NEWPORT, SATURDAY, OCT. 3, 1857. THE retreat of the "Ten Thousand" has fur- nished one of the brightest episodes in the wide world's story. Told in Xenophon's bril- liant words, how many a noble mind has it de- lighted 1 how many a brave heart has it electri- fied ? We have hung over the details in our youth we have recurred to then in our man- hood. We have fancied we heard the ringing oftheshields; that the shouts of the war song had not entirely died avay and the grand spectacle ever remained of the great dominancy of mind of one master spirit thinking for, acting for, and saving the lives of thousands. Amid the Indian horrors there will still be found bright spots, on which the future historian may rest, and give details to future generations, to show what an heroic race can effect, when left to its own sole and indomitable resources. It is true there has been found no Xenophon to lead weak bodies through numerous and savage hordes. There were no retreats" to make, but there wa ground to be held, positions to be maintained and a courage shown that no difficulty or danger could appal. The "great rebellion" came like the fiery bolt from Heaven, without a single black spot to declare the surcharge of the densely settled cloud. Officers, in their sleep, sunk under the assassins' volley-women, in their loneliness, worse than massacred, by fiends in human shape-and far-off imbeciles and worse, charged with the government of an empire which they knew not how to handle and which they allowed to fall from their feeble hands. Nothing remained but self and self- reliance, and proud in all our misery and woe are we to say that ENGLISHMEN have known how to keep their own, amid all the raging billows of Hell, if we may so speak. They have confronted danger, when Hope shrieked and sighed farewell, and wives fell by husbands' hands when a fate worse than death was im- pending over them. Such a people ere made to rule and to think of depriving them of the Eastern sceptre, has, and will be found, nothing .Ea. more than an oriental dream. We have kept much, aud will recover all. The magnificent army that has left our shores, once upon the soil of Hint^staa» will reach every beleaguered station, and, a. s an -example must be made-aye, that even a Tan.. \edane would inflict, and at the mention of which India for centuries to come will stand appalled- Delhi must be razed. and the ploughshare made to pass over where her proud mosques and minarets now stand. This done, order must be sought for out of chaos, and never were the talents of the statesman more wanted, or more loudly called for. The govern- ment of an empire has to be remodelled and re-constructed. The India Company has utterly failed in its mission-it is a thing of other days-an incubus that has pressed heavily on the body politic, and all but crushed vitality out of it. It sought to make India its feeding farm, and its greatest eftorts were to keep the Queen's subjects from the rich fields conquered by their blood. The cause of the mutiny of a whole army must be minutely and narrowly scanned and, above all, it must be made patent to the world whether foreign intrigue had any- thing to do in inciting the Sepoy to revolt. What Karamain, the truth-telling and eloquent Russian historian, has written, should be remem- bered in Downing-street, if heard, only to be forgotten, in Leadenhall-street. The object and character of our military policy," says Ka- ramain, has invariably been to seek to be at peace with everybody, and to make conquests without war always keeping ourselves on the defensive placing no faith on the friendship of those whose interests do not accord with our own and losing no opportunity of injuring them, without OSTENSIBLY breaking our treaties with them."
THE Peace with which Europe had been blessed for forty years, had induced a great majority of Englishmen to believe that the civilised portion of mankind, at least, had been awakened to the folly and iniquity of war. This plea- sing dream was, however, rudely dispelled by the echoes of Russian cannon on the banks of the Danube, and the protracted struggle before the formidable earthworks of Sebastopol gave the present generation some idea of the state of excitement and anxiety amidst which their fathers passed some twenty years of the Napoleonic period, when the tide of devastation and bloodshed rolled from the shores of the broad Atlantic across the Rhine, the Danube, and the Vistula, only to meet with its first check before the burning towers of Moscow. But there is, so far, a wide distinction between the times of our forefathers and our own During the contest with the Czar, our sympa-. thies were painfully excited for the brave men who, exposed to the inclemencies of wiuter on the bleak Crimean heights, were, with heroic resolution, maintaining the cause of European freedom in the face of difficulties almost unpa- rallelled. At the present moment our sympathies are, if possible, still more painfully excited on behalf of our countrymen supporting the honour of their country on the burning plains of Hindostan, in the midst of hardship and pesti- lance, in the face of overwhelming numbers, with, as yet, no support but their own indomi- table resolution to do and dare and suffer, but never surrender. We can, therefore, comprehend the feelings with which our fathers, in the days when steam and electricity were unknown, awaited news from English armies fighting bravely on the far coasts of Egypt, or amid the Pyrenees. But they had at one period of the mighty struggle a cause of anxiety and interest nearer our doors, in the threatened invasion of the first Napoleon, who covered the heights of Boulogne with masses of armed men, destined, as it was believed, to carry fire and sword through the hitherto peaceful valleys of England. We are, happily, free from such a cause of un- easiness but without wishing to assume the cha. racter of alarmists, we feel it our duty to point out the fact that we are very differently situated in one respect. There can be but little doubt that the difficulty of transporting a large army across the channel alone prevented the Victor of Marengo and Austerlitz from making the experiment of an invasion. If, in his day, steamships capable of conveying thousands of armed men, in the face of wind and tide, had been in existence, there can be but little doubt that there would have been battle-fields in Hampshire or Sussex to attract the steps ot the pilgrim in search of scenes of historic interest. We cannot disguise the fact from foreign nations that, for a second time within three years, Britain has been almost denuded of her garrisons, and could with difficulty muster 10,000 regular soldiers to meet an invading foe. We would not wish to depreciate the utility of the Militia force, but the practice rendered unavoidable of recruiting the regi- ments of the line from its ranks, sadly militates against its efficiency if called upon to take the field. At the same time, we believe that the remedy may be found without doubling our income-tax, and without crippling our national industry, by withdrawing large bodies of men from their ordinary occupations. We feel con- fidently assured that if the Government would but encourage the existing disposition to form Volunteer Rifle Corps throughout the country, ey cou d call into existence a National Army sUffiCIently formidable to check ambititious designs on the part of any power in Europe, or in the world. If our able-bodied middle- classes and respectable artisans were but well armed with the formidable JEnfield Rifle, and regularly trained to handle it with effect, we could spare every soldier in the British Army for foreign service, and rest secure from any. alarm at home. The patriotic spirit of our countrymen only needs direction and encou- ragement, and the obstacles (of no great magni- tude) will easily be overcome. A few hours devoted to target practice in the summer morn- ings, and an occasional day devoted to drilling in bodies, would render the young men of Britain equal to the honourable task of pro- tecting their own hearths and homes from desecration. The feeling of national security would not be the only advantage, for we feel assured that a spirit of manly brotherhood would arise among men banded together for the defence of all that can be most dear and sacred to them, and the chivalrous spirit arising from such exercises would supply a formidable counterpoise to the present struggle for gain which, in the present day, threatens to contami- nate all the sources of our national greatness, and utterly to destroy that social confidence which has hitherto been an Englisman's proudest boast.
