TUB WAR IN FRANCS MOVEMENTS AND COUN TER MOYEMKKT8 1'OSITION OF THE CONTRST ANTS THE EASTERN QUESTION ITS PROBA BLE SOLUTION ENGLAND NOT INCLINED TO FIGHT. London, Nov. 22. -(Special to the New York World.) A Berlin despatch of to day says that, Accordicg to the latest information received from Versailles, incessant exertious are directed to the formation of a second outer line of Invest ment, to cover the operations of the inner line. Tbe strategy of D'Aurelles is nuderstood at Ver sailles, and has been met by a counter move ment, with its centre at Orleans. D'Aurelles has extended his lines, both norta and south, intending to enclose the Germans on both flanks, and the latter have executed similar movements, falling back at the same time to wards Paris. D'Aurelles' line Is now said to extend from Le Mans through Vendome, Or leans, and Bonrges, to Nevera. His main body rests along this line, while it is feared that a large section of his force has passed north to wards Evrcux. Hit line ulso extends from Or leans to Angerville, aud in the triangle whereof Vendome, Orleans, and Angerville are the points. The German line extends from Cha teaunenf through Chartres aadEuuipes to Fou taincbleau. Tbe belief in Downing street is that Russia, in deference to the united opinion of the great powers, will withdraw the pretensions advanced by Gorttchakoff's note, andjexpress her willing sees to refer the question at issue to a confer ence, which will not be summoned until after tbe termination of the present war. It is be lieved in some quarters that Italy will ultimately join Austria and England ia resisting Russia. A Brussels telegram of to-day says that a Paris letter of November 14, which came by balloon, states that the city is quiet and perfect order prevails. Tbe attitude of the population and troops is excellent, aud there are ample provisions for three months. There were lately no serious engagements, and nothing has oc curred except insignificant cannonades. Great events are expected within a few days. London, Not. 22. (Special toN.Y. Tribune.) A St. Petersburg despatch of to-day says that tbe city government yesterday unanimously and enthusiastically adopted an address of thanks to the Emperor for Gortschakoff 's cir cular. A Tours despatch of to-dar says: "A de spatch from the Army of tbe Vosges relates that 400 met from the 'Doubs' aud saner battalions, under Ricclotti Garibaldi, attacked Cnulllon, west of Autun, at six this mornlug. The place was occupied by 750 Prussians, who bail ex pected a reinforcement that day of 1400 men. The enemy was routed, leaving 120 dead, In cluding two colonels and one major. ( ne hun dred snd sixty prisoners were taken, including ten officers, and munition and baggage wagons wsre captured. Four French soldiers were killed and twelve wounded." A correspondent writes from Garibaldi's headquarters, at Antun, on November 18: The reported quarrel between Garibaldi and the Francs-tireurs is utterly nnfouuaed. Large numbers of the latter throng the headquarters, atking to be placed under tbe General's sou's command, from Marseilles and the departments of the Jura, Saone, and Loire, even faster tau equipments can be supplied. The General is In good condition, and the spirits of his men have greatly improved. DiiBculiies continue te exist between him and the Autun priests, most of whom are either Bonapartists or Prussian spies, but military matters are nevertheless growing dally better. Tbe Italian battalions are magnificently or ganised and disciplined. Great activity pre vails in various directions. Tbe French jea lousy toward Garibaldi is still maintained at Tours and elsewhere, but no longer paralyzes us. Gortochakoil's answer to Granville left St. Petersburg on Monday by a specUl messenger. It was not communicated to the British Ambas sador at St. Petersburg, but his despatches inti mate that tbe note is conciliatory in tone, Gortscbakcff's circular was a surprise to Bis marck, who is thought to indicate bis discon tent by the civilities shown to Odo Russell during bis journey and oa bis arrival at Ver sailles. Lomdox, Nov. 23 (Special to tbe New York Herald). A. telegram, dated November at Vienna, referring to Austria's rejoinder, sup- pored to be prompted by ueiaud. savs it is as follows: Russia's wishes in regard to the BUuk Sea might have been put forward through dip lomatic channels, ana possibly acceded to by tbe great powers concerned, but tbe arbitrary expression of ber will calls for tbe gravest re sistance from all parties. Berlin, Nov. 22.