Republicanism tm Barop?.
Monarchies are the natural enemies of
republics. The cold comfort given M.
Thiers by Earl Granville, daring their
last interview, shows the feeling of "the
powers that be" in ' Groat Britain to?
wards, the spread of republicanism,
while the action of the King of Prussia
in insisting that the present Provisional
Government of France is an irresponsi?
ble mob with which he will not treat for
penco and thng recognize, is a sufficient
proof of bis antipathy to tho establish?
ment oir a republic in hi* neighborhood.
The antogonisih between the monarch?
ists and the republicans in Europe is
deadly. The tending of the age towards
universal republicanism and its ultimate
prevalence, is merely a question of time.
In Frauce it bas reared a defiant front
aud has organized for thc immediate ne?
cessities of the uatiou. lu Italy the
smouldering fires aro with difficulty kept
down, the removal of the capital to
Homo being rendered imperative ns
a cheek to the republicanism that-was
becoming- dtrogeraira ro tho present
monarohicaHnstitutions of tbatcountry.
In Edg?ttt?cT t&V feeling of the masses
against "the g??at land own er? i? grow?
ing daily more bitter, and the agrarian
spirit ha*manifested itself in more ways
than one as', unmistakably hostile. The
intercourse Between Great1 Britain and
the United States* the influence of the
American presis oh trm English mind,
the dis3 at ^faction of many with the do?
mestic and foreign policy or the present
cabinet, all have the effect of producing
moro or less restlessness. Tho feeling
against the feudal element in some of
the monarchical countries grows stronger
and the establishment, although tempo?
rarily, of a republic anywhere in Eu?
rope, serves to shake the very founda?
tions of feudalism everywhere.
With the education of the European
masses, comos tho gradual extinction of
the monarchial and the formation of the
republican forms of government. The
intelligent popular mind, no longer be?
wildered or awed by tho gorgeousucss,
the splendor, the tinsel and trapping of
imperialism or royalty, will discover that
they are not necessary to a good govern?
ment, and will struggle to form a simpler
form, and one equally aa strong. There
is not a monarch ia Europe who does
not feel that his form of government will
pass away, and that, too, before many
decades. Their tenure of thrones aud
power is as brittle as glass and as weak
as a rope of sand, else we would not see
the spectacle of "vauishiug empires and
rising republics." Now-a-days, once let a
uatiou get a taste of 'Republicanism, and
all hope of a permanent empire.or mo?
narchy might as well be given up.
Prussia, which is a model of order,
energy, intelligence and compactness, is
the most efflciout government in Europe,
and its power and influence would pro?
bably be equally ns well sustained uuder
a Republican form of government as
uuder its present one to a certaiu ex?
tent, the most marked difference being
that under a Republican government tbe
advantage of tho one-mau power could
not be bad, but this would be counter?
balanced by a stroug cabinet and a bold
If the empire existed, and Napoleou
or the Empress were iu Paris to treat
with King William, tho war would spee?
dily end, and on more advantageous
terms, possibly, the Mobile Register
thinks, than Frauoe is likely to get now.
But the King of Prussia wants not ouly
to take Paris for thc eclat of it, but he
wants to put Napoleou back on tbe
throne, because be would be able to ma?
nage him for the future better than bc
could a hot-headed young republic, be?
sides he wishes to strangle republicanism
io Franco, and to put out this incendiary
element, because it would be iu danger?
ous proximity to bis own powder maga?
zine; for tkure are republican elements
in Prussia that might ignite from this
blaziug republican firo in Frauce, if it is
not stamped out before tho Prussians
leave France. England nod Prussia aro
undoubtedly iu accord as regards repub?
licanism in France; the former will stand
aloof wbilo tho latter either forces Napo?
leou down the throats of thc Frcucb
people, or olso wrings from Franco such
concessions, guarantees and provinces 03
will virtually dishonor and despoil her.
It is possible King William may succeed
in putting Napoleon back, and that
"Louis and I" may reign for awhile, but
with the (loath of tbe Emperor, thc re?
public would be almost a certainty again,
for the Bourbons would be then na they
have been of late-ignored altogether
.and tho march of republicanism, after
a temporary check, would bo continued.

Mattera Pertaining to the War.
