THE WORKWOMEN'B PARTY.
The appeals of democrats to the work
ingmen of the country are not encourag
ing to their party. We see that a meeting
of the General Committee of the Work
ingmen’s Union of New York, held last
week, adopted an address attributing to
the democracy the hardships of the work
ingmen and favoring a union with repub
licans. There are other movements of the
same kind, going to show that working
men are thinking and preparing to act.
That party which favors the building up of
home manufactures, to give employment
to home labor and build up our home
markets, improving the common school
so that the poor man's child can be edu
cated as well as the rich man's is the party
to which the workingman is bound by in
terest. The workingmen of the country
never received so much for their labor as
now, never had more comfortable homes,
or were more independent. In old demo
cratic times a laborer was glad to work for
twenty-tive cents a day, and if his children
learned to read it was more by their own
exertions than from tire advantages of the
common schools. Now the laborer's chil
dren may receive a good education In all
branches of study necessary to tit them for
business, and in the cities and large towns
the common schools are as good as acade
mies. It is not merely the growth of the
idea that a man is a man, whether ho be
black or white, or works with a pickaxe or
a pen, but the stamping out of the old no
tion that manufactories would grow and
villages and business increase without any
assistance, that has had much to do with
the beueilts uud'prit ileges which laboring
men enjoy.
The republican party grew up upon the
principle that a man is a man, no matter
what his color or occupation, and that the
laborer should call no man master, but
own himself and have all he could earn.
Its competitor was the democratic party.
Toe republican parly has pursued a lib
eral policy for the encouragement of man
ufactures, railroads, schools, in order that
through the increase of these labor might
thrive and the country become prosperous.
During its existence nearly all our rail
roads have been constructed, and their
rapid extension is due to the aid afforded
them by the republican party. The demo
cratic party lias no objection to railroads,
but always has been found objecting to
necessary measures to build them. Jhe
same principle holds good in their ease as
to factories and education,
The republican party has favored the
laborer in regard to taxation, Hoth the
tariff and internal revenue tax havo been
so adjusted as to fall as much upon proper
ty as possible. The last Congress refused
to remove the income tax, although they
reduced and modified it, because it falls
upon the wealthy chiefly. Hut while re
taining the income tax and keeping up the
tax on spirituous liquors and luxuries, taxes
which the rich must pay, they regarded
the laborer, who uses and needs as much
tea, coffee, and sugar in the family as any
other class, and reduced the duties upon
those articles.
Throughout the farming districts of the
State of Maine there never was so much
prosperity as now. Farmers never were
so clear of debt, or had so much working
capital or money in bank or securities.
Everything they produce commands cash
and a good price. In democratic times
they had no market, no money, and were
ten times more embarrassed to pay their
taxes than in these times, and even with
the war debt upon their shoulders would
not go back to the aforesaid democratic
times on any account. Let them compare
prices themselves, compare comforts and
conveniences, education and general pros
perity, and see how greatly the result fa
vors the present. We don't ask them to
take our statement, but depend upon the
abundance of facts which they have in
their knowledge and possession.
Let the farmers and laborers of Maine
do as the workingmen of New York are.
doing—give their support to the republi
can party.
MR. PILLSBURY TROUBLED.
Mr. E. F. Fillsbury publishes in the Stan
dard au article of two columns over Ins
own signature in reply to certain questions
asked him in the Journal. The article was
presented to us for publication, but on ac
count of its length and curious character,
we declined to publish it. The history ot
Mr. Fillsbury during the war is written
with his own pen in other characters and
paragraphs than those presented in the
queer collection of clippings and comments
in the Standard. We wish from the bot
tom of our heart he were able to make out
a clear case of honest-hearted devotion to
the government, but, alas ! the labor and
pains which lie spends only show how dif
ficult the task is. When Mr. Fillsbury com
plains of us for catechizing a private citi
zen, he must remember that lie was Presi
dent of the Democratic State Convention,
and it was his acting ill that capacity which
led to our questions. How long is it since
the Standard claimed the right not only
to discuss the public acts of one of our citi
zens. but to dive down into private and
personal affairs? Had wc followed the
example of the Standard we should have
inquired what Mr. Fillsbury usually has
for breakfast, dinner and supper, and
whether he sleeps between sheets or blank
ets. or keeps a dog, instead of asking a
few mild and proper questions about bis
war record. The remark’s of the Standard
at the close of its article, upon the editors
of the Journal, are undoubtedly consider
ed by Mr. Fillsbury to be couched in the
highest style of journalism, and in accord
ance with the must dignified and honorable
idea of the editorial profession and frater
nity. That may be his opinion, but wo
object to being judged by such a depraved
standard. The manner in which we are
assailed is its best answer, and we leave
the public to judge who best deserves the
epithets that Mr. Fillsbury sees fit to use,
the editors of the Standard or those of the
Journal.
