-: England and Eusda.
From the Nashville American.
It can hardly be conceived that
England will deliberately rush Into a
war with Russia, when her military
force is so small that of trained sol
diers she cannot raise more than 75,000
for actual service abroad. It is true
that England has a large population
from which to draw recruits, but it
must : be remembered that sho has
never had anything like the continen
tal military system. She has always
relied, outside of a comparatively
small regular army, upon volunteers.
She has had neither the standing army
of France nor trained her entire popu
lation to arms and discipline like Rus
sia. England in entering upon a great
war with a nation or soiaiers, trainea
to obedience, with an army skeleton
of officers, equal to a million of men,
is in the position the United States oc
cupied in 1861, with a great military
capacity, but with a mere nucleus of
of an army, and compelled to educate
aud tram, in the school or actual war,
both officers and soldiers. It is time
that England had a larger army, more
officers ana greater supplies or an
kinds. She far surpasses the United
States of 18Cl in ordinance and stores
and ammunition. But when wecom-
pare the United States with the Con
federacy, and England with Russia,
the rami hpnomc na.r;dlfl. The (Ion-
federates had at tho time an ad van-J
tagein defending their own territory
and in being better able to resist ihau
the United States to attack. England
with a standing army, all counted of
about 130,000 men, is about to attack
a nation with almost a million of men
under arms, trained in war and or
ganized. Out of this 130,000 men
England will find it difficult to bring
at once 100,000 into the field. The
government which shows such a wil
lingness to leap into war, with such a
force, must bo pretty well assured of
support from abroad. Lord Beacons
field must have knowledge of the pol
icy of Austria and t ranee which has
not yet been exposed to the rest of the
world. He must either know that he
can rely upon one or both, or he must
be assured that the inexorable logic of
events, and of national policy, will
force oue or both to his assistance.
While England Is preparing for
war and training her raw recruits,
gathering up her yeomanry ami her
lower classes into regiments, she is in
flicting upon Russia a punishment, in
the strain she is enduring, almost
equal to the exhausting efforts of ac
tual war. The drain upon the scanty,
resources of Russia to maintain her
vast armies is terribly exhausting.
Her losses of men by disease, her ex-
Eeuditures of money, constitute for
er a state of actual war, while Eng
land can continue preparations indefi
nitely, drill her soldiers at a cost
small compared with that inflicted on
Russia. Russia cannot, even when
war is declared, come to England.
Tho latter can go to her when and
where she pleases. With her large
fleet she can protect her own coaet
and that of her colonies from any se
rious loss. Russia has no navy of any
consequence. If England can avoid
torpedo attacks, she can hold the Sea
of Marmora and the Bosporus, with
out tho necessity of maintaining any
army in Turkey. She can compel
Russia indefinitely to occupy the un
healthy plains of Turkey, and to keep
up the enormous drain on her resour
ces, and thus inflict the exhaustion of
war without sharing it herself, and
this can be nrolontred indefinitely, or
at least until this state of suspense has
compelled the interference of other
Powers aud their alignment upon one
side or the other.
But, while this is goin on. Russia
can foment disturbance in- India, and,
ir tuero is anything m the utea or in
vasion in that quarter or Incitement
of the natives to revolt, Russia can
use that advantage. We "are not in
clined to believe that Russia can ac
complish anything in the way of in
vasion of India. The chief danger
there is In revolt of the natives. Al
together, it must be admitted that
England has at present a great advan
tage in tne injury she can inniet ny
simply compelling Russia to maintain
her great armies, but, as for actual
war, she must count upon alliance on

St. Petersburg, March 30. The
Journal de St.-PetersbHrg publishes an
article, believed to be semi-official, on
England's attitude. Referring to
Lord Beaconfield's speech in the
House of Lords, Thursday, tho article
says: "The balance of power in tho
I Mediterranean is only threatened bv
the presence of the British fleet in the
sea of Marmora, and. England's pos
session of Gibraltar and Malta." The
article continues as follows: "The cell
ing out of tlie reserves, notwithstand
ing the statement that it does not
imply war, is another step in the
path of provocation." Russia has ful
filled all her promises. She did not
insert in the treaty ot San Stefano a
I single stipulation clashing with tho in-
ing them by its reservations. Russia
is conscious of having neglected noth
ing which, could secure to the East an
era of prosperity, and to Europe long
years of peace. She will deeply de
plore the aberrations which may
counteract her pacific work, but at the
same time she will await, arms in
hand, any attempt to , dispute the
fruits of her sacrifices, which no threats
will induce her to relinquish."
ENGLAND PREPARED TO MEET THE IS
SUE. London, March SO. Correspond
ents of the provincial journals say the
belief is current that some step for safe
guarding of the Britisn interests, like
the entry of the fleet in tlie Black Sea,
or the occupation of Gailipoli, has
been determined upon.

EsTirai. $ tne Eeecher Scandal.
New York Special to the Cincinnati En
quirer. The Beecber scandal revives a bit. It
is given on what is said to be trust
worthy authority, that Theodore Til
ton is to be reunited to his wife and
take herto Europe for a few years of
pence. "TEis story is that Tilton has
long been trying to effect a reconcilia
tion with his wife, and that the child
ren joined their entreaties to his. At
first Mrs. Til ton refused to have any
thing to do with him, but finally con

make a speech in Brookl3'n Academy
on Tilton's case, tie says that tseecn

contemptible as Tilton innocent. He
ssys that Tilton only paid out $500

paid out 1,000 dollars for witnesses

laprcving Water Courses.
The navigation of Duck river to
Centrevilie suggests the possibilities of
cheap water transportation in Ten
nessee. We are just beginning to re
alize in this country the necessity for
cheap transportation, while we have
as yet scarcely thought seriously of
utilizing our smaller streams for slack
water navigation. There are great
schemes for canal connections be
tween the West and the Atlantic: but
the most pressing necessity is for a
cheap form of development of com
munities loading up to tho grander
schemes. In a general way we have
netted the country over with railways,
and find something still lacking. The
work done in that respect Is not was
ted, but it is not sufficient. We need
more local communication, cheap
roads, the use of all our water courses.

Courses are most used the railroads are

properly improved, and used to their
full capacity, with every county

our roads would do ten times the bus
iness theyito now. The State would
support five' times its present popula
tion. This system is already begun.
Rapid progress has been made, all
things considered, in improving the
Tennessee and Cumberland. Narrow
gauge railways are growing up gradu
ally, iurnishing local transportation,
ana everywhere popular.
Attention is called bv this naviga
tion of the Duck to our smaller
streams. If the Duck is profitably
navigable to any extent, as it is, by
proper improvement it may be made
a valuable highway, contributing
largely to the local development of
counties which have been up to this
time out ot tne wona.
Much as nas been done in the way
of experiments in transportation, we
are yet in the infantile period of its
growth. The day is not far distant
when great lines of rail will not be the
exclusive reliance of the country. The
system is growing gradually, and we
are returning to a sense of the Impor
tance of our water transportation, ac
quiring a knowledge of the impor
tance of cheap local roads supporting
the main system. Gradually the sys
