COLUMBIA, November 29.
The Legislature was in full blast to-day. Not
. withstanding the expectation that no business
of Importance would be trausacted until the sen?
atorial election had come otr, a fair amount" o:
legislative work was done.
NEW CANDIDATES FOR THE SENATORS HIP.
The canvass for the - senatorial contest seems to
keep up with unabated vigor. It may seem
strange to some tbat so much money should be
spent, so much real hard work done to secure an
office' under any government Office-seeking ls a.
science by Itself, and but few seem to understand
lt. Those who are "np to snuff," and possess.ex?
perience and knowledge of these matters, are,
after all, most generally those who succeed. One
fact seems to be entirely lost to the sight of most
aspiran*? to office. That ls, that all the work and
paluAiecessary to secure a position must be ex?
erted prtjr to the obtaining such office. Some
seem to imagine that because the pay comes ta
after the position ls secured, the work must come
in then too. They forget that offices are, as it
were, toe reward of severe labor put forth t
tain them. Successful candidates are i
those who will work hardest when they h av
taiued po.sitioiirf.but they are those.who '
the hardest to obtain them.
Let us come to our new candidate?.

WHO is M'INTTRE ?
McIntyre is certainly the chief point of ?nteres
tn the Senate at present. He don't amount t
such a great deal, to be sure, but he had "grea
expectations," and every one has been looking t
see them realized. If Mr. McIntyre was hones
In what he is doing, and was In an honest minorl
ty, we would be Inclined to let him serenely alone
But as we think he is opposed to have thing
work along decently and smoothly in the Senate
we must give him a little showing up.
The gentleman has no history, prior to his be
coming a member of the House two years since,
that would Interest the public. He was slmplj
among the great unkuowa. He had but little il
any prominence there until tnc latter part of ?n?
terin. The "forty thieves" was a body which
was the natural result of the cupidity and igno?
rance o." a large*proportion of the members of the
lower house o' the list General Assembly. The
Bouse started out with a fair business record,
and measures were considered somewhat upon
:heir merlt3. In a short time, however, a few ol
(he more knowing aud scheming ones discovered
lhat, by an organization o' tho worst elements
)f the House, the Legislature could be controlled,
and they benefited. The mate lal was ripe for the
occasion, and the organization was one of rapid
zrowth. The pawer which it possessed, and the
money which lt could control, was sufficient to
lazzle their minds. It had many ups and downs.
The first management was vested in a committee
rf five They, however, were kicked out, having
aeen discovered cheating the main body. Another
:ommittee met a similar fate, and were compelled
o take a back seat. And so on, until five differ
mtiximmlttees had been appointed and decapl
ated. Tho rel us of government next fell into the
lands of our hero., Business wat transacted for
lome little time with a degree of fairness which
leemed to Indicate that the right man had been
?laced In thc right place. He, however, was
irought to grief. The goid'blll was lils collin. He
ell from grace and was crowded out. He became
hereafter one of the honest twelve. Having con
duded that his accomplishments and talents had
lot been appreciated, he decided to run ror sen?
ior, and here wc dud him.
A POSTMASTER OR A SENATOR ?
As a fit cont intuition of the history, wc present
he following resolution offered by Mr. Leslie to
Wliereas, Hon. George F. McIntyre, now hold

ston County, was at the time of his election, on

McIntyre objected, Inasmuch as lt was, as he

McIntyre's resolution consolidating the com?

