[Prom the Indianapolis News. ]
The following is supposed to have been
written in 1892 bj Max Adeler, who was a
witness of the terrible scenes which occurred
at the time of which the storytells. The En?
glish satire, uThe Battle of Dorking," sup?
plied the suggestion for this prophetic tale :
THE CONQUEST OF AMEBIOA.
You ask me to tell you, my children, of the
events which immediately preceded the des?
truction ol the once great American Union,
and the capture of the country by its present
European rulers, and to say something also of
the cause which led to these deplorable re?
sults. I undertake the task with a heavy
heart, for when I revert to that terrible time
fcannoc help contrasting our proud condition
np to that fatal year with the humiliating posi?
tion occupied now by the American i>eople.
The story is a short one. In1 the fall cf 1872
Horace Greeley, the editor of-a newspaper in
.New York, was elected President- of the
United States. The people voted tot him be?
cause they thought he was an honest man.
And so ho was. But he waa also rain and
weak, and he entertained certain fanatical and
preposterous notions-about agricultural mat?
ters, for Instance-which he was def ermined
to force upon the people at all hazards and
despite all opposition. He believed, among
F-other things, that every man ought to go to
the West to earn his bread,-and long before he
was chosen President he used to advise every?
body to move to that region, as a cure for all
the disasters that could befall the human
DBTVIiiO THE SEABOARD POPULATION WEST.
As soon as he reached the Executive Man?
sion, which we used to call the White House,
President Greeley organized an army of two
hundred thousand men, and proceeded to
force the entire population of the seaboard
States westward at the point of the bayonet.
The utmost violence was used. Those who re?
sisted were shot down, and their dead bodies
"were carried off to a national factory, which
the President bad established lor making tome
kind of fantastical fertilizer. All the large
.cities ol the East were depopulated, and the
towns were entirely empty. The army swept
before lt millions of men, women and chil?
dren, until the vast plains west of Kansas were
reached, when the pursuit ceased and the
army was drawn up in a continuous, line,
with orders to shoot any person who attempt?
ed to visit the East. Of course hundreds of
thousands of these poor creatures perished
from starvation. This seemed to frighten
President Greeley, and ha sent a message to
Congress recommending that seven hundred
-?ousand volumes of a book of his, entitled
"What I know about Farming," should be
voted lor the relief of the starving sufferers.
This was .done, and farming implements and
seeds were supplied; and then the millions of
wretched outcasts made an effort to till the j
ground. Of the result of this I will speak
ALL BUBOPE IN ARMS AGAINST AMERICA.
In the meantime the President was doing
infinite harm to tbe country In another way.
His handwriting was so fearlully and wonder?
fully bad tb At no living man could read it. And
so when he sent his first annual message to*
Congress-i-the document was, devoted wnolly
to the tariff and agriculture-a sentence ap"
Seared which subsequently was ascertained tb
e, "Large cultivation of rutabagas and beans
ls the only hope of the American nation, I am
sure." The printers, not being able to inter
ftret this, put lt lu the ioUowlngJorm. in which
t went to the-world: "The Czar .ot Busala I
couldn't keep clean If he washed himself with
the whole Atlantic ocean once a day 1" This
perversion of the message was immediately
telegraphed to Russia by the Russian minister,
and the Czar was so indignant that he immedi?
ately declared war.
Just at this time President Greeley under?
took to write some letters to Prince Bismarck
upon tb?; subject of potato rot, and, after giv?
ing h!s singular views at great length, he con?
eluded with the statement that If the Emperor.
William - said that subsoil ploughing was
not good in light soils, or that guano was j
better than bone .dust, he. was a "liar,, a
villain, and a slave !" Of course.the Emperor
also Immediately declared war, and became an
ally of Russia and of England, against which
latter country Mr. Greeley bad actually begun
.hostilities already, becacse the Queen, inner
speech from the throne, had declared the Tri?
bune's advocacy of a tariff on tilg iron Incen?
diary, and calculated to disturb' the peace of
^Gnbappllv this was not thu full measure of
our disasters. The President had sent to the
Emperor of Austria a copy of his book "What
I know," Ac, with his autograph upon a fly?
leaf. The Emperor mistook the signature for
a caricature of the Austrian eagle, and he
readily joined In the war against the United
States: while France was provoked to ' the
same act by the fact that when the French
minister came to call upon Mr. Greeley to
" his credentials, the President, who
ting an editorial at the time? not com?
bing tbe French .language, mistook the
?ador for a beggar, aqd without looking
, (led him a quarter and an order fora
shirt, and said to him, "Go West, young
SIDENT GREELEY AND CABINET HANGED.
