THE EUROPEAN WAR.
Resources ot Frances and Prussia.
A general European War seems
row to )o almost inevitable.
Prance nnd Prupsia havo already
commenced hostilities against each
other, and the telegraph reports aro
full of rumors that the other ka
lians are choosing the side which
they will take. What kind of a dt
visioo this choosing will make of
the Nations of Europe, it is impos
sible to conjecture, as the telegrams
are contradictory. However, ehoulj

of the two Nations, will be interest
NAPOLEON AND HIS CHASSEPOTS—POPULATION

595,343 lived in towns, and 26,471,816
in the rural districts. As regarded na
tionality, 635,435 were resident for
eigners, the remainder native French
men, The difference of language am
ong the natives of France has been the
subject of official census. It is estima
ted that about 1,2000,000 of the popu
lation (Alsace and Loraine) speak Ger"
man as their native tongue, 200,000
Flemish, 1,SOO,000 Walloon; 1,100,000
Breton. In iheir religious faiths the

The German military organization
is complete, and, according to a state
ment in the Prussian Military Gazetts,
"a million soldiers can at any moment
be placed under arms by a single tele
gram from Berlin." The Prussian
troops, the same authority adds, con
sist of 325 battalions of infantry, 268
squadrons of cavalry, 1 1 regiments ol
artillery, with 1,146 guns, and 12 bat
talions of engineers, making in all
4! 0,000 soldiers. To these should be
added the Federal contingents of Sax
ony, Brunswick, Mecklenburg-rtrelitz,
and LI esse Darmstadt, in all 53,000
men. But this force of 463,000 only
represents the standing army of North.
Germany. In case of emergency Prus
sia can also command the services of
the troops of Baden, Wurtcmburg and
Bavaria, and immediately order a re-
serve, consisting of 143,000 men. An
additional force of 200,000 men is at her
disposal for the occupation of towns and
garrisons. Every Prussian subject is
enrolled as a soldier as soon as he has
completed his twentieth year, lie
serves, unless exempted, three years
in the regular army, four in the re
serve, and at the end of his term en
ters the Landwehr or militia for nine
years. Leaving the Landwehr he is
finally enrolled in the Lansturm until
he is fifty years of age.
The Commander-in-Chief of the ar
my and navy is the King. The chief of
staff is General de Moltke. The regu
ular army is divided into eleven corps
or divisions, with the following com

The commander of the corps of the
Guard is the Prince Augustus, of Wur
teinberg. There are twenty-nine fort
resses in the Kingdom, of which five
are of the first rank.
Count Von Bisniark has been able
to assert that the Prussian navy is now
second to none in the Baltic sea. Since
IS60, vessel after yessel has been rap
idly launched, - until Prussia, which a
few years ago was really contemptible
on the sea, has now become a most for
midable navy power. According to the
latest returns, the fleet of Prussia is
composed as follows :
Frigates and corvettes, 9
l acht, J
raddle corvettes, 3
Sailing vessels, 59
Total, 99 637
The steam flef tis being increased as
rapidlv as human efforts will admitof.
The vessels in commission are manned
by 5,012 sailors, 737 engineers, 370 car
penters and mechanics, 192 warrant of
ficers, and 255 officers. Besides this
there is a reserve of 4.156 men, which
can be called upon at any time, and a
second reserve, called Scawehr, which
nets only in time of war, and may be
translated sea militia.

