War with France. The news that we are likely to have a brush with Japan is exciting, but not alarming. The prepara- tions for a war with France -are going on on a grander scale than ever. Workmen in our navy yards, and at many private yards, work night and day. France is a foe worthy of our steel. Still the contest will be a short one. Old Slidell is sharp, and will very likely make Louis Napoleon believe the moon is made of green cheese but it will be a bitter pill for his race to have a war with the North. He will not have 1,000 men in the South as allies. If either party permits an outside nation to meddle with our quarrel I shall be surprised. We have all adopted the Monroe doctrine, that no European state shall change a government on this continent. What dastards and wretched cowards we should be were we to permit Louis Napoleon to set up an emperor in Mexico! I have an idea that the earth will fall before it will be permitted. One thing is quite certain, three months have fully prepared us for a war with France, and it can be carried on without interfering with our home quarrel. We shall have no English seamen on board French vessels, as is the case with Confederate steamers.
