For years, for generations we might say,
wee of the great problems of European
Cabinets has been bow to m' et the expen
ditures of civil government. Within the
last two centuries national debts first came
into existence, with all the elaborate fin
ancial machinery necessary to work thet.
But, once begun, they have grown with
mersemos rapidity. At the accession of
Willism of Orange, the national debt of
Aret$ Britain, the first, we believe, to
agete one, and still enjoying the excep
Ulomal distinction of possession the largest
em the globe, was about five and a half mil
lions. The Bank of England grew out of
these national obligations, and still man
ages the fund, whose evils it was brought
Iato existence to mitigate. But if it was
elow to come into being, it sprung rapidly
iate appaling proportions. The expensive
war of Queen Anne in the effort to pre
veat the union of the French and Spanish
crowns by the suceession to the crown of
fipain of Philip of Anjou increased it enor
asously, and the almost continuous bostili
ty existing. between France and England
daring well nigh the whole of the reign of
George II. brought it up at the close of
the war in 1760 to £ 122,000,000. The loss
of the American Colonies in the war of in
dependence added £220,000.000 and the
dlose of the campaign of Waterloo witness
ed the unprecedented indebtedness of over
£840,000,000, though this has since been
reduced to something like £700,000,000.
Exclusive of terminable annuities more
than onethird of the vast annual revenue
tf £70,000,000 is consumed in paying the
interest even at the low average rate of
three and a half pi Fent.
France owes the revolution of 1789 to her
debt. The desperate condition of her fin
ances drove her to the verge of bankruptcy,
to avoid which the States-General was
called. The pecuniary necessities of the
sation had made her exactions rigorous.
The peasant and the merchant saw their
sevenues eaten up by the tax-gatherer, de
deitfollowed upon deficit till no resource
was left but to call together the long dis
eused Parliament. The result every one
knows. The upheaveal which followed
swept away both throne and Parliament,
concentrating power at last in the hands of
a despot who made the world tremble.
Pre-revolutionary debts were extinguished,
ard yet France to-day is second only to
Great Britain in the magnitude of her in
For years our debt was small-now it
ranks third in the list of national obliga
tions. Nineteen-twentieths of its total
was accumulated during our late unhappy
civil war, and, though in process of ex
tietion, many years must elapse before
we again enjoy the happy distinction o!
owing nothing. But our resources ara
targe, greater, prospectively, than all Eu
eape put together, and we can afford to
await their development.
oit , Austria, Italy and Spain all feel
the incubus of their national indebtedness.
Three out of the four have nore than once
hbeenin sore straits for money. Their an
nually deficient revenues have for years
tiven them to borrow at ruinous rates,
each successive war only plunging them
deeper and deeper in the manlstrom whence
they can scarcely ever hope to emerge.
Prussia alone, of all the Greet Powers,
has no debt or next to none. Her annual
esdinary expenditures are met out of the
current revenue, and when she engages in
war, the vanquished are required to pay
the cost of their own defeat. The Danish
gScleswig-Holstein war coast Prussia little.
the Austro-Prussian and the Franco-Prus
sian each nothing. The heavy indemni
ties levied upon the unfortunate losers,
more than compensated for the expendi
tares incurred in their vanquishment.
It is not what is actually expended in
time of war which impoverishes nations so
touch as the constant apprehension of war.
Wars are the episodes of national histgry.
It is the expenditure entailed in maintaYn
ing armies and navies which exhausts the
resources of nations, and paralyzes
them. Not to speak of the millions of
able-bodied men annually withdrawn from
Seoduction by mutual jealousies of nations,
annual outlay for their maintenance,
or ammunition, artillery, fire-arms, and
all the adjuncts of standing armies is sim
ply amazing. England, for example, spends
nearly .i20,0t)0,000 annually on her army
and navy. Suppose this were applied to
the reduction of her national debt, within
two generations we should see its extinc
tion. What that means the British tax
payer could tell us. France expends more
than England. Every nation in Europe is
strained to the girth to keep its peace es
tablishment up to the exigencies of war.
