THE COMPLICATIONS IN PKANCE.
"When McMalion was defeated at Wels
.senburg nnd the battles succeeding It, and
Frossard was defeated atForbach, the pop
ulace of Paris, from the gamin to the pro
found states-man, Thiers, grew indignant.
Hp little conlldence did.they have in Na
poleon that they demanded a change In the
conduct of the Avar and clamored loudly
for arms with which to defend themselves
and la belle Fiance. The Corps Legislatif
shared tho distrust of the people, and de
manded the retirement of Le Rcetif and an
investigation of his generalship. "Vo have
published enough of tho proceedings of
this body to show our readers the temper
and character of their debates. They were
only reconciled at last by tho change made
In some of the commanders and the pro
mise of Napoleon that tho future should
show better generalship nnd decisive vic
toria". But instead of bulletinsanuouucing
the expulsion of Gorman invaders from
French soil, or even n successful resistance
to further advances, his,, dispatches startle
Paris with the announcement of the evacu
ation of that impregnable fortress and im
portant strategic center, tho city of Metz.
Not only Metz, but Nancy, Frouurd and
Lttneville are in the hands of tho one- j
my, and yet their advance is not
checked. The enemy's cavalry cut the
railroads and destroy all telegraphic com
munication with Chalons anil Paris. This
io the news whloh was bulletined in Paris
on Sunday night, and that it did not ulliiy
the storm of indignation that had been but
tcmporarilysubdued, wo may well imagine.
Paris was "tumultuous" again on yester
day, we dare say, and will bo to-day, and
the next day, and continue so until some
strong arm and stout heart shall be found
who can stem the tide of reverses and give
Franco a victory which will restore confi
dence and satisfy her wounded pride.
Tho danger to Napoleon is therefore not
.only fnmi the victorious columns so vigo
rously and rcsistlessly pursuing him, but
from the terrible indignation anil shame
which fills every Frenchman's brca-t.
JJveti')f,'tlirougli some military genius, or
by some unforeseen misfortune, the brilliant
combinations of Von Moltke should 'fail,
Napoleoi! ;yould yet have in Paris and
throughout' France aii enemy which would
not downjitdliiubiddlng. Tt is this new
complication which seems to us to be
fraught witli as much real danger to Napo
leon us Is even threatened by the splendid
and victorious armies now harassing and
driving him. These are days which de
velop mighty events, .and we do not know
at what hour we may send forth "ou the
streets an cxta, I'liuoNli'i.n giving the de
thronement of Napolen, the restoration of

The disasters to the French arms make
Napoleoh's situation -one of great peril.
His dynasty Is in danger, and unless some
great change speedily occurs he will un
questionably lose his throne.
Who will lie his sticees-or, Is the question
jiow of great Interest. We clip the follow

the New York Tribune. The present head
of the house, the Count of Paris, is now .",8
years of age. He lni traveled a great ileal

I lis supreme Idea Is, no doubt, to get into

tional Convention became a willing tool In
his hands. In tho meantime, if opportu
nity oilers, lie can run for Congress, as be
ing a Congressman would not deny him
tlie additional gratification of becoming a

Johnson would at once avail himself of the

left out of the race, he will prefer that some
less brilliant iignt ot ueinocrac.v snail suf

cans of tlie District can thus seo the im
portance of unity in the coming election,
and it is to be hoped that they will act up
on this knowledge by putting forward
their strongest man and healing all dissen
sions. Hut tho way in which Mr. John
son hopes to get Into the Senate, and tho
Helping bund which the lute Constitutional
Convention extended are next in order.
It has been, among Teniiessceans, a
matter of curiosity to know why tho .Leg
islature which assembles in October,- 1871,
should be elected in November of this year,
eleven months before their time of meet
ing. Tills was done for no other purpose
than to reopen the Senatorial question,
and give Andy one more chance to succeed
Senator Fowler. It is hoped by this change
to render null the election of Mr. Cooper,
who will not have been elected by the Leg
islature chosen next preceding the 4th of
March, the time of taking his seat, as is
required by the Constitution of the UnlteJ
States. This is a last, desperate plan, con
ceived to gratify the ambition of a man
who has no claim of preferment upon the
petiple. A convention, assembled ostensi
bly to frame a fundamental law for the
State, degrades Itself by lending a helping
hand in carrying out the plot, not for the
public good, but for the promotion of an
unscrupulous demagogue. The State is
cheated out of its representation in the
Senate, and the people are required to elect
Representatives a year before they take
their seats, all for the benefit of Andy
Johnson. Hut even if they should succeed
in " uuelectlng" Mr. Cooper, his chances
are still desperate. Conservative Demo
crats, with but twelve republicans, suc
ceeded in heating him in tlie present Leg
islature. The next one will probably bo
one-third Republicans. So His chances

of their faces perhaps, alas! forever for
their fathers were going to light the Prus
sians, going into the dreadful work where
the poor men die always ami tho kings arc

was particularly touching. A young wo
man with a child in her arms, whose hon
esty was attested by the humility of lu-r
dress, staggered from the throng gathered
about one of the companies that was jtt-t
moving to take their place in the cars.
Her eyes were swollen and red and filled
with tears. There never was a paler check
and a mouth and brow that told of greater
n-ony at a funeral. And close after her wan

that she must care for the poor crushed

This occasion is one that is unusually,
perhaps beyond example, dreadful. Neith
