HRS Napoleon a Winning Card In Re?
serve!-I.cs Idee? Napolconneti.
The suggestion made by some of our
ootemporaries, that Napoleou holds tho
winning card of republicanism in his
hands to play it when necessary, ia ono
that we do not oonoar in, and yet it has
Borne plausibility. Tears aud years ago,
before Napoleon had aohieved reputa?
tion, when he was a resident of New
York and lived at Hobokeu, he is repre?
sented as making with sonic boon com?
panions a remarkable wager, viz: That
he would be, before his death, nt thc
head of the Fro neb nation as the cham?
pion of Democracy, and that he would
give tho right construction in thc inte?
rests of humanity and civilization to his
uncle's prophecy of 1821-"t/i sixty
years, Europe xoill be Republican or Cos?
sack." And he explained that by "tho
right construction," he nioaut "republi?
can." Taking this incident, now, in
connection with tho speculations of tho
present, to say the least, the coincidence
is remarkablo and striking. It is now
suggested in the New York Worlda?d in
other journals, that should the present
Emperor have to deal with a European
ooalition formed against him, or should
he And Prussia moro than a match, he
-might startle Europe with the proclama?
tion of a republic in Franco and iuvoko
ihe power of the pcopie in every Euro?
pean llingdonl. This is the card which
Napoleon is thought to have in his hands.
As for ourselves, wo do not think he
could make anything out of a movo Uko
that. Ho might call the spirits, but will
they come? Wo think not. We agree
with a Gorman sympathizer in the
World, who suggests what wo havo al?
ready thrown out, viz: That Prussia
wants no Republic, but prefers a consti?
tutional Empire. Nor do wo regard this
writer wrong, when he suggests that
France would find enough to do to esta?
blish her own republic first aud consoli?
date it, before she can go, with the chas
sepots in the one baud and a model re?
publican constitution in the other, to
subjugate kingdoms and empires. The
World, however, insists upon it that
there is not much of constitutional free?
dom to be gathered from Bismarck's and
King William's rolo, aud contends that
the condition of tho whole continent of
Europe threatens a terrible popular con?
vulsion. Tho World &o.ys:
"Behind and beneath ull her armies,
behiud and benoath all her throues, be?
hind and beneath all her banks, too, and
her parliaments, surges and mutters tho
mighty seething discontent, the gather?
ing wrath and rage, of the nnder-people
-the highly unconstitutional, and, for
tho most part, unseemly millions vho
are preparing for Europe her third great
revolution. The empire of Napoleon has
stood for now nearly twenty years as the
true break-water of this rising tide. It
may erambie of itself; it maj- be cut
through by tho 'princes' iu whom our
correspondent puts bia child like trust.
In either case, we fancy, the waves, once
let loose, will approve themselves to be
as little respecters of races as of persons."
This may be so, but we do not seo
the matter in this light. If Napoleon
has no better card than "a republic pro?
claimed," to play, he cannot save him?
self-ho must lose the game. Not
revolution must ho invoke, but rather let
him organize his forces, appeal to
Freuch valor aud patriotism, to brilliant
generalship, and ho may emerge into
the sun-light of victo'ry. All ho needs is
success-all ho requires is victory nt the
head of his army-and again will the
word of Ciesar "stand before tho world,"
aud few will there be KO proud na not "to
. do him reverence."
The sudden illness of the Emperor,
the recall of tho Prince Imperial, thc
proclamation of tho French Ministry,
the rapidly changing military Operations,
the excitement in Paris, nil indicate thc
terrible iutensity of thc combat and point
to possibilities which may revolutionize
tho whole political face of Europe. He's
at odds are freely takcu that Napoleon
will not occupy the Tuilleries at the cud
of ninety days; and, leaving the enthu?
siasm of interested .spectators out of thc
account, the most prudent and reflective
observers cannot fail to seo in the vio?
lent action of current events signs the
most alarming for tho Napoleonic dy?
nasty. Tho unity of Germany, the pres?
tige and ambition of Bismarck, ?iud the
equivocal position of two or three of the
lendiug powers, render tho Imperial si?
tuation critical, to say tho least of it.
Our telegraphic columus will bo watched
every morning with nu expectancy hard?
ly surpassed by that which followed thc
course of our own war news. They may
be expected at any moment to convoy
tho most startling .intelligence. Thc
death of tho Emperor, tho capture ol
Puris, a revolution in Franco, anything,
everything may bo looked for in tin
present peculiar situation of affairs. All
the indications point to a grand battle
between thc Prussians aud French al
Motz. It ia stated that Bazaine and
Troober, of the FrenoU army, have been
busily engaged organizing their forces,
and at the last accounts, tho Prussians
were advancing. The Emperor is still
at tho front.
The New York World, says: Tho re?
spectivo commanders will bring into tho
field on each side from two hundred and
fifty to three hundred thousand fighting
men; and if the Prussians will fight reso?
lutely to keep the advantages and the
prestige they havo won, we may bo sure
the French will fight as resolutely to ro
covor their lost ground, and to regild
their eagles tarnished by tho scandalous
surpriso and defeat of Woissenburg, fol?
lowed by the desperate though hopeless
battle of Werth.
Thc New York World says, and we
commend its language to our renders:
"Tho oppresBivo domination under
which the South suffers is a domination
I from without, and there is no reasouablo
hopo of redress except by relief from
external tyranny. If tho South pos?
sessed freedom of internal action, un?
asked advico would indeed bo intrusivo
aud impertinent. But that sectiou can
bo rolieved from the incubus of Federal
domination only by Democratic victo?
ries iu tho North; and this is a valid
apology for tho advico wo presume to
offer. As tho South needs our aid, it
must not spurn our frieudly counsel.
"From 1800 dowu to tho presont timo,
mauy leading minds in thc South have
beeu nillictcd with political blindness.
It was a supremo act of political folly to
split thc Charleston Convention by the
lamentable schism which brought two
Democratic candidates-Donglas and
Breckinridge-into the field against Lin?
coln, and secured his first election. Thc
Northern Democrats who abetted that
schism were sycophants of tho South,
not real friends. Prominent urnoucj
them wero Ben. Butler, who promptly
deserted to tho radicals; Daniel S. Dick?
inson, who took oflico under Mr. Lin?
coln; Caleb dishing, who has been thc
paid counsel of successive radical admi?
nistrations; and John A. Dix, tho sub
missive tool of Lincoln and Seward, ir
shuttiug up tho offices of Democratic
newspapers. These are specimens. Thc
supporters of Mr. Douglas, on the othei
baud, pitched their professions of friend
ship in a lower key, but have maiutainec
them to the preseut hour. If Mr. Don
glas had been elected, wo should have
bad no civil war, aud tho South wouk
have been exempt from its deplorable
train of consequences. Tho wisdom ol
Douglas consistedtin his correct appro
ciatiou of the tone and temper of th)
Northern poople. Ho saw that tin

