Fremont Journal (Newspaper) - October 25, 1861, Fremont, OhioFremont Ohio. A Saab Zyx. editor. Friday october 25, 1861. At Buckeye Hall of evening. A Pat Lotio mooting will be hold at Buck Eye Hall saturday evening by order of tie county military committee. Several Addre sae will be made. Also the Progress of the v2d Rog Mont will Bare ported. Lot the Hall be filled. The finances of the War. The Hoo. James Dickson in an eloquent and patriotic speech delivered at the Union once thug in in Nulford dwelt upon the ability of the country to sustain the expense of the War and upon the Security which the National loan offered a an investment. On this Point be said look at England. You say our expenses Are Largo and so they Are. Some estimate them at one million of dollars a Day. But what were the expenses of England during the War with Napoleon i from 1803 to 1816, with less than eighteen millions inhabitants her expenses wore Ono million three Hundred thousand a Day for a period of thirteen years. For one Hundred Days previous to the Battle of Waterloo her expenses Scro five millions of dollars a Day. Of this vast sum a Large proportion was on the continent of Europe while our entire expenditure is at Homo. If for thirteen years England could expend one million three Hundred thousand dollars a Day abroad cannot we do it for Ono or two years if necessary every Dollar meanwhile remaining at Homo. Interest therefore no loss than patriotism requires us to subscribe for the loan. Large armies. Says York Staats Zeitung that there is is now concentrated on the shores of the Potomac a larger body of troops than has Ever been congregated in modern times except in the Battle of Leipsic. Neither Gustavus Adol plus nor Frederick the great nor washing ton a Wellington nor Bcott bad Ever under his immediate command anything like the number which is now under the command of Gen. Mcclellan. Frederick the great never led into the Field More than 80,000 at a time but Bis great Battles wore fought and won with bodies of troops ranging be tween 30,000 and 80,000. Napoleon at Austerlitz vanquished with 80,000 men the United russian and austrian armies count ing 100,000 men. At Jena and a Vorstadt bore were 130,000 men under the command of the emperor of the French. The Battle of Wagram was fought with 150,000 men against the austrians and in the equally celebrated Battle at Borodino about 120,-00 0 frenchmen were opposed to the rus sians. The decisive Battle of Waterloo was fought with Only 80,000 frenchmen against Bluc Bor and Wellington. But the Battle of Leipsic set in motion a Gigantic army of 00,000 men Napoleon having under his command about 200,000, and the United forces of Russia Austria and Prussia about 290,000. It will appear from this Coromar Ison that the armies which Are confronting each other on the Potomac were exceeded in number Only by those vast armies which on the Plains of Leipsic decided the Fate of Europe what the masses of English people think. A letter from an american in London in the new York methodist contains this Pas Sage the masses the great Middle class the vast body of religious people in England Are i believe with us heart and soul. It is True these classes have Little political Power in the Ordinary and peaceful .1 it t -. R logs of me uru by Consul Uoo. In quiet times a few aristocratic armies govern the country pretty much As they please. But whenever a great crisis comes and the mid dle class is thoroughly roused its movement is Majestic and overwhelming. The free Trade struggle and the y Are cases in Point. Should the ratio party in England be impelled by its. Hatred or its fear of Republican institutions to commit the government to a decided policy against the United states such As the breaking of tha blockade or the of the slave confederacy you May 1 look for another movement of the British people As grand and Majestic As the two notable ones to which i have a desire by Contr a a of the n.
