GERMAXY AKD ALSAOE. ... From Ite London Saturday JlevUie . Germany bas at last rot Elsara and as moon of Lothringen as she chose to take, and, hav ing got them, she has 'now to povern them and make thorn her own. It ta one of the moot curious and interesting experiments in the art of government that this modern world has teen. Elsass cannot forget the days when it was Alsace. In some unpleasant and unaccountable manner it cares mora for Fraace than it does for Germany, and tram plea on history, and ignores race, and pro tests against the results of the war. For a wonder, it aotnally in the nineteenth century is sot on the side of success. Naturally the ' French, who ' have not much to be proud ' of just no, are very proud of this; for there is no dispute about the fact. Prince Bismarck, who at least has the merit of supreme frankness, allows his ceuntrymen to foster no illusions on the matter. Elsass rejects its historical mother, and clings to its naughty, unfortunate, suffer ing nurse. But the Germans are not to be baffled easily. They have set themselves so to govern Alsace that the day shall come when its French sympathies will have died away, and it will know and think of nothing but Germany. How this is to be done is a great problem in government, and the mode in which the problem is sought to be practically solved is worth the most attentive study. An excellent description of the Ger man rule in Alsace has been given under the signature of Albert Dumont in the last num ber of the licvue des Deux Mondes. Of course it is written from the French point of view. The writer exults in the failure which the Germans have hitherto had to encounter. But it does not appear to be an unfair account of what has happened, for the author renders ample justice to the mixture of indulgence and firmness which the GermanB have dis- Elayed. His triumph would not, in fact, be alf what it is if he blackened the character of the conquerors, or spoke of them as men without skill and without a knowledge of the arts of empire. What delights him is that, in spite of all the pains they have taken to apply the most judicious mixture of harsh ness and lenity, in spite of their knowing everything, foreseeing everything, bearing and forbearing largely and long, Elsass can not abide them, has not the slightest wish to belong to Germany, and pines for the day when it shall be once more Alsace. Immediately after the battles of Weissem burg and Woerth, Alsaoe and German Lor raine were seized on as part of Germany. Every minute detail had been foreseen, and the exact frontier line had been studiously traced long before by German patience and skill. This new part of Germany was at once governed as if it were part of Germany. It was never treated as the districts of France were treated that were occupied by the Ger man armies. . Strasburg was indeed bom barded, and M. Dumont represents the Alsa tians as resenting the needless cruelty of the bombardment. It was quite certain that Strasburg must yield directly the pa rallels were poshed far enough,: and the French ' garrison had no means of preventing the besiegers from making their approaches. The bombardment did no good to the enemy, while it inflicted infinite misery on the inhabitants. But how ever true this may have been, it is not pre tended that the people of Strasburg would have looked with any more favor on their conquerors if they had not been bombarded; so that the objeotion to the bombardment is , the general objection that all bombardments are useless, rather than that the Ger mans were unwise in adding this to the other causes of the antipathy of Alsace. When Strasburg came into their hands the Germans fixed there the seat of their administration. A regular machinery for governing the pro vince was instituted, and the new authorities set themselves to the double task of making it understood that the Germans were the true friends of Alsace, and of re pressing every sign of sympathy for France. The Count of Bismarck-Bohlen was appointed Governor, and although M. Dumont sneers at his piety, he unhesitatingly confesses that the Count showed himself most amiable, considerate, and polite. His subor dinates worked in the same spirit. But Ger man politeness is consistent with displays of the utmost rigor when rigor seems necessary, and very harsh measures were taken to inspire a wholesome dread of counteracting the plans of the conquerors. It was declared to be a matter of honor with all functionaries that they should work on behalf of Germany as if they were GermanB. They were expected to afford every facility to the military operations of the Germans, and to do everything to baffle the possible military operations of the French. No one was allowed to pass out of the commune without special permission. All arms were sought for and taken away. The local newspapers were entirely sup pressed; and , ladies who dared to sing un-German songs, or play nn-German music, were at onoe arrested. Even the children were not allowed to play at fames which gave offense to the authorities, t was discovered that the Alsatians spoke a patois unintelligible to Germans, but they were at once to be made to speak good Ger man, and French was utterly forbidden in all Bchools and official places as the language to be