THEO. n. DAVIFS.
43-lyS Xgait .Brit. IW. Mar.Jnt. (b. ILtmtttJ)
Paris, July 13th, 18T0.
Mir. Editor. The warlike tendencies alluded
to in my last, have made an undeniable progress
during the last two weeks, and have assumed a
very threatening character, as will appear by the
following sf etch of Mr. le Doc de Grauimont, the
French Minister of Foreign AQjfrs, which was
delivered on the 6lh insL, in tho Legislative As
44 1 come, gentlemen, to answer to an interpel
lation made yesterday by Hon. Mr. Cochery.
It is true that Marshal Prim has offered to give
to the Prince of Hohenzollern the crown of Spain,
which the latter has accepted, but the Spanish
people have not yet committed themselves, and
we do not yet tnow the true details of a nego
tiation Which has been hidden from us.
A discussion of the question could not there
fore bring about any practical solution, and we
request you, gentlemen, to adjourn the same.
We have never failed to give proofs of our in
terest in the welfare of tho Spanish nation, and
to avoid every thing that might bear the appear
ance of an interference in the internal affairs of a
noble and great nation, in tbe full exercise of its
sovereignty; we Lever once departed from the
strictest neutrality toward the divers pretenders
to thatthrone; and we never evinced for any of
them signs of satisfaction or of displeasure.
Wc shall persist in the same attitude, but we
do not believe that tbe respect due to the rights
of a neighboring people, should bind us to suffer
that a foreign power, by placing one of its
Princes on the throne of Charles Vth, may be
allowed to disturb, to our detriment, the 'actual
equilibrium of the forces of Europe, (here the
Minister was interrupted by enthusiastic cheers)
and to put in jeopardy the interests and honor of
France. Such a contingency, we firmly believe,
will not take place.
To avoid it, we reckon at the same time, on
the wisdom of the German people and on the,
friendship of the Spanish nation.
But, were il to be otherwise, relying upon jour
assistance, gentlemen, and that of the nation, we
would be enabled to fulfil our duties without
hesitation or weakness."
The general and maifest favor with which the
declaration of the Duke ot Grammont was re
ceived, cannot leave any doubt as to what would
be the course pursued by France, in the case of
the accession of the Prussian Prince to the
throne of Spain. But, although at no variance
on the subject itself, public opinion is somewhat
divided in relation to tbe opportunity of the
speech made by the French Minister, and some
say, with reason as I will admit that before mak
ing a "casus belli" of the candidateship of the
Prince Hohenzollern, it might have been advis
able to await the supreme, decision and sanction
of tho ' Cortes," which have been convoked for
the 20th tnst. to decide, in last resort, on this
important affair, as it is a subject of great doubt
whether the representatives of the people will
permit the realization of Marshal Pnm's projects.
The name of Murat and the bombardment of
Madrid are too fresh in tho minds of the Span-'
lards to give to his descendant serious chances
of success ; but the attitude of the French As
sembly may induce them to overcome their anti
pathies, in order to resist what they will call a
pressure on the part of the French diplomacy.
I have no doubt that ere this reaches Honolu
lu, you will be acquainted, by the medimn of the
Allanlic cable, with the principal features of the
Prusso-Franco-Spauish contes, but, as I have
had during my stay in the Islands, a sad expe
rience of tbe accuracy, both in names and dates,
of the above agent of transmission, I will make it
a point for those of your readers who have been
aware qf those deficiencies, to give you, day by
day, correct and official items in relation to the
difficulties of old Europe.

Tbe House of Lords has adopted, on third read
ing, on the 2Slh of Jnne. the Irish Land Bill.
The Lords bad toted some amendments to the
bill sent by the House of Commons, but those
amendments destined to lessen in a certain de
gree, tbe suppression of the privileges of the
land owners, do not aflect the essential parts of
the agrarian reform, as conceived by the Cabinet
and supported by the Commons.
The house of Commons has devoted their last
meetings to tbe discussion of tbe bill introduced
by the Cabinet for the development of primary
education, and for the creation, to that effect, of
a large number of Schools to be established in
those places that have none.
School Bureaus, elected by the people and com
posed as far as feasible, of members taken from
the different classes of society, shall be appointed
in the parishes, in order to superintend the teach
On tbe occasion of the discussion of this bill,
tbe radical party, which find its support in the
" Work associations," had organized in the King
dom, a movement with a view of carrying out
their schemes, viz : tbe establishment of an ele
mentary form of education, under the auspices
of the State, but exclusively directed by laymen,
gratuitous and obligatory.
The Government opposed tbo38 amendment
and maintained, with firmness that the religious
education must be the object of tbe sollicitude of
tbe state, and that tbe local ll'ireaus should be
empowered to enforce it in llu public schools.
Efficacious measures would however, be taken to
insure tbe liberty of conscience.
The Government, as well as the majority of
the house, also refused to introduce, in an
absolute manner, the amendments relative to tbe
gratuitous and obligatory character of elementary
education, but arrangements have ben entered
in the bill providing for the establishment of as
many gratuitous schools as possible in tbe poor
districts, and tbe infliction of a light fine oa the
parents who neglect, without a good excuse, to
send their children to Fchool.