Prussia, as Count Von Moltke lately said
in his speech, or rather circular note, for
it was both, spends 170,(N)0,000 of thalers
to keep her army on a peace footing. The
aggrandizement of Germany, though she
abjures any intention of further territorial
acquisition, has increased the annual out
tay under which every European power
already groaned. Holland has begun to
repair her defenses; Belgium, looking to
the possibility of absorption, increases her
feeble reserves; )Denmark increases her
coasting vessels and fortinfies Zealand.
FPrance strains every nerve to be able to
letinto the field on a week's warning
,200,000 men, with a territorial reserve of
1,000,000, while Russia, overtopping all
others, has reorganized her army so as to
be able to bring into any future European
war 2,000,000 of armed soldiers. In this
enumeration no mention hlas been made of
Austria with her 900,000; Italy, impor
orislhd and subsisting on the confiscated
revenues of the chureb, with her 500,000.
For this state of things Count Moltke
proposes no remedy. He accepts the gen
eral armament of Europe, as a terrible
reality to be met by Prussia in the same
spirit. France arms, Prussia must not only
keep fully up to France but surpass her.
Russia feare perhaps for her Baltic pro
vin'ces, looks forwald to the possibility of
a disruption of the Ottoman Empire, to
possible complications with Austria and
determines to keep lher armament up to
maximum of Russian strength. Prussia
arms to meet all these conttngencies like
wise. Thus in the mad race for pIrospoc
tive supremacy and for prospective de
fense every nation in Europe groans
under the burdens imposed. If Prussia,
Anustria, Russia and England seriously de
aire the peace of Europe, why don't they
give Europe the best guarantee of peace by
cutting down their reepective armaments
Surely these four by the force of public
opinion could force France to forego her
thirst for vengeance, and sacrifice her vin
dictiveness for the common good. The
truth is no nation in Europe trusts its
neighbor, and notwithstandlog their pacific
professions, each distrusts the other. Mo
tual understandings for the preservation of
the peace can never amount to anything
till the public mind and the public con
science be educated up to the criminality
e of offensive war under any pretext.
Whether this can be done, or how it can
be done, we do not see. But this we know,
that if standnog armies and navies were
Smt down eighty per cent, men would be
richer, nations would be richer, millions of
b man lives saved from a life of indolence
and a death of violence, public debts ex
tinguished and public morality improved.
If Count Moltke can show us how this may
be done he will gain more glory and more
gratitude than by having shown us how
France and Austria were to be conqubred.
The Old Tatums of the Senate.
Col. Forsyth of the Mobile Register, who
f has been on a brief visit North, introduces
in one of his letters the following humorous
illustration, from Mr. Carl Schurz's recent
f great speech in the Senate:
f Mr. Schurs has made a masterly defence of
sound principles on this subject (Finances.)
His speech was so learned and exhaustive
that Morton was driven to sneer at his book
knowledge, and to attempt to ridicule the
written iisdom of mankind, when it is
quoted by a German Liberal. Mr. Schurz
could not reply to such conceit with Sena
torial argument. IIe did do it, however, in
a homely style of illustration that set the
Senate to laughing at the Indiana dema
f gogue. I do not think I can close this letter
more profitably than with an extract from
r his speech, in which he has given a name
to a new class of statesmen who will here
after be known as " The old Tatums of the
We have now among as a new school
of political economists who know better.
With the Senator from Indiana, they ex
claim : " Throw theory to the dogs," as he
said the other day ; and it must be admitted
they have thrown theory to the dogs most
, effectually. They rely upon nothing but
the evidences of their senses, and how can
that lead them astray t Well, sir, in this
[ respect they are, however, not quite origi
nal. Some ten or eleven years ago, during
the war, I met in the South an old farmer
Swho was called by his neighbors " Old
Tatum." He was a practical philosopher
of the same kind, who relied upon nothing
t but the evidences of his senses; and ilas
much as he could but with difficulty spell
Sout a word or two in large print, he had a
lofty contempt for book-learning.
