It has long been a complain, that once in the ranks always in the ranks. No matter how gallant a private might behave, it is argued that he never was promoted. New, we cannot say whether this be true or not. But one thing is certain, that in the future the rule of Napoleon which made his army the best the world ever saw, is to be the rule of our army-Several of Napoleon's Fleed Marshals rose from tire ranks.
