The Enropcau War.
During Iho week past the French and
Prussians have had several skirmishes
two of them being of some importance.
On the 3d Inst,, the French made an at
tack upon Saarbruck coming of victori
ous. The French profess to attach con
siderable importance to the victory but the
tenor of their despatches to the French
capital indicate that the movement was
made for the effect it might have on the
public, and on the recruits in camp. The
following is tho English accouut of the
"A. correspondent, who is indorsed by
the Loudon Time as. trustworthy and
neutral, gives the following interesting
details of tho battle of Saarbruck, The
French made some prisoners but captur
ed no cannon. They lost 40 killed and
.CO wouuded. The French force in bat
tle Was estimated at 30,000 men and the
Prussian at only 0000. Tho artillery
won the fight. Thero was but littlo in
fantry and no cavalry engaged. It was
tho Fifty-ninth Prussian IJegiment, and
not the Fif'tietfi, as before reported, which
was engaged in-the battle. Three com
panies of tho fortieth held their ground
against the French until tho lattcr's force
fully developed their strength. Tho small
force of Prussians then' retired."
This slight victory of the French was
however more than overbalanced by the
fight which occurred on the day following,
when tho Prussians made an advance on
tae fortress of Wcissenburg, tho result
of which is told in a dispatch given be-'
low, which was received in lierlin on the
5th inst. :
The following despatch has been r
ooived herefrom Neiderottcrbach, a small
village on Lauter river, near Weissenburg
dated b o clock on 1 hursday evening :-
" We have won a bloody but brilliant
victory The left wing was tho attacking

A Desperate Highway robber.
About 10 o'clock on the iilJth ult.,
Joseph McCarthy, residing in New
York was approached by a young
man, who, without a word, walked up to
him and drove a knife up to the hilt into
his shoulder. In tlio meantime throwing
his victim on the ground, he attempted
to rifle his pockets. .McCarthy, although
badly wounded struggled desperately and
.-ucceeded in beating his assailant off, but
not before he had received several more
cuts in tho shoulder. Finally as the
fellow made a desperate plunge, Mr.
McCarthy gave him a severe kick iu the
stomach, causing the knife to fly out of
his assailant s hands. In the meantime
.McCarthy possessed himself of the knife
and the fellow teeing himself disarmed
ran into a saloon near by, succeeded iu
getting a number of tumblers, which he
tired with terrible cfloct and woundnm

attempted to get possession of McCarthy's

ensued. McCarthy got the fellow under

the coveted pocket-book. Tho wounded

An Important Distinction.
Dutchmen, or Hollanders, iu this
country are very often called Germans
while the difference) in Rationality and
language is almost as great as that
between English and French people.
Dutchmen are Hollanders, natives of that
industrious and illustrious little nation
from whence came the first settlers iu N.
York city and State. Holland, or the
Netherlands, is a kingdom independent
from any other Power, governed now by
William III, of Orange. Never has Hol
land been a part of Germany, though in
tho sixteenth ccutury the Earl of Hol
land was also King of Spain and Emperor
of Germany, so that they could be called
just as well Spaniards as Germans. As
for the language, though thero are a
very few words in the German language
that are the same or sound like tho same
in Dutch, a German cannot understand
the Holland language, neither can a
Dutchman the German, unless ho has
had the necessary instruction.
D3T Arkansas has a celebrated will
case, which has been hanging iu the
courts for thirtoen years. The jury at
Marion, Ark., recently brought iu a veN
diet for tho defendant, when tho opposing
counsel demanded that the judge should
cause the jury to be polled, and it was
accordingly so ordered. Three names
had boon oalled, and tho question' " Is
this your verdict?" addressed to the
fourth, a man named Mitchell, but before
he could reply he uttered a kaeu, sharp
Bcroara, as if in mortal agony, and drop
pod apparently lifeless. Every effort
waa made to restore him, but at last ac
counts he was still unable to speak, and
the great will case of Lacklad vs. Jones
i still in abeyance. The doctors pro
uouuee his disease apoplexy. If be dies
before answering the. question, the whole
case will have to be mod over again.
It is aeldoui we hear of people driven
by hunger to steal-entering the house in
the night, and after satisfying the cra

the case a few nights ago, when a party

Mr. llobert White, i t the corner of six
teenth and Main streets, Kamai City.
After effecting an entrance they proceed
ed to work in a systematic manner empty

and taking pics an cakes out of pans
and plates, carrying off nothing but food.
Though the bureau and wardrobes were

ffrThe valet-like habit of calling
women " ladies," and men 'gentlemen,"
indiscriminately, is quietly satirized in
the New York Vitiznt. which in a word of
advice to the " sales-ladies" and "sales

lot. reminds them of the privations of
' other work-ladies and gentlemen."

The " Pain-Killer."
The foreign and domestic demand tor Terry Pa
vis & Son's great medicine thf l'aln Killer was
never before so large as It lias been of late; and w
think the time has arrived when the declaration
may be made, without the possibility of refutation,
that the city of Providence, hi the State of Khod
Island, of the United States of America, has fur
nished the habitable globe with a medicine, whleh,
In point of universality of demand, extent of use- '
fulness, complete efficiency for all the purposes for
which it Is designed and wide spread, enduring
popularity, has never been equalled by any medi
cine In Europe or America.
The universality f the demand for the Tain
Killer, Is n novel, Interesting, and surprising fea
ture In the history of thlsmcdiclne. Its "fainehas
gone out," into every quarter of the habitable
globe. The l'aln Killer is now regularly sold In
large and steadily increasing quantities, not only
to general agents hi every State and Territory of
the Union, and every Frouinceof British America,
but to Buenos Ayres, Brazil. Uraguay, Peru, Chill
and other South American States to the Sandwich
Islands; to England and Continental Europe; to
Mozambique. Madagascar, Zanzibar and other
African lands: to Australia and Calcutta, Kan goon
i.nd other places in India. It has also been sent to
China, and we doubt If there is any foreign port or
Inland city in Africa or Asia, which is frequented
by American and European missionaries, travellers
or traders. Into which the l'aln Killer has not been
introduced and been sought after.
The extent of Us usefulness is another great fea
ture of this remarkable medicine. It Is not only
the best thing ever known, as everybody will con
fess, for bruises, cuts, burns, &c, but for dysen
tery or cholera, or any sort of bowel complaint it
is a remedy unsurpassed for elliciency and rapidi
ty of action. In the great cities of British India,
and in the West India Islands and other hot cli
mates it has become the standard medieine for all
suoh complaints, as well as for dyspepsia, liver
complaints and other kindred disoiders. lor
coughs and colds, canker, asthma and rheumatic
dilliculties, it has been proved by the most abund
ant and convincing trials and testimony, to be ;iu
invaluable medicine. The proprietors arc iu pos
session of letters from persons of the hlghestchar
acter and responsibility, testifying, in unequivocal
terms, to tho cures effected and the satisfactory
results produeed, in an almost endless variety of
cases, by the use of tkis great medicine. l'rov.
