THE armistice: dispute.
Of course we havo two different sions of the cause of the late rupture in negotiations—one tinged with German f rejudice, the other tinged with French 'artisans of the Prussian cause accept the former interpretation, and cry out against the " folly of France;" partisans uf the French cause accept the Paris version, and denounce the "duplicity of Prussia." But it seoms to us that the opposite ac counts, while differing on slight and im material particulars, ngree at bottom so thoroughly that candid criticism can ar me at a tolerably just view of exactly how and why the armistice failed. Wo have, this morning, to begin with, the explanation of Bismark. In plain language, this explanation declares that the German offer was only of an armistice "on the basis of the shitus quo" —which, accordingly, must be held to mean that the Germans only proposed to stop hos tilities for a time, leaving everything pre cisely as at the beginning of tho truce. This proposition M. Thiers, according to Bismark, rejected. In this cautious nooncement, however, we have nothing whatever said about tho revictualling of Paris, or free egress and ingress through the German lines. For information these points we must go to the French ac counts, which declares that "at the final interview between Count von Bismark and Jules Favre, tho former fur tho first time declared that ho would not consent to the admission of food into Paris during the truce. The provisional France refused to consent to without this condition, which Biomark Lad intimated would bo granted." we have already said, nothing in Bismark's account ooutradicts the French state which may therefore be taken as true. In addition, wc have an unofficial G dispatch from Versailles, declaring that Thiers declined to conclude an armistice " on the basis that tho present status con tinue four weeks—he had no eijuivalcut to offer for tho provisioning of Paris, which consequently conhi mil In: conced ed.' vor an on government of au armistice As ■ut, ermnn But did Prussia suggest any " e quivalent?" According to ouc authority .she did suggest the " possession of certain forts around Paris"—upon which coul, not to say insolent, demand, negotiations suddenly stopped. Here, thou, we have a clear story made >up from the partial accounts of both bel ligerents. It appears that Prussia said, on the application of M. Thiers, that she •would grant an armistice of four weeks, on condition that everything should re main in its present condition. Thiers must then have replied that everything oould not remain in its present condition, because the reduction of Paris would probably bo effected, if at all, hy starva tion, and the lapse of four weeks brought the city so much nearer to that point, un less four weeks' provisions were allowed to enter. Bismark replied, doubtless, that rovictualliug the city was a military, not a political concession, and must be met by ono of tbe same kind. It would, perhaps, have been possible for Thiers to offer tho unimpeded approach of the army nf Frederick Charles and tho cessation ot •attacks on trains of siege guns and sup plies. But, whether this was mot, it certainly was not accepted as a fair equivalent; and, to say the truth, so ut terly safe, thus far, have been the Ger man communications, whether from Bour baki, Garibalda or any of the numerous people who were going to essay bold raids upon them, that we can hardly wonder that thie proposal should bo rejected—if ever offered—os a " military equivalen t" Hence we may conclude that the first story of a German offer to allow a day's rations to pass iuto Paris ou each day of -the armistice was not truo. No such stip ulation was agreed to. It i3 not surpris ing, therefore, that Paris ahold have re jected the Prussian proposal, if she still contemplated carrying on the war. Four weeke more would see he provisions nearly exhausted, and nothing would be gained but a political election. Thus, independent of tho questions a .bout the elections in Alsace and Lorraine •(regarding which tho two accounts differ much), tho dispute connected with the of Paris was, obviously, There ffercu or provisioning »enough to break off negotiations, jnever, indeed, seems to have been a gen >uine, hearty desire for an armistice on The Fronch government, as cither side. ■the Vienna Correspondence well say, act ed as if it were unconscious of ils defeat ; " its tone and inanuer are the same they would have been if the French army .had been victorious, aud now before the .city of Berlin." .much the brag and froth of the Paris reds, hut the Tours government looked coldly on the armistice from the first ; Favre laid down as a condition that no truce should contemplate the cession of iterritory ; aud Gambetta received or pre tended to receive, objections to the ar mistice from all parts of France. But, on the Prussian part, there was much greater apathy regarding the armis tice— indeed all Bismark's conduct looks like shamming. The North Ger cellor, whose diplomacy has been the least double-faced and the most frankly auda cious in history, niUBt be cautiously ac cused of anything like duplicity; but it does seem ns if, for once, he had nt least jtfiayed upon the credulity of the French ^negotiators, and allowed them to hope for terms which he pever designed to grant It ia true that Bismark has never yet found it necessary to resort ovei) to tem porary deception ; it is also true that the French havo shown an extraordinary ca pacity for misinterpreting cautious state ments just the way they want thorn, and afterward complain of the " duplicity" of the Qth«r party ; still, wo cannot account for the fact that so straightforward a states man as Favre, so experienced a diplomat as Thiers, and so blunt, far-seeing and hard headed a soldier as Trochu should;ali;havc so far misunderstood Bismark nf them did— that the Germans had uncondi tionally agreed to allow provisions to enter Paris during the armistice ; they must have felt that, when this supposed concession was coupled witli a demand for shape of a surrendered fort, ttiey had been trifled with.—/'/, tin■ Record , Nov. 9.
