A WAK IN Kl HOPE.
Until quite recently, the present
peace of Europe has been threatened,
and the report, that a satisfactory
adjustment is on foot, has no certain
ty in it. Still, it is hoped that the
good sense of the leading spirits of
the Old World, will hit upon some
expedient to allay the jealousies and
animosities existing between Prus
sia and France. For it is between
these powers that war is threatened.
Not that the people of these respec
tive governments desire to shock
each other, not a bit of it; bnt
Count Bismarck, who rules Prussia,
and Louis Napoleon, who rules the
French, have lately become very
jealous of each other, and it is to
gratify their private pique, that the
people are to light. We have no
particular fancy for either of these
rulers, and if they would go to work
and pommel each other right effectu
ally, we would not care which got
the worst, or the best of it. We do
not desire however, to see their poor
subjects forced to destry each other,
to gratify these cowardly bullies.—
So far as numerical strength is con
cerned, however, the two nations are
pretty nearly eqaal, and from this,
the inference would naturally be,
that a contest between the two pow
ers, would be very doubtful. France
in all her late wars has been success
ful, and as a war power has been
considered superior to any other in
Europe, uutil now, the late successes
of Prussia, have, in the public judg
ment, made her the equal of France.
A war between these two nations
now, would be a very different thing
from what it was under the First Na
poleon, not because of the increased
power of both, nor yet because of the
immense improvement in war projec
tiles, but because of the elevation
and advancement of the people in
both countries in their civil and mor
al characteristics. In these particu
lars, the German and the Frenchman,
have grown greatly, and as we be
lieve, the former more than the lat
ter. Prussiaus are the best educa
ted people—so far as book learning
is concerned—in the world. There
all males must be sent to school a
certain number of years, and all
able-bodied ones must be soldiers for
a period of years ; and if we had to
guess. or bet, on the result of a fair
fight between Prussia and France,
we would stake for the former ; first
because of her intelligence, and sec
ond because of her religion. The
Prussians aie Protestants, and the
French Catholics ; and we believe
the easy triumph of Prussia over
Austria, was attributable to this con
sideration. While the latter are as
decidedly German as the former, and
in physical and mental developments
are their equals, there is no account
ing for the great superiority of the
Prussians over the Austrians, which
has long been so thoroughly settled,
even before the last quarrel, unless
we ho it on the ground of education
and religion. In the war between
Prussia and Austria, it was Protes
tantism and education against Ca
tholicism and ignorance, and the
former had an easy victory, as it
should have had : and so it will be,
we opine, if Prussia and France
fight, notwithstanding the wonderful
prestige which hangs over the war
power of France.
The immediate cause of a rupture
in Europe, grows out of a dispute
about the old Fortress and Province
of Luxemberg, lying on the borders
of Holland and Prussia. It contains
about eight hundred and fifty square
miles, and has a population of Igss
than two hundred thousand souls.—
It belongs to Holland, but is essenti
ally German in its institutions and
its population. In virtue of its be
ing a part of his possessions, the
King of Holland was a member of
the late German Confederacy, had a
vote in the Diet, and furnished a mil
itary contingent for the Confederate
armies. The city of Luxemburg,
the capital of the Duchy, has one of
the strongest fortresses in Europe,
which has always been kept up at
Gorman expense, and garrisoned by
German troops, usually, both former
ly and at present, by those of Prus
sia The city and its fortress togeth
er constitute one of those strongholds
which the warring sovereigns of Eu
rope have always watched with the
utmost vigilance. Its natural posi
tion amidst precipitous rocks, and on
one of the routes of communication
between Germany and France, is
alone sufficient to give i t very great
importance, and this importance has
been enhanced by its historical con
nection with some of the decisive
events of modern Europe.
