As we have before bliQwu, there would be

"Wc insert an adverttsementin one issue
of to-day, that plans and'suggestions for
the Hotel which orir citizens are desirous
should be . erected, will be received for
consideration until the first of April next.
flit is a proverb that " very few men are
able to run a hotel," yet there are some in
ourcommunity who have run one in the
past, and there are more who belicvei
,wcre the chance offered, would be ready
to try their skill in the management of
such an establishment.- But toour appre
hension, judging from the various and dis
cordant opinions which have been venti
lated during the discussion of the hotel
project,dt appears that the building of a
. i - - t ,r
noiet is a rancu more reconuue openiiion
than the running of one. The questions
grave and .frivolous ; the contingencies
probable and conjectural ; the " ifs and
ands" which have started into prominence,
and have been promulgated with all the
gravity of settled convictions, or the
K.i.forcc of accepted postulates, until every
talker has proved to himself that his own
views are the only sound ones, and his
neighbors' supreme folly, are so numerous
and irreconcilable that untying the Gor-
dian knot, compared to the situation; is
simplicity itself.
Wc are not of those whobelicvcthat,in
all cases, " in the multitude of counselors
there is safety," since in matters that re
quire decision and action, the multitude
only produce confusion. There is informa.
tiou and knowledge to be gained, and a
comprehension of tho situation, by,a mul
titudc of counselors; liut as is frequently
proved in military matters, the more co iu
sel the Commanding General takes when
in a critical situation, the less successful is
he in his operations, and as it happened
to Bazaine at 3Ictz, the precious time in
which he might have escaped being
hemmed in, was wasted by the indecision
arising from councils that could not agree
as to what was best to be done. The
wise King of the Jews, of world-wide pro
verbial reputation, did not pronounce for
the multitude when he asserted that the
beleaguered city had been lost except for
its one poor wise man, who delivered it
from its enemies. So Todlcben, at Sevas
topol, worked, wonders in the way of de
fence that would never have challenged
the attention of the world, had he been
obliged to defer to. the advice and opinion
of everybody in that city, who might have
thought himself entitled to criticise the
situation, or offer advice thereon.
So, loo, but we need not multiply
illustrations of the general principle, as
everyone can comprehend at a glance, that
neither in Sevastopol or 3Ietz, nor on any
other historical occasion, has there existed
such a situation as our present one the
erection of a building which must be built
so that every one shall bo satisfied with
it, and every one's ideas be realized in its
construction and arrangement. If built
under such direction, the counselors may
come out all right, but the same can
hardly be expected of the building.
There are, perhaps, some, from their
knowledge or experience in the construc
tion of houses; others from their acquaint
ance with the business oi hotel-keeping,
or information derived from general ob
servation, who, if disposed to contributo
their ideas, may oiler valuable suggestions
and perhaps available plans. If there are
such, the Committee will be glad to hear
from them, and to regard any " opinion "
that may seem worthy of consideration ;
and on the other hand, we suppose if auy
citizen outside of those whose business is
the drafting of buildings, has any " valu
able suggestions" to make, that he will
not withhold them, because he cannot
exchange them for cashs
"Wood ami KartlMiuakc.
As tve have walked around the streets
during the last week, there has been
very little to attract tho attention.
Sugar commences to arrive steadily, and
the only excitement wc have been able to
observe is that arising from a sale of a
small lot of statuary aud vases ; the sale
of which happening on two evenings of
the week, furnished the chief topic of con
versation for the two succeeding days.
Almost everybody, therefore, whom wo
have met, fell back upon the hotel, as the
piece de resistance, most of them telling us
what ought not to be done. It is true
that each person advances his ideas of
what ought to be done, at the same time
demonstrating to his own satisfaction that
no other idea is admissible. For our own
part, we expressed an idea in our last issue,
that the main buildiug should be of stone,
as giving both a more substantial appear
ance as well as setting the example for
more permanent improvements thati those
wc have animadverted upon for some
weeks past.
"Wc are not aware that our article was
"labored," as the Advertiser says it" was.
It did not cost us much labor; being in
terested in the matter, and wishing to give
our ideas as they had occurred to us after
a good deal of reflection, and we would
modestly say, after having heard much
conversation on the subject in the locali.
ties where men most do congregate, we
wrote currentc calamo nd rather,thought
it was, quite an easy affair? not at all la
bored. Our remarks brought out a rejoinder,
which is very desirable, certainly. "We
might take the oppportunity to remark
that it seems to have been written by
some one interested in the lumber trade; -
but this would be an impoliteness' towards

He says, 'that " one short monthago but
few among lis could have been found who
would not have conceded that this plan
(stone) was, on the whole, the most pre
ferable one to follow in the proposed pub
lic improvements. Now, however, it is
timeless to disguise the fact that public
pinion in favor of stone structures in
these Islands has received a shock from
'rvhich it will not soon recover." Because
there was a shock of an earthquake " there
will always remain a feeling of insecurity
for the safety not only of our property but
of our lives."