TROCHU ON WAH.-Now that the ap?
proach of the Gorman armies to Paris
brings with eaoh day into greater promi?
nence the nanio of Trooho, the General
whom tho French Empire rejected, bot
npon whom the Ropublio' has imposed
its greatest .task, it will bo interesting to
see jost what manaor of man he ia, and
in what spirit he is likely to administer
one of tho most solemn and trying
tresta ever confided to a soldier,
j In a remarkable passage of his very
remarkable book on tho French army
a book which, in tho light of recent
events, assn m es" an almost prophetic
characterr-^-Troohtt 'trims speaks ot the
temper in whioh war mast be viewed by
soldiers who aro also citizens: "I must
bear my. witness," he says, "to a troth
with Which my own experience has
deeply impressed me, when I declare
that nothing less resembles war and bat?
tle than the common descriptions of
both. War, which imposes so many
sacrifices in men nnd money on tho peo?
ple who engage in it, and upon the ar?
mies which mako it so many trials and
efforts, breeds, csiiecially in the coun?
tries over which it is waged, most inevi?
table misery and disorder. Those of
old timo always degeucrated, and iu oar
own times ofton still degenerate iuto
outrngo, violence aud devastation,
wreaked upou tho innocent and habitu?
ally .inoffensive populations whioh aro
trampled uuder foot by tho contending
hosts. Here aro the real, wide-sproad,
terrible evils of war. They ure little
spoken of, if they aro spoken of at all,
for the cry of those ruined people is
stifled by tho emotious of tho battle?
field and of politics. But tho spectacle
of these dumb and helpless Bufferings is
heart-breaking to every soldier who pos?
sesses the least magnanimity. All such
soldiers are amazed that modern civili?
zation, which is so proud of having sup?
planted force in the dealings of man
with man by principles and by tho law,
should still be attempting to settle in?
ternational disputes by letting loose the
scourges of war. The souls of such sol?
diers sicken with scorn at tho aspect of
the carpet knights who invoke war, and
celebrate its glories in a conventional
jargou which betrays their vanity, their
iguorauce, their ambition and their pre?
tension. But, at the same time, the du?
ties aud tho responsibilities of high com?
mand caunot fail to elevate the senti?
ments of ?ll such men. To lead, thou,
troops, by tho authority of character and
of example, into adopting tho habits
and accepting tho rules of disciplino; to
dispose them to consideration and kind?
ness towards non-combatant populations;
to inspire the soldier with respect for
himself, with respect for tho mission
confided to him by his country, and
with such devotion to the high interests
I represented by his country's flag as shall
make it easy for bim to lay down bis lifo
in their behalf-what work can bo more
worthy than this of tho noblest heart
and the loftiest spirit? From this point
of view, I firmly behove that wars which
boar the double stamp of right and of
necessity oxalt tko temper of a nation,
snatch a community from tho enervating
enjoyment of a loug peace, aud recon?
struct its manhood by tempering au?jw
in the ordeal of peril and of endurance
its character and its soul."
These are the words, aud this is the
spirit of uo ordinary captain, and there
can be little doubt that, under such a
commander, tho defence of Paris and of
Franco, whether it be successful or un?
successful, will at least bo worthy of a
great people and of a civilized age.
THE SIEGE OF PAULS.-The investment
of Paris seems to be nearly completed,
although the circle about it is not yet
very strong iu all its parts. But the
isolatiou of the cit}' is BO far accom?
plished that no intelligence directly
from thence eau bo obtained except by
special messenger, if such shall be per?
mitted or be ablo to moko bis way
through tho surrounding lines. In view
of the misery and destruction of lifo
which iu any eveut must result from an
effort to reduce thc city by force, it is to
be earnestly hoped that negotiations
will even yet render it unnecessary.
Paris contains 2,000,000 of souls, aud in
addition the rural population for a cir?
cuit of twenty miles urouud have boen
thronging to it for weeks. Whether
the city bas been sufficiently provisioned
to support this multitude for a month or
two is an important question, in regard
to which the accounts are conflicting.
If Puris could hold out for sixty days,
and if tho spirit of the French people is
what it was sevouty-five years ugo, the
utter ruin which now threatens France
might be avoided. But there are grave
doubts on both these questions, lu re?
gard to tho capacity of Paris for defence,
tho strength of tho Parisian fortifica?
tions, built before tho invention of rilled
artillery, bas not boen tested. Walls of
masonry, unless strengthened by heavy
earthworks, could not long resist such
missiles as aro now sout from groat
guns, and it is stated that tho fortifica?
tions ure not everywhero of equal
strength. Still, if Gen. Trochu has
200,000 men, and they aro animated by
tho ancient French spirit, Paris might
bold out, it is believed, against assault
for more than a mouth, iu which event
annies could bo organized at other
points to undertake offensive operations.
But whether tho operations against it
aro iu the nature of siege or of desperate
fighting, as when its 20,000 defenders in
lhl4 were overpowered in tho end by the
80,000 allies, all at last depends upon the
spirit aud disciplino of tho French.
