The Republican City Convention did Ha work id a very creditable way yesterday. There seemed to be no disposition to change the ticket from that ot last year. The present Incumbents have served the-city with guttural satisfaction which gave the Convention no reason to make a change in the nominees. Mayor Norcross having served during the past year with faithfulness and zal, the Convention very wisely tendered him a renomination. He is unflinching in what ho deems right, and is possessed of unwavering Integrity, lie has exercised a watchful care over the interests of the City, anil haB been prompt and efficient. Hay-iacr been endorsed by the Convention, we predict that he will be backed by the entire party in the city, and will again be elected. Mr. E. L. Dlmnck has filled 'the Dfflce of City Clerk wlLU so much ability, and with such eminent satisfaction that he received a renominatioa by acclamation. He haB proved himaeli one of the moat efficient, ! obliging, and industrious clerks the city ; eyer had. It is a responsible office, the du- I ties of which are important, requiring the ; greatest care and skill, The best interest or this department of the City Government demands Mr. Dimock's election. Mr. E. F. Carpenter has been City Attorney for one year, and has been a faithful servant. We believe the city was never in a better condition than it is now so far as litigation is concerned. There is only one suit now pending against the city. Mr. Carpenter's services in behalf of Janesville should be handsomely acknowledged next Tuesday at the polls. In one case alone, that of the Nicholson pavement, which was tried at Portage in December last, he saved to the city some $1,500 or 41,800. He has al3o prevented the city from beine thrown into litigation, by giving timely and trustworthy advice- He should be re-elected on. the principle Btated .by ft prominent business man in the city, that ha would give a lawyer more to keep him out ot law than to get Urn out when ho Is Mr. Li. F. P niton, as Police Justice, has served the city well, and should be mated. He is especially qualified for that ! position, and has attended to the office faithfully and justly, Mr. M. M. Phelps, renominated for Justice of the Peacei is very popular, and having presided in his court with satisfaction to the public, will undoubtedly continue to serve the pco-pie. There was no Republican anxious enough for the trcasurershipto take the nominations, and hence Mr. Haselton, Who has held the office four years and wants it sev eral more, was decided the choice of the Convention. Mr. HaseHon's politics bad as politics can be, but it don't interfere with hia duty as city treasurer. He has demonstrated the tact that a Democrat hold an office long and well. He is so tentlve to the business of the office, bo obliging and gentlemanly that it was considered foolishness to Riye him an opponent. THE SITUATION IN THE SOUTH. There has been a good deal said at dif ferent times regarding the condition of the colored people in (he South: and especial ly concerning the political condition of the while Republics, in some instances we have no doubt heard exaggerated reports, and in other cases it ia no doubt true that wevngq n laiievi w uo jusuvu io VOLUME 22 subject. Several persons of the Worth nave recently traveled through South, have visited the larger cities, have also seen agricultural districts and have talked with negroes in all conditions of life. The reports we have from the Northern writers are conflicting. Borne say the conditii the colored man is far belter than the peo- ; the North generally believe, while others write that the story of pauperism and political persecution, has not half told. Among those who have recently visited the South for the purpose ol inves. ligation, Is the well-known, old abolition ist and popular historical writer, Mr. W. Jtugginsan. Lately he went Jueh several of the Southern States, and what he saw and heard i statement which is very interesting hi publishes in the Woman's Journal. It Would be difficult to ascribe ta Mr. Hig- ginson any other than honest motives in writing about the condition of things in the South, and it would be equally as diffl-cult to dispulo hia statements. In the first place Mr. Higginson says that the "ceero question" is not thorouali- ly understood in the North. He traveled a great deal among all classes of both while anil black, and Id street at hotels, on railway trains, and at places of amusement, he saw no disposition to respect color, and no signs of violence or hostility. Ho also says that he heard no complaints from the leading