Now, we are beginning to think that
our neiglibor is aspiring more and more to
the sensational. First, to be sold on
comet, which some over-credulous and not
very correct mathematician predicted
would knock this mundane sphere int
" cocked hat " half a dozen years ago, and
then to become entirely demoralized at
the occurrence of an earthquake of more
than usual severity, and to attempt to dis
courage the erection of stone,.brick or con
crete buildings because we might have
another still heavier at some future time,
looks very much like it at least. Surely
this shock, which has frightened our
friend and which he insist has so fright
ened his friends, did very little damage
here (none, in fact, "to spsak 6f,) to any
building whatever. Now, for the past
fifty years, and wc do not know for a how
much longer pcriodthis is the heaviest
shock of earthquake felt on this Island.
Shall wc, then, because once in fifty or a
hundred and fifty years these things
occur on a scale to frighten people,
but at the same time do no damage,
cease to uuna substantial stone or
brick "buildings, which when once built
will last for ages without material re
pairs, and build, instead, wooden struc
tures which will require from the time
they are built, repairs, and which in
few years will become uninhabitable
barns ? "Wc think not. It is just as rea
sonable to suppose that the people of New
York and Boston, and certainly San Fran
cisco, should cease to erect the splendid
stone buildings which are being constantly
erected in those cities and build in wood,
as that we should do the same. They have
lately been frightened by earthquakes,
and if experience goes for anything, the
people of the latter city have much more
cause to anticipate disaster on this score
than we have. Perhaps if the people who
have such misgivings in regard to sub
stantial structures here, had been in San
Francisco in 1808, the' would have
strongly recommended tearing down the
Custom House, 3Iint aud other large struc
tures and replacing them with wood. We
believe they would in that case have been
looked upon by the good people of that
city as little less than lunatics. Their ad
vocacy of wood here is no more reason
Xlic War.
Before the next mail arrives which we
hope will bring intelligence that peace has
been definitely declared between Germauy
and F ranee, it may interest our readers
briefly to review a war which, for magni
tude of proportions, bitterness of contest,
and surprising results, has few equals, if
an', in history.
To correctly understand the causes
which led to this war, and the spirit
which has animated its conduct, it is
necessary to go back to the first decade
of the present century, when Germany
lay bleeding at the feet of France; when
every German Capital witnessed the tri
umphant entry of French armies; when
Germany was pieced and parcelled out
ike a confiscated fief or an escheated
farm, at the beck of the conqueror, as
well-earned guerdons among the confed
erate or allied princes who followed his
banner ; when the humiliation, suffering
and spoliation which Germany underwent
at the hands of France, were something
almost incredible. Peace came in 1815,
but not oblivion ; and the. laurels of that
peace rested on English aud Russian
brows, while Germany was left to crawl
out from under her ruins as best she
might. Fifty-five years of rest, all the
blandishments of peace, all the progress
of civilization, all tho interests of com
merce, all the theories of social science,
have not been able to efface the terrible
memory of those ten years of French su
premacy in Germany.
Stumbling over the ruins caused by
the French occupation, worried by in
ternal" rivalries, hampered by external
complications, and groping its way
through political darkness, one State arose
above the chaos of German affairs, and
through its patience, vigilance, perse-
crence, and boldness of initiative,
took tho lead in the national councils.
Then arose the slogan of German Unity,
with clear and clarion notes, and -the
magic of the word threw a glamour over
the means by which it was sought to be
accomplished. The strength of that
leading State grew apace, and Prussia was
looked upon, and through her admirable
administration prepared herself to be the
coming avenger of Germany.
