COUNT TON MOLTKE. From Ih London Sptrtator. Immense, and, as it were, Rolf -dependent strength of the Prussian suonarcny is shown in nothing so clearly as in the way the IIohenzollernB hare maintained the tradition of tbriftinens in the bestowal of rewards. Tbey have never had to bny anybody. From first to last, from the first King to the first Emperor, the sovereigns of Prussia have been exceptionally independent within their dominions have been as individuals wealthy, and have followed a bold, far-reaching, and ambitions line of policy. Wiih territories little larger than Holland, and a country far less rich, tbey claimed and maintained A posi tion among the mightiest potentates of the world, resented the faintest slight to an Ambassador, and scarcely acknowledged precedence even in the Etnperor of Germany. They have occupied precisely the position which tempts men to spend most lavishly, yet they have maintained for l.0 years, through six genera tions in their official policy as in their household management a tradition of thrift, pushed often to cheeseparing parsi mony. One man in the line was a kind of Northern Bourbon, wasting wealth in sterile magnificence and coarse voluptuousness; but he did not break the tradition, and to this bout the Ilohenzollerns are served better than any Princes of Europe, and give their servants smaller rewards. Nobody in Prussia is paid anything like the worth of his work. Tho whole aristocracy is drawn into the army by salaries which would diRgust English bank clerks, while the elite of the cultivated, men usually without means, are formed into am effective bureaucracy, and paid less than English clergymen. A genercl is paid like an English captain, and a prefect like a su perior clerk, while the majority of the bu reaucracy, which initiates and directs and moderates all things in Prussia, which gov erns in the highest sense of that misused word, are compelled to practise an economy which English Dissenting ministers or Scotch schoolmasters would deem painful. A rigid, unsparing economy pervades every depart ment, and has so penetrated officials as to be come a kind of point of honor, as if .waste or even espensiveness were in themselves jnst a little discreditable. To this hour, the King, who has become by suc cessive accretions of wealth one of the richest princeB in Europe perhaps the richest in personal income thinks it no shame to send to a city in distress which he keenly desires to conciliate 0o thalers, or 7."0, and would feel genuine surprise if informed that the sum was not very great. In the midst of incessant battles with Parlia ment for money, the Schloss treasure 7,000,0(i has never been teuched except for war, nnd the State commences a grand campaign, tLe greatest of our century, with a loan which London would take up at a bite and forget in a day. The extra amount of public money expended as yet in this war by Germany is' not 4:20,000,000, and though XlC,000,'oiO more were recently asked for, the departments have found, time to reduce the demand to twelve. Part of this economy is due, no doubt, to the practice of levying requisitions, taught by the First Napoleon to Germany; but Its main support is a thrift so determined that the plunderers have given up the- game in despair, and as a Prussian ollicul once said to the writer, "Our-treasury is not afraid even of a dockyard." This rigor not only con tinues under the present administration, but is slightly intensified, "many small pecula tions having been suppressed," and pushed in some departments almost iato cruelty. The Prussian hospital service, for example, i penurious to an unjust degree. There are not enaufch surgeons, no comforts are al lowed, not even hospital clothes, men with broken limbs still wearing their cheap rough uniforms. Quinine, chloral, good wine, everything that costs money, is always, the international surgeons report, wanting, and the disuse of chloroform is partly due to a dislike for an expense which a little more "fortitude" in the victims of war would Render needless. No Seneral, however high, makes a fortune; Baron von Dreyse receives a modest wage, and we doubt if Sir Joseph Whit worth would reckon Krapp as rioh. The State in Prussia aooepts your services, it does not buy them; and yet those servioos are exceptionally well rendered. There is not, ho far as we know, an instance in Prussian history of a (State servant having been re warded as Marlborough was, or Wellington, or even Lord Hardinge or Lord Dalhousie. A sum was voted after Sadowa to the King, to distribute among his highest servants; but Count Bismarck, who had given Prussia the supremacy in Germany, received only an estate .laie indeed in acreage, but not worth '.-.0,000 in open market; and Baron von Moltke still less, a sum, if we remember rightly, of about Xl.yXM). Nor is this chariness of money made np by any lavibess of honors or carelessness in social discipline. The King is in the last resort master of every man, and accounts have beeu published, obviously correct, of the great Chancellor's dangers from a group of legitimist old ladies who constantly, by their influence with the King, thwarted his best-laid Jans. If the world is not utterly misinformed, he has had to resign once or twice, and even now he remains just what he was; Count Bismarck Sohonhausen master in one way of the world, but hopelessly unable to contend with the stern old oflioer who is indebted to him for supremacy in Europe, for a position which fulfils the dreams of German legend-makers, and might make Frederick the Groat leap under his stone shroud w ith exultation chief among the ktatesmen of Europe, but still the "faithful servant of my august" and not very intelleo tnal "master." It was widely rumored after Hadowa that Connt Bismarck would receive the little enclave which is still, we believe, kept in some way separate from Prussia, and would be