l> OAK TOT FBBNOH RBPUBIIIO STAND?
Speculation aa to tho chances of the con?
tinuance pf a Bepublican Government in
France, munt, at this time, be wild and
desperate. There ia soarcely anything
upon .which to found a theory or to
strengthen a guess. We have facts from
history before as, which show that two
Republican experiments in Franco have
been failures. Butin each instanco, we
have the proof that the tendency of the
French people to Republican Govern?
ment was subverted and ( urned unido by
a Bonaparte. After the terrors of the
French Revolution, the Government of
France, considering tho stormy charac?
ter of the times, was judiciously cou
duoted by the Directory. But tho Direc?
tory interfered with the ambitious plans
of Napoleon Bonaparte, uud with tho aid
of the a? my, he overthrow that deposi?
tory of power, aud tho three Consuls
were appointed. The First Consul soon
became Consul for life, and then Empe?
ror,, and so the fuir fabric of liberty iu
France was toro dowu by thc man who
had been nurtured and strengthened and
placed in power by the opportunities af?
forded him by a Republican Govern?
ment. The Republic of 1818 was esta?
blished with very little bloodshed, and
conducted with prudeuoe by its origina?
tors, and with honesty by Gen. Cavaig
nao. Bat Franco had not yet supped
ber full cup of woes from the bauds of
the Bonapartes. That truo und hauest
old Republican, Cavaignac, whoso faith
had never been doubted, did not seem
to have the qualifications, in the lick lo
minds of Frenchmen, necessary to secure
tho national glory. He was put asido iu
deference to the supposed claims of a
Bonaparte, and Charles Louis Napoleon,
Whose ambition had been always to carry
oat tho traditions of tho fatuity, was
chosen in his stead. Napoleon III, li ko
Napoleon I, carno into tho possession of
power under the Republic, with pledges
of fidolity to tho Rupublicuu cause. But
as soon as tho last Bonaparte was fully
seated iu authority, he began those in
trigues which wero ueees->ury to m ak o
him au aatocrat. The coup d'clal of De?
cember, 1851, led to the extension of his
term as President for ten years. Thc
pl?biscitant, in which less than 8,000,000
votes were cast altogether, was tho form'
used to make him Emperor, and he as?
sumed that title oa December 2, 1852.
Thus, it seems, that every effort in
France to establish a Republic, however
honest the feoliogs of the people might
have been, bas been rendered futile and
pat aside by Bonaparte influence. The
third endeavor may or may not havu dif?
ferent results. If Franco were freo from
invasion, if the deposition of Napoleon
bad beeu the result of a popular move?
ment in time of peace, no other nal ion
would have dared to interfere. But under
present circumstances, with forcigu sol?
diers upon her soil, with the scions of
the bouses of Orleans and Bourbon ba?
nished, there was really uo method avail?
able, for the time being, to maintain
order, but the establishment of a govern?
ment restiug upon tho will of the people.
Whether Prussia will interfere aud en?
deavor to bring back some of tho repre?
sentatives of past royalty, or whether
the Republic will have a chunco to esta?
blish itself permanently; whether foreign
uations will endeavor to take part in this
m at tor, are things which at present can?
not be guessed.
The New York Times says:
The Empiro must have been a fraud,
or a collapse so sudden aud completo
had been impossible. ?Six weeks ugo, it
was the bugbear of Europe. Two weeks
later, it menaced the Germany which hus
crushed it like an egg shell. In thut
interval, its hollowness has boen proved.
Its hold upon the heart of Frunce has
beon Bhown to bo ns mythical as tho
armed hos <8 which figured for yearn on
the pay-rolls. The .miuuufaeture of a
popular vote was easy while a costly
organization was in the Imperial sor
vico, but there is no longer any necessity
to conceal the aversion and contempt
with which tho Imperial uamo is regard?
ed by tho peoplo. Tho absence of
anger renders tho revulsion more re?
markable. Nothing that can evince a
determination as far as possible to oblit?
erate tho traces of Napoleon's rulo is
omitted, but in tho demonstrations there
is uo ill temper. Eugenio pusses unmo?
lested out of a sido door of the Palace,
aud wends her way to Belgium.
