Some French statistics of 1864 which have been published strikingly bear out the assertion that the number of men which the Emperor proposes to take annually for the army amounts to almost the entire pro. duct of able-bodied youth ichich France can produce. It will astonish many to learn what a large proportion of the young men who are forced to draw lots every year and liable to serve as recruits in the order of their nnmbers are rejected by the medical inspectors. In 1864 the number of men liable to Berve was 325,000. Of these were rejected 18,106 below the standard height; 30,524 weak constitution, consumption, &c. • 15,988 mutilated from birth, hernia, &c.; 9,100 hump- backed and flat-footed; 6,988 blind or deaf; 963 stammerers; 4,108 insufficient teeth; 5,114 syphilis and cognate diseases; 5,213 goitre and scrofula 2,158 cretins, lunatics, and paralytics; 8,236 divers incapa- cities. The total youth of the year unfit to serve in the army was 109,000 odd.
