Tbe Government or the Xational Defense bas
a33re&ed to following important Circular to
tte-Freach Diplomatic Agent abroad :
Torus, October 10th.
A! races: M. de Bismarck, on the 1 3th and
IGUief .September laat, bas addressed to the
Bijjfesialic Arents of the Northern Confedera
tfoo i (areolars, calculated to justify in the
ye of Eorape the exacting demands of Prnssia.
Tb argamems of the Chancellor, which he after
ward repeated at Ferrieres in his conversations
with M. Jules Favre, convey in substance, that if
Fraasa bas a desire to annex territories, it is not
is the spirit of canqoeit, bat solelv to assnre to
Gejuunr a lasting peace, and to gnard her against
tie attacks which it bas been at all times the
ofejeet T France to make. He wishes, he says,
to shelter Germany from the inenrsions of a
warHke Brbbor, whose ambition has do ceased
fr cestsries from menacing the security and in
depesdeaee of the German people. It is not the
erst use that M. de Bismarck ascribes to those
vbea be wishes to attack the very projects
vMah Ire bimsetf entertains. AVe can not admit
ehker tbe premises which ho sets forth, or
the ceaquesces which he deduces therefrom,
leasee is not what he wishes to make her. A
hasty pknee at ber history does not permit this
Jedpseol of ber. Let w take facts, and inquire
wial France has been aiming at for the last
ceaisnr a period sufficient to become acquainted
wkb tbe spirit of a nation. It is the duty of
Batfoss to remain bound by their past policy,
bat ibis ebfigntiofl only pledges their honor, and
progress for them would be a wprd devoid of
eese If they Were condemned to travel always
In the greove is which interests lost sight of, or
passiMs hereafter without object, obliged them.
France f te-day no more resembles the France
reversed by Louis XIV". than Germany of to-day
tJes tbe HeJy Empire. The war of conquest
was. at tint epoch, if not the right, at least tbe
oearaen practice of Monarchies. The Uevolu
tie at ITS9 bad as its result a political change ;
pece Is a oeoditkm necessary to liberty. France
Bade for ber&etf a new ideal ; sufficiently strong
beeeeferlh to be independent, she sought less to
fofemeeer over the people than to enlighten them
ber example. That which she bad just ac
CMiplisbed In America for the United States,
tht was ready to re -commence in Europe. Who
ea4eavre4 to extinguish the light which she
tfcos sbed around her? who rose up in arms to
arrest is its first flight the genius of the French
Kuroiuliou T No ingenuity of language, no his
torical cavil wiH prevail against this fact: the
Bcnhiiwu of 1789 opened np a new era, and
fewke down the traditions of the past : Prussia
was tbe first te fight against K.
Pnm the israsion of 1792 dates the beginning
e-f tlwse fatal rivalries which were eventually to
Mag abet the present calamities. France re
fMlsei aggression ; but she wo3 carried away, we
aekaowfedce it, beyond legitimate reprisals. She
bad ssSsred cruel injuries ; she allowed herself to
be reraone by the intoxication of victory.
Jejae. was a reveege. Leipzig and Waterloo fol
lowed, aed reminded the French that if it is
permitted a people for a time to renounce their
ewm Mepeadeeee, tbey can not wth impunity
strike a Maw at that of other nations.
Frasee, bewever, recovered from her disasters,
and roowqnered herself. From the moment at
wbieh K became impossible to engage her with
et ber oonseet. what war has Ehe provoked?
