A Speedy Peace or a Long War?
A war like that now raging in Euror wastes
more of the world's wealth in one great battle-
j day than Europe can replace m a week, beeidea
I tle etill more terrible losses, which are indirect
I and therefore incapable of estimate, resulting
from the withdrawal of so many laborers from
j their work, and the general interruption of pro
! ductive industry. The cry of neutral nations is
j for peace, for while they suffer lers than the coiu
j batants, they still share in the injuries caused by
the war, and not at all in the passions which
j make it possible, and in the objects sought by it.
j Every day the journals of every civilized nation
j out of France express their ardent desire for an
: end of the conflict, and every day this desire
1 gives rise to rumors of diplomacy, of mediation,
' of coming official announcements, out of which,
j in home way, peace is to grow.
; We cannot but believe that all such rumors
I are without any foundation whatever in proba
; bility, and that they must be dismissed at once
' from the mind that would form an intelligent
i judgment on -the situation. It is beyond the
province of the press to predict the future, and
we cannot say that there will be no peace this
year ; but it is our business accurately to report
the state of affairs at the present time, and it is
impossible to do this without acknowledging that
no situation can readily be imagined in which
the prospects of an early termination of hos
tilities would be slighter.
If we look at the position and claims of the
cambatants alone this will scarcely be disputed.
It ia easy enough to speak of the war as cause
less, wicked, purposeless ; and so, in a sense, it
is. That is to say, if two private citizens should
fall into a duel, from a dispute in all respects
analogous in its causes to this duel between na-
i tions, all men would regard them as quarrelsome
and dangerous neighbors. But it is not true
tliat this war is one of those which are easily
stopped , one in which, as in some of the wars
of Frederick the Great and other despots, nothing
j but the wicked will of a single ruler stands in
the way ol peace. V hatever the conduct of
rulers or of diplomatists may have had to do
with the selection of the moment or of the man
ner in which it broke out, this war is a war of
nations a conflict in which two great peoples
j wrestle for a prize which, despise it as others
may who do not see it before them, seems to
them the one object worth existing for as nations,
the national primacy of Christendom.
For a century France has been the foremost of
the great powers. After the lir6t revolution no
government in Europe dared to cope with her
alone ; and even when she had been drained and
wasted by a generation of constant strife, it took
i a coalition of nations to bumble her in 1X15.
j From that day till this no other power has met
iicr Diuiu-iiuiiuiAi uu mu uaiiiu iiutu Willi success.
It was France that took the MalakoiT and stopped
the growth of Russia; it was France that won
Solferino and gave three-fourths of Italy back to
the Italians; it is France that, by the terrible
strength that stands always ready behind her
word, has been steadily regarded as the final ar
biter of European questions in or day. Now
arises, with unheard of rapidity, another power,
claiming to be her equal, her superior. IVussia,
a creation of modern times, a land that was a
wilderness of barbarians when Paris was already
the capital of civilization, a nation whose early
military aspirations were checked a 6core of
times by the French, and seemed to be finally
crushed at Jena this modern power now under
takes to fashion Europe at its will. By a per
fection of military discipline such as the world
has not seen before, by a course of wily diplomacy
holding aggrandizement always in view and,
above all, by a series of accidental strokes. of
good fortune which have no parallel in history
since the rapid growth of the Itoman Republic,
Prussia has become a first-class power ; has in
corporated with herself one land after another,
and one army after another, until she is able, at
a week's notice, to arm and equip the largest
body of 6oldiera in the world. At the first pro
vocation from France she pours them into that
country and occupies it ; and we are asked to ?e
lieve that the French people will confess them
selves vanquished, and surrender at once to their
new rival the place they have so long held in the
van of Europe ! But let any man suppose him
self a Frenchman, and he will feel at once, what
I every Frenchman now feels, be he Republican,
siivumob, ui iun:i liuiei, lUclt HUB Its not a qilCS-
tion of dynasty, of policy, of party, but a ques
tion of life; and that the only peace possible,
while France is trodden by the invader, is a peace
which follows the exhaustion of all means of de
fense the peace of desolation and of death. If
Germans are to dictate peace to- France, they
must first make France helpless and poor her
fields a desert and lier cities a ruin. The power
of Germany is great, and the -work of war is
frightful, but the richest nation in Western
Europe, with forty millions of people united in
its defense, is not to be made the victim of one
blunder in leadership, the prize of one battle, or
even tlic prey of one campaign.