POLITICAL.
Hon. Lot M. Morrill anil Hon. James G.
lllaine will address the citizens of Gardi
ner, at Johnson Hall this (Friday) evening.
The Democracy of the Second Congres
sional District have nominated Alvah Black
of Paris as a candidate for Congress.
The New York Commercial Advertiser
recommends ex-Govtrnor Morgan of that
Suite for the ministry to England.
The Democracy of Ohio opened their
campaign in Columbus on Thursday last.
Senator Thurman presided over a meeting
composed of fifty-seven persons, and Alex.
Delmar made a dreary statistical and
financial speech to them.
The True Georgian says that Gen. Grant
will be re-elected to the White House in
1872 by a larger majority than ho received
in 18<I8. He is the right roan in the right
place, and the South will put out her own
eyes should she fail to give him her entire
electoral vote in ‘.he coming Presidential
contest.
The Richmond Enquirer is resolved to
force the Democratic name upon the Con
servative party ol Virginia,while the Whig,
the old anti-Deinocratio organ, insists up
on “Conservative.” The State Journal,
(Republican,) commenting on the dispute,
says:—“The whole thing turns on the
Northern elections this fall. If the Re
publicans hold their own there, then will
the Conservatives in the South seek Re
publicanism ; but if the Democracy make
telling gains, then the Enquirer will stand
at the head of the heap in this section, and
the old Democratic leaders will take heart
and come boldly out and turn the present
leaders out of their usurped places.”
There is a strong movement in Pennsyl
vania in favor of minority representa
tion.
The “maimedsoldier” who pours out his
complaint in the Standard is probably one
of the Kinglield militia. Of course he will
vote for General Roberts, if he did not he
would fail to be true to the memories of
Kinglield. He will be worse “maimed”
after election than he is now.
Gen. MeClcllan’t income is now larger than
than that of Prisfident Grant. L'jcckaiitjt.

THE ARMIES AND THEIR INITIAL
MOVEMENTS.
Tlie best account which we have seen of
the French and Prussian Armies and the
initial movements of the campaign in pro
gress, is the following from the corre
spondence of the. New York Evening Post.
It is necessary to understand the follow
ing facts, in order to have an intelligent
idea of events as they transpire :
‘■For a clearer view of the recent opera
tions I will give you the positions ami num
bers of tile two armies as they were on the 3d
of August, taking the held forces of the,
French at the estimated 850,000 or 400,000
and the Germans at 500,000 or 000,000. The
supposition is that these numbers are stated
too iow on both sides. The French occupied
offensive positions close tip to the German^
borders. The French centre, with the head- i
quarters at Metz, under the command of Mar
shal Bnznine, the commander of the Third
army corps, was composed of the Second
army corps, under Frossard. (headquarters
St. Avoid.) the Fifth army corps, under,
Failly. (headquarters Bitche,) and the Sixth
array corps, the Imperial Guard, (headquar
ters Nancy.) The left wing was composed of
the Fourth army corps, under l’Adtnirnult,
(lieadqarters Thionville.) The right wing
was the First army corps, under MacMahon,
(headquarters Strasburg.) The reserve army,
the Seventh army corps, under Canrobert.
was in Chalons. The six army corps (with
out reserves) consisted of 23 infantry and 7
cavalry divisions, in round numbers. 330.000
men. The reserve army numbered 50,000.
