dition of. improvement
One of the members of the Government of tbe
National Defence, Eugene Pelletan, was one day
developing this thesis to me, with all the spirited
brilliance and imaginative eloquence which dis
tinguish him: that just as . in . gambling "qui
peril gagne," so in modern wars the vanquished
draws more advantages from ' his ' defeat than the
conqueror from his victories. 44 In fact," he
said, 4 whence dates the present greatness of
Prussia? From Jena, when 6he lay prostrate in
the duet at the feet of Napoleon. Cut to pieces,
exhausted by requisitions and contributions of
war, ruined, , almost effaced . from the map of
Europe, it was in the depth of her fall that she
laid the foundations of the institutions which
make her so powerful to-day. After 1815 France
loses her new-made conquests, and even a slice of
the conquests of Louis XIV. ; she pays a milliard
of francs to the Allies, a milliard to the emigres.
And this was the moment which saw the begin
ning of that period of literary renovation, of
scientific activity, of parliamentary life, of in
dustrial development, which gave France the pre-
Jonderating part in the affairs of Europe. In
848 Piedmont is crushed by Austria. It forth
with concentrates itself, reforms itself, establishes
liberty, and. thanks to the prestige of its liberty,
annexes Italy. Russia is beaten in the Crimea;
ce. se recutille, according to the well-known
phrase of her First Minister ; she recognizes the
causes of her weakness, and, to remedy it, she
emancipates her serfs, covers herself with an im-1
mense net-work of iron roads, and appears to
day stronger than she ever was. Austria tri
umphed over Hungary and Italy in 1849, and
never was 6he so feeble as after ber success. . She
was beaten in 1859 and 1866, and her reverses
deliver her from theocracy and despotism, and
win for her the enjoyment of every liberty, and
the sympathies of all Europe."
Whence comes it that Germany has so rapidly
and completely overcome France, which is equally
populous, more rich, and more warlike? Every
one answers, it is because' Germany had com
pulsory instruction for all, military service, for
all, the Scbulpflichtigkeit and the I)icn8pfliehtig
keit. It was said before at Sadowa in 1866, itTs
not the needle-gun which has conquered, tut the
schoolmaster. ,This is still more true in 1870, as
the chassepot was worth incomparably more than
the zundnadelgewehr. We cannot declare it too
loudly i it ia ignorance that has los: France.
Ignorance in diplomacy, which, knowing neither
the history nor. the language nor the tendencies
of Germany, deceived the Emperor as to the atti
tude likely to be assumed by the different states.
Ignoiance in the generals, who had never studied
either the organization of the Prussians, or their
tactics, or their progress, or tbe lessons of the
campaign of 1866, or the quality of their leaders.
Ignorance iu the officers, who, accustomed to
tight against Arabs, have been constantly sur
prised, confounded, bewildered in their own
country. ' Ignorance ' iq the soldiers, whoj con
sidering the German as a brute to be driven with
the but-ends of their muskets, lost all their self
possession when confronted by men as brave as
themselves, more familiar with the ground than
their own captains,, and with skill enough to
make a far more intelligent and deadly use of an
inferior weapon. Ignorance without bound or
limit iri it press, which cried "a JJeriti," as it It
were a mere oucstion Of a'miiitarv 'nromemiilft.
The most formidable corps in the French armies j
was, it used . to .be said, the Turcos and the j
Zephyrs. They met men in spectacles, coming i
irom universities, speaKing ancient and modern
languages, and writing on occasion letters iu
Hebrew or Sanskrit.' Tlie men in spectacles have
beaten" the wild beasts from Africa. In other
words, intelligence ha9 beaten savaserv. Are we
to be surprised at this, when we know that war I
like industry. is becoming more and more an i
affair of science? ' !
..;... - : ' 1
,Tbe calamities which ignorance' is causing to
France during the war, are not to be compared
to those with which she is .menaced in peace.
The one.'crucl as they may be, are transitory ;

universal suffrage has thrice with genuine en
thusiasm placed absolute power in the -hands of
the hero of Boulogne, and, obeying the prefers,
has iuvariablylected men who were profoundly
mediocre, but wholly devoted to. the personal
Eower. Everywhere and 'always despotism has
een the natural fruit of ignorance. Now that
tho blind multitudes will no longer be able to
vote for tl Man of Sedan, wc have to fear that
they will choose the most extreme representatives
of the opposite opinions, Socialists, Legitimists,
Ultramontanes, phrenetic Conservatives, who by
the desperate violence of ."their struggles will

