The triplet of daughters that were

It is one of the peculiarities of tho '

Serman to love Its imtitutions.rul to

freedom, "The Frenchman loves Lib-

loves her as his wife, and the German
as his grandmother," might le exten

ng, "wo have Iron defeated this
morning, men taking out ins watcn
and looking at it a monic'nt, he said :

have just time for a splendid victory
before night.". At once he rearranged
his forces, and, forming a new lino of
battle, he snatched victory from the
very jaws of disaster, and slept a con
queror on the hard-fought field. Let
us riso and he doing ; let the future
make amends for the past, and as the
cloud of tho coming days overshadows
us, may we not be afraid, but only lis

of the resources of the west.