REPORT OF THE STATE AUDITOR.
The report of the State auditor, contal
many valuable suggestions, ls as follows:
EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT. >?
OFFICE OK AUDITOR OF STATE,
. COLUMBIA, S. C., November 21, 1870
To His Excellency Ii. K. Scott, Governor of Si
GOVERNOR-I have thc honor herewith to ti
mit my-report, with accompanying exhibits
the fiscal year 1SG9:
Exhibit "A" ls an abstract of the real-prop
of the State, classified and arranged By cour
as returned by the county auditors and ec
ized by the state board of equalization for
and revised by the county boards of equallza
for 1869. *
Exhibit "B" is an abstract, of the pers
property of the State, showing the value of <
class or property in the several counties, a
turned by the assessors and equalized by
county boards of i-qualiz.itlon.
Exhibit "G" is a statement showing the vail
railroad property placed upon the duplicate,
the amouut assessed' upon express and telegi
companies In this State.
Exhibit "D" is an abstract of the asrgrei
quantity and value of i eal and personal prop
on the duplicate, as turned over to the cou
treasurers, with J he amount of taxes chat
thereon for State and countv purpose-?.
Exhibit "E" is astatemeiit arranged by c<
ties, showing the total amount collected up to
i tuber 31ar, 1*70, inclusive, on account of poll
aud taxes for general purposes of State gov
ment for the fiscal year i860.
I Exhibit "F" ls a statement showing the ame
codee . od during the fiscal year ending Ootobei
lSTo. on aecouut of taxes for 1858.
By reference to exhibit "D" it will be seen 1
the total value of the property on theduplit
Tor 1889 1s fifteen millions greater than Tori
This Increase ls mainly attributable to the ass
ment or thc South Carolina, Northeastern, (
raw ami Darlington, and Greenville and Colum
Railroads. There ls, however, a slight n:ci eas
other kinds of personal property. From inion
tlon received at this omeo lt ls believed that
assessment mw being 'completed will sho*
very considerable Increase In the aggregate va
or the property of the State.
The vast amount of ruliroa-1 property in
State which has claimed exemption from ta
tlon. has attracted the attention or the pres
administration, and in my report to
lust session of thc General Assembly, 1 8
In reference to this question that, "
less the General Assembly decides otherw
1 will feel compelled to insist upon the
se8Sinent of the property of such eorporatlo
and the collection or the taxes levied thereon,
accordance wli h what i believe to be the pl;
law of the case." The Legislature signified
will in the matter by passing the act No. S
winch was intended to prevent the courts or t
State from Interfering to prevent the collection
taxes levied opon thc railroads or thc Sta
Upon notification, the Cberaw and Darlingu
an-l Northeastern Railroad Companies made I
return required by law, but made it under p
test, as to their liability to taxation. Thc Sot
Carolina Railroad Company neglected to ma
any return, though frequently notified of thc
quirements or the law. After considerable deb
in order that the officers of the compa
might fix their own value upon its pi
perty, the State railroad board of equi
ZHtlon, from the best information at i
command, fixed the value of the road and Its :
purtenances. aud the treasurers or the vario
counties through which the roads pass were I
structed to proceed with the collection or t
taxes levied upon them as In all other casi
Taese corporations, with a view to avoid the tax
thus levied, have procured suits to be broug
against themselves lu the Circuit Court or ti
United States, in order to obtain the Injunction