that he bad been obliged to conceal tho feelings

Before closing, I will give you tho latest in

Last Saturday, Mr. Benedetti, tho French Am
bassador to the Court of Prussia, delivered into
His Majesty's hands an autograph letter from
Xapoleon III, which, very courteous in its form,
was very clear and to the point. Tho Emperor
requested tho King of Prussia to formally refuse
to Prince Hohenzollern the authorization of ac
cepting the crown of Spain, and ho quoted some
precedents, among them, tho refusal made by
Emperor Alexander II to tho Duke of Lenchten
berg, his nephew, to accept either the Crown of
Greece or that of Roumania.
The King of Prussia, according to the version
published in tho " ConstitutionneV asked for
time before giving an answer, but another news
paper says that ho declared to Mr. Benedetti
that, as a member of the family of Prince Leo
pold, ho would willingly adviso him to renounce
bis candidateship, but that, as King of Prussia
and head of the North German Confederation, ho
wanted to reflect and to surround himself with
bis ordinary Councillors.
The French Government being informed of
the answer of the King of Prussia sent instruc
tions to Mr. Benedetti and insisted that the de
lay should be as short as possible.
The ConstUutionnel adds to the above details
an information of the utmost gravity :" It is now
known as absolutely certain that the King of
Prussia had authorized Prince Leopold to accept
the crown of Spain."
The Times implores the French Ministers not
to be too hasty, and belives that, with a sincere
desire of maintaining peace, the question in dis
pute could be settled in half an hour, and suggests
the idea of a friendly meditation of England,
Russia, Austria and Italy.
All this is very reasonable and if the preten
sions of Prince Leopold is but a mere pre
text of war, and if both the French and Prussian
Governments are desirous of peace, it will be
nn easy matter to avert the inpending calamitycs.

the Minister of Foreign Affairs read in the Leg
islative Assembly the following declaration :

bad not any other object bat this renunciation
are rut yet terminated. It is impossible there

of the same.

lamation from tbe Emperor to tbe people of France:
Frmehmtn. Tbere are in the life of a people
solemn moments, when national honor violated,
presses Itself Irresistibly above all other Interests
aud applies Itself witb a single purpose of directing
the destinies of a nation. One of these decisive
hours bas now arrived fur France. Prussia, to whom
we bavc given evidence during and since tbe war of
I860, of the most conciliatory disposition, bas held
our Government of no account, and bss returned
our forbearance by encroachments. She has aroused
distrust In all quarters, necessitating exaggerated
armaments and bas made of Europe a camp where
reigns disquiet and (ear of tbe morrow. A final in
cident bas disclosed tbe instability of tbe inter
national understanding and shown tbe gravity of
tbe situation in the presence of ber new pretensions.
Prussia was made to understand our terms. They
were evaded and followed witb contemptuous treat
ment. Our country manifested profound displeas
ure at this action and qnickly a war cry resounded
from one end of France to the other. There remains
for us nothing but to confide our destinies to tbe
chance of arms. .
We do not make war upon Germany, whose inde
pendence we respect. We pledge ourselves that tbe
people composing tbe great German nationality
shall dispose freely ol their destinies. As for us we
demand tbe establishment of a state of things guar
anteeing our security and assuring the future.
We wish to conquer a durable peace based on tbe
true interests of tbe people, and to assist lo abolish
ing that' pernicious condition of things when all
nations are forced to employ their resources in arm
ing against each other. The glorious flag of France,
which we once more unfold in the face of tbe chal
lengers, is tbe tame wblcb bas been borne in tbe
front of tbe European civilizing ideas of our great'
revolution, wbicb represents the same principles,
and it will Inspire tbe same devotion.