Now, that the precipitancy and infatu
ation of the late- Emperor of the French
have turned events out of their legitimate
sequence, it may be idle to speculate upon
what that sequence might have been, had
France possessed her soul with patience,
had she prepared herself as Germany was
preparing, had she not underrated her foe
of '"overrated ' herself. France had her
memoricsas well'as regards Germany,
but they were glorious memories. They
were calculated to stimulate to deeds of
individual heroism in the moment of bat
tle ; but such memories generally fail to
nspire that caution and minute attention
to detaihr'wh'ich provide commissariat
chests, and parks of artillery; which train
the tactician and drill the sddier."; -uch
memories, ift.long continrrd unbroken,
are but too aptto make haders., supine,
and subordinates arrogant. -
France had ample noticiin the fate of
Denmark and of Austria, of the coming
duLbetween.thetwo natons.. -.Circumstances
might .delay it, ba nothing short
of the Hillenium could av.-rt it.- Strong
in her traditional memorie, flattered and
feared as the greatest, nilitary power in
Europe, France felt not tie slightest mis
giving as to the result of, a duel with
Germany as it then was; but the com
plete unification "of that country troubled
its mind, because it saw clearly that 'a
united and consolidated 3ermany would
never tolerate its dreans of the Rhine
Provinces, and that prolably the drama
of Schleswig-Holstein would be repeated
under German patronige in Alsace
Lorraine. It was to prevent that unifica
tion that France precipitated the war.
The ostensible cause was but a diplomatic
pretext, and was uot. believed in cither in
Franco or. Germany. In fact, the very
declaration of war gives the key to the
problem, when it ignores the consolidation
of Germany so far as it' had proceeded,
and in pitching into Prussia alone, holds
out promises of favor and countenance to
every German- State that would remain
neutral in the fray, or foUow.the banner
of F ranee.
This precipitation f "France was
almost as fatal to her as her own unpre
paredness for the contest. It surprised
and alarmed Europe and withdrew"' sym
pathy from her. It brought every Ger
man State, whether in or out of the
Confederation, to the sde of Prussia.
They all felt, instinctivdyj tho hollow
ncss of the pretext, anl that the real
issue was not a quarrel orer dead men's
shoesj or the unimportant succession to a
distant throne, hut whether live men, 'and
those men Germans, should.be permitted
to arrange their FatherlandHn' their own
way. Prussia accepted the challenge,
and Germany rose as one man, with one
will and one purpose, to inculcate the
salntary lesson that United Germany is
sufficient for itself to protect its honor
and defend its interests.
Wc have all read the current descrip
tions ot the events of this memorable
conflict. Wc have seen France betrayed
into a war for which she could really care
but little except to uphold the prestige of
her arms. Wc have seen how soon tho
jubilant exultation with which she went
into the war was changed into gloom
and disaster. We have seen how" treach
ery, jobbing, and corruption had impaired
her military organization ; how her armies
were short in numbers, in ammunition, in
commissariat. But- we have also seen
and it is with us a pleasure as well as
justice to record" the fact, the unparal
leled bravery of her soldiers, in spite of
those untoward circumstances; the heroic
defense of her fortified places; the stub
born resistance, tbe pluck and endurance
with which she has attempted, again and
again, to stem the torrent of invasion and
to turn the fortunes of the war. But all
her efforts were unavailing. From causes
just referred to, she was brought upon her
knee at the very first important engage
ment, and the vigilance, steady purpose
and sturdy will of the Germans have kept
her thus ever since. She has lost every
stricken field during the war, but she has
saved her honor, and at Woerth, Grave
lotte, and Sedan, and many other places,
the ancient inborn gallantry of the French
nation has thoroughly vindicated itself.
Now that the'Germans stand victorious
on French soil, with Paris in their hands,
there arc some who seem to think that
they ought to have stopped on the Rhine,
to defend their own land, or at least at
Sedan. With all our aspirations after
that better state "when war shall be no
more," for the present, we are obliged
to accept mankind as they are. A Deacon
Jones or Elder Smith might possibly not
follow their adversary over the fence that
separates their lands and keep on thrash
ing him to his own 'house, but unfor
tunately the Deacon Joneses and Elder
Smiths do not represent the majority of a
nation, or express its opinions. It is trite
but true, that no nation is greater than
its average men, and the average men of
Germany, no more than the average
men of France, England, tho United
States, or any other civilized country,
are not yet up to the sublime point of
self-abnegation when they would forbear
to follow an enemy as far they could, and
smite him as long as -he showed any re
sistance, and until he sued for peace.
Would .the French have stoppe'd at Cob
lentz or 3Lagdebourg, had fortune favored
their attack ? The " On to Berlin," gives
the answer.
On he moderation and prndencc of
Germauy in the terras of peace now being
negotiated will, probably, depend whether
that peace will be genuine and lasting, or
merely a temporary, hollow truce. If no
humiliating element enters into the con
ditions of peace, there is nothing to
prevent those two great nations from
hereafter progressing side by side with a
better feeling and juster appreciation of
each other than heretofore.
