In one respect there 1s a perfect analogy Between the Advance of the Federil array into the revolted states and that of Bonaparte into mean the terrible Servile Alliance in each Case says Klas Flitt in his a life of Napoleon a a due great fear of the russians was that their slaves would Rise up and throw off their bondage and it , therefore an object to prevent their having any communication with the French. They made use of the most improbable and disgusting fables to excite their terror and hatred and of their ignorance Ami degradation to perpetuate that ignorance and a those serfs a As of Horton says a who inhabited the Little towns were Well disposed to head an insurrection against the noblesse. This was the reason Why the russians resolved to set fire to All the towns on the route of the army. Such is the perfectly analogous situation in the two rises.

Writer who we present during most of the Campaign a there is no question that a civil War could have been fomented in Kassis and it was Bonaparte who rejected the offers of insurrection which were made to him during the time he was in it w a a now if Bonaparte was impelled by the importance of not permanently alienating the Czar and Alao by considerations of humanity to avoid All incitement to Servil War the same policy is most Assur i incumbent upon us.

A Utterson however had advanced with his forces As he should have done the result would have been very different. The British attacked Gen. Jackson at new Orlen on sunday in the year 1815. They were repulsed with the loss of some three thousand men. Our loss was trifling. Our Victory was owing to the fact that we had Cotton Hales for a Brea work and had the let est riflemen in the world. The French under Napoleon Boneparte attacked the Duke of Wellington at Waterloo on sunday in 1815. The French were about seventy thousand Strong the British and their allies about eighty thousand. The contest was lie tween veterans and wan one of the most terrific on record. Napoleon would have gained Tho Day had his marshal who had been appointed to Watabu the prussians come to his Rescue or had not Blucher come to the Aid of Wellington. The great baffle of Blenheim was fought on Sun. Day in 1701. The Duke of Marlborough at the head of the British army and his Brave and Power a a your Good Prince commenced attack on the immense forces of the the struggle was bloody and dreadful. The French were Defeated with a loss of from thirty to forty thousand num. The Battle of Blenheim decided Tho Fate of Europe. Ami placed the protestant religion in Power. The Battle of Waterloo Thau a Hundred years afterwards decided the Fate of Europe a second time and sent Napoleon to St. Helena.

Lock Haven free Pras a the army we have received from Harri Borg the res porn of the Tomu Timion appointed by gov. Curtin in reference to the fraud alleged to have been committed against Tho state to the furnishing of supplies for the army. As might very Well have been expected it entirely exculpate the governor and All of the members of the administration from Noy complicity whatever in frauds against or overcharges to the state. The Only paragraph in the report which at All bears upon any per son connected with the administration is the following. Referring to the Purchase of inferior blankets for which it is alleged that too High a Price was paid the commissioners say the planets were perhaps Worth the Price but the Price one Dollar and a half a p air was obviously too Low to procure a Suita ble article even had each Soldier received a pair which Warnot the Case each Soldier receiving Only one Blanket at a Cost to the Stata of Only seventy five cents. No blame can be attached to the manufacturer and it is there fire divided Between adjutant general Biddle by whose Ordor the purchases were made and the quartermasters department to which alone such purchases it will the str it to seen that so far a the a Laos sets a re concerned the great difficulty was that a inferior article was furnished and that the state paid no More for them than they were Worth. To have examined this report carefully and critically and after having done so we arrive at the eoaclu8ion that Sueh complaint As May be made mo9t be attributed entirely to the Peculiar circumstances under which the administration was called upon to act. It �8, without doubt True that in some cases the government of the state paid a larger Price for articles which were required than under other circumstances they could have been obtained for but when the extraordinary circumstances of the Case Are considered this fact is not surprising. Tho report shows that the state has paid out from seven to ten thousand dollars which might have been saved under other circumstances but if we consider the fact that those who had charge of the furnishing of these materials were without experience in reference to their Purchase therees a be no blame attached to them. The governor so soon As his attention was called to the fact that Money was being made out of Ibe state in an undue manner directed his attention to the evils which was said to exist and the report of this co minis fion shows clearly and Coo Olu vely that be was successful in his Jve ios.