employed. On the other hand, there was an appearance of much kindness and consid eration. Borne at least of the French officials who were dispossessed were allowed to retire on a pension of the full amount of their salary, and the ordinary taxation of Alsace was not increased beyond what it had been before the war. Every effort was made to prove that the inhabitants of the province had better ac cept what was inevitable, and that the Germans meant well by them. In ahort, as M. Dumont justly says, both on the aide of harshness and on the side of leniency, Alsace and German Lorraine were treated neither better nor worse than Hanover was treated during and immediately after the war of 18C6. German government, with its many forms of unpleasantness, was brought to bear on them, but still they were treated as part of Germany. Nevertheless, Alsace was neither , to be terrified nor per suaded. It remained absolutely t rencn. in spite of the severe decrees directed not only aeainst those who joined the French armies, but against their families, 17,000 Alsatians managed to enroll themselves in the new levies of France. The judges of the high courts, the professors of the upper schools. preferred destitution to compliance with the wishes of their new masters. All civil causes had to be adjourned, and German teachers had to be imported. The women persisted in dressing in mourning, and no German offi cer was received in private Bociety. M. Du mont even informs us that tne common peo pie were suddenly seized with a passion for secretly learning and speaking French. Every subterfuge was resorted to in order to escape the payment of taxts and lessen the receipts of the German excnequer. At last came tne elec tions in Februarv to the French Assembly, and the Germans, under the direction of Vrim-fl Bismarck, abstained from all inter i t-renaa in them. The true Bentiments of Albaoe were freely manifested, and they chose without exception either local patriots de voted to France, or national celebrities like Gambetta or. Jules .Favre. The Germans, although ' they' did not Interfere with the voting, prohibited all canvassing or any pub lication of , lists of candidates; so that it was impossible to regard the result of the elec tions as the work of an active Frenoh clique. It was the expression of the intense desire of tl : Alsatians to be French, and of their reso lution to make their real wishes known to all the world at, the very moment when it was obvious they were about fically to cease to be1 French. ' One of the deputies they elected. . a popular provincial, who had been Mayor of Strasburg at the time of ' the siege, happened to die at Bordeaux. His remains were brought to Strasburg, and his funeral afforded the Alsatians a last oppor tunity of showing their persistent sympathy with a man who had never faltered in his attachment to France. He is recorded to have declared shortly before his death that although he Baw how great would be the material advantages to Alsace in becoming German, and although he recognized the con summate skill of the Germans in administra tion, yet there was to his mind something in France which was more to him than all that Germany had to offer. It is perfectly legiti mate that Frenchmen should glory in such utterances. France, impoverished, humiliated, torn by civil war, has still an nndefinable charm, and can still appeal to the hearts and imagination of men. In order to estimate rightly the place f France in Europe, it is as necessary to boar this in mind as to dwell on the gigantic blunders it has recently committed, and on the national short comings indicated by the events of the war, and by the sad story of the reign and the suppression of the Commune. No one knows better than Prince Bismarck how great are the difficulties which the love of Alsace for France throws in the way of Ger man statesmen; and no one can be more anxious that what he sees all Germans should Bee also. He has recently strained his great personal influence and authority to the utmost, in order to induce the German Par liament to abstain from subjecting the new provinces too quickly and vigorously to a German Government of the usual type. He bas obtained liberty to manage them exactly as he pleases until the beginning of 1873. He has begun by accepting the payment of a portion of the first instalment of the Frenoh indemnity in notes of the Bank of Franoe, in order that he may have immediate funds for the wants of Elsass and Lorraine, where these notes are familiar to the people. On the other hand, 'an edict has been issued enforcing" universal compulsory education, after the German pattern, on every child above the age of six years. The two instruments of government to which he trusts are the bestowal of material advan tages on this generation and the training of the next generation. Above all, he looks to the working of the cenviotios that the fate of Elsass is fixed, and that nothing that can be said or done will make it anything but Ger man. How far he may succeed no one can say as yet, but it is evident that, unless a success almost beyond hope attends his efforts, Elsass and Lothringen will long be as much estranged from the German Father land as the Poles of Posen are from Prussia, or the Czechs of Bohemia from Austria.
