been done which warrants a hope for the

to intersect the chamber where all the
men are entom ••. They will probably
reach this olta .er about five or " six
o'clock this afternoon. Old and expe
rienced miners fear that all are lost, but
there are some who hope that the closing
of the doors of the passages leading from
the shafts nes prevented the circulation
of fire or choke damp and confined all
the gaseous matter to 'the shaft • itself.

the extreme. Thousands of people are
present, and ethers are arriving. The

afternoon, and before night it is thought
the extent Of the calamity will be known.

and then lowered lights to within fifteen
feet of the bottom of the shaft. The

ANOTHER REPORT PROM BELOW.
I P. sr... The second party of men .re
turned safely as had the first. They
penetrated- the gangway a distance of
seventy-Ave feet and foubd the large
door wide open. They then went 'one
hundred feet Anther in one of the pass
ages and found a small door olowl.
After opening this door; .to give a
circulation of air around to the _en
trance, they, returned. Had tide awed :
door been opened, there might have
been a ahada4" hope, as the gas and
smoke and fire-would have been passing
around the circuit anB - 6 - ut again. As it
is, the fears are that Ithltolunoke has pen
etrated-the inner mine and suffocated
all the men. The main doorway leading
to the mute has not yet heeu reached,
A TWED DASCENT-TWO XEN OVERIXODI
. The third set of men, four in number,
went siown and cause baclln fifteen min
utes, two of, them so overcome with the
effects of gas that they are being restor
ed with, difficulty. The gas Is coming
out of the outer mine very fast since the
passage way was paned. The wildest
excitement prevai lsand the mass of peo
ple aro kept back th great difficulty.
TILE LAST 'NOTE GONE:
baD p...X.—The two tidier; are saved .
at last. It seems ifil to . peril life,by any
fiirther attempt to go down iis long as
the gas Is so strong. No attempt ban of
course be made to reach the main
Idoor, or to penetrate •the mine until
the outer gangway is cleared of gas. It
is uncertain how lung this will take.
There is really no ground to 'hope a sin

to be done but to recover the bodies.

Losnorr, September ft—The condition
Of Napoieores kealth commands univer,
gal attention. ;The inceir, reliable reports
received from Paris in this city to-day
reprelent the health of the Emperor as
unaltered, and not improved. He has
been quite weak during a couple of days
past, and not in sufficient strength or
tone to attend to business of any sort.
The nines, in an article on the French
situation, says: Many think Prince
NapOleon's speech was only a feeler to
arrive at a knowledge of 'men's minds.
If so, it wae promptly answered. The
clamor raised .places the real liberal
aspirations .. of France beyond a
doubt. The Prince's speech may be
taken as the programme of the Imperial
•government, such as must arise when
the present men and principles are re
moved, and when the constitution is re
formed on the basis of national sover
eignty, municipal self-government and
rninisterial responsibility.. Prince Na
poleon's part lathe new order of things
depends on the. Chances of the Emperor's
recovery. Should the Emperor live, a
liberal Ministry, with Prince Napoleon
at the head, would be an experiment
worth trying. - If the Emperor's absence
from the Cabinet is to be indefinitely
prolonged, it is ',difficult to see who
could dispute the lieutenancy of the
Empire, with Prince Napoleon. The
present crisis in . France cannot be with
out grave;conseqUencas, and the 'Prince
has placed himself in aposition which
it will be no good. olley for the Emperor
to•dispense with or avoid him.
PARIS, Sept. 7.—The Journal Official

of the Emperor's health. saying the Em

has suffered some (ruin rhentitatlsm, but
at no time has his condition been such its
to cause the kaust anxiety. The sessions
of the Senate have closed.
Pun's, 'Septeinher 7—Evening. -The
Emperor will come to Paris to-morrow.
The La Prase says the condition of the
Eniperor has been improved a little since
yesterday. ( His strength has increased.

have exercised an unfavorable influence,
