A special Paris correspondent cor-respondent telegraphs, on Saturday evening: There wjs serious engagements engage-ments this morning between the government gov-ernment troops and the communists. About two thousand national guards marched on Courbevoie and were met by gens d' armea and guards. Fristeras, captain of the latter, galloped up, waiving his cap, intending to address ad-dress the communists, when a zouave with that body shot him dead. A general action followed in which the gens d' armes took five prisoners, one seventy-six years old, who were shot immediately. The guns of fort Valerien swept the road. The communists fled. Twenty-five insurgents were killed and many wounded. The engagement en-gagement was over at one o'clock. Nationals still hold Porte Millot Bat talions of artillery are hurrying up. The rappel is beating and the ramparts ram-parts are being manned. The greatest excitement prevails. The same correspondent telepraphs from Versailles .on Sunday evening: "A crisis is at hand. Two battalions are in motion on the Paris road and ambulances are all ready. Bismarck has given permission for any number of troops to be massed near Paris, and says if order is not restored in Paris by. the 15th instant, the Germans will enter. This news isreliable." New York, 3. The following associated asso-ciated press ' dispatch was received this morning: Paris, Sunday evening, via London, 6 a.m., 3.' Fighting has been going on since yesterday even ing at various points. In the Place de la Concorde, this morning, cannonading cannon-ading in the direction of Neuilly was distinctly heard. The fortress Mont Valerien opened upon the columns of nationals, which were marching on Courlevoie, and kept up a continuous fire for several hours to prevent them from establishing themselves in position posi-tion there. The nationals were finally compelled to retreat with considerable loss. The London Times special says, the fighting at Courbevoie was sharp. .The reports of who fired first are conflicting. The nationals were first driven into Courbevoie, where they maintained themselves' for some time protected by the houses, but at last were shelled out by Valerien and fall back to the bridge Neuilly, whe"e they kept up a hot fu-silade.. fu-silade.. From this position they were again forced to return, and finally withdrew with-drew into the city and shut the gates. The Versailles troops did not attempt to follow. The estimate, probably exaggerated, ex-aggerated, puts the loss of the nationals na-tionals at two hundred. The government govern-ment troops shot prisoners as rebels. The popular indignation against the Versailles government is terrific. The nationals threaten to attack Versailles. London, G:30 a.m., 3. Victoria visits vis-its Napoleon at Chuslehurst to-day. Ottawa, Out, 3. The Honorable Tupmaa during the debate on the subject sub-ject of British Columbia, on Saturday, argued that the superiority of the Can-' adian route for a Pacific railroad was indisputable, and that the alternate blocks of land, which would be the property of the government, would realize enough to discharge its pecuniary pecuni-ary obligations respecting the railway. He expressed the belief that the Northern North-ern Pacific Co., who would have nearly a thousaud miles of desert to run through, would never, seeing Canada was determined to push her road to that ocean, go on with their work beyond be-yond Pembina. They would extend their line from Georgetown to Pembina aud then to Red Kiver, but it would never be thought to be carried further west, in view of the far superior prospect pros-pect of our Dominion road. Berlin, 3.