Preliminary Injunctions have been granted
each case by the Unite 1 States circuit judge. T
attorney-general has appeared for the State lu <
these suits, and has filed answers setting ror
the .right or the State to Impose the taxes In que
tlon. The cases will be brought to argument du
lng the present month.
Without pre-urning to express any opinii
upon the questions nf law Involved in these case
I canuot refrain from calling attention to certa
obvious reflections as to the Interests of the sta
and the Taxpayers generally Involved in the d?cl
lon to be rendered. There IB ID round numbers, i
a very low estimate ten millions or property lu tt
hands ot these corporations, claiming entire e:
emption from taxation, either State.or niutilcipo
At tbe present rate or State taxation, ir these co
pirations paid their share or taxes, those who no
pay taxes to the State would be relieved or th
burden-of taxation : J the extent or $50,000 anni
ally, and the taxpayers In i he various countie
through which these roads pasa, would lie r<
liewa of a propontonato burden. Ia the City <
Charleston, the effect or this exemption Is eve
more disastrous tuan elsewhere. That unforti
nate city ls struggling beneaiL a load or debt an
taxation, which ls an almost Insurmountable ol
stacie In the way orita prosperity, and yet, In th
hands of two corporations, there ls propert
which, ir taxed equally with other propertj
would pav one tenth or the amount annuali
raised by taxation, it should be borne in mini
too, that the evil of this exemption from taxatio:
ls one that "grow* by what lt reeds on." It is
well known fact that the South Carolina Kal
roa-1 Company owns 'much more real est?t
lu the City of Charleston to-day than lt di
two years ago, and there ts nothing, aside Trot
tts want ol liability and will to do so, t > prevent I
from absorbing more and more or the raxabl
property or the city ann State, and thus im pos
heavier burdens upon other property holders,
know lt is thought by some of those immediate!,
interested In this corporation that the presentad
mlnlsi ration ls lu some way opposed to lt, and de
sirousot crippling Its resources. Nothing coull
be m .re unfunded than such a suspicion, lan
glad to admit all that this corporation has don?
Tor the State and the City or Charleston In th
past, and all that lt ls capable or doing Inthi
ju tu re. But it should be remembered that whei
the State extended the privileges to this corpora
lion, which lt claims are perpetual, the Stute wa
abundantly able to bear the burden. To-day then
ls scarcely a railroad corporation In the State tha
ls not better able to bear Hie burdens .ol taxatlot
than the oilier taxpayers are.
The inequitable character of thl* claim to ex
empiion n oni taxation ls so manliest, that a way
to set lt aside must be found.
As a mutter immediately affecting the revenue
of thc Mat", I reel lt my duty to call attention tc
the loose manner in win -h the financial affairs ol
ttiauy of the counties nre conducted. Tue ' ad
defining the jurisdiction and dunes of county
commissioners" provides "that no tax shall be
levien and collected by the county commissioners
until the annie has been authorized by the Gen?
eral Asse.ubly." The General Assembly, for the
fiscal years or ISGS aud 18G9, authorized the levy of
certain taxes ror county purposes. In some
cases, the amount authorized has not been suffi?
cient to meet the expenses or the county. lu
some or tlie counties the commissioners have
audited accounts and Issued their certificates
largely in excess or the amount' autnorlzed to be
raised by taxation, lt seems to me that this ls a
daugeruus practice, and one which should be pro?
hibited by legislation. II the county commission?
ers are compelled to raise money In advance, or
In excess, of the amount authorized to be raised
by taxation, they should be requbed to do lt by
laws regularly made, and beating a fixed rate of
interest. The present mode or proceeding creates
dissatisfaction, and brings reproach upon the ad?
ministration or affairs, in Hie several counties.
lu those States where the system of taxation
und Hie county orgauizations which we have
Adopted prevail, the county auditor ls ex-OfllelO
clerk to tire board or county commissioners. I
think our system would bc unproved by the
EUloptiun of the same rule herc. Thecounty audi
tor, in his official capacity acting as clerk to the
commissioners, could be made a wholesome check
JO( h upon the commissioners and the county
treasurer, by examining aud countersigning all
their orders upon the treasurer, and settling the
accounts of the latter with the commissioners.
Act No. 19-?, passed at the last session, gives to
isse.-sors assigned to assessment .districts of
nore than three miles square, rourdotlars per day.
['lie practical operation of this ls to give that
compensation fo nearly all the ass ssors employ
id, and thereby greatly increase the cost of the
My judgmeut is, that in almost all cases three
lollara per day ls as much as should be paid ror

cniioii to thc matter, and recommend that ir lt
s thought best to discriminate In favor or any
isse-sors, the size ol Hie district in which ln

lt will be observed that the poll tax ls not close

here does not seem to be auy means or enforcing

ill should be collected. 1 simply call attention to

The roilowiug _ resolution was introduced in the
tenate to day:
Resolved by the Senate, the House concurring,
'hat both Hoases meet lu joint assembly on the

ag an associate justice of the Supreme Court, and
Iso a judge or the first circuit, to fill the vacancy
ccasloued by the resignation of it. B. Carpen
In the regular correspondence or the Radical
beet or your city, a rew days since, we noticed
he statement that Chief Constable Hubbard bad
endered his resignation ot account or"a dispute
ribing irom%ts" abuse of certain of the State
officiais. As the responsible correspondent of
that Journal ls, as well, editor of the Union of this
city, thc following item, from the latter paper
seems to violate a consistency so mach to bc de?
sired in journalism: "We see it stated in the
papers that Chief Constable Hubbard has resigned
f his position, and that the same has been accept?
ed. We know nothing about the truth of lt, h JW
ever." It's rather convenient, to say the least,
to be able to present an item or news in its every
light to the public, even ir in diff?rent organs.
CHARTER OF UNION BAKE AMENDED.
The bill to amend the charter of the Dulan Ban*
of South Carolina, Introduced by Mr. Corbla, and
read a second time to-dav and referred to the
committee on Incorporations, has for its object
the consolidation of the shares of the bank, the
par value of which ls $50, but at the pres?

