' Hie General Policy,
from the outset (Allis reign until within
a year past, has bee 'ono of absolutism.
Freedom of speech and - of the press were
unknown, the Senate was a mere instru
ment of his will, and the electiobs of del
egates to the Corps Legislatif were vo
manipulated as to render that body. al
most equally SubserVient. But the vote
polled by the opposition in May, 1809,
showed such an alarming . inerease that
Napoleon at once beeam6 alarmed, and
proclaimed, in the Sonatus Consultum of
September, certain reforms in answer to
the demands 'of the people. Still further
warned by the boldness of the Liberal
-party in the Corps Legislatif, he finally
professed to abandon the system of per
sonal government and an irresponsible
ministry, which had been inaugurated
by the coup d'etat of 1851, and on the
second of Jtinuary of the present year,
M: Emile 011ivier, the leader of the
more moderate Liberals, was called to
the head of the ministry. But this con
cession did not. serve to satisfy the peo
ple, and in the disturbances which fol
io-Toad- the arrest anti imprisonment of.
Rochefort, the editor of La karseill«ise,
in January lasi, a formidable uprising in'
Paris was only averted by the presence
of a veteran army of ibp,ooo men.
When Rochefort was safely disposed of
for six months,' another appeal to the
people, was made, and the plebiseilum of
May, which, received about 7,250,000
affirmative -to about 1,550,000 negative
votes, nominally ratified ,the so-called
reforms in the Constitution which had
been inaugurated by' the Emperor at
various times. Simultaneous wall - N:l4s
came an alleged conspiracy against his
life, and numerous arrests, especially of
men connected with the workpigmen's
organizations, were made.
The Trouble with Prussia..
- Before all the implicated parties could .
be brought totrial, and while the ques
tion of a poshible encounter with Prus
sia was being broached in the ('orps
Legislatif, •dming the debate ou the
army contingent, the candidacy of Prince
Leopold, of Hohenzollern, for the throne
of Spain fulittaroused the great majority
of the French people, not less than the
Eniperor himself. Napoleon demanded
of the -King of Prussia the withdrawal
of Prince Jmopold. This demand was
acceded to, Prince LiMpold withdrawing
unconditionally as soon as the peace of
'Europe was threatened. Napoleon then
demanded , that William I, as King of
Prussia, as well as the head of the House
of llobenzollern, should renmince, for
ever, all pretensions to the throne of
Spain on the part of any member-of the
Hohenzollern family. To this demand
King William in a dignified matinee re
sponded that he had had nothing to-do
with the candidature of Prince Leopold,
and on the fourteenth finally declined to.
hold any further communication with
the French Ambassador on thoVlJject.
It was evident from the start that the
candidature of the Prince of Hohenzol
leflt was ;Leiner° pretext ; that Napoleon,
remembering - hoW he - was outwitted en
1807, on the Luxembourg question, jeol
one of the growing power of Prussia, and
longing for an occasion to humble - King
- William, and at the same them-push the_
-boundaries-of--France- to theathine,—itas.:
determined upon going to war. So, at
two o'clock on the afternoon of the fif
teenth, the corps Legislatif formally
elated war against Prussia, and the pre
parations for the impending struggle
Which were already in progress were at
onto pushed forward with all possible
celerity, the French people responding
to the cry of "On to the Rhine !" with
quite as much unanimity and enthusiasm
as those of Prussia.

OUR COUNTY CONVENTION.-
The County Commettce has made a
call for the meeting of the Republican
COunty Convention on the fifteenth of
August. It is of the highest importance
that this Convention have delegates front
all the boroughs and townships in the
county, and that those delegates be the
most active and pnident Repuhlic:wt
that can be found. If such be the case,
we will neceisarilypave a good ticket,
&id ono in which every part of the
county will feel an interest. If weltave
a slim convention, we will almost surely
have% poor ticket, and a dull and care
less campaign. This should not be. We
have a chance to cariT' the county for
the whole ticket, if Nqe put forth our
efforts. If we do not exert our Selves, or
it we allow local differences to distract
us- we will be beaten jtett, as usual.
, The interests • of every ;isnan in the
county demand 'a change in its politics.
The politicians in power are so thor
oughly corrupt and unscrupulous, that
to continuo thole longer is madness.
Two years ago, the Congressional nomi
nation of the,Democratic party was 'per:
chased openly, by a man who had moved
into the county for the purpose of securing
it. This is charged directly by the party
organ Rita • Our-Representative
Legislature votes to give away millions
of the State securities to unorganized
' railroad companies, Our Commissioners
lieve;,beon, foi years, wastefill and ex
travagant in their improVements; and
incompetent to manage the business en

years, not onc in live of the persons
elected to fill the Court offices have had
any qualification whltthver, ter their
duties. •Our County Treasurers receive
snore Salary for the work a clerk does for

through,which the business of the county
'is transacted, are used merely as the
reward be the nieftwho • do the work of
local politicians for the Democracy, and
for this only. -
Now, we say to the people-of the
•county,:and especially tb those whmaro
opposed to the party in power,: that these
things demand a change - . ,Wo need con
ventions that cannot be bought, and
polithians who will not attemptio - buy
them. We need legislators who know.
that the State property belongs to the
people, and is not intended to enrich and
lienefittlto corporates 'of vdlroad 'corn

who are' competent bushogia men, Mnd
who will study how they can best curtail .
the expenses of the minty management;
not how they can *be increased. Wu

There is but one chance to improve the
management of the aunty, and that is
by thoroughly changing its politics. To,
do this we must nominate a first-class
ticket, and than support it heartily,.
There are scores of honest Democrats
who are heartily tired of the existing
state of things. They will cheerfully
,support a proper ticket, if nominated.
They should have such a one presented
to them ;,and we should show them that
we mean work, and . intend this time• to
accomplish•what we undertake. Noth
ing valuable is won in business or politics
without great effort. ,Let our friends
then determine that they will work zeal
ously to redeem the county frOm the mis
management of the Democracy.

member of the Legislature, and the
present candidate for the Demboratie
'nomination, again rushes into print.

This is sorrowful tidings, and-he will,
'doubtless, receive the commiseration of
his constituents, and theirbest wishes
for his speedy, recovery. Do also tells
'them that lie will call on them all as
soon as ho recovers. This is gratifying,
and will mitigate the sorrow the first
announcement caused. lie then tells.
them that he voted for the Omnibus
Railroad swindle. That isn't so new,
but then it is important. That the
representative of this county should vote
to turn over all the securities the Slate
owns, in defiance of the plain provisions
of the co.:maim., to three or four un
organized and irresponsible railroad com
panies isn't perhaps so strange, but
that lie should announce and defend it
over his own signature, is to say the least
somewhat brazen. Tut Mr, Leidig de
fends it as a Democratic measure. Ile
says that Mr. Wallace drew the bill, and
supported it. This -is trite enough, and
it should entitle him.to absolution froni
the Democratic party. This big rail
road swindle was a set-up job for the
Democracy. Mr. Prank. linghes was

a speedy flight to the maser neighborly
houses. Mark 'Twain, himself, would
have laughed had- he witnessed' thiS
flight, and his famous 'charge on the
Bedouins, not even excite a smile in
comparison. Supper was eaten in a

by the gentlemen at the Springs to the

affair of the season. The attendance
was very numerous, the dancing excel

occasion. The refreshments were abund