-(8peclal to the New York World ) Tbe treaty with the 8outh German States, Baden and Kesse, was signed on Novem ber 15. It adopts the norm German coastuu tion, and a protocol, and makes tbe following stipulations: The constitution to go into effect on January 1, 1871, with the introduction of a common budget. The transfer of the postal and telegraph service in Baden, to the Bund, is postponed until January 1, 1873. Baden and Hesse are in no way responsible for tbe recent loan of the existing Buna. Tbe laws concern ing tbe press and public meetings will be placed wiibin the jurisdiction of tbe Bund, Hesse will have two more voters ia the Bund, and Baden three, making forty-etbt in all. In questions affecting only particular States their votes only are to be taken. A declaration of war can only be made with the accent of tbe council. Southern Hesse is to re turn six members and Baden fourteen to the German Diet, and for the arbitrators in the Cer ium Diet, it will be necessary to have a ma jority of three-fourths and not two-thirds, as hitherto. Bihi.in. Nov. 23 -(Special to N. Y. Tribune.) Accounts from headquarters show that the -dispositions have been abandoned whereby Frederick Charles was to cross the Loire and marck on Bonrges, and take the army of the Loire In tbe rear. All the German forces are now concentrating on Paris, and the iuvesting army is to be cevered against all interruption dnring the actual operations pending, by a mili tary reml-clrcle from Etarapes, Chartres and Dreux to Evrenx and Mantes, with Frederick Charles' army beading the line on tbe south, Gen. Manteuffel on the north and tbe Duke of Mecklenburg on the western centre. Touhs, Nov. 22 A balloon has just brought good news from Paris. The success of the army of the Loire bad produced an excellent effect. Dissensions were forgotten, and an amnesty for political offenders had been granted. The people bad consented to abandon their eager ness for a sortie, and were resigned to stand on the defensive. There had teen no serious fight ing and but little cannonading around Paris. Lille, Nov. 22. A Prussian scouting party of sixty Uhlans was attacked near St. Quenlin and compelled to By. A body of Prussian foot, horse, and artillery, 11,000 strong, is advancing on Amiens, supposed to be a portion of M m teuffel's command. Aronnd Paris the circle of investment is enlarging daily, and the chances of resistance and reprisal artf increasing. War engines, heretofore untried, are relied upon by tbe besieged. GREECE. Frem the London Btw4my i!tt. The statement that Qreeee has recognised the French republic, while it ia rather alias ing than important, reminds the careless ob server of events that there are other foreign communities besides the belligerents who have engrossed the attention of the world. A ruuch more surprising statement was lately forwarded by telegraph from Florenoe, to the effect that Greece had concluded an offensive and defensive alliance with Turkey. If the report had been but true, it might have been inferred that the Greeks had at last deter mined to concentrate their undivided efforts on domestic improvement. It is not impos sible that such a treaty, and the policy which it would imply, might prove the nearest road to the attainment of their cherished objeots. It may or may not be true that the Turks in Europe are dying oat; but without an entire change of character they would find it difficult to maintvia their posi tion in the immediate neighborhood of a prosperous and well-governed Greek king dom. The only pursuit in which the Turks naturally equal or excel their rivals is the primitive business of fighting, nor cau the Greeks hope to defeat the in except with the aid ot a protector wno wouwt be tar more formidable than their ancient enemy. It may be hoped that the supposed treaty is bat a symbolical exaggeration of the desire of the present Greek Government to attend to its own anairs. it is believed that the Deligeorgis Ministry is determined, if possible, to suppress the scandal of brigand age. The recent capture of robbers by two well-known and respectable inhabitants of Livadiain the midst of the town has revived the indignation which was caused by the dis graceful tragedy of Marathon. Tbe Govern ment would probably be supported by popu lar opiuion in the construction of roa la aud in the establishment of an eminent police. The army, which is kept up at great expeuse in superfluous numbers, is largely employed in tbe collection of taxes Irom the com paratively honest part of the population, while tbe robbers openly defy authority and law. The aid and shelter; hioa are provided for freebooters by the rural inhabitants, iu Greece as in other similar countries, are not to be regarded as a proof that their vocation is really popular, it is impossible that shep herds and farmers, unless they are affiliated to the profession, should really wino. both to pay a tribute more burdensome than the Gov- erment taxes, and to incur occasional danger for the benefit of their rapaoiaiis guests. The robbers have destroyed their richest source of profit by deterring travellers from entering the country, and consequently thy are reduced to the necessity of extortiug ran soms from their own peaceful countrymen. It is easier to trace the anarchy and poverty of Greece to misgovernment than to remove the canscs of corruption and weakness. As there is no aristocracy in the country, the general equality of conditions is properly recognized in the establishment of a large and popular constituency. Iu aooordauoe with modern