shall, at the request of any person' holding less
Utan ten shares, redeem the same at ave dollars.
Sufficient nnlce shall be given or the consolida?
tion, and of the increase of capital, which, too, is

missioners, assumed charge of the puollc schools
on the 1st of July, 1870; thu ia ihese schools
there are slxry-el;ht teachers employed In the

commissioners have assumed charge they have
had no money wherewith to defray the expenses
of or pay the salaries or teachers; that they are
now in debt to thc teachers, and for o:her cur

missioners were by law of 1848 empowered to levy
a tax fo' the payment of these claims, bot that
the act was repealed In February, 1870 ; the pres
ent deficit ls due to the repeal of the act. They,,
therefore, petition for the enactment of. abother
such law, and a detlclency bin sufficient.to enable
them to cancel their present ladeUtedaess. :
OUR JOBBING TR ABB.
An Outline of Ita History-Capital the
Great Lever-The Effect of ' Usurjr
In an Interesting article, urging the impor?
tance or fostering the Jobbing trade in our sister
city, the Savaunah News presents a carefully
written sketch or the history of the Charleston
Jobbmg interest; which contains Information that
will be new to many of our readers. We quote:
Thc Initiation of the wholesale trade of Charles?
ton was contemporaneous with the establishment
or the Bank or Charleston la 1834. Before that
period the number of wholesale merchants In that
city did uot exceed three or four, who have all
since retired with large fortunes. A few saga?
cious men, among whom were thc late Ker Boyce,
with Henry Gourdin and others, having a Jost
perception of the causes by which the City or
New York bad centralized ihe Importing trade,
determined to apply to the Legislature for a
charter of a bank with a large capital as an agen?
cy indispensably necessary to the healthful ope?
rations of the wholesale trade. The Legislature of
South Carolina was at the time quite averse to
the extension of banking, and it was only by un?
usual energy and perseverance that the projectors
of the enterprise succeeded in obtaining a
charter for a bank with a capital of $3,000,000.
The Bank of thc United Slates havlug withdrawn
Its brauch from Charleston. left a certain void
which was soon Ailed by the new bank; but lt
was soon discovered that nothing but a consider?
able extension of trade and business could and*
employment for so larje an addition to the bank
capital of the city. The projectors of the scheme
found that extension lu an increase of the jobbing
trade-a snb-dlvision of the wholesale trade.
It was soon found that the contrivers had not
misconceived thc causes or the concentration or
that trade, and had not over-estimated the
amount of capital that would be required to ac?
complish the result. The first and most essential
step being taken, the other stages of this im?
portant enterprise followed In naiural succession.
It was plainly perceived that the necessary ad?
vances to sustain the Jobbing trade could be com?
bined with the sale and purchase of both domes?
tic and foreign exchange to the extent or the ex?
ports from Charleston, and by this combination
the prouts could be secured of both branches
the Imports and bills drawn against the exoorts.
The process was very simple. A Jobbing "mer?
chant credited bis customer, whether In South
Carolina, Georgia or Alabama with a bill of $1?,
ooo by a note at four months, and he obtalne i a j
discount of that note at the Bant of Charleston
which, being passed to his credit, enabled him to
remit to his correspondent at Liverpool or New
York, as the case may et, the amount duo on his
Importation, ir he should be, or whoever was, the

The etrect of these arrangements made lt nec?
essary to purchase a site for sto es commensurate
to such operations. A laud company was formed,
composed of persons who controlled the Bank of
Charleston, who purchased i i the centre of ?he
city the square, bounded by Market street on the
south, Pluckney street on the north. Meeting and
Anson streets on the west am east, rn which was
creeled that extenMve range or stores known as
the Hayne street ramre, adjoining t > which was
built the elegant si ruc ure known as the'Cbarles

the wholesale trade from King street, and to ?
conceuirate it in the centre of the city. We have
been thus particular to show the close connection 1
or that trade with the building improvements of i
Having in this brief outline described the
sources of the extension of that trade, lt remains | 1
to state the causes to which lt ow-s its partial de?
cline. Tho great source of Increase ls the aggre
gatton of capital, which could not have been ef?
fected except by the agency or a bank with adc
quate resources, the establishment of which cir?
cumstances favored by the withdrawal of the
Branch Bank of the United States, and the rapid
Increase of the cotton crop. The breaking out or
the war arrested the career or this enterprise, and
the dre Of 18 >l contributed to destroy its facilities
for doing business; still, amidst the wreck of its
former prosperity, we perceive ta Hayne and