Tho New York Herald asserts that tho
moral effect of tho war is already shak?
ing up tho great nations of Europe.
Spain, which has been hoping for a Re?
publican Government since the expulsion
of Queen Isabella, is again excited on
the question, and a strong Republican
sentiment is obtaining expression. Con?
flicts have occurred between Republicans
and Carlista in some parts of the cona try,
tho Constituent. Corps has been called
for September 15, and tho Regent hu:
returned to Madrid. The Itahau troops,
with tho hopo of transferring theil
capital to Rome, aro again in urina mov
ing upon tho Holy City, with no Na
poleon or French troops to block tin
way, end with every prospect of suooess
tn their undertaking. In Austria the
establishment of German unity has pro?
duced tap al most rovo] utionary. son ti naen t
favoring a fuoion with the TTniSpd (Tor
man Confederation. Ton Bod st himself
is said'to favor tho union. Thoa tho
gr??t war begins to spread, and no ono
knows where it may end.
STATEMENT OF GENEBATJ WIIITFTEN.
General de Wimpfien, who surrendered
at Sodnn, publishes a long explanation
in the Paris papers regarding his posi?
tion at tho time of the surrender. In it
he states that he hos recently arrived
from Algeria, and was immediately or?
dered to a i command under Marshal
McMahon, at Sedan. On his arrival
thore he found McMahon suffering from
severe wounds in his book aud hip, re?
sulting from the explosion of a shell,
fragments of which had struck bim, in?
capacitating him from active directions
of tho movements of his army. Genoral
Wimpfien was thus compelled to nssumo
commaud of the army, which was already
beuteu. Though ignorant of tho posi?
tion, still ho refused to sigu articles of
Tho Prussians produced a map which
showed thc position of tho Gcrinuu troops
and batteries, and convinced him that
the destruction of tho French army was
inevitable. Then ouly was tho surren?
der concluded. Tho following is the ad?
dress of Geueral Wimpfien to tho sol?
diers, dated Sedan, September 3:
Soldiers: Ou Thursday you fought
against a force greatly superior in num?
bers from daybrcuk until dark. You re?
sisted tho enemy with tho utmost brave?
ry. When you had fired your last car?
tridge, were worn out with fighting, and
not being able to respond to tho call of
your generals aud ofiicors to attempt to
rejoin Marshal Bazaine by the road to
Montmedy, yon were forcod to retreat on
Sedan. lu this desperate effort but two
thousand men could be got together, and
your general deemed the attempt utterly
hopeless aud impraticable. Your gene?
ral found, with deep regret, when tho
army was re-united within tho walls of
the town, that it had supplies neither of
food nor am mu nit ion ; could neither
leuvo tho place nor defeud it, means of
existence beiug aliko wanting for Ibo
population. I was, therefore, reduced
to the sad alternative of treating with tho
enemy. I sont, yesterday, to tho Prus?
sian headquarters, with full powers from
tho Emperor, but could not at first bring
myself to accept tho conditions imposed
by tho oucmy. This morning, however,
ni en aced by a bombardment to which wo
could not reply, I decided to muko a
fresh attempt to get J onorablo terms. I
have obtained conditions by which we
aro saved much of tho possiblo annoy?
ing aud insulting formalities which the
usages of war generally impose.
Under tho circumstances iu which wo
fiud ourselves, it only remains for us,
officers and soldiers, to accept with resig?
nation tho consequences of Ibo surren?
We have at least the consolation of
knowing a useless massacro has been
avoided, and wo yielded only under cir?
cumstances against which no army could
fight-namely, want of food and ammu?
Now, soldiers, iu conclusion, let mo
say that you uro still able to render bril?
liant services to your country without
beiug needlessly slaughtered.
General Commanding in Chief.
