.'Tbe future og Franoc"-V Striking
The New York World re-publishes
from the Fortnightly Review au article on
"The Future of Franco." It is said to
have been written by M. EMIXIE DE LA
VEJIBYB, a distinguished French publi?
cist. This article has attracted much
attention. It merits the consideration
it has received, for it is evidently con?
ceived in a deep, calm and philosophical
spirit. This able writer reviews tho
causes of French prostration and defeat,
suggests that the present chastisement
may bo wholesome, and throws out the
hopeful thought that by means of educa?
tion, compulsory military service and an
intelligent press, Franco may secure ber
recuperation and make herself stronger
in the future than she has boen in tho
past. To say the lonst, thc philosophy
of M. DB LAVEL-EYE is fin I of consola?
tion to the vanquished Fi ouch. He
starts with tho approval of EUGENE FEI>
IIETAN'S proposition, viz: that just as in
gambling, "who loses, gains," so in mo?
dern wars, tho vanquished draws moro
advautages from bis defeat than thc con?
queror from bis victories. M. DE LA
-VEiiBYE then planting himself upon tho
Christian principle that chastisement is
?wholesome, and punishment ike condition
of improvement, tells France that it is
her duty to give the lio to tho siuister
prophecy that this is "thc end of Gaul."
Says tho writer, with bis timely philoso?
phy: Be, ob! Franco, of good cheer!
Draw from events the lessons thoy con?
tain-turn them to }'our own good, und
tho year 1870 may bo for you the
dato of a completo renovation, und
tho beginning of a new em of
sober glory aud real progress. You
have bad a bath of blood. Make it a
source of restored youth. Lot it be
shown that you havo in that bath cleansed
yourself from all tho pollutions of your
past. Begin a new and botter national
life. Build your futuro greatness upon
au enduring basis. Learn and live. ?I.
DE LAVELEYE thou proceeds, iu au able
and convincing way, to consider the les?
sons by which Fruuco is bound to profit,
on pain of death. Ho asks, whouco it
comes that Germany bas BO rapidly and
^completely overcome France, "which is
equally populous, moro rich and moro
warlike." It is in answer to this great
question, which is now agi tuting so muuy
minds, that tho acute publicist contends
that Germany has conquered France, be?
cause of tho superior education of tho
people of the former country. It was
IGNORANCE that defeated France, be
holds-ignorance in diplomacy-igno?
rance in generals-ignorance iu oflieers
-ignorance in soldiers-ignorance, with?
out bound or limit, in the press. War
is now au affair of science, and Germany
beat France because of ber grouter sci?
entific culture. When tho Turcos and
Zephyrs of tho French army met the
men in spectacles, coming from the uni?
versities, and writing upon occasion in
Hebrew or Sanskrit, tholatter oonqucrcd.
"The men in spectacles have beaton the
wild beasts from Africa. In other words,
intelligence bas beaten savagery." Thus
arguing, tho French critic, not sparing
France, goes on to ostablish, with argu?
ment, and fact, and illustrations, bis
proposition that German success is attri?
butable to superior mental aud physical
training, and that French redemption is
to spring from a "system of universal
education, compulsory military sorvice,
better respect for thc laws, and a re?
formed press." In fine, M. EUILE DI:
LAVELEYE tells Franco that if sho would
recover hor glory aud re-establish ber
fortuues, she must not disdain to learn
wisdom from ber cuetnj-.
The length of the article we have thus
reviewed and somewhat analyzed, pre?
cludes our re-publishing it. Wc do,
however, commend it to all interested io
the future of France, und concur with
tho World in ?ty observation that the ar
tiolo is singularly able und timely.

MISS ADELAIDE PHILIIIPPS.-Our citi?
zens manifested their appreciation of
trno merit by filling Irwin's Hall last
evening, in every part, and responding
with a heart-felt enthusiasm to nearly
overy piece selected. It is seldom that
a concert company embracing so much
of talent and musical attainment has
visited our city. Miss Phillipps is a ge
nuiuc artist. With a voice of great na?
tural power and melody, sbo has cer?
tainly uudergouo a thorough training
under the best of masters. Tho pieces
solcctcd and volunteered embraced al?
most the entire rango of music, and yoi
sbo was excellent in all. "Coming thro'
tho Rye" was rendered somewhat origi?
nally, but nono tho worso for thal, und
with tho spirit appropriate to tho sub?
ject; tho samo of tho "Laughing Song,"
which, by tho way, was admirable, while
the low, melancboly notes of tho "Boso
Bush" moved every heart. Tho pieces
of a higher and different order of merit
proved that she was equal to anything
that a discriminating audience could ex?
pect of one in ber profession. Thc
remainder of tho troupe-Mr. Hoffman,
pianist; Mr. Hasler, baritone; and Mr.
Levy, on tho cornet-aro all splendid
performers in their respective roles.
"The Carnival o? Birds," by Mr. lloff
muD, was au extraordinary performance,
while all his pieces wero givon with su?
perior taste and correctness. The cornet
solos, and tba duet, "Horn of tho Alps,"
in which Miss Phillipps took part, could
not havo beeu excelled. Mr. Hasler was
so good that tho audience only regretted
tho economy with which ho dealt out bis
favors. As a whole, tho concert was ono
of tho most successful wo havo had in
our city for rnuuy years, aud all loft thc
room with a rogrct that circumstances
wero such as to provo ut a repetition of
Mr. Lovy, tho lion cornet-player, is
entitled to more than a passiug notico.
Ho is certainly tho very best performer
wo have over had the pleasure of hear?
ing. His favorito instrument is a beau
tiful and artistic piece of work. It was
made by Antoine, Courtois, of Paris; Ar?
thur Chappell, of Bond street. Loudon,
being tho sole agent.
Irwin's Holl-which was inaugurated
last night-is a valuable addition to tho
necessities of Columbia. It is a large
and well ventilated room.