The French line extended from Sicrk. nort h
cast of Thionville on the Moselle, over St.
Avoid, Saargemund, Bitche, as tar as Weis
senburg, there resting on the Rhine; while
MacMahon, in order to protect the upper
Rhine, was concentrated at Strasburg, he de
tached the division of Douny northward in
order to maintain his connection with the
great French army.
Opposed to these the Germans were divided
into three great armies, the northern one, the
first, under General von Steinmetz (Herwartli
von Bittenfeld had the nominal command),
posted on the line Cologne-Coblentz-Maycnce,
on the left hank of the Rhine, the troops
pushed westward. It consists of the Seventli
and Eighth arinv corps, and numbers over a
hundred thousand men.
The second army, the German centre, un
der l’rinee Frederick Carl, stood on the left
hank of the Rhine, between Mayence and
Mannheim, with a single army corps towards
Rhenish Prussia and the Palatinate, close up
to the French border. It consists of six army
corps. The south or third army, under the
Crown Prince of Prussia, consisted of the
third and fourth Prussian, the Baden and
Wurteniberg army corps, and the Hessian
division—one hundred and fitly to two hun
dred thousand men. The German lines ex
tended from Treves to Speyer, that is, from
the upper course of the Moselle to the upper
Rhine,' their front being the line of the river
Saar, the great hulk of the German army
massed in the square made hy the Saar,
Moselle and Rhine, as see on the map. The
French position possessed great advantages
over the German. They were in full railroad
communication from the centre, Metz, through
Saargemund, Bitche, Hagenau, and the
second line Nancy, Thionville and Stras
burg; while on the German side railroad
connection from Coblentz to Treves was
broken, and the French border had to be
reached from Coblentz by way of Bingen,
and from Mayence over Worms, Neustadt.
I.andau. At Ncwstadt the road branches off
to Kaiserslauten and joins the Rhine-Xape
road atNeunkirch. so that here the connec
tion along the front of the German army was
uiven.
A noticeable fact in the position of the Ger
man line was the proximity of the centre to
the left wing, anil the apparently isolated
position of General von Steintnetz’s first and
weakest army ; and the Prussian loss of Saar
brucken was. it is now thought, only an at
tempt to draw the French armies between the
two northen German ones, and since it could
not be seen whether the French would make
the great attack from Alsace or Lothringia.
the two principal armies of the Germans
were placed in such a way as to provide lor
either event. The French were expected to
move on the 6th to the 8th of August, but did
not advance beyond the lines of Saarbrucken.
The Germans then appear to have quickly
decided for the aggressive. First of all it
was necessary to makethe corps of McMahon
undangerous, since if the Germans entered
France from northeast to southwest this corps
would have been able to fall upon the left
German ilank. This mission fell to the Crown
Prince’s army, with what result is known.
Division Douay of McMahon’s corps was at
Weissenburg, some ten thousand men, against
whom the Crown Prince employed, on the 4th
about fifty thousand of his best troops.
Though well defended the victory was gained
at considerable loss.
It is still a mystery why McMahon did not
hurry troops up to Douay’s aid, since Stras
burg is only about thirty miles distant, and
the railroad communication was perfect.
Seeing Weissenburg lost, McMahon appears
to have left Strashurg in all haste northwards,
in order to join the main French army, but
before he could accomplish his design the
Crown Prince’s army attacked hint near
Woertli, and though supported by troops from
the main army, he was so thoroughly beaten
that of his entire army corps of from fifty to
sixty thousand men, he has since been able
only to gather together some eighteen thou
sand I On the same day, and after the Crown
Prince had proved his ability to keep McMa
hon in check, on the 4th Steinmetz received
orders to advance on Saarbrucken. and his
victory was accomplished nearly at the same
moment as that of the Crown Prince at Wurth.
The mission of the second army was evi
dently to advance upon Saargemund, in order
to break through the French centre; hut
Friedrich Carl's movements were too late,
and he was unable to come up with the ene
my. On the evening of the 6th of August,
the French had left their entire border line,
and were retreating in all directions, followed
by the Prussian cavalry. As I write, the French
are forming behind the Moselle, on the line of
Thionville, Metz and Nancy, and the Prus
sian advance is within ten miles of Metz.