BAD FAITH or TUE FRENCH.-On Sat?
urday tba whole force, laid down their
arms. Not a few soldiers in their rage
broke rather" than give up their arms,
and the st reids were littered with frag?
ments of all kinds of weapons broken -
swords, riilcs, pistols, lancers' helmets,
cuirasses, even mitrailleuses covered the
ground; aud in ono pince where the
Meuse runs through the town tho heaps
of such fragments chokod tho stream and
roso above tho surface. The mud of the
streets was black with gunpowder. Tho
horses had been tied to the houses aud
gun carriages, but nobody remembered
to food or water thom, and in tho frenzy
of hunger and thirst they broko loose
aud rah wild through the towu. Who?
ever likod might have a horse-even
ollie rs' horses which wero private pro?
perty-for thc tronblo of catching them.
A PRECEDENT.-In 1525, King Francis
I, of Frunce, surrendered at Paris to the
Emperor Charles V, of Germany. More
than 300 years pass, and another occu?
pant of the throne of Franco surrenders
to ono who claims the titlo of Emperor.
In the first caso, tho royal prisoner was
woll treated by Jiis captor, and tho cap?
tor soon after entered a monastery, and
t here died. Francis I was tho originator
of tho "Field of the Cloth of Gold,"
though not the author of tho drama of
that name. Ho also invented tho say?
ing, (in a letter to his mother:) "All is
lost except honor"-a lino sentiment,
which will outlast tho lines of Louis
Napoleon, who wrote: "As I cannot die
at tho head of my army, I lay niy sword
at t"e feet of your Majesty."
DESERTED CHAMBERS.-When Eugenie
left her room at tho Tuilleries tho wreck
consisted of trunks, band- loxes and un?
limited fjmalo wearing apparel. Tho
Emperor's room was full of hats, empty
segar boxes, a prodigious number of
bottles of phosphate of iron, books,
papers and ;i revolver caso. Tho Princo
Imperial left behind an unfinished histo?
rical exorcise and a lot of leaden soldiers.
So all that remained of imperialism con?
sisted mainly of band-boxes, phosphate
of iron and a handful of toys. When
wo behold tho Emperor of the French a
prisoner in tho hands of the Prussians,
and seo tho Empress flying to his side,
we can not but remember tho fato of
Maximilian aud of poor Carlotta, and
tho question naturally presents itself:
"Is uot this retributive justice?"
GUIZOT.-This venerable and eminent
sto.tesmau has turned up, and expresses
glorious hopes for Franco, in spite of her
A lino lot of Brandy Peaches, domes?
tics to be had at POLLOCK'S.
THE FRENCH IMPERIAL FAMTLY.-Tho
late Emperor of the Frenob, Napoleon
III,, is at Wilholmahoho Castle, near
Cassel, Germany, a prisoner of war, with
an imrnonso train pf attendants; the ex
Empress Eugenio is a gneet ot the
Ho og vc un family, at their Chateau of
Moyose, near Brussels, Belgium; and
tho Prince Imperial, under the oharge of
bis governor, is at Hastings, England.
The Empress, it is given out, intends
first to visit her husband and then to re?
join her son at Hastings. With tho con?
clusion of a treaty of peaco between
Germany nud France tho Emperor will
doubtless be given bia liberty, and in all
probability will establish his residence
with his family in England. Powerless
to do any further mischief, ho will not
bo held as a prisoner by tho groat pow?
ers, as was his ?nele, lirst ut Elba and
then nt St. Helena; but with a settle?
ment with Franco wo expect he will be
reloascd, "with all tho world before him
where to choose," and that from his
entente cordiale with Euglund he will
thoro, like Louis Phillippe, pass the terra
of his oxilo, troubling the world no more.

THU PRUSSIAN FOIIM or GOVERNMENT.