Judging from tho past, tho infant Re?
public bas not much chance agaiust the
heavy sword which has cut dowu the
full-growu empire. Wo carnostly hope,
therefore, that tho beautiful city, with
its vast population, mostly women aud
children, and its treasures of art and
science, may bo rescued by negotiation
from tho horrors and desolations of
siege aud battle-Baltimore Sun.
BISMARCK AT HOME-A PROPHETIC
j TALK AT THE HOME OF THE PRUSSIAN
I STATESMAN-TUE WAU DISCUSSED MOUE
THAH ? TEAS AGO.-Tba fol I o wi o g ia
taken from an article in the Inst number
of the German weekly paper JJahem, or
At Roma-. Tub writor is a well-known
membercl tfeb Ou?tomu Parliament, Mr.
H. Blum?; Fj '
Bo muoh senseless ab il ne is now con?
stantly heaped by Fronob ?oribes on oar
great statesman-, thai I think it is fit and
proper for us, who have so Often of late
years listened to him in private and con?
fidential conversation, to recall his ut?
terances on subjects relating to the pre?
sent war, at a time when wo were in the
depth of peace. Tiley hav? been kept
private by our circle hitherto, because
they were to be considered confidential
until tbcir author bad made similar
statements in public. It was on thc 12th
Juno, 18G9, when tho leadiug members
of tho Customs Parliament met at Bis?
marck's house for supper. Tho hock,
thc beer, tho crabs-everything was
fourni excellent, and the conversation
soon rou high, the nssombly comprising
men of the most antagonistic views. As
tho evening grew later, many withdrew
through a side-door, taking Freuch
leave; and Dr. Voelk, of Augsberg, the
most eloquent speaker for South Gurman
interests, was about to disappear iu like
manner, when ho was arrested by a deep,
mauly voice calling out, "Hallo, Voelk,
you must stoy to toast the 'Bridge o'er
the Main;' " aud with these words, Bis?
marck detained Voelk, who had that very
day given this name of "Bridge o'er the
Main" to tho customs union with the
South. Thus wo were kept together,
and for an hour we sat and plunged into
tho discussion of all sorts of things with?
out reserve, Bismarck ever witty and full
of spirited chafT amidst the most serious
discussions. Suddenly, he became quiet
and very earuest. The conversntiou had
touched upon the Luxemburg question,
and his guests did uot conceal their as?
tonishment that he should not at that
timo have arisen against French arro?
gance. Several gen tie in en described the
feeling of disappointment caused in their
provinces by the moderation and yield?
ing policy of Prussia regarding Luxem?
burg, and their remarks almost sounded
like a reproach. Thereupon, in a few
striking words, the Minister drew a pic?
ture of the position of affairs at that
period. Ile appeared deeply moved by
the subject, aud, with genius sparkling
iu bis deep oyes, ho contiuued to speak
to tho following effect: "I spent a long,
bitter week, which, however, histed only
Tuesday to Friday, meditating over the
question of war with France. The even?
tuality of defeat did not trouble us, for
wu had Moltko's assurance that we should
win. But the question wns whether we
should commence war with Franco even
though wo had the certainty, or tho ut?
most probability, of success. This mo
meutous question wo decided negatively,
and resolved to enter upon war only in
case it should be forced upon us. We
did consider all the frightful losses, all
the mourning, and all the misery of
many thousands of families. Yes, my
friends, you may look astonished; but
surely you will believe that I, too, have
a heart-a heart, let mn assure you, that
feels like j'onr own. War is war, and-so
terrible oro its consequences, so heart?
rending the cry of woo it calls forth,
that, as far as my influence goos, it shall
never bc resorted to excopt iu tho last
extremity." After n brief pause, bc
continued: "We thought, and think,
that a war with France, by being de?
layed, may perhaps be altogether avoid?
ed, either by certain events taking place
in Prance, or by tho Freuch people learn?
ing lo see that two powerful nations have
better things to do than to carry on bick?
ering about the border. We further?
more considered that acquisitions of
territory may contain the germ of future
quarrels, and that tho two nations, when
once set at each other, might have a lift
and death struggle of it. We determined
to bc masters in our own house, hut not
to chauge the liue of frontier as fixed.'