PBUSSIAN- ASPIRATIONS VB. FBENCH
AIMS.-A correspondent ci the New York
World thus suggests tho ide?os under
lying Prussian and French programmes:
The actual political condition of both
France and Prussia is the partial reali?
zation of schemes that, like the famous
Peter the Qreat policy of Russia, aro
traditional. United Germany has been
tho dream of Gormans since Maria The?
resa and the Groat Frederic fought for
supremacy. The contention was whother
it should be Protestant or Catholic. Tho
Prussia of to-day has swept away for?
ever thc tradition of the Holy Roman
Empire. And it was reserved* for Bis?
marck to dem?nstrate tho impossibility
of a voluntary federatiou of iudepoudeut
petty sovereigns, and tho practicability
of a welding of these severul minor
powers rouucl the solid coro of one great
State, which should give solidity and
cohesiou to the muss. The political ten?
dency of thc Teutonic mind is to per?
sonal loyalty. Tho feudal sentiment
which by the ferment aud chango of
nearly a century bas beeu obliterated in
the French nation, is still tho prevailing
idea in Gcrmauy. Success always justi?
fies enterprise with tho majority ol' man?
kind; but this common acceptance of the
fail accompli is not tho ouly motivo for
Gorman admiration of Prussia. Sho
has realized iu German fashion the pre?
conception of German grandeur; her ad?
herents and supporters being the great
masses of the Germau-speakiug tribes;
the dissidents hoing thosovcreigu princes
aud powers whoso characters or person?
alities were of no waight with their
countrymen. The French ou their part,
whatever their iuternal convulsions,
havo always retained under every form
of government tho idea of a great empire
with natural bon?daries-the Alps, thc
Pyrenees, tho Ocean, aud thu Rhino.
This, whether in the days of Francis, ?j
Richelieu, Louis XIV, the Republic, ol
the Empire, has been the French idea.
Geographically, it is reasonable; ethni?
cally, the only obstucle is tho Ubeno
German provinces. The first Napoleon
himself even favored the idea of Ger
man unity, ami mediatized a great norn
ber of petty powers which split up G^r
many like tho squares of a chess-board,
without its equality or regularity. Bul

NAPOLEON AND KINO WILLIAM.-Thu
The condition of France os compared
with tho conditiou of Germauy ut the
present time is bad. France trembles.
Germany is full of coufideucc. Tho
morale of thu struggle is all against
France. It was Napoleon who began
the war, aud the pretext fur war, accord?
ing to the common sense of mankind,
was contemptible. Napoleon talked big;
King Willina was calm, dignified aud
willing to abide tho issue. Napoleon
was theatrical and talked of Louis and
bis first baptism of fire. The boy prince,
aller bis baptism, is hurried back to bis
mother. How much grauder the con?
duct of Kiug William! He waits until
ho has a right to speak. Compare the
"baptism of Aro" with the words, "a
great victory has been won by our
Fritz. God be praised for His mercy."
The former is modern charlatanism. The
latter has tho fiue ring of the good old
limes, wbeu men bad faith iu the God
of battles. Napoleon may yet turn the
title of victory, aud ?ave Franco and his
dynasty. But if he does not w iu a groat
battle before Monday first, which is his
/cte day, tho house of Bonaparte is
doomed. According to all appearances,
Napoleon's last blunder has been his

tho young mon of that family havo ever

model members of the first society of
New York, in which they moved. The
statement of Washington Nathan having

to the house.
The family of Mr. Nathan huvo been

without any such false reports in rogart!
to the young men, being circulated,
which aro calculated to blast their future
