THE NEW REIGN OF TEKttOB W
PAWS STILL FllANCE?
PrvmthtN. r. Htiald.
Our news from France is qnito sufileient to
make the heart nick. No such dishoartening
news to those who loved the French people
has been received in the memory of living
men. We forget not the whole interval Hince
July of last year, nor, indeed, the interval
since 178!) a long interval, certainly, but in
the history of French sorrow not by auy
means to be overlooked. It is fair, we think,
to Bay that the news of the last few days has
made the name of France almost stink in
the nostrils of every man wsho was angry
with Germany and who persisted in hoping
What is the situation? After a war of more
than eight months France has been compelled
to bow to the conqueror. Her Emperor has
been for over six months a prisoner in the
hands of the enemy. Ilia Empress and all
those, including his son, who belonged to
what was called the Regency, have been for
the same space of time exiles in England. As
nearly as possible, four hundred thousand of
the picked men of France, the best and most
trusted generals of the empire included, have
been, Bince Sedan, prisoners in fortresses
absolutely under German control. Since
Sedan France has revealed no lack of pluck;
but the six months' fighting, whatever we
may say of the pluck, has served mainly
to exaggerate France's misfortunes; and,
what is more important still in the
premiscB, the French people,
the late of their country, have, m a consti
tutional manner, made peace with the con
queror and persuaded the armies of the con
querer to retire. The French people cannot
deny that by a fair, constitutional rote the
present National Assembly was elected and
M. Thiers made President of the republic.
There are few men who will refuse to admit
that the terms imposed upon France by the
German leaders were hard and, indeod,
heavy; but the Germans went about their
work with so much caution and consideration
that no man of intelligence, no matter how
much he sympathizes with France, can help
confessing that the French people fairly
tested and fully endorsed the peace policy
of the government of M. Thiers. In
good faith the Prussians have been
gradually evacuating the conquered
strongholds and leaving France to the French.
For a time the promise was bright. It wa9
the opinion of many thoughtful men that
although the money demands of Prussia were
something unprecedented, the demand for the
cession of territory something more than
humiliating, and the whole peace arrange
ment altogether too hard, France had mag
nanimously bowed and done the best she
could do in the circumstances. To-day every
well-wisher of France and of the French peo
ple has changed his mind, and the universal
sentiment is that the French are absolutely
nnnt tor sen-government, it was once a
proud boast to be a Roman citizen. It is a
source of pride at this moment to be able to
Bay "I am an American, or a Britisher, or a
German;" but where is the man who is not
ashamed to confess "I am a citizen of
France?" The deeds of the last two days
have appalled the world, and many look
upon France as another Poland which
ought to be occupied, partitioned, extin
fraished. The treachery of the soldiers, and the cold
blooded murders of General Clement Thomas
and General Lecomte ,(and while we write
who can tell how' many more?) revive the
worst memories of the past. We think of
the storming of the Rastile, of the July
horrors, of the September massacres, of the
Goddess of Reason and the associated blas
phemies, of the fusillades, the noyades, the
guillotine, and all the other horrors real and
imaginary of the Reign of Terror. ( Another
Committee of Public Safety, another Danton,
another Marat, another Robespierre rise up
before us, and we ask, How is this fresh out
burst of revolutionary violence to end ? Are
we to have another feeble Directory, another
Consulate, another Empire ? Are new names
to figure in the destruction of another Direc
tory ? Is Gambetta, or some such, to figure
as a new despot by the special will of the
French people ?
These questions are not by any means out
of plaee in present circumstances. No one
can tell what may happen. Anything every
thing is possible. We are willing to believe,
however, that Paris, in spite of appearances,
is no longer France in the ancient sense.
The railroad, the telegraph, and the news
paper have made wondrous changes during
the last sixty years. Already the order-loving
people of the capital city talk of appealing to
fhe provinces or to the Germans for relief.
