In that time the Prussians have had one

these triumphs have progressed into
France for aomo fifty miles from the

The Massacre of Tientsin*.
A letter of Rev. Mr. Hartwell, pub
lished in the Macon Telegraph, has the
following upon the Massacre of Ticntsing
which oocured on the 21st June last:
You will bo horrified to bear of the
fearfal tragedy that has secured at Tient-
sing, the next port north oi this. The
people havo risen and butchered, in a
most brutal manner, the French Consul
and ten Roman Catholic Sisters of Mercy
gouging ont their eyes, cutting off tlieir
breasts, tearing out their hearts and rip
ping them up the full length of their
tims, many' _
subjects. Altogether there were twenty-
three (23) French and Russians murdered,
and upwards of forty native Roman
Catholic convert*!. The Russians were
mistaken for Frenchmen.
The whole thing seems to have been
deliberately planned. No Germans, En
glish or Americans were injured. Two
brides—one French and one Russian—
were killed in a most shocking manner.
Not only the Sisters were inangled, but
the other women ns well. Some were
burned afterwards, and some were thrown
into the river. The Consulate, the Ca
thedral, Hospital, eta; were burned.
The pretext for the riot was a repent
that the Sisters of Mercy were in the
habit of stealing child m aud pin
out their eyss to make opium, and
hearts to make photographic chemicals.
The foundation for this report was the
fact that there was * JL C. hospital
where the Sisters gathered together all
tho outcast and dying children, to save
them, if they could, or if they could not.
to sprinkle -them and save their souls.
Of course n great many pitch children
died on their hands.

Chassefot and Needle Gun.—The
Paris Temps gives the following:
1 Range and efficacy of the weapon!
The velocity of the ball ol the chassepot
in passing out of the mouth of the piece
is 420 metres; that of the needle gun is
only 257. As the resalt of the enormons
difference in the initial velocities of the
two balls, it follows that at 500 metres
tho Prussian ball is neariy “spent,”
while at 1,000 metres the French ball
kills almost certainly, disables at 1,000
metres, and may still do service at a dis
tance of 1,600 or 2,000 metres.
2. Accuracy of aim. The accuracy of
the French aim is greater at a distance
of 1,000 metres than that of the Prussians
at 500. The bridge of the first is grad
uated up to 1,200 metres, while that of
the second only goes up to 550 (800 Pros-
3. Rapidity of firing. The French gun
requires four movements for loading, the
Prussian five, so that the chasaepots can
be fired from twelve to thirteen times a
minute, and the needle' gun only eight
or nine during the same time.
4. The fourth point claims that the
Prussian weapon foals earner than the
ehaasepot, and requires more frequent
5. Weight of .the arms and socon-
trements—The French weapon weighs
four kilogrammes without the sabre bay
onet, and 4,600 kilogrammes with the
sabre bayonet. The Prussian gun weighs
five kilogrammes without the bayonet
and 5,350 kilogrammes with it The
handling of the first is, therefore, the
least fatiguing. Tho French cartridge
weighs thirty-two grains and the Pms
sian forty-one grains.

fessed his crime. He stated that

days, and, on the fatal day met her
in the road and shot her, when she ran
some distance before he caught her. She
then implored him to spare her life, say
ing that she would not tell who had at

her again, when his pistol failing to fire,

WITHOUT A DOUBT, THEV ABE THE BEST THIHBLE-SKEIN WAG0K MADE IS THE U. S.
NINE REASONS WHY!
1st. Because they are acknowledged to be the best Plantation and Freight Wagons sold.
2d. Because they are without equal in Style and Finish.
3d. Because there is no factory in the United States where greater care is given to the selection
of the material used.
4th. Because a thorough system of inspection is strictly adhered to, so that we are prepared to
warrant every part to be perfect. If defective, it will be replaced without charge.
5th. Becnus a better quality of iron is used in its manufacture, and the tire is oneeighth inch
thicker than that used by other manutacturers.
6th. Because the Timber is of the choicest selection, thoroughly seasoned.
7th. Because no one will fail to observe the excellent quality of paint used upon them, which is
far more durable than that generally used on Plantation Wagons.
8th. Because the whole character of the Wagons is that of peculiar excellence. These wagons
are furnished at a trifle above the price of ordinary Wagons.
9th. Because Montgomery & Shaw have them for sale, and they never sell anything but firs