So all these nations joined in making war
upon the United States. They swooped down
. upon our coasts and landed without opposi?
tion, for those exposed portions of our unhap
fy country N were absolutely deserted. The
resident was afraid to call away . the army
from Kansas at first, for fear the outraged peo?
ple upon the plains would come East in spite
ct bim. But at last he did summon the army
to his aid, and it moved to meet the enemy.
It was too late. Before the troops reached
Cincinnati the foreigners had seized Washing?
ton and all the country east of the Ohio, and
had bung the President, the Cabinet, and every
-, member of Congress. .The army disbanded in
W Naiarm, and the invaders moved to the far West,
where they found the population dying of star?
vation because they had followed the advice ot
Greeley's book to "Try. for your first crop, to I
raise limes; and don't plant.more than a bushel
of quicklime in- a hill !" Of course these
wretched people were at the mercy of the
enemy, who-to his credit, be it said-treated
them kindly, fed them, and brought them
back to their old homes. ?
* UTTER RUIN OF THE REPUBLIC.
You know what followed-how Prince Fred?
erick William, of Prussia, ascended the Amer?
ican throne, and the other humiliations that
ensued. It was a fearful blow to Republican?
ism-a blow from which it will never recover.
It made IIB, who were free men, a nation of

ECHOES OE OUIt VICTOBT.
What oar Exchanges say-of the Result.
[Fr.m the New Orleans Times.]
The recent triumph achieved by the citizens
of Charleston, Is a fair evidence of what can
be done in our own city with a proper and
effective organization.. All respectable men,
white and-black, are by this time heartily tired
of the yoke placed upon their necks by carpet?
bag adventurers, who, without any real inte?
rest in our welfare, merely use official position
as foraging fields. Happily, the game is too
much like that between the boys and the frogs
to last long;, t oe latter ase getting tired and
desire to be let alone.
[From the New York ExpresB.]
Bememberiog what we saw, heart Ad read
of government in the City of Charleston, a
few months since, we cannot but congratulate
citizens there upon the defeat of Pillsbury for
Mayor, and tbe choice of a city government
which will respect law and order and decent
government The election was held in Au?
gust in order that lt might be carried by the
negroes, many white people being necessarily
absent in summer; but all who could remained
at home, and hence, in part, the change for
the better. ? .
[From the New York Sun.]
The municipal election which took place In
Charleston on Wednesday was most Impor?
tant ip. its results, and may be a forerunner of
event? to come In South Carolina. For the
first time in several years the carpet-bag par?
ty In that city has been badly defeated, and
the respectable citizens have succeeded in
placing their'own men in power. The entire
Conservative ticket was elected. Upon it
were five colored men as candidates tor alder?
men, whom the whites all voted for, and who
were supported by the local Democratic news?
papers. This looks very much as it, the South
Carolina Democrats had accepted the new de?
parture in good faith.
[From the Columbia Union.]
The Charleston municipal election is ended,
and has resulted In a deleat of the Republican
candidates. Looking at the result, the eourse
pursued during and before the election, we
cannot but be convinced that the defeat ls
principally due to the spirit manifested by
some ot tie local leaders of the party in that
city, which was all along regretted and con?
demned; a spirit which, when developed as
fully as lt was in this instance, has always
brought defeat There has been a lesson given
to these discordante. To those in the distance,
undisturbed by the petty .spites and fae-'
tiona, this result does not come unex?
pectedly. They expected It, and on more
than one occasion have so Intimated,, per?
haps to be laughed at for temerity on the
part ot over-sanguine, ot over-ambitious, or
over-estimated men, who felt like boys, that,'
with the knowledge of a few short years, they
could control events and manage affairs.
'.Old men for counsel, young men "for war."
This adage was never better illustrated than
during the last contest, and, although defeat
bas come home, it bas brought with it such a
lesson that we may not have all to regret
and nothing to encourage. It Is so plain that
those who run may read, and we hope the Rc
Eublican party In Charleston may make the
est of it, which, at this particular juncture in
that city, means much.
TBE SEC BETS OF SEDAN.