Duke of Lauenburg, but Prussians only smiled at the report. He serves the Ho--teu-ollernx, tbey said, not Napoleon; and so it proved. Honor enough to him that the Xing accetds his advice. The routine ob served towards the Chancellor is intelligible for after till he only makes history but we confess, fully as we had recognized the policy of the great ierruan dynasty in this matter of rewards, the cold thrift of honor as well as money which makes every star so valuable we have felt a faint surprise at the measure meted out to Von Moltke. lie wins campaigns. lie is the greatest in the field which the King bestknoMR. The nreci-e place which Gene ral von Moltke will hold in military history is .till perLaps uncertain.! llle has never yet, either in IN4, or in 18oti, or in 1870, been opposed to a reasonably good tactician, an cmal army, or a formidable strategist. Beat- ins the Danes, wnen mey aa oaiy musKeis, was poor work; and Benedek, perhaps ham pered by fucret instructions, proved but a feeble opponent; while in France he has never met a strategist of any sort, and only once a general. We rather think, writing n)v as obfKHfUit ClTUlaB"; tllst U M CC' ion he was defeated, and that August 16 should be credited to Marshal B-zaine, who, . bad be had bnt powder, would have retained the honors of the day. But gene ralship must be judged by its results, and judging by results, no sovereign ever had such a servant as General von Moltke, who, having first reorganized an army in which no soldier had ever seen a shot fired, having formed $ school of generals and remade the scientiflo services, so guided that army as in a campaign of seven weeks to strike down the Austrian Empire, and then in a campaign of three months to subjugate the greatest of military monarchies. So far an close and scientiflo observers can detect, General von Moltke has been in this tremendous cam- Esign the Providence of the German army, as planned everything, foreseen everything, Lbs never thrown away a life, and never missed a spring. His single brain has been wotth a hundred thousand men, worth all Napoleon was to the French army, and on his seventieth birthday the King of Prussia makes his mighty general a Count, promotes him one step in the social hierarchy, as it were in recognition en pasta nt of sound ad vice lent to him, the King, in his manage ment of the war. A few days afterwards he makes two Princes of bis own blood, who doubtless have fought well and sncoeeded, bnt who are nevertheless only efficient in struments in Von Moltke's hands, Field-Marshals, the superiors in the military hierarchy of the genius who has led them to victory and empire. In that realm of thought which of all others he understands, in the very mo ment of supreme triumph, with his wholesoul subjected to the advice which yet he will not reward, the greatest Prince in the world coldly and deliberated prefers to the claim of genius that of blood, and signifies to man kind that if his generals master earth, they remain his family servants still. There is something galling to men who be lieve that the tools should go to the workmen in such a distribution of honor, but while we protest, we are not blind to the strength manifest in such acts. They show that the terrible weakness of all new governments, the necessity of buying support, is absent from the Prussian monarchy. The State, and the King as its representative, have no need to conciliate any individual, not even the man who seems to work out victory as if it were a problem in the Calculus. He is bidden to work it out, and what higher inducement could there be? nad a Itepublic employed Von Moltke, it must have dreaded his ambi tion. Had he served Napoleon, Napoleon mnht have loaded him down with honors and wealth and territories, have filled him fat w ith spoil to bind him to his side, and even then must have dreaded in him a rival, a foe, or a successor. The King quietly admires and trusts. He has no need to bribe. He can be endangered by no rival, threatened by no enmity, undermined by no individual opponent. He is there, master by right of birth, in victory as in defeat, too strong for even the semblance of hostility, as far beyond assault as if his power were self-derived, able to acknowledge aid, or to reward high service, or to abstain from rewarding them, and sure. whichever he does, to be held to have acted as became a king. If he hangs np his worn out sword in the place of honor, lo! what a gracious king; if he flings it away, lo! what a master of the severest statecraft. Von Moltke has done his duty, and what can king say more ? It is difficult to read of this countship without a slight feeling of con tempt for such niggardliness in the bestowal even of honors, or without a deep respect for the organization which is so strong that it need scarce be just to a soldier at whose name the fighting world grows pale. Thk Site of Pabadise. Among the papers read at the British Association in London was one by Sir Henry Bawlinson on the Bite of the Terrestrial Paradise. He supposes the geo graphical description in Genesis 11 to be de rived not from Iranian mythology, but Ba bylonian tradition. "Gan-eden," or tho Gar den of Eden, is in his opinion a Hebrew modification of one of the old vernacular names of Babylonia " Gan-duni," "Gan" eic-nitjing apparently an enclosure, while "Duni" was the name of a deity. The four rivers are the Tigris and the Euphrates, the Surrapi and the L'kni, '. e., the eastern arm of the Tigris and the western of the Euphra tes. Cush (rendered in the authorized ver sion Ethiopia) is one of the primitive capitals of Babylonia. It is needless to add that, as at present stated, this theory is much less plausible than that which connects the narra tive in Genesis with Iranian myths, especially as the serpent, and the Tree or Life with its guardian cherubim, are Btill unexplained from Babylonian sources.
