SOMETHING TO BE PROUD OF! The 18th of June is to Prussia the day when every child at school is reminded of the martial deeds by which Prussia has become what she is. This circum- stance will this year have offered an opportunity for recollecting those exploits which have given the im- pulse for a reorganisation of all armies, and more espe- cially of the French. Before the recent Prussian victories the French people believed it to be an indisputable fact that the military system of Prussia, producing only young soldiers, and imposing the most oppressive burdens on all classes of the population,* was a feeble system even in other countries besides France it was pretty generally supposed that the Prussian army was deficient in solidity and vigour, and that it would be shattered to pieces as soon as it should encounter a large and old army. Therefore the surprise was so great—especially in France, where that view of the case was, as it were, official, for it was propounded in military schools-when the Prussian army, on the field of Sadowa, after an encounter with a large and old army, had suddenly come off vic- torious, having gained a victoy such as nobody would have thought possible, when, unexpected to all, it suddenly exhibited the very picture of perfect solidity, the pattern of a living warlike spirit, unfolding all the qualities which can be demanded of an army, martial readiness, military agility, skill in the use of all modern inventions for warlike purposes and-what was most striking of all-nationality in the best sense of the word.
