Peace or War Question—Rumors
—Alliance Between France and
Spain—Napoleon at Camp Cha
By Telegraph to the Pittsburgh Gazette.:
Lo'snow, Sept. 12.—1 t is general:y con
sidered that the events of the last forbarght
have - made little change in the political con
dition on the Continent, either to lessen or
increase the chances of war. While on the
one hand , the press of Germany have as;
sumed a quieter tone and profess to be
more confident of peace, on the other
hand it is known that France has re
fused a formal demand made by Chev
alier Nigra, the Italian Ambassador,
for the recall of the French troops
from Rome; and at the same time Prince
Girgent has brought to Paris the proposal
of Spain to cement an alliance with Prance
by sending 30,000 soldiers ti) Rome. This
proposition, and.the approaching interview
which is shortly to take place at Bayonne
between Emperor Napoleon and the Queen
of Spain, are looked upon as foreshadowing
an alliance, the object. of which is to rid
France of the care of the Holy See, in case
she should be plunged into war, so that by
this means France, if without any
other ally, conid make Spain useful.
There are rumors, too, that several
fighting r..gimtnts have been recalled from
Africa, that General Leboufe has been sent
on a special missiep to Germany, and that
Prussia has deterfßined to annex the Grand
Duchy of Ba . en, added to the _feeling of
distrust in the permanence of the existing
peace. This feeling is faithfully mirrored
in Paris by the deprea-ion on the Bourse,
and the consequent decline of rentes. In
diplomatic circles here the situation is
pithily summed up in these words: No fear
of war, though it may begin to-morrow.

Return of the Firemen •from Ohio.
The Neptune, Niagara and ReliefFlre com
panies returned from Sandusky, on Satur
day, where they were attending - In Ohio
State Firemen's tournament...kr,eport is cur
rent that the Neptune boys were engaged in
a "riot" at Sandusky and that they "cleaned
out the town In a mu cular way," and
moreover that the Sheriff of, the town had
to "read to them, the riot act" before or
der was restored. This is a gross slander,
as no such occurrence took place. The Nep
tune members, :like their fellow firemen.
from this city, conducted theiriselws in
n - manner calculated - to reflect credit to
themselves and the department .at home.
They wire, sa a body, engaged in no street
fight or exhibition of rowdyism, but con
ducted themselves in a gentlemanly and
orderly manner, making inanyfriends and
winning, with the Relief and Niagara, de
served p audits from the of Sandusky.
• From oar own view. withorit hearing our
own representatives conipl4n,. we must
say that the firemen and Citizens of San
dusky in their treatment of their visitors
•ezhiiiited a sorry lack of hospitality. Oar
boys paid their way to and from - there for
a•-ices and engine, paid hotel' bills. and
their way into ball rooms dances
were Riven in their honor! ,The Neptune
competed for the prize for first-class steam
engine and were -- refused the premium of
$lOO. although throwing much further than
any rival. The Judga held over his deci
sion, but as.tie would not award the proper
Measurement,233 feet to the Neptune, owing
to the. fact - that the stream blew
over the paper line, wetting 'the soil
beyond, and did award 223 feet to an Ohio
'company, it - is probable the• finalt decision
will go that way through State pride. Toe
Neptune boys, however, brought home a
m nificerit silver horn'as a prize. Of the
- heroic conduct of the Relief dire :company
at a destructive fire in Cleveland - on Friday
the Heraldof that city says:."The Relief
Fire Company of Pittsburgh; ori its way
home from Sandusky . ; turned out with the
true fireman's;instinct,and generesity, and
worked vigorous v, shouldet to 'shoulder
`with the Cleveland firemen.""