Alsace and German Lothringia are now near
ly cleared from the French. Some seven
thousand men occupy Strashurg.
Over ten thousand French have been made
prisoners, and immense stocks of provisions,
guns, baggage, rifies, have fallen into the
hands of the Germans. Three days ago
Steinmetz had crossed the Nied, on the road
to Metz, Friedrich Carl’s army is marching
along the Saar, and the Crown Prince’s army
has already passed the upper Saar. Of course
it is all over with the French invasion of Ger
many now.
WAR SPLINTERS.
A correspondent says: “What has been
said about the frightful effect of the chas
sepot bullet does not seem to have been
exaggerated, for many of the wounds on
the Prussian bodies were horrible to look
at. I noticed one man whose whole face
was one big wound, a ball having struck
him just under the eye and made a hole
one might have put one’s list into.”
The discipline of the French army is
unfavorably mentioned. One writer in
speaking of the Zouaves says: “When
these marched out of Strasbourg they
were more like an armed mob than an or
ganized milliary corps. There were hard
ly two men of them dressed alike. Some
had on their red cloth breeches, some
their brown linen ditto f some had white
gaiters, some red, some black. As to
their march, the only thing I can compare
it to is the English House of Commons
when the members are summoned to hear
the Queen's speech read in the House of
Lords. Were you ever present on that
occasion ? If so you can hardly have for
gotten the undignified shuffling rush of
members that takes place, every one doing
his best to get to the front. Well, the
march of the Zouaves is very much the
same.”
Besides being inferior in discipline it
is now understood that the French have
had to fight against superior forces. At
Woerth McMahon had but 40,000 effect
ive bayonets, while the Pru.-sain force
was 160,000. Not very good generalship
to fight at such a disadvantage.
A subject for conscription writes: “This
afternoon the town crier went through the
village with his drum, and read a long
proclamation informing the happy French
people that every one up to 46 was ex
pected and indeed bound to go and be a
soldier. 1 don't know exactly what will
become of me, but when they claim me 1
must go. It is not pleasant, certainly;
but then when the country is in danger,
and when we have an opportunity of
walking in the footsteps of our “fathers"
of 1792, and of shouting la Marseillaise as
we go, we ought to be pleased. It must
not be forgotten, however, that those
fathers which we arc told are ours, walk
ed cn sabots—Lc bataillon ilc la Moselle cn
sabots; you recollect—under Iloche, I be
lieve. However, let mo tell you one
thing, and that is that the Frenchman who
a month ago said they should be at Berlin
in a fortnight, in fact all Frenchmen are
now glad to say, ‘We are greatly in want
of a stupendous victory to set us tip.’ ”
GENERAL NEWS.
Jenny Lind and Florence Nightingale are
among the London committee for the relief
of the sick and wounded in the Franco-Prus
sian war.
Three things principally determine the
quality of a man—the leading object which he
proposes to himself in life, the manner in
which he sets about accomplishing it, and the
effect which success or failure has upon
him.
There has been launched at Wilmington,
Del., an iron side-wheel steamer, the Wy
anoke, 25 hundred tons burthen, and with
sixty state-rooms, which is the largest iron
merchant ship ever built in this country.
Col. John Hay has arrived, and has resign
ed the office of the Secretary of Legation at
Madrid. The Spanish Government at the
time of his departure had not assented to the
proposition of this Government fora commis

tions growing out of the complications in
Cuba.
“What do you tlijnk of our rifles?” said the
King of Prussia to Gen. Bourbaki, of the
French Zouaves, when he was in Berlin, after
the war of 18G6. “Well,” he replied. It will
depend on the men who are before them.”
Within the last few years the progress of
religious enlightenment throughout the East
has been very great. Forty years ago a com
plete copy of the Old Testament could not be
found in Jerusalem. At the present time
there are twenty-four Protestant schools in
Palestine, in which one thousand children
are taught the Bible.