I liked to talk with the old man, and
once in conversation I happened to say
something about the earth moving around
the sun. "Hold on," said old Tatum;
"what did you say there t The earth
moving around the sun i Where did you
get that t" "Well," I said, " I got it from
the books." "There again," cried old
Tatum, and be would fairly roll over with
laughter-" there again, from the books.
The earth moving around the sun I And
don't I see every day with these, my own
eyes, the sun moving around the earth t"
[Laughter.] "Don't I see it rise there in
the morning, and don't I see it go down
yonder every evening?" " Ah," said he,
" you book-men can't fool old Tatum."
ILaughter.] What a shining light old
Tatum would have been among the new
school of political economists here.
[Laughter.] Would he not have thrown
theory to the dogs like the very best of
them " Here I see a difficulty," old
Tatum would say; " there are many per
sons in the United States who want money;
the difficulty is, of course, there is not
money enough to go round. What is to
be done T Inasmuch as we make money by
p.inting it, let us print more until it will
go around." But, you may say, Mr. Tatum
Mr. Cameron-Was not Tatum a hard
money man 7
Mr. Schurz-No; unfortunately he was
not. I will show the Senator what he was;
and, in fact, the Senator himself has heard
of him quite frequently. You might say,
" Mr. Tatum, these bits of money are not
proper money at all; they are promises to
pay money ; and the more you will print
of them the less they will be worth, and
the less they are worth the less you can do
s with them in business; you cannot make
the country rich in that way." Such talk
would not trouble old Tatum at all. lIe
would laugh right in your face. " Do we
not call these paper notes dollars t" old
Tatum would say; " are they not dollars t
Cannot I read it with my spectacles in big
s print upon them, ' one dollar,' 'ten dollars,'
'one hundred dollars t' and is not the
conotry better off when it has fifteen hun
dred millions of these dollars than when
it has only seven hundred and fifty mil
lions of them t Ab, you can't fool old
Tatum, I tell you t" (Laughter.)
Neither would the question of interest
give old Tatum the least trouble in the
world. He would settle it with the same
ease with which the Senator from Indiana
settled it the other day. He would say :
" Money is capital ; do you not call it so I
r And these paper dollars are money do
r we not call them soT therefore these paper
dollars are capital. Must not everybody
Ssee that 7" You see old Tatum is a logician.
SNow, old Tatnm would continue, when
f these paper dollars are plenty, then capital
is cheap, and you can hire it at a low rate
of interest; when these paper dollars are
scarce, then of course he would say capital
is dear and you would have to pay much
more for it. So you cannot fool old Tatom.
" Do I not know that when you put more
hogs and horses in the market horses and
hogs get cheaper 7" [Laughter.] Thus you
see old Tatom would be as good at the
horse and hog argument as anybody.
[Laughter.] Old Tatum is eminently a
The Liberal ('hristian,, speaking of La
Marmora's "Revelations of the War of
S1866," sayse: "A more unhandsome figure
I could no man cut than Bismarck in these
'Revelations,' which do not admit of any
I doubt as to their authenticity. The effect
upon a German must be to make Bismarck
seem a miserable traitor. Either he was
that in 1860, or a miserable liar. Neither
alternative is pleasant, but one or the other
must be chosen."

She has climbed to the erest of the Jung
frau. Other brave girls have done some
thing of the same daring kind before with
other lower mountains of the 8witser
grouping, notably Miss Walker, an Eng
lish girl ; but our own heroine-Miss Bre
voort, a New Yorker-did the Matterhorn
and all other horns on the way upward
to the heavens, and did them in mid
All kinds of men have tried to solve the
problem of the Jungfran ("young lady")
and many have done it by tumbling into
eternity, thousands of feet below among
the eternal snows. Books, very charming
to read in slippers and dressing gown, and
finely illustrated, have been published, de
scribing how and when to do the Jung
frau, and what and who to do it with. It
is a mild form of lunacy which supports
a few inns,brinsane asylums, at the pretty
little village of Chamouni, where you
meet with a swarm of guides who don't lie
a bit like truth, but who rob you with a
continental grace and audacity far beyond
the power of description or appreciation.
