I noticed over one stall: Bniiillon i<t< bmnf de chcval (ROII]> and l>eof of borsfi,) ronbif de cbevnl nnd biftonk de oheval are common inscrip- tions. I have not yet taken to liorse.

Bonillon .de cboval is nnsnvory and greasy. Th e other chiy I saw teiihorflca sold lor $I.fiO. Th e i>ai>ers say forty Iioraes sold at the Inst market for 9^. The inofifTnitrkot nt the great markets is for tlie most part closed ; the few stalls ojjpn sell horse flesh. Tlie floor, iH'a nnd l>enu shops around the com market ore clciBod. The vholosalc egg shops ore nil closed. Eggs, mnsbrortms, and salads nro the only things which seem plentifid. They nevertheless ore denr. Eggs are five cents each ; celery is five cents a stalk ; mushrooms nri> linclmng- ed. All the poultry is live. Oeose and turkeys are 85 each ; ducks, 02.50 ; chick- ens, 92 to ^. A horrible efllnvia arises from the cellars of tbe great markets. When the peasauts began to flow into Paris, bringing what provisions they could, they refused t o ])nrt with their potatoes at double tlie nsualprice They wnnteil more money. Th e potatoes were storcil in the great markets cellars. Tliey soon began to rot, and are now so fur advanced in decav they are removed b^V spades. Th e pufrifying mass is cor- ned to the river, nnd there the sound Iiotatoes are eeeiJaroted from the rotten imlp. Potatoes are 80 cents a bushel; egg p1ant» nro six ceiit» each ; but such miserable shrivelled things, they are not worth cooking; cabbageB, 20 cents to .30 cents each ; cauliflowers, 12 cents tu 30 centfl eocli. I n the streets one iicoa- siouully meets a fisherman hawking the flsh ho hnv caught }n the river. Gud- geons b e sells for 50 centfl or GO cents, giring n dish for twn i>ersons; carps, 91.60 to 83; eels, same; and pikes, 91.20 t o 92.50. There are still a great many market gardens under cultivation inside tlie fortiflcnlions. They furnish us with all tho vegetables we have. I n Paris there are a great maiiv eow-honses which supply us with milk, eggs, nnd rabbita. It astonishes me noiio of the tradesmen here laid in a large Bui>i)ly. Only one man jin't^Midcd to lay in any supply. lie is a grocer. Tliere is a rib- bon of four hnntlred jieople constantly before Lia 'V>or, and be has ulr»!ady clear- ed 922,000. Ilia slio)) is nearly emj^tied; his servant told ine this morning they expeot to close to-night. Oui^ reason of this lack of biisinosB twk and foreaight is want uf cuiiital ; another is wantof bnsi- uosH knowledge ; anuther is fear of the government and of the nnib.

A War Incident. ^ A eorres]iondent gives na tho following singular incident of the war: Out from the city of Metz, from the west gate, n comi>act moss of French citizens swarmed into the plain. They were 6,000 in num- ber. At their kead was n man and a wo- man—the latter carrying a largo white flag of tnicc, and lieiug a little in ad- vance. The rear was brought u p b y n number of children and young persons and old people beariug little flags of tnice. I n the rear was o strong Imdy of l-Vench troo])B. Orderlies were sent away by tho Prussians to warn the out- posts not to let any to jiass in, even to receive them iw prisoners, but to fire on tbeir flag of truce as long as there was a mass of troops behind. I'lie jieople kept advancing, and wlieu tliey were in range the PniHsiaus began to fire. The shots at fb-st were aimed so as to pass over tlieir heads, but still they kept coming on, tbe man and tho woman keeping in nd^•nnce und moving more rapidly. .The man was singled out b y two «>r three Prus- sians and he fell dead. Still the woman came on, but the crowd behind hesitated and then stopped short, when she too stopped, nnd, weing the fate of lier late oumpaninu, halted irresolute. A few more shots fired near her sufficed to de- cide he r wavering resolution, nnd she turned and fled. At that signal tlie whole crowd turned and rushed pell mell back to tho French gnf<', throwing away their flogs and scrambling over each otlier. The troops openeil their ranks to let them jiass, Imt the })oople did uot wait for this, and streanieil throifgh their ranks wherever the^v ecnild got a passage.