Prussia, proper, is now a constitutional
monarchy, hereditary in the mule lino of
the house of Hohenzollern. Tho consti?
tution, which is derived from grunt by
King Frederick William IV, brother of
tho present sovereign, modified by sub?
sequent grants, and has only been in ex?
istence since 1818, vests tho executive
and part of the legislative authority in
tho king. In tho executive branch bc ia
assisted by a cou noil of ministers ap?
pointed by himself. The legislativo
bodies consist of tho "Herrenhaus,"
which is tho Upper Chamber, and is
composed of the princes of tho royal
family; sixteen "mediatized" friends;
tho heads of tho territorial nobility;
eight life peers; eight titled noblemen
olected by tho laud owners in the eight
provinces; representatives of the uni?
versities; tho beads of "chapters;" the
mayors of towns haviug moro than
50,000 inhabitants; and persous nomi?
nated at tho pleasuro of thc king. The
second chamber is composed of 4.32
members, chosen for threo years by
I general but not universal BU fir age.
A COLORED MAN SHOT.-On Friday
last, in Barnwell County, a colored man,
named Henry Hutchinson, was badly
shot by another colored man named
Henry Black, ^t appears that Black
had hired Hutchinson a molo to ride ou
to Augusta, nud, while there, Hutchin?
son pawned tho mnle. On his return to
Barnwell, Black attempted' to airest
Hutchinson, who ran, wherenpou Black
fired, hitting him in thu back, and in?
flicting a severe wound. Hutchinson
wns committed to jail in Augusta. The
mulo was recovered.
A REBEL LEO AND A LOYAL LEO.
Colonel John H. Savoge, of Warren, ,
Tenn., declines a nomination to Con?
gress, because of the fourteenth amend?
ment. Nevertheless, he thinks the
United States han no sufficient causo to
hold him, in law and morals, nu enemy
aud a rebel, for ho has a rebel leg and
a loyal leg-ono shattered under tho
United States flag at Molino del Rey,
and tho other under tho Confederate
Stales Hag at Perry ville.
The census, now nearly completed, is
agitating New Yorkers, because it givo3
only about OOO,OOO population. But this
is explained in the enormous growth of
our suburbs. Brooklyn shows an in?
crease of fully one-half, aud other near
points even moro. Somo wards of
Brooklyn havo doubled in fivo years.
Now York City will hardly hold its six
members of Congress, as it has but five
out of thirty-two State Senators.
Two valuable horses wer? being exer?
cised in Manchester, Vermont, a few
days ago, and while going in opposite
directions, collided, instantly killing one
horse, tho shaft penetrating his vitals.
The other bas n shaft wound in his
bre.ast, and his right fore leg broken. It
will have to bo killed. Both wero valu?
Gallantry saved a youug gentleman's
lifo in Bath County, Ky., a few days
ago. Two ladies named Dennis, in
walking homo during a storm, took shel?
ter under a tree, Mr. Harry Riddle
vacatiug tho dry spot for them just in
timo to receive n severo shock from tho
lighting, which killed MissEllen Dennis,
who took his position.
Afluir? in San Domingo once more

Baez hus lost his popoulurity, and his
deposition from power will probably bo

Tho people of San Domingo never seem
content, savo when they aro on tho evo
or in tho throes of a revolution.
EDUCATION or THE COLORED PEOPLE.
Gen. O. O. Howard's Freedmen's Bu?
reau report for tho past fiscal year shows
somo advance in thu education of colored
people During tho lust half year there
havo been 2.G77 schools, with 3.G33
teachers und 149,581) scholars; 33,221 of
these pay their own tuition; only 0,887

teachers aro colored aud 1,308 white.
On Thursday ufternoon, as a construc?
tion train on thc East Tennessee, Virgi?
nia and Georgia Railroad was leaving
the station at Sweetwater, tho boiler
exploded, killing tho cngineor, Mr. Hugh
Burger, and badly scalding Mr. A. Min?
ion, tho fireman.
Tho military career of King William
I, of Prussia, extends over a period of
fifty-five years. His Majesty, who was
born iu 1707, was present at tho battle
of Waterloo, and was then but eighteen
years of r^e.
Tho New York Tribuue, now that tho
boot, is on tho other log.'iu describing
the enormities committed by the Turcos,
no longer claims that "tho colored
?roops fought nobly."
The death of Gen. Robert Auderson,
of Fort Sumter notoriety, is reported.
The JPrincoss Mathilde is the sister of

The descent of the balloon terribly