and ol partial railure from the. war, and the casu?
alty of a destructive Are, we ask what ls the im?
pediment to the formation of a wholesale trade in
Savannah except the want of capital. Savaunah ?
has Incorporated and well organized bants ade- s
quate to every purpose. There is, however, one c
obstruction to the emigration or capital which the t
Legislature ought forthwith to remove, and that \
is tt.e odious usury law. The State or South Caro- t
lina has expuuged from her statute books this re
lie or a barbarous age, anti thus removed that lin- i
pediment to the inflow or capital from Europe and t
the North. How can Georgia expect to maintain a t
commercial comp?tition with States and cities t
equal to her in natural advantages with snch a e
fetter voluntarily placed to check her movements? t
Another want equally* as obstructive to her ad
vance in this direction ls chat of currency, which I a
is entirely Inadequate to her population and ?

latlon-A Conference upon the Eastern
Defeat of the Army of the Loire.
LONDON. November 30 -Noon.
The following, dated Versailles, early this
?morning:, has been received via Berlin : On Mon
day and Tuesday tue forts around Paris, particu?
larly those toward, the Bonth, maintained a furi?
ous cannonade-to cover a sortie in force. On
Tuesday the French, came out toward L'Hay,
supported by gunboats on the Seine, and attacked
fiercely the position held by. the sixth Prussian
corps. Sorties were made simultaneously In
other directions, probably with a view to prevent |
reinforcements to the sixth corp?. In all cases,
however, the French wer? repulsed and driven
behind their fortifications. The entire loss of th?
Prussians In these actions was seven officers and
a few hundred men, while the French lost sixteen
hundred In prisoners alone.
The French were badly beaten near Amiens.
Their army was totally routed and ned towards
Arras. Four French guns were captured lu this
action. On Monday the main body of the French
attempted-to force a passage to Fontainebleau by
a heavy and general attack. They encountered'!
the 10th Prussian Corps at Beaune, a little village
In the Department of thc Loire, twenty-six miles
norrh of Orleans. The Prussians were quickly re?
inforced with the 5th lnf#iiry and 1st Cavalry
Divisions, and the French onslaught was repulsed
with heavy loss in killed, wounded and prisoners
-especially pr soners. Falling in this attempt
the army or the Loire withdrew.
VERSATLXES, November 30-Noon.
It now appears that the greater part or the
army ot the Loire was engaged against the Pros
si an 10th corps at Beaune, on Monday; The re?

no doubt that the French defeat was complete.
One thousand French were killed and left on the

