THE DAILY EVENING jTELEGRAPH PHlLADfiLrillA. WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 1870.
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.