The French Pestlea at Mctz.
LoitDow, July 3tn.
A special correspondent of the New YorklWiuna
at Metz, on Sunday nlgbt, sent the following-letter,
containing the first clear statement of the French
position and plans:
I lea Hagenau near the Rhine on tbe 30th, tak
ing the train by a line which leads past Bitche and
Saarguemlnes to Metz. Along this line warlike pre
parations of every kind are to be seen. I passed
field batteries, parked and complete, in different
shutlng places, until I got tired of looking at them.
We saw more tbtn one single party of horsemen
and one whole regiment walking along tho highway,
which, Just before we arrived at the Vofgea Mount
ains, ran parallel with tho rails. The regiment
seemed In the highest spirits as they waived, their
hands and spurred their Jaded steeds into a trot.
We arrived at tbe Vosgcs in tbe afternoon about!
o'clock. This range of htlfs, which tskes its rise
near Belfort, runs parallel with the Rhine until It
lopes down to the lowlands about Coblentz and
Mayence, where the Strasburg, Bitche and Metz lines
plerco the range. Tbe Vosgcs have always been
considered the second line of defense of France on
tbe East, Tbere Is a society called the French Tre
nerles of the Vosgcs, which, on a small scale, bears
some resemblance to our volunteers. As a self-
organized force it seems contrary to tbe military
genius of France. They have always been consid
ered in an amusing light by the French Journals,
which are now, however, expressing astonishment
at finding that the bands of the Vosges are seriously
demanding permission to. elect a General to co-operate
with the regular forces.
After winding for some time through a defile, be
fore we bad altogether discussed tbe western slope
of the Vosges, we arrived at Bitche, a small fortified
place. We passed camp after camp, many of them
small, but everything evinced tbat they were the out
laying parts of a huge force. From Bitche to 8sr-
cuemluea Is about 20 miles; and, throughout this
distance of 20 miles, or 90 miles In all, the line con
stantly approaches within afew miles of the frontier,
between Bltcbe and Saarguemlnes, their numbers
have evidently Inspired the French confidence; but,
beyond the latter post, It was clear that tbe line,
(which, as it leads from Metz to Bltcbe, is Just now
of extraordinary Importance,) was carefully picketed.
Of course I only saw a portion of the precautions
takeu: but I could observe that at Important points,
such as those where roads crossed the line, there are
camps of cavalry and artillery combined. These
were evidently placed to support the vldettes and
pickets, whlcb are guarding tbe frontier from sur
prise. When we got abont 30 miles west of Saargue
mlnes, the aspect ol affairs became tamer, and we
did not see camps oftener than once In ten miles,
and only passed, at the stations occasionally, trains
laden with supply material and personal goods; but
the line from Strasburg to some distance beypnd
Saarguemlnes bas left stamped upon my memory
impressions not likely to be effaced by stronger
ones. I fear I cannot reduce these Impressions io
writing; bnt some faint idea may be conveyed by
Imagining a crammed railway line in wblch all tho
trains were filled with soldiers cheering and being
cheered; tbe station j lined with sympathizing spec
tators; trucks laden with guns In such numbers
tbat one ceased to take interest in tbcm ; tbe roads,
wben they could be seen from the trains, encumbered
witb cavalry; and lastly, forattheverylfasttwcnty
milesi between Bitche and Saarguemlnes, it was so
thick tbat 1 could hardly make out whether I was
passing through one or several camps. An abund
ance of food, forage and wood was stored along tbe
line. This last puzzled me until I found that this
portion of the French railroads are supplied with
coal from tbe Prussians mines, wblcb, it Is feared,
tbe Prussians will flood before abandoning. But
one feature struck meas conspicuous by Itsabscnce;
tbere was but little show of baggage or baggage an
imals. I saw, also none of the droves of cattle
wblcb might bavc been expected to be seen with a
Dispatches received from Tblonville, Slerck (11
miles north of Tblonville), St. Avoid, Metz and
Bitche, state tbat tbe army bas commenced to move
to the frontier. The Imperial Guard bas already
started. It is now thought certain tbat the Emperor
designs closing in on tbe Prussians between Thlon
vlllo (on the Moselle), and Welssenburg (near tbe
Rhine), throw Ing an army on tbe German side of
the Rhine. This army is composed of three corps,
commanded by Generals Fallley, Dounal, and Mac
Mahon. An attack will be made by tbe Baltic fleet
on Stralesund, ntntb of Berlin.
France denies tbe authenticity of the secret treaty
said to have been offered to Prussia,
Metz, August X
Yesterday, wben the heights of Saarbrnck were
occupied, a battery of Mltrailleuese played upon
tbe enemy's position in presence of tbe Emperor,
lie ordered tbe officer in charge not to Are unless It
was necessary, as the Prussians were bidden In the
prairie; but afterwards, a detachment of the enemy
was seen near tbe railway at a distance of 1000 met
res, and was fired at and left half their number on
the field. Tbe second detachment met the same
fate: after which the enemy feared to appear. The
prisoners taken confess to tbe superiority of the
French gnns. .
