A Wa«lungtou eorrespondenl makes tlcneral ShtTUUin speak as followti of European complieationH : I tlihik UuRsia might to have ingreaH to and egn^HK fnmi the Bhurk Sea both with her war vessels and marine. You cannot hold Bitch a poworfnl nation in diireas and uunpel tlie.n t^o forever re' fltrain thenwelvos t*i avoid the UHO .of siteh a highway as the Htraitnof Dardan- ellpR and the'lllwk Sea. The powei-H who signed the treaty of 1850 should eonecde thiH, and tliiiH avoid war. UuRHin baa been too fast, however ; she should have aaked for and inHi»t(>d iipim a eon- gresH of the nationa on the Mibjeet, and thi're is no doubt he r demands would have been aeeiMled Ut. AB it in, there in not yet a riiftim hulti, and there ia still a chance for iieiine. If, however, KuHsia tItinkH her chance has c^)me and PntBsia ia ont of the way, war ia inevitablef and it will doubtliiBH b e the most t>(>rrible and destructive that liitN everoeciirreil. There is one thing which may prevent a eoUi- Hon, and that in the coiiHidenition of the question aa to who is to pay tll(> bills, though even thia eonsidenition may la* ignored. Pnissia being the idly of Ituasia miikeK little dill'erence. She is an ally aln-udy by being engaged with France in keep- ing lliat iniwerful ])eople and nationtd enemy of Itussia in check, for cei-tainly France would go agiuust KnsHiti if she were not engaged witli Prussia ; and lut itia, to get siicli iiowi'rful allies i.H Eng- land, Austria, and Italy, and doubtlesN Spain, Holliind,and Ileumark, the French government will also array itself against ItuHsia. The neutrality of Helgiiiin will then, of course, be vioLit«'d, and that couiiti'3', with bitxemboiir^', will take HuU'n with France and her allies, and thi^ result will be the great4'st battles of the world may be fought within th e ne&t year .ui Pnihwian, AuKtrian, and Jlelgiaii territory. Tht! French, liugUsb, Turk- ish, and Holland fleets will give ihitltim- siaii (leetfl much trouble, if they do not get Hie la-'Bt of thein. The Itiuisuui army however, combined with that of Prussia, will be hard to over- come. ItuHsia is a e^^neenfrated power ; bO in Prussia ; the others are scidtered, and have the time and ex)H>niM- of con- centration to overcome. It will be a greiit miatjiku for Itussia in the event of her suexM'hs to occupy Constantinople, If Itussia inaiKta on disregard iu;; the treatiea, aud Uuuwuvuutiou ui' cougt'oha is cidled Eughind must fight. Turkey is her market; Turkey's trade is hers, and if Uussia eonipiers Europcjiu Turkey, Kiissiau nierclninta get idl the trade, lui a matter of eourbu. If Itussia cinuiuefs Turkey luid Priiaaiu i;onquers France, the Austrian empire will be in j<topardy. It is for this that Austria miiHi now tight. Hungary appeiu'B to be with Austria in good faitli, and thereby gives her much strength, li is just a good time for Itidy Ut go to war. I t is a good way Un- Vic- t«u' Emanuel to settle itU dispuU^s at hinne, and bring the Itjdian nation t^i- gether. As for Hjiain, she is a mudd'e for me. I think, though, tlud. if Aosta is chosen King the government will go with Italy ami France, and thus bring idl tint Latin nations tttgether agaiuKt tbe descendanlM of the Sarueens, Teu- touN, und Vandals.

Near Corbeil six privates and an Uhlan officer were Hhot by FraiicH-tireurs, and, the villagers refiiKing to give any eltie to tbe asBailanta, the place was Bet ou fire. In the Maine locality scverid soldiers were found dead, fiwt<'ned to trt?e8, and with iheir tongues cut out. At Saintillon, near Orleans, a rwjuisition column waa attacked by Fmnc^-tin-iirs, and tho in- habitants ]oino<l in the iiaMatUt, though on the previous day they did iippejir very friendly and ••yilunissive. All wli<» bail attempted resistance were cut down by the troojjs, and the village, c<HiHiNtitig of about thirt.v hoiimw, was burnt down. This was tlic ilftli pliure which in twelve days haa neen destroyed on tlie same grouiids. \Every day,\ says a (jennan COIT(?K- pondent, \the war b(vome« morecniel.

Olfieers and soldiers alike sneak with th e ^fpatest repugnance of tlie present iihuHc of warfare ; but th e jircMer^-afion of the army is the (Irst law in war. The ojH'ndiou of the law is often t«>rrible ; but the responsibiUty is not on those who are driven to it, but on those who make the war netM^stuiry.\ It is stat^'d, however, that the troo])s Munetimes imagine that shots have been fired or other <»utrage8 iittempti'd when uotbiiig of the kind has ocA^iirred.

It siH^iuN that the folly of making arti- ficial light bttu'is not confined U> our own times. In the sixteenth century the Venetian ladies did the same thing. A cotemiMmiry writer says ; Thu Hti'Uhbouj'g goose, fiuit«-iied to the lloorlx-fore the lire to enlarge its liver, allbrds the closest partiUel to the fair, or would-be fair Venetian, with her drop- ping hejul ex)njsed to the sun, as ('esai'e Ve4-elIio, writing in 15811, pictures her; \The lumst^N of Venice uri' cominonlv crowned u ith little constrnclious in wood, reseiiibliii^a 'urret without a roof.

It is in these that the Veuetinu wiuueii may be m-vu as often, and, indiHul, oft«?n- er than iu their eham)>ei's ; it is there that, with their heiuls exposed to the full ardor of the sun during whole ibiys, they strain every nerve to augmi-nt theii' charms, as if tliey nts^ded it, a« if the consUiut use of so many methods known to all did not exjaiHi^tln-ir liatunil beauty to jtassfor no betti'rthiui arliliciid.
