WAR TELEGRAMS AVIATORS GETTING VERY BUSY. VISITORS APPEAR OVER PARIS ArtB ANTWERP. GERMAN TaOOPS CONCENTRATING en I BRUSSELS. I A telegram from Ostend, received here last night, says:â Eighty thousand German troops are expected in Brussels to-day (Tuesday). This would seem to indicate either a withdrawal of two army corps to meet a .Belgian attack; a withdrawal for the I purpose of sending mora troops to the north to stem the Russian advance; or a I tactical rearrangement of the force operating against the Allies in the south. ?Xote: Tbis message al?o appears in another telegram.] FRENCH OFFICIAL NEWS. Germans Fail to Break the Line. The Frencn Embassy in London has received the following official de- spatch from Paris. It will bs observed that a portion of yesterday's message is repeated. In the Vcsges and in Lorraine our troops are gradiially advancing, in conse- quence of loral successes- In the region between Toul and Verdun no operations of any importance have oc- curred. ) In the zone between the Meuse and Hethel a general action which is in pro- gress has not yet had a definite result. In the district of St. Quectm. Vervins, Earn, and Peronne a battle has been proceeding for three days. Our left wing is engaged with the best German troops. The situation is summed up thus:â On the right the enemy is falling back before us. On the centre, where we have had alternate checks and successes, a general battle is in progress. On the left the Anglo-French Corps have had to give ground, but nowhere have they been really broken through. The work ot putting the entrenched camp of Paris in a state of defence is .being completed. POSITION OF PARIS, Expecting the Best, but Ready for Anything. A telegram from Paris, despatched on Monday, hut delayed in transmission, savs:â Despite the appearance of German leroplanes over Paris, and the news that the Germans are advancing on the French left wing, the city remains ca m. i r, cl, people are determined to resist to the end. Numbers of people are certainly leav- ing the capital, hut many of these are provincials who have hitherto delayed choir departure, and the men are, lnxious to get their families away, of ten i aiuch against the will of the latter. It is felt, however, that it is better I tor those whose presence is not required to leavp. in order to hamper as little as possible the measures ot defence. Although everything is in readiness for the departure of the Government and Embassies, this is only a wise measure pf precaution. The military critic of the Temps" considers that there is no reason to be unduly alarmed at the Ger- man advance on the French left. The troops which the Germans are pushing forward in this direction are quite in- sufficient to besiege Paris. The impor- tant point is the centre, where the ad- vance has been checked. The Germans are believed to be at the limit of their effort. Moreover, it -is probable that the Germans have had -to weaken t-heir effectiveness in order to send troops against Russia, w-hilo the Allies are constantly being reinforced. OVER PARIS. Another Aeroplane Raid. âriâ Parts, Tuesday Night.âAnother Ger- aian aeroplane flew over Paris about six )lo lock this evening and dropped six hombs, which fortunately only did some little unimportant damage.