constitutional doctrines, the Assembly has the power to make aud uuintke ministers, and in fact it does nothing else. The prizes of political activity are not in trinsically great, but they are sufficiently valuable to absorb the whole attention of the Deputies. A frequent rotation of office gratifies In turn the ambition or the largest possible number of politicians; and the remainder, if they canuot hope to be Ministers, naturally expeot sooie reward for their support of their respective party leaders. To secure their own seats in the Assembly, the Deputies have to court the most active local partixans, who are them selves in some parts of the country connected with the bandits. As long as a government can retain its position, its power is al-uost despotic; and the shifting of the majority is determined by causes which have little to do with administrative merit or political honesty. A Minister who earnestly devoted him self to the establishment of internal security would provoke many enemies, and it is not certain that he would be cordially supported by tbe great mass of the coruoiuuiiy whijn wonld Lave an interest in the success of hit enterprise; yet the experiment may now be tried with exceptional advantage, inasmuch a,s the mischievous passion for foreign aggran dizement has for the time been effeotutlly discouraged. The main object of the insur rection in Crete was tbe maintenance in lower of a Ministry which flattered the popu sr weakness. No other petty State can molest and harass a more powerful neighbor with tbe impunity which is secured to Greece, not merely by tbe triple Protecto rate, but by the sentiment of Europe. Tbe principal danger which was to be apprehended from the irregular encour agement of the Cretan insnrgencs oousisted not so much in the ohauoe of a oollision with tbe Turkish forces as iu the increased dis organization of Greece itself. The volun teers who from time to time returned from the island contributed to swell the ranks of brigandage, and to furnish ostensible occupa tion for tbe army which would have beau hat ill prepared to resist a foreign invader. Not withstanding tbe repeated and ostensible provocations which were offered to Turkey, tbe Government never intended to engage iu war. No portion of the large sums wnioh were raised on the pretext of national d tense was spent in procuring arms or la equipping troops. The rebuke which was addressed to Greece by the Paris Conference was well understood and keenly felt y quick- witted nation. For the first time in twenty years the sounder part of the commu nity understands tne ioiiy of ambitious pro jects, and the necessity of reforming internal administration.. Tbe highest authorities on questions re lating to Greece hold that the people have, vrn nnder the present constitution, the means of rforniitg th flagrant abases whioh prevail. Ministers and deputies wonld not object te consult the public welfare if they fonnd that they were likely to be rewarded by continuance in offico, for serving their country. The centralization whioa exists is both mischievous in itself and inconsistent with national eharacter and tradition. If the Government of Athens employed itself in protecting life and property, and in re luo ing taxation, as far as possible, parishes and districts would perhaps under take tbe construction of roads and other ma terial improvements. Although neither of tbe two dynasties which Europe has bestowed on Greece has hitherto conferred any con siderable benefits on the nation, there is no reason to believe that anything would be gained by the establishment of a republic A king at the worst either abstains from in terference or commits political blunders. His interests is identical with the good of the nation, and he can soarcely be open to a bribe. The highest place in a Greek re public would be the object of more active competition than the post of a lloyal Minis ter, and perhaps it might, as in Houth America, be sometimes the prize of civil war. It is a redeeming feature in the modern his tory of Greece that the candidates for power have been Parliamentary intriguers and not military adventurers. The Court corruption which was practised in the time of Otho would probably be revived by a President. Tbe Chamber, if it retained its present power, wonld require no additional faeilities of beneficent legislation; and experience shows that representative systems flourish best in combination with an hereditary Executive. Happily tbe Greeks themselves have no fancy for changes in the form of government. Under certain provisions of the Greek Con stitution, which seem not to have beooms operative, the King might exercise a direct power which has not generally been included in modern political systems. His ministers, though they require tbe support of a Parlia mentary majority, are also responsible to the Crown; and tbe judicious exercise of the prerogative would probably be approved by public opinion. The present king had the disadvantage of ascending the throne in his boyhood, when it was impossible that