Nor is the prospect that Prussia will yield her
demands, better than that Franco will give up
the struggle. All Germany is intoxicated with
victory, and, at the same time, inspired with an
intense hatred for France, which has only been
embittered by the sickening slaughter of Worth
and of Graveiotte. It is not the custom of war
riors who believe themselves irresistible to lay
down their arms just as they sec before them the
prize of victory, and there is no question that
the Germans do now see, or think they see, in
the immediate future, the humiliation of tbe
French nation. They may have taken np arms
to defend the Rhino; many of them doubtless
had this chiefly in view, but now, flushed with
their success in transferring the war to the
enemy's soil, they are clamoring, from the
Palatinate to Konigsbcrg, lor the dismemberment
of the French Empire, and Count Bismarck him
self declares that peace is impossible until it is
Jiut out of the power of France to take revenge
or the future ; that is, until her military strength
is destroyed. If he is ever to take back these
words, it will not be while German soldiers
threaten Paris, it will not be while a man of all
his master's armies is left on the French 6ide of
If tho combatants are left to themselves, then,
there is no more prospect of peace to-day, rather
far less, than when the hosts were first gathering
on the boundaries of the Palatinate. Indeed,
most writers feel this, and found their predictions
of a cessation of strife on a promised intervention
by other powers. Intervention is of two kinds,
diplomatic mediation, and an armed interference
to 6top 6trife and settle the dispute on terms
dictated to the combatants from without. We
cannot discover any possibility of either. There
can be no friendly mediation, for there is nothing
upon which diplomacy can act, and no principles
to which it can appeal. -The question is, who is
stronger, and how are diplomatists to settle that?
What principles of international law can be laid
down to decide whether France or Prussia shall
hereafter take the lead in Europe? In such a
quarrel tbe time for mediation comes only when
I tbe struggle of one side or the other is hopeless ;
tuc cLicujri, lv uioiiau) v uu iutuivcb me assump
tion that it ia hopeless, and is therefore unfriendly
and even hostile. Wlio haa the right to say that
France shall fight no longer to maintain her as
cendancy, if France herself is confident that she
can do so'I Who has the right to say that Ger
many shall advance no further into the heart of
France if the French themselves cry defiance at
her, and bid her come on? Every Frenchman
looks on the thought of peace now as degrada
tion, and treats the suggestion as an insult. Un
der these circumstances a resolute attempt at
mediation would only end in taking part in the
war, while a feeble attempt would but make itself
Nor is armed intervention any more probable.
There is no power in Europe, and no combination
of powers, that has at once the ability and the
motive to stop thia war. Whatever protests
Russia and Austria may utter, avowedly in the
interests of peace, there is no doubt that both of
them would be glad to see it fought out to the
entire exhaustion of both parties. The weakness
of Prussia and of France would be the oppor
tunity of the Eastern empires. Let France be
humbled, and the chief barrier to Russian ad
vance upon the Danube and the Golden Horn is
broken down. Let Prussia wear herself out in
Champagne, and the Hansburgs may again dictate
a policy to Bavaria and Wurtemburg, if not re
sume their lost provinces upon the Adriatic As
for England, she will not move a foot towards j
the field of strife. Her boasted treaty for the
neutrality of Belgium only binds her to join one
belligerent when the other shall have been guilty
of a trespass in Flanders, and even thia treaty,
which is of importance chiefly for its moral force,
as a declaration of a principle in public law, de
rives that force in great part from the consent of
combatants, and the expected adhesion of the
other powers. They may join her in protecting
a neutral kingdom ; they will not join her in in
terfering upon the soil of the belligerents ; and
alone she can do nothing. Her whole army,
which could not be put on a war basis and trans
ported to the Continent in six months, and then
only at the sacrifice of Ireland, would not more
than hold in check one army corps of Prussia or
France, or garrison one great fortress such as
Antwerp. None know her condition better than
British statesmen themselves ; and they would be
the last to obtrude it on the world by an ill-timed
demonstration. The talk of intervention is aa
idle as that of mediation.
As the situation now stands, then, the war
most go on, France must come out of it entire
and triumphant, or prostrate. Germany must
march on, to find between Metz and Paris her
turn of an Austerlilz or a Waterloo. Other na
tions must l(ok on. and bear the sight of waste,
ruin and slaughter as they may, until one or the
other of these fierce warrior peoples shall, in
sheer exhaustion, abandon the fight, and the his
tory of Europe take a new point of departure.
It will not, indeed, take so long to wear out the
strength of either side, or of both, as in the days
before modern artillery and needle-guns were
moved by steam, and whole nations drilled as
soldiers. But the exhaustion, though more rapid,
will be no less complete, ere either nation will
cry " enough."
There is one, and only one qualification to the
sadness with which humane men must regard the
strife, and that is the fact that the war seems
likely to be limited still to tbe two powers which
began it, and that there is no Pitt at the head of
European politics, who will devote his unlimited
influence to extending the area of ruin, and pro
longing the cycle of blood, until all Europe seems
one battle field, filled with " moans of the dying
and voices of the dead." Hunt's Magazine.