whites that tho negroes would not wortc, but on tho other hand the colored man was industrious and in as Rood a condition, and even batter, than the laboring wanes. W hile tn unarieston, a prominent colored man told him that he thought his people had more money than the whites, and that the white young men were compelled, in many cases, to borrow money ot the colored, If we have any occasion to doubt the correctness of Mr. HiggiDBjn's aiatemcnt, it is In relation to the political condition of the colored people. He says the frauds of the carpet-baggers have not bean exaggerated. They have robbed the people, and burdened the States with debt. This may all be, but we are inclined to doubt tho " exceedingly friendly " relations which Mr. Hlggtnsonsays there exists between the colored voters and the Democratic politicians. He claims that there is a rivalry between the Republicins and the Democrats asjto which can show- thB colored men the most respect and attention tor the purpose of securing his vote, and in this way he is politically, feeding on clover When we reflect on the Mississippi tragedies, the-Louisiana bulldoziag, the perse-cations which aro going on in several of the Southern Stales, we are impressed w itb the idea that Mr. Higginson saw but ihe most favored portion of the colored voters In the South. Ben. Butler, who is never governed by any honest motive in anything he does, vuted with the Democrats, yesterday, to unseat Walbridge A. Field, of Boston, who represents the third district in Congress. He received 9,320 votes against 9,315 for Dean, a Democrat. There is no charge of any irregularity in the election. Butler has a dislike for Field, and joined with the Democrats to oust him. The Democrats have cot perpetrated a greater outrage this session than the unseating at Mr. Field, The scheme was euch a damnable one, that It eyon turned the stomachs of several Democrats who refused ta have anything to do with the conspiracy. But wilh the aid of Butier, Field was driven from the House by one vote. Mr. Field is young man and a lawyer ol ifine ability. He was assistant attorney of the United ta tea for Massachusetts; tor four years and was afterwards assistant attorney general of the United States. The Chicago Tribune correspondent at Washington has interviewed Hon, C. w Williams, of this State, on Howe's speech' Mr. Williams Is reported as havlDg said ihatheknew something of the tanor the speech before it was delivered. U partly endorses the position Howe took l regard to the President, but of course cor slders the speech ill-timed and unnecesss ry. Nine hundred and nincty-niae oi of a thousand Republican voters in Wi constn, will condemn the motives wtjic prompted the tosailizcd Senator in naakic the speech. Had he made it months ago, when thoro might have been some- occ Slon for it, but little might be said, but tela hour, his personal spite and selfishness are too apparent. Judge Stewart, oi thu Madison district, as too sharp for the lawyers who defend-1 Wissmger in his trial for murder, which has been In progress at Baraboo lor soma time. He instructed the jury that they must find him guilty tof murder in tho first degree, or acquit him on the ground ot in- sanily, that being the piea set up in Wis- singer's deiense. The jury acquitted on the ground of insanity, and at onc Judge ordered him held in custody for the reason that he did not thini it proper allow an "insane" man to run at large !

Had such a purpose been hinted at in our country in ihe Presidential campaign, we would have been buried out of sight, I, and 1 presume no one of ihe Wisconsin delegation, knew anything ot the details of Senator Howe's from delivering it. Personally, I have no iodine aeaiasc the Administration., fori in ail my intercourse with it, both personally and officially." REJECTED. A Dad Day in the United States Sen-Ate for Presidential Appointments. Washikqton, March 33. The Senate waa in queer humor to-day, and rejected one of the best nominations that has been madethat of Reynolds to be First Audi- tor, m was no onjeotea to py any one in particular and no one offered any reasons why he should not be confirmed, but When tho voting came there was a majorl- tp agamBt him. In the same way Hoyt, of Wisconsin, will be rejected as Governor of Wyoming, when his name come3 up for action. There is no reason why he should not be confirmed except that Thayer, is suspended, and is a good man. He is an ex-Senalor, too, and that has great weight with the body. The President will discover soon that it would be agreeable to have a party in the Senate. WISCONSIN MATTERS.

