Louis Napoleon.

The vast expense that Louis Napoleon is putting England to, in order that her means of defence may keep pace with the increase of French capacities for aggression, may ultimately wear out the long-suffering patience of the British public. That people is of all people the most practical and pacific, but it is just such a character which will revolt at long keeping up a war expenditure in time of peace. Seventy millions a year is a heavy pull even upon such a long purse as that of John Bull. He may naturally inquire, how long is this sport to be kept up, and the author to be tolerated?
