Saturday Morning, August 4, 1886.
Europe vs. America.
The language of bravado nsed with
reference to nations is at ali times, we
think, unbecoming and undignified.
In Mr. Banks' report on the neutral?
ity laws, there was something of this
kind towards Great Britain, which we
uoticed the other day; and in many
other State papers, within our recol?
lection, in the declamations of Con?
gressional debates and in the columns
of sensational journals of New York,
we have observed such boastful, and,
as we have often thought, useless ebul?
litions of national pride. Tho great?
ness of a nation is not accelerated by
bullying language, but by the practi?
cal energy of its citizens, in develop?
ing its resources to ^heir utmost ex?
tent, by abstaining-from impertinent
interference with the uffairs of other
States and powers, and by concen?
trating, in working unity and harmo?
ny, all the powers, resources and
energies of its citizens, for tho pur?
pose of advancing the weal of the
people, and the greatness of the Com?
Our owu internal dissensions for
some years past, and latterly the un?
righteous and outrageous legislation
of a faction which has temporary
control of the legislative department
of the Government of the United
States, have claimed all the attention
to political matters her people had
to spare. Now that a temporary lull
in these exciting topics has occurred,
an opportunity is presented to take a
glance at what other nations are
about. We avail ourselves of this
opportunity, aud take occasion to
bring to the notice of our readers
some of the effects which our gigantic
resources, as developed by the late
war, have had on the public mind in
Europe, and tho impression created
there by the physical strength of the
country, when a necessity for war is
forced upon the people of America.
Thus, layiug aside, this morning,
thc discussion of home politics, we
invite the attention of our readers to
au extract -which we publish below.
It is from the peu of one of the ablest
publicists and political economists in
France, a well known writer on public
topics, M. Michel Clrevalier, who has
been recently writing a series of arti?
cles on th<> subject for ono of the
most prominent journals in his coun?
try, the Revue (les deux Mondes. The
extract we append has boen trans?
lated by the New York Mercantile
Journal, of last week, and will be
read with interest, as coming from
such a distinguished writer, and so
much prominence having been given
to its publication. It is the conclu?
sion of his writing on the subject,
and contains the important proposi?
tion which most affects this country.
Ho saj's :
"One great reason in favor of a
European Union is deduced from the
appearance of the political Colossus
that has arisen on the other ride of
the Atlantic. The United States
olier to our gaze a remarkably con?
nected group of separate sovereign?
ties, whose external power is already
formidable, and whose rapid growth
is sufficient to set statesmen to think?
ing. Very plausible calculations,
which everybody must have read or
cast up for themselves, show that be?
fore thc end of tho century-a long
time in the lifo of an individual, but
a brief oue in the existence of nations
-that Union will bo an agglommera
tion of 100,000,000 men. In the
formation of wealth, in activity and
initiative of every kind, the Ameri?
can mean ratio is at least equal to tho
European. For these various rea?
sons, the 100,000,000 of Americans
would represent a still larger number
of Europeans. Tho United States
have been fashioned by a civil war of
four years' duration to the pursuit of
arms, aud have given proof of mili?
tary qualities. Tho citizens of- the
Union know how to brave death as
well as how to inflict it. They also
know how to mako for their country,
its honor, its greatness, tho loftiest
sacrifices. lu thirty years from this
time, North America will be for Eu?
rope a competitor able to rival lier in
all things. It is uot here intended lo
intimate that sho must systematically
become the enemy of Europe. Wo
must take it for granted that between
tho new world and tho old, there will
often bo the most amicable relations;
but tho national pride is great on both
sides, and among the virtues of tho
American Republic, reserve and mo?
desty aro but little remarked. She is
accustomed to affect toward Europe
the attitudo of provocation and dis?
dain. What affronts did she not put
upon England in the time of Jackson
and Iiis immediate successors? And
ut this moment her couduct towards
Austria, on tho subject of sending
volunteers to Mexico, is not stamped
with the mark of moderation. We
may, thc::, naturally apprehend that,
at a future period, not remote, in
comparison with the life-time of a
nation, armed conflicts will spring up
between North America and Europe.
During these wars, as may readily be
foreseen, Europe, if divided and in?
harmonious, would bo weak and ex?
posed to disastrous checks. Such
contingencies might bc warded off
before-hand, by concert of action be?
tween the European powers. Such a
course would be the means to securo
an equilibrium of forces between tho
new world and the old, and also the
means even of diminishing the num?
ber of possible conflicts. In ono
word, when the new conferonce of
Paris shall have drawn to a close its
work of arrangement and pacifica?
tion, should it so far succeed, it should
still remember that all would not
then bo concluded. There would still
remain the uecessities of thc future
to be provided for-pressing necessi?
ties, which cannot be neglected with?
out leaving the door open to grave
complications and great perils. lu
the old international policy, thero is
no longer any security, and the futuro
is gloomy for all Europe without ex?
ception. Is thero, thon, no means of
preventing tho storms and dangers
which there is reason to foresee?" It
is to this point that I have endeavor?
ed to call attention. Let tho arbiters
of the destinies of States hike coun?
cil and prepare in time; Caveani C?n?
sules! It is their futuro that is at
Such is tho proposition of this emi?
nent writer, and it has, we are told,
received a large share of attention
abroad, and some of the journals rep?
resenting foreign interests, published
in this country, have taken it up and
commented on it with favor. One of
thc oldest and most prominent of this
class of journals is the New York
Courier des Etals Unis, which, speak?
ing of the proposed European coali?
tion, says that it is "the more desira?
ble, that the circle of interests is
enlarging every day," that "the uni?
versal balance will soon become the
supreme law, and that an inter-con?
tinental policy is constantly tending
to replace the old policy confined
within the narrow limits of Europe."
This "balance of power" idea is
the chief hobby among the many
European fantasies indulged in by
their political writers, and is adopted
by the "great powers" themselves, as
the unerring State regulator, tho sove?
reign panacea for keeping the interna?
tional system in a healthy condition,
and tho great break-water against tin
encroachments of grasping ambition.
It is resorted to on all occasions, and
may be advantageous amoug the
powers themselves, and even now, ii:
the present difficulties in Europe, as
a brief paragraph in yesterday's pa
per informed us, the great empire ol
Russia itself, apprehensive of tin
growing power and strength of Pms
sia, as manifested in her recent vic
tories over Austria, is about to invok<
from some of tho powers, neutral ii
the present contest, the int?rpositioi
of this doctrine to keep Prussia witlur
proper metes and bounds.
But when these powers, or theil
most experienced philosophers ?un
political economists, nurse the ide:
that this mighty regulator of theil
own affairs of State can bo appliei
to this country, they indulge in t
dream of vanity, which would Kool
bo dissipated by the broad day-ligh
realities of Hie position they wotih
find themselves in. Their scheme
of an empire South, and a consol?
dated federation North of us, havi
no more effect upon the nationa
affairs of this republic than would ai
attempted invasion of 500,000 Chi
numen, armed with gongs, trumpet
and "Chinese thunder." The oui
effect they have, and properly ought ti
have, is to make our ( Government mor
vigilant, so that it may be prepaid
for any meditated coup d'etat, dc
signed not only to put a limit to om
growiug national greatness, but t<
over-turn our system of government
and thus prove to the world that ile
publicanism lias within itself the rot
toning seeds of decay and dissolution
But their schemes, in our neighbpi
hood, will fail. Mr. Seward says thal
in ninety days, he will set affairsrigh
in Mexico; and, give the Fenian hos!
half a chance, they will take care o
her Majesty's dominions in Canad:
But the great lesson which all tues
movements and writings should teac
tho American people, is that of th
necessity of perfect unity among then
selves. When this is acoomplishct
and the whole people of Americ
realize their grand destiny, they nee
have no fear of any European coalitio
to keep them down, and the fut tu
nation of M. Chevalier's 100,000,0C
men may, in tho end, dictate to til
so-called "groat powers," if itshoul
ever be its interest or policy to dos<

