After the de..th of the Duke of
Richst;adt, in 1832, he became the
successor of the Great Napoleon, not,
by regular dc.,cc:t, but by virt ue of
the Imporial edicts, of 1804and 1805,
which fixed the order of suaeession ill
the heirs of Joseph, instead of the
older brothers of the first Emperor.
Soon after this, Louis seemed to have
come to the conclusion that destiny
had fixed upon him as the deliverer ot
the French Repuhlicans, and, in con
nection with Colonel Vaudnry, and
other officers of the ga:rison of S,tras
bourg, on the Jth of GOithor, 1836,
he proclaimed a revolutivn. ''his

instead otf being executed for iesur

through the initerees,ioni of his moth-.

Comuing to this country, lhe lcd a
life of idleness for aome time, and
then went to South America. Soon
after, he returned to Europe, and re

It i, relatl of the Carr Nicholas
that, shortly after the Crimean war
broke out, he was strolling through an
ordnance yard at Sebastopol, survey
iug with pride the pyramids of can.
non balls piled up there, when he idly
chanced to strike one of them with
his walking stii"k. It gave back a
rtr.ingo, dull sound. An ex mination
revealed that it was nmade of wood,
and the tame exaggertted wooden
nutneg imnpm,ture had been practihed
by the contractor in supplying all the
balls there stored away.. Following
up this clow the Czar asuertnindd that
jobbing and fraud per.vaded all do.
partments of the army service, and
that, except on paper, his empire was
in no condition to contend with th(
allied powers. Napoleon's army and
military eqnipmcnt and provisions are
not as deficient and delu,ive us those
of Nicholas; but they fall far shut't
of what he and the world expected
them to be. We question, in the first
place, whether the active army was
an)thing like 400,000 strong. We
have never been able to figure u.
more than 250,000 of 275,000'regular
French troops in the advance on Pru -
sin ; and we believe that the actual
enumeration of the men at his con
ua nd was the principal reason that
induced Napoleon to stand on the
dJfensive instead of attempting an
inivasion of Pru.-sia. Somebody-or
-o:ue military ring-has been dcceiv.

of the rationus and rnpplies of a pap< r

capable of taking the fild at short
nuotie, why have they riot teen availa

More than a year ago we read the
statement that France had o%er a
million chassepots in her arseotels:
and the government factories were said
to be still turning them out. But
imtmedi!ately after MoMahon's defeat,
comnplaints began to be rife that'Frnnoe
was short not only of chassepots but of
every kind. The Frenuh commtidsariat
is worse, if pussible, than anj other
branch of the service, if we may be.
lieve a tithe of the statements made
by correspondents. MeMahon's army
wJs repres.nted to be almost sta-v ing
for some days, and that, too, in a re
gion in easy coml)muniention with the
,pital. All these deficiencies and
weaknerses in the French army, dis
closed by the light of events, ustonish
those who believe tha', since 1866,
France has been making unremitting
efforts for a war with Prussia. Either
she has had no serious intention of
lighting Prussia in tll that time, or
the Empe.ror has been grossly duped
by his favorites, who hr.vo deluded
him into the belief that France was
prep:ired "to confront every eventuali
ty" (to quote from his rpeech to the
bodies of State, January 18, I869,)