"Vbere is seen that spirit of ambition, and eager
Bess after conquest which M. de Bismarck at
tributes to us? Who. more than we, during
there twaetifal years, has contributed to the
aMateBasce of peace in Europe ? France had
already paid dearly for the faults of the first Em
pire. However much modern opinions were yet
feUered, their influence was felt nioYe and more
fo fte foreign policy of the country. Whereker
there was a people to deliver, liberties to defend,
a Bond grasdear to acquire. France was found
ready. Tbe Restoration battled for Greece ;
too Momrchy of July insured the independence
of BJjjiuiit. and those ideas were so firmly fixed
at tbie ported in the consience of the nation that
tbe seeead. Empire understood that hencefoVth it
Best think with them, and proclaim loudly that
it brought peace. France believed it. The Em
pire, however, had need of military prestige, and
eoagbt it But the wars which it undertook had
s character far different from those of Napoleon
1, for If it (tbe second Empire.) at times stemmed
tbe pacific current which the nation was bent on
faMewiag. it did not ren I asunder the principles
which the nation had adopted. In tbe Crimea,
Franc, is company with two free peoples, fousht
for the independence or Turkey. It was to de
liver a friendly nation that our armies scaled the
Alps in 1659. The Mexican adventure itself,
bkaed and discussed so energetically, and rightly
bf tbe liberal party, could never have been ex
plaieed but by means of theories, chimerical it is
true, but which repudiated in advance all thought
of eeoquest. What is there in common between
these principles, consecrated by a practice of
mere than half a century, under four different
repraes, and the policy of "fire and sword"
winch, since 1864, has been let loose over Eu
rope? What act, or what promise of France
can make her answerable? Who spoiled Den
irsrk? openly forced Austria into war? violently
Mx?d Hanover, Hesse, Frankfort. 4c? roused
nil Europe's slumbering passions and shook it to
iu centre? France has only intervened in this
crisis to hasten and secure peace.
They talk of the warlike ardor of the nation,
and of the petty jealousies which the victories of
Prussia Jiad excited. But immediately after
Sadewa, at the time of the irritating incident of
Luxembourg, opinion in France was decidedly
declared against war, and tbe German press itself
was obliged to acknowledge it ; moderation was
found to be oa our side. When, finally, the war
broke oat in the month of July lost, who could
deny that Prussia had done every thirg in her
power x tbe last four years to arrive at this end ?
Throwing aside her political conduct, and the
wtHful coc-performance of the Treaty of Prague,
she was formidably armed and ready in eight
days to enter upon the campaign. Events have
shown to what extent her prepartions, under
taken long aco, have been pushed : on the con
trary.it is tell known bow they had been neg
lected by France. Not only were the. armaments
-of Prussia complete, bat her alliances were con
rduded ; she wi evidently determined, to draw
-si into a formidable conflict. We can speak
freely of this war, for the members of the present
Government hav done all in their power to turn
aside the horrors of war from the country. We
loudly proclaim that, notwithstanding tbe be
havior of Prussia, the real motive of the struggle
was Dot justifiable ; and M. de Bismarck could
not eeriucsly stigmatize us with the publications
of certain writers, and tba manifestations of an
excited mob. These were isolated acts, without
support in the country, and which did not go be
yond the confused agitation which all public
emotion raises in great cities.
M. de Bismarck knows the value of these
tiicgt What people, however, will not allow
theaselre to ba easily carried away at the first
cry of war? Governments are always sure to
kindle enthusiasm when they promise glory and
triumph. That is why their responsibility is so
great. But at tbe first check, when they are not
going along with opinion, their fall is inevitable.
This result has been produced as well under the
second as under the first Empire. Both must of
necessity fall ; enterprises which they were pur
suing were unjust. As to the affirmation of M.
de Bismarck that the Empire was coerced by
public opinion, the very facts give him an un
qualified denial. Consulted at tbe time or the
Legislative elections of 18C9, tbe people had af
firmed in the roost energetic manner their love of
peace. The same tendencies were "Shown, and
very explicitly, at the time of the plebiscite of
tbe 9th of May, 1870, to sncb an extent that two
months afterwards, the Government had for the
first time for many years to reduce tbe contin
gent of the army.
This concession, demanded by 'the state of
feeling, proves with all the evidence of an actual
fact how far France was from all warlike ideas in
the month of July. The renewal of the councils
general had again, a short time previous, furnished
a fresh occasion Tor the display of these aspira
tions. But we even possess an official document
which proves in tie most formal manner that, far
from having been led away by public opinion, the
Empire, on the contrary, was seriously perplexed
to know if it would be followed by it. So little
was it assured of its obedience, on a declaration
of war, that it was thought necessary to take its
opinion expressly on this suljpct. .The Prefects
received orders to report to the Minister of In
terior the impressions caused in the departments
by this sudden news. Their replies, published
since that time in the Journal Officid, after the
2nd of October, leave no ground for any doubt.
