SCRAPS OF T1IK WAR. Chit ef the diu of battle who would think of ratherinp a French tribute to Charles Pickens ! Yet we read that when the 3rd regiment of Voltigeura of the Imperial Guard marched out of Paris they were followed by their dog "PkjKCVuique." The Gauloi gives a list of the Danish Dan-ish fleet, which it hones ere long will co-operate with the French. It con-sirts con-sirts of one screw steamer of 300-horse power and sixty-four guns; five iii-State?, iii-State?, averaging from thirty-two to SAy-fix guns; one corvette, armor clad, isf fif:een guns; three corvettes of twelve guns, seven iron gunboats of two gaus. Metis i-s full of the members of the kgion for nursing the wounded. I hese gentlemen wear a red cross on a white ground, on their left arm. The imperial im-perial printing establishment has also arrived. Compositors, printers and the Kterary element all wear a green uniform, and some of them very long i swords, which are continually getting between their legs, in an exeeedingly unmilitary manner, much to the amusement of the town's folk. The Empress telegraphed to the Emperor, saying that she desired to 50 to Metz to see him, to embrace her son, and to show herself to the army, and endeavor to increase the-nthusi-asm of the war, as it is apt to be increased in-creased in such cases by a woman's presence. The Emperor replied, thanking her for her wishes and intentions, in-tentions, but requesting her not to carry those out, as he should have left I Metis before she could arrive there, ; and he was unable to tell her where sho could find him. It is a curious fact, of which no really satisfactory -explanation has ever been siven, that as firearms are rendered more and core deadly, war becomes less and less destructive to human life. At Borodino the loss was one third of all the men engaged. At Waterloo it was one-fourth. At Inkerman, where there was neither a rifled cannon nor a breech loader on the field, the English lost one-third. At Magenta and Sol-ferino, Sol-ferino, with, vastly better weapons, the casualties were one-eleventh : at Chat-tanoogo Chat-tanoogo one-thirteenth ; while at Con- - iggratz, where the terrible needle-gun eau.-ed such, consternation, the losses were only one-iwenty-third. The war is making a great deal of - trcv.blo for people traveling in Europe, and especially in the neighborhood of the Rhine. .A private letter from Ber-Kn Ber-Kn gives an. amusing account of the helter-skelter . manner in which the tourists tried tc get away from the watering places, end of their bewilderment bewilder-ment when they found that the railroads rail-roads were monopolized by the government govern-ment People st-cod all day long and waited, trying . fcr tickets, standing fiom -jaorning till evening, without be-ins; be-ins; able even to reach the ticket offices for the, rush. Baggage lost and left behind. In one place four hundied trunks were left, vrkh all the brilliant summer toilets, and silks, and laces, and jewels. Imagine the dismay of the fair ownars of all these brilliant toilets - at being obliged to abandon them. If trey co'M g tnH of J.nu Kapolecn, he would doubtless wish that the Prussians had him.
