unapproved features in underwriting; conducting all
the company's affairs with the strictest economy and
adopting only those measures prorcd by experience to
be the wisest, the directors of the company hare suc

second to no other similar organization in tbecountry.
Yet, great as is tbe degree of caution manifested in

conducted in a manner fully in unison with tbe pro
gressive spirit of the ace. As regards its dealings
with policy holders, few companies are more liberal

Tbo English steamer Abyssinia, which arrived
at 'New Tort In the latter paricf December
last, bronght, amongtt other papers relative to
.the trar, a few numbers of a Paris Gazette called
the Depecht-Hallon. They arojfull 'o'ttate'resitag
infbrmation nbont the condition of tae'besiegea
capital, and no doubt will become' quite Talaab'le
to the fntare compilers of the history of the
Franco-German contest, as they will "forcibly, by
their rery title,- call attention' to the wonderful
time when France had no other than aerial com'
tnnnieation with the rest of France r when Paris
was sending over the headsof the disappointed
besiegers not only written messages" of hope, bnt
also Intrepid chiefs, undaunted leaderswboso
inSnence inspired tbe'inbabitanls'of the remotest
provinces with a desire to imitate' the noble exam
pie set them by their heroic1 capital. ' These news
papers were carried to Belgium by the balloon'
Archimedes, which, starting from Paris on the
22d of November, at 12 e. x., alighted in tbe
neighborhood of Anvers at 7 o'clock a. x. In
the boat there were three gentlemen, intruded

"MiLiTAiir Nkws Not, 20. The Govern'
ment of tbe National Defense has caused to be
placarded in Paris the news of the advantage
gained by the army of the Loiro over tbe troops
that were occupying Orleans.
To the inhabitants and defenders of Paris
"My dear fellow citizens, it Is with u nspe.it.
able joy that I bring to your knowledge tbe good
news that you are going to read. Thanks to tbe
valor of our soldiers, fortune comes back to

"The Minister of the Interior, ad interim.
"The circle by which wo are surrounded gets
larger, slowly it Is true, but yet it is larger. In
front of Moulin Saquet, we are establishing
line of defense, starting from Port-a-l'Anglais, on
the river side, and reaching to other strong works
in front of Yillejuii ; numerous squads of men
work at it night and day, under tbe protection of
tbe artillejy fire of our forts, of a. gun-boat an
chored in the Seine, and of columns of reserve.
On that side, onr scouts have rcconnoitered ns
for as tbe Cemetery of Clioisy, where tbe Prus
sians wero said to have erected heavy batteries,
but they were much surprised to find there
nothing bnt two steel field pieces. On the right
bank, our line of defense is extended up to Cro
teil, whero redoubts and covered trenches, ac
cessible from one to the other, havo been
" In other respects, .tho fortifications of Paris
are becoming daily more formidable. Ono of our
bastions has been armed with ten naval pieces,
directed against Chatillon.-so thai whatever may
be the power of the Prussian batteries in tbe
latter position, they will be easily silenced by the
convergent fire of our forts, and of this portion
of tbe ramparts. Our scouts are exploring tbe
neighborhood of Bagneux, and keep tbe Prus
sian outposts constantly on the alert. Yester
day, about 3 o'clock, a column of tbe enemy ap
peared from behind a rise of ground, and would
have done us much harm had it not been for the
effective aid of the forts of Issy and Montrouge,
which discharged a volley of artillery with such
accuracy that tbe Prussians hastily relreitud.
Those additional fortifications erected outside
of the walls of Paris with tbe view of making a
second inclosnro, now form a very respectable
line of defense. Above the tunnel oi Iyry, there
has been built up a redoubt commanding the
valley of tbe Seine, and from which it is quite
possible to send side-shots on tbe line of circum
vallation as far as Nicolai. "Every day, we read
accounts of the Prussian works, accounts, in
most cases, of an exaggerated nature. Thus it
has been said and printed that tbe great redoubt
of Cbatillon, confronting our forts, bad one side
lined with 132 pieces of cannon. This report is
so far incorrect that oho side of the redoubt
that facing our forts Issy and Tanves, bos but
28 guns ; and the side opposite the H antes
Bruyere3 is armed with tbe same number, making
a total of .56 pieces only. Tbe redoubt of Cbatil
lon is unquestionably well planned and well built,
but its efficiency is almost neutralized by tbe
series of outworks which wo have established In
froni of Yillejuif, and the improvements we have
mide in tbo armament of the above-named two
forts. It is evidently to these works, lately
erected by U3, that wo must attributo tho hesita
tion of the Prussians, who are now unable to
carry out, on that side, tbe attack they had plan
ned against it.
Ancs)tio.( asd TVab Mateciai. There
are, at this moment in Paris, fire great workshops
for the manufacture of cartridges, in which about
6,000 women are actively employed. The number
of cartridges turned out in one day is 800,000.
" Yesterday, at 3 o'clock, at one of the bas
tions of la porto d'Autcuil, General Trochu and
his Staff were present at some experiments made
with the view of transforming shell-guns of the
old system info breech-loaders. The latter worked
admirably, and havo a range of 8,000 metres.
The manufacture of the Sotbey-cannon is
pursued with the most feverish activity in tbe
foundries pf Paris. These new pieces are said to
be superior lo tbe Prussian guns, as they can be
fired more rapidly, at a greater range, aad with
more accuracy. Thay throw shot of 14 potrecis?

