It was not our opinion when the late FrancoGerman
war was brought to a close that ait
irritating questions?questions likely to lead
to fresh conflict?had been removed out of the
way. The time which has since elapsed has
net given us much encouragement to change
our mind. The result of the war has undoubtedly
been a gain to the general cause of
progress. Germany has so far been made a
unit; and the forces at work are such that
complete consolidation may now be confidently
looked for at no distant day. France
has been so crippled that for some years at
least it will not be possible for her singlehanded
to make war on a large scale with
any of her neighbors. At the same time it is
not to be denied that many grave questions
remain unsettled; and he would be a bold ^
man wiio would say that war ou some of those
questions might not result at almost any
Our special correspondence from Salzburg 1

scale. Germany and Austria are said to be (
the objects of attack. It Is not to bo denied
tbat this pieoe or news has fallen upon us
rather by surprise. We were not quite prepared
for such a combination. That there
were good reasons for such an alliance we
were not ignorant; but the time for forming
it, so far as we could see, had not yet come.
If it be a fact that Eus sia and France have
come to a tormal understanding, and if they
really mean war, and Immediate war, we may
rest assured that Russia and France know
what they are doing. We have said already
that France, single-handed, is quite unfit for
years to come to undertake war on a lar^e
scale. But France in alliance with a Power
like Russia can, crippled as she is, do
great things. She is burdened with a groat
sorrow ; and sorrow, as we all know, sometimes
gives strength. She has a revenge to
accomplish; and revjnge is sweet. She has
soldiers and munitions of war in abundance,
and she is most willing to use them, If only she
Could see Lerwav towards the retrievement
of her fortune. If It seems desperate to some
people for France to rush headlong Into
another war, let it be remembered that France
is desperate; and desperate people and desperate
nations, as we know, do desperate
things. With Russia for an ally Franco might
recover Alsace and Lorraiue; she mi^ht
also?and this is more important'still?recover
somewhat of her lost glory. She might fail,
and thus aggravate her misfortune?. But in
the state of mind in which the French people
now are one ray of hope, one shadow of a
possibility is sufficient to induce them to run
all risks, to brave all danger. In the event of
defeat France has much to bs3. In the event
of success she has much to win. The possibility
of winning is what makes feasible the
rumored alliance.
How is it with Russia? We know that
Russia, In spite of outward appearances to tho
contrary, likes not her new and dangerously
powerful neighbor. Tlie continued success of
the ambitious policy o! Prussia is fraught with
great danger to the Russian empire. The
population of her Baltic provinces is already
impatient of her yoke ; and the German people
already clamor for their deliverance. The
loss of the Baltic provinces would practically
make the Baltic Sea a German lake. This,
however, is not all. Russia, in spite of the
Crimean war, still believes it to be her destiny
to Bit in pride on the Golden Horn. Tue rapid
development of the German power disturbs her
traditional dream. The conquest and occupation
of Constantinople are made less possible
than ever. Austria and Germany, much to
the surprise of Ruasia, have come to a good
understanding, and Russia begins to fear that
what Germany has done to France she may
soon do to herself. She feela that new Germany
is hurting her interests and crossing her
path. What hope is there that if she waits she
will gain? There is none. Delay but gives
Germany time to gather strength, to mature
her plans and to proclaim herself the mistress
of Europe. If action must be taken it cannot
be taken too soon. The policy of the Great
Teter and the Great Catherine is in danget;
and Russia feela and confesses that delay is
We are not, therefore, prepared to discredit
this latest European rumor. We are the less
disposed to discredit it, that we have not forgotten
M. Thiers' wild and despairing tour
through Europe before the surrender of Paris.
We know that offers were made to Russia
then?offers which were flattering in the last
degree to Russian vanity and Russian ambition.
Had M. Thiers been possessed (hen of
the power which now he wields there can be
no doubt that his offers would have been accepted.
M. Thiers is the Chief of the Executive
of the French nation. What he offers now he
can give. What he promises be cau fulfil. Is
It impossible that the astute Gortchakoff has
reminded him of what he Raid on the occasion
of his recent visi* to St. Petersburg, and that
Thiers, standing true to his word, this rumored
alliance Ib the result ? We are the more disposed
to give credence to the report that we
now know?thanks to the ex-Empress Eugenie?that
but for the revolution which took
place in Paris Rissia was prepared to intorTcre
and save France after Sedan. It was not

