Up to Friday night France has not given the slightest

sign of an intention to disarm, and according to the Berlin cor- respondent of the Times considerable uneasiness is still felt in that capital. He states on official and demi-official (German) authority that the Emperor has issued orders for the collection of 100,000 men at Chalons and 80,000 at Metz, has raised the effective strength- of the Army to 475,000 men, has paid for 15,000 horses, has bought immense quantities of corn in Austria, and has placed the fleets at Brest and Cherbourg in readiness for action. All these measures, according to the French papers, are precautionary, but Prussia watches them with visible and keen uneasiness.
