ies, that part of the low countries known now as Belgium always had French tendencies. When they finally fell under the house of Burgundy towards the close of the fourteenth century, their rulers were still French, though independent of all but a merely nominal fealty to the King of France. When Charles the Bold was defeated and gain, a little management on the part of Louis XI might have secured the whole low countries to France forever. Wise politicians advised him to marry the Duke of Orleans afterwards Louis XII., to Mary of Bargundy, the daughter of Charles, who succeeded to all his do This would have accomplished the union at once. But we have always observed that otherwise men are sure to overreach themselves. Louis wished the duke to marry his own deformed daughter Joan, and would not hear of the match. On the contrary he formed designs against the possessions of the young duchess, who, to obtain a powerful protector, gave her hand to Maximilian, Emperor of Germany, and
ing force which he had (168,000 men in the commencement,) It is hard to believe that he could do it with any force whatever. Certainly he could not have done it with the addition of McDowell's 15,090 or 20,000 men. Gen. Johnston was perfectly aware of the existence of McDowell's force and believed that he should have to encounter it is addition to that already before him. He had made his dispositions accordingly, and had it come the result would not have been altered in the slightest degree.

McClellan sent the Prince de Joinville to Europe to retail that pitiful lie, as the best apology he could make for his disgraceful failure, and the Prince, with the true Orleans instinct, was glad enough to get away from a cause which he saw to he hopeless. Napoleons who march, in splendid weather, at the rate of five miles a day, don't take cities or beat arming.

Of the twenty-five lions which have fallen victims to Gerard's rifle we are told the appalling stories of "El Haib," the lame one, alias Bon-Acherin-Radiel, the murderer of twenty men; the lion of Krou Nega, the lion of Mejez Amar, the lion of Zerazer, the lioness of El Hanout, &c. He was called by the Arabs "The Terrible Frank." The Ducd' Aumale had given him a brace of pistols, and on his return to France, in 1847, he had an interview with the Duchess of Orleans and the youthful Count de Paris, who, unsolicited, left the room for five minutes, and returning said artlessly, "These villain beasts will finish you one day. A good hunter must be a good soldier. You must be preserved to the army. Accept these pistols to preserve you." In 1855, Gerard returned once more to France with the rank of sub-lieutenant, and received the decoration of the Legion of Honor. He had within the last year or two left France on another expedition into Africa, and he h
