That they are competent and do perform their

don't intend that the cry of "stop thiof" shall
turn pnblio attention tho wrong way. The

The Council does not pave our streets ; they
do not pave our side walks. Thun, for what

last Monday evening to import another Yan

made to carry this subject through, hut
tho voice of the people decided that Yankee

The Emperor of Austria Wept.
" When tbe Emperor of Austria
treat of bis troops from the Tower of Cavriana,
be bad tears in his eyes." Those tears that
the :
started in that young
l«p» drawn forth only by the sting of baffled
i »opes. Perhaps he felt only at that moment
1 tlie hopelessness which we have all experien
ced at times when tbe stream of events has
gone against us, and when not
citement of personal effort remained. He bad
gone forth that morning confident that tbe
sanguine predictions of bis aged advisers
would be fulfilled ; that tbe immense army
which obeyed bis command liko a well-finish
ed machine
that tbe plan of tbe day's battle would be
worked out with the rigid certainty of a piece
of official routine; and that tbe evening
's eyes
invincible and irresistable;
the French and Sardinian invadors
broken by bis troops and flying in disorder
before him. Tbe only fear
least they
, and before hi* extended
should fly too
lines could converge and surround them.
Hess had doubtless reminded him how a si
ilar invasion had been resisted ten years be
fore, and bow Radeziky, when be ceased to
retreat, and bad doubled back upon tbe Sar
dinians, bad given out "Turin"
word of tbe day. He had rallied undoubting
ly upon tbe virtue of the precedents of former
years, and had believed tbe old Field-Marshal
when he attributed tbe smaller disasters of
the present campaign to tho weakness of
Gyulai, in not fighting
of Novara. He bad trusted in his numerous
the watch
again tbe battle
efficient, according to the only
standard of efficiency which he and his Gene
rals knew. Ho bad confided in that well
trained cavalry, whicji he bad seen so perfect
in tlieir evolutions upon the plain before him,
where they bad wheeled and charged in many
a grand review, chasing before them imagina
ry foed. He religiously believed that
my oould stand the shock of his columns
of sturdy infantry,
bristling masses that to his eyes
incarnation infrangible power. Hut in
day illusion after illusion had broken up and
conld break the
drifted away. He had been learning for many
hours the incapacity of matter to contend with
mind. His artillery, out shot by a
feet aim, had proved little better than an in
cumbrance in the battle ; his impregnable
position upon that high hill, had after despe
rate resistance, been taken at a rush by a
active a
intelligent, tyid a
enterprising soldiery ; his infantry, although
numerically superior in the field, had always
been "too few
the decisive point, and at
the decisive minute." While he looked from
the Tower of Cavriana this massive organiza
long-prepared system of physical force had
broken at its first test, and in vexation or in
sorrow the Emperor of Austria wept.
The result of this defeat must be far greater
than tho Iosh of a field of battle and a strategic
line, or even of tho variously stated killed
and wounded who cumber the hospitals and
moulder under tho surface of tho plain. Des
potism can exist only under the condition of
victory. The corps of Louis the Great
hooted on its way to sepulture, and Napoleon
the Great looked around in vnin for some
being dissolved before him, this
hopeful friends to counsel further resistance
before he signed his final abdication. In tbe
army of Austria and among the people of Aus
tria, if we are rightly informed, all is now ir
ritation, rising rapidly to disaffection. The
soldiery are still as confident
selves, but they have no longer any confidence
in their leaders. It was under the fear of im
pending mutiny that Gyulai was removed
from his command. F
general voi
the aristocracy
tional disgrace, and to inveigh loudly against
the exclusive character of the disposition of
military rank. Tho soldiery, whether Aus
trians, Hungarians or Croats, true to their
military esprits, de corps, demand to be led
back again to battlo, but by leaders who
able to command them. They refnse to ad
mit the supposition that they are inferior to
the French as soldiers. They are exasperated
and not cowed, and their exasperation is even
greater against the system by which they
have been sacrificed than against the enemy
by whom they have defeated. They insist
upon fighting, and, in the face of the general
excitement, it will be impossible for the Em
peror, either for strategic or for political pur
poses, to shrink from repeating once and again
the experiment so disastrously made at Solfe
rino. But, if we may trust the reports of
those who have most recently mixed with all
classes of the soldiery, it is no longer with the
hope or the caro to save Italy to the Austrian
empire,~0r to give effect to tho old Imperial
policy that other battles are demanded, but
simply with the desire to retriuvo the honor
of the army, to recover to thcniselves their
in them
tho first time, the
d camp dares to accuso
the cause of the great
in city
self-respect, and to prove to the world
not inferior to the
that as soldiers they
French. The country to a great extent shares
tliis sentiment. The hope is now, as in 1814,
that after having defeated the foreign enemy
they may make peace with honor, and may
then turn around and arrange their own af
fairs at home. Tho Government which
tolerated in its prosperity, and only by reason
of its prosperity, has become contemptible
immediately it has proved itself to be weak ;
and all its subjects have discovered that it has
moral qualities to preserve it from general
detestation. Now, for the first time, the Em
peror hears the truth from his people ; and
while the figment of his military power is be
ing rudely exposed by the French, tho popu
lar voice cries aloud: " It is for this impotent
imposture that the people have been sacrificed,
and that tho nation has been reduced to bank
ruptcy !"
It is difficult to predict how far this very
reasonable dissatisfaction of the armed and
nnurmed subjects of the Austrian Empire may
carry them. It is an exaggeration, and per
haps scarcely an exaggeration, of the general
sentiment which pervaded the English nation,
when the Crimean campaign made manifest
the nepotism and imbecility of the aristocratic
chiefs of our own military force. In our sys
tem, this is' the only department which is
homogeneous with a despotic form of govern
ment, and which is not responsible to the
House of Commons. If in those days the
English Constitution was upon its trial, in
this fragment of absolute power, despotic in
stitutions were also upon their trial. Now
quiet times are for a moment returned, those
who are most interested in tho preservation
of an effective national force are allowed to re
lapse into their old somnoleneo and long tried
obstinacy. After all that has been said and
proved, the authors of thatt frightful waste a
Balaklava, and of those dreadful scenes
the plateau before Sebastopol, wear honors
and titles as glorious records of the deeds
which tarnished tho honor of
eclipsed, for tho moment, the memories of a
thousand victories. We suffer these insults
to our love of country, because we know that
have, at any absolutely critical moment,
the power by great and irregular but peaceful
effort to arrest and punish them. But such is
not the case in Austria. Austria has no free
press, no House of Commons, no constitut ional
checks ; her system is of that kind which
a blow shivers, but which no friendly pressure
bends. Wo doubt whether Francis Joseph
can maintain tho traditionary policy of his
House in the face of military defeat. It may
be that he will have to draw back from Italy,
to restore to Hungary the institutions of which
she has been robbed, to give some liberty of
speech, and action, and conscience, to his
German provinces ; or, in default, per
chance to depend upon the ZouavA of the
French Emperor, or upon the Cossacks
camped upon the frontiers of Galicia, to pro
tect him from the demands of his own subject,
and the indignation of those troops who re
treated so sulkily from the heights of Solfe
s, and
