The passage of the Rhine by Jourdan, in 1795, was executed near Dusseldorff, for the same reason which decided thppearance, forced the French nevertheless to the double invasions of 1795 and of 1796, which failed precisely because the double line of operament decided the success at Fleurus and the conquest of Belgium. In 1795, the French committed such great faults, that they were imputed to td the same fate. The lines of Turin, (1706) and those of Mayence (1795), though destined to serve for circumvallation, offer a complete anatrenched camps which the Austrians had established before Mayence in 1795 would have prevented, it is true, the siege of that city if the Frenetachments of Fouquet at Landshut, in 1760, and of Fink at Maxen, in 1795, equally attests how difficult it is to avoid the necessity of makin

It was thus that Jourdan, having passed at Dusseldorf (1795) upon the extreme right of the Austrians, could advance in all security upon the Maine; if he was repulsed it was because the French having a double and exterior line of operations, left a hundred and twenty thousand men paralyzed from Mayence to Basle, whilst Clairfayt repulsed Jourdan upon the Lahn. But this circumstance could alter in nothing the evident advantage which a point of passage procures, established upon an extremity of the strategic front of the enemy. The generalissimo could
