A Breaek of Ifeutrality. —The National Intelligencer, the organ of Mr. Seward, the United States Secretary of State, after asking who "stole the wits of Crazy Train," says-" We dismiss this harlequin, to whom we have perhaps devoted too much space. But not so England. The depth of hate to which the heart of that nation must have, gone before it could let loose this fellow on our shores amid our present distresses is absolutely unimaginable. The Mason and Slidell affair we can forgive. The Times and the Herald we can forgive, but to permit Train. to come here was simply diabolical and unpardonable. Perfidious Albion! You had Train; you might have held- him;; we should have waited all questions of international law if you had not Only nabbed him but sent bina to Australia. You had many colonies open to you; but, deliberately you let him come here to this afflicted people. Is this what we reap from the grain sent to Ireland in her famine? Is this what those who petted your. Prince had a right to expect? Oh! Albion, how could you!" The firemen of St. Amand, near Amiens, have established an exercise which they call the "tirhydraulic." in which the tube of a fire-engine replaces the rifle. An iron target is erected, in which a hole is pierced. The target is raised 15 feet from the ground by means of a pole. The water, driven by a fire-engine placed at a dis- tance of 25. feet from the target, is received into the central opening, and falls by means of a, funnel into a cask capable of holding 25 gallons. The prize is adjudged to the fireman who- shall- Ml the-■vessel in the shortest thne. This period varied, on the first trial: from 1 minute 43 seconds to 3 minutes 30 seconds. The firemen are de- lighted with this new practice, and they have returned thanks to their captain] swho originated the idea. 1