We have not much faith in the provinoes, for
the reason that the provinces are controlled
by the large cities. The provinces cannot save
Paris except by a vote; but if anarchy reigns
in Paris it is difficult to see how a provincial
vote can be obtained. King William, it is
Baid, has halted in his homeward march, aud
as the Germans are now as much interested in
the peace and prosperity of France as are the
French themselves, it is not at all impossible
that King William will send back Mauteuffel
or some other skilful general, at the head of
a sufficient number of men, to do for Franc
what France in her agony confesses she can
not do for herself. If the German troops
should be ordered back, they will of course
occupy Paris only temporarily. King Wil
liam's business will be to give France
a government, as did the allies in 1814 and
1815. With all the facts of the last six
months before him, he cannot for a mo
ment think of a republic. Felled before
the peace, its present feeble efforts cannot
but be despised. The choice is between
the House of Orleans and the House of Bona
parte. We have until now clung to the hope
that the Count de Paris at the end of all this
confusion would find himself in the palaoe of
his ancestors. The Count of Paris,
as the head of the House
of Orleans, seemed to us to present the
best possible solution of the tangled politioul
net wmcn ima war has woven. J. he modera
tion expressed by the French people in the
recent election and the men whom that elec
tion floated into prominent publio view, en
couraged our hope. It was an unmistakable
indication that France was in favor of a gov
ernment which would avoid the extremes of
the republic on the one hand and the ex
tremes of the empire on the other; but
while we wait in vain for some emphatic sign
in faver of the Count de Paris Napoleon has
found his way to EDgland, and on all hand
the admission is made that a new plebiscite,
fairly conducted, will restore Napoleon the
Third. We will not say bow it may result,
but we cannot refuse to admit that the chances
vt the House of Ronaparte are not only
reftter than those of the republicans aud the
monarchists, but more promising than they
were two weeks ago.
Much will depend on ciroumstances which
we cannot foresee. It is possible that the ex
cesses of the mob of Paris will so disgust the
order-loviDg people all over that France, a9
one man, will rally around the person of Pre
sident Thiers. The revival of the Reign of
Terror has no attractions for the Frenoh, pro
perly so-called. They will have anythingthe
Germans in Paris rather than that. On the
other band, however, it is also possible that
apparent success won in the name of the
republic may communicate a dangerous im
pulse to the larger cities, and so demoralize
the great mass of the soldiers. Once more,
we think it must be admitted that Paris is a
curse to France. If Prosident Thiers can
contrive to keep the Assembly together and
away from the . mob he may, without the
assistance of Prussia, succeed in restoring
order. But France seems to stand on the edge
of a smouldering volcano, and we must wait
WHICH PARTY SHOULD GOVERN?
From the X. 1". Times.
After all that we have passed through dur
ing the last few years, it seems quite incredi
ble that Republicans should now be found
laboring with might and main to place the
Government in the bands of the very party
which strove to break up the Union. Such,
however, is one of the unexpected "develop
ments" of this very progressive a;e. Having
shed blood like water for the sake of esta
blishing certain principles, and endured fiscal
burdens such as very few nations have boon
called upon to bear, we are now invited by
Republicans to quietly surrender the Govern
ment to the Democrats. And this advice is
not offered to us under any misapprehension
with regard to the objects and aioi3 of the
Democrocy. To do the leaders and fuglemen
of that party justice, they let us know pretty
plainly what they are driving at. When they
are very much under a cloud, they sometimes
put a guard upon their lips. But they are
just now fully convinced that they have no
longer anything to fear. The dissensions of
Republicans embolden them to come out with
their "programme." They want to "restore
the Constitution" for one thing and what
that means, our experience during the war
ought to have taught us. The great law
givers of the Democratic party tried to con
vince the people that there was no authority
under the Constitution to put down rebellion,
and prevent the dissolution of the Govern
ment. They attach the same importance to
their principles now as they did in 18(il, while
the Republicans, enervated by a long lease of
power, are inclined to think lightly about tha
cause for which they fought.
We can conceive of no greater misfortune
for the country than that which would be in
volved in its relapse into Democratic hands.
Compared with the danger of its falling under
Democratic rule, all other dangers, and all
other issues, seom hardly worth a moment's
consideration. What are local or personal
causes of dissatisfaction in comparison with
the disasters which would certainly overtake
ns within a twelvemonth after the resto
ration of the Democrats to power? The
chief opponents of the Republican party
in this city are the Ecening Post and the
World laborers in identically the same
field. Now, what are the reasons which,
in their judgment, ought to induce
Republicans to break up the party ? The
Pout wants free trade. The World talks of
"avenging Sumner and Motley," of "resent
ing" the "compulsory resignation of Judge
Hoar," and of "teaching Grant a lesson."