he should possess any real power. His connec tion with the Imperial family of Russia may also hamper bis independent aotioa; but he is still young eaough to vindicate the expe diency of an almost accidental selection. He might be pardoned for cherishing the ambition of aggrandizing Lis kingdom, if only he understood the order and natural succession of measures by which a small State becomes great. A domestic adminis tration which should render Greece a model or a contrast to surrounding States would de serve the pre-eminence which is now prema turely claimed. King Otbo, like the ill-judging knight in the story, forgot that it was necessary to draw the sword before he blew tbe horn. Having done nothing to render, his kingdom worthy of an Imperial rank, he weakly and rashly made himself the tool of a foreign power which was not even able to protect him. If King George, now in the early prime of life, were vigorous euongh to establish order and prosperity at home, be might calculate .on the full acknowledg ment of his public servioea both by the Greeks and by foreigners. The Eastern ques tion would be best solved by the growth of a civilized and independent State wuiota might in due time naturally succeed to the supre macy which may sooner or later pass from the Ottoman Empire. The pretense that Greece is ill-governed because its limits were not originally extended to include Epirus or Crete is transparently frivolous. The lonisu Islands, which were voluntarily annoxei to the kingdom by England ouly a few years ago, have from the time of the transfer steadily declined in social and political con dition. Tbe Turkish provinoes on the main land and in the islands which are ooveted by ambitious Greek politicians would not admit of equal deterioration, but they would gain I nothing by a change of allegianoe. It is a significant fact that wealthy and intelligent Greeks prefer Constantinople as a place of residence to Athens. SCIENCE AND THE CLERGY. With regard to the question of time, the views of men have changed remarkably in our day and generation; aud I must say as re gards courage also, and a manful willingness to engage in open contest, with fair weapons, a great caange Has also occurred. The clergy of England at all events the clergy of Lou don have nerve enough to listen to the strongest views which any one among us would care to utter; and they invite, if they do not challenge, men of the most decided opinions to state and stand by those opinions in open court. No theory upsets thsin. Let tbe most destructive hypothesis be stated only in tbe language current amonz gentlemen, and they look it in tbe face. They forego alike the thouders of Leaven and the terrors of the other place, smiting the theory, if they do not like it, with hoDest secular strength. In faot, the greatest cowards of the present day are not to be fonnd among tne clergy, but wittua sue pale of science itself. Two or three years ago, in an ancient London college a olerioal institution I beard a very remarkable leo lure by a very remarkable man. Three or four hundred clergymau were present at the lectcre. The orator began with the civiliza tion of Egypt in tbe time of Joseph, pointing out that the very perfect organization of the kingdom, and the possession of chariots, in one of which Joseph rode, indicated a long antecedent period of civilization. lie then patsed on to the mud of the Nile, its rata of snguientation, its present thickness, and the remains of human handiwork found therein ; thence to the rooks which bound the Kile valley, whiuh teem with organio remains. Thus, in his own clear and admirable way, he caused tbe idea of tbe world's age to expand ittelf indefinitely before the miud of his au dience, and be contrasted this with the age usually assigned to the world. During his discourse he seemed to be swimming against a stresm; he manifestly thought that he was opposing general conviction. lie expected resistance; so did I. lint it was all a mis tske; there va no adverse current; no op pcsii g conviction, no resistance, merely here nd tbtre a half humorous but unsuccess ful attempt to entangle him in his tslk. The meeting agreed with all that bad been said regarding the antiquity of earth snd of its life. Xney bad, indeed, known it all long ago, and they good-huuioradlv rallied the lecturer for coming among them v.ith so stale a etorv. It was quite plain that this large body of clergymen, who were, I should say, tbe finest samples of their olass, bad entirely given up the ancient 1 in d marks, and transported the conception of life's origin to an indefinitely distant past. In fact, clergymen, if I might be allowed a parenthe sis to say so, have as strong a leaning toward scientific truth as other men, only the resist ance to this bent a resistance da to educa tion is generally stronger in their case than in others. They do not lack the positive ele- mnt namely, tbe love of truth, but the negative element, tbe fear of error, preponde rates. BIowbms of acceptation, or even hostility, may be thus aocounted for.