THE BATTLE OF SEDAN. Victor Hugo's " History of a Crime," A fortrayal or the Blundering ot itfapoleon III, The Elll-elent Maneuvers or the Cerninns. A Vivid. Picture or tlie Scene. TUe O ilia mi Victory and Crushing Defeat of the French, I. 1 was returning from my fourth term of exile a Belgian exile, of slight account. It was at the close of September, 1871, I was re-entering France by the frontier of Luxembourg. I had fallen asleep in the car. Suddenly the jolt of a stoppage awoke me. I opened my eyes. The train waB drawn up in the midst of a lovely landscape. I was In the kali-llgbt ot a broken slumber ; my ideas, indistinct and confused, floated about, still half-dreams, betwut reality and myself ; I experienced the vague dazzle ol' an awakening. A river flowed on beside the track, a clear river, surrounding a green and cheerful isle. The growth about the isle was so ihick that Ihe water-fowl, when they landed, delved into It and disappeared. The river wandered away through a valley which looked like a deep garden. There were apple-trees which made one think of Eve, and willows which made one dream of Galatea. of tne vear.as 1 said, was ono of those equinoctial months in which the charm of ending seasonB fe felt ; it winter departs, the song oj spring reaches one ; if summer dlesaway, a vague smile, autumn, dawus upon the horizon. The wind quieted and reduced to harmony all the happy noises which form the r oi me pittin ; me tinKiinp oi mile appeared to cradle the murmur of the ; the last butterflies met ihe first clus-)1 grapes : this hour of the voar min gles ihe joy of actual lite wilh the ancon- ms aieiincuoiy oi approaching death ; jzenlleness ot the son was not tn ba ex. pressed. Beautiful lands striped with fur- p, and tionest peasants' roots ; under lowing of oxen,a3 ia Virgil, and the smoKo ot Immiets, lighted by sunbeams ; euoh was thu picture. Distant anvils were ringing, mm oi laoor in me harmony ot na-1 listened and meditated in a con fused manner; the valley was bcauiirul and tranquil, the blue heavens rested, as it ipon apieasam circle oi uuis ; mere oicea of birds far away, and chil dren's voices near by, like two angels' ehauls commingled ; tho universal limpidity surrounded me; all this grace and all this greatness put dawn into my soul. f! buddenly a traveler asked me: " What place is this?" Another answered : I started. The paradise was a sepulchre. 1 looked about me. The vallev was round and hollow as the bottom of a crater; io river, quite tortuous, bore a likeness to serpent ; the high bills, stored above icq other, inclosed the myatenoas spot as ith a triple row oi inexorable walls; once .here, one had to remain. It made one think of tho circuses of old. An indescribable and disquieting vegetation, which uaa iuj seinoitince oi a prolongation, oi mo UlacU Forest invaded tlie heights and was lost on the horizen like an immense, impenetrable snare, tho buu shone, Lhj birds warbled, the teamsters passed by whistling; there were sheep, lambs and doves here and there, the foliage curled io n nispereu; me grass, we mica grass, as tilled with flowers. It was terrible. I fancied I beheld tho Saminer of the an gel's sword tremblinc over the vallev. The word Sedan had been as a rent veil. tne landscape nan oi a su.wa become tragical. Tiie yague eyeB which the barb draws upon the trunks of trees gazed upon wnat oomemmg terriDia ana van- Here it was, Indeed ! and at the dale, 13 ontlis less a tew days had gone by, sine e uijuatrous adventure ol the 2d of Di uiber had ended here. A formidable stranding. led without a deep oppression of the II. On August 3lst, 18'iO, an army found it self assemoied and. as it were, massed, un der thu wails ot Sedan, in a place called Fond de Glyonne. This army was a r roueu army; s ungaues, louivisions, army corps, 00:000 men. ThtB army was der, without purpose, pellmcl!,'as a kind of aheap of men thrown there as though to