sian government declares that they
will make no attack unless they are
fired upon. 'lhat declaration is
about equivalent to that of the road
aenf, whosajs that he will not in
jure anyone if the treasure-box is
quietly passed down. The English
representative at Cabul, Sir Peter
Lumsden, has advised the Afghans
to exercise the Christian virtue of
forbiiranc. It looks as if peace be
tween Russia and England depended
upon the self-command of the fierce
mountaineers, subject to the ameer
of Cabul. It seeinn to be admitted
that a voliey from an overhanging
cliff in those steep defiles is all that
is necessary to provoke an order to
march from the Russians, audthat
march can have hut one meaning -war
It is a part of the subject that the
Afglians do not love the British over
well. They have frequently been at
war with them. Once they massa
cred a small army aud only a single
man escaped to tell the tale in the
nearest British cautonmeut. Afghan
istan has long been a sort of buffer
to keep the English and Russians
from running foul of each other. If
it should be pushed aside aud the
rival nations should at length meet
face to face, a struggle is at hand
which will shake the earth. The de
nouement may be postponed for some
time yet. But the outlines of a world
drama are certainly beginning to un
The English have made a failure
of it in Egypt Au invasion under
taken in behalf of a few British bond
holders has kindled a Moslem relig
ious war. Tliere are two hundred
mi lions of these fierce fanatics in
the world. Forty millions are located
in India. These latter constitute the
dangerous element in that vast de
pendency. They are wholly different
from the effeminate Hindu. They
were the artificers of the rebellion
against English authority over twen
ty years ago. The3e ianalica are not
ignorant of the fact that the Mahdi
is having his own way in the Soudau
lhat Gordon and Khartoum have
fallen, and that even Wolseley, who
once fixed the date on which he
should dine in the coveted city, is
himself sore pressed. It does cer
tainly appear to be more than a co
incidence that just at this juncture
the Russian outposts should appear
on the Afghan frontier, declaring
that they will not open hostilities,
unless fired upon, but advancing all
the same in the direction of Herat.
Tliere are other movements in other
parts of the world which appears to
dove-tail with the proceedings of the
Russians. France is indulging in a
sort of informal scrimmage with
China. Neither side has yet declared
war. There is in fact, nothing going
on except a concentration of 1 rencu
troops and Fench ironclads in Chi
nese waters. The movements or tue
French so far have been almost in
explicable. They are not those of the
first military nation in Europe. If
the purpose were really to humble
China, a sudden dash would have
been made on Peking. Tliere it would
have been easy enough to dictate
terms of peace. But instead of that,
the French have merely engaged in
a bombardment now aud then. The
war they are carrying on with the
Chinese is just the sort of a war that
can never be brought to nn end. It
has long been quite evident that
France does not want the difliculty
settled. In all the negotutions that
have taken place, there has been an
evident purpose on her part to com
plicate rather than straighten out
If inquiry shoald be made as to
what has lieen affected by the French
in'China so far, we shonld say, noth
ine but the straining in the relations
betweeu that country and England.
The refusal 01 tne .crnisu autnoruies
at Hongkong to allow theFrench war
vessel to refit; and the subsequent ac
tion of the French iu declaring rice
contraband of war, have created a f nc
tion out of which any complication
that may be desired can be evolved.
It is not possible to define clearly
what part France is to play in the
comine struggle. But there seem to
be positive relations between that
nation and Russia. The almost sim
ultaneous appearance of the two na
tions in the Orient could hardlv have
been the result of accident Is France
to supplant England in China, as
Russia is to supplant her in India, or
is there to be a Enropeau compensa
tion for the first-named? These are
questions, however, which only those
who are pulling invisible strings in
Europe can answer. The outside
world have to leave to time the solu
tion of these enigmas.
But with Russians in India and the
French in Chino, the whole story is
not told. The Germans are rudely
jostling England in Africa. They
have also seized islands and territo
ries in the South Pacific, upon which
the hearts of the Australian Colonies
were set We do not see that there is
any fantastic speculative weaving in
the assumption that there is a set

IL'STICK TO GRANT.
VoHiin wliinli tlii linnst1 of lenre-
sentatives has done at the session just
closed reflects more credit upon it
than the passage of the bill retiring
Gaueral Grant with full pay of the,
general of the army. This ackuowl-'
edgement of the services of tne man
who broke the back of the rebellion
at Vicksbnrg and followed up this
great victory with the campaigns
which ended at Appomattox shows
that the Democratic house can rise
above mere party feeling and take a
broad view of what national honor
demands. The men, like Rosecrans,
who went out of their way to dispar
age Grant's achievements as a soldier;
and to impute dishonorable ucts to
him in his financial troubles, have
dug their own political graves. Their
slanders have been referred to the
true cause- -jealousy 61 a successful
soldier, who always showed himself
superior to any petty envy or malice.
The relief which comes to Grant in
his old age may be o littlo material
benefit to him, as he stands in the
shadow of death, but the nation's rec
ognition of his services -tardy though
it may be -will cheer his last days
and take the sting from suffering,
brought upon him by the incompe
tence of those in whom he trusted.
The action of the Democratic house
reveals the cheering fact that parti
sanship does not always rule in our
national councils and that republics
are not always ungrateful.