The Emperor on the Campaign of 1870.
The London Telegraph of November 4th
contains a full translation from proof-sheets of
the brochure about to appear lu Brussels, under
the title ot "Campagne Oe 1870 : des Cause? gut
ont amen? la Capitulation de sedan. Par un
Officier attach? ? l'Etat Major-G?n?ral." This
statement has, it is said, reen dictated by the Em?
peror during his retirement at wilhelm.' nobe.
It ls too long a document for republication In
these columns. It beglus by averring that "when
ivar was declared, and the Emperor assumed the
:om m a nd in-chief of tue French armies, he fre?
quently gave expression to the thought, reflected
In his Initial proclamation, t*?at the campaign
?bout to open would be surrounded by the great?
est difficulties. In the midst or the satisfaction
occasioned by the enthusiasm which everywhere
rreeted his footsteps, many observed the look or
laduess with which he listened to shouts of 'On
iva rd to Berlin I' uttered by the excited multitude,
is if the enterprise were destined to be merely a
nllttary promenade, and a march forward would
infllce to vanquish the nation of Europe most
hor .ughly exercised in the profession of arms
ind best prepared for war."
Hie ii rs t plan was to separate Prussia from the
South German States, and lt was expected that
Lustrla and Italy would make common cause
vit h France. The Emperor's plan of campaign
vhich he confided at Parls.to Marshals McMahon
ind Leoceuf alone-was to mass one hundred and
Ifty thousand men at Metz, one hundred thouB
tad at Strasbourg, and fifty thousand at the Camp
if Chalons. The writer adds:
As soon os the troops should have been con
lentrated at the points Indicated, lt was the Em
leror's purpose to Immediately unite the two ar
nies of Metz and Strasbourg, and. at the head of
?o.?oo men, to cross the Rhine at Maxau, leaving
it his right the fortress of Raatadt, and at his
eft that of Germersbelm. Reaching the other
ide of the Rhine, he would have forced the St ites
if the south to observe neutrality, and would then
lave hurried on to encounter the Prussians.
Valle this movement was in .course of execution
fie fifty thousand men at Chalons, under the com
uand of Marshal Canrobert, were to proceed to
letz to protect the rear of the army and guard
he northeastern frontier. At the same time our
leet cruising in the Baltic would have held sta
lonarv, in the north or Prussia, a part of the
netty's forces, obliged to defend the coasts
(neatened with invasion.
Tne sole chance of this plan succeeding was to
urpass the enemy in rapidity of movement. To
oeompush this, lt was necessary to muster, In
, very days, at the points decided upon, not only
he number of men required, but also the essen
lal accessories of the projected campaign, such
& w<igon equipages, artillery parks, pontoon
rains, gunboats to cover the passage or the
thine, and, finally, the commissariat necessary
0 supply a large army on the march.
The Emperor flattered himself with the hope of
.naming the e results, and In this he was
leceived; as, in fact, everybody was led astray by
lie supposition that, by means of the railways,
nen could be concentrated, and horses and mo
end brought forward, witu the order and pre?
isten Indispensable to success, where prepara
lons had not been made long In advance, by a
The delays incurred arose, in a great measure,
rom the detects nf onr military organization, as
1 has existed for the last arty years, and which
evealed themselves from the very beginning.
After detailing a variety of military movements,'
he writer adds:
After the battle of Gravetotte the unlnter
upted succession of disasters had produced In
'arts a strong impression, and the ministers, un
asy at this state of affairs, had thought that np
o a certain point they could free themselves
rom the constitutional authority belonging to
he Emperor only, since he bad simply given to
be Empress Regent restricted powers. They
hereforeconvoked the Chambers, without even a
eference to the Emperor, and from the tune or
heir assembly lt was, as lt always is m public
laiamlties, the Opposition which saw its influence
ncroase, and which paralyzed the patriotism of
he majority and the progress or the government
From this period ministers appeared arraid to
ironounce the name of the Emperor; and he, who
had quitted the army, and had only relinquished
the command lu order to resume the rems of
government, aoon discovered that lt would be Im?
possible for him to play out the part which belong?
ed to him. ~
We find further on a graceful blt of "mutual ad?
Marshal McMahon, a man, above all things, of
duty, obeyd, and resolved to run the chance
which was placed before him. Anything which
resembled a sacrifice for the public good recom?
mended Itself to his noble soul, and he was flat?
tered by the Idea that by attracting towards him?
self ail the forces of the enemy, he was for the
moment delivering the capital, and giving lt tune
to finish its mes ns of defence. As to the Empe?
ror, he made no opposition. It could not enter
into bis views to oppose tue advice of the govern .
ment and of the Empress Regent, who had shown
so much intelligence and energy"in the midst of
the greatest difficulties; although be perceived
that his own Influence was being completely nul?
lified, since he was acting neither as head of the
government nor as head ofthe army. He decided
to follow, In person, the movements of the army,
fully sensible, however, that if he met with suc?
cess all the merit would tn Justice be ascribed to
the commander-in-chief; and that, In case of a re?
verse, Its responsibility would fail upon the bead
of the State.
' After describing the battle of Sedan and assert?
ing that the capitulation was made* by orders of
the Emperor tc ?ave the shedding of blood, this
curious document concludes as follows:
Thc Emperor, convinced, according to the as?
sertions or the press, that the King had declared