France should be dismembered. Russia knew
well then?Bhe knows well now?that the Tall
of France was loss rather than gain to her.
In the event of tbis alliance proving to be
fact, what will be the programme ? Russia,
of course, will seek Constantinople. France
will march her troops into Alsace and Lorraine
; and probably she will be daring
enough to carry the war in?o Germany. Great
Britain will hurry her iron-clads to the coast
of Egypt; and, in the event of Russia crossing
the Prutb, sho will occupy Alexandria
and Cairo and Suez. If France is strong
enough she will march an army across the
Alps and attempt, at least, to reinstate the
rope. But Italy is united and strong, and
Franco will find it hard to fight with Germany
in tue Nui't'j and with Italy in the 3<juUi. if
(ioinrtny and Austria should win Europe

Power will be Germany. Russia will find It
convenient to shut herself up in the icy regions
of the North. France will be hopelessly
ruined. Austria may cease to be; but
Francis Joseph will become tbe chief of a new
empire on the liue of the Danube?an empire
which may yet have its headquarters in the
city of Constantino. Great Britain will settle
down to the enjoyment of those Asiatic dignities
of which Mr. Disraeli is so fond; and
who shall say that the author of the
"Wondrous Tale of Alroy" may not be the
Governor General of Egypt? This development
is full of Interest.
The ('okl? New* from France.
It ia announced that tbe negotiations between
Versailles and Berlin for tho complete
evacuation of France have led to a successful
result. All the German troops will have
left French territory before the end of
the present year. The people of France
will be supremely glad to be rid of tho
galling presence of their conquerors, and
M. Thiers bns done well to make some
concessions in order to attain this end. The
feeling of the French toward their victors has
been well expressed in ono of the caricatures
jf Charivari, where a German is represented
bidding adieu to a wounded French soldier.
''Not adieu," says the latter, "but au reroir.
Such visits are always returned." It Is
certainly with the view of returning one
day the compliment of the German visit In
France that be advocates large armaments
and the maintenance of an effective force of
Ave hundred thousand man. Thiers is a
diplomatist of the old sohool; he believos
in the balance of power and
in Muchiavelli's system of statesmanship.
As a patriotic frenchman ne also desires to
see Alsace ami Lorraine yet restored in bis
lifetime. Hence the alleged alliance of Fiance
with Russia and the maintenance of so large
an army.
In the National Assembly a motion was
submitted that the Councils General should
be spontaneously assembled in case of
the overthrow of the government. The pr6position
will probably be rejected, bat it does
not urgue well for the stability of the present
government that such a notion should ever
have been possible. Tbere can be no doubt
that M. Thiers will be elected President for
another term. The question now remains
whether his powers are to be prolonged
for two years or tbiee year?.
According to our despatch M. Thiers
is no longer in the good graces of the party of
the Kight, which is only inclined to exteud
hTs powers over a period of two years; byj,
there seems to be a considerable majority in
favor of tha longer term.
Tk? AlnnifPMlo of AInzztaf.
We publish elsewhere in the Hei?am> this
morning a document addressed by Mazzini to
the workingmsn of Italy. It is remarkable
for its apparent thoughtfulness and common
senso. He advises his countrymen to keep
aloof from the International Society or Workingmen?au
organization which he affects to
despise, denounces as impracticable in its
aims and wanting in elements which could
make it successful. Irreligious, devoid of
nationality and false in its teachings regarding
the acquisition of wealth or the holding
of property, this society, which
aims to control a rant multitude, must,
according to Mazziai, fail. It is
even now, lie contonds, on the wane
in England. Dr. Carl Marx, whom the Italian
patriot regards as the soul of the International,
is a man of acute genius, of domineering
temper, jealous of the influence of every
body else, without religious or philosophical
convictions, and with more of the elements
of hate than love in his heart. In this portrait
of the German radical, drawn by the
Italian revolutionist, we think we perceive the
incentive for the attack on the International.
Without sympathy for the cause which the
International espouses, and with an unbiassed
estimate of Mazzini, it appears
to us that the very jealousy which
Mazzini imputes to Marx is experienced in a
very great degree by Mazzini, aud his address
to the workinginen of Italy is not meant so
much as an honest expression of feeling for the
welfare of his countrymen, in the light in which
ilis written, as it is an attack on the International
Society, which, possibly, he finds he
cannot control. It is rather late in the day for
Mazzini to counsel moderation iu morality, religion
or politics. Men, however, have changed
their views ere now, and possibly Mazzini's
long experience In "ways that are dark and
tricks that are vain" may have opened his eyes
to the errors of his past life.
Tur Ballot Bill, or the bill lately passed
bv the House of Commons to establish the
American system of voting by ballot in the
British islands, has been defeated in "the
Lords" by a majority of forty-nine. This
makes it necessary for the Commons to try it
again, and yet again and again, if required, to
bring "the Lords" to a concurrence. The
measure is good, it is popular, and it is a progressive
measure; and it will be fought
through "the Lords." They think it a bad
beginning; but if they continue intractable
they will next discover that "worse remains
behind." It Is perfectly natural that they
should stoutly contest every encroachment
upon their old feudal rights and usages ; bnt
the "irrepressible conflict" is fairly under
way, and those ol<l feudal institutions of England
are bound to go. The full blaze of the
nineteenth century Is upon them, and they
cannot survive it much longer.

