Paris, the struggles of the Cuban patriots are quite lost sight of by the people of this conn ' Iri. .Before the.

It , should still interest our readers to know that the Cubans are yet vab nrnnalir hnldinff their cround, and that the .. prospects of Spain crushing out the Rebel lion are quite as remote as they ever were. In fact, it seems pretty clear now that Spain . has about as much as she can attend to in kepnin" down her Republicans at home, without the Cubau bother. .

But reasons :-. like these are insufficient to prevent Mr. -u Phillips from receiving his third nomination -. , for the Governorship oi the Bay State. One of the most singular features of the -' present war is the fact that although France : 1 is engaged in a terrible struggle against tne Prussian invasion, she has no large army in the field. ; Marshal Bazaine's command, ' which comprises the flower of the French tarn1inr armv. seems to be hopelessly be- leaguered at Met.

The attitude which Prussia now holds France is in some respects not dissimilar to that of Frederick in the incident above related. Prussia de sired the good will of France, but received only hatred and sour looks, there was no fear on either side ; but when France threw down the gauntlet Prussia took it up with out a moment's hesitation. ..The result lias thus far been disastrous to French arms, and Prussia is now determined to whip France into a respectful if not affectionate frame of mind.