that he made war not against France, but against,
her sovereign, did not hesitate to constitute him?
self a prisoner; hoping that the object or the war
being attained by the sacrifice of his liberty, the
conqueror would beness exacting towards France
and the army. He addressed to the King, by one
of his officers, the following letter:
"Sire (My brother, Monsieur, mon frere)-Not
having been able to die in the midst of my troops,
lt only remains for me to place my sword hi the
hands of your Malesty. I am of your Majesty the
good brother (bon frere,) Na POLEON." .
The King replied as follows:
"Sire (My brother. Monsieur, mon frere)-Re-"
gritting the circumstances under which we meet;
I accept -the sword of your Majesty, and I pray
you to name one of your officers provided wltn
full po weirs to treat for the capitulation of the
army which bas BO bravely fought under your
command. On my side I have named General
Mol t We for this purpose. I am of y our Majesty
the good brother, . WILLIAM.
"Before Sedan,- September l,18fo."
. General Wlmpffen betook himself to the Proa
slan headquarters, In order there to dlscass the.
terms of surrender. During the interview the
French General tried, in vain to obtain more favor?
able terms. On his return tb Sedan, General
wi mr. tren assembled a council of war, composed
of about thirty-two general officers, and, with but
two dissentient voices, lt was decided that "any
fresh struggle wonld but entail the useless loss of
thousands of men; and the capitulation was
The 3d of September was a day the evll-'omened
memories of which will never be effaced from our
M. de Bismarck had sent word to the Empe?
ror, the previous evening, that the King of Prus?
sia offered him an interview on the morrow. Con?
sequently, the Emperor left Sedan on the morn?
ing or the 2d, and sent to inform Oopnt Bismarck
of hli arrival, asking him where was the place,
fixed upon fdr the Interview. He waited for the
Chancellor of the North German Confederation m
a small house upon the road to Donchery. Bis?
marck did not long delay m meeting him. In the
conversation that ensued, the Emperor hastened
to declare that, as he bad given full powers to the
Regency, with lt alone could negotiations for
peace be c nducted; that he merely delivered his
own person Into the hands of the King, claim?
ing nothing for himself, but appealing to hts
generosity for the army and for France. He
added that, the war having been unfortunate,
he wonld not altogether throw off the responsi?
bility which lay upon him, bu; that, nevertheless,
he was bound to state that he had only obeyed a
violently excited national feeling. The papers
have made a crime of these words ofthe Emperor.
However, both in his proclamation to tho anny
on the eve of his departure from Paris, and in bis
answer to the President of the Corps L?gislatif,
he had expressed the same thonght when he paid,
"We have done all in our power to avoid war, aud
I can say that lt ls the entire nation which
has, in its Irresistible etan, promoted our
resolution." This statement was indispensa?
ble, since every day the Emperor ls still accused
of having drawn the sword in a dynastic Interest.
The two sovereigns met in the Chateau of Belle
Vue, In the outskirts or Sedan, At this confer?
ence the King snowed the lofty feelings which an?
imated bini by exhlbTng to -the Emperor au the
consideration which bis misfortunes demanded,
and the Emperor preserved an attitude of the ut?
most dignity. General Wlmpffen, who had told
the Emperor that the army counted upon bia In?
tervention with the King or Prussia for better
conditions, was informed of the fruitlessness of
Such la the recital of the military operations
which terminated so unhappily in the surrender
of the array at Sedan. So tremendous a disaster
should not only wring from us our tears, it should
also be pregnant with instruction, and should fur
n sh lessons never to be forgotten.
The successes of Prussia are due to the supe?
riority of numbers; to-the rigorous discipline or
her army, and to the empire exercised through?
out Germany by the principle of authority. May
our unhappy fellow-countrymen who are prison?
ers at least profit, during their sojourn In Prussia,
by appreciating that which gives strength to a
country-the powers that be respected, the law
obeyed, the military and patriotic spirit domi?
nating all interests and all opinions ! Certainly
the struggle was disproportionate, but lt would
have been longer sustained and less disastrous
for our arma, If military operations had not been
unceasingly subordinated to political considera?
tions. We should also have been better prepared
lr the Chambers bad not Incessantly been desir?
ous of reducing the war budget, and had they not
always opposed any measure to Increase the
national forces. Fifteen days before the declara?
tion or war. the committee on the budget, in the
Corps L?gislatif, expressed an intention to sup.
press the Imperial Guard and to reduce the effec?
tive strength of the army.
To these principar cannes of our reverses we
must add the lamentable habits Introduced Into
the army by the wars In Africa. Want of disci?
pline, want of cohesion, absence of order, exag?
geration of the weight carried by the soldier, and
or the quantity of baggage cf the officers-these
are the abuses which have been Introduced into
To sum*up, the army always reflects the state of
society In which it has been formed. So long as
authority in France was strong and respected,
the constitution of the army presented a remark?
able solidity; but when t\e excesses of the Tri?
bune and of the press w?re permitted to enfeeble
authority, and to Introduce every where a spirit of
criticism and insubordination, the army reit the
affects or it.
God grant that the terrible drama which ts now
seing enacted may serve as alesson lor the fu?
ture, and that our country may rise again from
the catastrophe which now overwhelms her ! .