gruspeci oy a giani nana. Tnis army did not experience or seem experience, for the moment, any imme diate uneasiness. It knew, or thought it tine w, that the foe waa pretty remote, Calculating the marches at the rate of four luagucs a day, it was removed by a three days' march. Still, towarJ's evening, the Sedan and (he Mease river, they protected the Seventh Corps, and eitendiug from Flmn? to Givonne: the other, consisting ol the Twellth Corps, and extending ironi Givonne to. Bazieles, a triangle of which the Meuse formed tho hypoihenuae. I'iie'i'wellih Uorps, mcmtling the three dlviaionsof Lacreteila, Lartigueand Wolff, drawn up in a straight line, with artillery between .the brigades, constitoued a real barrier, having at its extremities Bazeik-s and Givonne and its center Daigny; the two divisions ot Petit and Lhontier abutted the barrier. Gen. Lsbrua commanded the Twelfth Corps. The Seventh Corps, commanded by Gen. Douav. included only two divisions, Du- mont's division and Ciiibbet'e, and formed the other line of battle covering ihe army from Givonne to Ploing, toward Illy ; this line was relatively weak too open m the direction ot Givoone, and only protected cavalry divisons of Margueritte and Bon-nemainB, and by Guymoar's brigade TMtinf in ft cnuare unon Floinir. In this triancle wero encamped tho Fifth Corns, under Gen. Wimpfen, and the First Corps cavalry covered the First Corps toward Datgny; the fifth leaned upon Sedan. Four divisions, each drawn in twolims; L'Heritier'.j, Graadcharup's, Goze's, and Conseil-Dunienii's, formed a sort of a horseshoe turned toward Sedan and connecting the first line of battle with the second. AmeU S envision oi cavairy anu r onianges hrlrade acied as a reserve for these four divisions. The whole artillery was in the army were in mid-air, one to the right of Sedan, beyond Balan, and the other on the ieft. this side oi Iges. Beyond Balan with Vassolirne'a division and Hoboul'g brigade ; this side ol Igei were Margaer- NUMBER 18 ma's and Eonnemain's divisions of cavalry- These arrangements Indicated a sense of perfect security. First of all the Emperor Napoleon would not have come there had he not been quite easy in mind. The Fond de Givonne is what Napoleon I was wont to call a wash bowl, and what Admiral Tromp called a pot de tliarnbrc. No packing-box; could bo closer. An army on the spot is so thoroughly at home, as to be too much so ; it runs the risk of not being able to leavo the place. This gave preoccupation to a few valient and prudent chiefs like Wimpfen, who were not listened to. II the imperial suite, we are always sute to uracil jiezieres, anu, uappen wilat may, the Belgian lrontier. But ought such extreme eventualities to be foreign ' Tn r-PTimn cases, to foresee is almost to offend. So all agreed for tranquility's sate. aaq mey oees uneasy mey would have it the brldxes over the Meuso.tmt no nnn thought of doing so.. To what end ? The enemy was far away. The Emperor, evidently well informed, asserted it. tne army oivouaciceu rather pell-mell, as we mentioned above, and slept peacefully throurfh tho niahtof Auz. 31. having under alt circumstances, or believing that it had, a retreat upon Mezieres open to It. Even the most common measures of precaution were disdained ; no cavalry recon-noissances were undertaken ; they did not even send out grand guards ; a German writer says bo. Thev were separated frnm ihn nrm.r Army by 14 leagues at least ; they did not uun uicemeiy untie mai army was; tney ncied It was scattered, holding 111 togeth-ill advised, directed somewhat at nan- hazard upon several objective points simultaneously, unablo to effect a converging movement, upon a single spot, like Sedan; they thought they knew that the Prince of baxony was marching upon Chalons, and i-rince oi rrussia upon mete ; they i icnorant ot evervthinu f-.iiiwinrr.inir the German Army, us chief;, its plan s, its equipment, its numbers.
