   Church Herald (Newspaper) - April 27, 1872, London, Middlesex                                The Church Published on Wednesdays and at Bedford PRICE ONE FRANCE AND THE position of these two great Powers is at present 3 source of anxiety to all who are lovers of Becent accounts show that the illfeeling existing between France and Prussia is on the Let us for a calmly and dispassionately review the facts of the ease in which these two great and populous nations now as to the Prussians been contented with mere victory had they not wantonly prolonged the war in their insatiable wish for plunder and an honourable peace have been But Bismarck wished for unlimited and he wished to cripple France entirely so that she might be powerless to avenge her own or to help any power which Prussia might choose to His object as has been often remarked of late in English to humble in the first it is cowardly and mean to humble an enemy whom you have con quered in fair Victory is quite enough to every generous mind and the idea of reaping pecuniary or of further crushing a foeman worthy of your after the is certainly the reverse of The Germans choose to wish that France should be But it is not for the interest of Europe that such a thing should come to Every one must praise the though very irregular lately made by France to reinstate herself in that posi tion among European Powers to which she has an un doubted more has an inte rest in this France was our good ally in the Crimea onr troops and hers fought side by side and this fact alone ought to be sufficient to enlist English sympathies on her The presence of redcoats on the banks of the Loire in October might have saved our ally from the undeserved humiliation she has had to Bat our Government would not do anything of the sort they had left without a sufficient army to defend our own and how could we then help a friend in even if the powers or weaknesses that ruled the destinies of England had enough of spirit and of fore thought to attempt such a thing we has as good a right to crush Prussia as Prussia has to crush The great safe guard of modern policy is supposed to be in the balance of that is to nations are presumed to admit the truth that it is better for the peace of the that one Power should not be able to coerce We cannot but commend France for the measures she has recently taken to secure herself from fresh aggres sions on the part of She had a lesson sufficiently a degradation sufficiently to make her feel the imperative necessity of protecting herself against a Power as her immediate may at any time invade and whose recklessness and ruthlessness she had learnt by sad It is a pity that some powerful European nation should not join in a treaty to if the insatiable craving for blood and plunder which seems to animate the minds of the rulers of Germany at the present England is most of all interested in this because she is very open to and an alliance with Russia would probably secure us from the danger of an invasion which would certainly be imminent if Germany succeeded in thoroughly crushing The spoiler Bismarck knows our weak points and onr rich cities would offer a tempting spoil to his Let us take heed in Let us arm and organise our forces let us join with some great military power to keep under the overweening insolence of to teach her to keep her proper place among It may be said that as the seaboard of Prussia is that country could hardly embark an army at any point sufficient to assail because she cannot possess an absolute either for war or merchant service all who are acquainted with the German temperament will even supposing an adequate force to be the men would soon be all in speechless agonies of And if our own fleet attacked what next it behoves us to be on onr We have now a Power in Europe ruled by men whose sole object seems to be to dominate and to crush their without disparaging the bravery of onr army or yet considering that both these forces have been rendered as inefficient as a Radical Government can make we must say that England ought at once to seek for allies who might aid in restraining the ambition of Germanys We entered into and waged to check the ambition of the First and also of the Eussian Emperor Should not the ambition of a Power whose enormous armaments menace the peace of Europe be also controlled Is the insatiable Bismarck really a less dangerous enemy to the peace of Europe than the First Napoleon t Why is all Europe arming We read although peace prevails for the every Continental nation is increasing its armed In the number of soldiers now sous les drapeoux we totally except in war throughout all We do of speak of where the Government deem it the best policy and will find it the worst to reduce the army to a mere corps bearing about the sama proportion to the force needed by as a corporals guard does to a complete we is arming and con sidering the evils which result from calling millions of men away from their and nations would not take such a except in case of imminent And this danger can arise from only that is It is surely time that some alliance should take place between those European States which desire and must be strong enough to keep in check the warloving and to prevent them from attempting to realise their present cowardly intention of crushing a fallen In the interest of it is necessary that German rapacity should be and Germanys lust for power be England used formerly to be a Baling Power of Europe and if through the influence of Eadical Ministers she has lost her proper place among there is only the more reason why the Conservatives should avail themselves of their daily increasing and upset the present When we con sider how many wars have been waged to preserve the balance of power in the apathy with which the encroachments of Germany are regarded by English politicians seems well nigh How long are we to wait before the Gladstone Ministry is to make room for an Administration which shall have some regard for the hononr of and some respect for the safety of her allies 12 Penny Stamps the CHURCH HERALD will be sent post free to any address for one Month from the TBADE3 UNIONISM IN THE SUCH is the expressive title which the Times has so appropriately given to a movement on the part of the servantgirl class of which is about as significant a sign of the times as any that has lately presented If there is one condition of our poorer female population better off than at any one that evidently has it in its own power to be is that of our domestic since domestic servants have were their wages so high as they now are and we were they in the enjoyment of so many so many as most of them have now the opportunity of We observed but the other in a long string of advertisements of Want by the was a still longer list of Servants and nurses were requiring from to and all found whereas there were in the same advertising columns governesses intimating their desire for who would be their advertisements with no more than to some of whom professed to teach draw and three or four languages and who were highly educated no as we all the others are generally as ignorant as they are ill and The of the servant class is infinitely greater as respects living than is that of governesses while the latter generally in due and seemly of the fare that is pro vided for the the former have the run of the must have their beer and their cheese some times twice or thrice and one knows not what else of luxuries and often set no bounds to their ravenous which they have usually every opportunity of We have heard it and we believe with only too much that in many a gentlemans house the eating and drinking in the kitchen far exceeds what is consumed by all the rest of the family put is the almost pampered class that has it to import tradesunionism into the kitchen They have had a as would be seen by a short paragraph in our last publication and no now the agitation has unless it is repressed by some at present unforseen it will soon become At this meeting two servant girls made apparently eloquent glowing with virtuous indignation at their servile and insisting on their full share of those womens rights of which nowadays we hear so They amid great applause we may be to their being obliged to get up before they felt disposed in the and to their being required to go about their household duties so many hours in the any restrictions being placed on the sumptuousness or gorgeousness of their stipulations as to what should be worn not only in the way of dress but of jewellery were and it was thought the mistress had no right to interfere with their apparel in any way so long as it was paid maintained that they were entitled to half a days holiday every and that every other Sabbath they should have to themselves an arrangement which they saw nothing to prevent being carried but if there really was anything to prevent all the servants getting away on one day a full holiday once a fortnight might be sub If there was one thing they appeared more indignant at than it was that their characters should have to be inquired into and it was unani mously said the that it was high time that the domestic servants should form themselves into an whereby they would be enabled to secure information not only regarding the characters of those who might become their but also respecting their general temper and for which purpose an Association of the nature of a TradesUnion was at once determined All very strikingly what we are coming in the course of that enlightened progress which the rampant Liberalism of the day is so actively and so proudly It is fast bringing if it has not already done a realisation of an always popular idea about Jack being as good as his master he has evidently become infinitely as also has Molly than her But it is all part and parcel of that Americanising aa it is that is going on among other classes besides that of our domestic And a correspondent today opportunely reminds us of the that in Republican very they are taught to even the humblest and meanest of the that they have any It is a which seriously demands the careful consideration of the In this thank there is still a sense both of religious and moral obligation as to the rational and wholesome maxim of the Order is
