M M ,iT K .to VOL. I. KXOXVILLE, TENN., WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 21, 1S70. NO. 21. A REVIEW OF THE WEEK. It Is somewhat difllcult to draw -atlhfae-tory conclusions from the conflicting and In some cases non-s-c'n'-enslclal telegrams wc have received from Europe for the past few days. Wc do not consider the engage ments of Tuesday or Wednesday general engagements. "There was unquestionably some desperate fighting, but It was in the main such as wc would naturally expect .from the vigorous and rapid pursuit made by the victorious Germans, lieginning with the first battle about Motz, it seems that ever since the two armies have fought continuously, persistently, and desper ately. Napoleon's first bulletin of Sunday's conflict admitted that his army in cross ing to the left bank of the Moselle were surprised to find the Prussians there in force. Though claiming to have repulsed them subsequent events show that he was worsted. But, while tho retreat of the -French to wards Verdun was intercepte...

For many generatloiiH lias France held a prominent position among the nations of Europe. Science, literature and art have received valued aid from the cllbrts of her sons, and in tho long and fearful history of European warfare the land of Bayard, of Joan of Arc, and of "Marengo's chief," can point to many a glorious battle-field, many a triumphant campaign, many a proud returning of her victorious standards to her gay capital amid the pealing bells, blazing rockets and scattered llowers that marked the joy of that volatile and excita ble nation. ib may she also number not a few crushing and terrible defeats, when with armies slain or scattered, anil n soil over-run by hostile soldiery, she has drain ed to the bitter dregs the cup of humilia tion and oppression.

VOL. I. KNOXYILLE, TENN., WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 31, 1870. ATA, OO If we consider In nil its features tho cam paign which King William Is now prose cuting In tho very heart of France, wo will not find lis parallel In tho history of tho world. There havo been battles more de cisive, victories more brilliant and move ments more rapid, but never in any histo ry of which we have knowledge Is there u record of armies as numerous, as well dis ciplined or as thoroughly organized having been put into the Hold within the same number of days, and meeting with success es as important nnd uninterrupted as those which have thus far been chronicled of the German armies in France. The rulers of Europe have witnessed this unexampled demonstration of power and n perfect mil itary organization with something like consternation. A system of government which at onco combines a greater average Intelligence among tho people and a mili tary system superior to anything the world litis over known Is well worth s...

But to the people of our section of country, who are not accustomed to crime of so grave a nature, the idea of two neighbor women, heretofore peaceable and quiet, becoming so enraged, and so far lost to every sense of womanly conduct and the high characteristic of womanly pru dence, as to rush upon another of tnelr sex, nnd a neighbor, and witli bludgeon and knife cruelly put her to death, is shocking enough to our minds to start...
