The Prospects of Peace.
'stance so heroic in its fortitude
the admiration of friend and
, Pni- ._. surrendered to the victorious
. ?ions ?of Germany. The regular troops
..ad the Moblots are disarmed; Valerien and
the grim sisters who girdle round the gav
city are occupied by Saxon or Prussian, by
Bavarian or Badener. A quarter of a mil?
lion of Frenchmen are added to the huge
roll of prisoners of war. To the armies of
United Germany, poor France has nothing
more^to oppose save the bodies of dispirited ,
and poorly organized men whom Faidherbe, ,
Chanzey and the successor of Bourbaki still <
bold together. The military situation gives
the French no room for hope, nod yet there
is reason to fear that ?the capitulation of
Paris, the crowning triumph for the German
arms, does not end the war.
. During the armistice which has been '
agreed upon, the French will have an oppor?
tunity of counting ap the fearful losses of (
. the campaign, but against this must be set (
the probability that their power of sending j
- more men to the slaughter may tempt the j
government to continue the desperate slrug- t
gie. France can put a million men iu the ?
-field, and her'leaders are not likely to re- '
fleet that mere numbers are of little avail
when opposed to veterau troops flushed with
success, and manoeuvred with consummate ,
skilL The. French, so fur, have shown an t
Invincible repugnauce to any loss ot, terri' k
tory.* There is little of bravado in their .
declaration that they will never consent to *
the cession of one inch of French soil. On '
the other .hand, it seems certain that the '
.Germans will insist upon annexing the old '
German Provinces of Alsace and Lorraine. !
IL the present, temper of France, no govern?
ment can stand which gives its consent to
the surrender of these provinces, and, if we .
?are correctly Lu formed, Germany will accept' ?
nothing less than this as an essentialcondi- .
-tion of peace. This has led thoughtful 1
critics to the conclusion that the Germans 1
have no choice but to continue the lighting, 1
in the north, south, east and west, lill the
whole military organization of France is
destroyed. Unless peace eau be concluded, ?
Germany mu?t either crush out the remain- ,
ing armies and hold France as conquered i
territory, or must conteDt herself with oc?
cupying the forts around Paris, and the line
of the Moselle. Ia the latter case, France
would certainly hammer away at the Ger-t
man positions as long as she could coax or
drive a r?giment into service. Germany,
moreover, is anxious for peace, and is loath
to adopt any policy which involves the con- ,
tlnnance of thc- war. How, then, can the
wishes of the conqueror and the vanquished
Strangely enough it was suggested by the
London Times, three weeks ago, that if 1
peace was to be secured, tho first de- '
partnre from the existing irreconcil?
able' opposition of the combatants 1
must come from .the German side. The 1
Tunes said "as long -.is the apparent stub- 1
"borness of the German attitude remains
"unabated, all France is thrown into tho t
"arms of the government of defence. The j

