d at Lugo; that of Marchand at Corunna and Betanzos; meanwhile one fine night those companies of the train disappeared, men and horses, without our ever being able even to learn what had become of them; a single wounded Corporal escaped, and assured us that peasants, conducted by priests or monks, had massacred them. Four months afterwards, Marshal Ney marched, with a single division to the conquest of the Asturias, and descended by the valley of the: Navia, whilst Kellerman debouched from Leon by the route of Oviedo. A part of the corps of Romana, which guarded the Asturias, defiled by the slopes of the heights which enclosed the valley of the Navia, at a league at most from our columns, without the Marshal knowing a word of it; at the moment when the latter reached Gijon, the army of Romana fell in the midst of the isolated division of Marchand, which, dispersed to guard all Galicia, came near being taken separately, and only escaped by the prompt return of the Marshal to Lugo.

either from the configuration of certain theatres of war, or because that every line of offensive operations somewhat extended in depth, requires to be well secured on its flanks. In the first case, the frontier of Turkey and that of Spain might be cited as an example. Armies which should wish to cross the Balkan or the Ebro would be forced to have a double front of operations: the first for facing the valley of the Danube, the other for showing front to forces coming from Saragossa or from Leon. All considerably vast countries present more or less that same necessity; for example, a French army marching — in the valley of the Danube will always have, either on the side of Bohemia, or on the side of the Tyrol, need of a double strategical front, as soon as the Austrians should have thrown into these provinces corps sufficiently numerous to give it serious uneasiness. Those countries alone, whose frontiers should be very narrow on the side of the enemy, would be exceptions, becaus

; the configuration of the frontiers, the fortresses which are found there, the greater or less space which an army would find for moving, and re-establishing its direct communications with the centre of the State, are so many considerations which influence the opportuneness of these operations. Spain, amongst others, offers very great advantages for this system. If a French army penetrate by Bayonne, the Spaniards have the choice of basing themselves upon Pampeluna and Saragossa, or upon Leon and the Asturias, which would make it impossible for their adversary to direct himself towards Madrid, leaving his narrow line of operations at the mercy of the Spaniards. The frontier of the Turkish empire upon the Danube, would offer the same advantage for that power, if it knew how to profit by it. France is equally very proper for this kind of war, especially when there does not exist in the country two political parties which may aspire to the possession of the capitol, and render