These are the inducements which we have for
deliberately undoing all the painful work of
the last few years, and practically giving
fresh vitality to the question whether States
have the right to secede for that i3 what It
will come to when we get to the bottom of
the present controversy. Judge Conway
recently gave us the clue to true
Democratic sentiment when he said in
a letter to a city contemporary: "In the
late war, the South fought against brute
force, not brains. She was overborne in the
field by the strength of her enemies. She
will reap the fruits of a great victory from
their stupidity. Let the South move to the
front ! The future is hers." If the reader is
curious to have some variations of the same
tune, he has only to look over the very care
ful summary of Southern opinion, which we
prepared on Monday, as expressed in South
ern journals received by a single mail. Re
publicans who are in searoh of "campaign
documents" cannot do better than cut that
article out of our paper of Monday, the 20th,
and do the sma thing with similar articles
which we shall lay before them from time to
There is no consideration which should
induce Republicans to throw away a single
advantage that may help them in the next
Presidential contest. It is perhaps a matter
of secondary importance who may be chosen
as the champion of the party, but it is of the
very first importance that the Republicans
should win the fight with somebody. It ia all
very well to say that it is too soon to talk
about the event yet. The Democrats evidently
do not think so, for they have beed at work
for weeks past especially in the South aud
West getting ready for the struggle. Tam
many has plenty of money to spend, and will
have still more when the infamous Tax
Levy bill has handed the entire power
of raising and spending money in this city
over to Tweed, Sweeny, Hall, and Connolly
a measure, let us never forgot, which Repub
licans like Mr. Peter Cooper have heartily
supported. It will be very difficult to coun
teract the effects of the unlimited expendi
ture which Tammany can safely venture
upon. The Republican majority in Congress
ought to try to strengthen the party out of
doora bv everv means in its power. It com
mits a deplorable mistake in separating with
out abolishing the income tax, and without
t akin cr anv pains to convince the people that
a still further reduction of taxation is one of
the objects it has at heart. The Democrats
are at present plaving their came with far
greater astuteness than the Republicans, but
we may trust their own treacherous princi
ples, and their disregard of those interests
which the people prize, to bring them to
grief before the contest is over.
CHARLES SUMNER FOR PRESIDENT!
from the X. V. Sun. 0
That the nomination of Mr. Sumner as the
Presidential candidate of the Democracy
would result in the overwhelming triumph of
that party no one can doubt. He would
carry all the New England States, all the
Southern States, and pretty nearly all the
remaining States. Indeed, we cannot name

More than this, he was first elected to the
Senate by the Democrats of Massachusetts,
among whom he had been born and bred.
During that memorable. Senatorial struggle
he was brought out by the Democracy as their
candidate against the distinguished Whig
nominee, repeatedly received the vote of
every Democratic member of the Legislature,
which at that session happened to contain a
large body of the most inlluential Democrats
in the State, was in the end triumphantly
elected in spite of the strenuous opposition
of the Whigs, led by Daniel Wobstor, and his
success was soon followed by the dissolution
of the old Federal-Whig party, which hid
ruled Massachusetts from the days of Wash
ington. Air. buraner nas on some great occasions
fought shoulder to shoulder with distin
guished Democrats. In 18 18 he affiliated
with the New York Barnburners in support
of Martin Van Buren for the Presidency, and
carried a free lance in that famous struggle

Mr. Sumner s well-known catholicity of
sentiment in regard to existing parties i no
more of an objection to his selection as the
Democratic candidate, in this transition state
of national politics, than was that of General
Jackson to his selection under like circum
stances forty years ago. During the adoiims-
tiation of Mr. Monroe, General Jackson,
who in his youth had leaned toward the
Federalists, and in his riper years had quar
relled witn many ol the leading Democrats
of the country, addressed two or three letters
to Monroe recommending an abandonment
of old party lines and a reorganization of
the political elements of the time on a
broader basis of catholicity, and urging him
to signiiy nis acceptance ot this view of the
situation by appointing prominent Federal
ists to office. So far from these doctrines
proving an obstacle to the subsequent nomi
nation of General Jackson as the Democratic
candidate for the Presidency, they were
heralded by the Democrats themselves as a
striking proof of the forecast of their nomi
nee; and they turned out to be one of the
most popular and attractive elements of his
character during the exciting campaign of
1828, when Jackson, who could hardly be
called a Democrat at all, defeated the coali
tion of Adams and Clay, who had been
leaders of the Democratic party for twenty
This he accomplished by drawing around
him in this contest the great mass of the De
mocracy, ana by rallying to his standard a
large share of its hereditary opponents.
Having thus reorganized the party, he con
solidated its ranks, made a fair distribution
of patronage among his supporters regardless
of their political antecedents, marked out a
line ot poncy auaptea to tne now era on
which the country was then entering, and in
sured to the reconstructed Democracy a long
lease ot power.
W7bat the Democratic party needed in the
days of Jackson they require now. Politics
are in a transition state. Old party lines are
disappearing. And why should the De
mocracy expose themselves to the perils of a
doubtful canvass, when by nominating Mr.
Sumner they may make the election per
fectly sure ? We speak as to wise men and
not to fools.