of the Alabama has to do with the amnesty
to the rebel Stales, and to our mind

JItDAY, AUGUST 12. 1871,
The ComIum Iinliau PhvuiIi?"Jive nn<l
The proposed public procession in honor of
the unification of Italy and the occupation of
Koine is to take place on the 2"?lh of August.
Representatives of the grand Italian Union
from all parla of the United .States aud Canada
will be present, and invitations have been issued
to our military and civic societies to take
part in the demonstration. Several of the German
gymnastic associations?the fighting Teutons
of the city?have already accepted these
friendly overtures. There can be no doubt
that the parade will be one of the most
significant that has evar taken place in America,
and we should not be surprised if it
were also the most imposing we have seen
since the close of the war, if we except the
German peaca celebration last spring.
We are sorrv to hear that evil-minded ner
sous ure spreading nbroad reports that this
demonstration ia to ba interfered willi. We
are sure that these rumora have not the
ali^htctfC foundation in truth, but they are
none the less mischievous. The ll'th ol' July
settled onoe and forevor the right of nil
American cilia >us to express in any manner,
not specially insulting and offensive, their
political or roligious opinions. The people
have already spoken upon this matter, and, in
the face of the unanimous verdict thus rendered,
we are convinced that no opposition
will be offered to any parade of any kind.
No considerable element of our population
can possibly be bo ignorant and so stupid as
to dream of contesting a right established by
an outbreak of public feeling so full of meaning
and so completely conclusive.
The grand lesson of the last riot has been
the vindication of the American principle of
"live and let live." We have existed now as
a people in the colonial and independent
epochs of our annals for two or three hundred
years, and during that time streams of emigrants
of all nationalities and of every shade
of religious faith have poured into thia broad

