His army would thep have been coliecledat Lignyiin Iliel5lh, at uoo'ii, ihere to await the alt.iek of the French ai my, or to mairh a.jainst il io the evening of that day, to drive it into the S.imbre. " 2 But .Marshal Blucliei; though surprised, pei,sisled in assembling his army on the heights of Lig'iy,�behinil Fleurus; iliiis Inaving the chance of being attacked.before his troops cDiild he brnught up to that position. On Ihe morning of Ihe 16tb he had got toirether only two corps, and Ihe'French army was already at Fleiirus. The third corps joined during the day, but the fourth, under Ihe comniami of Gen. Bnliiw, could not come up in lime to take part in the battle. Marshal Blucher, as s.uii as be knew that the French were at Cliarleroi, ought not to have fixed for tbe rallyiag point of his a-my either Flenrus or Lingy, which was already under the rannim of his enemy, but Wavies, whither the Fieueli could not nriive uniil ilie I7th. He uuuld'bet^ides thus have had all tbe day and the night of the ISlh to collect the whole of his army. " 3. After loiing the bailie of Ligny, the ,Prussian General, instead of making his retreat mi Wavres, should have effected it ou Ihe army of the Duke of Wellington, titlnr \ on Qiiatre-Bras, as that position was maintained, or iiii Waterloo. The retreat of Marshal Blucher, on the morning of the 17th, was altogether absurd, since the two armies, which were on tbe evening of the lOih only 3,01)0 toises distant from each other, with the ciimniuiiicali'oi of an excellent liieh ruad, by wliicli they miglil consider themselves as united, became on the evening of Ihe 17th more than 10,000 toises dissant, and were separated by defiles and impracticable roads. " The Prussian General vinlaled the three great principles of war: 1 To approximate bis cantonuient^. 2. To assign as the rallying pdut a place at which all his troops could arrive before the euemy. 3. To operate his retreat on bis reinforcements. " Seventh Ouservation.- 1. The Duke of Wellington wassnrprised in his cantonments. He ought to have concentrated them on Ihe 15th, at eight leagues around Brus-eals, placing advanced guards on Ihe debouches of Flanders. The French army had manonivred fur three days before his advanced, and 24 hours had expired since it cummenced liostililies. Its head-quarters had been for twelve hours at Charlerni, while the English General reniained ignorant of all this at Rriissels, and the cantoniiienis of bis army .^till occupied in full sei-nrity an �-xlent of 20 leagues. 2. The Pi ince of Saxe-Weimar, wluise corps formed part of the Aiiglo-Dutch army, was on tbe 15lb, at four in the eveviing, in position in front of Frasne, aud knew that the French army was at Cliarleroi. Had he iminediatelysent oil" an Aiile-de-Canip to Brussels, he might have arrived there by six in the evening, and yet the Duke' uf Wellington was nut infoimcd of tlie French army being at Charleioi nutil eleven o'clock. Thus be Inst five hnnrs, when his situation and the man opposed to liiiu rendered the loss of a single hour of great iin portaiice. " 3. The infantry, the cavalry, and the artillery of that army, being separiitily cantoueil, the iul'aulry was engaged at (^iiatre Bras wiihoiit either cavalry or artillery ; these troops had thus to snstaiiru great loss, as they were obliged to keep'in close column 10 make bead against the charges of the cuirassiers, under a fire of fifty pieces of cannon. Those brave ineu were therefore slaughtered, without cavali7 to protect them, and without artillery to avenge llirin. As the three kinds of military foice cannot for a moment-dispense with the support of each other, they ought always lo be so canliiiied and posted as to be able lo afford reciprocal assistance. " 4. The English General, though surprised, assigned Qiiitre-Bras for Ihe rallying point of bis aciny, thongli that position had been for24 hours lit Ihe possession uf the French. He exposed his troops to be partially ilefeated in proportion as they might arrive. The danger to which he exposeil th^in traa even still more serious, since he made tUem advance without artillery and cavalry; be delivered up bis infantry, ill Iragmenls, uus?{)ported by the other two weapons of war. In ils enemy. The point for asyeiiibling his army should have been Walerlim. He vinnld thus have had all the I6th, and all the ni�bl of that day to tbe 17ib, which would have been siilBcieut t'or colleEting Ihe whole of his army, infantry, caviilry, and arliilery. Tbe French could not arrive till the 17tli, and then would have found all bis army in po^iliou. " EianiTii Observatiom.-1. On the 18th tbe English General gave battle at Waterloo, 'i'his conduct was contrary io Ihe iiiteiesis of his nation, to the general plan of Ihe war adopted by the Allies ; ami he violated all the rules of war. It was nut the interest of Ein^lund, which needs so many men to recruit her armies in linlia, her American colonies, aud her other vast establishments, to rush wantnnly iul'i a murderous contest, wliiclfinlglit occasion the loss uf her only army, oral leant her best blood to be shed. The plan of tbe Allies was to act in mass, and not lo engage in any partial affair. Nothing was more contrary to their interest and their plan, than to expose the success of their cause lo Ihe chances of .a battle with nearly equal fnrces, wbirc all the probabilities were against them. tbe Anglo-Dutch army been destroyed at Waterloo, what advantagu could the Allies have ckrived from their numirous armies which were preparing to pa^-s Ihe Rhine, the Alps, and the ryr.iuis? " 2. The English General, in r.-sulvnig to iiglii'the liatile of VVaierloo, fuuniled his resolution only on Hie cd-npi ranoii ' of the Pnis-ii.iis; but that co-operalion cnnld not lake place i until ihe afiernonij. Aerordingly he remained ex.msed singly from four in the morning till five in the eveninL', ilial |. is to say, during 13 hours. A bailie ii ;Between30,000aud 40,000 Mcmrtoifs ViewU, rjjnid scarcely be expected lo maintain Ihemsctves.'

This loss (>f six hours friim riay-iir^-^-^ w-i^ all to the advantage of Ihe enemy; bin roul I the fi�il-'"il make the fate of such a cnnlest depend .>n trie n'eaili'-'"f that night? Marshal Grouchy with 34,000 m-'u, an I ! iMd th� Pinssian Generals believed, during the who> iif"the cigM of the )7lh, and Ihe uk'iniiig of the }8tb, aini it' tin- w-a-thrr bad p.iinitteil the French army to lit dra^ii n;i ir' tie array at four in the niurniug, Ijeluiu seven i.'cliirk I.'.'.
