They bave only 500 guns, mainly 24 pounders, a n d the French out­ works, which command the batteries, can j destroy them the moment they open fire. Paris has two months’ supply of food. A correspondent writes from Vendotnc : Neither of the French armies, commanded hy C'hanzy a n d Bourbaka, number less than one hundred thousand men, and they can draw reinforcements from the other parts of Franco of nearly double that number. The appearance of th e French armies is favorable. Many o f L he men are, small In stature, but th e majority are large athlotlc follows. I have seen whole compauies of Garde Mobiles which presented th e ap­ pearance of comprising picked men. All that is necessary is the getting of these men accustomed to standing fire.