I he first impulse ha3 been astonishment and
surprise," wrote one Prefect. Others eay : "This
new, bursting forth in tbe midst of a profound
calm,.ha3 caused great emotion." . War is con
sidered so great a scourge that we do not wish to
believe it." The ardent desire of maintaining
peace displayed itself everywhere. "I believe
that at bottom we dread war," wrote one or the
most populous and enlightened of the depart
ments. " No one," said another Prefect, " wishes
for war, should it be the result of the great social
uneasiness that is spreading over the country."
" This country wants peace," also writes another ;
" it will only accept war with repugnance j" and
others in the same style : "The population cer
tainly do noti want war, and long ardently for
Everywhere burst forth this sentiment : that
we would only accent war if it was for the honor
of the country. We clung with eagerness to the
last hope of peace. "When it shall be proved,"
writes a prefect, "that everything has been tried to
arrive at this result unavailing!-, we shall decido
to submit to the consequences of a collision of
which we are afraid." We could multiply cita
tions. Out of 89 prefects' reports, 11 only men
tion complete approbation ; all the others betray
the same prejudice, or the same repugnance. This
then is an incontestable fact. Thus ' it remains
established that France did rot menace the in
tegrity of Germany ; her history for more than
half a century proves it so on all its pages. She
never meditated conquests; aspirations of an op
posite nature animated her; and in fact, even
while her disposition did not urge her to it, the
clearest sense of her interest compelled her to a
pacific course. Such is the nation against tbe
inenrsions of which M. de Bismarck wishes to
protect Germany, and tho territorial dismember
ment of which appears to him the only safe
guarantee for the tranquility of the German
people. The line of the Rhine, according to him,
is no longer sufficient; he wants the line of the
Vosges and the Moselle. He must have, now-a-daye,'Al?ace
and Lorraine, and. this at the very
time when Germany has just changed her interior
constitution. After 1815, Europe alteady dread
ing the expansive force of the German people,
strove to give her (Germany) a Constitution, the
basis of which was exclusively organized on the
defensive, and France, although the treaties of
Vienna were directed against her, was left in the
state she is found now. Her northern frontier,
facing Germany, is entirely open. The results
of the present war furnish an indisputable proof
of this. And while France has modified nothing
in her organization, Germany has raised herself
the most formidable State a power has ever at
tained : Absolute military unity, personal and
direct action from tbe leader who bears the Sword
of command, military service obligatory on all,
we ak whether Fance or Germany is now the
menacing party. Not more in 1870 than in 1792
has Prussia had need to guard against the attacks
of France. It is without doubt that the Prussian
Government seeks rather offensive facilities than
better lines of defense. One does not tee well,
in fact, how Germany would be better protected
because her frontier would be carried further for
ward. In case of invasion the country.occupied
would then be the territory annexed to Germany,
and the scene of action would simply be carried"
from one province into another; and what would
be the result of these Molent annexations of terri
tories which do not wish to cease being French?
Without speaking of the sentiment which is re
pugnant to every honest mind, of thus seeing
populations submit to a nationality contrary to
their aspirations and their past, it would tend to
perpetuate war. In fact, is it possible that the
feeling of France could ever be alienated from
countries which, having so nobly borne so many
misfortunes and so gloriously shed so much blood,
are nnited to her by bonds which cat.not be
broken. Tho turmoil which would arise from this
would agitate Europe, without the possibility of
hoping henceforth for one moment of repose. It
is clearly seen in the setting forth of such preten
sions, demanding such concessions. M. de Bis
marck is making for himself new wars which are
necessary to him in order to attain the end to
which a boundless ambition is hurrying him on.
What the German people want is, national unity
and political liberty ; liberal Franqe could not be
opposed to this It is a jnst cause, and we would
be repudiating our past policy if we were to op
pose it. Bat there is an abyss between these
aspirations and the doctrine evolved and applied
by M. de Bismarck. If we weigh the events
which have happened in Europe during tbe last
ten years, we must see that Prussia has herself
taken tbe course which she with so much in
justice attributes to as. It is not possible to
have a doubt in this respect after the reception
by M. de Bismarck if M. Jales Favre's noble
advances. If France fails, there is yet another
war menacing Europe, paralysing every flight of
thought, all civilization, all progress or the pros
perity of the people.
France not only straggles for the integrity of
ber soil, ber honor and her independence, but she
fights also to maintain the balance of power in
Europe. Receiye, Sir, etc
