THE DAILY EVENING TELEGRAPH I'HIL.YDRLPIIIA., THURSDAY, JANUARY 5, 1871.
s s spirit or Tzxa run 3 a. Editorial Opinions oftlie Leading Journals upon Current Toplos Compiled Every Day for the Evening Telegraph A LEVEE OF CIIAULE3 V. From the A. 1'. Tribune. The court circles in Madrid Lave recently been indulging in a ghostly sort of pio-nic. The Minister of State invited the diplomatics body to accompany him to the Eioorial. 1 he court journals give a decorous acoount of the expedition, showing how "they arrived at the royal seat in a vernal temperature, and at once directed themselves to the palace which they visited with minuteness. They then passed to the grandiose monastery of St. Lawrence, which they went through, expressing their admiration of the rigid architecture of the immortal Ilerrera, the tapestries and other works of art contained in this eighth wonder of the world." Here the official account dis creetly goes off into generalities, vailing the great event of the day. We have seen a let ter from one of the participants of these Castilian high jinks, which enables us to sup ply the hiatus of the chronicler. The party was introduced to the corpse of Charles V himself, whose sarcophagus, in the great crypt under the chapel, had been opened for the occasion. There was a scaffold in front of the niche appropriated to the great Austrian, with ascending stairs, and the heavy coffin-lid was slid back on beams disclosing the mortal shell of Charles Quint. The slothes had mouldered away, and some priestly tinsel was thrown over the mummy to hide its dry brown nudity. The chest was bare, massive, and drum-tight, giving a hol low sound when tapped, and still measured thirty-six inches, after the waste of centuries. The head was thrown back a little, and the forehead bound with a gold cloth. There were no eyes only a pair of plastered-up pits. There was no nose only a high bony ridge, looking down into a brainless hollow. The mouth was merely a distorted three-cornered hole, and the incisors had fallen down the yawning throat. But the chin was there as in life, thin and aggressive, with an un wholesome brown stubble on it yet, that looked wonderfully like the Titian in the Mnseo. The gay pleasure-party went np the ladder in groups, and came down rather silent and thoughtful. The scintillant remark that Emperors are but men, after all, wai made in all the modern languages for diplomats are never wasteful of wit. They then moved off in a pensivo proces sion to the toy-honse of Charles IV, "whose preciousnesees," says the court journal, again beooming communicative, "they observed with attention, regaling themselves with an exquisite punch.'" They took the evening train for Madrid, loud in their praises of the delicate courtesy of Mr. Sagasta. This keen and witty intriguant doubtless remembered the story of the Cid, who won his last battle the day after his death, strapped upright in his saddle, and must have thought how much more of majesty there would be in the im perial mummy of the Escorial, throned in the palace of the Orient, than in any live princeling now open to a royal engagement TIIE INDIAN NATION. From the X. y. Sun. South of Kansas, lapping the southwestern corner ot Missouri, lies the Indian Territory, or Indian nation, as it is called by the Mis sourians; a region which embraces within its boundaries 70,45G square miles, one-half more than the State of New York, and which has been set apart by treaty stipulations for the occupancy of various Indian tribes. This territory includes some of the richest and most fertile lands of the United States, and is abundantly irrigated by numerous rivers and streams. The climate is delightful the greater portion of the year, and the grass re mains green all winter. The soil is well adapted to corn, wheat, oats, cotton, tobacco, and garden vegetables of all kinds. As a fruit country it is unsurpassed. The population of the Indian Territory is estimated at 53,000, thus giving each man, woman, and child about 1000 acres or land. The Indians who people it are the Cherokees, Creeks, Choctaws, Chickasaws, Seminoles, -and other tribes and nations, who have been driven from their f or mer homes by extermi nating wars, and induced to settle there by our Qovernment under the promise that their rights should be faithfully protected. Each nation or tribe has its own reservation and regulates its own affairs. Many of the tribes have made great progress in civiliza tion. The Cherokees number about 16,000, and own in fee simple 4,000,000 acres of land, while the United States (government holds in trust for them $4,000,000, upon whioh annual interest is paid. Before the Rebellian, in proportion to their numbers, they were the wealthiest nation on the globe. They pos sessed immense herds, one individual alone owning twenty thousand head of cattle, while the man who owned less than three hundred was considered a poor Indian; but it is estimated that 30tt,000 head of stock were stolen from the Territory during the war. Schools have been established through out the Territory, and general interest is manifested by the Indians in the instruction of their children. A grand council of all the tribes has re cently been held at Oomulgee, at which measures were taken for the establishment of a general Territorial Indian Government, subject to the several treaties of the United Btatea with the different