Metz, the principal town of the Department of
the Moselle, in France, and famous at thia junc
ture because of the trapping ' of Marshal
Bazaine'B army within its walls by the Prussian
forces under Prince Frederick Charles, is a hand
some and strongly fortified city of 55,000 inhab
itants. It is situated on the River Moselle, and
is important as a manufacturing centre. Like all
the towns of that part of France, the streets are
narrow and the houses lofty. Along the streets
lining the river are fine open quays, and the
Moselle in its course througn the town, together
with its different branches, ia crossed by no less
than 15 bridges. Many handsome public gardens
adorn the city, and the city has been much re
sorted to by tourists. The principal architectural
feature of Metz is its fine old Gothic cathedral.
It was commenced in 1332, and was finished in
1519. The edifice is surmounted by an elegant
spire of open work, 373 feet high. Within the
choir arc preserved many ancient and interesting
relics of a by-gone age, among them the stone
throne of the early bishops of Charlemagne's mass
books. Some of the other churches of the town
are very ancient, dating from the twelfth and
thirteenth centuries. As a military post Metz is
very important. One of the largest arsenals in
France is here, together with a cannon foundry.
In this foundry . lies at present an interesting
memento of pist wars with Germany in the
shape of a long cannon, called Vogel Grief,
taken by the French in 1799 from the formidable
and lofty fortress of Ehrenbreitatein on the
Rhine. There are also in the city an immense
military hospital capable of holding 1,500 pa
tients, and the great school for the education of
officers of the eugineers and artillery in France.
In the time of the Romans, Metz was a place of
some importance as a fortified barrier against the
trans-Rhenish barbarous tribes. It was the
Roman domination as Divodurum and Metis.
But there are now but few traces of Roman ar
chitecture in the town. Metz was for a long
time capital of the kingdom of Australia. Under
the Emperor Otho it became a free imperial city.
It was occupied by the French commander, the
Constable de Montmorency, by strategy, in 1552,
in the name of Henry II. King of i ranee. It
was at that time a strong fortress with a popula
tion of 00,000. The Emperor, Charles V.
incensed at the act of the Constable, assembled
an array of 100,000 men for tho purpose of re
taking it. The city was defended by the Duke de
Guise who afterwards wrested Calans from the
English and after a 6iege of ten monthB, in
which the Empeior sustained a Iofs of 30,000
men, it was abandoned to the possession of the
French, and it has since been a city of France.
They have a handsome synagogue. Metz is the
native place of the famous Gen. Kellerman, one
of the Generals of the first Napoleon.
Metz is considered as indeed it has proven
itself to be one of the strongest fortresses in
France. It forms the centre of the French de
fences on the side of Germany between the
Meuso and the Rhine. Tlie fortifications, like
those of Strasbourg and other fortified French
towns, were planned by the great Vauban, and
were continued by Marshal do Belleisle. The
most important works consist of three forts,
called respectively Fort Belle-Croix, Fort Moselle
and Fort La Double Couroune. The two first are
chefs d'eeuvre of military construction, and were
begun in 1731 ; the last is surrounded by a triple
ditch filled with water. In addition to these de
fences, there iB to the southwest of the town a
redoubt of considerable strength called h Pale,
so contrived and arranged that at will it may bo
converted into an island by closing the sluices of
the River seille, a small stream that enters into
the Moselle near Metz, whose waters may be
raised 24 feet, so as to form a lake more than six
miles in extent.

Pavia and Sedan.
There ia a certain analogy between those great
historical actions. In 1525 the valiant Knight
and King Francis I., surrendered his sword in
the battle of Pavia with these memorable words :
Tout est perdu, sauf rhonnenr." The German
Emperor Charles V., as Kins of Spain, Belgium
and the Netherlands, having by thia surrender
become the most powerful of all the European
princes (though fighting against the Pope, and
yet a fanatic Catholic), was unable to bequeath
this power to his successors, because the leehng
of nationality was still dormant in the people.
A Louis XIV. succeeded in carrying out the
ambitious plans of Francis I.; a Xapole.n I.,
based an empire on the war ery of " Liberty,
Fraternity and Equality," and a Napoleon III.,
who lacked their great qualities, was unable to
create r Empire du demimonde, by nourishing
jealousies and mistrust among the powers ot
Napoleon III. succeeded in humiliating Kussia
and Austria with the assistance of powerful
allies; but the spirit of unity awakened in
Germany was destined to check hiB mad career ;
it showed the total emptiness of thia phantom
empire, and the second Napoleon delivered with
his e word the acknowledgment, that all the im
aginary power of France was mere braes, based
on fraud and intrigue. -
The false notion that Carolus Magnus as
founder of the Roman-German Empire was a
Frenchman and not a German, made tho above
named French rulers proclaim the axiom : Res
titutio imperii ad Francos ! Millions of men of
both nations have been butchered to satisfy these
absurd pretentions. May they be buried forever !
Anyhow it is a consolation for France that it
was none of its heroes, who gave the death blow
to French ambition, but the nephew of his uncle,
whom Guizot designated by the not over-flattering
epigram : 44 e'est une tncapacile me'eonnue! "