luve peacefully, side by side, built up tlie
greatest and most powerful government on
the face of the earth. The Know Nothing
excitement was a sad, but foitunately only a
transient episode, in this evcutful and imposing
triumph of just and truthful political
principles. God forbid that any cloud of
prejudice or distrust springing from creed or
birth should spread a baleful gloom over our
ripening future!
As to this demonstration in particular we
have this much to say. Italy is the motherland
of the Catholic faitli, and Italians?whatever
else they may be?are more thoroughly
imbued by the tradition pf ^rt and the instincts
of race with loyalty to the?
the Catholic Church than any other civilized
people. Respect for the venerable forms of
the most ancient Christian communion on
earth is inwoven with every fibre of their
being, and their national prido is tl ittered by
the fact that men of their own blood have for
many generations filled the Chair of the
Papacy. If, then, they huve deemed
it wine to overturn what some few
may think an essential adjunct to
the dignity and independence of the
Holy Sec, their opinions are entitled to universal
respect. Most of the most violent ad
vocau'H ui 1110 occupation 01 nome win live
I and die true to the forms of piety that prevail
in the Latin Church. They have been auimated
in this last revolution not by religious
prejudice, but by a noble, if mistaken, devotion
to political principle. And they are applauded
in Europe by a clear majority of the
Catholic masses. Spain and Austria, the
strongholds of Catholic doctrine, have accepted
cheerfully this new departure. We
trust it is not reserved for America to be the
scene of a bloody and foolish revolt against
the utterance, in word or deed, of this same
That all men should think alike in religion
or in politics cannot be hoped for. But that
Jones differs from Robinson about prayer to
the saints or the prerogatives of the Pope
need not make them bitter enemies. Education
and freedom should surely bear less bitter
fruit than that. Again we say, "Live and
let live." Let us all be true to that standard
of nobleness and virtue that Protestant and
Catholic alike hold to be the guide of all true
and earnest living. Let us, above all, be trno
to our American citizenship, with its glorious
traditions of tolorance and forbearance, and
we shall still be a free, great and homogeneous
people in nil that concerns us as a nation.
Let us agree to disagree.

We have before us a communication from an
intelligent citizen, in which, after referring to
our late editorial mention of Raspail's opinion
that tbe Asiatic cholera is an animalcule
disease, our witness on the subject pays:?
"This theory of Raspail, I think, will ultimately
prove correct. In the years 184N and
J8,i0, during the ravages of the cholera in the
West Indies, I found, on examining microscopically
the water of the localities where
the disease existed, that it was impregnated
with animalculic foreign to tbe place, which
disappeared simnltaneously with the disease.
These animalculte would die when placed itx
contact with camphor, which seomod to be to
them ft deadly poison." This is strong circumstantial
evidence in support of Raspail,
and we are almost cortain that a thorough
microscopical investigation, not only of the
water in localities affected, but of the evacuations
of a sufferer from this pestilence of the
Ganges, would establish the fact that the disease
is caused, propagated and diffused by
Should the cholera again visit our shores
our correspondent recommends the following
preventive, and says that it will be found of
great value, as he has seen it successfully applied:?"All
water for drluking purposes
should be well boiled and kept tightly
covered { for it is In the water whore the
greater number of animalcule are found. We
should also carefully abstain froin all liquids
which have not been thoroughly purified by
fire. A judicious line, internally, of a few
drops of spirits of camphor, daily, destroys
the animalculm as fust ns thoy enter the system,
thereby arresting tho disease." It will
thus bo seen that our correspondent in tho
premises m fully convinced that the animalculm
theory solves tho mystery as to the real
chitiacuw v! Aijiatto ucstilenoo; and the
testimony h.? Daa given us trom his own obser.
rations upon the subject is entitled to the
special attention of scientific men in Europe,
who now have the opportunity for the full investigation
we have suggested.
Skorbtaky Bodtwkli. has given notice that
arrangements have been made for the disposal
of the remainder of his bonds offered in February
last?-being about one hundred and thirty
million dollars?subject to the condition tuat
within sixty days the national banks shall have
me prmiege 01 subscribing in a sum or sums
to an amount not exceeding fifty million dollars.
Meantime tbe designated agents for the
sale of tbe aforesaid bonds are limited to the
sale of equal amounts of the four and a half

four and tire per cent bonds. So it will bo
seen that the national Treasury goes on swimmingly.
One ok the Fulton Ferryboats now
running regularly has a frame hanging up in

Why is this^ The bare back board of the

as if the company meant to say, "We have uo

don't care if you know it." Are the ferryboats
allowed to run without a ceitifieete, and are
they not compelled by law to plaoe a certificate

as to the right or a claimant, under the Mining act,
to a patent for a mineral lode beneath the town

that where an adverse claim to mi application ror a
