London, March 23.- "The Times" publishes an article, written by Gen eral von Bernhardt for the "New York Sun," which shows a remarkable change of attitude on the part of that gentleman.

Early Failures. A FRENCH RETROSPECT. "DIB WHERE YOU STAND. The first instalment of a "Retros pect of the War,", compiled from offi cial French sources; has been i ublish ed. This document' frankly admits that the northern campaign in France in the eaTly stages of the»war, was characterised by individual failures, rash deployment, precipitate retreats, the premature waste of men, and the {^adequacy of certain troops and lead ers, by which the enemy were aljle to turn difUcult terrain to account and secure the maximum profit. The French Commander-in-Chief (General Joffre) thereafter concentrated his en ergies on a strategic retirement, and . September 1 was fixed as the limit for the retreat and the time suitable for ' the offensive. On September 5 the de i sired situation existed. That niglit General Joffre sent the following mes sage to all the armies:-- » ' j "The hour has now coine.. Ad-. vance at all costs. Die where you I stand rather than give way."
