And let our soldiers -and statosmen
at hoiti, *iake note of thit. The issue
of that battle (Sedan) was decidad
solely aid entirely by artillery fire.
I do not hre mean to say that if the

on the very spot on the map wh':i6r
MeMahon was to be broght to bay,
cotild b% eVaded and frustrated. But
what I uAsert, after a long exaninattion
of the battle-flild ye-terday, and an
actual observation.ef the progress of
the action itielf, 1is that but for the
deoiddd superiorhy and terrible ofteet
of the PrusAiMe trtikery fire-, the posi
tion of Sed.a could not have been
taken without an appalling loss of life
whereas it. was.won at a comparatively
small expense indeed. It was to the
comparative impotontie of the French
artillery thrau ilt wa duo . Now,
I know th able director of our artil
lery at home is bent on making a
radical change in our system or ord
nance. I do not know how far Colo
nel Adve has yet carried his ideas
into effect, but all artility officers
are aware that tile breach-load
ing system has been condemned in
England,-arid that a stronous effort,
siuccessful at last, has been mado to
adopt the muzzle-loading steel gtyn
and the shrapnel shell. If Conondl
A. had seen the battle-field of Sedan,
I think he would have been shaken in
his strung conviction, if anything
ooutd shake it. I speak of him with
the greatest rAspect, but I entreat him
to stop and inquire before he carriev a
vital change-to icquire into the
circumstances of this' battle and to
see if lie is not of the opinion of the
fallen Emperor, that it was to the
superior iiy of artillerynot in numberP'
but in weight, range and proci.ion, the
victory was due." I do not know
what the relative merits of the Arm
strong and of the Prutsiant breech
lwhders nay be, or what may b'e 'the
dererits of or time and percussion
fuse ; but it is quite clear that any at