Ho concluded, speokiog iu that peculiai
maimer when deeply excited, breathing
quickly: "If, howevor, they will not re
eoguize our desire to bo at peace, and i:
war is over forced upon us, wo shall de
vote our full strength to it; and you
gentlemen of Bavaria, will then, I au
sum, hasten to take part in tho firs
bittlc, which, I daresay, would bo fough
near Metz. Even in that first fight, '.
am convinced we shall prove superior tc
the French in every respect." Ho stop
ped, and Dr. Voelk, to keep up this iu
tercstiug couversation, remarked tba
Gen. Moltko last year bad assured bin
that in case of war, we Germans shouh
be found to excel tho French iu point o
strength and rapidity of movement
"You may take his word for it, my deal
sir," said Bismarck, with great emphasiu
Ho looked very serious. We now know
frota tho teuor of tho secret proposal
made, how imminent thc dangor mus
havo appeared to bim. Tho remainiu:
guests left much impressed by what the
had heard, and when in tho street, w
agreed that tho words spoken that night
should be preserved iu our memory.
TUB IUI'EHIATJ PnisoNF.it.-Tho lette

Listen, for what I can now give you
a pago of history. Napoleon III bavin
written to tho King of Prussia the letti
which you are acquaiulod with, Willia;
replied: "Let him como himself ; otho
wise he will be treated like a private
soldier, although he .scarcely deserves
it." Napoleon then betook himself in
the manner related to the farm at wh&bh
tho King had established his headquar?
ters. Tue cal?che having arrived at the
door of the house, the ex-Emp?ro?
alighted, extinguished his cigarette, and
entored alone into the ! ow chamber;
where the King, in a General's uniform,
with his holmet on, was walking np and
down in a feverish state, his hands
crossed behind his back. The Prince.
and tho great officers formed a group in
ouo of the corners of tho apartment.
The ex-Emperor took off his hat and
saluted tho King, using tho German
language. William did not reply, either
by word or gesture, but after a few moro
paces, came aud placed himself erect,
stiff, and terrible, in frout of Napoleou,
who remained bareheaded, withins bend
slightly iucliued. "Sire," he said, still
iu German, "I como to repeat to your
Majesty viva voce what I had the honor
of writiug to you yesterday evening."
"It is well, sir," replied the Kiug, whose
color was considerably heightened,
whilst his voice had a whistling souud,
owing to tho efforts hu made to restrain
himself, "I have decided that Spandau
shall bo assigned to you for prison-1
moan residence; you will there wait my
"Sire," said Napoleon - "I have
spoken, sir," exclaimed the King, strik?
ing his sabro on tho dusty floor of tho
room. "Au revoir dunc .Monsieur, mon
frere," said tho Emperor, this lime in
French; ho then saluted iu the most
courteous manner the different person?
ages, aud left the room ns calm as if he
had been presiding at au opening of the
Chambers. When outside, he took a
cigarette, and lighted it by the cigar of
a cuirassier in white uniform, and was
preparing to again get into his carriage,
when a general officer came from tbe
King to beg bim to pass into a neighbor?
ing court, where William, who wished to
havo a longer conversation, would send
for him. Napoleon said not a word,
but, escorted by two cuirassiors, passed
into a court where lhere was a small
woodoo bench at the edge of a little
pieco of water. On this, ho quietly
took his seat, continuing to smoko, and
only stoppiug at intervals to look at the
pool and tho stalf-oflicer, who, standing
np, was watching all bis movements.
After waiting a quarter of nu hour, thc
ex-Emperor, in French, begged the
officer to order him a glass ot water.
One of tho cuirassiers brought it. Iii
moistened his lips with it, aud then
looking at the contents of glass, Biuiie?
and said to the officer: "Nero, wber.
conquered, passed bis last hour near t
pond, from which he drank: I am mon
fortunato than he." Then, having
swallowed all the water and given bael
tho glass: "It is true," he added, "thai
my reign never resembled bis."
So saying, be rosomcd bis smoking
After a" good half-hour a general officei
came from tbe Prussian monarch to beg
bim to enter a room where the King was
! alone. They remained together foi
! nearly an hour und a half, speaking in ;
very low tone. At the end of the inter
view the ex-Emperor got into a post
chaise with the Prussiau arms iu it, nm
took the route by Luxemburg to Cassel
where he will proceed to Spandau. Thi
last is a fortress which protects Berlii
on the North-east side; it contains i
State prison of a very gloomy aspect
Those who form tho suite of the Kiu|
pretend that it is the intention of hi
Majesty to leave Napoleon them to th
end of his days. A perpetual imprison
mont, thc Kingia reported to have said
would be only the just chastisement o
so great au offender. Au officer of th
Prussian staff, who is going to Narnu
and Brussels on u special mission, ailinn
that without the intervention of th
Priuce Royal and that of Count de Bit

the Emperor shot, so great was his ea
asperatiou agaiust him for having cause

The equipages, carriages, and tho impt
rial servants were seized on at Arion b

readily did. You can have no idea i