tribes, and the com mittee entrusted witn tne matter made a unanimous report in favor of such a gov eminent. Commissioners Campbell, Far well, and Lang, who were present at this council, say that the discussions were con ducted with dignity and ability; after which the report was adopted by a vote of forty eight to five, and a committee of twelve was appointed to draft a constitution. Bat the most interesting and important feature of the proceedings was the disposition shown by the Indians to invite the wild tribes of the plains to come in and participate in the ad vantages of those who had preceded them in civilization. The Commisbioners say that the project of inducing these wild Indians to come tinder the care of the civilized tribes, through the instrumentality of the latter, in co-operation with the wnite peouie, lojks already very encouraging; and they believe that its success will tend greatly to solve the Indian problem and to put'an end to future Indian troubles on our extreme borders. There is a very serious danger, however, which threatens the success of the schema from which the coinwisaiouers Anticipate such cheering results. This is the greed and injustice of the white men, who seem to think that the Indians have no rights that tho whites are bound to respect. From various sources we learn that in the region bordering on the Indian Territory, and even far up ia the Northwestern States, it is the prevalent opi nion among all claques that the 'lYrri'ory should be thrown open to hettk-n. au I tUi Indiana confined to as limited reservrtions as the homestead laws wonld allow to an equal number of whites. The facts that the lands have been ceded to the Indians in perpetuity by solemn treaty stipulations, and that they were occupied by them at a time when no white man would have dared to live there, are not considered of any consequence by the railroad monopolists and unscrupulous specu lators who are coveting their property; and it may be deemed a certainty that the most strenuous efforts will be made to wrest this rich domain from its owners, in utter disre gard of the pledged faith of our national Qov ernment. If this injustice Bhould be per mitted, it would be the crowning infamy of a long series of outrages perpetrated by a pow erful nation upon these weak and defenseless tribes. REMOVAL OF THE DUKE OF MECKLEN BURG A GLANCE AT THE MILITARY SITUATION. From the Ar. Y. Uerald. A correspondent at Versailles sends the information that it is reported at the head quarters of KiogWilliam that the Grand Duke of Mecklenburg has been summarily dismissed from his command. The Duke commanded the right wing of the army of Prince Fede rick Charles. The task assigned to that army was the annihilation of the Army of the Loire, if possible, but at all events to push it back, and thus reduce its chances of being able to give Paris the slightest assistance. In this, however, the Duke failed. It is plain, then, that this French army, whioh we were told by bulletins was badly beaten at Orleans, Beaune-la-Rolande and other points, cut in two, forced to retreat in a disorderly condi tion and almost completely "used up, "was in reality not so badly beaten after all; and as for being demoralized, the best answer to that allegation is to point out that, notwith standing all those disasters of which we have heard so much, the Army of the Loire was able to preserve the stores which had been accumulated for the relief of the capital. If more is needed to convince us that this "routed, demoralized and undisciplined army of Frenchmen" is not only a formidable force, but now a threatening fo roe, it is the re moval of the Grand Duke of Mecklenburg from his command for not being able to stay its advance. For some time past the Grand Duke and General Chanzy have been manoeuvring, with advantage accruing somewhat in favor of the French General. There is no impetu osity, no seeking after grand dramatio effects, no grand charges, as have in many campaigns distinguished French movements, but instead there is a steady, solid, almost slow move ment forward not at all palatable to the Ger man commander. France has now too much at stake, and from the very nature of circum stances must act with the greatest caution The life of the nation is set upon a cast which the French armies must shortly throw. The French Generals appear to realize this, and are acting accordingly. It may seem a little strange at first sight that the Germans do not pursue the same polioy which rendered their strategy so successful in the early por tion of the campaign. It now appears evident that the successes of the Red Prince and the Grand Duke and the Bavarians of Von der Tann did not accomplish as much as their royal master intended the world Bhould be lieve they achieved. We see no more of the hurling of heavy masses of troops against inferior bodies which snatched victory from the imperial forces of Napoleon. Suppose this plan were now attempted. Fancy that in order to crush Chanzy s force Prince Fred erick Charles marched to the assistance of Von der Tann, what might we reasonably an ticipate as a consequence of sucn a move ment? Bourbaki unwatched would most cer tainly advance and possibly appear some where close to Fontainebleau. The army of Bouibaki, with the late reinforcements which it has received from Marseilles, Lyons, and other points in the southeast of France, can not