Thur oday Morning, September 8,1870.
Tho Pedi or Napoleon XII?
This great event, startling and unex?
pected, of course, provokes much com?
ment. As usual, the misfortunes of the
man bring out in bold relief whatever of
weakness bis character presents, and
throw in the shade whatever of greatness
he has illustrated. We cannot concur in
the disparaging criticisms that are in?
dulged in by some of our ootemporaries.
Whatever nationality or passion or pre?
judice may now suggest, it will bo im?
possible for impartial HISTORY to treat
with scorn or levity tho name and tho
services of the late ruler of Franco-of
?10,000,001) of a bravo aud intelligent and
liberty-loving race. That Louis Napo?
leon had weaknesses and committed
errors, no ono will deny. But whut ruler
has not shown himself moro or less lia?
ble to the same critioism? The question
is, how, in the main, has he borne him?
self and in what proportion stand his
successes to his errors? Ono of our co
temporaries rom arks that "tho uephew
of his unolo is disgraced, dishonored, and
Dethroned he oertaiuly is, but not,
do we see, does it follow that ho is "dis?
graced and dl'ahonored." Jjet us review
his career-briefly and partly though it
be. In 1850, he was elected President
of the Republic of Franco by a largo
majority. 3?his was a popular endorse?
ment. It is .true, that rfyo eau not ap?
prove tho arbitrary method by whioh he
made tho Republic give way to the Em?
pire. But it is also true, that after tho
Empire was proclaimed, the French peo?
ple, with universal suffrage, by a large
majority, sustained a plebiscitum, recog?
nizing the Imperial dynasty. Ho made
mistakes and committed political of?
fences, but these mistakes and theso
offences were not greater than what
other rulers have committed. The New
York World, on this point, says:
"Those mistakes of his reign, which eau
be clearly traced to errors of judgment on
bis own part, may easily be paralleled
alike as to number and as to magnitude in
the career of any ono of the very most
illustrious among the rulers of man?
kind. His greatest political blunders
have not been greater than those of the
first Napoleon; his military misadvent?
ures have been much lesa numerous, aud
it is still pr?mature to pronouuee them
more disastrous to bis people, thau those
of the groat Frederic. The manner of
his advent to power, how?vor bitterly it
may be denounced, was a loss flagrant
outrage upon tho principles of liberty
and sound goyernmunt than the steps by
whioh Oro.mweU'seized the dictatorship
of England, ot Ciesar the helm of the
Roman State. The wars upon which ho
bas entered have been undertaken in no
such .flit' contempt of the recognized
modern .standards of international right,
os the armed adventurers of his now
successful antagonist, Count Bismarck.
Even in that enterprise of his reigu,
which bas most drawn down upon him
the hostility of Americans, it should bo
easy for temperate and considerate men,
viewing him now as a character in his?
tory, not as a power in politics, to admit
that there was an element of Quixotic
interest in a decrepit race and a dying
nationality, not the less creditable to his
generous instincts as a man, that it was
neither judicious nor practical on his
part as a ruler. The liberation and re?
constitution of Italy was his work. To
bis action in tho Crimean war, moro
than to any one other extrinsic cause,
Germany herself is indebted for her
emancipation from that overshadowing
domination of the Russian Czarism
under which the events of 1815 loft her
blighted and powerless, aud which was
made darker and more chilling thau
ever by the failure of her ill-combiued
and ill-considered efforts nt revolution iu
1848. Within the limits of tho French
Empire an enormous development of
material prosperity, in the main judici?
ously fostered and profitably directed,
wfi? be carried by impartial history very
largely to the credit of the imperial in?
telligence which insisted, in thc face of
the traditions and tho prejudices of tho
French people, npon the authority of
great economic laws."
Napoleon the III, in spite of his sud?
den fall, must stand on tho pages of his?
tory as a great mau, and a ruler that had
at heart the interests of his people. For
twenty years, ho gave to Franco a atablo
goverment and the blessings of peace
and internal development. Ho was a
liberal and progressive ruler. Ho im?
pressed himself upon Europa and the
civilized world. Contemptuously styled
aporreen?, and reluctantly recognized bi?
llie crowned heads of Europe, ho com?
pelled a recognition of his sovereign
claims, and in making himself felt and
respected for his abilities and successor,
he caused Franco to take her place as a
first class European powor. And know?
ing the French people as we kuow them,
who will say that ho did not give as much
liberty as was consistent with law and
ordorf His Democracy, it is true, was
an Imperial Democracy, but no ruler in
Europe approached nearer to tho spirit
of the substance of Democracy thau did
tho late ruler of France. And what was
his conduct in the last days of his twenty
When h?d?r the pr?ssur? of local ?ir
oumstances, not perhaps yet appreciated,
he declared war, ho placod himself with
his troops'and no doubt did all in bis
power to maintain tho arma of Franco.
It may bo that his military abilities Were
poor-wo baliovo they are. But no one
can doubt, that, as a ruler, ho exhibited
a skill, a foresight, a varied capacity and
an enlightened spirit, that places him in
tho ranks of tho great mou of his day
and generation. Without great talents,
no ono could have filled, ns Napoleon
III bas done, tho most conspicuous po?
sition in tho civilized world. Nor can it
bo denied, that, as an Emperor, bo eud
ed his earner with dignity. He did Dot
seek safety in flight. Ho did not leave,
as tho First Napoleon did, ou a memora?
ble occasion, bis beaton troops. But
when bo saw tho great disaster that tho
overwhelming army of his foes was lo
briug upon France, ns if socking to
break tho force of tho blow that was to
fall upon his beloved country, lie step?
ped promptly forward, and ncceptiug
the personal humiliation so wounding to
bis hopes aud his pride an mau, Empe?
ror, father, and husband, he laid down
his sword at tho feet of his kingly foo.
