TUE SURRENDER OP METZ.-Tbis event
of courso hns produced a profouud sou
nation as well iu Franoo as in Germany.
The following is tho proclamation of the
Frenoh Government, which breathes a
lofty spirit which rises with disaster:
FRENCH REPUBLIC-LIBERTY, EQUALITY,
FRATERNITY - PROCLAMATION TO THE
FRENCHMEN: Ruine your spirits and
resolution to tho fearful height of perils
which havo broken upon our country.
Tt still depends on US to mount nbnve.
misfortune and show the world how great
o people may be who aro resolved not to
perish, and where courage increases in
tho midst of calamity.
Motz has capitulated. A General
upon whom Franco counted, even after
Mexico, has just taken away (vient d'en?
lever) from the country in its danger
moro than 100,000 of its defenders.
Marshal Bazaine has betrayed UB! He
has made himself tho agent of tho man
of Sedan and the accomplice of tho in?
vaders, and regardless of tho honor ol
the army of which ho had charge, ho has
surrendered, without even making a lnsi
effort, 120,000 fighting men, 20.00C
wounded, guns, cannon, colors, and thc
strongest citadel of Franco, Metz, virgir.
but for bim, to tho contamination of thc
Such a erinn; is above even tho punish
ment of justice. Meanwhile, French
men, measure tho depths of the nbysi
into which tho Empire has prccipitatci
you. For twenty years France submit
ted to this corrupting power, which ex
tinguished in her the springs of greatnes
and of life. The army of Franco, strippet
of its nationul character, became, with
out knowing it, an instrument of tyrann;
and of servitude, and is swallowed up ii
spite of the heroism of tho soldiers b;
tho treason of their chiefs. lu tho dis
asters to tho country, in less than tw<
months 250,000 have been delivered ove
to the enemy, a sinister sequel to th
military coup de main of December.
It is time for us to re-assert ourselves
citizens, and under tho icgis of the Rc
public, which wo have determined no
to allow to capitulate within or withoul
to seek in tho extremity even of on
political and social morulity and mar
hood. However tried by disaster, let u
bo found neither panic-stricken nor hes
tating. Let it bo seen that we are read
for tho last sacrifices, and in tho face (
enemies, whom overything favors, let r
sweur never to give up so long as thei
remuins au inch of sacred soil under tl
soles of our feet. Let us hold firmly tl
glorious banner of tho French revoh
Our cause is that of justico aud <
right. Europo sees it; Europe feels i
lu the presence of macy unmerited mi
fortunes, spontaneously receiving froi

Long live the Republic, one and inc
visible. Signed by Cremieux, Gk
Biziou and Gambetta.
The proclamation, placarded about t
streets, attracted crowds of readers, ai
creates great excitement. Groups
people are discussing it. The trcache
of Bazaine is denounced, and bitter i
precations are uttered against thc Dot
Oommeuting thereupon the New Yo
"THE REPUBLIC AND BAZAINE.-Wh

'.lt is impossible to deny that th
aro many things in tho accounts wh

"But without entering fully to-day
th? question of Marshal Bozaino's g
or innocence, wo may unreservedly c
mend to tho admiration of our rea*
tho fearless, resolute, and mnscn
tone of tho proclamation in which
Government at Tours announce
great catastrophe to tho people of
republic. It extenuates nothing of
extent of the disaster, conceals uoth
and concedes nothing. How far tho
high' ?ud unconquered tono o? tho Go?
vernment is j untitled by th? state of the
military organization; with which Re?
publican Franco is preparing to meet
her victorious foe?, wo shall know in a
few weeks at furthest. Meanwhile no

most cordial sympathies to the spirit
with which theso lenders of a people

BISMARCK ON THE SITUATION AT PARIS.
The following memorial in regard to the
fatal consequences to which the popula?
tion of Paris aro exposed by a prolonged
resistance, has been sent by Count Bis?
marck to the Ambassadors of North
Tho conditions of armistice offered to
M. Jules Favre, intended as the basis for
tho re-establishment of order in France,
huvo heen rejected by him and his col?
leagues. They thereby decreed the con
! tumut ion of a struggle which, accord
I iog to tho course of events, appears
I without any chance of success for the
I Sinco thou, the prospects of France in
j this war, so full of sacrifices, have still
j further declined. Toni and Strasburg
havo fallen. Paris is olosely surrounded,
and German troops are advancing along
tho Loire. Tho largo forces before en?
gaged near the above fortresses aro now
at tho free disposal of the German com?
Tho country has to bear the conse
quonces of a war a'oulrance decreed by
? tho French authorities in Paris. Its
sacrifices will bo unnecessarily increased,
! and its social condition suffer more and
j moro dangerous decomposition.
I Tho command of the German armies
! docs not find itself in a situation to
counteract this; but perceives clearly the
consequence of the resistance chosen by
? the powers in France, and feels compelled
to call general attention to one point,
viz: tho Bpecial condition of Paris.
I The heaviest attacks heretofore made
from this capital, (on the 19th and 30th
i of last month,) in which the elite of the
armies collected in that city, have not

Tho unwise destruction of railways,
bridges and canals, within a certain dis?
tance around Paris, by the Frenoh, has
not been ablo to stop for one moment
thu advance of the German armies; all
communications by land or water, need?

established in a very short time. These
repairs, naturally, regard military inte?
rests exclusively, while the other de?
structions, evon after a capitulation, will
prevent for a long time the communica

It will bo an absolute impossibility foi

stores there are necessarily required foi
the uso of the German troops, will thei
offer no resources, and will not penni