fall very far short of one hundred thou sand men a force, it will admitted, which requires watching. ltegarding the army commanded by Gene ral Chanzy, his force is vastly superior to that of the Grand Duke oi Mecklenburg, and is daily increasing in numbers, figuring up to between one hundred and twenty-five and one hundred and buy thousand men. It is the slow but steady approach of this large army to the investing lines around Paris which causes anxiety at the Prussian headquarters, and the inability to drive it back has lost, if report speaks truly, the Grand Duke nis command. It is noticeable, too, that the German soldiers have lost much of that vim and spirit which formerly distinguished them, lney nave grown tired and weary ot tne campaign and are anxious to return to their homes. In the next great battle near Paris, which we believe is imminent now that the Seine is frozen over, tnis lack or spirit may tell against the investing armies now threat- ening the capital of 1' ranee. WHY JOURNALISTS ARE SO MUCH RESPECTED. From the X. Y. Times. It appears that we are all strangely in the dark about the leading events of the war be tween Prussia and France. To begin with, the battle of Wissembourg, early in the war, was won by the French whereas most of ns thought that the Prussians were viotors. It is commonly supposed that MoMahon failed to effect a junction with the forces under Bazaine; but this is not the case the two Generals combined their armies, and are still fighting with great success. Again, it is generally believed that Bazaine was obliged to surrender at Metz; but this is merely another of our delusions the General . . . i 1 1 I, i in question lias won innuiueruuie great uai ties, and to this hour Metz has not surren dered. To take still another instance, there is an impression abroad that Paris is now in vested by the German armies. We eanaot account for the prevalence of this idea, but the truth is that the Germans are now dis tant at least ten days' march from Paris, and ine wuoie oi Trochu g army is posted out side the city. This version of the history of the war is furnished by the World, of thU city, which has the reputation of being ex ceeaingiy wen miormed on all foreign sub lects. We suppose there is no denvinor its statements. The Tribune on Tuesday gave a complete summary of the World' special history of the war, and people who colleot remarkable specimens oi journaustio enter prise had better get that summary, and learn to admire tne "brilliancy oi me world cor respondents and editors. The treatment of war news by the World is one of the things of which journalists ought to be proud, and which help to explain how it Lj that journal ism is so mvich respected by the public Another artiole. published by the Tribune on Tuesday, will also be interesting to jour nalihts who take a sincere pride in their call ing, and wish to see it universally respected. To begin with, the fact uiuut be well known that notoriously bribed journals always bring charges of corruption against all papers which try to do their duty honestly. Hence the W'vilJ, caurht with its h&nli full of Tweed's money, invented a story about an unpaid bill for the enormous sum of thir teen thousand dollars, as accounting for the opposition of the Timet to the ring; and hence the satellite of tne Ueraia, and a tew other unprincipled sheets, have been in structed by the ring to repeat this story ever since. The Tribune now expresses its belief that not less than $50,000 was paid by Tammany in one way or another to the Herald and the Telegram during last year alone. No one supposes that the proprietor of the Herald is aware of this turpitude on the part of his servants still less that he touched a dollar of the money. But the nature of the support given to the Tammany Ring by the Herald ought to be sufficient to oonvince everybody that dirty work has been going on somewhere. The Tribune goes on to assert, upon the authority of a pamphlet just published, that William M. Tweed secured the services of the Sun during the late canvass "by the payment of so much cash down and the promise of monthly stipends." What answer will be made to this charge remains to be seen; but we cannot ignore the fact that a similar accu sation brought against the Sun, in regard to a transaction with James Fisk, Jr., was pub lished in the Tribune a week or so a?o, and was not denied by the paper implicated. Instead of refuting the charge of taking a bribe for suppressing a certain article, as everybody must have hoped the Mun would do, it Bimply singled out and abused a gentle man connected with the Tribune. This was a clear case of allowing judgment to go against it by default. Ine s3-stematic corruption of the press by the Temmany and Erie cliques will begin to excite proper attention whenever the public once iuo'6 shows any disposition to regard corruption as a thing wrong in itselt, and fatal to the best interests of society. Any journalist who now faithfully performs his duty is made a marked man by all the bribed hacks in the country, and any paper which refuses to take bribes ia sure to be denounced as "corrupt" by the rascals who accept money from any hand which offers it, For example, the aocusations made by the J c-ma against Tweed and his gang have never been disproved, but the hirelings employed by Tweed have simply been in stiucted to trump np some insane charge