CARLYLE ON THE WAR.
A REMARKABLE LETTER.
Tlic London Timet of tbe 18th, received hero by
the China, contains Thomas Carlyle's letter on the
war, which has been alluded to In a cable despatch.
Mr. Carljle, In bis characteristic ind trenchant style,
maintains that Prussia Is right In demanding tbe ces
sion of Alsacq and Lorraine, and relates historical
precedents furnished by France herself. Tie adds.
"No nation ever had so bad a neighbor as Oer
many Las bad in France for the last four hundred
years; bad In al manner of wave; Insolent, rapa
cious, insatiable, unappeasable, continually aggres
sive. "And now, furthermore, In all history there Is no
insolent, unjust neighbor that ever got so complete,
Instantaneous and. ignominious a smashing down as
France bas now got from Germany. Germany, after
four hundred years of Illnsagc, asd generally of III
fortune, from that neighbor, bas had at last tbe great
happiness to see Its enemy fairly down in this man
ner; and Germany, I do clearly believe, would be a
foolish nation not to think of raising up some secure
boundary-fence between herself and such a neigh
bor now that she bas the chance
"There Is no law of nature that I know of, no
Heaven's act of Parliament, whereby France, alone
of terrestrial being:, shall not .restore any portion of
her plundered goods when the owners they were
wrenched from have an opportunity upon them. To
nobody, except to France herself for tbe moment,
can It be credible that there is such a law of nature.
Alsace and Lorraloe.were not got, either, of them, In
so divine a manner as to render that a probability.
The cunning ot Richelieu, tbe grandiose long-sword
orixinis .A.1V., incsc are tbe only titles oi France to
those German countries. Richelieu screwed them
loose (and, by happy accident, there was aTnrennr,
as General), got screwed along with tbein ; Turenne,
I think, was mainly German by blood and temper,
bad not Francis I. egged on his ancestor, the little
Duke of Bouillon, In tbe way we saw, and gradually
made him French) ; Louis dc Grand, with his Turen
ne as supreme ol modern generals, mansged the rest
of the operation, except, indeed, I should say, the
burning of the Palatinate, from Heidelberg palace
steadily downwards, into black ruin; which Tu
renne would not do sufficiently, and which Louis
had to get done by another. There was also a good
deal of extortionate law practice, what we may fair
ly call violently sharp attorneyism, put In use. The
great Loni's "CTomorescZJJntn07i," Metz Chamber,
Brissac Chamber, were once of high Infamy, and
much complained of, here in England, and every,
where else beyond the Rhine. Tbe Grand Louis, ex
cept by sublime gesture, Ironically polite, made no
answer. He styled himself on bis very coins (ecu of
1807, say the medalists), Exctltut viper omna Gentet
Dominut, but it Is certain attorneyism of tbe worst
soil was one pf his instruments In this conquest of
Alsace. Nay, aa to 8trasburg, It was not even at
torneyism, mncb less a long-sword, that did the
feat; It was a housebreaker's janmy on the part of
the Grand Monarche. 8lrasburg,was got In time of
profound peace by bribing of the magistrates to do
treason, on his part, and admit bis garrison one
Tbe French complain dreadfully , of threatened
'loss of honor;' and lamentable bystanders plead
earnestly, 'Don't dishonor France; leave poor
France's honor right.' But will It saro tbe honor
of Fraoce to refute paring for tbe glass she bas vol
untarily broken In her neighbors windows t Tbe
nltack upon the windows was her dishonor. Sig
nally disgraceful to any nation was her late assault
on Germany; equally signal has been the Ignominy
of Its cxecnlion on the part of France. Tbe honor
of France cau be tared only by the deep repentance
of France, and by tbe serloun determination never
to do so again to do the reverse of so forever
henceforth. In that way may the honor pf France
agsln gradually brtgbtennto tbo- hcigbtb of Its old
splendor, far beyond, the. Firat Napoleonic, much
more the Third, or any recent tort, and offer again
to our voluntary love and grateful estimation all tbe
fine and graceful qualities Nature had implanted In
tbe French. For the present I mutt say, Fraoce
looks more and more dclcrlous, miserable, blama-
bie. pitiable, -and even contemptible. She refutes to
see the facts that are lying palpable before her face,
and tbo penalties she has bronght upon herself. A