He thus, in offeot, said to tho Prussiau
King, "if you moko war upon the Impe?
rial dynasty, take my sword, and let
Franco bo spared. " Whilst, then, wo ac?
knowledge the foot that tho star of Na?
poleon the III has gone down forever
"amid the hills and woods of tho Ar?
gon nos," let no mau meanly mock him
iu the hour of bis calamity, but render?
ing unto Cosar the things that aro Ce?
sar's, let us do justice to those eminent
abilities and that rare tact that enabled
Napoleou tho III to bo a successful ruler
of a great people for twenty years.
Tho moral of Napoleon's fall is thus
stated by tho New York World:
"And these things bring us to the
moral of his fall. For if a mau so mueh
more highly cudowed, and iu tho main
so much moro nobly moved, uot only
than most princes boru in tho purple,
but thnu a decidod majority of tho elect?
ed chiefs of men, could not moko Cmsar
ism a success in such a country as
France, what man iu what country can
ever do so? The surreuder of the third
Napoleou, we repeat, then, is tho sur?
render not of tho man but of tho system.
It is a surrender in which all tho world,
therefore, may rejoice, save, perchauce,
tho very monarch who receives it. Tho
cry which went up ia so mo parts of
Europo, yesterday, hailing a new Empe?
ror of Germany in tho stead of tho fall?
ing Emperor of tho Fronch, will be a
cry of evil omen to victorious Germany
if it bo heard and answered by her. Not
in this caso will it be true, ns of tho an?
cient Scythians it was fabled to be, that
the strength of tho vanquished passes
into tho victor. The tragedy of Sedan
only repeats that elder lesson of Fon
tuiuebleau which the vanquished of
Sedan would not learn or hoed. Lot us
hope, for tho sake of Germany, of
Europo, and of tho world, that, if tho
victor of Sedan prove uo wiser, the great
pooplo, nt least, whom to-day ho holds
in tho hollow of his hand, may uot be
drugged by triumph into sharing his

Thc Prussian Military System-Tile De?
nian ot Voti Mol eke..
Tho admirable military system ol
Prussia has been fully illustrated in thc
present war with Frauce. This system
was first brought to tho notice of thc
world in tho war with Austria. It took
a few weoks only for Prussia to humble
tho pride of Austria as at Sadowa. In
about tho same time Franco has been
used up. War was declared hy the
French Chambers ou July tho 15th. Il
was on September 2-that is in about sis
weeks' time-that Franco found bei
Sadowa at Sedan. Now, Sadowa and
Sedan stand proud memorials of Prus?
sia's power and prowess, and Prussia
passes iu in il i buy pre-eminence beyond
Austria and Frunce to tako her place
as the leading power of Europe.
Prussia's military system consist?
in making every citizeu a sol?
dier, iu making the country a
camp und in writing muscle und mind.
Her tactics consist in promptly organizing
and throwing upou the foes vast bodies
of well-drilled and highly-disciplined
troops. Tho French have doubtlosi
fought grandly aud loyally, but outnum?
bered aud outgeneraled, their valor hat
not been able to save them from crush
ing defeats, lt is said that Moltko'f
genius wou Sadowa for Austria. If it ii
tho sumo geuius that has moved thi
Germau columns until they pounce
Bazaine in Mot/, and closed aroma
McMahon iu a circle of iiro at Sedan
then has it been clearly demonstrated
that this coutury has realized iu VO?
MOI.TKK ono of tho most brilliant ant
profound strategists that tho annals o
war show. With mathematical preci
sion, tho vast armies of Germany have
moved steadily on, ns if directed by om
muster miud-no pauses-no errors

COLUMBIA, S. C., August 26, 1870.
The undersigned, tax-paying citizens
of Columbia, of all political porties, here?
by earnestly protest against tho contract
for water supply for the city, entered
into botweeu tho Council and the repre?
sentative of Mr. S prague, aud strenu?
ously urge that it be at once rescinded,
for tho following reasons:
1. Because the citizens of Columbia
are altogether opposed to tho said con?
tract, ns unnecessarily raising tho already
2. Because it is usual iu enterprises of
such magnitude, in which every citizen
is deeply interested, for Council to take
tho sense of tho community, which in
this case was not done.
3. Because the terras of the contract
nre altogether in favor of Mr. Spraguo
and unjust to the city.
1. Because publication .should have
been made, ami tho contract been let to
the lowest bidder, if a further supply of
water was deemed necessary for the city.
5. Because the coutract vests in Mr.
Spragne, for twenty years, tho present
water works, engines, fixtures, pipes,
etc., erected at a cost of $100,000, or
more, if the city fails to pay the sum of
?1,000 quarterly-a consideration so
difficult to fulfill-tho result will proba
bably bo that by default, every part of
the property will revert to Mr. Spraguo,
aud the city of Columbia will drink their
water at his prices.