France finds herself drawn . towards the old
policy of equilibrium by her dynastic traditions
and her aspirations after the supremacy of
Europe ; towards the modern policy of non-intervention
abroad and development at home; by the
opinion of the more clear-sighted of her publicists.-
It is slightly late now to turn to the
first; let her then resolutely adopt the second,
and above all remain constant to it. If after the
plebiscite Napoleon had disarmed, declaring that
lie intended to interfere no more in the domestic
affairs of Germany, he would have forced Prus
sia to disarmament, for the South would never

already in the Northern Confederation the Diet
was crying for economy. All alarm disappearing
on the sido of France, the pacific movement
would havo been irresistible, ljt was the writers
and other men who thrust France into an atti
tude, and a policy, of aggression, that prevented
ber from triumphing over her rival, by peace und
There is another difficulty which republican
France will have to meet, in the regulation of
tho relations between the Church and the State.'
The Liberal party thinks that the time has come
for abolishing the Concordat, suppreming the
budget of worship, surrendering ail .rights of in
terference in ecclesiastical affairs, in a word, for
establishing, as in the American Union,'tho free
church in the free state. The bast reasons may
certainly be invoked in favor of this project, but
u me i-aiuouu ciergy see in it an attempt upon
:it u t tv. . .. r . r .
Whatever the regime which ultimately carries
the day, one reform will, still be urgent, the re
form of the press. The pTees," it is said,' is the
fourth estate. A mistake ; it k the only estate,
for it is the press which forms opinion, and pub
lie, opinion is the true sovereign. Now, the
French press is 'entirely oelow its 'mission. - In
the first place, with a few exceptions, the jour
nals publish no new and no documents relating
to foreign countries. The 'reader thns becomes

the harm done by this pestilent press' is not per
ceived; bnt its ravages come into , full light in
times of crisis.,. One paper liko the great Eng
lish umaldCas well informed and as honorably
conducted, would be worth more to France than
the finest fleet or the most powerful army. Among
the books published in England, in France, and
in 'Germany, the difference is not striking ; be
tween the English newspapers and those of other
countries, tbe distance is enormous. They have
assumed on the continent that it suffices to imitate
the constitutional forms of the English Govern
ment. They begin to see that without a. well
informed, reasonable, and influential press, theso
forms are not enough for the establishment of
In fine, France may come forth from her
present severe trial regenerated, as Prussia did
from the disaster .of Jena, But for this she will
have to impose upon herself a stem discipline.
She ought forthwith to devote to education what
she used to give to pleasure and arms, to undergo
the harsh law of compulsory military service, to
purify her manners, to learn respect for tho laws,
and to establish a press .capable of. training
opinion for the enjoyment of freedom. The con
solidation of the Republic raises so many grave
difficulties as to seem almost impossible ; but a
monarchical restoration, inevitable in case of civil
war, and easy1 at first, canld offer no1 guarantees
of stability. It is time for France to brace her
self up, if she would escape the lot of certain
other Catholic countries,' equally incapable of
supporting a regular government, and of estab
lishing free institutions, and laising from revolu
tion into revolution in irremediable dacay. We
may hope that this will not be the destiny ot the
great pe:ple which has done so much to spread
ideas of equality through ; the. world, for that

its rights, will the Republic resist the attack
tnat will resound without a day's cessation in
forty thousand pulpits and eighty thousand con
fessionals? If, to reduce them to bilenee, re
course is had .to the severity of the law, here
would be a persecution of religion as in 1793,
and we know the dangers of that. One must be
a Catholio and live in a Catholic country to ap
preciate the perils of such a' situation. In a
Protestant country people can form no idea of
them. Let us take a recent example. ' il.
Esquiros, a mild and moderate person, as every
body who knew him in England can testify, de
crees at Marseilles the expulsion of tbe Jesuits.
A cry is raised on all sides that this is an odious
violation of liberty. Without doubt, such a step
is terribly inopportune at a moment when there
is so much need for assistance from all quarters
to drive the enemy from the country. But this
is what his partisans ' say by way of justification.
Tbe Jesuits teach ultramontane doctrines ; these
doctrines condemn absolutely all modern liber
ties ; if, then, the entire youth of the country is
formed by them, these liberties will be annihi
lated. We have thus to make our choice be
tween the liberty of the Jesuits to-day, and the
liberty of France to-morrow. We will not hesi
tate to sacrifice tfio first to tho second.
, ill France remain a Republic ? Scarcely any
one believes that it will, except the most enthu
siastic among the republicans. Yet this would
evidently be tbe best thing she could do. To b
gin with, it is the regime qui divise le mains, as
M.Thiers said in 1848. Next, now that there
is a claimant the more, the Prince Imperial, the
dangers which would menace any restoration
would .be greater than ever. The new sovereign
would have against him not only two or three

i Io.,this year? tlicrc will be fifty-three.Suodays,'
but only fifty-two weeks. Nowhere during the
year does Sunday como oftener tlian once in seven
days. The first week in tbe-year begins . with
Sunday, and so-all the other weeks. This may
appear mysterious at first but by consulting the
calendars for 1871 and 1872, it will be seen that
the last week in 1871 begins with Sunday, and
has a Sunday following it. As two Sundays can
not come together the year 1872 begins i witlr
Monday, and, it being Leap Year, Sundays will
occur once in seven days .thereafter. s I'h ar
rangement will place Sundays at the end of the
week instead of the beginning, and is a complete
theological triumph for the Seventh Day Baptists.
This complication of the calendar is supposed to
have been planned by the Jews; who, on account
of their superior education, were intrusted with
its revision. iTbis explanation ia not to-be bind-.
