The Journal Offieia.lt gives the following by authority of the government : One of the public journals jour-nals of this city still presumes to doubt tlint nnv rpal tvnrlc ia froin? on for the armament and defence of Paris. Although Al-though it may be an act of treason to speak thus in the face of the enemy, such insinuations impose the necessity of a reply, notwithstanding the danger of exposing these secrets. All the material ma-terial necessary for the armoment of Paris is in Paris itself. More than COO cannon are already mounted on the walls of those forts which are likely to be first threatened with an attack aud the work of placing other pieces in position po-sition continues without interruption both by day and night. Yesterday 7,500 workmen were engaged in cutting off the streets leading into Paris ; this work has now been completed and nothing remains but to close up the openings in the walls and place the drawbridges in position. Thousands of laborers are occupied outside the walls on earthworks, mines and ditches, which are to connect and complete the network of fortifications around the capital. These facts and figures we are obliged to give in order to reply to such perfidious and erroneous insinuations, insinua-tions, and to restore the confidence of our good citizens. If such questions should be renewed their authors will have to answer fur their conduct before be-fore a council of war, where they will be subject to all the consequences of the law, for there are times and now more than ever when jastice cannot be permitted to sleep. The public opinion of Europe does justice to the heroic courage of our soldiers and the energy with which the whole nation rises as one man prepared to repair our unexpected unex-pected reverses. Our enemies counted on party division, which would have been treason to the national cause, but the patriotism of tbe Chambers and the country has disappointed their calculations. cal-culations. In the Corps Legislatif the right and left vie with each oilier in their energy to push to the last limit of vigor the spirit of devotion to France. Tho ministry finds it has the active and loyal co-operation of the country's representatives, and the session of the loth of August will distinguish dis-tinguish that day as among the most noble in our parliamentary annals; novir Vt1J tho nntn- ni-to1 im.lnr inspiration of sentiment more elevated. Tho soldiers of the whole nation is lie-side lie-side them aud the hour approaches when the enemy will be chased from the land. A review of the diplomatic situation shows how efficacious has been the effort made to place on a good footing our relations with foreign powers pow-ers on poiuto which touches the present crisis. At the beginning of the contest con-test Pismarck sought to accomplish the following objects : first, to awaken against us the susceptibilities of England Eng-land on the Belgian question; second, to cmcnt an alliance between Prussia and llussia; third, to embroil us with Spain tin ough the Hohenzollern affair, and fourth, to alienate us from Italy ou the lloman question. This entire combination has failed. England fully reassured by our declarations of sincerity sin-cerity has just signed with us a treaty, which is as valuable to us as to Belgium, Bel-gium, aud renders secure our northern irontier. Russia has not signed the treaty as Bismarck cxprcted, and pub-j pub-j lie opinion throughout the empire of the Czar is mo.-t unfavorable to the exaggerated extension of the Prussian monarchy and is far from Wing hostile hos-tile to us. tpain his shown us no thing but cordiality and the same i-true i-true of Italy by agreement with the cabinet of France.