Paul de Cassagnac'j Account of the Ex
The Gaulois publishes along letter from
H. Paul de Cassaguac In defence of the ex
Emperor at Sedan, ol which the tollo wing are
At ll o'clock in the morning the battle was
lost Penned up, and led like so many sheep
in ravines and hollows, without any order,
food, ol* ammunition, without a plan, pounded
Incessantly by 700 guns, which opened on us
from a distance of 4000 and 5000 metres, sur?
rounded by 400,000 men, who kept behind
their guns, protected from our bullets and.
bayous?, we found.o?u?ulveB fOt*?d hack into
the town, rnad the grief of witnessing the
preliminaries and the conclusion of the capi?
tulation. Philippe de Massa, Lauriston and I
were sobbing in front of the room where our
dishonor was signed. Well, what was the
Emperor's conduct ' before, during and after
the battle ? Before the capitulation he was
not in command, and' did not give a single
order. "? Marshal McMahon is too honest
not to admit that Accepting to the bitter
end the melancholy part of a parliamentary
sovereign ( ! !) the Emperor was present, but
took no directing' part Since the 19th of
January he was like a bullock stunned by the
butcher's poleax; he tottered on until he fell
at Sedan. No longer having the right of in?
terfering In anything, he went about the bat?
tle-field, escorted by a few friends, displaying
admirable but barren courage.
After the battle be remained unchanged, re?
taining bis neutral attitude - that position
wblch ls called parliamentary,'but which means
nothing but impotence and abdication. Then
the Emperor committed the blunder-the enor?
mous blunder-of meddling with a capitula?
tion which concerned others than himself
those who had so madly led us to the shambles.
Seized with deep commiseration for this army,
prostrate while yet alive In this huge grave?
yard, he did what-no matter who was about
to be compelled to do-he gave orders to holst
the white flag. For ignorant and impassioned
people that was quite sufficient. Everything
was thrown on his shoulders, and he became
the scapegoat laden with the want ot skill of
McMahon, the insane rashness of Wlmpffeu,
the want of foresight of the commissariat, all
the iniquities of the cowards, the incapables,
and the traitors-he was driven from Sedan to
Cassel, from Cassel to Chlselburst. Had he
stuck to his part, and not meddled with any?
thing; if he had allowed an additional 40,000
men to perish beneath the crumbling walls of
Sedan, he would not now bear the'burden ot a
capitulation for which he may be responsible,
but which cannot in any way be Imputed to
him'as a crime.
WALES AND LORNE.
The Whole Truth About the Royal
[World London Dispatch.]
LONDON, July 29.
There is a story running about like wildfire
in the upper circles here, which would seem
to indicate a little "difficulty" In our royal
family, arising out of the --unequal match"
lately contracted In lc. As I happen to know
the truth of the matter, I will give you tbe
rumor first, and then the real version. Rumor
asserts that on the late opening ot St. Thomas'
Hospital by the'Queen, the Marquis of Lorne,
accompanied, his wife, the Princess Louise,
to the waiting-room prepared for the
royal family previous to ? the cere?
mony. According to the story, the Prince
of Wales, seeing him there, desired one of the
lords in walting to Inform him that his pres?
ence was contrary to etiquette. That function?
ary, however, replied that he could only con?
vey such ai intimation on the express com?
mand of the Queen. Upon this tbe Prince ap?
proached Lord Lorne, and himself made tbe
communication, and, in consequence, the lat?
ter left the apartment and remained outside
in the corridor, not entering the room set
apart for the "suite.'' So much for report.
Now what happened was this: On ap
Eroaching the waiting-room, Lord Lorne
imself dropped his wife's arm and stop?
ped, saying to the Prince of Wales, who
was standing at the entrance, "I suppose
I don't go In here ?" To this the Prince
replied, "Did not the Queen tell you to
come in?" On which the other answered,'
"No, and therefore I shall remain outside;"
which be did, the Prince standing there also
and conversing with him, as if purposely to
support bim. You would be amused to learn
what an amount ot comment and discussion
this miserable story has raised here, and how
angrily the expediency or otherwise of the
union which has given rise to lt, is fought out
over again. In a common-sense point ol view,
there seems something both absurd as well as
little that Lord Lorne, who has been allowed
to marry Into the roval family, should not ba
nilly admitted a member of it. The public
would not In the least object, and one would
suppose that the royal family would, out of re?
spect for their own selection, be the first lo
especially desire it.
