KNOXVILLE WEEKLY CHKUNICLE, WEDNESDAY, AC'GUST it, 1870.

A Trip from llrt-iiiru lo Itcrlln Jtiiihii
ItntlroniN Hlslorir Scoiiom JIKocllnm
From our Special Correspondent.
IlKULIN, .Tilly 0, 1871).
For any one wlio would find recreation
and excitement, without exhaustion, and
improvement by u roynl roiul, I recommend
travel in North Germany. When otirgood
shin dropped anohor oil renter Hufen.
and I fcuw, for the llrst time, the low. Hat
country, the nntlmiated buildings, and the
clumsoy windmills of Dcutchland, I had a
somewhat dlU'crcnt opinion. Aouttertook
us oil' the ship and landed no on an artifi
cial levee, hunt of turf and brick, and
standing twelve feet above low tide and
about the fame height above the city be
yond. Tc crossed It, and descended by
thatched pavements and stone streets to
the railroad, and were on for Bremen,
which is thirty miles up the Wesor. With
small, dingv-looking engines, four-wheeled
cars, and doors in the sides, these trains
made about twenty miles per hour, and the
passengers arc quite comfortable. Tho
road-bed Is similar to ours, hut generally
covered with gravel, and without much
dust. Business appeal's to be dull, and
everybody to practice deliberation. This,
coming after Now York, is quite refrtmi
ing. AVc were glad enough to le on land
again, anyway, and our having time to
look about us and enjoy the scenery was
well appreciated. At Bremen the same
contented style was everywhere apparent.
People were walking leisurely to and fro.
through the streets as well as the shaded
promenades, and seemed remarkably indif
ferent towards care and trouble. I stopped
overoneday to cultlvatean intention I nave
for slowness. I do not intend even to inti
mate any disrespect for the Brcmenites;
they are wealthy and clever, and doubtless
travel as much (if the round of human hap
piness as people can. Anyway, life is full
of compensations, and those who go slow,
go long, and those who enjoy HtUe, enjoy
often. In Bremen there arc old men who
have spent their evenings for half a cen
tury in a cafe or beer garden, and who are
yet walking about with the same old step
and satisfied air. They do not aim at ex
cesses, and seem to have no trouble in
avoiding them. They live to a good old
age, seldom changing from one pursuit to
another, and generally complete a good
Bremen is over eleven hundred years old.
and many staunch old houses of medieval
origin show very well the former character
of the city and its people. There are also
plenty of recent buildings, with modern
architecture, and the windows everywhere
aro lined with flowers. The streets are re
markably clean and the shade inviting.
Tiio walks, or promenades, are exceeding
ly attractive, with banks of llowers in
every available space, and I do not wonder
at the mania these people seem to have for
walking about. There are flowers on every
hand, and the trees are veterans. I have
stopped hero longer than I intended, and
now with regret I am leaving Bremen, its
oddities of architecture and antiquities and
people. If I were planning another trip, I
should stop here much longer. "When
the swallows homeward fly ,r will hence
forth bring to me memories of Bremen,
with its red-tiled roofs, under whose eaves
wrmVands of swallows: build their homes
and twitter their vespers ceaselessly.
Our route to Hanover lay up the valley
of the Ithine, hut as the country is gene
rally flat, it is scarcely distinguished as a
valfev. The land seems to have been salt
meadow once, carefully cultivated howev
er, and now is almost a garden. Some of
the poorest of the land lias been set out
with forest trees, generally pines or aspens,
and as this hits been done many years, we
have the remarkable phenomenon of a
forest in right lines. Double and single
rows of grand old century trees stretch
away over the flat country, sometimes till
lost in the horizon, and making bounda
and hiahwavs. There arc but few
fences, and these very fragile, generally
built of sticks not larger tiian wanting
ranfis. Barlev. oats, wheat and beets are
the staple products of the lixlU-nx: rectan
gles into wnien ine mini is ;ui unmvu uj
thn ditches, which are about a yard deep.
More women than men arc seen working
in the fields, and sometimes superintended
bv storks, that stand on one leg and almost
see.u to wonder that the stout peasant
Khniiid have auv respect lor tnem.
In live hours wo reach Hanover, ourfirst
royal city, where wc see palaces, and mon
limmitK of kinirs. and crown-capped pilas
tors, which characterize such places. Tho
ilrlves. especially to Welfen Plata and
George's Park, are superb, under perfect
arcades of lime trees for from one to two
-miles. Hero is a colossal statue of Schiller,
also a monument to JAupnitz, a little US'
tnnco from tho house lie lived in.
Waterloo place, where Prussian soldiers
are drilling, is an open square, with a line
column erected In memory of the Hanovcr-
lnn who fell in that mull, we aseemied
hv mm hundred and eiirhty-eight steps and
looked out beyond the city, over the tree
tons nnd domes and turrets, upon tho level
lands of the spruce little kingdom that
was, with ever recurring rectangles and
ditches, all luxuriant with vegetation.
f oinintr down, we met a moody little stu
dent of the Polytechnic school, who told
us of tho war, and how Hanover fell Into
Pussla, ami snowed very pituiuy, as inn
old sexton did who showed us through
Martklrehe, that ho wus yet a Hanoverian.
I could sec it unmistakably, as he pointed ,
to the statue and arms of ids fid leu king,
and remarked, "The people may not speak
now what they think." I have talked
with citizens or several of the thirty odd
German sovereignties that were, and And
their patriotism pretty evenly divided bo
tweeli what might lx called "State Sover
eignty," and North German Unity under
Prussia; while it is perfectly evident tin
1-ttter is stVadily gaining ground.