Alts, one doe understand that France made her
Great Revolution; uttered her tremendous doom's
voice against a world of human aharas, proclaiming;
as with tho great Last Trumpet, that shams, should,
be no more. I often call that a celestial Infernal
phenomenon the most memorable In our world for
a thousand years; on the whole, alranacendast re
volt tgtlust tbe Devil and his works (since sham
are all and sundry of the devil, and poUqnons and
unendurable to man). For that we atliuHnltely lovo
and honor France. And truly alt nations are now
busy enough copying France in regard to that I
From side to side of the civilized world there is, In
a manner, nothing noticeable but the whole world
In deep and dismally chaotic Insurrection against
shams, determination to have done with sbara cpuis
qn'Ucoutt. Indispensable that battle, however ugly.
We done, we may say to allthat ; for it Is the pre
liminary to every thing; but, alas, 'all that I not yet
victory; it Is but half the battle, sad the aich eas
ier lalC The indennltely harder. half, which la the.
equally or tbe still more Indispensable, is thai of
achieving, Instead of tho abolished shams which
were of the devil, tbe practicable realities wtikb
should be veritable and of God. That first half ot
the battle, I rejoice to see. Is now safe, can now nevr
er cease except In victory; bnt tbe further stage of
it, I also see, must be under better presidency than
that of France, or It will for ever prove, impossible.
The German race, not the Gaelic, are now to bo
protagonist in that Immense world drama ; and from,
them I expect better Issues. Worse we cannot well
have. France, with a dead-lilt effort, now of clgh'j
one years, bal accomplished under tbla head, for
herself or for tho world, nothing, or even less In
strict arithmetic, zero, with minus qusntltlcs. Iler
prophets prophecy a vsln thing, her people rove la
darkness and have wandered far astray. ,
" A hundred years ago there was in England tho
liveliest desire, and at one time an actual effort and
hope, to recover Alsace and Loniane from the
French. Lord Carteret, called afterward! Lord
Granville (no ancestor, In any sense, of his now
honorable synonym), thought by some to be, with.
the one exception of Lord Chatham, tbe wisest for
eign secretary we ever had, and especially tbo, 'ono
secretary that ever spoke German or understood
German matters at all,' had set hla heart on this
very object, and had fair prospects of achieving it,
bad not tbe poor Duke of Newcastle suddenly ped
dled htm out of It, and even out of office altogether,
into sullen disgust (snd too much of wine with- ,
al, says Walpole), and Into total oblivion by bis na
tion, which, except Chatham has none rjch to re
mcmbar. That Bismsrclc, aud Germany along with
him, should now at this propitious Juoetnrc make a
like demand Is no surprise to me. After such prov
ocation and after such a victory, tbe resolution
does not seem rational. Just, and even modest. And
considering all that bas occurred since that memo
rable cataclysm at Sedan, I conld reckon It credit
able to tbe sense and moderation of Count Bis
marck that he stands steadily by this; demanding
nothing more, resolute to take, nothing less, and ad
vancing with a slow calmness toward It by thl
ellglbleat roads. Tbe 'Siege of Paris,' which Uoki
like tbe bngest and most hideous farce trageiy
ever played under the sun, JSfsmsrclr. evidently
hopes will never need to come to uttermost bom
bardment, to million-fold death by hunger, or tte
kindling of Paris and Its carpentries and atpbslt
streets by shell and red hot balls Into a sea of fire.
Dilligent, day by day, seem those Prussians, never
resting nor too mncb hasting; well knowing the
proverb, 'Slow fire makes sweet malt,' I believe
Bismarck will get bis Alsace, and what he wants of
Lorraine; and likewise It wllldoblm, and us, and
all tbe world, asd even France Itself by and by, a
great deal ot good. Anarchic France get her first
stern lesson there a terriblo drastic dose of physic
to sick France I and well will it be for her If she
can learn her lesson honestly. If she cannot, sic
will get another, and ever another ; learnt the lesson