wrltrn^y^'^'fvW?tt^r1 of course, concede to 11
the Aisatiana and Lorrainers the right of re-,
moving from the ceded territory. Who,
however, can cede Alsace and Lorraine to
Germany ? kThis is the root of the difficulty.
France has no government with which,
Bismarck can safely treat. The Republic is
a thing of shreds ^and patches. It Ts neces?
sary to erect a government, or allow a gov?
ernment to be erected, before terms of peace
can be agreed upon. The National Assem?
bly will endeavor to form a government, but;
meeting at Bordeaux, far from the seat of
war, it i3 more likely to decree war to the
bitter end than to demand a permanent
peace. It is, indeed, only too evident that
however peace may come, France will only
remain quiet until she is strong enough to
try ouce more the fortunes of war. This. |
makes the Germans inflexible in their deter?
mination to interpose the provinces of Al?
sace and Lorraine, the fortresses of Metz
and Strasbourg, between France and old
Germany. It is doubtless the knowledge of
the necessity of setting. up some form of
government bef?te peace can be had, which
causes it to be so generally reported that the
Emperor William is ready to restore the
French Empire. ?Che return of the Empress
Regent to Paris would give Bismarck a rec?
ognized head with -whom to treat. But
when all was settled and the German forces
had withdrawn, a revolution would most
likely sweep the Napoleons back into exile,
and give France another government pledg
to wipe out the stain upon the national
Whichever way we look there is nothing
but doubt and uncertainty. There may be
a cessation of hostilities. A nominal peace
may be had. But for France herself there is
li'tie prospect of quiet and content. Wo
fear that the horrors of a foreign war will be
followed by a bloody carnival or riot and
Thc F ii li of Parts-Opinions of thc
Tiie New York Sun says: "With any other
.'race than the French, it would be safe to say
"that the war is now virtually over; and that
"peace will bc accepted with all the humilia?
tions it acknowledges and confirms. But
"there is a wonderful vitality in that people,
"and it may even yet break forth in some un
"expected way to astonish and confound the
"world. It is possible that the war may still
'?be continued by the mass ol the French with
'.the same tenacity and bitterness as the Ven
"deans displayed In-fighting against the Con?
tention eighty years ago. But this is not to
"be counted on with any great confidence.
"It is rather more probable that the whole
"jiatlon wjll imitate the example of Parts, and
"make peace on such terms as the conquerors
"may exact. But ii France now succumbs
"altogether, and settles down Submissively
"into her present place as a broken power, it
"will be only another proof o? the utter ex?
haustion and debility into which she has
"been sunk by the rule of the bastard adven?
turer who governed lier from the beginning
"of 181!) until the surrender of Sedan."
The New York Journal of Commerce thinks
that "a three weeks' taste of peace will beget
"an appetite for more, which will go far to
"overmaster the remains of French pride. It
"seems impossible for the French ibices to
"gelinto a position at all favorable for resit ui
"inghoslilltles. But what events the proud
"spirit of Gambetta and the furious conten?
tions which we may expect to'see In the Na?
tional Assembly will bring forth, lt is Impos?
sible to say."
The Philadelphia Ledger considers the ar?
mistice the end of the war, and trusts con?
querors will be magnanimous in dealing with
i gallant but unfortunate foe.
The New York Tunes thinks that an annis
ice of three weeks, by land and sea, practi?
cally means the re-establishment of peace
br the present-and lt is of no use for the
Trench to persuade themselves that with all
heir best soldiers prisoners of war, they can
jo on fighting against the German hosts.
'The sootier they surrender everything, the
'smaller will be their loss, and the sooner will
'they be enabled io prepare for another trial
'of strength. At least three hundred and fifty
'thousand troops will come back to France ou
'the declaration of ?.eace.^ What will be their
'sentiments toward Germany ? What sort ol'
'rule will they be disposed to ask for-a gov
'erninent which declares that 'peace' is its
.policy, or one which quietly, but intlefaliga
'bly, prepares for war ? As tor the Republic,
'what has it done for France ? Where are all
'the fiery spirits of the 'Irreconcilables,' aud
'what have they accomplished ? Rochefort,
'and all the rest ol' them, have utterly fulled.
'The Emperor himself ls not more discredited
.by the evetts ol the war than the 'Reds.' It I
'ls but too probable' that a long period of |
'anarchy is before France, and a-contlnnance
.of that sys'em of unstable governments
'which lias given rUe to so much corruption,
.and helped so materially to bring her pres
'eut calamities upon her."
The New York Tribune has no doubt that
peace will follow the armistice: It says:
.Everything tends to Indicate thal hostilities
.'will not agaiu be resumed. In the Constit
"uent Assembly the members ol the Provi?
sional Government, who have followed the
-'Emperor in leading France to ruin, because
"they had not the morai strength to negotiate
"a peace, will not, In ail likelihood, wield
"great Influence, and we hope for something
"of wisdom in Its deliberations. That France
"recognizes the hopelessness of her struggle
"is uow apparent, and the Assembly will meet
"fully authorized by public sentiment to con?
clude a peace on any terms which the Ger
"mans will grant. The German Emperor
"prays for peace; the German nation, too, de
Sires lt ardently; and it will be the fault of
"the Assembly if war is not concluded with the
"fall of Paris."
Tho New York World looks forward to the
restoration ot' the Empire, and thinks that an
juderslandiug "to this end exists between Na?
poleon and Bismarck. The Republicans have
10 choice but to continue the war or elect a
roverntnent pledged to dismember the nailoa
11 territory. They will stay sullenly at home,
ind leave to the Imperialists the task of forra
ng a government. "Tile outgiving that young
.Louis is to be put on the throne with Eugenie
'as regent is a dexterous bid for the Catholic
'vote. The Empress is a devoted, steadiast
'Catholic, and a government of which she
'was to be the head, during the minority ot
'the Prince, would secure the warm support
'ot' the rural clergy, the most powerful body
'of electioneering agents in the present con
The New York Herald believes that the
iresent probabilities are In (avor of the recall
)i the Empress and the Prince Imperial from
Sugland, leaving the Emperor at Wilhelms
?ohe for a few months longer-that is, until
:he public mind shall have settled down airain
nto acquiescence In the Empire. In that
?vent, we dare say the Emperor, loo, will re?
turn, willi all followers, just as the old Bour?
bons returned in'1813.

to or?ate a demand for three editions of the

among thinking men, both here and abroad,
about the future of France. It is evident
that of all the possible results of the present
defeat they most fear anarchy. M. Laveleye
looks rather hopefully to the future, f?e

First and only time here of a new and powerful
Dramatic Dramn, by H. Watkins, entitled, '
SET IN GOLD; OB, THfr ONE BRIGHT SPOT.
Biddy Mc Nulty (wi: h Sonus).ROSE WATKINS
From the Piilladelphta.Press : "In his new play
the author, departing from the well-worn path of |
Irish dramatic literature, has sought to depict a
trulv novel and original character, and in doing
so lias achieved an extraordinary success. His
assumption of Fardorougha, a raiser, In whose
heart the struggle of avarice with natural affec?
tion strives for mastery, is a masterpiece of act?
ing, bearing the Impress of genius-it i3rin?eed,
a wonderful performance."
