ctated. His resignation of office was a signal for the return of all the confusion and is order which had preceded his administration, and which finally led to the Revolution. When he was again called to the direction of affairs, it was, in his own mournful words, "too late." Carnot is another memorable example. When he undertook the military administration of the Republic the crisis was truly appalling. The remnant of Dumourier's army was flying from a foe who would have laughed at Thomas's five miles a day; a rebellion in La Verdee menaced the capital of the province with forty thousand armed peasants; three Spanish armies were advancing from different points; town after town after town had fallen; Marseilles and Lyons had separated themselves from the Government, and an English fleet was in the harbor of Toulon.

This truth was strikingly exemplified in France not long before, and during, the French Revolution. When the great financier. Neckar, assumed the control of the finances of France, the Government was most severely pressed by the money derangement; all was confusion, discord, darkness, mysterFrance, the Government was most severely pressed by the money derangement; all was confusion, discord, darkness, mystery. The influence of a master mind produced the most extraordinary change. It was like the rising of the sun dissipating the shades of night. In five years, Neckar changed a deficit of thirty-five millions of francs into a surplus of ten millions without imposing a single new tax of any kind, and under all the burdensome expenses which had been added to those of the former peace establishment. But he was unfettered by any other department, and was clothed with full power to do whatever his ow

We know not to what extent the vessels of the armada were damaged; but it is not believed here that many of them were so much disabled that they cannot be repaired for future use. They fired at long range, as I learn from Colonel Lamb--the monitors about eighteen hundred yards and the wooden hulls about two miles. Two Brooke guns, upon which much reliance was placed, burst after a few discharges; and the Armstrong gun, a magnificent piece, occupied a position on the sea face where it could not be brought to bear upon the enemy except at long intervals. It was fired three times — on the first day, I believe — at three wooden vessels, and at each discharge a vessel was seen to withdraw from the conflict. Colonel Lamb was ordered not to waste his ammunition, in the hope that the fleet would come to close quarters