But It is something to go Chamouni and
look up at the Matterhorn and the Jung
frau, even if you don't go up. It is not
everybody that has a head to face the slip
pery glaciers of Mont Blanc, to say nothing
of the heart, and it is all very well for peo
pie who have neither the heads nor the
hearts to shrug their shoulders and cry
cui bono. Coldstream, after looking into
Vesuvius, declared with ayawn that there
was nothing in it, and so also there may
be nothing in sitting on a big boulder on
the summit of the Jangfrau, and looking
at the icy fretwork on God's footstool.
There must be something in it, or men
would not be so continually going up and
coming down, looking death in the face at
every step, with nothing between them and
eternity-but an alpine stock, a rope and a
guide at the other end of it.
We don't know that anything could pre
vail on us to go balf a mile up towards the
Matterhorn, but we want an American girl
to have full credit for her courage. It is
not the fact of being pulled up to the top
of Mont Blanc that we care for, but it is
the American nerve and determination that
we admire and want others to admire. It
is the fashion to say that our girls are ex
otics and that they can't stand exposure.
Nonsense I When the occasion demands,
the American girl can, with a little train
ing, do just what any other girl can do.
She may be a little shaky on her pins at
first along pedestrian distances, and may
not be quite so clear as to take a straight
line across a stiff country, on a thorough
bred, as an English girl; but she can out
dance and out-skate, out-flirt and out-talk
anything of her weight and inches on
earth taken together, and as for clear grit,
she bows head to none on earth. In
stance this conquest of the perilous ascent
of the Jungfrau. Miss Brevoort is of a
good family, gently nurtured, of course,
well educated and refined, and a specimen
American girl of good style and good so
ciety. Voils! as the Frenchman would
say as the last unanswerable would in ar
gument. Miss Brevoort, the society girl,
scrambles to the top of Mont Blanc, throws
an old shoe down to the other side, and
waves the stars and strips at the cloud
gates of heaven.
JEFFERSON DAVIS AND JOSEPS E. JoHN
STro.-In a brilliant speech delivered a
few days ago at Atlanta, Ga., for the
Southern Historical Society, the Hon. B.
H. Hill denied emphatically that General
Joseph E. Johnston had been removed from
the command of the Confederate army at
Atlanta, Ga., by order of President Davis.
Mr. Hill said:
You have all heard it said that Mr. Da
vis was moved by personal hostility to
Johnston in making this removal. This is
not only not true, but is exceedingly false.
I do know much on the subject of this
removal. I was the bearer of messages
from General Johnston to the President,
and was in Richmond, and sometimes pres
ent, at the discussions on the subject. I
never saw as much agony in Mr. Davis'
face as actually distorted it, when the pos
sible necessity for this removal was first
suggested to him. I never heard a eulogy
pronounced upon Johnston by his best
friends equal to that which I heard from
Mr. Davis during these discussions. I know
he consulted with Gen. Lee fully, earnestly
and anxiously before this perhaps unfortu
nate removal. I know that those who
pressed the removal firs and most earn
estly in the Cabinet, were those who had
been most earnest for Gen. Johoston'sorig
inal appointment to that command. All
these things I do personally know. I was
not present when the order for removal
was determined on, but I received it im
mediately after from a member of the
Cabinet, and do not doubt its truth that
Mr. Davis was the very last man who gave
his assent to that removal.