From Hanover to Potsdam nud Berlin,
avc saw more uncultivated and apparently
sterile flats than liefore. We Mopped
twenty mlnutwatMiigdoburg: hurried up
through the old wall-, now being removed
and earth works Kul.-tituted, and through
a steep zigzag street of tail government
buildings, with a dentinal at every corner

THE OCEAN KACE. ,
In giving the result of the great ocean
race, tho New York l'Icrald whoso junior
Is the owner of tho American yacht Daunt
less in its issue of Thursday, says:
" Tho long agony is over. Tho great intenia
tionid ocean yncht race is completed, and tlio
Jiritisli yacht Cambria ha? unfurled her victori
ous colors before tho headquarters of tho New
York Yacht Club, whoro fho received yostcrdny
a strangor's wolcome. If tho result ot tho raco
does not fully satisfy ynchtmen on the relative
sailing qualities of tho two vessel?, it will per
haps demonstrate tho fnct that tho northern
oourao westward across tho Atlantic is proferablo
to tho long southern course in midsummer.
"The race was closely contested, thero boing
less than two hours difl'eronco in the tlmo of tho
two vachts reporting at tho lightship off Sandy
Hook. This, fur a raco of three thousand milcf ,
consuming over twonty-threo days of time, is
" Wo aro pained in having to chronicle tho
loss of the two noble seamen of tho Dauntloss,
who wero swoptofi"hcr jibboom whilo in tho per
formance of their duty. Tho Dauntless lay to
over two hours in tho Jiope of recovering tho un
fortunate men, but all eflorts -wero fruitless, and
their bodies wero left in tho grave of tho deep
ocean. We must forego comment on tho raco at
present, and refer to our fall and graphic ac
counts in another portion of tho paper.'
The Jlf.ohl, in giving an account of the
arrival of the Cambria, says that as it pass
ed the lightship, tho crew were all excite
ment to hear irom the Dauntless. Mr.
Ashbury, with trumpet in hand, sung out:
" Has tho Dauntless arrived ?"
It was a moment of terrible suspense, but
Captain Cosgrove promptly answered:
A rousing cheer from tho victorious craft
showed how welcome was tho roply, and tho red
flag having been run up to the lightship, tho
world was soon aware that the Cambria had won
tho race. "
The greatest number of miles sailed any
one day by the Cambria was 220, and by
the Dauntless 210. It may bo consoling to
Americans to think that if the Dauntless
had not been detained two hours by the
loss of her two seamen, she would have
been the winner.
The French Von Moltke.
As Von Moltke was hardly known to
readers out of Prussia anterior to the splen
did campaign which ended at Sadowa, the
man to whoso brain will be due whatever
of successful strategy shall characterize the
French arms in the coming war is as yet
unnamed. Gen. Louis Jules Trochu is to
day undeniably the best soldier of France.
He is now 65 years of age. A graduate of
the Statr School of St. Cyr, ho was made
Lieutenant in 1840, and promoted to a Cap
taincy in 1843. His llrst stall' service was
with "that line soldier, Bugcaud, in Alge
ria. Chef d'escadron and Major in 1840,
and Lieutenant-Colonel in 1853, his llrst
European service was in the Italian cam
paign. At tnc commencement oi tno jrnnean
war, he was made unlet oi tno uenerai
Statr, and by reference to Kinglake's His
tory, it wui be seen tnat in an conicrences
with Lord Itaglan, Trochu, rather tliau St.
Arnaud or Canrobert. was spokesman on
the part of France. Throughout the cam
paign, Having ueen mauo uenerai oi uri
gade in 1854, lie occupied this position of
confidential staff ollicer of tho Commander-in-Chief,
an ofllce analogous to that of Gne-
isenau unuer niucner, given in just recog
nition of his military ability and skill.
In 1804 he reached his gradejf General of
Division. Two years after, ho was charged
with the preparation of a plan to reorgan
ize tnu army, instead oi, as nas ueen sug
gested, lacking the Imperial confidence,
he has it in the most flattering degree.
His csay upon organization, JSArmcc
FranmUe, published m 1807, run through
ten editions. .Trochu is known to have an
ticipated tho event of a War with Prussia.
A recent pamphlet from his pen, which
unlortunateiv cannot be obtained in tins
country, developes an immense deal of
study of the Ilhenlsh frontier as a fighting
nelu, and palpably indicates tnc national
impulse as occupying the strategist's mind.
Should the war survive its first battle a
fortnight, and promise, as seems, very
likely, to be a long one, Trochu's name
may chance to appear at the head of tho
Kronen armies. Army ana JSai-y Journal,
The Confederate Cemetery at Elmira, '.Y.
We navo seen a late letter irom our es'
teemed friend, Mr. Thomas N. Davis, of
this city, (who has been absent for several
weeks past on a trip through New York
for the benefit of his health) in which he
refers to a visit to the Confederate Ceme-
terv at Elmira. in that State. It will be
remembered that Elmira was the site of
one of tho military, prisons :of the United
States Government during the war, and
that a great many Confcderatesoldiers died
there during their confinement, of their
wounds or of sickness. Mr. Davis repre
sents that the cemetery in which their re
mains are gathered is handsomely enclosed
and regularly laid out, tho walks being
neatly trimmed and gravelled, and the
trraves covered with grass, flowers and
shrubbery, all evincing marks of constant
care. Whether tills attention is rendered
by the citizens, the Government or tho
town authorities, Mr. Davis savs he is not
able to state, but it certainly reflects credit
on the taste, skin and lldelity of the par
ties who have it in charge. From four to
six thousand Confederate heroes sleep their
last dreamless sleep in this distant enclo