The recent dissolution of the Ger
manic Confederation, it seems, has
made the Duchy of Luxemburg, with
its capital and fortress, a subject of
some speculation and negotiation.—
It is too German to be of much use
to Holland, and it has too command
ing a position near the entrance to
France, to be anything but an instru
ment of meuace, if it is transferred
to Prussia. Louis Napoleon, as was j
to be expected, lost no time in mak- |
ing overtures to Holland for its pur- 1
chase and annexation to France. But J
as a Prussian garrison holds the city
and its fortress, it is of course iinpos- |
bible to complete the bargain and t
make the conveyance without the
consent of Prussia, and this consent
was not likely to be given. Count
Bismarck appears upon the scene,
the negotiations are interrupted, and
the French Emperor, in disappoint
ment, if not in rage, breaks off his
negotiations, and commences the
work of arming his country as if for
war. The slightest report of war
like preparations in France is at any
time sufficient to awaken the anxiety
of all Europe, and to lead to the rail
tary expenditure of many millions of
dollars, by every one of the Great
Powers. Least of all, could Prussia
afford to be indifferent to such a pro
ceeding. Her Government makes no
delay in addressing a note to the Em
peror to ask the reasons of his new
military activity, and without wait
ing for an answer it proceeds to imi
tate his example. Austria and Ba
varia, and some of the Bmaller Ger
man States are doing the same thing,
while Russia and Great Britain are
making ready diplomatic agencies
which they intend to bring to bear
upou the question.
What the precise state of the ques
tion is at the present moment, of
course is but imperfectly known
The people of Luxemburg, however,
have declared that they are not wish
ing to be sold to France, and even if
they were, it is plain that the s ale
could not be completed without the
consent of Prussia, who has military
possession of the only part of the
territory to which importance is at
tached. Gn the other hand, it is not
surprising that Louis Napoleon is
unwilling that this military posses
sion should continue in the hands of
a power that has lately shown itself
so able, and so disposed to have a
policy of its own in the politics of
the Continent. There are thus in
volved in the question all the ele
ments of an imbroglio as difficult
and as comprehensive as the most
long-headed and cold-hearted schem
er could devise for the thorough agi
tation of the world. The only plan
which appears thus far to have been
suggested for escaping the ultimate
collision of arms, is that the Duchy
of Luxemburg be declared neutral
territory, and it is now reported that
both the contending parties have ac
ceded to this.
RECONSTRUCTION IN THE SOCTH.
It is to be regretted that Governors
Sharkey and Jenkinsjare throwing the
weight of their inlluence and efforts
against the re-construction of the
South under the late act of Con
gress. llow these men expect to
promote the welfare of the late rebel
states but such a course, we are una
ble to conjecture. If these men
should succeed in keeping out their
respective states out from an organ
ization under the act of Congress,
they will only postpone their politi
cal status, and as a natural sequence,
suspend all business, improvement,
investment, and everything calcula
ted to quiet and advance the inter
ests of the people and states. We
are glad to see that many of the
leading men, and newspapers of the
Southern States are repudiating the
action of these two men. A leading
Georgia paper asserts that the ill-ad
vised course pursued by these men
occasioned great gloom and despon
dency in that state. It asserts that
the people had become reconciled to
the bill, and had made up their mind
to accept it cheerfully, and go to
work in good faith under the provi
sions of the law. The proceedings
taken by Gov. Jenkins have thrown
everything out again. The people
arc driven into suspense. Confidence
is unsettled, capitalists hesitate to
invest their money in]the state, and
the adjustment of the political and
industrial affairs of the South is in
definitely delayed. Another year of
uncertainty, distrust and delay, can
not fail to inflict immense injury up
on the South ; and as it is for the in
terest of the whole country that all
questions growing out of the war,
should be settled with as little delay
as possible, the obstinacy and folly,
with which the Georgia papers find
fault, should be equally deplored by
the Northern press.
There seems to be little doubt that
the Southern people, but for this in
judicious movement, would soon set
tle into the quiet recognition of the
altered relations which the war has
brought about, between the blacks
and the whites. The Freedmen are
already taking an active part in poli
tics, with the encouragement and co
operation of their white neighbors,
who show no disposition to interfere
with or to coerce them. Since the
passage of the Military Reconstruc
tion Bill, the outrages against the
persons and property of Freedmen
have ceased. School-houses are no
longer burned, nor are scholars or
teachers threatened with violence.—
This is a very great advance over
last year, and is full of promise for
the South in years to come. But in
view of these facts, how pernicious
and reprehensible is the action of
men like Gov. Jenkins, who would
put a stop to the fraternization of
the whites and blacks at the South,
and throw back for a year, at least,
the settlement of society. These
men have learned nothing and for
gotten nothing. They seem to have
waked out of a long sleep, with the
same ideas they had when they lay
down. It is to be hoped that their
day has gone by, and that the South
will repudiate their action with the
promptness which the exigency of
■the time requires. They should be
taught that moral revolutions never
go backward, and that the South of
to day is as different from the South
of six years ago as Europe is from
Turkey. Their leadership should be
a very dim remembrance from the
past, so it will be, if the people of
the South are just to themselves.