HON. S. COX ON THE AIMS
OF THE DEMOCRACY,
At the Fourth ot July celebraton
in New York by tho Tammany
Society, the lion. fc, S Cox thus
expressed the demands and the
aims ot tho Democracy in this
The Democracy demand peace
among the estates, order among tho
people, and eeunoinj- iu tho admin
istration. tSccuro liieso. and credit
lifts iis head proudly! lioudiiolder,
plowholdcr, taxpayer and tax
gatherer all rc:civi justice. Cur
rency becomes as gooa us coin; pub
lic credit restores prosperity and
gold and silver. No ono then can
traliic in uur credit lor private gain.
As govenwr Seymour om-o - baid:
'Democratic faith Seeks to level up.
I means that coin shall ring again
on the counters of .ur tradesmen,
glitter in the p. dm of labor and
gladden the heart ot the wounded
soldier." Honor, peace and welfare
these will come with the end ot
proscription against tho European
emigrant and the Southern citizen.
Our grass grojvn ship yards will
again echo to the bound ol labor.
Our docks will be crowded with
cargoes from the iuithcstEtst and
West. Bribery, iraud scheming,
bounties, etc., will become obolele
as they were uiiKiiown under
Democratic rulo. The millions ot
acres ol our domain will not be.
granted to grasping monopolies.
The Union in its spirit, aa in its
form, will bo restored. Na power
will bo usurped which belongs to
the States, and no land monopoli
zed which belongs to the people.
To bring about such an era is the
Democratic aim. To bring about
such changes we must cling to the
ancient altars. Let us adjure each
other not merely to speak, but to
do well for tho Republic. History
tells us of an oath which rescued
from tyranny tho mountain Re
public of Europe Switzerland!
Last year I visited that historic
spot, where in low tones and earn
est Jiand pressures, the- confed
erates of Swiss freedom mot to
consecrate themselves to their
work. It was on the Promontory
of Grutli amid tho majestic scen
ery of that land were "grand moun
tains mirror themselves in splendid
lakes. We swear, exclaimed Furst
Slouffacher and Melchthal exten
ding their arms wo swear in the
presence of God to live or die for
our fellow-countrymen; to unier-
iah.o anu sustain ail in common,
neither to suffer injustice, nor to
1 . i . -
commit injury; to respect rights of
property, to do no violence to the
imperial bailiffs, but to put an end
to their tyranny. Tradition says
that three springs gushed from the
ground benoath their feet, and they
flow on to this day, symbolic of
puro and perlect freedom. Well
might such a miraclo follow an
oain so iun oi gentleness ana jus
tice. Let us renew at this altar of
St. Tammany, on this nalal day of
freedom, .an oath to omit no exers
tion by deed or word until the
element spirit and beautiful form
oi our constitutional treedom is
restored to the Republic, in that
simple splendor and unassuming
pomp which it wore when our
Columbian Order was born.
There is ono uniform peculiarity
of all tho scallawnr and carpet-bag
government instituted at tho South,
and that is they v steal ! Wo
have heretofore published statistics
as to South Carolina, Florida, Lou
isiana, and other States, and now
comes .Tsorth Carolina, with its ex
hibit of Radical plundering. The
cost of carrying on the State gov
ernment for ono year of Worth's
conservative administration, 1866
and 1867, wa3 5364,679 51 ; while
that of one year of Holden's rulo,
1868 and 1S69, wa 746,860 40
showing that Holden spent in one
year S3S2 180 46 more than was
spent by Worth the year before.
Tho Conservative Legislature of
Ifcbb and lbbi had only thirteen
men to wait npon it. The Radical
Legislature requires thirty-six.
The total expenses of the General
Assembly of 1866 and 1867 were
5118.392 77 ; those of the General
Assembly for 1868 and 1863 were
227,392 56. These figures are not
gotten up by mere guess-work for
an election document, but are tak
en from the Radical State Auditor's
Napoleon's Estimate of Jesus
Napoleon, when at St. Helena,
asked Count Montholom, '-Can you
tell mo who Jesus Christ was i"
The question was declined, and Na
poleon proceeded, "Well, then, I
will tell you. Alexander, Casar,
Charlemange, and myself, havo
founded great empires ; but upon
what did thesoeieations of our ge
nius depend ? Upon force , Jesus
alone founded His empire on love,
and to this very day millions would
die for him.
I think I understand some things
of human nature, and I tell you all
these were men, and I am a man ;
none else is like him ; Jesus Christ
was more than a man ; I have in
spired multitudes with such an en
thusiastic devotion that they would
have died for me, but to do this
it was ncccs9arv that I should ho
visibly present, 'with the electric m-
Ihieil'ie Of mv looks, of mv wnrda
of my voice. When I saw men and
ppoKe to them, 1 lighted up the
flame of self-devotion in their
hearts ; Christ has alone succeeded
in raising the mind of man toward
the Unseen, that it becomes insen
sible to the barriers of time and
space. Across a chasm of eighteen
hundred years, Jesus Christ makes
a demand which is beyond all oth
ers diflicnlt to satisfy ; He asks for
that which a philosopher mar often
seek in vain at the hands of his
friends or a father of his children,
or a bride of her spouse, or "a man
of his brother. He asks for the hu
man heart. He will have it entire
ly to Himself. He demands it un
conditionally, and forthwith. His
demand is granted. Wonderful !
In dofiancA or time und nnace. the
soul of man, with all its powers and
faculties, becomes an annexation to
tho Empire of Christ. All who sin
cerely neiieve in Jiim experience
that remarkable supernatural love
oward him. This ' phenomena is
unaccountablo it is altogether be
yond tho Ff-ope of man's creative
powers. Time, tho great destroy
er, is powerless to extinguish this
sacred flamo ; time can neither ex
haust its strenjth nor pnt a limit to
its range. I his is it which strikes
me most. 1 havo often thought of
it. This it is which proves to mc
quite convincingly the Divinity of
