To his own criticism of the conduct of Napoleon on this occasion Marmont himself offers the best answer. He had just been speaking of Macdonald's defeat by Blucher at the Katsbach in 1813. It was a case directly in point. Macdonald, the day before the battle, detached a large force to turn Blucher's flank. Blucher took adBlucher's flank. Blucher took advantage of its absence, attacked Macdonald, annihilated his army, and thus completed the first act of the tragedy that found its denouement at Leipzig and its result in Napoleon's overthrow.

This is what Marmont says of it: "Nothing is more dangerous than to make a large detachment before a battle has been fought, a victory achieved, and a decided advantage obtained over the enemy.

These are but small blemishes, it is true; but in as much as they indicate baste and carelessness in the translator, they call for the notice, of the press. We do not mean by any means to detract from the value of his original remarks. Some of them — especially those concerning the Confederate cavalry--deserve, and we hope will receive, the serious attention of the proper department.--Upon the whole we like Mr. Schaller much better in his character of author, than in his character of translator. He does ample justice to our Great Generals, Jackson and Johnston. But there is another still alive whose name is scarcely alluded to, and who, it seems to us, can be passed over in a book illustrative of Confederate glory, with fully as much propriety as Washington's name could be omitted in a history of the American Revolution, and not one bit more.

In this spirit he blames Napoleon for not giving his Guard at Borodino at a time when, Segur says, it would have insured the rout and destruction of the whole Russian army, overlooking entirely the overwhelming reply of Gourgaud upon that subject, and the answer of Napoleon himself, who did not think that the critical time had arrived.

Another objection, that he did not the day before the battle send a heavy force around one of the Russian wings, was also answered by him on the field, when Davoust offered to conduct it with his corps of 40,000 men. His objection was that Davoust would necessarily pose communication with the main body, and thus expose himself to destruction.--This was consistent with all his practice.--In order to units alDavoust would necessarily pose communication with the main body, and thus expose himself to destruction.--This was consistent with all his practice.--In order to units all his forces in 1869 before attacking the enemy in the neighborhood of Ratisbon, he made this same Davonat evacuate that city, and bring his force to his on the flank of the Archduke's march.
