little ohnnge. King Willinnt doci (rot jet

Viotor Emanual has ' occupied ' Rome
and the Papal States, and approach ns the
Pope with shrewdness worthy of a politi-".
cian. He tells' His: Holiness that ha is
marching to take possession of Rome, not
out of any ill feeling loward the RomuB
8ee, but in order to protect : it against a
republican outbreak.- -"Any delay on my
part," says the King, "would havo ffeca
sioned tho proclamation of the republic in
every Italian city, and my army would
not have fought the republic." This
would have been fatal to the Papacy"-
How His Holiness Will take this smooth
apology remains to be seen ; but it is not
likely that he will thank the King for that
sort of protection which deprives him of
the temporal sovereignty that is so dear
to his heart: ' However,1 the medicine is
for his good, whether he likes to take it
or not. ': ' "' '" " ' '' ' "'

Napoleon's Overthrow.
On the fifteenth of last J uly the French
I Einperoron a Trivolous prefextj declared
Pn,la. ' The news awakened
the wildost enthusiasm throughout France.
The nation, .appeared to be eray. for far.
n ui Huuiuui-
With vastly exaggerated ideas of their
ownlnili tary "strongi h7 and" fa tariyunder-
1 ating that vl'Trussla. they looked forward
to a short, sharp, and decisive campaign
on Germuu 'soil, and to a peace, dictated
at Beriiu, 'which' should' make the Rhine
thp eastern boundary of the empireY Of
ficers, and priv4te soldiers, leaving Paris
for the frontier orderfld tkat after the,fit
teonth of August their letters bhoUld bo
directed 4o Berlin; andlMinister Olliver,
in the French Seuutoj announced that he
accepted the: war "with a light heart." ,,
il Npt so did Germany make answer.
t'God is my! witness," said King William
to the crowd assomblod 'to witness his de
parturtf from' Ems,' "that I have not de
sired war ;.i but if i I am fircod into it, I
will 'maintain the honor of Germany to
the last mail." ..: :.' i 1 ,
,ti His people responded -to these words
with a solemn.' and earnest enthusiasm, to
which a parallel can only be fonnd in the
great uprising of -tho North after ' the .fir
ing on Sumter.. - Minor differences and
petty jealousies .were' forgotton. "'''The
whole. nation rose, like a strong man from
sleep ; and, before the vacillating Emper
or was 'prepared to strike a blow nearly
a. million of soldiers stood guard upon the
Rhiue. .it - ''
We need not reooiint the marvelous
campaign that followed,' unparalled in the
history of 'tho world.: In less than fifty
days: 'after tho declaration of war :and
loss than forty of actual fighting the
militury pride of France buffered humilia
tion in A dozen defeats j' the 'capital is
threatened, and iu a state of siege'; one
great ormy, defeated in a long series of
terrible battles, is shut up helpless within
the fortifications of Metz;1 onother, num.
bering a HSmdred thousand men the larg
est mimbor that ever capitulated at ono
time has been surrendered by its com
mandcr; the Prince Imperial and the Em-
poror are prisoners !
Well may tho Victorious King exclaim,
in his modest despatch to the Queen :
'Wrhat a course, under, the guidance of
God. events have taken !" '
It were useless, when great events tread
so rapidly on each other's heels! to specu
late on the" probable results of this crown
ing victory of the Prussian- ar-ns, or to
discuss the causes o" the French defeat.
There seems to be no doubt that Nupoleou
wjs the victim of gross frauds and deccp-
tion from tho first. His immense vormies
existed only on pnper. The military con
dition of the empire Was thoroughly rot
ton. : Had1 the Emperor 'been- earlier
aware of these facts he would hot have
ventured upon the war; but, unfortunate
ly fir him,' ho first becamo awa'e of thcra
after war hadl been declared.'" Ho then,
as is well known, endeavored to open ne
gotiations with' ' Prussia but Count Bis
marck 6teruly replied it was ," too late."
Unable to tako the initiative, Napoleon
found himt-clf scarcely prepared to stand
on the defensive, ' and tho terrible blpw
that crushed McMuhou's army at Weiss
enfcurg virtually decided tho struggle.
Yet the soldiers of France never fought
more gallantly than, at Weissenburg, Gra.
velotto ani Sudan. Tlicy have' incurred
no disgrace 'in .these terrible :' defeats'.
They have succumbed to vastly prepond
erating numbers, hided by bad generalship
on the part of their commanders in tie first
weeks of tho war. "' ' ' " "'" ' '' " "
If all thii shall bring peace to Europe
anu a siaoie government to r ranee, really
founded on tho will of the1 nition and not
in fraud.tho world will have good reason
to rejoice bveF " the result of this wonder
ful campaign. ,"' " " '

But what of the Emperor?-what of
the Prince Imperial ? and what of the
chanoes for Bonapartism in the Eraace of
the future?
1 One would suppose that France, by this
ffmeTm iist be quite ciireJ of TiiiperialTsm.
Had the Emperor, who has brought this
humiliation upon ' the proudest niijitary
people of Europe, shown a spark of moral
or physical heroism in the present atrug-
erf it niiiht have been otherwise. Bui
he bas made respect,' and even sympathy,
impossible. Incapable in civil' affairs, a
blunderer and Worse thin charlutan in
war, his fate excites hone of the commis

So wrote Lord Byron of the first Napol
eon, and the words are still more applica
ble to the third. The fatal glamour of
the name, let us hope, is broken forever,
and with it the power of "personal gov
ernment" in Europe , .. ; !..
Neither the continuance of the Napol
eonic dynasty on the ,. throne of Prance
nor the restoration of the Orleans family
would secure a permanent peace. . Notlv
ing will do this but a representative cou
titutipnal government, based on tho intel
ligent consent of tho people.

to .the Germaus, of which the following is
an extract: " ' " ' ' '
