesson, will have to give up any serUans thought of conquest in Geriiiimy. The Frach soldier, through his mode of life has lost all military, virtues,,, his discipline is relaxed and his ambition stunted. k„am..as sured that when the French soldiers marched thrdi'igh•Rheima they tired of the weight of their guns, threw them away, and scornfully laughed in their officers' faces. Everywhere 1 have found proofs of the vandalism which the French soldiers have exhibited in all the, villages and towns of their own country. I - have met civilians who openly con fessed they would rather have twenty Prussians as foes than five French men as defenders. As. to the want of vigilance of the French army, we saw an instance of it at Beaumont, where, at bright midday, our troops surprised a large. French encampment at' . cooking which had not iftp pointed any sentinels. In the evening the meat, potatoes and rico in their saucepans, un derwhich the fires - still glimmered, showed me the way over the battlefield.

The pa- It Ilene° and endurance which our soldiers have shown when it was necessary to dispense With bread, mid even with water, would be incon ceivable to the French soldier. It is true; and I cannot stifficilmtlyeinpliasize the fact, that the French have fought ;bravely.; and who would not with such a weapon as the Chasse-, pot? But remember what I said of the little prelude at Saarbruek ; only when they are in masses do they give a smart fire. They also hold—:out in strong positions. But are these Military l virtues?. Where . our artillery actively prayed they always took 'to flight; their officers never had authority 'Over them. 'What we sufferedirom them—and God knows it is much—was owing to their tearful weapon,which.wasr death itself for our troops, and poured.in as thiek'as so that only a lucky nadent averted death or ' wounds. With such a weapon•in• their hands our Prussians would not, have lost any of the fine positions *hien the French have been driven from; The French civilians therdselves readily and veluktarily admit: "We French are no longer solMiers,atleast against such ene mies as the G er mans. Peace should,therefainhe given us. France is big enough. God only grant . that it does not become smaller !" 0 , To sum up, Napoleon, the great strategist, undertook a war with au army of at most 300.000 to :21,0,000 men; including the ' Garde Mobile, which was first called up on the 16th of - August. • Napoleon himself the generalissi mo, the great theoftst,.showed that he under stood • nothing at all of the art of war. His generals quarreled like street urchins; one of them showed himself still more incompetent - than another; not one of them had talent or made an opportunity anyliirefeto distinguish_ himself. THE FRENCH PEOPLE AND NAPO• LEON. Anti.Bonapartiht Feeling in Normandy. I was greatly struck, writes Dr. RMseli, throughout my long course, at the, desolate ari; pearanee of Normandy. . Those extensive plains about Bonen, which areenerally peopled with herds of oxen thick as daisies iu a meadow, showed now only a very few, just enough for the inimediate reserve of the large city. Further on among the rich, beautiful meadows. of Normandy, three or four bullocks or Cows were Otte a rare sight, and literally I only Saw two flocks of sheep in all the dis tance between Rouen and Alenion. All along the line everybody talked to his -neighbor about the war. Private 4oldiers with third-class tickets often got into first-elms cat: tinges for want of room elsewhere. They were eagerly questioned by passengers, and one and all joined in abuse of the es-Emperor. Men who had been at Sedan and had got to Rouen, by way of Douay, were thoroughly impressed with the belief that the Emperor and the Court Generals delighted in getting soldiers killed as.a revenge.:for the plebiscite, and that the dis graceful capitulation of Sedan was ordered by . the Eniperor for his own private purposes. In no single instance did I heat a voice raised in favor of a restoration. 'Tentatively, T said to several people that the Bonapartist party was working liar(' to get the Emperor back, arid that if the'King of Prussia seconded their ef forts there was no knowing butthat they might succeed. Nobody that I met with would for a moment admit the possibility of a restoration. Men, women and children, and soldiers joined in the unanimous opinion that come what might. France would never tolerate a Bona parte again, and that nothing 'Would so exak perate the.country againfit Prussia as the idea that she wanted toimpose their old, imbecile _and wicked ruler upon them again. A View of Metz. "At St. Blaize there is a battery of about ten guns. Prince Frederica - Charles has erected a telescope here, by means of which the German officers can see right into Metz. They would have allowed us to look through it, but the weather was too unfavorable for it to be Of any service. With the naked eye the whole'valley, surrounded by hills and with Metz in the centre, with its grand old cathe dral towering up, is clearly to be seen. Mas ses of troops are about on all sides, but from this noint there seems no reason why you should not walk into the city. The chaussie, with its fringes of poplars, is straight before you. It does not appear that there, is aught to hinder your entrance. But, stay, behind every bush, behind evetY,l_stone, stretched at full length in a ditchCniqAther'side of the valley around the city is a marksman. So - soon as any enemy comes within range there is a curl of white smoke, a crack of gun, and if the aim haS been true, one combatant the less on one side or the other. Apart from its warlike interest, thp view is magnificent." • NEGRO TESTIMONY IN KENTUCKY. A Relic or Slavery—Black Men Not Permitted to Give Evidence Against. IMELI=I3 The Louisville S'un has the following ac count of the action of the outrageous laws against uegroes kept on the statute books of Kentucky by the Democracy This morning, a white man, by the name of John Buke, was presented to the City Court charged with baying committed an as sault upon a negro named Benjamin Hanley.

The Attorney, somewhat surprised, said: " Will you not hear them?" to which the Judge said, "Of course not rt He went on to state that, being Judge of one of the Courts of this Com monwealth he bad to be governed by the con stitution and statutes of the State, which posi tively prohibited a negro from giving testi mony in a case where the party on trial was a white person, aridthat he had sworn toupliold the laws and constitutions of the State. The Attorney then remarked, in a kind of an in timidating way, that there was a law which said that this kind of testimony should be re cei vrd. Judge Price held the same position that has been held by the Circuit Judge, and also the Court of Appeals ; that while the State Constitution remains as it is at present, . the courts, of the . State cannot admit, negro testimony againstxt white person. Holding this groimd, the party was discharged,as there were no persons who saw the difficulty except the Degrees, whose testimony the Judge de eided,that, he had no right to admit. ➢IIOUNT VERNON.