Hundreds of men have no time to get ac
quainted with their children. They see in
a general way that they are clean and
wholsome looking, they pay the quarterly
school bills, and they grudge no expense
in the matter of bhoes and overcoats. They
dimly remember that they once courted
their wives, and said tender things in
pleasantparlors, where'the cheerful gas
light shed its glow, or on moonlight even
ings under the rustling leaves." The time
for that has gone by, and they would feel
as bashful as a schoolboy reciting a piece,
were they te essay a compliment now to
the lady at the other end of the table. They
have forgotten that home has its inalien
able rights, and among them, first and
chiefest, the right to their personal pre
sence. Nothing rests a man or woman who
has been busy about one set of things,
better than a total change of employment
or feeling. A nap on the lounge is all
very well, but after a half hour of it, if
the most tired man will shake off dull
sleep, and have a romp with the children,
or a game of be-peep with the baby, he
will be rested much more thoroughly than
if hle drowse away the whole evening, as
too many business men do.-Beerth and
Of the thirty-five hundred new books
published in England last year, there were
two-thirds as many works on science and
art as works of fiction. When it is con
sidered how much more restricted in num
ber the readers of science are than those of
novels, it is a good sign that works of the
former class should make so good a show.
A man may be healthy without being
strong; but all health tends, more or less,
toward strength, and all disease is weak
ness. Now, any one may see in nature
that things grow big simply by growing;
this growth is a constant and habitual ex
ercise of vital or vegetable force, and
whatever eheeks or diminishes the aetion
of this force-say harsh winds or frost
will stop the growth and stnnt the produo
tion. Let the student therefore bear in
mind, that sitting on a chair, leaning over
a desk; poring over a book, cannot possibly
be the way to make his body grow. The
blood can be made to flow, and the muns
elea to play freely, only by exercise, and if
that exerelse is not taken, nature will not
be mocked. Every yonog student-ought
to make a sacred resolution, to move about
in the open air at least two honrs every
day. If he does not do this, cold feet, the
clogging of the wheel of the internal parts
of the fleshy frame and various shades of
stomachio and cerebral discomfit will not
fail in due season to inform him, that he
has been sinning against nature, and if he
does not mend his courses, as a bad boy,
he will certainly be flogged, for nature is
never, like some soft-hearted human mas
ters, over-merciful in her treatment. But
why should a student indulge so much in
the lazy and unhealthy habit of sitting t A
man may think as well standing as sitting,
often not a little better; and as for read
ing, in these days, when the most weighty
books may be had cheaply in the lightest
form, there is no necessity why a person
should be bending his back, and doubling
his chest, merely because he happens to
have a book in his hand. A man may read
a play or poem far more naturally and
effectively while walking up and down the
room than when sitting sleepily in a chair.
Sitting, in fact, is a slovenly habit, and
ought not to be indulged. But when a
man does sit, or must sit, let him at all
events sit erect, with his back to the light,
and a full free projection of the breast.
Also, when studying languages, or reading
fine passages of poetry, let him read as
much as possible aloud; a practice recom
mended by Clemens of Alexandria, and
which will have the double effect of
strengthening that most important vital
element, the lungs, and training the ear to
the perception of vocal distinction, so
stupidly neglected in many of our public
schools. There is, in fact, no necessary
connection, in most cases, between the
knowledge which a student is anxious to
acquire and the sedentary habits which
students are apt to cultivate.-Professor
Blakie, on " Self-Culture."
A NOVEL LAw QussTiox.-A novel law
question has arisen in Iowa. The Missis
sippi river until recently has annually
frozen over solid between Prairie du Chien
and McGregor. The ice has furnished a
winter highway from one side to the other
during several months in the year, enabling
the people to dispense with bridges and
ferries. Recently the Milwaukee and St.
Paul railroad has built a pile bridge aeross
the river, the effect of which, it is aserted,
has been, by creating eddies and changing
the current, to wholly prevent the forma
tion of ice so that the stream below the
structure remains permanently open. The
river, it is claimed, is a public highway at
all seasons, as much one way as another,
and the use of the ice-bridge is a right of
which the public cannot be divested by any
authority. It is assumed that suits for
damages would lie, and that the railroad
bridge is liable to be indicted and ordered
removed as a nuisance and obstruction to
trade and intercourse between States.