A Knoxvillo correspondent of the
Petersburg index says:
"Do you pay any attention to Ten?
nessee politics? Wo are on the very
eve of another revolution. The State
is in convulsions and trying to spew
ont its gubernatorial incumbent. Our
city has boen quiet until to-day."
"The Nashville Banner, of the22d,
says all doubts as to Speaker Heis
Icell's course in regard to this matter
may now be dismissed. He has posi?
tively refused to sign the joint reso?
lution for its ratification, on tho
ground that it was pushed through
the House iu thc absence of a quo?
lu consequence of this decision, wo
suppose, it is stated that the radical
authorities of Tennessee have aban?
doned, for tho present, tho claim tliat
the constitutional amendment had
been ratified by the Legislature. No
certified copy has reach od the Stute
Department, and probably never will,
so that even the radicals themselves
have been out-witted by Brownlow,
and Tennessee has been admitted
without Stevens' condition precedent.
Glad of it.

The following special drtMpatch to
the New York Times give? us a sketch
of the radical convention in New Or?
leans, the assembling of which, and
tho insurrectionary harangues deli?
vered by its members, caused tho riot
in that city:
Nxw ORLKAKT,, Monday, July 30.
Since the days of Know-Nothingism,
or the close of tho war, New Orleans
lias never labored under snch intense
excitement as during the week just
passed. As a party, the Know-No?
things were better organized hero than
in any section of the country, and I
have reason to believe that their or?
ganization ?R still kept up. Tliey at
one time ruled tho city with violence,
and these rioters disturbed every
public assembly convened for politi?
cal purposes. Notwithstanding, the
evidence, to-day, wjJJ take rank side
by sido with thoso by-gono times in
tho history. First, carno the Andy
Johnson ratification meeting, or more
properly speaking, the meeting rati?
fying Democratic nomination dele?
gates to tho Philadelphia Convention,
lt was convened in Lafayette Square,
wilpee a platform, overhung with na?
tional flags and patriotic transparen?
cies, had been erected.
Tho telegraph has ilrcady given
full particulars of this gathering, ami
it only remains for me to add, that,
although speakers were one and al
loud and earnest in their denuncia
tion of the radicals and tho course o!
Congress, they were otherwise mode
rate und conciliatory. Resolution!
adopted were of tho same ualurc, ant
several of tho speakers plainly tole
tho secessionists, if any there wer<
present who still clung to their groa
heresy, that they were not wanted
The proceedings were conducted in ?
quiet and orderl mauner, and al
though the number present was no
as large as it would have been, tin
meeting was a success. After titi:
nu t ting, Governor Welles' proclama
tion, ordering the election of dele
gates from unrepresented parishes ti
tho constitutional Oonveution, wa
issued. The Governor mailed th
proclamation to his private secretar
from his plantation on Red River
and the Secretary of State refused t<
sign it and allix the official seal of th
State. This refusal resulted in
hubbub in tho court of thc conver
tioneers, but they soon discovered
convenient decision of the Supreru
Court to the effect that tho signatnr
was not necessary, and P. Kin
Butler, the great king bee ?f Louis
ana radicalism, prevailed on the pr
vate secretary aforesaid to semi th
proclamation to the press.
As I informed you hist week*, th
Governor had boen on the fence ft

issue of the long-looked for documei
surprised many who were confident i
