The Conference Of London Has Sat Upon An...
The Conference of London has sat upon and finally hatched a peace , which the politicians hope may grow up till it becomes a hale and hearty specimen of the dove kind . All the interests of almost all the European Powers is now against war , for since peoples have possessed a voice in governments , the claims of
industry have perforce been admitted , and as it is upon industry that the burdens of war have always fallen , and while the laurels have been reserved for others , the indisposition to fight for anything short of actual necessity has become an article of faith of the European credo . And even in chose countries where the
less are always made to give way to the more glorious ideas there are reasons for avoiding at present the chances of war . This one is reorganising her army and keeping down her laterals—that has an Exhibition , with millions of capital engaged ; and thus by common consent the London Conference has been
allowed to give effect to the desire to wait a little longer . But the war is not abandoned , only postponed , and the hachet is so ill-buried that the head of it is positively sticking out of the ground for those who have eyes to see it . Throughout France there is a deep and stinging discontent with the course of events ,
which the past few months has increased rather than diminished , and there is besides a failure in the belief that the Emperor is the wisest of men and the first of politicians . Financial matters are very wrong too . The Paris and Lyons Railway , a fortnight since , discharged 30 , 000 men in one day , for want oif
capital to keep them employed ; there are ugly tales abroad as to the manner in which the supplies were found , or rather taken for the Mexican expedition , and altogether there is a very disagreeable heap of grievances which must somehow or other be covered and condoned . The only means of doing all this at
once is a war , and at the present moment nothing would be more popular than a war with the Power which is now overshadowing the eastern and northern frontier of France . The French army too has received additions quite lately , and that from sources and in a manner which is not usual . Altogether
we would recommend the gallery not to applaud till the end of the piece , and to wait and see what the closing of the Exhibition will bring forth .