concerning the motives of these attacks, There are possibly some who reolly believe that the World calls Tweed a swindler one day and an angel the next from sheer con viction, and that the Jimes would not abuse Tweed if somebody paid it thirteen thousand dollar?. People who put any faith in the World' 8 foreign despatches must be fools enough for anything. Thus, the task of serving the publio with fidelity is obstructed by the efforts of the very journals which have taken money to betray the publio. If tne exposures made by the Inbune on Tues day could accomplish a wholesome change in publio sentiment in regard to all journals bribed by the lammany gang; and if those exposures further tendt d to purify the atmo sphere of journalism general!?, our oontem porary would have accomplished a signal ser vice. JJut we tear mat the time is not vet ripe for reform, and that a great portion of the publio think none the worse of a jour nal because it is proved to have taken bribes. MEDICINE AND MERCHANDISE. From the N. Y. World. It appears that the question of medical education for women, after exciting the faculty of Edinburgh almost as much as it did the faculty of Philadelphia, has been finally settled by a decision of the corporation of tne former university, that although women may imbibe instruction they cannot take prizes, it is, according to the faculty, an admissible thing that women shoald con tribute to the support of their institution, but a grievous and intolerable thing that they should pront bv its endowments, and upon tms logical ground a scnolarsnip lias besn re fused to a woman who is admitted to have won it fairly. This decision is doubtless satisfactory to the male students, who would otherwise be in danger of seeing members of an inferior sex taking prizes away from them, and particularly to the male student npon whom it devolves by default the prize which a woman had won. But it is scarcely in accordance with anybody s notion of justice, and the ad voeates of it seem to have felt the need of an authority which should outweigh reason, when they invoked npon the discussion the declaration of her Majesty Queen Victoria "that she greatly disapproved of women studying medicine." By way of enforcing this august opinion the faculty decided by one vote not to prohibit women from the study of medicine in the university, which would involve the less of the fees derived from women, but only to prohibit women from receiving the prizes whioh proficiency in that study might entitle them to. Which is a frugal and "canny," whether or no it be a very high-minded, procedure on the part of tne faculty of Jdinburgo. The same mail which brought us this news brought us also an acoount, published in Sunday's World, of the adventures of an American woman in China. This heroic female person has penetrated the secular secrets of Cathay, and at the date of her letter was comfortably sojourning in the town of Chefoo, engaged in what has hitherto been considered the exclusively masculine f unotion of buying tea, rather than the chiefly fenii nine function of imbibing it. Whether the aspect of this American lady, who has tra vexsed the flowery Kingdom not only with out molestation, but, according to her own aocount, with great profit and satisfaction, is as alluring to the Chinese as that of the ven turesome virgin who traditionally traversed the Emerald Isle was to the Hibernian eye, we have no means of Knowing, any more than we have whether "rich and rare were the gems she wore," or whether she preferred to carry her valuables In the shape of tne nn obtrusive bill of exchange. In either case she is there buying tea, and fearing not the face of man, and it is to be hoped she may prosper. And we are not aware that before setting out she wished the advice of any male person or set of male persons as to the propriety of the course she was about to pursue. The moral to be drawn from a comparison of these two cases is that the sphere of women is to be ascertained not by argument but by trial. The Soottish women ask the acquit nee cf the faoulty in their studying medicine. The American woman does not ask the acauiescence of anybody in her buy ing tea. When the pupil of Squeers had at tained a theoretical knowledge of plants out of books, that prudent pedagogue sent him into the garden to cultivate the same, or, as Suueers himself condescended to explain, "he goes and knows 'em." When Mis King ha settled in her own mind the probable profit bl noss of buying tea, she goes and buys it. When, on tLe other hand, young women yearn to know medicine, they rite article j in newspapers and deliver lecture.- upon plat forms, and berate hidebound institutions of instruction in that science, in defense of their right to know it. They had much bet ter go end know it. "Nothing sncceedi like success." Nobody will deny the right to trade in tea to a woman who has made a fortune by it. And nobody will deny the right to be phy sicians to those women who may succeed in proving themselves competent ones. A few successful female tea merchants and a few successful female physicians will do more to wards dissipating whatever disbelief there may be of tho competency of women to those arts than the most extreme and irrefragable demonstrations a pi tori that it is the inalien able right and the peculiar province of women to heal the siok and to make fortunes in the Chinese trade.
